Urges United States of Europe

Saari To Rest Charges


Speech Ends
With Ovation
'Peace, Prosperity,
Justice' Will Result
THE HAGUE, May 9-()-Win-
ston Churchill today urged formation
of "The United States of Europe, both
of the East and the West," and de-
clared that this would unify the con-
tinent and bring "prosperity, justice
and peace."
In a half hour speech before the
Netherlands Parliament which ended
in a tumultuous ovation, the former
wartime British prime minister said:
"I see no reason why under the
guardianship of a world organiza-
tion there should not arise the
United States of Europe, both of
the East and West, which will unify
this continent in a manner never
known since the Roman Empire.
"It will give you prosperity, justice
and peace."
Churchill expressed the hope that
Britain's 20-year friendship treaty
with Russia "will prove one of the
securities of world peace," and said
it "in no way conflicts with other
At another point, speaking of na-
tionalism, Churchill assailed "tha
type of nationalism which would re-
duce us all to one uniform," and criti-
cized countries whose nationalism i
expressed "in a senseless urge to be
the biggest in the world."
Nlow leader of the conservative
opposition in the British .govern-
ment, Churchill declared that Bri-
tain "welcomes the proposed treaty
of friendship with France" and
gave voice to the wish that the
western democracies of Europe
msght draw together "in an even
closer associatiofi."
He followed this with a definition
of democracy.
"There are certain, simple, practi-
cal tests by which the virtue and
reality of any political democracy
may be measured," he said.
"Does the government in any coun-
try rest on a free constitutional basis,
assuring the people the right to vote
according to their will for whatever
candidates they choose? Is there the
right of free expression of opinion,
of free support, free opposition, free
advocacy, free criticism of the gov-
ernment of the day?"
Speaking slowly at the start and
later with quickening tempo,
Churchill asserted that one of the
first duties of the UnitedyNations
was to affirm the sanctity of the
smaller states.
Churchill praised the United States,
saying "had not our friends from be-
yond the ocean come with powerful
weapons to our aid, perhaps all of
Europe would have fallen to dark-
He deplored, however, the action
of the United States in refusing to
join the League of Nations. If the
United States had taken an active
part and if the League had been pre-
pared to use force to prevent Ger-
many's rearmament, there would
have been no need of another world
conflict, he declared.

Acquittal of New York Youth
Approved by Prof. A. E. Wood

Commenting on the acquittal of
Jack Turk, 14 year-cld New York boy
who nearly lost his life in the electric
chair, Prof. Arthur E. Wood, crimin-
ologist in the sociology department
expressed Katisfaction that the jury
had taken the law into its own hands.
"The adjudication of a fourteen
year-old in a criminal court is per-
fectly absurd," Wood said. New York
law makes execution of a person con-
victed for first degree murder man-
datory. "The idea of a 14 year-old
dying in the electric chair is too
horrible to contemplate."
The child's trial in a criminal court

was possible Wood said, because there
was a loophole in the juvenile court
laws allowing the juvenile court to
waive jurisdiction at the insistence
of the prosecutor.
The jury, in ordering that the boy
be retried in the juvenile court, and
that he be detained for correction un-
til he reaches a majority, did what
should have been done in the first
place, Wood said. Criminal courts
do not get social facts: they merely
determine whether a murder was
committed and what to do with the
criminal. Criminal courts he said
know only one sanction-punishment.


The first round of the bitter Demo-
cratic primairr ontst in thle Second
Michigan Congressional District end-
ed in a draw yesterday as Wayne
Saari, 24-year-old literary college
senior, announced that he will not
appeal a decision of the State Board
of Canvassers to the Supreme Court.
Saari had protested the validity of
the nominating petitions of his op-
ponent, William R. Kelley, but the
Board of Canvassers voted Monday
to accept them.
Validity Protested
Saari reported that Secretary of
State Dignan "inormed me that on
April 24 an Ann Arbor resident had
protested the validity of my petitions
on the grounds that I used non-rei-
dents to circulate them.
"On April 25 cr 26 I filed a protest
against my opponent's petitions be-
cause he had not maintained the legal
requirements designed to prevent
signers of his petitions from commit-
ting a legally punishable act."
Michigan state law requires that
various passages in a petition be
printed in certain specified type sizes
so that the passage warning signers
that they must not sign more than
one petition for the same office will
stand out prominently in 12-point
bold face type.
Small Size Type
Kelley's petitions carried this pas-
sage in type size smaller than that
required by law while other passages
were printed in larger than legal size.
"The result was that the important
passage was actually the smallest and
least noticeable in the entire peti-
tion," Saari said.
The Board of Canvassers, at a spe-
cial meeting in Lansing Monday,
voted to accept Kelley's petitions.
The petitions were accepted "large-
ly because they were signed in good
faith," Saari said.
No Appeal
"I had been notified by that time

that - petitions had been accepted
and I w"as noti in pursuing
the question any further. Although
the law specifies that appeals from
the Board go directly to the Supreme
!court, I will nlot appeail," hie declared.
Saari termed as "grossly inaccur-
ate" newspaper reports that he had
protested Kelley's petitions because
Kelley's name was printed in 10-point
type instead of 12-point type.

Rigid Standards E stablished
For Students of Early Days __

Entrance into the University
couldn't always be accomplished eas-
ily upon the presentation of a satis-
factory high school record. The hap-
less boys who came to Ann Arbor be-
tore 1871 were required to pass a
comprehensive examination before
they were allowed to enroll.
In that year, the beginnings of
what is now the Bureau of Coopera-
tion with Educational Institutions
were formed with the establishment
of a system of high school inspection.
A special examiner was appointed
by the Board of Regents and grad-
uates of schools which he judged sat-
isfactory were admitted without fur-
ther examination if their grades met
certain standards.
National System
The system proved so successful
that the examiner was invited to visit
schools throughout the country. Soon
the list of accredited schools stretched
from Boston to California. In later
years, other states inaugurated simi-
lar procedures and the University
limited its inspection to secondary
schools in Michigan
The work of examination was ex-
panded in 1932 to include inspection
of junior and senior colleges as well
as the high schools and the present
Bureau of Cooperation with Edu-
cational Institutions was established,
under the direction of George E. Car-
rothers, who Mill occupies that posi-
tion. The work of the bureau today,
according to Dr. Carrothers, consists
of knowing thoroughly every educa-
tional institution in Michigan, with
special reference to the particular
field of specialization of each.
Pioneer University
The studiescarried on by the Bur-
eau now clearly show the distance
traveled since the establishment of
a university was proposed in the state
constitution which nwent into effect
in 1837. One of the main problems
connected with the new institution
was that of securing adequately pre-
pared students. Clearly a pioneer uni-
versity in the wilderness of the west-
ern reserve could not hope to attract
graduates of eastern academies in
sufficient numbers to guarantee a
stable enrollment.
Since public schools were not then

in existence a unique plan was set-
up, providing for branches of the Uni-
versity throughout the state. These
branches prepared students to enter
the University, with funds for feeder
schools being appropriated by the
These schools were discontinued
with the establishment of public
schools through the state, but the
University would have been helpless
in recruiting its early freshmen
classes, small as they were, without
them. They also served to turn the
attention of the peole to the slowly
growing state University.
Political Groups
To Join Forces
WASHINGTON, May 9 - (/P) -
Three political organizations plan to
coordinate their hitherto separate
campaigns to elect "progressive" can-
It was announced tonight that the
CIO Political Action Committee, the
National Citizens Political Action
Committee, and the Independent Cit-
izens Committee of the Arts, Sci-
ences and Professions will meet here
Saturday to form an alliance.
All these organizations have de-
clared war on what they call "reac-
tionary" office-seekers and office-
holders. They say they favor candi-
dates pledged to carry forward the
foreign and domestic policies of the
late President Roosevelt.
The CIO PAC is headed by Sidney
Hillman, the Citizens PAC by Dr.
Frank Kingdon, and the third com-
mittee by Harold L. Ickes, former
Secretary of the Interior.
