Two Systems Connected at Bogardus
Two Students Called Home by
Fathers' Deatihs
TOPINABEE, MICH,--The Bogardus
engineering camp has conected its tri
angulation surveying system with the
United States Lake Survey system, is
reconnaisance of the iland route, thus
enabling the camp to check latitudes
and longitudes, and to tie the local
surveys with those of the government.
Quite a gloom was thrown over the
camp last week when telegrams an-
nounced the sudden deaths of the fath-
ers of Harry J. Bill, Detroit, and V. F.
Spring, Hudson, Mich. The two men
left for their homes immediately.
Dr. C. B. Stauffer reports that the
health of the camp is excellent. The
sanitary committee, composed of three
parties and the camp physician, makes
a daily inspection of the beach and the
camp in general. Fish washed ashore
are buried.
A bonfire was touched off by faculty
men in camp last Friday, at which
time the campers assembled, sang
Michigan songs, and listened to a talk
by Prof. C.T. Johnston. Regular affairs
of this kind wil be held during the re-
mainder of the camp period.
Among the recent camp improve-
ments are two steel tents, concrete
floors in five tents and an engine room.
The tents are 14 feet square with walls
six feet high, covered with galvanized
iron. A water main has been extended
200 feet, making water much more eas-
ily procured. Within a few days the
new hospital will be erected, but as
yet there are no patients to occupy it.
Samples of water from the new camp
well, examined in Ann Arbor, show
that it is absolutely pure.
The mess committee reports that it
was able to feed the entire camp of
120 people for the first three weeks at
$10.50 per man, which includes entire
expenses of cooking and kitchen help.
Edward C. Hasse, 14E, one of the
teaching assistants, has been called to
Great Falls, Montana, to enter the re-
demption service of the government.
Ills place on the teaching sttaff is fill-
ed by A. A. Anderson, '4E.
Engineering Faculty Man Has Opera-
tion i Grand Rapids
Prof. L. M. Gram, of the engineering
departnment, who was strikein with an
attack of acute appendicetis in Grand
Rapids Saturday, was operated on at
Butterworth hospital Tuesday morn-
ing. Latest reports isdicate that he
will recover rapidly from the opera-
Mrs. Gram, who was in New Jersey
at the time of her husband's attack,
reached Grand rapids Sunday night.
At first it was deemed advisable to re-
move Professor Gram to Ann Arbor,
and perform the operation here, but
Monday an immediate operation was
found necessary.

The trip, wbich the students in
course 3a landscape design were to
take to Detroit last week, wil be taken
tomorrow if good weather continues.
The party will observe and study the
various flower and shrub arrange-
ments to be found in the different
parks, and Professor Tealdi invites
anyone to go who is interested in the
dierent phases of home ground devel-
opment. The party will leave at 6:56
on the Michigan Central.
Ten Laws Enter Second Semester
Ten new students have enrolled in
the second semester of the law depart-
ment, making a total of 223 for both
semesters, in comparison to a total of
195 for last year
Visitor's night at the observatory
yesterday brought out 150 curious in-
dividuals between 7:30 and 10:30'
o'clock. Everyone was allowed to look
at the moon through the 12-inch re-
fracting telescope, and all were told
where the volcanoes, plains and seas
were located.
Professor Curtiss and his assistants
answered all manner of questions re-
garding the solar system, and dem-
onstrated the various apparatuses andI
their specific use. After observing the
moon, the reflecting telescope provedI
most interesting. The assistant in
charge explained that it is used mostlyc
for photographic and spectoscopic
work, and turned on the current to
show the violet sparks in the spectro-
Many were disappointed in not be-t
ing able to observe the different stars,c
but as the time was limited and thec
crowd large, the moon was all thatt
could be observed.
The observatory will be open again
tonight and tomorrow night at 7:30I
o'clock. There are still a few tickets
left, and students may secure them by

Dr. Darling Believes Disappointments
Are Often Agents for Development
of Disease
"Nothing in the cancer points to in-
heritance of the disease, but there is
something in the history of each pa-
tient to prove that melancholy life
has something to do with its forma-
tion" said Dr. C. B. Darling of the
medical faculty, in his lecture Tuesday
night on "Present views concerning
the Causation and Curability of Can-
cer." He added that "a great deal of
hard work, loss of friends, worries
and disappointments, have much to do
with its causation."
"Absolute cleanliness of person," he
said, "and a yearly examination by a
competent person are the sure means
of reducing the death rate, for in my
practice I have not yet a single case
that showed cancer of the mouth, that
did not show the signs of lack of care.
It is rare that a man who uses a tooth
brush has a cancer of the mouth.
There is only one sure cure for cancer
and that is operative, but only in the
early stages, otherwise we cannot do
much for it."
In the matter of prevention Dr. Dar-
ling stirred his audience when he said:
"Often the cancer is developed from
an irritation of the skin, from warts or
small Dmoles on the surface of the
body; such warts and moles should be
removed, and in this way a great num-
ber pf cancers could be prevented. We
may never discover the cause of can-
cer, but we have discovered a way to
prevent its development and that is
through the knife. Every year there
are as many or more deaths from can-
cer than from tuberculosis."
He concluded by urging everybody
to help to get homes for incurable
cancer patients; for in such homes
every effort is made to take the pa-
tients mind off his suffering, and make
his life more comfortable. Such hom-
es ought to be plentiful," he said.
Professor Carl O. Sauer, of the geol-
ogy department, will leave with a par-
ty of students and their friends for a
day's outing and sightseeing at Put-
in-Bay Island at 6:07 o'clock Saturday
morning. Although the trip has beent
planned primarily for students 'of
physiography, any one who wants to
avail himself of this opportunity7
to see the features of interest on the
island, or to have a pleasant outing,
is asked to join the party. A specialt
round trip rate of $1.60 from Ann Ar-
bor, via. the Michigan Central and
steamer "Put-in-Bay" from Detroit to
the island has been secured. 1
Aside from the 120-mile lake trip,t
he island of Put-in-Bay presents many
points of special interest. It is known
historically as the stopping-place of
Commodore Perry during the war ofc
1812. A large monument is being
erected in honor of Perry on the isl-
and at the present time. Geologically,
he three different kinds of caves, the
presence of well-marked glacial groov-
ngs, and the study of wave action int
utting cliffs, are features of specialt
mportance. These features will beE
leseribed to members of the party onc
he ground.c

Many have already signified their7
ntention of taking the trip. Those who
have not left their names and would]
ike to join the party should see Prof.1
Sauer or Mr. Perkins in the museum4
building, first floor; at once. 4
