Terms Expire This Year
All terms expire this year, so elec-
tions will be started with a clean
slate. One member will be elected
to serve one year on the Senate
council, the other for two years. Each
year hereafter one newmember will
be elected to fill the vacancy of that
year. No person is to be eligible for
re-election within less than a year
after having been on the council.
On the Library committee, two
members will be elected each year to
serve for three year periods. There
must be at least one member from
each of the groups required for grad-
uation from the literary college.
State Eligibility Rules
These men will be eligible for re-
election to a second term but not a
third, and cannot serve again within
less than a year from the expiration
of the last term.
Formal adoption of this plan took
place at yesterday's meeting. The
elections will be by ballot and will be
held at the next session.
A number of complaints have
been received by the Student
council from, students who sent
in their yellow coupons for Chi-
cago game tickets before the
time limit set by the Athletic l
association, and had these cou-
pons returned.
All men who have complaints
to make in this regard should
submit their evidence to Stu-
dent council members who will

his talk to the freshman class Mon-
day afternoon in Hill auditorium.
The subject of his speech resolved
itself into the word "Criticism." He
said the freshman class had probably
by now secured the impression that
all the upperclassmen had to do was
to criticise. He then went on to dis-
prove the fact and finally showed by
a series of illustrations why "real"
criticism could be the best thing in
Serves as Check and Spur
"Criticism serves as a splendid so-
cial check, is a spur to efficiency, and
is one of the finest things in the
world," he stated. Pointing out that
we must not only criticise, but must
combine our minds to actually solve
the problem in hand, he cited a num-
ber of examples of seemingly minor,
things that need stressing. A
"Be the right kind of a critic," fin-
ished President Burton. "Get the
facts, get a full knowledge of the sub-
ject and then don't base your judg-
ment on trivialities. Be fair and just.
Be able to react properly to criticism
-to proceed to it, or to quietly ignore
it. Criticism must be love; get the
right attitude toward it. That word
plus friendliness means growth."
Nine Leaders Chosen
The chairman of the Student coun-
cil committee on under class conduct
opened the session with a short talk
on the intention of the committee.-
The men of the class elected nine
members to act as leaders during
the class games this Saturday. Harry
Kipke was chosen as captain. The
lieutenants are: Stephens, Briggs,
Stracke, Whitfield, Goldwater, Heil,
Birke, and Murane.
Tryouts for acts in the Spotlight
vaudeville are still wanted, accord-
ing to the committee in charge of the
entertainment. The program has not
as yet been arranged, although it is
stated that a number of good acts
have been secured.
At the present time there remains'
only three more weeks before the
vaudeville will be presented,,and it is
the hope of the men in charge to ob-
tain several mares short and "snap-
py" acts to make the piogram com-
plete. Those who have talent suit-
able to the vaudeville stage are ask-
ed to try out for the Spotlight, and
to see Mr. Shuter in his office, room

o'clock throughout the week.

Arranges for Minstrel Show to Be
Given This Season in Whitney
To make the production of the Glee
and Manddlin club the best that it has
ever been, ad to place it in a class
with the Union opera, is the aim of
William Wheeler, director of the
singing of the club, E. Mortimer Shu-
ter, in charge of the production work,
Earl V. Moore director of the musi-
cal activities of the Union, and Fred-
erick R. Storrer, '21E, chairman of
the Union combined clubs committee.
Quite different from former years,
the program this year will feature a
minstrel show. "This will be a real
first class show," said Mr. Shuter yes-
terday, "and not the common minstrel
show as is usually understood by the
term." In order to give it the proper
stage settings and the artistic envi-
ronment necessary for such a per-
formance, permission has been asked
to use the Whitney theater.
Specialty Act Men Wanted
Soft shoe dancing, novelty acts,
duets, quartettes, and a saxophone
sextette, which will be a replica of
the famous Brown brothers, are some
of the promised attractions. Men who
can do this kind of work or act as
the proverbially funny end men, are
asked to see Mr. Shuter at once in
room 308 of the Union. Book writers
who can compose dialogue for the
show are also wanted. The Glee club
has been selected, but men are needed
for the specialty acts and the writing
of the dialogue.
"On the whole, the voices of those
who tried out this year are better
than I have ever had in this class of
work," Mr. Wheeler said yesterday.
OperaWork Not to Conflct
Work on the Glee club production
will not interfere with anyone taking
nart in the Union opera, officials say.
It is believed that the minstrel show
will be so goad - that permission has
already been asked to take a trip to
several cities in this state during the
Christmas vacation. High fares make
a longer trip prohibitive.
The first rehearsal will be held at
7:15 o'clock tonight in the reading
room on the second floor of the Union.

ity has been passed upon, are an-
nounced as the members of this year's

Will Present Proposition to National
Convention of Minor
Leagues Today
(By Associated Press)
Chicago, Nov. '8. - Major base-
ball leagues were broken up today
and a new 12 club league was com-
posed of eight national clubs and the
three of the American league which
sided with them in the plans for a re-
organization of baseball. The 12th
club will be chosen later.,
Organization of the new league
came after five American league clubs
had refused to reply to an ultimatum
issued by the other 11 clubs giving
them an hour and a half in which to
join the organization.
Lasker Plan Followed
After organizing the new league the
baseball magnates proceeded with the
Lasker plan for civilian control of
professional baseball and appointed
Judge Kenesaw M. Landis, of Chicago,
chairman of the tribunal which will
govern the game in the future.
Judge Landis, if he accepts the po-
sition, will be the supreme dictator
of all clubs joining in the plan and
will receive a salary of $50,000 a year.
Second and third members of the tri-
bunal will be appointed later. Ore
of them will be chosen by the minor
Kansas City Meeting Place
Representatives of the new league
left tonight for Kansas City, where
the National association of mino'
leagues meets tomorrow, to present
the proposition to them.
JudgeeLandis was notified of his ap-
pointment by a committee of five
members. He told them he would
take the matter under advisement for
a few days.
The plans for the new league and a
.new controlling body contain frequent
references to the minor leagues which
are given assurances that they will
not be overlooked in the administra-
tion of the game and that their terri-
tory will not be invaded.
Action Follows Long Session
The action came after an all day,
session of both factions with neither
side yielding to the other. ,
The five clubs which stood with Ban
Johnson of the American league are
Detroit, Philadelphia, Cleveland,
Washington and St. Louis.
"We are the majority of the Amer
ican league and consequently are the
American league," Clark Griffith of
the Washington club said. "The Amer-
I can league will operate next year
with or without the New York, Chi-
cago and Boston clubs."
Ex-G. R. Football Players to Meet
Men who formerly played football
in Grand Rapids with either of the
local high schools are meeting at 7:15
o'clock tonight in the Union, the room

in the lobby.
