Few Rich Sons at Michigan.
At a farmers' institute held at Owos-
so last week the opinion was expressed
by one of the speakers that the stu-
donts at the University of Michigan
are for the most part sons and daught-
ers of wealthy parents, the implication
being that the children of farmers
have small share in the benefits of
higher education. This is a widely pre-
valent opinion, but one that has often
been proved to be wholly erroneous.
At the last official canvass of the stu-
dents it appeared that the number of
those belonging to any other claus, be-
ing in fact about one-third of the total.
Referring to this fact, President Angell
used the following signitiflent words so
a report to the board of regents:
"Most persons will be surprised to see
how greatly the number of farmers'
children exceeds every other class. If
we assume that the farmers gait their
living by manual toil and add to them
the other classes who unquestionably
support themselves by physical labor,
I estimate that the fathers of 45 per
cent of the students who reported may
properly be considered as thus gaining
their livelihood. . . . The figures
show what everyone familiar with our
students knows to be trite, that the
sons and daughters of the rich do not
form a very large percentage of ths
Readjustment of Courses in Elective
Latin-Course -8 in Latin, Roman Law:
The Institutes of Gaius and Justinian
will be offered the second semester.
This course is open to students of the
law and literary departments. It will
consist of an introductory course of
lectures on the history of Roman legis-
lation, recitations from Sanders' Insti-
tute of Justinian (in translation), and
a resume of the principles of Roman
Law'as given by Gaius and Justinian.
The object of the course is trpining in
Roman law rather than in Latin,
though an elementary knowledge of
Latin Is desirable. The class will meet
in Room 20; University Hall, on Mon-
day, Wednesday and Friday, at 1 p. m.
Course 6, Roman Satire, will be with-
drawn. JOSEPH DRAKE.
Made a Good Showing.
The U. of M. Whist Club made an
excellent showing at the tournament
of the Central Division of the State
Whist League held in Jackson on
Washington's Birthday. The contest
was in two parts, for teams of four and
for teams of two. In the first part Ann
Arbor team No. 1, conposed of Millet
and Murrell, and Ellsworth and Russel,
took third place; in the contest for pairs
Miller and Murrell won second place
and Bowen and Hawkhurst third place.
The Jackson teams won all the other
It is very probable that the March
meeting of the Central Division will
be held in Ann Arbor. Our showing at
Jackson has established our reputation
as a whist club and the executive com-
mittee will do all in their power to have
the tournament held here, realizing
that it would do much to boos the
game in the University.
Football Players, Beware,
A case which has been heard by Jus-
tice Hawkins is of interest to football
players all over the world. A man was
killed at football and the prisoner was
charged with manslaughter and was
convicted. Justice Hawkins laid down
his view of the law with unmistakeable
clearness. He said that if a man caus-
ed violence, whether wilfully or by
negligence to another, in such a way
as to produce death, he was guilty of
murder and, therefore, "rough players
of this dangerous game" must beware
or get into serious trouble. The judge
addded: "As, however, the prisoner
has exhibited sincere sorrow and bears
a good character, I will discharge hisn
on his own recognizance in EA bail."
