The work of superintendents, su-
pervisors, and schools will improve if
parents preach the gospel of a united
school organization working hand in
hand with a united community, Prof.
Lewis W. Keeler of the education
school said Sunday in the regular
parent hour broadcast over WJR.
Professor Keeler outlined the re-
sponsibilities of the superintendent
and supervisor in the elementary
school and enumerated qualities
which the positions demand.
"The superintendent should be
the leader in the undertaking to
acquaint citizens with the aims and
purposes of education and with the
means used to secure their attain-
ment. To this end. full use should
be made of newspapers and other
easily disseminated printed informa-
tion, of public platforms, and of in-
formal gatherings," he said.
"The community must see in the
superintendent of its schools a vig-
orous and courageous leader; one
who is at all times earnest in his
determination that the community
shall neglect no means within its
power to give its children the chance
for the development of their ability
to master their environment," he
Professor Keeler characterized each
step in the struggle for mastery of
the environment as important in it-
self, and said that the "child is not
merely preparing for life but is living
"It is the business of the school
to recognize these steps and to pro-
vide conditions underpwhich the in-
dividual may attain to success in his
manipulation of the environment," he
said. "Organization exists merely to
promote the business of instruction."

The senior chapter of the National
Amalgamated Drug Store and Curb-
stone Coaches at Detroit has issued
a charter to the alumni of South
Bend for the formation of a similar
organization there.
It all came about when Frederic C.
Matthei, '14, president of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Club of Detroit
and one of the most enthusiastic
backers of the first chapter, an-
nounced that other University clubs
might petition the board of directors
of the Detroit organization for the
right to take out an official charter.
When G. C. Yyman, member and
governor of the South Bend club,
hejrd this, he was so enthused at the
possibility of the formation of a unit
in South Bend that he communicated
immediately with Mr. Matthei, who
took the request before a meeting of
the Detroit N.A.D.S.C.C. - that's
their real name.
The Detroiters acted favorably on
the, proposal and commissioned Mr.
Matthei to act as their representa-
tive in negotiations with the South
Bend club on the matter.
He communicated immediatelyj
with Mr. Lyman, informing him that
his proposal had met with the unan-
imous approval of the board of di-
rectors of the senior chapter, and
that all that remained for him to
do was to pay the $800,000 fee re-
quired of newly-formed clubs.
However, Lyman replied that the
University of Michigan Club of South
Bend could not see its way to paying
the fee under present business condi-
tions, and therefore would abandon
the plan until things improved.
Then the Detroit chapter decided
to admit them anyway and promptly
forwarded the charter. Meetings are
to start as soon as Mr. Matthei is
able to go to South Bend for the
official ceremonies for dedicating the
new organization.
The mixture of races, uniting large-
boned and small-boned people and
people of all different sorts of head
shapes and sizes has made it harder
for the modern woman to have a
child. - Dr. W. B. Hendry.

Detroit, Oct. 30.-(P)-A mob said
by police to number 2,500, riding in
nearly 300 automobiles, today swept
through streets in which several tool
and die shops are located, hurling
bricks through plant windows and
overturning automobiles in what offi-
cials said was a demonstration against
tool and diemakers who have re-
turned to work during a strike.
Police reserves were called after
the mob visited the plant of the
Koestlin Tool & Die Corporation,
smashing 134 windows, but the men
had sped on to the plant of Frederick
A. Colman & Sons, where they cir-
cled the factory, then drove away
as patrolmen rushed to the place.
The demonstrators then sped to the
Faigle Tool & Die Co. plant, where
they overturned automobiles parked
in a lot near the factory, hurled
bricks through windows, and stormed
the offices. Officials reported the men
seized blueprints and drawings, took
them into the streets and burned
Two met were arrested as reserve
offacers arrived, but they reported the
strkers took the two from them and
drove rapidly away. Orders went out
for the police to use their night-
sticks .on the demonstrators if there
was another clash.
All available police were ordered
to tool and die plants in the city and
all patrolmen off duty were told to re-
port to their various stations at once.
From the Koestlin plant later came
word that the strikers had entered
the offices there, burned blueprints
and frightened office employes, who
fled into the streets.
Shortly after 11:30 a. m. police
rushed to the plant of the F. Joseph
Lamb Co., where the demonstrators,
parking their cars nearby, dashed to
the place and hurled stones through
windows, speeding away before re-
serves arrived.

TOKIO, Oct. 30.-(P)-Minister of
War Sadoa Araki, now in western
Japan for the annual army maneu-
vers, was quoted in Japanese news-
papers today as advocating a parley
on peace.
In an interview, Araki was said to
have announced that he would pro-
pose to the cabinet an international
conference in Tokio for all powers
interested in the Far East.
Japan, China, Manchukuo, Russia,
Great 'Britain, France, Holland and
the United States would be invited,
it was said.
"The Orient has become the cen-
ter of discords involving the whole
world and Japan's recognition of
Manchukuo has inflamed world opin-
ion like oil upon fire," the minister
of war was quoted.
"But," he added, "it would be im-
possible for Japan to turn back on a
course already established concerning
"Treaties alone can not make
peace unless they are based on un-
"A conference of powers interested
in the Far East would give Japan an
opportunity to explain her real mo-
tives in the Manchurian campaigns
and the reason for leaving the League
of Nations."
Then, thernewspapers quotedchim
further, "perhaps other powers could
reach a genuine understanding of,
what has happened in Manchuria-
and eventually recognize Manchu-

NEW YORK, Oct. 30 - UP)-- The
last rites for E. H. Sothern, who de-
voted a lifetime to audiences, will
be performed without one. Broadway
celebrities anxious to do honor to
the memory of the street's great ro-
mantic actor would have filled Man-
hattarl's largest church but Julia
Marlowe has decreed otherwise.
After the news of the 73-year-old
actor's death from pneumonia on
Saturday was made public Sunday,
his wife announced that the services
would be private, attended only by
herself and intimate friends. Even
the time and place of the funeral was
withheld. The body will be cremated.
When Sothern retired in 1930 he
brought to a close a stage career of
half a century. He had started life
as a painter and became the best-
known Shakespearian actor of his
He was born in New Orleans Dec.
6, 1859, the son of an English actor,
Edwin Askew Sothern. His father
determined that Sothern should be
a painter, and educated him accord-
ingly. But the boy succumbed to
the footlight lure in his blood. Suc-
cess was assured when in 1885 Daniel
Frohman asked him to join his fa-
mous Lyceum company as leading
By the time he turned to Shakes-
peare in 1900 he was already a tra-
dition of the stage. In that year he
played Hamlet with success both in
New York and on the road. The
next season he created his famous
role of Francois Villon in "If I Were
King," During the next quarter of
a century it remained perhaps his
most successful vehicle. Another was
"The Prisoner of Zenda."
In 1914 he formed the famous
partnership with Julia Marlowe.
They played together until 1907, in-
cluding a season in London. In 1910
Sothern and his first wife, Virginia
Harned, were divorced and he mar-
ried Miss Marlowe. In 1913 they
announced their retirement, mi-
grated to England and bought a
