TO INSPECT MEN'S
In Order to Standardize Living Con-
ditons Rooms Used Must Be
CONTRACTS EXPECTED TO
Startifig next fall all men living in
rooming houses will be expected to
talte rooms approved by a committee
of five women wh ch has already start-
ed an inspection of all rooming hous-
es, according to an announcemnt made
yesterday afternoon by J. A. Bursley,
Dean 9f Students.
Will Stop Overcrwding
"The plan will be the same as that
now used for league houses," said
Dean Bursley. "The reason for the
appointment of the committee is to
bring about more standardized condi-
tions in the houses. The committee
will see that the sanitary conditions
are as they should be and prevent
over-crowding. It will make no at-
tempt to set prices and will not in-
spect the, houses with the idea of crit-
icising, _but only to make up a list of
residences which have met with their
Must Observe Contract
In order to further eliminate trouble
between roomers and landladies Dean
Bursley is preparing leases which the
University will recommend for use. If
an agreement is signed between a
roomer and landlady the University
will see that each party lives up to
the contract. In this way much of
the trouble and moving from one
house to another experienced this year
[is expected to be done away with. It
will not be a rule that a contract
must be signed, but if there is no
agreement all controversies must be
settled between th'e landlady and the
roomer and not by the University.
The committee appointed is as fol-
lows: Mrs. Emma Yerex, Mrs. M.
Hickman, Mrs. F. M. Haun, Mrs. H.
Flool; and Mrs. A. I Reamer. All are
members of the University Housing
league for men. They will report the
results of their tour to Dean Burs-
ley, who will then make up a list of
the, approved houses.

GLASS WILL BE GUESTS OF
UNION AT "HULLABALOO"
Freshman attention will be focused
on two big events this evening, the
first, the All-fresh pep meeting for
the Spring games which will be held
at 7 o'clock in Natural Science audi-
torium and secondly, the ,All-fresh
smoker-better known as the "Hull-
abaloo"-which is scheduled for 7:45
o'clock at the Union.
The freshman band will be on hand
at the pep meeting to welcome the
whole class of '24, every member of
which is expected to turn out at the
meet. Dwight '. Joyce, '21, will give
the principal talk of the meeting, ex-
plaihing in detail the rules of the var-
ious Spring games. He will also give
a few hints how the freshmen may ob-
tain advantages over their opponents.
Captain to Speak'
Cameron A, Ross, '24E, freshman
captain, will give a short talk to in-
still spirit into the class. Yells will
be given and a call for tryouts for the
obstacle races, which will be held
Saturday morning, will be issued.
It is planned to make the meeting as
short as possible so that at 7:30, head-
ed by the freshman band, .the entire
group can march to the Uion for the
All-fresh smoker, where the class will
be guests of the entertainment com-
mittee of the Union-.
An elaborate program is planned
f' the evening. The leading stunt
o the smoker is a dance by "Salome"
who, it is rumored, came especially
for this event direct from Cairo, Egypt.
"Nobe" Wetherbee, '21L, and Myron E.
Chon, '23, will give a saxophone-piano
duet. A drinking song besides sev-
eral other rousing numbers are prom-
ised by the Freshman Glee club, which
will take part in the entertainmient.
Jazz Music; Free Punch
Another number, the exact nature
of which has not been divulged, will
take a prominent place in the pro-
gram as will several speeches by var-
ious members of the faculty. Harry
Gould's orchestra will give some
"jazzy" / selections which will, co-
bined with the drinking song and
free punch, lend a real freshman air
to the "Hullabaloo."

About 400 feet of film picturing

ing shown at the Wuerth theater this1
week. The pictures were made by the'
Detroit Free Press and the Pathe
At the end of the week a print of
the picture will be. turned over to the
senior class. Mr. J. F. Wterth is
standing half of the expense for the 1
picture and the senior class the other
half. It is expected that this, print
will be used at class reunions and will
be shipped throughout the state toc
alumni gatherings. Mr. Wuerth has1
agreed to handle these shipments
whenever they are to be made.
Scenes were taken from in front of
the Library and from the top of the
Chemistry building. One shows the'
line of march from the Library to Hill
According to G. E. Planck, manager

LEAD CLASS TO CONFLICT$
All members of the sopholitore
class who desire to take part in the
annual tug-of-war which will be held
next Saturday must report between 3
and 5:30 o'clock today in Dr. May's
office of Waterman gymnasium to get
"weighed-in" for the event.
The same system in deciding the
members of the various teams as
used by the freshmen will prevail at
the sophomore "weigh-in". Fifty.men
who weigh under 135 pounds each will
be selected for the lightweight team,
50 between 135 and 160 pounds will
be chosen to pull for the middle-
weights, and the 50 heaviest over the
160 mark will compose the heavy-
"The sophomores wil have to turn
out in full force," said Roswell P.
Dillon, '21E, chairman of the Spring
games committee, "in order to keep
pace with the freshmen who practi-
cally swamped Dr. George A. May's
office yesterday in an endeavor to se-
cure places in the pull."
Awakened by the spirit shown by
the freshmen, the sophomores claim
that they wil have an even better
band than that of the '24 men to lead
them to the games Saturday morning.
Results of the freshman and sopho-
more "weigh-ins" will be announced
in Thursday's issue of The Daily.
