Lindbergh is going home tomorrow.

before have fallen on one of his years,

"I do not believe that we will get
anywhere until we follow the policy
of the other professions," declared
Dean Whitney of the School of Educa-
tion, in an interview yesterday. "I
am for an out-and-out professional{
school for teachers only, comparable,
to the professional schools of medi-
cine, law, and dentistry.""
Dean Whitney gave his opinion of
the new arrangements made by the
faculty of the School of Education

with the literary college concerning
teachers' life certificates. "The fac-
ulty of our school made it with the
view of the proposed University Col-
lege in mind," he stated. "Just what
the effect this arrangement and of the
proposed college will have, no one
knows. It will probably be four or
five years before the final result will
be known. Just how long the present
relationship will continue no one can
say as it depends upon future develop-
Dean Whitney is in favor of the
plan which has just been agreed upon
by the faculties. But to press his
ideas upon the establishment of a
separate professional school for teach-
ers he reiterated his first statements
to further illustrate his point. By the
new regulations raising the standards
of grades and increasing the hours re-
cuired for graduation, he pointed out,
they are following the plans which
are being tried elsewhere in the Uni-
versity to cut off the tail-end of the
students and allow only the ones who

are seriously interested in their work
to remain in school.
"With these higher standards, bet-
ter men will enter the profession and
this will mean better salaries, which
will in turn call forth men with
brains into the profession," he con-
cluded. "It may seem like an ideal
now, but we cannot go straight to the'
point, and it is better for us to have
that ideal ahead of us in our work to
better the teaching profession." '

,28E, Favor Last Fall's Plan
Against Proposal
Three presidents of upperclasses
have dleclared themselves to be op-
posed to the new regulation of the
Athletic association in regards to
having a temporary cheering section
for next fall.tAccording toethis reg-
ulation, no student will be able to
take a place in the section for a whole
eason, making it necessary to fill
the block with new men for each
game. Those who make up the "M"
block will use cardboard squares in
place of the uniform worn this year.
Moreover those men will not be given
extra tickets to the game during
which they sit in the cheering sec-
tion. This action of the Athletic asso-
ciation was taken, it is said, due to
the fact that instances ofdstudents
scalping the extra tickets -had come
to their attention.
Ehlers Opposed To Plan
Ralph Ehlers, president of the 1927
class of the engineering school, is
heartily opposed to the rule forbid-
N ng those in thescheering section to
have extra tickets. Few men will be
willing to sit in the section under
such a rule, he said, ' while a far
greater ,number would be brought to
the games if they couldsecure tick-
ets for their friends. Ehlers is not in
favor of the idea ,of changing the
members of the section for every
game. It is, he stated, another of the
many attempts that have been made
during the year,' to kill the spirit of
the student body of the University.
This year's cheering section worked
well, he believes, so that there is no
reason for bringing forth a new sys-
Henry Maentz, president of the lit-
erary class of 1927, favors a perma-
nent cheering' section if it could be
composed of freshmen who will be
required to practice. It would not be
satisifactry to have upperclassmen
in it, he believes, as it will be more
difficult to get them to practice, and
practice will be necessary for good
cheering. He is also opposed to the
regulation that will not permit those
who form the bloc "M" to have extra
Expresses Dissatisfaction
Wayne G. Cowell, presidentsof, the
junior engineers, also expressed his
dissatisfaction. "I fail to see," he de-
clared, "any reason for the action
taken by the Board in Control of
Athletics in regard to a cheering sec-
tion. Michigan needs a cheering sec-
tion, and the only way in which it
may be made effective is to have it
permanent. Last fall, the cheering
section proved to be a decided suc-
cess. It was colorful as well as being
efficient in cheering. I am heartily in
favor of the establishing of a per-
manent cheering section at Michigan."
Cowell also said that he believes it
will be impossible to have coopera-
tion in the cheering unless the same
men are in the section at each game.
The Student council also registered
violent protest at its meeting held
Wednesday against the provision
keeping the members of the cheering
section from obtaining extra tickets.
The opinion of the members of the
council was unanimous on the point
that few students would be willing to
participate in the cheering section if
by doing so they lost their option of
securing theirhallotment of extra tick-
ets. Opposition was also expressed
against the new plan of using card-
board squares in place of the uni-
forms for the bloc "M" in the new
stadium, and the plan of making the
section temporary instead of perma-
nent for all the home games.
Board Favors Experiment
The members of the Athletic board
feel, it is reported, that the project
of cardboard squares ill be more or
less experimental the first year, and
that if it fails a return can be made
to the use of uniforms. The attitude

of the Athetic association is to the
effect that providing students seats
near the 50 yard line is a valuable
concession in itself and that the ac-
tual operation of the cheering section
is of ser dary importance to this
