Board of Visitors Spends day Among
"I would express great admiration
over the appearance of that part of
the campus which we visited yester-
day," said Mr. Herbert Dow, of Mid-
land, chairman of the State Board of
Visitors, which commenced its annual
inspection of the university grounds
and buildings yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Dow, Mr. Walter S. Russell, of,
Detroit, and Mr. J. W. Mauck, presi-
dent of Hillsdale College, who consti-
tute the board, arrived in the city
yesterday noon and, with the assist-
ance of President Hutchins and Sec-
retary Smith, started their work im-
mediately. The medical building, the
new engineering building and Memo-
rial hall were carefully looked over.
Tomorrow the remaining buildings
will be examined and the grounds will
be observed more closely.

Fate of Burned Medical Structure left
to Them.
The Board of Regents at their next
monthly meeting, will decide the fate
of the Old Medical Building. The
questions which they will answer are:
is this structure to be r ebuilt, or is it
to be permanently destroyed?
Last spring, the authorities consid-
ered the removal of the building which
was practically useless. The protes-
tations of the alumni who had take:i
their courses in this building were
loud. It was then that a campaign
was planned to raise funds for reno-
vation. In all, something over two
thousand dollars was subscribed.
However, this campaign received a
sudden shock, when on August 15, this
structure for which these funds were
being collected was almost totally de-
stroyed by fire. The alumni then ap-
pointed a committee to confer with
the Board of Regents. This committee'
has submitted to the Board a request
that the building shall not be removed
and it is probable that the Regentst
will permit the building to stand. l

"As we were on the campus but a
short time, we are hardly in the po-
sition yet to formulate any decided
opinions," said 'Mr. Dow. "But I will
say that we have met with nothing
so far that would tend to create any
criticism on our part.
"A.new board is created every year,
so this is our first official visit to the
University. In this inspection we are
becoming familiar with parts of the
school which we never had the pleas-

siderable time looking over the big
naval testing tank. It is certainly
an invaluable asset to the Engineer-

o'clock. From all knowledge, his rest
during the night was undisturbed.
About 6:15 Tuesday morning, Charles
A. Bowman, Lamb's roommate, was
awakened by the sound of heaxy
breathing coming from Lamb's bed.
Alarmed, he tried to awaken him but
could not do so. Calling in a number
of fraternity brothers, a general anx-
iety was aroused when the seriousness
of the affair was realized. Dr. C. M.
Kline, who lives in the same block,'
was summoned, but before he could
arrive, Lamb expired.
His parents were at once notified
and they arrived yesterday, accon-
panied by his sister, Louise, and n.
E. Packard, an intimate friend of
Lamb's, and a classmate of his in the
university last year.

When Director Bartelme talked with
Coach Macklin of the M. A. C. team
over the telephone Monday, he told,
Mr. Macklin that he thought the high
prices would greatly decrease the
number of Michigan students making
the trip to Lansing. Coach Macklin
expressed concern at this and stated
that he would see if something could
be done to adjust the matter. Yester-
day morning he called Director Bar-
telme by 'phone and told him that the
special students' price had been made.

Freddie Ross, Varsity sprinter,)
packed his suit case last evening and,
making his adieu, left the university
and Ann Arbor. Ross declared that
he had found the difficulties in the
way of his remaining here this year
unsurmouritable. He left in search of
remunerative employment and, if he
is able to secure a position by which
he can support himself. and attend
school, he expects to return.
Ross was one of the leading sprint-
ers at the 1911 Intercollegiate games
and with many of his former rivals out
of school he loomed large as a point
winner for 1912.

Donald A. Kahn, a former member
of The Michigan Daily staff, has just
published the first number of a humor-
ous magazine entitled "the Joy Book."
Mr. Kahn holds the editorship of the
new publication with headquarters at
South Bend, Ind. The book is brought
out every month and has a local cir-
culation. However, the management

throughout the country. While in
college Mr. Kahn achieved some note

publications and as author of Koanza-
land, the Michigan Union opera in

the journalistic profession.
