Alumni of New York Adopt Ten
Year Program, Including
Endowment Fund.
Money to be Used as Means to
Attract Outstanding Men
to University.
Adopting the suggestion made
some time ago by President Alex-
ander Grant Ruthven and Regent
Stone, the University of Michigan
Club of New York has recently ap-
proved the Ten Year Program
which includes as one of its main
factors the raising of an endow-
ment fund for the University.
The fund is to be given over to
the purpose of maintaining some
means to attract to the University
exceptional faculty members. The
aim of the fund is not to encour-
age any particular field of educa-
tion, but to aid in building up the
personel of any particular course
or school that stands in need of as-
sistance or which has some oppor-
tunity to acquire an outstanding
man in the line of their work.
Fund to Aid Research.
In addition to the augmenting of
salaries, the fund is to aid in re-
search and general improvement
where the money given by the state
cannot be used. The idea is not to
raise the general pay of faculty
members but, to bring in key men
for each department in the Univer-
The exact amount of the fund
has not yet been determined, but it
has been decided that the total
should be large enough to add
$1,000 to $1,500 a year to the money
available now, in order to keep even
cane additional outstanding mem-
ber on the faculty. This is regard-
ed as a minimum. More, if possible
is to be raised.
President Ruthven has cited this
sort of contribUtion as the most im-
portant outstanding need of the
University today, inasmuch as the
University plant is in good shape,
and all the other functions that
stand in need of aid are susceptible
to state grants. To turn attention
to these wants would be to elimi-
nate state support and might
even mean actual loss.
Carpenter, '14, Leads Work.
One of the first men to take an
active interest in this movement
which has lately culminated suc-
cessfully due in a large degree to
his work was H. B. Carpenter, '14,
who was president -of the club at
the time the ten year program was
first brought under consideration.
Members Will Receive Coaching
Frem Prof. Hollister.
Prof. R. D. T. Hollister, of the
speech department, who is in
charge of the Thomas E. H. Black

contest had been chosen after the
first elimination. They are Ger-
trude Cook, '31, Joseph C. Calla-
ghan, '31, Richard Deno, '30, Frank

'32, William F. Jacobs, '30, Leonard
L. Kimball, '33, Jack A. Luther,
'31A, Donald R. Toby, '31, and Carl
H. Urist, '30. Both Urist and' Cal-

laghan were in the finals last year,
which were won by Chester Ben-

The members of this final squad
will receive coaching by Professor
Hollister on their papers, which
are to be on some subject inspired
by the New Testament. The final
contest will be held in the early
part of May.
"Students who are interested in
the contest, and who have not yet
tried out for it, may take part in
the next elimination series, which
will take place soon after spring va-
cation," stated Professor Hollister.

Enforcement of the automobile e
ban at Amherst college is moret
strict than at the University, andt
the provisions of the Amherst bant
are in themselves more stringent
than the provisions of the Univer-t
sity rule, it is revealed in a letter'
from the Amherst dean receivedI
yesterday by W. B. Rea, assistant
to the dean of students.
The letter denied press reports oft
last week that a modification and1
partial relaxation of the ban in fa- 1
vor of senior students, was to be-
come effective at Amherst aftert
spring vacation. .
Tentative change in the Amherst
automobile ban, to become effec-i
tive after spring vacation, is no
more than an experiment to deter-I
mine the feasibility of eventual al-t
teration of the ruling, the letter t
states. Second semester seniors in
good standing, with an average1I
grade above 75, after receiving
permission from their parents, may

Broken Feed Line Forces Trial
Runs to be Discontinued.
(By Associated Press)
BEACH, Fla., March 18.-A broken
gasoline line today caused Kaye
Don, British contender for the
world's automobile speed record, to
postpone his test trials until to-
morrow, after he had made two
runs over the Ocean Speedway
course at an average speed of 168
miles per hour.
Don said repairs on his Silver
Bullet racer would be made to-
night and that he would resume
his trials at low tide late tomor-

enter into an agreement whereby
they will be permitted to drive au-
tomobiles for the period extending
from spring vacation to the close
of the school term, on the condi-
tion that they report to the dean
any student not especially author-
ized who is seen driving a senior
car. Such report is to be made
within 24 hours after the violation
is seen, and the students reported
as violating the ban are to be drop-
ped from the college
Out of about 90 men in the senior
class at Amherst, only about 20 are
to be given driving permission, and
at least 70 will not have the priv-
ilege, the letter to Mr. Rea says.
Other tenets of the regular Am-
herst ban are distinctly more strict
than the provisions of the ruling in
force at the University, according
to the letter. All students who vio-
late the ban are dropped from the
college for periodsvarying from
one semester to a full school year.
Strict enforcement of the ban i.
maintained in territory outside of
the college town within a ten-m
radius. Students are never per-
mitted to drive to or from any pub-
lic exhibitions, such as football
games, in which student organiza-
tions are represented.
Undergraduates who remain in'
the college town during the vaca-
tions are not permitted to drive,
cars even during the vacation pe-
riod, although there is a relaxation
of the ban at such times for stu-
dents who are away from school.
Students may not drive to school
from their homes at the beginning
of the school year, nor may they1
drive away from school to their
