Alumni Interest in the newer
projects of the University was again
demonstrated, when it was announc-
ed yesterday in the office of President
Marion L. Burton that $5,000 has been
given by a donor, who requested that
his na me not be published, for the
continued maintenance of a fellowship
in creative art, in. the niversity
President Buton i mediately wired
to Robert Frost, the resident poet who
has conducted the work during the
past year, an invitation to return to
Ann Arbor. Mr. Frost's reply sent
from his farm home in Bennington,
Vt., read: "Arrangement most agreea-
ble'as you must know. Thanks for our-
selves and whatever we may repre-
sent." Mr. Frost and his family will
return to Ann Arbor within a short
President Burton was especially
pleased In accepting the fund which
makes the return of Robert Frost pos-
sible, because it means the continu-
ance of a project which makes the
University "a leader in the arts."
"Within two years," he said, "the
experiment has proved successful and
the gift which makes it possible for
us to continue the work, is grate-
fully acknowledged. The work which
Robert Frost has accomplished is, ac-
cording to the statements of many
students, one of the best things they
have experienced during the -college
President Burton added that the
maintenance of the fellowship dem-
onstrates that the University is fun-
damentally an "educational" in stitu-
S'on, The purpose of a poet's rest-
dence in Ann Arbor is not to teach
students to wr.t poetry but "to make
them think, to understand the reali-
ties of life."
Mr. ,frost, ,ho Iskn own asthe
modern "New England" poet, con-
ducted talks with groups of students,
visited social centers on the campus
and delivered public addresses during
the 'past year. He is a graduate of
Dartmouth university and received
degrees from Harvard at the begin-
ning of last year.
He first became Michigan's resident
poet through the'generosity of former
,Gov. Chase S. .Osborn. Previously he
was a professor of. English in Am-
herst -college.
The re-establshment of the creative
art fellowship this year is one more
step toward an attempt to malie it a
permanent part of the University
4 endowment of $100,000, it is etimat
ed, would assure its permanence and
permit expansion of the work.
Actual progress in the production of
plays by the class in play production
under the direction of Prof. Richard
Hollister of the public speaking de-
partment, will start this afternoon
from 4 to 6 o'clock when all those
who are interested may try out for
the casts of the various plays, which
will be produced by the department.
Any perons having any acting abil-
ity are requested to appear for trial.
Men especially are wanted due to the
fact that only a few men are present
In the class while practically. a suf-
fiicient number of women are available
to handle all femaleparts Tryouts
will also be held on Wednesday aft-
ernoon at the same hours.
Many plays will be given at dates
to be announced later, but the larg-
est share of the work of the class
will center around "Much Ado About
Nothing," which will be staged during
the econd weelk of January. All
performances will be put on in the
auditorium of University Hall.
A small popular admission fee will
be charged for the performances and
the money derived by this means,

according to Professor Hollister, will
be ued to defray the expenses incur-
red by the class for costuming and
stage properties incidental to the suc-
cessful production of the plays.

Washington, Oct. 9.-The American

opening of the annual convention of
the organization, that its executive
committee has placed into the hands

of the' organization's funds and facil-

day by the-president.
The committee's decision was that
the "job can be done," Chairman
Payne announced. "If it takes all the'
money, we have, we shall spend it,"
he declared, "If it takes more we will
get it."
Chairman Payne said that no appro-

the seats which have sold most rap-
idly are those which bring the high-
est price. Almost every seat down-

Ted Sullivan Takes Beginners
Through Paces in Seach For
New Material
Michiganis intramural department
has initiated a new policy in the de-
velopment of intramural work in se-
curing Coach Ted Sulivan to personal-
ly supervise cross country running in
the University, according to Elmer D.
Mitchell, head of the Department of
Intramural Athletics. Twenty-three
men appeared at the initial turnout
yesterday afternoon, the largest num-
ber in several years.
It is the plan of the intramural de-
partment to push this sport as never
before by the training of all those who
are interested and choosing men who
stand for the Varsity and freshmen
cross country and track squads. No
man will be discarded from the work
and each person will get the individual
attention of Coach Sulivan.
Sulivan said that those who report-
ed yesterday afternoon were very en-
thusiastic and were feeling fit when
they returned from the run- "In order
not to injure the men,"' he declared,
"we ran a short distance, walked, took
calisthenics and deep breathing ex-
ercises. Every man returned in first
class condition and without any phys-
ical injury, an unusual thing for the
first day."
Mr. Mitchell believes it to be a great
thing both for the development of
Varsity stars and the training of a
great number into better physical con-
dition. He said, "It is a great im-
'provement over the haphazard meth-
od formerly used to develop a cross
country team. Previously, the men
had no idea how to run or how to
train. Consequently they ran too vig-
orously the first time and lost enthus-
iasm. Now men will stay out, because
we have a coach, who has made a life
study of the work, to give his person-
al attention to each man who wishes
to take part in the sport. I believe
that it will practically eliminate the
necessity-'of Coach Farrell spending
from two weeks to a month getting
his men in condition to run. It is the
first step in the great intramural
movement not only to get athletes into
competition, but to develop athletes."
The officials hope for a double turn-
out next time and believe they will
have more than 400 men in training
soon. Four meets are planned for
November, an all-campus meet, a fra-
ternity meet, an independent met, and
a freshman meet. Everyone who
wishes to take part in cross country
running should report to Coach Sulli-
van at 4 o'clock tomorrow at Water-
man gymnasium.

Original 1,500 Block Seen to Be In-
sufficient to Seat All Michigan
Such a rapid and persistent de-
mand for tickets for the Ohio State
game at Columbus on Oct. 21 has
come into the Athletic association of-
fices that it has been discovered that
the original Michigan allotment of
15,000 seats will -not nearly be
enough to take care of all the Wol-
verine rooters, and an extra 3,500
tickets have been reserved.
This precaution to see that every
Michigan student and alumnus, who
is intending to follow the team down
into Ohio to battle the Buckeye, has
a place in the stadium was taken by
*Coach Fielding I1. Yost. when" he
learned of the constant stream of ap-
plications which was flowing into the
office, so soon after the announcement
of the through train service. Exact
figures on the sale so far are not
available asthere has not yet been
time to have a count taken but it is
known that more tickets have been
mailed out of the offices so far this
year than in any year before.
The extra, seats, which come to
3,500 in all, were secured by Coach
Yost while in Columbus last Saturday
attending the Ohio State-Wesleyan
game. ' Three thousand of these are
in addition to the 15,000 block al-
ready reserved and will sell for the
same price as the others, $2.50. The
other 500 are box seats which will
sell for $3.50.
In speaking of the ehavy attendance
which thegames this .year are draw-
ing, the coach says, "The demand for
football tickets is larger this year
than ever before in Michigan's foot-
ball history. This is true of the 11-
linois and Wisconsin games as well
as the Ohio State game. There wi'll
be no question about there being a
capacity crowd at all three of these
The latest addition to the already
largest block of seots that Michigan
has ever had at any away-from-home
game, will bring the total number up
to 18,500, a tremendous crowd when
viewed at a foreign school. The lat-
est batch of tickets which the coach
decided to reserve was brought back
after the Ohio State-Wesleyan game
by Coach Yost, Goebel and Uteritz
who are said to have carefully guard-
ed them all the way from Columbus.
These will allow plenty of room for
the block "M" which the . Booster's
club backed by the Athletic associa-
tion is fostering. The "M", it is re-
ported, will take.up more than 1,500
Heralded as a football number and
announced as a special "Frosh Num-
ber" the initial issue of Chimes, the
campus opinion magazine, will be
placed on sale on the campus tomor-
row. Carrying this double threat as
it does, those responsible for this
first number are prophesying that it
will take the campus by a storm some-
thing like that which surrounded the
Case game.
