NegroStudies
Professor At Northwestern
Will Discuss Findings
Of LongInvestigation
"The Negro in the New World" is
the topic to be discussed by Melville
J. Herskovits, chairman of the an-
thropology department of Northwest-
ern University, in a University lec-
ture to be held Friday in the Rackham
Amphitheatre.
Professor Herskovits went to Lon-
don on a« Guggenheim Fellowship
and wrote a book entitled "The Eco-
nomic Life of Primitive Peoples." He
has made field trips to all the areas
he describes in his works.
Author of two volumes on the Da-
homeans of West Africa, he has ex-
tensively studied the Negroes of the
West Indies, Dutch Guiana, West
Africa, and the United States to dis-
cover all the aspects of their back-
ground and the conditions of their
introduction into America.
His studies include not only the
biological and anthropmetrical as-
pects of the Negro problem but the
cultural and sociological as well .,

Tapping Goes
South Seeking
A Busy Rest'
Tell of taking a busman's holiday.
T. Hawley Tapping, the general sec-
retary of the Alumni Association who
eats luncheon in Kalamazoo, and
supper in Chicago and Sunday din-
ner on the train half the weeks of his
life, will leave tomorrow for his an-
nual vacation-and in the course of
the trip stop off at better than half a
dozen Alumni Clubs scattered from
Pittsburgh to West Palm Beach.
When he gets to West Palm Beach,
which is supposedly his vacation
land, he goes in for a swim, eats a
banana salad on the beach, and starts
back to Ann Arbor-stopping off, of
course, to see the Alumni Sailors at
St. Petersburg, the naval architects
at Newport News, the alumni politi-
cos in Washington, and finally the
old business men in Detroit, gradu-
ates of '01 to '39.
He will be back in Ann Arbor by
the time studies are resumed in the
new year and will be permitted to rest
until the University of Michigan

By ROBERT MANTHO
As far as Latin America is con-
cerned. the only way Pan-American
solidarity can be achieved is for
Germany to land or threaten to land
Nazi troops in the Western Hemis-
phere, Prof. Preston E. James of the
geography department declared in
an interview yesterday.
"We in the United States fail to
realize that the word democracy-or
dictatorship-cannot be applied to
Latin America in the same sense that
we know and understand it." Prof.
James went on to say.
Because we do not comprehend
the peculiar situation existing in
South America today, we are all the
more ready to accept confused ac-
counts of insidious Nazi penetrations
in that region. he added.
Before we can talk of Pan-Amer-
ican solidarity, Prof. James empha-
sized, we must not overlook the one
essential fact that South America is
united on one thing and one thing
alone-political independence. With
this exception, the various South
American countries are violently jea-
lous of each other and are looking

Protection of University Property
Against Theft:
Whenever it becomes known that
property has been stolen or is miss-
ing, notice should be given with ut-
most promptness at the Business Of-
fice, Room 3, University Hall. This
applies to articles 5wned by the in-
stitution or owned privately.
For the protection of property it
is important that doors and windows
be locked, inside doors as well as out-
side doors, when rooms are to be left
unoccupied even for a brief period.
The building custodians cannot be
responsible for conditions after the
hours when they are on duty or when
persons with keys to buildings unlock
doors and leave them unlocked. It
is desirable that department heads
make a careful check two or three
times a year of all keys to quarters
under their charge, to make sure that
keys have not been lost and are not
in the hands of persons no longer re-
quiring their use. It is strictly con-
trary to University rules to have dup-
licate keys made or to lend keys is-
sued for personal use.
A reward of $50 is offered to any
person for ipformation that directly
or indirectly leads to the apprehen-
son of thieves on University prem-
ises.

Notice: Attention of all concernea
and particularly of those having of-
fices in Haven Hall, or the Western

out for their own individual rights
primarily.
Pan-American solidarity looks con-t
ceivable to us today because South<
America thinks she is being threat-I
ened by an invasion of her shores.
In view of this fact, the South Amer-
ican countries have allowed their
separate jealousies temporarily to
recede into the background so as to
prepare themselves for a united de-
fense of their independence in case
an invasion should materialize, Prof.
James declared.
In answer to a question concerning'
the recent findings made by several
reporters on a "Caribbean Snoop
Cruise" (an article in Reader's Di-
gest), Prof. James saw nothing "in-
sidious" about the alleged Nazi pene-
tration in Latin America.
"Since South America cannot find
a market for her products in the
United States, naturally she must
turn elsewhere," he stated. "Ger-
many is merely making a bid for
that market; and South America
does not want to incur Germany's ill
will because she must look out for
her welfare as a nation."
At present, however, Prof. James
continued, Great Britain is supply-
ing the market for South American
goods. It seems probable that only
with the defeat of England will
South America turn to Germany and
the barter system as a market for
her produce, he concluded.
portion of the Natural Science Build-
ing is directed to the fact that park-
ing of cars in the driveway between
these two buildings is prohibited be-
cause it is at all times inconvenient
to other drivers and to pedestrians
on the diagonal and other walks. If
members of your family call for you,
especially at noon when traffic both
on wheels and on foot is heavy, it
is especially urged that the car wait
for you in the parking space adjacent
to the north door of University Hall.
Waiting in the driveway blocks traf-
fic and involves confusion, incon-
venience and danger just as much
when a person is sitting in a car as
when the car is parked empty.

Library Is Named
As Innocent Party
In McKay Probe
How the University library was
named as an innocent party in one
of the indictments against Frank D.
McKay. Republican national commit-
teeman, last week was revealed in a
recent article appearing in the De-
troit News.
A Federal grand jury charged that
McKay and a group of individuals
had used tile mails to defraud in
connection with a Grand Rapids
waterworks project. The defendants
are alleged to have caused an adver-
tisement giving notice of the public
sale of the waterworks bonds to be
placed in the Grand Rapids Herald.
A copy of the Herald was then sent
through the mails to the University
library, the indictment asserts.
The article pointed out the Depart-
ment of Justice had used this legal
technicality for the first time in
Louisiana when fraud convictions
were obtained on the basis of an
advertisement in a newspaper which
had been mailed to the Louisiana
State University library.
