Over 175 high schools throughout

sity and the Detroit Free Press, gets
under way today.
Following the preliminary schedule
of four debates for each high school,
the 64 schools throughout the state
having the best records will enter
an elimination tournament which
will culminate in the state champion-
ship debate in Hill Auditorium April

Unlucky Deans Are
Raked By R.O.T.C.
Machine Gun Fire
They flipped a coin to see whether
Gilbert E. (Peko) or Dean Joseph E.
Bursley should be put on the spot.
And Dean Bursley lost.
Along with Dean Alice C. Lloyd,
Prof. Paul M. Cuncannon, and As-
sistant Dean Walter B. Rea, the un-
lucky dean faced a firing squad com-
posed of an entire junior R.O.T.C.
class. Coldly vindictive, these marks-
men set out, and in a business-like
way, moreover, to riddle these tar-
gets, under which they had legibly
printed the names of their human
For some reason or other, the tar-
get labeled Dean Bursley drew the1
most volleys. But according to one
of the members of the class, "the
others could take it."
The firing range where these fig-
urative executions took place a week
ago Thursday is in a gravel pit near
Jackson. Uniforms had just been
issued, and the juniors crouched over
their machine guns and shivered in
their new creaking boots. Sitting on
frozen ground is no picnic, they
found out, but they assiduously fired
their bursts into the little black paper
The targets were mounted on a
white background at a distance of
1,000 inches (27.777 yards to you).
Little strips of black paper about 15
by 3 inches representing the faculty
members were pasted four in a row
on the background.
They fired burst after burst, in-
creasing the elevation at each firing.
The faculty members were well per-

Four Lectures
To Be Offered
By Theologian
'Religion And Economic
Crisis' To Be Theme Of
Dr. Ward's Lectures
Dr. Harry F. Ward, eminent theo-
logian and champion of labor and the
social creed, will deliver four lectures
on the general theme "Religion and
the Economic Crisis" in a three day
conference, acclaimed by many as
the outstanding religious project of
the year, which will begin Friday,
Nov. 24.
The conference is being held in
conjunction with the State Student
Young Men's Christian Association
and 100 delegates from all of the col-
leges in Michigan are expected to at-
Dr. Ward's first lecture on "The
Extent of the Breakdown" will be
delivered at 7:30 p. m. in the Pres-
byterian church auditorium. At 2:30
p. in. Saturday he will lecture on
"The Type of Society We Want" in
Lane Hall Auditorium.
In place of the regular Freshman
Round Table discussions at 9:30 a.
in. Sunday Dr. Ward's third lecture
will be heard at Lydia Mendelssohn
The final address of the lecture
series will be heard at an all-Uni-
versity convocation to be held at 8
p. m. Sunday in Hill Auditorium.
All of Dr. Ward's lectures are open
to the general public and no admis-
sion will be charged. According to
Sherwood A. Messner, '34, president
of the Student Christian Association,
a great deal of expense has been in-
curred in bringing Dr. Ward here and
the sponsors are asking that volun-
tary offerings be given at each lec-
ture to cover expenses.
Dr. Ward is endorsed by many
prominent members of the faculty
as well as members of Ann Arbor
religious circles. Among these are
Prof. Roy W. Sellars, of the philoso-
phy department, Prof. Leroy Water-
man, of the department of oriental
languages and literatures, Dr. George
E. Myers, professor of Vocational.
Education and Guidance, Dr. How-
ard E. Chapman, president of the
Council of Religion, and Rev. Har-
old P. Marley, president of the Ann
Arbor Ministerial Association.

Recommends Direct Action In

Recommendation that debt bur-
dens be eased by dikect action rather
than by attempts to raise the whole
price level was made by Dr. Vladimir
P. Timoshenko of the economics de-
partment in an interview yester-
He pointed out that one of the
primary reasons for the present at-
tempt on the part of the president
to restore the 1926 price level is so
that debts may be repaid in dollars
of the same value as those in which
they were contracted.
Especially in the case of the farm-
er, he said, is relief from debt bur-
dens an absolute necessity. Outright
scaling down of debts would do more
to improve the position of the farmer
than the program now in progress to
change prices by monetary manipu-
lation, he declared.
"The rise in agricultural prices

Four line. No passengers were killed
and the injured list was not seri-

ment of farm production is in itself
a right policy," he said. "But there
is a danger in that it is very diffi-
cult to enforce control on 6,000,000
farmers, each of whom has an in-
centive in higher prices to attempt
to evade the restrictions and pro-
duce more."
The farmer temporarily could live
largely on a basis of self-sufficiency
if it were not for fixed money obli-
gations which he must meet in the
case of debts and taxes, Dr. Timo-
shenko said.
"The theory behind the adminis-
tration program is that the restora-
tion of the 1926 price level will cor-
rect also the price relationships for
separate groups of commodities," he
explained. "However, there is no as-
surance that such automatic adjust-
ments will take place.
"At least it is difficult to expect
that agricultural prices will be raised
to a more equitable level. For this
reason the AAA policy of controlling
agricultural production for the pur-
pose of raising prices is quite neces-
sary. But the possibility of enforce-
ment remains doubtful."
Farm prices had risen considerably
in proportion to other prices prior
to the inception of the NRA in Au-
gust, and the structure of the price
system approached more closely a
normal, Dr. Timoshenko said, but
since that time, through the rise of
industrial prices, the farmer has lost
all he had previously gained.

Owe Much In Culture To

"Modern inhabitants of North
imerica owe much in culture and
.stitutions to the original Indians,"
r. Carl E. Guthe, director of the
[useum of Anthropology, said yes-
erday in the second of the Univer-
ty series of lectures.
Tracing the development and civ-
ization of the Indians in North
merica, Dr. Guthe showed a num-
er of slides illustrating phases of
rcheological work and showing past
orkmanship of the Indians in the
)uthwest, Mississippi, and woodlands
Dr. Guthe gave a short his-
ry and explanation of Archeology
i the United States as a preiace to

ogists were limited by their data
ad that relics, commonly associated
ith this form of science, were of
o value unless accompanied by in-

The two major problems confront-
g the North American archeologists
:e, according to Dr. Guthe, the
termination of the antiquity of
ie red race in this country and
eir development of civilization. It
as been established that humans
ave been in this country more than
),000 years and possibly as many
a 30,000 years, he continued.
"The Indians were unfortunately
terrupted in their progress at a
eriod corresponding to Eurpean
vilization 2,000 years ago," Dr.
uthe said, "the white man usurped
e names, village sites, and inven-
ons of the Indians much more than
iey realize today."

It would delight you to open a
Lucky Strike and examine the
long, golden strands of fine tobac-
cos. To notice how fully packed
it is ... how free from annoying
loose ends. Every Lucky Strike
is a blend of the world's choicest
Turkish and Domestic tobaccos-
finely shredded-long and evenly
cut. That's why every Lucky draws
so easily - burns so smoothly.
