Amid the stores of applications for
.admittance into the United States un-
der the new immigration quota which
was opened July 1, reports of scandal-
ous commercializing of peasant ignor-
ance in England have' recenty reached
the consular offices at London. Pos-
ing as expert "fixers" and assuring
would-be British immigrants that they
would have uno trouble upon arriving
In the United States, if they would
just allow their affairs to be fixed up
properly, these unscrupulous hasards
of' the American's good name charge
their innocent 'clients anywhere from
$5 to $25 and then disappear from the
the scene, allowing things to take
their own course.
A large portion of these profession-
al "inside men" are Americans and
the influence which their operations
are producing upon the peasant popu-
lation of England is anything but fav-
orable to this country. Guiding 'their
clients into supposed centers for con-
sular examination, they get them all
prepared for their journey and as the
date of making final arrangements for
passage approaches the whole under-
hand trick becomes'evident.
Although the British-authorities are
making every possible attempt to
track down the perpetrators of this
malicious treatment of their own tit-
izens, /it behooves the American gov-
ernment to take some sort of action
in the matter, if it be only a proclam-
ation stating the actual immigration
conditions. This would eliminate any
possible chance foil misconstruing the
actions of the consular officers when
refusing applications for passports.
Under the prevailing conditions the
position of the United States is im-'
periled as far as the population of
Europe is concerned.
We never have had any too many
friends in our international relations
and cannot afford to have these con-
sciousless fakes operating on the oth-
er side of the Atlantic to the detriment
of our good name now.
Coincident with an increased real-
ization of civic responsibility the pre-
cedent of celebrating a "safe and
sane" Fourth of July established it-
self throughout 'most of the country
a number of years ago. While the
'necessity for such a'restricted observ-
ance is markedly less here than in any
large city, it is'imperative that the
statutes of Ann Arbor be observed to
insure positive safety during this pa-
triotic commemoration.
There was atime not very far dist-
ant when Independence Day meant
little, more than the explosion of tons
of fancy fire-works all over the coun-
try. Now, with much of the celebra-
tion taken out of the hands of pri-
vate individuals and established as a
function of public amusement by many
municipalities, the dangers which
frequently manifested themselves
through fatal accidents have for the
most part passed. Some few, how-
ever, not realizing the purpose of these
protective measures, insist on giving
their children money for fire-works
which may be purchased just outside
'the limits of Ann Arbor. But that
they could comprehend the dangers
that are let loose with the ignition of
every little fuse wire!
Here is one case in which benefiting
by experience is not a particularly
wise policy for the dangers of the in-
itial experience are unfathomable. It
is not for the observance of the law
that we plead as much as the motive

behind the formulation of it. It is
the powder to watch out for and not
the policeman.
Ten thousand aliens have entered
the port of New York, Five thousand
more are clamoring for admittance.
Immigration officials will labor des-
perately for two days and the country
will have taken upon itself several
thouspnd more responsibilities. Good,
charitable, big-hearted Ameriea!
"Business is rotten," says the tax-
payer. "Business is good," says the
real estate man. The national budget
was balanced this year with a surplus
of $310,000,000. "Business is good,"
says the director of the bureau of the
budget. The vote is two to one.
Living costs in Gerniany tripled

Mimes Will Give
Summer Spotlight
One of the few purely student the-
atrical offerings of the Summer ses-
sion will be the.annual Summer Spot-
light, a vaudeville performance given
by Mimes of the Michigan Union, the
dramatic .organization that produces
the annual Union, opera. The Spot-
light will take place on Thursday,
July 19, in the Hill auditorium. Be-
cause of the fact that it is staged there
the only device that 'is is possible to
use is the spotlight and from this it
derives its name.
As this is practically the only op-
portunity for students to do anything
on the stage during the Summer ses-
-sion, there is always a better array of
talent available for thi sperformance
than for the similar productions pro-
duced in the spring when there are
other outlets for dramatic ability.
Students here from other schools
for the Summer session are eligible
to appear and are urged to come out.'
Tryouts will be held anytime that itj
is convenient and can be arranged by
calling Jack Briscoe at 131.
Students at Douglas Lake Begin Study
in Science; 'New Buildings
Work at the University Biological1
station, located on the shores oft
Douglas Lake, began yesterday witht
about 65 students enrolled.t
The camp is maintained by the Uni-
versity as a station for research and
instructon in biology. It is open for
the eight weeks July 2 to August 241
Inclusive and operates as a regular
part of the summer curriculum in
science. Such an Interest was mani-~
fested in the camp this year by in-
quiries sent to the dean of the sum-t
mer session that it was thought neces-t
sary to erect two more buildings to
house those attending the camp. In
addition two new laboratories have
been constructed. The country about
the camp offers fine opportunity to
study formations and the topography
of the land is such that it offers
chance for" research not found in any
other biological camp in the country.
The camp is under the direction of
Prof. George R. LaRue, of the Zool-
ogy department. He is aided by a
staff of University assistants.
Freshman registrations in the Uni-
versity for next year show an in-
crease of 10 per cent oer the num-
her registered at this time last year.I
A total of 440 applicants had been
accepted up to yesterday afternoon;
according to Registrar Arthur G. Hall.
The enrollment for 'last year alsoc
showed a 10 per cent increase overt
that of the year before.. +
Although this i'crease would seem
to indicate larger total enrollment1
next year, Registrar Hall stated that+
such an early prediction could not
be made with certainty. He stated1
that freshman applications will be re-

ceived in his office at the rate of 20 a
day during this month.1
Twenty-two students are enrolled in
the vocational training courses which
are being conducted by the School ofl
Education, at the Cass Technical high
school in Detroit. According to of-7
ficials in that school, the Detroit in-;
stitutioli .offers excellent opportunities
for research work in this department1
and has good teaching equipment.
Credit for the work is given in the
School of Education. I
Educational Club to Meet
The men's educational club of the;
School of Education will hold its reg-
ular meeting at 7 o'clock tonight at
the Union. A speaker will be pro-"
vided to give a talk at the meeting.-
