trial and domestic purposes, as presented by the
chemist, are of a novel enough nature to bear ton-
siderable thought even during these progressive
and surprising times. According to Mr. Potter:-
"Our grandchildren may live in houses into
which the construction of bricks scarcely enter.
The society hostess of the future will have her
drawing room paneled with sheets of laminated
materials of any color which she chooses. It will
a be possible, when a housewife desires to redec-
orate her home, simply to replace the panels with
those of another color."

spoken by Sparks, and their screen fate was
sealed.
Audiences seemed to like them as screen sweet-
hearts, wholly discounting the fact that Ruby is
happily married to Al Jolson and that Dick pe-
riodically is reported engaged to Mary Brian.
The Gaynor-Farrell combination continued suc-
cessfully, even after both Janet and Charlie had
married others. Seen together, and admired, three
times already are Sally Eilers and James Dunn,
although Sally is Mrs. Hoot Gibson.
Appearances Count
These things never interfere when the public
really takes a pair of screen romancers to its
heart. Most of the members of the other screen
teams in the past have been married-to other
people.
All that really matters is that they are people
who "seem" to be suited to each other-charming
young people who might be very much in love.
Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell answer these re-
quirements, so they're "a knockout for the mush
interest."

A Selfish Official
C'uses Bloodshed-..
^ T WENTY dead; twenty more dying.
So read the headlines of yester-
br 's papers in reference to the results of the
horrible massacre at Havana.
A slaughter by Cuban soldiers, prompted by the
raso ve of Gerardo Machado, President of Cuba,
that he would resort to war before relinquishing
4s high post, was the direct cause of the situa-
Whatever the facts concerned in the intricate
political maze which provide a background for the
rpent uprisings, those which led to the immediate
r96olution place President Machado in a very un-
pReasing light.
Press reports which preceded actual news of
tl uprising in front of the presidential palace by
twenty-four hours carried official statements to
the effect that only a resignation by President
Machado could prevent bloodshed. The American
ambassador to Cuba, Sumner Welles, viewing the
situation as.one of tragic gravity, after conferring
with leaders representing various factions, pro-
posed a solution which included the president's
resignation. The president's answer to this pro-
psal was a statement to the effect that he would
find out from Washington just how much au-
tority Welles possessed in regard to presenting
oposed solutions to Cuba's difficulties. This an-
swer was a direct affront and thrust at Welles
and American interference in Cuban affairs.
Possibly Machado should not be forced to re-
sign. Perhaps he merits retention of the office
wich he holds. But the fact remains that he
iight have made some sort of temporary agree-
zent with his opponents that would have pre-
vented the bloodshed which has already occurred.
Sven the leaders of the army which Machado con-
trols have made public statements in which they
insisted that Machado's resignation was the one
aqlution to, the difficulty. Leaders of all the fac-
tins concerned were agreed on that one common
point before the actual uprising took place. Yet
it eman remained steadfast in the face of all
Qpposition, protecting his position at the cost of
a score of lives.
The actual shooting occurred when many Cu-
1YnS, having heard erroneous reports to the effect
tist Machado had already resigned, jammed the
streets shouting approval. As the crowds swept
t &ward the presidential palace they were met by
machine gun and rifle fire. The cheers soon
turned into screams as the people fled toward the
American Embassy seeking safety.
Whatever the factors underlying the original
strike which precipitated the action, whatever the
politicaL'background making up the present Cuban
situation, nevertheless it appears that bloodshed
has occurred when an official was able to pre-
vent it. And for that he can hardly: be forgiven,
when all evidence points to personal selfishness
on. the part of a man who wouldn't give up his
,position which he will be unable to retain now,
anyway.

CHAMBER MUSIC RECITAL
The quality of the chamber music concert on
the whole was good, with only an occasional let-
down. It started well with the Allegro movement
from Dohnanyi's Quintet in C minor. The attack,
the phrasing, the spirit of it was well handled;
the unusual number of strings moving as a unit.
The piano work balanced the strings in tone and
consistency.
After a somewhat uncertain start, the Italian
Serenade of Hugo Wolf picked up, crystallized
into its cross-rhythms and melodies, the tonal
quality emerged. This is of a more conversational
type of ensemble work than the Dohnanyi, and
set off the solo violin to advantage. The perform-
ance was more than adequate.
The most professional performance occurred in
the Ravel Septet for harp, flute, clarinet, and
.string quartet. Its tempos were more plastic, its
essence brought out. The harp, an ever romantic
instrument in its tone, its appearance, was used
in all its graciousness, but without becoming gush-
ing or sentimental. The body of the flute and
clarinet tone came into clear contrast with the
flowing of the harp and the lightness of the
strings. It was built up into a climax rhythmic
and harmonic, such as the Bolero is, but with-
out the automatic routine. Miss Ruth Pfohl, Mr.
Nicholas Falcone and Mr. Earl Slocum assisted in
the parts added to the string quartet.
After the colorful Ravel, the Brahms Quintet
for piano and string seemed pale and perfunc-
tory, the piano having the predominating tune-
fulness and depth.
Saint-Saens revived the spirit of the evening
by its completely-understood humour and, musical
illustrativeness. The Aquarium, the Aviary, the
Swan were captivating in their charm, the others
made their appeal through the caricature of the
nature of the beast. The two pianos vied with
each other in expressing characteristics, the sec-
ond making a better lion than the first, the first
piano making a better kangaroo.
Professor Pick directed the larger groups, con-
tributing a decided factor of experience and tried
approach to the interpretation. -Sally Place.
Screen Reflections
SCREEN LIFE IN HOLLYWOOD
By HUBBARD KEAVY
HOLLYWOOD-This is the story of the un-
happy case of a cameraman who was too good
an audience. Gar Clarke is his name.
Clarke's emotions are easily aroused, and he is
unable to control them as others do. Scenes that
are only fairly sad make him cry.
Gar Clarke is an equally good laugher. A funny
situation will make him howl.
It wasn't so bad -in the silent days; laughter
or tears on the sidelines didn't interrupt the
actors. Actually, this one-man audience encour-
aged them, even flattered them.
Then came the talkies, spelling the doom of
many stars, upsetting the even flow of things in
movieland and, of course, costing Gar Clarke his
job. Directors didn't want a fellow who either was
laughing or crying all the time.
Jobless, having laughed and cried himself out
of the studios, ex-Camerman Clarke opened a
radio shop which prospered for awhile. Not lng
ago he filed a petition in bankruptcy.
He's Back
The other day I saw a strange sight: a man on
a movie set, who was not acting, wearing ear
muffs. Inquiry revealed he was a third assistant
cameraman.
Then I heard the story of Gar Clarke from a
sympathetic friend who had put him back to work.
Just before a scene that is likely to affect him
emotionally, he puts cotton in his ears and then
covers them with muffs.
I don't know what he does when the scene is
visually funny. I didn't see any blinders.
Safe The First Time
If George O'Brien ever breaks a leg or neck
doing a stunt for screen purposes he is confident
it will be on the second or fhird "take."
He says he is all set for the first time a thrill
scene is taken. He figures out the physical re-
quirements, how long a run it will be if it's some
stunt with a horse, or long a fall it will be if it's
a fight on a cliff edge.

"But if we have to do it over again I frankly
admit I can't attain the same edge of nervous en-
ergy," says George, "or the same balance of mind
and body that is so necessary, for nearly all these
feats are a matter of timing."
Mush Interest
In a recent picture, Ned Sparks, playing the
part of a theatrical producer, is made to say to
Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell:
"You ,kids would be a knockout for the mush
interest."
Truer words were never spoken on or off the
screen.
Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell as a team are a
knockout for the mush interest. Their cinematic
love affairs have thrilled thousands.

A Washington
BYSTANDER
By KIR(E SIMPSON
WASHINGTON-The. most definite develop-
ment having to do with the three-way or four-
way struggle going. on already beneath the sur-
face for the Republican presidential nomination
in 1936 is the report from New York that Repre-
sentative James Wadsworth will see re-election
to the House, not the Senate, next year. In ex-
planation it was stated by Wadsworth's friends
that he was "saving himself for 1936."
Senator Royal S. Copeland of New York, Demo-
crat, is up for re-election next year. At least,
his present term expires and if his activities are
any guide to his hopes and plans, he confidently
expects to be renominated.
Since the Roosevelt administration came in,
Copeland has been an important figure in the
making of Federal appointments in up-state New
York.
The doctor and Postmaster General "Big Jim"
Farley, national and New York state Democratic
chairman as well as administration patronage dis-
penser-in-chief, seem to be getting along very
amicaby by all accounts.
Defeat Would Hurt
In view of that fact, Wadsworth might have
viewed with suspicion urgent advice that he seek
another Senatorial nomination to run against
Copeland. The doctor has proved himself repeat-
edly a formidable vote getter.
With at least two other New York Republican
1936 presidential nomination lightning rods in
sight, those of former Secretary Ogden Mills of
the treasury and House Minority Leader Bert
Snell, nothing could be happier from the view-
point of Wadsworth's potential rivals than that
he should get licked again for the Senate. That
would detract greatly from his 1936 presidential
availability.
The Mills and Snell booms are as yet strictly
under cover. It would be hard to prove that Mr.
Mills is working in his own interest, not that of a
renomination for Herbert Hoover. Yet Washing-
ton political onlookers believe Mills to be for Mills.
Farley For Governor?
Incidentally, the Farley-Copeland situation has
produced speculation among some New York Dem-
ocrats as to what it might foreshadow as to "Big
Jim's" own political ambitions.
Suspecting that he may be thinking in terms
of Farley-for-Governor-in-1936, these New York-
ers said that the Farley-Copeland relationship
gave "Big Jim" an opportunity to keep his organi-
zation on edge, since that Senatorship is apt to
be the chief bone of contention, assuming that
Governor Lehman seeks. another term. And Far-
ley, in his early forties, could well wait until 1936
to seek realization of gubernatorial hopes, if such
he has.
Editorial Comment
GERMANY REMEMBERS YOUTH
Whatever might be said of the Germans they
are still one of the most progressive peoples in
the world. Oppressed and tramupled, they have
managed to lead the world in the adoption of .so-
cial legislation to which other nations are just
beginning to awaken.
With unemployment insurance, old age pen-
sions, maternity and sick benefits long since uni-
versally accepted as parts of the social scheme,
they have set out on a program of national phys-
ical education that makes the efforts of other
countries insignificant in contrast.
Years ago Germany began the systematic build-
ing of playgrounds in every city to provide the
inestimable advantages of supervised play to every
German child. Only recently all activities in the
nation pertaining to physical education have been
centralized under the direction of a Reichscom-
missioner. The notion of sport for the sake of
competition only has been discarded and a defi-
nite program is being worked out for the efficient
physical development of young Germany.
The importance of the movement is demon-

strated by the fact that sport, according to de-
crees of the national government will be raised to
a major position in the educational curriculum.
The central object of the whole program, ac-
cording to official announcements, will be to de-
velop the powers of moral and physical defense.
This, it must be admitted, is a worthy cause.
There are nany things wrong with Germany
today, as there are many things wrong with every
other nation. But America might well emulate the
German recognition of youth.
There is a certain amount of irony in the situa-
tion, too, that cannot be overlooked. Most of the
money which has gone in the last few years for
the construction of playgrounds and the develop-
mast: f r' prmn~vmaf'.rith rompfrm Amarc~ipav

Vines Is Under
Investigation In
'Tennis Dispute
NEW YORK, Aug. 8.-(A)-The
amateur status of Ellsworth Vines,
national tennis champion, is under
investigation as a result of wide-
spread published reports linking his
name withprofessional offers, Louis
J. Carruthers, chairman of the ama-
teur rule committee of the United
States Lawn Tennis association, told
The Associated .Press today.
Carruthers made it plain that no
action had yet been taken by his
committee and that none would be
taken until he ascertained "all the
facts" in connection with-the much-
discussed intention of Vines to for-
sake amateur ranks after the close
of the 1933 season.
He explained the situation as fol-
lows:
"We have the situation with re-
spect to Vnies under very serious
consideration. I have read all the
newspaper comment about profes-
sional proposals and so-called offers.
I also have obtained other infor-'
mation on the subject and the aa-
teur rule committee will make a
thorough investigation.
"So far as I,know, Vines is the
only American player whose name
has been associated with these stories
and offers. Naturally we are not con-
cerned with what Henri Cochet or
any other foreign players do. Until
we have all the facts and a clear
picture of just what the situation
is, I cannot venture any statement
as to what action, if any, may be
justified."

BERLIN, Aug. 8.--P)-Germany
has told France and Britain that
.their interest in the German-Aus-
trian impasse is not welcome.
French and British ambassadors
handed the German foreign office
identical notes saying German prop-
aganda activities in Austrian politics
violated the spirit of the four-power
peace treaty, and were advised that
meddling in the situation was "in-
admissable."
The Berlin government, the en-
voys were told, fails to see any rea-
son for applying provisions of the
pact the three nations and Italy re-
cently signed in Rome and why they
should interfere in the present situ-
ation.
An official communique did not
mention the Italian stand, but mere-
ly said the Italian ambassador was
not on the Wilhelmstrasse and point-
ed out that Germany had not violat-
ed provisions of the accord.
"Germany considers the incident
closed," the statement asserted.
The representatives arose from the.
circulation of pamphlets by Nazi
aviators attacking the Austrian gov-
ernment under Chancellor Elbert
Dollfuss and broadcast speeches in
Germany of a like character.' These
moves, the British and French gov-
ernments hold, are not compatible
with Germany's obligations under
the Versailles treaty, in which Ger-
many agreed to respect Austria's in-
dependence, nor with the four-power
agreement for European peace.
Professor L. A. Hopkins will speak
on, "Keeping Track of the Asteroids."
All interested are invited.-
Mr. K. Matarajan, Editor of the
Indian Social Reformer and Editor
of the Bombay Daily Mail, will speak
at 3:30 p. m. today in the Natural
Science Auditorium. Note change of
