FOUR CLASSES TO BALLOT
Resolutions, if Passed, to Be Given
Tri l at Coming Semester
A vote on the proposed honor system
for the college of engineering will be
taken at special meetings of the four
engineering classes Friday morning.
The assemblies were requested by the
honor committee and were granted
and are backed by Dean Mortimer E.
Cooley and the faculty members in
charge of the class assemblies.
The assemblies will all 'e held in
room 348 of the Engineering building
as follows: freshmen, at 8 o'clock;
juniors, at 9 o'clock; seniors, at 10
o'clock; sophomores, at 11 o'clock. At
each meeting a member of the honor
committee will be present and will sub-
mit the new proposed honor system as
embodied by the following declaration
We, students of the college of en-
gineering, in order to establish the
highest ideals of integrity and honor,
subscribe to the following principles:
I. It is neither honest nor fair to
*his fellow students for any student to
receive aid in a written quiz or exam-
II. It is desirable that the preven-
tion of dishonesty in examinations be
in the hands of the students rather
than of the faculty.
III. It is the duty of all students
to uphold these principles in word and
In witness whereof we have here-
unto set our names.
The above plan, if passed at the
meetings, will be presented to the fac-
ulty at the meeting on Saturday with
a petition tnat it be given a trial at
the coming examinations. Since the
faculty will base its opinion to a
large extent on the number who sign,
it is requested by the honor committee
that every class member turn out.

Wilson Asks Aid
for Stricken Jews
TI 4)1J y St I'ide for Contributions to
lel 19,010,00 Europeans
Rined by War
President Wilson has set aside to-
day as the day upon which the peo-
ple of the United States are asked to
make contributions for the aid of the
stricken Jews of war-torn Europe.
Contributions for this city and vicin-
ity will be received by Prof. I. Leo
Sharfman, of 1607 South University
avenue, or by Felix M. Warburg, 52
William street, New York city
According to the President's proc-
lamation, there are 9,000,000 Jews in
Europe, the greater portion of whom
are without food, shelter or clothing.
Millions have been driven from their
homes without warning, deprived of
an opportunity to make provision for
the most elementary wants. It is for
these sufferers that the people of the
United States are asked to provide.

ORATORS TO STAGE

h1OUSE" AT 8:00 O'LOCK
N, E. PINNEY TAKES TITLE ROLE
Ask That Audience Be Seated Prompt-
ly to Avoid All First Act
"The Servant in the House," to be
given in University hall at 8:00 o'clock
tonight under the auspices of the
Oratorical association, promises to
give the campus something different
from all previous productions. The
play is concerned with the problem of
brotherhood and weaves its plot with-
in the walls of an English country vic-
Prof. R. D. T. Hollister, who has
been directing the plays within the
last few years, gave out the following
statement in regard to this year's pro-
duction: "The play is something en-
tirely different from anything we have
ever put on, and offers an excellent op-
portunity for good acting, and I believe
the cast members have taken advan-
tage of that opportunity. Those who
have never seen the play ought not
to miss this opportunity."
The leading role is taken by N. E.
Pinney, '16, who represents "The Serv-
ant in the House," and who finally un-
folds his identity. The vicar, M. S. Mc-
Lean, '16, plays an important part in
the play, and his church . troubles
and family connections give him con-
stant worry. The part of the "drain
man" gives the entire play a humor-
ous touch and balances the more seri-
ous parts of the production.
The audience is requested to be seat-
ed promptly at 8:00 o'clock, when the
curtains will be raised. This re-
quest is important, since the opening
scene of the play is one of the essen-
tial links in the story to be woven.
Seats will continue to be on sale
at Wahr's from 3:00 to 5:00 o'clock
thiA afternoon and beginning at 6:45
o'clock at University hall tonight.

Most Important Pro-
' "Engineering and medicine have
been, and are today, the two most im-
portant professions concerned with
the development of civilization," said
Dean Victor C. Vaughan, of the medi-
cal school, at the fresh assembly yes-
terday. Dean Vaughan pointed out
the benefits that this generation is
receiving due to the co-operation of
the engineer and the doctor, and by
citing history showed how the Greeks
and Romans were unable to succeed
because of the lack of the latter.
It was announced during the busi-
ness meeting that the group leaders
will get together on Thursday, Feb-
ruary 18, for the purpose of discuss-
ing any issues concerning social and
other class activities.
Plans for the J-Hop concert to be
given Friday afternoon, February 11,
from 4 to 5 o'clock, by the combined
Glee and Mandolin clubs have been so
enlarged that the entertainment will
be given in Hill auditorium instead of
in University hall as was originally
intended. The change has been made
in order that a larger audience may
be accommodated and on account of
the superior acoustic qualities and
more attractive appearance of the au-
Several changes in the program have,
been made, the most important altera-
tion being that the Midnight Sons'
quartet, so popular at the Novelty
Concert given in December, will take
the place of the Varsity quartet. The
members of the Midnight Sons' quar-
tet are P. A. Hartesveldt, '16, Harry
Kerr, '16, W. S. Westermann, '17, and
Harry Carlson, '17.
The concert will be especially wel-
comed by students attending the J-
Hop as providing an entertainment for
guests arriving early Friday afternoon.

weeks of its trial.
