Borah Hits Monopoly
In Ohio Address
-(IP)--U.S. Senator William E.
Borah tonight called upon the
June 9 Republican National Con-
vention at Cleveland "to, go on
record against monopoly and
nominate a man who has the
courage to do the job."
"That does not necessarily
mean me," said the Idaho veteran
as he opened a six-day speaking
tour for the Ohio presidential
delegates at the May 12 primary.
"If the party of Lincoln and
Garfield resolves to do the right
thing in adopting a platform and
nominating a candidate against
this great evil, there will not be
a single wound or sting in my
political soul."

Four Countries
Band Together
To Avoid War
Dr. McDowell, After Year's
Study In Persia, States
Nations Vow Neutrality
There are at least four nations who
have banded together to stay out of
the next war - they are Persia (now
jealously called Iran by the Persians),
Afghanistan, Turkey and Iraq, ac-
cording to Dr. Robert McDowell,
Guggenheim fellow who has just re-
turned from a year's study in Iran.
Forming a "Little. Entente" these
countries have vowed in the event of
another war they will maintain abso-
lute neutrality Dr. McDowell said.
In the last war Turkey was made a
real battleground and suffered great-
ly from repercussions following the
war. It is only under Kamal that
a "real comeback" has been started,
Dr. McDowell explained.
The government of Iran, he said,
was an acknowledge dictatorship-
one absolute and powerful. Under
the Shah, the political set-up is much
similar to that in Italy or Germany.
At the present time, Dr. McDowell
continued, the Shah is making a tre-
mendous effort to modernize and to
introduce western customs into Iran.
Railways are being developed, roads
are being built, and many of the old
customs are being thrown away to
make way for progress.
However, the Shah, according to
Dr. McDowell, does not have every-
thing his own way, for he has few
assistants with the background or
education to help him in his modern-
ization. In Italy, Dr. McDowell point-
ed out, Mussolini has numerous aides
to help him in his reforms, and there
are other capable individuals in the
country with the requisite qualities
for carrying on business.
In Iran there is no real "individual-
ism," Dr. McDowell said. This has
necessitated, he said, in most of the
industries being made government
monopolies. The great idol of the
Shah is Premier Kamal of Turkey,
and numerous reforms in Turkey have
been followed by similar ones in Iran.
On the present crisis in diplomatic
circles between the United States
and Iran, Mr.'McDowell would make
no comment. He added that at the
present time a very close watch is
kept upon everything written in
America concerning Iran, for the gov-
ernment officials are anxious to keep
close watch on public opinion in
America concerning Iran.
No one country has dominated the
Iran in respect to politics or capital,
Mr. McDowell added, and the people
resent any domination by any of the
foreigners present, at times, throwing
objectionable persons out of the
In his research Dr. McDowell, who
is assistant in the Institute for Ar-
cheological Research, was looking for
old coins of the Hellenistic and Par-
thian periods, in an attempt to learn
more about the history of these per-
iods and to follow certain discoveries
made by the University expedition in
During his stay, Dr. McDowell said,
he was treated with the greatest cour-
tesy and respect by both the govern-
ment officials and people. In fact,
he added, these persons went more
"than out of their way" to make his
stay pleasant and his study profitable.
Numerous museums and libraries
were thrown open for his use, he
Undoubtedly, he continued, great
strides are being made toward pro-
gress in Iran, and the brilliant Shah,
whom he described as a "pleasant

and quiet chap," is doing- much for
his country-more than any other
man could, under the circumstances, l
During the course of his studyDr.
McDowell traveled more than 2,000
miles in Persia alone, devoting espe-
cial attention to those parts of Iran
that were traversed by merchants fol-
lowing the old trade routes of the
Middle Ages.

Ypsi Team Meets
L o e a Speakers
TodayAt Union
"Whether Congress Should Be Able
to Override Supreme Court Decisions
by a Two-Thirds Majority" will be de-
bated by the novice squad of Sigma
Rho Tau, honorary engineering
speech society, and by the women's
varsity debate team of Michigan State
Normal College of Ypsilanti at 8 p.m.
today in the Union.
The Ypsilanti team will attempt to
prove the proposition that "Congress
should be empowered to re-enact by
a two-thirds majority legislation de-
clared unconstitutional by the Su-
preme Court," while the Sigma Rho
Tau team will assume the negative
side of this question made timely
by the recent New Deal decisions of
the United States Supreme Court.
This debate, according to Prof.
Robert D. Brackett, faculty adviser
to Sigma Rho Tau, is the first of a
series designed to give the newly-
elected members of Sigma Rho Tau
debating experience. The next de-
bate of the series will be with the
men's varsity debate team of Mich-
igan State Normal college of Ypsi-
lanti upon the same subject with
the Sigma Rho Tau taking over the
burden of proof. The series will be
completed May 19, when the speech
society's affirmative team reengages
the Ypsilanti men's team in Ann
Arbor and the negative team meets
the Ypsilanti women's squad at Ypsi-
Sigma Rho Tau's novice squad,

Group Is Taken Through
Underworld During Tour
Sponsored By SCA
With the inspired shouts of "Sister
Lucy Smith" and her enthusiastic
Negro followers, and the multi-voiced
babble and cry of the Maxwell Street
old world Jewish markets still ring-
ing in their ears, 25 University stu-
dentsrreturned early yesterday morn-
ing from Chicago on the last SCA-
sponsored sociology field trip this
The group was met at the train in
Chicago Friday afternoon by Dir.
Ben Reitman, described by Richard
S. Clark, '37, secretary of the SCA,
as one of the most interesting and
widely-known characters of the city.
He accompanied the group to dinner
in a downtown restaurant, and then
conducted them on a tour of the
underworld. He led Chicago's May
Day parade on the same day.
A battered felt hat pulled over
bushy grey hair, unpressed clothes,
a grey moustache, a walking stick, and
a purple ribbon worn haphazardly in
the manner of a cravat, all went to
make up the general appearance of
this medical doctor who has for years
practiced among the underworld of
Chicago. He treasures the purple
ribbon, it having been used as a sash
by the radical leader who led the
Haymarket riots back in the 1890's
before he was hung.
Small of stature, a seedy cap pushed
back on his head, the "agitator"
stepped forward. "You are Univer-
sity of Michigan students," he com-
menced, "I am from the University of

Famous Derby Day
(Continued from Page 1)
man, the bars were let clown and
eleven people walked through.
Already a big crowd had gathered
in the beautiful enclosure and the
crap games moved over to the infield
as the time for the first race ap-
proached. Negroes in more than a
hundred circles knelt on the ground
watching the bones for hours at a
time, paying attention to nothing
else until Derby time. Occasionally
one of these groups would scatter
and two knives flash in the hot sun
The mounted police paid little notice
and appeared to be more concerned
with whether or not the crowd would
break down the fence that fronted
on the stretch-much more concerned
than the 700 school boys shoveled in-
to National Guard uniforms for the
day and stationed every ten feet along
both sides of the track.
Bookies appeared in the crowd to
take the bets of anyone interested,
and small time touts roamed through
the spectators with 'sure things.'
As the afternoon progressed, and
the sun sent the temperature up to
almost 90, thirst became acute and
darkies circulated through the crowd
selling water from whiskey bottles
and dirty pails at two-bits a cup.
There was perfect freedom in the
infield with people moving up to the
fence for the preliminary races and
then milling about in between, while
on the grandstand side, packed like
sardines and standing on tip toes,
an overflow crowd of cash customers
paid a dollar each for periscopes in
order to get an occasional glimpse of
the track.
After the fourth race, the crowd
began to move up the stretch near
the Derby start.
The brilliant parade to the post fol-
lowed. The greatest horseflesh in
the country was within six feet of
the infield crowd. They saw every
move in that much discussed start,
saw the horses as they raced up the
backstretch, watched the jockies as
they made their moves at the top of
the stretch, and gulped as Bold Ven-
ture just lasted to win by a neck, and

it cost them 35 cents.

Iowa-" Punctuating his remarks by
waving his cigar butt, he went on
for 15 minutes on the "Philosophy
of the Communist." By that time,
according to reports, the audience
contained more than 100 persons.
Sunday morning the group heard
in the Sister Lucy Smith Church at
Langley St. and 37th the "Sister"
herself, in a typical Negro revival
Imeeting. They did not stay for the
entire pictu'esque service which lasts
from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. every
Sunday, but they came away after
almost an hour's "worship" at the
;hrine of Mother Smith's children
with a lasting impression. They car-
ried away memories of the 300-pound
"Sister" exhorting the sinners to "take
the path of righteousness," her ample
body swaying to the music of a
piano and bass drum. They remem-
ber the hundreds of Negro voices lifted
in an old-fashioned spiritual, and they
remember the late-comers to the
meeting, arriving with upheld hands,
shouting, "Praise the Lord! . . .Bless
his name! . . . Hallelujah!"

attended Cambridge University,
where he was a close friend of the
English poet, Rubert Brooke. To-
gether with Brooke, whom Mr. Pole
characterized as "one of the greatest
and yet simplest souls I have ever
known," he organized the Cambridge
Dramatic Society, which from its
modest beginnings has grown into an
imposing organization.
After that Mr. Pole received his
Shakespearean training from his
uncle, and came into close contact
with his uncle's friends, such great
literary figures as George Bernard
Shaw, and John Galsworthy. Later
he came to America, and rarely goes
back to London, because his health
suffers in the damp climate.
For several years he played im-
portant parts in New York produc-
tions, among them the role of the
Ghost in John Barrymore's produc-
tion of "Hamlet," which he said
marked "the high point of Barry-
more's career, before he went into the
movies," and the New York produc-
tion of Dostoevsky's "The Idiot." In
1928 he underwent a spine operation
which kept him an invalid for four
years, but after his recovery he has
spent most of his time in California.
There he has directed many pro-
ductions in Pasadena and Los An-
geles, and played the role of the
Christus in the Rose Bowl Passion
Play for several years. Next fall Mr.
Pole will go back to London to stage
his own version of Dostoevsky's "The
Brothers Karamazov."
