Opposes Conferences with Europe to
Discover American
Chicago, 111., Nov. 27-(By A..)-
Senator Hiram W. Johnson of Califor-
nia, in 'his first public address since
he announced his candidacy for the
Republican presidenfal 'nomination,
sharply criticized the administration's
foreign policy and advocated the na-
tional bonus and a definite reduction
in taxes.
Attacks Administration
He also advocated a constitutional
amendment that would make child
labor laws and women's minimum
wage laws legal; suggested remedies
for farmers' troubles and then
launched into an attack of the ad-i
ministration's policy toward the Eur-
opean sitdation {and particularly
America's joining the reparations
conferences. "I do not protest against
an American policy toward Europe,"
said Senator Johnson, "I protest
against an American policy which
does not know what it is and which
seeks to discover itself, or to hide it-
self by first going into a conference,
with Europe.
"It is humiliating that we cannot
speak our minds save with the con-
sent of other nations, or in conjunc-
tion with them. If an administrationT
does not like an existing situation
abroad why not say so? Our position
in the world is such, our financial and'

Political Rioting
Quelled By Margot

Minnesotan Asserts World is Becom-
ing Suspicions of Parliament-
ary Government
New York, Nov. 27-(By AP.)-
Two new Senators from northwest-
ern states delivered addresses tonight
in New York. One, Henrik Shipstead,
farmer labor, Minnesota, attacked the
nodern "industrial king" as a war-
making despot, while the other, Bur-
ton Wheeler, democrat, Montana, as-
serted that the channels of publicity
in America have .been commercial-
ized. Both spoke at a dinner given.
In honor of Oswald Garrison Villard,
editor of The Nation.
Senator Shipstead said there is
growing suspicion of parliamentary
governments all over the world.
Industrial Monarchs Flayed
"Parliamentary governments came
to life and power, succeeding military
and political despotism," he said, "be-
cause these had dispossessed the pro-
ducers of wealth and rewarded the
destroyers of wealth. After des-
troying the old fashioned political and
military despots, we have substituted
for these a new despot, the indus-
trial king. This new king is a war-
maker, sacrificing the producer and
builder in order to reward the des-
troyer. He will use parliamentary
governments as his instrument if he
finds them pliant tools, but will dis-
card them for dictatorships if nec-
essary to accomplish his purpose."
Senator Wheeler told his audience
that in both the United States and in
Europe public opinion is largely "a
manufactured article-the output of
propoganda factories'.",
Asserting that the day of the great
personal editors-the Greeleys, the
Danas, the Storys, and the Watter-
sons-is -gone, Senator Wheeler de-
clared. that. with a few notable ex-
ceptions, the magazines land newspa-
pers are "either owned outright by
the great .industrial and financial in-
terests or controlled through the ad-
( vertising patronage."
Public Controls Remedy
Senator Wheeler declared the rem-
edy for what he described as the evils
that have befallen the press, lies with
the public itself.
"As long as the public expects to
get a daily paper for two cents or for
five cents," he continued, "there will
be no improvement in the character
of the press. The public will get just
what the interest that puts up the
money wants to give; nothing else.
If the public wants a newspaper or
magazine to give it the truth, it must
pay for it."

nmore in the nature of a hunger riot,
than anything else, fizzled soon after
7 o'clock this evening. The auth-
orities had been extremely anxious
because of the threats of the com-
munists, and when a crowd of sev-
eral thousand, mostly unemployed,
had assembled in the Lusttgarten, an
imposing array of police was at hand
to quell disturbances.
The crowd sang communist songs

Bacon, '26L, stimulated considerable'
comment by the members on the lack
of intellect apparent on the campus,
the value of a publicity director for
the University, and whether the tra-

Publicity unfavorable to the Uni-
versity and characterized as "con-
taining only a grain of truth," was
also brought to light. Several arti-
cles which have appeared quite re-
cently in Detroit papers illustrated
this deliberate misuse of facts.

meeting here last night.
When Mrs. Asquith's brother, H.
J. Tennant, Liberal candidate for the ,
Central Division, Glasgow, started to
address the meeting at the city hall, he,
was subjected to noisy interruptions
which rapidly worked into , general
rowdyism, until the meeting was in
an uproar. In the midst of the tur-
moil Mrs. Asquith mounted the plat-
form to her brother's side and an-
nounced, in stentorian tones:
"This gentleman is my brother. You
have a perfect right to come here but
no right to do what you are doing
now. Those who don't want to listen
can go."
Some of the hecklers went, but
most of the audience remained to hear
the candidate continue his speech
while his sister kept a watchful eye
on the crowd.

The theory that a. race of supermen

through heredity of improved mental
and physical characteristics acquired
during the lifetime of each generation
today was defended by Dr. Paul Kam-
merer, biologist of the University of
Vienna, who arrived on the Resolute.
The scientist claimed in support of
his theory, that he had succeeded in
teaching the offsprings of land frogs
to swim, developed eyes in blind
newts, and pre-determined the color
of salamanders.
He told a group of distinguished
scientists who met him at the pier
and who have arranged an American
tour for him, that he had found tan-

that characteristics acquired during
