Iddles Are Entertained; Sorority
Will Help Aged Inmates of
Old Ladies' Home
"An unqualified success," is the ex-
ression used by the Good Fellow
dibor of The Daily, in speaking of
ae results attained by the fraternity'
anvass for clothes, books and other
seful articles yesterday. In all, about
) houses were visited, and as one of
ie collectors puts it, "about enough
othes were gathered to dress the
hole population of Ann Arbor for a
arty." The canvass will be continued
day and any organizations which
specially desire the auto men to call
re asked to get into communication
ith the Good Fellows at 1132.
One fraternity has taken a novel
ay to spread Good Fellow cheer. The
ife of the house porter has been sick
r a long time and word was re-
Mved recently by her husband that
ae would have to undergo an opera-
on if she hoped to get well. The
hapter took up a collection yester-
ay and with the even hundred dol-
.rs realized the operation will be
ade possible for the invalid.
Still another type of Good Fellow
ork yesterday was in the form of
nners, clothes and toys given to two
'oups of boys by two other local fra-
rnities. The "kiddies" were enter-
ined at a turkey dinner and, after
,ing fitted out with clothes, they were

A sorority, in a letter to the Good

Jeffries, Joppe and Jefra are com-
manders-in-chief of the French
armies. Von Bethmann-Hollweg is
the head of the German navy, ambas-
sador to the United States, German
Minister of Finance, Iron Chancellor
of Germany and the leader of the
Reichstag. The Prime Minister of
England is Lord George, a one-armed
general of France, Winston Churchill,
and Lord North. Montenegro is bound-
.ed by Austria, Germany, France, Italy,
the Bulgarian states and "perhaps"
Belgium. Salonika is in Russia, Tur-
key and Asia Minor. The capital of
Bulgaria is Bucharest, Budapest and
These are only a few of the answers
received by Mr. Phillip Bursley, of the
French department, Jin reply to a
series of questions given to his
French classes. Only one student out
of 87 enrolled in Mr. Bursley's courses
turrf in a paper with a mark as high
as 80 per cent. The average for the
entire number was only 38.4 per cent.
The men surpassed the women in
every class, in one class the men av-
eraging 53 per cent and the women
only 26.8. Venezelos was a "brain-,
wracker" for the majority. He was.
named as being an Austrian general,'
President of Mexico, President of
Spain, and President of Cuba. Field
Marshal von Hindenburg came next
on the list. According to a number
of papers he is ruler of Canada, an
English earl, and commander of the
German armies in the West. Field
Marshal French is a Dutch painter,r
Emperor of Germany and an officer
in the French arnly. Vivant was de-
scribed as being Viceroy of Canada,t
English ambassador to Greece, a poet,
and the English chancellor. Salandra
is a Frenchman, a Turk, and a city
in Serbia.
However the climax to this apal-
ling display of ignorance came in the
request to answer the question con-
cerning the rulers of the belligerent
nations.' Wilhelm III and Frederick
II are Emperors of Germany. Greece
is ruled by King George, Constantine
II and III and Christianus. The sov-
ereign of Servia is Peter the Great
and Ferdinand. The King of Italy is
Manuel, Alphonse, and Frederick IV..




Ignace Paderewski, the distinguished
Polish pianist, will give the fourth of
the pre-festival concerts in Hill audi-

Owing to his patriotic spirit and sin-
cere feeling for his countrymen,
Paderewski is devoting his energies
almost exclusively to relieving the
terrible conditions in Poland. Con-
sequentlyl, he will be heard in only a
few of the large cities in this country
and his engagement here will un-
doubtedly be his only appearance in

'One of the most ambitious numbers
of the Michigan Technic ever issued
went on sale yesterday in the engi-

approach perfection in the selection
of material, but also in its makeup,

Especially of interest to all students
will be an article entitled, "Engineer-
ing Ethics and Opportunity," by James
R. Bibbins. This consists of extracts
from an address delivered by Mr.
Bibbins at the annual banquet of Tau

department,. contributes "Some Ne-
glected Factors in Determining a Rea-
sonable Rate of Return for. Public

importance of securing eflicient man-
agement and gives figures which bear
out his contention.
"Qualities That Make an Executive,"
by James H. Marks, '08E, superintend-
ent of buildingstand grounds, is a
very readable article and is also ably:
Prof. John C. Parker, '01E, head of
the electrical engineering department,
contributes an article on "Automatic
Power Control."
"The Observatory of La Plata," by
Prof. W. J. Hussey, director of the
observatory, is quite 'an interesting'
account of the work done by Prof.
H-ussey in the Argentine observatory.
Among the otherarticles which go
to make up this excellent issue are:
"The Necessity for Military Prepara-

Glasier, the boy's stepfather, ap-
poared before Justice W. G. Doty yes-
terday morning, and pleaded guilty to
the charge against him. He told a
tale so revolting in nacure that it is
unfit to publish. Before imposing sen-
tence Justice Doty gave Glasier a se-
vere reprimand, stating that he could
hardly conceive of a man being so
brutal and inhuman to a defenseless
child. The court se'ntenced the pris-
over to pay a fine of $50.00 and costs,
amounting to $4.25, in default of which
he was commit'ed to the county jail
for 60 days.

home of her son, Herman Steinke,'

of her death were unusual, since

"Th so camps have now been in
operation for three successive sum-
iers. In their growth and admirable
management during the past two sum-
mers of 1914 and 1915 they have
more than fulfilled the expectations
of those endorsing them, based on the
first year's experience in the summer
of 1913. The camps of 1913 and 1914
were held before the breaking out
of the great war abroad, which has
brought into greater prominence than
before their value to the nation.
"We repeat the hearty endorsement
given in our reports on the camps
held in 1913 and 1914. This year they
were visited by a number of the mem-
bers of our committee, and the com
mittee as a whole has given atten-
tion and thought to their educational
usefulness in the summer season.
"The students attending are under
careful oversight. The excellence of
good sanitation and medical care has
been well maintained. The students
have an ideal five weeks' outing,
pleasurable and beneficial to them,
and the instruction, drill, cavalry
exercises, field maneuvres, field sur-
veying and field work. generally, give
them in the continuous five weeks
training an insight into military mat-
ters. They are, in addition to this
regular work, given ample time for
recreation and rest.
""e commend the camps to the
authorities and students of the Uni-
versities and Colleges of the country.
We believe that the training and in-
struction which the students attend-
ing receive not only emphasize the
dangers and losses of wars lightly
and unpreparedly entered into, but
we also believe that ;the training
given is excellent, and a great bene-
fit, mental and physical, to the stu-

Prof. James W. Glover, of the math-

greater part of his Christmas vaca-
tian in Washington, D. C., working on
the new life tables that are being pre-
pared by the Federal government.
The life tables bear upon vital sta-
tistics of the various classes of pop-
ulation in the United States. Prof.
Glover is in charge of a special vol-
ume on this subject which will be
issued by the Bureau of Census some
time this year.
The tables are used to a great ex-
tent by life insurance companies.
They are compiled from thousands of
cases and estimate to a day the life
of the average citizen from the time
he is one month old till he reaches
the half century mark.
