Council Decides Freight Issue Monday
At the regular meeting of the city
council Monday evening, a decision
will be made on the complaint of resi-
dents of Packard street in regard to
the practice of the D. J. & C. rail-
way of shipping heavy fieight along
ts tracks. Residents of Packard street
claim that they are disturbed by the
passing of two freight trains at night.
The railroad committee, at an open
meeting held in the city hall last
evening, heard the complaints and also
heard several merchants who wish the
freight shipping allowed. The com-
mittee will make its recommendation
to the Council Monday.
OFFER FREE SCHOLARSHIPS
Self-Supporting Students Can Secure
Valuable Aid by Summer Work
Free scholarships offered under the
direction of Mr. H. W. Frey, are being
awarded to self-supporting students.
During the past seven years over 1,600
students have won free cash scholar-
ships worth $100 to $1,500 apiece.
President Wilson, together with five
prominent college presidents, has en-
dorsed this plan of awarding free
scholarships to ambitious students. A
certificate of such endorsepen is
placed in the hands of every student
whose application for enrollment is
accepted.
Any self-supporting student can se-
cure full particulars and a copy of
"Pepper of Princeton," which tells the
story, by. applying personally to the
local scholarship winner, Cyril E.
Bailey, 206 S. Thayer street.
WATCH BOULEVARD FOR FIRES
Police to Patrol Paths During Spring

The "strolling on the boulevard"
days are over. It has been decided by
City Forester Bassett and other park
officials that during the coming spring
and summer months, a motorcycle po-
lice beat will be installed on the most
popular of the evening walks. The
main purpose of this step is simply to
prevent fires.

EXPLORER STARTS INTO
IUNEXPLOREDCONTINENT
Geographers Think Stefanssen Is
Starting for Interior
This Month
That Vilhjahlmur Stefanssen, the
noted polar explorer, is pushing to-
ward the interior of what may prove
to be a vast Arctic continent, is the
belief of many eminent geographical
authorities, including Rear Admiral
Robert E. Peary. Stefanssen aimed to
begin this trip on the first of March.
Probably no polar explorer has made
so many miles on sledge journeys as
Stefanssen, whose total mileage ex-
ceeds 8,000 miles. Through years of
preparation Stefanssen has, been able
to adapt himself to the hard conditions
of the region, and starts upon his
journeys almost without supplies with
the exception of ammunition for his
rifle.
Between the expedition of Stefanssen
and the Crocker Land expedition,
which set out at about the same time
to attack from different quarters the
same unknown area in the Arctic,
there has been a certain measure of
rivalry. Macmillan, the leader of the
Crocker Land expedition, and who
set out from Cape Thomas Hubbard in
Ellsmere Land, failed to discover the
expected land, and is now returned and
wintering in Smith Sound. Stefanssen,
who attacked from the sonth instead
of the east, discovered the new land
during the last season and is presum-
ably now exploring it to determine its
extent and its characteristics.
KNOCKS STUDENT EFFUSIONS
WRITER OFFERS SUGGESTION FOR
CORRECTING FAULTS IN DAILY
COMMUNICATIONS
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
May I waste a few inches of your
valuable space with a communication?
I have been reading with no little in-
terest and quite a bit of mental laugh-
ter at the effluvium which finds its
way into your columns. It seems that
many of our students dote on having
their names appear in print; it seems
that others seat themselves at their
desks to fight the battles of the world,
to settle international questions and
to wax humorous, or clever as the case
may be, knowing that The Daily will
be a sounding board for their ringing
toots. These things are all very well
for metropolitan papers which have
oceans of space for such stuff. But the
columns of our Daily can easily, I'm
sure, be filled with other material.
Your business department charges
healthy rates for advertising material
while you dispense the same with a
lavish hand. I'm sure that some of
these tedious letters would be con-
siderably shortened if you set a 200
word minimum and demanded anony-
mity. Despite the fact that the story
of Creation was told in 600 words,
some of the local Chestertons, Shaws,
and Bert Leston Taylors use more
than that number to voice an. opinion
of The Pit, Dr. Cook, your editorial
policy, the high cost of living and
other interesting subjects. Indeed,
many of them are almost like Henry
Clay-they would rather write than be
president.

NAVYDEPRTMENT SENDS
GUNS TRNATAL EXHIBIT
Display Also to Contain Whitehead
Torpedo and Spanish
Gatling Gun
K. Warren Heinrich, chairman of the
committee in charge of the Marine
Engineering and naval exhibit to be
held here on May 17 and 18 has been
informed by the Navy Department that
three Benet Mercier .30 caliber auto-
matic machine guns, 6f the new type,
capable of firing 600 shots per minute,
will be sent to the exhibit. The dis-
play will also contain a 45-centimeter
Whitehead torpedo and a 14-inch How
ell torpedo. These will be so arranged
as to show the delicate mechanism of
these wonderful machines.
One of the features of the exhibit
will be a large 7-barrel revolving gat-
ling gun which was captured from the
Spaniards in the battle of San Juan
Hill in 1898, and is the gun which was
ised so effectively in trying to stop
the charge of Colonel Roosevelt's men.
Mr. Heinrich is now attempting to
procure some means of transporting
the 37-centimeter Hotchkiss revolving
cannon, which is now on display in
Milwaukee. An attempt is also being
made to procure a display of mines
°rom the Newport naval torpedo sta-
tion.
SOPH IT SCORES 'PIT'
B. G. ANDERSON REPLIES TO MISS
IANCIE TT'S CRITICISM OF THE
)AIA'S IHUMOR COLUMN I
Editor, 'the Michigan Daily:
With regret I take notice of Miss
Hanchett's trenchant criticism of the
Pit. It betokens an unsportsmanlike
spirit to attempt to handicap the abili-
ties of another, a thing of which I had
hoped no true student, loyal to the
traditions of the University, would be
guilty. Of this action Miss Hanchett
has been culpable. If Miss Hanchett
has ever had occasion to peruse the
column of The Daily set apart to
humor it must have been forcibly
brought home to her against what lim-
itations the editor is already strug-
gling. Therefore, with this in mind,
why should he be further harassed by
being denied the privilege of attempt.-
ing to make merry at the expense of a
few individuals who never would re-
alize from the nature of the thrust
that they had been singled out for
mention? Even as Abraham was ready
to sacrifice Isaac on the altar, and
Providence directed him to the goat
caught in the bushes, for my part I
am willing to sacrifice all the individ-
ual and even myself, but sparing the
entangled goat, in the hope of eventu-
ally locating something funny in the
column. With no intention of boast-
ing, I am compelled to make the need-
less confession that I have never yet
succeeded in deciphering the motive
which actuated any of the outbursts
which have appeared up to date. Per-
haps there are others who will feel
courage to make a similar confession
now that pioneers in the field have
preceded them.
I trust that Miss Hanchett will find
nothing offensively personal in the
above. Sentiments of equity alone are
responsible for these opinions.
