Bursley on Committee
Locally the F. E. R. A. funds are
administered by a committee con-
sisting of Professor Gram, Dean of
Students Joseph A. Bursley, and
John C. Christensen, controller and
assistant secretary of the University.
The problem of fitting individual
students to various projects is un-
der the supervision of Dean Bursley,
with Miss Elizabeth A. Smith of
the emplgyment bureau in direct
As was true lasttyear, the allot-
ment of funds to the University is
based on an average of $15 per
month per student, and no single
student shall be allowed more than
$20 for any one month. Obvious-
ly, for those who receive more than
the alloted $15 each month, there
must be a similar number of stud-
ents who will receive less than $15.
No student is to work more than
30 hours in any one week or more
than 8 hours in any single day,
under the rules set up by the local

ployment last year.
Offer For Wool
Trade Scorned
By Argentine
Minister of Agriculture
Rejects Japanese Plans
For Increased Trade
BUENOS AIRES, Aug. 11- (R) -
-Luis Duhau, Argentina's outspoken
minister of agriculture, has thrown
cold water on Japanese trade propa-
ganda with a declaration that Ar-
gentina is not interested in products
just because they are cheap, nor in
Nippon's campaign to buy more wool
here and less from Australia.
Replying to a government commis-
sion which studied Argentine-Japan-
ese trade relations following a pro-
test of the Japanese chamber of com-
merce against the amount of ex-
change available, Duhau pointed out
that the trade balance is heavily in
favor of Japan. He belittled the
commission's opinion that Japan was
trying to buy more from Argentina.

Ruthven Outlines Provisions Of
Student Relief Aid During Year
Members of the Faculties and Students:
You are advised that the Emergency Relief Aid will be pro-
vided for students during the college year 1934-35 on much the
same basis as it was carried on last year. The salient features of this
relief program are as follows:
1. Funds allotted shall be used to pay students for doing socially
desirable work, including the sort customarily done in the institution
by students who are working their way through college, such as clerical,
library, and research work. Regular class instruction shall be excluded,
but students may be assigned to extension, adult education, recreation
and other activities that increase the usefulness of the college to the
2. Inasmuch as the principal objective of using relief funds for
student aid is to increase the number of young men and women going
to college, funds allotted shall not be used to replace college funds
heretofore available for student aid. Ordinary maintenance work about
the college, waiting on table in dining halls and other routine activities
which would have to be carried on anyway shall be financed from
the usual sources, not from FERA funds.
The procedure of administration at this University will be as indi-
cated below:
3. A committee consisting of Professor Gram, Dean Bursley and
Mr. Christensen will have charge of administration under my general
Should Present Possible Projects to Professor
4. Projects upon which student aid is desired, consistent with
Paragraphs 1 and 2 above, should be presented to Professor Gram
and they will be passed upon by the Committee as promptly as possible.
These requests, prepared in triplicate on special forms, include a de-
scription of the projects, an estimate of the number of student hours
per month required, and a statement of the special qualifications, if
any, the student appointees must have. In those departments where the
projects are closely related or overlapping, the requests should come
through the heads of departments, and they in turn will make the
assignment of students. Projects submitted directly from members of
the faculties will be subject, of course, to approval of the heads of
departments or deans of the units concerned.
5. Applications for employment will be received at Dean Bursley's
office and qualifications of students will be passed upon by the com-
mittee. Students must have demonstrated their ability to do satis-
factory work in college, and the student's financial status shall be
such as to make attendance at college under proper living conditions
impossible without this aid. Inasmuch as the funds will provide for a
limited number of students, it is expected that prospective applicants
will respect fully the spirit of this agency and that they will apply
only when the aid is absolutely necessary.
6. The task of fitting students to projects will be under the super-
vision of Dean Bursley, with Miss Elizabeth A. Smith in direct charge.
She will be advised of the action of the Committee on projects for
which applications have been made and will have also the personnel
cards of students whose requests for relief employment have been
approved. The co-operation of faculty supervisors is invited in order
that this detail may be carried out promptly and for the best interests
of both the student and the University.
Christensen To Supervise Timekeeping and Payrolls
7. The details of timekeeping, preparation of payrolls, etc., will
be under the supervision of Mr. Christensen with Mr. H. S. Anderson
at the Buildings and Grounds office in direct charge. The number of
hours put' in by each student employed will be reported on blanks
to be furnished, and these will be collected daily. It is absolutely neces-
sary that these time reports be signed by faculty advisors who can
vouch for their accuracy.
8. The amount of remuneration for each student will be based
upon his or her needs as indicated from the information furnished by
the students in their applications. The allotment .of funds to each
college is based upon an average of $15.00 per month per student, and
the pay shall be not more than $20.00 per month per student. Obviously,
therefore, not more than $15.00 can be paid to any student unless there
are corresponding reductions from $15.00 in the cases of other students.
The hourly rate of pay shall be 40c per hour and no student shall work
more than 30 hours in any week or 8 hours in any day. The adminis-
trative committee will exercise the right to change the amount of
remuneration or to make transfers of students from one project to
another as they may from time to time see fit.
9. Members of the faculties who had charge of student relief
projects last year are requested to make reports to Professor Gram
at their earliest convenience, giving information as to the kind of
work done by the students, and its value, the usefulness of the projects
upon which they worked, and the status of the projects if not completed.
Such information will be helpful not only to me in making a report
of our experience with this agency, but will aid the Committee in
making a classification of projects as to preference in case applications

"It interests us to increase our im-
ports of foreign products if they are
the result of an increase in our ex-1
ports," said Duhau.
"But it does not interest us in anyj
way to purchase, no matter how low
the price, products from a countryl
which does not offer us a correla-
tive market.
"That is especially true if such
foreign products, by their exceptional
low price, compete with articles of
other countries which offer a liber-
al market for Argentine products.
"The wool which Japan stops buy-
ing from Australia or New Zealand,
to buy in Argentina, will occupy in
the world market the same position
as unsold Argentina wool would have
held. Displacement of this type does.
not appeal to us."
Calls Exchange Adequate
Challenging 'criticism of both Jap-
anese importers and Argentine ex-
porters, Duhau cited exchange sta-
tistics to show Argentina had sold
Japan products worth $1,270,000 in
the first five months of 1934, and
that the exchange commission had
given $1,000,000 of official exchange,
for imports from Japan. The differ-
ence, amounting to 13 per cent, he
pointed out, is the same taken from
all customer nations for service on
the foreign debt.
In reply to the commission's com-
ment that Japan was attempting to
buy more from Argentina, Duhau
cited official figures to show that
