State Farmers
Welcome Soil
Cooperative Conservation
Trials In Gran'd Haven
Reported By Ramsdell
Dune Action Probed
The most recent experiment in soil
conservation in "Michigan, a coopera-
tive'experiment being conductedrat
Grand Haven, was reported as being
well received by the farmers of the
surrounding territory, by Prof. W,.
F. Ramsdell of the forestry school
after a trip to the location.
The Grand Ha'en activity, accord-
ing to Professor Ramsdell, consists of
the work of seven townships on the
Lake Michigan shore in cooperation
with themselves and agents of the
Federal Soil Conservation Service to
find a solution to the destructive ac-
tion of sand dunes which are burying
valuable farm property.
The novelty of the experiment is,
the fact that most of the actual work
and directors for the work are furn-
ished by the farmers and owners of
the territory, contrasting the usual
custom of the Cgnservation Service
of carrying on this work without out-
side cooperation.
Professor Ramsdell, Dean S. T.
Dana and Prof. L. J. Young also of
the forestry school and Prof. I. D.;
Scott of the geology department re-j
turned yesterday from an invitation-
al trip to the Grand Haven region.
The trip was made, Professor Rams-
dell said, at the request of the experts
in charge to give additional informa-
tion on the needs for the project.,
The most pressing problem is to
find a means of retarding or stop-
ping the movements of dunes blown
in from Lake Michigan. The advice
given by the Uiversit men, accord-
ing to Ramsdel was the planting of'
some type of pine tree such as Jack
pine or Scotch pine which is adapted
to existing conditions. The advan-
tage that such a practice has over
the usual custom of planting dune
grasses is that the trees form a po-
tential resource in themselves for
future use.
A second cooperative station is be-
ing set up near Muskegon, also on the
lake. There are two other soil con-'
servation stations in the state, but
these are maintained by the Conser-
vation Service alone, and are used
chiefly for demonstration purposes.
Marley To Talk On Radio
The Rev. Harold P. Marley, of the
Unitarian church, will speak on,
"Coughlin and the Cross," Monday,
the third in a series of anti-Cough-]
lin radio talks over CKLW under the
auspices of the American League for
Peace and Democracy. Rockwell
Kent, noted artist will give the sec-

Dean Training
Course Success
Syracuse Graduates Hold
Positions As Heads
A unique course that has proved
successful at Syracuse University
trains women students to be deans.
To complement the work done in a
personnel course for women, students
are given full responsibility as head
residents of cottages housing from 11
to 40 women.
The course consists of class work in
personnel management and a two-
year "interneship" as a student dean.
Started eight years ago with an en-
rollment of 12, the course is now
training 34 students.
Included among graduates of the
course are the deans of women at
Lawrence College, Judson College,
state teachers colleges in Pensyl-
vania and Arkansas, the assistant
dean at the University of Illinois and
officials in many smaller colleges and
high schools.
For her work, the student dean re-
ceives from $600 to $800 to cover all
expenses while enrolled in the per-j
sonnel course. Upon completion of the
two-year course of study and interne-
ship the student receives the Mas-
ter's Degree.
New Specimens Bring
Spring To Museums1
Spring has officially arrived at thei
Museums. Dr. Norman E. Hartweg re-E
turned from a field trip in Monroei
county with three frogs, one leopard1
frog and two spring peepers. The
peepers have a high shill note and
the leopard frog a rather soft con-
tralto. Together they have been sing-
ing a chorus, seemingly unaware thatq
they were not brought to the MuseumE
to sing to the staff but to serve as
laboratory specimens.

Work Camps Present Study
Of Social Economic Problems

Work Camps have been attracting
large numbers of students in recent
years by providing opportunities to
live, work, and study during the sum-
mer, those areas of America that are
facing major economic readjust-
One group of these camps, spon-
sored by the American Friends Serv-
ice Committee, is sending its repre-
sentative, A. Elmore Jackson, to in-
terview applicants here for enroll-
ment on April 19. Mr. Jackson who
is in charge of all Friends Work
Camps, makes a tour of colleges and
universities each year to select the
best qualified students.
Camps Are Scattered
The Friends Work Camps are at
present located in six key positions:
in the TVA project, the Michigan
gutomobile plants, the Pennsylvania
coal fields, the Georgia hill country,
the California harbor area and in the
Mississippi Delta area. Each camp
participates in some new experiment
in community reconstruction.
During the past five years, 20 dif-
ferent Work Camps groups have been
active on major social problems. The
exploration is especially valuable be-
cause it is carried out in a setting of
communal living that has been to
many students a significant exper-
ience in life. It requires, however, a
desire to live on * cooperative basis,
to work hard, to impose self-disci-
pline as a member of a democratic
unit, and to study closely and sympa-
thetically difficult social and econ-
omic problems.
Michigan Camp In Flint
The camp in Michigan is located
in Flint, the center of two large au-
tomobile factories. Here, the project
is to develop recreational facilities
and to discuss with leaders of manu-
facturing and labor groups, the prob-
lems of production, distribution, and
labor relations.
The Pennsylvania project is locat-
ed in Penn-Craft, a new rehabilita-
tion community recently started by
the American Friends Committee.
Working in the heart of the coal
fields, a thorough study of the bitu-l
minous coal industry is possible.

Problems of displacement of labor,
mechanization, and union organiza-
tion are of major concern.
The TVA camp, located near Chat-
tanooga, Tenn., works on flood and
erosion control jobs. Problems in
this district center around low-cost
power development and conservation
of natural resources. In Georgia, a
similar project is under way, con-
structing power dams and irrigation-
al terraces, and working is coopera-
tive factories. -
Campers Work On Delta
Drainage systems and building
construction occupy the time of
Campers in the Mississippi Delta area.
In connection with this work, prob-
lems of cotton production, soil deple-
tion, labor displacement, and the pos-
sible effects of the mechanical cot-
ton-picker are discussed.
California,- with its tremendous
shipping industry, provides oppor-
tunities for work in ports. The camp
project is focused in community im-
provement and social service.
Syracuse Women
Use Guile On Mn
To Marry In 1918
Michigan coeds who are concerned
about the safety of their hypothetical
husbands in case of a hypothetical
war might follow the example of some
of the designing women who attend-
ed Syracuse University in 1918. A
pledge, signed by more than 35 wom-
en, was found in a wastebasket. It
reads as follows:
WHEREAS, We believethat the
educated men will have the greatest
part in the reconstruction period and,
become the leaders of the nation; and
WHEREAS, Syracuse University
has enrolled many men who are eli-'
gible and who are becoming educated,
RESOLVED, That we, the under-
signed, will do all in our power, using'
all the tricks and artifices known to
women, to secure a Syracuse man
who wlil agree to marry us.

Following are the short biographi-
cal sketches of the candidates for the
Board of Regents:
Republican-Harry G. Kipke en-
tered here from Lansing, where he
had a brilliant high school, athletic
career, winning 13 letters. At Michi-
gan he became the University's first
9-letter man, and was chosen on
Walter Camp's All-American in 1922
After his graduation in 1924, he
served as assistant coach of football
and baseball at the University of
Missouri and Michigan., In-1928 he

gan State, coming back to Michigan
to hold the same position the follow-
ing frill. His teams won three nation-
al titles before his ouster came in
1937. Since then he has been asso-
ciated with a Detroit motor company
and the Detroit Lions, professional
football team.

Democratic-Charles Lockwood was
born in South Lyon, Mich., and was
graduated from the University in
1914 with an A.B. degree. He served

of Law, where he taught for 10 years.
He was appointed to the NRA Con-
sumers' Advisoy Council, and in that
capacity furnished information which
enabled city officials to break the
Detroit milk trust. He is an officer
of the Detroit chapter of the Nation-
al Lawyers' Guild. He is supported
in this campaign by Labor's Non
Partisan League.
Active As Alumnus
Democratic-Dr. Dean W. Myers
was graduated from the Medical
School in 1899. In 1907 he became
a professor, here, retaining this po-
sition until 1922 when he resigned
to reenter private practice. He has
been extremely prominent, in medical
affairs, having been twice a member
of the American College of Surgeons'
Board of Governors, as well as repre-
senting the Washtenaw County
Medical Society in the Michigan State
Medical Society's house of delegates.

1894. After his graduation from
Lafayette College in Indiana, he re-
ceived his law degree in the Univer-
sity Law School in 1917, and since
has been active in alumni affairs.
He served overseas for two years, and
attained the rank of second lieuten-
ant. During the years 1925-26 he
was state commander of the Ameri-
caA Legion in Michigan. He is now a
member of a law firm in Manistique,
and is also engaged in fraternal af-
fairs, affiliated with the Rotarians,
the Masons and the Elks.

Microfilm Cuts
Publishing Cost
For Graduates
New Process Photographs
Theses For Reference
In Punhic Libraries
The process of publication of doc-
toral theses has been revolutionized
by the introduction of a new tech-
nique whichsubstitutes the camera
for the printing press, and which has
recently been accepted by the Univer-
This new process, whereby each
page of the thesis is photographed
and recorded on a 35 millimeter film,
is much less expensive than the old
method of printing in pamphlet or
book form. Michigan is the first
university to adopt the microfilm
Formerly, the requirement for pub-
lication in printed form of all doc-
torates ran to a considerable cost,
since sale on such publications is
ordinarily sharply limited, making
the cost of printing per unit very
high. A survey recently made shows
that in general 'only one-third to
one-half the edition of the average
doctor's thesis is sold. This undis-
tributed ,one-half represents an in-
vestment of the total funds of schol-
arship which can not be recovered.
In the microfilm process one copy can
be produced as inexpensively as sev-
eral dozen copies printed at one time.
Eugene B. Power, '27, owner of
University Microfilms, which special-
izes in this work, explained the meth-
od by which these will be published.
First a student submits his thesis in
typewritten form which will be pho-
tographed and the negative on file
for reference in the form of a roll of
film. Abstracts of the thesis with
catalog cards for each title will be
distributed _ to libraries throughout
the country. When a scholar, after
consulting the abstract, wishes to
use a manuscript in research, a film
copy to fit the standard reading ma-
chine will be made on demand. Cost
of these duplicate films is one and
one-fourth cents per page.
The total cost will be $15 which in-
cludes filming of the manuscript in
addition to printing and distributing
the abstracts and catalog cards. This
new plan will result in marked sav-
ings for graduate students.
