MEMORIAL HALL THIS WEEK
Through the courtesy of the Ann
Arbor Art association, an unusually
fine collection of paintings is on ex-
hibition this week at Alumni Memor-

work to the city, together with the high
insurance upon the paintings, is heavy,
but the attendance for the past two
or three days at the exhibit has been
large enough to warrant the cost.,
As an added feature of the exhibit,
Prof. H. 1.-LCross, of the fine arts de-
partment, has arranged a series of lec-
tures, the first of which will be given
at 8 o'clock Friday evening.

Announcement of the opening of the

Gift of Michigan Business .Man
This sum is the gift of a prominent
Michigan business roan who yearly ex-
pends large amounts for advertising,
and who chose this method as the best
way in which to stimulate interest in
the subject and raise the general stan-
dard of advertising excellence.
The judge for this year's competi-
tion has not yet been selected, but it
is likely that some well-known De-
troit business man will be chosen. Mr.
Ford, of the Saxon Motor company,
and Dr. Breitenbach, of the J. Walter
Thompson Advertising company, both
of Detroit, acted as judges for the two
previous years respectively.

submit (a) advertising copy or (b)
drawings for an advertisement or ()
a plan of an advertising cam paign or
(d) a discussion in essay form of
some problem in advertising, or any
or all of these may be combined. In
the case of (a) and (b), the copy or
the drawings may be accompanied by
a statement of the specific aim of

speaking, the advertisement should ex-
plain itself. The candidate must also

fect that the material submitted is

his knowledge it has not been pub-
lished in any form.
3. The choice of the ,commodity,
business, institution, etc., to be ad-
vertised, is left to the competitor, with

ted must bear an identifying device or
pseudonym and must be accompanied
by a sealed envelope containing such
device or pseudonym together with
the name of the competitor.

nalism, not later than Saturday, April

lars as the first prize and two hundred

8. The prizes shall be awarded to
the competitors who, in the opinion of
the judges, give most promise of suc-
cess in the advertising field, or show:
the greatest insight into advertising
principles and problems. It is not
intended that the prizes shall be
awarded for mere cleverness, and no
"freak" or sensational advertising will
be seriously considered.

either or both of the prizes or to re-
duce the amounts in case the judges
shall so recommend.
10. The prizes shall be awarded
within one month after the closing
of the competition.

the close of the competition become
the property of the university and
