Wild Lands Of
State Provide
Sports Haven
M i c h i g a n's Wildernesses!
Discussed By ProfessorI
Allen In Radio Talk }
Michigan has wild lands that pro-
vide a veritable haven for the sports-!
man, was concluded by Prof. Shirley
W. Allen of the School of Forestry
and Conservation in his radio talk
over WJR at 2 p.m. from Morris Hall
Professor Allen, who was inter-I
viewed by Prof. Waldo Abbot, direc-
tor of the University radio studio, in
this talk of the Michigan, My Mich-I
igan Series, stressed the fact that
were one to travel ten miles overland
in Michigan without crossing or stay-
ing closely parallel to a road, he would;
have penetrated wild land.

Taking his radio audience on an
imaginary sight-seeing tour of the
wild lands of Michigan, Professor Al-
len discussed the types of people who
frequent these wildernesses. Aside
from the Sunday pleasure-seekers
and picnickers, he said, "There are
hunters, trappers, amateur explorers,
fishermen, tree planters, naturalists
for pleasure, campers for camping's
sake, and just plain lovers of the
wilderness who glory in unusual
methods of travel and living in wild
Discussing the Michigan hunter,
Professor Allen said that he glories
in his woodmanship, his marksman-
ship, his knowledge of a particularly
good hunting ground, and his actual
capture of an expensive piece of food,
a trophy, and something to boast
Fisherman Philosophical
"The fisherman's thrill," he said,
"is made up of similar elements, but
he is apt to be more philosophical
and more incurable. The picnicker
seeks the unusual in appetite and
surroundings and not infrequently
expects and finds some adventure
other than a quarrel with ants or
mosquitos. The trapper is commonly
out for a livelihood, but who could
follow a trap line without keen satis-
faction in learning the ways of cun-
ning of wild animals. Just being in
the open, matching one's wits and'
skill against those of the fur bearers
and capturing a few of them is an
ancient art in Michigan and still is
full of thrills."
Camper Also Benefits
Another person who partakes of the
opportunities of the Michigan wilds,
according to Professor Allen, is the
camper., who finds outlet for acquired
proficiency in selecting a site, making
himself comfortable without the usual
comforts, stirring up strange and
wonderful dishes, and boasting about
all the features of the trip whether'
pleasant or unpleasant.
He urged that these wild lands
which are the pride of Michigan
spould remain wild, for "at the same
time that we are earnest to explore
and learn all things, we require that
all things be mysterious and unex-
plprable," and stressed that we never
have enough of the tonic, nature.
Plan To Alter
Wards Refused
By Committee
A committee of seven Ann Arbor
aldermen recommended to the Coun-
cil Monday that it disapprove the
plan to alter ward boundaries in order
to equalize precincts.
Prof. William A. Paton of the
School of Business Administration
voted against the recommendation
to disapprove the proposal, and Prof.
Walter C. Sadler of the engineering
college declined to vote. Those vot-
ing against the plan and in favor
of the recommendation to disapprove
it were Aldermen Frank Wilkinson,
Donald Mayer, Carl Esslinger, Max
Krutsch, and Phares Winney.
Alderman Winney, who represents
the fifth ward, which it is proposed
to consolidate with the fourth, qual-
ified his vote. "If my ward can main-
tain its identity, I will vote for the
plan," he said.
The same committee recommended
to the council that it instruct the ordi-
nance committee to draw up changes
of names of East University, North
University, and South University Ave-

leaders, after swapping opinions in
an amicable White House conference
appeared determined today to stan
by their conflicting views on such
things as the 30-hour week, relief
wages and auto labor elections.
They exchanged pleasant greet-
ings late Monday at a meeting at
which the union leaders voiced their
desires and the President said:
"My impression is that our diffi-
culties are found largely in the here-
tofore totally unorganized field, both
as it affects employers and employes
In such cases we must have patience."
"The Federal government," he saic
at another point, "has indicated
through the National Industrial Re-
covery act its desire that Tabor and
management organize for the purpose
of collective bargaining and the fur-
therance of industrial peace and pros-
perity, but the Federal government
cannot, of course, undertake to com-

According to officials of the library,
these books were purchased by'the
