ENDS -YEAR'S VOTING
Studetis Found Balloting Who Are Not
Euti led to Cast Votes Will
Freshnien of all schools and col-
leges of the University will elect their
officers for the year next Tuesday and
Wednesday, following the election
schedule arranged by the Student]
council. This balloting will conclude
the organization of the various class-
es for this year.
Any student found voting in any of
the freshman elections in which he is
not entitled to vote will be suspended
from the University by the action of
the Senate Committee on Student Af-
fairs, acting in conjunction with the
Student council, it was announced by
the council last night. The doors of 1
'all the election rooms will be watched
by members of the council and by
junior honor society men, who will
achallenge the right of any student to
enter who is known to be a member
of any class other than the particular
elass voting. .
The election of the freshman class
of the literary college, which is al-
ways the largest gathering handled
by the council election committee
during the year, will be closely super-
vised by councilmen and members of
the junior honorary societies. The
doors of Hill auditorium will be open-
td at 3:45 o'clock, 15 minutes before
the balloting will start. Only two
doors will be opened- and these will
be closely watched to prevent upper-
classmen or freshmen of other schools

used in the previous elections, but
will be printed on colored paper.

of any of the elections should be made
to the nresident of the council or
the chairman of the election commit-
tee immediately following the election
questioned. All ballots will be filed

ion, where recounts can be made if
FISHBEIN TO ADDESS
"The Art of Preparing Medical
Papers" is the subject of a lecture to
be given by Dr. Morris Fishbein, edi-
tor of the journal of the American
Medical association, at 10 o'clock this
morning in the west amphitheater of
the Medical building. The speech,'
which is being held under the aus-
pices of Alpha Omega Alpha, national
honorary medical fraternity, is the
first of the year for the entire medical
faculty and students.
Dr. Fishbein is also. the editor of
eHygeia and has gained a reputation
for himself through his numerous
books and magazine articles on medi-
cal subjects. His most recent work
is "Medlical Follies." Both as an un-
dergraduate and graduate he studied
at the Rush Medical school of the
University of Chicago.
Dr. Fishbein also addressed mem-
bers of the University Press club last;
night at the Union on "The Doctor
Diagnoses the Newspaper."

iM embers of the .reception committee
of the Union, headed by Karl Craw-
ford, '27, will be at the Union and at
the Michigan Central railroad depot
until game time today for the purpose
of :-sssting visiting alumni and others
in every way possible.
Alumni or parents who have not yet
obtained rooms will be directed by the
students to the Union, where the
rooming house list will be available at
the booth in the main lobby. Scores
of students have obtained rooms for
parents and friends through the list
compiled at the Union, but a few ad-
dIresses were still on the list last
night. It is probable that more room
addresses will be telephonied to the

believes, in which case they will be
immediately added to the present list.

HEADS OF AMERICAN MEDICAL
JOURNAL AND TOLEDO
Says Efficiency of British Judicial
System Is Due to Non-Partisain
Control of Court
Dr. Morris Fishbein, editor of the
Journal of the American Medical as-
sociation, and Grove Patterson, editor;
of the Toledo Blade, delivered the two
main addresses yesterday evening at
the annual banquet of the University
Press club which opened its three-day
convention here Thursday.
Scientific medicine, said Dr. Fish-
bein, who gave the principal address
of the program, feels that its future
depends upon the co-operation of the
press in a plan of education of the
public. In an earlier part of his
speech he pointed out the shortcom-
ings and blunders of newspapers in
treating medical subjects.
In the second address of the pro-
gram Grove Patterson presented the
ideas of the "New Aristocracy" as the
fifth state evolving from Burke's
"Fourth State." This new group which
would consist of "all those whose
care, would interpret its superiority,I
not in arrogance and pride, but in a
responsibility to humanity."
The opening address on the morn-
ing program was given by Prof. Ed-
son R. Sunderland of the Law school,
on conclusions -drawn from a six
months investigation of the English
court procedure. The efficiency of the
British judicial system, he said, is
due to the non-partisan control of
the court instead of a partisan con-
trol by the lawyers.
Seek Stealer Of
Some one, a jovial person no doubt,
drunk with the joy of victory, of
course, took, in a moment of ecstasy
following the game at Urbana last
week, a tailor's dummy that had been
used for decorative purposes in one
of the fraternity houses. A letter,
received by Joseph A. Bursley, Dean
of Students, from the assistant dean
of men at Illinois, claims the missing
dummy to be valued at $50.
The same letter went on to say that
the owner of said dummy would be
very grateful if the stolen article
could be located. One or several stu-
dents here are under suspicion for
having carried the dummy back home.

If the field is in a dry condition,
both teams will undoubtedly resort to
a passing game. Michigan did not
have an opportunity to unleash its
forward pass attack at Urbana last
week, and will unquestionably use the
forward pass to effect a score on the
Navy. Michigan will have a slight-
weight advantage, but will face one
of the fastest set of backfield men
in the East.
Shapley will be one of the most
closely watched players on the field.
The Navy fullback has proven a sen-
rational runner and will prove a men-
ace to the Maize and Blue team at all
times. Lentz, captain of the Ann-
apolis team, is a powerful guard, and
has earned a reputation in the pre-
vious games on the Navy schedule.
Coach Yost will use the same team
that faced Illinois last week. Tom
