Michigan, likewise, receives a great,
trust with this gift. A man who has
confidence in this school has entrusted
it with a gift to be used in a cause
that is vital to the very progress of1
civilization. Beside the pride which
we should justly feel in being singled
{ out, with one other university, as the
place most likely to achieve results
with the money thus given, is the re-

University to accomplish that end.
The receipt of the gift, from one so
broad and generous, places squarely

ROLAND HAYES
A Review by Robert Ramsey
There is a tradition that the mother
of Mrs. Hayes, who must herself be
a remarkable woman even as Laetitia
Romolina or the thin breasted Nancy
Hanks, is constantly reminding him
of the position which his race has cut
out for him with words, "Remember'
who you are!" I wonder if either Mr.
Hayes or his mother really realizes
the position to which he has attained
despite the barriers which poverty and
convention placed in his way. I thihk
that it would be no exaggeration to
say that in certain respects, he is
the greatest lyric tenor singing to-
day. Martinelli and Lauri Volpi,
lusty, rib-cracking tenors, both of
them, can outshout him; he equals
Gigli in everything save sheer voice.
As a matter of style, he surpasses
anything that has been heard here

Night Editor-STANFORD N. PHELPS
SECOND SEMESTER ELECTIONS
One'of Michigan's long standing tra-
ditions, along with the fall games and
the wearing of the pot by freshmen,
has been that the registration and
election of courses for the second se-
mester should be accompanied by the
maximum of delay, confusion, and,
general disruption. Elections have
been hastily made either during the
first week of the semester, to the lossl
of that week for study, or else during
the examination period when students
are preparing for finals. The system
or lack of it, has been a loose cog in
the educational machinery.
Many other universities have a sec-
ond semester elections period im-,
mediately following the holiday period
which has been found successful in
solving the problem. During a two
week period students call at their con-
venience at the university offices to
secure an appointment with their clas-
sifications advisor, meet him at the
hour scheduled, and decide upon the
courses jo be taken in the second
term. Those students whose curri-
culum does not require the committee
to pass upon it, make their schedulesj
themselves in the usual way . But an
hour or two is required in the process
and unavoidable changes can be made
later.j
Why could not the University set a
similar two week period sometime be-
tween the holiday vacation and the
final examination when those studentsj
who must have the consent of the com-
mittee and those who are permitted
to make their own elections would be
able to get this work out of the way?
With two weeks time no student would
be too rushed to perform the task. I
The fact that the first semester marks
are not yet known means little, for
they have never been available at
elections time in the past. Some suchG
plan of an extended election periodj
in the days following the Christmas
vacation would do much to eliminate
the present confusion and smooth the
path of student and faculty member!

OTHER WAYS
"Wanted - More Football" says
President Little in his article in
Thursday's Chimes. "You bet your
life-we're all for it," say Michigan
students, "but, we don't like your
methods; there are too many points
against them."
There are points in favor of the
new "Home-and-home" idea, as every
student will admit, but the main trou-
ble is that it seems to break up the
real interest in collegiate football.
Two varsities instead of one, half
staying at home and half off playing
some place else, seems to completely
disrupt the sport. However, some-
thing must be done to relieve the
present situation.
In the Pacific Coast Conference, as
in the Big Ten, Freshmen are not al-
lowed to participate in Conference
Varsity football, however, often,
' Freshman games are played at home
when the varsity is traveling. Why
couldn't this idea be applied to our
problem. If worst comes to worst,
have an upperclassmen and a lower
classmen team. This answers the ob-I
jections on both sides.
Adopting President Little's order of
I presentation, The number of players
would be increased, more than dou-
bled, in fact, allowing for second
teams to scrimmage in practice with
their respective groups. Two coaches
would be developed and the head
coach would still hold the upper
hand. Economy for Students. True,
certain students would follow the Var-
sity or upperclass team, but regard-
I less there would always be a certain
number who would leave by the
"Home and Home System." Relief of
Seating Situation. Students might
have a chance to see at least one
game a season from inside the one-
yard lines. Weakening of professional

sport. Professional football will con-

POSSIBLE OBJECTIONS. (To the
Home and Home Idea. Used here to

ceipts will fall off." Most all students
would attend the underclass games
and the income from Varsity contests
would not be materially changed. The
fact that we had to see the season's
games this year through the goal-,
posts didn't have any effect. 'fIt may
