SlossonGives
First Lecture
Reviews Events on
Home, War Fronts
In the first of his weekly summer
lectures in the Rackham ampitheatre
Prof., Preston Slosson discussing the
recent developments in current
events said yesterday that he con-
sidered a second front this summer
"highly probable."
Prof. Slosson divided his speech
into two parts, one on foreign affairs
and one on domestic affairs. In con-
sidering the possibility of a second
front this summer he discussed the
balance of advantages of the Italian
route, the Balkan route, or an attack
in northern Europe.
. Under the last head he discussed
the revolt of Congress agairist the
authority of the President. Instances
under this were the dispute over
price administration, the passing of
the anti-strike bill over the Presi-
dent's veto, and the attack on the of-
fice of war information.
"On the strike matter Congress
and the President had the same end
in view-the suppression of strikes-
differing only as to the means. The
Congressional vote was aimed even
more as a rebuke to labor than as a
rebuke to the President," Prof. Slos-
son said.
"With regard to price administra-
tion the most important thing is to
prevent inflation because if the cost
of living goes up wages will have to
go up too and it would be impossible
to hold workers to their contracts."

Oil Ban Is Nation-Wide
WASHINGTON, June. 29.-(,P)--
Secretary Ickes, as petroleum ad-
ministrator, tonight made nation-
wide the ban of delivery of fuel oil
to householders or industrial users
for consumption in new oil-burning
installations.
No exceptions will be granted any-
one after next July 22, Ickes warned.

Two University of Michigan geolo-
gists are studying rock formations in
the Mackinaw Cit St. Ignace area
searching for ne' oil resources in
Michigan for the State Department
d f Conservation.
d -Prof. Kenneth K. Landes, chair-
y man of the University's department
- of geology, and Prof. George M. Eh-
t lers will spend three montns in ex-
amining the field and the remainder
of the year compiling a report on
n their findings.

The Red Cross Surgical Dressing

r p.m. just a week from today, Jean
Whittemore, '44, chairman of the
t unit, announced.
, Emphasizing that the work of roll-
o ing bandages is of great importance,
the chairman' added, all women
y on campus, undergraduate and grad-
uate, summer session and summer
term students, are asked to take
part.
"Since the unit is open only for
eight weeks, we want the summer
term students to realize that and
plan to fit the work into their first
eight weeks," she said.
Two consecutive hours of work are
asked of the students, and the unit
will be open every Wednesday and
Thursday afternoon beginning next
week.
Freshman girls who wish to con-
tribute two hours of their time may
do so since eligibility cards are not
required.
Instructors of the unit who have
returned for the summer include
Betty Carpenter, '45, Nancy Pottin-
ger, '45, Kay Brennan, '43, Betty
Jones, '45, and Jean Caldwell, '44.

13 Latin Americans
Will Study Health
Public health experts from fiv
Latin American republics will arrice
at the University Monday for a pre
paratory course in English to precede
the investigation of public health
questions.
The thirteen experts are from
Paraguay, El Salvador, Ecuador,
Brazil and Bolivia, and they will do
extensive research as well as field

work. Brought to this country by the
Institute of Inter-American affairs
the group will work in medical
schools, hospitals and clinics with
specialists.

lie thousands of feet below the sur-
face in the present oil fields, rise
gradually to the north until they
crop out on the earth's surface on
both sides of the Straits of Mackinac
and on the adjacent islands.
By identifying and mapping these
outcroppings near the Straits and
making similar studies of the onder-
ground formiations farther south in
present oil-producing areas, the sci-
entists expect to be able to map the
sub-surface rock strata for the vast
areas lying in between.
Mapping May Lead'to oil .
Several oil-bearing rock structures
in the central Michigan basin are
known to "pinch out" to the north
as they rise with the general contour
of the State's rock formations, Pro-
fessor Landes points out. The pres-
ent mapping program, he explains,
may lead to the discoery of new
areas of oil production since it is
known that formations which thin
out and disappear in this manner
afford ideal "traps" for the accumu-
lation of oil.
Oil field exploration in Michigan
is greatly complicated, Professor
Landes points out, by the fact that
the original oil-bearing structures of
the State are covered by heavy lay-
ers of more recent rock and soil and
by other layers of glacial deposits.
In some areas,.he says, the latter is
several hundred feet deep.
The new survey, however, Prof es-
sor Landes declares, should be help-
ful in guiding future oil' searches in
Michigan. By observing the out-
croppings of the oil bearing strata in
the Straits area and plo.tting the
same strata as they appear farther
south, by means of cuttings from
wells already drilled, it will be pos-
sible to make fairly accurate maps
of these structures for the areas in
between.
X-Ray Exams
Are Given by
The University Health Service
completed yesterday the first X-ray
examinations ever given to summer
students.
Due to a shortage of film, the ex-
ams were given only t those stu-
dents who displayed symptoms of
tuberculosis. This brings to the
10,000 mark the number of X-ray
exams which the Health Service has
given since June 1942.
During the same period the Health
Service handled 118,331 dispensary
galls, filled 13,978 prescriptions and
treated 7,394 colds.
Dr. Forsythe, director of the ser-
vice, commenting on the program
scheduled for the summer said: "Of
course we have our regular duties,
taking care of the health of the stu-
dents. Then we have also contract-
ed to take care of the medical needs
of the Army personnel on campus."
Dr. Forsythe stressed the fact that
though the University enrollment of
8,000 (including service men) is no
larger than the regular peacetime
enrollment, the Health Service will
be in serious difficulties because of
a shortage of doctors and nurses.
The Health Service situation how-
ever is no more serious than that of
most university services.

undergraduate offices of the Michi-

year the work has been carried on
during the summer term. Final re-
ports of the committee for 1942-43
revealed a total number of some 300
volunteers and over 10,000 hours of
work.
Two consecutive hours a week is
the minimum time each volunteer
may contribute. Red and blue vol-
unteer jackets are furnished by the
hospital; white, navy blue, or blackI
skirts and white blouses must be
furnished by the volunteers.
Miss Kathryn S. Walsh, supervisor
of all volunteers in the UniversityI
Hospital feels that women volunteersI
have contributed much toward main-
taining the high standards of the
hospital during the critical wartime
shortage of regular staff members.

pital volunteers may be obtained by
