other reasons, the raccoon coat, once so popular onf
the university campus, has not been very evident this;

quite the thing in popular magazines, has gone outt
of style. Of course, there are still a few heavy, fur

(Editor's Note: This is the fif-
teenth of a series of articles on out-
standing members of the University
faculty. Another in the series will
appear in this column next week.)
By E. Jerome Petit.
The primary reason that Mich-
igan's College o f Architecture
stands among the leaders of mod-
ern art schools, is that it has at its
head Prof. Emil Lorch.
It was mainly through the efforts
of Professor Lorch and his faculty
that the college was granted, in
September, 1913. i n d e p e n d e nt
standing by the Board of Regents.
And this same faculty, developed by
Professor Lorch, is the secondary
factor in the formation of the re-
markable art school at Michigan
This faculty, among the best to
be found in this country or abroad,
has numbered among its members
such famous architects as Eliel
Saarien, Ernest Wilby. and the late
Albert Rousseau, and, of course,
Emil Lorch.
Professor Lorch's art education
came from numerous institutions in
this country and abroad. First at-
tending Massachusetts Institute c:
Technology for two years, he next
went to Paris for a year, and then'
returned to enter the graduate
school at Harvard. He received his
A.M. degree there in 1903.
Before this time he had been
general assistant to the Director of
the Chicago Art Institute for three
years and also secretary of the Chi-
cago School of Architecture, affil-

To The Editor:
The article signed: "An Engineer" might more
correctly been signed "An Agitator."
The information relative to class expenditures for
the class of 1931, which gave the class of 1932 a basis
for its budget, has been posted for the past three
months on the Engineering Council Bulletin board.
All asking information regarding class expenditures
were referred to this.
Senior Engineering dues, contrary to the state-
ment- of "An Engineer" are two dollars as compared
to one dollar charged each previous year. It was
realized that charging for the senior year alone
would be unfair to those who had paid dues for
previous years and would also set a higher rate per
person for the senior year in order to cover all the
All bills are paid through Assistant Dean Rea who,
as well as the class treasurer, has a complete record
of all payments made. Both the assistant dean and
the treasurer will allow anyone interested to inspect
the accounts of the class.
It is unfortunate that "An Engineer" wishes to
construe our actions in the light that he does. Appar-
ently, not the lack of available information, but;
ignorance accounts for "The Engineer And Where
His Dues Go."

More than a little importance is attached to

As for mourning becoming Electra
we would say that she would feel
much more comfortable behind a
keyhole, or going native on a South
Sea Island, especially the latter. We
vote Mr. O'Neill the most eminent
dramatist of the modern illegiti-.
mate stage. But the play. ah yes,
the play!
Lavinia Maanon, the heavy role,
was carried by Judith Anderson;
more correctly it was dragged. The
first two plays of the trilogy were
taken, so far as we can see, from
the Greek while the last episode
seems to be Uncle Gene's own. For
the gratification of those who have
a kind spot for our demagogue we
might say that this last is the best
of the three. Even so, the Anderson
woman had to struggle through
several scenes with her brother
during which time O'Neill tried to
establish his point that incest was
the motive. Our vote of apprecia-
tion goes to Florence Reed who lit-
erally stole the show from Judith.
O'Neill seems to take great de-
light in the promiscuous manner in
which certain individuals find their
way into this world, and does not
hesitate to apply the proper name
to such people and their unfortun-
ate parent. But that is the license
of modern play writing.
In conclusion we might say that1
O'Neill is the patron saint of the
melodrama. Ten years ago this
play would be hooted, today it is
called art. Since it is an undoubted
success we are looking forward to
seeing our favorite bed-time story
(The Ginger-Bread Man) in melo-
drama with perhaps an illegitimate

For three years, Professor Lorch
was assistant professor of architec-
ture at Drexel Institute at Philadel-
phia, leaving there in 1906 to be-
come professor and head of the
College of Architecture at Mich-
Since that time, though his main
interest has been the development
of that department of the Univer-
sity, he has done extensive work for
various other institutions.
He was a member of the Detroit-
Belle Isle Bridge Commission and,
with Prof. Louis Gram of the Uni-
versity, made the basic design for
that famous structure. Since then
the executive and administrative
duties of his position have taken too
much of his time to allow for many
outside projects.
He has, however, designed local
structures of note, among them be-
ing the Detroit Edison office build-
ings in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti,
the Detroit Edison power plant at
Barton Dam (with the late Gard-
ner S. Williams), a club house and
dormitory goup at Waldon Woods
(near Hartland, Michigan), and a
library and hall at Hartland.
Professor Lorch became a mem-
ber of the Michigan State Board of
Examiners for architects, engineers,
and surveyors, in 1919, and is now
president of that body. He is a
member and past-president of the
Association of Collegiate Schools of
Architecture, and also a member of
the American Institute of Archi-
tecture, and the Michigan Society

(Daily Princetonian)
Dr. Alexander Meikeljohn, former President ofs
rherst College and now head of the Wisconsin,
:perimental School, has in a recent report recom-,
mded a plan for the remodeling of the liberal arts
llege. Dr. Meikeljohn is of the opinion that real
ucational progress toward the ideal of the "grow-
g, plastic mind" is retarded by the present organ- '
ition of the American liberal arts college into a
igle large body of students. He advocates, there-
re, the division of the college into a number of,
Taller units.' As in the Wisconsin Experimental
illege, the students in each unit will apply them-
Ives to the study of one particular civilization,
nsidering it from all aspects, both artistic andy
ientific,-separate "courses" will be discarded; eachf
lit, moreover, will have its own autonomous faculty.
Dr. Meikeljohn's radical experiment during the
st five years with the new type of curriculum in the
isconsin Experimental College has been the subject
so much comment favorable and unfavorable,
nong leading American educators, that there is
tle new which the Princetonian can offer. Cer-
inly, intelligent experimentation is always desir-
ile even if it demonstrates only the limitations of

ly to the patient's room without asking the nurse in
charge if it is convenient, and giving the patient an
opportunity to refuse to see him. The nurse may
limit the length of time of the call. Even a short
visit in a cheerful mood is tiring to a sick person,
and if the conversation takes a mournful or grew-
somely reminiscent turn, and the visitor fails to leave
at the appointed time, it may be disastrous. If there
are other patients in the room, the thoughtful visitor
wil do or say nothing to disturb or embarrass them.
Among many things that are not permissable are:
sitting or leaning on the bed, breaking contagious
precautions, and "necking."
When a patient complains of his treatment in a
hospital it is a question as to how far he is himself
responsible. Nurses and doctors are seldom remiss
in their ministrations to any patient. If the patient
remembers that he is not the only one requiring
attention, if he is as agreeable as his condition per-
mits him to be, if he requests-not demands, and at
least occasionally thanks those who serve him, he is
likely to be satisfied with his care. He will improve
more rapidly if he is co-operative in taking his medi-
cine, in submitting to treatment, and in eating what
is brought him. He will be more comfortable if he
has brought his own toilet articles, night wear, bath-
robe, slippers; writing material, and reading matter.
and does his share in keeping these belongings anc
surroundings reasonably neat.
The patient has a right to expect that doctors anc
nurses will be courteous, gentle, quiet, interested, ant
