Presented with New Sousaphone
Annual Dinner Given by
C. of C.


More than 600 were present at.the
annual Ann Arbor Chamber of Com-
merce banquet held last night in the
new Masonic temple, at which the
University band was presented with
the silver Sousaphone purchased forj
them by the Chamber. The band were
guests of the Chamber at the banquet,
and furnished music during the eve-I
ning, playing "The Victors," and other
numbers, and closing the program
with "America."
Preceding the banquet the band, un-
der the direction of Captain Wilfred
Wilson, paraded down Williams street
to Main, then to Huron, and back on
Fourth street to the temple.
Dr. J. Bradford Pengelly, director of
the Flint Chamber of Commerce, was
the principal speaker of the evening.
In his talk on "The Body and Soul of
a City," he stressed the importance of!
emotional training and social unity in
the building of a city. Rev. Herbert
A. Jump acted as toastmaster in the
absence of Shirley W. Smith, secretary
of the University, and in his opening
speech paid a tribute to President
Marion L. Burton, offering a short!
prayer for his recovery.
The invocation was delivered byI
Rev. Kenneth Bowen, pastor of the
Church of Christ. Other speakers on
the program were R. A. Dolph, past
president of the chamber, W. Hackley
Butler, retiring president, and P. P.
Woodbridge, executive secretary.
The Sousaphone was presented on
behalf of the chamber by Louis E.
Ayres, and received by Robert A.
Campbell, treasurer of the University.
Members of the University Glee club,
under the direction of Theodore Har-
rison furnished selections. Officers
of Chambers of Commerce from neigh-
boring cities were guests of honor at

Blanehard Speaks on Promotion
of Safety by Use of
Mechanical Means
Discussion concerning the most re-
cent developments in the construction
and maintenance of cement-concrete
highway pavements together with the
design and tests concerning them oc-
cupied the afternoon sessionof the
eleventh annual conference on high
way engineering being held here by
the engineering college in cooperation
with the Michigan State Highway de-
partment and the Michigan associa-
tion of Highway Commissioners and
Belknap Speaks
Leon Belknap, engineer-manager of'
the Oakland county road commission
traced the most recent construction
methods used for concrete pavements
and showed the effect of new ma-
chinery on the rapid development,
within the past few years, of that type
of highway construction. He briefly ,
gave a resume of the different meth-
ods of construction and the most ap-
proved ideas on the maintenance of
the pavement.
A technical paper illustrated by
slides was presented by A. T. Gold-
beck, chief of the division of tests of
the United States Bureau of Public
Roads, dealing with the different tests i
which that bureau uses in the deter-
mination of the value of different soils
for road subgrade and the approved
methods of preparing it for the con-
struction of the wearing surface. He
gave the results of many tests and
experiments carried on. by that de-
partment as the most efficient types
of concrete road design with the
graphical results of research concern-f
ing the road designs in different
states. f
Stressing the point that if the State
Highway department would spend at
least one percent of the amount spent
on road construction on research to
better the concrete roads, instead of
pursuing a policy of hit or miss ex-
periment, Professor Alfred H. White,
of the chemical engineering depart-
ment briefly discussed the concrete
pavement from the standpoint of lab-'
oratory tests made on it. His subject
was "The Causes of the Expansion
and Shrinkage of Cement-Concerte"
and in it' he showed how the effect of
moisture and heat on the single grain
of cement caused it to crask and break
the concerte slab. Professor White
stated that unless some new method
were soon developed for concrete mix-
tures there would never be any per-
manent road built. Herstated that it
was necessary for the engineers of the
country to determine some method by
which concrete roads could resist the
elements and be of some permanent

months. The recuperative powers
which he repeatedly displays are
standing him in good stead again, and
are the basis of a hope which persists
in the fact of what at times appear to
be overwhelming odds. Nevertheless,
the fact cannot be ignored that the

of and for his life has been subjected
within the past few days to additional
burdens which are dangerous in the
It was learned yesterday that Presi-
dent Burton had been for years suf-
fering from a weak heart, and that a
number of years ago he had been
warned by the doctors to slacken the
terrific pace which he had set for him-
self. But with characteristic energy
he disregarded their advice, and
plunged into his work harder than
ever. It was not until comparatively
recently that he fully realized his
condition and began to take serious
measures against it.
President Burton's courage, which
is supported continually by his wife
who is in constant attendance at his
bedside, and who has given no sign of
faltering in her confidence and hope,
cannot be emphasized too strongly
in consideration of the hopeful fac-
tors of the case. That he has been
abley to bear up so well under the re-
peated attacks of the complications
has been a source of wonder to the

regarding Dr. Burton's condition, but
