Mussolini refused today to promise
not to go to war against Ethiopia but
British and French negotiators, de-
termined to explore every possibility
of peace, pushed ahead with "behind
the scenes" negotiations.
Premier Pierre Laval and Maxim
Litvinoff, Soviet commissar for for-
eign affairs, meeting last night, draft-
ed rough plans for peace. They en-
visaged: revival of the Italo-Ethiopian
conciliation commission; m u t u a 1
pledges of non-resort to war during
arbitration and conversations among
France, England and Italy, signatories
of the 1906 treaty guaranteeing Ethi-
Italy immediately objected. I Duce
said he did not want the clause in-
volving pledges against war. He did
not like linking of peace efforts to
the League Council, nor did he fancy
having Italians sit down at the coun-
cil table with Ethiopians as equals,
the latter on the grounds that Ethi-
opia did not sign the 1906 treaty.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. - () -
Tersely but emphatically, President
Roosevelt today voiced America's
hopes for maintenance of peace be-
tween Italy and Ethiopia.
He employed just 59 words in a
public appeal timed.to coincide with
friendly efforts of the League of Na-
tOtons to settle the war-clouded dis-
pute. Without departing from a neu-
tral position in the controversy, Mr.
"At this moment, when the Council
of the League of Nations is assembled
to consider ways for composing by
pacific means the differences that
have arisen between Italy and Ethi-
opia, I wish to voice the hope of the
people and the government of the
United States that an amicable solu-
tion will be found and that peace
will be maintained."
While merely a statement of this
government's ideals and not com-
municated officially to any other gov-
ernment, the President's move was
regarded as adding prestige to the
League's peace efforts at Geneva.

yesterday at the regular afternoon
conference of the School of Educa-
Selecting the eupedics instead of
character education to avoid the un-
desirable connotations that have at-
tached themselves to the latter, Pro-
fessor Trow pointed out that the
bases for an evaluation of education-
al processes from the eupedic view-
point would lie in the sciences which
are primarily concerned with the in-
dividual and social behavior of man.
Question Of Techniques
"If one were to survey a school or
a school system from the eupedic
angle," Professor Trow said, "his first
question would be, not: What tech-
niques are being tried out?, but, What
is the educational philosophy under-
lying the op'eration of the school, and

DETROIT, Aug. 1.--(Special) -
The Detroit Tigers pulled farther
away from both New York and Chi-
cago today, when Alvin Crowder and
Chief Hogsett pitched them to their
second victory in the three-game
series with the St. Louis Browns, 6-3.
Detroit plays Cleveland tomorrow.
Crowder shut out St. Louis until
the ninth inning. He had allowed
only four hits when Hornsby's men
staged an uprising that brought in
Hogsett and gave them their only
runs of the game.'
Two runs were scored by the Ben-
gals in each of the first, second, and
seventh innings, and the St. Louis
rally was the only threat to the lead
during the game.
Detroit opened its offense on three
St. Louis pitchers immediately. Fox
walked to open the first, and by the
time that White, Gehringer, and Gos-
lin had singled Van Atta had been
driven to the showers and Detroit had
Crowder personally accounted for
the two Bengal runs scored in the
second. After Hayworth had walked,
and Owen had reached first on an
error, the General tripled to deep cen-
ter field, scoring both runners.
There was no more scoring until
the seventh when Detroit scored twice
Besides Van Atta, Walkup and
Thomas pitched for the Browns, but
Van Atta was charged with the de-
feat. Crowder was the winning
Fourteen Detroit hits fattened sev-
eral batting averages, with Crowder's
triple being the most potent blow
of the game. Greenberg singled three
times, and Rogell, White, and Geh-
ringer twice. ,
The Cleveland Indians defeated
Chicago, 8-3, while New York and
Philadelphia were not scheduled. De-
troit is now three and one-half games
ahead of the Yankees and four and
one-half games ahead of the White

An investigation to determine the
soundness and healthfulness of the
children's surroundings would then
follow, the speaker declared, together
with a survey of the more elusive
eupedic factors, such as the emotion-
al life, intellectual and cultural level,
and disciplinary policies of the teach-
Consideration Of Agencies
The difficulty of the school work,
the pupil's attitude towards and lik-
ing for the teachers, teacher-parent
relationships, and variety of the cur-
riculum are other eupedic factors
which would have to be taken into
consideration, Professor Trow stated.
A consideration of the agencies us-
ually associated with a character ed-
ucation program-administrative de-
vices, home rooms, clubs, special
classes, playgrounds -should follow,
he said. How they may effect con-
duct and the best methods to be em-
ployed in their use should be studied,
the speaker declared.
"Like many another dominating
educational ideal, character educa.
tion is in danger of Necoming a fad-.
a magic hocus-pocus for the novices
and conscientious souls in the profes-
sion, and a subject of cackling mirth
for those outside who come upon it
unawares," Professor Trow declared
at the beginning of his talk.
A sound eupedic program to com-
bat this tendency to faddism, he
stated, should not only help an in-
dividual to meet present difficulties
which baffle him, but should likewise
assist in the continuing process of
integration and adjustment so that
his potentialities are realized so far
as may be, and a satisfying Weltan-

Editor Discusses Methods
Of Constructing Modern
Requires Work Of
By Decision Of Jury Of
By DAVID G. QUAIL
Discussions at the afternoon meet-
ing of the Michigan Council of
English Teachers, held yesterday:
were lead by Prof. Clarence Thorpe,
of the English department. A former
editor of Webster's New International
Dictionary, Dr. Thomas A. Knott,
spoke on "Building a Dictionary."
Professor Knott presented a kaleid-
oscopic view of the problems of build-
ing a modern dictionary.
Such a task requires the work of
many hundreds of specialists who are
engaged for years at a time in read-
ing new books to find new words, trac-
ing the etymology of new and old
words, making new and more accurate
definitions, and choosing the most
authoritative and carefully condensed
explanations, according to the speak-
Professor Knott said that pronun-
ciations are determined, not without
difficulty, by the decision of a large
and competent jury of experts. Be-
cause of the fact that extremely care-
ful distinctions must be made, it often
becomes necessary to use specially
constructed type. For type alone,
$300,000 were expended on the last
new International Dictionary.
Professor Knott, as well as being
editor-in-chief of the new Interna-
tional Dictionary, is editor of the
"Middle English Dictionary." He has
had experience' in every phase of
American education from elementary
school to university. He was also
an. experienced administrator and
executive in the military intelligence
division of the United States Army.
At 7:30 p.m. yesterday a discussion
of the problem of faulty articula-
tion between various units and the
possibilities of a more integrated
course in English from elementary
school through college. Both the
afternoonand evening discussions
were held in the library of the Uni-
versity Elementary School.

U' Forestry Camp
Students Have No
Fear Of Dynamite
BEECHWOOD, Mich., Aug. 1-
(Special) - "The boys" here at the
University Forestry camp, not content
merely with fighting off mosquitoes
and bears, are turning like "Sweet
pea" of the funny papers to playing
On Friday of last week, a Mr.
Matheson of the DuPont de Nemours
Co. came over to the camp to give a
demonstration of the correct use of
dynamite. Before his demonstration,
which lasted about four hours, he de-
livered a half hour lecture.
In his talk Mr. Matheson described
common types of dynamite and their
usage. He stressed the proper storage
of powder, especially since this has
much to contribute in getting the best
results possible from dynamite.
During the demonstration each of
"the boys" had an opportunity to take
a stick of dynamite and blast away
at his favorite stump or stone. The
foresters-to-be thus received practice
in boring holes, tamping, loading,
priming, and finally in setting off the
blast. Electric blasting machines
were used exclusively.
Several visitors were in camp over
the week end. Among them were

All phases of residence lighting
were discussed and illustrated yester-
day in the last Summer Session lec-
ture of the year by Prof. Henry H.
Higbie of the electrical engineering
Professor Higbie attributed the
many faulty lighting constructions in
existence to the fact that home-build-
ers do not seek out experts when the
plans for their homes are drawn.
He presented slides differentiating
between houses poorly illuminated
and houses illuminated with modern
appliances. The former reflected
brightly on polished surfaces and was
often the case 'of blindness, he said.
He highly recommended indirect
lighting, the most modern and health-
Professor Higbie suggested that
people make the most out of their
light resources. Shrubs should be
placed in a position in which they
would not interefere with sunlight, he
said, and Venetian blinds should be
used whenever possible.

home town relatives of Mandeville
Zenge, widely hunted for questioning
in the fatal mutilation of Dr. Walter
J. Bauer at Chicago, were convinced
tonight that the 26-year-old carpen-
ter was dead.
A suicide note signed "Mandeville"

Dr. Bauer's bride, was discovered in

CHICAGO, Aug. 1. - (A) - The
search for Mandeville Zenge, jilted
suitor sought for questioning in the
mutilation slaying of Dr. Walter J.
Bauer, was renewed Thursday night,
despite indications that he had leaped
to his death in Lake Michigan.
The hunt had been halted tem-
porarily after Zenge's bloodstained
coat and hat and a note announcing
his suicidal intentions had been de-
livered to authorities by a taxicab
chauffeur who had driven Zenge to
Navy Pier Wednesday night.
