Pollock Declares
German Press Is,
Hitler Mouthpiece

Scores Nazi Newspapers
In Talk Before Press
People Ignorant Of
Important Matters
Meeting Of Editors To Be
Concluded At Morning

New French Premier

The German press has become a
news organ of the Nazis, and is now
one of the principal factors in re-
ducing the people of that country to
complete acceptance of the orders
and political philosophy of Der Fueh-
rer, and absolute ignorance of inter-
national and national matters affect-
ing them, declared Prof. James K.
Pollock of the political science depart-
ment yesterday to the afternoon ses-
sion of the University Press Club of
"The newspapers have become the
publicity agent of the Nazi party," he
explained. "That is how the German
people have been so easily convnced
that the Nazi movement is so won-
One Side Of Scene
"One impression which one cannot
fail to carry away, when looking at
one side of the German scene, is the
complete psychological regeneration
of the German people," said Profes-
sor Pollock. The people are cheer-
' ful, confident, hopeful; they have
regained their self-respect. He told
the gathering that this summer he
noticed less unemployment, and the
"almost complete absence of any dis-
tress," and said that the undoubted
respect for authority and the love
of country which has been re-aroused
is what is carrying the country
through its extreme crisis."
Other Side
On the other side of the picture,
Professor Pollock pointed out, the
economic policy of Germany isicarry-
ing the people to ruin. Dr. Schacht,
their financial dictator, is forced to
play a waiting game, with the hope
that he can restore a favorable com-
mercial standing with the world at
large, at present withheld from Ger-
In this respect Professor Pollock
condemned the policies of discrimina-
tion and terrorism which have isolated
Germany from the rest of the world,
and have undone all that had been
accomplished by Bruening and
Stresemann to restore post-war Ger-
many to a position of respect in the
eyes of the world.
He especially deplored the ruin of
the German universities wrought by
t h e government's discrimination
against intellectual leaders who were
not 100 per cent Nazis, and the des-
truction of Germany's leadership of
intellectual and scientific leadership
by this move.
Complete Censorship
Returning to the power of the press,
he spoke of the complete censorship
of all information in Germany, and
especially of the creation of a unique
governmental structure, "The Min-
istry of Propoganda and Pulic En-
lightenment," which has been estab-
lished in Germany under the leader-
ship of "the genius of mob psycholo-
gy, Dr. Goebbels." Other changes in
governmental structure and method
which he mentioned as commendable
were the change to executive-minded
rather than legislature-minded gov-
ernment, the abolition of the useless
states, and the complete monopoly
of one party, united with the state,1
in time of crisis.
"Nothing New"
Discussing the political philosophy
of the Nazi party, Professor Pollock
remarked that no point of it was in
any way new to the history of political
thought. First in the platform came
a campaign against the Jews, painted
by the Nazis as a corruptors of Ger-
man blood and character. The Jews,
he stated, were used by the Nazis as
scape goats to be blamed for the ruin
of post-war Germany.
Next on the party, credo stands au-
thoritarianism, or the "Fuehrer Prin-
zip," in which the line of authority
comes not from the people to the
government, but from the govern-
ment to the people, while the respon-
sibility is one from the bottom to the
top, and not the opposite, he said.
But although Hitler's movement is
based on the autocratic principle,

R.O.T.C. Has Gone
Practical-Old Lids
And Spurs Are Out
No longer will the egg-shaped hats
of former years decorate our future
generals' craniums, it was revealed
yesterday as the new R.O.T.C. uni-
forms arrived.
A new, cadet-style cap has been
ordered, corresponding in color with
the much deeper hue of this year's
uniforms. The jingling of martial
spurs will also be absent this year,
as boots are out, and slacks are in.
Oxfords have replaced the long, and
generally uncomfortable, leather cases
of former years.
Another missing feature will be the
solicitude with which the cadet offi-
cers have heretofore guarded their
own bright, new sabres. The mili-
tary science department has an-
nounced its intent to provide sabres
for the officers, thus eliminating the
need for disturbingly hauling them in
and out of philosophy courses and
lab sections.
*Truly an era of clanking has come
to an end, but the new officers may
still decorate their brawny and pad-
ded chests with many shining medals,
the rattling of which may be some
consolation. Rumor has it that thesej
new coats are fully equipped with
medal supports across each chest.

Picard Begs
For Harmony
Within Party
Believes Democratic Loss
Caused By Dissension In
a Own Ranks
States Lacy, Abbott
Must Stop Talking
Quarrels Among Leaders
Prevented Showing Of
United Front
(By Associated Press)
Frank A. Picard, defeated Demo-
cratic candidate for the United States
Senate, today addressed a plea for
peace to his party in general, and in
particular to Judge Arthur J. Lacy,
defeated nominee for governor, and
Horatio J. Abbott, Michigan's Demo-
cratic national committeeman.
"My advice to Lacy and Abbott is
that they should stop talking," Pic-
ard said at his home i Saginaw. "We I
were defeated because of quarrels inx
our own ranks during the past six I
months. If we had shown a united
front, we would have carried Mich-
Picard's statement came after Ab-
bott had charged the Democratic de-
feat to the "brazen effrontery of a
group of self-seekers headed by Mr.
Lacy," and after Lacy, in a long state-
ment, replied that the party could be
rehabilitated by shelving Abbott and
his friends.
Blames Dissension
Picard attributed his own defeat
largely to dissension within the party,
although he added that "to win by a
majority of about 44,000 is not a vic-
tory for a Republican senator in Mich-
igan, a man who has been at Wash-
ington for six years, who is a presi-
dential possibility, and who straddled
on the New Deal." He said he had
worked for two months before the
election to restore harmony to Mich-
igan Democracy, and would continue
his efforts.
Abbot's attack to which Picard re-
ferred was to the effect that Lacy
"succeeded in disrupting the Demo-'
cratic party in the state and alienat-
ed the support of thousands of loyal
Democrats and many thousands of
independent voters who otherwise
would have voted the Democratic
ticket - especially if it were headed a
by Gov. William A. Comstock, whoI
was entitled to the nomination."

Pierre Flandin,
Nlew Premier,
Programi Includes Fight
Against Depression And
PARIS, Nov. 9 -(A")- Pierre Etien-
ne Flandin, newest "truce" premier,
promised the Nation tonight to fight
the depression, while aged Gaston
Doumergue went back into the re-
tirement from which he was called
to rescue France from Civil War.
Flandin's program, with which he
hoped to win the backing of France's
watching millions, included these im-
portant points:
1. Continuation of the policy of
political truce inaugurated when Feb-
ruary's bloody Stavisky riots scared
politicians into agreement.
2. A fight against poverty and
3, Economy in government.
4. Rapid adoption of the 1935,
5. Strengthening of the authority1
of the State.
Compromises on Constitution
His program, in general, resem-
bled Doumergue's. There was, how-
ever, one important difference.
Doumergue gave constitutional re-
vision prominent place. He insisted
that his plan, which would have
stripped the Senate of power to dis-
solve the Chamber and given it to the
President and Premier, should be
voted before the budget. On this rock
his ship of state was wrecked, for the
powerful Radical Socialists, headed
by Vice Premier Edouard Herriot, re-
fused to support him.
Flandin's program relegates con-
stitutional revision to secondary place,
with the result that his government
is assured of an adequate majority
when it faces the Chamber of Depu-
ties Tuesday.
Flocking to his support today were
the Radical Socialists, who got eight
portfolios in the government as
against the six they held under Dou-
mergue; the Republican Federation;
the Popular Democrats; the Social
Republicans; the Republicans of the
Left and the Radical Left.
In the Senate, as well, the majority
of political factions have adopted
resolutions favorable to the new gov-
