Corbett Says
Must Cease
National Sovereignty Not
In Harmony With World
Conditions,_He Claims
Blames Lawyers
For Conditions
The doctrine of absolute national
supremacy must be abandoned and
human authority outside of and
above the state must be recognized
if the world is ever to enjoy an in-
ternational peace, Dr. Perby E. Cor-
bett of McGill University told his
audience last night in delivering the
second public lecture sponsored by
the Summer Institute of Interna-
tional Law.
Speaking on the topic "The Part
of the Lawyer in the Evolution of the
International Community," Dr. Cor-
bett -pointed out that absolute na-
tional sovereignty is out of harmony
with the facts of contemporary life.
Nation-states are not and cannot be
the last centers of human authority,
he said, and because this simple fact
has not been sufficiently recognized
the world is suffering as it is trying
to live without a firm rule of law,
though it pays constant lip-service to
inter-dependene it constantly vio-
lates the essential principles of com-
Plan Of Reason Needed
There can be no possible peace
until it adopts a plan of conduct ef-
fectively regulatedbyreason, and
proof against the unpredictable dis-
tortions of national emotions."
Upon the shoulders of the lawyer
Corbett placed a large part of the
unsatisfactory state of affairs now
existent, because, he said, it is the
lawyer who advised the foreign of-
fices, who is a member of the legis-
lature, who is the cabinet ministerj
who sits in arbitrial tribunals and in-
ternational commissions; it is the
lawyer acting in all of' these capa-
cities who has encouraged the abso-
lute dominance of the national state
to the consequent destruction of in-
ternational ideals.
International Community Greatest'
Among the early jurists'of the 16th
and 17th century there was a definite
dominance of the idea of an inter-+
national community, Dr. Corbett said,
but gradually there was a swing away
from this teaching until by the 19th1
century international law was a
meagre, unstable collection of rules;
invoked by or respected by the na-
tions at their own pleasure.i
Against this 19th century national-
ism there has been "a great reaction
of the theorists of our day," led by+
Kelsen, Verdross and Kunz of the
Austrian school-a reaction which
bids well to establish the will of the
international community as the su-
preme law, he concluded.

Battle Near Madrid
MADRID, July 12.-(P)-Spanish
Government forces, consolidating
their 100-square-mile bite into the
insurgent front west of Madrid,
fought today with their great fleet
of aerial bombers.
The planes droned over the battle-
fields to subject insurgents to the
heaviest air raid of the year-long
Insurgent air forces retaliated with
attacks upon the Brunete-Quijorna
sector-outposts of the government's
new drive intended to raise the siege
of Madrid. The offensive,.now in its
eleventh day, has pushed Generalissi
mo Francisco Franco's insurgent line
back northwest of Madrid but left
the besiegers still at the capital's
southern gates.
The insurgent forces, swinging re-
inforcements down from the north
where its attack had centered upon
Santander, fought the government
drive bitterly. Insurgent official
sources agreed, however, that battle

Bullard Gives
Lecture About
Niagara Falls
American Falls Eventually
Will Be Extinct, Well
Known Geologist Says
Receding Of Waters
Will Cause Change
The constant recession of the
Horseshoe Falls will eventualy re-
sult in the monopolization of the
waters on the Canadian side to the
exclusion of the American Falls, Prof.
Fred M.' Bullard of the geology de-
partment said in his lecture on "The
Geology of Niagara Falls" yesterday
in Natural Science Auditorium.
The extinction of the American
Falls, separated from the Canadian,
or Horseshoe Falls, by Goat Island,
will not take place in less than a
thousand years, however, Professor
Bullard stated,. A striking analogy
to the present situation and one
which points out the future history
of the Falls lies in the story of the
Wintergreen Flats, some distance up-
stream, originally the scene of a falls
divided by an island similar to the
present Goat Island. One of the
segments gradually wore beck until
it reached the head of the former
island, whereupon the waters left
the other segment and the stream
was united in the deeper course.
Records Tell Of Falls
The first record of the Falls in ex-
istence, according to Professor Bul-
lard, is the account written by the
French explorer-priest, Father Hen-
nepin, in 1698. The name derives
from the Indian tribe, which was
conquered by the more powerful Iro-
quois, he said.
"The scientist sees the Falls as
one link in a great chain of events,"
Professor Bullard declared. "There
are several ways in which a falls
may originate. It may be the result
of a glacier deepening the valley of a
river, like the Yosemite Falls in Cal-
ifornia, or the action of volcanic lava,
as in the Victoria Falls in South Af-
rica. Most, however, including the
Niagara ,are due to the sedimentary
layers in the earth's crust." These
layers, he continued, are alternately
hard and soft, and the complete
wearing away of a soft layer by the
stream causes a falls.
Originally Five Separate Falls
In the beginning there were five
separate falls of the Niagara River,
the lecturer stated, but eventually
that at Lewiston gained control of
the waters and left the others dry.
The present escarpment has now re-
ceded seven miles over a period of
about 25,000 years; at first at a rate
of 3.7 feet per year, reduced since
1906 to 2.6 feet per year because of
the amount of water used by the pow-
er companies above the falls.
The final retreat of the glacier
which caused the Great Lakes left a
shallow lake about 50 miles long,
Lake Tonawanda, at the Falls site,
now merely a shelf devoid of water.
The Niagara stream itself is perfectly
clear, Professor Bullard said, the wa-

Senate Drones
On In Debate
Over Tribunal
Bailey Climaxes Turbulent
Day With Assertion That
Bill Is Unconstitutional
Court Compromise
WASHINGTON, July 12.-()-
Senator Bailey, (Dem., N.C.) cli-
naxed a turbulent day of Senate de-
)ate on the court reorganization bill
;oday with an assertion that the
measure is clearly unconstitutional.
Before a crowded Senate, taut with
the strife the measure has provoked,
he shouted that the purpose of the
bill is "to control the decisions of
the Supreme Court," an objective
'for which there is no sanction in
the Constitution.
Charges Ignorance Of Bill
The North Carolinian spoke after
Senator O'Mahoney, (Dem., Wyo.),
former Democratic National Com-
mitteeman, charged administration
leaders with ignorance of the bill
they are espousing. He also accused
them of imposing "gag rule" on the
Senate and denounced the measure
as centralizing control over the ad-
ministration of justice.
Both speakers delivered their ad-
dresses between intermittent out-
breaks of the parliamentary sharp-
shooting that has dominated the dis-
cussion ever since Senator Robin-
son (Dem., Ark.), the majority lead-
er, invoked rules used only to com-
bat actual or threatened filibusters.
Both speakers delivered their ad-
the opposition denied responsibility
for the fact that since these rules
were applied, other business, notably
a war department appropriation bill
and the administration farm bill,
has piled up awaiting settlement of
the court squabble.
Farm Bill Awaits
Proponents pointed to the fact
that opposition senators blocked the
introduction of the farm bill today.
The opposition replied the bill can
be introduced any time the Admin-'
istration forces choose to relax their
drastic rules.
Senator Wheeler (Dem., Mont.)
charged the farm bill was brought
in to put the foes of the court bill on
"the spot" by making it appear they
are blocking farm legislation.
Soon afterward, President Roose-
velt sent a message to Capitol Hill
saying it is vitally important to the
nation that the farm legislation be
passed at this session.

Summer Session Activities
Of Duetscher Verein Are
The summer activities of Deutscher
Verein, student organ of the German
department, were opened last night
at the League by Prof. Henry W.
Nordmeyer, head of the German de-
partment, in an address of welcome to
the club.
Following Professor Nordmeyer's
speech the German Glee Club, under
the direction of Prof. Philip Dia-
mond, rendered three selections:
"Der Lindenbaum," 'Freuet euch des
Labens," and "Ach Wie ists Moglish

Vernon B. Kellet then sang two
vocal solos: "Vorborgenheit," by
Wolf, and "Auf Geheimen Waldesp-
fade" by Griffes.
Dr. Hugo Broecker of the Univer-
sity of Berlin led the group singing,j
accompanied by Otto Graf of the
German department.
At a recent meeting of the enter-
tainment committee of Deutscher
Verein, Arthur H. Grossman, '28, of
the University of Tennessee, was
chosen to direct the entertainment
activities for the summer and Paul

Hopes Fading

Navy officials directing the
search in the Southern Pacific off
Howland Island for the lost Amelia
Earhart and her navigator, Fred
Noonan, yesterday expressed little
hope the pair would be found.
Eight days have elapsed since
their disappearance July 2. The
picture above is the last picture of
the flier and her navigator re-
ceived by George Palmer Putnam,
her husband, and was taken during
the stop at Caripito, Venezuela.

The lookouts scanned the sea on all
sides, hoping for some trace of the

in a vain attempt to reach Howland
The 63 planes and 126 fliers were
ready for take-offs, tentatively
scheduled to start at dawn tomorrow.
Hope was at its lowest ebb, but the
Lexington's crew intended to do
everything possible to find Miss Ear-
hart and Noonan.
The battleship Colorado which
catapulted planes over the Phoenix
Islands for four days, headed back
to Honolulu today.
The Lexington did not overlook
the possibility that the world-circ-
ling Earhart plane still might be
afloat, although technicians and
friends of the missing fliers days
ago concluded the main prospect of
rescue lay in the chance that the
fliers landed on an island or a coral
reef. No plane ever has been known
to float more than nine and a half
The 63 planes were deemed cap-
able of covering 60,000 square miles
