COLLEGE DIRECTLY SERVED
80,000 PERSONS LAST YEAR.
Official Pamphlet to Legislature and
Citizens of State is
Through the extension lectures, hos-
pitals, clinics, and laboratories more
thian 80,000 people of the state are di-
rectly served by the University of
Michigan every year. The extent of
these different branches of work has
been made public in a bulletin of in-
formation just published and address-
ed to the legislature and the people
of the state.
During the year ending June 30,1911,
thereweret2,791 patients received and
treated at the two hospitals. Many of
these persons would be public burdens
had it not been for the free treatment
which they were enabled to secure
here in the hospitals. The only ex-
penses are nominal charges for bard
Andhmediine and for extra nursing
when necessary; as operations, pro-
fessional treatment, and care in the
wards is free to all patients.
The pasteur institute has treated
1,058 persons for the prevention of hy-
drophobia since its establishment in
1908, and there has not been a single
((ath from any of the case treated
The dental department, in clinics
and demonstrations, annually treats
more than 4,500 patients without any
expense other than for materials.
The various laboratories of the uni-
versity serve the public in a variety of
ways. By the sanitary analysis of
drinking water, epidemics have been
prevented in many Micligan cities,
and the det. rate of the state is thus
materially lowered. Analysis of foods
and drugs is also made without charge
under certain conditions, and this ser-
vice is widely used. In the chemical
laboratory, tests of clay soils are made
for the State Geological survey.
The museum cooperates with the
schools of the state, having given tn
collections aggregating 1,000different
sppcimens to different institutions in
the past four years
The engineering department main-
tins a highway laboratory for the
testing of rod mterials, the service
beipg performed for necessary expen-
ses, This laboratory is identical to
the one mlaintained by the government
at Washington. A sanitary laboratory
for the benefit of the public is also be-
ing planned by this department.

PANHELLENIC IS UNABLE TO
DECIDE PLEDGING QUESTION
One Faction Wants Gradual Changes;
Others Desire Immediate
Panhellenic, the inter-sorority coun-
cil, met again Tuesday to discuss the
question of pledging freshmen. While
no definite conclusion was reached,
owing to outstanding committee re-
ports, there seems to be two distinct
veiws of the matter among the women.
One view prefers a gradual adoption
of pledge limitations, leading up to a
time when no woman shall be pledged
until her sophomore year. The other
view is that it would be better, and
probably fairer, to legislate definitely
on the matter. The fact that the uni-
versity administration has been con-
siderate enough to leave the proposi-
tion entirely in the hands of the Pan-
hellenic, is one of the reasons urged to
, take action as soon as practicable.
Michigan1, it seems, is unique in its
e sorority question in that the dormi-
tory system in vogue at most other
- colleges is but prospective here, With
the advent of dormitories, it is claimed,

to Rehearse Tonight.
Active work for the costuming of
"Contrarie Mary" was commenced last
night. Mrs. Robert Houston, profes-
sional costumer, who has garbed the
manly forms in every Michigan Union
play for five years, was present at the
regular rehearsal held at the Union,
and the measures of some of the chor-
usmen were taken.
All new costumes will be used in
the 1913 production. Not a remnant
of the old gowns and incidental par-
aphernalia has been saved, and shoes,
hose, skirts ad infinitum will be made
especially for this year's show.
The scenery for "Contrarie Mary" is
now being painted on the frames of
the Detroit Opera house, and will be
completed several days before the date
of the first performance. Two sets
will be used, one representing the ex-
terior of an old English inn and the
other the depleted hallway of a ruined
A call was issued yesterday for the
Glee club men who are to take part in
the opening and closing choruses to be
present at last night's rehearsal, but
only a few attended. A second prac-
tice of men filling these roles will be
held at the Union at 7:00 o'clock this
PROF. ZOWSK'S TURBiNE
BREAKS ALL PAST RECORDS
Expects to Improve Engine as Result
of Tests Made at Holyoke
Prof. S. J. Zowski, of the mechanical
engineering department, received
word yesterday from the public test-
ing station at Holyoke, Mass., that the
new high speed, high power water tur-
bile which he designed last summer,
had again broken all records for effi-
The former high efficiency record of
turbines of this type was held by the
wheel which Prof. Zowski designed a
year ago. This machine developed an
efficiency of 89.37 per cent, an excess
over the power which had been de-
veloped up to that time of over 40 per
cent. With the new wheel the power
was further increased and the best ef-
ficiency reached the value of 90.1 per
"The results show," said Prof. Zow-
ski, "That I am not yet through with
my work of driving the power of a
turbine to a commercial limit." He is
already considering plans for improv-
ing the present design.

TRYOUTS FOR FRESH-3f. A. C.
STRUGGLE ARE HELD AT GYM
Although Eight First Year Candidates
Are Ineligible, Situation is
Few surprises were sprung yester-
day afternoon when Trainer Farrell
posted the names of the track athletes
to represent Michigan in the Syracuse
indoor meet Saturday, at Syracuse.
Only one man is to be carried for the
dash and one for the hurdles, but in-
stead of a single contestant in the half
mile and pole vault, two men in each
of these events will make the trip.
The team leaves at 9:30 o'clock this
evening, occupying a special sleeper,
and will arrive in Syracuse at 11:00
o'clock tomorrow morning.
Some of the chosen 14 made their
places as the result of their showing
in the trials which Trainer Farrell
held yesterday. It was due to this op-
portunity that Jansen qualified in the
The following names were posted
on the bulletin board with the vets
assigned to lower berths and the re-
cruits in the lofts: Capt. Haff, Craig,
Kohler, Sargent ,Haimbaugh, H. Smith,
Baier, C. M. Smith, Carver, Seward,
Cook, Daskam, W. H. White, and Jan-
Trainer Farrell is certain that Laps-
ley, the colored sprinter, would have
had a place if he were not disabled
with a strained tendon. His leg was
weak before the Varsity meet, but
seemed well enough to admit his run-
ning, and he felt no ill effects from it
until Tuesday. Daskam's consistent
performances in the pole vault entitled
tim to make the journey, as he clears
11 feet with regularity. Jansen, be-
sides showing well for the relays,
made fast time in the half mile.
A light work out will be given the
men this afternoon, and they will have
one more chance to stretch their limbs
before the meet, when they practice on
the Syracuse track, Friday afternoon.
In the short time they will have, the
men will try to make themselves as
familiar with the turns 'of the strange
,track as possible. In this difference
of track, Syracuse will have a strong
advantage over the Wolverines.
During the absence of the Varsity
athletes, the freshmen will be cocks
of the walk in Waterman gym, and all
the rubbing privileges will be extended
to them in preparation for their meet
with the Varsity of M. A. C. Saturday.
It is a prevalent idea on the campus
that the fresh squad has been crippled
by the ineligibility of eight of their
candidates, that the coming meet
would be a farce, This is not exactly
the case, for though the team will not
be so strong as expected, with 25
youngsters of promising ability to picl
from, the situation is by no means a
The majority of tryouts were held
yesterday, and the following men
will probably appear in the list of en-
tries:.Capt. H. L. Smith, Monetta, Lyt-
tIe, Shulkin, Darnall, Gore, Uffer, Fox

fer, Page, Maguire,, Cross, Catlett,Chat-

The above named hockey teams are'
the choice of The Michigan Daily sport'
staff for a first and second all-star
lineup, picked from the four depart-
mental sevens. The men given posi-
tions upon the first aggregation in
some cases may not be the -best indi-
vidual players, but from all the men
performing in the four league teams,
these seven are believed to be the best
seven to work together as a team.
The literary team was especially
strong this season in the wing posi-
tions and anyone who followed the
games carefully realized that in Cohen
they had by far the best man in his
position that skated on the rink. Hunt-
ing and Spring of the same squad, and
Raatz on the boilermakers' list were
in about the same class. Spring was
given the decision over the other two
on account of his superior ability to
use the stick on both sides.
For the center position, Doyle and
King were picked on the consistency
of their work during the entire
schedule. Doyle was placed on the
first choice seven on account of his
speed and dodging ability. Wharton
and Morrison were' easily the logical
man, for the rover jobs, the former
having a shade the advantage of the
latter in making his strokes find the
Warrel and Beuerile won their re-
spective positions at point and cover
point with, no opposition. The two
science men were by far the best pair
of puck chasers that have performed
upon the local rinks. Healy and Mc-
Leod both played strong games
throughout the season and are deserv-
ing of being placed second only to the
two science men.
The goal job gave the hardest prop-
osition to solve. Carpenter and Bar-
num both played phenomenal games
' protecting the net, and it was nearly a
toss up to decide which should be giv-
en the decision. Carpenter finally
swung the vote owing to the fact that
he played the defensive position upon
a team that played on the defense
in most of the battles, so it was he
who played the greater part of their

Changes in the requisites for de-

ment yesterday. The new catalog

The number of courses offered has
been changed from 14 to 26, and the
required number of hours credit a
semester have been increased from
20 to 30. These increases will neces-
sitate a reduction in the lit studies,

quired heretofore have been dropped.
