Le gion Member
To Get Parole
Leslie Black To Go Free
If He Can Get Work
LANSING, Aug. 8--P)-The State
Parole Board today said it would
grant a parole to Leslie Black, mem-
ber of the notorious Black Legion
sentenced to prison for conspiring to
incite a riot in Detroit, as soon as he
could find employment.
Black was sentences to the State
Prison of Southern Michigan May 6,
1937, by Recorder's Judge John J.
Maher for a term of one to five
years. He was accused of participat-
ing in an attempt to break up a
political meeting at Detroit Northern
High School in behalf of Maurice
Sugar, Detroit Attorney. The alleged
conspirators were claimed to have
circulated literature purporting to
come from the Communist Party and
endorsing Sugar as a candidate for
Recorder's Court. They also tried to
cut power lines into the building, the
prosecution alleged.
forest nursery. This nursery, only
three years old, will soon have a
capacity of 42 million seedlings of
which about,15 million will be used
each year for planting on the Ottawa
National Forest. White, red, and jack
pines and white spruce are raised in
this nursery. A new cold storage
plant enables the nurseryman always
to be ready to ship planting stock at
a moment's notice. An overhead
sprinkler system will allow the 60
acres of the seedlings to come
through the hottest periods un-
harmed. The sprinkler system also
affords a quick and efficient means
of fertilizing the beds-a liquid fer-
tilizer being sent directly through the
irrigation system.
The Watersmeet District Headquar-
ters, Paulding CCC Camp, a timber
stand improvement area, a forest
plantation, a timber slye area, and
a stop at a recreational project on
Norway Lake completed the trip.
Mr. Hendee, Ranger Melick, and
Ranger Roberts stayed at Camp Fili-
bert Roth for dinner. After all the
questions had been answered, every-
one was ready. to retire. It had been
a long day, but an interesting and
instructive one.

A trip by truck over a representa-
tive area of the Ottawa National For-
est broke the daily routine of class
work for the 62 foresters in Camp
Filibert Roth last week. The entire
camp personnel made the trip which
began at 7:30 in the morning and
ended with a late supper at 6:45 p. m.
Clare Hendee, the Supervisor of the
Ottawa National Forest took time off
from his regular duties and acted as
chief guide. Ranger Max Melick of
the Watersmeet district and Ranger
T. E. Roberts of the Kenton district
also accompanied the group.
The first stop was made at the
Watersmeet Fish Hatchery where,
Mr. Marks, the superintendent, ex-
plained the work of this department
of the Conservation Commission. Here
lake, brook, and rainbow, as well as
German brown trout are hatched
from eggs and are reared in specially

constructed tanks which have water
at a constant temperature of 50 de-
grees F. running through them. Over
1,800,000 trout are raised at this hat-
chery every year. The young trout
are fed on a diet of ground beef
hearts until, after three months, they
have reached a large enough size to
be transferred to the rearing ponds.
Here they are fed liver, heart, and
some commercial foods until ready
for "planting" in the 3,000 miles of
trout streams this hatchery supplies.
In addition to the trout this hatchery
annually "plants" one million blue-
gills, 100,000 bass, 100,000 perch, and
15 million wall-eyed pike in the 800
lakes of this district.
The Toumey Nursery at Waters-
meet was the next stopping place.
Here nursery superintendent Snyder

tion on the problems of running a


The next to the last weekend of the Summer Session has passed to the
Great Beyond, and with its passing comes a noticeable slowing down of
campus social life as exams and other sinister worries
raise their ugly heads.
