A bill is now before the Wisconsin
legislature which if passed will abolish
all secret societies in the state insti-
tutions. Property to the extent of
$650,000 and fully 900 students will be
affected at the university alone.
The proposed law states that all
Greek letter fraternities, societies and
secret orders of students, shall be
prohibited in the university, the state
normal school, and in all institutions
supported by the state.
Another bill intended to abolish the
"Junior Prom" and other expensive
and elaborate class dances at the uni-
versity is being considered by the
state senate. It was introduced by
Senator E. F. Ackley who declares that
college students, in supporting such
functions, are impoverishing their par-
ents.
"When university students so impov-
erish their parents by suporting $1,800
dances," said Senator Ackley, "it- is
high time the people of the state were
informed of what is going on at their
university."
EMBRYO JOURNALISTS' WORK
WILL BE SENT TO DETROIT.
In order to give the members of his
class in journalism the benefit of prac-
tical newspaper criticism and to make
them familiar with the requirements
of newspaper writing, Prof F. N. Scott
has arranged to have articles written
by the students in that course sent to
Detroit where they will be criticised
and commented upon by one of the
city's prominent newspaper men. Un-
der this arrangement the work of the
students will be edited as though in-
tended for publication, although no at-
tempt will be made to duplicate the re-
quirements of a newspaper office in
the writing of such articles. This pro-
cedure will be introduced for the first
time during this semester.
WELL KNOWN GRAD PRAISES
ADVANCEM'ENT OF THE UNION
Capt. Sealby, '12L, Says its Large
Membership Is Best Argument
For New Building.
"With its present 2,400 menbers,
the Michigan Union this year is in it-

Inman. Sealby, '12L, when seen last
evening. "I can remember when the
Union was a struggling little insti-
tution, of a few hundred members, and
this was not so long ago, In nine
years it has come to be the chief factor
in Michigan student life, and it will
be even a more potent force when it
has the equipment to accommodate
the needs of the student body as a
whole."
Capt. Sealby, who was active on the
campus during his three years in the

he made the Mediterranean jaunt to
Naples, and spent some time in Eu-

time for San Francisco, where he will
practice law.

this class will now take in regard to
the recommendation of the inter-lit
conference, is not known. It is gen-
erally expected, however, that inas-
mitch as the chief objection in the sen-
ior class seemed to arise from an in-
disposition on the part of the miajority
of those present to dictate to their owni
classmates as to their mode of danc-
ing, the recommendation. of a mo cre
general body of students will be re-
spected.
