Tests For Men


Should Help Us Greatly In
Solving Social Problems,
speaker Asserts
A prediction that the next ten yearsj
wouldr'see a remarkable advancement
in the precision of mental measure-
ment tests was made yesterday by
Prof. Edward B. Greene of the psy-
chology department in one of the
Summer Session lecture series.. His
topic was "Recent Advances and Ap-
plications of Mental Measurements."
. "In the next ten years we shall
also have a growth in the develop-
ment and administration of standard
tests which will doubtless give a per-
son a chance not only to predict with
considerable accuracy his success in
various industrial fields, but also his
success in marriage and in various so-
cial contacts," Professor Greene said,
In seeking to furnish precise tools
for studies of human action, mental
measurement faces three persistent
and difficult problems, the speaker
The analysis of processes or ele-
ments involved in a particular series
of action, the first of the three prob-
lems mentioned by the speaker, has
two approaches.
"One is a qualitative, subjective ap-
proach in which a person classifies
action as different because he experi-
ences them as different," Professor
Greene said. "This has led to the
construction of tests which give sep-
arate measures of acts that are
thought to be independent. From
these tests a general index of ability

es Advance In
tal Measurement
or achievement may also be calcu-
Under this classification, Professor
Greene mentioned the Progressive
Achievement Test, which gives a per-
son's position in his age group on
fifteen sorts of tests, as one of the
most interesting. "The items of these
tests have been carefully chosen so
that one can quickly find out on what
sorts of skills his student is deficient."
The new--style test makes no pen-j
alty for time, as did the old, he said
but instead gives unlimited time and
a classification of items.
In discussing tests given to persons
on the college- level and tests given
in variousgoccupations, Professor
Greene said "These analyses all point
to the great similarity between
achievement tests in school subjects
and general intelligence tests."

somewhat different lines than the!
older methods by Spearman, Hol-

WASHINGTON, July 9.-(P)-_ I
Frank Murphy, of Detroit, submittedf
his resignation as high commissionern
to the Philippine Islands today to run
for governor of Michigan, but Presi-s
dent Roosevelt refused to accept itn
until after the election.-
Murphy, former mayor of Detroit, 1
told the President in a personally-de-t
livered letter that he was running for
governor because he believed that :
"continuance of your leadership ande
the success of the Democratic Party"
in the coming elections were of "first
importance to the people of Michi-t
gan and the country at large." t
Resignation Up To Roosevelt s
His resignation was made subject
to the President's approval and ef-
fective at his pleasure.
In a letter sent to Murphy later in
the day, the President said that he
was holding the resignation "in abey-
ance." He added that Murphy would
be given a leave of absence without
pay for two months beginning Sept. 5.
This would postpone action on the
resignation until after the November
election. The President promised a
"reluctant acceptance" of it at that
time "if developments should com-

the culmination of a drive by
Roosevelt campaign managers to get
Murphy to run as New Deal candi-

fall. He will formally announce his

His action left a vacancy in the
Philippine commissionership for at]
least the next four months. Murphy
has recommended the appointment
of J. Weldon Jones, his financial ad-
viser, as acting commissioner.

President since Murphy left Manila
two months ago. A recent act off

School Ratings
Are Discussed
By Carrothers
The need of better criteria for
judging the efficiency of the secon-
dary schools was stressed by Dr.
George E. Carrothers of the School
of Education who spoke on "The
Committee on the Revision of Stand-
ards for Accrediting Secondary
Schools," yesterday afternoon in the
University High School.
The study of these standards has
been going on for the past three
years, said Dr. Carrothers, and will
throughout the next three. Ever since
1871 the University of Michigan has
accredited schools. At first a school
that was approved was put on the
diploma list of the University. This
meant, said Dr. Carrothers, that their
graduates were accepted for entrance
into the University without examina-
Graually this list included schools
throughout the state. Today, he add-
ed, the University accredits schools
throughout the state and accepts the
accrediting of other states.. The sec-
ondary schools are at present ac-
credited by six regional associations
throughout the United States such
as the North Central Association.
"The trouble," said Dr. Carrothers,
"was that the criteria for accrediting

Farmers Receive Bounties
By Cooperating With
U. S. Soil Conservation
TOPEKA, Kans., July 9. - (P) -An
agreement that farmers should be
paid bounties for soil conserving prac-
tices emerged today from a confer-
ence between Gov. Alf M. Landon and
Frank O. Lowden on 1936 campaign
For more than two hours, the Re-
publican presidential nominee talked
with the veteran Illinois leader.
At the conclusion, Lowden told a
press conference they were "agreed"
on a farm program, and in their
views on concentration of power in
Washington and "the awful extrava-
gance in government, over which" all
our people are aroused.
"Will you campaign for Gov. Lan-
don?" Lowden was asked.
"Sure," he replied. "I don't know
whether I will travel much but I will
make some speeches."
Lowden added his belief that the
outlook for a Landon-Knox victory
was "very hopeful" and "improving
from our standpoint all the time."
"People believe in him," he said
with a gesture toward Landon.

WASHINGTON, July 9. - (P) - A
big ninth inning splurge gave Detroit1
a 10 to 7 victory over Washington to-'
day to open the Tigers' invasion of
the East and enable them to hold
second place in the American League
by two percentage points over the
Boston Red Sox. The Sox who also
won, and Detroit remain virtually
deadlocked, with the advantage of
the pace-setting New York Yankees
trimmed to nine games.
Holding a two-run lead going into
the ninth, the Tigers scored five'
runs on two hits, three passes, two
stolen bases and an error, one of four
Washington misplays.
Their scoring spree came in handy
for the Senators pushed across four
runs themselves in their half of the
inning. The rally drove Joe Sullivan
off the mound, and Schoolboy Rowe
came in to quell the uprising, finally
fanning Red Kress for the last out
with two men on base.
Sullivan, who relieved the starting
pitcher, Roxie Lawson, in the third
'inning, received credit for the vic-
tory. Earl Whitehill who started for
Washington gave way to a pinch
hitter and was replaced by Bill Die-
trich in the seventh, Dietrich being
charged for the loss. Cohen relieved
Dietrich during the big Tiger ninth.
Gerald Walker led the Tigers at
bat with three singles in five ap-
pearances at the plate, while Goose
Goslin, Jack Burns and Bill Rogell
each collected two safeties, one of
Rogell's being a double.
Joe Kubel, Senator first baseman,
led Washington with two singles and
a double.
Washington scored once in the first
on Chapman's walk, and singles by
Kuhel and Stone. The Tigers grabbed'
I a lead in the second as Goslin singled
and was tagged on the baseline on
Walker's grounder; Simmons doubled
putting Walker on third, Owen singled
scoring Walker and Simmons came
home on Hayworth's fly to Stone.

Restoration In Austria
VIENNA, July 9.-(/P)--Germany
and Austria, strongly prompted by
Italy, have reached an extensive ac-
cord which would temporarily pre-
vent a Hapsburgdrestoration, diplo-
matic quarters believed tonight.
Legitimists, however, were still
keeping up a show of courage in
face of a 7-point accord in principle
worked out in negotiations between
Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg and
Franz Von Papen, German miinster
to Austria.
A source close to Italian and Ger-
man diplomatic circles said the ne-
gotiations, now in the third week, al-
most broke down, but after prompt-
ings by Italians, the two nations were
on substantial agreement on these
seven points:
1 Nazi party ban in Austria to be
2. National elements (friendly ex-
tension of German, but not neces-
sarily of Nazi influence) to be per-
mitted activity.
3. National exponents to be in-
cluded 'in Austrian cabinet not later
than fall.
1. Germany's willingness to support
all Austrian measures aimed at equal-
ity, which might, for example, in-
clude the building up of the Austrian
army to 400,000 or 500,000 men.
5 Amnesty for persons convicted
or in concentration camps for Nazi
6. At least a part of Austrian Nazi
refugees now in Germany to be al-
lowed to return home unpunished.
7. Efforts at trade normalization
kicluding lifting of Germany's 1000-
mark visa requirements for Germans
going to Austria. (This has hurt
Austrian tourist trade).
Diplomatic circles stated no form-
al announcement of the accord was
contemplated until fall.
F. DR. Ready
For Vacation,
Leaves Today
WASHINGTON, July 9. -()-
President Roosevelt put in one of
his busiest days of the summer today
winding up affairs of state for his de-
parture tomorrow night on a vacation
From early morning until late in
the afternoon, the Chief Executive
was engaged in conferences with a
steady procession of callers on inter-
national affairs, domestic problems
and politics.
He was so busy with callers that
he curtailed the time usually devoted
to the cabinet session and postponed
until tomorrow a conference with
administration officials on drought
'relief plans.
Tomorrow night the President will
leave for New York where he will
dedicate the huge tri-borough bridge
Saturday morning.

From New York he will go to Hyde
Park for a few days before starting
a two-week vacation cruise off the
coast of Maine and Nova Scotia.
First caller on the President's list
today was Frank Murphy, high com-
missioner to the Philippines, who
submitted his resignation and report-
ed on island affairs.

in Bay City in 1911, but a strong

Even the Upper Peninsula remained
in the grip of the heat. Marquette,
with a high of 101 at 3 p.m., marked
July as the first month since 1901
that the city has had three days of
such hot weather.
The temperature there dropped to
80 at 6:30 p.m., then started climbing
Houghton reported a similar top of
101, but enjoyed a day's minimum of
66 degrees.
At East Lansing, where 96-degree
heat was reported, Michigan State
college authorities told of heavy dam-
age to pasture lands that they thought
would be reflected in decreased pro-
duction by dairy herds.
H. R. Rather, head of the farm
crops division of the college, predicted
that owners would have to resort to
hay as a feed for their animals. He
declined to hazard a guess whether
this would result in higher milk prices.
Rather said Michigan corn grow-
ers were benefitting from the heat
and that it was ideal for wheat, now
being harvested. He added, "it will
do the bean and potato grower no
good," however.
Bay City and Mt. Clemens reported
104 degrees, and Jackson and Sag-
inaw's maximums were almost as
high. Temperatures in the western
half of the State were slightly lower
than yesterday's in most cases. A
heavy shower in Benton Harbor early
today held the top reading well be-
low yesterday's sizzling 106.

At 430 P.M While
Ann Arbor Swelters
The torrid wave which has gripped
Michigan for the greater part of the
week continued yesterday practically
unabated in Ann Arbor as the mer-
cury climbed again to dizzy heights,
officially reaching 99.3 degrees at 4:30
p~m. at the University Observatory.
No prospects for an appreciable let-
up in the heat that has caused great
damage in the drought areas of the
Middle West, could be seen last night
as the weather bureau forecast fair
and continued heat for today.
Yesterday started with the pros-
pect of the temperature surpassing
Wednesday's high mark of 102.2 de-

During the afternoon the temper-

test weather of the summer.
Deaths for the past three days of
blistering weather totalled at least
206 and the list was growing steadily

This'll Cool You Off
TWO RIVERS, Wis., July 9.-(P)
-It was 100 degrees in the shade
today, and WPA workers on a city
park project had to dig through
a four foot snowdrift.
The snow was real, and the drift
was 20 feet long.
It lay at the heart of a dirt
pile placed in the park in March,
when the ground was covered
with a whit, blanket five feet
top. Washington, D. C., had 104.
Philadelphia perspired in 101. Sev-
eral eastern cities counted their first
heat deaths of the year. Newark, N.
J. had an all time heat record of 105.
Rain Is Insufficient
In the drought belt, precipitation
ranging from a trace at Rapid City,
S. D., to 2.42 inches at Effingham,
Ill., stirred hopes for late and for-
age crops. Devils Lake in North Da-
kota, all counties of which have been
designated as "drought emergency"
areas, got a substantial 1.48 inch fall.
There were showers also in Minne-
sota, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Utah,
and Nebraska.
But they weren't enough, said Fore-
caster J R. Lloyd of the weather bu-
reau station here. He said that while
more rains were sighted for North
Dakota, parts of Minnesota, Wiscon-
sin and upper Michigan tonight or
tomorrow, they would have no mater-
ial effect on the general drought.
Wheat Price Rises
The dry spell, which already has
rolled up losses exceeding $300,000,-
000 and made government depend-
ents of 204,000 farm families, con-
tinued to dominate the domestic
grain trade.
Wheat resumed its advance after
yesterday's setbacks, when later ad-
vices from Canada indicated that 10,-
000,000 to 12,000,000 acres of prairie
wheat were still in grave danger de-
spite Wednesday's rains. July de-
livery closed here at 1.06$%-. With
prices generally %-1 % higher. About
20 cents a bushel has been added to
wheat's value here since drought de-
l struction got underway in the north-
west spring wheat belt a month ago.
Late field reports continued to em-
phasize need for rain within a week
if the important corn crop was to be
. saved.
J Meanwhile, the government's aid
program was underway and Presi-
dent Roosevelt announced in Wash-
ington he would review its progress at
a conference with directors Friday.
