Faculty Survey Discloses Split
On Question Of Honor System

Interviews with 50 members of the
College of Literature, Science and
Arts' faculty, ranging from heads
of departments to assistants in the
various courses indicate that the pro-
posal to substitute the honor system
in examinations for the present plan
splits the faculty into two opposing
and fairly evenly divided groups.
Twenty-two members are in favor
of the system, or at least "willing to
give it a trial," while 21 are opposed.
The other seven cast their votes with.
such strong reservations that it is
impossible to classify them as either
for or against the scheme.
Two questions were generally
asked. First: "Do you favor the use.
of the honor system in examinations
of the literary college?" If the re-
sponse was vague, as it frequently
happened to be, the secondques-
tion was: "Would you oppose the
plan if a majority of the students
in the college voted for it?" Under
such an arrangement quite a few who
did not display any great enthusiasm
over ihe project were not opposed.
They were counted among those "in
favor" in the above tabulation.
Experienceed Professors Opposed
There is one striking result in this
method of having each grade in the
faculty vote. The more experienced
men, the professors, assistants and
associate professors, incline to op-
pose the plan, while the younger

instructors vote two-to-one in its fa-
vor. Of the eight professors polled,
two approved the idea, four were
against it, and two others were will-
ing to try only under rather exact-
ing requirements. Among the assis-
tants and associate professors, 10 ap-
proved, 12 disapproved, and four
made reservations.
In regard to the instructors,
however, one can note an amazing
reversal in opinion. In this group
only five genuinely disapprove. Ten
are either strongly in favor or will-
ing to give the plan a chance for a
certain period, although a"number of
this group can see objections and
rather doubt if the honor system
would prove to be a success. One in-
structor would give the system a
chance only if it did not involve re-
porting upon other students.
Definite Opposition
It appeared that those against the
system were definite and positive in
their opposition. Their minds were
set, and if they did not all say so,
they at least gave the impression,
that their position was similar to
that of the professor who said, "'Ill
fight the idea to the last ditch. I'll
never support it." This was not true
of the group favoring the plan. They
seemed to be somewhat doubtful in
their position. A good many of them
actually thought it would not suc-

Civilization Of
Orient Is New
Study Program
To Be Offered By Literary
College In 1933-34 For
Field Of Concentration
A new concentration program in
Oriental Civilization will be included
in the literary college curriculum forj
1933-34, it was announced yesterday
by Dean John R. Effinger.
This proposal, made by Prof. J. R.:f
Hayden of the political science de-
partment, was passed at the regular
monthly meeting of the college fac-
ulty Jan. 9, but news of its passage
had not been hitherto released;
Departments which will carry
courses integrated into this program
are history, economics, sociology, po-
litical science, geography, and the
division of fine arts. Full details
of the courses will be carried in the
1933-34 college announcement.
"With the growing importance of
Oriental affairs," said Dean Effinger,
in commenting on the move, "it1
seems important that the University
should co-ordinate instruction relat-
ing to the Orient, so that any stu-
dent wishing to do so may avail him-t
self of a well-rounded study of far
eastern civilization."

rangements, are reminded that con-
tracts must be presented at the
'Ensian office on or 'before Jan. 25,
1933, according to John A. Carstens,
'33, business manager.
Ann Arbor photographers are faced
with the problem of taking care of
many last minute orders in time to
meet the 'Ensian deadline. For that
reason Carstens urged that group

Men Will Be Continued
During This Week
Local merchants will be solicited
for contributions to the Good Will
Fund during the continuance of the
drive this week it was announced by
the central committee in charge of
the campaign after a meeting yester-
day afternoon.
Solicitation of the business men
will be under the direction of Robert
Saltzstein, '34, memDer of the Union
underclass committee.
The Good Will Fund was still short
of the $2,000 mark yesterday with
few reports coming in to drive direc-
tors over the week-end.
Fraternity contributions have been
delayed pending action at chapter
meetings this week and it is now ex-
pected that many contributions of
these organizations will not be com-
plete until late this month.

A recommendation that the prob-
lem of undergraduate physical edu-
cation be solved by allowing the sev-
eral colleges on the campus to legis-

was approved by the University
Council ,at its meeting yesterday aft-
The report was presented by Dr.
Nathan Sinai, of the hygiene depart-
ment, who headed a special commit-
tee of the Council appointed to find
a solution to the problem.
The system now in force requires
that all freshmen be required to en-
roll in physical education courses un-
less excused by participating in ath-
letics or by membership in the R. 0.
T. C. Movements have been on foot
to extend the. requirement to include
sophomores as well as freshmen, and)
such a result may follow in some of
the colleges.
A report of the committee on mili-
tary affairs, given by Prof. William
H. Hobbs, presented a highly com-
plimentary account of the activities
of the military unit on the Michigan
campus. It was shown that while
University attendance as a whole has
undergone a steady decrease the past
few years, R. 0. T. C. registration'
has constantly grown, and, is the
largest this year it has ever been.
Since Maj. Basil D. Edwards has been
in command, the report stated, the.
Michigan unit has been advanced to
the highest rating of excellence .at
the headquarters in Washington.

Japan Accuses

War Office Declares That
Anericans Are Sending
Airplanes And Cars
TOKYO, Jan. 16.-(P)-A war of-
fice statement said today that China
is getting military supplies from
Americans, but a government spokes-
man denied that Japan is contemp-
lating any protest to Washington.
Reports of an impending protest,
published in Japanese newspapers,
were "ridiculous," it was said at the
foreign office. as Americans and
[other foreigners are, fully within
their rights in selling arms to the
Chinese and in instructing them.
"A supply of arms to China, espe-
cially to Chang Hsiao-Liang (com-
mander in north China) has been
made principally, by the United
States and Germany, Anercians sell-
ing the Chinese airplanes and motor
cars, mostly delivered in Shanghai,
and the Germans (elivering guns
and machine guns to Tientsin,", said
a statement issued by the war office.
Acting on instructions from Sec-
retary of State Stimson, United
States Ambassador Joseph C. Grew
issued the folloying statement:
"Regarding rumors published in
various newspapers in Japan to the
effect that understanding was
reached between the United States
and China for, supplying money,
arms and munitions to China, the
American embassy states emphatic-
ally that there is no understanding
or agreement of this nature between
the United States and China. There
is no basis whatever of rumors which
have been published, including a ru-
mor that the United States arranged
to loan the Nanking government
20,000,000 yuan dollars (nearly
$4,000,000) ."

Board Reports
To Council On
Water Question
Use Of Armory To House
Unemployed Single Men
Denied; Vote Bonds
In replying to a request for in-
formation made by the City Council
two weeks ago, the water commis-
sion, in a communication read to the
city legislative body at its regular
meeting last night, reported that the
matter of construction of mains on
the west side had been delayed pend-
ing an investigation on how the serv-
ice might best be improved. The
water board stated that it wished to
scure both a better quality of water
and a better pressure for the section
in question.
A request made at the last meet-
ing of the council that the Armory
be appropriated for the housing of
unemployed single men was answer-
ed negatively by the Armory board.
The board explained that the Fed-
eral government had already em-
ployed a large number of local men
on a Federal project, the new United
States prison near Milan, and had
provided articles of clothing for the
It was stated further that the
funds available did not provide suf-
ciently for the heating and lighting
of the building. It was indicated,
however, that a reconsideration
might be made when Philip Pack,
Washtenaw County representative in
the Legislature, returned to the city.
In lieu of securing the Armory as a
lodge, the city has rented the Wur-
ster Building on North Fourth Ave.
The Ann Arbor Ministerial Asso-
ciation informed the council that it
approved the pending investigation
of the city water supply, and asked
that action be taken on the matter,
both with respect to the elimination
of the present annual $100,000 waste
in the system and the employment of
men on improvements.
A $50,000 bond issue on the city
treasury, required by state law, was
approved by the council and awarded
to the Ann Arbor Agency. A petty
cash fund in the water department
was voted to handle payments,
amounting to less than one dollar.
The city clerk was authorized to dep-
utize the county sealer of weights
and measures so that he could en-
force the weight laws in the city.

Young Russian Violinist
Opens American Tour
In Hill Auditorium
In an individualistic interpretation
of musical pieces, several of which
were raised above the level of ordin-
ary technical exercises only by the'
musician's treatment of them, Na-
than Milstein, youthful Russian vio-
linist, last night appeared in Hill
Auditorium in his 1933 American
premiere performance.
The musician, who has spent the
previous portion of the season in a
tour of Europe, arrived in America
early this month to make his first
appearance here. He will play in
New York City soon.
Unable last night to comply with
repeated demands from the audience
for encores,, Mr. Milstein was forced
to terminate the applause byrap-
pearing without his violin. In ad-
dition to -his scheduled program, -he
played "Traumerei," by Schumann;

Technocracy Is Vague
To Him, Says Ameringer
Admitting that he knew nothing
about Technocracy, but that he was
on his way "up to the 'brain-belt,'
where Harvard, Yale, Princeton and
Columbia were, to learn about it,"
Mr. Oscar Ameringer, in a talk last
night entitled "Aspects of Techno-
cracy," promised to appear again
in Ann Arbor when he understood
,the subject.
Speaking in Natural Science Audi-
torium, Mr. Ameringer pointed out
that the Technocrats have attracted
a great deal of attention on ac-
count of their promise of $20,000 a
year salary for everyone, whereas the
Socialists cannot get many people
excited because all they have to of-
fer is $2,500 a year.

Film League May Give.
Student Loan Fund $200
Prospects that the Student Loan

were strong last night when members
of the League Board announced an
unusually large advance sale of
tickets for the German film "The
Cabinet of Dr. Calligari," to be
shown at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre Jan. 18, 19 and 20.
At the pre-showing of the film yes-
terday several shorts were also
shown, from which one of Charlie
Chaplin's films and a color feature
of flowers were selected.

The Michigan law provides that
owners of all cars bearing licenses
from other states exchange these
for Michigan licenses at the end of
90 days. Chief O'Brien said that sev-
eral hundred students and members
of the University faculty had in the
past violated this regulation by se-
curing license plates from their own
states on Jan. 1. He pointed out that
the cars were used in Michigan nine

cense plates.

received by Chief O'Brien reads as

A current suggestion that Alfred
E. Smith be chosen to succeed John
N. Garner as Speaker of the House1
was branded yesterday as "idle spec-
ulation" by Floyd E. McCaffree, of
the political science department.
The proposal was first made, sup-
posedly in half-jest, by Rep. Mary
T. Norton, of New Jersey. The New
York Sun printed a special article
in support of the suggestion, and last
Saturday the Detroit Free Press took
up the cry in an editorial entitled
"It's Conceivable."
In an interview yesterday Mr. Mc-
Caffree explained why he believes the
suggestion will not be acted upon.

come so strong that this will prob-
ably always be the case.
Mr. McCaffree further pointed out
that the position has come to neces-
sitate such an intricate knowledge of
House procedure that no one without
long experience as a representative
would be well equipped to fulfill it.
Further involved in the office, Mr.
McCaffree pointed out, is the degree
to which the incumbent must mingle
with the House leaders, constantly
guiding their programs. Since Mr.
Smith is not intimately acquainted
with many of. these leaders, he would
be certain to experience added difi-
culties in meeting the exigency.
