Slosson Speaks
Trends of our times are the grow-
ing power of executive over legisla-
tive government, socialistic, collec-
tive and government control of in-
dustry, intensification of nationalism,
feminism, and scientific medicine,
Prof. Preston Slosson of the history
department told the opening session
of the Club yesterday at the League.
Commenting on the growing pow-
er of the executive branch of gov-
ernment, he stated, "As long as the
press is free, opposition parties can
"riticize, elections are held, and con-
stitutional and legal precedent is fol-
lowed, no dictatorship will take place
even if all power goes to the executive.
More Than 350 Attend
More than 350 Schoolmasters, at-
tending the annual reception and
banquet at the Union last night,
heard Dr. Frederick B. Fisher of the
Methodist Episcopal Church of De-
troit ask that the Americans be op-
nmirided in dealing with Commun-
ism, Fascism and all the other phil-
osophies of -Europe
"The present idea in America is
that we defend ourselves from for-
eign influence-we feel that we
should save ourselves," he complained.
"We should not have a defense
against the philosophies of others.
We must remember that we originally
sprang from the stock of Europe."
Nearly 700 high-school students
from all over this section of the State
will convene at 10 a.m. today at
University High School to cooperate
in 31 class demonstrations which are
being sponsored by the Club "to
show how the more outstanding
teachers of the State conduct their
classes," according to Prof. Raleigh
Schorling; member of the School of
Education and director of the demon-
"To my 1knowledge, no similar dem-
onstrations have ever before been
undertaken by any group," Profes-
sor Schorling said.

2 50 Delegates
To Attend 10th

Moel Lea ne
More than 250 delegates repre-
senting 20 colleges and universities
in Michigan will attend the 10th an-
nual Model Assembly of the League
of Nations here May 7 and 8, it was
announced yesterday by Gardner
Ackley, Grad., Secretary-General 01

The Assembly will convene on Fri-
day and Saturday, with the plenar3
sessions in the First Congregational
Church and the committee meetings
in the League. The First Congrega-
tional Church has been selected for
the Assembly, Ackley said, because its
auditorium more closely resembles the
one in which the League Assembly
meets than any other in Ann Arbor,
Due to the current interest in the
labor situation, an innovation has
been inaugurated in this year's Mode
Assembly with the inclusion ofa
Model Session of the Internationa

Curtailment Of Neutral Rights
Increases Duties, Says Preuss

Enforcement O bligation
Added To By Legislation,
He Says In Washington
WASHINGTON, April 30.-(Spe-
:ial to The Daily)-Increased govern-
nental responsibilities have been
placed upon the United States by the
'urtailment of neutral rights, Prof.I
awrence Preuss of the pclitical sci-!
once department said here today.
Professor Preuss, speaking before
the 31st annual convention of the
American Society of International
Law, pointed out that the United
States, by limiting its rights as neu-
)ral to private trade with belligerents,
also forced upon the government the
necessity of taking greater precau-
tions to see that the neutrality legis-
lation is properly and impartially
carried out.
"This government is now com-
mitted to a policy of self-limitation of
neutral rights through a system of
governmental control, over private
trade and financial relations with
belligerents," Professor Preuss said.
"It is apparent that such govern-
mental intervention has far-reaching
effects u pon neutraltobligations," he
continued, "and that the duties of
impartiality and prevention are
thereby extended to the fields of ac-
tivity which the government now for
the first time undertakes to control."
Turkish Student
Missing Si nc e
pring VacatDio
Landlady Says Sazi Left
For Chicago, But Efforts
To Find Him Are Futile
Police authorities were asked yes-
terday by University officials to aid
in the search for Serdar Sazi, 33-
year-old graduate student from Sivas,
Turkey, who hasbeen missing from
his rooming house at 311 Thompson
St., since the beginning of Spring
Vacation, April 9.
Sazi told his landlady that he was
going to Chhiago to spend the vaca-
tion. He has not peen heard from
since. Effori'ts"y Dean Joseph A. Bur-
sley, Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, coun-
selor to foreign students, and the
Turkish consulate in New York to
locate him have proved unsuccessful.
Sazi did not tell his landlady whom
he planned to visit in'Chicago. He
has not communicated .with anyone
since his disappearance. It was be-
lieved at first that he was delayed
in his return. The offices of the
Dean and the Counselor to Foreign
Students have investigated numerous
clues without success.
Sazi, a student in the School of
Education, came here last fall on a
one-year scholarship of the Turkish
government. He was a graduate of
the training school for teachers at
Ankora, Turkey, and was to return to
Turkey at the end of the present se-
mester to resume teaching duties.

Despite the many arguments re-
garding the neutrality policy of the
United States, Professor Preuss said,
the necessity for domestic legislation
curtailing the right of American cit-
izens to extend material aid to bel-
ligerents is pretty well agreed upon.
"This policy is basic in the legisla-
tion of 1935, 1936 and 1937," he said.
"The requirements of our neutrality
laws are now well in advance of those
of the international laws of neutral-
ity," he added.
Althoughdthere existed no inter-
national obligation to enact such leg-
islation, Professor Preuss said, once
enacted, however, "it greatly en-
larges the sphere of neutral duties.

ammunition, and implements of war

1,000 Will Attend First In
Program To Acquaint
Pupils WithUniversity
More than 1,000 high school stu
dents will get their first glimpse of
the campus today when they assemble
at the University's invitation in the
first of what is expected to be an an-
nual University Day.
Special events have been planned
for them during the entire day. There
will be sports demonstrations, schol-
arship conferences, science demon-
strations and addresses by University
The _ event is not an attempt to
publicizing the University to attract
freshmen on campus, Ira M. Smith,
registrar, explained yesterday. "It
was planned by the Union Executive
Council, and is being conducted by
FErederick V. Geib, '33F&C, in con-
junction with University officials,"
he said.
Pupils, arriving in groups, are ex-
pected from as far west as Grand
Rapids, as far north as Port Huron
'and from Detroit. The women will
assemble outside the League and the
men at the Union at 9 a.m. There
they will be assigned to student
guides from the men's Independent
society, the Woman's Assembly, the
SCA, the Women's Athletic Associa-
tion and the League.
"We are attempting to create a
more intimate relationship between
the residents of the state and their
state University. From telegrams
which have been coming in during
the last few days, I'm sure we will do
this," the Registrar stated,!
Among those who have consented
to cooperate are Mr. Smith, Dean Al-
fred H. Lovell of the Engineering Col-
lege, Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
School, Prof. Clare E. Griffin, di-
rector of the School of Business Ad-
ministration, Dean James B. Edmon-

More than 700 fraternity men are
expected to gather on the steps of
the General Library Sunday night,
May 16, to compete for three cups in
the second annual Interfraternity
Sing, according to George Cosper,
'37, president of the Council.

Bleachers will be erected in a semi-
circle in front of the steps for the
audience, Cosper said, and a public
amplifying system will be installed.
Each fraternity will be judged in the
contest for one fraternity song and
all of the houses will sing together
four Michigan songs, he said.
"It will be necessary," Cosper said,
"for all houses intending to enter the
Sing to know all the words to the
four songs, "'Tis of Michigan We

the "Yellow and Blue." Thethree
cups will be awarded. on the basis of
excellence of singing and we expect
to have three judges: one from De-

State Debating,
Won By Toila
Squad Holds Government
Ownership Of Electric
Utilities Impractical
4,500 Spectators
See Flint Defeated;
Ionia high school defeated Flint
Northern in a heated debate last
night to win the 20th annual state
debate championship before an au-
dience of 4,500 in Hill Auditorium.
The question was: Resolved, That
All Electrical Utilities Should Be
Governmentally Owned and Operat-
ed, .and Ionia upheld the negative.
Basing their main argument on the
impracticability of government own-,
ership, the Ionia team of Laurence
Read, Charles Wilder, and Paul Stew-
art, Jr., emphasized again and again
that government ownership would re-
sult in an annual loss of 940 million
Two To One Decision
Keith Norwalk, Jane Read, and
Charles Knutson of Flint Northern
made little attempt to refute this
negative charge placing their empha-
sis upon the' argument that Federal
ownership of the electric utilitiesI
would eliminate an undesirable con-r
centration of wealth and help to con-
serve the nation's natti l resources.
A two to one decision was returned
by the judges in choosing Ionia as
the victor. The judges were: Profs.
G. E. Densmore and Carl G. Brandt
of the University speech department
and Prof. V. A, Ketcham, chairman
of the speech department at Ohio
State University.
The debate marked the closing of

True Learning
Avoids Vanity,
Reeves Asserts
Convocation Speaker Says
Sicholarship Like Virtue
Is Own Reward
3,000 Hear Talk
In Hill Auditorium
Freedom from vanity is necessary
for the attainment of true learning,
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves of the political
science department told more than
3,000 persons including 800 honor stu-
dents, at the 14th annual Honors
Convocation yesterday in Hill Audi-
"The scholar is the thinking man
who by truth is set free, free from
unworthy ambition and popular prej-
udice," Professor Reeves said. "And
when free from vanity, he is truly
free, because he is no longer an ob-
stacle to himself."
Professor Reeves, who spoke on
"Scholarship - An Accomplishment
and a Profession," said that the "con-
cealment of our own, ignorance ac-
companied by an ostentatious display
of our own knowledge" has been vast-
ly multiplied as an obstacle to learn-
ing by means of our "modern ways."
"Millions now derive their political
convictions from a 'fireside chat'
which is neither a chat nor by the
fireside, but a new form of the thes-
pian art," he stated. "Overnight
there is such a demand for a period-
ical with no reading and all pictures
that great presses cannot supply it.
The standard of enjoyment is this
year's model.
"When Bacon cautions us as to
the concealment of our own ignor-
ance accompanied by an ostentatious,
display of our own knowledge, he hits

That was the frank comment of a
nigh school girl who visited the
University for the first time yester-
day with thousands of others for the
annual High School Day.
One high school boy described
Michigan students as being "peppy"
and another called them "congenial."
One girl, commenting on women's
clothes here said, "I'm wild about
the color schemes." Another ex-
pressed her admiration of the ankle
socks and the comfortable white sport
shoes worn by the majority of Mich-
igan women.
Some of the High School Day
guests were fascinated by the stu-
dent "atmosphere" at the Parrot. And
others, of a more intellectual nature,
were enthusiastic over the "Evolution
of Man" in the Anthropology Mu-.
seum. They applied the word "swell"
to everything.
