A suggestion of Prof. Emil Lorch,
department of architecture; was "to

increase production and get more in-
terest in the work."
Prof. H. C. Sadler, department of
marine engineering, spoke of the

Several favorable opinions were ex-
pressed on the establishnwent of a
Secretary of Education in the Cabine
of the United States President..y men
in the EducationiDepartment of the
University. The general idea was
held that the proposed office will sure-
ly be created at the next election.
Prof. Wbitney Approves
Prof. A., S. ,Whitney of the Depart-
ment of Educationmade the following
statement: "I heartily endorse all of
Mr. Clancy's statements in yesterday's
Daily concerning tie wisdom of estab-
lishing a Department of Education in
Washington with a secretary in the
President's Cabinet. It is quite as Vm-
portant that we should have a secre-
tary of education as a secretary of la-
bor or of agriculture, and in many
resp cts infinitely more important.
"It is a matter of common knowl-
edge that the public school situation
is now most critical and is likely to
continue so for some time if not in-.
"Our democracy is dependent upon
the enlightenment of the people and
illiteracy in any one \section of the
country weakens the democracy of
every other section. Thiscondition is
not likely ever to be corrected so long
as there obtains the present decen-
traljzed organization in education.
National Secretary-Only Solution
"It can only be corrected by the
Federal government placing at the
head of education a man who can 'di-
rect the attention of the government
to education throughout the entire
country and aid its development by
Federal 9upport."
According to statements of men who
are well informed on this subject there
does not seem to be any strong ob-
jection to the creation of this office
from any direction. j
George E. Myers, professor of in-
dustrial education, states that "espe-
cially in view of thel present emer-
gency in education with a iarked
shortage of trained teachers it is
highly desirable that this measure cre-
ating a Federal department of Edu-
cation and providing for Federal aid
be made a law.
"The Federal government is now
aiding in the training of teachers of
ipdustrial subjects an- there is no
reason why similar aid should not be
provided along other lines.

retary of education in the President's
cabinet in itself would give education
the recognition that it has long de-

live stock is important enough to de-

cient importance to be given the same

Second Medal Awarded

This is the second medal to
awarded since Michigan's return

Boyd, '21L, was accorded the honor
and last year no one was named;
for it.

to "Step" Tonight
Leaving behind them all thoughts of

trip o'er the floor of Barbour gymna-

heralded '22 E. Step.

ing, they begin their grand march.
From that hour they will dance con-
tinuously until 1 o'clock the next
morning, with Sandy Wilson's jazz or-'
chestra, eight strong, supplying the
musical impetus. The gymnasium
will be brightly decorated with yellow
and blue streamers, hung in such a
manner as to divide the 'space under
the running track into separate
booths. To the guests, small, 'novel
favors, of odd design, will be given.
The style for the affair willdbe sum-
mer formal for both men and women."
Prof. William C. Hood and Mrs.
Hood, and Prof. Ferdinand N. Mene-
fee and Mrs. Menefee willbe chap-
erones for the dance. Tickets may
still be secured at the Union desk.

Washington, May 27.--Senate inves-

on a plan to put William G. McAdoo's
name before the Democratic conven-
tion and an assertion from John T.
King', original manager of Major Gen-
eral Wood's campaign, that John R.
Hanna of Cleveland, early in the gen-
oral's campaign had promised "to go
out and gather in $500,000." In reply

Mr. King's testimony concerned the
early organization of the Wood can
paign and its financing under his di-
rection to the extent of $91,000 and
his retirement in favor of Col Wil-

the Woods campaign had been under-,

who attended a dinner given by the'
late Henry C. Frick for that purpose.
The Wood campaigning Mr. King said
