Badgley Claims '
Professor Defends Policy
Of Supervised Sports As
Defending supervised athletics as
the best safeguard against injury to
youths, Prof. Carl E. Badgley of the
surgery department in his radio ad-G
dress yesterday over Station WJR,
said that the injuries were greatly
Professor Badgley pointed out that'
only three per cent of all men partici-
pating in intercollegate sports re-
ceive serious or possibly serious injur-
ies. Included in these serious injur-
ies, he said, are sprains and broken
bones, which are not usually serious

individual, but are an uncomforable
Debunking the policy of newspapers
to attribute large numbers of deaths
during the football season to football,'
Professor Badgley said, "Investiga-
tion of most of these reported deaths
from football has shown that the
game of football itself produced very
few of them, majority of the cases
dying from infections or street acci-
dents while playing with a football
in the street. The only association
the football game had with most of
these deaths was the ball itself."
He pointed out that at the Univer-
sity during the winter season, the an-
nual toll of serious accidents from the
unorganized sports of skiing and
coasting is not only greater numeric-
ally than'occur in all of the competi-
tive varsity activities for the entire
year, but the injuries sustained are of
a more serious nature.
"All athletic injuries," Professor
Badgley stated, "are not the result
of violence. Improper training, faulty
form, or misdirected zeal may pro-
duce athletic injuries."
According to Professor Badgley, at
the University, athletics have been
singularly free from serious injur-
ies. "Since 1919," he asserted, "I
have been more or less closely asso-
ciated with the serious athletic injur-
ies occurring both in varsity and

Fternity Vault Yields Records
Of Original Aims And Principles
' By DAVID G. MACDONALD
University authorities would find
nothing of which to complain in fra-
ternities if those bodies still lived up
to the principles and precepts under
which they were originally organized
if the situation may be judged by the
faded relics which have recently been
unearthed in a fraternity vault.
The abstracts which were copied
from the constitutions of a fraternity
still prominent on the campus are in
the handwriting and bear the signa-
ture of the late O. N. Chaffee, '56E,
prominent San Francisco engineer,
and were evidently secured in the days
when fraternities made great efforts
to discover each other's secrets.
This fraternity, according to its
constitution, designated itself as a
society and declared that "The object
of this elect society shall be the cul-
4,,,+, .,fnr,.411" T
fiction. In addition, one member
was to specialize in Christianity. Crit-
ics were appointed for the purpose of
producing "criticisms on the produc-
tions of their departments."
Real unity of spirit is echoed in'
the provision that each member "shall'
be friendly and with secret advice
endeavor to correct the faults of any
other member and all shall act as
brethren in the same family."
In order, evidently, to preserve for
future members the literary master-.
pieceso concocted, it was further pro-
vided that " each new member shallI
copy into a book provided by the
secretary his literary products, if
thought-worthy, after the critic has
looked ever them."
The motivating spirit of this fra-
ternity - the drive for the deeper
and finer of the -intellectual aspects
of life- is clearly depicted in the
oath required of new members whichj
demands, in part, "Do you solemnly I
promise that in the department to!
which you shall be assigned by the
voice of the society, your sole object
shall be investigation and aim at the
truth, and that for this purpose you
will not spare time, trouble nor re-
search, and that you will do all in
your power to render your essays
pleasing and instructive?"
It might be suggested that English
composition teachers demand the
same of prospective students.
AT THE LYDIA MENDELSSOHN
An Art Cinema League Production
"Chapayev" is a veritable reviewer':
holiday, because it is without doubt
one of the most outstanding picture:
ever seen in America; and;even the
most discerning of critics would praise
its unique magnificence and its spell-
The picture is concerned with the
spectacularly naive career of the Rus-
sian revolutionist, Chapayev, and por-
trays incidents of his life in the most
suave and yet simple and direct way
that one unconsciously takes in the
whole peasant attitude and at the
same time receives entertainment
which is at first strange, then exciting,
and finally superb.
The most striking features of "Cha-
payev," to the American audience, are
the complete absence of anything re-
sembling Hpllywood tactics, the ro-
bust. powerful, indigeneously Russian
design and presentation, and the
seemingly genuine, wholesome, and
realistic attitude of the conception,
the acting, and the photography. The
Art Cinema League, in presenting
such a picture as this, accomplishes
well its purpose. -C.B.C.
HELENA, Mont., March 1-(IP)-
The State Senate concurred today in
a House measure providing for the
substitution of the lethal chamber for
the gallows in Montana.
Some members of the committee
said today that both the investiga-
tion and the framing of the security
:egislation were jobs which would re-
wire the committee's full time for a
long period. They expressed con-
_ ern over the situation.
With NRA critics pressing the com-
nittee for a full inquiry into charges
zf monopoly and oppression senators
friendly to the social security plan
feared it would be pushed aside for
an indefinite period.
On the other hand, some of those
interested in the NRA inquiry were
apprehensive lest the social security
legislation interfere with a "full and
free" inquiry into the recovery ad-
ministration. However, Chairman
Harrison. (Dem., Miss.) promised
"full, open and complete" hearings.
A meeting of the committee was set
for next Tuesday.
Senator LaFollette, one of those
fearful that a jam would result from
the situation, tried recently to get
the finance committee to work on the
social security program in order to get
it out of the way before the NRA

The story of "The Emperor's New
Clothes" is a Hans Christian Ander-
son fairy tale, played in "a country
much like China." It is the old story
of Zar and Zahn who wove such ex-
cellent imaginary cloth that no one
dared deny seeing it.

It is not every day of the week that
an adult has the opportunity to see
both a play and an audience at their
best. This fairy story has made a good
play, for Han is a satisfactory villian
and there are two heroes. To see chil-
dren react to both these types is re-
laxation to any one. The play will be
shown twice this afternoon.
