E Michigan Fifteenth in Size
of Nation's Colleges.
Local pride which repeatedly
ranks the University of Michigan
among the first five universities of
the nation in respect to size has
been justifiably exploded. Figures
from the department of interior list
fourteen institutions of higher
learning as having larger student
bodies than Michigan. Columbia
leads the list with 36,000.
Five Big Ten institutions outrank
Michigan in s.ize: Chicago, Illinois,
Minnesota, Ohio State, and Wiscon-
sin, according to the figures.
Local feeling can at least be
soothed by the fact that the report
based on the department of in-
terior's figures spells the name of

Wolverines Win With Only 45
Seconds to Go; Display
By John Thomas
I Emmy Reid received a backhand

hushed the puck into the net with
less than 45 seconds of the last
period remaining. to be played, to
win, 3 to 2, from the fast skating
Western Ontario hockey team last
night in the Coliseum before 600
Western Ontario had tied the
score on a lucky break after half of
the final session had been played-
Marsden took the puck on a re-
bound off the wall and battedit
towards the goal. Michigan's right
defenseman, Chapman, in an effort
to clear the rubbei' from in front of
the goal accidentally bounced it off'
his stick into an unprotected cor-
ner of the net. Marsden was given
credit for the point.
Have Strict Defense.
Michigan opened up then and
took all kinds of shots but could,
not get the puck past goalie Bowen.
Both teams were going at top speed
in an effort to break the tie but
strick defenses kept all attempts at
bay until Crossman and Reid finally
broke through the Canadians' sec-
ond line and scored.
Frequent tumbles resulted from
the fast play of this third and the
crowd kept up a continuous cheer
throughout the twenty minutes of
skating. Chapman recovered after
making the unfortunate play to tie
the score for the visitors and was
the bulwark' of Michigan's defense
in the last few minutes.
Marsden opened the scoring two
minutes after the starting whistle,
by taking a pass from James and
cutting across in front of Tomp-
kins to pound the puck into a cor-
ner. Crossman came back a minute
later and evaded the defenses. He
hooked a pass to Reid to score
while outwitting the opposing goal-
After, this scoring spree both
teams settled down to regular hoc-
key, driving the puck towards the
opponent's goal until stopped and
then rushing back on defense. Arm-
strong, wingman for the visitors,
showed that he was the fast skater
that advance dope had marked him
to be, but Chapman and McCollum
kept his charges from resulting in
scores by rugged body checking.
This hard first period slowed him
down and he did not threaten
Michigan in either of the other two
Crossman took the rubber down
the ice through three Western On-
tario skaters until he was stopped
by the last defense man, McCallum.
David skated in fast to cover the
center ice in front of the Cana-
dians' goal, reached out and hooked
the puck from under the feet of
Crossman and McCallum. It was a
simple matter to push it into the
net and this goal put Michigan in;
Reid and Crossman formed Mich-
igan's best puck-passing combina-
tion again last night. These two
veterans were the key of the Wol-
verine offense and they did most
of the shooting. Their long shots
were raised off the ice and true to
the goal every time but consistent
saves by Bowen kept any of the
long shots from scoring.
I welcome this opportunity to
extend to you our best wishes for
a happy holiday season. To those
who will spend Christmas at
home may I say that the Uni-
versity is proud to be represented
by you and believes that it merits
your loyalty and esteem. We
hope you will carry to your com-
munities the greetings of your
University and something of the
ideals of the institution. To
those who will remain in Ann
Arbor, we suggest that you feel
that you are in a real sense at
home for from now on each loyal
student has two homes-a pater-
nal one and an "alma maternal"

The transition from college to
professional activity in the life of
the average young man is described
by Richard H. Harrington, '25E, De-
troit engineer, in the latest edition
of the Michigan Technic, out today.
"This transition from academic
atmosphere and college society to
professional atmosphere and urban1
society can only be understood,"
Harrington says, "by studying the
personal character and type of the
So he picks out the case of one
student who received his Bachelor1
of Science degree in chemical engi-
neering here in 1925, his Master's
degree, specializing in metallurgy
in 1926, and his doctor's degree in
metallurgy in 1929. This student
had also worked as a teaching as-
sistant in metallurgy from 1926 to
1929. The student had not belonged
to any fraternity but had been con-
nected with the baseball and track
teams and had entered into social
activities such as dancing and can-
Then came the transition. He had
not considered what he would do,
when out of college until he had
completed his examination for the
doctor's degree. Now, he received
offers from various firms and de-
cided to try one large Chicago elec-
trical firm. But here he found little
freedom, an army system of regu-
lation, dirty, and cupboard-like liv-
ing quarters. He naturally did not
accept the position.
Harrington then relates how the
young man got in touch with the
