Adult Institute
Called Success,
By Henderson

Bodies Of Lightship Crash Victims Brought Ashore

Enrollment Figures
25 Percent Rise
Last Year


Termed by Dr. W. D. Henderson, di-
rector of the Extension Division as.
one of the most successful institutes
ever held, the Institute of Adult Edu-
cation sponsored jointly by the Exten-
sion Division and the State Federa-
tion of Women's Clubs, concluded its
five day session yesterday.
"The success of the institute," Dr.
Henderson said, lies in the fact that
these meetings and lectures are but
the foundation of programs of learn-
ing in women's clubs throughout the
coming year. In addition, the mem-
bers of the faculty have taken par-
ticular care in preparing their lec-
tures to assure the best possible pro-
200 Members Enrolled,
Enrollment figures released by Dr.
C. A. Fisher of the Extension Division
show an attendance of more than 200
members, representing 59 cities and
towns throughout the state. This' fig-
ure is a gain of 25tper cent over last
year's registration total.
'Addressing the morning session yes-
terday, Dr. Paul F. Voelker, State
Superintendent of Public Instruction,
characterized his "New Deal inEdu-
cation" with a plea for an educational
system that will give every student
a chance, and not just recognize the
"intellectual" side of life.
"The cut and dried curriculum of
our schools today does not recognize
the abilities of the student, but r6ther.
says get our system or get out," he said
as he urged' that Michigan refrain
from doing away with the so-called
"frills of education," but rather add
to them because they were a step to-
ward the ideal of a "try-out" system
which would allow the student to find.
out what he liked, and for whathe
could be best fitted.
Federal Control Undesirable
The speaker was inclined to believe'
that a form of Federal control or
even ,support of education, with the
exception of emergency periods, was
not desirable. He favored the con-,
tinuance of a maximum of local con-
trol with a maximum of state sup-1
port, which he believed should be a1
minimum of $100 per month for each

two to three times as high as those in
the American Legion hospital and the

pitals, unless the better facilities of
the University hospital are thought
particularly necessary.

sity. hospital during the last quarter
of 1933 cost the county $645.83, while
the same eight cases would have only
cost $237.51 at the Leland After-Cure
Hospital, Mr. Cushing said. Although
he admitted that better treatment
was to be obtained at the University
hospital, he said that there "simply is
not money to pay the cost."

the liner Olympic, which rammed the lightship off the coast of Massachusetts. Seven men died as the light-

Jewish Boycott
On Nazi Goods
is Protested
NEW YORK, May 18.-(/P) -The
friends of the new Germany drove
a counter-attack today against the
Jewish boycott on German goods in
the United States.
In a resolution, adopted at a rally
of 20,000 Nazi sympathizers Thurs-
day night in Madison Square Garden,
they called on President Roosevelt
to order a department of justice in-
vestigation of the boycott.
Nearly 1,000 policemen, reinforced
by several hundred uniformed mem-
bers of the "Ordnungs Dienst," pa-
trolled the aisles of the hall and the
streets outside, maintaining order

and 40 all year, a number that
amounts to from 20 to 30 per cent of
the entire enrollment, and have never
asked the students to work more than
two and a quarter hours at the most
for their meals.
Members Co-operate
During the crisis this year the
working members of the group vol-
untarily offered to work fewer hours
and make part-payments of cash in-
stead to help the organization. Their
excellent co-operation was of great
help in maintaining operation.
The Michigan Co-operative, claim
the directors, has now established it-
self as a permanent institution and
will continue its service to Michigan
students even when good times return
to the campus. They point out that
rising commodity prices and conse-
quent rises in board prices will en-
able them to keep on helping the stu-
dent body.

Would-Be Sampson
Attempts Capture
Of Runaway Lion
PARIS, May 18.- (')-A soldier
who tried to play Samson with a run-
away circus lion was badly scratched
and mauled for his heroism today.
The lion, bored with life in a men-
agerie on the outskirts of Paris, de-
cided to see the sights in the French
capital. He pulled up the planks in
the bottom of his cage and headed for
the bright lights.
The soldier, attached to the air
service, tried to capture the sight-seer
single handed, but instead went to a
hospital. The soldier cornered the lion
in an angle of an old fortification.,
The lion took a swipe at him. He
kicked the lion. Thereupon, the king
of beasts - tiring of the annoyance
- bit the soldier in the shoulder and
clawed him about the head.
It was just about this time that the
lion's trainer arrived. He got the fu-
gitive into a portable cage while the
whole neighborhood scurried for shel-

He admits, at the same time, that .it
is perhaps surprising that he hasn't
wanted to, since stage work is pretty
demanding and has a tendericy to

Local productions, such as those

sarily worth-while. "As difficult as it
may be to accomplish, it seems neces-
