Hayden Talks
On Discontent
In Philippines
Slosson Advocates Party
Realignments For 1940;
Selling Talks At Meet
(Continued from Page 1)
sor Hayden foresees "dangers that
are obvious to all of us. For 10 years
the flag of the United States flies
there and we will be responsible for
any trouble they get into. For any
international trouble incited by the
Philippine government the United
States will be responsible."
Although the high-commissioner
of the Islands has no power to inter-
vene in insular affairs to the extent
of giving orders, Professor Hayden'
explained, the President has great
powers and is charged with great re-'
sponsibility. The high-commission-
er's use of his powers as adviser and
consultant may mean the failure or
the success of the Philippines, the
speaker said.
Policy Termed 'Worthwhile'
"If there is financial ruin after
1946 when the Philippines must pay
full duties, we've got to go in and
clean up, and there is a prospect of
having to face an army of three or
four hundred thousand men," Pro-
fessor Hayden said.
"We must have freedom of action
in 1946.
"Philippine independence repre-
sents the first step in a great Amer-
ican policy toward the Philippines.
We can't turn back. This national
policy is one worthwhile. It is worth
seeing through successfully.
"Here is an obligation we as-
sumed," he said. "We cannot walk
out and leave the Philippines a men-
ace to international peace."
Quezon Is Praised
In smmarizing the first year of
Philippine development under their
10-year program for self-government,
Professor Hayden had great praise
for President Quezon and High-Com-
missioner Frank Murphy, governor-
elect of Michigan.
The Islands' budget has been bal-
anced for three years, he said, and
the future of the Islands depends
largely on the rigid economy enforced
by High-Commissioner Murphy and
continued by President Quezon. Pres-
ident Quezon has made every effort
to improve the efficiency of govern-
ment, Professor Hayden said, and
was mainly responsible for the act
to hold a plebiscite on woman suf-
frage in the spring of next year.
Slossen Discusses Polls
Professor Slosson, who preceded
Professor Hayden on the morning
program, offered the Literary Digest
and Institute of Public Opinion polls
as indications of "the beginnings of
class lines in the United States."
He pointed out that the Digest
poll has shown a Landon victory,
while the Gallup poll, which boasts a
cross-section coverage of the Amer-
ican people, indicated a Roosevelt
Professor Slosson foresees the pos-]
sibility of a strong third-party move-
ment in 1940, but one that "will not
carry more than two or three states."
Third Party Prospect
Aiding the formation of a third
party, he calculated, would be the
difficulty in selecting a successor to
President Roosevelt as nominee of
the Democratic party. He held it
highly unlikely that Roosevelt would
seek a third term, and his "successor
might not enjoy the same confidence
of labor."
Professor Slosson advocated a re-
alignment of parties on some "living
issues, of which are plenty today."
He differentiated between the elec-
tions of the last forty years and prev-
ious elections in that since 1896,

Presidential elections have been land-
slides. This trend can be accounted
for in three ways, he said, coinci-
dence, restlessness of the American
people, or an independence in vot-
Labor Vote Was 'Solid'
The insignificant third-party is
traceable to the satisfaction most
radicals temporarily have with Pres-
ident Roosevelt, he said. "There 'is
no reason we can suppose that they
would have the same satisfaction
with his successor in 1940, however,"
he said, in predicting a possible third-
party movement in the next Presi-
dential election. "On the main fac-
tors, if not the main factor, in the
election is the solid vote labor gave
to Roosevelt. Always before the
labor vote has split considerably, but
this year it went almost solidly to the
"The American people are decided-
ly not in danger of dictatorship,"
Professor Slosson maintained. "As
long as we have a free press, judi-
cial review and popular election, we
will not have a dictatorship."
U.S. And England Contrasted
He contrasted the American em-
phasis, both in state And national
elections, on the executives t3 the
English and French custom of em-
phasis on legislators in elections, re-
marking that President Roosevelt
swept the Democratic party into of-
fice rather than being swept into
office by his party.

Purposes Of Psychiatrist Told
The psychiatrist, Dr. Selling said,
has a threefold purpose. He takes
preventive steps with youth who have
not been associated with crime; he
makes an effort to straighten out
prisoners mentally into good mem-
bers of society; and he helps to de-
termine whether a criminal is men-
tally capable of taking care of him-I
self in society.
"Our point today is not to deter-
mine whether a man is sane or in-
sane, but to study mental hygiene
in order that the individual may lead
as happy a life as possible, and not
to the detriment of the rest ,of so-
ciety," Dr. Selling said.
S"We have gotten to the state in
psychiatry where many minor and
some major diseases of the mind are
controllable. It has progressed to
the point of real treatment."
Mental Study Needed
"One out of every five sent to
prison and one out of every seven
brought to court should be sent to
the psychiatrist. And you must have1
experienced men to deal with these
In speaking of his Detroit cam-
pign to adopt more rigid drivers' li-
cense examinations, Dr. Selling said
that psychiatrists could eliminate
much of the hazard in driving by re-
fusing the feeble-minded licenses.
Mr. Reinecke was bluntly forceful
in his accusation of the newspaper's

"I find the public press can be
both a goodhand bad influence on
law enforcement. The bad influ-
ence comes from efforts to beat their
competitors, from publishing stories
designed to boost circulation.
Reporters Found Irritating
"It is irritating," Mr. Reinecke ex-
plained, "to have an enterprising re-
porter tell you what you're going to
do next."
He related instances when news-
papers had delayed capture of dan-
gerous criminals.
"I believe that if persons in the
United States who could read and
write had had the experiences I have
had, most of them would not believe

A description of a civilization callec
the greatest in the Americas beforE
the coming of Europeans was given
Thursday in a University lecture by
Dr. Sylvanus G. Morley of the Car-
negie Institution at Washington.
Architectural achievements of this
iviiization, the Mayan, were depict-
ea by means of colored slides. Some
of the buildings shown, which had
been uncovered and partially restored
by expeditions from the Institute and
from the Mexican government, in-
cluded the temple, observatory,
"sweat house," rules' dwelling and
game court at Chichen Itza.
The Mayans, Dr. Morley explained,
first set up what is known as the "old
empire" in south-western . Mexico,
Guatemala and northern Honduras,
then moved northward into the Yu-
catan area to estabilsh the "new em-
Restoration of a complete temple
from the fragments found on one site
was illustrated by Dr. Morley as typ-
ical of the work being done in the
area. In two cases, he mentioned,
temples built on large terraced pyra-
mids were found to cover older and
smaller temples within the pyramid.
In one of these uncovered temples,
he concluded, the most spectacular
find ever made in the excavations was
brought to light. This consisted of a
"jaguar throne," a figure of a jaguar
carved out of white limestone and
colored a brilliant vermilion hue.
