Kiwanis Club
Hears Author
Former Local Pastor Tells
Members Meeting Here
3-Day Convention,
Concludes Tonight

Lloyd C. Douglas Tells Reporter
Writing Is Big-ScalePreaching


Citing the old Greeke legend of Gala-
tea, the beautiful girl carved from
ivory by Pygmalion, who then fell in
love with his creation and was re-'
warded by her coming to life, Dr.
Lloyd C..Douglas,told a near capacity
audience of Michigan Kiwanians,
townspeople, and students Sunday
night in Hill Auditorium that the
"highest joy of man is to bring things
to life."
Dr. Douglas, author of "Magnifi-
cent Obsession," "Green Light," and
"White Banners," and former pastor
of the local First Congregational
Church, delivered the keynote address
of the Michigan Kiwanis convention
now in session here. He was intro-
duced by President Ruthven, who wel-
comed the delegates as co-workers
with the University.
Treats Convention Theme
Drawing from a huge reserve of
anecdotes and relating his own ex-
perieices, Dr. Douglas treated the
convention theme, "citizenship re-
sponsibility." Any consideration of
this all-inclusive term, he said, must
take into account, not only the im-
mediate, visible surroundings, but also
the world at ,large. It is this notion of
isolation and living in our own little
worlds, he warned, that causes much
of the strife and trouble that we see
In briefly reviewing the world scene,
Dr. Douglas noted: "The rank and file
of people in the world are eager to
live lives of~ freedom and peace. A
small handful clamor for power. Most
people merely want to be left alone.
It Is the minority, numerically insig-
nificait, suffering from hallucina-
tory omnipotence, who want turmoil."
People Want Peace
People do not want war, the former
minister declared, but whether it is
better to disarm in the hope of oth-
ers following suit, or arm to frighten
the rest is a question. A tiger in the
jungle, he related, would be foolish
to announce in a peaceful gesture
that he had lost his claws and teeth.
Relating experiences in respect to
his own writing, Dr. Douglas noted
what a great sense of satisfaction and
pleasure ,it gave him to watch his
characters develop and progress from
the early stages, when they were
merely jumbled thoughts in his mind,
tothe time he saw them as living,
breathing creatures on the screen.
The three day convention closes
today with the Governors Banquet
at 7:00 p. m. in the Union.
Nazis Regret'
Recent Attack
Upon CardinaI
Hitler Aid Goes To Vienna;
May Send Guilty Persons
To Concentration Camps
VIENNA, Oct. 10.-(P)-Joseph
Buerckel, Chancellor Adolf Hitler's
Commissioner for Austria, was under-
stood to have returned to Vienna to-
day intent upon sending to concen-
tration camps persons responsible for
Nazi attacks upon 62-year-old Theo-
dore Cardinal Innitzer.
The attacks are "deeply regretted"
In official Germany, it was said.
SThe agency Dienst Aus Deutsch-
land in an inspired article from Ber-
lin said Buerckel had "taken most
vigorous action" against demonstra-
tions including that Saturday night,
wher4 the Cardinal was cut by flying
glass in the stoning of his palace in
St. Stephen's Square by Nazi mobs.
Dienst Aus Deutschland said:
"Incidents in Vienna in the course
of which demonstrations were made
against Cardinal Innitzer are deeply
regretted in official German circles.

"Reich Commissar Buercke! has
taken most vigorous action against
the provocative demonstrations."
Vatican circles said today that news
of the attack Saturday night upon
Theodore Cardinal Innitzer, Arch-
bishop of Vienna, in his palace has

'Movies Have Not Abusedl
Novels,' ays Author Of
Lloyd Douglas is a tall man. He
has a peculiar way of looking at you
,hat makes you feel that he has
known you for a long time. When I
called on the author of "Magnificent
Obsession," "Green Light," and'
"White Banners," yesterday after-
.noon in Room 317 of the Union, he
received me cordially and lookedl
stately despite the striped pajamas
. in which he was lounging.
I declined the proferred cigarette
and admitted that I had no definite
questions with which to interview
him, but I was sure that anything
he might have to say would be of in-
terest. He told of coming to Ann Ar-
bor in 1915 remaining as pastor of
the First Congregational Church un-
til 1921, and officiating at the fu-
nerals of Dir. Angell and Dr. Burton,
former presidents of the University.
He told of the pastorates he has held
in Columbus, Montreal, Akron, Wash-
ington, D.C., and Los Angeles, where1
he now makes his home.
At last I thought of a question
to ask him. "Do you feel that the mo-
tion pictures have portrayed your
novels as you nieant them to be?"
"I am very much satisfied with the
job Hollywood has done with my
books," he answered, shifting his
large frame in the chair, "They have
not abused them at all."
"Do you feel that you are, in a way,
carrying on the same preaching in
your books that you started on the
"Yes; writing is the same as deliv-

ering a sermon, except that before I
reached only hundreds; now I reach
hundreds of, thousands. Then, too,,
I feel a little freer in writing-the
traditions of the pulpit more or less
dictate how you must talk-the hu-
man interest is lacking. When I
write, I can conceive characters and
make them do my bidding."
"What is your opinion of the so-
called modern school of literature?"
"They have a literature of despair.
They present nothing constructive.
For the. person who thinks the world
is gone, they are all right. For those,
however, who have troubles, they do
not do any good."
"Have the students changed since
you were here?"
"Same old gang," he said, lighting
another cigarette.

Council, governing body of Congress.
Congress was founded in the Spring,
1937, in response to a growing demand
for a service organization specific-
ally designed to fill the needs of non-
affiliated men. Since that time, the
group has expanded its activities to
include such fields as student welfare,
social activities and sports.
The first in the series of Congress
tea dances, inaugurated last spring,
and conducted in conjunction with
Assembly, women's independent or-
ganization, will be held from 4 p.m.
to 6 p.m. Thursday in the League.

Are Outvoted

Suprene Court Grants
Ford Request To Review
River Rouge Issue
WASHINGTON, Oct. 10. - (') -
President Roosevelt's two appointees
to the Supreme Court have tried in
vain to persuade the tribunal that it
should review a lower court decision
against Thomas J. Mooney, the labor
leader who has been fighting for 20
years against his conviction of com-
plicity in a famous bombing.
This was disclosed today when the
Court, with Justices Black and Reed
dissenting, refused Money's request
that it review the decision announced
last Oct. 31 by the California Su-
preme Court.
Mooney, told of the Court action,
pinned his remaining hopes for free-
dom on the California election in
November. Culbert L. Olson, the
Democratic candidate for governor,
has expressed the intention of par-
doning him if elected.
The Mooney case was among ap-
proximately 300 which accumulated
during the Court's four-month sum-
mer recess and were considered for
The National Labor Board was
granted reviews of two adverse lower
court decisions. An employer's re-
quest for review of another decision,
favoring the Board, was denied. The
Board failed, however, in its effort
to prevent review of a Federal Circuit
Court order permitting it to with-
draw litigation against the Ford Mo-
tor Co. for amendment of procedure.
