Navy Searches For Flie
Around Howland Island:
Fuel Shortage Blamed
Shark Threat Feared
For Flier, Navigator
WASHINGTON, July 2. - (P) -
Coast Guard headquarters were ad-
vised tonight that Amelia Earhart
was believed to have fallen into the
Pacific shortly after 4 p.m. (E.S.T.)
A message from the cutter Itasca,
stationed in the vicinity of How-
land Island in the mid-Pacific, said:
"Earhart unreported at Howland
at 6 p.m. (E.S.T.). Believe down
shortly after 4 p.m. Am searching
probable area and will continue."
Earlier, the coast guard had ordered
the cuter Roger B. Taney to proceed
from Honolulu to Howland Island to
aid in the search for Miss Earhart.
Fear was expressed that Earhart
and her navigator, Fred Noonan,
might be threatened by sharks, which
infest the Pacific along the equator.
WASHINGTON, July 2.-(IP)-Ad-
miral William D. Leahy, chief of
naval operations, instructed the com-
,nandant of the naval station at Hon-
olulu tonight to render whatever aid
he may deem practicable in the
search for Amelia Earhart.
Leahy acted after receiving word
from the coast guard that Miss Ear-
hart was believed to have been forced
:lown in the Pacific in the vicinity
of Howland Island.
A number of fast surface vessels,
mostly destroyers, are now at Hon-
olulu, as well as more than a score
of long range naval bombing planes.
Honolulu is approximately 1,600
miles from Howlands.
The coast guard headquarters here
received information that Miss Ear-
, art probably ove'-shot tiny How-
land Island because she was blinded
by the glare of an ascending sun.
The message from the Coast Guard
Cutter Itasca said it was believed
Miss Earhart passed northeast of
Howland Island about 2:20 p.m.
The cutter's skipper expressed be-
lief the Earhart plane had descended
into the sea within 100 miles of How-
The battle force commander at
Pearl Harbor later sent word to the
Navy Department that he was pre-
pared to send a patrol plane to How-
land Island to assist in the search.
He said the plane could leave at
about midnight (E.S.T.) and asked
the navy department for advice.

By BRENT DOW ALLINSON
Under the auspices of the Carnegie
Endowment for International Peace
and with the cooperation of the po-
litical science department, a Sumier
Institute of International Law opened
its five-week session this week, in
Hutchins Hall in the Law School, for
the sixth consecutive summer, with a
distinguished faculty of four visiting
professors and the attendance of 45r
advanced students and teachers, who
have come to Ann Arbor, by invita-
tion of the Division of International
Law of the Endowment, whose direc-
tor is Dr. James Brown Scott, of
Washington, D. C.
The Endowment has employed the
faculty and reimbursed the invited
members of the Institute for their
traveling expenses, as part of its pro-j
gram, originally suggested by the latej
Andrew D. White, of encouraging the'
study and improving the teaching
of international law in the Jnited

visions of the Endowment, likewise

Increased Summer School
Facilities Also Factor
In Large Enrollment
Great Demand For
Increased enrollment of 13 per cent
in this year's summer graduate school
is due to steadily increasing standards
for teachers set by boards of educa-
tion, and to the special facilities in
the Electronics, Linguistics, and Far
Eastern institutes, according to Dean
Clarence E. Yoakum of the graduate
school, and Prof. Louis A. Hopkins,
Summer Session director.
High schools are demanding mas-
ter's degrees, and colleges are asking
doctorates; and teachers hoping for
promotions find necessary extra in-
struction, Dean Yoakum said. Ap-
proximately 250 master's degrees will
be earned this summer in the grad-
uate school. Salary raises are auto-
matic in many school systems for such
additional endeavor, he said.
Factor Is Rackham School
Development of the Rackham
School for Graduate Studies is an-
other factor presented by the dean
as favorable to achieving the record
in enrollment, as well as the fact that
a larger number of people are now at-
tending colleges and desire special
work in some field of learning.
While the graduate school registra-
tion has increased by 289 persons
over this time last year, the under-
graduate school has dropped 57 reg-
istrants below last year's mark. Pro-
fessor Hopkins said that the grad-J
uate school figure would reach 400'
when many teachers arrive here next
week for a special course in the School
of Education after the National Ed-
