Two Groups Will Meet In Near Futur
To Adopt Questionnaire For
Prospective Students
Steps toward carrying out his pol-
Icy of raising the entrance require-
ments of the University were taken
yesterday by President Clarence Coo
Little, when he announced the per.
sonnel of a committee to cooperate
with the committee of high school
principals which was appointed last
fall to assist him in his undertaking
In the selection of those to repre-
sent the University, President Little
attempted to make the committee
representative of all divisions of the
University which deal with students
coming directly from the high schools.
He felt that these persons realized
clearly what changes are necessary
to culminate a more selective process
of admission to the University.
Registrar Ira M. Smith was named
chairman of the committee. The
other members are as follows: Prof.
". B. Edmonson of the School of Edu-
cation, high school inspector and
chairman of the committee which de-
termines what high schools in the
state- shall have the privilege of hav-
ing 'their graduates admitted to the
Universty on diploma; Prof. William
A Frayer, of the history department;
Prof. Charles C. Fries, of the English
department; Dean Jean Hamilton,
dean o women; Prof. Margaret E-
fqt, of the School of Business Adin-
istration; Prof. H. F. Adams, of the
psychology department; Prof. Emil
larch, of the Engineering college;
Prpf. C. C. Glover, secretary of the
College of Pharmacy; Prof.C. S. oa-
kuim, of the School of Business -Ad-
mnflistration; Prof. L. A. Hopkins, sec-
retary of the engineering college.
Th~e committee of high school prin-
cipals with which this committee is
to cooperate was appointed at a meet-
ing of the Michigan State High School
Principals' association held in Lansing
Dec. 3 and 4.
It is planned to have a joint meet-
ing of these two committees in Ann
Arbor at an early date, at which time
it is thought that a questionnaire will
be adopted for circulation among pros-
Aective University students. This
questionnaire will be used to judge
the qualifications of the student for a
+ollege education.

ice Should Be Subsidized
With Michigan's team . upholding
the affirmative side and the Northwes-
tern trio taking the negative, the
qustion, "Resolved: that the federal
government should subsidize our com.W
mercial air service," will be debated
at 8 o'clock tonight in Hill auditorium
in connection with the annual debates
of the Central league.
E. R. Gomberg, '27, John H1. El-
liott, '26, and John O. Yeas ng, '27,
will be the men who will attempt to
bring victory to Michigan this year,
by defeating the Northwestern team.
The team from Evanston, Ill., has
been drilled intensely for the past
several weeks and advance reports in-
dicate that the visiting team will have
a slight edge in actual debating ex-
perience on the question to be disa
cussed. The Northwestern three de-
bated "government subsidization of
our commercial air service" last Mon-
day evening with Knox college of
Galesburg, Ill.
The Michigan debaters have had no
outside competition so far on the air
question, but Gomberg is an exper-
ienced Varsity debater, having been
one of the men to oppose the Illinois
team last year. Elliott won the At-
kinson Oratorical medal in 1923 after
he had eliminated a large number of
competitors. Yeasting, before trying
out for the team this year, had been
a member of the Fostoria, Ohio, high
school debate team. During time elim-
ination process of a large number of
tryouts here he showed exceptional
ability as a debater and won a place
on the team.
Regent Ju nius E. Beal will preside
at the debate tonight in Hill auditor-
ium, and Prof. Henry L. Ewbank, of
Albion college, will be the sole judge
pof the contest. GtE. Densmore and
Ralphi Harlan, both of the phic
speaking department, coached the
Michigan teams.
The Michigan negative three will
leave today for Columbus, Ohio, to
meet the Ohio State debate team there
this evening on the same question
which will be the subject between the
affirmative team and Northwestern.
Thomas V. Koykka, '27, Philip N.
Krasne, '27, and Harry L. Gervais, '27,
make up the affirmative team. The
debate at Columbus will. also be in
connection with the' Central Debate
league activities.
The purpose of the Central Debate
league is to foster discussion in pub-.
lic leading questions of the day, and
in this way to develop ready and use-
ful speakers. The medals and testi-
monials are the gift of Sen. James
Couzens, of Detroit.
Postponement of the lecture by
Prof. James T. Shotwel of Columbia
university, announced for next Mon-
day night, has been decided upon, :t
was announced last night.
Some time ago Dr. Shotwell agreed
to speak at a meeting in New York,
the date of which was not then fixed.
That meeting has now been set for
Monday night, conflicting with Dr.

Shotwell's Ann Arbor engagement.
The local League of Nations Non-
Partisan association, .which is spon-
soring Dr. Shotwell's address, agreed
to the change both because of con-
venience to the speaker and because
the meeting Monday night would have
conflicted with an important session
of the University Senate.
Professor Shotwell has promised to
come to Ann Arbor in the near future
and it is expected that a .definite date
will be announced soon.
