PROBLEM OF BUBONICI
PLAGUE IS DESCRIBED
BY DR' W._DOORENBOS
"BACTERIOPHAGE AND BUBONIC
PLAGUE" I$ SUBJECT OF
WORLD AUTHORITY
SLIDES SHOW CONDITIONS
Speaker Tells Of Work Of Quarantine
Board In Keeping Diseases Of
Orient From Europe ,
While the Bacteriophage has a
tendency to produce resistence to the
Bubonic Pliague, yet it is highly pos-
sible that some method of immunizing
rats will have to be found before it
will be possible to prevent the de-
vastating plagues that sweep the
oriental countries," said Dr. W. Door-
enbos, Chief of the Bacteriological
Service of the International Quaran-
tine Board of Egypt, at the Suez, in
his lecture "Experiences with the
Bacterlosphage and Bubonic Plague in,
Java and the Suez," delivered at the
Natural Science auditorium Tuesdiay
afternoon.
Dr. Doo'renbos illustrated his lec-
ture with a number of slides depicting
the various kinds of dwellings, found
in Egypt and showing how different
types are more conducive to the
spread of a pleague epidemic than
are others. He stated that those
dwellings made of mud or itone and
using the earth for a floor. are in-
fested with rats that live in the walls
and carry the Bubonic Plague baccilli.
People living on the ground floor are
In a more dangerous position than
those living ustairs, investigations
show.
Fleas Spread Disease
While man may contract the dift-
ease from actual contact with an in-
fected pat, the most common cause
for the spread of an epidemic is by
fleas. These feed on the rats and then
bite human beings.
"One of the difficulties of control is
caused by the fact that there are sev-
eral types of fleas," said Dr. Dooren-
bos. "Some carry the disease only
between rats, while others carry it
from rats to man. Still another typ-
carries the germs between human be-
ings. The experiments have neces-
sarily included all types."
When asked how he kept from be-
ing bitten by the fleas himself, Dr.
Doorenbos explained that in the day-
time he protected himself as well as!
possible by puttees and gloves. At
night a lighted lamp was placed in a
shallow dish .containing liquid and i
the morning the dish contained sev-
eral hundred dead fleas. "Of course,"
he said, "sometimes I was bitten,"
and he gave the impression that then
it was a matter of. luck not to contract
the disease.
No General Prevention
Stating that it was impossible tr
give any general rule for the preven-
tion of the plague, the famous author-
ity went on to explain this was due
to the fact that conditions in different
towns comparatively close together
were so widely variant. "Even a
change in, temperature," he said,
"may stop an epidemic, and experi-
ments show that after a time the rats!
may become immune and thus the
plague will die down."
"The purpose of the Quarantine
'Board," said Dr. 'Doorenbos, when

asked to explain it, "is to prevent the
spread into Europe of the various
oriental diseases. These come through
the Suez Canal by boat and. strict
precaution have to be taken to pre-
vent the spread to other countries,"
WOMEN OFFERED
CLASSES IN GOLF
Under the direction of Miss McCor-
rnck, the. University is offering wo-
men's golf classes for the students ;n
the summer session.
For the first two weeks, the class-
es, which meet at 2 and 3 o'clock
every afternoon, will play at Palmer
Field, after which time they will be,
transferred to the University Golf
Course. Mr. Clark, who has charge of
the course, has offered an added con-
venience by making a special fee of
$3 to those students enrolled in the
classes.

OFFICE TO OPEN
IN DETROIT SOON
Rapid growth of work of the Uni-
versity Extension Division in Detroit
has necessitated the opening of an
office there, with the result that a
su'mmer office is to be opened in
room 562 Cass Technical High School,
according to Charles A. Fi'sher, assist-
ant director.
Inquiries have increased and the
lively interest shown by large busi-
ness organizations, together with de-
sire for information of the numerous
groups interested in adult education,
have brought about the opening of
the office, Mr. Risher states.
The office will give general infor-
mation concerning the Upiversty,
and will provide those interested with
enirollment blanks, information re-
lative to entrance requirements and
render other services. It is to be
opened at once and will remain open
throughout July and August.

RECORDS FALL IN
OLYMPIC TRIALS
(By Associated Press)
PHILADELPHIA, July 3-To the

tune of two new world's records, per-
formers in the final tryouts for places
on the Olympic team, got away to a
flying start at Philadelphia's New Mu-
nicipal Stadium today.
Within a single eventful period of
five minutes, F. Morgan Taylor, I111-
nois Athletic Club, Olympic Champ-
ion and Frank Cuhel, of the Univer-
sity of Iowa, cracked the world's re-
cord in winning their semi-final heats
in the 400 meter hurdles. Taylor beat
the standard set at 53:3-4 seconds by
Szen Pettersson, of Sweden in 1925,
by one fifth of a second and Cuhel in
a heat a few minutes later knocked
one fifth of a second off the time the
blonde Illinois flyer had set.
On his way to his new record Tay-
lor gained sweet victory over one of
his leading rivals, Stocky Johnnie
Gibson, of the Bloomfield, New Jersey,
Catholic Lyceum, who beat him in
winning the National 440 hurdle
championship.

UN ITALIAN PAINILSH
OF RENAISSANCE AGE

WORK OF FRA ANGELICO
FRA FILIPPO LIPPI
DESCRIBED

AND1

CHARACTERIZES PERIOD
Represents Mingling Of Spiritual And
Material Elements By Two
Typical Men
Characterizing the Renaissance a
a period intricate in the extreme and
marked by' violent contrasts,' Mi'ss
Adelaide A. Adams, of .the departmentI
of fine arts, speaking yesterday after-
noon in Natural Science auditorium
on "Renaissance Italian Painting,"
pointed outs three outstanding ele-
ments in Renaissance culture: the
spiritual element, which derived from
the Middle Age's and was therefore
conservative rather than progressiv
the intellectual element, shown by
scientific and technical progress; sand
the physical or material element,
which fostered the reawakened inter.
est in the beauty of man and of naf
ture.
Miss Adams selected two pain'
Fra Angelico and FN Filippo ?
both of whom were monks living i'
Florence in the early fifteenth cen-
tury and who had the same patron,
Cosimo dei Medici, but whose lives
and works were completely different
to typify two of these three main cur
rents in art.
Describes Fra Angelico
"Vra Angelico;" Said Miss Adams
"was 'a Dominican friar who wen,
with his fellow-monks into exile for
fifteen years in the hill-country of
Umbria, the part of Italy where the
people display the greatest religious
ecstasy and enthusiasm. Here doubt
less his natural ,pure devotion was in-
tensified to the lofty spirituality that
shines forth in his paintings.
"Fra Filippo Lippi, on the other
band, was the son of a butcher;
was left an orphan at an early ag
and roamed the streets of the poo
quarter of Florence until ado'pted
the age of 8 by the Carmelite order.
He was brought up to be a priest, bu
the monkish habit was hardly con
gruous with his love for the world
his warm interest in humanity, a
when he later eloped with a nun, th
beautiful Lucrezia Buti, the Pope
recognizing his genius, released th'
trom their vows and permitted then
to marry."~
Ilustrates With Slides
Miss Adams went on to show by
means of slides the characteristics
of the work of the two men. The
"Madonna and Child" of Angelico wa
highly imaginative, distinguished by
softness and purity of tone, while the
painting by Lippo Lippi on the san
subject wa's radically different: Mary
was a Florentine maiden, the infan'
Jesus a husky baby, and the angels
typical gutter-snipes with wings at-
tached. "Fra 'Lippo Lippi's art, said
Miss Adams, "is notable for its em-
phasis on common figures rather than
on religious ones; it verges on the
genre painting of the Dutch school."
Fra 'Lippo's "Coronation of the
Virgin" was characterized in the
words of Professori Mather of Prince-
ton as -very like " a scene at the con-
mencement of a young ladies' aca-
demy, with God the Father giving the
honor diploma to Mary, and the angels
the other Sweet girl graduates waiting
their turn."j
HAWLEY TO TALK
ON' HOME HEATING
"Heating the Home" will be the
title of a lecture by Prof. Ransom S.
Hawley, professor of mechanical en-

gineering in the engineering school,
at 5 o'clock tomorrow in Natural
Science auditorium. Professor Haw-
ley has been doing research for some
years in the field of heating prob-
lems, and has given special attention
to the proper heating of a home.
Though the subject is perhaps not
strictly suited to the season, Profes-
sor Hawley is expected to have some
valuable information to impart. The
lecture will be illustrated.

BUT FIVE STUDENTS FAIL TO
SURVIVE TESTS TRIED ON
ALL GRADUATES
FIRST TIMEGIVEN HERE
Examination Was Test Of Judgment
And Ability To Think, Says
Dr. Cyrus C. Sturgis
But five students of the 210 who
wrote the comprehensive examination
given graduating medical students
failed to pass, it was stated today by
Dr. Cyrus, C. Sturgis, chairman of the
sub-committee which handled the
mechanics connected with the exam-
ination. And though this number is
surprisingly low, the fact that the ex-
amination was the first ever given
here being considered, it is believed
likely by Dr, Sturgis that in years to
come all students will pass the ex.
amination.
"The examination wasn't a pure test
.of memory, but rather a test of the
student's judgment and his ability to
think," stated Dr. Sturgis today. "Two
questions were given and four hours

t student's fitness to practice. Th*
men who failed will be allowed to
take the examination again, after the
expiration of six months.
"We don't want to let loose of them
until we're sure they kn'ow suffiolent
about medicine to practice it," de-
clared Dr. Sturgis. "The need of such
knowledge is evident, when it is con-
sidered that upon the judgment of
these men and women will hang hu-
man lives."
Dr. Sturgis pointed out that efforts
of the committee govring these
examinations will be directed toward
having those unfit to practic medi-
cine weeded out of the medical schol
during their first or second year of
registration. This may be accomplish-
ed, he explained, by more strict grad-
ing.
PLAYERS TO GIVE
FRANCE'S FARCE
OF MARITAL LIFE
Following their custom of giving
one Frnch comedy a season, the
Rockford players will open a series of
four performances of Anatole France's
farce, "The Man Who Married a Dumb
Wife" as their third bill tomorrow
night. The piece will be repeated
Friday night, and be given matinee
and evening performances Saturday.
Robert Henderson, director of the
company, promises an elaborate pro-
duction. Alice Hogan will collabor-
ate with the troupe in the dances for
which the comedy calls, while the
whole cast has been working, on the
chorus steps which come at the end
of each act.
France drew his material for the
play from Rabelais, and has written
the piece after the medieval manner.
The story deals with a judge who, as"
the title indicates, married a dum
woman. To his great joy a doctor
prpmises to cure her of her affliction,
and-succeeds. Then the wife talks so
much that the worthy judge wishes
her dumb once more. Katherine Wick'
Kelly will 'have the role of Cath-
erine, the wife, Henderson playing op-
posite her as Master Botal. Roman
Bohnen is cast as the doctor.
"So This Is London" will be given
its final performance by the players at
8:15 tonight.
