of action was decided upon January
29, when the executive committee of
the board of Regnts authorized the
engineering department to give the
plan a trial.
The object of the system is to aid
in developing more unity in the dif-
ferent courses, botW' in the methods
and plan of teaching, and in the body
of the subject matter itself. At pres-
ent the instructor has certain author-
ity to plan, and give courses in the
department, and he has his own ideas
which sometimes do not conform to
those of the heads of the department
who are working out something along
lines of their own.
The teaching ass stant will be a
man who has finished his regular
course, and is taking advanced work,
specializing in some particular branch,
and has shown marked ability in that
work. He will be especially trained
to carry out the plans of the head of
the department. The assistant will
thus become the mouthpiece of his
superior, by whom he has been es-
Another thing which it is thought
will be of great importance is the
fact that on account of salary saved
in this way, more funds will be avail-
able for professorships, and it will
make it possible to obtain men who
are not now available.
"Of course" said Dean Cooley yes-
terday, "it is more or less in the
nature of an experiment, although it
is not entirely untried for Prof. Zow-
ski has had a teaching assistant in
hydraulic machinery for the past year,
and it has worked out there very sat-
isfactorily indeed. In fact, it was
this success that encouraged us to
believe the present plan could be
worked out advantageously in other
branches of engineering studies."
In accordance with Dean Cooley's
recommendation, the executive com-
mittee appointed the following teach-
ing assistants: Stanley R. Thomas of
Ann Arbor and Saul Saulson of Grand
Rapids, to teaching assistantships in
mechanical engineering for the sec-
ond semester. Both of these men have
completed their undergraduate work,
and have been recommended for their
degrees. Both will be laboratory men.
Another appointment to a teaching
assistantship is F. W Pawlowski of
Springfield, O. Ass't Prof. Grenier
and Mr. Pawlowski together will
teach machine design and machine
design theory, and also the theory of
gas and oil engines. Mr. Pawlowski
has studied avation at Sarbonne, Par-
is, which makes it possible to give
courses in aviation. He has also been
engaged for two years in designing
automobile engines, which makes him
available in case a course in the de-
signing of automobile engineering is
CONSERVATION DISCUSSED BY
PROF. ROTH AT UNION SIUNDAY
"Conservation" was the general sub-
ject of .the talk given by Prof. Fill-
bert Roth, head of the forestry depart-
ment, at the Michigan Union Sunday
afternoon. Judge Wiliam Day, of To-
ledo, who was expected to address the
regular Sunday gathering, was unable
to come at the last moment, and Prof.
Roth was called upon to express his
views especially in regard to the cur-
rently mooted question concerning
state supervision over conservation.
"Since conservation has been active-
ly taken up by the federal govern-
ment," said Prof. Roth, "the progress
made in checking the wanton waste
of our natural resources has been
highly creditable. There seems to ex-
ist no plausible reason why the central
government should give up its control
over conservation. In the case where
the individual states have had charge
of this matter, negligence has fre-
quently been present,-and indeed,
politics are more intimately involved
where the state is the controlling fac-

are willing to help us. All informa-
tion will be treated confidentially.
"The men we are after are those
who handled the battering ram by
which the gym dlr was broken iin
and those who threw the bricks.
"The faculty and members of the
student council feel that a blot has
been put on the universtiy by Friday
night's affair and the only thing that
can be done now is to discover and
punish the offenders."
BY GOVERNOR SHAFROTH
(Continued from page 1)
We westerners know what is best for
"All we ask is the same opportunity
to ;row and develop that was given
the east, south and, north-the condi-
tion under which we were admitted in-
to the union. The policy, of conserva-
tion is unsuited to the development of
the country and is an invasion of the
rights of the states imposed upon
them by the federal courts.'?
Governor Shafroth leaves today for
Washingtpn, where as senator-elect
he will enlist with other westerners in
the fight against conservation bills
now up before congress.
