drastic realignment of railroad f -
cilities in Detroit and Michigan ,s t
recommended in a report submitted
to the Railroad Co-Ordinating Ad-1
ministration designed to effect econ-
omies of $2,000,000 to $4,000,000.
The proposals in the hands of Jo-I
seph B. Eastman, the Federal rail-1
road co-ordinator include:'
1. Consolidation of the Union
Station in Detroit with the Mich- 1
igan Central Station.
2. Elimination of individual
ticket offices downtown in favor
of a consolidated office.
3. Readjustment of schedules j
that would bring to an end dupli-
cation of passenger and freight ,
services, as operated at present.
The suggestions are a part of the
nation-wide plan for consolidation of
transportation lines into seven or
eight systems at a saving estimated
at $740,000,000. The authors are
Frederick H. Prince, Boston banker,
and John W. Barriger, chief exam-
iner of the Railroad loan section of
the Reconstruction Finance Corp. W.
B. Poland, of the co-ordinator's staff,
has been assigned to study the plan.
Eastman made it clear that he was
not committed either for or against
the Prince proposals. He added, how-
ever, that such huge economies
should not be overlooked.
Regarding Union Station facilities,
the report says:,
"The New York Central Station is
modern in every respect and has
ample capacity to accommodate -all
trains. While it is true that the De-
troit Union Railroad & Depot Co.,
owned by Pennsylvania and leased- to
Wabash and Pere Marquette, at. the
end of 1931 had a surplus after pay-
ing dividends, at the same time,
under present day conditions,=ay
with the New York Central Station
advantageously located directly off
Michigan avenue, a situation, eists
wherein co-ordination would amply
meet requirements of the City and
a net saving of possibly $250,000 a
year effected, providing favorable
terms could be negotiated."

The three-cornered struggle be-
tween Russia, China, and Japan for
the possession of the province of
Manchukuo has aroused special in-i
terest in the life and customs of the
Far East, Prof. Harry Bouchard de-
clared in a speech given last night
before a student gathering of the
American Society of Civil Engineers.
Professor Bouchard, a member of
the Geodesy and Surveying faculty,
speaks with the authority of a year's
stay in Tientsin, China as a faculty
member of an engineering school
there. He made an interesting con-
trast between the everyday existence
ef a middle-class Chinese and an
American family of the same class.
In no other country, with the possi-
ble exception of the Southern section
of the United States, is there so
much specialization in the duties of
the servant class; the cook knows
no other than cocking and so on
through the list of house servants,
Prof. Bouchard said.
There is also an unusual number
of servants for every 'middle class
home, he pointed out. The home-
wife who loves to tidy-up the kit-
chen and do the shopping would be
far from happy in China, Prof. Bou-
chard declared, since the kitchen is
usually separated from the. house
along with the servants' quarters.
The Chinese servant is so versed in
the art of shopping that a white
woman can't possibly buy as cheaply.
Life in China is as a result a great
deal like that found among the
Southern plantations even to this
day, Prof. Bouchard concluded..
Bomb Wrecks
ome Of Cuban
National Head
HAVANA, Oct. 26-()-An attempt
was made early today on the life of
Carlos Mendieta, Nationalist leader,
when his home was bombed.
Mrs. Mendieta narrowly escaped
injury when the balcony on which
she had been standing a few minutes
earlier was ripped away. Mendietta
said he had no idea who was respon-
sible for the bombing.
The explosion, which occurred
about 1:30 a. in., sattered windows
of his bedroom and tore away the
front of his home.
The bombing followed hours of
wild disorders in some parts of the
city. During the last two days police
have arrested 400 persons in an effort
to stem the trouble. Most of those
arrested were communists.
Outside the capital, the situation
also was acute - especially in Ma-
tanzas Province and at the Alto Ce-
dro sugar mill in Oriente Province,
where the American manager, C. M.
Jervis, was held prisoner by workers,
who were reported to have set up a
"Soviet regime."

Seven Persons Die On
Way To Birthday Party
BINGHAMTON,,N. Y., Oct. 26-(IP)
-Seven persons, laughing and joking,
on their way to a birthday party,
were drowned Wednesday night when
their car rolled into the Susque-
hanna River.
The dead: Elsie Eldred, 14 years
old, in whose honor the party was
planned; Avis Houston, 14; Mr. and
Mrs. Jacob Lord and their three chil-
dren, Louis, 9; Austin, 6 and Ardean,
After steering into a driveway to
ask the way, Lord started to back
out. The car backed down an em-
bankment into the icy water: Half an
hour later a passerby saw the head-
lights, almost submerged, shining out
of the river.
All the passengers had been
trapped inside the car, except two
children, whose bodies were found

Myron G. Doll, '04E, is now in
Moscow, U.S.S.R., as a consulting
engineer for a trust and a repre-

firm, according to word received in
the office of Wilfred B. Shaw, direc-

According to a letter received by
Harry A. Franck, '03, which he, in
turn, forwarded to local Alumni As-

There are two enemies of national
unity, sectionalism and class, and if
the spirit of sectionalism and the
spirit of class are allowed to grow
strong, or to prevail, it means the end
of national unity and the end of pat-
