Dr,. Jehn 0. Reed, formnerly dean
of the literary college and head of
the physics department, died late Sat-
urday night al the home of his brother,
Dr. A W. Reed, in Cleveland.
While Di. Reed has been i snce
suffering a complete breakdown four
vears ago, the news of his death was
a shock to his many friends in Ann
ArLor. Hardening of the arteries is
given as the cause. Dr. Reed com-
plained of a headache Saturday, and;
this increased in severity until he
Post consciousness, death following
shortly afterward.
In the summer of 1914 Dr. Reed
went to Germany to be treated by spe-
cialists. A few months later he re-
signed the office of dean of the liter-
ary college, which position he had
held since 1907. He returned to this
country, and, after a long rest in
Louisiana, came north last July to the
home of his brother.

18K2 he became a member of the uni-
\ crsiy faculty, remaining here until
his collapse in 1914.
Had Varied Career
Before entering the university of
Michigan as a student Dr. Reed taught
school in Indiana, so his entire career
as a teacher extends over 37 years. In
addition to this, he was dean of the
summer session from 1904 till 1907.
Dr. Reed also did a great deal of
writing. He collaborated with former
rean Guthe and with Professor IHen-
derson, beside writing one book alone
and contributing to many scientific
publications. He received the chair
of physics in 1905 and the directorship
of the physical laboratory in 1907. He
also became dean of the literary col-
lege. He was a member of the Ameri-
can Physical society and a fellow of
the American Association for the Ad-
vancement of Science.
Dr. Reed was 59 years old and leaves
a daughter besides his widow. The
former, Hester Reed, is a student in

London, Jan. 24.-In an interview
given here today David Lloyd George,
minister of munitions, declared that
England is preparing to deliver a blow
that must be felt by Germany.
He balled attention to the organiza-
tion of one of- the world's greatest
armies by England in addition to her al-
ready overpowering fleet. England, he
said, has undergone an industrial re-
organization as well. ,
According to Lloyd George, Britain,
as a nation, has not been equipped
for war, but is now in fighting trim.
He is confident of the outcome of the

An honor system that is new and
unique is to be tried by the engineers
as a result of the movement for such
a plan in that department.
As indicated last week at a meeting
of all four engineering classes, the
students are strongly in favor of a
system that does not include a writ..
ten pledge appended to each examina-
tion paper. The paragraph which .was
s, strongly objected to reads as follows:
"I pledge my word of honor that in
this exercise I have not received dis-
honest assistance of any kind."
(Signature). ,
"Art. 1, Sec. 3. 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 report-
ed by the examiner to the honor com-
mittee for investigation. If he still
refuses to sign, his refusal shall bet
taken as direct evidence of dishonesty
and he will be punished as hereinafterr
Not only the students but the facul-
ty as well are interested in the dis-
cussion as evidenced by the following
remarks made by Dean Mortimer E.,
Conley when interviewed today:
"I believe that no honor systemI
will work that does not spring from
the student body, is not upheld and1
enforced by them. I am sure that the
proper honor system will work here
and I assure you of the hearty co-op-4
eration of faculty."
The honor committee is to meet to-t
night at 7:00 o'clock in the engineer-
iig society rooms to discuss the final,
plans, which will appear in tomorrow's
Alumnus and Former Botany Assist.
ant Worked in Sumatra With

News of the death in Hong Kong,
China, of Harold Pound, alumnus and
assistant in botany, was received here
yesterday afternoon. Tropical fever {
was the cause of death. For the past
two years Mr. Pound was director of
the laboratories of the United States
Rubber company at Kiseran, Asalran,
Sumatra, where Prof. Henri T. Hus of
the botany department, who is away
on leave of absence, is now working.
It was through Mr. Pound that Prof.

the great western plains. The cow-
boy, the audience learned, is not the
wild, lawless person we see in the
motion pictures, but a man whose life
is often more perfect than those near-

Professor Lomax illustrated his re-
marks by singing and reciting a great
number of ballads from his collection,
the audience joining him in some of
the more familiar tunes.
Court Holds Income Tax Law Valid
Washington, Jan. 24.-The income
tax law is constitutional. The supreme

Appeals to Students to Systematize
Their Tasks and Concentrate
While Working
In his address to the fresh lit class
in University hall yesterday after-
noon, Prof. C. O. Davis emphasized
certain points of efficiency for his hear-
ers to follow, if they would get the
most from their college life.
"First," he said, "the student must
routinize his work. In that way it can
be handled with the least amount of
energy. A schedule of hours posted
up, to account for most of his waking
moments, will help the student won-
derfully, if he follows it strictly."
Continuing, Prof. Davis said that he
had always considered these mottoes
good ones, "Crowd your work, or your
work will crowd you," and "Work
while you work and play while you
play." "A half hour's good concentra-
tion is worth more than four which
are spent in dawdling over the same
amount of work. The best aid to con-
centration is good physical condition.
A man simply can't work at his best
when his brain is cloudy and muddy."
Owing to the neglect of the commit-
tee in charge of arrangements to have
a piano placed on the stage, the All-
Fresh Glee club failed to render sev-
eral selections which they had pre-
pared for the assembly.
At the close of the address, a busi-
ness meeting was held, in which it was
decided to hold a dance directly after
the examinations at which the fresh-
men from all departments were to be
admitted, upon payment of a small
admission fee. A call was issued for
basketball tryouts.
iMachines Collide on Liberty Street
The machine of Dr. Rominger of 423

early yesterday evening by a collision
with another car. The front axle of
the doctor's car was bent.


Representatives of Parties Draw for1
Places Tomorrow; Decorations t
Must Be Simple
Holders of J-Hop tickets who had
not as yet arranged for booth sharers,
met at the Union last night and madej
up the balance of their parties of
Since there may be some who did
not attend the meeting last night, who
have not as yet joined a booth party,
these men should attend the meeting
to be held Wednesday night at 8:00
o'clock at the Union, at which time
also all representatives of those groups
which have already formed will draw
for choice of booths. The men who
do not join some booth party by
Wednesday night will be left without
booth accommodations on the night1
of the Hop.
The representatives of groups al-
ready formed who come to the meeting
to draw for booths on Wednesday
night, are asked to bring the green
booth tickets, properly signed, of each
member of the party which they rep-
resent. There will be no choice of
booths as to size, as they will be uni-
form in this respect, and location will
be the only matter to be decided.
Each party will take care of the
furnishings of its particular booth. No
decorations other than those which are
representative of the university will
be permitted. The chief things to
be furnished for each booth are punch
bowls, punch glasses, a plate for
wafers and cakes, a stand for the
punch bowl, chairs for the party and
other furniture which may be desired.
Arrangements should be made by each
party to have its booth completely
furnished by 2:00 o'clock sharp on
the day of the Hop, and the next day
everything should be taken out.

Students who have Lad previ-
ous experience in military train.
ing will have an opportunity to
report the extent of their knowl-
edge at the Union at 7:00 o'clock
this evening before the Senate
Committee on Military Train-
If training should be intro.
duced at the University, a diffi-
culty would arise during the
first year in that no quota of
cadet officers would become an-
tomatically available, and it is
to provide for this difficulty that
the entire committee will be
present to consider the experi-
ence of undergraduates, wheth-
er in university, military school,
summer camp, national guard
or other service.

Most mnportant Albanian City (Aives
IUp Without Struggle; German Air
Lilan Flies Above Dover
New York, Jan. 24.-The German
fleet, with the heaviest new battleships
armed with 17.8 inch guns, far out-
ranging the guns of the British, and
escorted by a fleet of Fokker aero-
planes and Zeppelins, armed with new
pneumatic guns capable of firing ar-
mor-piercing projectiles, will soon ap-
pear in the North sea to give battle
to the British, according to Thomas R.
MacMechean, aeronautical engineer,
and president of the Aeronautical So-
ciety of America.-
Mr. MacMechean said today that the
basis of his prediction is from sources
of authoritative information in Ger-
many. The time of the German naval
dash from the Kiel canal will be fixed
mainly by the results of the testing
of the new engines of destruction from
the air.
The weapon will be tried out, the
engineer confidently asserted, within
two or three weeks in a monster raid
by Zeppelins on London.
This statement in view of the re-
sumption of the air raids on London
by German aeroplanes and Zeppelins
assumes somewhat the nature of a
prophecy as to the next step that the
Teutonic allies may take. The German
fleet as a whole has been practically
useless during most of the war, due to
its being bottled up in the Kiel canal
by the ever-present threat of the more
powerful British fleet.

Mr. Pound entered the university in
1907. He stayed until 1910 when he
accepted a position with thewGeneral
Rubber company. While with them
he went on explorations into the in-
terior of South America.
He then came north and entered
McGill university in Montreal, where
he graduated three years ago. After,
doing construction work in Mexico he
went to Sumatra to his last position.
Mr. Pound was 28 years old, and
was a member of the local chapter
of the Delta Upsilon fraternity.
