State Head Elliott Warns
Dealing with parts of a pupil's
makeup rather than treating him as
a whole is one of the biggest crimes
of the present day school system,
Prof. Howard Y. McClusky of the
education school said yesterday af-
ternoon in his lecture at theninth
session of the Summer Education
A definite loss to the school sys-
tem of. the State would result in the
.event that the sales tax is amended

the audience at the eighth session of

'Disciplined Imagination' Need
For Scholarship, Jones States,

Visiting Professor Urges
Students Of English To
Study Philosophy, Art
The "disciplined imagination,"
which will maintain the proper per-
spective for the humane scholarship
and humane, criticisms of our time,
must be preserved inEnglish scholar-
ship if the integrities of humanism
are to be maintained, Prof. H. S. V.
Jones of the University of Illinois told
a Summer Session lecture audience
Professor Jones, a member of the
University English faculty this sum-
mer, described "humanism, of what-
ever school, as conservative and in-
tegral, qualities which appear not
only in the more personal ethical
thought of the philosophers, but in
their speculations upon the state and
the order of the universe." His lec-
ture was entitled "Integrity in Hu-
Preserve Integrity
Not an absolute, mystical and dog-
matic spirit, the genius of conserva-
tive humanism is one of relativity and
compromise, and integrity regarded
as a technique rather than a terminal,
a variable rather than a constant, the
speaker said,
"In the ancient world moral
integrity and intellectual integrity
have much to do with the integrity of
art," Professor Jones said.
"Unless academic scholarship in
English is to be merely a recording
secretary, instead of one in constant
correspondance with the worlds of
philosophy and art, unless moral crit-
icism is to be chiefly a recording an-
gel, out of sympathetic touch with
the relativity of all things human, we
should preserve the integration of
these integrities in the humane schol-
arship and the humane criticism of
our time.
Take Philosophy, Art
"This implies," . the speaker said,
"that our urgent need in research and
humane scholarship is not further
insistence upon scientific method,
though that in its place is important;
but an education of the imagination
in a way to comprehend and integrate
values that are at one and the same
time ethical, intellectual and ar-
As a method of accomplishing edu-
cation of the imagination Professor

Jones suggested that graduate stu-
dents in English take courses in phil-
sophy and art.
"Then perhaps their theses, how-
ever technical and minute, would be I
nore responsible to some scale of
values, set more often in some system
of ideas, and written prevailingly in a
less barbarous style," he said.
"The narrow view excludes all thatA
s joyous," he concluded. "The larg-
r, the more relative, the more im-
iginative view should not only in-
ure the integrity of our humanism,
ut should bring occasionally 'thoseG
reflective or far-seeing moments
when the mind is like the retentive
ar which in a silence following upon
nusic, gathers up the mounting
trains in a quiet rapture'.

Attorneys File Damages t
Against Detroit Youth C
Whose Truck Killed
John C. Csach, 21-year-old De- a

as defendant in civil action for a A
total of $90,000 planned against him w
by local attorneys for a crash last I
Friday which took the lives of two
Ann Arbor negroes and seriously in-
jured two more, although a coron- f
er's jury exonerated him from all h
negligence is the inquest held Wed- s

Named with Csach as co-defend- h
ants in the suit were Glenn Allen, '
his employer, Henry E. Hamann and
Virgil F. Nichols, owners of the truck p
and trailer he was driving, all of De- t
troit, and Associated Truck Lines, j
Inc.. and Western Michigan Trans-

The action asks $25,000 for eachb
of the two injured negroes, Fred S.h
Adams, 52 years old, and Richard "
Woods, 28 years old, and $25,000 for
the estates of Edmond Carter, 43h
years old, driver of the car in which
the four plaintiffs were riding, andh
Frank Fields, 50 years old, both oft
whom were instantly killed in the
The bill of complaint alleges thatd
Csach was guilty of "gross and ma-~
licious negligence," and that he was
driving his truck, loaded with six
ons of cast iron jacks, 50 miles an
hour, thus being unable to come to
a halt in the clear distance ahead of
The coroner's jury, however, ac-t
cepted Csach's testimony that he had

Yanks made it two out of three over

Tigers were shoved back into third
place by half a game, as the Indians
took over the runner-up berth.
Two errors by Goose Goslin aided
the Yanks in scoring. In the third,

Grand Rapids Minister Is
Witness To Attempt On
Monarch's Life
LONDON, July 16. - () - Edward
f England, a king for almost six
months, rode unharmed today into
ange of a loaded, levelled pistol which
as knocked from the hands of a
ondon malcontent.
The pistol, taken from the hand
f its crippled, baldheaded owner by
middle-aged heroine in grey, clat-
tered harmlessly to the roadway be-
ind the King's horse on crowded
constitution Hill.
The malcontent, George Andrew
McMahon, 34, once an editor and
inative of Scotland, struggled in
he strong arms of London bobbies.
Whisked to a Bow Street dock, he
wailed: "I didn't want to hurt him.
[only did it as a protest!"
'Protest' Unexplained
His "protest" was not explained
or the man was incoherent. Since
ie assailed Sir John Simon, the home
ecretary, and said he had tried to
'each him, some suggested he may

He was charged with "unlawful
)ossession of a firearm with intent
o endanger life" and remanded to
ail for eight days.
The King was returning from Hyde
Park to Buckingham Palace with a
brigade of guards. At Hyde Park
he presented new colors to six bat-
alions of troops and told them:
'Humanity cries out for peace."
He was in officer's uniform. With
him was his oldest brother, the Duke
of York. At the Park, Queen Mary
had watched the brilliant presenta-
ion of colors.
Just as his horse passed under the
Wellington arch, the object of hun-
dreds of eyes, a stocky man limped
swiftly through the ranks of specta-
tors and police at the edge of the
'Woman In Gray'
The King straightened in his saddle.
He looked intently to the left. His
horse quivered visibly, its ears
A little, unidentified woman,
dressed in gray and accompanied by
a fair-haired girl, struck quickly at
the man's outstretched arm and the
revolver, loaded in four of its five
chambers, flew in a wide arc to the
paving, between th King and his
"The King seemed completely un-
moved, but the excitement of the
crowd nearby was intense," said an
eye-witness, C. Harold Einecke,
Grand Rapids, Mich., who is here
on a holiday. Einecke is minister of
music at Park Congregational Church
in the Michigan city.
"Soldiers and police rushed for-
ward. A number of women in the
crowd screamed. Several fainted."
The King, seemingly the coolest
person in the whole nation, rode on
to the palace, saluted Queen Mary,
who was then standing on a balcony,
and vanished in the inner cour.t-

In First

Criticizes Grade System
Professor McClusky's, answer to
this question was that the schools are
failing to develop "beautifully in-
tegrated personalities."
The marking system was given by
him as one of the chief reasons why
the schools are "falling down." He
stated that the marking systems in
use today do not take proper cogni-
zance of individual differences of the
students. Instead, he said, it makes
for "the awarding of extrinsic re-
wards which are totally irrelevant to
the purpose of the system."
A second cause for the failure of the
schools to fully develop the personali-
ties of the students lies in the method
by which teachers are placed in the
educational system, Professor Mc-
Clusky said. "We do not pick out
carefully enough those people who
should become teachers," he added.
The training process of future teach-
ers was also criticized as being de-
Praises Part-Time Idea
Teachers in the class rooms do not
give enough attention to the individ

true because the teachers do not re-

said. The medium or the average of
the class is considered, Professor Mc-
Clusky said, but this method does not

Administration Soon
TRAVERSE CITY, July 16.-()-
Gov. Frank D. Fitzgerald reported
an improvement of more than $10,-
000,000 in state finances during the
past 12 months, in his first annual
fiscal accounting tonight.
"The general fund," the governor
said, "has gone out of the red, into
the black. With a present balance
of $4,023,000 its condition has im-
proved by approximately $10,400,000
over last year. The government of
Michigan, after floundering for years
in a backwash of deficits, is finan-
cially sound-as sound as that of any
state in the union. The era of gov-
ernment by red ink in Michigan is
gone as long as this administration
remains in power. Any other than
a strict pay-as-you-go policy is a
betrayal of the people.
CondemnsdDetroit Policy
"We have had a glaring example
of what may happen when carefree,
open handed public spending takes
the place of business-like administra-
tion. It took place in a great city in
our own state a few years ago. That
city spent and spent, on the plea it
was helping the poor. It spent until
its credit was exhausted, in spite of
the protests of alarmed taxpayers
who objected, not to helping the poor,
but to seeing their money squandered.
"This being a campaign year, we
may expect a flood of proposals prom-
ising bigger and better government,
and at the same time, lower taxes.
Advocates of a reduced sales tax have
already made known their views. An-
other group would eliminate all prop-
erty taxes. Other similar ideas will
be proposed. I suggest that each of
these proposals be accompanied by a
statement showing which state serv-
ice or which state institution the
proposed cut should apply to.
'Blind Subterfuge'
"A reduction in taxes, made with-
out a well-considered plan for an
equal reduction in the costs of gov-
ernment, is a blind subterfuge. It's
like telling your wife you are going
to cut the family budget $40 a month,
and doing it by not paying the rent.
"The safe, intelligent way of lower-
ing taxes is to adopt a comprehensive
program for the revamping of our
worn-out administrative system, elim-
inating or consolidating agencies
whose duties over-lap or duplicate
each other. I submitted such a pro-
gram to the last legislature, without
success. I still believe init, and given
the opportunity, I propose to submit
it again in substantially the same

Ford made one of his rare radio au-

to his home city.
Speaking over a national network
from the park on the lower Rouge S

no actual scarcity in food supplies.
The same report, however, estimated
the domestic supplies would be about
one per cent under the like June,
1934-June 1935-period, also includ-
ing a great drought period.
Irreparable Damage
Grain trade advices asserted irre-
parable damage had been incured
by the corn crop over a belt from
Kansas and Oklahoma eastward
through Indiana. In Illinois ten coun-
ties in the southern part of the state,
A WPA director reported, had "prac-
tical crop failures."
Prices for corn jumped the four
cent limit at the opening of the Chi-
cago board of trade and finished at
that figure, a new seasonal top, De-
spite heavy profit-taking July de-
livery finished at 89 cents a bushel.
Wheat spurted three cents on reports
of continued heat and deterioration
in Canada.
No general alleviation could be ex-
pected for at least two more days,
Forecaster J. R. Lloyd of the Chicago
weather office said. He predicted
somewhat cooler weather for the Da-
kotas and parts of Minnesota and
Nebraska, however.
Today in Pierre, S. D., the highest
noon temperature of the season-109
degrees-was endured. Other highs
about that hour included: Aberdeen,
108; Mitchell, 105; Bismark, N. D.,
100; Kearney, Neb., 102; Beatrice,
Neb., 103; Lincoln, Neb., 105; Falls
City, Neb., 105; and Norfolk, Neb.;
Warmer Weather Looms
Warmer weather was again in store
for parts of Illinois, Western Mich-
igan, and most of the Ohio and Mis-
sissippi Valleys and the other plain
states. In Chicago where more tem-
perature conditions have prevailed
the past two days, a return of 90-
100 degree heat was predicted. The
first half of this month has been
the second driest on record in the
Chicago vicinity, exceeded only by
that of 1898.
Relief measures for the adrought
harried regions proceeded along a
front extending from Washington,

D. C., to the parched plains of the
west. Forty three more counties in
Kentucky, North Carolina, and Geor-
gia were added to the emergency
drought areas by the AAA. This made
the national drought aid sector 452
counties in extent.
At Bismarck, N. D., resettlement
Administrator Rexford G. Tugwell,
declared his agency would take full
responsibility for providing imme-
diate help to needy farmers.
The state relief director in Minne-
sota estimated $1,000,000 would be re-
quired to provide work in the next
three months for 5,000 drought im-
poverished farmers in 13 counties.
