Expect Earhart Back
On Purdue Campus
LAFAYETTE, Ind., July 8.-(~)-
Purdue University, which know
Amelia Earhart well, expects to se
the missing aviatrix back on th(
campus next fall.
Dr. Edward C. Elliott, Purdue
President, other faculty members and
Capt. Lawrence Aretz, manager of
the University airport, were unwav-
ering today in their faith that Mis
Earhart and her navigator, Fred
Noonan, would be rescued.
Dr. Elliott, ill at home with a cold,
told his family he was confident she
would be saved.
Miss Earhart joined the Purdue
faculty last year at the invitation of
Dr. Elliott who was impressed by a
lecture 'she delivered at Indianapolis.
On her office door was the title
"Consultant on Careers for Wom-
en," but she advised both men and
women students on career problems
She left the University last fall on an
indefinite leave of absence.
The metal monoplane in which she
was making her world-girdling
flight was financed in part by pri-
vate contributions from the Purdue
research foundation directors.

WASHINGTON, July 8-(P)-The
Washington tour of Michigan's Cherry

The 15-pound cherry pie Miss Lyon

Address Of Mrs. Muench
Now Milan, Michigan
MILAN, Mich., July 8.-(M)-Prison
dpors clanged shut today behind Mrs.
Nellie Tipton Muench of St. Louis,
principal figure in the sensational
"gift of God" baby case, ending her
long fight for freedom.
Weeping in contrast to the nervous
laughter with which she greeted St.
Louis news photographers' attempts
to photograph her behind dark spec-
tacles and a handkerchief which she
held in front of her face, Mrs. Muench
began a 10-year term at the Federal
Prison Farm here for mail fraud.
She was sentenced with three others
for using the mails to defraud Dr.
Marsh Pitzman, wealthy bachelor
physician of St. Louis.

DETROIT, July 8.-(/P)-The De-

Counseling and vocational guid-
ance should now be an individual
service and not a group service, Prof.
George Myers of the education school
told a group of students yesterday in
the auditorium of the University
high school.
"New emphasis should be placed
upon - self inventory service, and
teachers should realize more fully the
exploratory value of their subject,"
he said.
The main points involved in voca-
tionmal guidance, as pointed out by
Professor Myers, are occupational in-
formation service, self inventory
service, personal data collecting serv-
ice, individual counseling service, vo-
cational preparation, placement and
follow-up and adjustment service.
He spoke of the opposition to vo-
cational guidance, and defined voca-
tional guidance as "the process help-
