Members o Senior
Beginning Friday and c ntinuing Political dissension is again rife on
through Sunday the Michigan Union,
will wage a second house to house
canvass for members. Ann Arbor has
been divided into four districts and
forty-five men have been appointed to
bring the Union before every man in
"Our first campaign was far from a
failure, but we are not yet satisfied]
with the number of men in the Union,",
said President Blish last night. "I be-}
lieve that another campaign will add
a considerable number to our list.
There are hundreds of men who have
not joined the Union yet, simply be-
cause its purposes and meaning have
not been explained to them. We hope
to reach every man in this campaign,
and to put before him the Union and
Robert Tipping has been appointed
general chairman. A sub-chairman
will be placed over each of the four
city districts. - Ten men have been as-
signed to each sub-chairman. Every
canvasser Will be supplied with a copy
of the recent issue of the Alumnus
which was dedicated to ,the Michigan
Union, and with circulars relative to
the present club house and the one
planned for the future.
There will be a general meeting of
the committees at. the Union Thurs-
day evening from 7:30 to 9:00 o'clock
for a smoker and a discussion of plans
for the campaign. At this time Mat-
thew Blish, Homer Heath and Robert
Tipping will give short talks.
Dean Hinsdale Begins Lecture Series.
Beginning this evening Dean .Hins-
dale of the homeop department will
deliver a series of Monday evening
lectures upon subjects which will be
of interest to lay as well as profes-
sional men. The lectures will be open
American Chemical Society Meets.
The University of Michigan section
of the American Chemical Society will
meet this afternoon at 4:30 in room,
303 of the Chemical building. Dr. S.
C. Lind will read a paper on "The
Chemists' Interest in Radioactivity."
the campus. This time insurgency
has broken forth among the seniorj
dents as a result of last Saturday's
election. A petition is now being cir-
culated among the independents of
the class which, according to present1
plans, will be presented to the Student
Council in a day or two.
According to the testimony of the
rebelling members, most of them were
unable to attend the meeting at which
the nominations were made, and there-
fore did not get several of the men of
their choice up for office; in particu-
lar their presidential candidate. When
they presented their 'candidates by'
petition to the election board last
Wednesday afternoon, they were in-
formed that they were too late, the
ballots having been already printed.
This is their first ground for protest,
it being provided by the Student Coun-
cil general election rules that petitions
may be presented until Thursday. The
attention of C. I. Wood, the Student
Councilman in charge of the election,
was called to the fact that there were
candidates on petition, and under his
order the names were written out on
the ballots during the early part of
the election hours. The insurgers
,claim, however, that they were illeg-
ibly and improperly written. This is
denied by the leaders of the success-
ful faction, and countercharges of
electioneering and illegal voting are
made by them..
When seen yesterday neither the suc-
cessful nor defeated presidential can-
didate would talk in regard to the
matter, stating that they thought the
whole thing had been dropped.
"There was considerable contention
at the election," said Student Coun-
cilman Wood. "Objection was made
to those who had not paid their class
dues, but they paid their assessments
and voted. When the election was
over it was understood that everyone
was satisfied. I did not know that any
protest was being considered."
President Hutchins Visits Detroit.
President Hutchins was in Detroit
yesterday on University business. He
returned on a late train last night.
