Bill Passec
Forceful Minority Lead
Debate Against Measure
Party Lines Forgotten
Small Labor Body
Attends Hearing

Communist Party Denied
Place On Ballot By Bill
Before Senate
LANSING, April 24. - (') - A bill
designed to put teeth in Michigan's
warfare against Communism swept
through the Senate today by a vote
of 21 to 11.
The membership sent to the House
the drastic Dunkel-Baldwin anti-com-
munism measure making it a felony
to advocate the overthrow of the gov-
ernment in any manner.
A forceful minority led a bitter de-
bate against the measure. The argu-
ment transcended party lines and at
times even went over into personality
channels. Heading the fight against
the bill was the veteran minister, Sen.
C. Jay Town (Rep., North Adams) and
Sen. John Luecke (Dem., Escanaba).
Small Labor Delegation
Contrary to expectations there was
no large delegation of labor delegates
in the galleries to hear the debates:
A group of delegates who came to
Lansing two nights ago and demanded
a public hearing sent a two-member
committee here for the, debate today.
They were the Rev. John H. Bollens
and Arthur Kent, Detroit. The two
men sat silently during the long de-
bate. A half-dozen plainclothes po-
licemen were scattered in the gallery
to guard against any violence.
The Senate delayed consideration :
on a companion measure intended to
keep the Communist party off the
election ballot. Democrats have served
notice they are opposed to the bill.
Provision For Change
As the measure left the Senate
a felony charge could be preferred
against any person advocating the
overthrow of government, joining a
society of such principles, participat-
ing in literature where the overthrow
of government is advocated, or dis-
tributing literature of such advocacy.
Labor delegates opposing the measure
claimed it would confer too much au-
thority on police and would give them
a new weapon to break up strike meet-
ings and similar gatherings.
N S.L. Votes To
Hold Meeting
On May First
The National- Student League,
meeting last night in the Union,
voted unanimously to join with the
local labor organization in a demon-
stration on the steps of the Court
House on May 1, despite the with-
holding of permission for such a
meeting by Mayor Robert A. Camp-
bell last night. /
"We won't allow them to hold such
a meeting," Mayor Campbell de-
clared. "The Board of Supervicors
at its last meeting passed a resolution
giving the city the right to police
the entrances to County buildings.
The lawn about the Court House has
just been seeded at great expense, and
we can't allow anybody to spoil it,
Democrats, Republicans, or radicals
Plans for organized opposition to
the Dunckel-Baldwin anti-commu-
nist bills and for the organization of
a National Student League paper
were also made.
Robert A. Cummins, '37, was ap-
pointed managing editor of the paper,
to be called the "Student Review,"
with Joseph D. Feldman, '37, and
Wilbert L. Hindman, Jr., Grad., as
Members of the editorial board. Eu-
gene R. Kuhne, '35, was appointed
business manager.

At Demonstrations
Called 'Interesting'
COLUMBUS, April 24.-- (Big Ten)
--"Students are a funny lot," is the
way Professor Floyd C. Dockeray, de-
partment of psychology at Ohio State
University, approached a question to
explain the antics of students at dem-
"There are no explanations as to
why college students act as they do
at demonstrations. I do believe, how-
ever, that this would be an interesting
study for someone to make. I would
like to know."
Professor Dockeray believes stu-
dents are usually too apathetic and
that a demonstration is beneficial in
that it makes students think. But
there is something strange about the
reactions of student demonstrations in
later years, he says.
"The strange part of the entire af-
fair is that the students who,. lead
these cemonstrations usually change
when they get into the world of real-
ity. Nevertheless they receive some
valuable training in clear thinking
while they are in them," he explained.
Professor Dockeray believes stu-
dents in many respects get much more
out of these demonstrations than the
students who stick to book learning
and neglect the practical happenings
of the world around them.
To illustrate the change that some-
times comes over people, the professor
cited the instance of his friend last
summer. The friend was almost rabid
on the subject of communism. Every
chance he would get he would inject
the subject into the conversation.
Last summer he took a trip to Europe.
Since then he has made no mention
of the subject.
"It just goes to show," he repeated,'
"that people change and that the
dogmas of college students many
times become exploded or warped."

Deliver Talks
To Orientalists'
Karpinsk And Waterman
Address Conference In
Alumni Memorial Hall
Proof that mathematicians and as-"
tronomers of ancient Babylon came
into possession of scientific knowl-
edge heretofore credited to the Greeks
was presented yesterday to the Amer-
ican Oriental Society by Prof. Louis
C. Karpinski of the mathematics de-
partment and Prof. Leroy Water-
man of the division of oriental lan-
guages and literatures.
Addressing the one hundred and'
forty-seventh meeting of the Society,
which met in the Alumni Memorial
Hall, Professors Karpinski and Wat-
erman dubbed their announcement'
"the most revolutionary discovery in
modern times." The proof submittedJ
was in form of a translation of an
old tablet deposited in a Moscow mu-
seum, the significance of which had
been apparently lost in transportation.
"Complicated geometrical, trigono-
metrical, and algebraic problems were
proposed and solved by the Babylon-
ins at least 1,500 years before Eu-
clid," Professor Karpinski declared.
"They succeeded in discovering for-
mulas for finding the area and vol-
ume of a sphere and hemisphere, as
well as for computing chords of a
circle. Their work led directly to the
solution of the quadratic and cubic
Prof. A. T. Olmstead of the Uni-
versity of Chicago Oriental Institute
declared that "It has never been suf-
ficiently recognized that virtually all
the great men of the golden age of
Greece were Orientals."

policies, Premier Andrea Toscheff said
The 70-year-old diplomat, called

There, with funds obtained from
an anonymous donor, he bought for
the library several specimens from
the collection of John B. Stetson,

Prof. Anspach To Launch
New Educational Plan
At Institution
Prof. Charles L. Anspach, dean of
Administration and head of the edu-
cation department at the Michigan
State Normal College in Ypsilanti,
was yesterday appointed president of
Ashland College, Ashland, O.
Professor Anspach, whose resigna-
tion from the Normal college becomes
effective in July, will launch at Ash-
land an educational experiment sim-
ilar to the plan now in use at Chi-
cago University and Harvard. The
plan is, in its essential part, an indi-
vidualization of college curricula to
fit the needs of each student.
Dr. Anspach came to the Ypsilanti
Collee in 1930 as head of the edu-
cation department, taking over the
duties of dean of Administration last
year. A graduate of Ashland, he re-
ceived his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees here
in 1923 and 1930 respectively. Before
coming to the Michigan State Normal,
Professor Anspach was registrar and
head of the education department at
Professor Anspach is at present
working with Prof. Raleigh Schorling
of the School of Education on a book
dealing with problems in supervised
teaching. He is the co-author of two
books on educational psychology and

Revival of Campus
Tradition Planned
Plans for the revival of an old
Michigan tradition which has not
been in force on the campus for many
years - a mass sing - are being car-
ried to completion under the auspices
of the Interfraternity Council. The
sing will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wed-

According to the tentative program
it is planned to begin the sing by
having the band march to its stand.
Members of the Glee Club will be
massed on the Library steps with stu-
dents filling the rest of the area.
The committee of the Council which
is furthering the plans is composed"
of George Y. Duffy, '35, George Dill-
ingham,, '35, and Graham Batting,

that the sing is not being planned as
a substitute for Swingout, permission
for which is still being considered. .

First Chinese Sorority
Established On Campus
The first Chinese sorority in the
United States has been established
on the campus of the University. The
new organization, which aims to bring
Chinese women students in closer so-
cial and intellectual contact, will even-
tually be international in scope, chap-
ters being planned already for Lohdon
and Shanghai.
The new sorority, Sigma Sigma Phi,
will include all Chinese women, native
or foreign born, who are studying
in the United States or foreign col-
legesband universities. The Charter
members, who are Helen F. Vong,
Pearl L. Chen, Lillian Y. Wang, and
Lily Wang, expect that a close union
of students will enable those who re-
turn to China to do better work in
the rebuilding of that nation. Most
Chinese students in foreign countries
study medicine, public health, educa-
tion, or other sciences and return to
practice or teach in Chinese schools
or colleges.
West Relieved
By Rain Storm
In Dust Areas
Most Moisture Received By
Drought Region In Last
Four Years
DENVER, April 24 - (T) - The
drought was broken definitely today
over a wide area of the West.
Some sections reported more mois-
ture than at any time since the West-
ern dry scourge started four years
ago. Snow or rain reports came from
Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico.
Utah, South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin,
Nebraska and Kansas. Parts of the
dust belt, however, had nothing more
promising than dark clouds.
"They sure got the Indian weather
sign on us," sighed F. O. Case, Baca
County agent, at Springfield, Colo., as
he received reports that his dust-
blighted southeastern sector was the
only part of the state which failed
to receive moisture.
The North Texas dust zone report-
ed "threatening weather." A part
of the Western Kansas dust country
received showers yesterday.
On Crest Of Divide
The storm today rode the crest of
the continental divide from Montana
to New Mexico, spreading east and
west for a hundred miles into dry
farm and range lands.
Federal crop statisticians in Colo-
rado and Wyoming agreed that the
snow, from a few inches to several
feet in depth, was "the most favor-
able thing that has happened for

Much Rain And Snow
Breaking with a downpour of rain
in Western Nebraska late yesterday,
the storm spread rapidly southward
and to the West. It left a blanket of
new white snow fringing the dust
lands from Lamar, Colo., to the south
and from La Junta, Colo., eastward.
At North Platte, Neb., 1.60 inches
of moisture fell within a few hours
and a flood occurred near Hastings,
Neb., where a section of a railroad
was washed away. One train was al-
most 18 hours late arriving at Denver.
Almost enough rain and snow fell
at Denver within 24 hours to change

the city's moisture deficiency, 1.18
inches for the year, into a surplus.
The ground was so dry, however that
a large portion of the moisture soaked
into the ground as rapidly as it fell.

Of .73 Mill Tax
Measure Is IJp For
Approval In House
Vote To Allot $1,352,267
To State; Separate Bill
Considered In House
LANSING, April 24.- (3)- The
Senate passed a bill today to give the
University of Michigan an annual
appropriation of $4,062,355.
Labelled a "yardstick" measure, the
bill went to the House requiring the
University's appropriation to be levied
on the basis of a .73 mill tax. It
passed the Senate by a 26 to 13 vote
with Senators Case, Doyle and Man-
kowski, all Democrats, the only dis-
Likewise the Senate passed another
bill to "measure" the appropriation for
Michigan State College on the basis
of a .243 mill tax. The vote was 26
to 2. Under the measure, M.S.C.
would receive $1,352,267 annually.
Case Leads Opposition
Minority leaders Leon D. Case, lead-
ing the opposition to the University
appropriation; characterized the in-
stitution as a "rich man's university'
and claimed the bill would be a dis-
crimination against other educational
institutions. He said the University's
appropriation had been reduced only
18 per cent during the depression
while Western State Teachers College
had suffered a cut of 40 per cent in
the same perio4.
"I would like to see the payroll of
the University," Case shouted. "They
just come down here and ask for a
lump and never give the Legislature
any information about their big sal-
Several Alumni Present
Several alumni of the University
in the Senate rushed to the defense
of the appropriation. Chairman Ar-
thur D. Wood, of the finance com-
mittee, said that appropriations for
the care of indigent patients 'at the
University Hospitals should not be
considered a part of the institution's
fund. He said the University actual-
ly spent $4,080,000 last year by using
reserve funds and past obligations
due it.
Bills are pending in the House
which woud make specific appropria-
tions of $3,200,000 for the University
and $1,200,000 for M.S.C.

Hospital School Gives Children
Chance To Continue Education,

Hospitalization should be no bar-
rier to the education of children, said
Mrs. Edith Milnes of the University
Hospital, in describing the work of
the special education department.
"Our objective is to keep Jimmy,
Johnny, and Mary as close to normal
boys and girls as we can in a very
unusual situation."
That the child patient is apt to
baecome a part of the hospital and to
accept its vocabularly in preference
to that of his home and family, is
shown by the small boy who called
to one of the ward workers, "I'm not
'taminated,' just 'sposed'." In the
University Hospital, there is an ex-
cellent preventative to hospitaliza-
tion in the form of a very complete
and adept social service department,
under the direction of Miss Dorothy
Should a visitor step from the ele-
vator onto the ninth floor of the Uni-
versity H-osital. it is not the least

see the material with which 'the
children work, and hear the general
cry of, "Here come the play ladies
(ward workers) ," by less fortunate
little brothers and sisters who look
forward with great anxiety to the
coming of those good samaritans.
But this work in the shops is supple-
mentary to the regular academic work
which is under the supervision of Miss
Geraldine Notley, and which is a
regular part of the state course of
study. The -academic work includes
all grades from the primary to the
eleventh. There is also work in the
senior high school, but the courses
studied by each student are those of
his own local institution.
Each teacher must have her state
teacher's certificate, just as if she
were teaching a class in a public
school, for the Hospital School is di-
rectly assigned to the Office of Pub-
lic Instruction and choice of text-
books and methods of teaching must
be approved by Prof. L. W. Keeler as
