Haiti Emperor
Letters Display Negro As
'An Enlightened, Spirited
Leader Of People'
By ARTHUR MILLER,
During his studies in London where
he finished his book, "Thomas Clark-
son, the Friend of Slaves," Prof. Earl
L. Griggs of the English department
discovered a long correspondence be-
tween Clarkson, abolitionist leader
in 19th century England, and Henry
Christophe, then the Negro emperor
of Haiti, he disclosed yesterday.
According to Professor Griggs,
these letters prove that Christophe
was not merely the savage the civ-
ilized world took him to be, but "an
enlightened, noble-spirited leader of
,Negro peoples." He tried to educate
his people and to institute better so-
cial conditions and to elevate the sta-
tus of the slave.
The book, which is a study of the
English abolitionist movement, de-
manded that not only manuscripts
contained in the British Museum be
examined, but also those in the pos-
session of private collections. The
bbok may be of concern to American
scholars because Clarkson endeavored
to spread the doctrine of abolition in
America after 1833 when England
emancipated her serfs. In the future,
Professor Griggs said, he hopes to
write a treatment of the effects of
slavery and abolition on literature.

Wheeler Gives Talk On German
Confederation In Radio Address

Traces
To

Modern
Conflict

Austria
Between

Prussian States

The dissolution of the German
Confederation was the topic of a
speech by Prof. Benjamin W. Wheel-
er, of the history department, over
the University Broadcasting Service
yesterday.
Portraying the breakup of the con-
federation as the result of a conflict
between Austria and Prussia, under
the leadership of Bismark, Professor
Wheeler traced the existence of today
of "the little, German speaking, pov-
erty stricken, strife torn Austrian
republic" to the failure of "German-
Prussia and German Austria to dis-
cover a means of living together with-
in the bonds of national union."
The rivalry between the two prin-
cipal members of the confederation,
Professor Wheeler pointed out, was
brought to a head in a dispute over
two bits of territory which were tak-
en from the king of Denmark.
Although Bismarck maintained a
policy of friendship to Austria, his
policy of establishing Prussia's claim
to a position as a first rate European
power brought her into conflict with

Present Carnival
The winter carnival sponsored by
the Forestry Club, may be postponed
this year, it was announced yesterday
by Prof. Shirley Allen of the forestry
school.
The carnival, usually held on
Washington's birthday, may be put
off this year, Professor Allen said, due
to the state of the weather.

that country, whose control over the
confederation he was disputing, Pro-
fessor Wheeler continued.
Estrangement was followed by war,
the speaker said, and ended finally in
the "foundation of the German Em-
pire of 1871." "To establish the na-
tional state it had been necessary to
divide a people, and to bring to an
unsuccessful conclusion a great ex-
periment in federative organization."
