Original Boys' Town' To Ask
Contributions Here Tomorrow

"There are no bad boys" may
represent a rash statement from some
points of view, but with Floyd Starr, it
is a law, and since 1913 he has been
engaged in proving it to everyone.
For it was in 1913 that Floyd Starr,
barely three years out of Albion Col-
lege, gave up his savings and a f am-
ily inheritance to purchase a farm
three miles outsde of Albion for his
experiment. The result - Starr Com-
monwealth for Boys.
More Than 1,000 Helped
Since that date, more than 1,000
boys have come from the streets,
from the courts, from unfriendly fam-
ilies to Starr Commonwealth to live
with other boys in a spirit of co-
operation and friendliness. Since that
date, also, like projects have appeared
over the country. The now-famous
Boys' Town was germinated in the
mind of its .builder, Father Flana-
gan, only after he had heard Floyd
Starr speak on "his boys."
Today the Commonwealth, "the
world's most unique character fac-
tory," boasts of nearly 800 acres, with
i40 acressoffcampus, 125 students, a
sizeable staff and an almost 100 per
cent success record of its graduates.
The school was supported almost
entirely from contributions. Its lat-
est requests made possible the con-
struction of a much-needed barn to
house the 52 cows providing milk for
DeMolay Club
Will Establish
Mason-Sponsored Serviee
Organization To Hold
Meeting In The Union
A campus DeMolay Club, repre-
senting the Mason-sponsored DeMo-
lay organization which has chapters
all over the world, will be established
here this month, according to Dick
Naumann, '44, leader of the group
which is founding the club.
The Order of DeMolay is essen-
tially a service organization, one of
the world's strongest youth groups.
Working with Naumann in founding
a Michigan chapter are Bill Eas-
ton, '42, Robert Swartz, '41, and Paul
Youngdahl, '42E.
There will be an important meet-
ing for all student DeMolay members
this Sunday at 4:30 in the Union.
Faculty members of Masonic bodies
are urged to attend this organization
There are other college chapters
of DeMolay, led by the University
of Oklahoma chapter of 200-odd
members. The founders of the Mich-
igan group feel that the University's
chapter should not lag behind this
membership total: "on top in DeMo-
lay as in everything else," is their

the boys. And recently there appeared
a new "cottage," with room for 35
newcomers, paid for mainly through
the generosity of James Inglis of
this city, chairman of the board of
the National Bank of Detroit and
named in his honor.
New Kitchen Needed
Now the boys are voicing the need
for a new kitchen. With more than
450 meals prepared daily, it has be-
come almost an all-day job to prepare
even one meal using the present
facilities. Two boys must work two
hours to peel potatoes for dinner, and
washing dishes has been as great an
They ,are asking for an enlarged
CentralaKitchen with tiled, washable
walls, and equipped with electrical
refrigeration, ,a large power mixing
unit, a vegetable peeler, a dish wash-
ing machine, pressure cookers, can-
ning equipment and a steam table.
Tag Day Tomorrow
To this end they will be n Ann
Arbor ,tomorrow, many of them, to
ask the help of citizens here in their
annual Tag Day project. Boys will
be stationed on campus and at var-
ious posts downtown with red flags
for contributors who believe, as Floyd
Starr does, that "there is no such
thing as a bad boy."
games To Give Address
Speaking on "A Geographic Back-
ground for the Study of Latin Ameri-
can Affairs," Prof. Preston E. James
of the Geography department will ad-
dress the Latin American Institute
to be held at Connecticut College June
23 to June 28.

Seniors Given
Reduced Rate
On lumnus'
Seniors need not leave college be-
hind them when they are graduated!
They can keep up with persons, places
and events in Ann Arbor almost as
easily as if they were here, if they
subscribe to The Michigan Alumnus.
And to make this even easier, the
editors are offering a year's subscrip-
tion to every senior at a 50 per cent
discount. In other words, for $2, each
member of the graduating class will
be assured of receiving 26 issues of
the magazine. Of these, five are week-
ly, five are fortnightly, 12 arrive
monthly and the remaining four come
at three-month intervals.
There are 920 pages in all, giving
news of alumni 'and campus events
and personalities. The weekly issues at
the first part of the year Dave in
them reviews of the football games
and of the initial events of the
school ,year.'
The Quarterly Reviews contain art-
icles upon various subjects, written
mainly by members of the University
faculty. Research findings, and com-
mentary evaluations are among the
types of work done for these issues.
Seniors wishing subscriptions to

Cheiistiry Awards

have been awarded to Jack P. Doan,
'42, and Charles E. Erickson, '42, for
the coming school year according
to a statement from literary college
offices yesterday.
The Paul F. Bagley Scholarship,
awarded to Doan, and the Gomberg
Scholarship awarded tp Erickson, are
both designed for worthy students in
the field of chemistry.
Foresters Obtin
Summr~ner Work
Through out .S.
Summer jobs for students of the
School of Forestry and Conservation
have shown a sharp increase this
year, Prof. Shirley W. Allen of the
department announced.
Students of the forestry school will
work in several different states, pro-
tecting forests from fires and con-
trolling diseases. Four men have been
stationed in California, seven in
Washington and Oregon, eleven in
Idaho and Montana, and others
scattered throughout the country.
Professor Allen attributes this in-
crease of employment for younger
men to the fact that older foresters
have been conscripted and also that
there is a need to strengthen our na-
tional fire control service in the great
western forests.
Drug May Be Cure
For Tuberculosis
CLEVELAND, June 5. -()- A
new drug which offers a hope, but
only a hope, to tuberculosis sufferers
was reported today to the American
Medical Association.
In announcing it and its tentative
use on more than 75 patients, Drs.
Corwin Hinshaw and William H. Feld-

man of Mayo Clinic hastened to warn
persons with tuberculosis against
expecting immediate cure. Until the
drug is proven or disproven they
claim nothing.
