Japan, for many years reluctant
to permit the alien eye to observe the
legendary and hideous customs of
mysterious Formosa, has relented in
a recent instance to permit the not-.
ed ethnologist and lecturer, Capt.
Carl von Hoffman, to. make a scien-
tifIc survey,.
For twenty centuries and longer
this strange island of the Orient has
been a world unto itself, shpinking
from the outsider, working frequent-
ly a vicious 1unishient on the alien
who managed to transgress. For
this is the land of the.head hunter
-and a foreigner's head is no less
a prize than a native's.
Eighteen.. ears as Explorer
Capt. von Hoffman is to lecture
here Aug.'8 in Hillmauditorium, the,
third and final lecture on the series
arranged for the Summer Session
term. His lecture, "The Head Tak-I
ers of Formosa," follows a special
dispensation granted by Japanese
authorities that permitted him to
make observations hitherto unknown
to the Caucasian, and to supplement
and substantiate them with motion'
pictures and sound records that com-
bine romantic thrill with scientifici
Capt. von Hoffman has been .an
explorer for .18 years. Much of his
expeditionary work has been alone.
A great deal of his adventuring has
been in Africa. His more recent en-
terprises, however, have taken him
,into untraced wilds of the Orient.l
Penetrates Center of Island
Formosa, or, ip nativ tongue, Tai-
wan, is a forbidden reach of the
world. Its ports are modern. Itsl
surface is attainable. But the in-e
terior, in which savage aborigines
abide, is virtually virgin to the for-
eigner. Capt. von Hoffian's pene-
tration to -the centrlmountains,
8,000 feet above sea level, was an
achievement and more remarkable
since he was the first permitted by
these barbarians to emerge with a
record of their customs and mode of
living. For six months he ate and
slept and breathed with the abori-
gines in the thick cliff-rotted cam-c
phor jungles.
It was as guest of the Japanese
government, which established a
precedent in according this privilege,
that Capt. von Hoffman went into
the forbidden zone. The origin of
this people is in doubt-possibly
Polynesian or Malay, compelled to
seek refuge in themountain fast-
nesses by the Chinese invasion. It
is a land of singing lizards and sugar-
eating bats, of the head-taking Tai-
yal, Paiwan, Tsou, Bunun, -Ami and
Saisett tribes.
Portrays Goddess of Orao
Capt. von Hoffman's motion pic-
ture and sound records portray the
ritual dances on the topic shores of
hake Condido and the incantations
of the sun-worshipping women. He
has, too, the unprecedent motion pic-
tures of the legendary Goddessof1
Orao, an idol i thertrees,.adorned
with three skulls, her arms broken
off, a heroine of Chinese literature.
Tickets for Ehe lecture have been
placed on sale at the box office of
the Lydia Mendessohn theatre in

ture they will be on sale at the Hill
auditrii m box office.

Against Governor
Split. as Deadline

LANSING, July 29.-(/)-The lid
slammed down on the field of can-
didates for the September primary
election today with the opposition to
Gov. Wilbur M. Brucker still widely
A hectic day of maneuvering by
anti-administration fprces failed to
weaken materially the strategic posq
ition occupied by Brucker. In the
race against him are George W.
Welsh, city manager of Grand Ra-.
pids and Mayor W. H. McKeighan,
of Flint, flanked by James C. Quin-
lan, of Grand Rapids and Orla A.
Bailey Shiawassee county farmer.
The only candidate for the Repub-
lican' gubernatorial nomination to
leave the contest was Ed. A. Now8gck,
of Lansing.
Whe the time limit for candidates
to withdraw ended at 5 o'clock Friday
afternoon, Frank B. Fitzgerald, 'sec-
retary of state, announced that the
.names of all who had not filed no-
tices with him will go on the pri-
mary ballot. Brucker managers
were elated. Don Smith, secretary
to the Governor and others were in
the secretary of states office await-
ing the deadline. They figure thgt
McKeighan and Welsh will split the
entire Brucker strength wide-open,
with Quillan and Bailey walking
away with segments.

Dictatorship Is
Only Way Out,
Batt Declares
U. S. Needs Fundamental
Change in Government,
He Tells Socialists
"The only thing that will strike
out the present situation is a dicta-
torship in the United States," assert-
ed Dennis Batt in a -lecture before
the Socialist club yesterday. "Either
a fascist of proletariat dictatorship
is inevitable.
"Such a, dictatorship, in a show-
down, would of course reflect the in-
terests of .the class controlling itt As
United States citizens, we have yet
to distinguish between the state and
the nation. Weneed a drasticmand
fundamental change in government,
and the' mere elcetion 'of officials will
not accomplish this change and solve
the problem."
Batt pointed out that the solution
for the present economic problem
could be effected by a reorganization
by the capitalistic classes to effect a
balance between production and
consumption. "This, however, can-
not be done," he declared, "except at
the expense of reducing the rate of
profit drastically, and that means
centralized control, or a dictatorship.
"Democracy ,as we understand de-
mocracy, has outlived its usefulness.
If we mean government of the peo-
ple, by the people, and for the peo-
ple, we are just moving into the
period of real democracy."
'att asserted that nothing would
happen this year, that there would
be a great deal of 'hurrah' between
now and November, but that when
the shouting was all over, one of the
same old groups would be in control.
"It makes no difference whether
President Hoover or Governor Roose-
velt is elected," he said. Some of
the left parties, however, may poll
a larger vote than ever before. But
as far as doing anything for the
great mass of the common people is
concerned, both Hoover and Roose-
velt are inhibited from accomplish-
ing anything."

OTTAWA, July 29.-(M)-Observ-
ers at the Imperial Economic Con-
ference are beginning, to think that
the broad program of Empire prefer-
ence, so widely discussed before the
Conference began, may give place
to a series of independent trade
agreements among the Dominions.
Those who think so cited these
three 'developments:
1-Stanley Baldwin's statement
yesterday in which he asked the Do-
minions to remember their favorable
trade balance with the United King-
dom when they asked for further ad-
vantages, and in which he said that
Great Britain expects to keep her
tariffs low enough so her industries
can compete on a fair basis with
those of the Dominions.'
2-The revelation of strong Nation-
alist feeling by India, South Africa
and the Irish Free State, none of
which will permit the Conference to
forget that they consider themselves
not integral parts of the British Em-.
pire, but independent nations affili-
ated with it.
3-The continuing progress of ne-
gotiations looking toward bi-lateral
trade agreements, as contrasted with
official silence on the status of the
Empire unity project.
'Britain Keeps Open Mind
Malcolm MacDonald, son of the
British Premier, who is +here as .a
spokesman to the British press, said
today the United Kingdom has made
no decision on any Dominion request
for preference.
The work of. the Conference ap-
parently has been toward private
trade treaties between various dele-
gations, since the delegates were in-
fornied that Great Britain can offer
little assistance to agriculture com-
modities, of which the Empire pro-
du es a surplus.Y
These negotiations have been of
such character that they would be
amenable to subsequent Empire uni-
ty, but they are not considered to
fit in with any wqrkable scheme of
inter-imperial trade.
The agreements thus far do not
suggest protective tariffs against
goods coming from other countries
of the Commonwealth.
Canada already has trade agree-
ments with Australia and New Zea-
land and is expected to compete ne-
gotiations with South Africa within
two weeks.

German Leader
Denies Seeking
A Dictatorship

and Sternly;'


Grand Jury
WASHINGTON, -uly 29.--()-In
one final gas and fire attack Federal
troops late today swept away the
last vestiges of the Bonus Army en-
campment in downtown Washington
and' heard their job pronounced
well-done by their commander-in-
chief, President Hoover.
Confident that order had at last
been restored after light clashes and
hand to hand battles between police
and4 veterans, the cavalry was re-
turned to Fort Myer, Virginia, and
the infantry taken in trucks to the
Washington quartermaster's depot,
a temporary war structure several
blocks from the White House, where
it was quartered for the night.
Fire Shanties
Just as the tear gas and torch
bearing troopers and doughboys were
firing the last veteran shanty and
scattering the few straggling bonus
seekers in all directions, President
loover announced to the nation that
the riotious challenge to government
authorities had been "met swiftly
and sternly.'
Major General V. H. Moseley, de-
puty chief of staff, said the military
phases of the troubles were over.
Campers Leave Washington
"It is now .a job for the District of
Columbia police force," he added. "Of
course, the troops will continue to
lend a hand where the police need
assistance. But the task is to keep
the campers from drifting back in-
to the city and to prevent crowds
from congregating. The campers are
leaving Washington, in large num-
bers and a part of our troops have'
been withdrawn as there will be no
longer a need for large patrols of
Like Secretary Hurley and Major
General Douglas MacArthur, chief
of staff, General Moseley emphasized
that after the army took charge of
the situation yesterday not a civilian
nor a soldier was injured so far as
the War department had been able
to learn.
Arrest Thirty-Six
'"Government cannot be coerced by
mob rule," the President said em-
phatically. He had ordered a Grand
Jury investigation to bring to book
the instigators of yesterday's clashes.
Thirty-six radical members of the
"bonus expeditionary force" had
been arrested by police as they left
a meeting in an abandoned church
in southeast Washington, about 75
more of their number were escorted
out of the city, and a general exodus
of hundreds of veterans made head-
way through the day and evening.

Von Papen Allays'
Of U. S. in Radio'
Assails Versailles


BERLIN, - July 29.-(IP)-Chancel-
bor Franz von Papen, whose cabinet
is made up of men powerful in the
Junker and military caste of the Im-
perial government, assured the Uni-
ted States in a trans-Atlantic broad-
cast tonight that neither he nor his
ministers were maneuvering for a
German dictatorship. /
His address, in which he assailed
the Versailles treaty,, took on added
significance because of two factors.
At home, Germany is embroiled in.

tions Sunday, and abroad she is in-
volved in a new difference with
A few hours before the Chancellor
went on the air, his foreign minis-
ter, Baron Konstantin von Neurath,
told the French ambassador that
when the French minister Kurt von
Scheicher threatened the other day
to arm Germany if the other nations
did not disarm, he spoke for every
member of tpe German cabinet and
for the whole German nation.

Germany's armed force to the num-
ber needed to preserve interior or-

Sunuiner Session Students Play,
'Follow the Leader' at Put-in-Bay


Would you like to. take a walk?
Members of the Universiti of
Michigan expedition to Put-in-Bay
did precisely that yesterday - and
plenty of it. Arriving at Put-in-Bay
at about 12:45 o'clock after a four-
hour water trip, Prof. William Hobbs
of the geology department imme-
diately led his charges to the famous
caves. The Professor, despite his
years, kept up a walking pace that
proved practically killing to some of
the younger and less sturdymembers
of his party. But wherever Hobbs
led, the mob, charging along like a
herd of buffaloes, was sure to follow.
Proceeding from the caverns the
group headed for the south shore of
the island to study shore formations.
Then began a six-mile hike along the

ment erected in honor of Oliver Haz-
ard Perry.
Certain members of the party who
couldn't stand the gaff deserted and
spent the day riding around in taxis
visiting the various points of interest.
The press was well represented .on
the excursion, correspondents of the
Detroit Free Press and Detroit Times
as well as The Daily being present.
On the return trip the boat arrived
at the island half an hour late. One
member /of the party insisted that
he had to get back in Ypsi at 11
o'clock for a date and went to set
the captain about making the boat
go a little faster. The evening was
spent in dancing to the tunes pro-
vided by a tin-pan orchestra. Others
who couldn't dance went down in the
"hole" and told stories to the en-


Blames Riot on 'Reds'
Confident that the "B. E. F." riots
of the last two days were the result
of agitation entirely foreign to the
American Legion and, in many cases,
communistic in origin, L. A. Tappe,
commander of the Ann Arbor post,
asserted last night that the Legion
had no official connection with the
Washington disturbances.
"The Legion," Tappe said, "went
on record at their, national conven-
tion in Detroit as opposing any im-
mediate demands for bonus payment
during the depression. Hoover's per-
sonal appeal to the delegates won
them to this stand."
Pace, thrice-arrested leader of the
radical wing of the Bonus army, and
an admitted Communist agitator, is
a typical example of the influences
"masquerading" as Legionaires in
Washington, Tappe saidn. He aded
that _i m d e ...Pn t.tnr,.whn
