Must Register Rooms
Landladies of the city who,
( have rooms to rent to men stu-
dents of the University for the
next year, must register their
rooms with the office of the
Dean of Students if they desire
any cooperation from the dean
in the matter of recommenda-
tion. The system to be used this
year which is similar to that used
last year, will do away with the
house to house canvass as was
the old custom, and will in-
volve the necessity of personal-
ly placing the room to be list-
ed. This may be done by tele-
phoning Dr. Fred B. Wahr, As-
sistant Dean of Students from1
whom the announcement of the
change is forthcoming.
The listing of the rooms ought
to be complete at least two weeks
prior to the beginning of the
school year so that adequate lists
may be prepared in the office
of thec dean of students for use
by University men. Dr. Fred B.
Walhr, in commenting upon the
rooming situation and the new
plan of proceedure, expressed I
the belief that there will be no
( shortage of rooms this fall.
Wier Pleases
Audience WithI
Cello Recital
Before a good sized audience Prof.
M. C. Wier gave a novel but delightful
'cello lecture-recital last night in the
auditorium of University hall. Despite
the uncomfortable warmth of the eve-
ning Professor Wier kept his audience
interested and the hour's program was]
finished before most had realized that
the time had passed.
Professor Wier opened his enter-
tainment with a brief talk on the his-
tory of the 'cello. The 'cello is said
to be a descendant of the viola, one of
the older stringed instruments. Pro-
fessor Wier displayed a "viola de
gamba" which he obtained from the
museum of musical instruments in
b iill auditorium and pointed out the
points of difference between that in
Itrument and the modern 'cello.
Professor Wier had two 'cellos of
his own which he described. One was
an old instrument made in 1670 an*
the other a modern product of 1923
lie explained that an old instrument
is much easier to play and told how
it was valuable for more than senti-
'mental reasons. The things most de
sired in a 'cello, according to Profes-
sor Wier, are evenness of tone and
tone quality.
After his talk on the instruments
he gave a short program. He played
the first number on the "viola -d
gamba" and then repeated, on his owr
instrument to illustrate the difference
between the two instruments. He then
played a selection on his newest
'cello to show how that differed from
his old one. The selections were
,played in a charming manner, th
'last number on the program being es-
pecially pleasing.
An important change in require-

ments for teacher's certificates will go

fifteen hours necessary for a certifi-

To Report For
Fall Football
Varsity footbal practice will offic-
5laly begin on Sept. 15. Between 50
and 60 candidates are expected to re-

It is known that with Captain Steg-
er there will be Rid Babcock, Mearle
Baker, Robert Brown, Charles Grube
Harry Hawkins, William Burns, Walt-
er Kunow, Philip Marion and Jim Mil-
ler on the list who will report early.
In addition to these Varsity men
there will be a formidable list of
players made up of Harold Steele:
Howell White, Ferdinand Rockwell, E
R. Slaughter. ,
Henry Ferenz, Lowell Palmer, Fred-
erick Parker and John Witherspoon
were also on the Varsity squad las

Missing from the ranks of last year',
championship team will be the names
of eight regulars. Four of these eight
were athletls of outstanding nation-
.al reputation. Kipke and Blott were
chosen on All-American teams, Uter-
'itz was rated among the leading
quarterbacks of the country, an6
74uirhead was ranked as one of th/
best tackles in the West.
While not coming in for such wide-
spread recognition as the above four,.
Vandervoort, Cunard, Neisch and Vick
were regulars when in condition and
played very important parts in Mich-
igan's series of 'victories and will be
greatly missed in the fall.

Figures from the office of the Sum-
mer session show that 81 more stu-
dents are enrolled this year than were
enrolled in 1923. But this increase
comes from only four of the schools:
the Graduate school with an increas-
ed enrollment of 135 students, the
School of Education with 87, the Med-
ical school with 22, and Public Health
Nursing with an increase of 39. All
of the other schools report a decrease
in enrollment, the case of the Colleges
of Engineering and Architecture being
the most extreme with a decrease of
103 students.-,
The enrollment by schools for this
summer is as follows: the School of
Literature, Science and the Arts, 1118;
the Colleges of Engineering and Arch-
itecture, 411; the Medical school, 298;
the Law school, 156; College of Phar-
,macy, 14, Graduate school, 721; School
of Education, 437; Library Methods,
89, Biological station, 46; Embalming
and Sanitary Science, 5; and Public
Health Nursing, 57.
This gives a total of 3,352 but as
the last four schools mentioned are
included in some of the others, 205
must be deducted leaving a total of

"1Present Situation in Philosophy" is
Topic of Lecture by Campus
Indicating the general movement in
philosophy at the present day, Prof.1
R. W. Sellars, of the department of
philosophy, in his lecture in the Nat-
ural Science auditorium yesterday af-
ternoon on "The Present Situation in
Philosophy," gave a brief survey of
this field.'
The modern tendency in philosophy,
Professor Sellars said, is partially to-
ward realism and partially toward na-
turalism. There are two aspects from
which this subject may be consider-
ed, feeling, or the reactions. of the
world in general on each individual
upon which personal philosophies of
life are built, and technical philoso-
phy, the decision on the general na-
ture of philosophy gained by years
of reflection and research. Philoso-
phy, the speaker declared, is closely
related to religion and science, and
has always been influenced by these
factors to greater or less degrees.
Professor Sellars proceeded to give
briefly a history of philosophy inI
America from the old school of real-
ism, through the idealistic period man-
ifested in New England transcenden-
talism, the later reaction against this
phase, to the present day new real-
ism and the influence of physical sci-
ences on it.
The controversy between the ideal-'
ists and realists deals largely with
epistemology, or the relation of the
mind to known objects, he declared.
The hostility of science toward phil-
osophy formerly so prominent here
has never been felt in Europe. Here,!
Professor Sellars believes, the two
have not been sufficiently acquainted
with the work of the other to appre-

,Probably the exhibit interesting to
the great majority of people will be
that of the course in general art, un-
der Miss Emmna Grattan. This course
is a course in public school art and
the new color theory, developed the
last four years, and is mainly for art
(teachers and supervisors.
Miss Gratten, who has been at Mich-
igan for five summers, has Jad a great
deal of experience along these lines.
She is supervisor of public school art
in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and has had
the satisfaction of seeing the refiec-
ton of her efforts noticeable in most
of the homes of the town. Cedar Rap-
ids is known throughout the state
because of her work.
The industrial arts exhibit will show
the application of the newly discover-
ed principle of dynamic symmetry.
This, though newly exploited, was ap-
plied in the famous and beautiful ex-
amples of Egyptian and Greek art.
Queer boxes of reinfoced portland;

Mr. Slusser is spending his fourth
summer as instructor here. He is a
graduate of one of the first architec-
tural classes of Michigan and has kept,
a studio in New York City since be-
fore the war. Fifteen or twenty water;
color studies of Mr. Slusser's will al-
so be on exhibition.
Tonight the Harvard Workshop
play "You and I" will be presented in
the University Hall auditorium, by
the classes in play production and
"You and I" was originally produc-
ed at the Belmont Theater, New York
with Robert Milton in the leading role,
and its recent production in Detroit
by the Bonstelle players enjoyed
marked success.
Prof. E. E. Fleischman, of the pub-
lic speaking department, is directing

the play here, while the staging is{
handled by the class in stagecraft un-
der the direction of Prof. R. C. Hun-
ter, of Ohio Wesleyan University.
A general admission fee of 50 cents
wil be charged. Tickets are on sale
at the State Street bookstores. There
will be no reserved seats. The cast
chosen from the class in play produc-
tion is as follows:
Veronica Duane, Lucille M. Shalla
Roderick White, James J. Weadock,
Nancy White, Virginia L. Gibbon.
Maitland White, Jack M. Bennett.

Waters in swollen rivers and

continued to rise, flooding low. lands
and taking toll of bridges, buildings
and crops. Just. as the volume of
water was receding after the storm
of Aug. 3, heavy rains of yesterday
afternoon added heavier burdens to

Hundreds of tourists are stranded
in cities and towns of the flooded
area, while in Milwaukee, many per-

continue journeys northward.
A milk train went into the ditch
at Kewskum with no casualties. Cities
and towns in the flooded area so far
have been able to take care of all of
the families made homeless by the
rushing torrents.
The heaviest toll was taken in the
area between Milwaukee and Fond du

losses, farmers appear stotical and
are waiting for the water to subside

Other vicinities in the same area re-

varying from 3.5 to 8 inches.
Near Campbellsport, 2 miles of con-
