Professor Lauds Weimai'
Experiment as One of

Accusing France of striking a mor-

its invasion of the R ir, Dr. Here=
ward T. Price, associate professor of
English, in a lecture yesterday af-
ternoon in Natural Science auditor-
ium, lauded the Weimar experiment
of the German Socialists and Demo-
crats as one of the most notable ex-
periments of all time and as a great
adventure which will be remembered
with gratitude by all mankind in the

Dr. Price, was unstinting in his
praise of Ebert and the German So-
cialist party. He pointed out that
they might have resortpd to Lenin's
methods of violence in the establish-
rpent of the new government in 1918.
They were, plain, matter-of-fact
men, he said, who refused to gamble
and consequently let the people de;
cide' the course of German govern-
ment. Amdng the great difficulties
they faced, he declared, were the
problem of states' rights with the
practical Protestant North aligned
against the romantic' Catholic South
and, of still greater weight, the de-
mands of the German workingmen
for greater economic equality at a
time when Germany was' growing
steadily poorer.

Bonus Leader Joins Followers

(Associated Press Photo)
Walter W. Waters (right), leader of the bonus expeditionary force,
was greeted by Mayor Eddie McCloskey when he arrived in Johnstown,
Pa., by airplane from Washington. Part of the bonus army came to
Johnstown at the invitation of McCloskey after they had been routed
from Washington. Waters 1brought to the weary marchers news of a
refuge in Maryland'which had been deeded to them.

Hussey to Lecture

Prof. Russell C; Hussey, of the
geology department, will lecture at
5 o'clock this afternoon in Natural
Science auditorium on the topic "A
Geologist in' the Southwest." Pro-'
fessor Hussey's lecture will be
the responsibility. The Versailles
treaty horrified everyone including
the Socialists but they finally had to
sign it apd that act was never for-
gotten or forgiven especially by the
young people. of Germany. 'he So-
cialists under Ebert built up a neW
Germany based upon equality of op-
portunity and if the French had not
interfered they would haye succeed- .
ed. The invasion of the Ruhr was
the turning point in the history of
Europe. The Germans accepted it
because they could do nothing else
but the mark remained and' the
wound was bitter."
Dr. Price severly criticized the Von
Papen regime for .destroying the sys-
tem set up in the civil service by the
Socialists under which members of
the latter political faith were being
dismissed and the old basis for ap-
pointment by' family and Rightist
integrity were being re-established.,
He branded the Von Papen govern-
ment as being distinctly anti-Repub-
lican and a return to pre-war aris-
tocratic principles.
Attacks Hitle ,
Turning to Hitler, he described
the Nazi leader as being bitterly an-
ti-Jewish and ahti-socialist. Hitler,
he said, could not see why the Kaiser
had not exterminated the Jewish
"vermin" before 1914.
"He must have studied the meth-
ods of Lenin," he said, "for he speaks
of destroying all those who block his
path to po'wer. His is the most con-
tradictory program ever put forward.
He promises a development of the
peasant lands while, at the same, he
advocates the returning of this land
to the old landholders. His success
is based, on his power of oratory and
his adventurousness which appeals
to the young. He seems to fulfill all
the dreams of young Germany."

Says Schools
11 -South Crew
Up'bToo Rapidly
Bachiman Outlines Weak-
nesses Resulting fron
Quick Development
A ' too rapid development of high
schools 'in the South resulted in
weakness, according to Dr. Frank P.
Bachman, who spoke yesterday on
"Reorganization of High Schools."
The weaknesses discovered in surveys
were that the teachers were not well
trained, the principals were not well
trained, and the buildings and equip-
ment were not satisfactory.
The 'survey also revealed the fol-
lowing characteristics of American
high schools: there are many small
high schools, especially in the South,
everywhere in Anerica, the small
high schools ape the large ones in
curricular offerings, the offerings in
subjectumatter are beyond the capac-
ity of the number of teachers avail-
able, resulting in overloaded teachers
attempting to teach in fields for
which they were not trained.
The following principles were fol-
lowed in reconstruction of h i g h
schools in the South since 1920, ac-
cording to Dr. Bachman: (1) the
curriculum provided must depend on,
the number of teachers which can be
provided, and (2) teachers must be
trained to teach the subjects they are
asked to teach. The same principles
were also included in the new laws
of certification, he said.

Students Visit
Jackson Prison
Next Saturday
Eight Million Dollar Penal
Institution' Is Last Point
On Excursion List
On the last excurs:on of the Sum-
mer Session Saturday morning stu-I
dents will visit the new eight million
dollar state prison near Jackson.
The new prison is considered to be
representative of large modern-penal
institutions. Construction work on
the present plant was begun in 1924
and the major part of the work had
been completed in January of last
year. The prison' grounds cover an
area of 57 acres. When completed
the institution will contain fifteen.
cell blocks and house about 5,500
Prison statistics reveal that the
3798. convicts now held at Jackson
have been incarcerated for a total of
51 crimes ranging from violation of
the liquor law to first degree murder.
Forty-three foreign nations are
represented among the prison inhab-
itants, Canada topping the list with
141 representatives. 396 of the con-
victs are spending their second term
in Jackson, while 33 are there for
the third time and six for the fourth
time. One individual is "up" for his
fifth term. Orse hundred fifty-five of
the men are lifers, of which 110 are
first degree murderers.
Th( excursion party will leave
at 7:45 Saturday morning from
Angell hall and will return to the city
shortly after noon. Upon arriving at
the prison, officers will conduct the
students through the iron--barred
triple-gate entrance and around a
five-deck cell block. The > second
building to be visited is the textile
plant. Later the party will be con-
ducted through the auditorium, the
motion picture theater, the cafeteria
dining room, kitchens and bakery.
As the last feature of the trip stu-
dents will visit the 200-bed hospital,
school and prison offices. Students
will be given an opportunity to ask
questions of Capt. M. S. Hatch, who
will have charge of the party.

Platform Backers Turn
Meeting Into a Bomb-
Throwing Contest
Republicans Face
Brunt of Attack'
Socialism Is Attacked by
Communist Speaker at
Session Here
Purported t be non-partisan, a
symposium of party platforms in the
Natural Science auditorium 1 a s t
night, became a political bomb-
throwing contest with charges of
"feeble, sell-out, hypocrisy, horrible,
and non-committal," being freely
hurled by representatives of four dif-
ferent, parties. The auditorium was
Republicanism, as the party in
power, bore the brunt of the attack
by Democrat, Socialist, and Com-
munist spokesmen, while the Com-
munist speaker denounced even the
Socialist party as the instrument of
capitalism. Consideration of plat-
forms, with the exception of the Re-
publican speaker, came only after
virulent denunciation of other part-
Republicanism, however, in the
person of Mayor H. Wirt Newkirk, of
Ann Arbor, refused to be questioned
in the 10 minute period which fol-
lowed the presentation of t h e
In addition to Mayor Newkirk,
James H. Baker, delegate to the
Democratic convention, Neil Staebler,
Ann Arbor business man and dele-
gate to the Socialist convention, and
B. Reynolds, Communist candidate
for state governor, spoe.
Socialism was quoted as standing
f r nationalization of industry,
minimum wage laws, seep income
and inheritance taxes, six hour day-
five day week, and a tax on govern-
ment securities.
Republicanism rested much of its
plea for support on the fact of its'
56 years of leadership in the past 72
years. Protective tariff, strongscur-
rency, and coippletion 'of the St.
Lawrence waterway project, which
Mayor Newkirk affirmed would be
easily ratified by the Senate, were
among the other planks presented.
Democrats, Baker said, advocate a
reduction in the bureaucracy at
Wshington and at Lansing where,
he asserted there are now 12,000 of-
fice holders. He labelled the Volstead
act as "dishonest" because of its one
and one-half of one per cent provi-
sion and declared for absolute re-
peal of the 18th Amendment with
legislation to permit the manufac-
ture of beer which the repeal was be-
ing carried out. Baker also said, "I
see no reason why the nations of
Europe should not pay their debts
to us. He avocated a free trade
Reynolds, the Communist spokes-
man, levelled charges of betrayal at
the other three parties.
Commnism in America, he con-
tinued, stands for unemployment' in-
surance, no wage cuts, relief of the
farmers with a prohibition on the
forceful collection of debts and rents,
equal rights for negroes, and opposi-
tion to imperialistic war. He ,made
much of the "Battle of Washington"
in connection with the bonus army
riots and accused the other three
parties of being on the side of the
"machine guns and tanks."

With the completion of Hutchins hall next February, in time $or occu-
pation in the tsecond semester, all lout one of the new Law Quadrangle
buildings, given by W. W. Cook, will have been completed, and Michigan
will have one of the best law schools in the country, materially as well as
Hutchins hall, named in honor of the memory ofIformer president
Marry Burns Hutchins, wlo was also dean of thb law school from 1895 to
1910, is the classroom building. Con- -

struction was begun over two years
ago, but had to be delayed the first
part of last year becguse of an ad-
justn'ient ii funds. Work is now
progressing rapidly, however, accord-
ing to Prof. E. B. Stason, and the
building should be ready in Febru-
The architectural style of Hutchins
hall is in harmony with the general
plan of the other buildings, but like,
the Legal Research library, leans
toward the Gothic and shows the
transition to the Elizabethan. In-
diana limestone and Massachusetts
granite were used in building the
The Hall will consist of four stories.
The first floor will be devoted to class
rooms, built on a slope on the audi-
torium plan. The second floor will
be made up of class rooms, seminar
rooms, a court room and a study
room. The third floor will be given
over entirely to administration, pro-
fessors' offices and a faculty library.
The Michigan Law Review and the
Michigan State Bar association head-
quarters will be housed on the fourth
floor, which contains also a few more
oflices. The basement will be de-
voted primarily to student rest rooms
and locker rooms.
In all there will be nine class
rooms and four seminar rooms, seat-
ing altogether about 1,100 students.
The study room will seat 224 per-
sons, and there will be about 30
offices with accommodations for
stenographic and clerical help. A
tunnel will connect the structure
with the Legal Research building to
the east..
Between five and seven millions of
dollars have been invested ,in the
Quadrangle so far, entirely the gift
of Mr. Cook, which covers two city
blocks. The other buildings are the
Lawyer's club, the John P. Cook
dormitory, and the Legal Research
building. There remains yet to be
constructed another dormitory on
the southeast corner of the Quadran-,
gle, opposite the Architectural col-
lege, which will complete the group.

champion by racing to decisive vic-
tory in the 200-meter flral. He won
the 100-meter Monday, thereby giv-

George Simpson finished second and
Ralph Metcalfe third. Arthur Jonath

of Argentina fifth, and Bill Walters
of South Africa sixth and last.
Tolan won going away. He came

never able to make up lost ground In
the final drive dispite a powerful ef-

College women get old ahead of
their time and the majority of them
are candidates for dissatisfaction and
degenerative diseases in their later
lives, Dr. Margaret Bell declared yes-
terday in an interview with the
"The majority of women with
vhom I came into contact," he said,
"are not in a satisfactory physical
condition. They do not lead well-
balanced lives and in later years they
will fall victim to such degenerative
diseases as kidney trouble, hardening
of the arteries, heart disease and a
general lack of snap and pep."
The difficulty lies in their point of
view, Dr. Bell continued. They focus
too much of their attention on the.
details of their work and become
martyrs to it. This is a result of poor
budgeting of time and ignoring the
physical aspect of their lives.
"Men, on the whole, live better
rounded lives than the women," Dr.
Bell said. They do not tend to iso-
late themselves and are more socially
