Cheer Leading and Band Questions
Come Up For Debate at
EXPECT RESULTS OF RIOT PROBE
Competitive cheer leader systems
and the Varsity band will be the chief
subjects for debate at the regular
meeting of the student council this
evening at 7:30 o'clock, in the orator-
ical rooms in the north wing of Uni-
At the meeting of the board of di-
rectors of the athletic association last
Tuesday, the petition of the council
regarding the matter of cheer leaders
was referred back for further consid-
eration. It is expected that at this
evening's session some definite dis-
position of the subject will be made
by the student solons.
The result of the investigation into
the Junior Hop fracas, undertaken by
the council, has not yet been made
public, and some announcement along
this line is anticipated, although it is
probable that this subject will not be
treated this evening.
[t was not the Cornell meet alone
at served to bring out this fact. The
racuse meet, and the Varsity meet
fore it, showed plainly and conclus-
ly that with practically the same
e of material at hand as composed
t season's Varsity squad, Farrell
s moulded the men into a first class
gregation. And now, with such a
11 balanced team in the field, atten-
n naturally turns to the outdoor
son and to the Eastern Intercollegi-
Won Third Last Year.
n the last several years Michigan
placed in the eastern classic. Last
r she came home with third place
her credit. And this was due large-
to the efforts of a few men. This
son with these same one or two
n to depend on, and in addition a
ich of real track men to back them
there seems to be no reason why
higan should not show even better.
Taff, undoubtedly among the best
lege quarter-milers today, Haim-
igh, equally as good in .the two-
e, and almost as good in the mile,
gent in the high jump, Kohler in
shot put and hammer throw and

second place in the eastern event,

ad could be named. Under Farrell
the men have been doing mighty
d work, and they are expected to
elop even more when once the team
rith a well balanced squad already,
t a good two months in which to

son why Farrell should not take

MAY SEND FOUR FRESHIES TO

If Yearlings of Sufficient Fleetness
Can Be Uncovered, Trip Will
Michigan may be represented at
the Pennsylvania relay races by a
quartet of freshmen quarter-milers for
the first time since the university has
sent teams to the relay classic on
Franklin field. Sanction for this de-
parture was given by the athletic
board of control at its meeting Sat-
This year's freshmen class is strong-
er in 440 men than any class for many
years, but that it possesses four men
who can run the quarter in fast
enough time to make an impression
in the East has not been proved. C.
B. Smith is the one yearling who has
marked ip as good as 52 seconds und-
er the observation of Trainer Farrell,
and it is claimed by friends of Uffer
that he has also made the distance in
time as fast as this.
It will be up to the freshmen to
turn out two other men with ability
to come under the mark at some figure
close to 52 seconds, if the sanction of
the board of control is to be taken
advantage of possible candidates men-
tioned in connection with the remain-
ing two places are Lyttle, Shulkin,
Gore, H. Smith and Catlett.

ter will lead the demonstrations, and
other members of the classical faculty

The modern language conference

Conference Will Probably Act Before
Matter of Return to Fold
Goes to Meeting of
BOARD OF CONTROL PLEDGES
SELF TO ASK FOR ENTRANCE
Stone-Wall Would Be Encountered if
Regents Declined to Alter
Personnel of Body.
f Although an official interpretation
of the recent resolutions of the board
of control relating to Conference re-
turn has not been made, it is probable
- that the matter will be acted on by the
Conference before it reaches the board
The resolution calling upon the
Conference to abolish the boycott rule
is iron-clad, and is made a contingen-
cy to the return resolution. In other
words, before the resolution to change
the board of control and return to the
fold becomes effective, the western or-
ganization must abolish the boycott
When this is done, the board of con-
trol here practically pledges itself to
petition the regents for a change in
its makeup,and to present a reques tfor
re-entrance. Hence the regents here
have really the final say on the matter,
and the Conference must act first be-
fore the matter reaches the university
fathers at all. .
Undc, these condit ons many inter-
esting situations are liable to arise, as
for instance if the Conference abolish-
es its boycott, and then the regents re-
fuse to change the board. Just what
would be the outcome of this would be
hard to prophesy.
COLLECT FUNDS FOR AID OF
LITERARY AND LAW STUDENTS
Faculty members all over the cam-
pus are interested in the proposed
adoption of the honor system in exam-
inations, and many are actively engag-
ed in backing the movement. Several
professors in the engineering, medical,
and literary departments have ex.
pressed much enthusiasm over the
plan, but, almost without exception,
they declare that an attempt to insti-
tute the honor system should originate
with the students, no matter how much
the faculty might desire it. Prof. C. O.
Davis, whose five classes in education
adopted the plan last semester, thinks
the proper way to get it accepted gen-
erally on the campus is to have the dif-
ferent classes and the student council
pass upon it.
Approies of Honor Idea.
When asked his opinion of the hon-
or system yesterday afternoon, Prof.
C. 'H. Cooley, of the economics depart-
ment, said, "The work in my classes
is of such a nature that I have never,
had occasion to be concerned about ex-
aminations, but I think it a progressive
plan. As a social psychologist, I hear-
tily approve of the principle of the
honor system, for I consider it a step
in the direction of self-government,
which certainly is highly desirable.
All that I have heard of it is favorabl'/,
especially at the Carnegie Institute in
Pittsburg, where, on my visit last year,
I was assured it was a pronounced
Prof. David Friday and Dr. Carl H.
Parry, of the economics department,
both-endorsed the system, saying, how-,
ever, that they had no experience with
it in practice. Concerning the scheme,
Dr. Parry made this qualification:
"There is no compromise between the
honor system and the police system.
If the honor system is to be made a
success,the instructor must make him-
self independent of the behavior of the
class, and put the students wholly up-
on their own responsibility. I shouldr
certainly like to see it tried out hereR
Students Should Act First.
"The request for an honor system
should come from the students," de-
clared Prof. Henry E. Anderson, of the
mechanical engineering department,
last night. "No pledge should be asked1
from the student, neither should he

A lengthy dress rehearsal was held
last night at the Whitney theater, and
Director Bert St. John was well pleas

initial performance tomorrow evening
and tonight's rehearsal will serve
chiefly to put on a few of the finishing
touches.. The early practice and train
ing given the choruses has done much
to bring about a finished show for the
first night, and consequentlytthere wil
likely be little difference in the quality
of the various performances.
The books containing the music o

All persons connected in any way
with "Contrarie Mary," and all active
members of Mimes, were the guests o:

the whole company.
The Wedemneyer scholarship fund,
which is being promoted by Frank C.

Recent contributions have come
from the Rev. P. T. Rowe, bishop of
Canada; Ex-Governor Chase S. Os-

The largest amounts so far have
been three $100 sums, given by Sena-

"The idea of the professor putting
the plan up to the class is all wrong,
but instead there should be a volun-
tary agreement between the students,
a creation of a higher sense of honor.
Such a plan should have the aspect
purely of 'honor among gentlemen.' An
honor system must depend for its suc-

sentiment among all the tudents, and
the free development of such a senti-
