Baer and Gabel Will Return To Play
Tackle Positions; Thisted and
Truskowski Are Centers.
Eighteen letter men, 10 additional
experienced men from the 1926 squad,
and about thirty first year men make
up the Michigan football crew that
Coach Fielding H. Yost and his asso-
ciates will meet here on September
15, the first day of practice in the
Big Ten. The date is just one month
Ordinarily the coaches have ten
days in which to work with the men
and get them in shape before the be-
ginning of school. The two sessions
a day will continue but three days,'
however, this year, the men report-
ing on September 15 and school work
starting.on September 19. Little more
than organization work will be pos-
sible during the first week end.
One advantage of the advanced cal-
endar, however, will be an earlier ap-
pearance of the freshmen. The first
year men, in fact, due to the organ-
ization of Freshman Week, ar due to
appear in Ann Arbor before the Var-
sity, something that has not happened
before in the history of Michigan
football. If the freshmen appear on
September 12 as planned, it may be
possible for the coaches to get the
squad fairly well organized before the
beginning of work, with the regulars.
Ten Ends Report
In the list of 63 names being con-
sidered by the coaches, Captain Ben-
nie Oosterbaan leads a gr~oup of 10
ends. His associates, of former years
who wear the Michigan "M" are Her-,
man Nyland, jr., Grand Haven, and
Leroy Heston, Detroit. Nyland was a
substitute last year and worked sot
perfectly in the game against Minne-
sota at Minneapolis that he was con-t
sidered to have won himself a regu-
lar place this year. Appearance of
ends from the freshman squad has,
changed that opinion a little. Nyland,c
in the spring work, showed aptitude,
in spearing forward passes, and
whether he makes the regular positiont
opposite the captain or not, he is go-
ing to be a handy man to have aorundc
if he keeps up his last year's game.
Frank Harirgan, Grand Rapids, and
M. H. Boden are the men who wereI
on the squad lat year. The endt
field is so promising that the coaches
are considering switching Harrigan
to a back field candidacy.
Ray Baer and Normal Gabel, lastI
year's regulars, are the letter men
tackles who will return. Gabel, aI
litle below his sophomore form lastt
year, should give a go daccount oft
himself this year. Baer is at homeI
at either guard of tackle, and must ber
considered as the "factor" of the
Michigan line this year.
Other tackles present a year ago
are Pommerening, a local boy, andI
Henry Grinnell, Detroit. Some addi-t
tional material will be developed for
this position, as Coach Yost has nevert
ben found wanting in replacement ofc
his tackle positions. While he is not
likely to have another combination
like Hawkins, Edwards, and Babcock

for many a moon, Michigan's veteran
head can be relied upon to produce
a man or two who is acquainted with
all the tricks of tackle play.
Veteran Guards Back
Palmeroli and Squires are the vet-
erans of the guard positions, each of
them letter winners last year. Both
have speed, one of the requisites of
the Michigan line play system, but
neither can take the place Jack Lov-
ettp established for himself last year.
The men who have been on the squad
before and who will be invited back
are George Nicholson, Kansas City,
and R. J. Williams, Detroit. Neither
were in gams last year, so their abil-
ity under fire is unknown.
Joe Truskowski, of Detroit, and C.
E. Thisted, Great Falls, Mont., are the
men who have had experience passing
the ball from center for Michigan.
Thisted was the understudy to Cap-

NORTHVALLE, Mich., August 13.-
Turf, equal to that on any of the golf
courses of eastern Michigan, and a
surprising variety of holes differen-
tiates the Meadowbrook country club
golfhcourse nearohere from many of
Michigan's Detroit district courses.
The Michigan Open tournament will
be held here Monday and Tuesday,
August 15 and 16, this having been
the course where Al Watrous, Grand
Rapids, won his state open title a year
ago with Davie Robertson, Detroit,
Few of Michigan's courses have the
setting of rolling ground, wooded
area, a brook or two and a lily pond
to give variety and pleasing scenery
to the players: The course rambles
over a large amount of ground, al-
most none of the holes are parallel
and not one has the same problem
of the tee shot and approach. The
rolling terrain has been adroitly used
by a skilful golf architect to make
useful every shot known to the Scot-
tish game.
The course is not especially diffi-
cult and the "ancient and honourable"
would frown at the scarcity of traps,
but natural hazards make the course
as difficult as the average golfer de-
sires to attack. Meadowbrook is one
course where the average golfer
seems to have been considered in-
stead of the par-minus star.
Students Do Well In Presenting Plays
For Which Instructor Had Small
Choice For Cast
By Miriam Mitchell
With the close of Summer session
comes a break in the activities of*
Lionel; Crocker's class in "Presen-
tation of One-Act Plays." The class
this summer has had better success
than those of previous sessions, both
financially and in material gained. The
three performances consisting of three
plays each a distinct achievement, and
the two out of town trips which the
class made were an innovation. Both
Webster and Brighton furnished good
sized and appreciative audiences, and
the Ann Arbor audiences was the
largest that one-act plays have ever
It must be remembered in a course
of this kind, necessarily experimental
in nature, that the students choose
the instructor rather than the in-
sturctor choosing the students. So
the instructor who has to fill the
role of director has the double prob-
lem of breaking in amateurs and se-
lecting plays in whicl the actors
he has access to will fit. Considering
these difficulties it will be admitted
that Lionel Crocker has donea real
bit of work in his direction this sum-
Students Do Well
As for the students themselves, they
did remarkably well, vying with Miss
LaNola Fox, the only professional in
the group. Miss Fox's personality,
naturalness and ability make her a
real addition to the personnel of the
class, and she brought to the parts
Cinderelle and Miss Ivory a sponta-
neity that was refreshing and enter-
taining. Dan Huff made a name for

himself in both of his roles, and his
ability to extemporize cleverly came
to his aid several times. Miss Made-
line Brumbaugh also gave us a hint of
the professional, and it was diffiicult to
tell whtther she was more fascinating
a a prince Charming or as the Villai-
ness. A notable fact is that every
member made himself heard to the
back of the auditoriums.
No Serious Plays Given
No serious plays were presented,]
unless "Cinderella Married" might
be considered in that category, but
the combination was a pleasing one
and again we must remember that
plays had to be chosen to fit the ac-
tors, not actors to fit the plays.
The class his summer nas set a
precedent which sould be a good ex-
ample to future groups of the same
nature, and dicetor and students alike
dtserve the praise due to those who
have done their work well.

Maler and Pattison, Detroit Symphony
Flonzaley Quartet and St. Olaf
Lutheran Choir Scheduled
Announcement of the six Choral
Union and five Extra Concert series
engagements for the coming year was
made yesterday by Charles A. Sink,
President of the University Musical
Society. The 49th annual Choral
Union series will open with Beniamino
Gigli October 7, while the ninth an-
nual Extra Concert series will begin
October 28 with Rosa Raisa and Gia-
como Rimini.
Others on the older series are
Maier and Pattison, Leo Luboshutz
and Josef Hoffman, Paul Kochanksi,
the New York Symphony orchestra,
on its forewell tour under Walter
Damrosch, and Feodor Chaliapin. The
second group is completed by the
Flonzaley Quartet, Ossip Gabrilo-
witsch and the Detroit Symphony or-
chestra, the St. Olaf Lutheran Choir,
and Myra Hess.
Gigli Will Appear
The appearance of Gigli has been
arranged after months of negotia-
tions to effect a contract. He is an
outstanding tenor of the Metropolitan
Opera company, and his time is so
completely taken up in opera work
that he seldom appears in concert.
Every spring following the close of
the New York season he has been en-
gaged in operatic singing in Italy and
South America.
Guy Maier and Lee Pattison are to
appear Nov. 10, as the second number.
They have developed .the two piano
field yin a distinctive manner, and are
appearing here previous to an ex-
tended concert tour. Mr. Maier is a
member of the faculty of the School
of Music, but wil have a leave of
absence this year to fill concert en-
Hoffman and Luboshutz to Play
Lea Luboshutz, violinist, who ap-
peared in the May Festival this
spring, and Josef Hoffman, Russian
pianist, will give a joint recital
November 23. Mr. Hoffman has ap-
peared in Ann Arbor on several oc-
casions previously, but not in recent
years. He has a world reputation
of long standing, and Miss Luboshutz
has made a profound impression in
her shorter career.
Paul Kochanski, Polish violiist,
who has made a spectacular entrance
unheralded into New York musical
circles, is scheduled to play on Jan.
18. He was engaged for his first per-
formance in this country as soloist
with the New York Symphony under
Walter Damrosch. His first appear-
ance was such a decided success that
popular demand brought him back for
five additional concerts in five weeks.
Kochanski has played in miany of
the capitals of Europe, with consid-
erable acclaim. He studied in Poland,
and was at an early age a professor
in the Conservatory at Warsaw, later
holding the same position at Petro-

Faculty Members Were Chosen From
Many Departments; Topics Varied
From Poetry to Geology
In the conclusion of the lecture on
"Virgin Islands" delivered Thursday
afternoon in Natural Science audito-
rium by Robert B. Hall of the Geogra-
phy department there ended the Uni-
versity series of special lectures for
the summer of 1927.
In commenting upon this series
Dean Edward H. Kraus, of the Sum-
mer session, stated, "The series of
lectures were of a very high order, and
covered an extremely wide range of
subjects, many very timely national
and international issues. The speak-
ers were all experts and authorities
in the various fields that they repre-
sented. It is to be regretted that a
larger number of students did not at-
tend, for at most of the lectures a
larger number of the citizens of the
city were present than ,there were
students of the University."
Increased Attendance Felt
This fact of the low attendance of
students wah commented upon by sev-
eral in authority. However, a -gene-
ral increase in attendance was felt.
Prof. Thomas E. Rankin, secretary of
the Summer session, stated, "it was
gratifying to note that the audiences
for the lectures were larger than they
have been for some years past. The
quality of the lectures justified this."
Of the 26 lectures scheduled, 18
were delivered by University faculty
members and 8 by those from other
institutions. This latter group con-
tained a member of the Geographicalx
Society of Denmark, professors of
Clermont Ferrand, France, University
of Uterecht, Floating University, Bald-
win Wallace college, the Dean of<
Rollins college, Florida, and the head
of the Salt Administration of China. 1
University Staff Lectures
The members of the University who
lectured were drawn wrom the lawt
school, the lighary staff, and the de-
partment of Zoology, Botany, Socio-
logy, Psychology, Forestry, Minerolo-1
gy,, Geography. Electrical engineering,l
Political Science, History, Rhetoric, I
English, and French.
The subjects varied from material-
istic topics such as "The Erruption of
Mount Etna" to discussions of poetry
and literature, such as "William
Blake and William Wordworth," or
"Popularitw and Permanency in Lite-
However, most important point ofE
all is that according- to rumor, not
lecture started later than five minu-
tes past the appointed time. This, in
it,self, makes this a singular seriesE
of lectures.
Augustus W. Foscue, Jr., who has
been an intsructor in Economics in1
the University, will return to hist
home in Dallas, Texas, next Tuesday.

Notes Increase in Attendance


Students With More Than
One Degree
"Th'e chief Characteristic of the'
summer session student, in thin ses-
sion has been the earnestness with
which he has regarded his work," said
Edward H. Kraus, dean of the Sum-
mer school, in characterizing this
semester's work, in an interview yes-
terday. He further stated that among
the most gratifying things of this ses-
sion, was the fact that there had been
no serious breaches of the regulations
for the government of the student
Bring New Interests
Efforts to. bring new interest into
the life of the summer student, such
as the engaging of the Rockford Play-
ers, and the establishment of the Pub-
lic HeHalth Institute, were, he said,
from all, indications, highly success-
The Public Health Institute is an
innovation in college curriculum; . s
aim is to give, in weekly lectures, he
progress and the methods of the f-
forts to raise the general stani i<ds
o health in America. The attendanctI
which totaled 144, the Dean sail,
showed that there was more thtnt
enough interest shown in this institute
to warrant its continuance.
Graduates Increase
A further evidence of the success
of the summer sessions in general
said the Dean, in conclusion, is the
increasing number of graduate stud-
ents which attend them. The num-
ber of students which have at least
one degree amounts to about forty-
one percent of the entire student
body; 227 of the above have 2 degrees,
thirteen have three, and there are 2
students who can boast of 4 degrees.,
With this issue, the Summer j
Daily suspends publication. The
first issue of The Daily in thej
fall will be published Tuesday
morning, Sept. 20. The initialj
edition of The Michigan Weeklyj
will appear Monday, Sept. 26.

All Entering Students Required To
Be In Ann Arbor Monday
Morning, Sept. 12
"Freshman - Week," the newly or-
ganized period of orientation for "en-
tering students, will be inaugurated
at the University this fall, withhe
cooperation of more that 90 faculty
and 150 upperclassman advisors, ac-
cording to complete plans announced
by Prof. William A. Frayer, director.
All freshmen are obliged to be at
the University Monday morning, Sept.
12, and will be given an intensive
course introduction to University life,
methods, and requirements. A pam-
phlet containing the week's program,
advice for registration, rooms, and
classification as well as the name of
the particular advisor assigned him is
being mailed to each student, more
than 1,000 having been sent out yes-
terday morning. 1,800 are expecte
to register in all colleges and schools
of the University, according to Ira
M. Smith, Registrar.
Little Writes Message
President Clarence Cook Little has
written a message for the inside cov-
er of the leaflet, emphasizing that
"Michigan offers, besides the joy of
companionship and the joy of acquir-
ing knowledge and usefulness, the
responsibility of bearing worthily an
old and honored name."
At 8 o'clock Monday morning, the
first event on the freshman's program
will be a conference with his advis-
er, at which time his schedule for the
week will be definitely arranged, and
any difficulties as to rooms will be
settled through the rooming commit-
tee at the Union.
Every morning and early afternoon
for the first five days will be taken up
with medical examinations and Uni-
versity library inspection trips. At
8 o'clock every morning after 'Mon-
day, tests will be given for Mathe-
matics content, Scholastic aptitude,
English content, and interest ana-
Little And Smith Will Talk
A general assembly in Hill audito-
rium Monday night will be addressed
by President Little and Courtland C.
Smith, '28, President of the Student
Council. In that afternoon, William
Warner Bishop, Librarian will give
an address.
Tuesday night a mixer will be held
for men in the Union and a Women's
League reception in Barbour gymna-
sium and learn Michigan songs. A
second general assembly with ad-
dresses will be held Thursday night,
and on Friday mixers will be held
by groups in the different schools and
colleges. Saturday free movies will

Joseph a Bursley, Dean of Students,
and Mrs. Bursley, will entertain the
freshmen at lawn parties' in two
groups Wednesday and Thursday af-
ternoons. Athletic events will be

Will Hold Conference
Friday -afternoon professional con-
ferences will be held with prominent
faculty members and representatives
from outside the University in law,
medicine, engineering, and other
fields, where students who have al-
ready chosen their vocations can dis-

cuss the requirements and advisabi-
lity of entering those professions. This
will have the dual advantage of show-
ing the students what they must do
to complete specific courses, and
making sure that they have chosen
the line of work for which they are
best qualified, according to Professor
Professor Frayer states that the
program is expected to show the
freshmen the possibilities of using
I their time to advantage, as well as
