NEW YORK, April 24.-(P)- Pub-

uyivormon rFrank, 3.s4
Prospects for the college grad-
uate in business during the next 10
years will be the greatest since pre-
war days, Charles McKenna Lynch,
president of the Pittsburgh Stock
exchange and member of the in-
vestment firm of Moore, Leonard &
Lynch, declared last week in an
interview for The Daily.
"Because of the stirring times of
the last 15 years, the present lead-
ers in the economic field are
becoming physically exhausted,"
Lynch explained.

The plane maker's comment on
the flight of Iear Admiral Richard
E. Byrd, particularly the trans-At-
lantic flight which ended in the
waters off the French coast, arous-
ed chief interest.
AdmiralByrd,who was lecturing
in the middle west, declined to dis-
cuss the book, but one of his com-
panions on the flight to France,
Bert Acosta, had this to say:
"The controversy doesn't worry
me, The entire matter-the ocean
light-was conducted in a sure
and effective manner. I am pos-
tive that if it was to be done again,
there would be no change.
Acosta Makes Statement.
"I have the highest regard for
Admiral Byrd, Bernt Balchen 'and
Lieut. Noville who were on the
flight. I did have a high regard for
Mr. Fokker, but I think he must
be getting old."
"The Flying Dutchman" gives
much of the credit for the success-
fulful crossing of the ocean and the
landing in the sea to Balchen. It
was Balchen, Fokker writes who
piloted the plane and navigated it
after reaching France.
In this Admiral Byrd agreed. He
told reporters in St: Louis that al-
chen was entitled to full credit for
the successful manner in which he
handled the plane. Admiral Byrd,
however, had no comment to make1
concerning other statements con-
cerning himself in the book until
he had read the full text.,
Balchen Comments on Affair.
Balchen's comment was that he
didn't know where Fokker got his
information about what happened
during the flight to France, but
that "there are no mistakes in it."
The Fokker book criticizes Byrd
for changing the name of his North
Pole plane to the "Josephine Ford"
and leaving off the name "Fokker"
which Fokker says was, by agree-
ment, to have been left on. Admir-
al Byrd received considerable fin-
ancial help on the flight from Edsel
Ford, in honor of whose daughter
the plane was named.
Byrd Refuses to Reply
CHICAG6, Ill., April 24.-(/P)-To
Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd
Bernt Balchen is and always has
been the hero of the trans-Atlantic
flight of the airplane America.
The aerial conqueror of the polar
regions was reluctant to discuss
comment on the flight in the "Fly-
ing Dutchman," Anthony Fokker's ,
autobiography in collaboration with
Bruce Gould.
"I Inve no statement to make,"
the admiral said. "I have not read
the book."
Byrd "wondered," however, where
Fokker got his "curious version of
the flight."

LANSING - The Michigan public
utilities commission announced to-
day that it has no power to present
the eastern Michigan Railway com-
pany from abandoning the Pontiac-
Flint and Detroit-Toledo divisions
of its electric interurban service.
The announcement was made in
answer to protests against the aban-
donment of the service.

methods have been the most radical
during the past several centuries, he
continued by saying that the revo-
lutionary business conditions have
tired men of more than 45 years
of age, so that they are looking for
younger men to assume their places
as leaders in the business world.
"Places for the college man in
business during the next year or so
will be few, however," he continued,
placing his belief on the assumption
that the effects of the contempor-
ary business depression will carry
over for that period.
The present depression will end
by October 1, Lynch predicted. Peo-

dise are falling, and buying is in-

University Debaters, Speaking
Contest Winners Barred
From Competition.
An opportunity to voice honest
and intelligent opinions on the
question, 'iShould University regu-
lation of student .affairs be confin-
ed to the ciassroom?" is offered by
the Oratorical association's annual
extempoaneous speaking contest,
according to Robert Murphy, '31,
vice-president, who is in charge.
Murphy pointed out another feat-
ure of the contest, that it is limited+
to men and women who have never
represented the University in any
outside debate or oratorcal con-
test, and have never won a speak-
ing contest within the University.
Some minor changes in the rules
previously announced have been
made. Next Wednesday, at four
o'clock is the closing time for en-
tries, which are to be handed in at
the speech department office on the
floor of Angel hall. The former
date was Monday.
The preliminaries, which will be
run off in groups of five or six, will
c o n s i s t of five-minute prepared
speeches on any phase of the as-
signed subject. Each contestant,
after his prepared speech is pre-
sented, will be handed a question
on the material he has covered. He
will remain .on the platform, and,
after the others have spoken, will
give a five-minute extemporaneous
talk on the question.
Semi-finals will be held if nec-
essary, Murphy announced, a n d
about five will be chosen for the
finals. A similar system, including
five minutes each of prepared and
extemporaneous speaking, will be
used there.
Gold, silver, and bronze medals
will be given for the first three
places in the contest.
Mimes to Give Final
Performance Tonight
The 'final performance of "The
'Perfect Alibi,' a mystery comedy by
A. A. Milne, will be given at 8:15
o'clock tonight in the Laboratory
theatre. The production opened here
on Wednesday.
Karl Litzenberg, of the English
department, directed the show,
which is Mimes' last production for
this year. R. Duane Wells, '32, and
Kathryn Kratz, '32, head the cast,
assisted by Whitney Dixon, '31, Tom

President Hoover tomorrow will I
turn southward to take part in the
celebration of an anniversary of
one of the country's important his-
torical events.
He will join Sunday in a pilgrim-
age to Cape Henry, Virginia, where
324 years ago English colonists
landed and stopped for a few days
before journeying to Jamestown
and establishing the first perman-
ent English colony in America.
Last October the president went
to King's Mountain, North Carolina,
and made an address celebrating
the Battle of King's Mountain, an
important engagement of the Revo-
lutionary war.
The chief executive, Mrs. Hoover
and a small party will go from
Washington to Little Creek Inlet,
about five miles from the cape, on
a 140-foot inspection boat belong-
ing to the department of commerce.
There a special train will meet him,
aboard which will be Gov. Pollard
of Virginia and other dignitaries.
