battles ever staged on Ferry field yes-

'30D, was seriously injured when the
automobile in which they were going
to Flint struck a telephone pole near
Clyde, early yesterday morning.
The two students were on their way
to Flint to visit Ryan's wife and
three-month old child when the acci-
dent occurred. The two layattthe

the accident until they were found.
Haase was brought into the Hospital
about 6 o'clock in the morning with
a fractured skull, broken ribs, and a
possible fracture in the left arm. At
a late hour last night, he had not yet
regained consciousness since he was
brought into the hospital here, and
little hope was held for his recovery.

elective system to an appointive one
whereby selection would be made by
the board of directors, created by an
amendment earlier in the year, on a
basis of ability and work done rather
than on a biasis of personal or polit-
ical popularity.
Its adopition would have meant that
the two major Union officers now se-
lected by popular vote at the annual
all-ciampus elections held each spring
would have been miade appointive
while the six vice-presidents of the
Union would shave continued toabe
elected as previously, one from each
school and college of the University,
during the spring elections.
Balloting Favred Change
The balloting, which it is under-
stood was heavily in favor of the pro-
posed change, was challenged short-
ly after the closing of the polls by a
number of students and as a result
the outcome of the election was not
officially announced but was held over
until the meeting of the directors held
yesterday. At that time, the results of,
the vote were presented to the group.
17 in all, with protests from a number
cif students. After considering the
evidence submitted to them, the boardi
held the balloting to have been illeg-
all and ruled that the amendment
should be submitted t? the student
body next fall following the beginning
of the new school year.
The board of directors as it is now
composed includes the president, the
recording secretary, and the six vice-
presidents of the Union, all of whom
are students. Three members of thet
faculty, two alumni, the dean of stu-
dents, the fifnancial secretary of the
Alumni association, and one nrember
of the Board of Regents of the Uni-
versity ccmplte the group.
Propose (hanged functions (
Under the amendment as it will be
submitted to the male membership oft
the University next fall, the board of
directors is expected to function much
as the present Board in Control of1
Publications after which it is modeled.
The publications board appoints the
business managers and managing edi
tors of the various publications aftc
considering the recommendations and
records of the candidates as supplied
by the retiring editors and business
In a similar way, though not incorp-
orated in the amendment text, it is
expected that if the new system is
adopted, t'b!e president and recording
secretary would submit detailedl
recommendations giving in ful the
record and ability of each applicant
for one or the other of the positions.
In: support of this scheme, it was
argued that it would take the offices
out of politics and make it possible forj
men who lacked either personal pop-
ularity or the strong political and fra-
ternity backing necessary for success
in the all-campus elections, to enter
competition (for Union offices with an I
opportunity of reaching the top offices.
Board Was Revised
It is also argued that under the new
plan the six vice-presidents would be
given a more important part in Union
activities and as a result would be-
come better acquainted with the var-
ions men working the different Union
departments so that in sitting as mem-
bers of the board of directors, it
would be possible for them to have a
personal kowledge and estimate of
each man applying. Thus would be
assured the board of additional know-
ledge and breadth of judgment in mak-
ing its selections.

be concluded this week for all those
who have been rehearsing for the last.

Walper '29, general chairman. A great
wealth of material has been uncover-
ed during the practice period, those
who have watched the practices have
A number of books have already
been submitted for consideration and
the committee in charge is at work
reading the suggested plays. Donal
Hamilton Haines of the .iournalism
department has had numerous con-
ferences with those who have written
the books, at which time everyone was
instructed as to the aims of this
year's opera which will attempt to
be entirely new and different from
anything in the past, if the plans of
those who are in charge succeed. -
All those who would like to write
music for the production are asked
to present their suggestions to the
committee on music tomorrow night
at eight o'clock in room 308 of the
Union. They should either be able to
play the music or, have someone with
them who can play the selections. In
addition men trying out for solo parts
should report to the same place at
'even o'clock tomorrow night so that
they may sing for the committee.
Appointment of Pierce Rosenberg
'30 to the position of chairman of the
publicity committee for the 1928 Opera
was made last night by Walper. Ros-
enberg will have charge of all public-
ity for the show including Ann Arbor
publicity and promotion work for all
the cities on the itinerary. In addi-
tion, Charles S. Monroe '30 was ap-
pointed assistant chairman of the
committee and will help in the pub-
licity campaign. Other committee
chairmanships have not yet been de-
cided but will be announced early In
the fall as soon as they are chosen
by Walper.
The choruses have been training
faithfully under the direction of Roy
Moyer who has devised the routines
for six previous Operas. Many unus-
ual routines have been practiced by
the chorus men, a number of whom
have been dailcing for the first time
in ladies' high-heeled shoes.

Martin of Purdue showed himself a

ahead of Stine, the only one of Gill's
five nominees to place. He ran the dis-

after a slight rain in the morning.
Monroe, Michigan's hope never was
able to iget up in the running until the

into an eighth at the tape.
Another great performance was
chalked up in the second event when
Rut Walter passed Baird of Iowa, de-
fending champion, in the last 150
yards of the quarter mile to win
easily in :48.4. Gist of Chicago sprang,
