Served on Commissions for Federal
Government in Scientific
Chancellor' David Starr Jordan, of
Leland Stanford Jr. university, will
appear in the Methodist church pul-
pit Sunday evening, October 31, to
talk on "The Last Cost of the War,
under the hospitality of the Wesleyan
guild. The speaker will come directly
from the state convention of teachers
at Saginaw at the end of this month
Dr. Jordan is one of the most illus-
trious speakers coming to Ann Arbor
during the year. His degrees include
those received from Cornell, Harvard
Paris and London universities. In
1891 he left his position as presiden
of the University of Indiana to accep
his present office of chancellor at the
California institution.
During the past 20 years Dr. Jordan
has served on several commission
for the federal government, especially
in a scientific capacity, and in inspec
tions of government fisheries. Amon
numerous offices with which he ha
been honored are: Chairman of th
American Eugenics commission, pres
ident of the American Educationa
association, director of the America
Peace Foundation and director of th
Boy Scouts of America.
In addition to some 400 scientifi
papers and articles in magazines, h
has published about 45 books. Som
typical titles of his works are as fol
lows: "The Heredity of Richard Roe,
"Fur Seal of the Bering Sea," "Car
and Culture of Men," "Ulrich vo
Hutten," "The Stability of Truth," a
"War and Waste."
Cornell Backs Trust in Splendid Con
dition to Win Laurels of
the East
Ithaca, N. Y., Oct. 22.-Hopeful o
beating Harvard, and convinced tha
they can force the champion Crimsoi
team into a real struggle for footbal
honors, Cornell's squad of 26 footbal
players, led by Head Coach Sharpe
Dan Reed, Ray Van Orman and Jaci
Moakley, left here yesterday for Cam
bridge. In addition to the regula
Varsity team Coach Sharpe took wit]
him 15 substitutes, composing th
most formidable football squad t
leave this city in many years.
The Ithacans are in splendid condi
tion for the Harvard battle, and whil
coaches and players realize that the
are to meet an eleven which has no
suffered a defeat in three years, they
are undismayed. In fact, such is th
football material in the Cornell squad
this fall and so powerful has the of
fense proved itself to be in the four
games that have been played to date
that a Cornell victory is not regarded
as out of the question. At all event
Cornell hopes to give Harvard a tes
such as she has not experienced in a
long time.
This is one of the most powerfu
Cornell teams on record. From tackle

to tackle the forwards average better
than 190 pounds. The backfield is
well balanced, with Barrett and Muel-
ler weighing 185 or better, Collins
150, and Shiverick 165. The team will
average about 178 pounds.
The style of play followed by the
team to date has been almost exclu-
sively of the straight football variety
Though the eleven has a repertoire of
forward passes, few off them have
been used so far, Captain Barrett re-
lying on the running game as his
principal weapon of offense. In Bar-
rett, Cornell has one of the finest
punters in the east, while Shiverick
is also a kicker of no mean ability.

Appointments of an important na-
ture and the determination of several
decisive policies marked the first
meeting of the Y. M. C. A. central
cabinet in charge of N. Earl Pinney,
'16, president of the Students' Chris-
tian association. Pinney has con-
sented to take over the duties of Lewis
Reimann, '16, president of the "Y,"
until the football season is over.
Midar W. Welsh, '17, was made the
new president of the literary college
Y. M. C. A. to succeed Scott Wester-
man, '17, whose resignation was a-
cepted at the same meeting. Charge
of the Sunday night meetings, which
commence October 31 in University
hall, was given over temporarily to
Whitely Moore, '18E.
Tentative plans for the new "Y"
building, prepared by Prof. John R.
t Allen, were submitted for considera-
t tion. Prof. Allen left yesterday for
Chicago to confer with the architect,
W A. Otis, on the final plans.
Departmental presidents were given
s official sanction to proceed with their
T own plans for the organization of a
- "Y" membership campaign in their
9 respective departments. Although
s there still remain some 30 blocks that
e have not been canvassed, and though
- the faculty have not been approached,
1 the membership is near the 1,000
a mark. It is estimated that when the
e approaching supplementary campaign
is completed the mark will easily be
c raised to higher than that of previous
e years.
-Princeton Scrubs Meet Wall in Varsity
e Princeton, N. J., Oct. 22.-Coach
n Wright of the scrubs stacked his men
d up against the Varsity today in a
practice of forward passes and open
plays which lasted fully an hour.
Tackling was not allowed, but each
man was made responsible for his op-
ponent. Toward the end of the prac-
tice the scrubs found it almost im-
possible to complete a pass against
the defense of Rush's men. A short
secret signal drill was held later on
the old University field, in which spe-
cial attention was paid to the new

Editor The Michigan Daily:
k I was much surprised to read this
- morning that the junior engineers had
r elected their officials. I was kept by
h studies from attending the nomina-
e tion meeting so I did not know when
o the electiou would be held.
There was no announcement of the
- election in The Daily yesterday, and
e if there were any notices on the bul-
y letin boards I did not see them, al-
t though everything may have been car-
Sried out in a perfectly honorable man-
e ner, still a sufficient number of no-
d tices should have been published so
- that nobody would be kept from vot-
r ing through ignoranc of the election.
Many with whom I discussed the
3 election yesterday were of the impres-
s sion that it was to be carried out dur-
t ing the assembly Thursday, and I feel
certain that the vote cast yesterday
does not represent over 50 per cent
1 of the class.

e I think that the student council,
which has charge of the elections,
should see that notices are published.
- Would it not be easy to hold a nom-
ination meeting at an impossible time
I and at the first available moment af-
terward, the election? And would it
not be easy to elect by this means
some very undesirable man to office?
. This last paragraph is no reflection
f on the present junior engineering of-
ficials as I know little about them.

"Coming back to Michigan from
commercial life, after an absence of
nearly fifteen years, I am above all
else impressed by the fact that, in
Ann Arbor at least, education of the
head seems to have reacted favorably
on the heart, as evidenced by a fine
and matter-of-course courtesy on the
part of the teachers, students and
town." This rely was given a Mich-
igan Daily reporter when he inquired
of Prof. John C. Parker, '01, new head
of the electrical engineering depart-
ment of the engineering college, con-
cerning his impressions of Michigan's
campus after an absence of about 15
Proessor Parker is a member of the
American Society of Civil Engineers,
the American Society of Mechanical
Engineers, the Rochester Engineering
Society, and is a fellow in the Amer-
ican Institute of Electrical Engineers.
He comes to Michigan from a posi-
tion at the head of the Rcheser Rail-
way & Light Co., of Rochester, N. Y.
Professor Parker had this to say
further: "Surely Michigan is doing
a great thing if, while she teaches us
facts and use of our mental faculties,
she sends out into the world men
whose hearts are right, whose right-
ness of sentiment shows itself in those
niceties of conduct that must come
from the social -instinct of kindliness
rather than from books of rules.
"To many men this may seem a
little thing. To me, even coming from
a city of high ideals such as charac-
terize Rochester, it seems as big as
it is rare and well worthy of cherish-
ing. In such values lie the bigness
of a $eople or an institution, and in
them, as elsewhere, Michigan seems
big and, better yet, growing.
"That the external millinery of the
institution has not softened the fibre
of the men is rather apparent. I do
not seem to have found a great num-
her of callow youth among the stu-
dents--indeed, for straightforward,
thinking men of initiative Michigan's
student body leaves nothing to be
feared in comparison with any group
of men of considerable maturity else-
Mr. S. W. Beakes Explains Attitude on
National Woman Suffrage
to 75 Visitors
Suffragists from all parts of the sec-
ond congressional district, numbering
all together about 75 women, called
on Congressman S. W. Beakes at his
home yesterday afternoon and asked
his support of the federal amendment
which would give women the right to
He explained, after hearing the
ladies' arguments, that he favored
woman suffrage as a state issue, but
not as a national issue and could not
pledge his support to the national
"I am in favor of woman suffrage,"
said Congressman Beakes in reply,
"and voted for it when it came
up in the state of Michigan. The
only point upon which the ladies, who

are prestnt, and I differ is the method
in bringing it about. I believe the
question is one for the states to set-
tle individually and not for the na-
tional Congress.
Several ladies spoke at this time,
setting forth arguments in favor of
dealing with suffrage as a national
matter, but did not succeed in chang-
ing the congressman's opinion.

Beginning this morning, students
in elementary geology will take their
first excursion of the year. The trip
planned will involve a short walk to
geological points of interest in and
about the city. The hike will con-t
sume only the morning hours, on ac-
count of the M. A. C. game.
The trip will serve as the first of<
a series of excursions which will take
the members of the classes to Dexter,
River Rouge, Rawsonville, Sibleyt
quarries, Whitmore Lake, Ypsilanti
and Put-in-Bay, which is consideredr
to be one of the most extensive of
the group. The course will be held
every Saturday until Thanksgiving,
and is designed to teach the average;
student how to interpret simple phe-t
nomena that surrounds him.
The board of regents, at its meet-I
ing on October 15, set aside $5,067 for4
remodelling and $1,580 for re-equip-
ping the south wing of University hall,
which is being made ready for the
department of romance languages.'
Two of the rooms on the top floor,
will be given over to the department
of landscape design.
The south wing has been given over
to the sciences in the past, but with,
the opening of the new science build-
ing the sciences have moved into their
own building.
