linimizes Present Trend
To Apartment Building;
Describes Future House

A great impetus in single house'
building within the next few years is
predicted by Professor Wells Ben-
nett, associate professor of architec-
ture in the architectural college.
"Although there is a tendency to-
wards the favoring of apartments at
the present time, nevertheless a ma-
jority of the nation's total popula-
tion lives in single houses," Profes-
sor Bennett said. "The single house
amounts almost to a tradition in
America - much more so than on,
the continent. In Europe the favored
plan is to rent or lease. In the United
States the goal of the people is to own
their own home,
"Along with the increased activity
in home-building in the near fu-
ture, I expect to see developed and
perfected a practical factory-manu-
factured house, a house which may be
assembled on the spot in one day.
Houses will then be put out on the
same basis as are automobiles at the
present time. The day will come when
a man may rent a piece of property,
erect his house for a length of time,
and then take his house with him
when he decides to move.
"Of course there will have to come
about many new methods of construc-
tion. With the invention of new me-
chanical devices such as the electric
refrigerator, the oil-burning furnace,
air-cooling units and others, people
have been anxious to install these im-
provements, but have neglected to
modify the house accordingly. Men
still build colonial houses and then
try to modernize them by adding these
scientific labor-savers."
The new factory-built house will
have to switch from this system, ac-
cording to Professor Bennett.hThe
plumbing, heating, cooling, lighting,
refrigeration, will have to be incor-
porated as a part of the house itself.
They will have to be so designed and
fitted to the general plan of the
house as not to interfere with easy
transporting of the dissembled home
or rapid piece-by-piece assemblage,
hie said.
"Up to the present, all work on fac-
tory-built homes has proceeded on too
narrow a basis. Experiments have been
too much influenced by other inter-
ests, whether they be wood, steel, brick
or fabrication, to be very successful.
Several companies are now, however,
working on schemes of a flexible
structure which would not only-give
variety to the patterns, but would per-
mit the adoption of the structure to
the local conditions.
"Such homes would, of course, ap-
peal only to the man of small in-
come, to whom they would be a great
blessing. However, with subsequent
improvement and refinement, the
factory-built house may eventually be
made to appeal even to the wealthier

after a running gun battle with four men believed to have been members
of the elusive Dillinger band of desperadoes. Left to right: Lieut. Joseph

is bandaged where he was clipped by a machine gun wielded by a
man believed to have been Homer Van Meter, associate of John Dil-

filling station, only to run into a battery of machine guns.

most exactly one-half, are educators.
That is, they are either college pro-
fessors, deans, or other administra-
tive officers of American universities
from coast to coast.
Michigamna for Business
On the other hand, business is the
particular forte of the Michigamua
graduates, for 73 of their 188 success-
ful graduates tabulated are company
executives, managers, superinten-
dents, or hold other high positions in
commerce and industry. The next
largest group is made up of attorneys,
there being 25 of them among the
former campus activity men. The list
also includes 15 bankers, 11 public
officials, 8 writers, 7 educators, 7
physicians, 5 engineers, and 2 scien-
The second largest group other than
educators in the Phi Beta Kappa list
is made up of attorneys, as isthe case
with the activity graduates. There
are 14 bar members among the scho-
lastic honor men, 12 more in general
business occupations, 10 writers and
publishers, 3 physicians, 3 scientists,
3 public officials, 1 banker, and 1
member of the clergy.
Two Are Farmers
On each list there is one graduate
whose present occupation is farming.
Alumni of both groups who are on
campus at present insisted when the
survey was first planned that, re-
gardless of the result of the percent-
age tabulation, they have the most fa-
mous individual members in their or-
ganizations. No means of measuring

this were discovered, however, so it
had to remain a point for each side.
Incidental to checking the names, it
was found that Frank G. Murphy, '12,
governor-general of the Philippine
Islands, a' member of Michigamua,
has combined the advantages of both
groups by taking one member of each
along in his "official family." Ed-
ward G. Kemp, '12, legal adviser to
Governor General Murphy, is an
alumnus of both Phi Beta Kappa and
Michigamua, and Normal H. Hill, '10,
also a Michigamua alumnus, is an-
other official in the government.
As conclusions, the following might
be assumed from the evidence gath-
Michigamua Has Adds
If you are a follower of extra-cur-
ricular activities and reach Michi-
gamua the chances are that you will
achieve distinction in your field with-
in 20 years after you graduate - at
least 85 out of every 100 of you will.
On the other hand if you're enough
of a student to become a member
of Phi Beta Kappa your chance is 80
out of 100.
Also, if you're in the former group
the chances are that you'll become
either a business man or an attorney,
while if you follow the latter prece-
dent you're almost predestined to be-
come either an educator or, again, an
So, take your choice. Be only a
student, but a good one, here and
either an educator or a lawyer later-
be in activities here and business or
the legal profession later.
