Brown Uroes'
Of Acconting
State System Outmoded,
Auditor General States
At Accountants' Meeting
The present accounting system
used by the state of Michigan in1
handling financial dealings with
local governmental bodies must be
brought up to date to- handle new
problems in the allocation of..funds,;
Vernon J. Brown, Auditor-General
of Michigan, told more than 200
members of the Michigan Association
of Certified Public Accountants at
a luncheon yesterday in the League.
The gradual centralization of gov-
ernmental authority in the state was
brought about originally by the coun-;
ty governments' raising property1
taxes to too high a level, Brown, one'
of the featured speakers at the 15th
annual Michigan Apcounting Confer-I
ence, explained. 'The state ahthorP
ties, by means of : indire't '.taxes,
have been able to quiet the protests
of the taxpayers and at the-same time
hand an increased amount of funds
to the county officiaas, he con-;
Anew system, he concluded, one
which can give everyone, from tax-
payer to administrator, a day-by-
day, understandable account for all
public money which has been dis-
bursed, must be developed.
The Conference opened with two
ropnd table discussions at 9:30 a.m.
yesterday in the Rackham Building.
The \ first considered "Some Prob-
lems of Governmental Accounting,"
while the other took up "Practical
Auditing Procedures for Inventories
and Receivables."

Opera Revival
Im1mediate Appoin tment
Of Committee'Chairmen'
To Start Mimes Work
The final barrier to the revival of
tradition-laden Union Operas was re-
moved yesterday when the Union Fi-
nance Committee approved a budget
for a production this year.
Work on the Opera will begin im-
mediately, according to Don Tread-
well, '40, president of the Union.
Chairmen of the costumes, 'music,
scenery and properties, dance, make-
up, personnel and publicity commit-
tees will be named within a fi:w days.
Plans for the Opera were begun
early this semester after a two-day
survey had indicated that there wo!ild
be sufficient talent for a productior>.
When more than 250 men registered
for participation in the Opera, the
Union Board, of Directors approved
the revival attempt and'a'budget com-
mittee, under the direction of James
Halligan, '40F&C, and Charles R. Mix,
'40; began Work on a budget.X
"Attempts to revive the Union
Opera failed in 1934 and 1935," Tread-
*ell stated, "and it seems certain that
if this year's production is to be suc-
cessful the support of the entire cam-
pus must be behind it."
Founded in 1907, the Union Opera
became one of the most popular cam-
pus institutions. During its heyday
as many as 500 students tried out
yearly for its choruses, orchestras,
casts and committees, and several
shows Went on tour throughout the
country. This is the third attempt
at revival of the Opera since it was
abandoned in 1930.
The history of the Union and the
Opera are bound up closely together.,
It was the Opera that supplied funds
for the extension of the Union.
During the 23 years of its existence,
the Opera had a gross income of
more than $800,000, resulting in a'
net profit of nearly $150,000, and
played before audiences totaling ap-
proximately 400,000 persons.

"The danger of a new crusade on
the part of the American press to
make the world safe for democracy
is very slight," Jay Allen, noted for-
eign correspondent, told the closing
session of the 10th Annual Parent
Education Institute yesterday in -the
Lecture Hall of the Rackham Build-
Newspapers are playing up the
Communist threat, he said, in order
to cover their current policies of ap-
peasing Hitler. The reason: the
American press, according to Allen,
fears the threat of communism far
more than that of fascism.
In the World War, Allen declared,
we fought to make the world safe
for democracy and succeeded. He
pointed out that the Central Euro-
pean peoples were freed, the League
of Nations was organized, France
instituted democratic reforms-all
these were steps toward a fuller real-
ization of democracy, but "democracy
was not made safe for .the world."
French manufacturers still hated the
Germans,. he explained, and to cap
it all, Hitler was regarded as "the
savior of the Western World."
If the United States is supposed to
be a "push over" for propaganda,
Allen explained, America would have
entered the. war. on the side of the
Central Powers because Germany and
her allies spend more money on pro-
paganda here than Britain and
America went into the war, on the
other - hand he said, because the
people believed "the ideals represent-
ed by the Central Powers were direct-
ly opposed to individual liberties and

Proposal ee
President Planning Relief
Program To Aid Seamen
Hurt ByNeutrality Act
WASHINGTON, Nov. 1Q. -(_)-
The proposal to transfer eight United
States Lines vessels to the Panama
flag. caused 'new disagreements .in
Roosevelt ranks today, but White
House callers predicted that the
President ultimately would approve.
the plan.
Meanwhile Mr. Roosevelt disclosed
he was working on a far-reaching.
program to afford relief to many of
the thousands of seamen whose liveli-
hood is threatened by the fact that
the Neutrality Act bars American
ships and American crews from the
war zones. The program includes
sending, the seamen to training
schools at government expense, giv-
ing them unemployment insurance
and other relief.
The flag transfer proposal, made
by the United States Lines, drew
from Rep. Sam Rayburn (Dem.-Tex.)
! House ,Democratic leader, the flat
statement "I'm opposed to it." Sen-
ator Pittman (Dem.-Nev.), chair-
man of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee and leader of the fight
for the new Neutrality Act, asserted
that "our government should be"
super-cautious in subjecting itself to
any criticism, or even suspicion, of
evasion of neutrality."
Previously Secretary Hull had op-
posed the plan, which would enable
the ships to carry on trade with
areas forbidden to American-flag
vessels. The Maritime Commission
has favored the proposal but has
held up a final decision pending a
verdict by Mr. Roosevelt.
Today the President called in three
men for a discussion of the human
elements of the problem after an-
nouncing that he saw no legal objec-
tions. The three were leaders of
maritime labor - Joseph Curran,
head of the National Maritime Union
(CIO), Joseph Ryan, of the Inter-
national Longshoremen's Association
'(AFL) and Matthew Dushane, of the
Seafarers International Union. After
the conference, Curran said:
"There is a definite indication that
the ships will be transferred,"

Edison States That Flaws
Can Be Corrected
WASHINGTON, Nov. 10. -(AP)-
The Navy officially admitted today
that some of its newest destroyers
lacked sufficient stability and that
faults had developed m the construc-
tion of certain cruisers.
However, Charles Edison, Acting
Secretary of the Navy, said in re-
sponse to an inquiry from Sen. Arth-
ur H. Vandenberg (Rep.-Mich.) that
measures already had been taken
"which are fully adequate to correct
the unsatisfactory features." -
The destroyers, Edison said, were
found to be overweight and to lack
the stability "considered necessary
for satisfactory service operation."
The steel stern posts of several 10,060
ton heavy cruisers of the Louisville-
Chester class cracked, but they were
replaced years ago, he explained.

Favoring a policy of cash and carry
trade, increase of armaments and of
keeping American ships out of dan-
ger zones, the campus response to a
recent Bureau of Student Opinion
poll corresponded in many respects
with the current trend in administra-
tion policy,
Opinion on war trade policy was
divided as follows in the question:

the campus ROTC unit, in comment-
ing on these figures, agreed that men
with military training may be expect-
ed to favor defense measures because,
he said, they are in a position to see
the vital need for adequate defense.
"Men in the U.S. Army are not "fire-
eaters' as so often depicted, but they
do realize that the present par is
a world problem, not only European.
and that safety lies in strength."
