22 Students Begin Survey
"Of Geologic Features;
Surveyors Map Sector
By ROY SIZEMORE
(Special to The Daily)
CAMP DAVIS, Jackson, Wyo., July
3.-Engineers and geologists settled
down today for six more weeks of
field work as a scorching sun con-
tinued to bear down.
The 22,.geologists, tenderfeet in the
eyes of the surveyors who arrived
two weeks ago, spent most of their
first few days in camp getting ac-
quainted with routine and accus-
tomed to the Wyoming climate. In
between adjustments, 'however, they
managed to get in several all day
trips including jaunts to Granite
Creek and Teton Pass, two of the
important geologic attractions in this
area.
The 12 engineering students who
began work on June 19, have com-
pleted a topographic survey of 280
acres and have begun work on their
second major project which will in-
clude the laying out of road curves,
profile levels, and other operations
incident to highway surveying.
The night spots of -Jackson, 20
miles away and a town of only 533
population, furnish an important por-
tion of weekend entertainment for
geologists and surveyors alike. Horse-
back riding on horses provided by a
nearby dude ranch and at elevations
of 8,000 feet or more at times is like-

to nearby Jenny Lake and the hot
springs of Granite Creek also come
in for their share of attention.
The camp is staffed by eight facul-
ty members and assistants this sum-
mer. They include: Prof. Harry Bou-
chard, director, Prof. George Bleek-
mnan, and Prof. Edward Young, all of
the engineering college and Prof. G.
M. Ehlers, in charge of the geology
courses, Prof. R. L. Belknapp, and
Prof. A. J. Eardley, all of the geology
department. Dale Harroun, Grad.,
and Walter Rieger, '40E, are assist-
ants.

George A. Kennedy'of Yale Universi-
ty and of the Summer Session facul-
ty in a Linguistic Institute lecture at
7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the amphi-
theatre of the Rackham Building.
Dr. Kennedy's'topic is "The Funda-
mentals of Chinese Word Order."
Linguistic scholars, notably the
celebrated Prof. Otto Jespersen of
Denmark, have already noted that
the loss of inflections in English has
increasingly altered its syntactic pat-
terns to the point where they strongly
resemble those in Chinese. It will be
Dr. Kennedy's purpose to show in
detail the various aspects of this simi-
larity.
Environment and special training
have united to give Professor Ken-
nedy a peculiar right to speak auth-
oritaively on this subject. Born in
China, he spent his early years there
and then came to the United States
for his university work. He then re-
turned to China, first teaching Eng-
lish in various schools in and near
Shanghai but later becoming an in-
structor in the Chinese language in
a high school for English and Ameri-
can students.
It was this last experience that
initiated Professor Kennedy's efforts
to produce a systematic approach to
the study and learning of the. Chinese
language. These efforts resulted in
working out the technique which he
now regularly uses in his instruction
at Yale University, where he directs
the courses in Chinese language and
literature, and which he has employed
in Ann Arbor for the past three sum-
mers.

Smith, Wife
Back In U.S.
UnderGuard
Says Anxious' To Return,
Wants To Straighten Up
Fund Misusing Charge
L S. U. President
Claims Innocence
WELLES ISLAND, N.Y., July 3.-
(M)-Dr. James Monroe Smith, form-
er President of Louisiana State Uni-
versity, and his wife reentered the
United States tonight under guard
of Louisiana officers returning Smith
to Baton Rouge on embezzlement
charges.
"We're anxious to get back as fast
as we can," said Murphy Roden, As-
sistant Chief of Louisiana State Po-
lice, "and they are just as anxious as
we are."
In an interview earlier at Brock-
ville, Ont., where he surrendered
Saturday night, Smith said, "I am
going back to straighted up this af-
fair-or to assist in straightening up
the affairs."
Before leaving the hotel rooms
where he and his wife had been un-
der guard, Smith declared he was
"innocent of any wrong-doing," and
that he would "fightt" an indictment
charging him with, misusing $100,-
000 of the University's funns.
Before their departure f r o m
Brockville, accomplished as secretly
as possible, Dr. Smith refused for
two and a half hours to sign an ex-
tradition waiver unless he was as-
sured his wife, greatly distraught by
the charges against him, would not
be separated from him.
The Louisiana officers had want-
ed to send Smith back in a Louisiana
State University plane in which they
had flown to Brockville, andsend
,back Mrs. Smith, charged with "har
boring" and '"assisting' her husband,
by train.
Finally, Dr. and Mrs. Smith signed
waivers, and botW wvere driven away
in their own sedan, which Smith
bought before entering CanadIa last
week.
Excursionists
Plan Inspection
Of Ford Plant
Group Will Observe Mass
Production Methods On
ModernAssembly Line
Third of the Summer Session Ex-
cursions, the trip to the Ford plant
on the River Rouge in Dearborn, will
get under way at 12:45 p.m. tomor-
row.
The group will assemble in front
of Angell Hall and proceed from
there by bus to the plant. Students
wishing to drive their own cars and
follow the busses are welcome to do
so. The excursion will end in Ann
Arbor at about 5:30 p.m.
At the Ford plant, an inspection
tour will be made of the motor as-
sembly plant, the final assembly
line, the open hearth furnaces and
the rolling mill.
The trip will offer an opportunity
for the stu of the Ford industrial
technique: the extreme specialization
of labor, the continuous conveyor belt
system, efficiency in the standardized
processing of materials and large
scale production.
In the assembly of the auttomobile,

the group will watch workers add to
the skeleton on the conveyor axles,
wheels, motor, gasoline tank, steer-
ing gear, body and other parts as
the car-to-be passes by, to be driven
off at the end of the line, 45 minutes
after its "birth."

Free City's Bank Creates
'Blocked Gulden' Similar
To Germany's Marks
Officials Take Nazi
Oath, Poland Says
FREE CITY OF DANZIG, July 3.
-(/P)-The Bank of Danzig announced
today that henceforth it would pay
interest and amortization charges on
foreign loans to the Free City only
in blocked gulden-like Germany's
dealings with blocked marks.
This move and a report in Polish
quarters that Danzig customs offi-
cials were taking a new oath of office
pledging loyalty to "the national
socialist leadership of the state" were
the day's principal developments in
the Free City.
Foreign observers , expressed the
opinion that the Bank of Danzig was
influenced somewhat in its decision
on loan payments by the Nazi cam-
paign to unite the Free City poli-
tically with Germany.
The decision affected largely.
American; British and Netherlands
investors.
The Bank announced that the
loans affected by the decision totaled
120,000,000 gold gulden-something
over $30,000,000.
The blocked guiden in which loan
payments will be made may not be
converted into foreign currency or
taken out of the Free State. Investors
will receive certificates on Danzig
devisen banks for the amount due
to them.
American investors hold the 1927
Danzig Harbor Board Loan. (Wall
Street circles estimated there prob-
ably were not more than about $3,-
500,000, face value, of these bonds
outstanding in the United States.)
Bank officials insisted there was
no discrimination against foreign
lenders, pointing out that interest
payments to domestic investors had
been subject to limitations since last
April.
In a long explanation of the cir-
cumstances, the Bank said the chief
reason for the newest limitation was
economic reverses suffered by Danzig
since the new Polish harbor of Gdynia
started serious competition. Gdynia
lies at the head of the Polish .Cor-
ridor, near Danzig.
Camp Filibert Roth
Summer Session
OpensWith Shouts
(Special to The Daily)
CAMP FILIBERT ROTH, July 3.-
Gleeful shouts resounded through
the wilderness of Ottowa National
Forest in the Upper Peninsula as 59
forestry students, four staffuprofes-
sors, three assistants, two cooks and
a handy man opened the fifth sum-
mer session at the new location of
Camp Filibert Roth.
For ten weeks the boys will make
maps, cruise timber, scale logs and
learn about forest fire in addition
to the day by day exposure to potato
peeling, dishwashing, wood chopping
and pumping water at the Universi-
ty's "forestry laboratory."
Diversion for both staff and stu-
dents at the camp will be provided
by the new ball field, but thus far
"typically Ann Arbor weather" trans-
ferred to the camp has inundated the
spot sufficiently to suggest swim-
ming as a plausible alternative. Wild
life majors in the group find much
to attract them in the abundance of
bird, deer, bear and other animal
life in the vicinity, in addition to the
insect life, which has been attracted
by the whole camp.

'Wyoming Summer'
Baffles Sureyors
(speciai to The Daily)
CAMP DAVIS, Jackson, Wyo., July
3.-Students here are just a little
leery of Wyoming weather.
They have good reason to be
though, for natives say that snow
falls and a temperature below freez-
ing is recorded in every month of the
year. Surveying students especially
believe this since the snowstorm they,
ran into the first day of camp. Cold
weather held on during the entire
first week and chilly nights still pre-
dominate.
In fact, Jackson residents say that
the traditional answer to the query
about one's activities the past sum-
mer is, "Oh I went fishing-both
days."
Hitler Returns
To Welcome
Bulrarian P.M.
Fuehrer And Ribbentrop
Will Seek To Reassure
VisitingKiosseivanoff
BERLIN, July 3.-(RP)-Nazidom
went out of its way tonight to re-
assure the world that Chancellor 1
Hitler had no intention of forcing
the issue with Poland as the Fuehrer
suddenly returned to the capital to
cultivate Germany's influence in the
Balkans.
Officials and the p'ess made sport
over those who predicted a Nazi
putsch in Danzig yesterday. Hitler
and foreign minister Joachim Von
Ribbentrop prepared to welcome
Prime Minister George Kiosseivan-
off of Bulgaria with assurances that
they are in full sympathy with Bul-l
garia's desires for revision of thea
Treaty of Neuilly.
(Under the Treaty, signed in No-
vember, 1919, Bulgaria ceded small
portions of territory on her western
frontier to Jugoslavia, and gave upJ
larger sections to Rumania and
Greece).
Hitler's unexpected return-the
first since he went to his Berchttes-j
gaden summer home June 7-indi-
cated the importance which Reich
leaders attached to receiving the Bul-1
garian Premier.
One Nazi said the visit was "an in-
dication that more and more it is
being recognized that political hopes
-not to mention economic ones-can
only be realized through collabora-
tion with Germany."

mer Session excursion, to be con-
ducted Friday to Monday, 'July 14 to
17, Niagara Falls and vicinity.
In an untechnical manner, Profes-
sor Scott will tell of the geological

Danzig Nazis Deny Crisis'
Hinted By British; Restrict
'Payment Of Foreign Debts

Creation Of 'Heimwher'
From Fuehrer's Former
Black - Shirts Admitted
Influx Of German
'Tourists' Reported
FREE CITY OF DANZIG, July 3.
-(_)-Danzig Nazis, vigorously pro-
testing that "the western democracies
are trying to make an artificial
crisis," tonight challenged "British
propagandists" to prove that a Ger-
man putsch had been planned for
last weekend.
"Where is this sudden German or
Nazi surprise action about which the
world was being warned by Lon-
don?" a high official of the Danzig
Senate asked.
"'We are making modest prepara-
tions against a possible surprise from
the Polish border," he continued,
"but the most casual obesrvation in
this quiet city wilL, show that the
Germans of Danzig are manifesting
the utmost patience."
Organization of a "Heimwher"
comprised of men volunteering for
emergenc yser icee was acknowl-
edged.
It also was admitted that men of
this new kervice were veterans of
the black-uniformed S.5. or of mili-
tary serviec in Germany, but offi-
cials contended all were Danzig citi-
zens.
It was said about 400 of them were
recalled from Germany within the
past few weeks.
During the day the Nazi-controlled
Danzig Senate decreed that workers
may be mobilized for labor service
vital to the state" In the event of
an emergency growing out of the
Polish-German tension over Danzig.
The workers would be recruited for
industries held to be essential for the
welfare of the community.
Nazi officials were displeased by
the declaration of British Prime Min-
ister Neville Chamberlain today that
military preparations were being tak-
en in the Free City. They charged
that Chamberlain was inaccurately
informed.
British And French
Plot To Halt Thrust
LONDON, July 3.--QP)-Great Bri-
tain, France and Poland kept the
wires busy today seeking to deter-
mine at just what point and exactly
how to resist Nazi activity in Danzig.
As the problem was being debated
Prime Minister Chamberlain told the
House' of Commons he had "reliable
reports" which "indicate that in-
tensive measures of a military char-
acter are being carried out in the
Free City."
"A large and increasing number of
German nationals," he said, "have
recently arrived in the Free City, os-
tensibly as 'tourists,' and a local de-
fense corps is being formed under the
name of 'Heimwehr.'
"The government is maintaining
contact with the Polish and French,,
governments regarding developments
in Danzig."
Britain, France and Poland already
have agreed they would resist any
change in the status of Danzig either
from within or without, informed
quarters said, and the question now
has become one of determining when
and how resistance would be applied.

Guff ey Speaks
For Roosevelt
Advocates Third Term
In Radio Address
WASHINGTON, July 3.-(1P)-Sen-
ator Guffey (Dem., Pa.), classifying
anti-Administration elements as "to-
ries and political ingrates," called to-
night for reelection of President
Roosevelt in 1940 with "no ifs, ands
or buts, no alibis and no double-
crossing."
In a speech prepared for the radio,
Guffey represented himself as a
"practical politician" who expected
td seek reelection to the Senate next
year on his record as "100 per cent
pro-Roosevelt New Deal Democrat."
He said he favred a third term
for these reasons:
"Because I am a Democrat.
"Because I am a practical politi-
cian.
"Because I am a liberal, and
"Because I am an American."
"As a matter of cold political fact,"
Guffey told his audience, "if Frank-
lin Delano Roosevelt is elected to the
presidency again it will be his first
real term of office. When you elect-
ed Roosevelt in 1932, his first term
was canceled, vetoed by the Supreme
Court.
"When you reelected Roosevelt in
1936, his second term was stolen by
tories and political ingrates.
"If the tory politicians and the big
business magnates succeed in bam-

Annual Spring Conferences Are
Forerunners Of Summer Parley

Center Holds

By JOHN EDMONDS
Modelled after'the annual Spring
Parley of the University, the first
Summer Parley will convene Thurs-
day and Friday in the Union.
Beginning in 1931, the Parleys have
fostered informal exchange of stu-
dent-faculty views on contemporary
issues and have probed inter-rela-
tionships of subjects ordinarily de-
tached from each other. According
to Dr. Edward W. Blakeman, faculty
sponsor, the Parleys always raise
more questions than they answer,
which is all to the good, he main-
tains.
The first Parley had no scheduled
speeches and no specified topics. A

"Our University, Milestone or Mill-
stone."
Beginning with the fourth Parley,
in 1934, broad social questions were
usually included in the topics dis-
cussed. In that year, under the gen-
eral theme of "What Can We Be-
lieve?" conferences were held on War
and the Student, Sex and the Family,
Capitalism and Social Change, and
Religion and the Church. The 1935
Parley, on "Values in Social Con-
flict" included panel discussions on
war, academic freedom, race discrim-
ination, and political philosophy.
Equally specific were the topics con-
sidered in the 1937 conference, "A
Program for Our Times."
