Student Article
Of Pacifism
Highlighted by an article, "Is the
Pacifist Position Tenable" by Robert
Bessey, Grad., the first issue of "Con-]
troversy," the quarterly publication
of the Student Religious Association,
was released yesterday.
According to Bessey "pacif' m is a
philosophy-a way of life-unded
on certain principles which remain
constant, even in this changing
world." He admits that pacifism of-
fers no panacea for saving the world.
Bessey explains the principles of
pacifism as being the beliefs in in-
dividual personality and its ultimate
goodness, in the conviction that no
end can 'be achieved with means not
compatible with that end, and in
the willingness to suffer rather than
to inflict suffering.,
Also included in\ the fall number
of "Controversy" is "A Treatise on
the Concept of Value" by Richard H.
Fisher, '43, pointing out that the
principal factor in religion is the
discovery, appraisal and reorganiza-
tion of primary human values.
The religion of Buddhism is clari-
fied by Ubol Guvanasen, Grad. Gu-
vanasen maintains that, the four
noble truths of Buddha are (1) all life
is suffering, (2) desire is the cause
of suffering, (3) cessation of desire
ends suffering and (4) an eight-fold
path for the suppression of desire.
This path includes right belief, right
aspiration, right speech, right actions,
right liveihood, right effort, right
mindfulness and right contemplation.
Other features of the magazine are
a discussion of Christianity and an
analysis of ethics in the modern
world order. "Controversy" is edited
by John A. Houston and John F.

Assure Clean
Shaven Mugs
Every time the Wolver nes meet
the boys from Minnesota, there is a
little brown jug in attendance, to be
presented with appropriate ceremony
to the winner of the game, if Michi-
gan manages to come out on top.
But this year, things are going to
be different. Instead- of fighting forI
just one little brown jug, the teams
will be running over each other for
little individual jugs.
For this year's annual battle a
State Street clothing store has a spe-
cial offer for both the Michigan and
}Minnesota teams, an award of little
brown jugs to the eleven men on the
field whose team scores the first
Nor are the jugs mere show pieces,
devoid of use lout tor a what-not.
Theywill contain eithershaving lo-
tion, tale or shaving cream. That's
for the first touchdown.
Now let us suppose for the sake of
argument that, the Golden Gophers
manage to get across the goal line
first. In that case, each man on their
team who is on the fieldt will receive
Then, the Wolverines score. Their
eleven on the field will also receive
a jug. Now, Michigan scores again.
The team will be supplied with an-
other jug apiece, adding to the first.
If the boys received shaving cream
for the first six points, shaving lotioln,
or talc will be the contents of the
second brown jug.
As a matter of fact, if either team
can score enough touchdowns, they
will be able to amass an entire set of
shaving and after-shave equipment,
with the odds going in favor of the
60-minute men.
The Wolverine team has the hea-
vier beards, they ought to have the
best incentive.

Corrective Measures
"Students with speech defects owe
it to themselves to make use of the
Speech Clinic's services," Prof. H.
Harlan Bloomer said yesterday.
"They will find," Prof. Bloomer
continued, "that if they attend to
their speech defects early in their
college life, their difficulties will be
cleared up in a short time, and they
will not be hindered in their senior
year by the necessity of having to
erase their defects before gradua-
Students who displayed speech de-
fects in the examination given at
registration are being notified ths
week in order that, appointments for
further examinations can be made.
Only sixty cases can be taken care
of a week, so students are requested,
to make, application at once.
The work of the Speech Clinic is
divided into eight parts. The diffi-
culties taken care of are lisping, ar-
ticulatory defects, stuttering,' sound
substitutions, loss of language func-
tion, suffering from cleft paJaate, ex-
treme foreign accent, and delayed
speech in children.
Professor Bloomer emphasized that
there was no relationship between
intelligence and speech defects. Since
speech defects however are closely
allied with general health, the Speech
Clinic works directly with Health
"No student should feel any shame
or inferiority at having a speech de-
fect," Professor Bloomer concluded,
"since only a few weeks training at
the Clinic will usually clear up any

Witt Advocates
Anti-Nazi Move
ASU Meeting Is Addressed
By NationalSecretary
Advocating an immediate attack
on the European continent and the
repeal of the neutrality act, Bert
Witt, national executive secretary of
the American Student Union, ad-
dressed a meeting yesterday at Unity
Hall. r
Witt stated that the fall of Mos-
cow to the German armies is a step
in the march on Ann Arbor. America
and' Britain should attack Europe
and force Hitler to fight a two front
war now, he continued.
Every hour tiat we delay the re-
peal of the neutrality act, Hitler
gets stronger, Witt also declared. He
went on to say that the battle of
production in the UnitedStates
would be won on the college cam-
pus through the teaching of certain
skills needed for America's defense,
the understanding of what we are
fighting for, and military training
for both male and female students.
Witt concluded by saying that the
ASU stands for defense, support of
President Roosevelt and aid for
countries defying Hitlerism.
Keeler Returns From Trip
Prof. Hugh E. Keeler of the me-

he attended the program committee
meeting of the University of Michi-
gan Club of that city. He was official
representative of the University at
the affair.

Alleges Demotion
Is 'Squeeze Play'.
LANSING, Oct. 23.-(P)-Hint of
a "squeeze play" in transfer of a sales
tax department employe to a lower
classified position without salary re-
duction was aired before the Civil
Service Appeal Board today.
Norman McBain, formerly a super-
intendent of junior auditors for the
department in Detroit, complained
to the board he was transferred to a
field accountant position without ap-
parent reason. He held that although
his salary was not reduced, he lost
executive ranking.
Thomas J. Wilson, state personnel
director, said the Civil Service Com-
mission was not notified of the change]
and that it should have involved a
re-classification of position and a
lower salary.
"This apparently is a case of some-
bosdy being pushed around or an error
of omission on the part of the de-
partment head," Wilson asserted. He
said "other instances" might exist
where transfers of the same nature
were made to "squeeze out somebody."
A sales tax department spokesman
said McBain was transferred "in the
interest of his health" and that the
department was unaware of the re-
quirement to list job changes which
lmight mean reclassification.

Language Department decided to

The language is now being studied}
by Earl W. Thomas, former member
of the Romance Language Depart-
ment, who is working in Brazil on
his doctor's dissertation as the Bra-
zilian-United States Fellow.
The new professors teaching the
course here are Prof. LeRoy E. Colby
and Prof. Alonzo G. Stanford who
have recently returned from Para-
mie, Wyo., where they spent nine
weeks in concentrated study of the
Portuguese language at the Institute
for Intensive Training in Portuguese
and Spanish. This Institute is part
of the American Counsel of Learned;
Societies which, in turn, is supported
by the Rockefeller Foundation.
The Institute was divided into two
parts with thirty 'students studying
Portuguese and ,thirty Spanish.
Portuguese conversation was aided by
five native Brazilians and occasional
Brazilian visitors.
Professor Colby received his Bache-
lor'sN degree at Ohio University and
iis Master's at Michigan. Before
studying at Paramie he taught high
school French and Spanish. As well
as his course here, Professor Colby
is teaching Portuguese in an exten-
sion class in Detroit. This has gotten
a considerable response.
Professor Stanford is a graduate
)f Elbian College where he received
his Bachelor's degree. He took his
Master's at Iowa and taught at that
university for two years.
