WILL ATTEMPT TO

te Centuries of the English Novel
By Harold. Williams (823 W 72).
-istories of the English novel have
m frequent the last few decades"
I this volume seems to be super-
is. It does not add anything of in-
est to the accounts of the various
at authors from DeFoe to the pres-
t time, of which the book treats..
ctrinal criticism has been avoided
the belief that the novel is not
subject .of constitutional govern-
nt nor the slave of precedent.
T'he arrangement and proportion
en to the different authors seems
be more admirably carried out than
previous works on this subject.
.t, sometimes, minor authors have
en given more than their just allot-
mt and some of the greater names
.o have been elaborated too fully

Scarcity of Chemicals, Due To War in
Europe, Induces Move For
Government Aid
Owing to the scarcity of chemicals
and other laboratory supplies as a re-
sult of the war, the University of
Michigan, along with other American
universities and industrial institu-
tions, is making an attempt to have
the state department at Washington
bring about an.understanding with the
belligerents Wyhereby commercial re-
lations with Germany may be rees-
tablished for trade in articles that
are declared not to be contraband of
war.
At present, cargoes valued at sev-
eral hundred thousand dollars are
lyinig idle at Hamburg and Bremen,
awaiting some means of being trans-
ported to their destination. With the
mining of the North Sea, Germany's
harbors have been rendered practi-
cally useless to commerce, and the
only method by which shipments are
being sent to the United States is
through the medium of some neutral
port. This method is almost prohibi--
tive because of the expense, for, to
insure a reasonable degree of safety,,
shipments must be sent either by way
of Norway or Italy.
It is thought that the German gov-
ernment will cooperate with the Uni-
ted States in the atteipt to establish
commercial relations, but it is doubt-
ed whether our state department will
risk anything that might antagonize
any of the belligerents.

DEPARTMENT VICE PRESIDENTSy
TO HAVE CONSULTATION HOURS
Non Desiring Committee Work Should
:Meet Their Representatives
At These Times
Vice presidents of the Union repre-
senting the various departments will
have regular office hours in the Union
office beginning next Monday. The
object of the plan is to make it con-
venient for men in the different de-
partments who are interested in Un-
ion activities to consult with their
vice presidents.
Each of the vice presidents will
have general supervision of the men
in his department and recommenda-
tions for committee appointments will
come very largely through him. By
this means it is hoped to reach a large
number of men that the president has
never before had any means of con-
sidering.
Harry G. Gault, '15, lit vice presi-
dent, may be reached every Monday,
11:00 to 12:00 and Wednesday 3:00
to 4:00 o'clock; K. S. Baxter, '15E,
engineering, Tuesday 1:00 to 2:00 and
Thursday 1:00 to 2:00 o'clock; Ed-
ward Saier, '15L, law, Monday 11:00
to 12:00 and Friday 10:00 to 11:00
o'clock; George Curry, '15M, medical,
Tuesday 5:00 to, 6:00 and Saturday
11:00 to 12:00 o'clock; F. A. McDon-
ald, '15D, combined departments, Wed-
nesday 5:00 to-6:00 and Saturday 1:00
to 2:00 o'clock.
Men who desire to serve on com-
mittees are urged to see their re-
spective department vice presidents at
once.

PROFESSOR ZOWSKI IMPROVES
ON OLD DESIGN OF TURBINES
Recent tests of a new turbine, the
latest one which Prof. S. J. Zowski,
of the engineering department, has
designed after several years of work,
show that his latest turbine develops
a further increase in capacity, with a
rise in efficiency over any other tur-
bine designed to run under a 16 foot
head.
The tests, which were held in the
public testing flume at Holyoke, Mass-
achusetts, disproved the belief com-
mon among engineers, that it was im-
possible to build a turbine which
would develop more than 160 horse
power, running at 200 revolutions per
minute under a 16 foot head. This
most recent design of Prof. Zowski's,
while running under the above condi-
tions, developed 268 horse power, with
its efficiency rated at 90.7%.
Previous to this test of the Zowski
I turbine No. 5, this turbine had de-
veloped 215 horse power, an increase
of 33% over what was considered the
obtainable maximum, realizing at the
same time an efficiency of 90.1%, a
value never before attained with
wheels of high power type. Recently
many of Prof. Zowski's turbines have
been installed by the different turbine
manufacturers all over the country.

HERBARIUM PLANSE
Specimens of Nearly All Plants and
Fungi Will Be Displayed in
New Science Hall
EXPEDITIONS GATHER MATERIAL
When the new science building is
completed, Michigan will have one of
,the finest herbariums in the West.
Complete specimens of nearly all
plants and fungi of plants and trees
will be displayed and put on exhibi-
tion to the general public here for the
first time.
Last week a complete colleAtion of
specimens of fungi were receded from
the botanical station in the Adiron-
dack mountains. Nearly all of these
were gathered by Professor C. H.
Kaufman and Mr. E. B Mains, of the
botany department, last month while
working'on an expedition sent out by
the university. Among these fungi is a
collection of plant fungi which are
very destructive to trees and whose
extinction will be a great benefit to
lumbermen all over the country. They
will be studied by the forestry depart-
ment as well as by botanical students.
In addition to the expedition in the
Adirondacks, the university sent out
an exploring party to the upper penin-
sula in charge of Mr. Alfred H. Povah,
'12, assistant in botany, who worked
there in conjunction with the State
Biological survey. Here also an enor-
mous number of fungi and other mate-
rial to be used in botanical work was
collected and is now being prepared
for the herbarium.
The State Biological survey is plan-
ning a survey of the entire state which
will, when completed, greatly facilitate
the work of botany and zoology stu-
dents, and will aid materially in mak-
ing the herbarium in the new science
building an interesting, as well as use-,
ful feature of the university.
Appoint Medic From India to Vacancy
Dr. William de Kleine, grad., and K.
C. Kerwell, medic special, have been
appointed assistants to Dean V. C.
Vaughan, to fill the vacancy left by
Roy Pryer, who has resigned to pursue
graduate work for the degree of Doctor
of Public Health. Kerwell is one of the
few students in the university coming
from India.
