Considered By Committee
WASHINGTON, Jan. 8.-UP)-An
inquiry into complaints by the United
Automobile Workers that the Gen-
eral Motors Company has hired pro-
fessional strike-breakers is being
"seriously considered by the Senate
committee appointed to investigate
civil liberties violations.
Disclosing this today, committee
investigators indicated company of-

Report Large Car
Sale Before Strike
NEW YORK, Jan. 8.-(P)--Heavy
shipments of cars to dealers in De-
cember, before strikes crippled op-
erations, were shown today to have
helped lift world sales of General
Motors Corp. in 1936 to a new record
above 2,000,000 cars.
December sales to dealers in the
United States and abroad were the
largest for any month in the cor--
poration's history at 239,114, its
monthly report revealed. This com-
pared with 191,720 in November, and
185,698 in December, 1935.
Removal Of Frank
(Continued from Page 1)
charges of incompetency there will be
no question in anyone's minds as to
the truth of the charges. It is a sad
commentary on American culture
that everyone immediately suspects
political motives in a situation such
ipficult For Outsider To Judge
Professor Nelson feels that it is
very difficult for an outsider to judge
whether the charges of incompetency
are true or not. "If the removal of
Frank was caused by political con-
sideration, as is indicated by the eight
to seven vote, it is regrettable. The
firing by a liberal body of a com-
paratively conservative educator is
just as much to be deplored as the
removal by a conservative board of a
liberal one," Professor Nelson said.
"It would appear that party pol-
itics definitely entered the dismissal
of President Frank," Prof. Preston
W. Slosson of the history department
said, "and this presents a situation
just as serious as if the issue of aca-
demic freedom had been involved."
The complaints registered against
Frank were felt to be very general by
Professor Slosson. "There is no ques-
tion that Governor LaFollette had the
right to consult with the regents, but
it nevertheless was an unwise move,
since it gave the whole affair an at-
mosphere of politics," he said.
It is quite certain that the basic
issue involved in the case was not
academic freedom, Prof. John F.
Shepherd of the psychology depart-
ment said. Professor Shepherd felt,
as did Professor Nelson, that it is
difficult for one not well acquainted
with the Wisconsin situation to de-
termine just whether Frank was a
competent administrator or not.
"It is very likely," Professor Shep-
herd added, "that political consider-
ations were the reasons for Frank's
Former 2 P.NM Programs

The programs which formerly went I
on the air at 2 p.m. will thereafter be
presented at 2:15 p.m. The follow-
ing programs will be given next week,
with the broadcast times changed ac-
cording to the new schedule:
Sunday, from 9 to 9:30 'a.m., Prof.
Joseph E. Maddy, of the School of
Music, will head the class in the1
singing of popular hymns. From
12:45 to 1:15 p.m. Professor Maddy

Pt-onunciation Class Continues
Professor Maddy will also have
charge of the program to be given
Monday from 2:15 to 2:45 p.m. He

Wednesday Prof. Gail E. Dens-
more of the spee9h department will
continue his class in the instruction
of diction and pronunciation. Thus
far more than 2,000 requests for
word lists used by the class have been'
received at Morris Hall, the broad-
casting station. The program time
remains the same at 2:15 p.m.
The Thursday program is sched-

Friday Program Unchanged
The Friday program remains un-
The Saturday programs are also
unchanged. From 10 to 10:15 a.m.,
the class in the teaching of mathe-
matics will go on the air. From 10:15
to 10:30 a.m., skits of campus life will
be presented by the students in
broadcasting speech courses. From
5:30 to 5:45 p.m., Dr. Fred J. Hodges,
professor of roentgenology, is sched-
uled to speak on the "Treatment of
Cancer and Radiant Energy."

Balzac And Proust Said
To Be Modern Founders
The University Lecture Series yes-
terday presented Prof. Fernand Bal-
densperger, professor of compara-
tive literature at Harvard University,
who spoke on the subject "Une Crise
du Roman--Balzac ou Proust."
"Balzac and Proust have as a point
of coincidence," the speaker said,
"the fact that both died at the age
of 51 after a comparatively short
period of production; however, here
the similarity ends abruptly." Pro-
fessor Baldensperger then went on
to portray the essential differences
between the founders of the two
chools of French literature.
"Balzac is happy when dealing
with space," he said. A ]Salzac novel
is one based on an entirely rational
foundation. It is constructed layer
upon layer and can be aptly com-
pared to a stone building. Balzac
is an author who writes of reality,
th4 professor declared, of people as he
actually sees them. His work, then,
might be termed more objective.
"Proust on the other hand," Pro-
fessor Baldenspet'ger said "is not
conecinied in the slightest with space.
To him time is the al-important
cencep tion." Proust tried constantly,
to get a hold of this fundamnental
idea" and his woik is saturated with
these attempts. Stricken with asth-
ma, nervous, almost a neIurotic,
Proust was well qualified' to concern
himself with the inner mind of the
individual, the speaker said. The
character of Proust's work was com-
pared in msic to that of Debussey,
while Balzac was said to approach
Wagner in the tone of his work. '
In summary Professor Balden-
sperger declared the crises of the
modern French novel has been
reached. The question is whether it
will follow the Balzac or the Proust
school. Formerly completely under
the sway of Balzac the recent trend
has been decidedly toward Proust. "It
is possible," he concluded "that a
synthesis of the two types will be
effectedsin which a new novel style

These splendid air views show in detail the drama enacted off Sandy honk when the government of
the United States-made a futile effort to halt shipment of $2,700,000 worth of planes and war materials
to the Spanish loyalists. Top, the freighter, Mar Can tabrico, is shown being stopped by the coast guard

Large Scale Flood Prevention
Not Practical Today, King Says
I Use Of Storage Reservoirs
Not Feasible Because
Of Costs, He Says
Prevention of spring floods in the
river valleys of this country on a
large scale is at the present time im-
practical, Prof. H. W. King of the
hydraulic engineering departmentI
declared yesterday, basing his belief1
on previous projects of this nature.,
There is an exaggerated opinion,
Professor King declared, in the minds
of most people relative to the amount
of flood regulation that is feasible
with storage reservoirs. Such reg-
ulation, he explained, is dependent
upon the availability of suitable res-
ervoir sites, and usually those avail-
able that will provide storage at any
reasonable cost are not of sufficient
capacity to influence materially the
enormous volume of water that flows
down our larger streams during
floods. On small streams where val-
uable property is to be protected, ex-
cessive cost of storage may in some
instances be justified, he continued:
Such was the case, he pointed out, on
the Miami river in Ohio when five
large reservoirs were built to protect
the cities of Dayton and Hamilton
and the remainder of the small Mi-
Tennessee Valley Typical
Conditions in the Tennesseee val-
ley, Professor King declared, are typ-
ical of those in which the reduction
of the flood peak is highly desirable*
but not practical. Flood control on
the Tennessee river has up to the
present time received only minor con-
sideration, he said. Because of the
emphasis placed on power develop-,
ment and navigation, he explained,
the effect of the present program of
structures on flood flows is more or,
less incidental. It is unfortunate
that these ends conflict, he said. In
order that storage capacity be avail-
able to receive a flood, which may oc-
cur at almost any time, the reservoir
should be empty to receive it; then
after the flood has passed, it should
be reemptied as soon as this can be
done safely in order to be ready for
the next flood, he said.
Maximum Control Feasible
It is however, Professor King con-
tinued, the plan of the Tennesseee
River Valley Authority, to operate
the plants so as to give the maximum
flood control that is feasible without
too great interference with the out-
put of power. The pools, he pointed
out, will be kept at a comparatively
low level in the spring when floods
are most likely to occur and thus
some of the flood waters will be held
back temporarily.bAlso the upper
levels of the pool back of the Norris
dam will be kept below the crest of
the spillway so that there will al-
ways be available some storage for
flood waters, he said.
Followed By Chang
(Continued from Page 1)
a national crisis is still based upon
Confucianism. It may be summar-
ized by the expression, 'Activity with-
out aggression.' This is the policy
Chiang has folowed. Its success
may be seen in the consolidation of
the power of Nanking, the extension
of its power over the rest of China,
and by the retrocession of some of
the foreign concessions since Chi-
"The young marshal apparently
became restive," Dr. Stanton said,
"and felt that he was too overshad-
owed by Chiang, and so desired to
attract attention and accelerate the
pace of events by creating a national

The class is the latest of a series
of projects for students of the cam-
pus that has been undertaken this
year by the S.C.A. and is mainly for'
the purpose of giving any student
who wishes it, free instruction in
Gregg shorthand for use in taking
lecture notes or in future business
cases. The course will last eight
weeks, meeting each Saturday at 11
a.m.. Later, if enough students are
interested, there may be a second,
advanced class. Walter A. Luszki,
'37, is in charge.
Besides the fact that there will be
no registration fee for the class, ar-
rangements have been made with the
library for the reservation of refer-
ence books, so that students will not
have to buy their own books unless
they want to, Luszki announced yes-

asylum for two reasons. First be-

men and a large personal fortune,
and second, because Manchuria is

They used their combined forces to
conduct anti-communism activities,
