department, in reply to the glaring
statements in the Detroit Free Press
yesterday morning, stated in an in-
terview yesterday afternoon, that he
would stand pat on every thing that
he said at the meeting of the techni-
cal branch of the Pulp and Paper As-
sociation, held at Kalamazoo Wednes-
day. The Free Press erroneously
stated that the meeting was held at
Battle Creek. It was the fault of the
reporter in not obtaining the exact
details that has caused the great
commotion.
"The comment was evidently based
on the assumption," he said, "that
I had taken occasion to criticize the
officials and the work of the Public
Domain Commission. This was not
the case. I not only did not criticize
the commission but specifically com-
mended the state authorities for hav-
ing undertaken the most extensive
plan of reforestation yet contemplat-
ed by any of our states.
"The misunderstanding seems to
have arisen over my statements that
'the present losses from forest fires
are wholly unnecessary' andtthat 'the
cost of reducing fire losses to a neg-
ligible amount, are nominal.' These
were general statements," continued
the professor, "and are true of any
state or forest region as well as of
Michigan. To illustrate my conten-
tions, I stated that Icbelieved I could
make money on a contract to reduce
forest fire losses to a negligible
amount at a cost of two cents per acre
per year.
"This is not a criticism of the Pub-
lic Domain Commission or its officers.
If Secretary Carton of the commission
has available as much as two cents
per acre per year, he also could make
bad fires exceedingly rare in Michi-
gan. As a matter of fact, the commis-

'FORD NOMINATION
COSTLY BOUQUE
Writes Professor Edgar N. Durfee in
Letter to Nation Commenting'
on Editorial
"Will. A. SMITH A HUMILIATION"
That the overwhelming vote for
Henry Ford as candidate for president
which the people of Michigan cast
recently is to be considered only as
"an expensive bouquet" for him, and
a rebuke to William Alden Smith, the
only other candidate, is the purport of
a letter written by Prof. Edgar N.
Durfee of the Law School to the Na-
tion magazine, and published in this
week's issue.
Professor Durfee wrote the letter as
a comment upon an editorial appear-
ing in the Nation in its issue of April
20. The editorial suggested that "the
staggering vote for Henry Ford in
Michigan" mirrored the attitude of
the people of this state upon ques-
tions of foreign and military policy.
Professor Durfee says that the people
of this country pay more attention to
personalities than to policies, and that
the Ford nomination is a case in point.
There was no discussion of policies
before the nomination was made, only
"Homeric laughter at the absurdity
of the choice of presidential candi-
dates put before us, and few could
have thought that the policies of the
candidates really mattered."
"Henry Ford," says Professor Dur-
fee, "while regarded by the judicious
as entirely unfitted for the presidency,
is a man of a type which is dear to
our national heart, and he is more
widely known than any other man in
this country, save two or three. Wil-
liam Alden Smith, the only other can-
didate who was known outside of his
own back yard, has long been a hu-
miliation to most of the people of this
state, and many welcomed the oppor-
tunity of expressing their attitude to-
ward him."
SCHURZ CORRECTS DILY
WRITES CONCERNING ARTICLE
ON LATIN-AMERICAN HISTORY
COURSE
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
I wish to correct a misconception
liable to arise from an article pub-
lished in Wednesday's Daily under the
heading, "Give New History Course."
The article as published might give
the impression that the courses to be
given in Latin-American history were
to be financed by the Carnegie En-
dowment for International Concilia-
tion. That is true only of the two
courses announced for the summer
session this year. Also, these latter
will be conducted "in the interests of
peace' 'to the extent that enlighten-
ment on the history and life of other
peoples conduces to better relationst
with them. The courses scheduled for
the regular term to begin in October
will be given on the Hudson Founda-
tion, and will have no distinct char-
acter of propaganda.

sion has been directly responsible for
the general fire situation in Michigan
only since the last legislature. And,
as a matter of fact, the whole fire
situation in Michigan is today better
than it has ever been. And, as a mat-
ter of fact, the Public Domain Com-
mission has never had availableany-
thing like the funds to which its re-
sponsibilities entitled it. With the
year's fire season opening, it has to-
day available for forest protection, a
small fraction of a cent per acre per
year. With two cents per acre, it
would have something, like $200,000
a year. The commission should have
at least this much. It would be as good
an investment as the state could well
make. The work of the commission
in planning extensive reforestation of
the cut and burned-over lands is
also entitled to greatly increased funds
and I sincerely hope that this may be
evident to the next legislature.
"I regret having been quoted as an-
tagonistic to the work of the state
authorities but I guess I will have to
stand pat on the two cent per acre
declaration. At the same time, I in-
sist that this does not involve a criti-
cism of the Public Domain Commis-
sign. I was addressing pulp and
paper men from half a dozen states
and local conditions were not at all
at issue."
