address, Lundquist told how the
Swing-out came to be a, Michigan tra-
dition, how the classes used to meet
in the rooms of University hall where
Dean John R. Effinger and Registrar
Arthur G. Hall now have their offices
and how each class had its own see-
tion of seats when former President
' Angell addressed them. "'At the time
that we now celebrate the present type
of Swing-out," he -said, "the seniors-
of former years vacated the seats that
they occupied and the upper classes

President Addresses Assembly
President Harry B. Hutchins in his
address outlined the efforts and sac-
rifices of the men of Michigan to-
ward the winning of the Great War
and compared the outlook of the sen-
ior class of tw% years ago to the
present class. "Some former classes
faced troubled times when they. were
i their senior year. Let us hope that
the ruler of the future shall be the
Prince of Peace."
Pictures Taken After March
"Varsity" was played by the band
and sung by all those present
and then the benediction was pro-
nounced by Reverend Douglas. Then
with Lundquist and Ralph E. Gault,
president of the Student council lead-
ing, the seniors filed out of the build-
ing in the order that they assembled.
The block "M" was formed by a line
of 695 seniors including 230 lit women,
120 lit men, 97 engineers, 9 pharmics,
9 homoeops, 76 dents, and 30 laws.
A slight change was made in the line
of march by one group but practically
no disturbance resulted so the picture
of all the senior classes of the var-
ious colleges were taken on the steps
of Alumni Memorial hall.

B ak Number"
The "Back Number" of the Gar-
goyle, which appears today, super-
sedes all previous issues of the year
in the quantity of material contain-
ed. It nets 40 odd pages of cleverly
compounded wit. The bulk of the ma-
terial has some bearing upon the guid-
ing theme as expressed in the name of
The "Back Number" deals with and
plays up the old days at the Univer-
sity. The double page drawing of this
issue pictures the campus as it was
in those ancient times when it was
encircled by the famed picket fence;
when sleek porkers roamed the grassy
plots and the President's ruminating
bovine, old Betsey cow, complacently
champed her cud under the campus
There is a happy paucity of . arti-
cles of a long-winded nature in the
issue, the policy seeming to have
been to present the material in a way
at once short, sharp, and to the

superiority of this issue over past is-

REGENTS TO SET
Two requests, pertaining to seniors
who, on account of their military serv-
ice, have been prevented from gradu-
ating in June, the other in regard to
under graduates who' were also thus
delayed, are to be submitted by the
faculty of the literary college to the
Board of Regents at their meeting
Friday, April 25.
In the first request, recommenda-
tions are made asking that seniors
who were to have graduated in June
but who were prohibited on account
of military service, have their names
printed on the commencement pro-
gram as students expecting to grad-
uate at the end of the summer ses-
The second requests that students
whose graduation was delayed on ac-
count of military service might be
graduated with their original class if
they so desire. This would mean that
any under graduate, by his request,
could decide for himself whether he
wants his name with his original
class or with the class which he act-
ually is in.

SHORT MEETING PLANNED FOR
THURSDAY AT MICHIGAN UNION
Hearty approval to the organization
of an Aero club here has been given
by several professors, former flyers
now in the University, and the aero-
nautical students interviewed Tues-
day. The men who have seen service
in the air in the various flying units
during the war are especially enthus-
iastic over the project.
Such a club would bring the air ser-
vice men together and serve to keep
up the fraternal feeling which binds
the airmen and the memories of those
who served in the air.
Prof. F. W. Pawlowski, head of the
aeronautical engineering department,
said: "It would be a fine thing to
bring the air service men together and
for the aeronautical students to meet
the practical men of aviation."
T. F. McAllister, '21L, who saw ser-
vice as a pilot =in the French Flying
corps, and winner -of the Croix de
Guerre said: "I would be very much
interested in it. We should have such
an organization to keep up the spirit
and war records of Michigan men who
served in the war."
"I am interested in the project and
would gladly support it. It is some-
thing we should have," answered Lor-
en Heseltine, instructor in -the Royal
Air Force when asked his opinion.
William Smith who served as a pilot
in the United States army air service
became enthusiastic and started active
work in starting the club. He need
hardly be quoted.
Robert Cook of the Naval Flying
corps offered "great," as his quota-
tion on the subject.
Harry Carey who also won his com-
mission in the army air service is in-
terested and working for the organiza-

With every one who could be found
Tuesday in favor of the organization
it has been decided to hold a short

prove to be interested the Aero club

which the residents of Ann Arbor

High Schools Will Be Shoyn
FRATERNITIES ASKED TO GIVE
MEN LODGING FOR ONE NIGHT
Taking up a task usually performed
by the University at the annual high
school basketball tournament, that of
acquainting the high school men of
the state with the institution, the Uni-
versity Y. M. C. A. han invited one
member of each senior high school
class in the state to attend a confer-
ence in Ann Arbor on May 23 and 24.
Various fraternities have been ask-
ed by the "Y" to provide lodging for
the men on Friday night and break-
fast for Saturday morning. Students
will be organized into a body of guides
to show the men about the campus,
giving individual information on the
buildings, the courses, expenses, and
University life in general.
In order to disseminate this knowl-
edge as widely as possible, the stu-
dents from the hig schools will be
requested to give accounts of their
visit to the student bodies of their re-
spective schools. "This will serve to
bring the University and the commu-
nities of the state into closer touch,
and will be of interest and benefit to
the visitors," said A. C. Crockett, '19,
president of the University Y. M. C. A.
Ofefials Approve Meeting
"It is seldom that students, just be-
fore passing out of high school, have
the opportunity to size up a college
community before they are precipi-
tated into it."
University officials have given the
committee the sanction and approval
for the conference.

Wending their ways through the
midnight shadows as the clock struck
12 Tuesday night, figures emerged
from the gloom and gatfiered between
the engineering and medical build-
ings on ground recently covered by the
old surveying buildings.
On the shoulders of the foremost
men was carried a small model,
which closely resembled the unbecom-
ing structures which once stood on
that ground. As they prepared for the
rites, a historian would have seen
that characters from all periods of his-
tory were represented.
Shadows they represented. The
spirit of Ti was present. It was he
who was pre-eminent in Egyptian
architecture. Iktinos, the architect of
the Parthenon became himself in state-
ly manner. Among the strange fig-
ures was Brunneleschi, who drew the
plans for the beautiful dome of Flor-
ence. Pierre Corbie, the renowned
Gothic architect, was also present.
These were only a few of the ancient
designers of beauty and symmetrical
dines who were present at an inspir-
ing moment for all Michigan archi-
tects. For this meeting was to cele-
brate, with- proper rites, the passing
of the old, the ugly, and the ram-
shackle. It is the hope of the archi-
tects, who have long disliked the old
and unseenly buildings of the campus.
It is to express their relief, their
dislike for the uncomely, and their
hope of the future of the Michigan
campus that the ar hitects joined at
midnight Tuesday In this reverie.
They expect it to be the beginning of
a movement to erect buildings on the
campus worthy of being there and to
eliminate those buildings from the
campus which are not worthy.

made no official statement on the sub-

the Associated Press today that it was
considered useless for the Italian del-

The Italians remain inflexible in

Allies became well defined.
