Henry Ford (left) is shown as he stood on the stage in the Olympia
arena, Detroit, with President Hoover Saturday night, when the Repub-
lican nominee made the principal address of his third campaign trip
to the midwest. In the center is Mrs. Wilbur M. Brucker, wife of Gov-
ernor Brucker.

The figures for each profession are
reached by examining the records of
men who enter a profession and re-
main in it until they retire or die,
rather than by examining the in-
comes of men who stay in a profes-
sion for only a few years and then
transfer to some other means of liv-
Not only do the annual average
earnings of the doctors exceed all
others - except that of the lawyers
-but Dr. Clark believes the young
medical graduate of today may earn
considerably more income 30 years
from now than the present medical
man with 30 years practice.
Colleges on Decrease
There has been a consistent de-
crease in the number of medical col-
leges accompanied by an ever-grow-
ing demand for medical treatment
due to greater public health activities
and greater general knowledge of
health measures.
Forty Students Initiated
Into Cosmopolitan Club
Opening the year's activities, 40
students of American and foreign
nationality were formally initiated
into the Cosmopolitan Club Saturday
night at Lane Hall before 100 mem-
John Khalaf, chairman of the or-
ganization, presided over the cere-
mony. Prof. Charles E. Koella of the
Romance Languages department wel-
comed the new members and ex-
plained the meaning of the Cosmo-
politan Club and its aims.
Due to the absence of Mrs. Freder-
ick B. Fisher, Mrs. Helen Halsteda,
whose husband is Dean of Lucknow
College, India, delivered the main ad-
dress of the evening, speaking on
"The Responsibilities of the Return-
ing Student and His Attitude Toward
the Mother Country."


Dr. Clark pointed but that another
field in which certain indications of
change are apparent is that of public-
school teaching. The salary schedules
were devised for a system in which
only a small percentage of workers
reaching the maximum rates, due to
a high turnover. With the increasing
tendancy for workers to remain for
life in the field, the percentage of
workers reaching the maximum rates
is consistently growing and will quite
likely prove a tax burden.
In regard to journalism, Dr. Clark
found that the majority of persons
who were graduated from schools of
journalism did not remain in that,
particular field, but branched off into
advertising and publishing.

Sets New Glider Record
With Motorless Loops
AKRON, 0., Oct. 24.-(/P)-E. B.
Sutherland, of Akron, went "up and
over" in his motorless plane 35 times
at a glider meet Sunday to establish
himself as a claimant of a record for
glider loops.
Pilots from glider clubs throughout
the midwest, including organizations
from Pittsburgh and Ann Arbor,
Mich., watched Sutherland's feat.


Planning a program which will in-
clude features of interest to the gen-
eral student body as well as to its
own members is one of the aims this
year of the Russian Student Club,
according to Paul D. Kalachov, Grad.,
"There are more than 20 Russian-
born students attending the Univer-
sity this year," Kalachov said. "Last
year an organization known as the,
Russian Student Club of the Univer-
sity of Michigan was created through
the efforts of a few energetic Rus-
sian students."
Probably the most worthwhile and
one of the most interesting features
of the Russian Student Club is the
fact that it is organized on the prin-
ciple of nationality and language
rather than on political beliefs, Kal-
achov said. The difficulty of uniting
royalist sympathizers of the present
regime Was formerly considered in-
superable,\but placing the club's or-
ganization on the basis of nativity
removed this obstacle. Because of
this fact, the club has been able to
unite under its leadership the major-
ity of Russian students on campus,
Kalachov stated.
"The club has stimulated a friend-
ly understanding of its members'
quite colorful pasts and in general
a better acquaintance has been pro-
moted among the Russians," the
president declared.

Another student visited a number
of Russian training schools, prisons,
and prison camps last summer.
"This project should prove of great
interest to the students," Tibbitts de-
clared, "and brnig to light informa-
tion which will possibly aid in further
study and correction of delinquents."
Campus Kissing Scored
As Unhealthy But Certain
SEATTLE, Oct. 24.-Kissing is be-
lieved to be an inevitable part of stu-
dent life by Dr. D. C. Hall of the
University of Washington health
service. Although it is unhygeinic and
a very possible means of, transmit-
ting serious diseases, Dr. Hall thinks
it is futile to try to do anything
about it.
"The habit is above the power of
man-made rules to modify," he de-
clared. He is, however, strongly
against kissing between patients and
visitors in the University hospital and
strives to prevent it there.
For the first time since its com-
pletion, toll is being collected from
vehicles crossing the Mississippi at
St. Louis. Receipts are used for un-
employment relief.
The oldest road in Ohio is in Sum-
mit county where its use is traced
back to Indian days.
