Prof. Allen Advises Fighting
Life's Least Resistanee Line

"Life is a continuous battle
against the line of least ;┬░esistance
-If you want adventure you have
to fight for it,"
So says Prof. Shirley W. Allen
of the forestry department.
At the age of 64 he is leading
trail riding parties into the High
Sierras and the Saw Tooth coun-
try of Idaho this summer.
Prof. Allen's fight for adventure
has led him from a reporter's
beat on the Syracuse Post Stand-
ard to wilderness areas in 45 of
the United States and 10 European
Philosophy in Action
This summer's trip to Idaho and
the .Sierras is part of his "battle
against the line of least resist-
ance" philosophy in action,
"I could," he said "remain in
Ann Arbor and have a comfort-
able and highly enjoyable summer
-- and then be extremely dull next
"Instead, I am going to go to
all of the work of digging out my
camping equipment and making
up a pack that includes everything
but weighs only 50 pounds," he
continued. "Then I am going to
spend a month shepherding a lot
of independent people tln'ough
country that will present them
with every opportunity to get
themselves lost, wet, interested
and happy.
"In. eturn for this I shall be
able to meet and talk with some
of my old friends in the Forest
Service and fish some of the best
trout streams in the world. The
result, I hope, will be a pump-up
of my viewpoint and energy, and
my return as a better teacher next
Intangible Crops
When Prof. Allen is not teach-
ing, leading parties through the

National Forests or National parks
or attending a meeting of one of
the innumerable committees of
which he is chairman, member or
consultant, he is quite likely to be
found occupied with his "alleged"
farm of 184 acres, Prof. Allen calls
his farm, which is located in Liv-
ingston County, an "alleged" one
because only eight of the 184 acres
are cultivated. The rest are swamp,
woodland, or reforested areas. Its
chief crops, according to its own-
er, are "relaxation and energy -
both physical and spiritual."
As a matter of honor, Prof. Al-
len feels that he must fish the
lake on his farm as often as pos-
sible. "There is a bass there," he
says, "that has been makging very
bad faces at me for a couple of.
Although "not a distinguished
fisherman," Prof. Allen likes to
fish - when the fish are biting.
He is not, as he says, "one of those
liars who says that he likes to
fish even when he doesn't catch
any fish,"
"State's Worst Shot"
As for hunting and the great
sport of mountain climbing, Prof.
Allen calls himself "the worst shot
in the state of Michigan" and
says that he has never felt the
urge to risk his life solely for the
view to be had from the top of a
high peak.
The professor has a marked dis-
like for those fishermen and hunt-
ers who make no use of their
game and throw it away rather
than bother with cleaning it. "Be-
lieve it or not," he said, "such
people actually exist."
Prof. Allen was convinced that
he and his opinions could be of
no interest to Daily readers. "After
all, I'm just a young feller trying
to get along," he said.

DETROIT, July 3-(/) --Police
today considered a grand jury as
a means of straining gamblers out
of the big Rouge plant of the Ford
Motor Co,
Police chief Ralph Guy estimat-
ed the take of numbers racketeers
in the plant at $5 million dollars a
He said he might ask a grand
jury to investigate after most of
the numbers men ir the plant ap-
parently eluded a carefully laid
police trap.
It was sprung too soon, Guy
said, because the Ford Company
interfered prematurely in the po-
lice investigation. Ford did not
answer this charge.
Apparently the only person
caught in the trap was a CIO
United Auto Workers committee-
man, Edward Hester, 38. Ie denied
any part in the racket.
