Dudley, director of the chemical lab-
oratory at Vanderbilt University, to
deliver an address here Thursday ev-

ber 18, Saturday, March 16 and Sat-
urday, May 4. The first dance will be

inal. Only members of the Union will
be allowed to purchase tickets.
These dances will be of the same na-
ture as the one given last spring un-
der the auspices of the Union.
The following men were named to

Aided by the Detroit alumnae and
the faculty, the Woman's League * is
conducting a campaign in that city to
secure funds for the long sought res-
idence hall. Miss Agnes Parks, who
was secured to take charge of the
work last spring, has taken up her res-
idence there and begun work. Presi-
dent Hutchins is cooperating with her.
He will spend today in the city, visit-
ing several business men, who it is
hoped will donate money for the pro-
At a meeting of the alumnae at De-
troit last week a committee was ap-
pointed to investigate the matter and
see what aid could be given the league.
At that time, Dean Jordan and Miss
Thuner explained to the Detroit wom-
en the needs of such a building and
asked that they help in the work.
About 100 invitations have been is-
sued to the Detroit alumnae to the
annual party which is given by the
women, who are rooming in the. six
houses, now operated by the league,
to the officers and members of the res-
idence hall committee. This event
will take place on November 9 and it
is expected that many Detroiters will
be present to talk with the women and
to visit the houses.
Detroit was selected as the starting
place because of its close proximity
to the university and because of the
officials' belief that enough money
to build one of the halls could be rais-
ed in that city. At present there is
about $17,500 in the building fund, part
of which has. been subscribed by De-
troit men. It will take about $100,000
to build the proposed hall. It is ex-
pected that this sum can be secured in
time to commence the structure in the
It is not likely that any other cities
will be canvassed until it is seen
how the scheme works out in Detroit.
All of the faculty are working with the
league officials and it is understood
that the latter also have the cooper-
ation of the regents.
Cabinet Club Held Smoker.

The following statement from the
Committee on Non-Athletic Organiza-
tions is in explanation of the set of
election rules that the Student Coun-
cil -has asked the different classes to
use this fall, and with which nearly
all are complying. The rules are taken
,rvr^ the uniform class constitution,
now in the hands of the non-athletic
committee for ratification, and have
been in themselves approved. Although
it is not possible to p-resent the con-
stitution in its entirety to the classes
at the present time, the employment
of the rules has been sanctioned. The
communication follows:
"The Committee on Non-Athletic Or-
ganizations has under consideration an
inter-class constitution, which will
soon be ratified and recommended to
the classes.
"In the meantime the present class
elections afford an opportunity to test
the election system as provided by
this new constitution, and the commit-
tee is willing to authorize such proced-
ure, although it may not conform to
existing class constitutions.
"Details concerning the new plan
will be supplied by members of the
Student Council, which is to have gen-
eral charge of class elections."
Husband Shoots Boarding House Keep-
er; Kills Self With Acid.
Mrs. Homer Underwood, who keeps
a student boarding house at 326 E. Lib-
erty street, was shot and badly wound-
ed by her husband yesterday morning.
The latter then committed suicide by
swallowing carbolic acid.
None of the boarders were present
when the tragedy occurred, but some
of them returned to the house for
lunch, quite unaware that anything
had happened.
They supposed Mrs. Underwood was
a widow, the couple not having lived
together for some time. C. O. Hollan-
ger, '15, who rooms in the house, re-
turned from class shortly after the
shooting. According to his statements,
the cause of the affair is unknown.
*The bullet entered Mrs.-Underwood's
neck. Her recovery is doubtful.

Norman Hackett.
NormanwHackett, former Michigan
student,' who will appear in "Satant
Sanderson" at the Whitney theater
tomorrow evening, was a founder of
the present Comedy Club, according to
Mrs. Josephine H. Murfin, whose
daughter-in-law helped to write his,
present play. Hackett belonged to the
class of '98 but spent only two years
in the university. During that time
he organized the Comedy Club and
played the leading role in the first pro-
duction. Aided by Carl Harriman, whot
has since become editor of the Green,
Book, Red Book and Blue Book, hef
placed thv dramatic organization on its
feet and helped it to a good start. I
Because of this, Mrs Murfin will en-
tertain the present club, as well asf
Mr. Hackett's friends, following the
performance. She has planned to have:
an informal reception at her home firt
the actor. This will come at the closex
of a busy day for Mr. Hackett. When-E
ever he comes to Ann Arbor, he is al-,
ways besieged with invitations andt
most of his time is spent in meeting
old friends. This year he will branch
out into the literary light, giving a talkt
on "Shakespeare Drama, The Pure En -
glish" to the students in the local high
school at 3:30 o'clock Wednesday af-
ternoon. In the morning he will speakt

Detective William J. Burns, who hasj
been secured by the the S. L. A. to
appear in Ann Arbor, delivered an ad-
dress at the University of Columbia
last week, and was met with a greati
show of hospitality by the students.;
"One of the most stirring addresses1
that has been delivered at Columbia
in many years," says the Columbia
Spectator in referring to his talk.
Burns contends that the greatest
moral crime a good citizen can com-
mit is to neglect or misuse the right
of franchise. In his work the detec-
tive has striven to interest clean men
in politics. He told in this connection,
how, in his work in California, he
had influenced honest men to take act-
ive part in the government, and there-
by wipe out the prevailing vice and
