By George A. Stauter
The Board of Regents yester-
day approved a revision in the
accrediting system of the Uni-
versity which, proponents of the
plan believe, will provide a means

of unified contact between the
University and educational insti-
tutions of the state and at the
same time enable the University
to exercise constructive leader-
ship in the state's educational
Along with this action, the Re-
gents gave their approval to the
February list of graauates, approx-
imately 190 in six schools and col-
leges. Of this ,total, the Graduate
School had 95, almost twice the
number, 50, graduated from the
Literary College. The number of
other graduates were: College of
Engineering, 32; School of Forestry
and Conservation, 6; the School of
Music, 4; School of Dentistry, 2;
School of Architecture, 1. In addi--
tion, 26 teacher's certificates were
granted and approved.
Approve Tree Planting.
Approval of the revised accredit-
ing system was the principal item
to come before the Regents. They
gave their assent to a number of
other matters, however, chief of

Under the new accrediting sys-
tem, the revision of which was pro-
posed by the committee on educa-
tional policies, the University com-

They are replaced by one central
committee, the committee on co-
operation with educational institu-
tions, and two subcommittees, the
committee on relations with sec-
ondary schools and the committee
on relations with institutions of
higher education. The two com-
mittees discontinued had previous-
ly directed the work of accrediting
and inspecting schools.
Division Made Bureau.
The personnel of the central
committee will be composed of the
vice-president of the University in
charge of educational investiga-
_tions; the registrar of the Univer-
sity; the state superintendent o
public instruction or his designated
representative; the chairmen of
the subcommittees; and the four
members appointed by the Presi-
dent for terms of three years (ex-
cept initial appointments, which
will be two for two years and two
for three years). The chairman of
the central committee will be elect-
ed annually by the members.
The division of University inspec-
tion of high schools wil be retained
but renamed the bureau of co-oper-
ation with educational institutions.
Its staff and facilities will be made
available to the central and sub-I
committees, and the director of the
bureau will serve as ex officio secre-
tary of the three committees.
The value of the plan, it is un-
derstood, lies in the fact that the
central committee will bring about
co-operation with all educational
institutions of the state in the de-

Relates Incidents to Illustrate
His Care for Authenticity,
Attention to Detail.
Countess Alexandra Tolstoy, In
the lecture she delivered before aj
capacity audience yesterday after-j
noon in Natural Science auditori-
um, explained that the fundamen-
tal precept followed by her father,
Leo Tolstoy, in writing was that
"The aim of all art is to transmit
to the people the best and loftiest
thoughts of mankind."
A series of incidents was related
by Countess Tolstoy to illustrate the
meticulous ,ae for authenticity
and minute attention to detail
which were exercised by her father
in the preparation of everything lie
wrote. Frequent and careful revis-
ion of everything that came from his
pen was his rule.
Axiomatic with Tolstoy, t h e
Couitess declared, were his beliefs
to the effect that One must dis-
miss forever the idea of writing
anything well at the first attempt,"
and "No addition can so well im-
prove a manuscript as those made
with the blue pencil of correction."
According to Countess Tolstoy
her father enjoyed both the Amer-
ican literature that was written in
his lifetime and that which had
been written before. The Countess
doubted, however, if very much of
the literature that is being written
throughout the world today would
be very favorably viewed by Tolstoy.

President Says Education Budget
Should Not Be Cut During
Present Conditions.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 26- (P) -
President hoover has placed his
emphatic support at the disposal of
educational groups fighting curtail-
ment of school funds during the
present period of economic distress.
The President expressed his views
in a brief letter to the department
of superintendence of the National
Education association at the close
of its convention here Thursday.
"However, the national economy
may vary on whatever fiscal ad-
justments may need to be made,"
he wrote, "the very first obligation
upon the national resources is the
undiminished financial support of
the public schools. We cannot af-
ord to lose any ground. That is
neither economy nor good govern.-

To Be Teams' Second Encounter;
Two Men Will Make Their
Last Road Trip.
Wolverines Will Fight Hard to
Equal Last Season's Mark
of 8 Victories.
fy Sheldon C. Fullerton
For the last time this season
Michigan's basketball quintet will
take the road, when it meets Iowa's
lowly Hawkeyes at Iowa City to-
night, in the second game of the
year between the two teams.
Fighting to equal its record of
last season, when it won eight vic-
toris against four defeats, the
Wolverine basketeers will be forced
to overthrow the Hawkeyes tonight
to realize their ambitions.
Since the two reverses suffered
last week-end at the hands of Illi-
nois and Northwestern , brought
their total games lost to four, the
Maize and Blue cagers will have to
down the Iowans, and then return
to Ann Arbor to gain victories over
Wisconsin and Ohio State in order
to remain near the top of the Con-
Iowa May Be Better.
Iowa may be a different proposi-
tion tonight than they were at Ann
Arbor just after the start of the
second semester. For half of the
first period in that game the Hawk-
eyes held the Wolverines on even
terms, but a swift and accurate
assault on the basket by the Maize
and Blue sharp-shooters sent the
score soaring in their favor. The
final outcome of that game was a
40-22 decision for the Michigan
Norm Daniels ani hank Weiss,
two of the sturdy veterans of Wolv-
erine teams for the past three
seasons, will-be playing theii last
road games for Michigan against
the Iowans. Daniels will be watched
with considerable interest, as his
showing tonight at Iowa City may
determine to a large extent just
how large his chances of landing
the Western Conference scoring
leadership really are.
Daniels at Forward.
Daniels will start in his regular
berth at forward along with Whitey
Eveland. The remainder of the
Michigan lineup will also remain
intact, with Garner jumping center,
and Weiss and Williamson compris-
ing the defense duo. Wilamson
had also had a great season from
a scoring viewpoint, his point total
for the year far exceeding his mark
of last season.
Iowa's attack will be moulded
around Howard Moffitt, sensational]
sophomore scoring star. Moffitt was
stopped dead by Williamson in the
first Iowa clash, and if the Wolv-
erine guard can perform the trick
again a large part of the Hawkeye
threat will have been removed.
Bennett, at center, is another
Iowan that will bear watching.

Confronted with a threat by the
Japanese to bottle up Kiangwan,
the Chinese made a quick short
thrust in the darkness of early Sat-
urday and took Miaochangchen,
northwest of the bitterly contested
Kiangwan. They held on to Kiang-
wan, too.
Shortly before daylight,sChinese
batteries within Chapei started a
heavy shelling ,of the Japanese po-
sitions. The Japanese guns re-
sponded but they did not send over
nearly as many shells as were com-
ing at them from the enemy lines.
Further to the north, however,
the Japanese were more active. At

The Japanese forces here soon will
be the largest foreign army ever to

News asserted.
Commenting on the widespread
report that heavy reinforcements
were nearby, an official Japanese
spokesman said it would be "two or
three days before they arrived."
The Japanese promised a big of-

tactics on Kiangwan, Chapei andt

Michigan scored its lone goal
in the middle of the first period,
but goalie Tompson made several
sensational stops to push asi4e
34 shots while Tompkins was
called on to save only 16.
The Wolverines kept up a barrage
of shots in the first two periods,
keeping the visitors on the defen-
sive most of the time. Reid and
Crossman worked their clever pass-
ing attack to the utmost in order
to enlarge their score, but were kept
from tallying by the steady def e-
sive work of Tompson, who was
easily the outstanding player.

mediately before the match. Ted
Chapman played the best defensive
game of his career and made up in
part for the absence of the season-
ed Williams. Jeff Porte also gave a
brilliant exhibition of body check-
ing, but didn't make up for the loss
of Williams.
Michigan passed well and broke
into the danger zone many times,
but could not score. David's goal
climaxed a long series of dashes
down the ice to Marquette's goal,
but Michigan could not score again
although out-maneuvering the d-
fense practically at will.
In the second period Tompson
stopped several Michigan shots by
stretching out on the ice. Crossman
and Reid worked the puck through
the defense and' Reid lofted it In
order to get it over the out-stretch*,
ed form of Tompson, but the disI
hit the iron bar on top of the cage
and rolled over. This was Mich-
igan's only good chance to score
again in the whole game as Tomp-
son gave one of the most brilliant
demonstrations o f goal-tending
seen on the Coliseum ice in several
years. He is the only newcomer on
the Marquette team.
Michigan Line Holds.
In the third session Marquette
started a series of drives at the
Wolverine cage to score just once
in an effort to tie the score. The
little-substituted front line of Reid,
Crossman and David were tiring
quickly but Chapman and Porte

carried the brunt of the attacks
and Tompkins stopped 10 shots a-
Marquette used eight spares to
Michigan's two and wore down the
Wolverines in the later stages of
the contest.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 26.-(1P)-In
an effort to plug loopholes in fed-
eral criminal procedure and to close
breaches in the bankruptcy laws,
President Hoover anounced today
he would submit a new special mes-
sage to Congress early next week.
The document--long awaited as
his special law enforcement mes-
sage-will contain a long list of
hoped-for reforms, aimed princi-
pally at creating deterrents to
crime through speeding criminal
trials and appeals and at the sav-
ing of millions now lost by both
bankrupts and creditors.
The President today cited orally
to newspapermnen some of the

and others had escaped justice
