By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30 - Maj.
Gen. Sherman Miles said today the
Army high command always had
considered attacks on Hawaii and
the Panama Canal about "equally
likely" in case of war with Japan.
That was so "inherent in the situ-
ation," he declared, that he had never
thought for a moment before Dec. 7,
1941, that Pearl Harbor's defenders
were not fully on the alert.
Miles acknowledged before the Sen-
ate-House investigating committee,
however, that Hawaii was not men-
tioned in any of the evaluations and
forecasts he prepared as head of
military intelligence.
Short Not Informed
In response to questions from Ger-
hard Gesell, assistant committee
counsel, Miles said he knew on Dec.
6 that the Japanese consul in Hawaii
was destroying his records but did
not inform Lt. Gen. Walter C. Short,
Army commander at Pearl Harbord
when the Japanese struck.
Such secret information ordinar-
ily was handled by the Navy because
its code was regarded as "more se-
cure," he explained, and "we had
every reason to believe that any Navy
message to Hawaii would be promptly
given to the Army."
Miles was still in the witness chair
when the committee recessed until
Monday. He is to be followed by Vice-
Admiral Theodore S. Wilkinson, for-
mer director of naval intelligence.
Islands Essential
Miles said there were "very cogentr
reasons" why the Japanese would
want to occupy the Hawaiian islands,
one being that the United States
would have to recapture them before
undertaking any major Pacific of-
fensive.
Miles was emphatic that there was
no reason why he should believe the
Army in Hawaii was not alert against
any type of attack.
Two messages of Nov. 27 from
Washington to Hawaii advised that
negotiations with Japan appeared
ended and that hostile action might
ensue.
Miles, who was assistant chief of
staff for military intelligence, also
told the committee: The Army gen-
eral staff "very much feared" an
attack might come at 1 p. m. Dec. 7
-the hour when Japanese peace ne-
gotiators delivered their note to the
state department - but had no in-
formation where the attack might be
made.

Gov. Kelly Discusses
Youth Conservation
Prof. Howard Y. McClusky of the
School of Education is in Washing-
ton, D. C., participating in a pro-
gram on youth conservation, spon-
sored by the General Federation of
Women's Clubs.
Feature of the program was a ra-
dio address delivered last night by
Governor Kelly on the subject of
"Youth Conservation in Michigan."
Prof. McClusky has been aiding
state officials in the development of
the plans for Home and Family Week,
which, according to Governor Kelly's
official proclamation, will occur the
week of Dec. 2. Special programs on
this theme will be provided by
schools, churches, and clubs in many
Michigan communities. Prof. Mc-
Clusky will return to Ann Arbor Sun-
day.

popular level, friction may still per-
sist between victors and conquered
nations. This, Dr. Carr fears, is hap-

pening in Europe and the Orient. War
has accomplished the purpose of
eliminating disagreeable situations
between nations alone, while molecu-
lar struggles among the peoples of
the world still continue.
Up to a certain point, people of the
world will control their adjustment
processes by maintaining a level of
routine. This, however, will eventually
be disrupted by social friction and
psychological tension. Peaceful re-
duction of the opposing systems
thereby created is on a temporary
basis, Dr. Carr emphasized, final re-
lief coming only through conflict.
The world is now struggling to de-
velop an institution that will elim-
inate the tension and friction pro-

Small Power Plant
Required Impractical
"Information which we have at the
present time makes us skeptical of
reports that the British have devel-
oped an atomic-powered automobile,"
Dr. Ernest F. Barker, chairman of the
Department of Physics, said today.
Either the report was sensational
or the British have discovered some
method of handling atomic reaction
with which we are not yet familiar,
Dr. Barker continued. Our informa-
tion seems to indicate that the small
power plants required to run such
automobiles are almost out of the
question.
First of all, Dr. Barker pointed out,
the process of atomic disintegration
produces dangerous radiations which
will penetrate layers of metal a foot
or two thick. Secondly, radio-active
materials are produced which might
easily be fatal to a person coming in
contact with them. It would be neces-
sary, therefore, to enclose the uran-
ium in a very heavy box and to find
some way of disposing of the products
of disintegration.
The small power plants necessary
to run a car would be ruled out since
the reaction will proceed spontan-
eously only when the volume occupied
by the active substance is larger than
a certain minimum size, Dr. Barker
said.
If, however, such a small power
plant could be developed, its power
would have to be utilized to run ma-
chinery like a steam engine or an
electric motor. The purchase price of
such a car would probably be high,
but it could be run very economically
for a long time. In style, Dr. Barker
remarked, an atomic-powered auto-
mobile would probably resemble our
present cars.

A seven-point program in speech1
rehabilitation is being conducted for
six weeks under the direction of Prof.
Ollie L. Backus at the Speech Clinic.
The program includes a six-week1
intensive veterans' training project#
and regular speech correction classest
for University students who receive1
training for an hour daily at the
clinic. An intensive training course
for stutterers, including several stu-
dent veterans, meets for six hours a
day.
Two groups of children also receive
instruction at the clinic. Since loss
of hearing removes the primary
means most persons have for learn-
ing to speak, children who cannot
hear require special instruction in
lip reading, acoustic training, speech
correction and socialization, which
are necessary to enable them to learn
to talk. Others, who can hear but
have speech defects, receive aid for,
their particular difficulties.
Instruction for Aphasics
Nine aphasic patients, including
five veterans with head injuries, must
relearn to speak and have their re-
maining speech abilities reintegrated
into speech patterns. These persons
have lost their speech function to
various degrees because of brain
lesions.

Gamblers Get Jitters
NEW YORK, Nov. 30-(/P)-Big-
time gamblers are so jittery about
hold-ups that they have taken to the
use of scrip in denominations of
$500, $1,000 and $5,000 for payoffs,
police reported today.

promise that aphasics who were for-
merly considered unable to reacquire
speech are now doing this through
clinical training. Patients not only
receive drill in producing conversa-
tional speech patterns, but also in-
struction in group classes enabling
them to apply the patterns under
varying degrees of social pressure.
Another group of patients are com-
pleting their rehabilitation work.

LANSING, Nov. 30 -(P)- A whole-
sale physical and administrative re-
organization of the troubled Boys Vo-
cational School was recommended to-
day in reports being compiled of a
survey of the institution by state
agencies.
The survey, being drawn together
by the state Civil Service Commission
for Governor Kelly and the state
Juvenile Institute Commission, con-
demned the institution as being little
better than a penitentiary, holding
boys without adequate training in a
drab, repressive atmosphere not con-
ducive to improving their citizenship
or character.
Segregation Suggested
Proposals to move the present 90-
year-old institution to about four
rural locations where boys of varying
character could be segregated previ-
ously were voiced by experts studying
the school.
The surveys declared that a full-
time psychiatrist with adequate as-
sistance should be employed, that ed-
ucation should be geared to the men-
tal capacities of the inmates, that vo-
cational training be emphasized more
and that recreation and "home" life
be substantially improved.
Too Much Punishment
The cottages, or dormitories, in
which upwards of 500 boys live, were
described as drab and dreary, with
no home atmosphere and where re-
pression and punishment appeared
to be the major concerns of the
staff.
At least one-third of the inmates
now are receiving no education, the
survey said, while 30 per cent of the
boys have speech defects and 50 per
cent retarded in reading, with little
use being made of modern teaching
methods to overcome those handi-
caps.
The surveyors reported that little
use is being made. of the school's ex-
cellent gymnasium and swimming
pool and that little physical educa-
tion is given the boys despite good
facilities.

Tomorrow's activities at Ann Arbor
churches will include morning serv-
ices and social and study meetings of
