Of The DAY
(By The Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6.-A)-In
the midst of speculation about im-
portant alterations in the Social Se-
curity Act by the new Congress, the
government practically completed ar-
rangements todayto begin the listing
of old age pension accounts for 26,-
000,000 workers ten days hence.
Such resions as may be sought by
the Administration are not expected
to afenct the fundamental purposes
of the law. Announcing that 45,000
postoffilces would -soon distribute
forms both to employers and em-
ployes to set up the gigantic records
necessary, the Security Board gave no
inkling of possible changes.
Most discussion of the law has
centeredson the provision for an ul-
timate reserve fund of $47,000,000-
000, and whether some exception al-
lowances might be made for firms
with private pension plans. Also,
American Federation "of Labor lead-
ers are planning an attempt to sup-
plant the tax on workers' wages with
one whereby the employer would bear
the whole financing burden. As the
law stands, both pay equally for the
old age pensions.
Fish Calls For
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6..()-A
new call for a reorganization of the
Republican Party came today from
Rep. Hamilton Fish (Rep., N.Y.), who
said "thehealthiest thing that could
happen" would be "a slight epidemic
of resignations" from places high in
the party organization h
At the same time, he urged him
narty to help Preiident Roosevelt put
the unemployed to work.
Terming the resignation of Melvin
C. Eaton, New York Republican State
chairman, "A fine example," Fish
asked especially for the resignations
of the two Natioal Committee mem-
bers from New York. They are
Charles D. Hilles and Mrs. Ruth
Fish's battle for a reorganization of
the party began before the national
conventions of this year. In the pre-
convention campaign, he linked him-
self with Senator Borah of Idaho in
an effort to bring about changes in
the Party leadership and attitude.
Murphy Decides Not
To Return To Manilan n
DETROIT, Nov. 6.(MP-Frank
Murphy, United States High Com-
missioner to the Philippines who was
elected governor of Michigan Tues-
day, said tonight that he has decided
definitely not to return to Manila
before resigning preparatory to his
inauguration Jan. 1.
He had been considering an air-
plane trip to the Islands to wind up
his affairs there, but abandoned the
idea because of the pressure of other
duties in the less than two months
that remain while he continues to
hold his Fderal post.
Instead, he will go to Washington
after taking a two-week vacation,
which he hopes to commence tomor-
row, and prepare to surrender the in-
sular business to his successor, to be
named by President Roosevelt.
Then he will return to Michigan to
lay plans for his administration of
state affairs including .appointments
to various positions he will have to
fill at the capitol.
Murphy said the only appointment
he has settled upon is that of Norman
C. Hill, former Sault Ste. Marie pub-
lisher, to be his secretary. Hill, who
was secretary to Murphy when the
governor-elect was mayor of Detroit,
now is administrative assistant to
the Philippine High Commissioner
and is in Manila.

Less Outside Activities,
Co-Education In Home
Colleges, They Say
By ROBERT MITCHELL
Finding that American students
have a great variety of outside in-
terests and activities, John Alexander,;
of the University of Melbourne, Aus-
tralia, and Moni Sen, of St. Stephensl
College, Delhi, India, yesterday de-1
scribed college life in 'America as be-1
ing in many ways different from that
of their countries.
"Outside activities and interests,"
Alexander said, "seem to be almost as
important a part of college life to
American students as their - actual
class-room work. Australian univer-
sities are much like those of Eng-
land. They are made up of a series
of colleges, all teaching much the
same things, and we live in dorms and4
private homes. We have no frater-i
nities as you have here.
"Any organizations corresponding
to the Union or The Daily are much
smaller and less important. As for
varsity sports, universities in Aus-
tralia are so far apart that an inter-
university games becomes a holiday
affair, instead of only having week-
end importance. Most of our sportsl
are among the colleges of our uni-!
Senpointed out the differences
of co-education in cur universities.
"In India," he pointed out, "co-
education is a very recent thing and
is not nearly as large a movement
as here. Consequently, we do not
have such things as 'dates.' It
wouldn't do any good in our country
anyway. Here you are free to marry
anybody, but in India you must marry
a girl of your own social class."
Both students stated that the sub-
jects taught in American universities
were of a much more technical and
practical nature than the cultural
studies of English colleges, but Alex-1
ander added that a demand for these)
practical courses was growing in Aus-
Student Christian work in the
United States, while well organized,
the two students observed, is taking
probably more of a laissez-faire at-
titude in its work than that of other
countries. They praised the work of
the German student Christian group
for its continued activity in spite of
opposition by the government. In1
India the group is backing a move-
ment for Indian socialismand polit-
ical freedom to some degree. In
other Asiatic countries it has been
successful in maintaining a fine fel-
lowship among its members despite
unpleasant political relationships cre-
ated by the Chinese-Japanese situa-
tion. The movement in America, they
said, seemed to be manifesting it-
self in social projects and other prob-
lems, while the theological philosophy
-aspect was fast dying out.
Sen and Alexander, members of the
student Christian associations of
their own countries, are on their way
to an international student Chris-
tian meeting sponsored every four
years by the British Isles Student
Christian Association. Members of
the meeting are chosen from univer-
sities and colleges over the entire
British empire and have their way
paid to the meeting.
