According to theater owners and
patrons there are two kinds of pests
who frequent' the playhouses; one is
the late-coner and the othr is the
early-leaver. - Both cause distrgcton
to other members of the audieU and
to the members of the Mast.
There is an excuse for the lato-
comer. He' may have forgotten his
tickets, or he may be only fashinably
late. There is even a virtue in his
misdemeanor. When he arrives, he
brings with him all of the other late-
comers. It appearse as th gh they
had all planned to arrive at the same
time-about the time that the lights
begin to dim for the rainstorm n the
first scene.
But the early-lp ver has been char-
acterized as a "brazen violator of all
rules of common courtesy and theater
etiquette." Perhaps suh terms are
exaggerated in theirappilcation but
there is no. doubt that Me 'maiine
pest" has made himself conspicuous
here on the campus with the opening
of the lecture program of the Summer
session. The annoyance caused by a
member of the audience leaving before
the close of a lecture, can best be de-
scribed by the speaker and the people
whom he disturbes along the course
of his departure.
. Curiously enough, the discourteous
ones are not strangers to the campus.
Among the early leavers, the familar
faces of many regular students are
The "matinee pest" compares

public nuisance.s
Those who have attended the reg-
ular sessions,; of the University for
several years and' are now for the
first time availing themselves of the
opportunity to stdy at te Summer
sesdon are astounded b7 the possibil-
ities for interesting work which are
brought out through brilliant class
room discussions.
The discouraging indifference that
frequently characterizes the aver-
age college student and his disdain
for the man who intelligently argues
with the professor for a moment aft-
er the hour is up are replaced by the
active participation of mature individ-
uals in the conduct of the class and
their reluctant cessation of queries
and arguments when the close of
the hour approaches.
Sincerity of purpose being more
firmly instilled in those of greater
years, we find that the contribution
which some 'of the visiting educators,
men and women who have seen sev-
eral years of worldly life, Is a trem-
endous nfsuence upon tho sucess of
the professor himself. The v have a
purpose in mind-to learn someting
-and are willing to exert themselves
in the- attempt.
"Pumping" the studentis the prac-
tice necessitated by the inactivity of
many regular students, but in' the
presence of people of genuine ambi-
tion, the professor is the one most fre-
quently subjected to "pumping." In
exchange of ideas constitutes the great
advantage of the latter method. The
student freely expresses himself and
awaits the judgment of the professor
on his remarks'. In this manner, it
is mores possible to consider all sides
of a problem than if the "prof." mere-
ly handed out the facts and then had
to try to entice his timid subject to
repeat the information to him the tol-

lowing day.
In addition to the actual information
gained through the summer courses,
it would be a worthy task for students
who do not yet know how to take
part in the conduct of a class, to learn
that art from a few who evidently
have mastered it. "

Delegates to the fourth annual

the character of the work depending
on the individual student.

Regent Hubbard Upholds Worth
Of Swift's Gulliver's Travels

Dr. L. L., Hubbard, Regent of the
University of Michigan, -claimed last
night in his lecture before the packed
auditorium of Natural Science build-
ing that as long as people had a sense
of humor "Gulliver's Travels" would
live. He said that contrary to pop-
ular belief "Gilliver's Travels" is not,
a child's story but a humorous work
with real literary worth behind it.
The pages of the book read so smooth-
ly that the fascination of reading them'
can not be denied. Jonathan Swift's
style is so clear, his diction so simple
tha't it is impossible not.to understand

him. His gravity in the midst pf ab-
surdities invest his story with real-
Gulliver is characterized by Dr.
Hubbard as a well conditioned, well
infohed man whose knowledge has.
made him somewhat blase. He wears
a self satisfied smile. Knowledge of
the world has made him a cynic, yet
he is saved by a sense of humor."
:4ullivei-'s Travels" was publishel
in the year 1629. There 'ivere four edi-
tions of the book.
Dr. Hubbard's lecture was interest-
ingly illustrated with slides picturing
events in the travels of Gulliver.

Speaking on' "Our Transportation
Problems from the Railway View-
point," Prof. Henry E. Riggs, of the
civil engineering' department, em-
phasized particularly the importance
of the railway as, perhaps, the great-
est factor in the growth and unifica-
tion of the United States.
"Public utilities," he said, "are of
most recent origin, consequently the.
relationships' with. which we are now
dealing are entirely new and were
unknown in their present forms to
our fathers. The growth of trans-
portation systems, parallel with that
of manufacturing, new applications of
power, and teh development of the
fine arts, has been phenomenal In the
past 20 or 30 years. As a consequ-
ence we are dealing with amounts pf
money, and properties of such magni-
tude covering an extent of territory,
undreamed of I nthe past centuries. .
Pointing out that the railroad' rep-
resents one of the oldest public util-
ities, giving.its origin some 100 years
ago, Professor Riggs said that it was'
not until comparatively recent years
that the telephone, telegraph, electric
light, electric traction, the application
of electric' power, the improvement
and the extensions of the use, of our,
national resources, were brought to.
a point of efficiency where they might
be used in a practical way. The
growth of the automobile, he said, is
the most remarkable, having reach-
ed a high point of efficiency in less
than 20 years.

the summer months are hurrying
away to the four corners of the earth,
mostly to that particular corner of
the earth which Europe occupies.
Among those -who have already left
are Prdfessor Frederick G. Novy,' pro-
fessor of bacteriology in the medical
school, who with his sons left before
the end of the term for Europe where
he attended the Pasteur celebration
in Paris.He .will spend some time
in Strassburg, and other points of the
continent, before going to London to
be present at the 800th anniversary
of the founding of St. Bartholomew's
hospital. Dr. Novy as a pupil of the
f -mous' 14asteur was invited as a
special guest to attend the meetings
in Paris and London.
Scott in Europe
Prof. William Herbert Hobbs o, the
geology department is also travelling
in foreign lands. At present 'he is in
Australia where he went to read a
paper to a meeting-of geologists there.
He will probably be joined by Prof.
E. C. Case, also of the geology de-
partment, who. has been for the last
year in South Africa. Prof. Hugo P.
1iieme of the French department will
leave shortly for Europe as will also
Prof. Rene Talamon of, the same de-
partment. Professor Talamon will
conduct a series of lectures in a sum-
mer course in the University of Paris.
Prof. F. N. Scott of the rhetoric de-
part pent who with his wife sailed
for Europe on June 19, is probably in
Europe by this time. Prof. Scott will I
attend the meeting of English teach-
ers in Cambridge, after which he and
Mrs. Scott will make an extended
Mediterranean trip. Prof. Bruce M.
Donaldson of the Fine Arts dep'
ment has gone- to Europe where he
will study. Phillip Bursely of the
French department has also gone t
the continent. Prof. Joseph Drake
of the Law school with his daughter,.
Elizabeth Drake, '25,thave also gone

Prof. Max Winkler, head of the
German department and his family

an Monday for a European trip. Prof.'
Thomas F. Trueblood, head of the de-
partment of public speaking will leav,

New England states, returning to
Ann Arbor early in August.
Registrar Arthur G. Hall 'and his
family leave Monday night for Les
