South Pole Adventures

Some men spend their lives
training dogs or horses, but Ad-
miral Richard E. Byrd has spent a
large portion of his life with pen-
Byrd probably could boast of
traversing more ice than any other
man, and all for good purposes.
Results of his six polar trips have
contributed greatly, both to scien-

gasoline and weight taxes for pur-

repeal of the recent sales tax di-

of finance and taxation.
He noted also that there is a
need for more county home rule.
P.rof. Bromage listed the groups
that would oppose revision. First,

During Byrd's second trip to the
South Pole, he spent the whole
winter alone, making scientific in-
vestigations, with only icebergs,
penguins, and a dog or two for
company. He was dramatically
rescued from his long siege after
becoming poisoned by carbon mo-
Expedition Movies Included

portraying events on this and later
South Pole expeditions will be part
of the program Byrd will present
at 8:30 p.m. Nov. 20 in Hill Audi-
torium in the third Oratorical As-
sociation lecture.
The movie shows the long voy-
age from Boston across the Pa-
cific to New Zealand, and the ex-
ploration by sea through an un-
known ice covered area, disclosing
"Devil's Graveyard," the greatest
ice-producing center in the world.

his latest exploration from which
he returned in March, 1947, when
he discovered more hitherto un-
known areas than any expdition
in history. This was the Naval

ized three task groups containing
thirteen ships.
Tickets for the lecture may be

Dutch Exhibit
Will Be Held
An exhibit of letters, pamphlets,
newspapers and other items deal-
ing with the. first coming of the
Dutch to Michigan will be on dis-
play at the 'Michigan Historical
Collections today through Novem-
ber 28.
The exhibit is being held to'
commemorate the 100th year of
Dutch settlement in Michigan.
Included are numerous letters
and papers of Paulus den Bleyker,
who came to Kalamazoo from the
Netherlands in 1850 and quickly
became a leader in Kalamazoo af-
fairs. In connection with the ex-
hibit, a 10-page pamphlet is being
issued, based on the numerous let-
ters concerning Den Bleyker in
the Michigan Historical oollect.
During the Dutch exhibit, the
Michigan Historical Collections
will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30
p.m., Mondays through Saturday
and from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

French Make
New Strides
In. Recovery
Experts Feel Help
Will Improve Status
AP Foreign Affairs Analyst
American business and financial
experts who have been touring
Europe following the World Bank
meeting in London have returned
with the idea that France, with
help, can whip the economic
troubles which have so much to
do with her political instability.
They are particularly impressed
with the Monnent Industrial Re-
covery Plan.
France's basic trouble is that
there is not enough steel, enough
labor or enough of anything.
Productive Capacity Hit
During the Nazi occupation
French resistance forces destroyed
or paralyzed a large part of the
country's productive capacity in
order to deny its benefits to the
Germans. During the first half of
1945 production was only 40 per
cent of 1938. Now, according to
French figures, it is above pre-
The Monnet Plan calls for an
increase, in the next three years,
to 10 per cent above pre-war in
agriculture, 40 to 50 per cent in
industry. To date the rates of in-
crease fixed in the plan have been
achieved 100 per cent in electric-
ity, 91 per cent in coal, 94 per cent
in steel, 90 per cent in transport
and 85 per cent in textiles.
Hydro-Electric Plant
The opening next month of Eu-
rope's largest hydro-electric plant
at the headwaters of the Rhone,
is expected to give the whole pro-
gram a great boost.
French labor unions, in spite of
Communist efforts, have agreed
to increase their work week from
38 to 40 hours to 48 hours, and to
a policy of large scale immigration
of foreign workers.
The Communists have been
more successful in tying up the
government's efforts to stabilize
I the currency.

'PROFESSOR,' TEN MONTHS OLD-Ten months old Bobby Foster of Allegan, Mich., captivated
his "students" in Western Michigan College class in "Introduction to Speech" when he took the
professor's place. An interpretation of the child's babblings were presented by Prof. Charles W.
Van Riper as an indication of wise methods of teaching a child to talk.

Veteran Efiect on Exdpucation
Benieficial, Experts Believe

The influence of the studentf
veteran on college and university
uampuses is one of the outstand-
ing features of American educa-
tion today.
That is the conclusion reached
by a number of outstanding au-1
thorities writing in the latest is-1
sue of Survey Graphic.
Ordway Tead, president of the
New York City Board of Higher
Education, in an article analyzing
the impact of veterans on educa-
tion, states that the superior qual-
ity of work being performed by
ex-servicemen effectively offsets
the overcrowding of college class-
rooms, dormitories, laboratories
and libraries that resulted from
the influx of a million and a half
veterans under the G.I. Bill of
Get Better Marks
"The veterans, on the average
three years older than non-veter-
an students on the same educa-
tional level, are getting better
marks than non-veterans," he
points out.
Tead also observes that married
veterans make better academic
records than the unmarried and
veterans with children top all
campus averages for marks and
In view of the influence of vet-
erans on enrollment totals, John
Dale Russell, director of the Divi-
sion of Higher Education, U. S.
Office of Education, raises the
question of whether some form of
"college for all" is not the logical
next step.
Must Double Facilities
Francis J. Brown and A. B.
Bonds, Jr., staff members of the
President's Commission on High-
er Education, in another article
cite figures showing that if ex-
pected enrollment trends material-
ize, by 1950-51 colleges and uni-
versities will have to double the
physical facilities of the last pre-
war year when the total value of
these institutions was nearly three
billion dollars.
Other articles by Maxwell Stew-

art, editor of Publiu Affairs
Pamphlets and Harold R. Ben-
jamin, Dean of the University of
Maryland School of Education,
underscore the present shortage in
quality, as well as in numbers of
teachers, and place the responsi-
bility f o r inferior education
squarely on the shoulders of com-
munities which continue to pay
inadequate salaies.

Missing Research and Enquiry

to report 75 per cent success by

Slender Clues
"We often have to work with
only the slenderest of clues," one
officer explained. "Sometimes it

may be a small piece of wreckage
bearing part of a letter cipher or
a number, sometimes a photo-
graph of the wreckage, although
the Germans tried to prevent such
photographs being taken. Again a
