That Health Service
Stay Offers Latest
In Aids To Comfort
You don't have to worry about your
pyjamas, your textbooks or your girl
anymore now when you're temporar-
ily confined within the white, white
walls of the Health Service.
Volunteer workers will go to your
home and get the necessities you for-
got to gather together when you
dragged yourself down to the Health
Service to see what could be done
to make the old machine tick right
again-and found you were in for
an unexpected stay.
Yes, and the volunteers will call
the girl friend and your roommate
to let them know where you disap-
peared to so suddenly.
The bringers of good cheer belong
to the Health Service Visitation, or-
gan of The Association, and they pay
daily visits to the Health Service be-
tween 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to administer
to the wants of student patients.
Most frequent requests are for cig-
arettes, Daniel B. Sints, men's chair-
man of the Service said. Preferred
reading material are wild west stories,
Life and Colliers.

tations and in face of many seeming-
ly insurmountable difficulties, ac-}
cording to St. John Cathpool, Execu-
tive Secretary of the Youth Hostel
Association of England and Wales,
who spoke yesterday at a round table
discussion group on hostels in Eng-
land and the northern European
countries, where the Association is
very strong.
In England and Wales, there areI
nearly 400 hostels which have been
visited this year by over 500,000 mem-
bers. They are placed from 8 to 15
miles apart and constitute a con-
tinuous chain which covers the whole
The movement as organized there,
Catchpool said, is primarily a physicalI
and mental health movement. Mem-
bership is obtained by payment of $1
per year for those under 25 years of
age and $2 for those over 25. This
entitles one to the use and priveleges
of the hostels in any country in the
world where they are organized.
A night's shelter, consisting of a
good bed and blankets, may be ob-
tained everywhere for 25 cents and1
meals may be had for aboutthe same
price. Once built or obtained, a hos-
tel is almost always self-supporting,.
depending on its location and amount
of use, Catchpool stated.
Each hostel is in the charge of a
House Father and Mother who live in
it, and handle all details of its op-
eration. There are separate quarters
for both men and women, he said, al-
though the individual hostels vary
from old chateaux or historic build-
ings of great age to several which are
under construction as a result of a
Student Surveys River
For Future Excavation
George Quimby, graduate student
in the Museum of Anthropology,
spent last summer making an arch-
eological survey of the St. Joseph
River valley in western Michigan,
preceding actual excavation work
which may be undertaken by the
University at a later date.
By studying historic and prehis-
toric cultures, mapping sites, and
making collections from the surface,
Quimby gained a preliminary picture
of the archeological possibilities of
the region which will be of use in
planning the excavations.
Charlie Zwick
Now Playing at the
Michigan League

The great success of the movement
in England has prompted an organi-
zation in the United States to become
active, Catchpool stated, and they
now have headquarters in Northfield,
Mass., under the able direction of Mr.
and Mrs. Monroe Smith. The Michi-
gan unit has headquarters in Ann
Arbor, and already has a series from,
here to Lake Michigan and back
through picturesque countryside.
Catchpool is in America to stimu-
late and advise the movement. He
said that the greatly increasing group
use of the system in England has
proven its real value along both body
and mind-building lines. He said
that there is a strong tendency there
to include in the curriculum of the
elementary public school system of
England a compulsory series of trips,
using the Hostel Association facili-
In England, he said, the Govern-
ment has cooperated a great deal on
such matters as taxation, roads and
the international aspect of the Asso-
ciation. In the United States, he
claimed, the railroads have recently
shown a desire to help out with the
greatproblem of distance with which
American hostels have to contend.

Curator Leaves
Indian Remains
Volney H. Jones. assistant curator
in the Division of Ethnology of the
Museum of Anthropology, left Mon-
day for a five weeks field trip in
northeastern Arizona.
Jones intends to study the former
agricultural conditions existing in the
neighborhood of the large ruins of
Awatobi. He will investigate the
crops and fields of the Hopis of the
region and gain as much information
as possible concerning the agriculture
of prehistoric and historic times.
Jones hopes to identify the ancient
fields which were cultivated when the
ruin was occupied and to translate
the present yield into ancient terms.
On this project the University is
cooperating with a group from the
Peabody Museum of Harvard Univer-
sity under the direction of Mr. J. O.
Brew. The work being undertaken
this year is a continuation of a study
made last year by the same group of
the 17th century church at the ruins
of Awatobi.
