tion of a few cases and we try to do
the same with them. We regret very
much that many of the householders
are unable to make ends meet due to
the low rental rates but it must be
remembered that the condition is gen-
eral.
"There are also many students who
are scarcely able to get along and af-
ter all I believe it is the first duty of
this department of the Dean of Stu-
dent's office to take care of the stu-
dent and see that he is comfortably
housed. It is not our duty to rent the
rooms for the householders, although
some of the extremists among them
seem to have that idea."
Dean Wahr stated that it is true
that the prices of rooms have been
decreasing during the last five years
but that rooms at $1.50 are very few
in number and are not among the
better rooms. The prices for next
year, according to figures submitted
to the Dean's offices by householders
do not show a decrease but are ap-
proximately the same as last year. A
single room may be rented for any-
where between $2 and $5, and double
rooms and suites run from $1.50 to
$3.50 per man.
List Smaller Than In Past
Figures secured from the Dean's of-
fice show that 145 householders who
had rooms on the approved list in
4932-33 did not register for 1933-34.
Also, in 1927-28 there were 900 house-
holders on the approved list, whereas
in 1933-34 there were 726.
Dean Wahr said that this decrease
was not due to inability of house-
holders have been eliminated because
they have become undesirable and
others because of University building
projects such as the Law Quadrangle;
it is also to be remembered that many
of the larger houses have been made
into apartment dwellings and there-
fore do not come under the jurisdic-
tion of the approved list."
Miss Ellen B. Stevenson, Business
Manager of University Dormitories,
said yesterday that there would be no
raise in prices of rooms at any of the
women's dormitories and that rents
would run between 80 and 95 doljars
for the semester.
Seek Higher Average Rent
At a recent meeting of the land-
ladies league, a committee was ap-
pointed to study the situation and
take any possible steps toward ef-
fecting a higher average rent for
rooms in the campus sections.
Average prices for single rooms per
week during the past seven years are
as follows: 1927-28, $4.86; 1928-29,
$4.81; 1929-30; $4.91; 1930-31, $4.79;
1931-32, $4.70; 1932-33, .$3.36; and
1933-34, $3.13.
'Take It Straight'
Bees' Motto, Says
Agriculture Dept.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 3. - (I) -
Bees like to take their nectar straight.
That is why they suddenly shift from
one kind of blossom to another for no
apparent. reason, the department of
agriculture has discovered.
The more concentrated the nectar
is in a blossom, the more likely the
bees are to be drawn to it. They do
not lilfe nectar that has been diluted
by rain or dew.
Watching the behavior of bees at
a California experiment station, it
was found that the insects avoided
fruit blossoms of open structure such
as apricot and some plums during
the time the nectar in them was "wa-
tered." The bees visited almond blos-
soms at all times, however, becduse
their nectar was better protected,

It was found that the bees started
gathering pollen in the morning from
Bartlett pear trees but shifted later
to apricot and plum blossoms when
the sun had caused evaporation of the
dew deposited during the night in
these blossoms.

Relief Workers
Not Allowed To
Enter Politics
State Relief Commission
Approves Program For
Aid Of Needy Teachers
LANSING; Aug. 3. - 1P) - Welfare
relief workers in Michigan will not
be allowed to take part in politics this
year. At a meeting of the state wel-
fare relief commission Thursday eve-
ning a resolution was passed forbid-
ing any employe of a county com-
mission to seek a public office. Those
who are candidates for offices must
resign, it was announced.
The commission placed its approv-
al of the program for the relief of
needy school teachers. Beginning in
September approximately 3,000 teach-
ers will be given assistance for a
period of 10 months. The work relief
program to be financed entirely by the
FERA, will cost approximately $200,-
000 a month.
Incorporation of the Rural Reha-
bilitation Credit corporation of Mich-
igan, was approved by the commis-
sion, its! purpose is to handle all busi-
ness transactions arising out of the
rural relief program, particularly any
loans for the purchase of capital
goods for farmers on relief. It will
serve also as the agency which will
receive any agricultural land taken
out of use by the AAA.
Dr. William Haber, state relief ad-
ministrator, was authorized to deny
state and federal funds to any .po-
litical subdivisions which fail to make
contributions to welfare work, pro-
vided that there is evidence of availa-
ble funds.
The removal of two county admin-
istrators was ordered. Stanley Bul-
livant, Chippewa county, and Mrs.
A. H. Carbeth, of Barry county, were
those removed.
The commission's August budget of
$4,270,000, slightly less than in July,
was approved.
Police Force Dancers
To Wear Pants Again
CHICAGO, Aug. 3. - (')- Fan
dancers wore pants again today at the
World's fair.
Declaring "the lid is not off," police
squads Wednesday raided five villages
and "the bowery," seized gambling
wheels in each place, closed an ex-
hibition, and on their way out ordered
pants placed on Faith Bacon, a fan
dancer.
Officials said they would not permit
abuses of their new liberalized policy,
adapted at the insistence of dis-
gruntled concessionaires.'

Attribute Michig an's Weather
To Condition Of Lake Region

Big Trai' Abed

EAST LANSING, Aug. 3. - R)-
What's the reason for Michigan's
temperamental weather?
This is the question that was put
to Otho W. Crawford, assistant to
Dewey A. Seeley, U.S. meteorologist
at the state's chief weather bureau.
And the answer that was forthcoming
might have been a blow to all the
"stove-league" theorists.
Crawford attributed Michigan's
summertime weather chiefly to that
vast expanse of territory to which one
conveniently refers as the "north-
west" and to the Great Lakes which
virtually surround the Wolverine
state. He wasn't asked about snow
or ice because it so happens that all
the present talk is about heat and
drouth. Even Thursday's storm was
but a drop in the season's bucket.
As the weather man sees it, Mich-
igan can normally expect a generous
share of rainfall in the summer. The
condition is caused mainly by the
hot, moisture-laden winds from the
south meeting the cool breezes from
the northwest. The meeting causes a
condensation and presto there is rain.
That's the simple explanation fbr
general rains.
Then there are the local thunder-
storms to be accounted for. These
freaks of nature are not nearly so
common in Michigan as in plain
states like Indiana and southern Illi-
nois. The Great Lakes were linked by
Crawford to a sentinel standing guard
against thunder storms.
A thunderstorm, meteorologists ex-
plain, is caused by the convocational
action of the hot and moisture-filled
air of the land surface coming into
contact with cooler air at vast
heights. As the surface air becomes
hotter, there is a greater tendency
for it to rise.
In Michigan, particularly near the
lake shores, the cool breezes from the
lakes come inland to displace the hot
air from the land surface. As a result
thunder-showers are not as plentiful
here as in other states which do not
have great bodies of water.
Crawford's explanation, goes a long
way toward giving people an idea why
Michigan has had such a prolonged
drouth this year. It's because there
haven't been many of those normal
cool storms from the northwest.
Parker Returns To
Form, Whips Hines'
SOUTHAMPTON, N. Y., Aug. 3. -
(R) -Young Frankie Parker, 18-year-i
old protege of Princeton's tennis
coach, Mercer Beasley, is back in form
again today, enjoying a revenge that
was extremely sweet.
Twice whipped by Wilmer Hines,
unranked player from Columbia, S.C.,
in both the Crescent-Hamilton and
the Seabright singles play, Parker,
rated 8th nationally, came back yes-
terday in the quarter-finals of the
44th annual Meadow Brook invitation
play to crush his tormentor 6-0, 6-0,
6-2 to gain the semi-finals.

The Canadian northwest provinces
ordinarily can be depended upon for
lower temperatures than Michigan
and other nearby states. The reverse,
however, has often been true this
summer. The result has been a
marked deficiency in Michigan rain-
fall the last three months.
The weather bureau's scientific
explanation for rainfall conditions in
Michigan discounts most theories
with regard to artificial methods of
controlling rain. Crawford will tell
you with a smile he doesn't know
anything about the influence of radio,
electricity and fires on precipitation.
In this state, the responsible causes
are the lakes and the northwest in-
fluence.
Crawford appeared to give more
credence to the theory about fire
thandmost others but added that it
would have to be "a very big" fire
for appreciable results. The theory
behind the fire cause, of course, is
that the land air is warmed by the
flames with results similar to local
thunderstorms.
Europe Slow
In Marching
To Recovery
Seems To Have Missed The
Prosperity Trend Of The
Siummer Of 1932
NEW YORK, Aug. 3. - (P) - Eu-
rope appears to be stumbling, on the
road to economic recovery.
Recovery set in for most coun-
tries, according to League of Nations
statistics, in the summer of 1932, and
for several, continued well into this
year of statistics of industrial pro-
duction 'in, England and Germany
showed striking gains during the ear-
lier months of the year. England,
however, has currently entered a
moderate lull, and has been dis-
concerted by an increase in unem-
ployment. Current statistics from
Germany are lacking, but the coun-
try's business appears to have been
seriously disturbed by the exchange
crisis, and lack of funds to purchase
raw materials.
The gold bloc countries seem to
have entered a new phase of defla-
tion. Business has been slackening in
France almost steadily since last
summer, and Italy finds herself in
the throes of an exchange problem,
resulting from a persistent excess of
imports recently.
That the entire situation has been
aggravated by the political crises in
Austria and Germany, there seems
little doubt..
The depression hit France late, and
save for a minor upturn last sum-
mer, she has shown virtually no im-
provement.

Banditry, Famine,
Piracy, Comprise
China's Problems
By MORRIS J. HARRIS
SHANGHAI, Aug. 3. -- (/P) - China
probably has more troubles in its
kit-bag than any other country of the
world.
Some - banditry and "squeeze," or
graft, for example - date back a
thousand years. It may take another
thousand years or more to remove
them. But time means little in this
ageless country.
Among the country's other major
problems are the opium evil, civil
war, militarism, piracy, Japanese ag-
gression, ignorance and poverty
among the people, the prevalence of
leprosy and other diseases, annual
floods and famines and the inability
of the Chinese race to form a single
government with authority over the
whole country.
One In Three Smokes Opium
It is estimated that one person in
three among China's four hundred
and fifty million people smokes
opium.
Among the people, the evil is so
deep-rooted that its extermination
is regarded as almost hopeles. Opium
is such a staple commodity that the
soldiers are often paid in it instead
of in money.
Banditry has existed in China since
time immemorial. All over the coun-
try are modern "Robin Hoods" and
their bands of marauders, who live
by robbing, kidnaping and terroriz-
ing. No one knows how and when
they will be suppressed.
Piracy On Increase
Piracy, for centuries the scourge of
China coast shipping, appears to be
increasing in the China seas. Dur-
ing recent years the blood-thirsty
brigands have confined themselves
gradually to the South China coast,
but lately their depredations have
increased in daring and extent. The
whole China coa t, shippers feel, is
now subject to p acy. The solution
is not clear.
"Squeeze," a method of gouging
money in the form of "presents,"
commissions or percentages, is widely
practised. It is said that few offi-
cial or private contracts or business
deals are made without somebody
getting "squeeze" out of it.
German Ambassador To
U. S. Returns To Post
BERLIN, Aug. 3. -- P) -Dr. Hans
Luther, German ambassador to the
United States, departed for Wash-
ington today, aboard the Europa, to
resume his post.
His departure set at rest persistent
rumors that he would be supplanted
as ambassador by a Nazi party mem-
ber. The foreign office explained his
that Dr. Luther had completed his
regular summer vacation on schedule
and that his return was a routine
matter.

,Johnson, Suffering
From Pleurisy, To
Be Out Two Weeps
CLEVELAND, Aug. 3. - () -Man-
ager Walter Johnson, of the Cleve-
land Indians, rested easily at Lake-
side Hospital today, resigned to being
out of uniform for two weeks.
Dr. M. H. Castle, Indians' physi-
cian, said the "Big Train's" condi-
tion was not serious and that rest and
treatment would cure him of his pleu-
risy. Johnson spent a comfortable
night, hospital attaches reported, and
slept late this morning.
The big pilot was stricken yester-
day. Willie Kamm, third baseman,
is manager "pro temn," on Johnson's
orders, and directed the team today
against the St. Louis Browns here.
Professor Says Disease
Weakens As It 'Travels'
SEATTLE, Aug. 3. - () - Points
distant from one in which there is an-
epidemic of infantile paralysis have
little reason to fear a spread of the
disease, says Dr. W. Alfred Buice,
professor of bacteriology and hygiene
of Washington State college.
It is a peculiarityof the disease, he
said, that it loses virulence as it trav-
els from its point of origin.

an editorial, "and public affairs is
denied to us Jews in present-day Ger-
many, but at a time when the whole
German people mourn at von Hinden-
burg's bier, we deem it our duty to
say we German Jews share the same
feeling."
All Classes Pay Tribute
Commoners, nobility and royalty
paid their last private tribute today
to von Hindenburg as he lay in state
in his manor house at Neudeck.
On the white coverlet, above which
only the head and arms were visible,
lay a bullet which pierced von Hin-
denburg's hand in a battle in 1866. A
soldier later gave it to him, saying,
"I burned my fingers on this; it was
too hot."
Near by lay the old general's Bible,
swords, his uniform and other be-
loved objects.
The former Crown Prince, Fried-
rich Wilhelm, was one of the early
visitors, appearing as representative
of the family which one ruled Ger-
many.
Von Paper spent 45 minutes in the
death chanber.
Many others from high position
and low went to the room, and news
correspondents were also given an
opportunity to view the body.
It was stated reliably that the pro-
cession to Tannenberg, where a Na-
tional funeral will be held Tuesday,
will start from Neudeck at midnight
Monday. The march will be one of
wnusual pomp and military display
for 60 miles.
Undecided On Burial Plot
Whether the Tannenberg Memo-
rial, erected to commemorate von
Hindenburg's famous victory over the
Russian army, will be his final rest-
ing place, as planned by the govern-
ment, remained undecided.
The. family indicated today that
burial would be in the family plot
on the Neudeck estate, probably to be
followed later by the building of a
mausoleum in the park there. Von
Hindenburg once pointed out the spot
in Neudeck where he wished to be
buried.
Should the family yield at last to
the government and the people and
allow the body to remain at Tannen-
berg, there would be a parallel to the
burial of Frederick the Great, who
'wished to be buried on his favorite
estate, but instead was laid to rest in
Garrison Church at Pottsdani, next
to his father, whom he never loved,
and who had been harsh if not
cruel to him.
