Fat men are noted for their good-
naturedness and may be loved by
everybody, but statistics revealed by
Dr. Walter B. Pillsbury, head of the
psychology department, who gave a
regular lecture on the Summer Ses-
sion series yesterday, proved that
these same fat men seldom carry.
off scholastic honors.
Speaking on "Bodily Types and
Mental Characteristics," Professor
Pillsbury presented figures gathered
from a study of various body types
in the University by students in
psychology which prove tha tthe Pyk-
nic or fat man type, is rarely as suc-
cessful in academic work as is the
athletic and asthenic types.r
Type Hard To Find
"In the first place," the eminent
psychologist said, "the pyknic type
is exceedingly hard to find, not only
in American universities, but in Eng-
lish and German as well." .
A check was made by students con-
ducting the survey of 100 students
in the class of '34 of the literary col-
lege, according to Professor Pillsbury,
and it was found that out of 19 pyk-
nics entering with this class, only 3
actually graduated. Out of 20 asthen-
ics entered in the class, 15 of them
remained the full four years as did the
same number included in the athletic
body type group.
"The supposition that the students
who dropped out were students of low
grades was also confirmed by the
count," the speaker said. "In the tirst
19 of the pyknic group, it was sawd
that 16 dropped. Of these, 10' had
fewer honor points than hours credit,
while 6 had an equal or greater num-
ratio Enlightening
The ratio of people who drop out
to -people who stay, in the pyknic
group as compared with the average,
is enlightening in itself," he said. It
shows very clearly a relative lack of
ability in the pyknic that is somewhat
startling. The large proportion: drop-
ping out who have failed to make re-
quired honor points indicates lack of
ability, while the number who drop
out with satisfactory records might be
interpreted as an indication of lack
of initiative or pwsistence in.the work
they have undertaken."

Total deaths since the mercury
started stratosphering about July 1
mounted to 45 yesterday. An unof-
ficial tabulation by states showed:
Oklahoma 10, Texas 9, Kansas 7,
Missouri 5, Nebraska 5, Minnesota 4,
Arkansas 3, Iowa and Illinois, 1 each.
In addition 12 persons have

The entire House membership was

New German Department
Head Arrives For Visit

Student Drowns At
Biological Station
Harrison B. Welshouse, 21 years old,
a graduate student at the University
of Michigan's summer biological sta-
tion at Douglas Lake in northern
Michigan, was drowned Wednesday
afternoon, it was learned at the Sum-
mer Session office yesterday.
"Velshouse became exhausted while
swimming off-shore and before aid
could reach him he went under. The
body was later recovered.
According to reports made by Dr.
George R. LaRue of the University
zoology department, who is head of
the biological station, Welshouse
swam beyond his depth in the lake
and became exhausted. The body will
be shipped to his home.
It was the first drowning that any
of the University stations have ex-
perienced in many years.
Major League Standings

Professor Pillsbury also discussed
other theories of the relation of body
types to mental characteristics, among
which were those of Kretschmer, the
great German psychologist, and Gall.
Another theory of the relation of
body types to mental characteristics
is the division of individuals into in-
troverts and extroverts, according to
the speaker.
"The introverted individuals are
those who have a tendency to think
much of their own feelings and opin-
ions," he said, "while the extroverted
individuals are those who look to the
world about and to other people."
He then presented several questions.
which some psychologists utilize to de,
termine introverts and extroverts.
Some of these were:
"Do you keep a diary?" If you do
according to the test you show symp-
toms of introversion. "Do you express
yourself better in speech than in writ-
ing?" Answer yes and you are an
extrovert. And lastly, "Are you in-
clined to keep in the background at
social occasions?" If answered affirm-
atively you are an introvert.

'Soak Rich' Tax
Says Destroying 'Business
Bigness' Will Not Balance
Budget In Letter
NEW YORK, July 11.-(P)-Al-
fred P. Sloan, Jr., president of Gen-'
eral Motors Corp., in a letter to stock-
holders, today launched an attack on
the proposed corporation income tax
"The question involved to which I
am calling your attention"he wrote,
"is not primarily that the soak the
rich' plan will or will not provide the
additional revenue needed to support
the financial operations of the gov-
ernment, but that it is a direct at-
tempt to curtail and eventually de-
stroy 'business bigness' just because it
is big, without adequate consideration
and intelligent discussion.
"Sooner or later it must be recog-
nized by all that the tremendous gov-
ernment expenditures of yesterday,
today and tomorrow, must be met by
increased taxation. '
"Destroying 'business bigness' or
'soaking the rich' will not balance the'
"The amount required is far too big.
These particular resources are far too
small. Everyone must, of necessity,
pay and everyone will pay - con-
sciously or not."
Sloan raised the question whether
the rich would really be soaked, and
he declared that of the 415,000 stock-
holders in the motors corporation
150,000 represented amounts of ten
shares or less.

After Operation
ROCHESTER, Minn:, July 11. - (')
-Physicians said Senator James
Couzens of Michigan was in good

Members of the Couzens family,
including Mayor Frank Couzens of
Detroit, were at the hospital today,
Dr. Waltman Walters performed
the operation with a local anesthetic,
and Senator Couzens carried on a
conversation throughout.
"We regard the operation as a suc-

cess," attending physicians said. "His
condition is very satisfactory."
The senator will remain at Colo-

Relief Pitcher Drives In
Winning Run; Rowe Is
Driven From Mound
WASHINGTON, July 11. - (Spec-
ial) Although outhit, 14 to 7, the De-
troit Tigers came from behind late
in yesterday's game at Washington
to defeat the Senators, 7-6, in 11
innings. New York remained a game
and a half ahead of Detroit, defeat-
ing Cleveland,8-I.
Elon Hogsett, relief pitcher, drove
in the winning run.
Detroit jumped off to a 4-0 lead
over Washington, only to see it van-
ish before a six-run Washington blast
in the fourth. Schoolboy Rowe, Tiger
starting pitcher, weathered this storm
but was removed in the eighth inning
as Washington again threatened.
Hitting Streak Ends
The hitting streak which Pete Fox
had run up to 29 consecutive games
was broken today. Against three
Washington pitchers Fox went hit-
less in four times at bat.
.Gehringer's home run in the first
inning sent Detroit off to a good
start, and largely because of a home
run and triples by Goose Goslin, the
Tigers had four runs after the
fourth inning and Washington was

Commerce Hits
Tax-Rich Plan
As Destructive
Business, Industry Flay
Program iSenate Debate
Waxes Sarcastic
WASHINGTON, July 11- () -
Business and industry, as represented
by the Chamber of Commerce of the
United States, today unleashed a
furious and long-forecast assault on
the President's tax program.
It described the plan as destructive,
qonfiscatory, and as a "perversion" of
the taxing power of the FederalGov-
ernment. .
Simultaneously, sarcastic debate
broke out in the Senate for and
against the President's idea of bring-.
ing a "wider distribution of wealth"
by putting stiff taxes on inheritances,
increasing those on gifts and "very
great" individual incomes, and mak-
ing big corporations pay proportion-
ately more than smaller ones.
Also, there were indications of

deep-set differences on whether the
bill - not yet drafted, but estimated
to raise anywhere from $118,000,000
to $901,500,000 a year - should be
slapped through the House under a
"gag" forbidding amendments.

Britain Takes
Italy To Task
After Threats
Foreign Secretary Admits
Needs For Expansion
But Questions Tactics
LONDON, July 11.--(A') - A tense
House of Commons today heard Sir
Samuel Hoare, foreign secretary,
question the validity of Italy's rea-
sons for attacking Ethiopia.
"We admit the need fo; Italian ex-
pansion,a S'ir .amuel 'said, "We ad
mit again the justice of some criticism
that has been made against the Ethi-
opian Government. But arethe facts
of Italy's needs and the complaints
made against the Ethiopian Govern-
ment sufficient cause for plunging in-
to war?"
Pledging Britain's continued effort
for peace, the Foreign Secretary
pleaded for Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hit-
ler's co-operation in pacifying turbu-
lent central and eastern Europe
through the negotiation of Eastern
and Danubian pacts.
It was Sir Samuel's maiden speech
before the Commons as Foreign Sec-
retary, and packed galleries, seating
diplomats of Italy and many othe
nations, heard him review Britain's
efforts to settle Italo-Ethiopian dif-
ferences, defend them as necessary
in view of the effect war would have
on' collective peace systems and ad-
vise, by indirection, Anglo-American
co-operation in world affairs.
He promised England would not
abandon "any reasonable chance
which may offer itself for helping
prevent a disastrous war," although
he denied rumors that France had
been asked to help blockade Italy o
that Britain was preparing "some
isolated form of coercion."
The Foreign Secretary lashed out
at "wild statements" in the Italian
press questioning the motives of
Britain's peace efforts, asserting
Britain had only' "the motives o
peaceful settlement" and declaring
"statements that we are thinking of
our colonial interests or massing
troops in the neighboring British
colonies are completely devoid of
foundation.' ;
Stagg Says Radical

Dr. Rankin's Topic
Urges A Procedure Based
On Child's Experience
And Needs
Words of praise for our educational
system as compared with those of
European countries and a strong ad-
monition to educators to resist any
encroachment on their freedom of
thought 'and expression, closed the
final meeting of the Sixth Annual
Summer Educational 'Conference,
held yesterday at the Union.
They were the words of Prof. Pres-
ton W. Slosson of the history depart-
ment, who spoke on "From the View-
point of Recent Developments in ur-
ope,' What is Likely to be the Future
of American Education."
Professor Slosson stated that "Ed-
ucation may be good or evil;'if it
degenerates into indoctrination the
more efficient it is the worse It is,"
he said.
Have More Education
"Russia and Germany, he con-
tinued, have more education per
square inch than any other place in
the world, but they have nothing to
teach us excepting what to avoid.
These countries, under dictators, have
combined church, state, school, radi,
newspapers and movies into one huge
propaganda plant and the result Is
tdat'thei pe6p1k"'re turned out a
mere automatons."
'"It is the freedom and expression of
thought in our schools which make
them superior to the superb educa-
tional systems found in the countries
of Europe under dictatorships andt
this freedom, Professor Slosson em-
phatically declared, must be pre-
served." He called upon the educat-
ors to "oppose by every means pos'-
sible the slightest infringement on
their fredom to investigate the truth
and express it as they find it, and
the freedom of the students to dis-
cuss it with them."
Approximate Each Other
Speaking of the educational sys-
tems of the "free" countries of Eur-
ope, Professor Slosson stated that
these and the educational systems of
the United States would tend to ap-
proximate each other. They 'would
continue to influence each other as
they have in the past, witnessed by
the fact that we have borrowed hon-
or courses, comprehensive examina-
tions, the tutorial system, and inde-
pendent courses of study from Oxford
and Cambridge, and European schools
have adopted our coeducational sys-
tem, lecture system, and seminars,
the speaker stated.
Our graduate schools, Professor
Slosson finds, have risen to the level
of any European graduate school and
in the future may pass beyond them.
He believes that the amount of pure
research work done in these schools
will increase tremendously because
the European schools, which have
been carrying the burden of this, are
no longer financially able to do so.
Rankin Speaks
Dr. Paul T. Rankin, supervising di-
rector of instruction in the Detroit
Public School system, preceded Pro-
fessor Slosson and spoke on the
topic "What is Likely to be the Fu-
ture Trend in Instructional Proced-
ure?" Dr. Rankin urged a modifica-
tion of procedure "in the direction of
a better understanding of children
and a better understanding of their
needs." He did not think that there
would be any great change in present
procedure as far as direction is con-
cerned, but that there would be a

shifting of emphases.
Keeping in mind the need for so-
cial con'sciousness, social awareness,
and better citizenship in the final
product of the schools. Dr. Rankin
