quantities only a hundred or so yards
away, on the other side of the border.
When he .entered Finland, Schaaf
immediately mailed one of these cards
to the customs inspector, sending his
"Affectionate regards to Uncle Joe."
A criticism of almost anything in
Russia, he said, elicits the excuse
that, "It's a heritage of the Czar," or
that, "We haven't yet had time to
,rectify it." Yet little Finland, headd-
ed, with the same period of "free-
dom" behind it, needs to offer no
such excuses. The Finnish customs
house, for example, he explained, is
well-kept and in fine condition, al-
.though ,it was built in 1918; while
the corresponding Russian buildng,
completed in 1934, ispoorly kept and
literally crumbling. The contast
between almost everything in the two
countries that I saw, he added, ap-
pears to be the same.
:In short, he observed, democracy
seems to be able to do what totali-
tarianism simply cannot do.
Commenting on present hostilities
in the region, Schaaf pointed out that
Sweden fears inroads from both
Russia and Germany, and that the
Swedish people are deeply bitter be-
cause this double-menace comes to
them in spite of the policy of non-
imperialistic neutrality they have ob-
served for well over a century.
,Schaaf also pointed to the possi-
bilities for a strong Swedish defense.
Sweden manufactures the finest anti-
aircraft guns in the world, he ex-
plained, and the northeastern line of
Swedish fortifications (nearest the
point of possible Russian invasion) is
one of the strongest n Europe. Scan-
dnavia's southern coastline, he added,
is very shallow, making sudden sea
Widespread belief exists in the
Scandinavian countries, Schaaf de-
clared, that the United States will
help them, should they become in-
volved in war. This feeling stems
from a sincere friendly spirit toward
Uncle Sam.

Editor's Note: This is the first in a
series of articles .dealing with various
facilities that the Child Guidance In-
stitute has to offer.
As a result of a bill signed in 1937
by Governor Murphy, Michigan has
rendered guidance and clinical serv-
ice to over 487 children within a'
period of twenty months. This has
been accomriished through the
efforts of the Michigan Child Guid-
ance Institute, which is now entering
its third year of service, under the
leadership of Prof. Lowell J. Carr,
director of the Institute. ,
The Michigan Child Guidance In-
stitute was created by the state for
the purpose of -inquiring into the
causes of child delinquency and of
improving methods of treatment in
cases of delinquent, defective, and
neglected children. The effective-
ness of the Institute's work is due
mainly to its uniqueness in organiza-
tion. Under the law, the Institute is
required not only to study the causes,
of delinquency, and seek ways of im-
proving methods of treatment, but it
is also supposed to coordinate the
activities of public and private agen-
cies in the field, and work with, and
not in place of, local community lead-
ers and agencies.

Guidance Institute staff, along with
its director, Prof. Lowell J. Carr, con-
sists of a psychiatrist, Dr. Paul Jor-
dan, who is connected with the Neu-
ro-psychiatric Institute of the Uni-
versity Hospital, a psychologist, Jos-
eph W. Goodrich, who, with the assist-
ance of three social workers, conducts
a field unit which makes preliminary
examinations and selects serious cases
for referral to the Institute in Ann
Arbor, a community coordinator, J.
E. Stermer, and a research man, W.
F. Watt. The work of the staff is
supplemented by psychological serv-
ice from the psychological Clinic of
the Rackham Institute for Human
Adjustment of the University, and
by technical advice from the staff
of the Neuropsychiatric Institute. Al-
though the state pays for most of the
expenses attached to the $2,000 a
month budget of the Institute, local
communities are required to meet part
of the total expeses involved in treat-
ing each case, in order to make the
work of an organization such as this

trar's Office, Room 4, U. Hall, before

Doctoral Examintion of Oren Frank
Evans will be held at 2:00 p.m.
today in 4065 Natural Science Build-
ing. Mr. Evans' department of spe-
cialization is Geology. The title of
his thesis is "The Low and Ball of
the Eastern Shore of Lake Michigan."

Today at 2 - 4 - 7 -9 P.M

Local people, social workers, physi-
cians, judges, select the cases and
carry the responsibility for follow-
up treatment, with the Institute al-
ways available for advice and tech-
nical assistance. The Institute oper-
ates on the theory that the most use-
ful thing that the state can do to
curb delinquency is to help local com-
munities rise to their own responsi-
bilites. Accordingly, almost one-'
third of the Institute's budget goes
into a program, of advice and assist-
ance to the organizing efforts of local
courts, schools, and civic clubs. A
News Letter is published by the Insti-
tute and distributed all over the state,
as a part of its educational campaign,{
and studies are made of the com-
munity causes of delinquency. At
present, an experimental project is
being started in Monroe, which will'
study 1,000 families in an attempt;
to change the conditions producing
maladjustment, in order to prevent

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
