25 miles from Ann Arbor, one of the
United States' most effective projects
in human engineering, the University
of Michigan Fresh Air Camp, is.cele-
brating its 19th anniversary.
From crowded metropolitan dis-
tricts where the streets served them
as a playground, the latest contin-
gent of the more than 6,500 boys who
have attended the camp since it was
founded, are being taught a lesson in
social living and democracy while
they enjoy the benefits of outdoor
exercise and heaping platefuls of
good food.
No Regimentation
Striking is the lack of regimented

forth at specified intervals. Instead
they enthusiastically take part in a
program especially planned for them.
From six to eight campers live with
two counsellors in each of the many
cabins. There are only a few specific
regulations which they must observe
-attendance at flag-raising before
breakfast, participation in the camp
clean-up in the morning and "lights
out" when taps is sounded from the
hill which rises above the shores of
Patterson Lake.
Specially Prepared Program
At other times the boys have a
program specially prepared for them.
Daily they meet with their counsel-
lor to discuss what they'll do next-
whether it will be an overnight hike
to Lime Lake or one of the other lakes
nearby, a cook-out in the woods
or a trip to Ann Arbor, Dearborn,
Lansing or sme ther city in which
education and adventure can be com-
Then, during the main part of the
morning and afternoon, they take
part in individual projects. Some go
to the art room where an amazingly
good artist teaches them the essen-
tials of painting and sculpting.
Others visit thenature study tent,
watch the wire cages in which lazy
snakes lounge while the frightened
mice and frogs on which they feed
stand tense beside them. Later, per-
haps, they go into the woods and
do nature study work. Yesterday, for

Aim Of Institute
Is To Modernize
Talk By Professor Winter
Tomorrow Will Open
Series OfMeetings
To modernize the teaching of Lat-
in in Michigan high schools, the Lat-
in department of the University will
open its second Institute for the
Teachers of Latin at 11:10 a.m. to-
morrow when Prof. J. G. Winter,
director, lectures in Room 2003 An-
gell Hall on "North Africa Under
the Romans."
Sponsored with the dual purpose
of aiding teachers whose training
has not included courses in the meth-
ods and practices of Latin teaching
and teachers of long experience who
wish to become acquainted with re-
cently developed procedures in Latin
instruction, the Institute will remain
in session from tomorrow through
Illustrated Lecture Offered
In addition to papers on the prob-
lems of teaching and recent develop-
ments in organization and adminis-
tration of courses, there will be il-
lustrated lectures on archaeological
subjects designed to furnish informa-
tion on aspects of Greek and Italian
Daily round-table discussions and
conferences will facilitate considera-
tion of specific questions proposed by
members of the Institute. Written
statements of topics on which dis-
cussion is desired may be left at the
registration desk.
Dunham To Lecture
Tomorrow's program begins with
registration at 10 a.m. in Room 2011
Angell Hall. Professor Winter will
then deliver his lecture to complete
the morning session.
Prof. Fred A. Dunham of the Lat-
in department will open the after-
noon activities with a lecture on "The
Latin Curriculum of The University
High School" at 3 p.m. in Room 2003

dents and faculty of the Depart-
ments of La'tin and Greek will be

Then, for others, there are pro-
grams of athletics ranging from arch-
ery to swimming instruction; a com-
plete shop for wood and metal work;
facilities for boating-including one
monster "ship" powered by a paddle
wheel which is used for overnight
hikes--; and all the other recreation-
al opportunities which a trained soci-
ologist thinks might bring happiness
to an underprivileged youngster.
Counsellors A Uniue Group
Counsellors at the camp are a unique
group for almost all are students of
human adjustment. From all over the
nation they have come-their num-
ber even includes a Hawaiian and
two German refugees-to gain the
practical experience of living with the
youths they study and influence. A
special cabin is provided for classes
in guidance, adjustment, the place
of the camp and other problems.
Complete records are kept on the cam-
pers and expert advice is available
from University experts 'when an
especially difficult individual prob-
lem arises.
The youths who benefit from this
competent leadership are an intense-
ly interesting crew. Ranging from 8
to 17 years in age, they are of all
nationalities. The only restriction is
that the camper have an I.Q. not low-
er than 80. Each boys is expected
to contribute something toward the
cost of his vacation with the social
agency also contributing.
Tag Day Profitable
The Summer Tag Day, which will
be held Wednesday, is another im-
portant source of revenue to the camp
along with private donations. More
than $190,000 has been donated since
the camp began its task of rehabili-
tating youth but as it has grown its
needs have increased proportionately
so that donations play an important
part in the contemporary life of the
Decentralization is the keynote of
the camp's plan. Older boys known as
"Pioneers" live in special cabins hun-
dreds of yards from the main camp.
They have a progam entirely separ-
ate from that of the younger cam-
pers, spending much of their time in
camp improvement. In the future,
according to camp officials, this trend
in decentralization will be continued
with an increased ratio of counsellors
to campers.
Director George Alder, a well-
known camping authority, sums up
the Fresh Air Camp in these words:
The Democratic Way.
"The democratic way of life is more
fully realized in a creative camping
environment. Here youth as well as
adults may learn the meaning of 'the
good life.' A premium is placed on
friendship and cooperative activity.
"Boys and their counsellors learn to
do better those desirable things they
will do in life anyway. Higher activi-
ties are stimulated and realized. New
interests are created and real prob-
lems of everyday living are met and

For TheComing Week
Torrid Days Bring
47 Deaths In Nation
(By Associated Press)
Rain and a severe electrical storm
early yesterday failed to break com-
pletely a heat wave which has cost at
least four deaths in Michigan.
In Detroit, where the temperature
reached a new year's high of 92 de-
grees Friday, the thermometer
climbed back to 87 in midafternoon
Saturday, but a stiff breeze afforded'
a measure of relief.
The storm caused thousands of dol-
lars in damage as it swept over lower
Michigan, leaving in its wake un-
roofed houses, fallen trees, and power
transformers blasted by lightning.
A wave of midsummer heat baked
much of the Nation from Maine to
Texas sending temperatures to record
highs in some states and causing at
least 47 deaths.
Only in scattered sections of the
heat zone were there forecasts prom-
ising a respite today. Warmer weather
was predicted for most of the Middle
Heat deaths by states follow:
Missouri, Iowa, Ohio and Illinois,,
5 each; Michigan, Arkansas, 4; New
York and Wisconsin, 3 each; Penn-
sylvania, Minnesota, Indiana and
Massachusetts, 2 each; Rhode Island,
Tennessee, Louisiana, Kansas and
Oklahoma, 1 each.

ings of the Linguistic Institute dur-
ing the coming week.
Prof. William F. Edgerton, noted
Egyptologist of the University of Chi-
cago, who is a member of the Insti-
tute faculty, is to deliver a public lec-
ture in the amphitheatre of the
Rackham building at 7:30 p.m. Wed-
nesday. He will discuss "Some As-
pects of Word Order in Egyptian."
For the regular Thursday noon
luncheon conference, which as usual
will meet at the Michigan Union, Mr.
Joseph K. Yamagiwa of the Univer-
sity faculty will present a discussion
of what he terms "Compound Post-
positions in Modern Japanese." The
"postpositions" will be compared to
the familiar English prepositions.
The return of Prof. -Leonardy
Bloomfield of the University of Chi-
cago to deliver the second of his
series of lectures on the Algonkian
languages Will climax the Institute's
activities for the week. Dr. Bloom-
field, who opened the series a week
ago with a comparative presentation
of the speech-sounds of the major
Algonkian tongues, will continue this
week with a study of "Algonkian In-
flections," with the purpose of show-
ing how their comparative analysis
can lead to a reconstruction of the
inflectional patterns of the hypo-
thetical parent language. His lec-
ture will occur at 7:30 p.m., Friday, in
the Rackham amphitheatre.

100,000 Employees
DETROIT, July 8.-(AP)-Union of-
ficials announced tonight plans to
extend a strike in General Motors
Corporation tool and die departments
which gave indications of developing
into a prolonged struggle.
Walter P. Reuther, director of the
G.M. department of the CIO United
Automobile Workers, said that unless
the Corporation) enters into negotia-
tions "in good faith" on Union de-
mands, the walkout which already
has affected nine plants in Detroit
and Pontiac, will spread next week to
other G.M. units in Detroit, Saginaw
and Cleveland.
The corporation termed some of
the Union demands "unreasonable."
6,000 Are Idle
Approximately 6,000 skilled work-
ers are idle because of the strike,
which is aimed at crippling General
Motors' preparation for production of
its 1940-model automobiles
Prolonging of the dispute could
throw 100,000 G.M. employes out f
wprk. ,Corporation officials said 5,"-
600 production workers at the Chev-
rolet Gear & Axle plant here prob-
ably would be laid off Mondry or
Tuesday because tools have bccome
dull since tool cutters and grinders
joined the walkout.
The UAW-CIO has presented de-
mands asking wage increases, a union
label, an apprentice setup, minimuni
[hiring rate and overtime pay for tool
and die workers, engineers and main-
enance men.
Knudson Raises Question
William S. Knudsen, President of
General Motors, said that wage and
seniority demands amounted to re-
quests to change the G.M.-UAW con-
tract. He also raised the question of
AFL or CIO authority in the con-
R. J. Thomas, president of the
UAW-CIO, said "there are no sec-
tions in the old agreement dealing
with the highly specialized problems
of the (striking) workers Therefore
our new demands do not reopen the
old contract."
A Wayne County Court has set
September 12 for the trial of suits
to determine whether the UAW-CIO
or the AFL-affiliated UAW hea ied
by Homer Martin is rightful owner
of the assets held by the Union prior
to its split into two sections last win-
