GOLDEN LAKE, Mich., July 10. -
Forty-eight University forestry camp
students here are having a great sum-
mer of it, in spite of recurrent battles
with slash, swamps, streams, mos-
quitoes, and porcupines. Of the na-
tural enemies in the Golden Lake
region, probably No. 1 is the mosquito.
Five times a week the young for-
esters set out to make maps, locate
section corners, and run compass
lines. They leave the camp with arms
bared and axes in hand and their per-
sons la n down with equipment
which .i'ludes canteens dangling
from e , forest service compasses
and Abney levels attached anywhere,:
a surveyor's chain over one shoulder;
and a tatum holder over the other,1
and a Jacob staff in a free hand.
"The boys" are becoming quite pro-
ficient in the use of the axe. Each
man has one. They're more thanj
welcome in this country, where you
must frequently cut your way through<
slash and heavy undergrowth.
Wild life abounds in the vicinity.

Deer are plentiful. Bear tracks (but
not bears) are often seen, and under
cover of darkness armies of porcupines
that populate the Golden Lake area
wreak havoc with leather boots,
clothes, axe handles, or any articles,
in fact, that have carelessly been left
over night. Recently one of the fel-
lows left a shirt in the woods to mark
a spot. Next morning he found that
the porcupines had made a meal of it.
Old timers in the area claim that it
is the wettest summer in "y'ars and
y'ars" and so no forest fires are im-
minent. This is quite a disappoint-
ment to "the boys" who are on razor
edge, as it were, with readiness to fight
any and all fires. One of the courses
being given here this summer deals
with fire fighting.
There is no lack of appetite, no
sleeplessness here. The mountains of
food laid on the rude pine tables dis-
appear as if by magic. The campers
are awakened each morning at 6:10
a.m. by the first bell tolled by Axel,
the cook..

'ench People Regard Himn
As Victim Of 'Atrocious'

PARIS, July 12. -(A) - Lieut.-Col.
Alfred Dreyfus, central figure of
France's notorious military espionage
case that a generation ago aroused
bitter controversy, died today at his
home here. He was 75 years old.
Although vindicated more than 40
years ago of the charges of treason
that sent him to Devil's Island for four
tortured years; the memories of his
tragic life haunted him to the last.
Convicted of selling France's mili-
tary secrets to Germany and held cap-
tive at the penal colony until the
storm of protest moved the French
president to pardon him, he lived
through three tense periods of Franco-
German history the first the
time of his own case at the turn of
the century; the second, the World
War in which he served for France;
the third, the present dispute over
the Reich's rearmament.
Family At His Bedside
Mme. Dreyfus, faithful in her hus-
band's defense through the years, was :
at his bedside with their son and
daughter - Pierre and Jeanne -
when he died. The family had done
all in its power to avoid reviving mem-
ories of 40 years ago, but friends dis-
closed that nightmares of his impris-
onment often woke him from his
x Four years ago the aged Dreyfus,
steadily grow ng blind, suffered gland
trtiAle. - Another severe- attack oc-
curred last year. Since then he has
been almost continually ill.. His death
came at 5 p.m. today. His daugh-i
ter's husband, Dr. Pierre Paul Levy,
attended him in his last illness.
Dreyfus knew that he was dying,t
those at the bedside said, and was(
conscious to the last, though he died{
without speaking. His funeral was
set tentatively for Sunday.
Prison Colony Under Fire c
By ironic coincidence the minister
of colonies, even as Dreyfus lay dying,i
announced disciplinary action againsti
keepers of the French penal colonyf
off French Guinea for laxities, pre-
sumably "pampering" of prisonersF
and perhaps allowing them to escape.
While Dreyfus was there, he was
supposed to have been the colony's
worst treated prisoner, the minister
of justice having ordered especiallyz
severe treatment for him.
The chief interest of the aged re-c
tired officer's last years was his ninec
grandchildren, for whom he collected
stamps tirelessly and supervised
school work. He also dispensed char-
ity to children of the poor.
It had been so long since he sat
in secluded corners of cafes or strolled
through the park near his home that
the slight, unassuming old man was
rarely recognized by post-war Pari-
sians on the rare occasions he ap-
peared in public.
Victim of Conspiracy
Col. Dreyfus was the victim of
what a large part of the French peo-
ple r'egard as one of the most atrocious
conspiracies in the history of their
Although it originated in 1894, the
Dreyfus case, because of its sensa-
tional aspects was kept alive in mem-
ory by the study made of it by suc-
ceeding generations. For 10 years it
shook Prance to its foundations, near-
lrecked the republic, did incalcul-
able harm to the French army and
pust French justice on trial before
the world.

Six flouses To
Be Quizzed On
Their Finances
Fraternities Will Be Asked
To Explain Finances To
University Committee
Six University of Michigan fraterni-
ties will be called before the Univer-
sity Committee on Fraternity Finan-
cial Standards and Exceptions, when
that group meets Monday afternoon,
July 22, Robert C. Briggs of the eco-
nomics department, chairman of the
committee, revealed yesterday.
Those fraternities whom it has been
definitely established will be called,
will be asked to give an explanation
of their financial status for the past
year, and if certain discrepancies are
not satisfactorily explained, the com-
mittee, it is. believed, will close a
number of them.
Mr. Briggs stated that the list of
fraternities which will be called be-
fore the hearing committee is by no
means complete as the accounts of all
the houses have not been thoroughly
checked to date. It is believed that
considerably more than the origina'
six will be called for a hearing.
The names of the fraternities to be
called were not revealed.
The members of the hearing com-
mittee, besides Mr. Briggs, are Prof.
Leigh J. Young of the forestry school,
and Paul R. Kempf.
Failure to hand in suitable monthly
accounts, it is believed, will be the rea-
son why many houses will be called
for hearings, while failure to meet the
University rule that no fraternity shall
have accounts receivable amounting to
more than $200 and unpaid accounts
amounting to $500, will be another
cause for a house being called on "the

Of Consul Is Arrested

Adua For Selling Food
To Italian Consulate
ROME, July 12. - (') - The Italian
government made ready tonight to
investigate fully the circumstances
of the arr est at Gondar, Ethiopia of
Signor Raffaele Di Lauro, wife of the
Italian consul, and her reported de-
tention for two days.
Official circles predicted another
vigorous protest similar to the many
Italy has presented in recent months.
The official communique, which re-
ported also the arrest of some serv-
ants of the Italian military attache
of Addis Ababa, indicated these de-
tentions would furnish further mo-
tives for energetic protests.
Italy Will Wait
However, an official spokesman de-
clared the new incidents, like those
reported to have occurred at Harrar,
Ethiopia, several days ago, would not
stampede ,taly intorherhcampaign
against Ethiopia before she felt en-
tirely ready.
The press published reports of the
fresh incidents with bitter comment
to the effect that the hostile attitude
toward Italy throughout the Ethiopian
empire was being demonstrated more
and more clearly.

said Signora Di Lauro was stopped by
Ethiopian soldiers outside Gondar as
she was en route to Eritera, Italian
colony, and that she was held for two

WASHINGTON, July 12. -- (A) -
In the midst of world concern over
the threat of war between Italy and
Ethiopia, Secretary of State Cordell
Hull said today that the United States
and other nations are interested in
maintenance of the Kellogg-Briand
peace pact and the sanctity of inter-
national commitments for the promo-
tion of peace.
Setting forth the United States'
position regarding the Italo-Ethiopian
controversy, he issued a formal state-
ment in response to newspapermen's
"The Pact of Paris is no less bind-
ing now than when it was entered into
by the 63 nations that are parties to
it," he said. "By form and designa-
tion it constitutes a treaty by and

"It is a declaration by the govern-
ments of the world that they condemn
