Freshman History (lass to Give Plan
-First Trial This Morning.
The mid-semester examination in
English history under Prof. E. R. Tur-
ner, will be held .this morning under
the newly organized "honor system."
This system was adopted last Thurs-
day after two weeks' consideration by
the members of the class. It provides
that the students shall certify on the
blue book, that he has neither given
nor received help on the examination,
and shall sign his name to this effect.
The vote on this phase of the sys-
tem was nearly unanimous, only 12
out of the class of about 360 voting
against it. Another phase, providing
that every student shall report to the
committee, any other preson whom he
sees obtaining help, will be taken up
by the class at a later period, and stu-
dent opinions upon it will be given.

Uihersity of lIichigan Aspirant sFor
Scholarship Awards, Fail to
Qualify, According to1
- Oxford Dispatches.

Five Candidates Chioseu, From Whom
Board Will Select State
Hope College, of Holland, Michigan,
placed two men on the list of eligibles
for the 1913 Rhodes scholarship
award, while all of the University of
Michigan aspirants failed to qualify,
according to the announcement of win-
ners received yesterday from the Ox-
ford University authorities by Presi-
dent Harry B. Hutchins.
Alma College placed one student,
Hillsdale College another,and- the Uni-
versity of Detroit furnished the last
of five men from whom the winner of
the coveted prize will be selected. The
following is the list as given out yes-
terday: R. Kroodsma, Zeeland,. Hope
College; W. F. Rennie, Hillsdale Col-
lege; L. Hekhuis, Holland, Hope Col-
lege; S. P. Cook, Alma, Alma Col-
lege; and F. J. Kennedy, Detroit; Uni-
versity of Detroit.
From this list, to which any eligible
men of those who have passed the ex-
aminations in previous years may be
added, will be chosen the man who
will receive the Rhodes scholarship
for the state of Michigan. Selection is
to be made by a board consisting of
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court
James H. Steer, President Harry B.
Hutchins, Dean John R. Effinger, Pres-
ident B. W. Anthony, of Adrian Col-
lege, and President Samuel W. Dickey,
of Albion College. The meeting of
this board for the purpose of making
the award will be held probably some
time in December.
According to the communication
coming from the authorities at Oxford
University, where the examination pa-
pers were sent for correction, the
winner may be chosen from all those,
eligible, each one having an even
chance so far as the scholastic re-
quirements are concerned. The man
who will ultimately be chosen will ,be
tested according to his popularity as
a student and man, as well as to his
ability in athletics and in other colle-
giate activities.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
The "canny Scotchman,"," who, af-
ter the habit of his folk, has been
abroad, thanks you for your editorial
leader of November 21. 1 need not
rouble you even with "interesting con-
victions." But, 1 may say this. Foot-
loose, at last, from the Conference and

its dropsical laws, we can reconsider
our eligibility rules. For,-as I am in-
formed,the eastern institutions- have
moved. And, l,.for one, would cry con-
tent were the Yale regulations to -be
adopted. I undestand that they are set
forth in a single sentence. Any." stu-

Eva Tanguay was sitting on a big
trunk at the side of the Whitney thea-
tre yesterday afternoon, swinging her
feet over the edge. Johnny Ford was
there, her leading man, and so was
her favorite bull dog, but little did
they wot that in the background there
lurked no less a one than Cupid suc-
cessfully disguised as a stage hand,
masked in a-week's growth, who wres-
tled trunks the while. And across the
street, the tempter, hung in the guise
of a shingle, two by twice, and labelled
"Justice of the Peace."
"Eva," said Johnny, "do you see that
sign?" She saw it.
"Eventually," he said, "why not
She demurred; then she said, "All
right. Come on."
In the middle of the street she stop-
ped. "I don't want to get married,"
she said, and ran back to her place of
refuge on the trunk. Then sb chang-
d her mind,-a peculiar thing to do,-
and this time they got into the office.
"Have you a license?" asked the jus-
tice. Alas, love is not only blind but
absent minded.
"I'll get the license," said Ford, "yod
wait here," but Eva remembered that
she must dress soon for, the matinee,!
and she wanted to think it over before
she got married anyway. - She had
never been married before and she
didn't want to do anything foolish.
"Never mind," said Ford, "I'll get
the license and we can think it.over
afterwards," so he went across the:
street to the court house and County.
Clerk Beckwith fixed him up with'a
1913 model,and all the newest fixtures.

tirely allayed and the ceremony pro-.

After last evening's performance Mr..
Ford said, "You may be sure we are
the two happiest people in the world.
This even will not change our plans in
the least and next year we expect to
be back here in a big musical comedy."
Miss Tanguay said, "We have been

Editor,Thel Michigan Daily:-
In all the discussion of the 'riot fol-
lowfing the Pennsylvania game no one
has pointed out that Mayor R. G. Mc-
Kenzie was partially responsible for
the disorder.,'
At the last meeting before the Penn-
sylvania game the student council ex-
pressed itself in favor of closing the
saloons at 6:00 o'clock on November
15. On the morning of that day, in
company with another student I in-
terviewed the mayor, and requestedq
him to close the saloons at 6:00
o'clock. We pointed out that drunken
students had frequently disgraced the
university in. the past in downtown
celebrations, after big games. We
maintained that most of these stu-
dents usually became intoxicated. by
drinking In the saloons from 6:00 t
8:30 o'clock in the evening.
The mayor refused to close the sa-
loons until the actual outbreak of dis-
order, maintaining that the people of
the city had voted for saloons,: and
should not be denied the privilege of
using them because of the weakness
of certain students. As a result of
this action several students became in-
toxicated by drinking at the saloons
between 7:00 and 8:00 o'clock. The
