Methodist Bishop Claims Group
Is Unauthorized to Study
His Political Funds.
Tinkman Instituted Inquiry Into
Cannon's Campaign Against
Smith in South.
WASHINGTON, July 31.-(IP)----
The courts have been asked by
Bishop James Cannon, jr., to sustain
his contention that the senate cam-
paign funds committee is unau-
thorized to investigate his 1928 po-
litical activities in Virginia.
The Southern Methodist church-
man requested a District of Colum-
bia judge to issue an order re-
straining the committee, headed by
Senator Nye, Republican, North
Dakota, from further inquiries into
charges against him alleging viola-
tion of the federal corrupt prac-
tices act.
The action was taken as Bishop
Cannon departed for Europe and
after he had addressed a letter to
Senator Nye asking for the defer-
ment of hearings scheduled in Au-
gust. The statute of limitations of
three years begin in September.
Senator Dale of Vermont, the only
member of the committee, said the
group intended to proceed with the
investigation in August.
Tinkman Starts Inquiry.
The inquiry was initiated by
Representative Tinkman, Republi-
can, Massachusetts, and centers
around the deposition of $48,300
by Bishop Cannon in the campaign
against Alfred E. Smith in Virginia.
Cannon received a total of $65,300
from E. C. Jameson, wealthy New
Yorker, and accounted for the ex-
penditure of $17,000 in a report to
the house clerk as required by the
corrupt practices act.
In his petition, the churchman
reiterated assertions that the Nye
committee was seeking to assume
the duties of a grand jury in its
investigation. He maintained only
a grand jury could inquire into
the alleged commission of crime.
Action was deferred by Justice
James Proctor pending notification
of the five senators composing the
Writing to Senator Nye in a let-
ter dated July 29 and made public
today, Bishop Cannon said:
"I told you when I last saw you
in your office that official duties
will require me to be in Europe
during August and a part of Sep-
tember. I have delayed my sailing
as late as possible thinking that I
might receive some information as
to the plans of your committee."
Going to Belgium.
Cannon explained that he was
sailing on the night of the twenty-
ninth in connectio with the work
of the Methodist Board of Temper-
ace and Social Service and to meet
officials of the foreign branch in
Belgium in August.
"If there are to be further hear-
ings by your committee on the com-
plaint of Congressman Tinkman, of
course you can well understand
that I should desire to be present.

I trust, therefore, that in view of
all the circumstances that if an-
other hearing is held by the com-
mittee, it will not be before the
twenty-fifth of September, the date
which you suggested in our last

Saskatchewan Premier Declares
Static Type of Teaching
DENVER, July 31.-(IP)-A plea to
bridge the gap between theory and
practice in education was made by
J. M. T. Anderson, premier of
Saskatchewan, Canada, before the
World Federation of Education as-
sociations today.
"The educational aims of the
past will not satisfy the present,"
he said. "Present day aims will be
modified in the future. A static
type of modern education is un-
thinkable. Education is a living,
growing process."
Premier Anderson said education
is defined for the present genera-
tion, in theory at least, in terms
of human behavior and has to do
with growth and development and
the liberation of capacity.

two dozen women were present at
the picnic which was under the di-
rection of Jeanette Saurbourne and
Alise Westendarp.
These picnic-swims have been
weekly affairs sponsored by the
women's physical educational de-
partment and have proven particu-
larly popular among the women
Although the last outdoor one
will be held next Friday, the season
will be closed with a large all-cam-
pus splash party, to be held in one
of the campus indoor pools.

As one of the special features
which the women's physical educa-
tional department is offering to the
women enrolled in the summer ses-
sion, there will be an open swim-
ming meet held at 7:30 next Thurs-
day evening in the Union pool.
The program will include a 25-
yard free style, side stroke for
form, racing back stroke for form,
sculling 25 yards, retrieving objects,
novelty races, and a water game.
Every woman student is invited
to enter the meet whether she has
enrolled in a swimming class dur-
ing the session or not, and those
entering are asked to sign up at
Barbour gymnasium at once.
The meet will be under the di-
rection of Miss Ruth Campbell who
has been the swimming instructor
this summer.

(Special to The Daily)
MADISON, Wis., July 31.-What
does a university athletic coach do
in vacation time?
It all depends upon his tastes and
his opportunities. Most of the ma-
jor sports coaches of the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin teach classes dur-
ing the summer session. When that
six weeks period is over, they may
go fishing, travel, work on books--
or even make moving pictures.
Dr. Walter E. Meanwell, the

Badgers basketball coach, is in
Hollywood now, directing the pro-
duction of three reels of basket-
ball films, embodying the Mean-
well technique and tactics of bas-
ketball which enabled his teams
to win ten championships in 19
seasons. With the little doctor
