Men's Judiciary
Council Begins
Work This Fall
Takes Over Judicial Duties
And Control Of Elections
Of Defunct Men's Group
Inauguration of a seven-man
Menis Judiciary Council will this
years highlight advances irm student
self-government, with the Council
taking over the judicial and elec-
toral duties of the now-defunct
Men's Council, abolished last year
because it was considered "unwieldy
and ineffective."
The new Council was established in
the second of two shake-ups in stu-
dent government on the campus last
year. In the first the Men's Council,
composed of representatives from
leading organizations on the campus,
abolished election caucuses and took
unto itself the power of making nom-
inations for the various class posts,
iith positions to be filled by campus
vote from these nominations.
In the second, the old Council, con-
sidering itself "unwieldy and ineffec-
tiv " established the new board and
passed on all administrative angles
of its work to the staff of the Michi-
gan Union. The Judiciary Council
Will work in cooperation with the
League Judiciary Council, but has
wider powers, being empowered to
conduct a program for the student
body as a whole, whereas the League
'ouncil is more or less in the char-
acter of a judicial body to administer
wonen's regulations.
Carl E. Wheeler, '40E, is the new
president of the Council. Other mem-
bers will be Jim Halligan, '40F&C,
Jim Hammond, '40A, Bob Harring-
tOn, '40, Jack Hoover, '40, Harry
,Howell '40E, , and Doug Tracy,
'4E. In the appointment of these
men, the nominating committee ex-
pressed the hope that ".this Council
wvill perform its duties with an under-
standing and enthusiasm that will
c eate a large degree of confidence in
it and will lead to natural and sound
development into a wider field of
student government."
The Council will direct and consider
petitioning of candidates "seeking
political posts" and will carry out the
judicial functions of the old Men's
Council. The Union staff will con-
duct the elections, conduct mass meet-
ings during football season and di-
et the freshman-sophomore games
ainong other functions.
Autos Banned
By University
Ruling Becomes Effective
Monday,_:Sept. 25
University students will be prohibit-
ed from operating automobiles in the
iinity of Ann Arbor after 8 a.m.
Monday, Sept. 25, when the auto ban
becomes effective.
Exceptions from this rule, which is
rigidly enforced, may be granted sole-
ly by the Dean of Students' office.
Such exemptions will not be allowed
unless the committee deems the use
of a car essential to the securing of
the applicant's education.
Three classes of students are gen-
erally exempt from the auto ban.
These include students over 26 years
of age, partetime students receiving
credit for six hours or less per semes-
ter, and those with a faculty rating
of instructor or higher. The Univar-
sity emphasizes that even such ex-
emptions are not automatic, but are
granted only upon individual request.

Penalties for infraction of the auto
ban, while at the discretion of the
University, usually mean loss of aca-
demic credit for the first offense and
suspension from the University for
the second. These penalties are tdi-
rected not only at student drivers but
also at student passengers, unless
the car is driven by a member of the
passenger's immediate family.
In the case of students who wish
to drive to Ann Arbor from a distance
of more than 150 miles, such trans-
portation is allowed if any appreci-
able saving in cost is realized. Once
in Ann Arbor, however, the car must
be placed in dead storage and full
information filed immediately with
the Dean of Students' office.

Course Is Limited
150 Picked Students;

'B' AverageNecessary
With the inauguration of a tutorial
honors system modeled after the Ox-
ford plan last fall, the University
took a long step forward in the direc-
tion of progressive education.
Resembling the systems in effect
at Harvard University and Swarth-
more College, the plan is still in the
experimental stage, being limited to
a total enrollment of 150 picked stu-
dents, 30 of whom were selected last
fall from the sophomore class and
were ready to embark this year up-
on programs of academic concentra-
Michigan Is First
Michigan is the first state-sup-
ported institution to give the plan a
trial. Five years will elapse before
any steps are taken to enlarge the
plan or put it on a permanent basis.
The keynote of the plan is in-
dividual attention to the needs, abili-
ties and interests of every student.
The result, it is hoped, will be a more
thorough-going synthesis of subject
matter and knowledge.
Requirements for admittance to
the system during the five year ex-
perimental stage are stiff. Special
criteria include at least a "B" scho-
lastic average, personal interview
with the Board of Tutors, and ac-
ceptable qualifying examination in
English composition and one foreign
Program Is Divided
Half of the student's program con-
sists of regularly scheduled courses.
The remainder is devoted to an ex-
tensive program of assigned read-
ing and research administered by
the student's tutor, who is selected
from a special faculty staff. Each
tutor is relieved of about two-thirds
of his regular burden of teaching.
During his last two years of un-
dergraduate work, the student con-
centrates his scholastic interests
around a central theme, at the same
time endeavoring to extend his knowl-
edge in collateral fields. Weekly con-
ferences are scheduled for him with
the tutor who grades the student on
his accomplishment.
"A penetrating essay" upon any
subject selected after consultation
with his tutor is required of every
student during his senior year. The
merit of the essay is appraised by
members of the Board of Tutors and
faculty who are specialists in the
Comprehensive examinations, ad-
ministered at the end of the year, re-
place the traditional "package" sys-
tem of tests.

Excellent opportunity is afforded to
those students who are literarily or
journalistically bent in the five cam-
pus publications: The Michigan
Daily, Perspectives. Gargoyle, Michi-
ganensian and the Technic. All
freshmen who have attained a scho-,
lastic average of at least three C's
and one B during their first semes-
ter on campus are eligible to try out
for any of these during their second
The Daily, the largest of the five, is
published every morning except Mon-
day and University holidays during
the regular school year and Summer
Session. Perspectives, the campus
literary magazine, is issued four
times a year free to Daily subscribers.
The Technic, which is edited and
published by undergraduates in the
engineering college, appears monthly
and contains articles and illustrations
on new developments in the engineer-
ing field.
The Michiganensian, the official
yearbook of the University, is pub-

lished annually in the spring of the
year. The book is composed'and set
up entirely by staff members, and is
one of the few college annuals which
uses its own art work. Included in
the annual are individual pictures of
graduating seniors grouped accord-
ing to colleges; group pictures of fra-
ternities and sororities; a section
reviewing the year's athletics and
containing team and action pictures;
and candid shots of all interesting
campus events taken by staff photog-
In addition to the yearbook, the
'Ensian publishes the student direc-
tory, which contains names, ad-
dresses, telephone numbers and home
towns of all students, every fall and
at the beginning of the Summer
The Gargoyle is the campus humor
magazine. Appearing once each
month, this college humor magazin'e
has become famous and even notori-
ous for its quips and fun. Clever car-
toons, impossible people, and jokes
have made it a popular publication
