(By Associated Press)
PORTSMOUTH, England, July 19
-After 24 hours delay, because the
sailors were too superstitious to
start their voyage on Friday, Sir
Thomas Lipton's Shamrock V left
here this morning for New York.
The Shamrock will compete with
an American defender in the Brit-
ish sportsman's fifth attempt to re-
capture for England the America's
cup, emblematic of world yachting
supremacy.
There was a strong westerly wind
blowing as the Shamrock moved
slowly out of the harbor. She had
been yawl-rigged for the ocean
crossing with the top section of her
towering masts removed, giving her
a very stumpy appearance, not
neary so beautiful as she will be
when in racing trim.
Sir Thomas, who is ill with lum-
bago, was unable to witness the
departure of his boat, but thou-
sands of other turned out to wish
the vessel God-speed. Other ships
in the harbor blew their sirens,
tooted horns, and rang bells as the
slim ocean whippet glided out to
sea.
While on this side of the Atlantic
the Shamrock V already has estab-
lished an enviable racing record,
although. it has been only a few
months since it was launched. In 22
races the yacht was first 15 times
and second on four occasions.
She has aboard her the youngest
crew ever to participate in the
America's cup races, their average
age being .28.
Sir Thomas will follow the Erin
and the Shamrock V in a few days
on a fast ocean liner which will
arrive in New York before they do.
He will await both craft there and
boarding the Erin will continue on
to Newport with the Shamrock,
which is not expected to enter New
York harbor.
First port of call for the Erin
and the Shamrock will be the Is-
land of Fayal in the Azores.

MOVIETONE'S
LATEST FOLLY
At the Majestic theatre: "The New
Movietone Follies of 1930" with El
Brendel, Marjorie White, and Frank
Richardson. Also "Aesop's Fable,"
"The Four Flusher," "Paramount
Sound News," "Grantland Rice
Sportlight." Closes Monday.
We don't know any reason why
"The New Movietone F o 11 i e s"
should be a good picture. As a mat-
ter of fact it isn't. One expects
certain things of entertainment: a
movie should have an intelligent
plot, a powerful or personable char-
acter, some .striking photography,
or at least a few clever and divert-
ing wise-cracks. The "Follies" has,
none of them.
"That funny Swede," El Brendel,
struggles along with a cheap, slap-'
stick part, and quite naturally
makes nothing at all out of it. The
children who used to laugh at Mack,
Sennett's pie-tossing myridons may
get hilarious over an 'impossible
Swedish valet masquerading as a
big lumber man or falling into a
pool with a French maid; we doubt '
it, however.
The plot of the picture is, of
course, negligible. Nevertheless, the
movie fathers might have offered
their audiences something different
from the idiotic story of the popu-
lar young man and his wealthy and,
annoyed& old uncle, the plot that;
has formed the basis of approxi-
mately half of the song and dance
shows since the birth of the talkies,
if only as a concession to the popu-
lar intelligence. That venerable old
plot wasn't good the first time.
Some day this department is going
to break out with an editorial on
the immorality of motion pictures
which present in drama what is an
absolute misconception of real life
and serves only to give silly ideas
to impressible children of high
school age.
For the rest, the show included a
few quantity but not quality dance
performances, some mediocre songs,
and a little more stale comedy.
Frank Richardson was an unim-
pressive hero and Marjorie White
was sadly self-conscious with her
lines. The picture rates a D, but the
animated cartoon and the Sport-
light bring the program to a C.

FEARS DROP IN REVENUE
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 19-At the
direction of President Hoover, heads
of the government departments are
conducting a rigid inquiry into ex-
penditures to see if savings can be
made during the present fiscal
year.
The object of their search is to
reduce disbursements below the
budget estimates as a means of
offsetting a possible drop in gov-
ernment revenue due to the busi-'
ness depression.
This was announced by President,
Hoover in a statement issued late
Friday in response to the questions
of newspaper correspondents.
"The cabinet members and heads
of independent agencies have un-
dertaken a searching inquiry into
every branch of the government,"
he said, "as to methods by which
economies may be brought about
for the fiscal year without inter-
fering with the program of aid to
unemployment.
"I am confident that we will find
measures for very considerable re-
ductions of outlay below t h e
amounts appropriated."

"Pale emaciated frames and pal-
lid countenances" have definitely
passed in favor of a more cheerful
situation, according to a recent sur-
vey of the records and observations
of the University health service of-
ficials. In fact some improvement
in the general health level seems
noticeable.
In former days college enroll-
ments were much smaller than at
present, and the students were per-
haps too serious minded. Many were
inclined to ignore physical fitness
in search of scholastic records. A
large proportion were preparing for
the ministry or for other cloistered,
bookish vocations and often lived
under unhygienic conditions.
The present-day student, howev-
er, benefits from generally im-
proved conditions of public health,
and in addition usually has the
special care and guidance of college
health departments as at Michigan.
Heads of this service at the Uni-
versity have determined m a n y
things which indicate that the
health of the college student does
not suffer from his years of work
at the institution.
In the opinion of students them-
selves, twenty-five per cent stated
that they felt that their health had
definitely improved since entering
the University. Sixty-eight per cent
thought that their health was the
same as upon entering the Univer-
sity, and only seven per cent felt
that their health was worse than it
was when freshmen. In the opin-
ion of the medical examiners who
compared the findings with the

MEDICAL OFFICIALS FIND HEALTH
OF STUDENTS IMPROVES IN COLLEGE!

freshman year the actual figures
offer even more convincing proof:
that the life of the college student
at the University of Michigan does'
not present any particular health
hazard. The examiners found that
forty per cent of the students had
shown signs of much or some im-
provement over their freshman
year. Fifty-two per c e n t w.e r e
thought to be in about the same
state of health, and only six per
cent were considered to be worse
off than when they entered.
These results indicate that the
health of upperclassmen is no
worse, if not a little better, than
that of freshman and sophomoref
students. These results are also
borne out by the records of trips
made by members of the various
classes to the health service for
attention.
Starting with. the coming fall
term three full-time physicians and.
psychiatrists will handle those per-
sonality difficulties usually in-
cluded under the term of "mental
hygiene."
