for the Michigan Land will be carried

felt that if the band were given this

"I am convinced that this will not
be the case, for the band is the one
organization which reaches every stu-

dent, its cost should be distributed
equally among the students. In ef-
fect this is what is done now; and,
except for being surer, the results
will be the same under the new plan.
Instead of paying at the bounces and
on the campus when begged for sup-
port, the student would contribute
his share at the start of the year,
when he has plenty of money. So
while not really making the costs any
greater to the student, this plan would
save annoyance to him as well as to
the band itself.
"There is no other organization on
the campus which plays a part even
similar to that of the band; the band
is a thing of the students, it is a part
of the University along with the Union
and the Athletic association. Other
organizations could not make such
claims for support; they play a more
distant part. The only question seems
to be: do the students want this new
plan? I believe that they do," said
Mr. Campbell.

The Geneva conference will be held

ambridge Professor Stresses Human
Brotherhood as Solution of
Peace Problem
Stressing the fact that human
rotherhood and enlightenment were
he only true solvents of the world
eace problem, Prof. J. Holland Rose
f the history department of Cam-
ridge university traced the develop-
ment of the attitude toward such
roblems, from the Roman empire to
he present time, in his lecture on
Pax Romana and Pax Napoleonica,"
elivered yesterday in Natural Science
auditorium. '
"Scholars have 'declared the age of
he PaxRomana,' whereby peace was
ecured through Roman control, the
greatest era for humanity that the
world has ever seen," Professor Rose
declared. "One city made it possible
or the traveler to go from the Gram-
pian hills of Scotland, uninterrupted,
o the Euphrates. Roman law held
sway, and for 250 years peace reigned.
Order was evolved 'out of the chaos
that had prevailed.
"Thus it was that the fall of the
Roman empire was looked upon by
thinkers of the day as the end of all
things, and the beginning of chaos.
From that time on writers held to the
belief in the 'Ppx Romana,' thinking
that peace could come about only
through the control of some one
strong central power. Dante and other
writers of the Middle Ages looked
back to the Roman empire as the
model for future peace.
"It was the claim of Napoleon that
his Pax Napolenica' would be a suc-
cessor of the old Roman peace. Order
would be secured in Europe through
the supremacy of France. But a study
of his letters would seem to show
that he was not sincere-that his
claim was evolved after his deeat.
"Again, many Germans held a sim-
ilar idea, believing their country pre-
destined to give peace to Europe and
a distracted world. But in both cases
Europe was already too nationalized.
People would not submit to control
by another nation. And so the scheme
"Perhaps Europe is now altogether
too nationalized to insure peace,'
Professor Rose concluded. "But it is
a formation that must be gone
through, and its defects will be mor
clearly shown after we have come t
a better stage."
14,000 Women Are
Phi Beta Kappas
According to the Bing-tum-phi, stu
dent publication of Washington an
Lee university, one-third of the livin
members of the Phi Beta Kappa so
ciety are women. Since its organiza
tion, in 1776, the society has grow
until it now includes ninety-nin
chapters. Of the 57,000 persons whl
have been selected to membership
42,000' are now living.

Michigan Alpha chapter of Phi Beta
Kappa, national honorary sciolastic
fraternity, elected to membership, at
its annual meeting yesterday, 65 sen-
iors in the literary college and com-
bined courses, 17 juniors in the liter-
ary college, three education students,
and four alumni.
This is the first year that juniors
have ever been elected to member-
ship, the by-laws having been chang-
ed to include the admittance of the
outstanding scholars in that class.
The election of juniors will mean a
corresponding decrease in the num-
ber of seniors to be elected in the
With the admittance of juniors, it
was found necessary to define the
qualifications of the two classes.
Seniors were defined as those stu-
dents having been on the campus for
three or more semesters, and having
earned more than 95 hours. This was
formerly 105 hours. Students having
between 75 and 95 hours, and having
been on the campus three or more
semesters, were classified as juniors.
This classification differs materially
from that of the registrar's office.
Name Officers
The four alumni elected were en-
roiled in the University before the
present system of giving grades went
'into effect in 1905. Before that time,
courses were either passed or flunked,
and elections to Phi Beta Kappa were
made solely on the recommendations
of faculty members. As a result,
many men who merited this honor
were overlooked.
Officers of the fraternity were elect-
ed for next year. They are Prof. F.
N. Scott of the rhetoric department,
president Prof. H. L. Caverly of the
economics department, secretary and
the Latin department, a member of
I the 'executive committee for a term.
of three years. The other two mem-
bers of this committee are Professors
U. B. Phillips of the history depart-
ment and R. H. Curtiss of the astron-
omy department.
,The annual initiation and banquet
will be held Friday, May 8, in the
Union. Prof. E. E. Carritt of the phil-
osophy department has been chosen
as the speaker of honor. His subject
has not been announced.
