RESOLUTIONS OFFERED
Resolutions requesting a decrease
in the fines for minor traffic offenses
and asking for the establishment of
a police traflic bureau where such of-
fenses would be tried instead of at the
police court, have been adopted by thei
Ann Arbor branch of the Detroit Au-
tomobile club and presented to the
Common council.
The resolutions state that the es-
tablishiment of a police traffic bureau,
such as are operating in Detroit and
elsewhere, would facilitate the work!
of the police and would also save the
lime of traffic violators, who would
ne'ed only to report to the bureau in-
:teald of, as at present, reporting to
i-e police department and also to the
justice of the peace court. Violators
of minor traffic regulations would also !

drrgoing arrest, the resolution states.
It was suggested that the fines for
minor traffic offenses, which include
driving and parking without proper
gh ts, disobeying parking rules, right-
of-way rules, and stop signs, and cut-
ung left-hand corners, should be asi
loliews: first offense, $1; second of-
louse, $3; third offense, $5, all to be,
haudledl by the proposed police traf-
lie bureau; and that in case of all of-
in:es ther-eafter the violator be ar-
rested and taken before the justice ofj
the peace for arraignment.

FACULTY TO ASSIST

Sensing a demand for a vocational
guidance council for University stu-
dents, the Student Christian associa-
tion, through Harold L. Williams, '26,
r is arranging such a service. Several
faculty men, professional men, busi-
ness men, and clergymen have been
organized into a council, for the pur-
pose of advising and helping students
who find themselves in the wrong
field, or discouraged with their work.
Through this council a student will
be able to talk with experienced men
in his own chosen vocation, here get-
ting any information in their own
particular field that they may want.
Interviews with these men will be ar-
ranged by Williams, who may be
found at Lane hall between the h3urs

First hand observations will be
made of the Detroit Art Institute, the
newly completed Bok-Cadillac hotel,
the Detroit Free Press building, and
several of the banks. At noon, the
group will join a body of alumni for
luncheon at the Board of Commerce
building.
Smoke To Your
Heart's Desire,
All Ye Puffers;
Inveterate smokers, puff to your
heart's content for it is extremely
doubtful if it will do you any harm. Al-
though it is claimed by many that the
continual use of tobacco is injurious
to the heart, this statement has never
been proven, according to Prof. Frank
N. Wilson of the medical school.
In answer to the athlete's con-
tention that smoking will shorten the
breath, Dr. Wilson says that this is
hard to proclaim a fact. Some who
do not smoke are those of neuratic
temperament who seem to have a low
olerance for nicotine, but anyone can
smoke who does not have an irrita-'
tion from it," said Dr. Wilson. "I do

Again in 1897 the grand old war-
ship seemed doomed. But popular de-
mand for the ship's preservation re-
sulted in the building of a roof over
the ship and other precautions.
Congress at the last session neg-
lected to appropriate the $400,000
needed to recondition the famous ,

reported by experts to be rotting
so rapidly that salvage by rebuilding
is considered problematical. However,
an attempt will be made to repair it if;
funds are set aside by congress in its
next session.
The frigate was launched Oct. 21,
1797. It was built to war against the
Barbary pirates and took a notable
part in the siege of Tripoli. But it
was in the war against Great Britain
in 1812 that "Old Ironsides" really
won the laurels which are recounted
in all the school histories.
