May Day Ride Approved
By Conference After A
Stormy Debate
Final Meeting Is
th erwise Amicable
Pledge Against Support Of
Government In Any War
Is Adopted
The final session of the Anti-War
Conference was packed with drama
yesterday as warring factions debated
the question f adopting a resolution
to back University students involved
in the May Day ride to Detroit.
The meeting in Natural Science Au-
ditorium opened with the discussion
of the resolutions adopted by various
commission groups which met in the
morning. The fireworks came when
the commission on Fascism and War
reported out a resolution protesting
the refusal of police to allow 38 Uni-
versity students to hold a parade in
Detroit on May Day. The conference
was asked to adopt this resolution and
immediately there was heated discus-
sion from the floor.
Gordon B. Halstead, general chair-
man of the conference urged that the
resolution be withdrawn, saying that
the, members of the party that went
to Detroit did not have the strength
of their convictions, and that the res-
olution had nothing to do with the
prevention of, war.
Should Fight Own Battles
A delegate from Michigan State
College told the members of the con-
ference that the University students
should fight their own battles and not
ask the conference to do it for them.
Charges that the participants in
the May Day ride were mostly com~-
munists was refuted by Guy M. Whip-
ple, Jr., '35, and alleged police bru-
tality in Detroit was characterized as
fascism by Edward T. Cheyfitz, '34,
of the National Student League.
The resolution was finally adopted
by the conference, as was the Oxford-
modeled pledge which read, "We
pledge ourselves not to support the
government of the United States in
any war it may conduct." Other res-
olutions adopted condemned the ac-

conference affiliated itself with the

Fisher Speaks
The first speaker on the program
was the Rev. Frederick B. Fisher of
the Methodist Church, who discussed
a questionnaire on peace sent to 100,-
000 clergymen in the United States.
Approximately 20,000 replied, 13,000
declaring they would not sanction or
participate in any future war, and
18,000 repudiating capitalism as a
Dr. Fisher touched on the suppres-
sion of May Day parades in Detroit
by comparing them to the peaceful
demonstrations of Mahatma Gandhi
and his followers which are sup-
pressed by the British government.
He added that the followers of Gandhi
are the only people in the world who

adhere to true pacifist methods.
Dr. Harold A. Bedient of the Cli-
max (Mich.) Methodist Church,
graphically described the blood and
horror of the World War and his ex-
periences in training camps and on
the Western front. He urged members
of the group to fight against war.
Capitalist System Attacked
Tucker Smith of Brookwood Labor
College spoke against the capitalistic
system, saying that profit taking in-
itiates war and patriotism or na-
tionalism keeps it going, adding that
both capitalism and patriotism would
have to be smashed before real peace
could be obtained.
He said the class struggle is violent
because of capitalism, but that death
was in the nature of things, and
that the real pity of war was not
being shot, but being shot for noth-
ing. He invited members of the con-
ference into the revolution against
capitalism, telling them that if they
were going to be shot, they should sell
themselves, and not die for nothing.

A member of Michigamua, senior

chance of being successful in his
chosen profession after graduation
than has a member of Phi Beta

captains and managers of the prin-

2.5 Requirement
Phi Beta Kappa, in contrast, is a
national honorary scholastic society
with its principal requirement for
membership being a 25 honor point
average for seniors or a 2.8 average
for juniors in the literary college and
education school.
In general, results of the survey
indicate that the "activity man," as he
is often called, has a very slight
advantage over the scholar in re-
gard to prospects of future success.
These conclusions were reached by
means of a survey of the present oc-
cupations of all members of both
groups who graduated from the Uni-
versity between 1903, the year Mich-
igamua was founded and the first
class taken into Phi Beta Kappa, and
1913. In all, 220 members of the for-
mer and 205 of the latter were checked
in alumni records and an average
worked out for each group.
85 Per Cent May Make Good
On the basis of past performances,
it may safely be predicted that ap-
proximately 85 per cent of the mem-
bers of Michigamua this year, or any
year, will make more than a passing
No Action Imminent
On Proposition For
Swine out S ubstiide
The plan for a substitution for
Swingout, upon which the Under-
graduate Council labored so stren-
uously only a short whilesback, is
now resting pleasantly, if a little
awedly, in the laps of Dean Joseph
A. Bursley.
A substitute plan which called
for a general march around the cam-
pus terminating before the General
Library in a sing and possible speech
making by outstanding members
of the graduating class was turned
into the cean of student's office
May 1, the deadline date set by the
Senate Committee on Student Af-
fairs for the Council to submit its
substitute plan,
Since that time the plan has
rested in the dean's office. No
meetng of the Senate committee has
been held and none has been called
for the immediate future. The
matter remains completely quiescent.

Laymen Are To
Take Over Five
Pulpits Today
'Possibility Of Conversion
To Be Topic Of Harvard
Philosophy Professor
Five Ann Arbor pulpits will be
opened today to members of the Ap-

impression on the world in the next
20 years, while 80 per cent of the
Phi Beta Kappas will do likewise.
These figures are based only on the
records of the men in Phi Beta Kappa,
there being 114 of them out of the
205 graduates.
Including the women graduates in
the average brings the percentage for
the scholastic groupdown ton51.3, but
this could not be used in a comparison
with Michigamua.
A difficulty existed in choosing a
criterion to use in selecting which
were to be called successful and which
not, but by assuming that all those
who have distinguished themselves
in anyway are successful, a fair basis
was approximated, and the same re-
quirements for inclusion were used
with both sets of graduates.
Ideal Achievement
Eleven names appeared on both
lists of alumni, and invariably these
men were among the most outstand-
ing, indicating in general that the
ideal achievement as an omen for the
future would include winning both
the Phi Beta Kappa key and the
Michigamua badge.
There is a definite difference be-
tween the professions most often fol-
lowed by members of the two societies.
Including the women graduates, there
were 105 Phi Beta Kappas judged
successfully, and of these 52, or al-

Tax Moratorium Declared
By State Has Resulted In
Revenue Problem
Ann Arbor's Common Council will
turn its attention to the problem of
the payment of the $110,153.64 bond
issue coming due August 1, at its
meeting tomorrow night.
The problem of meeting the bond
payment has arisen because the State
Legislature has made delinquent tax-
es uncollectable- until some future
date, thus depriving the city of the
funds by which it had planned to
meet the issue.
Sentiment has been growing among
the councilmen questioning the au-
thority of the Legislature to declare
the tax moratorium as it has done,
with the Moore-Holbeck Bill and
others of the last session. It is not
definite yet, howeve, whether Ann
Arbor will make a test case of the is-

Several university students were in-
cluded in a list of extremists found
by police today. Authorities believed
discovery of the list would aid in solv-
ing recent bombings.
They disclosed that extremist lead-
ers had been paying youths consid-
erable sums to place bombs in the
streets and near electric conduits. A
huge bomb was discovered early this
morning at the foot of an electric
DETROIT, May 5. - (P) -Detroit's

mercury was up to 86 degrees. It was

Police Actioni
On May Day
Says Right Of Asse -bly Is
Subject To Limitations
By State Police Power
Law School Dean
Discusses Situation
Constitutional Rights Said
Not Transgressed Since
Students Invited Trouble
Although freedom of assembly is
guaranteed under both the Federal
and State constitutions, the use of
that freedom is subject to limitation
by the police power of the states, in
the opinion of Dean Henry M. Bates,
of the Law School.
The question was brought to the;
fore by the recent order of Mayor
Frank Couzens of Detroit prohibiting
parades on May Day in the city, andI
the charges made by Communist;
sympathizers that this order was an
infringement of constitutional rights.
No Valid ReasonI
Dean Bates said further that he.
did not think the students who went
to Detroit to take part in the "exer-.
cises" on May 1 had valid objection
to being ordered not to hold meetings'
where they might lead to disorder1
on the grounds of constitutional
rights, since they were inviting trou-
ble by their presence and their at-'
"They have good grounds for ob-
jection if they were brutally mistreat-9
ed by the police," he said. "I do not;
wish to condone any attempts to
strangle free speech, but am in-,
clined to believe that these Michigan1
students were not gathered there
merely to express an opinion.1
Must Not Abuse Freedom
"Just as freedom of speech and of'
the press are subject to the limita-
tions that they musit not be abused to
permit the dissemination of slander
or incendiary material, the freedom
of 'ssembly must e orderly and in
the cities is subject to the power of
state and city authorities to forbid
the holding of meetings where they
might impede traffic or business or
are likely to cause disorder," he de- I
clarde yesterday.
The recent action in Detroit in re-
stricting demonstrations to certain
localities was not an abridgement of
the right of peaceable assembly be-.
cause it was obvious that violence was.
likely to result from May Day pa-
rades, Dean Bates believes.
The whole affair of the participa-
tion of the students in the May Day
"junket" is ridiculous if an attempt
is made to tie it to an attack on
American institutions, he said. "Such
an attack is inferred in the attitude
taken by many newspapers. Those
participating are more to be laughed
at than censured."
Alumnus Review Judged
