Harvard Professor Asserts Study
of Revolution Adds Respect
for Insurgent Populace.
Changes Lasting for Centuries
in West Compressed Into
One Generation.
"One cannot appreciate or un-
derstand the Chinese revolution
without gaining a respect for the
Chinese people," declared Prof.
Arthur N. Holcombe of Harvard
university in discussing the Chinese
revolution yesterday afternoon in
the Natural Science auditorium.
"The Chinese revolution is not a
simple revolution," stated Profes-
sor Holcombe. This revolution is
a combination of several. First it
is a cultural revolution. The im-
pact of western culture on the old
Chinese civilization is causing
many changes. Second there is
economic revolution. The old Chi-
nese way of transacting business
was similar to the way Europeans
conducted business in the middle
Not Readily Adaptable.
"Old social institutions ,are
breaking up with the coming of
new social customs," he continued.
"These new ideas are not being
hastily accepted. Instead the Chi-
nese are comparing the customs of
their own country with that of
others and selecting those which
they believe best. Running paral-
lel with these changes is a moral
revolution. Like the new social
ideas the new moral ideas are be-
ing regarded with an open mind
by Chinese leaders.
"Political revolutions and indus-
trial changes which extended over
more than a century of time in
western civilization, are being com-
pressed into one generation in
China," said Professor Holcombe.
Undergo Industrial Change.
"The change from hand labor to
machine manufacturing means
that hundreds of people must seek
new means of employment. A large
percentage of government officials
are graduates of American colleges
and hence on the efficiency of
American college training will de-
pend much of China's future."
A series of slides were shown de-
picting Chinese art, culture, and
some of the modern changes which
are taking place. "We do not
know' what the future state of
China will be, but it is only fitting
that such an intelligent people
work out their own destiny," con-
cluded Professor Holcombe.
Amtorg Lawyer Sees Significance
of Grammatical Errors.
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, July 24.- A slight
grammatical error was put forward
today as evidence of the fraudu-
lence of the so-called Whalen doc-
uments which purport to show that
Soviet directed Communist activi-
ties were being conducted in the

United States through the Amtorg
Trading corporation.
Joseph Michael, an Amtorg at-
torney, pointed out to a special
congressional committee investi-
gating ,Communist activities in
America, that in one of the letters
which former police commissioner
Grover Whalen made public last
night, and which was ostensibly a
letter to Grigory Graften, of Am-
torg, the spelling of the word "pres-
ent" was incorrect according to
the new Russian grammar.
"What of it? asked Representa-
tive John E. Nelson of Maine. "Are
you telling us that a Russian can't
make a mistake?"
"Not at all," Michael replied.
"The importance of this is that in
another of the Whalen documents,
an alleged letter written by Graf-
ten, exactly the same error occurs.
The inferrence is that both the let-
ters from Graften and the letter

Questionable Action
Police Head.



of the American RedI



Many phases of the unemploy-
ment situation and of the move-
ment for unemployment insurance
were discussed last night at the
second meeting of the Liberal Stu-
dents club by Harry Slavin, De-
troit attorney, who is the chair-
man of the Unemployment league
of Michigan.
This league is a Michigan or-
ganization which is circulating in-
itiative petitions to place upon the1
ballot next March an amendment
to the state constitution which1
would p$avide for unemployment{
insurance, according to Mr. Slavin.-
About 150,000 signers on the in-
itiative petition will be necessary
to put the question on the ballot.1
Of these, 20,000 have been obtained
already this month, Mr. Slavin,
said. Petitions are being circulat-
ed in all Michigan industrial cities.
Several European nations have
unemployment insurance, accord-
ing to Mr. Slavin, and some Ameri-;
can organizations are adopting the
plan. The question has been,
brought up in a few states but no
bill has been passed. A federal,
move to investigate the situation
was carried out by a Hoover com-
mission under President Harding
ten years ago, and a bill was intro-
duced by Wagner four years ago,
but, because of the conservatism
and varied interests of representa-
tives, no action has bee ntaken.
Insurance against unemployment
is already provided for 150,000
workers in this country, Mr. Slavin
said, and a recent action of the
General Electric company will add
80,000 more.
Unemploypent is becoming a
political issue, Mr. Slavin averred.
Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt brought
the question up at the last gover-
nors' convention, and has appoint-
ed a commission to study the prob-
lem in New York state.
Initiative, referendum, and recall
are institutions recently adopted in
Michigan, Mr. Slavin remarked,
but have been little used. The un-
employment situation offers the
public a chance to employ them
for general benefit.

Pan Pipes and Donkeys' Ears'
to be Given Under Auspices
of Play Production.
Children from the University
hospital will be entertained next
Monday at a theater party, spon-
sored by the Exchange club of Ann
Arbor, at the matinee presentation
of Tatterman's Marionettes in the
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre, accord-
ing to Donald J. Kaufman, business
manager of the Michigan Reper-
tory players.
The marionettes will appear in
"Pan Pipes and Donkey's Ears,"
written by Catherine Reighard, the
daughter of Prof. J. E. Reighard of
Ann Arbor. Miss Reighard has writ-
ten a number of books on puppets.
She has arranged plays for marion-
ettes, and has also composed sev-
eral. She studied under Prof. George
Pierce Baker, at Yale, in his fam-
ous 47 workshop. Among her writ-
ings are "The King of the Golden
River" and other marionette plays
which appeared here last year.
The Tatterman Marionettes, one
of the most popular puppet groups
in the country, presented by Wil-
liam Duncan and Edward Mabley,
played 11 weeks in New York, and
have been on the road for 20 weeks,
offering performances at Philadel-
phia, Detroit, Cincinnati, Washing-
ton, and other large cities. They
appear here under the auspices of
Play Production.
The Marionettes will be present-
ed in a matinee and a night per-
formance on Monday. Tickets are
priced at 35 cents for children and
50 cents for adults. They will be on
sale this week at the box office of
the theatre.

Detectives Seek Gang Members
in Connection With Killing
of Radio Announcer.
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, July 24.-The murder
of Jerry Buckley, fiery radio oper-
ator, had far-reaching effects to-
day in the city where he minced no
words in denouncing the under-
world before the microphone.
In the burst of police activity
which followed the killing of Buck-
ley by three gunmen as he sat in
a hotel lobby early yesterday, the
centralized vice-squad was swept
out of existence and the precinct
squads which were substituted for
it were ordered to "smash-up" ev-
ery liquor and vice resort in the
Wilcox Tells the News.
A few hours after police commis-
sioner Thomas C. Wilcox had is-
sued orders creating the squads
and starting the raids, a hard blow
was struck at the commissioner
himself by a story in the Detroit
The News stated that Wilcox had
admitted that his statement last
night that he possessed an affidavit
that a whiskey racketeer accused
Buckley of extorting $4,000 from
him was false. The commissioner,
the News said, admitted that he
has no such affidavit "as yet."
The News published an inter-
v i e w with Wilcox in which the
commissioner was asked, after he
had repeated that he had the affi-
davit, to establish the existence of
the affidavit by showing it to a
judge of the circuit court.
"Well, it isn't signed-not yet,"
Wilcox was quoted as saying. The
News added that Wilcox said he
would show the affidavit to James
E. Chenot, county prosecutor.
Chenot was quoted as stating that
Wilcox had promised the affidavit,
but had not produced it.
Detectives Look for Gangs
The Wilcox statement about the
affidavit was the only open charge
which has been made against Buck-
ley, although police headquarters

Army of Soldiers, Doctors, Air

Regions of Italy.

Pope Pius Prepares Church
Aid for Sufferers.
(By Associated Press)
ROME, July 24.-A relief army of
soldiers, doctors, and special work-
ers of all kinds, with scouting air-
planes to guide them t o n i g h t
swarmed into the mountainous re-
cesses of the Neapolitan hinterland
to count an ever-increasing total of
dead and care for thousands of in-
jured and hundreds of thousands
of homeless from Wednesday's ca-
lamitous earthquake.
From King Victor Emmanuel and
Premier Mussolini down, Italy to-
day began mobilization on a war-
time scale for the rescue work.
Pope Pius XI., horrified by the ex-
tent of the catastrophe, prepared
the forces of the church.
Wide Zone Devastated
Fromthe Bay of Naples and to
the Gulf of Salerno on the west
almost to the Gulf of Manfredonia
on the Adriatic, a zone of devastat-
ed and stricken towns, hamlets, and
houses stretched like an open
wound around the "ankle" of the
Italian boot.
With the figures of known dead
at the Ministry of the Interior al-
ready past 2,000 and those of the
known injured approaching with
dizzying speed the 5,000 mark, fore-
casts of a death toll of at least
3,000 were confidently made in
Rome tonight.
Unofficial reports before 7 p. m.
gave 3,025 as the number of bodies
already found. In remote commu-
nities and distant farms it is feared
that hundreds more are buried un-

85 Towns Desolate
From Naples almost as far as the
plain of Apullia on the other side
of the Appennines, at ,least 85
towns and villages lay desolate.
In the provincial centers and
larger towns Fascist militiamen
and all Fascist military organiza-
tion moved in swift, disciplined or-
der on their errand of relief. As the
frightened populace grew more re-
assured and the work of salvage
lightened, bands were sent out to
the surrounding country.
Health authorities, fearful of
such epidemics as follow in the
wake of great disasters, mobilized
an army of doctors and pharma-
cists. Medicines and serums were
collected at strategic points. Food
supplies were massed in depots and
distributed by the truck load. Wa-
ter was rushed in tank trucks to

plies had been cut off.
