Canoe races between freshmen
and sophomore crews will be inno-
vated at the traditional underclass
spring games, May 2 and 3, ac-
cording to plans being considered
for the event by the Student coun-
cil, the sponsors of the affair. Two
races, with each class represented
by crews of two men, have been
incorporated into the tentative ar-
rangements in addition to the other
customary events, with the aim of
developing a more complete water
sports program on the first day of
the underclass competition.
The races would start at the
bridge west of the site of the regu-
lar events, continue upstream. for
about 100 yards, and then return,
to the scene of the tugs-of-war.
The other events for the afternoon
would be the two tugs-of-war be-
tween the picked teams of 50 men
representing each class, and a third
between the entire classes.
Preliminary plans for Swing-Out,
the event inaugurating the series of
senior activities, were also made by
the council last night. George C.

national fame, will speak at 8

Mr. Taft is one of the great
sculptors of the day and is also
known as an author. He is an
artist and a delightful lecturer and
is said to captivate his audiences
whether or not they know anything
of art. Modest of his work as a
teacher and lecturer, nevertheless
it is true that he has done more
to inspire a knowledge of art and
love of the beautiful in sculpture
and painting than any man of his
age in America.
Famous for Sculpture,
Among Mr. Taft's best known
professional works are "The Soli-
tude of the Soul," at the Art Insti-
tute of Chicago; "The Fountain of
the Great Lakes," Grant Park, Chi-
cago; the Washington Monument
at Seattle, Wash.; "Black Hawk"
and Ogle County Soldier's Memo-
rial at Oregon, Ill.; "Lincoln," at
Urbana; and "Alma Mater," dedi-
cated at Urbana last June.
After graduating from the Uni-
versity of Illinois in 1880, Mr. Taft
studied for some time in Paris and
returned to take a position as in-
structor and lecturer'in' modeling
at the Art Institute of Chicago,
which position he has held for the
past 35 years. He holds the title
of Professional Lecturer in the
History of Art at the University of
Illinois, as well as many others
conferred upon him by universities
and art societies throughout the
Member of Many Societies.
Mr. Taft is a member of the Na-
tional Academy of Design; the
American Academy of Arts and
Letters; American Institute of
Architects; and the National Com-
mission of Fine Arts. He won a gold
medal at the St. Louis exposition
and possesses many other trophies
won at national and international
This will be Mr. Taft's second ap-
pearance in Ann Arbor under the
auspices of the Oratorical associ-
ation. Tonight's lecture which will
be fully illustrated with slides, is
considered to be the best of Mr.
Taft's entire repertoire of talks on
art subjects, and promises to be an
unusually interesting and educa-
tional talk. Tickets are on sale -at
Slater's or at 3211 Angell hall to-
day and will be available at the

Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, directgr
of the University Health .Service,
spoke yesterday evening before the
April session of the Forestry Club,
discussing "First Aid to Men in the
Field." After discrediting several
"superstitions" regarding first aid,
such as "bucketing a person who
has fainted with cold water," Dr.
Forsythe outlined fundamental
steps to be taken in case of shock,
fainting, and other emergencies
possible in the outdoors.
In regard to the efficacy of var-
ious antiseptics, Dr. Forsythe de-
clared that "the vogue of mercuro-
chrome as an antiseptic is passing
away in medical circles, due to the
fact that its color often olscures
inflammation. The older favorite,
iodine, is once more in favor as a
first aid appliance." The lecture
concluded with a summary of med-
ical articles needed for assembling
a model first aid kit.
