'es Artistic Aims
At Union Reception
A dramatic sketch of a scene on a
New England farm, the locale which'
Mr. Frost has rendered picturesque by
his poetry, was transformed by his
colloquial charm and interpolated ex-
planations, given with complete in-
Two other poems read from manu-
script, one telling the remarkable
deeds of one "Paul the lumberman",
and the other, a lyric piece, of the
shimmering beauty of a New England
hillside in thaw, were followed by a.
short talk in a more serious vein. The'
poet said, "I have been hunting all
my life, through all the years when I'
have visited the universities of Amer-
ica. A friend of mine, J. C. Squire, the
editor of England's foremost literary
magazine, the Mercury, will be in
Ann Arbor next week, and he will be
looking for what I have long been
searching for - an intellectual enter-'
prise among the rising generation of
America that will make our great ci-
ties the intellectual and artistic cen-
ters of the world The great test of
a college student's character is found
when we know the sort of work for
which he will neglect his studies.
When we have in our colleges an in-
tellectual enterprise rightly .directed
and of ever increasing force, America
may hope to attain a position in phi-
losophy and the arts equal to that
now held in science."
Incorrect wording and' ambiguous
statements have sponsored an im-
pression not intended with regard to
members of Michigan's faculty who
appear in the last issue of Who's
Faculty men in the scientific de-
partments were consciously omitted
from the article in the Sunday's
Daily; it was not intended to inti-
mate that the list published was com-
plAe. The names were given The
Daily by a professor. Believing that
they would be of interest, The Daily
published them. The following list
embraces members of the Literary
faculty, who are affiliated with the
scientific and technical fields.
In the mnathematics department are
Profs. W. W. Beman, W. B. Ford, J.
W. Glover, L. C. Karpinski, J. L.
Markley, and' Registrar A. G. Hall.
From the chemistry department are
Profs. S. L. Bigelow, E. DeM. Camp-
bell, and M. Gomberg. In the botany
department are Profs. B. M. Davis, C.
H. Kauffman, and F. C. Newcombe.
Three men from the psychology group
are Profs. W. B. Pillsbury, J. F. Shep-
ard, and G. M. Whipple. Four de-
partmets with only one representative
are physics, paleontology, minerol-
ogy, and forestry with Profs. H. M.
Randall, E. C. Case, E. H. Kraus, and
F. Roth, respectively.
In the astronomy department are
Profs. R, H, Curtiss and W. J. Hus-
sey. Representatives from the zoolo-
gy department are Profs. J. Rieghard
and A. F. Shull, while in the geology
departmetn are Profs. W. H. Hobbs
and F. Leverett.
Attention is directed to the fact that
there are remaining many members in
other schools and colleges on the
campus whose names appear in Who's
Who, but at present The Daily is un-
able to publish this data.

Stace, Harrison, McNitt Talk Before
Student Journalists at
"Dig deep-don't be satisfied with
surface facts, but go to the bottom of
the case and get the real story," ad-
monished Arthur W. Stace, managing
editor of the Grand Rapids Press,
speaking before the Students' Press
club last night at the Union on
"Troubles That Await the Cub." Mr.
Stace was followed by A. F. Harrison,
manager of the Chicago bureau of the
United Press, and V. V. McNitt, ex-'02,
of the Central New York News service,
both of whom presented various typic-
al problems of vital interest to journ-
Mr. Harrison told of the complex
workings and responsibilities of a
world wide new service and explained
some of the policies and principles of
the United Press.
Mr. McNitt the last speaker on the
program, told several humorous anec-
dotes of his early days as a reporter
and editor, relating the story of a
campaign against graft conducted by a
newspaper in a small Ohio town.
An informal discussion between the
speakers and the members of the
Press club followed the program.
The "trail blazers" of the Y. w. C. A.
gave their finance campaign a run-
ning start last night with a pledge of
$365.50. These so-called blazers are
the red, white, and blue teams anddthe
Y. W. C. A. cabinet who met at a din-
ner at Barbour gymnasium on the eve
of the gampaign to agitate for success.
The white team leads in the first
lap with a pledge of $166, the red team
follows a 'close second with $139, and
the blues offer $60.50.

Reduction of Naval Armaments Popu-
lar With Other Powers at
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Nov. 15.-The sweeping
American proposal for the reduction
of naval armament became the accept-
ed fundamental policy of the armament
conference today by the unanimous as-
sent of the five great powers.
Seconding the bold lead of the Un-
ited States, the accredited spokesmen
of Great Britain, Japan, Italy and
France rose In their places at to-
day's plenary session of the confer-
ence, and one after another declared
the readiness of their governments to
accept the American proposal in spir-
it and in principle, but with the reser-
vation of the right to suggest modi-
fication of deta~ils.
Then the problem of these details
which everyone realizes may occupy
the- prolonged attention of the confer-
ence and involve the success or failure
of the whole plan, was refered for
preliminary examination to a commit-
tee of five technical naval advisers,
one from each of the big five powrs.
While the technical advisers wrestle
with the armament problem and the
delegates themselves continue formal
conv'ersation of the American plan,
the other big subject of the conference,
the Far Eastern situation, will be giv-
en its first formal consideration at an
executive meeting tomorrow of the
delegation of all the nine interested

Necessity for Uniform Collection of
Fees Emphasized at
All classes of the University will ap-
pear at the Minnesota game wearing
their, class toques according to a vote
of the class officers at their meeting
with a committee of the Student coun-
cil last night at the Union. The meet-
ing was under the direction of Thorn-
ton W. Sargent, Jr., '22, and was ad-
dressed by Vernon F. Hillery, '23, and
John W. Ross, '23E.
The wearing of class toques is an
old Michigan tradition which has fall-
en into disuse the past few years. The
purpose of setting Saturday aside as
Toque day for the whole University
is made in an attempt to revive this
custom. Merchants of the city are
carrying a large stock of these toques
and .t reque 3t of the Student council
will refrain from selling them to any-
one bu~t students. It is expected that
after Saturday all classes will appear
on the campus with their class toques
at all times.
The question of class dues was also
discussed at this meeting with the re-
sult that Tuesday, Nov. 22, was set
aside as "Class Dues day." On this
day all classes will have booths estab-
lished in various places to be an-
nounced later and all class dues are
payable. In the past a great deal of
time has been wasted in the collection
of fees because of the haphazard man-
ner of collection while now all this
will be done away with. It is neces-
sary that dues be paid at this time in
order that bills now owed by the class-
es may be cleared 3p.
This meeting which was the first
of its kind ever held will pave the way
for a closer co-operation between the
classes and the Student council there-
by leading to a more efficient handl-
ing of school and University business.
This fact and the great need for organ-
ization was brought out by Hillery in
his talk.

An honor system code was adopte
at a meeting of the freshman clas
of the Medical school Monday afte
noon, subject to the approval of th
medical faculty at their Decembe
