M.S.C. Heads
May Organize
Crime School
State Crime Commission
Asks For Curriculum In
Police Education
LANSING, June 26. -(P) - Mich-
igan State College deans listened to-
day to a proposal from the state crime
commission that a scientific man-
hunting school be established in East
Dean R. C. Huston, of the applied
science division, will head the group
of four deans who will confer with a
sub-committee of the crime commis-
sion appointed by Attorney General
Harry S. Toy. Commissioner Oscar
S. Olander, who suggested the idea
originally, will attend.
The members of the sub-committee
are former State Senator Herbert P.
Orr, of Caro; Jay W. Linsey, of Grand
Rapids; Harry G. Gault of Flint. The
conference is designed to draft a ten-
tative curriculum for the proposed
school, which will be submitted to the
state board of agriculture, governing
body of the college, July 8.
Orr, who is vice chairman of the
crime commission and who has served
as a member since 1931, outlined his
idea for a curriculum today.
"I believe every student enrolled
should have a basic education," he
said. "He should live at the state
police barracks in East Lansing while
undergoing the usual intensive train-
ing given recruits, specializing in fin-
ger printing, a study of the police
radio and practical pistol marksman-
"At the college he should be taught
a smattering 'of psychology, psychiat-
ry, sociology and given intensive
training in criminal evidence and
criminal law."
Dean Huston believes each student
in the proposed scientific crime detec-
tion course should be required to take
four years of military training. He
would demand completion of a four-
year academic course leading to a
bachelor of science degree.
Glowing Account
Of Pioneer Town
Given By Hopkins
WASHINGTON, June 26 - (') --
A picture of Alaskan "pioneering"
with railroad service, radios, a hos-
pital and a laden commissary today
represented Harry L. Hopkins' reply
to charges that the Matanuska Valley
was a nest of disease' and discontent.
The FERA administrator put his
case before the Senate in a report
submitted at the request of Senator
Arthur H. Vandenberg, Michigan Re-
publican, who had assailed the Alas-
kan colonization as a "crazy experi-
ment." Vandenberg read to the Sen-
ate telegramscharging that disease
and discontent were prevalent at the
Palmer colony.
Hopkins conceded that construction
was about three weeks behind sched-
ule, but presented as part of his re-
port a telegram from Administrator
Irwin of the colony explaining that
225 more men were being rushed in
to help with construction to provide
homes for the colonists by winter.

This horse tennis is a simple game,
invented by the congressmen. It is
played on a court with a carpenter's
wooden horse in place of a net. The
ball, which weighs five pounds, is put
into play by a plump gentleman who
bends over, picks it up, and heaves it
over the horse to another gentleman
who must wait until it bounces before
he can return the play.

South African
Grows Drouth
Immune Maize
Expected To Revolutionize
Maize Growing In Areas
Of LightRainfall
PRETORIA, Union of South Africa,
June 26-(P)-The production of a
new type of drouth resistant maize
of prolific yield has been announced
The new maize, named the Mor-
genster Marvel, is the product of four
years' patient cross-breeding between
Wisconsin white maize and American
flint white maize.
S. W. Morkel, known as the North-
ern Transvaal's largest maize grow-
er, is responsible for the production
of this new type, which experts state
is likely to revolutionize maize grow-
ing in South Africa, and particularly
in uncertain rainfall areas.
Grain Proves Heavier
Unlike the Wisconsin and the
American. flint, the progenitors of the
new maize, which are normally grad-
ed by the elevator system as threes,
the new maize is readily accepted as
flat white twos in elevators.
Features claimed for the new type
of maize are its extraordinary drouth
resistant powers and the heavy weight
of grain: a crop of 9,760 bags reaped
from 700 acres averaged 239 /2 pounds
a bag, as against the standard weight
of 203 pounds.
The excessive hardness of the usual
flint mealie for milling purposes,
which has hitherto made flint maize
unpopular, with consequent lower
values, is not apparent in the new
breed of maize. The cobs are of an
average length of 12 inches, while
the grain is slightly larger than the
ordinary Wisconsin wide.
Does Not Revert To Type
Experiments over a number of
farms on large scale planting during
the past two years have demonstrated
'that the new maize does not revert to
type as in the case of normal cross
A typical example of the drouth-
resisting powers of the new maize is
to be seen on Morkel's farm, where
the new maize is yielding, under ex-
cessive drouth conditions, slightly
over six bags to the acre, while other
types planted at the same time and
under identical conditions are scarce-
ly producing one bag an acre.
