sect seemed to be just what was
needed for their emotional security.,
Temples of the "Nation of Islam"
are located in Detroit on Hastings
and. Livingston Streets. Although
both were organized by Farrad, their
doctrines differ somewhat.
The temples are a strange com-
bination of both Christian and Mo-
hammedan ideas. Children are com-
pelled to attend the Sunday School,
where they are taught the Koran in
Arabic. The services are held in
pseudo-Masonic temples and before
entering, everyone must give the
password, a protestation of the Mo-
hammedan faith in Arabic.
Although the exact figures are not
known, it is estimated that Farrad
has made "a lot of money" in the
process of converting the negroes.
Mr. Beyon explained that Farrad
taught the people that they were not
slaves, but descendants from a lost
Arabian tribe. For a certain sum
Farrad traced their family trees back
to Arabian princes, and for an extra
large sum he traced one family back
to the Quraysh, the family to which
Mohammad himself and the first
caliphs belonged.
A New Name For $10
For $10 he would give the member,
a new Arabian name, and during the
recent election the negroes insisted'
upon using, their new names when
they registered until they were pro-
hibited by officials.
"I don't believe that Farrad had
anything to do with the sacrificial
killings," Mr. Beyon said. "That was
not his idea. He did, however, teach
that any member divulging the sec-
rets of the cult should suffer death.
The idea of human sacrifice was un-
doubtedly brought in by a number
of Haitians who have recently con-
nected themselves with the-cult. They
show their faith by achieving 'vic-
tories' by sacrificing willing persons."

schools stands in great need of lead-'
ership, according to Prof. John M.
Trytten of the School of Education,
whose talk on the findings of re-
search in the field of commercial
education was broadcast yesterday
>ver the University radio station.
Mr. Trytten stressed the need for
a close relationship between the
teachers of commercial subjects and
the business men of the community
which the school is attempting to
supply with personnel,
"The commercial teacher has a
unique opportunity in the develop-
ment of students in that a more
prompt check upon the results of her
work in available than upon that of
almost any other department of the
school," said Professor Trytten.
Quoting from the results which

found through research, Mr. Trytten
showed that many schools do not
consider the business men sufficiently
in making out their curricula for
commercial studies.
Another criticism which he direct-
ed toward the existing system was
that "there is no correlating force
which will regulate all schools and
make them conform to a certain spe-
cified curriculum.
"In the past, each teacher has been
left to work out her own problems
as best she could with the materials
which were furnished her by the au-
thorities of each individual school,
who tolerated commercial education
as something which the public de-
manded rather than encouraged or
attempted to regulate it," the speaker

in highseveral students of the problem have

Limit its field of usefulness. The in-
come is to be devoted to the aid of
worthy students in engineering, mu-
sic, medicine, or some particular de-
partment and if there are no appli-
cants for it in that department it
must lie idle in spite of pressing
needs elsewhere. One of the largest
funds is specifically denied to all law,
medicine and fine arts students.
'One of the most useful funds we
have," said Dean Bursley, "is one of
very .modest size. It was established
in 1922 by a Detroit woman who of-
fered to give $30 a month for an in-I
definite period. There are no restric-
tions whatever as to its use and it is
mainly from this source that we are
givingrsmall loans to these people. It
is entirely inadequate, and the $2,000
to be contributed by the Ann Arbor
Community fund, which will be ad-
ministered in the same manner, will
be a most welcome addition."
Efforts to secure more flexibility in
the use of loan funds have met with
scant success, for the donors cer-
tainly have the right to specify how
their money shall be used, Dean Bur-
sley pointed out, and many of them
are reluctant to permit variation
from their instructions, while many
other donors are dead and some be-
quests are executed by a trust com-
