Poles, French, and Germans Fought in
Ranks of Washington's Con-
tinental Armies,
How the different people In the
American colonies helped the flag of
freedom to float over the United States
was shown by Prof. W. W. Florer of
the German department in his illus-
trated lecture delivered Tuesday even-
ing in the Natural Science building on
"The American Revolution."
Starting with a picture of the first
liberty tree in the American colonies
Professor Florer traced the progres of
the social desire for independence.
The pictures he showed in connection
with his lecture were most interesting
ones. Some were drawn by artists
present on the field of battle. The pic-
tures of the buildings shown were all
old and authentic cuts of the condi-
tions of the time.
The blockade of Boston harbor, Sam-
uel Adams, Peter Faneuil, and the
hall which he donated for the cause
of liberty, were all shown in the slides.
Then the battle of Bunker Hill with
its position on the map were demon-
strated by Professor Florer.
Then came scenes of famous build-
ings, such as the old hotel at Provi-
dence, Rhode Island, where the Dec-
laration of Independence was first
In the concluding portion of the lec-
ture Professor Florer showed how the
many European nations had helped us
in the war. The names of Baron Von
Stueben, LaFayette, and Count Pulaski
ale among the most familiar.
Robert L. Warren, '66L, Prominent
Newspaper Man, Passes
Away Tuesday.
Robert. L. Warren, '66L, father of
the capitalist, Charles B. Warren, of
Detroit, and one of the most promi-
nent Ann Arbor citizens, died here
Tuesday night. Robert Warren has
been a newspaper man, soldier and
lawyer of high ability. Twelve years
ago he came to Ann Arbor from Char-
lotte where h had been an editor.
Here he edited and published the Ann
Arbor Times until its merging with the
Ann Arbor News.
Mr. Warren has been commander
of the local chapter of the G. A. R.,
and has been a member of the Ma-
sonic lodge. He served both as a sol-
dier and as an officer in the Union
army during the Civil war.
Charles Warren, of Detroit, his son,
prominent state corporation lawyer
and politician, was in New York City
at the hour of his father's death. He
was immediately notified by long dis-
tance telephone and all arrangements
for the funeral were held over until
his arrival. Mrs. L. Ware, of Evanston,
Ill., is the only other surviving child
of the deceased..
Robert Warren has been identified
during, his long career with newspa-
pers in Bay City, Albion, Decatur,
Charlotte and other cities in the state.
He was born in Caledonia, Shiawasse

county, December 2, 1842. His par-
ents were Samuel N. and Anna K.
Warren, the former a native of Ver-
mont, and the latter of the state of
New York. The father died in 1904

was in the wilds of early Michigan
where tribes of Indians were still in
abundance. A few months after hisl

Dr. Drury Reports Chief Ailments of
Summer Are Insect Bites
and Black Flies.
A medical report recently received
by the University health service from
Dr. Charles P. Drury, who is acting as
camp physician for the students of
Camp Davis and the Biological station
this summer, stated that in the period
between June 20 and August 1, 351
engineers and 66 biological students
had been treated by him. Treatments
were chiefly given for cuts, muscle
strains, abrasions, insect bites, sun-
burn, ivy poison, and other ailments
common to camp life. Dr. Drury re-
ports the camps in excellent condition
and says that while the thermometer
has risen to 104 F. during the day,
it has never fallen beflow 890 F. at
night, a very unusual thing for the
camp. There have been no heat pros-
trations this summer and the only
thn to mar the happiness of camp
life are the thousands of black flies
and mosquitoes, which are very plenti-
ful this summer.

Professor David Friday Lectures Be-
fore Students on "Culture
and Efficiency."
"Michigan taxes are on the upward
trend and will continue in that di-
rection," said Prof. David Friday in
his lecture on "Culture and Efficiency"
in the Natural Science building Tues-
day afternoon.
"Although taxes have increased to
a remarkable degree in the last 10
years, this advance is not in any way
comparable with what it will be in
the future. Those who say that the
taxes in this state will decrease in-
stead of remaining at the total col-
lected last year, or even going above
.hat point, are talking in the wind. This
increase cannot be credited to, the
growing University appropriations,.for
these are only one-sixth of the to-
Professor Friday's lecture was .a
discussion of the relationship of cul-
ture and efficiency in the university
curriculum, comparing the purely cul-
tural courses with those of engineering
and economics. He laid especial stress
on the importance of the study of busi-
ness administration. He pointed out
that the two most important peases
of the development of gndustrial so-
ciety in late years are the great in-
crease in the individual output, and the
development of the conception of
equality of opportunity which is due
to our modern democracy.. Although
the output per capita has increased
three or four times over 101 years
ago, the social dividend is insufficient
to satisfy the wants of society. As a
result, the matter of industrial tech-
nique is' nt alone adequate for the
solution of the problem; it has become
a question of organization which only
the specialist trained in a particular
field can solve intelligently.
In the field of Justice and equity,
in questions of public control, prob-
lems have arisen which call for the
university-trained expert. The prob-
lems of taxation, railroad regulation,
and countless others relating intimate-
ly to the public welfare must be un-
dertaken by men of this stamp if they
are to be adjusted in the best way.
But efficiency and increased tech-
rique are not enough. Some schools
of business administration do not real-
ize that- efficiency in itself will lead
only to materialism.
The true value of efficiency is meas-
ured in its cultural ideal. In this
light strictly economic problems may
be regarded as cultural questions in
themselves. Just as labor problems
require an idealization of society for
their proper solution, so the greatest
need of modern society is an idealiza-
tion of industrial efficiency.
The hnnual summer concert of the
Choral union, directed by Kenneth N.
Westerman, was given last evening in
Hill auditorium before a large and
appreciative audience. The soloist of
the evening, Miss Ada Grace Johnson,
pleased the audience with her excel-
lent rendition of Mendelssohn's As-
the Heart Pants," which is particular-
ly suited to Miss Johnson's rich flow-
ing voice.
The singing of the four leaders of
the chorus, Horace L. Davis, first

tenor; Odra Patton, second tenor;
Walter Scott Westerman, first bass,
and George Cantrick, second tenor,
was in perfect harmony, and together
with background furnished by the
singing of the chorus, made the con-
cert one of the most enjoyable of the

Michigan. But never can it fill the
emptiness left by those crumbled old
bricks and tangled dead vines." And
then the chimes will interrupt your
reverie, and you will turn away with
a sigh.
8-Hour Day Proposed as Settlement
Washington, Aug. 17. - President
Wilson today completed a definite plan
for settlement of the threatened nation-
wide railroad strike, and will submit
it to representatives of the managers
and employes tomorrow. Administra-
tion officials said negotiations would
be continued until a peaceful solution
was found.
The proposal framed by the presi-
dent following conferences with the
managers and employes since Monday
morning is that the railways should
concede the eight-hour work day, with
an agreement that it will be observed.
Later it probably will be proposed that
a federal commission, appointed by
the president or created by congress,
investigate all problems which have
arisen during the present discussion.
