Nontiation Contest Untouched, No
Material Change In Lineun
New York, June 24..--(By AP)-For-
getful for the moment of Its bitter riv-
alry over candidates and policies, the
Democratic National convention began
its session in Madison Square Garden
today with a militant demonstration
of hearty enthusiasm.
Meeting only to go through the for-
malities of affecting a preliminary or-
ganization, the delegates indulged in
a twenty minute old time Democratic
demonstration in honor of Woodrow
Wilson and cheered to the echo a
keynote speech in which- Senator Pat
Harrison pleaded for party harmony
and reconsecration of the fundamental
principles of Democracy.
Then, after three hours of oratory,
and noise making, the Convention ad-
journed until tomorrow, leaving its
committee to work out details of its
organization, while the managers for
the score of candidates for the presi-
dency continued their preparation for
Not a single voice was raised in
protest or debate'at any stage in the
proceedings. Picking their words and
making their plans warily party offi-
cials steered the convention away
from the dangerous passages that lie
in its course and left it to the com-
mittee and to later sessions to de-
velope the full force of conflicting
currents that are moving beneath the
Aside from the contest over the
nomination, which appear to have un-
dergone no material change during
the day, the most difficult of the con-
vention's problems rests tonight in
the hands of the platform committee,
which began its labors immediately
afterits appointment at the opening
convention session. Far into tonight
its leaders battled over prohibition,
farm relief, foreign policies and the
Klan issue, with no agreemnt in sight.
The rules committee speedily put
an end to the much discussed move to
do away with the old rule requiring
a two thirds vote of the covention to
nominate. Like many similar abroga-
tion proposals in its behalf it collaps-
ed when it reached the stage of action.
Only three votes-all from states in-
structed for McAdoo-voted to throw
the long established rule into the dis-
card. Before the credentials com-
mittee the McAdoo forces won a vic-
tory by securing a convention seat for
a McAdoo alternate who will vote in
the absence of .one of the delegates
from Oregon.
Union Registration Open
All mien students of the summer
session may register at any time for
their Michigan Union membership at
the main desk of the Union. The fee

tion. Life members who have paid

All Education
Assembly Will
Be Held Today
At 4 o'clock this afternoon In room
203 of Tappan hall, faculty members
of the School of Education and stu-
dents enrolled in the department for
the summer session will hold an as-
sembly. Several professors will speak
briefly on their special branches of
work; Dean Whitney will be present.
Following the meeting an informal re-
ception will be given in the offices on
the first floor.
By Monday evening 344 students
had enrolled for summer In the school,
that number representing a consider-
able increase over the one for the cor-
responding day of registration last
year. At the end of the week the
total number registered will be un-
usually large, it is expected.
The assembly and reception held
today will be followed by the organ-
ization of the Men's Educational club
and the Girl's Educational club. The
first meetings will probably be held
next week. At the end of the session
it is customnry for the two clubs to
cooperate in giving a dinner.
Several new instructors on the
teaching staff here for the first time,
are to be introduced this afternoon.
Prof. Cleo Murtland has returned
after a semester's leave of absence
from the University of California at
Berkeley. Her subject is vocational
There are more students taking edu-
cation during the summer than dur-
ing the school year, say authorities in
the department, and more courses are
offered for the short session.
Ann Arbor continues to be free
from smallpox, according to Dr. J. A.
Wessinger, city health officer, who
says that not a single case has been
reported in several weeks. One case
was reported In April.
About 1,500 cases have been report-
ed in Detroit to date, according to
.statistics compiled by the state health
department, and 130 deaths have re-
sulted in that city. Dr. Wessinger re-
ports that physicians are continuing
to vaccinate a number of people ev-
ery day in this city.
Persistent rumors that no one is al-
lowed to enter Detroit without a vac-
ination scare were branded false to-
day by Dr. Wessinger. "However,"
the doctor said, "persons might enter
a quarantine district in Detroit and
be required to either show a vaccina-
tion scar or be treated before they
could get out."


New students and any others interest-
ed will be given an opportunity to take i
a free tour to points of interest in and
about Ani Arbor tomorrow, begin-
ning at 2:30 P. M., in automobiles,
furnished by the Exchange club of,
the city.-
The trip will include drives through
the south-west residence section, the
Geddes Avenue boulevard, the winding
road from Maint Street to Barton
Hills, the high road along the east
bank of the Huron river and the old
boulevardafrom' Broadway end past
the fireplace and island.
Several of the'newer buildings on
the campus will be visited, first the
various departments of the gen-
eral library, then the new Clements
Library, and finally the Michigan Un-
ion, which will be inspected from top
to, tap-room. The automobiles in
which the trip will be made will line
up along North. University Avenue.
This tour is the first of a series of
excursions planned by Carlton F.
Wells of the rhetoric department who
will conduct all of thenm in person.)
This first excursign given by thle
Exchange club of the city, is intended
to show the students the good will jof
the community so that they may know,
that the citizens welcome them here.

ed to hand in their names to Room

With an enrollment of 80 thus far it
is expected that the total number of
students taking the courses. in phys-
ical education and athletic coaching
will be greater than the total of last
year, according to Assistant Director
Elton E. Wieman.
The registration thus far includ-
es representatives from 24 states-and
it is probable that several more will
be represented before the end of the
week when more than 100 are expect-
ed to have enrolled.
That this does not include all those
taking the coaching courses is ex-
plained by Coach Wieman who stated
that perhaps twice the number of
students enrolled in the school
are also electing the courses although
enrolled in some other school on the
The coaching school for this ses-
sion offers 12 courses given by a staff
of 12 instructors. Among the courses
included are theory and practice of
football, basketball, track, baseball,
gymnastics, athletic training, and or-
ganized play and recreation.
The courses are given mostly by the
members of the Varsity coaching
health service and gymnasium staff
although there are several men from
other schools conducting courses.

Yank Athletes
To Train While
On Board Ship
New York, June 24. -- Profiting
from the lesson of four years ago
when American Olympic athletes, de-
prived of proper training facilities on
their trip to Antwerp, arrived in such
condition 'that their chances of vic-
tory were jeopardized, the team that
sails tomorrow for France has been
provided with elaborate equipment to
keep in condition on shipboard.
The steamer America, on which the
team will 5 make the voyage, has been
equipped with a running track on the
promenade deck, a swimming tank
large enough to permit diving prac-
tice, boxing rings and rowing ma-
chines for the oarsmen.
Eight men will have specially built
quarters to practice their specialties,
while "captive" javelins will be used
to keep the spear tossers in trim.

Total Passes Number At Similar Time
Last Year; Expect 400 More
During Week
Reports on the registration for the
summer session up to date as given
out by Dean Edward H. Kraus, of the
Summer session showed an increase
of 267 enrollments yesterday. This
makes a total of 2,851 students in the
summer session which is, an increase
over the total at this time last year.
The enrollment up to date has con-
firmed the convictions of the staff that
the summer registration would be
slow, due to the fact that several
schools are closing-late this year, ac-
cording to Dean Kraus. His predict-
ions for the total number of enroll-
ments in the summer session, how-
ever, exceeds the 3,200 mark,
COnsistent with the report pub-
lished in The Daily yesterday, the
Medical school, Graduate school and
School of Education show the great-
est increase in registration. The.
Medical school has registered 277 stu-
dents up to date which is an increase
of 45 students'over the 232 enrolled
at this time last year. Figures for
the enrollment in the Graduate school
show an increase of 92 students this
year, or a total of 585. This school
had enrolled 493 students at the same
date last year.
Rankin Prepares
Map Of England
Prof. Thomas E. Rankin, of the
Rhetoric department and secretary of
the summer session, is preparing a
history map of the British Isles for
A. J. Nystrom and Co., publishers and
importers of maps. Professor Rankin
will go to Edinburgh after the close
of the summer session to consult with
the foreign house, W. and A. K. John-

at a standstill because mine owners in
this state declare they cannot compete

- "The remoteness and isolation of
Australia has been responsible for
most of her troubles," said the speak-
er. He went on to mention the ani-
mal pests which have sprung up as a
result of the absence of larger an-
mas on the continent. "Nature play-
ed Australia a dirty trick," was the
quotation ascribed to Professor Had-
den by Professor Hobbs, "who can
ride a kangaroo?"
The island continent has large re-
sources in minerals, according to the
professor, several mines having been
opened, yielding copper, and gold as
well as other metals. The contribu-
tions to the civilized world made by
Australia have been many, including
notably the Australian secret ballot,
their system of land registration, and
their military training system. Pro-
fessor Hobbs praised the services of
the Australians in the, world war, and
showed certain slides of their troops
in action.
Calver Speaks
"Public Health as a Career" was
the topic of a talk given by Homer
N. Calver of the American Public
Health Association of New York City
last night in the Natural Science aud-
Mr. Calver, in the course of his lec-
ture, stated that the beginning of Pub-
lic Health as a separate work came
about through the growing fear of
epidemics and pests. At first this
fear brought about the training of
physicians and sanitary engineers to
cope with diseases, but these people
were not trained in public health and
confined themselves to the care of the
sick and the bettering of sanitary con-
ditions in the cities.
Many Positions Open
Now it is the desire of those inter-
ested in this work to train people for
public health alone and to build up a
demand for trained men and women in
this field who should be well paid for
their services.
The speaker said that positions may
be found through foundation societies
and such official organizations as in-
surance companies and industrial or-
ganizations, and to some extent in un-
official ones like the Y. M.:C. A. and
the Boy Scouts and those of a similar
