The question for the annual Cup
Debate selected by the Oratory board
this year is: Resolved, "That immigra-
tion should be further restricted."
Inter-society preliminaries will be
held on April 16 between Webster and
Alpha Nu, and on April 17, between
Adelphi and Jeffersonian. The final
contest between the winners of the
inter-society debates will be held
May 8.
The cup, presented to the Oratorical
association by the Detroit Alumni as-
sociation in 1898', will be awarded to
the society securing the most victor-
ies in 20 years of annual contests. In
the 15 contests that have taken place,
Adelphi has won eight times, Webster
six times, and Jeffersonian once.
Students who have previously won
a university honor in debate or who
have been members of a winning cup
team are not eligible to compete.
A book, entitled, "The Americans in
the Philippines," by the late James A.
LeRoy, '96, has recently been pub-
lished. The introduction is written
by the Hon. Wifliam H. Taft, and the
book is the first authoritative account
of the first years of the American oc-
cupation of the islands.
Mr. LeRoy, who died not long ago,
was secretary of the Philippine com-

The University of Michigan Obser-
vatory is one of the 25 or 30 observa-
tories in this country receiving the
Astronomers' Telegraph service. This
service is sent out from two centers:
one in this country, at the Harvard
Observatory, and one in Europe, at
Kiel, Germany.
If anything of startling noment is
discovered by an astronomer in any
part of the world, it is immediately
telegraphed to either of these two
stations. They distribute it to the
various observatories by wire.
An interesting example of the speed
and dispatch of this servce was the
notification of the Michigan Observa-
tory of the re-discovery of the West-
phal Comet by Paul T. Delavan, '12, a
member of Profess or W. J. IHu ssey's
party in South America. The tele-
graph service brought word of Dela-
van's discovery the day after it was
made, while Professor R. 11. Curtiss
had to wait a full month before he
received the details by letter from
Professor -lHussey in South America.
If the discovery is not of sufticient
importance to require a iessage by
telegraph, it is published in a pamph-
let which are ent to the various ob-
servatories at differm.nt intervals.

A mrked (lerease in the enrollment
in the law department has been preva-J
lent during the last two years. The
added requirement of one year of
literary work is given as the cause
for the diminished registration.
The department's enrollment for
1912 was 605, 178 of which were fresh-
men, 34 being lit-law students. In
1913, the attendance fell to 553, 212
being members of the freshman class
and including 40 lit-laws. With the
inauguration of the two year require-
ment in 1915, it is expected another
decided decrease will prevail.
The largest enrollment the law de-
partment ever had, numbered about
850 and it is not expected that this
standard will be. reached for some

According to Dr. May's Records This
Year's Freshmen Are Slightly
Below Par.
Dancing the tango and the wearing
of low healed shoes seems to be the
only explanation for the prevalence
of flat footed freshmen this year, as
shown by the annual statistics com-
piled by Dr. Geo. May, director of
Waterman gymnasium. The records
show that 19 per cent of the young-
sters are afflicted with the flattened
pedals as compared with 13 per cent
last year.

hold on the yearlings by a slight per-

freshmen are nearly on a par with
those of last year. The average of both
classes was found to be 19.1 years;
the height 'has shrunk from 67.9 to
67.8 inches; and the weight increased
from 139.6 to 139.9 pounds.'
Among this year's men there are 16
who are colorblind; 282 who use glas-
ses; 84 with defective hearing; 138
with irregular hearts; 30 enlarged
hearts; 71 with adenoids; 127 with en-

Genera1Discussion of Socialism 111l1
Follow Speeches at Next
Regular Meeting.
The Michigan Socialist club will
hold its first semi-monthly program
in Newberry hall, Wednesday evening,
December 17, at 8:00 o'clock. The
program will include speeches by
Louis C. Reimann, '15, Melvin E. Case,
'15E, Ralph C. Warren, '14, and Fred
0. Bishop, '15E. A general discus-
sion by members on the problem of
socialism will follow.
The Michigan Socialist club is the
local chapter of the Intercollegiate
Social society, which is represented in
more than fifty colleges and univer-
sities in this country; the aim of
which is the comprehensive study of
modern social, industrial and politi-
cal problems.
Beginning in February, there will
be a lecture course of five numbers,
which will be opened by Dr. Frank
rohn of Chicago. Dr. Bohn, who has
spoken here every year for the last
four years, is a graduate of Columbia
University, and received his doctor's
degree from Michigan in 1904.
A tentative list of the speakers to
follow later in the year has been pre-
pared. Among these are Alexander
Irvine of Stanford, Conn., and George
R. Kirkpatrick of Lafayette,' Ohio, who
is the author of the popular book,
"War-What For?" Other speakers
are Charles Edward Russell, of Wash-
ington, D. C., and Allen L. Benson, of
New York City.

for this class, and several others have
