"The Good Lord didn't mean for
women to be doctors" and called
a "brazen, shameless hussey," Miss
Blackwell managed to graduate
from Geneva, Pa., Medical Col-
lege at the top of the 1894 class.
During the radio show, a pres-
ent-day woman doctor, Dr. Mar-
tha R Westerberg, associate pro-

a summary of Dr. Blackwell's
many achievements.

Increase in Volunteers Fills
Most of Michigan Draft Quota

LANSING (P) A surge of volun-
teers is filling most of Michigan's
draft quota, Lt. Col. Arthur A.
Holmes, state selective service di-
rector, reported yesterday.
"The number of volunteers is
picking up drastically," C o1.

Holmes said. "Many high school
boys, knowing they face the draft,
have volunteered but wanted to
take their summer vacations first.
They will be ready to go in the
early fall."
Col. Holmes said it now appears
that Detroit vill be able to meet
its August and September draft
calls entirely with volunteers. The
remainder of the state will fill its
calls 80 to 90 per cent with vol-
unteers, he said.
The average Michigan call for
the next 12 months would be
about 1,100 men a month, Col.
Holmes said.
Col. Holmes also said that draft
quotas may have to be boosted if
a new Air Force recruiting pro-
gram does not meet expectations.

,Vote Today
On Wheat
WASHINGTON (A) - W h e a t
growers vote today in a nationwide
quota referendum with just about
everybody predicting they'll go for
rigid controls designed to lop sev-
en million acres of wheat from thes
nation's overloaded grain supplies.
The nearly one million farmersj
who plant more than 15 acres of
wheat each are eligible to vote.
More than two-thirds of them
must favor the quota controls if
they are to become effective.
Reduced Allotments
Secretary of Agriculture Ben-
son already has reduced allot-
ments for next year's wheat pro-
duction to 55 million acres. That's
seven million acres less than the
1954 allotment. But the farmers
have the right to overrule Ben-
son's acreage reduction.
However, if they should vote
"no" to the marketing quota con-
trols today, they would cut their
Federal subsidy guarantee to 50'
per cent of parity on the wheat
they can't sell in the market.
If they vote "yes," they will get
the prevailing subsidy rate, what-
ever it may be when the 1955'
wheat crop is harvested.
The national wheat allotmentj
is apportioned among farmers
largely on the basis of past plant-
ings. A farmer must plant within
his allotment in order to be eli-
gible for government price sup-
port aid.
Likewise, the allotment is the
basis for marketing quotas. Sales
of wheat grown on acreage in ex-
cess of an allotment are subject to
a heavy cash penalty.
Right now, wheat farmers are
being guaranteed 90 per cent of
parity, which is the figure de-
clared by law to be fair to the
farmer in relation to what he has
to buy,
Call for Shift
President Eisenhower and Sec-
retary Benson have called for a
shift from the rigid 90 per cent
guarantee to a flexible system
ranging from 75 to 90 per cent of
This proposal has drawn bitter
blasts from many congressional
Democrats and some Republicans.
The Senate Agriculture Commit-
tee has voted to go against the
administration and continue the
rigid 90 per cent supportsfor an-
other year.
ThegHouse has taken a middle
ground, approving a flexible sub-
sidy scale guaranteeing 82/2 to
90 per cent of parity.
It works out this way in dol-
lars and cents: at 90 per cent,
wheat farmers now are being
guaranteed $2.24 a bushel. If the
drop is to 75 per cent, the guaran-
tee would be $1.87, on the basis
of present prices.

In Detroit
EAST LANSINGA)-Juvenile de-
linquency in Detroit has been in-
creasing at a rate of 28 per cent
a year, the Michigan State College
government workshop was told
Inspector Ralph Baker, com-
manding officer of the Detroit Po-
lice Youth Bureau, said the in-
crease was a matter of growing
"There is a trend also," he said,
"from crimes against property to
crimes against persons, from the
'sneaky' act to one of violence."
Faster Than Nation
Sam Rabinovitz, executive sec-
retary of the Michigan Youth
Commission, said juvenile delin-
quency is increasing in.Michigan
faster than in the nation as a
whole. The number of crimes in-
volving violence also is on the in-
crease, he said.
One reason for the increase,
Rabinovitz said, is that courts are
now sending in more complete re-
ports on such cases and that more
juvenile delinquents are coming to
the attention of law enforcement
groups and other agencies.
"We still don't think our youth
are going to the dogs," he said.
"A vast number of them grow into
good citizens and the majority of
parents are doing a good job."

of piano at the University, will
