Two Years in Argentina.
About five hundred people gathered
in the old chapel at tho University
last night to listen to. tho Illustrated"
lecture on "Two YearB In Argentlno"
by Dr. E. L. Corthell, who Is engaged
as consulting engineer by Argentine
Ropublic in harbor and river improve
ments. Dr. Corthell commenced by relating
briefly the historical and geographical
conditions of Argentine.
The fact that the nature of the Ar
gentine rivers are similar to tho Miss
issippi led the Republic to secure the
services of Dr. Corthell. His success
ful work on the Mississippi made him
a most noted engineer. Tho construc
tion of tho jetties gave him a reputa
tion abroad as well as at homo. About
eighty-five slides were exhibited In
Illustrating the lecture. Many were
scenic and were received with applause.
The description of the engineering
work Was Illustrated by many views
showing harbor Improvements, their
magnitude and difficult construction,
one of tho most Important being the
dry dock at Buenbs Ayres. This dock
Interesting Seminar Investiga
tions on Race Problem.
Statistical studies made by American
history seminar 18a are reported as
showing decided tendencies toward
negro segregation In tho southern
states. In counties where whites al
ready predominate, the white Increase
is Iargor than tho negro, while negro
Increase la greatest In countlos already
predominantly negro. This tendency,
If unchecked, .will produce a "black
f bolt" In the remainder, and unless ac
companied by somo othor na yet un
discovered remedial phonomena, meanB
a new and perhaps virulent phase of
tho "race war" In the southern states.
The negro problem Is universally rec
ognized as one of the most serious con
fronting tho nation, and any light
thrown on It by such Investigations
will bo a contribution to not only his
tory but also present day politics.

Medics Discuss Marriage.
At tho regular meeting of the medical
society last night L. B. Sturdyvant
read a paper on "Consanguineous Mar
riages." His discussion ran essential
ly as follows:
"The aim of tho Individual Is to get
along In tho world with the smallest
amount of friction. The extension of
life to the longest possible time is an
all-absorbing question. In times of
primitive man brothers married sis
ters, but such a practice has been
eliminated from civilized society. Sav
ages have boen known to marry only
betwoen tribes, a custom that probably
resulted from degeneration that aroso
out of relatives marrying. Thore are
two restraints on marriage, namejy,
natural and social. Social .restraint
was applied early in civilization. It
was early known that, kin ought not
to marry kin. Similarity in distant
relations ought not .to exist. Many
diseases common to the, race could be
done away with to a large decree by
paying moro attention to the correct
rules of marriage. - -
