Phi Delta Kappa To Hold
Initiation Banquet At
MichiganUnion Today
The annual initiation of Phi Delta
Kappa, honorary education frater-
nity, will be held at the Union at 4
p.m., followed by a banquet at 6:30
p.m. According to James J. Mc-
Laughlin, president of the organiza-
tion, the 37 neophytes of the Sum-
mer Session are one of the largest
groups in years.
The master of ceremonies will be
Dr. Raleigh Schorling, professor of
education in the University and di-
rector of teacher training. Dr. Har-
lan C. Koch, assistant director of the
Bureau of Cooperation with Educa-
tional Institutions, will welcome the
new initiates to membership; and
Lauren A. Packard, superintendent of
schools in Port Huron, will reply for
the initiates.
This summer, the neophytes are
mostly high school principals and
superintendents, although there are
a few teachers. Phi Delta Kappa is
an honorary society for men in the
educational profession. It is na-
tional in organization, with chapters
in the various state universities. The
University of Michigan chapter is
Omega. The standards for member-
ship are listed as those of "research,
leadership and service," and candi-
dates must have high scholastic
standings for their work in, the
University, and must have attained
prominence in their respective fields.
The organization is unique in that
the percentage of active members to
the whole membership is very high,
there being a total of over 600 ini-
tiates, with more than 400 active. The
society holds a dinner every Tuesday
for the Summer Session members.
The membership committee, which
selects the candiates, is headed by
Malcolm Williams. The others are
Prof. E. A. Walter, Vaden Miles and
E. L. Rager. The initiation commit-
tee, in charge of today's proceedings,
is composed of Ralph Frostic, chair-
man, Clyde Vroman, Warren Good,
Lawrence Kruegar and Charles

much discussion on the point.
The passage to the East, a phantom
chased by so many European explor-
ers during the 16th and 17th cen-
turies, was sought as a part of the
development, of the autocratic and
imperialistic policy of Louis and Col-
bert, Professor Crane stated. Cham-
plain, Nicolet, and other Frenchmen
in North America had already spent
many years in the search to the West,
and in 1669 Joliet had made a voyage
across Lake Erie in spite of the dan-
gers of the region to the French owing
to the enmity of the fierce Iroquois,
with whose enemies, the Algonquins,
Champlain had made an alliance.
At any rate, the expedition, with
Marquette probably in the capacity
of chaplain, set out from the priest's
famous stone mission at St. Ignace,
accompanied by the warnings of
friendly Indians of the immense dan-
gers of their proposed trip down the
Mississippi, where, it was said, lurked
not only hostile savage but monsters
and demons as well. After a month's
voyage the little party reached the
great river near its source, and began
the trip downstream.
At first the Indians behaved with
civility, but as the group reached the
territory of the present state of Ar-
kansas the temper of the savages
changed, finally causing the expedi-
tion to turn about when it was found
many of them were armed with guns
supplied by the Spaniards. They
were certain by this time that the
Mississippi emptied into the Gulf of
Mexico, and believed themselves only
three days' journey from the mouth.
The sequel to this trip was the
death of Marquette in a voyage in
1675 in which he had hoped to ex-

Health Officer
Outlines Four
Gym Functions
Says Program Will Include
Hygiene, Instruction And
Physical education is education not
of the physical, but through the phys-
ical, Walter A. Cox, director of the
Bureau of Health Education of the
city school system of Albany, N.Y.,
told a group yesterday in the audi-
torium of the University high school.
"There are four functions that
physical education has in the present
school curriculum," he said. "It
should develop the organic systems of
the body, it should develop the neuro-
muscular system of the body, it should
develop favorable attitudes towards
play and it should develop a certain
standard of social life."
Speaking on physical education for
the public school, Mr. Cox stated that
it is thought of in four divisions.
"There is the health program, the
health service, the physical activity
program and the health instruction,"
he declared.
Chief among the school health pro-
gram, according to Mr. Cox, are sani-
tary arrangements, hygiene instruc-
tion and health examinations.
"Health examinations should find
what is wrong with the pupil, and give
information concerning his physical
defects to his parents," he said.

Observatory Holds First Open

House Of New



Summer School Students
Invited; Professor Curtis
To Be InCharge
The first of two "Open Houses"
at the Observatory, corner of Ann
and Observatory streets, will be held
this afternoon from 2 till 5. Any stu-
dent enrolled in the Summer Session
who is interested is cordially invited.
No tickets are necessary. Professor
Heber D. Curtis, chairman of the As-
tronomy department here, and Di-
rector of Observatories, will be in
This and the next open house, to
be held Aug. 5, are a part of the new
visitors' program being tried this
summer, according to Prof. Curtis.
The schedule includes also seven eve-
nings at the telescopes in Angell Hall
for observing purposes. Three of
these have already been held and the
next visiting night will be tomorrow,
followed by the nights of Aug. 6, 13,
and 14. The turnout for those held
has been very gratifying, Prof. Curtis
said, although the condition of the
weather has been an important fac-
tor in the size of the crowd of any
one night. About 200 were present
at the last one, July 23. More than
three hundred could be easily han-
dled, he said.
The first two nights at Angell Hall
were devoted to observations of the
moon, as will be the last two, Aug.
13 and 14. The other three nights
will be turned over to interesting ce-
lestial bodies such as Mars, Jupiter,
star clusters, and double stars. Prof.
Curtis said. In case of cloudy wea-
ther, lantern slides and demonstra-
tions of the various apparatus avail-
able will be substituted.
Observing is not done for visitors
at the Observatory because the teles-
copes there, although larger than
those in Angell Hall, are fitted for
photographic work now.
Last year three nights in a row

were devoted to visitors with the re-
sult that over-crowding hindered the
proceedings. Between 700 and 900
summer session students attended
last year. Interest is shown in every-
thing on the astronomical program,
but most people want to look at the
moon, according to Professor Curtis.

group begins its trips about 7:30,
leaving by field car for the area to be

carries a light lunch, canteen, and

the latter is lent the students by the
University although some is privately
owned. Trips generally last until
about 4 p.m. and dinner is served at
6 p.m.
