Prof. T. C. Trueblood's Students to
Give "The School for Scan-
dal" Tonight.
Tonight Professor Trueblood's
class in Shakespearean readings will
give a platform recital of Sheridan's
delightful comedy, "The School for
Scandal," in the auditorium of Univer-
sity hall at 8 o'clock. This is the sec-
ond of the recitals given by the class
and the attendance has been unusually
good, from 600 to 1500 people being
present at the last one. The recital
will begin strictly on time and those
who are not in their seats at 8 will
be obliged to miss the first part of the
The class has made a study of four
plays during the summer- session,
"Othello," "Twelfthnight," "Macbeth"
and Sheridan's "School for Scandal."
A critical reading and study of each
play is made in preparation for a pub-
lir recital. The cast is changed dur-
ing the performance, thereby enabling
all the members of the class an equal
opportunity in the readings.
The recital of "The School for Scan-
dal" will be a strictly platform re-
cital, the members of the class giving
their parts in citizen's clothes.

task for the victor.

der J. Dominguez, lost only 12.

sanded by Colonel Carlos Carranza,
a nephew of the first chief.

the foundation work as they cannot
ge any steel. There is a shortage in
the steel market now, due to the
heavy demand both abroad and at
home. This shortage will hold up
work as soon as the excavating is fin-
islied unless a small supply can be
gotten in by express.
If the work progresses at the ex-
pected rate the new stacks ought to
be finished sometime in January. Then
the present quarters will have to be
vacated and use the new space. After
this is done it is intended to start
work on the building proper. This
will probably start in the early spring.
Princeton Alumni Contribute for Me-
morial in Honor of Football Star.
Princeton, N. J., Aug. 22.-When the
tens of thousands of American foot-
ball enthusiasts who annually visit
Princeton step from their trains this
fall they will pause for a moment to
pay tribute to a fallen hero. No foot-
ball crowd has ever before paid such
tribute and doubtless none will again.
For Johnny Poe, class president,
"good fellow," and Princeton's great-
est football star is dead on the field
of honor "somewhere in France," and
all Princeton is honoring his mem-
Shortly after Poe's death, while
fighting with the "Black Watch" in
France last September, Princeton
alumni joined together to contribute
to a memorial and, with the class of
1.51 leading, several thousand dollars
was raised. Now a large plot of
ground has been set aside south of
the university campus for an athletic
field for class contests, to be known as
"Poe Field." It has been proposed to
erect some kind of formal memorial
on the field, but plans for this have
not yet been completed.
Poets to Lecture Here Next Year
Although plans for next year's lec-
ture course are not yet completed the
Oratorical association has made plans
so have Rabindrinath Tagore, Seamas
MacManus, and Richard LeGalliene
come here during next year.

A letter was received at The Wol-
verine from William Heston, '04, this
morning. Heston probably is the most
famous of all ex-football stars, and
holds an immortal place on Yost's all-
time Michigan eleven.
The letter follows:
We desire eo call your attention to
the candidacy of William M. Heston
for the Republican nomination for the
otfice of Police Judge in the City of
"Mr. Heston's name will be voted
upon at the Primaries held August
29th, 1916. His experience in the
Prosecuting Attorney's office covering
a period of several years renders him
pecularily well qualified to discharge
the duties of the office to which he
aspires. As you well know, he has
rendered splendid service and his qual-
ifications that we take pleasure in ask-
ing the men of the University of
Michigan to show their appreciation
of this man in helping on this occa-
sion. May we be assured of your ac-
tive co-operation?

"Eddie" Caroll, '17, captain-elect of
the Varsity track team, spent the
month of July digging in coal mines,
at Leads, South Dakota, and has been
engaged in playing the part of a
sailor for the Edison Moving Picture
company in New York City during the
past few weeks.
Carroll and Captain "Hal" Smith
were the only two members of the
Maize and Blue delegation to score at
the eastern intercollegiates during this
spring. Carroll is one of the likeliest
milers in the west. He was staying
when heard from this week, at the
New York Athletic club, and keeping
himself in good condition.

Botany and Zoology Changed From
Two Hours to Four Hour
In the annual announcement of the
colleges of literature, science, and the
arts for '16-17, three new courses in
geography are offered. One of these
is given the first semester and two
are given the second semester. A
change has been made in the depart-
ment of biology that is especially in-
teresting to literary students intending
to go into medicine. The former course,
in biology in which the student took
botany and zoology at the same time
receiving two hours credit for each
course has been changea to a system
where either botany or zoology is
taken alone the first semester and the
subject not taken in the first followed
in the second. Four hours credit for
each course will be given each sem-
The new geography courses offered
are numbers 32, 33, and 34. The title
of 32 is geographic influences on Am-
erican history. This will treat on the
influence at the crises in our history
of geography and the conduct of the
wars due to this feature. Course 33
is "Geography of North America." A
systematic study of the United States,
Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and the West
Indes in regard to the relationship of
geography to the industrial and com-
miercial systems in each country.
Number 34 is a field course in region-
al geography.
The Oratorical association an-
nounces that the following debates will
be held during the next school year:
Illinois, Wisconsin, Northwestern and
Chicago. The debate with Chicago will
be held here the evening of the third
Friday in January, and the debate
with Illinois will be held here on the
last Friday of March. The evening of
the Chicago debate Michigan will be
debating Wisconsin at Madison, and
at the time of the Illinois debate a
contest will be held between Michigan
and Northwestern at Evanston.
