On New Deal To First
Meeting Of Institute
Lauds NRA Policy
In Behalf of Labor
Also Commends President
For Choosing Professors
As Economic Advisers
By PAUL J. ELLIOTT
"The right to strike is sacred with
labor," declared Rabbi Barnett Brick-
ner of' Cleveland last night at the
opening session of the second Michi-
gan Labor Institute. Addressing an
audience of Michigan labor leaders
and University economists, Rabbi
Brickner spoke on "The New Deal
and a Changing America."
In comparing the present adminis-
tration with that of Herbert Hoover,
Rabbi Brickner stated that the Hoo-
ver idea was expressed in the time-
worn slogan, "Prosperity is just
around the corner."
Frankly critical of some measures
of the administration, he explained
that most of its measures were ex-
perimental. He said that the Presi-
dent has acted in a general manner
to avoid placing stress on any one
point of our system.-
"Roosevelt may turn out to be
the Kerensky of the present," he
said, referring to the ill-fated leader
of the first Russian Revolution. "But
if this revolution fails, it will go
down as a noble attempt; if it suc-'
ceeds, it is an outstanding achieve-
ment of this age."
Speaker Praises Roosevelt
He praised the President for his
initiative in choosing his advisers
from the ranks of college profes-
sors, "men who are not afraid to
experiment,"' as against the usual
custom of ulsing politicians.
After warning that the NRA move-
ment must not be thought of as the
sum of President Roosevelt's policies,
Rabbi Brickner stated that its pur-
pose was to "flnd a middle-of-the-
road path between communism and
'Morganism.' Before 1929 we thought
we were the Lord's favored children.
Now we see that it is necessary to
create a real partnership between
capital and labor." In praise of
NRA he gave as its accomplishment
on behalf of Labor collective bargain-
ing, controlled competition, and the
abolition of child labor.
Touching on other important mea-
sures, Rabbi Brickner discussed f'arm
relief, banking reform, and national
aid for local charity. He criticized
Hoover's policy of local responsibility
for relief, citing as an example De-
troit, which is unable to care for the
thousands of unemployed who came
there from other cities.
Quotes Estimates
In regard to the cost of National
Recovery Rabbi Brickner quoted esti-
mates ranging upward from 15 bil-
lion dollars. Admitting that this was
an enormous cost, he declared that
the country should shoulder the bur-
den just as it had borne the vastly
larger cost of the World War, which
he believed to be much less impor-
tant than the present crisis.
His final points, foreign and mone-
tary policy, Rabbi Brickner said were
insolubly joined. He decried the po-
sition of critics who declare that the

United States is heading toward the
post-war inflation predicament of
Russia, Germany, andaF r a n c e.
"Rather," he said, "we are heading
toward a policy of reflation, one of
positive buying power."
In conclusion he urged that Labor

Solons Ado pt
Amendment On
LiquorRuling
LANSING, Nov. 23.- (A) -Oppo-
nents of the administration liquor
control bill won a signal victory as
the anticipated attack upon the
measure materialized this afternoon.
In committee of the whole the
House adopted an amendment wiping
out the provision iwf the bill barring
sales of liquor for private profit. It
also cast aside the power of the
state liquor control conmmission to
designate distributors for liquor and
gave the exclusive right aside from
state stores, to sell package spirits to
druggists.
Rep. William A. Ward, (Rep.,
Grand Traverse County), offered the
amendment. It was adopted by a
vote of 46 to 40. It struck from the
bill prepared by the legislative coun-
cil a clause authorizing the sale of
liquor through distributorstobe
designated by the state liquor con-
trol commission. In its place a sec-
tion was inserted requiring the

Derides NRA
For Professing
False Objective
Magil Claims That United
States Is Heading For
War, Fascism
Charges that the NRA has "utterly
failed" in its professed objectives but
that it has succeeded in its true ob-
jectives - the further enslavement of
the working classes - were made last
night by A. B. Magil, editor of the
Auto Workers' News at a forum
sponsored by the National Student
League.
The true objectives of the NRA
were said to be to increase the prof-
its of the capitalist class, to pro-
mote a further "trustification" of
business, and to place the country
on a war footing in preparation for
real war, which was declared to be
not far distant.
Before Mr. Magil spoke, Joseph C.
Hooper, local attorney and chairman
of the local NRA Compliance Board,
outlined the leading principles be-
hind the NRA and discussed its
origin.
'Gap in Objectives'
Mr. Magil charged that the "gap
between the professed and the true
objectives of the NRA presents an
example of duplicity and fraud that
is unequalled since Woodrow Wilson
led us into the World War to 'make
the world safe for Democracy.'"
In support of the contention that
the NRA has not succeeded in rais-
ing the purchasing power of the
working classes, he cited figures
which stated that the result of the
NRA has been to increase the price
level 19 per cent while the wage level
was increased only seven per cent.
Employment is less at the present
than it was one year ago, he said.
"Now we have the NRA; one year
ago we had Hoover and his 'rugged
American individualism.'"
States NRA Purpose
An added objective of the NRA,
Mr. Magil stated, is to establish a
form of Fascism in this country, and
he quoted from an article written by
Italian Premier Benito Mussolini in
which the dictator proclaimed that
the United States is on the road to
Fascism.
Fascism is not inevitable in a cap-
italistic state, he claimed, the pre-
vention of its advent depending on
whether the workers, middle class
laborers, farmers, students, and "in-
tellectuals" can organize to defeat
its purpose.
Preparation for war by the train-
ing of youths in the Civilian Conser-
vation Corps, the spending of more
than a billion dollars in war prep-
aration works, and the establishment
of the NRA along the lines of the
governmental set-up that existed
during the war were also cited as ad-
ditional evidence that the United
States is preparing for war.
Muyskens Speaks

fashion. In his address entitled "The

3 Weeks Before Murder
CHICAGO, Nov. 23 -() -Earle
Wynekoop came home today to make
forthright denial that he fired a bul-
let through the heart of his talented
young wife.
Steadfastly the twenty-seven-year-
old Wynekoop flung back at the po-
ice the denial that he knew who
had killed his wife Rheta, whose
nearly nude body was found on an
operating table, a bullet hole through
her heart, in his mother's surgical
room.
His homecoming from Kansas City
brought into custody Priscilla Wittle,
23 years old, with whom he admitted
intimacies despite protestations of a
happy home life with Rheta.
Miss Wittle, whom he. met at the
World's Fair while both were em-
ployed there last summer, said that
she loved him and had expected to
marry him on his return from the
projected three-months' trips to the
Grand Canyon. She had been with
him on a "date" until 1:30 a. m.
Tuesday, the morning before his wife
was found slain.
Thought He Was Unmarried
She had known him, she said, as
Michael Wynekoop, and thought he
was unmarried.
Earle presented an alibi of having
started, hours before his wife met.
death, for Arizona to take advertis-
ing photographs.
Wynekoop apparently shared his
mother's theory that Rheta was slain
by a moron who attempted to at-
tack her, but that was not the opin-
ion of Chief of Detectives William H.
Schoemaker.
"The solution of the murder, I am
sure. lies between the mother and
the missing (at that time Earle had
not returned from Kansas City) hus-
band,' Schoemaker said.
"Someone In Household"
"We have practically established
that Rheta Wynekoop was killed af-
ter she had partaken of the evening
dinner at the Wynekoop home and
that the murder was committed by
someone in the household."
Coroner Frank J. Walsh announced
that he had learned that Dr. Alice
Wynekoop on Nov. 2 obtained a sec-
ond insurance policy for $1;000 on
Rheta's life, had paid $5 for a two
months' premium, and had made
Earle and his sister, Dr. Catherine
Wynekoop, beneficiaries. A week ago
Dr. Wynekoop bought a $5,000 pol-
icy on Rheta with herself named
beneficiary.
A close police guard was main-
tained over the Wynekoop mansion,
allowing no one to enter or depart.
Among those in technical custody
therein was Dr. Wynekoop, waiting
impatiently to see her son.

"The Extent of the Breakdown"
will be the subject of the first lec-

ry F. Ward, noted liberal and emi-
nent religious and economic writer,
will deliver at 8 p. m. today to the
public in the Presbyterian church
auditorium. He will lecture from the
general theme of the series "Religion
and the Economic Crisis."
His second lecture will be delivered
at 2:30 p. m. Saturday in Lane Hall
auditorium, where he will speak on
"The Type of Society We Want." At
9:30 a. m. Sunday he will give his
third lecture in Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre on "How We Can Get This
Society." "The Task of the Uni-
versity Man orthe Place of theIn-
tellectual in Our Social Life," is the
subject of his final lecture which will
be presented at 8 p. m. Sunday in
Hill Auditorium.
Is Compared To Keynes -
In characterizing Dr. Ward the
Rev. Frederick B. Fisher, pastor of
the Methodist Episcopal church here,
stated that Ward is without a su-
perior in the world in the whole eco-
nomic field. "He reminds me," said
Mr. Fisher, "Of J. M. Keynes, the
great British economist who was eco-
nomic adviser at the Versailles Peace
Conference. He thinks that Ward's
particular forte is his constructive
rather than destructive teachings.
He builds his speeches upon a firm
foundation and then carries themI
to a logical conclusion. "What par-
ticularly impresses me about Ward,"
concluded Mr. Fisher, "is that heI
is an idealist. He takes into ac-1
count every human factor yet holds
to idealism and not to the passion
of the moment.
Prof. Roy W. Sellars of the phi-
losophy department made the fol-
lowing statement about Dr. Ward:
"He is a lecturer and writer of note.
He has been an instructor of Chris-
tian ethics at Union Theological
Seminary for many years. It is the
social aspect of religion which he
stresses and I am sure that he will
be found a stimulating speaker."
To Be Honored At Banquet
At 6 p. m. Dr. Ward will be hon-
ored at a banquet in the Presbyterian
church. Tickets are priced at 40
cents for the dinner, which is open
to the public. At 12 noon Saturday
faculty members are holding a lunch-
eon in his honor. All faculty mem-
bers are invited to attend the lunch-
eon, reservation to be made through
the Union before Saturday noon.
It is expected that Dr. Ward will
recount his experiences in Russia
during the past year when he and
his son. Lynd Ward, an artist, spent
eight months working their way
through Russia as wood-joiners so
that he could study Russian Soviet
culture conditions. His latest book
"In Place of Profit" is a record of
his experiences on the journey.

Late President

Hurrey Says Angell Was
Responsible For Large
Number At Michigan
James Burrill Angell, former presi-
dent of the University and at one
time United States Minister to Chi-
na, did much to make Michigan
the outstanding school for Chinese
students in this country, Charles D.
Hurrey, '00, world wide traveller and
general secretary of the committee
on friendly relations with foreign
students, stated in an interview yes-
terday. Dr. Hurrey is on the cam-
pus directing the activities of his
organization among the foreign stu-
dents at Michigan.
"It is interesting to note that un-
til recently there were more than
10,000 foreign students in America,"
Dr. Hurrey pointed out, "represent-
ing over 100 nations from every part
of the world. However, the exchange
of students is too much one way, with
few American students going abroad."
In the recognition of Russia, the
United States has done much to sta-
bilize the Far-Eastern situation, in
his opinion. Seeing an old enemy,
Russia, on one hand, and a possible
new one on the other, the United
States, once again on friendly rela-
tions, will make Japan hesitate be-
fore taking any rash action, he said.
"The imperialistic policy of Japan
man be justified to a certain extent,
in that she is confronted with a
treat economic problem, that of find-
ng room and food for her people; a
problem in which the other nations
aave done nothing to aid her," Dr.
Hurrey continued. "Japan will do
more for China than she could ever
:o for herself, in the sanitation of
the country, the building of roads,
and other similar projects.
"In America we have our Monroe
Doctrine, to which Japan points as a
parallel. However, we doubt if the
lack of unity in China is sufficient
reason for the invasion," he con-
cluded.
In a discussion before the Chinese
students, Dr. Hurrey made known
his feelings for a quota for the Chi-
nese, a chance for oriental students
to gain practical experience in the
United States after graduation, and
i fair opportunity for them to see
American life.I

Board Of Representatives
To Discuss Situation At
Meeting Today
Change Wanted By
Co-eds, Poll Shows
Want 1:30 A. M. Hours
Saturday; 11:30 Sun-
day; Later Senior Hours
By CAROL J. HANAN
Possible changes in women's hours
will be brought before the Board of
Representatives at its next meeting,
it was announced last night by Ruth
Robinson, '34, president. The meet-
ing will be held Tuesday of next week.
The all-campus vote held last week
by the Undergraduate Council indi-
cated that the women students desire
a modification of the existing rules.
Several members of the women's self-
governing body last night stated that
the matter will be given full consid-
eration before that group.
The changes which will be brought
up for consideration are: 1:30 a. m.
on Saturdays; 11:30 p. m. on Sun-
days; and late permission for seniors
on one night each week. The last al-
ternative was not voted upon in the
all-campus election but a group of
senior women are backing the move-
ment, it was learned last night.
Arguments Listed
The reasons for and against the
suggestions for changes were said to
be numerous. The 11:30 Sunday night
permission was asked on the grounds
that it is impossible to see a second
show and be home on time under
present rulings. The arguments
against such a change, as brought up
in authoritative circles, are two-fold:
first, that on Monday classes are
numerous anti sufficient rest on Mon-
day nights is essential; and second,
that the theatres miight lengthen
their programs to extend beyond clos-
ing time so that even later hours will
be required.
The last argument was made in
view of the fact that several years
ago the Sunday night closing hour
was 10:30 and that a half-hour was
extended to enable students to at-
tend the second show and return in
time for the closing hours. Soon after
this change the theatre managers ex-
tended their program, and it is feared
that this might happen again.
Saturday Classes Interfere
The extra hour extended for Satur-
day night involves the fact that many
students have Saturday morning
classes and would prefer to have 1:30
a. m. permission on Saturday, even
at the expense of changing the hours
to 12:30 p. m. on Friday. The oppo-
sition to the change is that a city
ordinance stops all dancing on Satur-
day night at 12, also a possible argu-
ment is religious differences. It was
brought to the attention of those dis-
cussing the changes, however, that
half an hour after dances on Satur-
day night is an insufficient period to
eat and return home and a sugges-
tion has been made to extend the
hour to 1 a. m.
The faculty are dividedgon the
question of extended closing hours,
some believing that it would tend to
affect scholarship, others entirely fa-
voring the change.
Discloses Lack
Of Sanitation In
Eating Places
An investigation which has been
carried on by Dr. Lloyd R. Gates, in-
structor in hygiene and public health,

and sanitarian to the Health Service,
has disclosed that of the numerous
eating places in the vicinity of the
campus, there are some in which the
sanitary conditions are not of the
best.
As a result of the poor conditions
in some of the cheaper boarding
houses and restaurants, several cases
of food poisoning have been reported
to the Health Service. But the mere
fact that a boarding house maintains
cheap rates does not imply lack of
cleanliness or care, Dr. Gates said.
In most cases, the factors of lack of

Dec. 6.
A number of the departments
which have been incorporated in the

gone farthest to make this year's
Gargoyle one of the most successful
in its history will be retained.
These three include Preposterous

In place of the exchange jokes,
which have been run in the two pre-

several columns relating humorous
campus incidents will be substituted.
