Washington, Jan. 11.-The policies
of Walker D. Hines, newly appointed
director-general of railroads to suc-
ceed William G. McAdoo, will be ad-
vocation of five-year continuation of
government control, or early relin-
quishment of the roads to private
control, unless congrss promptly
enacts remedial legislation.
"Mr. McAdoo's policies are my pol-
icies, and I intend to carry them out
through the existing railroad organi-
zation," he telegraphed today to re-
gional directors, immediately after
announcement of his appointment,
which was made by President Wilson
by cable and on recommendation of
Mr. McAdoo. The new director-gen-
eral also declared a "square deal for
labor, fair treatment of railway own-
ers and patrons, and closer under-
standing between, the public and the
government on railroad questions."
Detroit, Jan. 10.-Detroit's annual
automobile show for 1919 bids fair
to outshine anything ever before at-
tempted by the Detroit Auto Dealers'
association, for the board of directors
have just closed a contract for a
building which offers much more
space than has ever been used. The
display room is all on one floor and
under one roof. The enormous Cross-
town garage will house the event this
season. This is the largest one floor
garage in the world.
March 1st to 8th, inclusive, are the
dates for the exposition which the
management plans to make more of
an automobile show than it has been
in the past, including a display of
trucks, and tractors, lighting outfits,
accessories and practically everything
in the gasoline motor field, as well
as passenger automobiles.
With the elimination of, the na-
tional shows in New York and Chica-
go this year, the manufacturers are
looking forward to the Detroit dis-
play as the biggest event in motor
car circles for 1919. The members
of the association are all keenly in
favor of the most complete exhibit
in their history and since the infant
days of the industry they have not
taken such an interest in any one
event as they have manifested in con-
nection with the 1919 auto show.
That the boarding and rooming
houses of Ann Arbor may be inspect-
ed as were the soda fountains and
restaurants was intimated by Dr. W.
E. Forsythe yesterday. Dr. Forsythe
s a member of the health service of
the University and is one of the com-
mittee which has been inspecting the
soda fountains and restaurants to
ascertain whether they are clean and
Four of these eating places were
found to be dirty and were warned to
clean up immediately. If they are not
cleaned up immediately, he said, they
will be reported to the state food in-
spector. The local health authorities
expect to make another tour of these

places within a few days to find out
whether they have complied with the
directions which were given them.
"If the Regents permit," said Dr.
Forsythe, "we will inspect all board-
ng and rooming houses in the city.
feel sure that a great number of
hese places need cleaning up and it
s up to us to do it. We intend to keep
after these places until they are san-
tary." t

Steps are being taken by the Wom-
en's league to induce the nurses in
training at both the University and
the Homoeopathic hospitals to join
the league and so be drawn closer in-
to university life. To this end a par-
ty will be given by the league Fri-
day afternoon in honor of the nurses.
Nurses Join League
Several nurses have joined the
league, others have expressed their
intention of doing so, and it is hoped
that they will become 100 per cent
Women's league before the term is
ended. Nurses are especially urged
also to attend the fancy dress party to
be given by the league, Jan. 24.
Should Use Their Rights
"This is one of the things that the
league is particularly anxious to ac-
complish this year," said Doris Mc-
Donald, '19, president of the Wom-
en's league. "In view of the fact that
the nurses have the same require-
ments as the other students and re-
ceive a University diploma, they are
certainly entitled to the same oppor-
tunities accorded all women of the
University, and it is bur privilege to
work with them and to make them a
vital part of the league." An unusu-
ally large crowd is expected at the
party Friday afternoon to welcome the
nurses and to make them a part of the
Workingmen End
Argentine Strike
(By Associated Press)
Buenos Aires, Jan. 11.--The commit-
tee in charge of the general strike
agreed to end the strike this after-
noon, after a conference with Presi-
dent Irigoyen, and the President of
the Vasena Iron Works. Government
troops turned machine guns on a
force of about 200 strikers and their
supporters when they attacked the
postoffice this afternoon, dispersing
them. Twenty persons were killed
and 60 wounded in another attack in
the Vasena Iron Works today.
Prof. Earl V. Moore, of the Music
department, says that the music out-
look for the 1919 opera is especially
promising. Each of the music writ-
ers is in possession of a copy of the
opera book and the lyrics, and at a
meeting yesterday the progress made
by the writers was found to be even
more than 'could be expected. Next
week there will be'another meeting
so that the ,songs that have already
been written may be played for the
approval of the committee in charge.

"What I Have Seen in Alsace"
will be the subject of a lecture by
M. Fernand Baldensperzer to be giv-
en at 4:15 o'clock Monday afternoon
in the Natural Science lecture room.
M. Baldensperzer, who came to this
country in the fall of 1917, is now
serving his second year as exchange
professor at Columbia university. He
served in the army before coming to
this country and is known chiefly as
professor of comparative literature in
the University of Paris. He has work-
ed especially on the relation between
the English, French, and German lit-
eratures of the romantic period. He
made a thorough investigation into
the matter of Goeihe's influence in
France, and also personal relations
between the United States and
France, studying the personnel of
those who came over from France to
help America in her struggle for free-
The lecture will be given in French.
Lectures in foreign languages are
given but a few times a year and stu-
dents are urged to make the most of
this opportunity to - hear a distin-
guished Frenchman speak in his na-
tive tongue on an interesting subject.
S. A. T. C.
Plans for spreading a general
knowledge of the Bible and its teach-
ings- and for studying the practical
application of its principals will be
made at the "Y" conference which is
now being held here. "Y" secretaries,
business men and studens who have
had training in these lines will form
the nucleus for this work.
By dividing the city into districts
and- then into study groups an effort
will be made to reach every man on
the campus. The demobilization of
the S .A. T. C. caused this reorgani-
zation. The new program will proba-
bly be running smoothly in less than
a, month.
Discuss S .A. T. C. Benefits
During the meeting, a discussion
arose concerning the S. A. T. C. from
a moral standpoint. The delegates
many of them 'S. A. T. C. men said
that it promoted a friendly spirit and
better teamwork, and had broken
down many social and religious preju-
A demonstration of a discussion
section was given during the meet-
ing. Nine' representative members
from the delegation were chosen who
discussed an appointed subject while
Mr. J. E. Ludwick pointed out the
methods for leading such a group.
Clubs Meet in Lane Hall
Lane hall, the scene of these activ-
ities, has been used a great deal late-
ly for the meeting place for different
campus clubs and organizations be-
cause of the state of incompletion of
the Union building. Despite its pop-
ularity there is always plenty of room
at Lane hall and clubs are welcome
at any time to hold their meetings
Dance and Efats
Enjoyed at frixer

Despite the risque posters which
advertised yesterday's mixer the stu-
dents were not alarmed as might
have been expected, but assembled in
good numbers. The floor grew crowd-
ed and shoes became dusty long be-
fore 3 o'clock. Some of the men
seemed to feel themselves back in
Northern France and plowed their
way through the crowd like tanks on
their way to Berlin. All of the 200
couples had an extremely good time,
although one girl was heard to re-
"My, I wish there were more men
here. You know it's so funny but I
take much better when there are
about six men to every girl." She
was a nice girl though.

Siudents to Be on Probation Until
Regular Requirements Are
Made Up
High school students whose pre-
paratory courses have been interrupt-
ed by reason of military service or
other approved war work, may, during
1919, be admitted to the University
without meeting the full former re-
quirements of 15 units or credits, the
Board of Regents decided at their
last meeting.
Suck students will be admitted on
trial, upon the presentation of 11
units gained either upon examiation
or upon official certification and 'ree-
ommendation by the principal of an
accredited high school. In these 11
units must be included at least nine
units selected from Group I of re-
quirements for admission. This group
consists of the major high school
Students Upon Probation
The students, providing they are
admitted under such circumstances,
will be placed upon probation and
will have to completely satisfy the
former requirements for admission as
regular students within two years
after matriculation, that is to say,
after their entrance. Students enter.
ing upon these conditions will not be
candidates for a degree until such
probation is entirely removed.
This modification of requirements
for admission will take effect imme-
diately. A student meeting these requi-
sites may make entrance the second
semester of this academic year which
begins Feb. 17, and he may take ex-
aminations here Feb. 13 to 15 or next
September, to secure the remainder
of the 11 units, if necessary. The fee
for the second semester is 60 per
cent of that for the entire year.
Merits to Determine
A student who was or would have
been a senior in high school and who
enlisted in any branch of the service
or other approved war work, such as
the Y. M. C. A., Red Cross, K. of C.,
or other patriotic associatins, may
apply for admission.
No Time Restrictions
No definite length of service will be
required, providing it was inevitable-
that the student had to'miss enough
school work which could not, be made
up in an unusually short period of
time. Each applicant will be asked
to show some kind of a certificate in-
dicating which branch of the service
he was in.
Every high school throughout the
state is being informed by -letter of
the exception in requirements for ad-
Standards Not Lowered
Dr. Arthur G. Hall,.registrar of the
University, said of this step taken:
"We do. not purpose to lower the

standards of admission for regular
students. But we are of the opinion
that a year or two in the army or
navy has in many cases produced a
maturity which, to a certain extent,
will take the place of some of the
high school studies in assuring suc-
cess in college work. By allowing
such persons who are not high school
graduates, but who are recommended
by the high school authorities, to en-
ter temporarily, an opportunity will
be given to the real deserving. Those
who do not make good will never be-
come regular students; those who do
succeed will be able to complete an-,
entire course."
