First School of Rind in Country;
Classes Will Begin
Next Fall
A Michigan School of Religion,
which for more than 20 years has
been an air castle, is about to be-
come a reality, according to a state-
ment made by Prof. L. A. Hopkins of
the engineering college last night.
This was made possible by the es-
tablishment of a three year endow-
ment of $25,000 per year to finance
the institution through its experimen-
tal stage.
Dean A. H. Lloyd of the graduate
school has been named acting dean
of the new institution. The faculty
will be composed of faculty men from
universities throughout the country,
who will come on a leave of absence
basis. This is done because the new
school is the first of its kind in the
country, which necessitates a long
period of experimentation. r
Professor Hopkins, and Prof. Le-
Roy A. Waterman of the semitics de-
partment are arranging the faculty
The idea of the school of religion
was first propounded by Prof. R. M.
Wenley more than 20 years ago, and
since that time there has been no
single year when there was not an
interested group among the faculty.
Actual procedure started when Prof.
C. F. Kent of Yale university, during
his visit here last year, set up the
original organization.
At this time a finance committee,
made up of several business men, was
appointed to secure financial back-
ing for the proposed school. This
board consists of Lyman Goodenough
of Detroit, president; Frederick W.
Stevens of Grand Rapids, vice presi-
dent; Stanley g. Stevens, Ann Arbor,
secretary; and Kirby W. White. De-
trQit, treasurer; and six others.
The advisory council, , correspond
ing to the Regents, includes Prof.
Campbell Bonner, Prof. George F.
Meyers, Prof. Henry Sanders, Prof. I
R. M. .Wneley, Prof. J. F. Shepard,
Prof. H. L. Wilgus, and Prof. A. .
Wood, all of the University faculty.
The purpose of the School of Re-
ligion is to offer courses in religion
which will complement and augment
the work already offered by the Uni-
versity. Like the School of Music. it
will not be an integral part of the
University, but credits between the
instiutions will be exchangeable.
Classes will begin next fall, al-
though during the current school
year a number of special courses will
be offered, announcements of which
will be made shortly.
Trout To Conduct,
Business Courses
Announcement has been made of
the appointment of Prof. A. L. Trout,
of the engineering school, as part-
time associate professor in the School
of Business Administration. Profes-
sor Trout will continue his associa-
tion with the engineering school
throughout the year but at the same
time will 'conduct classes and have
charge of, the program and realty
management in the School of Busi-
ness Administration.

Conference Rule Prohibits

More Than Teae

Secured Passage of Education Act of
1918; in British Service
Since 1912
Right Honorable Herbert A. L.
Fisher will deliver a University lec-
ture at 4:15 o'clock today in the audi-
torium of .the Natural Science 'build-
ing on "Leaders of English Liberal-
ism, Gladstone, Morley, Bryce, As-
quith, and Lloyd George." The speak-
er is a recognized leader in educa-
tional reform in England.
While president of the board of edu-
cation, under the Lloyd George minis-
try, Mr. Fisher succeeded in securing
the passage of the education act of
11918, which completely changed the'
English educational system.
Mr. Fisher also served as a mem-
ber of the Royal Commission on Pub-
lic Services of India in 1912. During
the World War he served on the gov-
ernment committee on German out-
rages. He is a graduate of Winches-
ter and New College, Oxford.
While serving as a tutor and later
as a Fellow in New College he estab-
lished a reputation as an historian,
making a special study of the effect
of French Revolutionary ideas in Eu-
rope. At the time of his entrance into
Parliament in 1916, Mr. Fisher was
serving as academic head of the' Uni-
versity of Sheffield.
Washington, Nov. 13.-President
Coolidge declared in an address to-
night before the annual meeting of
the association of land grant colleges
that the government would omit no
efforts to prevent a repetition of re-
cent misfortunes involving agriculture,
but asserted that the farmer must
also re-adjust his methods of produc-
tion and marketing, "until he comes
within sight of the new day."
It was the first public address Mr.
Coolidge had made since the election,
and was devoted to a discussion of ag-
riculture, which is the principal sub-
ject before the college representaIves.
The president expects to outline his
views of farming conditions more ex-
tensively next Monday in opening the
conference of the agriculture commis-
sion, which he recently appointed to
formulate recommendations for the
permanent stabilization of the in-
"The immediate problem," the presi-
dent said in his address tonight, "is
to bridge over the difficulties result-
ing from abnormal and war stimulated
surpluses." He added that preparations
must be made also for the fast ap-
I proaching time when "we are likely
to be one of the greatest of the agri-
cultural buying nations."

Post Office Wrecked Yesterday Takes
Toll of Three Lives;
13 Injured
Grand Rapids, Nov. 13. (By A. P.)-
Federal agents investigating the pos-
sibility that a bomb wrecked the Grand
Rapids main post office late yesterday
afternoon, taking a toll of three lives
and injuring 13 persons, announced
tonight that.they had in their posses-
sion a threatening letter that might
lead to some tangiable clue to thel
method used and to the parties impli-
cated if a bomb was used.
The letter was found by Ensign
Harold McDonald of the United States
Naval reserves force in his automobile
a short time before the explosion. Al-
though for the most part the words of
the letter are blurred and almost
illegable, the words, "disaster," and
"death" are quiet clear. A man's pic-
ture accompanied the note and fed-
eral agents are now scouring the city
in an attempt to place the man ,under
At noon today a man's leg bone
was removed from the wreckage, Coro-
ner Simeon D. LeRoy, after making
an investigation of the bone said that
it was a portion of a male leg bone'
below the knee and above the ankle.
Another checkup of missing persons in1
the city has failed to give aiy clue.
It is thought that perhaps someone
might have been blown to pieces,
Although federal agents investiga-
ting the explosion are positive the
disaster was caused by a bomb, of-
ficials of the local gas company were
at the scene of the explosion all day
in an effort to determine whether or
not gas might have been the cause.
After exhausting all tests they an-
nounced early this evening that they
did not believe it possible that gas
caused the explosion.
Dos. Annatyn, a post office employe,
is still in a critical condition and
may die, hospital authorities said early
this evening. The other twelve who
were injured by the blast are ex-
pected to recover.

The Student council has sought
forestall as long as possible the rai
ing of funds by such means but st
dent subscriptions must serve as th
last resort if Michigan is to be re

A petition drafted by the Stude
council asking for a permanent ban
appropriation was rejected by th
Board of Regents this fall. The At

the band financially because of

Alfred B. Connable, president of th
council, in commenting on the situ

than 15,000 people will represent Mic
igan tomorrow at the Ohio State ,st
dium. It is the duty of every Michiga
student to make some small sacrifi
to support the Varsity band whic
in the opinion of coaches and playe
has a decided effect in strengthenin
the moral of the team.
"The Student council has endea
ored to make unnecessary the inco
