weeks to students needing financial
support, it was announced yester-
day by Prof. Hugo P. Thieme, of

Eligibility for the scholarships,
which will be available only to
students in the College of Liter-
ature, Science and the Arts, will be
determined through three judges,
Professor Thieme, Prof. Henry
Huchirls, of the Englis11 depart-
ment, and Prof. Floyd E. Bartell,
of the chemistry department. Con-
sideration will be made on the
basis of scholarship, personal im-
pression and financial need.
I Students wishing to obtain the
scholarships are asked to fill out
completely the application blanks
which are available in Dean John
R. Effinger's office and to give a
personal history of themselves as
well as the grades received in Uni-
versity courses to date. These ap-
plication blanks will be read care-
fully by each of the three commit-
teemrien and interviews will be
granted to students fulfilling the
initial requirements. Those making
the greatest impression upon the
committee in the interviews and
those having the greatest need for
the available funds will be given
scholarships ranging from $100 to
$200. The closing date for the appli-
cations has been set for Oct. 25.

Upperclassmen, especially seniors,
will be given preference in the allot-
ment of the $2,000 now available,
Professor Thieme stated yesterday.
Scholarship will be of primary im-
portance in the distribution, he de-
clared. In many cases in the past,
the $100 and $200 scholarships have
enabled students who were working
from 35 to 45 hours a week outside
of school to cut that extra time to
20 hours, leaving more than three
hours a day open for school work.
Scholarships to be distributed this,
fall will number between 10 and 15
depending on the amount necessary
in each case.

One-Time Assistant
to Drugs Magnate
Rewarded at Last
( La r,' !ssocwiab'I Press)
CHICAGO, Oct. 14--Good deeds
done mre than 30 years ago to-
day began paying dividends to
Charley Morris, a Negro who had
beyn dodging hard luck unsuc-
cessfully since the Spanish-
American War.
Before the war Charley was a
$9 a week porter in a drug store,
where he became a warm friend
of Charles Walgreen, an $18 a
week clerk. Before the war end-
ed Waigreen was sent home ill
and the Negro and his wife
nursed him back to strength in
their own home. Then they part-
ed and for 30 years neither knew
where the other was.
Dame Fortune smiled on Wal-
green. He rose to the head of a
huge drug store chain. Morris
was luckless and while ill and
jobless saw an advertisement in
a Chicago paper the other day
bearing the name of "Walgreen."
As he sat in the reception room
a bald-headed man stopped and
looked at him.
"Isn't your name Morris?" he
"Sure is, boss," said Charley,
and then, "say you ain't Charley

me in a drug store before the
"That's exactly who I am,"
Walgreen replied, and the spec-
tators stared as the drug store
magnate grabbed the old Negro
and hugged him like a long lost
And, to make a long story
short, Charley walked out of the
office, with a life-time job with
his old boss.

German Party Leader Hopes to
Place Legislature Under
One-Man Control.
Suggests Germany Adopt System
of Responsibility Used in
Former Prussian Army.
(S Assocated Press)
BERLIN, Oct. 14.-Notwithstand-
ing Adolf Hitler's bitter attempt
for parliamentary government it
won't be necessary to tear down the
Reichstag building if he and his
followers realize their ambition to
establish a German fascist state.
Under Hitler the Reich still would
have its Reichstag, but the Reich-
stag members would not have to
wrangle among themselves f o r
weeks or months trying to come to
a decision. They merely would ex-
press their various opinions on the
question at issue, leaving it to one
man to decide and to bear the re-
sponsibility of his decision.
Urges Responsibility of Leaders
The new German state must be,
as Hitler expresses it, "organized
on the principle of the old Prus-
sian army, that of absolute author-
ity for each leader over those sta-
tioned below him, and absolute re-
sponsibility of eackh leader to his
superiors. This would not elimin-
ate parliament and councils but
their functions would be to advise,
not to decide."
Such a combination of personal
authority and responsibility co-ex-'
istent with elected advisory bodies,
Hitler believes, will not mean the
killing off of parliaments but their
elevation to a position of real use-
fulness. To use his own words:
One Man to Bear Responsibility
"Their advice then really will ad-
vise, but the responsibility can and
must be borne only by one person,
who at the same time must possess.
the sole authority and right of
command. Parliaments in and of
themselves are necessary, for it is
above all in such assemblages that
those minds to whom one later can
entrust especially important tasks
have an opportunity to lift them-
selves gradually above the crowd."
But the tellers who have been so
busy in recent Reichstag sessions
counting the inevitable votes can
take a vacation then. And the vot-
ing urns which today are a picture-
sque feature of the Reichstag fur-
niture can be stowed away in the

Professor Hobbs' connection with
exploration rests chiefly with his
Greenland expeditions of 1927 and
1928. On these trips a meteorolo-

shows that Greenland is the north
