Abandon Plan To Fly To
India Because Of Gas
DAMASCUS, Syria, Aug. 7.-(')-
The airplane Joseph Lebrix, piloted
by the Frenchmen Maurice Rossi and
Paul Codos, landed at the Military
Airfield at Rayak, 79 miles from here
at 1':10 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
The fliers are believed to have shat-
tered the world distance record by
nearly 600 miles.
The airplane which left New York
Saturday inorning, -crossing the At-
lantic, passing over Paris and Central
and Southeast Europe, was in the air
The French airmen abandoned their
plan to fly to India because of the
more rapid consumption of gas than
had been anticipated, which was
thought to be due to evaporation be-
causeof unusually hot weather.
Reports received here said that
Rossi and Codos made an excellent
landing and still had gAsaline in their
tanks when they came down. Govern-
ment officials declared that the world
distance record had been broken,,al-
though the exact comparative figures
were not available.
While flying over Latakia, Syria,
the Frenchmen sent a'message which
"In one hour we will land at Rayak
as the .result of very abnormal gaso-
line consumption. Nevertheless, the

a distance of about 5,900 miles or
about 594 miles farther than the pre-

Hear Talk On
Professor Reeves Speaks"
On History Of Bolivia,
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, head of the
department of political science and
dean of the Summer Session on
Teaching International Law, ad-
dressed the. members of the confer-
ence last night on "The Chaco and
Leticia .Disputes," in the sixth of a
series of .eight public lectures.
"These treaties have been nego-,
tiated between Paraguay and Boli-.
via dividing the Chaco, but none has
been ratified. Clashes between the
military forces of the two countries
have repeatedly occurred, and war,
has now been declared by Paraguay
against Bolivia. However, both bel-
ligerants at present seem to be,.
stale-mated," he said.
Professor Reeves described the lo-
cation of the area as being a vast
tract lying west of the River Para-
guay and north of the Pilcomayo
River. The Chaco is a territory large-
ly unsettled and never thoroughly ex-
plored, about the size of the state
of Colorado. It is probably the larg-
est area in the world; concerning
which there is disputed title.

Players To Do
C. L. Anthony's
Ella Haith and Lauren Gilbert will
lead the cast for this week's produc-
tion by the Michigan Repertory Play-
ers. "Autumn Crocus," the. eighth
play of the summer series, in a senti-
mental comedy by a new English
playwright, C. L. Anthony. It will be
staged by Valentine B. Windt.
"Autumn Crocus" was produced in
New York during the past season by
Basil Dean. Starring Francis Lederer
and Dorothy Gish, it was one of the
most popular plays on Broadway. The
Repertory Players have secured spe-
cial permission to include the play
in their summer repertoire.:
Other members of the Repertory
Players' cast include Frederic O.
Crandall, Jack B. Nestle, Uldean
Huht, Morris Greenstein, Nancy
Bowman, Maude Meikle, Velma Reed,
Sarah Pierce, and Dorothy M. Crane.
Laid, in the -Austrian Tyrol, the
storyof "Autumn Crocus" presents
the sentimental love plot of an Eng-
lish school mistress' infatuation for
a peasant innkeeper. The settings,
which include the living room of an
inn,-a mountain shrine, and.a bal-
cony scene, were designed by Oren
Pairker, of the Repertory Players'
Officers Find Footprints
Of Burglar; Enters By
Breaking In Window
A possible end to the series of cam-
pus robberies of this summer was
seen last night when local authorities
obtained a description of the man
who entered the Collegiate Sorosis
sorority house at 1501 Washtenaw
Ave., early Sunday evening and
escaped with a small amount of cash.
It was believed that the intruder,
whom the occupant of the hoise de-
scribed as a short negro, is linked
with the five other fraternity and
sorority burglaries, which have oc-
curred this summer.
Several women were awakened by
the noise of the man entering their
room shortly after.-10:15 p. in., and
although they were too frightened to
scream for help, the knowledge that
he had awakened them in breaking
through the screened window appa-
rently scared the intruder away be-
fore he could obtain- any large
amount of cash.
The chaperone at the house, Mrs.
Paul Roberson, told The Daily last
night that the doors of the sorority
were locked, and there were lights on
the first floor and in several of the
Police officers, called to the scene,
discovered the prints of rubber-soled
shoes on the ground below the win-
dow the man entered.
Members of Prof. Gail E. Dens-
more's class in debate teaching and
coaching presented a public debate
at 7:30 p. m. last night in Room 4203
Angell Hall, on the question "Re-
solved, that the Federal government
should adopt the essential features of
the British system of radio broad-
casting." His negative team won the
decision. This is the same topic to be
debated next year by member schools
of the Michigan High School De-
James H. McBurney, manager of
the State debating league and mem-
ber of the speech department, acted
as judge and Henry H. Bloomer, of
Lincoln, Ill., served as chairman.
This debate, according to an an-
nouncement by Professor Densmore,
served as an exhibition contest for
the many teachers from various parts
of the country who are taking sum-
mer training in the teaching and
coaching of debate work.
Members of the winning negative
team' were: Warren A. Guthrie,
Grad., of Nebraska Wesleyan Uni-
versity, Lincoln, Neb.; Eva L. Hesling,
Grad., of the University; and Paul
L. Sultzbach, of Wittenberg College,
Those participating on the affirm-
ative team were: L. Wayne Smith,
Grad., of Iowa State Teachers Col-
lege; W. H. Miley, Grad., of Otterbein
College, Westerville, Ohio; and Law-
rence E. Vredevoogd, Grad., of Hope
College, Holland, Mich.
Federal Men To Meet
With Moley On Crime
WASHINGTON, Aug. 7.-( P)
Signaling the start of a new phase
of the government's anti-crime cam-
paign, high federal officials today
started a series of conferences at the
call of Raymond Moley to seek ways
of unified Federal and State action.
Meanwhile, Department of Justice
agents, who recently have aided in
solving four kidnaping cases, were
assigned to hunt down the abductor
of Charles F. Urschel, wealthy Okla-
homa City oil man.

As Social Unit
Finds Individual Freedom
And Economic Changes
Have Weakened Ties
The family today is an affectional
group, held together often only by
conventions, not the stern economic
necessity it has been in the past,
according to Prof. Albert C. Jacobs,
who spoke yesterday afternoon on
the Summer Session special lecture
"The two main underlying tenden-
cies which have changed the status
of the family as the unit of society
are the growth of free choice in a
career as opposed to hereditary and
caste principles, and the increasing
extent to which outside interests are
taking the place of the home," he
"The individual has gained at the
expense of the family," he continued.
"Land is no longer important to the
existence of many and is no longer
handed down from generation to
generation in one family, with the
result that traditional ties are weak-
ened, and women have gained a
measure of emancipation from fam-
ily bonds. Likewise, the factory has
replaced to home as the center of
activity-baking, canning, cleaning,
washing, and sewing are done out-
side. Hospitals, asylums, old age in-
surance, and compulsory schools
have removed old-time duties from
Family attendance at churches is
higher today, Professor Jacobs said,
but family prayer has dropped off
greatly and church marriages -have
done the same. "The church has lost
its power to preside over marriage
and prevent divorce, and the idea
of marriage as a civil contract rather
than a sacrament has become- ac-
Professor Jacobs attacked the im-
proper administration being given to
modern marriage laws in those states
which have them, and the antiquated
legal attitude toward divorce, which
makesperjury and law evasion
"Although divorces will increase, I
have no fear that the family' will
cease to be the unit of the social
order," he said. "All the traditional
notion of the family have persisted
after the reasons for them disap-
peared. But there is no doubt that
its position has been weakened."

As Pioneer In
An outstanding contribution has
been made by Michigan to second-
ary schools and educational stand-
ards in the United States because
of pioneer work in the field, it was
stated last night by Dean James B.
Edmonson of the School of Educa-
tion in an address before the Wom-
en's Education Club.
Provision for the office of State
superintendent of public instruction
and the creation of a permanent
State school fund are among the
early contributions, he said.
Also Michigan was the first state
to establish a normal school. The;
famous Kalamazoo -case established a,
judicial opinion in the development
of free schools, he added.
The University' was the first tax-
supported institution to open its
doors to women 'ton the same status
as men and is still the most cosmo-
politan of the tax-supported insti-
tutions, he explained.
Active interests at the University
in secondary schools developed in
1871through the accrediting system
under the late President James B
Angell. Under this system it was
recommended that graduates of ac-
credited schools should be admitted
without examination, Dean Edmon-
son pointed out.
Another pineer step described by
Dean Edmonson was the passing of
a resolution in 1894 by the Michigan
Schoolmaster's Club which led to the
establishment of the North Central
Association. He concluded with a de-
scription of the present status of the

Half an hour before the senate
gave the bill its unanimous approval,
military forces tramped through

bristled around the palace and every
other government building. T h e

through the streets.
Eh arlier in ts aeternoon the A. C.

that 'Machado had decided to resign.

around the great white capitol.

Many Carry Cuban Flags
In other parts of the city similar
scenes occurred. Many of the jubil-
'ant throng carried Cuban flags.
The city was grimly quiet tonight
while almost hopeless efforts to count
the dead and wounded went on. A
hasty check showed 15 dead and
more than 100 wounded. Many of
the latter were struck by bullets
which ricocheted from the pavement
and from the sides of buildings.
So busy were hospitals that there
were noneto answer telephones. Po-
lice earlier in the day gave orders
that no information of any sort con-
cerning wounded should be released.

was learned authoritively that the
executive will leave office tomorrows

as toe gravest situation in Cuba's
