Michigan's only scoring in the Drake

the 120 high hurdles. The Michigan
quarter-mile relay team qualified in

After the hurdle race Ward went
onto the field to compete in the
high jump, which he won in last
year's meet.'A few tries under wraps
showed he was definitely off form,
however, and he withdrew without
attempting to defend his title.
Ward said his legs were "not right,"
although so far as could be ascer-
aed he had suffered no injury in
DES MOINES, Ia., April 28. -(A)
-They waited 11 years for a quar-
tette of quarter-milers to come along
and break the one-mile relay record
at the Drake Relay carnival.
Today it happened, when four
fleet-footed youngsters from the Un-
iversity of California at Los Angeles
climaxed the silver anniversary of the
Drake games by smashing the record
hung up by the University of Iowa in
1923. The record was broken in the
last race of the day to the excite-
ment of 18,000 spectators, greatest
crowd to witness the West's oldest
athletic carnival since it was started
25 years ago.
The California quartette, composed
of James Miller, Sinclair Lott, Ray
Vejar and James Luvalle, clipped a
full second off the mark hung up by
the. Hawkeyes, runningthe distance
in 3:19.9. Luvalle, the IC.AA.A. four-
hundred meter champion, ran as an-
chor man on the winning team reel-
ing off his quarter in 48.6. To add a
touch of drama to the victory, the
Hawkeyes, who hung up the record
eleven years ago, were among the
spectators to see it crack.
The finish (relay) also saw the re-
markable comeback of Ralph Metcalf,
Marquette negro sprinter, and co-
holder of the world's record for the
100-yard dash. Metcalf, despite a
bleeding muscle in his right leg, won
in the dash today for the third con-
secutive year, beating his field to the
take in 9.7, just two tenths of a seec-
ond off the meet record, with his right
thigh swathed in bandages, Metcalf
edged out Hawl of Kansas after he
had run abreast of the Jayhawker
from the start.
Two of the University faculty mem-
bers were honored at the national
convention of*the American Physical
Education Association at Cleveland
last week. Several others attended.
Those receiving honors were Doc-

Wood Leaves For Five
Week Study Of Bird Life
Mr Norman A. Wood. curator emer-
BERKELEY, Calif., April 28. - (A)
- Bewildered at the widespread in-
terest in his scientific experiments to
reclaim a dead mongrel dog, Dr. Rob-
ert E. Cornish took a little time off
today to tell of himself and his rea-
sons for the weird operations in his
University of California laboratory.
In telling the story, the scientist,
28 years old, said he had depleted his
funds in carrying on the work in an
old laboratory placed at his disposal
by university authorities.
"The dog is living, brought back
to life after it was put to death in
my experiment to determine whether
dead men may also be made to live
again," he explained.
"Since 1 was a young student at
the University of California, I have
been thinking of a means to restore
life to victims of drowning, electric
shock, asphyxiation and heart failure.
"I conducted experiments on sheep
but found that their circulation was
retarded when the animal was off its
feet. Then I decided to experiment on
dogs, whose anatomy is comparable in
some ways to that of man.
"I wasn't discouraged when two
dogs died. I and my assistant, Dr.
Roderick Krider, selected two other
animals for further experiment.
"The laboratory in which the dog
is now kept is maintained at body heat
so the animal will not catch pneu-
monia," he said. "He is living, eating
liver, and drinking water and milk,
but I am worried whether his brain
will function fully again. He suffered
severely from shock when he was put
to death, but the death was painless.
"He is in a deep stupor and the
part of his brain which controls his
intellect may not be able to restore
itself. But I believe that we have gone
further in our experiments along this
line than ever before. There have
been cases where the hearts of an-
imals have been made to beat, but
never before has life been restored
to suchahighly developed creature
as a dog.
"If the dog's brain mends itself,
then we feel he will be restored com-
pletely, both mentally and physically.
And if we succeed, human beings also
may be brought back to life by similar
methods of revivification."

To Give Tall
'Economic Nationalism In
Europe' Will Be Topic
Dr. Melchior Palyi, visiting pro-
fessor of economics in the University
of Chicago, and formerly with the
Deutsche Bank und Disconto-Gesel-
schaft in Berlin, will give a University
lecture on "Economic Nationalism in
Europe" at 4:15 p.m. Monday in Nat-
ural Science Auditorium.
Dr. Palyi will discuss the growth of
trade barriers among European na-
tions after the World War, and will
show the relation of these barriers to
the world economic depression and
to current competition in arma-
Previous to 1933, when he left Ger-
many after Hitler's rise to power, Dr.
Paly; was professor in the Graduate
School of Commerce at Berlin, and
also chief economist of the Deutsche
Bank und Disconto-Gesellschaft, the
largest banking institution in Ger-
After Adolf Hitler became head of
Germany it became necessary for the
economist to leave the country, first
settling in London where he became
associated with the Midland Bank,
and then coming to the United States
to occupy the chair of visiting profes-
sor in economics at the University of
Recognized as an outstanding au-
thority on the theory of money, Dr.
Palyi was director of currency re-
search, the monetary advisory body
of the Reichsbank; editor of that
body's journal, "Monetary Econo-
my"; and a member of the Presi-
dential Board of the German Free
Trade Association and of the Ger-
man Investor Association.
Dr. Palyi is the author of a num-
ber of monographs and articles on
monetary theory, inflation, balances
of payments, and related subjects. He
served as technical expert of the
German Republic's commission on
stabilization of the mark after the
great inflation following the War.
He gave two addresses before the
local Economics Club on thiscam-
pus a few years ago, while he was
visiting professor of economics at the
University of Chicago, and he re-
cently addressed the members of the
American Statistical Association in
In addition to the University lec-

Why Women come
To College Will Be
Subject Of Debate
Are co-eds really very much in-
terested in political science, econom-
ics or business administration? Do
the majority of the lassies on cam-
pus come here to prepare for busi-
ness or a profession, or do the 3,000
women here come because the home-
town men are not eligible enough?
These will be the questions under
consideration in the annual semi-
humorous debate between members
of Adelphi House of Representatives,
men's speech club, and Athena Lit-
erary Society, national forensic socie-
ty for women, to be held Wednesday
night in the Adelphi Room, Angell
These two organizations have met
annually in topics of like insignifi-
cance since 1921. Such all-engross-
ing matters as whether men should
keep women's hours, whether or not
women get their grades by other
than scholastic means, and whether
or not marriage is a racket designed
for the benefit of women have been
considered in these yearly meets.
And this year the subject under
consideration will be: "Resolved, That
Women Come To College For Other
Than Scholastic Purposes." The lasses,
of course, will try to prove that
they have scholarly ambitions. The
men will insist that women come pri-
marily to get their husbands.
The members of the teams will be
announced in the near future, said

'A Little Love' By Vincent
Wall To Be Shown Here
May 3, 4,_And 5
For the first time a play which has
received the major drama award in
the Hopwood contests will be present-
ed on the stage, when Comedy Club
produces "AdLittle Love" this week,
May 3, 4, and 5.
"A Little Love," prize winner of
last spring, was written by Vincent
Wall, Grad., who several years ago
was associated with the Union Operas.
After attending school here, Mr. Wall
studied drama for two years at Har-
vard University, following which he
studied on the continent.
"A Little Love" was taken on tour
by Comedy Club during spring vaca-
tion, when they played in Birming-
ham, Jackson, and Owosso. The play
is being produced by special permis-
sion, previous to the premiere planned
this summer in a Massachusetts pro-
fessional theatre, which is used as a
tryout ground for possible New York
The Ann Arbor production is di-
rected by Ferol Brinkman, who also
directed "The Last of Mrs. Cheyney,"
given last winter by Comedy Club.
The leads for the new play will be
Ruth Hussey, Grad., and David Zim-
merman, '35, with Ann Verner, '35L,
and Jay Pozz, '34, in the supporting
roles. The story of the play is based
on a marriage "de convenance," in
which two people marry in order to

Education By State
Michigan Schoolmasters' Club yes-
terday brought to a close its 69th an-
nual three-day meeting here with
a program of group discussions de-
signed especially for classroom teach-
A great deal of interest has been
aroused, both among pupils them-
selves and among their parents, in
the economic significance of the New
Deal, it was stated in a discussion
yesterday morning of c h a n g e s
wrought by the experiment in the
teaching of social studies.
Children in grades as low as the
fifth have come and asked to have the
CCC and CWA projects explained to
them, declared a representative from
River Rouge. Their interest is aroused
because their parents are vitally
concerned in the projects, he said.
Public Relations Closer
The suggestion that the public re-
lations of the schools, especially
where the social studies are con-
cerned, have been made closer
through the influence of the New
Deal was made by Dr. O. W. Stephen-
son of University High School, who
presided over the discussion. Parents
are taking a more than ordinary in-
terest in what their children are
learning about the New Deal, Dr.
The question of how to handle con-
troversial subjects in history received
a great deal of attention. Miss Edith
L. Hoyle of University High School
advopated the presentation of a com-
plete picture of the situation includ-
ing the errors and faults on the part
of the United States.
Most of the teachers present who
expressed their views on this ques-
tion agreed with Miss Hoyle and one
stated that to carry nationalism too
far was a great mistake. An at-
tempt should be made to seek the
truth of the matter as far as the facts
are known and then to let the pupil
make up his own mind, they said.
Says Historians Hindered
Dr. Stephenson declared that the
closing of the archives of the great
nations has hindered historians in
presenting the true state of affairs to
students. As an example he said
there is still some of the diplomatic
correspondence between the United
States and Great Britain about the
Civil War which has not yet been
made available to research workers.
The result is that the background of
present economic legislation may not
be fully known, Dr. Stephenson said.
Prof. W. C. Trow of the School of
Education led a discussion of a State
program of character education in

Tradesmen Defend Their

Price-fixing tactics pursued by lo-
cal trade associations have been in-
strumental in preventing the Fra-

hoped to effect savings for their mem-
ber houses, Maxwell T. Gail, '34, sec-
retary-treasurer of the Interfrater-

sociation, charged last night.
Unwillingness to lower their prices
to the co-operative association has
characterized the attitude of mer-
chants in many fields, who look upon
the association as an organization
tending to reduce their profits, Gail
The association was organized
shortly after Christmas vacation un-
der the sponsorship of the Interfra-
ternity Council and has at present 12
houses as participating members.
A saving of from 10 to 15 per cent
has been effected, Gail stated, in the
commodities and services which the
association has handled so far.
A policy which the directors of the
association have set up for them-
selves, he added, is that they will not
