Picture Displays Female Scarecrow;
I. B. Jewell and C. Smith
Get Awards.
John M. Cottrell, '14A, was last
night awarded the first prize of $5.00
in the Comedy club poster contest. J.
B. Jewell, '16E, was awarded second,
and C. Smith, '17, third prize. These
pcsters will be placed on exhibition to-
day. A total of 16 drawings were sub-
mitted in the -competition.
The posters are to advertise the
play "Scarecrow" which the Comedy
eub will present at the Whitney the-
atre on January 16. Cottrell's draw-
ing departs from the commonplace and
displays a female scarecrow, urging
the destruction of the large supply of
admission cards. The Jewell poster is
a Cerran representation of a scare-
crow and Smith's picture is a spooky
affair, introducing several phases of
inanimate life.
The pr:zes for the second and third
places are four, and two, of the best
seats in the house, respectively.
Chinese students in the university,
through the arrangement of the uni-
versity Y. M. C. A., will be enabled to
spend their Christmas vacation in
some American families. Groups of
two or three will be distributed among
the local residents who have consented
to take charge of the orientals. They
may stay in the families during the
entire vacation or part of the holidays.
The purpose of this arrangement is to
enable the students to have a real in-
sight of American home life at Christ-
mas time; and that the Americans may
in turn learn the manners and customs
of China.

A great majority of the graduates go
into the United States Forestry Ser-
vice. The men enter the service either
as forest assistan's or forest rangers,
and from these positions they are eli-
gible to be deputy forest supervisors
and forest supervisors, who are each in
charge of one of the national forests.
Several of the graduates have enter-
ed the anadian Forest Service, and
some are in the employ of the Canadi-
an railroads. Others have forestry po-
sitions under the state governments.
A few have become foresters in the
government service in the Philippines,
and some are teaching.
A great number of graduates each
year is entering the employ of private
firms. Among this list are experts in
the valuation of timber lands, and
some who are themselves engaged in
the lumber or milling business.
Professor Roth first came into na-
tional prominence as an associate of
Dr. B. E. Fernow, the head of the
United States Division of Forestry
when it was first established. Later
Professor Roth was made Chief of the
Forestry Division of the General Land
Office, a position which placed him in
charge of all lands set aside as forest
reserves. Doctor Fernow and Profes-
sor Roth went to the Cornell Forestry
School when it was founded, but later
when the school broke up because of
politics, Doctor Fernow associated
himself with the University of Toron-
to, and Professor Roth came to Michi-
gan to found the present School of
Forestry. Junior Professor C. L.
Sponsler, '10; Assistant Professor P.
S. Lovejoy, '07; and Instructor J. H.
Pottinger, '12, are also Michigan grad-
Several graduates of the forestry
school are on the faculties of other
universities: Ngan Han, '11, the only
Chinese graduate in the department,
who is in the University of Nanking,
and is also in the service of the Chin-
ese government; D. M. Mathews, '09,
professor of forestry at Manilla; F. B.
Moddy, '06, professor of forestry at
Cornell University; G. W. Peavy, '04,
in the Agricultural College of Oregon;
N. W. Scherer, '11, assistant professor
at Ohio State University; and G. R.
Green, '11, assistant professor at Penn
State University.
Clyde Leavitt, '04, is the forester to
the Canadian Conservation, which has
full power over all forest fire protec-
tion on Canadian railroads. Dorr
Skeels is a logging engineer in the
United States Forest Service. When
timber land is to be sold, his duty is
to ascertain the best way for logging,
and also to fix the stumpage value, the7
price for which the lumber is sold.
C. S. Smith, '05, is assistant forester1

Snow is falling, at least a kind of
golden snow; sheckel after sheckel;
the kind that warms pocketbooks as
well as hearts. Filtering through the
halls of the rhetoric building, this yel-
low dust is drifting toward Charles
Stevens, the janitor, who yesterday
fell heir to a third of an estate valued
at $60,000, which his uncle of New
York city bequeathed him. Mr. Stev-
ens himself scouts the idea of such a
large fortune.

$6,000 or $7,000 at the very most," he
said when questioned. "My son is now

The game of soccer is played in
more countries than any other sport.
For this reason, most of the Michigan
soccerists have played the game since
childhood and the introduction of the
game here was most welcome to them.
The representative team last fall
was composed of players from eight
different countries. There were two
men each from South Africa and
China and one man each from Cana-
da, Holland, Greece, Norway, and the
United States, besides many foreign-
ers on the squad who failed to make
the team.
It was decided recently by the board
of directors to award numerals to the
soccer team, and the following men
will receive the insignia: Glenny, '14,

There will be n Junior Hop this
year, according to the resolution pass-
ed by the senate l-:st night. The res-
olution says nothing about prohibiting
a Hop next year. It is stated as im-
probable that any function similar to
the annual dance will be given with-
out official sanction. All the various
committees representing students are
disposed to abide by the decision of
the senate.
The annual Junior Hop was abolish-
ed by a resolution of the Senate on
Pebruary 14, after it had been a con-
tinuous Michigan institution for almost
40 years. It was stated that the sen-
timent of the Senate at that time was
that the Hop had grown to a size which
made it unmanageable and too elabo-
rate, and that it had Qutgrown that
simplicity, desirable for a university
function. Another reason assigned
was that it was undemocratic and too
exclusive. The abolition of the Hop
was precipitated by the riotous at-
tempt of about ^ hundred students andy
others to force admission to the gym-
nasium while the festivities were go-
ing on, and by the freaky character
of the dancing, costumes, and music,a
and because it was felt that the Hop
was the occasion of too much extrav-
Immediately after the action of the,
Senate last year, the 1914 Hop com-
mittee set to work in an endeavor to;
have the hop reinstated. It investigat-
ed the causes leading up to the aboli-
tion of the Hop, and devised plans toa
obviate the objections. The committee
made its recommendations this yearI
on the idea that the undemocratic anda
exclusive features were the cause of
the dissatisfaction with the annualc
ball. All those who had seen the peti-
tion were agreed that its provisions
were liberal.
The 1914 committee planned to make
the hop open to all students on equal
terms by permitting attendance of any
group of 'ten or more, other than the
18 fraternities which have been the
nucleus of the annual organization in
control of the great social event. Each1
group was to have uniform booth
space and a representative on the
general committee. Both gymnasiums
were to be used for dancing, if nee-]
essary. The general chairman was1
to help independents to organize in1
groups. Chairmanship of committees
and the general chairmanship were toi
be held in rotation from year to yearE
among the 18 fraternities, but assist-1
ants were to be appointed from the1
general committee.
House parties were to be limited to
begin Thursday noon and to end Sun-
day evening.
To provide more direct and more ef-
ficient management on the night of the
Hop, a senior or post-graduate was to
be elected to have full charge of the
Hop, while it was in progress. <
The names of all chaperones were to
be given to the chairman on chaper-
ones a week before the Hop and he
was to write to them, in conjunction
with Dean Myra B. Jordan, explain-
ing the situation in Ann Arbor and
what was expected of the chaperones.

The committee on costumes is con-
sulting plates of over 200 costumes
to be used in the staging of the his-

many special costumes will have to b

the purpose of determining the safety

Professor Sadler has been appointed
by the Secretary of Commerce to a.
membership on the commission which
is to hold a convention in Europe in
the spring of 1914, to determine the

A telegram to Director P. G. Ba
me of the Michigan athletic assc

treasurer of the Harvard athletic
sociation, practically settles the sc
uling of the game. Though the
test must be sanctioned by th I

is little reason to doubt the fint
of the arrangement.
