CWA Projects
For University
Are Launched
Will Cost Approximately
$75,000; Give Work To
280 Students
University CWA projects which
will cost approximately $75,000 and
eventually provide 260 to 280 jobs
have all been gotten under way.
Eighty to 100 of these jobs will be
of the "white-collar" variety, and will
be on educational projects in vari-
ous departments of the University,
according to Prof. L. M. Gram, di-
rector of plant extension.
For this work, an important as-
pect which will be to increase the
value of libraries and museums by
cataloguing, indexing, and preparing
specimens, about $12,000 has been
set aside. The Dental Library and
the Museums will be two of the di-
visions to benefit from this work. In
the Herbarium work will center
around the newly-acquired Parke-
Davis collection, Professor Gram said.
Some men have already been put
to work on these projects, and a
total of about 100 will be used when
the projects are fully under way.
To Extend Power Service
The largest project of those ap-
proved by the CWA is that of ex-
tending power and electrical service
to buildings on Ferry Field and to
the Stadium, which will cost approxi-
mately $28,000. When the extension
is complete it willbe possible for
the first time to supply the athletic
plant with electricity from the Uni-
versity Power Plant.
Construction of a fireproof'- sub-
station and switch house near the
University Hospital at a cost of $12,-
000 has just been started. The new
building will make it possible to re-
move the dangerous switch room from
the hospital, according to Edward
C. Pardon, superintendent of build-
ings and grounds. A man was killed
there a short time ago, he said.
Four thousand dollars has been al-
lotted for weather-stripping the win-
dows of University Hospital, and an
additional $1,000 will be used to ex-
tend city water service to the bo-.
tanical gardens on Packard Street.
v Will Build Tunnel
The building of a heating tunnel
between the campus proper and the
University High School, Elementary
School,kand Architecture Building
will make it possible to extend all
service lines to' those buildings
through thespermanentstunnel. At
present heat is carried through tem-
porary pipes under the high school
athletic field, Pardon said, he new
tunnel will cost $10,000.
Some 40 to 50 minor miscellaneous
improvement and maintenance jobs
will' requirea another $20,000. The
total of $75,000 for all projects in-
cludes both labor and materials. The
University is furnishing the mate-
rials for some of the work, while
the funds are coming from the CWA.
The University will not ask ap-
proval on any additional CWA proj-
ects unless the closing date for such
works is extended, Mr. Pardon said.
Should there be such an extension,
he said, the buildings and grounds
department will be prepared to sub-
mit plans for a great number of
outdoor summer jobs.
Instead of exterminating the Jew,
he (Hitler) should have said, "I will
tolerate Jews to any extent so long
as no Jew marries a Jewess." That
is how he could build up a strong,
solid German people.-George Ber-
nard Shaw.

Piano Master
'io Appear In
Recital H e r e
Sergei Rachmaninoff Will
Present Concert At Hill
Auditorium Thursday
Sergei Rachmaninoff, master of
the pianoforte, will appear in the
Choral Union Concert series next
Thursday at Hill Auditorium.
Rachmaninoff stands out as one
of the greatest living exponents of
piano wizardry. Termed "an old
master," he is sort of a connecting
link between the great piano virtu-
osos of the present time and the
masters of the past. He is similar
to Paderewski in this respect.
Not only a fine performer, he is a
composer and conductor as well. His
"Prelude in C Sharp Minor" is per-
haps the most famous contemporary
classic in existence. For decades
great artists have included his com-
positions in their programs, and
hardly a teacher or pupil of piano
exists who has not familiarized him-
self with his works.
He has been heard in Ann Arbor
on numerous occasions, each time
with eminent success. This is the
fourth time he has given recitals
here, the other times in 1920, 1929,
and 1931; each a Choral Union Con-
cert appearance.
As a memorial tribute to the late
Albert Lockwood, head of the piano
department of the School of Music
for over 30 years, Rachmaninoff will
include on his program Chopin's "So-
nata in B Flat Minor," which con-
tains the famous Funeral March.

The Edgewater local of the United
Automobile Workers of America have
voted to suspend their strike of the
local assembly plant 'of the Ford
Motor Car Co.
The action marked the end of a
strike which began Sept. 28 when the
men walked out to enforce demands
for better payand other concessions.
At the height of the strike leaders es-
timated 1,600 of the plant's 2,000
workers were out.
Science Predicted
To Defeat Religion
(By Intercollegiate Press)
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 10. -
The age-old battle between religion
and science ultimately will be won by
science when religion comes to be
seen wholly as the "natural product
of the human mind," according to
William M. Davis, professor emeritus
of geology at Harvard University.
"The theological elements of Chris-
tianity still held by conservatives,"
he said, "rest upon evidence no better
than that which formerly supported
many other elements, which, having
been found untenable, have been
given up. Hence those additional ele-
ments will in time also be given up,
and religion, like science, will then be
seen to be wholly the natural product
of the human mind."

Postal Savings Here
Multiply 700 Times
Although stamp receipts ait: the lo-
cal post office fell to $262,156.85 for
1933, postal savings business his
multiplied 700 times and moncv c'-
der receipts three times, Postmast~er
A. C. Pack said yesterday.
The tremendous gain in postal sav-
ings and money orders came largely
during abnormal banking conditions,
and there will probably be a loss in
savings this year, the postmaster
said. He is not permitted to disclose
actual figures for these departments,
he said.
Stamp receipts were $271,680.67 in
1932. The peak year in this respect
was 1929, with $302,052.11 taken in.
During 1933, December was, as usual,
the high month, while August was

'No Races Pure
Today,' German
Professor Says
(By Intercollegiate Press)
BALTIMORE, Md., Jan. 11. -'Al-
though declining to be drawn into
the modern controversy over the Nor-
dic race and its rank among the races
of the world, Dr. Johannes L. Hoops,
professor of English language at Hei-
delberg University, Germany, holds
that with the exception of a few iso-
lated tribes, there are no people to-
day of a pure race.
Speaking on the subject recently,
Dr. Hoops, who is in America as an
exchange professor at Johns Hopkins
University, asserted:
"A race is, briefly, a large group
of men with some mental and phys-
ical hereditary qualities. There are
six principal races among European
The domain of the Nordic race is
northern Europe, including Scandi-
navia, Iceland, northern Germany
and the British Isles, he said.
The surviving descendants of the
Phalian race are found in northwest-
ern and northern Europe.
The Mediterranean race, found in
the Mediterranean countries and
somewhatin western Europe, is of
short stature and a neat, slender
build, Prof. Hoops said.
The fourth race is called the Al-
pine race and is found from Russia
through Germany, along the Alps
and through France.
The East Baltic race is squarely
built with massive head and face, he
The chief characteristic of mem-
bers of the Denaric race, he said, is
that their heads do not project back
but seem chopped off. The projecting
Hapsburg lower jiaw is typical of this
When CWA jobs were opened up
to students at the University of Ida-
ho, 438 students signed up for the
jobs. The work will be done about
the campus, a publicly-owned insti-

Nazi Medical Ref
Licensing Of N
BERLIN, Jan. 11.- (/')-Medical
circles are stirred by an announce-
ment that the Nazi regime is consid-
ering granting licences to 5;000 Na-
turheil-praktiker, or non-medical
practitioners, as a feature of a sweep-
ing medical reform being conducted
under Nazi auspices.
Another contemplated feature is
the barring of women from the med-
ical profession.
At a medical meeting in Berlin, Dr.
Gerhard Wagner, the new Nazi chief
of the medical association, repri-
manded German medical authorities
for having "deplorably neglected" in-
vestigation into nature cures.
Ban Not Practical
"It is the fault of university med-
ical faculties," he said, "that so many
quack doctors have sprung up."
He described the Nazi idea of ther-
apy as a 'combination nature-cure
and medical treatment method.
Dr. Wagner said: "There are more
adherents to nature-healing methods
than one would believe. A complete
ban on nature doctors would not be
He suggested not that they be for-
bidden to practice but that the na-
tion's medical menrtake a lesson from
them. "We must regain the ground
lost to them during the past 10
years," he declared. "It is impossible
to eliminate all nature-healers now."
After admission of the 5,000, no
more licenses to nature-healers would
be granted for the next 10 years,
he said.
"We will not permit them to lec-
ture publicly or to conduct vagrant
practices," he declared.
To Eliminate Women
Touching on women studying for
the medical profession, he said: "Our
aim is to eliminate women completely
from medical studies."
Not only women but also bachelors
would be hit by the reform.
Lower fees, Dr. Wagner revealed,
are in store for them. In fact, the
entire medical fee system would be
scaled to matrimony and parenthood
-a measure deeply significant to

orm May Bring


German medical life, German doctors
being for the most part completely
dependent for remuneration upon the
state-controlled Krankenkassen, or
sick-benefit institutions, from which,
incidentally, all Jewish physicians ex-
cept war veterans have been barred.
Dr. Wagner's statements indicated
that more value is attached in the
Third Reich to a doctor's marrying
early and raising a family than to
"The new medical course will be
shortened, permitting a man to prac-
tice and start a family at the age of
25," he said.
More Children- Higher Fees
Bachelors' fees, under the contem-
plated system, would be reduced to
two-thirds of the amount presently
being paid per patient. The fees of a
married doctor without children
would be reduced to three-fourths.
Only for doctors with a family of
two children would the present re-
muneration be retained, with corre-
sponding increases for additional
A new medical "chamber," says Dr.
Wagner, will be created this year,
with membership compulsory for
every German medical man.
