College Men As Leaders of

"Not merely hand in hand with the
nations of the world, fighting for the
preservation of peace, but leading
them, that is what I look forward to,"
asserted Newton D. Baker, ardent sup-
porterof the League of Nations, with
aronsrp t"fhtP darngling foreign re-

snowe tneir appreciaion of the pro-
duction by applause which brought

The play deals with the voyage of
eight people on a tiny ocean liner
which is making the journey between:
life and death. The method of hand-

Announce Program for Today's Ses-
slon of Schoolmasters' Club
Convention
Students of the University will join
members of the Michi4an School-,
masters' club, who are holding their
annual convention this week-end, to
hear Dr. Alexander Meiklejohn, ex-
president of Amherst college, speak
on "Thinking in a Democracy," at a

"I am heartily in favor of the pro-
posed Page School of International
Relations, and see great possibilities
in it,' said the Hon. Newton D. Baker,
former secretary of war, in a hurried
interview following his lecture in Hill
auditorium last night.
"This new school should prove a
great training ground for our, future
diplomats, and as such will be an ex-,
tremely valuable institution" contin-
ued the man who had charge of the
mobilization of our armies during the
feverish days of 1916-18.
A fund of $1,000,000 is now being
raised to endow a school of interna-
tional relations in memory of the latej
Walter Hines Page, war-time ambass-
ador to the court of St. Jam'es, at
Johns Hopkins university. This school
is to be devoted to post-graduate re-
search in the fields of world affairs.
Mr. Baker is especially attracted by
the plans of the committee in charge
of the foundation of this school, who
aim: to make the scope of this institu-

tion wider than any course of study
or combination of courses now avail-
able in any univresity. The school, as
planned, will include not only inter-
national law and history, but unique
studies in the fundamental elements
of international relationships, such as
the effects of different racial psycho-
logies, variations in national economic
structure and aims, the influence of
the geographical pecularities of mod-
ern states, and their political organ-
ization.
Mr. Baker's whole-hearted approval
of the project is even more readily
understood when we understand that
the school will aim not only to train
men in the arts of diplomacy, but will
have what might be called an even
deeper purpose, that of the study of
the modern world, the analysis of
the underlying causes of friction be-
tween nations, ahd the scrutiny of the
common bonds between tiem pthat
tend to keep relations friendly and
stable.R

ine sections held sessions, which
ere presided over by men of the
niversity faculty. All the meetings
ere well attended both by members
f the society and by outsiders.
Addressing members of the anthro-
ology section, Prof. Harley H. Bart-
ett of the botany department spoke
pon "The Heredity of Head Form."
le has been gathering data relative
o the shapes and sizes of the heads
f various professors and their fami-
ies, and has come to the conclusion
hat there is no relation between head
orm, pigmentation or body form.
rom a study of the average char-
cteristics of each race he asserted
hat so called "racial types" may be
'ound-.
Professor Bartlett alsokstated that
fevery family would keep a record
f the shapes and sizes of heads, sci-
ntists would be able to devleop a
ormula for tracing ancestral lines.
While head forms are widely studied
it thepresent time, it Is only to de-
ermine mass division, he said.
Paper Presented
In a paper on the traditions, cus-
oms, and magic of the Australian na-
ive, E. F. Greenman, '23, said that
hese people are almost paleolithic,
nd that they are lower in intelli-
ence than the African bushman. One
f their peculiar customs is for a na-
ive who is suffering from headache
o steal his wife's metal bands and
lace them upon his head. When
he pain is gone he will throw them
way so tha't his wife will not wear
hem again and contract the headache
ierself.
At the meetings of the botany sec-
ion yesterday afternoon 12 papers
were presented, the majority of which
ealt with types of fungi. Yesterday
norning the botany section and zo-
logy section held a joint meeting,
t which nine papers were delivered,
ealing with heredity and evolution.
The geology section was honored
with several papers by Frank B. Tay-
or of the United States geological
urvey at Fort Wayne, Indiana. In
one of these, he gave a preliminary
statement on the relation of reces-
sional moraines to Niagara Falls.
Dean E. IH. Kraus of the Summer
session and the mineralogy depart-
ment, and Prof. W. H. Hobbs also
presented papers.
Discusses History
At the meeting of the section of his-
tory and political science, Banjamin
W. Wheeler of the history department
discussed the political intrigues be-
tween the states of Navarre, Aragon,
Portugal, Leon, and Castile during the
period when the Christians were at-
tempting to drive the Moslem insur-
gents out of Spain. Nelson V. Russell
of the history department presented .
an argument, and evidence, which
would condemn the assertion that the
British practiced cruelty during the
colonial period, and also asserted that
Englishmen were not guilty of offer-,
ing "scalp money." He pointed to
many incidents of cruelty by the col-
onists and stated that Americans had
not always been so kind-hearted as
icy were painted to be.
Al paper was presented et the meet-
ing of the section of language and
literature by Henry D. Wild of the
English department upon "Scholar-
ahip and the National Drift in Ameri-
can Literature." He discussed the
trend of American literature since the
colonizing of the eastern coast,
through the period of westward ex-
pansion, and up to the present day.
He also outlined the problems and
obstacles attached to the study of lit-
-rature and the requisites for a stu-
dent of this subject.
Other Papers
Stating that language is fundament-
ally a muscular process, Prof. Clar-
ence Meader of the Latin department
remarked that study of all linguistics

may be referred to chemlical action.
Logical methods of language study
were dominant until the last quarter
of the nineteenth century, when they
were surplanted by a psychological
approach. "Psychological 'study of
linguistics came with the advance of
psychology which was parallel with
the growth of physiology," he said.
