Mr. LaGuardia," said McKee,

Pollock Speaks At
IPress Club Meeting
Speaking before the members of
the Student Press Club, Prof. James
K. Pollock of the political science de-
partment last night discussed the
subject of foreign news under the ti-
tle "Liberty and the News."
"We cannot emphasize too great-
ly," said Professor Pollock, "the im-
portance of a free and uncontrolled
press. The people of the United
States take this measure for granted."
He further emphasized the situa-
tion of the German press, which he
called intolerable in this stage of
the world's development. He ex-
plained that the people of Germany
are today completely in the dark
about developments even in their own
country, not to mention foreign af-
"The complete destruction of es-
tablished newspapers is indeed a tra-
gedy. It is only a matter of a few
years that Germany will be able to
hold on with this system," he con-
Prof. Pollock showed his collection
of over 100 foreign newspapers which
he has gathered during his travels on
the Continent. The lecture was fol-
lowed by an open forum.

Short Wave Radio Adopted In
Fire Prevention Experiments

Predetermined wells, short wave
radios, and trick plows are now be-
ing used in forest fire prevention at
the Michigan Forest Fire Experimen-
tal Station at Roscommon, Mich., the
only one of its kind in the world.
The station is headed by Gilbert
Stewart, '22, to whom most of the
credit for the newly developed fire
fighting methods is due.
A large area of state forest land
has already been surveyed by the
U. S. Geodetic Survey, aided by the
Civilian Conservation Corps, to de-
termine where the ground water ta-
ble is sufficiently close to the sur-
face to make the hurried sinking of
wells practicable.
The equipment for the work is car-
ried on a truck and consists of a long
pipe supported on a derrick, through
which a powerful stream of water is
As the water eats its way through
the ground the pipe is lowered until
the water table is struck. Another
pipe is then lowered into the first
and the water is .raised by means of
a gasoline pump. Wells which will
deliver water at the rate of 35 gal-
lons per minute have been sunk in
eight minutes.
The short wave radios are used to

direct forest rangers and fire fighters
in their work, and operate much as
do police radios. The effective range
for the speaking voice is about 15
miles; code messages can be sent for
a much further distance. Radio calls,
however, will not go through any
hills which might be between the re-
ceiving and sending stations.
Mr. Stewart has designed a fire-
break plow to be operated behind a
light tractor. The plow is unique in
that it will stay upright without the
necessity of having a man to guide
it, and can easily negotiate sharp
corners. It is said to be especially
effective in brush and slightly stony
Banks Hesitate
In Promoting
Credit Program
Directors Of Wall Street
Banks Are Silent On New
Governnient Plan
NEW YORK, Oct. 16.-()-While
Wall Street expected a week ago that
its leading banks would eventually
get behind the scheme of expanding
their capital funds through the RYFC
to promote the government's credit
expansion program, the new week
finds the situation completely in the
Several directors meetings have
been held in the past fortnight, and
the traditional silent director became
even more silent on leaving these
meetings. There has been no official
statement that the plan as advanced
by Jesse Jones in his recent visits
to the financial district would be
abandoned. In private discussions,
however, bankers have made no se-
cret of the fact that strong opposi-
tion has developed.
At the moment, a group represent-
ing the clearing house banks is said
to be ready to proceed to Washing-
ton, when and if called, to discuss
the matter further. In the meantime,
however, Continental Illinois National
Bank & Trust Co. of Chicago, the
fifth largest bank in the country, has
come forward and arranged to sell
$50,000,000 in preferred stock to the
R.F.C. It is suggested that Wall
Street may be content to let Chicago
provide the big bank leadership in
this movement to prompt smaller
banks to bolster their capital struc-
tures through the R.F.C.

Mitchell Says
Leisure Might
Prove Menace
Daily Schedule Of Radio
Broadcasts Begins This
Week; Hobbs To Speak
"The new leisure may be a threat
and a menace," declared Prof. Elmer
D. Mitchell, director of intramural
athletics in a radio address Sunday,
speaking on the subject of "Recon-
struction in Education."
Stressing the fact that working
hours are now less than ever before,
he stated that many persons do not
know how to use their greatly in-
creased period of leisure and that it
is society's duty to educate future
generations to enjoy it.
"Man, throughout history, has al-
ways prized leisure and has longed
for it," Professor Mitchell said.
"Whenever he has tried to conceive
of an ideal state of existence he has
dreamed of many free hours when he
could follow the dictates of his pleas-
ure. But, perversely, now that man
has this leisure, he is not sure that
he wants it-at least not in such
Leisure at Disposal of All
"This is not the first time that
people have had leisuresat their dis-
posal. In ancient times a select group
of citizens were always free from the
necessity of work. But today it is at
the disposal of all.
"Most writers see a menace con-
fronting us. To them, America is
headed in the direction of Rome in its
decline. To Romans of that day leis-
ure meant idleness, doles, free enter-
tainments in the arena, license, or-
gies, and corruption."

be presented daily except Saturday
from the Morris Hall studios over
WJR, Detroit, began Sunday, and will
continue over a period of 19 weeks
during the school year.

17 Universities
Represented At
Heads Of Summer Session
Think Attendance Has
Reached Minimum
Belief that attendance at summer
sessions reached a minimum this
year and that interest in summer
work is probably on the increase was
expressed by deans and directors of
summer sessions at their annual
meeting, held Friday and Saturday
at Syracuse, N. Y., according to
Prof. Louis A. Hopkins, director of
the Summer Session, who represent-
ed the University.
Professor Hopkins said the meet-
ing last week wale well lattfended,
with a representation of 17 schools,
and that he considered the confer-
ence decidedly worthwhile. Mem-
bership in the association is limited
to schools offering a relatively large
amount of graduate study' during
the summer, he said.
In a resolution passed at the meet-
ing high appreciation was expressed
for the services rendered to the group
by Dean Edward H. Kraus, former
dean of the Summer Session, who
organized it about 15 years ago.
Prof. E. H. Hahne of Northwest-
ern University was elected president
for the coming year, and Ames, Ia.,
was chosen for the 1934 meeting,
Professor Hopkins said. Professor
Hopkins was chosen to the member-
ship committee.

Suffering serious injuries when
their car overturned Saturday night
after crashing into a guard rail on
U. S. 12 east of Dixboro, two Detroit
men are receiving treatment in St.
Joseph's Hospital.
The car, containing six occupants,
was going 80 miles an hour when it
failed to take the curve. The ve-
hicle tore through 11 posts and over-
turned several times, throwing all
the occupants out.
Henry Johnson, Detroit, was taken
to the hospital with a fractured skull,
while Joseph Allen, Detroit, was
brought in with internal injuries and
concussion of the brain. The re-
maining four men suffered minor
cuts and bruises. Roland B. Fisher,
driver of the car, is being, held at
the Sheriff's office for investigation.
The two injured men were still in
a very critical condition last night,

Revolvers Located
In Reinhart House
Three nickle-finished revolvers of
large calibre were discovered by Wil-
liam Gauss, nephew of John Rein-
hart, aged recluse who was murdered
a week ago today, in looking through
the former residence of the victim.
The weapons were not in the house
last Tuesday night when a party led
by Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp made a
thorough search of the premises. Two
of the guns found yesterday were on
the victim's bed, and the third was
found on a table in an upstairs room.
Police are making an investigation.
