SCORE 32 TO 13
Defeat Puts Varsity Out of Conference

Columbus, O., Feb. 16, (By A. P.)-
Ohio State in a Big Ten basketball
game here tonight obtained ample re-
venge for its earlier defeat by Michi-
gan, holding the Wolverines to three
baskets and the short end of a 32 to
13 score. Miner and Cunningham
starred for the Ohioans and the of-

and but one in the second. Michigan
never gave up trying but its efforts
were futile, Ohio taking the lead at
the start and never being seriously
threatened. Haggerty, Michigan cap-

victory kept Ohio State in the running1

"Diplomatic technique in the future
will consist of bringing nations to-
gether in conference around a table,"
declared Raymond Blaine' Fosdick,
eminent authority on international re-
lations, in a speech delivered in Na-
tural Science auditorium last night.
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, head of the po-
litical science department, introduced
the speaker.
In tracing the advances of society
during the past 100 years, Mr. Fos-
dick asserted that these developments
are directly responsible for the status
of present international relations. The
affairs of the world are linked to-
gether, stated the speaker, and this
interdependence warrants a medium
such as a council of nations where ex-
pression may be given, by way of con-
ference, to problems affecting the en-
tire universe. As a specific illustration

Every state of the middle west was

of the eleventh annual conference onI

Between 200 and 300 highway engin-
eers and road commissioners attendedj
the opening sessions of the assembly,
sponsored by the engineering college
in co-operation with the Michigan
State Highway department and the1

L. Burton, 'who due to illness, could
not as in past conferences, greet the
visiting engineers at the opening ses-
sion. Dean Cooley stressed the mutue-
al benefits arising from association
with the University of the professional'
groups in the state. Referring to one
of the questions facing the adminis-
trators of state highways, he indicated
the importance of immediate consider-
eration of the problem of financing,
brought about by the immense in-
crease in the scale of construction dur-i
ing recent years.
lion. Frank F. Rogers, State High-
way Commissioner of Michigan, speak-
ing immediately after Dean Cooley,
indicated that the' question of highway
financing would be umet by the new gasr
and weight- taxes. Ile revealed that
the situation is rapidly approaching
the point where the user of the high-
ways .must cointribute to the, cost of
construction and ,nmaintenance of statef
highuways. He continued with a sum-
marized report of the work of the
highway department during the past
three years. The commissioner said
that since the floating of the largef
bond issue in 1921, the state has. con-
structed a total of 3398 miles of im-
proved roads of all types, as well as
244 bridge structures over 30 feet
in length. During the 1924 season, he!
pointed out, more concrete pavements
were laid than in any previous year,
and that at present there is a paved
thoroughfare from Detroit to Clii-
cago without a significant break.

started in 1888, when he first took
up his duties as an instructor here.
Born in 1853 at Breslau, Germany,
he received his degree in civil en-
gineering at the Karlsruhe Polytech-
nikum in 1880, after which he was on
the United States Lake Survey for
two years. In 1882 he served with the
United States Coast and Geodetic Sur-

head of the mathematics department
since 1904.
He is well known throughout the
country as the most versatile and gen-
erally scholarly of American mathe-
maticians. He is well versed in-more
than eight modern languages and is
well read in most fields of classical
language and literature. Professor
Ziwet is the writer of a book on
"Theoretical Mechanics." He colla-
borated with Peter Field to write an

Hlours Credit Will Be Deducted For
Atsence; Dean Will Interview,
With the completion of the task of
grade card distribution, the Registrar's
office annouices that the warning,
probation, and home list shows an in-
crease over that of last semester, al-
though the gain has not been definite-
ly determined. In addition to this de-
linquent list, 189 students have been
sent attendance admonishments, 40 of
this number receiving a deduction of
one hour of credit for excessive ab-
sence. Approximately 35 students on
the delinquent scholarship list have
also received a one hour reduction in
credit for the same cause.
The basis for reducing credit on the
number of unexcused absences is as
follows: from 20 to 29, one hour re-
duction; from 30 to 104, one hour de-
duction and verbal warning; from 13

Up to a late hour no further
change was reported.
