My Beliefs About Immortality;
No. 5: The Rev. Sayles' Views

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth
of a series of articles on "Immortality,"
written by prominent Ann Arbor cler-
gymen. The sixth and last article, to
appear in tomorrow's Daily, will be
written, by Rabbi Bernard Heller of
Hillel Foundation.
(Of the First Baptist Church)
By the life everlasting we mean
survival of the essential personality.
It is confused in some minds 1by a
debate which is as old as the Phari-
sees and Sadducees - the physical
resurrection. The heart of the ques-
tion is that of the survival of the
essential personality.
I have heard orators speak of the
new life in the springtime and in
particular the new life of the rose
as it puts on leaf and bud and bloom
with the return of the springtime.
But the rose and other vegetable
forms were not dead. The Christian
Easter festival merged with the pa-
gan festival of spring and is now ob-
served at a movable date and in the
spring season.
Sometimes I hear men substitute
the moral resurrection for the sur-
vival of the essential personality and
again this is to evade the issue.
I love those words of George Eliot:

"Oh, may I join the choir invisible
fOf those immortal dead who live
In minds made better by their pres-
ence; live
In pulses stirred to generosity,
In deeds of daring rectitude, in
Of miserable aims that end with self,
In thoughts sublime that pierce the
night like stars,
And with their mild persistence urge
men's search
To vaster issues.
May I reach
That purest heaven - be to other
The cup of strength in some great
Enkindle generous ardor, feel pure
Beget the smiles that have no
Be the sweet presence of a good
And in diffusion even more intense!
So shall I join the choir invisible,
Where music is the gladness of the
This is immortality of influence

Claims Liberty
Is Threatened
Tells Senate Committee
Administration Air Mail
Bill Is Dangerous
Attacks Barring Of
Offending Concerns
Says Cancellation Violated
Fundamental Rights Of
The American People
WASHINGTON, March 16 .-(P)-
Col. Charles A. Lindbeirgh told a
Senate committee today that the can-
ellation of airmail contracts "vio-
lated fundamental American rights"
and that a section -of the Adminis-
tration's airmail bill was "as con-
trary to American liberty as any-
thing I have ever seen."
This reference was flung at a sec-
tion of the proposed measure which
would bar the companies whose con-
tracts have been annulled from bid-
ding for new awards if they press
claims growing out of the cancella-
Lindbergh's views on the airmail
episode have become well known since
Postmaster General James H. Farley
announced recently that contracts
were scrapped because of fraud.
Lindbergh's appearance today, how-
ever, gave him an opportunity to tell
the members of the Postoffice Com-
mittee face to face what he thought
of the measure which is before them
and to discuss the cancellation and
aviation in general.
Should Have Trial
"I feel these companies have - and
should have had - the right to trial
before being convicted of guilt which
is only implied and not proved," he
said earnestly.
Once or twice the queries swung
to the testimony before another Sen-
ate committee that lid the founda-
tion for the cancellation.
"I knows.noing. w that," Lind-
bergh said crisply when asked by
Chairman Kenneth D. McKellar
about the circumstances under which
the contracts were let in 1930.
He agreed with a suggestion by]
Senator M. M. Logan, Kentuky Dem-
ocrat, that the contracts should be1
restored to the private companies
pending a final review of the entire
'situation and a "definite determina-
tion of guilt."
Question Salary and Bonus
The committee members ques-
tioned him briefly about his salary
and stock bonuses from Transcon-
tinental and Western Air Express.
"Let me say," he smiled, "that I've
never received a gift or gratuity from
an aviation company. I've worked for
them. I might have received more
in another field - probably could7
have - but I preferred aeronautics."I
He described the cancellation as a
blow to American aviation "whose'
extent is as yet unrevealed.'"
He did not criticize the Army's un-
lucky effort to take over the job.
"The Army mail carrying was not
as efficient as that of the private
companies," he said, but added that
the service lacked "proper equipment
and the time to prepare for the task."
Alumni To Hold

Meeting Soon
The fourth national triennial con-
vention of University of Michigan
Alumni Association will be held on
Friday and Saturday, June 1 and 2,
at the Hotel Pantlind in Grand Rap-
ids, according to plans formulated at

versity of Michigan club of Grand
The program as outlined includes
business sessions, social activities, and

Tag Day Will
Be Replaced
By Jamboree
University Camp For Boys
To Receive Funds From
Entertainers Will
Volunteer Services
To Be At Hill Auditorium
March 27; Will Try To
Care For 125 Boys
In place of the annual Student
Christian Association Tag Day drive
to raise funds for the University
Fresh Air Camp for underprivileged
boys, a huge jamboree, with enter-
tainers furnishing their services free,
will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday,
March 27, at Hill Auditorium.
For 13 years the camp, a project
in human engineering, has been in
existence, supported by University
alumni, and by the campus drive.
Three hundred and fifty boys are
sent to the camp, which is located
among 180 wooded acres on Patterson
Lake. Here, waifs who ordinarily
would never have the opportunity for
such pleasures learn the principles of
healthy living. They lead a cosmo-
politan life, no racial or color bar-
riers being raised.
Donations Obtained
The'donations obtained from "Tag
Day" drives in the past have sent
about one third or 125 to camp. Last
year because of poor campus support
the camp ran for only five weeks.
"We believe that students are get-
ting tired of supporting every organi-
zation that comes along," stated
George. G. Adler, director of the
camp, last night. "Therefore, with the
Jamboree we plan to give the stu-
dents something for their contribu-
tions. We need the support of the
campus. A near capacity crowd at
Hill' Auditorium will mean that 125
more boys will be able to get off the
city streets and also the camp will
be able to run its regular eight weeks
instead of five."
To date many entertainment fea-
tures have been solicited and it is
expected that within a few days a
headliner will have been obtained. J.
Fred Lawton, '11, has been secured
to act as master of ceremonies. Law-
ton, who wrote the words to the
"Victors," will also present a short
skit from the "Bum Army," third
Union Opera of 1909. Most of the
original characters will re-enact their
roles. Prof. Earl V. Moore of the
School of Music wrote the score for
this opera.
Lawton Imitates Yost
Lawton has promised to give his
famous imitation of Athletic Director
Fielding H. Yost, taken from "Cul-
ture," the Union Opera of 1908. This
rendition represents Yost giving his
men a fight talk between the Mich-
igan-University of Pennsylvania game
of 1908.
There will be two types of tickets
on sale for the Jamboree; the reg-
ular ticket which will cost 50 cents
-nd the patrons ticket for which any
price above 50 cents may be paid.
Both will be on sale at the League
and Union Monday.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
in a statement issued recently said,
"I do not think that there can be
a single individual among the stu-
dents, faculty, and officers of the
University of Michigan who would
not say if asked about the Univer-
sity Fresh Air camp, 'Yes, it is a
splendid thing.' It is obvious that

the camp is entirely altruistic in its
purposes and that it offers, both to
the boys who are taken to it and to
the college men who work with them
and for them, rich opportunities for
the building of character.

Senate Bons
Defeat Measure By Margin
Of One Vote; Kennedy
Is Deckling Factor
WASHINGTON, March 16._(')-
By a margin of one vote, the House
insisted today that veterans' allow-
ances approved by the Senate be
trimmed substantially.
The vote was 190 to 189.
On a previous roll call it appeared
that the House had voted for the
Senate-approved $118,000,000 instead
of the $90,000,000 the representatives
previously had agreed to.
But Rep. Martin J. Kennedy, New
York Democrat, shifted his "aye"
vote to "no" and the Administration
forces won.
When it first appeared that the
House had reversed; dtself by the
same vote of 190 to 189, Speaker
Henry T. Rainey ordered another
roll call.
A decision on the veterans allow-
ances, as well as restoration of Gov-
ernment employees cut pay, now will
be worked out by committees repre-
senting the Senate and the House.
Rep. William P. Connery, Massa-
chusetts Democrat, made the move
to get the House to reverse itself on
both the Government pay and vet-
erans' proposals.
The House wants 5 per cent of the
cut pay restored as of Feb. 1 and "
per cent on July 1. The Senate voted
for 5 per cent as of Feb. 1 and 10 per
cent on July 1.
The House proposition was esti-
mated to cost the Treasury about
about $28,000,000 to July 1, and about
$125,000,000 in the next fiscal year,
compared with the $190,000,000 un-
der the Senate amendment.
Ward Leads Negro
Symposium Group
A Negro symposium led by Willis
Ward, '35, was held last night at
Ann Arbor High School. The ques-
tion under discussion was "A critical
survey of the problems confronting
the Negro in the following fields:
history, social progress, law, litera-
ture, public health, and education."
Those besides Ward who partici-
pated in the discussion were H. J.
Harrison, Grad., James O. Sladle,
Grad., George Crockett, '34L, Cecil
A. Blue, Grad., Paul B. Cornely,
Grad., and Doxey A. Wilkerson, Grad.
The chairman of the symposium
was C. E. Boulware, Grad. Otto W.
Haisley, superintendent of Ann Ar-
bor Public Schools also participated
in the discussion. The Bethel A.M.E.
choir rendered several selections.

The program yesterday was fea-
tured by the annual president's mes-
sage, delivered by Prof. Henry A.

ment of Speech and General Linguis-
tics, who discussed "Recent Text

account of Professor Sanders' ad-
dress will be found on page six of

Popular interest centered in the
main about the history and political
science section, which met yester-
day afternoon on the Terrace of the
Union for a discussion of the Euro-
pean situation, the situation in the
United States, and the South Ameri-
can dictators.
Slosson Discusses Europe
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the
history department, who led the on-
sideration of the European political
set-up, said that in his opinion the
European dictatorships rest on a pre-
carious foundation exemplified in the
lack of provision for an orderly suc-
cession in the headship of the state.
The result of the demise of the dic-
tator, Professor Slosson stated, is
civil war and the imminent possi-
bility of hostilities with a foreign
South American dictatorships are
the culmination of personal ambition
on the part of political and military
leaders and may be interpreted as
the manifestation of a desire to
emerge from the period of war and
chaos, Prof. Arthur S. Aiton of the
history department declared
Terror In South America
"We have seen in South America
the period of the 'strong arm' men
who ruled by terror and in spite of
opposition secret societies," Profes-
sor Aiton said. "There followed a
period of dictators who worked just
inside the law. After that there
came the period of economic storm
and 1930 and 1931 saw the rise to
power of new dictators in several of
the South American countries.
"The future of South America lies
in the balance. Communism is mak-
ing a strong bid in several sections
of this continent. At any rate, the
South American dictator seems des-
tined to go on for some time in this
part of the world."
An economic plan which will pro-
vide work for all who want work
must be devised by the United States
unless we are pulled out of the de-

Greece Moves
To Extradite

Insull o U. S.
Utilities Magnate Captured
On Greek Steamer Near
Island Of Crete
ATHENS, March 16-(1) - The
Greek Government, thoroughly an-
gered at Samuel Insull, whose- sen-
sational attempt to escape on a
grimy tramp steamer was frustrated
today, will return him to the United
States for trial.
Insull was near the Island of Crete
today when authorities established
contact by wireless with his boat, the
Greek freighter Maiotis, and ordered
its master to turn about and bring
him back.
Irate that "last week's invalid"
had abused Greek hospitality by try-
ing to flee, authorities let it be known
that they would have no further hesi-
tation about expelling him.

Suggest Various Solutions For
Seniors' Extra Hour Problem


What the senior woman is to do
with that extra hour, now that the
benevolent authorities have (with
considerable frothing) given it to
her, has caused a number of charm-
ing, or something, suggestions. These
suggestions have come to The Daily
and are printed herein with the hope
that the women will take them for
what they are worth. Although the
suggestions are printed in The Daily,
the reader must understand that they
do no necessarily represent the edi-
torial opinions of this paper.
1. Play "roller-butch". This should
be a popular game now that spring
is approaching. The idea is to get
a pair of roller skates, skate up and
down before the house of President

gold ball. The idea of this game is
for the senior women to shinny up
the pole, without using their hands,
and get the ball. The preservation of
dignity and decorum is most essen-
tial to the genuine enjoyment of this
game. No suggestion has been made
as to what to do with the ball after
the women have got it. Perhaps it
would be a good idea to shinny back
and put it up there again. After all,
the flag pole would look sort of bald
with out it.
3. Diagonal Hops. This game is
played with beer bottles (purchased
on the wicked side of Ann Arbor, of
course), hence the name. Idea: place
beer bottles, 25 of them, a distance
of three feet from one another. Hop
over the first beer bottle. Then drink

Edmonson Sees Threat To Free
Education In Proposed Changes

"There is no nationwide organized
conspiracy against the public school
system, but there are numerous pro-
posals for changes in the policies of
public educations that would ulti-
mately destroy our present program
of free publc education," Dean J. B.
Edmondson of the School of Educa-
tion declared in an address given
recently before the Teachers' Club
of Grand Rapids. However, there is
such support for these proposals, ac-
cording to Dean Edmondson, that
there is strong suggestion of con-
spiracy with "shrewd and aggressive

-p u b1.ic

schools of a community

through local property taxes. The
danger in this proposal, Dean Ed-
mondson said, is to the equality in
public education which most educa-
tors are striving to achieve. Neigh-
boring communities with different
per capita wealth would necessarily
have different educational facilities
for their children. This would of
course destroy any hope of giving
all children equal education oppor-
tunities in life.
The second proposal, if adopted
generally, would restrict the public
