tor H. P. Orr, of Caro, now a mem-
ber of the state crime commission
and Warden John Ryan of the Feder-
al prison at Milan.
Four questions of particular inter-
est to local authorities and execu-
tives have been selected for discus-
sion sections. The first, on "The
Role of the School" in regard to the
delinquency problem, will be presided
over by Superintendent Chapelle of
Ypsilanti. Principal G. R. Koopman
of Ann Arbor will lead the discussion.
"Conditions in Washtenaw Villages"
will be the subject for a group under
the leadership of Harvey Mayering,
research assistant in the University,
and presided over by the Rev. Wil-
liam Jerome, president of Dexter vil-
A third section, on "Local and
County Cooperation" in dealing with
delinquency, will be presided over by
Prof. Charles Elliott of Ypsilanti
State Normal College. Miss Lois
Heitman, county welfare agent, will
lead the discussion.
The fourth group under the lead-
ership of Prof. Howard Y. McClpisky
of the school of education and with
Mrs. Herbert Mallory of the state
psychopathic hospital presiding, will
discuss the problem of "The Home
and Juvenile Delinquency."
Reo istration Of
Biology Camp
Seventy-seven students represent-
ing more than 25 states have already
enrolled for the University's summer
biological camp which will hold its
session from June 24 to' August 17
on the shores of Douglas Lake in
Cheboygan county, Michigan.
This registration,, which is limited
to 100, includes 33 single men, 35
single women and nine married men
and women. Professor George La-
Rue, the station's director, says that
at least 70 per cent of those attend-
ing the camp are college graduates,
a large proportion of them being
teachers. The group at the station
is, therefore, quite mature, but the
20 courses offered are open to all'
college students who have had ele-
mentary training in zoological or bio-
logical work and are interested in
either of these fields.
About 90 or 95 are expected to!
have enrolled by the beginning of
the session. A sizeable body of these
men and women will be spending a
second or third season at the station.
There is a series of pictures on dis-
play in the second floor corridors of
the Natural Science building which
demonstrates the variety of activities.

Lieut. Williams Lectures About
Opportunities In Naval Reserve

An opportunity for any graduate of
any college in the University was
described last night whent Lieut.
Charles D. Williams, commander of
the Naval Reserve Aviation Base at
Grosse Ile, Michigan, spoke here on
the new system of aviation training
in the reserve.
A bill, passed by Congress during
the past week, enables every senior
graduating in June, or at the end of
Summer school, and all graduates,
single, and under 27 years of age, to
be eligible for an appointment as a
Naval Cadet for aviation. Graduates
of any college, regardless of previous
training, who are American citizens
may be appointed.
The training course involves four
years of enlistment, the first year
spent in training at Pensacola, Fla.,
and the remaining three years to be
spent in active duty with the various
squadrons of the United States Fleet.
During the first year the cadets will
be given the same ground school in-
struction and flying training 'as is
given the regular officers of the Navy
who are under training as naval avia-
After the first year, the cadet goes
to one of the aircraft squadrons of
the battle fleet. After completion of
his work here he is discharged into
civilian life with the privilege of ac-
cepting a commission in the Naal
Health Service
Activities Show
Some Increase
Demand For.Service Shows
No Tendency To Decline
In March Reports
Statistics of Health Service activ-
ities for March released yesterday by
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director, in-
dicate that the increase in demand
for service, noted throughout the year,
shows no tendency to diminish.
"This continued increase in re-
quests for service in the absence of
epidemics " or increased serious ill-
ness is the outstanding feature in the
report that impresses the staff," Dr.
Forsythe said. "The experience is
being observed as a rare situation in
which a population may secure al-
mose unlimited medical service with-
out the least hindrances."
Data for March shows only one
small decrease in service rendered,
that of bed patients, which fell from
219 in the corresponding month in
1934 to 208. A substantial rise was re-
corded in the number of dispensary
calls, 10,241 to 12,070.
Mental hygiene interviews increased
by 453, and laboratory examinations
rose 1,412. X-ray examinations went
up 25, and eye refractions 12. There
were eight more tonsil and nose oper-
ations, and four more operations for
acute appendicitis.
Dietitian conferences increased by
31, and prescriptions filled rose from
1,543 to 1,567. There was one death.
Figures from July 1 to March 31 for
the current fiscal year show a marked
rise in dispensary calls, from 69,126
in 1934 to 81,074 in the current year.
Dietitian conferences increased by
Mental 'hygiene interviews rose 809,
while laboratory examinations went
up 8,949. A decrease of 138 in the
number of colds reported was noted,
and of 10 in the number of tonsil
and nose operations. The number of
deaths in each year was one.

The bill provides that these naval
cadets, of whom over 500 are to be
appointed by the Naval Department
before July, 1936, will be paid $75 a
month, including flight pay while at
Pensacola, and $125 a month includ-
ing flight pay, during the remaining
three years of active duty. In addi-
tion to this the bill provides that a
subsistence allowance of a dollar a
day is paid throughout the four years.
Necessary uniforms and equipment
will be provided while at Pensacola,
and a uniform allowance of $150 will
be made when the cadet joins the
fleet. A government insurance policy
of $10,000 is maintained for each
cadet during the entire period of
training, and may be continued by the
cadet after discharge. Upon dis-
charge each cadet will be paid the
sum of $1,500.
Flagpole Gets First Coat
Of Paint In Three Years
The University flagpole received
its first coat of paint in three years
yesterday, as Charles Bennett, 45-
year-old steeplejack from Ionia, com-
pleted the perilous task of refinishing
the 125-foot staff.
The pole is usually painted every
two years, according to officials of the
buildings and grounds department,
but last year it apparently was over-
The flag did not fly from the flag-
pole either Wednesday afternoon or
yesterday morning while the painting
was going on.


County Welfare
Plans Opening
Of CCC Camps,

Mountain, Waterloo
Considered Possible


Bill Provides Jail
For Payroll Default
LANSING, April 18 -UP)- Employ-
ers who default on their payrolls
may face a jail term if the Legisla-
ture finally enacts a proposed modi-
fication to the present statute.
The Senate Wednesday passed and
sent to the house a bill providing a
maximum fine of $100 or a 90-day
term, or both, for employers who fail
to meet their payrolls. The present
law provides only for the fine.

Two CCC camps may be established
in Washtenaw county during the
next four weeks according to a state-
ment issued by Clarence H. Elliott,
county welfare administrator.
Tentative plans would call for the
setting up of camps at Peach Moun-
tain, near Portage Lake, and at Wat-
erloo, in the western part of the
county. A survey of possible sites
for the two camps is already under
way according to Mr. Elliott.
Nearly 50 young men left for campsI
from the county Wednesday and as
a result the list of local applicants is
almost exhausted. Further applica-
tions are expected during the course
of the week at the welfare offices.
No definite assurance that the men
enlisting would be stationed at the
projected local establishments was is-
Plans for a CCC administration
building on Peach Mountain are al-
ready in the hands of the state wel-
fare commission, ,and work on the
project is expected to start next week
according to Mr. Elliott. Tentative
plans for the Waterloo camp have al-
ready been made and it will probably
act as a unit in working on the Na-
tional Park which is planned to ex-
tend into both Jackson and Wash-
tenaw county. A camp is also planned
for Jackson county in the project.
