Deaths Caused By Traffie Accidents
Hasten Framing of New Ruling;
Committee To Judge

Faculty Comment Favorably
On Freshman Advisory System

Keen interest on the part of the
facutty committee has made the new,
advisory system a success, said Reg-
istrar Ira W. Smith yesterday in com-'
melting on the recently inaugurated
plan of individual interviews for en-
tering freshmen. "The principle is
working out well and we are delighted
with it," he stated; "the new students
will look to the faculty advisor
throughout the entire year."
Prof. William A. Flkyer, chairman
of the faculty committee, stated that
the plan being tried out was sound
and working out satisfactorily in
every respect. Faculty members on
ths committee expressed themselves
as grateful to the student advisors
who endeavored to make the new men
feel at home though not advising theta
on their courses. Waldo M. Abbot of
the rhetoric department, one of the
30 advisers, expressed the opinion that1

the, 4ew plan was far superior to th
old and that sufficient time was allow
ed under the new method for the fac
ulty adviser to outline a college cours
beyond the first year.
Carl Brandt of the public speakin
department believed the plan to b
working out excellently. Similar ex
pressions of opinion of the merit o
the system were made by several fac
ulty committee members, Robert C
Angell of the sociology departmen
.stating that the time permitted unde
-the recently inaugurated system al
lowed the adviser to plan a complete
college course if required by the en
tering student.
A check-up made yesterday showe
the system to be functioning with few
interruptions and general efficiency

ulty in getting the entering students

In keeping with the general move-
ment on the part of many colleges
and universities throughout the coun-
try toward minimizing the use 01
automobiles by students, the Uni-
versity has adopted specific regu-
lations governing student motor
vehicles and their use while tu
dents are in attendance here,
which will be placed in effect
the first time this semester. The
n \ction of the Board of Regents last
- ine adopting such regulations came
t the direct result of recommenda-
tioibs made to the Regents following
"everal conferences between a num-
ber of prominent students and Uni-
Versity officials last spring.
.three years ago a letter was sent to
parents and guardians of University
students by the late President Marion
L. Burton requesting their coopera-
tion. in limiting the use of automobiles
by their sons and daughters at the
niversity. The effect of this request
as not lasting, and in order to meet
with the problem of the unlimited use
of ,cars by students and the dangers
nvdlved therein, members of the Stu-
aent council and others conferred with
University officials on the matter. The
fact that several automobile accidents
in this vicinity during the past two
years have resulted in the death of
fqe Michigan students served to
iasten the framing of a number of reg-
ulations at these meetings last spring
which ultimately were adopted by the
Car Use Limited
The new rules do not prohibit the
use of motor vehicles by students in
general but merely limit their use by
.ty ents of more maturity and ex-
perience, whose scholastic record is
of a satisfactory grade and whose
parents or guardian desire them to
have tihe privilege of the use of a car
during the college year. In brief, this
year, no freshmen will be permitted
to drive cars, while neither fresh-
men or sophomores will be allowed to
operate automobiles next year; be-
ginning next semester all students
who, drive an automobile must be
scholastically eligible for campus ac-
tivities; finally every student car
Both me nd vmen students have
until noon t Saturday, Oct. 2, to
register thef cars with the dean of

biles which has been appointed to
superyse the situation.
Committee Formed{
SThe Committee on Automobiles was
appointed by Thomas Cavanaugh,
27L, president of the Student Coun-
oil, upon authorization by the Regents
at the time of the adoption of the new
regulations. The committee is as fol-
lows: Cavanaugh, chairman; Dean
BIursley, and Alice Lloyd, advisor to
wOpen, of the faculty; Richard Frey-
bug, '29M, SmithCady,Jr., 27, and
kelyn Murray, '27. One additional
jtudent is to be appointed at a later
The committee will hold regular and
special meetings. It has been given
power to grant special permission for
,the use of cars ;to discipline students
who are found guilty of violating the
regulations; to handle all doubtful
cases, and in general supervise the
enforcement of the rules and have
direct charge of the situation.
. The first meeting of the committee
was held last week. A number of
penalties for infraction of the rules
-were outlined and adopted. Any stu-
dent operating a car, whch has not
been registered, after next Saturday
noon will be automatically prohibited
from driviag_ for one year. If a stu-
dent in such a case is again found
driving, his case will be taken to the
committee where he or she will be
usbject to probation, suspension or
expulsion from the University. Any
such disposition by the committee,
however, may be appealed by the stu-
dent to the University discipline com-

mittee. No freshman will be allow-;
.ed - to drive cars this year without
special permission from the commit-a
tee, which will only be given in exL1
ceptional cases. Any permit obtained
through false statements, or the like,
will subject the owner to revocation1

With only a few seats remaining
among the 1,200 in the new permanent
cheering section, enrollment in the
large bloc will be completed within a
day or two. The section was opene'
to freshmen Saturday with the result
that a large number of first year men
welcomed the opportunity to obtain
good sekts by registering therein. The
few remaining applications for the
section will be received at the Union
All students enrolled in the new
section are requested by William War-
rick, '27, Varsity cheerleader, to as-
semble in Yost Field house a half
hour before the: start of the opening
game next Saturday.. Each student
wil don his uniform ofyellow or blue
cap and cape at that time. Upon en-
tering the reserved section in the
south stands, which will be marked'
off, students with blue outfits rwill take
places to form the block "M" while
those with yellow uniforms will com-
prise the background. 'As there are
no reserved seats for the .opening
game, those in the cheering section
will be permitted to sit where they
choose within the two color limits.
All seats in the -cheering section
will undoubtedly:be reserved for the,

stated yesterday, in order to avoid any
possible confusion. Students in the

the short pep meeting in the. Field
house a half hour before each gaine'
for the purpose. of acquainting thein-
selves with new cbeers and songs and
to improve the cheering over past
years by more concentratedrefforts.
The project is tbe culmination of a
number of attempts on the part, of the
Student council - to form temporary
cheering sections and block "M's", on
a much smaller scale, during football:
seasons in past years. The permanent
cheering section ii not new to uni-
versities, however and has already
met with success at Illinois, Leland

The new cheering section is situated1
in the south stands. The 1200 seats7
comprise rows No. 15 to 45 in half of
section E, section F, and half of sec-
tion G. The bloc is located betweepn
the 25 and 45-yard lines.

Government Claims That Rihard

(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Sept. 27.-Tracing of
'five $10,000 liberty bonds which com-
prised a part of the $441,000 given the
late John T. King to "help and speed"
the release of $7,000,000 impounded
enemy property, to the Midland Na-
tional bank of Washington Courthouse,
Ohio, of which Mal S. Daugherty is
president, was stressed by the gov-
ernment today.
United States Attorney Buckner
brought out in the conspiracy trial of
SaWry, 1M, Daugerty,' tie banker's
brother, and attorney-general of the
Hardhing cabinet, and Thomas W. Ml-
-ler, alien property custodian at that
time, that four of these bonds were
sold on order of Mal Daugherty and
the sale price credited to the account
of Harry Daugherty. The other bond
was shown to be still in possession of
the Ohio bank.
The government claimed that these
bonds comprised a part of $150,000
bribe money paid Harry Daugherty to
release to. Richard Merton, German
metal magnate, proceeds of the im--
pounded effects of the American Metal
company. Evidence has been com-
pleted for the purpose of substantiat-

Auto Restrictions Seen In Class WiI
Pots, Pipe-Smoking Traditions;
Asks Support Of Campus
"We must make Michigan the most
human and most happy University in
the world" said President Clarence
Cook Little in concluding his address
last night in Hill auditorium at the
first University convocation of the
year. "If we would make our Uni-
versity great, we must make it ht-
man and the other things will take
care of themselves. The University
wishes the students to feel that the
faculty are big brothers and big sis-
ters to them, always ready to help
them straighten out their troubles."
In opening his address the Presi-
dent stated that in accordance with
his policy of introducing, wherever
possible, students into the affairs of
administration, he would outline some
of the steps which the University is
taking to improve the relations be-
tween faculty and students. He stated
that the University is making a deter-
mined effort to discover and to re-
move the causes for impersonal and
unsatisfactory relationships between
the University authorities on the one
hand and the students on the other.
Conditions Studied
Investigations in the following
fields are at present being conducted
according to the President: Attempts
to ascertain a more accurate idea of
the student by information blanks of
a more or less personal nature, to be
filled out by prospective freshmen,
student housing conditions, establish-
ment of freshman week, revision of
the curriculum, pre-medical require-
ments, vocational guidance, cooper-
ative handling of the liquor problem,
thehonor system and the grades and
examination question."
"This is a so-called 'legislative'
year which means that a program of
the needs and plans of the University
is prepared for presentation to the
Legislature of the state. In doing
this the University, conscious of the
past generosity andi cooperation as-
sumes a genuine interest on the part
of the people of the state in the
progress of the University. The
Michigan Legislature is well known
for Its liberality and understanding
of the problems of higher education,"
continued the President.
Explains Auto Rule
The President wished the students
to feel that they were the legislature
before whom he was laying the needs
of the University. As regards the new
auto regulation, he stated that it was
not attempted in order to remove a
pleasure from the students but to re-
move a time-waster and habit-former
and to obviate a repetition of some of
the terrible accidents which have oc-
curred in the past. Dr. Little stated
that "out of eleven deaths among the
Michigan undergraduate body last
year, five were due to automobile a-
cidents. The terrible tragedy of the
death of a young Princeton man in
Detroit recently is another case of
automobile fatality.
Discretion Sought
Scores and perhaps hundreds of
students are not mature enough to

use with discretion the time wasting.
and dangerous power of the automo-
bile. Upperclassmen have always
been ready enough to assume pre-
cedence over the two lower classes.
We now ask that in addition to such
restrictions as deal with the pot, and
pipe smoking for freshmen and the
participation in class games which
tradition rules for sophomores, that
minors in these classes be restricted
from using automoblles. This re-
striction cannot be enforced if the
student body does not want it. The.
rule can be easily evaded and the
evasion will carry the same "kick" as
going out behind a building and light-
ing matches after being forbidden to
do so. We are merely trying to save
the student from kicking himself out
of college."
The President commended the Sun-
day non-sectarian services which have
been the work of the students and
have been of the greatest value to the
University since they provide an
avenue for those students who are
still in doubt and are not church-
goers to understand the twin of edu-
