The Daily congratulates the Athletic
Association os its choice of officers.
The fact that personal jealousies and
factional divisions were laid aside and
the election o fficers n ad practic-
ally unanimous, shows that the proper
spirit exists amsng the members of
this foremost University organization.
In bestowing the highest student honor
in the Univerity otn Mr. H. J. Wein-
stein, the Daily feels that the associa-
tion made no mistake. Under is care
as president, Mirhigatn athletic inter-
ests will flosrish even more than they
have in the past. The right man is
certainly in the right place.
Dr. Breakey's Lecture.
The following report of Dr. Breakey's
lecture was unfortunately mislaid last
veek, but we venture to publish it at
this late date because of its interest-
ing relations to contemporaneous
Dr. Breakey, of the medical faculty,
delivered an interesting leot ire on the
duties of the surgeon in the army and
navy before the medical department a
week ago Saturday evening. The lec-
ture was given at the request of the
senior class and proved unusually in-
teresting in view of our present rela-
tions with Spain. Dr. Breakey spoke
from experience, having served as sur-
geon in the war, being on -the hospital
etaff at Gettysburg, Alexandria and
The medical department was well rep-
resented in the medical corps In the
army and navy in the late Civil war,
furnishing 6 men.
The military surgeon is generally con-
sidered a non-combattant. Still the re-
cords show that there were 409 who lost
their lives in the Civil war, due to
wounds pr the fatal termination of dis-
eases incidental to camp life.
The surgeon not only cares for the
wounded but must also look after the
health of the general army. He mut
decide as to the fitness of the na for
duty. His reports fornm the basis foa
determining the actual strength of the
forces, as well as furnish valuable re-
cords for the government.
The examinations for appointment in
required to pass other examinations
which are equivalent to those required
for entrance to :oost colleges and uni-
versities. To this fact may be attrib-
uted the unusually high standard which
is maintained in the medical staffs of
bOtth the army and navy.
At present there are about thirty va-
cancies in the navy while in the army
there are but three or four. The rank-
itng of the lower grades of medical iof-
ficers in the navy, which is lower thant
is the army, may account for this. In
the navy the assistant surgeon corres-
ponds is rank to the second lieutenant;
in the army his grade is that of a first
lieutenant. In general the medical men
ir. the navy have not received the re-
cognition due them and are excluded
from the social and official associations
to which their education and profession
The longer lease of life enjoyed in
the navy, especially in the force afloat,
is due to the stringent sanitary super-
vision, in spite of the hardships and ex-
posures incident to the seaman's occu-
pation, is shown by a compatison of
mortalities. In the navy the mortality
is five in a thousand, while in the or-
dinary community it is ov r twenty.
The salaries in the army and navy
are practically the same. The surgeon-
general receives $5,000 a year, the sur-
geon $3,000, and the assistant surgeon
After the lecture Drs. Vaughan, Dock,'
Nancrede and Carrow made a few re-
Dr. Dock called attention to the need
of especial consideration of yellow fever
and malaria, which would be of espe-
cial interest in the event of our forces
making a landing in Cuba.
Dr. Nancrede referred to the probabil-
ity that all the present ideas in regardI
to gunshot wounds would be changed,
should there be an opportunity to learn
what the modern missiles can do. There
would probably be but few such wounds
to treat. Most of thet would prove
fatal at once.
