The executive committee of the
Good Government Club held their-
first meeting of the year yesterday
afternoon. They have nearly com-
pleted arrangements for a course of
lectures by prominent men on reforn
and economic topics to be given dur-
iig the coming year.
Last year was suchi t successful
one for the club that they determineii
to continue their work on a much
larger scale. Six lectures are to be
given by sues who are acknowledged:
authorities in their particular sib-
The first lecture it the course wil
be delivered by Wis. D. Foulke, o
Indiana, on "Civil Service Reform."
Mr. Foulke has an extensive lecture
list and a definite engagement was-
fortunately secured from biu eary
in the summer.
A second lecturer will be It.
Herbert Welsh, of Philadelphia He
will speak on "The Struggle 1ott
Good Government in America." Mr
Welsh is one of the finest orators is
the East and like Mr. Foulke ha-
for years been engaged in ref orm
work along political lines.
Prof. Tausig, of Harvard, sil
speak on "Taxation." He is a grea.
student of finance and is cosideret
by many an authority in his line /
Eugene V. Debs will leeture o
"The Laboring Man's Interest i
Good Government.' He has long
teet in close toucil sith the Aer-
can storking an and his appearantue
in this course will be his first wit
before an Ann Arbor audience.
The fifth susisber of the course is
one still open. The club, however,
holds an option on three men, all of
great state or national prominence.
The last lecture will be given biy
William Jennings Pryan on "The
Income Tax." He has assured the
club that he will certainly come to
Ann Arbor unless the unexpectedtl
happens. He is still in the army,
but does not expect to remain there
many weeks longer.
It is the purpose of the club to-
give the student body the benefit o&
this course of lectures almost with-
out charge. The tickets for the en-
tire course will be sold for fifty cents,
this amount being thought enough to-
pay the necessary expenses of the
course. The lecturers have offered
their services absolutely free, so the
only cost to the club will be their
