Featured by a comedy playlet en-
titled "Every Day in the Year," with
Les Morgan and Beryl Gray playing
the roles, the Majestic this week pre-
sents a greatly varied but excellent
bill for vaudeville lovers.
The playlet typifies the difficulties of
getting to an 8 o'clock as well as the
hardships of being a commuter, but
it is to be doubted if any student so
lost track of the days of the week that
he took the trouble to roll out of bed
on Sunday morning to make a class.
Burt Carl and Beth Le Claire dis-
play good voices and good danc-
ing ability, with a brand of fast-mov-
ing patter not often found on the
boards. Frawley and West offer some-
thing new and original in their gym-
nastic work, which is greatly enhanc-
ed by some clever lighting effects.

About 20 freshmen and five sopho-
mores were limbering up yesterday for
the Fresh-Soph relay race to be held
Saturday betWeen halves of the Michi-
gan-Washington game.
H. E. O'Brien, '17, is in charge of
the underclassmen and will be on
Ferry field daily from 3 to 5 o'clock.
There is still time for the second
year men to come out and make a
success of the relay. The freshmen
have some very promising material
out and unless the sophomores show
more spirit it will be the story of the
rush over again. The trials will be
held on Wednesday and Thursday,
from 3 to 5 o'clock.
Coach Yost to Address Boys Tonight
Coach Yost will speak to a junior
open house of Ann Arbor boys at the
local city Y. M. C. A. tonight. Louis
Reimann, '16, will also talk at the

Yearlings Fight Hard But Opponents
Are Too Strong; Score,
Totaled 14-0
The junior engineers won the first
game of their schedule yesterday aft-
ernoon, defeating the freshmen of the
same department 14 to 0. The fresh-
men put up a good fight but were not
as steady as their upperclass oppon-
ents. They were particularly weak in
the handling of punts which Dudley,
the junior quarter, got off in regular
Varsity style.
Rye played a fast game and was a
consistent ground gainer for the
juniors. Good kicked two perfect
goals following the touchdowns.
Warner in the backfield and Hayes and
G. Anderson on the line played the
best game for the freshmen.
