The Department of Religious Edu-
cation of the national council of the
Protestant Episcopal church has a
fund known as the Turner Legacy
which was left for the purpose of
providing for college students a ser-
ies of talks on the Christian faith.
Under the terms of the legacy, the
department has invited the Rt. Rev.
Arthur Foley Winnington-Ingram,
Lord Bishop of London, to visit cer-
tain universities in the United States
and Canada during the months of Oc-
tober and November. The University
of Michigan is on his itinerary and
the faculty and students, therefore,
will have the opportunity of enter-
taining this distinguished churchman
and listening to his addresses dn the
11th, 12th, and 13th of this month.
The program, as arranged by the
Student council and others for the
Lord Bishop's entertainment and
meetings with the faculty and stu-
dents, has been returned with his ap-
proval to the Rev. Henry Lewis, the
"Key man" in Michigan. This pro-
gram, in Its main features, will be
followed by the various committees
having charge of the details in order
to eliminate all possible chances of
interference that hnight follow unnec-
essary changes. The program is as

As the Bishop claims he is not aI
good sleeper on our Pullman cars the
schedule gives him the opportunity
to rest after his arrival here from1
Chicago on Monday morning. Reports
of his activities at other places would1
indicate that a night spent on a train1
does not quench his desire for a game I
of tennis or golf. In this connection;
it is reported that.the Lord Bishop,1
despite his years, can hold his own
with men many years his junior on
either the golf links or the tennis
courts. Those players, in either
game, who happen to be his oppo-
nents must keep their eyes on the,
ball or they may be in for a soundl
drubbing. Opponents and partners
for either game will be held in read-
iness should he elect one or the oth-
er instead of spending the mornings
and afternoon in the quiet of his own
The object of the Bishop's visit is
to get in personal touch with young
faculty members and the students.
Many requests have been receivedi
from the hospitable residents of Ann
Arbor to entertain him in their homes,

but those in charge of arranging the
schedule believe that the Michigan'
Union lends itself most admirably as
the central place where the Bishop
and his companions, Mr. Blyth and
the Rev. 11. C. Thomas, the Bishop's
chaplain, may meet thse students with1

the informality and freedom they so
much desire.
Particular emphasis is laid on the
point that the Bishop wants to get
in personal touch with individual stu-
dents. In order to accomplish this
purpose he especially asks that stu-
dents make arrangements, through his
chaplain, for personal conferences
during those hours assigned for them
on the schedule.
He has made these characteristic
stipulations: "I clearly understand
that the main object of my visit was
to speak to the young men at the uni-
versities, and have time to see some
of them personally. You might also
arrange for me to play tennis or
squasl rackets or golf with some of
them, as I still play all of these games
pretty well. My idea would be to
give a general talk on the Christian
faith and rather invite them to state
their difficulties to me in private af-
terwards. I will leave it to you en-
tirely with a hint to leave plenty of
time for fresh air and exercise with
-euios eas o um I uoui Sunoo esoql
thing personallycof the young men of
the country. I can do this better if
I have time left to play games with
Any students who desire to try con-
clusions with the Bishop on the ten-
nis court or golf links should make
his request for an assignment through
the chaplain.
Both the Ann Arbor Golf club and
the Barton Hills Country club have
extended the courtesies of their clubs
to the Bishop and his companions
during their stay in Ann Arbor.
Recreation grounds will not be lack-
ing if our distinguished guests find
the time in their short stay to tuck
in a few games each day for pleasant
The University aas a whole has an
unusual opportunity to meet and en-
tertain one of the world's greatest
and most famous prelates of the day.
He desires to come in personal con-
tact with American university life
and to give his help and counsel to
those youths of our country who have
need of it in solving their own per-
sonal problems. The fulfillment of
this mission to Ann Arbor depends
upon the reception our student body
is prepared to give him.
Two Hundred Are Homeless As Water
Surrounds Beardston When
Levees Break
(By Associated Press)
BEARDSTOWN, Ill., Oct. 6.--Waters
from two broken levees made Beards-
town an island tonight, entirely sur-
rounded bl flood tides and with no
avenue of escape except a railroad
over which trains are being operated
through six inches of water.
The torrent of Lost creek, which
burst a levee Monday, advanced late
today and met the overflow of the
Illinois river at the Beardstown-
Springfield highway, where water to-
night was six inches deep. The island
thus formed at its widest point is more
than three miles in width.
Two hundred were homeless tonight
and quartered in tents provided by the
Salvation army and the Illinois na-
tional guard.
The funeral of the flood's only cas-
ualty to date will be held tomorrow
when services are conducted for Mrs.
C. E. Soule, wife of the city health
officer, who died last night of pneu-
monia following exposure. The body
will be taken by train to Byron, Ill..
for burial. It is impossible to get
from the city to the cemetery.
The Illinois river reached a state
tonight of 24 feet, 11 inches, a rise of
more than six inches today and only
two inches short of the record rise
of 1922. Forecasters say the stream

wil stand at 25.3 feet by tomorrow.
The Central Illinois Public Service
company worked to maintain the city's
gas supply in three feet of water, but
one main burst today and left the
business houses without gas.

DETROIT, Mich., Oct. 6.--Action of

the noon recess today he had been
formally notified that an invitation
extended him in July to speak at the
Y. M. C. A. meeting next Sunday had
been withdrawn.
D)enounces Action
John T. Frey, president of the Ohio,
State federation, prefaced his inter-;
rogation of Green with a vigorous de-

men and a reply to the public infer-
ence of the Detroit Board of Com-

Federation of Labor speakers who had
been invited to fill Detroit pulpits
were not in harmony with the tradi-
tional ideals of American patriotism.

which the labor speakers named were
characterized as "men who are ad-

"if it is in truth fact that a speech
by a representative of the American
Federation of Labor would represent
a deviation from the program for
which the Christian church is main-

Scheme Includes Foreign Loans To Be
Distributed Among New York And
Various European Cities
(By Associated Press)
BRUSSELS, Belgium, Oct. 6.-The
Belgium government under the dicta-
torial powers recently conferred upon
it by Parliament, is expected to an-
nounce shortly a plan for the stabili-
zation of the Belgian franc.
This will include a foreign loan of
from $50,000,000 to $60,000,000, of
which New York will be expected to
take at least half. The remainder will
be distributed to London, Amsterdam,
Berlin, and Basle. No steps have been
taken to negotiate such a loan, how-
ever, nor has the cabinet yet formally
announced its decision.
M. Franck, governor of the Bank of
Belgium, who has been in London, to-
day related to the council of ministers
the result of his London conversa-
tion. Although no statement was is-
sued, it is understood that he informed
the cabinet that the principal banks
of issue in countries having the gold
standard had promised their aid to the
Belgium National bank. This aid
would be forthcoming as soon as the
government thought it opportune to
make an attempt to stabilize the franc
and as soon bas it had floated a foreign
loan necessary for that operation.
NEW YORK, Oct. 6.-Early flota-
tion of an international loan for Bel-
gium, long delayed by political and
financial obstacles, is now viewed as
a certainty by American bankers. At
least half of the issue which was ex-
pected to total $60,000,000 or more will
be sold in the United States by bank-
ing houses which previously have rep-
resented the Belgian government.
Expressing their satisfaction with
the progress made by Belgium under
Finance Minister Franqui in solving
currency problems, leading bankers
said they were hopeful that the way
would be cleared for giving further
assistance to the stabilization pro-

Class of 1930:
Some questions have been ask-
ed concerning practical ways of
developing loyalty and the spir-
it of service to the University,
the State, and the Nation, which
I most inadequately treated in
my talk to the members of the
class of 1930 at the Union.
Many methods for developing
an appreciation of values and
loyalty based on subordination
of self interest to that of the
group exist. Among the most
valuable is the unselfish partic-
ipation in the courses of train-
ing offered by the R. O. T. C. at
the University. These courses
are open, to freshmen. The more
or less similar type of training
which I received in 1916 and
1917 together with a close study
of the work of these units have
Iconvinced me that they form
one of the most available and
valuable means of developing a
sense of proportion. To those
members of the class of 1930
who are interested in a practi-
cal method of self development,

eration of the courses mention-

Issuing a challenge to all social
workers to seek sincerely and boldly
for the truth, President Clarence Cook
Little in addressing the opening ses-
sion of the Michigan State Confer-
ence of Social Work last night at the
Union assured them truth and truth
only will give the social workers a
sound philosophy.
President Little indicated that the
social worker of today is too often
satisfied with appealing to the emo-
tions rather than to seek for causes
and the truth. He told how emotion
truly affects generosity but continu-
ed, "appealing to the emotions may
help to alleviate human suffering but
it does not prevent it."
Traces Medical History
To make more clearly the manner
in which social science should be car-
ried out, President Little traced the
history of medicine. He told his au-
dience how medicine started as an
art and was originally linked up with
the mysterious. "Doctors worked on
the emotions and fears, the suspi-
cions and superstitions of their fol-
lowers in the early days, and medicine
was linked up with religion. But at
a later date people became curious.
They firied to outwit their own super-
stitionA and find causes and preven-
tatives for their mental conditions
and sicknesses. They learned the
structure of the body, the function of
the brain, and the working of the cir-
culatory system. These discoveries
man found were'more valuable to him
than gold. A new philosophy was in-
troduced in the field of medicine. To-
day, medicine is a science, and sci-
ence is the vehicle of righteousness
and progress in the search for truth."
President Little said that there has
been a parting of the ways between
medicine and that religion which
tends to obscure truth, but pointed
out that there has been a new part-
nership formed between religion and
the medical science. With science
furnishing the truths and preventa-
tives in the field of medicine, and re-
ligion furnishing the qualities of
mercy, sympathy, service, and affec-
tion for fellowmen, President Little
explained the result is a real combi-
Social Science Similar
The social science is going through
this same development as medicine
had to go through, he pointed out and
continued, "when we reduce social
problems to a broader base, we can
hope to find sources and prevention."
President Little indicated that a
real partnership between the social
science and religion has not yet been
effected. "The relation of denomina-
tional religion and social work is of
long standing," he said. "It has of-
ten resulted in placing the minor
group problem above the most impor-
tant problem of the whole." He said
that religion should furnish the four
qualities in the field of social science
as it does in the field of medicine,
but when it has furnished these qual-
ities religion has served its purpose
and should not hinder social work as
a science in its search for real truth.
Lapp Speaks
John A. Lapp, president of the Na-
tional Conference of Social Work,
was the next speaker. He traced the
history of social work briefly and
showed how the organization which
he represents is trying to carry out
the advice given by President Little.
"Social work began as a purely
charitable enterprise, taking care of
the sick and little attention was paid
to the sources and preventatives" he
Mr. Lapp said that social workers
are now interested in sources and
preventatives, but the problems which
confront them are great and require
much time for remedy. "Sickness
and unemployment are the principal
causes of poverty," said Mr. Lapp.
"We know that, but as yet have not
produced a remedy. There must be
some system devised whereby people
can be guarded financially against.

Pointing out that we are living in an

terview, attributed the promotion of
