Conclusions Reached By Educational
Committee Also Given,-Ichigan
Graduates More Successful I
Consideration was given to a study
of engineering college graduates, their
earnings, and their relation to college
curricula at the engineering faculty
meeting yesterday afternoon follow-
ing a comprehensive committee report
on the subject by Prof. A. E. White,
head of the engineering research de-
Following the outline of a similar
report for the entire United States by
the Society for the Promotion of En-
gineering Education, the sub-commit-
tee headed by Professor White obtain-
ed information particularly respective
to the University by gathering ques-
tionnaires from several hundred Mich-
igan graduates. In general, the re-
turns indicated the same trends at
the University which were found at
other colleges and universities by the
national report, the variations being
for the most part differences in degree
'rather than differences in viewpoint.,
Of particular interest, in view of the
recent establishment of a five year
curricula including more cultural and
business subjects, were the comments
of graduates with respect to modifica-
tions of the curriculum. They call
for more cultural studies, in addition
to a lengthening of the college course.
The conclusions reached by the sub-
committee which is one of four on
engineering education under the gen-
eral chairmanship if Prof. J. Rayleigh
Nelson, of the engineering English de
partment, are summarized as follows:
In -regard to the number of positions
held since graduation, the architects,
who are grouped with the engineering
graduates in this study, are the most
active in changing positions within
the first year and one half out of col-
lege, while the mechanical engineer-
ing graduates are most conservative.
In general, Michigan graduates vary
little from the average of all colleges.
"Two thirds of the engineering col-
e g e graduates secure positions
through the college or individual
members of the faculty, through the
solicitation of employers, or through
connections formed by the students
before graduation, in the order named.
This proportion is in substantial
agreement with the result of the na-
tional canvas."
Average earnings for engineering
college graduates are 1,850 for the
first year out and $2,050 for the sec-
ond year after graduation. Compari-
son of the national report with the
results obtained by the local commit-
tee as well as statistics supplied by
industrial concerns show that Michi-
gan graduates are materially more
successful than the average graduates
of other technical colleges and uni-

treaty with Germany is expected to
accelerate greatly the conclusion of
a series of agreements of amity and
neutrality with all countries touching

Spring games next Friday and
Saturday, pep meetings of both
the sophomore and freshman
classes were announced yester-
day by Joseph Finn, '26, chair-
man of the games, at which time
captains will be elected and
rules outlined to govern the
coming events. 'Khe fresbman
class will hold its pep meeting
at the spring banquet to be held
at the Union at 6:15 o'clock to-
morrow night under the auspic-

Plans for the two-day struggle
were completed by the Spring
games committeeof the Student
council last night. The tradi-
tional tug-of-war will as usual
be the singular event scheduled
for Friday afternoon, and will
take place at the customary spot
over the Huron river at 3:30

Editor And Author; One Who
Inspires Confidence"
England's political and industrial
situation will be viewed by Sir A.
Frederick Whyte, former president of
the Legislative assembly of India, in
the first of aseries of three lectures
to be given at 4:15 o'clock today in
Natural Science auditorium. Sir
I Frederick will also speak tomorrow
and Friday, as well as delivering the
Commencement address.!
Through a change in the original
announcement of subjects for the lec-
tures, Sir Frederick will discuss "Eng-
land's Outlook, Political and Indus-
trial" today, "The Political Awakening
of Asia" tomorrow, and "Nationalism
'and British Rule in India" Friday,
instead of the titles given in Thurs-
day's Daily.
Prof. Joseph R. Hayden, of the poli-
tical science department, in a recent
article, gives the following comments
on Sir Frederick's work in introduc-
ing the British parliamentary meth-
ods to the Indian assembly. Speaking
of the new system inaugurated at Sir
Frederick's accession to the leadership
of the legislature, he says "Sir A.
Frederick Whyte, will known to many
Americans as one of the founders of
"The New Europe," as a brilliant edi-
tor and author, and as a lecturer on I
political subpects, is spokesman for
the view that the experiment is suct-
cesful. To his task in India he
brought an intimate knowledge of the
procedure of the Mother of Parlia-
ments, gained during eight years' dis-
tinguished service in the House of
Commons, as well as all the excep-
tional personal qualifications required .
in his unique position. The attitude
of the members toward him may be
described as indicating confidence and
liking combined with a wholesome re-

of the House of Commons from 1910
to 1918. He was at one time a lec-
turer at the Sorbonne in Paris, later
a special commission on industrial in-
surance at Vienna, and served in the
Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves dur-
ing the war. After the war he was
editor of the newly founded "New Eu-
rope," and attended the Peace Confer-
ence at Paris as a special correspond-
ent. He has written several works on
diplomacy and international politics.
The speaker will be the guest of
honor at a reception tonight in the

",January Weather" Fails To Preveni
Athletes From Staging
Brilliant Contest
By Joseph Kruger
It was zero weather at Ferry field
yesterday afternoon, but this did not
prevent Michigan and Indiana from'
engaging in an interesting baseball
encounter that went to the Wolverines
4-1, with Peter Jablonowskj, excused
from his duties at third base for the
day, playing the hero role as pitcher.
Jablonowski paid no attention to
the weather. He went about his task

Last Hour Negotiations With
Spokesmen Fail To Halt
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, May 4.-A general strike in all the great industries through-
out the country began at midnight. It affected close to 5,000,000 workers,
including more than a million miners, who had already given up their labors
in the coal fields.
Another day of suspense, of hopes and fears, ended with a complete
breakdown of last hour negotiations between the government and repre-
sentatives of the trades union congress, who had been delegated as spokes-
men for all the men.
Throughout the day and night, every effort was put forward to bring
about an agreement, and even at a late hour, there was promise of renewal
of the negotiations, which' gave the anxious nation hope that a way out would
be found.
The final coniferences developed out of the debate in the House of Com-
mons, but it is still difficult to ascertain exactly what happened in the House,
although it is Believed that Premier Baldwin and the other ministers had
further interviews with the negotiating committee of the trades union council.
The debate in the Commons adjourned about 11:30 P. M. with nothing
accomplished and large crowds remained assembled outside the Parliament
buildings awaiting the final announcement.
The scenes at Westminister were reminiscent of July, 1914. Downing
street was completely impassable, and the crowds lining both sides of Bridge
street, leading to the houses of Parliament, and Parliament Square itself,



Registration days for voting at the
annual Spring elections, which will be
held Wednesday, May 12, were an-
nounced by the Student council last
night as Thursday and Friday of this
week. Nominations for senior and
junior councilmen were also made by
the nominating committee last night.
Candidates for election to the college

nerring college, Law school, Medical
school and dental college will be

A. J. Cook, secretary of the Miners
Federation, on leaving the precincts
of the House, shortly before midnight,
said to newspapermen:
"They have failed; the general
strike is on tomorrow.".
Similar scenes were witnessed
around the headquarters of the trades
union congress in Eccleston Square,
which, throughout the evening, was
beseiged by volunteers offering their
services. Late in the evening, from
the room where the council was sit-
ting, came the strains of "glory glory,
hallelujah!" and the singing continued
for several minutes.

medical students in which prominent
faculty members will be burlesqued.
The take-offs on the faculty men will

ity, common sense and friendliness.
Dr. Meiklejohn believes that there is
a moral obligation in the field of
thinking, that the public should be
taught to decide what they ought to
think about. Since the professor and
the scholar ha refused to make the
decision, the leaders of industry had
attempted to make it for them, but, to
use the speakers words, "they aren't:
competent to decide." He thinks "that
the American nmind is an exceedingly
f clever one, but thinks about the wrong
thing." The American mind failed
miserably to rise to the occasion in
the crisis which resulted in the Civil
war and also in the World war situa-
tion because it couldn't think straight.
Another evidence of this he found
in the fact that Americans spent more
for tobacco than for education, that
morals and education are carried on
like smoking-from force of habit.
Two principles which Dr. Meikle-I
john considered tantamount in form- I
ing a moral code for life are: first,
that it is the duty of every man to
increase the expression of good in life,
j and secondly, that every man should
measure the value of things in life.
The measurements should be made
within ourselves by means of common

there will probably be wartime regu-

ing last night to discuss whether they
should close down during the strike
period, but no decision was reached.
A. J. Cook, in a statement, said:
"The government right up to the last
has taken the side of th'e owners, and
has interpreted the royal commission's
report to mean an immediate reduc-
tion of wages for the miners. That
we have refused to accept and will
continue to refuse by the help of the
whole trades union movement.
"The only terms of peace that Ore
possible are terms that will insure
the status quo for the miners in the
coal fields while reorganization is tak-
ing place."
