A NEW DEPARTTIE
An event of special interest to the
self-supporting Michigan man is to
take place on Wednesday at 2:30 P.
M. at the parlors of the Congrega-
tional church. We refer to the very in-
teresting demonstration which is to
be held by the Aluminum Cooking
Utensil company. At this time a
luncheon will be prepared in "Wear-
ever" utensils, and the manufacture,
care and use of aluminum utensils
fully explained. We earnestly request
all wide awake Michigan nien who
wish to earn enough money to carry
them through a whole school year to
be present at this demonstration that
you may then go out and do like-
Last summer twenty-fouraMichigan
men sold five thousand dollars' worth
of "Wearever." Are you an average
man? If you are we want you to sell
"Wearever" utensils this summer. We
have no doubt put more young men
through college than any other one
institution in the country. Our plan
of demonstration acquaints you with
the prominent ladies of the commun-
ity and eliminates the drudgery of the
old-fashioned house to house, back

1875; A uthority on Soils of
FIRST IN CHARGE OF GEOLOGY
Professor Eugene Waldemar Hil-
gard, professor of agriculture in the
University of California since 1875,
died January 8, in his eighty-fourth
With the title of professor of ge-
ology and natural history, he was
professor at the University of Michi-
gan from 1873 to 1875, the first man
to be placed in charge of the teach-
ing in geology there. He was follow-
ed by Professor Alexander Winchell,
who died in 1891, by Professor I. C.
Russell from 1892-1896, and by Pro-
fessor Wm. H. Hobbs, since 1906.
Professor Hilgard was one of the
foremost authorities upon soils, es-
pecially those of the arid and semi-
arid regions. He was a member of
many learned societies, including the
National Academy of Science.
The University of Michigan confer-;
red upon him the degree of LLD. in
1887. It will interest some to know
that Dr. Vaughan, now Dean of the
Medical Department, was formerly as-
sistant in geology to Dr. Hilgard.

The Michigan Engineering Society
will open its annual meeting at Grand
Rapids today. The session will
last three days, of which two days will
be devoted to the reading of several
technical papers. An inspection trip
of various engineering plants in the
vicinity of Grand Rapids will termin-
ate the convention. A banquet and
other social functions will be held in
honor of the delegates, during their
stay in Grand Rapids.
To facilitate the reading of papers
on so many divergent subjects, . the
meeting will be divided into eleven
sections, each of which will deal with
one particular phase of engineering.
Three of the divisions will be pre-
sided over by members of the faculty
of the engineering college, while sev-
en of the papers to be read will be
contributed by faculty men. This
showing indicates the importance of
Michigan's engineering college in
every branch of the profession.
The mechanical and electrical en-
gineering section will have as chair-
man Prof. John R. Allen, and under
this subdivision Prof. J. C. Parker
will read a paper on "Marginal Eco-
nomics" and Prof. C. H. Fessenden
will speak on "Modern Boiler Prac-.
These papers will be discussed and
in view of the fact that they are the
only two papers to be read in this
section, the discussion will probably
be unusually interesting.
The sanitary engineers will hear
Prof. W. C. Hoad on "The Uses and
Abuses of Streams in Sewage Dis-
posal," while Prof. A. J. Decker will
give an illustrated lecture on "Sew-
Mr. Cox of the civil engineering de-
partment will preside over the
"Roads" section, and Prof. H. B. Mer-,
rick of the same department will be
chairman of the discussion on "Plat-
ting and Topographical Surveying."l
Prof. Merrick has also collaborated
with Prof. H. H. Atwell in prepara-.<
tion of a paper on "The MichiganI
Plat Law." A paper by Prof. C. T.I
Johnston on "The Status of Engineers
and Engineering in Michigan" will
likewise be read at this time.
"Practical Methods of Measuring
Flowing Water," will be discussed by
Mr. C. 0. Wisler in the hydro-electric
group. This completes Michigan's
representation of speakers at the con-

Memorial to Richard N. Hall,
,11.,12, Feature Issue
Containing a. discussion of the mili-
tary training situation in the Univer-
sity, and an interrogative article re-
garding Michigan athletics, the Janu-
ary issue of the Alumnus is off the
press. The frontispiece is a cut of
the design accepted for the new li-
brary. Elsewhere in the book are
given the architect's plans and a de-
tailed description of the building.
The edition contains a memorial to'
Richard Neville Hall, "11-'12, who was
killed Christmas morning while serv-
ing in the French Ambulance corps.
A brief resume of his life is given, to-
gether with a tribute to the splendid
character of the man. Letters writ-
ten by him to his parents are quoted
at some length. The edition is one of

The writer firmly believes that cur-
rent reading carefuiy and definitely
assigned would have great value in'
the class rooms of this university. If
some broad, authoratative, monthly
magazine covering impartially the
field of current history and politics
could be introduced as a collateral
text book into our .1istory, Political
Science and Economics courses, much+
would be addedto the value of these
courses. Such a magazine would not
l come often enough to lprove a serious
distraction to the other work of the
class, and it woulI sive a sufficiently
long time view io insure the accuracy
needed for class room use. Such a
procedure would not only enable in-
structors to assign articles which
would illustrate in a pratical manner
the theories obtained from text hooks,
but would at he same time give stn-
deiits the t~orto unity ond the inco-eu
tive to inforn tlnmselves on the cur-
ent hawpenios of he day. It will
also give vitality to our rhetoric and
oratory courses -and add a distinctive
spirit of progressiveness to our uni-
i ver sincerely believe that suck a
system could be very well introduced
into this university.

PLAYERS FAIL TO SHOW
Participants Absent Selves from Union
Bridge Tournament; May Stay in
by Makinig Uip Games
The bridge players have responded
very well to the call for participants
in the annual Union bridge tourna-
ment but they have failed to show up
for play in the needed numbers to
make the tournament a success. Up
to the time for starting Friday night
some twenty couples had signed, but
only ten of these were on hand to play
off their games. Those who did not
show up Friday still have a chance to
stay in the running by making up
their lost games next Friday, but if
they fail to appear then, they will
have to be thrown out of the contest.
T'Ie failure of some of the players
to show up will not delay the work-
ing out of the schedule, and it will be
finished by February 28, which will be
the second day of play after the se-
mster starts. There will be no games
luring examnination or hop weeks, but
they will start. up again the first Fri-
day of next semester. No contestants
are eliminated during the play but the
points of all are held until the final
day. The winners of last year's con-
test have enrolled in this year's tour-
