Women's Group
To Hold Parley
On Government
Institute Of Government
Plans One Day Session At
At League;_Many To Talk
Plans for a one-day session of the
Women's Institute of Government
to be held at the Michigan League
here Jan. 16 were announced yester-
day by local members of the organi-
zation, devoted to a study of govern-
ment projects and problems.
Among the chief speakers an-
nounced for the program is Mrs.
Thomas McAllister, of Grand Rap-
ids, graduate of Mt. Holyoke, and a
daughter of Regent Richard R. Smith.
Mrs. McAllister, who is prominent in
public affairs and women's activities,
will speak on "The New Democracy."
She is a member of the national com-
mittee of Young Democrats, legisla-
tive chairman of the state branch of
the American Association of Uni-
versity Women, vice-chairman of the
state Consumers' League, and a for-
mer member of the Michigan liquor
control commission.
Chairman of the program commit
tee is Mrs. James H. McDonald, of
Ann Arbor, vice-chairman of the
Democratic State central committee.
Dr. William D Henderson, director
of the Extension Division of the Uni
vrsiy, will spek at the morning
sesior on '"Federal Aid !o CCC am
other Young Activities." Miss Mary
Ward, deputy commissioner of im
migration a the port of Boiton, wil
discuss "Immigration" at the after-
noon session.
Two other speakers for the society
are Mrs. J. O. Garland of Muskegon
Heights, who will discuss social se-
curity, and Harry Steffe, AnnArbor
field representative of the FHA, who

lanti, and Mrs. Mobel O'Neil of Saline.
Cross Finishes His
Testimony In Drake
Estate Fraud Case
Prof. Arthur L. Cross of the his-
tory department Wednesday fur-
nished the climax of the government's
mail fraud case against 41 defend-
ants in aChicago courtroom with his
testimony regarding the heirs and
the estate of Sir Francis Drake.
The trial, an outgrowth of a prev-
iQus trial in 1933 in which Oscar
Hartzell was convicted of engineering
a.swindle of Americans with the false
claim that he was an heir of Drake
and entitled to the estate, has been
going on for several weeks.
The present defendants are ac-
cused of being accessories to Hart-
zel!s crime, which cost investors
more than a million and a quarter
dollars.
Professor Cross' testimony was used
to establish the government's claim
that the famous "sea dog" left no
unprobated estate to which American
claimants might have any rights.
Professor Cross stated that there
were no children on the record of the
16th century admiral. The basis of
the Hartzell claim is that Drake
had a child by an unknown wife.
In response to a question about
Stuart Chase, noted economist, who
has mentioned a large Drake estate
in some of his writings, Professor
Cross replied, "He is a popular writer.

I have not heard of him as an his-
torical scholar,"
I Nursery Schools
Are Opened Here
Four emergency nursery schools
have been established in Ann Arbor
for children between the ages of two
and four and a half. The children
are cared for by a trained staff who
are on duty while the schools are in
session from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
These nursery schools are located
at Perry, Bach and Donovan Schools
and the fourth is at 318 South Ash-
ley Street. Children enrolled in the
school are served a balanced lunch-
eon at noon.
Any family on student aid or whose
income is low is eligible to enroll
their children. According to those
in charge, many married students
who have children have already en-
rolled them in one of these nursery
schools.

IQ Can Be Raised By Practice
Pyschology Professor Reports

Repeated Tests On College
Sophomores Lifts Score
Of Intelligence Quizzes
By WILLIAM DE LANCEY
Are you dissatisfied with your I.Q.
rating? Perhaps you haven't had
enough practice in taking the tests.
This sob to persons nursing infer-
iority complexes over scoring low
scores on the "intelligence quotient"
tests can be inferred from a recent
survey prepared by Dr. Edward B.
Greene of the psychology depart-
ment. In this investigation 25 stand-
ard tests were repeated four times
with groups of University sopho-
mores. As the groups became more
expert in executing the tests, the
improvements in performance ranged
from 0 to 1900 per cent.
Undertook Investigation
Dr. Greene undertook the investi-
gation to determine the results of
practice on standard form tests in
both theoretical and applied psy-
chology. According to Dr. Greene,
"the prediction of success in voca-
tional and educational activities
would be greatly improved if indi-
viduals could be compared at known
levels of efficiency. It is seldom use-
ful to compare individuals when it
is known that one of them has had
considerably more practice than the
other."!
Subjects for this investigation were
253 University sophomores, both men
and women. The work done by each
student demanded, 10 hours of test-
answering, which was done in a quiet
class room in the late afternoon. Ex-
cept for the singly-administered in-
dividual tests, the examining was
done with groups of 25 to 30 students.
According to Dr. Greene the tested
group was highly selected, with a
mean age of 20 years and five months.
Interpretations Vary
Advances in the technique of in-
terpretation varied for differents
tests. Time interval, tonal memory
and comparison of auditory pitch
tests resulted in increases of less than
five per cent as the students became
more experienced. Increases for six
to 25 per cent were recorded in such
tests as specific information (vo-
cabulary) and accuracy of movement,
as in aiming for one minute at one
and one-half millimeter circles.

After having had the benefit of
practice the test groups scored in-
creases from 26 to 75 per cent for
easy comparisons (speed of easy
reading and easy pencil mazes) and,
hard comparisons (difficult cube de-
signs).
Comparisons of medium difficulty,
such as medium pencil mazes and
equation completion, resulted in bet-
terments of 76 to 200 per cent. Tests
in which the 253 students scored over
300 per cent improvement include
solutions of puzzles which can be re-
membered, such as the "mouse trap,"
or hard pencil mazes, where no
specific memory is required.
"Only those tests which show
from 0 to 25 per cent improvement
can' be used for comparisons of in-
dividuals," Dr. Greene stated. "It
is probably true that a considerable
per cent of the increases in tests of
this group are due to changes in
methods of approaching the test and
in attitude toward the test situation,
he continued.
in explaining the causes of score
improvement, Dr. Green stated "if
a test score shows great improve-
anent with practice, it is probable
that various processes are eliminated
or introduced. Those tests which
have nearly the same scores through-
out presumably depend on processes
which change very little with prac-
tice."
Services Resumed
At Jewish Center
Hillel Foundation will resume its

University and Oakland.
These services are open to students

'Restoration Of
apsurgo Line
IAttempted
Little Entente Claimed To
Be Weakening Against
Monarchist Campaign
VIENNA, Jan. 9. -- (A') - Austria's
monarchists swung into a fresh cam-
paign to enthrone Archduke Otto to-
day, encouraged by a declaration
from Baron Friedrich von Wiesner
that the Little Entente was weaken-
ing in its stand against restoration
of the Hapsburgs.
Baron von Wiesner, launching the
new drive to elevate Otto to the
throne of his father, Emperor Karl,
who abdicated after the World war,
asserted last night at an enthusiastic
meeting of Legitimists :
"The sentiment of Czechoslovakia
has changed radically. Where Praha
a year ago said restoration means
war, the present threat of Naziism
has caused many leaders of Czech
thought to welcome the prospect of
Otto's coming to the throne of his
fathers.
"Beliefs that restoration might in-
deed wreck the Little Entente, Czech-
oslovakia, Rumania and Yugoslavia)
and possibilities thataEntente armies
might swarm over Austria to keep
Otto from the throne have vanish."
Another Legitimist leader, Baron
Hans von Zessner, asserted there
would be no guarantee of lasting
peace to Central Europe until the
Hapsburgs -including Otto, now in
Belgian exile - were returned.
Twenty-five prisoners at Alcatraz,
which houses the toughest Federal
criminals, are taking correspondence
courses at the University of Cali-
fornia.
Heller, director of the Foundation,
will continue his series on "Dramatic
Moments in the History of Judaism,"
by explaining "The Pharisees, Who
Were They and What Did They Do?'"'

Faculty Men
Give Talks On
Jackson Day
Muyskens Ukens Jackson
To Roosevelt; Maurer
Scores Supreme Court
Prof. John H. Muyskens of the
speech department and Prof. Wesley
H. Maurer of the journalism depart-
ment carried the name of the Uni-
versity in to the opening of the Dem-
ocratic campaign meetings through-
out Michigan Wednesday night.
Addressing more than 450 Jackson
Day diners at Jackson, Professor
Muyskens, Democratic candidate for
mayor here last year, declared that
"President Roosevelt is giving his all
to save this country from the treach-
ery of big money interests. The Mel-
ions, the Morgans and the Du Ponts,"
he charged, forced President Wilson
to threw the United States into the
World War.
Striking an analogy between the
administrations of President Roose-
velt and President Jackson, even as
the Chief Executive did himself the
same evening, Professor Muyskens
hailed the President as a "new Jack-,
son." During Jackson's term of of-
fice ,he said, it was always the "tor-
ies, identified with big financial in-
terests," that opposed him. The
same is true of President Roosevelt,
he asserted.
The United States Supreme Court
drew a vitrolic attack from Prcfessor
Maurer when he addressed the Jack-
son Day dinner in Flint. "The elder-
ly gentlemen of the Supreme Court"
have a "jurisprudence out of date
with its moth-eaten precedence and
camphor ball decisions," Professor
Maurer charged. "The Constitution
was made for us," he said. "We were
not made for the Constitution." The
Court, in the opinion of Professor
Maurer, shows a lack of social con-
sciousness and foresight in Ls de-
cisions
Brown Discusses

elections, Professor Brown relates, 25
states voted at large for their dele-
gates, 14 chose them by districts and
4 combined the methods.
The same divergence of opinion
prevailed with regard to ways of
nominating the delegates ,the article
continues. Professor Brown found
that 25 states nominated by petitions,
and in the remaining 18, "almost
every conceivable method was em-
ployed, "including nomination by the
governor, by mass conventions of
electors, by nominating committees,
boards and caucuses, by primary
elections, by personal action of in-
dividual and by party state executive
committees.
Few of the states, he declares,
specifically bound the delegates to
vote in accordance with the result of
the ballots on which they were elect-

ed, although one of them ,Arizona,
"capped the climax" declaring that
failure of a delegate to follow his
platform was to be classed as a
misdemeanor, his vote not considered
and his office deemed vacant.
Professor Brown emphasizes that,
again in conflict with an opinion of
the Maine supreme court, that the
conventions were not deliberative,
bodies and that merely reflected the
will of the people who voted for their
delegates. Indiana, alone, he found,
provided for extended debate.
The majority of the states, how-
ever, according to Professor Brown,
expressed the sentiment of a Wyom-
ing delegate who said: "We are here
to bury Caesar and the quicker the
better.
In compiling his voluminous na-
tion-wide statistics, Professor Brown
had the assistance of two of his stu-
dents, S. Beach Conger, Jr., '32, and
Robert S. Johnson, '33.
