Kennedys To Come
Here Next Tuesday
On Lecture Course,
Charles Rann Kennedy, author and
playwright, and his company of three,
will appear as the fourth number on
the annual Oratorical association lec-
ture series Tuesday night, Nov. 23, in
Hill auditorium. The prbgram will

DR. LACKLAND SPEAKS
ON LABOR CONDITIONS
OFEUROPEANNATIONS
DENVER PASTOR SAYS BRITISH
LABORITES ARE IMPROVING
WORKING SITUATION
DISCUSSES COMMUNISM
Sees Future Improvement In Germany
And England, Decline in French
And Italian Industry
Dr. George S. Lackland, of Denver,
Colo., in a speech delivered yesterday
afternoon in Natural Science auditori-
um, stated that the British labor party
in power was doing a great deal to
set the industrial conditions in Eng-
land ona stable basis again. He also
said that as long as inflation contin-
ued in France and Italy there would
be no betterment of conditions there.
Germany and England have gone
through the period of deflation and are
rapidly on the road to recovery, he
believes.s
Dr. Lackland opened his talk by a
consideration of conditions in France
and Italy where the currency is still
inflated and becoming more so. He
cited the fact that, inFrance, the cost
of living has gone up 600 per cent
since the war, and that wages have
only gone up 300 per cent to meet
this tremendous increase. The cur-
rency inflation makes it possible for
these countries to sell their goods at I
a much lower price than other coun-
tries are asking . Therefore, there is
very little unemployment since the
factories are going at top speed in
order to take care of the large de-
mand. In both countries the value
of the currency changes so frequently
that as soon as the working men re-
ceive their wages they either spend
them or have them changed into other.
currency.
Communism In France
In France there is much commun-
ism creeping into industry, due to the
difference in the amount which the,
laborers receive and the amount which
they have to pay for food and other
necessities. He said that it was im-
possibletto obtain statistics on taxes
or capital because the French mind
does not think in figures. Due to the
lack of statistics which they have to
turn into the government, the banks
are making so much money that they
are having a hard time investing It.
Certain large corporations are mak-
ing a large amount of money by buy-
ing property on notes. They offer the
seller four times the value of the
property but by the time the note is
due the money has gone down so much
in value that they onl pay about one-
fifth of the original value.
It Italy, Mussolino has complete
control over labor, Dr. Lackland
averred. He has formed the country
into a large corporation with labor
unions and employers both in it. He
regulates wages and hours through a,
committee which he appoints. If they I
cannot decide it, the question is re-
ferred to him for a decision.
Savings Wiped Out
Deflation 'in Germany brought a
wiping out of the savings which peo-
ple had made for years, and caused
intense poverty, Dr. Lackland said.
Since the period of deflation, currency
has attained a stable place again and
products of the country cannot be sold
for as small amounts as France and
Italy can sell them for. This causes
a part time arrangement of factories
and many are unemployed.
The reason that labor is so much
against the churches of Germany is
that they stand back of the govern-
mnt in its aristacratic condition and
support the oppression of the people.-
Now that the country is a republic in
fact, as well as name, the people re-
tain their feeling against the church.
Three laws which have been passed by

the government have assisted the la-
borers greatly. These are: laws mak-
ing a uniform eight hour day; a law'
providing no increase in rent; and a
law ruling that all changes in wages
must be decided by a conference of
laborers and employers. Germany is
still in a very serious condition but
the Dawes plan has given her a
chance, and the present is the "dark-
ness before the dawn" which will
come by next year, according to Dr.
Lackland.
Burglars Loot Two

HOSPITAL STANDING
RATEDY DAVIS
Executive Secretary Of Committee, Of
United Hospital Fund Gives
History Of Dispensaries
LAUDS CLINICS' GROWTH
"Hospitals and dispensaries, once
considered charitable institutions,
have in the last few years swung the
other way and are attracting their
patients from the best classes of peo-
ple," stated Dr. Michael M. Davis, of
New York, before an audience in the
amphitheater of the University hos-
pital yesterday morning. Dr. Davis
is executive secretary of the commit-'
tee on dispensary development of the
United Hospital fund of New York.
The speaker outlined the early his-
tory of hospitals and dispensaries, or
clinics as they are now called,,saying
that the effects of this charitable idea
were still evident in the European
institutions.
"In England," he said, "persons who
are rather well-to-do not only have a1
sort of distaste for hospital treatment,1
but actually have considerable diffi-
culty in obtaining it. Major surgery,
in its development, has been the chief1
factor in changing this viewpoint.,
Reversal of the old custom has alsoc
been brought about by improved ma-
ternity service and the development
of diagnostic resources such as the
X-ray. The transformation has been
made to a medical institution."
"A considerable amount of practice
has been shifted from the patient'sz
home to the hospital and the clinic. i
Likewise the tendency now is to go E
more to the doctor's office. This ne-
cessitates more co-operation between,
all medicaltorganizations and better
service for the patient."
Dr. Davis said that in earlier times
the doctor was no more than inciden-
tal, theamedicine itself was the thing,
but that now clinics have built up an j
enviable reputation for diagnostic and
therapeutic service and are much
sought . Of late there has been an',
astounding growthtinthenumber of
clinics, there being at present over
6,000 of them. According to the speak-
er, this is the result of the rising
movements to combat infant mortal-
ity, tuberculosis, and the like. Unlimit-
ed financial support from the com-
munities has made this possible.

DANVILLE, Ill., Nov. 16-Under
the branches of a red haw tree,
etched against a gray November sky,
the body of Joseph Gurney Cannon
was committed to the grave today
with a simplicity which belied his
prided half-century and more of pub-

In keeping with his own dislike of
ostentation, the man who served for
more than two score years in Con-

tures on various phases of Palestin-
ian archaeology, W. F. Albright, di-
rector of the American School of
Oriental esearch in Jerusalem, wili
speak on the "New Era in Palestinian
Archaeology" at 4:15 o'clock today in

bright is speaking under the auspices
of the School of Religion.
The lecturer has been an instruc-
tor and director of the school since
before the close of the World war,
being in the United States at present
Ion a furlough. While in Jerusalem,
Mr. Albright conducted archaeological
expeditions into the regions surround-
ing Jerusalem and in Mesopotamia
which have since led to important
discoveries, according to archaeologi-
cal authorities.
The second of his lectures will be

HOPPINS DISCUSSES
LOCAL AIPOT PLAN
Secretary Of Stout Motors Company
Outlines Business Advantages
That Would Accruet
STRESSESFACILITIES
"There is a tremendous opportunityt
to build up business around an airportt
in Ann Arbor," asserted G. H. Hop-I
pins, secretary of the Stout Airplanet
Motors company, before members of8
the Chamber of Commerce meeting att
luncheon yesterday. "This year hast
been the beginning, the year one, of1
commercial aviation."'I
Mr. Hoppins outlined the opportun-
ities lying in Ann Arbor's possessionf
of a well-equipped airport, declaring
that effifient air service cannot be
given to any city unles it Ws ample
facilities for taking care of planest
making landings. "The city that hast
the airport gets the service," he as-Y
serted, adding that one landing placet
might be purchased to serve for both,
Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor.1
The main qualification of a good
landing field was declared to be that'
of size; the landing field should be
about 3,500 feet long to provide the
long runway necessary for a success-1
ful take-off by the heavier type ofI
commercial plane,
The speaker briefly outlined the
history of commercial .aviation, de-
scribing the steps taken since the in-
vention of the first successful air-
plane 23 years ago. The awakening
of interest in the possibilities of air
travel and the passage by Congress of
the Air Commerce act, placing assist-
ant secretaries dealing with aviation
in the departments of commerce, war
and navy, have created the beginning
of an era of commercial aviation.
"Thetime has come now," Mr. Hop-
~pins concluded, "to put that equip-
ment to work, for, if we are going to
get out of the military aviation stage,
we must have airplanes that can sup-
port themselves in the air financially
as well as mechanically."

STUDENTS WILL VOTE
ON PROPOSED UNION
AMENDMENTS TONIGHT
CHANGES INCLUDE PLAN TO
MAKE ANNUAL REFUNDS
TO PAID MEMBERS
MEETING TO BE BRIEF
600 Members Must Attend To Have
Quorum; Two.-Thirds Majority
Necessary For Passage
Members of the Michigan Union,
automatically comprising all male
students of the University, will meet
at 7:45 tonight in the Union assembly
hall to vote on the proposed amend-
ments to the Union constitution. In-
asmuch as no other business has
been planned for this gathering, it is
expected that the meeting will be
brief. Six hundred members must be

present before action may be taken.
The board of directors recently
adopted these amendments to take
care of the question concerning the
requisites for life membership which
arose last spring when the Board of
Regents decided to increase Union ele-
ment of tuition from $6 to $10.
To Credit Tution
Under the proposed amendments
there would be no participating life
members, student members replacing
that classification. Present partici-
pating life members would, under the
suggested change, be given $10 credit
toward their life membership from
this fall's tuition, the same amount to
be credited from each succeeding tui-
ion until the life membership fee of
50 has been paid.
Fully paid life members will be
given a $10 refund from this fall's
tuition, under the proposed plan; also
in any succeeding year, fully paid
life members will be given the $10
refund from their tuition. This af-
ects particularly those such as law
r medical students who may have al-
ready obtained ilife memberships, but
who, under the present system, con-
tinue paying an annual Union fee in
their tuition. Should the amendments'
not be adopted at the meeting tonight,
the present condition, in which the
Union element of the tuition is paid
by all men students, and is merely an
annual charge otherwise uneredited,
will continue.
Professor Gives Opinion
Concerning the suggested changes.
Prof. H. C. Anderson of the engineer-
ing college who is a member of the
board of directors of the Union stated
yesterday, "It is my opinion that the
proposed amendments are, fair and
are progressive step in the matter
of life membership. These provisions,
I believe, clear up the questions which
have arisen concerning .life member-
ship. These provisions are far seeing
and will take care of all possible situ-
ations that may arise in the future."
The Student council, meeting last
Thursday, adopted the following reso-
lution: "Be it resolved that the Stu-
dent council, as representatives of the
student body, believing the proposed
amendments to the constitution to be
beneficial to the interests of all men
students, recommend that all men of
the University be present at the gen-
eral meeting to be held next Wednes-
day, Nov. 17, and vote favorably there-
on."
Sections Reprinted
Several sections of the amendments
read as follows:
"Article III, Section 2, Paragraph
1. Student members. Every student
of the regular session of the Univer-
sity shall become a student member
upon paying such tuition fees as-may
be prescribed by the Board of Regents,
including the portion of such fees des-
ignated as the 'Union Fee,' such mem-
bership to continue during the period
for which he has paid tuition, except
that it shall immediately expire if he
withdraws from the University before
the end of the college year."
"Any student who shall be in resi-
dence in the University as a Student
member after September 1, 1926, and
who has before that date made par-
tial payments on a Life membership
subscription shall receive further
credit towards the payment of such
subscription for the full amount of
Union fees thereafter paid by him.
Upon his completion of the payment
of the amounts required to become a
Life member, every student shall be
exempt from further fees for member-
ship."
"Article III, Section 8. All other
obligations for Life membership sub-
scriptions incurred before Sept. 1,
1926, shall remain in full force and
be governed by this article as it read-
before this amendment except that any

TELEPHONE LINES SEVERED, RIVERS
OVERFLOW WHEN STORM HITS EAST

(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Nov. 16.-A southerly
gale accompanied by heavy rainfall
whipped across the eastern states to-
day, leaving in its wake overflowing
rivers, damaged buildings and flood-
ed mines, crippling communication
lines and reaping havoc on small
crafts in rivers and harbors.
No loss of life was reported directly
applicable to the storm, although sev-
eral crossing accidents were believed
to have been caused by drivers being
confused by the rain and wind.
Probably the greatest damage was

ongahela and Allegheny rivers. In
northwest Virginia, scores were driven
from homes invaded by flood waters.
In eastern Pennsylvania, water was
reported higher than any time since
1914, and coal mines in the Schamo-
kin district were forced to shut down.
As it swept across New Jersey, the
gale blew down the wall of a new
theatre an: capsized a tug stranded
on a sand bar off Atlantic City.
In Massachusetts the damage was
confined principally to broken win-
dows and crippled communication
lines. Boston reported a record high

Construction and equipment of an
airport for Ann Arbor would be great i
aid to the University in giving instruc-t
tion in its new courses devoted to 1
aeronautics, in the opinion of G. H.1
Hoppins, secretary of the Stout Air-i
planes Motor company. Practical
training in actual flying could bef
mingled with the lectures on theory,
should the city equip a landing field,1
he stated in an interview followingI
his address before the Chamber of
Commerce yesterday.
The course, as planned at the pres-
ent time, he declared, is the best that
can be devised under present condi-
tions-devoting the school year to in-
struction in theory and the summer

Furthering his advocation of the
use of the local airport for field prac-
tice, in case one is equipped for Ann
Arbor, he asserted that in all proba-
bility the army officials would be will-
ing to cooperate with the University
and city in using it for practical in-
struction.
Although the course as it will be
I given may be adequate for preparing
aviators for military flights, Mr.
Hoppins does not believe that it alone
is sufficient to prepare the student
for civil aviation. A different proposi-
tion is involved here, he stated, in
