Registrars' Report Brings End
to Strongest Program in
Club's Record.


Culminating their strongest and
most successful program in 64 yeais
of existence, the Michigan School-
masters' club will terminate its
annual session here today with the
meeting of the Michigan Associa-
tion of Collegiate Registrars, to be
held subsequent to yesterday's ses-
sion of 24 high school professional
conferences. Chairmanship of the
gathering, beginning at 10 o'clock
this morning in room 2225. Angeil
Hall, will be handled by Prof. R.
M. Magee, assistant dean of De-
troit Teachers' College.
The period of conference will be
given over to an announcement of
} incoming results on the University
experiment b e i n g conducted.
through the registrar's ofhce con-
csenig4general intellien,£ce and
scholastic work of freshmen en-
tering the University each year.
According to Ira M. Smnith, Univer-
sity registrar, the survey is beirng
conducted with the purpose of
"ascertaining the kinds of influ-
ence exerted by previous high
school training on entering fresh-
mei nl."

the fifth annual Founder's Do:
bannuet. Loesch, who is nationa
known for his work in cleaning up
Chicago, went into detail in his dc'-
scription of the methods now em-
ployed by "gangs" and the mth--
ads of prevention and cure for
-uch "menaces."
"Chicago is worse only in do-
gree," the speaker stated. "Other
cities merely conceal their assort-
ment of crimes. Chicago gets pub-
licity. The crime resort in Chie-
go has been made possible by the
association and alliance of the
politician and the profession,!
crook. Remove this alliance and
our problem is solved."
Loesch Explains Methods.
Loesch went on to explain the
methods now employed by Chicao
ooliticians, to gain their ends. H.
divulged the extent of the corrup-
tion into which his crime comni;-
sion delved and which is now bei.na
dissolved. Terming the "illitea
voter" as one of the outstanding
menaces, Loesch explained te
methods by which Chicago polit-
cians heve secured control of oftF
-es by "fraudulent majorities." He
-als told of thie reciproi ty pr
ticed by men in office with thou 4,
member of "gang-dom" who aided
their successful campaigns.
"It is possible." he declared, "to
hire a professional killer for from
$25 to $1,000 in Chicago today, the
price depending on the importance
of the victim. And this type o{"
lawlessness is not carried on b,/
Americans of two or three genera-
tions, but by foreign born or those
of immediate foreign descent."
Race Problem is Crucial.
Loesch told of his contacts with
Al Capone, gang leader, and of tv
powers which Capone has bee?:
able to assume. He stated, in this
connection, that there had been
over 540 gang murders in the past
11 years in Chicago, and that 400
of these are still unsolved, because
"we have a population in Chicago
which defies the melting pot and
refuses to disclose or aid in the
prosecution of the criminal."
The race problem was called the
"basis of crime" by the speaker.
Ile declared that there is no city in
the United States in which the po-
lice force is not under some control
of political influence, and in which

University President Declares
Faculty Executives Given
Too Little Authority.
Favorable View of University's
New Administration Policy
Is Discussion Feature.
"It will readily be granted by
those familiar with our universities
that the organization methods of
most higher institutions of learnr
ing are out of date," said President
Alexander G Ruthven, speaking be-
fore the Schoolmasters' club at its
reception and dinner last night,
and most of the executives have too
little authority and responsibility.
"Most will agree," President
Ruthven went on, "that the faculty
has too little to do with appoint-
ments, promotions, or increases of
salary, within the departments, in
the selection of deans, and in the
initiation and execution of educa-
tional projects. The deans and
other executive officers have too
little freedom in administratioi,
having to refer a large portion of
their decisions to the president for-
Duties Are too General.
"The president is forced to ini-
tiate academic policies, to direct, to
a considerablee degree, the detail-
'ed work of various units and to pass
judgment on many matters which
should be definitely decided before
they reach him. Further, the trus-.
tees are expected to approve pro-
grams which are intricate enough
to require the attention of experts.
Owing' to 'an intadequa e distribu-
tion of functions, a great deal of
administrative work 'is done by
I temporary committees, the mem-
bers of which must usually . spend
hours of time in investigation be-
fore they can act intelligently."
President Ruthven showed that
the results of these conditions are
that faculties are hindered in
building up educational programs
and the executive officers are de-
layed in effecting improvements
and discharging their duties. Be-
-ides this, he stated that the trus-
tees are constantly in. danger of
making unwise decisions in dealing
'with problems with which they
cannot possibly be well acquainted,
'and the presidents seem doomed to
be destroyed by routine matters.
Innovations Unsuccessful.
"Attempts which have been made
to improve the method of admin-
stration now in vogue in our uni-
versities have not been conspicu-
ously successful," President Ruth-
'ven continued. "The general fea-
tures of the new plan recently ef-
fected at Michigan are that officers
are added who will assist the pres-
ident without'separating him from
the faculty, the vice-presidents and
other executive officers have been
given authority and responsibility
and will act as advisors to the
chief executive, the president will
be kept in direct contact with his
I staff through the deans, and the
faculties will be given more auth-
ority in the affairs of individual

"Specifically, the new method

that accounted for Syracuse's single
tally. Sulkowskib hit a triple for the
Orange cause, but his effort was,
wasted. The Syracuse keystone
combination of Hayman and
Walkov contributed some snappy
defensive work.
Syracuse men reached first and
second in the opening inning as a.
result of a pair of walks, but they
vwere left stranded. Tompkins walk-
ed with two down in Michigan's
half, but he was out stealing. Hud-
son greeted Balsley with a single to
second in the second frame. He ad-
vanced to second on Straub's sac-
rifice bunt and reached third when
Daniels grounded to Topol, but
Truskowski struck out. This was
Michigan's only serious bid for a

waive jury trials in capital cases
and in most felony cass, and that
the lack of convictions, which the
affirmative side 'attributed to the
jury's incompetense, was traceable
to the prosecutor's office and negli-
gence or non-functioning of t'l
police forces.
The negative side also contended
successfully that if judges were go-
ing to be be allowed to make law
by their decisions, juries should be
kept as a protection to the people:I
that in state suipremke courts d
cisions from jury trials were al-
nrmed in 77 per cent of the cases

cases appealed from trials in which
