FOR FINAL TIME
CAPT. SMITH, UFER, FOX, GRIEST,
AND MURPHY MAKE FINAL
PLAN BIG SEND-OFF FOR TEAM
"Morry" Dinne to Address Rooters at
Depot; "Bob" Bennett Leads Yells;
Band to Be There
Coach Farrell yesterday put his in-
tercollegiate squad through their final
workout of the season.
In addition to the fact that it was
the last chance for the team to appear
on Ferry field, the curtain fell after
the workout was over on several of
the Maize and Blue's best bets. Six
of the number that the coach will take
with him this afternoon have made
their, last appearance on Ferry field
to compete under Michigan colors. Of
this number are Captain, Smith, Ufer,
Fox, Griest, and Murphy.
Because of the best weather which
the track team has been favored with
this year, the coach gave his men the
opportunity of extending themselves
as much as they desired. Among those
to get in some good licks in the finale
was "Eddie" Carroll. The distance
runner was clocked around the quar-
ter-mile track three times in 3 min-
utes and 12 seconds.
"Steve" stated yesterday that he
would let the whole team rest tomor-
row afternoon. This decision means
that the men will not don spiked shoes

To Support Child
Chi Psi to Adopt Fatherless French
War Baby in Near
Following the movement started by
the University of Chicago fraternities
to adopt French war orphans, the lo-
cal chapter of the Chi Psi fraternity
has decided to take over the support
of one of the fatherless French chil-
This will be done by sending funds
to the French society that takes charge
of the work. But half of the cost of
supporting the child will be paid by
the fraternity. The French govern-
ment will pay the rest of the expense
of maintaining every child so support-
.The matter of having . all local

started at Chicago.

DEAN VAUGHAN ON.
STAND IN TRIAL
Testifies With Other Experts That
John Peck Met Death
DR., WAITE FACES HARD
New York, May 23.-That John E.
Peck came to his death as the result
of the heavy doses of arsenic found in
his organs after death, was the un-
qualified testimony in the Waite trial
today of Dr. Victor C. Vaughan, dean
of the medical school of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, and other experts
who conducted the autopsy or analysis
of the contents of those organs.
The poison was found in large quan-
tities every place in which it was
sought, and there were further evi-
dences of chloroform in the brain.
The testimony summed up showed that
about seven grains had been indicated
altogether, and two and half grains
constitute a lethal dose.
The state today finished with the
evidence to prove that Mr. Peck was
put to death by his son-in-law, Dr.
Arthur Warren Waite, and by adjourn-
ment time at nightfall everything had
been made ready for a day of sensa-
tions scheduled to begin tomorrow. At
tomorrow's session, the tall, slender,
indifferent prisoner, on trial for his
life, will find confronting him first
his wife, Myra T. Waite, then Margar-
et Weaver Horton, the "other woman,"
Percey Peck, his brother-in-law, per-
haps his aunt-in-law, Mrs. Catherine
Peck, and some time during the day

Paris; May 23.-Terrific fighting con-

in the Verdun sector, where the Ger-
mans are seeking to recover the
ground gained by the French on both
banks of the Meuse yesterday. None

the Germans, who lost the southern
part of Fort Douaumont yesterday,
have now been pushed into the north-
east 'corner of the fort, while the rest
is in French hands.
The German batteries on the west
bank of the Meuse concentrated an un-
usually heavy bombardment with large
caliber shells this morning on the
French lines to the west of - Le Mort

FINANCE PROJECT IN DETROIT
Regent H. C. Bukley, of Detroit,
has come to the support of the move-
ment for aunit of field artillery, at
the University of Michigan by ex-
pressing the opinion that the $100,-
000 necessary for an armory for such
an aggregation can be raised among
"preparedness" advocates in Detroit
and other parts of Michigan.
Provided the necessary financial
- aid is secured, the armory would be
similar to that recently constructed at
- Yale. Plans of this building have been
forwarded to the University of Michi-
With reference to the housing of A

wagon, and store wagon), togethe:

WHAT'S GOING ONV
Jiodern Doctor Just Be Jiore Than
Dispenser Of Pills And -Medicine
Next to the practitioner of public
health, the doctor comes into closest
contact with the present day move-
ment in society for the elimination of
preventable disease. "Preventive medi-
cine" is the modern slogan, that neces-
sarily means more to the physician
than to the general public.
There are several ways of being a
doctor and there are various standards
of success in the profession. A physi-
cian may be a mere pill and medicine
dispenser, a setter of fractured bones.
He may be very successful at this, and
he may make a great deal of money.
Or a man may be a great specialist
and become an authority in his par-
ticular line. Or he may become a
great medical scientist and go in for
original research work. Whichever
special line of endeavor the man who
is now studying medicine will follow,
must depend to a large extent on
temperament and natural leanings.
One, who has the making in him of a
great surgeon or of a great brain spe-
cialist would not be serving society
best by going against that natural
bent and following the work of the
public health propagandist.
But the medical student whose pref-
erences lead him into the work of the
general practitioner can hardly do
better than to hitch his life work on to
the great public health movement that
is constantly increasing in volume and
in intensity. If he measures the suc-
cess of his work by the way in which
that work advances the public health
movement in his particular commun-
ity he will be applying a standard
that is broad and that makes for
The state of Michigan needs doctors
of this kind. It needs physicians who
shall be public health leaders in their
communities, who shall leave behind
them in each home they visit profes-
sionally a knowledge of how to pre-
vent disease, or how to live sanely and
wisely, who shall be on the board of
control of the local anti-tuberculosis
society, who shall back up health
movements of all kinds in their com-
munities. The ignorance of a large
mass of the people in regard to disease
and its causes is still monumental even
in Michigan. The state health workers
are finding that out right along in the
present state-wide tuberculosis survey.
The mayor of a city of-35,000 the other
day based an argument against a
county tuberculosis survey on the as-
sertion that tuberculosis is hereditary
and hence can't be cured!' And there
are scores of thousands of people who
have no conception of what the word
"germ"' means, nor that dirt and dis-
ease are related. The medical pro
fession has unusual opportunity tc
help change all this.
