Asia with a total expense of $200 is
the ecord of Thomas Lawson, Uni-
versity of Minnesota sophomore, -who

Mistaken for a Spanish refugee in

pleted a trip that had been his life-
long ambition.

was young and left Minnesota for
Antwerp two years ago. He went to
England, Scotland, Holland, Belgium,
France, Germany, Scandinavia, the
Baltic countries, Algiers and Tunisia.
He traveled through Canada and
much of the United States. He went
by boat, automobile, and bicycle.
He visited many European universi-

Stockholm. He was in nothern Europe
during the Czechoslovakia crisis, he

Walter Huston
S ays Theatre
Is Still 'Secure
"Television offers no serious threat
to the popularity of the theatre,"
Walter Huston, veteran stage and
screen favorite, said last Wednesday
in an interview in Detroit.
Mr. Huston, who is playing Peter
Stuyvesant in a road production of
last year's stage success, "Knicker-
bocker Holiday," said that theatre
performances were never better at-
tended than now. In this play he
wears an elaborate harness Uo sup-
port his right leg, in character with .
Stuyvesant, who was peg-legged.
Huston, who achieved his greatest
popularity in the stage and screen
versions of "Dodsworth," "Gabriel
Over the White House," and "Abra-
ham Lincoln," said that he may go
back to motion pictures but not "just
for the money." The movies are too
much interested in the financial as-
pect to see the artistic side of acting,
he declared, citing as an example the'
featuring of Ruth Chatterton in the
screen version of "Dodsworth" in
preference to Fay Bainter, who played
the role in the original play.
When he closes the road run of
"Knickerbocker Holiday," Huston will
return to New York to feature in a
stage representation of Arthur Train's
character, Mr. Tutt.
Special Allotment
iveii To Sehool
LANSING, April 18. -)- A
$2,500,000 school aid allotment, now
approved by the Governor, will "see
the schools through this year," Dr.
Eugene B. Elliott, superintendent of
public instruction, said today.
Although the money will not be
available until July 1, it is to be con-
sidered as an' advance upon next
year's appropriation, Dr. Elliott said
he was confident none of the finan-
cially-distressed school districts would
have to close.
Rep. John P. Espie, chairman of the
house ways and means committee,
said his committee had set aside $37,-
000,000 as the tentative allocation for
schools next year. He said he was un-
certain whether the $2,500,000 would
be deducted from that amount.
