for Breeding.
"In order to keep up the quan-
tity and value of the fur crop, the
entire economic status of each fur-
bearer must be ascertained through
scientific research and reported so
widely and thoroughly as to be
comprehended by farmers a n d
sportsmen," said Prof. Ned Dear-
born, of the forestry zoology de-
partment, in his address yesterday
afternoon during the University
broadcasting program.
Discusses Fur Crop
"Other information touching the
bearing of this crop on the welfare
of a vast number of country folk,
town merchants, and wearers of
dressed fur everywhere, must be
disseminated until the general pub-
lic realizes its worth," he continued.

"Mayor FranK Murphy of Detroit
is taking care of the pressing un-
employment situation in that city
in a systematic fashion which has
won him the applause and atten-
tion of critics all over the country,"
stated Prof. A. E. Wood of the soci-
ology department in an interview
Y ryesterday, while discussing condi-
tions in the Michigan metropolis.
"There are two main problems in
combatting unemployment," Profes-
sor Wood declared, "first, the or-
ganization of the men out of work,
and secondly, the organization of
facilities to supply them with em-
oloyment. Mayor Murphy has met
both of these problems capably,
dealing with the first by taking a
census of the men out of work, the
figures of which approached nearly
100,000. The second problem he has
met by centralizing the casual work,

that there must also be a change
of heart among the trappers, which
will prompt them to provide for
next year's crop by leaving suffi-
cient breeding animals alive when
this year's crop has been harvested.

Zoologist Makes Investigations
on Isle Royale.
Five months of field investiga-
tions for the University museum
of zoology have just been complet-
ed by Dr. Adolph Murie, assistant
curator of mammals in the muse-
Beginning late in April, he con-
tinued his studies on Isle Royale,
Mich., where he had begun the pre-
vious summer. He arrived there as
soon as navigation was possible,
oven then finding ice in the bays
and snow still under the heavy
tree growth. From Isle Royale he
went to the Canadian region north
of Lake Superior to undertake
studies of the fauna.
The remaining time was spent in
the region of Jackson Hole, Wyo.,
where he collected specimens of
mammals and made numerous
field observations. He cooperated
in the elk studies which are being
carried on there by Dr. Olaus
Marie of the United States biolo-
gical survey, a former student in
the museum of zoology, and now in
charge of the greatest elk herd in
the world. The Michigan investi-
gator also assisted the investiga-
tion committee of the Senate which
visited Jackson Hole, on hatters
pertainingto the holdings of the
federal parks and forest service in
the region, and to the administra-
tign of the biological survey.

r Washtenaw county during the year
A 10 per cent salary slash, pro-
posed Monday by the salary com-
mittee of the county board of su-1
pervisors, but held up until thel
following day, was passed yester-
day afternoon by the board, by a
19 to 10 vote.
Passage of the proposal, which
when first announced precipitated
a heated discussion among the su-
pervisors, came as a surprise.. It
was believed by most board mem-
bers that the proposal would be
voted down.
L. 0. Cushing, chairman of the
county board of auditors, said the
wage cut would mean a savings of
approximately $9,000. The present
payroll of county officials and em-
ployees is $90,000.
The salary committee which
drew up the report was composed
of Supervisors Charles Pardon and
Herman Ehnis, of Ann Arbor, and
George Alber, Sharon township.
In first proposing the wage re-
duction, the salary committee said
tha; the supervisors were in "such
a position" that economy should
be effected, pointing out that the
lower cost of living, the present
economic depression, and the in-
creasing amount of delinquent tax-
es was sufficient reason for econ-I
omic procedure.
