Michigan's cheering section is rap-
idly being filled by students eager to
i avail themselves of the opportunity of
sitting between the 33-yard lines, ac-
cording to an announcement from the
officers of the Student Council yes-
terday. Many applications were filed
at the Union yesterday afternoon.
Some of the best seats in the block
still remain, according to the .state-
ment of those in charge. Applications
will be received at the Union this aft-
ernoon from 2 to 5 o'clock. All of the
seats in the cheering section are be-
tween the 33-yard lines.
Under the new plan adopted this
year, the cheering section is comprised
of 1,000 seats. New arrangements have
made it possible for applicants to pro-
cure the allotted number of seats for
visitors and members of their family
outside of the cheering section. In4
some cases it is possible for them to
be relieved of their cheering section
obligations and to sit with their fami-j
lies and friends.
The plan Jby wich the student will
be permitted to sit outside of the sec-
tion at one or two games makes the
student responsible for his seat. But the
exchange of tickets will be facilitated
by co-operation between the student
council and the athletic association.

Dr. C. Ransom Williams Outlines
Plans to be Followed in Teach.
lug Subject Matter
Announcement was made yesterday
by Prof. William T. Worrell, of the
department of Senitics, concerning
the addition of two courses in his de-
partment, dealing with ancient Egyp-
tian language writings and art. The
two courses are to be under the super-
vision of Dr. C. Ransom Williams of
1 Dr. Williams has spent many years
in pursuit of these subjects. For six
years she was with the Metro Museum
of Art in the Egyptian department as
a curator and spent last year in
Egypt with the Oriental institute for
the University of Chicago. Dr. Wil-
liams received her degree from the
University of Chicago and spent
several years studying at the Uni-
versity of Berlin.
In anainterview yesterday, Dr. Wil-
liams gave a brief outline of the two
courses which she is to give. There
will be one course offered of the an-
cient Egyptian language, from about
2000 B. C. This course will contain a
study of the hieroglyphic Egyptian writ-
ings and its purpose is to give a stu-
dent a general basis for knowledge of
the ancients. The other course, Dr.'
Williams stated would be a study of
the main and major arts of Egypt.
This course will be illustrated with
slides and will include Egyptian arch-
aeology, painting and pottery. Dr. Wil-
liams announced that some of the il-
lustrations would be in color, and
stated that she had some rare speci-
mens of Egyptian jewelry illustrating!
the process used by them.in manu-
First Course.
This is the first time a course of
this type has ever been offered here
it was announced by Prof. Worrell,
and students who are interested
should avail themselves of the oppor-
tupity presented, he said.
Dr. Williams was head of the depart-j
ment of archaeology at Bryn Mawr
for five years. She taught both an-
cient and classical archaeology. For
some years she was connected with
the Metropolitan Museum of Art in
New York city and became deeply in-
terested in Egyptology. In 1924 she
published a book on the Egyptian
jewelry owned by the New York His-
torical society. She was the first to
use photomicrographs in the study of
the jewelry. Many of the secrets of
the early Egyptians she learned by'
close study with the microscope and
by actual experiment. After many in-*
vestigations she found out how the.
Egyptians drew wire from flat sheets
and twisting it by drawing it through
small holes.
To Include Middle Egypt Art.l
Mrs. Williams' course in the Egyp-i
tian language will include a study of'
the hieroglyphics or picture-language
of the time of Middle-Egypt, or about
2000 B. C. Both the major and minor'
arts of the Egyptians will be studied
:n her art course. Lantern slides will
-illustrate her lectures. She will make
a survey of the arts, statues, pottery,
Sfurniture, and jewelry and attempt to
interpret the early Egyptian life. s
During the last year Mrs. Williams
has been in Egypt making investiga-
tions in archaeology. She is to leave
for Chicago Friday to visit Professor!
and Mrs. Breasted of the University of
Chicago, who have been conducting
an exploration party in Egypt during
the last few years.

'Legionnaires Are Hosts to President
Of France and Other Guests
At Paris Banquet.
(By Associated Press.)
PARIS, Sept. 20,-The American,
Legionnaires were hosts tonight to the
President of the French Republic, M.
Gaston Doumergue, at a banquet at
'which were assembled almost all the
great French leaders, civil as well as
'military, with whom the American Ex-
peditionary forces cooperated in the
Before- the speeches began, the gath-
-ering of 400 Americans and French
drank "To the memory of Woodrow
;Wilson, Commander-in-Chief of the
American forces in the World war."'
This act of homage was proposed by
the toastmaster, Gen. Milton J. For-
National Com. Howard E. Savage
'was made a commander of the Legion
of Honor at the conclusion of his
tribute to France. President Dou-
mergue himself fastened the collar and
cross about Commander Savage's neck,
and the commander, who is much
taller than the French president,
stooped far over to be kissed on both
cheeks. i
As Commander Savage ended his
speech, M. Doumergue rose saying:
"I drink to a great citizen and a great
statesman, President Coolidge."
W'hen the applause ended, President
Doumergue continued: "I wish to ad-
dress a thought to the dead, and after
the dead a thought to the living who
have come to establish justice." Turn-
lng to Commanger Savage, he said:
"I create you, Commander Savage,
commander of the Legion of Honor."
The Republican Guard band played
the "Star Spangled Banner," and many
of the immortals feted at the ban-
quet board went out into the night,
to be greeted by the crowd, who had
long waited for a glimpse of them.

Many Innovations Will Be Tried By
New Head Of Public Speaking
Courses In University
James Milton O'Neill, who has been
connected for the past 14 years with
the speech department of the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, first as an as-
sociate professor, later as a professor,
and finally as chairman of his depart-
ment, has come to Ann Arbor this fall
as chairman of the department of
speech in the University here.
Professor O'Neill has already effect-
ed a number of changes in the depart-
ment of speech, as it is now called in
preference to its old name of public
speaking; probably the most impor-
tant being the opening of the depart-
ment for graduate work. In doing this
he is following the program which he
originated at Wisconsin where several
Masters' degrees and a few Doctors'
degrees were given in speech. Similar
opportunities are now available at
Another change is the new method

teams are selected.
In this way the responsibility of
preparation for the debate will lie
entirely with the students. Members

at the trials and will offer counsel
and advice to each of the debaters but
further than that there will be no
active coaching. The system will ap-

debate teams have been set for Tues-

register in 3211 Angell hall by Octo-
ber 4. The room will be open from
9 to 12 on Tuesday and Thursday
mornings for that purpose. The try-
out speeches are limited to five min-
utes on either side of the following
question: "Resolved, that the direct
primary system of nominating can-
didates for public office in the United
States should be abolished." Michi-

he has done graduate work at both
Harvard and Chicago. For two years!
after leaving Dartmouth, he was Eng-

Lakeville, Conn. In 1909, he returned1
to Dartmouth as instructor of Eng-

O'Neill went to Wisconsin as assistant
professor of rhetoric and oratory. He
became professor in the same depart-
ment in 1915 and held that post until
coming to Michigan at the close of the
past scholastic year.
One accomplishment in paricular
should be mentioned in connection
with the new professor's work at Wis-
