That the stn~dards set for the ac-
crediting of Michigan high schools by
ithe Universityt are among the best in
"the country i shown by a recent
compilation 1§f-figures by the North
Central association. These statistics
show that the °graduate of. Michigan
high schools= had fewer failures n
colleges "than the high school grad-
uates of any Other state of the 20 in
' .the association.
This is, of corse, a very high tribute
to "the high standards& of Michigan
fhigh schools and this fine record does
credit to the 'requirements and work
of the 'University and State Board of
Education. Another reason for this
is given" by Prof. J. B. Edmondson
of' the School of Education" when
he says in his pamphlet: "The fact
that principals are willing to assist
the' University "in this wy (the co-
operatikon in choosing freshmen to
*enter this school) is 'due in no small
*degree "to the friendly relationship
which has been developed through
high school inspection."
In order to 'acquaint the school
superintendents, princlIpas, and
boards with the: standard 'which the
University of Michigan requires for
aeccedtng of state high schools, the
University and the State Board of
Education are now co-operating in
seniding ,out, some of their represen-
tatives to'hold conferences' in central
pointsw around the state to acquaint
various school officiis with the plans,
}standards, and ways in which the
inspectors judge the schools hih
have applied 'for confirmation.
The School of Education sent Dr.
James B. Edmondson,'Dr. Charles
Scott Berry, and Arthur W. Clev-
enger; and the State Board sent C. L
Goodrich, A .0; Thompson, D. L.
Kopka, C. A. Lee, and A. C. Gallup.
Thi'se men pre now . meeting the
school officiae at the'desigated cen-
tral meeting places to tell them of
t1ile various 'e urements' and ways
of the acrediing of State high
schools. Mefligs have already been
held With o dcils in Coldwater, Paw
Paw, Grand pds, Ann Arbor, Gay
lord, Traver ' BigRapids, Iron-.
t wood, Flint, ass Git$, and .Birmig-
'ham. One t is to be held in
]Lansing on 'her 18.
The progr~i and subjects of, the
speakers ha. 'ebeen as follows.
"Specific Rbn~imendations for the
Inivrovement ' l Instruction n the
"Elementary CQy'es," Clevenger; "Ath-
letic Acticitiec ini the Small High
School," Tho-son; "The New high
School Code' oodrich; "The Care of
the Handicappaed Child," Dr. Berry;
"What We Look For When We Visit
Your School" Kopka; "Standards of
Eficiency in w anitor Service," Lee;
"Vocational Work, in the Small
school,' Gall#; and "What Should
a Board of E~ucation Expect from a
Superintendent?" Dr.' Edmondson.
Both Clevequger and Dr Ed-
'>mondson praised the attendance and
great attention which greeted them at
each of the different conferences
around the state. The meetings be-
gan late in the morning so that school
executives could. be present ftor the
opening sessions, and the meeting
places were so arranged as to permitl

fa man to attenid without being absent
from his school for more than a day.I

CHANGE IS MADE
IN ,RADIO STUDIO
A new addition to the University
broadcasting facilities is being used in
sending ont the "Michigan N'ight" pro-
grams s year, according to Waldol
M. Abbot, prog;ramn manager and anl- I
nouincer,. This is the special *'cani-
vas" studio room consIxruct:,(l for this
purpose by the building and grounds
departmient.
The studio on the campus, from
which the programs are transmitted
t o the Detroit News station, WWJ, by
direct wire and then cut over the
air to the radio world, laas been en-
tirely enclosed with canvas this year
for broadcasting purposes. The room
is located oni the fourth floor. of Uiii-
versiLy ball, ihe old Adeiphi rooms..
Floor, ceilings, and walls ar,: arll
covered withi the canas.,; no bare partI
of the floor or wall being left un-
covered. This, Mr.' Abbot believe,, imn-a
proves the tone of the musical nuns--;
bers and gives more volume' to. the
various numbers.
Programs this year are being broa--
cast every other, Friday night from
7 to 8 o'clock under the suipervision,
of Mr. Abbot., The third progra mof
the present year will be on the air,'
Oct. 28.
