U. S. Isolation
Not Feasible,
Slosson States
The United States should Co-
operate with the rest of the world
through entering the League of Na
tions and the World Court, Prof. Pres-
ton W Slosson of the history depart-

ment declared yesterday afternoon
at a meeting of the Tolstoy League
in N a t u r a l Science Auditorium.
Professor Slosson said the world had
"suffered a severe set-back" as a
result of the defection of Japan and
Germany from the League of Nations.
Isolation is impossible with the
airplane, and other means of rapid
communication, Professor Slosson de-
clared. To keep out of foreign en-
tanglements we would have to go to
the moon, he said, and if war should
break out our political isolation would
be nullified by our loss of trade, and
this might draw us into the war.

Supreme Court Acts On Case

Of' Negro

Guilty Of Attack'

DECATUR, Ala., Dec. 5 - OP) -
Retrial of five Negroes in the Scotts-
boro attack case was postponed today
pending supreme court decisions on
Heywood Patterson's conviction as a
Morgan County jury .continued de-
liberations on conviction or acquital
for Clarence Norris, second of the
seven defendants to be tried.
Patterson was convicted last week
for his alleged part in an attack on
Mrs. Victoria Price and Ruby Bates,
Huntsville, Ala., mill workers, on a
freight train in northern Alabama.
He was sentenced to death for the
third time.
Samuel S. Leibowitz, chief of the
defense counsel supplied by the In-
ternational Labor Defense today sug-
gested postponement of the other
trials after saying he would appeal
the Patterson conviction to the Ala-
bama supreme court and later to the
United States supreme court if the
state's highest judicial body upheld
the lower court.
Leibowitz indicated the appeal
would be taken on constitutional
grounds, contending the defense
would again charge negroes were ex-
cluded from juries in Alabama, "sole-
ly because of race and color." Mo-

Galens Society
Drive Paised
By Dr. Ruthven
FIrst Day Of Annual 'ag
Sale y Medical Group
Nets More Than $600
"I can imagine no more worthy
cause than that for which the Galens
Society is conducting its annual
drive," President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven said in an announcement issued
yesterday. "I hope that those who are
able will support the program of the
society again this year as they have
so willingly in the past."
The first day of the annual tag sale
drive of the Galens Medical Society
netted between $600 and $700, or a
little more than half of the $1,200
goal, according to Samuel A. Fiegel,
'34M, president of the society, who
voiced the appreciation of the Galens
Society for the support which stu-
dents have afforded the drive.
The main idea of the sale is to
have everyone wearing a tag, and
not to gain large contributions, it was
said. Leaders of Galens expressed the
hope that the drive will be equally
well supported today, the last day of
the sale.
Women's Gle e
Club Will Offer
Recital TIoni aht

By THOMAS H. KLEENE
Vigorously assailing the provisions
of what he termed the "antiquated
food and drug laws of 1906," as en-
tirely inadequate, W. B. Simmons, of-
ficial representative of the Depart-
ment of Agriculture, yesterday after-
noon strongly advocated the enaction
of the proposed Copeland Act, de-
signed to further protect the con-
sumer.
"Loopholes left in the existing leg-
islation make it possible for manufac-
turers to retail legitimately any prod-
ucts not making false statements on
the label. The administration has no
control whatsoever over guarantees
made in pamphlets, over the radio or
in collateral advertising," Mr. Sim-
mons said. He declared that the pro-
posed act would, however, definitely
eliminate this unethical practice.
Offenders Not Punishable
In the case of one so-called "rem-
edy" for sugar diabetes, the prosecu-
tion was able to prove the claims of
the manufacturers were false, but the
offenders were not punished because
it could not be established that they
knew their medicine was a fake, Mr.
Simmons said. This, too, would be
done away with by the Copeland Act,
which places the burden of proof
squarely on the shoulders of the
maker, he said.
Commenting on another serious ill
of the present laws, Mr. Simmons
stated that the pena y fearo- nin-g
thousands of people all over the
country with a certain product was
only an assessment of $200, which
is almost the maximum penalty. "The
new bill would, however, provide a
much str.icter punishment, which can
be much more readily enforced," he
added.
The speaker cited a number of
other products now being sold at
great risk to the public, which would
be eliminated from the market with
the enaction of the new bill. "Fake
tuberculosis cures, remedies contain-
ing thyroid extract, and the enclosing
of prizes in candy packages would all
be ruled out under the proposed act,"
he said.

observer, author, and journalist, has
accepted an invitation to deliver the

mencement exercises in June, it was
announced yesterday by Dr. Frank E.
Robbins, assistant to President Ruth-
ven.
Authorities here were extremely
grateful to have been able to secure
his services for the occasion, as he
has an enviable reputation as a
speaker. Through his connections as
former associate editor of the New
Republic and his syndicated column
he has become known throughout the
entire nation.
Mr. Lippmann graduated from
Harvard University with the class of
1910 and spent a year in graduate
work there also. From June to Oc-
tober in 1917 he was assistant to the
Secretary of War, and following this
was secretary of the organization di-
rected by Col. E. M. House to prepare
data for the Peace Conference. He
held the rank of captain in the
military intelligence division of the
United States Army.
He is a member of the American
academy of Political and Social
Science, and of Phi Beta Kappa.

that he has written are: "A Preface
to Politics," "The Political Scene,"

lic," and "Men of Destiny." In addi-
tion he is a contributor to the At-
lantic Monthly, Harpers, Vanity Fair,

'Columbia Lion In
circus', Spectator
Editorial Declares
NEW YORK, Dec. 5 - (M)- The
Columbia Spectator, student daily of
Columbia University, today deplored
acceptance of the invitation for the
football team to play Stanford in
the Rose Bowl game New Year's Day.
"Columbia University had its
chance yesterday to show conclusive-
ly that intercollegiate football here
is not a public spectacle for profit,"
The Spectator said editorially. "It
had its chance to stand out above
any institution in the United States
as pre-eminently a university de-
voted to the advancement of learn-
ing,and research. By permitting the
football team to strike out for Pasa-
dena it has repudiated its own stan-
dards."
The editorial went on to say that
the trip of the football team would
interfere seriously with basketball, as
several of the players also are on
the court squad, and declared the
whole venture was a step backward
in "placing intercollegiate football one
a sane and decent level."
"The Lion has joined the circus,"
the editor said in conclusion.

J. Ham' Is Sorry
He Didn't Show Up
EL PASO, Texas, Dec. 5. - (P) -
Senator J. Hamilton Lewis of Illinois
is sorry he disappointed audiences in
Springfield, Mo., and Dallas, Texas,
but he just had to see Secretary
Woodin.
The bewhiskered and sartorially
splendid "J. Ham" explained it here
today as he nursed a cold and spec-
ulated as to whether he could speak
tomorrow night as scheduled.
Associates in Chicago had ex-
pressed concern at not hearing from
the senator for several days and be-
came worried when he failed to ap-
pear for engagements to speak on
the NRA at Springfield last night and
in Dallas tonight.

Plan To Release Medi
Liquor For Consumpti
By General Public
WASHINGTON, Dec. 5.-- (A
With a dash of ceremony, the t
convention late today wrote an
to National Prohibition in a de
that opened the doors of liquor s]
in 18 states.
Almost half a dozen other st
were completing plans for legali
sale under their own laws. The
mainder of the nation remained
Word that Utah - the 36th stat
had ratified repeal, was flashet
Washington a few hours after Pe
sylvania and Ohio. But a little lE
the final formalities were compl
with issuance of proclamations by
State Department and Presit
Roosevelt declaring Prohibition a
end.
There was little Ceremony at
signing of the Presidential or
State Department proclamations,
in wet states and some dry ones t.
were celebrations.
It found the Federal governr
prepared to control the flow of lic
in wet states, through a virtual
tatorship over the industry, ant
protect the arid ones. Several of
18 states where liquor could be
immediately, however, were witl
regulations.
In a hurried effort to meet the
mand and thereby thwart the b
legger the government decided tc
to allow large importations of An
ican type Bourbon and rye whis
from Canada. It also planned to
lease for beverage purposes med
liquor held in bonded warehouses
customs houses.
A move of the International
form Federation to block the issu:
f the repeal proclamation was
jected in the District of Colun
Supreme Court, when Justice F. D
inson Letts rejected a petition
by Canon William Sheafe ChasE
Brooklyn, N. Y., on the ground t
was no basis for the action. He r
repeal was effective upon ratificE
ay the 36 states and not through
-roclamation.
Repeal was brought about thrc
;he convention system, autho:
.nder the Constitution, but used
;he first time in this case. The E
.eenth Amendment is the first t
;jected from the Constitution ir
aistor.y of the Republic.
Thirty-three states, beginning
1ichigan, had ratified the Twe
First Amendment previously. P
;ylvania's delegates were the fir
:atify today. Ohio soon follc
Jtah had determined to have
Thirty-sixth position.

First Concert Of Season. Is
Termed Forward Step In
Choral Activities
The initial concert of the Univer-
sity Women's Glee Club 1933-34 sea-
son, to be presented at 8:30 p. m.
today in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre,
marks a forward advance in its choral
activities. Formerly, pointed out Max-
ine Maynard, '35, president, the Glee
Club has emphasized classical num-
bers and folk songs in its recitals,
but this year a greater number of
popular contemporary compositions
will be included.
Three groups of numbers will be
sung under the direction of Margaret
Martindale, '34SM, student director,
assisted by Margaret Kimball, '34SM,
accompanist. The organization is
sponsored this year by Prof. Earl V.
Moore and Prof. Palmer Christian.
Honorary patronesses include Dean
Alice Lloyd, Mrs. Alfred H. White,
Mrs. Harry Bacher, Miss Nora Crane
Hunt, and Miss Ethel McCormick.
The first group of numbers in-
cludes: Behold the Sun Up-Soaring,
by Wolfgang Mozart; two choruses
from L'Allegro, by Handel, and three
love songs by Johannes Brahms. The
second group is composed of Angels
and Shepherds, a Bohemian carol;
Shepherd's Christmas Song, an Aus-
trian Folk song, and Glory to God in
the Highest, a composition by Gio-
vanni Pergolesi.
The third group includes four songs
by modern composers: Music When
Soft Voices Die, by Clarence Dickin-

Cites Instances ,
A typical instance of the effect of
these cures is seen in the case of a
prominent man who drank a quantity
of a preparation containing radio-
active water as a remedy for stomach
disorders, and died a horrible death
with the bones in his jaw entirely dis-
integrated, Mr. Simmons stated.
Cosmetics would also be brought
under the scope of the laws for the
first time, he declared, although they
have not heretofore been considered
dangerous. However, it was recently
discovered that many of them con-
tain lead, which is slowly absorbed by
the system resulting in chroniclead
poisoning, he said. And even silver
and pyragallol, which cause serious
convulsions and sometimes death,
were discovered in certain goods.
Among the benefits that would be
derived from the enaction of the
Copeland Act would be the elimina-
tion of false advertising and labelling,
the restraining of chronic offenders
from further production by issuing
injunctions, the establishing of a
definition of drugs, and the operation
of factories under Federal permit in-
suring safeguard of public health
where it cannot otherwise be pro-
tected, he said.

'Hansel And Gretel' Story
Will Be Given First As
Matinee For Children-
"Hansel and Gretel," the first off
two productions of the Children's
Theatre, will be given under the di-.
rection of Kenneth Marantette, at a1
special matinee for children Thurs-
day, Dec. 14, in Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre. Evening performances will1
be held Dec. 15 and 16, and a second'
matinee on the latter date.,
The German folk legend of Hansel
and Gretel is given in various parts
of the world at Christmas time, and
this group hopes to make an annual
affair of it here. The Bertha L. Smith
arrangement of the Humperdinck
music, which was introduced last year
to over 2,000 people, will be used. The
fact that the Metropolitan Opera Co.
is giving the production over the ra-
dio Dec. 25 adds interest to the local
staging.

Tickets have already been placed
on sale and plans are rapidly going
forward for the second annual Var-
sity Football Smoker to be held under
the sponsorship of the Union at 8
p. m., Tuesday, Dec. 12, in the ball-
room, according to Edward W. Mc-
Cormick, recording secretary.

Sound pictures of a number of the
more important games on the sched-r
ule have been obtained and will be
shown on a huge screen especially
constructed for the occasion at one
end of the ballroom, McCormick said.
The same films were shown Saturday
night at the Football Bust in De-
troit, and are said to be perfect repro-
ductions of the plays.
Invitations to attend the smoker
have been extended to the entire
squad of 50, coaching staff, and
cheerleaders, in addition to a number
of prominent Detroit alumni.
Union officials stress the fact that
it is being held in celebration of the
impressive record compiled by Mich-
igan's championship football team,
and will be the last opportunity the
students and faculty will have to
honor them.
The main speaker of the evening
has not yet been selected by the com-
mittee, but he will undoubtedly be a
well-known coach or football official.
