Beneficial Reforms, Modern Develop-
ment Instituted In Provinces By
Eastern Power
"One of the most interesting of soc-
ial and political phenomena which
come to the notice of the traveller in
the East is that of the relation of the
Japanese and other oriental peoples,"
stated Professor Joseph R. Hayden af
the Political Science department in
his talk on "The Colonial Policy of
Japan", last night in the Natural
Science auditorium.
From a despotic and miltary rule,
Japan is endeavoring to change her
provincial governmental policies into
more friendly and equal relation-
ships with the inhabitants. Especi-
ally is this being done in the island
of Formosa and the province of Korea
Chinese in Formosa
The governor-general of Korea
stated that the fundamentals of th'e
Japanese colonial policy in the pro-
vinces were first of all economic de-
velopment and then education of the
people and from those would grow
political equality among the different
nationalities which compose the col-
Chinese are in the majority in For-
mosa and they resent the intrusion of
Japan bitterly. The Japanese have
introduced modern systems in every
branch of life and have improved the
material prosperity of the island.
Professor Iayden said that the Chin-
ese constantly criticize the develop-
ment of the Japanese colonial policy
and they say that Formosa is being
exploited by Japanese capitalists.
The tariff laws give Japan a monopoly
of Formosan trade and she is saidl
to be the only one who profits. Pro-
fessor Hayden stated that, to a great
extent, this is true.
Institute Reforms
In the past few years Japan has in-
augurated many beneficial reforms
in the provinces, not only in the gov-
ernments, which are beginning to in-
clude more of the natives, but also
have made important changes in the
education systems.
Up to the present time, Professor
Hayden said, it has been difficult for
Japan to carry out her policies due
to the continued rebelliousness of the
Chinese and Korean inhabitants. The
Koreans particularly resent, the Jap-
anese and many of thiem have left the
country in the last few years and have
settled in Siberia and Manchuria.
Austin, Texas, June 26.-Enrollment
in the department of English in the
University of Texas summer school
totals 957, an incerase of almost 100
over the enrollment of last summer,
Although there are more students tak-

ing freshman and sophomore courses,
the most noticeable increase is in
advanced work. There are 324 stu -
dents doing advanced and graduate
work in English and 18 are registered
for the thesis course. Most of the
latter number expect to take the mas-
ter's degree in Einglish at the sum-
mer commencement in August.

7lichigai Delegation At L ake Geuiieva
Y. il. C. A. Conference Numbers1
Thirty three students made up the!
Michigan delegation which represent-
ed the University at the annual confer-I
ence of the Y. M. C. A. and collegea
leaders held from June 13 to 24 ath
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The Michi-E
gan group was the largest delegation
of any other institution represented,.
though schools from all the Middle
western states had delegation there.t
Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota,t
North Western, Chicago, North Dak-
ota and South Dakota were amongt
those represented.
Among the problems which the con-
ference took up both in the delegationt
discussion groups, and from the plat- 1
form of war, arce, and campus prob-
lems. One of the most notable work
of the conference adoption of a resol-
ution against war which was sent to
European Universities, pledging the1
support of American students to sup-
port any movement against there-
currence of another war. Among the
speakers who discussed the war proh-
lem particularly were Curhy Page,.
Dudley Robbins, Sherwood Eddy, andl
Harrison Elliott, the leader of the1
repute, who spoke to the delegates
were Thomas Gilkey, John R. Mott,'
and Bishop Mac Dowell, who conduct-t
ed a communion service on the lastE
day of the conference.j
One of the outstanding events of the
conference was the departure of Perry
M. Iayden, '25, President Elect of the ,
Students Christian Association forl
Europe where he will inspect studentt
work on the continent, and particul-
arly the work done in foreign fields
by the University, such as the kitchen
maintained in Kiev, Russia, one of the
biggest enterprises of the University
or by any other such institution.
General health conditions in the
University have showed a decided
improvement over past years accord-
ing to authorities. Records kept at
the Health Service show a decrease of
more than 3000 in the dispensary calls
from the beginning of the 1923 term
until May 1, there having been only

29,544 such calls in that time as com-
pared with 32,876 during the last year.
The month of May was some what
unusual, and coincident with the cold-
er weather and lack of uniformity in
heating the rooning houses, there was
an increase in student illness. Small-
pox vaccinations to the number of
1055 added greatly to the usual dis-
pensary calls.
Ann Arbor has been miraculously
fortunate in escaping the smallpox
epidemic. Only two cases have been
recorded in the city and they were
among'the traveling population. There
are some recent outcroppings of the
disease in other parts of the state how-
Very few infections cases have been

than 2500 square feet of glass, have
been put in the new University flo-f

which is the bare concrete part in

completed as soon as the partitions
in the hospital are finished.
The new Nurse's dormitory, which

The addition to the University Pow-

Night's Lecture
Under the direction of Prof. F. N.
Menefee of the engineering depart-
ment, the second of a series of edu-
cational motion pictures was given at
eight o'clock last night in the Natural

were shown, "The Prevention of Diph-

ropolit an Life Insurance Co.", and
"The Danger that Never Sleeps".
In "Prevention of Diphtheria", wsa
shown the remarkable Schick test,
invented by Dr. Schick, to discover a

disease. If the patient shows suscep--
I ibility, treatment can then be given
to prevent the diph lhoria. Many dis-

cause and the after effects are often

In going over the 01(1 Shean house
on linton St. a short. time ago, plumb-
ers noticed an iron safe door in one
wall. At some time in its life the
handle had been tampered with and
broken off, and no effort on the part
of the curious men to open the door
availed. An angle in the outer wall
showed that a fair sized room was
shut by themysterious door. The
interest of prospective tenants and
also the owner was arouted, but still
the door remained stubbornly secure.
Yesterday morning the plumbers,
when they reported for work, found to
their astonishment, the door standing
serenly open. Upon inquiry it was
discovered that neither the landlord
nor the tenants had any knowledge of
the occurence. The room beyond the
doork, which proved to be a large
double iron safe door, was a cement
vault with shelves here and there but
nothing of value was discovered.
