Michigan, However, Does Not Consider
Giving Up Her Well-Known
Training Table.
That Michigan may again meet
teams from the "Big Nine" is indi-
cated by a conference between rep-
resentatives of the University of Mich-
igan and several of the conference'
universities, presumably Minnesota'
and Wisconsin and perhaps Illinois,
which occurred in Chicago Saturday.
The meeting was secret in nature
but became generally known in Ann
Arbor when the Chicago Record-Her
ald touched upon it as follows:-
"In a secret conference lasting over
three hours representatives from the
University of Michigan and the col-
lege conference colleges last night at
the Annex laid plans for the Wolver-
ines return to the ."Big Nine." The
session was conducted behind closed
doors and at the end delegates pres-
ent scattered to the four winds, mean-
while maintaining strict secrecy.
"'We promised each other that not
a word would be said about what was
done,' said Phil Bartelme, who rep-
resented the University of Michigan,
'I am willing to admit that we inform-
ally talked over the conference situa-
tion; but further than that I have noth-
ing to say.'

President Returns From Washington.
Pres. Hutchins returned Sunday
from Washington, D. C., where he and
Dean Cooley attended the annual
meeting of the National Association of
State Universities. The business ses-
sions, according to the president, were
devoted principally to problems which
concerned the younger universities.
Papers were read by both Pres. Hutch-
ins and Dean Cooley. After the con-
vention Pres. Hutchins spent
a few days in New York city and Dean
Cooley went to Annapolis for a short
business visit.
E. V. Pipp to Speak Before Journalists
"Confidence as a Newspaper Asset"
will be the subject of an address which
E. V. Pipp, managing editor of the
Detroit News, will deliver before Prof.
Scott's class in journalism this morn-
ing at 9:00 o'clock. The lecture, is
open to all who are interested in the

The art of ensemble received a per-
fect exposition last evening in the con-
cert of the Flonzaley quartet, as this
organization has attained all the finish
of performance which makes the per-
fection of ensemble. The appreciation
of the audience was evident; and the
favor which these devoted artists have
always won here has apparently in no
way diminished.
To enumerate the qualities that
made last evening so deeply pleasur-
able would be then but to state the
beauties that belong ideally to cham-
ber music: charm of tone, a light and
delicate smoothness, the fine "many
in one" of polyphony, and sensitive
balance of phrase and expression.
The Program last evening included
two works from the classic period that
produced chamber music in its pres-
ent form, and a modern example of the
form. This finished occasion for not-
ing how perfectly adapted is music of
Mozart and Haydn to the genius of the
quartet; and how perfectly the quar-
tet can express the greater complex-
ity of the modern musical spirit. In
the two classics, one felt always the
perfect adaptation of matter to ex-
pression But notably in the first
movement of the Tschaikowsky quar-
tet, the material and structure seem-
ed too orchestral for satisfactory
chamber music, and seemed striving
for something it could not reach.

Is the general sentiment of students
in favor of the honor system? Upon
the answer to this question de-
pends the fate of the proposed system
for the course in English history.
Prof. E. R. Turner explained to his
classes yesterday what is contemplat-
ed and called for an expression of
opinion. The general sentiment of
the members of the class seems to be
that they will accept the system, with
the provision that they shall not be
compelled in so doing to commit them-
selves to a policy of tale-telling. It
is quite probable, therefore, that the
measure will go through, as Prof. Tur-
ner has no intetion of asking that men
report the cheating of others, except
at their own discretion. It is prob-
able that the proposition will be put
to a direct test this week; that is,
that students will be requested to sign
the pledge. Whether it is to be adopt-
ed depends on the number of signa-
tures obtained.
It is interesting to note how other
members of the faculty view the sub-'
ject of honor systems, so-called.
"There are two kinds of honor sys-
tems," said Prof. Brumm, of the rhet-
oric department, "only one of which'
I believe to be the true honor system.:
That is where a man is left absolute-'
ly on his own honor, and is not forc-
ed into doing what is right by fear of
penalty for wrong-doing. I do not be-
lieve in such honor systems. It should'
be taken for granted that men in the
university are honorable. I believe
such honor systems are entirely
against the true spirit of a great uni-
"As far as telling on another man is
concerned, we are not here in the po-
sition of men who would spy upon a
criminal; and the idea is against the
ethics of most students. Whether
right or wrong, for myself, I could'
not help liking a man less who came
to me with a tale about a fellow stu-
Whether such an Ideal system, how-
ever, is practical in its results may be
doubted from the words of Dean
Vaughan, of the medical department..
When questioned last night concerning
the success of the honor system in'
force in his department, Dean Vaugh-
an said, "Yes, the present system
works well.. The entire matter is in
the hands of a board selected by the
students. Before this board are tried

Three Michigan men have been
chosen by G. W. Axelson, of the Chi-
cago Record-Herald, for positions on
his All-Western eleven. Craig, Pat-
erson and Pontius are the men who
have been given the honor with grid-
iron heroes of Wisconsin, Minnesota,
and Chicago.
Craig is given the berth at halfback
for reasons well understood at Mich-
igan, since he is considered one of the
greatest halfbacks in the west. Pon-
tius is placed at end because "he was
probably the best end rusher in the:
west," while Paterson was placed at
guard in order "to strengthen the
That Michigan was recognized so
favorably is especially satisfactory;
because the other players are all pick-

ference man..

Squad are Honored With
Class Insignia.

"Before the meeting broke up a
committee was appointed to lay the
matter before the conference colleges
and the University of Michigan. The
question of re-entering the conference
fold will be laid before the University
of Michigan senate, and if what was
done last night is approved a meeting
will be arranged with the other fac-
ulty representatives.
"At last night's sessions only mem-
bers of alumni bodies and athletic
boards were present. The faculties
of the different universities have noth-
ing to do with it, but the ground has
been prepared and it can be stated on
the highest authority that Michigan
will be seen in the conference prob-
ably by this spring."
Director Bartelme of the Universi-
ty of Michigan admitted over the long
distance telephone that such a meet-
ing had been held, but as stated above
he could give out nothing definite as to
the outcome of the meeting beyond
what has been mentioned.
According to dispatches from Min-
neapolis, a meeting of the western
.conference has been called for Friday
of this week at Chicago, at which time
it is expected that the question offu-
ture relations between Mlichigan and
conference colleges will be discussed.
It is understood that Michigan is
willing to give up her All-Fresh foot-
ball teamif she can be granted the
right to use a training table in con-
ditioning her athletes. Whether other
concessions on Michigan's part will
be demanded or given is a matter
that has not become public property.
The first regular meeting of the
University of Michigan branch, Amer-
ican Institute of Electrical Engineers,
will be hi!d Wednesday evening, Nov.
27, at 8:00 o'clock, in room 348 .new
engineering building. A paper on
"The Application of Electricity to Iron
Mining, and Some of the Problems
which it Presents" will be presented
by W. F. Davidson. Other subjectst
will probably be discussed. The meet-
ing will be open to the public and all
interested are invited to attend and
take part in the discussion.

Coach Conklin of the All-Fresh team'
yesterday'selected 15 youngsters from
his big squad who he thinks are en-
titled to wear the numerals, of their
class. This limit is set by the board
so that it is impossible for the coach
to exceed it and this may account for
what may be a- surprise in that Gault
did not place in the honor list He
was injured, however, and did not play
in parts of more than two games so it
was impossible to award him this dis-'
tinction. The following are the ones
who drew the coveted ensignia: Dor-
rance, Mead, Diehl, Dillman, Benton,
Raymond, Cochrane, Norton, Roehm,
James Bastian, Davis, Quail, Catlett,
and Hunt.
The All-Fresh this year did not pass
through the most successful season of
its career by any means but injuries
seemed to beset the team whenever iti
got fairly started and the hoodoo was
too much to shake off. Several of their
games were close at that and it was
only by the turning of a hand that
the green ones came out on the wrong
side of the score. The material, how-
ever, profited by the fall's drill and
should furnish the regulation number
of candidates for the varsity next sea-
Error Made in Dates for Pictures.
An error 'was made in the Sunday
edition of The Michigan -Daily con-
cerning the final dates for senior pic-
tures in the Michiganensian. Correct-
ed they are as follows: until Febru-
ary 1 pictures may be had for $1.00,
until February 15 at $1.25. The man-
agement urges th.t seniors arrange
their sittings with the photographer
at once, if they wish any especial
choice of time, as the dates are being
rapidly filled.
Dr. Hulst, 'SSM, Visits Dean Vaughan.
Dr. Henry Hulst, '88M, of Grand
Rapids, one of the most expert x-ray
physicians in the country, has been
the guest of Dean V. C. -Vaughan of
the medical department, 'for the past
few days.

Dr. Hurty, secretary of the Indiansi
State Board of Health, one of the most
prominent health officers in the coun-
try will arrive in Ann Arbor early
this morning to deliver two lectures
on subjects pertaining to hygiene. At
4:00 o'clock in Sarah Caswell Angell
Hall he will speak to both men and
women on "Future Hygiene" and at
8:00 o'clock in the west amphitheatre
of the medic building he will address
men students on the subject fo "The
Elimination of the Unfit."
Dr. Hurty,who is recognized through-
out the world as an authority on pub-
lic health questions, has devoted many
years to the study of prison and asy-
lum conditions. He is' therefore in a
position to discuss intelligently the
"unfit" element and to suggest a meth-
od of eliminating its evil influence up-
on society.
The subject is one of unusual per-
sonal interest and any man who has
given it serious thought will appre-
ciate the remarks that will tend to
clear up any doubts that he may have
entertained upon the question.
On a bet of five dollars each, George
Caulkins, '13, and Spenser Scott, '14P,
walked from Ann Arbor to Detroit in
ten hours and nine minutes. They
agreed to walk steadily from the time
they started until they reached the
city limits of Detroit, where they
might take a car. They left at 7:12
o'clock Saturday night andkafter plod-
ding all night through the rain and
cold, reached Detroit at 5:20 o'clock
Sunday morning. After resting dur-
ing the da';, they arrived here Sun-
day night. Although they won the bet,
they have resolved never to try the
journey again.
English Text Book Expert Lectures.
Mr. George A. Plimpton spoke to an i
audience which filled the economics
lecture room yesterday afternoon, and
told them the many facts about the
development of text books. He began
his lecture with a description of the
books used in the schools of the Four-
teenth century and traced their de-
velopment down to the present age.
He read a number of passages from
the books used in the English schools
at the time of Shakespeare and gave
his audience a good idea of .what the
great dramatist must have studied.

Henry the Eighth Will be Produced
Tonight for First Time by'
Shakespeare Students.
"Henry the Eighth" will be present-
ed by Prof. T. C. Trueblood's class in
Shakespearean reading this evening
in their first public recital of the year.
The play selected has never been giv-
en by any of the previous classes, and
has never been played in Ann arbor.
"Henry the 'Eighth" is a mature
play of splendid sentiment. The class
lias been working hard on its rehear-
sals for some time, and contains some
exceptionally fine talent. The cast is


changed for each scene, to give all
members of the class an opportunity
to take part.
The recitals of this class have been
most popular in former years, and
with the selection of "Henry the
Eighth," and the excellent material he
has had to work with, Prof. Trueblood
believes the production will be most
entertaining to anyone interested ei-
ther in Shakespeare or dramatic read-

the cases of men accused of cheating
in examinations. If found guilty, the
usual punishment is expulsion from
college. There are, perhaps, two or
three cases a year. As to the matter
of one man informing another, 1 do not
think the system would work at all
without such a provision.. I am en-
tirely in favor of it." -
And now that it's all over -
now that the newspapers all over the
country have despatched their worthy
officers to the scene of action, and
flaunted the story under a double col-
umn head on front pages, et cetera,-
plus all the other news devices known
only to the initiated,-we may come
forward with our little joke. It was
all a mistake. What? Why-she
wasn't a perfect woman, after all.
The proverbial case of "once upon
a time there was a verdant reporter,
(or was it-'res?'), and the verdant re-
porter had heard much about a 'nose
for news,'-and thought he had it."
It was only a perfect "lung capacity"
-but then, it made a pretty news sto-
ry when played up to perfection.
The reporter has "broken into
Soph Engineers Hold Renominations.
Owing to the withdrawal of Glen
Angle from the vice-presidency of the
sophomort engineering class, it has:
been necessary to renominate men for
that office. The date of the election
of the candidates, C. B. Wells and
Victor Chatfield will be announced


The play is to be given by platform,
not stage presentation. It will be giv-
en in Sarah Caswell Angell Hall this
evening at 8:00 o'clock. No admis-
sion will be charged. The perform-
ance is to begin promptly, and the
audience is requested to be in their'
seats as early as possible, as the play
will begin exactly on the hour.
For the third time the date of theI
next meeting of the men's section of
the Deutscher Verein has been chang-
ed. The meeting will be held tomor-
row night instead of tonight and will'
be featured by a talk by Prof. A. A.
Stanley, head of the school of music,
who will speak on some subject rela-
tive to German music. Prof. Stanley's
lecture will be preceded by an elec-
tion of new members. The meeting
will begin at 8:00 o'clock.
