The annual report of Camp Davis,
the University owned camp in Wy-
oming where surveyors learn their
finest field work, will soon be issued
from the office of the department of
geodesy. and surveying, according to
Prof. Clarence T. Johnston, depart-
ment head. Filled with camp photos,
finances, and research problems, the
volume now in preparation gives a
complete picture of the activities of
the summer session just completed.
The 1933 edition of the report,
which runs true to form with about
150 pages of text and 25 photographs,
will raise the number of survey camp
reports now on file in the engineer-
ing library to more than 20. This
year's report will be the fifth for
the Wyoming camp, which was oc-
cupied by University classes for the
first time in 1928.
Although it is located 1,700 miles
from Ann Arbor, Professor Johnston
considers the c a m p excellently
placed. He recalls visiting the site in
1904 with Prof. Joseph B. Davis, a
pioneer of the Michigan engineering
faculty after whom the camp is
named, and realizing then what an
ideal place it was for a summer sur-
veying camp. But the trip was made
by wagon, over rough roads, and they
both thought it only a dream. To-
day, with use of the camp made fea-
sible by good roads and automobiles,
the long trip has a distinct advan-
tage in showing students a great va-
riety of topography.
The curse of survey camps in,
northern Michigan is brush cutting,'
according to Professor Johnston, who
said students sometimes had to spend
half their time clearing brush instead
of studying surveying. The old sur-
vey camp was at Douglas Lake, nearl
Cheboygan, where the University Bi-
ological Station is now located.
Not the least of the advantages of
the University's 120 acre Wyoming
tract is the beauty of the scenery.
Nearby are mountains for mountainZ
climbers, as high as 14,000 feet. The

camp is only 70 miles south of Yel-
lowstone National Park, where all the
35-odd students spend at least three
days. Numerous side-trips are made
week-ends into the surrounding
country.
Summer sessions at Camp Davis
coincide in time with summer ses-
sions in Ann Arbor, lasting eight
weeks. Advanced students in geod-
esy and surveying, and civil engi-
neering students take there special
courses which are not offered in Ann
Arbor. More and more students
from other schools, particularly
western schools, are attending Camp
Davis, Professor Johnston said.
Besides the surveying camp in Wy-
oming, and the Biological Station at
Douglas Lake, the University has a
summer camp for study of geology
and geography in Kentucky, and an-
other for the study of forestry in the
Upper Peninsula.
Fairy Stories Will
Be On Display In
University Library
Children's books, covering a range
from romantic stories of Robin Hood
to the realism of tales about ma-
chines, will be exhibited in the Gen-
eral Library during the next two
weeks. The exhibit presents collection
of books chosen for their illustra-
tions, which vary from the beautiful
artistry of Howard Pyle to simple
drawings of industrial tools and pho-
tographic illustrations.
Like wandering in another world,
the college student, who has only a
memory of the marvelous tales that
he read in his childhood, will find
in this exhibit all the adventures and
romances that he lived through years!
ago. King Arthur is there with his
knights of the round table all ready
to hop off in search of the Grail. The
picture book of Mother Goose, with
the old illustrations by Hoder, will re-
mind the I ostoevski-hardened scho-
lar of the dog that stole the bone
out of the cupboard, while Mother
Hubbard was out for a walk. And
all the other tales and rhymes are3
there to stimulate and recall old
readings.
Recovery Plan
Is Discussed By
Prof. Dickinson

No temporary reorganization of
the administrative set-up of the Uni-
versity will be effected during the
time President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven is in Egypt, he explained yes-
terday.
Instead, regular affairs that come
up for consideration during the pe-
riod will be handled by the usual
staff officers. For example, Vice-
president Shirley W. Smith will have
charge of finances, Vice-president
James D. Bruce will control Univer-
sity relations, and educational prob-
lems will be under the jurisdiction of
Vice-president Clarence S. Yoakum.
Henry C. Anderson, director of
student and alumni relations, will
supervise all affairs having to do
with either students or alumni. Any
major problems that may arise dur-
ing the time Dr. Ruthven is away
will be transmitted directly to him
and to the members of the Board
of Regents. Officials here will be in
constant contact with him during
the course of his trip.
Dr. Ruthven pointed out that there
will be no real necessity for any one
official to take over the presidency
while he is away, for the period is
usually the quietest of the entire year
as far as administrative details are
concerned, and, in addition, nearly
half of the total time he is away will
be while the University is dismissed
for Christmas vacation.
The exact date on which Dr. and
Mrs. Ruthven will leave Ann Arbor
has not been set, although they will
sail from New York City Dec. 12.
Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at St.
Lawrence University last week was
made to forfeit its $50 bond posted
with the student council on the
grounds that it had violated the

In the opinion of authoritative lex-
icographers, the word is now a proper
American noun since its use last week
by President Roosevelt in his radio
address.
Frank H. Vizetelly, one of the best
known lexicographers in the country,
had this to say:
"It is to be expected that the word
will consequently find its way into
good English. When the President of
the United States employs what has
been a slang phrase he clothes it with
dignity."
President Roosevelt was speaking,
in his use of the word, of those who
have been displaying the NRA eagle
without living up to the NRA code.
California Jury Acquits
Nurse In Grace Killing
SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Nov. 24. -
(P> - Acquitted of a murder charge,
Frieda Wilhelmina Weltz was free
here today to seek again the health
and happiness she claims were shat-
tered by the man she was accused
of slaying, Francis J. M. Grace, re-
tired capitalist.
The 43-year-old nurse, a veteran
of the World War, was acquitted
Thursday night by a jury, whose1
foreman and only woman member,
Mrs. Ruby Enemark, embraced her
after the verdict was read.
"I never had any doubt as to what
our verdict would be," Mrs. Enemark
said, "but I was surprised it took so
long."
The jury was out more than 10.
hours and had been ordered to bed
for the night when agreement on
a verdict was suddenly announced.
A conservative is one whose inter-
ests and likes and dislikes are per-
manent. He is unwilling to exper-
iment with new institutions and is1
more than willing to let good enough
alone-Dr. Floyd Ruch, University of
Illinois.

College Paper
Probes Illegal
Slot Machines
GRANVILLE, 0., Nov. 24. - (IP)
- This town has no crusading news-
paper to keep watch on civic affairs.
But it has the Denisonian, under-
graduate newspaper of Denison Col-
lege. So the town is finding out some-
thing about itself.
Probably never before had Gran-
ville citizens rubbed their eyes with
such amazement as they did last
week when the Denisonian came out
with black headlinesdescribing the
presence in town of slot machines
and told of the losses students and
others were incurring in them.
"Denison students are pouring $200
a week into the machines," an edi-
torial written by Wallace Husted, edi-
tor, said. "These machines are being
operated in direct defiance of Section
13430-9 of the Ohio Code."
Investigators for the Denisonian'
reported in the paper that the best,
paying of the machines was found
to return a little more than 50 cents
on the dollar, that a high average
for all the machines was 30 cents on
the dollar. Some of the machines
were regulated to pay back as little
as 5 cents on the dollar, they said.
Husted said the Denisonian would
keep up its crusade against the slot
machines "until something is done
about them."
Faculty, O.R.C. Group
Will Hold Rifle Matches
A meeting was held last night in
order to formulate plans for a joint
faculty and Officers' Reserve Corps

tant professor of military science and
tactics, said yesterday.
Seven attended, and are to hold a
future meeting from 4 to 6 p. m. on
Dec. 7, for the purpose of actual
practice In handling and shooting
rifles and pistols, and to determine
the number of rounds to be fired in
actual competition.

its material in 1926.

Fox Is Recalled To
Add To Testimony
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. 07da)-
William Fox was recalled by Senate,
investigators today for the second in-
stallment of his story in which he
charges bankers conspired to force
him out of the movie business and
gain control of the vast theatre struc-
ture he created.
Senatorial investigators withheld
comment on his charges, but issued a
virtual invitation for any one who
wants to challenge his facts to ap-
pear.
The retired movie magnate reached
today that part of his story where
General Theatres Equipment, Inc.,
backed by the Chase National bank
millions, acquired control of his prop-
erties for $15,000,000 and other val-
uable considerations.

Scientists May

Sex At Will

BERKELEY, Calif., Nov. 24. - (IP)
-The time may come when scientists
will be able to turn men into women
at will, according to Dr. Herbert M.
Evans, professor of anatomy at the
University of California.
"Our experiments with chickens,"
he said, "show that hens have
stopped laying eggs, grown combs and
become in most respects roosters."
Thirteen years ago Prof. Evans sep-
arated the sex and growth harmones
of the pituitary glands after long re-
search.
On the Illinois Weslyan campus
this year there are four cooperative
houses in which students live by a
budget, dividing the expenses among
themselves.

D e a n Discusses Various
Aspects Of Profession
On Michigan Program
Engineering as a profession was
discussed by Dean Herbert C. Sadler
of the engineering college, over the
University Radio broadcast on Sta-
tion WJR yesterday. Dean Sadler
presented the profession in its many
aspects and divisions, attempting to
touch on each type of engineering.
Pointing to the promiscuous use
of the term, "engineer," Dean Sadler
went ahead to show the movement on
foot to license the profession as has
been done in other fields. He also
discussed the various subjects neces-
sary to the engineer, given in the
courses of study in universities.
"The question often arises in the
mind of a young rnan or his parents
as to his taking an engineering
course, so certain personal charac-
teristics which may help in making
such a decision must include a liking
and ability in the studies of mathe-
matics, physics, chemistry, and the
sciences generally. Many boys like to
tinker with machinery or make
things. . While this trait is good, it
by no means follows that such a boy
will make a good engineer," Dean
Sadler stated.
Treating the engineering profes-
sion in its individual aspects, Prof.
John E. Emswiler will open a series.
of talks at 2 p. m. next Friday speak-
ing on the mechanical engineer.

It is not all-around over-produc-
tion that is responsible for the eco-
nomic unrest today, but rather the
over-supplies and under-supplies of
labor and capital among domestic in-
dustries, which is a vital condition
necessary to economic recovery, Prof.
Z. C. Dickinson of the economics de-'
partment stated in his radio address,
"The Consumer 'and the NRA," on
the University hour over station WJR
last night.
Professor Dickinson treated the
subject under three headings: 1.
What the consumer is asked to do
by his Government; 2. Why are these
things asked of him; and 3. The chiefk
difficulties the recovery policies are
now encountering, and how the dif-
ficulties might be lessened.
"The consumer is asked to patron-
ize NRA members; he is asked to
'Buy Now;' and he is asked to im-
mediately begin paying upon the very
large costs of the recovery program,"
Professor Dickinson pointed out in
answer to the first question.
The second question is answered in
the theory that higher wages and
shorter hours decreed by the NRAE
will presumably give rise to higher
costs that will be passed on to the
consumer. The outstanding imme-
diate objective is to raise prices.
Professor Dickinson showed the in-
adequacy of price-raising by restric-
tions on output, and of some popular
methods of increasing consumer-pur-
chasing-power, to promote sound re-
covery, in reply to the third query.

Handman Speaks
Max Handman of the eco-

nomics department gave a short dis-
cussion of the relation of the NRA
and our economic life. He dealt with
the disturbed purchasing power due
to changes in production and to the
relation between science and busi-
ness. Scarcity amid plenty was
pointed out as being true, despite
talk of over-production.
The conference of the Labor In-
stitute will come to a close with a'
meeting at 9 a. m. today in the Un-
ion. The Washington meeting of
the American Federation of Labor
will be the topic of discussion, with
William Collins of Detroit, an or-
ganizer of the A. F. L., and Prof.
William Haber of Michigan State

president of the Michigan Federation
of Labor, will preside.
