VOL. XXXVII. No. 79 ,







Declares Britain is Influeneed By Mid-
dle Ages, While America Has No
Past To Influence Her
Putting at rest the rumor that the
recent general strike In England was
supported and instigated by Russia,
Kenneth Lindsay, unofficial represen-
tative of the British Labor party, in
his address "The Labor and the Gene-
ral Strike," which he delivered last
night in Natural Science auditorium,
showed that although the background
for the general striketwas there for
a long timne, the strike was a very
sudden outburst. The reason for the
strike, he pointed out was, "Because
the political machinery of the day
wasn't functioning right."
Before getting to the exact subject
matter of his talk, Mr. Lindsay gave
a short outline of the econonic his-
tory of England, particularly of the
Labor movement.. In doing this he
constantly compared the conditions of
his homd country with the United
States. At present, lie stated, 88 per
cent of English children discontinue
their education before or at the age of
14 and only one in a 1,000 go a a uni-
versity; in this country, on the other
hand 30 per cent do not remain in
school after they are 14, while one in
ever 100 reach universities. Another
point that he brought out, was that
England is heavily influenced by past
history and the middle ages wherea
the United States has never had a
"middle ages" and at present is eco-
nomically at the station that England
was in 1880. Just as the "industial
revolution" was first carried on in
England so have the bad effects first
become evident there.
Trouble Lies In Suppression {
The main trouble lies in the fact
that the basic industries are -sup-
pressed while the industries that sup-
1y luxuries are booming, he declared.
ornparatively recent economic deve-
lopments which England could not
help as electricity taking the place
of coal and the decrease in the vol-
ume of the trade in the world have
materially contributed to the decay-
ing of the basic industries. Land is
now changing hands in England that
has been in the same possession since
the Norman invasion, he stated -in
showing the despondent conditions of
The most difficult things to, get in
England today are food, shelter and
clothing, he said, and this was the
reason for the genereal strike. It is
almost impossible for children of la-
borers to get away from the trade of
their fathers, he pointed out, and
especially is this true of South Wales
where the population has been made
up of miners for centuries. In this
connection, he showed that only three
per cent of the children of unskilled
laborers ever receive secondary edu-
Citicises Dean IngeI
Mr. Lindsay criticised Dean' Inge
and H. G. Wells fo not being ac-
quainted with the actual facts of Eng-
lish conditions, and said that those
two imen were unable to feel the
pulse of the comman people of Eng-
land from their writing degks in the
cloister and on the Riviera.
In relation to general strikes, Mr.
Lindsay explained that they can only
have three purposes, to get rid of
some odious person, as a grand get-~
sure to show strength, or, as a step

toward the taking over of powers. In-
asmuh as the recent strike achieved
none of these ends it was a filure.
What it attempted, was to bring in-
dustrial pressure on a olitical govern-
ment, Mr. Lindsay stated.
Contrary to the general belief, there
wereseveral beneficial results of the
strike, including the promotion of
good fellowship and the establish-
mnt of public concerts, he declared.!
The platform of the Labor party
is more education and compulsory ed-
ucation up to the age of 16, he de-
clared. Admitting that the path to-
word the solving of the probleml
would not be an easy one, Mr. Lindsay
said that it would have to follow a
courjc of national improvements,;
which must include a reversal of for?
cign policy, and the increase of in-
come and inheritance taxes. These
thingk he showed would simulate the
prcddLt on of the things that the
people want.
In closing his talk Mr. Lindsay ad-
vised this country, "For Heaven'sl

Arnold Daly, Internationally Famous
Actor, Loses Life In Fire In New York

(By !Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Jan. 13.-Arnold Daly,
who rose from obscurity as an office
boy to international fame as an actor,
lost his life in a fire today. The flames
trapped him in his apartment in West
51st street, on the fringe of Broad-C
way, where he had recived the plaud-
its of thousands and only a few blocks
from the site of the old Herald Square
theater, where he made his New York
debut in 1895.
Firemen who hacked their way into
Daly's fourth floor quarters found his
burned body lying beside an arm chair
in which he had been seen a short
time before reading a book.
Although known to thousands, Daly
could not be identified for severalj
hours; the face that had recorded a
multitude of real and simulated emo-

tions was a charred mass. Absolute
identification was made by two bun-
ions, known to Frank Whitcomb, his
attorney, but not to others viewing
the body.
The fire in which Daly died was fea-
tured by thrilling rescues by firemen,
who carried to safety two women who
lived on the fourth floor. A father
and mother, residing on the fifth floor,E
carried three children to safety over
The fire began in the basement and
swept up the stairway, cutting off1
escape. . Daly's, window was found
open and firemen believe he had tried
to climb out of it when flames cut
off the stairway. Mr. Daly lived alone,
his daughter Blythe Daly being on a
tour. He was divorced from his wife,
who was Miss Mary Blythe, of Los
Angeles, and now Mrs. Frank Craven.

The rise of the former Kansas City

'At 12, she was soloist in a church

Albaladejo To Talk
On "Reincarnation"
Prof. Jose M. Albaladejo, of the'
Modern Language department of the
engineering school, will discuss "Re-
incarnation" in a public lecture, at
eight o'clock tonightTin the audito-
rium of Lane hall. This talk is one
'of a series of discussions held under
the auspices of the Ann Arbor lodge
of the American Theosophical Society.
When asked to define his views upon
reincarnation, which he will set forth
tonight, Professor Albaladejo stated
that he could do no better than to
quote from Sir Oliver Lodge's "Life
and Matter" in which the English
scientist, answering Haekel's "Riddle
of the Universe" defines his conception
of life.
The view set forth by Sir Oliver
Lodge quoting his work is that life is
"dependent on matter for its pheno-
menal appearance-for its manifesta-
tion to us here and now, and for all
its terrestrial activities; but other-
wise I conceive that it is independent,
that its essential existence is continu-
ous and permanent though its inter-
actions with matter are discontinu-
ous and temporary; and I conjecture
that it is subject to a law of evolu-
'tion-that a linear advance is open to
it-whether it be in its phenomenal
or in its occult state."

WASHINGTON, Jan. 13.-Inaugara-
tion of a campaign of peace with the'
abolition of the idea of force in the
dealings of the United States with
Central American countries was urged
in the Senate today by Senator Borah,
Republican, idiho, chairman of the
foreign relations committee.
As the first step in that direction,
he proposed a special election to per-
mit the people of Nicaragua to choose
their own president and the submis-
sion to arbitration of the controversy
with Mexico over its land laws.
With these suggestions, the Idaho
senator concluded in characteristical-
ly dramatic fashion an attack of an
hour and a half on the administration's
policy in dealing with the Nicaraguan
situation and in recognizing the Adolfo
Diaz government which he contended
was set up illegally.
"Inaugurate a campaign of peace,"
thundered Senator Borah, "abolisl
the idea of force; try friendly rela-
tions; seek to establish amity; seek
to get in touch with the masses, with
the people themselves, and we can
establish a policy in Central America
which will provide our interests and
respect our rights and whichwill do
that which we are entitled to do--re-
ceive special considration from those
Senate Pays Close Attention
While Senator Borah unfolded his
views both of the situation in Nicara-
gua and of the administration's policy,
practically every member of the Sen-
ate now in Washington was in his seat
and gave his remarks the closest at-
Many members of the House crowd-
ed the floor of the Senate and the gal-
leries were filled. There were few in-
terruptions from other Senators, a
rather unusual occurrence in Senate
discussions, particularly of 'a sub-
ject foremost in the public mind.
The address of the foreign relations
committee chairman, however, start-
ed a Senate debate which brought out
both sides of the controversy, includ-
ing a general defense of the admitis-
tration by Senator Lenroot, of Wiscon-
sin, a Republican member of the for-
eign relations, committee.
Elsewhere, too, the day's events saw
the Mexican-Nicaraguan imbroglio
developing in several directions.
The House foreign affairs commit-
tee, after another fruitless debat,
voted by a majority of one not 'to call
Secretary Kellogg before it, and then
suspended its sessions indefinitely.
Destroyers Ordered South
Two more American destroyers
were ordered to Nicaraglan waters,
but the navy department said they
would replace two already there.
Further outbreaks of anti-American
sentiment in Mexico brought no out-
ward yeaction from the State depart-
nient, beyond a denial of the recur-
ring report that the government is
considering withdrawal of Ambassa-
dor Sheffield.
In another statement, the depart-
met donfirmed that it had consider-
ed designating a former marine of-
ficer to organize the Nicaraguan don-
stabulary but said that his duties
x1ould not make himni a part of the
Nicaraguan army.
A ray of hope for better times in the
Central American trouble zone was
seen in an effort of the president of
Costa Rica to mediate between the
Nicaraguan factions. The state de-
partment has approved its move and
hopes for its success, but hs no ad-
vice of the progress made.
Senator Borah's address on the Mex-
ican-Nicaraguan situation had been
long awaitedl. He had maintained
silence in accordance with a tacit un-
derstanding with the administration
that his views should be withheld un-
til after the appearance yesterday of
Secretary Kellogg before the Senate
foreign relations committee to ampi-
fy the- administration statement as
given to the Congress and the country
Monday by President Coolidge.
