Instructors Will Give Lecture
Covering Essential Points
in Courses.
Groups Limited to Twenty Say
W. W. Knox, Chairman of
In an attempt to boost the
grades of first year undergraduates
during the current semester the
Student Christian association has
added to its varied functions that
of sponsoring special tutoring lec-
tures for freshmen. The first classes
will be held this week.
Review lectures in French, Ger-
man, Spanish, history, geology, and
chemistry are being planned. In-
structors in these subjects have
been obtained and will prepare
talks that cover the essential points
of the work assigned in these
courses to date.
Groups Limited.
The groups, which have been
limited to 20 students, will meet at
7:30 o'clock on the evenings desig-
nated in the upper room at Lane
hall, except the history group
which will meet at 7 o'clock. The
schedule of lectures for this week
is as follows: French I on Tuesday,
German I and Spanish I on Thurs-
day, and history II on Saturday.
Hirsch Hootkins, of the Romance
Language department, will present
the French talk. He is also sched-
uled to give the lecture on Spanish.
Sydney Glazer has been obtained
to conduct the review in history.
Reservations Necessary.
Places at these lectures will be
at a premium according to W. W.
Knox, '32, chairman of the fres-
man committee of the Student
Christianrassociation. In view o
this he urges freshmen to call at
Lane hall sometime before thelec-
ture which they wish to attend
begins, and make reservations.
Realizing the great number of
freshmen that come to grief over
their studies merely through in-
ability to organize the material of
a course in preparation for an ex-
amination, the Student Christian
association is attempting a remedy
for the situation by providing men
that can present an easily under-
standable resume of the material
of a course for the benefit of fresh-
men who have fallen behind.

High School Debaters
to Open Second Series

The second debate of the pre-
liminary series in the Michigan
High School Debating league, to be

nounced yesterday in a circular
letter which included a complete
list of the instructions to the mem-
bers regarding the conduct of the
Thesquestion to be discussed,
"Resolved:: That national chain
grocery stores operating in the
state ;of Michigan are detrimental
to the people of the state," makes
it necessary for the affirmative to
entertain all debates in the pre-
liminary series to avoid the neces-
sity of the home team attacking
the independent home store.

Numerous Obstacles
SDuring Harvard Tn'
SPieces of the Harvard goal post
3alleged to be authentic by thei
possessors, came back to Ann A]
bor yesterday and Sunday after
s one of the most strenuous week
ends in the history of Michigan
football games. The goal post
were torn down immediately aft:
19,000 Michigan fans had heard tb
final gun proclaim a 6-3 victors
s over Harvard in the Cambridg
But the suffering of those wh
mixed in the mauling, tearin
fight for possessign of the un
rights was nothing to the agonr
of about 100 Michigan fans whc
journeyed to the East via unor-
thodox ways and means in order tc
catch a glimpse of what will prob-
ably go down in history as the
closest football game and the
hardest fought struggle in inter-
sectional warfare. Here are some,
of the stories of the marytrs.
One pair of University suppor-
ters bummed all the way, getting
more than 30 rides in all anc
spending about 75 hours on the
road. They returned late last
night after a sleepless week-end
Another outfit rode on the back
end of a truck for 500 miles in the
wintry weather of Thursday night
in order to see the game.
Bus occupants were given one of
the most stirring ovations in his-
tory when they were escorted
through Detroit, Schenectady, Al-
bany, Cambridge, and down-town
Boston by members of the police
force of the respective cities. The
Boston trip was the huge success
of the entire week-end, and 40
Michigan fans will never forget
tearing down the Hub's main
streets at 5 o'clock in the after-
noon preceded by two motor cops
whose sirens shrieked the thick
traffic aside while Michigan yells
rent the air.
Adelphi Will Debate
Grid Game With Green
"Resolved: that Adelphi should
play a charity football game on
Thanksgiving with Gov. Green's
team of Lansing" will be the subject
of an open debate at Adelphi House
of Representatives at 7:30 o'clock

Miss Earhart, who was in Wash-
ington today, denied she and Pal-

She and Palmer were at the sum-

ment," he added, "is marked by ex -
reme caution which presages a
more dependable advance, f o r
holding the forces working for the
upturn in check until they are
strong enough to support a sus-
tained forward movement will add
to its permanency."

View of World Today
An optimisstic view of world con-
ditions since the signing of the
Armistice in 1918 was taken yester-
day by Prof. Preston W. Slosson, of
the history departn;.nt, is an inter-
"Twelve turbulent years since the
armistice have witnessed considera-
ble progress in the cause of peace,
he said. Though there have been
m a n y civil wars and revolutions
there has been no major interna-
tional conflict,nand at least a dozen
times wars have been narrowly,
averted by diplomatic action. The
growing prestige of the League of
Nations, strengthened by the estab-
lishment of the Court of Interna-
tional Justice, the Locarno pact, the
Kellogg peace pact and the tempo-
rary adjustments of reparations
and war debts, have together suf-
ficed to keep the peace.
"There are, however, still some
perils, the most serious of which
seem to be, first, the naval tension
between France and Italy; second,
the increased anti-foreign spirit in
Germany shown by the recent elec-
ti'on; and third, the general hostile
attitude of Soviet Russia to 'capital-
istic' Europe. But none of these
danger spots threaten an imminent
conflict. I do not look for any big
wars within a decade," he stated.
