TOKYO, Aug. 1-(R)-Japanese
and Russian troops kept a tense peace
tonight separated by only a few hun-
dred yards of shell-torn no-man's
land on the Manchoukuo-Siberia bor-
Scarcely 75 yards divided them at
one point.
The Japanese War Office said fir-
ing ceased in accord with a Japanese-
Soviet midnight truce reached in
Moscow by the Japanese Ambassador,
Shigemitsu, and Foreign Commissar
Maxim Litvinoff.
Warfare halted exactly one month
after the first outbreak at Changku-

fighting had been almost continuous

A feeling of general relief was ap-
parent throughout Tokyo, already
deeply involved in the second year of
an undeclared war in China.
There was no surprise expressed,
however, for authorities consistently
have maintained that the Siberian

MOSCOW, Aug. 11-(A')-An at-
mosphere of cautious optimism per-
vaded Moscow tonight as a truce

the frontier between Far Eastern

Though direct reports from the
battle zone yere lacking, it was as-

(The Japanese War Office in Tokyo
announced all quiet along the dis-

Japanese troops stopped fighting sep-
arated only by a few hundred yards
of no-man's land.)
Among foreign diplomats and mili-
tary observers it washoped fervent-
ly that the border warfare had end-
ed, 'but some hesitated to celebrate
peace until several days have passed
without further outbreaks along the
frontier where Soviet-Japanese fric-
tion is long-standing.
Observers with a long memory of
Far Eastern border disputes pointed
out that a truce on one point along
the twisting Siberian frontier some-
times was only a prelude to new fight-
ing on another point.
Others suggested that much de-

BARNESVILLE, Ga., Aug. 11.-(P)
-President Roosevelt for the first
time called vigorously today for the
defeat of a Democratic Senator he
feels does not meet the tests of lib-
eralism-and his challenge was
promptly accepted.
Mr. Roosevelt told perspiring sand
cheerigg thousands assembled here
for a rural electrification celebration
he felt Sen. Walter F. George should
not be returned to the seat he has oc-
cupied 16 years and added firmly "I
most assuredly would vote for Law-
rence Camp" in Georgia's Sept. 14
Senator George sat impassively on
the platform through the President's
hard-hitting speech and at its con-
clusion walked across to the party
chief, snook hands with him and said:
"Mr. Roosevelt," I regret that yout
have taken this occasion to question
my Democracy and to attack my pub-
lic record. I want you to know that I
accept the challenge." .
The President's answer was lost in
the confusion of many persons mov-
ing across the platform but Senator
George later told newsmen Mr. Roose-
velt replied: -
"God bless you, Walter. Let's al-
ways be friends."
In making the young Federal dis-t

It was the second Georgia speech

Athens he received an honorary Doc-
torate of Laws from the state univer-
sity, renewed previous appeals for a
sharp improvement in Southern ec-
onomic standards and called for "con-
stant progressive action" in the na-
tional government.
Mr. Roosevelt frequently called
George "my friend" and said he "is

Traffic Parley
Inspects Tests
For Motorists
Administration Of Exams
Hit For Inefficiency And
Lacking Thoroughness
Role Of Psychology
In Traffic Drawn
Demonstration of standard drivers'
license examinations and of special-
ized technical,, clinical examination
for drivers with high accident records
were featured yesterday in the after-
noon session of the National Institute
for Traffic Safety Training.
The disadvantages and inefficient
aspects of the typical drivers' license
examination were discussed by J. S.
Baker, Traffic Safety Consultant for
the National Safety Council. Among
the defects listed were the usual lack
of thoroughness of such examina-
tions, the expense of a really thorough
examination, public objection to ex-
aminations that pass only qualified
drivers, and difficulty of obtaining
competent examiners.j
Color blindness tests used in con-1
nection with drivers' license exami-
nations are of little value, according
to Mr. Baker. Their purpose is simply
to point out to the driver that color'
blindness exists and that he must
compensate for it, he said. Accidents
resulting from color blindness alone
are extremely rare, Mr. Baker pointed
A complete demonstration of an
up-to-date clinical examination was
presented by Alan Canty, traffic psy-
chotechnologist of the Detroit Re-
corders' Court. The psychiatric clinic
there has been operated since 1920
and has handled over 20,000 cases in
that time. In recent years special at-
tention has been paid to traffic of-
fenders, Mr. Canty said, and new tests
for drivers have been instituted.

Dusted Union Official Says
Explosion Was Intended
As An Intimidation Hint
DETROIT, Aug. 11.-UP)-Police to-
day maintained a guard about the
home -of Richard T. Frankensteen,
deposed international vice-president
of the United Automobile Workers
Union, after a black powder bomb ex-
ploded in a garage in the rear of
Frankensteen's home last night.
The garage was damaged, but no
harm was done to the house or its
The explosion took place while
Frankensteen and his wife, their two
children who were asleep, Maurice
Sugar, Frmnkensteen's attorney, and
Mrs. Dorothy Kraus were in the
house. Sugar and Frankensteen were
going over a radio speech which
Frankensteen made tonight. Mrs.
Kraus is a stenographer.
"I believe the bombing was an at-
tempt to intimidate me," Franken-
steen asserted. "I have no reason
for accusing anyone in particular, but
I have no enemies except those in
the fight over UAW affairs."

Schools Constitute Cornerstone
Of Naziism, Schorling Contends

Lecturer Cites Difficulties
Of Isolating Institution
From The Social Pattern
Schools constitute the cornerstone

Linguists Find
Indian Survey
Revealing Test
Will Repeat Experiment
With American Indian
On Unwritten "Language
That this summer's experiment of
bringing to Ann Arbor an American
Indian for purposes of linguistic ob-
servation justifies similar action next
year was the conclusion reported at
the Linguistic Institute luncheon con-
feren'ce yesterday 'by Dr. Carl Voege-
lin of the department of anthropol-
ogy of De Pauw University and Dr.'
Zellig Harris of the department of
Semitic languages of the University
of Pennsylvania.
The current experiment was first
projected a year ago in response to
a demand for an opportunity to make
detailed observations of an unwrit-
ten language. As a result Dr. Voegelin
brought with him in June a Hidatsa
Indian from North Dakota. The In-
dian, Charles Snow or "Bear-Arm",
is by vocation a cowboy, but for the
past two months has busied himself
in enjoying life in Ann Arbor and in
providing examples of Hidatsa lan-
guage for Voegelin and Harris.
Such a project is of great value,
Dr. Voegelin told the Institute mem-
bers, because it brings the subject out
of the generally difficult fieldjcondi-
tions into a place where severalre-
corders can collaborate and where
they can check with various linguistic
experts with respect to accuracy of
results, It is, Dr. Harris added, par-
ticularly advantageous for scholars
whose linguistic training has been
exclusively with written languages.

peculiar society it springs from and
which it is intended to serve. That
the schools are definitely and frankly
an instrument of the National So-
cialist Party is an obvious fact, Pro-
fessor SchorliAg said, that is denied
by no one, and that is evidenced in
textbooks, curriculum and classroom
If one accepts the basic Nazi as-
sumption that ' Hiter is a man of
destiny, the spearhead of the attack
upon the "only" problem of the world
-the 'orderly, systematic develop-
ment of civilization versus engulfing
society in disorder, and violence--
the tactics and methods in German
schools appear logical and effective,
Professor Schorling said, because they
accomplish the task of inculcating the
youth of the land with the doctrines
of National Socialism with efficiency
and dispatch.
Party doctrine is taught as a re-
ligion by "young editions of Hitler"
who enter into their work with all'
the zeal and enthusiasm of fanatics'

predestined task of saving the world,
Professor Schorling said, and their
influence among the young people of
the land is tremendous. The leaders
of the Hitler Youth have in fact,
much more control over both the
schools and the children, than do the
s c h o o l administrators, Professor
Schorling declared.
Professor Schorling concluded the
lecture by delineating some of his per-
sonal observations and conclusions
about the Nazi regime in general,
gleaned after an extensive stay in.
the country. He expressed amaze-
ment at the extent to which the com-
mon man can be regimented with-
out having him resent the fact that
you have taken away his freedom, so
long as you improved his material
lot; he was amazed at the serenity
and emotional stability of most edu-
cated men in Germany tdespite the
trying recent history of that country;
he is convinced that "we in America
have a tremendous battle on our
hands," probably not military, per-
haps economic, surely psychological,"
to maintain and improve our institu-
tions in an orderly fashion in the
face of the dynamic example of Eu-
rope, and lastly, he expressed the be-
lief that the common people of Ger-
many "are fine folks, just like the
men and women in every other coun-
try are."

SecretaryShirley Smith
Regents' Approval
Pends Official Offer
The University- of Michigan was
yesterday granted $945,000 of Public
Works Administration funds to use
toward the completion of the Unioh
quadrangle men's dormitories, and
one dormitory for medical school stu-
dents, to house 1,000 men in all.
The official 'notification of the
PWA approval came at 1 p.m. yester-
day by telegram addressed to Shirley
Smith, vice-president and secretary
of the University and read: "Allot-
ment of $945,000 made by the PWA to
the Regents of the University of
Michigan for two dormitory build-
ings' project-docket Michigan 1559F
-Will forward offer in a few days.
Rush preparations, final plans and
specifications and immediately take
steps to make available funds neces-
sary for project in addition to allot-'
ment. Public announcement of al-
lotment authorized." The telegram
was signed by D. .R Kennicott, re-
gional director of the PWA.
Regents To Raise Rest
The grant is 45 per cent of the total
$2,100,000 needed to construct the
dormitories. The remainder of the
necessary funds will be raised by the
Regents. through the sale of bond
issues, now being arranged by Earl H.
Cress, executive vice-president of the
Ann Arbor TrustCompany. The of-
fer to be forwarded referred to in the
telegram applies to the formal pro-
cedure required in making PWA
grants in which the PWA adminis-
trator offers the money to University
following the filing and the ap-
proval of the application for funds.
When the University receives this
offer in a few days, it will be neces-
sary for the Regents to formally ac-
cept the allotment, and then for the
contract to be drawn.
Must Demolish Houses
The Union quadrangle dormitories,
expected to house 850 men, will neces-
sitate the tearing down of the houses
now facing Thompson Street and
several facing E. Jefferson and E.
Madison Streets. The Union park-
ing lot will be moved to the corner
of E. Jefferson and Thompson Streets,
from its present position directly be-
hind the Union. The dormitory ad-
ditions will adjoin the Allen-Rumsey
dormitories which were opened last
fall for freshmen students. The pro-
posed dormitories, it is believed, will
be ready for occupancy in the fall of
1939 and that freshmen will again
be given the preference of rooming
in the dormitories.
The medical students' dormitory
will be constructed at Catherine and
Glen Streets. It will house 150 men.
The PWA grant now makes it pos-
sible for the University to speed up
the completion of the dormitory
quadrangle which has long been a
hope of the University, students and
alumni. The PWA application for
funds was long pending, and it is be-
lieved that due to the interest and
assistance of the Regents, especially
Regent John D. Lynch, and the co-
operation of the PWA regional direc-
tor, Mr. Kennicott, the grant was
finally secured.
