Roper Asserts
Is Terminated
Declares Government Will
Cooperate; 'Basic Plan
Of Reform Ended'
NEW YORK, Nov. 14. - (P) - Sec-
retary of Commerce Roper has as-
sured business that "the breathing
spell which we are now enjoying is to
be the end of government regimenta-
He offered cooperation instead of
further regulation to bu'siness last
night, when he told the Associated
Grocery Manufacturers of America
to cast aside any uncertainty over
future governmental measures.
Charles Francis, vice president of
General Foods corporation and toast-
master at the convention dinner, re-
plied that he felt "business is going
to get a break."
Approved By White House
Roper's speech was reported on
high authority to have had Whie
House scrutiny and approval. In it
he defended business as the "scape-
goat" of the depression and upheld
the profit system.
Discussing what he termed "various
inaccurate implications and deduc-
tions" resulting from the President's
announcement of a "breathing spell,"
commerce secretary recalled that Mr.
Roosevelt had borrowed this phrase
from Roy W. Howard in answering a
letter from the newspaper publisher.
"This declaration of the President
is clear-cut and concrete," said Roper.
"It means specifically that the basic
.program of reform has been com-
pleted. It means that business no
longer needs to feel any uncertainty
as to what may come in the future
with respect to governmental mea-
Modification May Be Needed
"Experience may make necessary
some modification and adjustment of
existing laws, but such changes, if
made, will function to improve those
relationships which are so essential
to national progress . .
"The objective of democracy is to
bring obout a greater distribution of
benefits through evolution, not con-
fiscation through any revolutionary
Roper outlined the commerce de-
partment's program to aid business
and called on business to cooperate
with the department "to see that
imaginary opposition of interests is
eliminated and that American bus-
iness, in accordance with the Presi-
dent's clear-cut statement, is able to
move forward aggressively."
Conferences Planned
The program includes conferences
with representatives of all major in-
dustries, "with special attention to
the needs and problems of smaller
business units"; studies of methods to
reduce distribution wastes; trips by
business men to promote interna-
tional trade, and better statistics.
Referring to "big business," Roper
saidthat."the misdeeds of a few have
brought an indictment against the
"I am convinced," he said, "that
if we are to be motivated primarily
by the assumption that bigness must
be penalized and restricted merely
because of its size, broad and pene-
trating recovery will be impossible."
Professors Talk On
Economic Theory
Prof. Hax Handnian and Mr. Rob-
ert Horner of the economics depart-
ment spoke before fifty members of
the Ann Arbor Citizens Council Wed-

nesday night at the City Hall.
Professor Handman's subject was
"The Dilemma of Capitalism," under
which he described informally the
possible reasons for the failure of
classic economic theory to work out
since 1929, asserting that government
interference with the economic struc-
ture has become necessary if capital-
ism is to be saved from itself.
Mr. Horner advocated a return to
laissez-faire, with sufficient regula-
tion to ensure genuinely free compe-
tition rather than quasi-monopoly.

Plot Of Land Bought
For New School Site
"Merely looking ahead to the fu-
ture," the Board of Education Wed-
nesday night approved the purchase
of 1712 acres at a cost of $10,000 as
a site for a school which will even-
tually replace Donovan School.
"There is no immediate prospect
of building a school," Otto W. Hais-
ley, superintendent of schools, de-
clared. "It may be 20 years from
The site lies at the end of Pear
St. and Peach St. between Traver St.
ind Pontiac Rd.
Mr. Haisley pointed out that the
disadvantageous location of Donovan
School would eventually lead to its
abandonment. When the new school
is built, the Donovan site will be con-
verted into a park, he said.

This is how the huge Travel and Transport building, one of the first structures constructed for Chi-
cago's A Century of Progress Exposition - and the last to be razed -looked as workmen reduced it to a mere
skeleton of its former grandeur. The building was a sensation at the time of its construction in that it had a
floating" roof subject to the vagaries of the atmosphere.

University Broadcasts Treats
Paintings Of American Artist

Marie Abbot And Adelaide
Adams Discuss Works Of
Reid Over WJR
Two paintings by the American
artist, Robert Reid, "The Boston Tea
Party" and 'Paul Revere's Ride' were
discussed by Miss Adelaide Adams of
the fine arts department and Miss
Marie Abbot, graduate student in fine
arts, yesterday over WJR.
Miss Adams declared that the Bos-
ton Tea Party and the ride of Paul
Revere are probably the most pic-
turesque events which preceded the
American Revolution, offering fitting
subjects to be immortalized both in
stirring verse and colorful paintings.
Before going into a discussion of
Reid's paintings, the speaker first
familiarized her audience with the
artist, explaining: "Like all young ar-
Abot Is Named
To Position On
New Committee
To Aid In Planning Mutual
Assistance Between Radio
And Educators
Prof. Waldo Abbot, Director of the
University Broadcasting Service, has
recently been appointed by the Fed-
eral Communications Commission to
a national committee which will con-
sider plans for mutual cooperation
between broadcasters and educators,
it was announced yesterday. The
committee has been set up with a
view to combine the educational ex-
perience of the educators with the
program technique of the broadcast-
ers so as to serve the public in-
terest better.
The committee, which is headed by
Dr. John W. Studebaker, United
States commissioner of education,
will also consider such specific com-
plaints as might be made by non-
profit groups against the actions of
commercial broadcasters in order
that remedial measures may be tak-
en if necessary.
In its report to Congress, the Fed-
eral Communications Commission
stated that it feels that broadcasting
has a much more important part in
the educational program of the coun-
try than has yet been found for it,
and hopes to develop through this
committee a satisfactory technic for
presenting educational programs in
an attractive manner to the radio

tists of his day, he felt the need of
European training, so he went to
Paris where he studied at the Acad-
emie Julien and also in the studio of
Dannaq. A new style of painting,
called Impressionism, was attracting
much attention in France during the
late years of the 19th century, and
many of the young Americans study-
ing in Paris became interested in the
Explains Impressionists
Miss Abbot interrupted at this;
moment to explain that an Impres-
sionist is an artist who is not interest-
ed in the story or sentiment of his
theme. He does not care about they
actual objects he represents but is
interested in their color and the play
of light and shadow over them. He
tries to catch momentary effects or
"It was under such influences that
Robert Reid received his training,j
and it was this new style that he and
his fellow artists brought back to
America in the 1880s," Miss Adams
In discussing the two panels by
Reid in the Boston State House, the
speaker mentioned one historical er-
ror. Paul Revere was 40 years old
when he made his famous ride, but
the painter has represented him as a
younger man. Otherwise Miss Ad-
ams believes that the artist has
caught both the look and spirit of
the event. His fidelity to fact in both
panels has perhaps led him somewhat
astray for these pictures come too
close to illustration to be completely
successful as mural paintings.
Use Of Movement Dangerous
She explained further: "In the
work of a skillful, well trained artist
like Robert Reid, we may take such
elements as carefully balanced com-
position and accurate drawing for
granted. However, the extensive use
of movement or illusion of depth, even
though beautifully represented, is
dangerous in mural decorations.
"A mural painting must be a pat-
tern of lines, forms and colors, which
decorates the wall it covers and
harmonizes with the surrounding ar-
chitectural elements. The essential
quality of a wall is flatness, and a
mural painting which denies this
quality 'knocks a hole in the wall' as 1
artists say. That would be my crit-
icism of these panels."
In "Paul Revere's Ride," Miss Ad-
ams feels that the horse and rider
seem to dash out of the picture and
behind the figures one sees the village
street, houses, a church, and distant
hills, all in proper realistic perspec-
tive. The picture is not static enough,
nor flat enough to be a truly good

The registration, according to Miss
Irene Steffey, general chairman, is
even better than anticipated. She be-
lieves it indicates that the program
of addresses by prominent physicians

new methods for treatment by new
apparatus, is fulfilling a real need.
