Of The DAY
(By The Associated Press)
Penal Reform Bill
Nears Completion
LANSING, Jan. 6.-()-A bill em-
bodying Gov. Frank Murphy's penal
reform study commission's recom-
mendations and intended for im-
mediate submission to the legislature
neared completion today.
Hilmer Gellein, newly appointed
parole commissioner and a member
of the commission, declared the
measure, if adopted, would take pa-
roles out of politics and consolidate
prison management.
Mattson Case A pproaches
Breaking Point
TACOMA, Wash., Jan. 6.-(/P)-A
crisis appeared imminent tonight in
the kidnaping of Charles Mattson,
10, with the probability negotiations
soon would be completed with his
abductor and the $28,000 or more
demanded ransom paid.
Dr. W. W. Mattson, the boy's fath-
er, issued an urgent plea for privacy
for the last dramatic act intended
to bring about the release of the
smiling, freckled boy who was seized
10 days ago.
Canpus Flu Under
Control,_Says Bell
(Continued from Page 1)
Bell said. "For the person who is ex-
posed to a cold there seems to be
little or no immunity."
"University health authorities take
great pride in the fact that the ma-
jority of students know how to take
care of themselves when they get a
cold. The most intelligent students
do not go to their clases when they
have a cold. They realize the value
of taking care of their own health,
tand of protecting other students." she
Most of the present cases of in-
fluenza in the Health Service started
at home during the holidays, although
there are a few. which have started
since the beginning of classes, Mon-
"There are no student cases of
pneumonia at present in the Health
Service or in the University Hospi-
tal," she declared, "even though all
of the beds are filled in the Health
Service. A.rumor tha all of the beds
- or student influenza patients at the
University Hospital were filled, and
that they were being removed to St.
" Joseph's Hospital was disproved by
University Hospital authorities.
All of the men's and women's gym
classes as well as all medical stu-
dents will be given special instruc-
tion in the care of colds, Dr. Bell

The second session of the Inter-

Dr. Yuen Z. Chang, .visiting lec-
turer in English, Rabbi Bernard Hel-
ler. director of H-illel Foundation, and
Prof. Preston W. Slosson, of the his-
tory department, will give the view-
points of the Confusians, Jews and
Christians respectively with reference
to the general question of the par-
adox which man, submerged in the
practical aspects of life, faces as he
views the high ethical standard which
is set before him and by which, his
religion says, he is judged by his
Some of the practical issues which
will be discussed by the speakers are
as follows: The Ten Commandments
and the Modern Business Man; the
Serman on the Mount in Our Amer-
ican Life-Is the Absolute Possible?;
If Man Adopts the Relative Attitude,
What Becomes of the Ideal?
The talks scheduled for the Sym-
posium will be informal and students
and faculty members will join in the
discussion following the speeches.
The purpose of the Symposium is
to lay before the audience composed
of representatives of the major re-

ciples of their religions in regard to
practical problems of life, according
to Dr. Edward W. Blakeman, coun-
selor in religious education.
