Women Should f
The Home, Ale

-Associated Press Photo
Leopold III, newly crowned Belgian King, is shown taking his oath
before both houses of Parliament at Brussels. Leopold, son of the late
King Albert, ascended to the throne following his father's accidental
death last week.

WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 26 -
(P)-Hitler and Mussolini are quite
right when they say that women
should come back into the home, as-
serts Dr. Ales Hrdlicka, world-fa-
mous anthropologist and member of
the Smithsonian Institute staff.
"Furthermore, the sooner Ameri-
can women give up their jobs and
return to their traditional duties -
home, husband, and children - the
sooner they will find happiness," he
says, "and the sooner they will give
back to our national. life something
of the old stability."
Dr. Hrdlicka's conclusions are
based on his years of research into
the rise and fall of races and the
slow evolution of human beings. He
is white-haired now, gentle aid in
discussion insistent that life should
be happy.
Womian Is Pivot
"The longer I live," he says, "the
more I am convinced that woman is
the pivot of all human relationships,
and when she fails in that duty the
entire structure fails.
"I do not insist that women should
not, and connot, work, and work well,
outside their homes. But first they
should have their homes, husbands
and children. Then there should be
room for outside work.
"But it should be work which
comes naturally--all those forms
that consist of 'grooming' the human
race, such as nursing, teaching,
working in the arts, making clothes
and furnishings for the home.
"I shall not name the work for
which I believe them unfitted. That
would be 'calling names.' But every-
one has seen the woman who 'dries
up' on a job, gets old and irritable,
driving herself through, some false
idea about 'doing things.'
"We seem to ignore that nature
created two different beings when it
created men and women.
Co-Education A Sin
"This should be remembered by
educators. Co-education is a ridicu-
lous fad, based on false reasoning.
It is a sin against youth.
"Teachers are not the only ones
in the wrong. Parents are often just'
as guilty. They want their children
to support them so they place thea
emphasis on the wrong things. They
a1 w a y s unconsciously want their
daughters to go out and earn their'
"Another handicap right now isj
the terrible modern yearning for

Come Back Into
?s Hrdiicka Says
comfort. Women want fewer chil-
dren because they fear the pain of
child birth and the hard work of
rearing them. Men fear the respon-
sibility of supporting them.
"But comfort is not happiness. It
is stagnation, degeneration, the loss
of strength.
'These opinions may sound pessi-
mistic. Not at all. Through the ages
the human race always has swung

back and forth from one excess to
another. But Mother Nature is a
harsh mother. Each transgression of
her laws is punished.
Sees Another Change
"When enough people have been
punished often enough in a particu-
lar social trend, then the pendulum
swings back again.
"Maybe both Hitler and Musso--
lini felt this when they issued orders
to the women citizens of their na-
tions to return to their homes and
children. But both of them make
the mistake of believing that human
beings can be changed through de-
"We could swing them safely and
sanely back to the old, correct bal-
ance of the sexes through the right
kind of education for the young.
But that is a long process. First we
must train teachers correctly. They
must train children. And when those
children themselves become parents,
we begin to arrive at the goal. But
it takes two generations.
"Meanwhile, Mother Nature main-
tains the balance in a more severe
manner - through punishment."
Paris Only Smiles At
Pretender rT Throne
PARIS, Feb. 26-(AP)--A mysterious
new pretender to the French throne
introduced himself to amused Paris-
ians through the medium of posters
-One Theodebold Ascaris Merovee,
claiming descent from, Clovis and
the good King Dagobert, threw his
mythical crown in the ring against
the Duc de Guise and Prince Louis
Napoleon, over the signature of the
"Merovingian party,".
Harking back to the middle ages
when "kings were kings," he disputes'
the claims of such "upstarts" as the
Bourbons and Napoleons. The post-
ers neglected to announce when and
where the new pretender would make
a personal debut.

Stavisky Inquiry

Baxter Leaves
For Six-Month
European Trip
Pathology Professor Is To
Conduct Research Study
On Forest Fungi
Prof. Dow V. Baxter, Associate
Professor of Forest Pathology, left
Sunday for Europe on a six-month
sabbatical leave from the University
under grant from the National Re-
search Council for an individual re-
search project on the forest fungi of
northern Europe.
Professor Baxter, who will be gone
until early August, will spend most
of his time in Stockholm, Sweden,
where there is an extensive collec-
tion of fungi in the national mu-
seum, but he expects to visit Denmark
as well.
He has made an extensive study of
forest fungi in the lake states and
has carried on his study in Alaska
during the last two summers. While
in Europe he hopes to continue some
comparisons of the forest fungi of
northern Europe with that which he
has studied in the forest regions of
North America.
At the University the professor has
carried on a study of the locations
of areas infected by Chestnut blight,
and he also carried on some pioneer
work in Michigan some years ago
on the white pine blister rust. Pro-
fessor Baxter, who sails from New
York on March 7, will be accom-
panied on the trip by Justice Cline.
a University student.
