William Vare,
Leader. Dies
Heart Attack In Atlantic
City Comes After Six
Year Illness
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Aug. 7. -
O/P) - William S. Vare, Republican na-
tional committeeman and for years
the colorful leader of the Republican
organization in Philadelphia, died
suddenly at 11:30 this morning at his
summer home here. He was 66 years
In ill health for the last six years,
the former congressman suffered a
relapse about a week ago from the
heat. This was revealed Monday night
by his son-in-law, Dr. John J. Shaw,
who said earlier today he had shown
Vare suffered a heart attack and
passed away in 20 minutes.
Vare, who was elected to'the United
States Senate in 1926 and was refused
a seat after a three-year fight on
charges of excessive campaign ex-
penditures, was stricken with a par-
alytic stroke in 1928. For many days,
his condition was critical but he ral-
lied to continue his fight for the seat
in the Senate.
Despite his illness he continued his
political activities in Pennsylvania
until recently when he was deposed
as the leader of the Republican or-
ganization in Philadelphia.
Vare was the last of three brothers
who were active in Philadelphia poli-
tics. The first was State Senator G. H.
Vare, who controlled wards in South
Philadelphia. When he died, Edwin S.
Vare succeeded to his seat in the state
senate and became a political power in
the city, and after the death of Sen-
ator Boies Penrose, a factional foe, Ed
Vare became the undisputed leader of
the city organization.
When he followed Penrose to the
grave, William S. "Bill" Vare became
the leader.
Camp News
The climax of the sixth week of
school in the Forestry Camp came last
Tuesday evening when the faculty
and students were guests at the an-
nual banquet given them by the Mu-
nising Rotary Club. The dining-room
of the Beach Inn, which fronts beau-
tiful Munising Bay of Lake Superior,
was the scene of this particularly en-
joyable occasion.
Prof. Robert Craig, Jr., introduced
each student, the latter standing at
this time and giving his home ad-
dress. In addition, Professor Craig
presented Prof. Donald M. Matthews,
Ralph Wilson of the 1933 forestry
class and Charles Stoddard of this
year's class, the latter two being as-
sistants here in camp. Both Mr. Wil-
son and Mr. Stoddard gave short talks
on forestry gubjects.

Leaders As Kipke Rises1
To Fifth Place1
Bob Zuppke of Illinois yesterday
seized the lead in the vote for a coach
of the all-star football team which is
to play the Chicago Bears this month,
but the race continued as close as
ever with four more days of balloting.
About 2,000 points, based on fans'
preferences for first, second and third
choices, separate Zuppke in first place
and Harry Kipke of Michigan in fifth.
Jimmy Crowley of Fordham, who
had led in the previous day's tabula-
tions, dropped to fourth place, behind
Zuppke, Noble Kizer of Purdue, and
Dick Hanley, Northwestern.
The first five were followed by Lou
Little, Columbia, Doc Spears, Wiscon-
sin, Slip Madigan, St. Mary's, Ossie
Solem, Iowa, and Elmer Layden of
Notre Dame in that order.
Just 67 points separated Zuppke,
in first place with a total of 8,673 and
Kizer. Hanley had 8,529, Crowley 85,-
520, and Kipke 83,569.
Although Zuppke led the field in
total points, Noble Kizer was a slight
favorite for first choice by the fans,
receiving first preference by 16,542 to
16,537 for Zuppke. Kipke of Michigan
received his support from first prefer-
ences of the fans, receiving 16,386, but
fell behind for second and third'

University Has In Possession
Rich College Song Literature

Strikes At Meddling

The University of Michigan num-
bers among its most prized posses-
sions a rich literature of college songs,
which for the most part, are the re-
sults -of original contributions by
members of the University student
body and faculty.
In some instances, such as the "Yel-
low and Blue," the songs are not
original as far as the music is con-
cerned as a University production, but
the text of the poem, however, was
here written by a former member of
the faculty, Charles M. Gayley, and
thus has stamped the "Yellow and
Blue" as definitely a Michigan prod-

Semeyn proved to be the comedian of
the occasion in a witty account. of
camp life in general. Neafus, in a
brief description of cowboy life on the
Southwest Plains, assured the group
that "New Mexico was in the United
States and that timber production

tance in maintaining the limited wa-
ter resources of his native state."

Mr. W. A. Munro, in behalf of the
Munising Rotary Club, has accepted
Professor Craig's invitation to visit
the camp next Tuesday afternoon, at
which time the annual baseball game

being prepared by the students and
faculty to be rendered after the ban-
quet in the camp mess hall.

Two Scientists
Challenge Heat
Puzzled By Which Comes
First; Bureau Of Mines
Upsets Original Idea
PITTSBURGH, Aug. 7. - UP) -
Science has a new puzzler - which
comes first, heat or flame?
A theory announced today from thej
U.S. Bureau of Mines challenges the!
common belief that heat always is
first. It shows how flame can pre-
cede heat, and probably does in ex-
plosions of gas, such as drives your
The theory analyzes anew the fa-
mous "flame front" vhich modern
ultra rapid cameras have shown in
burning, gases. Even an explosion is
not the simultaneous flare of all the
gas, as it seems to the eye. Instead a
layer of flame, only a two-thousandth
of an inch thick, spreads over the gas.
This layer is the "flame front." It
spreads through the gas at tremen-
dous speed, but always as a "front."
That is, the layer in burning itself
out spreads to the unburned layer
adjacent. The question has been how
the fire spreads. The universally ac-
cepted theory has been that heat from
the flame front flowed into the adja-
cent thin layer of gas, heating the un-
burned layer to its "ignition point."
Thlsheat flow is challenged in the
new theory, described in the Journal
of Chemical Physics by Bernard
Lewis, physical chemist of the Bureau
of Mines and Guenther Von Elbe,
University of Virginia.
They point out that a flame front
is known to contain highly energized
atoms and "radicals," the latter small
bunches of atoms acting together.
Some of these energized particles pass
out of the flame by diffusion into
the unburned gas adjacent.
There they set up chemical reac-
tions at ordinary temperatures, that
is, in gas hot enough to burn. These
reactions lead to combustion. Further-
more this kind of spread of the ex-
plosive flame is said to be faster
than by heat alone.

The first opera written and produced
by men only appeared in 1908 and was
the product of the collaboration of

For almost 25 years, the operas con-
tinued one each year, and in most
cases there was one outstanding com-

Guards Fight I
Among Selves
In New York
PEKSKILL, N. Y., Aug. 7. -- (P) -
Two companies of National Guards-
men turned their bayonets and gun
butts on one another in a free-for-
all at Camp Smith that led today to
an official inquiry.
A 20-year-old Guardsman, Private
Alfred Fleming of New York, who was
to have matriculated at West Point1
in the fall, is in serious condition
from a bayonet wound in the skull.
Half a dozen other officers and sol-
diers are injured.
The fight took place Thursday night
when a group of guardsmen, singing
and shouting, aroused sleepy mem-
bers of another company. Words
passed and the battle was on.
It did not become generally known
until Monday night when Lieut. Col.
I Ames Brown, second in command of
j the 71st regiment, announced he
would preside at the investigation to-
night in the regiment armory at New
York City.

Millikan Says
Paternalism Is
Biggest Threat
Warns That 'Excess Of
Government May Spoil1
The American Dream'
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 7.- (P) -
Too much paternalism, says Dr.
Robert A. Millikan, is a more serious
threat to Americanism than Com-
munism or Naziism.
Paternalism, the cosmic ray au-
thority said in a radio address Mon-
day night, weakens "self reliance, dis-
courages private initiative, diminishes
"Excess government may spoil the
American dream," he warned.
"The American dream is that this
country may always remain a land of
freedom and of opportunity for each
individual to rise to just that position
of power and influence to which his
own character entitles him; a land in
which the standard of living of the
common man is just as high as is
compatible with the total productivity
of the country; a land that has so
intelligent and informed an electorate
that social changes, however far-
reaching, can always be brought about
and only be brought about by con-
stitutional ballot methods * * *''
The scientist warned against the
threat of rule by the bullet instead
of the ballot, declaring "freedom of
speech and of the press are our most
priceless heritage."
External as well as internal influ-
ences might spoil the American
dream, he said. Among the external
influences he listed "Russian fana-
tics." "Nazi emotionalists," "Japanese
or American jingoes," and interna-
tional war.

GLASGOW, Mont., Aug. 7. - (,P) -
President Roosevelt got his first di-
rect picture of the vast drouth relief
problem, which confronts his admin-
istration, when he rode for 200 miles
through the completely . burned-out,
area of eastern Montana and listened
to the reports of his subordinate offi-
cials who are trying to help the
He was told, for example, that the
drouth problem today is three times
greater than when Congress ad-
journed in June, after appropriating
$525,000,000 for its relief.
In a little over one month since the
expenditure of this money began,
more than 20 per cent of it hag been
disposed of and, according to Law-
rence Westbrook, chief assistant to
Harry L. Hopkins, Federal relief ad-
ministrator, the present appropriation
certainly will not last beyond Jan. 1.
And, Westbrook said, upwards of 500,-
000 farm families in the drouth re-
gions must be sustained from govern-
ment funds at least until the first
1935 crops are harvested next June.
The extent of the government task
may be realized when it is stated that
60 per cent of all the land in the
United States now is included in the
emergency drouth area, embracing all
or part of 24 states and directly or
indirectly affecting 26,000,000 people.
Between 300,000 and 400,000 farm
families, something like 25 per cent of
the total in the emergency drouth
areas, now are receiving direct fed-
eral relief. Of this number, perhaps
10 per cent, Westbrook said, never can
hope to regain a living from the lands
they occupy and must be moved else-
Force Playoff In

The Superintendents forced a play-
off in the Education Club Softball
League yesterday by defeating the
Principals, 9 to 8.
The Principals will meet the Edu-
cational Research team, captained by
Rome Rankin in the championship
game Thursday on South Ferry Field.
Schram and Singer formed the
battery for the winning Superinten-
dents team in its second win of the
schedule over the Principals, while

Bakken performed creditably on the
