SENI)S NOTICES TO PARENTS
OF DELINQUENT FRESHMEN
Notifications of probations of fresh-
men were mailed yesterday to the par-
ents of the delinquent 1917 students
in accordance with the regulations o
the lit department, which provide that
the parents, of entering students be-
hind in their work, shall be notified
just previous to the annual Christmas
As a result of the warnings sent out,
several freshmen may be missing when
classes are re-assembled following the
holidays. In former years, it has been
customary to mail the warnings to the
parents two or three weeks previous
to the closing of school for the holi-
days, but this year, the letters were
sent out, so that they will reach tl: l
parents at about the same time as the
students arrive home, themselves.

The faculty of the department ha.
ever kept before it the necessity of
keeping in touch with actual develop-
ments in the field of law, commerce
and industry, but it has also felt that
the truest way to be practical wa
first to find and teach a true theory of
law rather than to merely train menr
in the mechanical features of the worl
of practice. Its policy has been fur-
ther developed in an effort to impress
upon students such views of the natur:
of society and the necessity of a bod3
of law which shall serve its needs any
not cramp its growing civilization.
The present faculty, of which Prof
Henry M. Bates, '90, is dean, consist
of 17 professors of law, two of the lit-
erary department faculty, and ten lec-
turers. Of this number, 15 are grad-
uates of the law school and severa"
possess a nation wide reputation. Dear
Henry M. Bates, who is at present
Tappan professor of law, is also presi-
dent of the Association of Americar
Law Schools, a position which he ha,
held since the fall of 1911.
During the 54 years of its-existence
the law school has graduated about
7,260 students. More than 10 per cen
of the present federal judges are grad
uates of the Michigan law school. Ou'
of 192 judges in all but one of the
branches of the judiciary system, 2'
received their degrees at Michigan.
On the benches of the state supremn
courts, the Michigan law departmen
has been represented by 20 graduates
Many others have held judiciary posi-
tions on the benches of the lower state
courts. Michigan law graduates arc
en the benches of 28 out of the 48 stat-
es. Most of the unrepresented stater
are in New England and the south.
The Michigan law school possesses
one of the best law libraries in thE
country, there being more than 35,00(
hound volumes. But it is in the prac
tice court that Michigan excels. The
Michitan practice court is generall3
regarded as the best and highest de-
veloped in the world. Professor Pound
of Harvard and Professor. Ballentin
of Wisconsin, at the last meeting of
