Gen. Smedlfy Butler-- Quakler
Turned Soldier-- To Tal§ek On War

Outspoken And Dynamic,
He Has Had -His Share
Of Conflicts
A Quaker who became a soldier,
but whose experiences since his en-j
listment many years ago have given
him more reasons for renouncing war
than simply the faith of his parentsj
-that is Maj.-Gen. Smedley Darling-
ton Butler, who will speak on "War Is!
A Racket" at 8:15 p.m. Thursday in
Hill Auditorium under the auspices
of the Students' Alliance.
"As a soldier I long suspected that'
war was a racket; not until I retiredc
to civil life did I fully realize it,"
General Butler has said. Never
quiescent once he has formed a con-
viction, since that realization he has
spent the majority of his time in
speaking and writing about what he
has seen and what he believes about
Turbulent Career
General Butler's turbulent career
has made him famous throughout the
country. His personal courage hasI
made all respect him, but his im-
patience with exaggerated ceremony1
and pompous custom has more than,
once upset his Washington supervis-
ors - chiefly Secretary of the Navy
Charles Francis Adams of the Hoov-
er cabinet.
The story is told that in introduc-
ing Secretary Adams to a group of
officers, he said, "Gentlemen, I want
you to meet the Secretary of the God
damned Navy." Twice in public
speeches he incurred the official dis-
favor of Adams. In a Pittsburgh
speech he told of the Marines' meth-
ods of conducting elections in Nicara-
gua, of declaring the "opposition"
party bandits and closing the polls'
before they could vote.
A more famous incident is the Phil-,

adelphia seh, i whuti he told of
a hitain'1 inci>n in wich Ben-
ito V",Sh was ll involved.
At the sa tme he was arrested
for this sta,' mnt, h was officially
praisedr:y - th v D ipartnent in

It was General Butler who appeared
before the Congresional Committee
on un-American act ivities. and told
of the efforts of Gerald C. MacGuire,
Wall Street bond--salesman, to in-
duce him to head a Fascist march on
Now retired, General Butler has
spent more of his life in the army.
He joined when he was 16, and this
story is told of his conversation with
his father after his under-age en-
"When did thee tell them thee
was born?" his father asked.
"April 20, 1880."
"Thy mother and I were not mar-
ried until February, 1879, so do not
add any more years to thy age."

Law Institute
Is Scheduled
For March 20
Second Annual Convention
Of Policemen To Last
Through April 2

The third Institute for Law-En-
forcement Officers sponsored by the
University Extension Division has
been arranged to take place on four
consecutive days, beginning March
30 and lasting until April 2.
According to an announcement is-
sued by the Extension Division the
purpose of the Institute is to fa-
cilitate the exchange of information
between officers and other persons in-
terested in effective enforcement of
the laws relating particularly to pub-
lic safety.
At the first institute, held two years
ago, emphasis was placed upon the
utilization of those branches of
knowledge allied to medicine, and at
the institute held last year the use
of physical and chemical inventions
in the detection of crime was espe-
cially emphasized.
Effective traffic control in the
county and in the city and the pre-
vention of traffic accidents will be
the principal consideration of the
institute to be held March 30.
Prof. Orlando W. Stephenson has
been chosen general chairman of the
meetings of the institute, which will
be held every morning and afternoon.
The first two days of the conven-
tion will be spent more particularly in
a discussion of law and matters of
detection while the last two traffic
regulation and control will receive
.the major attention of the conference.
