Summer Session Al-Stars Easily Take FOR NEW UNION NEXT JUNE;
L Me~ asue fCiy nepenadenats


If anyone had any doubts as to the
calibre of the all-campus team they
were certainly dispelled yesterday
morning when the students, with
Wheat in the box, took the measure of
the Ann Arbor Independents in an
easy 6 to 1 victory. The University
All Stars, as they wre listed by the
fans present, started off with a rush in
the first round, and were never headed
during the entire contest.
One of the main featpres of the game
was the stellar work os "Buck" Wheat,
who acted as slab artist for the col-
lege team. The engineer twirler seem-
ed to have all sorts of stuff keeping
the Millman aggregation at his mercy
from the very start, ind garnering a
total of nine strikeos while his op-
ponents gained but 'three bases on
balls and five scattered hits.

The law department, the second
semester of which continues a week
after the other departments have dis-
banded, wil hold its examinations next
week. Secretary E. C. Goddard an-
nonaced the schedule yesterday. The
examinations will be given as follows:

Freshmen and those coming to
Michigan for the first time will be as-
sisted in enrolling and getting located
by the faculty committee of freshmen
advisers and a group of selected sen-
ors. These will meet in University
hall, and give advice and help of a per-
sonal nature, such as does not fall
within the province of the admiais-
trative officials.
Four members of the committee of

week of September 23 from 9:00 to

It is believed that the new system
which replaces that of arbitrarily as-
signing so many first-year men to each
