Alder Reports
Boys' Outdoor
Camp Enlarged
Camping Period Extended
And Accomodations For
More BoysProvided
Extension of the University Fresh
Air Camp plant to care for sixty per-
cent more boys, and the lengthening
of the camping period from two
weeks to four and eight weeks were
cited as major accomplishments of
the camp in 1935 in a report to trust-
ees made yesterday by Director
George G. Alder.
Organization of a 12-months con-
tinuous educational program for more
than 100 Ann Arbor boys was one of
the high points of advance in 1935,
Mr. Alder said, adding that last sum-
mer the main building at the camp,
which is near Pinckney, was prac-
tically completed and six new cab-
ins were constructed.
The camp's name has been changed
from Fresh Air Camp to the Uni-
versity Camp for Boys, which Mr.
Alder said seemed more in keeping
with the "high ideals and purposes
of the University of Michigan."
Aiming to the truly democratic,
the camp gives each boy a voice in
its affairs, and a like amount of work
is done by each member. During
the two-hour project period each af-
ternoon the boys engaged in handi-
craft, music, swimming, boating,
fishing, dramatics, boxing, nature
study, reading and other activities.
Of 308 attending boys last year,
100 were Ann Arbor boys, in camp
for eight weeks. They were chosen
by the Family Welfare Bureau and
the Ann Arbor Public Schools. The
report showed that 208 boys were se-
lected by social agencies in Detroit,
Hamtramck, Highland Park and
Wyandotte, and these groups stayed
in camp for four weeks.
Physical examinations of the
"screening" type, given to 281 boys,
revealed a number of defects among
which were malnutrition, defective
teeth and diseased tonsils. In a few
of the more serious cases steps were
taken to correct these faults, the re-
port stated. Dr. Warren E. Forsythe
director of the Health Service, super-
vised the health program with the
assistance of Dr. George May, pro-;
fessor of physical education. An in-,
firmary away from the camp, is
needed, as well as a not water bath
and shower facilities, it was shown. ,
With a total of 1458 "boy-weeks,",
the cost per boy-week was $8.90, as
compared with $8.05 for 1934. "Con-
sidering the increased cost of food1
products, we believe the figure repre-
sents, as usual, careful economy of,
administration," Mr. Alder said.

Don't hgh-ha
Q UITE a few years ago (when
the class of 1911 was learn-
ing the one-step) Tin Pan Alley
produced a song with a chorus
that started out ...
"I'm the guy that put the salt
in the ocean!"
Well, the ocean is a good place
for salt, and so are peanuts. But
that's not half the story ...
Du Pont chemists take com-
mon salt as a basic ingredient
and produce things as far apart
as insecticides for farmers and
cosmetics for lovely ladies.
Out of the stuff you like on

Some day you may be riding on

man-made rubber, "DuPrene"

Salt provides a good example
