Three members of the faculty were
honored by the French government
this summer with the decoration of
the French Legion of Honor. They,
were: Prof. W. H. Hobbs, head of
the geology department; Prof. H. P.
Thieme of the French department;
and Prof. F. G. Novy of the Medical
Professor Hobbs received his deco-

contributions to the world of science;

Thieme, who has been absent on
leave from the University during the
past year in France, found the notice
'of his decoration on his return to Ann
Arbor, together with a letter from
Ambassador Jusserand which particu-
larly commended his work in connec-
tion with the study of French litera-
ture. Professor Novy, considered the
most famous student of Louis Pasteur
received his decoration late in the
summer for research in bacteriology.

Steffansson is said to be an extremely
inhieresting and witty speaker. He is
also an author and a scientist. He
was one of the first men to emphasize
the importance of world air routes,
such as are now being mapped out.
Louis Kaufman Anspacher will be
the second speker on the program, ap-
pearing on, October 30. He will'
speak on "Drama as a Social Force in
a Democracy." He is well known as
a philosopher. dramatist, poet, and
orator, having been on the lecture
platform quite a number of years. Mr.
Anspacher is considered by many as
leading authority on the importance
of dramatist literature.

program will probably be Sen. Wil-

is well known to the American public
as a statesman and reformer, and his
ability as a speaker is known to all
who have followed the debates which
have taken place in the senate cham-

Glenn Frank, the brilliant young
editor of the Century Magazine, was
the speaker of the day, holding the
attention of the audience that filled
the stadium with a plea for a stal-
wart facing of the problems of the
day. A free university, a pacific
church, and a realistic state were the
ideals he emphasized.
"The success or failure of the
democratic experiment on this con-
tinent will ultimately be decided in
our schools," declared Dr. Frank.
"Magnificent housing and large at-
tendance at universities will not dic-
tate the right course for a democracy
or determine its actions. Univer-
sities that teach their students what
to think are a danger to democracy.
Universities that teach their students
how to think and then thrust them
out to decide what to think from
I year to year are democracy's one
indispensible safeguard."
American democracy needs mental
freedom more than it needs mental
furniture, was the opinion of the
speaker, who went on to compare the
teaching of the natural and the social
sciences. "Knowledge of the natural
sciences is today in the hands of a
society that lacks the intellectual in-
sight and moral power to use them
wisely," he declared.

Assodiation Secures Football Seats
For Many in Detroit, Toledo,
and Grand Rapids
In order that the work done by the
Athletic association could be lighten-
ed and so that alumni could get seats
together at the Michigan football
games this fall, a special ticket dis-
tribution bureau was maintained this
summer in Ann Arbor by T. Hawley
Tapping, field secretary of the Alumni
A total of $25,176.00 was handled
by the office, completely breaking all
expectations. The money for the
tickets and the applications were
all collected by the local secretaries
and sent to Mr. Tapping, who in turn
gave them to the Athletic association
on Sept 1, the first day of ticket sales.
The alumni seats were sold out at'
the end of three days for the Wis-
consin game and at the end of six
days for the Iowa game. Orders re-
ceived by the Athletic association on
Monday, Sept 1. were greater thap the
total orders received in the first 11
days before the Ohio game last year.
Ticket allotments this year were
16,000 for the alumni and 16,000 for
the student body for the Wisconsin
and Iowa games. Student applica-
tions have been pouring into the ath-
letic association office for these games
ever since the first day of registra-
tion. The Northwestern game tickets
are also going fast. Due to the
shortage of tickets only one extra,
.ticket will be given each student for
the Iowa and Wisconsin .games.
Among the Alumni clubs, the Uni-
versity of Michigan club of Detroit
took the most seats, $14,394 worth
of tickets for the six conference
games being handled through Mr.
Tapping's office. Grand Rapids was
next with $1,625 and Toledo third
with $1,419.
'Other Michigan cities who availed
themselves of this way to secure their
tickets were: Jackson, Lansing,
Midland, Battle Creek, Monroe, Alle-
gan, Sturgis, Alpena, Menominee,
Royal Oak, Muskegon, Petoskey, Dear-
born, Port Huron, and Three Rivers.
The out-of-state towns who gent in
applications were: Akron, Cleveland,
Dayton, Sandusky, Youngstown, and
Cincinnati, Ohio; Minneapolis, Minn.,
New York City, N.. Y.; and Kansas
City, Missouri.
Tickets were mailed to the individu-
al purchasers by the Athletic associa-
tion and not sent in groups. They
were filled, however, so that all the
alumni from one city could sit to-

Enrollment figures at the end. of
the third day of registration in the
University indicate an increase over
last year in every college. The ap-
proximate total of students enrolled
At the closing on Thursday night in
all schools was 5,200.
According to the Registrar's office
early indications do not mean that
there will be any great increase in
the total registration figures. Part of
the early gain is due to the registra-
tion of upperclassmen on Monday al-
though the registration'of all students
did .not begin until Tuesday. The
limiting of football tickets is another
cause for the early increase . in the
enrollment. Students are returning
earlier than usual in order to make
application for their reservations at
the games.
The greatest gain is noted in the
literary college which shows an in-
crease of 345 over the figures of last
year at this same time. The total at
the end of the third day of registra-
tion in this school was 3,418. Of this
number 2,158 were men as compared
to 1,990 men last year, and 1,260 wo-'
men as compared to 1,083, indicating
that the proportion of men and women
students is practically the same. It is
expected that by Monday night the
final enrollment figures will not show
much gain over the final count of
5,115 for last year n this college.
In the engineering college 898
students were enrolled as compared
to 749 at this same time last year. It
is expected that the total registration
in this school will be about average.
An increase of 93 students was not-
ed in the law schol to the present
time, the total enrollment being 216.
No figures are yet available from the
graduate school.
Enrollment in the medical school
showed an average registration of
'270 at the end of the third day. The
dental college had a total re'gistra-
tion of 175. An unusually large
freshman class is expected in this
school, the freshman enrollment
having reached the total of 85 on
Thursday night.
The pharmacy school had an en-
rollment of 43, a gain of 10 over the
figures of last year at this same time.
A gain of 62 is noted in the total
registration of 166 in the School of
More students than in any previous
year in the history of the University
have transferred from other colleges
and universities.
Official registration will continue
through today and Monday. All
freshmen are supposed to have regist-
ered by closing time tonight so that
all first year classes may be arranged
for the opening of school on Tuesday
morning. Upperclassmen. will be
allowed to register until 4 o'clock
Monday. Students who enter after
that time must pay a $5 delinquency
