Chinese Students Stop Coming to
Michigan After Dr. Angell 's Death
AT THE GARRICK
The death of President-Emeritus
James B. Angell a year ago is said by
many to be affecting the number of
Chinese students in the University of
Michigan. Michigan, at present, has
about 35 Chinese students. One year
before Dr. Angell's death, she had
more than 60, the largest number in
attendance at any college in the
It is a known fact that Dr. Angell's
presence here served to draw to the
University many Chinese students
who would otherwise have attended
eastern universities. Dr. Angell's
service as the American ambassador
to China won him the friendship and
respect of the entire Chinese people;
so much so, that the Chinese govern-
ment has officially recognized its
friendship for Dr. Angell by donating
to the University several Chinese col-
The friendly attitude of the Chinese
government was reflected in the at-
titude of the large number of Chinese
students sent here annually by their
government in accordance with the
treaty made with the United States at
the close of the Boxer uprising. The
majority of the newly emigrated stu-
dents professed a preference for Mich-
igan and not a little persuasion was
sometimes used, it is said, to prevent
too large a number from congregating
here to the exclusion of other colleges.
Michigan has therefore been known
for the large number of Chinese stu-
dents it attracted. Now, however,
there is said to be a falling off. Chinese
students are said to be joining the
eastern colleges in as large a propor-
tion as they were wont once to join
This movement to eastern colleges,
however, is expected by the Chinese
now at Michigan, to have a reaction.
Michigan, they say, is too firmly con-
nected in the Chinese, with liberal-
ness, and sympathy, to allow it so soon
to be forgotten.

Adam's American drama, " 'Ception'
Few plays this season have attract-
ed as much attention as this novel
dramatic work. The theme of the story
is the ignorance of Eve, the niece of
the keeper of the Conception Shoals
lighthouse. Blake the owner and skip-
per of the Driftwood, a yacht which
is stuck off the lighthouse is instru-
mental in affecting the education of
Eve in the mysteries of;life.
At the end of the play, Eve leaves

Concrete Poured for Final Wall Late

Concrete was poured for the last

Work has progressed, on the whole,
satisfactorily though the contractors
have been held up several times by
inclement weather and shortage of
supplies. At present the contract is
about up to schedule time, and it is
expected that the fouhdation will be
completed at the specified date, April 1.
Forms have been made for the
series of columns which will support

for them this week. A portion of the
floor will also be laid. Workmen are
now engaged in cleaning up the south-
east corner of the big hole preparatory

Gravel has been removed from sev-
eral squares of the sub-basement,
though a few hundred yards still re-
main at the west end of the basement
which is deeper tha'n the rest of the
excavation. More than 3,000 yards of
gravel has been derricked from the
hole and will remain upon the grounds
for grading and building purposes.
The concrete has proved entirely
satisfactory. In rem'oving a portion
of one of the piers yesterday it was
found that hard, flinty stones broke
and split before they loosened from
the cement. This is considered a
severe test when it is known that the
concrete will not set to its full ex-
tent until warm weather.

was started by them. After trying for
days the mayor and other officials, the
police and fire departments, and other
trigonometrical experts have failed to
Here's the puzzle: There are three
houses' in a row with a gas plant, a
steam plant, and a water plant in the
rear of them, and the grand central idea
is to run a pipe line from each plant
to each house without crossing line
or going through a house.
Hereafter the citizens of Visalia who
bump into metaphysical or other per-
plexities will "Tell it to the marines."

'DECISIONS' IS SUBJECT
LACK OF THAT QUALITY IN MAN
MAKES HIM SPORT
"Decisions" was the subject of Dr.
Hugh Black of the Union Philological
seminary, who lectured last night at
the Presbyterian church. Dr. Black
emphasised the importance of making
decisions and acting accordingly.
"The man without decision," he said,
"is the victim and sprt of anything
that can command him. Lack of de-
cision is the ruin of all character.
"The college student especially is
inclined to hesitate and remain in
doubt. He comes to college confused
and leaves it still without decision,
because he does not attempt to as-
semble and assort his knowledge into
Touching on the European war, Dr.
Black observed that the Christian end
is not peace and neutrality in the face
of a moral issue. Belgium could have
secured peace and *thereby received
great pecuniary profit, but it would
have been at the price of dishonor.
Her decision to choose honor instead
of remainint indifferent, he declared,
will glorify her forever in the pages

Dartmouth Votes on Military Training
Hanover, N. H., March 12.-In an ef-
fort to hang the cloak of Jingoism in
the closet and to hush the coo of the
doves as wbll, during the present in-
ternational crisis, the Dartmouth, daily
newspaper of Dartmouth college, is
preparing to learn the sentiment of the
campus by means of a straw vote.
A questionaire has already been sub-
mitted to the students and after a few
days consideration the questions will
be voted upon in a straw vote. Op-
portunity will thus be given to those
who wish to voice their sentiments in
the matter of military training, and
will also allow expression to the ad-
vocates of "let the people vote" plan.
