Judge Ben B. Lindsey, of Denver,
noted lecturer and authority on juv-
enile delinquency will present the
sixth number of the Oratorical lec-
ture series 'vhen he speaks at 8
o'clock tomorrow night in Hill aud-
itorium on "Experience with Kids."
This is Judge Lindsey's second ap-+
pearance in Ann Arbor recently as he
spoke on the Oratorical course two
years ago. At that time he was said
to have been the most popular speak-
er on the program. It is through
humor that Judge Lindsey makes his
points ,explaining chiefly by stories
taken from his own experience in the
juvenile court of Denver.
Authority On Child's Problems
Fame of Judge Lindsey has chiefly
come through his work with this
court, as he has been judge there.
{ since 1901. He is the originator off
of many of the features of the present
juvenile court system, and almost all
that have been founded ow( their in-j
spiration to him. European nations
have sent delegations to see his court
at Denver in action.
Judge Lindsey was born in Jackson,
Tenn., in 1869, later going to Colo-
rado. Since 1901 he has spent much
time lecturing throughout the country
on children's problems. He recent-
ly spoke in Detroit. In addition he
has written many books upon the juv-
enile deliquency question.
The Colorado Juvenile court law'
was first drawn up by Judge Lindsey.
This provides that boys should be put
on their honor, and out of several
hundred sentenced to an industrial
school where they go unattended only-+
five have broken their trust. Judge
Lindsey also was instrumental in hav-
ing the first contributory delinquency,
law against adults passed in his state.

The Week's News
In Brief
The fol'owing column is a sur-
vey of news of the world during
the past week, compiled from the
press. An attempt has been made,
to present the news as brifly and
concisely as possible.
The administration closed its deal
with the Obregon government to sell'
$1,000,000 worth of arms, amunition.
and aeroplanes. The negotiations
were rushed through in order to block
the opposition of congress which had
displayed little enthusiasm over the
plan. Both 'houses had planned in-
vestigations of the affair. The sale!
was made in order to foster "stabil- 1
ity and orderly constitutional pro-
cedure" in Mexican politics.
y v,*
It was also disclosed that the gov.
ernment has sold $100,000 worth o
arms to the Cuban government dur-
ing the last three months.

Associated Press dispatches today
from Washington quoting officials as
saying there was no provision of law
against arms purchasesunless there
'is evidence of a conspiracy to use
IAmerican soil as a base for opera-
tions of foreign powers resulted in
instructions from Aeolfy de la Huer-
ta, Mexican Revolution Leader, to his
agents here to immediately purchase
a large quantity of war munitions
says the Daily States.
The subsistence of the dispatch was
cabled to Vera Cruz by Peodoro Frz-
ieres, revolutionary government agent
here, and de la Huerta replied imme-
diately with instructions to purchase
three million rounds of rifle ammu-
nition, 5,000 rifles, 10 machine guns;
and 1 million rounds of machine gun
ammunition. At the same time, de-
clared the newspaper, funds to cov-
er the purchase were cabled to a
New Orleans bank.
Washington, Jan. 5.--The Mexican
embassy declared in a statement to-'
day that the federal troops were pre-
pared to go into decisive action against'
the rebels on both the Vera Cruz and
Jalisco fronts. Referring to recent
victories scored by the Obregon forces,
the statement said:
"General Carazeo, commander of
federal troops in the state of Guerrero
has sent to the war department a de-
tailed #report of the victory scored by'
his troops at Zacoalpan, over forces
operating under General Figueroa.
The losses , sustained by the rebels
were heavy both in casualities and in
the number of prisoners taken.

Adressing members of the engineer-

den, head of the national investigation
of engineering education which is he-
ing conducted by the Carnegie found-
ation and the society for the promo-
tion of engineering education outlin-
ed the need for a broader education
of men engaged in engineering work.
"An engineer cannot take. his place
in society if he concerns' himselfl
solely with matter and energy," the
speaker said. "A graduate will have
to be a leader of men if he is to take
the position of mastery due him."
There is a lamentable lack of en-,
gineers in high executive positionst
and as le'Lers in public administr-
ation according to the speaker.;
"Engineering education in the fut-:
ure will be conditioned by a consid-
erable number of factors" said Mr.
Wickenden. Prominent among them
he mentioned the qualification of the
student himself.{
