In the opinion of Prof. Allan S.
Whitney, dean of the School of Edu-
cation, "the chief cure for crime is
fair, steady, and consistent parental
discipline. This should be followed
by like treatment in the schools.
Early in life the child ought to be
given some task that would develop
his or her sense of responsibility," he
The laxity of some parents in their
control of children, the inconsistency
of others in treatment of some of the
actions of the children, and the utter
inability of still others in holding the
interest of the children are some of
the 'many causes that divert children
to crime from which it is difficult,
often impossible, to rectify them,
stated Professor Whitney.
"People often wonder," he remark-
ed, "why the rural districts contribute
such a great portion of our really
great men. The reason for this is that
the country boy is early in life im-
pressed with a sense of responsibility.
He has his chores to fulfill and is
made to realize that their fulfillment
depends wholly upon him. He culti-
vates a feeling that his father has a
great deal of confidence in his ability
and that he is really his father's part-
ner. The boy thus brought up also

Discusses Questions Connected With
Newspaper Profession At Press
Touching upon those things which
j every student of journalism has defi-
nitely at heart, A. L. Miller, manager
and editor of the Battle Creek En-
quirer News, spoke to a group of near-
ly 100 aft the meeting of the Student's
Press Club last night.
Is the newspaper business a good,
one to go into? Is there a profit in
it? Is there a good chance for ad-
vancement?-these were the questions
thc former University Press Club!
President asked and chose to answer.
"Getting started in the newspaper
business is the sane as getting started
in life," said the speaker, "because the
qualifications are the same. It is a
matter of personal effort and resolve,
of sincere dedication to the task. Do
your best and you will go ahead. In-
cidentally, there is nothing peculiar
about the newspaper business as dif-
ferentiated from any otherbusiness:
there is plenty of room at the top;
but you will find no elevator to take
you there: you must walk."
Mr. Miller advised those 'looking
forward to going into the newspaper
profession "to look out for the rut.
Do not become so absorbed in any
one job that you becomeso satisfied
and comfortable that you fail to get
out and go on."
Pregeding the address a short busi-
ness meeting was held. Eugene Gute-
kunst, '27, was electedapresident of
the club to take the place of Court-
land C. Smith, '28, whose letter of
resignation was tendered. Everett K.
Wright, '27, was elected editor of the
Press Club Journal which will be read
at each meeting.

lbecomes self reliant-if while out in
the field some part of his plow or
other implement he happens to be
working with breaks down he exer-
cises some of his own ingenuity by re-
pairing it himself rather than have
some one else repair it."
1 "By discipline I don't mean that the
parents should be intolerant or 'crab-
by,' no, the parents should be fair
minded and just in all actions and
also consistent-what is considered
wrong one time should not be con-
sidered right the next without suffi-
cient reason," he concluded.
Well-Known Minister Is Acquainted
With Present Conditions On
European Continent
Dr. George S. Lackland has been
announced as the first of a series of
speakers who are coming here under
the auspices of - the Industrial Re-
search commission of the Student
Christian association. He will lecture
on "Lessons from European Labor
Movements" at 4:15 o'clock Tuesday,
in Natural Science auditorium.
Dr. Lackland is one of the foremost
ministers of the country. Since his
coming to Denver, Col., in 1918, he has
been active in work on labor condi-
tions and has been very successful
in bettering the status of the working
man. He is the head of the Denver
Labor college and a leader in the Den-
ver open forum.C
Dr. Lackland has just returned from
Europe and is therefore acquaintedp
with the present conditions there. Be-c
sides making the speech in Naturale
Science auditorium, he will visit sev-t
eral smaller groups and discuss vari-
ous topics with them. Some of theset
are: "Why United States is Not Pop-C
ular," "American Debtors," "Musso-
lini, the Alternative to Democracy,"
'The New Germany," and "Research
and the World Peace." He will re-
main in Ann Arbor from Nov. 15 ton
The Industrial Research commis- b
sion, under whose auspices Dr. Lack-a
land is appearing here, resulted fromc
a movement started in Denver about
six years ago, the purpose of which
was to bring the students face to face
with the real problems of life. Inb
1920 a number of students went toh
Denver and spent the summer in or-
ganized study of industry. They met I
together and discussed their discov-o
eries several times a week. Since then
the movement has spread rapidly and
now is in many of the largest cities
of the United States.-
Plans are already being made ford
work next summer in Detroit and a
group of fifty will be chosen who willt
take part in the work. Those inter-
ested should turn in their application
to the committee in Lane hall. How-c
and Puckett, '27, is general chairman
of the committee.C
S. T. C. Stillwell, of the Forest
Products Research Laboratory of
South Farnborough, England, is to be
the guest of the Forestry. department
of the University today. Mr. Stillwell
will spend the day visiting the differ-
ent forestry rooms and departments,
and in consultation with the members
of the department. In the evening he
will be entertained at an informal din-
ner at the Union.I
Mr. Stillwell is chiefly interested in
the dry kilning of wood and is in this I
country for the purpose of making an;

extensive study of our methods and
practices in this line.

Life on Mount Athos most nearly
resembles that of the Middle Ages
than that of any other place in the
world, said. Prof. Kiropp Lake of
Harvard, speaking of "The Monks and
the Manuscripts on Mount Athos"
yesterday. This was the first of aI
series of three lectures by Professor
Lake which are being sponsored by
the School of Religion.
"Until 1913 religious superstition
was so strongly opposed to the pres-
ence of any female on Mount Athos
that there was not so much as a hen
to be found there, and even now the
Credit Will Be Given For Tuition Fee
If Students Favor Amendments
To Constitution
Life membership drives such as
have been conducted annually on the
campus by the Union, will end in the
future should the proposed amend-
ments to the Union constitution be
adopted, it was announced by the life
membership committee yesterday.
The task of obtaining life members
would be alleviated inasmuch as the
amendments, if adopted, would auto-
matically provide life memberships
for students entering the University
this fall and thereafter. It was also
decided by the Board of Governors
who drew up the amendments that
since all payments of the new $10
Union portion of tuition might be
credited to a permanent membership,
any annual attempt to secure the dif-
ference necessary to obtain such a
membership would be unadvisable.
Should the amendments not be passed
at the meeting of all Union members
which is to be held next Wednesday,
the life membership committee under
Clarence W. Little, '28, plans to con-
tinue the annual drives as in the past.
The committee also wishes to make
it clear that of the $8 increase In.th"
men's tuition this fall, the Union ele- I
ment was increased only $4, from $6 I
to $10; the other $4 went to the Uni-
versity Health service. The Boardt
of Regents on voting this increase lastt
spring also directed the Union to
apply $5 per annum per student to1
its maintenance fund and to apply thet
remaining $5 to its capital account, all
to be handled according to the judg-t
ment of the Board of Governors oft
the Union.I
Copies of the proposed amendments 1
in their entirety and any information1
may be secured any time in the stu-.
dent offices on the third floor of the
Tau Beta Pi, honorary engineeringj
society whose purpose is the recogni-
tion of distinguished scholarship and,
exemplary character of undergradu-
ates, and of attainments of alumni,
initiated 19 new men to membership
last night. Initiation ceremonies were
followed by a banquet at the Union
Prof. J. A. Van den Broek of the
engineering college, and J. W. Parker,
chief engineer of the Detroit Edison
company, were the alumni among the
initiates. Two juniors, J. E. Starrett
and C. E. Robinson, were also includ-
ed in the group. Senior engineerng
students initiated were G. F. Wyllie,
C. T. Schieman, Jr., W. N. Curtis, R.

Dean .Henry M. Bates, of the Law
school, will leave this morning for
Topeka, Kan., wherehhe will give a
series of lectures this week-end. The
first of these talks which will be to-
morrow night under the auspices of
the Kansas State Bar association will
be on "Constitutional Interpretation."
Saturday night he will speak on
"Popular Discontent with the Law,"
before a closed meeting of the bar as-
sociation. Dean Bates will also make
addresses at Washburn College of

Michigan Progress
Selected As Theme'
For 1927 Yearbook
Of the several themes suggested for
the 1927 Michiganensian, . one desig-
nated as the "Progress of Michigan"
and stressing the development of the
University has been selected by Louis
Robertson, '27, managing editor.
The historical treatnent will be ,
accomplished by combinations ofI
views of the campus as it formerly ,
existed with those of the present con-
ditions. More than fifty old pictures

o% University buildings and campus
scenes are available to the 'Ensian
staff and the best of these will be
used for this purpose.
Tinted borders will be used through-
out the book, as was done two years
ago, although the general tone will be?
slightly lighter in this year's issue.
The general art scheme, however, will
be entirely different than any used
heretofore. Seven pages of the volume
will be printed with four-color~plates.
For greater interest to alumni, the
1927 'Ensian will include an alumni
- section. In the athletic section indi-
cation will be given of the class with
which the Varsity athletes will grad-
uate in order that alumni may know
what men will be eligible for the next
! year's teams.

Yale Regrets Rupture Because it Puts
End To Triple Agreement Executed
Several Years Ago
(By Associated Press)
PRINCETON, Nov. 10.-All athletic
relations between Princeton and Har-
vard universities were broken off to-
day, Dr. Charles W. Kennedy, chair-
man of the board of athletic control
announced. Princeton was willing
Doctor Kennedy said, to finish such
events as were on the present sched-
ule, but he deemed it "inadvisable."
The action was taken this afternoon
at a meeting of the board which
Princeton's president, John Grier Hib-
ben, was present as ex-officio member.
Dr. Hibben announced the severance
with his approval.
Doctor Kennedy intimated that the
climax was capped by the receipt this
morning of a copy of resolutions
adopted by the Harvard board.
The last paragraph of a letter to
William J. Bingham, chairman of the
board of athletic control of Harvard,
read as follows:
"I may also add that Princeton, so
far as she is concerned, would never
accept the implications of the athletic
policy recently adopted by the Har-
vard committee on regulation of ath-
letic sports as set forth in their reso-
lutions of Oct. 14, which I received
this morning."
Doctor Kennedy declined to make
known the provisions of the resolu-

Was brought to athead Saturday, when
throngs which attended the Harvard-
Princeton game in Cambridge were
greeted with a special issue of the
"Lampoon," Harvard undergraduate
publication. The edition was devoted
to jeers and insults at Princeton.
The text of Doctor Kennedy's letter
to Mr. Bingham follows:
"At a meeting of the Princeton
board of athletic control, held this
afternoon, the board voted unanimous-
ly to sever athletic relations with
Harvard in all sports. We have been
forced to the conviction that it is at
present impossible to expect in ath-
letic competition with Harvard that
spirit of cordial good will between'the
undergraduate body of the two univer-
sities which we think should charac-
terize college sports.
"Unless athletic contests between
colleges grow out of and reproduce a
feeling of friendly rivalry and mutual
respect, there can be no valid reason
for their continuance.
"Under these circumstances we pre-
fer to discontinue competition with
Harvard altogether. Should you wih,
we will, of course, complete such en-
gagements as may. have been s~hed-
uled between us for the present aca-
demic year. We should regard these
contests as inadvisable. But we will
be glad to discuss the matter with
you should you so desire."

BOSTON, Nov. 10.-Announcement
from Princeton that all athletic re-
lations between Princeton and Harv-
ard have been broken by Princeton
authorities came as a complete sur-
prise to William J. Bingham, director
of athletics at Harvard.

"I have received no word of any
such break from Princeton, he told
the Associated Press over the tele-
phone from his home in Wellesley to-
night. "And of course until I receive
definite word from Doctor Kennedy
that he has made such an announce-
ment, I can say nothing beyond re-
peating the assertion that this is the.
first news to me of the ,matter."
Director Bingham said he first
would have to receive official confirm-
ation of Princeton's action from the
authorities of the New Jersey univer-
sity before he would decide what his
course in the matter would be.
