and believes that the enjoyment is
not a direct one but one that comes
from more abstract impulses.
Hofstatter also points out that
women smoke because it offers an
opportunity for theatrical and easily

movements and positions. He thinks
that women make more studious mo-

cedure in smoking than men; the.
pleasures they get from the habit

Crime Commission Asks
For A University Clinic
The establishment of a "master
-clinic" in the University to furnish
psychiatric aid to schools and juve-
nile courts was recommended in a
biennial report to the Legislature by
the State Crime Commission.
The Commission further recom-
mended that the Legislature arm law
enforcement officers with new legal
weapons and finance studies of prob-
lem children. It suggested that ad-
ditional grants of State aid be made'
to schools providing child guidance
clinics. Experimentation in public
school guidance clinics is scheduled,

Of Education, University.
Cooperate In Progran
The program for training muni-
cipal 6fficials was wholeheartedly'
greeted and cooperation assured by
fire chiefs from southeastern Michi-
gan when addressed by James W.
Parry, director of the program, mak-
ing his initial step in the campaign.
The program is being conducted
through the combined efforts of the
University of Michigan, the Michigan
Municipal League, and the Michigan
Board of Vocational Education.
Bliven Takes Part
I Bull Session'
(Continued from Page 1)
"I suggested at the time," he said,,
"that the best settlement of the dis-I
pute would be through a secret poll
of the faculty, impartially conducted.
The control of educational policies of
a university should be in the hands
of the faculty."
Mr. Bliven is planning to visit
Flint and Lansing today in connec-
tion with the United Automobile
Workers' strike. "We seem to be
learning in this country," he said
"what Great Britain learned 40 years
ago: that the only real settlement of
these disputes rests in strong union
organization. These fears that unions
may dictate business policies-or
even, in the case of newspapers, may
dictate editoria 1 policies - s e e m
groundless and have, in fact, in Great
Britain been proven by practice
groundless." -
Speaking Of War ... .
With reference to questions of neu-
trality, Mr. -Bliven declared that the
primary objective of the United
States ought to be to remain out of
war. "In a war there is no democ-
racy. If we enter, we defeat that
which we seek to save. The hope
of collective security does not seem
possible of realization until the
League becomes something other
than an organization for the preser-
vation of the status quo, for French
diplomatic subjugation of Germany.
In the meantime, I favor the most
drastic measures possible for the
preservation of the United States
against potential war situations. In
the event of the outbreak of war, tie
up the merchant marine entirely.
Stop all commerce with the bellig-
erents-with anyone-save on a 'cash
and carry' basis. This may involve
government payment of the equiv-
alent of lost profits to the merchant
marine and a planned economy, but

"This program we are going to
carry out is no catch-or-can nor flash
in the pan plan, but rather a perm-
anent method for a unified way in
which all our public officials can be
aided," Mr. Parry said.
The reason for starting the pro-
gram with the firemen of the state,
Mr. Parry said, is that they are the
largest group of municipal servants,
are well organized and are one of
the most important forces that the
cities must have.
Yesterday's speech in the Union
was the first that Mr. Parry has given
before a group representing a large
number of municipal officials. Chiefs
of fire departments from cities in
southeastern Michigan were present
at the meeting.
"Ten years ago," Mr. Parry said,
"Michigan stood at the top of the
list in all phases of fire fighting but
it has slumped decidedly in recent
years." At the national convention
of fire department officials in Ten-
nessee, which Mr. Parry attended last
week, many people asked him what
had happened to Michigan, he said.
"We shall try to put Michigan
again in the forefront," Mr. Parry
The establishment of definite ob-
jectives and a means of measuring
progress toward such objectives were
stressed as the most important im-
mediate tasks of the training pro-
Mr. Parry asked for the coopera-
tion and the advice of the chiefs in'
the carrying out of the program
the profits are not very great, and a
planned economy would not be an
obstacle from my point of view."
... And Of CollectivismI
Speaking of planned economy, Mr.
Bliven pointed out at various times
the progress which we are making
in that direction. "Can a planned
econony provide for the allocation
of natural resources as well as a com-
petitive market? I don't know; but
the only time when that question has
to be met completely is in u situation
where there has been a complete
breakdown, and there the experiment
is worth trying.
"Otherwise, we approach the econ-
omy by small ameliorative steps, test-
ing as we go. We have already ac-
complished much in that direction,
and it is generally true that revolu-
tions have taken place before they
are officially recognized. In the re-
action against revolutions which have
already taken place rests the vio-

elaboration of this theme the work
