- (Special) -The eighth annual vis-
itor's day will be held at the Uni-
versity Biological Station here from
2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4.
On this yearly occasion the station
opens its principal buildings to the
public and puts on display various ex-
hibits of plants and animals of north-
ern Michigan. Types of class work
in which the students are engaged
and scientific investigations now in
progress are also to be open for in-

The station is located on the south-
east shore of the lake in Cheboygan
County, on the old Cheboygan-Pe-
toskey trail, 13 miles from Cheboygan.
The roads from Cheboygan, Topina-
bee, and Pellston will be well posted
with signs directing visitors to the
Station grounds. There will be plen-
ty of room to park, help in parking,
guide service, and free admission to
all places of interest.
The station was founded in 1909 to
give instruction and to conduct in-
vestigations dealing with plants and
animals. This, the 27th session, has
the second largest enrollment in the
history of the station with 104 reg-
istered students, a far cry from the
early eras when at times there were
as few as 13 students. The 104 stu-
dents this summer include 56 men
and 48 women, a definite indication
that the station is not a girl's camp,
as is sometimes believed. Eighty-two
students this summer are graduates
and 22 are undergraduates. Forty-
three are teachers in schools or col-
leges during the winter.
Michigan Men Attend
More students come from Michi-
gan than from any other one state,
as might be expected. However,
Michigan students compose less than
one-third of the student body, the
others being scattered over 24 states.
Besides the 29 students from Michi-
gan, there are 13 from Ohio, 9 from
'Illinois, 7 from New York, 5 from In-
diana, 4 each from Pennsylvania and
Wisconsin, 3 each from Florida, Kan-
sas, MassachusettsMinnesota, and
Oklahoma, 2 each from Alabama,
Iowa, Missouri, New Jersey, and South
Dakota, and 1 each from California,
Connecticut, Maryland, Nebraska,
South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and
Although teaching has had an im-
portant place in the station's pro-
gram, much attention has also been
given to the study of special biological
problems. These studies result in the
publication of 15 to 30 scientific re-
ports every year which have a world-
wide distribution to libraries and
biologists. About 350 such reports on
the plants and animals of the Doug-
las Lake region have been published
since the station was found.
Eleven visiting investigators are
working on various biological prob-
lems this summer. They are Dr.
Alma Ackley of Wayne University;
Dr. James T. Culbertson, Columbia
University; Dr. Henry Allen Gleason,
of the New York Botanical Gardens;
Dr. S. Benton Talbot, Davis and El-
kins College; Dr. George C. Wheeler,
University of North Dakota; Dr. W.
E. Swales and Dr. Dorothy E. Swales,
McGill University; and Dr. Maurice
W. Senstius and Dr. Donald M. Mil-
ler, University of Michigan.
All of last year's faculty members
have returned for this summer. In
fact ,the same faculty has worked
together for five season, and a few
members have given over 20 years of
service to the station. Seven of the
staff are regular members of the
University faculty: George R. LaRue,
professor of zoology and Director of
the station; Alfred H. Stockard, as-
sistant professor of zoology, secretary
Paul S. Welch, professor of zoology;
John H. Ehlers and Carl D. La Rue,
associate professors of botany; Frank
N. Blanchard, associate professor of
zoology; and Frank E. Eggleston, as-
sistant professor of zoology.
Six of the staff come from other
institutions. They are Frank C.
Gates, professor of botany in Kansas
State College; George E. Nichols,
professor of botany and head of the
botany department at Yale Uni-
versity; Herbert B. Hungerford, pro-
fessor of entomology and head of
the department of entomology at the
University of Kansas; William W.
Court, professor of helminthology and
head of the department of helmin-
thology at the School of Hygiene and
Public Health, Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity; Charles W. 'Creaser, profes-
sor of zoology and chairman of the
department of biology in Wayne Uni-

opponent should be Schmeling. Louis
will knock Schmeling out easier than
he did Camera. After that Louis
should fight Baer. The negro might
flatten the big loud-speaker, but
there'd be plenty of action there.
Baer in with a puncher is an en-,
tirely different fellow from Baerj
against a boxer. It wasn't difficult to
pick Braddock to beat Baer because
Baer has been a chump for every
boxer he ever fought. He hit Ernie
Schaaf once in 20 rounds, and he
didn't hit Loughranhat all in 10.
But against a hitter, where he
can stand and slug, Baer is still con-
siderable of a prize fighter. That
kind of fight doesn't take long to
decide. It doesn't call for thenstam-
ina that goes into 15 rounds of careful
battle. Baer's iron jaw stands him
in good stead there. And he can
still hit, if he can only get someone
to hold still for him long enough.
Beware The Kingfish
For these reasons, then, the pro-
gram should be Louis against Schmel-
ing, to give the Negro a little more
of the experience he needs, then Louis
against Baer. Out of the latter fight
should come a natural challenger for
Unless Louis keeps fighting regular-
ly, gaining experience, Braddock will
beat him next year. I think that
Braddock would prove entirely too
smart for the Negro right now. Don't
forget, that no matter how hard a
man can punch, it doesn't do him
any good if he isn't hitting anything;
Baer found that out with Braddock.
And in the meantime, Louis faces
the toughest fight of his life with

Hold Slayer Of
Confessed Murderer Tells
Of Firing Six Shots Into
LANSING, Kas., July 29. -(P) -
Three men accused of murder, two
abductions and scores of robberies
were held here today and Major
Wint Smith, highway patrol com-
mandant, said one of them had con-
fessed to the brutal slaying of De-
vere Wygeant, 22-year-old Saginaw,
Mich., youth early this month.
Major Smith said that John Meade,
19, of Sioux City, Ia., had named
Howard Vernon, 27, of Fairbury, Neb.,
as the man who fired eight bullets in-
to Wygeant's body because he would
not surrender the keys to his auto-
Meade, Vernon and Larry Kruse,
of Sioux City, Ia., were arrested yes-
terday after a three-weeks pursuit
by officers armed with machine guns
who suspected that the fugitives were
members of the Alvin Karpis gang.
They have not, however, been identi-
fied as a participant in any of Karpis'
Refuses Car Keys
Major Smith quoted Meade as say-
ing that he and Vernon had aban-
doned a stolen automobile and were
walking along a highway near Sag-.
inaw, Mich., in search of another
when they came upon two men seated
in a parked car. The men were
Wygeant and John Jeske, of Saginaw.
"We asked for a lift," continued
Meade's confession as related by
Smith they said 'no.'
"Vernon asked them for the keys.
The man at the wheel wouldn't give
them to him. Then he got out and
walked down the road, with the car
keys in his hand. Vernon shot him six
times in the legs, gee, how that guy
could take it. It didn't seem to faze
"He came back to the car and
reached for a tire tool. Vernon's gun
was empty. He took mine, Vernon
busted another cap and the bullet
tore into the guy's chest, but he didn't
"Even Vernon was amazed. He fired
again and the bullet went through
the man's stomach.
"He said, 'please don't shoot any
more, I'm tired.
"He handed Vernon the keys and
fell beside the pavement."
Major Smith and Meade told him
the second occupant of the automo-
bile ran when the first shot was fired
and that after Wygeant had fallen,
Meade and Vernon drove away in the
automobile. Meade said he and Ver-
non drank some whiskey they found
in the automobile before departing.
Died In Hospital
Wygeant died ten days later in a
Bay City hospital.
The automobile was found the next
day in Saginaw. A car stolen that
day in Saginaw was found last week
in a small Kansas town.
Major Smith said the desperadoes
robbed at least 90 gasoline stations on
their wild flight westward after the
slaying. Vernon, he said, had been an
inmate of at least three prisons.
The three were identified, Smith
said, as the kidnapers of W. E. Grog-
man, Kansas City grain salesman,
who was left bound and gagged near
Herkimer, Kas., after his car and
$20 were taken from him.
Smith said the three were impli-'
cated in the abduction last week of
Marshal Charles E. Mack at Hooper,
Neb., during another auto theft, and
said they had robbed a bank Thurs-
day at Sergeant Bluff, Iowa.
At Fairbury a few days ago Smith
said Vernon had confronted the sher-
iff, who was seeking him for parole
violation, and threatened him. This
incident led to a flurry over the re-
ported presence in the vicinity of
Alvin Karpis, current national "Pub-
lic Enemey No. 1."
The patrol chief said Meade and
Kruse likely will be held in Kansas
for trial on charges of highway rob-
bery, for which they may receive
sentences up to life upon conviction.

Don Irwin To
Colonists In Matanuska
Threaten To Leave If
Change Is Made
ANCHORAGE, Alaska, July 29. -
(P) - Irate at reports that Don Irwin
may be withdrawn as head of the
Matanuska colony farm division, a
large number of colnists have threat-
ened to quit the project, visitors from
the Matanuska valley reported here
The colonists were circulating a
round-robin petition that Irwin be
retained at Palmer.
Irwin was "loaned" to the colony
by the Alaska university agricultural
extension service when selected mid-
westerners were taken off relief rolls
and brought north to undertake farm-
ing under government supervision in
the Matanuska valley.
The report that roused the colon-
ists was that Irwin would return to
his old post this fall as head of the
experimental farm of the government
and the Alaska university.
Not content with conditions in the
colony, several families have left for
their homes, and the possibility that
Irwin will return to his old duties
as soon as the colony is settled caused
new dissatisfaction over the week-

word today from project officials on
their offer to accommodate the col-

children will be instructed in the Wa-

cause of the abandonment of plans
to finish a large central school at
the colony capital, Palmer, this fall.
It was found impossible to complete
the central school and do the more
pressing work of finishing farm
houses, a hospital, warehouse and
other structures before winter, too.
Work on the farm houses is pro-
gressing rapidly and foundations are
being laid at Palmer for the hospital,
warehouse and smaller central build-
