Health Service Reort
Shows Gain for June
Work at the University health
service during the month of June
was marked by increased attention
on the part of the staff to ambula-
tory conditions, a report issued yes-
terday by Dr. Warren E. Forsythe,
director, states. This growing at-
tention to defects, inefficiencies and
less apparent sickness has charac-
terized the entire program for the
year, according to official figures.
The increase in mental hygiene
service, X-ray examination o lungs,
tonsil operations and infirmaiw pa-
tients, represents preventive work
done by the entire staff. Dr. For-
sythe said- yesterday that the de-
crease 'in 'hospital cases and con-
tagious diseases has been gratifying,
although he stressed the importance
attached to the increase in acute ap-
pendicitis and tuberculosis.

He was 77 last February. For
some time he had been suffering<
from a kidney ailment, but although
his health was delicate his death
was not expected.
Death came peacefully as he lay

care of a physician for te past
eight days because of a constitutionI

The campus wi41 be 'invaded to-c
morrow by a group of boys from the
University of Michigan Fresh Air1
camp on Lake Patterson. They willt
come in an attempt to raise funds
for the support of the project which,
each summer, gives a week or two
of vacation to more 'than 400 boys
from/ the slums of neighboring cities.
Under the direction of Lewis Le-
mak, '33, swimming director at the
camp, they will conduct their annual#
summer tag-day tomorrow to raise
these funds. Almost $3,000 was con-
tributed by Michigan students at
the Spring tag-day.
The camp; this year under the di-
'rection of George G. Alder, is aboit
seven miles from Pinkney and has
been in operation for twelve years,
ten of them at the present site. Dur-
ing this time more than 4,000 under-
privileged boys have been given this
opportunity to play and swim, an
opportunity which they would very
probably never get in any other way,
through the generosity of Michigan
students during the summer and
during the regular session.

Points to Relief
As Best Way Out
Mleasures Have Not Gone
Far Enough, He Claims;
Favors Reconstruction
Loaqs to Individual
Declaring his opposition to infla-
tion as a cure for the present eco-
nomic situation, Prof. Leonard Wat-
kins of the economics department
yesterday pointed to proper, relief
measures as the road to betterbus-
There are three possible routes
out of the present situation, he said:
the bankruptcy route, the inflation
route, and an intermediary course,
which he termed the "relief route."
Radical action by the government
would be necessary, in the opinion
of Professor Watkins, to drive prices
up towards the level of 1929, and he
expressed the fear that such infia-
ti n would become uncontrollable
ard lead t new evils. He pointed
out that earlier inflation was in con7
siderable measure responsible for the
present situation.
Measures Inadequate ,
While approving relief measures
designed to help us through the de-
pression, Professor Watkins expres-
sed the view that these measures
had not gone far enough. The money
that has been put into circulatio by
Congressional bills has not reached
the spenders but has been short-
circuited on the way, he said. Since
the spring the Federal Reserve banks
have bought nearly one billion dol-
lars worth of United States securi-
ties, but most of this potential credit
has been allowed to stagnate in the
hands of the banks and loans have
increased very little.
Most of the funds-advanced by
the Reconstruction Finance corpor-
ation, he stated, have likewise failed
to reach the general public or to give
relief to the unmployed.
Favors Direct Relief
Professor Watkins approved the
contention of Speaker John N. Gar-
ner that the new relief bill should
have provided direct chinnels for
funds to reach private business and
individuals. Although this measure
was defeated, the Federal Reserve
banks have been givey power to
make direct loans to business in spe-
cial cases.
Public works, in the opinion of
Professor Watkis, represent t h e
best means of , g'ming relief to' the
unemployed. Relief should not be
confined to any one group of indiv-
iduals, he concluded, but should go
where it is most needed and where
it will be turned back into circula-
tion.' The War Veterans, for in
stance, have received as much as
soldiers of other countries and to
further them would be an unwise
move at this time.
Federals Start Drive
Against Capone Gang
CHICAGO, July 1.-(AP)-The
Herald and Examiner says the fed-
eral government has started a far-
reaching campaign to drive the rem
nants of Al Capone's syndicate out
of business.
At least 200 Chicago gangsters, in-
cluding Al and Ralph Capone both
now in federal prison for income tax
evasion, probably will both be pro-
secuted, the newspaper said. New
indictments were predicted by the,
paper to supersede 68 returned a
year ago against Capone's gangsters.

Long Preparation Necessary to
Production of Finished Play

Little do people-especially those
who are not ardent theatregoers-
know the complex and varied func-
tions which take place backstage.
If one could go behind the scenes
at the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre
in the League, where the Michigan
Repertory Players are in the fourth
summer season, it would be possible
to see dozens of students, all busily
engaged in some kind of work.
The finished play-as the public
sees it-is the climax of long prepar-
ation. It represents hard work and
long hours.
First, there are 125 students-un-
dergraduates and graduates-who
comprise the Players. They are
headed by a staff of 10-the direc-
tors and business managers-who. do
the highly technical work involved
in the production of a play.
But this is only the beginning.

part will be centered on "Berkeley
Square," the comedy by John Bald-

Which opens a four-day run August
