Volunteer Aid,
Funds Needed
By Red Cross
The Red Cross Roll Call, which is
now in progress and which continues
until Nov. 30, is stressing this year
not only relief funds but also the
registration of volunteer first aid
workers, it was announced yester-
day.
Since many industries vital to na-
tional defense are stepping up pro-
duction schedules, the national Red
Cross Committee has pointed out that
"increased tension and less time for
routine inspections will mean more
accident hazards." For this reason
they are asking volunteers to study
first aid and be of service in this way
wherever production expands.
Last year Michigan chapters
trained 10,400 first aiders, but an even
greater number is needed in this
vicinity. War relief in foreign coun-
tries is also taking the form of first
aid service.

World's Hitch-Hiking Champion,
Bob Friers, To Give Talk Here;

Discount Cards To Go On Sale Today

By CHESTER BRADLEY
Once Wanderlust takes a strong
grip on a fellow, he's never free again.
At irregular, unpredictable times in
his life, he suddenly feels the im-
pulse to travel along the road to
Mandalay, or breathe in the exhiler-
ating air of the Swiss Alps, or hear
the rhythms of a Cuban rhumba
band. And then somehow other
things don't matter,
To the truth of this description,
Robert Friers, Grad., gives first-hand
testimony. Ever since he was 12,
Friers has been an obedient servant
to Wanderlust, until now at the age
of 24. he is nationally known as the
Hitch-hiking Champion of the World.
At a lecture in English sponsored by
Sociedad Hispanica Friers will speak
and show his color movie, "Overland
to South America", at 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre.
Just a year ago Friers was thumb-
,ng around the world to win a five
dollar bet with his roommate. He
was climbing the foothills of the
Himalayas, and visiting a Tibetan
village 10,000 feet above sea level.
He was riding in a rickshaw through
the streets of Rangoon, Burma. He
was hiking through the ancient ruins
of Babylon, carrying a weapon be-
cause of an Arab revolt. He was
making two broadcasts for the British
Brcadcasting Company. He was
thumbing a ride -with Hassen Ali's
camel caravan in Aleppo, Syria. He
did all these things and more on
$82.00.
The Hitch-hiking Champ began
unpretentiously. He made a hiking
tour of Michigan from his home in
Greve Wins Place
On Hospital Board
The University Hospital reported
yesterday that Robert G. Greve, a
member of its staff, has been elected
to the Board of Trustees of Michigan
Hospital Service.
The board, which is made up of 24
members from all parts of the state,
represents hospitals, the public and
the medical profession. Operated on
a non-profit basis, Michigan Hos-
pital Service, which provides low-
cost hospitalization for more than
290,000 people, has been able to pay
all its outstanding debts this year.
The plan has also paid $800,000 to
hospitals for care rendered to 17,000
subscribers.

sources said tonight "several tens of
thousands" of French war prisoners
are to be released to their families
under a French-German agreement.
Only scant details of the agree-
ment were made known here tonight,
but the Nazi informants said an un-
determined number of the thousands
of prisoners would be released to re-
turn to homes in occupied France.

BOB FRIERS
... Saginaw to Burma to the Alps
Saginaw. Then he took in neigbor-
ing states. By the time he was 19
he had traveled over every main
highway in North America from
Alaska to Mexico. He was already
beginning to write travel articles for
newspapers and to give travel talks
before fraternal organizations. And
now he is at work on a 100,000-word
description of his adventures.
He is writing about working his
way across the ocean as a seaman.
He is writing about the day that he
dined with a Russian prince and
slept that sameanight on a haystack.
He is writing about being arrested
as a spy in Holland for taking pic-
tures of a warship. About playing
bridge with a Persian poet, a Bom-
bay pearl merchant and an Indian
Communist leader.
Last summer's junket took Friers
6,000 miles through Mexico, Central
America and Colombia. He took a
170-mile burro ride from Oaxaca to
Tehuantepec, Mexico, to call on a
girl he had met a year before. He
did not particularly mind that she
had only recently left on her honey-
moon.
