THE MICHIGAN DAILY WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER2,1935

Conservation
Is Urged For
Waste Lands
Suggests Turning Poor
Acres Into Hunting And
Fishing Grounds
Emphasizing that thousands of
acres of Michigan land, including
many that are now under cultivation,
are not fit for agriculture, Ernest
L. Anthony, dean of agriculture of
Michigan State College, advised that
this acreage be used for conservation
purposes in his address yesterday
afternoon before the Second Conser-
vation Institute for Women of Mich-
igan.
Dean Anthony also pointed out that
farmers living on the acreage which
is not fit for cultivation usually con-
stitute a social problem. "Even in the
lower parts of Michigan," he con-
tinued, "almost a million acres fall
in this category." He suggested that
a commission, similar to the now de-
funct state-planning board, be
formed, an organization, however,
that is nonpolitical and carries over
from year to year. This commission
would aid greatly in solving the prob-
lem, Dean Anthony believes.
Suggests Plan
Prof. Howard M. Wight, who also
spoke at the Union before the Insti-
tute, suggested a plan whereby the
country land might be beautified and
wild life increased, and in addition
better hunting, trapping, and fishing
might become available. The cost
of the plan would be borne by the
license fees for these activities.
Beginning with a drive through
Nichols Arboretum and Botanical
Gardens and ending with a tea today
at the home of Mrs. James Inglis,'
the last day of the Institute conven-
tion will include many lectures. Scott
Leavitt, of the United States depart-
ment of agriculture, will speak at 9
a.m. on "The Program of the United
States Forest Service in Michigan";'
Gilbert Steward, director of the Mich-
igan Forest Fire Experiment Station,
at 9:45 a.m. on "Controlling Outdoor '
Fires in Michigan"; and Dean S. T.
Dana, of the school of forestry, at
10:45 a.m. on "New Developments in
National Conservation."
115 Members Attendedc
Immediately before the luncheon, to1
be held at the Union, Mrs. Audrey]
DeWitt, of the State Department of
Conservation, will address the Insti-
tute on "Conservation Projects for
Women's Organizations." The after-s
noon lectures consist of "My Walks
in Wilderness Parks" by Miss E. Gen-C
evieve Gillette, of the Michigan Horti-
cultural Society, and "Holland'st
School Forest," by Miss Lida Rogers,
of the Holland High School.I
The final speech will be given atr
3:25 p.m. by R. F. Kroodsma, of Mich-E
igan State college, whose topic will bet
the 4-H conservation projects in
Michigan.

History Of Man As Depicted In Ancient Bible

The title page from one of the early translations of the Bible into
English is shown above. The lavish illustrations indicate the biblical
concept of man's history, with all power emanating from Jehovah,
whose name is written in Hebrew letters in the sun at the top.

U. S. To Begin
Old-Age Grants
To Local Funds
Eligibility Of The Various
States Studied By Social
Security Board
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.-(-
The Social Security Board began a
;op speed drive today to complete
arrangements for making old-age
grants to the states as soon as Con-
gress appropriates the money in Jan-
uary.
Many states will be unable to quali-
fy for the grants, even then, either
because they have no pension laws or
because their laws do not jibe with
the Federal program. The Federal
Goverment will offer pensions up to
$15 a month for the aged needy, pro-
viding the states match the funds.
Laws Being Explained
The board is now examining the
laws of the 30 states which have pen-
sions systems to determine which
comply with the Federal statute. Of-
ficials said several would have to be
modified.
They have found some do not com-
ply with the act because they are op-
tional rather than compulsory on
the counties, and because in some
cases they have residence and citi
zenship requirements that are too
stringent.
Constitutional Obstacles
Several states have constitutional
obstacles in the way of pension laws,
:ncluding Georgia, Florida and Ken-
tucky. The board has been informed
that Texas and Oklahoma already
have approved constitutional amend-
mnents, paving the way for pension
laws to meet Federal requirements,
znd Kentucky is voting this week.
To concentrate on this non-con-
ributory old age pension system, and
he unemployment insurance plan,
which they also hope to put into ef-
ect in January, officials are postpon-
ng preparations for getting the vast
,ontributory old age pension system
ander way.
This projec, a permanent plan for
roviding pensions from funds de-
ived from both workers and employ-
.rs, is not scheduled to start, from a
ax standpoint, until 1937. No bene-
its will be paid until 1942.
Noted Forest Pathologist
Visits Prof. Dow Baxter
Dr. Ralph N. Lmgren, Department
f Agriculture expert on forest path-
logy, was a recent visitor of Prof.
)ow V. Baxter, ofthe forestry school.
Dr. Lingren is especially noted for
is contributions on the treatment'
>f lumber to prevent stain-causing
'ungi in the wood. As a result of his
vork, many of the recommendations
ie has made have been adopted and
re now being followed by both Amer-
:an and European foresters, accord-

By ELSIE A. PIERCE
In spite of popular theories that
the North American Indians were de-
scendants of the tribes of Israel,
scientists have definite proof that
they were 100 per cent Asiatic in de-
scent, Dr. Carl E. Guthe, director of
the museum of Anthropolgy,nsaid
yesterday, delivering the second of
the series of "Michigan, My Michi-
gan" talks over station WJR. The
topic of Dr. Guthe's lecture was "The
Indians of Michigan.'
"Although we have looked for evi-
dences which would tell us that the
Indians were related to the Europ-
eans, we have found nothing," he
said. "The fact is that all American
Indians belong to the same great
race."
In tracing the history of the In-
dians, Dr. Guthe said that the first
families who emigrated from Asia,
coming across the Bering Straits,
settled in and about what is now Al-
aska, and gradually their descendants
moved away and settled new country
to the east.
Leave Records
"Many generations after the first
families came," he continued, "their
descendants learned the concept of
agriculture, which brought to them
the beginnings of civilization."
It was at this point, he stated, that
the Michigan Indians began to leave
records of their activities, and today
scientists are able to reconstruct their
lives from the remnants of their
house, and broken or forgotten instru-
ments and utensils. However he
pointed out that a mere collection of
Indian relics is not enough to inter-
pret their history, but, "much as a
scholar laboriously translates a hiero-
glyphic manuscript, the archaeologist
is able to trace the story of the Mich-
igan Indians."
Copper Plays Important Role
Copper played an important in-
dustrial part in the life of these In-
dians, Dr. Guthe said, for they held a
monopoly on the copper, which was a
precious metal not only to them, but
to their neighbors.
Although little is known of the so-
cial organizations or religion of these

Indians, he pointed out that in gen-
eral they resembled the social group-
ings which existed when the Euro-
peans came to the great lakes. Each
village was divided into clans, each
governed by a leader often called a
chief.
Dr. Guthe stated that "the Indians
were very much like us, trying con-
stantly to make themselves as com-
fortable as possible in the world to
which they were born."
The third lecture on this series,
which is sponsored by the University
Extension department, will be given
by Fielding H. Yost, director of ath-
letics, at 2 p.m. Oct. 29, who will speak
on "Athletes and Athletics in Mich-
igan."
Shirley Temple's
Film Is Censored
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 22.-(IP)
It seems hardly possible, but Den-
mark censors, so Hollywood was told
today, has barred a motion picture in
which the star was Shirley Temple.
Mrs. George Temple, Shirley's mo-
ther, said she heard of it when a Lon-
don newspaper called her for com-
ment.
The picture, which brought Shir-
ley to fame two yearsa go, was "Lit-
tle Miss Marker."
ZION NATIONAL PARK VISITORS
CEDAR CITY, Utah, Oct. 22. - (W)
- Visitors to Zion National park in
the year ending September 30 totaled
97,280, an increase of 28,479 over the
previous 12 months. They included
persons from every state in the union
and from 37 foreign countries.

American Indians Are Entirely
Asiatic in Descent, Guthe Says

pleted a translation which became
known as the Vulgate, because it was
put into vernacular Latin. In the
seventeenth century Catholic scholars
also finished an English translation
called the Douai version.1
Much earlier than that pioneer
Protestants were translating the Bible
into their native language and in
their own way, it is believed. Some
hold that John Wycliffe turned out an
English version as early as 1382. Best
known of these earlier versions is that
of Martin Luther, who translated the
Bible into German. Vernacular copies
of the Bible were also printed in
France, Holland, and Bohemia from
1465 to 1488.
Complete Prim ed Edition
The even;, or greatest important in
all of this, however, was the appear-
ance of the complete printed version
of the Bible in 1535 translated by
Myles Coverdale from the Latin. On
the title page of this first printed
version is written, "Fynished the
Fourth Day of October," although this
may, because of changes in our cal-
endar since then, be anywhere be-
tween Oct. 4 and Dec. 9, according to
our own reckoning.
Variety in the Bibles may* be ac-
counted for by the fact that theyj
were printed in Zurich and imported
to England in unbound form.
A humorous note is to be seen in
Coverdale's difficulties in keeping the
dedication up-to-date. Inscribed in
1535 to Henry VIII and his "dearest,
just wyfe, and most vertuous Pryn.-
cess, Queene Anne," it had to be
changed hurriedly when Queen Anne
was executed on May 19 of the follow-
ing year and Jane Symour become the
"dearest just wyfe." Although in the
second edition, Coverdale had the
dedication changed, he had some
trouble getting around to change all
his first editions extant, making the
change in pen.
Coverdale's predecessor, William
Tyndale, might have had the former's
fame had be been as cautious and
diplomatic. Forced by law to publish

his earlier edition, Tyndale declared
to a priestly opponent: "If God spare
my life, 'ere many years I will cause
a boy that driveth the plow shall
know more of the scriptures than thou
dost." Henry VIII however, was in
no mood to displease the Pope at the
moment, and so Tyndale's Bibles were
never given legitimate entry into Eng-
land.
Collections of rare and unique old
editions of the Bibie are being ex-
hibited in libraries a:! over the world
in celebrationr th:s 400th birthday
of Coverdale's first edition. No per-
fEet copies of this book are known
today, but a number in good condi-
dca are in the possession of libraries
and collectors.

MAKES TT IRD
HE business man who sits in a comfortable chair all day, with
perhaps little more physical exertion than pushing a button to
summon his secretary, may come home at night and say, truthfully,
"I'm all tired out. I've had a hard day." And perhaps this man's
wife looks at him and says, (or thinks!), "What right have you to be
tired? I'm the one that should be tired. Why, you haven't done a bit
of real work all day."
We see the same man finishing his dinner, settling down for a quiet
evening to read his newspaper, gradually nodding off and finally going
to sleep. His work in the office under inadequate light has sapped a lot
of his energy. The process of digesting a heavy meal takes some more,
and when, on top of that, he attempts to read a newspaper under
insufficient light, there isn't enough energy left to keep him awake.
Eyestrain is not the only bad result of poor lighting. In addition to
the abuse to the eyes, large quantities of nervous energy are used up
needlessly. The statement has been made that the office worker who
uses his eyes all day under inadequate light may be actually more tired
at night than the man who spends a day at hard, muscular labor. The
new Science of Seeing has shown quite clearly that it does take energy to
see, that seeing consumes vital energy just as definitely as muscular work.
An interesting laboratory test was made in which subjects were placed
in a comfortable chair and asked to read page after page of a well
printed book, while the intensity of light on the book was being varied.
Each person was asked to place his left hand on a button on the table,
and to push that button at the end of each page. The subject did not
know, however, that the button on which his hand rested was recording
continuously the amount of pressure exerted by his hand as he read.
