Dean Bursley Announces Establishment
Of Permanent Freshman Advisory Plan
To Solve Difficulties Of New Students



Colonel Johnson Withdraws While 21st
Ballot Is Being Taken To
Settle Issue
(By Associated Press)
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 15.-Howard
P. avage, of Chicago, today was
elected national commander of the
American Legion 'in what was the
stiffest fight for office in the history
of the organization.
The election was made finally by
acclamation when the national con-
vention was in an apparent deadlock,
His principal opponent was Col. J.
Monroe Johnson, Marion, South Caro-
lina, who withdrew while the 21st bal-
lot was being taken. The delegates
struggled for nearly five hours to
break the deadlock.
Other Officers
It took but a few minutes to name
the other officers who are:
Vice Commanders, J. P. Sims,
Marysville, Tenn.; Thomas Dusha,!
Helena, Mont.; John A. Towne, Water-
ville, Maine; Stafford King, Minne-
apolis, Minn., and John E. Curtiss,
Lincoln, Neb.; chaplain, the Rev.i
Joseph J, N. Wolfe, rector of St. Bar-
barba's Catholic church, Philadel-
The new national commander is
general superintendent of the main-
tenance of way of the Chicago elevat-
ed railway and is 42 years old. He
was a member of the 55th Engineers
and served with his regiment in
France as a first lieutenant in con-
structing and repairing railroads.
Prior to the balloting, the conven-
tion completed consideration of com-
mittee reports. One of the last to be
adopted was that of the naval com-
mittee which urged that "There be no
reduction of the enlisted personnel
of the navy at this time." Other rec-
ommendations were:t
The construction.of a naval base
on the West coast that will be able
to repair and outfit the largest battle-
ships and cruisers.
The further development and con-
struction of the submarine as one of1
the best and least expensive types of,
ship f(Vr general defensive and offen-
sive operations.
Must Serve Two Yearst
That all graduates . of the naval
academy be compelled to give two1
years service before being-permitted
to resign.
That the naval reserve be maintain-
ed at the highest possible standard of
efficiency and sufficient in number to
provide the necessary supplementaryt
personnel to mobilize the fleet and all
its auxiliaries.
That the naval reserve officers whent
found competent should be given
technical education on the subjects
pertaining to their official duties in
the reserves.
That American interests should re-{
ceive the same protection in foreign
countries as is given by other first1
class powers, and that a sufficient

Inauguration of a permanent ad-
visory system for freshmen, whereby
first year men will receive the bene-
fit of faculty help in solving scholastic
or personal problems, was announced
yesterday by Joseph A. Bursley, dean
of students. The new system will be
entirely separate and distinct from the
classification advisory system inau-
gurated this fall, and is said to be in
accord with the University's policy
of attempting to lessen the confusion
of the change from high school to col-
lege !life. The plan is necessarily ex-
perimental for the present.
Approximately 250 freshmen have
been divided into groups of about 25
men, each group having one faculty
advisor. These groups have been se-
lected by several methods. Several
groups are composed of students liv-
ing within a certain area, two groups
are made up of students selected at
random, and others have been trans-
ferred from the freshman classifica-
tion groups. It is expected that this
miscellaneous selection of students
will shed some light at the end of the
year on. the best method of organiz-
ing the men. Studerits in the literary,
engineering and architectural colleges
have been placed in individual groups.
The ten faculty members who will
have charge of the freshmen groups
are Prof. A. S. Aiton, R. C. Angell,
Waldo Abbott, Prof. S. S. Attwood,

Prof. P. E. Bursley, Prof. A. L. Clark.
L. F. Dow, Prof. A. R. Morris, and
Prof. C. T. Olmsted. Each has been
permitted to select the method which
seems best in advising the freshman
groups. It is expected that the ad-
visor will occasionally meet with the
group as a whole and with individu-
als in personal conference. This will
continue throughout both semesters of
the school year.
Faculty advisors met yesterday in I
the office of Dean Bursley and con-
ferred as to the steps to be taken
in the near future, and the best meth-
ods of approaching the prOblems, to-
wards making the groups successful,
and bringing about a closer faculty-
student relationship.'
Dean Bursley stated that the plan
was experimental, and the changes inj
it will be made when the best method
of grouping the freshmen is worked
out. He said further that the students
would have to go more than half way
in meeting the advisors as faculty1
duties would prevent their looking up1
each individual student. The new1
groups are planned to work into and
in conjunction with the groups at the
Union, though definite steps have not
as yet been taken in this direction.f
The faculty advisors will meet with
Dean Bursley from time to time to
consider plans and compare notes on1
developments in general.t

Olson Will Wield
Baton For Varsity
Band Parade Today
George Olson, one of the first drum-
majors of the Varsity band, and now
an orchestra director of wide repute,
will return to his former position for
a short time this afternoon to wield
the baton. Olson was drurh-major in
1914, and since leaving school has
been organizing and directing dance
orchestras with considerable success.
This week he has been playing for
the General Motors corporation at the
latter's building in Detroit, and it is
through the courtesy of that company
that he has been allowed to break his
engagement for the afternoon to re-
sume his old post for a few moments.
The Conference season will be initi-
ated today for the Varsity band as
well as the team, and the former or-
ganization is reported as being pre-
pared to greet Minnesota with new
formations and improved drilling. Last
Saturday was more or less a day of
rest for the yellow and blue bands-
men, for most of the time allotted was
given over to the United States Ma-
rine and Michigan State delegations.
The guests were accorded the honor
of doing most of the parading both

Aurora Borealis Causes Air Currents
That Cripple Land And
Cable Service
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 15.-A magnetic
storm of unusual int'ensity swept over
the northeastern United States and
'Canada today.
Going on one of its worst rampages
in many months, in aurora borealis,
maker of celestial fireworks that fre-
quently light up the arctic night,
caused air' currents that stopped the
operation of telegraph and cable wires
entirely for a period this afternooni
and throughout the day crippled both
land and sea cable services.
Low transmission of market trans-
actions between Wall street and Lon-
don was caused by the magnetic dis-
turbances this morning, but by the
time the height of the disturbance was
reached this afternoon most of the
trans-Atlantic market transmission
had been completed.
Telegraph experts reported that the
disturbance apparently did not go
South or West beyond New York, but
'the fact. that wires in this locality
were paralyzed at different periods
during the day affected messages go-
ing to and from all sections of the
country and to foreign countries.
For a while this afternoon nearly
every wire in the New York offices of
the Associated Press was "dead." In
Canada, the Canadian Press and

clared eligible for competition late
yesterday, Michigan will meet the
strong University of Minnesota foot,

Conference season at 3 o'clock (city
8 time) this afternoon at Ferry field.
Michigan's line showed many de-
fects in the opening non-Conference
games, but with constant drilling in
blocking and tackling, and with Lov-
ette resuming his place at right guard,
the Michigan coaches place their
hopes on the Wolverine line to break
up the Minnesota shift.

Minnesota, still suffering from the
sting of defeat at the hands of the
powerful Notre Dame team, has invad-

Alumni Are Linked More Closely To Therlr College By
Radio, Says Kraus; Yost Explains Plans For New Stadium

l II

Some colleges and universities
which have installed their own radio
stations have even undertaken to
give credit courses through the air,
and in more than 50 institutions of
higher learning the radio is used to
keep in closer touch with alumni and
friends than would otherwise be pos-
sible, said Edward H. Kraus, dean of
the College of Pharmacy and the Sum-'
mer session, in the first of the four-
minute talks which was broadcast
from University hall last night.
In tracing the history of broadcast-
ing here, Dean Kraus explained that
the Extension division in 1922 co-
operated with station WWJ by furn-
ishing speakers from the various fac-
ulties to appear on their programs.
The next step came in 1923 when thej
electrical engineering department con-
strpeted a small station WCBC, the}
speaker continued, but this remained
in operation but a short time. The
cost of erecting a University owned
station was prohibitive, however,
and so last year a series of programs
which were known as Michigan
Nights were broadcast regularly
through the courtesy of station WJR,
the Jewett Radio corporation of Pon-
tiac, and WCX, the Detroit Free Press.
And from now until next May, Dean
Kraus explained, there will be 14 pro-
grams covering practically every field'
of endeavor.

respect of people everywhere as her
University. Her alumni have gone to
all parts of the globe and have been a '
credit to her. They have been a tre-
mendous asset to the state indus-
trially, socially, and in many other
ways. This factor is often lost sight
of and not appreciated."
(The late President Woodrow Wilson I
was quoted ns having said: "I regard;
the University of Michigan as the first
post of influence, educationally,.in this
country today." And speaking of whyf
he left Minnesota to come here, thel
late President Marion Leroy Burtonl
was referred to as saying: "I was in-
fluenced to come to the presidency of
Michigan because the governing board
is a constitutional body, the institu-(
I tion is strategically situated in theI
Middle West, has a large body of(
alumni, and is ideally planned for a
[democracy in education."
Regent Sawyer complimented the
residents of the state, who through
their governor and legislature, have
understood the' necessities of the
University and have "properly, cour-
ageously, and cheerfully met these
needs." He also explained that the'
mill tax, based upon the valuation of
the property of the state was a just'
and ecu itable source of income, and
should be restored in order that the
needs of the University can always be

meet, the "little brown jug" has been
displayed at the game and has gone
as a trophy to the winning eleven.
Coach Yost then explained the con-
struction of the new stadium and how
it was being financed by a bond issue
in which any citizen of the state, any
alumnus or former student may parti-
cipate. In giving one of the reasons
for the need of such a structure he
said "not once during the last five
years has Michigan engaged in a ma-
jor sport football game at which there
was not a complete sell-out long be-
Ifore the day of the game."
Hobbs Talks
The series of speeches was con-
cluded by Prof. William H. Hobbs of
the geology department with a reci-
tation of the experiences of his ex-
pedition to Greenland. Professor
Hobbs explained that this was only
a preliminary trip and that a depot of
equipment and fuel had been laid
down and that arrangements had been
made with the Danish governor at
Holstensborg to have pemmican
kerosene, and other supplies which
were left with him, carried in by dog
sleds during the coming winter.
"Several alternative sites have been
selected on mountain tops for a
weather station to register the times
when outrushes of air from the inland
occur, and it is expected later that it
will be possible from such a situation
