Commends Work Of Those In Charge
Of Refugee Camps Who Aided
Supplying Food and Clothing
"There is much apprehension about
pestilence and a great deal of anxiety
about distase following the flood," said
Dr. L. L. Lumsden, M.D., surgeon in
the United States Public Health ser-
vice, in a special lecture yesterday
afternoon fob the Public Health work-
ers. Dr. Lumsden states that a town
is usually healthier or at least as
healthy after a flood.
Comends Workers ,,
"Those who had charge of the re-
fugee camps deserve a great deal of
commendation," he continued. The
public health workers and Red Cross
provided food, clothes and lodging for
15,000 to 20,000 persons applying
within 12 to 15 hours. Everyone was
vaccinated, the cry being, "No vac-
cinate, no eat." There was very little
sickness, one camp having only six
cases out of 19,000.
Dr. Lumsden pointed out that an-
other time of danger is in the first
two weeks after the refugees return
home. Much work has been done and
is being done to prevent typhoid and
malaria. He predicts that the next
twelve months will show better health
in the flood area than has been known'
in the past, although the economic
condition will naturally be more se-
Discusses Epidemiology
Dr. Lumsden then discusses epime-
miology,. particularly in the field of*
typhiod fever. "Every year there is
additional knowledge given us which1
is of inestimable value in epidemio-
logy," said Dr. Lumsden. He dis-
cussed the routes of infection of ty-
phoid, stating that typhoid comes from
persons only, and is a verj variable
disease clinically. After telling of
several of the investigations carried
on by the United States Public Health,
service, Dr. Lumsden concluded by
saying that "sanitation means using
feasable, common-sense means of
breaking up the line of infection be-
tween the carrier and other persons."

nounced before medals will be given
to he winner and runner up of the
singles and to the winners of the
doubles. A change has been made in
he arrangements for playing, in-
stead of playing only on the courts
at Ferry field, the matches may be
played off on any field in the city, it
was announced.
The following is the list of the
matches for the first singles to be
Toevs, Williams; Grossman, Moore;
Cortenius, George Rich; Wing, Cor-

be played off at once.
The second group of singles is as;
follows: Richelson, Theley; Humpli-
reys, Whale; Van Cleve, Livingstone;
Benson, Nagel; Marsh, Diack; Craw-,
ford, Rogvoy; these can be played any
time within a feasible length of time.

There wil be a score card with the
results of the matches posted in Geo.

A ddress Before Men's' Edueationalf
G'rub is On English Colleges; t
Two Nations Compared
"England is a wonderful nation oft
honesty, of integrity, and of cleara
grit. She is too fixed for America to'
worry about any revolution. Nowhere
can dne find two nations more sup-_
plementary to each other than are
America and England. America rep-'
resents the 'new, England the old."
Thus, Regent Junius Beal, of the Uni-
versity, summed up his discourse last
evening on "Some Thoughts About
English Universities" which was de-
livered before the Men's Educational1
club at the Union.
Regent Beal stated that it all de-
pends upon your point of view andE
upon how much you know about the
subject whether you will criticize or
commend the English universities. To
his md he found them favorable and
in many ways similar to their Amer-
can prototypes.
The program of the evening was
opened by group singing, and then]

Professor Kruyt Has Great Admiration
For Our University System, He Declares

"I have a great admiration for the
American university system," stated
Professor Hugo R. Kruyt, of the Uni-
versity of Utrecht, Holland, in an in-
terview recently. "You see, there are
no undergraduates in the German uni-
versities, and the scientific people are
a distinct class. Here, a man conges
and goes to college for four years, and
although he may not study science he,'
at least, becomes acquainted with it.
I tried to be critical of America, but
I could not. I like it very much."
Professor Kruyt is on his first visit
to America. He came originally as
the guest of honor at the Colloid sym-
posium here in Ann Arbor last spring;
but remained here for special lectures
and is conducting two courses during
the Summer session.
Dr. Kruyt was first a student at the
University of Amsterdam when Bak-
huris Rooseboom, Van der Waals, Zee-
man, Hugo de Vries, and Lobry de
Bruges were connected there. "It was
a grand university then." Dr. Kruyt j
smiled as if reminiscing of those col-I

lege days. He entered the University
of Utrecht in 1907 and has been con-
nected with the University since that
time, although he has studied and
taught at other institutions.
Professor Kruyt has been a mem-
ber of the Netherlands delegation to
the International Union since its in-
stitution, and has visited Rome, Brus-
sells, Lyons, Cambridge, Copenhagen,
and Bucharest in this office. "You
see," he smiled again, "I know Eu-
rope quite well."
Since Holland was a neutral country
during the war Dr. Kruyt has been
able to do much towards the recon-
ciliation of the German and French
chemists. Since 1926 the Germans
have been invited to join the Inter-
national Union mostly by the efforts
of Holland and Denmark.
Dr. Kruyt lectured on "The Applica-
tion of Plgysical Chemistry to Indus-
try" yesterday in Natural Science au-
ditorium. He intends to leave Ann
Arbor August 1 and to sail for Hol-
land August 6.

Industry rests upon physical chem-
istry according to Professor Hugo; R.
Kruyt, of the University of Utrecht,
who spoke on "The Application of
Physical Chemistry to industry" yes-
terday afternoon in the Natural
Science auditorium.
Professor Kruyt traced the history
of physical chemistry beginning with
Goldberg and Waagre who first pro-
nounced the law or velocity, which
states that the velocity of a chemical
action is proportional to the concen-
tration of the material. Van't Hoff
and Lechatelier were nexxt mentioned
in connection with the principle of
compulsion which as Dr. jKruyt
stated is also applicable to men. Wil-
liam Gibbs, Van der Waal, and Bak-
huis Rooseboom were also mentioned
in this connection.
Dr. Kruyt mentioned the application
of physical chemistry to aviation, to
radio, to photography, and to the
manufacture of artificial silk, which
was the first fiber to be produced syn-
thetically. The kitchen was also
characterized as a remarkable example
of phyiscal chemistry.
"The physical chemist cannot" stand
the word impossible," said Dr. Kruyt
in conclusion.

methods employed in a raffle at the




Need For Major Hospital Care is More
Common Than In Previous Year;
Room Calls Decrease
Increase in the Health Service calls
and the daily cost of maintaining pa-
tients in the infirmary, accompanied
by a decrease in the student death
rate, were notable in the annual
statistical .report of the Health Ser-
vice published by Dr. Warren E. For-
sythe, director.
"An outstanding feature," accord-
ing to -Dr. Forsythe, "is that an un-
usual number of students have' re-
quired major hospital care for varied
conditions which have no common
cause. Acute appendicitis, typical."
An increase of 32 acute appendicitis
cases brought the total for the year
to 89, as compared with Lb .-y ths
previous period.
