Major Social Event
of Summer.
Students and faculty of the Uni-
versity met socially for the first
time last night when the annual,
Summer Session Reception was
held at the Michigan league build-
More than 1000 members of the
student body thronged the ball-
room, foyer, and reception rooms of
the spacious building to meet fac-
ulty members and their wives and
officials of the administration.
The receiving line, headed by
Dean Edward H. Kraus of the Sum-
mer Session and Mrs. Kraus, and
including Mrs. Alexander G. Ruth-
yen, and Regents Junius E. Beal
and Esther M. Cram, consisted of
the following persons:

Mrs. Moore, Dean Alice Lloyd, Miss

ton F. Wells.
Although the reception was in-1
formal in nature, the gay gowns of
women, trailing almost to the floor,
anid the light-colored summer cos-
tumes of the men combined to
make the affair a colorful event.
Is Annual Feature
The reception began at 8:30. Aft-
er paying their respects to the re-
ceiving line, guests played bridge in
the card rooms. Dancing in the
ballroom added gayety to the scene.
Designed to "break the ice" be-
tween summer students and fac-
ulty, the annual feature is con-
sidered as the opening of the so-
cial season on the campus, with
the smaller parties, teas, and tea
dances continuing during the sub-
sequent weeks of school.
POLLOCK VIEWS
RECALL BATTLE.
According to Prof. James K. Po-
lock of the political science depart-
mient, the recall now n process in
Detroit marks an interesting exper-
iment in popular government. "The
refusal of the courts to interfere
and their determination to let the
citizens of Detroit decide the mat-
ter for themselves make the situ-
ation more than merely unusual,
for if the courts had decided other-
wise, the result would have been
to nullify the recall," he declared.
"Consequently," he continued, "the

courts were entirely right in call-
ing the question raised in the suit
"political."
Professor Pollock pointed out that
the form of recall used in Detroit
permits a clear cut decision of vot-
ers on the question of the mayor's
competence, and until this question
is decided against the mayor there
is no talk about his successor.
"There appears to be widespread
dissatisfaction with the present ad-
ministration," he remarked, "and if
this dissatisfaction is well-founded
it is fortunate that' such an insti-
tution as the recall can be brought
to use."
"The expense of holding the spe-
cial election is a small matter,"
stated Professor Pollock' "if the al-
leged incompetence of the present
administration is proved to be well-
founded. In any case the recall per-
mits the voters to decide promptly

More Men Than Women Suffer
From Malady, Columbia
Professor Asserts
FAD DIETS DANGEROUS
Newspapers Should Warn Public
Against Epidemiological
Danger of Disease.
"Late middle life is the danger
period when, diabetes claims the
largest percentage of its victims,"
declared Dr. Haven Emerson, Pro-
fessor in the Institute of Public
fHealth, Columbia University, dis-
cussing the "Epidemiological meth-
od in Relation to Diabetes," before;
the second institute of public health
yesterday. "One and a quarter as
many women die of this disease as
men, although more men are in
hospital suffering from it.
"Diabetes has been growing as
the cause of death since 1870 when
it caused one death in every 2400.
Now it claims one out of 45," con-
tinued Dr. Emerson, "and the rela-
tive proportion of women dying of
diabetes has steadily grown.
Arouse Public Interest
"The 'social duty of the newspa-
pers," said Dr. Emerson in an in-
terview, "is to arouse the public
interest by calling attention to the
increase and the epidemiological
character of diabetes; health edu-
cation will then be carried on in
the institutions of learning under
competent authority." Dr. Emerson
insisted that public health de-
mand that theĀ° attention of -the
public be called to the growth of
diabetes.
"Annual health examination by
the family physician is a most im-
portant first item in the combating
of this and other diseases," Dr.
Emerson said, and "one should be
guided by the physician's pre-
scribed diet appropriate to the age
and occupation of the patient."
Young women have been under
the influence of the slenderness
fad,which Dr. Emerson believes has
done more harm than good by re-
ducing their resistance to diseases
such as tuberculosis. This fad, con-
fined as, it is largely to the ages of
15 to 35, has not greatly affected
the tendency towards the obesity
of later life, he pointed out.
Health Education Needed
"It is health education and not1
health propaganda that is needed,"
said Dr. Emerson. "Public health
should form a part of education in
the schools under full-time profes-
sionally trained health officers. The
experience of New York, small
though it may be, should lend en-
couragement to the long delayed
plans of Washtenaw county for a
model health unit," said Dr. Emer-
son.
Commenting upon the growing
use of the cigarette among the
women, Dr. Emerson said, "I have
no evidence that it has done them
any good.________________________________

President Asks Secret Scrutiny;
Says Publication Amounts

MAY POSTPONE TREATY~
Senator Hale Declares British
Have Us "Ham-Strung and
Hog-Tied in Treaty".
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 11.-Presi-
dent Hoover's refusal today to give
the Senate all the notes leading up
to the London Naval conference
provoked the introduction of the
first reservation to the treaty and
d r e w a spirited denunciation.
Around the reservation offered by
Sen. Norris, Rep., Neb., there was
gathered tonight some considera-
ble strength and upon this issue
may be made either a big attempt
to reject the treaty or postpone its
consideration until fall.
It was Sen. Johnson, Rep., Cal.,
leader of the treaty opposition who
assailed the presidential message
and called upon the Senate to take
action against the "lashing." He
did not mention what action and it
was understood he meant rejection
of the treaty.
Fears "Breach of Trust"
Mr. Hoover invited the members
of the Senate to scrutinize for
themselves the London documents
under pledge of secrecy but he said
their publication for use in debate
would amount to a "breach of
trust" by himself with other na-
tions.
He reiterated "with the utmost
emphais" that in 'the "Lndrn e-
gotiations "there were no secrets or
concealed understandings, promises
or interpretations, not any commit-
ments whatever except as appeared
in the treaty itself."
The Norris resolution which was
offered immediately after the pres-
idential message was read to the'
Senate called attention to the fail-
ure of the Senate to get all London
data and concluded:
Reed Disapproves of Resolution
"Therefore be it resolved by the
Senate that in ratifying the said
treaty the Senate does so with the
distinct and explicit understanding
that there are no secrets filed, doc-
uments, letters, understandings, or
agreements which in any way, di-
rectly or indirectly, modify, change,
add to or take from any of the
stipulations, agreements, or state-
ments in said treaty; and that the
Senate ratifies said treaty with the
distinct and explicit understand-
ings, agreement, secret or other-
wise, expressed or Implied, between
any of the parties to said treaty
as to any concession that shall
hereafter be given to any statement
of provision contained therein."
While Senator Reed, Rep., Pa.,
one of the delegates to London, in-
dicated his disapproval of the Nor-
ris resolution, Sen. Borah of the
Foreign Relations committee and
other treaty proponents withheld
judgment pending a study.

EXPEL CURIOUS

(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, July '11.-Earl Car-
roll, who boasts that through his
stage doors pass the most beautiful
girls in the world, led eight of them
through the portals of Jefferson
Market court today for a hearing
on police charges that his latest
"Vanities" is an indecent show.
Carroll, Jimmy Savo, "Vanities"
comedian, and the eight show girls
and dancers had to elbow their
way through 500 spectators gath-
ered in the street and in the court
room. Hardly had the principals
taken their seats when the judge
ordered attendants to clear the
room of "all curiosity seekers."
More than 200 spectators left or
were escorted out, but standing
room was still scant.
Capt. James J. Coy, police critic,
was the first witness. He described
the scenes which led to the raid on
the show and the arrest of the pro-
ducer and members of the cast.
Capt. Coy said his seat was in
the twelfth row, and defense coun-
sel expressed the opinion that he
was too far from the stage to be
able to tell whether or not Faith
Bacon, in her dance of the fans,
was attired only in fans, as the po-
lice charge.
"It was when she walked off the
stage," Capt. Coy replied, "with her
back to the audience that I real-
ized."
"You mean," said defense coun-
sel, "that while she was doing the
dance facing the audience she so
manipulated the' fans that you
couldn't tell whether she was wear-
ing any clothing or not?"
"Yes," Coy replied.
'Close Harmony' Has
Special Performance
As a result of popular demand, a
special matinee performance of
"Close Harmony" will be given at
3:15 o'clock this afternoon in the
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre. This
comedy of middle-class life in the
suburbs of New York, written by
Elmer Rice and Dorothy Parker,
will also be presented at 8:15 o'clock
tonight.

FUNCTIONS OF LITTLE THEATRES
IN VALUABLE, SAYS PROF. HICKMVAN

In the opinion of Prof. E. W.
Hickman, of the Carnegie Institute'
of Technology, the Little theatre
movement has enjoyed and will 1
continue to enjoy success. Since the
gradual dropping out of the roadl
companies, the Little theatre has!
been the only outlet for the pro- '
duction of really worth-while plays'
-those with a good standard. l
"In this field," said Prof. Hick-
man, "lies a splendid opportunity
for trying out the plays that would'
never gain professional and finan -
cial success or popular appeal, and
ordinarily would hardly be pro- I
duced. Consequently there is al
chance for young playwrights of
creative ability and "stick-to-it-
iveness."
The outstanding groups in the
Little theatre movement, pointed
Iout the director, namely the Pasa-'
dena Playhouse in California under

nell, the Little theatre in Dallas,
Texas, with which Oliver Hensdell
is connected, and the Goodman
theatre in Chicagothese have giv-
en to the community plays of a
higher standard. In connection
with their respective theatres, both
the Pasadena playhouse and the
Goodman conduct a school for the
players.
In discussing the Little .theatre
and the Community theatre, Pro-
fessor Hickman dt-lared that the
former, being of a superior stan-
dard, played to a certain clientele,
fwhereas the latter appeals to the
ordinary audience. In other words,
the Community theatre gives the
audience what it wants, while the
Little theatre makes its clientele
take what it offers. Herein lies the,
difference. The Little theatre, by
taking in professional men, such as
artists, musicians, costumers, in-
