London, Aug. 1-(By A.P.)-The ex-
perts of the inter-allied reparation
conference indicated this afternoon
that they expect to settle all the out-
standing problems of the conference
up to them for solution before the af-
ternoon was over.
The experts who did not leave
Downing Street until 2:15 o'clock, this
morning returned to their task at 11
o'clock and during a two hour session
adpted the French proposals for the
modification of the Dawes plan. They
adjourned to reassemble later in the
Owen D. Young of the Dawes com-
mittee who has maintained an at-
titude of restrained hopefulness ever
since Premier Herriot's'plan was pro-
duced was enthusiastic when he left
the foreign office.f
"We'll finish up this afternoon," he
If the experts conclude their re-
ports this afternoon, their reports
will be submtited to a plenary session
of the conference tomorrow. The
Americans believe the invitation to
Germany will be dispatched.
Berlin,'Aug. 1,-The proposal made
by the French at the London confer-
ence to evacuate the Ruhr within two
years, conditional upon the success-
ful disposal on the international mar-
ket of the railroad and industrial
bonds to be issued under the Dawes
plan has been received with consid-
erable astonishment and strong oppo-
sition in German official circleswhere
the French decision is devoided of
any just basis.
It is contended that Germany's con-
sent to the Franco-Belgian occupation
plan, is impossible because such an
agreement would amount to tacit ap-
proval of the legality of the Ruhr oc-
Kirkwall, Scotland, Aug. 1.-(By A.
P.)-The American Army round the
world fliers were unable to hop off
today for Hoefn, Hornaford, Iceland,
because patrolers renorted a heavy
fog off Iceland.
Hoefn, Hornaford. Iceland, Aug. 1.
The 80 inhabitants of this little fish-
ing and farming village were keyed
to the highest pitch today in antici-
pation of the arrival from Kirkwall of
the American world fliers.
The United States cruiser Raleigh
arrived here yesterday and found all
preparations complete for the coming
of the airmen, down to the erection
of a big red sign, lettered in English:
"Welcome to Hornafjord,"
The village nestles in front of huge
barren mountains and great ice fields
that sweep to the edge of the mirror-
like fjord where the planes will be
moored during the brief .halt.
On their arrival the officers of the

Raleigh learned that the sea between
Iceland and Greenland is probably
completely free of ice, which will be
a most important factor in the flight
across that expanse of water.
Tallahassee, Fla., Aug. 1.-The far-
sightedness of Florida's legislators of
the Nineteenth Century is disclosed in
ap old law unearthed in the archives
of the state capitol here. It is an
:act which became effective in Janu-
ary, 1855, and provided heavy penal-
ties for employes of railroads found
guilty pf being intoxicated while in
the performance of their duty.
At the time of its enactment there
were no railroads in Florida.

Will Complete
Course Begun
32 Years Ago
More than 32 years ago Mrs. Harry
D. Jewell, of Grand Rapids, came
here to study; this summer 'she re-
turned to take up the work which she
started then. She will be graduated
next June.
"I'm Scotch, so I really couldn't
give up the dream that my health
made impossible years ago," she de-
clared laughingly.
Mrs. Jewell came here in the fall
of 1891 from Olivet college. She had
been taking classical studies, and
intended to enter journalistic work
after the transfer. A heavy schedule
resulted, after the first year, in brok-
en health, and Mrs. .Jewell returned
to her home in Grand Rapids.
Since then she has assisted her
husband in his work among delinqu-.
ent children through the juvenile
court. Child psychology has been her
particular field of investigation; and
she has lectured throughout the state
on that subject. Several of her plays,
chiefly domestic comedies, have been
produced in Grand Rapids.
"Women are going to turn, not to
mah-jongg, but to study when they
have completed their part in the com-
munity's service," Mrs. Jewell thinks
The influence of the war remains with
us and consta tly demands that wo-!
men shall be more fully prepared for
efficient living. Every woman should
study for some definite vocation, she
The change in the University was
at first incomprehensible to her, al-
though the men and women here now
have the same spirit that prevailed 32
years ago. "Youth hasn't changed,
and I thoroughly sympathize with its
ideas," she said.
Mrs. Jewell expressed her appre-
ciation of the Michi an League pro-
ject, and announced her determina-
tion to support it. She is glad to be
here while the active drive is in pro-
Next year she will specialize in
rhetoric and in June will get her

Divides Students'
Characters In 3
Main Categories
Al4 teachers are interested in the
personnel of their classes and fre-_
quently make little private classifi-
cations of their students which are as
illuminating as they are amusing. One
such category has been made by Doc-
tor Willet, who is conducting class-
es in the School of Education this
summer-whether it applies to any of
his present classes he did not say.
Therein he made a three-fold division,
the conformists, the belligerent, and
the group who say, "What's the use?"
The conformists are those who a-
gree with the teacher either in truth
or in seeming. They are always pre-
pared, seldom question any proceed
ure of the class, and very often get
the high grades. It is often suspected
that a desire to attain such a grade
is the reason for their conformity.
But, of course, this has not been prov-
The belligerents question everything
he says, either from a mistaken idea
that in such a way is class interest
attained or from a really disagreeable

attitude; and acquiese only when
their own ingenious minds can, de-
vise no other solution.
By far the most numerous class is
the third, for many seem to be indif-
ferent, others are lazy, and some have,
by a laborious process, figured out
what they do is of no avail; and that
it would be better, therefore, for them
to save their energy. This they pro-
ceed to do very efficiently.
However, all of these classes are in-
fluenced by the personality of the
teacher, which seems in many cases
to be the iost important feature in

ent of the Indianapolis division. Three

Michigan-Illinois Football
Game To Be Classic Of Fall

When Michigan's football team faces
Illinois in the dedication- game at
Champaign, Oct. 18, it will oppose
what will probably be the most dan-
gerous eleven in many years. With
the ever-threatening Grange in the
Illinois backfield, the Wolverine elev-
en will have to play a perfect defen-
sive game in order to check Coach
Zuppke's team.
Michigan's team next year will be
largely a fast and evenly balanced,
machine, but it will lack the brilliant
play of individual stars as in form-
er years. Whether the result will be
an improvement over past seasons
Eich Presents
Ri Van Winkle
In Recitation
Great enthusiasm and hearty ap-
plause welcomed Prof. E. M. Eich's
recital of the play "Rip Van Winkle,"
at 8:00 o'clock in the Auditorium of
University hall last night.
Professor Eich prefaced his recital)
of the play proper with a short his-
tory of the play and the career of Jo-
seph Jefferson, the great actor with
whom it is always identified.
Joseph Jefferson, the best loved of
American comedians began his stage
career at the age of four. During
his seventy years on the stage he por-
trayed eight-five different characters.'
Among these Professor Eich cited
"The Rivals," "Our American Cousin,"
and "The Cricket on the Hearth.' But
"Rip Van Winkle,' best known of all
was played by him for forty years.
In fact the great man himself lost
track of the number of times. Sta-
tisticians were not prevalent at that
tine but an estimate of 6,000 times
has been made.
Joseph Jefferson, said Professor
Eich, seems to have been the first
American comedian to conciously cul-
tivate the taste of American audi-
ences. He soon discovered that what
is wanted above all is a character in
which humor and pathos are com-
bined. The success of the plays
"Lightnin' " and "The "The Music
Master" illustrate this point. Joseph
Jefferson found his ideal character in
"Rip Van Winkle."
Both in his preface and characteri-
zation Professor Eich showed us 'Rip'
as a character of unfailing good-hu-

when one of two men were depened1
upon to carry the brunt of the at-
tack is yet to be seen. One disadvant-
age will be to a large extent elimin-
ated-that arising from the fact that
the individual star is generally close-
ly watched by the opposing eleven,
and his usefulness, therefore, mater-
ially checked. With a large humber
of men who can be depended upon, a
greater variety of attack can be evolv-
ed. This is likely to prove most ef-
fective against one or two star teams.
The success of the Michigan eleven
next fall will depend for the most
part upon the quality of the defense
The backs are fast enough to carry a
good attack against any Conference
team, and if backed by fast line play,
should encounter no difficulty in scor-I
ing in any of the games. But the de-
fense must be practically perfect in
order to check the dangerous offen-
sives of the stronger Conference
teams, particularly that of the Illini.
The Illinois game, dedicating as it
will one of the largest stadia in the
world, will attract in the neighbor-
hood of 80,000 spectators. Unless the
prospects of one of the two teams un-
dergo considerable change, this game
will be one of the classics of foot-
ball history.
Dawson Reports
Gain Of Favor
For Ec Courses
Speaking on the subject of "The
Social Studies in the Secondary
Schools," Prof. Edgar Dawsong of
Hunter college, New York City, ad-
dressed those gathered in the Natural
Science auditorium at 5 o'clock yes-
terday afternoon.
Professor Dawson spoke of the Am-
erican Historical association from an
historical point of view. The re-
ports of the National Education com-
mittee appointed by this association,
hie believed to be the most able crit-
icism of any aspect of American edu-
cation. The curriculums of the social
studies advocated by the report of this
committee in 1899 and 1916 were
shown and contrasted. Since the first
report the studies of government, ec-
onomics, and sociology showed a
great gain in popularity. In the first
report a connected study of the evolu-
tion of society was advocated, while
in the second a cross section study
of present times and problems only is
taken up.
Professor Dawson said the idea of
current events in the secondary
schools was not in his opinion con-
ducive to real thought and informa-
tion. The discussion of international
affairs in high schools cannot be based
on any real information. The tend-
ency of today deals with evolution
of social institutions without laying
the emphasis on the wars, lines of
kings and politics, to, such an extent
that the teachers are confronted with
the problem of whether or not there
will be any history in the schools.
No one ever has discovered the
secret of perpetual" motion, although
scientifically, nothing in existence is
ever still,

Dr. Harley A. Haynes, medical su-
perintendent of the Michigan Home
and Training school at Lapeer, has
been appointed director of the Uni-
versity hospital, according to an an-
nouncement made by Shirley W.
Smith, secretary of the university, to-
day. Dr. Haynes will fill the posi-
tion formerly held by D. Christopher
G. Parnall, whose resignation took
effect June 30 of this year. During
the interim, the position has been
filled by Robert G. Greve as acting
director. Mr. Greve formerly was
business officer of the University hos-
Dr. Haynes was born at St. Albans,
Vt., Dec. 1, 1876. He entered the un-
iversity in October of 1897 and was
graduated from the Homeopathic med-
ical school in 1902. He acted as in-
terne at the Homeopathic hospital
from July 1, 1902, until Jan. 20, 1903,
when he accepted a position as phy-
sician at the Michigan Reformatory at
Ionia, remaining there until Aug. 1,
1907. He then became assistant me-
ical superintendent at Lapeer and,
since January of 1912, has been med-
ical superintendent of that institution.
In speaking of the new director,
Dr. Hugh Cabot, dean of the medical
school, made the following statement
today; "I think that the board of re-
gents is entitled to be congratulated
upon the wisdom shown in the selec-
tion of Dr. Harley A. Haynes of La-
"This position requires a man of
ability quite beyond that of the av-
erage hospital superintendent. He
should be a man of broad vision and
wide knowledge of social and econom-
ic questions in addition to being a
capable administrator. The Univer-
sity hospital has many factions among
which are the training of medical
students, the teaching of physicians in'
advanced and post-graduate work,
the care of patients from all classes
of society and a very wide dut in
exemplifying the modern develop-
ments in medicine to the general pub-
lic. I believe that Dr. Haynes brings
to this position unusual qualifications.
His work at Lapeer as director of the
school for feeble-minded has stamped
him as an administrator of first abil-
ity, as an educator of unusual attain-
ment, as a specialist in the care of
the feeble-minded, equal to the best
in the country, and as a wise guide
and counselor in many difficult social
"He is widely known to the medi-
cal profession of the state of Mich-
igan and by them held in high re-
gard. During his long service at La-
peer he has of necessity seen much
of the legislative and administrative
departments of the state governmen
and has come to be much trusted by
the men holding these positions. He
will, I believe, be able to assist the
board of regents in working out the
many problems of satisfactory ad-
justment of the hospital to the needs
of the state, and I am confident that
under his administration the new and
enlarged University hospital will sat-

isfactorily perform all of its many
