"The directions taken by the differ-
ent technical schools .along lines of
instruction and inquiry form an in-<
teresting basis of study," said Prof. W.
L. Miggett, superintendent of the en-
gineering shops, when interviewed
yesterday regarding his recent trip
through the east.
"In one school I found the efficiency
of methods of instruction,' a topic for
investigation and study by the stu-
dents. This seems like an extreme
innovation but I suspect there are
Michigan students who would enjoy
such a course. The recent suggestion
to apply the methods of the efficiency
engineer to university instruction may
prove to be not altogether a joke.
"Yale University is like the boy who
never grew up. The exuberance of
youth seems to permeate it. Profes-
sor Crittenden, Director of Sheffield
Scientific School, assured me that it
was the first scientific school in the
United 'States, and was begun because
the Latin and Greek school would not
admit the scientific students.
"Harvard is difficult to describe
briefly. An intense spirit of loyalty is
manifest, but it is dignified. Profes-
sor Hollis, of Mechanical Engineering
seemed much more inerested in tell-
ing me about, Harvard Commons and
Harvard Union, than about Harvard
engineering. He is the design-
er of the Harvard Union build-
ing and, I believe, of the Har-
vard stadium. He took me to the
main club room and describedits uses;
one of which is the entertainment of
notable men. When the students of
Harvard want to see a man who is
making a new kind of noise, the Union
sends him an invitation to come and
talk to them. They don't hire hn to
deliver a lecture, or even offer to pay
his expenses. They just invite him
him to be their guest. He meets them
and talks to them as one of them. It
is very seldom a man declines one of
their invitations. Professor Hollis
himself expressed a willingness, even
a desire, to give Michigan students a
talk upon 'The Uses of the Union.'"
Number of Patrons for Union Dance

Two hundred and twenty-five out of
a possible two hundred and fifty tick-
ets have been -sold for the second
Michigan Union dance that will be
held in Barbour gymnasium tomor-
row evening. The remaining tickets
can be purchase at the clubhouse.
Complete arrangements- for the en-
tertainment of the Union's guests have
been made by the committee in-charge.
Light refreshments will be served to
the dancers during the party, and af-
ter the dance the Michigan Union will
serve a lunch for the guests at th

With the final and definite choice of
the members of the Cercle Francais
who will fill the roles of "Le Monde ou1
l'on s'ennuye," which will be given on
the evening of March 28 at the New
Whitney Theater, work began yester-
day- on a production which bids fair1
to surpass any play that the Cercle has
yet produced in its entire history. With
an especially fit cast to work with, Di-
rector Talamon is optimistic and be-
lieves that although the time is short
before the date set, it can be crowded,
with conscientious work more effect-
ively than if spread out. Copies of the
book have been placed in the hands ofj
the players and lines are being work-
ed rapidly into shape.
Somewhat different in character
fron any show that the Cercle has yet
attempted "Le Monde," by Edouard
Pailleron, is a strictly up-to-date mod-
ern comedy, portraying the life in Par-
is as it is today. Unlike the plays
which have been given in past years, it
is a rrce effort which is especially
simple inasmuch as it is' modern in
tone, and Its lines are more or less the
colloquialisms of the modern France
and not those of the days of a Moliere
or a remoter classicist or romanticist,
which it has been the past custom to,
Theindividual dramatic abilities of
this year's group who will put on the
play are as excellent as the Cercle has
ever gathered together.. The unusually
large number of roles is the feature of
the play, and the leaing.parts, though
not abundant,are of such a character
as to give the holders opportunities to
display some real dramatic ability.
A souvenir edition of the play will
be put out this year by members of the
French faculty. The manuscripts are
in the hands of-the editors at present
and the edition will appear early. The
rights to print Les Romanesques could
not be secured last year, but such a
difficulty has been overcome with this
year's production.,
Equals the Average State in Point of
College Students.
According to statistics which have
been recently compiled at the Univer-
sity of Kansas, Michigan is twenty-
third in the list of states, ranked in
accordance with the number of college
students per capita. Michigan has
one college student for every 291 in-
habitants, which represents the aver-
age of the United States in that line.
Kansas leads, having one student for
each 112 persons and Missouri is last
in the list, having only one student
toeach 381 of its population.
Prof. Cross Returns from Chicago.
Prof.' Herbert R. Cross returned
from Chicago yesterday where he de-
livered a lecture on "Michelangelo as
a Sculptor," before the art institute.
His lecture on "Early Italian Ren-
naisance Painters' which was to have
been given last night in the High
School auditorium has ben postponed
until next Wednesday evening, on ac-
count of the inclement weather.
