proposed rew ofcer in its report to
the Regents, the University Senate al-
so recommends that final action on the
ereation of this new office be deferred
ujitil after the appointment of the
president to succeed President Harry
B. Hutchins. Another resolution which
has been adopted by the. University
Senate ai lIncluded in the report rec-
omiziends that an adequate salary be
attached to the ofese so as to secure

T4he qgistio of the creation of a new
University o0oe, as proposed in the
report of the chairman of the Senate
committee on student affairs, was
first presented to the Senate council

ately adopted with a. unaimos vote.
The Senate then passed a resolution
that hhe recommendations be trans-
mitted to the Regents.

given its approval for the creation of

resolution will meet with success when
it comes before the Regents of the
University. As no information re-
garding the appointeent of the next
president has yet been given to the
public, a statement as to when the
Board will discuss the proposed reso-
lution. cannot be gained.

Officers for the year 1919-20 were
elected at the meeting last night of
the Student council. Carl E. John-
son, '20, was voted president, Wil-
liam W. Hinshaw, '20, vice-president,
and David Nash, '20, recording sec-
retary. Samuel J. Slavens, '20L, was
elected corresponding secretary, Le-
rand E. Gaines, '21E, treasurer, and
P. McLouth, '2110, is to hold the posi-
tion of auditor.


"The Student council being unalter-
ably opposed to any such demonstra-
tion as occurred on Cap night of last
week, because it realizes that it not
only disgraces the name of Michigan
but also gives the impression to the
outside world that Michigan still sanc-
tions the relics of barbarism, hereby
resolves that such occurrences shall
not be tolerated in the future, and that
students or groups of students found
to be participating in any such event,
will be immediately dismissed from the
Discussing the above resolution,
council members said, "It is a tradi-
tion of Cap night that the freshmen,
having at this time of the year pass-
ed their period of probation, are on
this night to be royally welcomed in-
to the ranks of Michigan men. Cap
night is meant to be a dignified and
serious occasion. It should be the
most indicative of Michigan spirit of
any of the student gatherings of the
college year, for it is watched by so
many people interested in our Uni,
versity. 'Anything that tends to mar
that dignity and solemnity drags Mich-
igan down from the plane of a great

freshmen class presidents have agreed
to hold class meetings to pass resolu-

strations will not occur next year. The
sophomore class presidents have eon-

"Military engineering differs from
that of peace times in that cost is not
taken into consideration," said Prof.
Alfred H. Lovell, of the 'electrical en-
gineering department, in his lecture on
"Engineering Operations at the Front"
Wednesday night under the auspices
of the American Institute of Electri-
cal Engineers.
Professor Lovell, who was a colonel
in the American expeditionary forces,
had actual experience in the opera-
tions he dscribed. Slides, showing act-
ual engineering operations at the
front, had been obtained from the
chief of engineers at Washington to
illustrate the lecture.
- "The duties of the engineers may be
divided into 10 sections: bridge build-
ing, highway construction, railways,
general construction, camouflage, for-
estry, demolition, general combat con-1
ditions, and actual fighting," Professor
Lovell said. "The difficulties that con-
front the engineers are innumerable.
,Most of the construction at the front
must be carried on with the greatest
possible speed, with whatever mae-
rials happen to be at hand, and under
continuous fire. Beaides this, the en-;
gineers are ofte called upon to aid
in the actual fighting when the reg-
ular infantry is ijsusmoient
"At the time when the armistice was,
signed, the United States expedition-
ary forces had built immense docks,
factories, cantonments, munitions, mu-
nition depots, airdomes, hospitals,j
storage depots, and railroads. Plans
had been made to have these opera-
tions doubled by the end of June of
this year. But the signing of the arm-1
istice stopped all this work."
After the lecture, Mr. Floyd L. Sny-
der, transmission and protection engi-I
neer of the Michigan Telephone com-
pany, gave a short talk on telephone
service and transmission.
After Mr. Snyder's talk, a brief busi-
ness meeting was held to elect offi-
cers for next year, as this was the1
last meeting of this semester. Lester
M. Ilgenfritz, '20E, was elected chair-a
man; Gordon R. Anderson, '20E, vice-t
chairman; Ross Gunn, '20E, secretary;f
Geo. Clark, '20E, treasurer.-

.NOV. 11, 1918
Men discharged "to Ann Arbor" from
the S. A. T. C. will be enabled to
qualify for additional compensation
according to the provisions of a new
act of congress.
Men discharged from the army
since Nov. 11, 1918, are to receive an
additional bonus in the form of an in-
creased mileage allowance. Five cents
a mile is to be given for the distance
between the place of diseharg and the
actual home or esidene, or the plae
of enlistment, at the option of the sol-
dier. Men who have already reeived
the three and one-half cent mileage
are entitled to one and one-half cents
If the actual residence claimed by
the soldier is not the same as stated
on his original service record, the Zone
-Finance officer will make settlement
for the additional amount. Those dis-
charged since Feb. 28 who have re-
ceived Ifwy cents a xmile and whose
bona fide homes at time of discharge
involved greater distance than they
received payment for may also submit
elaims. Because of the time required
to verify claims, prompt payment can-
not be expected.
Claims for the additional travel al-
lowance. have been authorized to be
'paid by the comptroller of the treas-
ury when the home or residence can
be determined from an affidavit by'the
soldier verified by the information in
his original service record. To se-
cure the travel allowance a true copy
of the discharge, certified as such by
a recruiting offleer, must accompany
the affidavit. Original discharges will
be accepted but are likely to be lost.

Posters announcing the 60th AnnI-
versary concert of the Varsity Glee
and Mandolin club to be given Fri-
day, June 6, at 8 o'clock have appear-
ed on the campus, and all preliminary
;arrangements for the "birthday party"
of the club have been completed.
An advertising design drawn by
Stanley Simpson, '22A, has been ac-
cepted by the management of the
club to be the poster device for the
concert. Window cards are being
placed in Ypsilanti as well as Ann Ar-
bor, and it is expected that the ad-
vertising campaign will bring a larg-
er attendance than the club has had
for some time. Last year's spring con-
cert had an audience of more than
4,000, but the 60th Anniversary con-
cert of this season is to be by far the
best produced by the club, according
to the directors, and it is exp'ected to
draw proportionately.

club this year regardless of the fact
that this is to be a spring concert.

White Discusses
Press Censorship
"Newspapers which suppress news
on the ground of public benefit lack
faith in Democracy," said Lee A.
White, editorial secretary of the De-
troit News, in outlining subjects for
journalistic research before a class in
journalism Wednesday afternoon.
The above statement was made in
regard to "Ostrich Journalism" prac-
ticed by newspapers which fail to
publish news of public significance and
give as an excuse that it would be
harmful to the locality. "Ostrich
Journalism" does not refer to suppres-
sion of crime news that is not of pub-
lic importance.
"Prese Censorship During the War,"
Mr. White said, offers one of the
broadest fields for research; that a
man could spend his whole life on it.
He declared that despite George
Creel's statement that all censorship
on the part of newspapers during the
war was voluntary, a club was held
over the head of every editor by Post-
master General Burleson.
Among other problems mentioned by
Mr. White as good subjects for re-
search were: Faking, Consolidation,
Ethics of Journalism, Sensationalism
and the 'Newsle,' the pictorial daily
press, how a paper secures a million
circulation, the foreign language press
In America, and "Yellow Journalism."
