Responsibility Of Education In

Pointing out that a third of all
the crimes committed in this country
may be attributed to boys and girls in
the high school age, Prof. 0. W.
Stephenson said yesterday that edu-
cation has a greater responsibility
than ever in the restriction of crime.
Professor Stephenson was the
speaker at the next to last of the
four o'clock educational school con-
ferences, and spoke on the topic: "Ed-

(By Associated Press)
Temperatures flared as high as 11
degrees in the super-heated Mid-Wes
yesterday as the weatherman stokec

The 115-degree heat was reportec
officially at Ottumwa, Ia. It brok
all Iowa heat records.
Other hot spots on the map of dis-
comfort which stretched from the Al-
leghenies to the Rockies were Lin-
coln, Neb., and St. Louis, both with
106-degree readings; Kansas City,
where it was 105; and Des Moines, Ia.,
was, 102.
As the new August torrid wave
struck the harassed mid-continent,
grain traders heard sensational re-
ports of the havoc already wrought in
the nation's fields. December wheat
was whirled up to $1.12 a bushel, a
season record. May wheat hit a $1.15
high and December and May corn hit
new highs of 79 and 84 cents, respec-
The weather bureau called drought
conditions "extremely bad" from the
Mississippi west to the Rockies, with
crops deterioriating under persistent
abnormally high temperatures.
Rain relieved some sections of the
belt, but where the temperature was
relatively low, excessively high hu-
midity made it uncomfortable. In
Milwaukee the thermometer regis-
tered 80, but the humidity was 92.
The East was favored by relatively
cool weather.
Track Squad,
California To
Meet In 1935
Close Contest Is Expected
With Michigan Lacking
Outdoor Practice
Michigan's track team will meet
the University of California in a
dual meet next year at Berkeley,
Calif., it was announced yesterday by
University athletics officials. The meet
is to be held April 13.
The trip to the west coast will be
one of the longest trips undertaken
by a Michigan squad in recent years,
and answers a partial demand that
Wolverine teams be seen in action
outside the Big Ten, where Coach
Hoyt's track teams have been consis-
tently strong.
Michigan's team will be handi-
capped by a lack of outdoor practice
because of the early date, but ob-
servers look to a close meet between
the Golden Bear and Wolverine
Coach Hoyt will have a strong
squad in 1935, amply supported by
sophomores from what Freshman
Coach Ken Doherty has called "the
strongest freshman squad in years,,,
but several members of Michigan's
indoor championship squad and con-
tenders for the outdoor title have been
lost by graduation.
Doctors Lost On

MT. CLEMENS, Aug. 8. - ()-
While the anxious wives of two Mt.
Clemens doctors Tode around Lake
St. Clair in a speedboat search for
their husbands, Doctors R. F. Salot
and Rufus Reitzel, the doctors rowed
a fuelless 18-foot launch from Straw-
berry Island to Algonac, got some

being missing 18 hours.
Three speedboats scoured the Lake
until a late hou Tuesday night for

This he attributed to the fact tha
recent legislation has put manual la
bor beyond the reach of young people
under 18, and that young men an
women just beyond 18, where crim

greatly reduced income, finds it neces.

period of years than before, sinc
these sons and daughters are unable
to contribute much to the family in-

"If by laws prohibiting the employ-
ment of child labor, boys and girls
are to remain in school," Professoi
Stephenson said, "labor and the pub-
lic generally must provide propel
equipment, buildings, and courses of
study to take care of youth, or the
public must pay an even greater cost
in crime.
"The American public, and that
part of it known as the laboring class
upon whom the chief burden of crime
falls, must pay more for schools and
less for institutions which harbor
criminals and for other sacrifices
they must make as victims of crim-
inal acts."

This responsibility of education, he
said, is shared by American labor.
Education and labor, therefore are
drawn more closely together than ever
they have been in the past. He also

ROOSEVELT, Aug. 8. - (A') - Presi-
dent Roosevelt defied scorching heal
today to drive along the Govern-
ment's mammoth construction proj-
ect on the Upper Mississippi.
Leaving Rochester, Minn., early in
the afternoon after participating in
exercises honoring Drs. William and
Charles Mayo, world-famous surg-
eons, the President started along a
I70-mile motor course to inspect prog-
ress of the new nine-foot channel
opening the Mississippi to navigation
to Minneapolis.
It was one of the hottest and also
busiest days of the tireless Mr. Roose-
velt on his intensive cross-country in-
spection, but he stuck to his program.
At Rochester in heat that caused
scores of collapses among the vast as-
semblage in the sun on Soldiers Field
he spoke very briefly, lauding the
famed Mayo' brothers for their spirit
of brotherhood to mankind.
Heads For Green Bay
After lunch the presidential motor
caravan headed toward Lake City, on
the Mississippi, and thence along the
stream with its new dams and locks
to Winona, where the special train
waited to carry the President to Green
Bay, Wis., for th principal address of
his journey tomorrow.
As at every turn on his long over-
land journeyitremendous crowds of
enthusiastic people met Mr. Roose-
velt today. Thousands stood for hours
in the withering heat to catch a
glimpse of him, and the smiling Pres-
ident was forced almost constantly
to have his hat off for a wave of re-
Impressive but almost tragic was
the scene at Soldiers Field, Roches-
ter, where thousands upon thousands
stood for hours in the open sun to see
and hear Mr. Roosevelt.
While dozens of those overcome
were being carried from the field the
introductory speakers went through
to the end of their long speeches, each
one speaking twice as long as the
Edward F. Hayes, national com-
mander, spoke for the American Le-
gion, and Michael Murray, state com-
mander, spoke in behalf of the state
Legionnaires. The ceremony was
conducted by the Rochester Ameri-
can Legion.
Visits Sisters At St. Joseph
After the ceremony at Rochester
the President stopped to visit the Sis-
ters of St. Joseph, who in 1889 estab-
lished St. Mary's Hospital in connec-
tion with the Mayo Clinic.
He talked at length with Sister
Joseph, who five years ago celebrated
her golden jubilee as member of the
order. In the present modern struc-
ture Sister Joseph explained to the
President the conditions of a primi-
tive day when she held a kerosene
lamp while Dr. William Mayo per-
formed his operations. In those days

sisters of night duty carried a lantern
to light their way from bed to bed.
The President also talked with

laughter Of Emaciated

CHICAGO, Aug. 8. - (') - The
- world's greatest livestock butcher, the
t United States government, today was
- in the midst of a cattle slaughter pro-
gram that may accomplish.in a few
months some of the things economists
i advocated last spring.
Speeded by forage and water short-
age, the wholesale killing of beef and
dairy cattle, besides giving meat to the
L needy, may erase one of the livestock
industry's m a j o r problems - the
steady increase of the cattle pptila-
tion, now about half the nation's total
human population.
S With 1,000,000 emaciated cattle al-
ready dead under the government axe
of mercy, 850,000 bought up ready for{
slaughter and about 150,000 shipped
to pasture in Southern states, tenta-
tive plans called for the purchase of
approximately 5,000,000 more before
Federal agents consider the acute sit-
uation relieved.-I
What effect will this huge program
have upon the nation's meat reserves?
Authoritative sources were hesitant
about the answer. Instead, they cited
normal livestock population and'
slaughter figures to show the magni-
tude of the drought relief operation.
Government slaughter of 7,000,000
starving and diseased cattle, should I
it reach that figure, would equal about.
one-third of the total normal annual
cattle ill In the United, Stats. Some
authorities asserted this would do no
more than remove the existing "sur-
plus" of cattle in the nation's herds
-if there is an oversupply.

CONSTANTINE, Algeria, Aug. 8.
- (R) - The full horror of the riot-
ing here between Arabs and Jews
was revealed today by an official cas-
ualty list which reports that the
throats of three little girls were cut.
These children, 4, 8, and 10 years
old, were slashed with native knives,
the heads being almost severed.
A partial list of the dead showed the
throats of 13 victims were cut, while
others were beaten with heavy clubs.
The official tabulation still stood at
27 dead, but the authorities believed
that the Arabs hid the bodies of many
slain Jews.
Troops continued to patrol the
streets and funerals for the slain
were postponed again until tomorrow,
in order to give the French author-
ities more time for measures to pre-
vent new outbreaks.
