Pharmic Fored to Drop Out of Course
in Which He Attempts
to "Crib"
After being detected in the act of
cheating in a class in the College of1
Pharmacy, a student, whose name is
being withheld at the request of Dr.
A. B. Stevens, secretary of the college,1
was forced to drop the course in which
he attempted to "crib."
Professor Stevens said in regard to,
this matter, "Every few years this sort
of thing happens, especially in the
course in the manufacture of pharma-
ceutical preparations, where the lazy
or poor student is tempted to purchase
the products, or obtain them, from
some other students in the course. We
are, unfortunately, forced to keep a
pretty sharp lookout for this sort of
thing. This is the first case this year
that I care to mention."
As this naturally touches upon the
honor system, which has received so;
much discussion, Professor Stevens al-
so expressed himself as being abso-
lutely opposed to the installation of
any such plan. "The good students are,
not the agitators of this movement,"
he said. "They will succeed under any
system. If we should install it, we
would see no marked change in their
work, but the poor student would prof-
it by it."
The name of the guilty student was
withheld by Professor Stevens in the
hope that a decided change for the1
better would be effected. "When a
student does a thing of this sort" he
said, "and later repents, he may be-
come a good, conscientious student.
I believe in giving a man every chance,
before publishing his name, and hope
that I am pursuing the proper course1
in this matter."
Two Games Slated for Tonight in1
Basketball Series
Mere apparance in basketball suits
at Waterman gym at 7:00 o'clock last
night, won the only scheduled game
for the fresh engineers,the senior laws
failing to report on the floor at the
appointed time, and the game being
forfeited to the yearlings.
Two games are slated for tonight,
the soph lits clashing with the fresh
engineers at 7:00 o'clock, and the fresh
fits being carded to meet the archi-
tects at 8:00 o'clock.

April 23 to 25 has been chosen as the
date for the annual Busrah campaign
on the Michigan campus, in accord-
ance with action taken at a meeting
of the cabinet of the Students' Chris-
tian association held Tuesday night.
Paul V. Ramsdell, '16, is the chairman
who will have charge of making all
arrangements for the four-day can-
vass,. and he will be assisted by Miss
Laura Feige, '15, who will have charge
of the canvassing among the women
on the campus.
The sum which the association will
attempt to raise this year is $3,500,
about $1,00 less than the amount which
was pledged by the campus last year.
The smaller amount is occasioned by
the fact that $1,200 of the amount,
which was subscribed last year, was
for the purpose of making good a
shortage which had been accumulat-
ing during the previous several years.
Although no definite plans have been
made as yet, the chairman expects to
follow somewhat the, same plan for
raising the budget as was used last
The campaign will be closed on Sun-
day night, April 25, by a large meeting
in Hill auditorium. At this gathering,
which will correspond to the annual
meeting of the S. C. A., Raymond Rob-'
ins of Chicago will speak. In addi-
tion present plans include the bring-
ing of Paul B. Blanshard, '14, to Ann
Arbor for the big meeting.1

Mrs. William J. Hussey, '91, of Ann
Arbor, and Katherine Post, '09, formere
presidents of the Women's League, will
be present at the annual women's lun-
cheon at 12:30 o'clock Saturday, in ad-
dition to the six whose acceptance to
this twenty-fifth anniversary have al-+
ready been announced. All the form-
er presidents will meet in conference
with Catherine Reighard, '15, presidentf

ing the day to consider the subjects of
revision of the constitution, and of the
system of representation on th -
League board.
Dr. Laura Richardson, dean of Olivet
college, will be a guest at the lunch-t
eon, the arrangements for which pro-
vide for 16 tables. The tables will be
presided over by the wives of mem-1
bers of the faculty.

time for guests to attend the Saturday
afternoon performance of the Michigan
Union opera.
First Year Engineers Discuss Honor
Committee in Assembly
Prof. S. J. Zowskl, of the mechanic
engineering department, in an address3
to the fresh engineer assembly yester-
day morning, endeavored to put at
rest some of the misconceptions of
freshmen, upon first taking up engi-1
neering work. The question of the
honor committee was taken up by thec
class, and the appointment of its me.-
hers was left to the discretion c. the1
president. Money was appropriated
for the purchase of the caps and let-
ters won by fresh engineers who have
participated in athletic events.

With almost 200 registrations on the
first day of the fiftieth annual conven-
tion of the Schoolmasters' club, it ap-
pears as though this year's meetings
will shatter all former records in at-
tendance. While the Short-Term State
Institute nearly added another 100 to
its original registration list yesterday
afternoon, the Academy of Science,
started its twentieth annual spring as-
semblages with one of the best crowds
that-has ever attended its opening ses-
The Schoolmasters' club began its
meetings with the Classical confer-
ence held in Alumni Memorial hall,
and almost at the same time Prof. A.
G. Ruthven, of the geology department,
gave his presidential address to the
Academy of Science on "The Zoge'o-
graphical Problem of the Guiana Sand
Reefs," which included a report on
th recent expeditions of the museum
to Demera, South America. Professor
Ruthven pointed out, in his lecture,
that "it is the object of the museum of
the University of Michigan to be some-
thing more than a mere provincial in-
stitution, and that the intention is to
obtain more than the general locality
material." A group of colored slides
were used to illustrate the conditions
in the far south.
The meetings of the Academy of Sci-
ence have been divided into five sec-
tions, and each section is to take up
a certain phase of scientific activity.
The program for today is as follows:
8:30. o'clock-Council meeting, geo-
logical laboratory, museum.
9:00 o'clock-Meetings of sections.
(For places of meeting see program

search club in Alumni Memorial hall.
The feature of today's program will
be the public lecture given by Prof.
W. H. Hobbs on "Some Italian Earth-
quakes" in Hill auditorium. Profes-
sor Hobbs has made a long and thor-
ough study of earthquakes.' He will
describe the earthquakes of 1905,
1908, and that of 1915, which was one
of the worst that has ever occurred.
The general program for the School-
masters' club, as well as the program

April 22 has been set as the date for
the presentation of the play "Trojan
Women," a Greek drama by Euripides,
which has been secured by the com-
bined efforts' of the Drama and Wom-
en's Leagues for an appearance in
Hill auditorium.
Largely through the efforts of An-
drew Carnegie and Jane Addams,,-the
playa was started on' its way around
the country to arouse sentiment in fa-
vor of a world-wide peace.
It will be presented by a cast of 17,
and the management carries its own
scenery and provides something out of
the ordinary in the way of lighting ef-
fects, producing an effect that is truly
unusual land beautiful.
Stuart Perry, editor of the Adrian
Telegram, lectured before the classes
in journalism yesterday afternoon, on
"The Small Town Newspaper" "The
chief advantage of reporting on a city
newspaper," said Mr. Perry, "is that
the reporter' can specialize in the field
that most appeals to him, although he
is constantly subjected to high pres-
sure work. A metropolitan reporter is
iittle good on a country sheet, as he
is specialized and is tempted to over-
shoot the mark with his big-city ideals.
On the other hand, small town report-
ers have to deal with a bit of every-
thing, and this broader experience en-
ables them to work more easily into
the city jobs than the ordinary city'

Attorney General at Lansing Arrives
at Final Decision Concerning
Belief Expressed That Immediate Steps
Will Be Taken to Introduce
Another Act
LANSING, MICH., March 31.-Ac-
cording to an opinion handed down
this afternoon to the liquor committee
of the state legislature, the Straight-
Stevens bill, for the prohibition of the
sale of liquor within a five-mile radius
of all state educational institutiol,
has been declared unconstitutiondl.
The attorney general arrived at this
decision after having had the measure
under consideration for the past 10
days. He based his contention on two
defects in the framing of the bill.
Although no plans have been made
as yet for the framing of another bill,
unconfirmed rumor at the Capitol, af-
ter the publication of the decision, has
it that the backers of the measure
would take immediate steps for the
formation of another bill, with like
provisions, but framed under the
guidance of the office of the attorney
Rumor has it also, that the purpose
for which the bill was originally in-
troduced will be merged with the
Straight state-wide prohibition meas-
ure, which is now in the hands of the{
liquor committee of the state Senate.
This, bill provides for a state-wide iref-
erendum, on the question of prohibi-
tion, the early part of next year.
It is believed that, had the bill been1
declared constitutional, and ha' it
been reported out of committee, t, nt
it would have become a law, in viw1
of the fact that there is an avowed+
majority of the "dry" element in the
House of Representatives, and abou
an even break on the question of
drinking in the Senate.
Select Chaperons for Baseball Dance
Chaperons for the Varsity baseball
party, to be held as a membership
dance at the Union Saturday night,'
will be Postmaster Horatio J. Abbott;
and Mrs. Abbott, and Dr. Mahlon Sut-
ton and Mrs. Sutton. Pasteboards for
the affair, will go on sale at the Union
counter this afternoon, at 50 cents,
each for members.


Supporters and opponents of
igan's honorary societies will h
chance to express their opinions
the organizations, when the Y
discusses the subject at 7:30 o
tonight at the Union. The forma
is for consideration is, "Are the
orary (Not Honor) Societies Per
ing a Satisfactory Function and
Method of Selecting Members for
Fair?" Allan T. Ricketts, '15E
preside, and will outline the ga
nature of the talk, before the 1
ning of the discussion.
As shown by campus opinior
chief objection to the societies, is
they are not a positive force at
igan. Some students think tha
woon as the men are elected, the
that their responsibility ceases
that therefore they do not accon
any constructive work.
In order to find out what sub
the campus wishes to consider
officers of the Forum announce
any one may suggest a topic, a
neeting for consideration at a s
, luent gathering, or may write ou
title of the question, and hand
