Report Increase of More Than 50 Per
Cent; Claim Growth Due to
New Policy
A gain of 124 in the enrollment of
the Graduate school, an increase of
more than 50 per cent, has been re-
ported. This growth is attributed to
the new policy of the school concern-
ing fellbwships and scholarships,
which allows regularly enrolled in-
structors of the Graduate school, to-
gether with fellows and sdholars, ex-
emption from the payment of the usual
annual fees. Matriculation and other
minor fees are expected. "This puts
Michigan on a level with other univer-
sities where it has been the policy to
allow graduates exemption from an-
nual dues," was the statement of Dean
Alfred H. Lloyd of the Graduate school.
Fellowships are now distinct from
scholarships, since'they carry a larger
stipend and are held only by students
of more experience, ability, and inde-
pendence in graduate study and re-
search. The practical result is fewer
fellowships of more value, so that ap-
pointment to a fellowship is of more
importance than was the case before.

Speakers at the meeting have been
secured to address the prospective

(By Associated Press)
Washington, Oct. 4. - Three addi-
tional nations, Belgium, Holland and
Portugal, were invited by the inited
States government today to partfci-
pate in the discussion of Pacific and
far eastern questions in connection
With the disarmament conference. Al-
most' coincidentally, it was 'made
known by high administration ofi-
cials that the United States does not
anticipate consideration of inter-al-
lied debts ,at the conference..
The formal invitation to the three
additional nations were forwarded
late in. the day to the .respective
capitals and were extended after
correspondence between Secretary
Hughes, acting for President Harding,
and the four principal powers orig-
inally invited to send representatives
to the conference. The important in-
terests of each of the three nations in.
the far east led to the extension of the
China was invited to participate in
the Pacific and far eastern discussion
when the first invitations were issued,
and acceptance by Belgium, Holland,
and Portugal, which is regarded here
as assured, will mean that nine na-
tions will sit together when such dis-
cussions are entered. The question of
disarmament limitations, however, will
be discussed only by the five, major




p Jtanager Government Plan Gains
worA mong Nation's Municipalities/

With ever increasing financial bur-
dens being constantly:thrust upon the
municipal taxpayer, the city, manager
plan of government is becoming more.
and more an important phase in the
political life of the country. A direct
offspring of Athe Galveston plan of
commission government, the city man-
ager plan had its genesis in the town
of Sumpter, South Carolina, in 1912,
but- since that time more than 200
cities in the United States including
30 Michigan towns and cities have
adopted it and are successfully con-.
ducting their legislative and executive
function with a minimum of expense
and a ma imum of efficiency.
Successful at Griand Rapids
The first Michigan city to adopt this
form of centralized administrative
control was Grand Rapids, and so suc-
cessful was the venture that they have
not deviated from their first course.
Grand Rapids was closely followed by
Kalamazoo, and this city, too, has been
completely satisfied with the results,
so it is not surprising to note that.
Muskegon, Pontiac, Escanaba, Stur-
gis, and Three Rivers have come over
to the new idea and are firm advocates
of the city manager idea.
Under the city manager plan, the
commission still remains but its func-
tions are purely of a legislative and
representative character. The com-
mission is elected by the people, and it
in turn appoints the city manager.
The manager then is directly respon-
sible to the commission and failure to
execute their policies is sufficient
cause to warrant his removal. The
manager thus becomes responsible for
the affairs of the city and he has also
the power of appointing the subor-

result this centralization of authori-
ty and responsibility is bound to cre-
ate a more efficient form of govern-
ment, and at the same time there is
not much possibility of a "one-man
rule" or the -control of the city by
political rings, ward healers, or small
Natural College Course
Therefore when one considers the
vast amount of attention that' is be-
ing given to clearing up the shady,
side of politics by the introduction of
more efficient as well as representa-
tive methods, it is not surprising to
learn that our colleges and universi-
ties are including in their curricula
courses that will fit men to accept
city managerpositions. A city man-
ager must know something of law,
medicine, and engineering, to say
nothing of his knowledge of the more
general subjects which are offered in
the College of Literature, Science, and
the Arts.
20 Students Enrolled Here
Here at the University of Michigan
.especial attention is given to stu-
dents desirous of pursuing their life
work in that field and more than 20
students have signified their inten-
tion of adopting that work. The nun-
ber is larger this year than ever be-
fore, yet special courses have been
offered in that field since 1917. At
that time the outbreak of the war
compelled the men who were s ecializ-
ing along that line to stop school and
of the four men enrolled in the de-
,partment, but one returned to receive
his degree in municipal administra-
tion. But now that the more general
trend of city government is toward the
city manager plan it is expected that.

Nationwide co-operation of all the
engineering societies in furthering the
solution of national problems is the
purpose of the Federated American
Engineering societies, explained Deanj
Mortimer E. Cooley, of the College of
Engineering and Architecture, in an
interview yesterday afternoon. Last
Friday night Dean Cooley was unan-
imously elected to the presidency of
the federation, which is held to be the
greatest honor for an engineer in
Members of the Federated Ameri-
can Engineering societies are the va-
rious national andlocal organizations
of engineers. Each member society
sends a number of delegates propor-
tional to .its size to a central coun-
cil, which meets at stated times in
Washington, D. C. The council elects
an executive committee and the pres-
ident, who together transact all the
affairs of the orga ization.
In its year and a half of active life,
the federation has been instrumen-
tal in :initiating the bill now before
congress for the reorganization of the
departments of the cabinet, and has
been the motive power, under Her-
bert Hoover, of the nation-wide cam-
paign against public waste. Dean
Cooley indicates that its future work
might concern such subjects as re-
forestation or the development of a
uniform code of engineering ethics.

of 10 lectures in room C of the Law

expert in his field." The purpose of his
lectures is to advise the public what

ments offered, in order to avoid un-
necessWzy losses.

Engineers Favor
Broader Outlook
Wider knowledge of the social and'
economical affairs of life were advo-
cated as the means of raising the en-
gineer to the high standard of other
professional men by Prof. John C.
Parker, of the electrical engineering
department,' last evening . when he
spoke before the members of the As-
sociated American Engineers at their
first monthly meeting at the Michigan
"The engineer has become too narl
row in his technical knowledge and
his relation to society," he said, "and
by segregating himself has failed 4to
foster that professional consciousness
that is needed ,to impress the world
with the importance of the engineer's
The meeting commended the action
of the Federated American Engineer-
ing soqjeties in choosing Dean Mor-
timer E. Cooley, of the College of En-
gineering, as its new president, and
voted' congratulations to the dean on
his election.
Feeling that the engineer has notr
received proper recognition for his
contribution to society financially or
professionally was expressed by Prof.
Henry E. Riggs, Prof. Emil Lrch,,
and Prof. John E. Emswiler.
"Professional consciousness among
engineers must be the ambition of us
all," Professor Lorch said. "To ac-
complish it we must become social,
beings, learn to live among our fel-,
lows and exhibit an interest in the
world's great affairs.' The next move
we take must purge our ranks of non-
