Faculty Man's
Son Is Killed
Under Wheels
Of Automobile
Jose Albaladejo Hit By Car
When Tossed From Bike
By Swinging Door
Inquest Is Planned
For 8 P.M. Friday
A freak accident at 5:30 p.m. yes-
terday became Ann Arbor's first traf-
fic fatality of the year, when Jose
Albaladejo, 9-year-old son of Prof.
Jose M. Albaladejo of the Spanish
department, died on his way to the
hospital, of injuries received when he
W'as catapulted from his bicycle un-
der the wheels of an on coming car in
the 1200 block on Packard Street,
near the intersection of Wells Street.
Thrown To Pavement
The boy, riding toward town on
Packard, rode headlong into the open
door of a parked car and was thrown
over the handlebars of his bicycle to
the pavement, where both right
wheels of a car which was following
him passed over his body.
According to Jesse S. Tomlinson,
47 years old, of 1310 Dixboro Rd., he
had just parked across from the
Kroger store on Packard, and had
opened the door, putting one leg out,
when Albaladejo crashed against the
opened door from behind him.
The car which followed him, driven
by Mrs. William M. Couper, 28 years
old, of 1604 Ferndale Ave., passed
over the boys prone figure before it
could stop. According to witnesses,
Albaladejo got up, ran more than
100 feet toward his home a few
blocks away, and then collapsed.
Dead On Admission
A bystander, Horace Robinson, of
1209 Packard St., took the boy to the,
hospital in his car, but he was pro-
nounced dead on admission.
Coroner Edwin C. Ganzhorn an-
hounced last night that an inquest
would be held at 8 p.m. Friday in the
County Court House to determine
whether there was any negligence.
The fatality was the first since
September, 1936, in the city of Ann
Arbor. Last year's traffic deaths in
town totalled 11, six of .them in the
month of July, according to Officer
George Camp, record clerk for the
Police Department. Both drivers
were released after questioning at
the Police Station.
Sapir To Give
Linguistic Talk
At Union Today
"Are linguists studying speech?"
This question will provide the
starting-point for the discussion to-
day at the regular luncheon confer-
ence of the Linguistic Institute. Prof.
Edward Sapir of Yale University, vis-
iting faculty member of the Institute
this summer, will seek to define the
relationship between the fields of lin-
guistic research and speech study.
The discussion should prove of
considerable interest, according to
Prof. Charles C. Fries, director of the
Institute, because of the overlapping
of investigations in speech and in lin-
Those attending the conference

should note, added Professor Fries,
that tlie luncheon will be held in the
dining room of the Michigan Union
annex instead of in its former loca-

are invited to attend both the lun-
cheon and the subsequent discussion.

Spain," at a meeting of the Ann Ar-
bor Committee for Medical Aid to
Spain at 8 p.m. Thursday night in

Fresh Hair, Pardon, It's I
Fresh Air Gets Hair Cut
More than 100 Fresh Air Campers
wore fresh haircuts yesterday after
nine Ann Arbor barbers from the
State Street district had groomed
the camp gratis Sunday morning.
After the boys' ears had been set
out from thick hair, Barbers Emmert,
Shank, Smith, Berry, Maltby, Ash-
brook, Miller Lirette and Budniak in-
spected the camp and then ate din-
s er with the campers and staff.
On Aug. 15 the barbers from the
downtown district will clip the hair

Education Clubj
Hears Brumm
Talk At Uniont
Assumption Of Leadershipx
Necessary In Teaching,
He Contends
Education must concern itself with1
a better way of life for all people andt
assume leadership in its directionq
rather than merely nourish rich po-
tentialities of gifted individua fort
a society in which the deve pedE
powers can have no opportunity tot
function, Prof. John L. Brumm of
the journalism department told a
meeting of the Men's Education Club
last night in the Union.
Lists Four Goalst
"There are four goals that educa-N
tion should pursue," he stated. "Iti
must organize around the idea that
the selfish individual is a negationN
of social life, it must put forth thet
conviction and belief that no groupI
may arrogate to itself a sense of su-z
periority without social defeat, itt
must develop the capacities for mak-1
ing superior choices and it must strivei
towards a courageous lifting of cen-c
sorship from teaching and knowing."1
Professor Brumm declared that the
real test of education is not. the sys-c
tem, but the teacher. "It is not thec
form of literary masterpiece thatc
matters most, but what gets ex-
pressed through it," he said.
Thinking Confused
He pointed out that confusion ex-
tends pretty generally throughout the
range of the average citizen's think-
ing. "The average citizen blows hot
and cold," Professor Brumm stated.
"If he is a conservative, he be-
lieves that nothing should be done
the first time; if he 'is a radical, he
believes that the sooner everything is
done for the last time, the better1
off will be everyone concerned." 1
He continued saying that educa-
tion can be charged with leaving little
done to banish confusion and to
establish goals of richer promise for
human happiness and well being.
"Our confused laymen simply reflect
their confusion," Professor Brumm

World's Warmest

Disease and death in tropical

Dr. Wilson G. Smillie's Summer Ses-c
sion lecture yesterday on "Field Re-
search in Brazil."a
Dr. Smillie, formerly professor ofb
public health medicine at HarvardC
University, told his audience a num-a
ber of experiences among the half-s
primitive natives of the South Amer-I
ican interior, which he described as
"the hottest place in the world, as far
as I know."a
"One of the most virulent enemieso
of the health of the inhabitants ofa
the savage country is the hookworm,"
he said. "The ravages of this para-e
site are so widespread in South Amer-I
ica that it may prove a valuable aid
in establishing the direct relation be-d

ent and those of Asia, long a favoritea

Dr. Smillie told of a murder in
which he aided in the solution by ex-e
amining the suspect and establishing
the length of time he had lived in the
vicinity by the number of hookworms'
inhabiting his intestine.t
In one section of the land throughd
which he passed, Dr. Smillie declared,
the population had been so decimatedv
by malaria that it was said ,'there was
a death for every tie on the railroadt
track" running through the area.c
Even the pigs and the goats were fall-
ing prey to the fever. At one point at
child of eight was the only living in-r
habitant for miles around.

Leaders Plan
Quick Disposal
Of Court Bill
WASHINGTON, July 19.-(P)-Ad-
ministration leaders passed the word
tonight that they would make no at-
tempt to delay a "show-down" this
week on President Roosevelt's court
revamping bill.
If the opposition makes a move to
pigeon-hole the measure tomorrow
or later in the week, an immediate
vote can be obtained, the Roosevelt
leaders said. They expressd confi-
dence they have sufficient support to
defeat such a move.
The White House remained stu-
diously silent on Governor Herbert
H. Lehman's public criticism of the
measure, a criticism which stimulated
the opposition.
The last hours of the "armistice"
occasioned by the death of Majority
Leader Robinson of Arkansas wore
away with few sign. of any new com-
promise. The battle will be on again
in the Senate tomorrow, Vien debate
on the court bill is automaticly re-
sumed, perhaps about 2 p.m.

Finch Asserts
Says 20th-Century Effort
To Limit Arbitration Is
Backward Step
Courts Must Get
All Dispute Cases
The 20th-century effort to limit the;
scope of international arbitration by
classifying disputes into "justiciable"
and "non-justiciable" categories, is a1
backward step in the progressive de-
velopment of international law, Mr.
George A. Finch, last night told the1
audience of the third publictlecture
sponsored by the Summer Session of
International Law.1
Cites Permanent Court
The difference between "justici-
able" and "non-justiciable" disputes!
often implies the difference between
a situation making for peace or war,,
Mr. Finch pointed out. He cited theI
example of the Permanent Court of1
International Justice at The Hague
which hears and decides "justiciable"
disputes as a matter of routine and
with scant public attention, whereas1
at Geneva the questions debated by
the League of Nations are regarded
as "non-justiciable" and, if they can-
not be satisfactorily settled, lead in-
evitably to hostilities.
The word "justiciable," Mr. Finch1
said, signifies a question or matter1
liable to be tried in a court of jus-
ice. Its use in international law
dates only from the establishment of'
the Hague Courts in -1899 and 1907,
where attempts were made, in defin-
ing the jurisdiction of the new court,
to draw a distinction between so-
called legal and political cuestions. 1
Unwilling To Arbitrate
"The attempt to distinguish be-
tween these two classes of disputes,"+
he continued, "was coincident with
the modern period of concluding trea-
ties stipulating in advance for the
arbitration of future international
differences. The nations have been
unwilling to agree to arbitrate all
disputes of whatever character, and
have sought to limit arbitration to
disputes of a so-called legal character,
or to except from arbitration, ques-
tions of alleged honor, vital interests
or independence."
Mr. Finch gave as an example the

told the National Editorial Associa-

haywire," and called upon the press
of America to "fulfill its high mis-
He asserted that a "closed news and
editorial shop" is "incompatible with,

invited the N.E.A., composed of ed-

daily newspaper organizations in op-
posing such a movement.
Clayton T. Rand, of Gulfport, Miss.,
president of the association, said the
matter of formal affiliation with the

three weeks ago in Chicago to op-
pose the closed shop, probably would
come to a vote in Wednesday's session.

The Michigan school curriculum
must continue changing as long as
social change contiues, Dr. Paul T.
Rankin, supervising director of cur- I
riculum and research in the Detroitt
public school, told a group yesterdayr
in the auditorium of the Universityt
High School.
Speaking on "Michigan's Program
of Curriculum Reform," Dr. Rankinc
pointed out the purposes of the steer-
ing committee studying a program oft
curriculum revision for Michigan.
"They have two purposcs," he said,
"to define the best possible exper-
iences for children in schools, and to
develop the best possible guide for

comes only when teachers in all
schools begin rethinking what should
be done in their schools," he de- t
Dr. Rankin continued by pointing
out what the steering commission
has done, what it is doing and what it t
expects to do for the future of Mich-~
igan education.-
In closing, he told what local school -
systems could do to cooperate with
the committee.
Rebels Storm
Loyalist Lines
Around Madrid
MADRID, July 19.-(P)-The great-
est battle of the civil war raged
through its fifth day today as the
Insurgents poured thousands of fresh
troops against the government s
newly won lines west of Madrid.
One hundred thousand men were
believed to be fighting in each side.
No longer was it a tactical struggle
for position or a few miles of terri-
tory, but the bitter clash of two ar-
mies trying to destroy each other.
Generalissimo Francisco Franco
hurled his greatest strength against
the salient in the government lines
at Brunete, 12 miles west of the cap-
ital. The Insurgent drive evidently
was designed to wipe out the govern-
ment's recent gains, which, in a two-
weeks offensive, had been driven far
enough to constitute a grave perial

His Old 'Chief'
Affirms Continued
Support To F.D.R.
ALBANY, N.Y., July 19.--(P)-
Differing with his old "Chief," New
York's Democratic Governor Herbert
H. Lehman today opposed President
Roosevelt's Supreme Court reorgani-
zation plan, calling it "A greatly
dangerous precedent."
Later the Governor's secretary said
'scores" of congratulatory telegrams
were being received by the man whom
Roosevelt, while himself Governor,
alled "My strong right arm." Leh-
man was lieutenant governor at the
Makes Letter Public
In making public a letter to Dem-
ocratic United States Senator Robert
F. Wagner, of New York, asking him
"To voice my opposition to the court
bill," Lehman praised Roosevelt's
"social program."
Enactment of the court bill, Leh-
man asserted, "would create a great-
y dangerous precedent which could
be availed or by future less well in-
tentioned administrations for the
purpose of oppression or for the cur-
tailment of the constitutional rights
of our citizens."
Senator Wagner declined comment
on the letter until he has read it,
probably tomorrow when he returns
to Washington after a week-end at
Avon, N.J. There was no immediate
White House comment.
Lehman's First Backfire
The Governor's unexpected action
on the eve of a "finish fight" on the
bill threw a bombshell into political
circles, coming as it did as the first
opposition to any Roosevelt admin-
istration policy since he succeeded
the President as New York Governor
in 1933.
"Like many others I have fre-
quently felt keen disappointment
that' important legislative measures
have been declared unconstitutional
by a slim and unconvincing margin
in the Supreme Court," the Governor
wrote Wagner.
"And yet I believe that the orderly
and deliberate processes of govern-
ment should not be sacrificed merely
to meet an immediate situation. From
the broad standpoint of the public
interest whatever immediate gain
might be achieved through the pro-
posed change in the court would, in
my opinion, be far more than offset
by a loss of confidence in the inde-
pendence of the courts and in govern-
mental procedure."
