Calls Michigan
'Park Minded'
"The state of Michigan is one
of the most park-minded states
in the country," Newton Drury, di-
rector of National Park Service, I
said in a lecture yesterday mark-
ing Park and Recreation Week.
Isle Royale, Michigan, compares
favorably with some of the larg-
est parks in the country, Drury
REPRESENTING original in-
vestments of over one billion
dollars, the parkseare now facing
a serious financial crisis in their
post-war development program,
according to Drury.

We now have announcements for many of the schools. If your school

Although over 20 million acres
of land, are now devoted to na-
tional parks, private interests
are seeking to convert the land
to commercial enterprises and
are threatening to deplete the
existing acreage, Drury said.

"The problem arises when both
recreational features and commer-

Recreation Week is not official at
all, since Congress didn't find
enough time to pass the bill pro-
viding for it, but maintained that
park workers are "super enthus-
iasts" in regard to their work.
Drury will speak to forestry stu-
dents again at 11 a.m., today, in

A GOOD QUESTION-particularly for you 3,882 Seniors who are scheduled
to complete degree requirements and participate in the memorable Com-
mencement Exercises within a few days.
Half a century is indeed a long time. In this fast-paced world where events
of the very next week are difficult to foresee, long-range predictions are
hazardous. Barring the complete collapse of life as we know it today,
however, two things can safely be said:
1. Marty of you present Seniors, exactly 50 years from now,
will be packing your bags in pleasant anticipation of a return Ito
the Campus for participation in the Golden Anniversary Reunion
of your class.
2. Many of you will have had-for the full 50 years-the
pleasure of maintaining continual close contact with your Univer-
sity and with your classmates and friends through the page of
You may be interested to look 50 years into the past. It was just half'a
century ago-back in 1899-that the Alumni Association of the University
of Michigan first offered to readers of THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS an op-
portunity to subscribe for life. Through payment to the newly-established
Endowment Fund, these readers were enrolled as permanent Life Subscribers.
Today, 161 of those fore-sighted alumni are still listed on the rolls of THE
MICHIGAN ALUMNUS. They have received every issue of the magazine for
more than half a century-on aggregate total of more than 8,000 years
of pleasurable reading-for their initial small investment. They paid less
than one-fourth the amount that would have been required to bring them
the magazine on a year-to-year subscription basis-and THE MICHIGAN
ALUMNUS still goes to their doorsteps 26 times a year.
A similar lifetime opportunity is available to you Seniors right now. This
is the ONLY time this offer will be made to you at this special reduced price.
For a lump sum payment of $63.00, you will assure yourself a lifetime of
many thousands of pages (currently, 900 pages per year) in a publication
designed, written and edited specifically for your interests.
For those who prefer to spread their payments to the Life Endowment Fund
over a period of several years, a special plan is offered to graduating Seniors.
Just $5.00 will start you off with the most valuable and oleasurable readina
