touis Gets Boxing Lessons
Before Small Crowd
14.-(/)-Before only about a
dozen newspapermen and no oth-
er spectators, Joe Louis, the
former "Brown Bomber" took an-
other boxing lesson today in
preparation for his comeback
bout against Jack Sharkey next
Louis sparred with Paul Ca-
valier while trainer Jack Black-
burn gave instructions. It was the
third lesson this week in teaching
Joe how to defend himself
against left jabs and right
crosses. After coaxing Louis
through two lively rounds of
shadow boxing, Blackburn sent
his charge against Cavalier for
six one-minute rounds, climbing
In and out of the ring to illus-
trate his instructions.

10,000 Jeer At
Public Negro Hanging
OWENSBORO, Ky., Aug. 14.-
(R)-A crowd of 10,000 white per-
sons-some jeering, others fes-
tive, but generally orderly-
watched a prayerful black man
put to death today on Daviess
county's "pit and galows," au-
thorized by Kentucky law for the
hanging of a convicted rapist.
The county's matronly, plump
sheriff, Mrs. Florence Thompson,
saw to it the court's sentence that
Rainey Beathea, 22, Negro, "be
hanged by the neck until dead"
for theassault-murder of a 70-
year-old white woman, was car-
ried out. She did not appear
publicly, however, before the
milling throng in the three-acre
lt, scene of the first public hang-
ing in the county's history. Ar-
thur L. Hash, former Louisville
policeman, sprung the trap drop-
ping the stocky Negro to death in
the pit of the double-deck gall-

Michioran Study Tour Member
ells Story Of Experiences

(Continued from rage 'x
a majestic waterfall. Seventy-six
tunnels through the moutntains on
this railway. Passed through Gar-
misch Partenkirchen, where the win-
ter Olympic sports were held this
year. Stopped at Innsbruck, the fa-f
mous resort town.
"Stayed at Oetz for one week where'
the American Peoples College is lo-
cated. Studied under some of the
most able leaders of Europe in eco-
nomics, political science and educa-
tion. Bob Mitchell got a hair wave
from Oetz Tirolian blond barber be-
cause his Germany vocabulary proved
too insufficient to stop her. I was in
charge of the study group while Dr.
Mitchell took another part of the
group to Venice.
"Visited a quaint old cemetery
where the bones are dug up every 30
years and placed in a vault in the
chapel-the heads in one bin, the
legs, arms stacked up in another.
Quite effective to go up there at mid-
night as some of us did and strike
a match to see the banjo-eyed skulls.
" "It was rumored that the Kappa
girls from Ann Arbor, Eleanor Noyes,
Virginia Hunt and Betty Connor wentf
,gp there one night without male pro-I
tection to talk with the spirits but I

can't vouch for it. The reason for
this type of graveyard is the scarcity
of level land in the mountainous dis-
trict. One group swam in the moun-
tain lake Pilburger See and did some
mountain climbing.
"July 20: Oetz to Vienna. Stopped
at Salzburg where Mozart was born.
I Visited the cathedral at Vienna, Uni-
versity of Vienna-(law, medicine and
philosophy), 10,000 students, palace of
justice, the Brigitta Family Home (so-
cial center) where 11,000 poor and un-
employed are housed and provided
for by the state until they get jobs.
"July 23-25: At Budapest. Lived
in the dormitory of the Royal Hun-
garian College. Had first roasted
ears of corn in Europe. Swam in the
world famous St. Gellert Pool where
artificial ocean waves are produced.
Saw collapse of a downtown store
building, 35 killed. Our 'group had
been standing on this very corner
only a few minutes before. Had mid-
night ride on the Blue Danube. Saw
change of guards at the Royal Palace.
"July 26: Arrived in Prague. Sokol
Gymnastics Society has its home here.
St. Charles University also, the oldest
university in Europe.
"Must close and go to the reception.
We leave for Dresden July 30. Then
on to Berlin for the Olympic Games
Aug. 1. I am sorry I can not give
you a more detailed description of
the trip so far, but that is impossible
because of the scarcity of time. We
are kept on the go from morning to
night and some of the nights. How-
ever, this has been a wonderful ex-
perience for all of us, something I
would nothave missed for anything
"I am taking movies of everythingl
important so I will be able to revive
the trip to my friends more vividly
when I arrive home. Sail for the
States Aug. 26 from London after
having visited Denmark and Sweden
for a few days after the Olympic
Games. Since Professor Mitchell is
returning on the "Queen Mary" a
week later, I will be in charge of the
group coming back."
Germany ill Stop
Subsidizing Exports
WASHINGTON, Aug. 14.-(M)-The
German government's promise that it
will cease subsidizing exports to this
country resulted today in cancella-
tion of countervailing duties imposed
by the United States a month ago to
offset subsidies then being paid.
The countervailing duties, increas-
ing tariffs on 11 German products,
from 22 to 56 per cent, had been put
into effect by the treasury July 11
to counteract direct and indirect
bounties received by Gerhan manu-
facturers in the Nazi government's
drive to expand its export markets.
Well-informed sources predicted
their removal today would bring Ger-
man-American trade to a higher level.

Kiefer Breaks Backstroke
Record For Americans'
Third Victory

ents of her divers. Miss Mastenbroek,
who also won the 100 meter free
style crown and was runner-up in the
backstroke final, is favored to cop
the 400-meter free style champion-
ship tomorrow.
On the men's side, America's grip
on team honors was rnenaced by the
Tokyo terrors, whose only chance
to overtake the Americans is in the
breast stroke and long free style pull.
With only Johnny Higgins of Provi-
dence opposed to them they appeared
to have the former event well in hand.
But they had a couple of young
men named Jack Medica of Seattle
and Ralph Flanagan of Miami to
contend with in the distance race.
Medica, in fact, looked like he intend-
ed to add the 1,500 crown to his 400-
meter title as he stroked serenely to
victory in his semi-final in faster
time than Noburo Terada of Japan,
19:42.8 to 19:48.6.
While Kiefer's victory was all the
sodden stands could have hope for
as a demonstration of back-stroking
technique, it offered little in the way
of thrills. It was evident since the
first time the long-armed American
entered the pool he-would win as he
About the only kick the crowd got
was the way Kiefer made the turn,
his time-saving under-water somer-
sault bringing a burst of cheering and
gaining him at least a yard on Vande
Weghe and Kiyokawa, who were close
in the running up to that point.
Kiefer's winning time, 1:05.9, mark-
ed the third straight time in two
days he smashed George Kojac's
eight-year-old Olympic record of
1:08.2, and splintered Vande Weghe's
listed world record of 1:07.4. His
first time out he was clocked in 1:06.9.
Timers caught him in 1:06.8 in yes-
terday's semi-final.
There is no camera that will best
serve all purposes. So if you pur-
l chase a type not suited to the work
you are contemplating, you will find
that most of your pictures are like
the situation that I was in yesterday.
So a list of different types and their
differences should be of interest.
The type least used by amateurs is
the View Camera. It is generally
considered as professional equipment.
* It has more adjustments than any
other machine. Focus and composi-
tion are secured on a ground glass. It
takes only plates and cut film, It is
very clumsy and slow, but versatile
in that it has a removable lens board
and will take any type of lens or
shutter. Also its many adjustments
are handy. The better known form
of this class of camera is the Euro-
pean Style Kodak. This camera looks
like a folding Kodak but takes cut-
film plates and filmpack It is fo-
cused on a ground glass like the view
camera, but it has very few of the
adjustments common to the view
Because of its smaller size and
shutter which is usually faster, this
type is easy to handle and works
rapidly. But in addition to the loss
of adjustments found on the view
camera, it very rarely allows for in-
terchanging of lenses or shutters.
The Reflex camera is a rapid ca-

mera similar to the above types. By
placing the ground glass on top and
employing a swinging mirror, it is
possible to have the film at the back
of the camera and ready to be ex-
posed. Focus and composition are
obtained through the mirror and
glass and as soon as the adjustments
are made the release is pressed and
the mirror swings up out of the way.
A modification of this is to use two
lenses, one to shoot through and the
other to focus through. This is a
better method except for certain types
of work which would not tolerate the
parallax created by the different po-
sitions of the two lenses.
Then there is the Miniature ca-
mera, a new type that is rapidly gain-
ing popularity. It is the only type
that is really versatile and still port-

Curtis Returns
From Hawaian
Teaching P o s t
Local Faculty Man Leaves
Mid - Pacific University
After Summer Term
HAWAII, Aug. 14.-(Special to The
Daily)-Dr. Francis D. Curtis, pro-
fessor of secondary education and of
the teaching of science in the Uni-
versity of Michigan, will leave Hawaii
for Michigan on the President Hoo-
ver Aug. 21. Dr. Curtis, who taught
at the University of Hawaii summer
session from June 29 to August 7,
will be accompanied by Mrs. Curtis
and their two daughters, Miss Dor-
othy and Miss Allison. Before re-
turning to the mainland the visitors
will have visited three of the Ha-
waiian islands, Oahu, on which the
University and Honolulu are located,
Maui and Hawaii.
"I was impressed from the begin-
ning of the summer session by the
cordial and friendly spirit of the
faculty and students," Dr. Curtis
said. "There is apparently a fine
courtesy toward the malihini new-
comer and a general desire to make
him feel welcome."
President of the National Associa-
tion for Research ini Science Teaching'
in 1932, Dr. Curtis is also a member
of many societies for the advance-
ment of science and education.
He is author of Introduction to Sci-
ence with O. W. Caldwell, Biology for
Today, Science for Today and other
science text books. Dr. Curtis is de-
partment editor of Science Educa-
The tenth Summer Session of the
mid-Pacific university was attended
by 1,160 students, 155 of them from
the mainland.* The Seminar-Confer-
'ence on Education in Pacific Coun-
tries, held in conjunction with the
summer session, was attended by
outstanding educators and anthro-
pologists from 18 Pacific areas.
able. It doesn't have the adjust-
ments of the view camera, but it has
the ability to take almost any kind
of lens, and it may be adapted for
many special types of work. Its small
negative is a decided disadvantage,
however, as it requires very precise
work to get results. This camera in-
troduced a new method of focusing. It
uses a range finder, which is much
faster and more accurate than the
ground glass.
You should be able to figure out for
yourself the different uses for these
cameras. You wouldn't try to use a
view camera on a job that wouldn't
allow a tripod, and likewise you
wouldn't try to use the miniature for
view camera work.

HOMER, -Mich., Aug. 14.-M)-
Thirteen-year-old Dale Fisher told
police today a match with which he
lit a cigarette started a fire that de-
stroyed the farm home of his par-
ents near here. With his parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Fisher, Dale had
gone to view the ruins of a burned
barn on a neighboring farm. His
mother recalled she left an oil stove
burning, and sent him home to turn
it off. He told officers he seized the
chance to smoke a forbidden cigar-
ette, and that the match he tossed
away ignited dry grass which blazed
up so quickly he could not control it.
He returned to the neighbor's house,
Dale told police, saying nothing to
his parents, who went home later to
find their house destroyed.
