Problems Cited
By Dr.Waugh
Suggests Good Personnel;
Selection For Better'
Wild Lands Management
The importance of good personnel;
selection in administration problems
was stressed by Dr. FranK A. Waugh'
yesterday in the final in the series of
five lectures on - "Administrative
Problems in the Management of Wild
Lands for Human Use."
Dr. Waugh outlined the problem of
administration under the four head-
ings of acquisition, protection, restor-
ation, and exploration, but included
the prolems of proper jurisdiction, the
location, design, and equipment of
camp grounds, and the question of
charging fees, in his speech.
"We ought to charge fees for the
use of our wild lands, even if we didn't
need the money," he said; "the trouble
is that if fees are charged they are
liable to turn the whole thing over
to Harold Ickes and the devil."
Throughout his talk, Dr. Waugh
emphasized recreation as the use to
which our wild lands may best be put
because in that capacity, more than
any other, we can derive the most
benefit and pleasure out of the land-
Dr. Waugh is Professor Emeritus of
Landscape Architecture at the Massa-
chusetts State College, a consultant"
of the U.S. Forest Service in which
capacity he has traveled widely both
here and abroad, and has the degrees
of B.Sc., D.Sc., and L.H.D. His series
of five speeches dealing with the gen-
eral problem of wild lands were pre-
sented this week to students in the
School of Forestry and Conservation,
and to all others interested in the

History Dates

The Oratorical Association, in pre-
senting H. V. Kaltenborn at 8:15 p.m.
on Tuesday, will write one more page
in its outstanding history which dates'
back to 1854.
At that time, student initiative
brought into being the Student Lec-

Before the Civil War, lecturing was
less a business than a means of reach-
hng the public ear, and notable
speakers were easily attracted to the
campus, records of the Association
reveal. Ralph Waldo Emerson ex-
pressed his willingness to speak for
$25 in 1856, if the Association was
"easily able to manage this."
The receipts from the series were
used for such purposes as: a grand
piano for the old stage in University
Hall, for the gymnasium fund, for
the support of the football team and
also to supply the General Library
with current periodicals and maga-
In 1912, the Student Lecture Asso-
ciation's 58-year history ended when
financial complications became acute,
and the University administration as-
sumed more direct control of the lec-
ture series. The Oratorical Associa-
tion was created with Prof. Thomas
C. Trueblood, now professor-emeritus
of public speaking, and Prof. Rich-
ard Hollister of the speech depart-
ment as directors. These two faculty
members had been sponsoring the
minor lecture series on campus, and
now expanded their organization into

the Oratorical Association.
Since 1920, profits from the lecture
series have been devoted to building
up the Trueblood Memorial Fund.

Hill Auditorium's Music Exhibit
Contains Variety Of Instruments,

What to the casual visitor to Hill
Auditorium looks like a collector's
Freudian outburst-that exhibit of
musical instruments off the first bal-
cony-has been called "one of the
most significant collections in the
world," and is pointed out as one of
the University's most valuable pos-
Representing 17 years (1881-1897)
of energetic labor on the part of do-
nor Frederick Stearns, the collection
contains more than 1,000 instru-
ments from every age and from al-
most every county in the world's his-
tory. It wa s tendered to the Board
of Regents late in 1898, accepted at
the first meting thereafter, installed
in the University Museum, and up-
on discovery that those quarters were
inadequate, was removed to Hill
Auditorium upon that building's com-
pletion in April, 1914.
Perhaps the best indication that
the collection was not the haphazard
result of amateur hobbying may be
got from the statement of Mr.
Stearns' own aim: ". . . to place side
by side, for purposes of comparison,
the widest possible range of examples
illustrating the different forms of
percussion, wind and stringed instru-
ments, with a view to showing the
evolution of types from simple to
complex forms."
With. that in mind, Mr. Stearns,
founder of the manufacturing phar-
maceutical laboratory bearing his
name in Detroit, added instruments

to the collection until his death in
Preeminently a collection of types,
the Stearns Collection has been in-
stalled with a view to achieving as
complete a reconciliation as possible
of such factors as scientific sequence,
geographical distribution and artistic
grouping. Occasionally, however,
some exhibit which evaded classi-
ficatlon was set off by itself.
Such an one is the automatic clari-
onet player which belonged to P. T.
Barnum at the time his New York
Museum burned, and was secured
afterwards, with great difficulty, by
Mr. Stearns. The player has been
in successful operation, but it, at
present, out of repair.
Of particular local interest is a
cornet in E-flat. a "bell-over-the-
shoulder" model with three rotary
valves, which belonged to C. Jacob
Gwinner (1839-1875) of Ann Arbor.
Mr. Gwinner's band and orchestra
was the first organization of its kind
in this town, and was in great de-
mand for University and civic func-
tions. It formed the nucleus of the
Porter Zouave Band which Mr.
Gwinner led during the first two
years of the Civil War.

Suomi Club Hears
Prof. Stanton Cite
War's Basic Cause
Finland's value as a military base,
her rich nickel mines and copper
deposits, and extensive merchant
marine were citel as basic causes for
Russian aggression by Prof. John W.
Stanton, of the political science de-
partnqent, in an address to Finnish
students last night.
Meeting at the League in celebra-
tion of Finland's Independence Day,
the Suomi Club heard Professor
Stanton trace the history of Finland
in her relationships to Russia up to
the present time, and then analyze
the present war situation.
Russia may intend to get the con-
cessions she has demanded through
the new pe'ople's government which
she is trying to make her puppet, he
Prof. Preston W. Slosson, of the
history department, took part in the
open forum that followed. A poem
"The Conquest of Finland" was re-
cited by William Bilto, Grad., and
the country's national and folk songs
were rendered by the entire club.

heads of Germany's spy ring here..
Our government subsequently forced
the recall of both men, he added.

An interesting commentary on this
new alleged spy case, Professor Davis
observed, is the victim's possible
homosexuality. If a spy has a legiti-
mate reason for being "queer," he
explained, his chances of success are
greatly increasod. Certain World
War spies, he recalled, carried small
quantities of dope. When appre-
hended on suspicion, he explained,
they had the perfect excuse ready:
dope peddling!
When asked about possible reasons
for the recent slaying, Professot,
Davis was wary in his replies. Of
course, the man's private affairs may
have supplied the motive, he said.
Another possible explanation, he
ventured, might be that the man was
no longer useful to his home govern-
