Show Slides To Illustrate Economic
Depression Caused By Lack Of
Needed Workers
That the Amazon valley, the home
of rubber, is still remarkably well
fitted for the raising of this product,
even though lacking the number and
type of laborers required, is the op-
inion of Prof. Preston E. James of
the geography department who de-
livered an illustrated lecture at 5
o'clock yesterday afternoon in the Nat-
ural Science auditorium on "The
Amazon Valley."
Discusses Progress
Professor James opened his talk
with a short discussion of the progress'
that men have made in the explora-
tion of the world, pointing out that;
soon there will be no more impene-
trable places on this earth and people,
will have to turn their thoughts to,
other things than exploration. One

Play Classes To
Present .Kelly's
Comedy Tonightl
Final rehearsals of George Kelly's
amusing comedy, "The Show-Off"
have been completed and everything is
in readiness for the performance of
this play tonight at 8:30 in University
The play is called by the author "a!
transcript of life." The scene is laid
in the living-room of a middle-classj
home in north Philadelphia. Into this
home comes the breezy, bragging
Aubrey Piper, who works for the
Pennsylvania Railroad at the princely
salary of $3250 per week. But, asj
Mrs. Fisher remarks, "to hear him
talk you'd think he owned the Penn-
sylvania Railroad." He has a brazen
'assurance which wins for him the af-
fection of the sentimental Amy and
the unqualified disapproval of the rest
of the family, particularlly of Mrs.
Fisher whose caustic remarks and
common-sense philosophy furnish
much amusement. But Aubrey is
1 imperious to her thrusts and his com-
placency is unshaken. Amy believes
in him, he believes in himself, and as
for the rest,--well, "a little bit of
bluff goes a long way."I

IDean of Stmmer Session Adiocates
ProfessionalI Requirements
For Pharmics
Speak ing before the 'state conven-
Iion of the retail druggists in session
in \ay City Wednesday Dean Edward
11. Kraus, of the Summer session, ad-
voeat edthat the reiirements for en-
t-a ncecillthe pharmacy profession be
the same as in medicine and dentistry.
During a tour of Europe last
pr'ni, ' Dean lraus stated, "I made
Sspecil study of the pharmaeutical
condit ions il England, France and
Germany. I was especially impressed
withI the standards of the profession
in Germany.'
In tracing the growth of standards
ill this profession the speaker re-
marked: "We know that enormous
sIrides have been made in pharmacy
in this coonmtry aid especially in this
state due to the splendid judgment of
the state board and of its efficient
secretary. A short time ago the re-
quirement for entry into this profes-
smont was a tenth grade education and
now it is a twelfth grade education.

1200 Students
To Form Block
"m" Next Fall;
1By special arrangement with the
Michigan Union the plans fom- the
Student Council cheering section will
be mailed before the opening of
school to all male students of the Uni-
versity. This marks the maturing of
the Council's plans for an all-men's
section at all the big games and is the
first step in perfecting the new sys-
tem, devised after a study of similar
sections at other schools by William
A. Warrick, Varsity cheerleader and
his assistants.
The Athletic Association has set
aside a block of 1200 seats in the con-
crete stand at Ferry Field for the use
of the students exclusively. This
block lies in sections E, F, and G, ex-
tending from the 25 yard line to the
45. Each student signing for a place
in th'e section will be given a single
seat for the entire season, a specially
mtmade cap and a cape. 574 of these
caps and capes will be maize and 626
blue, while the seats will be arranged
so that the group will form :i block
"M" of blue upon a backgound ofl
maize. In addition each stu lent will
have a megaphone.
'To defray the expense of the plan
one dollar will be .charged each stu-j
dent signing for the section. Until
September 25 only upperclassmen and
sophomores will be accefted, after
that date freshmen may apply. The
students who sign must ag- ' to be
t present at all home games and to wear
the uniform. Membership in the cheer-
ing section will not preclude students
from purchasing extra seats elsewhere
in the stadium.
The home games include Oklahoma
A. and M., Michigan State, Minnesota,
Wisconsin, and Illinois. The applica-
tion blanks for football tickets will he
sent out to all alumni on the tenth of
August. A new system of filling ap-
plications has been announced by the'
I Athletic association, in that all appli-i
cations received between August 20
and August 30 will be treated as
though received on September first
and filled by lot. Thereafter applica-
tions will be filled in the order of

An outline of the plans of the Stu-
dent Council for the all-campus morn-
ing convocations in the fall was made
public yesterday by the committee in
charge of the arrangements. The plans
call for a series of six convocations at
eleven o'clock Sunday morning, be-
ginning October 10 and continuing
through November 14 under the joint
auspices of the Student Council and
the Michigan School of Religion.
Fitch Returns
The series will be opened by Dr.
Albert Parker Fitch, of Carleton col-
lege, Northfield, Minnesota. Dr.
Fitch was one of the speakers on the
spring program and will remain in
Ann Arbor this time for two days, dur-
ing which time he will be open to
whatever contacts students desire to
make. He is a well known speaker
and author of "None So Blind", a re-
cent college novel.
Patton To Speak
Dr. Carl Patton, of the Chicago
Theological Seminary, will speak in
Hill auditorium on October 17. Dr.
Patton returns this year to Chicago
after a long service in the principal
Los Angeles Congregational church.
He was also formerly a pastor of the
Ann Arbor Congregational church,
,where he preceded Lloyd Douglas and
Dr. Jump.
Gilkey Accepts
The third speaker already obtained
for th-e series is Dr. Charles W. Gilkey,
of Chicago. Dr. Gilkey is also well
known in Ann Arbor and widely rec-
ognized as an outstanding preacher to
college audiences. He will speak on
October 31. Dr. Gilkey postponed an
engagement at Mt. Holyoke and Smith
colleges in order to come to Michigan
in the fall.
The remaining three speakers have
not yet been announced.
Still An Experiment
The Student Council inaugurated
the Sunday morning convocations last
spring as an experiment in student
thought to discover whether or not
Michigan students are interested in
the best of religious and idealistic
thoughU if presented under non-de-
pominational auspices. The audiences
in four convocations in May averaged
2500, largely students and faculty.
This year plans are being considered
to limit the use of the main floor of
Hill auditorium to students and fac-
ulty, sending all townspeople who
wish to attend to the first balcony. As
far as possible it will be a student
Iroject and conflict only in time with
the services of the local churches.
ROME.--It was officially announced
at the Vatican that before non-Catho-
lie audiences are granted in the fu-
ture, it must be made clear that they
are not desired merely to satisfy curi-

there is so unreliable and oftentimes
inefficient that there is a great deal of
loss in producing the rubber and the
country is unable to compete with the
better labor conditions of the East
Indies, which are troubled with no
such problems.
Labor Situation Difficult
In the properous days of 1910 and
thereabouts many beautiful buildings
and improvements were made in the
Amazon valley and now these are for
a large part falling into decay, be-
cause the country can not afford to
support them. The speaker showed
one slide of a magnifident opera house
which has heard many of the leading
opera stars of all times and which is
now used for the storage of what little'
rubber is still produced in the region.
This is all due to the fact that the lab-
or situation in this region is so much
more difficult than in the British col-
onies, because the climate and coun-
try is well fitted physically for the
development of the industry.
There is another common miscon-

ception as to the fertility of the soil in
the country, Professor James stated,
for it is not exceptionally fertile as
seems to be generally supposed. It is
sandy and weak and requires a great
deal of fertilization.
Other industries which are growing
up in this section are the raising of
sugar, which is greatly hampered by
the United States tariff, the raising of
Brazil nuts, and a small amount of
vegetable farming.

Mrs. O'Hara has visited all the im-
portant penal institutions in the
United States, with the exception of
San. Quentin prison in California.
ROME.--Accompanied by lay and
ecclesiastical courts, the Pope made
an official visit to the Pauline Chapel
of the Vatican to enjoy the indulgence
of St. Francis of Assisi, on the seven
hundredth anmiversary of her death.
