CSet For Toda
Weeks' Activities To End
With Informal Meetin
Of Citizens In Mosher
The second annual Wolverine
Girls' State will end this morning
with an informal gathering of the 200
delegates in the living room of Mosher
The week of recreational and edu-
cational activities was brought to a
climax last night at a get-together
in the Kellogg Auditorium, at which
certificates and pins were presented
to all the delegates and field day
awards were given to outstanding
Yesterday morning's activities in-
cluded a colony meeting and a field
day at Palmer Field. The field day
was featured by a group presentation
of exercises, the completion of the
tournament, an outdoor barbecue
lunch, and a song contest.
Started last year, the Girls' State
is sponsored by the American Legion
Auxiliary in cooperation with the
University. The purpose of the pro-
gram is to train girls who -possess
qualities of leadership. Training in
citizenship and leadership and in-
struction concerning vocations form
the core of the program.
Housed in Mosher Hall, the dele-
gates were organized into 11 colonies
named for the 13 original colonies.
The girls selected their own officers
and made their own laws. Each col-
ony was headed by a governor-gen-
eral and a secretary chosen from the
delegates, and by a counselor, who is
a University student.

occupy the Cary L. Hill cabin. It is
agreed that these cabins are the
show places of the camp and must be
kept in fitting condition as such.
An exceptional opportunity is avail-
able this year and was taken full
advantage of when permission was
obtained to visit the logging opera-
tions of the Von Platen-Fox Corn-
pany. An exercise was given some
17 miles from camp, enabling the
men to secure good practice in esti-
mating and scaling logs at the stump.
In this manner it was possible to esti-
mate the full volume of each tree,
and to check the estimate by scaling
the volume of the several logs making
up the tree. Fallers, team skidding
and truck loading crews were work-
ing in adjacent territory and time
was allotted to visit each unit of the.
operation. A-Jammer skid loaders
are used to load the semi-trailer
trucks which carry about 20 logs, or
some 2,000 board feet per load.
Camp Has Many Features
Duties are shared by everyone to
cut down the expenses of operating
Camp. Some 15 duties are listed in
connection with handling of the mess
and maintenance of buildings, equip-
ment, and the wood supply. An effort
is made to alternate assignments to
allow turns at outside jobs and in-
side tasks. Each man will likely
serve a week's time at each duty list-
ed before the 15-week session is over.
The weekend has given an oppor-
tunity to visit Iron River. Iron River,
Stambaugh, and Crystal Falls become
favorites of the men in camp each'
year. Camp facilities for recreation
include hiking, photography, swim-
ming, fishing and boating. "Yehudi"
the dugout is drying out on the dock
and will soon be in service. A scow
and two rowboats already serve their
purpose. A local ferry service has
been inaugurated to the benefit of
fishermen who wade along the op-
posite shore and keen competition de-
velops, when everyone is anxious- to
strike out for recreation in the city.
Game is plentiful in the vicinity of
camp and deer, porcupines, wood-
chucks and rabbits are commonly
seen. .
After a hard ics storm a few days
ago a beautiful rainbow fell across the
trees on the opposite side of Golden
Lake, bathed in sunshine except for
the foot which faded across to our
camp. Let us hope this is an omen
of good news to follow from Camp
Filibert Roth.
