University Contributions Send
120 Boys to Fresh Air Camp

Pantelleria Commander

As a result of the $1,300 contrib-
uted by University of Michigan stu-
dents last spring, one hundred twen-
ty boys from Detroit, Pontiac and.
surrounding metropolitan areas are
attending the University Fresh Air
Camp near Pinckney, Mich., which
opened a week ago.
Sent to the camps by social
agencies, these boys are given a
month's vacation, and at the same
time are studied by trained psychi-
atrists and sociologists. Twenty-two
graduate students, from Philadelphia
to Los Angeles, are at the camp to
serve as counselors.
During the last three years this
camp has become \ an important
training afield for psychiatry and
sociology work; it also furnishes edu-
cators and group leaders with an op-
portunity to make a first-hand study
of problems of maladjusted youth. All
counselors taking advanced courses
in psychology and sociology receive
credit toward a degree.

Washington Monkey
Wages War On Cats
WASHINGTON, June 28.- ()-
The cats in Washington are going to
need all their nine lives unless some-
one does something about a monkey.
Police, putting together reports
from various householders, said the
monkey, roving the southeast part
of the city:
Stole a broom with which he
pounded a cat; snatched up another
cat, cuffed it, threw it over a fence;
pounced on two more cats, hurling
them up into the branches of a tree;
disappeared, probably looking for
more cats.

"Now the Army's taking overt" was
the disturbing rumor circulating
among Navy men stationed in West
Quad yesterday until someone dis-
covered that this army was clad in
blue jeans and shirts and was bet-
ter known as the "Girls' Ground
The first project for summer ses-
sion ground crew workers was to
remove hedges from the courts in
the central part of the West Quad.
Technically this was against regula-
tions as no women are allowed aboard
training ships. Howevee'because the
work was part of Navy orders an
exception was made.
Other regulations were strictly ob-
served. Particularly the one prohib-
iting Navy men from working with-
out compensation unless given spe-
cial permission from the command-

ful thorns. Abundant advice was
offered on the art of plunging a

ticulture experts were brought to
light by the situation.
As the morning wore on and as
an increasing number of bluejackets
and leathernecks continued to find
reasons for passing through (passing
to would be more correct) the courts,I
C.O.'s began to "suggest" that the
boys withhold their advice and allow
the girls to work without benefit of
conversation-much to the displea-
sure of both watchers and workers.
As the sun grew warmer and the
work correspondingly harder, mem-
bers of the crew would gladly have
exchanged the job of extracting
plants for the job of cleaning bar-
At the end of the day regular em-
ployes of the University Buildings
and Grounds Department observed
that apparently the (Land) Army
had made a hit with the Navy.

Holland Farmers
Find Gas Supply
HOLLAND, Mich., July 3.-(R)-A
number of suburban residents of Hol-
land and farmers living along M40
are not going to be worried about
gasoline rationing for quite some
time now. Here's why. A tank truck
containing 4,000 gallons of gasoline
went out of control Friday, tipped

EAST LANSING, July 3.- ( )--
Michigan State College's war train-

cludes 1,500 air crew students and
250 uniformed veterinary students.

U.S. Food Goes
To Mart iniqe
Loaded Ships Await
Officials' Discussions
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, July 3.
-(P)-Food to relieve the hungry
natives of Martinique and Guade-
loupe rides at anchor here, only a
few miles away, its unloading depen-
dent upon the outcome of talks be-
tween Vice Admiral John H. Hoover,
Commandant of the 10th Naval Dis-
trict, and Admiral Georges Robert,
French High Commissioner for the
Antilles, on the future political sta-
tus of French insular possessions
in the West Indies.
(From Algiers it was reliably re-
ported that the National Committee
of Liberation had named a member
of its Washington staff as special
envoy to Martinique. The envoy,
whose name was given only as Hop-
penot, will go to Martinique to dis-
cuss entry of the Antilles into the
anti-Vichy French empire.)
Only a word from Robert is needed
for the Navy to give the signal for
the food-laden ships to turn toward
Martinique and Guadeloupe harbors
to discharge vast stores of badly
needed meats, rice,; saltfish, and can-
ned goods supplied by the lease-lend
food distribution administration.
For months, fugitives from the
Robert regime have been unanimous
in describing the food conditions
within the isles as desperate since
the United States halted food ship-
ments last November, and there have
been reports of food riots in parts of
Martinique and Guadeloupe.
At least two ships and perhaps a
third were loaded in New York some
time in May and arrived at San
Juan last month. They stayed. in
San Juan harbor several days, await-
ing further instructions. They now
are "somewhere in the Caribbean,"
awaiting the outcome of the conver -
sations between Robert and Hoover.
Presumably, if Robert remains un-
yielding and clings to his past poli-
cies, this food will be diverted to
some other West Indian isle, as hap-
pened with a shipment of meats and
other foods three months ago.
It is known that one of two ships
formerly in service between Marti-
nique and the United States was car-
rying foodstuffs under the original
Robert-Hoover agreement until the
crew mutinied at New Orleans and
refused to return to Fort-de-France
as long as Robert maintained a pro-
Vichy attitude.
