-When the party returned to civiliza-
tion, by -Dr. Hofma's direction Mr.
Wellman went to a famous English
hospital to secure needed rest. Ex-
plorer Wellman was about 45 miles
from the camp when he injured his
leg, but went over 50 miles farther
before returning to his companions.
The injury was not serious at the out-
set,. but required immediate medical
attendance, which, of course, it did
niot receive.
Dr. Hofma believes the pole will be
reached. He agrees fully with Nan-
sen's theory, that drifting is the most
certain way of reaching the pole, but
says that course requiresat least three
yeas's' time. A quick dash on foot.
with sledges drawn by dogs carrying
necessary provisions, is, thedoctor
thinks, perfectly. feasible., The at-
tempt must, -of course, be made by
the right man at the right time, and
under the right conditions.
As scientist of the party, Dr. Hofma
made a fine collection of animal and
plant life, which he turned over to the
Natural History Society of. New. York
city. The doctor also brought quite a
number of curiosities and specimens
home with him,
Asked as to whether he was in im-
minent personal danger at any time,
the doctor declared that he had a very
trying experience in a too heavily la-
den canvas boatwhich filled in spite of
his utmost efforts to pump it out. His
situation was exceedingly unpleasant
for a time.
Dr. Hofma declared that he might
again visit the polar regions.,
Prof. Bemis Tonight in. Universityi
The second lecture in the Good Gov-
ernment Club lecture course will be

lems." Dr. Bemis though a compara-
tively young man has come into con-

The gymnasiums were built without
cost to the state. The City of Ann
Arbor contributed $25,000- towards the
hospitals and $17,000 for the site of
the homeopathic hospital which is now
building and which has not been in-
cluded in the above figures. When com-.
pleted this hospital (including (site) will
have cost between $80,000 and $90,000.
With this addition the grand total of
permanent improvements since 1889 will
amount to over $600,000.
Third Facultq Concert Given Last
The third in the series of faculty con-
certs of the School of Music was given
last night. The concert hall was filled
but many of the audience were late
in arriving. The program was well
selected and rendered in a finished
manner. Prof Lamson's rendition of
"Nazarth" by Gounod was the best
received. The second number by Profs.
Jonas, Sturm and Abel was a popular
one and warmly greeted by the. audi-
enlce. As a whole the concert.was de-
serving of more appreciation than it
received. The audience seemed to'be
seized of a chill and could not be drawn
out of it to any considerable extent.
The following program was rendered:
Trio for piano, violin and cello. Op.
15, No. 1......... ....A. Rubinstein
Con Moto-Moderato-Finale.
Alberto Jonas, Bernard Sturm, Fred-
erick Abel.
Prologue, "Pagliacci," ....Leoncavallo

cello. Op. 29....... Niels W. Gade

Dr. Spitzle4 Working to Secure
' - '- Them.
Dr. Spitzley, the city physician, ap-
peared before the- council recently and
reported on his efforts to secure two
free beds in the University hospital.
He said the board of regents objected
to any wording in a petition or order
which indicated in any way that the
city had been promised at the time of
its gifts of $25,000 two free beds. The
regents claimed the popular impression
was erroneous, as no promise had ever
been made by the board. Dr. Spitzley
believed the board would substantially
give what was desired, but not in a
way that would bind any further than
was to the advantage of the medical
department: The councii gave- Dr.
Sptzley a vote of confidencee .

Porto Ricans in Pharmacq Depart.
PortoRico has two students nowin
the School of :Pharmacy.- They re
both from the pharmaceutical house of
Fidel Guilermety, at San Juan, the
largest on the island. employing about
fifteen chemists, pharmacists and as-
sistants, in a business of thirty years'
standing. A son of the proprietor is
one of those now studying in Ann Ar-
bor. He is a graduate of the Univer-
sity of Barcelona in Spain, as B.A.
1895. He says at Barcelona the mod-
ern language study Is confined to
French, while at the institute in Porto
Rico,- where he previously studied,
English and German were taught as
well as French. The other of these
chemical students is Mr. del Valle, a
ward of Fidel. Guilermety. His prep-
aratory studies were at the San Juan
institute. Both these men have worked
iin pharmacy.
