by affording lounging, reading, grill,'
and billiard rooms where the unfor-

MICHIGAN FORESTER MAKES
FIRST APPEARANCE TODAY.
The first number of the year of the
Michigan Forester, the quarterly pub-,
lication of the Forestry Club, makes
its appearance today. This issue of
the magazine is devoted largely to
news of Michigan foresters who are
in the field. Sketches of Leigh J.
Young and Whiting Alden, the new in-
structors in the forestry department,
are also given, as well as general!
news of the department. Considerable
space is devoted to a directory of the
forestry graduates.
Calcium Sulphate Delays Lab Work.
The presence of calcium sulphate in
the distilled water has caused many
set-backs in the analytical work in
chemistry. For this reason, the chem-
ical laboratory will be open until Fri-
day.
Class to Paint Picture of Rameses.
In view of the fact that the robes
worn by Rameses, alias Arthur G. Co-
hen, of the Union Opera, offer such ar.
tistic effects in their color scheme, an
oil painting of the old "Egyptian" will
be made by the members of a. class in
oil painting, conducted by Prof. W. C.
Titcomb.

les, Hamlin Garland, apearing as the
fifth number on the S. -L. A. program,
gave those who visited University Hall
a talk on the "Joys of the Trail" that
will linger long in their minds. It was!
a lecture from a master trailer, as he
styled himself, and portrayed the trials
and tribulations of a packer.
Tracing a trail from the plateaus ofj
Colorado to the wilds and mountains
of Montana, Washington and British
Columbia, all of the sensations and
encounters of the trailer were vividly
told by the lecturer. Poetry and hu-
mor were intermixed with the prose,
and the effect was unusually pleasant.
Probably the most humorous experi-
ence related by the speaker was the
joy of breaking in a new pony that.
was like a wound up toy and continu-
ally tried to stand on his back.
SENIOR LAWS FAIL TO ADOPT
INTER-CLASS CONSTITUTION.
r Hopes for the general adoption of a
uniform class constitution received
a bump yesterday when the senior
laws voted to lay on the table the mod-'
el constitution drawn up by the Stu-
dent Council. Members of the class
feel that their present constitution,
which has been uniform in the law de-
partment for some time, is perfectly
satisfactory and that a shift would be
somewhat of an inconvenience.
"The constitution promulgated by
the Council is a good one," said R. S.
Bonisteel, president of the senior law
class, "but we couldn't see our way
clear to substitute it for our old con-!
stitution at this late hour."
Arrangements for having the class!
