medic green Tuesday's entertain-'
ent presented by the Michigan Union
et with the unqualified approval of
th ,visitors and hosts. Five thousand
ople were comfortably accommodat-
beneath the mammoth canvas and
e events went off without a hitch.
When the curtain call was sounded
ox" Bogle took the stand and bark-
for the performance. The big lad;
the quaint costume of his Sphinx
n made a ready get-away with that
omparable "Spread eagle" of which
is a past master. The audience
s then confronted with "Blind Bill"
iliams who entertained with a little
itation blown from a mouth organ to
guitar accompaniment. The mem-
rs of the Cosmopolitan club present-r
a curious act which the official pro-j
am book called an "Oriental Me-
ge." A performance in the art of
jitsu by Kanata and Kobayashi
ling in an injury for the latter when
was thrown from the small mat
.t was provided for their turn. The
aibition was followed by some
ight of hand work by Premananda
s in which the clever Hindu kept
audience guessing. McCormick
3 Das, and Toncuchi and Yamada
sented a speedy exhibition or ex-
t fencing and baton fighting.
Freddie" Lawton, '11, was there
h the old delivery of some snappy
tch comedy hits and songs. His
m mate, "Eddie" Howell, '13 E, was
a "distanced second" in piano play-
especialy when, he pulled off his
t, and making a short neck stand,n
,ered the keys while upside down.
'he big laurels of the day went to
boys who put on "Miss Everlast-
," a comedy skit written by Fran-
Riordan and Robert Beck, with lyr-
by Julius Wuerthner and Selden
kinson. With the support of "Fat"'
znett, '11, the comedians did not let
moss grow under their toes. It isI
e to say they would have gottent

CLASS BELONGS TO HEROIC AGE.
With a proclamation couched in the
verbose and presumptuous terms of
the fresh-soph posters of fragrant
momory, the illustrious class of 1902
issued a defi to the classes who grad-
uated 'under less fortunate nu-
merals, to meet them under
Tappan Oak at 2:45 this morn-
ing to give themselves with wan-
ton abandon to a career of vandalism'
and devastation. Whether this quaint
and classic town will be a mass of
smouldering ashes when the sun sets
this afternoon or whether merely bro-
ken fences and brilliantly bedaubed
portals will mark their course, it is yet
too early to forecast.
At an early hour this morning the
members of this notable class were
awaiting the appointed hour in an
upper room, from which they were;
making the night hideous with their
preparations for the battle. Even one
of Ann Arbor's regular cops, not one;
of the "over-night" camups kind, trem-
bled as he heard the thunderous dem-
onstrations on a near-by corner. It is
impossible to say what ends will satis-
fy the indomitable spirit and un-
quenchable ardor of this heroic class.
Earl C. Weightman, Verne Tickner,
and' Ethel A. Heath, graduates of the
actuarial course in insurance, have re-
ceived appointments with Michigan
companies. ' Wightman will be actu-
ary for the Michigan State Life Insur-
ance Company, of Detroit, Tickner,
for the Northern Insurance Company,
of Detroit, and Miss Heath, for the
Lady Maccabees of Port Huron.
by a bacliground of lights, yellow and
blue bunting, and flags, the brilliant
setting of the 1912 senior reception.
After months of preparation during
which the committees, headed by Wil-
liam C. McCormick, had worked the
plans to the last detail, the reception
of the Jubilee year was conceded to be
positively the "best ever."
The guests were welcomed from
8:30 to 9:00 by a "receiving line" in
which stood President and Mrs. Hutch-
ins, Dr. Angell, Regent and Mrs. Beal,
and, with their wives, the deans of
all the departments, Professors R. M.
Wenley, H. C. Adams, and M. P. Til-
ley, Mr. Philip Bartelme, and Mrs. F.P.
Jordan. Different heads of the senior
committees took places in the line to
make introductions. Besides General
Chairman McCormick, the other gen-
eral officers for the reception were,
Jervis Webb, secretary, Hugh S. Gam-
ble, treasurer, and Homer Ramsdell,
Not only seniors but alumni and un-
dergraduates were welcomed at the af-
fair but only 107 couples were among
the dancers. All the visiting dele-
gates were presented with tickets
which admitted either to the gallery or
to the fl rs of the gym. A deficit re-
sulted because of the small1attendance
at the party.
Decorations for the affair were elab-
orate and rivalled the -hop in splen-
dor. Festoons in the varsity's colors
draped the balconies and concealed
the unsightly roof trusses, and from
the ceiling were suspended five drops,
on which were displayed "Old Glory"
and the flags of different colleges.
Michigan state seals were fastened at
both ends of the hall, and along the
sides of the balconies appeared in elec-
tric lights, "1912" and "Michigan." The
flags to be carried in the academic'
parade by the "Guard of Honor" were
also included in the decorating scheme.
Fischer's Kalamazoo orchestra
struck up at nine o'clock, and played
through the entire program of 22
whirls. "Our Diamond Jubilee," a
new tune by Mr. Fischer himself, was
the musicians' headliner. Two"catchy"
compositions, yet unpublished, by stu-
dent composers, were also featured,
"The Jubilee Rag," by Frank Picard
and Andrew Kelyn, and "The Girl of
My Smoke Wreaths," by Picard and
Julius Wuerthner, of "The Awakened
Rameses" fame. Last night was the
first time that the entire improved cui-
sine of Barbour gymnasium has been
at the disposal of any class function
and a plentiful supper was served.
Programs were in the official colors
of the university, the leather a deep
azure, bound by a maize cord. A dif-
ficulty was encountered in having a
sufficient supply. The printed filler
sent by the manufacturing firm at
Philadelphia was incorrect in places,
and as it was too late to have them
correct it, fillers were printed in De-
troit and the cases shipped in there
yesterday to be completed. Persons
who received no programs may give
their names to a memberof the recep-
tion committees and programs will be
Adorned with war paint, barn paint;
and powder, and dressed respectively
in every color of the rainbow, with a'
few extra shades thrown in, eleven
campus societies "pi-raded" around
the campus yesterday afternoon. The
procession formed between the engi-
neering arch and the flag pole and
started along the diagonal walk short-
ly before three o'clock.
One minute was allowed each soci-
ety in which to give some "stunt" be-
fore the reviewing stand on the steps
of Memorial hall. Most of the organi-
zations devoted their alloted time to
singing distinctive- songs and chants,
the members assuming various chars
acteristic poses during the perform-
One of the most striking features et-
the parade was the Sphinx sacred bull,
in the disguise of an ordinary milch
cow with the cognomen "Sadie." The
young lady proved a bit intractable at
times, but fortunately kept her bux-
som self on good behavior at the crit-
ical moment before the reviewing
Fully five thousand people, includ-
ing alumni, students and townspeople,
lined the walks of the campus to view
the parade, the crowd moving toward
the pavilion after the procession had

HIS LIFE EPOCHS COINCIDE
WITH THOSE OF UNIVERSITY
Facts and figures in no other man's
life dove-tail in so neatly with the
Commemoration Week as do those in
the life of James H. Cogshall, '62, for
many years a County School Examin-
er of Muskegon County. Mr. Cogshall,
who returned for the festivities yes-
terday morning, was born in the year
which marks the birth of this state
and this institution, 1837. He gradu-
ated in the quarter century class of
sixty-two, and; to cap the succession
of chronological climaxes, hopes to
celebrate his golden wedding anniver-
sary this fall.
Active and loquacious, this *rar-
time grad recounts many stirring tales
of the times when the men left class
rooms to engage in the struggle of the
LAVANS MAY START AS PITCHER.
With one more game to play and
one more team to face on Ferry field
this season it is not deemed too late
by Coach Rickey to effect a more or
less serious shaking up in the Wolver-
ine lineup for today's contest with
After witnessing the weird termi-
nation of Monday's struggle, the advis-w
ability of this move is very apparent,
and it is hoped to make today's game
a continuation of the interesting con-
test which was being played up to the
sixth inning on that fateful afternoon.
To that end it is very probable that
the Quaker stickers will have to face
Michigan's erstwhile shortstop, La-
vans, at Rickey's request and if he
proves to be as-good in the box as he
has shown himself to be in covering
third the Pennseyites will have their
the territory between second and
troubles. Baribeau will probably be
held as the relief slab artist in this
event and Scully will be put in to take
care of Lavans position at short.
With this change on the scorecards
it is hoped to get revenge on the East-
erners and its sweetness will be
measured, by the size of the score,
with Michigan on the big end and the
sons of Penn begging for mercy.
A victory today, the last one to be
gained on Ferry field diamond by the
team of 1912, would be a fitting termi-
nation of the season, in keeping with
the joyous events of jubilee week and
something that would do more to
warm the hearts of the returned grads
than anything else.
