Clancy Traces
History Of Aid
For Iudigents
Member Of Commissinl
For Crippled Children
Shows Need For Funds
Tracing the change in attitude to-
ward the crippled child through the
ages from ancient Greek times to the
present, Denis Clancy, of Hillsdale,
a member of the Crippled Children's
Commission, painted a picture of
public sympathy for the crippled in-
digent children, without the benefit
of funds, yesterday at the meeting
of the Ann Arbor chapter of the
League of Women Voters.
Mr. Clancy resigned from the Corn-
mission recently at the request of
the Governor. His resignation has
not been accepted as yet.
Children's Commission Formed
Public cognizance of the problem
was first evidenced in 1861, when an
act was passed to provide care for
indigent adults and children, Mr.
Clancy stated. "Afflicted children
were segregated from afflicted adults
by an act of 1913. As the scope of
the problem grew beyond the means
of the Michigan Society for Crippled
Children, a Crippled Children's Com-
mission was formed in 1927 to provide
better administration facilities," he
At first, Mr. Clancy said, the diffi-
culty was in finding enough cases,
but as house-to-hoise canvasses were
made and the public became more
health minded, the problem was that
of getting adequate funds. The act
of 1939 gave the Commission more
power and authority, but reduced the
appropriation, he declared.
$800,000 Appropriated
The $800,000 appropriated by the
legislature for 1939-40 is given to
counties in proportion to population,
Mr. Clancy said. "Each county is al-
loted $131 per month for the care
of crippled children. Each case costs
approximately $155 to treat; there-
fore only one child can be cared for
in a month," he declared. "Cases are
put into one of four groups accord-
ing to the degree of necessity of im-t
mediate treatment.
"If when the times for number
three to be treated, and in the mean-
time ,an emergency has come up,I
number three must wait," he asserted.
"To a little girl with a congenital hip,1
months of waiting means months of
pain and suffering," Clancy ex-
"The Commission has been accused,1
of being in cahoots with the doctors,"'
Mr. Clancy said, "but if I want tot
have my appendix removed, I'm not
going to a politician." What happens1
to the problem of the crippled child
in Michigan depends on us as citi-
zens, he concluded.
League Ousting
Will Not Hurt
Russian Status
(Continued from Page 1) I
and 16 of the Covenant, the profes-
sor suggested. If violation of Article
15 is proved to the Council, Russia4
may be disciplined by Article 16
which declares, "Should any Member
of the League resort to war in dis-I
regard of its covenant under Articlest
12, 13 or 15, it shall be ipso factot
deemed to have committed an act of
war . . ." and is thereby subject t9
severance of trade and financial r\
lations with League members. How-
ever, the professor pointed out sev-

eral nations in 1936, after the Italian
affair with Ethiopia, denounced the
use of sanctions and reserved the
right to omit this provision.
Another part of Article 16 which
may be applied to the Russian action
is, the professor quoted, "Any
Member of the League which
has violated any covenant of the
League may be declared to be no
longer a Member of the League by
a vote of the Council concurred in
by the Representatives of all the
other Members of the League repre-
sented thereon." . This clause con
tains the only legal method of ex-
cluding a member, he said; and if
all the League members agree that
Russia has violated the covenant she
may be excluded without being pres-
ent at the conference.
"The only effect of expulsion from
the League would be that Russia
would be tagged as a violator of the
Covenant," the professor declared,
"and this would result in the same
treatment toward Russia as was
accorded Italy in 1936."

Although considered one of the
country~s leading authorities on an-
cient history, Prof Arthur Edward
Romilly Boak, chairman of the his-
tory department, is an extremely
modest and bashful man who would
much rather spend his time hunting
or fishing than talking of his ex-
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in
1888, Professor Boak spent the nor-
mal life of any youth, entering
Queen's University in Kingston, On-
tario, at the early age of 15. He re-t
ceived his A.M. degree there and thenI
another A.M. at Harvard in 1911.
During the next two years he studied
at the University of Berlin and re-
turned to Harvard in 1914 to receive
his Ph.D.
That same year he became an in-
structor in history at the University
and in 1918 became a naturalized
American citizen.
At Michigan his rise was rapid,
Professor Boak becoming assistant
professor, associate professor and
professor in the short time of 12
years. In 1930 he was named chair-
man of the history department.
During the war Professor Boak
served as a lieutenant in the naval
reserves, stationed in the Great Lakes
area. He didn't go overseas, how-

Te also was joint editor of three re-
ports on the University's activity

Last year, Professor Boak was
president of the Michigan Academy
of Arts and Sciences. He has also
served the University as President
of the Research Club, and as a mem-
ber of the Board in Control of Phy-
sical Education and the executive
board of the Graduate School.
Among the books he has written
is "The Master of the Offices in the
Later Roman Empire", "A History
I of Rome to 565 A.D.," "Papyri from
Tebtunis" and the ancient history
section of the textbook "The Growth
of European Civilization."

The Ann Arbor Camera Club will
sponsor a lecture on "Color Photog-
raphy" by H. B. Tuttle of the East-
man Kodak Co., at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday,

Mr. Tuttle will discuss color pho-

of making colored pictures on paper

U.S. Must Find
or Action
(Special to The Daily)
Because idle youth will strengthen
any movement to embroil this nation
in the present European war, the
Federal Government must provide
employment for the young who can-
not find work in private industry.
That is the assertion of the Ameri-
can Youth Commission, a division of
the American Council on Education,
in its new "program of action for
American youth."
The commission recommends a
widely expanded federal work pro-
gram of "producing th goods and
services which are needed by th young
people themselves and by others who
are unemployed and in need."
"In the present critical situation,"
the report continued, "it is impera-
tive that none of the human re-
sources of the nation be wasted
through haphazard and inefficient
methods of vocational selection, pre-
paration and empl6yment.
"Society in each generation has
an obligation to provide for youth
full opportunities for vocational ex-
ploration, training and public serv-
ice. The existence of a world crisis,

Letters are still showing the ;x-
panse of last week's short-wave
Michigan World - Wide broadcast
from Boston. From ~lorida's Fort
Barrancas, on the Gulf of Mexico,
Capt. William F. Niethamer, alum-
nus of '25 now heading the U.S. coast
artillery corps, reported our signal
"loud and clear, with unlimited vol-
ume." He continrued, "The program
was enjoyed by the entire family,
and I want to thank you for a very
valuable half-hour. My very best
wishes for continued success in your
able department."
Reception Reported
Then an alumnus in Washington
reported but little fading, and clear
reception . . . And Mr. A. Roberts,
the 98-year-old grad of '67, also de-
clared, "The people of Michigan
should certainly be proud that their
state was first, and still is, leader
in giving her people and others a
chance to gain a foremost place in
education] matters."
In response to the Galens' Drive
interview on a recent "Game of the
Week," comes a card from Temper-
ance, Michigan whose author-mother
heard about the toys being given to
underprivileged children, and writes
of "five children we won't be able to
buy a thing for," and a husband who
is "a barber and only working Satur-
days." She continues, concerning
the children, "They got toys from
the relief last year but we aren't on
relief this year. So I don't know how
we'll get any toys for them. If you
could help us this year we would be
forever grateful. Thanking you any-
ways" .
Contributions Lacking
It seems the broadcast's listeners
needed contributions more than they
could give them. Or the needy were
the only responsive ones . . . So far
a quarter has been contributed in
the Morris Hall box
Then fan mailers have been con-
struing such addresses as "Morose
Hall" and variations of Professor
Slosson's name fom "Prof. Straus-
son to "Slawson" to "Slaughton"
