(By Associated Press)
Washington, Jan. 20.-Ship builders,
shipping men and exporters from over
the country gathered here today for
a two-day discussion of problems fac-
ing the American merchant marine
with a view to recommending perma-
nent policies to Congress and the ship-
ping board. They attended the annual
convention of the National Merchant
Marine association, of which Senator
Ransdell, of Louisiana, is president.
Subjects assigned various speakers
and listed for,,general discussions in-
cluded repeal of the Pamana Canal
tolls affecting American vessels; the
prices at which government vessels
shofld be sold; establishment of pref-
erential railroad rates on exports and
imports in American ships; revision of
marine insurance laws; abrogation of
commercial treaties and the encour-
agement of the use of American ships
by exporters and importers.
Speakers of the opening session in-
cluded Chairman Jones, of the Senate
Commerce committee; Rear Admiral
Benson, chairman of the shipping
board, and Frank C. Munson, president
of the Munson Steamship line. -Sena-
tor Jones' subject was the purpose of
the Merchant Marine Act and the neeq
for full support from thepeopfe of th
country, while Chairman Benson dis-
cussed the general shipping situation
from the standpoint of the shipping
President Ransdell outlined the gen-E
eral purposes of the meeting in his1
address opening the convention, and1
Mr. Munson had taken as his topic,
"How Can the United States Improve
Its Present Position on the Seas?" i
The first general discussion followed
the delivery of the prepared addresses.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
I am very much surprised to read in'
The Daily of January 16, the statement'
given out by the Senate Committee on
Student Affairs. The decision for the
abolishment of the Junior Hop was up
to them and I know nothing about the
grounds for their reasons but in that
statement the sentence that comes with
a body blow in that "Our student life is
riddled with the vicious type of conduct
that ruined the Hop."
This must mean one of two things,
either that the student body has de-
generated to a standard which is un-
thinkable by the alumni or else that
the committee has offered an unwar-
ranted insult to the student body.
If it is the first, the committee
should open4evidence and proof; and
if it is the second, the student body
should be offered an apology.
Such a statement coming directly
from the faculty will cause the alumni
to stop and reflect on the advisability
of talking Michigan to prospective
high school men. Certainly parents,
with such a statement from persons
who are supposed to be in touch with
student life before them, will hesitate
before they send their sfn or daughter
The abolishment of the Junior Hop
and its reasons are to my mind noth-
ing compared to the blanket arraign-
ment of Michigan students. The
alumni will not believe that Michigan
students have so far lost sight of
Michigan ideals as to make them
guilty of the crime that the committee
has attempted to fix on them. Too
many of the present students are vet-
erans of the recent war and their rec-
ords absolve them from the sweeping
statement that the committee has
It is one of two things: a matter of
proof or apology, and the sooner the
full truth is brought out the better.

ON SOCIAL WORK
Extension of sociology courses in
both theory and field work is being
advocated by Prof. A. E. Wood of the
sociology department. According to
Professor Wood the need for trained
social service workers is becoming
more and more felt in Michigan. Re-
cently this need was expressed in a
meeting of representatives of social
agencies of Detroit, Grand Rapids,
Saginaw, and other cities.
The professor laid stress on the
need for more practical works "At
present," he said, "the courts, relief
agencies and schools must depend on
any workers obtainable. Often these
men and women, though interested,
are not well-trained. Practical work
will help to overcome this drawback."
