Astronomic Divisions As
Natural Boundary
Lines Condemned
Praises Establishment Of
'Artificial' Line Between
United States, Canada
The complete superiority of the
scientific astronomical boundary line
over the so-called natural boundary
line was conclusively pointd out last
night by Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, chair-
man of the Univrsity political science
' "The world has come to realize
that the natural boundary is not
worth very much," he declared in the
second of a series of public lectures
which are a part of the program of
the annual Summer Session on
Teaching International Law. Profes-
sor Reeves, who is acting as dean of
this law parley, spoke on "Interna-
tional Boundaries."
In distinguishing between "as-
tronomical" and "natural" boundary
lines, the speaker pointed out that
the former are determined by longi-
tudinal"and latitudinal lines and are
accurate even to the fraction of an
Continuing his condemnation of,
the natural boundary, Professor
Reeves said that it may give one na-
tion a feeling of security and safety,
on the one hand, but it is just as
likely to bring about a feeling of fear
and insecurity in the neighboring
'artificial' boundary as been brought
to earth, and it has produced results
in international relations, particular-
ly with our neighbor on the North,
which are certainly to the advantage
of both the United States and Can
"That astronomical boundary be-
tween the United States and Canada
is a boundary that represents the
common interests of English-speak-
ing races of the Western Hemisphere,"
Professor Reeves said.
The 45-degree line to the St. Law-
rence River, .running between the
United States and Canada, is the
first recorded boundary line of lati-
tude which is to be found as a part
of any international boundary line,
according to Professor Reeves.
It resulted from the Quebec Act of
1774 which established a line betwen
the French Quebec colonies and the
English colonies, he said. Professor
Reeyes explained that this same divi-
sion was also used in detrmining that
particular boundary of the United
States when it became independent.

CLEVELAND, July'8.- (Special) -
For the third successivetime inas
many years, the picked stars of the
American League triumphed over
their National League rivals in the an-
nual All-Star game today. Before
more than 80,000 cheering fans in
Municipal Stadium here, the Amer-
ican Leaguers pounded out a 4 to 1
From the standpoint of thrills, all
honors went to the victors. Jimmy
Foxx, Philadelphia Athletics slugger,
lined a home run into the lower left
field stands with Lou Gehrig on base
in the first inning to put his team
into a lead which was never threat-
ened. "Lefty" Vernon Gomez, ace of
the New York Yankee's pitching staff,
hurled six innings of glorious base-
ball for the junior loop team in which
he allowed but one run and three

of the damage was done while Bill
Walker, southpaw star of the world's
champion Cardinals, was on the
mound. In addition to the two runs
which resulted from Foxx's smash he
was touched for another score in the
second inning when Catcher Rollie
Hemsley, of the St. Louis Browns,
tripled with one out and scored on
Joe Cronin's long fly-to Wally Berger.
The victors' final ru came in the
fifth when, after two were out, Joe
Vosmik and Charley Gehringer
singled, Gehrig walked to fill the
bases, and Foxx drove Vosmik home
with a base hit off Schumacher's
The National Leaguers showed their
only signs of life in the fourth when
Arky Vaughan, Pittsburgh shortstop,
led off with a crashing double to right
and later scored on a single by Bill
Terry, Giant manager who was at first
base for the Nationals.
Although Foxx was the outstand-
ing hiting star with his home run and
single in three times at bat, Geh-
ringer and Al Simmons, of the Chi-
cago White Sox, also distinguished
themselves with a double and single
apiece. The Tiger star also drew
a pass.

Post-War Fascism,

Features Analogous To
Those Of 18th Century
Tracing the post-war development
of fascism and communism upon a
background of the superimposed polit-
ical philosophies of socialism, democ-
racy and traditionalism or conserva-
tism of the feudal era, Prof. Roy Wood
Sellars of the philosophy department
yesterday addressed a near-capacity
audience in Natural Science Audito-
rium on "Rival Social Philosophies
of the Present."
Making no distinction between so-
cial and political philosophies, Pro-
fessor Sellars emphasized the con-
stantly changing nature of those ideas
as new situations bring new doctrines.
The period of the present was char-
acterized by him as one of unrest and
skepticism of existing institutions,
bringing the birth of new faiths and
new ideologies or social philosophies.
In that respect the present marks
a return to the situation at the middle
of the 18th century, he said, as need
for over-hauling has become appar-
ent. Not only is there an emergence
of new thoughts, but the re-emphasis
upon 18th century ideologies further
bears out the analogy between the
The historical picture, particularly
characterized by Europe, presents the
ancient feudal hierarchy of which the
dominant philosophy was a respect
for the legitimacy of old institutions,
Prof Sellars pointed out, a hier-
archy which was pushed aside by the
bourgeoise democracy in which the
dominant ideas were of parliamen-
tarism, a minimum of governmental
activity and of economic liberalism
or rugged individualism.
Such a system of democratic lib-
eralism was the expression of the
rights of the middle class, resulting
from its growth and importance, and
its aim the overthrow of the author-
itarian state of feudalism. Govern-
ment in such a state was "by the peo-
ple,' the people being identified in
the middle class.
With the domination of the middle
class there gradually came an as-
sertion of the proletariat from be-
neath, Prof. Sellars pointed out, a
development less important in the
United States than in Europe because
of the shifting of the American fron-

lands, July 8-(P) -Prediction was
made freely tonight that the concilia-
tion commission meeting here in an
effort to settle the Italo-Ethiopian
dispute would collapse tomorrow.
Its end was foreseen in the refusal
of the Italian members to hear wit-
nesses for Ethiopia.
At this afternoon's meeting it was
reported that an angry scene de-
veloped when Professor Jeze, legal ad-
visor to the Ethiopian government,
declared that Ualual, where the first
major frontier ,clash occured, was
Ethiopian territory.

WASHINGTON, July 8. -(WP)-It
takes a smart hurricane nowadays to
sneak up on American shores with-
out being caught in the act by wea-
ther bureau observers.
No less than 25,000 radio messages
sent during the hurricane season of
June to November inclusive keep the
weather men constantly in touch
with behavior of the "big winds.'
As a result no hurricane of serious
proportions can move far toward
American shores from its source in the
belt of equatorial calms or "doldrums"
without being spotted, says E. B. Cal-
vert, in charge of the weather bu-
reau's forecast division.
Ships Give Information
In the old days the weather bureau
depended entiriely on ships plying the
regular "beaten tracks" of the oceans
to send in weather information. This
left large areas in which a hurricane
might get a head start before being
Now all this is changed. The- wea-
ther bureau can get in touch with
ships in any part of the Atlantic or
Caribbean from which information is
especially desired. This is made pos-
sible by cooperation of vessel owners,
the Radiomarine corporation and the
Puerto Rico sugar company, which
maintains a powerful wireless station
on the island of Puerto Rico.

Grand Rapids under the direction of
Carl Wecker.
She participated in solo parts in
two May Festivals as well as various

Education To
'Re-Build' Now
Goal Of Prison
Prof. L. W. Keeler Tells
Of Progressive Change
At Jackson Prison
The story of voluntary education of
inmates, from the illiterate to the high "
school level, at the southern Michigan
prison at Jackson was related yester-
day by Prof. L. W. Keeler of the
School of Education. He spoke at the
afternoon conference of the School.
Commercial concerns hold a stead-
ily decreasing sway over the conduct,
of prison industries, and so prison ad-
ministrators are turning to educa-
tion in an attempt to keep the in-.
mates occupied, Professor Keeler stat-
ed. The growing concern for the "re-'
making" of prisoners has also stimn-
ulated the development of intra-pris-'
on education, the speaker said.
"The departments open within the-
prison school are the regular academic
courses, courses in industrial arts,;
agriculture, and commercial subjects,"
Professor Keeler pointed out. "The
organization of the school is very
much along the line of that in the
regular public school.
"The prison at Jackson has school:
quarters which were built as a part:
of the construction of the new prison.-
