Hopkins Has
Good Time On

Hitch-Hikes, Is Held As
'Hostage' On Visit To
U. Of M.'s 3_Outposts
(Continued from Page 1)
the only one up was one of the di-
rectors of the camp, Prof. Robert J.
Craig, Jr., of the forestry school," Dr.
Hopkins stated. "As long as I have
been going up there I have never been
abl to catch that man asleep."
"We really have quite a housing
problem at the forestry station," he
said. "Last year when I visited the
camp the enrollment was 43, and I
thought then that its capacity had
been reached, but this year it is 67
and still everybody has a bunk."
Dr. Hopkins reconted how the
boys in the camp have acclimated
themselves to their crowded quarters
by making over an old hay mow, sit-
-uated in a barn between two horse
stables, into a study hall.
Use Momemade Boards
"They study sitting on barrels with
homemade drawing boards," he con-
tinued. "I don't know how they do it
but they all seem to be happy and
healthy and having a good time.
Every available building, according
to Dr. Hopkins, even their recreation
hall, has been converted into bunk-
During the morning and afternoon
Professor Craig, Dean Dana and Dr.
Hopkins made a tour of inspection of
the territory around the camp, driv-
ing most of the time not on roads but
on plowed fire lanes.
"Dean Dana is the most amazing
man when it comes to getting through
practically inpenetrable forest," the
director said, "I'd be driving along on
a nice paved road and he would tell
me to turn into one of these fire
lanes. How he knew where they came
out, I haven't the slightest idea but
we always managed to save a few
miles and time in taking them."
Dean Dana also climbed several fire
station towers, "but not for me," Dr.
Hopkins said. "I stayed on the ground
and 'guarded' the car."
In the evening an informal social
evening was held. A member of the
Michigan Conservation Department
gave a short lecture and Dr. Hopkins
also addressed the group.
Thursday morning, Dr. Hopkins;
and Dean Dana started southward.
Enroute they visited several of their,
friends and also a number of Michi-
gan alumni. Late that night they
crossed the Straits of Mackinaw.
Visit Biology Station
"It was a moonlit night," Dr. Hop-
kins said, "and I don't believe I have
ever seen 'a more beautiful sight in my
life as that moon shining on the
waters of the Straits."
Their last stop, the University bi-
ological station proved a most inter-
esting one.3
"Unless you have ever visited the,
station you cannot realize the scope
of it," He said. "The University owns
thousands of acres there-almost all
of Douglas Lake and the whole
northern portion of Burt Lake. There
are more than 200 people in the camp
and it reminds one of a small village.
This camp is the most complete of
the three in Michigan, according to
Dr. Hopkins, because it is more than
25 years old and has been growing1
steadily every year. There are about,
50 buildings there, including a hos-
pital and a drug dispensary, both
under the direction of Dr. William1
M. Brace of the regular Health Serv-
ice staff.
Prof. George LaRue of the zoology

department, director of the station,
is doing a marvelous job in organizing
the various research projects in bot-7
any and zoology that are undertaken,,
Dr. Hopkins believes. Prominent men
in these fields come from all over the
country to work at the camp and
Dr. Hopkins stated that 26 states are
represented at the camp.
Recreation Work Shown
"During the day," he continued,
"the boys wanted to show me the
recreation projectthey have built for
the farmers of the area across the
lake. They also wanted to show me
the new motor which the Summer
Session office recently authorized for
them, so we went across the lake in
this launch which must hold at least
25 people. However, it is so big that
we weren't able to get close enough
to shore. That problem was soon
solved when we all took off jur socks,
rolled up our trousers and waded to
There he saw the recreation proj-
eet and described it as "a splendid
piece of work."
Leaving the camp Saturday morn-
ing, the two "goodwill tourists" made
their way Ann Arbor-ward and aside
from a flat tire, which they en-
countered some difficulty in repair-
ing because "for the first time in his
life" Dr. Hopkins had forgotten to
include all the tools necessary for
such a job in his kit, they arrived
here safely Saturday night.
"Weboth had a marvelous time,"
Dr. Hopkins said. "Although, I take

I could go on and on with Sunday's
discussion, telling you that this film
should be used for that, and that film
for this, etc., and when I finish you
would feel as if you had lost a battle
with a good fast roller coaster. I
was only trying to set down a few
examples to show that it is quite
impossible to pick out any one film
and call it God's gift to the photog-
rapher. That is where we commercial
photographers have the advantage
over most of you. Most of our work
is done on cut film and we load only
one at a time into the camera, and
can without any trouble use a differ-
ent film for each job. Of course we*
are under a severe disadvantage as
we have to get the picture every time
or lose our bread and butter.
Your best bet is to learn the ad-
vantages and disadvantages of each
type of film, and then before loading
up the camera think over what you
are going to shoot, and then pick a
film that will best suit most of your
subjects. You can not get superior
results on all of them, but there is
nothing that you can do unless you
care to back out the film and put
in another when the type of subject
changes. That is one of the advan-
tages of the 35mm. camera as with
most of them it is possible to back
out the film and replace it later.
Should Use Ortho
The only advice that I can give
you concerning type of film to use,
when I have no details concerning the
subject is that you should use an
Ortho film wherever possible, and
only resort to Pan. when you are
shooting under Mazda light or when
the subject has too much red. This
statement should not bet taken too
literally. I am not trying to condemn
the Pan. film, but unless you know
exactly what you are doing, you are
more likely to get into trouble with
a Pan. film, because the Ortho. film
has much more latitude and there-
fore will stand over and under ex-
posure much better. If you are do-
ing your own developing you will find
it easier to handle. And after you
get to the point where you really can
tell the difference in gradation scale
of a film, you will notice that the
gradation of Ortho is generally much
better. And don't forget your pocket
book, Ortho. is cheaper.
More About Prefogging
Since writing the article that ap-
peared several days ago concerning
prefogging of film, I have thought of
a very simple method of proving be-
yond any doubt the value or lack of
value of prefogging. This method will
also determine just how much is
needed. As soon as the experiment
is finished, I will give you any in-
formation secured.
Udet, German War
Ace, Escapes Death
WARNEMUENDE, Germany, July
27.-(AP)-Col. Ernst Udet, famed Ger-
man war ace, escaped death today
when his plane collapsed in mid-air
before the eyes of Col. Charles A.
The flyer . bailed out promptly,
pulled the rip cord on his 'chute and
drifted down, just as Col. Lindbergh
has done on several occasions in his
old mail plane days.
Lindbergh, in company with Lieut.-
Commander F. M. Maile, Jr., assistant
United States naval attache for avia-
tion, visited the Heinkel works where
fast military and commercial craft
are built, and the accident occurred
during a test flight after a tour of
the plant.
It was announced officially Udet's
injuries were slight-cuts, bruises and
sprains-but an unconfirmed report

said his spine was injured.
Surgeons asserted the chief of the
technical division of the air ministry
would be able to fly again in a week.

Karr Dies In
Second County
Lake Drowning
Harry Karr, 33 years old, Detroit,,
was drowned Sunday when he jumped
from a motorboat in Horseshoe Lake,j
about eight miles northeast of Ann
Arbor, and failed to reappear. It was
the second death by drowning in
Washtenaw County this year, both
fatalities taking place in the past
The drowning took place at the
south end and west side of the hook-
shaped lake, where Karr had been!
riding in a motorboat driven by Har-
ry Michaels, also of Detroit. When
Karr failed to reappear after jump-
ing out, Michaels went to shore and
notified the sheriff's office here.
Told at first to come to the north
end of the lake by the parties calling
in, Deputy Fred Sodt answered the
call with a boat and grappling equip-
ment. The body was recovered in 30
feet of water eight minutes after his
arrival, at which time Deputy Rich-
ard Klavitter arrived with a nurse and

every effort to elect Mr. Roosevelt,"
Representative Burr said.
