Japanese Delay,
Commitment On
Naval Policies
Decision On Washington
Pact Is Postponed For.
Three Months
TOKIO, July 25. - (P) - Although
powerful influences are at work to
commit the government to a policy
of denunciation of the Washington
naval treaty, Japan's decision on the
question will be postponed until re-
sults of preliminary conversation in
London, to be resumed in October,
are made clear.
. A high government spokesman told
the Associated Press this today.
There has been a strenuous contest
on this issue with Admiral Minco
Osumi, minister of the navy, and Koki
Hirofa, foreign minister, as the prin-
cipal contestants, but a three-months
true has been reached.
Accept Smaller Tonnage
The newspaper Nichi Nichi and
others today said the government
has decided the treaty, under which
Japan accepted a smaller tonnage
than Great Britain and the United
States, must be abrogated. Hirota, the
aid, has succumbed to Osumi's verbal
hammering on the point.
But the spokesman said these re-
ports were untrue.
Osumi, with the powerful backing of
the navy, it was learned, is insisting
that the cabinet agree on denuncia-
tion and that Japan's decision to this
effect be published to the world even
before the date for formal notice is
required, Dec. 31.
Okata Supports Hirota
Hirota has contended that it will
be time enough to decide whether to
denounce the treaty after October
conversations indicate the chances of
other powers agreeing to a revision of
treaties and conceding Japan's es-
sential demands. ,
Premier Keisuke Okada, it was
understood, supported Hirota, gaining
for him the. three-month standoff.
During this time Hirota will at-
tempt to make the navy's demands
more reasonable and more in line with
possible agreements at the 1935 naval
A foreign office spokesman said
Tokio has won the United States and
Great Britain over to her stand that
political questions be excluded from
the discussion at the conference.

John Dillinger, Sr., claims Body Of His Son

-Associated Press Photo
It was a hot and tiresome 250 miles for an aged man to travel
from Mooresville, Ind., to Chicago, but John W. Dillinger, Sr., made it
to claim the body of his son, the nation's No. 1 criminal, killed by
Federal agents. The father is shown with the outlaw's half-brother, Hu-
bert Dillinger, before starting their homeward journey.
Crude Camera May End Doubt
AS To Who Took First Picture

SFARMVILLE, Va., July 25. -(P) -
A crude camera found at Hampden-
Sydney college here may settle the
doubt as to who took the first photo-
graph of a living person.
Records now disagree, pointing to
three persons: Susse, a Frenchman;
Samuel F. B. Morse, "of telegraphic
'fame, and Prof. J. W. Draper, an
American educator.
Professor Draper was at New York
,university medical college in 1839
when he took a photograph of his
sister, Miss Dorothy Catherine Draper,
who had to sit rigid 10 minutes, the
records state.
Draper and Morse collaborated in
this same year and Morse afterward
said he did . not know whether he
or Draper took the first portrait. Some
of the records indicate that the
Frenchman was earlier than either of
The records recently turned up at
Hampden-Sydney antedate all three.
They only indicate, however, that
Draper may have taken the first pic-
tures here. He was chemist and mm-


amp ews

The final examination in Fire Pre-
vention and Control marked the close
of the first half of the Summer Ses-
sion at the Forestry Camp Filibert
Roth here on the Hiawatha National
Forest near Munising.
The close of the first four-week
term also ended Prof. Leigh J. Young's
stay in camp. Previous to his de-
parture last Monday morning Pro-
fessor Young announced his, inten-
tion of spending the next few weeks
on Sugar Island, which is one of the
St. Mary's River group, looking after
his, t i m b e r - thinning experiments
Prof. Donald M. Matthews, who is
replacing Professor Young, and who
will teach Forest Reconnaissance dur-
ing the second half of the Summer
Session, reached camp last Saturday
afternoon after driving from New
Haven, Connecticut, where his sut-.
mer cottage is located. Work in For-
est Reconnaissance began Monday
for the entire camp, as all students
are required to take the course.
Introducing a forest activity en-
tirely new to many of the men here
in camp, Prof. Robert Craig, Jr., camp
director, last Thursday demonstrated
to the class in Forest Mensuration
some of the more elementary points
in trail construction through tim-
bered land. Each member of the
class was required to build some part
of the road leading from camp to a
square mile of virgin beech, birch,
maple, and hemlock timber, which
is to be the scene of a detailed cruis-
ing and mapping project constituting
a part of the laboratory work for this
Two students in the Forestry Col-
lege during the last session, Morton
Goetting of Rio Grande, Ohio, and
Roland Wilson of Detroit, were week-
end visitors in Camp Filibert Roth.
Both men were employed by the For-
est Service in its land acquisition pro-
gram, being located on the Nicolet
National Forest in eastern Wiscon-
Week-end camping trips, as usual,
claimed the attention of many of
the students, who took advantage of
the lull in class work following the
close of the first term. Willard Hilde-
brand of Saginaw, Carl Burgtorf of
Cheboygan, Frank Van Alsburg of
Holland, and Ken Faber of Chicago
chose the beautiful Beaver Lake
country for their outing ground.
They reported seeing six deer and
several families of beavers on the
trip, and in addition caught enough
small-mouthed black bass to supply
the camp larder. Their report on the
timber and scenic attractions of the
area was a high point in camp last
Runldav night.

Medicine To
Be Subject Of
Public Debate
"Socialized Medicine," is to be the
topic for an exhibition debate, open
to the public, to be held at 10 a.m. to-
morrow in room 1035, Angell Hall.
The debate, between two experi-
enced orators, is planned as an ob-
ject lesson for students of the sub-
ject. The general public is invited,
according to Prof. Gail E. Densmore
of the speech department.
The participants are to be Charles
N. Hill and Gordon F. Fisher.
Mr. Hill graduated from Michigan
State College with an A.B. degree
and then taught for some years at
Grayling and Kingston. He has en-
tered teams in the Michigan Forensic
League and is now doing graduate
work in the speech department here.
Mr. Fischer also received his A.B.
degree from Michigan State College
and was College Orator in 1932. In
addition, he participated in varsity
debating. Last year he taught in
Imlay City, and is now doing graduate
work in the speech department.
Third Women's Picnic
Swim To fle Tomorrow
The department of physical educa-
tion for women is conducting the
third picnic swim tomorrow after-
noon, leaving Barbour Gymnasium at
5:45 p.m.
The group has obtained the priv-
ilege of swimming in the pool at the
Intramural Building, which women
have not been allowed to use before.
Afterwards the group will go to the
Women's Athletic Building for supper
to be served on the terrace.
The fee for the swim will be 10
cents and for the supper 25 cents.
Women students may attend either
one or the other or both. Reservations
must be made by noon Friday in room
15, Barbour Gymnasium.
SEATTLE, Wash., July 25.- (IP) -
,Superior Judge Roscoe R. Smith or-
dered Mrs. Viena K. Fellows, 20 years
old, to pay $20 a month toward sup-
port of her child, Barbara Mary, 3,
after awarding custody of the child
to the husband, Clifford Fellows, a
signal corps wireless operator.

erologist at Hampden-Sydney college
from 1836 to 1839.
About two years ago the late J. H.
C. Bagby, professor of physics at
Hampden-Sydney, showed Howard C.
Cobbs, a student and photographer, a
box-like contraption which upon in-
vestigation proved to be a crude cam-
era. It was discovered that the box
was left at Hampden-Sydney by Dr.
Draper when he went to New York.
Without adding anything except
a modern film, Cobb took photo-
graphs with what is possibly the
world's oldest camera. This camera
had a hand shutter, trap-door ar-
rangement, and its speed depended
on how fast this shutter could be
operated. Draper did not have the
advantages of modern photographic
plates and films, but the principle of
his camera was so nearly correct that
good results were obtained.
Draper apparently experimented
with copper plates, probably making
pictures on this medium. In the lab-
oratory with the camera, which ap-
parently remained untouched for 85
years, were found a number of these

They will ride on upstream to the
base of the Whirlpool, where the
water pours in and runs out again,
and will also make a stop at the
Whirlpool Rapids, where 1,500,000
gallons of water each minute -are
f forced through a channel only about
1400 feet wide and 35 feet deep. As a
result, the water speeds up to 25 miles
an hour, and rushing over the rocks
in the Rapids, jumps to a height
of as much as 15 feet.
To Stop At Power Station
Passing under the two railroad
bridges over the Upper Gorge, the
car line rises from the Gorge, and runs
past the Niagara Falls Power Com-
pany. Here a stop will be made while
the party visits the Schoellkopf Sta-
This is the largest single power
plant of Niagara Hudson, the world's
greatest electric power system. Guides
of the plant will conduct all those
making the Gorge trip through the
plant without additional charge. All
machinery will be shown during the
tour, including the great single tur-
bines of 70,000 horsepower.
After dinner, the party will walk
over to Goat Island from the hotel
to see the illumination of both Falls
from the very edge of the cataracts.
The first illumination of the Falls was
begun in 1907.
In May, 1925, the present illumina-
tion was installed. It consists of a
battery of searchlights mounted near
Table Rock, casting beams totaling
1,340,000,000 candle power, and re-
quires 400 horsepower to operate. It is
operated by a board composed of of-
ficials of cities on both sides of the
Prospect Point Optional
Any who wish may go to Prospect
Point at the edge of the American
Falls, and take the elevator to the
ledge below which serves as a landing
platform for the "Maid of the Mist."
Boats by this name have been mak-
ing the trip out into the Falls pool
and into the spray since 1846, and
in 1861 one of them went safely
through the rapids to Lewiston. It
will also be possible to make the trip
Sunday Morning.
Sunday morning those who wish to
make the aerial flight over the Gorge
will go to the Canadian side of the
Peace Bridge, where buses from the
Canadian Airways field will pick them
up. The flights will be made by parties
of eight, with Professor Hobbs ac-
companying each group. The plane
will fly down the Gorge several miles
beyond Lewiston and return.
Sunday at 1:30 p.m. the party will
leave Niagara, arriving at Welland
an hour later. There will probably
be time to examine the locks there
before the group boards the train
which returns them to Ann Arbor
at 11:29 p.m.
The fourth and concluding article
tomorrow will deal with the geological
and political history of the Falls.

French Cabinet
Crisis Averted
By Doiimer ue
Returns From Interrupted
Vacation And Ends Strife
By Threat To Resign
PARIS, July 25.- (P) - France had
a three months' political reprieve to-
day as Premier Gaston Doumergue re-
sumed an interrupted vacation with
the cabinet crisis solved.
Doumergue's threat to resign and
let the politicians fight their own
battles again saved the "political
truce" government. The cabinet will
be maintained unimpaired after yes-.
terday's showdown.
Tension was so great that the
premier embraced the two central
figures in the controversy. Edouard
Herriot and Andre Tardieu, and all
ministers accepted Doumergue's ulti-
matum that the truce must be con-
tinued or "another ministry must be
formed with another premier."
He so presented the situation that
seven radical Socialists, headed by
Herriot, were obliged to assume the
responsibility for any rupture.
The premier refused to accept Tar-
dieu's resignation and told the others
if they refused to remain the cabinet
would be wrecked.
Radical Socialists had demanded
Tardieu's dismissal after charges and
counter-charges fled in connection
with an investigation of the Stavisky
pawnshop scandal.
Doumergue is getting back to his
garden at Tournefeuille as soon as

Heads Convene
Famous Speakers Are To
Address Two-Day Parley
Of Governors
-The governors of 16 states will meet
in this northwoods resort today for
the annual governors' conference, a
two-day session, devoted to discus-
sions of state and federal affairs and
the relations between the two units.
Chief among the speakers who have
been invited to participate in the con-
ference are Joseph B. Keenan, of the
United States attorney general's of-
fice, famed for his prosecutions of
kidnaping rings; Joseph H. Choate,
chief of the federal alcohol control
administration, and Charles F. Ket-
tering of Detroit, widely known re-
search engineer.
Taxes, state and federal, is one
of the prime topics for the conven-
tiontion, along with discussion of co-
operation between the Federal gov-
ernment and the states.
The party of state executives ex-
pected to attend the conferences in-
cludes William A. Comstock, of Mich-
igan; Paul V. McNutt, of Indiana;
Henry Horner, of Illinois; W. L. Cross,
of Connecticut; Clyde L. Herring, of
Iowa; A. M. Landon, of Kansas; Floyd
B. Olson, of Minnesota; J. C. Winant,
of New Hampshire; Gifford Pinchot,
of Pennsylvania; T. F. Green, of
Rhode Island; S. C. Wilson, of Ver-
mont; H. G. Kump, of West Virginia;

affect of two previous years of ex-
,essive drought."
"The trees in this region have not
yet been seriously affected by the
extreme dryness, but they may be
soon. If this happens the situation
will be very serious."
Professor Hobbs said that in his
opinion the proposed hundred-mile-
wide belt of trees extending from
Canada to the Texas panhandle may
be very effective in holding down the
soil in this region.
In explaining the effect of radio
broadcasting on the weather Profes-
sor Hobbs pointed dut that moisture
is drawn up into the atmosphere over
large bodies of water, forming clouds.
The clouds then drift over the land
areas and at some point in the pas-
sage the moisture in the clouds con-
denses around particles of dust and
precipitates as rain. When this is
prevented a drought occurs. Radio
broadcasting mnay prevent this con-
densation because of the vibratory
character of the energy released and
excessive broadcasting may be the
cause of the present extreme weather
The same amount of water is prob-
ably being drawn into the atmosphere
now as formerly, Professor Hobbs
said, and there must be some expla-
nation for the fact that it is not being
released over the land. Radio broad-
casting, he believes, should be care-
fully considered in this connection.
The Mathematics Club 'will hold
its only meeting of the summer today
in Room 1035, Angell Hall at 4:15
o'clock. Prof. A. H. Copeland will
speak on "Recent Trends In The
Theory of Probability."
The membership in the club num-
bers about 30, including all members
of the mathematics department and
a number of graduate students.
