Urged Revision of Examination
System To Benefit Students,"
Frost Says
Because he was a friend of Presi-
dent Burton, arid because they were
both friends of the University, Robert
Frost spoke last night in Hill auditor-
iuum at the Marion Leroy Burton Me-
morial convocation. And because Mr.
Frost was a friend of President Bur-
ton, his address last night was notS
so much 9 formal commemmorationl
as it was an intimate, personal rec-
"Let it be as if we sat down to-
gether to exchange recollections of a
friend in words like 'Remember how
tall he was," said Mr. Frost, and
then made it like that.
He spoke of Mr. Burton's ability as,
an administrator, of the boyishi, laugh-
ing way in which he went at obsta-
cles and overcame them; and of the
matter-of-fact way in which he dis-
missed doubts and queries. "Ile ac-
cepted it as a task to go ahead with,
rather than as a question."
Mr. Frost told of a conversation he
had had with the President which
had changed his idea of him. "I had!
always thought of him as an admin-j
istrator," he said, "but I found out
that administration was never enough
to satisfy the idealism of his nature.
He brushed it aside in his mind for
something beyond, which, as I camel
to see, was no less than the advance-

Year's Ten Accomplishments
Are Told In Council Report

Reviewing the definite accomplish-
ments of the last two semesters, a re-
port of the Student council for the
year 1924-25 was submitted to the new
council at the weekly meeting last
week in the Union. in this report the
ten. major acts of the council since its
j inauguration in the spring of 1924,1
are explained.
Foremost among these accomplish-
ments, the report says, was the re-
alization of student authority in dis-
cipline matters. Under the new judi-
cial power a student may have pre-
liminary trial by fellow students be-
fore final decision is given in dis-
cipline cases which come under the
jurisdiction of the University Dis-
cipline committee and the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs.
miTe old sophomore vigilance com-
cite was abolishd when the coun-
cil was reorganized two years ago.
Hazing was made an offense subject
'o expulsion at that time. The solu-
lution this year has been found in
throwing the responsibility on the
freshman class itself. A freshman
discipline committee composed of
members appointed by the class presi-
dent subject to the approval of the
council, now does the work.
Class dues are now handled through
the office of the Dean of Students. An

account will be kept there by each
class treasurer so that income and
expense may be audited.
The new Student council constitu-
tion was completed and one thousand
copies printed. These are kept in
the council office and in the office of
the Dean of Students.
The council was responsible for the
new cheer-leader system, whereby the
major sport captains will serve on the
squad during other sport seasons.
The office of cheer-leader was also
placed on the all-campus election bal-
The retiring council was the body
which took the initiative in starting a
Burton Memorial movement. As soon3
as all the classes have agreed to turn
over their memorial funds each year
to a common fund which will be used
for the Burton MemorialeChimes.
The Student council petitioned the
Board of Regents to name the new
literary building after President
James Burrill Angell. The peition
was accepted.
In the past the block "M" at Ferry
field has required 2,200 students. , As
the freshmen class varies slightly in
number each year sophomores have
been seated in the section. The coun-
cil, believing that the block "M"
should should be a freshmen proposi-

Education School Requirements
Raised; Make Faculty



Ira M. Smith, assistant examiner of
the University of Chicago, was ap-
pointed to succeed the late Arthur G.
Hall registrar, and the Board in Con-
trol of Athletics was granted permis-
sion to use fifty cents, or any part of
that amount, from the fee received
from the registration'for the athletic
books for the maintenance and tra-
veling expenses of the University
band at the May meeting of the Board
of Regents last night.
Entrance requirements for the
School of Education were raised, sev-
eral gifts were received, leaves of ab-
sence were granted to several mem-
bers of the faculty, a number of ap-
pointments were made, and action
was taken on several scholarshipsI
and endowment funds. The Regents
voted to reconsider their former ac-
tion on the proposed new stadium.
Ira M. Smith was born at Bloom-
ington, Ind., and attended the Uni-
versity of Indiana, receiving a degree
orf bachelor of laws from that insti-I
tution in 1909. In the same year he
was admitted to the bar for state and
federal practice. He accepted a posi-
tion as assistant registrar of the Uni-
versity of Illinois in 1909, continuing!
there until 1920. From 1915 to 1920
le acted'in the capacity of University
In 1920 he was called to the Uni-
versity of Chicago, where he became
assistant examiner in charge of ad-
The fee for dental students who are
residents of the state was raised from
$180 to $200 per annum, and the fee;
for extension undergraduate courses
was changed from $4 to $5 per credit
hour. The Regents also raised the
entrance requirements for the School
of Education, making it necessary for!
students entering the school to have
junior standing with 25 per cent moret
honor points than hours.
A part of the Henry Russell en-
downment fund, it" was decided, will
provide for an annual lecture, to be

Amundsen Safe

Aero Society
Oslo, Norway, May 28.-(By A. P.)
--The Norwegian aeronautic associa-
tion takes the view that there is no
reason for supposing the Amundsen
north pole expedition has met dis-
aster. The association points out that
Captain Amundsen's instructions to
the other members of the expedition
aboard the vessels Farm and Hobby
were that the polar flight might last
a fortnight. He is also said to have
asked the patrol of the ice edge in the
event he did not return within a fort-
To make this patrol as efficient as
possible the association has asked
the ministry of defense to place the

the association's disposal for a con-
siderably longer period than was
originally intended and, further, to
orderatwo naval airplanes to assist in
the patrol.

Northrup Slated For Javelin Throw;
Schwarze i Champion In
Shot Put
By W. H. Stoneman
Two of the greatest rivals in the
American track world will meet at
4 o'clock this afternoon on Ferry field
when Michigan and Wisconsin plan a
This afternoons meet promises to
be one of the greatest dual affairs of
the season and the search for victory
will summon the best efforts of every
man entered. Coach Steve Farrell
will put a team into the field which
can be expected to give Wisconsin
the hardest competition it has had
since the indoor Conference meet at'
Evanston March 14. The indoor
championships went to Michigan by
less than three points and ever since
that time Tom Jones and his Badg-
ers have been looking for revenge.
They will have their first opportunity
this afternoon and the final chance
will come at the outdoor Conference
meet to be held at Columbus June 6.
From all indications the score at thel
end of today's meet ought to find the
two teams less than 10 points apart.
Some of the greatest track stars of
the country will appear on the two
teams. The Cardinal will be repre-
sented by such men as Schwarze,
who heaves the shot 49 feet 10 1-8
inches and throws the discus 146I
feet 7 1-4/ inches. No one in theI
country has approached his perform-
ances in the former event this year
and he will be favored to take first
places in both of those events thist
afternoon. Kubly, the WisconsinI
two miler, has run the distance in 9
minutes, 42 seconds this season and
ranks with the best. McGinnis and
McGiveran are not World beaters in
the hurdles but they rank with the3
best. Kennedy of Wisconsin is one
of the leading quarter milers in the
section and Vallely is a'leading miler.
Les Wittman and DeHart Hubbard,
two of the greatest sprinters in theI
country, will make their final per-
formances on Ferry field this after-
noon. Both bave been consistent first
place winners in the country's big-
gest track carnivals ever since they
first came to Michigan and the rec-
ord books will bear witness to their
calibre long after their graduation
from school. Charlie Reinke, the
greatest half miler running today,
will be another to run his final race
on Ferry Field. Another man who
promises to give the Badgers a shock
this afternoon is Phil Northrup, the
greatest sophomore athlete of the
season. Northrup throws the Javelin
over 200 feet, more than 20 feet far-
ther than anyone else in the mid-
dIe-West. He pole vaults 12 feet 6
inches, high enough to win first place
in most meets. He ordinarily finishes
up an afternoon by broad jumping
around 23 feet, 6 inches.
The 100 yard dash, the first event
Ion the program, will be a race be-
tween Hubbard, Wittman, and M
Andrews of Wisconsin, the two Mich-

In its first extra inning game of
the season, the Varsity baseball
team won the second game of the
Aeries from the Japanese All Stars by
a score of 4-3 in 13 innings yesterday
j fternoon at Ferry field.
After the losers h-ad been retired byA
a double play and a strikeout in their
half of the last frame, the Wolverines
scored the winning run after two
men were out. Haggerty opened the
inning by flying out to Futakami and
Ryrholm popped to Kirihara. Cole-
man singled through first base and
ran to second as the fourth ball was
called on Dillman. Wilson drove a
sharp single to right and Coleman,
limping from the effects of his in-
jured leg, ran across the plate with
the winning run, Takasu's throw to
the plate being late and wide.
Michigan was held to two hits over
the first five innings, but opened up
in the sixth and tied the score.
Froemke beat out a bunt that caught
Futakami asleep. Haggerty was safe
and Froemke went to second when
Watanabe dropped K o s ha i m o to's
throw. Ryrholm then drove the ball
almost to the tennis courts in right
center, but was held to three bases
as the gardeners were playing deep.
The first two runners scored. Cole-
man's best effort was a pop to Kir-
hara, and Dillman was robbed of a
Texas leaguer when Otsumi ran into
short right field and made a one-
handed catch of his hit. Wilson came
through with a hit through thi'd base
bringing Ryrholm in with the tying
run. There was no more scoring un-
til the thirteenth, when Wilson
cinched his hero role by hitting safe-
ly to bring in Coleman with the win-
ning tally.
Tom Fisher pitched the first five
innings for the Wolverine nine and
held his opponents to three hits, all
of which were bunched in the fourth
inning to score their runs. Cherry
batted for Fisher in the fifth. Hovey
replaced him and pitched good ball
until taken out for another pinch
hitter in the twelfth inning. Ruetz,
appearing for the first time this sea-
son, finished the game and gets cred-
it for the victory. The fast play of
the Wolverine defense saved the
pitchers on several occasions. Three
double plays came in to lighten the
hurlers' burdens. In the ninth frame,
Hovey was in a bad hole when the
bases were filled by two hits and a
hit batsman, but a foul fly to Hag-
gerty, Giles' catch on Mori's fly, and
Davis' pretty play in smothering

And for examinations Mr. Burton
also wanted a substitute, which Mr.
Frost called 'publication.' "That's the
trouble with the honors courses that!
are being started everywhere," said,
Mr. Frost. "They turn a student loose,j
and instead of giving them examina-
tions, they give them 'comprehen-
s ves.' Mr. Burton's teachers would
aiave insisted that the students 'pub-
lish themselves' to the teachers. They,
could come and talk, or they could
publish themselves in the campus
publications or they could write
somewhere else. And for the exam-'
luation they could come and talk, or
Write anything they thought appro-
priate to the course."
Mr. Burton was not a President set
apart from his teachers by the big-
ness of the State University, said Mr.
Frost. It was his instinct to keep
near teaching and the ideals of teach-
ing for his own happiness.
