Plan To Provide Upperclassmen
As flentors For Class Of 1920


Secretaries of the diifferent schools
and colleges are to receive two tickets
to the Commencement day exercises
for every senior to graduate in June.
They will be given out on the basis
of two to each senior at the time an-
nodnced by Registrar Arthur G. Hall.
Speaking of the limited number al-
lowed to each senior, Registrar Hall
said: "About 1200 Seniors comprise
the , graduating class thisiyear. The
I' capacity of HiIk auditorium is 4800.
IS Allowing two tickets to each senior
and with the 1200 seniors themselves,
nd this makes 3600 without any outsid-
ers. Then there are only 1200 seats
left for alumni, special guests and the
general public.
It is evident that the ruling is not
al arbitrary but a necessity and cannot
al be evaded.

Undertaking a new departure in stu-
dent welfare work, a committee com-
posed of officers of the Michigan Un-
ion, of which Albert C. Jacobs, '21, is
general chairman, is rapidly complet-
ing plans for the inauguration of a
mentor system for members of the in-
coming freshman class:
That there is great need for the
immediate adoption of this plan is
strongly emphasized by Jacobs, who
gives the following explanation of its
purpose and the things which they
hope to acco nplish.
Freshmen Enthusiastic
"Freshmen, upon first entering the
University, are usually filled with en-
thusiasm, and are eagerly willing to
do their part in Michigan activities.
This spirit, however, is soon damp-
ened, due to the fact that after the
first few days of the semester, they,
are left to themselves by upperclass-

men, and find it is a difficult matter.
to make their own acquaintances. The
result of. this appargnt lack of inter-
est on the part of the older students
is felt'later, when these men, neglect-
ed At their first year, see no reason
to render service to the University if
called upon to do so."
To prevent any further recurrence
of such conditions, the mentor sys-
tem, which provides for the appoint-
ment of one upperclassmen as mentor
for two or three first-year men, is/to
be established next fall. It is essen-
tial to the success of the movement,
'says Jacobs, that at least 250 respon-
sible upperclassmen signify! their wil-
lingness to act in the capacity of "big
brothers" to the new men.
Sectional clubs and honorary socie-
ties have already been requested to
report 'to the committee the names of
all men who will be upperclassmen
next year, whom they can recommend'
for these positions.
To Canvass Fraternities
A committee ,f six fraternity men,
Guy Moulthrop, '22, John Winters, '22,
James Kennedy, '21, ,rack Reilly; '21E,
Charles E. Eades, '22, and Charles At-
kinson, '22, has been chosen to can-
vass all fraternities and house clubs
on the campus, to secure the names
of upperclassmen to aid in this work."
A meeting of independents will be
held at 3 o'clock this afternoon in the
Union. The number of the room has
not yet been chosen, butwill be post-
ed on the bulletin board in the lobby.
,With the opening of the fall semes-
ter, the 250 men chosen'will have un-
der their guidance 600 men'of the class :
of 1924. After careful consideration, I
it was decided not to attempt to pro-
vide mentors for the entire class, as
it was deemed unwise to start a new
plan on a too large scale. If, however,

Y pointed out that in this way the var-
ious fraternities couli become better
acquainted with their alumni, and
might aid the athletic situation at
some future time. The president of
the conference endorsed this sugges-
tion and urged that the various fra-
ternities make arrangements for the
day for next fall.
Zeta Beta Tau fraternity, which was
to have held the presidency for next
year, asked to be allowed to drop its
position for one year. The request
s was granted, and therefore the other
fraternities move up one notch in the
officers jor next year are as fol-

i offices immediately, and will assume
e full responsibility'with the opening of
the conference next fall.
The report of the banquet commit-
tee, stating that the banquet held a
short time ago, netted the treasury $1,

urer on the financial standing of the

The meeting was the final one, for
the year. Activities will be resumed
with the first meeting next fall, which
will be held early in October.

for the preliminaries of the meet,
which will be run off that day.
Containing a story of the meet and
a summary of the different events, an
extra will be published for street sale
within a few minutes after the relay
race has been run and the Coference
title decided. A special wire from the
press box on Ferry field to The Daily
wire has been leased to afford The,

the two places.
In the sporting extra will be many
stories on individual men entered in
the Western classic and an account
of the numerous stars that have been
listed in the entries. The success in
publishing football extras insures that
the paper will be on the street for sale
within a few Miinutes after the term-
ination of the contest.
Only pictures with a few lines of
reading under each cut will be con-
tained in the rotogravure edition,
which is billed to appear Friday after-
noon. A ,large sale of these papers is
expected, as no souvenir program is
being issued.
The number of copies printed will
be limited to 3,000, 750 of which have
been contracted for by the alumni
association of Detroit to send through-
out the country to various high

opinion of the executive committee.
