River Seine Wets Paris After

Paris, Jan. 2.-Paris and its sub-
urbs, recovering from the effects of
the New Year's frolic, awoke this
morning to realize that something ser-
ious was going on in the river Seine.
The heavy rainfall of the past fort-
night has swollen the river to such an
extent that this' morning the aspect
was one of seriousness. The officials
at the foreign office, arriving at their
desks today after the New Year's va-
cation, found that the water was seep-
ing into the basement of the building,
where important archives were stored. I
The fire department was immediately
called upon and brought pumps in the
hope of clearing the basement of water
and saving the valuable papers stored7
below. Fear was expressed that the
rise in the river might bring about1
such a situation as prevailed in 1910,

when the diplomatic staff of the for-
eign office had to go to their posts in
The suburbs immediately east and
west of Paris are largely under water.
They bear the aspects of a muddy
Venice; Boats have been brought into
use at Auteuil to move the inhabitants
from houses which have been sur-
rounded by water and to carry food
to people who have declined to move
The great truck garden area lying
along the river resembles a vast lake.
Only here and there is there any veg-
etation showing above the muddy wa-
ters. Army engineers are rushing foot

Senate Still Deadlocked Over
state Commerce


American Dialect Society Meets
Conjunction With Larger


Creation of a School of Business
Administration wth :Prof. Edmund
E. Day of the economtes department
as dean, was announced by the Board
of Regents at its meeting Dec. 22.
Professor Day came to the University
from Harvard last year as director
of the curricula in business adminis-
tration and the organization of the
new school was undertaken in accord-
ance with plans which he submitted
to the Regents at their November
The new school is the University's
response to the growing demand for
a course in business education which
will equip the granate with a more
comprehensive knowledge and a
broader vision than he obtains under
the present system. Harvard uni-
versity, Dartmouth College and the
University of Pennsylvania now have
schools of business administration
similar to Michigan's new one.
(Offer Five Year Course
The new department next fall will
affer a five-year course consisting of
three years of supervised work in
the literary college and two years of
highly specialized study in Dean
Day's school, the course ending with
the degree ofmaster of business ad-
cinistration. Under this plan, the
student will be under the control of
of the new school 'during , the
course, but will divide his time be-
tween cultural and professional work,
in conformity with the plan of busi-
ness training which is rapidly being
adopted throughout the country.-
About ten men will compose the fac-
ulty of the new department.
"Business long since has learned
how to profit from the application of
scientific methods to its engineering
problems; it is coming rapidly to ap-
preciate the possibility of a like ap--
plication of these methods to its man-
agement problems," declared Dean
Predicts Possibilities
"Sales promotion, permanent or
temporary financing, advertising cam-
paigns, labor incentives, these and
countless other phases of manage-
ment lend themselves to quantitative
analysis and more or less definite
measurement," he continued. "Busi-1
ness research has tremendous possi-
bilities which the next few years will
make increasingly evident.
Dean Day is desirous of correcting1
the common impression that the new1
department will turn out a two-year
product completely prepared for the 1
'practical" side of business. "We do
not plan to graduate expert techni-
clans, for other schools are prepared1
for that task. Ours is the task of
making business scientists and that
will require considerable time and en-
ergy. By requiring a three-year lit-1
erary course as a preparation for the
new course, we can rest assured that
the student has acquired a social at-
titude towards life that will equip
him to grasp the close connection be-i
tween the social and business worlds.";
Honor Retiring Regent
The Regents gave a dinner at the
Union in honor of retiring-Regenta
Frank B. Leland of Detroit who has.
served continously in this capacity
since 1908. Presdent Marion L. Bur-
ton addresed the guests and eulogiz-
ed Mr. Leland fqr his many and great1
services to the state and to the Uni-
versity. He state that during his in-
cumbency he has handled all of the
University's trust funds, investing
and reinvesting more than $50,000,
000, with rare good judgment. Mr.
Leland will be succeeded by Ralph
H. Stone of Detroit, president of the
Detroit Trust company who was elect-
ed last spring to the Board.
The Daughters of the American
Revolution informed the Regents that
they would establish a permanent
scholarship in memory of Michigan
soldiers who died during the World
war. The D. A. R. War Memorial
scholarship, as it will be known, will
consist of the income on a trust fund
of $5,000.
The Regents accepted a gift of
$500 from Mrs. Theodore Buhl of De-

troit for the maintenance of the Buhl
classical fellowships. A gift of $100
from Lawrence Buhl was also ac-
knowledged. Chinese students an-
nounced through the Board 'that they

Expert Will Conduct Comprehensive
Investigation of Engineering
As a first step in the comprehensive
investigation of engineering education
in the United States which is to be
undertaken under the auspices of the
Carnegie foundation and the National
Society for the Promotion of Engi-
neering Education, Mr. W. E. Wick-
'enden, who has been placed in charge
of the work, will arrive in Ann Arbor
tomorrow for a visit of inspection of
the University.
This visit will mark the initiation of
a complete survey of the engineering
schools of the country which is being
undertaken by the society, and for
which the Carnegie foundation re-
cently voted the sum of $108,000 be-
cause they consider it a "real contri-
bution to the field of educational re-
Michigan Chosen
Michigan has been chosen as the
first college to investigate because of
the work of the local committee which
was embodied in a report presented at
the Cornell meeting of the society last
At noon tomorrow Mr. Wickenden
will meet the deans of the University
at a luncheon at the Union which will
be given by Dean M. E. Cooley of the
engineering college. At 6:15 o'clock
he is to have dinner with the members
of the local committee. Saturday the
engineering faculty will have an op-
portunity to hear Mr. Wickenden pre-
sent his plans at a dinner at the
Important Step
Dean Cooley, who is a member of
the executive board of the Society for
the Promotion of Engineering Educa-
tion, believes Mr. Wickenden especial-
ly well-fitted as the executive to carry
on the work which is considered by
him "the most important step in the
history of engineering education" He
expresses the conviction that nothing
in the hitsory of American education
has been undertaken that is apt to in-
fluence so profoundly the development
of our colleges.
Mr. Wickenden has been for three
years the assistant vice-president of
the American Telephone and Tele-
graph Co. in charge of the recruiting
and development of the supervisory
and technical personnel. In this ca-
pacity he has introduced into the bus-
iness more than 2500 graduates of
American universities.
