All Upperclasmen Must Consult
Advisor Under New Classifica-
tion Committee Plan
Two important changes made in
the system of course election and
classification for upperclassmen
will go into effect with the regis-
tration in September, according to
an announcement made yesterday
by Prof. D. L. Rich who is in charge
of planning the enrollment system.
Establishment of Upperclass Ad-
visory committees for all Sopho-
mores, Juniors, and Seniors and
the discontinuance of the Classifi-
cation committee are the chief in-
novations in the fall plans.
Specialization Essentia
Every uppeieh1sman must se-
lect an adviser from the depart-
ment in which he is specializing.
There will be more than 30 groups
of advisers, one group for each de-
partment and one composed of
those instructors who will act as
advisers to those students who
specify no particular line of spe-
cialization. Elections by students
must be approved by an adviser
before they may classify.
The list of advisers will be avail-
able about one week before Fresh-
man week.
Students will be permitted to se-
lect their own hours and instruc-
tors provided the sections of their
choice are not already filled. As
time schedules are appearing in the
announcement of the college, there
will be no time schedule published
for next semester.
Classification Folder
All courses will be listed on the
program sheet used for classifica-
tion. Due to the increased num-
ber of classes listed, this sheet will
be printed and issued in folder
form.
Selection of advisers will be made
at the time of registration from
the list provided. Heretofore, no
check has been made on the elec-
tions of Juniors and Seniors, and it
is hoped that through the inaugur-
ation of the Advisory committee a
higher type of election will be
made.

Two racing cars, one of which
has won four of its five starts this
season and is leading for the world
racing championship, left Ann Ar-
bor today for the east where they
will be entered in races on several
of the leading eastern dirt tracks.
The racers, both Miller Specials,
are owned by the Yahr and Smith
Racing Co. of this city. Floyd A.
Smith will accompany the autos
east and supervise all mechanical
work. The cars will be driven east
mounted on trucks. Wilbur Shaw,
noted speedway driver and racer
who has finished in the money
several times at Indianapolis, will
pilot the car which is now leading
for the American Automobile As-
sociation championship. Paul Bost,
also of Indianapolis, will drive the
other machine.
According to Mr. Miller, Shaw,
driving the Miller Special which
has been built at the Yahr and
Smith plant at 206 West Huron
St., needs only to win another start
to cinch the championship. There
are not enough major races re-

any other car to overhaul Shaw,

cursions which resemble our Boyj
Scout and Campfire organizations,
but which perhaps do not have
quite as much adult guidance, sat-
isfy the wanderlust instinct that is
inherent in many a growing boy
and girl. There is an honest effort
to humanize education.
Citizenship Stressed
"Emphasis is laid on citizenship
in this attempt to get out of
materialism into Nature," Dr.
Schorling said, "and there is great
interest in sports. Stress is laid
on physical education and on health
and athletic programs. There are
scores of play fields for tennis and
other games resembling our foot-
ball and volley ball. Some of these
athletic plants were employed by
th military machine preceding and
during the war as training camps.
Today they are vacation schools.
The physical education program is
a varied one. Emphasis is placed
on culture and simplicity. A gen-
uine reaction against militaristic
tendencies exists-one never sees
a soldier now. It would be very
difficult, I think, to put the modern
German youth into a uniform."
In concluding the interview, Dr.
Schorling said, "Even though Dr.j
Woody and I had an unusual op-
portunity to see German schools,
one feels that one cannot get to
the bottom of things in so short a
visit. Hence, I was somewhat
amused upon my return to read an
announcement that I was going to
write a book on German schools.
We will leave that for those who

try to hold such gatherings for
the exchange of ideas. Many of the
students stated that they favored
such discussion groups because in
this way they were able to make
more faculty contacts and felt more
free to discuss problems.

Prof. Henri Chamard of University
of Paris, Authority on Renais-
sance, To Come Here
SIX INSTRUCTORS LEAVE
Eleven new instructors will be
added to the staff of the depart-
ment of romance languages at the
beginning of the fall semester.
Seven members of the faculty, in-
cluding Prof. Arthur G. Canfield,
former head of the French depart-
ment, have left the University.
Prof. Henri Chamard of the Uni-
versity of Paris, will take up a
professorship here the second se-
mester. He is an outstanding au-
thority on Renaissance literature.
Two Assistant Professors

Two of the new men have been
appointed to assistant professor-
ships. One of them is Dr. Charles
Knudson, Ph.D., Harvard, who
IIhas this year been at the Uni-
versity of Buffalo. His special-
ty is the French literature of
the Middle ages. The other assis-
tant professor is Jean Ehrhard,
graduate of the Ecole Normale Su-
perieure with highest honors, his
specialized subject being literature
of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Prof. Harry Wann, head of the
modern language department at
the Terre Haute Normal, will teach
half time while completing his
doctor's work. Among the other
new men are W. H. Bentley, grad-
uate of Yale, instructor in Italian;1
I M. Brien, graduate and instructor
at Princeton, instructor in French;
Jean Cloppet is returning after a!
year's leave of absence; J. Rice,
graduate Ohio State university, in-
structor in French; T. T. Foley,
graduate of Harvard, instructor in
French; R. C. Steward, graduate of
the University of Tennessee,
French; Roy Nygren, University of
Michigan, instructor at Culver Mil-
itary academy, French.
Varied Destinations
In addition to Professor Canfield,
six instructors are leaving the de-
partment. Capt. Robert V. Finney
will go to Purdue; Homer A. Des-
Marais is going into business; Jean!
A. Maigret to the United States
Naval academy; Anton Napoliis
going to the University of Wiscon-
sin as instructor and will also work -
on his Ph.D.; Earl A. Resweber will
go to the City College of Detroit;

Locked In Liner
Aboard the Thuringia today they
locked him up in a detention cell
somewhere down in the hold and
he made the trip over in the Zeppe-
lin shut up in a tiny box-like com-
partment high up in the ship's tail
without any view at all.
Buschko was brought to New
York today from Gloucester, N. J.,,
where he had been held by immi-
gration authorities since Sunday.
Officials of the steamship company
refused to allow him to be inter-
viewed or photographed in a.-
cordance with a plan to discourage
the practice of stowing away on
ocean liners and airships.
He will be taken off at Hamburg
to await the action of German au-
thorities for leaving the country
without a passport.
Second Stowaway
It was a little later than Dr.
Hugo Eckener had planned to get
away, some delay having been caus-
ed bya plumber's apprentice from
Trenton, N. J., who had acquired
big ideas about stowaways.
After the, aspiring stowaway,
Morris Roth, had seen safely de-
posited in the navy brig, and a
thorough search had convinced
officers that another youth seen
lurlang close to an open cargo port
had been frightened away, affairs
moved with complete precision.
Four hundred blue-clad sailors
tugged at ropes dropped from the
enormous frame of the mistress of
the ocean skies. The Zeppelin stir-
red with a sound like a great sigh
and moved slowly stern-first from
the hangar. And then the band
burst into melody:
"It's a long, long trail a-winding
"To the lands of my dreams."
Eckener Boyishly Glad
And the old song in this playing
contained as much truth as poetry.
For this flight around the world
was a dream that had been burn-
ing in the heart of Dr. Eckener,
the ship's commander, for many
years. It was a great day for Dr.
Eckener and before the bustle of
last preparations for the take-off
he was in high spirits, laughing
and joking with reporters, poking
fellow officers in the ribs and act-
ing like a boy for all that he will
