Argentine Projessor Describes
Differences Between Universities

New Plans
For Union
Next Year's Projects Will
Start With Orientation
Week Program
Freshman-Facu ty
Assembly Planned
To Continue Faculty, Stu-
dent Bull Sessions; Ride
Bureau To Be Sponsored
Preliminary plans for projects to
be carried on by the student organi-
zation of the Union were outlined
yesterday by Allen D. McCombs, '35,
The student officers of the organi-
zation will start their year's work
with the opening of Orientation Week
in September. At that time mem-
bers of the executive council and 50
sophomore committeemen will be on
hand to assist incoming freshmen.
In continuing the extensive pro-
gram begun this semester for the at-
tainment of a closer relationship, the
Union will sponsor a Freshman-
Faculty Assembly during Orientation
Week. A group of prominent faculty
members will be present at that
meeting to discuss various subjects
pertaining to their college life with
the freshmen.
To Continue Bull Sessions.
McCombs stated that the daily
student-faculty bull sessions which
were held for several weeks this
spring will be continued again, and
the Wednesday night faculty dinners
will also be promoted for fraternities
expressing a desire to take part in
this activity.
The publicity committee will con-
tinue to publish the Union Daily Bul-
letin and will also issue the monthly
bulletin under a new name, The
Union Monthly Review. It was ex-
plained that the function of the
daily bulletin will be to promote all
campus activities, and, therefore,
space will be given to any organiza-
tion requesting it.
A further service to be given by the
student organization next year will
be the maintenance of a temporary
student directory by means of a fil- I
ing card system. This will be avail-
able for the use of students until the'
official directory appears.
To Have Voter's Bureau.
Immediately after classes begin thei
organization will start work on the
absentee voters' bureau, which will be
run for students from all states hav-
ing gubernatorial and Congressional
elections. It was emphasized that
in order to be able to take advantage
of this service students must be prop-
erly registered voters before they
leave their homes.
The Union will also sponsor a ride
bureau prior to both the spring and
Christmas vacations. It will accomo-
date students desiring to fill their
cars with passengers, as well as those
seeking rides for themselves.
In addition, McCombs stated, a
more extensive series of tournamentsl
will be carried on by the house com-t
mittee with competition being spon-
sored in bowling, billiards, ping-pong,I
swimming, and bridge. A team will
again be entered in the Intercolleg-f
late Billiard Tournament.E
To Have Open House.-
Included on the social program fort
the coing year will be the regularc
Friday and Saturday night member-
ship dances in the ballroom and thet
annual Open House, which will bev

held just prior to Thanksgiving Day.
'There will also be a series of forums
at which prominent men will addressk
students. An effort will be made toN
hold these once a month, officialst
McCombs announced that the new1
members of the executive council will
not be assigned to definite commit-
tee positions until next fall. As in
the past the five student committees1
will be the cooperative, house, public-
ity, dance, and reception groups.
Chairmanships of these units willt
rotate among the council members.
Students Dismissed
On Handbill Charge
The two students who were picked
up by police Wednesday for passing
handbills among the Memorial Day 1

"The main difference between the
universities of Argentina and those
of the United States is one of prac-
tical training," said Dr. R. B. Novelli
of the University of Buenos Aires yes-
terday in an interview.
"The universities of Argentina have
not yet attained that point in edu-
cation where practical experience
given to the student can compare with
that offered here," he explained. Uni-
versities in Argentina, of which there
are four; Buenos Aires, the largest,
with 20,000 students, La Plata, Cor-
doba, Tucuman, and Litoral, are open
to anyone, Dr. Novelli said. Although
they are supported mainly by the gov-
ernment and are comparable to our
state universities, they nevertheless
maintain a unitary independence
which prevents excessive government
The Medical School with which Dr.
Novelli is connected at Buenos Aires
is typical of the other Argentine in-,

stitutions in that classes are taught
solely -by professors, there being no
position of instructor. Only one exam-
ination in each course is held during
the year, this being a comprehensive
test given at the conclusion of the par-
ticular study, Dr. Novelli pointed out.
Praising the spirit of the students
and faculty here, Dr. Novelli declared
that he was impressed by the co-op-
erative attitude prevalent in the class-
rooms, laboratories, and lecture halls.
Dr. Novelli is a professor of organic
chemistry at the Universities of Bue-
nos Aires and La Plata, and with Pro-
fessor Houssay of the former insti-
tution, he has done experimental work
on hormones.
Dr. Novelli came here as a result of
scholarships from the Rockefeller
Foundation and the Academia De
Medicine of the University of Buenos
Aires. Previously visiting the Univer-
sity of Illinois, -Dr. Novelli is now
carrying on research in conjunction
with Dr. Nelson of the Medical School.

Houses Passes
Silver Bill By
Large Majority
Senate Leaders To Take.It
Up As Soon As Tariff Bill
Is DisposedOf
WASHINGTON, May 31. - (P)-
The Administration silver purchase
bill - the first such measure since
1893 which had White House approval
- was passed today by the House and
sent to the Senate by the overwhelm-
ingly favorable vote of 263 to 77.
Senate Democratic leaders planned
to take it up immediately after dis-
posal of the pending tariff bill. They
anticipate no difficulty in sending the
measure to the White House for Pres-
ident Roosevelt's signature.
The principal provision of the silver
program directs the secretary of the
treasury to buy the metal until it
constitutes 25 per cent of the metallic
monetary stock.
Treasury experts have estimated
that it will be necessary to buy about
300,000,000 ounces to attain the 25
per cent ratio. The present silver re-
serve of 690,000,000 ounces comprises
about 12 per cent of the monetary
Proponents of the bill believe the
purchasers will raise the price of silver
and expand the currency although
the amount of that expansion will be
limited probably to the money spent
in acquiring the silver reserve.

Glider completes
SchoolP Year With
. No Bad Crack-ups
Barring any quirks of fortune dur-
ing the next few days, the University
Franklin Utility Gilder will have
completed a full year of service with-
out any major mishaps.
For four years the scarred ship has'
nestled embryo Lindberghs in its
cockpit, during which time it has
suffered many a broken wing, fuse-
lage, or tail assembly.
The fledgling flyers, trusting too
much in its magic powers, have at-
tempted at various times to land the
ship about 10 feet underground, with
the resulting mishaps. But under
the skillful fingers of glider "sur-
geons" at the glider factory in Ypsi-
lanti, the faithful ship has always re-
covered and returned to its place at
the head of the runway.
Despite the fact that hardly an
original spar remains on the ship, it
soared to several championship
flights in the National Glider Meet in
Elmira, N. Y., last summer. With
Stanley Smith and Floyd Sweet at.
the controls, the ship won sweepstake
honors for the University, Smith win-
ning first in all-around gliding while
Sweet won several further honors.
This summer the glider will again
be shipped to Elmira, there to spread
its wings again for further honors.

HOLLYWOOD, May 31. - (I) -
Lew Cody, film actor and husband of
the late Mabel Normand, was found
dead in his home today. Death was
apparently due to a heart attack.
The actor's butler, James Glen,
summoned police. An ambulance sur-
geon said the 47-year-old actor had
been dead about 10 hours.
The body was found in a bedroom
on the second floor of the palatial
residence by the butler and Lee Wes-
termann, Cody's masseur. Cody was
clad in pajamas and was lying ap-
parently peacefully asleep. The but-
ler summoned police, who with the
police surgeon arrived a few minutes
after the discovery of the body.
"We didn't think there was any-
thing wrong for a second," the butler
said, "and then we realized he had
passed away."

Congress To
Decide Labor
Troubles Soon
Strikes Are Continuing In
Many Industrial Centers
Of Country
The differences between capital and
labor were laid on Congress tables
Thursday as arbiters struggled to
stave off and settle strikes that are
threatening to brake the wheels of
Major developments in the efforts
to maintain the present pace of pro-
duction included:
WASHINGTON - Hugh S. John-
son, NRA administrator, held par-
leys with representatives of steel and
textile workers in an attempt to pre-
vent walkouts. M. F. Tighe, presi-
dent of the Amalgamated Associa-
tion of Iron, Steel, and Tin Workers,
announced that he was standing on
an edict to strike June 16 unless the
members voted otherwise at a new
convention he proposed to call. E.
J. Forbeck, leader of the "rank and
file" faction of the union, asserted
his favor of going through with the

walkout in spite of President Roose-
velt's declaration that there would be
elections at the steel mills under gov-
ernment supervision.
BELTON, S. Car. -About 500 em-
ployes of the Belton textile mills left
their machines, asserting they had
been overtaxed with work and that
union men had been discharged. The
plant, employing approximately 1,000
persons, shut down.
TOLEDO - One-third of the 900
national guardsmen rushed to Tole-
do to quell riots which grew out of a
strike at the Electric Auto-Lite Co.
were ordered withdrawn and the re-
mainder directed to stations in th
armory. There were no indications of
the recurrence of the battles which
cost two lives and caused more than
200 injuries, Federal mediators strove
to avert a walkout of the employes
of the Toledo Edison Co. after it
had been deferred one day.
SAN FRANCISCO - The strike of
25,000 longshoremen and other wa-
terfront workers along the Pacific
coast remained at an impasse after
Sunday's riots in which two dozen
persons were injured.

The University R.O.T.C. regiment
has received orders announcing the
transfer of three of its instructors,
who, it is expected will be replaced
next fall.
Captain A. B. Custis, Ordnance of-
ficer has been ordered to report to the
Savannah Ordnance Depot at Savan-
nah, Ill. Captain C. A. Powell, who for
the past five years has been in charge
of the University Signal Corps, has
been transferred to the Army Indus-
trial College in Washington, D. C.,
where he will become a student.
Captain R. H. Lord, completing his
sixth year at the University, has also
been transferred to Washington,
where he will become the assistant
to the executive officer, of the Na-
tional Board for the Promotion of
Rifle Practice.
The University's R.O.T.C. personnel
will be stationed at the various train-
ing camps this summer. Captain
Powell and Custis will be instructors
at Fort Sheridan, Ill., and Raritan Ar-
senal, N. J. respectively, and Lieu-
tenant Coursey will be an instructor
at Camp Custer, Mich., as will Ser-
geants D. G. Bonnewell and K. O.

FERA Students Get Aid And Do Much
For University, Director Gram Claims

In the opinion of Prof. Lewis M.,
Gram, head of the department of civil
engineering and director of the com-
mittee on University Federal Emer-
gency Relief Administration, and in
the opinions of nearly every faculty
member who was at all connected with
it, the FERA work in the University,
which ends June 15, has been most
successful and profitable.
Not only did it help 752 students to
continue their University education,
but the FERA also proved to be of in-
valuable aid in the fields of research,
faculty assistance, and gathering data.
The majority of these students, Pro-
fessor Gram said, were assigned to
projects recommended by members of
the faculty. He divided these projects
into three groups, among which the

was done in the departments of so-
ciology, geography, hygiene and public
health, landscape design, and in the
Schools of Forestry and Education.
In the School of Forestry, for ex-
ample, FERA students have com-
pletely mapped' two 'townships in
Washtenaw County for game cover,
some timber stand, and University
Forestry property, as well as comput-
ing data on decay of the Northern
white cedar and composing more than
100 statistical charts.
FERA workers in the department of
landscape design made a topograph-
ical map of the Arboretum, and as a
part of the Washtenaw County Plan-
ning project, began a survey of recrea-
tional spots throughout the area. Pro-
fessor Walp of that department called

nishing faculty assistance have made
themselves indispensable, Professor
Gram said, was "due to the fact the
University budget had to abolish near-
ly all such aid." Especially in the en-
gineering college, in the departments
of zoology, in various museums, and
in the Registrars Office, students have
served in this capacity.
Professor Gram will shortly request
a c mprehensive report from all de-
partments where FERA students are
employed, he says. Then he will in
turn prepare other reports to send to
Lansing and Washington. His Wash-
ington report, which he said will be
favorable, may have considerable ef-
fect on the reinstitution of the FERA
in colleges and universities in the fall,
it is believed.
With regard to this renewal when
