Iathological Conference Discusses
Fatal Cases In Session;
_ Movies Used
Attending more than 20 clinics and
demonstrations and one general meet-
ing, more than 700 fellows of the
American Congress on Internal Medi-
cine were in Ann Arbor yesterday for
a part of the tenth annual clinical
session of that organization. The re-
mainder of the session is being held
this week in Detroit, yesterday being
designated as Ann Arbor day.
The physicians arrived here at 9

Here hourly clinics were held by
the various members of the hospital
staff, while demonstrations of the
heart station, the X-ray department,
the clinical laboratories, experimen-
tal nephrites, and diets, were seen
throughout the morning.
At the conclusion of the clinics by
University physicians, Dr. Jacques
Forestier, of the Hospital Nekkar,. Aix
Les Bains, France, demonstrated his
findings in the use of iodized oil in
the X-ray examination of the re-
spiratory cavities. Dr. Forestier is
attending the Congress as an espe-
cially invited foreign guest. He was
the first man to employ iodized oil
for demonstration of the breathing
organs and his work in this field has
attracted a great deal of attention in
Europe. This clinic was not on the
regular program, being given by spe-
cial request. It has already been
given once in Detroit and is to be re-
peated there tomorrow.
The physicians had lunch at the
University hospital after which they
were taken through the building.
Busses then carried them to the
Union where the afternoon meeting
-was held. Two speeches were given
here by members of the University
,uThe first talk was by President
Clarence Cook Little, who spoke on
"Methods of Sterilization in the Light
of Biological Investigation." He re-
veiwed the technical phases of the
various processes of temporary steri-
lization, outlining the use of four dif-
ferent methods. He then pointed out
the dangers in the uses of the several
The President was followed by
Dean Hugh Cabot of the Medical
school. His discussion of the "Avoid-
ance of Surgical Operations in Pa-
tients With Certain Types of Person-
ality," dealtrwiththe advisability of
consulting with a neurologist in all
cases where an operation was not ab-
solutely necessary.
┬░These speeches were followed by a
clinical pathological conference in
which cases of deceasednpatientscwere
discussed by members of the depart-
ments that had examined them. Mov-
ing pictures were used to demonstrate
the course of the diseases. The doc-
tors taking part in this conference
were: from the department of path-
alogy, Dr. A. S. Warthin ;from the de-
partment of internal medicine, Dr. F.
N. Wilson and J. D. Bruce; from the
department of roentgenology, Dr.
Preston N. Hickey; from the depart-
ment of surgery, Dr. F. Coller.
At the conclusion of the conference
at the Union the physicians returned
by special train to Detroit where the

last sessions will be held tomorrow.
The convocation of the American Col-
lege of Physicians will be held in the
evening at the Book-Cadillac hotel.
With this meeting the - Congress, the
name for the clinical week of the
,College, will close what has been, ac-
cording to Doctor Warthin, the larg-
est and most successful sessions in
its history. More than 1,500 physi-
cans from all parts of the country
have participated during the week,
enjoying a scientific program of more,
he said, thai ordinary interest.

Pointing out that one-fourth of the
entire population is always engaged
in going to school, Mr. Hoover told
the delegatessthat "ourrpublic schools
are the real melting pot, pouring out'
a new race."
"No nation in the world's history
has so devotedly believed in and so
deeply pledged itself to free universal1

.Exeentive Will Sign In The Presence
Of Treasury And Congressional
Officials In ills Office
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 25.-Barring a
slip-up in plans the tax reduction bill
will become law tomorrow.
Announcement that President Cool-
idge would sign the measure at 10
o'clock was made late today al! the
White House after the engrossed
copy had been received from Congress
and sent to the treasury for a last
minute check for possible flaws.
Reference to the treasury was large-
ly a formality as Secretary Mellon
had expressed approval of the bill's
pro visions, although, its estimated
$387,000,000 reduction in taxes exceed-
ed the maximum he and his assistants
had declared was safe.
While department experts were ex-
amining the final draft of the proposal,
Mr. Mellon went to the White House
to recommend personally to the pres-
ident that he give it approval.
The executive's signature will be af-
fixed in his office in the presence of
treasury and congressional officials
and others. Secretary Mellon, Chair-
man Green, of the House ways and
means committee, author of the meas-
ure, and Chairman Smoot, of the Sen-
ate finance committee, who was in
charge of it in the Senate, are among
those invited to be present.
In his comment on the bill Mr. Mel-
lon said the government should have
little difficulty in meeting its financial
needs after the revised schedules be-
came effective if Congress exercised
caution in authorizing new appropria -
Secretary Hoover, discussing the
probable effect of the legislation on
business, predicted it would result in
added savings for investments and
consequently benefit business gen-
era lly.
The Commerce d partmient head
said he foresaw no slump in business
and industry that would serve further
to reduce revenue with a possible
treasury deficit resulting.

Prominent Realtors Of Western Cities
Discuss New Methods In Sub-
Division and Financing
President Clarence Cook Little
spoke at a luncheon yesterday of the
program of the conference of brokers
and subdividers, held under the joint
auspices of the Michigan Real Estate
association and the School of Busi-
ness Administration, which closed a
two-day session yesterday afternoon
at the Union. President Little spoke
on the subject of the way the real
estate profession and business in gen-
eral work into the system of educa-
"Unlike other professions, that of
real estate deals with people in their
normal state; therefore its contact
with education should have a normal
basis," said President Little. "As
ducation is the development of in-
elhigence, a proper understanding of
youth is the objective factor in the
ontact between education and busi-
ess. Under the present system, a
youth goes into business as an ap-
prentice, working for almost nothing
o have his chief impart to him ideas
tnd habits peculiar to the trade which
he chief himself has acquired
:hrough years of painstaking effort. I
h1milarly, under the present system,
:he boy or girl comes to the Univer-
ity for facts. Educators in the past
ave fallen too nuch into the pitfall
>f facts."
"The proper syst em," President
ittc said, "is to realize that the boy
nd girl really exist. To create
.ought within their minds is the only
ay to bring them up. It is no kind-
ess to a young man for the univer-
ity to admit him if he is unable to
withstand the rigors of a higher edu-
ation. In fact, it is criminal to allow
n who is unprepared to undergo
raining; it is a wasting of the most
raluable period of his life. Instead
>f trying to make them do what you
want them to do, one should show
hem what they may be able to do.
iviization, happniess, and spiritual
rogress should be built for people,
tot for things."
President Little urged the realtors
to joinwith the university in this
hift of emphasis.
At the first session yesterday morn-
[ng, Harry F. Menard of Detroit, a
nember of the firm of Clemens,
Knight, Menard Company, spoke on!
'Subdivision Planning and Develop-
nent." Mr. Menard stressed the idea
hat in order to be successful and to
be fair to the prospective purchasers,
realtors should plan and develop their
ubdivisions so that every prospective
home-builder should enjoy the most
complete satisfaction possible. Mr.
Menard carried out the idea express-
ed at the beginning of the conference
that service is the essence of the
rokerage business.'
After a discussion of Mr. Menard's
alk, George F. Nixon of 'Chicago, who
haeads the firm which bears his name,
outhined a subdivision selling plan
which purported to clear up some
questionable points in the selling end
of the realty business. He, too, stress-
ed service as the most important fac-
tor, and that realtors should secure
efficiency without thought of money,
and should aim to give better service
to buyers in the way of better plan-
ning of subdivisions.
At the afternoon session, Robert F.

Bingham of Cleveland, spoke on "New
Developments in Real Estate Finance."
He stated it is very important that in-
tended home owners should be financ-
ed when they cannot do so them-
selves, because a country populated
with home owners was 'safe from bol-
shevism. There is a need for a more
simplified systemand lower rates for
loans to home-builders, said Mr.
Bingham, and he ' suggested that
amortized land certificates be used in
commercial real estate financing. He
also declared there was a need of
more information for realtors about
industrial real estate subdividing and
home financing.
Asher L. Cornelius of Cornelius and
Dolan, Attorneys-at-law in Detroit
spoke after the discussion which fol-
lowed Mr. Bingham's talk. He em-
phasized the need of an elementary
knowledge of contract forms by real-
tors as necessary to successful sales.

Edwards Attacks Attitude Of

(By Associated Press) w
WASHINGTON, Feb. 25.-Sharply
contrasting word pictures of prohibi-d
tion were painted in radio debate hereB
tonight between Senators EdwardsR
Democrat, New Jersey, speaking for
the, Wets and Brookhart, Republican,t
Iowa, speaking for the drys.M
Senator Brookhart described the
18th amendment as 'our greatest vic- b
tory in the world war," while Sena- P
tor Edwards said it and the Volstead w
act were "foisted on a war crazed peo- C
pl .", t
The New Jersey senator devoted
much of his address upon an attack e
on the anti-saloon league and its gen-
eral counsel Wayne D. Wheeler, whom i
he called the "arch-traitor of Ameri- t
can liberty." The speaker declared, F
that "not even the sacred courts of
our land are free from the poisonous p
taint of the league's filthy hands and sE
Characterizing as an "inexcusable i
lie" an assertion last Sunday by
Mr. Wheeler that "prohibition had i
been a success", Senator Edwards said a
the league counsel's "peeweedmind I
and mental incapacity for drafting
facts makes him immune to the con- i
vincing truth that prohibition is a $
failure." f
Senator Brookhart told his audience
the complete answer to the claims A
that the 18th amendment did not rep- I
resent the majority of the American p
people was found in its universal rati- i
fication by the states.
"I therefore conclude that the
American people may modify the Vol-
stead act but when they do it they
will have to make it stronger and not
weaker. Let my friend from New Jer-
sey bring his proposition to vote in
the Senate or in the House and he will
be snowed under many times over.
