ndividual Differences Make Impos-
sible Same Response of MI
Persons to One Stimulus
That most of our advertising is
ad because it presupposes a vic-
im was the conclusion of Prof.
oohn L. Brumm, head of the de-
artment of journalism, in his lee-
tre on "The Strategy of Advertis-
ig," yesterday afternoon. The
ractice of stalking the prospect-
with all the huntsman's cunning
mploys a misconception of human
ature. In an attempt to accom-
lish its aim of evoking in the
rospective buyer a desire and en-
ouraging this desire to action, ad-
ertising has forsaken its proper
ole of a handmaiden of truth for
he tactics of the highwayman.
Faulty Stimuli
Advertising today is neither an
adustry nor a business. It is a
iode ol behavior. It is assured of
to audience, but must work on
lind faith. Prospective buyers be-
ome "sales resisters," reluctant,
rary, for whose capture strategy
iust be used. 50,000 prominent
dvertisers spend. annually $1,000,-
00,000 and employ 600,000 persons
n the effort to persuade 90,000,000
onsumers to buy their articles. Yet
heir entire theory is based on the
alse assumption that man is by
ature instinctive, and that there-
ore all men will respond in the
ame way to the same stimulus.
Treaties on advertising go so
ar as to enumerate the most im-
ortant instincts, listing definite
esponses that can be confidently
redicted for them. But nature
nd experience have not simplified
ian's behavior to that extent. In
eality instinct determines only the
east important of his reactions, for
.e lives not in a world of nature
ut one of an artificially set stage.
We learn -most of our behavior,
nd because what we become de-
ends on our capacity to learn, it
esults that the nervous adjustment
t every -individual produces a dif-
Brent response to a definite stimu-'
us than that any other indivi-
ual would produce. For this rea-

Furthermor e,the practice of
nitating what has already been
one keeps the fruitless methods in

ut who can say which, if any, of
he many factors entering into the
lan were the cause of its success?
The explanation of all this lies
i the fact that the position of ad-

Miss Thelma Lewis, who appear-
ed on the second of the summer
Faculty Concerts, is one of the well
known singers in Ann Arbor. In
an interview with Miss Lewis she
said of her musical training, "My
first training was received in my
home under my father." Miss Lewis
comes from a musical family, her
father being a choral director and
her sister an organist and pianist
as well as a teacher.
The voice training of this young
singer has been under Madame Bi-
dola in Cleveland, under Earl G.
Killeen, of the University of Minne-
sota, and with Theodore Harrison,
of Ann Arbor, for the past five
The voice of Miss Lewis is a
dramatic soprano and she appear-
ed as the High Priestess in Aida
when it was presented during the
May Festival of 1928. She also sang
in "Elijah" in 1926 and again on
Sunday night, August 4, at the
outdoor bowl at Interlocken.
Miss Lewis received her Artist's
Diploma and Bachelor of Music de-
grees in voice in 1927 and 1928,
and is now a very successful teach-
er in the University School of Mu-
sic and soloist in the Congrega-
tional Church as well as doing much
concert work. She was soloist at
the First Congregational Church of
Akron before coming to Ann Arbor.

"The next step in education must
be to develop a coheent philosophy
of life and education," said Dr.
Henry Boyd Bode, professor of edu-
cation at Ohio State university in
an address before the Men's and
Women's Education club's banquet
last night at the League.
Dr. Bode, who spoke on "The
Next Step in Education," received
his bachelor of arts degree at this
University in 1897, and since that
time has been professor of philos-
ophy at the University of Wiscon-
sin, and University of Illinois. He
is one of the foremost exponents
and critics of philosophies of edu-
cation in the United States today.
Explaining that today we live
'in an age of science, Dr. Bode
pointed out that this very science
has taken away the props of au-
thority and tradition and leaves us
to confront a spiritual situation to
which we must adjust ourselves.
Some time ago, he said, the church
furnished a philosophy of life
which resembled a yard stick and
was adequate for man in all of
his living and even into his dying
hours, and through this philosophy,
man's whole life found expresssion.
Complexity of Standards
Today, he continued, we have a
complexity of standards by which'
we live, no one of them accurate
and all of them being confused.
There is that type of person now
on the wane, who appeals to divine
authority for their philosophy of
life; there is the person who justi-
fies his action on the grounds of
personal rights and liberties; and
then there is the type of individual
who looks only to the common or
social good to guide his course. But,
Dr. Bode points out, no one of these
predominates. It is the duty of
the school, he maintains, to ac-
quaint the student with these con-
flicts so that he will later be able
to choose a definite philosophy for
Organized Curriculum Needed
Man's ability to control his en-
vironment through science is not
due to any change in his itelligence
he asserted, but that intelligence
has learned to devise certain con-
trols, differentiating between the
sound and unsound inference.
"Educators must take more ac-
count of the need for a guiding
philosophy of life," he emphasized.
The curriculum should be organiz-
ed, Dr. Bode said, so as to contrib-
ute to the formation of a philos-
ophy of life. Schools today have
no program, no objective, and they
do their best to cover up this in-
sufficiency, he asserted.
Psychologist of Little Aid
In devising a plan of education
the psychologist, who should be
constructive in its organization, is
of little assistance inasmuch as he
is constantly changing his mind as
to what the process of learning is,
and moreover, he continued, whatj
he has told us of learning is wrong
or at most worthless.
Comparing the American and
foreign views of American euca-
tion, Dr. Bode pointed out that
James T. Adams criticizes that in-
stitution for teaching no philos-
ophy, while Count Hermann Key-
serling, admits that there is a phil-
osophy, but that it is wrong-it is
the philosophy of behaviorism; we
admire above all, technical efficien-
cy. Adams, he showed, declares
that America is obsessed by utilitar-.
ianism which is the foe of advance-
ment. He also states that the Am-
erican youth learns nothing, and

that what he does learn is wrong.
Dr. Bode believes that Europe
might stop "heaving bricks at Am-
erican education," and diagnose
the situation and tell us what is

Students Will Take Eight Months
Course at Nava! Air Station,
Pensacola, Florida
Ten courses in naval aviation
will be offered in the College of
Engineering during. the fall semes-
ter. These courses will be under
the in'struction of professors of
that college and Naval Reserve of-
ficers of the VN Squadron 9, RD9,
There will be classes meeting two
nights a week and giving two hours
credit in the following subjects:
structure and rigging, theory of
flight, aerology, aviation history,
aviation engines, air navigation,
sea navigation, scouting, United
States Navy regulations, and radio.-
The nine months training period
inculdes one month of preliminary
training at the Naval Reserve Avia-
tion base, Great Lakes, Ill., and I
eight months advanced training at
the naval air station, Pensacola,
Fla. By the end of this time the
student will have done more than'
200 hours of solo flying, and will
be eligible for a transport license.E
Seniors and graduates will be given .
preference in selection.

John W. Davis
Secretary of Labor, will lecture
here later in the month. Tenta-
tive arrangements have been made
by the local chapter of the Loyal
Order of Moose.


Has 24 Cylinders
It was sent from the Philadelphia
navy yard to Annapolis today and
at that time general details of its
construction were revealed here.
The tiny blue racer is a middle
blue wing monoplane of 26/ feet
wings. It is powered with a 24
cylinder engine which develops in
excess of 1,100 horse power.
The twin floats of the seaplane
have been utilized as radiators to
cool the engine which develops an
excess while it is taxiing on the
water. It is the first time such a
cooling method has ben empowered
on an American seaplane. Finished
planes have used it in modified
form, but on William's plane about
80 percent of the surface area of
the float has been utilized.
Utilizes 48 Spark Plugs
The hot water from the engine
passed between the double walls of
metal floats is cooled by the sea-
water upon which the plane taxis.
Taxiing is one of the most danger-
ous undertakings for high speed
racing seaplanes because the wing
radiators furnish insufficient cool-
ing area at low speed.
The Packard "X" engine has
undergone, radical changes to re-
duce the funnel area and make it
more efficient. Its four carburators
and intake manifold have been
placed in the V's between the upper
and lower bunk of cylinders. The
propellor has been geared down
and the compression ratio of the
engine raised to about 7 to 1. There
are 48 spark plugs and 4 distribu-

By C. Alexander Askren
Last night's concert in Hill audi-
torium closed the summer session
series of Faculty concerts with a
recital by Dalies Frantz, pianist,
and his mother,- Mme. Amelia
Frantz, soprano.
The first part of the program
was given over to an "opener," a
very dainty and delicately toned
Scarlatti number, Pastorale and
Capriccio, which showed clearly
the influence of the early period
of the piano. In its delicacy and
insignificance of tonal and sub-
ject matter it proved itself to be
written for the harpsichord, and
Frantz's interpretation of it ag was
sympathetic and restrained. The
more important number of the re-
cital was the Brahms arrangement
of the Variations and Fugue on a
theme by Handel. In itself the Va-
riations was rather a bad number;
it was a trifle boring and not quite
as coherent as it might be. Of
course a certain amount of inco-
herency is to be expected in such
a number from its very concep-
tion, but there was lacking the tra-
ditional treatment by connecting
adjacent episodes. The fault for
this does not lie so much in Frantz's
interpretation as with the compo-
sition itself, although the recital-
ist's attack of the subject served
to heighten the effect. Frantz at-

variations too much so that the
essential content, the continuity,
suffered because of his too dyna-
mic and bold interpretation. There
was power in the pianist's concep-
tion of how the composition should
be played and this he showed by
his blunt and well struck notes in
the bass and the left hand
throughout. Indeed this was the
distinguishing feature of Frantz's
technique during the whole pro-
gram. It makes for power but at
the same time it becomes a bit
wearirome and monotonous.
The vocal numbers by Mme.
Amelie Frantz justified thoroughly
her wide reputation in the East;
in fact, she was the "hit" of the
concert being recalled to give three
encores. The choice of selections
were admirably suited to Mme.
Frantz's high soprano voice, es-
pecially so the first number that
she sang, the "Care Selve" from
Atlanta by Handel. She is possess-
ed of a register that is much high-
er than is usual on the concert
stage and which becomes purer and
more beautiful the higher she goes.
Her deeper songs were just a trifle
strained but were possessed of a
sincerity for tones that make the
strain forgivable. Next to the "Care
Selve" the Strauss selection, Aller-
seelen, was the best of her songs,
