Predicts Big Dpcrease In Food
Supply Unless Nation Takes
Precautionary Steps
"Conservation of natural re-
souxces is one of the most impor-
tant of the issues facing the people
of the world today," according to
Mortimer E. Cooley, Dean Emeritus
of the engineering school. Dean
Cooley went further in saying that,
if the attention of the nation were
not turned to the subject, the food
supply would soon become inade-
quate for our increasing needs.
"The faculty of the University
thought it so important," Dean
Cotley continued, "that, a few
years ago, they added a special
course to the curriculum of the
engineering school to deal with the
sujject. It was subsequently drop-
pe, not because it was unimpor-
tant, but because of lack of inter-
est on the part of the student body.
The true significance of the situa-
ti n has been lost sight of in these
recent years of prosperity, but it is
of such a sort that it cannot be long
ignored.
"The most outstanding phase of
the situation is that of the defor-
estation of our country. Michigan
is one of the foremost examples
of this sort," Dean Cooley went on
to state "because the land has been
deiuded of trees, the arable soil
is rapidly being washed away, and
we may see the result in the great,
un roductive pine-barrens of the
noarths.,
"The vital nature of the problem
is est brought out," Dean Cooley
sat in closing, "by the fact that
population increases by geometric
ratio, while the food-supply can
only increase by arithmetic ratio,
while other resources are constant-
ly decreasing."

Philosophy and graduate student
ii. the University has just received
an American Field Service Fellow-
ship Award, according to an an-
nouncement made by Archie M.

tin. Under the conditions of the
award Hoekstra is to receive a sti-
pend of $1,400 in addition to the
privilege of spending a year of study
in4 the Philosophy of Spinoza under
Professor Leon Brunschvicg at the
University of Paris.
The followships for the year of
129-30, which were awarded to
eight others beside Hoekstra, were
established in order to develop a
more complete realization and con-
sideration of the contributions made
by the great minds of France to
Science. and learning. The organi-
zation of the American Field Serv-
ice Fellowships for French univer-
sities was establish shortly after the
World War "in order to provide an
exnduring memorial to the 127 Field
Service men who gave their lives to

the cause and to perpetuate among
future generations the mutual un-
derstanding and fraternity spirit
which marked their relations dur-
ing the war."

Brisk-energetic-efficient-these
terse words seem best to charac-
terize the personality of Henry M.
Butzel, president of the Detroit
Bar Association, the largest organ-
ization of its kind in the state.
Butzel, an alumnus of the Univer-
sity and one of the founders of thej
Daily in 1890, has achieved a good
deal of renown in local legal cir-
cles and from his position as pres

legal ranks, there is a great opporI
tunity for capable men.
"Not only must a man have abil-
ity, but there are certain other
qualities that he should have to
prove a success. These are integ-
rity and industry. With these three
traits present-integrity, industry,
and ability-a young man will al-
most always become a successful
lawyer."
