Plans for Next Year Outlined Before
450 Men at Meeting Last Night
More than 450 men who are inter-
ested in the work of the Upperclass
Advisers for freshmen met in the
Union and heard the report of the
committee's work for this year and
made plans for handling the work
with next year's freshmen.
The committee is under the direc-
tion of W. W. Gower, '22, chairman.
He told of the problems and results
of this year's work and how the com-
mittee might function better next
The present plan of, upperclassmen
advisers for freshmen is a compara-
tively new one, having been started
only a year ago. Consequently It is
as yet not fully ,developed but its re-
sults this year are considered satis
factory in view of the conditions ad-
verse to its success.
The meeting last evening was held
to eliminate if possible the difficulties
of this years' work and to get an ear-
ly start for next year.

t Conditions which are likely to arise
t in the coming Spring election were
f discussed with E. L. Boxell, '23L, who
t is chairiman of the committee in
, charge. It was specifically agreed
'r that no person who had not registered,
e would be allowed to cast a ballot. Dif-
o ficulty experienced in the counting of
e the ballots last year caused a ruling
t that no one would be allowed in the
counting room and no early returns'
would be announced.
d It was decided to allow the senior'
dental class to vote on Monday, May
d 1, the day preceding the general elec-
r tion. This action was. taken because
n the class as a body is visiting the
t Parke-Davis company in Detroit upon
- election day. The ballots will be
1 kept under lock until the evening of
d May 2, when all votes will be counted..
e Registration for those who, because
of sickness or other suitable reason,
r were unable to put their names on the
e lists, will be held from 3 to 5 o'clock
, this afternoon 'in the booth at the
- Union. Registration may be made by
n proxy in case of inability to register
* at this time.
s The three events for the Spring
e games were decided upon. Friday
a afternon the annual tug-of-war across
- the Huron river will be held, and Sat-
urday eve*ts on Ferry field will in-
clude the obstacle race and the rope
tying contest.
Due-to the action takn by the fresh-:
man class in re-instating L. T. Orr,1
subject to his , good behavior, the
council dropped the charges that it
had entertained against him.
My 7 was set as the time for sen-
lors to appear with their class canes.
An earlier date had been considered
but was found inadvisable.
A warning was issued underclass-
men against hazing in any manner,
' the council calling attention to the
fact that such action was against
t University rule.
Following the meeting officers of
l the council nominated candidates for
the Student Advisory committee, to be
s elected at the coming elections. The
nominations were as follows: from
the sophomores, William C. Kratz, Jr.,
t '24E, D. W. Steketee, '24, T. G. Kin-
del, '24, and Harry Hoey, '24; from
the juniors, W. A. Cotton, Jr., '23E,
Bowen E. Schumacher, '24L, H. S.
Case, '23, and Paul Watzel, '23.

Voltaire and Rousseau Called Great
Factors for Progess in Second
"The Ideal of Progress' was the sub-
ject of the lecture on which Prof.
Charles Cestre, recently appointed to
a chair in American literature and clv-
ilization at the University of Paris,
spoke yesterday afternoon in Natural1
Science auditorium. He will deliver
the third of his series of four lectures
on "The Ideal of Equality- and Solid-
arity" at 3 o'clock tomorrow after- 1
noon in Natural Science auditorium,
instead of at 4:15 o'clock as previous-
ly announced,J in order to avoid con-.
flict with the concert in Hill auditor-
ium at the latter time.
Professor Cestre spoke. of the two
great Frenchmen, Voltaire and Rous-
seau as great representatives and fac-
tors in the field of progress. "Rous-
seau," he said, "was a man of great
intellect and understanding, and of
depth of feeling and persuasion suf-I
ficient to wield great influence upon
his contemporaries. In fact his in-'
fluence upon Jefferson was enormous,
and that great statesman embodied
many of the doctrines of the French
philosopher. His influence upon his;
own people was even greater than up-
on our own, and it was principally
through his teachings of individualism'
and the sacredness of liberty that the.
French revolution was brought
In. speaking of Voltaire, Professori
Cestre said that all his teachings and
philosophy were moderate and rea-
sonable, that they did not disprove
Christianity at all, and that they
yielded a great part of the light whichj
later led men to adopt democratic
