COMPLAINS OF 'LEGS'
FRESHMAN STATES THAT
LIBRARY CHAIRS ARE
Editor The Michigan Daily:
Hunbly, as becoxmes my station, I
would like to call attention to a need
which must already be apparent to
About a third of the chair legs -in
the Library reading room have rub-
ber caps or "snubbers." The effect is
as though there were none at all. The
mere fact that home of the chairs are
euipped with these noise throttlers is
indication that the Powers That Be
have at some time recognized their
value; not only as aids to concentra-
tion, but as checks upon otherwise
unavoidable disorder which is not
proper in a place of study.
The cost of equipping all the chair
legs with rubber tips certainly would
not be staggering, and the writer can
hardly think of an equally small ex-
penditure which would result in more
proportionate good to a large number.
Benjamin Franklin evidenced an an-
preciation of the value ofT "iittle
things" when, as a private citizen, he
proposed a plan for the regular sweep-
ing of the street crossings of Phila-
delphia, and showed the town board
how to increase the effectiveness of the
corner lamps. Enboldened by the ex-
ample of a great man, I venture the
above suggestion, in the honest hope
that it will be seen by some one who
is in a position to "start something,"
and is not above receiving a sugges-
tion, however lacking in originality
or point, from a
CONFER DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF
LAWS ON EDISON BY 'PHONE
University of the State of New York
Is Giver of Honor
Albany, N. Y., Oct. 24-The degree
of Doctor of Laws was conferred by
telephone on Thomas A. Edison, the
inventor, by Dr. J. H. Finley, presi-
dent of the University of the State of
New York, at the closing of the insti-
tutions fifty-second convention. Mr.
Edison was in his laboratory while the
degree was being conferred.
This is the first case on record in
which a university degree was con-
ferred by telephone, and Mr. Edison
is the second person to recieve a'de-
gree of Doctor of Laws from the Uni-
versity of New York, the only other
holder of this degree being former'
United States Senator Elihu Root.
To Hold Dance in Combined Gyms'

opening of Waterman gymnasium.
Y. W. C. A. Will Conduct Charity Re-
ilef for Stricken People
in Near East
Pastors last Sunday urged their
congregations to contribute heartily to
the "Armenian Relief Fund" day,
which is to be held between the hours
of 10 and 2 o'clock on Saturday, Oc-
tober 28, under the auspices of the
University Y. W. C. A.
Untold misfortunes have been ex-
perienced by the Armenian and Syrian
peoples, but at the present time the
conditions are more horrible than
ever. Women and children have been
deported by the thousands, while the
men have been led away in groups
outside the villages and killed with
axes and clubs. On one occasion 10,-
000 Armenians were taken out in
boats, batteries of artillery trained on
the boats as targets, and the entire
The Armenians in the United States
are endeavoring to solicit financial aid
for their kinsmen at home. Last Sat-
urday was proclaimed as a national
relief day by the president for the
stricken Christians of Turkey, and it
is hoped that the monetary returns
will add greatly to the amount that is
needed to raise the persecuted peoples
to the standardized conditions of liv-
ing. Former Ambassador Henry
Morgenthau said that $5,000,000 is nec-
essary to furnish food, clothing, and
shelter. According to statistics, one
dollar will keep one person alive one
month, and 25 dollars will enable
an Armenian family to be established
in comparative comfort.
EMMA GOLDMAN TO SPEAK
Famous Woman Anarchist to Talk on
Friends of Miss Emma Goldman an-
nounced yesterday that she would ap-
pear in Ann Arbor on Dec. 4, 5, 6, and
7, to conduct a course of six lectures
on Russian literature.
Miss Goldman, who spoke last year
on "Nietzsche, the Intellectual Storm
Center of the World" and "Birth Con-
trol-Why and How Small Families
Are Desirable," was well received by
her audiences on both occasions, and
her coming is looked forward to by
those interested in the literature of
Russia. That she is qualified to take
the lectureplatform is proved by the
fact that she has given a number of
lectures in Pittsburg and Washington
on the subject of "The Modern
Miss Emma Goldman is the author
of "Anarchism and Other Essays" and
of "The Social Significance of the
Modern Drama." She is also th'e pub-

Every Alumnus to Pledge Sum
Support of Eastern
Syracuse, N. Y., Oct. 24.-"A mil-
lion dollars for Syracuse university"
is the watchword of the promoters of
a living endowment plan which is be-
iig fostered among Syracuse alumni
all over the country. The first an-
nouncement of this plan was made
some time after the university opened
this fall, and it has already reached
large proportions through the en-
thusiastic support of the alumni.
The plan is for every alumnus of
the university to pledge whatever sum
he feels he can afford for the support
of the university, the total amount be-
ing one million dollars. No man pays
his pledge in full, however, but pays
the university the interest on his
pledge each year, at the rate of five
per cent. An alumnus who pledges
$1,000 pays $50 each year toward the
support of the university.
A clause is included in each pledge
signed by the alumni, by which pay-
ments may be deferred or even discon-
tinued in case of serious financial re-
verses over which the pledge has no
This same plan, or a similar one
has been adopted by the alumni of
many state universities and other edu-
cational institutions. Oberlin first in-
augurated the living endowment sys-
tem, and Princeton has met with great
success through a similar plan.

Wilson has striven to gain the final
favorable verdict of history.

Santo Domingo, Oct 24.-In a test
of endurance, conducted by Lieutenant
Kingston, of the United States marines
in Haiti, to determine the staying
powers of his men, 118 men, ranging
in age from 19 to 52 and carrying the
regulation field equipment, were given
the test of ascending a steep mountain
path, approximately eight miles, with-
in a two-hour limit.
Eighty-four men accomplished the
feat in the prescribed time, and of
those, 20 per cent were veterans of 44
years and over. The average age of
those who succeeded was 29 years,
while the percentage of tenderfoot re-
cruits among the losers reduced their
average to 24 years.

Ann Arbor 's Hans
Sachs Writes Poem
(Written by Dr. Tom Lovell, Oct. 24,
1916, copyright reserved.)
It can never be withdrawn unless it's
A dollar to say it's mine,
So take my tip and commence at once
To have one in to find.
Then it will give you an appetite,
To never rest not until
One is meant for a dollar to reach
To meet your honest bills.
You may be poor to say I can't,
Never get a dollar to put away,
That's what the tempter always says,
To one who will never try.
So shut your ears from listening to
Procrastination that wants
You to put off to another day
From making the first account.
In this country of fame to make a man
Of you to rise to gain,
A position of trust to be put in
If as poor as Lincoln once was,
Who rose from a little wooden hut
To the house that's white by name,
Where President Wilson is found to-
With a personality without a stain.
This country with its rocks and rills
Its mountains and its plains,
Speaking to young men in powerfu
To become brave to stand,
By giving their strength for a nobl(
To keep this country from stain,
Like the fathers who started it
Who came this side of the waves.
