Mrs. L. J. Carr To Direct
Hampstead Players
"Threshold," an original play writ-
ten for the Hampstead Players by
Mrs. George B. Brigham. will be
presented June 7 and 8 in the audi-
torium of the Jones School, Mrs.
Lowell J. Carr, its director, an-
nounced yesterday.
"The play," Mrs. Brigham said, "is
a realistic one vividly dramatizing
the crushing hopelessness of a Cali-
fornia family on relief. Its central
character is an industrial worker who
must seek government aid after his
poor health has forced him to give up
his job on the line."
"About three years ago, the Hamp-
stead Players broke away from the
civic theatre group, deciding to en-
act original plays or those which,
under ordinary circumstances would
never be produced," Prof. Lowell J.
Carr of the sociology department ex-
plained. The present work was chos-
en in keeping with this ideal, he said.
Future plans of the players include
three presentationshfor the summer
vacation, all to be shown in Professor
Carr's amphitheatre. The first, an
old French farce, the "History of
Master Peter Pathelin," translated
and adapted for the English Stage by
Harold Whitehall of the English de-
partment, will probably be given in
July, Professor Carr announced. Ad-

'Hail, Savage Spirit,' Greets
Missionary In New Guinea

"It's not very complimentary to be
greeted warmly as the returning
spirit of the great-grandfather of a
Papuan savage, but it often serves as
a good introduction.'"
That statement was made by the
Rev. Frederick Henkelmann, a Luth-
eran missionary, who had been work-
ing on the island of New Guinea, in
the South Sea, for the past eight
years among the most primitive
people known, some of whom are still
headhunters and cannibals.
In these dangerous surroundings
this introduction stood Mr. Henkel-
mann in good stead, he said, for the
superstitious natives believe that the,
few venturous white men who pene-
trate into the interior are tribal
spirits ,and they even see exact re-
semblances to their deceased ances-
Vast stretches of the interior of the
island have never been visited by
white men, but recent use has been
made of th airplane in the explora-
tion of this part of New Guinea, Mr.
Henkelman said.
He described the trip into the in-
terior as consisting of three weeks of
strenuous mountain climbing or a two
hour and 20 minute airplane flight.
During the gold rush of 1926, he
said, white men did not hesitate to
shoot natives, and consequently, the
Australian government placed a ban
on interior exploration. The ban,
however, has been recently lifted and
Mr. Henkelmann who has been study-
Appointment Plan
Declared 'Political'
LANSING, May 28.--VP)-A con-
troversial measure, described by op-
ponents as an attempt to make the
position of conservation director "po-
litical," reached the floor of the
House today, for debate next week.
The bill, submitted over the names
of 15 introducers, would make the
directors' office appointive by the gov-
ernor. The position now is filled by
the non-partisan conservation com-
mission. It was reported to the House
by the State Affairs Committee, with
recommendations that it be passed.
The House voted today to provide
staggered six-year terms in office for
members of the Mackinac Island State

mester, is returning to the South Seas
in July.
Anthropologists, prospectors and
missionaries, are the chief groups
which attempt to contact the savages,
according to Rev. Henkelmann.
Foot parties progressing into the'
interior must proceed single file
through unexplored jungles and over
almost inaccessible mountains, with
an advance detachment cutting a
trail through the dense tropical ver-
Rev. Henkelmann said that the
savages either flee or prepare to fight
on the approach of missionary expe-
ditions. He much prefers the latter
attitude,'he said, because it is then
possible to contact the natives by the
friendship signs of smiling, smoking,
and eating. The process of language
learning comes next and after that
the transmission of ideas, he ex-

Van Wagoner
Favors Road
WASHINGTON, May 28.-(A)-
State Highway Commissioner Murray
D. Van Wagoner of Michigan, said
today he and Governor Frank Murphy
were not opposed on the proposal to
set aside funds in the $1,500,000,000
relief bill for road building.
Representative Clare E. Hoffman,
(Rep., Mich.), said in the House
Thursday Van Wagoner was seeking
the allocation of $150,000,000 for ex-
penditure on highways through state
departments and Murphy "doesn't
want any of it earmarked."
"If the Governor doesn't want any
of the money earmarked for roads,
it's news to me," Van Wagoner said.
Van Wagoner several weeks ago
urged money be designated for roads.

version committee of the American

who is in charge of the documents
section of the Library announced yes-
One of the copies of this report,
Noyes said, so in deman all over
the world that a second printing was
necessary for the 1936 edition, will be
on display at the circulation desk of
the General Library, or available for
inspection there during the week of

The report, Noyes said, the first of
its kind to meet with such a great

the teaching profession and presents
an extremely clear picture of the
