ITE SUNDAY A DESS
Y. 1. C. A. Holds Evening Meeting in
Arcade Theatre Following
Willard Beahan, chief engineer of
the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern
railroad, will speak at the "Y" meet-
ing Sunday evening at '6:30 o'clock in
the Arcade theatre.
In addition to shifting the place of
the meeting from University Hall to
the Arcade theatre, the committee in
charge has arranged for free moving
pictures, which will begin at 6:10
o'clock. Mr. Beahan will speak Sun-
day night on "The New Beatitude."
Besides being a prominent railroad
official and well known in engineering
circles, Mr. Beahan has gained a repu-
tation as a lecturer. In order to make
the Sunday meeting especially inter-
esting, a special musical program is

The necessity for connecting the'
"help wanted" letters with the "posi-
tions wanted" letters is the cause for
the employment bureau which is being
installed inathetengineering college.
In the past' the letters, from con-
cerns, who are looking for men have
been promiscuously circulated around
the department until someone discov-
ered the man for the job. In the new
system the letters as well as a com-
plete record of all the alumni will be
kept in a central office and will be on
file for inspection at all times.
A committee in charge of the bureau
is composed of: Prof. H. C. Sadler,
chairman; Prof. J. A. Bursley, secre-
tary and executive officer; Prof. H.
E. Riggs, Prof. J. R. Allen, Prof. A. H.
White and Prof. John C. Parker.
All Applicants to Be Catalogued.
In order that the letters from the
concerns which are looking.for a man
may receive prompt attention, a filing
system of all alumni has been devised
which will give all the facts concern-
ing the particular alumnus who is be-
ing investigated. Cards about 5 x 8
inches, contain such information as
name, birthdate, birthplace, class, ad-
dress, scholastic record and discipline
In addition space is provided for re-
marks by the faculty as to the stu-
dent's "reliability," "initiative," "neat-
ness," "disposition," "resourcefulness,"
"executive ability," "personal appear-
ance," "habits." In a corner of the
card a space is left for a photograph
of the man which will be clipped from
the Michiganensian. Records of his
college activity will be taken from
the same source. "Member of what
professional societies" is the last item
appearing on the card. On the re-
verse side is a record of the man since

Fire Partially Destroys Local Store.
Fire which broke out at 2:30 o'clock
Tuesday morning at Myles' Cloth
shop, kept the firemen busy for two
hours and resulted in considerable
damage to the building and contents.
The exact cause of the fire has not
been aso-ertained, but indications point
to a lighted cigar or cigarette. Mr.
F. W. Myles, the proprietor, had re-
turned the evening before from his
Christmas vacation, and had been in
the store about 9:30 o'clock, and had
remained until 10 o'clock, when he
locked up and went home.
Two members of the family living
on the second floor had narrow es-
capes from suffocation, when their
retret was cut off by the smoke and
flames. Firemen pushed their way
up te stair and brought the uncon-
scious victims down the ladder in
front of the building.
The principal damage resulted to
the building itself, the entire front
haing been demolished, and the stock
of goods, including a number of suits
belonging to students, left there dur-
ing vacation. The building and con-
tents were covered by insurance to-
