oeS Hat Vote
Amendment For Shipping
Being Slowly Framed
WASHINGTON, Oct. 17. -()-
Casually, but directly, Senator Con-
nally (Dem.-Tex.) accused opponents
of the Administration neutrality bill
of "filibustering" against tht meas-
ure today during a spirited Senate
He made the accusation, as a play
on words and in a manner so off-
hand that it went virtually unnoticed
by the opposition group, and for the
time being it went unanswered.
It was the first time, however, the
word had been used by any Senator
associated with the leadership in the
fight for repeal of the arms embargo,
and thus was regarded as indicative
of what some of them believe they
may have to contend with before the
Neutrality Act reaches a final vote.
Meanwhile, the Administratio
'leadership was slowly framng an
amendment to the bill to permit
American vessels to carry cargoes to
any ports in the Pacific and Indian
oceans and possibly to ports in the
South Atlantic.
Chairman Pittman (Dem.-Nev.)
, announced that Democratic members
of the Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee would meet tomorrow to con-
sider a half dozen proposed amend-
ments to the shipping provision.

First University Lecturer
Lists Seven Necessary
Democratic Mentaliies
The development among our people
of a more adequate conception of
the role of a teacher is necessary be-
fore the schools, can teach democracy,
Prof. George S. Counts of Columbia
University told 400 students andt
teachers in the first of a series of
University lectures yesterday after-
noon in the Rackham School Audi-
Every democratic society needs to"
develop certain attitudes in its citi-
zens, Professor Counts advocated, and
listed seven democratic mentalities
which the school must support in
order to maintain the social system.
The mentalities necessary to┬░ foster
democracy are:
1. organization of the life and pro-
gram of school so as to develop a feel-
ing of competence and adequacy in
the student. 2, to create in the child
an allegiance to the democratic prin-
ciples of equality, liberty and free-
dom. 3, to develop systematically a
loyality to democratic processes of
free speech and movement. 4, to de-
velop a mentality marked by fairness
and integrity and perhaps even by a
scientific attitude:5, to develop a re-
spect for and appreciation of talent
and character, 6, to develop the fun-
damental sense of the obligation to
work. 7, to develop an enlightened
devotion to the good of 'the group,
community, to the nation, and to
the good of all mankind.
To develop these attitudes teach-
ers of free and independent spirit
must be chosen, Professor Counts
stated. Man must either learn how
to cooperate sufficiently to prevent
recurrence of depressions or he will
pass under the rule of dictatorship.

It is pathetic to think that Fin-
land has any chance of resisting suc-
cessfully any attempt by Russia to'
force her into an alliance by the use
of military action, Prof. John W.
Stanton of the history department
said yesterday.
Russia, he explained, is determined'
to continue the establishment of her
version of the American Monroe Doc-
trine by building up a series of alli-
ances with states which border her.

and Lithuania, he continued. Finland,

late bloc, and Russia must have herx

Moscow, Professor Stanton comment-
ed, would provide permission for oc-
cupation of Finnish land by Soviet
troops in the event of a war against
a power of western Europe-it need
contain no clause forcing the Finns
to fight for a Russian cause not af-
fecting Finnish territorial integrity.
Although Finland is a state which
could offer no effective resistance to
Russian invasion, Professor Stanton
went on, her government, afraid of
being overwhelmed by the Soviets, is
holding off acceptance of the Rus-
sian pact in hope that Germany or
Sweden will come to her aid. It is
difficult for the Finns to under-
stand, he said, why Germany, the na-
tion most likely to be affected by
Russian expansion and power, will
give the Moscow government such a
free hand in the Baltic area.
