Ann Arbor motorists do not purchase

rees Granted Here Last Year
t New Record, Survey Shows

During the last school year, 1938-
I, the' University granted more de-
'ees than in any previous year in
s history, a survey of statistics
ong this line reveals.
Last year's figures of 3,178 degrees
'anted was also the first one over
000 in the University's history.
.irther examination of these statis-
es (covering the last 25 years)
nids the low figures, 831, appearing
. 1918-19, the second war year. Af-
,r the war, degree grants became
eadily more numerous each year,
itil 1932, when they began a drop
hich lasted three years.
The number of degrees granted to
omen here steadily increased after
14, only to drop off in 1932, and
sume the upward trend in 1935.
ast year a peak number of 844 de-
ees were conferred on women by
e University. The war years seem -
1. to have no effect on the number
fwomen graduates.
The war, however, took a big toll
n male graduates, the number of
ese degrees dropping off from 1158
11916-17 to 518 in 1918-19. After.
ie war, the number of degrees
anted to men fluctuated somewhat
r a number of years, but even
ally swelled to a peak in 1932. The
" Pormnnr ntv,

next three years recorded a drop
in the figures, but a "revival" has
brought a new high of 2334 last year.
In general female graduates from
:he University have increased more
'teadily than the males, but the male
graduates have increased actually
more in numbers than the females.
Last year was a peak year in de-
;rees conferred for the engineering,
law, architecture, business adminis-
tration, forestry and conservation,
music and graduate schools. Last
year, for the first time, the graduate
school conferred more than 1000 de-
grees. The education school granted
its top number of degrees, 320, in
1926-27, with the number rather
steadily decreasing since that time.
The medical, pharmacy and dentis-
try schools boast their top figures
in 1929, 1917, and 1930 respectively.
Peak year in' the literary college was
1930, when 1061 degrees were grant-
Graduates of the literary college
have been more numerous than those
of any of the other schools in every
year except last year, when the
graduate school boasted 49 more
degrees than the former leader. The
College of Pharmacy has consistent-
ly granted the fewest degrees..
The statistics bureau of the Uni-
versity, located in the Rackham
Building, keeps accurate account of'
these yearly figures.

With two questions prepared on
their repertoire of debates for the
year, the Stump Speakers Debate
Squad, as members of Sigma Rho
Tau, honoiary engineering speech
society, are called, have already par-
ticipated in five contests, winning
three out tf the five and will still meet
teams from three schools before the
semester closes.
The negative team will travel for
the next two debates on March 6 and
April 19 to the University of Detroit
and Toledo, respectively, to argue on
the topic, "Resolved, That the Large
Eastern Railroads Should Adopt Die-
sel Powered Locomotives." For the
final debate of the semester, a team
will meet fellow Stump Speakers from
the Detroit Institute of Technology
May 2 in the Union.
A debate on the topic was won by
the affirmative Michigan team when
they met a Wayne University squad
here Feb. 13.
The question for debate the first
semester was "Resolved, That the 17
Year Period of Patent Protection
Should Be Shortened." On this ques-
tion four contests were held of which
two were victories and two losses for
the Michigan men, one victory and
one loss being on each side of the
The first two were lost by the team
to Wayne University and the Uni-
versity of Detroit Oct. 19 and Nov.
14, respectively. Victories on the
question were won from the Univer-
sity of Toledo and the Detroit Insti-
tute of Technology Dec. 5, and Jan. 5.
For their debates, the Stump Speak-
ers use a style of debating which
varies greatly from the usually ac-
cepted method. From three to six
men are sused on each team in such
a contest, and instead of allotting a
limited time to each speaker, the time
