New Graduate Studies School
To Be More Than Just Modern

- -- -- - --


A two-day Institute on Industrial
Hygiene and Medicine, conducted by
J. J. Bloomfield, industrial engineer,
United States Public Health Service,
opened yesterday in Room 1528, East
Medical Building.
At the first meeting, Mr. Bloom-
field, spoke on "Historical Develop-
ment of Industrial Hygiene." "The
main function of public health work,"
he said, "is the control of occupa-
tional diseases." "We can safely
say," he continued, "that the 'worker
Today is employed under better work-
ing conditions than his father."
He pointed out that this is mainly
due to recent labor legislation and
the fact that the states are beginning
to realize that it is their duty to pro-
tect the workers.
"Since the passage of the Social
Securities Act," Mr. Bloomfield stat-
ed, "it has been possible for the Unit-
ed States Public Health Service to
map out a program in cooperation
with the states, designed to control
the public health problem." Declar-
ing that an educational campaign was
essential to the success of the pro-
gram, he urged that courses in in-
dustrial hygiene be established here.
The afternoon session was ad-
dressed by C. W. Klassen, chief en-
gineer, Illinois State Department of
Health, on the benefits of a public
health program.
He stressed the need for a definite
state disaster aid program and stated
that this program should be based on
"anticipation and prevention."
The seminar will conclude today
with a meeting at 9 a.m. in the West
Medical Building and another at 1
p.m. also in the West Medical Build-

There will be no classrooms and no
laboratories, according to Mr. Mar-
tin. He explained that there will!
be a large lecture hall and a small
lecture hall, one on the first floor and
one on the second. Each of these au-
ditoriums will be equipped for all
kinds of projection work, including
motion pictures, lantern slides and
microscopic projection.
Because of the great size of the
large auditorium, Mr. Martin stated,
10 microphones will be placed at vari-

This is the first year that the Tag
Day has been extended to the down-
town and campus business areas of
Ann Arbor, Luszki stated, the work
having been previously carried on
near the campus. Fraternities, sor
orities, church guilds and other cam-
pus organizations have already in-
dicated support of the drive, he said.
The Fresh Air Camp, at Patterson
Lake for underprivileged boys of Ann
Arbor and Detroit, has been sponsored
on the campus by the Student Chris-
tian Association and by a directory
committee upon which -serve several
faculty members. Its staff will in-
clude 35 men from the University, and
for these reasons, Luszki said, strong
campus support of the Tag Day is#
usually experienced. -(
Because the camp is operated for
100 less-privileged boys from Ann
Arbor for four weeks, and its work ex-
tends to the community, the appeal to
the town citizens and business men
is also being made, he said. -
Friday, May 14, has been set aside
for the Tag Day drive.
