Hockey Teat Drops Second Tilt
of Ice Season to Marrons.
by 3-2 Count.%
Michigan Leads Twice in Battle
Only to Succumb as Result
of Rebound Shot.
- By John Thomas
A last minute goal by Alf Stevens
set Michigan's hockey team down
in defeat in the first regular match
of the season last night in the Coli-
seum, 3 to 2. Chatham's star wing-
man took a rebound off Tompkins
stick and smashed into the net With
the winning goal. More than 800
hiockey fans watched the Maroons,
comefrom behind to tie the score
and then win the remarkably fast
Michigan stepped out into an
early lead when Reid skated down
the ice and split the .defense. He
quickly drew to one side taking the
goalie with him and then hooked
a corner shot across the line. Chat-
ham resorted to long shots in an
effort to tie the score but Tompkins
kept the puck out of danger until
Riseborough scored. The Michigan
Captain 'had made a save but did
not have time to makeshaplay on
the puck and he just shoved it
aay. Riseborough got away from
the man who was checking him and
pushed the puck into the net from
directly in front of the goal. -
Crossman scored in this period{
with one of the prettiest exhibi-
tions of stick-handling seen on the
ice last night. He went through
four Maroon puckmen and then
qut-witted the goalie to put Michi-i
ghn ahead again. Early in the sec-1
and period, Riseborough made a
little golf shot that fooled Tomp-I
kins. It slid low into the net after1

Studehts on Strike
as Wyoming Educator
Offends by Remarks
LARAMIE, Wyo., Dec. 8.-(P)-
Campus leaders of the University
of Wyoming late tody claimed
three-fourths of the 'student body
of 1,200 had refused to attend class-
es because of remarks of President
A. G. Crane, concerning "petting
and drinking" at campus social
President Crane refused to apolo-
gize, as requested by student lead-
ers, and issued an order barring all
"strikers" from the campus. Mr.
Crane said he was responsible only
to the board of. trustees, whose
president, Will Linn, was en route
here tonight from his home inTor-
Student leaders said President
Crane, during an intermission of
a college dance last Friday, visited
several parked motor cars in which
co-eds and their escorts were sit-
ting, opened the car doors and re-

late in the week. It will recommend

to be discussed and possibly the

Soon after today's message was

both House and Senate to establish

Synthetic Journalism
Probably one of the most- despicable examples of yellow
journalism occurred yesterday in connection with the Sopho-
more cabaret, given last week-end at the League for the benefit
of that organization. We are accustomed to the perennial charge
of drunkenness, rum probes, student liquor, and he like, and
seeing it blazoned forth on the front pages of. th" sensational
press. Now again, rumor forms the basis of another sensational
spectacular story for the Michigan taxpayers. Once more, the
subterfuge of a denial of an absurd fact has been made to repre-
sent the supposed fact as a substantial statement.
Had, the charges been founded, the authorities in question,
who conducted the affair in an excellent manner, should, of
course, have seen to it that the situation was remedied at once.
Yet today they are being made to bear the burden of malicious
rumor, allegations, trumped up charges, and a story created by
the denial of these rumors. It is clearly a case of deceiving the
taxpayers of the State of Michigan, as well as the parents of
students, as to the true state of affairs at this institution.
It has been alleged among other things that an investigation
was planned. By whom? On what basis? Or was perhaps the
charge brought with that in view? It was rumored that this
year parents of girls taking part in the affair objected to so-
called taxi-dancing. What parent would not object after, not
before, the publication of such rumors? Furthermore, taxi-danc-
ing, as used in present day vocabularies, does not in the least
apply to what the young ladies at the League were doing Friday
and Saturday nights. Nor, according to statements of women
who took part in the affair, was there any protest forthcoming
at all from the parents. According to figures supplied by those
in charge of the function, only two men had-to be removedfrom
the dance floor.
The whole affair has taken on importance wholly out of pro-
portion with the actual conditions. Perhaps the object of the
charges was to bring about an investigation, which it was
thought could not be avoided after the glare of the publicity
spotlight had been focused on it. Perhaps rumor provided a
better basis for allegation than did the facts. Perhaps those
spreading the rumors did not even attend the cabaret; we did.
There were, to be sure, "happy" people in attendance, but of hip
flasls, heavy drinking, irate parents, etc., there was no evidence.
However, we would welcome an investigation if only to
prove that the scurrilous statements are unfounded. The repu-
tation of the University has been made the object of a most
deplorable type of journalism. The facts, as usual, present an
entirely different case from that of rumor, allegation, and sensa-
tionalism. As a state institution, the taxpasrhave a right to
know that the state of affairs here has been misrepresented.

Campus Leaders Give Opinions
on 'Office of Dean'
Dean C. 0. Edmonson of Indi-
ana, Forum Leader to Arrive
Here Tomorrow.
By Carl S. Forsythe.
Faculty members refused last
night to comment on the second
Union forum which will be held at
8 o'clock tomorrow night in the
main assembly hall at the Union on
the "Office of the Dean of Stu-
dents." Campus leaders, however,
were more willing to express them-
selves, and gave various opinions
concerning the' affair which'is ex-.
pected to draw a crowd of more
than 1,000 students.
While interest ran high as the
result of the refusal yesterday of
Joseph A. Burs'py, dean of students,
to take part in the discussion be-
cause of a dinner engagement, the
committee in charge'of the affair
at the Union went forward .with its
Dean C. o. Edmonson, den of
students at the University of In-
diana, will arrive in Ann Arbor
Thursday to'lead the discussion.
David M. Nichol, 32, president of
the senior class made the follow-
ing statement to The Daily:
"A forum like the proposed Union
discussion should be objectional to
no one. Such a meeting would
certainly do away with a number
of prejudices and misconceptions.
Any attempt to promote better re-
lationships between the student
body and the office of the dean of
students should be welcomed by
"Thomas M. Cooley;032; managin
editor of Gargoyle took the oppo-
site stand.
"I think the forum is a silly busi-
ness and one which will probably
come to no definite or useful con-
Edward J. McCormick, '32, presi-
dent of the Student Council, prais-
ed the Union for its forums.
"The Michigan Union is to be
complimented for its services of
open forums. The student body
should be vitally interested in the
second subject, 'Office of the Dean
of Students.' It is to be regretted
that Dean Bursley will be unable
to attend since his presence would
bring the discussion within the in-
terests of the entire student body.
"Although nothing definite can be
accomplished by such a discussion,
perhaps the students will be
brought to realize that this Uni-
versity is for them and that each
institution of the University is pro-
vided only as the students require
it." .,

Effinger Announces First Move
in Arranging Prerequisites
for New Curriculum.
The first step in outlining courses
which will be made prerequisites
for programs of concentration oper-
ative under the new curriculum
plan was announced yesterday by
Dean John R. Effinger, of the lit-
erary college.
Under the new curriculum plan,
made effective last September, un-
derclassmen are required to enter
upon a general program, the com-
pletion of which, if certain require-
ments are met, automatically per-
mits them to enter upon a program
of concentration as upperclassmen.
They plan is not applicable to stu-
dents of the present junior and
senior classes, however.
The new plan, in its original form,
did not provide for prerequisites for
degree, or concentration, programs.
Students specializing in group sub-
jects are required to take 60 hours
of work in that group, while for
single subjects, such as history, de-
partmental instruction must in-
clude 30 hours of Work.
Prerequisites have been outlined
for each of three groups by com-
mittees, Dean Effinger stated. These
three groups are languages and lit-
erature, of which Prof. 0. J. Camp-
bell, of the English department, is
chairman; mathematics and sci-
ence, the committee chairmanship
of which is ufider Prof. J. F. Shep-
ard, of the psychology department,
and the social sciences, with Prof.
J. B. Reeves, of the political science'
department, as chairman.
A definite standard to permit
specialization will be set up by the
committeesarepresenting each
group,' it was said.
Prerequisite courses for single
subjects will be outlined early next
year, Dean Effinger added..
Juniors Are Initiated
Into Honorary Society
Ten members of the class of '33+
were initiated into Sphinx, junior
literary honorary society, last night
at the annual fall initiation.
The new members are Louis Co-
lombo, Roderick Cox, William El-
liot, Frank Gilbreth, Frank Ken-
nedy, Edward McKay, Robert Pe-
tr i e, Duncan Shepherd, Richard
Stratemeier, and Estil Tessmer.

Crime Culmination of Previous
Attack; Revolver Stolen
From Brother.
Paul Boyke\ 337 Beaks ,street,'
shot and seriously injured his wife
and killed himself by a s h o t
through the head early yesterday
morning in the kitchen of his hoie.
The shooting came as the climax
of a quarrel which had resulted in
a previous attack upon Mrs. Boyke
about two weeks ago for which
Boyke was cited to appear in cir-
cuit court soon.
* Tle revolver:was.stolen by Boyke
from a brother who told police
Monday that the weapon was mis-
sing and that his brother had not
been seen for some time, and, re-
quested an .investigation. The 'po-
lice searched the home but were
not taken to a small closet where
Boyke had hidden. As Mrs. Boyke
entered the kitchen to prepare
breakfast, Boyke emerged from the
closet and fired at her. The bullet
struck her shoulder, and she ran
for the stairway. As she reached
the head of- the stairs, he fired
again, this time hitting her in the,
hip. Evidently believing, he had
killed her, Boyke turned the gun on
himself, killing himself instantly.
The enti5 freshmen class will
hold a meeting' at 4:15 today in the
Natural Science auditorium to dis-
cuss policies for the remainder of
' the year.
According to William Shepherd,
president, class appointments will
be announced at this time.

"Big Bill" Tilden, professional
tennis champion of the world, who'
arrived in Ann Arbor yesterday
morning, brought with him an idea
concerning college athletics which,
though admittedly not original, de-
serves notice.
It concerns the relative import-
ance of individual and team activ-
ities in the athletic world. Tennis
and golf are the major sports of
the world-not football and base-
ball; and from an individual view-
point, they should be learned before{
the student goes into any otherI
sport, according to Tilden.
"Very few boys or girls in high
school or men and women in col-

sult that the body goes soft and,
in many cases, serious physical de-,
terioration sets in in early middle
The conservatism of such insti-
tutions as Harvard, Yale, Prince-
ton, Pennsylvania and other schools
has resulted in the defeat of the
attempt to get equal .recognition
for individual sports with team
games. On the other hand-the
wider vision and more progressive
attitude of many of the Big Ten
colleges has broken down the bar-
rier of tradition; and these insti-
tutions award the major letter to
tennis teams on a par with foot-
ball, basketball, and b a s e b a 11
