Registrar Smith Says That New Blank
Wi11 Furnish Students With
"Personal Consideration"
With certain changes the blank
which has been prepared for use by
students entering the University next
fall, was approved at the joint meet-
ing of the University committee on
admission and the high school prin-
cipal's committee on college entrance
requirements, meeting on Jan. 30, at
the Union. To discuss further Presi-
dent Clarence Cook Little's plan for
"humanizing" education, the two com-
mittees will hold a second joint meec-
ing here next Saturday.
President Little, who was invited
to tell the state's educators of his
views on the matter, of college en-
trance requirements, said "the Uni-
versity can do little by itself in car-
ing satisfactorily for the problems
arising from the admission of high
school graduates to the University.
In order to fulfill the sole object
of the existence of any educational
institution," which the President de-
fined as the attempt to increase the
efficiency and intelligence, and
through them, the happiness, of its
students, "cooperation of the high
schools of the state is necessary," he
said. This involves the shifting of
emphasis from the arrangement of
academic curricula to the human un-
derstanding of the students them-
selves, Dr. Little pointed out. It is
the point of view of the student which
concerns the University and the high
schools alike, in his opinion.
Prof. W. A. Frayer of the, history
department has been appointed to
study the feasibility of instituting
"freshman week" here in the fall,
when in accordance with the plan
suggested previously by President
Little, special effort might be made
to acquaint first year students with
problems they will face in the Uni-
The process of bringing the high
school student to the University, his
life, here, and the final transition to
his affiliation as an alumnus, was
likened to a railroad system. It
might be considered, the President
suggested, that in arranging for the
progress of the student from the high
school to the University, the commit-
tee is laying the first section of track
for the railroad, with the point of high
school graduation as one iterminal
and admission to college as the next.
Giving statistics on the number of
students invited to leave the Univer-
sity after their first semester, Regis-
trar Ira M. Smith, chairman of the
committee, said that as he viewed it,
the trouble was not with the high
schools, 'but with the University and
its manner of treating high school
graduates after their arrival here. He
emphasized the point that the new
admission blank form was designed
to give istudents aid particularly after
they are admitted,-to furnish "per-
sonal consideration which hitherto
has been lacking."
The registrar also called attention
to the fact that the new entrance
blank is not intended to serve as a
substitute for the recommendation
which high school principals are ask-
ed to give entering students, but
rather to supplement the recommend-
ation and to provide University of-
ficers with infofmation helpful to
them after the student has been ad-

In a formal statement of the pur-
pose of the new admission blank form,
which is to be incorporated in the!
printed form on recommendation of
the principals, it was pointed out that
the blank was prepared with threeE
aims in view: first to stimulate pros-
pective students to think carefully
about their college plans; second to
acquaint parents and teachers withI
problems confronting students in the y
transition from high school to col-
lege; and third, to secure as far in
advance as possible, such information
as will enable University officials to'
advise students concerning the various
Problems cf University courses.

Number Of New
Students 566,
Figures Show
New students enrolling for the sec-
ond semester totalled 566 at the clos-
ing of the recorder's office last night,
according to a report issued by Reg-
istrar Ira M. Smith. He explained,
however, that several of these repre-
sent transfers from one school to an-
other, especially those from under-
graduate to graduate departments.
The enrollment of new students in the
graduate school was 195.
Mr. Smith quoted figures from a re-
cent survey made by the School and
Society magazine, which show that
Michigan's enrollment of 9,422 regu-
lar full time students placed it in
fifth place in rank of the nation's
universities, while a record consider-
ing all students, in summer school
and extension courses in addition to
the regular full time work, placed
Michigan in ninth place with 12,181.
In regular enrollment, the University
of California led all others with 16,294,
with Columbia second, having a count
of 11,727. The record of all resident
students, however, with summer, part
time, and extension courses, placed

Smoot Confident That Other Sections
Pending CanI Be Settled
Before Friday
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9.-Th'e way
was cleared tonight for the early pas-
sage of the tax reduction bill, the
Senate reaching an agreement for a
vote to be taken tomorrow Afternoon
on the provision repealing the in-
' heritance taxes.
A decision on this question will dis-
pose of another controversial item in
the bill and Chairman Smoot of the
finance committee, was confident to-
I night that the score of other pending
amendments could be disposed of by
Thursday or Friday.
Passage of the bill this week will
assure tax reduction by March 15,
when first income tax installments are
due. The bill now provides for say-
ings in $219,000,000 in personal in-
come taxes alone, with the reduction
applicable on incomes of 1925 on
which taxes are payable this year.
The vote on the inheritance tax
was put off until tomorrow after seven
hours of debate today, which revealed
considerable difference of opinion on
the proposed repeal. Party lines again
were split with Democrats actually
leading the fight for repeal while "in-
surgent" members of both parties dis-
agreed with the action of the finance
committee in recommending repeal.
The exchange between Senator Con-
zens, Republican, Michigan, and Cpair-
man Smoot which occurred last night
over an alleged violation of an agree-
ment had an echo when Senator
Blease, Democrat, South Carolina, in-
sisted on objecting to entering into an
agreement to vote tomorrow on the in-
heritance tax.
"I don't want any other senator
cheated of time in which to speak as
was Senator Couzens yesterday," Sen-
ator Blease declared. Upon assurance
of Senator Couzens that he approved
the agreement, Senator Blease with-
drew his objection.
Debate today centered entirely on
the proposal to repeal the inheritance
levy which the House has voted to re-
tain with reduced rate and with a
provision increasing from 25 to 80
per cent the credit to be allowed for
payments ot state inheritance taxes.
Declaring: the inheritance field
should be left entirely to states and

stead of shifting the responsibility,
the Senate should invite the miners
and operators to confer with a Senate,
"What is the difference between
our meeting them and the President'
meeting' them?" Senator Borah asked.
"One has just as much power as the
other and if it is a mere matter of
moral influence, let us exert our moral
influence and see whether we can
bring about that which we .know the
President cannot bring about."

Lecture Of

Milwaukee Chemist Gives
Of Leather In'dustry

Describing the fundamental steps I
involved in the, processes used by
modern tanneries, Dr. John A. Wil-
son, chief chemist of the Gallun and
Sons company of Milwaukee, gave his
audience a view of leather manufac-
ture as seen by the scientist in his
address yesterday afternoon in the
Natural Science building. The sub-
ject was "The Chemistry of Leather
The essential processes involved in1
making leather are the same today asI
they were 5,000 years ago, said the
chemist, in opening the lecture, which
was illustrated by lantern slides.
After the hides have been cured by a
salt process, they were first ridded
of the hair and its complementary
flesh layer. Then, following a treat-
ment with a pancrean substance, the
older method of tanning called for an
infusion of the hide with a liquor ob-
tamed from the bark of trees. The
tanned leather is then fitted for manu-
facturing purposes by softening with
a water-oil emulsion and by color- E
ing with a suitable pigment.
Thirty years ago a new method of
tanning was introduced which used
chromic sulphate instead of the oak
and hemlock bark. The leather thus
produced was found to be superior to
the vegetable tanned leather in some
respects, but also proved less com-
fortable to the wearer when used in
the manufacture of shoe uppers, on
account of being very susceptible to
the heat and moisture. Because of
this peculiarity, shoeefactories almost
universally use vegetable tanned
leather for uppers and chrome leath-
