$400,000 Offer Is
To Meet Joe Louis
NEW YORK, Nov. 1l.--P)-Her-

Braddock to meet Joe Louis in a 12-
round bout in the Atlantic City Mu-
nicipal auditorium on Feb. 22 into

Taylor indicated the proposed At-

How We May
Understanding Of Forces
Working Against Peace
Necessary, He Says
Views on peace expressed by a pro-
fessor and a student, together with a
one-act play on the subject, consti-
tuted a new type of Armistice Day ob-
servation here yesterday.
"Two things are necessary to pre-
vent war," declared Prof. John F.'
Shepard of the psychology depart-
ment, at the meeting in Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre. "It is necessary for
every individual to understand the
forces at work against peace, and it
it necessary that we preserve our civil
liberties so that we can combat these
forces when the crisis comes."
Fred Warner Neal, '37, associate
editor of The Daily, asserted, in the
first of two speeches presented to an
audience estimated at more than 200
persons: "Men talk of economic rea-
sons for war when they mean eco-
nomic excuses. The danger today is,
as great as in 1914. The only hope
of the world appears to be that no
nation has the money with which to
wage war, and that may be one of
the blessings of poverty."
Dramatization of "The Terrible
Meek," directed by Sarah Pierce,
Grad., and acted by Karl Nelson,
Grad., Charles McGraw, Grad., and
Miss Pierce, depicted the blindness
that has led to war through the cen-
Professor Shepard, speaking "not
merely as a psychologist but as a cit-

of his people as a whole in mind. All

of war so that they can sell their
products." He contrasted the present
government of Russia and those of
western Europe. The Soviet Union is
the only country in the world which
seeks to build up its undeveloped peo-
ple, as is exampled by their interest'
in the inhabitants of southern Si-
beria. No other government does as'
