Sakanishi Speaks
In Session Lecture
The Japanese "haiku," a poem of
standardized meter and form, only 17
syllables long, was described by Dr.
Chio Sakanishi, Ph.D. '29, widely rec-
ognized critic, reviewer and transla-
tor of Japanese verse, as an extremely
simplified, and yet complete art form
in her Summer Session lecture yes-
terday in Natural Science Auditor-
Dr. Sakanishi, whose talk was spon-
sored by the Institute of Far Eastern
Studies, is the outstanding English
translator of modern Japanese poetry,
having three volumes to her credit,
Akiko Yosano's "Tangled Hair," Ta-
kuboku's "A Handful of Sand," and
Sachio Ito's "Songs of a Cowherd."
Quotes Haikus
To illustrate her discussion, Dr. Sa-
kanishi quoted several haikus from a
volume of both modern and former
Japanese poets which she is now en-
gaged in translating. The haiku, she
declared, dates from the seventh cen-
tury, and has been employed by
philosophers, tradesmen, and artisans
to express their though throughout
the centuries. "The Japanese," she
said, "have always felt a keen sym-
pathy for all living things, animals
and plants alike. They understand
nature deeply, and have infinite pa-
tience to watch the setting sun, or lie
for hours gazing at the rising moon."
Condensation Apparent
The power of condensation is ap-
parent to a high degree in the haiku,,
Dr. Sakanishi pointed out in noting'
the extreme brevity of the form. She
divided the haikus into three classes,
those dealing with animals, birds,
etc., those describing la.ndscapes, and
those having to do with human beings.
As a typical example of how the Jap-
anese poet expresses himself in these
short verses, she quoted:
"A leaf whirls down
Upon the breeze."
In this poem, she said, the poet, about
to die, compares himself to a falling,
In connection with the philosophyi
underlying Japanese poetry D. Sa-
kanishi spoke of the "worship of the;
relative," saying "relativity seeks ad-;
justment, and the man who adjusts;
himself well to his surroundings is
successful in life. Unless you can
open your mind to outside influences
and ideas, your life wil be incom-

Stresses Need
For Sanctions
Discusses Contributions Of
International Law To
World Peace
The present need of automatic
sanctions in the enforcement of peace
was stressed last night by Prof.
George G. Wilson in the public ad-
dress of the Summer Session of In-
ternational Law.
Professor Wilson expressed his con-
fidence in the peace functions of in-
ternational law as he traced its pro-
gress from the 1899 Hague Conference
up to the wide range of activities

which it is called on to regulate in
The many cases that were settled
by arbitration and pacific methods
during the first decade of the cen-
tury were cited by Professor Wilson
as he said that the world was just be-
ginning to look forward to a long
period of peace under international
"The German Chancellor on Aug.
4, 1914, definitely stated that he was
acting contrary to the dictates of in-
ternational law," Professor Wilson
said, "and the states entering the war
issued more than 50 declarations, thus
showing their respect for the con-
ventions adopted in 1907.
Following is a digest of Professor
Wilson's speech:
"Twentieth century international
law naturally dates from the first
peace conference, called by the Czar
of Russia and assembling at the

Boys In FairPlayf
The drone of carpenter's saws and1
recurrent blows of hammers have giv-
en way to shouts of 160 boys at Pat-
terson Lake as the University Fresh1
Air Camp starts its 17th season.
The 200-acre camp 25 miles from
Ann Arbor, resounds this week withj
yells and scraps of song from the
throats of boys, some of whom havet
never been off the street car line, and
at night they are coaxed to dreams in
a dozen roomy cabins by new phe-
This year about 320 fellows from 1
nine to 15 years old, many of whom
would not otherwise be able to afford
the pleasures of four weeks in the
open, will enjoy the camp in two1

According to George G. Alder,di-
rector, not only financially under-
privileged boys are sought, but those
socially undernourished as well. The
staff under Mr. Alder is composed of
University students and graduates.
Twenty experienced counselors are
provided to instruct the cabins in
swimming, handicraft, nature lore
and most important-square dealing.
One youngster from Platt decided
to walk out and leave the camp fiatI
last Thursday. It was all right-the'
eats, the swimming, the baseball and
the hikes, but he'd had enough. He
was going home. Above him in the
double-decker bed was a mattress
with a hole in it, and when the fellow
up there moved, straw filtered down
to cover his mate. He had stood itL
three nights, and was packing to
leave when persuaded by his counsel-
or to think twice. The flight was de-

chairman of the tea dances. Charlie
Zwick and several members of his
orchestra will furnish the music. The
dance is open to all students, both
men and women. k
Miss Bonisteel stated that hostesses
will be provided for dancing. There

Aims of the camp are better citi-a

Education Still
State Function,
Dcan Contends'
Federal Participation Wast
Foreseen In Constitution,
Edmonson Believes
In general it may be said that
American education is at present a
state rather than a federal function,
Dean James B. Edmonson yesterday
told the first day's session of the
League College--a two week confer-
ence supplementary to the National
Education Association, being held in
Ann Arbor this summer.
"The word education is not men-
tioned in the Constitution as adopted
in 1789," Dean Edmonson said, "al-
though the problem of education was
given consideration by the Constitu-
tional Convention. Some authorities
believe that the framers included im-
plied references to education in order
to warrant Federal participation at a
later time."
Dean Edmonson pointed out that
in the early years of the country it
was the policy of the government to
give land endowments and other fi-
nancial aid without attempting to
control specific educational policies.
The government has been gradually
increasing its stipulations by requir-
ing local appropriations to match

Whittemore To Talk
On English Gardens
Prof. Harlow E. Whittemore of the
landscape design department will de-
liver the next Summer Session lec-
ture at 5 p.m. today in Natural Sci-
ence Auditorium. His subject will
be "Four English Amateur Garden-
The four gardeners whose work
Professor Whittemore will discuss are
John Morant of Brockenhurst Park,
New Forest; William Robinson of
Gravetye Manor; Gertrude Jekyll of
Munstead Wood and Sir Frank Crisp
of Frier Park. Only the last-named
is still living, according to Professor
Whittemore, but all have had great
influence on gardening in England in
the last century and cosequently in
America. Miss Jekyll and Robinson
are the authors of a number of books
on gardening, he said. The gardens'
of all four are maintained today and
are open to visitors to England.

"Ethan Frome," a drama by Owen
and Donald Davis from the novel by
Edith Wharton, will be the second
ffering of the current summer sea-
on of the Repertory Players, opening
at 8:30 p.m. today in the Lydia Men
lelssohn Theatre. It will be repeated
Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the1
same time.
The play deals with the frustration
and tragedy of lives of three people
in the little New England town oft
stockfield. A notable success in New,
York during the past year, it is ex-_
pected to provide one of the highlights
of the Repertory season.
The title role will be played by
Ralph Bell, '37, supported by Claribel
Baird and Mary Pray in the feminine
leads. Miss Baird will portray Eth-
an's nagging hypochondriacal wife,
Zenobia, while Miss Pray will en-
act the ingenue role of the girl Mat-
tie. The tragedy will be directed by
Valentine B. Windt, Director of Play
One of the features of the pro-
duction will be the settings designed
by Alexander Wyckoff, art director.
Six separate sets have been construct-
ed to lend background and atmos-1
phere to the play. Costumes have
been prepared by Evelyn Cohen, di-
rector of costume designing.

A reception for foreign students of
the Summer Session will be held at

to be held at 8:15 p.m. Delegates to
the Conference of the International
Service Committees of Rotary are in-
vited to attend the symposium by
Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, counselor to
foreign students. The symposium will

Three hundred invitations have
been issued for the reception, ac-
cording to Profesor Nelson, includ-
ing all foreign students enrolled in the

Summer Session, those connected
with the Institute of Far Eastern
Studies,and other members of the,
"It is hoped," Professor Nelson said,
"that the symposium and reception
following will bring together in a
helpful way, three groups that should
have many interests in common-the
foreign students of the University,
members of the Institute of Far East-
ern Studies and representatives of
Rotary International."

Gomez And J. Dean
Scheduled To Pitch
WASHINGTON, July 6--(/P)---The
National Capital will take a baseball
holiday tomorrow, subject to possible
senatorial amendments, while the
major leagues put on their fifth an-
nual All-Star show for the benefit of
President Roosevelt and an expected
capacity crowd of nearly 32,000 fans.
Hand-picked by the rival pilots,
Bill Terry of the New York Giants,
and Joe McCarthy of the New York
Yankees, the opposing battle-lines,
drawn up definitely tonight, featured
an opening pitchers' duel between the
unpredictable Jerome Herman (Diz-
zy) Dean, ace right-hander of the St.
Louis Cardinals, and Vern (Goofy)
Gomez of the Yankees.
Capacity Crowd Assured
For the first time since the inter-
league "dream game" became a real-
ity at Chicago in 1933, the S.R.O.
sign will be out. Griffith Stadium,
includihg even the bleacher seats at
55 cents each, has been sold out in
advance. Standing room for 1,000
fans, at $1.10 each, will be sold short-
ly before the signal to play ball at
1:30 p.m. (Detroit Time).
The Nationals suffered a blow when
big Van Lingle Mungo, fireball right-
hander of the Brooklyn Dodgers,
came up with a sore back. Mungo
was Terry's original choice to share
the pitching job with Dean and Carl
Hubbell, the Giants' screwball mas-
ter, in three-inning hitches.
After failing in efforts to obtain
either Paul Derringer of the Cincin-
nati Reds or Lon Warneke of the
Cardinals as a replacement Terry
tonight decided to call on his star
young right-hander Clydell Castle-
man, as a replacement for Mungo, if
needed. Mungo planned to be on
hand anyway.

Bingham Assailed
By German Paper
BERLIN, July 6.---(P)--Germany's
official news agency distributed
throughout the Reich tonight a Ger-
man newspaper's editorial assailing
Robert W. Bingham, United States
Ambassador to London, for his speech
on despots yesterday.
The editorial, printed in the
Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, charged
that Bingham's speech at an Ameri-
can Independence Day observance in
London "incited the so-called democ-
racies against the so-called dictator-
ships in almost unbelievable fashion."
Bingham told the American So-
ciety in London that "despots have
forced America and Britain to un-
dertake rearmament and, having un-
dertaken it, we must necessarily win
the rearmament race."

The Summer Session broadcasts
which are produced by students in
the broadcasting speech courses

bott, will present many of the non-
resident lecturers on the Summer
School faculty.
First of these will be Dr. H.- C.
Hutchins, member of the staff of the
Educational Policies Commission of
the National Education Association,
who will speak on the significance
of America's Youth Problem. Dr.
Hutchins will be heard at three

The series will be opened on Mon-
day by a round table discussion of
the interest evidenced by teachers
and other professional people in
"Because of the university's posi-
tion and because they will be sus-
taining programs, we have a chance
to do some very valuable experiment-
ing," said Professor Abbott. "The
choral reading which will form part
of the Wednesday program is of that
type. Some very interesting effects
have been obtained through this kind
of interpretation."
Further programs will include a
news resume of events on the Mich-
igan campus and a dramatization of
Bret Harte's tale of the old West,
"The Outcasts of Poker Flat."
WASHINGTON, July 6.-({P)-A
"No Visitors" sign hung on Senator
George Norris's room in Naval Hos-
pital today to permit the white-
haired Nebraska Progressive to get "a
complete rest" before returning to his
legislative duties. Relatives said Nor-
ris, who suffered an intestinal dis-
turbance is "getting stronger daily."

Tense Senate

Some observers suggested that it
might be a move for an agreement
that would avert a filibuster. Whee-
ler, questioned by reporters, conceded
the discussion had dealt with the
court bill, but said the parliamentary
situation was unaffected by the con-
ference. He said he is still against
any increase of the Supreme Court.
The compromise calls for the ap-
pointment of an additional Supreme
Court justice for every incumbent
who continues to serve beyond the
age of 75 with such additional ap-
pointments limited to one each year.

WASHINGTON, July 6.-(;P)-The
Senate, excited and absorbed, began
debating the Administration's com-
promise Court Bill today with hard
feelings poorly hidden beneath a thin
veneer of good nature.
The give-and-take of parliamen-
tary discussion emphasized anew the
stout wedge that the court reorgan-
ization proposals and the conflict
over them have driven into the Dem-
ocratic membership.
Senator Robinson, the majority
leader, waggled a finger beneath the
nose of Senator Wheeler (Dem.,
Mont.), an opposition leader, and let
it be known that if a filibuster de-
velops, the Senate will be kept in
continuous session until it is broken.
He expressed hope that when the
measure has been "adequately de-
bated "those who are opposed to it
will yield without putting the Senate
to the vast inconvenience of long days
and long nights, in a test of physical

Rehabilitation Of Handicapped
Called Responsibility Of Society

Great is the responsibility of so-
ciety for the rehabilitation of indi-I
viduals who because of physical de-
fects have become out of tune with
society Prof. John H. Muyskens of the
phonetics department and director of
the Institute for Human Adjustments,
stated yesterday.
Purely selfish motives said Profes-
sor Muyskens decree that such people
be given aid toward correcting their
difficulties and in mingling with nor-
