First of Series of Conferences
to Demonstrate Advances


in Child Betterment.
Addressing a conference held at
the University hospital Tuesday
morning, Dr. Julius H. Hess, profes-
sor of pediatrics in the University
of 11-nois Medical school, spoke on
the diseases of- infancy and child-
hood. The conference was conduct-
ed under the auspices of the Cou-;
zens Children fund of Michigan andP
directed by the University Medicalf
school, in conjunction with the
Michigan State Medical society.
Doctor Hess spoke on "Diseases
of the Alimentary Tract of Infancy
and Childhood." He presented a,
workable classification of conditions
commonly seen with practical me-
thods of treatment. A round table
discussion was held after the talk.
Should Talk To Child.
Miss Frances Floore, of the diet-
etic department of the University
hospital addressed the gathering on
the- subject of "The Teaching of
Diet to Children." Miss Floore de-
monstrated the beneficial results
accruing from explaining to the
child 'suffering from a particular
disease many of the details of his
condition together with the rea-
sons for treatment. "In order to
obtain the greatest possible co-op-
eration of the child in effecting a
cure," Miss Floore said, "he must
know about his disease and know
what foods to eat and from what
foods to abstain."
After luncheon, talks were given
by .Dr. David M. Cowie, professor
of pediatrics and infectious dis-
eases; Dr. Udo J. Wile, professor of
dermatology and syphilology; Dr.
Moses Cooperstock, instructor in
pediatrics and infectious diseases;
and Guy L. Kiefer.
Have Worked For Year.
The conference was the first of
a series of demonstrations request-
ed by the Couzens Fund committee
for the purpose of bringing the best
methods of and latest developmf'nts
in the care and the problems of the
child to the cognizance of the medi-
cal profession. For the past year,
the University Medical school has
been united with the State Medical
Society in developing extra-mural
post graduate education and the
conference held Tuesday was a
manifestation of the work being
done by these bodies along the line
of child care and development.
' The Couzens fund, sponsor of the
'clinics, was established last year by
Senator Couzens for the express
purpose of bettering the conditions
of infancy and childhood. Senator
Couzens endowed ten million dol-
lars with the stipulation that it be,
used up within twenty-five years,
or at an expenditure of $700,000 a

Clements Library Has
New Bible Collection
Three Bibles, the first to be
printed in America in a foreign
language, are now in the possession
of the William L. Clements library.
They were printed in German by
Christopher Saur of Germantown,
Pa., the first in 1743, the second in
1763, and the last in 1776. Because
the Oxford Press had a monopoly
on Bibles edited in English, the first
American printers had to issue
them in foreign languages for a
time, or not at all.
Curiously enough, the third edi-
tion of tloe Saur Bible is the rarest.,
The unbound sheets were stored in
his Germantown office when the
British troops entered. In need of

Miss Brannan has been touring
