NOTED GERMAN PHILOSOPHER
HAS WRITTEN SEVERAL
WELL-KNOWN BOOKS
IS HERE ONSECOND TOUR,
Ideas Of Famed Thinker Have Created
Much Discussion Wherever He
Has Appeared As Speaker
Count Hermann Keyserling, fore-
most German philosopher and author
of "The Travel Diariy of a Philosoph-
er," "The Book of Marriage," and "Thef
World in the Making," will deliver a
lecture at 8 o'clock Thursday night
in Hill auditorium under the auspices
of a faculty-student committee. Tick-
ets are on sale at $1 and 50c for
main floor and balcony respectively..
Prof. Robert M. Wenley of the de-
partment of philosophy, and one of
the leading philosophers of the United
States, will introduce Count Keyser-
ling. The subject of the lecture has
not yet been announced by the com-
mittee in chai'ge.
Is On Second Tour
Count Keyserling, rated by many as
the foremost thinker of the world, is
now on his' second tour of the United
States, and his itinerary has been
planned to include most of the leading
cities and educational centers of the
United States. His first tour of the1
United States, in 1919, was the basis'
for his chapters on this country which
appear in his famous diary.
On his tour of this country Count
Keyserling has been followed by a
storm of protest and agreement as he
proceeds from place to place to make
appearances. Ais ideas , have taken
their place on the first pages of the
newspapers of the country and have
given rise to column after column o
discussion of the ideas that he hasI
expressed and the judgments he has
made of Americans, of modes of
thought, of the prospects of the fu-
ture, and all of the other problems
with which his flexible mind copes.
Accounts For Dissatisfaction With Life
Speaking before a student -audience'
at the University of Wisconsin Count
Keyserling asserted that man, having
subjugated nature and realized that
he was a spiritual being, he is now in
the midst of a strange dissatisfaction,i
which accounts for the great unrest
that has grown up in the world.
"Man is no longer a part of na-
ture," Count Keyserling said; "he is
and religions which presuppose a dif-
ferent relationship must die a natural
death." In many respects, he said, the
present era is inferior to others. The
Chinese and Indian philosophies,'and
the Christianity of the middle ages,
gave a greater meaning to life-men
are now rated for what they can;
achieve, not for what they are, and life
is emptier than it was.

HOPE TO REPAIR PLANE
Fitzmuurice, Von Hoenfeld, and Koehl
Are Expectcd to Fly Together
In Bremen To New York

(By Associated Press)
Three members of the crew of the
Junker monoplane, Bremen, who
braved together the dangers of a west-
ward flight across the North Atlantic,
were united today, two Germans
standing by their disabled ship on
Greenly island and an Irishman con-
tinuing his journey in another plane.
The Bremen left Ireland last Thurs-
day morning and Friday afternoon
while thousands were waiting to wel-
come them in New York, the airmer
were forced down on the little is-
land locked in ice between Labrador
and Newfoundland.
Sunday two pilots and a mechanic
forced a hazardous way to the island
from the mainland. Yesterday on(
of those pilots, "Duke" Schiller, flew
away with Capt. James Fitzmaurice,
co-pilot of the Bremen, taking him
for the night to Natashquan, on the
north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawr-
ence.
Schiller's companion pilot, Dr.
Louis Cuisinier and his mechanic
stayed on Greenly island to give what
help they could to Baron von Hoen-
feld, sponsor of the Bremen flight, and
Capt. Herman Koehl, the Bremen's
pilot.
From Natashquan it was believed
Schiller and Fitzmaurice would fly on
to Quebec and then down to New
York. Some, however, thought that
the Irish member of the crew would
stay in Canada until his German com-
panions were ready to continue in
their own plane or another, so that all
uright reach New York, their original
destination, together.
Relief Plans Continued
Relief plans for the Bremen con-
tinued during the (lay, another Can-
adian transcontinental airway plane
similar to the one Schiller and Cuisin-
ier flew, was at Seven islands, to they
south of Natashquan, ready to make
the flight to Greenly island today if it
was decided that any assistance
could be given.
A sister ship of the Bremen's, the
junker F-13, left New York yesterday
for Montreal and was to establish a
relief base either there or at Que-
bec today. The plane was flown
by Fred Melchior, Junker expert who
was accompanied by Hertha and Er-
hardt Junker, daughter and son o"
the manufacturer.
It was planned to strip the F-13 of
any parts needed by the Bremen and
ship them into Greenly island with

Brilliant hurling . by Freddie As-
beck, backed up by satisfactory work
with the stick by Coach Ray Fisher's
proteges, made an auspicious start for
the Wolverine nine in its premier
game of the 1928 chase after the Big
Ten baseball title. The net result ,of
all this was to dismiss the North-
westernWildcats with two hits and a
7-1 defeat yesterday afternoon at;
Ferry field.
So 'masterful was the work of
Michigan's veteran junior twirler that
the Wildcats were at no time other
than tame. Asbeck pitched perfect
ball for eight innings, not a Purple
batter even coming close to a sight of
first base until Morse's bobble on a
grounder which gave Prang, visiting
keystone sacker, a life after two were
out in the next to the last frame. The
next man went out easily however.
Asbeck bore down af l the way de-
spite the cold weather which was
more suited to spring grid practice
and the production of sore arms than
the national pastime, making the per-
formance all the more noteworthy.
Thirteen strikeout's were chalked u'
on the Wildcats, Captain Johnsos, the
Purple clean-up man whiffing on each
of his three trips to the plate. The
visitors were able to get the horse-
hide out of the infield only five times
during the game. Asbeck did not s-
sue a base on balls.
1 The strikeout, one-two-thre order
had become almostmonotonous when
Izard, eighth in the batting ordr,
opened the ninth by singling sharply
to the right. Palmer who rxeplacre
Hellerman in the boxfor Northwest-
ern in the seventh followed with a
double down the third base line which
sent Izard across the plate to spoil
shutout hapes. The next three men,
however, reverted to form and went
out one-two-three.
Hellerman, Northwestern pitcher,
who first came to light in collegate
circles as a star on M\ichigan's yearl-
ing team two or three years ago, was
the startlin'g choice of Coach Maurice.
Kent. While not batted out of the
lot or anything like that, Hellerman's
deliberate southpaw'slants found a
ready reception awaiting them, the
Wolverines clipping his offerings for
seven hits, well bunched for five runs.
Although 'setting the Maize and
Blue down in order in the first in-
ning, Red Corriden proved his right
to the clean-up post by cracking out a
double. Oosterbaan fol.lowed Immed-
iately with a single and Weintraub
came through with a sacrifice hit. Mc-
Afee, a right fielder when not o the
mound, singled and Michigan had a
2-0 lead.
The third inning found a renewal
: of Wolverine activities. Nebelung
drew a base on balls, the second off
Hellerman, and raced on to second
when the ball got away from Carey,
Purple catcher. McCoy popped a fly
to third but Corriden's second hit sent
Nebelung in with the third Michigan
tally.
After a couple of peaceful frames,
Oosterbaan singled and Weintraub got
i a life on an error-both scoring
through Morse's sacrifice and As-
beck's single.

cited the greatest amount of contro-
versey and dissension in private andt
public discussion and in the newspa-
pers-is his belief that the man who
aspires to be a genius must, never;
marry. It is his belief that marriage
overwhelmingly defeats all individual-
ity in a man and makes his thoughts i
serfs to those of his wife. "During1
800 years of the world's history,"
Count Keyserling says, no man ofi
spirit ever married. He entered a mon-1
astery instead. Genius is not born of
genius; it is an accident." Women
were praised by Keyserling as rulers
and builders of the destinies of the!
world, but lie bitterly denounced them
as parasites of man's intelligence.t
