SENIORS AND FACULTY MEN
DISCUSS ADVISORY SYYSTE3I
That the senior advisor system has
been a success so far was the opin-
ion of all members present at the
meeting of the advisors held in Tap-
pan hall yesterday afteroon. While
much has been accomplished it was
agreed that there is still a great deal
to be done.
"Advisors should impress upon the
freshmens's mind that being warned
or put on probation is no idle thing."
said Dean J. R. Effinger. Also the
fact that a general education should
be had ,by all who are graduated from
Michigan should be told the first year
That there are three classes of
freshmen was brought out by Prof.
M. P. Tilley. There are students with
too much money, students who do not
know how to study and those with too
much outside work. That the senior
advisor system has benefited all of
these classes was the opinion of Prof.

The men signing up as having quali-

Considerable speculation has been
aroused over the meet since the an-
nouncement of the new form it will
take on this year. Whether the seniors,
juniors or freshmen will win out is a
question that is being freely discussed.
The sophomores are cleft entirely out
of the question owing to their disas-
trous showing of Saturday evening
against the freshmen.
The .juniors seem to have the best
opportunity of winning out for they

which will extend over a period of
two weeks. He will speak upon the

EXTRA LONG GAME

After Holding Boilermakers
to Tie Score.
FINAL COUNT IS 15 TO 23
It took five minutes overtime last
evening for the junior engineers to win
rom the sophomore lits in the fastest
>asketball game of the season. The
anal score was 25 to 23. At the end
>f the allotted time the count stood
21 to 21, so the quintets were forced to
play an extra five minute session.
The engineers started out with- a
rush and outplayed their lighter op-
ponents in the first half, but the
plucky lits came back in the second
period and located the cage for twice
as many counters as the last year
:hamps. The tie was first broken by
Jhapman, but Patterson soon tied it
tgain. With one minute to play, Week
;aged the sphere for the winning tally.
Brush played the star game for the
the winners, the lengthy center locat-
ed the net four times and was the most
langerous man for the lits to guard
Patterson also played a stellar game
at guard. For the lits the the two for-
Yards Stuart and Chapman were th(
:hief performers, while Marsh a
;uard made it a hard proposition for
Thienes to throw baskets.
Good team work was shown by the
engineers during the first half of the
battle and in the five additional min-
utes, but the second period was the
sophomore's round, and the light-
weights unearthed some real system-

Tut the one member who <has done
the most toward bettering the condi-
tions of mankind and bestow upon him
a substantial reward; provided that
the enthusiasm which greeted the sug-
gestion when it was proposed at the
recent New York alumni dinner can'
be crystalized in some organized way.
Secy. Shirley W. Smith is responsible
for the idea. When he suggested -that
it be carried out he found immediate,
support among the alumni, and a
movement is now on foot to establish
a fund for this purpose.
"The proposition is great," said
William McAndrew, '86, ex-president of
the New York Alumni association. The
thought that every alumnus ofnMichi-
gan, wherever he be-in China, in
Alaska, or in South America, has the
searchlight of his fellows turned on
him, is Mound to stimulate his efforts in
