on this campus several years ago

From Camp Filibert Roth:

Correspondent Tells Of Work
And Various Camp Experiences




AskedBy State
EAST LANSING, July 8. -{)-
Michigan's Civilian Defense leaders
stressed the need of spurring activi-
ties of local civilian defense volun-
teer offices at a "workshop" meeting
today of approximately 100 county
and municipal volunteer directors.
Col. Owen J. Cleary, state chief air
raid warden, told the group that
although minimum requirements are
being met in the state's protective
services, enrollment of volunteers
should continue in the air raid war-
den and auxiliary firemen and police

special to The Daily
The novelty of the first few days
at camp is beginning to wear away.
It would be incorrect to say that we
are falling into a routine grind, how-
ever, as practically every day brings
something new-even in the weather.
Plenty of wholesome food, fresh air
and outdoor exercise makes one phys-,
ically fit and ready to tackle what-
ever the new day may bring.
In the line of work it has been the
order of the day during the past
week to become familiar with timber
estimating and the fundamentals of
mapping with traverse board, hand
compass and pacing. Appreciation of
the significance of contours has been
gained through experience with the
Abney Level and trailer tape in topo-
graphic surveying. Some of the fel-
lows still maintain, however, that
Golden Lake flows uphill from camp
-others insist the water level fluc-
tuates every few hours. There is time
Ifor activities other than work, as was
mentioned in a previous article.
Many Use Cameras
Camera enthusiasts have been
warned to be ever on the alert-op-
portunities to photograph wild game
during their stay at camp occur fre-
quently, but very unexpectedly. The
same situation is rarely repeated.
Such an instance came a few days
ago. Parties of students were strung
out along the Forest Highway when
one man suddenly spied a black bear
crossing the road just ahead. After
her followed in single file three small
cubs-teddy bear size. They looked
curiously up and down the road and
then the four disappeared into the
underbrush flanking the sides. A
group of us gathered at the point of
exit and followed the spoor they had
left behind-turned up leaves, twigs
out of place and branches freshly
disturbed. We caught a brief glimpse
of the mother fading into the dark
background some 30 yards ahead. We
broke into two parties and my part-
ner and I were fortunate enough to
come upon two of the cubs once
again. We were standing on a rotted
moss-covored log peering into the
thick brush and the two cubs came
within 10 feet of us, stopping short
when they saw us, gazing curiously
for a moment or. two before rolling
silently down the adjacent log and
disappearing from view. It was too
shady to get aepicture of them and
they were not seen again that day.
Bears bear Camp
The following evening a mother
bear and three cubs were reported
seen near camp by Dr. O'Roke. Sev-
eral fellows immediately grabbed
their cameras and went as silently as
haste would permit down the trail
from camp to a large hemlock along
the lake shore where the mother had
shooed the cubs to safety and placed
herself on guard at the base of the
tree.bShe evidently believed we were
not bent on molesting her cubs and
several pictures were taken of her
on guard duty. Ken Nelson, our camp
barber, had dragged me off the bar
German Language Table
Held In League Cafeteria
Conceived as a substitute for the

ber stool in the midst of the long-
i'eeded haircut to snap pictures of
the bear. We made a few noises to
attract the animal's attention while
Ken crept to a tree which offered
protection and a better position for
a good picture.. She was not disturbed
by the - click of the camera and as-
sumed several poses for his benefit-
looking full at the camera, and again
placing her paws around the base of
the tree and looking up toward her
cubs in the branches above.
This was the most interesting ex-
perience the men at camp have
'shared to date and it is hoped that
the bear will remain friendly enough
to repeat the visit with the cubs. It
is certain that photography has tak-
en a new rise in popularity and we
are waiting for the most successful
takes of our interesting foursomer.
Yes, the haircut was completed
before the day was done.
