by the Academy, and the other of-

Mathematical Section
Matter has been and can be created
from light energy, Prof. A. S. Goud-
smit of the physics department de-
clared yesterday in his address on
"Somie New Idea in Physics" before
the mathematics division of the Acad-
Pointing out that waves of high
frequency, like the gamma waves
given off by radium, have been con-
verted into positions and electrons,
Professor Goudsmit spoke of a few
of the more recent discoveries, first
however, tracing the development of
atomic structure theory through
mathematical means.
The Michigan physicist also stated
that new constituents of the atom
have been found. These, he said, are
the positron, which is similar to the
electron but has a positive charge,
and the neutron, which is exactly the
same as the protron except that it
has no charge.
The speaker showed that two view-
points were used in attacking the
problem of what matter is, the con-
ception that matter might be made
up of particles and the conception
that it might be continuous through-
out. Explaining the development of
the first view, he traced the additions
by classical mechanics to the equa-
tions which finally gave solutions for
the energies 'of satellite electrons
agieeeing with experimental observa-
Philosophy Section
In the morning section on philos-
ophy, Prof. John M. Wells of Hills-
dale College outlined the needs and
possible teaching of a course or
courses designed especially to aid ad-
vanced students in philosophy to for-
mulate their own "philosophy of
"To meet this need I am suggest-
ing that we give at least one course
to advanced college students in which
we begin with experience, with life
as we find it, with the individual
where he now is, and first help him
to consider the world of which he is
a part; second, to consider the philo-
sophical implications and explana-
tions of such a world; and third, to
study how he may best fit into it,"
Professor Wells stated.
In his speech yesterday entitled
"The actual and the ideal in human
conduct," Dr. Raymond Hoekstra of
the philosophy department spoke on
ngodern conceptions of the problems
and motives of human action.
In his address, Dr. Hoekstra espe-
cially discussed and analyzed the old
philosophical conception of a "sum-
mun bonum" as the goal of all right
action. This theory presupposes that
all action should be directed toward
an ideal state of "good," which can-
not be brought about by an alternative
state of conduct.
Forestry Section

Even from the earliest in the de-
velopment of forestry research, water
has been regarded as a factor of pri-
mary importance in conditioning the
forest environment, Dr. Clarence F.
Korstian of Duke University told as-
sembled representatives of all sec-
tions of the Michigan Academy yes-
terday at 4:15 p.m. in Natural Science
In his paper on "What Water Means
to the Forest," Dr. Korstian traced
the importance of water in tree physi-
ology, showing that water is the me-
dium by which nitrogenous com-
pounds are taken into the tree and by
which they are transported from one
part of the tree to another. The
greater amount of water absorbed by
a tree passes up through it and is
evaporated from the leaves in form of
In citing the significance of water
in forest ecology, he said that varia-
tions in the water content of the soil
is very commonly the environmental
factor limiting the distribution and
occurrence of trees and forests.

As M. Flandin Sulks
Peace-loving Londoners were treat-
ed this week to a kaleidoscopic scene
of controversy, disorder and grudging
compromise in the meeting of the
Council of the League of Nations and
the parties to the Locarno Pact.
While Foreign Secretary Anthony
Eden continued to pour oil on the
troubled waters on one hand, Foreign
Secretary Pierre-Etienne Flandin
sulked and made windy threats which
seemed aimed for the continent, where
French elections will soon be held.
Germany, at first willing to accept
an invitation to the Council meeting
on impossible terms, yielded finally
in her demands, and sent a delega-
tion headed by Joachim von Ribben-
trop to attend the storm session.
Foreign Secretary Eden, painfully
divided by his work in the Council,
the meeting of the parties to the Lo-
carno Treaty and the British Cab-
inet, found the going rough as he
acted in a number of different capa-
cities at the same time. Prime Min-
ister Stanley Baldwin's cabinet, sup-
ported by the British press, is threat-
ened by a split over Eden's attempts
to cooperate with France, while
France is "disgusted" by Eden's com-
promise with Germany. Adding a
new factor to the muddled situation,
Russia's spokesman, Foreign Commis-
sar Maxim Litvinoff supported
France's strong stand in a scathing
speech calling for punishment of
The result of the week's turmoil
seems to be slight, the only accomp-
lishment having been the bringing of
German representatives to the Coun-
cil meeting, which brought up to the
end of the week with Germany op-
posed to all the suggestions offered
thus far, causing Britain and France
to consider an alliance with the other
parties of the Treaty. The next
move is now up to Chancellor Hitler,
who must accept the Council's terms
if he is to avoid the menace to the
Reich which will be created by a four-
power alliance.
Tie Germans Are Here'
Answering the Council of the
League of Nations' invitation 'to at-
tend the meeting in London, Germany
early in the week agreed to accept
under the conditions that she be re-
garded as an equal among the other
nations at the meeting, and that her
peace proposals be considered imme-
diately. Prime Minister Pierre-Eti-
enne Flandin threatened to bolt the
meeting should the Reich's conditions
be accepted, adding to the troubles
of Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden,
torn between a desire to cooperate
with France and the need of retain-
ing the support of Prime Minister
Stanley Baldwin's cabinet, which,
prompted by the British press, sought
peace at any cost. Flandin's threat
was not taken seriously, however, in
view of the fact that French elections
loom up in the near future.
Compromising even more than was
expected, the Council agreed to the
first of Germany's conditions, so that
Germany decided to attend the meet-
ing, to the disgust of Foreign Minister
Flandin, heartened by Foreign Com-
missar Maxim Litvinoff's scathing de-
nunciation of Germany. Preceded by
the dramatic statement, "the Ger-
mans are here," Jaochim von Ribben-
trop, trusted Reich agent, flew to
London and the Council meeting, ad-
mitting that Germany had consented
to allow their peace proposals to be
put off until later meeting.
Still Another Pact
On Thursday the work of the Coun-
cil was overshadowed by the report
that the Locarno powers had reached
an agreement concerning Germany's

actions. The Agreement: first, re-
course to the Hague tribunal to de-
cide the compatibility of the Franco-
Soviet pact with the Locarno treaty;

second, establishment of a demilitar-
ized zone on German territory; third,
occupation of this zone by British
and Italian troops, and fourth, prac-
tical agreements not announced. All
this is, of course, subject to German
Should the Reich not find the terms
of the agreement acceptable, the four
parties to the treaty, England, France,
Belgium and Italy, will form an alli-
ance of mutual assistance. In France,
the Chamber of the Deputies received
news of this plan with wild cheering.
In England, the House of Commons
was quiet and anxious during Mr.
Eden's announcement. The Foreign
Secretary has, meanwhile, begun ef-
forts to get France to yield in response
to Germany's anticipated refusal to
accept the demilitarization clause.

Red-Blooded Spaniards
In other parts of Europe the po-
litical situation is also tense. Spain's
Communists continue to celebrate
with violence the election of their can-
didate, Premier Manuel Azana, who
finds himself faced with the problem
of how to dispose of his army, which
would have peace in Spain. The
army has, however, pledged its sup-
port to Azana's government, which,
no doubt, has caused him to wonder
just where he does stand. Violence
continues unabated. The entire coun-
try has been declared in a state of
alarm which has been extended for a
Italy, still hoping for an end to the
embarrassing sanctions which hinder
her, continues the African war, an-
nouncing a number of minor victor-
ies, and vigorously denying Ethiopian
reports of Ethiopian victories. Italy
plays a waiting game, assuming that
when the powers in London settle
down to a discussion of Hitler's de-
nunciation of the Locarno Pact, they
will find they need Italy, whereupon
Italy, it is stated, will refuse t assume
any international obligations while
sanctions remain in force.
Flood Of The Century
Floods this week increased with
remarkable rapidity, counting by yes-
terday 187 dead and unestimated
property damage. Extending from
the Ohio Valley to Maine many of
the East's industrial cities were com-
pletely flooded or inconvenienced to
the extent of discontinuing all busi-
ness. Thursday, President Roose-
velt issued a call for RedrCross aid
and assumed personal direction of
flood relief in the nation.
New England: Northeast Massa-
chusetts and Maine were covered by
raging rivers yesterday. Hartford,
Springfield and Northampton were
hard hit, and many cities were en-
tirely without light, their power
plants useless.
Ohio River Valley: Northeastern
Ohio and West Virginia had many
cities well under with high water, in-
cluding Pomeroy, Gallipolis, Ironton,
Point Pleasant and Huntington were
in grave danger.
Pennsylvania: By yesterday all
rivers had receded and the danger
was past, but Pittsburgh, flooded
earlier in the week, was still with-
out power and was threatened with
a scarcity of water. Johnstown, its
business districts buried deep in mud
and debris, was threatened with the
same conditions as Pittsburgh. Medi-
cal supplies and water were rushed
to the many places demanding them.
District of Columbia: The capital
was threatened earlier in the week
and dikes were constructed within
two blocks of the White House. All
danger had subsided yesterday as the
Potomac River receded.
The Borah Candidacy
Sen. William E. Borah (Rep.,

Idaho) on Monday received a tele-
gram from the publisher of the Wit-

chita Beacon, demanding that he
apologize to Gov. Alf M. Landon for
his statement that Oklahoma oil in-
terests were too much in Republican
politics, an implication, it was
claimed, that Landon was being
backed by the oil interests. Replied
the Senator: "I think you owe Gov-
ernor Landon an apology for your
blundering defense of him when no
defense was called for." Hamilton
Fish (Rep., N.Y.) followed with a
prediction that if the Republican
party was to carry any western state
"it must get rid of the intolerance,
arrogance and domination by wealth
and reaction as represented by a
handful of executives of big oil in-
terests imposing their will upon the
Republican party."
Thursday, in Youngston, O., Borah
outlined what he believes should be
the planks of the Republican party
in the coming election and affirmed
that he was after the nomination "by
honorable methods." He stood for:
1) Complete and effective neutrality;
2) living up to the Constitution as it
exists or may be amended; 3) com-
plete independence of the Federal
judiciary; 4) opposition to monopoly
in all forms; 5) a cooperative system
of agriculture and disposal of the
"scarcity" policy; 6) elimination of
bureaucratic government as much as
possible; 7) elimination of all party
politics in relief administration; 8)
removal of. government from private
business; 9) adequate old age pen-
sions; and 10) opposition to inflation
and deflation.
Net York Strike Ends
Mayor LaGuardia's citizen com-
mittee negotiated an agrement be-
tween the Realty Advisory Board and
the building service employes union
a week ago. Sunday and Monday
workers reported for work, assured
if there was no dispute between
individual ownrs and strikers
over sabotage or violence that they
would be employed. In such dis-
putes, an arbiter was agreed upon.
Wage differences will be taken up
this week ,and hours will be dis-
cussed a year hence.
The union was displeased by the
slow rate of reemployment, and
strike-breakers had trouble collect-
ing their due from employers.

The Black Committee
Tables were somewhat turned this
week when, instead of criticism of
the Black committee investigation of
lobbying, Congress lit with full force
on William Randolph Hearst, one of
the committee's most outspoken
critics. It was started by Rep. John
T. McSwain (Dem., S. C.), chairman
of the committee on military affairs,
when he read the content of a confi-
dential telegram from the publisher
to one of his "minions." Hearst's
telegram ordered editorials suggesting
the "impeachment of Mr. McSwain.
He is the enemy within the gates of
Congress, the nation's citadel. Sug-
gest advocating duplicating West
Point in the Middle West and Annap-
olis on the Pacific Coast."
The Senate Friday voted unani-
mously to support the Black Com-
mittee and appropriated, $10,000 to
obtain counsel for its various court
