Firemen And Reserve Police Halt Penitentiary Riot

-Associated Press Photos
A rebellion of about 1,500 convicts flared at Eastern penitentiary, Philadelphia, and raged for more
than three hours before fire companies, Philadelphia and state police brought the situation under control.
While smoke and flames from burning mattresses arose in cells and corridors the prisoners kept the insti-
tution in disorder, screaming and smashing cell furnishings. Warden Herbert J. Smith, who was wounded
in an attempt to quell the riot, is shown at left talking to policemen after order was restored. Picture at

Three Faculty Members
Write Chemistry Texts
"Elementary Quantitative Analysis,
Theory and Practice" by Prof. Ho-
bart H. Willard, of the chemistry de-
partment and N. Howell Furman of
Princeton University, and "Qualita-
t ive Chemical Analysis" by Roy K.
McAlpine and Byron A. Soule both
of the chemistry department here,
are two new books put in use this
year by the department.
The first is a published version of
the text, which has been in use in
mimeographed form here Thr:the
past 15 years. The second is merely
a revision of a book by Prescott and
Johnson, considerably modernized.

Reflect American
And British Ideas
In New Law Court
The fundamental difference be-
tween the American and the Eng-
lish characters is reflected even in
their court rooms, and something of
the essense of character difference is
discernable in the court room of
Hutchins Hall, the new law building.
Although it is a copy of the court
room of the. Lord Chief Justice in
London, it still retains some distinct-
ly American features.
The room, used for legal argu-
ments, I is approximately the same
size as its model in London, and its
most distinctively English feature is
the benches, similar to those used
in the high courts in London. These
benches, which in England are re-
served for the barristers, 'solicitors,
and witnesses, in this case are used
for the spectators, who are admitted
to the main floor in America, but
who are confined to small incon-
spicuous visitors' galleries in Eng-
With the public patically ex-
cluded from the English court room,
the rooms are smaller, the procedure+
is more orderly, and business is
strictly adhered to. Since trials and
legal arguments in England are not
the public spectacles which they are+
in America, there is not the neces-
sity for admitting the spectators to
the main floor,

Predicts War
In Far East
At Near Date
GENEVA, Septa 29.-(A. P-All
signs in the Far East point to a
major conflict in the next few years,
Dr. V. K. Wellington Koo, Chinese
minister to France, said in an ad-
dress today before the League of
Nations ;assembly in which he flayed
the Japanese invasion of Manchuria.
"Omirous clouds are rising on the
far eastern horizon," he asserted.
"The race for armaments has begun
with huge naval and air maneuvers,
fleet concentration, the fortifying of
bases, and enormous increases in war
Dr. Koo, who once was the Chinese
foreign minister, said the strongest
pressure was being brought to in-
duce China to abandon co-operation
with the West through the league
and to adopt a principle of "Asia for
He protested that Japan continues
to defy the verdict of the assembly
that Japanese occupation of Man-
churia violates the covenant of the
pact of Paris and is incompatible
with peace in the far east.
He insisted that the absence of
effective action by the league placed
a premium upon aggression and
strengthened those who believe might
is right.

Says Teachers
Are Important
Group In Drive
Education To Have Great
Bearing On Prosperity
Is Opinion Of Congdon
Calling attention to the fact that
"teachers represent one of the larg-
est groups of gainfully employed
workers, and the success of a pros-
perity drive will be seriously influ-
enced by the status of these one mil-
lion and more wage earners," Wray
H. Congdon, high school inspector of
the Division of University High
schools, says that the government's
prosperity drive "cannot overlook ed-
ucation" in the October issue of the
School of Education Bulletin, out to-
"Teachers," Mr. Congdon says, "are
a financially impoverished group. Al-
though the blanket code in this zone
requires that the skilled worker re-
ceive $1.20 anhour for a 40 hour
week, or over !$190 a month, there
are many teachers at this moment
teaching for anywhere from $25 to
$90 a month and working anywhere
from 40 to 50 hours, at least, a week.
"What of a nation that today sits
supine, and whose leaders refuse
codes of fair dealing, when the
teachers in whose hands lies the
shaping of the destinies of tomor-
row's leaders are forced to work for
less than a dole?"
In an article entitled, "The Schools
and The Youth," Prof. William
Clark Trow of the School of Edu-
cation, calls attention to the lack
of any "youth movement" in Amer-
ica corresponding to such movements
in European countries. He suggests
that in America, instead of allow-
ing the direction of the lives of
youth to be molded by special in-
terests groups, the schools and the
camps could serve as the basis for
a healthy youth movement.
Prof. Arthur B. Moehlman says
that "it is doubtful if public educa-
tion problems in Michigan can be
solved until two fundamental needs
are met." These needs, in the opin-
ion of Professor Moehlman, are civil
and educational administrative reor-
ganization and a better balanced sys-
tem of local and state taxation.
In another editorial, Prof. Francis
D. Curtis, head of the department of
biology and general science in the
University High School, suggests that
the "dodge-plan" be substituted for
the "even-front" method in labora-
tory experiments. The "even-front"
plan has each student performing
the experiment, all at the same time.
The "dodge-plan" has various mem-
bers of the class perform different
experiments at the same time and
exchanging with other members of
the class upon the completion of the
