S achar To Speak At Hillel
On The Present Jewish Crisis

Professor Brown
Calls Fingerprint
Substitute Useless
Scientific knowledge concerning
the electrical recording of "thought
waves," advanced yesterday by Dr.
Lee E. Travis of the University of
Southern California as a method that
will soon supplement fingerprinting
as a means of identification, is still
too scant to have much practical
value, Prof. Carl R. Brown of the
psychology department declared to-
day.
Dr. Travis, in a nationally circulat-
ed press release, claimed that he had
proved by a series of experiments
that individual thought waves of the
brain could be recorded, and that,
as in the case of fingerprinting,
no two persons radiated identical
thought waves.
Professor Brown stated that many
scientists in the world today are con-
ducting experiments in this work, and
still have reached no common deci-
sion as to the practical value of this
type of experiment. Many of them
maintain that the impulses which
are recorded are not actually
"thought" waves, but that they are
some other type of wave which radi-
ates constantly from the brain cells,
he explained.

Hitler Regime
Called Symbol
Of Past Beliefs
Hitler is the logical result of 100
years of German thought which have
seen an increasing belief in an omni-
potent state, Prof. E. S. Wolaver of
the School of Business Administra-
tion declared recently.
ISpeaking before the convention of
the American Association of Teachers
and Business Law at the Hotel Statler
in 'Detroit, Professor Wolaver cited
the leading German philosophers of
the past century to substantiate his
belief..
"German philosophers have always
preached that the state's highest
Imoral duty is to strengthen itself, and
they have maintained that it is the
duty of the state to make war," Pro-
fessor Wolaver said.
"Germans are the most religious'
and mystical people in the world.
They are not materialistic. The more
they accomplish in the realm of
material conquest the more they
recognize and laud the moral duty
and their supernatural right to lead
the 'world.
"Hitler is the mouthpiece of "pres-
ent-day Germany ..He is ' giving the
people what they have believed to be
their heritage for the last 100 years.
lHe is protecting them from all foreign
ideas which they believe to be really
dangerous by persecuting everything
not strictly German. He is glorifying
all the things that the philosopher,
Nietzche, set up as ideals, the martial
spirit, lust for power and a hatred
of love as taught by Christianity."

"Menorah Journal." He is the author
of several books, including "A His-
tory of the Jews" and a survey outs
line of Jewish history.
Tn 1929 Dr. Sachar resigned from
the faculty of the University of Illi-
nois to accept the directorship of the
National Hillel Foundations. In addi-
t4on, he is director of the Hillel Chap-
ter at the University of Illinois. At
present he is active in an attempt to
relieve the Jewish refugee situation
in Germany.
The lecture will be delivered in
the Foundation lounge. A question
period will follow the address. The
speaker will come directly from De-
troit, where he is scheduled to address
the Town Hall Friday morning.
Auto Essay Contest
Announced By SAE
"How can the present automobile
be improved?" is the subject of an
essay contest sponsored by the De-
troit, Section of the Society of Auto-
motive Engineers for students of
Michigan engineering \schools.
The contestant may approach this
question from the standpoint of the
user, the manufacturer, qr of the
public welfare. The paper must be
less than 3,000 words and need /not
be limited purely to matters of de-
sign.

or Thesis
Psychologist
Wins $1000
Paper On Neurotic Rats
Called 'Outstanding'
Prof. Norman R. F. Maier of the
psychology department was awarded
a $1,000 prize for his paper on "Ex-
perimentally Produced Neurotic Be-
havior in the Rat," by the American
Association . for the Advancement of
Science last Tuesday at Richmond.
The prize was presented for the most
outstanding paper at the conven-
tion.
Neurotic behavior has been the
subject of much animal experimen-
tation by psychologists in an effort
to determine the nature and cause of
neurotic behavior in man.
Motion Pictures Shown
Professor Maiers experiments were
fully recorded by motion pictures
which were shown at the meeting.
The actual tests were conducted
through the means of the Lashley
apparatus. In this device the mice
jump at two cards. A white card
with a black ci cle on it topples over
when struck, revealing food. The
second card, a black one with a white
circle, remains firm and gives the
rat a bump on the nose when he
leaps at it. The animal quickly learns
at which card to jump.
In the case of Professor Maier's in-
vestigations, when the mice had
learned which card to attack, the
cards were switched. This was done
several times until the rats refused
to jump at all. Then they were
forced to jump by a blast of air.
Finally one card was removed and
the rats now faced with an entirely
new situation, exhibited symptoms
of a nervous breakdown. The r4s
at this 'point in Professor Maier's
studies leaped from the apparatus,
ran around the floor in circles and
then stopped and exhibited convul-
sions of "tis." Finally they fell inta
a coma, their eyes expressionless and
glassy.
Response Is Necessary
"The aspect of the situation re-
sponsible for the abnormal behavior
of the rats seems to be the necessity
of responding to a situation," Pro-
fessor Maier explained, "in whic
there is no mode of behavior avail-
able. This aspect is strikingly pres-
ent in the case histories of human
beings suffering nervous breakdowns.
"Pregnancy and the conflicts aris-
ing from sin contribute greatly to
neurotic behavior by leaving no av-
enue for the behavior and yet re-
quiring something ke done."
Problems that cannot be solved are
not neurosis-producing when there
is no compulsion to their solution he
added, and the cure seems to lie in
the finding of a way -for the pa-
tient to behave.
Uses New Method
Professor Maier's experiments are
not the first in which neuroses have
been produced in animals. In the
last few years psychologists of Cornell
University obtained similar results
with pigs, goats and sheep. However,
Professor Maier used a new method
of allowing the rats freedom of move-
ment. His method also differs from
that of establishing a conditioned
reflex in the subject of the experi-
ment. The first experiments of this
type were conducted by Dr. Ivan Pav-
lov in 1928 through the use of dogs
and geometric figures on cards.
The awards committee commend-
ed Professor Maier for "the conserva-
tism he exhibited and for the scrupu-
lous avoidance of temptation to apply
his discoveries prematurely to the

field in which they may ultimately
be vastly significant-namely, neuro-
tic behavior in human beings."
