Officials of the senior law class have
requested Prof. Gordon Stoner of the

ruling of the Michiganensian brought
before the board and settled favorably.
This action was sanctioned at a meet-
ing of the class yesterday afternoon,
and the matter will probably rest un-
til the board meets the first part of
next week. It is understood that the

misunderstanding on the part of the

a disposition to regard the matter as
a bluff by those in charge of the Mich-

an unfortunate mistake has resulted,
a favorable solution is desired.

Leaves Before Examinations and isĀ§
Reported Married.
Evading examinations at the crucial
moment, Finley A. Morrison, '15 E, ter-
minated his short college career by
packing up his belongings and disap-
pearing from Ann Arbor. For a time
no clue was obtained as to his where-
abouts but a report from Iron River,
his hofie town, reached here yester-
day to the effect that he had'been mar-
ried to a Miss Jones of that city. Ac-
cording to the meager information ob-
tainable, it is believed that the young
man went from Ann Arbor to Waupa-
ka, Wis., where his bride has been
teaching, and that the couple were
married there.
Josephine Morrison, '12, a sister, de-
nied any knowledge of her brother's
marriage when interviewed last night.
She stated that he had left college and
would not return but declared that
she had heard nothing of any mar-

Prominent Speakers and Varied'
Program Will Occupv En-
tire Week of Feb. 24
The biggest week in the history of
the Student Y. W. C. A.,since its found-
ing will be that from February 24 to
March 3.
For a number of years Miss King,
the secretary of the student Y. W. C. A.
has been trying to secure Miss Marie
Holnquist and Miss Bertha Conde, two
of the best known national secretaries
of the Y. W. C. A. to speak here. Ow-
ing to the popularity of these two
women, it has been impossible to get
them before. Both women reside in
New York City. Miss Conde is a grad-,
uate of Vassar and Miss Holnquist of
Smith. They will be the principal
speakers in this week of activities
which include daily meetings at New-
berry Hall and a large banquet.
The initial affair of one week will
be the banquet to 300 girls at Newber-
ry Hall on the 24th of February. The
program for this has not yet been
definitely arranged but some interest-
ing speeches are promised. On Sun-
day at 6:00 the first of a series of
meetings, lasting throughout the week,
will be held at Newberry Hall. The
rest of the week these meetings will
be held at 7:00.
The subjects for these meetings will
be of a religious nature, such as "A
College Woman's Attitude Towards
Faith." It is to be in no sense a reviv-
al- meeting but a calm discussion of
questions occurring in the every day
life of a college woman.
All of the churches in Ann Arbor are
supporting this series of meetings and
all the prominent soloists of the
churches have consented to sing at
these meetings.
The detailed program, including that
of the banquet will be given out early
next week.
Prof. Roth Talks in Grand Rapids.

estry Department gave'a lecture'on the
"Forests of Michigan" in Grand Rapids
last Tuesday evening. The lecture
was one of the university extension
course and will be followed by others
