should make up our minds that life
really does begin at forty."
Speaking on the subject "The Crit-
ical Age of Forty," Dr. Sundwall said
that social and economic burdens fall
most heavily upon those between the
ages of forty and sixty, and therefore
it is necessary that particular atten-
tion should be paid to the problem
of maintaining their health.
He outlined a general health pro-
gram for persons of forty or over,
eiphasizing the fact that a proper
mental attitude is the basic require-
ment for good health.
"Since 1900," he continued, "great
progress has been made in human
conservation." This is the direct re-
sult, he pointed out, of the saving
of infant lives and the comparatively
recentacontrol of bacteriological dis-
eases. "At the turn of the century,"
he said, "the average length of life
was forty years. Since 1900, we have
succeeded in adding twenty years to
the average life." State health de-
partments have been instrumental in
bringing about this progress, he ex-

Dr. Sundwall concluded by trac-
ing the general history of the de-'
velopmentnof disease control since the
birth of Christianity.
Lee A White of the Detroit News
in his speech "The Authenticity of
Ne'ws" at 2 p.m., yesterday, in an
Adult Teachers Institute meeting,
stated that as long as the press is hu-
man it will be subject to human
weaknesses, the greatest of which is
the tendency to err.
Training and practice on the part
of the journalists will reduce this ten-
dency to err, he continued.
There are numerous types of in-
accuracy in a newspaper, the most
outstanding of which is the hoax,
said Mr. White. This is usually the
result of a sense of humor gone
astray, carelessness, dishonesty or
ignorance, he stated. Some people
get great enjoyment out of giving the
reporter wrong information and see-
ing a falsehood printed in the news-
paper he said.
,Gives Cause Of Errors
Grea't calamities cause much inac-
curacy in the printing of the news,
continued Mr. White, as is evidenced
by the varying stories printed in each
succeeding edition following a flood
or earthquake. The public asks for
the approximate truth and the news-
papermen in the beleagured area en-
deavors to get this, he stated. The
approximate truth is much better
than the reports that are the result
of Dame Rumor, said he.
Another form of inaccuracy is "os-
trich journalism" or inaccuracy by
omission of any facts, Mr. White said.
He cited the case of a Chicago hotel
whose water was polluted. The news-
papers did not print all the facts and
as 'a result many people died, he stat-
ed. Another inaccuracy for which
the newspaper is responsible is typo-
graphical errors, he said.
According to Mr. White there are
many inaccuracies for which the
newspapermen are not responsible.
Often men say things in interviews
,which they later regret after seeing
them in print and then try to cover
them up by stating that the reporter
was inaccurate, he stated.
Many times the public holds the
press responsible for something that
was quoted, continued Mr. White.
Many distinguished liars impose
falsehoods upon the trusting, confid-

ing press, he said.
Source Material Faulty
A large number of inaccuracies of
the press result from the inaccuracies
in source material, said Mr. White.
Who's Who, the World Almanac, En-
cyclopedia Brittanica all have inac-
curacies in them, he stated.
Mr. White was twice managing ed-
itor of The Daily.
Prof. William Haber of the eco-
nomics department and one of the
formulators of the Michigan Social
Security Act vigorously defended the
Federal law.
"This problem has been called one
for the states to handle by them-
selves," he pointed out, "but it has
not worked out that way. Each one
fears to take the first step lest it be
ruined economically. As a result, be-
fore the present administration, only
one state had passed a bill concern-
ing unemployment insurance."
There are three main provisions
of the act, according to Professor
Haber. The first is a means of en-
couraging state action in old age pen-
sion laws. It provides that the gov-
ernment will match dollar for dollar

confront a young graduate engineer
is the theme of "Training Schools" by
Frank Dennison, '36E, who is de-

With the retirement of Willis Van Devanter, 78 year old Supreme Court Justice from the Court (left), President Roosevelt was given his first
opportunity to appoint a new justice. One of the men most frequently mentioned as a possible successor to Justice Van Devanter was Robert H.

Committee which recommended by a vote of 10 to 8 that the President's Court Reorganization Bill be defeated. He is shown with Senator Pat

Valley Development
The story of how a government
project found the facts first, and then!
went to work to develop a wartime
"whitetelephant," Muscle Shoals, as
part of a huge program of power pro-
duction, flood control, industrial re-
habilitation and improved navigation
was told yesterday by Dr. G. Donald
Hudson, of the Land Classification
Section of the Tennessee Valley Au-
thority, in Natural Science auditor-
The geographers' contribution to
the immense undertaking which af-
fects some two million people was de-
scribed by Dr. Hudson as consisting
of inventorying the whole economy'
of the Tennessee Valley.
Airplanes were used in photograph-
ing the drainage district, he said, and
then maps were pieced together with,
indices which reflected the living
conditions of the inhabitants, the soil
resources, the extent to which these
resources were being developed, the
consequences of new readjustments
and population distribution.
On the basis of the analyses of
the geographers together with thor-
ough investigations on the part of
other scientists the Tennessee Valley
is becoming the scene of wide-spread
improvements that are carefully
planned, Dr. Hudson said.

the donation of the states for this!
purpose. "The principle behind this
portion of the act is one of need."
Professor Haber added. "All recipi-
ents must show indigence."
The second provision, a supplement
to the first, is a system of compul-
sory old age insurance which includes
over half the working population.
"Poverty has no consideration here,"
Professor Haber stressed. "All sal-
aried employes, even Alfred Sloan of
General Motors being eligible."
The third provision, which, like the
first, encourages state action, sets up
an unemployment insurance system.1
The Federal Government levies a!
payroll tax but refunds it to the
states that have satisfactory unem-
ployment, insurance schemes.-
That the Social Security Act has
been successful, Professor Haber!
proves by the fact that 44 states nowj
have old age pension systems and 45
have passed unemployment insur-
ance laws. He stated, in concluding,
however, that the law will be mod-
ified soon, as it now takes too long
to pay substantial returns and that
it requires an unwieldy and econo-
mically unsound reserve fund.

where buildings have been gifts, have
unusual expenditures been made in
connection with the exterior as well
as interior, attractiveness of the
structures. This has naturally
brought about a sharp distinction in
the appearances of such structures as
the Law Quadrangle, the Clements
Library and the Rackham Graduate
School and State constructed build-
ings. This, I believe, explains the
general dissimiliarity of campus
buildings," Professor Gram said.
