SIMPSON1 INSTITUTE IS
FORMALLY DEDICATED
BY RECENTCEREMONY
NEW UNIT WILL BE USED FOR
RESEARCH IN fELD OF
PERNICIOUS ANEMIA
SLYFIELD PRESENTS GIFT
Mrs. Catherine McDonald Simpson
Gives Building; Little, Christian
And Cabot Speak
Culminating lengthy and elaborate
preparations, the Thomas Henry Sim-
pson Institute for Medical Research
was formally opened and dedicated
last Thursday with a reception for fac-
ulty and friends in the afternoon, and
ceremonies of presentation at night in
the amphitheater of the University
hospital. The institute, which is in-
tended for research work in pernicous
anemia, is the gift of Mrs. Catherine
McDonald Simpson of Detroit, in mem-
ory of her husband, and it. is instru-
mental in bringing the research means
and equipment of the University to a
standard which is unsurpassed in the
country.
Donor's Purpose Described
The formal presentation of the gift
was made by Henry S. Slyfield of
Detroit, personal representative of
Mrs. Simpson, who told something of
the history of the donation and of its
donor, whose wish it had been to
make some lasting contribution to
humanity. The principle address of
the evening was given by Dr. Henry
A. Christian, of Iarvard university
and the Peter Bent Brigham hospital
of Boston, and acceptance on the part
of the Regents of the University was
made by President Clarence Cook
Little. Dean Hugh Cabot, of the Medi-
cal school, spoke a few words of ap-
preciation for the faculty and hospital.
Hope To Find Cause Of Anemia
"If within these walls the cause of
pernicious anemia is discovered,"
said Dr. Christian, "and it is our hope
that this may'be the great good fortune
of the Thompson Henry Simpson In-
stitute for Medical. Research, merely
a larger vista for exploration will be
opened. With cause known, preven-
tion and cure more intelligently may
be sought. If these are found, the
scope for work at once enlarges to ap-
ply the knowledge, obtained in the
study of pernicious anemia, to other
related diseases that take their yearly
toll of life and are causes of suffering
and disability to human beings.
"Failure to solve the problem set
is not a failure in the usefulness of
the institute. Laws of fundamental
importance to science may be discov-
ered, whose value transcends any dis-
covery connected with pernicious ane-
mia. Methods, applicable in many re-
lationships, may be evolved. Month
by month and year by year young men
are being trained and moulded by the
struggle to solve the problems under
investigation; these, in later years, be-
come investigators prepared to solve
other problems. All research institu-
tions are educational institutions, in
the larger sense of the word."
Speaker Advises Policy
Dr. Christian concluded with the ad-
vice that the directors of the institute
be left to follow their own policies
and methods, believing that in this
manner they might best work out their
problems.
This view was also stressed by Dean
Cabot, when he said that he consid-
ered it of first importance that al-
though the ass9ciations of such estab-
lishment shuld be intimate, they
also should, be free from entangling
alliances.,'
He commended the appointment of

the director and assistant director to
the positions of professor and assis-
tant professor respectively of inter-
nal medicine inasmuch as this associ-
ation would tend to weld them more
firmly into the faculty and the staff of
the hospital.
Little Praises Precedent
President Little built the keynote
of his acceptance around the prece-
dent which had been set by the gift of
establishing scientific centers at tax-
supported institutions. In further-
ance of this he said:
"Often there has been built up a
point of view, based on ignorance, to
the effect that inasmuch as an insti-
tution is supported by the tax-payers
of a state, there is no need of support
of any of its projects from servic
sources. It is doubtful whether such
objectors have clearly seen the ful
extent of the problem, or whether they
have analyzed accurately the condi
tions which actually exist.
"No gift that the University wil
ever receive can have about it mor
delicate and beautiful sentiment thai

Trevino Urges More
Mexican Production
(.y Associated Press)
MEXICO CITY, Feb. 14.-Only
through increased production by Me x-
ican workers can Mexico gain econ-
omic independence and thus rid itself
of the "nightmare of domination by
the United States," Ricardo Trevino,
secretary-general of C. R. 0. N. or
Regional Confederation of Mexico
Workers, today told a labor mass,
meeting.
Trevino appealed to every worker
as a patriotic duty to produce more
Mexican products of every kind and
to boycott foreign products as much
as possible, "especially those from the
United States."
Only economic independence andp
not arms of war can make Mexico
really free, he said: Trevino then
charged that "imperialism" by the
United States always has attempted'
to keep Mexico in a constant state of
turmoil, impeding Mexican recon-
struction and the development of na-
tionalism so that American interests
might continue dominating business
and exploiting Mexican national re-
sources.
GREAT BRITAIN LANDS
TROOPS AT SHANGHAI
Agreement About Concessions Is Still.
Unsigned As English
Troops Arrive
NEGOTIATIONS HALTED
(By Associated Press)
HANKOW, Feb. 14.-Great Britain
landed troops at Shanghai today, and
simultaneously it was announced at
the Nationalist (Cantonese) foreign
office here that the agreement be-
tween the two governments concern-
ing the British concessions at Hankow
and Kiukiang remained unsigned.
While the negotiators, Foreign Min-
ister Chang of the Nationalist govern-
ment and Owen O'Malley, British
charge de affairs, refused to make a
statement concerning their confer-
ence, it was reported that their nego-
tiations would not be resumed.
The conferences were first suspend-
ed several days ago when Foreign
Minister Chang insisted that Great
Britain give assurances that she
would not land troops at Shanghai be-
fore he would sign the agreement re-
garding the British cencession.
.WOLVERINE HOCKEY TEAM
DEFEATS STATE, 2=1, IN
FIRST OVERiIME PERIOD
Michigan pucksters gained their see-
I ond victory over the Michigan State
college sextet by a score of 2 to 1 in
i an overtime game at the Coliseum last
night. The first score of the contest
came 10 minutes after the starting
whistle, when Gabler, Wolverine de-
fense man, eluded several State play-
ers and shot the puck into the net.
Play during the second period was
slow when the Michigan State men
attempted many long shots, most of
them 'being from the center of the'
rink. Kaiser and Conklin failed to
count in this period. In the third per-
iod of play, Kennedy followed through
a wide shot, passed the puck back to
I Conklin, standing in front of the net
who shot it past the Michigan goal
tender.
The winning point for the Wol-
verines came during the first five
minutes of overtime play, when Larson
took the puck the entire length of the
rink and shot from a short distance.
Conklin and Hauptli threatened to
score at any time but all of their at-
tempts but were knocked down by
.Tnes, Michigan goal tender. Gabler,

tManey and Larson played outstanding-
ly for the victors. Seven fouls were
cal n. four on the visitors and three
Jon Michigan men.

Detroit, Feb. 14--The United States
robably will be drown into the
eague of Nations through the "force

losson, of the history department of
e University of Michigan, said here'
day at a meeting of teachers.
"We will go on protesting and kick-

He reviewed the work of the League

the war between Greece and Bul-

HAo SATIRs WILL
BE GIVEN_ BY MIMES11
irst Of Productions Since Opera Are
To Occupy Mimes Theater For
Four Performances
PLAYS START TONIGHT'
Two plays, "Anna Janska, the Bol-
ievick Empress" and "The Man of
estiny," both by George Bernard
haw, will be given for four perfor-
ances beginning tonight in the
imes theater by the Mimes of the
ichigan Union. This is the first pro-
ction that this group has presented I
nce the opera, and rehearsals have
een in progress since Christmas va-
Ation.
"Anna Janska, the Bolshevicle Em-
ess" which will be given as a pre-_
tce for the more serious work, "The
an of Destiny" is a satire on Bol-
hevism. It is one of George Bernard
haw's most recent plays and has sel-
omn been presented in America. Ac-
ording to critics it is a very ridicu-
us burlesque on Shaw's conception
f the practices of the Bolshevicks.
harles Livingstone, '28L, plays the
:ading male role in this play. He ap-
eared in "The Last Warning" and in
he Michigan Union opera two years
go. He was also president of both
omedy club and Mimes.
The other play, "The Man of Des-
ny," is a more serious work of
haw's satirizing great men. Officers
f Mimes believe that they have at-
ained a great deal of action and a
umber of good stage pictures in the
.roduction, something which is con-
idered difficult in this play. Napoleor
he man of destiny, will be acted by
arl C. Fleishman, a member of the
aculty of the public speaking depart-
ment. Robert Wetzel, '28, Kenneth
ing, '27, and Richard Woellhaf, '27,
ll experienced in previous plays an(
n the opera, will play the other char-
eters. These plays are the first Shaw
ramas that Mimes has given since
Great Catherine."
Complete settings for both produc-
ions have been erected by the Mimes
heater studio. Otto Schiller, scenery
esign artist who painted the sets for
he opera, has designed the scenery
or these plays also, and the sets have
een built under the direction of Fred
Redmond, who has succeeded Fred
MacPherson as head carpenter. A
alse proscenium of black velvet has
been installed in the theater as a per-
manent effect, and special lighting
equipment will be used in the play.
Real food will be used in the pro-

uctiotis, special Italian bread in long
loaves having been made for the oc-
casion. The costumes have been se-
cured from the Van Horn Costuming
company of Philadelphia.
T'ickets for any one of the perfor
mances, which will be given at 8:30
tonight, tomorrow, Thursday, and Fri
day, are on sale at the box office of the
Mimes theater now, and reservations
may be made bar phone at the Union
All seats are priced at 75 cents and
though the sale has been rapid ther
is still a number of good seats re
maining for each of the performances
The next of the series of plays tha
the Mimes will give during this se
mester will be "R. U. R."

various problems and the progress of
the different phases connected with
the highway engineering situation.
Large Attendance Predicted
Invitations have been sent to prom-
inent engineers throughout the coun-
try, and indications yesterday pre-
dicted that more than 700 highway
engineers and commissioners would
arrive in the next four days to attend
the convention.
Several changes in the program for
the conference, which supersedes all
other changes, were announced today
by Prof. Rodger L. Morrison, acting
head of the highway engineering de-
partment, who is in charge of the
affair. C. E. Foster, construction en-
gineer of the state highway depart-
ment has sent word that he will be.

pressing administrative duties at -Lan-
sing. Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, of the
Colleges of Engineering and Archi-
tecture is at present in Georgia as a
guest of former Gov. Chase Osborn,
and it is not known-whether he will
return in time to act as toastmaster
for the banquet as was originally
planned.
The only change in the program is
that of Friday's plans, in which In-
spector Gustav Schink of the Detroit
traffic department will take the place
