'RO GLEAS ON LEAVES
SAT CLOSE OF SEMESTER
LAVES TO TAKE POSITION AS
FIRST ASSISTANT IN NEW
YORK GARDENS
Proessor H. A. Gleason of the
'otanical department of the Univer-
ity will leave for New York at the
lose of the first semester in Febru-
.ry. There he will take up his du-
les as first assistant in the New York
sotanical gardens. His resignation
vas accepted at the regents' meeting
ast Friday.
New York Gardens One of Largest
The New York botanical gardens
,here Professor Gleason will take up
tis work are the largest of their kind
n the world in point of size, taking
p some 400 acres of ground in the
ronx Park. In considering the
Lumber of plants growing in the in-
titution, it will perhaps rank first,
econd or third, depending on the
'ear, as, according to Professor Glea-
on, the extermination of plants from
ear to year makes it impossible to
aake a fixed estimate .of those which
.re produced. The New York gar-
.ens, together with similar gardens in
ava and London form the three larg-
st in the world, the supremacy vary-
cg from year to year. Those in New
ork have the patronage of several
f the richest of New York families,
uho keep them supplied with a large
.mount of hovel and expensive equip-
nent which it would be impossible
o purchase but for this fact. A lab-
wratory, kept up in connection with
his institution, affords opportunity
or considerable research to be car-
ied on, though no degrees are con-
erred from there and the work car-
led on is done entirely by graduate
tudents. Professor Gleason himself,
fter receiving his degree from Colum-
Ia university, did considerable grad-
tate resear.ch work there, and has on
bree other occasions made short vis-
ts to the institution, where he em-
aloyed his time in research work.
Immense Greenhouse Aids Work
The garden also boast of the
argest greenhouse in the United
tates, used purely for the growing
>f plants. A palm room is some 700
eet long and 75 feet in height, af-
ording ample opportunity for the
rowing of various varieties of palms.
His actual duties have not as yet
een made known to him and the only
brd whichthe hasreceived upon the
Lbject Is that they will be of a
urely administrative nature. Pro-
essor Gleason stated that he was not
tt all sure just what they would in-
lude, but that they would make him
n assistant in the institution. He
Ices not expect that they will have
o do with the care of the plants in
any way.
Leaves After 8 Years on Faculty
Upon leaving early in February,
Professor Gleason will have complet-
ed eight and one-half years as a
nember of the faculty of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, having affiliated
himself with the botanical department
of the University in the fall of 1910.
No apointment has as yet been made
to fill the position which he will leave

SEMESTER FINALS
TO BEGIN FEB.

Examinations in all colleges of the
University excepting the engineering
college, will begin Feb. 3, andnot one
week earlier as stated in the college
'announcements. The period of ex-
aminations will cover two weeks, Feb.
3 to Feb. 14.
The wek thus added to the first
semester was taken from the second,
the latter now .beginning one week
later, Feb. 17. There had always been
an odd number of weeks in the reg-
ular academic year, the extra week
always being included in the second
semester. Recent action by the facul-
ties changed this rule. The length of
the school year will not be affected
and will end at the time announced.
Examination schedules are now be-
ing prepared, according to the regis-
trar. These schedules will be out
some time next week.

EBERT OFFICIALS SURE
OF ELECTION CONTROL
(Continued from Page One)
down with bayonets and with plugs,
and otherwise killed scores of men
who were Spartacan guards or civil-
ians caught with arms. Hundreds of
persons already have been arrested
and are facing severe penalties.
The last ripples of the tidal wave
which has swept over Berlin in the
past seven days now are being felt
in the spread of robbery and looting,
which is being carried on by soldiers
and sailors who detached themselves
from Spartacan units.

Gunmen Enlist with Spartacans
Gunmen and criminals from all
parts of Germany hurried to Berlin
in the first days of the revolution, ac-
cording to reports, and enlisted in the
Spartacan forces at the police statidn
which served as a base for private
undertakings when the men were not
engaged in obeying the orders of the
Spartacan leaders. During the van-
dalism all criminal evidence, offichi
documents and rogue's galleries at
police headquarters were destroyed:
Berlin at one time ranked as one
of the best policed cities in the world;
tonight it is virtually defenseless
against lawlessness.
