Small Blazes Cause Two Explosions;
A small fire occurred in the court

Professors Take Part in Pan-American
Mfeeting Held in
MANY PROMINENT MEN SPEAI
The University of Michigan was well
represented at the second PnAei
PnAeican Scientific Congress which was
held in Washington during the recent
vacation. Two members of the un-
versity faculty read papers and Pres-
ident Harry B. Hutchins was mem-
ber of the committee of education of
the Congress, although he did not at-
tend personally. In. addition to these
men, Dean M. E. Cooley, of the en-
gineering department, and Professor
W. J. Hussey, director of the univer-
sity observatory, were official dele-
gates to the Congress, and Prof.
J. W. Glover attended, but not official-
Prof. Reeves Reads Paper
Professor Jesse S. Reeves, of the
political science department, read a
paper on "Training in Political Sci-
ence for International Commerce,"
and Prof. William Hobbs, of the geol-
ogy department, gave a scientific ad-
dress on "The Serrel Doctrine of Polar
Calms and Its Disproof in Recent Ob-
servations." Professor Reeves spoke
before the section of the Congress de
voted to education, while Professor
Hobbs gave his talk to the division
on Mining, Metallurgy, Geology and
The primary object of the Pn-
American Scientific Congress is to
bring the United States into closer
contact with its Latin-American neigh-
bors and to promote a feeling of
friendship and closer association be-
tween the 21 American countries that
were represented at the Congress.
'With this end in view, approximate-
ly 1000 delegates, about one-third of
whom were from South America and
the West Indies, assembled in Wash-
ington December 27 at the Pan-
American Union building, which is
built especially for this purpose. The
gathering was indeed a notable one.'
The president of the Congress was
His Excellency Suarez Mujica, Argen-
tine ambassador to the United States,f
and men foremost in almost every
modern line of endeavor were pres-.
Reception Tendered Delegates
At the first session of the Congress,
Secretary McAdoo and Secretary Lane
gave addresses, and Mrs. Robert Lans-
ing, wife of the secretary of state, ten-
dered the delegates a reception.
During the Congress' meeting many
important questions concerning state-
craft and science were considered and
lectures and addresses were given by,
such prominent men as President,
Woodrow Wilson, William Jennings
Bryan, Alberto Santos-Dmont, the
famous Brazilian inventor in aeron-
autics and automobiling, and many,
The social side of the two weeks
during which the Congress was in
session was perhaps as distinguished
as any two weeks of society that
Washington has ever seen. Toward
the end of the period of meeting Presi-
dent Wilson received the delegates at
the White House, and dinners and re-
ceptions were given by Secretary and
Mrs. Lansing, Assistant Secretary ofi
State William Phillips, Assistant Sec-
retary of the Navy and Mrs. Franklin

the job was well planned. A care-7

"Mrs. Reynolds" Collects "Combings"
A woman,. who called herself "Mrs.
Reynolds," and claimed to live. at -555
East William street, has fraudulently
secured hair "combings" from a
number of persons living on Thomp-
son street and Cheever court, saying
she would make them up into
"switches." In one case she was giv-
en almost $200 worth of hair. A com_
plaint was sent to the police depart-

fraud discovered that there was -lo.

Commercial Economics, in conjunc-
tion with the United States Bureau of
Education at Washington, an experi-"
ment is being conducted with regard.
to the relative merits of the regular
lecture system *of instruction as op-
posed to the visual system as exem-
plified by the moving picture method.
The experiment is being conducted1
throughout the country at the large
universities with the purpose in view
of discovering just which of these two
methods gives the best result. Pro-
fessor F. S. Breed, of the psychology
department, is. conducting the trial of
the new method at this university.
Will Record Results
The nature of the experiment is as
follows: a film is shown, as was.done
last Wednesday, and then examina-
tions are given to the section which-
saw the film, one day and ten days aft-
er the original instruction in the movie
has been given, and the same, method
pursued after an oral lecture. These
results are kept for statistical purpos-
es. Of course the relative merits and
faults of the lecture system are well
known anid it remnains to discover
whether the movie method will, give
better results than the old way, It
is too early to make any predictions
as to the future of the experiment, but
the method is 'being tried at other uni-
versities regularly. It was at the Uni-
versity of Cincinnati that Professor
Breed attended one of these movie
lectures and became interested in the
project. In his opinion, the success
or failure of the method depends, upon
whether "the "film gives a more accu-
rate, vivid and lasting impression than
the oral lecture.

that programs may be arranged shov
