Today will be the last time that
students can register for spring elec-
tions. Registration is necessary in
order to vote next Tuesday. More
than 1700 students filled out the reg-
istration cards yesterday at the cam-
pus booths. These have been filed
alphabetically and checked up with
the class lists. The ballots next
Tuesday will be compared with the
list of those registered so that no one
can hand in a vote for someone else.
The booths today will be at the
same places as yesterday and will be
open from 9 to 4 o'clock. It is not
necessary to have paid class dues in
order to register and vote. The com-
mittee expects that the registration
total today will reach the 3,000 mark.
Yesterday's turnout would have been
much larger but for the inclement
weather, council members declare,
and those student. who did not fill?

Women are urged to turnout for re-
gistration in larger numbers today.-
From their comparatively light regis-.

many of them do not realize that they
will be allowed to vote upon afl offi-#

Prof. J. L. Brume, head of the

ions" advised the high school editors
against considering their publications
fas professional activities, or as labor-
atories for their writing courses.
John A. Bacon, '24, editor of Chimes,
emphasized the fact that student pub-
lications must contain what the stu-
dents themselves are interested in, and I
inspire them to think upon those mat-
ters. Ie advised the school editors
to secure articles from University men
upon educational matters and from
business men, articles upon commer-I
cial affairs, in this way interesting
students in a high education as well
as matters of everyday life. l

Prot. R. K. Immel, of the public
speaking department, speaking at the

Inkwell," pointed out the necessity
of co-operation between the arts of
the platform and the arts of writing.
in the challenge with social, political,
and religious institutions of 'toda;y'
present to the world. "It is the duty1
of both to apply the searckhlight t
all institutions and point out their
defects; to act as public prophets and
custodians of those fundamental
ruths which have come down through
the ages and which we must preserve
for future generations.
Professor Brumm acted as toast-
raster. During the banquet Booth's
orchestra played several selections.
After the adjournment of the session, '
the delegates were shown through the'
Michigan Daily offices, where they
were given an an idea of the actual
processes necessary in publishing a1

and 1 o'clock today. They will be
divided between discussion groups
and talks by student publication men,
faculty men of the university, and
school advisers. The afternoon ses-
sion will be adjourned at 3 o'clock
