Oices of lintereollegiate Athletics
Departinenit Will be Moved to
Old Club house:
Intramural athletics department
will be given' room in the Yost field
house at the beginning of the fall
term in order to relieve the congest-
ed conditions in Waterman gymnas-
ium, according to action taken at a
meeting of the Board in Control of
Athletics held June 12.
The Intercollegiate athletics de-
partment has already given way be-
fore the Intramural department once
before. When conditions at the Wat-
erman gymnasium became too crowd-
ed, it was decided to move the In-
tercollegiate department to the Yost
field house which was then in the pro- I
ces of construction. This move gave
the entire gymnasium to the Intra-f
mural department, but the interest in
athletics has grown to such a great
extent that the Intramural officials
had to look around for room once
The eastern portion of the second
floor of the field house, where the In-
tercollegiate department now has of-
fices, will be taken over by the Intra-
mural dneartment. The lockers in
the club house at Ferry field will be
moved to the space vacated by the In-
tercollegiate department. Besides
these lockers, new lockers will be
purchased and installed.
By action of the board of control,i
the Intercollegiate department will
take up offices in the old club house.
The entire space will be used by the

Public health work has made good
up to a certain point in the past,
and that, according to Dr. W. A.
Evans, health editor of the Chicago'
Tribune, is a guarantee of the con-
tinuance of that work in the future.
Dr. Evans, who spoke last night in
the Natural Science auditorium, in
discussing "The Future of the Pub-
lic Health Worker,' is of the opin-
ion that in the complex social life
of the future there will be even
greater need of experienced workers
in this field.
Education should not be restricted
to the material that is presented in
classrooms, it should deal with the
larger problems of society, it should
refer to the things that change
men's lives and customs. The pur-
pose is not only to instruct but also
to interest.
Thereis a nation-wide, well
thought-out program 'of instruction
in public health work for children.
Children are pliable and - easily
trained and one of the great supports
of this future work is to come from
them. They have been brought up
to a realization and acceptance of
this phase of hygiene until it has
become a part of themselves, and
j they will encourage it in others.
Smith Disproves
Prevalent Rumor
Concerning Lake

"Niagara Falls has been of inter-I
est to people since as early as 1,700,1
when the Frenchman, La Salle, ex-
plored there," said Prof. E. R. Smith,'
of Indiana, who is teaching geology
at the University of Michigan thisj
The falls have been caused by the
Niagara limestone, under which is
the soft Niagara shale that is slowly
receeding. This recession, due to
grinding, is small, but is largely on
account of the under-mining of the
rocks. The tons of water which daily
pass over the falls in time wear away
the shale at the bottom, thus causing
the heavier rocks at the top to fall
into the Niagara river. -
Goat Island separates the falls into
what are called the American falls
and the Candian falls. Due to the po-
sition of Goat Island, 95 per cent of
the water which passes over the falls
rushes over the Candian falls while
the remaining five per cent passes
over the American falls. On account
of this vast difference, the former are

receeding about four times as fast
as the latter. An accumulation of
great rocks at the foot of the Amer-
ican falls is a secondary reason for
their smaller recession.
"What are the future of the falls?'
asked Professor Smith. "The glass is
slightly blurred as I look into it. If
the water were not being used for
power, the falls wouli disappear in
time due to recession,\as the rocks
dip upstream. The use of water-pow-
er cuts down this erosion."
In addition to the scenic beauty of
the falls and the commercial use to
which they are being put, there are
also several points of interest to man,
such as the Whirlpool rapids, the
Lewiston gorge, and Lake Algonquin,
which was formed by the pounding
back of the waters of the Great Lakes
and the recession of the ice after the t
last glacial period.
Professor Smith is conducting a
trip to the falls early in July. .iti

Whitmore Lake is safe for bathing
purposes. The rumor that has been
prevalent for some time concerning
the impurity of the lake water has
been disproved by Dr. N. H. Smith,
city chemist. A 48 hour analysis
meeting the specifications of the Am-
erican board of public health, of wat-
er taken from Whitmore Lake shows
it to be absolutely safe for bath-
ing purposes.
No evidence of contamination of any
kind could be found and there was no
pathological bacteria present. This
analysisindicates that Whitmore Lake
as far as the purity of the water is
concerned, is ideal for bathing.

Outdoor Drawing Class Independent-
ly Work With Pencil, Ink, Pastel,
and Water Color
The class in outdoor drawing and'
painting is being conducted this sum-
mer by Myron B. Chapin. Mr. Chapin
is taking the place of Mr. Slusser, whol
is in Europe for the summer. Mr..
Slusser was instrumental in organ-
izing the class several years ago and
it has always been very popular with
students interested in art.
Mr. Chapin is conducting his course
with the intention of meeting the
needs of everyone who is interested
in landscape work. He is following
the ideas of the modern French paint-
ers who believe in originality rather
than in imitation of the technique of
the old masters.
The students work independently
and are allowed to choose their own
subjects; to work in any medium such
as pencil, water-color, ink, charcoal,
or pastel; and they are encouraged to
cultivate an individual technique. The
product of each is then submitted
for general class discussion so that
they may profit by the mistakes and
progress of others. The work has
been limited to the campus so far but
soon it will be extended.
The many picturesque spots about
Ann Arbor will furnish material for
interesting compositions. When the
weather will not permit work in open,
they will work in the studio in the
Engineering building and paint from
costumed models. Members of the
class represent a strange mixture of
careers - the future architect, the
teacher, the botanist, and those in-
terested in it purely from the aesthe-
tic and cultural standpoint. The
class is still open for further enroll-

More Than Double Present Number o
Internes Will be Employed
in New Building
"The upper floors of the new Uni- g
versity hospital will be 'ready for pa- s
tients on July 1," stated Mr. John C. g
Christensen, assistant secretary of the
University, yesterday. This marks th
end of a long period of building, de- t
layed from time to time by lack of y
funds. e
It is also expected that work on b
the building itself, excepting minor a
details, will be completed next week. p
Equipment is arriving daily and all p'
electrical fixtures are at this time be- w
ing hung. Painters are doing the la:t I
work on the interior, and will be out
next week. The grounds have been c
graded and seeded. Walks have been w
laid around the various sections of t
the building and shrubbery planted. t
A walk is now being laid from the 1
hospital to the contagious ward, and 1
the driveways are being put into con-
dition for use.
When the entire building will be in
use, a total of 1,100 beds will be pro-
vided for patients coming to Ann Ar-
bor. The new hospital will contain
600 of them, the others being in the
present building and the homeopathic
hospital. Seventy internes, more than
double the present number, will be
Prof. T. H. Reed of the political
science department and Prof. D. L.
Rich of the physics department wil
lecture this afternoon and evening
respectively on the Summer session
program. Professor Reed speaks at
5 o'clock in the Natural Science au-
ditorium on "The Government of
Metropolitan Communities."
At 8 o'clock Professor Rich talks
in the West lecture room of the
Physics building on "The Measure-
ment and Elimination of Noise." Along
with his lecture Professor Rich will
make experimental demonstrations.
Many Summer session students took
" advantage of the first excursion yes-
terday afternoon and were taken on
a tour of the city in automobiles sup-
plied by the local Exchange club.
The trip included a part of the town's
residential district, the east and Cedar
f Bend boulevards, the Barton Hills
Country club, and the Barton Pond
- road. Mr. Carlton Wells of the rhe-
toric department was in charge.

At the close of the second day of
enrollment for the summer session
at the University of Illinois, 1,983 stu-
dents had registered.
