Reissues Statements Of Regulation To
Relieve Doubt In Regard To
"The entire automobile regulation
stands today just as it did in Septem-
ber, 1927," declared Harvey C. Emery,
assistant to the Dean of Students, in
a statement issued yesterday. "The
only exact change which has been
made is that the fee for the permit
has been reduced from $5 to $1. I
think that these regulations should
be definitely understood; first, be-I
cause there have been some false re-
ports published in the newspapers,
and second, because these reports
have caused doubts in the minds of
many students."
The statement issued to The Daily
"The exemption relating to Ann Ar-I
bor residents and married students as
well as those who have special per-
mission will also hold durinng the
summer session." This quotation is
taken from The Daily of January 8th.
The above sentence attached to the
paragraph in which Dean Bursley
made public the automobile regulation
for summer convinced me that there
is some misunderstanding in regard to
the several actions which have been'
taken by the Board of Regents since
June, 1927.
"I feel that a complete publication
of all action which has been taken
by them in regard to the automobile
regulation would do much to clear up
any misunderstandings which have
come from Press reports or through
rumor; therefore, I have collected the
required data and herewith submit it
to you.
"I have not included anything hav-
ing to do with objections to the rules
or any objections which have beenI
raised by-campus organizations,
neither have I included any of the let-
ters of -commendation which we havei
received. This is stHetly an account
of the various actions taken by the
Board of Regents.
"At the June meeting lof 1927, the
Board of Regents passed the following
Resolved, That no student in at-
tendance at the University from
and after the beginning of the
first -semester of the University
year 1927-1928 shall operate any
motor vehicle. In exceptional and
extraordinary cases in the discre-I
tion of the Dean of Students this
rule may be relaxed.
"The regulation was again mention-
ed in the Regents' meeting of Septem-
ber 30th, 1927,.
"A letter was received from the
Dean of Students outlining the method
pursued by the Dean's office in the
enforcement of the Regents' regula-
tion with regard to student use of
automobiles. The board gave general
approval to the purposes and meth-
ods of the Dean of Students as out-
lined in his communication including
specifically a fee of $1 for a driving
The letter referred to from the Dean
of Students stated that because there
had been a number of students apply-:
ing, who fell into one of the four of
the following classes, namely:
1. Health
2. Ann Arbor residents
3. Married Students
4. Commuters.
the Dean of Students asked that all
students falling into these classes
would be considered as "exceptional"
and "extraordinary" cases within this
class. In other words, in order that
the rule could be justly administered,
The Regents said that as many per-
mits as seemed necessary might be is-
sued to anyone in one of the four
classes, but there is not any intima-
tion in the letter, or by the Board of
Regents that people belonging to any
class should be automatically granted
a permit, or that they are in any way
exempted from the general rule.
"The next action in regard to the

automobile regulation was at theI
meeting of December 2nd, 1927, at
which time the Regents entered the
following in their minutes:!
The Board extended the present
automobile regulation during the;
summer session of 1928.
"Final action in regard to the auto-
mobile regulation was taken at the
January meeting held in Ann Arbor
on January 6th, 1928. At this time the
following was entered into the min-

Busiress Specialist
Scheduled To Talk
Under the auspices of the School ofJ
Business Administration, Thorndike
Deland, of New York city, executive
personnel and placement specialist
for department stores, will give a lec-
ture Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 4:15
o'clock in the Natural Science audi-
torium on "Procuring Executives for
Department Stores." In this talk he
will describe the point of view of the
general managers of department
stores and the problems which they
face in securing personnel for execu-
tive positions. The lecture will be of
special interest to students who are
considering going into the department
store business and to those studying
personnel and vocational problems,
but the public is invited.
Deland will spend all Wednesday
visiting at the School of Business Ad-
ministration. At 11 o'clock he will
conduct the class in retailing, dis-
cussing problems having to do with
the payment of department store buy-
ers and sales people. After taking
lunch with the members of the busi-
ness school faculty, he will hold
personal conferences with business
school students from 1:45 to 4 o'clock.

Lecturer Was Member Of Crockerland
Expedition; Has Lived Life Of
Northernmost People
Dealing with the environment and
life of the Polar Eskimo from the
point of view of one who has spent
four years amongst them. Prof. W.
Elmer Ekblaw of Clark university de-
livered two lectures yesterday after-
noon and evening, discussing in the
first the physiography, climate, and
plant and animal life of the Etah re-
gion inhabited by these Eskimos, and
describing in the second their food,
clothes, homes,-and activities as regi-
mented by the physical conditions.
Professor Ekblaw was connected
with the MacMillan-Crockerland 'ex-
pedition to the Thule land, the north-
west peninsula of Greenland, as geol-
ogist and botanist, from the years
1913 to 1917. The party originally
planned to stay a single year, but ex-
tremely unfavorable ice conditions in
Baffin Bay prevented the ship by
which they were to return from reach-
ing them, until finally Capt. Bob Bart-
lett in the Neptune fought his way
through to Etah in 1917.
Land Is Typical Of Country
The Thule land is typical of most
of Greenland, consisting of a high,
level plateau, composed chiefly of
sedimentary and igneous rock, and
covered inland with glaciers which
form the great ice cap over all Green-
land. There is a fringe varying from
two to 40 miles in width which is free
of ice during the summer months.
The waters about this region contin-
ually are chocked in ice floes consist-
ing of great icebergs which break off
from the glaciers, rising sometimes as
high as 115 feet in the air, and pan
ice, or large fiat pieces extending only
a foot or two above the water.
Through Smith Sound-the path
which all American exporers have
taken to the Pole-tides continually
fIgw at a rate of from four to six miles
an hour, preventing it from freezing-
a fact of extreme economic import-
ance to the Polar Eskimos because of
the abundant small life always avail-
able in this open water furnishes sub
sistance to the animals on which the
inhabitants of the Thule depend for
food and clothing.
No Seasons In Thule
In this region, 1,000 miles within
the Arctic circle and about 800 south
of, the Pole, there are no seasons, but
the year is divided into day and night.
On Oct. 21 the last glimpse of the sun
is seen for a few minutes around
noon, after which it disappears en-
tirely until Feb. 21. The temperature
then drops as low as 30 below zero.
The eyes, however, become accustom-
ed to the dim light, and the moon is
up about two weeks of each month, so
that it is just as possible to make
trips and get about as in the season
of perpetual day.
On Feb. 21 the sun appears for a
few minutes over the edge of the ho-.
rizon, and from then on until April .
21, it appears a little more each day,
circling the horizon, until it becomes
at length fully visible. From- April
21 to August 21 is the period of per-
petual day, but after thp latter date
the sun sinks below the horizon each
day for a few minutes of night. The
nights gradually become a little long-
er, until Oct. 21 when the perpetual

night begins again.-
Collected Much Vegetation
During the summer months of per-
petual day the ice-free fringe is cov-
ered with a small luxuriant vegeta-
tion, from which Professor Ekblaw
collected 148 species; The largest
trees are about three inches in height,
but the flowers and grasses are some-
times as tall as 12 inches. The es-
kimos make practically no use. of the
vegetation, nor do they attem'pt any
The entire economy of the Polar
eskimos is founded on the animals
which inhabit the region. The most
plentiful animal life is represented by
the dovekey, a small bird caught by
the women in nets, which is highly
thought of as food. It is eaten whole,
bones, entrails, and all. Professor Ek-
blaw, just before leaving the Thule
land, made away with 38 of the birds
at one sitting.
The family, which is the real unit
of their civilization, is merely an eco-
nomic. relationship, with the women
