t of service, he has made a special study
sky, of the quaint customs of the natives,

RECEIVES FLATTERING OFFER
FROM UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS.
Mr. David Friday, instructor in po-
litical economy, has received a flat-
tering offer from the University of
Texas to make him the head of the De-
partment of Business Training, a new
epartment just being organized at that
institution. In speaking of the offer,
Mr. Friday said, "The terms offered
are flattering, the school is one of the
richest of the later universities so that
I would have no trouble in regard to
equipment, and the field opeed is a.
broad one. The opportunities here
have broadened considerably, however,
with the changes in entrance require-
ments, which will make room for a
large number of high school teachers
of economics and business training.
I haven't fully decided whether to ac-
cept the offer or not, but if conditions
turn out as I hope they will, I expect
to remrain at Michigan."
