Professor George E. Myers, who is

"Responsibility for choosing his
occupation and for success in it
rests upon the individual himself,"
Professor Myers continued. "The
father who says to his son 'You are1

who tells a youth he should be an
engineer or a plumber are both
dangerously near to the kind who
rush in where angels fear to tread."
"However, the father, the coun-
selor, and others also may give the
youth invaluable assistance in ob-

in this important matter-informa-
tion concerning his own aptitudes,
limitations, and personality traits,
the requirements and opportunities
of occupations which interest him,

Cramer Fate Still Mystery;

State police, sheriff's officers of Wayne and Washtenaw
counties, together with newspaper men took part in a far reach-
ing man hunt staged last night for a "stranger" who was seen
with the two couples between 2 and 3 o'clock Tuesday morn-
ing in a Milan restaurant, and for two Ypsilanti Negroes who
it is believed might have been implicated in the torch slaying.
The theory was advanced last night that the fifth man of
the party might have joined the two couples in Milan as
townspeople tell that before entering the restaurant the couples
were seen driving without any such individual.
In spite of the discovery yesterday of several new clues to the
brutal torch murder of two Cleveland high school girls and their
escorts near Willis, investigating officials early this morning appear-
ed to have made little advance in the solution of the case since the
first suspects were arrested Tuesday night.
The combined forces of Wayne and Washtenaw counties, sup-
plemented by state officials, were fruitlessly combing the vicinity of
the murder for further clues. Three suspects were questioned at
the county jail yesterday, but were released later.
Significant developments of yesterday's investigation were as
1. Norman England, 19, waiter at "Grandma's Pantry," a
restaurant in Milan, stated that he had waited on the two couples
and a fifth person, whom he described as a "ragged stranger," at
about 2 o'clock Tuesday morning.. His statement, however, con-
flicted with that of Thomas Goodrich, village constable, who was
said to have stated that only four people entered the restaurant.
2. The discovery of the blood-stained purse of Vivian Gold,
one of the murder victims, by Fred D. Jones, Ypsilanti salesman,
on South River Road, about 6 miles north of the place where the
burned car was found, further substantiated the theory advanced
yesterday that at least one of the victims was killed before the car
was driven to the County Line road.
