The medical constituency of the University was surprised to a considerable degree by the announcement in the Detroit Tribune, Satnrday tnorning, that changes were contemplated in the Homeopathie department which might result in its abolition. In order to get at the facts in the case, and give both sides of the question so as to do equal justice to all, a representative of the Daii.y called on the leading gentlemen of both schools. VVhile they all admit that a change is being contemplated, they scout the idea that the Homeopathie school is to be abolished, for, they s?.y, what would the University gain by such action which could only result in a loss in a number of ways. It has been known for some time that Dean Obeti, of 'the Homeopathie school, has been attempting to form a closer uniĆ³n of the departments, but as to his plan, which has not been formally present-ed, he is not in a position to state. PRKSIDENT ANGEI.L. The president admitted that a change was being considered by the regents, but as tothe naturtf it he ( was not prepared to speak.jBie mits, however, tbat it wi'.Be ( sidered and may be deternfed i on at the next meeting of the ' regents, December 16. Speaking of the contemplated change, Dr. Vaughn, of the regular school, says Dr. Obetz submitted to . him certain propositions concerning the two schools. Dr. Vaughn said, "No unioo of the two departments is possible except in the event of the complete renunciation of homeopathie principies." -'We are well enough satisfied where we are, and whatever overtures are made will come from the homeopathie side." Dr. MacLachlan, secretary of the Homeopathie faculty, says, "I have known that certain changes in our school were contemplated by the dean, but the faculty of our school will never agree to any anything which will inteifere with the teaching of homeopathy." "As regards the abolition of the homeopathie school," says the doctor, "you can assure your readers that the rumor is entirely unfounded." "While we admit that we have not as many students this year, by six or eight, we maintain that we have not lost proportionally as many as the regular school." "As to our hospital facilities I will say that our wards are f uil even ie spite of the discriminations against us in favor of the regular schooi."
