Hear Talk On

Photographer Catches Johnson In Pleasant Humor

Dr. George Wilson
History Of War


Nations' Armament
Expenses Are High
First International Peace
Meeting Was Called By
Russian Czar
Dr. George Grafton Wilson, pro-
fessor of international law at Har-
vard University and a member of the
teaching staff of the Summer Ses-
sion on Teaching International Law
now assembled here, delivered an ad-
dress last night on "Disarmament."
The speaker traced briefly the his-
tory of the problem and discussed
the numerous conferences of nations
held for its discussion and solution.
"The military expenditures of the
United States in 1922 were nearly
$850,000,000 and in 1932 the appro-
priations were not much decreased.
The wolrld! cost of armaments in
- 1932 was about $4,500,000,000, and in
1898 the United States military ex-
penditures were $150,000,000," he
Proposed by Czar in 1898
It was in 1898 that the Russian
Czar proposed the first international
peace conference, which assembled
at The Hague with the intention of
considerig "reduction of excessive
armaments which were burdening all
nations," Dr. Wilson. stated.
This meeting made contributions
along certain lines and agreed that
restrictions of military budgets would
be desirable, but accomplished no
such restrictions.
The year 1907 saw the gathering
of 47 powers for the second confer-
ence at The Hague, which accomp-
lished little more than an elabora-
tion of the work of its predecessor.
He described their work as "taking
steps in the direction of limitation
without any actual curtailment."
Calls Versailles Effective
"A very effective disarmament of
the Central Powers was accomplished
by the Treaty of Versailles," Dr. Wil-
son' declared. This pact, formulated
at a meeting following the World
War, recognized "that- the reductions
of national armaments to the lowest
point consistent with national saf-
ety" was highly desirable.
In 1921 the United States called
the Washington Conference for the
purpose of limiting naval armaments
effectively in capital ships. It was
here that the now famous threea
power 5-5-3 treaty was accomplished
and the eight represented nations
concentrated on "physical, as well as
moral, disarmament," the speaker
Little Done at Geneva
He termed the work of the Geneva
conference of 1927 as having little
value other than determining what
\should not be done. However, the
meleting in London in 1930 extended
the naval limitation and naval holi-
day, poth of which were worked out
at the Washington session.
At the most recent general disarm-
ament conference at Geneva in Feb-
ruary, 1932, where 60 states were
represented certain plans were
brought forward by the preparatory
commission of the League of Nations.
"Here the French demanded security,
the Italians sought disarmament, the
Germans desirediequality, and the
Russians offered abolition of all mil-
itary force, aid the conference ad-
journed without becoming satisfied
as to any one satisfactory method,"
Dr. Wilson declared.
He predicted that "the next gen-
eral conference may be a much
greater success by virtue of the work
of previous sessions in gathering ma-
terial on disarmament and distribut-
ing knowledge of the problems of the
various nations."

Nearly Perfect W

time) to take off on his strato-
sphere flight in one hour.

CHICAGO, Aug. 4.-(A1)-A mam-
moth balloon was ready tonight to
soar up from the earth, swinging a
young naval officer away toward the
moon on an uncharted journey into
Scientists hoped the flight would
take him 10 miles and more abovel
the earth-into the stratosphere, the
layer of nothingness where they be-
lieve rests the answer to the riddle1
of the cosmic ray.
Nearly perfect weather conditions,
for which he had delayed for weeks,'
caused Lieut. Coin. T. G. W. Settle
to decide before noon today that he
would depart at 11:00 p. m. (Central
Daylight Time) on his epic adven-
ture into the skies.
His decision reached, the balloont
riding champion retired to rest forj
the nerve-racking trip of from 20 to
30 hours., 'A ground crew of 100 men
watched his craft in Soldiers Field
at the World's Fair grounds, into,
which poured thousands of specta-
tors to see the start of the venture.
A high pressure area over the mid-
west was the most important factor]
in the weather. Government weather:
observers had charted the western
hemisphere to make sure of favorable1
atmosphere conditions.
Settle, advised by Auguste Piccard,
pioneer explorer of the stratosphere,
chose night time for his takeoff of
temperature conditions.
During the cool hours of darkness,
the balloon, so large that a full acre
of fabric was required to coverit,
was expected, to float, about 15,000
feet above the earth.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4. - (P) -
Leadership in the Federal govern-
ment drive against organized crime
was assumed today by Raymond
Moley, assistant secretary of state,
with announcement that he would
not concern himself with individual
cases, such as the O'Connell kidnap-
ing at Albany.
Moley, who moved into the justice
department under special assignment
from President Roosevelt, to fight
racketeering, kidnaping, and gang-
ster activities, will direct his efforts
toward co-ordinating the law en-
forcement agencies of the Federal
and state governments.
An emphatic "no" was Moley's re-
ply to questions as to whether he
would resign from the state depart-
ment in the face of reported differ-
ences with Secretary Hull.
The assistant secretary assumed
his new task with a show of eager-
ness, but warned against expecting
any sudden or immediate results in
the drive against organized crime.

Untruth Error x
In Propaanda,
Bates Contendsx
Says Radicals Making A
Tactical Mistake When.
They Exaggerate
Untruth and exaggeration are thet
great sins of proletarian propaganda,t
in- the opinion of Prof. Earnest ,.
Bates, who spoke yesterday afternoon
on "Art and Propaganda" on the
Socialist Club series. "I say this not
from a moral viewpoint," he stated,
"but simply out of the belief that
they are errors tactically'" -__-
Professor Bates cited the appeal to
the emotions which the British made
during the War through fabricated
tales of atrocity as propaganda at its
Upton Sinclair, noted radical writ-
er, is unwise in this way, he said.
"With no intent to be untruthful,1
Sinclair produces that effect by want-
ing us to believe that all capitalists
are evil and act with conscious mal-
evolence, while we know them to bet
at worst only blind or stupid."
"Another weakness in proletarian
literature," he said, "is that it is as-
siciated with the post-ward litera-
ture of rebellion - Sinclair . Lewis,
Sandburg, and Dreiser in his early
period - writers who are defeatists,,
interested mainly in negative pro-
grams. The sex problem and the hero
who is a helpless victim of society
are too common in America's prole-
tarian writings - I should like to see
more heroic figures in the stories,
men who are confident of victory in
the future, if not immediate victory."
Dangers in the future of proletari-
an writing, he said, are that authors
may concentrate too much on the
social order at the expense~.of the in-
dividual, and that in the event of
revolutionary changes in America,
proletarian propagandists may try to
abridge free-speech as their own has
been abridged.

plan for a new agency within the
industrial recovery administration,
designed- to prevent labor troubles
such as the Pennsylvania bituminous]
coal strike, was reported to have
been carried to Hyde Park by
General Hugh S. Johnson tonight
for President Roosevelt's approval.
The agency, it was said, was
planned to give what one labor
leader described as "intelligent treat-
ment" to labor problems arising as
the President's industrial recoivery .
program went forward.
Better co-operation between the1
administration, employers, and em-
ployees was said to be another ob-
The coal strike was understood to
have prompted the new proposal. i
Already the recovery administra-
tion has taken one such step towards
industrial peace by writing into the
cotton textile code a provision for a
national industrial relations board,1
with subsidiary state boards linked
to committees in individual' mills,
through which all labor disputes in
the industry are to be handled.
L. L. Hubbard,
Former Regent,
s.Dead At 84 .
Was Active On Board Up
Until Jan. 8; Succumbs
HOUGHTON, Aug.. 4.-(P)-Dr.1
Lucius L. Hubbard, Ph.D., a regent,
of University of Michigan from 1910i
until this year, died late Thursday
night at the summer home of his
daughter, Mrs. Harry S. Goodall, at
Eagle Harbor. He was 84 years old.
Appointed to the board of regents,
by Gov. Chase S. Osborn, Dr: Hub-
bard resigned' last Jan. 8 because
of ill-health. His condition had not
been considered serious, however, and
death came unexpectedly.
Born in Cincinnati in 1849, he was
graduated from Harvard university
in 1872 and was state geologist for
Michigan from 1895 to 1899. Then
he resigned to become general man-
ager of the Champion Copper Co., on
Michigan's copper range.
He was the author of several books
on mineralojogy anc geology and
from 1905 until 1917 was a member
of the board of control of t' Mich-
igan School of Mining and Technol-
ogy here. His home was in Hough-

Europe In Advance
Of United States In
Big Housing Work
The United States, as far as mass
housing for factory workers is con-
cerned, lags far behind the countries
of Europe, according to Prof. Wells
I. Bennett and the pictorial evidence
he used to illustrate his lecture on
the subject in the . Architectural
Building yesterday.
"In England, where large scale
housing has been carried on for 40
years," he said, "entire cities have
been laid out on the park plan with
winding roadways and landscaped
grounds. Many of these 'gardene
cities' are extremely picturesque."t
Professor Bennett described andr
exhibited slides of several of these
municipalities, including those at
Port Sunlight, near Liverpool; Wel-
don, and Watling. Since the war, her
said, England has built 1,000,000
houses, and while Germany has
doubled this figure, it is to be attrib-
uted chiefly to the fact that the
post-war *Overnment of Germany
was strongly socialistic.
War Promises Give Impetus
In England, a great impetus to the
building program was given by thes
fact that the government had prom-
ised the soldiers homes after the
war, and also by the factpthat the
greatly increased poorer populationt
felt a severe need for better housing,
he said.
English builders have tried brick,
steel, and 'concrete. in their mass7
housing projects, according to Pro-
fessor Bennett, but found brick
cheapest and most satisfactory. Steelf
plate houses were found to be un-
satisfactory because of the resonant
qualities, while concrete required in-~
ordinate maintenance costs.
Germans Very Active
"Germany," Professor Bennett said,f
"is the mecca of students of housing.
Particularly at Frankfort - on - the -
Main have many forward stridesy
beeen made. The Germans have been
very active in developing ventilationE
in housing projects and have done
more than the English in the way of
modern design and sientific plan-
ning of their housing layouts."
Collective housing establishments;
on the outskirts of Vienna and those
in Amsterdam were also pointed out
as noteworthy. Holland, said Profes-
sor Bennett, is especially progressive
n the thoroughness with which it has
worked out concentrated housing for
the Coorer classes
Central Unit Used
"The slum-clearance schemes em-
ployed at The Hague," he said, "have
{ been very carefully worked out' to
prevent the intermingling of unsocial
families with others. The Dutch in
this case used the central control unit
plan, by which the entire block of
residences radiates from a single cen-
tral hub."
France Professor Bennett called the
last of the great nations to under-
take planned large scale housing.
The French, he said, were under the
necessity after the war of spending
so much money on rehabilitating the
battlefields that little in this line
could be done. Now, however, they
have begun several outstanding proj-
ects, mostly undertaken b6y corpora-
tions acting for municipalities.

Advanced Studies Will Be
Arranged In Cities With
Proper Facilities
Only One Definitely
Set Is For Detroit
Huber Says Grad School
Faculty Will Supervise
Students' Work
In response' to requests from stu-
dents in certain populated areas of
the state, the executive board of the
Graduate School has approved the
establishment of centers for grad-
uate study in cities which have the
necessary facilities for advanced
work, it was learned yesterday.
At present, the only graduate
study center which has been def-
nitely established is in Detroit.
Regular residence credit in the
rather limited field of courses offered
will be given to those who take work
in the centers and who have met the
usual admission requirements! of the
Graduate School. They must also be
or become matriculants of the Uni-
versity and must be' registered as,
students in the Graduate' School..
According to Dean G. Carl Huber
of the Graduate School,' it will be
arranged to have' a representative
of thegteaching staff of the school
visit the centers at certain specified
times to confer with the stuets
concerning credentials, programs of
work, and other pertinent matters.
The details of class organization, an-
nouncement of courses, collection of
fees, and payment of instructors will
be handled by the Extension Divi-
sion, he said.
The work presented will be offered
by members of the faculty here. Un-
der certain conditions, members of
other college faculties may also teach
at the centers.
Among the subjects of courses to
be offered in Detroit for which grad-
uate credit will be given are business
administration, decorative design,
economics, education, electrical engi-
neering, mechanical engineering, en-
gineering mechanics, Eng'Ish, fine
arts, history, landscape design,
mathematics, philosophy, political
science, sociology, and zoology.
Educators Will Go
Picnicking Monday
Concluding the activities for the
Summer Session of the Men's Edu-
cation Club, members of the group
and their friends will hold a picnic
Monday afternoon at Manny's Inn'
on Pleasant Lake.
Plans have been made for numer-
ous games, 'to include volley ball,
quoits, and boseball4 according to
Prof. Thomas Diamond of the voca-
tional education department. Trans-
portation .to the lake, which is 13
miles from Ann Arbor, will be pro-
vided for those who do not wish to
drive, he said.
A representative of the club will be
in front of the Union between 4 and
5 p. m. Monday to supervise the load-
ing of cars, Professor Diamond said,
and those who have cars will stop
there in order to pick up others wish-
ing rides.
