"Americans are all one family,
and we must approach the problem
in that light. A family without
enough jobs to support all its mem-
bars would not push several of
them out in the cold to starve be-
cause they had no jobs. Instead,
the family would divide the work
between all its members, and let
each do something. All would sac-
rifice, but all would live."
So capital must sha;e the bur-

industry, chief beneficiary of the
machine age, must aid by main-

Recommend National Conference
First actual work before the del-

mending a national conference on

wage standard maintenance, work
assurance, prohibition of child la-
bor, industrial stabilization, espe-
cially in seasonal industries, and
balance of production to equalize
supply and demand. k
It suggested higher taxes on

Several Postponements.
After several postponements due'
to unfavorable weather, and inabil-
ity to get the heavily-loaded plane
into the air, the aerial comrades
finally soared from Floyd Bennett
Field July 28 on the first leg in
their journey around the world.
They arrived at Moscow July 31,
Sjust 17 hours behind the time es-
Stablished by Post and Gatty.
Shortly after midnight on Aug. 1,
the procession of bad luck started.
They were forced dawn at Jiette-
gari, Siberia, because of weather
Twodays later, after several in-
termittent stops, they were forced
to land at Khabaravsk, Siberia, be-
cause of a damaged wing, and
abandoned their attempt to set a
new round-the-world speed rec-
Fined in Japan.
But, deprived of the opportunity
to continue in pursuit of one rec-
ord, Pangborn and Herndon decid-
ed to go after another. They de-
cided to ma'ke a non-stop flight
from Tokio to Seattle.
Then it was that another mis-
fortune overtook the air birds. Af-
ter completing repairs to their
plane, Pangborn and Herndon flew
across to Japan and were seized on
charges of flying over a Japanese
fortified area and taking photo-
graphs without a permit.

Government Summons Under-
world Leaders as Witnesses
in Tax Case.
CHICAGO, Oct. 5.-(P)-Seventy-
five witnesses, including Johnny
Torrio, former Chicago gang chief,
have been called by the government
as witnesses at the income tax trial,
opening Thursday, of Alphonse
Capone. Torrio was once the head
of the gang of which Capone is
The government alleges that Ca-
pone failed to pay taxes on a six-
year income of $1,038,654 derived
from his liquor, gambling and vice
interests. There are six felony and
two misdemeanor counts in the in-
dictment. If he is convicted on all
of them he will face a maximum
of 32 years and a fine of $80,000.
Capone pleaded guilty to the
charge two months ago, but later
withdrew the plea when it became
certain that Federal Judge James
H. Wilkerson would not consent to
any uarrangement whereby Capone
would receive a short sentence in
I exchange for admitting his guilt.

Reptblicans' Control of House
May Go to Other Party,
Recount Reveals
WASHINGTON, Oct. 5.-(9P)-The
possibility of the Democrats organ-
izing the new house appeared more
promising today upon the report
that the Democratic candidate in
the Eighth Illinois district would be
issued a certificate of election.
Although Peter C. Granata, Re-
oublican, was issued a certificate
last November, Secretary of State
Stratton of Illinois announced at
Springfield that Stanley H. Kunz,
Democrat, would be issued a new
ertificate on the basis of a recount.
What action Granata will take is
unknown here.
With his replacement, the Dem-
ocrats would have 215 and the Re-
publicans 213 seats under present
count. However, the official figures
on the standing of the parties now
are 214 and 214. Until Kunz' certi-
ficate of election is received by Wil-
liam Tyler Page, house clerk, there
will be no official change.
Leaders in both parties have been
watching the Granata-Kunz con-
test as well as the race to fill the
vacancy in the First Wisconsin dis-
trict. The Democrats have but slight
hope of taking the Wisconsin seat,

publican supported by the LaFol-
lettes and Senator Blaine, was nom-

The Democrats believe they have
a good chance to win the seat in
the First Ohio district left vacant
by the late Nicholas Longworth,
besides filling the normally Dem-
ocratic seats vacant in Ohio and
New York.

Stamping the life of Christopher,
Columbus as one in which he de-
liberately obscured the true history
of his past prior to his appearance
in Spain, Prof. Arthur Aiton, of the
history departmeit, yesterday af-I
ternoon read a paper on the Uni-
versity radio program over station
WJR in which he accused the dis-
coverer of America of substituting
for his true history "an impossible
story of exalted ancestry, pretend-
ed voyages, and remarkable discov-
That Columbus' personal history
as written by his, son Ferdinand
and his friend Father Las Casas
was an "embroidered tale" with lit-
tle basis of truth was not brought
to light until well into the middle
of the nineteenth century, when
modern historical methods uncov-
ered the true facts of Spain's great
explorer, Professor Aiton said.
"Henri Harisse, employing the
method of internal criticism, at
that time first revealed the con-
tradictions within the narratiyes
upon which the whole pretentious
superstructure of fable had been
erected," said Professor Aiton, "and
opened the way to the slow process
of recovering the truth about Co-
lumbus from the documentary rec-
ord of the fifteenth and early six-
teenth. centuries."
Professor Aiton declared that
investigators had worked for years
in attempting to uncovering such
elementary data regarding Colum-
bus as his age, birthplace, place of
burial, or immediate ancestry, all
of which remained shrowded in
mystery to baffle the investigations
Lecturer to Defend
Dry Question Oct. 12
Raymond C.^ Robbins, nationally
known lecturer, is to speak Mon-
day, Oct. 12, in the Natural Sci-
ence auditorium, it was announced
by Jule Ayers, '32, chairman of the
open forum committee of the Stu-
dent Christian association.
The subject of Mr. Robbins' lec-
ture, will be "In Defense of Pro-

* of historians.
"The destruction of time-honor-
ed legends, h o w e v e r," Professor
Aiton stated, "is not unattended by
perils. Over-enthusiastic patriots
and even dishonest seekers after
self-glorification have taken ad-
vantage of the "de-bunking" phase
of the historigraphy of Columbus
tGo advance novel theories and to
fabricatefresh falsehoods about
his life."
The speaker confined himself
primarily to an analysis of the ma-
terial available for the determina-
tion of Columbus' birthplace, indi-
cating that "the question of his
nationality has been an especially
attractive field for controversy:"
