Secret Service
Film- Explains
Counterfeiting
Ann Arbor Police To Help
In Protection Campaign
With Movies Tuesday
As parthof a national campaign to
protect the public from huge losses
through the circulation of counter-
feit money, the Ann Arbor police de-
partment and the counterfeit division
of the U.S.BSecret Service headed by
George F. Boos will present a movie
"Know Your Money" at 8 p.m. Tues-
day in the Ann Arbor High School
auditorium.
This picture illustrates the import-
ant features of genuine money and
the most common characteristics of
counterfeit currency. Lowell Thom-
as is the commentator.
A short dramatic skit will portray
the apprehension of two note passers
as the result of the alertness of the
merchant who detected the counter-
feiters when they presented the spur-
ious currency and then summoned
the police.
Authorities estimate that over
1,200,000 dollars are lost annually
through the acceptance of counter-
feit money. The movie illustrates the
need for alertness not only because
of the losses involved but also be-
cause of the embarrassment which
the innocent individual suffers when
he tries to pass counterfeit money
over to someone else.
Police Chief Sherman H. Morten-
son urged that students, faculty mem-
bers and townspeople attend the

Dr. Moehlman Discusses Education

By ROSEBUD SCOTT
Solution of Michigan's serious prob-
lem of providing adequate financial
school support lies in the structural
reorganization of school districts, im-
provement of the present tax system,
the maintainance of a dynamic pub-
lic opinion, and improvement of the
teaching profession, Dr. Arthur B.
Moehlman of the School of Educa-
tion commented in a recent issue of
the School of Education Bulletin.
The problem of scarcity of school
funds has not been lack of wealth
but the result of depression condi-
tions and practices, he said. A long,
range view of education as the basis
of a democratic government, provid-
ing for a continual education from
kindergarten through professional
schools, must be placed on a founda-
tion of equal opportunity for all, Dr.
Moehlman emphasized.
To realize such an ideal, Michigan
educational programs must be con-
sidered as a unit, avoiding all divi-
sional or geographical inequalities.
In such a state-wide plan each com-
munity must assume its burden of de-
veloping facilities for adult educa-
tion, avocational and recreational
needs, and equal opportunities for
urban and rural youth, Dr. Moehl-
man further pointed out.
Concrete proposals to accomplish
such results are first reduction of
the more than six thousand school
districts to approximately six hun-
dred, by which much of the inequal-

ity and decentralization could be lected locally would furnish a greate:
