The regents of the university seltled the qnestion of the removal of the clinic to Detroit at their meeting last FrWay eveniug. President Angelí in nis annual report recommended its speedy settlement as it would be better for the internal harmony and prospenty of the medical depavtment. The removal would make the expense greater to both students and faculty, it would require additions to be made to the faculty and would cause the university to be called upon for larger expenditares. The same argument as used to cause the removal of the clinics to Detroit could be used to move a part of the homoepathic and dental departmenta there and this would e a dangerous disintegratiou of life and a calumitous diffusion of f orce. The students would lose the advantages of the university library and university life. The Detroit hospitals are not much larger fchan ours and a Detroit practitioner in nis annual address to the state medical society said there is no hospital in Detroit which is properly equipped or which has money enough to pay its running expenses witnout financial embarrasment. The president recommended that the state erect a commodious hospital inthiscity to which could be brought those who are county charges. The regents adopted a resolution olïered by Regent Vnletts,l'thatit is neither practicable nor desirable to remove any part of the medical department to Detroit and it is the settled policy of the board that the university be maiutained in entirety at Ann Amor."' Regent Fields of Detroit was the onlv regent to oppose the adoption of Uie resolulion which settles tlie fact that the university clinics remain here. NEW FACULTV HEMÜ3EBS.

MACLJEAN STIRRED UP. The action of the regents regarding f the clinic agaia brings Dr. Maclean to il the front and the Detroit Evening j Journal quotes him as saying: j "1 shall not give up yet, because I believe the inherent meritsof the cause will carry it through successfully, notwithstanding the action which the board to jk Fnday night. regents i have nfiver given thi matter fair conBsideration. They have surïered our arguments, but they have done so, as it were, ander protest. The board is under the influence of persons at Ann Arbor, tvhose petty interests cause them to oppose the extensión. These persons tliink that something is to be taken f'rom Ann Arbor. Tbey cannot see that the change would be a real benefit to the tovvn as well as to the state at large. JJut the profession and I think the people of Michigan favor the scheme, and the public opinión will soon eompel the regents to fairly investígate. And wheii once investigated I have no fearof the resnlt. The fallacious and sophisticated argumenta of President Angelí and the others will not bear the light of reason. They can't stand." THE NEED OF AN ART OALLBRY. President Angelí favorably called attention of the regents to the pressing need of an art gallery, when he referred to the large and valuable pieces of the Roger:s collection of statuary not yei unacked because the university has no place to put them. The state has been presented by an eminent sculptor of whose name and fame America is well proud, with statuary estimated in value to be worth S2ó0,000. She ought to be able at least to provide shelter for sucia a gift and facilities tor so arranging the statuary that it might aid in ticating that love of art that is inherent in civilized mankind. The prohibition club will ereÜt a Piske pole. The masteipiece course is taken by lifty students. Tb.8 spring vacation will be three weeks later than formerly.
