Economics Professor Receives
waterways Survey Appointment

E. M. Hoover To Consult
On St. Lawrence River
Waterways Re-Survey
Back to Washington recently for
intensified three-week service as spe-
cial consultant for the St. Lawrence
Waterways Survey went Prof. Edgar
M. Hoover of the economics depart-
Professor Hoover had just returned
to campus after work on this survey
performed in Washington immediate-
ly before and during Spring Vaca-
tion. He was appointed its special
consultant last month.
In an interview last week, he point-
ed out that the St. Lawrence Water-
ways project was submitted to the
Senate's -consideration seven years
ago and was rejected after an elabor-
ate report. Professor Hoover indi-
cated, therefore, the basic reasons for
the new, present re-survey.
He listed, first, the desire of Presi-
dent Roosevelt to bring research on
the project up to date and to include
any new elements in the situation
that might possibly amplify or
change the findings of the original
survey. That is, he said, the com-
modities that would now travel on
the proposed waterway would be dif-
ferent from those of a decade ago-
when the facts for the original sur-
vey were gathered. Professor Hoo-
ver specified, as an example, the
possible increased shipment of auto-
mobile parts. And, of course, he
added, there are certain minor

changes to be made in the project
He cited, secondly, the greater rela-
tive importance of power as an ob-
jective of the project. Stipulating
power development and navigation as
the principal aims,he revealed that,
as upper New York State has in-
creased and is increasing in manu-
facturing and population, there has
been an increased demand for power,
not only in New York but in some
sections of New England which the
project might serve.
And, third, he said, is the necessity
for a broader, more intensive study
and analysis of the economic results
of. the project. Especially to be con-
sidered, Professor Hoover explained,
are the possible effects on the Mid-
West, the Atlantic coast ports, rail-
roads and the displacements of in-
dustry. He cautioned that the whole
project must be viewed in the per-
spective of the probable, future
growth of the United States, and
that, because the project would take
10 years to complete, all estimates
must be based at least upon the year
1950 and take into consideration such
factors as larger population and traf-

Film Of Camp
Movies Of Fresh Air Camp
Offered At Lane Hall
A film on the activities of the
Fresh Air Camp, sponsored annually
by the Student Religious Association,
will be shown at 8 p.m. Thursday in

Student Apathy
Scored At Final
Parley Session
(Continued from Page 1)
be set up to investigate the problem
of immaturity of the student for fur-
ther study by the Senate.
Dworkis, chairman of the "World
Scene" panel commented that Eng-
land, France and Germany are all
imperialistic but France and England
are not so dynamically aggressive.
The discussion centered around the
problem of keeping the United States
out of war.
The greatest contribution to dem-
ocracy that can be made here, Pro-
fessor Smithies asserted, is to culti-
vate more independence of thought.
In his speech summarizing the re-,
marks of the chairmen, he, too,
stressed student apathy as one of the
major causes leading to a weak cam-
pus democracy.
/ In closing the Parley, Professor
Shepard pointed out that there were
many who didn't attend the Parley
because they feel that it is merely a
good place for people to blow off a
lot of steam. People only think be-
cause they have to, he declared. When
the shoes of necessity pinches more
students, then the Parleys will re-
ceive the attention and attendance
that they merit, he concluded.
Senior Class Dues
Will Be Collected
Seniors dues of one dollar per stu-
dent will be collected from 9 a.m.. to

tee, announced yesterday.
The money collected which will be
turned over to the class officer's fund
of the Alumni Association will be
used to keep class organization to-
gether by maintaining contacts be-
tween officers and members and pro-
viding for reunions every five years.

very fussy man



I am a very fussy young man about a good many things, and one of them
is laundry. I like my clothes to be just right. Yes Sir, there's nothing I
get a bigger kick out of than putting on a freshly laundered shirt,
neatly folded and really clean. That's why I have my clothes done the
LAUNDRY way. I may be fussy, but I know what I want and I get it.
Quick delivery, efficient service, neat repair work, and really clean
clothes make it worthwhile to use the Ann. Arbor Laundries.








The Ann Arbor laundries have learned that the student
has special laundry demands, and for just that reason they
have set special prices on student bundles. Take advan-
tage of the facilities Ann Arbor offers you. Have Your
