During the Michigan team's brief

Dr. Foldes, member of the Hungari-
an fencing team which won the Olym-

at present a practicing surgeon in
Grand Rapids, spent the afternoon last
Saturday, advising the foilers in the

Foldes is recognized as one of the lead-

The basketball championship of the
campus will be decided between the
senior engineers and the junior lits at'
7:30 o'clock tonight, in Waterman
gymnasium.
The strength of the engineers at cen-
ter, and the weakness of the lits in
that position, coupled with one more
year of team play, makes the dope ap-
pear in favor of the near grads.
EIGHT WEEK "DEAD" COURSE
ALLOWS STATE CERTIFICATE'
Pamphlets to the number of 10,000
announcing the continuance of the
course in embalming as a part of the
curriculum of the university's summer
school are now being mailed out by
clerks in the office of Acting Dean E.
H. Kraus. This is the course In
which three students were enrolled
last summer and which the faculty of
the school determined to retain only,
after a lengthy debate.
This course is the only one of its
kind in the country and it is expected
that the enlarged scope of the publici-
ty which is being given it will greatly
increase the enrollment. Students,
meeting the requirements of the eight
weeks' course are recognized by the
state board of health as licensed em-
balmers and are given a state certifi-
cate.

s.)

As a member of the senior law
class, I wish to offer a few remarks in
reference to the class memorial. At
a meeting of the class last Tuesday
the class by a vote of 27 to 5 passed
a resolution not to have a class memo-
rial. The meeting was regular in ev-
ery respect. That action gave you
an opportunity to proclaim far and
wide that the senior law class had
taken drastic measures, and to pic-
ture every man who voted against
that measure, or should ever vote
against it, or acquiesce in that vote
as selfish, as breakers of traditions,
poverty stricken unloyal as Michigan
men, destitue of love, appreciation, or
sympathy. So disastrous is it "to
write, and not be read," so read, "the
time for a Michigan man to aid his
university is at the present,-the man
wbo is unwilling to give now will al-
ways be unwilling to give. Is this the
mere momentary ascendancy of self-
ishness? Is there no love, no appre-
ciation, no sympathy in the senior law
class? The answer is the memorial."
In other words The Michigan Daily
says to the senior law class, if you
.do not leave a memorial, you are

A personal supervision com-
mittee, composed of ten men
and ten women of the soph lit
class, has been appointed, to take up-
on itself the responsibility of furnish-
ing partners to all dancers at the soph
lit re-acquaintance "Punch Dansant"
party, scheduled for next Saturday af-
ternoon at Barbour gymnasium. The
women of the class are being urged to
come unescorted, and an attempt will
be made to make the affair as informal
as possible.
ERIE CLUB WILL ADVERTISE-
UNIVERSITY IN HOME TOWN
The Erie club, at its last meeting,
outlined plans for advertising Michi-
gan among the high school students of
Erie, Pa., during the Easter vacation.
A banquet will be given in honor of
the seniors in the high schools, at
which prominent Michigan alumni of
Erie twill speak. Besides this, stere-
optican views of the university will be
shown at the high school entertain-
ments during vacation week.

Belgium. I
Sore Throat Epidemic Under Check
No new cases were reported at the
office of the university health service
yesterday. Dr. Cummings, head of the
service believes that the epidemic has
been checked. ,

Decisive action on the reorganization
problem may be taken by the student
council tonight, after hearing the re-
port of the committee appointed to
codify the various plans for reforma-
tion. The question of changing the
date of cap night from May 29 to May
22, as requested by the athletic asso-
ciation, tohelp entertain the interscho-
lastic visitors, will also be discussed.
NEW SCIENCE BUILDING TO
BE EQUIPPED FOR "MOVIES"
The plans for the new science build-
ing include the installation of apparat-
us that will make possible the pre-
sentation of moving picture films. Ar-
rangements will also be made for the
development and preparation of such
films.

ings if the auditing board accepts the

en under the auspices of the Union
