ADAMS DISCUSSES
LABORATORY TESTS
OF PERSONALITi

I

SUBJECT OF PSYCHOLOGIST IS
QUALITIES OF JUDGE OF
PERSONALITY
TESTS DIFFICULT
Belleves That Personality Is Image
Of Individuality In The hind
Of Another Person
Prof. Henry F. Adams of the Psych-
ology department in a lecture deliv-
ered yesterday in the Natural Science
expressed the belief that individuality
is the sum of a person's physical,
mental, emotional, and social traits.
One's personality is the image of this
individuality, as reflected in the mind
of another, said Professor Adams.
His subject was "The Qualities of a
Good Judge of Personality". During
his talk he explained carefully the
methods used in his laboratory to de-
termine a means of measuring person-
ality..
Five Clawses of Traits
An individual's trait may be divided
into flve general classes, physical,
mental, emotional, volitional, and so-
cial. A trait Professor Adams de-
fined as a characteristic mode of re-
sponse, or characteristic manner of
being. Measurement of many of these
traits is exceedingly difficult.
Physical characteristics such as
height, weight, or complexion are
easily determined. Mental traits can
he estimated, though not very ac-
curately. by means of grades, or men-
tal tests. However, the judgment of
emotions is a more serious problem.
Percentage measurements do not
work out well, so a comparitive scale
is used. That is, the persons in a
group are rated in order of their
standing in regard to each other on
any particular trait.
Used Groups of Ten
In conducting the experiment, Pro-
fessor Adams used groups of ten stu-
dents who had lived in one house or
else had worked in one line of student
activity for at least a year. These
students rated themselves and each
other on 63 subjective traits, and 14
physical characteristics. Examples
are; industrious or lazy; obstinate or
reasonable; touchy or good humored;
quick or slow (mentally); blond or
brunette; forehead high or low. The
first in the list received a score of 1,
others in order up to ten. Each stu-
dent made two complete ratings, at an
interval of four weeks.
Results Analyzed
Analysis of the results revealed
many points of interest. The correla-
tion between the first and second
scores made by each individual was
7rery high, particularly on objective
traits. Correlation of individual wit
individual varied according to the trait
under consideration, being best on
physical and objective characteristics.
Correlation between individual scores
and the average of all reports was
rather poor. Last, the ability shown
by the students to judge themselves
was slightly above chance.
The final results showed, Professor
Adams said, that the opinion of any
one individual is not a good measure
of another's personality; but that of a
group, perhaps of ten to twenty, af-
fords a highly accurate measure.
People of strong social tendencies are
good judges of themselves; and in-
dlependent, homewhat self-centered in-
dividuals make the most critical esti-
mates of others. When the results
are completely worked out there will
probably be found some eight or nine
traits that are fundamental and serve
as the foundation for all others. Per-
severence, fore-sight, and mental
alertness are among these.

Class Of '30
To Be Large
As Past Ones
. According to a statement given out
yesterday by the Registrar's office the
prospects are that the enrollment of
freshmen in September will show
about the normal increase despite the
fact that the new system of admittance
will be inaugurated at that time,
This is the first year that the newI
system of questionnaries will be put
into practice and indications are that
the number admitted will not be ma-
terially affected.
The freshman class in the fall us-
ually consists of about 1800 or 1900
students. Registration this fall will
start September 21 and the regular
semester will commence Tuesday
morning, the 28th.

DEVELOPMENT
TRACES GROWTH
Cites Certain Foods Which May Give
Remedy For Irregular Teeth
Of Coming Generation
"The children of the coming gen-
eration are doomed to have irregular
teeth," said Dr. Russel W. Buntin,
professor in the college of Dentistry,
in his lecture yesterday afternoon in
the Dental amphitheatre. The le-
ture was supplemented by a number f
slides illustrating work done in de-
tal surgery.
Dr. Bunting first spoke of two com-
monly known abnormalities occurin ;
in children, those of hair-lip and cleft
palate. These mal-formations, ie e
plained, are due not to an insufficient '
of tissue but to the failure of the pro-
cesses in the development of face and
'mouth to unite the tissues in harmoi-
ious relationship. This condition can
best be attributed to traumatic injury
to the embryo before birth, whici
might interfere with the union of pro-
cesses.
Child's Teeth Discussed
Disturbances in the development of
teeth were next discussed by Dr.
Bunting. In normal growth the child's
teeth should come through in sets of
4, with intervals of rest between.
Sometimes, however, more than four
develop at the same time, causing un-
due stress and consequently producing
all manner of bodily disorders.
Teeth develop in various stages of
perfection, Dr. Bunting went on to ex-
plain. Our first set of teeth is formed
largely before birth, the second set
entirely after birth. Of pre-natal
conditions we have but little control,
but there is hope of improving the
condition of the teeth later on. When
the child's first set of teeth is bad, it
is usually because he has had poor
prenatal nut4:ition and .metabolism.
A large number of such cases are due
to mental instability or syphallitic in-
dection existent in the family. Most
children however, are born with a
good set of first teeth.
Speaks on Teeth Arrangement
Concerning the arrangement of
teeth in the mouth, Dr. Bunting said,
"The majority of people today have
teeth which vary from the normal or
ideal arrangement. This faulty form-
ation is due to an insufficient develop-
ment of the jaw to provide room for
the number of teeth which nature de-
ternmines for us. Our jaws and faces
are tending to elongate and our bones
to become smaller and more delicate
along with civilization and its arti-
ficial diet. This generation is develop-
ing irregular teeth and distorted faces,
getting farther and farther away
from the normal arrangement. The
crowding of teeth creates yxcessive
pressure and consequently causes
liervous disorders."
Advises Calcium and Vitamin Foods
"We can help counteract this tend-
ency," D. Bunting concluded, "by see-
ing that the child has enough calcium
and vitamin foods to build an adequate
bone, by giving him foods which will
exercise his jaw and stimulate the
bones to grow, and by keeping the first
teeth as long as is necessary to in-
sure ample roomfor the permanent
ones."
Camp Celebrates
Michigan Day will be celebrated in
Camp Custer this year by a special
program for visitors to the camp. It
will be held on July 30. Major-Gener-
al Wilson and many relatives of the
present members of the camp are ex-

pected to be present for the celebra-
tion.
A, part of the program proffered to
the visitors will be a testing of the
Lability of some of the regiments. A
ball game between two company teams
for the Fort Wayne Championship
will be played in the afternoon.
Australia plans an automobile fac-
tory, started with $12,500,000 capital
and backed by the government.

As a gentleman in last night's audi-
ence remarked with more truth than
elegance, "these players have been
holding out on us." Essentially he I
was right. "Great Catherine", "Sweet-
hearts", "Belinda", "The Doctor", all
seem frothy nonentities in comparison
to the glamour, the beauty, the sheerj
poetry of "The Haiduc." It is cer-

derson succeeded in precisely this,
and literally carried an at-first skepti-
cal audience by storm. His perform-
ance was one of varyint shades, and
moods, magnificently colored, sutl
respondenit to an almost tragic syim-
phony, rising to a climax in a never-
to-be-forgotten scene in what the pro-
grant too prosaically calls "a lonely
place in the Dobrudja prairies'', tiid
which Maeterlinck would probably
have termed the "vale of death." This
scene represents the finest actiig we
hope to see in many a day.
The large cast is excellent. Amy
Ioomis as Andreia carries her role in
a mood subdued but mightily effective.
William Bishop as Neagoe, is a perfect
villain, a malevolent, crafty. His act-j
ing in the second scene calls for the
highest praise, melodrama mnagniti-
cently done. The work of the other
performers, and the play itself ,de-
mands more than these cursory re-
marks. But time and space permit us
to but express the hope that everyone
who cares for what is truly fine in the
