Sigler Delays
Rent Control
Wants 'BestQualified'
For Local Committees
LANSING, July 9-(JP)-A delay
f several days in the appoint-
nent of local rent control commit-
ees in order to get "the best qual-
fled representatives" was fore-
ast today by Governor Sigler.
"I intend to recommend the ap-
ointment of advisory committees
n the 12 Michigan rent control
,reas just as soon as possible,"
rid Sigler. "It probably will take
ome time to work out these ap-
ointments. I want to get the
est. qualified representatives of
,he tenant and the landlord plus
rnpartial members of the public
,t large to serve on these boards."
Sigler declared landlords should
et a fair return for their invest-
nent. At the same time, he said,
enants should be protected from
skyrocketing rent increases. The
governor said the rent control
oards should be' able to make rec-
mmendations which would have
, sound foundation in fact.
[rish Culture
Pattern Traced
Prof. Myles Dillon Celtic schol-
,r at the University of Chicago,
peaking last night on the arch-
,ic character of Irish tradition,
leclared that Ireland's strange
eatures "are the result of surviv-
I1 and not borrowing from sub-
tratum of earlier people."
His address was delivered be-
ore the fourth public forum of
he Linguistic Institute, at Rack-
am Building.
"Ireland, on the margin of the

)illon said, "has preserved arch-
ic features which have been lost

University Students Read Six
Hours Without Fatigue Signs


1 YEAR 4.50
1 YEAR 4.25

Recent experiments show that
high school and college students
can read for six hours at a time
without evidences of fatigue ac-
cording to Dr. Walter F. Dear-
born of Harvard University.
Dr. Dearborn, who spoke here
yesterday on "Reading and Visual
Fatigue" discussed experiments
that have been carried on to de-
termine the length of time stu-
dents can read wihout strain.
Groups of high school and col-
lege students were asked to read
books of easy and difficult read-
ing and microfilm reproductions,
he said. Results of the experi-

Checks are being held a the
Ann Arbor Post Office for the fol-
lowing veterans: William C. Gor-
do, Robert M. Lowry, Allen J.
These checks will be returned to
Columbus July 11.
The Main Ann Arbor Post Of-
fice is holding checks which will
be returned to Columbus July 17
for the following veterans:
Stanford H. Abramovits, David

vey C. Allison, Charles M. All-

Additional names of veteran's
for whom the Post Office is hold-
ing checks will be printed tomor-

ment indicate that students with
normal or well corrected vision
can read a book of ordinary dif-
ficulty or a "dry" book for six
hours, and under none too com-
fortable conditions, he said.
Dr. Dearborn explained that
tests to indicate fatigue were made
before and after the reading ses-
sions. The main evidence was
secured through the continuous
electrical recording of eye move-
ments during the entire reading
periods. This was done by means
of light-weight electrodes which
picked up the electrical currents
generated when the eyes moved.
These electrical changes were am-
plified and recorded on tape, in-
dicatingc hanges in the func-
tioning of the eyes resulting from
prolonged reading, he said
Dr. Dearborn used a colored
moving picture film showing the
technique used to illustrate his

Smith Reports
Teachers Need
Health Work
Michigan teacher training in
public health covers too little that
involves experience, Julian Smith,
chief of the state department's.
public instructors' experimental
division of health and recreation
declared yesterday
Speaking at the three day con-
ference on the health of the
school child, Smith declared that
teachers needed to be taught
more of the aspects of "health-
ful living" while they are being
trained so that "when they talk
about health to their pupils they
will know better what they are
talking about."
In an earlier talk, Mrs. Mar-
jorie Cosgrove, home and living
counsellor in the Highland Park
public schools, said that male
high school seniors are mature
enough to study child care.
"It's good to see a student come
out of a nursery class pretty well
worn out," she said. It will teach
him, among other things, that
when he is a husband and a fath-
er not to come home from work
and ask his wife what she has
been doing all day."
Such teaching has been going
on in the Highland Park High
School for the past five years.
Mr. Congrove revealed. Girls
were compelled to take the course
and boys could take it if they
wished. "At first they were bash-
ful about taking it, but now al-
most all of them sign up."
Mrs. Cosgrove declared that
such training was "worth while"
adding that in one of her classes
last year she had a veteran who
was the father of a six weeks old
