Brumm Talks
Before Dentist
Hits Competition, StressI
On Fiiancial Rewardsj
As Education Motives
Education turns the individual intoI
an efficient tool or machine, Prof.
John L. Brumm, chairman of the
journalism department, told an as-j
sembly of students of the School of
Dentistry yesterday when he spoke on
"The Menace of Efficiency."
Many people are efficient machines,.
but are not rich human beings, he de-
dared, unless they 'lave acquired cul-
ture, learned to read good books and
use imagination. The tragedy with
education today, Professor BrummI
said, is that it is so concerned with'
competition and with teaching thel
individual to earn a living. Eighty per
cent of the people who are profitably
employed would be happier and ac-
complish more if they were engaged
in other jobs, he stated.!
People consider themselves skillful
if they are able to do something with
practiced ease, so that they won't
have to give thought to doing it, he
said. If they are not constantly aware
of the fact, they soon sell their souls
to efficiency.

Michigan was rapidly digging it-
self out of the snow Thursday, happy
that the winter's worst storm had left
little damage in its wake.
The State Highway Department re-I
ported that the emergency was "defi-
nitely past," and that highways were
almost all cleared to at least one-
way traffic.
However, cold weather was fore-
cast for Thursday night and Friday
in the lower peninsula. More snow
seemed unlikely.
The sole area still isolated was
Munising, where roads were still
blocked at the last report and tele-
phone connections had not been re-
sumed. Highway officials believed
they would not get into the city be-
fore Friday.
The Newberry area, close by was
still having trouble Thursday -in re-
turning to "civilization," but mail was
brought out by a highway snowplow
Thursday to Trout Lake, and a bus
with mail had entered the city from
Sault Ste. Marie.
The State Highway Department
still sought Ito check a rumor that a
baby had died of exposure in a Muni-
sing hospital after being marooned
oevrnight in a snowbound automobile
between Seney and Munising.
The reports said highway crews
rescued the baby and two men and a
Coroner James Hodge used snow
shoes and a toboggan Thursday to
bring out the body of Maurice L.
Allenstein, 46, of Muskegon, from a
farm seven and a half miles south of
Negaunee. Hodge and Allenstein
shot himself through the head during
a period of despondency. He was a
caretaker on the farm.
All through the upper peninsula
welfare department agents pushed in-
to isolated areas as fast as plows
opened roads. They carried food and
medical supplies to relieve any storm
sufferers found in the back country.
County, welfare, and highway of-
ficials reported that little actual suf-
fering was found as 'a result of the,
three-day storm.

Asserts Hitler Is Sincere
In Declaring Germany
Wants No More War
(Continued from Page 1)
Herbert, which prevented them from
going into action and permitted Hit-
ler to continue his policy of treaty
Many factors will tend to deter
Hitler in the event that he decides he
would like to lead Germany into war,
the speaker said, and he pointed
out as one of these the fear among
the people that their cities would be
destroyed as soon as war is declared.
"Germany could not hope for a
short campaign," he said, "and she isi
not prepared for a long one. She
doesn't have the food supply, and she

doesn't have the gold to buy it from
her neighbors."C
Armament on a stupendous scale'
in Britain will also tend to deter Hit-
ler, Sir Herbert stated, for Great Bri-
tain can outbuild Germany, because
she can out-finance her.
Germany knows, the speaker con-
tinued, as she did not know before
the last war, that if Belgium is in-
vaded Britain will come to her aid.
France and Britain are cooperating
as never before, and Hitler will also
have to take this into consideration.
"Hitler will start no war against
the advice of the official military
staff," Sir Herbert said, "and I think
that the staff is convinced that Ger-
many at present does not have as
good a chance for a successful war as
she had in 1914."

Tuberculosis Funds
Elimination of indigency as a prere-
quisite for the treatment of tuber-
culosis and the removal of red tape
in administering funds for tubercu-
losis treatment by three laws passed
by the Michigan Legislature in 1937
is one more step in a long series of
achievements which place Michigan
in the van of the tuberculosis move-
ment, according to an editorial in the
current issue of "Public Health Re-
views, monthly publication of the Di-
vision of Hygiene and 1ublic Health.
The editorial explains the three
laws provide for elimination of all
mention of indigency and poor com-
missioners, define responsibility for
the hospitalization of tubercular pa-
tients, treatment at public expense of
sanatorium out-patients, increased
aid to approved sanatoriums and care
at state expense for state hospital
employees who develop tuberculosis in
the performance of duty.
