Sir Herbert Ames
Addresses Model
League Assembly

Says Present Time Is Most
Critical Since Versailles
Traces European
Affairs To Present
Martin Wagner, Rhodes
Scholar, Is Chosen As
Assembly President
Pointing to the League of Nations
as the hope of world peace today,
Sir Herbert Ames, distinguished Ca-
nadian diplomat and first treasurer of
the League addressed more than 200
members of the Model League of Na-
tions Assembly last night in the
"Although there has been no time
since the Treaty of Versailles so crit-
ical and so tense as the present," he
declared, "as long as the League exists
and is supported, there is a way out
of the difficulties that confront us
tonight. However black the situation
looks, 'we have the League, where
there is a chance to iron things out
over the conference table."
Both Hitler and other European
powers are "at the crossroads," Sir
Herbert said. "Hitler does not know
how far to go, and the powers do not
know hQw far to let him go. Some-
day, however, the day will come when
they must say, 'Stop.'"
Sir Herbert traced the European
situation from 1920 until the present,
explaining that there have been three
periods of Franco-German relations:
from 1920 to 1926, the period of Ger-
man ostracism, followed by recon-
ciliation; 1926 to 1932, the period of
cooperation between Germany and1
the other nations; and from 1933 on,
the period of Hitler domination with
Germany outside the League of Na-
hile 'drawing a picture of Euro-
pean history since the war, Sir Her-
bert struck an analogy between the
Austro-Hungary-Serbia crisis in 1914
and the Jugoslavia-Hungary crisis in
1934. The latteY, he stated, "if there
had been no League, would have had,
the same results as the situation
which precipitated the Great War."
Martin Wagner, Rhodes scholar,
as 'delegate from Luxembourg,'
was elected president of the As-
sembly in the opening session at 11-
a.m. yesterday when President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven, acting as presi-
dent of the League of Nations, pre-
sided, welcoming delegates from
more than 20 colleges to the eighth
annual session of the Model Assem-

Gargoyle Places High
In National Judgings
In a nation-wide contest conducted
recently by the Texas Ranger, humor
magazine of the University of Texas,
the Gargoyle was rated first among
college humor publications of the
schools of the northern United States

Two other national contests held
recently gave the Gargoyle high rat-
ings. The Punch Bowl of the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania placed the
Gargoyle second, with first honors
going to the Jack-O-Lantern of
Dartmouth College.
The Stanford Chapparal of Stan-
ford University also conducted a
contest and rated the Gargoyle third.
The Pelican of the University of Cal-

Tag Day To Be

S. C.A._May 17
1600 Boys Will Benefit By
Annual Drive For Fresh
Air Camp
The annual tag day for the benefit
of the U. of M. Fresh Air Camp will
be held May 17, Student Christian
Association officials announced last
William Q. Barndt, '37, chairman
of the committee in charge of the
event stated that the tag day was be-
ing sponsored "in order to raise more
funds for the Fresh Air Camp pro-
gram. The Association feels justified
in holding the tag day because of
the fact that the jamboree program
was not supported wholeheartedly by
the campus."
All fraternities that aided the jam-
boree in any way will be given tags
gratis and in advance prior to the
sale of tags on campus.
The Fresh Air Camp summer sea-
son will open immediately following
the close of school in June. Accord-
ing to the camp director, George G.
Alder, the program for the year of
1935 is one of the most ambitious
ever attempted by the camp, for it
will provide more than 1600 "boy
weeks." It is planned to have 100
boys from Ann Arbor remain at the
camp,.for the entire season. At two
week intervals another 100 boys will
attend the camp from Detroit, Ham-
tramck, and other communities in
the vicinity.
The camp has served more than
5,000 boys during the 13 years of its
existence and has provided underpriv-
ileged boys with the opportunity to
live a clean, wholesome, cosmopolitan
life, Barndt said.
At the present time on the camp
site a new camp building is being
built which will be used by the S.C.A.
and will be let to other campus groups
for retreats and week-end affairs.
The counsellors of the camp and
other administration officials are
chosen from University students and

A plea to the youth of today to
"have a tomorrow" was voiceddlast
night by the Rev. William P. Lemon
of thebFirst Presbyterian Church of
Ann Arbor, who addressed 200 high
school journalists at the annual ban-
quet of the Michigan Interscholastic
Press Association on "The Adventure
of Tomorrow."
Dr. Lemon divided the people of
the word into three categories in
his lecture: "Those who have no to-
morrow, those whose tomorrow is go-
ing to be a yesterday served up again,
and those who really have a tomor-
row." He deplored the condition of
the individual whose world is a prac-
tical world of the immediate present,
as well as those for whom the future
would be no more than the world of
their forefathers.

who outlined for them the offerings
and possibilities of a journalistic ca-

mony, however, he admitted, and
pointed to several examples of fa-
mous writers who had started or who
still worked in the field of journalism.
He completed his lecture by an-
swering questions submitted by the
high school journalists, most of which
dealt with opportunities for getting
positions in the field, and the oppor-
tunities for women in journalism.
Muyskens Speaks
The morning session was addressed
by Prof. John H. Muyskens of the de-
partment of speech, who spoke on
"The Mother Tongue." He traced the
growth of "the organism of truth"
as a series of four processes, first
superstition, then description, com-
parison of observations, and the pe-
riod of objective experimentation.
Meetings will conclude tomorrow
with a general session to be addressed
by Dr. William D. Henderson, direc-
tor of the University Extension Divi-
sion, who will speak on the "Power
of Personality." His lecture will be
followed by four discussion groups.
Begin Suit Against
Wilhernine Carr, '37
Prof. John L. Brumm. chairman
of the journalism department, has
started suit for $20,000 against Wil-
helmine F. Carr, '37, daughter of Prof.
L. J. Carr of the sociology depart-
ment, and the Y.W.C.A. for alleged
injury to his daughter, Jean Carol,
two years ago, it was announced yes-
Professor Brumm charges that Miss
Carr, while an instructor of archery
at Y.W.C.A. Camp Takona, in Jack-
son County, shot and pierced the right
eye of his daughter, Ann Arbor school
girl, causing her to lose its sight.
Circuit Judge George W. Sample,
before whom the suit was instituted,

announced yesterday that he will
"consider the case further" before
making a decision.

The supreme test of NRA's constitu-

justices of the Supreme Court, while,
through other channels, the admin-

with the building by Roosevelt forces

during the day:

the House the executive council
of the American Federation of Labor,
bearing an endorsement for a two-

for a modified lease of life until next

Mr. Roosevelt repeated the brief talk
he made yesterday to the business

pressed the feeling that in many cases

Fehsenf eldAs
Frank Fehsenfeld, of Indianapolis,
National Collegiate champion in the
high and low board diving events
will lead Michigan's swimming team
in defense of National and Big Ten
titles next year. He was elected at

the annual squad banquet held last
night in the Union.
After taking second place in the
Conference meet of this year, Fehsen-
feld came through in the National
meet to score victories in both diving
events over Bill Busby of Iowa, who
had beaten him in the Big Ten com-
petition. The new Wolverine leader
took second places in the Indiana and
Michigan State dual meets this year,
behind teammates Ben Grady and
Der Johnston, and won first place at
Ohio State over Ned Diefendorf.
In the National A.A.U. indoor
championships held early last month
in New York Fehsenfeld took fourth
place in the low board event and fifth
in the high board competition.
Last year Fehsenfeld failed to win
a Varsity letter after being forced to
the sidelines by the superior perform-
ances of Dick Degener and Johnson.
He did not do any diving until the

placed twelfth and later was given
eighth position on the All-America

Union Pays $35,000 To Student
Employees For Current Year

Discussion Will Continue
With Two Sessions At
3 P.M. And 7 P.M.
A vigorous defense of free speech
and press and a tacit condemnation
of proposed "anti-red" legislation was
made by members of the faculty and
student body as the 1935 Spring Par-
ley opened its second session in the
Union last night.
The crowd of more than 400 which
packed the North Lounge to capacity
heartily applauded the faculty speak-
ers who were repeatedly called back
after finishing a statement to clarify
and discuss more thoroughly ques-
tions raised.
Prof. I. L. Sharfman, chairman of
the economics department, in answer
to a question raised by Wilbert Hind-
man, Grad., in respect to whether or
not the recent statements of Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven and Re-
gent James O. Murfin limited aca-
demic freedom, declared that he did
not believe that. the University had
any desire to check the teaching of.
any courses in the University.
"In times of hysteria it is danger-
ous to make a general statement.'
Among our courses is one on "Pro-
grams of Social-Economic Ref orm
in which we teach what Socialism,
Communism, Syndacalism, and other
forms are. We have no apologies to
make in teaching a course like this,"
Professor Sharfman said.
Right To Think
"The faculty believe deeply in the
right to think, to interchange
thoughts with others. I'm not aware
that anything has been done to
change that spirit."
Regent Murfin's statement was as
follows: "There is no place on the
campus of the University of Michigan
for professors teaching Communistic
doctrines. I have been assured that
there is no such teaching, but if I
have proof that Communism is being
taught or encouraged I will take steps
to remove such professors from the
President Ruthven's statement, is-
sued April 17, which was also referred
to, declared that "University work has
been interfered with and the reputa-
tion of the institution has been called
into question recently by perversive
activities of a few professional agita-
tors, by certain other misguided per-
sons not connected with the Univer-
sity, some of whom are residents and
citizens of the state, and some of
whom are not, and, unfortunately, by
a small group of immature students.
Continuance of these activities will
not be tolerated.
"As has been the practice in the
past, no meetings will be permitted
on the campus or in University build-
ings without permission obtained
from University authorities...... .
The University has no desire to curtail
freedom of speech, but as state-sup-
ported institution devoted to educa-
tion, it proposes to continue to fulfill
to the utmost its obligations to the
state and the cause of general educa-
Academic Freedom
Continuing the answer to the ques-
tion on academic freedom, Professor
Sharfman said, "I see no reason why,
even, when we are supported by the
State we cannot be free to think and
speak, even on unpopular subjects."
This statement was made by Pro-
fessor Sharfman after a student had
asked the question: "Is there any or-
ganization on the campus indulging
in perversive activities?" On this
same query, Professor Sharfman
brought up the subject of the local
National Student League, to which
the question referred.
"After all," he said, "the National
Student League is a recognized or-
ganization on the campus. I was on

the Committee of Student Affairs
when it was recognized, and I strong-
ly favored recognition." He main-
tained that he still had the same opin-

Lack Of Politicians Dooms
Dunckel-Baldwin opponents

LANSING, May 3.-It was the
consensus in the capitol today that
tactics of the Dunckel-Baldwin bill
opponents last night at the open
hearing in the House made its pas-
sage virtually certain.
Chief among the tactical errors
charged by advocates of the bill,
which makes it a felony to advocate
violent overthrow of the government,
was the speech by William Weinstone,
state communist organizer in Mich-
igan. When Weinstone, who with his
dark complexion and long black hair
resembled a typical story book rad-
ical, spoke in opposition to the mea-
sure, Sen. James A. Baldwin, (Rep.,
A-Alhnn) rnc sn*r of the bhill. de-

the passage of the proposed act, were
also scored by its opponents who be-
lieved tactics of the opposition to be
misguided. In the course of his
speech, Hindman said that "Some-
day, we, the youth of Michigan, will
have to sit here in the Legislature to
rectify the mistakes you make."
Most effective speeches against the
controversial bill were given by the
R~ev. H. H. Bollens, of Detroit, rep-
resenting the Civil Liberties. Union,
which handled the case of the opposi-
tion; and the Rev. Dr. Field of De-
troit, representing Bishop Edgar
Blake of the Methodist Church.
Although speakers on both sides
were heckled by opposing sides in the
galleries and on the edge of the floor,

Nearly $35,000 in wages - both in
cash and in board -will have been
paid out for the current year to men
students employed in the various de-
partments of the Union by the close of
the Summer Session, it was estimated
yesterday by Stanley G. Waltz, gen-
eral manager of the Union.
This sum represents a sharp de-
crease of 10 per cent over wages paid
out to students working at the Union
last year, in spite of the fact that the
wage scale has remained exactly the
same. Mr. Waltz attributed this rise
to a general improvement in business
in all of the departments of the

first six and one-half months was
nearly $168, or an average of $1.34
per day to each student employe.
