Officials Anticipate Completloll
Pool Before Close Of
School Year


Bids for the completion of the
Union swimming pool are being re-
ceived by engineers in charge of the
project and will be acted upon by let-
ting contracts for the beginning of
work at a .meeetlng of the building
committee of the Union which will be
held in a short time. The meeting
will be held when all bids on the
pool are in the hands of the engineers.

the pool obtained in the recent drive
to get 2,000 students who would

been on hand for the pool project,

moneythat is procurable through

that will be obtained through the Fair

The work for which bids are being

similar operations. The locker rooms-

Character and Services of Man Will
Receive Mark of Appreciation
At Dinner
Dean Morticer E. Cooley of the Col-
leges of Engineering and Architecture'
will be honored at a banquet to be1
held at the Hotel Statler in Detroit
at 6:30 o'clock tonight, which more
than 5,000 people are expected to at-'
tend. The dinner is being given by
four engineering organizations in De-
troit, the Detroit Engineering society
the Detroit section of the American
Society of Civil engineers, the Detroit
section of the American Society of
Mechanical engineers and the Detroit
and Ann Aror sections of the Amer-
ican Society of Electrical engineers,
who are in this way endeavoring to
honor the character and services of
Dean Cooley.
The dinner has no connection with
the Dean's temporary retirement, ac-
cording to members of the committee
for the affair, but is an independent
effort to pay respect to a man who
has done much toward the advance-
ment of his profession and his coun-
try's affairs.
Edwin L. Denby, '96L, secretary of
the navy, President Marion L. Bur-
ton, Chase S. Osborn, ex-governor of
Michigan, and many other men prom-
inent in national and engineering cir-
cles will attend.
Frank E. Doremus, mayor of De-
.troit, will make the speech of wel-
come, followed by the introduction of
the toastmaster, Mr. Walter S. Rus-
sell of the American Society of Me-
chanical engineers. The following
toasts will then ben given in honor of
Dean Cooley: "At His Boyhood
Home," Judge Robert F. Thompson of
the New York Supreme Court: "As
Cadet and Ensign," Ira N. Hollis,
president of the Worcester polytech-
nic institute: "As Professor of Me-
chanical Engineering," Ernest B.
Perry, manager of industrial works
at Bay City; "In the Service of His
County," Mr. Denby; "On the Yose-
mite," Granger Whitney; "As Dean o
Engineering and Architecture," Pres-
ident Burton; "In the Engineering
Profession," F. Paul Anderson, dean
of engineering in the University o
Kentucky;' "In the Federated Ameri-
can Engineering Societies," Phillip M.
Moore, vice president of the Federat-
ed American Engineering societies;
and "As a Companion," Mr. Osborn.
Tickets for the banquet have been
sent out by the Detroit Engineering
society and the seating will be ar-
ranged by the numbers stamped on
the tickets which correspond to the
numbers on the seats.

In a series of emphatic resolutions
voicing disapproval of "the growing
tendency to transform the amateur col-
legiate contest into a pubic spec-
tacle", the Board of Regents at their
monthlysession last night wenthn
record as opposed to any of the vari-
ous plans recently proposed for en-
ormous expansion of the University's
football stadium at Ferry field. The
Regents' action was aimed specifical-
ly at the recent suggest.ion that the
University solicit a fund of $1,500,000
for such a purpose, the reason for the
opinion being "the othervery proper
demands that have been and may be
made upon our graduates and the con-
stituency of the University"
Would Finish Concrete Stadium
, Although discountenancing "the
present undue emphasis upon Inter-
collegiate athletics" the Regents rec-
ommended completion of the concrete.
stadium heretofore considered, which
will render available about 13,000 ad-
ditional seats at football games, mak-
ing the total possible attendance at
such contests, 50,000.
"Intercollegiate athletics should be
conducted primarily for the students
and alumni of the competing institu-
tions, for their friends and families,
and for the immediate constituencies
of the participating schools," reads
the statement. "Consideration must
be given to certain very practical as-
pects of the problem arising out of
the limitations of a small city such as
Ann Arbor. Spectators imst be' pr-
I vided with meals and housing facil-
ities. Special trains require railroad
yards which do not exist .and- could
only be provided with great difficulty.
The parking of automobiles is already
a perplexing problem."
Recommendations in behalf of the
establishment at Mihigan of a epar-'
ate school of business administration
were heard bytthe Regents who an
nounced that they wouldlookwith
favor upon any difinitely formulated
plan for the foundation of such a
school. Prof. Edmund E. Day of the
economics department appeared be-
fore the meeting and proposed the
organization of a five-year course
ending with the degree of master of
business administration, three years
of which would be occupied with work
In the literary college and the last
two in the newly-created school.
Deans Favor New Plan
Professor Day stated that his sug-
gestion had the sanction of the Deans'
conference and that it was in keeping
with the tendency of such schools as
the University of Pennsylvania and
Harvard university both of which re-
quire thorough preparation for busi-
ness administration study. Under the
arrangement advocated, Professor Day
would retain his position as chair-
man of the department of economics

be dean of the school of business
administration. It is expected: that
these recommendations will be defi-
iely formulated and passed upon fin-
ally at the December session of the
In regard to the question of the
use, of University buildings' for
speeches which arose in connection
with the barring of George W. Wick-
ersham from Hill auditorium on the
grounds that his address was "polit-
ical propaganda", the Regents adher-
ed to their policy of being guided by
the opinion of University officials.
President Marion L. Burton was au-
thorized to obtain from the deans of
(the various colleges their attitude to-
wards the framing of a set of regula-.
tions covering all such cases. The
Regents expressed confidence in the
judgment of the deans and signified
willingness to abide by their decision.
Plan B Abolished
The Regents voted to abolish Plan
B for admission of students to the
- literary college, this to take effect
- in March 1925 and therefore appiying
- to all persons who seek entrance af
ter that date. Plan B provides that
e persons seeking admission to the lit
r erary college, may enter conditioially
. without presenting one or more of thE
r prescribed units: English, foreig;
t language, algebra, geometry and lab-

a oratory science. Under the new rul-
e ing, unqualified compliance with these
s prescriptions will be necessary to gain
- entrance.
