HEALTH PROBLEMS i
Of MODERN CHILD

Addresses Delegates to White
House Conference at
Opening Session.
CITES AIM OF MEETING
Sees Need of Strength to Face
Increasing Pressure of
Modern Life.
(8y Associacd Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 19.-How to
endow the future American child
with the mental and physical
strength needed to cope with the
pressure of a magic, mechanized
world was the problem laid by
President Hoover tonight before his
White House conference on child
health and protection.
Mr. Hoover spoke in Constitution
hall at the opening session of the
conference and asserted that the1
fundamental purpose of the 2,500
delegates was to set forth an un-
derstanding of those safeguards
which will assure to children health
in mind and body.
Problems of Society.
"The problems of tne child are
not always the problems of the
child alone," he said. "In the vision
of the whole of our social fabric,
we have loosened new ambitions,
new energies; we have produced a
complexity of life for which there
is no precedent. With machines
ever enlarging man's power and
capacity, with electricity extending
over the world its magic, with the
Air giving us a wholly new realm,
our children must be prepared to
ieet entirely new contactsand new
forces. They must be physically
strong and mentally placed to
stand up under the increasing pres-
sure of life. Their problem is not
alone one of physical health, but
of mental, emotional, spiritual
health.
Seek Answers.
"These are the problems that I
char e you to answer. This task
thatg you have come here to per-
form has never been done before.
These problems are not easily
answered. They reach the very root
of our national life. We need to
meet them squarely and to accuse
ourselves as frankly as possible, tc
see all the implications that trail
in our wake, and to place the blame
where it lies and set resolutely to
attack it."
The Chief Executive told the
conference that the problem falls
into three groups: first, the protec-
tion and stimulation of the norma
child; second, aid to the physically
defective and handicapped child;
third, the problems of the delin-
quent child.
RISEMAN TO TALK
AT CAMPUS FORUM
Detroit Attorney Will Discuss
"Unemployment Insurance."
Relief for the present unemploy-
ment situation and preventative
measures for similar crises in the
future will be taken up by Harry
Riseman, well-known Detroit at-
torney, at 4:15 today in room D.
Alumni Memorial hall at an all-
campus forum on the subject, "Un-
employment Insurance."
Riseman is chairman of the
Michigan Old Age Pension League,
and has long been known in Detroit
and throughout the state as an
active worker for the cause of un-
employment insurance. He has
often co-operated with the state
legislators at Lansing in formulat-
ing bills for the relief of the un-
employed as well as various types
of social legislation.
The speaker is probably better
known to the public at large for
his political activity in connection
with the election of Frank Murphy

as mayor of Detroit. He is said to
be a close friend of the present
mayor.

COUNCIL PROPOSES
PEP RALLY ON DAY

in Field House Shortly
Before Contest.
BROWN MAY GIVE TALKi
Council Will Seek Vacation for
Students on Friday after
Thanksgiving Day.
Progress of plans for a short pep
meeting immediately preceding the
Chicago game Saturday was re-
ported at the meeting of the Stu-
dent council last night. Attempts
are being made to secure Bob
Brown, '2G, former Wolverine cap-
tain and star center, and Henry
Grinnell, '28, to address the rally
which will be held at 1:15 o'clock in
the Yost Field house providing the
building may be obtained for the
occasion.
Departing from the usual custom
of holding the football pep meet-
ings the Friday nights before the
games, the cou-ncil felt that enthu-
siasm would be sustained to a
greater degree if the Saturday date
were chosen. With a tie for the
conference in the balance, a large
turn-out is expected for the assem-
bly.
Favor Football Banquet. -
Other business transacted at the
meeting included the passing of a
resolution that a committee of one
be appointed to see University of-
ficials regarding the dismissal of
classesgfor Friday following
Thanksgiving.

Selling of Tickets
for Chicago Game
Tickets for the Michigan-Chicago
football game are being sold in Ann
Arbor for the benefit of charity un-
der a distribution plan devised by
Mayor Edward W. Staebler and a
sub-committee. Members of the
committee are J. Karl Malcolm,
chairman, Russell Dodge, V. O. Nel-
son, and Mayor Staebler.
Each major city in the state has
been sent at least $100 worth of
football tickets which, if sold, will i
be turned over in full to Governor
Green for state-wide relief of un-
employment. Ann Arbor's quota
has been nearly subscribed to date
and several hundred more tickets
are being placed on sale at promi-
nent local stores. All tickets thus
sold will count toward the $150,000
which is hoped to result from the
Green distribution plan.
Places at which tickets are being.
sold for the game are Farmers and
Mechani's Banks, Ann Arbor Sav-
ings Bank,, Crippen Drug stores,
Chamber of Commerce and City'
Hall buildings, Young Men's Chris-
tian association, Staebler Oil com-
pany, Quarry Drug store, Huston

stores.

governor were to send the money

(Copyright, 1930, by the A.P.)
S. S. AMERICA, Nov. 19.-The
unwritten code of the sea today
caused 27 men and one woman, al-
ready physically exhausted from
hours of battling to save their sink-
ing ship, to choose the hardest path
of rescue after the Swedish cargo
steamer Ovidia had foundered off
the grand banks of Newfoundland.
Through most of last night the
United States liner America, the
British Cunard vessel Mauetania
and the United States shipping
board vessel Endicott had raced to
aid the stricken vessel before it
sank.
