BUREAU OF SPEAKERS
Work of Joint Committee Will Be Sub-
mitted to State Medical Society
-An educational campaign to ac-
quaint every citizen of the state of
Michigan with the wonder story of
modern medicine and its vital relation
to the health and happiness of every
individual, is to be launched in the
near future if the plans discussed
Tuesday by President Marion L. Bur-
ton and representatives of the Uni-
versity and State Medical society be-
Dr. Hugh Cabot, dean of the Medi-
cal school, Dr. G. Carl Huber, of the
Medical school, Dr. John Sundwall,
head of the departments of public
health and physical education, and
Prof. W. D. Henderson, head of the
extension division, represented the
Dr. W. J. Kay, of Lapeer, president
of the State Medical society, and Dr.
J. B. Kennedy and Dr. Angus Mc-
Lean of Detroit, represented the med-
ical profession of the state. They also
form the executive committee of the
State Medical society's committee on
legislation and public policy.
Meeting Result of State Action
The meeting was the direct outcome
of the action taken by the State Med-
ical society at its annual meeting in.
Bay City, at which it committed itself
to a bampaign of public education
along medical lines. The aid of the
state board of health and certain
state-wide voluntary health agencies
will be requested in carrying out the

Three elaborate Settings Built For
Comedy Club 's Play, Pygmalion"
Comedy club play, "Pygmalion," to'
be given here Jan. 18, will include
three distinct and elaborately con-
structed stage settings, contracted for
by 0. S. Davis, of Detroit, who has
been for some years general stage de-
signer for Comedy club productions.)
The settings will include the portico
of St. Paul's cathedral at midnight in
a London fog, a decidedly ornate re-
ception room of the mid-Victorian,
period, and (particularly familiar to
University students) a professor's lab-
oratory, that of Henry Higgins, who
is carrying on research work in pho-
"Pygmalion" will be the first of
Bernard Shaw's plays to be attempted
by amateurs at the University. Almost
every member of the cast has taken
prominent parts in previous campus
dramatics, including several previous
leads. The play will be presented in
several Michigan cities following its
presentation here, by permission of
the committee on student affairs.
Jackson, Battle Creek, and Grand
Rapids may be included in the tour,
and-it is possible that the invitation
to take the play to Port Huron will
be accepted for the semester vacation.
sion division, will co-operate
public health agencies by
more emphasis in future upon lec-
tures from the Medical school.
The plan which will probably be
followed calls for a program commit-
tee to assemble a bureau of speakers
from members of the University Med-
ical faculty and prominent physicians,
surgeons and public health experts of
The subjects to be discussed are to
be stripped of technical verbiage, and
wherever possible will be accompan-
ied by moving pictures and lantern
"For ages it has been deemed high-
ly unethical for members of the med-
ical profession to speak of their
work," said Dr. Kennedy, "but the
medical profession generally has come
to the conclusion that the public
should be told something of the work
of modern medicine. It believes that
the public has not been informed of
the tremendous strides made by this
science within the last 35 years. We
must carry the information to those
whom it will benefit most."
To Be Approved in January
The work of the joint committee
will be submitted to the board of coun-
cillors of the State Medical society and
to the Regents of the University in
January for their approval. The com-
mitte present at the deliberations
Tuesday will continue to function. As
a first step in the carrying out of the
new plans, charaqterized by President
Burton as being one of the most sig-
nificant steps ever attempted by the
University, a program committee.

OR, BIRN5UW TELLS OF
COLONIES OE HOLLND
Holland is represented among the
nine powers gathered at the conference
at Washington due to her colonial pos-
sessions in the Far East, was the con-
clusion drawn by Dr. A. J. Barnouw,
Queen Wilhelmina professor of Dutch
literature and art in Columbia uni-
,ersity, in his talk, "Holland's Col-
onial Expansion," yesterday afternoon.
Dr. Barnouw pointed out how the
colonial expansion of Holland is in-
tricately bound up in the careers of
two companies. the Dutch East India
company and the West India company.
Through their efforts colonies were
-stablished and trade relations were
maintained which have given to Hol-
and her reputation in the world of
commerce and trade.
Dr. Barnouw showed that while
there have been some blots in Ho1-
'and's colonial policy the good that
has been accomplished has far off-
set this, and if the time should ever
come when the natives should at-
tain competence to manage their own
affairs, Holland will undoubtedly
grant them their freedom.

DEAN ADDESSES 1221;
DISCUSSES DUTY OF ENGINEER;
URGES MEN TO TAKE
Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, of the
enginering college discussed the re-
sponsibility of the engineering pro-
fession with regard to the relation be-
tween the public and public utilities
at the senior engineers' assembly yes-
terday morning, atawhich committee
appointments were announced.
In the past, said the dean, the en
neer considered his duty the inven-
tion and construction of utilities, such
as the railroad. After they were bul'
his responsibility was considered a'
an end. The ensuing complete misun-
derstanding between the utilities ar'
the public was in considerable meas-
ure the fault of the engineering pr
fession, he stated, because of the eng'
neers had not used their training in
assisting in the operation of these
utilities and keeping the public in-
formed of the real factors involved.
Dean Cooley urged the seniors to
take their responsibilities in thisrmat-
Aer seriously to heart.

dent, announced the appointment rof

7:30 o'clock Tuesday night at the
Union with Wilfred B. Shaw, '04, man-
aging editor of the Alumnus, for the
purpose of organizing and getting
pointers on how to solicit the alumni
of their respective territories during
the coming vacation.
The men planning to do this work
will receive compensation for every
subscription taken and every man se-
curing more than 50 signatures will
receive a bonus of $5, while the high-
est man, providing he procures more
than 50 subscriptions, will receive an
added bonus of $10.
"At the present time our circulation
is more than 7,500 copies per week. I
have -no doubt that the campaigners
will bring the total up to 9,000, the
necessary quota, but there is no rea-
son why the Michigan Alumnus should
not have a larger circulation than any
other college alumni magazine in the
United States. We have more alumni
by far than any other university or
college in the country and with the
Alumnus in its new form the news
contained in it is fresh and interest-

NEW YORK WORKERS WILLING TO
RISE AGAINST NEW
COUNCIL ADVISES MEN
TO WAIT FOR ORDERS
Grand Vice-President Roberts Says
Action Is Only Hope
(By Associated Press)
New York, Dec. 14. - The action of
the United States railroad labor board
in Chicago yesterday in setting up a
schedule of 10 hours a day :s the reg-
ular hourly wage for common labor-
ers in new rules replacing the nation-
al agreement made under government
control today brought to union offi-
cials appeals for strike orders from
representatives of 30,000 workers in
the New York district.
Roberts Makes Announcement
This announcement was madegto-
night .by William D. Roberts, grand
vice-president of the united brother-
hood of maintenance of ways em-
ployes and railway shop laborers.
Roberts said that the New York
council had advised local chairmen to
hold their members at work and await
,action by international officers. He
explained these orders had been has-
tened out to forestall sporadic strikes
and that a meeting of the district
council would be held as soon as word
was received from the internationa
Only One Hope
Asserting that there seemed to be
no justice in America for the common
workman, Roberts in a formal state-
ment to union members continued:
"There is only one hope for these men
now that the prayers of capital have.
been answered. And that is action.
Labor is the sole property of the la-
borer and no power on earth can com-
pel them to utilize it unless it brings
a fair return."
Pleases Camp us
With its atmosphere of Yuletide
maintained from the three color cov-
er to the ,department of "Foolish
Finds," its cleverly done parodies on
Christmas carols and St. Nicholas, and
its brilliance of campus wit, the Hol-
'day number of the Gargoyle found
favor with the students yesterday when
its first day's sales equalled, if not
surpassed, sales for November.
"A Visit from St. Barleycorn," is a
parody on "A Visit from St. Nicholas."
The narrator, hearing a clatter of
hoofs on the lawn, rushes to the win-
dow and is greeted by the sight of
"eight reindeers attached to a hogs
head of beer." The bucolic old saint
departs advising the narrator to "re

"Ain't it the Weeds" is the impas-
sioned outburst of sonie homesick lad
who seems to be thoroughly disgusted
with the unrequiting labors of gain-
ing a college education.
"The Conquest of the Bull Pen" set
forth the intriguing adventures of Sir
Bastian Fathead, champion of verbos-
ity. "Heaven's Ward" is a didactic
epic treating with the successful flirt-
ation of a stranger with a Michigan
opera chorus girl. The stranger, how-
ever, is completely crushed later when-
he arrives at the stage door just in
time to see his chorus girl clad in male
attire rushing off to meet "her" best

his style. In the adagio movement by
