It Houses
Delta Phi And Theta Delta
Chi Fraternities Looted
Early Tuesday Morning
Is Fourth Burglary
Of Summer Session
Two Typewriters And A
Quantity Of Cash Taken
While Members Sleep
Robbers who have repeatedly been
looting campus buildings and frater-
nities broke into two more houses
early Tuesday morning, as Delta Phi,
915 Oakland Ave., and Theta Delta
Chi, 700 S. State St., were victimized.
Both of these fraternities are open
for the Summer Session' and are
housing a small number of students.
These recent robberies bring the
total for the summer to four. Last
week-end the office of Prof. W. H.
Worrell of the department of Sem-
etics was entered and a clock and
a portable typewriter were stolen.
The morning of July 2, thieves took
$35 from the Lambda Chi Alpha
house, 1601 Washtenaw Ave. During
the regular college session, there were
more burglaries than there had been
any previous year, according to re-
Happened Between 2 and 7
It is believed that Tuesday's crimes
occurred sometime between 2 a. m.
and 7 a: m. At the Delta Phi house
a total of $20 in cash was taken from
Thomas M. Cooley, of Detroit, and
James Morgan, of Cleveland. Two
typewriters and a small amount of
money were removed from the Theta
Delta Chi fraternity.
Chief of Police Louis W. Fohey said
yesterday that the local police force
had no leads regarding the many
thefts which have occurred recently
on the University campus. He added
at the same time that he did not
have any definite reason for believing
that a Detroit gang had any connec-
tion with the burglaries.
This is opposed to the opinion ex-
pressed by Professor Worrell Monday.
It was his belief that a ring of De-
troiters was being aided in these
crimes by students who had inside
information about campus buildings.
Police Can Do Little
Chief Fohey stated that there was
little that local officers could do to
prevent thefts in fraternities because
of the fact that students fail to take
the necessary precautions to avoid
burglaries. The police scout cars are
not able to cover the fraternity area
more than several times an hour,
which gives robbers an opportunity
to do their work and escape unmo-
Professor Worrell stated that the
cause of the lootings of University of-
fices was the lack of police protec-
tion. He admitted 'that there are
many campus policemen who go from
building to building after closing
hours, but declared that their prin-
ciple function is to detect and report
fires. Unless a room is lighted, he
said, they make no investigation

other than trying the doors to see if
they are locked.

"Health is more than freedom from
disease-it is the best possible condi-
tion and includes mind and body, at-
titude and disposition," Dr. Margaret
Bell, head of physical education for
women, said yesterday afternoon at a
conference sponsored by the School
of Education.
Speaking from the standpoint of
an educator, Dr. Bell told the audi-
ence that, for the teacher, personal
health has two aspects: first, the
contribution that it makes to the
happiness of the teacher and, second,
its reflection in the attitude of the
To emphasize the place of mental
hygiene, statistics from the mental
hygiene department of the University
Health Service were quoted by Dr.

"In 324 cases of men with mental
disturbances," she said, "health was
the primary cause in 128, second in
importance in 47, and third in 28.
Sex was the motivating factor in 64
cases, was the second most important
cause in 47, and was third in 56
Dr. Bell then pointed out that all
people look forward to reasonably
happy existences. "Life is made up
of robust health," she said, "andof
satisfactory economic adjustment,
domestic felicity, civic adjustment,
recreation, and spiritual satisfaction.
Neglect of any one aspect is danger-

League Plans
Second Dance;
To BeFriday
Saturday Dances Also To
Be Continued If They
Prove Popular
Opening the series of regular Sum-
mer Session dances at the League,
following the reception and Satur-
day night dance last week, Al Cow-
an's orchestra will entertain Friday
and Saturday nights of this week in
the League Ballroom.
Saturday night dances, being tried
for the first time this year, are not
assured for the entire summer, Miss
Ethel McCormick, social director,
said yesterday. Their continuance
after this week-end will depend en-
tirely upon the attendance and in-I
terest shown.
In order to facilitate patrons' get-
ting acquainted with each other, and
to encourage men and women stu-
dents to attend the dances whether
they have partners or not, the host
and hostess committees will be con-
tinued for all the dances, Miss Mc-
Cormick said. "In fact," she added,
"the principal aim of the dances this
summer is to get the students to
come and mix and get acquainted."
Introductions by the 25 hostessesI
will be made in the Grand Rapids
Room and the concourse for every
dance, and in this way students will
have opportunity to meet many other
patrons of the parties.
Half-Price License Plates

Frank D. Fitzgerald, secretary of
state announced today. He secured
the adoption of a resolution by the
State Administrative Board authoriz-
ing such action.
Ordinarily the plates are sold at
full price until September 1. Fitz-
gerald said advancing the date would
encourage the sale of new cars and
would bring thousands of cars onto
the road to increase gasoline tax

Special Lectures
Speaker Is Director Of
Famous Transportation
Engineering Library
Prof. John S. Worley of the en-
gineering school will speak on the
Summer Session special lecture series
at 5 p. m. today in Natural Science
Auditorium, taking as his subject
"The Antiquity of Things New."
The talk will deal largely with
methods of transportation which are
considered modern but are actually
old. Early machine-driven vehicles-
ancient bridges which are - still in
use-a road 3,500 years old on which
it would still be possible to drive an
automobile 50 or 60 miles an hour
will be described in the lecture.
Is Director of Library
Professor Worley is espe"ially qual-
ified to speak on the subject through
his connection with the University
Transportation Library, a collection
of volumes which has no counterpart
in the world. In 1922 Professor Wor-
ley was called to the campus to start
a course in transportation-a subject
which had never before been con-
sidered as a unit. In preparing for
the work he discovered that neither'
the University Library, the Library of
Congress, nor the New York Public
Library had collections under the
heading of transportation, and he
evolved the idea of gathering a li-
brary for his own use.
Branch of Main Library
Since then the collection has been
built up here as a branch of the Uni-
versity Library to the point where it
contains 100,000 prints, books, and
pamphlets, and a card-index bibliog-
raphy of every known item on trans-
portation. Transportation, as a sep-
arate subject in engineering, has
gained wide consideration since its
induction here under Professor Wor-
ley, and is shortly to be introduced
into the curricula of several other
Large Sale Of
Seats Reported

'Uncle Tom's Cabin' Is To
Open Tonight At Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre
Reports of aheavy advance sale
of tickets for the four-day run of
"Uncle Tom'srCabin," fourth offering
on the Michigan Repertory Players'
summer program, were heard from
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre box-
office last night. The revival of the
George L. Aiken dramatization of the
famous novel by Harriet Beecher
Stowe will run tonight, Thursday,
Friday, and Saturday, with a special
children's matinee Saturday.
Starred as Uncle Tom will be Fred-
eric Crandall, who achieved general
acclaim here during the past season
with his parts in "Hay Fever" and
"Journey's End." Other featured
players in the 42-man cast are
Frances K. Johnson, Ana Lou Fer-
guson, Lauren Gilbert, and Jay Pozz.
Assertions that the Repertory
Players would present a burlesque
of the old melodrama were allayed by
Valentine B. Windt, director, who be-
lieves that "Uncle Tom's Cabin" con-
tains "a wealth of emotion for the
really sincere actor."
Seats for the children's matinee
will not be reserved, according to an-

The Federal government threw itsl

Four persons, all prominent in
their communities, were missing. Two

Eighteen days of fun in the open
air for more than 100 underprivi-
leged youngsters from Ann Arbor
and Detroit depend on the success
of a tag day which the University
of Michigan Fresh Air Camp will
hold in Ann Arbor next Tuesday.
The camp, located on the cool
shores of Patterson Lake, 24 miles
from Ann Arbor, is at present the
home of 114 boys who have been
there since July 3. Their vacation
out of doors ends July 20.
On July 24, the camp, which is
sponsored by the Student Christian
Association, will open for a second
term to give another group of boys
an equal opportunity-if the tag day
is successful.
Anyone who doesn't believe that
the Fresh Air Camp does wonders
for the underprivileged youngsters
who are sent there by welfare or-
ganizations will have an opportunity
to "see for himself" next Tuesday
when the entire group will parade
through town prior to the opening
of the tag drive.
While at the camp, the boys be-
sides swimming and. other regular.
play are instructed in nature study
by Lyle Passmore. They learn of
Indian lore-how to make bows and
arrows, how to make a fire by rub-
bing two sticks together-from Dick
Payne. Creative arts are taught by
John Allshouse.
Do the kids like it? Just ask them
when they come to Ann Arbor next
week and-buy a tag!
Made For Trip
Reservations for the University
tour of the Ford Motor Company
plant at River Rouge today already
totaled 33 last night, it was learned
from Prof. Wesley H. Maurer, direc-
tor of the Summer Session Excur-
The number already is sufficient
to fill one bus, and indications are
that it will reach 50 by noon today,
Professor Maurer said. In that case
two buses will be used.
In addition to the buses, a number
of private cars will carry students
to the Ford factory. The excursionI
party will leave here at 1 p. m. and
will return about 5:30 p. m. It will
consist largely of students who were
unable to go on the July 5 tour of the
Ford plant.
Professor Maurer said last night
that Prof. Charles L. Jamison of the
School of Business Administratior
will take an entire class on the trip
Professor Jamison's group will total
about 21.

Because Of Failure To

Total Of Funds Not
Affected By Move
Figure Is $550,000 Less
Than Absolute Minimum
Quoted By Ruthven
LANSING, July 11.--(AP)-Gover-
nor Comstock today vetoed bills ap-
propriating funds for the University
of Michigan and Michigan State
College. His action was not unex-
He explained it was taken because
the Legislature failed to repeal con-
tinuing mill tax appropriations for
the institutions and had the bills
been allowed to stand there would
have been a double appropriation.
The Administrative Board decided
to hold the University to $3,200,000
a year, and the Michigan State Col-
lege to $1,000,000. These were the
amounts granted the institutions in
the bills the Governor vetoed.
The $3,200,00 appropriation to the
University, provided for by the 1933
state Legislature, will not be affected
bythe governor's veto -of the appro-
priation bill yesterday, according to
University authorities.
The legislature had voted to give
the University $500,000 from the
sales tax and $2,700,000 from the mill

tax. It was the latter bill that the
governor vetoed.
As things stand, the University's
appropriation should be the same as
last year, approximately $3,900,000,
but University officials acting in ac-
cord with the State Administrative
Board, have agreed to receive and
operate on a budget of $3,200,000,
which was the figure set by the Leg-
islature, officials here stated.
This total is $550,000 less than the
amount that President Alexander
Grant Ruthven, in speaking to a
group of legislators, set as an abso-
lute minimum on which the Univer-
sity could retain its present status
Result Already Seen
The result of the impending bud-
get cut has already been seen in
the resignation of several prominent
men from the faculty, who have ac-
cepted positions at other universities
it higher salaries than can be paid
sere. This "faculty raiding" was also
>redicted by President Ruthven in
its speech before the legislators.

In the meantime, plans for trim-
ming the budget for next year are
under way in University Hall. With
a Regent's meeting scheduled for
Monday, at which the budget will be
discussed and probably passed, the
last-minute changes are being made.
Many men on the faculty have not
received contracts for next year as

Edmund Spenser, luxuriant, full-
blown romantic poet of the Sixteenth
Century, successfully combined the
ethical sense of his age with the gen-
ius of romantic art, clothing his mo-
ral themes in the colored vesture of
old tales, Prof. Henry S. V. Jones, of
the University of Illinois, told a group
of students yesterday in a lecture on
the special Summer Session series
in Natural Science Auditorium.
He said that the humanists of to-
day who have drawn an indictment
against romanticism and all of its
works have not as yet satisfactorily
disposed of the romantic exuberance
of the English Renaissance.
"In the case of Edmund Spenser,"
Prdfessor Jones said. "in which the

passion for beauty which marks the
revival of the architectural, the plas-
tic, and the literary art of the ancient
"Without venturing to define ro-
manticism," Professor Jones stated,
"we might note that the objective of
the neo-humanist's attack is the ex-
pansiveness and abandon of the ro-
mantic spirit. Here he finds the root
of romantic evils and to this he op-
poses an ideal of classic restraint. If
such are, indeed, the marks of class-
icism and romanticism we may ac-
cept the two terms as opposed, but
as opposites that are cardiac and, like
systole and diastole, of the very
breath of life."
The critical question then, accord-
ing to the sneaker. might seem to be

Greater speed in setting up the
administrative machinery which is to
handle applications for Federal aid
in highway and public works proj-
ects in Michigan was urged on Secre-
tary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes
yesterday in a wire sent by the
Michigan Municipal League.
The message mentioned that the
provisions of the National Industrial
Recovery Act were being explained
to some 400 cities and villages, that
many of these wished to make ap-
plications for aid and that some
were becoming restive because no ad-

can apply for Federal aid. There is
already some indication that they
will lose their interest unless the ad-
ministrative end of the program is
whipped into action soon."
The league recently sent out a
bulletin to 400 cities and villages
of the state explaining the fact and
is supplementing the bulletin with
