Unanimoudy accepting the resignation of President Clarence

"In accepting the resignation of President Little the Board
of Regents expresses the most most profound regret.
"His high ideals of educational standards, his initiative, his
constructive aspirations, his frankness, courage, and sincerity have
made the severing of relationships a heart-felt loss to us all.

Postponement of plans for the
University college until the views
of the successor to President Clar-
ence Cook Little are known and
definite decision'to build the wom-
en's dormitory in 1930 as an experi-
ment in the use of dormitories in
the University constituted part of
the business at the meeting of the
Board of' Regents of the University
last night. In addition, the appoint-
ment of Regent Walter H. Sawyer
as chairman and Regent Junius E.
Beal, Regent William L. Clements,
and Alexander G. Ruthven. dean of
administration, as members of a
legislative committee to take
charge of the present legislative
program, was made.
The action on the University col-
lege as well as the appointment of
1 the committee are in accordance
with requests made by President
I Little in his letter of resignation
tendered the Regents.
Suspension of plans for the Uni-
versity college will halt the work
of a number of special committees
of the faculty engaged in develop-
ing details of the plan. No work
whatever will be done until the
sentiments of the next president
of the University are known.
In a statement issued regarding
the building of the dormitory, the
regents reiterated their stand taken
several days ago at a special meet-
ing when they set forth the matter
of financial arrangements as the

tickets will continue today between

George Bradley, ticket chairman.
"There are .but few tickets left,"

"Plans are progressing satisfac-
torily in all departments," said
Harry Wallace, '30, general chair-
man. "We expect to have an in-
teresting announcement within a
few days," he added.
In his letter to the regents,
President Little gave as his rea-
sons for his resignation his belief
that his '"methods of handling
situations dealin'g with interests of
private donors, political interest,
local interest, and alumnae intef-
ests, are not consistent with
policies which the Board of Re-
gents deems wise" and that .he
hopes "to be more effective in sci-
entific research and teaching than
In accordance with President
Little's request, the resignation
will take effect Septemebr 1, 1929,
and he has been given a leave of
absence from June 20, 1929, to Au-
gust 31, 1929.
From prominent alumni, news-
papermen, graduated members of
honor societies, and well known
persons all over the country The
Daily has received numerous state-
ments and requests for news con-
cerning the rumored resignation
of President Little.
[ Comprehensive editorial com-
meat on the resignation of
President Little will be found'
on page four.
President Clarence Cook Little
was born in 1888. He was gradu-
ated from Harvard in 1910 with an
A.B. degree, and received a master
of science degree in 1912. He held
various posts at Cambridge before
assuming the presidency of the
University of Maine in 1922.
Dr. Little aroused strong an-
tagonism and equally vigorous sup-
port soon after he came to the Uni-
versity of Michigan in 1925 to take
the place of Marion Leroy Burton,
who died while in office. Little ad-
vocated several new forms of edu-
cational methods, a sane form of
birth control, a ban on the stu-
ddent use of automobiles, denounce-
merit of the D.A.R blacklist, closer
contact with -a1umni by means of
an Alumni college, a University
college, and other things.
In his inaugural address, he
mentioned several things which he
later saw as accomplished facts or
as much discussed subjects. His
first try was at the installation of
a Freshman week, whereby enter-
ing students were given a chance
to become acclimated toUniversity
life and to the city before- they
started classwork. This was first
put into use in the fall of 1927, and
proved a happy thing. Under suc-
cessful guidance, it was used again
last fall, and proved to be one of
the greatest innovations in modern
education, it is claimed. Entering
students come to the university one
week before classes begin, and dur-
ing that waek classify, register,
are examined, and become a part of
Ithe university life.
In the spring of 1926, the first
rumors of the later widesnrad diR-
cause for the postponement. A
number of changes are being made
in the plans by Shirley Smith, see-
retary of the University in con-
ference with the architects. The
Regents further stated that theyl
