Scout Leaders
Organize New
Type Of Troop
Hikes and weekly meetings will
constitute the fall program of a new
Boy Scout troop which will hold its
first meeting at 7:30 p. m. tomorrow
in Lane Hall.
Wallace F. Watt, Boy Scout execu-
tive in Ann Arbor, will be present
and will attempt to acquaint the
boys with their student leaders and
the advisory committee. Although
,here are other Scout troops in the
,ity, this troop which is being spon-
sored by the Student Christian Asso-
ciation is the first one in which only
students and faculty will take an ac-
tive part.
The advisory committee is com-
posed of three men from the Univer-
sity, Mr. Herbert P. Wagner, chief
accountant, Prof. Jackson A. Shar-
man of the education school, and Dr.
Frank Lynam of the Health Service.
The student leaders are all Eagle
Scouts and have had experience in
Scout work and management of boys.
The students who will direct the
activities of the new troop are Bruce
Klein, '35E, Carl J. Holcomb, '34F&C,
James Merry, '36, and Willard Hilde-
brand, '35.

The drive for the Speakership nomination is reaching a feverish
pitch as Democrats ponder the organization of the House in the new
Congress. Rep Henry T. Rainey (below), floor leader, and Rep. John
E. Rankin (upper left), chairman of the veterans' committee, are al-
ready in the field, but formal announcement in behalf of Rep. John
McDuffie (upper right), the party whip, is soon expected by his friends.
