A Welcome Change.
After several years of criticism upon
the part of the students, the engineer-
ing authorities and the Board' of Re-
gents have investigated the Civil En-
gineering department and discovered
that there was much cause for the crit-
icisms. There has been a general
shakeup in that branch and every
member of the department is more
than grateful to the faculty and the
If, year after year a majority of
students, acknowledged to be above
the average intelligence, fail to pass
their courses, something is wrong. And
the fault is not with the students ei-
ther. It certainly is a reflection upon
the ability of an instructor if only a
minority can pass his courses after
a semester's instruction.
The authorities have evidently. con-
doned with this view after several de-
vastating years and nothing is more
welcome to the student body than the
changes in this branch of engineering.
Future years will undoubtedly prove'
the wisdom of the change. . '
Dr. William F. Breakey.
Alumni and students of the Depart-
nent of Medicine will hear with. regret
of the resignation of Dr. William
Fleming Breakey. Forty-four years
ago, Dr. Breakey entered the service
of the university and during his long
period of faithful and efficient service
has *von his way into the hearts of
students and faculty alike.
Some men contribute one thing and
some another as their quota of ser-
vice, but in our mind, the man who
works for the well being of mankind
and helps in any measure to alleviate
their woes is the greatest of all.
Among men of this type, Dr. Breakey
stands in the front rank and the uni-
versity can ill afford his loss. Even
with his heavy work at the university,
Dr. Breakey has always been
public spirited and served both his
country and state at every possible op-
portunity, and for men- such as these,
the university should be doubly grate-

the more doubtful candidates.
As far as can be learned, all of those
elected to membership this year will
accept the honor, thus precluding any
possibility of a recurrence of the situa-
tion of last year, when two of those
chosen refused the key.
STUDENT OF PHILOSOPHY
GARNERS ENVIABLE HONORS.
Phi Beta Kappa and Fellowships From
Michigan and Princeton Come
All in One Day.,
Honors do not come singly-at least
for Henry Van Wesep, a seniorlit
from Holland, Mich., who within a
single day learned that he had been
elected to Phi Beta Kappa, that he
had been offered a $300 fellowship in
philosophy at Michigan, and finally,
that he had been awarded a similar
fellowship at Princeton University
The Princeton fellowship, which is
applied for by both graduated and un-
dergraduates from the leading univer-
sities, carries a sum unusually large
for a student entering upon his grad-
uate work. It is one of the most
highly rcoveted scholarship plums of-
fered throughout the country.
"Van Wesep is a student of most ex-
traordinary ability" said Professor
Wenley last evening. "I am particu-
larly happy that he has been given
this opportunity to study at Princeton
inasmuch as it will enable him to con-
tinue his work in philosophy under
Professor Norman Smith." '
Professor Smith succeeded Dr. Wen-
ley at the University of Edinburgh
when the latter came to Michigan..
DUES AND SPRING DANCE
SWELL SOPH LIT COFFERS
Yesterday's campaign for soph lit
dues was fairly successful, about fif-
ty dollars being taken in at the table
in University Hall. The treasurer will
continue his efforts to collet from ev-
ery member of the class and those
who have not paid up will oblige' him
by doing so immediately. It is hoped
that the class finances will be helped
somewhat by the spring party ,which
will be held this afternoon at two
o'clock in Barbour gym. Since this is
the last dance to "be given by the '14
lits this year, and since the tickets are
only twenty-five cents apiece, a large
attendance is expected.

Refusals of Phi Beta Kappa Honors
Will Not Occur This Year.
That the original Phi Beta Kappa
list for 1912 contained Iut sixteen
names, and that the six additional'
names were only added after consider-
able discussion in the committee on the
election of new members, was asecr-
tained yesterday. This, however, is
the usual method of procedure, the
first list being composed of students
practically certain of the honor, while
the remainder are selected from among
That Ann Arbor did not go dry at
the recent election is testified to by
the "Down Town" number of the Gar-
Bgoyle. Indoor sports and the blithe-
some frivolities of the carefree student
were depicted with ruthless stringency
by both the pictorial and word humor-
ists of the staff. The "Come-Back" is-
sue was shown up," but the rest of
the magazine was devoted to the
pleasures and pastimes of the merry
