Willets of the Oyster Bay tendered a
banquet to the track team, the mem-
bers of Michigan football teams, and
several invited guests last evening.
A feature of the gathering ,was the
presentation to Dr. Kraenzlein of a
gold witch fob by the athletes he has
had in charge during the last year.
The banquet was in the nature of
the regular training table meal for the
track athletes who leave for the east
this evening. The other guests were
treated'to a substantial spread. At
the conclusion of the dinner, Captain
Pat Gamble of the track team arose
and presented Dr. Kraenzlein with they
watch fob engraved with the initials of
the trainer on the outside, and bear-
ing the legend "From his Boys at Mich-
igan, 1911-1912," on the inner case.
Dr. Kraenzlein made a response to the
presentation, and after a rousing Mich-
igan song and yell the gathering broke;
up.
Those present besides the athletes'
and Dr. Kraenzlein were Director P.
G., Bartelme, Dr. George May, Coach
Branch Rickey and Assistant Director
George Moe.
STUDENTS TO BE EMPLOYED AS
WAITERS DUING CELEBRATION
Thirty students will be employed
by the Michigan Union as waiters Our-
ing the Seventy-fifth Anniversary Cel-
ebration. The majority of the posi-
tions have not been reserved as yet.
Application should be made at the Un-
ion at once by those desiring the po-
sitions. The waiters will probably be
employed for the whole week.
Women Representatives to be Chosen.
Independent representatives of the
board of the Women's League will be
chosen Friday afternoon, when a meet-
ing will be held in Barbour gymna-
sium at 5 o'clock. The president of
the League requests that all inde-
pendent women be present.

ENGINEERS STAND
BY FUTURE UNION
Committee Reports Show that Thirty
One Seniors Have Taken Out
Life Memberships
CAMPAIGN TO CLOSE SATURDAY.
Reports, extremely meagre, from
the campaign that is being carried on
among the senior engineers for Mich-
igan Union life membersfhips, point
to the one ponclusion that the "Big
Idea" of the unionizing of all Michigan
men has taken firm root. Thirty-one
future tripod carriers and one instruc-
tor already have signed the cards that
will make them stockholders in the
new 'Michigan Union clubhouse. The
list includes the returns from but a
few of the committeemen who have
charge of the work, and the total num-
ber of life memberhips will be in-
creased greatly within the next few
days, when all'the returns have been
handed in and tabulated.
The campaign is slated to end Sat-
urday evening after the all senior frol-
ic that is to be held at Whitmore Lake.
The canvasses that are being made in
the other departments will also be
brought to a close at this time. A
complete, list of the results will be,
published in the Daily as soon as they
have been collected and revised. It
is expected that at least a hundred
memberships will be secured among
the engineers, and at least this num-
ber is assured among the literary stu-
dents. So far it has been impossible
to gauge the results in the law, medic,
dental and the combined departments,
but as soon as the committeemen have
finished their work the results will be
included with the other departments.
The following is a list of the seiiors
who have already signed the member-
ship cards.'
C. W. Hannon, A. Duffy, S. S. Law-
rence, C. W. Wright, Joe Hudnut, Roy
Campbell, H. S. Steinhauser, R. S. Van
Dyke, W. S. Heald, Jerry Collins, J. D.

M. K. Baer, R. T. Ruetnik, P. S. Cham-
berlain, D. S. Patterson.
E. E. Ware, an instructor in the
chemical engineering department, has
also taken 'out a life membership. The
membership is not being pushed
among the faculty, but Mr. Ware join-
ed voluntarily.
DEUTSCHER VEREIN PLAY IS
READY FOR DETROIT TRIP.
The last rehearsal to be held in Ann
Arbor for the Detroit production of
"Die Journalisten," the Deutscher Ve-
rein play, took place Monday evening.
At its conclusion, Director Townley
remarked he was delighted with the
splendid manner in which the play
went. A final dress rehearsal will be
held at the Garrick Theater Friday af-
ternoon, prior to the evening perform-
ance.
The production has aroused a great
deal of .enthusiasm in Detroit and a
heavy advance sale is reported.
Dr. Fey spoke informally on the
Franco-Prussian war at the meeting
of the senior men's section of the
Deutscher Verein last night. This
was the last meeting of the year.

INDISCRIMINATE

READING OPPOSED
Librarian Koeh Thinks Ellis' Works
Should be Withheld From
General Circulation.
FACULTY MEN DFFER IN VIEWS
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
To every librarian there comes
frogs time to time the delicate ques-
tion as to how far he can or should
try to regulate the reading of his cli-
entele. Inasmuch as the great ma-
jority of books that come into a uni-
versity library are selected by the
teaching staff, the university librarian
is not so much concerned with book
seljetion as is his colleague in the
public library. Yet even in a univer-
sity library the question of fitness will
sometimes arise in regard to certain
books needed by the specialist but
viewed with interest by the curious
eyes of those for whom the books were
not intended. To such a class belong
some of the editions of the early nov-
elists and dramatists, English as well
as Italian and French, and certain
editions of works like The Arabian
Nights annotated for the use of the
student of comparative literature and
folklore. Inasmuch as the majority of
these classics have been carefully and
judiciously edited by, scholars with
ripe judgment and good taste, the li-
brarian can usually find an edition
suited to the needs of the average mod-
ern reader.
The class of literature to which be-
long the works of Havelock Ellis under
discussion furnishes a more complex
problem. "Studies in the Psychology
of Sex' by this writer is without ques-
tion a valuable contribution to the lit-
eraturd of -the subject. But so is
Krafft-Ebing's "Psychopathia Sexual-
is." They are, however, hardly fit
books for our red star cise. Mr. Ellis
was well known as the editor of the
Contemporary Science Series before he
issued the first volume of the "Stud-
ies." With the appearance of the sec-
ond volume the work was suppressed
by the English Government, and as
judicial opinion rendered it impossible
for English booksellers to sell the
volumes without risk of prosecution,
Mr. Ellis resolved to issue the series
in the United States. The volumes
are now published by a Philadelphia
medical publisher, with the express
understanding that they are to be "sold
only to physicians and lawyers."
I was fully posted on the run which
this work was having among certain
students and had discussed the matter
with various members of the medical
faculty, who held different opinions
as to what ought to be done in the
case. When the doctors disagree who
is to decide? Last fall a member of
the faculty, who has had a son in the
university and knows our students in-
timately from daily administrative
contact, spoke to me about the advis-
ability of putting Ellis among the re-
served books. I discussed the matter
informally vith the Director of the
Psychopathic Hospital and he was so
decided in his opinion that the books
had an unhealthy influence on the
mind of the average youthful unscien-
tific reader, that I was glad to abide
by his advice and retire the books so
that only those who made clear the
fact that they needed them for sci-
entific purposes could get them at the
desk. In this decision I am support-
ed by the London Lancet, a high med-
