cottage occupied by one or two forestry students
during the warmer months They will be glad to
answer questions and give information.
The lake is used for fisheries research and for
specimens for the department of zoology. About
the lake kingfishers, bitterns and herons may often
be seen and on the lake an occasional grebe or
duck.
At the left of the cottage surrounded by a circle
of spruces is a memorial to Prof. Roth, the first
head of the Forestry Department.
About the cottage is a fire tower, which is soE
necessary in large forests. The view by moonlight
is wonderful.
In late May, when the catalpas are in bloom,.
the view across the lake with pines in the back-
ground is very impressive.
The white pines across the lake show the best
growth, some of them are nearly a foot through
and fifty feet tall. Listen to the wind through the
needles.
In the marsh about the lake several varieties of
marsh-loving birds may often be seen.
The forest differs from the normal forest in that
it has no large trees and no dead trees, hence it
furnishes no inducements to the woodpeckers and
offers no adequate housing facilities to the fox,
oppossums and raccoons. At the opening of the
hunting season, the rabbits flock in from the sur-
rounding fields. '

If, as publicity advances announced, "Harold
Teen" was an attempt to portray accurately "the
joys and sorrows of young America" -it failed
completely. Never was young America more awfully
burlesqued.
And if it was an attempt to bring to life on the
screen the characters of Carl Ed's comic strip by
the same title - it also failed. We've read "Harold
Teen" for years and it just isn't possible for them
to come to life. They read well but they screen
badly.
Perhaps the most noticeable defect in the show
- the thing that bothered us the most - was the
spectacle of 25 and 30-year old actors trying to
look high schoolish. It just can't be done. It kept
reminding us of scenes from Laurel and Hardy
comedies when the boys are trying to act like
babies - and it was just about as convincing.
Chic Chandler as "Lilacs," fpr example, looked
at least 25 and tried to act 17. Rochelle Hudson
and Hal LeRoy as Lillums and Harold looked al-
most young enough, but you could hardly visualize
any normal (or even slightly abnormal) high
school students acting as they did.
Miss Hudson, regardless, has a youthful appeal
that wasn't entirely wasted. There are shows we
would much rather see her in, however.
The show has its good points, chief of which is
the sensational tap dancing of Hal LeRoy. Heralded
R as one of the leading tap dancers of the day,
he lived up to his reputation in the scene where
he "saved" the Junior League show in which Lil-
lums was starred, and won her undying love.
Hal appears on the stage in the nick of time and
breaks into a supposedly extemporaneous tap act.
This excellent climax is almost spoiled, however,
by the following sequences in which Lillums and
Harold get married. We hardly felt that this was
necessary for the success of the show.
Hobart Cavanaugh, Hugh Herbert and Guy Kib-
t bee are cast in parts that don't show up their abil-
' ities to the best advantage.
s We think a better plot might have saved th
d show. One in which, for example, Harold Teen ex-
hibited his athletic ability instead of his master3
y of the terpsichorean art. It would have been les
y effeminate and have a wider appeal.

St Louis In
Wild Seventh
Detroit's Tigers gained a half-game
on the New York Yankees, yesterday,
chiefly because of an eight-run rally
in the seventh inning which wrested
the lead from St. Louis and enabled
the none-too-steady Clarence Phil-
lips to finish the game without serious
mishap and win, 12 to 8.
Rowe started on the mound and,
after Clift had led off with a double,
strained a muscle in his back and
left the game. He is expected to be
back in pitching condition again with-
in a few days.
Clift scored in the first inning when.
Pepper hit into a double play after
the bases had been filled, but De-
troit tied it up in its half of the in-
ning on Fox's double, two walks, and
a fielder's choice.
White started the big seventh in-
ning by walking, took third on Gos-
ylin's single, and scored when Green-
berg flied to deep center after Rogell
had walked. Owen received an in-
tentional pass, and Cochrane, batting
for Ray Hayworth, also walked. This
was enough for Blaeholder and Knott'
. relieved him on the mound. Doljack

Intellectualism, both in this country
and abroad, is at present the object
of three violent attacks, according to
Prof. Max S. Handman of the eco-
nomics department, who lectured to
Phi Delta Kappa members at their
weekly luncheon which was held yes-
terday at the Union. His subject was
"The Crisis of the Intellectual."
The first attack, Professor Hand-
man stated, comes from the failure of
our economic system to absorb the
intellectual class from which is being
turned out by our educational system.
Students receive masters and doctors
degrees too easily, which results in
too large a class of persons seeking to
live by intellectual pursuits. At the
same time, he stated, the quality of
our intellectuals is falling.
"The second attack," he continued,
"comes from the occupational read-
justments which are taking place in
our economic system. To the extent
that people with pretentions to an
education are crowded out of their
professions, they will seek shelter in
the fields of the intellectual, and
school teaching will be the first to
suffer. Most people think that school
teaching requires no better prepara-
tion than a fair knowledge of the
three R's".
Lastly, and most seriously accord-
ing to Dr. Handman, intellectualism
is threatened from within. "Special-
ization, so necessary to scientific suc-
cess, leaves rdom for intellectual
quackery when it fails to undertake
the job of synthesis itself, and leaves
that to the quack and the intellec-
tual prostitute who does not hesitate
to use his intellect to barter up half-
truths or sophistry as long as it serves
the political or economic system
which pays him for it."
batting for Marberry, singled to left,
sending Rogell and Owen home and
Cochrane to third. Fete Fox was hit
with a pitched ball, and White cleaned
up with a double down the left-field
line. Gehringer kept the rally alive
with a single scoring White, but Gos-
lin ended it, fanning.
Greenberg's eighteenth home run,
with Rogell scoring ahead of him,
gave the Tigers their final runs in
eighth inning.

THE CAUSE AND THE CURE
To the Editor:
It all seems confusing - or is it that I am not
quite bright enough to see the congruity of the fol-
lowing facts:
(1.) The University Health Service maintains a
physician specializing in allergic reactions. At least
half of every week day he seems to have a never-
ending stream of student hay fever sufferers being
tested and prescribed for in his office.
(2.) There is one of the dandiest crops of short
ragweed growing for one block in front of the In-
tramural Sports Building.
(3) Ragweed causes more hay fever than any
other single item on the list of allergic substances.
Oh, well -only a few hundreds of us that "can't
take it" would sneeze a few times less if that par-
ticular ragweed was cut before it started to polli-
nate in another ten days. Now that I look at it in
that light, I am sorry I had to bother you about it.
