LACK OF UNDERSTANDING IS
CHIEF CAUSE OF TROUBLE
K. S. Ind, Former Michigan Honor
Orator, Tells of True Sentiments
Lack of understanding and selfish-
ness were the main reasons given by
K. S. Inui, '06, former Michigan orator,
for the dissension between the East
and West, in his reading on "America
vs. Japan" in University Hall, before
an appreciative audience last evening.
Mr. Inui developed his subject in an
interesting and logical manner, enliv-
ening it with touches of humor and
human experiences. Conflicting views,
the vast difference between the East
and West, exaggeration and suspicion,
were the four underlying reasons for
this misunderstanding, according to
Mr. Inui. He stated that never was
Japan so far from wanting war with
the United States, but on the contra-
ry had great confidence in America.
"The Japanese in America are bet-
tering themselves all the time," he
said, "and are trying to become good
citizens. If we went to war with you
it would be the weakening of one or
the other, and Japan is in no condition

Wlhichl They Rope to Make
The resolution, drawn up by the
fresh lit traditions committee, that ev-
ery freshman shall, from now on, greet
his classmates on the campus with the
words "howdy frosh," was enthusias-
tically received by fresh lits at their
class smoker at the Union last night.
The originators of the idea hope to
push the campaign through in such a
manner that a permanent campus tra-
dition will be established.
A committee, composed of Glen How-
land, Donald A. Finkbeiner, Willis D.
Nance, Harold F. Korn, Ward Harry-
man, Perry Holmes and John Parker,
was appointed to promote the move-
ment in every possible manner. This
committee will get in touch with the
freshman engineer class, and attempt
to gain its cooperation.
In line with this work creating class
unity among the freshmen, the tradi-
tion committee appointed at the be-
ginning of the year, made a report.
They have printed cards outlining the
most generally known traditions to be
observed by new comers, and distrib-
uted these at the smoker last evening.

TAN7O CAUSES TROUBLE IN
RANKS OF FORESTRY CLUB
Embryo Rangers Threaten to Bar
Dance From Program in Coming
Whether or not the tango shall be
admitted to the Forestry club dance
is causing worlds of trouble among
the would-be forest rangers. All are
agreed that they want a dance, but
whether it shall be "an honest-to-
goodness dance," as the straight two-
step and waltz advocates put it, or
whether the later steps shall be per-
mitted, is the all-vexing problem.
The club placed the problem before
the foresters at a recent meeting and
five spoke for, and five spoke against,
the tango, with the result that no ac-
tion was taken. However, now' the
supporters of the "straight two-step
and waltz dance" have petitions in the
field to overcome the strength of the
tango artists. Final judgment will
not be passed until the Forestry club

Michigan's chances. for developing
one, two and four mile teams for the
annual Penn relay games are said to
be the best in many seasons. Trainer
Farrell has all but one member of
last year's title-holding two-mile quar-
tet, and a wealth of younger material
to fill out the other teams.
Although "Hap" Haff, last year's
Wolverine leader, has been on the
Varsity track team for three years and
is not eligible for dual meets or the
intercollegiate championships, the star
quarter miler is eligible for, the relay
Haff finished for the two mile team
last spring, doing the half in a little
over 1:56, while Jansen, Brown and
Haimbaugh did nearly as well. Haim-
baugh is the only member of the team
not eligible this season, but as the 880
is a little out of the two miler's line,
it is anticipated that several suitable
youngsters can be found to take his
place. Carver, Griest, Ufer and Mur-
phy are all possibilities for the vacant
Quarter milers are about the scarc-
est article at Michigan this year, and
as a consequence both Haff and Jan-
sen, intercollegiate point winners in
the 440 last year, may be shifted to
the mile team, should one be taken
east. Lyttle and Lamey will likely
try for this team.
Trelfa, Fox, Richards,Brown,Young,
Watts, and Shapero are among the
most promising distance men from
which Farrell hopes to pick four mil-
ers who can again win the classic four
mile race,-in which Michigan holds the

"Going Down" was the subject of the

scribed the power of mental sugges-

the students won in duelling swords,

In the foils match, J. R. Hayden,

TO ELECT VARSITY
MANAGERS IN JUNE
Varsity baseball and track manag-
erial elections will be held the second
Saturday before the final examinations
in June hereafter, according to a
change in the athletic association con-
stitution, adopted at a meeting of the
board of directors yesterday after-
The matter of holding these elec-
tions in the spring, instead of in the
fall as heretofore, has been under con-
sideration for a week, and yesterday
met with the approval of the board
members. The action is taken as a
result of the recent agitation over the
disfranchisement of freshmen, as it is
felt that first 'year men will be well
qualified to vote for candidates for
these offices after a residence in the
university of over a semester, the
same as they are well qualified to vote
in the regular January elections.
The point was also raised that the
outgoing seniors will be able to vote
in the track and baseball elections if
they are held in the spring, and a more
representative vote can be obtained.
WILL TRY FOR CASH PRIZE
Five hundred dollars in cash has
been offered by the management of the
Princess theatre, of New York, for the
best one-act play written by any stu-
dent in several of the leading eastern
institutions specifically named in the
offer. The manager of the Comedy
club wrote yesterday, to New York, re-
questing that Michigan be included in
the offer. An answer is expected in a
Several of the students who sub-
mitted manuscripts in the competition
conducted by the Comedy club this
fall, have already signified their in-
tention of trying for the prize.
Daily Feature Used by Japaese Paper
"The Michigan Daily for Michigan"
series is being used by the Japanese
American, a Japanese newspaper pub-
lshed in San Francisco. .
"It taks the average English or
American child 1,000 hours more to
learn to spell than the average Ger-
man, and 1,500 hours more than the
average Italian child," was the state-
nent made yesterday by Mr. Henry
Gallup Paine, editor of the Simplified
Spelling Bulletin and office manager
of the Simplified Spelling Board. Mr.
Paine arrived in Ann Arbor Monday
and will leave tonight.
"The adoption of simplified spelling
in our schools," continued Mr. Paine,
"would shorten the school life of ev-
ery child from one to two years.
"There are three main arguments in
favor of the adoption of simplified
spelling. It is, first of all, a saver of
time and space, and, when taken in
the aggregate,.this is a matter of con-
siderable importance. In the second
place, it is the reasonable and scien-
tific way to spell. There is no reason
why spelling should not conform to the
rules of reason and logic as well as
mathematics. Finally, by shortening
the time necessary to learn a mere
tool to knowledge, more tim could be
spent on the acquiring of Aowledge
"At present we are trying only to
make spelling more uniform by apply-
ing the laws of analogy, and by drop-
ping silent letters. We want people
to get used to the appearance of words
spelled in this way. After all, the on-
ly test is intelligibility.
"More than 100 members of your
faculty, nearly 300 magazines and pub-
lications, and several college presi-
dents are converts to simplified spell-
ing, and the numbers are growing ev-
When asked whether the transition
would make much confusion, Mr.
Paine said, "There can be no more
confusion than we have now, and the
simple way will be no more confusing
than our present complicated system."
Mr. Paine, who is one of the fore-
most authorities' in the United States'
on this subject, is traveling in thei
middle west in the interests of the
Simplified Spelling Board. H will
leave for Chicago tonight.

formally opened this evening in the
trophy room of Waterman .gymnasium

The outlook for the All-Fresh track
team will be canvassed, and an at-

for the yearling squad.
In addition to the handicap inter-
