Yesterday afternoon's lecture was
given by Professor Leroy Waterman
on the subject "Higher Criticism" in
the Science auditorium.
"Higher Criticism" as discussed by
Prf. Waterman dealt with criticism
of the Bible, especially of its inter-
polated parts, commentaries, changes
that have been known to have taken
place in its wording due to the inac-
curate readings of typists and a just
and impartial criticism of the doubt-
ful passages and sentences of hidden
"In this regard," he said, "we could
not take exception to Robert Inger-
soll, whose charges were unanswer-
able, but nevertheless restoring the
Book to the realm of thinking people,.
"Dry rationalism had no part in
this. The Sermon on the Mount, the
Two Great Commandments, etc., did
not get authority from the Book, but
they gave the Book authority because
they were in it."
Prof. Waterman is head of the de-
partment of Semitics in the Univer-
sity and received his education in
Oxford University, England. He has
brought the department up to a much
higher standard than had existed
prior to his taking charge, which was
some five years ago.
Jewish ook is Aid to Christian
Scholar in Explaining Old
Rabbi D. Lefkowitz, of Dayton, Ohio,
concluded his series of lectures on
Jewish literature Thursday afternoon
with a lecture on "The Legalism and
Ethics of the Talmud.
In commenting on the great aid of
the, Talmud to the Christian scholar,
Rabbi Lefkowitt said, "The Talmud
fills out the period in which Jesus
lived. It gives a great insight into
the ltanguage of thip New Testament,
for example, this instance-the Holy
Spirit to the Jewish mind took the
form of a liquid. Therefore the Bibli-
cal expression "Baptism by the Holy

is all written down in the Talmud.
The work consists of 12 folios. There
Is a small text and much commentary.
The legalism of the Talmud is fused
in the general text of legends, tales
and poetry.. There is not an attempt
to make a general law but only an at-
tempt to shom a reason for things.
"The ethical part of the Talmud
may be explained in the same way,"
said Rabbi Lefkowitz, "the ethics are
not specifically pointed out but only
generally explained.

views the list of 1916 graduates and
iemoans the shattering of this year's
record-breaking two-mile relay team,'
he finds a certain measure of comfort
in contemplating what next year's
one-mile relay team may be if "Steve"
Farrell's hopes come to pass.
At the Stanford meet this spring, the
Michigan one-mile relay team ran the
distance in 3 minutes 23 and 3-5 sec-
onis, wlich is iaster than a Michigan
team has ever run it before. In fact,
this mark is but a shade slower than
those hung up at the Drake and Penn
relay carnivals. Of the four men who
ran that race, Griest is the only one
that has graduated. The other three
omen, Fontanna, Huntington, and Har-j
dell, will all be in school next year.
To these names we may add that of
Leland Scofield, considered the best'
quarter-miler in the crowd this spring,
but who was forced from the track by
an injury to his leg. He has entirely
recovered from the injury and will be
able to again take his place on the
cinder path next spring.
Last, and most emphatically not
least, and here "Steve's" eyes glisten
as he contemplates the prospect, "Al"
Robinson may come back to school in
the fall. And it will be remembered
that it was the concensus of opinion
in the east last winter that Robinson
was the only man in America who had
a chance of beating "Ted" Meredith at
the Intercollegiates this spring. ,
Yes, Michigan's two-mile relay team
has been badly dented by graduation,
but maybe a one-mile aggregation
composed of Robinson, Scofield,, Fon-
tanna and Huntington, wouldn't make
somebody take its dust. The king is
dead, long live the king!
She '1 Never be
the Same iartha
(By Margaret Cooley)
The spell has been broken and the
santity defiled. Man has invaded the
realms heretofore unopened to hin
and, never again will Martha Cook
be the same. Loud and rasping now
sounds the voice of man where once
was known only the sweet and gentle
voices of maidens-where man was
permitted to speak only in the softest
of whispers. O ye ghost of the ardent
stude, draw nigh with bated breath
and see men walking boldly, rough-
shod, into the halls where ye could
never enter. For Martha Cook is hav-
ing its first real cleaning.


There are only three more
days left to sign up for the *
tennis tournament. Wednesday *
night is set as the limit, and if *
at least 25 men have not signed
up by that time the tournament
will be called off. Up to the
present time there have only
been 17 entries and this num-
ber is not sufficient to make the
tournament worth while. There
is absolutely no reason why at
least thirty men should not be
entered for this meet, as the
players on the courts every day
exceed that number.

Girls at Newberry Residence are
going to have some real excitement on
one of these hot summer nights, when
for Athe first time during the summer
session a fire drill will be held.
Plans were drawn the other night
wherein it was decided that the matter
be taken up at once, and tonight they
will have the first tryout to get things
in working order, so when the real
alarm is sounded, confusion will be
somewhat eradicated.
Those who were chosen for officers
are: Captain, Mildred Mighell; lieu-
tenants: first floor, Dorothy Jowle;

lits and Laws Meet in First Game
of Season Thursday
At a meeting of the executive board
of the summer school baseball league
at The Wolverine office last evening,
final arrangements were made for the
opening of the league season next
week. Practice for all teams will be
held Tuesday and the. regular games
will begin Thursday when the lits and
the laws lock horns on the Ferry Field
arena. Saturday the engineers will
face the lits and the scientists will
take on the legal gang from the north-
west corner. The full schedule will
not be announced until next week.
Managers for the engineers and laws
were elected at the meetings of these
teams held Thursday night, Lash
Thomas being chosen to lead the bar-
risters, with "Dick" Gardner directing
the destinies of the boilermakers. The,
science crew will elect a manager dur-
ing the early part of next week.
A new feature decided upon by the
executive board was the holding ,of a
tag day on the campus sometime in the
near future. The league receives no
financial support whatever from the
athletic association, and it is up to the
men to procure the necessary collat-
eral for balls, bats, etc., from outside
Although it is next to impossible
to dope the strength of the teams at
this early date, the lits on paper look
to have an excellent chance to cop

dally strong in the battery positions,

such men as "Joe" itobbins, Varsity
pitcher, "Wallie" Niemann, of the Re-
serve squad, and Shutes and David-
son, class league box stars. Behind
the bat they have Stallings, formerly
a backstop on the Varsity squad. Be-
sides their excellent material, the its
have another element of success in
the "pep" they have shown. They had
by far the -largest representation at
the big mass meeting Tuesday evening,
they were the first team to elect a
nianager, and were also the first team
to get in harness, having already con-
ducted a practice.
A campaign was initiated Wednes-
day of this week by the local Y. M.
C. A. to raise a fund of approximately
$200, Ann Arbor's share in providing
men of the Thirty-first Regiment,
Michigan .National Guard, of which
Company I is a unit, with a Y. M. M.
C. A. tent where the militia may re-
ceive supplies such as writing ma-
terial and similar things, and where,
too, they will have diversion while
free from duty. Monday has been
chosen as the day when money will be
received from those interested in the
welfare and enjoyment of the soldiers
who went from this city. Those so
interested should telephone to the
local Y. M. C. A. building Monday; a
member of the local Boy Scout Or-
ganization will be dispatched to your
residence or place of business to re-
ceive the amount you will give to this
