Withthe 6opening of each new se-
mester comes a new plan for classifi-
cation and enrollment of students, and
the opening of the second semester of
the present year will be no exception.
Alread~ythe University officials are in
the field vith a new scheme of classi-
fication for. the College of Literature,
Science, ad the Arts, and the enor-
mous work of re-enrolling Michigan's
student body is well under way.
It is only natural that these new
plans should cause considerable con-
fusion the first time they are tried,
and it is not to be expected that the
present one will be any exception in
that regard. Nevertheless, each new
scheme which has been inaugurated
In the past -few years has been a de-
cided improvement over its predeces-
sor, and froi a theoretical standpoint,
at least, tde new plan now in opera-
tion is ceortainly an improvement over
its predecssor.
The lin4s two and three hours long
that used,[ to occur within the memory
of the mlt upperclassmen have been
practicalN eliminated in the past year
or- two. Without a doubt the new
system yill go even further in the
eliminatin of delay and the introduc-
tion of efficent methods. If it does
this, or if I-- promises to do this, it
certainly' eerves the unqualified co-
operatio o the University student
body. '

For more than two weeks, while
the subn arine S-4 has lain on the bot-
tom off Provincetown with the bodies
of its crew bottled up within, there
have flown back charges and counter-
charges, all seeking to fix the blame
on certa i shoulders. But with the
recovery f some of the crew and
the publishing of the log of the ill-
fated craft the commotion has taken
a differe'nt turn-from passing the
buck to seeking a cure.
The flat facts of the last hours that
were lived in the submarine are
brought out much more powerfully4

Now there will be investigating, andy
it is possible that the door will get a
new lock. But the government has
already lost more than one horse.
A recent survey conducted at the I
University of Minnesota among more
than 1,000 women students indicates,,
according to the surveyors, that the
students investigated do not know
'how to study. There is nothing in
the nature of a sensational revelation
in this-quite the contrary-for with-C
out a doubt a similar survey of our
own campus would show only similar
It is a curious thing that University
students, having for their business the
acquisition 4f facts and knowledge,
should employ such woefully ineffi-
cient methods as they do to such a
large degree in acquiring knowledge.
It is curious that this business of
studying has never been reduced to
scientific precision by the acute minds
which have preceded us; and it is
anomalous as well as curious that
men and women engaged in learned!
pursuits should have learned so littleI
about the implements of their profes-
Still, as we round the bend toward
the close of the present semester, it
is only too apparent that the greatf
bulk of all studying is done by hap-
hazard methods-students picking up

Plans for an expedition to investi-
gate the riot situation in England
were laid at a special meeting of the
Rolls Executive board yesterday eve-

Equipped with the best scientific
devices available, the expedition left
early this morning by aeroplane for
England, where they will attempt to
[gain all information possible on the
riot situation.

company entrains on an annual pil-
grimage to carry a message of musical
culture into the more remote prov-
inces. After something like a hundred
performances in the Auditorium they
leave for a nation wide tour, carrying
with them thirty of their first string
artists and four of their most success-
ful operas-usually the ones which
carry the widest appeal to the mu-
sical layman.
This year their repertoire includes
"La Gioconda," "Madame Butterfly,"
"Carmen" and "Il Trovatore"-old
favorites all of them, with nothing
particularly original or creative, but
at least they are opera, and they will
be well done. Their four Detroit per-
formances include Thursday night,
