Doubtless taking advantage of the
new anti-violence regime put into ef-
feet by the Student council, a fresh-
man recently pulled one on an upper-
classman which will not soon be for-
gotten in the annals of yearling
achievements.
The Junior, using his seniority priv-
ilege, phoned the freshman that he
wanted his overcoat, and ordered him-
to bring it down to the show at once.
The yearling, whose evening was ru-
ined by the interruption, took the
overcoat down, but secreted an alarm
clock in the pocket, setting it to go
off at 9 o'clock.
As the upperclassman and his fair
Duicinea were guzzling their refresh-
ments a little later, the darn thing
went off. With the savoir faire which
has always distinguished upperclass-
men, however, this one remarked
coolly, "Never can remember to turn
that thing off."

partments, telling of the reluctance
with which the public greeted his in-
novations, and of their attempts to
cling to the old order of things. "If
you really wish to develop a respect
for human ingenuity and resource,"
he said, "just try to abolish a public
office once it is established. If there
is any institution which has more of
the power.of immortality than a public
office, I wish someone would tell me
what it is."
'Tells of New System
He then told (,f the working of the
reorganized administrative system,
pointing out the ways in wjilch it
could increase efficiency. In effect, he
said, the new departmental system
was modeled closely after great pri-
vate business enterprises, in which
the detailed administration of depart-
ments is left entirely in charge of the
heads of departments. This, he point-
ed out, was one of the greatest faults
in our present system of government.
Applies Big Business
The former governor then showed
how his "big business" system of ad-
ministration might be made to apply 1
to the federal government. The sub-
division of administrative powers as
outlined in his plan was absolutely
necessary to the efficient running of
our national government, he declared.
He showed how, at the present time,
an almost insurmountable quantity of
work is heaped upon the head of the
chief executive-work which could
just as well be performed by some
subordinate official. He told how,
during a time of national crisis,
President Wilson was forced to devote
from two to three hours daily to the
mere manual labor of signing his
name.
Such waste of time and vital ener-
gy, he pointed out, is not only unnec-
essary, but inexcusable, considering
the vast army of under officials who
might easily take over such tasks.!
The cabinet members, for instance,
have little or no actual administrative
power at the present time, he said.
Mr. Lowden closed with a plea for
mores sympathetic interest in matters
of government, declaring that no con-
sttructive changes in government are,
possible without the active support
of the people.

Dr. McMurry also spoke before an
assemblage of the School of Education
students in the afternoon, his topic
being the "Inductive and Deductive
Methods" of presentation in modern
schools. At present there is a strong
tendency to present everything to stu-
dens in a deductive fashion whereas
the ideal system would maintain that
the children be given a stock of ideas
and the working up to the big princi-
pIes would come inductively.
Professor McMurry will be the guest

POLICE ERECT

Complaints have been made by Den-
nis -Donovan, house manager of the
Union, that students have stolen two
of the thermostatic thermometers used
in the heating system of the building.
The thermomeers cost approximately
$32, and lack of knowledge of this fact~l
as well as thoughtlessness on the part
of students is thought to be the cause
of the thievery.
