Mr. Windt discussed the prepara-

as well as the courses in stage pro-

Prof. J. F. Shepard of the psychol-

The chief manner in which psy-
chologists can determine differences
in rats is by running them through
mazes. Some, stated Professor Shep-
ard, will be able to run through a
difficult maze the first time while
others will never succeed in running
it. On the other hand some rats run
to the mazes according to floor cues,
while others run it according to their
kinaesthetic sense organs. Still others
use vision as a means of conquer-
ing the maze, Professor Shepard said.
Professor Shepard disagrees with
the practice of some psychologists
who, on the basis of the rats first per-
formances in running the mazes, sep-

Famous Canadian Aviator
Is Killed In Plane Crash
LONDON, Ont., March 16-(/P)-
One of Canada's best-known avia-

airports, was killed today when his

ers and breed them accordingly. Little
can be told from the first maze, he
said, but it is an established fact that
the performances of a group of rats
is fairly consistent after the first
maze. "Therefore," he concluded, "I
do not believe that studies being
made by these psychologists are psy-
chological as they are not dealing
with learning and cues but rather
with the vitality of the rats."

and not survival of the essential per-
sonality. It is beautiful but comes
short of the real hope.
This assurance of the survival of
the essential personality appears to
me to have been weakening with the
growth of modern secularism since
the Great War. It may be that the
moral and the religious let down since
the Great War have been factors in
this situation. The great development
of modern science may be a factor in
this situation. The words quoted by
Professor E. C. Case with sympathy in
his article in the March number of
the "Michigan Alumnus" show a
questioning attitude toward the full
success of science: "The full secret
of life will always elude a purely sci-
entific treatment, it may be experi-
enced, imagined and felt, but never

This conviction is an integral part
of a philosophy of life and those who
hold certain philosophies of life will
not hold to this conviction. It is not
just one item of conviction; it is
rather a faith which dovetails in with
a world view.
As a Christian I hold this assur-
ance because of: first faith in god;
second, a conviction of the worth-
fulness of human personality; third,
the insight and intuition of Jesus
of Nazareth. Jesus said, "Because I
live ye shall live also." "In my Fath-
er's house are many mansions, if it
were not so I would have told you."
After the death of Alice Freeman
Palmer, her husband, Professor
George Palmer of Harvard wrote,

When Professor Simpson laid down
his work in the University of Edin-
burgh as a professor and dean, and
presented the graduating class for
their degrees, he concluded his words
to them this way: that the great les-
son he had learned in life was the
same that the disciple of Jesus taught
the men and women and children of
his day: "The world passeth away

worthily here and now. This hope
with its sense of value in human per-
sonality ought to challenge social
maladjustments. It brings comfort to
those who have loved and lost awhile.

Tugwell Bill Is A Step In Right
Direction, Say Glover, Edmunds

That the Tugwell Bill is a step
in the right direction toward proper
government regulation of drugs and
their advertising was agreed upon by
two leading authorities on the sub-
ject. Both Prof. Clifford C. Glover, of
the College of Pharmacy, and Dr.
Charles W. Edmunds, of the Medical
School stated that, in their opinion,
new legislation is needed in the field
of drugs and patent medicines.
Professor Glover emphasized par-
ticularly that the individual should
be protected, and public health in-
terests be safeguarded.
"Even in the present crop of bills
being forwarded, there is a great deal
of lobbying. The compromises effect-
ed by the bills succeeding the Tug-
well Bill are merely the result of mil-
lion dollar lobbying by representa-
tives of "the proprietary association
of America," stated Professor Glover.
"Some workable plan surely needs
to be crystallized, and this can be
done fairly, only when the public is
safeguarded," he said.
"A charge made against the bill.
was that it would deny to the private
citizen the right of self-medication.

Certainly the requirement that drugs
be sold only under labels and adver-
tising which shall actually be truth-
ful as to their accurate value, can-
not be construed as preventing self-
medication, but would seem rather
to encourage more intelligent self-
medication," he added.
According to Doctor. Edmunds, the
necessity of truthfulness in advertis-
ing is the main feature of the orig-
inal Tugwell Bill.
Many serious consequences have
developed from false representation,
he said, and the public has suffered
not only in a pecuniary way, but
health interests have also been vio-
The Tugwell Bill is the outcome of
intensive campaigns to eliminate the
"quack" medicines from the field of
pharmacy. The standing law, which
went into effect in 1907, is known
as the Food and Drug Act. In June,
1933, Senator Royal S. Copeland of
New York presented the Tugwell Bill
to the Senate, and since that time,
four successive measures have been
written. These include the Copeland,
Stephens, Dunn, and Boland Bills,
which are essentially modifications
of the Tugwell Bill.
