President-emeritus James B. Angell
will be the principal speaker at the
Arbor Day exercises to be held on the
campus this afternoon at 4:06. The
elm tree from Mt. Vernon, the old
home of President Washington, that
was donated to the university
by the Sarah Caswell Angell chapter
of the Daughters of the American Rev-
olution, will be planted, accompanied
by appropriate ceremonies.
The tree will be located in the tri-
angle in front of the law building, and
will be situated in a direct line with
the other elm that is a seedling of the
Washington elm at Cambridge, undch
which the general first took command
of the Continental army. The location
of the tree was decided by Mr. Aubrey
Tealdi, of the faculty, and Mrs. G. W.
Patterson, of the local chapter of the
D. A. R.

menu will be provided and special
music will be furnished by the Hotel

In securing Mayor Brand Whitlock,

of Toledo, and United States Justice I

particularly pleased. Mayor Whitlock
is an author, journalist and municipal
reformer, and is one of the foremost
public men in the country today.
"Bill" 'Day, as he is affectionately
called by Michigan men throughout
the land, is one of the youngest men
who ever sat upon the federal bench.

Portion of Old Medic Landmark to be
Left for Shop Purposes.
A large force of men began work
yesterday morning to raze the west-
ern end of the old medical building.
This portion of the structure was
almost totally destroyed by fire last
August, and the Board of Regents, at
a recent meeting, voted to remove the
demolished section. The eastern and
oldest part of the building will be left
as it now stands and will be used as
a plumb.ing and tool shop. The site
where the destroyed section stands
will be entirely cleared before the
Anniversary Celebration.

Purdue Professor Draws Lessons
From Spanish War.
"There would have been no Spanish
war if the United States had had four
more battleships at the time," declar-
ed Prof. L. D. Rowell, of Purdue, in an
illustrated lecture on "The Modern
Battleship," before the Engineering
society last night.
"Those battleships might have cost
20 million dollars; we have already
paid 600 millions for that war, and we
are not through yet."
Speaking of the progress in gunnery
since the civil war, Prof. Rowell said
that, at point-blank range, the Mon-
itor fired about seven tons of shells,
half of which were hits, in a four
hour's engagement; in recent practice,
a modern American battleship has fir-
ed approximately the same amount of
metal in eight shots, making eight hits
on a target six miles away, and small-
er than'the Merrimac, in less than two
minutes. According to Prof. Rowell,
such gunnery makes war too deadly to
be possible.
Dr. A. S. Warthin, of the medical
department, has been elected presi-
dent of the International Association
of Medical Museums. He will preside
at the next meeting of the association,
which will be held in London, Eng-
land, in August, 1913.
