"Why Communism?" will be the
topic of a panel conducted by Alpha
Ntu, honorary speech society, in which
several members of the Young Com-
munist League will take part at the
meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in
the Alpha Nu room on the fourth
floor of Angell Hall.
Meaers of the communist society
.vi -present arguments for the adop-
tion of their program and then will
be questioned by members of Alpha
Nu with such questions as "Why have
the Young Communists exchanged
their ideas of anti-Fascism for those
of anti-imperialism?", "Why has
I h e ir opposition to aggression
changed to an attitude of indifference
to aggression?", and "Why have they
changed their support of collective
security to a support of isolation?"

Brazil Topic
Of Del gado's
Lecture Series
Brazil's economic history and her
immigration problems, of particular
interest to this country, will be two
of the topics in, the series of six lec-
tures on Brazilian affairs to be given
here by Dr. Carlos Delgado de Car-
valho, South American sociologist
and geographer, April 16 through
May 6.
In addition to economic problems,
Dr. Delgado will also discuss racial
contacts in his country. In reference
to this subject, Prof. Preston E.
James, of the geography department
here, pointed out yesterday that
"Brazil is probably the world's great-
est melting pot."
Cites Racial Problem
"These racial problems are so ob-
viously the most important practical
issues arising in Brazil that any social
scientist, whatever his original point
of view, is drawn inevitably into in-
vestigating phis sociological ques-
tion," Professor James added.
The complete list of Dr. Delgado's
lectures is; as follws: April 16,
Glimpses of the Human Geography
of Brazil; April 19, An Outline of
the Economic History of Brazil;
April 23, Problems of Race Mixture
and White Acclimatization in Bra-
zil; April 25, Present Trends in Bra-
zilian Education; April 30, as annual
lecturer for Phi Kappa Phi at their
banquet, The Immigration Problem
in Brazil; May 6, The New Brazilian
To Conduct Discussions
Dr. Delgado will have informal
meetings with students and faculty
members of departments in the Di-
vision of Social Sciences,. to discuss
aspects of problems presented in his
lectures. He will also speak at sev-
eral luncheons and dinners.
Brazil, larger in area than the
United States, having over half the
total population of South America
within her borders, has always been
a cordial neighbor to this country,
Professor James said yesterday. He
attributed this friendly spirit at least
in part to the high calibre of people
who represented our countries to one
another. Dr. Delgado is one of these,
he said, for he represents the finest
type of Brazilian scholar.
War Expert To Discuss
European Peace Chances
"The Chance European Peace" will
be the subject of a lecture by S.L.A.
Marshall of the Detroit News at 2
p.m. tomorrow in Room E, Haven
Hall. The talk, which is under the
auspices of the journalism depart-
ment, is open to the public.
Mr. Marshall, who is an editorial
writer for the Detroit News and mili-
tary commentator for radio station
WWJ, is a veteran of the World War
and was a foreign correspondent. Be-
cause of his service abroad he is
familiar with the terrain of the battle-
grounds and can therefore speak with
authority on the military tactics of
the belligerent countries.

Northern Michigan Governments
Antiquated, Says Bureau Report

A dismal picture of northern Michi-
gan's cutover lumbering couities
struggling for economic recovery un-
der the burden of expensive and anti-
quated local government wash de-
scribed here today in a study by the
University of Michigan Bureau of
Due to the exhaustion of lumber
supplies and the lack of agricultural
resources, these counties have suf-
fered sharp decreases in population
and prosperity, the study found but
the old governmental structures have
never been adjusted to meet the new
As a result, Cheboygan County to-
day is existing with an over-abund-
ance of decentralized governmental
units. In some elections it has more
township offices to be filled than
there are eligible candidates. for. the
offices, the report said.
Cost Increased
Not only has the revenue from
lumbering and other industries
dropped during the last few years,
but the total cost of Cheboygan
County's local government has in-
creased, the study showed. "Most of
the increase has been incurred as the
result of increased relief and high-
way expenditures," the report said:
"and state and federal payments to
local governments were more than
tripled between 1924 and 1938 for
these purposes."
Prepared by Dr. Robert ,S. Ford,
Director of the Bureau of Govern-
ment, and Frank M. Landers, research
expert, the report is- entitled "Local
Government In Cheboygan County."
This county was selected for the
study because "its background as a
lumbering and unsuccessful farming
county is more or less typical of the
40 counties in the northern cut-over
Dr. Ford discovered that the popu-
lation trend in Cheboygan County
has followed closely the expansion
and decline of the lumber industry.
In 1910 the census showed 17,872 citi-

zens, but in 1930 this had slumped
to approximately 12,000, he said.
Situation Becomes Serious
"With the passing of the lumber
industry and the subsequent failure
of agriculture, employment opportuni-
ties in Cheboygan County became
rather scarce," Dr. Ford declared. "By
December, 1933, the situation had
become so serious that 7.196 persons,
or 62.5 per cent of the county's total
population were dependent upon some
form of public relief. Local govern-
ment could not cope with this prob-
lem, and it was forced to pass the
responsibility on to the state and
federal governments."
Increasing population led to the
creation of a large number of gov-
ernmental units, Dr. Ford's study
shows. On the basis of 1930 census
figures, Cheboygan County today has
one governmental unit for every 164
persons. Most of these units are
decentralized and are not responsible
to any other body except themselves.
"The MVichigan township," he said,
"is a leading example of an archaic
or obsolete governmental unit that
has lived beyond the period of its

riminology Students Inspect
Jackson Prison With Fuller
By S. R. WALLACE sending a man through the University
More than 90 criminology students here for one year is approximately
trailed two by two through Jackson the same as the upkeep of one prison-
er during the same period

prison Saturday behind Prof. Richard
C. Fuller in the sociology department's
annual inspection tour of the state
institution, the largest of its kind in
the world.
Instructed in advance to take spe-
cial note of the progress made by the
introduction in 1937 of a new classi-
fication system and the facilities for
this purpose, the group was conducted
through the large single cell block, a
unit housing 520 men, by Dr. Sidney
Moskowitz, prison psychologist, an
alumnus of the University of Michi-
gan. In addition to the tour of
grounds and buildings, the students
heard Dr. Moskowitz lecture on the
new system and the general proced-
ure in prison.
Dr. David Phillips, the prison psy-
chiatrist, discussed the importance
of interesting the public in penal re-
forms, and pointed out that college
graduates are needed in numerous
fields in the penal system. Explain-
ing that it costs the taxpayers $15,-
000 to $20,000 a day to keep the state
penitentiaries going, Dr. Phillips con-
cluded with the opinion that correc-
tional measures are vital in order to
rehabilitate convicts and lessen their
chances of return to prison. Dr.
Moskowitz added that the cost of

Jackson prison, the largest state
prison in the United States, with a
roll call of 5,600 men, is the only one
that provides single cells for every
man incarcerated, Dr. Moskowitz as-
serted during the tour. Passing
through the cell block, warned against
straggling, the students noted partic-
ularly the modernity of the structure,
the cells with hot and cold running
water and radios (if the inmates can
afford the 25 cents a month charge
for a radio) and the white nets spread
over some cells, indicating that the
occupant was training birds.
Dr. Moskowitz pointed out the soli-
tary confinement cell block which is
used for disciplinary measures, and
later in his talk declared that pun-
ishment in this manner for trouble-
makers and incorrigiblesis mild in
comparison to other prisons and for-
mer times. A tommy-gun and gas-
gun were brought in and their use

Philosophers Mourn
Oscar, Turtle Helper
The philosophy department is
steeped in gloom today. Oscar has
passed away. The dread hand of
death has descended and whisked
Oscar's soul off to join the World-
soul, and try as they might, it is hard
for Oscar's colleagues to take this
thing philosophically.
Oscar was one of the most promis-
ing members of the department. His
task was to assist Dr. William Fran-
kena and Dr. Paul Henle in illustrat-
ing Zeno's paradox of Achilles and
the tortoise. Oscar was the tortoise.
For two semesters before his death
Oscar lumbered across the desk in
front of Philosophy 34, always one
jump ahead of Achilles.
According to Dr. Frankena, Os-
car's closest friend in the department,
Oscar was the third turtle to hold the

Finest Sermon
Asks For Tolerant View
On Opinions Of Others
Speaking before an overflow audi-
ence in the -Methodist Church Sun-
day, genial, distinguished-looking
William Lyon Phelps declared that
Jesus' Sermon on the Mount was "the
greatest sermon in the world."
Professor Phelps, famed y for his
years of service at Yale University,
explained that he would not be able
to name the greatest novel, the
greatest play or the greatest piece of
music, but that there is no question
in his mind that Jesus' Sermon, as
given in the fifth chapter of Luke,
overshadows all others.
Emphasizing his points with con-
crete illustrations from the rich fund
of his personal experience, Professor
Phelps argued for the application of
the sermon's tenets to the problems
of today. He pleaded that Christ's
rules be substituted for the selfish-
ness and prejudices that prevent us
from seeing things from the other
man's point of view.
Striedieck To Address
Deutscher Verein Today
Dr. Werner F. Striedieck of the
German department will present the
fourth in a series of lectures spon-
sored by the Deutscher Verein at 8:15

Dr. Striedieck will discuss "Famous
German Scientists of the 19th cen-
tury," and he will point out interest-
ing facts in the lives of such out-
standing men as Leibig, Helmholtz,
Virchow, and Koch.

Ruthven Gives,
Intended Plan
For Expansion
(Continued from Page 1)
Navy officials about plans for the
establishment of a naval R.O.T.C.
unit here on the campus. He said
that these plans are now "almost
complete," and that an announce-
ment should be forthcoming in' the
near future.
Commenting briefly on the recent
increase in tuition rates, President
Ruthven said that the "raise was at
no time designed to cut attendance,"
and added that he was "definitely
opposed to any changes which would
tend to curtail the number of 'stu-
dents who attend the University."
As Michigan's seventh President,
Dr. Ruthven has achieved the reputa-
tion of being a quiet man who chooses
to remain in the background when-
ever it is possible. When he was
elected President of the University
in 1929 he had already spent a quar-
ter of a century on the campus.
He has worked up through the
ranks, from research assistant in
the museum of zoology to instructor
in zoology, to professor of zoology,
director of the University museums,
chairman of his department, dean
of administration, acting president,
and finally he became the chief ex-
ecutive of the University.
Dr. Ruthven was born April 1, 1882,
at Hull, Ia., and was graduated from
Morningside College, Morningside,
Ia., in 1903. He received his doctor's
degree at Michigan in 1906. His spe-
cialty was the study of reptiles.
Dr. Ruthven's ideal of a university
is a "quiet place for learned men to
work out the problems of mankind,
and for youths to become learned."
He once told a reporter, "I have io
desire to keep news away from the
newspapers, but I want the Univer-
sity run in such a way that there
won't be any news."

The talk, a University lecture spon-
sored by the geology department, is
open to the public.
A famed geologist, zoologist and.
geographer, Professor Behre began
his career as field geologist for the
Wisconsin Geologic Survey in 1916;
he has been part time assistant for
the U.S. Geologic Survey since 1921
and served as assistant in zoology
and geology at the University of Chi-
cago in 1917 and 1919-20.
He has acted as instructor in geol-
ogy at Lehigh University; cooperative
geologist for the Pennsylvania Geo-
logic Survey and has taught geology
at the University of Cincinnati and
Northwestern University. He was ap-
pointed chairman of Northwestern's
department of geography and geology
in 1933.
