Forty-seven hundred years ago an
Egyptian artist made a bas-relief
showing a cattle driver for the tomb
of a noble. Yesterday it was among
the exhibits viewed at the Detroit In-
stitute of Arts by students who made
the second excursion of the Summer
Besides the Institute of Arts, the
group of 36 which made the trip
with Prof. Carl J. Coe, director of
excursions, visited the Detroit News
plant, Belle Isle, the Fisher Building,
and the Detroit Public Library. The
party, of whom 28 were women and
8 men, left for Detroit at 8 a.m. yes-
terday, filling one bus to capacity,
with foi~r peopel left over who came
Afterthe standing room only sign had
been put up. The extra four made the
trip just the same, however.
The plant of the Detroit News was
reached at 9:20, and fifteen minutes
later, after signing the guest reg-
ister, the party set out on a tour of
the building. The first stop was at the
studios of Radio Station WWJ on the
fourth floor, which was followed by
a stop at the engraving department,
where Mr. Pendleton explained the
engraving process..
See Photographic Studios
Next the group viewed the News
photographic studios, where there is
a display of queer cloud formations
snapped from an airplane at an alti-
tude of about 7,500 feet, the art de-
partment, the hospital, and the Want
d Boardi, whee over 1,500,000 want
ads were takenin 193. At te tel&-
phone exchange next door to the
Want Ad board, an average of 3,000
phone calls are handled each day.
Next the reference department of
the paper were visited, where in the
various rooms are stored about 600,-
000 photographs, 70,000 cuts, and
125,000 clippings are filed to make up
the "morgue." This was followed by a
visit to the George B. Catlin Memo-
rial Library, a library of about 24,-
000 volumes, where employees of the
News may read in their spare time, or
obtain books to take home.
Visit Composing Room
At this point the party left the
editorial side of the paper, and took
a swing down through the composing
room and the press-rooms. Here they
saw among other things a battery of
60 linotype machines, machines that
make mats of entire pages, casting
machines that cast the semi-circular
metal page forms from the page mats,
the smaller presses that print the
rotogravure and colored sections, a
huge retort for remelting the 16 tons
of metal used every day in printing
the editions of the News, and the main
battery of presses in the main press
room, where it is possible for the
machines to print, cut, fold, and
count 350,000 48-page papers in an
hour. The tour was completed by
stops at the cafeteria and the business
office, after which the party set out
on a 90-minute tour ow down-town
Detroit and Belle Isle on the Detroit:
At noon the group reached the
Fisher Building on Grand Boulevard,
where they were shown the special
features of the building, with com-
ments on'the beautiful decorative
scheme of the building. Gold leaf
alone used in the decoration of the
with two tiers of balconies, represents
Main Lobby, which is four stories high
an outlay of $65,000, and the pan-
elling and walls are made of many
varieties of marble, onyx, and other
such stones, to get a distinctive color
scheme from the mingling of different
shades of stone.
WJR Next Stop
The visit to the Fisher Theatre was
exceptional, both because of the Az-
tec motif and the air-cooling system,
and the tour was completed by a visit
to the car-storage system, which has
a garage on each of the first eleven
stories, with a double spiral ramp for
mounting and descending cars, and a
visit to station WJR on the 28th floor.
Then the group had luncheon in the
air-cooled cafeteria in the basement.
The first stop of the afternoon was

held, has outlined two main objec-
tives for the new organization, ac-
cording to Mr. Smith, who is serving
as secretary.
"The new bureau," he said, "will
attempt to assemble facts useful to
members of the legislature, to indi-
vidual citizens, or to citizens' coun-
cils organized in various cities."
The Bureau, Mr. Smith emphasized,
will in no way attempt to influence
legislation but will serve primarily in
its capacity as a research organiza-
tion. "It is our hope," he said, "that
the Bureau will be of state service."
The second function of the Bureau,
according to Mr. Smith, will be that
of a co-ordinating unit for much of
the research done by faculty mem-
bers and students in the University.
A vast amount of the research done
here, he explained, is worked with no
definite objective in view as to actual
events transpiring, and the new or-
ganization will attempt to make this
material presentable for practical us-
"There- is really no place in the
State of Michigan where citizens can
turn to for such information," Mr.
Smith stated. "We hope that the
establishment of this work will serve
to fill this need."
Golf Sessions Planned

As Parsee, An Influential
Group In India
Two lectures, one at 5 p.m.and
one at 8 p.m., tomorrow, will feature
the continuance of the second week
of Summer Session lectures.
Prof. A. Franklin Shull of the zo-
ology department, will deliver the
first lecture at 5 p.m. in Natural Sci-
ence Auditorium on "The Changing
Direction of Evolutionary Thought."
As a special lecture on the series,
Dr. P. A. Wadia, Dean of the Faculty
of Arts at the University of Bombay,
India, will speak on "The New Reli-
gious Outlook for India."
Professor Shull will review the
various theories of evolution as they
concern the .people in an illustrated
lecture. He will present and discuss
the opposite views in evolution from
a biological viewpoint.
HeadingvToward Genetics
The theories of the earlier evo-
lutionists, who followed chiefly the
theory of adaptation which therefore
precluded the idea of mutations will
also be discussed. According to Pro-
fessor Shull, the latest popular trend
in evolution is toward the theory of
Professor Shull's research work and
study lias been limited chiefly to ge-
netics, heredity, and sex determina-.
tion, which is usually summarized
under one head by zoologists as de-
velopnaental determination.
He received his Bachelor of Arts de-
gree here and his Doctor's degree
from Columbia University.
He was recently elected President
of the American Society of Natural-
ists. A year ago he held the office of
vice-president of the society and pre-
vious to that time was secretary.

Numbered among the other major
scientific societies to which he holds
memberships are The American So-
ciety of Zoologists, Genetics Society
of America, Michigan Academy of
Science, American Genetics Associa-

vancement of Science, and Sigma Xi.
He is the author of the elementary'
textbook used in this and many other
universities entitled "Principles of
Animal Biology."
Dr. Wadia, 60-year-old Indian eco-
nomic expert, has for the past 25
years been professor of economics and
political history at Bombay, accord-
ing to the Rev. Frederick B. Fisher,
pastor of the Methodist Episcopal.

of Dr. Wadia.
Dr. Wadia and his wife will be the
house guests of Dr. and Mrs. Fisher
during their visit in Ann Arbor.
"His English is beautiful and per-
fect," stated Dr. Fisher, "and he has
frequently toured England, lecturing
at Oxford and Cambridge."
He has written a number of books
on readjustment of world markets and
economics as affected by imperialism.
The bulk of his writings, however,
according to Dr. Fisher, has been on
the displacement of economic cur-
rents by imperial conquest.
Is A Parsee

In India his religious creed is that
of a Parsee, which, according to Dr.
Fisher represents the highest and
most cultured people inithatcoun-
try. "Their background is Persian
and, unlike other people of India,
they believe in the thorough educa-
tion of both their women and chil-
dren. They likewise do not believe in
the old customs of India, such as
their women wearing a veil at all
times in public.
"The Parsees are a very prosperous
people," Dr. Fisher explained, "com-
parable to the highest element of the
Jewish race. They work together and
thus have great control over the fi-

Count Wolf Heinrich Heldorf, Nazi
police president of Potsdam, also was
reported to have been shot and killed.
BERLIN, June 30 - (41) - Chan-
cellor Adolf Hitler today crushed a
still-born revolution, riding rough-
shod over foes who attempted to over-
throw his regime.
The Reichswehr - the national -
army - was ordered to be in readiness
throughout Germany.
Reichswehr soldiers, armed with
machine guns, marched down the
great boulevard, Unter-den-linden, in
the heart of the nation's capital.
The soldiers reinforced heavy de-
tails of police who were scattered
throughout the city, wearing steel hel-
mets and armed with rifles.
Capt. Ernest Roehm, long his clos-
est friend and his trusted leader of
the Nazi storm troops, committed sui-
cide when Hitler deposed him and had
him arrested asia conspirator.
Kurt von Schleicher, Itler's prede-
cessor as Chancellor of Germany, was
killed by police when he'resist ed ar-"
rest as a conspirator. Von Schleicher's
wife was killed at the same time,
Von Schleicher Killed
Roehm was regarded as the most
extreme leader of the radical Nazis;
Von Schleicher was the extreme re-
actionary who favored the restoration
of the monarchy to Germany.
Vice Chancellor Franz Von Papen,
the man who two weeks ago warned
Hitler than a second revolution led by
extremists was impending, was taken
into "protective custody" but soon
Besides Roehm, a number of other
storm troop leaders were dead within
a few hours of the time when Hitler
struck. Some of them committed sui-
cile; some of them, were killed resist-
ing arrest.
"An Immoral Spectacle"
The Nazis announced that Roehm
was arrested because he was a con-
spirator, in league not only with Von
Schleicher, but with "a foreign power"
and was, furthermore, of such an im-
moral character that he brought dis-
credit upon the Nazi movement.
The announcement said that when
Roehm and other leaders were ar-
rested under Hitler's personal direc-
tion, these leaders were found en-
gaged in "a spectacle which was so
sad morally that every trace of pity
must needs vanish."
Not only was Roehm thrown out-
to die - but Capt. Karl Ernst, leader
of the storm troops at Berlin, was
summarily disposed.
Lutze New Commander
Hitler at once appointed as his

new commander of the storm troops,
Victor Lutze, who issued this appeal:
"Storm Troop comrades and lead-
ers and men!
"Der Fuehrer (Hitler) has called
me tohis side as chief of staff. The
confidence in me thereby must and
will be justified by myself through
unbounded fidenity to the leader and
measureless devotion to National So-
cialism and thereby to our people.
Asks Fidelity Of Troopers
"When, some 12 years ago, I for
the first time became a leader of a
storm troop unit, I placed three vir-
tues 'at the head of all my actions
and demanded them from the storm
troops. These three virtues made the

Golfers' Victory Gives Michigan
Third National Title Of 1933-34

Koelz Aided By Tibetan Prince
In MakingValuable Collection

When Chuck Kocsis sank his last
putt on the thirty-sixth hole against
Ed White in the National Collegiate
golf meet on Friday to finish one
down, the University of Michigan Var-
sity athletic program for the 1933-
34 year was officially ended.
Records of all previous years were
shattered when Maize and Blue teams
won three national championships to
lead every other university in that
respect. Football, swimming, and golf
teams all won national laurels.
The football title was disputable,
of course -it always is, but Profes-
sor Dickinson and a host of other
sport commentators saw fit to con-
cede the Wolverines the crown when
they were undefeated in "the tough-
est league in the country" and romped

were won by Dick Degener in the
diving, Taylor Drysdale, backstroke;
and the free style relay team of Dal-
rymple, Blake, Kamienski and Ren-
The team also scored more points
than a collegiate aggregation had
previously when they finished second
to the New York A.C. in the Na-
tional A.A.U. They won the Big Ten
title with ease.
The golf team started its most
successful season by winning every
dual meet. The Conference crown was
a cinch with Kocsis having low medal
and Woody Malloy being runner-up.
The rest of the story was told in the
dispatches from Cleveland last week
- "Kocsis has low medal in team
play," "Wolverines take collegiate title
into Middle West for first time." I

In Tibet a gentleman on horseback

his horse when he met Dr. Walter N.

the monks a thousand years. The
personal wealth of Tibetans is jewels,
and they care little for money, but
Surje Dawa persuaded them to sell

Dr. Koelz has been a one-man ex-
pedition sent out by the University
on a major scientific project. He
first went to Tibet in 1930 and after
an absence of nearly two years re-
turned to Ann Arbor with an amaz-
ing collection of birds and plants and
some samples of Tibetan art. After a
few months at home, the University
sent him to Asia again.
