} Conflicting reactions met the an-
nouncement of the Northwestern-
Michigan football game on the
campus yesterday. Approval was
stamped on the new schedule by
the majority of the students, but
many expressed "sympathy" for
Coach Kipke and his 1932 gridiron
With Michigan State opening the
season, followed by Northwestern
and Ohio State, many students are
afraid for the team's chances, but
expressed the opinion that with
something to point for at the start
of the season, Michigan may easily
urprise the football fans with No-
' start of the season.
"Our new schedule is like playing
Notre Dame on three successive
:rweek-ends," one student said. ',Pure
suicide," "it's too hard," and "our
team will not have a veteran from
ackle to tackle," were answers to
the reporter's inquiries.
The largest majority is in hearty
favor of the Wildcat game. After

Gardner S. Williams, Ann Arbor
Resident, Former Professor
Funeral services were held at 2
o'clock yesterday afternoon for
Gardner S. Williams, one of the
leading hydraulic consulting engi-
neers in the country, at his home
at 905 Olivia Ave. Mr. Williams died
early Saturday morning following
a long illness.
He was born in Saginaw in 1866,
and graduated from the College of
Engineering in 1889. In 1899 he re-
ceived the degree of C.E. From 1904
to 1911 he was professor of Civil,
Hydraulic, and Sanitary Engineer-
ing in the engineering college, and
head of the department of civil en-
gineering. Since 1911 he has been
engaged as a private consultant
with, headquarters in Ann Arbor.
Mi'. Williams designed and built
the first dome dam in this country,
at Ithaca, N. Y., about 30 years ago.
The unique features involved in!
this type of design remained un-
used in any structure of importance
until adopted by the Department of
the Interior in the building of the
Coolidge dam across the'Gila river
near San Carlos, Ariz.
He was also a pioneer in the
building of multiple arch dams inj
this country, a type which has in
recent years been adopted in many
important structures. His last mul-
tiple arch structure was the Mag-
nitorsky on the Ural river in Russia,
one of the longest concrete dams in
the world. '

as the Trojans of the University of
Southern California crashed their

California's point-a-minute tri-
umph began to take form early in

There will be more unity and.

"the object of solicitude" in the
high school curriculum of the fu-

Yoakum in an article in the Edu-
cation School Bulletin for Decem-

In a large number of the sub-
jects now offered in high school,
"the rather shallow and fleeting
interests of youth are not held. or
forced to that more mature stage

the future, declares Dr. Yoakum. It
will teach every student "that self-
control is an acquired attainment,'
that 'fuzzy thinking' is a slovenly
habit, and that ideas are not easily'
"In the high school," he adds,

ence, literature, and art, and hu-

tice in the three great tools-math-
