Banquet Given
For Initiates Of
Phi Beta Kappa
Prof. Robert Bradshaw Of
University Of Illinois Is
Speaker, Honor Guest
The Michigan chapter of Phi Beta
Kappa, national honorary scholastic
organization, honored its new in-
itiates at the traditional initiation
banquet of the society held last night
at the Michigan League. Approxi-
mately 125 people, including the in-
itiates, active members and their
guests, attended this year's banquet.
Prof: John W. Bradshaw, president
of the chapter, opened the program
with introductory remarks which were
answered by Helen Elizabeth Aigler,
'35, on behalf of the women initiates,
and Edmund Keil Heitmann, '35, for
the men.
The guest of honor and chief
speaker on the program was Prof.
Robert D. Carmichael, dean of the
Graduate School of the University of
Illinois who addressed the group on
"Number and Clear Thinking: an
Aspect of Human Culture." Prof.
Carmichael is himself a member of
Phi Beta Kappa, the editor of the
publication of the American Mathe-
matical Society and author of nu-
merous well-known works on mathe-
He based his speech upon the theme
that number as the principle of order

is one of. the basic concepts of civ-
ilization and traced its development
through the history of ancient Baby-
lon, Egypt and Greece to the present
Professor Carmichael stressed the
theory of number as essential to the
perception of clear and precise rela-
tionships in thinking and to the de-
velopment of theories of both the
infinite and material in nature. This
supposition is basic in the Pythago-
rean and Aristotelian philosophies, as
well as in that of Kepler who stated
that, "God created the world accord-
ing to number and in number is
found the secret of the Creator's

Roaring Flames In

Dilapidated Chair
Injured innocence, fear. pomposity,
disgust, curiosity, levity - all were
in evidence late yesterday afternoon
when University remen were called
out to combat a laze in University
Hall which threatened to consume a
whole chair.
The fire, wh was discovered
shortly before 6 p.m., had started
in some oil-soaked rags in a closet
on the first flodr of the building

to his superior, "them rags was hung

Supreme Court
Participates -In
Fight For NRA
Optional Regulatory Code
Plan Receives Chamber
Of Commerce Vote
WASHINGTON, May 2 -(P)- An.
Administration fight for the life of
NRA; centered before sharply ques-
tioning members of the Supreme
Court and in a Senate committee
room, today caught the attention of
the capital.
From the bench of the high court,
both liberal and conservative mem-
bers shot searching inquiries at
Stanley Reed the solicitor general, '
who opened the government's argu-
ments on the constitutionality of
NRA. Plainly the court showed its
interest in the intrastate phases of
the law, and in the delegation of
code making authority by Congress.
Favor Voluntary Codes
Almost simultaneously, the Cham-
ber of Commerce of the United States
declared by resolution it wanted even
less restriction, calling for purely
"voluntary" codes. But from another
business quarter, Secretary Roper's
business advisory council, the Presi-
dent was informed by formal reso-
lution that it desired NRA extended
for two years in line with adminstra-
tion requests.
Elsewhere in the capital principal
attention was centered on the cau-
tiously moving $4,000,000,000 works
program; the allotment of $140,000,-
000 for May relief needs; the opening
of a tri-cornered bonus battle in the
Senate; and the critical attitude
adopted toward the Administration
by the Chamber of Commerce.
Hear Bonus Proposals
The Chamber, in a series of reso-
lutions adopted amid some uproar,
criticized almost every phase of the
Roosevelt program. In almost un-
precedented fashion, business men at-
tending the convention refused to
adopt the reports of the resolutions
committee wholesale, but insisted on
making some of the criticisms more
The Senate during the day heard
proponents of the inflationary Pat-

man bonus bill and the compromise
Harrison measure argue heatedly for
their proposals in the Senate cloak-
rooms, however. Advocates of the
Vinson clan, which would let Con-
gress decide later how the money
would be paid, were reported to be
gaining strength.

Dunckel-Baldwin Bill Is
Vigorously Opposed By
Patrick H. O'Brien
(Special to The Daily)
LANSING, May 2.--The open
hearing on the Dunckel-Baldwin bill
before the House of Representatives
tonight was transformed into a politi-
cal debate, as former Governor Wil-
bur Brucker and Frank X. Martel,
Detroit labor leader, attacked each
other in impassioned speeches.
The ex-Governor, speaking for the
proponents of the bill, charged that
Martel was nothing but a pseudo.
labor leader, while Martel answered
that at least he was a labor leader
at present, while Brucker was an ex-
Both men then completely left the
subject of the bill under discussion,
and scored each other with random
shots from their political pasts.
Fifteen hundred spectators jammed
the crowded galleries and floor, cheer-1
ing and booing freely as the propon-
ents, mostly Legionnaires and repre-
sentatives of fraternal organizations,
and opponents of the bill debated be-
fore the assembled legislators.
Terming Brucker "Wobbling Wil-
bur," Martel made the feud even more
personal by stating that "the former1
governor will never, I predict, be re,~
turned to a major Michigan office."
He declared that "no one could get a
labor office under Brucker without the1
approval of the Michigan Manufac-
turers' Association."
Brucker then came back for a third
time to praise the labor department'
in his administration, to attempt to
answer the charges of Martel, and to
assert that Martel had not answered
questions he proposed regarding thei
Dunckel-Baldwin bill.
LANSING, May 2. - (') - Advo-1
cates and opponents of the Dunckel-
Baldwin anti-communism bill
jammed the House. floor tonight to at-
tack and defend the measure which
is now pending in the Legislature.
The Rev. Joseph Luther, dean of
men of the University of Detroit, de-
manded passage of the bill, declaring:
"The issue is clear. It is God, re-
ligion, morality, Americanism against'
Soviet Russia. Revolt is not the path
to social justice."'
Carl Smith of Bay City, member
of the national law and order com-
mittee of the American Legion, urged
the passage, and he was joined by
Joseph Kruze, vice-president of the
Society of World Veterans of Russia,
Mrs. Agnes Dunn of Bad Axe, chair-
man of the Americanism committee
of the American Legion Auxiliary,
N. L. Welch, Hillsdale College student,
Desiderius Nagy, pastor of the Holy
Cross Church of Detroit, and R.
Wayne Newton, of the Michigan Farm
F o r m e r - G o v e r n o r Wilbur M.
Brucker demanded that the bill be
written into the statute "as a chal-
lenge to those who advocate over-
throw of government by force." He
told the legislators:
"You cannot be patriotically in-
clined unless you believe this measure
should be enacted."

Frank X. Martel, president of the
Detroit and Wayne County Federa-
tion of Labor, charged the bill was
not an American Legion measure, but
one "written by the United States
Chamber of Commerce which is hid-
ing behind Legion backs."

Faculty Group Of
Sixteen On Panel
Litchfield Will Preside At'
Two Sessions Of Annual
The 1935 Spring Parley will begin
a three-day discussion on "Values
Involved in Social Conflict at the Uni-
versity of Michigan" at 4 p.m. today
in the Union with members of the
student body and a panel of 16 facul
ty men in attendance.
President Alexander G. Ruthven,
who will open the first session of
the Parley today, praised the aims of
the gathering in the following state-
ment yesterday:
"The Spring Parley is designed to
encourage the students to discuss
fundamental problems of life. Ad-
mittedly the objectives of the Parley
are not easily attained becauseof
the human tendency to adopt un-
tested assumptions, to argue upon in-
sufficient evidence, to propagandize
rather than educate and to be con-
cerned with superficialities rather
than with fundamentals.
"The development of a philosophy
should be the result of dispassioned
thinking, honest inquiry and unpreju-
diced discussion. It follows, there-
fore, that the Parley can be success-
ful only as the students taking part
in the discussions exhibit and pro-
mote intellectual honesty, a trait
which is singularly lacking in miany
parts of our present civilization."
The session will continue with a
meeting at 7 p.m. tonight, an after-
nopn and evening meeting tomorrow,
and the concluding forum Sunday
Litchfield To Preside
The 16 members of the faculty pan-
el wilr'be seated together facing the
general attendance at the meeting to-
day and all other general meetings,
and will be the "targets" for written
or verbal questions raised by inquir-
ing students. One member of the
panel will deliver a short opening ad-
dress this afternoon on the sub-topics;
to provide a basis for later queries
and discussion.
The faculty outline of the problems
presented in each of these subjects
will be followed by discussion from
the floor. Edward Litchfield, '36,
chairman of the Parley, will preside
over the meetings today and the final
meeting Sunday morning.
The Parley will be divided into five
sections at the Saturday meetings
with student chairmen presiding over
a more intensive discussion of each
of the five sub-topics. Wilbert Hind-
man, Grad., Martin Wagner, Grad.

Sea And Plane Sickness BowI
To The Nose Bag Of Science

PHILADELPHIA, May 2. - (A').- If
you become car-sick, buy a bag of
peanuts, throw the nuts away, and
hold the bag over your nose while
you breathe. It's a cure, announced
today at the American College of
Physicians' meetings.
Try it on sea sickness and plane
sickness. Any kind of paper bag
will do.
The treatment was found during a
study of "hyper-ventilation," de-
scribed by Dr. William J. Kerr, of San
uvn,,,,nH1io n hws itself in

product of the human breath, holding
a paper bag over the nose effectively
raises the carbon dioxide, and acidity.
Dr. Kerr said that holding the breath
for 15 seconds should have about the
same effect as the paper bag.
Coronary thrombosis, the heart di-
sease so fatal to high pressure brain'
workers, lost a little of its fearful-
ness in announcement by Dr. Paul D.

found heart troubles which have been
mistaken for the thrombosis. They
have been diagnosed as acute pul-
