Active Command Of Post
Office; Howes Selected
WASHINGTON, July 7. - (P) -
James A. Farley, under an arrange-
ment announced today by President
Roosevelt, will take a payless leave
of absence and relinquish active com-
mand of the postoffice department
August 1 to devote his entire time
until after the election to an effort
to keep the New Deal in power.
Thus was answered, for the time
being at least, the months-old ques-
tion raised by critics who objected
to Farley being postmaster general
and chairman of the Democratic na-
tional committee at the same time.
Not Present
The tall, bald-headed New Yorker,
who also holds the chairmanship of
the New York State Democratic corn-
mittee, was not present when the
President made the announcement at
his press conference. But Parley was
said by friends to have favored just
such an arrangement for the coming
The President said his 1932 cam-
paign generalissimo would take leave
without pay and during the interim
William W. Howes 'of South Dakota,
first assistant postmaster general,
would take charge o the department.
The start of Parley's leave was de-
ferred until August 1, the President
said, becse. the postmaster general
wanted more time to complete the
annual financial statement for the
department covering the fiscal year
just ended.
On August 1, Farley will have'
served three years and five months
in the Roosevelt cabinet, which, to
date, has seen only one change from
its original setup.
Republicans Demand Resignation
Republican regulars are not the
only ones who have demanded that
Parley either resign from the cabinet
or his party's national chairmanship.
Senator Norris, Nebraska Republican
independent and a strong supporter
of Roosevelt, has taken the Senate
floor frequently to assail the New
Yorker for holding his dual assign-
Whether the leave arrangement will
satisfy the critics remains to be seen.
Some administration officials said
today Farley would resign from the
cabinet, if Roosevelt is re-elected, and
return to the building supply or some
other business. Others predicted he
would return to the post office depart-
'Common Cold'
To Be Subject
. Of Smillie Talk
Visiting Faculty Member Is
Prominent In Public
wealth Administration

Dr. Nelson G. Smillie of Harvard
University, a faculty member of the
Summer Session medical school, will
lecture on "The Common Cold" at
5 p.m. today in Natural Science Au-
ditorium. It will be the seventh
lecture of the Summer Session series.
His lecture will be principally about
his studies of "common colds" in dif-
ferent parts of the world and their
wide variation in types and intensi-
ties, Dr. Smillie said yesterday.
Dr. Smillie has been prominent in
public health administration in this
country and abroad for many years.
For eight years he was a member of
the International Health Division of
the Rockefeller Foundation, and for
two years director of the Institute de
Hygiene, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

American League All-Star batters on
their heads yesterday and the older
circuit won 4-3, for its first victory
in four starts in the annual baseball
Getting away to a fast 2-0 lead in
the second inning when the Nationals
found Lefty Bob Grove for two runs,
they never were headed after that, al-
though the Americans had the tying
run on base in the final inning. They
also failed in the seventh when Joe
Di Maggio, who looked anything but
a star player in the game, failed to
come through with the bases full.
Best Performance By Dean
It was Dizzy Dean who gave the
best performance on the mound. Only
nine men faced him during the three
innings he worked. Although he
walked two men, one was the victim
of a double play and the other was
caught off the bag. Hubbell allowed
but two hits, gave no runs, and
pitched and fielded brilliantly. It
was Lon Warneke who came to Curt
,Davis' rescue in the seventh, stopping
the Americans cold after they had
filled the bases.
But while these moundsmen were
having a big day, they were aided by
the potent bats of their teammates.
Frank Demaree opened the second
with a single past Appling. Gabby
Hartnett, another Chicago slugger,
pasted a line drive in the direction of
Di Maggio. Joe missed an attempted
shoe string catch and the blow was
good for three bases, Demaree scor-
ing. Gabby scored on Whitney's deep
fly to Averill in center.
Galan Gets Home Run
The senior loop team got to Rowe
for a couple more runs in the fifth.
Augie Galan hit the flag post in right
for a home run. Billy Herman
singled to right and continued to
second when Di Maggio fumbled the
ball. After Collins walked, Medwick
singled to left to drive in what proved
to be the winning run.
It was in the seventh inning that
the American team came within an
ace of winning or tying up the game.
With Davis in the box, Gehrig took a
hold of one and sailed it into the
bleachers for a home run. Averill
and Dickey were easy outs, but pinch-
hitters Goslin and Foxx singled in
succession and Selkirk walked to fill
the bases.. Luke Appling's single
scored Goslin and Foxx. Warneke
replaced Davis. Gehringer walked
to fill the bases, but Di Maggio, with
booes ringing in his ears, lined out to
Durocher for the final out.
The Americans threatened again
in the ninth when Gehringer doubled,
but again Di Maggio made the final
out, leaving Charlie stranded on the

Courtis Urges P
Organization Of 1
All Instructors e
Believes It Will Make Them n
More Powerful In Civict
And Political Affairs a
An organization of teachers in or- i
der that they might become more
professionally minded was advocated
by Prof. Stuart A. Courtis of the ed-t
ucation school in his lecture yester-i
day afternoon on "Teacher Partici-e
pation in Social Reconstruction" be- i
fore an assembly of the faculty ands
students of the education school.'e
Could Be Powerfult
Professor Courtis stated that thep
teachers should and could be one of
the most powerful groups in thet
country and that they should makes
their great potential force felt in po-v
litical circles. Just the opposite is,
true, however, according to Professor
Courtis, and a show of hands on the
part of the audience demonstrated
that the listeners were with him. t
The chief reason for the inactivityt
of teachers in political, social andi
civic circles, the speaker said, is that
philosophy of rugged individualism
has been maintained in the school
system most strongly. Autocratic,
ideas dominate the educational sys-
tem from top to bottom, from the
school boards to the instructors in the
classrooms, Professor Courts said.
Four specific plans of action were
given for the teachers to follow in
order that they may become more ac-
tive in social reconstruction so need-
ed in this time of crisis, Professor
Courtis said.
Urges Actions

The first action urged by the
speaker was a more careful study of
the issues prevalent in various flelds
today. He stated that teachers al-
ways urge students to get the facts
and that teachers should also get the
The second thing urged by Profes-
sor Courtis was the more active par-
ticipation in civic organizations by I
teachers. He added that teachers were
very capable individuals and their
force should be felt in the communi-
A third method by which teachers
could be more active socially, ac-
cording to Professor Courtis, was by
some means of organization within
themselves. By banding together,.

cribed as "not necessarily the last of
series of acts" calculated "to free

us burden-the Treaty of Versailles"
y Professor Ehrmann in his address
n "Germany and the Rhineland."
It was pointed out that already
nore recent developments in the
Danzig question are attracting atten-
ion away from the Rhineland crisis,
vhich the speaker described as "acute
or several weeks."
Invasion Planned
Germany's invasion of the Rhine-
land was carefully planned and
aunched at a time when Europe was
:reoccupied with the Italo-Ethio-
Aian situation, and when the weak-
ness of the League of Nations had
ready been demonstrated, Profes-
sor Ehrmann stated,
Tracing the history of the disput-
d area, "for centuries a battle-
ground" because of its importance for
routes, as far back as the 16th cen-
tury, the speaker attributed the
March crisis to what Germany alleges
re "inconsistencies" in the recent
pact between the French and Rus-
sian governments.
Justify Violation
The German troops marched into
the demilitarized Rhineland zone in
violation of the Locarno Pact because
t was believed that the French gov-
ernment had also violated the pact
in sanctioning the accord with Rus-
sia, Professor Ehrmann said. "How-
ever, the Powers condemned Ger-
many, denying there were inconsis-
tencies between the Franco-Russian
pact and the Locarno agreement."
Professor Ehrmann pointed out
that the "unfortunate feature" of the
situation from the German point-of-
view is that the Reich was done "a
great injustice at the end of the war."
"Germany protests that she re-
quested the Armistice on a basis of
Woodrow Wilson's 14 Points and cer-
tain pre-Armistice agreements, but
that the actual Treaty of Versailles
is a repudiation of Wilsonian prin-
