THE MICHIGAN DAILY
JAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 1921.
To the Members of the University:
At the meeting of the Board of Regents on Jan. 7, it was decided here-
after to hold the regular meetings of the Board on the last Friday of the
month beginning with March. The next regular meeting therefore will oc-
cur on Friday, Feb. 4, but the March meeting will not be held until March
25. If the business of the University requires it a special meeting of the
Board may be called sometime between February 4 and March 25.
In this connection it may be well to emphasize the fact that all commu-
nications regarding =the affairs of the University which must be acted upon
by the Board of Regents should be in this office eight days prior to the meet-
ing 'of the Board. Our procedure in handling the business is such that they
President no longer presents a "personal program." All items therefore .
must be in hand eight days prior to a meeting if they are to be sure of con-
sideration. Moreover, it is suggested that the communications be sent in
just as early as possible in order to avoid congestion at the last moment
and particularly in order to make it possible to gather any necessary facts
which bear upon the problems presented for consideration. By this method
hasty action is avoided and the interests of the University may be given
careful and judicious attention.
M. L. BURTON, President.
To All Student Organizations:
Notice is hereby given that any student organization wishing to give
a dance, house-party, or social entertainment of any kind, in Ann Arbor or
elsewhere, must secure permission of the Committee on Student Affairs.
Failure to observe this order will render the offending organization liable
to discipline. M. L BURTON, President.

It was so directed as to apply to every phase of college life.
Here are a few of the things at which it was aimed:
Are Michigan men here to absorb book learning or are they
here to get an education?
Are Michigan men thinking or are they allowing what mental
powers they have to be wasted in frivolous discussions of teas,
dansants, et cetera?
Is everything on the Micnigan campus as you would have it, or
has something occurred to give rise to a "pet peeve"?
AGAIN - WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT ITT.
The Michigan Daily is compiling the sentiment of the campus
on the charge, "Michigan is asleep." Discussions are invitedfrom
everyone and anyone connected in any way with the University.
Your name will not be used if you so desire, but all communica-
tions on the subject must be signed as an evidence of good faith.
Address them to the Sunday Editor, Michigan Daily, Ann Ar-
bor. They should not exceed 250 words in length and should be
mailed not later than Jan. 17, 1921.

PROF. SHE PARD OUTLINES
USE OF PSYCHOLOGY TESTS
Prof. J. F. Shepard, of the psychol-
ogy department, appeared before the
engineering faculty at their recent
meeting, outlining the psychology
tests which are to be conducted with
the engineering faculty again this
These tests. are purely in the ex-
perimental stage, according to Dean
Mortimer E. Cooley, of the engineer-
ing college. and are used only as a
basis of investigation. No action is
taken as a result of the statistics se-
cured. They are, however, filed away
and kept for future reference.
Commenting on the nature of the
questions asked, Dean Cooley said
that they were of the same general
nature of the army tests for officers
excepting that they applied to the
teaching profession. They gauge the
approximate mental efficiency of the
person examined. The tests were giv-
en for the first time last year.

search to the University" was the
