Michigan Chapter Receives Members
at Banquet Held
at Union
Michigan chapter of Tau Beta Pi,
national engineering honor fraternity,
initiated 13 junior engineers and six
alumni of the College of Engineering
into its body, at the Union last night.
Following the initiation a banquet was
given in honor of the initiates,at which
Herschel C. Smith, '-15E, was toastmas-
ter and Prof. John R. Allen, of the en-
gineering college, Howard Enos, '15E,
president of the chapter, and Don A.
Smith, '16E, were the speakers.
The junior engineers who were ini-
tiated into the society were: Frank
3. Vonachen, James D. Todd, Francis
T. Mack, Harold H. Perry, Don A.
Smith, Sherwood Holt, Arthur A. Bur-°
rell, John B. Breymann, Harold J.
Smith, Macdonald S. Reed, James M.
Reid, Arthur F. Grenell, and Harley D.'
Although seven alumni of the col-
lege were elected to the body, only six
were initiated last night. G. H. Ben-
zenburg, '67E, of Milwaukee, was un-j
able to be present, and will be initi-
ated at a future meeting of the society.3

Michigan's negative team for the
Mid-west debate with Wisconsin to be]
held tomorrow night at Madison, leav-
es this morning under charge of Prof.'
R. D. T. Hollister. Though confident,
the Varsity debaters realize fully that
the cbming contest will tax their re-
sourcefulness to the limit. Mr. H. M.
Houghton, who received his M. A. de-
gree from Prof. T. C. Trueblood, of the,
oratory department, is a worthy train-
er for Michigan's opponents.
The team which will meet the Wis-
consin affirmative consists of three
experienced men. G. C. Claassen, '15L,
received his preparatory college train-
ing at the Collegiate Institute of Ft.
Scott, Kansas, and was granted his
A.B. at Findlay College, Ohio. At the
latter institution, he won the Academy
Oratorical medal and became a mem-
ber of the Findlay debating team.
B. F. Gates, '15, was a member of his
high school debating team for two
years, and served two years on the de-
bating team of ParsonsCollege, Iowa.
S. F. Rosenstein, '15L, graduated
from Cass High School, of Detroit. He
was a member of the high school de-
bating team an4 speaker pf the House;
of 1tRpresentatives of the same school.
Preparations for tle home debate
with Illinois at 8;00 p'plock tomorrow
night in University Hall, are nearing
completion, pgd flijal nnpuncements
will be issupd tpmnrrpw. The Michi-
gan affirmative team fpr the locl con-
test is composed of Harrison M. Karr,
grad., Jacob Levin, '17n, n4 Victor H.
Sugar, '1Q.
The question fpr debate will be:
"Resolved, That .in .Ati-trust Legis-
lation Labor Unions Should Be Ex-
empt from Construction as Co'mbina-
tions in Restraint of Trade."
To Give Last of Lenm Tks Today
Prof. A. H. Lloyd, of the philpsophy
department, will deliver the last of a
series of Thursday afternoon Lenten
vesper talks at 4:30 o'clock today at
St. Andrew's church. This lecture
will be given Wuder the auspices of
the Hobart guild and the Episcopal
Girls' club, and all students in the
university, together with the general
public are invited,
Homeopatbe Alumnu$ t Talk TQnig ht
Dr. Arthur Norton, '05H, will give
an illustrated lecture on, "Surgical
Work in Korea," at the meeting of the
Verification club at 7:15 o'clock to-
night in the large lecture room of the
.homeopathic hospital. Dr. Norton has
been connected with missionary work
in Korea as a medical and surgical
officer, and is well qualifled for talking
on the topic which he has chosen.

Professors Express Selves Favorable
to Continuation of
Faculty members of the English and
history departments of the university
were guests at the fourth faculty night
held at the Michigan Union last night.
Large numbers of students from va-
rious departments turned out.
Among the faculty "men who attend-
ed were Prof. L. A. Strauss, Prof J.
S. *P. Tatlock, Prof. S. F. Gingerich,
Prof. W. R. Humphreys, and Mr. W. O.
Raymond, of the English department;
Prof. C. H. Van Tyne, Prof. A. L. Cross,
Prof. E. W. Dow, Prof. U. B. Phillips,
Prof. E. R. Turner, Dr. . F. Scott, Dr.
M. B. Garrett, and Mr. R. H. McLean
of the history department.
"It was one of the purposes," said
Professor Van Tyne, "at the founding
of the Union several years ago, that1
occasions where the faculty should
come in closer social relations with
the students should thereby be encour-
aged. I am heartily in favor of these
faculty evenings."
Professor Tatlock suggested that
perhaps some other night would make
it possible for more students to at-
tend, and voiced the general sentiment]
in favor of the continuance of the get-
togethers. Professor Turner said,
"such events as these faculty nights
might, well accomplish what the facul-
ty advisory system aimed to accom-

ing department;

and J. A. Brown, '05E,

made away with more than $50 worth
of property.
The robbery was not discovered un-
til noon when a fountain pen and wal-
let were found missing, which result-
ed in a general search. Occupants
of one room round they had been,
stripped of every cent in their posses-
sion, although no jewelry was miss-
It is believed that the robbery took
place about 3:00 o'clock in the morn-
ing, for at that time the house-keeper
was aroused by peculiar noises. Her
stirring about probably frightened the
robbers away, and prevented any fur-
ther loss of property. According to
the police no information or word of
the robbery had been reported to them.
Architects Run Up )50 Points against
Senior Laws; Fresh Lits
Defeat Sophs
Running up the highest score of the1
season, the architects beat the senior
laws in a 50 to 'Wigame 'it nal
series of the clash asketball season7
at Waterman gym last night. Thet
other game was ni ck and neck be-
tween the fresh and soph lits, the year-;
lings finally winning out by two pointst
in a 31 to 29 contest.-.
Drummond and Miller were thet
stars for the fresh lits, each hangingt
up five counters, wL.ile most of the
scoring for the sop s was done byl
Milroy and Bradbeer who scored 207
of the second year mi n's points. The
lineup and summaries follow:

Much routine business is slated to
come before the Board of Regents at

their regular meeting tonight. Plans
for gymnasium improvements will
probably be brought before the board,
in accordance with the action taken at
the last meeting, when a resolution
was passed appropriating a sum not to
exceed $50,000 for improvement of
gymnasium facilities. At that time,
plans for the improvements were re-
ferred to the committee on buildings
and grounds.

Director Sanger and Chairman Baxter
Announce Tentative New
Leading Man

Startling Number of Cases Reporh
May Cause General
Dean Mortimer . Cooley, head <
the college of engineering, publici
signaled the opening of a campaig
against cheating in examinations I
that college yesterdy morning, whe
lie spoke on the subject for five mi
utes before freshman engineers a
their assembly. The tone of the dean
talk to the first year students was on
of warning, instead of open accuse
tion, and he made a strong appeal t
the freshmen to awaken to the signif
cance of fair-dealing in the quizzes fo
the sake of their own careers.
He said in part, inspeaking of re
ports which he had lately receive
from faculty members and students c
the enginering college, "The type ,
engineer is changing, if'the reports c
cheating are true. Engineers can n
longer be permitted to take charge o
big engineering projects, and have th
care of millions of dollars in money, i
many cases without bond, as they hayl
formerly." He appealed to the fresh
men to bear their futures in mind, a
to remember that a clean recor
means much toward success afte
The dean will follow up the cam
paign Friday morning, when he wil
talk at the junior engineer assembl
at 10:00 o'clock, and the sophomore as
sembly at 11:00 o'clock. At both o:
these talks he probably will be slight
ly more severe in tone, and will urg
the classes to take the solution of the
cheating matter into their own hands
At the junior assembly a- propose
honor system will be presented b
members of the class, and a genera
"house-cleaning" in the departmen
will be suggested.
Dean Cooley, when interviewed yes
terday, stated that a startling numbe
of cases of cheating in the college ha
been recently called to his notice, an
although he first refused to credit the
statements, evidence from faculty an
students alike had forced him to tak
cognizance of the matter. A disiplin<
committee from the faculty of the col
lege was appointed, consisting o
Prof. C. T. Johnston, chairman, an
Assistant Dean Wm. H. Butts and Prof
Walter T. Fishleigh, and the matte:
was put into their hands. Since th4
appointment of this committee a num
her of cases have been disposed of
and more are under consideration.
Dean Cooley himself, is 'at a loss bt
know how to cope with the stuatioi
because he stands against ospioniagt
and lecturing on the. subject. He be
lieves that the matter could be mos
effectively solved in the hands of th<
students themselves. His idea of th
cause of cheating in the college is tha
the danger of the situation has ho
been presented with sufficient force
and he will carry the matter openly
only far enough to secure some sort o
recognition on the part of the stu

greatest demand for tickets up to the
present time has been for Friday night.

In order to be present at the meet-
ing of the Forum at 7:30 o'clock to-
night at the Union, the Intercollegiate
Prohibition association will adjourn
its meeting early. The topic for dis-
cussion is "Is the Adoption of the Stev-
ens Bill Desirable?" This proposed
piece of legislation is ordinarily known
as the "five-mile act," and if passed,
would prohibit all saloons within a
five mile radius of any state education-
al institution.
A wide variety of opinion in regard
to the measure has been expressed on
the campus, especially since the jour-
ney of the Ann Arbor committee to the
state capitol last week, and the larg-
est crowd of the year is expected at
this Forum session,
Some of the opponents of the bill
maintain that its passage will be con-
trary to the doctrine of home rule.
The supporters of the proposed act an-
swer that when the university was
first established, Ann Arbor was "dry,"
and that since then the saloons came
to the city. They also say that the
legislature has the right to repeal any
legislation that it deems unwise.
Some of the questions which prob-
ably will be asked and answered are,
"Will the Passage of the Bill Merely
Mean That the Saloons Will Move Five
Miles Up the River?," "Will It Lessen
the Evil of Drink?" and "Will It Be
Instrumental in Attracting More Stu-
dents to Ann Arbor?"
