Voelker's Aim To
Improve Industrial
And Rural Schools

"A steady source of income for
schools to.be arranged through some
new form of taxation is advisable. We
must provide for a living wage for
teachers, a reasonable security of
their attainment, and a steady source
of income for the schools. Here are
a few facts:
Only about one-tenth of the schools
of Michigan will run full-time next
year unless some new form of special
aid is provided- 15 percent will run
from two to three months, 25 per-
cent will run four months, 25 per
cent will run five months, 15 per cent
will run from six to eight months,
and 10 percent will run full-time.
"The problem is stated in this
way- The property tax will bring
between $20,000,000 and $30,000,000
next year. The primary fund will
bring us about $18,000,000. The chain
store tax will probably bring an ad-
ditoinal $2,000,000. This will mean
we shall have between $40,000,000
and $50,000,000 to run the schools in-
stead of $86,000,000 as we had last
year. The schools will not run ade-
quately unless we provide $15,000,000
more than has now been provided.",
Youngsters in Teens
Industry does not want youngsters
-"the industrial codes filed at Wash-
ington show that,"- Dr. Voelker said
regarding his second point, "Most
Michigan employers refuse to employ
anyone under 18 or 21 years of age.
The legislative labor laws and the
mechanization of industry have made
mature workers necessary and an
over-su-pply of adult workers.
"The solution of this ;problem will
be to give more attention to the fit-
ting of young people to specific jobs
for them. Michigan will need to ex-
tend its industrial education work-
trade schools, part-time schools, ap-
prenticeship schools, continuation
schools, technological schools, and
agricultural schools,"' he explained.
In regard to what to do with in-
creasing leisure, Dr. Voelker said,
"the time is coming when no one will
be employed who is under 20. The
time will soon come when no one

Jones Speaks
On .Future O
U.S. Railroads
The entrance into the field of
transportation of a number of dan-
gerous competitors plus the combina-
tion of certain other circumstances;
has done much to reduce materially
the traffic on railroads today, de-
clared Prof. Eliot V. Jones of Leland
Stanford University in the week's;
first lecture, "The Outlook for the
Railroads," in the Summer Session
special series yesterday afternoon.'
The airplane, the motor truck, the
pipe line, and the boat, only recently
developed as methods of transporta-
tion of traffic, have come near to
supplanting the railroad as the most
important means of transportation,
he said.
The subsidization of the airplane'
Professor Jones said, places it in a
position where its rapid rise to rival
the train mnust be viewed with alarm.
The rapid development of the mo-
tor truck anid the pipe line has oc-
curredualmost entirely within the
past two years. The former is a di-
version of carloads traffic. However,
"the chances of its completely su-
perceding the railroad are nil be-
cause of the necessity of decided im-
provement in roads and bridges."'
It holds a decided advantage, he said,
in that it receives merchandise at the
manufacturer's door and delivers at
the door of the purchaser or mer-
chant. The pipe line serves as a
means for the transportation of na-
tural gas, fruit petroleum, and gaso-
line. Professor Jones said that since
natural gas has a greater heating
value than coal, and is therefore be-
ginning to supplant it, the railroad
is losing the traffic of transporting
fuel to the pipe line.
''The development of the water line
for carrying freight has been mostly
during the last decade. It is espe-
cially valuable for Great Lakes traf-
fic,'' he said.
Profesor Jones said that in order

CHICAGO, July 24.-(;P)-A des-
perate bank robber fought policemen
with a pistol in a criminal court room
today, killing Policeman John Se-
vick before he was wounded prob-
ably fatally himself.l
As bullets thudded against the
door of the court room and audiencel
and attaches ducked in panic from
the line of fire, Bailiff Jack Kav-
anagh snatched the fallen police-t
man's revolver and ran after the'
fugitive. He shot the gunman, John
Scheck, 21 years old, twice in the
back, but Scheck ran on down the1
court house stairs.
On a floor below a clerk accosted
The gunman swheeled, leveled his
pistol and pulled the trigger. It
clicked harmlessly. He slumped to
the floor; the bailiff's shots had
taken effect. Physicians said heJ
probably would die.
Carl Grundhoefer, co-defendant
with Scheck on charges of bank rob-
bery and murder, had sprinted from
the bullpen with Scheck, but was un-
armed. He gave up, protesting that
his companion had forced him to
NEW YORK, July 24.-(R)-The
stock market got out of bed today,
took a long deep breath and signaled
its apparent convalescence with a
spurting advance of $2 to $10 or more
per share.
All categories of equities joined in
the recovery, although the alcohols
and metals were easily the leaders
throughout. Grains, in restricted
trading at Chicago, were fairly firm
and wheat jumped 2 to 3 cents.a
bushel at Winnipeg.
Law - Literary Party
To Be held Thursday
The annual Summer Session tea
for law and literary school fac-
ulty and students, this year in
the form of a lawn party, will
be held from 4 to 6 p. m. in front
of the League building, it was an-
nounced yesterday.

Hugo Grotius, a pioneer in the field
of international law, was described as
an individual who went the ways of
peace through conciliation, by Prof.
Jesse S. Reeves of the political sci-
ence department in the second public
lecture ,on the program of the Inter-
national Law Conference, held last
night in Natural Science Auditorium.
Grotius first made his reputation
as an internationalist when, in his
early twenties, he wrote a brief of a
case involving the rights of the sea
which involved the Dutch East India
Co. and Portugal, Professor Reeves
said. The work appeared under the
title "Law of Capture" and was later
edited and reprinted as "Mare Lib-
rum" or "Freedom of the Sea."
Professor Reeves described the ca-
reer of the famous jurist which be-
gan in Holland in 1583, swung to
Paris, and was concluded in jail in
the country of his birth.
Grotius, he said, besides being a
scholar, was connected with the
states-rights, liberal religion, pro-
French party in Holland. With the
ascension of William of Orange, the
nationalist, state control religion,
pro-England came into power and
Grotius was thrown into jail with a
life sentence to face.
"While in jail, he read many books
and finally managed to escape in one
of the large boxes in which his books
were delivered," according to Pro-
fessor Reeves.
He fled to France where he con-
tinued his studies, wrote, and was,
finally named French ambassador
from Sweden by Queen Christina, the
speaker said.
He was shipwrecked on a planned
return trip to Holland, Professor
Reeves said, taken from the boat,
and put in jail where he died in 1645.
"Grotius was not courageous; but
he was the prince of the humanists.
He was a great scholar. He drew his
mode of living from the old Greek
and Latin masters," he concluded.

Charles F. Urschel, wealthy oil e
operator, was abducted from a bridge r
game at his Oklahoma City home t:
Saturday night by gunmen. No trace o
had been found of him today, and his M
family awaited word from the abduc- s
tors, ready to talk ransom.
In the meantime, with two promi-
nent victims still held for ransom,
the Federal governnent Monday g
made its first charges-with a Chi- '
cago gang chief as the leading de- w
fendant in the recent outbreak of n
kidnapings. t
Under the surveilance of half a b
hundred armed police, Roger Touhy
and three henchmen were taken to t
Milwaukee, Wis., where they were i]
named in federal warrants as the a
kidnapers of William Hamm, Jr., mil- i
lionaire St. Paul (Minn.) brewer, for p
$100,000 ransom.
"I am confident we shall be able l
to obtain convictions in the Hammrni
case," said Melvin H.sPurvis, chief ofi

Hamm was kidnaped from near his p
brewery June 15. Federal authorities t

WASHINGTON, July 24.-(A)-
president Roosevelt tonight called
pon all employers in the nation to
)ut into immediate effect the volun-
;ary code to shorten working hours
nd elevate wage levels.
Summoning the country to a quick
ttack upon the depression, Mr.
loosevelt in a talk to the people an-
iounced his purpose to keep posted
n the post offices of every town a
"ole of honor "of all those who join
ith me."
"I ask," he said, "that even be-
ore the date set in thee agreement
vhich we have sent out, the employ-
rs of the country who have not al-
eady done so-the big fellow and
he little fellows-shall at once write
r telegraph to me personally at the
White House, expressing their inten-
ion of going through with the plant.
Cites Co-Operation
Praising the co-operation so far
iven to the attempt for American
ndustry to spread work and increase
ages, the President said he recog-
ized that a few men might try to
hwart "this great common purpose
y seeking selfish advantages.
He noted there are adequate penal-
ies in law to meet this but he urged
nstead a voluntary co-operation and
nnounced this would be the only
nstrument "in this great summer
ffensive against unemployment."
"But we shall use them to the
imit," he stated, "to protect the will-
ng from the laggard and make the
)lan succeed."
The President said the American
eople "will pull themselves out of
his depression if they want to."
Mobilize Opinion
He expressed his belief 'that the
people 'would mobiize their great
orce of American public opinion be-
iind the plan to divide work and to
ive all living wages.
"The essence of the plan," he ex-
plained, "is a universal limitation of
hours of work per week for any in-
lividual by common consent, and a
universal payment" of wages above
a minimum, also by common con-
In his third talk to the nation
since his inauguration, the President
analyzed the full program which
Congress gave him the power to car-
ry through.
He said the credit of the nation
had' been maintained by balancing
the budget. The credit of the. in-.
dividual, he said, was being main-
tained by restoring the purchasing
power of the dollar, and by the
home-loan act, the farm-loan act
and the bankruptcy act.
No Pork Barrel
He assured there would be no
"smell of the pork barrel" in admin-
istration of the $3,300,000,000 public
works program.
Turning to the task of building a
"more lasting prosperity," he said,
"we cannot attain that in a nation
half boom and half broke."
Two things, he declared, must be
done to find better days: First, im-
provement of the prices of farm pro-
ducts; second, "bringing flack in-
dustry along sound lines."
Mr. Roosevelt expressed confidence
that farm conditions were improving
and would continue so under opera-
tion of the farm act.
He then went into, his appeal for
wholehearted support for the nation-
al plan for shorter working hours
higher wages.

To improve rural education and to
give new impetus to industrial educa-
tion are the two main objectives of
the State Department of Public In-
struction, Dr. Paul F. Voelker, state
superintendent, stated in an address
to members of the Michigan Educa-
tion Clubs and Pi Lambda Theta at
the Union last night.
With his appropriation cut from
approximately $156,000 to $76,000
this year, Dr. Voelker has been forced
to reduce his personnel from 46 to
26 persons and to eliminate some of
the work, chiefly the labor involved
in filling out and filing cards in
child accounting, throwing that re-
sponsibility entirely upon the county
school commissioners.-
Dr. Voelker's confidence in the
members of his staff was clearly in-
dicated. "The department now has
the best set-up that Michigan has
ever had," he said, "and we aim to
create a long-range plan for Mich-
igan education suited to present con-
ditions and one that should remain
workable for at least ten years."
"Education should be moulded not
by politicians and bankers, but by
educators," he continued, "and the
time has come when the educators
must together work out a plan to tear
down the old and put in the new"
The following appointments were
announced by Dr. Voelker:
Assistant superintendent, Pau
Thompson; assistant elementary cu-
