edness Committee of Naval 1
r- - -
Howard E. Coffin, '96, B. S., '02, hasP
been appointed chairman of the iii-
lustrial preparedness committee of
he naval consulting board. This
places him in the position of the fore-
rnost engineer in the United States.i
le will direct the work of the com-t
mittee, which is national in scope andl
calls for the employment in the serv-
ice of the nation of about 30,000 engi-
neers in the various states.
It is the intention of Mr. Coffin to
assign an engineer to every plant in
this country the equipment of which
is such that it can be used in the
manufacture of munitions or other sup-
plies that would be needed by the
fighting services in the event of war.
Fprty state boards, which are to be
ope'rated under the direction of Mr.
Coffin, will be appointed within a few
days. The chief work of these state
boards will be to take an industrial
census of their various state to ascer-
tain what the plants can do in the
way of turning out war supplies in
case of a national crisis.'
Mr. Coffin recently stated that one-
half o the producing machinery of the
world is in the "United States, and
shoild the United States succeed in
organizing industries, there would be
no two nations able to compete with

burden the campus? If nine-tenths of
the critics would use their power in
other directions, there might be a good
new joke in the Opera. Out of the
depths we again suggest that the

have authority over it in the face of
conflicting ideas on the part of others
as to how it should be.

of buildings and grounds of the uni-

"mall" in the vacant space between

The "mall," the construction of

a 30-foot parkway between. The

The patriotic enthusiasm of the
Yluugarian people now engaged in

in a letter received by F. V. Pogart,
323 Packard street, from his sister, a
resident of Budapest. The letter, al-
though sent February 17, did not reach
this city until yesterday. it had been
opened and censcred. The writer

Alihoughi Satisfied with Present Form
Believes Commission Idea '
"I am in favor of it," said Prof. John
R. Allen, head of the mechanical e.-
gineering department, when asked as'
to his views regarding the proposed
commission form of government for
the city of Ann Arbor. "Our present
form of government is excellent, and
espially so under the present adminis-W
tration. Yet I believe commission gov-
ernment with the right men at the
head of it is the most efficient."
A general revision of the city char-
ter is the proposition upon which the;
citizens of Ann Arbor will vote April
3. A petition calling for such a revi-
sion has been filed with City Clerk
Ross Granger. This is a preliminary
step o the part of those who favor
a co ;,nission form of government
with a city manager for Ann Arbor.
"In business," continued Professor
Allen, "you must centralize the re-
sponsihility. It ought to be the same
in administering the affairs of a city.'
Commission government enables you
to maintain a fixed policy in regard
to the development of the city.'
"One of our fallacies is our present
form of government in which alder-
ren are elected by wards and repre-
sent the wards. There should be no
conflict between the policies of the
vrord and the.policies of the city. The
governors should represent the city
as a whole, not as units.
"Commission form of government is
undemocratic. It savors of despotism
because it puts the responsibilities on
one person. Yet the most ideally effi-
cient government is a despotism but
you must have the right kind of despot
"You must have a settled policy es-
pecially in the matter of public works.
