"The Law's Delay" was the subject
of the winning oration. The speaker
traced the steps by which the law-
breakers are. enabled to escape the
just punishments of their misdeeds,
deploring the loopoles through which
they escape, as well as the delay which
is so prevalent in our legal system.
"The very fiber of our judicial system
is weakened by these exasperating de-
lays," he declared, " and indeed the
picture of Justice, blindfolded, aptly
expresses the existing regime, inas-
much as it is thus spared the sight of"
its injustice."
Sycip had as his subject "China and
the Powers." He traced for his kear-
ers the steps by which China has ris-
en from the backward trend and is
now ready to assume its rightful po-
sition among the powers of the world.
He scoffed at the idea of the Yellow
Peril and stated that China would be-
come a real yellow peril only if forced

the spring months. A leeway has to

1912 Classes Favor The Idea, But Will
Probably Follow Old
Sentiment among the memorial com-
mittees of the senior classes on the
campus seems to favor the idea of a
scholarship as a class memorial, al-
though it seems but barely possible
that the graduating classes this year
will leave a scholarship as a remem-
brance of the classes of 1912. ,
G. H. Bancroft, chairman of the sen-
ior engineering memorial committee,
stated that considerable sentiment had
been evidenced in favor of the new
plan. "We also have under advise-
ment," he declared, "several other
plans, among them, the furnishing of
a room or a fireplace at the Union,
furnishing the room of the Engineer-
ing Society, or placing a bronze stat-
ue in Memorial hall. However, the
matter of a scholarship will be given
careful attention and if the plan seems
at all feasible it is likely to be adopt-
The affairs of the memorial commit-
tee of the enior lits are shrouded in
secrecy. Chairman Edward Kemp
stated that the committee had met, but
he refused to give out any details, oth-
er than announcing that full plans for
the memorial would be given out in a
couple of weeks.
The senior law class, in accordance
with the plan followed for several
years, will place a painting of one
of the members of the law faculty in
the law library. A painting of Profes-
sor E. R. Sunderland will be given. by
the present class, following the plan
of painting the oldest member of the
faculty whose picture is not already
hung in the library.
Neither the senior medics' nor the
senior dents have seriously consider-
ed the matter of a memorial as yet,
but both classes will hold cass meet-
ings in the near future, and the ques-
tion of providing for a scholarship
fund will be given careful considera-
tion at that time.
Special Program This Afternoon, by
Representatives of Chinese
and Cosmopolitan Clubs
The Tower of Babel, with .all its
confusion of tongues, will be reenact-
ed. Six nations will conglomerate at
the Michigan Union today. Men of
divers creeds and races, typifying the
cosmopolitanism of Michigan, will en-
tertain Union members in a musicale
this afternoon.
Chinese, Hindus, Armenians, Turks,
Porto Ricans, and Italians are to com-
bine in a recital presenting the native
music of six nations. Two Chinese
students, Y. F. Hsu and Y. Chen, will
perform on the Chinese Wu Gen and
flute, giving both native and European
music. A Hindu quintette, directed by
P. Das, will sing national hymns and
songs with a piano accompaniment.
Before this number, a short history of
Indian songs will be given and Das
will sing a hymn which was composed
about 3,000 B. C. The national song
of India will also be sung by the quin-
L. G. Besh, of Armenia, will present
a number of Turkish and Armenian
airs. M. Converso, formerly solo-cor-
netist in Creatore's band, will play sev-
eral Italian airs on the cornet. R.
Suarez, the Porto Rican representa-
tive, is booked for a number of Span-
ish and native pieces on the violin,
with a piano accompaniment.
This afternoon's program was ar-
ranged by James D'Evlin, William

Welsh, president of the Cosmopolitan
club and A. Z. Sycip, president of the.
Chinese club. The first number on the
program will be given at 3 o'clock.
Special arrangements have been made
by the Union committee to receive the
guests. Cigars, cigarettes, and cider
will be served as refreshments.
Only 26 students at Kansas failed in
the semester's work. Standings are
inspected weekly.
