governors at next Tuesday's off-

The government sought original-

about 20 per cent was paid. The
decision is expected to be appealed.
Judge Nields held unconstitu-

OF ENGINEERS TALK
YEARS AGO MICHIGAN WAS MOST
DEAMOCRA TIC SCHOOL, AUTHOR SAYS
Profession Will Enter Field
Wealth Distribution Says
Engineers are responsible for
many of the luxuries that we enjoy,
Prof. A. P. Gwiazdowski of the en-
gineering department said in a
radio talk yesterday afternoon over
station WJR. They have put many
conveniences within the reach of
people through mass production.
The engineer has coordinatedl
the efforts of the chemist, metal-
lurgist, physicist, mathematician,
bookkeeper, floor sweeper, and
tropical savage to create a perfect
product at the lowest possible cost,
The every day rule for the pro-
duction engineer is, "Subdivision of
operations is a function of accur-
acy," Professor Gwiazdowski said.
The subdivision of operations de-
creases the time element, and
therefore the price of the finished
product, he said.
This simple rule has mane it pos-
sible for millions of American fam-
ilies to own automobiles, radios,
telephones, w a s h i n g machines,
vacuum cleaners, oil burners, and
in the near future the same will
apply to aeroplanes.
The engineer will invade the field
of wealth distribution before long,
Professor Gwiazdowski said. "Here,
again, the engineer's sense of jus-
tice, his desire to see all humanity
well fed, well clothed and provided
with the necessities for cultural liv-
ing will produce an economic mir-

Statement Result of Discovery
in Journal of English
65 years ago the University of
Michigan was "probably the most
democratic school in the whole
world," to quote Charles Wentworth
Dilke, an English author who came
to Ann Arbor during his tour of all
English-speaking, and English-gov-
Discovery of this piece of jour-
nalistic praise of the University of
Michigan is due to Samuel S. Isa,
of Ann Arbor, who was examining
Lauding the universities of the
a book of the travels of the English
western states over those of New
England Dilke had this to say:
"One of the difficulties of the New
England colleges has been to recon-
cile university traditions with de-
mocracy; but in the western states
there is neither reconciliation nor
tradition, though universities are
plenty. Probably the most demo-
cratic school in the whole world is
the state university of Michigan,
situated at Ann Arbor, near De-
troit. It is cheap, large, practical;
twelve hundred students, paying
only the ten dollars entrance fee,
and five dollars a year during resi-
dence-to contrast with the 8,500
enrollment and $98 tuition of 1931
-living where they can in the lit-
tle town, attend the university to
be prepared to enter with knowl-
edge and resolution upon the af-
fairs of their future life."
Stressing the simplicity of the
organization he went on with
"These things are democratic, but
it is not in them that the essential
democracy of the university is to
be seen. There are at Michigan no
honor lists, no classes in our sense,
no orders of merit, no competition.
Love of labor instead of competi-
tion in studies was the thing which
he most admired at Michigan. "It
might be supposed that these
strange departures from the sys-
tems of older universities were ir-
regularities, introduced to meet the
temporary embarrassments inci-
dental to educational establish-
ments in young states. So far is
this from being the case that, as
I saw at Cambridge, the clearsight-
ed men of the older colleges of
America are trying to assimilate
their teaching system to that of
Michigan-at least in the one point
of the absence of competition. They
assert that toil performed under
the excitement of a fierce struggle
between man and man is unheal-
thy work, different in nature and
in results from the loving labor of
men whose hearts are really in
what they do: toil, in short, not
very distinguishable from slave
He explains the reason for the
strange governing of the University
when he says, "It is explained when
we look to the source whence the
funds of the university are drawn--
namely, from the pockets of the
taxpayers of the state."
12 Year Old Killer
Given Life Sentence
ASOTIN, Wash., Oct. 29.-(IP)-
Convicted of murder, 12-year-old
Hubert Nicolls, Jr., faced life im-
prisonment in the penitentiary to-
day with a degree of happiness.
Smiling on the jury that took
two ballots to find him guilty Wed-
nesday of shooting Sheriff John
Wormell, 72, during a grocery rob-
bery Aug. 5, the frail 60-pound
school boy said:
"Well, I'm glad its over and I'm
happy they didn't send me to an
insane asylum, for even smart men
go nuts in a mad house."
Superior Judge E. V. Kuykendall
ordered the boy returned to the
courtroom today to hear the -life
sentence pronounced. It was made
mandatory by the verdict.

137 Michigan Schools Reply j
to Circular Letter Asking
for Speech Ideas.
The University broadcasting serv-
ice has received requests from 137
Michigan high schools asking for
special programs, Prof. Waldo Ab-
bot, director of broadcasting serv-
ice, stated yesterday.
A circular letter was sent in Sep-
tember to all high school principals
in the state offering to broadcast
direct to high school classes. In
the replies, subjects requested vary
from readings from the works of
Robert Burns to a talk on aviation.
The speeches chosen will comply
with the requests of the high
schools, Prof. Abbot stated, but
will be written so that they will ap-
peal to the general radio audience.
Each talk will be introduced with
the name of the teacher and high
school making the request, and
whenever possible individual stu-
dents in the listening class will be'
Recent experience has shown
that those talks whichhend with a
for reading list are satisfied by
in the subject discussed create the
greatest interest. These requests
for reading lists are satisfied by
Miss Edith Thomas of the Univer-
The Broadcasting Service mailed
cards to every member of the Uni-
versity faculty, in September, ask-
ing for a list of available topics. A
favorable number of replies were
received, but because of the un-
usual demand those members of
the faculty who have not returned
these cards with suggested subjects
are requested to do so at once.
The Speech Week Programs
which start Nov. 9 have aroused
much interest among the high
schools. Registrar Ira Smith is ar-
ranging a series of talks addressed
to high school seniors for the week
starting Nov. 30 and other depart-
mental weeks will be scheduled
