Warns Against Danger
o 'Pollyanna

Led by the Varsity band, seniors
in every school and college of the
University, nearly 1,000 strong, pa-
raded yesterday in the a n n u a 1
Swingout procession. The ceremon-
ies, which began at 3:30 o'clock
when the seniors assembled in the
center of the diagonal and march-
ed completely around the campus
to Hill auditorium, inaugurated the
exercises of the classes.'
Following the band as the en-
tourage proceeded northwest on the
diagonal, south on State street, east
on South University avenue, north
on East University avenue, and west
on North University, marched the
Literary college Honor Guard, head-
ed by. President David M. Nichol
and' Richard L. Tobin, swingout
Ruthven Gives Address.
At Hill auditorium, where the
classes assembled in formal meet-
ing, President Ruthven presented
the address, introduced by Tobin.
Picturesque in their caps and gowns,
which they were wearing for the
first time the seniors filed into the
auditorium, where the main Pfoor
was reserved for, them. Visitors
were confined torthe balconies.
President Ruthven's a d d r e s s,
though i n f or m.al in character,
charged the 1932 classmen with
their responsibilities in dealing with
life. "I will not" he said, "if I can
help it, have the members of the
graduating Mlasses go out from here
with Pollyanna nonsense and many
platitudes ringing in their ears."
The keynote of the president's
speech was a warning against "the
demoralizing effects of a human
tendency to fear the unknown." In
this connection he said:
"Too many people are afraid of
real living, either or both because
they are anxious to avoid pain and
discomfort, or because they worry
about the hostages which they give
to fortune."
Compares Life to Factory.
Comparing life with a huge fac-
tory, he indicated that the danger
of fear is that in dodging about
"among the belts and wheels of the
social machine," people not infre-
quently shy away from clanking
presses and griding cogwheels in-
to serious consequences with "a
buzz saw."
"An attitude of fear is neither
a noble nor a safe one," he said,
"and above all it is an inexcusable
one for you,"
While not denying that life pre-
sents dangers to be encountered,
President Ruthven described fear,
like carelessness, as "both senseless
and dangerous."
In his closing remarks he declar-
ed "All this means simply that you
are to work with happiness, for for-
tunately for us 'the great high-road
of human welfare and happiness
lies along the highway of steadfast
well-doing and those who are the
most persistent and work in the
truest spirit will inevitably be the
most successful.'"

Menefee Credited With Victory;
Both Teams Score Five
Runs in Second.
By John Townsend.
1Ferry field was the scene of the
season's first international diamond
classic yesterday afternoon, which
turned out to be more of a field
day than a ball game, with Michi-
gan collecting 13 runs to 9 for St.
Paul of Tokio. The Wolverines
nicked the Tokio pitcher for 13 hits
and two passes, while St. Paul
knocked four Michigan twirlers for
five safeties and received 11 bases
on balls. Each team was charged
with eight errors.
The fun began in the first half
of the second inning, with Travers,
who started in the box for the
Wolves, walking the first two men
up, then Tsuji beat out an infield
hit filling the bases. Hatanka then
walked forcing in Niura. At this
point Ken Manuel relieved Harry
Travers on the mound. Uchida flied
out to Petoskey who threw to the
plate in an attempt to get Momose
coming in from third, but Diffley
missed the throw and the runner
St. Paul Scores Two Runs.
The next man up, Sekiguchi,
singled to left, scoring two runners.
Manuel walked' the next man, ad-
vancing Sekiguchi to second. Kuni-
tomo sacrificed to Wistert, who tos-
sed to Manuel at first for the pu
out. Wistert messed up Yamashiro's
grounder and Sekiguchi scored. Ni-
ura ended this five-run frame by
flying out to Artz.

Members of the graduating classes in all schools and colleges of the University yesterday took part in
the traditional swingout exercises, the first of the 1o mnmencement functions of the senior classes. Here's
a group snapped as the procession started down the diagonal amid the gaze of undergraduates. The
pharmacology building may be seen in the background.

Co-Ed Leads Attack
on Engineering Arch
It took a co-ed to lead the senior
law class through a gauntlet of
senior engineers at the engineering
arch yesterday afternoon in the
traditional swing-out fight between
members of the two classes.
The girl was Florence N. Clement.
She broke from the ranks of the
procession as it reached the corner
of the arch and, followed by Earl
L. Meixner, Henry Ford, jr., Leo T.
Norville, and other members of her
class, scattered a group of engineers
stationed at the arch, the latter
numbering among its clan Harvey
Bauss, '33E, a boxer, and Carl Dou-
govito, the captain of the 193 1-32
wrestling team.
Senior engineers were vehement
in their denials last night that
more than a handful of the would-
be lawyers had broken through
their ranks.
Miss Clement, a member of the
Law Review board, won the title of
"Miss Kalamazoo" in a beauty con-
test in that city several years ago.,

Dismissed, Darrow
HONOLULU, May 4.-(P)-With-
in one dramatic hour today Lieut.
Thomas H. Massie and his three co-
defendants were sentenced to 10
years at hard labor for the honor
slaying of an alleged Hawaiian at-
tacker and then received their free-
dom through a commutation by
Gov. Lawrence M. Judd.
The swift moving final act of the
most dramatic judicial battle in the
h i s t o r y of Honolulu apparently
marked the close of the chapter of
crime which lifted Hawaii from an
unwearied paradise in mid-Pacific
into a spotlight at which the whole
world pointed.
Exactly one hour after the tall,
gray-haired Mrs. Granville Forstes-
cue, her stiffly erect son-inlaw,
Massie,rand two sailos, Albert 0.
Jones and D. J. Lord, were sentenc-
ed by Judge Charles Davis for the
slaying of jJoseph Kahahawa, they
were handed commutations.
Four Convicted Friday.
The four were convicted Friday of
manslaughter for the killing of Ka-
hahawai, alleged attacker of Mrs.
The hour they served of their
sentences was spent in the high-
ceilinged red-carpeted room in lo-
lani palace,. where they .were in
nominal custody of High Sheriff
Gordon Ross, of Oahu prison.
Fred, they returned to the Pearl
harbor naval base where Mrs. For-
tescue is preparing to leave the is-
land, probably forever. Her daugh-
ter, Mrs. Thalie Massie, whose ter-
rible experience with a group of
men last September was the begin-
ning of Lhe wave of unrest, may
go soon. Lieut. Masse, Jones and
Lord probably will be transferred
to another post.
Climax of Massie Case.
With today's climax of the mur-
der trial came almost certain end
to the Massie assault case. Clarence
Darrow, veteran Chicago attorney
who headed the defense counsel,
said he would advise Mrs. Massie to
;o away without testifying again,
and from an unimpeachable source,
it was learned that the case will
not be retried. The jury at the first
trial of Kahahawai and the four
>thers accused of attacking Mrs.
Massie failed to agree.
Without Mrs. Massie as a witness,
it would be impossible anyway.
Event to Start June 16, to Hold
Clinics for Returning
More than 1,600 alumni are ex-
)ected to attend the reunion being

The committee that formulated
the new system has been aided by
prominent faculty men and alumni.
They stated last night that the
plan had been drawn up with the
aim to get freshmen into fraterni-
ties as soon as possible without in-
terfering with Orientation week and
At the least possble expense. They
said they were sure the plan would
meet the approval of the fraternities
with little or no opposition in view
of the complete falure of the pres-
ent system and the inability of the
houses to meet their financial obli-
gations under the present situation.
The committee urged all houses
to send representatives to the emer-
gency meeting as co-operation will
be needed to obtain a quorum and I
to pass th measure.

that was expected to break up his
