Robert L. Taylor, '36E, won the
Sigma Rho Tau Story Telling con-
test held recently at the Union. Taylor
talked about what a speaker, governor
and politician really would like to tell
their audiences rather than what they
really do tell them.
Robert T. Cousins, '37E took second
place in the contest with a story
about a French duel. Mr. Cousins, the
"second" at the duel, found it was
safer to stand in front of the duelist
than behind him. "The Mask of the
Red Death" by Poe was the story
told by George F. Wahl, '36E, to win
the third place in the contest.
Harold A. Davis, '36E, won first
place in the "project" contest. He

was not an anateur, but many sur-

united air force for the United States.

made up of three units, the air force,
the army, and the navy. Each would be
separate yet under one main depart-
ment. The third place was awarded

on the future of aircraft in the strato-
Preceding the contests a business

Woodham, '34E, announced that

ciety on that council. An invitation

Motor Company, will be the speaker.

RIho Tau will be held next Wednesday

NEW YORI, May 10. -- "The next
war will wipe out millions when en-
emies spread poison -as in our cities."
This alarming cry of numerous
writers on the future wars, was re-
futed by Prof. Brooks Emeny, student
on international affairs, in an ad-
dress and lecture last week.

Pay Raise Sought
For City Workers
Mayor Robert A. Campbell asked
the budget committee of the city
council to consider a five per cent
increase in wages for city employees
at a committee meeting held recent-
ly. He based his request onrising liv-
1u co:ts and heavier dUties that the
employees are facing.
It is considered likely that the con-
Smittee will take some action on the
matter before submitting the budget
at the next meeting of the city coun-
cil. However the difficulty being en-
countered in straightening out the
city's financial troubles render the
wat e increase improbable.
Approximately $41,000 was tenta-
lively cut from the various depart.-
mnental budgets at. the meeting, the
;ieat-est.slash being one of $6,000 in
the poor depamirnent budget. This de-
partment's estimated budget had al-
ieady been $4,000 lower than last

Eneny, who is colla.boratg with ,
Frank II. Shmnmorids on a book on
world affairs, showed charts detail
ing the resources of leading nations
and the percentage of their self-suf-
ficiency in case of war.
"There is no war the United States
can't control within the range of our
naval influence, which extends down
both sides of North and South Amer-
ica," he said. "If the English speak-
ing powers could see their way clear to
join hands they would control 78 pei
cent of raw materials and would be
able to veto ii <),y war. I mean th1ie
United tates ad Great Britain aii(i
uther states in the British Empire."
So long as civilized people wish
to live in the present world where
"civilization doesn't count," Emeny
saidl he advocated that the United
States begin to stock up supplies of
those things she might need in the
event of war, adding that this coun-
iry already had on hand a three-year
upiliy of recoverable rubber.
"If we had these stock piles we'
could do away with a navy two-thirds
the size of the one we now have and
we can do all the necessary stock pil-
ing at about the cost of one new bat-
tleship," he said.
