Rule Regarding Proessionalism Will
Prevent Summer League Men
From Getting Share
There is a rule pertaining to profes-
sionalism among college athletes,
which states that such persons are
prohibited from playing the recogniz-
ed college sports for prize money. For
this reason, when the all-campus base-
ball team crosses bats with the Ann
Arbor Independents at 10:01) o'clock
next Wednesday morning, the student
aggregation will receive only that
amount necessary to defray expenses.

for any reason any of the above-named
find it impossible to comply with this
request, it is desired that they imme-

Pro Meader Believes They Will Come
Out of European Struggle
With More Liberty
"In the present European upheaval,
the Russian people will be successful.
There can be no other result." So said
Prof. C. L. Meader in his lecture yes-
terday afternoon on "Russia and the
Present European Crisis." "It makes
little difference whether the Russian
armies meet with success or defeat,
the ultimate result of the war will be
an increase of liberties for the mass
af the Russian people."
Professor Meader based this opinion
on the fact that in its past history ev-
ery war brought a change in the con-
dition of the Russian people. After
the famous defeat of 1860, the serfs
were liberated, and after the defeat
by Japan in 1905 the people were given
many of the liberties they had asked
for such as the constitution and parli-
ament, although most of these later
proved to be merely nominal.
No Spirit in Fight With Japs
"Do not think that the Russian ar-
my or the Russian spirit of today is
anything like it was in the Japanese
war of 1905. The heart of the Musco-
vite never was in the struggle in the,
far east. He knew from the begin-
ning that the difficulty was caused
only because some of the nobles wish-
ed to gain certain timber rights. Whole
regiments of tht Russians walked
over to the enemy and laid down their
arms. On the streets of Petersburg
men rejoiced over a Japanese victory
more than they did over.a Russian vic-
tory. In the present struggle things
are different. The Muscovite is fight-
ing for his country and for his race,
and he has something to inspire him
to go onward into battle."
Audience Enthusiastic
In the beginning of the lecture Prof.
:header gave a short history of Russia
from the time of Peter the Great down
to the present, and discussed the va-
rious elements in the national char-
acter of the Russian. Many views of
Russian buildings and of Russian rul-
ers were used to illustrate the lecture
and so interested did the audience be-

come in the discussion that when he
first attempted to stop cries of "Go
on, Go on" were heard throughout the
lecture room.
In closing the lecture Professor

"ITwo Hamiltons" Among Those to Be
Missing From Teaching Force
Next Semester
A complete reorganization will mark
the department of economics for the
coming term, due to the five men who
have left the teaching staff. Work for
the coming semester has been tenta-
tively arranged, pending the arrival of
Prof. Henry C. Adams February 1.
Professor Adams, who is head of the
economic department, has been spend-
ing the year' i China, assisting in the
systemization of the railroads there.
The principal loss of the economics
staff is that of the "twos Hamiltons."
Prof. Walton .H. Hamilton, who has
been a popular teacher in the depart-
ment for the past few years, has ac-
cepted a better post at the University
of Chicago. He will have charge of
the work in economic theory, a chair
which has been occupied at various
times by the foremost economists in
the country. Stuart M. Hamilton, in-
structor in commerce and industry, as
well as a class in elementary econom-
ics, has abandoned teaching and will
go into business. He is undecided be-
tween two or three offers and has not
determined where he will settle. Mar-
tin J. Shugrue, instructor in economic
theory, will be connected with the ac-
counting department of the Massachu-
setts School of Technology, while Rus-
sel A. Stevenson, instructor in account-
ing will enter the accounting branch
of the University of Iowa. Bradshaw
Langmaid, who has been serving as an
instructor, will pursue advance stud-
ies in economics at Harvard.
Robert J. Rodkey, '14, and Frank F.
Kolbe, '14, will fill vacancies in the ac-
counting department. William F. Mar-
steller, nho spent several years ofl
study in Switzerland, has been trans-
ferred to economics from the French
department, where he has been teach-
ing during the past year. Mr. Ivey,
of the University of Illinois, comes to
Michigan as an instructor.
The ranks of the assistants depleted1
by graduation have been filled as fol-
lows: Robert F. Paton, '16, first teach-
ing assistant; Russell D. Kilborn, '15,
Mr. Miller, Charles S. Morgan, '14, and
Harry J. Connine, '15.1

Library Class Visits Detroit InstitutionI
The students in the school of library
methods went to Detroit yesterday to;
make a tour of inspection of the publici
library and several of the branch li-
braries in that city. Most of the time
was spent at the large public library
in the center of the odwn town district,I
where a thorough investigation of the1
system and methods used ,in the insti-
tution is being made. The trip is un-
der the direction of librarian Theodore
W. Koch,
Meader pointed to a photograph of
Tolstoi which had been projected on

the screen and said: "He is the great-
est Russian because he is the Russian.
His character and his life are the
embodiments of the character and life
of the whole Russian people."
