Contestants For Decorations Awardst
Asked To Turn In Plans
Before Dec. 1
Applications for the J-Hop of the
class of 1927 will be ready for gen-
eral distribution at 1 o'clock this
afternoon at the corner desk in thej
lobby of the Union. Requests for
booths may be made at the same time.-
Blanks will be issued to all those1
desiring them, but preference will be
given to juniors in all schools andf
colleges when the acceptance slips;
are mailed. A stamped, self-address-r
ed envelope must accompany all ap-1
plications when they are returned.
Requests for tickets and booths are
to be in the hands of the committee<
by next Monday night.
Receive Dues
Juniors, whose university standing
is satisfactory, and who have paidt
their class dues will be given first
preference by the invitation commit-
tee in issuing the acceptance notices.
Every applicant for a ticket will re-
ceive either an acceptance slip or a
rejection notice. With the co-opera-
tion of the class treasurers who wills
receive class dues soon, it is expectedj
that all applications will be consid-
ered and the necessary notices issuedt
before Thanksgiving. An engraved in-
vitation, a copy of the rules govern-
ing the hop, and a favor will accom-
pany each ticket issued.]
Those entering the contest for
decorations are asked to turn in
their sketches and plans as soon ast
possible, to Kenneth A. Michels, chair-
man of the decorations committee.
Dec. 1 has been set as.the finaldate£
for receiving bids. The best two willl
be chosen by a committee consisting
of faculty members and the J-Hop
sub-committee on decorations, and
recommended to the regular J-Hop;
committee, which will make the final
selection. The author of the design
chosen will receive a ticket to the ball
and a cash award, depending upon the
detail in which his sketch is worked
Broadcast Music
Although a nationally known or-
chestra will play during the evening,
it is probable that one of the local;
musical organzaitioiV3 will also be
chosen. Dancing will start at 101
o'clock and continue until 3 o'clock.
Station.WJR will broadcast the mu-
sic from Detroit.
Favorable action has been taken by
the committee to establish a standing
J-Hop fund with the Dean of Students
to meet contingencies which may oc-
'ur during those parts of the year
when the committee is not function-
ng. After the balance of more than
$300 had been presented to the Stu-
dent Christian association fresh air
camp last year, contractors presented
bills to the committee which had
ceased functioning; the standing J-
Hop fund would take care of the situa-
tions similar to this.
A full financial budget and a com-
plete list of patronsdand patronesses
will be submitted to the committee at
its meeting next Tuesday night.
Will Deliver
Second Mayo

Lecture Todayl
Dr. W. J. Mayo, '83M will give the
second annual Mayo lecture this after-
noon at 4:30 in the Natural Science
auditorium, on the subject of "Splenicj
Dr. Mayo is known throughout the!
world because of his association with
the Mayo clinic at Rochester, Minn.,
where. he has been practicing surgery
since 1889. During the war he was'
chief consultant for surgical service
in the American army, for which ser-
vice he was awarded the distinguished
service medal in 1919. He is at the
present time a regent of the Univer-
sity of Minnesota.
Due to the limited number of seats
in the auditorium the general public
is not invited to this lecture. All
members of the medical school, are
expected to attend.



Charging the American home with
the responsibility for the condition of
the modern youth, Sen. Woodbridge N.
Ferris addressed Rotarians and mem-
bers of the Chamber of Commerce yes-
terday on the topic, "Give Youth A
Chance." Senator Ferris, who has long
been actively identified with the Dem-
ocratic party in state and nation, is
also a noted educator.
"I talk from the depths of my
heart," he said in speaking of his sub-
ject, "for it is the interest of youth
that monopolizes my attention. I do.
not belong to that school which be-
lieve that youth is going to the devil.
In fact youth is better than I should
expect, speaking from a scientific
standpoint, for the problems that they
now face are serious ones where once
they were simple."
Senator Ferris in defending the
younger generation declared that the
charge, if there is any, for the per-
verted tendencies of boys and girls
should bemade against the fathers
and mothers. It is a lack of the prop-
er home influence that is to blame for
their mistakes, he explained. "I makey
a plea for the restoration of the home.
It is impossible for the high schools,
and the colleges, and universities to
do everything for your children. Edu-
cation is more than that."
The American people continually
shift the burden 'of rearing a family
upon the school, was his accusation.
He cited the introduction of manual
training and domestic science in the
schools as an example. He prefers to
have such knowledge gained through
actual experience in the home. "When
I was a boy I drove a nail because I
had to. The nail had to be driven and
I had to drive it. There was life value
then that you lack in manual train-
Another point stressed by the
speaker was the method of thrift now
being taught, criticizing the leniency
with which parents give money to
children. "Thrift involves earning the
money, in spending a portion of it, and
saving a portion of it," he concluded.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 18.-Receipts
from national forest resources during
the fiscal year ending June 30, 1925,
totaled $5,000,137, according to the
final tabulation made by the United
States department of agriculture. The
money received came from the sale of
timber and livestock grazing permits,
and from permits to use the national
forests for summer homes.
Under the authority of the acts of
Congress governing receipts from na-
tional forest resources the sum of
$1,271,276 will be paid to the states
containing national forest land for the
use of the school and road funds of
the counties in which such land is
situated; the balance of the receipts
will be paid into the general fund of
the federal treasury.
Prof. H. C. Anderson, head of the
mechanical engineering department
addressed the freshman engineers i
their regular weekly assembly yes
terday on t2Ie development and the fu
ture possibilities of the mechanica
branch of engineering practice.
This is the second of a series o
addresses to be given by the heads o
I the various departments of the en
gineering college to assist student
in choosipg the branch of engineerin
in which they wish to specialize.

peakers who will' represent the fac-
lty and the student body will be se-
ected by the Student council today.
Council Makes Choice
The Yost field house was selected
s a fitting place to hold a pep meet-
ng when it was learned that permis-
ion to hold the gathering in Hill
uditorium on Friday night had been
enied by Joseph A. Bursley, Dean of
tudents, on the ground that pep
meetings during the evening hours
were conducive to the "rushing" of
heaters, it was announced by Ken-
eth C. Kellar, '26, president of the
ouncil, last. night. It was for this
eason that the council was forced
o hold the meeting before the Ohio
tate' game in the afternoon. Permis-
ion to hold the pep meeting at the
ield house was granted to the council
esterday by. the Athletic association.
The Varsity band will furnish mu-
dc for the occasion and may lead a
arade down State street to the field
ouse. George W. Ross, Jr., Varsity
heerleader, will be on hand with his
quad to rehearse the cheers that will
greet the team when it appears on
Ferry field Saturday.
Attorney Speaks
Mr. Shields, who is now a promi-
nent attorney in Lansing, was the
speaker at the Minnesota pep meet-
ng two years ago, when the Gophers
and Wolverines met in a final game
that decided the championship of the
west that year. Michigan was crip-
pled by the loss of six Varsity men,
who were all kept out of the game by
injuries, but the Wolverines, playing
their last game with six substitutes,
defeated Minnesota, 10-0 and tied Il-
linois for the Big Ten title.
Kenmieth C. Kellar, '26, president of
the council, will introduce the speak-
ers. The meeting will close with the
singing of "The Yellow and Blue",
led by the Varsity band.
Judge Angell
To Speak On
Law Problems
"Some of the Moral Problems of
the Lawyer" will be the subject treat-
ed by Judge Alexis C. Angell, '78, at
4:15 o'clock this afternoon in room C
of the Law building, in the third lec-
tures of a series presented by the

Michigan School of Religion.
Judge Angell was a member of the
faculty of the Law school from 1893
to 1898, and has been actively en-
gaged in the practice of law in De-
troit since 1880, except for his period
of association with the University, and
a single term in 1911-12 as United
States district judge of the eastern
district of Michigan. He is a member
of the executive board of the School
of Religion, and present senior part-
ner of the Detroit law firm of Angell,
Turner and Dyer. The speaker is the
son of James Burrill Angell, fourth
president of the University.
The lecture this afternoon will con-
tinue the series arranged in connec-
tion with Prof. Kirsopp Lake's semi-
nar in the moral issues of modern
life, given by distinguished represen-
tatives of various professions.
