Traces Early Greek Philosophy
to Its Present Form as
Systematic Science.
Modern Philosophy Movements,
Stand of the Naturalist
Included in Lecture.
Prof.. Roy W. Sellars of the phil-
osophy department addressed an
audience which filled the Natural
Science auditorium yesterday after-
noon on the subject of "Present
Movements in Philosophy."
"Philosophy is very much alive
today," said Professor S e 11l a r s .
"There are developments in its
field just as there are developments
in the fields of the inorganic sci-
ences. The word new' is often used~
in philosophy-as in new realism,'
new idealism,' 'new romanticism,'
and other terms. We are constant-
ly gaining new perspectives on our
Prof. Sellars defined philosophy
as an attempt to reflect on the in-
evitable problems which. confront
mankind. In stating philosophy's
relation to the other sciences, he
maintained that it was supple-
mentary to them, taking into con-
sideration, as it does, the relation
of the human to the material world.
Names Three Branches
"There are three branches of
philosophy," he said, "the philoso-
phy of. Knowledge, Metaphysics,
and the Theory of Values." Philos-
ophy of Knowledge, he went on to
say, is the study of the manner of
knowing things. Metaphysics, and
more especialy ontology, he char-
acterized as the "science of being-
of what is real." The Theory of
Values, he said included such things
as the appreciation of the stand-
ards of right and wrong, good and
Prof. Sellars traced the history of
philosophy from its early Greek be-
ginnings to its present form as a
systematic science. From the Hel-
lenic idealism and the neo-scholas-
ticism of the Middle ages he fol-
lowed it through the dualism of
Descartes and the realism of Eng-
land's Locke.
Among the modern philosophical
movements, Sellars discussed the
revolt against romanticism by prag-
m atisr, which was supported by
Shiller, James, Dewey, and others,
and the more recent variation, neo-
pragmatism. He discussed these and
other modern schools of neo-ideal-
ists, naive realists, neo-realists, and
naturalists on the basis of their'
stand on the "nature of truth." The
pragmatists, he said, believe that
truth is "that which works," while
the idealists preach that an object,
In order to be existant and true,
must be in relation to a mentality.
Explains Common Sense View '
"(The naive realists," he said,
"take what we might call the co-
mon sense' point of view; that is,
that being known or unknown to a
mentality makes no difference to
an object." From the contention of
the neo- realists, such as Bertram
Russel, that impressions are an act
of the mind, he went on to the re-

turn of naive realism in America
under the theory that objects are
"given to the brain" as it reacts to
them, that a "collection of consci-
ousness" is made by the mentality.
Prof. Sellars continued by. eluci-
dating the stand of the naturalists
that man is a logical development
of nature, and that of the critical
realists as exemplified by Strong of
Harvard, Rodgers of Yale, and Sel-
lars himself.

G. 0. P. Leaders Defer Decision;
Consider Action Rests on
President Hoover.
(By Associated Press)1
WASHINGTON, July 10.-Unre-
lenting, Claudius H. Huston went
into a close conference today with
the officers of the Republican Na-
tional Committee who are demand-
ing his immediate retirement as
Informed Huston would fight,
two of the officers consulted Presi-
dent Hoover for half an hour be-
fore the meeting. They were James
Francis Burke, counsel of the com-
mittee, and Joseph R. Nutt, the
treasurer, both of whom are in-
sisting on Huston's retirement.
Determined to have it out, Hus-
ton reached headquarters exactly
at the appointed hour and silently
led his disgruntled forces into the
long committee room. Senator
George H. Moses, of New Hamp-
shire, who leads the party's sena-
torial committee, appeared to be
the only ally of the harassed
chairman present.
The leaders were divided on theI
course to be taken. Many believe
it is up to President Hoover to act.

He was not asked directly, how-

friends of long standing. Huston

Hoover May Refuse Documents
if Action Seems Harmful
to Public Interest.
Senator Copeland Holds Treaty
Does Not Offer Parity or
Relieve Tax Burden.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 10.-After
three days of stirring debate, he
Senate today adopted a modified
McKellar resolution r eq uesting
President Ho~overt to transmit to
the Senate all correspondence
bearing on the London Naval trea-
ty exchanged between the powers
prior to its negotiation. The vote
was 53-4.
As finally passed, the resolution
would make the action of the
President subject to whether hel
felt it would be harmful to the pub-
lic interest. This is the attitude
assumed by Mr. Hoover when he
refused to transmit to the Senate
Foreign Relations committee all
papers requested by it.
Hoover's Action Uncertain.
Opinion was divided tonight on
whether the executive would ac-
cede to the Senate's request. Some
senators believed that he would
stand by his original position. Oth-
ers thought that he would produce
the documents with the request
that they be held in confidence.
Disposition of the resolution
cleared the way for resumption of
debate on the treaty itself, al-
l though Sen. Copeland, Dei., N. Y.,
fired the first gun for the treaty
opposition today.
Amendment Adopted, 38-17.
The amendment to the McKel-
lar resolution giving the president
the right to withhold documents
he considered too confidential was
offered by Sen. Robinson of Ar-
kansas the minority leader and the
other senatorial delegate to Lon-
don. It was adopted 38-14. Most
of the treaty opponents were re-
corded in the opposition on this
vote. Those voting against the
proposal on final adoption were

IDETROIT, July 10.-Four players,
two from Detroit and two from out-
state, were the sole survivors Thurs-
day night of a field of 97 players
w ho started Sunday in quest of the
IMichigan State championship at
the Tennis club.
The four survivors are all champ-
ions and the list is headed by War-
ren Byrum, Kalamazoo, defending
title holder; George Reindel, city
champion; Frank Donovan, former
city champion; and William Irwin,
who held that title at Grand Rap-
ids last year.
SThe quarter final matches in the
men's singles produced some of the
best tennis of the tournament. By-
rum was given a harder run for his
money than at any time during the

meet by Horace Barton, former
University of Michigan net man.
However, the champion p u 11 e d
through in straight sets 6-4, 7-5,
keeping his record of not losing a
set unbroken. Byrum played the
steady, consistent game he has dis-
played all week and in the second
set demonstrated his ability to come
from behind when Barton was
leading at one time, 4-2.
