With the successful inauguration of
the Michigan Union's eleventh year,
the ten ex-presidents of that organiza-
tion may claim their share of praise.
The Union was founded in 1904, and
the names of the chief executives are
now arranged on beams in the club-
Edward F. Parker was elected first
president of the organization when it
started in 1904. At that time there
was no building and only a meager
membership. Parker was leader of
the Glee club while at the university.
He is now an attorney in Los Angeles,
but often returns to Michigan for
special occasions.
The second head of the body was
Hugh Allen, who worked on a Wash-
ington paper, and is now editor of a
paper inAkron, Ohio.
F. P. Helsel was elected to the office
in )906. He finished a literary-law
course, and is now an attorney at
Seattle, in partnership with another
Michigan graduate.
H. W. Clark, '05-'08T, headed the
Union in 1907-8. He was an instructor
in the rhetoric department for one
year. He was intensely popular. It
was while he was president that the
first Michigan-Pennsylvania game was,
played. In the same year the present
clubhouse was taken over by the or-
ganization. He is now state attorney
for New Mexico, and is situated at
East Las Vegas, in that state.
The first Varsity football player who
took the office was J. K. Watkins, who
played guard and fullback on the team,
and who went to Oxford on a Cecil
Rhodes scholarship. He is now prac-
ticing law in Detroit.
In 1909-10, W. W. Merritt, '11L, af-
ter 'having served as general chair-
man of the first Michigan Union opera,
"Michigenda," became chief execu-
tive. Merritt is now an attorney in
The chairman of the second Union
opera "Culture," which was staged in
December, 1908, and the president of
the musical clubs became Union pres-
ident for 1909-10. H. L. Barkdull, '09-
'11L, though small in size and not
athletic, was exceptionally popular.
He is now secretary of the National
Carving company at Cleveland.
M. It. Blish was the only president
from the engineering department. He
was an excellent student, an assistant
in the faculty, and a member of honor
societies of his department. He was
also chairman of the Union member-
ship committee, member of the Glee


Nelville Soule Hoff, dean of the de-
partnrant of dentistry, was born at
Elizabeth, W. Va. on July 20, 1854. On
the maternal side, he is directly de-
scended from Sir Francis Drake, the
famous English buccaneer and adven-
turer, who was so prominently identi-
fied with the early history of America.
His father was a practicing physician
for more than 50 years, and so the
ideal of a medical profession was early
implanted in the breas, of young
He took his preparatory work in his
native town, and in 1873 he was gradu-
ated from the high school at Pomeroy,
Ohio. After spending the next year in
a dental office in a smali Ohio city, he
entered the Ohio College of Dental
Surgery, and in 1876 he was graduated.
from that institution with the degree
of Doctor of Dental Surgery.
He was occupied, the next twelve
years, in the practice of his profession
in Cincinnati, but in 1888 he accepted
a call from the University of Michigan'
to fill the chair of assistant professor

of practical dentistry. In 1891 he was
advanced to the chair of dental ma-
teria medica and dental mechanism.
This position he filled until 1903,
when his title was changed to pro-
fessor of prosthetic dentistry.
He served for many years as secre-
tary of the dental department and on
the occurence of a vacancy in the
chief executive office of the depart-
ment; a few years ago, 'he was tend-
ered the postion of dean. He accepted
the position, and is still engaged in
the administration of that work.
Deaa Hoff is a member of the Amer-
ican Dental association, the- Michigan
State Dental association, the Ameri-
can society of. Orthodontists, the
Northern Ohio Dental association, and
the Institute of Dental Pedagogics. He
has been editor of the Dental Register
since 1900, and he is en extensive
contributor to a number of dental
publications. He is a member of the
Masonic order, and he is also affiliated
with Delta Sigma Delta, a national
dental fraternity.

pany at Chicago.
E. G. Kemp, '12-'14L, ex-president,
both of the Union and the musical
clubs, is a graduate of the law depart-
ment, and is at present assistant to
Judge Kuhn, of the state supreme
Last year's executive was Selden S.
Dickinson, '15L, who has perhaps held
the most so called "campus honors."
He was a member of the student coun-
cil, president of his senior literary
class, and took the coast trips witi the
niusical clubs.
P. D. Koontz, '17L, is now president
of the Union. Homer Heath, former

Countless European non-combatants

horrible misery; many Americans have
enlisted in the work. All have unsel-
fishly given time and money, some
even their own lives, to care for the
refugees from the corpse-littered, de-
vastated fields of war. Why cannot
the student body here help the cause
of humanitarianism? It can, but will
it? Our community has already start-
ed relief work, and the women of the
student body have joined the com-
pany. As for the men, the least they
can do, is to forget the bop and donate
the money which would be spent for,
it, to procure bare necessities for the
war sufferers.
This is only a little unselfish denial
of our pleasure seeking college days,
and need not be advertised as any
great moral movement. But a move-
ment so started among American col-
leges would reach to goodly propor-
tions. It would at least help dispel a
somewhat erroneous idea that college
students are a crowd of arrogant, sel-
