EACH ACT A STRONG FEATURE
Fellows, Einerman, Honey. 6irls' Glee
Club All Contribute to Excel-
lent Program
From the beginning until the last
strains of the "Victors" died away, the
Band Bounce held in Hill auditorium
last night featured an unparallel suc-
cess before an audience of over 4,000
people.
The snap and punch with which the
acts followed each other character-
ized the performance throughout. The
Varsity Band was not lacking in the
spirit which won it such glory last
fall. L. B. Emerman, '18L. in his
Scotch song, and the rapid fire car-
totnig of Al Honey,'16D were well
received. The Girls' Glee club in its
act, "In Old Japan," was quite suc-
cessful.
The "All Campus Revue," a satire
on the hits and misses of the campus,
proved a great success, while the
farce, "Shot at Sunrise," drew re-
peated applause from the audience and
was a big hit. W. T. Netter rendered
his selection on the harp with great
skill.
Waldo Fellows, '14, who is always
a favorite with Ann Arbor audiences,
furnished much merriment and was
forced to appear for several encores.
He concluded with his imitation of
the moving picture show, a feature
which audiences never fail to enjoy.

Body Disecusses Best Method for In-
troduetion of Military,
Training
Following his lecture on Wednesday
night, General Leonard Wood con-
ferred informally with the recently
appointed Regents' Committee on
Military Training. The discussion
concerned the wisest course of pro-
cedure to be put into use at the uni-
versity. '
At the last meeting of the Board
of Regents, provision was made for
the establishment of non-compulsory
military drill and the chair of profes-
sor of military science was created.
As yet no one has been selected to
fill the position.
HIGHWAY COURSE ENOS TODAY
Prof; Ira 0. 11 er of Illinois to Ad-
dreys Last Session
Today concludes the program of the
short course in Highway Engineering
which is being conducted in the engi-
neering school. Class-room work, la-
boratory work, and lectures have fea-
tured the entire program.
The program of today includes Ira
0. Baker, professor of civil engineer-
ing in the University of Illinois. Pro-
fessor Baker is without doubt the
foremost teacher of civil engineering
in the country. His subject is "The
Highway Engineer as a Public $erv-
ant."

Dr. Cook Attacks
Hobbs in Speech
t'alis Professor "Coward;" Hobbs Re-
fuses' to Make Reply
to Charge
In answer to Prof. W. 'H. Hobbs'
attack on him in a recent communica-
tion to The Michigan Daily, Dr. Fred-
erick A. Cook, in a lecture at a local
theater last night, in the most vicious
and scathing terms, publicly branded
as false certain statements made
against him in the article referring on
the authenticity of his claims to the
discovery of the North Pole.
In his afternoon lecture, the ex-
plorer announced that he would an-
swer Professor Hobbs' branding of
him and his expedition as a fake, in
the evening. When Professor Hobbs
did not put in an appearance last
night, Dr. Cook assailed him as a
"coward" in the most daring and for-
cible language. Persons in the audi-
ence said that it was the most daring
thing they had ever heard.
When called to the telephone last
night, Professor Hobbs refused to
make any statement in reply. "I have
nothing to say," he said. When asked
,s to whether such a denunciation of
himself was expected, following his ar-
ticle of Tuesday in The Daily, Pro-
fessor Hobbs said, "It was not unex-
pected; it is just like Dr. Cook."

''There are those who claim that
the engineer does not occupy the posi-
tion in his community to which he is
entitled by' virtue of the tme given
to his professional preparation or be-
cause of his intellectual ability.
"It is claimed that engineering is a
learned profession, but it is said that
the engineer does not occupy as high
a position among his fellows as do the
members of the other learned profes-
sions,--the lawyer, the doctor or the
preacher."
Speaks to Audience of 400
Ira O. Baker, professor of civil en-
gineering at the University of Illinois,
and the nation's foremost teacher of
civil engineering, made the preceding
declaration to an audience of nearly
400 engineering students gathered in
West Physics hall yesterday. He fol-
lowed the declaration with a clear and
concise analysis of the condition and.
then pointed out the remedy.
"Admitting the conditions, it is
worth while to inquire why they exist,"
said Professor Baker. "In the first
place, this lack of influence of the en-
gineer is not because of lack of edu-
cation, for the usual requirements for
admission and for graduation for en-,
gineers are at least equal to those or-
dinarily required for doctors and law-
yers. Furthur, it is not because of
lack of need of the engineer's services.
Again, it is not because of lack of in-
tellectual ability that engineers are
not influential in their community."
Engineers Deficient i lLanguage
"I am persuaded that the chief rea-
son why the engineer does not attain
to the position in the public estimation
which he might occup is because of
wrong ideals. The reresentative en-
gineers magnifies the importance of
technical matters and is insistent upon
acquiring a so-called "practical edu-
cation."
"As a result he lacks breadth of
view, is weak in non-professional mat-
ters, in knowledge of political proce-
dure, of business methods, of labor
conditions or of social problems. Fur-
ther, he is often seriously deficient in
