James Brown Scott Will Address
Seniors at Commencement

mencement exercises this June the

The first -class to graduate from
the University, in 1854, after the
institution had been established in
Ann Arbor in its present form,
numbered 11 members--no more
than the number of separate de-
partments cf instruction in the
University now.
In addition to their diplomas, 400
graduates will receive certificates
of special proficiency in teaching

WASHINGTON, June 1.-(/P)--In-
voking tlie age-old axiom that the
power to- tax is the power to de-
stroy, the senate wrote into the
revenue bill Tuesday night a 100
per cent tax upon all incomes ob-
tained by crime.
If this outright confiscation of
the literal wages of sin remains in
the bill, the gangster, bootlegger,
narcotic distributor and gambling
syndicate will be at the utter mercy
of the federal government.
Senator Glenn, of Illinois, the
state that has suffered so conspicu-
ously from gangland, put the harsh
provision into the bill without
meeting objection. He called upon
the government to end the "part-
nership" with crime which he
charged it exercises in accepting
the same share of vice-tainted
profits that it demands of the man
who earns his money within the
Hitherto law violators with con-
spicuous earnings have been able to
protect themselves by boldly de-
claring their occupation and their
income to the internal revenue bu-
reau and paying tax, without fear
that the returns could be used to
prosecute them.
Where they failed to do so, the
government has succeeded in using
the income tax law to imprison
gang leaders and smash their pow-
er in cases where the terror of
gangland guns and torture made
impossible the gathering of evi-
dence to convict them of the dfimes
which yielded the income.
Stage Fright Called
Production Necessity
(Special to the Daily)
DES MOINES, Ia., May 31.-- No
musical comedy, no performance of
the plays of Shakespeare, no pro-
duction of the Drama league or
presentaton of George White's
"Scandals" can be successfully put
on without a due amount of stage
fright, judging from thq replies
found in a questionnaire sent out
recently by the Drake university
psychology department.
"Stage fright" is actually an aid
to actors and lecturers, the survey
showed, but the same nervousness
is harmful in a concert singer, be-
cause the tenseness interferes with
Conrad Nagel, the motion picture
actor, wrote, "Stage fright is ab-
solutely essential to the good per-
formance of an actor. Without it
an artist's playing is lifeless and

tion has been busier than ever be-I
fore, and it has not been as a
result of an unusual gmount of
sickness, but because the students
are beginning to recognize the im-
portance of preventative measures."
There has been an increase of 12,
per cent in dispensary calls over
last year, which Dr. Forsythe at-
tributes to the increased demand
for examinations and check-ups
and to the Health Service's efforts:
in following up' the students more,
than in former years.
This year is the first year that
all four classes have had special
doctors, who have established a.
personal contact which was former-
ly lacking.
Another innovation which has
been installed this year is the com-
pulsory lung X-ray for medical;
students. From this test, only 'one
active case of tuberculosis was
found in the 500 investigated, while
in a similar test made at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania medical
school, 6 per cent to 21 per cent
were found to be afflicted. Foreign
students have been similarly ex-
Research shows that colds are
responsible for approximately 25£
per cent of all the service rendered.
A study made this year shows that
about one-half of all students come
to the Health Service for one oi
more colds during the year. More
men than women have been treated
for colds, Dr. Forsythe said.
Statistics compiled up to May 1

tions. In spite ^f the huge increase'
in service, the deaths for this year
are the same in number as last
The Health Service was organized
in 1913, with four people on the
staff, and a budget of $12,000. Today
it has a staff of 40 people and a,
budget of $130,000. Students are
now entitled to practically no limit
of clinical service at no charge at
all except on special occasions, and
then materials are given at whole-
sale cost.
The same building has housed
the Health Service since 1921, and
with the huge increase in service
rendered is giving service, accord-I
ring to r. Forsythe, in unduly
cramped quarters. There are 24
beds in the building which are
always in use. The attic has been
utilized for filing purposes and as
living quarters for the night at-
tendants. The basement has been
used and many of the doctors are
doubling up on offices, Dr. Forsythe'
declared. \

(Special to The Daily)
MADISON, Wis., May 31.-Speak-
ing before a gathering of mothers
of University of -Wisconsin students,
President Glenn Frank today de-
fended the university and retalliat-
ed against the attacks of John B.
Chapple and his political follow-
"I shall rip the mask of op-
portunism from any person or
group that undertakes, for person-
al or party reasons", to undermine
the central values of this univer-
sity into which the people of Wis-
consin have builded their dreams'
and their devotion over the years,"
said President Frank in direct ref-
erence to Chapple. .'
The president went on to explain
that the university is a guiding in-
fluence to the students and that the
attacks were practically baseless..
"It is a difficult thing," he said,
"to keep a stat university fr9m
becoming a political football. To
me it is a baffling thing, for it is
so shortsighted upon the part of
the attackers, but every so often in
the life of a state university there
will be politicians in office who,
listening unduly to a few loud but
unrepresentative voices and taking
the advice of their least dependent
advisers, think they can capture
votes by slugging hard at the uni-
versity, especially' votes from the
armers, although the alumni lists
of~ state universities reveal that
many of their most distinguished
are sons and daughters of farmers
who might never have been able to
give university trai ing to their
children but for the existence of
these universites of the people." The I
speech was frequently interrupted
by applause.
Child Convalescing.
Five year old Anastasia Savis who
was seriously injured when struck
bya a truck Tuesday was reported,
yesterday, as "coming along, fine,"
by officials at St. Joseph Mercy hos-
pital. She suffered head injuries,
a fracture of the right leg and a
fractured pelvis.

CHICAGO, June 1.-A practical
course in advertising procedure and
practice will be presented during
the four weeks beginning July 11
at the Chicago Academy of Fine
Arts, by Hugh J. Newman, manag-
ing director. Newman has been

for two successive seasons at Hun-
ter college, New York city.
The primary objective in present-
ing this course is to remove it en-
tirely from theoretical training and

of aspects of the advertisingi pro-
f'ession as appropriations, human
contact in advertising, layout, typo-
graphy, photo-engraving, electro-
typing, printing, various advertis-
ing media, art in advertising, phys-
ical and psychological aspects of
advertising copy, advertising de-
partnaents of publications, and or-
