Relief As Mercury
Drops 5 Degrees
Though the temperature was only
94.5 degrees yesterday, 5.3 degrees un-
der yesterday's high, the increased
humidity allowed none of Ann Ar-
bor's sweltering thousands to gain
No cases of heat prostration were
reported, but even the most sedate
faculty members shed their coats
and went about perspiring in their
shirt sleeves. Soda fountains did a
rushing business, it being estimated
that more ice cream and cold drinks
were sold yesterday than during all
the rest of the spring.
Small children were seen running
through the spray of lawn sprinklers,
and bathing suits were the chief mode
of clothing for students lolling on
porches, under trees, or anywhere a
cool spot was to be found. The pools
in the Union and in the Intramural
Building were crowded all day long.
Weather reports from Washington
continue to predict relief, with pos-
sible rain, at an early date, but Ann
Arbor weather is notoriously unpre-
dictable. In the meantime, local gar-
dens are suffering the fate of all Mid-
Western crops. No forest fires have
been reported in this area, but the
University forestry property is being
I closely guarded.

Health Work Changed
Health work which was formerly
carried on in the urban high schools
of the state has been changed to the
rural district schools. Experiments
along this line have been carried out
thus far only in Washtenaw County,
but their success has justified a fur-
ther expansion along these lines, ac-
cording to the department, and fu-
ture work will be carried on in rural
All types of forensics were placed
under the scope of the Michigan High
School Debating League, which is op-
erated from the University under the
direction of James H. McBurney. For-
merly this division has only been+
concerned with debating. Under the
new system the number of state high1
schools participating in some form of
forensic work or another increased
from 176 of last year to 261.
Old institutes, such as those for
Adult Education and Parent-Teach-
ers, were continued, along with the
addition of a Law Enforcement In-
stitute which held four meetings, and
the renewal of the Labor Institute,
which had been temporarily discon-
tinued last year.
The library extension service has
materially increased the scope of its
activity through its new policy of fur-
nishing materials, chiefly instructive
booklets and pamphlets, to the CCC
camps of Michigan for use in their
new educational programs.
Michigan Men in Camp
Many of the new educational di-
rectors of these camps are graduates
of the University, and knowing of the
advantages of this service, have re-
quested help. The chief fields of in-
terest in these camps are forestry,
technical subjects, and recreation.
Approximately 500 extension lec-
tures were delivered by the director
of the Extension service and the as-
sistant director, together with lec-
tures by nearly 100 additional fac-
ulty members. There was an esti-
mated attendance of 150,000 at these
There were about 2,900 students
enrolled throughthestate in the var-
ious extension courses offered. Most
of these courses are offered in the
city of Detroit, but other cities rep-
resented include Flint, Grand Rap-
ids,.Saginaw, Battle Creek,and Jack-
son. Fees charged for these courses
made them self-sustaining.

WASHINGTON, June 3--(M)-High
American diplomatic and naval chiefs
have placed an unofficial'"o.k." on
proposals to hold the 1935 general
naval conference in London.
Robert Worth Bingham, American
ambassador to London, who will carry
on the preliminary bilateral discus-
sions for the United States, had in-
struction today to interpose no ob-
jections if the British government ex-
tends an invitation.
The time and place for the confer-
ence will be decided during the pre-
liminary talks, beginning next week
between envoys of the five interested
sea powers.
Authorities here-as in London and
Tokio-are known to be deep in
mathematical calculations concern-
ing British and Japanese tonnage in
the different categories of vessels.
Although there was distinct de-
clination to comment it was known
that naval chiefs scanned reports of
the launching Friday of the new Ja-
panese cruiser Mikuma. The event
centered interest in Japan's expected
request for a revision of present ra-
tios to make it possible for that na-
tion to construct a number of heavily
armed, fast cruisers.
Latest official naval figures show
that Japan now has 21 "B" type
cruisers carrying guns of six inches
or less, totalling more than 100,000
tons, on the water. Two more, the
Mogami and the Susuya, are under
construction, and three more have
been appropriated for. Japan thus
will have 26 "B" cruisers of 144,375
The United States has only 10 "B"
class cruisers of 70,500 tons, 4 of
10,000 tons each under construction,
and 3 of 10,000 tons each appropri-
ated for, giving a total of 17 ships of
140,500 tons.
Great Britain has 32 "B" class
cruisers of 159,070 tons, seven of
43,600 tons building, and six appro-
priated for, which will give the Brit-
ish navy 45 light cruisers of 252,870

LONDON, Eng., June 2-(P)-Lon-
doners are in their cups again, which
heralds the return of prosperity, ac-
cording to the Financial News of this
city. But although the cups con-
tain only tea, the Financial News
judges the wealth of the Englander
thereby, and says:
"Financiers of the city are actually
beginning to renew their wardrobes,
and are eating in high-priced restau-
"The traditional hospitality of the
city is coming back; anyone who pays
a call around 4.o'clock stands a good
chance of getting a cup of tea, and
maybe even biscuits. It it goes on
like this, life may once more be worth

Blood Circulation
Feature Of Exhibit
Exhibit Shows Knowledge
Of Science With Regardt
To Human Blood
Visitors at the Hall of Science, in
the Century of Progress Exposition,
will have the opportunity this year<
of viewing a graphic exhibit of whatE
science knows of the manufacture,
composition, circulation and use of
human blood, Dr. Raphael Isaacs, as-1
sistant director of Simpson Memorial
Institute, who has just returned from
opening the exhibition yesterday,<
The Simpson exhibit shows the
composition of blood and what each
part of the blood has to do in the!
functioning of the body, Dr. Issacs
stated, and some details of anemia
are included in the exhibition.
"Beginning with a demonstration
of the composition of blood, there is
a graphic representation of the
amount of different substances in the
blood in terms of household measure-
Growth Of Blood Seen
"Next, he said, "there is a case
containing the story of the growth of
blood in the marrow, development
of a red blood cell, the storing of
hemoglobin, and ripening. In the
following case is a comparison of the
relative sizes of the blood corpuscles
of the amphium."
A demonstration of the instru-
ments used in counting red blood
cells and measuring hemoglobin is'
next, together with substances which
make animal blood red, and also
what makes it different in the vari-
ous animals, so that human blood
stains can be distinguished from
those of animals.
"A very interesting feature of the
exhibit," Dr. Isaacs stated, "is the
moving demonstration showing how
oxygen is carried from the lungs to
the tissues, loses its oxygen, and re-
turns to the lungs for a fresh sup-
Four Classes Shown
A case containing a demonstration
of blood clotting comes next, and in-
cludes the two diseases which occur
when the blood fails to clot properly.
In the next case, the four different
classes of human blood are shown,
and classification necessary before a
blood transfusion can be made.
Use of the white blood cells in con-
suming bacteria, and the production
of the white cells is shown in the
next exhibit. In the next case, the
treatment of pernicious anemia is
shown, and the stages in the manu-
facture of liver extract and dried
stomach, two medicines used in this
treatment. The final chart shows
graphically the progress that has
been made in eradicating pernicious
Blood Transfusion Methods
Two scenes are mounted in the
corner cupboards showing the two
standard methods of giving blood
transfusions; one directly from a
healthy person into a patient, and
the other indirectly by taking blood
in a vessel and giving it to the pa-
tient later.
The Building and Grounds Depart-
ment and the University Museums
co-operated with the Institute in the

preparation of the exhibit. Plans
were drawn up by members of the
Institute and the technical work was
done by the Museums and the Build-
ing and Grounds department under
the direction of Miss Crystal Thomp-

A Miracle: Three
Students .Demand
Job Without Pay
A professor's dream of the energetic
student has been realized in the
chemistry department. Not only one
energetic student but three.
Three FERA workers, who have
been helping in the chemistry de-
partment under Prof. Hobart H. Wil-
lard, actually have become so inter-
ested in their work that they have
asked permission to continue without
pay after the FERA ends its program
in the University June 15. Heads of
that department, startled beyond
words for a moment, finally found
their voices to say, in a voice from
which pleasure was carefully re-
strained, "Well, we guess it's all
The students jumped for joy. They
could work without pay. And so, after
June 15, when all other FERA work-
ers in the University will have packed
up and gone home, the three energet-
ic individuals in the chemistry de-'
partment will have the time of their:
lives-working without a salary.
These workers, along with nearly
all FERA students in the chemistry
department, have been dealing prin-
cipally with the formation of or-
ganic compounds and preparing un-
knowns for laboratory work. Praising
all FERA workers who were employed
under him, Professor Hobart said
that the interest of these three was
"typical of the efficient attitude of all
who so greatly helped us."

Prof Reverses
Marital Advice
To Graduates
BOSTON, June 2-'P)-Prof. Rob-
ert E. Rogers, who created a bit of a
stir several years ago by advising
young men to "marry the boss's
daughter and be a snob," has new
ideas about marriage.
The ideal wife, he told the senior
class of Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, is a college girl with a
government job. She should be a
"serious-minded, studious girl, four
or five years older than himself."
A girl, moreover, who is "a special-
ist in agricultui'e, economics, sociol-
ogy or labor statistics and who has
a government job"-that's the ideal
wife for the college man about to
go out into the world to seek a living.
"Wait until' she gets a job in
Washington," says Prof. Rogers,
"which is at present being run by
lady specialists who are graduates
of well-known girl colleges."
Then all that is necessary is to
have the wife get her college-gradu-
ate husband a job with the govern-
ment "where he will have peace and
quiet for the rest of his life, since
the government rarely discharges an

Many Students

Awards Are Open To 2bi
Michigan Residents For
Advanced Work
Applications are pouring in to the
Graduate School for the Michigan
Scholarships in the Graduate School
for next year, it was announced yes-
terday by Dean G. Carl Huber.
These scholarships are available
only to twenty Michigan residents
who enter the Graduate School at the
beginning of the academic year fol-
lowing their graduation from the
University. They provide. only for
payment of tuition, athletic and
other fees excepted. The scholar-
ships, originally granted by the
Board of Regents last year, have been
renewed for 1934-35.
Seniors applying for the scholar-
ships must. be recommended by the.
division of specialization in which the
major work has been done.
The principal basis of choice for
recipients of the scholarships is
scholastic standing, Dean Huber said.
"However," he continued, "if we have
to choose between two persons with
equally good marks, the scholarship
will be granted to the one with the
greater financial need."
The announcement of those who
will receive the University Scholar-
ships in the Graduate School will be
made shortly after commencement,
Dean Huber stated. In the mean-
time, there are still application
blanks available in the office of the
Graduate School.
Dean Huber also mentioned the
fact that the scholarships are open
to all seniors who are going to be
graduated this year, including those
in the engineering college.
The original grant, as made by the
Board of Regents, provided for no
specific sum, but merely included
twenty scholarships. The quota was
quickly filled last year, reports show.

A tentative schedule of 171 educa-
tional radio programs to be broadcast
from the University Campus over the
facilities of Station WJR, Detroit,
during the next year has been re-
leased by Professor Waldo Abbot, di-
rector of the University Broadcasting
Service. There will be nine programs
weekly for a period of 19 weeks.
The weekly schedule for these pro-
grams is as follows:

instruments will be broadcast every
Monday morning at 9:15. For four
years Dr. Joseph E. Maddy, professor
of public school music in the School
of Music, has conducted radio music
instruction classes. Instruction books
are obtained" by sending 15c to the
Extension department of the Univer-
sity. Many students throughout the
state have been taking advantage of
these offerings in the past.
Dr. Maddy's classes will also be
broadcast Monday afternoons, at two
o'clock, for the playing of wind in-
struments, and each Tuesday morning
at 9:15 for elementary singing.

industries, educational facilities, and
recreational opportunities, of their
State will be broadcast each Tuesday
afternoon at two o'clock,
Each Wednesday afternoon at two
there will be a Vocational Guidance
broadcast. The purpose of the talks
given on these programs is to provide
high school boys and girls of the state
with information that will be helpful
in choosing their vocations. Talks are
offered during the year on each of
the principal vocations and profes-
sions by people competent to speak
on them.
. Give Language Series
The Language series, consisting of
instructive talks on Greek, Latin,
French, Spanish, and German will be
broadcast each Thursday afternoon at

one ineach group every three weeks.
The speech series will constitute one
unit. The programs of this series are
arranged for high school speech
classes and debate teams. The second
unit will be the Student Health series,
a series of health talks arranged for
school children. The third unit of the
Friday series will be a series of six
radio talks on "Mental Hygiene of
Adolescence," by Dr. Howard Y. Mc-
Clusky, assistant professor of Educa-
tion Psychology at the University.

There is no doubt concerning the
future of the American theatre in the1
mind of Miss Florence Reed, cele-
brated actress and interesting per-
sonality, who will play Lady Macbeth
in the Dramatic Season's offering next
week. "The theatre will always hold
its own, a place the movies cannever
usurp. Just think, wouldn't you rather
talk to a person than sit looking at
her picture, however good the like-
ness may be? Canned things! Give
me fresh vegetables every time!"
Miss Reed, a striking brunette with
an English air, who smokes from a,
long exotic cigarette-holder, evinced
small regard for dramatic schools, de-
claring, "There is only one place to
learn the , theatre, and that is the

New York.
The daughter of a noted comedian,
Miss Reed received a convent educa-

artists, studied not to be an artjst
but to be a musician. An injured fin-
gem' forced her to surrender a career
as a pianist, but she has retained an
intense devotion and interest in music
Kreisler, Heifetz, Zimbalist, and many
others are counted among the friends
who visit her New York home.
For her role as Lady Macbeth, Miss
Reed exhibited a deep enthusiasm,
adding however that she had "parsed
and cursed each line of the play ir
school like everybody else." She prom-
ises a quite new interpretation of th
famous Shakespearean heroine in the
current production. Incidentally, Miss
