Brother Hopes Fraternity Will Not

Train
My Dear Brother:
In view of my very kindly and per-
sonal interest in the fraternity's pro-
gress and well-fare, I am taking this
opportunity to contribute to the ulti-
mate perpetuation of a greater chap-
ter, by proposing for membership a
youth whose spiritual and moral be-
ing' signalizes to me the incorpora-
tion of such virtues and inherent ten-
dencies as might conspire to assist in
effecting a harmonious and pleasing
realization of this ,coveted end.,
o tspeakwithout direction or cir-
cumlocution, I wish specifically to
recommen~d young Aloysius Ferdinand
Houseman-Dietersoll of New York
City, (N. .). Young Aloysius comes
from one of the finest families in
America and his social standing is
such as to place it above the planetof
discussion. In fact, I believe the
Houseman-Dietersolls have evidence
of their direct descendency from
Christopher Columbus and Queen Isa-
bella.Dunn and Bradstreeterate his
father, Franlistes George Houseman-
Dietersoll as fourth in their list of
"The World's Richest Mqu." In fact,
it has been rumored in Wallstreet
financial circles, that the Houseman-
Dietersoll estate has volunteered to
subscribe the entsire three billion dol-
lars which will constitute the second
liberty loan. Young Aloysius's fath-
er is president of the 12 largest banks
in New York, 6 in Philadelphia, 17 in
San Francisco and one in Ypsilanti.
Is Quie
Young Aloysius is a modest, quiet,
unassuming chap, and makes an in-
'stant hit wherever he goes. He is a
handsome fellow and last week was
officially awarded the Hitthers-John-

son trophy which annually goes to the
best dressed man on Long Island. He
was the All-American prep school
end and in addition is a baseball play-
er of great repute. He has had offers
from the Tigers, Giants, White Sox,
Reds, Cardinals and the Bridgeport
ndependents. He was the most
prominent track star in his school
and is credited with running the 100-
yard dash in 9 2-5 on three occasions.
The A. A. U. is investigating, and
doubtlessly a new world's record will
be announced shortly. Recently he
ran an exhibition mile down Broad-
,way pursued by three policemen and
two head waiters and his time was
4:12 3-5, just 1-5 of a second slower
than the world's record which is held
by Norman Taber. With training and
college development he should im-
prove this mark considerably and I
Aare say he will be running close to
four minutes before the noon of Feb-
ruary 30 his senior year.
Close Contract
I understand that his father has re-
gently closed a contract with the di-
rectors of the' New Michigan union,
whereby it will be converted into a
garage for young Aloysius's cars, the
upstairs being devoted to sleeping
quarters for his servants.
Young, Aloysius was the high hon-
or student in his class, and he grad-
uated from prep schoolwith an av-
erage of 100.04 for his four years
work. He plays the violin in re-
markable style and twice when Maude
Powell has been unable to appear at
the Metropolitan Opera House, Aloy-
sius has substituted in her place.
trBy the way, Lee, get some new ash
trays. Young Aloysius smokes mon-
pgramed King Sized Pall Malls and
he ismaccustomed todusing radium ash
receivers, but I explained to him that
owing to Michigan's heralded democ-
racy, we only used gold ones in Ann
Arbor.
Young Aloysius will play on the
All-Fresh football, basketball, track

and baseball teams. He will not de-
vote any of his time to student pub-
lications, as he is preparing a treat-
ise on the fourth dimension, a thesis
on the true and exact nature of elec-
tricity and a scholarly disquisition on
psychasthenia and its relation to the
Teutonic individual. His literary ef-
forts will be devoted exclusively to
the furtherance of these masterly ef-
forts.
Leaves on Special
Young Aloysius leaves New York
on a special train Monday with his
father. His father will continue on
througlV to Chicago where he is going
to buy the Art Institute in the hopes
that he can find some suitable paint-
ings therein to decorate his son's col-
lege suite. Please plan to meet the
boy at the Michigan Central Depot.
His father insisted upon having a sid-
ing erected so that he could run his
train directly to U. Hall but I was

firm and convinced him that this
would run counter -&o Michigan's dem-
ocratic atmosphere. I would not of-
fer young Aloysius a, button until af-
ter he had stepped off the train. It
might look as though' we were rush-
ing matters if he were bid while still
leaving the car seat. Sruch impetuous
haste is unseemly and uttbecomes the
noble dignity of such 9n order as
ours.
Young Aloysius is 18 6-14 years old.
He weighs approximately '(63.8 and
breathes with both lungs. jIe uses
two legs in walking and spiiM be-
tween his teeth.' He will come to
:Michigan strongly recommended t'
several other organizations. Do not
offend the boy in any way as he is
quick tempered. Recently in a pri-
vate, bout in his own gold studded
gymnasium, he knocked Jess Willard
cold in 47 seconds. (They fought with
bare fists and Willard was uncon-
scious two days.)

._ _ i

Prohibition Stuff
Young Aloysius does not drink ex-
cept when he breaks training. (This
Is Christmas day and the Sunday be-
tween the closing of football season
and the opening of basketball.) He
is predisposed to Gordon Gin and
drinks it in beer glasses (bottoms up)
and uses whiskey chasers.
I hope you land the kid. He's a win-
ner. Wire me if you need any help.

RE

ODELED

He is dated up for four house part
already. Norma Talmadge is com:
to the J. Hop, Anita Stewart to
June party, and Emma Goldman
going to the union with him so
Saturday night. He will allow dan
there Saturdays as in the past, g
ing up the Sunbeam section of
garage to this purpose.
