Trust Has Two
New Members
NEW YORK, July 12.-(/P)-Two
new names have been added to Pres-
ident Roosevelt's "brain trust" under
auspices which leads Wall Street to
believe the foundation is being laid
for a "managed currency."
Professor George F. Warren of Cor-
nell University and James Harvey
Rogers of Yale have been named
to survey the fiscal situation. Both
are regarded as outstanding advo-
cates of managed money.
President Roosevelt in his recent
message to the World Economic
Conference indicate dhe considered
a "sound and adequate" currency to
mean a currency whose buying and
debt-paying power remains constant
from one generation to another.
The financial community feels
certain that the new "brain trust"
niembers will have something to do
with pointing the way to the gov-
ernment's objective.
Nebraska-born, Dr. Warren is a
professor of agricultural economics
and farm management. His recent
t tional piominence, however, is at-
tributed to his studies of price move-
mnits and criticism, of the gold
standard as it has been used.
He contends that the dollar should
have a constant buying power, not
for one commodity, as such, but for
all commodities at wholesale prices.
In his writings Dr. Warren explains
that this could be accomplished if
central banks were permitted to
change their buying and selling
prices of gold as often as deemed
necessary.
Dr. Rogers is a student of gold
problems and related questions. He
has called the gold standard one
of "the most illuminating anomalies
of our so-called advanced civiliza-
tion."

contains is being presented, he says,
and being presented as completely as
limitations of staging, make-up, and
amateur acting will permit.
Director Windt is pretty tired these
days. In the past week nearly 60 ac-
tors have been coached in parts,
many of them speaking parts ad
some of them songs, costumes have
been provided for the cast, sets have
been constructed for 17 scenes-"you
co uld use 34, but we had to compro-
mise on 17," he says-, the Aiken
script has been rewritten, and music
has been arranged.
So whether the Uncle Tom who
last night cowered before Simon Le-
gree and said, "My black body may
belong to you, but my soul-" is
really something new or is just the
same old hokum in new clothes, Di-
rector Windt has a right to be con-
fident-or at least to be tired.

Free Dancing
Casses Held
For Students
By JEAN HALL
(Instructor in Physical Education
for Women)
In a recent article in a Detroit
newspaper, a well-known movie di-
rector was quoted as saying that
"dancing gives poise, the ability to
move hand and feet gracefully, and
to walk with rhythmic smoothness."
This summer, the women's physi-
cal education department has offered
to those enrolled the opportunity to
learn tap dancing, free of any addi-
tional charge. Classes are being held
at 4 and 5 o'clock Mondays, Wednes-
days, and 'Thursdays in the basement
of Barbour Gymnasium. A class,
open to both men and women stu-
dents, is to be hield at 7:15 Tuesday
and Thursday evenings in the lounge
of the Women's Athletic Building.
Why not plan to attend. at last one
of these?
Tap dancing has a decided place,
in the field of physical education.
If one needs to be convinced, a
strong argument would be that this
type of activity brings joy to the
participant, and pleasure is funda-
mental in any type of learning..
Interest in tap dancing has in-
creased rapidly during the last few
years. This may be due to several
factors; rhythms, which are the basis
of tap dancing, the pleasure of work-
ing with others, and the opportunity
to measure one's self-achievement.'
From physiological and recrea-
tional standpoints, tap dancing is
most valuable. It helps to develop
the body symmetrically through bal-
ance, muscle co-ordination, and a
sense of rhythm. No better leisure
time activity can be found, as tap
dancing demands the minimum
amount of necessary equipment and
space.

Brown Speaks
To Socialists
On Antrchism
At the regular Wednesday evening
discussion of :the Michigan Scialist
Club, Tom Brown, Grad., spoke on
the history of anarchism. He pointed
out that the philosophy of anarch-
ism frst appeared in written forrn
in Chinese literature of 400 B. C.
However, it was Michel Bakunin and
Peter Kropotkin in the 19th centty,
aristocratic Russians who learned
much about prison as a result of
their beliefs, who make anarchism
modern.
Its ideal, as argued by Bakunin,
is liberty, no coipulsin to work
and distribution of all goods for the
asking, it being confidently expected
that man's desires would cause him
to produce goods in sufficient
amounts of all kinds. Anarchism
has been closely associated with sy-
dicalism, but should not be confused
with terrorism,l he said.'
Charles Or, Grad., continued with
syndicalist ideas and tactics in
Spain and Latin-America, whei he
said they had tken the stiongest
hold. "Around the industrial Bare-
lona disti-ict, the anarcho-syndica-
ists quite control the dovernn cnt.
and are continually rehearsing for
the great general strike, which is to
be their seventh march around Jer-
icho. The present government of
Spain rests on the strong Socialist
trade unions around Madrid, but it
is threatened more by the syndical-
ists and communists of the left than
by the monarchists and Catholics,"
he said.
Orr told of his acquaintance with
Mexican anarchists, who sincerely
predict that there will be no govern
ment in Spain after two years. Such
unrealistic enthusiasm, he thought
could not be accepted by a Marxian.
He further traced the post-war seiz-
ure of Italian industry by the syn-
dicats, the fascist reaction and the
positive influence of syndicalism on
the fascist structure of government.
Stewart Way discussed the Indus-
trial Workers of the World as a kind,
of Marxian and syndicalist move-
ment in America which differs from
socialism and communism in that it
aims to overthrow capitalism by di-
rect economic power, which must
precede political power. By the mis-
represented term "direction action,"
the I. W. W. means a strike on or
off the job. A strike on the job is
sabotage, defined by Veblen as "a
conscious withdrawal of efficiency."
The I. W. W . frowns on violence,
especially armed .revolution, which it
holds impratical. It 'relies on the
general strike to take over the fac-
tories for the workers, aid insists
on industrial rather than craft
unions.
Way expressed the belief that the
I. W. W. pins too 'much faith n the
general strike and that its plans for
the classless society were extremely
vague, but he felt that Socialists
could learn much from the niove-
inent.
Four Succumb,
Crops Hurt In
Western Heat
KANSAS CITY, July 12.-(/P)-A
gasping, sun-scorched southwest to-
day hoped for clouds, forecast by
weather observers, to alleviate some-
what the heat that caused four
deaths Tuesday.
Two died in Dallas, Tex., where

the mercury reached 104, and two
succumbed in Oklahoma, one in the
capital city and one near Perry.
Oklahoma City's 106 equalled the
record set there in July, 1914.
But Vernon, Tex., topped all high
temperature readings with 115, the
city's twenty-first consecutiveday of
100-degree weather. It was.a new
high for the season, as was the 107
recorded at Sherman, Tex.
Reported temperatures in Kansas
and Missouri did not range as high
but the population sweltered. Kansas
city's maximum was 92. Wichita re-
ported 98.
Recent rains in parts of Missouri
and Iansas came in time to save'
crops but two Federal crop statisti-
cians in Oklahoma City predicted
failure of the corn crop in the state,
unless rain falls quickly. Robert P.
Chandler, Oklahoma state fish and
game warden, said thousands of fish
were dying "because the water is too
hot!"

MADISON, Wis., July 12.- (Big
Ten)--The fallacy of the popular be-
lief that "you can't teach .an old dog
new tricks"has at last been clearly
demonstrated.
An experiment in the adult learn-
ing of French conducted in a Wis-
consin vocational school at Madison
has proved conclusively that adults
with an educational background
ranging anywhere from an elemen-
tary school training to a college de-
gree and with widely different occu-
pational pursuits can surpass the
achievement of young high school
or university students at the same
levels of instruction.
The experiment was conducted re-
cently by F. D. Cheydleur, professor
of French at the University of Wis-
cousin. Professor Cheydleur carried
on the experiment in his spare time
with night school classes in French
over a period of three years.
The immediate purpose of the ex-
periment, according to Prof. Cheyd-
leur, was to learn whether adults
could learn a foreign language more
or less thoroughly than school chil-
dren or even university students, or
in other words to ascertain what
could be accomplished by students
beyond the average school or 'college
age when subjected to the same
amount of instruction, the same

methods, the same teacher, and the
same examinations for measuring
the results.
"The experiment ought to demon-
strate the fallacy of the popular be-
lief that you cannot teach an old
dog new tricks, for insofar as foreign
language learning is concerned, it
wo-uld seem quite clear that the older
person in vocational school of nor-
mal intelligence and some leisure
through better motivation, applica-
tion, and concentration may outstrip
his younger brother in college with
less clear-cut aims, industry, and
singleness of purpose," Professor
Cheydleur said.
What has been demonstrated in
regard to the superiority of achieve-
ment of adults in the learning of
French compared with university
students is equally true of their at-
tainiment compared with high schoolI
students in the sane subject,.at the
same levels of instruction, he main-
tained.
It is reasonable to expect, he said,
that similar experiments in other
foreign languages under approxi-
mately the same conditions, namely,
vocational school adults versus col-
lege or high school students would
bring comparable results and that
the plan could be extended to other
standard subjects such as mathe-
matics, science, history, and English.
