OLIVET - (P)-- Olivet College

ASHBY and Dean J. D. Bennett
said a survey showed that Olivet
could maintain its varied curricu-
lum with a smaller faculty this
year. More than 15 faculty mem-

East Indies Keeps Eagle
Eye on Quiet Volcanoes
BANDUNG, Java-(YP)-Krakatau, the island volcano that blew
itself out of the water in 1883 and killed 36,000 persons, left behind
more than a fearful memory.
A new volcanic island is rising " from the same spot in the
Java Sea between Sumatra and Java. This monster offspring is
called Anak (child of) Krakatau. Like its mother, it is a bad actor
rumbling and belching clouds of sulphurous vapor.
* * * *
RECENT TESTS .of material spewed out, by Anak Krakatau'
showed the 10-year-old volcano probably is at the beginning of a new
eruption cycle. This "favors the conclusion" that present activity is
remote from a major outburst, a government survey cautiously points
Anak Krakatau is but one of the 149 volcanic centers in the
East Indies. Official reports show the others have taken 130,000
lives since 1800. A major volcanic disaster causing death and
destruction has occurred every three years.
The man responsible for keeping an eye on the troublesome
mountains of the Indies is a 58-year-old Russian, formerly a colonel
in the Czar's Cossacks. W. A. Petroeschevsky "probably is the most
active 'retired' army man anywhere" his colleagues say.
* * 4' *
HE AND A SKELETON STAFF of nine keep tab of a string
of mountains that stretch in a .3,000-mile arc to form the backbone
of the East Indies Archipelago. Petroeschevsky has scaled 11 volcanos
and observed 30 others from the air in the last two months.
"Before Mother Krakatau blew in 1883, she was an island of
fair size, five miles in length and three across. She hadn't erupted
in two centuries," Petroeschevsky said.
"One day in August, the island disappeared under a cloud of
black vapor that rose to almost 20 miles. Four great explosions the
next day blew away the island."
Tidal waves circling from the area devastated the shores of
Java and Sumatra, flooding hundreds of villages and drowning thou-
sands of persons. A thick fog left Batavia in complete darkness.
* * * *
"BUT THE ERUPTION OF Krakatau was mild compared to
Tambora, which blew up 68 years earlier," Petroeschevsky said.
The most recent disaster of great magnitude was. the eruption
in 1930 of Merapi in Central Java. A glowing cloud of hot gases
spilled suddenly from the crater, seared the countryside for miles
and killed 1,300.
The eruption of Tambora (on Soembawa Island off Java's east
coastl brought death to an estimated 92,000 persons.

Mrs. Helen Forrest Lauterer is
a designing woman.
But the male population,on cam-
pus needn't become alarmed be-
cause Mrs. Lauterer's designing
is confined to the Sewing Room
of the League.
* * *
ON LEAVE from the University
of Oklahoma, Mrs. Lauterer is here
for the summer to design and make
the costumes for the Speech De-
partment's summer series of plays.
Her most recent accomplishment
is the completion of the 27 cos-
tumes used in the current play,
"The Trojan Woman."
One of the most difficult
parts of the costuming for the
Greek play was the making of
the half dozen suits of armor.
However, aid given by Speech
Department crews and her two
graduate assistants was "per-
fectly wonderful" she:said. She,
expressed special gratitude to
George Crapo who helped with
the armor.
This summer at Michigan Mrs.
Lauterer has designed costumes
for six plays in as many weeks.
But with approximately 300 plays
to her credit she doesn't seem to
mind the hard work.
SHE HAS DONE costume de-
signing in the professional the-
atre as well as in university and
community productions. Mrs. Lau-
terer has designed for the Cleve-
land Playhouse, and the Goodman
Theatre in Chicago.
She also designed costumes
for student showst at Western
Reserve in Cleveland, Northwest-
ern in Chicago, the University
of Iowa, Bennington College and
the University of Oklahoma.
Mrs. Lauterer received her ori-
ginal training at Carnegie Tech,
the first drama school in the coun-

field for women who can qualify,
she said. A good designer, how-
ever, not only has to be an artist,
but she must know how td handle
materials, keep within a specified
budget, and must have a back-
ground in the history of costum-
ing besides having creative and
constructive ability, Mrs. Laut-
erer said.
Once a woman has the back-
ground she has a great deal of
opportunity to advance since there
are very few good costume design-
ers. She added that the univer-
sity or community theatre gives a
designer a greater chance to dis-
play her talents with the greater
number and wider range of plays
Despite the time spent and the
very exacting work required in
costume designing, Mrs. Lauterer
readily admits "I wouldn't be in
anything else for the world!"

Tinker Calls


For Private
Government participation in
forest conservation should be lim-
ited to fire fighting and insect
and disease control, according to
E. W. Tinker, executive secretary
of the American Paper and Pulp
Tinker spoke yesterday in the
University's summer lecture series
on "Natural Resources in World
HE DECLARED that the devel-
opment of America was made pos-
sible by private ownership of land,
and called for a resumption of the
traditional national policy of en-
couraging private ownership.
The paper industry represen-
tative denounced current pro-
posals for increased government
control of private forest prac-
He branded such proposals as
"socialistic" and "collectivist."
' "A report issued by the U.S. For-
est Service in 1948 indicates that
on some 51 million acres in some
4400 properties, the cutting on 68
per cent is of a food or high
order," he said.
* * *
TINKER explained that most of
these properties are owned by lum-
ber and pulp companies.
As Tinker sees it, the problem
of forestry conservation lies
with the owners of small wooded
areas. On small holdings, he
said that "71 per cent of the
cutting is poor or destructive."
Thus, government regulation of
forest cutting practices would be
aimed at these small plot owners,
some four million people.
Such regulation, according to
Tinker, would be "a terrific under-
