THE MICHIGAN BDATLY

SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 137

__ a. _ . s .. _ . _ s s ~ _.

meeting was Lorena M. Gary, of]
Western State Teacher's College,
whose paper dealt with "Byron's
Opinion of His Contemporaries."
Through Byron's letters to Shelley,
Miss Gary found thatrthetwo were
on very friendly terms, and that By-
ron was frank in acknowledging his
fondness for Shelley's work. On the
other hand, according to Miss Gary,
Byron had no patience with Words-
worthzandcColeridge, and this dislike
extended to their work.
During the course of the meeting,
officers for. the language and litera-
ture division of , the academy for
next year were chosep. They are
Prof. W. A. Reichart of the G'erinan
department, chairman, and Prof. C.
D. Thorpe of the English department,
secretary.
LaI dscaping
The absence of artificiality and
tourist development will be features
of the development of Isle Royale as
a national park, Donald Wolbrink,
landscape architect in the National
Park Service, stated in the session on
landscape architecture. He described
the master plan of Isle Royale as a
park, preserved as one of the few Wvil-
derness sections left in the country.
Outstanding features of the Sag-
iiaw city-planning project were ex-
plained by Rssell Koenig, Superin-
tendent. of Parks for the city of
saginaw in another talk. These in-
cluded zoning, correction of a comp-
licated street system, improving rail-
road crossings in the city, develop-
ment of a city park system along
the Saginaw river, study for a port
district and the rerouting of high-
ways around the city.
Sociology
The narcotic problem is medical-
psychological in nature, Maurice
Floch of the Detroit House of Cor-

rection said of the sociology group.
The narcotic addict uses drugs
because of some disease or unem-
ployment to relieve the pain or for-]
get his troubles, he said. The habit
is very expensive, and for this reason
most addicts must beg or steal, Mr.
Floch declared.
Prof. Arthur E. Wood of the so-
ciology department, speaking on the
"Reorganization of the Penal Sys-
tem in Michigan" said that the lack
of coordinating bodies was in large
measure responsible for the poor rec-
ord shown by this state.
The three main boards, prison, pa-
roe aind probation, lack a centralized
system now, but a bill is before the
state legislature at present and would
iron out many of the difficulties, Pro-
fessor Wood stated.
Speaking on "Community Aspects
of Narcotic Addiction," Edward C.
Jandy of Wayne University said yes-a
terday that the number of drug ad-
dicts at the present time, while not
unusually large, was costing the state,
private citizens and merchants a
startling amount of money.
Geography
Soil erosion, which has been held
responsible for destruction of fer-
tility in 100 million acres of Amer-
iean land, and threatens to render
useless 200 million more, must be
checked if the United States is to in-
sure a high standard of living, in the
opinion of Dr. Helen M.. Strong of
the U. S. Department of Agriculture
who spoke before the geography sec-
tion.
Satsuma, famed for its chinaware,
has integrated the trinity of man,
land and the heavens, which is the
central theme of Japanese philoso-
phy, according to Erma B. Hodgsonj
of Bay City Junior College.
"Chinampas," legendary floating
gardens in the rivers of Mexico which
were reported as actualities by Hum-

boldt, German naturalist, and Pres-
cott, author of "The Conquest of
Mexico," are fictional in the opinion
of Norman S. Willey of the German
department.
"The chinampas we're the result of
marsh reclamation," Mr. Willey said.
"They never floated, and if they
showed any inclination to do so, their
owners would probably have stakedc
them down."1
Dr. Charles M. Davis of the geog-
raphy department, was elected chair-X
man for the geography section next1
year, replacing Bert Hudgins, chair-r
iman of the current session.<
Forestry
Selective cutting will aid not onlyt
the owner of the timber in the long
run, but will add to the economic sta-t
bility of nearby communities which
would otherwise depend on recrea-
tion for their major industry, J. F. "
Franson of the Huron National For-
est told the forestry section yesterday
in its morning session in Room 2054,_
Natural Science Building.
CCC boys did splendid work dur-
ing the Isle Royale fire last summer, I
and what they lacked in experience
they made up in enthusiasm, D. G.
Cooper told the forestry section yes-
terday afternoon. The fire showed,
he continued, the need for modern
fire trails, patrols and equipment, a
situation which is now being rem-
edied.
Less than one per cent of Mich-j
igan's timber area is marketable, J. A.
Mitchell of the Lakes States Forest'
Experiment Station stated. There
are 43 times as many chances of a
fire in non-timber regions and 13,
times as many in a second growth
district as in marketable timber, he
said.
STrees on Michigan State highways
contribute greatly to the comfort
and safety of the tourist, R. E. Palmer
of the State Highway Department
declared in another talk before the
afternoon session. Forests and other
cover types on highway rightaways.
are major factors in the durability of
the roads because they prevent ero-
sion, which is the highway engineer's
deadly enemy, he said.
Prof. Donald M. Matthews of the
forestry school was elected chairman
of the 1938 forestry section of the
Academy.
Botany
Dr. J. H. Ehlers of the botany de-
partment of the University of Mich-
igan addressed the botany division
of the Academy in Room 2003 of the
Natural Science Building on "Addi-
tions to the Flora of Michigan."
According to Dr. Ehlers the most
important of the, additions to the
known flora of Michigan is. the Ca-
bomba Caroliniana, a water plant
which was originally found in South
Carolina. This plant was discovered
in Michigan by Mr. Fred Rapp of
Vicksburg.
A. H. Smith pointed out marked
similarity between European fungi
and fungi found on the west coast
of the United States.

Copeland Recounts Humorous
Tales Of Trip Through Europe

By ROBERT PERLMANI
Social unrest, war fears and con-
cern for the future, gripped Europe,
though to a lesser degree, Russia
France and EngianG, during the1
period of his tour ending last Aug-
ust, Prof. Arthur H. Copeland of the
mathematics department said yester-2
day.
Professor Copeland, who held at
Guggenheim fellowship in mathema-
tics during sabbatical leave abroad,
said Germany, one of the 15 coun-
tries he and his wife and son visited,
is faced with a decrease in its univer-
sity enrollment, despite the con-1
Religious eets
to Be E Ianed
" 1
At Sypovsium
Confucianists, Catholics, Jews and
Protestants will hear the viewpoints
on God of their respective religions
explained from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday
in the Grand Rauids Room of the
League.
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the his-
tory department will give the main
address on "Does the Universe Reveal
Intelligence?" a topic which will be
approached from different aspects by
Dr. Bernard Heller, director of Hillel
Foundation who will give the Jewish
view of God, Prof. William A. Mc-
Laughlin, of the French department
who will give the Catholic answer
to this question and Dr. Yuen Z.
Chang, visiting lecturer in English,
who will explain the Confucian atti-
tude.
This session of the Symposium is
the last in a series of inter-faith
conferences.
The Symposium, sponsored by the
Council of Religious Education, is
under the charge of Robert Friedman,
'37, chairman of the publicity com-
mittee, Jack Luther, Grad., chairman
of the program committee, and Cath-
erine Peck, '387, chairman of the re-
ception committee.

struction of new university buildings.
"Military training, which begins soon
after matriculation, causes many
students to leave the universities,"
Professor Copeland said.
When their group was viewing the
scenery from the Schloss Hohen-
zollern, Mrs. Copeland raised her arm
to point to something in the dis-
tance, whereupon a man immediately
gave the Nazi salute in return shout-
ing "Heil Hitler."
"There is a story circulating in
Germany," Professor Copeland said,
"of a man who was tired of reading
the official press, so he asked the
owner of a newstand for some true
reading matter. The owner of the
stand offered him a time-table.
"In Austria, where some influen-
tial people said the government
feared a vote because of a Nazi vic-
tory, "they actually have a fascist
regime," Professor Copeland declared.
Professor Copeland saw Charlie
Chaplin's "Modern Times" and a
Mickey Mouse short in a theatre
which excluded "children under 16
from the performance."
Professor Copeland spent 12 days
in Russia, where, he said, "there
seemed to be more time, but less aca-
demic freedom, than exists in
America, for the mathematicians to
do research work without teaching
classes." "Although the Russians are
making mistakes, and although when
I was there the big cities were over-
crowded, they are moving in the
direction of a fuller material life,
more free education and greater de-
mocracy," he declared. Although
guided by the Intourist service, Pro-
fessor Copeland said he had complete
freedom to go where he wanted. The
Metro, Moscow's subway, he said, is
the finest he has seen "and far su-
perior to the New York subs."
