(Special Daily Correspondent)
JACKAON, Wyo.-Saturday after-
noon, July 26, the engineers and ge-
ologists of Camp Davis met at Canyon
Lodge in Yellowstone Park.
Early that morning the geologists
had left Carny and traced the tour
of the engineers as far as West Thumb
where they branched off directly ato,
the Canyon. Both groups gave the
many wonders a real going over,
spending most of the afternoon in
seeing the Grand Canyon of the Yel-
24-Mile Canyon
The Canyon is 24 miles in length
and is from 800 to 1,200 feet deep,
varying greatly in width. There are
two large falls in the Canyon, the
highest reaching a height of 308 feet,
nearly twice as tall as Niagara. The
Canyon walls at the bottom of the
falls dance and sparkle with the many
colors of the rock where the sun
shines on the wet surface. These
colors are produced by the altered
skyolite, of which the entire Canyon
is composed.

" At 5 p.m. the groups went to the
grizzly feeding grounds to see the
large bears in their natural state. The
oddity of the feeding is that the visi-
tors are put inside a large iron fence
enclosure while the huge bears roam
and feed at will on the outside. The
grizzly, of which there are 300 in the
park, is rightfully the most respected
of all the wild animals. The weight
of the average bear is about 600
pounds and he may reach eight or
nine feet in length. One of the mor-
tal enemies of the bear cub is his own
father, who may kill and devour it if
the mother relaxes her vigilance,
Community Get-Together a
That night a community get-to-
gether was held, with all the students
joining in folk dancing. Later a dance
was held, and then to bed.
Sunday morning the geologists de-
parted to the geyser basins and other
wonders near Old Faithful.
The engineers left the park early
in the morning and travelled tothe
Shoshone Dam, which is located in a
very narrow granite canyon with
the edges making a V to set the dam
in. The dam was finished in 1910 at
the cost of $1,354,000. Construction
notes of interest to the engineers were
the error in alignment in the long1
tunnel, one-fourth of an inch in three
and three-fourths miles of rock tun-
neling; the method of drilling the
elevator shaft, starting at the bot-
tom and drilling up to the top; and
the recent work tunnels drilled in the
rock to regulate and repair the gates
on the irrigation and power water out-
lets, which are very near the base.
No Visitors Allowed
Since the national emergency no
visitors have been allowed in the
power plant or tunnels, but it was
the engineers good luck to obtain
special permission from the superin-
tendent.who furnished armed guides
to show and explain the dam and
power plant. ,
Probably the most enjoyable hap-
penings of the trip were stalking the
wild life and visiting the dam. No
doubt the students shall never forget
the time a wild bear reared up to the
car and gazed into the interior, beg-
ging for a hand or a hand-out. Nor
will they forget the beautiful sights in
the park.
Hillman Asks Silk, Rayon
Factory Hour Limitation
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9.--(A)-
Sydney Hillman, associate director
of OPM, asked all processors of silk
and rayon today to limit the work
week to 40 hours to help solve the
unemployment problem created by
lack of silk supplies and .a shortage
of substitutes.
Such action was necessary to over-
come "unemployment threatening
the silk industry's 175,000 workers,"
he said.

Prominent in the entertainment
as Los Angeles' Chinatown sweptI
aside scruples to turn the ancient
'Moon Festival" into a show re-
sembling a Hollywood movie pre-
miere, with the Chinese war relief
the object, was Noel Toy, Chinese
fan dancer from San Francisco.
She protested that the available
fans were too small and, not fea-
thery enough, but later consented
to do her dance.

will be wearing formal dresses and
white coats or summer suits.
League Council members promise
the most enjoyable all-campus dance
of the summer at a time when an
especially delightful evening of danc-
ing and refreshments'will climax the
end of the academic year.
The League Council members are
sponsoring the Summer Hop this year.
They are working to make the Sum-
mer Hop as important a dance for
the summer school students as the
famous J-Hop is for the students here
during the winter season.
Clark McClellan and his orchestra
will provide the music for the eve-
ning. Several new musical numbers
which McClellan dedcribes as "sweet
swing" have been especially prepared
for this Friday's Summer Hop.
Tickets for the formal dance are
being sold by League Council mem-
bers, and in the League Social Direc-
tor's Office. They may also be pur-
chased at the door. Admission for
couples is 80 cents. Men and women
are also invited to come alone, for the
women on the League Summer Coun-
cil and their specially invited friends
will act as hostesses during the eve-
ing, taking care to see that everyone'
who comes enjoys himself.

fighting sectors mentioned for the
past few days.
Six of the Nazis' modern tank divi-
sions and four of the slower-moving
infantry divisions' were reported
routed. The army newspaper Red
Star report, which was declared to
have been based on intercepted mes-
sages from the German sanitary
service, gave the losses as follows:
Tabulate Nazi Losses
Forty percent of the 11th, 13th,
14th and 16th tank divisions and of
the 56th, 297th and 299th infantry
Thirty percent of the 17th tank
Twenty percent of the 111th in-
fantry division.
"Tremendous" losses in the 18th
tank division.
Figuring 15,000 men to the infan-
try divisions and 12,000 to the tank
divisions, and using 50 percent for
the "tremendous" losses in the 18th
tank division, the reported German
losses would be approximately 49,800
