Your Partln the
Solution of the
Athletic Problem
The emergency smoker held bye
alumni Saturday night in Deroit
went over big, reorts sy. IF-other
words, the alumni of the Univexity of
Michigan have begun a campaign
which means that their share of work
towards solving the athletic situation
here will be done.,
Now it remains for the student body
to swing into action in a concerted
effort to'make Michigan supreme in
the west beginning at'once. The stu-

debts can do it by urging men to re-

There has been little talk of the U.

To complete the object of such pro-

Detroit Alumni Take Action To
Investigate Local Athletic Situation
Eight hundred Michigan alumniof Detroit, supported by the University
band, coaches, quartette, cheer leaders, and members of the Varsity foot-
ball team, took a constructive step toward betterment of 'the Michigan ath-
letic situation at their big emergency smoker Saturday night in the De-
troit Board, of Commerce, when it was decided to appoint a committee of
five alumni to investigate the conditions at once, heir complaints, and rec-
ommend action.I


Trolley poles felled acrossj the track in the storm prevented the arrival
of two specials which were to have taken the campus delegation to the
smoker. Many missed the event entirely, but the team, band, cheer lead-
e'rs, and coaches finally managed to arrive on the Michigan Central. Cut-,
ting of all telephone and telegraph lines west from Detroit prevented news
of the smoker from reaching Ann Arbor, until Sunday's issue of the. The
Daily had gone to print,
Judges Ira W. Jayne and "Bill".Day divided the forensic honors of the
evening. Judge Day, as toastmaster, kept events moving and maintained,
with the assistance of the band, quar-
-mnltette; and cheer leades, the highest.
