Plan to Make University Greatest
Center of Surgical Researh
In World
Chicago, Nov. 13.-Gifts were an-
nounced yesterday which bid fair to
make the Chicago Medical school the
greatest center of surgical and medic-
al research in the world. The general
education board and the Rockefeller
foundationfund have each appropriat-
ed $1,000,000 to start the work conting-
ent on the raising of an additional
$3,000,000 by the University of Chicago
which will be the nucleus of big re-
search laboratories. Friends of the
University have already raised $700,-
000 and a campaign for the remaining
$2,600,000 will be started at once. In
addition the University will set aside
a site valued at $500,000.
Rush medical college and the Pres-
byterian hospital with its affiliated re-
search institutions and property of
some $3,000,000 will co-operate in the
great fight for suffering humanity.
These new medical schools and re-
search laboratories, will when consol-
idated, represent a capital of between
$8,000,000 and $10,000,000. A new hos-
pital, the last word in perfect equip-
ment, will be erected adjoining the
campus and will be open to both resi-
dent and out-of-town patients. This
huge plant will be for the exclusive
use of undergraduates while the Rush
Medical college and Presbyterian hos-
pital will be for only graduate stu-
dents. The laboratories for medicine
and surgery are to be most elaborate
and complete and will offer remark-
able opportunities to men interested in
creative medicine.
The entire staff of the new schools
will be based on a full time basis.
Professors and assistants will become
salaried officials of the University and;
give up private practice. It is under-
stood that Dr. Frank Billings is one ofa
the men who will devote his great tal-
ent to the building up of a world1
known graduate school. Some of the
foremost surgical authorities of the
country will be called to the newi
institution and each will have from
three to four assistants.
The post-graduate school is mainly
to offer opportunities to the hundreds
of physicians who go to Germany and
Austria for their further training. It
has long been the dream of all inter-
ested in the fight against disease to1
see a center of research and investiga-1
tion on this side of the Atlantic andt
there never has been a more propit-l
ious time for such an idea to be work-
ed out. Plans for such an institutionI
have long been under way. Dr. Abra-
ham Flexner, of the general education
board, brother of Dr. Simon Flexner,
of the .Rockefeller institute of New
York, has made several trips to Chica-
go regarding the matter and is plan-
ning on giving much of his valuableq
time to the formation of the new
"It is not simply our purpose to
establish a medical training school,";

of the trustees of the University, "butf
it will be a great attack on disease."
of the senior engineers marks a new
epoch in the annals of the engineer-
ing college. Two hundred pairs of
corduroys were received and these willi
be distributed in the Engineering so-;
ciety's room this afternoon.
It is expected that the junior engin-
eers will take up the matter of wear-1
ing corduroys at their assembly on
Thursday. If they should decide in

favor of this proposition, the color of
their trousers will be different from
that of the upper classmen.

Hindu Poet Passes Through Many
Phases of Spiritual Development
While Writing
Sir Rabindranath Tagore, who
speaks in Ann Arbor, Wednesday
evening, Nov. 15, has been delivering
lectures throughout the United States
since Oct. 1. During the past four
years he has become one of the most
widely read of modern poets; the facts
of his life, however, are still a closed
book to the majority of the American
Tagore was born in Calcutta, India,
in 1861, son of the Maharshi Deven-
dranath Tagore, a famous spiritual
leader who belongs to a family dis-
tinguished for many generations
throughout India. While still a young
boy he lost his mother, a grief which
deeply touched this sensitive child and
sent him to Nature for consolation.
The first, or Calcutta period, of his
life was a quiet time of growth and
development; its most striking inci-
dent was his visit to England when he
was 17. By this time, he was already
writing verse.
Life on his father's vast estates led
to his coming into touch with the real
life of the people. His best known
works of this period, perhaps, are:
"The Crescent Moon," "The Gardner,"
"Gitanjali," and "The Hungry Stones."
The second period of his life, which
lasted 17 years, had a sad ending, as
he lost in rapid succession by death,
his wife, daughter, and the younger
of his two sons.
At the age of 40, in 1901, he entered
on his work at Bolpur, which he has
continued to the present time. Here
is situated his school, "Shanti Niket-
an," or the "Abode of Peace." This
school, while strictly Indian in char-
acter, has in itself embodied the most
advanced educational ideas of the
world today, while retaining also the
best traditions of the Indian garden
and forest schools.
The self-government of the school
is modeled after that of the famous
George Junior Republic. Here Tagore
has brought the power of his per-
sonality to bear upon an increasing
number of the young men of India.
While in England several years ago,
Tagore delivered a series of lectures,
which were afterwards repeated at
Harvard University. These lectures
have since been published with' the
title of "Sadhana: The Realization of
In 1913, Tagore was awarded the
Noble prize for idealism in literature.
This brought him into world promin-
ence. These prizes of $40,000 each are
awarded for distinguished achievement
in various fields of medicine, science,
and peace. Kipling, Swinburne, Echa-
garay, D'Annunzio and other have been
the recipients of prizes in literature.
Tagore was the first Oriental to re-
ceive a prize.
Sir Rabindranath Tagore was edu-
cated in India and at Oxford. He
speaks English without any apparent
accent and has most usuallly been his
own translator.
Tagore has had many interesting ex-
periences while in this country and in
Japan. In San Francisco, he was the
victim of the plots of several Hindu
sects who are opposed to some of his
most idealistic teachings. Another in-
cident, this time not so serious, o-
curred in Japan, when the curiosity of
the Japanese reporters and their en-

ergetic insistence that he see all the
sights of the city proved almost too'
much for the mild-mannered man.
Requests for tickets for Mr. Tagore's
lectures are coming from all the near-
by cities. A special block of 200 seats
has been on sale in Ypsilanti and it
is probable that a special car will be
run. Mail orders have also been re-

New York, Nov. 13.-More than $30,-
000 in prizes will be awarded to win-
ners in the 31st annual show of the
National Horse Show association,
which opened Saturday in MadisonI
Square Garden, continuing until next
Friday night.
The prize list will contain 153 classes
for horses and ponies of almost every
type reared in the United States.
Beside the usual, classifications sev-
eral new ones have been offered,
among them a costly challenge cup
donated by I. J. R. Muurling, treasurer
of the United States Racing associa-
tion, for registered thoroughbred
hunters. It is to be ridden for by
women over a course of four-foot fence
jumps. Another new trophy, valued at
$250, will be given by the Smithtown
Hunt club, Long Island, for hunters,
to be ridden for by recognized hunt
clubs over post and rail fences, brush
jumps and other obstacles. A number
of other awards have been offered by
prominent horsemen.

As a result of the recent house to
house campaign the, membership of the
Engineeri4 society has been in-
creased from 450 to 650. In point of
numbers the Engineering society is
therefore the third largest organiza-
tion on the campus, the Union and the
"Y" being the leaders.
Although no official returns have as
,yet come in, all indications point to
the fact that the engineering college
was represented by more men who
"bummed" their way to Ithaca than
any other college on the campus.
Inasmuch as this is an enviable
honor, it is expected that the count
will be contested by the other colleges.
Tickets for the Engineering's so-
ciety's dance have been placed on sale
at the Technic desk. The price is 60
cents for members, and 75 cents for
outside men. The number of tickets
on sale is limited.
The dance will be held at the Union
on Dec. 1. The chaperones are Prof.
and Mrs. John C. Parker, and Prof.
and Mrs. C. T. Johnston. The commit-
tee in charge of the affair is, C. M.
