BROWNiNG TALKS
AT UNION -MEETING
Head of Bond Department of Detroit
Trust Company Sees Opportunity
In Salesmanship
MENTIONS LAW AS ASSET
IN SECURITY BUSINESS
"The investment bond business has
a good future" said McPherson Brown-
ing, vice-president and general man-
ager of the bond department of the
Detroit Trust company speaking at
Union Sunday afternoon. "Before the
war. there were about 200,000 bond
buyers. Now there, are between 15,-
000,000 and 20,000,000 buyers of bonds,
including the holders of Liberty bonds.
Before the war the average holding
was $10,000. Now about $3,000 is the
average, which shows the tendency
toward wider sales."
Two Possible Fields
Mr. Browning explained that the
young man entering the bond business
has two possible fields from which to
choose-the buying end and the sell-
ing end. Of the selling end the most
important division in which he can
specialize might be considered as pub-
lic utility bonds, corporation bonds,
railroad bonds and municipal bonds.
Mr. Browning also mentioned the
value of law as an asset in either buy-
ing or'selling of securities. However,
he said, it is hard to tell whether a
man will make a good bond salesman
or not, no matter how great his quali-
fications, until he has been actually
tried out.
Office Work Necessary
The potential salesman must first
work in the offices for about a year to
learn the business, after which he is
allowed to sell. It is only when the
man actually tries selling that it is
possible to judge his worth as a bond
salesman. Of the assets a man must
have to succeed. Mr. Browning believes
perseverance to be the most import-
ant, as oftentimes the "hard" custom-
er, when once sold, is the most loyal
client of the young salesman.

son Motor Car company willtspeak

meeting in January.

failure to attend to a slightly ab-
mal condition may result in serf-
trouble later.
here is an old and well circulated
ry that the doctor's function is

to prevent sickness rather than sim-
piy to cure it when It appears. Ob-
servation seems to indicate that mod-
this tho r. twhnitapar.Wb RI GLf l
ern education is helping to stimulate
this theory.

Seniors were reminded yesterday by
the Union management of the custom
of long standing that permits men of
the outgoing classes to carve initials
and names on the tables of the Union
taproom. The custom has become al-
most a tradition at Michigan, especial-
ly since the remodelling of Joe Park-
er's Catalpa Inn has preventedathe
use of its tables for this purpose. Men
of the 1922class cancarve names or
initials at any time and the Union
wishes them to avail themselves of
the privilege, in order to insure the
continuance of the practice at Michi-
gan.
LARG0E NUMBER RPORT
INCREASE OF 38 PER CENT IS AT-
TRIBUTED TO LONGER
HOURS OPEN
The time may be approaching when
students will attend the "sessions" of
the University Health service almost
as regularly as they attend classes.
How long will it be before we culti-
vate the habit of letting the doctors
"frisk us over" as regularly as we go
to the barber shop? Many of us have
cultivated the habit of seeing our den-
tist every six months. Is it not likely
that we will soon have the habit of
reporting to our doctor at regular in-
tervals as a precautionary measure?
Reports from the Health service esti-
mate that approximately 38% more
students are being treated this year
than was the case last year. This is
largely attributed to the new eight
hour day at the health service. Stu-
dents now report for many. minor ail-
ments which years ago they would
have subjected to some "home rem-
edy." Through educational propa-
ganda we are being made to realize
that the old adage of the stitch in
time, is vitally true in medicine, and
