Roosevelt Asks
More Aid For
Charity Drive
Ptesident Urges Support
For Welfare Campaign
In Radio Address
WASHINGTON, Oct. 25. - (A) -
With a declaration that private in-
dustry is now "taking up the slack"
of unemployment but that the nation
nevertheless should increase its do-
natihs to charity, President Roose-
velt asked support for a private wel-
fare drive that is in progress through-
out the country today.
'n an optimistic address delivered
by radio last night on the opening
program of the 1935 mobilization for
human needs, the President stressed
reports of increased employment.
He referred to a September em-
pipyment gain of 350,000 workers in
pri ate industries which report to the
department of labor. This, he said,
brought those industries to the level
of November, 1930, and their payrolls
back to the level of May, 1931. He
added that even the "durable goods"
ind'ustries, long "backward," are now
"putting their best foot forward."
Emerging From Depression
"Recenly" he giod, "I expressed
th hope that private industry would
strain cxo,;x nerv., to increase their
payrolls, inc, casc the number of those
whom they eusplo;ed ,and thus take
fr - t ne eral Government and
th fr l16 1 gover-Aments a great share
ofhe brdn of relief.
"The igI es which I have cited
led zme reaer confidence that
private industry is living up to my
hdpe. We s cm to be taking up the
The nation, he said, is "rapidly
e erging from the "years of depres-
Helimnted these statements with
hi ' ppal for generous giving in con-
nection with the mobilization move-
mnht, sponsor of Community Chest
drives in 350 cities.
Twofold Answer
"Why, you may ask, if the distress
and the unemployment are less,
should the giving' be greater," he
said. "The answer is twofold: First
ofW ll, it is, I know, your hope and
mine that the necessities of govern-
ment relief furnished by funds re-
received by taxation should decrease
as rapidly as human needs will allow.
"But the other reason is of deep-
er significance, greater importance.
There are, as you and I know, hun-
dreds of thousands of men, women
and children who require the kind of
assistance that private charity and
not government should give.
"There still remains, and will long
renlin ,a sadly distressed segment of
our, population, destitue and unpro-
vided for, in the communities of the
United States."
Hespoke of the poor who need
medical care, undernourished chil-
dren, of the needs of private hospitals
and homes for the aged, blind and
inciftable. These, and other welfare
agenciesthe said, "must and should
expand their splendid work."
Swope Speaks In Detroit \
"But we do want to emphasize that
word 'work'," he said. "Neither pri-
vate charity nor government relief
wants to continue to help people who
can work but who won't work. There
is only one legitimate excuse for
unwillingness to work, and that is bad
health or advanced age."
Gerard Swope, chairman of the
mobilzation, spoke from Detroit on
the same program, saying the "good
neighbor" policy was the motto for
the drive.

Witi the government turning the
task of direct relief over to states and
coimunities, Swope said, "the ser-
vice needed from private agencies
will inevitably be increased during
this period of transition."

Prof. Duffendack Tells Of New
Trends In European Physics

Two pronounced trends in theI
European study of physics were de-
scribed by Prof. Ora S. Duffendack
of the physics department in an in-
terview yesterday.
Professor Duffendack, who recently
r'eturned from an eight months tour
during which he visited laboratories
in Switzerland, France, Holland, Ger-
many, Sweden, Italy and England,
found that both the location and sub-
ject of the most intensive physical
study had been considerably altered.
in the past few years.
"It is my impression," he said,
"that there has been a marked slump
in the study of spectroscopic pheno-
mena, and on the other hand a very
marked increase in the attention giv-
en to nuclear physics. And although
diversification of effort was usually
apparent, nevertheless it is with the
make-up of the atom that the physi-
cists in Europe are largely con-
While in England Professor Duff-
endack studied apparatus for the dis-
integration or building up of atomic
nuclei at the Cavendish Laboratory
in Cambridge. Similar appartus,
known as the cyclotron, will be in-
stalled here under Professor Duffen-
dack's direction in the near future.
"The possiblities of such study," he
went on, "and of the successful use
of such a machine as the cyclotron,
are very great. Besides providingus
with a much better picture of the
composition of matter, it would fur-
Thurston Gets
Post In State
School System
Assistant Superintendent
Of Local High Schools
Given Year's Leave
Lee M. Thurston, assistant super-
intendent of Ann Arbor schools since
January, 1931, was given a leave of
absence for the remainder of the fis-
cal year Friday night to permit him
to accept the post of deputy state
superintendent of public instruction.
It was understood he will leave im-
The request that he be given a
leave was made Friday by Mr. Thur-
ston after he had conferred with Dr.
Eugene B. Elliott, who Thursday was
confirmed by the supreme court as
superintendent of public instruction.
The board granted the request spe-
cifying that it be for the balance of
the fiscal year, which terminates next
September. It did so with regret
inasmuch as Mr. Thurston's work has
been regarded highly.
To fill the vacancy the board named
Carroll C. Crawford, teacher of math-
ematics at the Mack junior hgh
school and director of adult education
in the schools. It was understood
that Mr. Crawford is to serve as act-
ing assistant superintendent, as trea-
surer of the board of education and
is to continue as director of adult
Mr. Thurston came here from
Perry, where he was superintendent
of schools. Previous to going to Perry
he taught at Boyne City and Owosso.

dent. His work here was chiefly with

nish radioactive substances of im-
mense value to physicians and physi-
cists alike."
The second change observed by
Professor Duffendack in European
physics consists of a shift from Ger-
many to France as the scene of the
most significant study and research
on the continent. "The fall of Ger-
many on the scale of physics," he re-
marked, "I attribute chiefly to the
demoralization of the laboratories
and workers after the Nazi expulsion
of the leading Jewish scientists, and
the rest of the governmental actions."
In France, on the contrary, Profes-
sor Duffendack found activty con-
stantly rising in quality. One evi-
dence of this was demonstrated by
the tri-centennial anniversary of the
Museum of Natural History in Paris,
which he attended as a delegate from
the Unive ssity. There the accom-
plishments of the French scientists
were exhibited in a manner and pro-
fuseness sufficient to leave no doubt
as to the level of their work.
"England," Professor Duffendack
concluded, "was apparently main-
taining its long record of productive
study, and it is from the work of such
as Dr. Ernest Rutherford there that
we may expect important advances
in the field of nuclear physics."

New Order Will Boost To

WASHINGTON, Oct. 25. - (P) -
Army purchasing agents disclosed to-
day that the War Department is
ready to place an order for 30 air-
planes, which will boost to nearly 500
the number under construction. The
new planes are to be training craft.

entire army plane-buying program

The army was said to be contem-
plating purchase of at least 17 ob-
servation planes and use of its re-
maining funds for an undetermined
number of bombers, attack and pur-
suit ships.
Congress appropriated $19,138,000
for arm planes during the fiscal yea
ending next June 30, but $3,000,000
of that was to pay for ships con-
tracted for in the past fiscal year.
To meet what army air authorities
consider their most serious shortage
$13,666,000 was set aside specifically
for combat planes.
Air corps officials said the army
now has 1,272 serviceable planes -
against 2,320 recommended by a
special board which made a study o:
the corps last year - and of thes
some 400 are combat craft stationed
in continental United States.
It was indicated that the order fo
the 30 new basic trainers probably
would go to the North American

2 Deaths Recorded
As Suicide, Murder
DETROIT, Oct. 25. - (P )- State
police prepared today to record a
murder and suicide the deaths of a
man and woman, found with bullet
holes in their bodies in a wrecked
car yesterday morning near the
southwest Wayne county line.
Corporal Frank Walker, of the
Ypsilanti state police post, said the
bullets taken from the bodies of Wil-
liam Pinkert and Mrs. L. L. Gordon,
both of Dyandotte, would be checked
here. The suicide-slaying decision
would close the case.
Walker said notes found indicated
Pinkert and Mrs. Gordon had been
carrying on a clandestine affair for
some time. Walker said evidence
showed that Pinkert had shot Mrs.
Gordon through the heart and then
turned the gun on himself as the car
was traveling at high speed. The ve-
hicle, owned by Mrs. Gordon's hus-
band, was badly wrecked.

Despite the fact that the Ann Arbor
Community Fund contributes money,
the local branch has found it neces-
sary to raise more funds from other
branches of the organization.
Transients usually come to town in
the early evening, and are given a
hot meal and a bed, said Adjt. Row-
land. The Salvation Army, he ex-
plained, has made arrangements with
a local restaurant whereby they pay
only 15 cents for a 40-cent meal which
is provided for the transient. To keep
a man overnight costs them 25 cents;
therefore each man who stops over
usually costs the Salvation Army at
least 40 cents.
