fact that the training of a trip has not
been given, the clubs are in shape to

France to lecture in his own country
and abroad. He is especially familiar
with the United States, having visited
the country many times and talked in
many of the leading universities and
colleges. He has always carried back
with him material which has enabled
him to write of the American peope,

to "Le Revue des deux Mondes," by
"The Representative Men of Emer-
son," and his essays on "American
Idealism" and "American Energy."
The latter work published in 1910
was crowned by the Academie Fran-

HISTORY CLASS IN FAVOR
OF HONOR CODE IN FINALS.
Professor l. R. Turner's English
history class voted in favor of taking
the final examination under the hon-
or system. Out of about 300 only six
voted in the negative. This class took
the mid-semester examination under
this system and that it proved success-
ful is shown by the overwhelming ma-
jority in its favor. The part of the
pledge requiring students to report
any evidence of cheating is not includ-
ed in the history class's pledge.
It was voted in the acceptance of the
resignation that Abbott remain in of-
fice until the inauguration of a new
president sometime during the second
semester. It was felt that a lapse in
the presidency would work against the
best interests of the class as regards
several important matters now pend-
ing in the office.
This action on the part of Abbott
came as a result of his finding that he
would be unable to graduate this year-
owing to work taken in the engineer-
ing department with the expectation
that he would be admitted to a com-
bined lit-engineering course. At the
time of the election last fall no ques-
tion of Abbott's eligibility was made
and he thought that he was eligible to
take part in the activities of the class.
It was not until last week that he
learned definitely that he would not be
able to graduate and by his own voli-
tion he resigned his office.
The crux of the whole difficulty, it
is said, lies in the fact that the mem-
ber of the student council in charge
of the senior lit election this fall fail-
ed to verify the nominations at the
registrar's office to find out about the
eligibility of the nominees.
Subsequent to the resignation of
Abbott a motion was unanimously
passed in class meeting yesterday to
the effect that the secretary enter on
the journal a resolution expressing the
earnest regrets of the class as to the
unfortunate circumstances surround-
ing the election of the president and
thanking him for the service which
he has done the class this year.
Dean J. R. Eflinger, speaking in re-
gard to the matter says: "I believe
that Mr. Abbott acted in perfect good
faith in accepting the nomination and
election, but that later developments
showed him that he was not eligible."
Reports of some of the committees
were also given but nothing of a defi-
nite nature was submitted.

WORK ON "MONEY"
Rehearsals Begin Again for Junior
Hop Performance of the Comedy
Club on Feb. S.
NEW INSIGNIA WILL BE GIVEN.
Again back to work, the Comedy
club is swinging into shape for its
second presentation of "Money"
which as a special feature of Junior
hop week will be given at the Whit-
ney theater Saturday afternoon, Feb-
ruary 8, at 2:15 o'clock. Te Thes-
pians at rehearsal yesterday, which
was run off in Sarah Caswell Angell
hall, showed that the vacation had not
made them forget the lines of the
play, as the complete performance was
gone through without a hitch.
Frequent rehearsals will be held
from now on until the time of presen-
tation, and Mr. Bert St. John will
again be on hand to coach the play-
ers in stage work and crossing. The
performance will be given with' the
same effects which were used at the in-
itial performance of December 14.
Subsequent to the performance of
"Money," new lights who have come
into the fold this year will be award-
ed the insignia of the club. It is ex-
pected that a change will be made
from the old Comedy club pin which
has been in vogue for many years
past. As to what the new insignia.
shall be. nothing definite as yet has
been decided upon. It is hoped that
a uniform decoration of some sort will
be given, and that all members will
be identified by the same insignia. On-
ly one insignia will be given to each
member and older players will not be
advanced from the pin to the fob and
the gold bar fob as has been the cus-
tom in the past.

Crooked Mahogany Cane With Silver
Band is Choice
Seniors will appear on the campus
in a few weeks with real professional
dignity. A mahogany cane with en-
graved silver trimmings is destined to
be part of the equipment of the cam-
pus gentleman. It is probable that
by the cooperation of the senior lits
and engineers a Michigan cane will
At a meeting of the senior lits yes-
terday the souvenir committee which
has the matter in charge reported as
in favor of carrying canes. The report
was accepted and the committee will
confer with the 1913 engineers with
the aim of establishing a Michigan
cane. The engineers have also placed
the matter in the hands of a commit-
tee which is considering various pat-
terns. Whether the two departx ents
cooperate or whether department can-
es are' used, the Prince of Wales type
will probably be adopted.
The idea originated with the senior
engineers but probably the laws will
be the first to actually place an order
for the walking stick. Although tile
committee from the lit class conferr-
ed with the laws in regard to adopting
a uniform cane for all classes, the
latter were in favor of following out
the original idea of the committee,
namely of adopting a department cane.
The laws discussed the matter of
carrying canes at a meeting late in
the fall. A committee was appointed
which was to have ultimate right of
decision. The committee recently de-
cided definitely on the matter and at
present over 100 have promised to buy
the stick. An order will be sent in
at once through G. 0. Woolfolk, 316
South State street. The pattern se-
lected is a crooked mahogany stick
of the Prince of Wales type. Each one
will be embellished by a silver band
on which the class numerals will be
engraved. Others have signified their
intention of buying canes and it is ex-
pected that another order will be plac-
