On Automobiles
Interpretation Of Rulings
Prohibiting Autos Given
By W. B. Rea
Outlines Regulations

First Official Picture From Ethiopian Front


Must Make Applications In
Office Of The Dean Of
Announcement of an immediate
tightening of the auto ban was made
yesterday by W. B. Rea, assistant to
the Dean of Students, in a statement
interpreting the regulations for the
1935-36 school year.
The basis for the auto ban is found
in a ruling of the Board of Regents:
"No student . in attendance at the
University from and after the be-
ginning of the first semester of the
University year 1927-28 shall operate
any motor vehicle. In exceptional
and extraordinary cases in the dis-
cretion of the Dean of Students this
ruling may be relaxed."
Dean Rea's analysis of the automo-
bile situation for the current year lists
the following outstanding issues:
Regulations Outlined
1. The automobile regulation gov-
erns the use as well as the operation
of a car; consequently, it is not per-
missible for a student to use his car,
or a family-owned car, for social, per-
sonal or any other purposes when the
car is driven by anyone who is not a
member of his immediate family.
2. A student receiving permission to
use an automobile must adhere strict-'
ly to the terms of his permit. Before
any driving is done, student permit
tags must be attached to the state+
license plates in such a manner as to
insure easy visibility. Any act of,
driving without permission from this
office or with permit tags unat-
tached will e considered a violation
of this ruling and will be disciplined
accordingly. -

Establish New
Committee To
Help Freshmen
First Year Men To Get
Aid In College English;
Booklet Prepared
In the belief that many freshmen
find difficulty in bridging the gap be-
tween their training in English and
what is expected of them in their
University course, the Michigan Com-
mittee on the Articulation of High
School and College English has been
formed to smooth the transition.
"The program of this committee,
declared Prof. Clarence D. Thorpe of
the English department, a member,
"covers an interpretation of the Uni-
versity of Michigan English stand-
ards. We feel there has not been in
the past a clear enough understand-
ing on the part of high schools and
the University of the aim and stand-
ards held by the University."
"Preparation for College English"
is the title of a booklet prepared by
the committee ms summer and sent
to all high schools in Michigan and
other states who have alumni study-
ing at Ann Arbor. Professor Thorpe,
Prof. Erich A. Walter, and Prof. Earl
L. Griggs, all of the English de-
partment, worked with Michigan
public school educators in the prep-
aration of the booklet. All three are
members of the committee.
The booklet contains 12 typical
freshman themes, with analysis and
criticism by the instructors, together
with a list of books desirable for the
entering freshmen to have read, and
an example of the calibre of work
expected of the first-year student
at the end of his English course.
A consultation service, prepared to
answer all the questions of high
school English teachers whose schools
have sent the most students to Mich-
igan has also been established by
the committee, with Bert E. Booth of
the English department as consultant.
Sixty schools now make use of this
service, but with improved economic
conditions it is expected to be broad-
ened, Professor Thorpe explained.

campus again this fall with a ven-

low temperatures, and is about 30

reluctance to shed comfortable sum-
mer clothes in favor of the tweeds
and heather socks that ordinarily are
worn in the fall, that accounts for
the great number of colds evidenced
about campus by red noses and lec-
tures interrupted by impolite coughs
and sneezes, Dr. McGarvey said. '
There are six cases of pneumonia
in the University infirmary at the
present writing, and all were con-
tracted by students who were either
improperly clothed, or who neglected
to regulate the temperatures of their
sleeping quarters.
Dr. McGarvey issued a warning to
those who want to keep well away
from colds and the flu, both of which
have possible dangerous following
complications, first, to keep the tem-
perature of their sleeping rooms about
62 degrees, and second, to avoid
strenuous exercise. Another point
well worth remembering is to wear
fall clothes in view of the fact that
fall is here, welcome or not, and that
there's always a possibility of con-
tracting pneumonia.
If a prediction can be made so early
in the school year, there's. a good
chance that the University's high of
last year for visits to the Health Ser-
vice, which ran over 100,000, will be
surpassed this fiscal year. The in-
crease in hospital cases this year is
over 30 per cent more than the fall
of 1934.

Even A Professor
Can Learn From
An Intelligent Dog
Who said that dogs were dumb
animals? Nothing could be further
from the truth, if you judge by the
actions of a certain police pup who
was in attendance at an interesting
history lecture yesterday - one of
those peppy 11 o'clocks.
The canine with the intellectual
curiosity entered the lecture room
promptly at 11:07 a.m. and lay down
for a sound nap. He stirred not a
muscle while the other students were
alternately rolling in the aisles and
jotting down copious notes. As the

tendency to talk overtime. evinced

the pup, wise beyond his years, slow-
ly arose and walked across the front
of the room to the door, yawning in-
dustriously the while. The professor,
touched by this expression of canine
nonchalance, took it well, and dis-
missed the class with profuse apol-

with enthusiasm, that "man's best
