PROF. WHITNEY CRITICISES
EDITORS OF PUBLICATION.
He Objets to Stateent That Public
Schools Train Students Only
for Higher Education.
Prof. Allen Whitney,. head of the
educational department, in one of hisl
classes yesterday criticised the editorsi
of one of the monthly publicationsc
who object to the present public schoolc
courses in that they are designed only
for those who intend to seek higher
education. He did not disregard the
fact that these magazines backed upl
their statements by statistics.
"The criticism made by the 'Ladies1
Home Journal,' and other publications ,
is altogether too narrow and unfair,"l
said Prof. Whitney, "They base their
criticism in the first place, upon sta-
tistics that are in a certain sense ac-1
curate, but in another sense most in-t
accurate. I feel that one of the aims'
of the public school is to teach peoplet
to make a living."
He continued, saying that he ap-1
proved of this, but that he thoughts
that the public school had another pur-
pose, and that was to train the stu1
tents who intended to pursue their
studies farther in the colleges and uni-
versities. His idea was that the public
schools should combine both of these1

J. H. Marks was the host last even-
ing at a beef steak diner given at the
Allenel hotel in honor of the different
foremen of the university buildings

vantage of the opportunity to "get to-
gether" in some other than a business
connection, the various caretakers of

WOMEN'S BANQUET APPOINTED
Affair Together With Junior Girls
Class Play Will Be Given'
on April 3.
Committees for the annual women's
banquet have been appointed, and ar-
rangements for the event are well un-
der way. The following are in ch'arge
of the work; general chairman, Louise
Conklin, '13; class representatives,
Aimy Bodin, '13, Grace McDonald, '14,
Dorothy Alden, '15, Kathleen Holmes,
16; treasurer, RubySeverance; col-
legiate alumnae representative, Mrs. J.
Cumming; others, Dean Jordan, and
Mrs. R. Haigner.
The woman's banquet has become an
annual affair and is attended by many
prominent alumnae and representa-
tive women from all over the country.
The date for the affair is April 3, and
the price of the tickets, upon recom-
mendation of the woman's league, to
the committee, has been raised to one
At 4:00 o'clock, of the afternoon of
the banquet, the junior class play
will be presented in Sarah Caswell
Angell hall, after which the guests
will go to the gymnasium, where the
tables will be placed.
LAWS DISSATISFIEID WITH
SECONID SEMESTER SCHEDULE
Next semester's schedule is causing
considerable dissatisfaction among the
junior and first year laws. The first
sections of both classes have been as-
signed recitations at eight or nine
o'clock in the morning and also at
three o'clock in the afternoon.
Hoping that some alteration might
be made in their favor, the freshmen
sent delegates to the faculty to see
what could be done. However, they
received no encouragement and unless
notice is posted to the contrary, the
original arrangement will prevail.
CODMTITTEE FINDS MONEY
SCARCE FOR A MEMORIAL.
Despite the fact that university wom-
en were served long and faithfully
by Maggie, the janitress of Barbour
gym, who died during the holiday va-
ca Aon, the contributions are not com-
ing in for a memorial to her. When
the project was started, the commit-
tee supopsed that allof the women
students would be only. too glad to add
their mite to a fund that could furnish
a suitable memorial. Up to date, only
$35 has been collected and the inter-
ested workers have about reached the
conclusion that Michigan's women
belong to the "out of sight out of
To date the motey from the sorori-
ty houses has not been turned in, this
doubtless will teVgl to swell the fund
to some extent. All donations should
be in the hands of the committee by
Wednesday of next week. Although
no definite action has been taken, pop-
ular opinion seems to favor a large
mirror with a silver inscription.
League Will Not Meet Today.
There will be no meeting of the
Women's League today. This action
was taken by the committee because
of the nearness of examinations.
