Judge Olson, of Chicago, Described
. by Dean Bates as Forceful
Judge Harry Olson, of the Chicago'
Municipal court, has been secured for
the annual class day of the senior law
class on Monday, May 27, to speak on
"A Plan for a Unified Court System".
The program, which is part of the
regular 'Commencement week series,
will be under the direction of the
graduating class of the Law school.
Judge. Olson is one of the most
prominent men in the field of court
organization in the country, according
to Dean Henry M. Bates, of the Law
school. The Chicago court system,
which was established under. his di-
'rect jupervision as chief justice, was.
the first of Its kind in the country and
4y become the model for the New
York, Philadelphia, Detroit, and
Cleveland, systems that were estab-
lished later.
He was a member of the commis-
sion sent over to England some time
ago to' study the organization of them
new British system, and on his re-
turn was made chief justice of the
Chicago court with complete control
of its administration and organization.
Judge Olson is a nationally known
figure, according to Dean Bates, who
says 'his achievements in the field of
judicial adminstration have done
much for the legal system of the.
country. His ability as a lecturer is
well recoknized, added Dean' Bates, as
he is in great demand as a speaker
before, bar and, legal asociations. He
spoke in Ann Arbor five years ago
and made a favorable impression. i

Committee Will Report to Literary'
Faculty on Proposed Changes
Members of _the literary faculty will
hear a preliminary report on revisio .
of entrance requirements to the Uni-
versity at their regular meeting next
Tuesday. The faculty committee
which has this problem in charge will
confer with 50 high school men on the
entrance requirements revision dur-
ing the Summer session following
which the changes will be reported
to the faculty for adoption." The re-
port to be' made Tuesday is merely a
preliminary one.
The real changes advocated by thV
committee are an increase in more
advanced' work and careful discrimin-
ation in, the official recommendation
of high school graduates. The pro-
posed entrance' requirements are uni-
form for the literary' college, engi-
neeriig college, architectural college,
and pharmacy college except as to
prescribed units.
A proposed change. is that at least
4 of 12 units of! academic subjects
must be such as are regularly sched-
uled for the third and fourth years
of 'high school curriculum. This may
be raised even to t or 6 units.
Another change prescribes 1 unit
of history for all admitted students.
Plan B, which now provides for ad-
mission to the literary college of
graduates on the North Central list'
without prescribed units of language,
ma'thematics, or science is abolished
in the plan.
Rules governing provisional admis-
sion and granting of advanced cred-
it for post-graduate high school stud-
ies, now in force in the literary, col-
lege, is recommended for adoption in,
the other colleges.

(Special from Daily Illini)
Champaign, Ill., May 24.-Illinois'
baseball squad will be drilled this
week for the opening contest of the
decisive two-game series with Mich-
igan, to be played at Ann Arbor next
Saturday. Despite the impressive
showing of the Illini heretofore, Coach
Carl Lundgren has various faults to
correct and the Illinois field diamond
will be a busy place daily until Fri-
day when Capt. Tom Johnson and his
followers entrain for the Wolverine

feeling between the universities' stu-
dent bodies has been created. The
soft pedal has been-applied in both
institutions to the ,"kid stuff" which
threatened to disrupt athletic rela-
tions unless it was eliminated. Mich-
igan track men were well pleased with
their treatment during their recent in-
vasion of the Illinois field and it is
expected that the Michigan-Illinois
baseball game, however hard fought,
will be another marker on the path of
good feeling.
Yost Plans Memorial
Illinois partisans are elated over the
proposal of Coach Yost "of Michigan,l
for Michigan men to contribute a
memorial column in the new Illinois!
stadium to honor Curtis G. Redden,
the great Wolverine athlete, a natie
of Illinois. Yost has made this sug-
gestion as a result of his recent visit
to Illinois to examine the Illini plan"
for a great stadium and recreational
field.' The spirit 'of this proposal,
whether it is carried through or not,
has been most pleasing to the Illini.
When the Wolverine nine appears on
Illinois field on June 4 for the finall
battle, Illinois leaders will see to it
that they are heartily received.
