As Chief Director
Of Bendix Corp.
NEW YORK, March 21. - QP) -
Vincent Bendix, 61-year-old inven-
tor-capitalist whose name has be-
come well-known in America's ma-
chine-age, today announced he had
resigned all connection with the or-
ganization he had headed for years,
the Bendix Aviation Corp.
Globe-trotter, known as a hail-fel-
low-well-met, the baldish Bendix who
had run away from his Moline, Ill.,
home at 16 to find his fortune, stood
in his apartment in New York's East
Fifties and said cryptically:
"I resigned as chairman of the
board of directors of the corporation.
My leaving was very friendly. I do
not wish to discuss any details until
Monday when I can issue a state-
ment which will explain exactly what
I want to say."
At the offices of the corporation,
one of the leading manufacturers of
aviation and automotive parts and
instruments and an important sup-
plier of war materials, an employe
"No one can say anything about it
until a statement is issued by the
president Ernest R. Breech. He is
out of town."

stockholders in the Bendix Corpora-
tion, succeeded Bendix as president
of the latter organization last Feb.

politics, religion, sciences and his-
tory. Through his positions as a
member of the Philippine Commission
in 1900 and as Secretary of the In-
terior in 1913, he was able to make
valuable additions to history.
Valuable Book
One of the most treasured books in
the collection made history with the
report of one Francisco Combes, who
wrote on the life and government
there, but also took especially valu-
able notes on the Negritos, common
200 years ago, but now non-existent
in Mindano. Another of more gen-
eral interest to the public is the an-
nual report of Maj. Gen. Arthur Mac-
Arthur, who was military governor in
Spanish rule utilized a code of laws
sanctioned by Charles I, of which
an 1841 copy of "Leyes de Indias"
is on exhibition. Evidently neither
Filipino nor insect respected them
as an amusing defense of their rule
had to be published to vindicate it,
and another copy of the laws is shown
to illustrate the devastating tunnels
white ants make in unprotected
Exploration, Observation
Continual exploration and observa-
tion was carried on by priests and
expeditions. Examples are represent-
ed with an account written in 1796-
1818 by Fr. Joaquin Martinez de
Zunigar and another later book by
a French scientific expedition in
1839. More recent is a 55 volume

Henry Ford insists that the nation
should continue to improve its edu-
cational program throughout the war,
because he believes we are fighting
solely to insure the future happiness
of American youth.
He told Dr. Arthur B. Moehlman of
the University that he had no sym-
pathy whatever for "some people"
who believe education is a luxury we
cannot now afford. If we can pay for
war, he insisted, we can also pay for
He urged the schools to try harder
than ever to give American youth
training for the kind of life they'
must lead after graduation-to teach
the girls to be good homemakers and
capable mariage partners, to teach
boys a vocation they enjoy.
