Attendance At
S.C.A. Camp In
1934 Is High
Fresh Air Camp Served
340 Boys To Break All
Previous Records
The attendance at the University
Fresh Air Camp in 1934 broke all
previous records when it served the
needs of more than 340 different
campers, the annual report submitted
by George G. Alder, director of the
camp, shows.
The boys for the camp each year are
selectedthrough the cooperation of
more than fifteen different social wel-
fare agencies located In Ann Arbor,
Detroit, Hamtramck, and Wyandotte.
No restrictions are placed on the
boys because of race, nationality, or
creed, and an effort is made to take
as many forme" campers as is possible
each year.
The entire program of the Fresh
Air Camp is "conceived in order to
promote wholesome, vigorous, and in-
telligent living among underprivileged
boys who are unable to have the bene-
fit of a full paid camp." One of the
secondary aims of the camp is to de-
velop leadership in University men.
Students Run Camp
The camp personnel with the ex-
ception of the caretaker, bakers, and
handicraft director are all university
students and graduates, most of whom
are from the University. The positions.
are filled through the cooperation of
the Student Christian Association.
In the last few years the program of
the Fresh Air camp has been carefully
coordinated with a special health pro-
gram. On the day of arrival in camp
each boy is given a physical examina-
tion and a careful record of the health
of eery camper is kept.
Under the supervision of Prof. F. N.
Menefee of the department of engi-
neering mechanics the long planned
"main building" of the camp was
started. It is hoped by officials at
the camp that this new structure will
be completed for use by the 1935
* New Building Under Way
The new building when finished will
provide adequate kitchen and dining
room facilities and a limited number
of sleeping quarters. The camp build-
ing will also be available for the use
of certain organized campus groups
for retreats and other week-end meet-
ings during the winter months of the
University year.
The funds necessary for the support
of the camp are raised principally
through popular subscription and by
the Student Christian Association,
which sponsors forums, lectures, and
the annual All-Campus Jamboree.
Se For Damages
In Kerns Disaster
LANSING, March 15.- (A) - A rep-
ercussion of the tragic Hotel Kerns
fire here Dec. 11 gave the state de-
partment of labor and industry a new
legal knot to untangle today.
Mrs. Ida F. Wiesse, of Saginaw, en-
tered a claim before the-department
in which she seeks compensation for
the alleged death of her husband,
James, in the blaze. She demanded
$5,400 frot the battery company for
which he traveled as a salesman. His
body never was identified among the
Mrs. Nellie Thied, widow of Fred
C. Thied, salesman for a Chicago
pharmaceutical company, asked the
same amount from his employers for
the death of her husband in the blaze.

Wisconsin Monday; End
Season April 5
The University Varsity debating
team will begin an intensive two-week
schedule of duel and Conference de-
bates next Monday with a meet with
Beloit College of Wisconsin in Ann
The debate season will close April
5 when a team of from four to eight
Michigan men will participate in the
Western Conference round-robin de-
bates on the Northwestern University
Abe Zwerdling, '35, and Jack Moe-
kle, '35, will represent the Michigan
negative in the contest with Beloit
on the question: "Resolved, That All
Collective Bargaining Should Be Con-
ducted By Non-company Unions
Safeguarded By Law." Both debaters
have shown their ability in argumen-
tation and rebuttal in the past,
Zwerdling having a record of three
years of experience on the Varsity,
and Moekle one year.
Syracuse University and Xavier
College will send their forensic teams
here March 19, the former preparing
to meet the local debaters in the eve-
ning and the latter early in the after-
noon. The question over which the
verbal battle will be contested will be
the same as the one used with Beloit,
William Centner, '38, and Ed Litch-
field, '36, will debate the subject, tak-
ing the negative side, in the Syracuse
-contest. In the afternoon debates
only Litchfield has been chosen by
Dr. James McBurney, coach, thus
far. He declared yesterday that the
other Michigan contestant will be
selected the beginning of next week
from a group on the squad including
Ralph Danhoff, '36, Carl Nelson, '37,
Collins Brooks, '37, Arthur Marlowe,
'36, and Centner.
Complete Plans
For Meeting
Of Sociologfists
Professor Carr Describes
All-County Conference
Set For May 3
Plans were announced yesterday by
Prof. Lowell J. Carr of the sociology
department for a county conference
on juvenile delinquency at which all
local social agencies will be represent-
The tentative date for the confer-
ence has been set for May 3, and it
will be held in Ann Arbor, according
to Professor Carr, who is chairman of
the local treatment planning commis-
sion. No definite program has been
scheduled as yet, but it is"expected
that discussion sections will beled
by leaders of the various agencies.
The conference is not, it was
.tressed, due directly to the interest
in the problem which has been created
by the recent murder of Richard
Streicher of Ypsilanti, but is an out-
growth of a gradually approaching
crisis. Decision to hold the conference,
Professor Carr stated, was reached
at a meeting of the planning commis-
sion several weeks ago. The sugges-
tion was made by Professor Carr, and
was enthusiastically adopted by other
commission members.

Rules NRA Invalid

Federal Judge Guy L. Fake at New-
ark, N.J., ruled that the national re-
covery act, as applied to interstate
business, is "unconstitutional because
it attempts an unlawful delegation
of legislative authority."

ring Chester lorris and featuring Rob-
ert Taylor, Virginia Bruce, and Billie

Lightly," a rubbishy comedy starring
Roscoe Ates, who can stutter; "Movie
Memories," a saccharine but interest-
ing series of glimpses of many old stars;
and Phil Spitalny and his orchestra
(?) dressed up as a flock of girls, quite
pansyish on the whole.
Egg-headed, patent-leathery Ches-
ter Morris is senior interne at Dr. Wa-
verly's polished hospital. Virginia
Bruce, who resembles no one quite so
much as she does an Alice White gone
intellectual, is a cigarette-puffing
nurse whose indecision as to whether
she will fall in love with Morris or Dr.
Ellis (Robert Taylor) is a thread of
the thread-bare theme. And Taylor is
the "other man" -an extremely lik-
able, one too, it may be said.
"Society Doctor" is another motion
picture which is easily categorized. It's
of the "Men in White" school. It of-
fers nothing that this picture did not,
has no improvements. It has, then, no
raison d'etre.

bring few huzzahs from audiences
which have seen Copperfield, "For-
saking All Others" - shows that have
been jam-packed with enjoyment
from flag fall to finish, as it were.

views - which obviously I do."
"Do you consider the University's
action in denying you Hill Auditorium
an abridgement of free speech?" he
was queried. "Well," he came back,
"they were certainly not allowing me
to speak freely."
Asked whether he believes it is pos-
sible for communism to be adopted
in this country without revolution, he
stated, "Yes. I think it is possible,
although I should say unlikely."
"Do you believe it possible in Eng-
land, Mr. Strachey?"
He termed Huey Long a "serious
menace to your country," and believes
that "the Kingfish is far less a clown

Koelz Writes
Of Rare Birds
In Far East
Five papers written by Dr. Walter
N. Koelz, University explorer, con-
taining notes on the some 600 species
of rare birds he collected on his ex-'
pedition last year to Tibet and India,
are being prepared for publication,
University Museums officials an-
nounced recently.
This material, Dr. Koelz pointed
out, was up until a short time ago,
the only thing of its type in the
United States. Recently, however,
the great Rothschild bird collection
has come to the American Museum
in New York City. When this col-
lection is unpacked, Dr. Koelz hopes
to find other material for comparison.
The aid that he will get from the
Rothschild collection will be small,
however, according to word from Dr.
Claude Ticehurst, noted British orni- I
thologist, and editor of the bird maga-
zine, Ibis. In a letter received by
Dr. Koelz here yesterday, Dr. Tice-
hurst said, "Even in the Rothschild
collection, with its some 3,000 speci-
ments, there is little material on
Tibetian and Indian birds."
The names of the papers are:
"Notes on the Winter Birds of Khin-
jar Lake, Sind (Tibet)"; "Winter
Birds of South Punjab (India)";
"Birds of Spiti"; "Birds of the Himal-
aya Foothills"; and "Birds of Zanks-

Princeton Seminr
Dr. Mehmet Aga-Oglu of the orien-
tal art department has been invited
to give a course at the summer sem-
inar in Arabic and Islamic studies to
be held at Princeton University, from
June 20 to July 31, according to an-
nouncement made yesterday by Prof.
Philip Hitti of Princeton, director of
the seminar.
The seminar is the first of its kind
ever attempted, and has been de-
signed ,according to Professor Hitti,
"to meet the needs of advanced schol-
ars in fields linked with the Arab
world and who desire to acquire com-
petence in the Arabic and Islamic
phases of their respective subjects."

on William Randolph Hearst, did the
economist-lecturer refuse a direct an-
swer. "He does not picture events
truthfully -all know that - but no
mere foreigner could describe Hearst
so well as your Professor Beard," he
said. The remarks of Charles A. Beard,
American historian, are noted for
their scathing criticism of the news-
paper magnate.
The dark eyes of the 230 pound son
of a British peer flashed as he em-
phasized his points and twinkled as
he made humorous remarks. A mem-
ber of the crew when he was at Ox-
ford, the powerful radical walked
with an easy swing.
Standing six feet, two inches in
height, Strachey towered above any-
body in Granger's Ballroom where he
spoke. His jet black hair was combed
back in pompadour fashion from his
wide forehead, which narrowed into'
a sharp chin. He spoke rapidly and
earnestly, in broad British accents.
His treatment of newspaper photog-
raphers before he spoke, threw the,
audience into laughter. "Take 'em
now," he told the photographers in
a sharp though chuckling tone. "I
can stand to be shot verbally while I
am speaking, but not that way."

naped, has admitted the abduction
story he told was a "fake."
"The boy has admitted it was a

been writing letters to his stepfather
asking for money."}
Hyde, 19, was reported kidnapedl

after his stepfather, William Lella,

manding $10,000 ransom and threat-
ening the youth with harm.

A Review

The Hillel Players' production of
"Unfinished Picture" is the most out-l
standing local theatrical undertaking
of the year to date. Its execution
gives the play itself the full signifi-
cance which it possesses, and as a
whole, the remarkable organization
and foresighted ingenuity manifest-
ed in the production make it an effort
that is not only noble but should bet
Theodore Cohen, the author, dis-
plays bright potentialities as a play-1
Wright, but as should naturally be
expected of such an early work, "Un-t
finished Picture" is youthfully garish,l
a bit self-conscious, and does not pos-t
sess the full dexterity which would
characterize it as a mature work ofE
art. Comprehensively, the most per-
tinent contemporary problems are
dealt with humanly, somewhat frag-
mentarily, and within an impellingt
dramatic design. The characters arel
generally well conceived but possess,
in part, obviously psychological in-
congruities which present difficulties
to the actors. However, "Unfinished
