Unmarried, Able Males Who Sew
May Enter Coast Guard Service

U.S Academy Gives Men
Chance For Cadetships
In $3,000,000 Plant
By EARL R. GILMAN
If you are an unmarried, physical-
ly able male who can sew and pass a
test in mathematics and English, you
are eligible to be appointed to a
cadetship at the U. S. Coast Guard
Academy located at New London
Conn., according to a dispatch the
University Bureau of Occupationa
Information recently received from
U.S. Coast Guard Captain Leroy
Reinborg.
Reinborg stated that the Coast
Guard service has received many
communications from students in
preparatory schools and from col-
lege undergraduates for information
on entering the U.S. Coast Guard as
a career and the $3,000,000 academy
as preparation for that career.
An officer in the service will be in
Ann Arbor, Reinborg said, sometime
during this spring to interview stu-
dents who may be interested in ap-
plying for cadetships.
An examination for those who pass
the preliminary tests in the interview
will be given in June. The test will
be on English, grammar, composition,
and expression; the history of English
literature will conclude part one. The
second unit is on mathematics and,
according to the dispatch, is similar
to comprehensive examinations in
elementary mathematics for college
entrance board requirements. There
is special significance given to solid
geometry.
Following the written examina-
tions, there is a physical examination
in which the applicant's general
adaptibility, character, achievement,
leadership and' athletic ability are
considered.
Reinborg pointed out that the
academy offers a well-balanced ath-
letic program. He said that the
academy has an intercollegiate
schedule in football, baseball, boxing,
basketball, swimming, cross-country
and rifle. Intramural sports include
all of these and rowing and soccer.
When the cadet is appointed, he
is given all the clothes necessary. Not
only is he given work suits, but also
dress uniforms, including patent'

leather shoes. He is paid $780 as an

nishes scientific and engineering
courses. The school has complete fa-

Courses in seamanship and drills
u are interspersed with the usual sub-
jects of languages, history, electricity
and engineering, the dispatch stated.
, Each cadet must sign an agree-
ment with the United States Secre-
tary of the Treasury, under whose
t control the service is, that he is not

course, he will spend at least three

level, for in that year, he stressed,
production was not normal but sub-
ject to the hectic pace of a boom
period which ultimately plunged the
United States into the depression.
Over a long period of time, Profes-
sor Ellis asserted, technological im-
provements, which tend to lower
money wages and raise real wages,
will afford the laboring class two al-
ternatives: taking out the increases
in production and thereby raising the
standard of living, or converting the
gains into leisure and thereby re-
ducing the hours of labor. "The
gains thus far," Professor Ellis ob-
served, "have been split between two
I courses."
With great increases in population,
however, as is the case in several au-
thoritarian states of Europe, Pro-
fessor Ellis pointed out, the tendency
is for the standard of living to re-
main the same with the increases in
production taken out by the multiply-
ing population.
The phenomenon of the necessity
of a 20 per cent increase in produc-
tion over 1929 to approach the 1929
' level of unemployment, it was em-
phasized, is in perfect accordance
with normal development during de-
pressions. "Technological improve-
ments are not utilized in boom times,"
Professor Ellis indicated, "but rather
in depressions when the time cal be
taken to introduce new machinery,
and when bankruptcies force the util-
ization of the best and most efficient
methods of production."

Beautification
Drive Started
In Ann Arbor.
Purpose Is Improvement
Of City Appearance For
University Centennial
A community movement for the
further beautification of Ann Arbor
and its vicinity for the centennial of
the University in June was started
yesterday by the Ann Arbor News and
the Ann Arbor Garden Club.
In a front page article, the News
said that it hoped to enlist every Ann
Arbor resident in the movement.
A survey taken by the News re-
vealed that, although many local
persons had made outstanding con-
tributions to the charm of the city
through the improvement of their
homes, many other residents had
been neutral and lukewarm in the
embellishment of their home sur-
roundings. The survey goes on to
point out there are many people
-having a part in Ann Arbor life who
are not even neutral in the matter of
making this a particularly pleasant
city in which to live.
The present movement seeks to en-
courage those who are beautifying
their parts of Ann Arbor to even
greater accomplishments and to
gain the help and cooperation of the
present "neutrals" and those notrin-
terested in making Ann Arbor a
beautiful city.
A number of trophies are being
offered those who make distinctive
contributions to improve Ann Ar-
bor. There will be several classes of
awards that are being worked out
by the Garden Club Community
Beautification committee consisting
of Prof. Wells Bennett of the archi-
tecture school, chairman, Mrs. Paul
Leidy, Mrs. A. S. Whitney, E. A.
Gallup, Prof. H. 0. Whittemore of
the architecture school. Mrs. H. H.
Higbie, Mrs. Raleigh Schorling, Mrs.
C. C. Meloche, Mrs. William Giefel,
Mrs. C. H. McKinley and Mrs. John
Brumm.
Definite Plan
For Fish Unit
Is Announced
A definite program for the recently
established University cooperative
unit for fish management was an-
nounced yesterday by Prof. C. L.
Hubbs and Karl F. Lagler of the
Museum of Zoology. It will consist
of "an investigation into the means
of increasing the production of game
fishes by avoiding harmful preda-
tion both under hatchery and wild
conditions."
The project, sponsored mutually
by the University, by- the State De-
partment of Conservation and by the
American Wildlife Institute, will
show definite results within 12
months, Mr. Lagler estimated.
The program will be roughly di-
vided into two parts: that of deter-
mining just what animals do prey
upon fish and to what extent; and
that of administering methods of re-
ducing predation about hatcheries
and on lakes and streams, avoiding
the destruction of predators as in-
dividuals if possible.
"Although predatory animals have
ever conflicted withrfishermen's in-
terests, to date there has not been
sufficient evidence to prove conclu-
sively that any one species is habi-
tually predatory under natural con-
ditions," Mr. Lagler said.
"Indeed, with this being a uniquely
detailed and complete study of the
problem of predation related to fish-
eries, it is quite likely that many of

the ideas heretofore held on the sub-
ject .will be considerably revamped,
and the resuling concepts and prac-
tices will be based on new-found
facts, he said.E

Sigma Rho Ta Pledges
Tell 'Tung Oil' Benefits
The historic Sigma Rho Tau stump
became the center of a raucous gath-
ering yesterday as 60 pledges took
turns in explaining the benefits of
"tung oil," delivering tongue twist-
ing orations and selling cardboard
fish to the passers-by on the diagon-
al.
As each speaker ascended the
stump, heckled by actives, his trou-
ser legs were rolled up to his knees,
he was hold to voice his contentions
in tones that could be heard on the
eleventh floor of the hospital.
The formal initiation ceremonies
will be held at 8 p.m. today in the
Union, it was announced.

Horner said, there are, many pro-
ducts on the market that are harm-
ful to the teeth and gums despite the
extensive representations to the con-
trary.
Won't Stop Pink Toothbrush
Consumers Union said last October
that Pepsodent tooth paste was "ex-
cessively acid. There is some indica-
tion that this tooth paste may have
harmful solvent action on the tooth
enamel." Of Ipana, the organization
reported "Expensive. Will not pre-
vent or cure 'pinktoothbrush.' Any
benefit to the gums from brushing
will not be increased by the use of
Ipana or any other toothpaste." New
Pebeco contained potassium chlorate,
a poison, Consumers Union reported,
in a quantity sufficient to prove
harmful.
The Kolynos Co. is before the Fed-
eral Trade Commission at the present
time, facing charges of unfair com-
petition in selling. The complaint
served by the commission charges
that many of the representations
contained in Kolynos' advertising are
"misleading and untrue, and that its
toothpaste does not have the quali-
ties or achieve the results claimed."
Contain CarbeicAcid
Hand lotion research was reported
by Consumers Union early this year.
It found that four lotions, three of
them bearing the Seal of Approval of
the Good Housekeeping Bureau, con-
tained carbolic acid, which "exposes,
the user of the lotion to a serious
hazard, particularly if the hands are
covered by tight gloves after the lo-
tion is applied. Carbolic acid can be
absorbed even through the unbroken
skin, to produce general systemic dis-
turbances. Even more immediate is
the danger of severe eczema, which
can be produced at the sight of
application." The lotions containing
carbolic acid were, according to Con-
sumers Union, Woodbury's Almond-
Rose Cream, Jergens, Hess Witch
Hazel Cream and Nepto.
A merchandizing trick that de-
serves mention was that which Wood-
bury's employed, according to Con-
sumers Union. The company sold a
5.1 ounce bottle at 50 cents and a
bottle that had a one ounce label,
but which actually contained two
ounces, for 10 cents, the report said.
