Here Thursday
Accountants' Convention
Sponsored By School Of
Business Administration
The Michigan Association of Certi-
fied Public Accountants will come to
Ann Arbor Thursday, Nov. 10, for
its eighth annual Michigan Account-
ing Conference; it was learned yester-
day at the School of Business Admin-
istration, sponsor of the convention.
The program for the meeting has
been divided into two parts, one of
a technical nature appealing primar-
ily to the accountants themselves and
the other of a non-technical nature
which should interest the general
public as well as those gathered for
the conference.

ing review, will speak on "Trends
Toward Financial Standards."
It is expected that he will deal with
the need for standards in the finan-
cial practices of promoters and is-
suers of securities, and the demand
for full and complete publicity of the
financial policies of corporations in
the annual corporation reports.
He will also discuss the obscure'
practices of public utility holding
companies, the pyramiding of con-
trol over various levels of subsidiary
companies and other vicious practices
which have been the cause of finan-
cial failures among holding compan-

Heavy Vote For Thomas
Explained By Professor
CHAPEL HILL, N. C.-Nov. 4.-
Dr. E. E. Ericson, professor of Eng-
lish at the University ofeNorth Caro-
lina in speaking to a meeting of the
Socialist group here on the campus,
explained Norman Thomas' large vote
in the campus straw ballot as a re-
sult of the unfair and biased criti-
cism that the Socialist candidate has
received because of his appearance
here on the campus. Ericson also at-
tributed some of the Socialist
strength to the feeble attacks of L. A.
Tatum, who recently presented a pe-
tition to Governor O. Max Gardner
concerning liberalism at the Univer-

,y Recent Addition
The addition of 5,389 dragonflies,1
representing 91 species, was made
this summer to the collection of the
University Museum through the ac-I
tivities of one of several expeditions.-
The collection here is known as the1
largest and most complete of its kindI
in the United States.t
The new specimens were obtained
by the recent University of Michigan-
Ditzler expedition to the southeastern I
states, it was learned yesterday from 1
E. B. Williamson, research associate
of the Museum of Zoology and leader
of the expedition.
Active during the months of Au-
gust and September, the expedition;
was made primarily to obtain speci-
mens of autumnal dragonflies, many
of which were inadequately known or
poorly represented in collections. In
addition to the dragonflies 600 mis-.
cellaneous insects, 350 herpetological
specimens, 100 crayfish, and smaller
quantities of miscellaneous material
were collected. -
The party of eight, two of whom
were from the University lived in
tents during their trip, makingethree
camps in southern Georgia, two in
western Florida, and one in western
North Carolina. Besides Mr. William-
son, the personnel included Mrs. H.
K. Lloyd, his assistant, W. H. Ditzler,
with his wife and two daughters, of
Peru, Indiana, Mark Decker, of Bluff-
ton, Indiana, and B. E. Buis, of
Coatesville, Indiana.
Civilization Is
No Aid To Our
Children, Claim
Dr. White Says Primitive
Fathers Didn't Use Whip;
Offspring 'Well Trained'
Primitive peoples are better at!
training their children than are we,
who are more civilized, in the opin-
ion of Dr. Leslie A. White of the
Anthropology department.
"Although primitive peoples never
whip their children, they areremark-
ably well brought up," said Dr.
White, speaking over the facilities of
the University Broadcasting Service
on Thursday's program.
Dr. White remarked on the differ-
ence between the children of the In-
dians and our own. "Never have I
seen an Indian child 'talk back' to
his parents or to an elder," he said.
"They are not 'fresh.' On the con-
tra6y, they are very well behaved,
obedient, and respectful to their par-
ents and to all elders."
Dr. White drew another contrast
between the treatment which chil-
dren receive among civilized and
among primitive peoples. Instead of
receiving a "preparation" for life by
being sent away to school, Dr. White
said, the children of primitive peo-
ples grow naturally into the com-
munity by working at various tasks
in the camp. 1'Commencement' for
them is when they are taken out of
the cradle. Their whole life is a
Dr. White discussed the initiation
which the young boy must undergo
before he is admitted as a warrior,
physical torture being generally one
phase of the ceremony. The cere-I
monies for girls, he said, do not in-
clude torture as a rule, but there are
a number of instances in which the
girls are tested in the same manner
as the boys are. Seclusion for a time
is one of the most frequent phases
of the initiation of the young girl.

Historical Articles On
Transportation Sought
Articles dealing with the historical
side of transportation in the state
of Michigan are wanted by the Mich-
igan State Historical Society, which
will pay $5 per thousand words for
accepted manuscripts, Professor John
S. Worley of the engineering college

The papers, which are expected to

historical development but also oper-
ating, economic, and legal phases of
the subject, may be written only by
seniors and graduate students. Pro-.
fessor Worley declared that he will
be glad to consult with anyone in-
