Miss Williams Urges Students
To Help American Youth1
Totally blind, Mrs. Beulah Rich-
ards of Ypsilanti lives today because
her son Cecil, six years old, had a
cold Wednesday and had to stay
home from school.
Cecil and his mother were listening
to the radio when he suddenly dis-
covered that their house was afire.
With flames sweeping along the wall
close to the only available exit, Cecil
took his mother by the hand and led
her to safety.
The house was completely demol-
ished. Nothing was saved but the
clothing worn by mother and son as
they made their escape.

Whe female sickness rate is 16
per cent higher than the male,
but women live longer than men
on the average, Professor Sinai
told the group.
Professor Sinai was speaking
on the health insurance plan. It
is because of the difference in
sickness rate, he said, that in-
surance companies are wary of
handling health insurance for
groups with a high percentage of

Restoration Of NYA
Jobs Provided In
Needed Badly, She
Centering her talk, "Jobs. NYA and!
the American Youth Act," about the
immediate need for jobs of 4,500,000
youths, out of school, out of work,
Frances Williams, national adminis-
trative secretary of the American
youth Congress, told an audience of
students and faculty members Wed-
nesday that the American Youth Act
was the solution to one of the most
vital and urgent problems on the
American scene today.
Aiss Williams, who is on a national
tour, described the chaotic conaition
of the German youth following the
war, "who despairing of not being
included in things, literally jumped
into the arms of Hitler, who gave
them a feeling of belonging." There
is danger, she warned of Aierican
youth "jumping" for the first d-ma-
gogue who offers jobs.
Murry Fathered Bill
The proposed Act, introduced in'
the Senate by Sen. James E. Mur-
ray with a working capital of $500,-
000,000 would provide not only added
vocational guidance and training, and
employment opportunities for youths
between the ages of 16 and 25, but it
would provide increased educational
opportunities for high school, college
and post-graduate students and give
them a dignified place in society,
Miss Williams pointed out.
The AYA is different from the pres-
ent NYA in duration, policies and ap-
propriations, she stated. While the
present NYA is on a temporary year-
to-year basis, subject to scrapping
by any administration, the AYA
would establish a permanent admin-
istration, Miss Williams explained.
NYA policies are determined by a
single administrator, she continued, Organis's Goo] Friday

board, democratically controlled with C er IS'tradition

American democracy is seriously
handicapped by the use of "bedsheet
ballots," made necessary by a multi-
plicity of candidates, Prof. James K.
Pollock, of the political science de-
partment, asserted in a report made
Professor Pollock said "bedsheet
ballots" have caused thousands of
voters to ignore candidates for minor
offices and thus have enabled poor
and unqualified men to filter into
political jobs by default.
"The shortening of the ballot,
which means the simplification of
the voter's task, seems to be an in-
dispensable and urgent reform to
restore the control of the govern-
ment to the people," he said.
Professor Pollock also reported
In Detroit four years ago 160,000
voters did not vote for candidates
to the State Legislature, although
they did vote for higher offices.
During the same selection Michi-
gan voters cast 156,000 fewer votes
for Congressman than for Governor.
Illinois cast 300,000 fewer votes
in 1932 for the office of Supreme
Court clerk than for the presidential
"Fatigue curves" among voters-
with the fatigue increasing propor-
tionately to the size of the ballot-
were displayed by Professor Pollock.
"In Michigan two out of every sev-
en who vote for governor in the pri-
maries will manage to last out the
difficult ordeal of marking their bal-
lots and registering their votes for
the last office on the ticket," he said.
"Or, to put it another way, four out
of every five persons who vote for
U. S. Senator in a primary do not
vote for the offices lower down on
"Over the whole period of the
direct primary in Michigan, approx-
imately twice as many votes have
been cast for the office of Governor
as for the office of Sheriff. These
and similar facts could be adduced
to show the dismal result of asking
the voter to assume a burden greater
than he can bear."

The case being argued, which is
open to the public, involves a ques-
tion of labor law in which an employ-
er protests the picketing of his res-

union is in agreement with the em-

John Cummiskey and Paul Roesch
argued in this case against Robert
Kneeland and Eugene Calder. The
case today will be argued by Philip
Buchen and Kenneth Lau, and ;They
will be opposed by Charles Johnson
and Alan Johnston.
Decisions of the judges as to which
five are the best will not be affected
by the legal stand any of them may
take in the case. Of the five, the
best four will argue in the coming
Case Club finals on April 19, Foun-
der's Day. All five will be senior
advisers for the Case Club next year.

Fundamental concepts affectingt
the relation of the individual and
engineer to the community and the
relation of engineering to business
form the general basis of study in
an unique course conducted by Prof.
John S. Worley of the transportation
Listed in the official bulletin of
announcements for the engineering
college as "Contracts, Specifications
and Engineering Relations," the
course supplements the study of pro-
fessional relationships with a general
and informal analysis of the more
elementary and fundamental con-l
cepts and ideals touching the con-
duct of the individual in society.
The prime objective behind the
first six weeks of the course, accord-
ing to Professor Worley, is to arrange,
and define the fundamental concepts
which we use daily, and further toj
clear distorted views and ideals in
the minds of students.
Attacked and analyzed are such
pertinent terms and expressions ast
"education," "character," and "per-
sonality," with special emphasis ont
the meaning of these terms and the
importance of their influence on
Upon these concepts and princi-
ples of conduct analyzed in the first
part of the course are based the un-
derlying reasons for professional
codes and ethics. It is pointed out
that all professionad codes are fun-
damentally based upon the previous
unfortunate experiences of members
of that profession with society.
