"┬░CEASED IN 1916
William B. Sears, oldest Michigan
honor man, died at his home in Sag -
inaw on Tuesday, May 2. He was
over 90 years of age and the oldest of
Michigan men holding the degree of i
Master of Eingineering. This degree]
was granted to Mr. Sears in 191,
Mr.Sars has long been connected]
with Ann-Arbor and the University.
He was bor on Nov. 25, 1831. His7
first connection with Michigan came I
when he took charge of the surveysj
of the old Flint and Pere Marquette
railroad across the wilderness of the,
pine country of this section. In 1862
he was appointed city engineer of East I
Saginaw and a year later completed'
the first street car line in that city.
In 1866 Mr. Sears went to Minneso-'
ta as chief engineer of the Winuna
and St. Peter railroad, but he return-
ed to Michigan the next year and took,
up a position at the head of the Flint
and Pere Marquette railroad again.]
Continuing in this capacity for 37
years he retired in1903 and took upj
the duties of consulting engineer, in
which capacity he has ,served to the
present day.
! Mr. Sears was for many years one]
of the most active men in the civil
engineering profession in the state. Hp
was a past president of the Michigan.
Engineering society and has been a'
supporter of the University for over
50 years._

Coach Fielding H. Yost' has written
an article on college professionalism
which will be published in 200 news-
papers and magazines.throughout the
United States, the official date for re-
lease of the article being May 8. Stu-
dents will have opportunity to obtain
the article through the medium of
Chimes appearing on the campus on
that date and in which the article will
be published.
In this artile. the athletic director
takes occsion to strike at all forms
of American college professionalism.
He flays.the spirit ofthe modern o-
ege athlete that causes him to dis-
card his amateur standing in the sum-
mer or at any other time. Several
probable remedies that would apply
to the Conference controversy on pro-
fessionalism are suggested by Coach
Campaign headquarters of the Sal-
vation Army receipts reports $5,598.50
in cash, and $3,344.25 in pledges as
the results of their drive last., week.
It is also reported that the drive will
continue during this week because of
the fact that the quota of $30,000 for
the citadel was not subscribed.
The faculty team at the University
sent in reports that they'had received
$443.00. This team is under the di-
rection of Prof. J. H. Cissell, of the
enginering college. Fraternity and
sorority houses have all been ap-
proached in regard to donations, and
it is expected ' that they will give a
good- account of themselves, but so
far there has been no return from
them. .

"There are nowhere any better op-

declared Professor E. C. Case, of the
department of paleontology, yester-
day, in speaking of the coral collec-

that this collection of coral fossils
possessed by the University is one of
the greatest treasures of paleontology
in the world, and is used by scien-
tists as a standard'reference set, few
people on the campus are even aware
of its existence, according to Prof..

regions has been obtained a great

of utmost perfection.
Another place in which flourishing
coral reefs have been found is along
the southern shore of the northern
peninsula near the towns of Engadine
and Gould City. Here the surface of
the shore is covered by many species
of so-called wasp net coral, chain.

Early indications point to the fact
that a large number of students wilt

tion at Douglas Lake during its four-

This figure represents a 50 per cent
increase over the number of applica-

William Wrigley, Jr., and Prosperity
That. business is improving in the East and that this conditioh is spreading to the Mid-
dle West by degrees, is the opinion of William Wrigley, Jr., presidentbf the William Wrig-
ley Jr. Co., Chicago.
The good old American dollar is comring back into its own. People from one end of
the 'nation to the other are getting around to the idea that the only basis for real prosperity
is an honest day's work for a fair day's wage.
The United States as a whole has been on a "business spree" for the past five years.
Prices, up to recently,'-were out'of all sense of proportion for the value received.
The greatest cure for hard times, Mr. Wrigley says, is to stop talking about hard times,
* get to work.and keep money and goods circulating.
"'T1e year 1921 was regarded as a pretty ba'd period for lots of concerns in the East
and Middle West," said Mr. Wrigley. "For us it was the best year in the thirty years I
have been in the chewing gum manufacturing-industry.
We are spending $1 I ,OO a day this year to push Wrigley's Chewing Gum.
