Cooperative Agencies
Boys at the Fresh Air Camp are
recommended to camp officials by
welfare agencies of Ann Arbor, De-
troit, Jackson, Wyandotte, Ham-
tranick, and other cities in South-
eastern ,Michigan.,
They are counselled through an
extensive program of out-of-doors
activities by 35 counselors, most of
whom are school teachers and en-
rolled in the University in the sociol-
ogy and education departments.
These men attempt to diagnose the
boys' irregular actions at home by
carefully observing their day-to-day
activities at the camp, watching for
significant behavior. Periodic clinics
are held by the counselors and group
leaders to study such observations
and make recommendations to the
home welfare group.
Financially Dependents 1
The camp is financially dependentI
on individual contributions and Tag1
Days in Ann Arbor such that is being
held today. Since it was established1
in 1922, more than $190,000 have
been raised, providing vacations for
8,500 boys.

Whicher Tells,
Of Naturalism
In U.S. Letters
Amherst Professor Cites
Nationalistic Tendencies
In WritingsOf Nature

Speaking for the 'GraduateStudy
Program in American Culture and
Institutions, Prof. George F. Whi-
cher of Amherst College last night
presented the problem of how far
American writers were able to ac-
cept and utilize the return to na-
ture aspect of the romantic move-
ment abroad.
In the early period, he observed,
the Puritans seemed to pay little
attention to the natural wonders
around them. This he explained by
the necessity of conserving paper,
an imported commodity at that time
and not something to be used for
the expression of personal joys and
pleasures. The Puritan theory of
nature, however, held elements that
might easily be taken over into ro-
mantic pantheism, Professor Whi-
cher asserted.
American letters as late as 1810

Not content with making history by staying up when the "Athenia"

torpedoed Sept. 4 off Northern Ireland, pedaled away from the Publica-

Aviators Continue
Bombing Germany
(By the Associated Press)
Defiance by Birtain, which sent her
night-flying raiders ranging far over
Germany early today, led informed
Nazi sources and the controlled Ger-
man press to the "resigned" conclu-
sion that England mustb e crushed.
The Germans seized upon Prime
Minister Churchill's Sunday declar-
ation of war to victory or to ruin as
the factor forcing their decision to
aim a mighty blow at the British.
The German opinion contrasted
somewhat with that of Italy, the
other end of the axis, which forecast
that Britain would be given a last
chance to fall in line with the Rome-
Berlin plan for "renovating" Eur-
One authoritative German com-
mentary even said the bases from
Norway down the Atlantic coast al-
ready had been set up for the on-
slaught against England.
British air raids on Germany last
night and early today were not an-
nounced by either side, but at least
a dozen German and German-held
radio stations went suddenly silent,
as they do when warplanes approach.
Only a few hours after the Air
Ministry reported punishing raids on
Germany points, including 22 Ger-
man airdromes in 48 hours, radio
stations at Bremen, Cologne, Mun-
ich, Leipzig, Berlin, Breslau, Frank-
furt, Saarbrucken, Vienna, Brussels,
Hilversum (Netherlands) and Stras-
bourg (France) went silent.
Nazi radio stations usually shut
down when enemy planes are near
to keep from acting as guides.
Thepreported aacks on the Ger-
man airdromes were'a stern "pre-
invasion" answer to hints from Rome
that Britain soon would face a sub-
mit-or-else ultimatum from the Axis
Virginio Gayda, Premier Musso-
lini's editorial mouthpiece, indicated
in Rome that the British Empire
might soon have to make up its
mind to have peace on Axis terms
or be crushed by the military ma-
chines which Gaydg said were near-
ly ready to assault the British in
their homeland.
Japan is believed ready to take
strong measures if Britain definitely
refuses to close the road. Alarmed
China protested that the new British
stand was a "most unfriendly act."

German Economic Expert
Says Hitler's Dynamism
Menaces Pan-America
Heightening of German economic
and political penetration into South
America, and continuation of her
repressive pre-war economic policies
will inevitably result if Germany
emerges victorious from the present
war, Dr. Melchior Palyi, noted Ger-
man economist, told an audience of
500 yesterday in the third lecture
of the American Policy series.
The consequences of victory for
Hitler will allow him no recourse,
Dr. Palyi said, but to continue his
search for the means to self-suffi-
ciency. The psychological attitude
of the Germans who believe implicit-
ly in force as an instrument both to
military and economic successes will
force. retention of the highly-devel-
oped military machine. It was in
his lack of knowledge of this basic
element of the German psychology
that Chamberlain made a great mis-
take, since he believed that allowing
Hitler a little victory would satiate
his desire for a big one. It is the
feeling of the German people, Dr.
Palyi declared, that a strong army
means prosperity and good national
health, while hard times and a weak
army are almost synonymous.
If Hitler should win, will he re-
tain this gigantic military machine?
For the past five years Germany has
spent 75 per cent of her national
income on armaments, more than'
France, England and Italy combined.

This is why Germany is winning int
Europe today, he said. Germany willI
probably have to maintain her army,
since she will not be able to win a 1
complete military victory.. 1
The backbone of the National So-1
cialist Party in Germany has beent
and will remain the peasantry, Dr.I
Palyi declared. It was not the iiid-
dle-class or the unemployed whot
were mainly responsible for Hitler's
accession to power, he said, but theC
peasantry crying out against hugez
debts, high interest rates on those
debts, and little possibility of that
situation being remedied.1
Another very serious problem fac-
ing Germany is that of finding cap-
ital. The decade of inten sive build-
ing of armaments has left its mark
on Germany in the obsolescence Hof
all other types of productive ma-
chinery. Capital for years has been

Resolutions Group
Prepares Platform
CHICAGO, July 15.-(AP)-Third
term forces turned the routine busi-
ness of opening the Democratic na-
tional convention into a thunderous
'draft Roosevelt" rally today and
iuickly had gallery crowds and dele-
?ates alike roaring their approval of
In appeal that the Chief Executive
e renominated.
With energetic, arm-swinging or-
atory, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of
Chicago, transformed what had been
illed as an address of welcome into
3 virtual nominating speech, closing
n the classic manner with the Pres-
ident's name.
"We will stand, and put forward,
and confirm again that god-sent
guardian of our liberties, the kind
of man that mankind needs," he
shouted, "our beloved President,
Franklin D. Roosevelt."
Points To Record
Calling for an aggressive campaign
rm the "record" of performance,
speaker William B. Bankhead voiced
onight a 1940 Democratic keynote
f uncompromising resistance to
"malignant" aggressors abroad and
assailed the Republican platform as
"political subterfuge."
He spoke a few minutes after
Chairman James A. Farley of the
Democratic National Committee, de-
livering an address which sounded
to some like a formal farewell to his
party colleagues, had . denounced
Republican leaders for "an effort"
to "pin the odious label 'war party'
upon the Democratic party."
Both speakers joined in asserting
that the coming campaign against
Wendell L. Willkie and the Republi-
can party must be waged upon the
record of eight Democratic years in
office. Farley asserted that "unless
we give the country a ticket and a
platform that will satisfy the major-
ity, we have no certainty of victory.
Crowd Of 2,000
Both speakers addressed a crowd
which packed this big red, white and
blue decked stadium to the rafters.
The seatingcapacity exceeds 20,000.
While the convention was going
on an attorney for a brother of the
late Jacob Ruppert was asserting
that the New York Yankees Baseball
Club probably would be sold to a
syndicate headed by Farley "within
two weeks at a price of $4,000,000.
This was taken as a sign that Farley
would not stay on as National Chair-
man very long.
The Resolutions Committee, mean-
while, was busy on the platform,
hearing William Green, President of
the American Federation of Labor,
assert that Mr. Roosevelt would find
an arswer to the unemployment
problem if "permitted," and listen-
ing to Dr. Francis E. Townsend
threaten to start a third party if the
two major parties failed to endorse
his pensions movement.
