Registration in the short course in
highway engineering reached a total of
65 yesterday, the second day of the
session. Each succeeding day will
probably bring its quota of road men
to the course. According to the fac-
ulty men in charge, the course is
wholly successful as far as it has
gone, exceeding expectations in many
ways. The students are taking to the
work, and are bent upon accomplishing
as much as possible in the short space
of time allotted to them.
Classroom work of various kinds
was undertaken yesterday morning, as
for each. morning of the week. The
topic discussed was one which inter-
ested most of the engineers, since earth
roads, the subject, are by far the most
common form of highways. Two pa-
pers were given yesterday. Prof. W. C.
Hoad, of the sanitary engineering de-
partment, gave the first, and K. I. Saw-
yer, inspecting engineer of the state
highway department, read the second.
The lecture of the day was delivered
by Prof. Charles Ms, Strahan, dean of
engineering at the University of
Georgia. His subject was "Developing;
an Earth Road." He was introduced
as "a man who probably knew more
than any other person in the country,'
concerning, the development of earth
oads." Professor Strahan said by way
of introduction that he came from the
home of the cheapest form of road
building, Georgia, to the.-home of one
of the most expensive forms of high-
way construction, Michigan. The anal-
ogy lay between the earth and concrete
roads. He attempted to show, in his
lecture, just what should be done in
order to obtain the best form of earth
roads, touching especially upon Michi-
Today's program includes papers by
Frank F. Rogers, Michigan state high-
way commissioner, and Prof. H. E.
Riggs, of the civil engineering depart-
ment. The first will be "Contract Lab-
or vs. Day Labor in Road Construction
in Michigan." The second is entitled,
"Specifications and Contracts."

SHIFT ROBINSON TO QUARTER
That "Hap" Haff will not coach the
freshman track squad this season, was
the announcement made yesterday.
This means that Coach Farrell will
handle both aggregations, as in form-
"Hap" has ambitions along other
lines, and fears that he will be unable
to devote the proper time and atten-
tion to the yearling squad, and there-
fore prefers to leave the coaching sit-
uation alone. Although Farrell real-
izes that Haff's decision means a- dis-
tinct loss, the coach has left the mat-
ter entirely to him.
Robinson, the freshman dash man,
will be shifted to the quarter mile.
Whether "Robby's" transfer to the 440
is temporary or permanent is unset-
tied, and in the fresh-soph struggle,
he will run both distances. Coach Far-
rell saw Robinson run a; quarter last
year at the Penn relays on a prep
school team, and although his team
was decisively beaten, Robinson him-
self tore off the last quarter in less
than 50 seconds.
Although this clocking was unoffi-
cial, Farrell was sufficiently impress-
ed to shift the sprinter to the quarter,
and with the wealth of material on
hand in the dashes, Robinson may be
left in this event for the present year
at least. Saturday night he will enter
the 35 yard dash against O'Brien with
the odds a trifle against him, but in
the 440, whoever runs against him ap-
pears due for a trimming.
There will be no restrictions placed
upon the number of men allowed to
compete in the 35 yard dash, the high
jump, pole vault, hurdles and shot put
in the tilt between the freshmen and
sophs Saturday night. In the other
events both teams will be limited to
five men, and as it is doubtful whether
more than this number turn out, trials
of any description may be unnecessary.
The makeup of the sophomore team
is dependent to a considerable extent
upon whom Coach Farrell drafts from-
the 1917 team over to his varsity relay
quartet to run against Princeton. InI
the field events, the shot put, pole
vault and high jump, the dope all fa-l
vors the sophs, while the races are
a puzzle. The sophs should take the1
35 yard dash and the freshmen the
quarter, but the half and mile depend
upon who runs against Princeton.-

FORUM TO BRING UP QUESTION

"Is the Marking System at Present in

cussion at the first meeting of Michi-

7:30 o'clock tomorrow. W e r n e r
Schroeder, '16L, will preside
The forum will be held every Thurs-
day night until spring vacation, and
has been instituted to discuss vital
campus problems. The object of those
behind the organization is to have a
place where those interested can as-
semble, and put forth their views, and
not to form a debating society.
No formal rules will be enforced, ex-'
cept that speeches must be limited to
five minutes. Any one may speak a
second time, however. It is probable
that the discussion will last about an'
hour and a half, although adjournment'
will depend upon a motion.1
Michigan May Have New laboratory

which owns property on the Huron
river, including Barton dam, which is
only a distance of three miles from
Ain Arbor, has offered to co-operate
with the university in erecting the new
laboratory. Upon the guarantee of
$35,000, preliminary plans will be
drawn up and arrangements for pro-
curing the necessary land and a con-
