"Whatever may be the future c
Africa in regard to population. it
seems evident that European domina-
tion will be increasingly strong," said
Prof. Stanley D. Dodge in his lee-
ture "The Distribution of Population
in-Africaa" delivered in the auditorium
.of the Natural Science building yes-
"The problem of population arisep
through the working of the neo-Mal-
thusian doctrine, which states, in ef

able to produce. Africa is today the
largest area in which people live clos
to nature, but it is rapidly changing
through the increase of European im
migration. This European occupa-
tion occurs in the greatest degree it
the extreme southern portion alon-
the coast and on the western coast
in Nigeria. There is also a tendenc'
for Europeans to settle in the easter-
portion of Africa along the coast.
"The distribution of population in
Africa does not coincide with the
areas of greatest productivity at the
,present time, and this is also due in
a large measure to the European in-
fluence. In Nigeria, where the Brit-
ish have control, the population haw
increased rapidly, due to the aboli-
tion of inter-tribal wars and the in-
troduction of modern scientific meth-
ods of desease control. In this area

conscription of labor was allowed and
many natives had moved out to avoi'
being put into virtual slavery. At the
same time many of the cattle hav
disappeared because of a disease
similar to the hoof and mouth disease
found in this country. He stated that
many dthe oases in the Sahara desert
were rather heavily populated, due to
the richness of the land.
The lecture was illustrated by a
number of slides showing the dress
and homes of the natives. The kind
of homes built vary according to the
locality and the prevalence of trees.
Where trees are small the houses are
low and made of small branches, roof-
ed with thatch. In other portions the
houses have mud walls and are much
larger. The lecture showed that the
distribution of population and the life
of the natives depended a great deal

FIRENCH REPLY TO OUTL.WING
OF WAR EXPECTED AT
PLAN PLEASES GERMANY
Proposed Treaty Calls For Nations 'To
Condemn Recourse To War In
WASHINGTON, July 13-Secretary
Kellogg's revised treaty for outlaw-
ing war is entirely acceptable to Ger-
many and a favorable reply from
France is expected within a few days.
The note signed by acting foreign
minister Schubert at Berlin, detailing
his country's attitude, was made pub-
lic at the state department Thurs-
day night, while Ambassador Claudel
called upon Mr. Kellogg to tell him
of the forthcoming French reply.
This probably will be handed to
Ambassador Herrick at Paris Satur-
day, he said, on the great French
holiday celebrating the fall of the
Bastile. The reply he described as
an acceptance of the explanations and
interpretations of the proposed pact
as outlined by Mr. Kellogg in his
note of June 23.
Germany's acceptance was sweep-
ing and unqualified, and the note de-
clared that the Berlin government was
ready to sign the treaty at once in
the form in which it was submit-
A draft of the proposed pact was
sent simultaneously to 14 ntions, in-
cluding, in addition to France and
Germany, Great Britain, Japan, and
Italy. Germany was the first to re-
Under the proposed treaty, the sig-
natory nations would "condemn re-
course to war" annd "renounce it as
an instrument of national policy."
Further, they would agree to use only
pacific means in seeking a settlement
of whatever disputes or conflicts
might arise between them, regardless
of their nature or origin.
The preamble sets forth that any
signatory nation resorting to war in
vi(jlationt of the pact would auto-
matically be denied its benefits and
that at the same time, the other mem-
bers of the compact would be freed
of their obligations under the treaty
to the offending state.
FOR FIRST YEAR
Plans for the program for the wom-
en during Freshman week, which will
be held during the week of September
17 to 23, will be much the same as
those used last year, except that they
will include several supplementary
features planned to make the week
more beneficial and attractive to the
freshmen, according to Miss Beatrice
Johnson, advisor for women.
The first day of Freshman week
Incoming students will listen to an
address on "How to Study and take
Notes," by Prof. Charles Berry, Prof
of Educational Psychology. This
lecture has as a special object the
teaching of the Freshman to take hold
of his work seriously from the very
beginning of the college year, and as
it has already been given during the
freshman week of at least one other
college and found to be of decided
value, it is considered a big addi-
tion to the program.
At 4 o'clock on Tuesday, the Fresh-
men women will meet at Palmer
field and at the new Women's athletic
building for an afternoon in competi-
tive sports. Dr. Margaret Bell, headl
of physical education for women, has
charge of- this part of the program
inent speakers who will give their i'

their particular field. These short
talks will deal with subjects such as

"Work with- the Pre-school Child."
The remainder of the week will in-
clude a reception and discussions.

Children's Literature Shows Tendency
Toward Internationalism, Says Martin
The fourth of the special weekend
public health institutes for doctors,
educators and public health workers
in all branches of the service, held
by the University summer session at
West Medical building, was opened at
9 o'clock yesterday morning. Prin-
ciples and practices/of sanitary in-
spection, mental hygiene, public health
engineering, typhoid fever, and can-
cer were the subjects docketed for
discussion during the day.
The meeting Saturday is the mid-
summer gathering of -the Michigan
Public Health association. A special
program has been prepared for this
At 9 o'clock Dr. John Sundwall,
president of the association and di-
rector of the special health institutes,
delivered the introductory remarks.
He was followed by Miss Mabel Bragg,
assistant superintendent of schools,
New ton, Mass., who spoke on "Meth-
ods and Materials in Health Teach-
ing." At 10 o'clock, Dr. L. L. Lumd-
den, senior surgeon, United States
public health health service, Wash-
ington, D. C., discussed "County
Health Units in the United States."
This was followed by a talk on rabies
by Dr. Herbert Emerson of the Pasteur
institute at the University.
Following a luncheon at the Michi-
gan Union, Prof - William C. Hoad of
the engineering college of the Uni-
versity, spoke on some phases of pub-
lie health engineering.
"Children's literature at the present
time is showing a great tendency to-
wards inlternationalism," says Miss
Helen Martin of Western Reerve un-
yversity library school. "By this I
meanthat books about children from
far away lands have a great appeal.
No longer are children interested in
the home life of children of their own
country- they can see plenty of that
about them but the far away lends
a spirit of adventurd."
Books are now being written says
Miss Martin, which deal with the cus-
toms and school life of foreign chil-
dren in Europ'ean and Asiatic coun-.
tries. The'se prove to be not only
entertaining but instructive as well.
About fifteen years ago children
were interested in books about Amer-
ican home life. Families with fathers,
mothers, graudidothers, and pets then
had the most appeal. Now, however,
books about American children which
interest young people are those books
which deal with school life with all
its aspects, such as .sports, rivalries,
and studies. Girls are especially in-
terested in books of camping, either
Camp Fire Girls or Girl Scouts and
boys are interested in books on chem-1
