Six Well Trained Students

Of Good And Bad Attire.
How to appear in that all-impor-

Purdom at 7:15 p.m. today in the

To Visit Ford's
Antique Town
Greenfield Village Is Goal
Of Tour; 5 P.M. Today
Is Reservation Deadline
Seventh Summer Session excursion
of the season will take place from 1
p.m. to 5:45 p.m. tomorrow, and will
be a trip to Henry Ford's Greenfield'
Village at Dearborn.
Reservations for the tour must be
made by 5 p.m. today in the Summer
Session Office, Room 1213, Angell
Hall. Expenses will consist of round
trip bus fare, $1, and entrance fee to
the village and museum, 25 cents.
Greenfield Village is a specially
constructed town of nearly a century
ago. Collected from near and far and
reconstructed in this quaint village
are the old.town church, the colonial
style town hall, the red-brick school
house, the tavern, general store, post-
office, toll gate station, tin type gal-
lery, blacksmith's and cobbler's shops
and other typical establishments.
The original Menlo Park Labora-
tory and factory of Thomas A. Edi-
son are also to be seen in a special
section of the village.
In addition there 3s open to the
public a large indoor museum of
early America and an ,unparalleled
collection on transportation.
Students wishing to follow the

what to avoid and to emphasize in
the way of grooming and apparel.
With the six students appearing
on the platform in various "right"
and "wrong" states of attire, the
audience- will be able to grasp signi-
ficant points more effectively than
through sheer word appeal, Dr. Pur-
dom believes. Dr. Purdom will com-
ment on the demonstrators and sum
up the important points.
Frayed collars, poor "make-up",
sloppy socks, unbecoming coiffures,
poor posture, loud ties and scores of
seemingly insignificant errors of
grooming have cost many well-quali-
fied students the jobs they could
otherwise have had, Dr. Purdom said.
Employers, meeting a job applicant
for the first time, are apt to form
wrong impressions from poor appear-
ance which belies the applicant's
real ability, he declared.
The rolls of the Bureau of Appoint-
ments are full of such cases.
Other factors which play an im-
portant part in "getting the job you
want" are "attitude" and "who do
you know?", Dr. Purdom pointed
He will discuss these points on
Tuesday, July 25 and Tuesday, Aug. 1.

Teacher education in this country
today stands at the crossroads, Dr.
William S. Gray of the University ofr
Chicago yesterday informed an au-
dience of the Educational Conference
being held this week under the aus-
pices of the School of Education.
One route follows traditional prac-
tices, he said, while the second, now
being developed, has as its aim tos
provide types of training for teachers
which will enable them to assume in-t
telligently the responsibilities thatt
society imposes on them today. Edu-s
cational leaders of Michigan, he de-f
clared, have adopted this second plan
and are contributing significantly to
the solution of many current prob-
Emphasizing the fact that Ger-
many, Italy and Russia have defined
clearly the nature of the product
which they want their schools to turnl
out and model their teacher trainingi
agencies accordingly, Dr. Grayf
claimed that if democracy is to be9
preserved and if the democratic wayc
of life is to be improved, schools and
teacher training agencies in America
must contribute more actively iithe
future than in the past to these ends.
At the opening session of the Con-
ference yesterday morning, Dr. Gray
spoke on teaching reading in the
schools. Citing evidence, he showed:
that schools providing a broad pro-
gram of reading guidance which
recognizes the varied needs of the
reader in contemporary life usually
hsecure superior results. On the other
hand, he pointed out that schools

Spends Week In Northern
Michigan; Comments On
Program For Teachers
Pleased by the work going on in
conjunction with the University's
curricula in the out-state colleges
and stations, Dr. Louis A. Hopkins,
director of- the Summer Session,
turned his attention to his duties in
Ann Arbor yesterday after a week's
visit to the various stations in the
northern part of the state.
"The program in the four state
teachers colleges is excellent," Dr.
Hopkins declared. "This is a move-
ment that is being watched by edu-
cational institutions all over the
country, and it is indeed a splendid
example that an umber of independ-
ent tax-supported units can get to-
gether and work together for a defin-
ite objective in such a wonderful
spirit of cooperation.
"The work in the Biological Sta-
tion and the Forestry Station is, as
usual, coming along in excellent
shape. Besides the busy program of
field study going on at the biological'
camp, there is a program in land
utilization being carried on there
and a state project in the study of
certain parasites.
Dr. Hopkins was also enthusiastic
about his visit to the Osburn Pre-
serve on Sugar Island in the St.
Mary's River. Here he lunched with
former-Governor Chase Osburn, "an
experience," he said, "never to be
forgotten." Osburn, former regent
of the University, has donated 4,000
Alumni Write
To Put. Janke
On Star-Squad
Letters from alumni groups
throughout the country brought as-
surance of whole-hearted support for
the campaign to place Fred Janke,
Michigan football ctain of last sea-
son, on the All-Star "quad which will
meet the New York Giant team at
Chicago on Aug. 30.
In one of the letters, captain salut-
ed captain, as Archie Kodros, elect-
ed to succeed Janke as head Michi-
gan gridder next fall, wrote that he
was "happy to see that Fred is at last
to receive the honor due a great lead-
er and outstanding football player."
Other letters carried the same mes-
sage, though each writer had his own
way of expressing it. One, an alum-
nus from Michigan, wrote as follows:
"Hells Bells! I see you fellows have
finally learned that you have one of
the ablest football players ever to
trod the chalk stripes for the Univer-
sity of Michigan. Congratulations,
and may your campaign prove suc-
Buried deep in the pile of mail from
Janke supporters was a gray en-
velope with the name of Camp Al-
Gon-Quian engraved in an upper
corner. It was from the big, 208
pound tackle, one of the camp coun-
selors, and was flooded with state-
ments of gratitude and enthusiasm.
Showing his appreciation, he said,
"The very fact that it is evident that
so many people have confidence in
me, makes the campaign a success
without waiting to see the result."
Fred has been gaining rapidly in
the tabulations and at press time
rated number 10 in the nation wide
voting to fill the tackle positions on
the All-Star squad.

Dr. Hopkins Returns From Visit
To Colleges, University Stations


acres near his summer residence on
Sugar Island to the University, and
here experiments and obsrvations in
forestry are being carried out.
Starting a week from yesteday, Dr.
Hopkins left with Dean Clarence S.
Yoakum of the graduate school and
Dean Samuel T. Dana of the forestry
school. At Mt. Pleasant in the morn-j
ing they met President Anspaugh of
Central State Teachers College and
the faculty who are participating in
the University curriculum there.
From here they traveled to the
Chittenden Nursery in the Manistee
National Forest. Conducted by the
Department of Agriculture, this is
the largest tree-producing nursery in
the United States, producing 32,000,-
000 trees a year. An evening's boat
trip took the party across Lake Michi-t
gan to Menominee.-
At Iron Mountain the next morn-1
ing, Dean Yoakum addressed a ses-
sion of the Rotary Club, and the
party then proceeded to the Forestryt
Station on Golden Lake, about 15
miles west of Iron Mountain. Herer
Dean Dana and Dr. Hopkins dis-e
cussed administrative matters withr
Prof. Robert Craig and met M. J.
Fox, a benefactor of the camp. Dr.
Hopkins was worried by a bear that
has been visiting the camp every.
night, but said that he was not going%
to be perturbed if no one 'at theA
camp seemed to be bothered.-
Delighted with the scenery of thei
Porcupine Mountains, to the north
and west of Golden Lake, Dr. Hop-
kins, Dean Dana and Dean Yoakumj
were not so pleased with the food
accommodations. Here in the high-
est point in Michigan, about 2,000
feet, the three had a beautiful view.,
over Lake Superior on one side and
over the Lake of the Clouds on the
other. The only food they got, how-
ever, was a strawberry ice cream coet
and a chocolate bar.
At Houghton they visited some of

Practically All Protestants
Are Now Back On Job
AccordingTo Officials
Roll Cut Appears
As Next Problem
Except in a few scattered communi-
ties, notably in Minnesota and Penn-
sylvania, the WPA strike appeared
last night to be at an end.
Works projects off icials in half a
dozen affected states reported vir-
tually all the protestants against the
new wage regulations back on the job,
except for those who had found other
work, or had been dismissed for be-
ing absent five consecutive days.
'Forget The Strike'
Lieut. Col. Brehon Somervell, New
York 'city WPA administrator, ex-
pressed the general attitude of most
state WPA heads by saying, "forget
the strike. I've forgotten it. We have
a real problem on our hands now."
The problem he referred to is that
of making a 300,000 cut in the rolls by
Aug. 1. About 75,000 are to be dropped
in New York city Sept. 1 under this
cut. and under the new act's provi-
sion for a 30-day furlough for those
who have been on the rolls 18 con-
secutive months.
Urge Wage Restoration
In Washington, American Federa-
tion of Labor officials called on Con-
gressional leaders to urge restora-
tion of the prevailing wage on WPA
projects, but received no promises
and most Congress members agreed
that there was virtually no chance
that the new relief 'act would be
changed at this session.
William Green, AFL President, said
the union officials were "neither en-
couraged nor discouraged" in their
talks with Capitol Hill leaders.
He related, however, that Speaker
Bankhead and Majority Leader Ray-
burn (Dem., Tex.) suggested that the
group call on members of the House
Appropriations Committee, and that
from previous conversations with
Chairman Taylor (Dem., Col.) of this
committee and Rep. Woodrum (Dem.,
Va.), chairman of a subcommittee
which handled the WPA bill, "we got
the idea there was no chance."

Deleware Indian Here To Help
Record Tribe's Fading Language

Outstanding success of the New
York stage last year, the famous
scenery-less "Our Town" by Thorn-
ton Wilder, will open tomorrow for
a four-day run.
The play opened in New York in
February, 1938. There, as during the
past year on tour, the drama played
to capacity houses.
The play was written to be played
without scenery but with only occa-
sional props to strike a universal
note. It tells the life of the Webb
and the Gibbs families in a small
New Hampshire town. The chief
character, however, is the stage man-
ager of the production, who also acts
as the village philosopher. Whit-
ford Kane, guest director and actor,
will play this role in the Ann Arbor,
"Our Town" was awarded the
Pulitzer Prize for the best play of
1938. Wilder also won the Pulitzer,
prize for the best American novel
with his "Bridge of San Luis Rey."
The Players have a special interest
in the play for Martha Scott, a
Michigan graduate and a former
member of the Players and of the
winter troupe, Play Production, was
a success in the lead of the original
New York production. Mary Pray,
well known here for several years
with the Summer Players, will take
this part in the production here.
Dr. Onderdonk

Willie Long Bone, acting head of
that historic Indian tribe, the Dela-
wares, has become an enthusiastic
admirer of Ann Arbor. Some of his1
admiration is for the wealth of trees,
but most of it is owing to the fact that,
never before, in all his 71 summers
spent on the sun-scorched plains of
Kansas and Oklahoma, has he en-
joyed such a cool summer as he has
found in Michigan.
Short, heavy-set, usually clad in'
blue-gray overalls and sometimesl
wearing a big straw hat, Mr. Long
Bone has been observed with curiosity
by many students on the campus, who
have wondered who he is and what
he does in Angell Hall. Here's the
Though neither a student nor a
teacher, he is giving invaluable aid
to the cause of lirnguistic science this
summer, for he is supplying to re'-
search workers in language the ma-
terials for the first scientific analysis
of' the Delaware language. Long
Bone came to Ann Arbor with Prof.
Charles Voegelin of the department of
anthropology of De Pauw University,
who is one of three Linguistic Insti-
tute faculty members conducting
work in the recording and analysis
of a living language.

How important his work is may be
judged from the fact that in Okla-
homa only about 40 or 50 Delawares
of the oldest generation can speak
the language of their fathers. Unless
science records this speech now, the
language of a great and important
Indian tribe will have been lost. True,
the younger Delawares understand
the language, but they, like Long
Bone's children, can speak only a
simplified version of it interspersed
with many English words, and they
prefer to speak English entirely.
Though Long. Bone's wife knows
only Delaware, Long Bone himself
early learned English in the govern-
ment schools. When he expressed his
admiration for Ann Arbor's climate,
he did not, as some cartoonists would
have you believe, say, "Ugh, heap
swell weather here." As a matter of
fact, he talked about it exactly as
any other summer visitor to the Uni-
versity would.
A strong believer in education,
Long Bone is proud of his schooling,
proud of the married duaghter who
is a high school graduate, proud of
the son, Ray, who graduated from
Drake University in Des Moines but
whose ambitious plans ended with
death from the pneumonia that fol-
lowed his being gassed in the trenches

Chinese In War Zone Found'
Badly In Need Of Medical Aid

Back home again after a two and
one-half day jaunt to the scenic
wonders of Niagara Falls, partici-
pants in the sixth Summer Session
excursion returned yesterday to their
tudies with renewed vigour.
Calm Lake Erie waters rendered
the group a peaceful night and .a re-
freshinig sleep after a Sunday of
Falls sightseeing. The party arrived
in Ann Arbor at 10:30 a.m. yester-
day after a bus ride from the De-
troit waterfront.
Sunday the excursionists travelled
to Goat Island between the Ameri-
can and Canadian Falls and descend-
ed to the Cave of the Winds. There
they donned woolens and oilcloth
and mounted the boardwalk to the
Hurricane Deck, on the edge of the
American Falls, where they were
deluged by spray and buffeted by
Falls-made winds.
Later they inspected the hydro-
electric power house of the Niagara
Falls Power Company, where 450,-
000 horse-power is generated.
Excursionists figured that they
were given the most inexpensive taxi
service in the United States. They
were conducted by cab from their
hotel to Goat Island, to the hydro-
electric plant and returned to their
hotel for 15 cents apiece.
