NATIONAL TRADE MARK
ADVOCATED BY DEALERS
WOULD PROTECT AMERICAN EX-
PORTS IN TRADE AFTER
Chicago, May 27. - In preparing
the American manufacturer and ex-
porter to hold his own in the great]
struggle for foreign trade, which is
expected to follow the making of
peace, the National Retail Dry-goods
association, in session here, is advo-
cating strongly a national trade-mark
to protect American foreign trade.
"One reason why a national trade-
mark would be of great benefit to the
American manufacturers," said Mr.
Chauney P. Carter, of the bureau of
foreign and domestic commerce, who
has been engaged in drafting such a
bill to introduce in Congress, "is be-
cause there is so much legalized pi-
racy of private trade-marks in for-
eign? countries. The average manu-
facturer in the country does not con-
sider engaging in the export business"
until he has begun to exhaust the
possibilities of the home market. In
the meantime it does not occur to
him to protect his trade-mark in for-
"What really happens before the
manufacturer has turned his atten-
tion to foreign trade is that some for-
eign manufacturer has registered the
American trade-mark in his country,
and the American manufacturer is
restricted from developing his trade
in that country.
"If we had a national trade-mark,
owned and protected by our govern-
ment, this manufacturer could outwit
the private merchant by merely con-
stituting the national trade-mark for
his private mark on all shipments to
It was pointed out at the conven-
tion that a large number of measures
are being considered by the depart-
ment of commerce with a view of pre-
paring the manufacture and exporter
to hold his own in the great strug-
gle for world trade.
HOME OF MEMORIAL
STONE IS LOCATED
Several accounts of the original
home of the stone dedicated to the
class of 1862 have been circulated,
and it has at last been definitely lo-
cated. Mrs. Margaret Slater, of 545
Thompson street, is authority for the
data concerning the boulder.
On Fel 22, 1860, the parents of
Mrs. Slater, Mr. and Mrs. John Shee-
han, presented the stone to the class
of 1862. In a vacant lot on North
Fifth avenue the children of the
neighborhood used to play at a game
they called "King's Land," and the
memorial rock was used as the throne
of the .queen.
To the same vacant lot geology stu-
dents were accustomed to gather
specimens, and many pieces were
chipped from the rock. Long before
anyone thought of moving it, the
"throne", became known on the cam-
On the day of presentation 20 white
horses were hitched to the big bould-
er and they dragged it on a stone-
boat to its present location. The day
was a holiday and a large number of
students formed in procession behind
the boat and escorted it to the cam-
The stone is not only a memorial
to the class of 1862, but is also a re-
minder of the election of the most
loved of presidents, Abraham Lin-
coln. Throughout the Civil War the
rock stood as a token of the strength
of Michigan men who served the
Union in that time of need.
Since that .time every person who
has crossed the campus has been
forcibly impressed by the associat-
ions that this old monument inevita-
bly calls to mind.
ORIENTAL STUDENTS ARE
LAUDED BY PROFE HARLEY
THOSE ENROLLED AS ENGINEERS
EXCEL IN STUDIES AND
QUALITY OF WORK
Chinese students in this country are
making good in spite of the great
handicap of a lack of knowledge of
the language and customs of America,
according to Prof. Ransome S. Haw-
ley, of the engineering college, who
has kept in close touch with the
hundreds of Orientals enrolled in this
and other universities.
One of the reasons for the good rec-
ord made by these men is the fact
that they are the picked students of
the Chinese finishing schools, being
sent to this country only after pass-
ing a competitive examination. They
are prepared with an elementary
knowledge of the English language
before leaving their native country,
but experience great difficulty with the
technical terms used in the study of
The colleges are decided upon before
the men leave China-Michigan, Col-
umbia, and Colorado School of
Mines being the favorites. The Chin-
ese government pays all expenses
while in this country and encourages
the students to travel a much as
possible with a view of broadening
Oriental is Unused to Tools
According to Professor Hawley, the
Oriental student is handicapped in
work requiring the use of tools, such
as shop work and drafting. This is
due to the social custom of the coun-
try, it being considered degrading in
Chinese upper-class circles to be able
to use the hands skillfully.
In speaking of the power of appli-
cation shown by the Oriental students,
Professor Hawley said: "I doubt if
Americans could stand the steady
grind of work to which the Chinese
subject themselves. I know of one
student who laid out a daily schedule
extending from six in the morning un-
til midnight and stuck to it through-
out the year. What they lack in pre-
paration they make up in applica-
Chinese Excel in Athletics
Along athletic lines, the man from
China cannot compete with the Am-
erican because of te difference in
stature and- strength, but tennis and
lighter athletics are entered into with
zest. The development of athletics in
China is only recent, but the govern-
ment has realized the value of phy-
sical training in the building up of the
race and is now encouraging ath-
letics of all kinds in the Chinese
schools and colleges.
After completing his course in Am-
erica, the Eastern student returns to
his home, usually to teach in govern-
ment educational institutions, but fre-
quently to enter one of the many na-
tive industrial enterprises.
