Epstein Talks
At Dinner Of
Press Grou p
(Continued from Page 1)
about conditions and this is not the
function of papers," he added. "Our
communities need an organ which will
inform them of social conditions,
and the schools, by means of social
science and better co-operation of
our modern facilities will perform
this function," he concluded.
"There are three major defects in
our present civilization which must
be removed before civilization can be
changed. They are defects in equality,
liberty and education," Prof. Stuart
A. Courtis of the School of Education,
stated.
"To accomplish this our education
methods must be changed. Our pres-
ent system needs to be modernized,
as the schools of the future must
teach the students to interpret life.
We must arrive at the point where
the individual will be taught to deal
intelligently with any situation," he
said.
Mr. Epstein told the editors that it
was their fault that the old age pen-
sion was not adopted long ago. He
stated that due to ignorance and
narrow-mindedness on the part of
the newspapers the people were mis-
led. The dole in England, contrary
to most reports, he stated, is success-
ful because of this law, and for the
last three years England has been
affected less by this crisis than the
United States. In conclusion he urged
the editors to support this movement
and realize the good it could do for
the country.

Soviet Commissar Confers With Hull

Sun Is Not Likely
To Flare Up, Says
Prof. McLaughlin
The theory that the sun might at
some time undergo a flare-up similar
to that of Nova Ophiuchi, the star
whose temporary flare-up was dis-
covered a few months ago, is rele-
gated to the realm of improbability,
in the opinion of Prof. Dean B. Mc-
Laughlin of the University Observa-
tory.
Professor McLaughlin develops the
idea that stars undergoing "nova be-
havior," belong to a formerly un-
recognized type of "variable" star.
Proof of this, he believes, is shown
by the fact that these stars, which
are subject to brief periods of bright-
ness, are quite surely repeaters. How-
ever, if the periods between flare-
ups are longer than the length of
time astronomical observations have
been taken, there is still a probability
that the sun among other stars might
be in this new variable group. How-
ever, since known flare-ups occur
from 12 to 35 years apart, this is
doubtful. Professor McLaughlin says.

Pink Mail Cards Should
Be Filled Out By Students
Students who have not filled out
"pink" cards giving their full address
at the postoffice are ,probably not
getting much of the mail which is
adressed to them in care of the Uni-
versity, according to A. C. Pack, post-
master.
Mr. Pack made a request yester-
day, that all students secure cards
at either the post office or any of
the branches, fill them out, and drop
them into any letter box.
Science itself is now discarding the
Newtonian concepts. Economics is
becoming humanized. But education
continues to devote its energies to
gathering facts and is scornful of
"mere opinion."-Dr. James F. Hosic,
professor of education at Columbia
University.

NAL is business and financial

Crossing of social and economic
interests is one of the greatest diffi-
culties to the administration of the
recovery policy, according to Donald]
R. Richberg, general counsel for the
NRA, who spoke at the n-orning
meeting.
Arbitrary standards, while work-
ing more hardship on some individu-
als than on others, are justified by
such a crisis as we are passing
through, he said. "It has -been a
more trying experience and a prob-
lem more vital to solve than was the
World War," he declared.
"Unless we are to yield to a phi-
losophy of futility, the 'new deal'
merits our most whole-hearted sup-
port," Prof. I. L. Sharfman, chair-
man of the economics department,
said, speaking after Mr. Richberg.
While, he said, there is no basis
for any final judgment at this time,
the recovery aspect of the President's
program is significant as a positive
step and the pace of recovery should
become increasingly more rapid.
"Usually we have merely muddled
through our depressions," he said.
'But this time conditions were so
bad that we were on the verge of a
complete breakdown of oureconomic
system and our social institutions
were menaced. The panic of Febru-
ary and March was effectively stayed
by the Roosevelt program, and one
could feel the immediate restoration
in confidence."~
Judge Arthur Lacy, who was to
have spoken on "The Banking Situ-
ation," was unable to be present.
The four-day meeting of the Press
Club will close with a single session
at 9 a. m. today in the Union. Five
speakers will be heard on the gen-
eral topic of "Crime and Racketeer-
ing." They are Malcolm Bingay, edi-
tor of the Detroit Free Press, Albert
M. Ewert, chaplain of Michigan State
Prison, Prof. Arthur E. Wood of the
sociology department, Capt. Edward
Denniston, superintendent of the De-
troit House of Correction, Plymouth,
and Warden Peter Gray of Michigan
State Prison.
Members of the Press Club will be
guests of the University at the Iowa
football game this afternoon.

Several days ago when the annual
Official Financial Report of the Uni-
,versity made its appearance on cam-
pus, many studied its pages for a rec-
ord of the business transactions of
the past year, and still others
scanned it less thoroughly. Few of
these people knew anything of the
.interesting story of its development
and the process of making it.
Anyone looking at the 75 large and
closely printed pages, 50 of them
crowded full of figures, the remainder
being taken up with descriptions of
special trust funds and general com-
ments on the financial transactions
of the year, would quite naturally be
impressed by the tremendous amount
of work which the formulation of
such a report would seem to entail.
"The surprising fact about this
data," stated Dr. Frank E. Robbins,
assistant to the President, "is its size
compared with the time spent in its
compilation, for, although, of course,
one does not get together and print
a collection of figures like this with-
out some labor, it has come to be a
thing which the business office, so to
speak, takes in its stride."
"It is in the making throughout
the year; at the close of each day's
business all the vouchers dealt with
are classified not only under the pro-
per departmental account but also by
the type of expenditure (salaries,

instruction, or whatever it may be) ,"
he explained.
After the close of the year, all that
remains to be done to finish the task
of compiling the report is the proper
arranging of the totals taken from
the University's books. The only dif-
ficult task is, in reality, the closing
out of all accounts on time, in order
that the data may accurately repre-
sent the transactions of the year.
The report is then checked by a
firm of certified accountants, who
go over the books independently.
Since 1924, the certificate of such a
firm has been attached to each one.
A picture of the complexity of the
sort of accounts that are kept for
the report, Dr. Robbins said, maytbe
gained from statistics issued by the
business office. They report that dur-
ing the school year 1932-33, the de-
partment handled 32,186 orders, of
which 75 per cent were outside, and
46,305 vouchers were passed, of which
only approximately 4,000 were in-
side transactions.
"It is a well-planned financial re-
port (expert accountants have told
us so) and its myriad figures, if
scanned with understanding, give an
accurate picture of one of .America's
great universities in action," he con-
cluded.
Rivalry between planets will be the
next great force to mold a world

Fifteen years ago the world ended a horrible
period of war with the signing of the Armistice.
Today as we think back over those awful events,
let us pledge ourselves to keep an everlasting
peace.
