COLONEL ARTHUR H. WOODS '92 TO SPEAK AT UNION MARCH 10

MACMILLAN HERE ON 30TH

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The second lecture in the series arranged by the management of the Union will take place on Wednesday evening, March 10, when Colonel Arthur Hale Woods '92 will speak on "American Citizenship on Trial." Colonel Woods, after graduating from the University, spent several years as instructor at Groton School, after which he went to Europe and was at the University of Berlin for two semesters. He spent part of 1905 and 1906 in New York City as reporter on the "Evening Sun," and later studied the police situation there. In the summer of 1905 he travelled through the Philippines with Secretary Taft's party, and later made a trip around the world. As Police Commissioner of New York City he did his greatest work, completely reorganizing the police force of that city and making it the most efficient body of its kind in the world.

Several other lectures are on the program for this month. On March 18 Frank A. Vanderlip, former president of the National City of Bank of New York City, will lecture on "America's Financial Obligations." Professor C. T. Copeland '82 will give his Mid-winter Reading on March 24. He will read selections from Leacock, Dickens, and Kipling. On Tuesday evening, March 30, Donald B. MacMillan, the famous Arctic explorer, will deliver an illustrated lecture on "Five Years Among the Polar Eskimos." This lecture was postponed from early in January.
