FRMAI', JULY 17, X936


Iowa Senator
Injured Fatally
In Auto Crash
61-Year-Old Louis Murphy
Fails To Hold Car After
Blowout; Wife Treated
CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis., July 16.
-()-A careening automobile over-
turning in a ditch after a tire blow-
out, carried United States Senator
Louis Murphy of Iowa to his death
Homeward bound from a north
woods vacation, the 61-year-old sen-
ator, a vigorous protagonist on New
Deal farm aid plans, was injured fa-
tally near Bloomer, north of here, on
his 19th wedding anniversary.
He was crushed against the steering
wheel of the car he was driving, and
died in an ambulance a block from
a hospital here.
Mrs. Murphy and their companions,
Mr. and Mrs. F. Woodward of Du-
buque, where the Murphys also lived,
were under treatment at the hospital
tonight for severe shock.
Doctors said they were concerned
over the condition of Woodward,
publisher of the Dubuque Telegraph-
Herald, because of his heart.
Murphy's death was the sixth
among members of the present United
States Senate. He was the second
Iowa member of Congress to die in
recent weeks. Rep. B. M. Jacobsen
succumbed recently at Rochester,
Murphy, a Democrat, had little
practical experience when he was
elected to the Senate in 1932. Al-
though he had served for eight years
as collector of internal revenue for
Son of a newspaper editor, he took
over active managerment of the Du-
buque Telegraph-Herald at the age
of 26. In 1920 he became tax con-
sultant and started an outdoor ad-
vertising business.
In his election to the Senate he
defeated Henry Field, Republican,
and former Senator Smith W. Brook-
hart, independent.
As Senator, Murphy was one of
the strongest supporters of the ad-
ministration's agricultural policies,
and was one of the original pro-
ponents of the crop loan farm aid
Pupils Should
Be Instructed
As Individuals
Prof. McClusky Describes
Advisable Methods For
Primary Education
(Continued from Page 1)
her time between actual teaching and
the advising of students was advocat-
ed by Professor McClusky.
One method of counselling which
has been tried and proven quite suc-
cessful was mentioned by John M.
Trytten of the education school who
led the discussion. This system was
developed by Dr. Allen, assistant sup-
erintendent of schoolh in Providence,
New Responsibilities
In this system, Mr. Trytten ex-
plained, one counsellor is assigned to
certain pupils in the seventh grade
and he follows the pupils along
through the ninth grade. From here
a new man is assigned to the group
who follows the individuals through
the last three years of high school
and even after graduation. The

counsellor who takes up- the task at
the beginning of the tenth year also
confers with the 'counsellor immed-
iately below him in the line, Mr.
Trytten said, and thus the high
school counsellor is afforded an op-
portunity to get in touch with his
future pupils while they are still in
the' grade schools.
Professor McClusky emphasized the
point that simply as schools the pres-
ent day educational institutions were
doing as well as they have ever done
if not better, but, he added, the rap-
idly changing social order of today
has laid an ever-increasing amount of
new duties and responsibilities at the
door of the school. Many of these
duties were performed formerly by
the home but are now within the
province of the school, he said.
Advocate Sales Tax
Dr. Elliott told the teachers, sup-
erintendents and other school of-
ficials attending the morning session
yesterday that the school system may
lose between $45,000,000 and $50,000,-
000 in revenue if the sales tax is
amended and the property tax re-
"The loss of these revenues would
reflect back upon the schools," he
said, ""and no other sources of in-
come have been suggested to take
their place."
Dr. Elliott told the conference that
he realized that the tax on food-

University Broadcast Advises
Michigan Co-Eds, Vacationers


Summer Session Students
From Different Sections
Demonstrate Speech
Do you say "idea" or "idea-r?" Or
do you have still another way to say
it? If you don't know just what you
do say you should have listened to
the broadcast given yesterday by the
radio broadcasting class, under the
direction of Prof. Waldo Abbott, over
station WJR, Detroit, front the Uni-
versity studio in Morris Hall.
Among the many interesting fea-
tures of yesterday's broadcast was a
skit bringing the dialects of students
here in the Summer Session from the
East, the South, the Mid-West and
the Southwest. The word "idea" was
passed around from mouth to mouth
and when everybody had had cheir
say it was pretty hard to remember
just what way you pronounced the
thing yourself. The parts in this sit
wvere taken by Miss Pennock, East,
Miss Tucker, Southwest, Miss Boyce.
Mid-West, .and Miss Johnson, South.
The skit was conducted by Miss Trip.
Where To Vacation
The opening skit was a scene taken
in the home of the Merryweather
family, with Mrs. Merryweather, tak-
en by Mrs. Hamilton, Mr. Merry-
weather, given by Mr. Barb and Miss
Craver in the role of the daughter. As
indicated by the name of the fam-
ily, Merryweather, the skit concerned
the dialogue between the' trio to de-
cide just where they should spend
a two-week's vacation.
During the courseof the conver-
sation it was noted that the daugh-
ter, and father were the out-door
lovers of the family (hence the name
stuffs is severe upon the poor but
that the schools benefit the class
which is most severely hit. "More-
over," he added, "it is the only tax
many people pay. It is a tax every-
one, rich or poor, pays and the only
one in which there is no delinquency."'
Emens Epeaks
Dr. Lee M. Thurston, deputy sup-
erintendent of Public Instruction and
former assistant superintendent of
schools in Ann Arbor, gave a talk at
the session on the state curriculum
program inaugurated by Dr. Elliott
last fall.
A discussion of the teachers' cer-
tification code of the board of edu-
cation was given by John R. Emens,
director of .teacher training and cer-
tification of the department of pub-
lic instruction.
IMLAY CITY, July 16.-t)-Offi-
cers investigated an automobile ac-
cident Thursday in which a woman
and her son were killed and seven
persons injured. The accident oc-
curred Wednesday night when cars
driven by Edward Jubanbille and
Father Edward J. Miotke, 38, of the
Ulby Parish, collided at an intersec-
tion. Mrs. Jubanville and her son,
Thomas, were killed and the others
were taken to hospitals for treat-

Mcrryweather, of course) while the
wife preferred to stay in the northern
resorts and have the comforts of
home. Before long everything came
dcwn to the fact that the Cherry
Festival was about to take place in
Traverse City and that everything
you were seeking to do on your vaca-
tUon could be found right there. If
you couldn't catch snipe's, or some-
thing, there it was bound to be near-
by, anyway.
Advice To Co-Eds
The Cherry Festival presentation
was followed by a talk on the air-
cooled Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre to
attract your attention to the fact that
"Mary of Scotland" is being given
by the Repertory Players this week
through Saturday. A brief summary of
the essence of the rivalry between
Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary
was given during Mrs. Brewer's talk.
A dramatic-book-review was given
on Elizabeth Eldridge's "Co-Eti-
quette" with the parts of two modern
sorority sisters taken by Lee Pen-
nock and Marjorie Stefan. Accord-
ing to the modern point-of-view such
things as "what not to do" as a re-
minder to the young freshman co-ed
just didn't stand up. Nor did the
co-eds of today seem to approve of
the subject of fraternity pins.
Next Broadcast Monday
But all in all, aside from the fact
that the best way was to try four
years at college yourself, Miss Eld-
ridge's book was given faithful sup-
port and recommended for the in-
coming co-eds.
The broadcast was concluded with
a few news items, given by Miss
Trip, with facts concerning what's
doing about the campus and in the
geology camp in Colorado. The an-
nouncer for the program was Sam-
uel Birnkrant.
So it would be a good idea to turn
to station WJR next Monday after-
rnon at 1:30 p.m. and hear the next
broadcast. You may hear your.room-
mate's voice! In case you don't hear
your room-mate's voice your bound
to hear some more very interesting
skits and features given by the Radio
Broadcasting class.
Women Hold Swimming
Party At I-M Building
Members of the Women's Physical
Education Department were hostesses

Athletic Building to all graduates and

sical Education Department.
Mary Jane Mueller, '38Ed, who was
in charge of the party, was assisted by
a committee composed of Doris Staeb-
ler, '37Ed, Helene Kipf, '37Ed, and
Frances Alpert, Ed.
