To the recent privileges granted the
women of the university comes an
additional one in the appointment of
Mrs. Harry Bacher as dean of the
women of the School of Music. The
need of a dean had been long felt and
for some time urged, and the appoint-
ment of this official is especially ap-
propriate in view of the large repre-
sentation of women in the school. t
Mrs. Bacher is eminently fitted for
the position, being a graduate of the
School of Music, and a resident of Ann
Arbor,, she brings to her task a keen
appreciation of the objects and aims
of the department and of the local
situation. Her musical ability has
earned a good reputation.
Mrs. Bacher will also give vocal
instruction in the department.

The commission has available a
fund to be spent in sending teachers
to the various educational centers of
the country to acquire new ideas for
the work that each is specializing.
The number of teachers sent this sum-
mer totals 115.

The last issue of the University of
Michigan Gothamite for the year 1912-
13 has appeared, containing articles
on the doings of the New York club
since the last month, a review of the
baseball and spring track season at
the university, and a review of what
the club has accomplished during the
past year.
Among other things the club has
contributed $2,500 toward the $8,000
debt on the Alumni Memorial build-
ing, it has established a committee on
business information which has plac-
ed four Michigan men in responsible
positions, has issued the Gothamite
regularly and distributed it to club-
members, regents and university offi-
cers, arranged for weekly news-letters
and for illustrated articles on Michi-
gan in the New York Times.
One of the things that they did not
do was to express an opinion on "The
Athletic Situation" of Michigan.
