The second commission of the poli-

the Far Eastern crisis and the League
of Nations, decided that Japan has
"found it necessary to fence off, po-
lice, develop, and exploit Manchuria
not only as an essential source of
raw materials but also to obtain a
commercial market." It was further
found that China, "handicapped by
a foreign war and economic exploita-
tion on the one hand and political,
social, and economic re-adjustment
on the other hand, is struggling to-
ward modernization." The "new or-
der" arising in the affairs of nations
as a result of the Kellogg Pact and
the founding of the League of Na-
tions was called to the commission's
attention by Benjamin King, Grad.,
chairman, wh added that the Sino-

tween Japan and the United States.
Tarini Sinha, Grad., presented to
the political science division's night
meeting a detailed discussion of the
future of the League of Nations, trac-
ing the organization's growth and
telling of its wort in the highly com-
plicated field of world affairs. "In-
telligent critioism alone can build the
league into a truly vital factor in in-
ternational co-operation," Sinha said.
"To understand the league and to
offer constructive criticism is the way
to modify and improve the interna-
tional outlook. We, the American
students, must bend our intellectual
efforts insofar as possible to aid the
league's activities and methods."

Schools Should Be Kept Open
At All Costs, Says Carrot hers

"The public schools should be kept
open at all events, even if the teach-
ers are not paid a cent for the pres-
ent," declared Prof. George E. Car-
rcthers of the School of Education in
an interview yesterday commenting
upon the drastic cuts being made in
school budgets and teachers' salaries.
Although it is a recognized fact
that schools, whether state or local,
must suffer reductions in appropria-
tions along 'with other public enter-
prises, they should not be cut out of
proportion to other public activities,
he said. Professor Carrothers further
believes that instead of attempting
to maintain high teacher salaries by
eliminating some of the staffs, every
competent teacher should be re-
tained, they having a general cut in
all salaries. It was pointed out that,
if discharged through economy meas-
ures, teachers would only swell the
now gigantic ranks of the unem-
ployed. He declared that those teach-
ers that were retained would have
to take over more instructive work
and this would tend to decrease their
general efficiency.
Professor Carrothers advocated
that teachers be taken into the con-

fidence of the various school boards
in making any drastic cuts in salaries
or staff. In so doing, he said, the
teachers would readily recognize the
necessity for such reasonable cuts
that were made, and would be willing
to co-operate in the matter. He as-
cribed the recent teacher protest
gatherings in Chicago to the fact
that the school board did not take
the teachers into its confidence when
it delayed their salaries. The police
and firemen of Chicago, because of
close political connections, are in a
much more favorable position as re-
gards salaries than are the teachers,
he said.
Bringing the situation closer home,
Professor Carrothers disclosed the
fact that many teachers who had
intended to attend the Summer Ses
sion of the University would be un-
able to do so unless the scrip they
were receiving for pay was accepted
by the University as tuition. He fa-
vors the acceptance of such tender
for tuition for the Summer Session,
rather than the loss of a considerable
number of . teachers who have
planned to attend, but will not be
able to do so unless scrip is honored
by the University.

Forces Do1lla r
To A New Low
LONDON, May 6.-(/P)-As Eurone
waited for indications of the future
American financial policy in the
speech to be made by President
Roosevelt to the people of the United
States tomorrow night, the American
dollar took a drubbing in exchange
markets today.
Continental speculative operations,
chiefly centering in Paris, pushed
the dollar down to $4.06 to the pound,
setting another new low record for
the American currency unit in the
period since Britain abandoned the
gold standard in September, 1931.
The Paris selling of the dollar rep-
resented gambling by speculators on
the possibilities of inflation in the
United States.
There also was another factor in
the dollar's toboggan slide. A press
report from Washington saying that
there probably would be a morator-
ium on war debts apparently was
misconstrued in some sections of the
financial district to mean that a
moratorium actually had been offi-
cially decided on. T h i s belief
strengthened the pound against both
the dollar and the French franc.
Great secrecy surrounded the oper-
ation of exchange speculators who
are pushing the dollar quotation
down, but it was known that they
had their headquarters in Paris. This
powerful ring is credited with having
untold millions at its disposal.

Representatives Discuss
World Situation In A
Friendly Conference
WASHINGTON, May 6. - (AP) -
America and Italy clasped hands in
agreement tonight on a program of
world recovery encompassing arms
reduction, a tariff truce, a return to
the gold standard, an international
plan of public works building, and a
world-wide expansion of credit.
In language concrete and impera-
tive, these steps were set forth by
President Roosevelt and Italy's fi-
nance minister, Guido Jung, as the
upshot of four days of intensive con-
centration upon the world's economic
War debts, too, were discussed be-
tween them.
To reporters at the handsome stone
Italian embassy on 16th St., Jung,
said in answer to questions:
"We explored the debts problem
sympathetically and in a spirit ofj
friendliness, each of us setting forth
the point of view of his own gov-
ernment. There was no agreement
nor decision."
Italy owes the United States about
$2,000,000,000 but enjoys the easiest

Open Air Camp At
Patterson Lake To
Benefit 400 Boys
The University Fresh Air Camp,
for the support of which a tag sale
will be held May 11 on the campus,
has annually given free outings to
over 400 delinquent boys during the
last five years. Started 12 years ago,
this University organization has
yearly provided a period of summer
outdoor work in the woods at Patter-
son Lake for underprivileged boys
Last year 25 different nationalities
were represented at the camp, in-
cluding Americans, English, Ger-
mans, and Poles. The boys came
from Detroit and Ann Arbor, being
picked by various social service work-
ers as needing the advantages offered
by the camp.
Foremost in importance is nour-
ishment. Many of these boys are
under normal weight. Plenty of fresh
fruit, a variety of vegetables, and
one quart of milk per day for each
boy resulted in an average gain in
weight of over three pounds per boy
at the end of two weeks in camp.
The two wells from which the
campers procure their water were
tested and passed by the State Board
of Health. Dental inspection and first
aid administration for cuts, poison
ivy, and sunburn are also. included
on the program.
At the request of President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven the sociplogy de-
partment has been conducting a spe-
cial study of the home environment
of these youths. Several cases have
been under close observation since
last summer.

that. I did a big job and I suppose I
will have to pay for it."
Needham said the car used in the

Modern Life Invades Sanctuary
Of 3 Spinsters In 'Murray Hill'

"Murray Hill," by Leslie Howard,
Comedy Club's forthcoming produc-
tion to be presented next Thursday,
Friday, and Saturday as one of the
features of Spring Homecoming,
is a three-act comedy set in a mid-
Victorian household with an ultra-
modern surrounding."
The play, taken from the Wendel
Sisters who recently died in the East,
centers around a household of three
elderly spinsters, shut up in their
island of high lace collars and 30-
year old ideas of morals, surrounded
by a whirl of modern life.
Carrying the humorous parts are a
nephew, from the West, and his aunt.
The nephew, a drunkard, takes his
aunt out to supper in a moment of

one setting, that of a typical aris-
tocratic dwelling of the late "nine-
ties" in the Murray Hill district of
New York. The room will contain the
usual ornate atmosphere with spa-
cious walls and figured furniture. In
the first act, while preparing for a
memorial service for a deceased aunt,
the room has been considerably de-
nuded of its decorations, until the
butler brings in, to the horror of the
sisters, a small, colored "vahs" with
a single flower.
"Murray Hill" represents the first
dramatic effort of Leslie Howard everI
to be produced on Broadway. It
played for sometime in New York
successfully, and was played during
the winter season in Detroit under
Robert Henderson, who took the part

Dr. Daniel L. Marsh, president of
Boston University, and Dr. Frederick
B. Fisher will unite in a symposium
on "What Place Has Religion in Edu-
cation?" at the morning services to-
day at the First Methodist Episcopal
Church. The services will begin at
10:00 a. m. to allow ample time for
the addresses. Dr. Marsh is an out-
standing leader in the educational
field and a prominent preacher.
Dr. George W. Rightmire, president
of Ohio State University, well-known
as an educator, legal scholar, and
brilliant speaker, will address the
Wesleyan Guild at 7:30 p.in. on "Our
Souls Catch Up.
"Youth Movements H e r e and
Abroad" will be discussed by the Rev.
H. P. Marley at the Unitarian Church
with a view to discovering how Amer-
ican youth measures up in the pres-
ent crisis to the youth of other coun-
tries. Mr. Marley believes that the
apparent lack of anything like a
youth movement in this country is
due to the fact that there have been
no great national issues confronting
this generation. He considers the
cynicism which Bertrand Russel sees
on the American campus to be a pro-
duct of conditions rather than a
quality inherent in the modern gen-
eration. The student meeting at 7:30
p. m. will be addressed by Tarni P.
Sinha, graduate student in econom-
ics, on "India's Contribution to the
Revolutionary Method."
