Austria Is Run
By 'Gangsters,'
Says Onderdonk
Calls Heimwehr A Group
Of 'Professional Killers,
lReactionary PeasanIs'
Austria would never have suffered
its recent troubles if men like Mus-
solini and Hitler had not shown that
a small gang could take over a gov-
ernment and run it as they wished,
Dr. Francis S. Onderdonk said in a
lecture yesterday in Natural Science
Dr. Onderdonk maintained that
the present "illegal" Austrian gov-
ernment under Dollfuss is composed
of "mercenary, bloodthirsty gang-
sters, worse than any we have in our
American cities." "The methods of
the Nazis and the Heimwehr are
those of the trenches," he said. "Gov-
ernment leaders were schooled in
militarism during the last war, Doll-
fuss himself having spent 3t months
at war."
Dr. Onderdonk called the Heim-
wehr a gang of "professional killers,
peasants who have been well pre-
pared for years. These reactionary,
conservative peasants have a great
hatred of the liberal, enlightened
aims of people in cities," he said.
"Forty-one per cent of the Austrian
population is made up of Social
Democrats. These were the people
who rebelled against a government of
gangsters, ruling by national law in-
stead of constitutional right.
"The Nazi government has hypno-
tized and terrorized the populace
through control of newspapers, mo-
tion picturesand the radio," he con-
tinued. "The social democrats and
republicans were forced into fighting
these Nazis."
At the conclusion of his lecture
Dr. Onderdonk said that "the time
has come when we, as human be-
ings, should see that there is some
protection given to people oppressed,
as are the Austrian Social Democrats,
by ruthless governments of force."

English, so that even we know pre-

With the comment, "It's perfectly grand," Mrs. Franklin D. Roose-
velt approved this official portrait of her husband which is to hang
permanently in the White House. She inspected the painting by which
posterity will know the thirty-second President of the United States
while on a visit to New York. It is the work of Ellen Emmet Rand.
Professor Advises Educators
To 'Lay Off The Fancy Words'


CLEVELAND, 0., March 9- "Lay,
off the fancy words!"
This was the advice given educa-
tors here for the annual convention
of the National Education Associa-
tion, by Prof. Thomas W. Briggs -of
Teachers College, Columbia Univer-
Unless you know the meaning of
"integrated personality," "inclusive
thinking," "dynamic," "adverse com-
pensation," "frame of reference,"

"life situation," and such, don't say
it, advised Dr. Briggs.
Such phrases, he said, were origi-
nally coined by someone who used
them to give emphasis or color to
an idea, but imitators with little or
no conception of their exact meaning
have worn them out, he said.
"There is a remedy sincerity pro-
vides," he said. "Use it at these
meetings whenever you hear a speak-
er utter a phrase of which you are
