:Tolan of Michigan and Simpson
of Ohio State set the pace in the
60 yard dash, each man winning
hisbheat in 6.3 seconds, just one tenth
of a second above the Conference
record, which is held by Simpson.
Campbell of Mlchigan also won his
heat in this event, nosing out Hass
of Minnesota in 6.4 seconds.
Sentman of Illinois was one of
the few men to equal a Conference

turning the trick to win his heat
in the 70 yard high hurdles. Potter
was the only Michigan man to
qualify in this event. He took a
third in the slowest heat.
Seymour Nosed Out.

Seymour lost out in a heart-break-

mour failed by inches to qualify.
His brother, Dalton Seymour, was
eliminated in the sixth heat of the
pieliminaries, in which third place
was the best he could take.

was the failure of the highly tout-

Final Sales Drive
Yearbook to be Placed on Last

Starting its final campus sales
campaign of the year, originally
scheduled for this week, the Mich-

various points on the campus on
March 12, 13, and 14 for the bene-
fit of those students who have not
yet bought copies. On March 14
the price of the yearbook will be
raised from $5.00 to $5.50.
There are still more than 300
persons who hold receipts which
entitle them to a reduction of $1
on the present price of the 'Ensian.
These receipts should be paid up
before March 14, as they will be
void after that date.

are engaged in the usual monthly
survey of business and unemploy-

obtained from the measures which

'O .NG PRISON TERMI
Attorney-General at Washington
Approves of Parole for Old
Doctor 4 nd Adventurer.
(By Associated Press)
LEAVENWORTH, Kan.; Mar. 7.-
Dr. Frederick A. Cook, whose varie-
gated career df physician, explorer,
author, lecturer, and oil promoter,
was interrupted by a fourteen-year
sentence to Leavenworth Federal
prison is prepared to face the
world again at the age of 65.
A recommended parole was ap-
proved today by the Attorney gen-
eral at Washington. As soon as it
is received here, probably late to-
morrow or Sunday, the man who
won instant fame and later con-
demnation by his announced dis-
covery of the North Pole in 1908,
will be released.
Convicted of using the mails to
defraud in connection with an oil
promotion scheme at Fort Worth,
Teias, Dr. Cook has served nearly
five years of his sentence. He also
served 14 months in jail while
waiting for a decision on appeal.
In the early part of his term,
Dr. Cook assisted in the prison
hospital where his medical knowl-'
edge supplemented that of the reg-
ular prison physician. Later he
organized a night school. Releas-
ed prisoners have told of the scope
of his work and of the good influ-
ence exerted over his associates.
Two months ago, when a parole
board recommended that he bye re-
leased he said he never had been
accused of violating a prison rule.
His present mood probably is re-
flected by an editorial which he
wrote for the March issue of the
"New Era," a prison publication, of
which he has been editor.
"A very good example to prove
the warden's contention that dili-
gence and respectful individual at-
tentionA will go far, to improve pris-
on morals," the editorial stated, "is
the response of good cheer which
now prevails as a reaction to con-
sideration of the last parole board."

Prof. Earl V. Moore, director of
the School of Music, is in charge

Boy to Make Mid-West Debut
Engagement of Ruggiero Ricci,
the San Francisco wonder child of
nine years, involved elaborate ne-
gotiations with parents, teachers,
and even the state department of
labor and industry. The coming of
this prodigy, rich in technical en-
dowment attested faithfully to by
honest critics at his Orchestra Hall
debut, tossing off the pyrotechnics
of the Paganini Concerto side by
side with the lovely animation of
Mozart's A major concerto in one

Moore Will Discuss
European Bell Music
Prof. Earl V. Moore of the School
of Music will speak on "Bell Music
in England and the Low Coun-
tries of Europe" Sunday, parch 9,
at 6:00 p. n'm., in Wesley Iall.
According to Dr. Moore this lec-
ture will be of particular interest
to the student of the University
and to the alumni who plan to build
a carillon on the campus in memory
of the late President Marion LeRoy
Burton. He will point out the part
played by the bell in the culture
of England, France, Belgium, and
Holland. He also stated that the
student should be proud of the
above proposal as there are very
few carillons located in America.
