One of the major reconstruction projects ne(essi ated by the Chicago stockyards fire is the task of
rebuilding elevated railroad lines whose steel beams were twisted and sagged from the terrific heat as shown,
in this picture. Damage to the elevated lines was estimated at $500,000.

Edmonson Lists'
For Teaching
Health, Personality, And1
Interest In Scholarship
Needed By Educators
Health, personality, and real in-
terest in'scholarship are necessary re-
quirements for anyone intending to
teach, Dean J. B. Edmonson of the
School of Education pointed out yes-
terday in Room 1025 Angell Hall in
the last of the series of talks on vo-
cational guidance.
Dean Edmonson explained the nec-
essity for these requisites. High rank
in health, he said, is necessary to
bear up under the strain of teach-
ing; personality is needed to permit
mixing with the students, co-opera-
tion, and ability to sympathize with
the problems of others; and interest
in scholarship must be had if the
instructor is to enjoy his profession.
Dean Edmonson raised the ques-
tion of the possibility to secure em-1
ployment. He answered this by say-I
ing that at present there is some
overcrowding in teaching, as in all
other professions, but, he added, "It
is difficult to find well-qualified can-
didates for certain types of subjects.
Moreover, there is a shortage in Mich-
igan in communities demanding high
standards Hfor* their elemetary
schools." He also said that the in-
crease in school enrollments shows
that after the depression there will
be a greater demand for teachers.
Dean Edmonson added that salaries
for teachers are, in general, low, and
that students must not expect to
make a fortune. . He is confident,
however, that the present depressed
salaries will rise when there is an im-
provement in industry.
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the his-
tory department supplemented Dean
Edmonson's talk, and told the re-
quirements necessary to be in line for
a combined bachelor of arts degree
and a teachers certificate.

"Any move in Congress or by the
Administration which would have the
effect of transferring the Forest Ser-
vice from the Department of Agri-
culture to the Department of Interior,
would be decidedly detrimental," said
Dean Samuel T. Dana of the Schoo
of Forestry and Conservation in an
interview on the Taylor Graying bill,
which at present is before the Sen-
"Because of the fact that the de-
velopment and utilization of the na-
tional forpsts are primarily problems
in crop production, the shifting of the
Forest Service would be unfortunate.
Allied interests between the Forest
Service and other parts of the De-
partment of Agriculture are evident
in such bureaus as Enemology, plant
industry, animal industry, biological
survey, and the weather bureau; and
forest management and protection is
basically a problem calling for the
co-ordinated effort of the' various
bureaus of the Department of Agri-
culture," Dean Dana said.
"Furthermore, the Forest Service
has an active research organization,
which, in all probability, would not
be transferred to the Department of
Interior. The result would be to di-
vorce administrative activities from
the investigations on which their ef-
fectiveness so largely depends," he
"There is also sound basis in tra-
dition and experience for believing
that the National Forests should re-
main under the jurisdiction of the
Department of Agriculture, where
their management has been made
much more effective than during the
period' up to 1905 when they were ad-

Dana Reports
On Education
In Fo res try
D2ean Samuel T. Dana of the
School of Forestry and Conservation,
returned recently from Washington
where he' delivered the report of the
sub-committee on Education in For-
est Economy before the committee
on Social and Economic Research in
agriculture in a session of the Social
Science Research Council.
The report recommended that a
degree of doctor of philosophy be
given to students wishing to major in
forest economics. It also advised
that schools giving, these degrees
should have strong departments of
forestry and economics and a strong
graduate school. The report was ap-
proved by the main committee and
will be published for distribution both
in the United States and abroad.
Due to the success of this com-
mittee, another similar group was ap-
pointed to study education -in land
economy. Dr. J. D. Black of Har-
vard was appointed as chairman.
Dean Dana and Jacob Crain of Chi-
cago, a Michigan graduate, were also
named to the committee.

expressed by certain western Sena-
tors, adds substance to the purpose
sought by Representative Rich of
Pennsylvania, who on April 10, when
the bill was before the House, moved
to amend it by inserting the follow-
ing: "And that the Forest Service,
now in the Department of Agricul-
ture, be transferred to the jurisdic-
tion of the Department of the In-
terior." Meanwhile, the President
continues to have the power to re-
organize the government departnients.

Prof. C. C. Cunningham of the
school of speech at Northwestern Uni-
versity automatically became secre-
tary of the Big Ten Debating Con-
ference following the completion of
the spring debates.
The office rotates each year to a
member of the faculty of the univer-
sities participating in the Big Ten
debates. James H. McBurney of the
speech department had the office a
few years ago.

Professor Ostberg re urned to the
United States for the first time in 41
years to receive the No. 1 gold medal:
of the American Institute of Archi-
tects at the White House last week,
the presentation being made person-
ally by President Roosevelt. He had
also been the recipient of the medal
of honor of the Royal Institute of
British Architects, and of the How-
land Prize of Yale Univer;sity for dis-
tinctive achievement in architecture.
Professor Ostberg came into par-
ticular prominence as the architect
of the $2,500,000 "Starshus", or City
Hall of Stockholm, completed in 1922.
This building is regarded as Sweden's
most important contemporary archi-
tectural work, and its decoration is
representative of Sweden's, leading
artists and craftsmen..
