Senate Returns
Bill To House
(Continued from Page 1)
curity board and that a threatened
temporary halt of governmental sub-
sidy had passed.I
The so-called supervisors' bloc in
the legislature consented to the bill,
which swept through the Senate, with
a :vote of 25 to 4, then through the
House, 75 to 13, with scarcely a show
of debate.
y The measure requires that the
-state contribute to each individual
county for welfare purposes an
amount not less than the sum that
county expended from its own funds
the preceding month.
It creates a new department of so-
cial welfare, one division of which
would administer funds appropriated
by the legislature, the other to allo-
cate to the counties money obtained
from the Federal government for old
age assistance and other benevolent
Within the counties would be creat-
ed three member welfare boards, two
members of which would be appoint-
ed by the county boards of supervis-
ors to administer programs financed
exclusively by state and local funds,
the third member to be appointed by
the state commission with authority
-to administer Federal subsidies.
The boards of supervisors have ab-
solute authority to hire and fire their
own appointees, however, and to ap-
~prove or adisapprove the appointment
of the county boards' staffs.
Rep. Ruth Thompson, Republican,
Muskegon, raised the only voice of
protest against the plan, declaring
she had information the Federal So-
cial Security board did not approve
of the dual setup. Rep. Fred Rodesi-
ler, Republican, Riga, replied that "if
we don't take it (the bill) we'll get
Foes of the measure have criticized
a $100,000 appropriation clause as a
"subterfuge" to save it from an initia-
tory referendum attack such as that
which invalidated a welfare reorgan-
'aiation act adopted in 1937.
The legislature adopted a bill to-
night declaring the ieutenant' Gov-
ernor a member of the State Admin-
istrative Board and granting him a
salary of $2,500 a year in addition to
.his legislative salary of three dollars
a day. The bill goes to the Governor
for his signature or veto.

Saving Of Squalus Crew Tests
New Undersea Rescue Devices

Towners And Gowners Recall Memories At Reunion

Members Of Submarine

Latest submarine rescue devices
developed by the Navy during the
past twelve years have received the
acid test this week in the rescue work
on the sunken submarine Squalus.
Spurred on by the famous accident
to the S-4 in 1927, inventors have
in the past decade suggested innum-
erable devices for aiding sunken sub-
marines. Many of these were discard-
ed as impractical, but several have
proved their worth under practice
Latest Rescue Device
One of the latest of the rescue
devices, and perhaps one of the safest
under most circumstances is the sub-
marine rescue diving bell which was

Business And Industry
Call 867_Registrants
Both business and education em-
ployment schedules. have increased
over last year, according to Dr. T.
Luther Purdom, director of the Uni-
versity Bureau of Occupational In-
formation and Vocational Guidance.
The Bureau's report for last year,
1937-38, listed 1,442 registrants in the
General Placement department. Of
this number 867 found positions
through the Bureau and other sources
or returned to school. While no sta-
tistics are yet available, Dr. Purdom
said, the number of calls from busi-
ness and industry have increased sig-
Navy Sends Condolences
WASHINGTON, May 25.-(A_)-The
Navy Department sent messages of
condolence today to the relatives of
the 26 men who died in the submarine

used so efficiently in the dramatic
Squalus rescue.
The bell, as the name implies, is a
heavy, steel bell-shaped chamber
with a water-tight hatchway at the
top and an air lock at the lower end.
In operation, the bell is lowered by
cable from the submarine rescue ship.
The. lower part of the air lock is
equipped with a heavy rubber gasket
which can be snugly fastened on top
of the hatch of a disabled under-sea
craft. Once secured, it is a relatively
simple task to gain access to the sub-
marine through the air lock.
Bell Finds Sunken -Craft
Perhaps the most difficult phase
of its operation is the task of finding
the sunken craft and of subsequently
guiding the bell to the hatchway.
The submarine must also be resting
>n an even keel before the apparatus
can be brought into play.
Most dangerous factor affecting
submarine rescue work is rough
weather. Stormy seas make surface
operations virtually impossible. It
was just such a series of adverse
weather conditions that were respon-
sible for the large loss of life in the
famous S-4 disaster in 1927. Under
similar rough sea conditions today,
the Momsen escape lung would be
Telephone Signal Buoy Helps
Another recently developed rescue
device that has proven its efficiency
in the present disaster is the tele-
phone signal buoy. This buoy canbe
released from the interior of the
stricken craft. Upon reaching the sur-
face of the sea, smoke signals, bombs
and flares are automatically released,
and telephone connections installed
in the buoy provide communications
between rescuers and the submarine.
Prof. Goudsmit Elected
To Academy Of Science
Prof. Samuel A. Goudsmit, of the
physics department, was recently
elected as a member of the Royal Aca-
demy of Sciences of the Netherlands.
Professor Goudsmit was nominated by
the members of the society and of-
ficially admitted into the academy by
Holland's Queen Wilhelmenia.

Time Of Exercise Time Of Examination

Songs which back in the gay old
'90's sounded nightly from the club-
rooms over Parker's Saloon down on
Main Street, were heard in Ann
Arbor again this year at a reunion
banquet of the "Town and Gown"
If Ann Arbor ever had a famous
club for the prominent townsmen
and faculty members, the Town and
Gown Club was it. Founded in 1890,
it was organized to fill a need for
closer comradeship between towns-
men and faculty members. It gradu-
ally grew in size until there were 15
Towners and 15 Gowners.
300 Alumni
The active membership list can
never exceed that number, but the
Club boasts of a roster of more than
300 alumni in all parts of the United
States. Vacancies usually occur when
faculty men leave Ann Arbor.
Initiation ceremonies Were short,
but effective. Following the "pipe of
peace" method, a gallon jug of beer
was passed from hand to mouth by
members, symbolizing the' cmenting
of friendship which characterized the
Club. Initiates were forced to drink
the rest of the liquid without remov-
ing the jug from their lips.
Club Entertains Celebrities
Designed as a lounging haven for
men only, the Club boasts that "not
one woman has crossed the thres-
hold." During the period of its active
existence before the United States
entered the War, the Town and Gown
Club gave yearly dinners for actives
and alumni. The Club entertained
such celebrities as the German am-
bassador to the United States, Sol

Smith Rusell, a well-known actor,
Robert Mantel and members of the
Boston Symphony Orchestra who
brought their instruments and played
for their suppers. As many as 30
guests were entertained on football
Inactive 20 Years
After 20 years of inactivity, mem-
bers were invited to what will prob-
ably be the last reunion of the Club.
Funds paid into the treasury more
than two decades ago, financed the
banquet. Dean Mortimer E. Cooley
acted as toastmaster. Evart H. Scott,
89 years old and oldest member of
the Club, gave a rendition of the
Club song, "The Big Black Bull."

Some of the difficulties she ex-
perienced as one of the first womer
to enter a man's educational do-
main were described recently by Dr.
Alvalyn E. Woodward of the zoolog3
For 50 years previous to the orien-
tation of Dr. Woodward and several
?other women, the University of Roch-
ester had been a man's school. Fin-
ally, however, Susan B. Anthony, to-
gether with several other interested
citizens raised $50,000 to admit women
to :the Rochester campus and the
bars were down.
- More Difficulties Encountered
But even then, although women
had gained access to the campus, they
experience many difficulties. No gym
4acilities were provided for them, and
they were not allowed to participate
:in any activities.
Since that time, Dr. Woodward has
felt that she has been treated just
as a man would have been under the;
circumstances, and she agrees that's
the way it should be. No partiality
was shown one way or the other :in
her classes, she declares. Now, she
carries a full teaching load of 14
hours of classwork plus the duty of
advising two doctoral students.
Held Many Positions
Since she obtained her PhD here,
Dr. Woodward has held positions in
a number of institutions. From her
post as teacher of English and his-
tory in a small high school outside
of Rochester, she became assistant
in Vassar College, instructor at Sim-
mons College, then Amhurst College,
and finally went to North Carolina'
College to accept an assistant pro-
fessorship. In 1923 she became an:
associate professor at the. University
of Maine, and in 1927 she received
her position as assistant professor at
the University.
Her life after working hours is
taken up with her duties as a house-
keeper for two older members of her
family. She plants a flower garden
every year and enjoys listening to
