Teaehers Get
Jobs With Aid
Of WPA Funds
Correspondence Courses
Being Conducted In 29
Cities In The State
With the aid of WPA funds unem-
ployed teachers have regained em-
ployment in their field of training
and people who would ordinarily be
denied in educational services are
now benefitting from such a service,
it was announced yesterdayby the
WPA Correspondence Study depart-
ment under the sponsorship of the
University Extension Division.
In 29 cities which cover the state
from Detroit to the furthest points
on the upper peninsula supervised
correspondence courses are conduct-
ed by WPA-paid supervisors. Forty
CCC camps in the state operate
under the same government-paid
plan, it was announced. It was esti-
mated that more than 900 people
have already enrolled in these cen-
Of the 97 people employed by the
department 81 hold college degrees.
There are four Ph.D.'s, 26 have mas-
ter's degrees, five are Bachelors of
Science, two hold L.L.B.'s, 37 have
A.B.'s. Only seven hold no degree
and the remaining 16 have not their
educational records available ,the de-
partment announced.
"Some of them were without work
of any kind; others were working at
manual labor; a few were back in
school, attempting to get higher de-
grees, living in some cases, on bor-
educational records available, the de-
"Of these people 92.8 per cent are
on a relief status. They are now do-
ing work for which they are trained,
even though their wages are in no
way commensurate with the qualityI
or quantity of work they are doing,"
the department continued.
Few Poisoned;
By Mushrooms,
In BigSeason'
With the closing of the most pro-
lific season for mushrooms that Dr.
Alexander H. Smith, assistant curat-
or of the University Herbarium, has
seen in the eight years that he has
been in Ann Arbor, and with an un-
usual number of persons having col-
lected the fungi, members of the
Museum find it surprising that a larg-
er number of mushroom poisonings
have not been reported.-
"Few people realize," Dr. Smith
said, "that out of every thousand
species of mushrooms, about 350 are
classifi,ed as poisonous. In other
words, the inexperienced person has
about two chances out of three of
getting edible varieties."
There is no test which can defi-
nitely prove whether or not a mush-
room is safe. Contrary to common
conceptions, the fact that a species
has a pleasant odor, the fact that it
"peels" readily or that it stains silver
when cooked are no indications it is
edible. To be safe, one must learn
to know the species he desires to col-
"One of the most serious errors is
to consider all toadstools posonous
and all mushrooms edible. Actually,
toadstools and mushrooms are but
two names for the identical plant,"
Dr. Smith said.
"There is still another factor which

is seldom considered," Dr. Smith con-
tinued. "The problem of natural
sensitization enters into the ques-
tion of edibility even more in mush-
rooms than in most other foods. Eggs,
which are perfectly harmless forI
most people, sometimes arouses
eczema in certain individuals; while
a mushroom which is harmless for
many people may cause serious di-_
gestive ailments for others.
While in the main, Europeans are
noted to be fairly capable in disting-
uishing mushrooms, immigrants often
confuse the European and American
varieties during their first years on
this side of the Atlantic.
DETROIT, Nov. 11.-()-Two men
dressed as nuns were reported Wed-

funds on Detroit Streets. Mrs. Kath-
erine Benbas told police one man
threatened her with a pistol after
she gave him five cents and then
pointed to his trousers showing be-

Germany, seeking to erase thet

Only one newspaper mentioned the

COLDWATER, Mich., Nov. 11.-(A)

Dixon and Roy Fellers, celebrated Ar-

Dixon's identification tag was re-
moved after he was wounded, attend-
ants thinkinig he was dead, and the
false report was issued before he re-
gained consciousness. Fellers' tag be-
came lost and relatives here attended
a mass for him before news came
that he was alive.

Neb., also was reported killed

said this figure was reduced by dis-

they were joined by the other, gave
police their descriptions. They were
