Says Germany Never Did
See Versailles Treaty As
Legal Obligation
(Continued from Page 1)
trne that a treaty remains in force
only as long as things remain sub-
stantially as they were when the
treaty was signed. Germany says
conditions at present are different
than they were in 1918, and cites the
Soviet army of 1000,000 men as one
of the more obvious aspects of this
These first two justifications of
German rearmament are appeals to
positive international law, Professor
Preuss continued, but more general
claims are not.
One of these general claims is Hit-
ler's statement that all soverign states
have a right to equality or Gleichber-
echtigung and the maintenance of
national honor. Germany asserts
that equality and honor are so funda-
mental that any treaty violating them
is ipso facto null and void.
It is interesting to note, Professor
Preuss said, that this appeal to equal-
ity comes from liberal democratic
sources, and is one Germany will
nake only so long as she deems her-
self to be under-privileged. Once
equality is achieved she will turn to
other theories which are no less
prominent in National Socialist polit-
ical thought.
Believe Racial Superiority
These other theories revolve around
the thesis of the racial superiority
of the Nordics or Aryans and belief
that true law is possible only among
persons of that race. This is a wide-
spread theory in Germany, Professor
Preuss said, and there is a strong de-
mand that Roman law be abolished
because it is a product of the "jewi-
fled materialistic Roman Empire."
This theory, extended to interna-
tional law, would deny the legal val-
-idity -of treaty obligations to non-
Nordic nations. This view, accord-
ing to Professor Peuss, does away
with any international law. The
G'ermans reason that since the Nord-
ics are superior and the only race
capable of creative genius, they are
released from any obligations to other
As Germany grows stronger, Pro-
fessor Preuss said, it may be expected
she will forget equality, and assert
German superiority, bound by no
higher ties than German national
Involves Eastern Expansion
These theories translated into con-
crete actions, Professor Preuss said,
would seem to involve expansion to
the east at the expense of "inferior
Slavic peoples," as advocated by Hit-
ler in his book, "Mein Kampf."
This will also involve the creation
of a greater Germany of 80 million
persons, comprising all Germanic peo-
ples in Europe. This greater Ger-
many will be made at the expense of
France, Belgium, the Netherlands,
Denmark, Lithuania, Poland, Czecho-
Slovakia, Austria, Jugo-Slavia, and

Business School To Emphasize Crane In Hunt
Insurance In New Program zFor Franklin
Pg~~1 Wih

Officer's Lights

The announcement of a program
designed to give to students special-
izing in acturial science a well-
rounded training in the business and
economic aspects of insurance was
made today by Prof. W. 0. Menge
of the mathematics department and
Dean C. E. Griffin of the School of
Business Administration.
The program comprises a thorough
training in mathematics with empha-
sis upon the mathematics of insur-
ance and statistics such as heretofore
has been offered in the actuarial
science curriculum. Dean Griffin ex-
plained that in addition it includes
the basic courses and a number of
advanced courses in business ad-
ministration and leads to the two de-
grees of Bachelor of Arts and Master
of Business Administration.
It was stated that those students
who follow the suggested program
and who qualify for the combined
curriculum in Letters and Business
Administration can complete the
course in five years, the usual time
required for the actuarial science
course alone. Students who do notl
avail themselves of the combined cur-'
riculum but who wish to follow the
suggested program will normally fmin-
ish it in six years. The actuarial part
of the program can still be completed


training as much as does the ac-E
tuarial side of the business.
"Insurance today is a very large
business, and as a result insurance
companies have available a range of
positions quite comparable to that of
other large businesses. It is hopedJ
that the preparation in both the gen-
eral business and actuarial aspects of
insurance will increase the usefulness
of men going into the business and
will enhance their individual oppor-
tunities," Dean Griffin said.

plains. "First, we know that Frank-
lin tended to use the same pseu-
donyms over and over again, such
as 'F.B.,' 'N.N.,' 'F.+S.,' or 'Benev-
olus.' Although the use of one of
these pseudonyms is by no means con-
clusive proof, it is at least suggestive.
"Secondly, we have what is called
internal evidence. This includes an
analysis of the literary style, figures'
of speech, economy of material, types
of argument, etc., and a comparison
of each of these with the same qual-
ities of Franklin's known work .
"Third; we find that ideas tend to
appear and reappear in various forms
in Franklin's many writings. From
his voluminous notes, we find the
draft of articles that appear in ex-
panded form later. We thus know
pretty well what his ideas were, and if
a suspected work exhibits a thought
that was referred to in Franklin's
I notes, it may be significant. We also
know the papers to which he reg-
ularly contributed, and expect to find
more articles of his in them."
But there is considerable difficulty,

In a state of deep dejection after
a week's fruitless search for the miss-
ing headlights of their sergeant's car,
Ypsilanti police were prepared last
night to call their hunt a failure.
Not as ambitious as the person who
absconded with an entire Ann Arbor
police scout car last fall, someone
took only the lights of the sergeant's
automobile. The sergeant, upon dis-
covering the loss, reported to him-
self, being in charge of the Ypsilanti
police, and set out on a quest.
At one time it was reported that a
state-wide headlight inspection was to
be instituted, but as the state police
admitted, "one headlight is a lot like
whether Franklin is copying himself,
or whether a plagiarist has been at
work. Furthermore, not unless a sus-
pected article meets all of the three
requirements is it definitely identified.
Professor Crane will reveal the
results of his several years' study
of manuscripts in the William Clem-
ents Library, the Yale library, and
the American Philosophical Society in
Philadelphia, in a series of addresses
at Brown University, under the terms
of the Colver lectureship for 1935,
which he was recently awarded.

Book On Flora
Is Published
By University
"The Lichen Flora," a manual of
the species of the United States, writ-
ten by the late Prof. Bruce Fink of
Miami University in Oxford, O., and'
prepared for publication by his for-
mer assistant, Mrs. Joyce Hedrick
Jones, has just been published by the
University Press, it was announced
yesterday by Dr. Frank E Robbins,
editor of the press.
This manual is an extension of
Fink's "Lichens of Minnesota," now
out of print, which was published
by the United States government
through the Smithsonian Institute.
This institute loaned some of the
plates used in the earlier manuscript
to the University for use in "The
Lichen Flora."
Following the professor's death in
1927, the Fink Herbarium of Lichens
was obtained by the University. In
preparing Professori Iink's unfin-
ished manuscript, Mrs. Jones, who is
now a member of the staff of the Uni-
versity Herbarium, has followed the

Dr. Compton has recently been en-
gaged in a scientific "controversy"
with Dr. Robert MNllikan, famed
California physicist. In explaining
it, he said:
"I hold that cosmic rays are com-
posed of particles of matter. Dr.
Millikan says they are composed of
waves. I believe I have been able
to substantiate my theory."
University physicists point out that
Millikan has recently come around to
Dr. Compton's way of thinking.
Regarding the origin of the cosmic
ray, the Nobel Prize winner stated
that "I have not been able to decide.
I suppose that I am inclined .to the
belief that cosmic rays result from a
disintegrating Universe, resulting
when particles of matter are anni-
hilated by collision. Dr. Millikan
opposes this, contending that cosmic
rays are formed by a bulding-up Uni-
