Dr. Louis Hopkins Describes Visit To
University Biological, Forestry Camps

I £ ( -----




Faces Strike Problem

Returning from a trip ti the Uni-
versity Biological Station at Douglas
Lake and the Forestry Camp at Mu-
nising - a trip which he classed "not
as one of inspection but rather a
pleasure tour that.is the privilage of a
director of the Summer Session"-
Dr.. Louis A. Hopkins yesterday re-
turned to the Ann Arbor campus for
the "wind-up" activities of the 1934
summer period.,
Accompanied by his younger son,
Arthur, Dr. Hopkins left his summer
home at Crystal Lake on Monday
morning for the drive which would
take him to the University's northern
Michigan outposts. The Hopkinsres-
idence near Frankfort was the first
of a group of summer homes at Crys-
tal Lake, which have turned that loca-
tion into a veritable summer colony
for Michigan faculty members.
See Summer School
Stopping at Bay View to see the
summer school there, the Hopkinses,
father and son, followed the trail
nearest Lake Michigan to Cross Vil-
lage, the point where Father Mar-]

quette landed almost 300 years ago
and where now stands a cross which
natives claim to be the original erect-
ed by Father Marquette at the time
of his famous arrival.
By way of Sturgeon Bay to Mack-
inaw City, Dr. Hopkins arrived at
the Biological Station at 8 o'clock in
the evening; to be greeted by Prof.
George R. LaRue, director of the
View "Bug Tower"
The "bug" tower, located on a hill
at the station, was among the first
points of interest to be shown the vis-
itors. Consisting mainly of a large
white sheet upon which is focused a
starong electric light, the "tower"
serves to collect insects of many va-
rieties, which are studied by students
at the camp.
A tour through the various labora-
tories, well-equipped in every respect
for instruction and research, followed1
the inspection of the "tower," after
which Dr. Hopkins met all of thec
faculty members at the camp. t
All of the camp's faculty members
have served for a long period-the

shortest being five years- and they
represent Yale, Johns Hopkins, Illi-
nois, Kansas, and Wayne University,
in addition to Michigan.
The camp's area is roughly divided
into sections comparable to those
which might be found in a small uni-
versity town. Housing 160 people, the
station proper has its "Faculty Row"
for. the instructors, "Ladyville" for
women students. "Manville" for the
men, and an appropriately-entitled
"Blissville" for young married couples.
Find A "Union"
Dr. Hopkins found even a miniature
Michigan Union at the camp, serving
a perverted purpose perhaps, but
nonethelessda spot commonly-called
"the Union." Originally the site for
a proposed recreation building, "the
Union" consists of a large concrete
area now used as a "turntable" for
automobiles. The recreation center for'
the camp is now in another building
and provides many entertainment fa-
cilities for those at the camp.Mem-
bers of the Hopkins' party were housed
at 20 East State Street during their

Prof. Emeritus William H. Hobbs
of the geology department stated
yesterday that it is the spasmodic
falling of huge piles of rock which
have caused both the American
and Horseshoe falls to recede at
the rate of 3.2 feet per year.
He explained these phenomena
by saying that the water falling
over the gorge has created a
churning movement under the
surface of the water and has un-
dermined the soft shale under-
neath the gorge, thereby causing
the top layer, composed of lock-
port dolomite rock, to collapse.
The percentage of recession has
always been much greater on the
Canadian Falls than on the Amer-
ican Falls and this last break
away will make the percentage
even greater, according to Pro-
fessor Hobbs.
He said that if the movement
continues the Canadian Falls will
eventually "capture" the Amer-
ican Falls and the latter will be
nothing but a dry river bed.
NIAGARA FALLS, N. Y., Aug. 13.
- (;)- Crashing with a roar that
stilled the sounds of the giant cata-
ract, a huge chunk of the Horse-
shoe Falls, estimated to weigh30,-
00,000: pounds fell from the brink
into Niagara gorge at 8:20 a.m. today
to. send water splashing high Into tie
Almost as if iffted by a charge of
dynamite, the lip one of America's
wonders heaved, groaned,. and slid
to the bottom. A deafening roar and
a column of water arose more than
200 feet into the air, falling back like
rain drops upon a sea.
A heavy flow of water began to
pass over what was dry rock yesterday
and where hundreds of tourists had
stood' in amazement to gaze at the
wonders of nature in cireating the
great waterfall.
Below the falls today lies a pile of
rock, visible only when mist clears
for a moment.
Residents believed the rock fall had'
changed the contour of the falls con-
siderably. It also has altered the
course of the turbulent waters of the
upper rapids slightly, sending more
water toward the American side.
Engineers of power companies on
the Canadian side, investigating to
determine if the flow of water was
lowered appreciably, stated no great
effect was apparent.
A. S. Robertson, general superin-
tendent of the Hydro-Electric Power
Co. of Niagara Falls, Ont., said a close
watch is being kept on developments
at his company's plant.
Tracy Levee, superintendent of po-
lice on the Goat Island reservation,
said the break-off was halfway to the
apex of the Horseshoe.
He said the rock crumbled off about1
250 feet from the island, located be-
tween Niagara Falls on the American
side and Horseshoe on the Canadian.
The latter is entirely in Canada.
Thousands gathered on the shore
after reports of the rock slide, but
little could be seen because of mist.
Restorino Of 1
Hapsburgs Is

LONDON, Aug. 13.- P)-The
former Empress Zita, described by
diplomats as a "fast worker" was said
today by an authoritative source to be
going ahead with her efforts to bring
about restoration of the Hapsburg
throne in Austria despite objections
from the Little Entente nations.
Italian officials are said by the
same source to have suggested that
Zita go slowly in her negotiations on

Tigers Oppose
Yankees Today

Expect Rowe And Bridges
To Hurl For Tigers In
Double Header
DETROIT, Aug. 14. - Manager
Mickey Cochrane last night led his
team of first-place Detroit Tigers out
of the Motor City on their way to
New York where they will meet to-
day in a double header, the first two
games of a series of five, with the
Yankees of Gotham.
The Tigers are moving East en-
joying a four and one-half game lead
over the second-place Yanks, mainly
the result of a winning streak which
remains unbroken at 12 games.
The coming Tiger-Yankee series,
according to the experts, is offering
the Tiges their best opportunity to
cinch the American League flag and
thus bring Detroit its first world ser-
ies since 1909. On the other hand, it
is also pointed out that the New
Yorkers have their real chance to
close the gap now separating them
from the ,Bengals, thus leaving the
race up to the best team in the final
.tretch drive.
Indications point to the belief that
the Detroits will toss in their two
best hurlers, Lynwood "Schoolboy"
Rowe and Tommy Bridges, in the
twin bill today. The Yanks may at-
tempt to match these two with Ver-
non Gomez, the league's leading
pitcher, and Charlie Ruffing.
Instead of taking - a day off yes-
terday, the Tigers played an exhi-
bition game with the St. Louis Car-
dinals, and were beaten by "Wild Bill"
Hallahan, 7 to 1.
Navy Will Ask
Greater Funds
For Air Force
WASHINGTON, Aug. 13.-(P) - A
new five-year naval air expansion
program calling for a big increase in
fighting aircraft and pilots is being
drafted by Chairman Vinson of the
House Naval Committee in co-opera-
tion with the Navy department for
presentation to the next Congress.
The author of the Vinson "treaty
navy" ship-building act today told
reporters the projected program
would call for construction of the
2,100 naval planes already authorized
by Congress but not appropriated for;
development of the Philadelphia na-
val aircraft factory, and increase in
the facilities of the Pensacola, Fla.,
naval aviation training school.
"For national defense and reasons
of economy we need a definite pro-
gram for the increase of our naval
air force," Vinson said. "We also need
a large number of reserve planes for
the aircraft carriers built and build-

naval expansion program, begun in

Diap ragm Of Dog
BOSTON, Aug. 13. - VP) - George,
a five-year-old Sealyham, is frisking
about the Angell Memorial Hospital

ingenious operation, the sewing up of
a rent in his diaphragm. Hospital
officials said it was the first opera-
tion of its kind ever performed on an
The dog's diaphragm, the liveliest
organ in his body since it is in con-
stant motion with every breath, was
ruptured. A two-inch rip, perceived
under X-ray, showed the liver and
small intestines crowding upon the
Rings. The chance of the dog's living
more than a few days under this
condition was one in thousands, doc-
tors said.
Dr, Rudolph H. Sneider, who per-
formed the operation, made an in-
cision in the abdomen after paralyz-
ing the diaphragm by means of anes-
thetic. He then carefully pushed the
protruding organs back into place and
took stitches in the torn membrane.
An ordinary bicycle pump was
used as a means of supplying air to
the lungs. An attendant pumped con-
tinuously for two hours until the op-
eration was completed.y

New Code For
Stock Market
Exchanges Are Required
To File Information On
Their Operations
Buying Public Will
Be Issued Reports
Corporations Also Made
To Register Securities
They AreOffering
WASHINGTON, Aug, 13. - ()-
The Nation's stock exchanges were re-
quired today by the Federal Securities
and Exchange Commission to tell the
world about themselves as a prere-
quisite to doing business.
The Commission issued its first
rules and regulations for the regis-
tration of exchanges and listed secur-
ities. For the most part, they were
searching questions, designed to lay
the basis for future and more drastic
The Commission also required that
corporations whose securities are now
listed must file a registration state-
ment with the secretary. This state-
ment is virtually only a form, to be
superseded later with requirements
for much more detailed data.
Registration Is Required
Registration is required of ex-
changes as a preliminary to doing
business. Similarly, securities on ex-
changes must be registered before
they can be sold.
Registration means simply that ex-
changes and corporations must file
with the Commission certain specified
information about themselves, which
information will be available to the
public in general, and on which the
public may decide whether to buy or
sell securities. .
Chairman Joseph P. Kennedy, at a
press conference, said that the rules
did tiot as yet constitute safe-guards
for investors, but they will give the in-
formation on which such protection
shall be based.
Kennedy stressed that there is still
"a premium on brains and the ability
to analyze conditions" in the purchase
and sale of securities.
Kennedy emphasized also that the
commission's control was no guaran-
tee of the worth of a stock, and that
any person who expected government
supervision to make the market "go
up when he was long, or down when
he was short" was mistaken.
Establish Rules
The rules and regulations did male
a few absolute requirements of ex-
changes in conformity with the Ex-
change Act. Exchanges must have a
rule for the suspension and expulsion
of members, and must specifically
agree to abide by and enforce the
Exchange Act and theCommission's
Officers, directors and principal
stockholders must, beginning in No-
vember, inform the Commission if
they trade in their company's stock.
The Exchange Act provides that prof-
its made from such transactions must
go into the company's treasury.
The rules also exempt certain se-
curities from registration, and Chair-
man Kennedy emphasized the ex-
emption of foreign government and-
corporation securities. It was neces-
sary to exempt these, he said, to pro-
tect American investors, who might
otherwise suffer if foreign agencies
decided not to list their securities.

Hope of salvaging slim harvest

More showers were promised for
some of the central states-Illinois
and Indiana - and forecasters said
weather changes should be more rap-

the drought's third long siege might
be lifting.
Generally, the precipitation came
too late to aid major field crops, but
it came as money from the skies for
farmers striving to meet an acute
water shortage.
Where there were substantial rains,
they freshened prospects of obtain-
ing late crops the farmer had planted
in an attempt to grow some seed for
the fall. Scorched pastures were
given a new lease on life, and'-their

President Roosevelt in conferences on

chase of any foodstuffs which might
otherwise go to waste and laid down
an emphatic ultimatum against poli-
tics in the relief campaign.
He authorized Aubrey Williams, as-
sistant federal relief administrator,

A. Wallace to draft a plan for Gov-
ernment purchase of hay and fruits
in small quantities which might not
otherwise be harvested.
Relief For Small Growers

marily to afford relief for the small
growers. He said there was no con-
