Americans Win Davis Defnds Old
From National 'eocacy Agai"s
T "-T New Bureaucracy

UNIVERSITY, Va., July 10. - (P) -
In a defense of an "Old Order" John
W. Davis warned tonight against the
death of representative democracy,
"by the slow strangulation of an en-
girdling bureaucracy."
If it must die, he said, "it would
die a nobler death in the lighting
and storm."
"Surely we have warrant to be-
lieve," the 1924 Democratic presiden-
tial candidate told the institute of
public affairs at the University of Vir-
ginia, "that within the framework
provided by the 'old order,' progress is
still possible, reforms are still prac-
ticable and recovery is still attain-
able."
"In the court of reason, in the
light of history, the burden of proof
rests wholly on those who would per-
suade us to the contrary."
The New York attorney said he
was speaking "neither for nor against
the New Deal in the present use of
.that alluring phrase. Under that title
good has been done, no doubt, which
no one would wish to undo."
"And I share the general admira-
tion evoked by the energy and driv-
ing power shown by President Roose-
velt," he continued.
32 Will Visit

4th Trip Today
Tour Will Be Repeated;
Proving Grounds Trip
Quota Filled
Thirty-two students will make the
trip to the Ford Plant at River Rouge
today with Professor Carl J. Coe, di-
rector of Summer Session excursions,
it was announced yesterday by the
office of the Summer Session, which
handles all reservations for excur-
sions. Only an exact busload is being1
taken on this excursion, as it will be
repeated Wednesday, July 18, for all
those who are unable to go today.
The party will meet at Angell Hall
at 12:45 p.m. today, and will be driven
to the Ford Motor company plant at
River Rouge where they will spend
two hours inspecting the huge indus-
trial center which houses on its 1,000
acresscomplete facilities for every
process of the many enterprises car-
ried on by the Ford Motor company.c
From the ore unloading dock wheret
raw ore is delivered for use in the1
steel mills, and the huge open hearth
furnace where old car bodies are baled1
and melted, to the final assembly linec
where in 45 minutes the thousands1
of small parts are bolted together into
an automobile which drives away un-
der its own power, the River Rouge
plant is a complete unit in itself.
It is considered an excellent ex-
ample of the Ford industrial tech-
nique of high specialization of labor,
the continuous conveyor-belt system,
standardized processing of materials,
the 30-hour week with its huge em-
ployment rolls of over 100,000 men atI
capacity output, and large scale pro-c
duction.
The party will return to Ann Ar-
bor at 5:30 p.m.l
It was announced by Professor Coe
that reservations for the trip to thec

Gives Speech
On ]Economics
Value Of Self-Sufficienc
Derogated In Eighth Of
Series Of Lectures
Advocates Adoption
Of Internationalism
Says Self-Sufficient Policy
Does Not Give Security
To Nation
The question of whether a country
should be self-sufficient or self-con-
tained economically or whether it
should be tied up in more or less in-
timate participation in world eco-
nomy, cannot be settled by deciding
the matter a priori, according to Prof.
Max S. Handman of the economics
department, who lectured yesterday
on "Can and Should America be Self-
Sufficient?"
"We are not confronted with coun-
tries starting on their economic ca-
reers without any previous commit-
ments or previous economic rela-
tions," stated Professor Handman.
"America in its economic life is so
intimately connected with world eco-
nomic activities that it is pure folly
to speak of our becoming self-suffi-
cient." '
Lists Exports
"In 1929," Professor Handman con-
tinued, "we exported 55 per cent of
cotton, 18 per cent of our wheat, 41
per cent of our tobacco, 34 per cent
of our kerosene, and between 10 and
15 percent of our manufactured prod-
ucts. Certainly this is not self-suffi-
ciency."
An economic life which is organ-
ized on that basis cannot easily be
disturbed without serious or even fatal
consequences, according to Professor
Handman. "Besides," he asked, "what
reason is there for disturbing it?
Our foolish investment procedure
should rather make us overhaul our
banking system than disorganize our
economic life."
"If we cannot settle the problem
in this way do we expect to solve
the farm problem by creating 40
millions of idle acres, or settle the
problems of an industrial surplus by
cutting off the possibility of selling
abroad that small increment of five
per cent which may mean the differ-
ence between success and failure in
business?"
There is of course, said Professor
Handman, the old argument that self-
sufficiency is necessary for purpose
of war, an argument which has been
proved worthless during the last war.
Derides Self-Sufficiency
"Self-sufficiency," according to
Professor Handman, "means hot-
house industries which endanger the
whole industrial technological struc-
ture and makes it less able to with-
stand attacks from without or dis-
organization from within."
Refuting the argument that self-
sufficiency is a promoter of peace,
Professor Handman said that he be-
lieves the opposite effect is produced,
that is a self-sufficiency policy results
in war rather than peace, because no
nation will feel sufficiently secure in
its self-sufficiency without wishing to'
acquire additional territory to guar-
antee that self-sufficiency.
"Fundamentally however," con-
cluded Professor Handman, America's
economic problems are not centered
around this question of self-suffi-
ciency or international division of la-
bor, but those centering around an
organization of production and dis-
tribution which will enable us to util-

ize our magnificent natural resources
and our great technical skill so as to
provide our entire population with a
decent and comfortable standard of
living."

Dr. Reeves Gives Speech.
On Social Work Being
Carried Out
The social and economic develop-
ment of the area affected by the im-
provement of the Tennesee River
basin, under the Tennessee Valley Au-
thority established by President
Roosevelt, was the basis of a discus-
sion yesterday morning before mem-
bers of the fifth annual Summer Edu-
cational Conference by Dr. Floyd W.
Reeves, director of personnel and so-
cial development of the Authority.
The speech was the first of a series
woven about the general topic, "Ap-
praisal and Re-adjustment in Educa-
tion," with which other addresses and
open discussions of the Conference
will deal.
The Tennessee Valley Authority,
one of the developments of the New
Deal, has as a major function the im-
provement of the Tennessee River
Basin, Dr. Reeves told his listeners.
The organization of the Authority
began with the first meeting of the
Board of Directors on June 16, 1933.
Since that time, work toward the ac-
complishment of the function for
which the Authority was created has
been progressing at a rapid rate.
Since the program is one of long-
time development, the manner of ap-
proach differs from that used for gen-
eral relief projects. As a first step, it is
necessary to determine the causes
underlying the present economic sit-
uation in the area and attempt to
correct these causes rather than to
provide immediate relief by artificial
means, Dr. Reeves explained.
After touching upon the general
developments of the projects, includ-
ing the construction of dams, the
work in soil erosion, and the produc-
tion of fertilizers in the district - as
well as the co-ordination of agricul-
ture and industry necessary to bring
about the full development of the
project - Dr. Reeves told of the so-
cial development work in the area
with which he has been connected.
The basis of the social development,
he stated, lies in Section 22 of the Act
which created the Authority. The sec-

Is To Discuss
Stage Today
Francis Compton To Talk
On 'Reminiscences On
The Art OfActing'
"Reminiscences On The Art Of
Acting" will be the subject of a lec-
ture to be given by Francis Compton,
guest director of the Michigan Reper-
tory Players, at 3 p.m. this afternoon
in the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre.
Mr. Compton, a member of a fam-'
ous English theatrical family, and
brother of Fay Compton, London ac-
treqs, has been connected with the
theatre since he was 18 years old,
when he went on the road with an
English stock company, playing Trip
in "The School for Scandal," which
he will direct next week for the Rep-
ertory Players.
Though he left the stage to enter
the English army at the outbreak of
the World War.. as soon as peace
came, he went back to acting. He has
toured three continents in stock com-
panies, and has appeared in several
New York successes, among them
"Serena Blandish," "Lady Deadlock,"'
and "Journey's End." He has also
played several seasons with Robert
Henderson in his dramatic festivals in'
Ann Arbor, Detroit, and Milwaukee.
Mr. Compton will be especially re-
membered by Ann Arbor audiences for
his performance as Macduff in Hen-
derson's production of "Macbeth" this
spring. The lecture will be open to
the public.
Republicans To
Advocate G.O.P.
'Brain Trust'
Social Insurance Plank Is'
Urged By Col. Roosevelt
For FallCampaign
CHICAGO, July 10. - (- The
Republican party may set up a "brain
trust" of its own, Henry P. Fletcher,
National Chairman, told young Re-
publicans meeting with campaign
managers to plan the fall offensive.
"I know our program must be pro-
gressive," Fletcher said, after Col.,
Theodore Roosevelt,bhere as head ofI
the New York Republican Club, had
proposed that the party take a stand
for social insurance - old age pen-1
sions and unemployment nemesis."
"We can't campaign on negatives,"
said Fletcher, "but we must workI
within the framework of the consti-I
tution. I am afraid that the coun-
try otherwise might have to pay for

security by working only as the gov-
ernment directs."
Declaring that he would take coun-
cil from the national leader to keep
Republican policies fresh and alive,
Fletcher said:
"If what we get is a brain trust, it
will be a brain trust."
Roosevelt directed a sharp attack
at the administration's program, call-
ing it "a colossal scheme to reach into
the affairs of every man in the com-
munity."
He foresaw - as a result of a pro-
gram "confessedly aimed at the re-
juvenation - a country "frozen into
classes, under the rule of an oligar-
chy."

Self-Predication That New
Form Of Control Would
Be Commission, Made
One-Man Bossism
Y Reign Would End
New Setup Entirely Up To
President, Johnson Says;
Urges Speed
WASHINGTON, July 10. () - An
end to one-man bossism of industry
under the Blue Eagle in favor of a
commission control, which may mean
his own retirement, was foreseen to-
day by NRA's chieftain, Hugh S.
Johnson.
"I have definitely recommended to
the President that NRA is not a one-
man job when it passes into the field
of administration," Johnson told re-
porters.
"I think that as we move into the
period of administration instead of
the pioneering work of setting up
codes, we need more balance in car-
rying out NRA. I do not think there
would be any change in its underly-
ing principle.
"As far as my recommendations are
concerned, whatever is done the Gov-
ernment must maintain a hand, a
veto power. There will be no organi-
cation I'll recommend that doesn't in-
elude that principle."
Proposes Board Or Commission
In place of his own single-handed
direction, Johnson has proposed to
the President a board or commission.
It would be non-partisan and John-
son thinks might best be compose4,
of people experienced in NRA. He
paid that his recommendations did
not embrace the Federal Trade Com-
mission nor the size of the new body.
"I'd like to see it set up as soon as
there is some coalesce'fice in the di-
verse codes, as soon as we get the basic
code out (for small industries) and a
few other things done," he said. "That
could be done in the next month or
two."
Johnson said the question of a new
setup was entirely up to the President
and that a commission could be
named by executive order.
Would Speed Setup
At his press conference, Johnson
said he would like to see this new ad-
ministrative agency, which was de-
scribed as.a board or commssion, "set
up as soon as there is some coales-
cence in diverse codes - as soon as we
get the basic code out and a few
other things done."
"I'll stay as long as the President
thinks he needs me," Johnson em-
phasized.
"I think if we move into a period of
administration instead of the pioneer-
ing work of setting up codes we'll need
more balance in carrying out NRA."
Johnson said he foresaw no change
and that he was opposed to sugges-
in the "underlying principles" of NRA
tions that a "council of code authori-
ties should run industry."
To Go To California
Johnson leaves by air tomorrow
afternoon to mak a speech on Thurs-
day, July 12, at Waterloo, Ia. He
will speak at Portland, Ore., on July
15 and then will go to the University
of California about July 19 to re-
ceive from Phi Beta Kappa, national
honorary scholastic fraternity.
He plans to speak at Los Angeles
June 20, take a two-week vacation in
the Sierra or Rocky Mountains, speak
at Chicago on his return trip, and get
back to the capital at about the time
President Roosevelt reaches the White
House.
