World-Famed Thinker Thinks Genius
Who 1arrie, Becomes Serf To
Thoughts Of Wife
Count Hermann Keyserling, world-
famous 'philosopher, and hailed by
many critics as the leading thinker,
in the world today, will deliver a lec-
ture at 8 o'clock tonight in Hill audi-
torium on the subject '"The World In
The Making."
Count Keyserling, probably the lead-
ing light in international philosophy
today, is here under -the auspices of
a faculty-student committee, on which
ther are 26 men from several de-
partments in the University and many'
students assisting in the work. The
members of this committee are under-
writing the fund which it requires to
'bring the Count here, since he is the
highest priced speaker who has ever
appeared in Ann Arbor. There will
be a charge of one dollar and fifty
cents for the main floor and the bal-
cony respectively and seats may be
purchased today at the State street
bookstores and at the box office in
Hill auditorium. According to the
members of the committee, in the
event that any ptnfits accrue, they
will be donated to a worthy venture1
,in the city.
Prominent in World Thought
As the founder of the "Darnstadt
School of Wisdom" in Germany, Count
Keyserling has taken his place as
one of the practical dictators and di-;
rectors of world thought. In addition
to these activities he is the author of
many books which have enjoyed a
phenomenal sale and have had a tre-
mendous'influence on the trend 'of
thought in the world and in the nit-
ed States particularly, where hie hasi
found manny followers. His books are,


The retiring senior members of
The Daily staff, in an effort to
foster goodwill among all classes
on our publication, have edited,
proof-rp'ad, and completely made
up this edition of our usually
serious paper, without the help
usually given by freshmen, sopho-
mores, and juniors.
The front page and much of the
paper remains as usual, but the
staff has, with alopogies to read-
ers, made over much of the inside
editorial matter in contrast to its
usual appearance. The inside
pages are a mixture of serious
stories, serious stories written
satirically, and plain space-filler.
The editorial page was edited and
written by the sports staff, the
women's page by the sports edi-
tor, the sports pages by the wo-
men's editor, and Toasted Rolls

were written by the editors of
oppcsite columns. All the inside
pages of this issue contain legiti-

In this spirit, therefore, the re-
tiring seniors have changed the

ing that having a little well earn-
ed fun will not be taken too seri-
ously but accepted by the campus
in the spirit in which it was done.

Plans Announced By Fitzmiaurice
Clear Up Future
_ te
(By Associated Press)
The Irish member of the crew of.
th.e transatlantic monoplane Bremen
was back to civilization today await-
ing repair parts with which to re-
turn to the crippled ship and his ice-
locked companions on Greenly island.
When the repairs are completed,
the reconditioned 'ship with its three-
man crew reunited, will resume its
flight from the tiny Quebec island to
Mitchel field, New York.
Uncertainty ClearedI
The developments, announced yes-
terday by Major James Fitzmaurice,
cleared up the uncertainty and con-
jecture which have attended the com-j
pletion of the hop ever since the Bre-
men made its forced landing at Green-
ly island last Friday.
C. M. Smiddy, minister of the Irish
Free State, received a telephone call
in New York from Fitzmaurice stat-!
ing the major would wait at Murray
bay, Quebec, for repair parts for the
Brenen, take them back to Greenly;
and fly out with Barcn von Huene-
feld and Captain Koehl.

Following the institution of a
comprehensive examination at the end
of the course in medicine and as a
prerequisite for the granting of the
doctor's degree, the faculty of the
Medical school has voted to inaug-
urate the so-called "tutorial system."
It is thought that these two new
policies are importantly dependent
upon each other, according to Dean
Hugh Cabot of the Medical school.
"The purpose of the comprehensive
examination is to determine whether
the student has grasped the subjects
covered in the curriculum so that he
can successfully apply their princip-
als to his patients. Since this re-
quires an understanding of the rela-
tion of courses a's well as a know-
ledge of the subjects themselves, it is
obvious that there is no instructioi
at the present time tending to enable
the student to meet this end. The ap-
pointment of tutors for students in

the event. The dispensation of the

during next week.
- A host of -military and civil nota-
bles will attend the dance as honor-
ary guests. Included in the list are

Due to an error it was announced
in yesterday morning's Daily that
Gardner Williams, instructor in the
philosophy department, had been a-
warded a -Riggs Scholarship. The
real holder of the scholarship is Ro-
bert D. Williams of the Department
of English, and an instructor in the
University high school.
Willams graduated from Kenyon
college in 1922 with an A. B. degree.
He took his masters degree at the
University of Michigan in 1927 and
since that time he has been employed
in the Department of English and at

the junior and senior classes is, there-
fore, intended to assist the student in
keeping the material of the various
courses in proper relation to each
other and to the whole," Dean Cabot
As projected, these tutors will have
no power and no authority other than
the assistance of the students. A
small group will be assigned to each
tutor. Members of the group will
meet their tutor at intervals arranged
among themselves and at hours en-
tirely outside of the curriculum. Such
meetings are whollIy voluntary and
their utilization is entirely dependent
upon the desire of the student.
"Students whose capacity is such
that they do not feel the need of such
assistance will be quite at liberty to
do without it, but they will have to
face a comprehensive examination
which will test the 'success of their1
venture," Dean Cabot said.;
Probably it will not be possible to
make this system applicable to the1
whole of. the junior anud senior class-
es during the first year since the
development of tutors will take time.
A beginning will be made, however,
at the opening of the next school
year and tutors will be assigned to
certain groups of the junior and senior
The faculty' passed a resolution
which requires that at the end of the
first year reports should be made to
the faculty by the tutors and also by
the student in order that a definite
opinion may be 'formed as to the suc-
cess of the system.
Initial Perforiflaie Of Comedy Club
Play At MiNe'heater Post-.
poned To Tuesday -
Despite a slight change in the date
of opening, the concluding rehearsals
are being held the last of this week
for Comedy Club's poduction of "Meet
The Wife," the rollicking comedy in
three acts by Lynn Starling. The
play with a selected cast including
Thomas J. Dougall, '28, and Phyllis
Loughton; '28, will open next Tues-
day night in the Mimes theater in-
stead of on Monday night as wast
previously announced,. Itwill con-
tinue throughout the week.
Regular ticket sale for the Comedy
club presentation will begin at the
box office in Mimes theater Satur-
day morning, although mail orders
are being received now. All seats
are reserved and ats priced at 75
Mniss. onghton Directs
Included in the cast of "Meet the
Wife" are Lorinda McAndrew, '30,
LilliandSetchell. 30, Harlan Cristy,
'29, and Richard Kurvink, '29. Miss
Loughton is acting as director.
"Meet the Wife" was originally
written by Lynn Starling for Mary
Boland, and was described early by
)New York critics as hilarious in char-
acter and situation. It was first pro-
duced in 1923 by Stewart and French1
at the Klaw theater in New York with
Miss Boland in the leading role of
Gertrude Lennox supported by Clifton
Webb and Ernest Lawford. The plot
deals with the curious situation aris-'
ing when a husband who disappeared
in the famous San Francisco earth-
quake turns up later with a changed
name to find his wife married again.
Productions Cancelled
Because two comedies-"Dulcy" and
Philip Barry's "You and I"-had been
given by it earlier in the year, it
was planned by Comedy club to pre-
sent something of a different nature,
but a change in date for the theater
was necessary because of the pro-
tracted absence of E. Mortimer Shuter,
director of Mimes, who has been con-

fined to St. Joseph's hospital for sev-
eral weeks.
