The need for home production was
emphasized by this statement: "The
annual consumption -f spirituous
liquors in the Illinois by the natives
rand whites (we mean on the British
side only) is calculated at 10,000
gallons; most thereof is imported by
French traders from New Orleans-
some with and some without the per-
mission of our Commandant, by
which it is known that he has re-
ceived very considerable fees."
Continuing in defense of his prop-
osition, Morgan added, "Should it be
objected or said that corn-spirit is
destructive to health, we answer-so
are all kinds of spirits when drank
to excess, but that it is more so than
sugar or molasses spirit is contra-
dicted by universal experience. What
other spirit do the poor in Ireland
and Scotland drink? and many of
the rich? Or where are a more robust
healthy race of men."

Newman Clubs
Plan Song Poll
Dance, Contest, Speeches
To Feature Convention
A contest to determine the most,
popular song among Michigan stu-I
dents will be held in conjunction
with the dance to be held as part
of the Newman Club Convention here
April 19-21.
The dance, which will be given
Saturday, April 20, at the League
with Earl Stevens furnishing the mu-
sic, is part of the. general meeting
of the Ohio Valley Province of New-
man Clubs, which is to sponsor sev-
eral addresses by nationally prom-
inent Catholic clergymen and lay-
men.
Students entering the contest
should write down the name of their
favorite song along with the reason
for the selection. They should be
submitted to Larry Anderson at St.
Mary's Chapel. Entries will be judg-
ed by impartial judges for originality,
wit and sentimental reasons.

Two New Books
Are.Published By
Guidance Institute
Continuing its policy of publish-
ing the results of its members' re-
search into child delinquency, the
University Child Guidance Institute
announced yesterday the publication
of two new books.
DIr. Lowell J. Carr, director of the
Institute, is the author of "Delin-
quency Control," a book divided into
five parts discussing the subject from
tradition to technology, the scien-
tific phase, the technology of con-
trol, social action and social organ-
ization.
Dr. Carr is also co-author of "In-
tegrating the Camp, the Community
and Social Work" together with Mar-
shall H. Levy, acting director of the
project, and Miss Mildred A. Valen-
tine, former director of case work
in the sociology department.
This book describes the attempt
between 1935 and 1938 to improve
the adjustment of 87 Ann Arbor boys
selected by teachers and social work-
ers. Part of the experiment was the
University's Fresh Air Camp at Pat-
terson Lake.

Other courses will be added, Shuey
said, as other tutors agree to par-
ticipate in the plan. To date, 36
men, most of them recruited from
the ranks of Phi Eta Sigma and Tau
Beta Pi, have signed up for tutorial
service and have agreed to give sev-
eral hours each week to helping stu-
dents needing scholastic aid. Any
other men who feel qualified may
join.
Students desiring tutorial services
may register their names and Vgou-
blesome subjects from 3 until 5 p.m.
each Monday through Friday at the
Congress offices, Room 306 in the
Union. Tutors may charge a maxi-
mum of 20 cents per hour.

into the use (of the spirits) thereof
and by that means make them pay us
for what we were formerly indebted
to them, as well as double the de-!
mands for grain which will conse-
quently tend to populate and enrich
the colony."
"To cover any emergency, includ-
ing war," Morgan added, "Breweries,
distillaries, etc. must cease working
until the dreaded evil be past or over-
come, unless we can find means to
make beer or extract spirits from
oats, Indian corn, or some kind of
fruits which we are certain may be
done to advantage."
In defense of his suggestion, the
writer says that the French charged
the colonists extremely high prices
"for that which we might raise our-

Celebrated Scholars
The lives of three great scholars,
of the past will be commemorated
at the annual Memorial Meeting of

Ballet Troupe
Will Perform.
For Students

........

With Spring vacation almost on
hand, approximately 1,000 students
are making plans for their activities
in New York-America's greatest
metropolis.
These 1,000 people little know it,
but among the 'reasons that the fa-
mous Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo
has extended its stay in the Metro-
politan Opera House until April 14
in order to give the Michigan student
the opportunity to see and hear those
who are called the "greatest dan-,
cers of our time."
Fantastic as this reason sounds,
it has a vestige of truth because the
Ballet Russe has been enjoying un-
precedented attendance from the
college students pouring into New
York for vacation. The tremendous
popularity of the Ballet for the col-
lege student seems attributable to
the fact that the Ballet never stops
in college towns and since it is the
ranking organization of its kind in
the world, collegians want to see it.
Among the ballets to be given for
the public while thetMchigan stu-
dent is in town are those that have
earned the Ballet Russe its greatest
fame.
