COMMITTEES OF BOTHI
Dean, Of Forestry School To Testify
In Washington Before Members
Of House And Senate
WILL LEAVE ON MONDAY'
Dean Samuel T. Dana of the School
of Forestry and Conservation will
leave for Washington, D.C., Monday
,to testify before congressional com-
mittees about the proposed McNary-
McSweeney forest appropriation bill.
Dean Dana will appear before the
Senate committee on agricultural and
forestry on Tuesday and before the
house committee on agriculture
The McNary-McSweeney bill pro-
vides for adequate supplies of timber'
through the purchase of national
forest lands and the use of experi-
ments and investigations to determine
the best forest policies. An annual
appropriation of $250,00 would be
provided for this service.
Dean Dana will testify on section
two of the bill which provides for the
conduction of fire, silvicultural, and
other forest investigations and experi-
ments by the maintenance of forest
experiment stations. These stations
are located in strategic parts of the
United States. Before coming 'to
Ann Arbor to direct the forestry
school Dean Dana was in charge of
the Northeastern forest experiment
station at Amherst, Mass.
The bill under question has re-
ceived the indorsement of a number
of various organizations interested in
forestry, it has been reported. Dean
Dana will represent the University of
Michigan and the Society of American
Foresters before the congressional
committee's. President Clarence Cook
Little has endorsed the bill and is
sending a message with Dean Dana in
which he expresses the hope that the
bill will be favorably reported out of

"I found nothing but enthusiasm
for the Alumni university program
among any of the eastern alumni
with whom I came in contact over
the week end," President Clarence
Cook Little stated yesterday upon his
return from a five day trip to New
York and Princeton, N. J. At a ban-
quet of more than 300 alumni held
in the Commodore hotel in New York
on Friday night a great deal of en-
thusiasm was displayed for the Uni-
versity and its projects, President
Little reported, and the alumni seem-
ed willing to assist the Alumni uni-
versity to grow gradually to the place
which administraitive efficials hope
for it to attain.
It is expected that there will be
announced shortly a committee on
the special needs of the University
from the alumni body, President Lit-
The President spoke at a small in-
formal gathering of alumni in New
York Thursday night, at the large
banquet Friday night, and Saturday
he left for Princeton, N. J., where he
delivered the closing address to the
Princeton Religious conference on
Sunday afternoon. Monday he re-
turned to New York and spent the
(ay in conferences with alumni, and
yesterday morning returned to Ann

'Foresters' Red Hats
Used. y Switchmen
Another possible clue as to why
foresters wear their red hats reaches
us in a news item from Hazelton, Pa.,
where the switchmen of a certain
traction company have adopted the
vermillion headgear in the hope it
will make them more conspicuous at
It seems that these switchmen have
been grievously harrassed of late by
motorists whose inability to dis-
tinguish them in time has been blamed
for the sky-rocketting mortality rate
among Hazaetonaswitchmen. It has
been felt perhaps that Michigan's
brand new school of forestry, having
achieved an enrollment of 25, needs
protection against Ann Arbor motor-
ists lest in dwindle away to nothirt
in the first year of its existence.
The drawing of analogies between
foresters and switchmen is, of course,
a fertile field, but courtesy demands
a certain reaicence. It is, however,
permissible to speculate who next will
join with the brothers under the red
