act as guides or chauffeurs.

Alumnae council recently announced

$7000. The goal is $10,000, and it
is hoped that contributions received
before June will enable the council
to present this sum to the University
during the June celebration as a per-
nanent memorial.

First Tennis Team
The "Northwestern Intercollegiate
Tennis Meet" went to the first Mich-
igan net team in history in 1894, but
success has been mediocre in recent
years. Hockey has been a Varsity
sport since 1( 21 with a good share of
Western Conference titles annexed.
Cross country dates back to 1919
when Michigan first ran in the Con-
ference meet, but the sport was drop-
ped in 1934. Fencing, organized in
1;27, fell out in 1933.
Basketball found a team at Michi-l
1(gan in 1909, but then it lapsed a'0;)in1
until the War and has been one o[
the most popular sports on campus
since. Wrestling joined the list in
1929 with a Conference winner.
