Medical Head Points Out that Students
Are Obliged to Serve State
That Educates Them
"Take some one thing and kow
'nure about At than anyone else in the
world knows. Be an expert." This
was the advice given by Dr. V. C.
Vaughan, dean ot the medical school,
at the Natural Science building Tues-
day evening,
"The object of an education is to
make a better citizen. Doesn't it do
it?" was the question he asked. "If
it does, money is well spent."
He also spoke of the tremendous
amount of money spent annual to
run the University, and annolced
that each and every one, accepting the
offer of an education offered by the
state, is under obligations to serve the
"Education may be a curse to the in-
dividual and a detriment to the state.
Every student must manifest intelli-
gence, industry and deepest integrity.
Without these qualities, he may be-
come a menace to his fellow citizens.
"Man owes his superiority over the
rest of creation not in the sense of
sight, not in the sense of smell, nor
of touch, but -in nervous system. Edu-
cation is a development of the ner-
vous system. The first thing, there-
fore, in getting an education, is to see
that our senses are in good working
order. All education requires effort.

Last flinute News
Told in lrief
London, July 27.-Further gains for
the armies of the Entente Allies on
three fronts-on the River Somme, in
northern France; in the east, where
the Russians are pushing on, and in
the Caucasus region-are officially
reported today, according to the De-
troit Firee Press.
Th British in their drive on the
River Somme have further opened the
path to the important positions of
Bapaume by completely occupying the
village of Pozieres, which was a grave
obstacle in the smash as long as Ger-
man forces remained in possession of
a portion of this point. Berlin con-
cedes the complete capitulation of
Russ Continue Gains
Austro-German forces continue un-
able to sustain the great pressure of
the Russian offensive in Volhynia, and
later reports of the fighting in that
section are that the breach in the de-
fense lines has been widened with the
forces of the Czar advancing in the
Slonevka region while the enemy
steadily fails back. The Russians have
crossed the Slonevka river, a tribu-
tary to the Styr, and Petrograd an-
nounces the capture of five guns, six
machine guns, military stores and a
considerable number of additional
That all the peaceful' pursuits have
not ceased in France is shown by the
recent publication there of a book on
"French Versification," written by
Prof. Hugo F. Thieme, of this Uni-

versity. The book is published by
Edouard Champion and Company, of
Paris. The preface is written by M.
Gustave Lanson, dean of letters of the
University of Paris. There is a copy
of the book now in the University li-

Bath Famine At
Newberry Dorm
I call it-well anything, if one
works hard all day over their French,
English or whatever it is, in the burn-
ing sun and then wants to take a cold
bath. But the supply of water has
been exhausted. Well, that's what has
been happening'to the women students
of Newberry Residence for the lant
week. Dean Gtes made the announce-
ment that the girls should please re-
frain from taking baths between the
hours of 5:00 and 8:00 in the morning,
and 5:00 and 8:00 in the evening.
Large Audience Hears Andrew Haigh
and Mrs. Shram-Imig at
The regular mid-week concert was
given last evening at Hill Auditorium
by Mr. Andrew Haigh, pianist, and
Mrs. Anna Shram-Imig, soloist, both
of Detroit. An increasingly large num-
ber are learning what pleasant relaxa-
stion and delightful musical treats
these concerts afford, and last night's
attendance fairly rivalled that of
winter concerts.
Mr. Haigh has genuine ability and
a splendid technique. His notes are
wonderfully clear, with a ringing bell-
like tone. He lacks, however, the
earnestness and self - forgetfulness
which characterize the mature artist.
Tchaikowsky's sonata opus 36a was
very wll-onc, It weas flooded with
the mystic Russian spirit and marked
by rhythm, almost barbaric, through
all four movements. Mr. Haigh was
generous with encores.
Mrs. Imig has rich flowing tone, and
a personality which seems., to fit her
to sing the German lieder. Her first
group was of this sort and charming-
ly done. Her second group was a
selection of English songs, among them
"The Lament of Rachel", which was
with great dramatic feeling.
Builders' Bids for Union to be Asked
in August
Architect's plans for the new Mich-
igan Union building are in process of
completion and it is expected that they
will be finished by the end of August,
when the bids will be asked from the
various builders. Whether or not a
local firm will do the building is a
matter of interest. The building will
undoubtedly be the largest and finest
ever built in Ann Arbor and it is a
question whether a firm capable of
putting up a- $60,000 or $70,000 build-
ing will be able to handle a $650,000
The new temporary home of the
Michigan Union which is to be used
until the completion of the new build-
ing in June, 1918, will be ready for
use when the students return for the
regular session next October. It will
be quite an improvement on the old
quarters especially in the matter of
space. The dining rooms in the base-
ment are better by far than in the old
building and the dance floor has been
moved with remarkable skill. The
reading room is now open for use of
the members although very few seem
to have taken advantage of it. Homer
L. Heath, general manager of the
Michigan Union, is in charge of the
improvements and promises a pleasant

surprise for the returning student
Profs. Bigelow, Lloyd and Barrett Tour
Prof. S. L. Bigelow, Dean A. H.

Bay country, in Northern Michigan.

Only "Garden City" in World, Ia. Eng-
land; Co-operation Essential
For City Planning
"City planning, like anything else,
is a comprohise, and to succeed it
must have co-opertion," said Prof.
Aubrey Tealdi, in a lecture on city
planning, delivered in the Natural Sci-
ence building on Tuesday afternoon.
"City planning," he said, "is something
besides physical; it is ociological and
economical as well."
Professor Tealdi then gave a short
history of the development of city
planning, which began in the time of
Plato, but has developed very slowly
since then. Many "garden cities" have'
been planned, said the speaker, but it
was not until 1898 that the plan which
was to succeed wasworked out. Its
originator was Ebenezer Howard, who
wroteia book entitled, "Tomorrow,"
in which he set forth his plans. Today
these plans are in effect at Letchworth,
England, the only true garden city in
existence. It is owned by its inhab-
itants, which does away with land
Professor Tealdi illustrated the lec-
ture with slides showing various types.
of city plans, while he explained their
good and bad features.
Journey to Comprise Industrial, His.
torical, and Geological
An excursion to Put-in-Bay will be
conducted on August 5 by Dr. C. O.
Sauer, of the geology department,
leaving Ann Arbor at 5:37 in the
morning, and returning in the evening
at 9:10.
The trip, besides being an enjoyable
one, comprises a study of the indus-
trial water front of the Detroit river,
and an opportunity to visit a scene of
historical interest-for it was in the
region of Put-in-Bay that Perry's fa-
mous naval battle was fought. On the
island there are several unique caves,
limestone and crystalline, which the
party will visit. Dr. Sauer is taking
two of his summer school classes on
this trip, and he will be glad to make
arrangements for any interested peo-
ple who would like to go along. The
expenses, exclusive of meals, will not
exceed $2.00, and the trip is one which
everyone would enjoy taking. Those
desiring to go who are not members
of the class will please notify Dr.
Saer in advance.
Last Friday 37 students and inter-
ested friends left here for Niagara
Falls, the largest party that ever made
the trip. The trip was characterized
by general smoothness, the weather
being perfect, the crowd unusually
congenial, and the accommodations
everywhere of the best. Because of
the size of the party, it was possible
to make many more stops and side-
trips than is customary.
The most interesting feature of the
journey was the Gorge trip, which oc-

cupied half a day, with many stops at
places of interest, among which was
Niagara Glen, on the Canadian side.
Prof, William H. Hobbs and family
will leave Ann Arbor Saturday, and
will motor through to Boston, New
York, and other points in the east,

Artist Sketches
Old Engine House
"Every dog has his day," runs the
old saying, ind the summer session
art students are making it good. It
is. not the majestic Natural Science
building that receives their attention
these days, nor yet Hill auditorium,
the University's pride and joy,-it is
the little old white-washed engine
house, with its rambling green vines
and its lonesome looking wheelbarrow
that is proving popular.
Walk down the diagonal walk, and
behold benches of ardent student ar-
tists, sitting with backs scornfully
turned to the proud new and modern-
ly equipped hall of science, making
little dabs of paint on a very large
white paper. The little engine house
has come into its own at last.
All-Campus Team Journeys to Down-
river City; Turner to
Saturday afternoon the all-campus
baseball team will journey to Ypsilanti
where it will take on the Normalite
gang in the second game of the sum-
mer series. The Wolverines, fresh
from last Saturday's victory, are con-
fident of winning but the opposition
will be much stiffer this week than it
was last. The Teachers will present
their storngect lineup and will be out
for revenge. Coach Mitchell claims;
that his men played away below their
form in the last engagement and looks
for a far different result this time.
The Michiganders will present a
changed front, with "Turk" Turner
the most probable choice for the hurl-
ing job. Nemann and Robbins are al-
so possible moundsmen
There are two more games to be
played in the inter-departmental
league this week, the lits and scientists
facing each other this afternoon, with
the barristers stacking up against the
embryo Darwins tomorrow. Today's
contest will probably resolve itself in-
to a pitching dual between Niemann
and Honey, star hurlers of their re-
spective teams. A tag day will prob-
ably be held in the near future to col-
lect funds for the maintenance of the
Son of Dr. L. P. Hall Recovering From
Sickness i Paris
Word has been received from Paris
that Louis Hall, son of Dr. Louis P.
P. Hall, of the Uhiversity Dental
School, is just recovering from scarlet
fever. Hall left this spring for Paris
where he resumed his work with the
American ambulance corps. Mrs.
Louis P. Hall, who left for Europe a
short time ago, is with her son in
Paris. Mrs. Hall was accompanied by
Miss Fannie Burroughs, who recent-
ly resigned her position as visiting
nurse here.
Mr. Hall was a student at the Uni-
versity of Michigan for two years, and
also a graduate of Harvard.

Hill Auditorium Scene of Patriotic
Ceremony; Parade at 7:00
Everything is in readiness for the
flag presentation ceremony in Till
auditorium tomorrow evening.
The big red, white, and blue banner
with stripes 28 inches across has been
hung, and speakers are preparing to
put their best foot forward in the two
or three talks to be given.
The Eastern Michigan Edison com-
pany, working conjointly with the fire
department, stretched a giant cable
across Main street, from the National
Bank to the court house tower yester-
day. The cable has seven strands,
and has been tested to withstand a
strain of 1,600 pounds. Both the cable
and the labor of putting it up are the
donations of the Edison company.
Every business house in the city has
been asked to close at 3 o'clock in
the afternoon, andhwhen the parade
forms in front of the court house at
7, o'clock the citizens of Ann Arbor
will be privileged to see one of the
greatest patriotic celebrations that
has taken place in this city in a num-
ber of years.
Charles M. Oldrin, who has done
Herculean work as chairman of the
committee. which has had charge of
raising funds, is in receipt of a letter
from Captain Wilson, commancding Co.
I, 31st infantry., The letter is as fol-
lows :
"Mr. Charles M. Oldrin,
"Ann Arbor, Mich.:
"Dear Sir--Your communication at
"Your personal activities and your
co-operation with the other men de-
voting time to the benefit of Company
I's interest in Ann Arbor are greatly
appreciated by this organization, and
I hope to know you better sometime
in the future,
"My complete co-operation with the
suggestion in your communication
will be gladly forthcoming. We, know-
ing the necessity of making pictures
in the shortest possible time, have
this morning taken several that we
think will meet with your approval.
They will be developed here and sent
by special delivery sometime tomor-
row (24th).
"It seems to me that the program
that you outline in your letter should
bring excellent results, and I feel con-
fident that you will be able to carry
out the affair as planned.
"We have one request to make of
those in charge of the flag after it
has been raised. Try to have some
one responsible for its proper hand-
ling, raising in the morning and low-
ering at sundown, lowered entirely
during storms. At this time a small
flag should be substituted in its place.
This is called a storm flag. The vio-
lations of flag regulations in Ann Ar-
bor as well as other cities have been
carried to a most disgusting point
by some of the most prominent or-
ganizations in the city. There is noth-
ing complicated about these regula-
tions, and conformation to same is a
mere elimination of slovenly careless-
"We have noted every item of your
letter and I hardly see that there is
more for me to write at this time.
Any further communications will be
answered to the best of my ability.
"A. C. Wilson."
