Pathology Authority Speaks on
Three Causal Factors
of Disease.
"Cancer is curable if diagnosed
early and complete cure results by
its removal from the body," Pro-
fessor Carl V. Weller, Professor of
Pathology 'said in an illustrated
lecture on the "Present Opinion on
the Cause of Cancer" at the Natural
Science auditorium yesterday.
Cancer, which is a malignant
organization of body cells capable
of spreading, infiltration and de-
veloping distant foci of growth, has
three causal factors, Professor Wel-
ler explained, and is probably due
to the fact that the body has not
been pub together correctliy, the
embroyal factor, the intrinsic or
the hereditary factor and the ex-
trinsic or the mechanical, chemical
thermal or radioactive irritation.
Cancer is not believed to be
caused by-any known parasite and
is not infective. Neither diet, soil, or
ground water have any influence
on its incidence Professor Weller

Fifteen Boys Wilt Sell Tags
Campus to Keep S.C.A.
Institution Open.


* * *
Head of Reichs bank
Secures .New Credit

Lack of Funds May Necessitate
Closing of Final
Fifteen small boys from the Uni-
versity Fresh Air camp will be sta-
tioned at various points about the
campus and State street with tags
to sell today. It is the annual sum-
mer tag day sponsored by the camp
to get money for running expenses.
This year it has been declared
more important than ever, for the d
camp is feeling the depression and
will have to close early unless ad-,
ditional funds are raised.
S. C. A. Is Sponsor.
The Fresh Air camp is main-
tained by the University under the
auspices of the S. C. A. for under-
privileged boys who come from Ann
Arbor and Detroit. They are se-
lected by various social agencies
and are sent out, one hundred at
a time, for two weeks of vacation
in the outdoors. Last summer, the
camp ran five of these two-week
sections, taking care of five hun-
dred boys. This year, unless more
funds are forthcoming from the tag
day, it must close at the end of its
third section, thus denying two
hundred boys the chance to come
out. For this season, everyone has
been urged by camp officials to
contribute as much as he possibly
can for a tag.
Sports Varied.
"The benefits of such a camp for
city boys, come of whom have never
been at a lake before, are obvious,"
a statement by camp officials said.
"They live out in the open in well-
ventilated lodges. There is plenty
of nourishing food-the average
gain in weight for the two weeks
stay, is two pounds to a boy. Ex-
ercise in all forms, swimming, foot-
ball, basketball, baseball; rowing,
and hiking keeps them in good
condition and teaches sportsman-
ship. One hundred and seventy-
five acres of wooded hills between
two lakes give unusual opportuni-
ties for nature study. Practically
all of the native Michigan birds are
inhabitants of the camp property."
"Everything is done to give the
boys a good time and make them
appreciate the life of nature," the
statement continued. "A rather in-
tensive study of Indian lore is given
for those who are interested. It
adds to their appreciation of life
in the open and teaches them many
* interesting things about campcraft."

German Tourists Stranded, Theirn
Currency Refused; Hungary i
Closes All Banks.
LONDON, July 14.-(A)-The ef-.
fects of the German crisis were ap-g
parent today throughout Europe.f
The situation at a glance:i
LONDON: British banks refusedd
German currency. The stock mark-a
ets closed weak.
STOCKHOLM: Banks and hotels,
refused to accept German currency e
and it was feared that thousands
of tourists would be stranded with-
out funds, as the banks would not
cash German checks. -
VIENNA: The Mercur b a n kr
which was controlled by the sus-
pended Darmstaedter und Nationalf
bank of Berlin, closed its doors.-
The bourse suspended trading in
Hungarian stocks for three days.-
BUDAPEST: All Hungarian banks1
were closed suddenly, after a min-
isterial conference, for three days.
RIGA: The Riga International
bank and the Bank of Libau sus-t
pended with respect to current ac-
counts and deposits. The Latvian
cabinet guaranteed deposits in Lat-
vian currency, but declared it
could not be responsible for depos-
its in foreign currency.
BRUSSELS: Reports from the
borders of Belgium and Luxemburg
told of thousands of Germans who
were crossing over with their cash.
Luxumburg suspended its marks
exchange. At Ostend many Ger-
man holiday-makers were strand-
COPENHAGEN: Thousands of
tourists were without money when
hotels, chauffeurs, and shopkeepers
refused to accept reichsmarks.
BUCHAREST: Financial circles
were distressed by the closing of
the Dacia bank at Jassay with a
$1,000,000 deficit.

BERLIN, July 14-(P)-Dr.
Hans Luther, president of the
Reichsbank, this afternoon re-
turned from his latest whirlwind
credit-seeking trip to a Germany

spread slogan, "Don't wait for

brought D'r. Luther back from
Basel made the trip in the fast
time of three and one-half hours.
Immediately after his arrival, the
Reichsbank president hurried from
Tempelhof airedrome to the chan-
cellery where the reparations com-
mittee of the cabinet already was
in session.
Need More Measures
Meanwhile the government let it
be known that yesterday's emer-
gency decree closing all banks was
only one in a series to be expected
in the fight to halt panic, consoli-
date the nation's credit strength,
and preserve internal peace.
It was considered likely that a
federal commissioner with extra-
ordinary powers to control foreign
exchange would be resorted to.
Just how vigorously the Bruen-
ing government would have to act
to preserve internal peace was a
matter difficult to predict. The
nationalist opposition, led by Alfred
Huggenberg and Adolf Hitler, thus
far has been talking only vaguely
of "taking over responsibility."
Despite reports that a large part
of the nationalist funds were tied
up in the collapse of the Darm-
staedter und National bank, po-
litical police were keeping close
watch on the Hitlerites and also
on the communists, although the
latter were reportedly hoping that
Hitler would first pave the way for
Others Watched
Tense though the situation is
here, Germans were watching with
closest interest the reaction of the
suspension of the Darmstaedter
und National in other countries,
notably Austria, Hungary, Holland,
Poland, Denmark, and Latvia.
This evening the government is-
sued a new decree supplementing
the regulations of the bank holiday
decree. It specified that the "holi-
day" of German banks was to have
the same legal status as the other
bank holidays and provided that
any period of grace ending during
the holiday shall not be considered
to have ended "till one week after
the last bank holiday."

Toronto, Ont, July 14-(RP)-The
old showman, Walter Hagen, fought
an uphill battle to conquer Percy
Alliss, British pro at the Wannsee
club in Berlin, by a single stroke in
their 36-hole playoff for the Ca-
nadian open golf championship to-
"The Haig", after trailing Alliss
by one stroke in the morning round
with a 73 to the Briton's 72, shot
a brilliant 68 for four under par in
the afternoon, to win the title with
a 36-hole total of 141. Alliss fol-'
lowed his par-equaling morning
round with a fine 70 in the after-
noon, but it wasn't good enough.
In the final analysis the ding-
dong battle was decided on the
thirty-fifth hole. Alliss had
squared the match at the thirty-
fourth by sinking a 35-foot putt
for a birdie three. On the next
hole, however, Hagen's second just
failed to go down, and he sank a
short putt for a birdie three with-
out difficulty. Alliss' second had
rolled to within a yard of the cup,
but in this crisis the Briton's putt-
ing touch failed and the ball rolled
to one side of the cup, giving Hagen
the one-stroke lead he needed so
All told, the match was all square
no fewer than six times. Hagen

NEW YORK, July 14-(IP)-American financial assistance was
formally extended to Germany late today as the Federal Re-
serve bank of New York agreed in association with other re-
serve banks to renew its participation in the $100,000,000 credit
to the Reichsbank, "subject to agreement to renew by the other
participants in the credit."
Prior to the announcement at the local bank, advices from
Berlin had said that the credit in which the banks of England
and France, the Bank of International Settlements, anc the
iFederal Reserve shared equally, was being renewed for three
uionths. The original expiration date was tomorrow.
WASHINGTON, July 14-(A)-The State department received
a telegram today from Ambassador Edge at Paris saying the
French government felt the situation in Germany was "easier".
Mr. Edge also said France was sending word to the Bank for
International Settlements that it did not expect to collect the
sums due it tomorrow in German reparations. Acting Secretary
Castle pointed out the crisis in Germany would have been much
more serious if the nation had not been relieved by the mora-
torium proposal. "If the Hoover plan had not been accepted,"
he said, "other nations would be expecting to receive the pay-
ments tomorrow, and Germany would have been unable to make
