Report That British Aviator Perman-
ently Missing Is Doubted
By Fliers
Drouch, Eng. July 17.-Flying from
Croyden, this morning, the American
aviators on their round the world)
cruise, reached here and prepared to
content themselves while their planes
were being overhauled for the lasti
stages of their air voyage.
A mixed force of mechanics began
to take down the engine, for the In-
stallation of new engines. The first
inspection of the braces, stays, bolts
and other parts, showed that the
planes were in splendid condition de-
spite their 18,000 mile flight, there-
fore, the work of over hauling will
be measurably less than at first
One remarkable feature was the fact
that the original varnish was still in
first class condition, while the French
and British planes were forced to
revarnish before they had covered the
same distance.
The hopes of an early flight from
Kirkwall are raised by the news that
the destroyers and other available
vessels will be distributed all along
the route from the Orkneys to Ind
harbour, making the transfer of sup-
plies which have not yet reached
Greenland an easy matter, and provid-'
ing for a quick change of plans it
necessary. The air men have also
learned That Locetelli, the Italian avi-
ator who will cover the same route
has been granted permission to use
the surplus American supplies.
Allsix men are anxious to get
started to get on the Atlantic flight
and are greatly heartened over the
work concerning the destroyers. In
the mean time they are receiving
every courtesy at the hands of the
British officials,
There was a report current here
that the British aviator, Lt. MacLar-
en had been lost after having been
missing in the far east for more than
36 hours. Lieut. Lowell Smith on
hearing the report said he had never,
doubted for a minute that the British
flier was safe. He explained that he
had a long distance flight and probab-
ly halted at intermediate places for
gas and oil.
There was no confirmation on the
report that MacLaren had landed1
Dances are being held every Fri-
day evening at the Union during the
summer months. The big ball room,
said to have the best dance floor in
Ann Arbor, is being used and Wil-
liam Wilkens', '25L, president of the
Union, announced that the regular
Union orchestra will play throughout
the summer.
An additional feature of the dances,
which has proven popular in the past,

is the fact that the tap room will be
open to women during the evening.
Prof Thomas E. Rankin, of the
rhetoric department and his family
will leave today for a trip through
Madison, Cleveland, and Canton, Ohio.
Professor Rankin will return to Ann
Arbor Sunday. His family will re-
main there for a week.

Says Half of Poor Country Whites in
Southern United States Are
"Child labor in the south, from a
strictly humanitarian and medical4
standpoint, is the greatest of bless-1
ings,' affirmed Dr. Charles W. Stiles
of the U. S. Public Health service,
Thursday afternoon, in his discussion
of "Hookworm Disease," in Natural
Science auditorium.
Human excreta carries disease of]
various kinds and in the south, where
proper sanitation has not yet been ef-
fected, the danger is very great. It is
sometimes used for fertilizer and as
the plants grow, they take up the bac-
teria. Then they are found on veg-
etables, and it is not wise to plant
foods in such a field, that are not eat-
en raw, for at least two years.
The female hookworm lays numer-'
ous eggs in the human intestines.
These cannot develop there, but on
expulsion, they develop into the in-
,itial stage where barefoot children
are liable to infection. The path of
the worm is through the skin into the
blood, to the heart and lungs and
through the trachae and esophagus
to the small intestines.
One half of the poor country whites
in the south are infected. The dis-
ease itself does not always cause
death, but breaks down resistance so
that the death rate is very high.
Alcholoism is one of the results of
hookworm disease. Families so in-
fected, have been known to spend a
thousand dollars for so-called "patent
medicines," when they might be cured
at a total cost of 50 cents apiece, aft-
er the proper diagnosis 'has been
made. Another result of the disease
is ulcers on the limbs of the individ-
The range of hookworm is the trop-
ical and sub-tropical regions. The
negro, however, is not affected as
severely as the white. Southern child-
ren of the cotton mills, show a decid-
edly better health average than those
of the sand and hill regions.

Fresh Honors
Accumulated By'
Dr. Tom Lovell
A letter purporting to come from
the president of one of the big movie
corporations has been received by
one of the more famous of Ann Arbr's
citizens. The proud recipient of this
honor is Dr. Tom Lovell, the possess-
or of more honorary degrees than any
one else in the university city, where
degrees abound.
The following letter, dated from
New York city and addressed to the
owner of the movie theater of an ad-
jacent town was received recently:
Dear Sir:
Yours of the 10th received, and at
a meeting of the heads of the motion
picture industry, favorable action was
taken upon your petition. Upon look-
ing into the qualifications of your can-
didate we find them highly satisfact-
ory. I may say among the highest we
have ever received. We are, as you
doubtless know, conferring but few
of these degrees, and I am proud to
state that Dr. Tom. Lovell is at the
head of the list of those receiving the
degree of Doctor of the Cinema
(D.C.), and that this will serve in lieu
of formal notification.
I hope this will meet all demands,
and that the good work of this great
educator will continue.
This distinctivehonor adds but one
more to the laurels already received,
by this famous resident of Ann Ar-
bor. May his glory increase

Yellow Dog's
Bark Again To
Be Heard Here
The Yellow Dog, that barked be-
fore the building of the pyramids,
has gone into his summer kennel in
Ann Arbor. Not that he has retired.
Nor that he will diminish his vocal
operations for the time being. Rather
he threatens to give a mighty yelp
tha will be heard in the 26 counties
where hie has his abodes.
Some years ago the pup came here.
He was first seen in and about Tap-
pan Hall, and evidently became the
mascot of summer students there who
induced him to stay. For his pro-
tection the educators organized. At
presnt their successors are resolved
to join them.
Only school men are admitted to the
club, which includes men prominent
in education in its branch organiz-
ationis over the country. The dog
was selected as the mascot because of
his faithfulness In asociation with
,men; his color simhply gave him the
common touch. There is a general
feeling that men in the teaching pro-
fession cannot really succeed without
the sanction of the dog.
Every summer a few chosen men
are added to the group about the
kennel. Beforetthey can be admitted
they must go and scratch on its
door. The prospective pups are al-
ready preparing for the advance;
needless to say, the old dogs will be
ready with a reception.

Development of Transportation Phase
Of National History Little
"Development in American Trans-
portation" was the subject of the lec-
ture given by Prof. Henry 1 Rigge, of
the civil engineering depar mcnii, yes-
terday afternoon at o'clock in the
Natural Science auditorium.
"The deveiopment of American
transportation is a phase of the his-
tory of this nation which is little em-
phasised," said Professor Riggs. He
stressed the fact that transportation
forms one of our most important in-
dustries. Our great cities are depend-
ent on transportation facilities, as are
also the mining and agricultural dis-
tricts. Pr(,fe ;si' Iiiggs taced the
different stages of transportation up
to the present time vhen the beauti-
ful buildings and bridges stand as
monuments throughout the country.
The engineering work accomplished
during the last half century is rnir-
aculous, and although beauty and
safety mark the achievements, utility
and economy have been gained also.
Professor Riggs showed the import-
ance of the railroads in the develop-
ment of the great inland cities, and
the way in which they had in 50 years
turned a wilderness into one of the
greatest of producing territories. The
railroad evils of some years ago --over
capitalization, excessive rates and
stock watering, have been practically
eliminated by the regulation of the
Interstate Commerce commission. The
magnitude of the industry now can be
judged by the 250,000 miles of track
operating successfully, and the 2,000,-
000 men employed by the railroads.

Leaders in the Lafollette for president
movement will begin a series of con-
ferences here tomorrow which are ex-
pected to result not only in the sel-

The National committee of the con-
ference for progressive action which
indorsed Senator LaFollette's indep-
endent candidacy at his Cleveland
convention will meet to name his run-
