Initiation tIc rrors1
Ten members of the junior engine-C

Triangles, honor junior engineering
sodiety, yesterday afternoon and were
officially initiated into the order at a
banquet last night in the Union. 1
The 4engineering arch was the scene
of the scrubbing; as it received its
semi-annual cleaning at the hands of
the neophytes, who thus demonstrated
their ability and worth of membership
in the ancient organization.
Those initiated into the society yes-
terday are I. W. and W. A. Kuenzel,
J. H. Lovette, K. McIntyre, T. King,
J. L. Buell, R. C. Baker, W. E. Ber-

While these events were transpir-

Sphinx was unfolding its secrets to,
ten members of the junior literary
class who proved worthy by a long,
weary journey down the river Nile.i
Many trials and tribulations were un-
dergone in the duration of the peril-
ous journey, but at last the men
reached their destination.
The men who entered the portals
of the mighty organization, having
proved their right to do so by passing
through the initiation rites, are: P.

The chaperone's platform and orches-

Dancing will be continuous from
10 o'clock until 2:30. Special fruit
punch, cakes and wafers will be
served from three different tables

Opening the program of special lec-
tures which are planned for the Sum-,
mer session, Lionel Curtis, a fellow
of All Souls' College, Oxford, and lec-
t-,rer on Colonial history in New Col-
lege, Oxford, wll speak in Ann Arbor
June 20. Mr. Curtis, who this sum-
mer will be the British representative
at the Political Science Conference
at Williamstown, was appointed spec-
ial lecturer to the Summer sesson
through the efforts of Prof. C. H. Van
Tyne of the history department.
Mr. Curtis, editor of the Round
Table magazine, was educated at New
College, Oxford, and served in the
South African war where he exer-
cised great influence in bringing to-
gether the better factions in South
African influence, making possible
the South African Union. He sug
gested some of the compromises and
political devices which allowed th
organization of the Union. Later, he
and other members of the Roun
Table planned the Government of In
dia Act of 1919; and as secretary in
the colonial office, he aided consider
ably in settling the arrangement wit]
the Irish Free State through which
the present relations between Eng
land and Ireland were established.
During Mr. Curtis many years i
r public life, he has held many posl
tons, having been town clerk of Jo
hannesburg, assistant colonial se
retary to the Transvaal for local gov
- ernment, member of the Transvaa
legislative council, secretary to th
s Irish conference in 1921, and adviso
on Irish affairs in the colonial offic
n 1921-'24. He is also the authoro
several books.
Enroute to the political scien
conference at Williamstown, M

Iowa, Illinois, and Detroit Schools
Are Favorites For Winner
.Of Two-Day Meet
Three hundred and sixty-five ath-
letes, representing 47 high schools of
five states will compete in the twenty-
fifth annual interscholastic track
meet to be held today and tomorrow
on Ferry field. The preliminary
trials will start at two o'clock thi
Washington High, of Cedar Rapids,
Iowa, winner of the meet held last
year, will again be represented by a
large aggregation of prep stars.
Northwestern High of Detroit, holder
of the indoor interscholastic champ-
ionship, will be represented by a
strong and well balanced team, and
is conceded to be one of the favorites.
Danville, who tied for premier hon-
ors in the Illinois state meet last
week, brings an exceedingly strong
team' of stars, and is expected to vie
strongly for first honors.
Both national and state high
school track records will be seriously
threatened by one of thelargest and
greatest fields to compete in the out-
door track classic. New track rec-
ords were scarce in the meet last
year on account of the inclement
weather. If the present weather con-
tinues to prevail for the two day
meet, the old marks seem doomed to
be broken, and new ones established.
Hamm, of Lonoke, Arkansas, one
of the greatest high school track
men in the country, will strive to
break his own national broad jump
- record of 24 feet 2 2-8 inches. The
- Arkansas star has been credited with
a distance of 25 feet 6 inches in three
e practice trials.
- The hundred yard dash draws one
d of the largest entries of the meet.

e Detroit; Tolan, of Cass Tech, Detroit;
d Blocker, of Ann Arbor; Stamats,, of
- Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Hamm, of
n Arkansas; all being able to cover the
- distLnce in 10 1-10 seconds, this race
h promises to be one of the features of
h the meet.

who won the shot put event in the
:n indoor interscholastic meet, will
I- again try to take first honors in
- his favorite event. Wilson of Ann

the decorations, which will be most-
ly 'floral, will be supplied by the Van-
derbilt Floral Co. There will be a
fountain on the platform, as well as
banks of flowers, and various palms
around the floor. The ceiling will be
decorated with large balloons.
The unusual lighting effects of the
Temple will be augmented by several'
spotlights which will play on the
dancers from various points in
the room. The affair will be strictly
informal, and will start at 9 and last
until 1 o'clock. The price of tickets
is $2 per couple. Those who desire
to purch'ase them are urged to do so
at once, as the number of tickets
still available is very small.

Although trained entirely in Amer-I

Europe has to offer. He is a native
of California.

Banquet Held By
Members Of Band
The passing of another year of
band activities was commemorated at
the twelfth annual banquet of the
Varsity band held last night at the
Union. Prof. Ralph Aigler of the
Law school, commended the band on
its work during the past year, and
spoke of it as one of the centers of
affection of college life. Robert A.

the friendships the band affords.

Danville, Beasley of Harvey, Illinois,
who have cleared the bar at 6 feet.
A fast aggregation of prep track-
men haveentered in the mile run,
which is expected to prove a close
race. Potter of Coldwater, holder of
the state record and one of the best
milers in the West, has covered the
distance in 4:33 minutes. Howrey,
