The Committee on
Non-Athletic affairs,
1 now known as the
Committee on Stu-
dent Affairs, was first
organized March 26,
1902. Its organiza-
tionl followed a resolution by the Uni-
versity Senate recommending that the
president of the University appoint a
committee of live men to investigate
the financial affairs of the Student
Lecture association.
Acting on this recomrmendation,
President James B. Angell appointed
Professors Spaulding, Knowlton,
Huber, Whitney, and Rebec to con-

stitute the committee.


Spaulding was chairman, and Profes-
sor Rebec secretary. Soon after its
organization the committee called the
managing editor and the business
manager of the Michigan Daily before
it to investigate the management of
the Daily and its relation to the stu-
dent body, arid soon after this it took
similar action with regard to the
The organiz'ation of the Committee
on non-Athletic Affairs soon led to the
development of the office of faculty
auditor of student organizations,
which position is now held by Regis-
trar Arthur G. Hall. Since the prim-
ary reason for the organization of the
committee was the financial supervi--
sion of student activities, it added to
its functions the investigation of the
finances of all student publications,
the Glee club, the Oratorical associa-
tion, the Good Government club, the
University band, and other organiza-
tions which had to do with Univer-
sity life.
The Committee on non-Athletic af-
fairs has had a continuous existence
since its beginning in 1902, and dur-
ing its existence has gradually had to
look after all classes of activities,
with the exception only of those activ-
ities strictly. athletic in nature. In
the spring of 1914 the name of the
committee was officially changed to
the Committee on Student Affairs.
As constituted at present the com-
mittee is composed of the following
men: Prof. L. A. Strauss, Chairman,
Prof. F. N. Scott, Prof. H. C. Sadler,

Prof. Evans Holbrook, Prof. Udo J.
Wile, Prof. A. A. Stanley, Dean Myra
B. Jordan, Prof. W. A. Frayer, Prof.
Wilbur R. Humphreys, and Registrar
Arthur G. Hall, secretary. Each mem-
ber of the committee, with the excep-
tion of the chairman and the secre-
tary, is head of one of the committees'
sub-committees. These sub-commit-
tees cover every branch of University
life, outside of athletics, and the
Committee on Student Affairs has the
right to veto action of any one of the
minor bodies. The sub-:committees
are as follows:
The board in control of publica-
tions, the committee on dramatic and
musical organizations, the committee
on eligibility, the committee on house
clubs and fraternities, the committee
on the Michigan Union, the commit-
tee on women's organizations, the
committee on the Students' Christian
association, and the committee on the
Oratorical association.
Beginning with the present college
year, the president of the Student
council and the president of the Wo-
men's league were invited to attend
the meetings of the Committee on
Student Affairs and take part in its
deliberations. As it is constituted
at present the committee, with its
large powers of supervision and ad-
ministration, is one of the most potent
factors in Michigan's university life.
The petition of the students of the
College of Pharmicy to have a regular
monthly assembly will be presented to
the faculty of that college tonight .
This petition was arranged by the
combined committees from all classes.
It is the outcome of a meeting called
Wednesday by a committee from the
senior class, consisting of Lawrence
Heustis, '17P, and P. E. Gibson, '17P,
that was appointed to look into the
matter of all-pharmic assemblies. A
motion at that meeting to have the
assemblies was unanimously carried.
The faculty look favorably on the
matter and it is certain to be passed.

Senior and Sophomore Women Battle
for Basketball Title
Senior and sophomore teams will
play the cup game of the women's
basketball season at 5 o'clock this
afternoon as a feature of the weekly
Women's league party. Both teams
are in excellent trim after last week's
interclass victories and the supporters
of each are confident in their predic-
tions of success in today's battle.
With practically the same players
which won the college championship
last year, the sophomores are pre-
pared to fight to the last whistle to
maintain their title, while the seniors,
encouraged by their Saturday's tri-
umph over the strong junior sextette,
are equally determined to wrest it
from them.
Interest in the contest is running
high and the double attraction of
dancing and basketball is expected to
bring out a record-breaking crowd.
Today's junior-freshman sub game
was won by the freshmen, after a
point for point race throughout the
greater part of the two periods.

class teams will go into the game

Max Bloom's new edition of "The
Sunny Side of Broadway," which
opened at the Majestic theater last
night. A few snappy lines are buried
beneath a ton of ancient trivialities,
the songs lack vim and snap, while
Max Bloom's interpretation of "Abey,"
the Hebrew, is a caricature popular
only on the burlesque stage. It is a
pity that the elaboratecostuming of
the chorus and several really good
scenic effects only serve to show up
the deficiencies of the cast. The ef-
fect in general is displeasing, and
contrasts unpleasantly with a num-
ber of musical skits seen at the play-
house in the past.
