Editor%; Note: This is the seventh of
a series of feature articles on camp-usi-
i-stitui~ois ntended to develop their his-
tory and major principles or organization
The Triio of Michigamua, oldest
honor society on the Michigan campus
and the only all-campus honor society,
was founded in 1902 for the purpose
of fostering loyalty to the University
and pdomoting good fellowship among
the men chosen to membership. None
but seniors are admitted to member-
ship in the organization, and the ac-
tive tribe limits the numbers taken.
In former years the number of men
admitted to the tribe has been as high
a-: 25, though at the present time there
are 17 active members in the organ-
ization and the number varies gen-
erally between 15 and 20.

Upon the completion of the Union
building the tribe occupied the high-
est room in the tower as its meeting
place or wigwam. The tribe has reg-
ular meetings.
The outward sign of the organiza-
tion is the pin which has the shape of
a golden tomahawk with the name of
the tribe and the year upon it. The
tribe also has a ring of silver with a!
green stone as a .symbol.
The traditional initiation of the
group is held in the spring of each
year, and the tribe is incorporated
under the laws of the State of Michi-
gan. The alumni are organized and
maintain constant contact with the
active organization.
The tribe does not act as a body,
but carries out~ its decisions through
the individual members. Its in-
fluence in this manner, while contin-
ually exerted, is never in the name of

LARGE CROWD SEES MEET
Sauer, Donahoe, Warren Are Victors
While Hewitt, Thomas, Watson
Aind Prescott Lose
History repeated itself last night in
the field hduse when Michigan's second
bid for a Conference wrestling title
fell just three points short of the mark,
and Coach Paul Prehn's well bal-
anced Illinois mat team annexed its
fifth Big Ten championship within the
last six years by handing the Wol-
verines their first reverse of the sea-
son, 12-9.
A crowd of more than 5,000 specta-
tors, the largest to witness a Michigan
team in action on the home mat,
watched the Wolverines in their sec-
ond consecutive attempt to break the
Indians' long string of victories. All
of the bouts were determined by de-
cisions, Illinois gaining four and
Michigan three.
Wrestling in the final match of his
three year career as a Varsity mat-
man, Theron Donahoe defeated Russ
Crane, Illini ,75 pounder, in the fea-
ture bout of the match in overtime
periods. Neither man was able to
gain any time advantage in the reg-
ular 10 minute period, but Donahoe
piled up a margin of 1:47 in the extra
periods by completely riutwrestling
his necier opponent.
Hewitt Loses To Sapora
Joe Sapora, of the Indian team con-
tinued his undefeated record by dis-
posing of Hewitt, Michigan's sopho-
more 115 pound star, in the first match
on the program by a time advantage
of 5:00. A few minutes later Thomas
was forced to accept his first reverse
of the season, when Capt. Pete Hes-
mer, Conference 125 pound champion
was awarded a decision by a margin
of 5:20.
Michigan gained her first points of
the meet in the fourth bout, when
Russ Sauer thoroughly outclassed
Campbell of the invading team to gain
the largest time advantage won by a
Wolverine during the meet. Sauer
went behind his rival after two min-
utes of the bout had elapsed and, al-
though Campbell managed to escape
twice, the Michigan 145 pound star re-I
newed his advantage on each occasion
to gain a decision in 4:16.
Warren Deleats Claypool
The Illinois lead was reduced to
three points, when Bob Warren, com-
peting in the 15 pound class, gained
a decision over Claypool with a time
advantage of 2:08. The Illini mat-,
man M-anaged to hold the edge for
the first half of the bout, but War-
ren gradually tired him out and nar-
rowly missed pinning him several
times near the end of the periodj

welterweight, in the Illinois-Michi-
gan wrestling meet for the 1928 Big
Ten championship.
Last night's victory stamps Sauer
as the leading 145 pounder in Con-
ference mat circles, as Campbell is
credited with victories over all of the
welterweights in the western division
of the Big T'en, while the Wolverine
has beaten all his rivals in the east-
ern section. This victory stamps
Sauer as a favorite to retain the 145

pound title which he

won last year.

IBSENPLAY TO OPE[N
TONIGHT AT WHiTNEY
iRockford Players Will Star Charles
Warburton A nilElkie llerndenm
Kearis In "Hledda Gaber"
IS POWERFUL MELODRAMA
Opening at 8 o'clock tonight in the
Whitney theater, the Rockford players
will enter into the eighth week of
their stock season with the produc-
tion of Henrik Ibsen's famous melo-
drama "Hedda Gabler." Elsie Hern-
don Kearns, featured artist with the
company in their season on the cam-
pus last summer, will appear in the
title role, with Charles Warburton
also starred in the role of Judge
Brack.
Miss Kearns joins the company from
her engagements as leading lady with
Walter Hampden in New York, and is
also well-known in Ann Arbor for her
work as leading lady of the Ben Greet
company which played on the campus
for so many seasons under the aus-
pices of the Summer Session.
Miss Kearns drew unusual praise
for her performance of Hedda Gabler
this summer, and critics agree that
the character itself is one of the most
complex and compelling in dramatic
literature. The entire play is built
around this central figure of a woman
loninated by a single, impelling am-
bition, a desire for personal power,

OLD TRADITIONS
TO BE OBSERVED1
BY JUNIOR PLAY
In keeping 'with former years "For
Tire Love Of Pete," twenty-fourth an-
nual Junior Girls' Play, will observe
its traditional Senior night, Formal
night, and Alumni night. The open-
ing performance of the play on March
19 will be shown to a house of senior
women, attired for the first time in
caps and gowns.
This practice has grown up be-
cause the play was originally per-!
formed in honor of senior women
alone; later it was opened to all wo-
men, and a few years ago was pre-
sented to the general public. The
pe iormance Monday night is pre-
ceded by a banquet for senior women
at the Union, following which the
march is made to the Whitney thea
ter.
Senior night is enlivened by im-
promptu presentations of portions of
last year's play. These selections
from former junior plays are also a
