The summer school idea is growing with very
great rapidity, and we believe the ye'ar-'round. idea
of education will come nore and more into vogue in
the near future. To attempt to keep pace with the
trend of the times, is only to show a moderate de-
gree of activity. We feel that, eventually, the plan
of summer intercollegiates will come definitely into
being and will become a big part of our summer
college life. Would it not be well for us to begin
consideration of the plan now?
PATRONIZE THE TAP ROOM
Although it is hard to say definitely whether, as
it has been charged, State street confectioners are
really being unfair in the prices asked at their shops,
nevertheless, it certainly is true that a comparison of
their rates with those of the soda bar in the Mich-.
igan Union tap room largely favor the latter. The
Union serves as large or larger dishes than do most'
dealers, uses as good or better materials in their
preparation, and investigations have proved them
to be 'rather unusually careful in the matter of
cleasing their dishes.'
On the whole, we believe the Union to be quite
fair in its charges, considering the quality of the
service. Moreover, the Union is a students' or-
ganization, and, as such, deserves support from its
members in preference to outside dealers.
We talk much of a boycott on local soda Cher-
chants. Perhaps, however, a mere shifting of our
trade to the tap room bar, which is essentially de-
signed for our personal use, would have the same
effect. We know the kind of service we cean get at
the Union, and The Wolverine, at least, is of the
opinion that efforts are being made at the bar to
give full value for money receivsed.

DISAPPEARING COUNTRY DOCTORS
(The Detroit Free Press)
What Dr. Hugh Cabot, dean of the medical facul-
ty at the University, had to say in an interview in,
The Free Press about the practice of medicine in the
country is generally known in a vague way, but
Dr. Cabot puts the problem very clearly.
He says, in effect, that rural communities are not
getting the medical attendance they ought .to have
because medical schools train physicians who can-
not and will not work under the conditions which
confront the country doctor. The student learns
enact methods of diagnosis but to apply them he
needs the help of specialists in well equipped labor-
atories and these he cannot find in the country. If+
it is suggested that the student be trained to do his
own laboratory work the medical school will reply
that the field of medicine has become so broad and
complicated that it is simply impossible for the med-
ical practitioner to learn all that needs to be known
in order to treat the sick intelligently.
That makes a sufficient defense for the medical
school but does not improve conditions itn the
country where, as bir. Cabot points out, the average
age of doctors is something like sixty years. The
old men who established themselves in the country
when medical practice was a simpler matter than it
,is now are staying, but young men are not taking
their places. The result must be a gradual aggrava-
tion of the dearth of country doctors.
There are certain facts which tend to offset this
evil. Transportation is much easier now than it was
when those 6o-year old doctors were 25. Country
people can reach city centers much more easily
than they used to, thanks to electric lines, good
roads and motor cars, and there are more centers
where expert medical advice is to be had than there
were in the past. These ameliorations will
increase with the growth of population but that
process alone cannot be depended upon to cure tlie
trouble which Dr. Cabot points out. Dying people
in remote country districts cannot wait for any such
The obvious 'remedy is to make conditions in the
country suitable for the modern doctor and'that is
being done to some extent through boards of health,
county hospitals and otherwise in various parts of
the country. Ann Arbor is not so large a city that
it would naturally be a medical center, but no phy-
sician would hestitate to open an office. in the vicinity
of Ann Arbor for the University supplies a hospital
and all the expert help any general practitioner
needs. All of the states have institutions aside from
medical schools which might be extended by the ad-
dition of laboratories to which country doctors in the
neighborhood could turn for help. Counties might
be authorized to fill this want but, whatever is done,
the effective impulse must come from the country
itself. Let the farmers make up their minds that'
