trauss was secretary Iof the
ce lasti year. .



Among the matters, discussedtby
the Board in Control of Athletics at a.
meeting held yesterday afternoon was
the matter of a trainer.
Although ,no definite information
was given 'out by the board it is un-
derstood that a trainer who will also
act as assistant track coach will be
appointed though the name of the man
will not be divulged until the contract
is signed.
Approve Blankets
The petition submitted to the board
to give blankets to athletes- receiving
two or more "Ms"was approved. Un-
der this plan any man receiving two
or more "Ms" will be givenj a blanket
with indications as to the number of
"Ms" won during his college career
and the sports in which they were ob-
tained will be given at the end of the
last year of his eligibility.
It is the hope of the originators of
this custom to make the event as-big a
one as Cap night and one which will
receive as much fame as Cap night.
The petition relative to hockey,
which according to a member of the
board did not ask that it be made a
Varsity sport but only that there be
an informal team next year, also re-
ceived the approval of the board. A
petition submitted by- the swimmers
,was acted on favorably. 'By this ac-
tiofi the expenses inc'urred in using
the Y. M. C. A. tank will be sustained
by the Athletic association.

Debaters, who will participate in
the Mid-west League debates have
been chosen in the final eliminations.
Friday afternoon they presented the
first drafts of the final' form of the
case before Professor Friday of the
Economics department. Prof. Leos
Sharfman of the same depart'ment
will hear the case Monday. After this
for the remainder of the week the
two teams will participate in head-
on debates.
The league's question this ,year is,

night at Madison. The members of
the negative team are 3. W. Hindis,

Washington, Feb. 28. - The fight
4n Japan for universal suffrage result-
fed in the dissolution of the Japanese
diet last Thursday by Imperial de-
crees. The emperor's action was
taken after request of Premier Hara,

It followed violent scenes in the
lower house of Parliament, when the
police fougUt members of the party
and a military force was called upon
to restrain the crowds outside, at-
rteipting to break into the build-
.ing. The demonstrations ontinued
throughout the night. A new election
of members of Parliament is to be
held within five months under the
terms of the Japanese constitution.
Although excluding the entire body
Af labor, farm laborers and mechan-
ics, the measure was describ as a

ther extension.

Closes Season by Defeating Detroit
Rayls 7 to 1; Teams Show
Rare Form
In a fitting climax to its highly suc-
cessful season, the Michigan informal
hockey team, last night, defeated the
sppedy Detroit Rayl sextette by a.
siore of 7 to 1.
The game which according to all
advance dope had promised to be the
hardest one- of the year lived up to
expectations. The crowd, which in-
cidentally was the largest of the sea-
son, was treated to some excellent
hockey. The score does not give one
the correct impression of the tight-
ness of the game. Practically all of
the scoring was done in the first per-
Michigan Fast
Michigan started with its character-
istic rush, and within two minutes
after the opening whistle Anderson
caged the first goal. He followed this
up three minutes later with another.
Kerr; maintaining the speed shown by
Anderson, coped another point for the
team. Anderson not to be outdone,
nabbed his third and final point of
the evening five minutes before the:
period ended. A half minute later
Barkell scored a pretty goal from the
middle of the floor.
The Rayls bristling with fight, came
back in the second period four minutes
after the whistle with their first and
only score of the night.. Barkell
counted once in this period, and once
more for the closing point of the game
in the third period.
Barkell again was the stellar per-
former of the evening, his all around
work meaning much to the Michigan.
sextette. The teams appeared to be
well balanced, and even when 'all of
the regulars had been replaced by
the substitutes the Rayls were admir-
ably held in check.
Mohan, of the Detroiters,' failed to
make the showing expected of him,
but was instrumental in goaling the
only score for the Rayls, when he
passed the puck to Silden who scored.

(By P. A. S.)
Although she may not possess the
mature authority of one or two of her
sister contraltos, Carolina Lazzari pre-
sented a program of songs last night
in Hill auditorium in a manner that
bids strong for recognition when con-
tralto voices are tlie subject of con-
There is a pleasing sincerity and
lack of- the "sensational" about Ma-
'dame Lazzari's voice that takes well
with her audience and, though she
made no. attempt to startle them with
vocal acrobatics, she did display a
confidence and security in what she,
did sing that would put to shame
many a more ambitions soloist.
Free ;from Th oiiess\
No dubious tones mredher high
notes and in the lower register she
was h'appily free from that harsh
throatiness which immediately be-
trays the shortcomings of a contralto
who has wandered beyond her depth.
Schubert's "A"e Maria," the most
familiar number of the evening, was
sung with a simple reverence that quite
satisfied those who awaited it with
anticipation. A "Samson" aria was
substituted for Grieg's "Autumnal
,Gale" and brought for an encore a
merry little tune about the sea and a
road which seemed to lead to it. The
swinging "Lieti Signor" aria from
Meyerbeer's "Les Huguenots" proved
to be the piece de resistance of the
program and brought another encore.
Ferrate's "Night and the .Curtains
Drawn" and Ganz' "Love in a Cot-
tage" pleased mightily with their
frank simplicity and MacFaydens
"Cradle Song" deserved-'the repetition
it was given. Densmores "Roadways'r
and an encore completed the program.
Accompanist Good
Madame Lazzari and an accompan-
ist, Isaac Van Grove, who, by the
ray, knows the difference between ac-
companying a' sloist and playing a
solo, gave a program which quite
earned for them the warm reception
they received.
