Benefit Dance Will Be Held
By Assembly Project Croup


Assembly Association will con-
tribute to the support of the Uni-
versity Fresh Air Camp through
donations from the benefit dance
to be held Saturday. Nov. 8, in the
Intramural Building, according
to Mary Quiatt. project chairman.
The camp is located in Pinck-
ney region. 24 miles north of Ann
Arbor on Patterson Lake. Founded
in 1920, the camp property now in-
cludes 300 acres of virgin hard-
wood. Buildings include cabins.
a lodge, and an in irmary to ac-
commodate about 25. Plans are
being made to winterize the camp
for the use of University students
on weekends during the school
To 250 boys from southeastern
Michigan, the camp means four
weeks vacation, perhaps the
only opportunity some may
have. These boys are under-
privileged, or have adjustment
Activities in the camp aid eachI
boy to adjust to group activities.
The lake provides an opportunity
for fishing, swimming, and boat-
ing. A study of wild animals and
pets are included. Hiking and out-
door cooking have been favorite
activities in the past. Boys are
taught to work with their hands,
which allows learning without the
realization that he is being taught.
For University students who
are counselors, the camp is a
"Workshop in Human Behavior."
It offers an opportunity to inte-
grate classroom theory with ac-
tual practice. Courses in grad-
uate and undergraduate study
are offered at the camp.
The boys present a series of so-
cial problems. They may have
difficulty adjusting at school,
home or in the community. Often
campers have symptoms of deeply
rooted and severe maladjustments.
Others are those who woula not

ordinarily have a chance to go to
Four weeks is seldom suffi-
cient time to alter patterns ex-
isting in the boys' behavior, but
youngsters profit surprisingly.
The training gained in camp is
continued by the agency which
sends the boys to camp. Diag-
nostic material gained from the
camping experience is used to
further the socio-educational
The Fresh Air Camp is placed
under the Institute of Human Ad-
justment so that the student-
counselors may receive a cross-
section of departmental work in
social fields. Classes are offered in
both graduate and undergraduate
levels in sociology, social work,
education (mental hygiene), and
A double staff is maintained.
During the first month one
group of students attends classes
five days, the other works the
remaining two days. During the
next month the groups are re-
versed. This method provides
the student with an authorita-
tive advisor to whom he may
bring his problems.
The staff of the camp includes
members of the faculty of the
sponsoring departments, a psy-
chiatrist, a doctor and a nurse.
The director of the Camp is Wil-
liam C. Morse, lecturer in educa-
tional psychology.
Contributions of the entire stu-
dent body make up a large por-
tion of the camp's expenditures.
Tag Day, held in the spring, spe-
cial benefits and dances help to
raise this total.

Basic education in the liberal
arts, general intelligence, and in-
terest in "news" is the best pre-
paration for a career in journalism
according to Mrs. Bromley.
Social sciences, literature. lan-

leading to a writing career, she
said. Working experience on a
small publication and journalistic
study, especially in graduate work,
is also desirable.
Although Mrs. Bromley ex-
pressly advocates basic balance
of a liberal education as prepara-

basis for her appointments to the
