He next suggested a slogan, "Every
teacher a good English teacher," for,
he said, every teacher is, at least in-
directly, some sort of a teacher of
English. "If he accepts slovenly read-
ing and slovenly reporting, he will be
a bad teacher," Professor Thorpe
The "fallacy" of expecting a student
to develop his mastery of English
when he is "in the English classroom
only one-fifth or one-sixth of the
school day" was questioned by the
speaker. He pointed out that most
subjects have a special technical vo-
cabulary which must first be learned,
and, even more important, that good
English practices are, above all, more
a matter of practice.
Professor Thorpe expressed his be-
lief that the important principle of
English is often forgotten in many
schools, and criticized the fashion of
making "the right and effective use
of language a habit only in the Eng-
lish classroom, and put off, like a
troublesome garment, once that room
is left behind"
The specific obligation of the Eng-
lish teacher, as Professor Thorpe
stated it, is to lead students to know
and appreciate good literature. He
mildly criticized the introduction into
English courses of books about civics
and industry, remarking that though
they may be valuable, they are not
calculated to lead to devotion to
Shakespeare, Thackeray, Galsworthy,
or any one of a thousand others.
Report Shows
Crime Record
Less For 1934
Decrease In Convictions,
Prosecutions For First
6 Months Seen By Rapp
According to a report issued by
Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp, a record
of 357 convictions were made of 399
persons held for criminal action dur-
ing 1934 to July 1.
Of the 42 not convicted, the report
shows, 10 were acquitted, seven nolle
prossed, four dismissed upon payment
of costs, and 21 dismissed upon pre-
liminary examination becaue of in-
sufficient evidence to warrant trial
in circuit court.
The summary for the first six
months of this year shows that both
the number of those held for criminal
action and convictions made has de-
creased over a like period for 1933.
At the latter time there were 393
convictions made out of 443 prosecu-
tions, a relative decrease of 36 con-
victions and 44 prosecutions, re-
In the report, Prosecutor Rapp ex-
plained that he has handled 3,970

cases of criminal action, since his
term of office began on Jan. 1, 1931.
Of these cases, he has obtained 3,520
convictions, according to the state-
ment made in the report.
Only one murder was listed among
the cases for this year's first six
months' period. The murderer, Wil-
liam Jasinski, is now "serving a life
term in Jackson State prison. Seven
others were sent to Jackson, one to
the Michigan Reformatory at Ionia,
and two to the Criminal Insane Hos-
pital, also at Ionia.

Focal Points Of General Strike In San Francisco

Everhardus Leading Halfbacks;
Wistert LosingIn All-Star Poll

--Associated Press Photo
This airview of San Francisco's waterfront, starting point of trouble which developed into a general
strike, shows several of the major spots which have figured in strike activity. Two were killed in outbreaks
near the ferry building. The Embarcadero has been the area where national guardsmen have concentrated
in efforts to prevent violence.

Herman Everhardus, the "Flying
Dutchman" of Michigan football,
leaped ahead in the voting for the
all-star grid team which is to meet
the Chicago Bears August 31 in com-
putations released yesterday by The
Chicago Tribune, which is conduct-
ing the poll with associated news-
Local fans may send selections of
an eleven-man team composed of 1934
graduates to The Daily or to the All-
Star Game Editor, The Chicago Trib-
une. The balloting closes July 25
and a contest to select a college coach
to direct the squad will be held later.
The all-star squad of 27 will go into
training at Northwestern University
August 15.
Everhardus went ahead of Nick Lu-
kats of Notre Dame and Beattie Fea-
thers of Tennessee in an overnight
gain of 5,500 votes, and now has
12,162 votes. Lukats has 11,995 and
Feathers 10,649.
Petoskey Gains
Ted Petoskey was another Wolver-
ine to gain, advancing in the voting
for end to third place, displacing Can-
rinus of St. Mary's. Smith of Wash-
ington advanced to first with 12,577
ahead of Skladany of Pittsburgh with
12,366. Petoskey has 11,342 votes
and Canrinus 8,255. Ed Manske of
Northwestern dropped to sixth place.
Whitey Wistert dropped a place in
the balloting for tackle, behind Moose
Krause of Notre Dame and Schwam-
mel of Oregon State. Wistert has
8,857 while Krause has an overwhelm-
ing lead of 17,776 and Schwammel
10,242. Jack Torrance, the Louisiana,
State track star, came up to follow
Wistert in the voting with 7,301 votes.
In the voting for center, Chuck
Bernard failed to keep apace with
the other leaders, but still maintaineda
a decided edge over his nearest com-
petitor, Gorman of Notre Dame. Ber-
nard has 12,873 and the Irish star
Sauer Is Ahead
Despite the fact that George Sauer
of Nebraska will probably be unable
to play because of an appendicitis
operation, the plunging Cornhusker
swept far ahead in the voting for
fullback and piled up a total vote
which leads all candidates for the
squad, 19,526.
In Los Angeles, Howard Jones, the
University of Southern California
grid coach, conducted a poll of his
students in summer coaching school,
and the results show only one Wol-
verine, Chuck Bernard, as, a leading
The coaches casting votes repre-
sent 13 states in the midwest, far-
west and Hawaii. Four midwest states
are represented.
The results of the Jones' poll fol-
lowed rather closely the general re-
sults of the nationwide poll. At the
ends Skladany, Smith and Canrinus

were closely bunched, and at tackle
Krause led Schwammel.
At the guards Rosenberg of South-
ern California and Corbus of Stan-
ford were heavy favorites in about
the same relation as they are favored
in the nationwide poll. In the na-
tionwide poll Rosenberg has 14,537
and Corbus 9,951 votes, although Bert
Schammel of Iowa has crept between
the two coast stars with 13,010.
Bernard led the centers in the
Jones' poll, and at halfback Herman
Everhardus trailed McNeish, South-
ern California, Feathers, and Lukats,
although all were bunched closely.
Sauer reasserted his popularity in
the coaches' poll, showing a big lead
over Mikulak of Oregon. Because
Sauer will not be able to play, coast
fans are suggesting one of A. A.
Stagg's products at the College of the
Pacific, Tom Wilson, as a halfback
One coast expert suggests that Ho-
mer Griffith of Southern California,
who is following Paul Pardonner of
Purdue and Joe Laws of Iowa in the
voting for quarterback, be shifted to
fullback. In that event Wilson, who
appears to be the outstanding passer
on the squad, might be played at a
halfback position, and Laws would
pilot the team.

Rodrian Will Speak To

'Cultivated' Relaxation Is
Proposed To End Nervousness

CHICAGO, July 18. - () - Relax,
urges Dr. Edmund Jacobson, Univer-
sity of Chicago physiologist. In the
same breath he asks, "Can you re-
Complete relaxation, as he sees it,
is something more than stretching
out in a chair or on a bed with some
muscles eased but other delicate
muscles still tense, to be tormeted by
theproblems of a busy day.
A person who is thoroughly re-
laxed is free from all muscular con-
tractions save those affected by the
self-actuating contractions of the
heart, says Dr. Jacobson. Even in
thinking and in most sensations man
experiences minute tensions in deli-
cate muscles are brought into play,
the physiologist finds.
Tension Causes Early Death
"It is physically impossible to be
nervous in any part of your body if
in that part you are completely re-
laxed," he says.
In the case of the business men,
Dr. Jacobson blames many early age
deaths-particularly those since 1929
-partly on a failure to relax.
"Unfortunately," he says, "when
the executive leaves his place of busi-
ness for the day his cares generally
go with him. Tensions which have
been present during the preceding
hours are likely to continue in the
background of his evening occupa-

a demand upon nervous energies com-
parable with that required for con-
centrated work."
In learning to relax, Dr. Jacobson
recommends a course requiring care-
ful thought and practice until one
acquires it as a habit.
The arms, legs, eyes, lips, and other
parts of the body must be free of
tension if relaxation is to be com-
plete, he says.
Beginners Should Go To Bed
The first step in learning to avoid
muscle tensions is to become con-
scious of where they occur. For be-
ginners Dr. Jacobson advises per.iods
of lying flat in bed with eyes closed
and mind free of thought.
Relaxation, he says, also can be
carried to one's daily work through
"differential" relaxing. The perform-
ances of dancers, singers, and athletes
depend upon absence of tension in the
parts of their bodies not directly in-
volved. Workers can learn to pre-
vent the overflow of tension from
muscles needed in the work to those
not needed.
"You can with care," says Dr. Ja-
cobson, "observe excess tension inI
daily life on all sides. Individuals can
readily be noted who gesticulate "4T-
necessarily, speak rapidly or with
shrill pitch, shift or turn about ex-
cessively, wrinkle their foreheads or
frown too often, move their eyes un-
duly or show other signs of over-j
activity or excitement."

Evelyn Cohen Talks On
Large Scale Costuming

whereby each actor was given a
number, and all his costumes were
placed in a large paper market bag
with a corresponding number. "For
the dress rehearsals our system
worked, Miss Cohen said, "but unfor-
tunatelY, the night before the pa-
geant, we had adhard rain, and the
paper bags were drenched. We had to
take everything out of them, dry the
costumes as best we could, and dis-
tribute them in a haphazard fashion.
Nevertheless, although our plans were
upset, we managed to put the pageant
on with the loss of only one of all
the 6,000 costumes."

tank on while you weren't watching,
and back you go to the beginning of
the line to find out.
The general procedure, as far as it
is visible, is that the steering wheel
and front bumpers are put on first,
with the gas-tank a close second.
Then follow the rear wheels, the gear
shift, brake lever, and motor block in
close succession. At this point begins
an interminable process of nuts, bolts,
wires, and weather-stripping.
Next comes the radiator shell, and
while the front fenders and running
board are clamped on, the radiator is
filled. Then come the front wheels,
the fancy V-front, the hood, the
horns, and headlight, and at last an
air-pressure pulley drops the bodies
into place, complete with rear fen-
ders, tail-lights, and spare carrier,
while the gas tank is filled, and after
final bolting and tightening, the car
drives away.
The trip was concluded by a sur-
vey of Ford's one and one-third miles
of, shipping docks, several acres of
obsolete machinery, and the cement
plant, rolling mill, and blast furnaces.
The party also stopped at the open
hearth furnaces, where over a hun-
dred tons of metal are kept molten
for the day's use, and at the casting
rooms, where piledriver dies stamp
out motor parts from red-hot blocks
of steel and aluminum.
