Dennison Speaks

Before 4,000


12th Convocation

Democratic Government's
Right To Control Private
Business Is Upheld
Says Government
Is Not Interfering
Contends Structure Must
Be Regarded As Organ
Of Total Society
The right of democratic govern-
ment to regulate and control private
business in the interests of society
was upheld yesterday by Henry Stur-
N gis Dennison, president of the Denni-
son Manufacturing Company, Fram-
ingham, Mass., in an address before
more than 4,000 students and fac-
ulty members at the 12th annual Uni-
versity Honors Convocation.
Speaking on "Business and Gov-
ernment," Mr. Dennison asserted.
that "one of the most common opin-
ions among business men is based
on the supposition that business is
somehow an entirely separate or-
ganism and that government should
not interfere.- This was institutional-
ized in the eighteenth century as
'laissez faire,' a reaction from ex-
treme mercantilism but never ex-
isting anywhere in a pure form."
Does Not Interfere
"The theory that when government
taxes, levies tariffs, issues injunctions,
interprets contracts, controls its cur-
rency it 'interferes' with government,
is wrong," he said. "In a modern in-
dustrial community, everyone's live-
lihood, life and happiness is so de-
pendent upon business that if govern-
ment did not concern itself with busi-
ness, it would find little indeed to
concern itself with. In such a com-
munity, government either governs
business or business governs govern-
Mr. Dennison said that "there is
no loophole by which we can escape
the conclusion that the business
structure must be regarded as an or-
gan of total society which govern-
ment must manage."
He contended that the only way in
which business can hope finally to
escape government interference is not
by "protesting and expostulating but
by so carrying on its own affairs that
it aids and supplements government
in the attainment of its ultimate
Dennison scored those leaders of
the business world "who run things

Aside from demonstrating a decisive
superiority over Michigan State Nor-

Hurons, 13 to 1, Michigan's baseball
team showed that it is in mid-season
form for today's Big Ten engagement
with Wisconsin to be held at 2:30

The Wolverines scored more than a
dozen runs with the aid of seven Nor-
mal errors, committed but two errors
themselves, and drove out eleven hits,
one of them a homer by Kim Williams
in the seventh, while Coach Ocker-

Concluding Sessions Of
Schoolmasters' Meeting
To Be HeldToday
Choose Edith Hoyle
As Club President
Series Of Resolutions Is
Adopted By Michigan
Members of the Michigan School-
masters' Club yesterday elected to
their presidency for the coming year
Edith L. Hoyle, teacher of social sci-
ences at the University, High School,
vice-president of the Club during the
past year, and the first woman pres-
ident of the organization since 1924.
Final sessions of the Club will be
held today, consisting of the confer-
ence for teachers, held at University
High School, and a luncheon to be
addressed by Prof. James K. Pollock
of the political science department.
Superintendent of Schools L. C.
Moore of South Haven was elected
'vice-president of the Club for 1935
at the business meeting yesterday
morning, and Prof. Frank Ellsworth
of Western State Teachers College,
was elected for a three-year term on
the executive committee.,
Other important business under-
taken by the schoolmasters yesterday
was the adoption of a series of resolu-
tions proposed by the committee, on
resolutions. Foremost of these, pro-1
posed by Donald O'Hara of East Lan-
sing, chairman of the committee,,
called for "a statement of faith in a
democratic form of government and
the constitution as a defense of our
institutions, and an attack on selfish
interests laying a smoke-screen for
their own activities by charging that1
the schools are red." The resolution1
in substance was approved by unani-
mous vote.
Other resolutions were adopted
honoring Louis Parker Jocelyn, per-1
manent secretary-treasurer of the
Club retiring after 33 years of service,
together with his wife, who has as-
sisted him, in his duties.
"Meddlers in public education" were
further scored by Dr. John Sundwall,
director of the division of hygiene and
public health, who addressed the.
luncheon of the administrative teach-E
ers' conference on the topic: "A Physi-
cian Looks at Teacher Training.",
"We must be mindful of the fact1
that meddling and interference with
the public schools has been an un-
varying accompaniment of their de-,
velopment and growth, and more br
less endemic to our democracy," he
"What our democracy needs," he
continued, "is a genuine valiant teach-
ing profession made up of men and
women of whom the outstanding char-
acteristics will be equanimity and in-,
trepidity, men and women who are
capable and powerful enough to wield
the whip hand when meddling sticks,

Urges Longer Training
He urged as the fundamental step
toward this type of teacher the eleva-
tion of teacher training to a profes-
sional school with a length and cur-
riculum similar to medicine, with a
two-year general course, four years
in a school of education, and a year's
Further, Dr. Sundwall commented,
a new burden will be added to the

public schools when the true condi-
tion of democracy is realized. Since
the final judges under a democracy
are the people, those same people must
be better educated to assume their
responsibilities as a government.

At Law Club Exercises
Traces Formation
Of Codes In Detail
New York Attorney Gives
Two Of Series At 10th
Annual Founders Day
A double-barreiled attack against
the NRA was unloosened yesterday by
Gilbert H. Montague, prominent New
York attorney, in the first two of
his series of three lectures being pre-
sented here this week-end in connec-
tion with the 10th Annual Founder's
Day Exercises at the Law Club. He
spoke first at 4 p.m. in Hutchins
I Hall, the second lecture being given
at 7 p.m. in the Lawyers Club.
Mr. Montague will deliver the third
of the series, "The Future of the
NRA," at 11 a.m. today in Room 100,
Hutchins Hall.
Describing the' "NRA in Opera-
tion," Mr. Montague traced in detail
the formation of one of the 700 codes
of fair competition established under
the act, showing that the findings of
conditions within the industry were in
many cases not used in drafting the
Codes Lack Coordination
He showed further that because of
this fact and because of the lack of
coordination among the codes as well
as because of the delegation of the
executive law-making power to offi-
cials ranging in importance from the
president down to the lowest district
administrator, it is possible for as
many as 30 codes to become applicable
to one concern and for some of these
to be in conflict with each other.
"How to keep track of these codes,
supplementary codes, code amend-
ments, executive orders, administra-
tive orders, office orders, interpretl-
tions, rules and regulations, so that
before it is too late one may either
comply with them or obtain from the
NRA an exemption from or modifica-
tion of them, is fast becoming a major
problem of American business men
and their legal advisors," he said.
"I venture to say," he declared,
"that I could find some violation in
every business concern, probably
under a code provision or subsequent
ruling of which its owners had never
Blames Under Officials
Mr. Montague pointed out that hun-
dreds of business men, having com-
plied with evey provision which
seemed to affect their businesses, are
suddenly coming to the realization
that they are liable to heavy pen-
alties and fines because of some ob-
scure provision in a code which seemed
to have no connection with their in-
dustries. This condition he blamed
to a large extent on the original poor
preparation and subsequent delegation
of law-making powers to a bureau-
cracy of under-officials.
In his speech at the banquet, en-
titled "Executive Law-Making Under
the Constitution," Mr. Montague de-
clared that recent interpretations of
the Supreme Court had shown a
strong tendency to define the .limits
to which executive law-making could
In tracing the history of this ques-
tion, he recalled the forty-year fight
of the Supreme Court "to safeguard
executive law-making against all the
perils of coercive, hole-in-the-corner

and particularistic executive made
laws" and pointed to the fact that

Teaching Of 'Isms'
Urged For College
Courses By Wirt
GARY, Ind., April 26. -(/P) - Col-
lege courses in Communism, Fascism,
Naziism and Socialism as well as the
present economic order were advo-
cated tonight by Dr. William A. Wirt,
who stirred up a tempest in 1934 with
charges that certain "brain trusters"
were plotting a revolution.
Dr. Wirt believes that any student
examining intelligently the various
economic systems would end by choos-
ing the existing order.
He recommended that classes be
taught by "out-and-out" proponents
of the divers "isms."c
"They would put up their strong-
est arguments," he added, "and frank-
ly present all their data. .
"If advocates of the present eco-
nomic order cannot put up a double-
entry balance sheet that can compare
with the others, then there is some-
thing radically wrong with them or
the present order.1
"Let the student act as the judge,"
he urged.1

Bill Passes 79 to 6,
Is Sent To Senate
Legislative Grant Boosted
$500,000 As Fitzgerald
Agrees To Conpromnise
LANSING, April 26. - (A) - The
House passed a bill today providing
an annual appropriation of $3,700,000
for the University of Michigan.
Of that amount $3,200,000 would
come from the general fund and $500,-
000 from sales tax revenues. The bill
was reported by the House ways and
means committee recommending a
total appropriation of $3,200,000. It
was amended upward on motion of
Representative James G. Frey, (Rep,
Battle Creek). The vote on the bill
was 79 to 6. The measure goes to
the Senate.
The $3,700,000 amount is $100,000
less than was proposed in the bill as
originally introduced.
Pass M.S.C. Bill Also
The House also passed and sent to
the Senate a bill giving Michigan
State College $1,300,000 a year for
general operation and $178,609 for
extension work.
The State College total was boosted
from $1,300,000 to $1,478,000 with
$200,000 of additional aid still in pros-
pect from the sales tax.
In the case of the University, it is
understood that Gov. Fitzgerald has
agreed with the Regents that he will
approve the compromise amount.- It
:s, however, more than $300,000 less
han the Senatte has scheduled in the
bill approved and sent to the House.
Conferences may be necessary to iron
out the discrepancy.
The State College grant, however,
s $126,000 in excess of the amount
