Industrial Life Problems to be Solved
by Manufacturers, Regents,
President Harry B. Hutchinswill
deliver an address of welcome at the
first meeting of the advisory board of
the newly created department of eng-
ineering research, which will hold a
conference at the Union commencing
at 10 o'clock this morning.
More than 100 manufacturers and
other leaders of the industrial life of
ichigan have been invited by Pres-
ident Hutchins to 'rganize and form
an advisory board with the Regents
and members of the engineering fac-
ulty for the purpose of solving all
problems regarding the manufacturing
done by all th# industries throughout
the state.
Board to Act as Advisor
All problems will be brought up
before the board which is to act as
adisor to the University for the pur-
pose of solving them. A director is
to be appointed by the Regents and he
is 'to have actual charge of all re-
search work with the asistance of
the engineering faculty.
Heretofore the manufacturers of
Michigan have come in contact with
the University only in a small and
individual manner, but if the present
plans work out, the object of this de-
partment will be to work in closer
harmony with the industries through-
out the state to the advantage and
betterment df both. Dean M. E. Cooley
of the engineering college, regards
this proposed plan as "one of great
importance to the manufacturers of
Michigan and one in which the Uni-
versity may be of real assistance to
the. industries throughout 'the state."
Program for Day Given
The program for the day will be as
follows: 10 A. M., address of wel-
come, President Harry B. Hutchins;
10:30 A. M., inspection of University
grounds and buildings, including
shops and laboratories; 12:30 P. M.,
luncheon at the Union; 1:30 P. M.,
meeting called to order by President
Hutchins. Five minute addresses will
then be given by the heads of the
various departments followed by a
summary by Dean M. E. Cooley. W. S.
Russell will then act as temporary
chairman for the organization and dis-
cussion of the advisory board.
Members of the R 0. T. C. club will
give a banquet Saturday night at 6

o'clock at the Union for their members
who will attend the summer camp .this

Dean Mortimer E. Cooley of the en-
gineering school have been secured for
speakers. Captain Shipman, newly
arrived from Northwestern university
to assist in the work here, and Cap-
tain Arthur of the R. O. T. C. staff will
also speak. M. W. Turner, '23E, pres-
ident of the organization, is to be the

Establishment of a new department
of Education with a secretary of Edu-
cation sitting in the president's cab-
inet is being urged by a number of
college graduates as a solution for the
present critical conditions in educa-
tional circles throughout the coun-
Among Michigan men, Robert H.
Clancy, '07, field secretary of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Club of Detroit,
has favored the move for some years.
Clancy urged support of the new gov-
ernment department before the Con-
ference of Alumni Secretaries and Ed-
itors, held in Ann Arbor May 13, 14,
and 15, and -these representatives of
college sentiment took the suggestion
The steering committee of the Re-
publican party announced a few days
ago a plank faoring the ne) cabinet
member would be incorporated in the
national Republican platform, at Chi-
cago and Clancy placed a plank advo-
cating the new department in the
platform of the Michigan Democratic
convention at Grand Rapids May 18.
Movement Is Non-Partisan
"The movement for the epochal ad-
vance in education by the establish-
ment of the new department and cab-
inet member is non-partisan and un-
selfish so far as I know," said Mr.
Clancy, "and I can apprehend no val-
id arguments in opposition to such a
bill. I believe the plank should be
inserted in the platform of all the
great political parties and then the
.department would be provided no mat-
ter which party won at the polls next
"It is my conviction that the new
department and cabinet member
would be tremendously helpful to all
educators, all education, and would
promote the general welfare. Nobody
can deny that p.resent conditions are
intolerable. The country faces a
shortage of 1,000 teachers next year.
The noblest and most necessary of
professions isn't getting the backing
from the people that it deserves. Com-
plaints and demands would catch and
hold the public ear until a remedy
were provided if voiced by the com-
pelliatg and understandable roar of a
cabinet member who' would get un-
limited space in the press and could
marshal the illimitable resources of
the federal government in a cause like
"I was in Washington in an official
capacity when tehe department of La-
bor was established a few years ago
and now laboring men appreciate as
they did'not before what a tremendous
boon to labor that department has
been. They had a general fighting
their cause finhe' very highest place
of the government and they received
advantages and aid which they could
not get otherwise. Possibly not many
farmers were keen for the department
of Agriculture before it was formed,
but nAv it is a pretty foolish farmer
who cannot see how the vitally im-
portant cause of agriculture has re-
ceived almost incalculable benefits
from that department. -
Little Expense to Be Incurred

"The new department can be formed
with very little expense and very lit-
tle trouble and could go into efficient
operation almost immediately after
congress authorized it. Some great
educator, a man of vision, tact and
executive abiity, should be chosen by
the new president as the first cabinet
member of Education, .and chosen ir-
respective of political considerations
because such a departient should be
free of politics.

Detroit News Qffcial Says Change in
Paper Size Should Not Alter ,
Reporter's Viewpoint
That tremendous changes in size
and organization of newspapers dur-
ing the last decade must not be per-
mitted to dull the reporter's and edi-
tor's sense of true social responsi-
bility was the message brought by Lee
A. White of the Detroit News to Sig-
ma Delta Chi, national professional
journalistic fraternity, at its spring
initiation banquet Wednesday night
at the Union.
Points Out Newspaper Advance
Pointing out how the newspaper
had advanced from the simple four-
page sheet to the many-sided metro-
politan journal using hundreds of tons
of paper a day, Mr. White explained
that this, great stressing of the ma-
terial aspect had created in many e'di-
torial rooms a parallel and resultant
spirit of commercialism and standard-
ization which had too often been per-
mitted to kill the best journalistic
ideals. He deplored the trite rigidity of
newspaper style restrictions, and the
lack of spirit of public responsibility.
"Service," he concluded, "must always
come first, and self second."
Prof. F. M. Scott, speaking on "Com-
mercialized Journalism," declared that
while the business side of a newspa-
per was very important in the same
sense that money-making is necessary
for men in every vocation, commercial
interests should never be offered as
an excuse for yellow editorial meth-
ods. There is no more ercuse for
crooked journalism, Professor Scott
stated, than for dishonest practice in
business on the excuse of making
Papers Play to Grandstand
Taking "Stints and Stunts" as his
topic, Prof. John R. Brumm pointed
out that .there was too little honest
effort at better writing and better ed-
itorial policy, and too great a ten-
dency to dramatize the newspaper and1
"stunt" to the grandstand.
The following men became members
of Sigma Delta Chi at the initiation

Sargent, '22, Robert Sage, '22, Joseph
Bernstein, '22, and Renaud Sher-
wood, '22.

derwood, '22, Paul B. Wilson, '21, apd
Lawrence Van Ness, '20.
The comedy will follow, 'Fatty"
Arbuckle in "The Butcher Boy." It
was due to the co-operation of the
managers of the Majestic theater that
the Union was able to secure both
this film and the main feature.. which
is Mae Murray in "On With the Dance."
Be'tween the comedy and the main
picture "Sandy" Wilson, '20, will de-
part from the ordinary in his char-
acteristic way.
The first release presentation of Mae
Murray and David Powell in "On With
the Dance" has been secured as the
special ,attraction of the evening.
Tickets will be on sale today on
the campus at the engineering arch.,
the Library, the Union desk, and at
the corner ' of State and North Uni-
versity avenue. .The price will be 25
cents. The doors of the audtorium will

ance will begin at 7:30 o'clock.

the Royal Magnetic and Meteorolog-
ical Observatory at Batavia, Java,
gave a talk Tuesday afternoon under.
the' auspices of the Geological de-
partment, on Javan volcanoes, scen-
ery and "science." It was mainly a
record of the personal observations
made during his long residence in the
East Indian tropics.
The narrative of his ascents of vol-
canoes, active and inactive, - some
visited after an eruption had. just tak-
en place -- was interesting to vlaymen
and geologists alike. So was' the se-
ries of some 50 pictures, showing
many andtvaried volcanic phenomena.
Illustrations' were 'given), of the lo-
calities that once were and still are
the scenes of great convulsions of the
earth's crust. :Others showed the for-
mation some two years ago of a new.
volcano on the site where a lake for-
merly had been.
