France Follows United States
in Amount of Gold Money
Held in Reserve.
NEW YORK, M a r. 20.-(P)--
There is more monetary gold in the
United States now than at any
time in its history.
The amount, $4,685,000,000, re-
vealed in the weekly Federal Re-
serve statement for March 18, is
42.5 per cent of all the monetary
gold in the world, and is $1.000,-
000 greater than the previous high
mark of $4,684,000,000 established
May 14, 1927.
The figure is more than twice
that of France, which has main-
tained an astonishing rate of gold
imports for more than a year, and
is seven times that of England.
the weekly statements of the Bank
of France and the Bank of England
The total is the greatest ever
achieved by any country in finan-
cial history, and is about two and
one-half times the amount in this
country at the outbreak of the
World war. It is considerably more
than dollar-for-dollar backing for
all currency in circulation in this
About $280,000,000 was added to
this country's monetary gold dur-
ing the last year in imports from
European a n d South American
countries and $8,000,000 was im-
ported last week alone, principally
from South America and Central
America, and Mexico.
Concentration of gold in the
United States and France, which
together hold $7,000,000,000 'of the
world's total of $11,000,000,000, has
been given considerable attention
in banking circles and there are in-
dications of tendencies which will
bring a more equitable distribution
of the metal. Britain particularly
has depleted its resources. The
situation is regarded as largely a
post-war condition.
Three Killed by Southwestern
Tornadoes; 20 Hurt.
-Tornadoes struck in the south- I
west late Thursday, killing three
persons in Clinton, Okla:, and level-
ling oil derricks of Desdemona. Tex.
Twenty were injured by the storm
at Clinton, where damaged homes
were protected today by a National
Guard detail under command of
Capt. George D. Hanna. Ed Mc-
Clain, Red Cross field representa-
tive, led relief work.
A. W. Anderson, 54, Clinton gro-
cer, and his 81-year-old mother,
Mrs. Louise Anderson, were injured
fatally. The twister tossed their
store nearly a block. Charles Col-
lins, 23, electrician, stood on a wet
board as he pulled a high voltage
wire from the path of pedestrians.
Knocked to the ground, he arose,
told friends "I'm all right," and
then fell dead.
The frame annex of a school,
vacated by several hundred pupils
just an hour before, was destroyed
and brick walls of the school prop-
er were cracked. A tourist camp
was demolished and homes were

Secretary Thinks Campus, Halls
Provide Ideal Topics
for Ballads.
For some enterprising young bal-
lad writer, Dr. Frank E. Robbins,
assistant to the President, has a
suggestion to make which may lead
to Michigan's first publicized song-
hit. The suggestion, appearing in
today's issue of the Alumnus, con-
cerns the "Sidewalks of New York"
which, in comparison to the diag-
onal and other famous University
by-ways, seems dim and uninterest-
"Why should the sidewalks of
New York have a song all td them-.
selves and the corridors of our own
University hall remain unsung?"
asks Dr. Robbins. "Certainly there
is just as much life in the one place
as in the other-'boys and girls to-
gether' and all that. The whole
University passes this way once a
day at least. And as it passes, it
reads the signs and notices display-
ed on these venerable walls."
Then the Alumnus prints a list
of 16 items which were posted on
just one University bulletin board
in University hall on one of the
last days in February. The board
announced that:
(1) Michigan was going to play
Minnesota at hockey.
(2) Rabbi Leo Franklin was to

(6) The ancient University of
Marburg welcomes Americans atl

(7) The Wesleyan Guild an-
nounced a lecture.
(8) The Civil Service wanted five
new and assorted employes.
(9) Several cards stressinguEuro-

ES ENTERPRISING Sophomore Engineer
SONG- JIT SUBJECTS Class Chooses Blue

and Yellow Jackets
The design for the jackets which
will be worn during the next school
year by members of the engineer-
ing class of 1933 was decided upon
at a meeting of the class yesterday
The jacket chosen was one of
three submitted for consideration,
and was decided upon by an almost
unanimous vote. It will be of dark
blue material, with a yellow num-
eral monogram.
The monogram was designed by
Hugh Baker, '33E. It consists of a
large block "M" in yellow with a
smaller "E" in the center, on each
side of which are the class num-
It has long been a traditional
custom for members of the junior
class in the engineering college to
wear jackets denoting the position
of the class on campus.
Another myth has been dispelled by
research. Dr. J. G. Umstattd of the
University of Minnesota after an
extensive survey of the students
has found that the marks of stu-
dents earning part or all of their
expenses are as high as those of
the students who are not required
to work.

Variety of Numbers Prepared
for Program Thursday.
The Varsity band will present its
annual complimentary spring con-
cert at 8:15 o'clock next Thursday
night in Hill auditorium, Robert A.
Campbell, treasurer of the Univer-
sity and sponsor of the organiza-
tion, announced yesterday.
The band has been preparing for
this program since Christmas and
has included a variety of numbers
for presentation.
The number which will be espe-
cially of interest to music enthus-
iasts is Ravel's "Bolero" which, by
special permission by the composer,
will be presented on the program.
The rendition of this number will
mark the first time a college or-
ganization has ever attempted the
piece and will be one of the few
times any band has played it.
Another number which will be
included in the concert is "Dahse
Macabre," by Saint-Saens, which
has aroused comment in the past
when played by the band.
The membership' of the outfit for
the concert will be about 75, Nic-
holas Falcone, director, said. This
is one of the largest numbers the
concert band has ever had for a
spring concert, and inciudes a com-
plete instrumentation.

Chilean Fliers Chart
Out Maps of Country
SANTIAGO, Chile-(1P)-For the
first time a complete aerial map of
Chile is being made.
Vast stretches of unmapped ter-

be charted for the first time when
the national air corps completes its
work, just begun.
The fliers are making an air pic-

Besides the strategic value of the

Good Students Need
Vocational Guidance
Says Dr. Blumenthal
A large number of the students
that need -vocational guidance are
good students, but have let them-
selves get in a rut, according to the
statement of Dr. Gustave A. Blum-
enthal, vocational guidance expert,
who is interviewing students daily
at Lane hall following his all-cam-
pus forum address of Thursday.
Dr. Blumenthal was hearty in his
praise of the University as a whole,
and the people he had met here.
In this respect he stressed the val-
ue of the cosmopolitan atmosphere
which he said was of undoubted
value. The University should be a
great benefit to the development
of the student, he said, but the gen-
eral run of undergraduates should
be made to determine for them-
selves a policy leading to the ac-
complishment of their life purpose.
There are too many that do not
know what they are striving for
according to his statement.
"Many of the students that I
talked with," Blumenthal stated,
'were surprised at the problems
that I was able to clear up for
them." A large number were good
scholars he said, three of them pos-
sessing their A. B. degree.
Students who heard Blumenthal
talk on Thursday have been call-
