German Students Political-Minded
There is more intellectual inter-
est and less social interest among
the students of Germany as com-
pared to American University stand-
ards, according to Professor Wood.
They are all political-minded, and
take violent sides on current politi-
cal questions. Most of the students
are Nazis, Professor Wood declared.

ALBANY, N. Y., Feb. 24.-("P)--
lresident-Elect R o o s e v e l t called
James A. Farley, Democratic national
chairman and master of patronage,
to his side today to make final de-.
cision on the multitude of appoint-
ments necessary to put the new Dem-
ocratic government into operation
March 4.
The President-elect to all effects
completed his cabinet Thursday night
with the announcement that George
H. Dern, former governor of Utah,
would be his secretary of war.
He also gave a surprise with the
statement that Representative Lewis
Douglas, yo'uthful Arizona advocate'
of economy in government, would be
his new budget director. Douglas led
the economy drive in the house and
will be relied upon by Roosevelt to
use the ax on government expendi-
tures in the sveeping reorganization
he plans.

Roosevelt got in touch with- Farley

German Students Poor, Too
When asked whether there were
any students "living in attics on two
dollars a week," Professor Wood de-
clared that many of them were liv-
ing on almost nothing. There was a
time before the war when students
who tried to work their way through
the university lost caste and social
position. "This, of course, due to
present economic conditions, is no
onset true. Many Students work
while they are in school, however,
'according to American standards,
student costs are comparatively
H o w e v e r, economic conditions
throughout Germany are considerably
lower than in America. A large mid-
dle class has been wiped out by in-
flation of the currency.
Well Organized Welfare
"But in many respects Germany
is better off than we are," Professor
Wood stated. "We are badly organ-
ized, and up until a short time ago
we were afraid to recognize the prob--
lem that confronted us. Germany has
well organized welfare 'elief, but no
money to carry out needed relief on
a large scale as in Ameria.
"The Reich has been doing as
much as it can under the circum-
stances, and social insurance has
helped to a certain extent, but local
communities are almost broke.".
Cities are models of cleanliness,'
better than ours, in spite of econo-
mic advantages, Professor Wood de-
clared. Even the poorer worker's
dwellings were, always clean, char-'
acterized by a sense of. order and
Crime is conspicuously absent,
Professor Wood said, except for fair-

turbances. The police force in the
larger cities, Professor Wo'od noticed,:

At Dortmund, police banned all
