all of which are little disturbed.
The mound was opened by slicing
and each shovelful thoroughly inspected. They found post molds
and vertical cavities three to nine

mound was covered with ashes. Seventeen graves were located, some
with perfect skeletons, but In general the bones represent individuals

FIFTH TRAINING
GIVEN

Dr. Floyd W. Reeves, Head of
State Bureau of School
Service, Discusses "Problems of College Teaching."
The Development of Student In
terest, "Initiative and Responsibility
and Provision for Individual Differences," was the subject of the fifth
lecture on "Problems of College
Teaching," given by Dr. Floyd
Reeves, professor of education and
head of the bureau of school service, at 6:30 in the lecture room of
McVey hall last night.
The last lecture scheduled to be
given on the night of March 28 will
be postponed, due to the spring vacation, until Thursday, April 4, at
which time Dr. Reeves will speak
on "Diagnosis, Remedial Instruction
and Educational Guidance."
In his talk last night Dr. Reeves
divided his discussion into five main
topics. According to Dr. Reeves,
Within the last few years consid
erable dissatisfaction has developed
with the type of work carried on in
American liberal arts colleges. The
criticism includes the admission of
large numbers of students
of
average or mddiocre ability,
lack of any real test of intellectual achievement after students have been admitted, and an
unsatisfactory curriculum. As a result of thes conditions the college
has, in the judgment of many educators, become an institution for the
average student and has tended to
develop indifference and laziness on
the part of many of those members
of the student body who are blessed
with superior ability. Dr. Reeves
cited the honors course at Swarth-mor- e
College as an example of an
excellent program, saying that one
of the most promising changes
which has taken place in American
colleges and universities Is the in
troduction of the honors course.

Away back in those days when

mythology held sway among tho
learned Greeks, Achilles was the
popular hero, the man of the hour.
His valiant heart, his flcctness of
foot were the medium by which he
placed his name on the Hps of
everyone. Even the respected philosophers paid tribute to this superman.
But Achilles In all his glory could
not surpass the mighty speed chim-plo- n
of the University, whoever he
may be. This first event will be
may be. This gentleman will earn
his spurs in the annual intra-mur- al
spring track meet which will take
place on Stoll field tomorrow afternoon. This first event will be called
at 1 o'clock sharp.
There Is no doubt but that the
meet tomorrow will be the best in
lntra-mur- al
history. The eligibil
ity bans have been lifted and every
one, including members of the varsity and freshman cinder squads at
present, can compete. This was
done in an attempt to get varsity
material In training earlier and
from the number of men working
dally, this effort was most successful.
The entry list, which is a most
important item in an affair like
this, will be closed at noon today,
so all desiring to compete are hereby
warned to have their names on the
dotted line before that time. Most
of the fraternities have already got
ten their group entries in the hands
of the officials.
The spring relays last year were
won by the Sigma Chi fraternity
by a narrow margin. Pi Kappa Alpha swung into second place with
several other organizations close
ic
represenbehind. The
tatives have been in strenuous
training for the past three weeks
and .promise to make the competition equally sharp this year. A numrecords are
ber of
sure to be smashed before the day
is over.
Not to be outdone by the varsity
coaches, M. E. Potter, intra-mur- al
director, has arranged a genuine,
track meet. Fourteen
events comprise the program for the
day and cover every field known to
track enthusiasts. Field events, runs,
ranging from the mile down to the
hundred yard dash, and a frater
nity relay will be decided. Ribbons
will be awarded to the first four
men in each race in addition to
points toward the participation
trophy.
A silver loving cup is the reward
for the winning team in the relay.
A larger trophy will be given to the
victorious fraternity team and the
high point man of the meet will be
recognized for his success and prowess by another cup. Coach Shively
and Bart Peak will head the list
of officials and will probably be
aided by the other members of the
coaching staff who will act as field
judges, timers, starters, and what
not.
DATE

FOR BANQUET FIXED

The date chosen for the annual
women's banquet has been fixed for
April 11, by Lucille Short, president
W. A. C. The banquet Is sponsored
by the Women's Administrative
Council, and the previous ones have
been very successful.
The place for the banquet has not
been determined, but plans are rapidly nearing completion.

New Building Is Not for Deans
Monkeys, Kernel Writer Finds

By Sara Elvove
For some time, the University students, chancing to see the building
being erected behind Mechanical
hall, have been wondering what this
new addition to the campus is destined to contain. From the appearance it now has, it resembles a
greenhouse. But perhaps as some
one facltiously suggested, it is the
new home of Dean Anderson's monkeys. Here are the real facts about

it:
The College of Engineering has
been endowed, by Percy H. Johnson,
president of the Chemical National
Bank, of New York, with a research
laboratory, for the purpose of carrying on the effect of sunlight on
plants and animals. This is to be
made in connection with the atmospheric comfort zone already established here by Dean Anderson.
During the years 1921 to 1924,
there was developed by the American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers, what Is known as
the "atmospheric comfort zone for
human beings" that is, an idealism
In atmospheric air conditions that
will produce the greatest comfort
to human beings, and therefore, the

greatest longevity.
Since the sun is the source of
nil our energies, it is proposed in
the laboratory now under construction, to study the direct effect on
plants and animals of ultra-violrays. In this laboratory the prob-- i
lem of developing new mediums for
allowing the passage of ultra-violrays, is contemplated.
Rooms will be provided with a
great variation in degrees of temperature and humidity which will be
controlled automatically throughout
the 24 hours of the day. The value
of artificial sunlight will also be
studied. There will be housed within
the laboratory a great variety of
plants, growing In various degrees
of temperature. Not only will plants
, and
animals be under observation,
but human beings as well.
The building will be ready for use
in about six weeks, according to an
announcement, but the use of the
laboratory itself will go on indefinitely. If it Is possible to solve
some of the problems affecting the
health and longevity of humans,
civilization will be under lasting obligations to Dean Anderson, his assistants, and those people who will
carry out this research work.
