University Collection Contains Burial
Urns, Water Pipes, and
Wash Bowls.
Now is the time when the candi-
dates for office look about them and
try to remember the good things in
their lives. The old saying is that
history repeats itself for down in the
dusky basement of Alumni Memorial
Hall there are advertisements of the
various candidates for offices made out
by dark-skinned gentlemen in ancient
Rome. These interesting memorials
are in the form of inscriptions written
in red letters on marble slabs that line
the basement of Memorial Hall. They
were collected by Walter Dennison
and brought over to this country by
him after the death of an old Italian
priest who had spent his lifetime in
collecting them..
But these interesting things are only
a emall portion of the wonderful things
that are stored away in the recesses
of Memorial Mall. There is a collec-
tion of ancient Roman and Etruscan
burial urns that are the finest in the
country. This collection is kept in
Professor F. W. Kelsey's office and
contains urns that date back to the
time of Christ's crucifixion. There are
urns shaped like a house, weighing
one hundred and fifty pounds, that
kept the ashes of the ancient Romans
intact. One of the urns that is shaped
like a large water jar contains the
charred bones of a boy or girl four-
teen years old. The bones were
analyzed by Dr. G. L. Streeter, former
professor of anatomy at the Univer-
Perhaps the most interesting of the
urns from a purely artistic standpoint
is the Etruscan sarcophagus represent-
ing the combat between Eeteocles and
Polynices. The urn is gray in color
and the helmet and trappings of
Eteocles are red. The shield of Poly-
nices is painted blue.
Other interesting relices are the
specimens of water pipes found in the
streets of ancient Rome and used to

nents. He has been kicking the ball,
around Ferry Field this summer in an
effort to get into condition early.
Weske was the real find of the 1915
gridiron season. Knowing little of the
rudiments of the game, he won a place
on the line through sheer pluck and
fighting spirit, and his ability to keep
at 'em should win him a regular posi-
tion this year. Weske has been work-
ing in Detroit this summer, and while
he is slightly- under weight to do his
best work, says that he is fit physically
to give Yost all that he has.
Whalen played a good consistent
game at end and will be a strong can-
didate for this -position. "Jimmy"
plays a high order of defensive game.
In addition to the ,above wearers
of the Varsity "M," the following can-
didates who won the "AMA" last year
have been invited: .
"Phil" Raymond, full back; W .
Sharpe, half back; Hoyne-Howe, cen-
ter; Alan W. Boyd, guard; Harold M.
Zeiger, quarter hack.
N. J. Brazell, N. S. Thompson, E. A.

There are several promising men of
the All-Fresh team who may fill the

positions. Sparks and Hanish are two
god-looking possibilities for the back-
field Sparks directed the play of the
yearlings and showed great skill in
all departments of the game. He will
be a formidable candidate for the pivot-
p>osition. Hanish was chosen All-
State halfback during his prep days
with Union High of Grand Rapids, and
piayed a splendid defensive game with
the Freshmen last year. He seemed

Naio will cause attention in the scram-

and McLachlan, last year's freshman
tackles, should round into good shape
before the end of the coming season.

The past year saw several particu-
larly brilliant star performers on the
various class teams, and these men
have not been overlooked by the ath-
letic authorities when extending in-
,itations for early training practice.

Coach Lundrgren's star will give up
baeball for football. Wood, Bathrick,
Joe Robins, Ibaseball pitcher; McCal-
lim, Watts, Willard, Corgin, Shelton
Jones and Goodsell constitute the bal-
ance of the men to receive invitations.
Watts is a big fellow who plays a back
field position. In the class games
he showed himself to be a fearless
player, and his scrapping ability may
give him a berth. Corbin was a regu-
lar performer on the track team, his
best event being the hurdles. "Cec"
appeared for spring football practice
and his showing so pleased the coaches
that they have decided to include him
with the squad. Goodsell has the asize
to develop into a whirlwind player.
He stands over six feet two inches,
weighs 212 pounds stripped and has
speed enough to use his weight to good
advantage. He gained his knowledge
of football on Saginaw high school
teams, but was unable to turn out for
the freshmen last fall. Jones was ad-
judged by Dr. May to be the most
nearly physically perfect freshman
enrolled in the 1919 class.

ent of buildings and grounds at the
