G. R. SCHAEFFER COUNCIL CANDIDATESTO FILE PETmONS PAGE CONTINUES TOUNEARTH HURLERSThe new plan for the School ofCommerce and Administration, an¬nounced yesterday in The Daily Ma¬roon, has awakened much interestin the business world. The commentsof several well known leaders of busi¬ness are printed below.Mr. George R. Schaeffer, advertis¬ing manager of Marshall Field andCompany, gave his opinion of thecurriculum and business interneship:“This plan is very interesting, and Ibelieve it holds worth while possi¬bilities. The tieup between theSchool of Commerce and Administra¬tion and business is not yet as closea.« it should be.Expect Practical Training“Business men expect the Univer¬sity to give a man practical trainingfor business usefulness. The pro¬posed plan will give the undergrad¬uate a much better idea about therequirements of business, and shouldenable him to plan his work muchmore effectively. It should also bringabout a much better acquaintancebetween business men and collegeexecutives—an acquaintance whichshould prove mutually beneficial.”The opinion of Mr. Merrill C.Meigs of the American Weekly isthat “It is a particularly good planto give the business student an ideaof what he will meet in the businessworld. A college training cannotteach all that a mAn should know,and this can be accomplished in alarge measure by a business “in¬terneship”.“Will Develop Student”“Cutting the required work is an¬other wise move. It does a studentno good to take courses which hedoes not like, and he cannot do themjustice. It will now be possible forthe undergraduate to develop hisabilities along natural lines. If twocollege trained men applied to mefor positions, one with the ordinarybusiness training and the other witha training including an apprentice¬ship in business, there is no questionabout which one I would hire.”Mr. Benjamin F. Bills of the BillsRealty Company commented on thereorganized C&A system as follows:“My first impression is that the“business internship” should fall be¬tween the first and second years inthe school. This would enable theCommerce school to train the stu¬dent in fields in which he may bedeficient, and will give the student achance to aim his further studiesalong lines which will serve himbest.“Six Month Period Too Short”“I realize that difficulty in get¬ting firms to give positions to menfor «inly a six months’ period maybe encountered here, and this planmay not be practical for that reason.I feel a six months’ period mayshort for a man to learn much ofthe general problems of a business.He is only a freshman in the busi¬ness, and will not be in a position(Continued on page 4) April 14th is DeadlineFor NominationsTo Office“The plan. . . .holds worth whilepossibilities.”Brooks is Winner‘in Freshman TrackEfficiency ContestBeats Field of Sixty-ThreeWith Record Total of5650 PointsSetting a new mark for totalj points scored in the yearly Freshman' Indoor Track Efficiency contest,George Brooks stepped away from a! field of sixty-three competitors toI win the first place cup with the im¬pressive total of 6650 points, twen-j ty points better than the winningI score of Robert Bibb, champion last, year.Second of the five cups awardedwent ito John Roberta, who finishedwith a score of 6310, followed byTracy Calkins, Edward Nicholson,and Charles Tressler, winners of the; other three cups.

In a five inning contest yes¬terday afternoon the squad was di¬vided into two teams, which, i|i defer¬ence to the weather and for thesake, of names, were called the Es¬kimo “A’s” and the Eskimo “B’s”.Tilton was the winning pitcher in a4-3 game while an ex-all conferencefirst baseman toiled for the losers.Ted Curtiss, '20, pitching for thelosirjg Eskimos, was tapped for sixhits and four runs. While at theUniversity Curtiss played first baseon the team that toured Japan in1920. In addition he played on 1919-20 conference basketball championsand won the quarter mile run in theconference track meet.Tilton Gives Three HitsThe winning team, the Eskimo“B’s”, had Tilton and O’Meara fortheir battery. Tilton allowed threehits. His teammates in the infieldwere Olson, at first; Mandernack, atsecond; Juscius, at third; and ClaireJohnson, at short. Bill Olson hit thefirst home run of the season whenhe lead off in the third inning. Hepoled the ball deep into right centerfield. Johnson and O’Meara each gottwo hits. One of Johnson’s hits fellfor three-bagger. Henshaw, playingin left field got the other hit for theEskimo “A’s”. Wilkins and Buzzellmade up the rest of the fielding trio.Last-Inning Rally Falls ShortUrban. Cahill, and Mahoney, play¬ing in the field for the Eskimo “B’s”went hitless, as dfd Fish, who washolding down the initial sack.

Tu Fu, who lived from712 to 770 A. D., spent the first' half of his life at the imperial courtat Ch’ang An, now known as Sian.“In the first part of his reign,I the emperor brought prosperity andI order out of the chaos left by the! former empress,” said Miss Ays¬cough. “But as he grew older theemperor’s tastes turned more andI more towards luxury and riotousliving, so that at his death theI country was suffering from a depres¬sion induced by the imperial e3<trav-I agances.”According to Miss Ayscough, theI emperor’s downfall was due princi-■ (Continued on page 4) Cermaky Collins andThompson Speak inMandel Tonight at 8A.

Director DonaldMacDonald discussed the plot of theshow and outlined the parts open tothose trying out for the cast.Director MacDonald particularlystressed the enjoyment to be gainedby members of the chorus, sayingthat “the show could go on withoutthe individual members of the cast,but no Blackfriar show could be pro¬duced without the chorus.” In con-'cluding, he stated that all candidatesfor positions should make their ap¬pearance within the next week sothat active rehearsals could be start¬ed as soon as possible.Frank Calvin, abbot of the order,then introduced the members of thesenior and junior administrative bodyto the applicants, and explained thefunction of each one. He also statedthat cast members may hold admin¬istrative positions in addition to theirregular show work. Freshmen assist¬ants to the sixteen sophomore man¬agers will be announced shortly. In accordance with the great ex¬pansion of the University in recentyears, a new department, which willbe responsible for co-ordinating alldivisions of the University businessorganization having financial rela¬tions with the students, has beencreated. The existence of the de¬partment was made known in aI statement issued yesterday by JohnI F. Moulds, secretary of the BoardI of Trustees.The new- department will super-1 vise the management and operationI of residence halls for men and wom-1 en and student and faculty apart-' ments, the collection of studeRit fees,administration of students loans, de¬posit accounts, operation of th«I Housing bureau.

Three main agencies areaffected:The present Cashier’s office, whichhandles the payment of tuition andother student fees, loahs to students,student savings accounts, and pay-mei^ts for student service.I Commons, Hallsj The Commons and residence halls,j comprising five men’s dormitories,four women’s dormitories, and allj University dining rooms.

Photographic Eiditor IIII THE ACTIVITIES—THE CONSTITUTIONS IIWe concluded yesterday by saying that the solution of the jproblem of surplus and representation was the formulation of in- !dividual constitutions for the activities. We added that that solu- jtion was temporary and inadequate. It has set every activity ‘‘off |on the wrong foot”. We again base the reasons and the results on |a historical sketch: |First of all, the problem of surplus was not taken care of at jall by the constitutions in a sane and sensible manner. Instead ofkeeping the money in reserve and so insuring perpetually against apossible deficit, the constitutions gave the money outright to the ;managers and their assistants. That meant that the heads of the jactivities were practically the sole owners of their enterprise, inas- imuch as they received the major portion of the profits and wereliable for any deficit. Logically, then, if any activity could be con¬trolled solely by a student oligarchy it failed to be representative andshould henceforth not have been called a student activity.The results of this have never been truly realized. We hear |cries of student apathy, of student carelessness, of student failure.But what lies behind each of those all too frequent outbursts is adenunciation of the present haphazard system whereby a singleperson and his cohorts is the Captain Kidd of his field. Misman¬agement and outrageous hoodwinking of students and Universityhave resulted. Is it any wonder that students are apathetic?The role that the head of any activity plays today is that of arespectable pirate. He controls the money, and after his brief termof leadership is over, his concerns are terminated. The object,therefor, is to press the student body to the limit, to solicit adver¬tising by every possible means—no matter about the future—andthen to escape with as much of the surplus as good taste and apersistent auditor allow. There is absolutely no comeback on thepart of the average student under the manager’s influence. If thestudent does not fit into his scheme he is promptly dismissed andnothing can be said. The heads of the activities are the gods, and ^as long as the good name of the University is not used in vain, the 'pirate is high and dry in the sunshine.Furthermore, any progress that is made is of no value for thefuture. A new set of managers come into office, begin without apenny to their name, and hope eventually to leave with their pocketslined in gold. In other words, progress is not even possible—except such a modicum as can be accomplished within the boundsof single year. Thereafter the story is monotonously repeated. It ,is a disgusting process of marking time!Second, by allowing individual students to become parasites onthe student body in general, the University has not only graciously ;robbed itself of an excellent method of education, but also of anexcellent method of keeping faculty and students in touch witheach other. The profits of the activities—profits are certain, if theactivity is managed carefully—could be devoted to expansion ofthe activities and adequate housings for them. The activities them- jselves are positive drawing cards to desirable students and means Iof broadening the student once he gets here. Looking back now, :it is impossible to say that the University has acted wisely in the ^control of its activities. jAll these worries, these stragglings through the mire, and these irecurrent reforms have their source in this one original move. The ;constitutions—and hence the activities — have never really beenchanged despite the expected, annual housecleaning on the part ofthe various boards. The profit has always gone to the student; con- !sequently the activities have never become representative, nor havethey ever transcended the pirate class. Without an exception, they jare “grafts jNo genius has ever been able to devise a better system of keep- iing this toppling structure together than the boards that control theactivities from without.

None of these have beenplaced as yet; and according to Mr.Kennan, the quota of placements thisyear will be smaller than usual, dueto the business depression.That firms are still interested incollege men is attested by the factthat twenty-six women and twenty-three men who have graduated fromthe University were placed duringthe past year. The General Electriccompany of Schenectady; the Dicta¬phone company of New York; Fire¬stone company of Akron, Ohio; andthe Illinois Bell Telephone companyare all offering college trainingcourses with prospective positions.
