Montana, a geology 'camp in Kentucky and an
archeology camp in Egypt, beside various other
camps that represent researches in different fields.
The study camp offers a combination of recre-
ation and study, which makes a distinct appeal.
Most of these camps are comparatively new, but
their tribe is sure to increase from the very nature
of the opportunity that they offer on the educa-
tional, recreational and practical side.
On the educational side these camps offer a
study of things, an opportunity to show initiative,
make discoveries and find new ways of doing
things. To most people it is more interesting to see
a tree or an animal or bird than it is to read

I N MINNEAPOLIS the governor of
Minnesota sends the national guard
td preserve the peace and welfare of that pros-
perous city - and the prosperous citizens protest
violen tly. OK
,Down in fertile Louisiana the governor, 0. K.
Allen, sends the national troops into the capital
city, New Orleans, with instructions to go into the
capital building and confiscate the lists of regis-
tered voters therein. Why?
In Louisiana everyone is discontented with the
state of politics. Governor Allen is under the thumb
of United States Senator and former Governor
Huey Long, who is liked no better in his home state
than in Michigan or in the Senate chambers.
Therefore it looks too much as if Senor Long were
headed for disastrous defeat in the next election
in his state. The "Kingfish" Long machine, while
not as well organized as New York's Tammany,
nevertheless gets what it aims at - or rather what:
Mr. Long wants. And it seems that the blustering
politician is out to win or die.
What.Long will do with the lists the soldiers took
is somewhat in the dark, but it is assumed that he
and his stooges will conveniently discover that a big
miajority of pro-Huey voters have registered. Gov-
ernor Allen defends the action on the grounds
that foul play was suspected in the process of reg-
istering and it was his duty to inspect the books.
Whatever is done to the lists, the Long outfit
controls the state courts in Louisiana to the ex-
tent that the Governor will have little trouble
maintaining his stand. Undoubtedly Senator Long
and Governor Allen will return to their offices in
the fall elections, even though the people of Louis-
iana are against them.
In Minnesota the state courts will take action to
dispell Governor Olson's troops from Minneapolis.
In Louisiana the voting lists will be doctored
by the political bosses and returned to the files,
with a minimum of publicity. But will the people
tolerate it? Will the love of freedom submit to
this political demagoguery? Or will the Huey Longs
be properly ousted and punished for their rotten
methods of public graft?
ummer Camp s
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of a
series of articles dealing with University sum-
mer camps. Mr. Curts has made an extensive
survey and study of camp organization and
Our conventional conception of an education
has always been that it consisted in sitting down in
a class room with a book before you, while the
teacher sat or stood at a desk in the front of
the room. Carried to the nth degree with a recep-
tive mind this sort of an education produces a'
pedant. There has always been an education of an-
other sort going on, an education that came from
an actual contact with things and experiences. This

sort of education may have been narrow in its
range, but it was intensely practical and ready
to use. It has always been the main standby of the
man of affairs.
The education camp does not provide for any
great variety of experiences but it deals mainly
with things rather than books, and usually calls
for the continuous modification of activities ac-
cording to the facts discovered. While it will
not in itself produce a man of affairs, it is away
from the bookworm type.
All camps are more or less educational camps
or should be. Most of our larger work camps now

life, largely in the open air and sunshine, and'
the companionship of others who are like minded.
Often there is a chance for hunting, fishing, canoe-
ing, horseback riding; and nearly always a great,
deal of hiking. If there is no fear of impending
examinations, and actual study hours are not too
long, what better vacation could anyone wish?
On the practical side, in forestry, engineering,
and surveying, the work amounts almost to an
apprenticeship, and puts the student down before
the real problems such as he must deal with later.
Nearly all educational camps involve a consid-
erable travel in order to get to them, as will be
noted in the case of the University of Michigan.
Many of them are essentially travel camps. Thus]
the geology camp of the University of California
moves from place to place all through the summer
seldom remaining in any one place for more than
a week. The Department of geology of Oberlin Col-
lege takes a different location each summer;, one
summer it may be in the Rockies, the next in
the Adirondacks and the third in Europe.
Prof. Jones of Oberlin was accustomed for many
years to take his class in ornithology across to the.
Pacific Coast each summer. They bought new
autos of the cheaper varieties for each five stu-
dents, and traveled acoss the country in a leis-
urely manner, studying birds, animals and other
objects of scientific interest as they went. They
carried tents, cooked their own meals, and camped
out at night, largely in the -school yards. On arriv-
ing at the coast, they sold their autos, usually for
more than they paid for them (they were practi-
cally driving them through for the companies) and
returned by train, their summer of travel and study
cost them little if any more than a summer spent
at the summer school.
Princeton is sending its class in geology over the
Canadian railroads this summer in a special pull-
man car that belongs to the university. This car
will be the home of the group during the trip and
will furnish them board and lodgings.
The University of Wichita offers the most ambi-
tious program in this field in what it calls the
University of the Omnibus, as it takes its entire
summer school of about twelve hundred on an ex-
tended tour through the mountains and national
parks each summer having special stops of its
own, where lectures are conducted.
A number of colleges in the hot section of the
southwest conduct a summer camp of quite a dif-
ferent sort. They move their entire school into
the mountains for the summer. Probably nearly
all the summer schools of Texas, New Mexico and
Arizona would profit by this method.
There have also been a number of university
trips which have taken a body of students around
the world, though these trips in general have prob-
ably represented more travel than study.
It would appear, however, that very little has
been done or attempt made to reach the groups
for whom study camps and travel camps are best
suited. The great mass of our population do not
get ideas easily from the printed page, while they
absorb and remember easily impressions of things
they see. It would look as though the study camp
and the travel camp offered a tremendous oppor-
tunity to our extension departments to give a
practical education to our general population
who may have had comparatively little academic
education, but who are intelligent and interested
in the world about them. I should guess that there
are thousands of farmers who would like to spend
two weeks in the forest somewhere in studying
trees, that there are other thousands of our citizens
who would like to spend a few weeks studying birds
and animals and mountains under a real educa-
tional leader. .
There are developing also in connection with
our various universities and colleges summer o
vacation colonies of. quite a different sort. Thus
some years ago Oberlin College bought a con-
siderable area on Lake Erie, which it resold tc
members of its faculty at cost. This is about 2(
miles from Oberlin on a good road. It is of especia:
advantage to the teachers in the summer school, as
it enables them to keep their families at the shore
and drive back and forth to their work. Certair
of the faculty, who have no children in school
occupy their lakeside cottages from early May tc
October. Columbia had a similar colony at Ossi-
The University of Wisconsin has a student col-
ony on its lake and a regular ferry which takes
students back and forth to and from the University

every effort to help the students but wants to gain
recognition by her change in methods?
Miss McCormick has always proved herself equal 1
to her duty as a charming, gracious hostess and
surrounds herself with assistants she has chosen
because they are well-balanced and blessed with
grace and understanding.
One who has eyes to see and a mind that is open
will take into consideration the fact that the Sum-
mer School student is more mature and set in his
ways and very often hampered by an inferiority
complex, and you just try to socialize one who
craves these contacts, yet fears even with the splen-
did help now being given to go after the thing
they want most.
Why not try to lend your support by less crit-
icism? Go to the dances yourself and support the'
hostesses by encouraging these students to dance
with you. A gracious smile and friendly manner,
will do more to help them socialize than a constant
demand for change and criticism of the present
system. -A Bystander.

"Upperworld" is not strikingly new from the
standpoint of plot, but it combines good humor,
casting, and camera work in such a way that it will
entertain the not-too-critical theatre-goer in a
very satisfactory manner for 50 minutes.
It is the story of a railroad magnate (Alex.
Stream) whose wife is so interested in society that
she has no time for thought of her husband.
Stream, excusing himself on grounds of loneliness,
has an "affair" with a burlesque star (Lily Linda)
whose life he has saved. He shoots her boss in self-
defense at the same time that the boss, a burlesque
owner, kills Lily in an attempt to shoot Stream.
Through the medium of fingerprints, Stream is
brought to trial for the murder but is acquitted,
and the picture ends happily with Mrs. Stream
realizing the error of her ways and promising to
give up the high society life.
By way of criicism, the whole plot is rendered
weak as to structure because it is based on an
improbability. It is difficult to believe that a man,
who is of ordinary intelligence, assuming that
Stream is such, would not take the elementary pre-
caution of removing finger-prints from the gun'
with which he shot the villain.
Overlooking this, however, the entire cast is ex-
tremely well-chosen. Warren William turns in what
is, we think, one of the best performances of a
long career, but husky-voiced Andy Devine almost
steals the show in the role of his chauffeur.
The management of the Majestic adds another
scalp to their already heavily-laden belt with this
latest group of short subjects, which includes a
repeat of last week's newsreel. The feature picture
was worth three stars, but the added attractions
detract considerably, hence the two-star rating.
HOLLYWOOD - Hollwood's increasingly active
independent producers are staking a lot on the
exhibitors' cancellation clause in block-booking,
This clause, a provision of the NRA code, al-
lows a theatre man to cancel, without cause, 10
percent of the pictures he buys sight unseen and.
an additional five per cent on the grounds of
Opinion in some quarters is that producers will
render subtly ineffective the clause by making
more pictures than heretofore - some majors al-
ready have inferred they will increase their out-
put - and by releasing cheap foreign-made pic-
tures as part of their program.
Block-booking, which came in for a lot of dis-
cussion at the code hearings, is the buying of all of
a company's pictures a year in advance. An ex-
hibitor cannot go into the open market and buy
only those pictures he believes will make money]
for him.

GLENDALE, Calif., July 31.- UP)-
The final scene in the life drama of
filmdom's "ugly duckling" was re-
corded here today.
Funeral services as simple as the
life she followed were said for Marie
Pressler before a small gathering.
Film stars and waitresses, camera-
men and executives, as well as friends
from outside the business where she
made her great success late in life
gathered at the Wee Kirk o' the Hea-
ther, in Forest Lawn cemetery here
to pay their massed respects to the
screen star.
In the cubicle of the church were
only the closest friends of the actress.
They included James and Mamie
Cox, colored servants of the actress,
May Robson, a veteran trouper, Nor-
ma Shearer, Frances Marion, once a
protege of Miss Dressler, and other
close friends who knew her affec-
tionately as the "ugly duckling."
. Fewer than a hundred others, in-
cluding Polly Moran, Jean Hersholt,
and Lionel Barrymore, who had work-
ed in pictures with Miss Dressler,
were in the chapel proper.
A hundred chairs had been placed
outside the church, but none was oc-
A loudspeaker carried to the outside
the voice of the Rev. Neal Dodd, Epis-
copalian minister who read the serv-
ices, and of Jeanette MacDonald, con-
cert and screen-star, who sang, "Face

Outside the gates of the cemetery
waited some of Marie's fans - not
