Michigan Varsity debaters will meet
Norwestern University in Hill audi-
torium, and Chicago University, in
Mandel Hall, Chicago, Friday, Jan.
21. The present indications, the con-
ing contests will be among the hardest
fought that Michigan has ever taken
part in. The Michigan teams, compris-
ing W. M. Brucker, '16L, J. R. Cotton,
'16, A. J. Stoddard, '17L, on the affirm-
ative, and W. J: Goodwin, '16L, N. Kl
Pinney, '16, and P. V. Ramsdell, '16,
on the negative, have been drilliing
nightly since the Christmas vacation,
in addition to giving a portion of their
vacation to the work.
The question to be debated this
year is: "Resolved, that Congress
should impose the literacy test on all
European immigrants." This is the
question that has repeatedly engaged
the attention of Congress. Three times
the substance of this measure has been
enacted, and three times vetoed by
the President, first by President Cleve-
land, second by President Taft, and
last by President Wilson, so that there
is no dearth of good authority on either
Additional interest attaches to this
event because it is the first debate
held in Hill auditorium and also the
first one to be held under the new
status of the Oratorical association.
Every student is allowed free admis-
sion to the debate, only being required
to present the Oatorical association
ticket which he received at the first of
die year with his athletic book.

BOILER ACCIDENT KILLS THREE
Rolland-American Steamer Suffers In-
London, Jan 18.-The Holland-Amer-
ican steamship Ryndan arrived at
Gravesend, 20 miles down the river,
this afternoon, having suffered at sea
from internal accident in which three
of her stokers were killed and four
injured. Its nature was not disclosed
but it is supposed that it was a boiler
explosion of some sort. No passengers
The ship was down by the bow and
listed badly to starboard. She was
first sighted off Sound End, proceeding
slowly, and she came to Gravesend
under her own steam. The earlier
reports were that she had been tor-
pedoed but these later were laid
aside. The passengers who did not
land at Falmouth will remain on board

ON ORATORICAL PLA
Mrs. Lucile Pryer, '16, and M. S. Mc-
Lean Take Roles of Vicar
TICKETS GO ON SALE MONDAY
Work on the Oratorical association
play, "The Servant in the House,"
which will be given in University hall
on Thursday evening, January 27, has
been progressing rapidly, and from all
reports this year's production will ex-
ceed all others, both in stage work
and in elaborateness.
The cast is made up principally of
students who either have taken part
11 other stage productions or have been
taking extensive courses in the uni-
versity along that line.
Two of the more prominent cast
parts are taken by Mrs. Lucile Pryer
'16, and M. S. McLean, '16. Mrs. Pry-
er, who is a member of the Lyceum
club, took part in the oratorical asso-
ciatirrn play two years ago. Her hus-
band is director of the laboratory of
the board of health in Detroit. Mrs.
Pryer has taken considerable work in
dramatics in the university. She will
play the part of the vicar's wife.
:J. S. McLean, '16, has perhaps had
more practical experience than any
other member of the cast. He has
taken minor roles under Robert Man-
tell, Julia Marlowe and E. H. Sothern.
ilefore entering the university he stud-
ied the technique of the French drama
at Paris. He has also done some
dramatic coaching. McLean plays the
role of the vicar.
Costumes for the cast will be se-
cured from the New York Costume
company. Seats, at the popular prices
of 25, 35 and 50 cents, will go on sale
at Wahr's on Monday, January 24, All
seats for the occasion will be reserved.

the direction of Prof.'R. D. T. Hol-
lister, who has successfully directed
the association, plays within the last

Vote on Honor
Comes as a Result of flvo
Years' Agitation at
Students of the College of Engineer-
ing will be given an opportunity on
Thursday to vote on a new plan for
an honor system, which reached its
final form at a meeting of the honor
committee of the engineering college
last evening. The plan in the main
follows several that have been found
to be practical in other universities.
If adopted the scheme will be the re-
sult of two years of agitation for the
use of the honor system in examina-
tions among the engineers.
The vote will be held in the class
assemblies, and from interest already
shown in the agitation it is expected
that everybody will turn out. In or-
der that class members may vote intel-
igently the committee hereby submits
the following "Constitution of the Hon-
Article I; Definition of System.
Sec. 1. This system shall be known
as the honor system of the student
body of the College of Engineering of
the University of Michigan.
Sec. 2. Definition of Violations.
Any of the following acts shall be
considered violations of the honor
system: any attempt to receive dis-
honest assistance either before the
examination or quiz begins or during
its continuance, from books, papers,
or any printed matter or written aids
whatsoever, or from any person who
has or has not completed his paper.
Sec. 3. The Pledge.
Every student shall append to his
quiz or examination paper a written
or printed declaration reading as fol-
lows: "I pledge my word of honor
that in this exercise I have not re-
ceived dishonest assistance of any
Any student who fails to place the
pledge on his paper shall be notified.
If he then refuses to make the pledge,
he shall be reported by the examiner
to the honor committee for investi-
gation. If he still refuses to sign, his
refusal shall be taken as direct evi-
dence of dishonesty, and he will be
punished as hereinafter described.
Article II. Duties of Faculty.
Section 1. The Examiner.
The instructor in charge of the quiz
or examination remains in the room
or leaves at his own option. Should
he remain he cannot act as a proctor.

Paul F. Thompson, '16L, will ict as
chairman for the Unon Forum meet-

that the npurchase of admission cards
has to date been restricted to juniors
With the announcement last night
that the entire allotment of paste-
boards had been taken up, requests
for reservations were received from
members of all classes on the campus.
Seniors and underclassmen, to whom
the sale had not yet been opened,
joined with those juniors who were
delaying until the third day before
making purchase of their tickets, in
expressing the sentiment of the
campus for a larger Hop. This de-
velopment is evidence that the J-Hop
has outgrown any narrow limitations
of which it may have been accused
in the past, and has come into its
own as the big democratic, all-uni-
versity function of the year.
