rrmur #17 Law Ch
Personal Contact u
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
A flagrant example of the sort of
communication which is flooding our
Daily columns appeared in Thursday's
paper. It comprises an ambitious bit
of rhetoric purporting to be from the
conscientious pen of "Senior Law."
After reading The Michigan Daily for
nearly eight years the writer has
developed a justifiable distrust for the
veracity of such communications,
which show on their face the timidity
of their writer-his endeavor to slap
somebody on the wrist, perhaps, with-
out being seen. This communication
illustrates just that sort of thing to
the men who know the inside of the
senior law election question. I was
one of the nominees for president at
that election. Mr. Sarbaugh was my
opponent. Neither of us are members
of any professional fraternity, which
knocks the first premise in the head.
Furthermore, both Mr. Sarbaugh and
myself are ready to take oath to the
fact that we solicited no votes, made
no offers, and engaged in no peanut
politics. It is undoutedly true that
there was considerable agitation on
both sides, among our respective sup-
porters, and all of the alleged peanut
politics must of necessity have oc-
curred in the ranks of the class as a
whole. Lastly, when it developed that
irregularities had permeated this bal-
loting, the matter was referred to the
student council upon the suggestion
and solicitation of myself.
It is, therefore, pertinent to suggest
that our "Senior Law" might have
been confused on this occasion by the
odor of peanuts of his own roasting.
One can conceive of the circumstance
that he was more proud of his class
than of his name, and it surely speaks
well for his sense of loyalty. However,
the senior law class does not need
advertising, at least, no more of that
sort. Hereafter, may a sense of ac-
curacy prevail, and let it be hoped
that there will be no more senior laws
so timid or uncertain of their ground
that they will disgrace the good name
of their department by flaunting un-
signed communications before the
readers of this paper.
Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, of the en-
gineering department, was the speaker
at the second assembly of freshman
engineers held at 11 o'clock Wednes-
Dean Cooley took for the subject
of his address "The Engineer of the
Present," contrasting the methods and
difficulties of the'present day engineer
with those of the past generation. He
stated that the introduction of new
machinery and the division of the en-
gineering field had simplified the work
of the engineer, while making possible
the recent advance in the profession.
Michigan has had a prominent part in
this advance, the first separate depart-
ment of mechanical engineering hav-
ing been established here. Dean Cool-
ey will speak at the assembly next
Wednesday on "The Engineer of the

signments are completed, or students
with previous training may avail them-
selves of this opportunity.
Student Suffers Hemorrhage of Lungs
R. B. Towner, '18E, was taken to the
homeopathic hospital yesterday morn-

lungs. The hemorrhage resulted
from an injury produced by a strain
from jumping. Towner's condition is
not considered very serious.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The facts stated in the first para-
graph of Ferris Fitch's communica-
tion are stated with my concurrance,
so far as they answer the implications
in the editorial entitled "Peanut Pol-
itics." That editorial, it seems to me,
implied that the candidates were per-
sonally guilty of misconduct. There
was no evidence that either Mr. Fitch
or I personally solicited any votes,
bribed anyone with an offer of an ap-
pointment, or did anything dishonor-
able or unclean.
I agree with what was expressed in
the communication by a "Senior Law"
in yesterday's Daily, and since he has
asked what is the solution I will sug-
gest what I think the real problem Is,
that the solution may be more easily
The rule against peanut politics is
unenforceable in part. It is a mat-,
ter of proof. Any action which the
independents desire to take part in
will of necessity invade the class room
and corridors of the university build-
ings, easy to check up and prove. But
the exchange of blocks of votes over
the telephone from club to club dir-
ecting the action of organized men
need go no farther and is not prove-
able. No one with whom I have talked
has denied that the latter condition
does not exist in some degree at least.
Wissen ie Das
Deutsche House?"
"Sprechen sie Deutsch?" is the first
question one thinks of when ringing
the bell at "Das Deutsche Haus"
where seven girls who are specializ-
ing in German live 'under ideal Ger-
man influences.
Frau Palm makes her house a real
home for these girls who live as sis-
ters, with Frau Palm as their mother.
At the table only German is spoken,
but once in a great, great while Frau
Palm hears tongues flying as fast as
they can go in English.
"Oh, it is terrible. I say-" "Mad-
chen, Madehen, sie sollen Duetsch
"Oh, yes, I scold them, but It's all
in good spirit. It does them good, too.
You know we all need a little to keep
us up to the mark.
"But we all enjoy it so much. After
dinner we have a German class when
we talk over the events of the day,
read poems, and help one another in
our work. My girls help me almost
as much as I help them. I make a
home for them and they make a home
for me. They help me with English
and I help them with their German
"Oh, we will surprise you this year.
We are going to have an "A" house
-nothing but the top of the list for
my girls."
At a meeting of Omega Phi yester-
day afternoon, the members decided
to end the organization. This was
done because it was felt that there
are at present too many organizations
on the campus and the place for a
literary society was already taken by
Stylus. The prese4 exi~stence of
Omega Phi was considered to be
merely an unnecessary duplication.
Omega Phi was organized about ten
years ago, since which time it has been

in practically continuous existence.
The membership of the club has been
made up of those who were interested
in rhetoric and sociology. Various
programs of social service and lit-
erary work have been carried out
since its organization.
This is the first step which has been
taken to improve the present over-
organized state of the campus.

Japan is a nation of nature lovers.
The environment of the people devel-
ops their appreciation of nature.
Things Japanese are decorated with
flowers, birds and designs. The Jap-
anese people live with nature.
The schools in Japan have botanical
gardens, museums and nature librar-
ies. Graduate students have a custom
of presenting plants to the botanical
gardens annually. The gardens are
filled with useful and freak plants as
well as poisonous and flowering speci-
In the museums, there are stuffed
birds, mounted fish and samples of
the minerals and products of each
province. These, too, are usually giv-
en by graduate classes. Many gradu-
ates at the time of their marriage
give something to their alma mater.
