Plan Sale
Of B1onds
For Peace
Three Coupons Are Cited
As 'A Concrete Effort
To Prevent War'

In Peace Education

Council Names 10-Point
Pacific Program
More than 25 students last night
volunteered assistance to the Peace
Bond Committee of the University
Peace Council, which is to begin the
sale of Peace Bonds in Ann Arbor
Thursday morning.
Citing the effort as a "concrete ef-
fort to prevent war," Prof. Walter C
Sadler of the engineering college,
president of the Ann Arbor Common
Council, yesterday lent his endorse-
ment to the movement.
Practical Views Used {
"The proposed sale of Peace Bonds
by the Michigan Peace Council is
part of a concrete effort to prevent
war," he said. "Unlike many similar
movements the Michigan Peace Coun-
cil is approaching the problem from
a practical point of view. Others have
failed in the past because their sole
approach toward a solution rested
upon complete disarmament with no
regard for practical considerations
of the situation. The causes of war
apparently lie in the peculiarities of
human nature, and armament is a
mere means of a defective society to
solve an international difficulty;
,"The direction of the present move-
ment is against the causes of war, so
weakening the power of international
diplomats that the sparks of confla-
gration will be stamped out at the
start, or their effects minimized. It is
a pleasure to learn of efforts being di-
rected at fundamentals, rather than
merely destroying the defensive arms
of the country.
3 Types Issued
The bonds are to be issued in de-
nominations of $1, $5 and $10. Each
bond has three coupons attached to
it. The first coupon provides that
thirty cents from the amount of the
bond will pay for a year's subscription
to "Peace Action," a monthly maga-
zine issued in Washington, D.C. The
second coupon provides that 40 per
cent of the amount of the bond be
given to some organization specified
by the subscriber, and the local Peace
Council is planning to give its share
of money thus gained to the Emer-
gency Peace Campaign, which is
sending youths to camps this summer
to be informed on the subject of
peace, and subsequently to circulate
in rural areas, organizing peace senti-
The third coupon provides oppor-
tunity for a peace poll on important
issues after the manner of the recent
British peace poll. It asks the fol-
lowing questions: 1) Should we pro-

Sing Will Give
2 Loving Cups

Two loving cups, one for attend-
ance computed on a percentage basis
and one for the finest melody, will
be awarded to fraternities at the sec-
ond annual Interfraternity Sing in
front of the General Library at 7 p.m.,
Friday, May 15, it was announced last
night, by Robert E. Merrill, '36E,
chairman of the Interfraternity Coun-
cil Sing Committee.
Each fraternity will sing one fra-
ternity song and one Michigan song.
There will be group singing, Merrill
said, probably upon completion of
the fraternity competition.
The melody of the Rraternities will
be judged by Dean Joseph A. Bursley,
Prof. David E. Mattern and Prof.
E. William Doty, both of the School
of Music.
In developing the Interfraternity
Sing as a tradition here Michigan
fraternities are following similar
movements of Wabash University and
the University of Chicago, both of
which have proved highly successful,
Merrill said.

department declared yesterday in an
The success in the election of the
left wing united Popular Front-Radi-
cal Socialists, Socialists and Com-
munists -has been hailed as a great
victory for the left. But Dr. Hene-
man believes it is a "qualified vic-
tory." This is so, he said, "because
it will be a miracle if these leftists
parties can get together to support
permenantly a government. They
have united for electoral purposes
against a common enemy - fascism.
But the question now is, can they
unite in the chamber of deputies to
support a positive program of action?
History indicates they cannot."
There is a great difference between
a right wing Radical Socialist, who
is but a mild liberal, Dr. Heneman
explained, and a left wing Commu-
nist, who is openly affiliated with the
Third Internationale. And in be-
tween these extremes of the leftists,
he continued, are the left wing Radi-
cal Socialists, right wing Socialists,

tion long held by the more conserva-
tive Radical Socialists. The Com-
munists now have 81 seats, a total
which Dr. Heneman pointed out sur-
passes anything like what Commun-
ist leaders dared hope for. And since
310 votes are needed for a majority
and thus for support of a govern-
ment, Dr. Heneman is of the opinion
that no one party of the Left can
withdraw its support without the fall
of a cabinet.
"It is doubtful," he declared, "if
the Communists will allow any of
their members to participate in a
cabinet. Premier Albert Sarraut,
Radical Socialist head of the govern-
ment, will probably resign before
Parliament convens in June, and if
a government is to be formed at all,
the Communist support is necessary."
Dr. Heneman pointed to Leon Blum,
head of the Socialist party, and Ed-
uard Deladier, left wing Radical So-
cialist and former premier, as logical

discussions, lectures, and conferences
on the problems of publishing school,
papers, magazines, and annuals, will

with a luncheon Saturday noon.
While on the campus the delegates

The unprecedented enrollment has
created a shortage of room accom-

with extra room at their disposal be
generous enough to offer it to the
MIPA for the short stay here by
calling the department office in
Haven Hall.
Prominent speakers will address
four general assemblies during the
sessions, and authorities in special
fields will head 26 round-table discus-
sion on topics of interest to the high
school journalists. In addition there
will be a banquet and dance at the
League Friday night, the Saturday
noon luncheon, and three University
athletic events in the afternoon to
which the delegates will be admitted
free of charge.

The value of NYA workers as skilled

out yesterday by Paul Wiers, grad-

tion with his discussion of the highly
specialized statistical work being car-
ried on under his direction in the lab-
oratory in Haven Hall.
The mechanical work which has
anteceded the task of sorting thou-

One student working at a machine

than is obtained with ordinary com--

used largely in connection with two
NYA-sponsored projects, the study of
juvenile delinquency and an analysis
of the diffusion of cultural traits in
all the states of the nation. The
purpose of the former, according to
Wiers, is the comparison of the per-

The first of a type of "fool proof"

planes are under construction and
will be purchased by the government
to be used by department inspectors.
The ship is a monoplane with the

less than 100 feet.
The small landing space is made
possible by the steep angle at which
the plane is able to glide to a landing
