the formal dedication of the new
W. K. Kellogg Foundation Institute
for Graduate and Postgraduate Den-
tistry and the annual homecoming
ceremonies of the School of Den-
With President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven presiding over the almost capa-
city audience, the alumni heard him
extol the new Institute as a gift
"first to the citizens of Michigan
and second, to all humanity."
They watched President Ruthven
confer an honorary degree of Mas-
ter of Science on Dr. Oliver W. White
of Detroit who gave the response to
the Institute on behalf of the alumni.
Dr. White already had repeived two
degrees from the University, a DDS
and a DDSc. He had been president
of the American Society of Ortho-
dontics and of the Great Lakes Or-.
ori s Presents Building
Dr Emory K. Morris, treasurer
and associate director of the W. K.
Kellogg Foundation, presented the
building to President Ruthven, who
accepted it as par of the educational
facilities of the University on behalf
of the Regents.
Outlining the Foundation's inter-
est in dentistry and the reasons for
the construction of the new Insti-
tute, r. Morris explained that the
Institte represents one more step
in securing better health for the peo-
ple of ichigan. This;the Fona-
tion's pride, e said, to contribute
an Institute which "will'further the
cause of dental "
In accepting the.Institute, Pres-
ident Ruthven remarked that "In-
stitues of higher education are ser-
vibe agencies to increase and spread
human knowledge." It is the duty
of these institutions, he said, not
only to prepare youth for adult life,
but also to aid in adult education.
it is only when the institution ful-
fills both these duties, he concluded,
that it is truly a University."
Dr. Russell W. Bunting, dean of
the dental school, in responding to
the gift on behalf of the faculty of
the School of Dentistry, declared that
the Institute was a "dream of the
faculty of the dental school realized,
that this day is a memorable day
in the history of the dental school
and dentistry at large."
Gratitude Expressed
He said: "The faculty of the den-
tal school is grateful to the Kellogg
Foundation and to the United States
Government for its munificent gift;
we are proud that the University of
Michigan was chosen as the recipi-
ent; we are impressed and made
humble by their responsibilities and
obligations laid upon us by the gift;
but we accept all these responsibili-
ties and obligations that go with the
gift and will do all we can o ad-
vance dental education."
Speaking for the Department of
Postgraduate Dentistry, Dr. Paul H.
Jeserich, director of the Institute
and chairman of the department,
reemphasized that Michigan has
been a pioneer in dental education
and stresses the point that this pio-
neering is shared by the dental pro-
fession as well as the University.
Expressing his "extrme feeling of
gratitude," Dr. Jeserich concluded
with the hope that "the new Insti-
tute will inspire the profession to
continue, to pioneer."
Dean Clarence S. Yoakum of the
graduate school and vice-president
of the University spoke for the grad-
uate school when he maintained that
the Kellogg Foundation was worthy
of the highest praise because of its
efforts in discovering new techniques
of thinking and doing. The creation
of the Institute, he concluded, has
further advanced instruction and re-

Clinics, demonstrations and lec-
tures featured the final sessions of
the three-day Detroit-Ann Arbor
sectional meeting of the American
College of Surgeons which was held
yesterday in University Hospital and
was attended by medical men from
all parts of the Middle West.
At a luncheon held at noon in the
main ballroom of the League, Dean
Albert A. Furstenberg of the med-
ical school spoke on "The Trends in
Undergraduate Medical Education."
He stressed the importance of a
broad, general education and a high
degree of mental maturity for the
student who contemplates the study
of medicine. He recommended add-
ing courses such as social medicine
and clinical pharmacology to the
medical curriculum, in line with re-
cent changes in our social structure.
Dr: George P. Muller and Dr. Mal-
colm T. MacEachern, /officers of the
society, also spoke.,
Dr. Carl H. -Camp, professor of
Neurology, speaking at the general
afternoon conference in the main
amphitheatre of the Rackham Build-
ing,. discussed "Surgery and the Psy-
choneurotic Patient." He pointed out
that psychone'uroses are conditions
in which all symptoms are phenom-
ena of mental conflict. Obviously
surgical operations could not be ex-
pected to cure such cases, he said.

WASHINGTON, April 3.-'P)-The
collapsing Congressional economy
drive revived somewhat today when
the House Appropritions Commit-
tee slashed the Army's supply bill
for the next fiscal yer to $785,999,-
094-$67,357,660 less than President
Roosevelt recommended.
Without a dissenting vote, the
Committee, source of most of this
session's economy moves, sent the
measure to the Houe floor imme-
diately for debate, nd legislators
predicted it wouldg to the Senate
tomorrow without an major change.
However, economy advocates lost
a round on the Sen*te side of the
Capital. An appropriations subcom-
mitteeaapproved, 5 to'4, a $25,000,090
increase in the War' Department's
Civil Functions Bill. The added mon-
ey was earmarked for rivers and har-
bors projects.
Third Term Trend,
Dewey Seen Stronger
WASHINGTON, April 3. -/P)-
Tuesday's elections left an impres-
sion in many quarters that the draft-
Roosevelt movement had been stren-
gthened within the Democratic Par-
ty-but there 'were also predictions
of Democratic troubles in November.
At the same time none disputed
that the Presidential prospects of
Thomas E. Dewey had been increased
by his 2 to 1 victory over Senator
Vandenberg of Michigan in the Wis-
consin presidential primary. Politi-
cians found the picture of an Eastern
city man proving a big vote getter
in the Western farmlands highly
m' eSnVe.
But, on the Democratic side, the
adherents of President - Roosevelt
dealt a blow to the anti-third term
campaign of Vice-President Garner
with a 3 to 1 victory in Wisconsin
and margins running as high as
5 to 1 in New York City.

Shortage Of Dat

Churchill Is Given Full
War Powers In Drastic

Dating habits of Michigan's men
and women are revealed in figures-
released yesterday by the Bureau of
Student Opinion at Lane Hall. Based
on polls taken in December and May
of last year, the statistics show that
in sample groups of over five hun-
dred students each, 55 per cent of
the men would like to date oftener
than they do, and 44 per cent of the
women would also like more dates.
Asked if the results of the polls
agreed with her observations as so-
cial director of the League, Miss Ethel
McCormick said, "As far 'as I know,
this poll is quite accurate. I still
think there should be some place for
students to meet."
She pointed out as an example of
the anxiety of boys and girls to
make social contacts, the fact that
many of the boys who attend danc-
ing classes held at the League do so,
not so much for instruction as for
the opportunities to meet members
of the opposite sex there. ""There
are a great many boys and girls who
would like to date," Miss McCormick
added, "But so far, though here in
the League we have been trying to
correct the situation, a real solution
has not been found."
Comparative figures compiled by
the Bureau under the direction of
James M. Vicary, '40, show that stu-
dents reporting a 'B' or better aver-
age in their studies date eight per
cent more than the students report-

Europe Preparing Itself
For Lengthy Struggle,
News Analyst Reports
Europe's many peoples-diversified
in race, language and thought-to-
day are on the verge of a long war
that may continue to rage for as
long as five years, S. L. A. Marshall,
foreign news analyst and editorial
writer of the Detroit News, declared
here yesterday in an address spon-
sored by the University journalism
Mr. Marshall predicted that the
present "peaceful war" will soon
come to an end, and that it will be
replaced by a real conflict of blood
and power.
Europe's peoples are ready for this
war, he declared, and reports that
they do not want to fight are not
based on any real knowledge of the
factors involved.
The next war-costing billions of
dollars-wig be more devastating
than is generally realized, he added.
Mr. Marshall served overseas dur-
ing the World War, and has special-
ized in analyzing military affairs
both as a newspaperman and as a
radio broadcaster for many years.

ing, a scholastic average of 'C' or
below. Those holding positions in
student organizations dated 15 per
dent more than the all-campus group.
As a group, fraternity and sorority
members dated more than any other
group on campus, while freshmen
dated the least.
The question asked was "During
the past seven days, how many dates,
other than chance meetings have
you had?" In their answers, 42 per
cent of the men said that they had
no J dates at all during that time,
while only 26 per cent of the women
said the same. The question also
provided for learning how many
times a week those who dated did
so, and it was found that 31 per cent
of the men had one date a week,
while 20 per cent of the women had
the same number. But 27 percent of
the men answered that they had two
or more dates a week, while 54 per-
cent of the women had that number.

LONDON, April 3.- )--Winston
Churchill, fighting' heir to Great
Britain's lofty traditions, became her
"Man of Battle" tonight in a drastic
shake-up of the cabinet which made
him director of all the nation's
warring services.

but volatile figure of the First Lord

emerging from Prime Minister Ne-
ville Chamberlain's third government
shift of the war are two other key
men-Sir Kingsley Wood and Sir
John Simon.
Reporting with Churchill to Cham-
berlain as heads of war committees,
they form a war cabinet in fact if
not in name.'
Sir Kingsley, who traded his Air
Ministry with Sir Samuel Hoare for
the latter's post as Lord Privy Seal,
will head the home poliy committee.
He will direct, discuss and advise
on social and domestic problems of
wartime, inchiding food and ari-
culture-vital to this importing,
heavy-eating nation of 45,000,000
To Sir John Simon, silvery-haired
and silent 'veteran of finance, re-
mains the staggering task of pre-
siding over the cabinet's economic
policy committee. As Chancellor of
the Exchequer he directs Great Bri-
tain's mighty offensive of pounds,
shillings and pence.
With the nation quickening to the
increased tempo of aerial warfare
and with Germany's Goering de-
claring the Reich will strike on the
west, Chamberlain bowed to public
clamor to "fight the war" by making
the 65-year-old Churcill head of
the vital Service Committee. He re-
mains First Lord of the Admiralty,
as well.
In this group will serve Oliver
Stanley, the War Secretary; Sir Sam-
uel Hoare, the new Air Minister, their
chiefs of staff and Ch'urchill' own

Prof. Behre To Speak Today
On Role OfMinerals In War


Prof. Charles S. Behre, Jr., dis-
tinguished authority on geology, will
discus "The Role of Minerals in
the War" in a University lecture
sponsored by the geology department
at 4:15 p.m. today at Rackham Lec-I
ture Hall.
Professor Behre has recently re-
turned from more than a year of
intensive research on the minerals
and mines of Europe, particularly
studying lead and zinc mines. Though
analyzing mining in general, he es-
pecially concerned himself with the
lead and zinc mines of England,
France, Spain, Sardinia, Italy, Tur-

dicated, Professor Behre has an un-
usual background in knowledge of
mineral resources plus the added
advantage of being in Europe imme-
diately before war was declared.,
Analyzing Professor Behre's talk
to be given today, Professor Lovering
said that the lecture would not only
cover the role of minerals in war,
but "what .is more important, what
part these minerals will play in any
peace settlement that is to be made."
A famed geologist, zoologist and
geographer, Professor Behre began
his pareer as field geologist for the
Wisconsin Geologic Survey in 1916;
