outstanding candidate for this office.,
He has been the leader on the floor
of the legislature in matters per-
taining to education, and in him

ness particularly fits him to preside
over the deliberations of the Sen-
ate.",

Smith Defeat
Called Victory
Of thePeople
Abbott Says Convention
Issue Was Between Big
Money, Public Interest
By JAMES INGLIS
Big business and its interests vs.
the rights of the common man was
the real point of clash in the Dem-
ocratic convention, in the estima-
tion of Horatio J. Abbott, national
committeeman from Ann Arbor, who
has just returned from Chicago.
Mr. Abbott, a strong Rooseveltian,
heralded the finis of the battle as
the return of party leadership into
hands of "real Democrats." Alfred
E. Smith's opposition to Roosevelt
was prompted largely, he said, by
the banking interests of New York
with whom Smith has long been as-
sociated.
Questioned as to whether the
Michigan delegation ever seriously
wavered from Roosevelt, Abbott said
that he personally was pleased when
the roll call was requested on the
second ballot as he thought it just
that every delegate should give his
choice. It was great to have the
unit rule however, he said, as it put
those eight and a half votes back
where they should, have been all
the time.
The two thirds rule, he indicated,
will be abolished some day.
Commenting on the weakness of
Roosevelt which has been charged
by certain writers, Abbott pointed to
the fact that the last time Roose-.
velt was elected Governor of New
York he polled a majority of 726,-
000 which was far in advance of
Smith's best showing which was a
majority of 385,000.
Abbott was appointed to two sub-
committees of the national commit-
tee. One was a groun of three to

Soviet Russia
Prominent Congressmen
Will Argue Recognition
Question Next Monday
Both Have Varied
Political Careers
Debate Is First of Three
Special Lectures to Be
Given During Summer
Two men conspicuous in the poli-
tical life of the country will debate
here next week on a question which
in recent years has brought from
all sides applause and protest.
The men are Sen. Smith W.
Brookhart, Republican, of Iowa, and
Rep. Hamilton Fish, Jr., of New
York. The question is that of rec-
ognition by the United States of
Soviet Russia.
They will debate on the night of
July 11-next Monday night-in Hill
auditorium, with Senator Brookhart
taking an affirmative stand and
Representative Fish opposing recog-
nition.
Representative Fish in particular
is well qualified to present his views
on the subject. As a member of the
seventy-first Congress, he was ap-
pointed chairman of a special House
committee to investigate communis-
tic activities in the United States.
The result of this investigation, car-
ried on over a period of months,
constitute almost 10ivolumes.
Had Colorful Careers
The congressional careers both of'
Brookhart and of Fish have been
colorful and varied. Active in Iowa
politics for many years, Brookhart'
is known as a "progressive" type
of Republican. He entered the 1920
senatorial race in Iowa, but was
defeated by the incumbent, Sen A.'
B. Cummins. In 1922 he was ap-
pointed to fill the vacancy caused
by the resignation of Sen. William3
S. Kenyon. He has served almost1
continuously since that time, but in;
the recent primary he was defeated.,
His term expires March 3, 1933.
An advocate of co-operative farm-'
ing and a champion of the cause of
the farmer, he immediately allied
himself with the "farm bloc" on his
entrance into Congress.
Fish is Veteran1
Representative Fish on the other
hand has been a member of every
Congress since the sixty-sixth, al-
though his legislative training start-
ed some years earlier, soon after his'
graduation from Harvard in 1910. A
son-in-law of Alfred Chapin, for-
mer mayor of Brooklyn, he first be-
came associated actively in politics
in New York state by election to the
assembly in 1914, a post he held un-
til 1916. He first entered Congress
when he was appointed to fill the
vacancy caused by the resignation;
of Edmund Platt.
The debate is the first of three
special lectures arranged for the;
Summer Session. Two others at in-
tervals of two weeks will see here
an illustrated lecture by the dean of
Arctic explorers, Capt. Donald B.I
MacMillan, and a lecture by Capt.
Carl von Hoffman, noted ethnolog-
ist.
Tickets for the Brookhart-Fish]
debate have been placed on sale at;
the box office of the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn theatre in the League and1
may be secured from 10 to 5 o'clock
daily.

Would Send Envoy
As a Preliminary
New York Industrialist
Lays Plan Before High
Soviet Authortiies
MOSCOW, July 5.-(AP)-Tenta-
tive and unofficial moves are being
made to reopen the question of for-
mal diplomatic relations between the
United States and Soviet Russia.
Acting alone in a private capa-
city, Col. Frederick Pope, New York
industrialist, has presented to offi-
cials a suggestion that the Ameri-
can government send an unofficial
commissioner to the Soviet Union as
a preliminary to possible negotia-
tions for the establishment of nor-
mal relations between the two coun-
tries.
The Associated Press has reason
to believe his proposal was received
with favor.
Col. Pope laid the matter last
night before a special meeting of
men high in the consuls of the Soviet
government. Among them were V.
L. Mexhlauk, vice-chairman of the
state planning commission, V. V.
Ossinsky, head of the American de-
partment of the Commissariat for
foreign affairs; and Carol Radek,
the country's foremost international
political commentator.
Wets to Begin
Congressional
Drive on Beer
Parties Prepare to Carry
Out Platform Pledges
On Liquor Question
WASHINGTON, July 5.-(AP)-
As an aftermath of the Chicago na-
tional convention, a drive was begun
in both houses of Congress today for
legislation to carry out platform
pledges for repeal or modification
of the prohibition laws.
Developments in Washington were
many as both sides in the prohibi-
tion argument aligned their forces
and maneuvered for position.
Organized drives were decided to
plan the Presidential campaign stra-
tegy at a meeting here next week.
Taking the offensive, anti-prohi-
bitionists on capitol hill began moves
for repeal of the 18th amendment
as well as for legalization of beer.
Senator Barour (R., New Jersey)
asked unanimous consent to a mo-
tion to discharge the judiciary com-
mittee from further consideration
of his repeal resolution, but Senator
Sheppard (R., Tex.,) co-author of
the 18th amendment, promptly ob-
jected.

A closer relationship between the
program of the school and the pro-
gram of the community was stressed
by Frederick L. Redefer, executive
secretary of the Progressive Educa-
tional association, in a talk yester-
day on the work of the association.
Other problems which Redefer
discussed as pertaining to present
day education were the need for re-
lating school subjects to one an-
other, making a broad attack on

fundamental problems in present-
day life, providing a large amount
of co-operative and creative activity
on the part of pupils, and giving
pupils a clear picture of the civiliza-
tion in which they now live.
"Progressive education is a move-
ment which looks upon education
as an experiment," stated Redefer,

panied by slides of the manuscripts
and well-known events of the -time.
The talk included events of thec
French and Indian war and thes
American Revolution.1
The lecture was so arranged that
a picture of the event and then a1
slide of the manuscripts were shown
Shull Will Lecture
Today on 'Heredity'
Prof. A. Franklin Shull, of the
zoology department, will lecture
at 5 o'clock this afternoon in f
Natural Science auditorium on
the topic, "Heredity Goes to
Court." The address will be il-
lustrated.
Professor Shull has been on the
University teaching staff since
1911, was president of the Michi-
gan Academy of Science in 1922,
is author of "Heredity," and has
written numerous articles on sex
determination, heredity and evo-
lution. He is also co-author of
"Laboratory Directions in Prin-
ciples of Animal Biology," and
"Principles of Animal Biology.",
alternately. These manuscripts are
the main source of historical infor-
mation on the events of the time.
One of the most interesting slides
was the Paul Revere engraving of
the Boston Masscre in which the
British captain, Thomas Preston, is
shown directing his soldiers. This
slide was followed by a copy of the
letter which Capt. Preston wrote de-
scribing his part in the affair.
All of the slides used were the
property of the Clements library,
and are of manuscripts owned in
the state of Michigan.
Observatory Will Hold
Visitor's Night Monday
Next Monday, Tuesday, and Wed-

at. the Observatory as "visitor's
night." Each summer 500 students
are permitted to take advantage of
this opportunity.
Cards must be obtained at the
Summer Session office by those
planning to attend. It was urged
yesterday that students start regis-
tering at once as each year many
are disappointed since only a limit-
ed number can be accomodated.

3 Hours Late
Griffin and Mattern Off
Across Atlantic After
Battle, with Heavy Fog
Over Harbor Grace
Face Bad Weather
On Ocean Crossing
Hope to Break Mark Set
Last Year by Post and
Gatty; Expect to Reach
Berlin in 15 Hours
HARBOR GRACE, N. F., July 5.-
(AP)-Capt. Bennett Griffin a n d
James Mattern were over the broad
Atlantic tonight headed for Europe
on the second leg of their projected
around the world flight against time
and the record of Wiley Post and
Harold Gatty.
The two American fliers, who left
New York early today and reached
Harbor Grace after being lost in fog
banks that left them three hours
behind the record holders at this
point, had refreshments, refueled,
and in approximately two hours
more were headed east with one
thought predominant; "W want to
get there, that's all."r
At their departure from New York,
the fliers said, the weather was per-
fect, but as they neared Nova Scotia
they encountered the fog. They tried
to climb over it and then to get un-
der it, but finally were forced to fly,
blindly for an hour and a half.
Face Bad Weather
They were forced to drop a note
near Cape Freels to ascertain the
direction to Harbor Grace and then
over-flew their destination by more
than one hundred miles before they
turned around and finally landed
here.
The weather at Harbor Grace was
very bad, worse, in fact, than any
other day an ocean plane came here.
After taking on refreshments for
their long ocean hop the fliers got
away at 4:49 p. m. (E.S.T.) They
said they hoped to make Berlin or
some other European port in fifteen
hours, although they took on suflici-.
ent gasoline for twenty-five hours
of flying.
Before their departure from Har-
bor Grace, reports were received
that bad weather extended half
across the ocean but the rest of the
way was experiencing fair weather.
Fliers Are Fearless
Their food supply included sand-
wiches, chocolate, o r a n g e s and
water. Both fliers appeared fear-
less of the bad weather reports, and
were impatient to get away. Unlike
other trans-Atlantic fliers who head-
ed southeast, Griffin and Mattern
flew due east and then crossed
southeast before being lost to view.
They hoped to break the mark of
Post and Gatty whose record for
a round-the-world flight is eight
days, fifteen hours, andh51 minutes.
Post and Gatty's time from New
York to Harbor Grace was 6 hours,
52 minutes, while the time of Griffin
and Mattern for the same leg was
10 hours, 37 minutes.
Wants Change

Of CurCulum
In Education
Citing six factors which schools
must consider in planning their
physical education department, Prof.
Jackson R. Sharman, yesterday ad-
dressed the education conference in
University High school on "Cur-
rent Criticisms and Needs of Physi-
cal Education."
Scientific research and curriculum
reorganization were the first two
factors stressed by Professor Shar-
man. "The program," he said,
"must be based on facts supplied by
agencies for experimentation and
research, both within and without
the school. The school organization
must make arrangements for con-
ducting studies and evaluating prac-
tices."

University Joins Price-Cutting
Rush; Offers Falls Tour at $15,

Even the University Summer Ses-
sion has joined the mad rush of
business in cutting prices.
This week-end students will have
the opportunity to visit Niagara
Falls via special coach on the Michi-
gan Central railroad with all ex-
penses paid for the sum of $15.
Hotel accommodations will be ar-
ranged by Carlton F. Wells, secre-
tary of the Summer Session, and
every little detail will be worked out
in order that the students may not
miss the 14-mile trip down the gorge,
a steamer ride on the "Maid of the
Mist," and a mystic trip into the
"Cave of the Winds."
Prof. William H. Hobbs, head of
the geology department and inter-
nationally known scientist, will per-

"During the 14-mile gorge trip on
Saturday afternoon a special car will
be used, and stops will be made at
important points for interpretation
of the geologic history of Niagara
Falls there illustrated. This trip
will probably be preceded by an in-
spection of the large model of the
Niagara Falls area, where the salient
points will be discussed.
"The gorge route begins at a point
near the International bridge a short
distance below the falls. From here
