OAKLAND, Calif., July 28.-(A)-
To find out whether the Arctic re-
gions are suitable for big scale colon-
ization is the object of a 14-month
research trip mapped by Dr. Victor
E. Levine. He has taken a leave of
absence from his chair of biological
chemistry at Creighton University,
Omaha, and sailed for Point Barrow,
Alaska, on the coast guard cutter Du-
"The population of the world is in-
creasing at about 20 million persons
a year," said Dr. Levine. "In years to
come new areas will have to be op-
ened up for human habitation.
"How the food and climate of the
Arctic regions will react on people
from tropic and temperate climates
is what I hope to find out."

An outbreak of rabies became im-
minent in Washtenaw County yes-
terday despite a dog quarantine
placed in effect more than a month
ago with the announcement that a
dog which had bitten at least three
persons and a number of other dogs
in the city had died of rabies, accord-
ing to a brain examination of the dead
dog by the local Pasteur Institute.
It was the first case in three or
four years in which it was definitely
known thathpeoplegin Ann Arbor had
been bitten by a dog which was proved
to be rabid.
Those known to have been bitten

E. Ann St.
Roy Brown 23 years old, of Pollard,
Ark., an orderly at University Hos-
Brown was bitten when he came
too close to the dog while it was tied
up at a gas station at N. Ashley St.
and Miller Ave., operated by the own-
er of the dog, Clyde Hudson. The
dog, which was quite small, brown,
longhaired, and part Pomeranian, is
known to have bitten at least one
other dog which has been ordered
tied for 10 days.
Dr. John A, Wessinger, city health)
officer, yesterday asked all owners of
dogs which may have been exposed
to the rabid one to keep them tied for
10 days in order that it may be de-
termined whether or not they have
contracted the disease. Neighbors of
the Hudsons and nearby children
who may have been exposed to the
dog were advised to take the Pas-
teur treatments. The city furnishes
the anti-rabies treatment free of
charge to all asking for it, according
to Dr. Wessinger, and those unable
to pay for physician's treatment will
be given the injections at the county's
expense either at the Pasteur Insti-
tute or by Dr. Edwin C. Ganzhorn,
county physician, if a written order
is first obtained from a member of
the board of supervisors.
Brown, the hospital orderly, left for
a trip to Pollard, Ark., the day after
he was bitten, and the .Pollard Police
Depatrment was notified by wire yes-
terday to inform Brown the dog was
rabid. The Hudson dog is believed to
have contracted the disease when he
was taken to Mt. Clemens, where it
is prevalent.
It was also reported to police yes-
terday that eight-year-old Fred Eib-
ler, 406 E. Jefferson Ave., had been
bitten by a dog owned by Oscar
Goetz, 508 S. Division St. The dog
was ordered tied.
Faculty Beaten
By Cubs; Yanks
Heavy slugging by all teams in
both the University and Educational
League made the scores look very
much like a final card game report
Thursday afternoon.
In the University league, the Cubs
triumphed over the Faculty to the
tune of 10 to 8, while the Chemist
boys were easing out a victory over
the Yankees 4 to 3. The Cards were
idle today leaving their percentage
the same, at 4 games won and 1 lost,
but with the other teams playing such
clubs as the Chemists having lost
all previous games raised their per-
centage to .200, by virtue of their
victory over the Yankees.
In the Educational League Thurs-
day, the Tigers trounced the Pan-
thers quite decisively 22 to 8. The
Bees increased their games won to
2 because of their victory over the
Indians by the score of 11 to 8. There
is still one more game to be played
