BIOLOGICAL STATION
An eventful week-end climaxed the
last seven days here at Douglas Lake.
Several ditnitaries were called away;
suddenly from a party held Saturday
evening centering about the tall
stories of the taller Paul Bunyan, in
order to entertain a porcupine, who1
was at first mistaken for a skunk,
and who was seeking entrance to the'
main party of the evening.
The porcupine, found wandering
about camp bravely in the vicinity of1
the Vertebrate Laboratory, was evi-
dently a parent of the small one
caught several days ago, and from all
indications was seeking it.
A party of 23 students under Prof.
F. C. Gates took the Inland Waters
trip Sunday, July 15, for the pur-
pose of studying aquatic vegetation
and birds. Leaving at 8 a.m., the party
devoted the entire day to the trip,
eating lunch on the boat, and making
only two stops en route.
In the afternoon of the same day,
the parisitology group left on their
annual picnic to Sturgeon Bay on
Lake Michigan. The picnickers swam

in the lake, coasted, and finally had
supper on the beach.
Visitors to the 'camp this week3
were Rex Martin and Mrs. Martin of
Detroit, former students at the Biol-
ogical Station; Mrs. Mae McNeill
Barnhardt of Ann Arbor; the Misses
Bertha and Ethel Stockard of Lake
Dollas, Texas, sisters of Prof. Alfred
A. Stockard of the camp faculty; and
Prof. H. W. Hann of the zoology de-
partment, with Mrs. Hann and their
son, Wilbur.

Investigation
Of Bond Racket
Made By House
WASHINGTON, July 17. -)-
A House committee investigating che
real estate bond tangle sifted today
what members termed a $25,000,000
"ra~cket."
It prepared a questionnaire to ob-
tain more light on the activities of
some "bondholders protective com-
mittees." Complaints have been re-
ceived, members said, that some such
"committees" have been squeezing
investors by charging high fees, writ-
ing up exorbitant repair costs on the
property back of the bonds and other
wasteful practices.

Usually crowded with street cars and automobiles, San Francisco's
Market street presented a strange, deserted appearance as the city began
to feel the effects of the general strike. Autos were scarce because of
a gasoline shortage, and the only street cars in motion were occasional
municipal cars. This view looks toward the famous Ferry building on
the waterfront.

up of the building corporation limits
the profits of the stockholders and
presumably gives purchaser or tenant
better value for their money, he ex-
plained.
These projects, according to the
speaker, have sometimes been termed
philanthropic, though the strength
of this motive is only relative and in
contrast with the practises of certain
speculative builders, he asserted.
"In this class of controlled private
investment construction we must
place employers' housing dwellings
built by an industrial corporation
for its workers."
Some of these types of housing
projects as. described by Professor
Bennett, were the Kohler project in
Kohler, Wis., the Michigan Boulevard
Garden Apartments in Chicago,.for
Negroes, the -Buhl Foundation Hous-
ing Project in Pittsburgh, and the City
Housing Corporation of Radburn, New
Jersey.
A third approach to housing, as
cited by Professor Bennett, is by direct
government aid.
"Strange as it may seem," he stated,
"our federal and some state govern-
ments have, before the new deal, said
and done something about housing."
Government In Housing
Describing the hand that the gov-
ernment played in housing, Professor
Bennett said that during the World
War, in order to facilitate the pro-
duction of munitions and supplies, the
Federal government went into hous-
ing. The ordinance department built
45,000 homes for workmen at the
various plants. The United States
Shipping Board loaned $69,000,000
to realty companies incorporated by
ship-building corporations for the
building of ship-worker's houses.
In the interests of housing,useveral
states have dabbled in housing legis-
lation but to little effect, according to
Professor Bennett. In New York State,
due to the acute post-war shortage,
certain definite steps have been made.
As the law in that state now stands,
approved projects may be granted
tax exemptions on building cost for
20 years, a considerable factor in the
cost of a project and on the otheri
hand in the income of the city, the
speaker explained.
"The housing problem, in the light
of what we have seen, is, like farm
relief and prohibition, not to be an-
swered off-hand or by passing a law.
Practically no low-cost housing has
been built."
Must Correlate Factors
Concluding, Professor Bennett said,
"It would be necessary to properly
correlate several factors and this has
yarely been done. Some of the factors
are: the establishment of a reasonable
standard of living; proper land values
for housing; sound and cheap financ-
ing; thorough planning of region, city,
neighborhood, and buildings, and re-
search in construction."
"We still have the housing problem
and its solution is still ahead of us."
Detroit Banks Near
Settlement Is Report
WASHINGTON, July 17. - (P) -
The tangled Detroit bank situation
was reported authoritatively here to-
day nearing final settlement with the
prospect that assets of at least one of
the two giant closed institutions will
be takei over shortly by a liquidating
corporation.

The comptroller of the currency
has been working on a plan to take
both the Guardian National Bank and
Trust Co. group of banks and the
First National bank out of the hands
of receivers and dispose of their as-
sets to liquidating corporations.
The Guardian National situation
is such that this can easily be done.
The first national, however, is in-
volved in a law suit filed by a group
of depositors who claim their deposits
were guaranteed fully when the First
National took over a* savings bank
several years ago.

Energetic'At, 72,

By ALEXANDER H. UHL
PARIS, July 17. - .P) - France's
bantam foreign minister, Louis Bar-
thou, at 72 is looking for new worlds
to conquer.
In the midst of a whirlwind cam-
paign from one corner of Europe to
the other, weaving back and forth
the threads of French defense against
Germany, the bristling little foreign
minister, his friends say, has ambi-
tions to step into the shoes of Pre-
mier Gaston Doumergue.
Country Calls Doumergue
Not that there is any rivalry be-
tween the two men, but Doumergue,
though a year younger than Barthou,
is eager to get back to his cabbages
in his beloved country place at Tour-
nefeuille to which he retired after his
term as president ended in 1931.
Barthou, on the other hand, after
rusticating in the senate for several
years, has thrown himself back into

Kahn Lectures
On nfct}nTo
Education Body
Preventative- 1Medicine,
Field Now -Doing Much
Research, He Says
The members of Phi Delta Kappa,
honorary education fraternity, heard
a short speech by Dr. Reuben L. Kahn,
director of the clinical laboratory of
the University Hospital, at their
weekly luncheon yesterday at the
Union. The subject of the talk was,
"Immunity to Infection, a Physio-
logical Function."
In his discussion of this subject, Dr.
Kahn showed that, just as it is nat-
ural for certain parasitic forms of
life to live upon other higher forms
of life, so it is also natural for these
latter forms to build up a resistance
against them. He said that this de-
fense mechanism was of two kinds.
There is the local resistance such as
is offered by the membrane of the
skin, a resistance which is strength-
ened by long exposure; and there is
the other form of defense mechanism,
carried on chiefly by the respiratory
and circulatory system, which pro-
tects the organism as a whole, he
stated.
Dr. Kahn explained that research
on this angle of preventive medicine
is being carrie don with considerable
activity at present, and that discov-
eries along these lines will have an
important effect on both the theory
and practice of future medical ad-
vances.

better seen when men are consid-
ered separately. The percentages now
engaged in teaching. are for 1929,
64.4; 1930, 61.5; 1931, 59.3; 1932, 48.4;
and 1933, 25.6.
"Clerical work with a total of 78
has claimed a larger number of the
group than any other occupation ex-
cept teaching; selling, social service,
and unskilled labor ranking next in
order. Nearly all of those engaged in
clerical and sale work are women,
and in unskilled labor are men."
Among other facts brought out by
the study were: only 29 per cent of
the class of 1933 who reported their
earnings were earning more than
$1,000 per year while 32 per cent of
the class of 1929 were earning more
than $1,500 per year. Sixty-four per
cent of the 1933 bachelor's degree
group studied had experienced a per-
iod of unemployment exclusive of
summer vacation after graduation.
Use Appointment Bureau
For nearly two-thirds of these this
period exceeded four months. Of the
similar group for 1932, 67 per cent
reported unemployment for a time,
the period for 58 students or 63 per
cent of those reporting some unem-
ployment exceeding eight months.
Earlier classes reported a smaller
amount of unemployment but 28
bachelors and 14 masters of the class-
es from 1929 to 1931 said they had
been without work for two years or
more since graduation. Of the mas-
ters, nine were men. A large part of
these graduates are making use of the
University Bureau of Appointments in
seeking positions, 80 per cent of the
class of 1933 and even 43 per cent of
the class of 1929 reporting that they
are now registered with the Bureau.
Both men and women included in
the study devote more time to gen-
eral reading than to any other kind
but second in favor among the wom-
en is fiction while second with the
men is social and economics problems
material.
The median number of hours de-
voted to recreation per week aside
from reading is 10, but a surpris-
ingly large number report that these
activities claim in excess of 18 hours
per week. This is true of 10 to 17.4
per cent of the women in the differ-
ent classes, the 1932 and 1933 classes
showing the largest percentages.
Men Favor Outdoor Sports
Recreations of a social type -
dances, parties, cards, clubs - take
first place with the women; theatres
and movies come second; and outdoor
sports and games a poor third. Out-
door sports and games rank first with
the men by a decisive margin, social
activities having a slight lead for
second place over theatres and mov-
ies.
Community service activities out-

claim little of the time and interest
of these graduates. In answer to the'
question "Are you engaged in any
kind of community service without
pay?" only 27.6 per cent of the wom-
en and 34.5 per cent of the men hold-
ing bachelor's degrees replied in the
affirmative.
Of those participating in such ac-
tivities only 58 per cent reported de-
voting more than two hours per week
and 25 per cent more than four hours
per week to them. This indicates
that about one in three of the whole
group participates in unpaid com-
munity service and that less than one
in five devotes more than two hours
per week to this work. Church work,
scouting, and dramatics stand at the
head of the list of these activities.

administrative work with a zest and

Bathou Mends Fences
With his arrival at the Quai d'Or-
say, Barthou immediately set about
a hardening of French foreign policy
which already has brought Berlin
charges that he is seeking to isolate
Germany by stretching around her
a chain of countries linked to France
by treaty.
Barthou himself Znakes no secret
of his desire to strengthen France
by every possible means. In the few
months he has been in office, he has
covered thousands of miles on fence
mending expeditions to Warsaw, Pra-
ha, Bucharest and Belgrade.
Then London was added to his
itinerary and there is likelihood that
he will see Mussolini in Italy this
fall.
Sees Cup Matches
In between times he managed to
get to Roland Garros Stadium where
he sat with the rest of the world, a
handkerchief under his straw hat,
and sweltered through the Franco-
German and Franco-Australian Da-
vis cup matches.
His energy has so impressed po-
litical leaders that President Lebrun
is believed to be grooming him to
take over the government should
Doumergue go.
That Barthou, who was premier for
seven months in 1913, dreams of
taking over the reins again, 72 years
or no 72 years, was indicated in a
recent remark to friends:
"Clemenceau, who became premier
for the first time at 65, formed his
great war ministry in 1917 at the age
of 76. I still have some time before
me!"
