Fresh lits will give their acquain-1

a smoker to be held tomorrow night
at 7:30. The plan is to broaden the
acquaintanceship of every member ofl
the class by starting the custom of
all wearers of the grey toque speaingI
to each other on the campus.
The list of speakers for the occa-
sion includes Dean J. Robert Effinger,j
Junior Professor Robert D. Hender-l
son, Mr. Lyman L. Bryson, and Dr.1
G. A. May. All members of the liter-I
ary faculty are invited to attend. Ad-I
mission will be free, and the commit-
tee has arranged for a liberal distri-
bution of "Durham," "Missouri Meer-1
schaums" and "Fats."
Plates bearing . the name's of the
donors, have been attached to the
chairs in the Union dance hall. Last
spring a subscription was started to
procure some new chairs for the ad-
dition to the Union, and over 2001
members took advantage of the op-
portunity. It has been decided to
start a similar list this year, and any
Union member may present a chair
by subscribing $2.00, the Union to pay
the balance of the cost. The nameI
and class of each donor will be en-
graved on a nameplate and attached
to the chair.

That the probable influx of one
thousand working students at Mich-
igan will be a desirable factor on the
campus is the opinion of the several
faculty members.
The campaign committee of the
working students is at present can-
vassing the attitude of the entire fac-
ulty, in regard to the erection of a
factory, which will furnish work to
students, 4uring odd hours. This
committee belie.(es that the establish-
ment of the factory will add 1,000
working studenis to the Michigan en-
rollmient. it will also co-operate with
the Mkhigan Union and the Univer-
sity Y. M. C. A. in bettering the san-
itary conditions of the boarding houses
and eating clubs, and set a rule relat-
ing to appropriate compensation of
student workers.
The existence of the committee, and
the steps taken by the body are the
direct result of the agitation created
by the student workingmen, who sent
out 2,000 circulars, early in Novem-
ber, condemning the environments of
the boarding house facilities. A mass
meeting was held on November 7,
when representative boarding house
proprietors, working students, and
employment secretaries -gathered to-
gether, and a committee to further the
betterment of conditions, was appoint-
ed, consisting of Messrs. Horace G.
Prettyman, proprietor of the Pretty-
man boarding houses, C. C. Freeman,
proprietor of the Freeman and Chubb
houses, Frank Olmstead, secretary of
the Y. MI C. A. employment bureau,
Carl Guthe, secretary of the Union
employment bureau, and Dr. William
Moriarty of the engineering depart-
Since the investigation of several
cafes by the committee, conditions in
the boarding house kitchens, have
been improving.
The health service of the university
has also promised to lend its aid in
improving the circumstances.

Tiemblers of Triangle Society Pledge
T heir Sucpport to Rtesol ltiolls
For Itnprovement.
The Engineers' club, until last year
one of the strongest organizations on
the campus, will be rejuvinated and
the membership increased two-fold,
if the plan of the Triangles, the junior
engineering society, is carried out. At
a meeting of the executive board of
this club held Tuesday night, resolu-
tions were drawn up to be presented
before the next meeting in which the
members of the Triangles pledge their
support to the Engineering society.
The Vulcans, and Web and Flange,
the senior engineering societies, have
not as yet drawn up resolutions or
formulated any plans for their part
in the membership campaign, but it is
thought that they are strongly in favor
of the continuing of the Engineering
society and resolutions will probably
be presented at their next ergular
In the past years the Engineering
society enjoyed the distinction of be-
ing one of the most popular clubs in
the engineering department. Two
years ago their membership was
around the 300 mark but so far this
year only about 200 engineers have
affiliated with the society. It is the
intention of the leaders of the club to
increase this membership to at least
Freshmen are eligible to the society
ranks, and it is expected that a num-
ber of the better students among the
fresh engineers will join the club. As
inducements the club offers a meeting
placeinthe Engineering building. They
have well-furnished club rooms and
an excellent reference library and also
have on file all the leading technical
papers publishd.
Definite arrangements concerning
the campaign for new mmbers will
be announced soon.
New rules, to be enforced in the
rhetoric library, in West hall, have
been drawn up, stating that books may
be drawn out for over night use, be-
tween 4:00 and 5:00 o'clock, except
Saturdays, when the hour has been
aet at 11:00 to 12:00 o'clockh.. The r --

Prof. M. Levi, of the French faculty,
will open the Cercle Francais course
with a lecture in French on "Le
Theatre de Maurice Maeterink" in
Tappan hall, at 5:00 o'clock, Ttes-
day afternoon. The lecture will be
a , discussion of the author's early
plays, including "Pelleas et Melis-
ande" and the three plays for marion-
Prof. Levi will attempt to charac-
terize each of the eight plays written
before 1895. The lecturer will dwell
on the elements of romanticism, mys-
ticism, and fatalism which are found
in this period of the author's work.
IFe will also comment ou the psych-
ology of the personage in the plays.
Everything tending to the health
and comfort of the students attend-
ing the summer military camps, which
is lawfully allowed, will be provided
by the government. A hospital corps
will be in attendance, and regular
outings and fishing trips will be
The committee in charge demands
that good drinking water be adjacent
to the camp, and provides for regular
army cooking and baking facilities.
Cots, biankets, tentaige and a com-
plete infantry equipment is furnished
each studlent.
Rifle contests, for which the Na-
tional Rifle . association will offer
prizes, and swimming contests to in-
struct in life saving will be offered
as lighter phases of the work in camp.
Canoe and boat racing will be made
a feature, as will tennis courts, if
the camp grounds permit.
Fifteen secretaries of the commer-
cial and civic organizations through-
out the state of Michigan will attend
the seventh anniversary of the Corda-
Fratres Cosmopolitan club at a ban-
quet to be held at the Union, on Janu-
ary 13, at 8:00 o'clock. A speaker of
international repute in the movement
will be secured; and the president and
the deans of the several departments
will be guests of honor. More than
200 are expected to be present at the
The commercial secretaries of the

University, of England, is consider-
ing sending a team.
No foreign team in the relay cham-
pionship, or athletes representing col-
leges of other nations in the indi-

vidual events, have ever competed at
the annual Philadelphia meeting.
While the presence of the British
quartet is not yet a certainty, the
Pennsylvania authorities are in cor-
respondence with those at the British
university, which opened the matter.
Oxford would send either a two or
four mile relay team, which is of
interest to Michigan since the record
in both events is held by Maize and
Blue teams.
turn of such books must be made be-
fore 9:00 o'clock of the day following
their drawing . If this latter rule is
not complied with, all privileges of
the library will be taken away from
the offender.
At present the library contains near-
ly a thousand books and more are
being added daily. The use of this
room, located on the second floor of
West hall, is privileged to all stu-
dents during the hours between 8:00
I ;nd 5:00 o'c:lock.

The crane house and the three and
one-half ton girders for the travel-
ing bridge of the coal moving crane,
at the new power house, have arrived.
These girders will span the 20 foot
space between the power house and
the track support to the west of the
building, and will be set up on legs
17 feet above the top of the support,
giving a total height of 70 feet. The
additional height is necessiated by
the fact that the crane will clear the
top of the ash collector, which ex-
tends above the top of the building.
As the coal comes in on the tracks
below, it is picked up by the crane,
dropped into a crusher on one end of
the traveling bridge, then slides down
through any one of 15 or 20 hatches
located on the roof of the building,
and falls into a parabolic receptacle
extending over the tops of the fur-
naces. From these receptacles the
coal is let out as needed.
Bunkers are provided 16 feet be-
neath the railroad tracks to accom-
modate the surplus coal not ready to
be consumed upon arrival, while, in
case of a coal famine or any other
emergency, the entire 20 foot space
between the main building and the
west track support may be utilized
for storage purposes.
No saving in coal consumption is.
expected to be brought about by the
new system, because of the fact that
heavier demands will be made upon
it than upon the old one, and, in the
opinion of Superintendent of Grounds,
Marks, the observatory and the hos-
pital will, in the future, most likely
receive their heat supply also from
the central plant. Approximately
15,000 tons of coal are consumed per

Interest in Spanish is constantly

university, according to stati:
compiled by Prof. C. P. Wagner.
canvass of students shows that
majority take Spanish because
hope to make practical use of it.
In the first semester of 1904
1909-10, and 1913-14, the numbe
students in all Spanish courses in
literary department was 27, 133,
126, respectively. The falling
since 1909 was caused by ma
course 1 a four hour course, and
by the increase of technical cou
in the forestry course, so that fo
ters can no longer take Spanish.

all students in forestry, as it i
present to students of business
ministration and engineering.
Students say they take these c
