"Michigan Night," the tenth of the
regular radio programs of the Uni-
versity, was broadcast last night over
stations WJR, the Jewett Radio and
Phonograph company of Pontiac, and
WCX, the Detroit Free Press. Last
night's program consisted of four dis-

Prof. Arthur H. Blanchard of the
engineering college, who will be one
of the representatives of the United
States at the International Road con-
ference to be held next September, in

provement, a World Problem." Pro-
fessor Blanchard spoke of the work
of the conference and the highway
problems which will probably be dis-
cussed at this.year's meeting.
"Twenty million motor vehicles will
be in use in the United States during
1926," he stated. "The yearly increase
in the number of vehicles and chang-
es in transportation requirements will
create new problems in highway im-
provement. To efficiently solve these
problems will require comprehensive
research, and a constat ninterchange
of thought among engineers and
others in this field."
Prof. Harley H. Bartlett of the bot-
any department, spoke on "Rubber."

and the operation of the plantations.

newspapers against the flood of criti-
cism which they receive from all sides.
He described the tremendous amount
,of work done by the papers in the
space of a few hours, showing that
mistakes are certain to occur in the
"If criticism be a form of flattery,
then the American newspaper should
stand unrivalled In pride of calling,
for everybody, more or less, seems w
have taken occasion to exercise his
vocabulary in condemning it," Profes-
sor Brumm said.
The fourth radio talk of the pro-
gram was given by Maj. Deinold Mel-
berg, who is command of the Re-
serve Officers Training corps of the
University. In his talk, he answered
the critics of military training in the

tages offered to students enrolled in
the courses other than merely the
military training.

Sixth President Stated United States
Was Cautiously iniependent Of
European Entanglements
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, March 16.-Efforts to in-
duce America to join the World court
show history repeatin.g itself for'
similar efforts were made a century
ago. Sen. Henrik Shipstead, of Min-
nesota, told the Cook county Repub-
lican centTal committee tonight.
One hundred years ago when the
idea of political democracy was chal-
lenging the old order of political
autocracy, he said, Europe entered in-
to a series of treaties finally termi-,
nating in the "holy league of peace"
and the congress of Aix-la-Chapelle,
which the United States was asked to{
join. In July, 1820, John Quincy
Adams, in instructions to the Ameri-
can anbassador to St. Petersburg,
said regardinsg the league of peace:
"The political system of the United
States is essentially extra-European.
To stand in firm and cautious inde-
pendence of all entanglements in thej
European system has been a cardi-
nal point of their policy from the peace
of 1783 to this day.
"Yet in proportion as the import- 1
ance of the United States, as one of
the members of the general society of
civilized nations, increases in the f
eyes of the others, the difficulties of
maintaining this system and the
temptations to depart from it increase.
and multiply."
This pronouncement was followed
by enunciation of the Monroe Doc-
trine, said Senator Shipstead, and

WASHINGTON, March 16.-The ad-,
ministration's b ll to create a bureau
of prohibition ix the treasury depart-
ment, bearing the approval of the
anti-Saloon Leakue and prohibition
leaders generally, was approved to-
day by the House ways and means
The measure is the first proposed'
major change in the prohibition law
to be reported out of committee since
passage of the Volstead act. It will
receive the legislative right of way
and be taken up ih the House in the
near future.
While it is designed to strengthen
the prohibition !enforcement- machin-
ery, its consideration will at least
open the flood gates of general prohi-
bition debate, amid may serve as the
vehicle by which wet members can
get before the Huse, in the forms of
amendments, the r many and varied
proposals for 1 teralization of the
general prohibiti n law. Heretofore
these proposals lave been smothered
in committee.
The bill was i troduced by Chair-
man Green of the ways and means
committee. In a dition to creating al
prohibition burea*, it would set up in
the treasury dep4rtment a bureau of
customs, and the }two units would be
administered 'by commissio'ners ap-
pointed by the secretary of the treas-
ury at salaries of $8,000 a year. The
personnel of both bureaus, excepting;
the higher officials, would be suject
to the civil service regulations.
During hearings by the committee,
Assistant Secretary Andrews, in,
charge of prohibition enforcement,
endorsed the bill providing a much-
needed realignment of enforcement
