Scott, Ehlers To Teach
Students of the University who
contemplate attending the four-
teenth session of the Geological and
Geographical Field Station, to be
held from June 20 to.July 29 at Mills
Springs, Ky., should make their ap-
plications in the near future, accord-
ing to an announcement made yes-
terday by Prof. G. M. Ehlers, direc-
tor of the station. The total regis-
tration is limited to 45 graduate and
undergraduate students and a large
number have already expressed their
intentions of attending the station.
In an interview yesterday, Profes-
.sor Ehlers emphasized the fact that
the courses given in field instruction
correspond very closely to the work
done by government geologists in
making a professional survey. The
student is first given instruction in
field methods and the use of his in-
struments and then' is assigned a
definite area for special study. He
is thus placed in the same position
as a professional geologist and is
given the opportunity to apply his
previous training gat the University
in observing and interpreting the
various phenomena of his assigned
To M4e Map
During the course of the field in-
vestigation, the data collected or
checked by the instructors and in-
corporated in a large geological and
geographical map of the area which
is leing compiled by the members
of the staff of the station. This map
is very valuable, Professor Ehlers
said, because it gives unusual in-
formation, such as the location of
oil and gas wells, which no published
map, of the area slhows. Similar re-
ports made by the students and
based on their work at the station
have been published and have proved
of commercial and scientific value.
Such a paper, prepared by two for-
mer graduate students of the station,
has just been published by the Mich-
igan Academy of Arts, which met re-
cently in Ann Arbor.
After approximately a month of
intensive field work in the station
district,'the student geologists and ge-
ographers will take a reconnaissance

Aluiii Groups
To Gater For
Annual Reunion

Housing Facilities Are Pre-
pared For Members Of
28 Former Classes
Members of 28 University classes
will gather in Ann Arbor from all
parts of the country June 16 and 17
when fraternity houses and student
residences will be thrown open to
receive graduates returning for the
annual reunion of alumni here.
Among the returning alumni will
be members of the Emeritus Club,
an organization of members of all
classes graduated more than 50 years
ago. According to officers of the
Alumni Association, this group will
be guests at Helen Newberry Resi-
dence during the reunion.
Alumni officials expect the class of
'83 to have the largest attendance
because of the work done during the
past winter by Frederick W. Arbury,
of Empire, class head.
The classes of 25 years ago, those
of '08, are all planning reunions ex-
cept one. They are being assisted
financially by the photographic
studios of Bachrach, Inc.
A program has been arrange which
will include the Alumni Sing on the
steps of the Main Library Friday
night, a luncheon to be given by the

THE QUESTION: What made you
take up the roller-skating fad?
THE PLACE: Along the Diagonal.
THE ANSWERS : John Bishop,
'36E, Basin, Wyo: "For one thing
it's good exercise. For another it's
a lot of fun. It's not only both these,
but both combined in a fashion that
minimizes the amount of time re-
quired. Roller-skating is a darned
good idea."
Herbert M. Lebowitz, '36, Tarry-
town, N. Y.: "I live at a considerable
distance from the campus and a pair
of roller-skates facilitates my get-
ting to classes on time. Traveling at
such a rapid pace might also be
called recreational."
Harold Boyer-Jones, Ypsilanti:
"The exercising value of skating is
worthy of consideration. At any rate
it's, a form of sport. Furthermore,
it's something to do. Pardon me
while I exercise."
Violet Chulock, '35, Chicago, Ill.:
"It doesn't help me get to class any
quicker. It isn't very entertaining-
but what can you do at this time of
the year in a place like this?"

Says Collection
Of Class Dues
Is Neeessary,
Rea Shows How MoneyI
Is Employed To Cover
Many Expenditures
Collection of class dues is necessary
to meet debts accrued by the class
during its four year University pe-
riod, and to assure its continuance
for the five years previous to the first
reunion, according to Walter B. Rea,
assistant to the dean of students,j
who is in charge of handling class
accounts. The accounts are always
open to inspection.
Every class, during its four years
on the campus, must stand for a
series of expenses including a p'age inj
the Michiganensian, Mr. Rea ex-
pained. Moreover, this expense is in-
creased if any of the class dances
fail to make expenses.
At the time of graduation, a sum
of about $500 is needed to assure
the class enough to pay for letters
to its members, especially those that
notify alumni of the first class re-
union. All expenses previous to this
reunion must be provided for before
the class graduates.
Each class also contributes to the
Alumni Association. A card file of
all graduates, their class, their busi-
ness, place of residence, and other
similar data is preserved here. It is
also customary for each class to leave
to the school a class memorial. For
many years these consisted of funds
given to the Union or to the League.
Mr. Rea said that if class dues of
50 cents per year are collected, senior
dues will be low. In case dues are
not paid, it is necessary to omit the
names of those who fail to pay from
the class invitations and commence-
ment programs, he said.

The outbreak or revvolt now going
on in Cuba is merely a belated at-
tempt of the Cubans to free them-
selves from President Gerardo Ma-1
chado's dictatorship. according to
Prof. Arthur Aiton of the history de-;
partment. "Except for the fact that
the men who would have led the rev-
olution have been afraid of inter-
vention by the United States, under
the terms of the Platt Amendment,
the uprising would probably have
talen place long before this," Pro-
fessor Aiton said. "The United States'
policy in the Carribbean area has not
been to recognize governments com-
ing into power by force. The Cubans
were resitatnt about running this risk
"The Cuban people are tired of
Machado's presidential dictatorship
and the reign of terror he has in-
flicted on them," he declared. "Cuba
has also been extremely hard hit by
the depression and is in a bad eco-
nomic condition owing largely to the
slump in the sugar marget. There'
seems no chance of a change while
Machado is in power, so by ridding

Aiton continued. Numerous anti-

olution is being directed by these
"There has probably been a rule ofj
terror in Cuba for some time," Pro-#
fessor Aitn state(A. "The Cubans
have patterned after Americans in
taking their political opponents for
'rides.' They have also been using
what is known there as the 'law of
flight.' That is, when the government
captures a political enemy whose trial
would prove embarrassing, soldiers
take the victim out and order him to
run. While the man is running the
soldiers shoot him down, claiming
that they shot him as he was at-
tempting to escape."
"Somner Welles, the new United
States ambassador to Cuba, may be
able to accomplish a great deal in
straightening out Cuban affairs,"
Professor Aiton said. "He did a fine
piece of work in Santo Domingo, and
since the ambassador exercises no
little influence, may be able to do
the same in Cuba."

Plateau, the Great Valley of eastern
Tennessee, the Great Smoky Moun-

Atlantic Coastal Plain, all very sig-
nificant physiographic areas. The
reconnaissance trip will end in
Washington, where the students will
have the rare opportunity of attend-
ing several meetings of the Interia-
tional Geological Congress.
The courses given at the station
are primarily for undergraduates and
are under the direction of Prof. I. D.
Scott of the geology department,
Prof. R. B. Hall of the geography de-
partment, and Professor Ehlers.
Thpre is, however,ample opportunity
for those students who are properly
qualifled and desire to do graduate
work or special research.
Rocks Exposed
"The reason that the station is
located on the Cumberland River in
Kentucky," Professor Ehlers said, "is
that Kentucky is the nearest area to
Michigan in 'which a large number
of rock formations are exposed at the
surface. In Michigan, most of the
formations are covered with glacial
deposits, bed rock being exposed in
only a few widely-scattered places."
Of interest to the geographer, ac-
cording to Professor Ehlers, is the
fact that the weathering of the rock
formations has resulted in the for-
mation of various types of soil.
These types are studied by the
geographers, who note the various
soil types and map the different
types of crops grown on soils of dif-
ferent composition. In Michigan the
glaciers scooped up and mixed the
various types of soil; as a result it
is impossible to observe such inti-
mate relationships of crops to soil
types in this state as in Kentucky.
