E. W. Blakeman Praises
Activity Of Sessions;
Inaugurated In 1931
By MALCOLM E. LONG
Beginning in 1931, the' annual
Spring Parley of the University has
provided an active section for student
discussion, Dr. Edward W. Blake-
man, faculty sponsor and adviser to
the Parley, said today. This year's
sessions will be held on Friday, Satur-
day and Sunday this week in the
Union. -
The first Parley featured President
Ruthven, Rabbi Leo Franklin of Con-
gregation Beth-El in Detroit, nine
local 'clergymen, six faculty members
and three well known religious auth-
orities as leaders of the round table
discussion. There were no regular
speeches and no specified topics. The
leaders initiated the discussion, which
was intended to run along religious
lines.
The second Parley was on "Person-
al Philosophies," with a faculty panel
of 17 persons and a student commit-
tee of 110 members. A special com-
mittee of students had made plans
an entire semester in consultaion
with faculty members and students
leaders to draw up plans for the Par-
ley. The present conferences are still
conducted along these same lines.
The third Parley on "What Con-
Camp Positions
Beingilled
Work Groups Are Located
In Six Key, Regions
Positions in Work Camps sponsored
by the Friends Service Committee will
be filled by application to Mr. Elmore
Jackson, who will be at Lane Hall
this afternoon.
The Work Camps are located in six
key positions in the United States, in
the areas where major economic and
social readjustment is taking place.
The Michigan camp is in Flint. and
is devoted to a study of the prob-
lems surrounding the automotive in-
dustry. Other camps are located in
the TVA area, the California ship-
ping center, the- Pennsylvania coal
district, the Georgia cotton planta-
tions and in the Mississippi Delta
region.
Mr. Jackson has been in charge of
the Quaker Work Camps for several
years and has been especially success-
ful in bringing together the leaders of
local industry and labor leaders for
discussions at the Camps.
Camp life is designed to provide
opportunities to study local commun-
ity problems, to engage in active
physical labor on a constructive pro-
ject and to live in a community where
the cooperative spirit is realized in
group living.
University students have been active
id" th'sc Canms ifr 'eeit yeai's and
have been enthusiastic in their praise
of the unique opportunities offered
in camp..

were $12,625,000.
5. Fuller, in 32 years, has spent millions of dollars in advertising -
Fuller dealers cash in on this. Ask your neighbor's opinion of Fuller

millions of homes. Appointment system.
8. Fuller men daily receive orders from over 50% of their calls.
9. "As long as there is dust and dirt, brushes are needed."
