inical Laboratory Conducts
'est On Steel Automobile Wheels

A physical test to determine the re-
lative strength of wooden and steel
automobile wheels is at present being
conducted in the mechanical laborator-
ies of the University. The work, which
S is being done for the Jefferson Forge
company, of Detroit, is under the di-
rection of Walter E. Lay, professor of
mechanical engineering. The test is
of special interest because if it can
be demonstrated that the steel wheel
) does not "fatigue" faster than the
wooden one, much of the danger of
b our exhausting our supply of second
growth hickory will be eliminated.'
A set of specially constructed steel
automobile wheels fitted to an old
Ford car is undergoing a severe test.
The car is braced so that it cannot
move, the rear wheels being allowed
y to turn naturally at an average speed
of 25 miles an hour on two large wood-
sen wheels, constructed so that the
rims are on a level with the floor.
Bumps in the form of cleats on the
rims of the two wooden wheels make
the strain and wear 'greater than that
s found on ordinary roads. So severe is
the shaking the car receives that it
has -been necessary to install a com-
plete set of wiring .and also a new
L commutator. Before the test on the
- wooden wheels acan begin it will be
necessary to rebuild the car. One set-
g of tires and the best part of a second
set will be worn out .before the re-
quired 25,000 miles is traversed.
Looking into the futur and seeing
I that some substitute must be found

for the wooden automobile wheels, the
Jefferson Forge company have put
forth their efforts to make steel wheels
that substitute. It is known that steel
under excessive strain will "fatigue,"
that is it will become brittle and
break easily.
"This test," says Professor Lay, "is
to determine just how much strain
steels will stand, then by testing wood-
en wheels in the like manner, the com-
parative physical sterngth and endur-
ance will be determined. Should the
steel wheel compare favorably, then
we need look no further for a sub-
So extensive in Michigan and so im-
portant to the state'is the automobile
industry that all research work that
can possobly be done at the University'
is accepted in the cramped quarters of
the mechanical laboratory.


Says the Disease Results from De-
struction of Normal Cell

"Cancer, one of the most remarka-
ble phenomena in the whole patholog-
ical world, is not due to a parasite
but to a destructin of the normal cell
organization," said Prof. A. S. Warth-
in, of the Medical school, in his lec-
ture Tuesday night in the Natural
Science auditorium. "The cancericell
itself is one of a group of growths
called neo-plasms and we cannot de-
termine its fundamental cause until
we, learn the principles of cell
Professor Warthin -started with a,
short history of the processes through
which the normal cells pass after
leaving the ovum stage. Each cell1
has its own individual life but is
completely subservient to the social
and common organization of the body.
Long Continued Irritation
"It is when the normal function of
the cells is overthrown. by an exte-
rior force, such as long continued ir-
ritation of a certain tissue or gland,
that the neo-plasm or the more par-
ticular form of, neo-plasm, cancer,'
sets in," he said. The cancer cells,
ceasing to be agents in the body's
system, take all the nutrition from
adjoining tissues.
The cause of cancer, according toc
Professor Warthin, Is obscure except
for certain accompanying circum-
stances that have been observed to be
invariable. The tendency to cancer
has now been proven to be inherita-{

Camp Davis, July 20.-The ball game

*. last Saturday between the camp team
ge and Bay View was the big event of
Ce the past week. The team, together
y with 15 br 20 rooters left camp early
e Saturday morning for Bay View to
Ip take on the fast aggregation "from that
11 city. The camp nine took the lead
early in the contest and held the large
to end of the score during the entire
game. This makes the second win for
r Camp Davis this season, and from all
available records that is the best
al sho'wing made in some years.
se Field day or visitors' day, the big-
nt gest event in the camp program is to
n be held Saturday of this week. A fine
e program is being arranged under thej
-g direction of "Red" McCordic, '22E;
'h "Bum" Tramp, '23E, "Chick' Wattles,
24E, and "Milt" Goetz, '22E.
Two of the camp members met with
as an accident today. Harry Lifsit, 21E,
- is hobbling around on crutches-owing
Of to the fact that he tried :to amputate
a toe with an axe. His partner, George'
) Emery, '22E, got careless with the
e- same axe and cut a gash above his
e- knee. The boys admit they wanted a
m. vacation but are not just satisfied with
the way they got it.

After having completed the regu-
iar nursing course in some university
or school, the prospective public
health nurse is required to take a
post-graduate course of one year, the
speaker explained. Her courses con-
sist of the principles of health nurs-
ing, the rudiments of sociology, psych-
ology, and public speaking; together
with special courses in hygiene and
sanitation. Economics and bacteriol-
ogy are sometimes substituted for two
of these courses. Equipped in this
way, the nurse is sent to a small dis-
trict where she may acquire a prac-
tbcal knowledge of the subject.
In order to be a successful health
nurse the girl must be possessed of
many fine qualiities, said Professor
Bartlett. Among these are good
technique, excellent ability, an alert
mind, the -ability to teach, social vi-
sion, sane judgment, and most impor-
tant of all - tact. She must be ready.
to give herself to her work at any,
time, her hours are not specifified
ones. She must be ready to solve
many problems instantly.
When her treatment of the sick per-
son is over, it is the duty of the,
health nurse to turn her mind to the
attention of the mother of the home-
to tell her how to care for the pa-
tient, and above all to educate her in
the' rudimentary principles of keep-
ing herself and her family well. In
this respect the health nurse is &
public officer as well as a mere bed-
side nurse.
As the first part of the work to be
undertaken in the nev' building pro-
gram of the University, it is announc-
ed that a $100,000 addition to the pres-
ent Dental building will be built, the
work to be begun as soon as conditions
will permit.
The enlargement to the Dental build-
ing will be 38 feet wide and 167 feet
in length, and will contain a quantity
of new equipment, for the) purchase
of which an additional $100,000 has
been set aside. Included in - the new
equipment will be 114 dental chairs.

With material for three acts already
secured and with preparations for four
others well under way, arrangements,
are nearing completion for the Mich-
igan Union Summer Spotlight vaude-
ville, to be presented Thursday eve-
ning, July 28, in Hill auditorium, ac-
cording to iFrank McPhail, '21, 'en-
eral chairman for phe entertainment
Howard E. Ramsay, '21E, will give
a monologue as the first act on the
program, his talks being a well known
feature of past campus entertainments.
His sketch will be given partly .in
the Scotch dialect.
Robert Dieterle, '24M, another Mich-
igan favorite at vaudeville perform-
ances, has been secured to give a solo
act. He will sing a number of college
and popular songs.
The third entertainer whose act has.
been accepted by the committee Is
Max B. Jaslow, '21, whose skit will
be a dramatie monologue. Jaslow has
appeared at other camnus entertaih-
ments and made a marked impression
with his dramatic ability. He has also
participated in a number of profession-
al performances..
Although it is planned to have a
totalof seven acts on this year's pro-
gram, the committee expects the en-
tire performance to last not more than
an hour and a quarter.
