World Youth Day Marked Penal System
Throughout Nation Today Compared To


Gen. Miaja Strategy Seen
Aimed At Surprise Of
The Insurgent Troops
Government Guns
Trained On Teruel
HENDAYE, France (At the Span-
ish Frontier), Aug. 1.-(P)-Gen. Jose
Miaja's central Spanish Government
army stormed and captured the stra-
tegic "Bluff of Camarena" 13 miles
south of Teruel today, forcing Insur-
gent Generalissimo Francisco Franco
to hurry troops from other fronts to
defend his Teruel lines.
Dispatches from both sides agreed
that Miaja's moves were designed to
capture the Insurgents off-guard at
- the moment they were' using every
available man to protect Gandesa, 100
miles northeast of Teruel, against
Government offensives from Cata-
In constant touch with his field
commanders near Gandesa on the
Ebro River front, Gen. Miaja or-
dered a sudden attack from the south
which resulted in capture of the high
promontory at Camerna dominating
a, dozen villages and hamlets, includ-
ing Valdecloche, Cascabte, and Cubla,
all a few miles to the north..
The advance brought Government
guns within 10 miles of Teruel, capi-
tal of the province of Teruel, which
the Government seized and lost less
than six months ago.
The success of this surprise attack
forced Insurgent field commanders in
the Teruel area to demand reinforce-
ments to protect not only Insurgent
positions along the Teruel-Sagunto
highway to the coast, but the city of
Teruel itself. Camarena is six miles
There was intinse activity behind
both fronts durling the last 48 hours.
The Government was transferring
men and material across the Ebro
into the newly-conquered zone be-
fore Gandesa-
General Franco was trying to de-
fend both the Teruel and Ebro sec-
tors, at the same time pushing his
own counter-attacks in the northern
and southern Ebro zones.
Despite heavy attacks by the Insur-
gents on both flanks, the Government
line about .the Ebro region was
changed little. The Insurgents, with
superior aviation and artillery, made
some progress in daylight hours, but
the Government, relying on night at-
tacks and day defense, succeeded in
holding its lines.

Book Of World Fellowship To Be Signed By Students;
Contributions Asked To Defray Expenses
Of Second World Youth Congress
World Youth Day will be marked today by students and young people's
groups all over the country, and another step will be taken in the drive to
finance the Second World Youth Congress at Vassar College, Poughkeepsie,
New York.t
A table will be stationed in the center of the Campus directly in front of the
General Library where students will be urged to stop on their way to classes
to register their names in the Book of0

World Fellowship. Ten cents will be
solicited from those students to assist
in defraying the expenses of the great
congress at Vassar which will bring to-
gether over 500 youths from 52 nations
of the world representing their politi-
cal, social and ° economic national
The discussion aims of the Con-
gress are to gain through mutual ex-
change of ideas, a clearer conception
of the political and economic organiz-
ation for peace, the economic and
cultural status of youth and its rela-;
tion to peace, and the ethical and
philosophical bases of peace. The
Congress will Olan methods of cdl-
laboration in an attempt to enable
young people to fulfill their responsi-
bility in contributing to world peace.
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the his-
tory department said in regards to the
Congress yesterday:
'Youth Movements Important'
"Youth movements have been of
great importance in history. One
thinks of Disraeli and "Young Eng-
land," Mazzini and "Young Italy", the,
"Young Turks" who regenerated the
Ottoman Empire, the German ronman-
ticistswho gathered around Heine
and the French romanticists who ap-
plauded the first plays of Victor Hugo.
"Unfortunately the generous ener-
gies of youth, nearly always vital and
sincere, are just as capable of being
turned 'into a reactiopary as a pro-
gressive channel. Fascism is a youth
movement; so is National Socialism;
in Germany. It is very important that
if there should be -a youth movement
in the United States that it be focused
in a useful direction.
No One Direction
"At present there are many youth
movements in this country, as in
Britain and France, but they point
in no one quarter of the compass.
They are all over the map. The chief
characteristics of our youth is be-
wilderment which, all over the world
now, is also the chief characteristic, of
their elders. If the forthcoming Con-
gress can find a common aim for the
energies of youth, and if that aim
should be based on liberal instead of
illiberal principles, it will perform a
greater service than could any Con-I
gress of elders, including even the7
Congress of the United States."

Film On China
Will Be Shown.
By Student Club
'Thunder Over China' I
Back By Demand; Panay
Pictures To Be Available
"Thunder Over China," a motion
picture record of the Sino-Japanese
conflict which has been previously
presented here, has been brought
back by the Chinese Students' Club in
response to popular demand, and
will be presented in connection with
new material at 8 p. m. Wednesday
in the Natural Science Auditorium.,
it was announced yesterday.
The picture attempts to answer the
question of how the Chinese, with
their particular cultural background,
have managed for so long to resist
the invasion of the Japanese armies.
"From World War to World Com-
munity" is the theme of the addition-
al material. The picture has a com-
plete sound accompaniment.
Eye-witnesses, working under the
most difficult and dangerous condi-
tions, obtained the photographs
which make up the additional mater-
ial. This material emphasizes the con-
trast between the Chinese and Jap-
anese traditions.
Dr. Francis Onderdonk, who coop-
erated with the Chinese Students'
Club in bringing the pictures here,
will present pictures of the bombing
of the U. S. S. Panay if the audience
requests it.
Tickets for the performance may
be obtained at Wahr's bookstore or
at the door for 20 cents. Proceeds
from the performance will go to help
Chinese civilian relief.

Chinese linguistics at Yale Univer-
sity, who will speak in the Rackham
amphitheatre at 7:30 p.m..

Gerald Bush Says System
Is Based On Individual
Tests At Incarceration
Case History Dictates
Parole Action Taken
A program of education adapted
completely to the individual, rather
than, a general program individual-
ized in a few cases, is but one of the
aspects of the penal system that is
superiov,4o teducational practice, Ger-
ald Bush of the State Parole Board
said yesterday in his lecture, "Appli-
cation of Educational Techniques to
Penology and Parole Problems," given
in the University High School audi-
This program, according to Mr.
Bush, is based on a complete and
exhaustive survey of the individual
made from the time he is first incar-
cerated, by sociologists, psychologists,
and doctors. Their studies are incor-
porated in a case history of the indi-
vidual that treats his home environ-
ment, schooling, working experience,
physical and mental condition, and
general aptitudes and capacities, Mr.
Bush said. This case history is
studied carefully before action is
taken in any case, regarding paroles,
transfers to other institutions, or
probatinary periods.
"Parole is not synonymous with
clemency, mercy, shortening of the
term, or any manner of release," Mr.
Bush pointed out. "Most attacks on
the parole system are coupled with
the suggestion that the prisoner be
kept in the institution. There is only
one alternative for parole, and that
is free and complete discharge."
He explained that the maximum
term of imprisonment is fixed by
statute, and the minimum is at the
discretion of the sentencing judge.
No prisoner is eligible for parole until
ais minimum sentence,;d*ft
good behavior time off, is served, at
which point he is automatically eli-
gible, Bush said. Of course; he ex-
plained, only a few of those who are
eligible for parole have it granted to
them. After a study of the case his-
tory, the parole board decides wheth-
er the prisoner shall be released on
parole or sent back for a period of
six months or more.
Bush said that during the parole
period the prisoner was checked care-
fully and often by a trained corps of
parole officers to whom he had to
report at predetermined intervals.
This factor, he explained, often
makes early parole preferable to
confinement. He gave as an example
the case of a Detroit sex criminal
who, when. released on parole, could
be observed in normal surroundings
and under restrictions, while if he
had been kept confined until he had
served his maximum sentence, would
have spent the time in abnormal liv-
ing conditions and would have been
completely free to do as he pleased

UAW Officers
File Answers
To Accusation
Say New Trial Procedure,
Evidence By Affidavits
Balks Fair Judication
Refute Conspiracy
Charge By Martin
DETROIT, Aug. 1.-('P)-Four sus-
pended vice-presidents of the United
Automobile Workers filed their for-
mal answer to charges preferred
against them by President Homer
Martin, denying all allegations and
hurling some charges of their own.
Protesting the new trial procedure,
under which evidence by affidavit
will supplant oral testimony, the de-
fendants' reply said that "it denies
the defendants any trial at all and
permits a verdict of guilty, a la Hit-
ler, by a majority of the 'trial com-
Denying that the defendants were
engaged in a conspiracy, as charged
by Martin, the reply said that the
only conspiracy involved was between
"Martin and an irresponsible, dis-
ruptive, political adventurer and in-
ter-meddler of New York." It said
that Martin had appointed allies of
the unnamed "adventurer" to posi-
tions of influence.
The suspended officers previously
had charged that Martin was under
the influence of Jay Lovestone, who
broke away from the Communist
Party some years ago and now heads
the independent labor league.
Under the revised procedure, all
affidavit evidence must be submitted
by Wednesday for introduction when
the trial resumes Saturday. The de-
fendants are Richard T. Franken-
steen, Walter N. Wells, Wyndham
Mortimer and Ed Hall.
UAW officers here expressed no
concern over an injunction hearing,
scheduled for Wednesday in New
York Supreme Court, in which six
-sapended-~ officers of the Tarrytown
(N.Y.) local seek to restrain Martin
from interfering with affairs of the
local. The Tarrytown local was one
of three for which Martin appointed
administrators recently after sus-
pending the local officers. UAW of-
ficers here said it was the first court
suit, so far as they knew, of the
currenlt factional dispute.
Martin Given Summons
NEW YORK, Aug. 1.-(P-Na-
tional officers of the United Auto-
mobile Workers of America (CIO)
have been summoned to Supreme
Court Wednesday to show cause why
the international union should not
be restrained from expelling officers
of Local 118 in Tarrytown, N.Y., and
otherwise interfering with its affairs.
The order to appear-which in-
cluded Homer Martin, national presi-
dent-was signed by Justice Edward
J. McGoldrick on a petition for a
permanent injunction filed on behalf
of six officers of the local who said
the case presented the first legal test
of the union's constitution and Mar-
tin's authority to usurp powers of
the locals.
In an affidavit accompanying the
petition, Martin was accused of
violating the union's constitution and
suppressing free speech and expres-
sion over union affairs. ,

Biology Camp
Visito~rs' Day
To, BeSunda y
The 11th annual visitors' day at
the University Biological Station at
Douglas Lake near Cheboygan will
be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Educational exhibits illustating
the work of the classes and scientific
investigations will be on display.
Members of the faculty will be glad
to discuss rare plants and animals
and biological problems with visitors.
The Biological Station is located
on the southeast shore of Douglas
Lake, Cheboygan County, on the Che-
boygan-Petoskey road 13 miles south-
west of Cheboygan. The roads from
Cheboygan, Topinabee, Butus and
Pellston will be posted with signs di-
recting visitors to the station. Ample
room has been provided for parking
cars. There is no charge for admis-
sion to the grounds and to all places
of interest.
The Biological Station was estab-
lished in 1909 and has held an eight
week's session every summer since
that time. Its founders had two prin-
ciple objectives, namely, to investigate
biological problems and to bring stu-
dents and teachers into direct con-
tact with living animals and plants
m their natural surroundings. These
still remain the chief objectives of the
station, and northern Michigan has
proved well suited for this work.
Many lakes ofralL sizes, marshes, bogs,
brooks and rivers as well as large
tracts of unoccupied. wild lands in-
cluding pine and jackpine 'lains,
hardwood forests, fir, spruce and
cedar swamps, sand dunes along the
shores of the great lakes, and farm
lands furnish an extraordinary va-
riety of conditions for the study of
animals and plants.
This summer 120 students are ene-

Japanese losses were given as uip-

The gravity of the situation was
seen in instructions to the Soviet
charge d'affaires iii Tokyo to warn
the Japanese government of "possible
sterrible consequences" of this inva-
sion of Russian territory.
The battle i ranks as the biggest
clash on the Soviet-Manchoukuo
frontier since- the beginning in 1931
of the long series of boundary inci-
dents, numbering hundreds.
Foreign military observers here who
previously were inclined to view the
situation as only another of these
incidents were beginning to take a
graver view of the encounter.
Thirteen Rtissian soldiers were re-

Prof. Cressey Tells Of Travels
Over 16,000 Miles Of Siberia

Mr. Kane


A Few Words

Siberia, "most bewildering land in
the world," was the subject yesterday
of the first of four talks being given
in the Rackham Building in conjunc-
tion with the Institute of Far Eastern
Studies by Prof. George Babcock
Cressey, chairman of the Department
of Geology and Geography at Syra-
cuse Uni ersity.
Although none of us have much
actual knowledge of the Soviet, said
Professor Cressey, ;he hoped after
having traveled over 16,000 miles last
summer by land, sea, and air, mainly
in Siberia, to be able to give each
member of his audience sufficient ma-
terial to bring his "prejudices on
the subject up to date." While on
the one hand there is probably no-
where else a land so difficult, ex-
asperating and bureaucratic, he said,
neither is there anywhere such a
striking, thrilling, pioneer land as
One of his pet peeves, said Profes-
sor Cressey, is the purely arbitrary

istics of Siberia, Professor Cressey il-
lustrated his talk with two stand-
maps. First he showed the gigantic
West Siberian Plain, or Marine Plain,
which is drained by the waters of the
Ob, one of Siberia's three great south-
to-north rivers. The plain was form-
erly the bottom of a southern arm of
the Arctic Ocean,, extending as far
south as Lake Aral and possibly to
the Caspian Sea, in an age when the
temperature was much higher in-the
northern hemisphere. To the west
of the plain lies the chain of the
Ural Mountains, which are really not
mountains but merely the roots, the
stocks of an ancient and much might-
ier range. It is this fact that makes
the region one of great mineralogical
variety and valae.
To the east of the Marine Plain lies
the Angara Shield in the watersheds
of the Yenisei and Lena Rivers, a
huge pre-cambrian area of lava beds
north of Lake Baikal interspersed
with paleozoic coal beds, some of
the largest reserves in the world.

About 'The Whiteheaded Boy'
"I'm exhausted, absolutely exhaust- °
ed," said Whitford Kane last night,
"and I haven't got a thing to say," Y
and he went on to say plenty about
the cast of the current Repertory
Players production, Lennox Robin-
son's "The Whiteheaded Boy," which
opens tomorrow for a four day run
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.un
Mr. Kane, director-star of the Irish .
comedy, throwing stage directions a-
round by the million, managed to
make clear that the important thing
about the action in the present pro- x
duction was that he was going toy
make it stand the embryo actors ofY
the Repertory company in good stead
when they hit the big time.
"The important thing to remembert
at a time like this," Mr. Kane said,
"is that we are here to develop actors.
We do not run through rehearsals
