Ottoman Merchants Are Adopting Oc-
cidental Methods of Doing
Rotterdam, Feb. 15.-That the Turks
are becoming occidentalized in their
business methods and that their taste!
are growing more fastidious, is shown
in the statement made recently by one
of .the most influential members of the
Young Turk committee to the Balkan
correspondent of the Nieuwe Rotte:
dam Courant.
"We will buy no more shoddy good
Western manufacturers who think
they can act on the old-time principle
that 'cheap and nasty' is good enough
for Turkey will do well to revise theh
business methods thoroughly," he de-
New Spirit in Turkey
It will be necessary, the correspon-
dent asserts, for those who want to do
business in Turkey to realize a few
new facts. One is that a ne
has come over -the Turkish merchant.
His proverbially slow eastern methods
have given place to quick decisions
and rapid action. He has imbibed a
taste for mking money quickly; ir
short, he ha become a wide awake
modern business man. Besides, there
has come a remarkable awakening of
nationalpride. The Turkants to do
everything himself now, and he is
especially bent on cutting out the Ar-
menians and the Greeks.
New Business Houses
New companies and business houses,
all of them purely Turkish, are spring-
ing up daily, and the government has
seen fit to grant many of them privil-
leges that virtually 'place the foreigner
out of competition.
On the other hand, Djavid Bey, the'
finance minister, has come back from
Berlin with his chauvinistic ideas con-
siderably chastened, the correspondent
writes. "Djavid has successfully ne-
gotiated a loan of 56,500,000 Turkish
pounds from the German government,
but obtained only 6,500,000 pounds in
cash to pay for German purchases,
the remaining 50,000,000 being in Ger-
man treasury bonds.
Increased Attractions,
The Ottoman empire, says the cor-'
respondent, will offer increased at-
tractions as a field of operations for
foreign industry. One who accurately
foresaw this, the writer adds, was
Abram Elkus,- the last American am-
bassador to Turkey, Who made every
effort to make sure that a share of
the coming economic revival of Turkey
should benefit Anerica.
Meanwhile, the Turks are very busy
pushing their own industries, espec-
ially those that are capable of turning
out simple articles of everyday use
which they are determined to make
themselves. Numbers of handicraft
and industrial schools have sprung up
all over the country, and hundreds of
Turkishyouthshave been sent abroad
to pick up experience in the trades and
industries which they will ultimately
conduct in their own country.
Times Demand Unusual Care Be-
ileves Physical
Elements of hygienic living, thought
to be compatible with university life,
are outlined on a card that has been
formulated by the department of phy-
sical education for women, in co-

operation with the Health service.
Observation of the rules is not re-
quired, but is being included in the
athletic honor point system to stimu-
late voluntary interest in the matter.
For living up to the requirements of
the card for 28 days, one honor poir,
is given.
The board is divided into several
headings, such as sleep, exercises,
care of the teeth, and so on, and on
the back is a table where the record
is to be kept. -
All University women are strong-
urged to try out the keeping of the
record. Someone in each house
group has been asked to present the
cards to her group with explanations.
Cards may also be secured at the of-
fice of Miss Alice Evans, physical di-
"We appeal to the women of the
University .to consider this method
of hygienic living as an aid to a de-
sired state of good health, which in
these strenuous times is a more valu-
able asset than ever before," said Miss

Sixty-five students and members of
the faculty of the Homeopathic Medi-
cal school attended a banquet given
last evening at the Union under the
auspices of the Alumni association
of the school. The occaion of the
dinner was a reception for Dr. Frank
Wieland, of Chicago, professor of sur-
gery at Hohnemann .edical college
and head of the welfare service of the
Montgomery Ward Company.
Dr. Wieland is known for his work
in bettering the conditions of employ-
ees of the Chicago firm, and has been
highly praised for his eorts in wel-
fare service. He has been instru-
mental in encouraging progress in this
line in various parts of the country,
and is considered an authority on in-
dustrial medical work. At present
his service at the Montgomery-Ward
Company treats an average of 275
cases each day among the company's
Physicians' Work Great
"The work of physicians is the big-
ges-on earth today," said Dr. Wie-
land. "We must work like the knights
of Kind Arthur's Round Table in over-
powering evil, which is found in our
line to be diseases and ailments that
make our world's workers inefficient.
We must work here and on the battle
fields of France to keep every single
individual up to his maxium effiiency.
The goernment has realized this
need of physicians and is encourag-
ing every move of the medical men.
Industrial Physicans Needed
"Industrial physicians are especially
needed to carry on the great campaign
to keep the forces of the nation at
work. Our fighters need backing, and
we must keep our manufacturing
plants going to their utmost capacity.
"Departments of industrial medicie
should be established at every uni-
versity, and I am sure that this ste)
will be taken in a short time. Every
man that can possible study medicine
should rush to join the ranks of the
physicians. We n-eed many, many
more to carry on our gr'eat task.
Homoeopaths Suited
"Homoeopaths are especially suit-
ed to this work because their treat-
ments are particularly effective. When
a homoeopathic remedy is pre cribed
correctly, it is more swift and :uc-
cessful. Every young doctor .hould
remember one thing: There can be
no success which disregards the other
fellow. , Be conscientious in every
thing thing you do, and dedicate your
lives and your souls to the work <f
bettering your fellow-men."
Telegraph Course
Has New Section
A new section of the telegraph code
course now in progress will be start-
ed Monday afternoon in the telegraph
and telephone room of the Engineer-
ing building. The course is to give
training in buzzer work and is open
to all University men and those out-
side as well. Upon graduating after
two to three months instruction, the
men will be capable of handling a tel-
egraph instrument in the United States
signal corps. No credit is given by the
University for this course.
At present there are two courses in

radio work in progress under the sup-
ervision of Mr. Porter N. Evans, the
code course and a course in radio com-
munication. The latter, in which 35
men are enrolled, is a purely technic-
al course in electrical communication
by wireless and is open to only those
who have completed . fundamental
courses in electrical engineering. It
is given at the request of the United
States signal corps, the government
supplying all laboratory equipment.
The work consists of five hours reci-
tation, one hour laboratory, one hour,
field work, and five hours code prac-
tice and military drill. All the men
are enrolled in the R. 0. T. C., but
have been detailed by Lieutenant Mul-
len for special drill. Eight hours cred-
it is given by the University for this

Dancing at Armory, Friday and Sat-
urday Nights-9 to 1 Eastern time.-"

Classes will start today in the new
aeronautical laboratory which is now
being equipped in room 330 of the En-
gineering building. The equipment
will be completed and the work run-
ning smoothly within the next two
weeks, stated one of the men in charge
The -new laboratory will be under
the direct charge of Prof. H. ,C. Sad-
ler, head of the aeronautics depart-
ment, and Prof. F. W. Pawlowski.
One of the novel pieces of appar-
atus which are to be used in con-
nection with the experimental work in
aeronautics is the aerodynamic bal-
ance. This instrument, of which there
are two others in the United States, is
the result of the labor of several men
for an entire semester. It is placed
in front of the wind tunnel of the lab-
oratory and when in this position will
measure the lifting force of the var-
ious types of wing-sections or even
of model air-planes. The resistance to
the air of struts and other air-plane
parts can also be determined by the
use of this instrument.
The supply of air under forced draft
which is used for the tests is obtained
from the blowers which operate the
ventilating system of the Engineering

Admirer of ;J.,fax

Celebrities are very human and de-
lightful, if one may consider Max
Rosen a representative type. He made
several brave efforts to button his
spats while answering the questions
of the enthusiastic and admiring
crowd that surrounded him in his
dressing room after the concert last
night, but he became so interested in
talking that his manager had to fin-
ish up the spats and put on his wraps
"I -have been in this country only
six weeks," he said. "For s long I
have heard German, Swedish, and Nor-
wegian but now 1 am talking to my
own people," and .his glowing face
and outspread arms were indicative
of extreme satisfaction.
When asked what he liked to do for
recreation he stuck his hands inchis
pockets and exhibited 'bars of cho-=
colate. "I eat chocolate," he laughed,
"Oh, I eat quantities of chocolate. I
love it and I like tosit in a nice easy
chair and smoke a cigarette. And
when I can do it, I go to shows.
Quite Temperamental
Mr. Rosen says his. practice hours
depend upon his moods.
He made a feint at hiding when in-
formed that the reporters wanted to
see him but seeing no available refuge
he faced 'about and continued his con-
versation, which was to the effet that
Ann Arbor has the most wonderful
auditorium he has ever seen. "I have
played in Berlin, Munich, and the
Norwegian cities, but never have I
seen anything like this," he exclaimed.
"And the people here have been so
fine to me. My concert has been a
great pleasure. I am sorry-." But
why, is a matter for conjecture for at
this point he was literally dragged
away to- the waiting car, waving a
boyishly friendly farewell as he dis-

"Watch Your Step," written -by Irv-
ing Berlin, was the next step of the
ladder for the Castle team. Soon aft-
er this had become a success, the male
member of the firm entered the fly-
ing section of the British army. He
made good, and Broadway did not
see him until two years later when he
returned, hardened by his flights, and
appeared on the stage with his wife
in Ziegfeld's "Follies." It was his first
dance in a year.
Several months ago he was station-
ed at Benbrook Field, as an instruct-
or. His death occurred while he was
engaged in training one of the pick-
ed men of Uncle Sam to win the war.
He showed in his life that the en-
emies of dancing are wrong when
they say that a dancer can't come
back. Vernon Castle did.
