Ann Arbor News Editor
Discusses New Trends
In Modern Journalism
Newspapers in the future will de-
vote more and more space to news
pictures, Arthur W. Stace, editor of
the Ann Arbor News, predicted yester-
day in an illustrated lecture spon-
sored by the journalism department
at the Rackham amphitheatre. The
talk was the third in a series intended
to give those interested in journalism
an opportunity to hear and talk with
Editors are at last beginning to real-
ize the potentialities of pictures as
means of attracting attention to news
articles, Stace explained. The average
reader today is too busy to do more
than skim through a newspaper. Pic-
'ures and cartoons help him to see
important issues at a glance, and
serve to draw his attention to the
This trend towards the use of more
pictures- may be illustrated by the
conduct of the Associated Press, Mr.
Statce stated. Following its conserva-
tive tendencies, the Associated Press
was one of the last news-gathering
agencies to adopt the regular use of
pictures. Today, it is a leading gather-
er of news pictures, and was the first
to transmit pictures by telephoto. At
the- recent meeting of the Associated
Press in Cleveland, Kent Cooper, one
of its officials, declared that the "time
is approaching when papers will be 50
per cent text, and 50 per cent pic-
tures; and both text and pictures will
be sent over the same wire."
Asiatic War Today
Curtis Manchester, graduate student
in geography, will review "The Real
Conflict Between China and Japan"
by H. F. MacNair, at the Association
Book Review at 4:15 today in Lane
Mr. MacNair's new book was high-
ly recommended by the New York
Times Book Review for showing "what
a striking divergence exists between
the two nations in national charac-
teristics, thought, mode of action and
attitude toward government."
Slovak Police Check Anti-German Riots In Bratislava
A mob is shown in this picture, transmitted from London to New York by radio, as it was driven back by
police in Bratislava following demonstrations against Germans during which stench and smoke bombs were
discharged. A day later the Slovakian parliament voted its independence under the sponsorship of Gernany,
and Prague admitted the dissolution of the Czechoslovakian government.

Many of the great cures, marking
milestones in the history of medicine,
stem out of man's almost eternal
search to find a "magic bullet"-
some mighty drug that would seek
out infection and destroy it ruth-

tary of the School of Medicine, said
Egyptian physicians in the days of
Rameses were already on the search

Alchemy and its engrossing search
for a mixture that would turn lead
into gold failed to add any decisive
factor in the search for the "magic
bullet," but there was one man, Pa-
racelsus, a super-charlatan, who at-
tempted to explain all animal activi-

fort to prove his contention, Para-
