City Entered In
National Contest
In Auto Safety
Morrison Is Chairman Of
Traffic Committee For
Current Contest

Heads Investigation

Ann Arbor has entered the Na-
tional Traffic Safety Contest for 1936,
it was announced yesterday by Prof.
Roger L. Morrison of the engineering
college, who received confirmation
of the city's enrollment from the
National Safety Council in Chicago.
The -entry form was signed by
Mayor Robert A. Campbell, who des-
ignated Professor Morrison chairman
of the traffic committee of the City
Council, to handle all local details
and to act as liaison between Ann
Arbor and the National Contest Com-
mittee in Chicago.
A description of the contest, which
parallels the 1935 contest in which
more than 800 cities and 33 states
participated, was given by Professor
Morrison. The cities taking part are
divided into six population groups,
Ann Arbor being in Group Five, hav-
ing a population ranging from 25,-
000 to 50,000.
Bronze Plaque Awarded
A handsome bronze plaque is
awarded the winner in each division,
and certificates will be given to
winners of second and third places in
each division.
Added impetus is given to the con-
test this year, Professor Morrison
pointed out, due to the launching of
the National Safety Council's five
year campaign to slash traffic acci-
dent fatalities 35 per cent by 1941 aid
to save 38,000 lives. In this connec-
tion, the year's death rate and the
reduction over previous records in the
cities in the safety contest will count
for 50 out of the total 100 points
in the grading schedule.
Accident reports are to be sub-
mitted each month to the contest
committee, and a maximum of 25
points may be won by cities making
the highest improvements in the
quality of traffic engineering and law
Asks Cooperation
xA plea for the cooperation of every
Ann Arbor citizen in helping the
city win the contest was voiced by
Professor Morrison. "We cannot pos-
sibly make a showing through the ef-
forts of a few mn alone," he said.
"We will make every effort to hold;
up our end and I know we can count
on all local organizations, as well as
citizens, to do their part.1
"The reduction of traffic accident,
however, is the duty and responsi-
bility of every man, woman and child
in Ann Arbor. One thoughtless or
careless act on the part of a driver
or a pedestrian may ruin an over-
wise perfect record. A vast majority
of our citizens are careful and law-
abiding, but a few drive in such a
way that they are likely to cause an
accident at any time.
"These few will jeopardize our
chances of winning this contest, un-
less, as I hope, they change their
driving habits as a matter of civic
duty," Professor Morrison concluded.

In Worl l" I'olics Writing in the Nov. 10, 1934, issue
of the Literary Digest magazine, in
"Americans are immutably paci- an article entitled "Washington Views
fistic, apathetic as to international a Troubled World," Mr. Bell pointed
rights and interests, too lazy, if not to the above and other impressions

too proud, to fight.
"The United States appears to be

These are opinions of America
commonly held by informal groups
abroad, according to Edward Price
Bell, who has spent nearly 30 years
in European and Asiatic countries
interviewing the leaders of these na-
tions and observing the customs,
thoughts and prevailing impressions
of their peopels.
Mr. Bell will speak at 8:15 p.m. to-
morrow in Hill Auditorium on the

Students holding a bachelor's de-
gree and present seniors are eligible
to appointment subject to receipt of
a degree by June 30, 1936, according
to Professor Brown. Other require-
ments for eligibility are that the stu-
dent must have a high scholastic
szanding, must have outstanding
qualities of character, must have
demonstrated an interest in public
affairs, must be a citizen of the Unit-
ed States, must have good health, and

of foreign nations as factors weak-
eing the diplomatic position and the
prestige of this country.
Contributing to these impressions,
according to Mr. Bell, are the "vulgar
and vacuous movingpictures (con-
demned by every knowing moan of
decency), the exaggerated reports of
crime, scandal and corruption in this
i country and deliberate anti-Ameri-
can propaganda in both hemis-
None of these conditions, Mr. Bell
believes, "escapes the notice or fails
to excite the concern of responsible
men in Washington, and all conduce
to a state of foreign opinion under-
lying the wisdom of seeing to it that
the Republic has ample defensive
fighting strength."
Interpreting official Washington's
views as to this armament question
Mr. Bell stated, "It suspects that to
arm certain powers in the world to-
day is to arm the possibility of ag-
gression, while it thinks it knows that
to arm America is to arm the cer-
tainty of non-aggression. Washing-
ton looks with utter disfavor upon
the idea of allowing a reduction in
America's relative fighting strength."
Mr. Bell has actively interested
himself in the problem of interna-
tional peace, and last year he was
backed strongly as a candidate for
the Nobel Peace Prize, according to
Who's Who. Tickets for the lecture,
price at'50 cents,tmay be obtained
at Wahr's State street bookstore or
