On World War
Decisions In Crises Held
Important Implications,
Professor Believes
Pointing out that a decision in a
crisis by a statesman or commanding
general may mean "the difference be-
tween an early peace and years of
fighting or between ultimate victory
and disastrous defeat," Prof. Preston
W. Slosson, of the history depart-
mcnt, spoke yesterday on "Important
Crises in the World War" over the
University Broadcasting System.
The decisive and most important
battle of the war, the first battle of
the Marne, was the first crisis men-
tioned by Professor Slosson. When
the Germans retreated ,"Paris was
saved, and with it the war, for Russia
was then pressing Germany so hard
in the east that it was many months
before a general German offensive in
the West was possible," he said. At
that time, the speaker emphasized,
the war of movement ended, and
four years of dull siege operations
Turning to the eastern front, Pro-
fessor Slosson pointed out the im-
portance of the battle of Tannenberg,
which saved Germany. In this bat-
tle, he said, Generals Hindenburg
and Ludendorff trapped the Russian
armies, and relieved Russia's pres-
sure upon the east.
Failure to take advantage of the
first gas attack used in the war,
which caught the British by sur-
prise, was called by Professor Slos-
son a loss of opportunity for the
Germans "to break the British line,
seize the Channel ports, turn the
flank of the French line ,and win the
A similar failure by the Allies to
take advantage of the first attack by
tanks in 1916, which came at a time
when it was thought the defensive
was invulnerable ,was another loss
of opportunity, the speaker added, al-
though it did bring about more
movement in the last months of the

the entire year.
In the work of teacher placements,
the office has made a definite effort
to contact all the educational insti-
tutions of the state and the institu-
tions of college rank throughout the
country, in order to make as many
contacts as possible for the immediate
graduates and the alumni. Accord-
ing to the report this effort was re-
warded by a substantial increase in
the 'number of calls during 1935.
More than 1300 calls for people with
educational training were received
during that year, as compared to 885
the preceding year.
In the field of personell research,
an intensive study is being made of
the similarities and differences of the
recognized leaders, non-leaders and
self maintainence groups on the cam-
pus, with special reference to per-
sonality traits. Further research
work is being done in cooperation
with administrators and graduate
students in an extension course.

notice the diference
in the aroma of

Every person who knows about
tobacco will understand this...


to get

a pleasing aroma is

just like getting a pleasing taste
