Reviews Change in Law Course at
Law Society's Initiation.
Dean Henry M. Bates of the law de-
partment spoke on "The New Curric-
ulum" at the annual fall initiation of
the "Woolsack" held at the Union last
night. He reviewed the changes that
have been made in the law course
during the past summer and said that
the idea of the change was to study a.
few subjects carefully in preference
to allowing a scattered application.
Professor Aigler also spoke on "The
Study of Cases" and Prof. Wilgus on
"Study and Practice of the Law."
Burke Shartel, one of last spring's
initiates, extended a welcoming speech
to the new members. James Cleary
speaking on "The Original Woolsack,"
gave a description of what the "Wool-
sack" is in real life. Cleary was a vis-
itor in England last summer and he
spoke from actual experiences, giving
an account of the history connected
with the "Woolsack." The names of
the initiates were run in a previous

Plans for this year's offering of Le
Cercle -Francais were laid at the ini-
tial meeting of the society last night.
An elaborate program is promised,
consisting of ten features similar to
those given last year.
M. Anatole Le Braz, of the Univer-
sity of Rennes, France, will open the
program in the early part of December
with a lecture and at a later date M.
Gustave Lancon of the University of
Paris will be here. Both lecturers
are presented in this country and at
Michigan under the auspices of the Al-
liance Francaise of America. The
play to be given this year, although
unofficially announced will be, in all
probability, "Le Monde ou l'on S'en-
nuy," an especially popular comedy
in France, written by Edward Pail-
leron. As usual, two soirees will be
featured by the cercle, a Soiree Lit-{
teraire and a Soiree Amicale. Mem-.
bership giving associate privileges
will be as in the past, to students 50
cents, to others $1.00.

Because of the concert to be given
by the Choral Union in University Hall
on the evening of November 17, the
night before the Pennsylvania game,
the mass meeting will in all probabil-
ity be held in Waterman gymnasium.
Maud Powell, the violinist has been
engaged by the Choral Union to play
in University Hall that evening. "But,"
said Director Bartelme yesterday,
"Though we knew of this date, no at-
tempt was made by the old athletic
board to -secure the hall, not only be-
cause of the conflict in dates, but al-
so because we believed the gym would
be a more appropriate building to hold
the mass meeting in. The new board
will meet next ,week and at that time
will make definite arrangements for
the holding of the meeting. One will,,
of course, be held."

Dwelling on the "Duties of a Secre-
tary" Mr. Wilson, secretary of the,
Board of Commerce of Detroit, spoke
at the initial meeting of the Commerce
Club held at the Union Monday night
in his honor. The substance of his
talk revolved about the word "boost,"
which he pronounced first as the duty
of the public spirited man, who works
with a view to advancing the prosper-
ity of his home town.,
Especially sensational to the mem-
bers of the club was the disproval of
the rudimentary doctrine in economics
that a. town derives its prosperity
from the raw material at its immediate
"It is not true that a town's
prosperity grows out of the available
raw material at its disposal," said Mr.
Wilson. "Because Grand Rapids is in
the heart of the lumber region of Mich-
igan does not prove that the furniture
industry arose from this. Grand Rap-
ids' success in this industry is the out-i
come of the genius of its people.
Vanderbilt Professor Lectures Tonight,
Professor William L. Dudley, dean
of the medical department of Vander-

Twenty-five years of detective work
is the record of William J. Burns, who
will open the Students' Lecture asso-
ciation course, Monday night, in Uni-
versity Hall, on "Citizenship and Mu-
nicipal Graft." Of that long term of
service, twenty-two years were spent
in the United States service, which Mr.
Burns left for the presidency of the
national detective agency, which
bears his name. He is best known for
his brilliant work in the Oregon Land.
Fraud Cases, the San Francisco Mu-
nicipal Graft cases, and the Los An-'
geles Times dynamiting case, the lat-
ter now pending in the courts. When
one considers the wonderful success
that has accompanied his every effort,
it is little wonder that he is hailed as,
one of the men of the hour and a lead-
er in the ranks of secret service work-
ers, past and present.-
The free seat reservation for those
holding course tickets will take place
Saturday morning in University hall
from 9 to 12. In order to avoid any
waiting, numbers will be given out as
fast as asked for and holders of the
numbers can reserve their place with-
out the necessity of keeping in line.

a monster mass meeting in Collect

ball eleven, led by Coach McGugin,
leaves Thursday morning for Ann Ar-
bor where it meets the Wolverine team
team on Saturday. Vanderbilt stu-
dents showed by their enthusiasm that
they expect great things of the Com-
modores when they play Michigan in
their big game of the season.
Three of the Vanderbilt players par-
ticipate in the Michigan game know-
ing it is the last big game they will
ever play for the- southerners, and
Roy Morrison, Freeland and Metzger,
the three mentioned, are expected to{
play the game of their lives. The five
line men who will face Yost's prote-
ges are the same who played in the
memorable Yale game last year. The
Commodore backfield will be compos-
ed of Roy Morrison at quarter, Collins
and Hardage at the halves and Sikes
at full back. In this quartet McGugin
has the best set of backs that ever
represented Vanderbilt.
All of the Commodore players are in
fit physical trim and barring accident
the team should be in fine fettle when
the first whistle blows on Saturday.

In reply to an attack made by R. T.
Crane of Chicago through the medium
of pamphlets on the engineering de-
partment of the university. Many
members of the engineering depart-
ment expressed themselves forcibly.
"So far as architecture goes the
practicing architects today are send-
ing their sons to schools, believing
that in the future trained men will
lead. Experience has shown that these
men rise above men who have no tech-
nical training," said Prof. Emil Lorch.

Lorch added that there were not

C. Anderson, of the mechanical engi-
neering faculty stated: "It seems too
bad that Mr. Crane has to resort to
such tactics in order to advertise his
Prof. Anderson referred to articles
that appeared in the "Valve*World," a
publication issued by Mr. Crane's com-
pany as characteristic of Mr. Crane's
attitude to men receiving technical
training in universities.
"There seems to be more freshmen
being examined this year than usual,"
said Dr. May, physical director of the
gymnasium, "and just at present, prob-
ably because of the proximity of No-
vember 6, when all gym classes begin,
they are coming in about as fast as we
can handle them. Of course, it's too
early yet to give out statistics or com-
parisons, but the freshmen seem to
be above the average in most respects,;
and remarkably free from such de-
formities as weak or abnormal hearts.
We have set aside several charts
which compare very well with that ofl
Allan Garrell's, last year, and will se-
lect the one that is most perfect when
all the men have been' examined.'
