Student Guides
To Honor First
State Governor
Stevens T. Mason, Early
Champion Of Education,
Was Executive At 19
A special commemorative edition of
the freshman Orientation Period
guide in honor of Stevens Thomson
Mason, first Governor of Michigan,
will be issued to incoming first-year
students next September, according
to the Regitrar's Office.
Governor Mason was appointed
Secretary of the Territory of Michi-
gan by President Jackson in 1831, a
note on the inside of the cover of
the booklet indicates, at the age of 19.
When Michigan became a state in
1835 Mason was elected Governor,
an known in state history as the
"Boy Governor." When a bill which
would have resulted in the sacrifice of
the University lands at $1.25 an acre'
was passed by the Legislature, it was
prevented from becoming a law by
Governor Mason's veto.
An excerpt from a message to the
Legislature delivered by the Governor
Feb. 1, 1836 which is quoted in the
booklet says.in part: "Ours is said to
be a government founded on intelli-
gence and morality, and no political
axiom can be more beautifully true.
Here the right of all are equal, and
the people themselves are the primary
source of all power . . . Public opin-
ion directs the course which our gov-
ernment pursues; and so long as the
people are enlightened, that direction
will never be misgiven."
On the front cover of the pamph-
let is a portrait of Governor Mason,
and on the reverse a copy of a map
of the campus decorated with whim-
sical figures, drawn by Berta Knud-
son, '38A, on sale at a State Street

claimed that "if it was not for the
selfishness of Americans in refusing
helium to Germans, the whole thing
would not have happened."
He also mentioned Dorothy Thomp-
son, syndicate writer for the New
York Herald Tribune, "a member of
the U.S. Senate, and a general in the
U.S. Army air corps," as among those
"hiding behind the 'necessity' of keep-
ing the 'small supply' of helium .for
'our own use.'
He said helium was first discovered
in Texas during the World War, and
that it is found in certain natural
gases in quantity of about one and
one-half per cent.
Following its discovery an imme-
diate search all over the world for
Other sources of helium, by both the
Allies and the central powers, was
without success, Professor Pawlowski
Although helium was discovered
during the World War, he said that
the Zeppelin development was started,
40 years ago and that it was "orig-
inated and continued as dependenti
exclusively on the highly inflam-
mable hydrogen."

American labor's astonishing re-
sponse to the CIO unionization cam-
paign is evidence of an awakening
class consciousness, Prof. Robert C.
Angell of the sociology department
stated yesterday.
The recent automobile strikes and'
the Packard election particularly, in
which the UAWA piled up huge ma-
jority in a plant noted for generous
labor treatment show a new spirit,
forcing on to the old individualism,
intent on improving conditions as a
class, he continued.
Class Lines Not New
Class lines have been crystalliz-
ing for a long time but there has
been- a lag on the part of labor in
realizing this, he pointed out. Each
individual worker has refused to
classify himself with other workers
but has preferred to believe himself
an incipient capitalist. The great
American success story has been ac-
cepted, and labor has seen no rea-
son for organizing.
This attitude has been the great-'
est obstacle labor leaders have had
to face. Men refused to believe that
they would long remain laborers and
therefore had no interest in a labor
organization. And since they tend-
ed to identify themselves with the
capitalist class, many opposed labor
organizations on principle.
Labor Realizes Need
Recent events, however, have com-1
bined to undermine this dream. The
depression taught a hard lesson and
as labor emerged it had lost faith
in its ability to rise to the top. Roose-
velt's campaign, moreover, emphasiz-
ing the forgotten man and his need
for help strengthened this feeling.
With this new class consciousness
developing, the possibilities for an
American labor movement become
proportionately greater, said Profes-
sor tAngell. Ten years ago such a
response to a unionization campaign
would have been inconceivable. The
American Myth was too strong. Even
today labor's new orientation comes
Journalists Offered
Pho-toraphy Course
A non-credit course in news pho-
tography is now being offered by the
department of journalism to students
interested in picture-taking. Prof.
Wesley Maurer announced yesterday.
Professor Maurer pointed out that
many journalism schools are includ-
ing such courses in their curriculums
owing to the fact that newspapers
are beginning to demand that their
reporters have experience in taking
news pictures.
The first meeting was held, Profes-
sor Mauer said, Monday, May 3. The
next meeting is to be held 7 p.m., May
17 in Room E, Haven Hall. Professor
Maurer said he hopes to bring several
of the State's leading photographers
here to address the meetings.

as a distinct surprise to many people.
Should labor succeed in obtaining
substantial gains, such class con-
sciousness may well lead to a lessen-
ing of class hatreds and a realization
that all classes have a common pur-
pose, he said.
CIO Result Of Demand
In any event, repercussions of this,
conviction of unity may be great. It,
means that Lewis cannot be dis-
missed as a phenomenon who willt
wear off when his promises of higher
wages do not immediately material-
ize. It means the CIO drive for rec-1
ognition as the sole bargaining
agency was not mere opportunism but!
arose perhaps from an unconscious
demand, and indicated that Ameri-;
ca~n labor is prepared to take -a long-
range view and achieve benefits as a
Above all it may mean that labor
will come to a realization of its po-
sition, and will refuse because of its
lack of unity to remain a minority in,
both of the major political parties.
City Tax Increase
Planned By Council'
An increase in the city tax rate
and a tentative budget of $521,607
were set by the city council's budget
committee yesterday.
Municipal operation will take about
$370,214. The tax levy of seven and
one-half mills will bring in $278,607,
with the difference coming from other
sources. Debt service and special
funds will take $151,392.
The city council will consider im-
provements to the Main St. pavement
from Catherine St. to William St.,
the repaving of Arch St. from S. State
to White St., and S. State St. from
Hoover Ave. to Arch St. tonight.

Polish Lecturer
To Talk Today
On 'Statistics'
Dr. J. S. Neyman, noted Polish
professor of mathematics at Univer-
sity College, London, will deliver the
first in a series of three lectures on
"Theory of Statistics," at 4:15 p.m.
today in Room 3017 Angell Hall, Prof.'
Cecil C. Craig of the mathematics
department announced yesterday.
A graduate of the University of
Waraw, Dr. Neyman is conducting a
lectute tour in America. He has al-I
ready spoken at Princeton University,
the University of Chicago, the Univer-
sity of Iowa and Iowa State College.
His topic for the lectures, tentative-
ly announced as "Confidence Inter-
vals," is concerned with the possible
inferences one may make from the
sample to the population from which
it is drawn.
Dr. Neyman, member of the Polish
Mathematical Society, has beenI
teaching at the University of War-i
saw. He lectured on statistics at the
Central College of Agriculture in Po-I
land, and was head of the biometrics'
laboratory, Nencki Institute, from
1928 to 1935.
May 29 Is Announced
For Frosh Picnic Datel
The Frosh Picnic will be held Sat-
urday, May 29, on the Island, accord-
ing to an announcement made yes-
terday by Donald Barnes, chairman
of the Picnic Committee.c
Arrangements are being made to'
sell frankfurters and marshmallows
for roasting over the fires. The com-
plete details of the picnic willebe dis-
closed at a later date, Barnes said.

Committee on Registration Laws of

poems, the form of this Concerto of
Liszt's is rather free, and based on
the statement, repetition, a n d
transformation of only a few themes.
the decisive opening phrase given out
by the orchestra assumes the charac-
ter of a "motto theme," since it ap-
pears throughout the four general
sections of the work.
The Concerto was first performed
at Weimar in 1855, with Liszt playing'
and Hector Berlioz conducting. The
work was not immediately popular,
and for many years was rarely played
-particularly in Vienna, where the
critic Hanslick (famous as an advo-
cate of Brahms and notorious as an
opponent of Wagner) dubbed it "the
Triangle Concerto." The reference
was to the scherzo sectionsin which
there is a considerable use of the
triangle-an instrument which for
fastidious ears had only a meretri-
cious tinkle. .
State Legislature
Passes Fenlon Bill
The State Senate yesterday' com-
pleted legislative action on the Fen-
Ion Bill, which permits the University
of Michigan to qualify for a $4,000,000
gift from the Rackham Foundation,
according to the Associated Press.
This measure repeals an almost-
forgotten and never-enforced act re-
quiring that cash gifts to the Uni-
versity be deposited with the State
Treasurer. The law was ignored be-
cause the State constitution gives the
University's Board of Regents au-
thority to regulate its own affairs.
The bill now goes to Gov. Frank
Murphy for his signature in order to
go into effect.
