Public Health Officials and
Social Workers to Attend
Health Institutes.
Many Nationally Famous Health
Lecturers Scheduled to Take
Part in Programs.
"Functioning "adequately in pub-
lic health requires that the worker;
should be continually alive to the
progress which is being made; the
Public health institutes offer un-
usual opportunities for keeping up
with this advancement," points
out the University Bulletini on Spe-
cial Public Health Institutes, "and
for those public health workers who
are unable to attend the regular
Summer Session courses, the Uni-
vrsity offers intensified work in
the form of week end institutes."
This amounts To a challenge to
those interested in public health
work in this section.
Six public health institutes have
been announced by the University1
*n Fridays and Saturdays of each
week (except July 4) starting June
27 to August , 1930. The institutes
are so organized as to form a om-
plete series, single institutes over
one week end may, however, be at-
tended with profit. The attendance
registered especially for the first
institute this year was 33, 40 less
than last year's attendance for the
first institute.
Courses Popular Last Year.
Last year 228 students took ad-
vantage of these intensive courses.
Of this number 205 or more than
90 per cent were women. Men at-
tending the institutes numbered
only 23. All sections of the State
were represented in this enrollment
and the neighboring states contrib-
uted thirteen to the total, with Ohio
leading with an enrollment of six.
Almost all branches of social and
welfare workers studied in these in-
stitutes and the group included
Public health administrators and
workers, nurses on the boards of
education, industrial nurses, public
health nurses, visiting nurses, food
inspectors, superintendents of
schools, nutrition workers, labor-
atorians, health education teach-

Spain's Plan for World's Largest University
Takes Shape With Completion of Buildings

By Clarence Du Bose
(Associated Press Correspondent)
SMADRID, July 3-Spain's dream
of again having, as in the middle
ages, one of the greatest universi-
ties in the world, is rapidly becom-
ing tangible.
Four thousand workmen are con-
structing the huge "University city"
in a beautiful 900-acre park in the
outskirts of the capital. Half a
dozen buildings are completed.
,It is hoped that in less than four
years this "new Athens of our cen-
tury,",as Spanish writers have call-
ed it, will be completed, at an es-
timated cost of about $50,000,OO00.
It will accommodate about 15,000
students and its grounds, it is said
here, will be larger than those of
any university in the world. The
land was donated by Kling Alfonso
to whom it belonged as a royal pre-
It is hoped to make this the fore-
most educational center of the
Spanish speaking world. Argen-
tine, Cuba, Chile, Uraguay and Peru
are already pledged to erect build-
ings for students from their coun-
tries. All lands of Spanish speech
are expected to do likewise.
A fine dormitory for United States
students is already completed. It
is the gift of Gregorio del Amo, a
Spanish resident of Los Angeles,
California, who donated two million
pesetas for its construction.
The funds so far have been raised
by nation-wide popular subscrip-
tions in Spain, by gifts from weal-
thy Spaniards at home and abroad,
and by special government lotteries

organized to raise money for the
The "University City" is intended
to be a monument to the reign of
Alfonso XII. It results from the
raising of popular scription to com-
memorate, in May, 1927, the twen-
ty-fifth anniversary of his corona-
tion. About 43,000,000 pesetas were
given. Then the king was heard
from. In effect, he said :
"Please do not use this money for
a monument that will merely be a
beautiful thing to see. Use it as the

Flint Fisher Body Workmen Ask
for New Wage Agreement
With Corporation.
(By Associated Press)
FLINT, Mich., July 4-The strike
of Fisher Body Corp. employees'
took more .definite form today as
the workers at a mass meeting drew
up a schedule of demand, which
leaders said had unanimous ap-
proval. The demand dealt with
wages and working conditions.
The meeting, at which a com-
mittee was named to seek funds for
relief of strikers' families, was held
after state police had broken up a.
milling picket line of some 1,500
strikers in front of the Fisher plant.
