Period Would Allow Graduates Time
to View Student Activities
and New Buildings
President Marion L. Burton express-
ed yesterday his unqualified approval
of the plan proposed recently for a
homecoming week. The plan as out-
lined by The Daily calls for a full
week of activities late in May, dur-
ing which the May Festival, the
Spring games, senior Swing-out, and
Cap Night would be held. The week
would ,be officially one of homecoming
for Michigan alumni, and the various
spring events would be concentrated
in a few days to give the pjlumni an
opportunity to witness Michigan life
at its height.
Is in Hearty Accord
"I am heartily in sympathy with the
movement," said the President. "I
think it would be a *ne thing for the
alumni to return to Ann Arbor for a
week of homecoming, and I believe
that such a period would be much
more effective if held in the spring
than at any other time.
"Homecoming days.such as we have
had, coming on the date of some foot-
ball game, show only;,,one side of Ufni-
versity life. They are too closely con-
nected with fotball to the exclusion
of other University ilnerests, and last-
ing as they do for a, single day, the"
homecoming of the alumni is too
hurried; they come, see a football
game, and go home again.
"A solid wok, or at least several
days devoted to a celebraton of this
sprt would not only show the gradu-
ates some of the best activities of our
University, but would also allow them
the privilege of viewing the campus
and the buildings which have been
erected since their tme.
Problems Arise
"We would have, of course, to con-
sider the housing problem, so that
every visitor could be provided with
satisfactory quarters. That is always
a situation that must.be squarely fac-
ed. Then, too, there is the thought
that homecoming week would come
close, to fnal examinations, and pro-
vision would no doubthave to be made
to equalize the burden of the added
"I am, however, strongly in favor
with the idea as a whole. It would be
a fine thing both for the alumni and
for the University as. an institution."
MARCH 31 i
Chaperones, details of the dinner
and a general plan of decoration for
the Sophomore Prom which will be
given Friday evening of March 31 in
the Union ball room, were announced
on yesterday by John P. Bernard, '24E,
chairman of the Prom committee.
The list of chaperones, which is
made up completely of faculty mem-
bers and their wives, is as follows:

Burton, Dean Mortimer E. Coley and
Mrs. Cooley, ,Coach Fielding H. Yost
and Mrs. Yost, Dean Joseph A. Burs-
ley and Mrs. Bursley, Dean W. H.
Butts and Mrs. Butts, Dean John R.
Effinger and Mrs. Effinger, Prof. R.
M. Wenley and Mrs. Wenley, Prof.
Emil Lorch and Mrs. Lorch, Prof.
Jesse S. Reeves and Mrs. Reeves,
Prof. Evans Holbrook and Mrs. Hol-

brook, and Prof. Peter Field and Mrs.
The dinner, which, is a traditional
feature of the. Prom, will be served
in the main dining room and the
women's dining roomof the Union. To
avoid overcrowding the dining rooms
the guests will be divide into three
groups, each of which will enter the
dining room at an hour to be designat-
ed on checks which will be given out
at the cloak rooms. The first of the
groups will descend to the dining roon
about midnight.
Decorations will be carried out en-
tirely with flowers and floral crea-
tions, one of the features being a
shield done in the class colors and
constructed with flowers. The deco-
rating will be in charge of the Blu-
Maize shop. No corsages may be
worn by guests, according to thei

Confliction of dates has caused the
Varsity Glee club to change its spring
concert date from Thursday, Mar. 30,
to Wednesday, March 29. A Michigan
song program is being arranged with
several specialty numbers such' as the
banjo and mandolin quintette, a comic
song quartette, and new selections of
Hawaiian music by Tang and Tav-
Plans for the trip during the spring
recess have been abandoned. Sveral
week end trips to towns in the state
are being arranged instead. The man-
agement of the combined clubs is
preparing a style of concert for March
29 which will not only emphasize fine
vocal music but will be varied and
snappy in every detail.

have been saved but for the indiffer-
ence of many who have not seen the
importance of their contributions, it
is said. The death rate, which is re-1
ported to be increasing,took a bigger
jump during the winter months.
,Methods of increasing the interest-
in all branches of athletics at the
University were discussed at a meeting
of all coaches, captains, and managers{
of all sports last night at the Union.
Expressions from the men present
brought forth the idea that some plan
should be evolved by which the stu-
dents should begin as freshmen and
continue their activities is some sport
throughout their college term. ri
"Everyone should take "some part inl
some way," said' Coach Fielding H.
Yost. "It is a question of sticking to
the job for anyone to develop into a
good athlete, and we should have more
men out as freshmen who will remain
interested enough to work for the
four years..' It is to the advantage of
each student to work out in some
sport, for he will derive untold bene-
fit from the physical training."
The meeting was primarily for the
purpose of securing close co-operation
among, the coaches, managers, and
captains of the various teams, and
from the campus, towards athletics..
Zeta beta Tau
Buys New 'Home
Zeta Beta Tau, general fraternity,
now located at 807 South State street,
has purchased the estate of Prof. Stan-
islaus Zowski, of the engineering col-
lege, it was announced yesterday. The
property is located at 200 Washtenaw
avenue. It is comprised of an acre
and a half of land upon. which stands

the present Zowski home.
Extensive improvements in the.house
now on the property, in order to fit for
fraternity use, are being planned. Re-
modeling will probably begin July 1
when the estate is to become the prop-
erty of the fraternity.
It is expected that the property will
be ready to receive the fraternity by,
the opening of school next fall.
Apparent misunderstanding among
some students, relative to the require-
ment of taking physical examinations,
led to an announcement yesterday by
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director of
the Health service, that upperclassmen
were compelled to take the examina-
tions. The announcement holds only
for juniors and sophomores who have
received an appointment to take their
examinations. There is no necessity
of seniors calling up the Health serv-
ice for appointments.

"Recent Discoberies Of PapyriT
Is Subject Of Prof. Kelsey 's Talk

a com-

"Recent Discoveries of Papyri" was
the subject of a lecture by Prof. Fran-
cis W. Kelsey, of the Latin depart-
ment, delivered before a joint meet-
ing of the society of the Sigma Xi
and the Junior Research club last
night in Natural Science auditorium.
Describes Manufacture
Professor Kelsey began his lecture
with a brief description of the man-
ufacture of papyrus by the ancie'nt
Egyptians. He explained that, until
about 1575,' there was little definite
knowledge concerning this subject,,
but that recent discoveries, notably
those of Professor Grenfell of Oxford;
university, have made quite clear
much that was hitherto not under-
stood. Of especial importance in this
field of endeavor was the discovery by-
Professor Grenfell in 1910 of about 60
invaluable 'documents buried on the;
site of an ancient monastery in'

entiflc importance, revealing many
features of the social, commercial, le-
gal, scientLL.n _d religious life of the
times. Prof .or Kelsey's intimate
knowledge of this subject has been
derived from first-hand study inj
Egypt, from which country the has
only recently returned.
Inspection Made
At the close of the lecture the audi-
ence adjourned to the: Library, where
the papyri referred to by Professor
Kelsey were on exhibition. Profes-,
sors Boak, Bonner, Robbins, Karpin-
ski and Sanders, each of whom is now;
at work upon the papyri bearing upon'
his own subject, were present to ex-
plain the documents. '
Professor Kelsey declares that from
12 to 15 years will probably be re-
quired before these scholars now
studying and translating documents
will have completed their task..
