MEETING HEARS GREEN
1il1, President of Naional eafety
Coupcil, Gives The Opening
More than 500 delegates were pres-
ent in Ann Arbor attending the Na-
tional Safety Congress which is be-
ing held here this week. The meet-
Ing has been characterized by vari-
ous gatherings held in Natural Science
auditorium by the different depart-
ments of labor. Last night at the
Union a banquet was held under the
auspices of the Ann Arbor Chamber
of Commerce, for the congress.
The 'banquet which was attended
by about 400 delegates, some with
their wives, represented a gathering
of ien from all the fields of indus-
try in the state of Michigan. Col.
John G. Emery, past national com-
mander of the American Legion, of
Grand Rapids, was the presiding of-
ficer. Addresses were given by Gov-
ernor Fred W. Green, Eugene J. Block
and Chas. E. Hill.
Charles E Hill, vice president of
the national safety council and gene-
ral safety agent of the New York
Central railway gave then opening ad-
dress. Mr. Hill drew a sharp com-
parison between railway accidents and
those of other industries. He com-
pared the casuaties derived from auto
accidents and those from railways.
The fact that the American people
as a whole were careless was the
chief fault to be found as the result of
the great number of acidents occur-
Ing in the United States every day.
Mr. Hill gave some astounding figu-
res in regard to the accident rate in
the United States._ He stated that
here today there are twenty timesas
many deaths due to accident than
there were per day- during the war..
The automobile has brought the prob-
lem of accident to this point and if
the ratio of autos is kept in propor-
tion the death rate in one more decade
will increase to 310,000,000 each year.
Mr. Hill acclaimed.
There are several ways and means
to assist in accident prevention the
speaker said, through education, en-
forcement of laws, cooperation.
Sicentific study of accidents, there
cause, to establish in the people a
sense of responsibility were also
named. Mr. Hill asserted that the
.automobile driVers Were not com-
petent, and compared them with the
engineers of the many locomotives
operated in the country. He said, "The
engineers are examined for mentali-
ty and ability before being allowed to
operate an engine while anyone who
can afford it drives an automobile."
Be suggested that uniform laws should
be set up, that schools should estab-
lish courses in safety regulations and
possible cooperation such as the rail-
roads have between employees might
be reached in the American people as
Mr. Eugene J. Block, chairman of the
State Commission of Labor and In-
dustry spoke on, "What Price Prog-
ress." He outlined the industry of
the middle ages and compared it with
that of modern times. "This great ad-
vance of industry has brought about
the need of safety devices, and acci--
dent prevention must be applied both
biologically and psychologically," Mr.
Brock asserted. Mr. Brock closed by
pledging the aid of the commission
of which he is chairman, to the cause
of the safety council.,
Governor Fred W. Green honored the
meeting with his presence and an ad-
dress in which he enthusiastically1
praised the council for its great work.1
]le stated that .the people of Michi-
gan as a whole were interested and1
hoped for the success of the move-
ment. Gov. Green said, "The maxi-
muum opportunity for men and women
to prosper was the'aim of the govern-
ment of Michigan." The Governor
expressed his pleasure in seeing the
Min of the various industries work-
At the close of registration yester-
day 431 more students had enrolled
for summer work than had registered
for the same period last year, accord-
ing to figures released from the office
of Dean Edward H. Kraus, head of
the Summer session.
The total for this year is 3,500,
1,340 of these are women. The Grad-
uate school has an enr.ollment of 920
and it is expected that more than
1,000 will be registered before the
end of the week. The literary college
is still in first place with 1,159 reg-
The total for last year was only
3,322, which mark has already been
passed this year and it is expected
that the total for this year will run
well over 3,600. It may even reach
the 4,000 mark.
SPECIAL PRGRM OF
Week End Institute Is Experiment for
Benefit of Social Workers of
Michigan and Ohio
SUNDWALL IS IN CHARGE
As a special acquisition to its regu-
lar summer session the University has
this year added the Program of Spe-
cial Public Health Institutes. These
meetings will take place every Friday
and Saturday, starting tomorrow, un-
til the close of the summer session.
The week end institute is in the
nature of an experiment, and is in-
tended primarily for the benefit of
public health workers from the towns
of Michigan and northern Ohio who
find it impossible to attend the regular
Sundwall, Director of the Division of
summer courses in this field. Dr.
Hygiene,- Public Health and Physical
Education, who is in charge of the
Institutes, pointed out that there were
many officials held by duty in their
respective localities for a great part
of the year, but who could easily man-
age to attend several of the meetings.
It is expected that there will be an
attendence of at least fifty at each
meeting. Because of the fact that
this is the first time anything of this
kind has been attempted, the enroll-
jnent will undoubtedly be smaller
than in the future, for there is no
doubt of its feasibility.
Due to the great experiment involv-
ed in the Institutes, its action and re-
sults will be watched with great in-
terest by others and particularly by
the United State Department of
Health, Dr. Sundwal stated.
