Stressing the importance of ob-
serving the judgments offered by
foreigners of American literary
works, Prof. Howard Mum ferd
Jones, of the English department,
yesterday in a radio address dis-
cussed three books dealing with the
part America has come to play in
The three books Professor Jones
spoke on were "Conquest," by John
Carter; "America Looks Abroad,"
by Paul M. Mazur; and "America
Comes of Age," translated from the
French of Andre Siegfried. All these
books were written before the in-
Depict America's Growth.
The first two books picture the
expansion of an American indus-
t#ial empire as something quite
different from the expansion of the
British empire, the difference aris-
ing from the fact that American
expansion does not involve the mili-
tary conquest of new territories, it
was pointed out.
"Whether these men are right in
this interpretation, we shall have
to leave to the economic and poli-
tical experts to say," said Professor
Jones, "but the point for us is this:
that if the impact of the huge
American industrial development
upon other imperialistic nations
had not been profoundly felt, it is
just possible that the Siegfried
book would not have been written."
Praises Siegfried's Book.
Professor Jones praised "America
Comes of Age" as the most pene-
trating study written by a foreigner
about the United States in the
"I am inclined to think this be-
cause M. Siegfried really tried to
find out the facts. As you know,"
he said, "most Europeans who come
to America think they have seen
the United States, when all they
have seen is New York and Chicago,
and what they can see out of the
car window as the train rushes
them from one city to another."
But M. Siegfried, he said, is a
distinguished economist, a profes-
sor in the School of Social Sciences
in Paris; he has visited the United
States some six or seven times; he
has been in almost every state in
the Union, and he has talked with
all sorts and conditions of people.

Police Chief Advocates Unify
of Fare Systems.
Questioned yesterday concerning
his opinion regarding practiablel
solution of the taxicab situation in
Ann Arbor, Thomas O'Brien, chief
of police, indicated that he was
firmly in favor of establishing the
taximeter system as universal.
"The only solution to the problem
which would bring the taxis under
the control of the police would be
to force all the cabs to use meters,"
he said. "At present, with the cabs
legally operating under two dis-
tinct fare systems, there is no way
for the police to check up on them.
We realize that the situation is bad,
but at present we are forced to relyI
on complaints of passengers. The
difficulty is that in spite of contin-
ual dissatisfaction very few passen-
gers take the trouble to report to
us the license numbers of cab driv-
ers who are violating the law."

Gayle Chaffin, '31SM, manager of

been rather slow in coming in so
far," Chaffin said, 'it is expected

ly increase." Circulars describing
