Policy Statement.

Will Outline Prohibition'
Record of Candidates
For Public Office
WASHINGTON, July 15.-(AP)-
A declaration of principles to guide
campaign was adopted today by the
National Prohibition Board of Stra-
tegy, after it had rejected a proposal
that President Hoover be immedi-
ately indorsed for re-election.
The text of the policy statement
was withheld for the time being,
but it was clearly indicated its
principal recommendation was for
submitting statements outlining the
prohibition records of the candidates
to member organizations and to all
interested persons.
This was intended to apply to
candidates for the Senate House and
State Legislatures, as well as to the
Republican and Democratic Presi-
dential nominees..
Board Submits Platform
The text was submitted this after-
noon to the National Conference of
Organizations Supporting the Eigh-
teenth Amendment,. for which the
Board serves as an Executive Com-
mittee. No action by the larger
group was intended, however, as the
Board acts for it.
A group led by Bishop James Can-
non, Jr., of the Methodist Episco-
pal Church, South; and Dr. Clar-
ence True Wilson, secretary of the
Board of Temperance, Prohibition
and Public Morals of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, that opposed any
immediate declaration for Mr. Hoo-
ver, holding that such action should
be deferred until the Chief Execu-
tive makes a personal statement of

French Government Says
Europe Does Not Want
To Unite Forces
PARIS, July 15.-(AP)-French
governmental circles today empha-
sized that it was far from the inten-
tion of European powers to form a
united front against the United
States on the matter of war debts.
Any assertion, it was added, that
Great Britain, under the recent
Franco-British consultative p a c t,
would be restricted in dealing with
the British debts to the United
States, was totally absurd.
Such a statement-that G' r e a t
Britain could not settle their Amer-
ican debts without consulting France
-was attributed to Premier Edouard
Herriot on Wednesday by the Havas
(French new agency) and was con-
sidered semi-official at the time.
The French government did not
issue a denial that the Premier had
made such an assertion in reporting
the accord to the finance commit-
tee of the Chamber of Deputies.
But it was officially stated that
considerable embarrassment h a d
been caused by the importance given.
by the press to "an apparently
false version" of what the Premier
had .said.

WASHINGTON, July 15.-(AP)-
For the first time in history .a Presi-
dent of the United States today or-
dered his own pay cut,' arranging
to send back to the Treasury $15,-
000 of his $75,000 annual stipend.
Nobody else could cut it for him,
the Constitution itself preventing,
but Congress in the #National Eco-
nomy Act, which prescribed pay re-'
ductions for almost everyone - else
in the Government service, gave
specific sanction to President Hoo-
ver's voluntary r e t u r n of any

about $2,500 a year.
Mr. Hoover had told his friends
during the battle on Capitol Hill
over pay cuts for Government work-
ers that he would be glad if neces-
sary to turn back his entire salary

Assailing the administration for its
previous handling of the question oft
unemployment, Eugene Brock, De-t
troit writer and admitted progres-z
sive Republican, yet recommended
most of the provisions of the pres-
ent relief legislation, administration
sponsored, which is now before Con-1
gress, at a meeting sponsored by the
student socialist club of the Univer-t
,"Their theory has been," he said,
"that the way to help the poor is to
help the rich. The remedy must be,
instead, jobs."
For immediate relief he suggested
a program of public works to be car-a
ried out under the direction of the
federal government. Currency ex-
pansion, rather than a bond issue,
should be the method employed in
paying for this construction, he as-
serted, although, he admitted, the{
federal government is the only agen-
cy in the country with sufficient
credit and public confidence to carry
through a loan for such a project.
Brock, however, set the figure for
e x p a n s i o n at $5,000,000,000, fivej
times the amount stipulated in the,
Congressional bills now under dis-
cussion. "We do not need to worry,"
he said further, "about the govern-
ment being unable to pull the switch
on the printing press when the de-
sired amount has been printed." .
For permanent relief, Brock point-
ed out that when normal business
conditions have been reached as a
result of inflation and consequent-
price level rises, the government
must exert greater control over in-
dustrial production than has been
exerted in the past. He recalled the
war tinme conditions when the gov-
ernment took over the virtual direc-
tion of most of the major industries
in the country and said that "the
present condition is much more ser-
ious than war."
"The f e d e r a 1 government," he
continued, "alone has the power to
cope with this situation at the risk
of a possible constitutional infringe-
ment. Factors which must be. We
must have the laying off of hours
rather than the laying off of men."
Although Brock's announced topic
was the "Unemployment Situation
from the Viewpoint of a Socialist,"
he pronounced his afflication with
Republican progressivism and spoke
on the "Viewpoint of a Progressive."

The second of the summer lec-,
tures--a lecture illustrated with mo-
tion pictures-will be helc Monday
night, July 25, in Hill auditorium,
with Commander Donald B. Mac-
Millan, -dean of Arctic explorers,
speaking on "My 24 Years of Arctic
A brilliant speaker, MacMillan is
the third explorer within the past
year to appear in Ann Arbor. Pre-
ceding him were Commander Rich-
ard Evelyn Byrd and Sir Hubert
The lectures, which, in addition to
MacMillan, already have presented
Sen. Smith W. Brookhart and Rep.
Hamilton Fish, Jr., in a debate, and
which will present on August 8 a
lecture by an adventurer, Capt. Carl
von Hoffman, were arranged by
those in charge of the 'Summer Ses-
sion in order to bring before stu-
dents not enrolled in the regularj
academic. sessions the outstanding
platform talent of the United States
and Europe.
Commander MacMillan has made,
in 24 years eight trips into the Arc-
tic regions. His first was as an as-.
sistant in the Peary north polar ex-
pedition in 1908-09. Since then he
has risen from a member of an ex-
pedition to the leader of one, his
last being the Labrador-Baffin Land
aerial expedition in 1931.
Not only is he an explorer and lec-
turer, but an educator and author
as well. He -is a professor of ethno-
graphy at, Bowdoin College, where'
he obtained thedegrees of A.B.,
M.A., and Sc.D. He has also done
graduate work at Harvard and suc-
cessively has been principal of a
high school in Maine and of the
classical department' at the Swarth-
more (Pa.) preparatory school. His
books. have included those of "Four
Years in the White North," "Etah
and Beyond," and "Kahda."
In 1927 CommanderdMacMillan
was awarded the Elisha Kent Kane
gold medal "for daring exploration
and scientific research."

The University of Michigan Green-

about latitude 74 degrees north.
They are Evans S. Schmeling, assist-

Herbert S. 'Gardner, a junior in the
They are going up on the S. S.
Morrisey with Captain R. A. (Bob)
Bartlett together with the Peary
Memorial expedition who plan to set
up a monument to Peary. Dr. Ralph
L. Belknap, director of the expedi-
tion and professor geology here, will
accompany them as engineer and
will not return to the base till about
the first of September. Max H.
Demorest, sepior in the University,
who is now in the geological camp
in Kentucky, will leave New -York
after the camp session is over on
board the S. S. St. Louis of the
Hamburg American line to Copen-
hagen. There he will probably be
joined by Karl V. Hansen; the radio
operator. They will go on to Uper-
nivik about 140 miles from the base.
From Upernivik they will go to the
base, the upper Nugssuak peninsula
by motor boat.
The main purpose of the expedi-
tion is to establish a weather station
similar to those established by Pro-
fessor Hobbs on earlier expeditions
but it will be much farther north
than any of the former expeditions.

anywhere where there was such a
deep-seated respectful attitude to-
ward those who attend church serv-
ices. When a church is crowded on
Sunday, he said, that fact -does not
arouse opposition as in other places.
"A majority of the people of Ann,
Arbor go to church somewhere at
sometime," Dr. Fisher said. "You
take all the church services through-
out the year and you will find that
a majority of the people including
the students attend church services
atlst oAnce duiring the Year. Many

haven't been brought up in religion.
Life is a matter of habit. But we
within the church must be as toler-
ant as those outside. Because a man;
does not go to church we cannot say;
that he is no good. In the Western
world we have built up a great scien-
tific era of prosperity. People found
money, home and social position suf-
ficient. They got on without re-
ligion. The depression has brought
a return to the church. A true re-
ligion enables a man to stand any-
thing that happens to him."
In discussing the 'religion of those
persons who do not attend church,
Dr. Fisher said that many find their.
religion in a humanist attitude to-
ward life, others in social realtion-
