DOES NOT DENY HITTING JANITORf
Dr. W. J. Bien, who was .roped
Allen of the engineering department
who is at present on a year's leave 01
abseice directing the building of the
engineering department of Robert's
college at Constantinople. Since the
outbreak of the Bhilkan war, Prof. Al-
len and the other Europeans at the
college have undergone all the expe-
riences of neutrals in a hostile land.
Letters from him have been received
with the infrequency that coies with
war time and his latest to Prof. Burs-
ley of the local faculty is filled with
the political situation that at present
threatens the overthrow of Moslem
rule in Europe.-
"Work here is progressing quite
well," he writes, "with the exception
of the tunnels, which are almost com-
pleted but which have been stopped
for want of dynamite and powder, and
these the Government refuses to sell
to us as they have not enough for their
own use. They have finally agreed to
let us bring it in if we can. Of course,
it is a contraband of war, and not so
easy to get through. So far we havej
always been able to get everything
through, whether contraband or not.
We are becoming past masters in the
art of deception, and in a short time
will be able to out-Orient the East.
Were I in Michigan I would probably
be aerving a term in Jackson State's
Prison, but in Turkey we have a differ-
ent standard of morality.
Turkisa Government Is Shaky.
"Matter here at present are very
bad. Tl: country is practically with-
out a gvernment. As no doubt you
have sien by the papers the Kaimil
Pasha cabinet, the best the new gov-
ernmfnt has ever had, was forced to
resi ;i at the point of a revolver. Na-
zim ?asha, the minister of war, refus-
ed tj resign in any such a manner, and
was shot by one of Enver Bey's lieu-
teants. Of course, the papers here
lve said that it was accidental, but
uch accidents are very common in
'urkey, and usually happen at the
critical moment. I doubt if Chevket
Pasha, the new Grand Vizier, has the
ability to cope with the present situa-
tion. There is already talk of depos-

These six men will be divided into two

"Oh! For Goodness sakes!"
And then sighs followed by inarticu-
late spluttering greeted the unfortun-'
ate individual who undertook to in-
form the sorority houses that the hop
had been done away with.
"I think it's mean," moaned the
freshman who had cherished hopes and
visions of her trip to the big dance in
some later year.
"Well, I am glad I went this year,"
chimed the senior and then hied toi
lock her programs and souvenirs in
the safety deposit vault.
Seriously, Michigan's women stu-
dents do not, as a whole view the fac-
ulty action with favor. While they
have never been in sympathy with theg
objectionable dances and althougli
they have had many criticisms to maket
concerning the function, they are in-
clined to take the matter as a reflec-
tion upon themselves.t
"It seems to me that the abolish- t
ment of the hop puts the university 1

woman last night. "While I do not I

could be criticised. In fact I did not
notice any dance where the lights were
so low that the dancers could not be
plainly seen. If all dances are to be
given under glaring lights, then let
some action be taken regarding the
Union parties. The lights over there
are often dimmed and I believe in

One alumna stated that she was
glad the hop had been done away with.
"I think the action of the senate was
the best bit of legislation we have had
about here in some time," she said.

Sentiment among faculty members
supports the action of the university
senate in abolishing the Junior Hop so
long as the objectionable features con-
tinue. The general opinion is that the
music, aided by the dark dances, was
the direct cause of the extreme danc-

than that the action expressed his
