Camp For Underprivileged Boys
Is Conducted By University Group
4>_ __ _ _

For 21 years the University Fresh
Air Camp has given a summer vaca-
tion to underprivileged boys of Ann
Arbor, Detroit, Jackson and Flint,
as well as providing a laboratory for
the study of the problems of young
boys.
It all started back in 1919 when
Lewis C. Reimann,. '16, star Wolver-
ine tackle;mand Thomas G. Evans,
general secretary of the Student
White Elected
To Presidency
By Engineers

Christian Association met on the di-
agonal.
Out of this chance meeting came
more than a mere lasting friendship,
more than mere companionship for
two men; out of it came the nucleus
of the idea that was soon to grow in-
to the University Fresh Air Camp.
For two years later the efforts of
the two men resulted in the forma-
tion of the first Fresh Air Camp for
underprivileged children.
It was a small but ambitious little
camp on Patterson Lake, with its
tents and several acres outside of
Port Huron. A striking contract, in-
deed, to today's modern, extensive
camp on the shores of Lake Patter-
son.
Though personnel and location
have changed many times, the camp
has clung steadfastly to its one pur-
pose-to take underprivileged chil-
dren from the hot city streets in the
summer and provide for them a real
summer vacation-one which they
could never have if it were not for
the Fresh Air Camp.
And it is in this strikingly modern
campu on Patterson Lake, with its
commodious central clubhouse, pro-
viding facilities for wood and metal
working, its general offices, buildings
for indoor games as well as outdoor
recreation grounds and a large
porch overlooking blue, sparkling
Lake Patterson, that more than 300

boys every summer are given "the
time of their lives."
Out of this one original purpose
has grown another, which has done
much in the advancement of under-
standing of boy psychology. At the
camp counsellors-usually graduate
students in sociology, psychology or
education-take the boys in hand and
administer them the antidote for
early life that has tended in many
cases to make the boy anti-social.
This psychological approach to
boy nature is vividly illustrated by
this example of tactful leadership.
One of the boys had run away from
three other camps-it was during that
first year, 1921-under the stress of
acute mismanagement. At the Uni-
versity Fresh Air Camp it was decid-
ed that all that was necessary was to
give him some way to express him-
self.
The lad was given the "high" posi-
tion of camp cheer-leader, and went
home from the camp that summer a
better and happier citizen.
And thus the camp has fulfilled its
two purposes, with the help of two
Tag Days held on the campus each
year, under the supervision of Prof.
F. N. Menefee of the engineering col-
lege. Students in the past have been
asked to contribute to this fund, and
have always responded, in such a
way that every year more boys have
been sent to the camp to enjoy a
real summer vacation.j

Kisling To Play Organ

and music supervisor at the Ran-
dolph School in Dayton, O., will offer
a concert at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in
Hill Auditorium.
Scheduled to be heard on the pro-
gram are Bach's "Fantasy and Fugue
in G minor" and three Choral Pre-

"Scherzo from Symphony No. 2," Wi-
dor's "Symphony No. 6," and "Choral
-Improvisations on 'in dulci jubilo'"
by Karg-Elert.

EnglishTeachers To Confer Here

The School of Engineering of the
University has announced a Confer-
mnce for Teachers .of English in Tech-
nical Schools, in order to aid teach-
ers of English in their common prob-
lems.
With the recent increase of at-
tendance at engineering schools,
problems of the teaching of English
have become markedly difficult,, and
it is hoped that through the Confer-
ence discussions of problems and pos-
sible solutions, some basis of experi-
mentation may be reached.
The Conference will be carried on

from June 30 through July 18. but
no actual course of study has been
set up. No credit can be given for
attendance at the Conference, but.
parallel courses will be given in the
graduate school of English and other
University departments.
The general program of the Con-
ference will be held in the auditorium
of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.

Professor A. H. White, director of
the University department of chemi-
cal and metallurgical engineering
was unanimously elected president
of the Society for the Promotion of
Engineering Education at the group's
49th annual convention, held in Ann
Arbor.
First chemical engineer ever to
hold that position, Prof. White was
recognized for his outstanding work
in the University and his contribu-
tions to gas and fuel analysis.
He has been head of the chemical
engineering department since 1914,
during which time he has written
many research papers dealing with
the manufacturing and testing of il-
luminating gas and the manufacture
and properties of Portland cement
and the fixation of nitrogen.
Col. Anson Marston, former dean
of engineering at Iowa State Col-
lege, was awarded the Lamme Medal
for outstanding achievement in en-
gineering education at a convention
meeting.
