THOUSANDS ATTEND BIG
AUTO SHOWIN DETROIT
ANNV1 MI 1)-WINTER EXHIBIT IN
T-A 'E-NACLE, TEIflEI FIN-
With, the largest Monday afternoon
attendan-e in the history of Detroit
automojbile shows, the annual mid-
winter exhibit in the tabernacle build-
ing started the week in a very satis-
factory manner. A continual stream
of contented people poured in and out
of the tabernacle for the first two days,
the aggregate running into the thous-
The showgoers first comment is on
the layout of the building. Its beauty
is contagious and veterans do not
hesitate in proclaiming it one of the
best looking shows ever held in any
city, not excepting the national affairs.
The Japanese scheme of decoration fits
nicely in the big structure, and there
is such harmony in the varied hues-
and articles used to bring it out, that
the artistic sense of George W. Graves,
the architect and designer, is highly
In keeping with the surroundings,
the cars exhibited are far ahead of
anything ever before produced. They
are spick and span, the refinement of
years of research on the part of ex-
ceptional engineers and clever de-
More buyers have been at the ses-
sions so far, than expected. There
have been many downright sales and
innumerable prospects are registered
in the little books of the salesmen.
One of the factory men who is help-
ing out at a booth remarked that he
never had seen so many people who
are ready to pay cash for cars, few
asking terms or even trades. Different
factory bands play in the afternoon
and evening and many soloists, em-
ployes of the several manufacturing
companies, are rendering numbers
with true knowledge of music.
STUDENT CONFERENCE TO
BE HELD IN ANN AROR
PLAN TO ACCOMMODATE 200 DELE.
GATES AT MEETINGS ON
FEB. 23 TO 25
The second quadrennial student vol-
unteer conference for the state of
Michigan is to be held in Ann Arbor
this year, beginning Feb. 23 and con-
tinuing through Feb. 25. The local
committee is making plans for the ac-
commodation of 200 delegates.
The first quadrennial conference was
held four years ago at Lansing pre-
ceding the international convention
with its 5,000 student delegates at
Kansas City in 1914, and 'the Ann Ar-
bor conference is the forerunner of
another international convention to be
held next year. The University of
Michigan was represented at the Lan-
sing convention by 76 delegates, and
at the larger gathering by a delega-
tion of 60. Since the state conference
is to be this year in Ann Arbor, it is
hoped that many more students will
be able to take advantage of its op-
The purpose of the student volun-
teer movement is to interest students
in the work of the church in other
lands. There is a feeling among the
leaders of the movement that hundreds
of America's Christian students should
and their places in the mission fields
of the world, whether their work is
in the line of engineering, medicine,

Wisconsin: Statistics gathered by the
doctors who examine every student
seeking admission to the University,
show that of the 6,000 students en-
rolled, 3,000 of them have eye trou-
ble. Of this number two per cent
more men were affected that the
women, and half of the defects were
cured by properly fitted glasses.
Harvard: Harvard is working toward
the re-establishment of basketball
as an intercollegiate sport. No of-
ficial announcement has been made
but officers of the Intercollegiate
Basketballsleague have been quiet-
ly at work to have Harvard re-en-
ter the sport.
Iowa: Mental tests have been given
this fall to all of the freshmen who
entered the university. The conclus-
ions to be drawn from the records
show that the engineering freshmen
were slightly superior to the literary
freshmen and that the men of the
literary college were quite a bit
superior in ability to the women.
The information gathered will be
used to advise the entrants as to
what work they had best follow.

Pictures of New Dam and Talk by Prof.
ENGINEERING SOCIETY TO GIVE
NOVEL PROGRAM ON FRIDAY
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
I was discussing municipal matters
with a friend, who asked me the ques-
tion: "Whom ought we to have for our
next mayor?" tI answered, "Ann Ar-
bor is a representative, and peculiar
city in many respects. We have many
and large educational gatherings. Hun-
dreds of visitors come here during our
May festivals, summer schools and
other attractions for recreation, pleas-
ure, and study. This city should have
at its head a man whom we would be
proud to be represented by when oc-
casion required, a man of wide ex-
perience in municipal affairs."
After some thought, I expressed my-
self to the effect that I could think of
no person who could so creditably fill
the position as Filibert Roth, recent
president, and at present a director of
the Civic association, a man thor-
oughly familiar with civic matters, a
fine, entertaining speaker before audi-
ences of all kinds, be they labor or-
ganizations, religious, political or edu-
cational; a kind, genial and good fel-
low to everyone. He is a man who
would not only be invaluable in as-
sisting this city in the many difficult
problems which confront it, but would
be a credit and honor in representing
us on public occasions whenever op-
ways appreciated and the city honors
them when occasions present them-
selves. Professor Thompson, Drs.
Darling and Copeland were three as
efficient mayors as ever took charge
of this city. Dean M. E. Cooley was
president of the council for two years.
The voters of Ann Arbor were only
too glad to avail themselves of the
services of such valuable men.
Voters of Ann Arbor, irrespective of
parties, let us make a rousing demon-
stration in favor of Filibert Roth for
our next mayor. H. H. HERBST.

Ann Arbor would do itself honor if
it would elect him to this important
office and persuade him to accept it.
I have not seen Mr. Roth for over a
year and do not know if he would ac-
cept the trust, but I know him to be
a public-spirited man and feel that he
would accept the honor if tendered to
I have heard expressions to the ef-
fect that some voters might object t
the election of a university man to
that office. I take no stock in such
talk. The University represents over
one-third of the city's population. It
contributes over one-half of its sup-
port. The professors, instructors, and
parents who come here to have their
children educated pay a large share
of the taxes.
This the voters of Ann Arbor know,
or should know, and the few narrow-
minded, prejudiced persons who can-
not see this have but little influence
and form a minute factor in deciding
The fault lies more in the fact that
the faculty of the University does not
take enough interest in the city of
which they should form an important
part. Whenever they do take an in-
terest in their city's affairs, it is al-
