Social work for Michigan graduates
has become a working ideal in New
York and Philadelphia. Nine Civic
Service Committees which have been
recently organized in New York City,
represent nine colleges, Amherst, Co-1
lumbia, Cornell, Harvard, Michigan,
Pennsylvania, Princeton, Williams,
and Yale, for the purpose of putting
college graduates who locate in that
city in touch with the opportunity for
real social service.
The idea is to get the young college
man, fresh from school and full of
enthusiasm, to become interested in
some civic movement. This social
work is found in various organiza-
tions, the settlement, boy's club work,
the big brother movement, the boy
scout movement, public school ath-
letics, the recreation pier, charity or-
ganizations, political parties, the Y. M.
C. A., and military work.
The committee is put into touch with
those who intend to locate in New
York and offers each man an oppor-
tunity to spend one evening a week in
some such useful and agreeable oc-
cupation asthose mentioned.
In Philadelphia this work is in the
hands of one committee representing
six colleges: Harvard, Yale, Pennsyl-
vania, Princeton, Michigan, and Hav-
erford. The committee attempts the
same task as those in New York and
is known as the Alumni Social Ser-
vice Committee. A Michigan man, O
W. Perrin, '01, is treasurer.
Michigan is theronly western school
represented in work of this kind with
the larger universities in the east.
The headquarters for the work in New
York is the Student Club, 554 W. 114th
St., and is in charge of Dr. R. S. Cope-
land, '89h, chairman.
'09 Engineer Takes Important Position
Fred Zeder, '09E, was recently ap-
pointed to the position of consulting
engineer of the Studebaker corpora-
tion. Since leaving school he has been
employed by a large Milwaukee firm
and by the Studebaker company, as
consulting engineer of the E. M. F.
plant, the auto division, and later as
head of the chemical and electrical

the dash for safety.
Mr. H. E. Hite, the foreman on the
excavation part of the work, in speak-
ing of the catastrophe said, "The ac-
cident occurred at a rather unfortu-
nate time, because we were crowded
and were pushing the work right
along. It will cost at least $2500 to re-
pair the damage besides delaying the
job at least a week." It is said, how,
ever, that the work of repair will be

Work decidedly above that of the
average cast of amateurs character-
ized the public recital of "Romeo and
Juliet" given by the class in Shakes-
pearean reading before a capacity
audience in Sarah Caswell Angell Hall
last night.
Edward Moseman, who has taken
part in several of the Union operas,
and in plays presented by Proscenium,
was the star of the cast. His work
in the last scene merited all the ap-
plause which an enthusiastic audience
gave it. Mary A. Bronson, who played
Juliet in the tomb scene, contributed
no small share toward making it stand
out above all others.
