Launches Attack upon Ant-Vivisetion
Movement which is Current in ,
Country Today
'The medical profession stands just
as high in any community as it de-
serves," Dr. Charles H. Mayo, of
Rochester, Minn., told the members of
Galens, honorary junior medical so-
ciety, at an informal dinner last night
in the nurses' dining room of the Uni-
versity hospital. "Doctors who take
part in public work have in conse-
quence a higher view of the profession
as a whole. This is gradually coming
to be recognized." k 1(
Dr. Mayo used for an example the
city or county health officer, who he
claimed was the lowest paid of public
servants of his class. He said that
one practitioner is picked who does
not rank even near the top of the com-
munity practice, usually one who is
young and has not had muchsuccess
in building up his business. The
choice goes the rounds until it falls
on whoever will take it. The speaker
stated that the only way in which the
medical business "could be raised, for
the doctors, was in the cultivation of
the public.
"The profession is forever depend-
ent upon the public for its hospitals,"'
he continued, "and thus the problem
assumes the proportions of a hand-out
proposition. Medicine can't support
"In connection with this, a doctor
who .goes to a small town or city
may have a hard time in getting his
business, but once gaining it, he re-
tains it. In large cities there is a con-
stantly shifting roll of population, and
this distracts from the stability of
any practice. This should be consider-
ed } y those who are just be inning.
Medicine must look to the younger
men for the development and organi-
zation which will improve circum-
Dr. Mayo stressed the importance of
the cultivation of public health work,
especially in connection with children.+
He said that at present the exami-
nation of school children up to the
age of 16 is a problem because it is
carried on through the parents for thej
most part and is too vague. "If these]
children can be made the responsi-1
bility of the communities as regards,
their health," h said, "they in turn
willrdemand it for their own children
and a worthy precedent wil have been
established. States, officially and1
through the medical societies are be-
ginning to carry on the health pu-
blicity work to a greater extent." !
Dr. Mayo inadvertently launched
-n atack upon the anti-vivisection,
movement which is current in the
cguntry today. He said that there was
betwxeen five and seven million dollars
in endowments today for the further-
ance of this, and that it had for the
most part been culled from those who
knew nothing of the movement, but
had been deceived by its leaders as to
the motives. He cited England as an
example of what the future may bring
if doctors do not put a stop to such
a tendency, saying that there was very
little work now done in London on
animals because of the red tape in-
volved in procuring permission to
work upon them, thus hampering re-
search. He stated that the Research
Institute of Londontconfined itsref-
forts alnost entirely to other varieties
of experiment.
"An instance of this could be seen
during the late war," he said, "when
the use of poisonous gases by the
enemy necessitated experiment in
them by mhe Allies. This experiment
was hampered by the restraining laws
against vivisection. If the London
scientists had taken measures for its
repeal at that time, they could have
demonstrated the vital need of vivi-
section to the public."
Dr. Mayo was in Ann Arbor yester-
day in connection with the first of
the two lecture programs which he

sponsors anually, and which are;
known as the Mayo lectures, having
been endowed by him and his brother
two years ago. The second of the pro-
groms will be given at a later date.
For the two years past the first lec-
ture has been given by Dr. William
Mayo, that of last year being given in
conjunction with the dedication of the
new University hospital. The subject
on which Dr. Mayo spoke yesterday
afternoon in Natural Science auditor-
ium was, "Developmental Anomalies."'
The address was of a formal and
technical nature and was intended
particularly for the students and
faculty of the medical school, accord-

In relation to the question whether
a college game has become a big busi-
ness, which was recently raised and
effectively answered in the athletic
fmemorandum of John L. Griffith, com-
i missioner of athletics in the Big Ten,
Fielding H. Yost, in yesterday's inter-
view, declared that "professionalism
has to do with the players them-
selves." "It has no connection," he
continued, "to the management 'of
athletics; charges of that nature are
called 'commercialism,' and were suf-
ficiently answered in Thursday's in-
"In order to properly serve their
purpose in education, athletics must
be maintained on an absolutely ama-
teur basis. This opinion does not
mean that great numbers should not
tsee the contests, nor that large gate
receipts, if properly used, are detri-
mental. On the contrary, this income
makes it possible to administer a pro-
gram more nearly as it should be ad-
ministered; for an extensive plant,
much equipment, and a competent
staff are necessary if we are to pro-
vide a program of physical training
foir all the students, as should be the
aim. Incomes from inter-school con-
tests furnish the funds with which to
supply soie of these necessities and
to that extent lessen the burden of
taxation which would otherwise have
to provide for physical education in its
entirety," Coach Yost said.
"No boy should be permitted to play

Wilbur Refuses To Betray Navy Trust;
New Testifies In Favor Of j
Fall's Integrity
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 10.--The de-
fense rested in behalf of Edward L.
Doheny in the oil conspiracy trial to-
day after the veteran oil man had
withstood a forceful three hour cross-
examination and Secretary of the
Navy Wilbur, appearing under sub-
poena, had firmly refused to disclose
the navy department's 1921 war scare
secrets of the Pacific.
Postmaster General New, the first
witness in the independent presenta-
tion of evidence in behalf of Albert B.
Fall, former secretary of the interior,
then testified he knew Fall's reputa-
tion for honesty and integrity to be
good. He was excused without cross-
The Fall attorneys plan to complete
their case at tomorrow's half day ses-
sion, probably without calling the for-
mer cabinet member to the stand in
his own defense.
i Doheny's cross-examination reveal-
ed financial transactions between him-
self and Fall since the latter left the
cabinet in 1923, but only a $5,000 just
before the trial began was admitted
to the records. SpecialProsecutor
Owen J. Roberts also drew from
Doheny thestatement that rFal had
acted for him, without remuneration,
in connection with a $10,000,000 loan
to the Obregon government of Mexico
three years ago, when the de la
Huerta revolutionary forces menaced
the Olbregon regime.
The loan, in the form of advance
payments on tax assessments against
Doheny's properties, has been repaid.
Previous to today's testimony, there
had been no recital of money transac-
tions between Doheny and Fall since
the $100,000 cash loan to the cabinet
member on Nov. 30, 1921, when
Doheny interests were bidding for the
naval oil contract and leases.
Union Constitution

All sections of the Union constitu-
tion and its amendments jare being
gathered and arranged, and will be
printed in pamphlet form soon, it was
announced yesterday by Lester F.
Johnson, '27L, president of the Union.
The work has been made particu-
larly difficult, inasmuch as an up to

in entirety have not been printed in
six years, according to Clarence W.

based oni the principle of play for
play's sake;' the theory of every game
is to gain a given goal by overcoming
whatever obstacles present them-
selves. To a greater or lessor degree
all tendencies toward professionalism
commercialize this ideal of overcom-
ing obstacles for the sake of tfie satis-
faction that comes with success, and
to that extent rob it c ,muni of its
keenest satisfaction.

Russia. The incident caused special
friendship on the part of Germany for
comment because, while the military
and commercial groups in Berlin are
I credited with being particularly in-
terested in developing the ties be-
tween Germany and Russia, Dr.
Streseman always has been cited as
the leading German who turned to-
ward Europe for the best orientation
of Germany's future.
In the meantime, the group of for- I
eign ministers which has been study-
ing the problem of bringing to an end
interallied control of German arna-
mnits, struggled for two hours with-
out reaching an agreement. It is
understood that the chief difficulty
now center on Great Britain's
objection to German exportation of
arms to Russia which, it is fear'ed,
reach China ultimately.
Dr. Streseman is understood to have
given new assurances on this ques-
tion as well as on the dismantling of
German fortresses. The foreign
ministers adjourned until tomorrow
to await reports from Paris where the
Allies conference of ambassadors also
is struggling with the problem of
German arimaments.
Glaciologist Will Speak Of Scientific
Results Of 1924 Trip To
Mount Everest
Speaking on "Some Scientific Re-
sults of the 1924 Expedition to Mount
Everest," Mr. N. E. Odell, geologist
and glaciologist of the climbing party
will give an illustrated lecture this
afternoon at 4:15 o'clock in Natural
Science auditorium.
Mr. Odell was one of the party of
twelve prominent scientists in the
1924 expedition, acting in the capacity
of chief oxgen officer as well as look-
ing after the general health of the
other members.
In spite of adverse weather condi-
tions the party set a new altitude rec-
ord for mountain climbing, bettering
the 26,000 foot record of the 1922
expedition by more than 2,000 feet.
Oxygen supplied through compressed
air tanks was necessary for the men
to breathe properly in the rarefied
atmosphere of the upper mountain
glacier altitudes. Although the sum-
mit of Mount Everest was not actually
reached, the party came closer to their
goal than any previous expedition be-
cause of their plan of establishing
night camps at different altitudes as
they ascended.
Arrangements are now being made
by the Royal Geographical society
through the Tibetan government for
the permission to make another at-
tempt in the near future.

couples as Jean Goldkette's Orange
Blossom orchestra opened the Sopho-
more Prom of the class of 1929 in
the Union ballroom last night.
Brilliant hues of the evening gown,
together with the sombre black and
white of formal dress, were set off
by the background of Christmas col-
ors that adorned the ballroom. Dec-
orations featured Christmas trees with
hangings of red streamers, .green
palms and ferns, red poinsettas, and

a "29" banner which hung at the north
end of the room.
The patrons' booth, arranged at the
south end of the room, was encircled
and overhung by the dark shades of
tall, drooping ferns and trees. The
lounges and chairs in the booth were
grouped around a flowing fountain
which, illuminated by red light, former
the center background.
