Child Institute
Location May
Instigate Trial
Washitenaw Ave. Property
Holders May Object To
Proposed Building
Prospects of legal action by Wash-
tenaw Avenue residents were seen
with the announcement yesterday of
Fred L. Woodworth that the Michi-
gan Children's Institute would be
established on the Hoover property
by Nov. 1.
The residents assert that they have
paid for "high restrictions" and are
determined to keep the Institute out
of this residential district, according
to spokesmen. Their case will be
fought to the Supreme Court if nec-
essary, they say.
Most strenuous objections to the
establishment of the Institute on the
Hoover property have come from
residents and property owners on
Melrose Ave., Devonshire Rd., and
Tuomy# Rd., which are adjacent to
the proposed site.
The State charges the property
owners of being ignorant of the pur-
poses of the Institute, but they are
hotly denied by local residents.
The city council, in an effort to
legalize the construction of the In-
stitute near Washtenaw Ave., took
steps to change the zoning laws of
Ann Arbor, Property owners accuse
this body as desiring to help the bond-
Orphaned children and those with-
out means of support will be kept
at this Institute until their care can
be provided for, according to plans
of welfare officials.
This Institute was moved to Ann
Arbor from Coldwater by an act of
the legislature in its last session. The
Coldwater Institution is now the
Michigan Children's Village.
Favorable action by bondholders on
a $37,000 bid submitted on the prop-
erty by the State is expected, Wood-
worth said yesterday. A bondhold-

50 Special Agents Open
Investigation To Speed
Job-Making Campaign
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23. - (AP) -
The federal government put 50 spe-
cial investigators on the trail of work
relief grafters today.
This action was one of several de-
velopments as the administration
sought to speed its job-making cam-
pagin. Others included:
1-The $147,000,000 rivers and har-
bors allotment was slashed by $16,-
000,000 to give additional funds for
works progress projects. Included in
this cut, was $5,000,000 taken from
an initial allotment of $10,000,000 to
start construction of the Passama-
quoddy Bay, Maine, project to har-
ness the tides and generate power.
2-Aubrey Williams, acting WPA
administrator, reiterated his predic-
tion that the federal direct relief or
'"dole" machinery would be liquidated
in most of the state during Novem-
3-A survey by the Federal Relief

Administration disclosed that state
governments are increasing their ex-
penditures for the destitute.
Most of the special investigators in-
structed to trace down grafting are
former "G-men." Acting under the
direction of Dallas Dort, head of the
WPA division of investigation, they
will work out of Washington and 13
regional 'offices and have been in-
structed to co-operate with other
Federal agencies, including the secret

Soccer Team May Institute
International Traditions Here

Union Sponsors
Year's Initial
Frosh Forum,

Soccer, or, as it is rightfully called,
association football, made its initial
bow at the University of Michigan
Tuesday. This ancient game, older
than polo and the most basic forms
of baseball, is believed to have been
originated by the Egyptians, and has,
in recent times become popularized
in every nation on the earth.
In England, where it has been the
outstanding sport for centuries, im-
portant matches draw huge atten-
dance, as in the case of the recent
Irish-English-Scotch matches, which
were witnessed by over 100,000
persons. The game was brought to
America by early English and Scotch
settlers, and since then, Scotch semi-
professional teams have contributed
in large measure towards its advance.
In the last two decades, all of the
eastern colleges and universities, and
a small number of mid-western and
western universities, have developed
varsity and freshman teams, some of
which compete in inter-sectional
games. In the east a 'Big Three
League,' and a 'Little Three League,'
participated in by Williams, Amherst
and Wesleyan, has been organized,
and annual competition is held.
First Team Disbanded
An attempt to organize an official
university team was made six years
ago, but the team ran afoul of the
International Rules Committee in in-
stituting some original changes, and
was disbanded. This year, Theodore
Wuerfel, '28, has organized a team
composed largely of foreign students,
a number of whom have played on
champion near-east teams; eight dif-
ferent nationalities are represented
on the group. In this number are
students from Egypt, Syria, Spain,
China and Great Britain.
Two substitutions for soccer-code-
ball and speedball - are now being
played at the University, but neither
has the interest nor requires the skill
of the original game. Association
football is played by two teams of 11
men each, five in the forward line,
three halfbacks, two fullbacks and a
Forwards Face Each Other
The teams line up with the forward
lines facing each other; the center
of the team which is kicking off kicks/
the ball to one of the forwards, and
the ball is then in play. All parts

of the body except the hands and
arms may come in contact with the
ball, and the purpose of the game is
to place the ball, which is spherically
shaped, through the opponents goal.
Each goal scored counts one point.
The rules of the game make clean,
fast play a necessity, and a well
played game often ends in a scoreless
The newly organized team at the
University, which, for obvious rea-
sons, is called the 'International Soc-
cer Team, has won its first game, and
shows promise of a successful sea-
son in view of the fact that all of its
members have played on teams in
universities in their own countries.
The advent of a soccer team is a
truly auspicious occassion, not only
because the game has met with such
universal: success elsewhere, but also
because it is considered one of the
finest of games for developing in-
stincts of sportsmanship and fair-

Talks To Boys'
Guidance Club
The high school interests of in-
coming freshmen were discussed by
Prof. E. D. Mitchell, director of the
Intramural department, last night in
his address before the Ann Arbor
Boys Guidance Project group. He
also discussed the bearings of his
findings on a guidance for younger
Last summer the guidance project
took one hundred Ann Arbor boys,
ranging from nine to fourteen years
old, to the University of Michigan
Camp for boys at Patterson Lake.
Five of the upperclass university stu-
dents who were counsellors at this
camp were present last night along
with many others interested in boys.
These five counsellors are continu-
ing their work with the boys and are
conducting recreational and social
work with them throughout the com-
ing school year.
Before each meeting the counsel-
lors prepare questions and problems
about their group which are given to
the speaker and are informally dis-
cussed in the weekly meetings.

The first in the series of Fresh-
man Forums sponsored by the Union
for the benefit of incoming students
was held Tuesday in the north lobby
of the Union.
More than 75 freshmen attended
the discussion which was arranged by
the Student-Faculty Relations Com-
mittee "in order to help newcomers
to the campus become adjusted to
University life, and to help them
solve all problems that might have
Prof. Bennett Weaver of the English
department conducted the discussion
and Rush Bowman, '37, executive
councilman in charge of the meetings,
Union officials stated that for the
following two weeks forums would be
held at 4:15 p.m. on each Tuesday and
that Professor Weaver would also be
present for these two discussions.
In the past it has been the custom
to sponsor the forums for freshmen
either during orientation week or in
the latter part of the second semes-
ter. But Bowman stated that this
plan was abandoned this year "be-
cause it was thought that during
orientation week the freshmen really
nad few problems and that the for-
ams held in the Spring were too law
to really accomplish anything or to a
the new students any real good."
