In welcoming the alumni back5 to
their Alma Mater the present genera-
tion of Michigan men and women feel
a peculiar sense of indebtedness to
those who have preceded them. Grad-
uates who departed from the academic
life of the University some years ago
are not conscious of the value as-
cribed to, them because of the sys-
tems and principles under which they
labored while actively enrolled here.
All of life is one extensive experi-
ment and the imperfections of uni-
versity life which have been correct-
ed, or in some measure remedied, are
a result of the experiments carried
out upon our predecessors. In try-
ing to comprehend the great strides
made by. Michigan in the past few
years, every alumnus should feel just-
ified in eonsidering himself a contri-
butor to its progress. Somehave a
greater right to such consideration
than others, to -be sure, but all at
least served as subjects for the furth-
ering of this great and endless educa-
tional experiment.
Housed in a gem of architecture
erected a a monument to the history
of America, the Clements collection of
Americana is one of the most signif-
icant treasures to which Michigan can
lay claim. One of the ranking collec-
tions of its kind in the country, this
recent acquisition will serve as an
inspiration to the future students o~f
the University, an incentive to delve
deeper inrtq the story of their coun-


The Clements Library, as it is ded-
icated today, may be considered one
of the architectural masterpieces of
the country. 'Standing out as a radi-
ant oriental gem against a field of
cold, uncomely red and grey build-
ings, this classic edifice, so delicate in
its massiveness, so simple in all of its'
detail, is in the fullest sense an ex-
pression of unimpaire'd beauty. -
In calling the new building a li-
brary, one naturally thinks of the
systematized organization of our gen-
eral libraries, but the warm, and in-
formal tone of the exquisite furnish-
ings that have been used in outfitting
the library mark it as distinctly dif-
ferent from the ordinary conceptior
of such a structure. It is a building
filled with a personal tone, a home
for the collection not a library build-

Fifty seven Schools Will Take Part in
Events; Preliminaries
Fourteen Wolverine athletes are to-
day in Chicago awaiting the start of
the National Intercollegiates.
With 57 schools represented by
more than- 300 athletes, some stiff
competition is looked for. Michigan
is expected to put up among the best.
showings at the meet. Many of the
-athletes who appeared here in the
Conference meet are present at the
Chicago meet this week end.
Representation Strong
The Maize and Blue is represented
by Wittman in the 100 yard dash,
Martin in the 440, Reinke and Hat-,
tendorf in the half mile, Isbell in the
two mile, Smith, N'lufer and MacEl-
lven in the high jump, Brooker and
Prosser in the pole vault, Hubbard
in the hurdles and broad jump, Van
Orden and Schmidt in the shot, Brook-
er in the discus throw and Hindes in
the hammer.
Whether Wittman can duplicate the
performance which he gave here Junej
5 when he won over Ayers, of Illinois,
and Tykle, of Purdue; favorites in the
100; is doubtful. However the Wol-1
verine sprinter is determined to show
that his fete was not due to a "good
day," and is set on winning over the
two men tomorrow. Competition
from other schools entering in this
event will make first honors a bit
harder to attain.
Reinke is anxious to stage a come-1
back in the half mile event after his
run here in which he placed fourth,
and in-which Illinois copped both
first and second, barely beating out
Krough, of Chicago, who lead the
field most'of the way.
Hubbard, who has been smashing
records right and left in the broad
jump, is expected to c'ome through
with some spectacular performance at
the Chicago meet. With his leap here
two weeks ago a small inch and a
half behind the worl'd's record, the
colored star is bent on stepping over
the ground and" putting himself in
the athletic hall of fame.
Hubbard Anxious
In the hurdles also Hubbard will
have a chance to prove his worth.
The star, who lost his opportunity of
winning the event here, is anxious
to clear the timbers ahead of John-
son of Illinois when the finals are
run tomorrow.

Attention has heels called to
the change in time for gr'adua-
tion events Monday iorning. All
events scheduled as part of the
graduation exercises have been
moved ahead one hour.
The Comznencnent proces-
sion will form at 7:45 o'clock
Monday mornhig, the classes as-
sembling at their indicated sta-
tions. The march to Ferry field
will start promptly at 8 o'clock,
and the Conunen cement exer-
eises proper will begin at 9 o'-
Members of special bodies, such
as honor guard or color bearers,
must report promptly or loose
their places, those in charge of
arrangements aver.



Tickets for the Michigan-Wash-
ington baseball game are now on
sale at the ofrc.a of the Athletic
assocation inthe Press building
on Maynard street. All seats
sell for $1.00 but only those in
the covered grand stand are re-
served. The ticket office at the
Athletic association will remain
open until noon today and to-
morrow, but seats far both
games may be purchased today.
After 2 o'clock tickets may be
secured at Ferry field. Today's
game starts at 3 o'clock (East-
ern stankAr rtime) ead tomor-
row's at 4 o'clock.



Pr test of the recent Conference
track and field meet ruling which al-
lowed Michigan to win half a point
over Illinois was denied Wednesday
by the graduate managing commit-
tee of the Western Conference.
The dispute arose when Referee
Dean called for a re-run of the hurdle
event because some of the timbers
had been misplaced. Competitors
from other schools refused to run and
Referee Dean called the event off.
Coach Gill, of Illini, who held his
men from other events and lost pos-
sible points which might have given
him the meet, protested the ruling.
The committee Wednesday showed
themselves thoroughly back .of Ref-
eree Dean and his decision and re-
fused to consider the protest which
had been entered by Coach Gill.
That the amplifiers at Ferry field
would give complete satisfaction in
the coning exercises was attested to
yesterday following a trial of the ap-

stalled, cause the human voice to be

in charge of the arrangements expect,
no difficulty from persons who are at
the edge of the crowd not being able
to hear.
Tests to "move" the organ in Hill
auditorium to the field by radio werek
less successful. Echos created in the
auditorium make the project bad and
the idea of having the organ at Fer-
ry field has been abandoned.

tion in W.G.B.

Van Orden is expected to have to
go over the 43 feet 8 3-4 inches which
he did here, in order to cop off first
honors. With more entries in the
event, miany of which .are showing
good form, the heavy Wolverine will
have to toss the shot in good style
to place first.
Isbell is expected to take off the
two mile ┬░run. The wiry little dis-
tance man, as yet never pushed in a'
race, is expected to have to step in
the meet at Chicago. Accustomed to
win all of his races handily and sav-
ing a great amount of reserve, there
is no telling what the man will do
if he is given a stiff trial..
Brooker Has Good Chance
Brooker and Prosser are looked to
for plaegs in the pole vault, with a
good possibility of Brooker landing a
,first. Although he will again be up
against Brownell, star Illinois vault-
er who two weeks ago smashed all
American records with a leap of 13
feet 2 inches, Brooker has a good
chance of defeating the Sucker vault-
er. Brooker, who is one of the most
consistent of vaulters, was but a trifle
behind the Orange and Blue athlete
here, and if Brownell, who previously
had only cleared the bar at 12 feet
10 inches, goes back to that mark,
Brooker will undoubtedly take off
first honors.
In the hammer Hindes stands ev-
