"The Child and the Curriculum" is
the title of a talk to be given on the
radio parent hour at 6 p. m. today
by Prof. Clifford Woody of the edu-
cation school, according to the pro-
gram for the week as announced by
Prof. Waldo Abbot, director of broad-
casting.
Professor Woody's talk is to be the
first of a series of three on the gen-
eral subject of reconstruction in edu-
cation at the elementary school level.
The series is especially arranged for
the Parent Teacher Association.
Daily broadcasts over WJR, De-
troit, from the Morris Hall studios
here, arranged by the University Ex-
tension Division, begin their second
week today, with nine regular per-
iods during the week, one or more
programs being offered every day ex-
cept Saturday.
Conservation will be the keynote
on the w e e k 1 y adult education
program at 10 p. m. Wednesday. Prof.
Shirley W. Allen of the forestry
school will speak on "The Achieve-
ments of the Civilian Conservation
Corps," and Prof. Howard M. Wight,
also of the forestry school, will dis-
cuss suggestions for pheasant man-
agement in southern Michigan, based
on a research project which he has
conducted.
On the second of a series of pro-
grams devoted to political science,
Floyd E. McCaffree of the political.
science department will speak at 2
p. m. Wednesday on "American Gov-
ernment."
"The Collecting of Zoological Spec-
imens" will be the topic of Prof. Ar-
thur E. Woodhead of the zoology de-
partment at 2 p. m. Thursday, in the
second weekly talk on the general
subject of zoology.
The vocational series at 2 p. m. on
Friday will present Dean Clare E.
Griffin of the School of Business Ad-
ministration, speaking on "The Pre-
paration for Business." These talks
are arranged especially for high
school assemblies, and 17 vocations
and professions will be discussed dur-
ing the series.
Each of the Tuesday talks will be
presented one week later than origi-
nally scheduled, because of the fact
that transmission difficulties last
week prevented the broadcast. Al-
bert H. Marckquardt will speak at 2
p. m. next Tuesday on Chaucer.
Find Evidence
Of Huge Pools
In Bank Stoclk
WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.-(P)-
Senate investigators had evidence
today- of three more huge pools in
Chase National bank stock to swell
the records already built up of six
operations involving more than $200,-
000,000 worth of securities.
Before completing their picture of
the pool operations in the bank stock
by its affiliate, the Chase Securities
corporation, the investigators plan-
ned, however, to look into the com-
pany's Cuban loans.
The inquiry will resume Monday,
with questioning of Albert H. Wig-
gin, the $100,000-a-year r e t i r e d
chairman of the bank, about the
Cuban loans, but will quickly turn
back to the pool operations.
The investigating committee was
making headway in its effort to ob-
tain evidence on stock market opera-
tions, particularly pools and margin
accounts. An agreement was reached
to send questionnaires to the 1,375
exchange members directly instead
of through the exchange.
Most of Friday was spent straight-
ening out this controversy with the
exchange, but it turned back to
the Chase inquiry late in the day to
disclose a $100,000,000 pool opera-

tion in the bank stock managed by
the securities corporation.
It was the biggest pool operation
of the kind so far discovered by the
investigating committee.
The pool, which was opened in
April, 1922, bought $12,630 of the
old Chase shares and 442,934 of the
new at a total cost of $103,216,184.
A profit of $321,000 was recorded,
but participating members absorb-
ed a balance of 38,400 shares at a
loss.

Dorothy Sands, whom Vogue has
termed "the supreme contemporary
mistress ofnimitation," will present a
most ambitious program in her one-
woman show to be offered Nov. 1 in
Hill Auditorium by the Oratorical
Association.
"Our Stage and Stars," a pageant,
of American theater memories from
the Revolution to the present day,
calls for Miss Sands to impersonate
nine famous actresses in the history
of our stage, according to Carl G.
Brandt, business manager of the as-
sociation.
As Miss Sands has arranged her
program, she appears in evening;
dress at the opening of the program
and between acts to explain briefly
the progress of the American the-
ater. This arrangement calls for
some 18 changes of costume during
the evening, each to be accomplished
in about a minute, Mr. Brandt says.
In "Our Stage and Stars," Miss
Sands' 1933 show, the actress pre-
sents first a scene from the first
American comedy, "The Contrast,"'
then goes on to the frontier theater
of the 1820's, the theater of the gold,
rush and mining camps, those of the
romantic '70's and Tony Pastor's day
and into the twentieth century.
Impersonations of movie vampires
now and then will conclude the pro-
gram, with Miss Sands imitating[
Greta Garbo and Mae West, today's

"styles in vamps," in contrast with
Theta Bara, a star of the screen in
1913.
Miss Sands first rose to fame for
her impersonations in "The Grand
Street Follies." Last year she cre-
ated her own show, "Styles in Act-
ing," a review which was acclaimed
by critics everywhere.
Others to appear on the lecture
series of the Oratorical Association
this year will be Edna St. Vincent
Millay, contemporary American poet,
Nov. 15; Col. Raymond Robins, au-
thority on Soviet Russia, Dec. 12;
Air Commodore P. F. M. Fellowes,
leader of the British expedition which
fiew over Mt. Everest, Jan. 25; Capt.
C. W. R. Knight, authority on bird,
life, Feb. 20; and Dr. Amos O. Squire,
consulting physician at Sing Sing
Prison, Mar. 1.

Will Rogers Downs
Farley With Lasso
On Good Will Tour
ANACACHO RANCH, (Near Texas-
Mexico Border), Tex., Oct. 21.-(P)-
James A. Farley, postmaster general,
knows today that "son-of-a-gun" in
cowboy parlance means a meat stew.
But he didn't find out until after
Will Rogers, humorist, had roped him
by the heels as he ran down a pri-
vate right-of-way at the R. W. Mor-
rison ranch.
Vice President Garner, the post-
master general, Rogers and others in
the party flying through Texas on a
good will tour, were overnight guests
here, the largest saddle horse breed-
ing ranch in the nation. Farley was
roped during a rodeo. After his down-
fall, Rogers roped, and threw face
downward, L. W. Roberts, assistant
secretary of the United States treas-
ury, and Eugene Vidal, federal direc-
tor of aeronautics.
No Casualties
Reported From
Cuban Disaster
Santiago Train Is Derailed
When Explosion Blows
Up 400 Feet Of Track
HAVANA, Oct. 21.-(A')-The loco-
motive and two baggage cars on the
Santiago express were derailed early
today when an explosion blew up
nearly 400 feet of track near the
town of Fmpalme, Matanzas prov-
ince, about 50 miles from Havana.
There were no casualties.k
The explosion came amidst unset-
tled labor conditions that grew more
serious steadily, despite the govern-
ment's vigorous moves to settle the
difficulties.
Railroad connections between Ha-
vana 'and points east of Matanzas
province were stopped by a strike of
railroaders who seek annulment of a
rule which pevents the transfer of
employes from one division to an-
other.
The strikers claim the rule pre-
vents many veteran employes from
taking jobs on other divisions on the
basis of their seniority in the event
they are laid off because of a lack
of business in their own divisions.
Meanwhile, as police and soldiers
were placed at car barns to prevent
a threatened strike of tram workers
sympathizing with the railroaders,
Havana milk distributors and bakers
went on strike.
The government continued to move
swiftly today to thwart what it con-
sidered a 'revolutionary plot by op-
positionists, simultaneously casting
an apprehensive' eye at the railroad
strike. Some political leaders feared
a general strike might develop.
At least eleven oppositionitsin-
cluding some members of the ABC
(student secret :society)-were ar-
rested during the night and charged
with conspiracy against the govern-
ment.
The homes of many other oppo-
sitionists were searched by soldiers
and police.

oh-so-good-looking styles in velvet, many co-eds have
looked longingly but have resisted the temptation to
buy that softest of materials. Their thoughts go to one
rainy evening, or a few wears - and then having it
cleaned by just an ordinary cleaner. Naturally the
picture that comes to them is of that dress that was
once so attractive, looking limp and bedraggled. But
not if it is cleaned by MICROCLEAN; velvet comes back
to you front our shop looking as fresh and silky as when
it was new. You need not hesitate to buy velvet now
