cation also contains suggestions for
extra-curricular activties and some
factual research on German literary,
and linguistic subjects.

The Joint Distribution Committee,
one of the three organizations com-
bined in the United Jewish Appeal
drive, is the largest American agency

Lithuania and Latvia.
The program of the Joint Distribu-

the following activities:
Retraining Jewish professional and
business men and women, deprived
of the chance to earn a living in those
fields, to become farmers, and crafts-
men in new countries.

In the "The Art of Listening to Mu-
sic," opening lecture of the Music
and Art Series, Prof. Glenn D. Mc-
Geoch of the Music School stressed
that the basis of musical apprecia-
tion is based on the false assumption
that music must depend on the other
arts for support. Before it can take
a legitimate place as an academic
subject, he added, music must be rid
of this attitude.
Brumni Talks On Ibsen
This false assumption has been
prevalent throughout the history of
music, he observed, until in the 19th
century Eduard Hanslick restated the
problem of musical esthetics and
clarified the independent and auto-
nomous position of music among the

Brumm of the journalism depart-

of the Literature Series, that Ibsen

scientific era, Professor Brumm add-
ed, and had a profound effect on the
writers who followed him.

Camp Also Used As Base
In Geology Field Work;
72 Will Take Courses
Illustrative of the modern trend in
educational methods toward giving
practical experience in actual field
work is Camp Davis, the University
summer surveying camp near Jack-
son, Wyo.
Camp Davis is ideally situated both
for a surveying camp and for its re-
cently acquired function as a base
camp for geology field work. The
broad valley floor of Jackson's Hole,
its, numerous lakes and streams, and
the towering Teton Range over-look-
ing the camp provide enough varia-
tion of landscape to give the prospec-
tive surveyor a working knowledge of
any type of terrain that he may meet
in his future work.
Michigan pioneered ir1 the estab-
lishmen and manitenance of a camp
for summer field work. Camp Davis
was organized in 1874 under the sup-
ervision of the late Prof. J. B. Davis.
Scandinavian Club
Holds Picnic Today,
Dancing, games and a weiner roast
at the Island are planned for the
last regular meeting of the Scandin-
avian Club which will start at 8 p.m.
today in Lane Hall. All Scandinavian
students and their friends, especially
those who wish to join the group next
season are invited to attend.
A selected group of Norwegian folk
songs by Odin Anderson will be
featured at a banquet sponsored by
the club May 12, and a picnic May
19 will climax the year's activities.
Folk-dancing, travel talks, motion
pictures, games and discussions have
highlighted previous meetings which
were always characterized by their
old country hospitality.

The camp occupied several sites in
Michigan until 1929 when the Univer-
sity purchased a tract -of land in
Jackson's Hole. Wyo.
Camp Davis is located in the valley
of the Hoback River 75 miles south
of Yellowstone National Park. The
camp itself is situated on the flat
valley floor, but to either side rise
the towering peaks of the Hoback and
Grand Teton mountains. The build-
ings of the camp itself are construct-
ed of sheet iron with concrete floor-
ing. The water supply is brought to
the camp by gravity from a small
mountain stream south of the camp
Thirty-six students, 20 surveyors
and 16 geologists, will take courses
there this summer, Prof. H. Bouchard
of the department of geodesy and
surveying director of Camp Davis,
announced yesterday.

Art will contribute to a loan exhibi-
