Francis Compton, who is directing
the Repertory Players' presentation
of "The School for Scandal," is play-
ing the role of Sir Peter Teazle. Mr.
Compton is well-versed in the re-
quirements for making this a splendid
production, for it was in this vehicle
that he made his debut, playing the
part of Trip, and he has also ap-
peared in the play sever'al times
since that memorable date in his
The whole tone and temper of
"The School for Scandal" are inspired
by the disguest which Richard Brins-
ley Sheridan felt at the comments
made by the gossip-mongers at Bath
on the romantic and ridiculous inci-
dents of his elopement with Eliza-
beth Linley, and his duels with Cap-
tain Mathews.
Garrick, after reading the manu-
script, became genuinely enthusiastic,

and predicted for it a great success.
So impressed was he with the play
that he took a fatherly interest in
adapting it to the requirements of
production, and records show that he
held long consultations with the man-
ager about the cast.
The first performance of "The
School for Scandal" was a great
triumph. Even Horace Walpole, a
critic who was most difficult to please,
called it "a marvellous resurrection of
the stage." Historians of the theatre
claim that so perfect a combination
of talent has never been brought to-
gether on the English stage as was
seen that night in 1777 at the Drury
Lane Theatre. Garrick himself would
have played Sir Peter Teazle if he
had not already determined to re-
tire, and this being the case, the
part was delegated to the best of his
disciples, Mr. King. All of the actors;

Sixty-Five Make Trip To
General Motors Proving
Ground At Milford
Drivers Show Skill
On Speedway Drive
University Tourists Want
To Go On Return Trip;
ThoughtMeal Great
Eighty miles an hour, roaring
around the banked curve of the
speedway, and the driver lifts his
hands from the wheel and waves to a
pal who is wheeling a lumbering bus
around the base of the turn. And
that's only one of the thrills at the
General Motors Proving Ground, near
Milford, which members of the fifth
Summer Session excursion toured
Of course, no one from the excur-
sion was riding with the apparently
intrepid driver, for Proving Ground
visitors aren't permitted on test cars,
but it was still a thrill to see anyone
with nerve enough to drive 80 miles
an hour with hands off the wheel.
University excursionists had a field1
day yesterday. Leaving Ann ArborI
at 8 a.m., they arrived at the Prov-
ing Ground an hour later. Then thef
fuh began. Half the group went onc
the test trip, the others taking sight-
seeing buses around the 1,268-acre
expanse of outdoor laboratory, whereI
cars are tested 24 days a day.I
The ones on the test group first
participated in a roadability test. For. -
the comfort-loving among them, itt
would have been all right for that
particular test to last all day. It's
run very simply. The subject leansI
back against the softest of cushions,I

pression, the drivers wheel the carsI

Apparatus Is Sensitive I
The apparatus is sensitive: one girla

record looked as if the car had hit aI
The other group, which was to taket
the tests in the afternoon, spent thet
morning inspecting everything on theC
grounds, from the 3.8-mile speedway
to the shops where mechanics give a
car every conceivable kind of test.
The groups reunited at noon, and
then General Motors really camej.
through. A lunch was served which
nade most of the excursionists vow
o visit there often.
After lunch the groups reversed0
programs, and went through prac-
ically the same routine. That is, it 1
was new to the excursionists but rou-s
tine to the drivers. After all, theyt

;peedway at anywhere from 30 to 80
niles an hour, sometimes for more
han a 24-hour stretch, with three7
rivers shifting turns.1
It's on this type of test that their
eal danger comes. The car is, of

yesterday what happened to himt
when a cam rod broke when he was

"Well," he said, "I just grabbed thet

which I did the most, but we stopped."t
The drivers - and there are prob-I
ably a hundred or more connected

nother driver, "Knudsen stopped allr

Professor Assails
Professors For Ill
Usage Of Language

WASHINGTON, July 14. - (P) -
One professor has assailed some
other professors for, of all things,
their use of English.
Prof. R. O. Hughes, of Pittsburgh,
speaking before the National Educa-
tion Association, pleaded with sa-
vants to bring their language down
to earth. He lit into a recently pub-
lished report, signed by Dr. Ada
Comstock of Radcliffe, Dr. Charles
Beard and nine others which has been
nterpreted as meaning that the
United States is heading for planned
Hughes challenged some conclu-
sions, but what appeared to irk him
worst was the language. He called
it "completely over the heads of most
of us."
"I found one sentence that stretch-
es over 23 lines and another over 21,"
he said. "We, read sentence after
sentence and ask ourselves, 'what the
heck does this mean, anyway?'

Experts Insist
Major War Is
Unlikely Now

Gives War Views

A major war is a possibility, but
nothing more. Money with which to
fight a war is nowhere to be found.
Each government is 'watching its
neighbor like a hawk, but is directing
its principal effort to consolidating
its strength against opposition at
home. The possibility of major con-
flict is more remote than it was a
year ago.
That is the consensus among three
experts on international law who are
members of the faculty of the Sum-
mer Session on the Teaching of In-
ternational Law being conducted at
the University under sponsorship of
the Carnegie Endowment for Inter-
national Peace.,
The men are Dr. George Grafton
Wilson, professor of international law
at Harvard; Dr. Jesse S. Reeves, pro-
fessor of political science at Mich-
igan, and George A. Finch, manag-
ing editor of the American Journal
of International Law.
Two Others Silent
Two other members of the faculty,
Dr. James Brown Scott, secretary of
the Carnegie Endowment, and Dr.
Charles Cheney Hyde, Hamilton Fish
professor of international law at Co-
lumbia, who isretained by several
nations as counsel on questions in-
volving international law, have not
expressed opinions because their posi-
tions do not permit it.
The Far Eastern situation is en-
tirely different from that in Conti-
nental Europe, the experts hold, but
it is only a little more, if at all,
fraught with real-as differentiated
from imaginary - danger.
Japan's policy holds the key to
the situation, but Japan is proceed-
ing intelligently to carry out a plan
for world trade. She is not going
ahead on the impulse of any man-
iacal prejudice motivated by race
discrimination or religious fervor. She
has bristled once or twice in the last
year, but it is for what Prof. Reeves
terms "domestic consumption" for
the strengthening of the party in
power. Japan actually has the great-
est respect for world opinion.
Internal Troubles Are Check
Prof. Reeves believes that the in-
ternal troubles of nations alone are
sufficient to prevent their actually
carrying chips on their shoulders.
Such oratory as has been indulged
in is simply a display of showman-
ship intended to start flags waving
and strengthen support for those in
"Every country has so much in-
ternal trouble that the likelihood of
war is remote," Dr. Reeves says. "We
are living in the aftermath of the
war. There has been much breaking
down of governments. The existing
governments in some countries are
wobbly right now. The result is that
while each one is watching his neigh-
bor like a hawk, he is more concerned
with the settling of internal differ-
ences than with foreign difficulties.
"The methods being applied are
old and familiar. They involve the
consolidation of the party in power
and the ridding of all opposition by
means of an aggressive foreign policy,
a policy that will arouse the people
and bring about solid backing of the
government. Mussolini did it. We did
it at the start of the Civil War.

More than 100 faculty members,
laymen, and ministers in the local
churches were in attendance at the
first day's session of the Religious
Education Conference, which con-
vened yesterday in the Grand Rap-
ids Room of the Michigan: League.
From the opening speech of Dr.
Edward W. Blakeman at the morning
session, to the afternoon discussions,
the speakers were met with enthus-
iasm, and the discussions were en-
tered into whole-heartedly.
The morning session was perhaps
the most significant of the day, it
featuring, along with Dr. Blakeman's
opening address, a . speech by Dr.
Norman B. Richardson and a sur-
vey discussion by Prof. S. A. Courtis.
Dr. Richardson's address on "The
Aims and Direction of Worship" was
the highlight of the 1Q o'clock ses-
He discussed at length the prob-
lem of the use of different liturgies
in various churches, saying: "From
the standpoint of the worshiper, there
are two basic functions which the
liturgy of worship may perform. One
is to provide the means whereby in-
dividuals who come to church and
who are suffering from -mal-adjust-
ments with reference to themselves, to
their fellow men, or to the world in
which they live, nay find peace, par-
don, re-established confidence, re-

A paralyzing general strike, affecting
intimately the 1,000,000 residents of
San Francisco and Oakland, was or-

Representatives of the 105,000
workers voted the walkout in a des-

Howling down "conservative" ele-
ments in a zero hour meeting of huge
general strike committees represent-
ing the 65,000 union men of San
Francisco, the rank and file voted
overwhelmingly for the walkout.
Unions which had already voted to
strike were instructed to walk out
Monday. Those not having balloted
on the matter were ordered to take
strike votes immediately.
Like a flash the vote fired transbay
Union elements into action. The Ala-
meda county (Oakland) Building and

Trades Council voted simultaneous
strike of all its unions. Labor lead-
ers there announced the Central La-
bor Council would meet Monday night
and declare a general walkout for

Drowned In Huron River
Karl Kreuger, 20, an Ann Arbor
youth, was drowned in the Huron

Kreuger's body was dragged from
the river by sheriff's officers at 6:45
p.m., following a search of more than
seven hours.
The youth, whose birthday oc-

Hitler Lauded
By Nazis For
His Address
BERLIN, July 14.-() - Nazicraft
poured forth to the German public
today its praise of Adolf Hitler for
his Reichstag speech and gave a char-
acter of the world's approval.
All was praise for the Chancellor.
His address, testifying the violent
death of 77 persons in the "Roehm
Revolt," was lauded to the skies.
The identity of the dead, however,
unrevealed by Hitler, remained un-
published by the press, and a gov-
ernment spokesman said that official
list will never "see the light of day."
It was said that had Hitler chosen
to have it published, he would have
announced the names himself.
Special correspondents of German
papers in New York, London, Paris,
Warsaw, Rome, and other world cities
notified their newspapers in long
dispatches that all the world is at
least impressed and in most cases
approved of the Chancellor's word.
