A. A. Stanley of the School of

Toledo, March 10.-Prof. Scott Near-
ing, head of the economics department
in the Toledo university, who recently
spoke in University Hall, has handed
in his resignation to the board of reg-
ents of Toledo university.
Severe criticisms on his attitude on
the recent submarine question as a
result ,of several public addresses
given by Professor Nearing, which, he
claims, is. hampering to him in his
work, are the reasons given for his
intention to resign.
Two years ago Professor Nearing
resigned from the University of Penn-
sylvania where his views on economic
questions resulted in conflict.

"Panthea," starring Norma, Tal-
madge, will be shown at the Arcade

ARRANGEMENTS COMPLETED
FOR COMBINED EXHIBIT
Departments in Natural Science Build-
ingto Entertain May Festival
Guests This Year
Arrangements for an exhibit of ex-
tensive proportions by the combined
departments in the Natural Science
building, to be given during May Fes-
tival week, were launched several days
ago when the board of regents made
special appropriations to carry out the
plan.
A similar exhibition was given by
the engineering college last spring
where the natural science department
had only a meager share. This year
the exhibit will be given exclusively
by the various departments of natural
science in the New Science building.
Prof. C. W. Cook heads a commit-
tee which is rapidly formulating plans.
Besides the exhibits of the various de-
partments, a large number of special

exhibits will be secured.
The exhibit will serve as a formal
opening of the Natural Science build-
ing to the public for inspection. °A
program will be arranged on which
special lecturers are to appear.
Bridge Party Nets Twenty-two Dollars
Twenty-two dollars were realized as
the proceeds of a bridge party given
yesterday afternoon at the Delta
Gamma sorority house under the
auspices of the Daughters of the
American Revolution. Cards were
played at 20 tables, and during the
afternoon several interesting violin se-
lections were rendered by Amy Nel-
son, '17, and Neva Nelson, a student
in the School of Music.
The proceeds will be given to the
Ann Arbor branch of the Red Cross
society for use in the European war
relief work. The rooms were decor-
ated with American flags.
Smallpox Scares 'Em at Minnesota
Minneapolis, Minn., March 10.-Om-
inous signs of a smallpox epidemic
have led the authorities at the Univer-
sity of Minnesota to take decisive
steps to prevent any spread of the
disease. Vaccinations are made ob-
ligatory on those students who have
been exposed to its influence.

PLAN TO AMEND CONSTITUTION
OF WOMEN'S LEAGUE AT MEET
A proposed amendment to the con-
stitution of the Women's league, con-
cerning the appointments to the nom-
inating committee of the league, is
pending adoption until the next meet-
ing of the board of directors.
As the constitution now stands, it
provides for a nominating committee
consisting of all the seniors of the
board, and of members of each class
except the junior, appointed by the
president of the board. According to
the advocated amendment, the nomin-
ating committee shall be composed of
seniors exclusively, not exceeding
seven in number. An advisory board
to assist the committee in their
choice of nominations will be appoint-
ed by the president from among the
underclass-women.

tIansas Faculty's Salaries Are Cut
Lawrence, Kans., March 10.-Salar-
ies of Kansas University faculty men
have been cut $15,000 by an action of
the Kansas legislature, notwithstand-
ing the plea that Kansas is losing its
best men because of inadequate sal-
aries. Rumor has it that personal anti-
pathy is behind the decrease.

burg, Mich., will address the Catholic
Students' club, March 14, in the
Knights of Columbus' parlors, on the

'he ancient authors tell us some-
ig about the scales upon which the
ek melodies were constructed, and
re interesting, a few fragments of
lent musical notation have surviv-,
Some 25 years ago, there was dis-
ered among the ruins of Delphi, the
red city of Apollo, an inscription
taiming not only the words of a
nn in honor of the god, but also
e musical notes, consisting of
ek letters and modifications of
in, denoting the pitch of the syl-
les of the hymn.
.Modernize Notes
'hese notes were reduced to modern
ation, and they hav-e served in part
a basis for investigation of Greek
sic. However, the evidence they
e is scant and unsatisfactory. Pro-
or Stanley says that if a person

er by chance a single page torn
n some music drama of Wagner's.
two or three pieces by second and
d-rate composers, he would have
about the same kind of evidence
reconstruct the music of our time,
we have to judge of ancient musi-
art.d
owever, Professor Stanley has not
ed to reconstruct the ancient lyric
Instead he has used melodic sug-
tions drawn from the Greek modes
adapted to the action of the drama.-
choral lyrics, he has composed in
raordinarily varied rhythms, the
s being partly long, and part,
rt, while the long and short syl-
les are arranged in a number of
uliar figures.
