Far East

[s Held In Summer
The Institute of Far Eastern Studies
will be held at the University this
ummer for the third consecutive
'ear,, Prof. Robert B. Hall of the
eggraphy department, director, an-
Lounced yesterday.
The Institute is a continuation of
he endeavor begun at Harvard in
he summer of 1934 and continued at
,alifornia and Columbia in 1935
nd 1936 respectively, he said. It met
t the University of Michigan in 1937
nd has continued to meet here ever
The Institute, according to its
atalogue, is a recognition of the in-
errelated destinies of the United
ntates and the Far East and the
rowing public and academic interest
n the Far East. Our institutions, his-
ory and customs, it holds, have been
ntwined with those of Europe; we
.ave trained scholars in the languages
nd history of Europe.
Trains Lingual Scholars
One of the primary purposes of
nstitute, the catalogue maintains, is
o train scholars in the languages
nd cultures of the Far East. The
astitute, moreover, by means of its
ourses and seminars attempts to
ive students a detached understand-
4g of the particular civilizations of
he Far East.
Tlie catalogue also stresses the
ffort of the Institute to afford aca-
emic training to interested students
n such particuh r disciplines as his-
ry, economics and geography, espec-
ally as they pertain to the Far East
,nd its developments.
n chigan, the catalogue states, is
niquely suited to entertain the In-
itute. The University and its facul-
, it asserts, have for a long time
tad intimate and friendly relations
ith the peoples and governments of
he Far East, especially since the
ime that the late President Angell
ras appointed Envoy Extraordinary
o the Chinese Empire. More recently,
rniversity educators and engineers
ave rendered important services to
he Far Eastern governments, it says.
East Studied Here
As a result, the catalogue declares,
here has grown at the University a
ubstantial group of scholars whose
najor interest is in Far Eastern
tudies. The large enrollment here
f students born in the Far East,
arger than that of any other Ameri-
an university, reflects that interest
nd is an indication, the publication
ays, of the friendly and intimate
elations between the University and
he Far East.
' The Institute continues for eight
reeks and is a part of the regular
ummer session of the University,
ae catalogue explains. All students
nrolled in the Institute are classi-
ed according to the previous train-
ng they have had in Far Eastern
udies. Classes are divided into levels
f study; there is a progression of
ourses from courses for beginners
o those for advanced students.
Three language schools are con-
ucted at the Institute: the teaching
f Chinese is under the direction of
rof. George Kennedy of Yale; Jap-
nese is conducted by Mr. Yamag-
va of the University; Russian by
[me. Lila Pargment.

Former Dean
Urges Group
Medical Plan
(Editor's Note: This is the first in a
series of three articles in which Dr.
Hugh Cabot, former dean of the School
of Medicine, discusses the problem of
group medicine, one of the para
mount issues before the State Medical
Association today.)
Group iedicine is inevitable and
should be adopted without delay, Dr.
Hugh Cabot, dean of the School of
Medicine from 1921 to 1930, empha-
sizes in a recent article published in
a medical magazine.
Group medicine is not a recent de-
velopment, according to Dr. Cabot.
It merely means a "gathering, more
or less, under one roof, of physicians
expert in the various subdivisions of
medical practice so that they have
easy access to their colleagues." The
great charity hospitals incorporate
this idea for they were founded with
the purpose of availing a variety of
specialists with adequate opportuni-
ties for consultation. In such in-
stances, group practice was regarded
as desirable.
Group practice has developed a
different meaning in recent years, Dr.
Cabot pointed out. Now it is thought
of as "the organization, as private
ventures, of groups of physicians not
associated with any particular hos-
pital and not particularly engaged in
chariable practices." The Mayo clin-
ic, created by Dr. Will and Dr. Charles
Mayo, stands as one of the first ex-
amples of group practice.
This ambitious undertaking de-
troyed the "cherished" belief of medi-
cal men of the so-called "necessity"
for greater intimacy between the doc-
tors and the ill, Doctor Cabot con-
tinued. Patients illustrated by their
response to the Mayo Clinic that they
were willing to utilize the Clinic in
much the same manner as they were
willing to use the individual practi-

surance companies. It was at this
point, Professor Jamison said, that
the committee gave evidence of be-
ing a little skeptical of business mo-
tives. In a statement issued following
the hearings on insurance, he said,
Senator O'Mahoney declared that in
the past seven years, insurance in
force had increased less than one
billion dollars, whereas the legal re-
serve of life insurance companies.
have increased by seven and one half
Except for two brief periods in
1918 and 1932-1934 out of 49 years,
O'Mahoney went on, the premium in-
come of life insurance companies has
been more than sufficient to meet
all expenses and payments to policy-
holders and beneficiaries. The in-
come from investments, the Senator
concluded, have not been needed at
The obvious implication of this
statement, Professor Jamison said, is
that the insurance companies are
making an inordinately large profit,
but the fact of the matter is that
since insurance in force is a liability
of the company and premium income
is an asset accumulated over a period
of year to meet the liabilities, there

is no direct relationship between new
contracts written and premiums col-
lected yearly in contracts in force..,
At present, Profesosr Jamison said,
life insurance companies have con-
tracts in force totalling approxi-
mately 110 billion dollars, meaning
someday they may have to pay claims
of 110 billion dollars.
At the rate of accumulation indi-
cated by Senator O'Mahoney, he
said, it would take 110 years for the
insurance companies to do so. To
date they have about 25 billions,
meaning that they will have to col-
lect one billion dollars a year forthe
next 85 years, even though now new
contracts were written. Clearly then,
Professor Jamison said, the collection
of premiums at the rate of seven
billions in seven years is not un-

Health Instruction
Asked For Schools
Jerome Davis, president of the
American Federation of Teachers,
issued a plea for more health in-
struction in public schools in the
January issue of the American
Teacher. He based his plea on a
national health survey which report-
ed the health status of three-quarters
of a million families in 84 cities.,
This report, completed in 1936,
reveals approximately one-third of
the children under 15 years of age
have little or no medical care. Two-
thirds of the rural areas have no
child-health clinics.

old Pittsburgh dancer, appeared

Father Lobo arrived in the country
