Wide acclaim has been given Dr.

phecies of world-shaking happen-
ings. He forecast the present war in
1933, the partition of Czechoslovakia
in 1937..
Traveling extensively in Europe in

Year Plan" and the Nazi revolution
in Germany.

talks by high school students as well
as by men experienced in the field
of newspaper work. The general as-

President Alexander G. Ruthven and
Dr. Charles W. Brashares will give
addresses, will be followed by an ex-
ecutive session at 11 a.m. where 10
student speakers will preside. Their
talks are to be centered around the
topic: "High School Publications and
the War," and will concern views of
individual high school staffs on their
editorial policies during the war.

convention will be a demonstration
by R. Ray Baker, special writer of
the Booth Syndicate, who will con-
duct an interview before the general

300 Boys To Receive Four Weeks
Of Vacation At Fresh Air Camps

Heapds Lab

From small beginnings back in 1919
the University Fresh Air Camp has
grown through the years into a na-
tionally-known institution, providing
300 boys annually with a four weeks'
vacation of fun and character de-
In a meeting on the University
campus that first year the idea of a
boys' camp was conceived by Lewis
SLA To Hear
Social Worker To Discuss
Racial Discrimination
Discussing the topic, "Racial Dis-
crimination in Defense," John C.
Dancy. director of the Detroit Urban
League for social service among Ne-
groes, will address the Ann Arbor
chapter of the Student League of
America at 8 p.m. today in the Union.
Arthur E. Carpenter, '43, secre-
tary of the local organization, an-
nounced that portions of Dancy's
speech will deal not only with the
policy of some private industries pro-
hibiting the employment of Negroes,
but also with the discriminatory poli-
cy of the U.S. Navy toward this
group of people. The proposed mixed
Army division of whites and Negroes
will be discussed too.
Dancy, who has long been promi-
nent in Michigan social work, has
served since 1918 as director of the
Urban League which is a Community
Fund Agency. During his tenuire in
Detroit he has lent his best efforts
toward advancing the Negro race by
improving their social, industrial and
economic conditions.
A graduate of Phillips Exeter
Academy and the University of Penn-
sylvania, Dancy is a close student of
Negro art and literature. In addi-
tion to his directorship he is a mem-
ber of the Detroit Selective Service
System and has served on the Mayor's
Unemployment Committee. He has
also held the position of secretary of
the Industrial Department of the
National Urban League and secre-
tary of the Big Brother Movement.
Cities Will Cofer
LANSING, April 28. -(P)- With
Federal blessing, Michigan authori-
ties planned today to extend to many
other cities in the state the so-called
Pontiac plan for conserving trans-
portation facilities in the war.
Governor Van Wagoner appointed
Maxwell Halsey, executive secretary
of the Michigan Safety Commission,
as state administrator of the War
Transportation Conservation Pro-
gram, and Halsey promptly called a
conference of mayors in Lansing May
11 to study the project.
Invitations went to mayors of Mus-
kegon, Grand Haven, Grand Rapids,
Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Lansing,
Jackson, Adrian, Ann Arbor, Port
Huron, Flint, Saginaw, Bay City,
Niles, Benton Harbor, St. Joseph, De-
troit, and municipalities which con-
stitute the Detroit metropolitan arca.
Halsey said lie would present a

four point program for conserving
transportation faciliges, and follow
through with a four-day school of
instruction for the municipal offi-
cials who will place it in effect, and
offer facilities of his staff to solve
individual problems.

C. Reimann, '16, former Wolverine
tackle, and Thomas S. Evans, sec-
retary of the Student Christian Asso-
ciation. Two years later the idea
took root with the foundation of the
first Fresh Air Camp for underpriv-
ileged children.
More than 130 boys enjoyed 10'
days at the camp during the first
season. Located on Lake Huron out-
side the city of Port Huron., the camp
was composed of a handful of tents.
The next year, 1922, the camp was
moved to Moon Lake in Livingston
County. During this second season
300 boys were sent to the camp, which
was run for four periods of ten days
In the fall of 1923 Marvin Ives and
Harry Earhart, residents of Ann Ar-
bor, contributed $12,000 with which
the present site of 180 acres on Pat-
terson Lake was purchased.
Today the Fresh Air Camp is a
well-equipped institution with its
large central club house, providing
facilities for wood and metal working,
general offices, buildings for indoor
games as well as outdoor recreation
At the camp 40 trained counselors
-University graduate students in ed-
ucation, psychology and sociology-_
make observations of the maladjusted
boys that lead to treatments for cor-
rection. In the majority of cases the
Fresh Air Camp has been successful
in curing delinquency and has re-
ceived the enthusiastic cooperation of
social agencies in this area.
Curtain Rises
For French
Frantic Comtesse d'Eguzon is keep-
ing her fingers crossed that all will
go off as she has so selfishly planned.
The scene is the Cercle Francais'
annual play, "La Belle Aventure," to
be shown at 8:30 p.m. today in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, and the Com-
tesse is really Sally Levy, '43, one of
the leading ladies in this year's pro-
Scheming to disrupt the, wedding,
which is to take place in a few min-
utes, the Comtesse is succeeding in
making Helene, the bride-to-be,
played by Jeanne Crump, '42, look
very unhappy, although her fiance
Valentin, alias Warner Heinman, '43,
is blissfully unaware of any compli-
cations. Now we see the cause of the
worry as young Andre dcEguzon, por-
trayed by Earl Russell, '45, suddenly
appears unannounced on the scene.
From here on in lively action rules
the day.
Some good sats stil remain, so
students of French are urged to ob-
tain theirs as soon as possible, be-
tween 10 a.m. and curtain time, 8:30
p.m. today, at the theatre box office
