Constitution' s
Legal Reform
Seen By.Dorr
Speaker Predicts Changes

Amending Process

Of Judicial Review
Says Constitutional Issues
Will Not Be Important
In Campaign
The prediction that in the next four
years there will be considerable con-
stitutional reform without much
amendment was made yesterday by
Prof. Harold M. Dorr, who addressed
a Summer Session lecture audience
on "The Supreme Court and Consti-
tutional Reform."
"By 1940, whichever party is vic-
torious in the ensuing election, the
constitutional system will bear, at
.least, a superficial resemblance to
that of 1932, but we shall have never-
theless witnessed considerable consti-
tutional reform without much consti-
tutional amendment, the Supreme
Court and judicial review notwith-
standing," he said.
Traditional Campaign Seen
Professor Dorr, in speaking of the
current presidential campaign, stated
the campaign will be conducted along
the traditional line, regardless of the
constitutional issues which were earl-
ier raised.
"It is almost certain now, in spite
of Governor Landon's statements,
that constitutional issues are not to
play "an important part in this presi-
dential campaign," he said.
In discussing the possibilities for
extension of national authority
through constitutional amendment,
Professor Dorr viewed as "rather re-
emote" the possibilities for bringing
about social and economic reform.
"If we attempt to eliminate ju-
dicial review," Professor Dorr said,
"we are faced by the consequences of
an attempt to amend the Constitu-
Restriction Likely
The one method of modification of
the procedure of judicial review which
the speaker believed held most prom-
ise would be the restriction of the
right of the Supreme Court to re-
view cases in which an individual or
a corporation charged that the na-
tional government had infringed up-
on the rights of a state, as in the case
of the NRA Supreme Court trial.
The speaker next considered the
possibilities for reform within the
Constitution itself, but here again
progress is handicapped, it was
pointed out, because "we live under a
Constitution which is what the judges
say it is."

Dr. Hopkins Has
Annual Tour D
Hitch-Hikes, Is Held As
'Hostage' On Visit To
U. Of M.'s 3 Outposts
Can you imagine Summer Ses-
sion Director Louis A. Hopkins hitch-
hiking? What is even more terrible,
can you picture him being held as a
"hostage" for a mere gasoline can
because a northern Michigan native
wouldn't "trust him?"
Nevertheless, these things did hap-
pen and all on Dr. Hopkins' annual
goodwill tour of the various Universi-
ty summer outposts in northern
Michigan. But despite all these mis-
fortunes, the Director, who left a
week ago Monday and returned late
Saturday, insists that he had a
"grand time."
The hitch-hiking episode occured
when Dr. Hopkins and Dean Samuel
T. Dana of the forestry school, who
accompanied him on the trip, were
driving from the University's forestry
station near Iron River in the upper
peninsula to the biological station at
Douglas Lake.
"We ran out of gas, much to our
embarrassment," Dr. Hopkins said,
Probation Given
3 Local -Youths
for Burglaries
Three Ann Arbor boys, 14 and 15
years old, yesterday were ordered
placed on probation after Probate
Court hearing before Judge Jay G.
Pray, in a clean-up of burglaries from
four unoccupied fraternity houses,
one sorority house, and the Law Club.
The first five houses had all been
entered during July and the Lawyers'
Club theft was reported in May. .
According to Detective Harry
Smith, in charge of the investigation,
the boys were arrested after they
had been- seen leaving one of the
houses, and almost all articles taken
were recovered.
Among the loot were a radio, mech-
anism of a second radio removed
from the cabinet, two electric clocks,
four telephones, a loud speaker, 200
phonograph records and a set of fenc-
ing foils.
The houses entered were Phi Delta

Good Time On
es ite Difficulties
"and as it was about the most desolate
country I have ever seen, with no
sign of a gasoline station for miles,
the only thing I could do was to
hitch-hike back to the nearest town."
Dr. Hopkins left Dean Dana in the
car and easily "bummed" his way
back to the nearest town. When he
got there, however, the native gaso-
line dispensor would not trust him
with the can, explaining that "These
gol darned tourists are always run-
ning away with them." Dr. Hopkins
then offered himself as a "hostage,"
while the native's son drove his truck
to the place where they had run out
of gas, picked up the car and Dean
Dana and brought both back to the
small town.
"He might have figured out a more
economical way for himself," the di-
rector said, "but he turned out to be
a pretty good fellow. After we chat-
ted a while, I found out that he knew
some people I knew in Lansing."
Visited Frankfort
Dr. Hopkins, accompanied by Dean
Dana left a week ago Monday morn-
ing on his tour. They stopped off
first at Frankfort where Dr. Hopkins
visited his wife who is spending the
summer at their cottage on the lake.
Tuesday morning they took the ferry
across to, Menominee and drove
northward 15 miles to the geography
There they were met by Prof. Ken-
neth C. McMurray, director of the
station and chairman of the Uni-
versity geography department. Pro-
fessor McMurray took Dr. Hopkins
on a 100-mile survey trip of Delta
County, the territory in which the
station is located.
"The cook there, who has been
with the station in its several loca-
tions, insisted that the Dean and
myself stay for dinner as he had pre-
.pared something special," Dr. Hop-
kins recounted. "The 'special'," he
continued, "was a pie-the best I
have ever eaten."
From the geography station, the
two went directly to the University's
forestry station near Iron River.
"We arrived there about 6 a.m. and

LaGuardia Appoints Paul
Kern To Municipal Civil

Was Daily Editor;
Graduated In 1929
Mayor's Legal Advisor To

Paul J. Kern, a graduate of the.
University literary college, and a
former editorial director of The Daily,"
has been appointed a member of the;
powerful Municipal Civil Servicej
Commission of the city of New York
by Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, it was
learned here yesterday.
The appointment, made last Fri-
day, was to an unexpired term which
will terminate in 1940.
.Kern has been an assistant corp-
oration counsel and the mayor's legal
advisor since La Guardia was elected
mayor on the Fusion ticket in 1934.
He first met La Guardia when the
latter was a Congressman, and Kern
was in Washington on a "political
interneship" from Columbia Univer-
sity Law School, serving as a mem-
ber of the Senate bill drafting com-
mission. At 'that time, Kern had
gone to the Congressman's office to'
point out to him that a bill he was
introducing had certain fatal legal
weaknesses. He was practically kicked
out of La Guardia's office.
Helped In Campaign
When the bill was later judicially
overridden on the very weaknesses
Kern had stressed, he was back at
Columbia Law School as a member
of the faculty, and when La Guardia
asked him to help in the mayoral
campaign, he secured leave of ab-
sence, and became a member. of the
city's "official family" after the vic-

At Columbia, where he graduated
from the law school in 1932, he was
a member of the Law Review staff,
and has since written articles for nu-
merous other reviews on legal ques-
tions and New Deal measures. He
was also a member of the Moot Court,
corresponding to the University of
Michigan's Case Club. In his present
position he has jurisdiction over about
140,000 municipal employees.

tickets only, on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday evenings of this week These
tickets are to be secured in advance
at the office of the Summer Session,

Students are cautioned not to bring
guests unprovided with tickets. Ow-
ing to the large number of visitors on
these evenings it has become neces-
sary to exclude those without tickets.
The moon will be shown on these
three evenings. It will be impossible

Scientific Boundaries
Better Than Political

On Annual Program
Artificial Boundaries Are
Far Superior To Natural
Line In Europe
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, chairman of
the political science department, last
night brought the fifth annual series
of lectures sponsored by the Summer
Session on Teaching International
Law to a close by conclusively point-
ing out the complete superiority of
the scientfic astronomical boundary
over the so-called natural line.
The subject of the address was "In-
ternational Boundaries."
"The artificial boundary lines of
North America," Professor Reeves
said, "are the boundary lines of jus-
tice, taking no account of strategy,
terrain, armament, and national se-
Ignored Strategy
The speaker viewed it as fortunate
that "our ancestors, in drawing boun-
dary lines at the close of the Rev-
olution, again in 1818, and also in
1846, determined them in ignorance
of the benefits of the Great Lakes
and the lands to the West and South,
and also in utter oblivion and forget-
fulness of claims of strategy and
"In Europe, the major premise in
constructing a boundary line has al-
ways been strategy and security,"
Professor Reeves stated.
The lines of 49 degrees latitude
and the 141 degrees longitude bound-
ing the United States, "the longest
boundary lines of latitude and longi-
tude, respectively, in the world," were
described as products of a higher
Explains Scientific Method
Professor Reeves called attention to
how civilized states, becoming peopled
to their boundaries, now seek the as-
sistance of science to determine down
to the fraction of an inch what be-
longs to each of them rather than re-
sorting to conflict.
The superiority of artificial boun-
dary lines over European natural
boundaries and their development
was attributed by Professor Reeves to
the two underlying propositions on
which the artificial lines are based.
"In the first place, a straight line
boundary based upon longitude and
latitude never follows, but always pre-
cedes, geographical knowledge.
"Second, longitude and latitude
have always been fixed in advance
of the movement of populations,"
Professor Reeves stated.
Democrats Will
DETROIT, July 27.-P)--Former
Senator James A. Reed of Missouri
disclosed today, that a number of
"Constitutional Democrats" opposed
to President Roosevelt have been in-
vited to attend a conference here
Aug. 7 to shape campaign plans.
Reed, at his summer home near

Fairview, Mich., said that the invita-
tions were sent out by Sterling E.
Edmunds, an attorney of St. Louis,
Mo., who is spending the summer at
Wequetonsing, Mich.
Those invited tohthe meeting, it
was reported, include Former Gov.
Joseph. B. Ely of Massachusetts and
Bainbridge Colby of New York, who
was Secretary of State for a brief time
in the Woodrow Wilson administra-
Reed, who was reluctant to discuss
the matter, said the conference would
be "just a few men who want to talk
things over."
"At present," he said, "the whole
thing is rather nebulous. That is
why a few of us want to get together."

DETROIT, July 27.-(AP)-With#
Schoolboy Rowe hurling five-hit ball
for his eleventh victory of the sea-

the New York Yankees 9 to 1 in the
opening of the four-game series. The'
defeat reduced the Yanks' lead over
the idle second place Cleveland In-'
dians to nine games. .
Rowe had a shutout in. his grasp
until the eighth inning when Frankie
Crosetti hit over the left field fence,
for his eleventh home run of the sea-
son. The World Champions' ace
hurler previously had hit a homer
himself, however, scoring Ray Hay-
worth ahead of him for the first two
runs of the game in the third inning.
After Rowe's homer, the Tigers
added another tally and then were
held in check by Lefty Gomez, who
was lifted for a pinch hitter in the
seventh. Walter Brown followed the
southpaw on the mound but was un-
able to survive the frame as the Tig-
ers went on a rampage and scored six
Brown yielded three hits and
walked four batters before giving way
to Ted Kleinhans. Burns greeted
Kleinhans with a double, scoring
Hayworth and when Myril Hoag

Premier Jose Giral Pereira's ad-
ministration declared Alcazar fortress
at Toledo, south of Madrid, a rebel
stronghold for several days, had sur-
rendered to government troops, who
took control of the whole city.
Rebels Retreat
Revolters in the Guardarrama
mountains north of Madrid were
forced to retreat with heavy losses
before government troops and militia-
men, the government declared.
Half a dozen bloody engagements
were in progress in the south as loy-
alists pressed on Seville, Cordoba
and other points. Government forces
also were moving on Zaragoza in

The capital and central Spain
in general were firmly in the grasp of
the government, together with vir-

celona to Malaga and a strip along
the north central coast from Irun
to Santander.
Much of northern Spain was in
rebel hands along with some cities
in the south.
The loyal navy, the government
said, was in control in the Straits
of Gibraltar, preventing Gen. Fran-
cisco Franco from bringing rebels
from Spanish Morocco, where the re-
belliorr originated.
Life had returned to normal in
many agricultural districts, the ad-
ministration asserted, and farmers
were harvesting their crops. It was
said food supplies were assured in
Madrid, as rich farming land to the
south and east was guarded by loyal
Rebel Plan Impossible
Thus, the government claimed, a
rebel plan to "starve out Madrid"
could not be realized.
"Rebels find it impossible to move
their forces from one point to an-
other," the government declared, "as
loyal troops and citizens are ready
to seize them as soon as they leave
their strongholds."

said the Alcazar barracks and mili-
tary school surrendered before an at-
