Museum And Wllianiu 1 1Cleients
Library Among Those
Continuing their tour of inspection
of the University, members of the
ways and means committee of the
Michigan House of Representatives
visited the Museum, buildings recent-
ly completed, the William L. Clements'
Library, and the administrative of-
fices yesterday morning.
The appropriation bill, requesting
$3,192,700 for buildings and improve-
ments at the University in the next
two years, was introduced in the
House last Monday, and the ways and
means committee came to Ann Arbor
Fr'iday afternoon to investigate the
needs of the University as set forth
in the -bill.
The largest item calls for $450,000
each -year for a new museum and
equipment. The committee spent most I
of its time yesterday morning inspect-
ing the museum and the annex.
The legislatives also investigated
the offices of the University in con-;
nection with the item of the bill which
calls for $300,000 each year for an
administrative building. The site has
not been definitely selected, but the
vacant lot in front of thO South de-
partment of the hospital has been
considered. This site offers a central
location between the buildings on the
campus, the hospital, power house, and
the Buildings and Grounds depart-
The committee inspected the Obser-
vatory and the architectural building
Friday afternoon. These build in)
are also affected by the bill, provi-
sions of which call for $260,000 the
first year and $215,000 the second year
for an observatory and equipment, and
$200,000 each year for an architectural
building. In addition the bill pro-
vides $500,00 for land the first year
and $327,700 the second year.
It is expected that the House con-
mittee on ways and means will receive
the bill by the first of the week from
the University committee which has
been considering it. The ways and
means committee will study the bill
for several days before it is acted
upon in the House and sent to the I
Following a luncheon yesterday
noon at the Union some of the mem-
llers of the committee left for Detroit.
The remaining members returned to
Lansing late yesterday afternoon.

possible addition of a third group

for the rest of this year by the Ann
Arbor Playmakers. As in the past,
all of these plays will be given in the

ered the most competent player con-

Program Includes Numbers Whichj
Won Praise at Intercollegiate
Contest in Chicago.

Returning to its traditional concert
of past years, the University Glee club
will offer a mixed program of popular
and classical numbers next Thursday4
night in Hill auditorium. The aim ofI
the club will be to please everyone,
according to Theodore Harrsison, of
the School of Music, director, and for
this reason both light and classical
music will be-included.
The program will open with a series
of Michigan songs, as was customary
in the past, including the "Victors."
"Varsity" and others. For the lovers
of comic opera songs of the synco-
pated type, a "Midnight Sons" quar-
tette will sng popular numbers, and
a promnent campus dance orchestra,
to be announced later, will play.
Other specialty numbers are also be-
ing planned.
Of the better class of music, but of
a popular nature, will be the "Torea-
dor Song," from Carmen. Barre Hill,
'26, who has sung for the Union Opera
and other campus productions. will
be the soloist.
The Glee club will sing two num-
bers on which it received a perfect
score in interpretation at the recent
intercollegiate contest at Chicago.
Michigan was the only school of the
14 entered to achieve this honor. The
two songs are "The Cossack," by
MacDowell, and "Laudes Atquei Car-
mina," by Stanley.
For the lovers of the classical in
music, the club will sing "The Om-
nipotence," by Schubert, accompanied
by the organ. An organ solo will also
be played by Dewight Steere, '26, the
accompanist of the Glee club.
The Varsity quartette will perform,
and other numbers, of both a hunom-
ous and serious nature, will be an-
nounced later.
Tickets are 50 cents, and all pro-
ceeds will be devoted to paying the
expenses of the Glee club during the
next year.

TOTAL 51 1-2
Colt Team Places First In Eight
Out Of Twelve Events On
By W. H. Stoneman
Northwestern high school of Ile-
troit walked off with the first annual
Michigan indoor interscholastic track
meet last night in Yost field house,
amassing a total of 51 1-2 points,
while Cass Tech, its nearest opponent,
was able to collect but 14.
In winning the first event of its
kind ever held under the auspices of
the Michigan athletic association the
Colt team took first places in eight
of the twelve events on the program
and took other points in four of the
same eight events. The Northwest-
ern athleltes not only exhibited one
of the most perfectly balanced prep
school track teams in the history of
Michigan athletics but their individual

performances were exceptionally bril-
liant, and the marks set by the athletes
promise to stand as meet records for
many seasons to come.
The other teams entered in the car-
nival were all well down in the scor-
ing list. Ann Arbor high school's
team scored in seven events and col-
lected 9 1-2 points for third place
while Austin high of Chicago which
had been expected to make things
interesting for Northwestern was a
.poor fourth with seven points. De-
troit Central, Toledo Waite, Coldwater,
and Kalamazoo Central were all tied
for fifth place with six points, Detroit
I Southwestern was eighth with 5 1-2
points and Highland Park came next
in order with 5 points. Seven other
schools including Flint Central, De-
Itroit Northern, Battle Creek, Niles,
Detroit Eastern, Kalamazoo Normal
high, and Detroit Northeastern com-
pleted the list of teams scoring, most
of them with three points or less.
Charles Ross of Detroit Northwest-
ern was the individual star of the
meet with first places in the fifty
yard dash and the low hurdles, both
of which events drew exceptionally
large fields. The Colt sprinter won
both events by safe margins and made
fast time in both, running the dash in
5.6 seconds and the hurdles in 7 sec-
onds flat. Carlson, of the same team,
set a record that will probably stand
for years when he tossed the shot
47 feet- 4 3-4 inches, one of the best
marks that has ever been made in this
event in a Michigan interscholastic
meet. Don Seegar, also of the winn-
ing team, was a third performer who

raided his team in its smashing vie-
I tory. After winning the half mile
from a fast field in 2:09.6 he came
, back 20 minutes later and ran his
s team to'victory in the medely relay.
