and mentality.
The'subject of Dr. Koehler's themel
was "The Mentality of Apes." His
alk dealt largely with the memory,
earning powers, and imitation power
of apes in relation to those of man,
"Many people do not differentiate
between the apes and the common
monkeys" said Dr. Koehler "and con-
sequently they formed false concep-
tions of the mentality of apes. In
many respects the behavior and
mentality of the ape has many things
n common with man.
"It is noted that the chimpanzees
have protruding bones above the eyes
which are common to the native Afri-
cans, and the methods by which
chimpanzees procure their food are
similar to the means employed by
the lower-type natives. ' Often chimr
panzees walk on their hind legs in
an erect position similar to man.
Apes clearly show their facial ex-
pression, of disappointment, joy, and
surprise as does man.
The Professor explained that al-
though a chimpanzee is often inca-
pable of solving a problem or a
method of procedure he is, perhaps,I
the most highly developed anima) forI

Baseball Scores

Other games not scheduled.

Beginning a campaign which it is
hoped some day will realize a beauti-
ful campanile for the campus in
memory of the late President Marion
L. Burton, classes of all coeges of
the University now on the campus
have pledged their support towards
the purchase of a set of chimes to be
called the Burton Memorial Chimes,
which will be placed in the campaline
when a donor or donors for such a
tower are found. The chimes will be
the student's share of the memorial
to Dr. Burton and it is hoped that the
finest set of bells in the world may
be secured.
Dr. Burton's greatest desire for the
Michigan campus and one upon which
he had already done considerable
work before his life was cut short,
was the erection of a campanile. With
the initiative coming from th stud-
ents it is hoped that others will give
the campanile.
To start the memorial plan the re-
tiring Student council called a mee-
ing two weeks ago of all clss presi-
dents, who agreed to place the pro-
posal before their classes or appoint
memorial committees.
The plan provides that every class
now on the campus will make as its
memorial gift upon graduation a do-
nation of money to an accumulation
fund. The senior literary class whose
members will graduate next month
will establish the fund with the first
contribution. The other literary
classes have already appointed mem-
orial committees and will carry on
the plan while practically all of the
other classes have signified their in-
tention of joining in the purchase of
the chimes.
The Student council has estimated
that at the end of the next four
years more than $15,000 will have
been donated towards the fund
through class gifts. Contributions
are also probable from the J-Hop
surplus, the townspeople of Ann Ar-
bor, and alumni. The chimes may be
purchased bell by bell as the con-
tributions are received. Robert A.
Campbell treasurer of. the University
and mayor of Ann Arbor will take
charge of the fund. The treasurers
of the classes who are making gifts
and others outside the University de-
siring to give may turn their dona-
tions in to him. The cost of the
chimes will be definitely determined
by Earl V. Moore director of the
School of Music who is making a trip
to England this summer.
Plans for the campanile have not
as yet been made, but the chimes
will.be donated by the students with
the idea that the tower will be given
in some other way, such as an indi-
vidual donor, a group of donors, or
by the alumni in general. The Stud-
ent Council has already requested
Prof. Eliel Saarinen internationally
known Finnish architect, at present
connected with the architectural col-
lege, to draw his conception of the
campanile. Other architects will also
be asked to rubmit designs.
Voicingatheir sentiment of the pro-
posed' plan, the retiring Student
council which took' the initiative in
the memorial movement this year
said, "There is nothing we could give
that would be more fitting or more in
accordance with the spirit and high
aspirations of our beloved Dr. Bur-
ton than a set of chimes, the finest
and most beautiful in the world. Such
chimes placed in a fine campanile on
the campus was ever the ideal pf our
late president to be the finishing
touch to the new Michigan campus.
"The student body is taking the
initiative in financing the Burton
Memorial. The classes now on the
campus will turn their memorial
funds each year over to a common
fund from which the chimes, bell by'

bell, will bepurchased. Each donor
class will have its numerals engraved
on a bell. Offers of outside help
have already been accepted."
"We hope that someone will give
