Bromage Points Out How State
Government System Can Survive
University Broadcast Topic
Is 'Michigan Engineering
Prof. Lewis M. Gram of the civil
engineering department. speaking in
the "Michigan, My Michigan Series,"
which are broadcast every Tuesday
from the University broadcasting
studio, discussed the "Engineering
Achievements of Michigan," pointing
out Michigan's highways, and the De-
troit water supply system as out-
He also refered to the St. Mary's
Canal, The Michigan Central Tun-
nel, the Ambassador Bridge and the
Detroit-Windsor Bridge as illustra-
tions for his talk.
Speaking of the St. Mary's Falls
Canal, Professor Gram said "this
canal has been of greater benefit di-
rectly and indirectly to the people in
our own state and in the world at
large than any other single engineer-
ing project." All the modern devices,
he explained, which have been pro-
moted by the mineral resources of
Michigan and neighboring states, are
brought to market at low cost through
The canal, which connects Lakes
Superior and Huron, is made upof
two canals and many locks. The
history of its building, as described
by Professor Gram, began in 1837.
From that time on, it was built
"cautiously in piecemeal fashion,"
and is a result of 65 years of inter-
mittent construction. At first the
contractors and proponents had dif-
ficulties with the federal soldiers, and
also with Congress, but after action
was deferred for 13 years, public land
was appropriated for it.
'Bridge's Tonnage High
"As compared with other notable
canals in the world," Professor Gram
pointed out, "the tonnage passing
through the American and Canadian
canals in normal pre-depression years
was greater than that of the Kiel,
Panama and Suez canals combined."
The double-track tunnel of the
Michigan Central Railroad was be-
gun in 1906, after 50 years of agita-
tion and suggestions. At first it was
intended that a bridge span the De-
troit River, butaopposition of shipping
.interest, and the discovery of the use
of electric cars to avoid the ventila-
tion problem, brought about the tun-
nel's construction, Professor Gram
The Ambassador Bridge and the
Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, Professor
Gram asserted, were a result of the
need for avoiding the delays and haz-
ards of transportation over the De-
troit River. 'The bridge is of the so-
called suspension type, and it is sec-
ond only to the George Washington
bridge in length.
Three Issues Are Named'
By Michigan Professor;
In Providence Speech
PROVIDENCE, R. I., Nov' 26.-
Members of the National Municipal'
League assembled here for the first
day of their forty-first annual confer-
ence on government heard Prof. Ar-
thur W. Bromage of the political sci-
ence department of the University
of Michigan discuss mothods of reor-
ganizing state government in the
opening session Monday morning.
"The states can best assure their
,ontinued existence as component
parts of the Federal system by re-
viewing and reorganizing their gov-
ernment structure and administra-
Jive practices," Professor Bromage
"The first of these issues simmers
down to the old question of Federal
centralization versus states' rights,"
said Professor Bromage. "On this
battleground three major alternatives
are open to the American people:
"First, to consoldate the state into
regional commonwealths, such as the
Commonwealth of New England.
"Second, to amend the Federal
Constitution by granting to the Fed-
eral government a national police
power to legislate for the health, safe-
ty, morals and general welfare of the
"Third, to muddle through in the
best Anglo-Saxon tradition, as we are
now doing, without creating regional
commonwealths or giving to the Fed-
eral government a new grant of con-
"We cannot have the first policy
because the states will not turn the
Two Men Attempt
To Enter Sorority
Two men who attempted Monday
night to break into the Delta Gam-
ma sorority house, 1205 Hill St., were
frightened away by several members
of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity.
One of the Delts was conversing
with one of the Delta Gammas via
telephone when he heard her scream.
He and several of his cohorts rushed
over to the Delta Gamma house and
discovered the two intruders on the
roof. The Delts covered all visible
means of escape, but the two men
eluded their grasp.
knife upon themselves," Professor
Bromage said. "The second policy
might have carried in the abyss of the
economic crisis. To secure the rati-
fications of 36 states to new national
powers would probably be an insup-
erable task today. In following the
third policy, the national government
reaches out under its interstate com-
merce and taxing powers to attempt
regulation of industry, labor, and ag-
riculture. Through the use of the
Federal taxing power and Federal aid
we may be able to work out a new
order through Federal-State cooper-
ation, but formal readjustment of our
constitutional system seems a remote
possibility. As of old the Supreme
Court is the umpire of the Federal

Special Reunion Lunch
Camp Charlevoix, University of
Michigan Fresh Air Camp, held a re-
union luncheon recently in the Grand
Rapids Room of the League, enter-
taining 130 guests, the boys, their par-
ents, and the camp counselors. The
mothers were presented with corsages
of chrysanthemums. After luncheon,
plans were discussed for next summer
and a mid-winter reunion was
planned, as well as a winter camp
which will be held between Christmas
and New Year's at Patterson Lake.

LOOK AT THE TWO PHOTOS BELOW FOR A MOMENT.
You can see how
quickly the daylight falls off after it enters the windows. And you can
see that even on bright, sunshiny days, the pupils on the side of the room
farthest from the windows don't get enough light to do their work with-
out straining their eyes.

TODAY and TOMORROW
The photo above shows how quickly daylight falls off as you get
from the windows. We have tried to illustrate this by putting a light
pattern above the desks - the thickness of the block at any point repre-
senting the amount of light on the several rows of seats. This picture was
taken on a bright, spring day. But notice how the light falls off from 90
footcandles on the row of seats nearest the window to only five footcandles
on the inner row of seats ... In the photo below, we have tried to show
how artificial lighting must help daylight, to save pupils from eyestrain
and nearsightedness. Notice how every student is given the same "seeing"
opportunity when the inner row of elecric lights is burned throughout
the day. On dark, cloudy days, both rows of lights should be burned.
Proper lighting means less effort in seeing -less strain on eyes, nerves
and body. It is just as necessary as proper glasses. Light and glasses are
good friends. Eyes should be examined every year.
