tack, but the President's recovery was
delayed for two weeks by it. His
present condition is outlined in the
following bulletin issued yesterday by
attendant physicians:
President Burton has been
showing signs of marked improve-
ment during the East week. For
the first time since his illness be-
gan he has been able to leave his
room. He is now able to be up
and about in a wheel chair. Should
we be guided by 1Vr. Purton's good
feelings and the inc-e',d -n-r'v
he shows we might permit him to
do more ,than he does.
Mrs. Burton intimated yesterday
that President Burton will spend some
time away from Ann Arbor when his
recovery has advanced far enough for
him to go. No plans have been made
I as yet, and no decision which would
lead to the application for the leave
of absence has been reached. It is
quite possible that a formal leave may
be granted by the Board of Recit's

Saturday was the first day on which
President Burton was able to leave
his bed in the ten weeks of his illness.
In a wheel chair he was moved from
the room which he has been occupy-
ing, and has enjoyed the slight diver-
sion every day since then.
During the weeks following the
mast critical stage in his illness Presi-
dent Burton has been keeping in con-

nurses, and members of his immediate
