A bureau for the study of legisla-

ernment is to be established next year,
according to President Harry B.
Hutchins, in his address at the open-
ing session of the Michigan State Con-
ference of Charities and Corrections,
in Sarah Caswell Angell hall last
"The gravest questions of the pres-
ent day," said Pres. Hutchins, are
problems concerned with city govern-
ment. In the solving of these prob-
lems, the university can be of, the
greatest help, and it is for this end
that this work will be started here."
Pres. Hutchins, who is head of the
conference, told of the wide field in
which the university is of service to
the state. In the matter of charity, he
described the character of the people
who are treated in the hospitals and
dental clinic. The hospitals, he said,
treat 10,000 cases annually, and the
dental clinic 5.000. The Pasteur In-
stitute, said the president, has treated
1,056 cases since its founding in 1903,
and not one case treated has resulted
President-emeritus James B. Angell
gave an address, in which he described
charitable methods when he was a boy
in Rhode Island. Problems of social
reform and service were unknown in
those days, he said; only abolition and
temperance were discussed. Dr. An-
gell attacked the fiction of the day, de-
claring that "short stories and prob-

The junior laws and soph eagineers
will try again to decide the campus
championship this afternoon on the
South Ferry field diamond at 4:00
o'clock. The game Saturday to decide
which aggregation would receive the
honor resulted in a 6' to 6 tie and so
the contest today is sure to be a fight
to the finish.
Haddon will be sent to work on the
mound for the engineers and.Spencer
will probably go back for the laws
altough Dobson may be the choice of
manager Witherow if the speed art-
ist's arm is in condition. Shepard will
do the backstopping for the boiler-
makers and Lackey is booked to work
with the big mitt for the laws.
The lineups will be practically the
same as, used Saturday with the ex-
ception of the third sack for the jun-
iors, which may be covered by Hippler
if Witherow's ankle is in shape to al-
low him to cover the right garden,
and Metcalf will no doubt be used in
the field for the engineers.
It is hard to dope out the result of
today's game from the contest Satur-
day, because the teams at that time
were evenly matched. The laws were
the heavy hitters, while the engineers
went the nine innings without an error.
Both teams are sure of winning today,
and if confiderice has anything to do
with the kind of baseball played, both
aggregations will display some real

In accordance with the recent rul-
ing passed by the Senate council and
the committee on non-athletic organ-
izations, the interfraternity confer-
ence has taken up the question 01
stricter rules regarding rushing and
the pledging of freshmen.

pledge any freshmen until the firsi
Friday in May, and that no engage-
ment shall be made by any fraternity
or member with any freshmen before

pose of enforcing the provisions o
the rules is provided for,and they may
punish a fraternity for infraction by
publication of the offense, by allow-
ing no rushing dates, or by not allow-
ing the fraternity to pledge or initiate
a man for the period of one year.
The rules also provide for the al-
lotment of four dates during the scho-
lastic year previous to the first Fri-

glases of beer in Damm's place Tues-

one glass for a friend. Cross-exam-
ined by John P. Kirk, attorney for the

tion of students buying liquor was

been cautioned by the officials to stay'

asked him why he did not heed the ad-
vice, since that very evening he had
gone into Damm's saloon and bought

strain and I thought that the drink

On Wednesday morning at 9:00
