clinics of that state have grown so
fast that they have developed no stan-
dards and the committee of which hef
is a member is trying to work outt
standards for the clinics.
The people in this Public Health
School are doctors for the most part
although there are also others inter-
ested in public health, and they want
to know what is being done in other
places. Dr. Davis is able to give them
a comparative view because of his

There are two reasons why the deathl

of the death is discovered and-sec-
ond, the people are told how to rem-

to tuberculosis are given a diet by

Deans Leave On Vacation
Dean John R. Effinger, of the liter-
ary college, and Dean Alfred H.
Lloyd, of the Graduate school, and
his family left by motor today for
Lake Pieco in New York state,
where they will spend the remainder
of the summer. The two families have
gone to this lake, which is located in
the south-western part of the Adiron-
dacks, for several seasons.
Mrs. Effinger and her son will join
Dean Effinger at the close of summer
school, while Margaret Effinger will
come from a camp in New Hampshire
where she is a councillor. The Lloyds
and Effingers will return some time in
University, says that the camp is for
the purpose of giving the under-priv-
ileged boy a country vacation. "The
type of boy we get," said Professor
Menefee, "is the boy of the streets.
Quite often the boys come from the
detention homes, and the Mothers'
Pension bureau. More than 100 of
the boys who have been out there
already this year are from this bur-
northwest of Ann Arbor.
Judges of the probate courts in
Jackson, Flint, Detroit, and Ham-
tramck hold this camp out as a place
for city boys who are wayward
through lack of proper social condi-
tions. The boys in Hamtramck, who
are on parole, report to the judge
each week in the year. And about
the only question they ever ask is,
"What's my chances.of going to camp
this year?" It is the real, energetic
type who is always getting into
trouble, said Professor Menefee. And
what the camp tries to do is turn this
energy into the proper channels.
The success of the camp is demon-
strated partly by the fact that last
Tuesday, two boys started to walk to
Ann Arbor from Deroit, on their way
to camp. They arrived in Ann Ar-
bor late Tuesday evening. And they
would have walked the other 25 miles
to camp if they had had to in order
to reach their destination.
They have a swimming instructor
in camp, also a medical and engineer-
ing officer. All three of these men
are Michigan students. Bonetus, an
Indian chief, whose home is in the
Upper Peninsula, is teaching the boys
the art of handling a canoe, basket-
weaving, and Indiancraft.
The boys are busy from reveille in
the morning at 6:30 until taps at 9:30j
in the evening. There are setting-up
exercises, tent, inspection, and swim-
ming in the morning. Following
lunch, the boys go through the Boy

The speaker began by giving a few
general points of interest in regard
to the islands. There are over 7000
islands in the group, although but
comparatively few of them are inhab-
ited. He discussed the probable for-
mation of the archipeligo, suggesting
the theory that it was probably once
part of the continent of Asia which
had become detached from the main-
land through geologic disturbances.
He stated that though much the avail-
able land is under cultivation there is
still enough good agricultural land to
make the islands capable of support-
ing 17,000,000 people. Most of the
population are Christian, though there
is a small percentage divided among
a number of other minor religions.
Dean Kalaw next showed a number
of slides showing scenes in various
places on the islands. He said that
contrary to the popular notion Spain
early established an educational sys-
tem on the islands during her occu-
pation of them. At the present time,
he said, there are over 1,000,000 stu-
dents in the primary schools of the
islands and the higher educational
system is also being rapidly built
up. Baseball and other American
sports are very popular in the island
according to Dean Kalaw. A large
number of other different scenes of
roads, churches, and natural scenery.

"IF I WERE KING" IS
PRESENTED BY GROUP
Will Offer "Hamlet" And "A Doll's
House" This Afternoon
If I Were King" was presented last
night by Frank McEntee and company
from the Shakespeare playhouse of
New York. The play is a fantastical
romance dealing with the reign of
Louis XI, and the war with the Bur-
gundians. The limitations of num-
bers in the company made it a rath-
er difficult play to present satisfact-
orily, especially in the last scene
when the group was supposed to rep-
resent the large group of the pop-
ulace of Paris.
Elsie Hedron Kearns as Katherine
de Vaucelles gave a delightful inter-
pretation of the character. Her voice
is excellent, and herarticulation far
surpasses that of the other players.
It was very difficult at times to under-
stand the players. This is probably
due to the acoustics of University
hall. The place is not adapted to the
giving of plays and it must be diffi-
cult for the players to overcomethis.
The dramatic climaxes were given
with more skill and more force than
the rest of the performance.
As in the performance of "Beyond
the Horizon" the minor characters
stood out in their interpretations.
Thibaut d'Aussigny, Noel le Jolys, and
Guy Tabario, gave characterizations
of their small parts that were very
The setting, which were furnished
by silk curtains with a few pieces of
properties, were well chosen and the
necessity for further elaboration of
scenery was not apparent. The cos-
tumes were nicely picked and their
colors showed up well in the lights
that were used. This play is the sec-
ond of the plays given by the com-
pany. Hamlet will probably be the.

noon and "A Doll's House", by Ibsen
this evening, will complete the pro-
gram that the Shakespeare Playhouse
company under the direction of Frank
McEntee, have been giving. The plays
are given under the auspices of the
Mr. Frank McEntee was for many
years an actor with the original Ben
Greet players, taking part in no less
than 75 different Shakespearian roles
during his association with that com-
pany. Mr. McEntee has produced
special Shakespearian performances
with all-star casts attthe Fulton, Ply-
mouth,and Cort Theaters in New York
City. The New York Telegram said
of this performance "Hamlethwas a
remarkable performance for the his-
trionicrability shown by Frank Mc
Entee." "Frank McEntee, as Hamlet,
honored all the promises of his high
ability in Shakespearian roles,"ac-
cording to the Pittsburg Dispatch.
Ibsen's most popular play, "A
Doll's House" will be given in the
evening. The play permits of many
dramatic situations, and the story is
one of interest. This is the last of the
play to be presnted by the company
from the Shakespeare Playhouse.
This is the third year that these play-
ers have presented their talent to Ann
Arbor audiences, and that their work
is appreciated has been shown by the
