Reguirements for admission into
the Law school of the University were
radically increased when the Board of
Regents at their concluding session
yesterday morning voted to make a
three-year preparatory college course
beginning in the fall of 1926 a prere-
quitise for entrance. The Regents'
resolution provides further that grad-
uation from college will be required
of all who enter the Law school begin-
ning whith the academic year 1928.
This drastic revision of the regl-
ation governing admission, was made
in response to the unanimous request
of the Law school faculty and in con-
formity 'with the growing tendency to
an increasingly thorough preparation
for all professional work. In common
with most state universities, Michigan
now demands a two-year preliminary
literary course, but the Regents' de-
cree places Michigan on the same
footing with Harvard, Pennsylvania,
Columbia, Yale, Chicago and Leland
Stanford all of which institutions re-
quire three or four years of prepar-
tiosn. The entire movement has been
sponsored by the American Bar associ-
ation in an effort to elevate the stan-
dards of the legal profession.
Grant Trueblood LIeave
Prof. Thomas C. Trueblood of the
public speaking department was
granted a leave of absence beginning
Feb. 9 and extending to the end of
the spring recess in April. Capt.
George W. Dunn of the reserve offi-
ce®r'.training orps was appointed:
a ciate profesor of military science
and tactics. Mr. Frank J. Connors of
Buffalo, N. Y. was named instructor
In mechanics and drawing for the
isecrnid ideiestot and" Mr. Ilralhlt C.
Cutting was made an instructor in
chemical engineering.
The Regents gratefully acknowledg-
ed the gift, of an automobile from Mr.
anl Mrs. Howard Bloomer of De-
troit and a truck from the Graham
Truck Co. Both vehicles will be used
by the University Near East expedi-
!;on which will leave this country
some time this springunder the lead-
ership of Prof. Francis W. Kelsey of
the Latin department. Professor
Kelsey was granted a leave of ab-
sence for the second semester of the
current academic year and for the
entire year 1924-1925, in order that
he may pursue his researches.
Invite Physicist Here
Dr. Paschen, the famous physicist
of the University of Tubingen, Ger-
many, was invited by the Regents to
give a series of lectures here and al-
so to consult with the University
phybl;cs staff upon various research
The Regents gave approval to plans
which have been made to retain Elien
Saarinen, the distinguished Swedish
architect, for an additionaltseries of
lectures in the University. Final
plans for the honors convocation to
be held in May to lonor students who
have won intellectual distinction was
approved by the board.

Dean Raymond outlined the courses

too far with the work to warrant him
turning back. This plan calls for
three years of a regular arts course
including certain prescribed courses,
followed by three years of engineer -
ing. The student receives the degree
of Bachelor of Arts at the conclusion
of his first engineering year, and the
degree of Bachelor of Science at the
end of his third year of engineering.
Dean E. J. McCaustland of the Uni-
versity of Missouri told of the simi-
lar plan which is in force at that1
school, the only difference being that
the arts course is limited to two years'
instead of three.
In the absence of President A. C.
Humphreys of Stevens Institute, the
presiding officer read a letter from
him which advocated the single en-
gineering course, and opposed the five
year curriculum as being inclined
toward over development of the -the-
oretical side of the study.
Following the meeting, and a din-

Yesterday morning from 9 to 10:30
o'clock members of the committee
met with representatives of the Deans

in the same form of endeavor attend-

discussion of subjects of mutual con-

both committees.
Committee Convenes
At 10:30 o'clock the railroad com-
mittee convened for its final meeting.'
A general resume of the topics
brought up for discussion at the meet-
ings Thursday, consumed a majority
of the time up until 12:15. The prob-
lems discussed included the matter
of stimulating a greater interest on
the part of railroads in assisting the
universities to develop the best possi-
ble methods for technical courses.
This subject was introduced by Mr.
W. B. Storey, president of the Atkin-
son, Topeka and Santa Fe railway. A
second topic which was brought to a
head was one introduced by Mr. H.

sponsored, was again discussed and
an attempt to outline the best mode
of procedure was made.

into summarized form. Plans for fu-
ture work of the committee and the
drawing up of a report for the Amer-
ican Engineering Association com-
prised the remainder of the business.
Representatives from the National
Industrial conference board and from
the American Society of Mechanical
engineers sat in at the morning meet-
ing yesterday. Mr. W. E. Wickenden
was also present and heard the sum-
marizing of the topics.
When asked concerning the success
of the conference, Prof. Riggs stated,
"Unquestionably, both elements com-
posing the committee benefited. B

clearer idea of the problems and
needs of each faction was obtained.
Although no definite policies were ad-

Albert Bacon Fall1
Albert Fall is in Washington today.-
He has been subpoenaed to appear be-

Thursday by E L. Doheny, California
oil magnate, that he had loaned the
former interior secretary $100,000 in;
cash, which remains unpaid.

Accompanied by 25.6
Degrees Drop
Three and one-half inches of snow,
borne on a 27 mile west wind, to-
gether with a mercury drop of 25.61
degrees for the period between 'the
hours of seven and seven yesterday,
announced the arrival of the third
trans-continental cold wave now sev-
eral days overdue in Ann Arbor. The1
snowfall was the heaviest of the cur-i
rent winter. According to the rec-
ords, there should at present be five£
and one-half inches of snow on the1
ground, two inches having laid on the '
ground for some days.
The consistent and rapid descent of
the mercury yesterday causes obser-
vatory officials to believe that the1
local temperature will decline to zero
and possibly lower.
