According to figures recently com-
piled, during the year ending June 30,
1913, there were 1,107 more patients
registered at the university hospital
than during the previous year or a to-
tal yearly registration of 6,803. This
increase over previous years probably
can be accounted for by the rather ex-
tensive improvements made in the.
hospital plant, whereby not only could
a larger number of patients be accom-
modated, but also better cared for
than at any time previous in the his-
tory of the hospital.
Many From Without State.
Last year patients came from ev-
ery county in the state, while 791
came frot outside of the state.
For the y ar ending June 30, 1913,
the receipts Irom all resources were
$124,928.22, an increase of $26,757.86
over the previous year's record. In
spite of this large sum received from
the patients the cost of conducting a
modern hospital has so increased dur-
itg the past few years, that the run-
titg expenses exceeded the receipts
by saute $t.0,000.
Tise growtis of the university hos-
pital has been phenomenal, and is
largely due to the fact that the people
of the state of Michigan for more than
fifty years have looked to their uni-
versity for medical advice. The pa-
tients come from every county in the
state and many from neighboring stat-
es seeking medical advice from those
in charge of the various departments
of the hospital. Medical and surgical
treatment is free but patients are
charged for room and board. There
is practically no state appropriation
for the support of the hospital, the
university being in the anamalous po-
sition o either making the charges
sutlicient to meet the hospital running
expenses or making up the deficit at
the end of each fiscal year.
A. General Hospital
The university hospital is a general
hospital in every sense of the word
Esery department of nedicine and sur-
gery is represented, and all classes of
patients, even including patients with
contagious diseases, and the acutely
insane, are admitted and treated in its
wards. Every department in the hos-
pital is crowded to the limit, and has
a waiting list of patients seeking ad-
tittance as soon as the beds are emp-
The hospital has been compelled to
increase its capacity by 74 beds divid-
ed as follows: additional beds for chil-
dr' 35 ne contagious liospital, 34,

AUDITORIUM TO HOUSE FIRST
THEATRICAL THIS EVENING
Bill auditoriuni stage will be used
for dramatics tonight for the first time,
when Professor Thomas C. True-
blood's class in Shakespearean read-
ing will present "Twelfth Night" as
a complimentary recital for the gener-
al public. The production was to have
been staged in Sarah Caswell Angall
hall, but an extra demand for seats
notile it necessary for a large building
to be used for the entertainment. The
students who will present the Shakes-
pearian comedy have been working
for the past three weeks on their lin-
es, and the production promises to be
a fi'ng one.
'he cast which will appear in
"Twelfth Night" will be quite similar
in personnel to that which presented
"The Hunchback," in the open air the-
ater, three weeks ago. As is the cus-
tom, followed by Professor Trueblood,
each member of the class will have a
part in the play, and the most efficient
will appear in several parts at differ-
ent times during the course of the
play. By this scheme the audience
is given a chance to see a good array
of talent in action.
Some of the prominent members of
the cast together with the leading part
each will play follow: Mr. E. S. King,
an instructor of oratory in the Michi-
gan Agricultural College, will play the
parts of Malvolia and the Clown. Mr.
Et. R. Townsden will play the part of
the Duke. Mr. R. D. Bracket, head of
the department of oratory of the Mil-
waukee, Wis., high school, will play
the parts of of Sir Toby and the Clown.
Miss Ola E. Fuller, of the Emporia,
Kansas, College, will appear as Maria,
Olivia and a Servant. Miss Amie Fee,
who has had extensive dramatic train-
ing with Professor Trueblood, will ap-
pear in the part of Viola.
Economics Faculty Suffers Sixth Loss
As the sixth to leave the economics
faculty, Mr. H. G. Hayes, who has
served as an instructor during the past
few years, will go as an instructor to
the University of Minnesota.
