Summer Session excursion number
four, visiting the Ford industries at
Fordson, will leave from in front of
Angell -Hall Wednesday, July 11, at
1:15 p. m. The size of the party will
be limited and tickets must be secured
at room 8, University Hall before 6

Under the direction of special plant
guides the party will visit the body
plant, power plant, coke ovens, elec-
tric furnaces, Fordseu and new Ford
assembly lines, and the foundry, the
largest in the world. The trip will
include much of the $75,000,000 worth
of new machinery which has been
added to the plants at Fordson dur-
ing the last year.
Ford's plants at Fordson stretch
out for a mile and a quarter in length
and cover 1,100 acres. The plants
are primarily for the conversion of
raw materials. Iron ore, limestone and
lumber are hauled to the company
docks by Ford's own ships. The coke
ovens, the blast furnaces, the steel
plant, with rolling mill and open
hearth furnaces, the by-products
plant, the electric furnaces, the ce-
ment plant, the glass factory and the
paper mill deal with raw materials in
their crude state.
Power plants are said to be one of
Henry's Ford's hobbies and the build-
ing program calls for eight turbo-
generators each with a capacity of
62,500 horsepower. The plant is so
scientifically built that although each
boiler burns about one hundred tons
of coal daily, yet there is a negligible
amount of ash and no smoke at all.
Students taking the trip will see
the extreme specialization worked out
in all of Ford's industries an'd the re-
sulting decrease in waste tabor ana
energy. The particular thing each
workman does comes to him on a con-
veyor system, instead of his going to
different parts of the plant. The as-

Miss Bragg, Prof. Barbara Bartlett,,
Miss Jean, Dr. Buck, Hoad, And
Woodhead Are Speakers
Bringing to a close the third Public
Health Institute, lectures were given
by six specialists in the field yester-
day in the West Medical building.
Many doctors, nurses, teachers, ai7
others interested in school and pa.
lic health problems were present. The
work will continue next week-ei:
when the fourth of the series of 1
stitutes begins at nine o'clock on Fri-.
day morning.
The first speaker yesterday was
Miss Mabel C. Bragg, Assistant sup-
erintendent of schools at Newton
Mass., who talked on "Health Teach-
ing and Supervision in Schools." Miss
Bragg has had long experience in t
educational field, and wad able to give.
many ilustrations from acti.-a expe.
ence of the questions she discussed.
She took a very optimistic attitude-'
toward the future of heain work, in
schools, declaring that progress was
being effected in all branches. Pro.
Barbara Bartlett of the Medical scb.
lectured at ten o'clock on "Principles'
and Practices of Public Health Nur-
sing." Miss Bartlett, who is an au-
thority on public health nursing,
gave a comprehensive ourne of this
phase of the health program, and;
pointed out the trend it was taking.
The next speaker on the program was
Dr. Carl Buck, epidemiologist of the
Detroit department of health, and the
subject of his lecturo was "Problems
of Public Health Administration."
Dr. Buck said, "The work of the health
departments in large cities is rapidly
becoming more thorough, more pur-
poseful, and more definite than it has
been at any time in the past. They
are casting aside the unimportant
phases of the work, and concent-rating
on those that will result in the most'
good to the people of the various com-

Professor Hugo Junkers, just back

o'clock sharp, or whenever the aud-
ience arrives, at which time he will
deliver a scientific address on some
pertinent and important question, the
exact nature of which he refuses to
divulge until he take's the platform
tonight. Clippy stadium is that col-
lection of cement benches which sur-
round the fountain /at the north end

editor of Toasted Rolls, a year and
a half ago and would have been ded-

After the address this evening' Doc-
tor Lovell promises to render a few
vocal selections .of his own composi-
tion. These songs are rated by some
among the clearest gems of Ameri-
can literature; others, of course, rate
them lower and many don't rate them
at all-but then critics must disagree.
During the last decade or so Doc-
tor Lovell has been intensely inter-
ested in research in the perplexingl
problem of the "Hen and Egg" ques-
tion whether birds come from bird
seed or not. At last, the worthy sa-,
vant state's, he believes himself to
have arrived at the correct solution.
Last fall he made the discovery once

before but through an error of some
reporter his discovery was written
under the head of "Ham and Egg"
question, the brilliant reasoning of
Ann Arbor's "genial philosopher" was
lost to the scientific world who could
see nothing of scholastic value in
Ham and Eggs.
Several times Doctor Lovell 'nat-
rowly missed being appointed Pres-
ident of the University of Michigan,
but each time the Regents lost his ap-
plication. However, the students of
the last ten years have not been slow
in recognizing his sterling merits for

philosopher. Among his many de-
grees are: S. O. S. (Society of Scrib-
es), A. W. 0. L. (American Writer
of Literature), C. O. D. (Chancellor
of Diction), and P. D. Q. (Profes'sor
of Dual Quenology). During the war
he was commissioned by the "Fight-
ing" S. A. T. C. as Colonel of Archery
in the United States Army. His high-
est foreign 'rank is A. Q. O. N. (Ad-
miral of the Queen's Own Navy), but
his treasured degree is that of T. N. T.
(Thinker oif New Thoughts). Much
could be said regarding Dr. Lovell's
illustrious, career as a cobbler, .poet,
prpacher, politician, singer, writer of
free verse, prophet, journalist, ora-
tor, professor, and would-be Univer-
sity president, but suffice it to say
that all have a chance to near him

Michigan Student
Saves Girl's Life
According to word received yester-
day- from Rochester, New York, Rob-
ert S. Chamberlin, '31, of that city
performed a commendable act of serv-
ice when he saved the life of a six-
year-old girl, Jean Wallace, at Wind-
sor beach near White City, New York.
The child was discovered floating face
downward In shallow water. Cham-
berlin carried her to shore and began
to administer artificial respiration. By
the time the inhalator crew arrived
she had regained consciousness, and
according to physicians only Cham-
be'rlin's promptness saved her life.
Life memberships for Seniors in
the Women's League were raised
on July 1 to $50 but a custom-
ary ten -days grace will be allow-
ed, so that life memberships can
be secured until July 10 for $40. A
women in the University may have
their life memberships in the League,
for $40 if this is paid before they
graduate. The amount of money
which they pay will be in part deter-
mined by the amount already paid
with the tuition, $10 each year. Fresh-
men automatically become members
at the completion of their four years.
Registrar Ira M. Smith left yes-
terday morning ,for Minneapolis,
Minnesota, where he will. attend the

istrators. The convention will ex-

Veiehigan Men Are National Cham-
pions In Heavy And Lightweight
Two University of Michigan stu-
dents will represent the United State
wrestling team in the Olympics at
Amsterdam this month. Ed George,
heavyweight, and Robert Hewitt, light-
weight, are the two Wolverines who
earned the right to represent America
in the impending Olympics by virtue
of their victories over all opponent
in the National A. A. U. meet and
01ympic trials, which were conclud-
Pd at Grand Rapids yesterday.
George and Hewitt left yesterda,'

Both will sail on the U. S. S. Rose-
velt which has been chartered to carry
the entire contingent of American
athletes across the Atlantic.
The crowning of George as heavy-
weight champion of the United States
and America's representative in that
division in the Olympics was one of
features of the Grand Rapids meet.
George is normally a middleweight
wrestler, but when he weighed in be-
fore the meet officials he was found
to be too heavy to compete in that
division. Undismayed by the unex-
nected overweight, George entered the
heavyweight. division of which he wa
eventually crowned champion.
In winning the heavyweight title
and the Olympic berth, the Wolverin'
had t'o defeat Harry Steele, Olymr
champion in 1924, in thej semi-finals
and Flanders, Oklahoma A. & M.
star, in the finals. The first bout be-
tween George and Flanders resulted
in a draw, but George won the ove

DeHart Hubbard, '25, was beatenj
yesterday at the final Olympic try-

in defeat he was forced to witness
