Feeble-minded, Insane, An4 Students
Must Not Be Slighted In State
Support, Speaker Declares
(Special to The Daily)
DETROIT, April 6, -Commenting
on Gov. Fred W. Green's statement!
concerning the "lesson" to he learned
from the $5,000,000 deficit discovered
in the funds of the state, President
Clarence Cook Little asked "To whom
must it be a lesson" in his address
to the Detroit Union League club here
"We have just heard a statement
from the Governor to the effect that
there seems to be some $5,000,000 to
be made up in the general funds of
the state, Such a situation provides
an interesting test as to who is going
to make up the difference. There is
obviously no way inwhich those pri-
marily responsible for the deficit can
be made to reimburse the public
funds, and theburden therefore shifts
to a different grup-the citizens and
taxpayers of the state," Dr. Little
state d.
"First, let us ask whether it should
be a lesson to our sick and feeble-
minded and insane. Should we expect
them-situated as they are in public
institutions to bear the brunt of mak-
ing up the deficit! Are they respon-
sible for the present situation? Cer-
tainly not! We realie that the nor-
mal, healthyt, economiily produc-j
tive and effective citizen must bear
the burden of care and support of
such individuals," continued r.
He further stated that the institu-
tional inmates must be considered
as economic liablities-which year
after year %ust be covered by public
taxation. Comparing the amount of
appropriations necessary for these
institutions with the amount asked for
from local communities the amount is
"tiny," he said.
"But if this amount is not to be met
by our sick and feeblemindd, is it to
be paid for by our schools and col-
leges? Should we expect our young,
growing, immature boys and girls to,
pay for the deficit? Certainly not'
We recognize that such young peo-
ple are public wards and that they
must remain so until trained to carry
their share ofthe burdens o govern-
ment and taxation. If we weaken in
even one way the process of their
training, tey will have weaker in-
tellectual backs to bear the weight of
future public service to the State,"
Dr. Little, believes.
Discussing tendencies of modern
citizens to resent enlarging taxes for
public service, President Little said,
"When the nuber of students in-
crease the need for more money in-
creases and taxes must be raised. It
appears to be the case in Michigan
as in some other states that in the
minds of short sighted citizens no
greater crime exists than to request
able-bodied adult citizens to increase
the amount of money they spend for
the care of the unfortunate and for
the education of our best youth."
In concluding his address, Dr. Lit-
tle asked, "How can we expect our
yong people to have an increased
sense of public service when we find
the grown-ups who are supposed to
be their friends, counsellors and

guides, wailing at the prospect of be-
ing asked for more money to be spent
for the benefit of youth."

WASHINGTON ADO VSEDFelicitations On Anniversary Of Entry
Into War Exchanged By Two Presidents


a liberal education was given yester-!
day by Prof. Preston W. Slosson, off
the history department, and Prof. John
L. Brumm of the journalism depart-
"The present contest reaches only
a small number of students, Profes-
sor Slosson stated. "Less than 30
took the test given last year, \ and
probably a similar number will take!
part in this year's contest. The bene-s
fits would be greatly increased if a
larger number of students were par-1
"Most students excuse their lack of
knowledge of current events on the
ground that so muchaof their time is
spent on textbooks, and that in con-
sequence they are not able to read
the papers. That is not the right1
attitude. World affairs should be as
much a part of the studies of col-
lege students as their text-books.
"The committee has not as yet be-
gun the planning of this year's con-
test, concluded Professor Slosson,
"but it will -probably be similar to
the one conducted here last spring.
The winner will be expected to take
part in the national contest sponsored 1
by the New York Times."
Professor Brumm, a member of the
current events committee this year,
declared when interviewed that hisj
last year's experience on the com-
mittee had taught him that there was
an urgent need to interest students1
in current events.
"It was found that students pre-

academic examination," Professor!
Brumm continued. "They obtained
magazines and newspapers pertain-
ing to the subject, compiled lists of
prominent persons and events of sig-
nificance in the political, industrial,
and social world, and committed them
to memory."
"A much broader purpose would
have been served if the whole cam-
pus could have been made to take
an interest in current events by
means of informal tests of an in-
formal sort, conducted in the various
classrooms. From these tests, ex-
tending over a period of months, in-
structors could select a number who
evinced a lively interest. Those
could be announced as eligible for
the examination."
Professor Brumm explained that
under the present arrangement the
few, who because of the peculiar na-
ture of their university work, could,
enter the contest, have a specializedI
interest; whereas, if every class
could devote five or ten minutes of
its time to what is taking place in the
world every day, the contest wouldj
serve a greater interest.-
"This would stimulate a more in-
telligent reading of the newspapers
and summaries such as Time and the
Literary Digest," Professor Brumm;
stated. "Our education is out of
books-unrelated to present day life.
Some device for applying social and
political theory to current problems
would certainly improve our educa-
tional practice.

(MY Associated Press),
WASHINGTON, April .-Raids by
Chinese authorities at Peking on the!
Russian embassy within the dipomatic
compound in search of evidence of
pro-Cantonese activities served today
to center attention in Washington on
the new development of the Chinese
No official report in regard to the
raid had reached the state department
from Minister MacMurray at a late
hour, but there is little doubt in off-i
cial circles that, this violation of the
diplomatic sanctity of the embassy
affords the Moscow government cause
for protest and that it conceivably
could be an overt act which might re-
sult in drastic action by the Sovietj
government by way of reprisal.
Chinese Rights Are Doubtful
References in press accounts that
authorization for the raid was ob-
tained from the Peking diplomatic
