State Legislature
For Location

Committee Looks
For Proposed

Possibility of locating the new state
tuberculosis satatorium in Ann Arbor
was considered yesterday by a com-
mittee of the state legislature which
was here looking for a site on which
to build the proposed $500,000 build-
ing. The money was proposed by the
1925 legislature but there is now a
bill before the present legislature pro-
posing repeal of the appropriations,
introduced by Sen. Seymour J. Person
of Lansing.
Although the University is in no
way interested in local "arguments for
locating the sanatorium here, the
President believes that "money can
be saved for the state by economies
in light, heat, power, and certain sal-
aries; that students of medicine can'
be given training in combatting tuber-
culosis; that research of great value
to mankind can be pursued; that pa-
tients with unusual complications can
be cared for by members of the Uni-,
versity hospital staff, and that a great
deal of modern therapeutic equip-
ment is already available." In view
of these considerations ,he is glad to
offer a free site for the new sanatori-
um if the state wishes to locate the
sanatorium in Ann Arbor.
He also stated that certain errone-
ous statements concerning the Uni-,
versity's attitude toward this matter
and toward the limiting of student
enrollment were being made. "There
is no intent to exclude the children of
taxpayers, but an attempt to insure
interest in the University by obtain-
ing students of good character and
seriousness of purpose," the Pres-
ident concluded.t

Declares No Less Than 10 to 12 Years
Needed For Properly Rounded
Medical Education
Fundamental scientific knowledge,
a broad education alon^ all lines pos-
sible, an understanding of human
nature, and intellectual integrity-]
those are the things which are abso-
lutely essential to the medical mai
in the opinion of Dean Hugh Cabot
of the Medical school in his address
yesterday afternoon in Natural Sci-
ence auditorium. Before a large audi-
ence of literary and pre-medical stu-
dents, he emphasized these points. Dr.
Cabot was speaking at the request of
Dean John R. Effinger of the literary
college, for the purpose of acquaint-
ing underclassmen of the University
with the requirements and conditions
of a medical education.
In answering the question of what
are the essential plans for a pre-
medic to pursue, Dr. Cabot first spoke
of a fundamental knowledge of sci-
ence. "Medicine is not today a sci-
ence," he said, "but it is much moreI
so than it has been in the past; it is
not, because it must deal with both
sides of humanity. There was for-
merly a great mystery involved, and
all because of the lack of actua~l
knowledge; that was where the plug
hat and the long black coat came in.
Medicine has come to be a problem of
applied science plus the great un-
known-the personality of the patient.
Believes In Broadening
"Again the policy of specializing in
one science to the detriment of the
others is not sound. The day will
surely come when the science which
has been mastered will turn and be-
come master instead. 4I do not believe
that pre-medic days should be spent
entirely on scientific work, and in fact
hope for the time when they will le
put on fields which are far different.
Much of disease is the reaction of the
individual; disease is not an entity,
but racial peculiarities are paramount
in its treatment. Broaden yourselves
while there is yet time."
Otler ways of trying the capabilities
before making a definite desision were
set forth by Dr. Cabot. Principally
among them was the test of liking
human nature as such. Without this
capacity, he said, there are many oth-
er fields in which the student would
do better. /
In regard to the intellectual honesty
he stated that there was nothing
which was more of a thorn in the side
of a community than a dishonest prac-
titioner, explaining this term to define
one who could not be truthful with
himself. Such a man was put down
as one who was neither kind to nor
thoughtful of his patients in the final
Judgment Is Important
Regarding the length of time re-
quired for a medical education, Dr.
Cabot said, "No less than 10 to 12
years will suffice for the purpose, if
the student wishes to be properly
rounded out. But judgment-the most
important factor of all cannot be
taught-bad judgment can even be
considered as sort of a congenital de-
formity. However a fair substitute
may be found in diligence of applica-
tion, which will make up for the err-
ors which are bound to occur. I

Owners Of Automobiles Who Have Not
Received Permits Are Liable
To Discipline
Letters will be mailed to presidents
of fraternities, sororities, league
houses and other organized groups
on the campus within the next few
days, requesting them to forward to
the committee on automobiles the
'names of members of the groups own-
ing cars, with the license numbers
This will be the first move of the com-
mittee to enforce the automobile
regulations this semester.
Owners of automobiles who have
not received permits to drive by the
time the names are received will be
liable to discipline. Following this
check-up, further steps to complete
the enforcement will be taken. Ap-
plications for permission to operate
cars are still being accepted at the
office of the dean of students.
The following motions were passed
by the committee at its meeting yes-
terday afternoon:I
1. All petitions to drive cars
by students who are scholastical-
ly ineligible will be denied, ex-
cept by special permission. A
"C" average is required by the
regulations passed by the Re-
2. All petitions filed by stu-
dents who drove cars without
permission last semester will beI
denied, eept by special per-
mission. Included in this group
are students who sought permits
last fall and who never called for
the cards at the office of the dean
of students, and those whose ap-
plications were incomplete and
never granted. Approximately 200
students are included in this class.
3. Petitions requesting per-
mission to drive "any car," no
license number being specified,
will be denied, except by special
4. Applications for special per-
mission in all these cases will be
considered by two sub-committees,
those from men by the three men
students on the committee, those
from women' by the three women
students on the committee.
Applications falling into these three
classes will automatically be refus-

ed by the office of the dean of stu-
dents, and the applicant may then
file his request for special permsi-j
sion, listing reasons why it shouldI
be granted, at that office.

Statement Recoimmnends Theater Owns
. ers Announce and Live lp To
Fixed Performance Policy
Free shows to University students
celebrating athletic victories will do
much to avoid a repetition of the
rushes and riots which occurred
Monday night and is the real solution
of the theater rush, according to a
statement issued yesterday by Pres-
ident Clarence Cook Little, Joseph A.
Bursley, dean of students, and three
city police commissioners, Joseph L
Arnet, Frank B. DeVine, and George
F. Kyer.
In the statement students are cited
'for their attempt to enter the theaters
by force, the police are charged with
exceeding their authority, and the
theater management is pronlinently
mentioned regarding a plan under
which students would attend the
shows gratis as part of an athletic
celebration. Elimination of the "jam-
ming and jostling incident to attempts
to enter the theaters at any general
performance" also receives attention
in the report.
The text of the statement follows:
"Tie undersigned after considering
carefully tie present relationships be-
tween students of the University and
the police force of the City of Ann Ar.
bor believe that for the sake of these
two bodies, as well as for the benefit
of the owners and managers of local
theaters and the public at large, a
brief statement of certain facts wllV
I be helpful.
(1) Students do not have, and can-
not expect, the sympathy of any law
abiding citizens when they try to
force their way against police protec-
tion into a building, owned by other
people. It is the duty of the police
to protect such property, either on
the property itself or in its neighbor
(2) Time police cannot expect the
respect or backing of any law abiding
citizens if and when they exceed their
instructions in the exercise of their
(3) The police do not of their own
choice participate in such disturb-
ances as that of March 7. The City
of Ann Arbor is asked by the 'theater
managers to provide police protection
under certain conditions and is in
duty bound to do so if it has available
(4) When a crowd of students goes
to the theater on such occasions as
that of last Monday, they go for a
"free show," which they look upon as
a part of the celebration of certain
events. Itis recognized they have no
absolute right to such entertainment,
but on many occasions in the past,
the theaters have been opened to the
students after athletic victories, mass
meetings, and the like.
f (5) When oi these occasions stu-
dents meet with police who have been
instructed to exclude them, encoun-
ters ensue and the emphasis is apt to
shift from the primary cause to the
largely unwilling public officials who
are greatly outnumbered but who
must attempt to disperse those who
are threatening the property which
they were instructed to protect.
(6) The students, in employing
more than once a method that can
never solve the situation and that
does not reach the primary cause of
dissatisfaction, have not used what
would seem to be even an ordinary
amount of common sense.
(7) It inevitaV.ixy leads to the injury
f of innocent bystanders. In the excite-
ment and confusion of a general fra-
I cas it is likely that the police do not
always use the wisest judgment in the
"*"uio otheirasgndtass I

they do not, they are guilty of a sim-
ilar lack of control and judgment to
that shown by the students. Neither
group is to be commended. The offen-
ders in both groupsshould be pun-
fished if they are detected.
(8) The students have expressed
the belief that if the managers of the
theaters would advertise in advance
to give a certain number of free
shows on the occasion of particular
celebrations, it would go far to remove
the cause of such disturbances.
(9) We believe that it will be t
the advantage of all concerned if the
theater owners and managers would
announce and live un to a fixed policy
in this regard. The theater managers
should realize that a University town

Frick Jests With Dea th As Life Lingers
Through Means of Artificial Respiration

Michigan's success in collegiate
athletics, especially during the past
few years, has so kept Varsity ath-
letics in the limelight that intramural I
activities have been relegated to an
inconspicuous position.
Back in 1913, when collegiate ath-
letics had already become well estab-
lished, the intramural department at
Michigan was set up by Floyd Rowe
as a branch of the athletic association.
A few years of development soon saw
this department placed as. a leader

The impetus which the war gave to
athletics, and the increased enroll-

the efficient reorganization of the de-
partment. The 13 types of athletic
events offered that year, 1919, attract-
ed more than 3,000 students, and the
