duction was in vogue, "we technolo-
gists wondered if we had any right
to be alive, let alone do our job," he
said, but today, with the need of in-
creased productive power, "the pure
scientist is suddenly found to be very
useful, as is always so when affairs
get away from conventional paths."
"Perhaps it is not pleasant to think
that this change has come because
of war," Dr. Compton added. "I be-
lieve that it was coming in spite of
the war, and that the present defense
activity has only switched into tem-'
porary channels and stimulated a
movement which was already under
way."
Dr. Compton explained the organi-
zation and functions of such govern-
mental research bureaus as the Na-
tional Academy of Sciences, the Na-
tional Research Council, the National
Advisory Committee for Aeronautics,
the National Roster of Scientific and
Specialized Personnel and the Office
of Scientific Research and Develop-
ment. He indicated the establish-
mento f the last as "the first time in
our history, so far as I know, that a
scientific research agency in the high
councils of the Federal administra-
tion has been set up so as to coordin-
ate and operate in the iterests of na-
tional defense through all govern-
ment and private agencies and has
been implemented with adequate
funds and authority to perform sig-
nificantly"

Unique Stage
Device Used
In'Contrast'
Although not apparent to the audi-
ence, the revolving stage, one of the
new innovations at the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, will be used in
'The Contrast," which is being pre-
sented this week by the Michigan
Repertory Players of the speech de-
partment.
First used in the production of
"Golden Boy" in the spring drama
season, the revolving stage was also
part of the staging equipment in
"George Washington Slept Here."
This stage is used both as a labor-
saving and time-saving device.
In "The Contrast" the revolving
stage is necessary because the Men-
delssohn stage is not high enough to
house the sets. According to Alex-
ander Wyckoff, who is designing the
scenery for the play, the original
type of production is being followed.
Since the stages of the period when
"The Contrast" was written were
high and narrow, sets 20 feet high
are being used.
Three sets are on the stage in the
from of a triangle. The scene chang-
ing will thus be comparatively easy.
The revolving stage will also be used
in "Storm Over Patsy," "Hobson's
Choice," and "The Gondoliers."
In "Storm Over Patsy" the audi-
ence will actually see the revolving
between the courtroom and court-
room corridor scenes. In these scenes
the new modification of a trailing
stage will also be visible.
Work on the stage during the sum-
mer drama season requires a stage
crew of at least 20. Mr. Wyckoff is
assisted as scenery designer by Rob-
ert Mellencamp. Mr. Wyckoff is
opening the first school of study of
purely stage craft at Edgewater, N. J.
this fall.
"Grasshopper
Planes' Seen
As Army Aid
By RICE YANER
FORT BLISS, Tex., July 16.-(P)-
"Grasshopper" planes, the kind a
person can learn to fly in 10 hours,
won high praise today as a valuable
aid to cavalry and Major General
Innis P. Swift assigned them a def-
inite job in a First Cavalry Divi-
sion's10-day desert maneuvers which
begin tomorrow.
In an official critique of the two-
day exercise in which headquarters
perfected administrative practice in
the field, General Swift said a grand
performance was turned in by 10
light two-place commercial planes,
flown by civilian pilots as messengers
between command posts in the blist-
ery, humpy desert.
One Plane To A Brigade
The General said one plane would
be assigned to each brigade command
post while the 17,000 cavalrymen
were maneuvering in the 24-square
mile area of sand and parched mes-
quite in New Mexico, about 30 miles
north of El Paso.
In the last two days the planes-
Piper Cubs, Aeroncas and Taylor-
craft flown from Eastern factories-
have been landing almost any place
between the innumerable mounds of
sand topped by desert vegetation,
where command posts were estab-
lished.,
Shouted To Ground
In cases where landings were im-
possible, the pilots or their observers
shouted theirimessages to those on
the ground. , Their voices carried
easily over the noise of the throttled

motor as the ships flew about fifty
feet off the ground.
Not intended as combat craft, the
ships are being used solely as behind-
the-front-line messengers. They can
fly so slowly and so low that they
could land almost immediately if they
should be threatened by fighter craft.
General Swift told his assembled
officers that several times when the
radio network was janimed, messages
were delivered by the small planes as
much as half an hour before they
were received by radio.
One company is manufacturing
small planes at the rate of one every
20 minutes.
About 60 percent of week-end op-
eration of automobiles is for busi-
ness or necessary transportation.

German Candidates For Russian Concentration Camps

Director Sam Hill Outlines %CC

work and training to the millions of
young unmarried men at the height
of the depression," began Sam Hill,
Michigan CCC Director before the
Guidance Workshop yesterday.
"Over 90% of the junior enrollees
are under 21 years of age. This is
a change from the early days of the
CCC, and is due partly to the changed
age restrictions which have been low-
ered from 18 to 28 to 17 to 23%. Fif-
ty percent are only 17 years old.
Eighty percent of the boys have
never had any work experience." Mr.
Hill quoted these figures to show
that there has been quite a shift in
the type of boy now in the CCC camp,

"About 30%," he continued, "have
not completed the eighth grade, with
10% who have completed high school.
State Deficit Is Reduced
LANSING, July 16.--(A')-The state
general fund deficit during the past
fiscal year ;was reduced to approxi-
mately $14,411,000, it was announced
today by Auditor General Vernon J.
Brown in a "preliminary financial
statement." .He said this substanti-
ated his earlier estimate the deficit
would be reduced from $27,011,861
last year to $14,500,000.

.tending the graduate classes. Michi-
gan Normal at Ypsilanti has 42 per-
sons listed on the graduate list. The
three colleges listed above show a de-
crease in the enrollment. Western
Michigan shows the slightest decrease
of the four. Enrollment figures at
that school show a total of 179. This
number is approximately the same as
last year according to Dr. Woody,
who is the graduate adviser to the
four Michigan Colleges of Education.
Dr. Woody conducted conferences
during his stay on Central's campus
with members of the graduate division
of the local summer session. The con-
ferences were held so as to give the
students a chance to work out a pro-
gram of work for next year and at
the same time answer any present
problems which the students might
have.
According to plans as' announced
today by Dr. Cleon C. Richtmeyer,
director of the Summer Session at the
four courses will be given in the grad-i
uate school next year.
The course to be given are his-
tory, Civil War and Reconstruction,
second semester; psychology, Genetic
Psychology, first semester and con-
tinued through the second; sociology,
Sociological Theory and Social Prob-
lems, first semester; education, Con-
struction of Elementary-School Cur-
riculum, first semester; education,
High School Curriculum, second sem-
ester; and education, Mental Hygiene

ester and continued through the sec-
ond.
Plans are also getting Under way
for a graduate club dinner on Cen-
tral's campus with Dr. L. Hopkins,
director of the summer session at the

he visits the campus in the near
future.
