VOL. XV. No. 36




London, July 31.-(By A.P.)- The
members of the experts committee of
the inter-allied conference, after ex-
aminating the proposals submitted by
the French experts yesterday as a
compromise plan to end the confer-
ence deadlock over security for ,te
Dawes plan, declared their belief to-
day that the French proposals with
minor alterations, would probably be
acceptable to the conference.
The French proposal was accepted
unanimously by committee No. 1 of
the conference while an amendment
put forward by British members this
morning Was withdrawn, both .th
French and British delegates are con-
gratulating each other on the happy
turn of events.
One delegate said:
"The great difficulty of the confer-
ence is now over."
The conference took a new lease of
life when the conferees assembled to
consider the new proposals present-
ed by Premier Herriot yesterday aft-
The British participants view the
French plan as the greatest effort yet
madecto bring about a settlement of
th6 conference differences so the Daw-
es plan can be put into operation
and they are of the opinion that it
will be a great, step toward a final
The plan was laid befoje the experts
at noon. After considering it for an
hour the commitee adjourned until 3
o'clock. One of the points of the
French proposal provides for a board
of-arbitration calculated to make a
declaration of default on the part ofi
Germany by the reparation commis-
sion much more difficult to obtain than
now. Another provides for setting up
machinery to take care of defects
which might develop in the working
of the Dawes plan and still another
'establishes guarantees against Ger-
many maneuvering out of payments
in kind.
According to a French semi-official
report the proposal also provides for
the evacuation of the Ruhr in suc-
cessive steps as the securities issued
under the plan are floated.
Dusseldorf, July 31.-The German
mine owners and the French-Belgian
commissions in the Ruhr have agreed
upon an extension of the economic
accord now in force in that territory
until the Dawes plan becomes opera-
tive, except that after August 15 it
is stipulated that the Germans can
denounce the arrangement on five
days notice. The new agreement
provides for the deduction of the lic-
ense and export fees which the occu-
pation forces have heretofore impos-

For the first time in the history of
the University hospital, its book keep-
ing and financial system is to be au-
dited to decide whether the best sys-
tem is being used, it was learned from
University officials today.
The Board of Regents ordered an
audit of the books of the entire Uni-
versity at either the May or June
meetings, and, according to Shirley W.
Smith, secretary of the University, the
work is to be done by the Price Wat-
erhouse cfnpany of Detroit. It is
reported that at various times Uni-
versity officials have asked for an
audit but not until this year has any
action been taken. The initiative in
this matter has been taken, it is said,
by Regent Ralph Stone of Detroit,
chairman of the finance committee
of the Board of Regents.
The American Hospital association
has prepared a uniform accounting
system for hospitals so that statistics
may be compared easily. This sys
tem has been carefuilly worked out
and University officials, state that its
adoption in the local hospital will be
strongly considered.

Miss Elizabeth Fox, of Nw York,}
spoke last night in the Natural Sciencet
auditorium on the "Place of the
Nurse in Public Health Work." She
admitted that being sick or having
ailments is still the fashion. The ob-
ject of this work is to raise the level
of the health of society and the nurse
is well adapted to do this; but the
people must also learn how to help
themselves. The desire is to have
people do this by their own choice.
In order to bring about this new
state of mind it is necessary for the
people to know the principles of hy-
giene, how to apply them, why to ap-
ply them, and to acquire the habit of
thinking of the pursuit of health as a
highly suitable thing.
Of course much can be gained
through magazines, lectures, and the
films, but this means reaches only
the group. Something more personal,
more far-reaching is needed. That is
the nurse's opportunity to step in.
1 The nurse explains what hygiene
is and tries to make it fashionable,
she breaks down old superstitions and
prejudices and, most inconspicuous of
all, urges people to go to real doc-
tors not quacks.
Public sentiment is a strong factor
in any field, and in this respect you
must work with individuals and
groups. There is no one who can
quite take the place of the Public
HealthtNurse. She Is the "Messenger
of Health" and to use a golf term,

Detroit, July 31-(By A.P.)-Gov.
Groesbeck, George Welch, speaker of
the house, and Fred S. Pantlind of
Grand Rapids conferred with Presi-
dent Coolidge in Washington Wednes-
day regarding the prospects of Repub-
lican success in Michigan, and partic-
lilarly the senatorial situation, accord-
ing to a special dispatch to the De-
troit News. The Michigan men went
to Washington avowedly to adjust
some financial settlements involving
the Roosevelt hospital at Camp Cus-
Gov. Groesbeck the dispatch states,
emerged from the White House with
the statement that the people of
Michigan do not want to throw the
presidential election into congress
and the prediction that Coolidge will
carry the state by 350,000. Speaker
Welch is quoted as saying that the
national administration will "keep its
hands. off the senatorial situation"
and let the voters make their own

The governor's statement in Wash-
ington was his first definite stand in
support of Coolidge since the Repub-
lican national convention when it was
reported that he was displeased with
the manner in which some things re-
lating to the Michigan delegation were
arranged by the convention and na-
tional organization management.
The specific cause of the visit to
Washington was a claim of $116,000
against the federa government for
the expense of treatment for veterans
in the hospital. Frank T. Hines, di-
rector of the veterans bureau prom-
ised the Michigan delegation that a
man will be assigned to inquire into
the justness of the claim.
While in Washington, Mr. Pantland
perfected an agreement whereby the
Roosevelt hospital will take over the
vocational training of its patients
which heretofore has been handled by
the government.
