A health committee, composed of
representatives from all of the lead-
lng state health organizations, will
hold its first meeting in this city on
October 6, at the Michigan Union.
The meetings will extend over a
period of. several days.
This new state health committee
is uilt around a former committee
havingsmia aims, which has been
in existence for several years. The
e wcommittee is simply an old one,
with representatives from a number
o new organizations participating
in the sessiohs. The new health or-
ganization has decided to co-
operate with the old committee are
ihe Michigan Tuberculosis associa-
tion, the Michigan State Nurse as-
1oclation, and the Michigan State
onference of Social Work,
Qther mimbers of the cimmittee
are the Michigan State Medical so-
iety, University of Michigan, Michi-
gan department of Health, Detroit

The purpose of the committee is
to educate citizens of the state in
the necessity for proper care of the
health, through the medium of lec-
tures and literature. It attempts to
present to the people, through the
co-operation of the various health
societies, the fundamentals under-
lying public health work.
Members of the committee declare
that, in the two years of its exic-
cnce, the work has been tremend-
iusly successful, and that interest
iht the work is increasing steadily.
During the past year, attendance at
the ledtures sponsored by the com-
mittee has increased by more than
100 per cent.
Last year the committee arranged
for lectures in 89 communities. In
Detroit alone,- where they say the
noecessity for education in hygiene i
greatest, mnore than 75 lectures were
delivered. The total attendance at
these locures is estimated at slight-
l less than 80,000. All of them are

Carnegie Hallr
Sees End Near

New York, Sept. 22.-Carnegie Hall,
for 19 years one of the musical cen-
ters of New York, will be torn down
to make way for modern office afid
apartment luildings. A price of $2,-
500,000 has been fixed by the Carnegie
Foundation, and the property is said
to have been placed in the hands of
a broker.
The building, which is seven stories
high and includes many private halls,
reception rooms, studios, concert halls
and music rooms, no longer pays its
own expenses, the concert hall alone
having lost $15,000 a year, according
to a report. The red brick and terra
cotta structure is built along modified
renaissance lines, with a plain roof of
the Mansard type. It stands at Fifty-
seventh street and Seventh avenue.
The main auditorium seats approxi-
mately 3,000 persons, with standingj
room for 1,000. Thre are four gal-
leries,including the first tier of boxes.
'The original cost of the building was
about $2,000,000.
