3 Secretary of University Gives Lecture
on Finances of Insti-
. ttuion
"The man who enters upon the busi-
ness administration of any public in-
t stitution with the sole idea of keep-
s ing the taxes down is deceiving the
s people," said Secretary Shirley Smith
r yesterday afternoon in his lecture on
" A Business Administration" in the
auditorium of the New Science build-
Speaking of the income of the Uni-
e versity he said, "The chief source of
income ofrthe University of Michigan
fis the real property tax of three-
eighths of a mill on the dollar. A
few years ago the board of equaliza-
tion, usurping the privileges of the
1 legislature, decided that this tax
_ should be on the values as assigned
in the apportionment among the sev-
eral counties of the state, instead of
the actual cash or assessed value.
This was done to keep the income of
i the University stationary, rather than
allow it to benefit by the increase in
- property values, in spite of the fact
that the University's needs had in-
"In the year 1915-16 the two Michi-
gan institutions, the University and
the Agricultural college, received from
the state approximately $1,510,000, an
average of $185 per student. In the
same period Iowa's two schools re-
ceived $2,530,000, an average of $338
per student, and Minnesota an average
of $218 per student. In short, Michi-
gan, with an enrollment of full time
pupils from 350 to 1,325 greater than
any of the neighboring states gives
less to her institutions than any of

Stores and Quartersmaster's duties. A

New York, July 16.-Michigan's re-
turn to the western collegiate confer-
ence is likely to have a marked effect
upon eastern college football sched-
ules when the gridiron game is re-
sumed here in the fall. Because of
Michigan's isolated position it has
been necessary to rely on several big'
games each season from eastern col-
leges and universities. The Wolver-
ines have played against Pennsylvania.
Cornell, Syracuse and Harvard in re-
cent years and in every case the foot-
ball pupils of Fielding Yost have prov-
ed to be strong attractions and op-
If Michigan follows the custom of
the other conference colleges these
yearly intersectional gridironcontests
will have to be dropped. In the case
of Cornell, Pennsylvania and Syra-
cuse, it will require considerable
search to find an opponent capable
of filling the breach made by the with-
drawal-of Michigan.

The Proper Shade to Wear with Uniforms
Before deciding to stock the Herman Army Shoe, I compared samples from the majority
of factories making army shoes, and found the shoe making on Herman'S to be of a higher
order, in additiom to having superior fitting qualities. Further investigation re-
vealed the fact from enlisted men and officers who have been in the ser-
vice for years, that the army shoe of Herman make wore better than any of the other
I also want to call your especial attention to the fact that, unfortunately, an extremely small
proportion of the shoes on sale as U. S. Army Shoes are made over the genuine
"Munson" last, nor have the patterns the correct measures so essential to
absolute satisfaction. If you will try on all the others first and then come to us we
can show you the difference very quickly.
