of the University life. It is planned
to have as a speaker at each one of
them some man of national repute,
who can deliver a message of serious
and tangible import to the students.
Such men are Hery Churchill King
and Jeremiah Jenks, who spoke at
last years Services. More than 3,000

year, and it is hoped that more than
this will attend them this year.
Dr. Samuel S. Marquis, former dean
of St. Paul's Cathedral Detroit, and
now rector of St. Joseph's Episcopal
Church of that city, will be the next
speaker at the Services.hAfter ser-
ing for sne years at the Cathedral,
he resigned to Become head of the

terests. Dean Marquis is the only man
to occupy a high position with the
Ford Company who did not come up

MIT GREATER EXPANSION
With the Halth Service moved in-
to its modern gquarters, University offi-
cials believe that no institution In the
middle-west offers superior health
service facilities than are now avail-
able at Michigan.
The new building, located just east
of the former Homeopathic hospital,
has more than twice as. much floor
space as the old building afforded.
Three new physicians,dDrs. Richard
im pton, Clyde Reynolds, and Sadie
McFarlane, have been added to the
staff. More menbers will be added
during the year, if they are needed.
It is planned to diminish the numbers
of hours of duty by these staff addi-
A new system of graduate instruc-
tion is being encouraged in the Med-
ical school and the department of hy-
giene will provide additional doctors
who will be on a part time basis.
Another new feature of the Health
Service is the student hospital. Here-
tofore such a project was impossible,
due to a lack of spae:.wAt present the
hospital is qupped with 10 beds, and
15 more will be added later. Minor
operations are at present being con-
ducted in this department: All dis-
pensary work is now done on the first
floor, and operating on the first floor.

New York, Oct. 14.-Bishop James
Cannon, Jr., of Birmingham, Ala., ad-
dressing. a meeting of the Federal
Council of Churches and of Near East
Relief at the Yale Club recently,
charged that the United States, as a
Christian nation, "had failed to meet
its responsibilities" in the Near East
situation and urged that the govern-
ment take immediate action to at-
tempt to stop Turkish massacres.
. Henry W. Morgenthau, former am-
bassador to Turkey, and Dr. Henry
A. Atkinson, general secretary of the
Church Peace union, joined with
Bishop Cannon in urging that the
United States government should
throw its moral support into the bal-
ance against the Turk.
Bishop Cannon, who returned today
from a trip through Europe and thea
Near East, declared that the object
of the Kemalist advance into Europe1
was to effect a methodical extermina-
tion of Christians.

"Gain, to the Child Proves Incal-
culable," lie Says
Detroit, Oct. 14.-Failure to co-op-
erate, or lack of interest on the part
of either the homes or schools of the
country would result eventually in
the failure to achieve the aims of
defnocracy, Superintendent F r a n k
Cody, of the Detroit public schools,
says in a letter prepared for distribu-
tion to all. parents here.
The letter, that is an appeal for sup-
port of the Parent-Teachers' clubs,
now located in all parts of the state,
"There are three inseparable fac-
tors that make for success of educa-
tion. 'They are home, the child, and
the school. The three are bound to-
gether so closely that lack of co-op-
eration or absence of interest on the
part of any single one must result
eventually in the failure to achieve
the aims of democracy.
"To meet this need of social co-op-
eration there has been developed an
agency in the form of Parent-Teacher
associations that possess the possi-
bilities of aiding in the solution of
'The immediate aim of Parent-
Teacher asociatons is to bring home
and school into closer relationship;
to educate narents to their obligations
toward the education of their chil-
dren; to co-ordinate education in the
home and in the school and so weld
them into a unity.
"It is only with the changing con-
ception of education as life itself in-
stead of a thing apart that teachers
have realized , their larger responsi-
b lities towad the children. When
they came to understand the mean-
ing of the service they were giving, the
large-minded response to the call for
co-operation largely' was responsible
for the ksuccess in the organization of
successful parent-teacher associations
throughout the country.
"The gain to the parents from such
associations is large; to the teacher
it is enormous; but to the child,around
whom, after all, the whole structure
is built, it is incalculable.
"Parent-teacher associations carry
heavier "obligations to the community
and to posterity than any other or-
ganizations on the face of the earth.
The teacher who will not take up the
burden of that responsibility, who will
not devote some of her time and effort
to the good of the child, is not worthy
of the trust placed in her."

lowship, according to Prof. R. M.
Wenley head of the ;philosophy de-
partment. The fellowship amounts to

MORE TlHAN 89 MEN WILL
PLAY IN CHORUS THIS YEAR
Only eight weeks remain'before the
first appearance of the seventeenth
annual Michigan Union opera, "In
and Out," which will open at the
Mimes theater Dec. 4, and. play at the
Whitney the remainder of the week.
Both the tryouts for cast and' chorus
positions are rehearsing daily, round-
ing the production into shape for Its
first appearance. According to all in-
dications, the production will surpass
in elaborateness and extravagance
even the opera of last year, which was
heralded throughout the. country as
the "greatest college production."
The cast will include about 20 mem-
'hers, but the men who will fill, the
parts have not yet been. definitely
selected. In the chorus will be more
than 80 men, which will. surpass the,
large number who participated last
year. 'With the dances rapidly round-'
ing into shape, work will now begin1
on the casting of the parts. Many oft
the favorites of last year's show will
appear again in ",In and Out," but
many new faces will also be seen.
Most of last year's cast is working
on the new opera, and the director1
will have the benefit of the experience
these men gained at that time.
The large number of tryouts fort
positions this year will make it easy
for proper selections to be made for
both the cast and chorus.
Several calls have been received by
E. Mortimer Shuter from men who
plan on entering the poster contest
tomorrow, when there will be a meet-!
ing of all those interested in the plan
at 5 o'clock in the director's office at.

S. C. A. Sponsors
More than 150 freshmen have affili-
ated themselves with the discussion
groups which were originated by the
Student Christian association, and
which are now being conducted under
the auspices of that organization.
The purpose of the discussion
groups is to acquaint the freshmen
with the University, and the ideas
and ideals for which it stands, and
also to clear up many matters which
naturally confront the yearlings.
At the last meeting the ,smaller
groups of men assigned group lead-
ers after being addressed by Prof. F.
N. Menefee of the engineering school.
It was 'decided that these meetings
will be ,held weekly, each group leader
to decide the night on which his
group will meet.
A campaign is now .on to add sev-
eral hundred 'more men to the discus-
sion groups. The members of the S.
C. A. cabinet wl co-operate in this,
according to the plans made at the
regular cabinet meeting Thursday.
Professor Hobbs Believes Outcome of
Pan-Pacifie Union May Settle
DEMAND OF JAPANESE FOR
SHIP BILL HEARING DENIEDI
"Anything which comes out from
the Pan-Pacific Union, is straightfor-
ward and is likely to have great in-
fluence," stated Prof. William H-
Hobbs of the geology department yes-
terday in regard to the Pan-Pacific
Commercial congress which is to be
held this month at Honolulu. "Alexan-
der Hume Ford, is really the founder
of this union," continued Professor
Hobbs. "He affected the Scientific
Congress in Honolulu to which scien-
tists came from all over the world.
The Press Congress then followed at
which Lord Northcliffe spoke as well
as David Starr Jordon."
Ban Political Parleys I'
In the congress to be held this
month in Honolulu, only economic
questions will be discussed. Political
parleys have beentbanned according
to the dispatch sent to the Nippu Jiji,
a. Japanese language newspaper in,
Honolulu which published a state-
ment to the effect that'the Japanese
delegates would ask the conference to
reccemmend abolition "of the dis-
criminatory laws of the United States
The interpretation of the Japanese
newspaper dispatch taken at Honolu-
lu was that the delegates of the Ja-
panese were going to ask the repeal
of the coast-wise shipping laws now
in force that permit only ships of
American registry to trade between!
two American ports,
Economical Problem UppermostI
Dr. F. F. Bunker, executive sec-
retary of the union declared in com-
menting upon the dispatch: "It is the
settled policy of the Pan-Pacific Un-
ion not to discuss in the conference
held under its auspices, matters which
should be properly left to the estab-
lished governmental agencies"
During the sessions of the congress,
it is planned to have one represent-
ative from each country discuss the
topic "Significant Pan-Pacific Com-I
mercial Problems of My Country."

Communication" together with "De-
velopment and Conservation of Na-
tural Resources" will be considered.'
