Wash. a graduate of the University,
has recently been appointed to the
post of state bakery and sanitary in-
spector by Governor Lister, of Wash-
ington, having gained a state wide
reputation as a pure food crusader
dturing two years in the office of food
and nmarket inspector for the city of
Publicity was the chief weapon in
the campaign, the newspapers coop-
erating actively with liss Wimple's
oflice. Details of her reports were
published constantly and stores or
markets which did not toe the mark
soon found their business twindling.
Before 'Miss Wimple ha been in of-
ftee six months the food purveyors of
Tacoma were vying with one another
in maintaining sanitary establish-
itents and pure stocks. Miss Wimple
is expected to introduce the same
methods ito her state campaign.

Professor Tealdi Explains English
Ideal Illustrated by Oxford
and Cambridge.
"I would like to see the campus of
the University of Michigan inclosed,"
said Prof. Aubrey Tealdi in a lec-
ture on "Some English Gardens" in
the west amphitheater of the physics
building Thursday afternoon. "By a
wall or some sort of an enclosure,"
he said, "we could produce some of
the effects of Oxford and Cambridge.
Our architecture differs, of course,
but at least some of the classic beauty
could be obtained."
Prof. Tealdi considered English
from the seventeenth century up to
the present time. In comparing
American gardens with those of Eng-
land, he said, "In England the gard-
en is a part of life, but here it is
something subortinate and out of the
way." One of the principal features
of English gardens was shown to be
the variety. "I have not seen two
gardens in England which resemble
each other," he said.
It was shown that the garden is
possible for the poor people as well
as the aristocratic families which can
afford to employ skilled gardeners.
By stereopticon illustrations simple
gardens were shown to be more effect-
