Dr. MeClusky
Stresses Parent
Eduea tion As
Aid ToYouth
600 Expected To Attend
Ninth Annual Meeting
Of Education Institute
Says Teachers Need
Parent Cooperation
Education of adults is a vital pri-
mary step in the education and
guidance of youth, declared Prof.
Howard Y. McClusky of the educa-
tjon school yesterday in the opening
address of the ninth annual Parent
Education Institute, held in the
Graduate School.
More than 600 educators are expect-
ed to complete registration for the
Institute today. It is sponsored by
the University Extension Service,
with the cooperation of the educa-
tion school and the Michigan Con-
gress of Parents and Teachers.
Need Adult Aid
In anywhere from onehalf to two
thirds of child problems, practically
no results are obtainable without"
adult cooperation, Prof. McClusky
said. A concrete example of this, ,he
pointed out, is in the matter of child
health. It would be almost impossible
to educate the child in even the basic
necessities of health without support
from the home and the parents.
Moreover, the comparatively simple
task of setting up youth organizations
of even a local character is extremely
difficult without the cooperation of
the community as a whole. Not only
mst the community be thoroughly
informed as to the nature of activi-.
ties being set up for the children to
prevent the undermining influence of
uninfornjed gossip, but the whole-
hearted support of the adult popula-
tion is needed to accomplish the
more concrete work of finding activ-
ity space and facilities.
The great trouble with existing
youth organizations such as Boy and
Girl Scouts is found in their almost
3omplete lack of contact with adults,
Professor McClusky added. While do-
ing good work in their way, he said,
theyi are out of contact with the com-
munity in a cooperative spirit.
Professor McClusky pointed out
that the two primary points of the
situation he described were first, that
the problems of youth and the typical
adult education program are inevit-
ably tied together, and second that
no progress can be made in either
one or the other without attention to
Judgment Necessary
The need for dscriminating judg-
ment of problems as well as a constant
self-education on the part of the
adult is vitally important in the
world of today, Miss Winifred Fish-
er, executive director of the New
York Adult Education Council told
the afternoon session of the Parent-
Education Institute in the amphi-
theatre of the graduate school.
Citing the gubernatorial cam-
paigns in New York and Michigan,
Miss Fisher commented on the tend-
ency for the general public to be
taken in by'eatch phrases which ob-
scure the real issues.4
It is important to remember the
close relationship between the per-
sonal life of an individual and the
group or social life, Miss Fisher de-
clared. The modern educator must
stop thinking of adult education in

an abstract, impersonal way as some-

Murphy Ideal Governor,.
Regent Remans Declares
Prof. DawsonSees Him Unharmed By Dies Hearings;
State Bar Representative Upholds Court Change,
Lynch Fears Too Much Control By Lawyers

No man is better fitted to govern
according to the principles of indi-
vidual rights and democracy than
Gov. Frank Murphy, Regent Charles
F. Hemans, co-speaker with Prof.
John P. Dawson, of the Law School,
declared at an open meeting of the
Progressive Club held last night in
the Union.
Since the founding of our govern-
ment, the American people have been
struggling to secure the rights assured
them in the Constitution, Regent
Hemans said, and in the period of the1
New Deal they have come nearer to
success than ever before. If a Re-
publican is elected to any county,
state or national office, he said, it
will mean a denial of all those prin-
ciples for which we fought.
Governor Murphy has shown by his
action in the 1937 strikes, he added,
that he places human values above
property rights, and that, as the head
of the state, he can be counted on to,
do what is best for the interests of
both the working mien and the em-
Represenative Dies and his com-
mittee have been so thoroughly dis-
credited both by popular sentiment
and statement of government offi-
cials, that it is doubtful if Murphy
was harmed by the accusations
brought against him, Professor Daw-I
son said.
In addition to supporting social
security and welfare reorganization
measures, he said Governor Murphy
has backed a major reform of the
civil service, and has set up a com-
mission to work on a complete re-
organization of the government. In
view of this record, and .in the face
of the Governor's judicious appoint-
ments, he added, Republican criticism
of Murphy as an administrator do
not carry much weight.

Denying the argument of George
Brand, president of the Michigan
State Bar Association, that the pro-
posed amendment to the State con-
stitution, providing that justices of
the Supreme Court be appointed in-
directly by the governor rather than
elected, would take the judiciary out
of politics, Regent John Lynch camel
out strongly last night against what
he called an attempt to "install a
lawyer-controlled judiciary" in Michi-
gan. The 'debate took place in the
Union under the auspices of the
Lawyers' Liberal Club, an association
of students in the Law School.
The amendment which will ap-
pear before voters Tuesday provides
for the appointment by the Gover-
nor of justices to the Supreme Court
from a slate presented to him by
a Judiciary Committee of three lay-
men, three lawyers, and three judges.
One of the judges will be elected by
members of the Supreme Court bench,
one by the Circuit Court judges sit-
ting in the State and one by the Pro-
bate judges of the state, all serving
without compensation.
Arguing that the present system
of nominating 'our justices through
the medium of the State convention
plunged the judiciary into "the worst
kind of politics," Mr. Brand sub-
mitted that the amendment would
remove the judges from the necessity
of incurring political obligations and'
keeping political fences intact to get
into office and stay there.".
The nomination of judges by
"politically controlled conventions
far removed from the popular man-
date, renders the voice of the people
in their selection a myth," he de-
Emphasizing the point that the
selection of the justices would be in
the hands of the six lawyers on the

State Intention To Forge
China Into Manchukuo
Bloc AndJap Empire
Point Out Germany,
Italy For Gratitude
TOKYO, Nov. 2.--(P)-Japan to-
light warned the world of her inta-
ion to force China into a solid bloc
7ith Manchoukuo and the Japanese
empire for the political and economic
lomination of East Asia.
Extension of her domination over
China to carry out Japan's "im-
mutable policy" for Far Eastern re-
construction after the present war
with China, was formally announced
with the Japanese government's aim
envisioning an "Asia for the Asi-
Doubles Empire
It meant that insular Japan-her'
principal islands comprising some
148,000 square miles-intends to more
than double the vast empire unrolling
behind her conquering armies and
make Japanese interests supreme de-;
spite the protests of the United States
mnd other foreign powers.
The scope of Japan's plan, an-
nouncedpin commemoration of to-
morrow's national holiday of the
birthday of the late Emperor Meiji,
was indicated by the vast territory
Already Tokyo rules 575,000 square1
miles of the Asiatic mainland-
Korea, annexed in 1910, and Man-
choukuo, a puppet empire created
out of Manchuria by conquest in
1931-33. That territory has been
doubled by the presentwar which
started July 7, 1937 and thus far has
brought 575,000 square miles of 13
Chinese provinces under at least nom-
inal Japanese rule.
Sympathetic Nations
Only those nations "which are in
sympathy with us'- parently Ger-
many and Italy with whom Japan is
allied in an anti-Communist pac-
were singled out for Japan's grati-
tude in the government statement.
Other western powers were ignored.
"WhOt Japan seeks is establish-
ment of a new order which will en-
sure permanent stability in East
Asia," said the statement. "In this
lies the ultimate purpose of our mili-
tary campaign.
"This new order will have for its
foundation a tri-partite relationship
of mutual aid and coordination
among Japan, Manchoukuo and Chi-
na in political, economic, cultural and
other fields. The object is to secure
international justice, to perfect a
joint defense against Commhnism, to
crepte a new culture and to realize
close economic cohesion throughout
East Asia."

Commons Votes To Settle
Pact With Rome Soon;
Eden Warns of Perils
Chamberlain Says.
Spain Is No Threat
The Spanish Insurgent motor ves-
el, Nadir, shelled and sank the
British-owned Spanish government
freighter, Cantabria, just a few miles
oa tside territorial waters off the Eng-
ish east coast yesterday afternoon.
Iast night Prime Minister Neville
Chamberlain won an overwhelming
victory in the House of Commons,
which approved, 345 to 138, his de-
cision to bring the Anglo-Italian
I:iendship pact into operation.
Before the vote Chamberlain de-
lared the Spanish War was "no long-
r a menace to the peace of Europe"
nd urged parliamentary approval of
inmediate effectiveness of his accord
with Premier Mussolini.
Defied' Vessel
Survivors of the attacked govern-
ment freighter, reaching Cromer, Nor-
olk, near where the shelling started,
sAid the Cantabria defied the "sur-
ender or fight" order signalled from
he Nadir about 2 p.m. The Nadir
then sent shell after shell into the
shuddering framework of the Can-
abria for about three hours and bat-
ered her into a hulk before the
feighter caught fire. The crew and
passengers were then taken off.
The captain, speaking through an
interpreter, said there were 37 mem-
bers of the crew and passengers, in-
'uding three women' and five chil-
aren. Most survivors were taken off
y the Nadir and ten or eleven by the
London-bound steamer, Pattersonian.

casualties but said the Cantabria

this campus organization to stimulate
interest in vital matters of the day,
Sessions explained.

Exhibits have been planned by the
fine arts department, the Glider Club,
the geology department, and several
departments of the engineering
school. The Botanical Gardens will1
present an exhibit for the first time
this year.
The geology department's exhibit
will include samples of many precious

these funds plus the present amount
will reach the goal.
