Because of the action of the Regents
in tabling the Student council peti-
tion asking that Hill auditorium be
opened to political speakers, it was
decided at the council meeting last
night to present an emergency peti-
tion to the Regents. This petition will
be drawn up following a consultation
of the council committee with Pres-
ident Harry B. Hutchins, to be held
the first of next weti,.
The question of profiteering by Ann
Arbor merchants catering to student
trade was brought up and discussed.
A committee was appointed to in-
vestigate all known cases of prof-
iteering, and to make reports on such
cases at the next council meeting.
It was deci.ded to send a letter to
campus organizations and 'conor so-
cieties which have made a practice of
having initiations involving undue
physical violence, requesting that
these societies and organizations elim-'
inate a certain amount of such vio-
lence. This action originated with
the Senate committee on student af-
fairs, and was approved by the coun-

Can you imagine the effect on
an athlete when, just before a
race, he glances toward the
bleachers and sees row after
row of his friends and . class-
mates? As he sees each one
watching him expectantly, hop-
ing that he will break the tape
ahead of the others, doesn't he
grit his teeth and speed faster,
feeling that he has the interest
and support of so many behind
him? Certainly he does.

finals are held Saturday. Ought
not every Michigan man that

The room has pigeon holes around
the walls for magazines, while there

mand. Directly behind and conven-

MR. J. Xl. ARNOLD RECOMMENDS
CHAIR OF CHINESE IN
Advocating a chair for the teaching
of. Chinese in the University, Mr. Ju-
lian H. Arnold, commercial attache t
China from the United States, . dis-
cussed many phases of Chinese life
before a large number of business
administration students last night in
the Economics building.
"There is an appalling ignorance
today on the part of Americans, espe-
cially university students, about things
Chinese," said Mr. Arnold. He con-.
tended that America is naturally more
of an Asiatic power than European,
as this country has more Pacifl coast
line than any other nation on the
"China and Asia have to olfer great
opportunities for trade. They give
.one of the most promising fields for
commercial work in the world today,
due to large homogeneous population
and almost unlimited supplies of nat-
ural resources," Mr. Arnold stated in
Mental Stagnation Old
He said that the mental stagnation
of the Chinese people dated back a
thousand years and was due primari-
ly to the peculiar system of educa-
tion which was in effect until 1905.
Under the old custom the Chinese stu-
dents were interested above, every-
thing else in the memory of their an-
cestors. This was the cause of their
backwardness and slowness to adopt
There are at present 1,500 Chinese
students in the American universi-
ties studying engineering and other
practical courses, intending to use
their knowledge in developng the
great Asiatic state.
Lack of Spirit Apparent
Mr. Arnold stated that when he first
took up the work in China he noticed
an almost utter lack of a national
spirit. This situation caused the out-
brerZ of the students' strike in Shang-
hai which was an attempt on the part
of, the students to spread the feeling
of nationalism in the face of hostile
aggregation of foreign powers.
Examinations will be held this
spring for those students who con-
template consular work of this na-
,ture. Mr. Arnold urged that Michi-
gan men take these examinations.
Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Oberlin, and
Pennsylvania are' already actively in-
terested in the work and he urges that
Michigan be represented. The posi-
tions pay from $3,000 to $9,000.
Hold Dinner at Union
Mr. Arnold has been in the consular
work for e past 18 years and is,
known as an authority on economicr
conditions of China. A dinner was
given for him at the Unin early in
the evening by several professors of
the Economics department and a rep-
resentation ,of the Commerce club.
