BALTIMORE, Aug. 1.-(IP)--Gov.
Albert C. Ritchie tonight said in a
formal statement tht a camp fori

"is totally impracticable and should
not be established."

The governor's statement was: s
"Maryland treated these men witht
every consideration while they were
here; fed them and transported them
to Pennsylvania, where they wanted;
to go. Maryland will continue to re-
spect every right of any of the men-
who are now in this state or who.
nay come here, and both as a peo-
ple and as a state we will show our
sympathy and helpfulness in every
way. But to permit a settlement to
be established along the line sug-
gested raises other questions.
"It all sounds very utopian, but
certain practical things must not be
''In the first place the proposed
ste is totally unsuitable for the pur-
pose. I have had it inspected by the
state health department. It is prin-
cipally ;" crub woodland, with no
a riculture upon it possible. No food
o any kind. Nothing like an ade-t
quate water supply, and of course no
sewerage facilities. No group couldt
earn a livelihood or sustain them-
selves on that land, and health and
sanitation would be seriously menac-
Would be Charity Objects
" our own Maryland people are
suffering sadly from the effect of the
depression, wart and unemployment.
We cannot be expected to accept in
'cur midst an organized body of men,
who do not belonk here, and whot
would certainly defeat the object oft

we will . have, to strain every energyt
and tax every resource to care for
our own people.
"Under these conditions the set-
tlement is totally impractical and
should not be estabished'
"Whether the meiX can be prevent-
ed froi coming into Maryland withz
the intention of settling here mayt
involve legal questions. The attor-i
ney general is giving that considera-{

situation of the men would be if they

Students Ready to Fight
Forest Fires Near Camp

(Special)-Students at the Univer-

forest fire and several small ones
have occurred within a few miles of
the camp during the past two weeks
in spite of the rainy- weather.

The great German Reichstag elec-
tion of July 31 is at last over. As
the smoke (perhaps one should say
"gas") lifts from the political battle-
field, it becomes possible to survey
the results of the struggle. Although
the Hitlerites and their allies will
control 45 per cent of the seats in
the new parliament, they failed/ to
secure an absolute majority, thus
verifying the general prediction. The
number of National Socialists in the
Reichstag has been increased from
101 to 22.9. This is a truly remark-
able gain but it was somewhat offset
by the fact that it was largely made
at the expense of the other parties of
the Right such as the Nationalists
andI the People's Party. The Center
Party undr Bruening and the
Bavarian People's- Party, which is
likewise Catholic, secured nine addi-
tional representatives. One of the
upsets of the election was the sr-
prising rise in the representation of
the Communist Party,- from 77 to
89. Since the Social Democrats lost
ten seats,, it is probable that the
Communists were the chief benefi-
ciaries from the Socialist losses.
About 83 per cent of the registered
voters went to the polls.. This is the
same ratio that prevails in the sec-

Advance Sale of Tickets
Keeps Staff Busy; Is
Sixth Production
Advance order for "Oice in' a
Lifetime," the take-off on the mo-
tion pictu're industry, kept workers
busy yesterday in the box office of
the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre.
Written by Moss Hart and George
S. Kaufman, who wrote "Of Thee I
Sing," Pulitzer prize drama, "Once in
a Lifetime" is the sixth production
of the Michigan Repertory Players.
It opens a four-day r'un Wednesday
Of this satire on the talkies, one
dramatic critic is quoted as saying,
'our only objection to the play is
that it is so chuck full of witticisms
that the laughs overlap and of times
we must smother a chuckle in order
to hear the next Wisecrack."
The play concerns itself with three
members of a vaudeville act, May,
Jerry and George, who join the gold
rush to Hollywood when, the talkie
rage starts. ,May opens up a voice
culture school. Jerry is the business
manager and George, dumb at every-
thing, decides the easiest thing to do
is to become. a technician. Of course,
authors Hart and Kaufman say,
nothing\ rubs according to schedule
in Hollywood, and just to keep the
truth of this statement, George is
made an executive-director of the
great industry. What happens after
that is nothing but laughs.
A cast of 0 heads the play, led by
Herbert Milliken, Harry Allen, Wil-

,Wells Criticizes King
George for His Policy
OXFORD, Eng., Aug. 1.-(A)-
Criticism of the King for 'the part he
played in the formation of the Na-
tional Government last year was ex-
pressed this afternoon by H. G. Wells
in an address at the Oxford Literal
Summer School.
Such criticism is most infrequent
in Great Britain. The auditors re-
ceived it in dead silence.
"The King was so ill-advised as
to depart from his proper political
and social neutrality and to lead

the movement for cheese paring and
grinding the faces of the needy in
the interest of the debt collector,"
Mr. Wells said, "and not a soul in
the Labor Party said what ought to

To Give Recital Tonight
The School of Music has invited

ond presidential election last April.
It is below the vote in the first presi-
dential election of March which to-
taled 86.2 per cent. In actual num-
ber of ballots cast, Hitler's vote in
the second presidential election was
almost identical with that which his
party received on Sunday. News-'
paper reports speak of from 27 to
62 parties contesting in the Reich-
stag election. Most of these were the
so-called "splinter parties" and the
real contest was between the six ma-
jor groups-the National Socialists,
Center P a r t y, Bavarian People's
Party, Social Democrats, and Com-
A ten day's truce has been declared
following the election in order to al-
lows political passions to cool off.
According to the constitution, the
new Reichstag must assemble within
30 days of the election. The forma-
tion of a new cabinet able to com-
mand the confidence of the legisla-
ture is likely to involve protracted
negotiations and may prove an utter
impossibility. Neither the groups of
the Right nor those of the Left have
enough to command a majority. As
usual, Bruening and the Catholics
occupy the key position. How far"
Bruening and Hitler will be willing
to work with each other remains to
be seen. It is conceivable that the
von Papen cabinet will be made over
so as to include some National So-
cialists. Such a Right Coalition
might be able to function for a time
with the "neutrality" of the Center1
Party, just as the Bruening cabinet
depended upon the neutrality of the
Social Democrat. The Center would
thus act as a check upon the Right
and at least the form of parliament-y
ary government would be preserved.
South Adopts
New Attitude,
On Education'
Pr~fessionalization Now i
,Advancing in Schools,
Bachnan Says
A review of the professionalization1
of state departments of education in
southern states was presented by Dr.1
Frank Bachman, director of surveysi
of the Georie Peabody College for
Teachers, yesterday in a 2 o'clock
lecture before the education school.
Dr. Bachman found that in 29]
states the chief of state officers were
elected by the people, in ten states
the tem of office was fixed at two
years, four states linited the salary;
to $2,000 and many frequently de-
fined the duties so as to make mod-
ernization difficult if not impossible.
At present, he declared, state su-1
perintendents are selected in 33
states by popular election, in seven
by the governor, in eight by state
"Conditions in the south are gen-
erally favorable to the development
of strong departments of education,"
Dr. Bachman said. "Everything is
comparatively new. There were no
professional courses in the state Uni-
versities prior to 1903, and the nor-
mal schools were not established
until after 1900.
"Until 1910, there was no profes-
sional spirit manifested. Then te
supervision of elementary schools was
taken over by the state and there
has' been an increasing tendency to-
ward professionalism. In 1918, state
supervisors of secondary education
were appointed, and in 1920, super-
visors of school house construction.
Divisions of research were added in
1922 with the result that schools
have been increasingly administered
on a professional basis.
"The whole tendency has been to
develop state-wide programs of edu-
cation and for the supervisors to get
away froni dealing with the indi-

vidual. The difference between the
political leadership in educational af-
fairs and professional has been that
the latter' has interested groups in
bettering their local conditions by
interest in educational movements
and not in petty affairs."

Series of Changes

President Says Reo-gani-

Aid Professional Studies
SEATTLE, AUG. 1.-(Special)-
Adoption of the two semester sys-
tem in place of the old four quarter
division of the school year in the fall
of 1933 will climax a long series of
drastic innovations which ,are in-
tended to revise completely the or-
ganization of the University of Wash-
ington here.
The change to the semester sys-
tim, according to Dr. M. Lyle Spen-
cer, president of the university, is
not primarily an economy move but
rather a development toward 'a new
educational concept. Theaideal be-
hind the whole movement, he said,
is to bring the art's and sciences into
their proper prespective.
Make Other Cbnages
Other changes in line with this
development have been adopted re-
cently by the board of regents. They
Combination of the 13 schools and
colleges into four units; provision for
only three elementary degrees, bache-
lor of arts, bachelor of scienceaand
bachelor of laws; elimination of in-
significant and "snap" courses; re-
striction of extra-curricular activi-
ties, such as/ athletics; and *ubstitu-
tion of hygiene classes for men's and
women's physical education courses.
While' the reorganization will min-
imize trade and professional courses
for the benefit of cultural subjects,
the plan will tend eventually to
strengthen rather than weaken pro-
fessional studies, Dr. Spencer be-
lieves. The new system aims to teach
the student to live rather than mere--
ly to make a living, he said.
Commenting editorially on the
plan, the University of Washington
Journal, undergraduate newspaper,
declared that "there can be little dis-
pute as to the advantages of the
Want Six-Week Summer School
Branding the four quarter system
as "distracting and unsatisfactory to
the conscientious student," the stu-
dent paper asserted that the system
"enables an inferior type of student,
by a judicious selection of miniature
courses, to graduate."
The Journal also proposed a six
or eight week summer session to
"create summer school courses of
real and lasting value."

/Aw Rats! d
They learn backward while the
human being learns frontwards. And
that goes a long way in explaining;
the reason why humans are much1
more intelligent, Prof. John F. Shep-
ard said yesterday in a University
In running a maze the rats learns
the last part first while the human,
learns the beginning first or both
ends at approximately the same rate.
This leads to the conclusion that
the human has a sense of values
which the rat cannot appreciate,
Professor Shepard said. The rat is
not able to organize the locations
from the starting point. It is this
ability' to evaluate things, to plan
life, which places man so far above
the other animals.
The rat is a tool for learning, Pro-
fessor Shepard said, as it gives the
psychologist a means of making com-
parisons with man. Many more fac-
tors can be controlled than in the
case of the human and that is why
the rat is used.
"We are interested in the analysis
of learning," said Professor Shepard,
"and that is possible only through a

such as the visual and olfactory

Metcalfe won the second 100-

typical finishing burst to come from
behind and win by inches from the
field. Yoshioka led from 50 to 90'
meters, but was overhauled both by
the Detroit Negro and by Joubert in
a blanket finish. Williams was beaten
out by inches, as he lost his first
championship. Barely a yard sepa-
