Hospitals Now Cost Three
Billions Yearly, Doctor
Points out in Talk
Showing ttlat the science of medi-
cal care As closely associated with the
economic and social structure, Dr.
Nathan Sinai, professor of hygiene
and public ,health in a lecture at
Natural Science auditorium yester-
day described the changes in medical
technique which came about through
the influence of the industrial revo-
"In early America," Dr. Sinai said,
"society was chiefly agricultural. The
people. were free artisans and manu-
facturing as done in and near the
forests. There was no tiird party
between the producer and the con-
sumer. The science of medicine was
embodied in the individual country
doctor. Hi' 'equipment was simple
and his education very informal.
Social Structure Changes
"The social structure, "rofessor
Sinai continued," shows itself to be
very fluid-like in its ability to change
very rapidly. Free land in the United
States disappeared and with the rise
of industry came a division of labor.
Instead of doing the whole job, tlie.
American workman now does but
one inch of the job. The chance to
go into business for himself disap-
Concurrently with this change in
labor methods, Dr. Sinai said, came
a change in medicine, a tendency
toward specialization-
Research More Minute
"Specialization," he said, "can't
stop ;,as long as research becomes
more and more minute. The hospital
which was once.the house of death
has become the house of life anda
representsaa yearly investment in the
United States and three billion dol-
lars. Around the old country physi-
cian have ariseri the trained nurse,
the X-ray laboratory and the bac-
teriological researcl."
With all this equipment, however,
Dr. Sinai found that the public still
lacked the medical care it needed
because of the unequal distribution,
of wealth.
Dr. Sinai saw hope, however, in
the studies being made by a na7
tional group of fifteen men who will
make their report this year on the
cost of medical care. It is expected,
he said, that they will present new
devices to get a better type of med-
ical service at a cost within the
average income.s

"The consolidation of small units

into larger 'ones for the purpose of
equalizing educational opportunities,
makes for the most effective school
system," declared Dr. Frank Bach-
man, survey director of the George
Peabody college for teachers, in a
l6cture yesterday.
"The south has made a distinct
contribution to education in develop-
ing the county unit," he asserted.
"New England had the town or town-
ship system, but the consolidation
system is most effective..
"There have been three stages in
this movement of consolidation. ''he
pioneering stags, 1910-1913, showed
an awakening spirit on the part of
educational leaders for the needs of
consolidation. The second period,
1913-1924, was the period of consoli-
dation when the counties became
dotted with four to six room consoli-
dated schools. A distinct style of
school architecture was developed.
"The third period was that of
scientific consolidation. The leaders

Head of Administration
Returns to Frankfort for

Continuation of the work of the
University Council and an attempt to
smooth out some of the difficulties
which have arisen from it is to be
the chief administrative project of
the University during the coming
year, President Ruthven said yester-
day. No fundamental changes in the
present system are contemplated.
The Council, President Ruthven
stated, is principally engaged in the,
study of the work and personnel of
the various University committees
and was formed in an effort to per-
feet the organization of the Univer-
sity from administrative angles.
Praises Work of Body
Although the Council has been in!
operation for a year, much of its
work remains to be done. \
"I am exceptionally pleased," the
president said, "with the manner in
which the Council has been working.
For the first time in a number of
years the faculties are concerned,
with the' whole academic program."
The Council was formed about a
year ago to expedite the work of the'
University Senate, comprising the
memtbrs of all, the faculties. It is a
representative body and has become,
the executive organization of the
University Senate..I
President Ruthven, who returned
to Ann Arbor Monday to attend a
meeting of the University of Michi-

Members; Grand Show
Bands blared, barkers barkdd, and
Ann. Arbor society, students and fac-
ulty turned out in full force, first to,
sizzle in the heat under the big top,
and then to soak under the leaky
roof. It was a grand show.
Wandering around, ooking at the
elephants and tigers, with that in-
tense fervor that only he can eman-
ate, was our o~'n Robert Henderson,
director of numerous dramatic festi-
vals, taking it all in. And when the

Loree and Myers, taking health
hints on the care and feeding of ani-
mals. Louis Dunham, of the history
department, was more interested in
chaperoning his party, and didn't
really seem to take the whole affair
to heart.
But the person who probably got
the most good out of the circus was'
Horatio J. Abott, whose congressional
campaign was started with a big
bang. Thie clowns were also Demo-
crats, and called on him repeatedly?
for speeches. Horatio took off his
coat, rolled up his shirtsleeves, and
was promptly drowned out by the

was the gentleman with the flat tire

the circus left, and the show is overl
