Nations Who Signed Pact

America In Dispute
McDonald Plan Is
Generally Approved
Part One, Dealing With
'Security,' Resolves Into
Perplexing Problem
WASHINGTON, March 17.-(P)-
American statesmen poring over the
far reaching British disarmament
proposal tonight found themselves
faced with a vital decision as to"
whether the United States should"
permit itself to join in solving any
dispute which might arise between
nations which have signed the fa-
mous Pact of Paris.
This question stood out as the
most important from an American
viewpoint of all the matters covered
in the plan presented yesterday by
Prime Minister Ramsay McDonald
of Great Britain.
General Accord On Plan
On the provisions dealing with spe-
cific steps toward reduction of armies,
navies, and war materials, the Amer-
ican government found itself in gen-
cral aqcord as most of the proposals
closely resembled suggestions made
previously by President Hoover and
endorsed in general by President
On the other hand, Part One of
the McDonald plan dealing with "se-
curity" brought up for decision the
whole perplexing problem of Ameri-
can participation in the solution of
disputes which might involve purely
European countries.
The Democratic platform declares
in favor of backing up the Pact of

that problems it presents are only
partially solved by Technocracy.
Power, Prestigc-No Profit
"It is impossible," he said, "to at-.
tach power and prestige to produc-
tion without the intermediary con-
nection of the profit motive." This,
according to the economist, would be
achieved by having producers turn
out goods in the greatest possible
quantities and at the smallest costs
consistent with the functioning of
economic laws. A man who found a
way to do this, Professor Handman
said, would 'be regarded as a great
man, and would have more power
than profit alone can give.
This he opposed to the "generally
vague" solutions of the technocrats
out of the present economic muddle.
The price system, it was stated, need
not be abolished, inasmuch as it is
merely a convenient economic device.
In tracing the historical develop-

In the next phase, specuation grew
rapidly, and became a fashionable
means of adding to one's wealth; but
the idea of producing in order to
make money had not as yet dawned
upon occidental civilization. The
first to see the connection between
money and power were small groups
of merchants and traders by sea.
Here was the first appearance of the
power profit motive.
Important by 1900
This sort of motivation, said Pro-
fessor Handman, became more and
more apparent until by the begin-
ning of the nineteenth century its
importance was unmistakable. At the
present time, particularly in America,
the original purpose-production-
becomes obscured in enterprise by
the incidental manifestation, money,
which becomes of prime importance.
This, he said, is because the original

attorney general, said today.
He held the state 'prohibition law
remained effective and binding, re-
gardless of the repeal oftthe bone-
dry law in the state constitution. The
Michigan prohibition statute declares
beverages containing "any" alcohol,
are illegal. The Supreme Court has'
ruled that under this act beverages
even with a low alcoholic content
are prohibited.
A special commission has been
named by Governor Comstock to
recommend state legislation, It is ex-
pected the body will propose a state
liquor control law to replace the ex-
isting dry statute. O'Brien said he
does not plan to submit bills to per-
mit the sale or use of beer in this
state, because he is waiting for the
commission report. He feared, how-
ever, some members of the legisla-
ture "might get impatient" and offer
legislation if the commission does
not act soon.

emy members at 3 p. m. in Room 2003
Natural Science Building.
Prof. George R. LaRue of the zoo-
logy department delivered the pres-
idential address last night, speaking
at the annual banquet of the society
in the Union. A general meeting for
the discussion of land utilization in
Michigan was held in the afternoon,
with five specialists presenting their
- approaches to the problem.
Speaking on the subject, "The
Place of Parasitology in Conserva-
Lion," Professor LaRue said that
parasitologists do not believe that
they can solve all, or most of the
problems of conservation, but that
they believe they can be of assist-
ance. "Conservation is altogether too
big a field for any single group to
attack alone," he said.
Urges Co-operation
Professor LaRue advocated slow,

wo-operation by men trained In
cience, economics, administration,
and practical psychology, assured -y
the continued "su"ppot rof te p
of the state, as the essetials f a
conservation program.
Parasitism is extremely common,
Professor LaRue said, and in animals
nearly every species from the larg-
est whale to the amoeba has yielded
parasites of one kind or another. He
explained in detail the manner in
which parasites live and breed in
their "hosts," usually inhabiting two
or more .animals during their life
"A parasitological survey of Mih-
igan including all the animals in the
3tate is greatly needed," Professor
LaRue said. It could be carried out
without a great deal of extra expense
or labor in connection with the bio-
logical survey now going on, he
pointed out. He also suggested a sur-
vey of all predators.

In an attempt to satisfy the French1
demand for international guarantee,
of its security against attack in re-
turn for sacrificing some of her mili-
tary power, the McDonald plan as
