hardest fought campaign in Michi-
Republican and Democrat leaders
had their programs defined, as the
result of keynote directions brought
to them last week by political figures
of national repute. The platforms
upon which candidates on the state
ticket and those on the congressional
and senatorial slates will stand were
clarified. The deadline for qualifica-
tion in the primary contests - July
24- was approaching and signs that
the contest for preference is about
to expand were visible.
Workers Being Named
Howard C. Lawrence, chairman of
the Republican state central commit-
tee, said workers are being named in
every county and community. Walter
I. McKenzie, newly elected chairman
of the Democratic central committee,
plans to take over the work of or-
ganizing for the coming fight from
W. Alfred Debo, resigned head of the
state organization. Both parties.hope
to use their so-called "young" group
to effective purpose. '
The Republicansewere ordered into
battle at Jackson Saturday by such
prominent party figures as Henry P.
Fletcher, national chairman, and
United States Senator Arthur H. Van-
denberg. The call to arms issued by
these leaders included the following

GEOLOGICAL FIELD STATION
The 15th annual summer session
of the University's Geological and
Geographical Field Station at Mill
Springs, Kentucky, is well under way
in its third week under the direction
of Professor George M. Ehlers, who
has been director of the Station for
the last ten years.
The total population of the camp
this year is 37, an increase of 6 over
the 1933 figures. Of these, six make
up the faculty, 27 are students, and
the others are enrolled in the mess
department, camp building and
grounds department, and other such

Miss Marion Schmidt, «a graduate
student taking work in geology this
summer, is the first woman to study
at the Station.. While she is officially
enrolled at the Field Station, she
lives in the town of Monticello, nine
miles from camp.
Joseph A. Bursley, Dean of Stu-

some of the rock formations in nearby
Indian caves with Professor Ehlers,
examining a rock house in which
many Indian relics have been found.
They also made a tour of the sur-
rounding country, and of the camp it-
self. On the Fourth the Station's
ball team started a game with Monti-

KEEP DEATH PACT
NORWALK, CONN., July 9. - (P)
-- A death pact was the police ex-
planation today of the death of
Robert J. Easton, 64-year-old real
estate man, and his 13-year-old
daughter Jayne, in the gas filled ga-
rage under their home here. Financial
difficulties, the police said, probably
furnished the motive. A $2,000 trust
fund established for the girl by her
mother, who died eight years ago,
had shrunk to $200.

Division of Hygiene and Public

bring into closer contact the stu-
dents and faculty of various depart-
ments of the University. The School
of Music has a faculty of 25 members
while the enrollment of Summer Ses-
sion students in this school has
reached 175. Of this number 100 are
regular students and 75 special.

53,000 Expected To See Game
Between All-Star Teams Today
The most glamorous one-day show
of the entire baseball year is offered
to the baseball-following public today
when the all-star teams of the Ameri-
can and National Leagues will meet,
at the Polo Gounds, New York, before
what is now estimated as a paying
crowd of 53,602 customers. The gate of
approximately $60,000 will go to the
players' benevolent fund.
Handpicked in keeping with most
of fandom's preference as registered
by a nation-wide ballot, the two
teams will be directed by last year's
World Series' managers, Bill Terry
'of the Giants, and Joe Cronin of
Terry has nominated Carl Hubbell,
southpaw ace of the world champion
Giants, to start on the mound for the
Nationals to face a batting-order of

Chuck Klein, Wally Berger, Kiki Cuy-
ler or Mel Ott, Arky Vaughan, re-
placing Travis Jackson at short, Terry
and Gabby Hartnett or Al Lopez.
The game will be the first meeting
of the two brilliant southpaws, and
Gomez will be matching his blinding
speed with the "scientific" offerings
of the Giant star, including the f a-
Terry expects to use most or all
the four right-handers who complete
his staff, and in the order in which
they may appear, they are Lon War-
neke, Dizzy Dean, Van Mungo, and
Cronin also has a collection of right-
handed mound alternates, Charlie
Ruffing, Mel Harder, Tommy Bridges,
and Jack Russell.
Both managers are expected to
make frequent substitutions in order
to give all men on both squads some
action, even if only as a pinch-hitter.
The Americans have Mickey Cochrane
and Rick Ferrell to substitute for
Dickey behind the bat, Jimmy Foxx
and Tommy Dykes for infield relief,
and Sam West, Earl Averill, and Ben
Chapman for outfield replacements.
Jackson On Bench
Terry's reserves include Travis
Jackson, his original choice at short
but whom physicians have forbidden,
to play because of an eye-infection,3
Pepper Martin and Billy Herman, in-
fielders, and Paul Waner, outfielder.
Terry is far from decided as to his
starting lineup, and has reserved de-
cisions as to starting Cuyler or Ott
in centerfield, Chuck Klein or Joe
Medwick in left, and Hartnett or Lo-
pez as catcher.
The all-star game will be the center
of baseball attraction, for the sched-
ules of both leagues have been sus-
pended for yesterday and today. In
the meantime, the Giants remain in
first place in the National League, two
games ahead of the fast-coming Chi-
cago Cubs, while in the American
League the Yankees remain on top, if
slightly less securely, a half-game
ahead of the Tigers.
While the American League team,
with is mighty offensive, will be bet-
ting favorites to repeat last year's win,
the Nationals look to Terry's strategy
and luck, but much will depend upon
the mound performances of the two
southpaws named to start.

Both Your Houses'
For Four-Day Run
Maxwell Anderson's Pulitzer prize
play, "Both Your Houses," will be1
the fourth production of the Michi-
gan Repertory Players, opening Wed-1
nesday, July 11, for a four-day run
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
"Both Your Houses," a satire on na-
tional politics, derives its title from
Mercutio's dying. speech in "Romeo
and Juliet" - "A plague o'both yourl
houses," which Anderson paraphrases
as "a plague on both your major po-
The plot of the play is based upon
what happens when an idealistic
school teacher comes to Washington,
resolved to do away with graft and
corruption in the national govern-
ment. According to Valentine B.
Windt, director, "It will not only be
of interest to those who know and
thoroughly understand national gov-
ernment, but it will also furnish en-
tertainment to those who are novices
at politics. Its swift-moving satire
stands out in vivid contrast to the
leisurelyaction of the first three pro-
ductions of the Repertory Players."
"Both Your Houses" was produced
by the Theatre Guild at the Theatre
Royale in New York last season, where
it had a nine-weeks run.
Club Meets To Sing

The meeting was held at 7:15 in the
Alumnae Room in the League. When
the members entered they were di-
vided into three groups and were
given fifteen minutes in which to
compose a song to some popular
tune. These were then sung and
judged. A short business meeting fol-
lowed, and after that all the group
joined in for some community sing-
The next meeting will be held on
July 16th. A movie will be presented
by Miss Jennie Franseth which was

students at the Ionia High school.
