Final plans and preparations for
the engineering society's smoker,
which wil be held at 7:30 tonight in
the assembly hall of the Union, were
made at a meeting of the society held
last night. Rear Admiral William A.
Moffett, chief of bureau of the United
States Navy aeronautics, and princi-
pal speaker of the evening, will ;ar-
rive sneAnn Arboratv5:40 this after-
oon. He will be entertained at a din-
ner party by Dean Cooley at which
time the heads of the various engi-
neering departments will be present.
The nature of Admiral Moffett's
talk is as yet unknown, but inthe
opinion of Dean Cooley, who is to in-
troduce thre speaker, it will be non-
technical and of such a nature as to-
"raise the students to a higher plane
of thinking and convince them of the
real service whcih can be rendered
in the field of engineering"
Rear Admiral Moffett has for some
time been prominent in naval aero-
nautics and served in the Spanish
American war, the Mexican war in
1914 and the Wotld War.
Due to the fact that the Navy Gen-
eral Board is making a study of he
relative importance of the submarine
surface ships and aircrafts in the
Navy it is thought that the Admiral's
time in Ann Arbor may be limited.
The Engineering society has pro-
vided a number of songs and dances
as a means of entertainment. All
members of the engineering faculty1
are invited to attend the smoker as
guests of the-eng "eriug society and
a section of the seatsi will be reserved'
for the Camp Davis men who will
lead in the singing of camp songs.
Dead Languages
Fail To Decline ,
In Pupils' Favor
Princeton, N. J., Sept 24.-Inquiry
into thte teaching of the Classics,
Latin and Greek, made by Dean An-
drew F. West, of the Princeton Grad-
uate school and president of the
A m e r i c a n Classical League, has
shown that approximately 940,000
pupils are now sudying Latin in the
secondary schools of the country. The
investigation also included the reason
for the study of these languages as
given by students themselves. Forty..
seven per cent of those continuing
Latin for a period of four years gave
entrance to college as the reason;
and the, same per cent said that "I
had found Latin helped in English."
Pupils were also asked to tender
reasons why their friends did not
continue with their study of the "dead
language." The biggest percentage,
55, stated that Latin was found to be
"too difficult." Other stated that it
took too much time, or that they con-
sidered it of no value.
In an investigation miade among
505 freshmen from college who were
continuing Latin for the fiftth year,
"I liked Latin" seemed to be the most
prominent reason for continuation of
the subject. Other reasons for con-
tinuing the study of Latin by the
freshmen were practically the same
as those given by the pupils of the
secondary schools.
College graduates were also ques-
tioned as to the values they believed
they had received. Out of 763 replies
ninety-three per cent stated that it
was the "value for the understand-
ing and use of English words derived
from Latin..
The questionnaire also asked "If

you had a son or daughter entering
high school next year, would you ad-
vise him or her to take up the study'
of Latin?" Eighty-three per cent of
the replies stated "yes," while quali-
fied "yes" was answered by three per
cent. Only seven per cent replied in
the negative and two per cent a
"qualified no," Five per cent gave no

terday afternoon in the chemistry
After discussing for a time the gen,
eral phenomena of chemical reaction
and the three stages involved, Pro-
fessor Baly described at length his
observatipns of the chemical reactions,
undergone in the process known as
"Photosynthesis," Professor Baly
said, "is the fundamental reaction of
life and involves the manufacturing
of sugar in the leaves of plants due
to the presence of chlorophyl (green
coloring matter) which unites with
the carbon dioxide in the air and takes
the required energy from the sun's
rays in the process.
"The by-product of this operation is
oxygen which is given off from the
leaves in a quantity equal to that of
the carbon dioxide taken in. Were it
not for this miniature food factory in

the possibility of manufacturing
synthetic sugar in sufficient quantitiep
[to market, basing his theory upon the
process in nature which he claims to
have dupicated. In place of the sun'b
rays he has used ultraviolet rays
in his' experiments by which he was
able to produce traces of formalde-
hyde, a substance found in the first
reaction of photosynthesis in diving'
plants. Professor Baly revealed in
support of his claim a portion of his
experiments. T4s was the second
time that this has been done', the first
being at the convention of the. Ameri-
can chemical society, held two weeks
ago at Cornell university.
Professor Baly is an authority in
his line, and his recent researches are
regarded as epoch-making. The lec-
ture, which was under the joint aus-
pices of the local section of the Amer-
ican chemical society, attracted some
300 persons interested in his work.



Represents Library Association
A Trip Through


Foreign librarians and booksellers
have had an opportunity during the
past summer to renew "acquaintance
with William W. Bishop, head of the
library of the University of Michigan
on his trip to Europe this summer.
For several years past, Mr. Bishop
has been carrying on negotiations
with these men. Much of his time in
Rome, Brussels, and Florence, was
spent in searching out the haunts of
his old acquaintances among the
bookish population. In the library of
the Vatican, Mr. Bishop did special
research work; and the library of St.
Marks in Venice also yielded valua-
ble information.
As a delegate from the American
library association, Mr. Bishop's dutya
was to invite librarians of other coun-
tries to the semi-centennial of the l
Association, to be held in Philadel-
phia in 1926. Severalavacancies in'
the University's library collection
have been filled by purchases which!
Mr. Bishop made abroad. After his1
return from Italy through Switzer-
land, Mr. Bishop delivered four lec-
tures before a libtary school in Paris.
At a meeting of the British library
association in Glasgow, he spoke on
the subject, "Large library buildings
in the United States."
During the final weeks of his trip
Mr. Bishop did research work in the
British museum, and other widely,
known British libraries. Acting as
one of a committee of six, appointed
by the American library association,
he made a fairly detailed study of the
relation between libraries and adult
education in England. Though the
primary purpose of his trip was re-
laxation, he feels that a great deal
has been accomplished. In spite of
fact that everything was done in a
comparatively leisurely manner, and
no inmmense or difficult commission
was fulfilled. Mrs. Bishop, and Wil-
liam Jr., accompanied him on the trip.
More than 30 students registered in
the wrong college during enrollment
last week, according to Dean W. A.
Humphreys. Most of the students in-
tended to enroll in the School of Bus-
iness Administration or in the School
of Education. Failure to follow the
directions of signs placed in the Uni-
versity buildings, and taking the ad-
vice of friends instead of officials,
seems to have been the cause for
such mistakes.
In such cases students are requir-
ed to obtain a withdrawal slip from
the College of Literature, Science,
and the Arts from Dean Humphrey's
office. This is redeemed at the sec-
retary's office for a slip which en-
titles the student to register in the
school desired after lie has paid any
difference in fees at the treasurer's
office. In sime cases students were
even classified. before the error on
registration was detected. In others
the registration officials were able to

Enthusiasm for Michigan Dean Is
High At Democratic State
Confidence in the belief that Dean
Mortimer E. Cooley of theengineering
school has a chance in the senatorial
election in Michigan this fall caused
considerable enthusiasm in the demo-
cratic conventions, throughout the
state last Tuesday night. I " the Wash-
tenaw convention here in Ann Arbot
Dean Cooley was formally offered as
the democratic candidate.
In .a recent interview the deat de-
clared himself in favor of a strict en-
forcement of the prohibition law, as-
serting that the nation cannot help
but prosper through such enforce-'
ment. As to the problem of campus
prohibition he believes that effective:
action toward the enforcement of the
law can come only from the students
"I have been a Democrat all my
life,' said Dean Cooley, who went on
to say that all candidates for office
must have a ship to sail in and must
be loyal to the flag floating above the
ship, but that no political aspirant
should sacrifice his independence to'
gain an office, "The Welfare of the
people and the good of the nation is
the main consideration," he said, and
announced his determination to work
for these ends.
The dean is now filling numerous
Speaking engagements, addressing a
combinedmeeting of the Kiwanis and
Rotary clubs of Saginaw and an as-
sembly in Jackson this week.
