ibrary, in the form of a copy of

About 700 of the 2600 shrubs to be
used in the beautification of the cam-
pus arrived last week.nA number of
them were immediately placed in the
beds. The other plants are expected
to reach Ann Arbor some time next
week, and will be planted upon arrival.
The majority of the beds have been
placed at the intersections of the
walks, and the work of filling them
with new soil has been completed.
The shrubs will be arranged to pro-
vide shady spots, and also to allow
vistas through the campus. Many off
the plants are of the common flower-

ing varities, and some have been se-
cured which will blossom during the
May Festival time.
All of the beds between memorial
hall and university hall will be finish-
ed this spring. During the summer
the work of beautification will be con-
tinued, and the remaining beds be-,
tween university hall and. the law
building will be dug. The shrubs will
be planted in them in the fall. It is
expected that four years will be re-
quired to mature the system.
Offers Positions to Senior Chemists.
Mr. Benjamin L. Murray, head chem-
ist for Merck and Company, of New
York City, who was in Ann Arbor last
week, offered permanent positions to
several of the seniors of the chemistry
department, for next year. Merck and
Company have many Michigan chem-
istry and pharmacy graduates working
in their laboratories.

-Mr. Roy W. Cowden, of the rhetoric
department, has formed a new section
in rhetoric, selecting students from
among his freshman sections who
show marked ability in writing fiction.
The section meets once a week at the
home of Mr. Cowden. Students mak-
ing up this section are excused from
the regular rhetoric work.
-Prof. J. S. Reeves of the department
of political science, who is in Washing-
ton, D. C., attending a meeting of the
American Society of International
Law, is expected to return to Ann Ar-
bor today.
-Prof. R. W. Hegner, of the zoology
department, has contributed an article
on the "Germ Cells of Parasitic In-
sects," to the current number of the
Anatomischer Anzeiger, a German sci-
entific journal.
-Classes under Prof. A. A. Stanley
and Mr. Earl Moore of the school of
music, which have been meeting in the
exhibit room of Alumni Memorial hall

--H. R. Crane, a senior in the forestry

for forestry work in the Klanath In-
dian reservation in southern Oregon.
-Tuesday, June 23 has been the date
selected for the annual senior class
day, according to R. H. Braun, chair-
man of the senior engineers' class day

Greater stress is laid on classical
subjects as entrance requirements tos
the engineering department, in the
new catalogue which will be isued,
this year. No official change has beenl
made in the requirements but it is
clearly stated that two years of Greek
will be accepted as well as the number
of year's work in a modern language.
According to Assistant Dean W. H.
Butts of the engineering department,
Greek has always been accepted as a
unit but the fact has never been em-
phasized in the catalogue. Three years
of Greek will now be accepted and also
four years of Latin.
This policy, which is one that Deans
Cooley and Butts have always favored
is in accordance with the general
sweep of the introduction of classical
studies into the preparatory and col-
lege curriculums of the engineers.
Quantity of Plants Will be Set Out in
Botanical Gardens.
The university has recently purch-
ased a quantity of new shrubs and
plants that will soon be set out in
the botanical gardens which are lo-
cated at the head of Geddes Avenue.
This is probably all of the money that
will be expended on these gardens for
some time to come, as a request will
soon be made to the regents for an
appropriation to start the develop-
ment of the new tract of land which
was recently purchased on Packard
street for the purpose of building up
an entirely new garden for the use of
the department.
Mr. A. J. Pieters of the botany de-
partment has but recently returned
from an eastern trip where he spent
considerable time in making a study
of the eastern gardens and parks.

The large room on the second floor
of the university museum in which the
Stearns musical collection has been
on exhibition is to be remodelled into
a laboratory. The museum staff will
all use the laboratory for certain
work, but it is to be built primarily
for the use of Mr. Norman A. Wood,
curator of birds, who will specialize
in working with mammals and birds.
The construction work is to begin
in thenear future, but the laboratory
will not be used until next fall when
the summer zoology expeditions re-
turn from South America and Texas.
Booklet on Summer Camps Issued.
A booklet describing the many feat-
ures of this year's surveying camp at
Douglas Lake is now on the press and
will be ready for distribution within

tinue their classes in the homeopa
and dental buildings, and the psyc
ogy students will meet in room
North Wing.
The new science building is to
four stories high, and will occup
large part of the space between
law and chemistry buildings. One
of the structure will parallel the d
onal walk. The new building will
tain the rooms of the psychology,
estry, zoology and physics del

Although the senior lit memorial
committee had practically decided to
submit plans for a campus bulletin
board, for a memorial, to the class for
approval, it is probable that the plan
will have to be abandoned. Campus
authorities are opposed to such a
board on the ground that it is impos-
sible to design one that would be use-
ful and artistic at the same time, for
a moderate sum.
The committee is now considering
leaving $300 either as a fund for
beautifying the campus or as a loan
fund for deserving students. The mat-
ter will probably be decided at the
next class meeting.
The summer plans of the faculty of
the botany department include a trip
to southern Europe for Prof. New-
combe. Mr. A. J. Pieters will spend
the summer in studying and mapping
the vegetation. of the woodlots in
southern Michigan, in company with
Prof. Sponsler of the forestry depart-
ment. Dr. Gleason will give instruc-
tion at the Douglas Lake Biological
Station, and will be in charge of the
work there, while Professors Kauiff-
man, Pollock and Hus will remain at
Ann Arbor to teach in the university
summer school.
Health Service Office is Enlarged.
The second story addition of the
university health service office will
soon be ready for occupancy by Dr.
Elsie S. Pratt, for the women patients.
All of the equipment has arrived ex-
cept an electric sterilizer, and the
opening of the addition will be delayed
until its arrival. Several rooms will
be provided for by this new addition,
including an operating room, a recep-
tion toomn and an examining room.
