TAWAS CITY, Mich., July 3.-UP)
-Sheriff John Moran anhounced evi-
dence tonight that at least part of
the mutilation of the body of 10-
year-old Bobby Kenyon occurred af-
ter his lifeless form was tossed into
the Augres River where it was found
last Saturday.
Dr. John C. Bugher, University of
Michigan pathologist, reported to the
sheriff and to State Police that ex-
amination of the intestines of a large
snapping turtle taken from a deep
river pool near where the boy's body
was recovered, showed.:
A section of bone missing from the
boy's neck; fragments of human hair
and flesh, and a piece of Bobby's
shirt. .
The sheriff and Detective Sergeant
Philip L. Hutson of State Police said
they retained their belief the boy was
slain and his ears and tongue severed
by a sharp instrument wielded by the
killer. The youngster disappeared a
week ago Monday from the home of
his uncle and aunt where he had been
University hospital pathologists
yesterday added another angle to
their already extensive laboratory in-
vestigation of the murder of 10-year-
old Robert Kenyon near Tawas last
week when they began an "autopsy"
yesterday on several large snapping
turtles killed by officers in a pool of
the Au Gres River, near which the
body wa found.
Try To Find Ears
Aim of the investigation was to
see if the stomach contents of the
turtles would reveal the slain boy's
ears, missing from the body when it
was found on the river bank just .be-
low the pool last Saturday.
Already under analysis by the
scientists are. the boy's body and
clothing, together with water speci-
mens from all water supplies near
the scene of the crime. Dr. John C.
Bugher, hospital pathologist, and Dr.
Carl Weller, head of the department
of pathology, have been making a
microscopic and chemical analysis of
the boy's body since Sunday, and
their final report is expected in the
near future by authorities in charge
of the investigation.
Sent To Moran
The water specimens were sent
here by Sheriff Moran of Iosco Coun-
ty reportedly to see "if anything from
the stream could have gotten into
the boy's body," but caused officers
here to see a left-handed parallel to
the similar slaying of Julius Streich-
er, nine years old, in Ypsilanti March
7 last year, when the investigation
of the crime received a set-back
through destruction of the clothing.
A Ypsilanti undertaker burned the
clothing before the water in it could
be analyzed to show whether it had
come from the Huron River, on whose
bank the body was found, or if the
boy might have been immersed or
drowned in city water instead.
The clothing in the Kenyon case
is also being microscopically analyzed

for bloodstains. Blood left on the
clothing from the killer's hands
might, according to the pathologists,
have been washed away in the five-
day immersion the body is thought to
have had, but heavier stains from
the boy's slashed throat would prob-
ably be revealed by microscopic ex-

Against Browns
Gehringer's Hitting Leads
Way To Detroit Triumph
Over St. Louis, 9-4
ST. LOUIS, July 3. -(P)- The
rampaging Tigers, led by the heavy
hitting of Charlie Gehringer, mauled
the St. Louis Browns 9 to 4 today
for their seventh straight victory.
Gehringer slammed out a first-in-
ning home run with Jack Burns on
base, and added a double and a single
in four trips to the plate. Burns,
traded by the Browns to the Tigers
for Elon Hogsett when Hank Green-
berg was injured, got a double and
two singles, and Marvin Owen three
singles. ,
Roxie Lawson, who has appeared
in more games this season than any
other Detroit hurler, mostly in a re-
lief role, went the route despite four
shaky innings, and won his third
The triumph trimmed the New
York Yankee's lead in the league to
ten games, and strengthened the
Tigers' hold on second place with a
half-game lead over the idle Wash-
ington Senators.
The Tigers raked Les Tiete, Russ
Van Atta and Glenn Liebhardt, St.
Louis pitchers, for sixteen hits, build-
ing up an early lead which the Browns'
never were able to match.
Gehringer's circuit smash to the
top of the right field pavilion scor-
ing Burns who had doubled started
the Detroit team off to victory in the
first inning. Charlie brought in an-
other run in the third with his double
after rogell had singled.
Bejama's error accounted for an-
other Tiger run in the fifth. Geh-
ring'er cracked out his third hit, and
Goslin walked. Clift took Walker's
grounder and threw Goslin out at
second, but when Bejama tried for a
double play he threw over Bottom-
ley's head and Gehringer streaked
The Browns countered with another
run on Lary's triple and Clift's infield
out, in their half of the inning.
Van Atta took up the hurling duties
for the Browns in the sixth and re-

The fourth inter-departmental de-'

versity will get under way next fail
with a prescribed course offered in
the field of religion and ethics.
In response to a demand for a
program of study which would en-

related subjects hasjust been com-
Prof. Leroy Waterman of the de-
partment of oriental languages and
literature, chairman of the adminis-
trative committee and one of the pro-
moters of the plan, reported in an in-
terview yesterday. that one of the
reasons for the adoption of the
course iles in the "opprobrium of ir-
religiousness" or "God-lessness"
which has somehow attached itself,
to the University.
Students may enter the program
after having completed two years
work, or 60 hours credit with at least
as many honor points as hours. A
reading knowledge of French or Ger-
man or the equivalent of two years of
Latin in college are required, and
Philosophy 31 or 32 and Psychology
31 are strongly recommended.
The degree program is divided into
three groups, and students are re-
quired to complete a minimum of 15
hours from courses in each group.
The first group bears upon religion
as an aspect of civilization, the sec-
ond upon religion as an aspect of
thought and the third upon religion
as an aspect of social relationships
and institutions. Subjects are drawn
from the departments of anthropol-
ogy, Greek, history, Oriental lan-

Shull Continues
LectureS e rie s
Here Next Week
'Lore of Tree Rings And
Sun Spots To Be Topic
Of Zoologist
"Trees, Sun Spots, and History"
will be the first of the Summer Ses-
sion lecture series to be given next
week, and will be delivered by Prof.
A. Franklin Shull of the zoology de-
partment at 5 p.m. Monday in the
Natural Science Auditorium.
Professor Shull is expected to dis-
cuss tree rings as indicative of the
climatic conditions which the trees
studied have undergone in their
growth. Professor Shull said last
night that by the study of rings in
trees one could tell fairly accurately
the nature of the seasons during the
lifetime of the trees. This is being
done to a great extent in the south-
western regions, he said.
To Discuss Sun Spots
The cyclical fluctuations of sun
spots, and their relation to rainfall
will also be discussed by Professor
Shull. The historical aspect will come
into Professor Shull's talk in the dis-
cussion of old log structures that can
be studied for the rings contained
in- the logs. By careful scrutiny of
the rings in the logs, the date when
the structures were built can be ascer-
Tuesday the Summer Session lec-
ture will be given by Prof. Edward B.
Reuter of the sociology department
of theUniversity of Iowa. Professor
Reuter's subject will be "The Decline
in Population Growth."
"The Common Cold" will be the

topic of Wednesday's lecture and will
be given by Dr. Nelson G. Smillie, pro-
fessor of Public Health Administra-
tion at Harvard University. Professor
Smillie will describe the importance
of the common cold in the daily lives
of everyone. He is giving courses
in Community Health Problems and
Public Health Law and Administra-
tion during the Summer Session.
Greene To Lecture
Prof. Edward B. Greene of the psy-
chology department of the University
will describe the advancement being
- made in the various stages of applica-
r tion of mental measurement in the
1 lecture on Thursday.
In a statement to The Daily last
, night, Professor Greene said that
rapid advancement is being made at
f--- n Vacntt ime in mental measure-

psychology and the School of Educa-
The primary purpose of the de-c
gree program, according to Professor
Waterman, is to give students a
chance, now now available, to study
the subjects of religion and ethics in
a scientific, comprehensive manner.
No additional subjects have been1
addedutothose now available in the
various departments of the Univri
ty, but an organization of existing.t
subjects has been perfected in thist
program so as to guide students in
the development of a more adequate
conception of religion.
At one time the University hada1
temporary School of Religion, but
this existed only for a short time and1
did not prove overly successful. The
only other inter-departmental de-
gree programs now provided by the I
University include those in Americant
culture, urban and rural communi-
ties and Oriental civilization. 1
The whole idea of such programs
has developed only within the last1
few years, Professor Waterman said,
and those now in operation are de-
veloping slowly. Professor Waterman
expects additional inter-departmen-
tal programs to be worked out in the
near future.

Peso,'Dark Horse
Rattlesnake,' Wins
Derby By A Fang
CARLSBAD, N. M., July 3.-(P)-
The "world's first rattlesnake derby"
came close to being the last today
as Peso, strictly a "dark horse," came
through a free-for-all fight to win
by a fang.
Amid the whirr of rattles and the
shouts of "foul" the slendeir young
diamond-backed entry slid across the
finish line to victory in the slow time
of six minutes fiat.
The triumphi was worth $500 to
Peso's backer, Jack Chaney, of El
Paso, Texas. Merwin Campbell, rac-
ing steward, overruled protests of
three owners that Peso had slain
their entrants in the wild, writhing
Among the victims of the event to-
day was Buttercup, a scaly 12-rat-
tled veteran that had been a post-
time favorite. Buttercup who, his
owner, claimed, had astrain of blue-
racer in its bloodlines, was mortally
injured at the start and had to be
exterminated. Whether he was the
victim of the one-button colt Peso,
could not be immediately determined.
Steward Campbell jumped into the
racing arena at the start to disen-
tangle the combatants-only to leap
out as promptly.
The event was marked by the com-
plete breakdown of broadcasting at-
tempts. The unruly Peso, \still full
of fight, coiled and struck the "mike"
with his fangs, shattering the delic-
ate membrane.
