Further viewpoints on the Techno-
cracy controversy were presented
yesterday in additional interviews
with faculty men, two of them pro-
fessors in the engineering college and
one of them an economist.
The three men interviewed-Prof.
Morris A. Copeland of the economics
department, Dean H. C. Sadler of the
engineering college, and Prof. A. 11.
White of the department of mechani-
cal engineering, were as one in be-
lieving that the arguments presented
by the Technocrats were distinguish-
ed to a great extent by vagueness.
Professor Copeland, however, for the
most part took issue with such of the
findings of the Technocrats as were
clearly stated, while the two engi-
neers, in one manner or another,
tended to favor the statements of the

'Disregard Scott's Record'
It was pointed out by Dean Sadler
that Howard Scott, the chief propon-
ent of technocracy, should not be
condemned on the basis of his per-'
sonal past record. If he has produced
an idea which is really worth some-
thing, the dean insisted, his past rec-
ord should be disregarded. when the
idea itself is under consideration.
In a statement to The Daily, Dean
Sadler said, "As with al new ideas,
one naturally would exr ect a rather
distinct line of 'cleavage between the
proponents and their opponents. The
first, carried away by their enthus-,
lasm, are apt to see in their theory
he only solution of the problem,
while the second, with firmly fixed

"Almost all developments in past
iistory have had as one of their basic
factors the question of man power.
Today we have this same unit plus
the ever-increasing new element of
the machine. A consideration of these
factors led a group of scientists and
engineers originally to consider the
;ossibility of determining the total
power or energy involved in supply-
'ng the needs of our present social
Order. Fundamentally, everything on
this planet may be reduced to a con-
sideration of transformation of en-
ergy; and while the complete data
upon which Technocracy has based
some of its assertions and suggestions
have not so far been published, it
cannot be denied that if nothing else
has been accomplished, it has at least
drawn attention to the fact that the
solution of our present problems can-
not be settled by theories that have
been considered correct in the past.
Machine Plus Man
"Whatever may be the final solu-
tion," continued Dean Sadler, "it is
evident that not the machine alone
with its apparent economies, but the
machine plus man must enter into
all industrial and social problems.
"No particular gain accrues from
trying to, discredit new ideas by at-
tacks on personalities,"-here he re-
fers to Howard Scott- "or dismis-
sing the same without at least at-
tempting to understand them or to
see if some of them might not be

dustry generally, the numerous bank
failures, to say nothing of the hec-
tic financing both at home and
abroad, may at least lead one to won-

eral economics of the country," Dean
Sadler concluded.

NORTHAMPTON, Mass., Jan. 6.-
UP)-Calvin Coolidge lay tonight in
the home where he died so suddenly
yesterday, in the town where he had
started his career as a young lawyer.
Tomorrow he goes back into the
Vermont hills to Plymouth, his na-
tive hamlet, there to rest beside his
father and his son.
Simple services will mark his de-
parture from the city he came to as
a young man and leaves as a former
President of the United States.

Hoovers to Attend
President and Mrs. Hoover and
scores of other important personages
will attend the services. Most of the
money marts of the country will be
closed. Congress will not convene.
And in comparson the services for
the former President will last no
longer than 25 minutes at the most.
Only three pieces of music will be
included in the ceremonies. There
will be no eulogy, no address, with
strict simplicity the keynote.
There in Plymouth, the hamlet of
seven dwellings, his body will be laid
to rest in a grave on a hillside where
others of his family lie. Childhood
friends and old neighbors will stand
with heads bowed, as he had stood in
1924 when his son, Calvin, was
buried, and two years later when his
father was interred.
Rites To Be Simple
The simplieity of the service in

Church follows the wishes of Mrs.
Coolidge. She chose two of the three
musical selections that will have
their place in the program.
They were selections both she and
Mr. Coolidge liked-a prelude from
"The New World Symphony" and
"Oh, Love That Will Not Let Me Go."
The third piece will be "Lead, Kindly
Light," and will be sung by the
church quartet.
At 8 a. m. Mr. Coolidge's body,
will be taken from his home, "The
Beeches." The casket will be borne
by six policemen, members of the
Northampton force, who will repre-
sent the affection his home city felt
for the former President.

A recommendation that the Sum-
mer Daily be made permanent on the
same basis on which it was operated
last summer was included in the an-
nual report of Dean Edward H.
Kraus. of the Summer Session, to
the President.
In explanation of 'he reasons
which made the change to the pro-
fessional form of paper necessary,
Dean Kraus said, "The Summer
Daily was small in size and did not
adequately cover campus news. Then,
too, the edition did not usually ex-
ceed 1,200 copies, which meant that
since approximately 500 members of
the faculty received the Daily, that
usually not over 700 students sub-
scribed for it. Thus only one fifth of
the students were being reached by
the Daily Official Bulletin."
A plan was subsequently formulat-
ed whereby the Board in Control of
Student Publications agreed to have
the Sumner Daily edited and man-
aged by graduates who had had
ample experience on the Daily of the
academic session. The members of
the staff were paid adequate salaries
and devoted their entire time to the
Regarding the success of the new
plan Dean Kraus said, "The paper.
was a great improvement, for the
editorial staff covered campus mews
much better than ever before and
maintained throughout the session a
splendid balance between items of
local, national and international in-
terest. On the whole, the various
news items were well handled, the
editorials were dignified and timely,
and the make-up of the paper of
high quality."
The conclusion that Dean Kraus
drew is 4at "it is the general opin-
ion of those interested in the conduct
of the Summer Session paper that
the new plan was entirely successful
and that the arrangement should be
made permanent."

[Depression Is
Conquered By
398 GrAduates
Tf ley Gained Employment
Through Aid Rendered
By Occupational Bureau
In spite of the general business de-
pression and acute unemployment
situation in the teaching profession,
398 graduates, of the University
found employment during 1931-32
through the assistance of the Uni-
versity Bureau of Appointments and
Occupational Information, the an-
nual report of President Alexander
G. Ruthven shows. Of these, 256 were
given teaching positions and 142 ob-
tained positions in business or pro-
fessional lines.
In view of the general tendency
among school boards to cut teach-
ing forces to the minimum, the over-
whelming preference for local can-
didates and the great number of un-
employed teachers, this record speaks
well for the ability of Michigan edu-
cation graduates, Dr. T. Luther Pur-
dom, director of the bureau, said.
Securing employment is only one
of the functions of the bureau, the
report states. The work comes under
five main divisions: personnel re-
search work, guidance, vocational
and educational, the personnel study
of the alumni of the last ten years
(including nearly 38,000, the place-
ment of undergraduates, graduates
and alumni in the teaching profes-
sion, and placements in all kinds of
business positions.

Before resuming discussion on-.the
allotment plan, the House passed a
resolut-ioncalling on the' Reconstruc-

public loans made between February
and July of last year. There were
indications the corporation would
comply and give the names of those,
to whom it loaned more than $1,000,-
000 in the five months period.
Democrats on both sides were
pondering the proposals brought back
by Senate and House leaders from
the conference with President-elect
Roosevelt in New York' yesterday.
Among .them were additional levies
on incomes in the lower brackets,
but Speaker Garner and others made
it known that this was one of the
last resorts toward balancing an out
of line budget.
The Democrats on both sides are
still hoping'that enactment' of the

French Give Views
On Paymient Default
France's failure to meet war debt
payments Dec. 15 is believed by the
average Frenchman to be the best
means of bringing the seriousness
of the debt situation before the
American government, it has been
ascertained by means of a recent
survey among men familiar with
French sentiment.
The default was seen as a gesture
growing out of many exasperations
which France has undergone in deal-
ing with the United States, begin-
ning with the refusal of the United
States to r a t i f y the Versailles
Treaty and the failure of the United
States to conclude the tri-partite
agreement which was suggested be-
tween Wngland, France, and. Amer-
ica in 1921.
The French, said one observer who
has recently returned from France,
believe that Hoover's interference
with the reparations payments by
means of the moratorium justifies
France's action in setting aside the
Beranger settlement.
The French mind, he said, is slowly
beginning to realize that it is diffi-
cult to pin down the United States
government on diplomatic questions.
When asked what answer the
Frenchman gives to the contention
that the French agreement to pay
was signed without any conditions
attached to it which would release
France from paying if Germany did
not pay, a mani who is familiar with
French sentiment declared that the
French have always thought that'the
United States would understand the
situation in Europe and consent to a
reconsideration of Germany's rep-


a Democratic 'landslide' a year later.
