Ar Arbor boys To
Use Vacation For
Niagvara Falls Trip,
With the coming of spring vacation
this year 20 Ann Arbor boys, ranging
in age from nine to 12 years, will set
out for the great unknown with over
$150 between them, a new Ford truck
for transportation and Niagara Falls
their ultimate and long wished for
destination. With them will be Mil-
ford Boerms, '37, counsellor at the
University of Michigan Camp for
Boys, supervisor and honorary mem-
ber of the Bach Travellors' Club.
The club was organized, with the
help of the counsellor, by these boys,
who attended the camp last summer,
and who, continuing to spend their
leisure time together in sports and in
taking short trips, decided last Oc-
tober to form an organization by
which they could make enough money
to take them all to Niagara Falls.
Since that time, the boys have been
working one or two days a week col-
lecting papers and salvage to sell and
giving rummage and bake sales, aided
by their families, with $150 as results.
' They have planned the entire trip
themselves, marking out the route,
deciding where to stop on the way
to see such places as the Welland
Canal, Watkins Glen, the Corning
glass works, Akron rubber factories
and other spots of interest.
The club is one of the numerous
outgrowths of the Ann Arbor Guid-
ance Project, started last fall with
the aim of following the campers for
a year and helping to organize their
activities. The project is under the
direction of Prof. L. J. Carr.
Col. Henry W. Miller of the engi-
neering college will speak tonight at
a banquet of the University of Michi-
gan Club of Toledo on the present
state of European politics, the Italo-
Ethiopian affair in particular. Col.
Miller will be accompanied by T.
Hawley Tapping, general secretary of
the Alumni Association and Robert
0. Morgan, council secretary of the
Alumni Association.

bers, but at present the local group
will be limited to six.
By association with representative
town and faculty men the students
selected will become familiar with the
workings of Rotary and the purposes

fessor of economics at the University

Olson Says Expt
Of School Discq
European Tour Revealed
Many More Nationalistic
Youth Organizations
After spending about five months
touring 12 countries on the continent,
Prof. Willard C. Olson, director of
research in child development, has
returned to his duties in the School
of Education impressed with the dis-
appearance of the experimental types
of schools in those nations which are
controlled by dictators.
"The schools," he said, "are becom-
ing more conservative and more, and
more dominated by state pur-
poses." Citing Italy and Germany as
typical examples, he discussed out-of-
school organizations, especially in
Italy, which are attempting to instill
the principles of nationalim in its
citizens at an early age, and other
supplementary groups which are de-
signed for providing programs for
leisure periods.
The Opera Balilla Nazionale, an
organization for Fascisti youth be-
tween the ages of 8 and 14, is per-
haps the best machine for govern-
ment propaganda that Italy posesses,
he stated. It has just been organized
on a corporate basis and will fit in
with the new system of government
corporations. The purposes of the
Balilla are to develop the spirit of
discipline and to provide premilitary,
physical, cultural, professional, voca-
tional and religious training for the
Italian youth.
The next step in the training per-
iod, Professor Olson explained, is the
Avanguardisti for boys between the
ages of 14 and 18. The graduation

throughout the country.
Another group whose activities are
carried on in conjunction with thoseT
of the Ballilla is the Dopolavaro, T ursdIa
which is designed as a training course
for future leaders of the Balilla, Pro-
fessor Olson added. They do their
practice teaching in the ready organ- Friday
ized groups, and after they complete
their training, go out to form new
squadrons for the Balilla.
Reminiscent of the days of the Saturday
Caesars is the organization of the
troops, he continued. The smallest
unit is the squadron, which is com-
posed of 11 boys and their leaders.
All the other units are formed on the
basis of three, three squadrons mak-
ing a manipulum, three manipula
making a centurium and three cen-
turia making a cohort. The largest
unit is the legion, which is composed
of three cohorts. Membership in the
Balilla is limited to those who have
the consent of their parents. A tui-
tion fee is also required.
Although education in Europe is
limited to the ability to pay and a
general philosophy of "education for
place" prevails, Professor Olson
pointed to Sweden as one of the na-
tions in which experimental educa-
tion is making great strides forward.
"Social, political and economic Ju
conditions modify the educational
philosophy of every country," he said,
"and the cooperative nurseries and
day schools in Sweden are evidences

made famous over the air or thru re-
cordings by nationally-known orches-
The students who take part in the
presentation are: Sam Stoller and
Ellis Moerman, singers, and Clare
Wigell, trombone and Ernest Jones,

gram is heightened by the use of
bizarre lighting and color effects.

This is a BUSINESS with us.

STUDYING OR READING under poor light will injure your
eyes. Let us help you preserve your eyesight by sending you
a Sight Meter. By means of the "electric eye," this instrument
measures the amount of light in a room as accurately as a
thermometer measures heat.
Recent surveys show that not one home in ten is lighted
according to the minimum standards necessary to preserve eye-
sight. Poor lighting is responsible to a large degree for the
astounding prevalence of defective eyesight! Four out of ten col-
lege students suffer the handicap of impaired vision. There are
no substitutes for the services of an eyesight specialist, but good
lighting helps to protect eyes, good and bad, young and old.
It will help you to do better work, more easily and quickly.
You can measure your lighting with a Sight Meter. That is
the only way to know definitely whether or not your lighting
is adequate. There is no charge of any kind for Sight Meter
service. Call the Detroit Edison office.
