'Brother Rats'

June Brings Sharp Upswing In Stocks

the blase New Yorkers thought that
"Brother Rat" was a gangster play,
and, bored by the prospect of two and
a half hours of arson, murder and
contingent violence, stayed away.
After a strenuous popularizing
campaign in the newspapers, and just
at the point where producer Abbott
was ready, because of mounting ex-
penses, to consign VMI and its va-
ried assortment of plebes and up-
per classmen to the limbo of Broad-
way flops, the play caught on. Ac-
cording to "Variety," it was "Broth-
er Rat," which really lifted Abbott
into the "success" bracket, despite
his earlier productions, for it has
made him more than any three
plays which herhas produced.
Action in the play centers around
a dizzy baseball pitcher who has the
misfortune (or good fortuine) to be
informed, just at the height of the
baseball season, by his secretly mar-
ried spouse that she is expecting a
blessed event. "How can a guy pitch
a baseball game when he is having a
baby," the bewilder.ed pitcher moans.

)938 JUN E
A sharp upward swing in the last days of June gave the month a
record as having produced the greatest advance since 1933. In the final
day of trading, the market slid off slightly. This chart, based on the
Associated Press average of 60 stocks, has June widened to give the
whole picture of the upturn.

First Meeting
Of Schoohnen
Attracts 400
C. E. Murphy of St. John's
Made President, Courtis
Lectures About Europe
A record crowd of 400 attended
the first meeting of th* Men's Ed-
ucation club June 30 at the Union,
elected C. E. Hinchey, principal at
the high school at St. John's, Mich.,
president for the coming session and
listened to Prof. S. A. Courtis of
the education school lecture on
"Some Impressions of the European
Four directors were also selected
at the meeting: E. V. Ropt, superin-
tendent of schools, Paw Paw, and a
member of the 1937 Legislature;
Julian W. Smith, principal Lake View
High School, Battle Creek; Harley
W. Holmes, superintendent of schools,
Marshall, Mich., and former Presi-
dent of the Michigan Education As-
sociation; and L. A. Packard, super-
intendent of schools, Port Huron.
Dr. Courtis has just returned from
his semester's leave of absence which
he spent in European travel. He em-
phasized the difficulty of securing
the truth concerning the actual sit-
uation in European countries and
called attention to the misrepresen-
tation of American conditions that
was prevalent in some countries of
Europe. He urged that teachers as-
sume a greater degree of responsibil-
ity for the dissemination of truth as
a basis for building friendlier under-
standings between nations. Dr. Cour-
tis also declared that there was so
much suspicion, distrust, and un-
friendliness betwee: European na-
tions that ware at any time was a
possibility. He commented on the
uniform courtesy and consideration
that was extended to the members of
his party by officials of all countries
that he visited.
The next meeting of the Club will
be held on Monday, July 11, in the
ballroom of the Michigan Union.

Reuben T. Shaw, head of the science department of a Philadelphia
high school, is shown with Caroline S. Woodruff, of Castleton, Vt., whom
he succeeds as president of the National Education Association, world's
largest group of educators, following election in New York.

Much to somebody's disgust, the
Yankees won't know where to put
Keller and Rosar. In spite of this
year's slump, the Yankee outfield of
Di Maggio, Selkirk, Henrick, Powell
is pullenty strong. And as for any-
body replacing Bill Dickey-tsk, tsk.
But the New York management
isn't going to let these two babies get
away. So it may be that New York
will be the hub.of next year's trad-
ing season. But Keller and Rosar
won't be the ones to be traded.
