_NATI0YAL EDUCATIONAL
BODY MEETS IN CHICAGO1
Chicago, Feb. 27.-(By A. P.)-The
students millenium-the day when
there will be no exams is coming on
apace, in view of educators.
Speaking before the annual conven-
tion of the department of superintend-
ents, national education association,
today ruled out the periodic examina-
tion "and all its moral hazards," as
unsound, unscientific and generally
meaningless. For the examination, it
seems, has been proven by years of
testing by educational psychologists
to have "absolutely no relation te
mental capacity or intellectual abil-
ity."
"The retentive capacity of the stu-
dent never is accurately indicated *by
the written examination," said Prof.
F. N. Freeman, of the University of
Chicago. "One student may stay u:
all night to fill his head with a jumble
of disassociated facts, without ever
understanding their meaning. In the
examination room the next day, he}
will record his vast knowledge with'
the same facility of the superior stu-
dent who has mastered his subject
The first type may forget. his facts
within a week, yet he is given the
same grade as his more intelligent
classmates."
A scheme for scientific measure-
ment of intelligence to replace the ex-
amination system was suggested.
BADGER OUTLINES PLANS
Of HEAT TRANER BODY.
Prof. W. L. Badger of the Chemical
Engineering department yesterday set
forth plans for the coming year of
the committee of eight experts on heat
transfer which was named at a recent
special meeting of the Engineering
section of the National Research coun-
cil in New York and of which he is a
member.
The worl, as outlined, will consist
of a survey of the field, the collection
of bibliography, and the laying of
plans for preliminary .experimental
work. The first meeting of the execu-
tive meeting will be held in New York

Ensian Pledges
Payable By Check
In order that everyone may be given
the opportunity to pay for their Mich-
iganensian before the time limit ex-
pires Saturday checks dated ahead tc
March 15 will be accepted, it was an-
nounced yesterday at the 'Ensian of-
fice. The checks must be received by
Saturday. Receipts will not be sent
out until the date of the check.
Those wishing to pay for the 'En-
sian at the office are asked to do so
immediately to avoid the last minute
rush. The office in the Press building
is open from 2 to 5 o'clock in the af-
ternoon.

'WESTINGHOUSE MANAGER
WILL SPEAK HERE TOAY

At the combined meeting of th Am-
erican Society of Mechanical Engin-
eers and the American Institute of El-
ectrical Engineers this afternoon at
4 o'clock in room 348 West Engineer-
ing building, Mr. Howell Van Blarcomn,
assistant manager of the power de-
partment of the Westinghouse Elec-
tric company will speak.
Mr. Van Blarcom has chosen as his
subject "Selecting a Vocation." and
his talky will have nothing to do with
attempting to attract men to any par-
ticular company after graduation. A11
interested are invited to attend.
More than 6,000tblueprints ave

MUSIC AND
MUSICIANS
Appearing in the eighth recital of
the Twilight organ series yesterday
afternoon in Hill auditorium, Palmer
Christian, University organist, pres-
ented a program containing several
pieces by newer composers, as well as
a number of well known compositions.
The audience was unreasonably luke
warm in its approval.
The most interesting number of the.
afternoon was time symphonic chorale
on "Jesu, meine Freude," by Sigfrid
Karg-Elert. This composition, divid-
ed into three movements, is built
around the traditional German choral
of the same name. Although the work
is resplendent in contrapuntal bril-
lance as well as forceful melodies, the
rendition accorded was of the highest
technical and interpretative skill.
"Kal Nidre," an arrangement of a
'traditional Hebrew melody for the or-
gan, by Bruch, displayed Mr. Christ-
ian's remarkable interpretative abil-
ity to a superb advantage. The path-
etic melodies were colored with poet-
is fervor, and executed with remark-
able gracefulness. This composition
is one of the most beautiful and im-
pressive numbers that has graced a
Twilight recital program this year.

COO1EY, ZIiWET DEFEND,
SALLDE 'CASE ACTION
(Continued from Page One)
As to my showing disrespect and in-
subordination, the Dean could know
only what Professor Ziwet had told
him as he had never met me unti
Monday of this week and at that time
he said to me, 'I am backing the
head3 of my departments, right or
wrong.' If attempts to keep a panI
down and to keep students out o his
classes, is loyalty, then Professor Zi-
wet has indeed been most loyal to me.
: Student Government Involved I
"The statments of Dean Cooley and
Professor Ziwet must not cause one
to lose sight of the fact that this mat-
ter arose because of the large enroll-j
ment in ny classes which surely
speaks for itself. Of course the ques-
tion of student government in general
and particularly the right of students
to have a voice in the selection of their
instructors, is involved."s
Students of the engineering college
have called what Will be known as an
"Indignation Meeting" at 7:30 o'clock
this evening at the Union for the pur-j
pose of a discussion of the Salladej
case and to decide what action, if any,
they will take.

"Dinosaurs, the Gigantic Reptiles
of the Mesozoic Period" is the subject
of an illustrated lecture to be deliver-
ed by Prof. Ermine C. Case of the
geology department at 8 o'clock to-
night in Natural Science auditorium.
The lecture is being given under the
joint auspices of Sigma Xi and the
Junior Research club, and is open to
the public.

Recent discoveries relative to din-
osaurs in the Gobi desert of southern
Thibet have raised considerable in-
terest among scientists. The location
is thought by some to be the place
or origin of the giant reptiles, and was
certainly a central breeding ground
for them. Professor Case is a prom-I
inent paleontologist, and has made an

extended study of the subject of his
lectue.
Lantern slides showing fossil re-
mains and reconstructions of the din-
osaurs will be used to illustrate the
talk.
