Boo Anti-Roosevelt


By Schalll

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Nov. 29 -
(IP) -When U. S. Senator Thomas
D. Schall spoke of the president as
"Frankenstein Roosevelt" in an ad-
dress before students and faculty of
the University of Minnesota, he was
greeted with loud boos.
Calling the NRA the National Ruin
Act, Senator Schall asserted that
Lincoln and Washington would turn
over in their graves at NRA activi-
ties, which he asserted were being
pushed "with the government con-
trolling newspapers, radio and mov-
More boos greeted this assertion.
The senator went on:
"We could have raised tariff bar-
riers and have had every man back
at work within a few months, but as
long as the NRA continues to last,
everything is going to remain back-
Asked by a listener to explain what
he meant by "Frankenstein Roose-
velt," the senator said: "I was not
referring to the manhimself but to
the machine which he has built up."

Menefee Talks
To Members Of
Emphasizes Importance
Of A Trained Electorate
And Intelligent Voting
The place of the engineer in pres-
ent social and political life was the
subject of a speech given by Prof.
F. N. Menefee of the engineering
college before Sigma Rho Tau, en-
3ineering stump speaker's society.
Professor Menefee emphasized the
necessity of a trained body in the
electorate able to understand and
vote intelligently on problems which
the engineer is especially fitted to
cope with.
The Hoover Dam and the Tennes-
see Valley project were cited as ex-I
amples of the complexity of modern
problems which a majority of the
American people understand very
little. Prof. Menefee contrasted the
modern system of government con-
trol with the old "laissez-faire" type
of government, which exerted little
or no control over the individuals'
The present position of the partial-
ly socialized government he ac-
counted for by pointing out the grad-
ual development of natural resources
and the growing inter-dependence of
economic factors. Today, he said,
corruption and graft in government
has an immediate effect on the in-
dividual and it is for this reason that
a portion of the electorate must be
fitted to deal with many of the major
engineering problems which the gov-
ernment undertakes.
Professor Menefee also lauded the
Stump Speaker's Society for enabling
the engineer to speak as well as

There is one class whose members
would overflow even the largest class
room, a class that meets and dis-
misses on the exact second, but a
class that is rarely, if ever, even
seen by the University student. That
class is the musical instruction pe-
riod given by Prof. Joseph E. Maddy
over the University radio hour three
times each week from the Ann Arbor
studio of WJR in Morris Hall. From
the few trips that Professor Maddy
has been able to make so far this
year, he estimates that over 100
schools are receiving instruction in
this manner.
In the University studio, with

Chauffeur, Mistaken For
Chicago Union Leader,
Is Held Several Hours
CHICAGO, Nov. 29. - (P) - Kid-
napers had to be content with $11
today instead of the $20,000 they de-
manded because police said they
made a mistake in identity and ab-
ducted the intended victim's chauf-
The whole affair was over in two
hours Tuesday night and aside from
disturbing the slumber of Thomas E.
Maloy, head of the Motion Picture
IOperators' union, and costing George
Graham, 28, his chauffeur, $11 and
some anxious moments, it had no
other immediate effects.
However, police said they saw in
it an attempt to abduct Maloy him-
self or his son, a student at Morgan
Park Military academy. Graham was
seized early in the evening while put-
ting the Maloy automobile in the
garage at the rear of the residence on
the southside.
He had just returned from driving
Mrs. Maloy to Racine, Wis., and she
witnessed the kidnaping from the
rear door. Several gunmen she told
police, forced the chauffeur into an-
other car. Later, before he turned up
again at the Maloy residence, Maloy
himself received several telephone
calls demanding $20,000 ransom.
High School Debaters
In Preliminary Round
Two rounds of the preliminary de-
bates have been completed by the
Michigan High S c h oo1 Debating
League, according to James H. Mc-
Burney, manager.
The last of the preliminary de-
bates will be completed on Jan. 12
and 64 teams who have made the
most impressive records of the 175
original entrants, will start the elim-
ination series Feb. 16, which includes
five inter-school debates for each

members of the School of Music to
assist him, Professor Maddy teaches
his class. In an outer studio, which
he can observe, is a typical class,
which, however, cannot see him. This
class gets all of its instruction over
a radio in the front of the group.
By observing the mistakes of this
class, Professor Maddy can correct+
them immediately, and thus faciltate
the teaching.
To assist the teachers of the va-
rious groups out in the state, and
the pupils themselves, a booklet with
illustrations of the correct positions
to hold the instruments, along with
other helpful hints is published and
sent to the classes. Instruction is
not only given in the playing of both
stringed and wind instruments, but
also in singing.
"Musical instruction is given to
many schools through this medium,
who could not otherwise afford it,"
Professor Maddy stated. "While it is
generally used in smaller schools,
larger cities also take advantage of
the program, as is shown by the large
classes in Flint.
"Many bands have been formed
throughout the state, many times
composing over half of the school.
Because schools in the northern pen-,
insula have trouble in getting the,
program, the broadcast of such edu-
cational features by WJR is a strong+
argument in their favor to secure a
strongerstation," Professor Maddy
Voters Revolt
Against Reign
Of Huey Long
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 29-()- .
Senator Huey Long was faced today+
with open revolt by voters who pro-
tested against an attempt to place1
a Long-picked candidate in a vacant
congressional seat.;
Even while Long was making an
uproarious appearance before a sen-
ate investigating committee here,
citizens in the Sixth congressional+
district took steps to oppose the+
"Kingfish." their action culminating
in a mass meeting in Baton Rouge
Tuesday night where speakers called1
for an "overthrow of Hitlerism in;
The protesting citizens obtained a
court order to halt a special election
set for next Tuesday at which Mrs.
Bolivar E. Kemp, the Long candi-
date, was slated for an unopposed
election. The group also called an
election for Dec. 27 to nominate a
representative by popular vote, an-
nouncing that all candidates would
have until Dec. 8 to file their candi-
dacies. The court order against next
Tuesday's election was made return-
able Monday when state officials will
be required to show cause why the
injunction should not be made per-
Long's appearance before the sen-
ate committee looking into the elec-
tion of Senator John H. Overton
brought an uproar from spectators
as Long placed witnesses on the
stand to refute "hearsay testimony
and untruths" against himself and
then took the stand to make an ora-
torical attack on his enemies and
vindicate his own actions.
R. D. Blumenfeld, chairman of the
board of the London Daily Express,

R. C. Holmes Writes
Forestry Bulletin
The third bulletin in a series of
publications initiated by the School
of Forestry and Conservation to pre-
sent the results of investigations by
the Bureau of Forest Research has
been recently printed by the Univer-
sity Press. The Bulletin deals with
"Post-Logging Decadence in North-
ern Hardwoods," by Ralph C. Holmes',
assistant entomologist in the United
States Department of Agriculture
and former junior instructor here..
The bulletin, according to the fore-
word written by Dean S. T. Dana
of the School of Forestry, presents
the results of a three-year investi-
gation of the extensive deterioration
that commonly takes place in north-
ern hardwoods after logging opera-
tions. Originally undertaken with
a view to determining primarily the
role of the bronze birch borer in post-
logging decadence, the study has
demonstrated that the borer is or-
dinarily a secondary enemy and that
the primary cause of such decadence
lies in the changes of the physical
factors of the environment brought
about by cutting. These findings em-
phasize the fact that "selection, cut-
ting," which is now being widely ad-
vocated as a method of cutting suita-
ble for almost universal application,
has its weaknesses, and that to be
effective it must be used with skill
and discrimination.
