Surveying, which has always been
a required course for civil engineers,
is an elective for the first time this
year and for this reason enrollment
has been considerably depleted, ac-
cording to George M. Bleekman, in-
structor in surveying. Those who are
attending the camp live in steel
shacks ,and enjoy comforts which
compare well with urban accommoda-
tions. Camp Davis is situated on
Douglas Lake, near Cheboygan, and I

an automobile which is used for trans-
porting students in case of sickness,
injury or any other emergency. To
make the camp completely modern a
radio set was obtained the last year.
The camp supports a paper, the
Black Fly. The officers of the camp
are selected when the students reach

necessarily professional in nature,

ucation and membefs of the faculty of
the School of Education will be held
at 4 o'clock this afternoon in the au-
ditorium of the University high school.
IDean Allen S, Whitney of the School
of Education will be the principal
speaker on the program, and will
welcome the new students. As has
been the custom in former educational
meetings of this kind, every new pro-
fessor on the education faculty will
be called upon for a short talk.
A large number of prominent men
in the educational field have been se-
sured to teach on the summer faculty
of that school and these men are ex-
pected to have something of interest
to say to students. Among the men
who are teaching educational subjects1
here this summer for the first time;
are Professors Willett, of Illinois,a
Irion, Natt, Schorling of the Univer-N

Tomorrow evening the Men's Edu-

more than 125 each time.

is the one beautiful weak spot in us
all, as we cannot see human suffering
without being moved to action," said
Miss Elba Morse, field representative
of the American Red Cross in a lec-
ture yesterday afternoon in Natural
Science. auditorium. Miss Morse as-
serted that to relieve the suffering
and bring aid to the sufferers is the
aim of the organization.
"President Coolidge has said that
the Red Cross is the. only force which
actually seeks out trouble with rem-
edial efforts," said the speaker. The
Murphysboro disaster in Illinois was
used by Miss Morse as an illustration
of the Red Cross relief work. "There
were two periods to the disaster from.
our standpoint," she said. "One was
the emergency period which lasted
from two days to several weeks, and
the other, the re-habilitation period
which lasts two months or more."
The, Red Cross has an arrangement
with newspapers and the Western Un
ion for immediate notification of any
disaster. Three main stations are at
Washington, D. C., St. Louis, Mo., and
San Francisco, Calif. As soon as a re-
port is sent to any one of these sta-
tions a relief train is sent out. At
2:30 in the afternoon, late in Feb-
ruary, the Murphysboro disaster oc-
curred. By 3 o'clock the first notice
had been received at St. Louis, and a
Red Cross train was sent out.
At the end of 24 hours 15 em-
ergency hispitals had been filled, 400
nurses had responded, and the relief
work was well started. Withib two
days a well established canteen was
placed in the center of the town to
feed the injured, 17 Pullman cars had
been sent down to take care of the
suffers who could not be accommo-
dated at the hospitals, Red Cross tents
had been set up to shelter the home-
less, clothing had been provided, and
transportation accommodations ar-
ranged for those who wanted to leave
the city.
"A better appreciation of what the
Red Cross is doing is necessary to
further their work. The Red Cross
is there to serve but it is also up to
the public to respond at the time of
an emergency," said Miss Morse in3

Many advanced students are enroll-
. ed at the University School of Music
Summer session coming from prac-
tically every state in the Union.
This year special emphasis has been
placed upon the Summer session by
the authorities of the school and com-
prehensive courses in all branches of
music have been provided. A faculty
of distinction has been retained for
l he summer monthsk Theodore Har-
rison, head of the voice department,
has attracted many professional mus-
icians, directors, heads of department
and teachers who are assembled for
special study. A similar situation ex-
ists in the piano, organ, and violin
departments, under Mrs. George B.
Rhead, Palmer Christian, and Anthony
J. Whitmire. Of special interest is
the work in public school music where
two nationally known authorities are
in charge, Joseph E. Maddy, recogniz-
ed throughout the land in the field
of instrumental methods, and Mr. T.,.
P. Gidding, supervisor of music in the
schools of Minneapolis, who is recog
nized as a similar authority in the
field of vocal and piano methods. Ar-
rangements have also been made for
the needs of the regular student who
desire to continue study during the
summer months.
A special feature will be the annual
series of summer concerts by the
School of Music faculty in Hill audi-
torium. The program on Wednes-
day of this week will be given by
Mrs. George ,B. Rhead, pianist, and
Barre Hill, baritone, an especially
talented student of Theodore Harri-
son, who has won considerable dis-
tinction throughout the state. He also
participated in one of the minor roles
in the May Festival where he also at-
tracted great attention. The general
public is invited to attend these con-

Railroads Expect
Increased Traffic


Railroad freight traffic in 1925
probably will pass all previous rec-
ords, according to a report made at
the recent meeting of the American
Railway association at Chicago. Car
loadings for this year are estimated
at 50,494,570 cars, an increase of 682,-
450 cars over the previous record, set
in 1923.
Business for January and February
showed an increase over the same
periods in 1923 and 1924, and it is
expected that there will be heavy
loading in September and October.
By photograhping the stars from

"Zenith Tube" is said to indicate the
distance the land slips each year.

Washington, D. C., June 23.-The
first definite step, looking to a tax
reduction of three hundred million
dollars by the next Congress, was tak-
en today at a conference between
Chairman Green of the House ways
and means committee, and Secretary.
Mellon and Under Secretary Winston,
of the treasury.
Mr. Green and the treasury officials
were understood to have . been in
agreement as to the general principles
of an administration program. The
committee chairman maintained his
opposition to the repeal of the state
taxes, favored by the administration,
but was said to have little other
ground for differences of the propos-
al to lighten the burden'of the peo-
ple, by the cut of about the same pro-
portions as was involved in the last
tax revision.
