Chapman Talk
Will Feature
Animal Shots
Known for his intimate pictures of
wild animals, Wendell Chapman will
show moving pictures and close-ups
stills of the wild-animals of Canada,
the United States and Mexico when
he appears here Jan. 21 in the Ora-
torical Association Lecture Series.
So remarkable were his pictures
that a Hollywood producer, upon
seeing them, offered the Chapmans
a contract for taking moving pic-
tures. The producers, being more in-
terested in dramatic effects than in
the true portrayal of the animals,
planned to provide asistants to drive
or capture the animals.
Since the Chapmans were not in-
terested in staged pictures, but only
in natural actions, they refused the
offer and took pictures for themselves
as records of what they saw in na-
ture. As a result, they have brought
back intimate records of some of our
rarest native animals as they go
about their work and play in their
wild state.
Some years ago Chapman retired
from the bond business, and with
his wife, went to the Rocky Moun-
tains of the United States and Cana-
da. There they remained, winter and
summer, observing and photograph-
ing the native animals. Their ability
to gain the confidence of timid, wild
creatures has resulted in remarkably
intimate pictorial records.
Chapman is ;co-author with his
wife of three recent books, "The Lit-
tle Wolf," "Beaver Pioneers," and
"Wilderness Wanderers."

Pacifist Status
Is Described
Conscientious objectors who con-
tinue refusing to enter military ser-
vice even after their plea has been
denied by an appeal board will be
considered felons and as such will
lose their citizenship rights, John
Swomley, national youth secretary of
the Fellowship of Reconciliation, in-
ternational pacifist organization, re-
vealed in an interview yesterday.
Swomley, who counselled with con-
scientious objectors while -in Ann
Arbor this week, pointed out that
men must give positive proof that
they are C. O.'s. One problem brought
to him by people intending to regis-
ter as pacifists is of what will hap-
pen to their families, The govern-
ment has not yet made provision
for them.
In contrast to our law, Swomley
remarked that the English law is
much more liberal, and exempts
C. O.'s from any kind of compulsory
service. He attributes this to "a
more militaristic and less democratic
Administration here than the Parlia-
ment in England. The President has
not gone even so far as the British
in dealing democratically with con-
scientious objectors."
C. O.'s in England, Swomley said,
are ministering to the injured, aid-
ing unemployed, reconstructing dam-
aged places and helping in the re-
lief of war victims.
The Fellowship, he added, is still
working on its program of pacifist
action which is concerned in large
part with advocating a policy of ac-
tive non-resistance, like Gandhi's.
Ski Club Plans Meeting

Club will meet at 7:30 p.m. today

since he has professed his interest
in the convention's purpose - the
acquainting of music groups with
the latest in band and orchestra

Youth Crime
On Increase
In ..nn Arbor
There has been a definite increae
in juvenile delinquency in Ann Ar-
bor within the last few years ac-
cording to Patrolman George Camp,
the juvenile police officer who re-
tired from the force Monday.
Because of departmental policy he
could not disclose the figures on the
problem. Contrary to the situation in
most other cities. Camp pointed out.
juvenile delinquency here is not con-
centrated in any particular neighbor-
hood or among any special income
"The basis for this type of delin-
quency in most cases, he declared, are
home conditions. Disturbed family
relationships like divorce or one of
the parents remarrying or both par-
ents working seem to furnish an en-
vironment that produces these juve-
nile problems."
Camp advocates reforms which he
believes can do much to improve the
situation. One evil is the lack of ac-
tivity for youth's abundant energy.
During school vacation periods one
can usually expect an ipcrease in juv-
enile crime, he said. Therefore, he
urges a great extension of supervised
recreational facilities in this com-
Another idea he suggests is that
the county should appoint a special
juvenile officer to investigate and
supervise this type of work through-
out the country. The present social
agency that deals with the problem
is too overworked with other things
to be able to give adequate attention
to juvenile delinquecy, he asserted.
