With only six men left in the third
elimination contest to be played at

winners of today's games. Immedi-
ately after the semifinals the finals
will be played and will be refereed by
some of the tennis authorities in the
faculty.
First Doubles to Be Played Tuesday
The first round of the elimination
contest in the doubles will undoubt-
edly be played at 4 o'clock Tuesday
afternoon in order to have the tennis
tournament completed next week since
many of the players do not wish to

necessity of crowding the schedule
may hard press some of the players
who have to play two contests in one
afternoon, but such conflicts will be
avoided wherever possible,l

tennis doubles is urged to hand in his
name to The Wolverine office or phone

Will Act as Official Representative at
the American University
Union Abroad
Prof. Charles Bruce Vibbert of the
philosophy department was appointed
yesterday afternoon to represent Mich-
igan at the American.University Union
in Europe. Professor Vibbert will
leave for Paris as soon as a passport
is secured from Washington.
Michigan's representative will look
after the needs of University students
who are now in the trenches. A com-
plete record of all former students,
undergraduates and men who have
been connected with the University
will be kept by the department at
Paris.
The general object of the Union is
to meet the needs of American uni-
versity and college men who are in
Europe for military or other service in
the cause of the allies. When the men
are off duty the organization plans to
entertain, supply their wants or help
in whatever manner they can.
Similar to Y. M. C. A. Work
Work along the lines adopted by the
Y. M. C. A. throughout Europe will be
conducted by the American Union.
Reading material, tobacco, small lux-
uries and caring for the wounded and
sick are the main tasks.
In case a brother, sister, father or
mother is unable to locate a member
of the family serving in the trenches
after corresponding with the various
military branches, the Union will at-
tempt to notify the persons in doubt
the true situation.
Large Universities Represented
Practically every large university in
the country will be represented in the
Union. After the war the Union plans
to make the present institution a per-
manent one. A student who has at-
tended one of the universities in the
Union is welcomed to remain at the
headquarters during the period he re-
mains in Europe.

The first 516 men, of which the
greater proportion of this district's
quota will be selected, have already
been examined, and the extra 200

He Hears Better
Than He Thinks
So Concludes Examining Physician
When He Squelches Exemp-
tion Plot
We won't mention any names in this,
as it might not be exactly right. But,
at any rate, a man was taking his
physical examination for the selective
draft, and he was trying his best to
get exempted. His plea was bad hear-
ing.
So the examining physician told him
to put his hand over his right ear. The
"doc" then spoke in his normal tone
of voice and asked the subject if he
could hear him. After an affirmative
answer, the "doc" lowered his voice to
a whisper and said, "This is Ann Ar-
bor, isn't it?" There was no reply.
Raising his voice a little higher, he
said, still in subdued tones, "Do you
want a glass of beer?" and still,
strange as it may seem, there was no
answer.
For some reason or other the doctor
thought that the man was trying to
put something over, so quickly he
said, in a whisper, "Put your hand
over your left ear." Instantaneously
the man obeyed.
"You'll do," said the doc.
And he did..
