A circular schedule of the univer-
sity Y. M. C. A. activities has been
drawn up which gives in the accom-
panying tabloid form the summaries
for the different branches of work
which this organization undertakes.
Employment for students has been
especially successful this season. Up
to date 1603 men have been given
work, of which number 128 are bring-
ing in a steady cash aid, 116 pay for
board, 45 for room, 3 are permanent
positions, while 1311 have been odd
About 40 per cent of Michigan stu-
dents are helping themselves through
college, according to the statistics of
the Y. M. C. A. officials. This average
stands very high in' a comparison
with other universities and colleges.
Last year's total of money earned
here by students was $125,000, an in-
crease of $18,000 over that done by
men attending Harvard.- So far this
year the financial total is $25,000:
The All 'Round schedule is form-
ed about an inner circle which servesf
as a nucleus for the other activities.
In this circle there are three divi-
sions. The conferences refer to those'
held in connection with the general
Y. M. C. A. work, such as the Older

Paul Kester's comedy, "Beverly's Bal-
ance," at the Whitney Theatre, Nov.
27, bids fair to be of record-breaking
popularity. It is a comedy based on
the divorce question which makes
you laugh incessantly during three
acts without blushing. Miss Anglin's
art shines brilliantly throughout the
action and her supporting company
is perfect.
It is evident that no one is going to
miss this comedy hit of the season,

Volume five of the Humanistic Ser-
es of University of Michigan studies,
'which has recently come from the
press, bears the title "Sources of the
Synoptic Gospels." The author, the
Reverend Carl S. Patton, is remem-
bared by older students and by all
residents of Ann Arbor as the able
pastor of the Congregational church,
which he left in 1911 to assume charge
of the First Congregational church of'
Columbus, Ohio, a position made
famous by the ministry of Dr. Wash-
ington Gladden. In 1913 Mr. Patton
received the degree of Ph.D. from the
University of Michigan, presenting as
his doctoral dissertation certain
studies in the text of the Gospels,
which have grown into the present
volume. 6
In part 1 of this work Dr. Patton
presents a critical discussion of some
generally accepted results of the study
of the Synoptic Gospels, namely Mark,
Matthew, and Luke. Starting with
the now universally accepted fact that
both Matthew and Luke used the Gos-
pel of Mark and depended on it for
much of their material, Dr. Patton,
compares the three Gospels in great
detail, showing what the later writ-
ers omitted in using Mark's narrative,
and in what respects their arrange-
ment of it is different. In an im-
portant chapter the author discusses
the theory proposed by distinguished
foreign scholars to the effect that Mat-
thew and Luke did not use the form of
Mark that we now have, but an earl-
ier version of it-a primitive Mark.
He decides, after a careful examina-
tion of the evidence, that the later
writers used Mark's narrative in sub-
stantially the same form in which we
now have it and shows that the hy--
pothesis of a primitive Mark is not

the * view, now generany new , ay
in those parts of the text where Mat-.
thew and Luke do not agree with
Mark, they made use of another docu-
ment, now lost, which New Testament
scholars designate by the symbol "Q.
This lost document was a collection
of the sayings of Jesus, and the author
believes that it was originally written
in the Aramaic language. This chapt-
er forms a transition to part two in
which Dr. Patton sets forth the re-
searches which are peculiarly his
own. Here he makes an analysis of
"Q" into two different recensions, or
translations, one used by Matthew
and the other by Luke. The
greater part of the remainder of the
work is occupied by a detailed study
of the Gospels of Matthew' and Luke
in the effort to trace out the influ-
ence of the "Q" document-where the
two writers agree in their use of it
and where they differ and thus indi-
cate the presence of two recesions
of "Q."
The whole investigation is conduct-
ed in the spirit of scientific candor
and its results are presented in a lucid
and perspicuous manner in spite of
technical character of the evidence.
No scholar working in the textual
history of the Gospels can overlook
the importance of this work.
The printing, which was done by
the University of Chicago press, is
excellent. Very few typographical er-
rors can be detected and the reviewer
has noted no serious ones. The
volume is published by the MacMil-
lan Company of New York.
The thanks of the university are
due to those of its friends whose
generosity has made possible the
publication of works " of this sort.
Among them the author in his pre-
face makes special mention of Mr.
William H. Murphy, of Detroit.
Albert J. Westerhead, a student in
Harvard, has been picked as the

'A general survey of all the organized
houses on the campus is now being
carried on by the Universit, Health
Service, for the purpose of improving
and bettering the sanitary conditions
of the different houses.
The inspector who looks through the
houses has two report blanks, one of
which is kept at the Health Service,
while the other is sent to the house
which was inspected.
Everything in and around the house
is inspected. The exposure, i. e., the
air, the dust from the streets and the
sunlight. A report is then made as to
the house proper; the structure, the
material used for roofing, the number
of rooms, the kind of floors, the con-
dition of the house, i. e., whether it
is dry, damp, or wet. The method of
heating is next examined, and the con-
dition of the plumbing. Then follows
the survey of the food; the condition
of the store rooms, the way in which
the fdod is served, and the method by
which the rubbish is discarded. The

Then follows a minute examination
of the separate rooms, the servant
quarters, the chapter -room, and the
toilet facilities. A survey of the sep-

carries with it an examination of each
room and the uses made of the rooms.
The method employed in cleaning the
rooms is next looked after. The light-

and the cloak room. The rugs, car-
pets, and curtains next come under
the eye of the inspectors.

Boys' conference this week at Kala-
mazoo and the conference to be held
at Lansing on December 3. The pray-
er groups are held in the temporary
"Y" building and are considered of the
utmost importance. Under the head-
ing of campaigns comes the work for
a new Y. M. C. A. building and the
Busrah campaign for missionary work
in Arabia.
Among the activities included in the
inner ring, probably the weekly theat-
er meeting is best known. These
meetings are being held this year inUn-
iverstiy Hall. At the next one, to be
held, November 28, James Austin

personal work referred to is chiefly
composed of attempts to cheer de-
