Prof. Philip E. Bursley Chairman
For Third Annual Yearling
Orientation Period
Plans for the University's third
annual freshman week were an-
nounced yesterday by Professor
Philip E. Bursley, of the depart-
ment of Romance languages and
chairman of the freshman week
committee. The entire program for
the week, when 1l1 groups of men
and women freshmen wil be intro-'
duced to the University campus,
has been completed, he reported.
The same events which took!
place last year will be included, but
will be covered in a shorter period.'
The activities commence at 8:00
o'clock Tuesday, September 24, and
finish at noon Saturday, September
28. This arrangement leaves one
evening and Sunday free to the
freshman, allowing for the double
header football game on Saturday
Many New Features
This year the freshmen will be
permitted to classify and pay their
dues before taking the medical ex-
amination, which will eliminate a
good deal of wasted time from the:
program. The pre-professional con-
ferences will be held before classi-
fication instead of after, as in last
year's program. A new feature will
be an address by Wilfred B. Shaw,
general secretary of the Alumni as-
sociation, on "The History of the
As last year, the advisors will pick
their assistants from the students
of the junior and senior classes.
Program Outlined
Tuesday: Classification and med-
ical exams begin. Pre-professional
conferences. Addresses in the eve-
ning by dean of men, one of wo-
men's advisors, and the acting
president of the University.
Wednesday: Classification and
medical exams continue. Lawn
party at Dean Bursley's. Athletic
Thursday: Rhetoric examination,
lawn party and athletic events. Ad-
dresses in the evening by Dean
Humphrey and Wilfred B. Shaw.I
Friday: Mathematics examina-
tion activities at field houses, R. O.
T. C. inspection. Mixers at the
Union for men, Women's League
Building for women.
Saturday: Scholastic aptitude
test. Double header football game.

Coach Vogel's revenge bent Iowa
nine, still smarting under two de-
feats which put the Hawkeyes out
f last year's Big Ten race, will in-
vade the Ferry field diamond to
meet the titleholding Wolverines at
2:30 o'clock this afternoon. Today's
game will be the second encounter
)f the Conference season for both
teams, previous tilts having given
Michigan a.4-1 victory over North-
western, while the Hawks came out
on the short end of 3-1 ten inning
contest with Illinois.
The Iowa team is primed,.to make
up for last year's much protested
Ann Arbor game, in which all of
Coach Vogel's ardent petitioning,
while failing to move 4he adamant
umpires, provided the spectators
with the most excitement of the
entire season. The score, however,
remained 8-7 and coupled with a
-1 beating handed the Hawkeyes
later in the season at Iowa City,
quite effectively removed the Old
Gold and Black, from the path of
the title bound Wolverines.
Five Veterans On Team
Although his charges suffered a
reverse in their first tilt, Coach
Vogel has one of the strongest
combinations in the Big Ten to pit
against Michigan today. With five
veterans in the field and three ex-
perienced pitchers, the Iowa outfit
looms as one of the Varsity's out-
standing competitors for the Con-
ference title.
In all probability, today's game
will see a resumption of the Mc-
Afee-Twogood pitchers' b a t t 1 e,
which resulted in a 6-1 defeat for
the left handed Iowa veteran last
year. Twogood held the Walverines
to eight hits, however, and if he
can conquer his usual wildness
should bother the Maize and Blue
considerably today. Pitching against
Illinois, he limited the strong In-
dian lineup to two hits in the first
nine innings, only to falter in the
tenth and allow three safe blows
for two runs.
Thompson Will Catch
The Hawkeyes. also possess two
good reserve moundsrnen in David,
another portsider, and Brown, two
veterans, either of whom may be
chosen to startragainst the Varsity
this afternoon. The other end of
the battery will be capably taken
care of by Captain Thompson, rated
as one of the best Conference back-
stops for the past two seasons.
Three of the members of the Iowa
infield are also experienced. Sahs
will again hold down the first base
job, while Glassgow, another star
veteran, will take the shortstop as-
signment, with C. Nelson at third
and Stebbins, one of the three new-
comers, at second.
Blackford, the visitor's veteran
leadoff man, will be in right field,
with two more hard hitting sopho-
mores, Mowry and Musgrove, in the
left and center outer gardens re-
Varsity Has Improved Practice
Coach Fisher is almost certain to
pick McAfee, star hurler of last
year's team, to make his first ap-
pearance of the seasoi against a
Conference team today.
The remainder of the Michigan
lineup will remain the same with
the except n of the right field
position, where Slagle may replace
Harvey Straub. The Wolverines
showed improved form in batting
practice yesterday, and with Mc-
Afee, one of the strongest hitters
on the squad, in the lineup, should
show more offensive power than
was displayed against Northwest-
