during the celebration of 100 years in
Ann Arbor June 15-19 to be helpful and
valuable to this institution, The Daily

the next week a day-by-day recon-

Hope Nicolson, 43-year-old dean of
Smith College, who took degrees at
Michigan in 1914 and 1918 and a
Ph.D. from Harvard in 1920, yester-
day declared that "the fundamental
reason that women do not achieve so
greatly in the professions as do men
is that women have no wives."
"Until such time as science or ec-
onomics corrects this blunder of na-
ture," she continued, "we shall re-
main, I fear, the 'inferior sex.'

which men hardly feel. Who really

In the teaching field Dean Nicol-

"The chief openings for women," she
pointed out, "are still in the women's
colleges, which are few in number.
'You in the women's institutions,'
wrote the dean of one of our great
graduate schools to me not long ago,
'must take on your staffs women rath-
er than men, for otherwise we can-
not place the women.' At first sight
this seems a valid argument, but is it?
Some of the women's colleges have a
definite policy of having a balance of
men and women on the staffs, believ-
ing that it is well for young women
to learn more than one point of view.
Yet is there one man's college in this
broad land so liberal or so intelligent
in its policy?
"Careful study of many faculty
lists shows that either there are so
few women that the number employed
may be said to be negligible; or there
seems, at first glance, a fair propor-
tion of women, who, when one ex-
amines more closely, prove to be in

Chauncey S. Boucher, president of

on the same panel, deplored the fact
that universities are for the most part
unfitted for specialization in aca-

"Most state universities today have
in their student bodies, mixed indis-
criminately in the various courses, a
spread of aptitude and capacity rang-

Boucher said; "the result is that the

An extension course in modern dance has been organized for 7:30
p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays in Barbour Gymnasium to meet
the demand for dancing instruction of persons not enrolled in the
Summer Session. The course will be taught by Katherine Manning
who is here this summer teaching in the department of physical edu-
cation for women. Miss Manning has had considerable training with
Doris Humphrey and at the Bennington School of Dance. The class will
meet for the first time Wednesday, July 7 on the second floor of Bar-
bour Gymnasium. Those interested are asked to attend this meeting
at which time registration for the course will take place. The registra-
tion fee is five dollars.

Construction of a single story
building has been begun by the King-
Seeley Corporation on a site, north of
its present factory.
The new building will cost the cor-
poration $40,000, and is expected to
be ready for occupancy by the middle
of August. Expansion of the present
factory was deemea necessary when
the corporation's continuous progress
resulted in a proportionate increase
in employment.

fully 550 algae, representing more
than 100 genera exclusive of diatoms,
have been definitely recorded.
For the study of animals, the wide
ange of terrestrial and aquatic habi-
tats, and large unsettled or sparsely
settled areas offer many opportuni-
ties. The mammals include small ro-
dents, muskrat, woodchuck, badger,
coyote, red fox, beaver, wildcat, bear
and deer.
Moreover, the study of birds can be
carried on to excellent advantage.
During the period of the Summer Ses-
sion about 175 species of birds have
been identified.
A number of factors contribute to
make the Station an unusually good
place for study and research. Among
these may be mentioned the northern
flora, an adequate fauna, an excel-
lent climate, excellent conditions for
study, freedom from intrusion of out-
side interests, from the limitations
of the usual university schedule, from
the disturbing conditions of urban
life, and adequate opportunity for
spending a part of each day in the
sunshine and open air in study and
recreationthese advantages without
the necessity of giving up the essen-
tials for comfortable living.
The living accommodations, fa-
cilities for instruction and research,
will be reviewed in a future article.
Prof. Henry L. Kohler of the me-

laboratories of the Sealed Power Pis-
ton Ring Corp., in Muskegon. He is
expected to return to the engineering
faculty in 1938.

States would it be possible to have
so many-sided and sustained an ex-
amination of the major principles
and controversies of international
law as in Ann Arbor this summer,
for the reason that apparently at no
other university-save Harvard, Yale
and Chicago-is there more than one
professor offering courses in the sub-
To Hold Public Lectures
In addition to the regular courses
and conferences here, meeting in the
forenoons, six days a week, there will
be a series of lectures on Monday
evenings, open to the public, begin-
ning with one by Professor Wilson
at 8 p.m. Tuesday evening, on the
topic: "Twentieth Century Interna-
tional Law." These public lectures
will be held in the Political Science
Lecture Hall, Room 1025, Angell Hall.
In organizing and sustaining this
Institute it is obvious that the Car-
negie Endowment is rendering a
unique service not merely to the
colleges and teachers of the United
States and other countries-and
especially to the University, which it
selected as the seat of the Institute
in the United States because of the
greatness of the University and the
charm and central geographical posi-
tion of Ann Arbor-but, likewise, that
it is endeavoring to strengthen the
knowledge of and popular faith in
the employment of rules of reason
and principles of justice rather than
engines of violence and nationalist
terror in the contemporary world.
Gauss Quoted
Thereby it is giving point and'prac-
tice to the recent declaration of Dr.
Christian Gauss, of Princeton and
Michigan, speaking at the Michigan
Centennial celebration, two weeks
ago, saying: "There are no geograph-
ical limits to the responsibilities of
the educated man. In my concep-:
tion, the responsibility of a univer-
sity, even a municipal or a state
university, or a national university,
transcends national limits."j
International law, by the nature of
its basic assumptions, does this; and,!

A THOROUGHBRED will carry more weight fur-

blooded race horses trace their descent from three
Arabian Studs, Byerly Turk, Darly Arabian, and

Godolphin Barb.

Crossed with English mares

these stallions produced horses vastly superior to
any before known. The strain proved so fine
that it was kept carefully intact and resulted
in the fleet Thoroughbred.
OF THESE THREE HORSES, perhaps, the history
of Godolphin Barb is the most romantic. Dis-
covered in 1728 hitched to a hackney cab on the
streets of Paris, he was purchased by an English-
man, Mr. Coke, and given by him as a present
to a friend, Mr. Williams, who in turn presented
the stallion to the Earl of Godolphin. In the
Earl's stables the horse was to make famous the
name of Godolphin.

superb racing strains of Eclipse, Herod and
Matchem, known wherever men discuss fine
horses. Strange to say, the Thoroughbreds thus
developed proved far fleeter than the horses by
whom they were sired, and today it is common
knowledge that a medium Thoroughbred will
outrun the best of the Arabians. But from the
three noble stallions they received an unmatched
heritage for courage, endurance, intelligence,
and speed that would respond to breeding.
OVER A PERIOD OF YEARs The Michigan Daily has
proved its right to the title of Thoroughbred.
