Number Greate; Than Last February
Though "Cons" and "Plucks"
MARKING SYSTEM PLAN AMENDED
Thirty-two students were last niglt
sent notices of dismissal from the lit-
erary department on account of fail-
ures. At a faculty meeting held yes-
terday afternoon the findings of the
committee,, in the cases of those who
were in danger, were considered and
action was taken as to their continued
residence in the university.
The numbers of the "busted" are a
little larger this year than they were
last, but this is due to an increased
strictness in the standard of scholar-
ship which it is the policy of the fac-
ulty to foster. The actual number of
"cons" and "plucks," though no data
are tabulated, is considered to be less
this year than in some.time past.
An amendment was made, at the
meeting, to the resolution in regard to
the new grading system. In the case.
of absence from examinations, instead
of waiting till a time corresponding
to that set for the present "con" ex-
arms, the student will be required to
take the supplementary test within
one month after the beginning of the
new semester. This is the same ru:
which is to prevail in regard to cours-
es marked "incomplete."3
In 'regard to the new system, one1
feature which has not been brought
out very strongly is the fact that data
concerning the marks given by every
instructor are to be published for the
benefit of the faculty. In this way inl
structors prone to be too liberal,1
or otherwise, are expected to be
brought under the pressure of popu-
lar opinion and influenced to conform
their standards to the normal.
GAME TOURNAMENTS BOOMING.
Organizational Contests, in Bowling,
Billiards and Pool, Close.:
Along with the other activities that
mark the new semester, interest is
booming in the various billiard, pool
and bowling leagues in the State'
street billiard' parlors. As the scores
stand at the present, the sophomore,
lits lead in class billiards, with a thir-
ty-three point lead over the senior lits,
and in pool the senior engineers are
first, with the freshmen engineers1
holding second place.-
In the Palladium league, Phi Kappa
Psi stands at the head of the list in]
billiards with Psi Upsilon enjoying
second place, while in pool Psi Upsi-
lon has a twenty point lead over the'
nearest competitors, Beta Theata Pit
and Chi Psi, who are tied for second,
WATER HO! DISCOVERED AT
TWO HUNDRED FOOT DEPTH
Local Aqua Pura May Contain irac-
ulous Medicinal Properties
That Will Win Fame.
With many laborious chuggings, a
wheezy old donkey engine, tethered in
the yard of a good doctor on Hill
street, has been sneezing and other-
wise endeavoring to clear out its bron-
chial tubes for some months past. The
braying of the creature daily impinges
on the refined atmosphere which per-
yades this part of the community. Fed
with generous rations of soft coal, the
brute has persistently driven the iron
antennae of a six-inch drill deep into
the glacial drift upon which this fair
city is built.
Working on the theory that a new
route to China was on the point of be-
ing discovered a representative of the
"Michigan Daily" was assigned to
"probe" the doctor. An entirely new
theory was revealed, however, when
the doctor confided, "At last we have
struck-" "Oil?" gasped our repre-
sentative with bated breath, visions of
Beaumont and Bakersfield crowding
into his mind. "Water?" you say.
"Yes, we have found an inexhausti-
ble supply at a depth of over two hun-
dred feet, lying beneath a thin filter of
gravel," replied the doctor "but it re-
mains to be tested as to its purity."
whether it possesses-a peculiar aro-
ma or miraculous medicinal properties
will be known in due time. Meanwhile
we may look for the appearance of a
sparkling new table water under the
trade name of "Rameses" dr "Michi-
genda" or something which will carry
the fame of our institutions from Sher-
ry's to Rector's and beyond. It is only
after three costly attempts that the
doctor has succeeded in obtaining the
supply of .qua pura which he sought
and he is now planning a "water par-
ty" as an appropriate function to cele-
brate the opening of the well.
AUDIENCE WAITED TWO HURS
FOR GOVERNOR ON LAST VISIT
Though Greatly Delayed by Bad Roads
Gov. Osborn Was Greeted
by Big Crowd.
History repeats itself, sometimes.,
The managers of the Washington's
Birthday exercises, and the other ac-
tivities in which Governor Osborn will
participate, hope, however, that to-
day's audience will not have the op-
portunity of displaying the loyalty to
the executive that was displayed on
the occasion of his last address in
University Hall. That was in the sum-
mer time and the. Governor essayed to
reach Ann Arbor by automobile.
Rough roads and weak tires prevented
the arrival of the speaker until nearly
two hours after the time set for the
address to begin. But few people leftl
the hail and they announced that they
would be back at nine o'clock, and
they were. When they came back they
biought more with them and when
the Governor arrived at 9:30 a record
crowd was awaiting him.
Snow drifts may not prove' so seri-
ous a handicap as tires. l
