Origin Of Borneo Industry
Is Subject Of University
The beginning of the large rubber
plantations in Borneo and other parts
of the Middle East began when a
British explorer, Henry Wickham,
smuggled some 70,000 rubber seeds
out of Brazil, and took them to Lon-
don where they were planted was
one of the descriptions given by Prof.
Donald M. Mathews, of the forestry
school, in a talk over the University
radio station yesterday.
From these seedlings, Professor
Mathews declared, a little less than
2,000 seedlings were raised, which
were shipped to Ceylon and planted
there. From the seed of the resulting
trees, "the six and a half million
acres of rubber plantations of the
Middle East have developed." Since
this industry developed so quickly,
the industry soon used up the old tea,
coffee, and coconut plantations on
which rubber trees were first planted,
and a great demand for new areas of
wild jungle land was created, he
Since the best land for rubber
plantations was the land which was
best for forests, Professor Mathews
was surveying the unexplored, unfa-
miliar parts of Borneo. "The commer-
cial exploration of a tropical forest
area is an interesting job but one
hard work," he pointed out. "The
natural forest cover is so dense that
no idea can be obtained of the stand-
ing timber or of the soil conditions
existing beneath the main tree can-
opy, without penetrating the jungle
on foot. Airplane surveys would tell
one little about the area except that
it was covered with forests, and this,
in a country like Borneo, one can be
pretty sure of without getting into the
air to find out."
Jungle Very Dense
"The jungle is so dense," Professor
M hews emphasized, "and so full of
climbing vines and rattan that a path
has to be .cut with a knife for every
step that one moves. On the aver-
age a line two miles long could not
be covered in under 6 to 8 hours, and
often the vegetation is so dense that
one can look back over the line he
has covered down a green and leafy
tunnel, seeing nothing of the country
on either side."
Professor Mathews also attempted
to correct the common misconcep-
tions of the tropics. The climate of
the lowerelevations of the tropics,
within a few hundred miles of the
seacoast is in reality the only tem-
perate climate in the world, he said.
In the so-called "temperate" zone, we
have an annual range of temperature
of 100 to 150 degrees; in the tropics
at sea-level the average maxima

Manager Of State I
William Halstead, of the speech de-
partment, and manager of the Michi-
gan High School Forensic Associa-
tion, is still puzzling over why a de-
bating team from the upper penin-
sula will travel more than 100 miles,
including a trip across the Straits of
Mackinac, to debate with the Chey-
bogen High School Debating team.
Mr. Halstead, who is new at the job
of managing the Association, under-
stood that the custom is to bring to-
gether teams in nearby towns, and
that was just what he planned to do.
But Cheybogan's coach, Carl Titus,
had never heard of Inwood before, so
he set out to find the spot indicated
on the map. It proved to be a "ghost
town," sans school or any other build-
Mr. Halstead investigated, and
found, too late, that the town of In-
wood which was registered in the As-
sociation, is in Schoolcraft County, in
the upper peninsula. And that is'
why, on Friday night, two teams from
the extreme ends of the state will
meet for the first time in the history
of the Association, in a preliminary

throp, James Briegel, and Marion
Holden were out in front by small
margins, but the State Street hege-
mony was cracked by the victories of
two Washtenaw candidates- Jean
Greenwald and Mary Potter - who
ran ahead of their tickets.
The United Engineers' candidate
for president, Miller Sherwood, Sigma
Phi, defeated George Malone, inde-
pendent Consolidated, by a vote of
101 to 75, as his fellow nominees
took the remaining three posts of
primary importance. Cedric Sweet
defeated Allen Upson for vice-presi-
dent by the top-heavy count of 123
to 55; William Sheehan downed Mel-
ville Hyatt for the secretarial post,
90 to 84; and Jack asley easily beat
Edward VanderVelde for treasurer,
115 to 61, to solidify the defeat of
the Consolidated Engineers.
Possibly the day's honors for pro-
viding the ultimate in hair-raisers
go to Burton Coffey, of the Uniteds,
who nosed out Jack Sinn of the Con-
solidateds for representative on the
Honor Council, 86 to 85. Francis
Wallace, 36, president of the Engi-
neering Council, told The Daily last
night that this vote, in particular,
had been "very carefully" checked.
William Lowell, of the Consolidated
Engineers, brightened his party's
horizon by winning the Engineering
Council post from Jack Cooper, 87
to 85. This vote as also checked,
The Consolidated group further re-
deemed itself by snaring the two J-

U. S. Delegates
Are Named To
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20.- (/P) -
The Roosevelt administration's sur-
prise move in naming William Phil-
lips, undersecretary of state, as a
delegate to the London naval con-
ference opening Dec. 6 was interpret-
ed today as a sign the parley is con-
sidered of major importance.
Phillips, a career man with long
experience in international affairs,
will be a member of a delegation
headed by Norman H. Davis, "roving
ambassador." Admiral William H.
Standley, the navy's highest ranking
officer, was selected as another mem-
The first indication of the policy
to be upheld by the American dele-
gates was given last night by Presi-
dent Roosevelt. It is a policy of oppo-
iition to any increases of naval
strength beyond present limits.
The United States, Mr. Roosevelt
said, will oppose the building of navies
that cost nations more than they cost
today. Whether this meant that the
United States would oppose Japan's
long-standing desire for naval equal-
ity with the United States and Great,
Britain was not stated, though some
observers placed this construction on
the American position.
