Fire insurance plans for students
have been receiving the attention of
the university authorities, as a result
of the recent fire in the Benjamin
house, on Washtenaw avenue.
An investigation disclosed that only
a small number of students in the uni-
versity carry any fire insurance on
their personal property, and that those
that do are limited almost entirely to
members of fraternities and sororities,
this being attributed to the lack of
suitable collective policies that would
be feasible for students who are not
members of any house organization.
At the request of Secretary Shirley
Smith, the university fire insurance
representative has prepared a recom-
mendation for feasible plans, as fol-
lows: First, that the students in each
individual house appoint a trustee for
the purpose of taking out insurance in
that particular house; second, that
some local agent issue an open policy
covering the property of students
wherever located, in which case each
individual student would apply for a
certificate protecting the holder under
the open policy for the amount in the
Locai insurance agents suggested
that a more practicable idea would be
for the students in each house to take
out a policy without appointing a trus-
tee, but merely having the policy made
out collectively, with each student's
name entered on the policy.

Reported That Lower House Commit-
tee Refuses to Favor Funds
for Educational Institute
FINAL DECISION NOT REACHED
Reports from Lansing announce that
the university committee of the lower
house of the state legislature has elim-
inated the model school, which the
board of regents petitioned for at their
last meeting, from the university ap-
propriation bill. The bill in its origi-
nal state had called for an appropri-
ation of $30,000 for the erection of a
training school to be conducted in con-
nection -with the educational depart-
ment of the university and also an ap-
propriation for an addition to the li-
brary. The library portion of the bill
was not changed.
Contrary to reports current in local
state papers, this does net mean that
Michigan will have to wait until a lat-
er date for funds with which to build
the school, as the matter of appropri-
ations rests with the ways and means
committee. This committee will con-
sider the bill next week, at which
time a hearing will be given to super-
intendents and other school men who
are in favor of the construction of
