Ann Arbor One of Few Cities to Be
Included in Summer
For the first time in two seasons,
John 'Philip Sousa and his band are
to be heard in a limited number of ci-
ties on a brief tour, and Ann Arbor
is fortunate enough to be one of the
included cities. The band will be
heard here next Thursday night, July
25, in Hill auditorium.
Largest Band to Travel
During these two seasons, Mr. Sou-
sa, with the great organization that
has been heard in more than 17,000
concerts over most of the civilized
world, has confined his concerts to
the spectacular New York Hippo-
drome show during its long stay in
New York, and to the few cities hav-
ing the requisite seating and stage
capacity. The organization is in the
complete form of the largest band
that has traveled, with all the not-
ed soloists and accompanying vocal-
Sousa has done what no other
American composer has yet achieved,
for he has expressed the national
spirit, and has taken the over-taxed
medium of march music and vitalized
it, making it dynamic with energy,
and irresistibly infectious. His fam-
ous band presents his music to his
audiences in a peculiarly Sousa style
and the performances of the classic
numbers on his programs are also
imbued with the Sousa spirit. The
soloists who will appear in Ann Ar-
bor are up to the usual high stand-
ard of this organization. They will
be Miss Marjorie Moody, soprano and
Miss Ruby Helder, who possesses a
rare tenor voice.
Ticket Sale Friday
The band is being brought to Ann
Arbor through the efforts of S. A.
Moran of the Arcade theater, and 15
.per cent. of the proceeds will go to
the Ann Arbor Red Cross. Tickets
for the concert will go on sale July
19, at Wahr's book store, Calkin's
drug store on South University ave-
nue, and at the Arcade theater.
Methodist Chorus Rehearses
The young peoples' chorus of the
Methodist church, under the direction
of Miss A. Grace Johnson, will re-
hearse in the church Saturday even-
ing at 7 o'clock. All Methodist men in
the detachment who have sung are
invited to join the chorus.

o'clock Friday afternoon in Barbour

planned by the Xeague during the
regular college year.
Speakers for the summer confer-
ence are Marjorie Delevan, who will
speak on educational work in con-
nection with the social service de-
partment in the State Board of
Health, and Melita Hustzel, whose
topic will be The Girls' Protective

also will talk, giving a summary of
the various kinds of positions in
which he has been able to place girls,

Old Fashioned CongregatIal Singing
Thrills Audience; Detachment
(By Cordelle Remper)
Real old fashioned congregational
patriotic singing was the attraction
last night at Hill auditorium, and ev-
erybody had a patriotic soul stirring
time. Great enthusiasm marked the
concert from the beginning. For the
first number Theodore Harrison led
the audience in the singing of the
"Star Spangled Banner," and the "Bat-
tle Hymn of the Republic." Earl V.
Moore accompanied on the organ.
Mr. Robert Dieterle then sang an
aria from "Zaza," by Leoncavallo, and
was received in the usual enthusias-
tic way. "Keep the Home Fires Burn-
ing," and "Pack Up Your Troubles,"
followed, with Mr. Dieterle singing the
verse and the audience and men from
the detachment coming in on the chor-
Mr. Moore played "Dawn" from
"Summer Sketches," by Lemare, a
most beautiful organ composition.
The opening represents the stillness of
early morning. Then comes the awak-
ening after the dawn. After, came
"Mid-summer Caprice," a light airy
waltz by Johnson, with a very at-
tractive theme. It was followed by one
of Mr. Moore's own compositions.
"Revery at Twilight." It is a charm-
ing composition, and was played by a
master at the instrument.
Mr. Dieterle delighted his audience
again with "Allah," by Kramer, "Just
You," by Burleigh, and "Invictus," by
Huhn. The concert was closed by the
singing of "America" by the audience.
The making of a man o' warsman
and the training of officers, will be the
subject shown 'in two reels of the
movie tonight in the Natural Science
auditorium The remainder of the pic-

tur6 will show the making of a Ford'
'automobile. During the entire sum-
mer session an educational motion
picture will be substituted for a lecture
every Thursday evening.

Majority of Dairymen Comply with
Sugestions From Local Board
of Health
Only two dairy men employ ice to
cool milk after milking, according to
the information supplied by Mack
Ryan, of the local board of health,
and Captain B. E. Vaughan, of the
training detachment.
An inspection was made of more
than 80 diaries in and around Ann Ar-
bor last week, and the final results
prove that the milk men have a fairly
high sanitation record. This inspec-
tion did not include the local depots
or creameries
In the majority of cases well water
was employed to cool milk, and ac-
cording to the inspectors, this is insuf-
ficient during the hot weather, for well
water does not entirely eliminate the
bacteria in the milk. Ice is the best
method thus far known to kill the
bacteria germs.pThe bacteria count of
the milk inspected by the two dairy-
men using ice to cool the milk at
night, was much lower than that of the
remainder of the dairies.
Surroundings Unsanitary
The lots and surroundings of the
dairies were found to be unsanitary,
but nearly all of the cowsheds were in
fair condition. Fly sources were com-
mon, and the dairymen were requested
to remove the sources of containtna-
tion. As a whole the hygenic condi-
tions were bad, but the stock was well
The cows were milked by hand in
the majority of cases, and the inspect-
ors found that most of the cows were
not well groomed. .Before milking
they were usually covered with the
filth of the field, and as a result, the
bacteria frequently dropped into the
milk during the milking. In order to
insure clean milk it is necessary to
have clean cows.
Milk Houses Are Clean
An inspection was made of the milk
houses, where the milk is kept after
milking, and the inspectors discovered
that the sanitary conditions were good.
There was a great deal of manure
around lots. This was due to the scar-
city of labor and the inability of the
farmer to keep things as sanitary as
they should be. Another cause was
the approach of the harvest season
and the divided attention of the farm-
er between the crops and the cows.
The inspectors made some sugges-
tions, and every one of the dairymen,
with the exception of one or two,
agreed with the authorities and clean-
ed up the places.
Farmer Prohibited to Sell
One farmer was prohibited to send
his milk to Ann Arbor. After the sec-
ond day his premises were entirely
cleaned up, and the authorities ap-
proved of his measures, thereby per-
mitting his milk to come to the city.
At the present time there is not a
single dairyman not complying to the
regulations and requirements and
sending in milk
The result of the examinations and
suggestions made, which were approv-
ed by the dairy owners, have been sat-
isfactory. The most the local board
requested the dairymen to do was to
clean the cowsheds, sweep the cobwebs
from the ceilings and the walls, and
clean up the yards.
Inspection Once a Month
In a short while the entire num-

ber of dairies around Ann Arbor will
be in first class condition. There will
be an inspection by the local board of
health once a month. Everything will
