combination to letter."
Even in 1921, there was opposi-

article appearing in the Detroit
Free Press, Dean Henry M. Bates
of the Law School made an elo-

Five faculty members, chosen
for their reputation as superior
instructors, attempted to answer
this question yesterday at a forum
in the Rackham Amphitheater.
PROF. CLAYTON HILL, of the
business administration school
opened the discussion, which cen-
