Subjected To Physical
Torture By Chancellor
Tells Of Formation
Of Socialist Group
Blames Poor Constitution
For Failure Of Post-War
German Government
Jews in Germany have not been
subjected to any physical cruelties
by the Hitler government, according
to E. Stern Rubarth, noted German
editor, who spoke yesterday in Nat-
ural Science Auditorium on "Mis-
takes About Germany."
"If there has been any cruelty to-
ward these pople," he said, "it was
not ordered by the government but
was the result of over-enthusiastic
crowd action."
Admitting that he could not be
too outspoken because of the fear of
dismissal from his official editorial
post and a possible jail sentence,
Dr. Rubarth outlined in detail the
general policy and the reasons for
the birth of Hitler's National So-
cialist party.
"In the first place," he said, "the
government of Germany following
the war was not successful because
it was based on a constitution drawn
up from ideals and theory which did
not take human nature into account.
Furthermore the people could not
vote' for the men they liked but were
forced to ote for one of several men
nm inated by the party."
"The National Socialist party," he
explained, "was formed and is com-
posed of those who believe that they
have a right to something that they
iuld not get under former condi-
tat'thiitn'r Grtnarly -since
the war there has been a vast class
of discontented people. These criti-
cized but had no constructive sug-
gestions to offer. Their disapproval
of the old regime voicd itself for the
most part in the waving of banners,
loud oratory, and semi-military pa-

Federal Pension Rolls
To Be Cut Alnost Half
WASHINGTON , June 30.-()-
The pension rolls will be lightened by
almost one-half tomorrow by the
Roosevelt economy program.
The beginning of the new fiscal
year brought veterans' expenditures
down from 1933 appropriations that
aggregated $927,949,000 to estimates
totaling $581,988,000 for the new
year, a reduction of $345,961,000.
However, not all this amount came
out of benefits 'previously paid for-
mer soldiers. Fifty million dollars
of the reduction was obtained by a
-decrease in the 1933 appropriation
of $100,000,000 for the fund that is
being set aside yearly to pay the
bonus in 1945. The appropriation for
the fiscal year, 1934, was halved.
Benefit payments to between 400,-
000 and 500,000 men who served in
the World and Spanish-American

wars will stop at midnight. Esti-
mates of these savings aggregated
$185,000,000. Compensation to thou-
sands of other former service men
will be less than last year.

Aesop, It Seems, Was

BALTIMORE, June 30.-(AP)-The
newspaper today were hailing as a
contribution to scientific research the
corroboration given Aesop at Johns
Hopkins Hospital yesterday.
Following the annual turtle race
on the hospital grounds, the winner,
Panic II, was pitted against a hare,

True to the fable, the turtle plug-

Dr Bell's Ten
Day Athletics
Session Closes
Instruction In Coaching
And Physical Training
Offered For Women
After a successful ten-day series
of classes which eclipsed in popular-
ity the similar events of last summer,
the University Sports Session, spon-
sored by the Summer Session and
held'unler'the iretion of Dr.Mar-
garet Bell, closed yesterday.
The classes in physical education
and coaching, offered only to wo-
men, included golf, tennis, swimming,
diving, badminton, basketball offici-
ating, field hockey, and other wo-
men's sports.
The course was first started in the
Summer Session of last year, with
the purpose of offering to women
coaches the rudiments of instruction
which would be beneficial in the
type of work involved.
Though fewer attended this year's
classes, because of the impossibility
of accepting script from Detroit and
Chicago teachers, the series was
nevertheless declared an outstanding
success, both by those participating
and by the instructors.
The courses included an hour lec-
ture each day in addition to field
work in the various sports. Picnics
were held in the afternoon in order
that those interested might meet for
a discussion of the problems common
to physical education work.
Assisting Dr. Bell were members of
the University coaching staff as well
as instructors recruited from other
institutions. R. . Courtright, of the
University staff, was assisted by Mrs.
Stewart Hanley, of Detroit, in golf
instruction; the Varsity tennis coach,
John Johnstone, directed the ac-
tivities in his field; and swimming
courses were led by Mrs. Lillian W.
Reilly and Mrs. Katherine Curtis,
of the Illinois Athletic Club. The
other sports included in the pro-
gram were offered by members of the
University Physical Education fac-
ulty, including Miss Laurie Camp-

Says Banks, Not Nations,

Of MoneyStability
June 30.--(A)-President Roosevelt is
standing pat against immediate at-
tempts by the World Economic Con-
ference to stabilize currency until he
is sure that the true levels of money
of the various nations have been
Unconcerned about the reported
crisis in the London parley, Mr.
Roosevelt is enjoying his vacation
and waiting for the conference to
get down to business on other things.
An authoritative analysis of the
American viewpoint on the ruckus
over currency stabilization at Lon-
don revealed here today that Mr.
Roosevelt doesn't think it concerns
the internal economic situation and
believes that until governments
which are running far behind their
budgets fix up their own currencies
the question can stew.
The conclusion drawn from this is
that the few remaining gold stand-
ard nations, headed by France, are
going to have to go off the standard,
put their currency to sea with the
United States and Great Britain and
let the levels be found.
However, Mr. Roosevelt is issuing
no ultimatums. In fact, he said to-
day, he had not been in touch with
the struggling economic parley by
direct appeal for three days.
As Mr. Roosevelt sees it, the ques-
tion of temporary stabilization of
"u'trdicy"to prevent wicespread fluc-
tuations is a problem of banks and
not of governments. So involved are
the factors that he thinks it totally
impossible for a conference to settle
the issue within 48 hours or even a
Relaxing after his 12-day sail at
sea at his boyhood summer home
here today, Mr. Roosevelt slept late
and then joined a beach party given
by Mrs. Roosevelt to the newspaper
men and Naval officers.
Indulging in hot dogs warmed by
Mrs. Roosevelt over a fire on the
beach and some potato salad, the
President talked with the newspaper
He appeared surprised at reports
from London of a new crisis on cur-
rency stabilization. Very obviously
he is centering primary attention on
domestic recovery. He wants success
at London, but he is going to stand
by his position.
Gazing at the cloudy sky, Mr.
Roosevelt said he would start back
tomorrow in accordance with his or-
iginal schedule, "God permitting."
Deficiency Tax Clains
Against Dodges Affirmed
CINCINNATI, June 30.-(P)-Defi-
ciency income tax assessments of
more than $7,700,000 against the trus-
tees of the estates of the late Horace
E. and John F. Dodge, Detroit auto-
mobile manufacturers, were affirmed

by the United States Court of Ap-
peals today.
The assessments were made for the
year 1925 by the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue against The Secur-
ity Trust Co., now The Detroit Trust
Co., of Detroit, and Anna Dodge Dill-
man, trustees of the Horace E. Dodge
estate, and The Detroit Trust Co. and
Matilda R. Wilson, trustees of the
John F. Dodge estate.

LANSING, June 30. - (AP) -The
Democratic broom started sweeping

Dr. Paul F. Voelker, of Battle
Creek, who will be sworn in as Su-
perintendent of Public Instruction
Saturday announced his staff of as-
sistants. Republicans of many years

United States Now Faces Own
Arguments For Gold Standard

Proposed Plan Provides
For Substantial Boost In
Workers' Wages
Sachs Advocates
Forty-Hour Week
Industry Shows 'Patriotic
Spirit' In Leading Way
To Industrial Recovery
WASHINGTON, June 30.-(/)-In-
dications came tonight that the
trade agreement devised by the cot-
ton textile industry, with its newly-
heightened wage scale would be
given quick approval by Hugh S.
Johnson, the national recovery ad-
After an all-night session, the
spokesman of the manufacturers
came forward late today with a plan
to boost its proposed minimum wage
to $12 in the south and $13 in the
north. Originally the figures were
$10 and $11.
Johnson quickly congratulated the
industry upon the "patriotic spirit"
he said it had shown in leading the
way under the industrial recovery act
and inferentially gave his indors-
ment to the wage and hour figures.
President Roosevelt is the final au-
thority upon the codes and Johnson
said the chief executive intended giv-
ing more than perfunctory examina-
tion to their agreement.
Asking corroboration by the re-
covery administration chief econom-
ist, Doctor Alexander Sachs, John-
son said theminimum wages pro-
posed would return the purchasing
power of the workers to the pre-
depression level, and'allow for an in-
crease in the cost of living.
Although spokesmen for organized
laber- had alsoopposed the 40-hour
maximum work week, contending it
should be much lower, Sachs said
any scaling down of this figure would
be impractical.
He calculated that the spread of
employment under a 40-hour week
would give employment for 100,000
additional persons and said shorten-
ed hours would mean a shortage
of trained textile workers which
would drive small mills from the field
of operation.

Baseball Bat Proves To
Be Undoing Of Burglar
EVANSTON, Ill., June 30.-(P)-
Virginia Michaud, twenty-year-old
Northwestern U n i v e r s i t y co-ed,
knows what to do when burglars call.
One started climbing through a.
window of her bedroom today.
Clad only in pajamas, Virginia
leaped from bed, grabbed her bro-
'ther's baseball bat and galloped out
the back door. She descended on the
prowler, still busy at a catch on the
window. He saw her waving bat
and ran. So did Virginia.
For two blocks she chased him,
through puddles of rainwater and
across lawns. She might have 'caught
him, too, if cinders and pebbles
hadn't made her bare feet sore.
Regarded as one of the univer-
sity's most beautiful co-eds, Miss
Michaud is a friend of Virginia
Dawes, daughter of former Vice
President Charles G. Dawes.
"I'm studying archery," she said
today. "If I only had had an arrow

The tables of the World Economic
Conference have been turned.
The United States, operating on an
unimpaired gold standard at the time
that preliminary meetings for the
'onference were conducted and in-
sistent that England be admitted
only on a basis of stabilization, now
finds itself the object of the identical
arguments at that time used against
Nevertheless, although internation-
al pressure brought to bear upon
America by the gold nations, France,
Holland, Belgium, and Switzerland,
will be great, the threat of domestic
difficulties is greater, and there is
little likelihood that the United
States will make any drastic attempt
to check the fall of the dollar until
conditions within the country war-
rant it, in the opinion of Prof.
Charles F. Remer of the economics

cline in world trade since the de-
pression, a condition which resulted
in a staggering total of unpaid debts
between countries and in the erec-
tion of further trade barriers to pro-
tect the nations from inflation
These new tariff walls, Professor
Remer indicated, led to a further de-
crease in international trade and a
continuation of the vicious circle.
The entire cycle, he said, dates back
to the beginning of the World War,
when the nations were first forced
bff the gold standard and currency
troubles of all kinds arose.
In illustration of the trade plight
which nations of the world now
share, Professor Remer quoted com-
parative figures for 1929 and 1932.
Prices in 1932 were 53 per cent of
the 1929 level, the quantity of in-
ternational trade had dropped to 73
per cent, and the value of goods ex-
ported and imported stood at 39 per
