the 80-mile journey from Lee's Ferry
-had been "exciting" but there had
beexi no spills in shooting the Colo-
rado's tortuous rapids
"It was an exciting trip," Nevills
said:. I wouldn't recommend it for
weak-hearted persons."
He added that, all members of the
party, including Dr. Elzada Clover,
University of .Michigan botanist, and
her assistant, 25-year-old Lois Jot-
ter, had borne up well..
"How do I look?" was Dr. Clover's
first comment when the party land-

Both women were badly sunburned.
Dr Clover and Miss Jotter were
excited at receiving batches of mail
which the park service delivered to
Nevills said the six explorers would
spend the night in the floor of the

tion from pre-school'age through col-
In his morning address Professor
McCloy stressed need for thorough
physical education in junior high
schools in particular, because of the
large numbers of children whose for-
mal schooling ends there. Professor
MlcCloy also spoke on methods of
testing and measuring the results of
physical education.
Concluding the first day of the con-
ference, Dr. McCloy spoke to physical
education students at a banquet at
the Michigan Union last night on
"Progress in Physical Education." In
addition to many years of public
education work in this country, Dr.

McCloy has taught at National South-

After Reaching Ireland In 9-Year Old Single-

Ireland, July 18.-(P)-Douglas G.
Corrigan, 31-year-old Californian,
eased a battered $900 airplane onto
Baldonnel airport tocay after flying
3,150 unauthorized miles alone across
the Atlantic from New York.
He climbed from the cockpit of his
nine-year-old plane into a circle of
open-mouthed Irishmen and an-
nounced calmly:
"I'm Douglas Corrigan. Just got
in from New York.
"It took me 28 hours and 13 min-
"Where am I? I intended to fly
to California."
No one took seriously his story that
he had flown in the wrong direction,
but nevertheless he repeated it time
and again.
He didn't have a passport, landing
papers or maps. He didn't hve a
radio or any fancy instruments.
But he had $15, an incorrigible grin
and his story of a flight in the wrong
Corrigan landed at 2:30 p.m. (8:30

While technically detained here, it
was not expected he would encounter
much trouble for his unsanctioned
flight over the Atlantic.
(In Washington, Dennis P. Mulli-
gan, chief of the air commerce bu-
reau, said he had postponed the ques-
tion of punishment regulations pro-

English-speaking world for his con-
tributions in the field of sacred chor-
al music and solo songs. Dr. Willan
will accompany Professor Van Deur-
sen at the piano this evening.

Wolfe And Duffendack
Address Conference
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 18 (Spe-
cial to the Daily)-Two University of
Vichigan faculty men were among
the speakers on the opening day of
the 1938 Conference on "Spectroscopy
and Its Applications" being held here
this week in the George Eastman
Laboratories of the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology.

Dr. R. A. Wolfe, who chose as his
subject "The Use of a Helium Lamp
for Plate Calibration and Control,"
discussed this piece of spectroscopic
apparatus in connection with re-
search work done at Michigan in
collaboration with Dr. O. S. Duffen-
dack. His paper covered fundamental
work in quantitative spectrographic
analysis especially in the realm of
the analysis ofsolutions of different
tvnes and metal analysis. esuecially

shuddered. Hundreds of persons
flocked to the airport to see the flier
and his craft.
Corrigan glibly explained how he
had made a bee line out over the
Atlantic when his destination was
California with the words:
"My compass went wrong."
He landed his monoplane near a
new. type, twin-engined plane of the
Irish Sea Airways which was just
about to hop to London.
Passengers clambered out to look.
They whistled and one remarked:
"It's a curious looking affair."
But the American didn't think so.
He patted his ship and said:'
"All it needs is a bit of grease. Then
it will take me back to New York."
Rumanian Lind y
At Last Prepared
For Ocean Jump
NEW YORK, July 18-(P)-A Ru-
manian air force officer plans to
take off Thursday on the first non-
stop New York-to-Bucharest flight in
the history of North Atlantic cross-
ings, and thereby hangs a story of
$50,000 which went out the window.
Almost a year ago Capt. Alexander
Papana's flight to his homeland was
announced formally. He would use a
specially built tri-motored speed
Difficulties developed. Papana said
the plane, manufactured in this
country, failed to meet his, specifica-
tions. The makers refused a refund.
He went to court. His dream of wing-
ing into Bucharest faded.
The money represented the com-
bined contributions of friends and
the public. Part had been raised by
open subscription, for Papana is to
Rumania what Lindbergh has been
to the United States.
The litigation dragged on. He de-
cided to recoup his financial loss.
Systematically he began appearing at
air shows-Cleveland, St. Louis, Mi-
ami, Oakland and other points. His
flattened purse got fatter. Late last
spring he had accumulated eough
money to plank down the purchase
price of another plane.
Today he took off from Detroit for
Hartford, Conn., where he will com-
plete preparations to leave Floyd
Bennett Field here within a few days.
Planning to carry a 33-hour gas sup-
ply, he hopes to make the trip in 31

m. Thursday at Lane Hall to acquaint
interested persons with the progress
made so far by the organization in
its drive to provide low cost housing

'Noh' Dramas
Are Topic Of
Dr. Sakanishi
Primitive Theatrical Form
Of Japanese Theatre Is
Seen Lacking Emotion
Stage Compared
To Shakespearean
"Life and Death Problems as Il-
lustrated in the Classical Noh Dra-
mas" was the topic of Dr. Shio Sak-
anishi of the Department of Orient-
alia at the Library of Congress in
Washington when she made the first
of the third group of University Lec-
tures yesterday in the Graduate
School. '11
Dr. Sakanishi spent several years
on the University campus where she
received the doctor of philosophy de-
gree. She has edited three recent
books on Japanese poetry and two
more are being prepared for publi-
cation soon. Dr. Sakanishi has also
done extensive work in the various
forms of Chinese literature.
Her lecture yesterday was illus-
trated with the first movie actually
made of a Noh Drama, the primitive,
simple theatrical form of the Japan-
ese people. Dr. Sakanishi described
the Noh Drama as being as devoid of
actual emotion as possi le. Instead,
she said, the Noh dram is charac-
terized by a rigid restraint and con-
ventional expressions of feeling. Sub-
tility with a tinge on unreality is
another characteristic of the Noh
play. Actors wear weird masks be-
cause at the inception stage of the
drama the priests in' temples were
forced to play many roles and the
mask was the only distinguishing
mark between roles. Even today the
masks are retained and the Noh
drama is devoid of stage effects ex-
cept for the painted backdrop and
the masks. The Noh play, Dr. Sakan-
ishi explained, is the perfection of
simplicity, a bare frame of a house
suiting admirably for an emperor's
home or any other edifice.
A chorus and an orchestra are in-
;egral parts of a Noh play, Dr. Sak-
anishi pointed out, for the entire
technique of the drama consists of
blending action, music and posture
of the actors in order to give the de-
sired portrayal of emotion and tempo
of action.

Today's request, the suspended of-
icers explained, was taken so that
locals supporting the Frankensteen
roup would not be disqualified from

in the event that one is called.
Addes was expelled from the union
after President Martin had charged
hat he violated the constitution by
arging locals to send their per capita'
axes to him rather than to the in-
ernational body.
Addes was among those who ap-
pealed to the locals to send dues to1
international officers in order that
hey might not be recorded as delin-;
quent on the international office
Meanwhile, a group of local union
presidents that favors "no compro-
nise and no intervention" prepared
to leave by automobile for Washing-
tdn for a conference with John L.
Lewis, chairman of the CIO. The
conference will be the fifth that Lewis
has participated in with UAW chief-
ains since President Martin announ-
ed the suspensions.
He has conferred with Martin
twice, with the ousted officials once
and once with a group of local repre-
sentatives favoring reinstatement of
FErankensteen and the other suspend-
ed officials.
Martin was expected to return to
Detroit tomorrow from Goreville, Ill.,

The suspended officers asserted
today that 57 local unions and 156,000
members had demanded a special

Campus Proved Ladies'
Happy Hunting Ground
A cryptic letter was received at the
office of the Summer Session some-
time before the Session opened. It
was from a young woman in New
England and ran something like this.
"Can you inform me as to the
average age of summer school
students at Michigan and the
proportion of men towomen?"
If the writer of the letter was
honeymoon-bent the results tabula-
ted by Miss Marian Williams, Univer-
sity statistician, will undoubtedly
make Michigan her choice as a happy
hunting ground. Miss Williams' fig-
ures show that the average age of
summer students here is 22 and the
proportion of men to women is about
one-and-one-half to one. Of the total
enrollment to date of 5,636. 3,582 are
men and 2,054 women.

WASHINGTON, July 18.- (/) -
President Roosevelt's decision to visit
the Great Lakes region after he re-

hand in the Wisconsin campaign and
expound his New Deal gospel in some
other states as well.
Presidential aides announced Sat-
urday that the President, after end-

At Port Huron the President will
meet Lord Tweedsmuir, the Govern-

vacation rest.
Such a journey would afford him
an opportunity to say a few kind
words for Senator Duffy (Dem., Wis.),
an Administration supporter who is
unopposed for re-nomination. Among

Nations Will Arbitrate Only
'Legal' Disputes, Finch Says

Discussing the difference betweent
"justiciable" and "non-justiciable"k
disputes, George A. Finch, secretaryt
of the Society of International Law,
stated last night that the attempt toc
distinguish between these two classes1
of disputes was coincident with the1
modern period of concluding treaties1
stipulating in advance for the arbi-I
tration of future international dif-;
ferences. He spoke in the small am-
phitheatre of the Graduate School.
.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 questions of alleged
honor, vital interests or independence,
Mr. Finch pointed out.

This 20th-century effort to limit
the scope of international arbitration
by classifying international disputes
according to their nature is not in
accordance with the previous practice
of nations and is a backward step in
the progressive development of in-
ternational arbitration by ad hoc tri-
bunals, Mr. Finch went on to say.
Previously, many disputes had been
adjusted by arbitration which in-
volved political as well as legal ques-
tions, and also questions of honor,
independence and vital interests.
He stated several instances and
enumerated some of the questions
which have been submitted to arbi-
tr'ation and successfully settled. An
examination of the cases actually de-
cided by arbitration shows that the
difference lies in the willingness or
