Espie Supports
Kelly's Budget
Recommendations for
Economies Presented
LANSING, March 17.- OP)- Rep.
John P. Espie, veteran chairman of
the House Ways and Means Com-
mittee, today presented to State Fis-

cal Officers and members of the
House and Senate Financial Com-
mittees his recommendations for.
granting Governor Kelly's demands
for a balanced budget.
Espie proposed that the appropri-
ation to the public schools be scaled
from $50,000,000 to $47,500,000 and
described other economies which
would scale the budget from its pres-
ent total of $149,116,000 to $130,370,-
He said he expected this would
not be done without incurring "some
pretty strong opposition from some
of those who would be cut" but that
he was hopeful his recommendations
would prevail.
Efforts to speed through a. long
calendar of work in the House of
Reprepentatives ran into obstacles
in the form of parliamentary man-
euvers in behalf of individuals' pet
bills, and the chamber, against the
wishes of Speaker Howard Nugent,
suddenly adjourned as his staff was
trying to untangle a dispute which
found more votes cast for one bill
than there were members present.

In spite of the war and upset con-
ditions that prevail in the nation to-
day, the University of Michigan Fresh
Air Camp will embark on its twen-
ty-third year this summer, Prof. F.
N. Menefee, chairman of the camp
committee, announced yesterday.
Established for the benefit of un-
derprivileged and maladjusted boys
of metropolitan areas, this camp pro-
vides a unique and vital service,
Prof. Menefee indicated. The camp
is a kind of "practical improvement-
ground." Boys are sent by several
social agencies; University professors
and counselors study each individual
case, diagnose the problems and sub-
mit reports and suggestions to the
agency that sent the boy.
By spending four weeks at camp
the boys who have had difficulty in
adjustment to their home, school or
community have an opportunity to
play, learn and practice skills, make
new friends, and generally do the
things that make them happy.
"The cost of the camps' operation
will be higher, and we may have dif-
ficulty in getting men and women
to serve as counselors, but we are
hoping to take at least 140 boys in
the two four-week sessions as we have
done in other years," said Prof.
Besides offering a healthy environ-

ment to maladjusted boys, the camp
also affords an opportunity for Uni-
versity students: to earn six- hours
credit while gaining valuable experi-
ence in the guidance and adjutment
of boys in a summer camp itation.

Hygiene of adolescence (Education
C120) in the guidance and nental hy-
giene of the adolescent- (Education

elude Dr. Lowell J. Carr of th
sociology department, Dr. Fritz Red
of Wayne University, 'and. Mr. Fred
Miller of the School of Education,

ports for the social agencies.
"Experts have conseirvatively esti-
mated that 200,000 new families haVie
moved or will move into southeastern
Michigan this year to. aid the nation's
war production program," said Prof.
Menefee. "This means that the need
for such a camp is icreasing."
"It will be tragic irony," he added,
"in our efforts to win the War and
preserve a. democratic way. of life
for. the children of Michigan's war
workers, if we permit-these same chil-
dren to become physically and emo-
tionally neglected in the process, later
to be among those in our penal in-
stitution upon which we already
spend $11,500 a day."
Dr. Edward W. Blakeman, religious
chairman, said that a fnew source for
camp counselors has been found in
students who attend theology-,seI-
naries. Among the schools cooperat-
ing in the project are University of
Chicago Divinity School, Chicago
Theological Semiinary, 'Meadvile
SSeminaryand Garett Biblical-In-
stitute. The counselors receie board
and room 'n4 are reimbursed for
their tuition by the tlniversity.
