President Hutchins and Dean Effinger
Express Themselves as in
Favor of Book
Cost of Establishing and Advertising
Met by Subscriptions of
Michigan's book exchange which is
to be formally opened Monday morn-
ing, in McMillan hall has received the
official sanction of President Harry
B. Hutchins, and Dean John R. Effin-
ger, of the lit department, in an inter-
view granted to the organizers of the
exchange, yesterday.
When approached on , the subject,
President Hutchins said that he would
give his most cordial support to any
plan that would benefit the students,
and from his knowledge of the plans
on which the exchange is to be oper-
ated, it appeared to him that this
scheme was worthy of a serious try-
out by the student body.

Comedy Club Stages Special Show for
ilrama League Officials
This Afternoon
"Pomander Walk," the play to be
presented by the Comedy club, on the
afternoon following the J-Hop, will
be given in Sarah Caswell Angell
hall at 4:00 o'clock this afternoon,
before a committee from the Ann Ar-
bor Drama league, to determine
whether the league will give the pro-
duction its stamp of approval.
The entire cast has been working,
on the play ever since the parts were
given out early in December. The
managers believe that if the special
scenery and costumes were' ready, the
play could be presented to the public
today. With an opportunity for near-
ly two weeks' of continued rehearsals,
"Pomander Walk" bids fair to win
unusual success.
The action in the play takes place'
along the Thames river at Chiswick,
in 1805. Humor abounds throughout

Flying Squiron Makes Presbyterian
Church Headquarters ~
for Stay

In an interview granted to M. W.
Welch, '17, who is furthering the proj-
ect to the extent of paying most of
the preliminary expense out of his own
pocket, lbean Effinger stated that the
plan as explained to him appeared to
be feasible and that he was heartily
in favor of seeing it tried out on the
Michigan campus.
During the past week, considerable
advertising of a quiet nature has been
engaged in by the committee, which
is aiding Welch in getting the proposi-
tion on a working basis, and a decid-
edly favorable sentiment has been
created among a large number of stu-
dents and organizations about the can-
pus. Within a few days, large posters
setting forth the outlines of the
scheme, and the location of the ex-
change, are scheduled to appear in
various places about the campus.
The cost of establishing the system
for caring for the books is being met
entirely by private subscription, and
no one connected with the exchange
will profit in any way from its trans-
actions. Books of any kind from the
cheapest to those costing several dol-
lars will be handled by the exchange.
Classes Pick Councilmen After Exams
Elections for student councilmen
will not be held by the junior lits, en-
gineers and laws until after the open-
ing of the second semester. Accord-
ing to the student council constitution,
these elections should be made before
the end of the first semester, but ex-
aminations and the fact that there are
no regular meetings before them, have
led officials to make the postponement.
The lits will elect the first Wednesday,
and the laws the first Friday, after
the examinations.
You May Not
Believe It, But--
"The Harvard Crimson," Harvard's
sedate and serious-minded paper, ap-
peared Monday morning with cuts of
a skyscraper, an imported straw hat,
regulation pumps and dress suits to
be worn in committee conferences on
the front page. One news story told
of the "modest building for the noted
Daily," which was to be only 24 stories
in height. Another article explained
that the Crimson would thereafter
print a full and graphic description
with illustrations of each day's weath-
er. The announcement was made that
the Student Council had announced
the following day as Straw Hat Day,
and other equally 'important' items
of news were included. And the cause
of this sudden breaking away from all
rules and traditions of any sober uni-
versity daily, is only to be found in
the knowledge that the comic issue
of the Crimson appeared as the result
of the broken off relations between
members of the Crimson staff, and
those of "The Lampoon," which is the
Harvard humorous periodical. The'
trouble started when the editors of
"The Lampoon" did not attend the]
banquet of the Crimson, and as a
result, the members of the two staffs1
have come to physical combatin some1

and canters.
Chaperons will be requested by the3
committee to enforce the rule pro-
hibiting flowers. This rule was cx-'
forced at the last two Junior hops,
and is not an innovation of the pro-
ent committee.
A smoker will be held at 7:30 o'cloc
tonight at the Union, which will afford
all men who intend going to the hop,
particularly those who are unaffiliated
with any of the fraternities or house-
clubs giving parties, to meet and ar-
range their dance cards. All the mem-
bers of the hop committee will be
present, and will talk on the various
features of the hop, such as the plans
for the booths, the music, and the dec-
orations. All questions pertaining to
the hop will be answered. Refresh-
ments and "smokes" will be furnished,
for which a nominal fee will be charg-

All but 300 students at Cornell uni-
versity are engaged in some form of
athletics, according to statistics re-
cently furnished by the director of
physical training there. This is a per-
centage of over 92.5 per cent of the
undergraduates, and the number is
exceptionally large in comparison
with other leading universities.
According to the statistics, the most
popular of the many branches of ath-
letics indulged in by the students are
track and tennis, although the other
lines of sport are also patronized to a
large extent.

Expedition to Enter China and Thibet
Students interested in joining an
expedition this coming summer into
the interior of China and Thibet, the
undertaking to last at least two years,
may do so by semi-independently man-
aging their own finances, according to
a letter received by The Daily. The
opening is for a few university men
who would care to accompany Dr. F.
V. Holm, of 14 John Street, New York
City, on his circumnavigation of the
globe. Those interested may com-
municate directly with Dr. Holm.
City Council Prohibits Sunday Movies
Sunday moving pictures and all oth-
er forms of theatrical exhibitions are
a thing of the past in Ann Arbor, as
the common council passed an ordi-
nance recently prohibiting all holi-
day shows. The action was due to a
protest of Ann Arbor ministers, who
objected to Sabbath movies, because
they kept people away from church.

letin of the law class of 1897 has been
sent to the editor of the Michigan
Alumnus. In addition to containing
campus notes of interest, the bulletin
also included an individual report by
each member of the class, in which he
told of his activities for the year past.
The periodical is edited by W. L.
Hart, '97, of Alliance, Ohio, who issues
it the first of each year. This is the
eighteenth publication of the bulle-
tin in as many years.

was considered one of its best speak-

Regents Will Ratify Summer Faculty
Many eminent authorities on various

and it is expected that their appoint-
ments will be ratified by the regents
at today's meeting. The list has not
yet been made public.

governor, state senators and repre-
sentatives, asking their cooperation in
the matters which the society wishes
to have incorporated into the laws of
Michigan. Among these are the gaug-
ing of streams, so that an accurate re-
port of the resources of the state may
be obtained, an increase in the pay
of county surveyors, and a support
for the geological survey of the state.
Since the government offers aid to
states in this latter matter, the entire
burden of taking the survey would not
fall directly upon the taxpayers of
Michigan. The survey at present is
declared to be in a poor condition, and
would take 13 years to complete, if
progress were continued at the pres-
ent rate.
The attendance exceeded all predic-
tions yesterday. It was estimated that
there were more than 300 engineers
present at the afternoon meeting of
the society,. The increase was due
largely to the joint meeting, which
was held with the Detroit Engineering
As predicted , 'the papers which
caused the most discussion were those
on the work of the international com-
mission on -the pollution of boundary
waters, and that on city management.
The former was the one which had
particular interest to the Detroit men.
It was claimed that certain of the
Canadian towns pollute the water with
their discharges and so make the wat-
er unfit for drinking purposes. The
work 'of the commission has been in
progress for several years and it is
likely that the question will not be
settled for some time to come.
The paper on city management was
delivered by C. E. Chappell, '08E, re-
cently appointed city manager of Jack-
son and formerly holder of the same
position for the city of Big Rapids.'He
advocated the city manager-commis-
sion form of municipal government.
The banquet at the Michigan Union
last night was well attended. Dean M.E.
Cooley and Frederick Mason of De-
troit were the principal speakers. The
retiring president, J. J. Cox, presided.
The session of this morning at 9:00
o'clock will close the thirty-sixth an-
nual meeting of the society. Miscel-
laneous papers, and all business which
has not been attended to before, ,will
be taken up at this time.
Paintings by the Chicago Society
of Artists, which were to have been
removed last Sunday, will remain on
exhibition in Alumni Memorial hall,
until February 11. The paintings have
been attracting considerable attention,
and the Ann Arbor Art association has
arranged to have them remain for the
longer period.
The collection contains the works
of prominent Chicago artists, and the
list of artists includes some of the
most representative men and women
of Chicago. There are. between 40
and 50 paintings included.
