he injured it in the class games

Pneumonia has been feared for

dislodge the implement before any
further progress could be made. In
the ensuing fracas, the sharp point
of the plow cut a large gash in
Gustafson's foot. He was taken to

treated until the infection became
so great that it was necessary to
remove him to the hospital.

HEIDELBERG, Germany, May 24.
-(EP)-The Heidelberg observatory

named "1932," which can attain a
proximity of 7,000,000 kilometers to

NEW YORK, May 24.-()-The
Heidelberg "planet" is a very small
object and a few miles in diameter.
It is one of the celestial bodies
usually called a planetoid.
More than 1,000 of these planet-
oids have been discovered in the
past few years. Most of them are
at a great distance from the earth
in orbits far out between Mars and
The largest of them is about the
size of England if that country
could be rolled into a ball. Most of
them are quite small and the im-
portance of this latest discovery is
its extreme closeness to the earth.

Experts to Scan Unemployment

ers and university economists and
sociologists next month when the
first University of Michigan Labor
institute will be held June 20 to 23.
Lectures and open discussions by
experts on both the practical and
academic aspects of the stabiliza-
tion (A empniloynent and the rela-
tion of the press to labor problems
will feature the meeting, it was an-
nounced by Dr. Charles A. Fisher,
assistant director of the University
Extension division, which, with the
department of economics and the
Michigan Federation of Labor, is
sponsoring the institute.
Plan Frank Discussion.
A frank discussion of the extent,
causes and remedies of the situation
is planned, without special expla-
nations, viewpoints or panacea, In-
terchange of ideas and information
between the fields of labor and edu-
cation is the fundamental object of
the institute.
Morning mneetings will be given
over to addresses on phases of the
problem and discussion from the
floor; afternoons will be occupied
by free group discussion of the
morning's subjects; while during
the evening lectures will be given
by authorities on labor and eco-
nomics. At the first meeting on
Monday evening at the Michigan
Union, Pres. Alexander G. Ruthven
will welcome the visitors and John

pices of the University Extension
Service and the Michigan State

with addresses by Dr. Margaret

nent and R. B. lall of the Geogra-
phy depa rtment.
The delegates were entertained at
t tea given in Betsy Barbour dormi-
tory alter the conferences.
Prof. Campbell Speaks.
Speaking of the kind of produc-
tions which should be given by the
Little Theater, Professor Campbell
expressed his inability to prescribe
a set of rules that would insure the
success of all dramatic productions,
but pointed out that there are cer-
tain tendencies which should be
followed in the selection of plays
for amateur productions. "There
ar~e good plays being written in
America these dlays by American
dramatists," said Professor Camp-
bell, "and it is too bad that more
of them are not played."
He admitted that most of the
rules that he was setting forth were
contradicted by the popularity of
"There's Always Juliet" which was
played last night but explained the
difference on the grounds that ex-
perienced actors can put over plays
which are very difficult for ama-
(eurs to produce.
'Professor Hall, speaking of the
P over-population of Japan and the
Ishortage Of food, expressed an opin-
ion that the recent disturbances in
Manchuria are an outgrowth of the
crowded conditions in Japan. "Ja-
pan is increasing its population,,"
said he, "and canont keep pace in
the increase of its food supply."

A meeting was held in Lane I tall
last night of all the students inter-
ested in the follow-up work of the
Fresh Air camp. This group has for
its purpose as outlined by Harry
Graham, -'33, chairman of the Stu-
dent; Christian association execu-
tive comin ttee on Student Fellow-
S;ip to reate contacts with the
boys that attend the camp, to assist
them in establishing higher ideals,
and to help them take advantage of
the greater opportunities in life."r
The men at the meeting have
made definite plans to contact with
some of these boys in Detroit. The,
need for this work was realized
when the case study of 90 of these
boys was revealed by Marshall H.
Levy, of the Sociology department.
Forty-six per cent of the boys stud-
ied are now socially well adjusted,
and 54 per cent have some slight
maladjustment that such work as
the Student Fellowship committee
is advocating could cure.
According to Louis Riemann, the
originator of the camp, this is one
of the most progressive steps that
has been taken by the individuals
controling the cain). tie said that
tae considers this proposed actioni a
necessary corollary to the comple-
tion of the camp's activities.

Mr. Baker outlined the plans andx
aims of the Communist party by1
saying that Communism aimed tol
arbolishn capitalism by revolutiont
and substitute a system. of non-ex-

ists in this country are organized to

Stiar Lasing Pitcher Will Try
to Master Wolves.
Left-handed Charlie Griffin, star
Michigan State pitcher, will at-
I tempt to continue his complete
mastery over the Michigan nine
when the two teams clash at East
Lansing this afternoon.
Griffin, a senior on the Spartan
baseball squad, has taken a great
personal delight in beating the
Maize-and- Blue nines during the
past three years, and only once has
he failed to completely subjugate
the Wolverines.
The lone failure was recorded
during the first meeting of these
two teams this season, when they
played a 3 to .3 tie in sixteen in-
nings, oi Ferry Field, May 3.
Michigan is somewhat bowed by
a pair of defeats last week-end at
the hands of the Purdue and Illinois
nines, both games being lost due to
mental slowness. Practically the
1 same lineup that faced the Boiler-
[ makers will take the field for the
Wolverines this afternoon. Manuel,
rDaniels, Waterbor, and Superke will
comprise the infield with Braendle,
Petoskey, and Wistert playing the
f outfield. McNeal and Tompkins are
