S OSession Tours'
Trip To Proving Ground
d And Campus Excursion
- Most Successful
Approximately 637 students made
is tours conducted by the University
1., this summer, according to Prof. Carl
h J. Coe, director of excursions for the
-2 1934 Summer Session, who announced
attendance totals yesterday after-
ie While this figure was slightly un-
r der the total for 1933, Professor Coe
, pointed out thatrit would have shown
a considerable increase of last year's
2, totals if it had not been necessary to
er cancel the Jackson Prison tour due
d to inability to secure permission for
tn the trip.
n In Professor Coe's opinion, the most
er successful of the tours were the first,
which was a tour of the campus, and
ls the fifth tour, which was the visit to
... the General Motors Proving Grounds'
of at Milford.
ke The tour of the campus was made
j_ by approximately 105 students, a to-
tal greatly exceeding the 1933 total,
when there was the added feature of
a tour of Ann Arbor by automobile.

"I believe the Lord will come on
the Feast of Trumpets," the religious
dictator told his flock at prayer meet-
ing. "And I believe he will come this
year. At the close, of every age God
has called a messenger. In Zion there
will be a little circle, and God will
destroy the rest,
"We are in the end . . . things are
winding up in Zion."
Italian Army,
Is Wfithdrawn
From Border
ROME, Aug 16.-- (AP) -Italy to-
day ordered the withdrawal of the
48,000 troops whom she concentrated
on the Austrian porder at the time
of the Nazi putsch late last month.
Several regiments started south
from the frontier this iorning im-
mediately after their receipt of the
order. They were bound for their
regular camps, 25 to 50 miles away.
Only the normal border garrisons
will be retained near the frontier.
The withdrawal order was cited in
official quarters as proof that Italy
believes the situation in Austria has
been cleared up.
Prince Ernst von Starhemberg, vice
chancellor -of Austria, conferred with
Premier Mussolini two days ago. He
went from Rome. to Venice yester-
day and is expected to return to
Vienna shortly.

- The wife of the Rev. R. H. Askew,
an evangelist who has been missing
from his home here for two days, dis-
closed today that she had received a

he terms the "Four-Square Gospel"
in a tent here for several months,
failed to return from a trip to Smith-

His wife, who is about 50 years
old, turned over to Sheriff Paul Gar-
rison this morning a note which she
received through the mails Wednes-

"Anxious To Get -Going"
"But I slept well last night with the
help of one slight medicine tablet,"
she said. "I was in bed at 9:30 p.m.
and slept through until 3 a.m., and
I am anxious to get going."
A five-mile wind was blowing off-
shore when Florence departed from
the Canadian shore. The water tem-
perature was 74 degrees. The sun
shone brightly at intervals through-
out the day, and by afternoon there
was barely any wind and the lake's
surface was comparatively smooth.
Before her start the girl ate a solid
breakfast of fried bacon and eggs,
but during the trip her nourishment
was limited to liquid foods, princi-
pally meat broths and cocoa which
Coach Schell prepared from time to
time aboard the Cbast Guard craft..
Florence planned to drink the nour-
ishment at two-hour intervals.
