Rehmus Becomes Vice-President;
Jocelyn Retains Post
of Treasurer.
University President Speaker
at Annual Reception
in League.
Dr. Arthur L. Cross, the Richard
Hudson professor of history in the
University, became president of the
Michigan Schoolmasters' club for
1932-33 at an election held yester-
day at the annual business meeting
in the Law building.
The administration of Professor
Cross folows that of C. S. Larzelere,
of Central State Teachers' college.
The meeting was part of the im-
portant Friday session of meetings,
which included the annual recep-
tion and dinner at 6 o'clock in the
League, at which President Ruth-*
ven addressed a group of 150
schoolmasters and their friends.
Principal Renamed to Post..
Principal Paul Rehmus, of Battle
Creek High school, was elected vice-
president of the organization at
the business meeting. He was form-
erly principal of the Tappan school
in Ann Arbor. Louis P. Jocelyn of
Ann Arbor High school retains the
office of secretary-treasurer, which
he has held for 35 years.
Lucille Mackenzie of Mount Clem-
ens High school was elected to the
executive committee for a three-
year term. Other members of the
committee completing their present
terms in office are Principal J. E.
Wellwood of Central High school,
Flint, and Assistant Principal C. S.
Cooke of the Cass Technical High
school, Detroit. Miss Mackenzie re-
placed Prof. D. L. Rich, director of
Officers and members of the club
consider yesterday's meeting one of
the best in the history of the club
which la organized at the Uni-
versit in 1886, according to Mr.
Jocelyn. The agenda of the meet-
ing was first printed on a postal
card; it now occupies 32 pages.
Discusses Adult Education.
Processes necessary to the edu-
cation of the adult were discussed
by President Ruthven last night in
an address entitled "Where Do We
Go From Here?" delivered at the
annual reception and banquet at
the League. He aserted that the
course of civilization is being
changed, and that persons believ-
ing that present conditions are
only temporary, and progress in
what was its normal sense will be
resumed, will shortly discover their
"We have been on a tack, but
now we are changing it and find
that the change is making the
going rough," he said. Progress, he
stated, may come through survival
of the fittest, but it will come less
expensively through knowledge.
He described the program of
adult education as one wholly de-
tached from entertainment and
requiring a continuous, intensive
study and objective thinking. The
thinking powers are acquired only
through the expensive method of
experience and the efficient method
of serious study, he asserted. The
specialist must gain a broad knowl-
edge, otherwise he will do more
harm than good in his own group.
Larzelere is Toastmaster.
Ex-president C. S. Larzelere acted
as toastraster at the function.
Many activities 'of organizations

whose meetings were correlated
with those of the Schoolmasters'
club also occurred yesterday. They
included the conferences of the
administrative teachers, art, biol-
ogy, business schools, commercial,
education, English, general science,
geography, home economics, junior
high school, mathematics, modern
language, music, physical educa-
tion, physics-chemistry-astronomy,
research, school health, school lib-
rary, social science, and the speech

Oldfather Seeks Enlightened
Intolerance' to Bolster
Cultural Levels.
Pleading for an "enlightened in-
tolerance" on the part of the pro-
fessional educators of America in
order to lift the country from the
"sheer sappiness" which he says it
has fallen into in recent years, Prof.
W. A. Oldfather, head of the classi-
cal department of the University
of Illinois, spoke on "Levels of Cul-
ture" in a University lecture deliv-
ered before the Schoqlmasters' club
yesterday afternoon.

HONOLULU, April 29.--)-
The four defendants in the Jo-
seph Kahahawai lynching case
were convicted tonight of man-
slaughter by a radically mixed
jury which asked leniency.
A loud sob broke from Mrs.
Thalie Massie, central character
in the unusual chain of circum-
stances surrounding the case,
when the first verdict was an-
nounced convicting Lieut. Massie,
her husband.
The maximum penalty for
manslaughter is 10 years im-
prisonment. They were charged
with second degree murder which
calls for a penalty of 20 years to
life imprisonment. Judge Davis
ruled that the jury could find
not only a second degree murder
verdict but also manslaughter or
acquittal or for Massie, not guilty
by reason of insanity.-

Michigan Quintet
IQualifies in 880
at Drake Relays,
DES MOINES, April 29. - (A')-
Athletes of the Western Confer-
ence contributed three new marks
today in the opening of the 23rd
annual Drake relays.
Indiana's medley relay team
shattered the intercollegiate record
while Saling, University of Iowa
hurdler, and John Brooks, Chicago
university Negro broad jumper, set
new marks in their specialties. .I
Michigan won the fastest pre-
liminary heat in the 880 yard relay.
The team of Ellerby, Glading, De-
Baker, and Russell making 1:27.7.
Kansas was second. Nebraska and
Marquette won the other heats.
Brooks of Michigan qualified in
i the discus throw and the shot put.
Rhea of Nebraska made the best
distance, 50 feet % inch, in the shot
put, while Purma of Illinois led!
the discus qualifiers with a throw
of 144 feet, 4 inches.
The Hoosiers, anchored by the
:riving Henry Brocksmith, raced
the ten laps of the medley relay in
the time of 10:19.1, which bettered
by nine-tenths of a second the
intercolegiate mark made by a Yale
quartet in 1915. The old mark of)
10:21.6 was made by Iowa state
last year.
The start of the race scarcely
ndicated an easy Hoosier victory as
Martirh, running the first quarter,
was kept back in the field. Neese,
running the half mile lap, started
near the tail enders but finished
third and I,.'emp gave Brocksmith a
lead of 10 feet over Howery of
Notre Dame as they started the
final mile.
Brocksmith was clocked in 4:17
and finished 120 yards ahead of the
Notre Dame star.
,rooks' performance in the broad
jump was the most surprising of
the day. He leaped 24 feet 3 and
3-8 inches to better the record set
by DeHart Hubbard of Michigan
in 1924.

Upholds State System

Debate Closes Season;
Former Manager

Backed by a cheering throng of
more than a thousand classmates
and friends, three Muskegon High
School debaters were handed the
state championship debating tro-
phy last night in Hill auditorium
after decisively downing the Oxford
debaters with a heavy barrage of
facts and figures to prove that a
system of unemployment insurance
should be adopted by the state of

Prof. G. E. Densmore, of the speech
department and former manager of
the Michigan Debating League, pre-
sided, and a short speech of pre-
sentation was made' at the close of
the debate by Malcom W. Bingay
of the Detroit Free Press.
Security Point of Issue.
The controversial point of the de-
bate contered around the question
as to whether the working man suf-
fered from insecurity at the pres-
ent and whether unemployment in-
surance would bring about secur-
ity providing that such a condition

Bratsburg Impresses Listeners.
Bratsburg of Muskegon, who gave
he best impression of the group
s a polished speaker, refuted the
rgument that business could not
tand the burden of the insurance
>lan by pointing to the fact that
usiness in the United States paid
ut more than sixteen billion dol-
ars a year in dividends. The plan,
iratsburg indicated, would also
reatly increase the buying power
jf the consumer.
As the second negative speaker,
Villiam Lockwood, Oxford, brought
ut the uncontested point that the
'lan which was being proposed
iould only affect half of the pres-
nt army of unemployed. Half of
he men out of work today, he said,

Oxford Debator Final Speaker.
The final speaker of the debate,
Jordon Thomas of Oxford, admit-
ed that there was a problem to
.olve, but expressed himself as be-
ieving that the insurance plan
vould only increase the dissatisfac-
ion of the worker as it had in
Ingland, according to his claim. He
;uggested another plan of meeting
