Attitude Towards Union And
City Pastors Will Be

IThe long continued silence that thej
Y. M. C. A. has maintained by its fail-j
ure to answer charges that have beenr
hurled against-it by members of the
local Pastor's Union and the support-
ers of the Michigan Union is about to
be broken. Definite promises have
been made by the Y. M. C. A. author-
ities that a communication will be giv-
alI the music for "The en to the Michigan Daily within the
Ranmeies" with the excep- next two days which will define thei
Y. M. C. A.'s future attitude towards1
the churches and the Michigan Union.

Heads of Universitv.M.AC. andj
Mining School Investigate t
That the three state institutions of
ihigher learning-,-the University, thec
r Agricultural College, and the School of{
Mines-should cooperate intimately,.
was the conclusion reached by the ,
presidents of the respective schools ate
a conference held, Wednesday, in De-
troit. The meeting was but prelimi-:
nary in nature but the preparation forg
permanent cooperation, and the provis- o
ion made for regular quarterly con-a
1 ferences between the heads of the;
three schools, promise a great better-
ment in regard to the present system e
of higher education in Michigan. Ir
"Ve are going to hold four meetings
every year in the future," said Pres-
ident Harry B. Hutchins when asked s
about the new movement yesterday.b
"One conference will be held at each s
of the schools interested, while the
fourth will be held in some other townp
of the state. Our next meeting will t
be at Lansing on February 8th of nextp
year." I
The idea of encouraging coopera-'
tion between the three state institu- b
tions of higher learning was first pro- t
mulgated by Governor Chase S. Os- w
born. The latter thought that, per- t
haps, some needless duplication of a
various courses existed between the t
three state schools, and that a moret
direct cooperation would tend to mini- n
mize this fault. As an example of the g
overlapping of courses, it was pointed s
out that general engineering is vE
offered at every one of the three state w
schools, while forestry courses are in
given at both M. A. C. and the Univer-zi
sity. It is realized that students can-
not well rotate between the various a
schools to complete their education, tc
thereby making it possible to teach tb
a certain subject in one institution on- a
ly., but it is hoped that the present du- f
plication can be remedied to some ex-
tent, if only as a matter of economy. tb
President J. L. Snyder, of M. A. C., aN
was the guest of President Hutchins,
.in Ann Arbor Wednesday evening, on u
the return of the two state school S
heads from the conference in Detroit. ai
President F. W. McNair, of the School tr
of Mines, spent yesterday here as the tc
guest of President Hutchins.

Athletic Director Sighted Again.
Director Bartelme, who is voyaging
in the interest of Michigan athletics
has again been spoken in a familiar
port. Associated Press reports from
Syracuse, which appeared in the met-
ropolitan press yesterday morning, re-,
ported that the Methodists renewed a
two-year football contract with the
Wolverines by terms of which the
Michigan eleven is to appear in the
Syracuse stadium on the twenty-sixth
of next October.
Council May Be Reached at the Union.
Persons wishing .to communicate
with the Student Council relative to
any matter of campus interest can
reach that organization through the
Union by leaving their communications
at the clubhouse. It is thought that
this process will be more prolific of
results than through the old method of
sending communications to different
council men.
