SAmerican Davis
Cupmen Defeat
Wood Conquers Crawford,
Shields Beats McGrath;
Advance To Finals
WIMBLEDON, Eng., July 25. - (IP)
-Completing as glorious a comeback'
as ever was seen in the history of the
Davis Cup, Sidney B. Wood, Jr., and
Francis Xavier Shields today blasted
Australia's singles aces, Jack Craw-
fofO'and Vivian McGrath, off Win-
bledon's famous center court to carry
the United States into the challenge
round against England.
Wood, whose fighting heart must
be as big as a powder cask, first saved
the day by winning the fifth set of a
beautiful. two-day duel with Craw-
ford, to take the crucial fourth match
6-3, 9-7, 4-6, 4-6, 6-2, and tie the
series. at two matches all. Then
Shields, true to his promise, battered
McGrath into submission in three
terrific sets, 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. Thus the
final tally was 3 to 2 for the United
Wood opened the firing, he and
Crawford taking up where the rain
stopped them yesterday with Sidney
leading 6-3, 9-7, 15-love on his own
service. For the first two sets he did
not have the sparkle of yesterday and
the prospect was dark indeed as Jack
squared the match by winning the
third and fourth sets, 6-4, 6-4.
Wood was improving right along,
though, and when the fifth set opened
he was in full cry.
Winning points from Crawford was
like pulling teeth, the big Anzac play-
ing as well as he ever did, but Wood
matched him stroke for stroke in the
long rallies and then went to the net
behind his sharply angled forehand
and backhand drives to volley and
smash. One stirring rally saw at
least 20 exchanges, with Crawford
finally weakening to overdrive the
baseline by inches.

Analyzed In
Pedagogical Evaluating Of
Courses A Mistake, Says
English Authority
Misconceptions Of
Scholarship Cited
Worship Of Authority Is
Criticized By Professor
Of English
Defining his subject "Literary
Scholarship," Prof. Howard Mumford
Jones of the English department, who
spoke yesterday on a regular Summer
Session lecture, said that it was "a
passionate desire for truth accurately
The purpose of literary scholarship
is much better understood by students
of the Summer Session than by stu-
dents of the regular session, according
to Professor Jones, principally because
the bulk of the Summer Session at-
tendance is made up of teachers.
. Compares Sessions
The speaker humorously compared
the students of the two sessions saying
that "In the Summer Session students
take work while in the regular ses-
sion students go to college."
Despite the superior appreciation
for scholarship prevalent in the Sum-
mer Session there are still many mis-
conceptions on the subject, according
to Professor Jones. He named three
principle miisconceptions handed
dawn to him by members of his
classes in English.
As the first misconception, the
speaker said, "many teachers tend
to demand of their courses pedagogic
values and that no practical benefit
can be derived from literary scholar-
Of this, Professor Jones said that
it is not the business of scholarship
to make mere outlines for scondary
schools and that teachers will grow
better ny as raspthe mean-
ing of scholarship proportionately
Advocates Mastery
"The teacher who is a slave to a
textbook might as well be a phono-
graph, whereas the teacher who has
a real mastery of the subject has a
tremendous advantage."
The worship of authority was the
title Professor Jones gave to the sec-
ond misconception of literary scholar-
He cited an incident in his class-
room where a girl delivering a report
said as one of her points "Lewis' Bio-
graphical History of Philosophy is an
inferior book." Professor Jones askedI
the student where she derived such
information. Her reply was "from an
Further questioning gleaned the in-
formation that the authority was the
Cambridge History. Commenting on
this incident, Professor Jones said
"An authority is an authority only
so far as his information goes. It so
happens that the first volume of the
Cambridge History was written in
1907. Much new information has been
discovered since that time and views
have changed considerably."
The third misconception cited by,
Professor Jones was sentimental error.
He condemned the persons who scorn
studying a literary piece of work be-
cause they will be apt to lose the emo-
tional feeling of it if they are familiar
with the mechanics and history of
the work.

VIENNA, July 26 (Thursday) - (A.P.) - It was officially
stated this morning that no executions had taken place as the result
of the Nazi putsch which resulted in Dollfuss' death. Discussing

in Austria without a trial.
ROME, July 25. - (A.P.) - A statement emanating from

It was determined that while still a prisoner Minister Emil

After receiving such assurances, it was said he agreed to con-

Gorge Ride Of Niagara Falls
Tour Follows Water's Edge

Hobbs Sees Radi
As Possible C


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third
of a series of four articles on the Nia-
gara Falls excursion, to be made this
week-end under the direction of Pro-
fessor-emeritus William H. Hobbs. The
fourth and last will be run tomorrow.
It is suggested that those making the
trip clip these articles to useas a guide
during the trip).
Returning to the American shore of
the Niagara River by the Lewiston-
Queenston Bridge, the excursionists
will board the special cars of the
Niagara Gorge Railway, which runs
back to the Falls along the water's
As the cars run along the edge
of the Gorge, on the inside and above
them may be observed at close view
the layers of the sedimentary rock
strata, in order from the top, and
quite clearly defined, Lockport dolo-
mite, or magnesian limestone, Ro-

deep notch in the top of the cliff.
This gulch was cut by an arm of
the Niagara River which formerly
branched off above the present loca-
tion of the Falls, and rejoined the
river at this point. A deep cave in
the limestone near the top gives it its
name. The cave itself was formed
by an underground stream containing
acids which ate away the limestone.
The scene is known as "Bloody Run"
because of the famous Devil's Hole
Massacre of 1763 when a band of
Seneca Indians ambushed a company
of 100 British soldiers, and drove them
to their death over the cliff.
At this point, the first and sec-
ond stages of the Gorge have already
been passed. The first stage is a
channel 150 feet deep and 600 feet
wide, cut by water falling 300 feet
from the top of the cliff when the
Falls were first formed.

Excessive radio broadcasting may
well be the cause of the record-break-
ing drought and heat wave which has
already kiled 700 persons in the na-
tion, in the opinion of Professor-
emeritus William H Hobbs, nation-
ally-known authority on geology and
climatic conditions.
"Radio broadcasting," Professor
Hobbs said in an interview yesterday,
"releases an immense energy of a
vibratory character into the atmo-
sphere and may well prevent the
condensation of moisture."
Professor Hobbs retired from the
University faculty in June and was
granted the title of Professor-emeri-


He pointed out that in the last
few years the drought conditions have
been becoming worse corresponding
to the increase in the number and
strength of the radio stations.
"Meteorologists have considered
this explanation for the drought and
discredited it as insufficient," Pro-
fessor Hobbs stated, "but I do not
understand the basis for their cal-
"I am apprehensive of the effect
if such a drought should continue.

the taking of statistics was begun.

Future Clouded
The future of the country was
clouded, however. It did not appear
at once what the position of Prince
Ernst von Stahremberg, vice-chan-
cellor, will be.
The Prince, at first reported in
charge of the ministers, not captured
by the Nazis, later was found to be
in Venice. He was expected in Vienna
Whether the naming of Schussch-
nigg was a temporary affair was the
subject Of speculation. Von Stahrem-

a strong position.
