Congo-Ann Arbor 'Hams' Meet

Two men who had never before
seen each other, although they hadl
carried on lengthy conversations for
more than six years and correspond-
ed regularly over the same period,
met for the first time yesterday after-
noon when the Rev. Carroll R. Steg-
all, Presbyterian missionary from the
Belgian Congo, arrived in Ann Arbor
to visit Dr. John Kraus, son of Dean
Edward H. Kraus of the literary col-
Friendship Via Ether
This strange friendship, although'
not so strange among the amateur
radio "hams," began one day in the
fall of 1933 when Dr. Kraus, operat-
ing station WSJK, answered an un-
usual telegraph signal and found it
to come from ON4CSL, located at
Lubondai, Belgian Congo, Afria.
Since that time Reverend Stegall's
call letters have been changed to
Reverend Stegall is a native of
Chattanooga, Tenn.. and is a gradu-

ate of Georgia Tech. In 1915 he was
sent to the Congo and was impressed
by the great length of time it took
for communications to reach the out-
side world, one way mail service to
this country, over 7,000 miles, tak-
ing from six to eight weeks. From
Lubondai to the coast was a 14 day
journey. He began to consider radio
as a means of communication.
Natives Rub Elbows
In 1923 he set up his first receiver
in the jungle, and the Bakete natives
crowded around. All he could hear
on the set was static. He put the ear-
phones on the head of the most in-
telligeit native, who looked at him
in surprise and exclaimed, "I thought
you said the Great War in Europe
was over!"
In 1925, while in this country on
sick leave, he learned the techni-
calities of radio from an acquaint-
ance who had been a radio operator
in the navy. On his return he was able
to set up a successful station.

German Club
To Offer Play
Post-War German Farce
Set ForApril 24
The cast for the annual German
play, "Die Gegenkandidaten," is busi-
ly rehearsing for its presentation on;
April 24, according to Dr. Otto G.
Graf of the German department who
is directing the play.
The Deutscher Verein, in putting
on "Die Gegenkandidaten," will be
presenting its fifth annual play since
it reestablished the presentation of a
drama as a club project in 1934. Be-
fore the World War, Dr. Graf said,
the club had a great number of dra-
matic successes.
"Die Gegenkandidaten," by Lud-
wig Fulda, is a comedy which reflects
the political confusion of the im-
mediate post-war period in Germany,
Dr. Graf said.


Wood Scores
Plan To Slice
Relief Funds
The proposal to slice one and a
half million dollars from WPA ap-
propriations, already passed by the
House and on the calendar of the
Senate, will put a severe burden on
local relief agencies and small com-
munities, Prof. Arthur E. Wood of
the sociology department pointed out
The WPA by its work program has
kept unemployed from being "un-
employable," Professor Wood de-
clared. These men will not be sud-
denly absorbed by business, he said,
but will be forced to local relief agen-
cies. This will mean immediate de-
creases in relief given to those now on
the rolls and the complete exclusion
of some people now on federal relief
rolls, 'Professor Wood said. It will
also cause a reduced standard of
living in the entire community, he
pointed out.
Other members of the sociology de-
partment emphasized the psychologi-
cal effect of the new economy move.
The stigma of direct relief is much
greater than work relief, they point-'
ed out. Outright doles will have a de-
moralizing effect upon the men, their
families and the community, it was
Local relief negates the attempt of
the WPA to keep unemployed men fit
to take up private employment at
any time, psychologists and sociolo-
gists pointed out.
Wolverine Parties
Feature Dancing
Since the Wolverine, cooperative
cafeteria, has innaugurated its policy
of weekly open houses, Sunday nights
have found the usual masculine hub-
bub replaced by swing music and
dancing couples.
Informal supper dances are held
each Sunday from 6 to 9 p.m. From
six to seven classical music is played
and for the remainder of the evening
popular music is played for dancing.
More than a hundred people have
attended the socials for the past two
weeks and according to John Scheibe,
'42M, president, they are a decided
success. The open houses are being
held to acquaint the campus with the

Stressing the need for revamping
educational methods outmoded by a
changing society, Dr. A. H. Edgerton,
Director of Vocational Guidance at
the University of Wisconsin, called on
guidance counsellors to help students
make the adjustments necessary for
the "swift changes and reorientations
of the "'30's" at yesterday's banquet.
Technological change and growing
industrialization have placed a pre-
mium on adaptability and versatility,
he declared. Inflexibility in educa-
tional methods, he said, is blocking
the type of education necessary ,to
enable students to make these vital
Extra-Curricular Work
Seventy-nine per cent of failures
are due not to lack or skill or knowl-
edge but to "inability to get along
with people," he emphasized.
Debating, dramatics, music train-
ing and special radio courses are
among the advantages the University
has to offer to students desiring to
enter the radio field, Joseph Ries,
Director of the Nation's School of the
Air, WLW, Cincinnati, said in the ra-
dio section.
For students interested in entering
the announcing, dramatic and sing-
ing end of the business, Mr. Ries
prescribed a good musical back-
ground. For those desirous of enter-
ing the writing part of the business,
the need for recognition of the sounds
meaning was stressed.
