NEW YORK, June 6.-(P)-A gov-

American business today that if it

political control over private industry

In uncompromising words, Donald
R. Richberg, long-time representa-

counsel of the Recovery Administra-

control plan fail it would not be a
failure of government but of the
present industrial system, either
proving, the system fundamentally
unsound or indicting its present man-

His warning message was con-

which business and labor both were
exhorted to come forward quickly.

Stricken With
Leg Infection
Says He Hopes To Return
To His Administrative
Duties On Friday
LANSING, July 6.-(/P)-Gov-
ernor Comstock became suddenly
ill Thursday and was taken to
his hotel. He was suffering from
a fever caused by a recurrence
of a leg ailment. At his office it
was stated he plans to be at his
desk Friday if improved.
LANSING, July 6. - (3) - Seized
with another attack of the lym-
phatic infection from which he has
been suffering, Governor Comstock r
was compelled to leave his office
early Thursday afternoon without

signing the old-age pension and
other bills on his desk.
The pension law was to be ap-
proved at a ceremony to be attended
by officials of the Fraternal Order of
Eagles. The governor said that he l
will act on the numerous measures
Friday if he is able to be at his office.3
The attack, which centers in the
governor's right leg, prevents him
from walking. He was carried to his
hotel by his secretaries, but his con-
dition was not regarded as serious.
For almost a month, Comstock has
been compelled at times to stretch
his leg horizontally on an extra chair
at his desk.
Governor Comstock's attack is the
fourth he has experienced in recent

First Program Of

Audience Of 3,OO
More than 3,000 people, including
students, faculty members, and
townspeople, turned out last night to
hear the University Summer Band
present the first of its series of week-
ly open-air concerts on the campus.

and military music. Among the selec-
tions played were Schubert's "Over-
ture to Rosamunde," Romberg'
'Maytime Selections," and "Fin-

Scenic Effects
Are Discussed
SBy Whittemore
'City Dweller Accustoms
Himself To 98 Per Cent
Of Ugliness'
"Scenery has always had a pro-
ound influence on civilized people,"
;aid Harlow O. Whittemore, profes-
'or of landscape design, in a talk
esterday afternoon on the special
ecture series. "It has always affected
heir moods, elevating or depressing
hem in proportion to the order and
>eauty of the view.
"Most of us think of scenery as
ural, but there is also urban scen-
ry-the scenery of railroad yards,
;quares, streets, of industrial moun-
;ains with canyons between and
ivers of traffic flowing in them," he
stated. "The average city dweller
ias always considered that the ugly
aspects of his town indicate its effi-
iency; he has accepted the railroad
card because he wants good trans-
)ortation, the electric wires because
Le wants light, and the hideous vis-
ial nightmare of billboards because
hey show the growth of commerce.
3e has been able to harden himself
to 98 per cent of the ugliness and
,end picture postcards of the sky-
scrapers to his friends."
Professor Whittemore explained
.he landscape designer's belief that
>eauty can and should be a part of
ill the visual objects in any place,
md listed the various criteria of
scenic composition: utility, fitness,
inity, harmony of parts, variety, and
ndividuality in the character of the
iesign. The lecture, which is the
.ast on the series for this week, was
illustrated with lantern slides of
views in presentday cities.
Administration Shelves
Plan For Disarmament
WASHINGTON, July 6.-()-The
'Administration today abandoned all
plans for informal arms reduction
negotiations until autumn, convinced
that nothing could be done in the
meantime to reconcile the disagree-
ments on this question.
This was disclosed by an announce-
ment that Ambassador Norman H.
Davis, chief delegate to the Geneva
Conference, would remain in the
United States until early September,

when the Assembly of the League
of Nations will meet.

Social Season In
Full Swing With
Re~eption Today

J. L. Brumrn
Talks To Men's
Education Club
"The Press as an Aid in Promoting
Education" was the topic of an ad-
dress given by Prof. John L. Brumm.
head of the journalism department,
at the last meeting of the Men's Edu-
cation Club.
School people are prone to criticize
the press, he said, because they feel
that it does not do its job in giving
Adequate publicity to school activi-
-ies and projects. In refutation of
this, he pointed out that newspapers
are primarily business enterprises
and publishers are obliged to give
the public only what it wants.
The trouble with school news, he
explained, is that it is ordinarily not
put up by educators in the best form
for popular consumption. As a rem-'
edy for this he suggested that school
people be trained in the task of writ-
ngschool news, as news, for the
press. Professor Brumm also sug-
rested that schools concern them-
selves more with the preparation of
pupils for intelligent reading of
newspapers, this proposal meeting
with much favorable comment among
3ducators present.

spite the fact that a few reservations
were still open. It was expected last
night that several additional students
would sign up this morning.
The tour, which will last until early
Sunday afternoon when the group
returns to Ann Arbor, will be under
the personal direction of Prof. Lau-
rence M. Gould, prominent geologist
and explorer and now chairman of
the geology department at Carleton
College and instructor for the sum-
mer in the geology department here.

Open House Also Planned
In addition to dancing which will
be held from 9 a. m. to 1 a. m. in the
ballroom, officials of the League an-
nounced that an open house will be
held until 10:30 p. m., during which
time the third and fourth floors will
be open for public inspection. Ar-
rangements have been made by the
League social committee, headed by
Miss Jean Seeley, who yesterday an-
nounced that cards, refreshments,
ping-pong, and billiards will be in-
cluded in events planned for the eve-
Last year more than 3,000 students
enrolled in the Summer Session at-
tended the reception, it was said by
Miss McCormick, social director of
women, and plans this year have
been laid with the expectation of a
capacity attendance. She added that
all students enrolled in the University
this summer are invited to attend.
One of the features of the evening
will be that the garden of the League
will be open to both men and women
students attending the reception.
Mattes Will Conduct Bridge Play
Bridge will be played in the dining
room under the direction of John
Mattes, regular bridge instructor of
the League's classes. Refreshments
are to be served in the lobby of the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, Miss

In order to prevent oyer-crowding
of the ballroom, it has been decided
that no one without a partner will be
allowed on the dance floor. Although
men and women students are en-
couraged to come to the reception
without partners, it is expected that
only couples will enter the ballroom.

ducing students to each other, host
and hostess committees have been
formed of both students and faculty

Cowden and Mrs. Cowden, Prof. Wil-
lard C. Olson and Mrs. Olson, and
Prof. Thomas J. Mitchell and Mrs.

More Than Half Of Prisoners
At Jackson In School-Keeler

More than half of the 5,000 in-
mates of Michigan State Prison, at
Jackson, are at present enrolled in
the prison school, it was said yester-
day by Dr. L. W. Keeler, assistant
professor of educational psychology,
in the fourth of the afternoon con-
ferences sponsored by the School. of
Education. "The Educational Pro-
gram of a State Prison," was the
general subject of Dr. Keeler's ad-
After tracing briefly the develop-
ment of the prison school as such,
with reference to administration and
opportunities offered, Dr. Keeler
said that "lately there has been a
steady decline in the various types
of industry carried on in the prisons,
resulting in an increase in the num-
ber of inmates compelled to spend
their enforced leisure confined with-
in their cells.
"In every way this condition is un-

riculum to include industrial and vo-
cational training, and the beginning
of improvement in the methods of
instruction. He explained that some
attention is being paid to the teach-
ing of subjects included in the sec-
ondary school level, but that the de-
velopment of this work is as'yet very
Dr. Keeler calls the teaching of il-
literate prisoners one of the im-
portant works on the elementary
school level, placing specific atten-
tion to the developments that have
taken place in this field at Jackson.
There the work of the school is in
charge of a superintendent, a super-
visor of instruction, and two direc-
tors of special departments, all of
whom Dr. Keeler explained as being
employees of the prison and men
well trained in their particular fields.

Menefee Says Various Exhibits
At World's Fair Are Educational

"The World's Fair at Chicago is
extremely well conducted, as well as
being most complete from an educa-
tional standpoint. There is probably
no other place where one can learn
so much about the world in general
in three or four days time," said
Prof. F. N. Menefee of the College
of Engineering, who has just recent-
ly returned from the Fair, in an in-
terview yesterday afternoon.
As an example of this fact, he
cited the Japanese silkworm exhibit,
where the entire process of making

ing operations, including the trans-
portation of minerals, blast and open
hearth furnaces, mills, and complete
models of diamond and coal mines;
dramatizations of the medical and
dental professions with explanatory
talking pictures and lectures; and
rubber-growing operations. Also fea-
tured here is a complete paper mill
and model with a demonstration of
how the article is made. Professor

ably no outstanding industries in the
