i IS TO BETTER OLD METHODS,
ne misunderstanding seems to
been aroused here and there in
tudent body by the cards which
recently been sent out from the
of the Committee on Non-Ath-
Organizations. The feeling has
expressed that it is a form of
rnalism," interference on the part
e faculty with non-academic af-
and that it may ultimately result
rtailing students' liberties in so-
t13 The fact is that heretofore the same'
is thing has been done, on a less system-
es atic basis. It has been the custom:
s for the committee to procure from the
heads of all campus organizations a
list of the members. One of the ways
ts in which these names are used is in re-
ed spect to students delinquent in their
work. Older members may be notified
of the poor standing of their colleagues
and there is thus an indirect though
effective means of prodding the lag-
or ger to better efforts. In order to obvi-
ate the apparent inconvenience in this
il- scheme, of ha,,ink to search many of
he the separate lists to identify a stu-
h- dent with his societies, the new method
an of a card catalogue was introduced, at
gh the instance of the Senate Council.
"I cannot see what students ha e to
es object to in the proposed plan,", said
m_ Professor Effinger, chairman of the
at Non-Athletic committee. "It is only a
or more convenient and systematic way
te of doing what has been done before.
wo Our object is only to be able to put
ng the committee in closer touch with the
Id various campus organizations."

CHICAGO, ILL., Jan. 26. (Special)-
Summer baseball was defeated by the
opposition at the meeting of the West-
ern Conference held here today and
the "Big Eight" still remains united.
Despite the efforts of the representa-
tives from Minnesota, Illinois and In-
diana, the conference downed this
proposition which has been the vital
question before the body for the past
few months and w.hich has -threatened.
to disrupt the "fold."
However, there is yet a chance that
a split may occur. The Gophers are
in a fihting mood and today's session
of the meeting bids fair to see some
wordy discussions between the Min-
nesotians and the rest of the represen-
tatives. Although Michigan was not
mentioned at today's session, rumor
was current that the Gophers would
fliht for the right to meet the Woler-
ines against all opposition.
Ohio State University presented its
petition for admittanceto the confer-
ence but the matter was tabled until
today when the final action will prob-
ably be taken. No statements regard-
ing the attitude in which the Ohioans
are held -by the conference could be
secured as all- of the representatives
refused to be interviewed on the mat-
The amendment concerning the pro-
testing of players which was introduc-
ed following the squabble between
Wisconsin and Minnesota over the eli-

Ac icrding to reports in yesterday's
dispatches, Michigan was having its
troubles in the athletic field apart from
he conference. The wildest of these
reports was that Nebraska had offered
Michigan a game and had stipulated
that it had to be either accepted or re-
jected inside of thirty six hours. In-
quiry proved the fact that there was
no truth in the report at all and that
negotiations with Nebraska had not
been opened yet.
When it became known that the con-
ference meeting in Chicago was getting
stormy, there were further rumors
concerning Minnesota. In speaking
of the matter Director Bartelme stated
that if Minnesota should break they
would be offered a game on the 23rd
of November, which is at present open
If Minnesota is not in a position to
schedule a game, the date will remain
open unless a game can be arranged
with some institution, that would rank
as high in the opinion of the studnt
body as a Minnesota contest.
Is Unable to Meet His Classes.
Professor Emil Lorch, head of the
architectural department, has been
confined to his home with a severe case
of grippe, and as a result has been
unable to meet his classes. "Jo" Hud-

Doctors E. L. Whitman and R. B
Howell, of the Dental college, returned
yesterday from Chicago where they
attended the annual meeting of the In-
stitute of Dental Pedagogics. The
other members of the faculty will re-
turn this morning.

EDIFICE TO BE FINISHED BY FALL

side Work Seven Months Af-;
ter Starting Building
Active construction work on the new
Hill Memorial auditorium is certain
to be commenced within a few weeks
by reason of final arrangements for
the purchase of a site for the structure
acted upon by the Regents yesterday
As expected, the edifice will be located
on the combined Winchell and York
lots, directly across from the campus
on North University avenue, the pur-
chase of the York property having
finally been authorized yesterday at
the price demanded by the owners.,
That ground will be broken for the
erection of the new structure within
a month, weather conditions per-
mitting, is the opinion of Secretary
Shirley W. Smith. The contract for
the construction pro ides that the ed-.
ifice be finished, except for interior
work, seven months from the time
building operations are begun, so it is
altogether probable that the auditori-
um will be completed, ready for occu-
pancy,. when school reopens next Oc-

COURSE OUTLINES ATTACKED.,
Dean Bates Sends Circular Letter
in Hope of Stoping Sale.
Dean H. M. Bates of the law depart-
ment, has sent out circular letters to
the various state street bookstores re-
questing them to discontinue the sale
of outlines of certain courses which
have been prepared by a number of
upper classmen, and put on sale at
these stores. This letter, a copy of
which has been placed on the bulletin
bcards, states that these outlines de-
feat the purpose for which the student
attends the university, namely, to be
able to think and do his work for him-
self, and furthermore, that there are
numerous errors, even in the best of
the outlines, which may result disas-
trously for those who use them.
