MICH.-Camp Bogardus, the universi-
ty sumfner surveying camp, has been
the scene of much excited action dur-
ing the past week in preparation for
the summer's work. Lost luggage,
mosquitoes and rain storms are only
a few of the many incidents which add
to the interest and excitement of camp
life, but with the start of real work
all of these will become incidental.
Nes wAttendanceR ecord Set
This year's attendance of 96 sets a
new record for the camp, and with the
new buildings that are being construc-
ted indications point to the most stlc-
cessful summer in the history of the
camp. Many of the members drove the
16 miles from Cheboygan Saturday,
June 27, through a driving rain storm,
but on Monday the weather liad clear-
ed, and the time was spent in erecting
new tents and arranging the camp.
There are at present 40 tents and 10
small steel houses are to be erected
at once while a new mess tent has
beet already set up. All are equipped
with electric light and other conven-

Dress Doet't Matter,
Most of the men wear khaki shirts
and trousers and high boots or leg-
gings, and anything goes for head-
gear. Some are showing to a marked
extent the lack of the use of a razor
and already IH. E. Carlin, the camy
barber, has been active with the clip-
pers. So far only one accident has oc-
curred, J. B. Smiley having cut his
foot with an axe, which will keep him
out of the work for several days. The
physician has one other patient, how-
ever, one man having caught la grippe
on the trip from Cheboygan.
The edge of the lake has receded
more than 75 feet from its position of
last summer, and the winter stortms
carried the diving tower away and
deposited it on the opposite shore, over
half a mile away. The store which is
run by the camp physician is complete
this year and is much in demand.

One new 30 x 50 building has been

"lealth and efficiency go hand in
hand, and the university faculty is
just waking up to the needs of the stu-
dent body in establishig the health
service," said Dr. fI. H. Cummings in
his lecture on "The University Health
Service" in the physics building yes-
terday. Describing the conditions un-"
der which students labored, he said,
"The body is fighting disease, and the
student is using the body to procure an
educrttimi. Thisa is c <ret import-
ance, and should be recognized by the
teachers. It becomes the duty of the
teachers to advise less strenuous
work, when it is seen that the student
is suffering because of physical or
mental weaknesss."
The wide scope of the work done
by the university health service was
shown by figures compiled to show
the number of cases treated during the
last year. During the college year of
1913-1914, 3,470 different . students
were treated and 300 house calls made.
Dr. Cummings said that these fig-
ures should not be taken to indicate
that Michigan students were Un-
healthy, but that they had taken ad-

it is probable that two performances

Ofitials of the Union have been in

only definite word from the senate was
needed before the negotiations could
be completed. It is expected that the
schedule for the trip will be finished

In closing his lecture, the forests of
Mexico were discussed and a number

Beal commented upon the gift of a great
tract of land by Diaz to Mr. Hearst.
The giving of this an other lands, the
speaker said, was responsible for
much of the dissatisfaction felt by the
common people of Mexico.
