Outlaws Don't Often Escape -Can Dillinger? ABNoted Educator IlI

FISHER, THESES,
AND NEGRO MUSIC
By JOHN W. PRITCHARD
Already published by Harper and
Brothers is Dr. Frederick B. Fisher's
new book, "Can I Know God?", the
April addition to Harper's Monthly
Pulpit.
Dr. Fisher presents to us in "Can
I Know God?" a progressive series
of essays which attempts to clarify
the thought of the man whose re-
ligious ideas have been muddled by
a tangled mass of conflicting argu-
ments regarding the nature of God,
and the extent to which he can be
relied upon and believed in by the
individual. Selling for $1, Dr. Fish-
er's little book probably will be of
great value both to the average per-
son and to the reader of the colleg-
ian's mental standard. It will be re-
viewed soon in this column.
A very nice letter from John Wiley
and Sons, Inc., informs us that they
are sending by separate post a com-
plimentary copy of Cole and Bige-
low's "Manual of Thesis Writing,"
for review purposes. The price, they
continue, is 75 cents. The book has
not appeared, so there is little that
can be said about it-except that it
is probably on sale by this time. May
5 is an excellent moment to announcel
the existence of such a work; perhaps
it will be- of use to you-if you can
find it.
Last fall Robert 0. Ballou, pub-
lisher, attracted considerable atten-
tion with "Roll, Jordan. Roll,'' con-
taining photographs of negro life in
South Caroline by Doris Ulmann and
explanatory text by Julia Peterkin.
Ballou now presents another facet
of the negro portion of America in
"Beale Street (Where the Blues Be-
gan)", by George W. Lee. The tip-
off to the subject matter is found in
the fact that a foreword is written
by W. C. Handy, author of "Beale
Street Blues" and "St. Louis Blues."
Says advance publicity: "Beale Street
in Memphis, Tennessee, is where the
blues began. They were born in the
odor of barbecued pig and fried fish,
accompanied by the voices of glib-
tongued barbers and electric pianos,

Plans for the College of Engineer-
ing Open House to be held May 11 and
12 were announced at a meeting of
the Engineering Council Wednesday
night.
An invitation to all fathers of en-
gineering students and others inter-
ested to attend classes and to inspect
the engineering laboratories next
Friday and Saturday was issued by
Walter Powers, '34E, president of the
council.
The cap and gown committee of
the senior class reported that ap-
proximately 130 caps and gowns are
available for use by members of the
senior class who wish to save a dollar
or more on rental charges. These
traditional insignia of the senior class
were left to the college as a memorial
by the class of 1931. Notice will be
given for dates of measurements and
distribution, according to Stuart
Smart, '34E, chairman of the com-
mittee.
Plans for an Engineering College
Smoker to be held the latter part of
May were discussed, but definite ac-
tion was deferred until the next meet-
ing.
The constitution of the Engineer-
ing Council was revised in order to
more closely link the various socie-
ties of the College of Engineering,
Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Rho Tau, Tri-
angles, and Vulcans were added to
the roster of the council's member so-
cieties.

Students To Inspect
Sanitation Systems'
The Ann Arbor branch of the
American Society of Chemical En-
gineers is planning an inspection tripI
of sewage disposal plants and water
purification methoas at Flint and
Saginaw for today, according to
John Skinner, 34E, president of the
club.
These plants were designed and
constructed under the direction of
Professors William C. Hoad and Ar-
thur J. Decker of the civil engineer-
ing department, who will accompany
the students on their tour of inspec-
tion today.
The students will leave the Union
at 7:30 a. m., spending the morning
in the Flint plants, and the remain-
der of the day inspecting the water
purification plant at Saginaw.

DES MOINES, Ia., May 4-(A')-
The National Farmer's Holiday As-
sociation was pledged today -to op-
pose the Agricultural Adjustment
Administration's crop reduction as
a program "to gain prosperity
through starvation."
A resolution, adopted at the as-
sociation's convention, termed the
AAA "a failure and a fraud, an in-
sult to every self-respecting farmer
and a crime against society and civi-
lization.
"It proposed to drive 2,000,000 far-
mers from the land, while another
agency of the administration seeks
to settle 2,000,000 of the city unem-
ployed on subsistence farmers. It
subjects the farmers to the virtual
dictatorship of a bureaucracy over
which they have no control."
The official stand against the AAA
was adopted with loud cheers late
Thursday night, after a long day of
militant speech-making attacking the
"new deal," Secretary of Agriculture
Wallace, Under-Secretary Rexford
Tugwell, and "the money lords."
Holiday officials said delegates
from 20 states were present atthe
convention. Approximately 2,000
persons attended the sessions, but
the number increased to an esti-
mated 5,000 when the Rev. Charles E.
Coughlin, priest of Royal Oak, Mich.,
spoke late in the afternoon.
"Tugwell or Christ" is the issue
before the nation today, Father
Coughlin asserted. He attacked Tug-
well as the servant of international
bankers and charged him with re-
sponsibility for the crop reduction
plans of the AAA.
Carrying out their expressed op-
position to the AAA, the Holiday far-
mers added a demand that Secre-
tary Wallace be removed.

The chances are all against trigger-fingered John Dillinger even if
he has come out on top in his brushes with the law so far. There was
Jesse James, shown at lower right in a contemporary artist's sketch, who
operated successfully until Robert Ford shot him in 1882 to gain a reward
of $30,000. A more modern gunman was Gerald Chapman (upper right).
An escaped convict, he was hunted two years for robbery and
murder, finally caught in Indiana, and then hanged in Connecticut in
1926. George "Machine Gun" Kelly (upper left), terrorized the south-
west but the law finally "got its man," and he was sentenced to life for
kidnaping Charles F. Urschel of Oklahoma. Officers hunting Dillinger
