ity, freedom and reciprocity in world
Following Professor Reeves, a round
table discussion concluded that there
is little likelihood of instability in
the Russo-German pact and that
peace negotiations today are far less
likely to succeed than similar moves
in 1916.
Marriage surveys, neurotic rats,
mentally retarded children and re-
ligion-such topics concerned the psy-
chology section in its sessions yester-
Prof. Norman R. Maier of the psy-
chology department explained how his
rats go into convulsions when con-
fronted by a complex situation and
how as soon as an escape is offered,
the rat loses its neurotic tendencies.
Other speakers at the sessions were
Mr. William Gilbert of the psychology
department, Prof. J. L. Carter of Wes-
tern State Teachers' College and Dr.
Henry Werner of the Wayne County
Training School.
Sanitary, Medical Science-
An overabundance of papers forced
the sanitary and medical science sec-
tion to overflow into two rooms yes-
terday. Dr. A. J. Derbyshire, Dr. K.
E. Corrigan and Dr. H. Hayden of
Wayne University explained their ex-
periments in the "Epileptiform Seiz-
ures in the Dog Following Massive
Doses of Supervoltage X-Rays." They
pointed out that a relationship exists
between dog and human brain waves.
In Germany "game law violating
is a major crime," Mr. William Graf,
of Michigan State College asserted
yesterday in the zoology section.
Contrary to common opinion, he
pointed out, there is an abundance
of game in Germany but the laws
about hunting it are very strict. For
example, he said, a man must own
or lease the land on which he hunts
and he must pass strict tests on his
knowledge of firearms and game.
Recent research in the giant kid-
ney worm-a large red worm de-
stroying one kidney of the infected
individual--was discussed by Mr.
Charles W. McNeil, Grad.
Language And Literature
Asserting that W .H. Auden's be-
lief in the "nearly hopeless anarchy
of modern life" and the "desolation
of the mind in this anarchy" is rep-
resentative of the feelings of poets.

on has ,been entertained for more
than 150 years.
Prof. Thomas A. Knott, also of the
English department, spoke on "Sur-
; ames and the Middle English rAc-
ionauy." Other speakers of the ses-
ion under the leadership of Prof.
Bruno Meinecke of the Latin depart-
ment included Prof. James H. War-
aer of Hope College, Prof. Warner
G. Rice, chairman of the English
department and others.
Geology And Minerology
Describing the development of the
Crystal Lake sand bar in the Benzie
County summer resort of Michigan,
Mr. James L. Calver of the geology
department pointed out that it was
first formed approximIa ely 50,000
years ago.
Diamonds have been growing in
importance as cutting tools since
1932, Prof. Edward H. Kraus, dean
of the literary college, and Prof.
Chester B. Slawson of the miner-
alogy department, explained. They
pointed out that effective diamond
cutting is dependent on the technicalj
skill of the operator.
Instruction of forestry can be help-
ed by the forest model-a type of
display that can be changed to sim-
ulate any set of conditions leading
to forestry problems-Prof. J. Hugo
Kraemer of Michigan State pointed
out yesterday.
Prof. E. C. O'Roke of the forestry
school discussed "Pine, Mice and
Rabbits," the record of an experi-
mental plot planted with a special
type of pine and watched over 10
years. The conclusion to be derived
from the research, he said, i that
damage to individual trees is not
indicative of the damage to the en-
tire stand of timber for a similar
Exotic flora line the roadbed of
the Pan-American highway in north-

Srri Meiceoi, Dr. Leslie A. Kenoyer of
Western State Teachers College de-
clared yesterday. This is interesting,
he said, because the highway winds
through areas of different rainfalls.
Northwestern Washington pro-
duces unusual fungi, Dr. Alexander
Smith of the botany department
pointed out. There are many as yet
unclassified fungi representatives in
this area, he concluded.
Different traits in children are'
derived from diversified parentage,
Prof. Byron O. Hughes of the dental
school, disclosed yesterday. Juvenile
delinquency can often be attributed
to this split growth, he concluded.
Among the other talks during the
scction were some on plant medi-
(,ines of the Chippewa tribe, exca-
vations in Seleucia and diffusion of
Chinese porcelain.

Union Travel Board

The Untion -opelrated travel bulle-
tin board, set up yesterday in the
Union's lobby, is now ready for busi-
ness according to Pete Brown. '41E,
of the executive staff.
The Board is available to all stu-
dents who either have a car and de-
sire passengers on the trip home
Spring Vacation, or are interested
in getting a ride. No charge is made
for this service. Special forms for
use on the board may be filled out
in the student offices from 3 to 5
p.m. every day.
The bulletin board has proved
highly successful in the year of its
operation, Brown pointed out. It was
first used before spring recess last
year. More than 200 applications
were received for use before last

eF the landscape arehitecture section
yesterday. Motion pietures of Mih -
igan's landscape and scenic attrac-
tions taken by the State's Conserva-
tion Department featured the din-
ner meeting.
Defending his monograph on early
maps of Antarctic lands, Prof. WVi-
liam H. Hobbs of the geology depart-
mnent pointed out that British state-
ments as to the dubious authenticity
of his work were completely false.
Others in the section included
Mr. K. C. McMurray of the geogra-
phy department who discussed "Tax
Delinquency in Washtenaw County."
Sections meeting today are those
in botany, geology and mineralogy,

RUSSiA'S PEACE with Finland brought no peace of mind to her Scandinavian neighbors, Sweden and
Norway. . The pact of Mosoow gave Russia vital rail links across Finland and, further, virtually made the
Gulf of Finland a "Russian Lake." With naval and a ir bases dotting both sides and Hanko under lease to-
Russia, even the Gulf of Bothnia is menaced. Throug h it passes the "lifeline" of Swedish iron ore .cargoes
Four routes are open to Russia: (1) North through M urmansk, past the Petsamo region where the penn-
sulua's tip was ceded to Russia; (2) across Finland's n arrow waist on rail connections to be built to the head
of the Gulf of Bothnia; (3) through the Karelian Isth nius a-long Finnish railroads; (4) through Finnish Gull.
Shaded areas were ceded to Russia.


Campus. Trail-Blazing Causes
Damage To Lawns Shrubbery

The old-fashioned pioneering spirit
that Michigan students have shown
in blazing new trails on the University
campus may be an admirable trait,
but its effects cause the Building' and
Grounds department plenty of time,
worry, and trouble, E. C. Pardon,
director of the department, said in an
interview yesterday.
Shrubbery is trampled, grass is
matted under the snow and killed in
some instances, and the campus
lawns receive a general defacementy
under the soles of saddle shoes, Par-
don declared.
This year the department tried to
stop the onslaught byerecting snow
fences in strategic spots. These will
be taken down this spring when
muddy lawns will discourage any
campus jaywalkers, Pardon said.
The department has been watching
the trail-blazing phenomena for a,
number of years and has evolved a
theory to explain it, Pardon continued.
There are two aspects to the prob-
lem. When a dormitory is construct-
ed the occupants soon make a new
path on their way to the campus.
Because that traffic will continue to
persist every year those new paths
will be paved to make permanent side-
walks. Thus the trail in front of
Alumni Hall made by the boys from
the recently constructed West Quad-

rangle dorms will become a sidewalk,
Pardon said.
But most of the other paths on the
campus change from year to year
because the classifications of stu-.
dents change. One year there may
be a great deal of traffic between any
two campus buildings, while the next
year there will be very little. Thus
the permanence of these trails is
practically unpredictable, Pardon con-
