The annual average increase for ;the

This, he declared, "would be im-

Stalin announced his .plans in a

40 Below Mild To
Owl's Head Folks
OWL'S HEAD, N. Y., Jan. 10.-(P)
-The inhabitants of Owl's Head,
known as New York state's coldest
town, are fretting about the mild
weather. Only once this season has
the temperature been down to 40
below zero.
Forty below is just a nice brisk day
for Owl's Head, where it is nothing
at all to walk two blocks to the post-
office in January and arrive with an
icicle hanging to your nose.
Called the "icebox" of New York,
and by reputation as cold a spot as
there is in the eastern states, Owl's
Head nestles among Adirondack up-
lands not far from the Canadian
border. To its peculiar position, ex-
posed to northwe.st winds and cut
off by high hills from warm south-
erlies, is attributed the frigid weather]
at owl's Head, while at Malone, a
dozen miles away, the mercury aver-
ages 10 degrees higher.
The tiny lumbering village has in-
habitants who insist that in the "old
days" temperatures of 60 degrees
were not 'uncommon, .and it might
have been colder but the mercury in
the tube .ouldn't squeeze any lower.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.- (P) -
Miss Grace Abbott. chief of the chil-
dren's bureau, which disclosed the
extent of the "wandering boy" prob-
lem, today voiced opposition to a
concentration of the. obless youths
in federal military camps.
"Such a plan would stimulate wan-
dering, rather than check it," Miss
Abbott said. "I believe the flare 'f
publicity which would inevitably at-
tend the establishment of such camps
would prompt boys to leave home and
try them out."
Senator Couzens (R., Mich.) is
preparing a bill to open army camps
to boys now hitch-hiking their way
from city to city. Another interested
in the problem is Senator Cutting
(R., N. M.), who has prepared legis-
lation for a $10,000,000 outright grant
to states to care for the youths.
Miss Abbott said she had not seen
the Couzens plan, but restated her
position that any federal financial'
aid should- be administered through
state and local agencies. She pro-
nounced the Cutting proposal as
"I would favor having some money
allocated to the, return of some of
these boys to their homes-in cases
where investigation showed that the
feasible solution," she said. "Many of
them are very sorry they ever went

Here is the story A couple of years

ind other eastern universities who
gave seen the head have insisted tha]
I is a rather fine Roman work of the
?lavian period. Upon learning where
he head was found, they have, ac-.
R cording to Prof. J. B. Smith of the
irt department, "been somewhat em-
arrassed." In truth, Professor Smith
vas himself somewhat embarrassed.
Wctoo thinks it's a very nice Roman
lead. And the mystery, he says, "in-
solves the scholastic reputation of
;everal learned members of the ]e-
?artment of Art and Archaeology."
The head is about life size and
weighs approximately 40 pounds. A

break across the neclk indicates that
it is a piece of good and perhaps
Italian marble, although the color of
the exposed surface has turned to
gray, as if worn by weather and ex-
posure to a sooty atmosphere.
"The head was presented to me by
the Princeton campus police," Prof.
Smith said. "Classic heads have been
found in strange places, but to date
this is the first classic head, either
Greek or Roman, to be found rolling
about the Princeton campus on the
evening of commencement."
The questions which the Princeton
alumni want answered are:
1. Whom does the head represent?
2. What style is it? 3. What is its
date? 4. Who stole it and why and
where? 5. How did it come to be
found on the Princeton campus?
And the reward for the nicest, if
not the most correct, answers is $2.50.

Economic Situation To Be
Discussed Over Nation
Wide Radio Hook-Up
More than 3,000 college men and
women from all parts of the .United
States will convene Jan. 23 in the
Civic Auditorium at Pasadena, Calif.,
to hear Dr. Albert Einstein and sev-
eral other prominent personalitiesl
speak en "The World Economic Sit-1
uation." The program, which isbe-
ing sponsored by the Southern Cal-
fornia Student Body Presidents As-
sociation, will be broadcast -over a
nation-wide hook-up.
The success of the similar meeting:
on "World Armaments," held by.the
group last year, was cited as being°
directly responsible, for the student
eecutives decision to-sponsor a- ses-j
sion this month during .which time;
Dr. Einstein will be studying lih' Cali-
forma.. ,
The 193.2 meeting was the first of
its kind ever to be. held, its concep-
tion'and managexient being entirely
reliant on student initiative' reides
Dr. Einstein, Dr. Charles A. Beard,
noted government and American. his-
tory authority; Dr. Robert .A..Milli-1
kin, winner of the Nobel 'Prize; and
Dean 1 cHenry; who was student
professor at the University of Cali-
fornia last year, featured the 1932
meeting. The program was enthusi-
astically received according to' offi-
cials, and attended by a capacity
"Publir Opinion Abused"
The purpose of these meetings
staged by collegians is, according to
sponsors, to help the objective con-
sideration of the basically important
problems which are now confront-
ing the civilized world. Further, the
spnsoring body of eleven student
presidents said, "Public opinion is a
much abused term. Sometimes it is.
merely a" cloak for the energetic
propaganda which is stirred up from
motives of self-interest. Possibly this
situation can be remedied to some
extent if college students will do
what they can to demonstrate the
possibility of having great public
problems discussed in an objective.
and intelligent way"n
Speaking ol the relation of Dr.
VMilhikin Discusses Einstein
Einstein's visit of last year to the
program on which the German sa-
hant appeared, Dr. Millikin said,
"Professor Einstein's interest has
gone beyond the field of science. His
interest in the development of inter-
national understanding has been
wholesome and has spread beyond
the mere local group with whom he
has had immediate contact.
"Indeed, it was the public's interest
in his reactions to the present inter-
national situation which made pos-
sible the large program in the in-
terest of public opinion sponsored by
the 'Southern California group last
Feb. 27. This program, delivered be-
fore a tremendous audience, which
even filled the overflow hall, and
which was carried far because of its
being broadcast and the newspaper
publicity that it received, exerted a
powerful influence in stimulating
throughout the American public an
interest in our national and inter-
national policies."

To Place Rare
In' Alu mni HallI
. 1
A rare collection of JapaneseI
prints, brought to the University
under the auspices of the Divisionj
:)f Fine 'Arts, will be placed on exhi-
bition in the West Galler'y of Alumni
Memorial Hall from Jan..10 through
Jan. 21. The exhibit . can be seen
daily from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. during
the week, and from 1:30 p. m. to 5
p. m. on Sundays. This collection
was arranged by the College Art As-
sociation through the courtesy of Ya-
inapaka and Company of New York
City. .
These prints, called "Omi-ye," arel
from Japanese shrines and temples.1
Years ago Sadajiro Yamanaka began
collecting and' gathering every type'
and subject that he could find. This
led to an 'Omi-yc''fad which caused
a great scarcity of the prints. Today
it would be practically impossible to
make another collection similar to
the one on exhibit.
These prints are portraits .of theI
images )vhich are worshipped in the
Japanese temples. They are used in
the temples' or shrines for distribu-
tion among the worshippers or,
sometimes, they were given to the
temples to provide for 'the future
happiness of the donor's ancestors.
Besides nearly 100 prints, some of
which were made as early as the year
f1400, there are four Chinese prints
included in the exhibit called "Tun
Huang." These are Buddhistic hand
colored wood block prints of the sev-
enth century. From these the Jap-
anese adopted their "Oii-ye."
Professor Bruce M. Donaldson, of
the fine arts department, stated that
"this exhibit is an excellent assembly
of a hitherto little-shown type of
Japanese art.'and is especially inter-
esting for its unique character."

Jig-Saw Puzzles All The
Rage; Sell 150 -A Week
An evening's entertainment may be
had.for a quarter through the solv-
ing of jig-saw puzzles, if.-yourmind
runs in the right direction. The re-
vival of this old pastime, which was
first looked upoti as a Christmas fad,
has continued despite the depression
and the puzzles are still being sold,
according to local store-keepers, who
are doubtful as to how long the sales
will continue.
It is estimated that 150 are sold
weekly in the vicinity of the campus,
ranging in price from 15 cents to $4,
depending on the quality of the puz-
zle and the number of pieces con-
tained. There are as many as 150 to
300 pieces in a set, which means that
two people often: spend more than
two hours in assembling one.
Puzzles are mounted on cardboard
or ply-wood and are usually wood-
land or-outdoor scenes. One of the
most unique creations is a puzzle,
which, on being assembled, proves to
be a greeting card. *

HouSing Pla ns
Shown In New
Exhibition Here'
A study of hillside housing, pre- I
pared during the summer months of
1932 under the direction 1f Henry
Wright, noted New York architect,
was placed on exhibition last Monday
in the large exhibition room of the
Architectural Building. The exhibi-
tion, which consists of sketches and
models, will last for about 10 days.
Collaborators in this project were
William'R. Ballard, Frederic G.
Frost, Jr.,: Kenneth' S. Kassler, and
Herbert Parkinson. Studies and
models were prepared by William R.
Huntington, Allan A. Twichell, Grad.,
and Lucinda Ballard., Practicing ar-
chitects served as critics.
The exhibit is a study of the re-
clamation of waste'hillside land for
the purpose of building inexpen-
sive,. attractive, and desirable group
houses for persons of moderate in-
comes. An economy plan similar to
this is in use in Europe.
Hillsides heretofore neglected but.
often conveniently accessible to the
business centers of cities, as well as
to high class suburbs, can be advan-
tageously utilized. This plan is ex-
pected to replace slums, rehabilitate
blighted areas, and create new neigh-,
borhoods as they are actually needed.
Models show the various economic
plans :as scientifically drawn up.
