Self-Government Better'
A group of educated natives 'in I'n-
a has been growing larger and more
phatic In its desire for sef-govern-
snt, Professor Cross stated. They
ve felt that self-gpvernment is bet-
- than good government by a for-
pn power. This discontent was
irked on before the war by German
)pagandists, but most of the natives
nained full of enthusiasm for the
itish cause. More than 1,400,000
dians were in the imperial army be-
'e the close of the conflict. Money
s available at any time the British
vernment wanted to borrow.
'he natives began to take up Wood-
Wv Wilson's theory of self-determin-
on, the speaker said. Extremists
o wanted to resort to violence com-
cated the situation. The Moham-
Haan eiement feared encroachment

Committee in Charge Labors Hard to
Make Coming Convention
Work in preparation for the Chinese
convention, which will be held here
during the first4 week of September,
is progressing satisfactorily, according
to those in charge.
The committee of the conference
has been laboring hard to insure suc-
cess 'of the meeting. A meeting was
held in Lane hall last Thursday, 1
when reports of the various sub-com-
mittees weee given and plans discuss-
ed. It was decided to incorporate
some new features in the plans for+
the conference, which will be an-
nounced later.
100 Plan Attending
So far 100 persons have signified
their intention of attending the con-
ference, 40 of whom have filled out
the blanks in application for subsidy,
which is for those who cannot pay
all of their expensestto Ann Arbor.
The officers report that this is as
good if not better than they expected,
as it. was thought that the incresed
railroad fares and the late summer
schools in many of the colleges of the
country would keep many away. ,
Quite a number of townspeople will
be invited to the conference as guests,
and all meetings will be open to Am-t
ericans, as it is wished to strengthen1
the bond as much as possible between1
the United States and China. Freder-
ick W. Stevens, a representative of
the consortium for China, will attend
the convention. -The consortium is al
group of American, British, French,
and Japanese bankers, who lend#
money to China for its development.
Mr. Stevens has been invited to ad-
dress the conference.

Of Invaluable Aid to Medicine, He
Says; Public Views it as N4velty
Classing the field of X-ray work as
spectacular and intriguing and say-
ing that although the X-ray is not
infallible in diagnostic work, it has
nevertheless been of invaluable aid,
.Dr. J. G. Van Zwaluwenburg, of the
University Medical school, delivered
an address on "The Relation of the X-
ray to Modern Medical Methods,"
Tuesday night in the Natural Science
Viewed as Novelty
The fact that the X-ray has been
viewed by the public as a novelty and
because it is spectacular both to med-
ical men and, laymen, its progress has
suffered to some extent, is the claim
of Dr. Van Zwaluwenburg, who also
contends that this same glamoftr is a
hindrance in evaluating the real worth
of the X-ray. To give some idea of
the actual assistance rendered by it,

he had a number of pictures cast upon
the screen, explaining the character-
istics of each.
Dr. Van Zwaluwenburg demonstra-
ted of what value the X-ray is in a
wide range of cases; chiefly fractures,
deformations, extraneous growths,
lodged bullets, broken-off surgical
needles, bad teeth, articles swallow-
ed accidentally, tuberculosis, oancers,
heart trouble, and stomach diseases.
Initial Work Confined
The initial work of radiograms, ac-
cording to the speaker, was largely
confined to fracture cases where the
radio-pictures were of invaluable aid
in revealing the nature of the break,
the relation of the broken parts, dis-
placement, interposition of tissue, or
extra fragments. That the X-ray
quickly removes all doubt as to wheth-,
er the trouble is congenital or not and
that it often demonstrates that sup-
posed cases of rheumatism are in.
reality afflictions brought about by
foreign bodies creeping into the joints,
were assertions of Dr. Van Zwaluwen-'
The most revealing pictures to the
lay eye were those showing lodged
rifle ,bullets, shot or swallowed art-
icles of metallic nature. The radio-
gram is of great aids in these cases in
getting the exact location of the art-
icle, said the speaker. An interesting
case of a broken-offdental needle was
s own.


Examination hours must be rigidly
adhered to nd no exceptions to the
schedule are' to be made, said Prof.
E. H. Kraus, dean of the Summer ses-
sion. Students, who do not take the
examinations at the specified hours,
will be given an X or an incomplete
in the course, according to the Uni-
versity rules on this matter. '
Providing that a suitable reason
can be given, the student can make up
this examination within a month aft-
er the beginning of the next semest-
ter of his residence, but if the work is
not dne by this time, it lapses into
an E.

tained in the Summer sessoin bulletin
