I pon Graduating From Ann Arbor
High Went To St. Johns To
Enter Post Office Service
Volney A. Chapin, '69, for 19 years
assistant in the Law school library,
died Sunday afternoon at a local hos-
pital, following a three weeks illness.
The doctors believebthat death was due
to intestinal trouble.
Mr. Chapin was born in 1857 in
Ann Arbor and received his primary
education from the public schools,
school in 1866. His parents were
among the earliest settlers of Anil Ar-
bor, coming here in 1833.
Entered Postal Service
Upon graduating from the local high
school, he went to St. Johns where
hie soon entered the service of the
United States post office. In relatively
short periods of time he was advanced
to deputy postmaster andwthen to post-
master. This latter position he held
until 1895, when he returned to this
After a brief stay in Ann Arbor, he
journeyed to Cripple Creek, Colo.,
where he joined in the gold rush. He
spent several years in prospecting be-
fore returning to Ann Arbor.
In 1907 he became connected with
the law library and held the position
of assistant there from that time un-
til his death. At the Law school he
was known for faithfulness and cour-
tesy, and is reported to have held re-
spect of the faculty and students. In
his years at the library he developed
an unusual knowledge of law books
which made him, according to Judge
Victor H. Lane, of the Law school, who
was librarian during a part of Chapin's
service, one of the most helpful men
in the department
Interment At Forest Hill
He is survived by his sister, Miss
Lucy E. Chapin, of Ann Arbor, and

ices will be held at 2:30 o'clock today

from the College of the City of New
York in 1897 and received his masters'
degree from Columbia two years

litical Education and has remained

Coach Yost took the case of they
development of the individual boy for
an example and continued by saying.
"Nothing is more important than that
a boy should learn, during the forma-
tive years of his life, to control and
command his own powers, to focusI
them upon a single end, to mobilize
them quickly and completely,sand yet
to do so with the chivalrous regard
for the rights of the others and the
rules of the game." Such a training,
believes Coach Yost. is the funda-
mental developing power of an in-
dividual toward good and useful
citizenship. In expressing this point
further, lie continued by saying, "Itj
is possible to preach to this boy in
the class room or in the church, to
show him the need and the importance
of it, but it is vital and imperativeI
that he should have something like a

Irregularities Of Curriculum,

More than 400 appointments were
made in the Recorder's office yester-
day for literary students consulting
the upperclass advisory committee or
firs year students who must have their
schedules approved by the freshman
advisory committee on second semes-
ter elections. The appointments were
made to take place during the first
two weeks following the Christmas
vacation, beginning Jan. 4, 1927. The
remainder of the appointment cardsl
will be distributed during the bal- I
ance of this week.
Upperclassmen with any irregular-
ities of curriculum and sophomores
must consult with the upperclass ad-
visory committee while all freshmen
must consult with the classification
committee, during the two weeks fol-
lowing vacation. Upperclassmen with
no irregularities will make their sec-,
ond semester election themselves dur-
ing the period.
Unavoidable changes in the sched-
ules made during the appointment per-
iod may be made, if absolutely neces-
sary, at the opening the second sem-
ester, according to officials.

ated this year to avoid the confusion

canyon dam legislation was given a
preferential status on the Senate pro-
gram today by Republican leaders.
They decided it should be taken up
after the rivers and harbors bill which
comes up tomorrow, the Gooding rail-
road fund measure and the Capper
truth-in-fabric bill are considered.
The program was outlined by the
Republican steering committee which
decided that after the Bouldertcanyon
dlam bill, tie Senate should take up
the proposal to settle French spoila-
tion claims, which have been pending
50 years.
After that two bills affecting the
prohibition service would come up
one to reat bureaus of prohibitionj
andl custoims separated from the
internal revenue, and another to place
prohibition agents under civil service.
Last on the list of the steering com-
mittee was the bill to re-organize the
bureau of domestic .nd foreign com-
m erce.
The Gooding bill provides that cer-
tain railroads, indebted to the govern-
ment and unable to meet their obiga-

WASHINGTON, Dec. 13.--A shadow
of further impeachment proceedings
fell over the Senate as it voted 70 to 9
to dismiss the charges of Federal
Judge English of the Eastern Illinois
district, who resigned November 4.
Senator Reed, Democrat, Mississippi,
surprised the Senate by suggesting
that it devise means of obtaining
testimony in impeachment proceed-
ings without the necessity of sitting
as a court, because, he explained,
"there are other impeachment pro-
ceedings necessary if I have been cor-
rectly informed."
He did not amplify this statement
on the Senate floor, and when ques-
tioned later, he declined to discuss it.
The English proceedings came to a
quick but fiery ending after the Senate
took up the recommendation of the
House manager for dismisal of the

tions and patents, are provided for in

Chairman Green of the Ways and
