Uniform Revision Of Highway
Markers Is Started By State
More Informative Signs
Will Simplify Traffic
Problems In Michigan
By KARL KESSLER
Plans to revise and unify highway
traffic signs . throughout the state
recently inaugurated by the highway
department were termed a trend
toward improvement and simplifica-
tion of our present road-side markers
by. Prof. Roger L. Morrison of the
highway engineering department.
The new program as outlined in a
highway department manual incor-
porates five major. changes in pres-
ent practices. The size of present stop
signs will be increased under the new
plan. Signs having double the size
have been shown to be almost twice
as effective according to tests con-
ducted by the highway department.
A more informative type of curve
sign will avoid much confusion
among motorists as to the relative de-
gree and safety of curves. The new
markers will not only give the direc-
tion, but also the degree of the turn
and an indication of the safest speed
at which the curve can be taken.
A boon to the summer tourist will
be two long-awaited changes in high-
way markers and direction signs.
Route markers on trunklines passing
through cities will be increased in
size, and will be placed at a uniformly
higher distance above the street in
order to be clearly visible above
pistance and direction markers will
now be placed at right angles to the
line of travel and a sufficient dis-
tance ahead of the intersection in
order to enable the motorist to read
the sign and react accordingly be-
fore reaching the junction.
Yellow lines marking curves and
hills will be unchanged, but will be
limited to sections where the visible
distance ahead is too short for safe
The suggested cWa,,es cannot be
carried out over-night, but will prob-
ably require several years to com-
plete. The new system will be first
tried out on U.S. highway 112.

"Students shall pay all accounts

the last day of classes of eachrsemes-
ter or Summer Session. Student loans
which fall due during any semester
or Summer Session which are not paid
or renewed are subject to this regu-
lation; however, student loans not yet

ter or Summer Session just complet-

Apparatus Exchange: The -egcntn
%t their m eng in Marcn, 1927, au-
thorized an arrangement for tie sale
of scientific appratus by one de-
partment to another, the proceeds of
the sale to be credited to the budgetI
account of the depardnent from
which the apparatus is transferred.;
Departments having apparatus
which is not in active use are advised
to send description thereof to the
University Chemistry Store, of which
Prof. R. J. Carney is director. The
Chemistry store headquarters are in
Room 223 Chemistry Building. An
effort will be made to sell the ap-
paratus to other departments which
are likely to be able to use it. In
some instances the apparatus may be
sent to the University Chemistry
store on consignment and if it is not
sold within a reasonable time, it will
be returned to the department from
which it was received. The object
of this arrangement is to promote
economy by reducing the amount of
unused apparatus. It is hoped that
departments having such apparatus
will realize the advantage to them-
selves and to the University in avail-
ing themselves of this opportunity.

American Youth Enjoys Thrills
And Freedom In Hostel Travel
By ROY BUEHLER
Perfect freedom of travel and the
"thrill of new trials" have been op-
ened to young Americans through the
development of the youth hostel
movement during the past five years,
according to Justine Cline, regional
director of the American Youth Hos-
The movement in the United States
did not start until 1934, 24 years af-
ter the origin of the idea in Europe
by a school teacher, Richard Schirr-
man. Since then, the AYH organi-
znation has established over 200 hos-
tels in eight regions and 18 states.
Outstanding in the hostel move-
ment in America have been Monroe
and Isabel Smith, who established
the first hostel'in Northfield, Mass.,
and who have continued in the ca-
paciy of national directors of the

The Ninth District of University of
Michigan Clubs will inaugurate June
8 in Detroit a series of summer con-

Hostels, in America, are trans-
formed farm houses in which the
farmer folk act as "house-parents" in
allowing their premises to be used by
traveling yoath for only a very small
fee, according to Cline.
The hostels in the United States,
and those all over the world, are open
to the holders of AYH passes, Cline
said. The pass costs from one to two
