Final Cleaning Work Is Commenced;
On New Building; Few Odd ]
Jobs Remain
Final work on the New University1
Hospital is being finished up, and willa
enable the full operation of the in-
stitution within another month ac-
cording to Edward Warren, construe-l
tion engineer. The house cleaning
partment of the old University hospi-f
tal has started the final cleaning up!
of the whole buldng, although there
still remain a few odd jobs which may
be finished up at any time.
The hospital is furnished through-
out with the very latest and most effic-
ient equipment. There are not only
the regular wards, surgical rooms,
and laboratories, but also an ice-man-
ufacturing plant, a large store room,
bakery, complete kitchen - facilities,
and special research'laboratories for
medical students as well as a special
section ,devoted to examination rooms
for out patients.
The sub-basement of the hospital is
entirely devoted to an ice manufactur-
ing plant where the ice used in the
kitchens and for immediate purposes
is manufactui'ed. No ice, however,I
is used for refrigeration as a brte
system is installed which cools all
refrigerators and cold rooms through-
out the building.. A large ice cream
freezer is located here here the ice
cream used in the hospital is made.
Opening on the supply court is a
storeroom where all staple stores are
kept, and is a complete hardware
store in itself.
In the basement ahd on the ground
floor are the main " kitchens, staff
dining rooms,. nurses' cafeteria, nurs-
es' assembly hall, and rest rooms for
the kitchen help including a cafeteria.
The first floor is given over to execu-
tive offices, examining rooms for in-
coming patients, besides 21 examin-
ing offices for outside patients. The
X-Ray laboratory is also on this floor
besides the microscopic testing lab-
oratory. No part of the building be-
low the second floor takes care of
any of the patients, there being no
beds below the second floor,
, The fourth, fifth,- and sixth floors,
which are entirely completed, are de-
voted to the wards and operating
rooms as well as 93 private rooms.
There are several operating rooms
equipped with the most modern facili-
ties for operatng, with sterilizing ma-
chines adjoining them. Galleries are
provided for doctors and internes who
are to watch the operations. A
unique feature of the hospital is an
amphitheatre located in the basement
where autopsies are demonstrated to
interues and students from the Mei
cal school.
e Another feature of the building i
- its five psychopathic rooms which are
l made in such a way that, no sound
s can escape and all fixtures in th
room are made flush with the wal
a so that in the case of particularl
bad cases the patients can do no harm
" either to themselves nor disturb othe
n patients in the hospital. All surgica
; rooms are constructed with cousti

duced in numbers, there was little
room for graceful motion. But the
drama itself commanded attention-
not the individual players.
There were undoubtedly many .in
the audience whose acquaintance with
the Greek drama was limited,and for
those, the play lost much of its charm.
With one word lost, the theme was1
lost, and stark tragedy changed to
boring speech. With the arrival of
the messenger to tell Kreon of the
burial of Eteokles, there were re-
marks in my vicinity which boded
no good for the actor-he was awk-
ward, folk said,' forgetting, or not
knowing, that messengers were held I
up to ridicule by the Greek drama-
tists, and that the actor filled his
part with unusually good interpreta-
The presentation gave me a new
view into the character of Antigone.
Throughout her words in her last
scene with Ismene ,her sister, I have
always pictured her in reading as
stony hearted, wholly without a re-
lenting thought, but in Mrs. Sherry's
interpretation I saw a more feminine,
a more womanly character-but at the
point of breakdown, with the knowl-
edge of irrevocable fate, I could not
help feeling that the grief shown was
too intense.t
But the company is to be congratu-
lated. They have brought to Annf
Arbor what Ann Arbor has failed to
bring to itself in many years-a pre-
sentation of the Greek drama. Per-
haps even the greater part of the
audience enjoyed the performance
from.a sense of duty, but there were
those whose joy at the opportunity<
placed them in that receptive frame
of mind which whole heartedly and
gladly welcomed the group and its

Various Gifts to Regents in '
Filing of the will of Levi L. Bar-
bour, '63-'65L ,former Regent of the
University, who died recently, shows
that various gifts to the University
are to be included in the distributiop
of his estate.
The Board of Regents are given his
library and furnitur. nis home on
Eliot street, and property on Elizabeth
street. It is stipulated that the fur-
niture be placed in Betsy Barbour
house, and suggested that the Eliot
street property be used as a home for
the Prismatic and Acanthus clubs.
The Elizabeth street real estate is to
be used for the benefit of the Oriental
girls' scholarship fund.
Other distribution of the estate
said to be -valued at $90,000, includes
$45,000 to relatives, small amounts to
several employees of his office, and
$25,000 to Frank Martin, a firm mem-
ber. An amount of $20,000is left the
City of Detroit for a memorial on

Fred A. Martin, William P. Holli-
day, Bryant Walker, and Harry B.
Hutchins are named executors of the

estate. Each is to rceeive $5,000 for
his work in connection with the es-
tate, the will specifies.

Brief Session Marked by Stormiest
Hour of Trial; Early End
i -(By The associated Press)
Dayton, Tenn., July 17.-The brief-
est session of the court trying the
Scopes case today brought the storm-
iest hour of the trial and forecasts an
early end of the Scopes evolution
case. Judge John T. Ralston by ex-
cluding the proposed testimony from
an array of scientists, shortened the'
trial by days. The court decision
arose the ire of attorney's for the de-I
fense, sharp wards being directed at
the court soon after he had read his!
Thus with their experts prevented
from taking the witness stand the de-
fense has placed affidavits in the rec-
ords setting fprward what the zoolog-
ists, biologists, pathologists, and oth-
ers would have said had they been
allowed to speak. To permit the pre-
paration of these statements adjourn-
ment was ordered utnil Monday morn-
The defense was not expected to of-
fer other witnesses and after filing of
the scientific statements, arguments.

Two Years Ago New York Saw Re.
vival of Comedy First Produced
in 184
"Fashion" by Anna Cora Mowatt
will be presented'- by the Wisconsin
Players at 8:15 o'clock tonight in.Uni-
versity hall auditorium. This play is
given as a typical example of the old
formal comedy. It was first produced
in Philadelphia in 1845, and was re-
ceived with -great enthusiasm. Two
years ago it was revived in'New York
by the Theater, Guild, and was receiv-
ed with equal . enthusiasm showing
that good comedy is always appre-
The play is a satire on the foibles
of fashionable life in New York of
the earlier half of the 19th century
and we find its pretentious and vul-
garities have not changed much to
this day.
The play is given in the stilted ar-
tificial manner of the period, with
many asides to the audiences, and
all the artifices that make one realize
how much the stage has progressed
since "Fashion" was written.
The play deals with the vicissitudes
of the Tiffany family, who rose from a
millinery shop and a peddler's pack
to leadership of the New York "Bram
mode"; and the character of Mrs. Tif-
fany is perhaps only surpassed by the
immortal Mrs. Malaprop, as a scream-
ingly funny part.' In fact, all of the
parts are rarely funny, without a sug-
gestion of salaciousness, showing that
good comedy need not be shady to be
