TO BOSTON MEET
After having "bummed" their way
900 miles to see the Intercollegiate
meet at Boston last week, two students
arrived home late Tuesday night with
the mournful tale that by the time
they had crossed the Massachusettts
state line the meet was over.
Many, varied, and exciting were the
experiences of which the two relate.
At Bridgeport, Ontario, the train on
which they were riding "blind bag-
gage" stopped so that they discovered,
by the glare of a big electric light,
Canadian customs and immigration
officials on either side. Breaking
through a group of His Majesty's 'fin-
est,' the two raced a heat which they
claim would have baffled a stop-
On the return trip they stopped at
Buffalo, and entered a big hotel. When
they stepped up to sign the register,
the natty hotel clerk looked at them
askance, and his finger nervously
reached for the button to cell the
house detective. However, they man-
aged to spend Sunday night there with-
Their worst experience came while
crossing Canada on a fast freight.
They crawled into a gondola filled with
pig iron before the train got up speed,
and by the time the landscape was
doing the cinematograph act, the 'pigs'
got to jostling one another about in
true porcine fashion. Both avow that
bituminous coal was a soft bed in com-
parison, and their scratched hands
and torn clothing bear eloquent tes-
NOTED FRATERNAL ACTUARY

MUSICIANS MAKE MERRY IN
ANNUAL JOYFUL PROCESSION
In a couple of conveyances which
greatly resembled the prairie schoon-
ers of the days of '49, the Mandolin
and Glee clubs gave their annual sere-
nade last last night. The procession
started at the home of Prsident Harry
B. Hutchins, continued to Dr. James
B. Angell's and from thence made the
rounds of the sorority houses. At ev-
ery stop the many musicians received
a dainty luncheon after reproducing a
reportoire of popular songs.
FUTURE PEDAGOGUES ADVISED
TO VERIFY NAMES ON LIST.
All students who are expecting to
receive the teacher's diploma this year,
and who have paid the regular fee to
the treasurer, are requested to exam-
ine the list of candidates posted on the
bulletin board in Tappn hall. If the
candidate does not find his name on the
list he is urged to communicate with
Prof. C. O. Davis at once. No candi-
date will be given the teacher's diplo-
ma who has not completed 11 hours of
work in the department of education.
To Have Three New Fraternity Houses
Three new fraternity houses will
be added to the many buildings of
Greek letters in Ann Arbor. Sigma Chi,
Acacia, and Chi Psi will abandon
their present quarters and occupy new
houses in the fall.
The Sigma Chi building, which is
under construction, is located south
of the Michigan Union. Contra'cts for
Acacia and Chi Psi house are now be-
(At request of Professor Lloyd, act-
ing for the Non-Athletic committee,
the following letter, which has just
been sent out to each of the profes-
sional fraternities, is published in full
in The Michigan Daily.)
The rating of the professional fra-
ternities on the chart recently sent
them has given rise to considerable
discussion, especially among the med-
ical fraternities, and to some protest,
and the committee responsible for the
chart, after due consideration, has
concludedtthat the questions involved
should not be overlooked. When one
of the chapters concedes that its rat-
ing is possibly too high, while another
is very sure that it has been put too
low, there is a presumption at least
that the results on the chart are of
Of course on pages 16-17 of the
printed report, which was sent out
with the chart, the committee said
that complete and satisfactory figures
were not obtainable at the time, ow-
ing to lack of graded records in some
departments or to lack of uniformity
among the departments, and that ac-
cordingly the results were to be tak-
en only as a general indication of con-
ditions. This reservation was made
also because the investigation covered
only one semester, the second of 1911-
1912. But the committee's statement
seems to have gone unnoticed or pos-
sibly to have been inadequate.
The burden of the uncertainty or
deficiency of the chart seems to have
fallen on the fraternities of the law,
medical and dental departments, large-
ly because these departments in 1911-
1912 recorded no grades higher than
"passed." Accordingly, in recognition
of this fact and of the discussion and
protest, already referred to, the com-
mittee, desirous of removing any pos-
sible injustice, has decided that the
specific evidence of the chart so far as
involving the fraternities of depart-
ments that still retain the old marking
system be waived and that the question
of the comparative standing of these
fraternities be left an open one.
As the department of law now has
the so-called alphabetical marking sys-
tem, there will hereafter be no serious
difficulty in that quarter, but the com-
mittee may have to decide that any
rating of the medical and dental fra-
ternities with regard to their standing
either among themselves or in relation
to the clubs of other departments is
not feasible. Certainly the chart for
1912-1913, to be prepared during the
summer and published some time be-
fore the opening of the next academ-
ic year, will show no rating of these
fraternities, unless some plan satisfac-
tory both to the committee and the de-
partments concerned can be devised.
The most serious obstacle appreciated
by the committee, lies in the fact that
any grading based only on the pro-
portional number of failures to meet
a minimum passing mark must always
be of questionable value as a basis of
fair discrimination among clubs many
of which may have members of excel-
lent ability and attainment. Where
special excellence counts for nothing,
failure gets a weight quite beyond its
So, in conculsion, at the present
time, the committee is making no at-
tempt to give any revised rating of the
professional fraternities for 1911-1912.
Such revision of the published chart
as might be possible does not seem
likely to clear up any of the doubts or
in general to afford a fair presentation
of the situation. The committee is
simply asking that the first rating of
the professional fraternities be waived
and that judgment be suspended.

TO DECIDE REPETITION OF
EXHIBIT AT NEXT MEETING
Although it is generally agreed that
the success of the first exhibit of the
engineering, architect and forestry de-
partments insures the repetition of the
exposition on a larger scale next year,
official action to that effect has not
been taken by the faculty as yet. The
executive committee of the exhibit will
submit a report showing the expenses
and results achieved in the recent
show at the next faculty meeting and
decisive action is expected.
