Co-education O.K.
Says Cornell Dean
"It is my impression that women
graduating from co-educational col-
leges and universities adapt them-
selves more immediately to associa-
tions in the world of affairs than do
those graduating from women's col-
leges," said Miss Georgia White, dean
of women at Cornell university, yes-
terday afternoon.
Dean White, who is the guest here
of Dean Myra B. Jordan, believes this
to be due in a large measure to the ne-
cessity for co-operation among men
and women in college activities.
Whether or not they are more success-
ful in the long run, she concluded,
depends entirely on the general abil-
ity, fitness and personality/'of the in-
dividual.

Author of Five Books
"T h e profoundest philosophical
thinker in the Methodist church" is
the opinon expressed of Bishop Mc-
Connell by Rev. Arthur W. Stalker of
the Methodist church. Bishop Mc~on-
nell was 'the regular university
preacher at the University of Chicago
for many years: In the opinon of Dr.
Stalker he is the most outstanding
man of the Methodist church in the
relation of the organized church to
labor. '
He has written five books, including
one entitled, "The Eminence of God."
The majority of his lecture and books
are of a religious nature, but only, in
so far as they deal with non-religious
subjects in a religious manner.
Has Had Wide Experience
Bishop McConnell graduated from
Ohio Wesleyan university with -the
Bachelor 'of Science degree in 1894,
and from Boston university withthe
Doctor of Philosophy degree in 1897.
,He was later granted the degree of
Doctor of Laws in 1909, from Wesley-
an university. He has served in the
position of pastor in the following
cities: Chelmsford, Mash., Newton
Upper Falls, Mass., Ipswich, Mass.,
Cambridge, Mass., and New York City.
He was president of De Pauw univer-
sity from 1909 to 1912, at 'which time
he was made bishop in the Methodist
Episcopal church.
It has been mainly through the ef-
forts of Rev. Stalker, and Dr. E. W.
Springer, superintendent of the Hom-
oeopathic hospital, that Bishop Mc-
Connell has been secured for the
University services.
REIGN OF IGETIND
BROEN TRES REMAIN
Although weather conditions had so
moderated yesterday afternoon as to
give relief to. ice-bound Ann Arbor,
the weather forecast brought gloom
to those in hope of seeing springtime
here immediately. The storn has
taken &. surprising toll in property
damage,. and disfigured trees and
shrubs, besides having crippled a
large part of the wire comuncatione
in the city. Severfal minor accidents
were also reported. #'.
Broken tree limbs continued to fall,
menacing, street traffic and pedes-
trians.' City Forester Gallup stated
that the soft maples and elms 'were
particularly injured due to the great-
er possibility of ice formation on
their more slender branches. Tree
damage will necessitate a great deal
of work by the city in order to pre-
serve the growth of the trees.
Prof. Russell Watson, of the forest-
ry department, declared that the lum-
ber districts suffered a loss in the
hard wood trees. The soft wood trees,
.being mostly fir, were supple enough
to support the added weight. Most of
the limbs that fell were defective, yet
the scars that are left are sources of
decay. In oder to avoid this, these
"sores" should be painted over' witb

ENGINEERINGSCLSS
ROOMS .ABANDONED
Abandonment 'Follows Invstigait'on;
Walls Sink, Floors in Danger
Of Collapse
ICE STORM REVEALS 'UNSAFE
CONDITION OF OLD BUILDING
Three class rooms in the old Engi-
neering building, condemned by the
building and grounds department aft-
er an investigation in which it was
found that the walls were sinking and
the floors in danger of collapse, have
been abandoned and will be torn out.
Wall Out of Place
During the severe ice storm Thurs-
day occupants of the rooms noticed
that several cracks in the wal had
appeared and further investigation in
the cellar proved that the whole
northwest' corner of the building had
sunk..
The buildings and grounds depart-J
ment immediately conducted a thor-I
ough examination of' the north and
west wally which were braced so as
to prevent further .trouble, jand de-
clared. the three northwest, corner
rooms unsafe. for further use. The
west wall had slipped out of place
three,inches at the foundation and had
sunk one inch already and the possi-
'bility of sliding entirely out of place
and letting the floors crash dow was
a likely one.
Storm is Cause
There are several causes for this
happeniig, but the recent storm un-
doubtedly was the main reason for the
occurence. The water collected in the,
excavation ditch between the build
ing and the Clements library founda-
tion, softening the gravel at thefoun-
dation and washing 'it down into the
footings of the new library structure
which are three feet lower than those,
of the Engineering building. This
.undermined them.' Water also collect-
ed in the time worn cracks l etween
the bricks and the freezing may have
loosened them.
Work on tearing out the dangerous
part -of f the building will begin to-
morrow. This will not be an addition-
al expense or require extra labor as
the whole building wai to have come
down at an early date. The rest of'
the building is perfectly safe and will
continue to be used for class rooms.
PROFS CROSSlADDRESlS
FIRST DISCUSSIN GROUP
Discussion groups, modelled on the
Oxford university plan, were started
here yesterday afternoon when a
group of eight students met informal-
ly with Prof. Arthur L. Cross, of the
history department, at the Union. The
students petitioned, the commitee,
which is headed by James G. Frey,'22,
who secured Professor Cross to speak
to the group.
He diiscussed various phases' of
English political problems, and de-
scribed the personalities of many of
the promiiinent English figures includ-
ing Lloyd George, Arthur .Balfour,
Mr. Asquith and others. He also told
of his trip to the Tahiti Islands last
summer. The discussion group meet-
ing was the first of, its kind held here
since the inauguration of the plan by
which any group of students can se-
cure faculty members, townspeople
and 'athletic authorities to meet infor-
mally with them.

More than 900 students who will aid
in soliciting funds for the .comple-
tion of the Union swimming powl dur-
ing spring vacation are called to a
giant mass meeting to be held at
7:30 o'clock next Wednesday evening
in the assembly hall of the Union.:
The meeting will be addressed by a
prominent speaker, will be short, and
instructio*~ will, be given to the
workers. It will be the final meeting
before thei drive opens next Friday.
Preliminary Meetings Held
Pamphlets describing the pool will
be distributed to the student solicit-
ors at the meeting, and lists of alum-
ni will be handed out. The goal of
the campaign is $28,00. The amount
necessary for the pool is $40,000, of
which $12,000 has already been
raised.
Preliminary meetings have been
held in which city chairmen of the
seven organized states, New York,
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan,, Indi-
ana, Illinois, and Wisconsin, have
completed their organizations. More
workers, however, are still needed,
and volunteers as well as students
who have already been assigned to
work, are asked to come to the meet-
ing.
Volunteers are also esired to work
in their home communities which
may be outside the seven organized
states where the drive will be push-
ed most intensively. These men are
also to come to the meeting. Complete
lists of alumni have been placed at
the deskin the lobby of the Union,
where the nantes may be, seen tomor-
rbw afternoon, and also Tuesday and
Wednesday afternoons. Volunteers
are asked to take down names of
alumni to see, so that the drive may
be even more widespread than just
the seven organized states.
Workers Wanted
There are many places still to be
filled in the committees for the sev-
'en states, and more men are needed'
to complete. the quota of workers.
Alumni organizations are behind the
campaign, and have expressed them-
selves so in letters received by
Thomas J. Lynch, '23E, general chair-
man of the drive.
Emphasis has been laid on the fact
that the success of the drive will de-
pend upon the number of small sub-
scriptions that are obtained. A little
from every alumnus, is to be the slo-
gan of the workers. The general
chairman is stressing the importance
of every solicitor attending the meet-
ing.

'ENSIAN NOTICE

Proof of the general organiza-
tions section of the 1922 Mich-
iganensian has been received
from the printers, and must be
inspected by the various organ-
izations before 5 o'clock Monday
evening. The general organiza-
tions section includes musical'
and dramatic 'societies, oratoric-
al, literary, scientific, and honor-
ary societies, sectional clubs and
other general campus organiza-
tions, not including fraternities.

Inaccurate editing caused two mis-
takes in an article of Saturday's
Daily headed "Detroit Astronomer
Leaving for 'Italy."
In the article the inference was
drawn that Professor Curtiss was
leaving for Italy. This is not cor-
rect.
Prof. Ralph H. Curtiss, of the De-
troit Observatory of the University of
Michigan, left yesterday for Washing-
ton, D. C., to attend the American see-
tion of 'the International Astronomical,
union meeting., This mneeting is be-
ing held in preparation for the Inter-
national Astronomical Union gather-
ing, which will be held in Italy, on
April 20. Professor Curtiss will not
