Professor Gould, a graduate of the
University and former member of the
faculty, left the campus in 1928 with
a leave of absence from the geology
department to join the Byrd expedi-
tion to the Antarctic. As a result
of his work with the Byrd party and
the subsequent publication of his
book, "Cold," he became recognized
internationally in the field of geo-
logical exploration.
Previously, in the summer of 1926
and again in the summer of 1927,
Professor Gould had taken part in
expeditions to the Arctic. He has
returned to Ann Arbor this summer

His lecture today will probably be
elaborated next week when he con-
ducts the fourth of a series of Sum-
mer Session Excursions to Niagara
Falls. A party of students will leave
Ann Arbor at 1 p. m. Friday, July 7,
and will spend the week-end on the
ground that forms the subject for
Professor Gould's lecture of today.
Reservations for the trip must be
made .at the .Summer Session office
before 5 p. m. Wednesday, July 5.
Prof. Gould will explain the pecu-
liar geological conditions which make
the Niagara Falls region unique. The
falls were caused by erosive forces of
the river cutting back under an un-
usually hard flat layer of rock. The
sharp difference in level between the
upper stream and the gorge is there-
fore accounted for by the fact that
the rock beneath the falls is eaten
away faster than the top surface.
Should the end of the hard layer
ever be reached as the cutting works
back, geologists say, the river would
grade down and the falls would dis-

Bureau's Head Points To
The Services Rendered
Other Educational Units
More than 600 accredited high
schools throughout the state of
Michigan are testimonials to the
work of the Bureau of Co-operation
with Educational Institutions, it was
said yesterday afternoon by Dr.
George Er. Carrothers,ndirector of
the bureau, in the first of the School
of Education's afternoon confer-

ences, entitled, "Some of the Uni-
versity's Services to Schools."
"These schools have been helped
to reach and to maintain their high
degreee of efficiency through the co-
operative activities of local officials,
members of the State Department
of Public Instruction, and members
of the staff of the University," he
continued. "Michigan is known for'
its splendid high schools."
Throughout the State and the
nation it is known that the Univer-
sity has always been extremely
anxious to be of service to other edu-
cational institutions, Dr. Carrothers
pointed out, explaining that, as a
step in this direction, the Bureau of
Co-operation with Educational In-
stitutions was originally organized
by the University Council. "The idea
was that even better relationships
would be established and the indica-
tions are that this purpose has been

For Discussion
Meeting Held To Promote
Program For Federal
Financial Recovery
Engineers and public officials from
30 cities and villages in six Michigan
counties in the vicinity of Ann Arbor
will convene here Friday for the first
of a series of district meetings to!
be held in connection with the $3,-1
300,000,000 Federal economic recov:
ery program.
Sponsored by the Michigan Muni-
cipal League, the meetings are for
the purpose of drawing up plans for
public works programs to be submit-
ted to the Federal government, which
is finaning the nlationwide plan.
First action on the Michigan pro-
gram was taken last week, when
representatives of the state's larger
cities met here for the first time.
Officials of the league declare that
immediate action in drawing up
plans is vital, because of the fact
that the Federal government will
probably allot appropriations in the
order that local programs are ap-
proved. It is understood that $13,-
000,000 has already been assigned
to Michigan for highway construc-
tion projects, while estimates indi-
cate that the state will receive a
total of $200,000,000 for the entire
recovery undertaking.
While the nation-wide program is
to provide funds for public works of
all kinds, including sewage disposal
plants, local street improvement,
waterworks, recreation facilities, and
public buildings, a sum of $400,000,-
000 has been set aside for highway
construction work in the various

Roosevelt Has
Proven Ability,
Brown States
Says President Has Put
Nearly All Of Platform
Into Effect Already
When Franklin D. Roosevelt was
elected to the presidency last fall
there were many who doubted his
ability and his firmness; who asked
themselves what kind of man he
was and what was his capacity, ac-
cording to Prof. Everett S. Brown of
the political science department, who
spoke yesterday afternoon in the
special lecture series on "The Po-
litical Parade of 1933."
"However, Roosevelt has begun his
administration with a vigorous at-
tack and clear-cut program," Prof.
Brown said. "He has put into effect
nearly everything promised in this
platform, and has proven that he
merits the whole-hearted support of
the American people."
"So far, the President has been
able to put his plans across because
he had fine support from the people
at large. Many of them voted for
him not because of confidence in his
abilities but because they wanted a
change. The old regime had failed;
they were willing to give him a
chance. Now we realize that it is
up to us as individuals to co-operate
with him rather than sit back and
criticize. W i th o u t co-operation,
Roosevelt can do nothing; with it he
can perhaps do everything," Profes-
sor Brown continued.
Professor Brown went on to out-
line the major legislative moves of
the present year, giving credit to the
Lame Duck session of last winter for
a number of constructive measures,
including granting of future inde-
pendence for the Philippines, the
submission of the Twentieth Amend-
ment which abolishes the Lame Duck
session, and the repeal amendment.
16 States Favor Repeal
Already 16 states have gone on
record as favoring repeal, Professor
Brown pointed out, with the possi-
bility that the amendment might be
passed this year. "Thirty-seven states
have so far arranged for conventions
on the amendment," he said, "and
the others might take action if pres-
sure is brought to bear by the Presi-
dent. At all events, when it is re-
membered that 46 out of the 48
states voted for the Eighteenth
Amendment, the present trend will
be seen as the greatest reversal of
public opinion in the history of the
Professor Brown enumerated and
explained the administration bills so
far enacted-the Emergency Bank-
ing Law which empowered him to
close and open banks; the National
Economy Act, which gave him power
to cut.salaries, grants, and bonuses;
the 3.2 Beer Law, designed to bal-
ance the budget and aid industry;
the Reforestation Plan; the Farm
Relief Bill, designed to cut down
acreage, raise mortgages, and raise
grain prices; the Inflation Bill; the

Dr. E. Stern Rubarth, noted Ger-
many editor who will speak Friday
on the subject of "Mistakes About
Germany" on the Summer Session
special lecture series, has been in
close contact for many years with
political events in his country.
In the position he held until re-
cently as editor-in-chief of the
Wolff Telegraph Agency, which is
the semi-official news bureau for the
German government, he gained an
almost unparalleled grasp of the sit-
uation in Berlin. Dr. Rubarth was
also the close friend of Dr. Strese-
mann and worked with him during
his administration.
Dr. Rubarth is widely known for
his connection with a number of in-
ternational leagues and societies de-
voted to political and social work.
He is an 'accomplished linguist,
speaking French, German, and Eng-
lish with equal fluency.
Arriving in Ann Arbor Thursday
night, he will be the guest during

Engineering Senior Dies
In University Hospital
Charles Kirk, of Toledo, a senior
this.year in the Engineering College
of the University of Michigan, died
unexpectedly early this afternoon in
the University hospital following an
operation to remove 'a congenitil
tumor of the brain.
Kirk was operated on more than
three weeks ago and was seemingly
completely recovered, according, to
physicians. His relapse came sud-
denly and was attributed to changes
in the brain caused by the tumor
before its removal.

Tangible Property Taxed
The rules in general declare any
tangible personal property, which is,
sold to the consumer, is taxable.
"The term sale at retail' has a
broader meaning than the exchange
of property for money. It includes
any transfer, exchange or barter,
whether conditional or otherwise,
for a consideration. A trade of tangi-
ble personal property to another for
tangible personal property is a sale

Poking Fun At Dull-But Good-
People Is The Aim Of Hay Fever

"Poking fun at conventionally dull,
but good, people-a characteristic of
the modern age-is one of the salient
points of Noel Coward's humor as
exemplified in 'Hay Fever,'" Valen-
tine B. Windt, director of the play
for the Michigan Repertory Players
said yesterday.
"Hay Fever," the first play of the
Repertory Players' season will re-
ceive its final performance at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre tonight.
"Noel Coward's plays give a singu-
larly fine portrait of what the pres-
ent generation is like-or rather
would like to be like, smart chit-chat,
the desire to repress emotions and
fundamentally just as emotional as
ever," Mr. Windt said. "His dialogue

"Noel Coward's chief appeal is that
he is so decidedly of the age-up to
the very minute. He has the power
of witty dialogue and is capable of
.taking the most sentimental scenes
and presenting them in a totally un-
sentimental manner, thereby keeping
theatrical values of the past and pre-
senting them in the dress of the pres-
"Being first an actor, Noel Coward
is especially clever in writing dia-
logue, that is, speakable and actable
drama," he continued. "He has an
uncanny awareness of what is effec-
tive on the stage and what is most
helpful to the actor. He plays a great
deal of the humor which springs

At 5 a. m. on Monday morning, aT
time when the majority of the stu-c
dents of the Summer Session were
in the very middle of their nocturnal
slumber, the Biological Station of
the University of Michigan was1
wide awake. The first field trip of
the year had been organized and was
ready to start.
According to Prof. George Roger3
LaRue of the zoology departmentt
and director of the station, who was4
in Ann Arbor yesterday to discuss
problems of the budget, enrollment
at the camp, which is located on the
Bogardus T r a c t in Cheboygan
County, is expected to be at least
equal to, that of last year.'
"At the present time- there are 86
actually registered in the camp,"
Professor LaRue said, "and at least
eight more have definitely signified
their intentions of enrolling. Last
year's total at the Biological Station

Gleason of the New York Botanical
Gardens, Prof. H. N. Goddard of
Western State Teachers College, Dr.
L. O. Nolf of the State University of
Iowa, and Dr. Fulling of the New
York Botanical Gardens, he said.
Doctors Sandground, Nolf, and
Hunter are parasitologists, Professor
Goddard is a zoologist, and Doctors
Gleason and Fulling are botanists,
according to Professor LaRue.
More than 75 per cent of the stu-
dents registered at the camp are do-
ing graduate work, the director
stated. This high percentage may
be attributed, at least in part, to the
fact that more graduate students are
self-supporting than undergraduates
and also to the fact that many are
working for doctor's degrees.
