Worrell Hints That Ring
Of Detroit Crooks May
Include Some Students
The possibility that Michigan stu-
dents and the Michigan campus are
being systematically looted by a well-
organized gang of Detroit burglars
was seen yesterday when Prof. Wil-
liam H. Worrell of the department of
semetics told The Daily that his of-
fice at 2021 Angell Hall, had been
robbed last night and that "many
other robberies were occurring in
University offices that were never re-
In the opinion of Professor Worrell,
the thieves have secured information
from students who are on the inside
of the ring as to the beats of Univer-
sity watchmen, the location of offices
containing valuables, and the time
that the halls of the buildings will
be clear.
Professor Worrell's office was en-
tered some time between noon on
Friday and Saturday anda clockand
portable typewriter stolen. He be-
lieves that the robbers worked dur-
ing the reception given to the stu-
dents by the Summer Session admin-
Many other offices have been en-
tered in the past, he stated, but the
majority of professors do not wish to
report the burglaries. For that rea-
son, little publicity has been given to
the matter.
His statements were substantiated
by Hide Shohara of the linguistics
department who reported that a
typewriter had also been stolen from
her that was later recovered in- a
pawn shop in Detroit. She was forced
to pay the pawnbroker $8 to get the
machine back, she said, even though

The discussion revealed that at
least the minority report would be
concerned more with Leebove's ac-
tivities than with the "cash and

lawmakers by Councilman John W.
Smith, of Detroit, and others.

During the past year, many fra-
ternities and rooming houses have
been looted, the latest robbery hav-
ing cccurred at the Lambda Chi
Alpha fraternity house, at 1601
Washtenaw Ave., on July 1, when $35
was taken from Donald W. Lyon.
The late Chief of Police Thomas
O'Brien several months ago expressed
the opinion that the frequent rob-
beries were the work of a "gang of
hoodlums from Detroit." He said
nothing about student accomplices,
however. He admitted that the num-
ber of robberies had increased mark-
edly during the past year and attrib-
uted this to the general increase in
crime caused by the depression. Mr.
O'Brien said that police cars were
patrolling the fraternity district dur-
ing the entire night and that his
force was making every effort pos-
sible with the few clues that were
available to track down the gang.
Chief of Police William J. Fohey
last night said that it was entirely
possible that a Detroit gang was op-
erating in Ann Arbor. He said that he
had heard nothing of students acting
as "tip-off" men for the gangsters.

The Michigan Repertory Players'
fourth play of the summer season
will open Wednesday with the pro-
duction of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." The
play is a mid-Victorian dramatiza-
tion by George L. Aiken of Harriet
Beecher Stowe's famous novel. Stag-
ed by Valentine B. Windt, the cast
includes many of the summer sea-
son's outstanding actors.
In the title role of the old negro
"Tom" will be Frederic O. Crandall.
Other front line parts are Frances K.
Johnson as Eliza, Ana Lou Ferguson
as Little Eva, Lauren Gilbert as St.
Clair, Uldean Hunt as Topsy, and
Lester L. Griffith as Simon Legree.
James V. Doll has been cast for the
Lawyer Marks, Nancy Bowman for
Miss Ophelia, Sarah Pierce for Em-
meline, Jay Edward Pozz for George
Harris and Sam .A. Maddin for
George Shelby.
All told there are more than 601
people in the production. The play
has been divided into three parts,
and consists of 17 scenes.
"The production by the Players' of
this old play was directly inspired by
the recent success of the New York
production in which Otis Skinner
starred," said Valentine B. Windt,
director. "'Uncle Tom's Cabin' is a
great play, and has a wealth of emo-
tion in it for the really sincere actor."
There will be five performances of
"Uncle Tom's Cabin," July 12, 13, 14,
and 15, with a special matinee on
Saturday, July 15, for children.

Fisher Advises
U. S. T OStudy
Speaking at a meeting of the Men's
Education Club, Dr. Frederick B.
Fisher of the First Methodist Church
outlined his belief that India, the
oldest .nation of the world, and the
United States, the youngest, should
exchange their thoughts and ideas.
Dr. Fisher is well qualified to dis-
cuss the country, having been Bishop
of India for many years.
His talk centered around India's
culture and architecture, and along
this line he suggested that it might
be well for Americans to "drink at
the fountain of India's philosophy."
He said Americans should and do
leap over Europe for India when it
comes to graduate study.
An idea Dr. Fisher expressed at
this time was that some type of stu-
dent exchange between the two
countries should be established so
that we might profit from their cul-
ture as they have from ours. The
prominent men of India now advo-
cate that their young men study in
the United States instead of Europe,
Dr. Fisher said.

Many Forestry
Students Lead
Men Supervising Camps
In Eastern And Western
States And Michigan
Nearly 100 graduates and students
from the School of Forestry and
Conservation are scattered through-
out the country this summer in su-
pervisory positions in the Civilian
Conservation Corps Camps. While
the majority of the men are in Mich-
igan and other lake states, they have
been assigned to such distant states
as Wyoming, Arizona, North Caro-
lina, and Vermont.
The work of these men consists of
timber surveying, planning and
~constructing fire control works, su-
pervising forest cultural operations
such as thinning out and releasing
stagnant stands of timber, control-
ling insect and disease attacks, de-
veloping recreation facilities, abating
fire hazards, and actually supervis-
ing C. C. C. men in fighting forest
Men who combine technical for-
estry training with knowledge of de-
veloping other "conservation" values
such as game, fish, water, and nat-
ural scenic areas have been particu-
larly in demand, according to Dean
S. T.CDana of the School of Forestry
and Conservation.
The entire graduating class of the
school, numbering 12 seniors, nine
masters, and one doctor, were absent
from commencement on Civilian
Corps or other forestry work.
Camp Filibert Roth, the sophomore
forestry camp, opened its fifth sea-
son last week at old Camp 159 loaned
for the purpose by Cleveland-Cliffs
Iron Company, 10 miles southeast of
Munising in the Upper Peninsula,
with Prof. Robert Craig, Jr., as di-
Assisting Professor Craig will be
Prof. L. J. Young for the first half
of the session and Prof. D. M. Mat-
thews for the last half.
Courses are offered in measuring
single trees, logs, and full stand of
timber construction of trails, towers,
telephone lines, and other forest
improvements, and in protection and
control of forest fires.
Camp Roth is located in the
Hiawatha National Forest and within
easy reach of logging and pulpwood
operations and of several large wood
manufacturing industries.

Conference Of
SLaw Teachers
Will Meet Here
More Than Thirty-Five
Men To Convene July
17 To Aug. 18
Sponsored by the Carnegie En-
dowment for International Peace,
the second annual Conference of
Teachers of International Law will
meet at the University from July 17
to Aug. 18.
More than 35 teachers of the sub-
ject, selected from colleges and uni-
versities located in various sections
of the nation, will gather here for
the lectures, group conferences and
public addresses to be offered by
leading authorities on international
The conference has as its purpose
the dissemination of knowledge re-
garding this highly specialized sub-
ject among those who are instruct-
ing others in the same field. The
first conference was held here last
year and it was so successful as to
warrant the establishment of a simi-
lar course by the foundation this
Among the leaders who will in-
struct the group this summer are
James Brown Scott, director of the
division of International Law of the
Carnegie Foundation; George Graf-
ton Wilson, professor of International
Law at Harvard; Charles Cheney
Hyde, Hamilton Fish professor of
International Law at Columbia;
George A. Finch, managing editor of
the American Journal of Interna-
tional Law; and Jesse S. Reeves,
head of the department of Political1
Science of the University and Amer-
ican member of the Committee on
Codification of International Law.
In addition to the courses and con-
ferences held primarily for the visit-
ing teachers, eight public lectures
will be offered during the session.
These include illustrated talks on
Manchuria, the Chaco and Leticia
disputes, and Hugo Grotius. The
Far East, the technique of diplomacy,
the Monroe Doctrine, disarmament,
and the arbitration of boundary dis-
putes will also be discussed at meet-
ings open to the public.
Though present plans do not in-
clude a discussion of the London
economic conference and other cur-
rent international matters, it is pos--
sible that these will be included in
the progam those in charge of the
session announced yesterday.



"The Romanticism of Edmund
Spenser" will be the topic of a talk
by Prof. Henry S. V. Jones at 5 p. m.
today in Natural Science Auditorium
on the Summer Session special lec-
ture series.

Agreement On
Gold Standard
Question Seen
Will Be No Further Dis-
cussion Of Subsidies,
Commercial Policies
July 26 Is Likely
Adjournment Date
Chancellor Chamberlain
Declares Dollar's Depre-
ciation Is Artificial
LONDON, July 10.--()-The gold
and non-gold camps of the World
Economic Conference called a truce
today and prepared to bring at least
this phase of the world congress to
a close with such agreements as are
possible within two or three weeks.
July 26 was the tentative date de-
cided upon.
The principle development of the
day centered in the bureau or steer-
ing committee where well-informed
sources said the tentative adjourn-
ment date was selected, and in a
meeting of the monetary commission
of the parley.
In the latter session, which follow-
ed the meeting of the steering com-
mittee, the group voted 23 to 15
to retain on the agenda all the orig-
inal questions submitted.
This vote was interpreted in some
circles as a defeat for France and
her allies of the gold group who had
contended that conference progress
is-impossible without solution of the
stabilization question.
The steering committee also agreed
to eliminate from further discussion
subsidies and commercial policies, in-
cluding quotas and tariffs.
Conference delegates, meanwhile,
were interested in a debate on the
parley in the British House of Com-
mons during which Neville Cham-
berlain, Chancellor of the Exche-
quer, declared depreciation of the
American dollar was largely artificial
and unreal, predicted an about-face
in the trend and revealed that the
raising of wholesale commodity
prices is the basic policy of the Brit-
ish government.
While some conference quarters
had expected a newv and dramatic
effort from President Roosevelt to
promote a world-wide price raising
program, the opinion prevailed in
high quarters that the prospects of
agreement on the continuAnce of
monetary problems was so hopeless
that the work could be wound up
for the time being with a number of
resolutions on largely secondary sub-

McMurry Discusses University
Survey Of Isle Royal In Canada

William G. Carr Lectures At
School Of Education Meeting

"Education in a democracy is an
enterprise freighted with human and
national destiny," said William G.
Carr yesterday in an afternoon con-
ference sponsored by the School of
Mr. Carr centered his talk around
former national figures in education,
saying that those who have shaped
the forms and aims of our schools
are entitled to recognition and re-
spect. "To know something of the

education is replete with dramatic
interest and inspiration."
Three men, characterized by Mr.
Carr as great American schoolmen,
were discussed at the conference:
Ezekiel Cheever, the colonist, Horace
Mann, the evangelist, and Charles
W. Eliot, the organizer.
In connection with Mr. Cheever,
Mr. Carr told of the significance of
his English origin, his English edu-
cation, his quarrel with the church,
and other outstanding events of his
life. Horace Mann's birthplace was
also regarded by Mr. Carr as sig-

Acting at the request of the State
Legislature made in 1929, the Uni-
versity has carried out a survey of
Isle Royal, an island near the Cana-
dian shore of Lake Superior which
is part of the Upper Peninsula, ac-
cording to Prof. Kenneth C. Murry.
Professor McMurry gave a talk yes-
terday afternoon on the Summer
Session special lecture series on "Isle
Royal As A National Park Area."
The University's operations, which
followed the lines opened up by pre-
vious scientific investigation of the
island, were partly brought about by
the movement which is on foot to
make the island a national park.
"Congress has passed a bill which
provides that when the requirements
were met the government would be-
gin organization of the island as a

"Isle Royal has been a part of
Michigan since the organization of
the state," he said. "Although it isl
nearer Canada than Michigan, it was
included in the United States be-
cause Benjamin Franklin believed it
to be rich in mineral resources. There
were a large number of copper mines
there in the early day before the
Civil War, but they were not greatly
successful, and in 1890 all mining
stopped. The island now has very
few people and has begun to take
on the character and reputation of
a wilderness."
The island is now mainly familiar
only to Minnesota fishermen who
have operated there for the last 50
years, Professor McMurry said. Sev-

Prof. Thomas Wood Stevens, guest
director of the Michigan Repertory
Players, in speaking on "The Thea-
tre of the Year" to the Women's Edu-
cation Club last night in the League,
gave a brief resume of the theatre
from the Greek, through the Roman
Commedia dell' Arte, and the rise
of the theatre in England to the
modern stage.
Great changes are taking place in
Germany and Russia today, said
Professor Stevens. "In America the
theatre is in a transitional period.
Beats of rhythm are noticeable in
the movement. In Elizabethan Lon-
don, it was a playwright's theatre, in
the Eighteenth and Nineteenth cen-
turies, an actor's theatre, and now is

Thomas Wood Stevens will

tre," according to an announce-
ment. Mr. Stevens, who is work-
ing this summer with Valentine

Repertory Players' shows, is na-
tionally known in the theatre.
In the London Theatre, said Pro-
fessor Stevens, an exhilarating at-
