Officials disclosed today that the
WPA was using funds already or

jobs at the rate of approximately 30,-
000 a week.
If Congress finally approves the

spending bill now carries for WPA
they said, they expect an average of1
2,800,000 persons to be given work re-
lief employment in the next sever
months. This could compare with
an enrollment of 2,679,656 on May 28
and an officially-expected winter
pea1t of 3,000,000 or more.
Most of the additional jobs pro-
vided since May 28, it was said, were
in large industrial communities where
the unemployment situation was
most acute.
Secretary' of Agriculture Henry A
Wallace also has taken steps to put
the 4dministration's relief program
into effect without waiting for Con-
gress to finish action on the big lend-
ing-spending bill.
' He directed the Federal Surplus
Commodities Corporation yesterday

This type of .relief will be tem-
porary, it was declared, and will be
concentrated in distressed commu-
nities typified recently by Chicago

In the interests of science, two

Hemmed in by canyon walls which
at times will stretch a mile above

tor in 'the botany department, and
Miss Lois Jotter, Grad., an assistant
in the same department, will face

Dorothy Sands' one-woman show,

Ann Arbor appearance at 8 p.m. to-
day in the Lydia Mendelssohn
"Styles in Acting" is the enacted
story of the English and American'
theatre from the time of the Renais-
sance when women were first permit-
ted to appear on the stage down to
the present. Miss Sands demonstrates
how the great actresses of all time
have costumed and played their most
famous roles. She will show the
styles in costuming, theatres, audi-
ences and acting in the various
The program consists of "Milla-
mant" in "The Way of the World" by
William Congreve, "Almahilde" in
"The Conquest of Granada" by John
Dryden, "Madame Vestris" in the
song "Buy A Broom," "Nellie Hatha-

gically although it has been visited
by several geological expeditions.
Because earlier groups found heavy
boats more easily destroyed, the in-
trepid seven will embark at Green
River, Utah, in three 15-foot boats
especially constructed for the jour-
ney. These have five-foot water-
tight compartments at each end for
food, equipment and specimans. In
the center is a five-foot "cock-pit"
for passengers.
By early warnings, one-way radio
transmission will safe-guard the
group from swirling masses of flood
water which sometimes sweeps down
the canyons, boxing up and smash-
ing boats which may be in their path.
When rapids must be shot, the ex-
pedtion's craft will go stern first
with orasman rowing as hard as they
can against the current. Sterns are
especially designed to ride over rocks
and obstructions.
Whenever possible and necessary,
boats will be portaged or "lined"
around rapids. The latter is accom-
plished by attaching ropes to the
boats and "lowering" the craft from
shore. However, many of the worst
rapids can't be lined because of tow-
ering rock walls bordering the water.
8upplies will be replenished at Lee's
Ferry, Ariz., and at Bright Angel trail
in, theGrand Canyon.
The journey is being undertaken
because a pack trip originally plan-
ned by Dr. Clover was not possible
due to the lack of feed for pack ani-

City Suffers Sixth Air Raid
In Eight Days; Foreign
Protests Terined Futile
CANTON, June 4.-,4P)-Japanese
air raiders continued their heavy
bombings of this industrial city today
with two devastating attacks.;
Officials feared casualties would ex-
ceed .those of a week ago. when they
estimated 750 persons were killed and
1,350 wounded.
Today's raids marked the sixth day
of attacks on Canton in the last eight
days. Only on Wednesday and Thurs-
day were there respites.
(In Tokyo, Domei, Japanese News
Agency, said a "well-informed source"
-the usual designation for official
opinion-indicated British and Amer-
ican denunciations of air attacks on
civilians would not alter Japanese
About 40 warplanes took part in the
first raid, appearing over the city
shortly after 10 a.m. and unloading
their expolsive cargoes for 35 minutes
before heavy clouds and rain ended
the attack.
Many persons were crushed be-
neath falling masonry when build-
ings were wrecked by three missiles
in Winghon Road, Canton's main
street. Saichuen, where electric
power and waterworks are situated,
also was bombed.-,
Hospitals were filled to overflow-
ing and doctors scarcely had time to
attend to one lot of wounded before
another arrived.
Sirens for the second raid sounded
while rescue work was in progress
for victims of the first. Thirty-five
planes swept over the city in the sec-
ond attack.

New Jersey Talk Stopped

'We Don't Want Reds'

HagueSpeech Ban
NEWARK, N.J., June 4.-(P)-So-
cialist Leader Norman Thomas was
showered with rotten egges and
howled down, tonight by 100 men,
most of them wearing veterans over-
seas caps, when he attempted to speak
at Military Park.
There were flurries of spectators'
fists and police nightsticks as friends
helped Thomas, his face smeared with
egg yolks, to a park bench.
A temporary stand erected for his
speech was splintered.
Others in the crowd of 500 Thom-
as sympathizers were hit with eggs.
As Thomas was introduced by Clara
Handelman, Essex County secretary
of the Socialist party, and stepped
forward to speak, shouting and flag-
waving veterans, accompanied by a
25-piece band, marched through the
Thomas crowd and a melee broke out.
Mounted policemen, patrolmen and
detectives helped Thomas supporters
form a protective circle around him.
The veterans marched a short dis-
tance away and then returned to the
ruins of the stand to listen to more
band music.
"We want Americanism-we don't
want Reds," the veterans shouted.
Standing on the bench, Thomas
raised his hand continually and
pleaded in vain to be allowed to
"I still. have my permit and I
would like to sayma few words," he
cried into the din.
More eggs and cucumbers were
thrown at him.
After a half hour, Deputy Police
Chief Phillip Sebold, one of those in
the circle guarding the former so-
cialist candidate f o r president,
jumped up beside him and an-
nounced: "On my advice this meet-
ing is disbanded."
Six mounted policemen surrounded
Thomas as he walked with friends to
socialist headquarters 400 yards
A delegation of representatives of
a number of veterans organizations
sought in vain today to have a city
permit for the Thomas meeting re-
scinded on the ground it would "in-

Student Attends
China Sends Tsu Ying-Hu
As Its Representative
Tsu Ying-Hu, graduate student in
the School of Education will repre-
sent the Chinese government at the
International Youth Conference to
be held Aug. 1 at Poughkeepsie, N.Y.,
for a nine-day period. Mr. Hu is a
principal of a Shanghai school, but
came here for graduate study in edu-
cation. He has translated several
works from English into Chinese,
among which are a work on elemen-
tary education, and a life of Baden-
Powell, noted Boy Scout leader.
The Conference will consist of dis-
cussions of international affairs by
delegations of youths from more

than 50 countries. The purpose of
the movement is to develop mutual
understanding between the youth of
different races, different religions,
and different opinions in the further-
ance of world peace.
Study and discussion will be con-
ducted under four main commissions,
"The Political Organization for
Peace," "The Economic Organiza-
tion for Peace," "The Economic and
Cultural Status of Youth and Its Re-
lations to Peace," and "The Ethical
and Philosophical Bases of Peace."

International interest aroused in

The primary motivation for the

which the cards appear in the deck,
and this procedure is repeated many
times before the test is considered
complete and accurate. If a person
attains a sufficiently high average
on a large number of decks it is con-
sidered highly probable that he pos-
sesses the telepathic quality.
The work in Ann Arbor, Dr. Gre-
ville explained, consists of conducting
these card tests in an effort to find
people exhibiting the telepathic fac-
ulty. The persons participating in
the work here are eager to have any
interested members of the faculty,
