Racial Prejudice
And The North...
W ITH HITLER taking all the joy out
of life for the Jew in Germany and
he Southerners doing their best to make the
NTegro uncomfortable, we Northerners sit back
with a clear conscience and give ourselves a little
pat on the back.
We have no prejudice toward the Jew or the
Negro, especially toward the latter. Didn't we
fight for four long years to free the Negro from
the bondage of slavery? Didn't we give him the
same constitutional rights as ourselves? Don't
we always treat him as an equal? Of course we
do. And we of Ann Arbor are shining examples
of democratic citizens of these United States, as
free from prejudice as a babe in arms. I
That's why we put up signs in our restaurants
saying that "We Reserve the Right to Seat Our
Patrons." That's why we push the Negro out into
the kitchen or to some less conspicuous place.
'hat's why we charge him exorbitant prices, give
hiim the poorest of food.
We are so shocked at the treatment he' gets in
Southern educational institutions that we shun
aim in class, sit as far away from him as possible
wherever we are. We keep him from all campus
activities, not by outwardly declaring that he
,annot participate-we would never do that-
but by isolating him, making him feel uncom-
'ortable, forcing upon him the fact that he is
iot our equal.
Oh, yes, we Northerners believe that the
egro is as good as the white man. We Thun the
rery though of racial prejudice. We are true
lemocrats in both thought and action. To put
t bluntly-"Oh, yeah!"

Influenza Series Fnds
Dr. C .H. Andrewes Declares Little Progress
Is Being Made In Immunization Of Influenza
Pointing out the none-too-encouraging results
obtained in investigating possible immunization
against influenza, Dr. C. H. Andrewes of the
Medical Research Gouncil of the National Insti-
tute for Medical Research, Hamstead, England,
yesterday ended his series of four talks on in-
fluenza and viruses.
Immunity to virus diseases, Dr. Andrewes in-
dicated, is generally of short duration. One ex-
planation of this may be that the viruses may
persist almost 'indefinitely in the recovered ani-
mal, apparently neutralized by the anti-bodies,
but able at any time, under proper circumstances,
to be liberated.
Another difficulty to immunization, he pointed
out, lies in the fact that the anti-bodies are also
unable to penetrate into the living celles, where
the virus resides, and can be effective only when
the virus transfers from one cell to another. The
importance of anti-bodies in immunity, he
cautioned, has not been established, and some
experiments cast considerable doubt on their
The mutual neutralizing effects of several re-.
lated viruses must also be considered. As an
example of this phenomena Dr. Andrewes cited
an African disease similar to Yellow Fever whose
virus in the presence of Yellow Fever Viruses
nulled any effect.
By vaccinating white mice with living virus
filtrate, very good results were obtained, anq
the immunity was almost perfect. However, whn
white mice were again injected with similar virus
filtrate from ferrets, the effect was negligible.
This was discouraging, as obviously if the anal-
gous experiment is to be applied to the cure of
human influenza, virus filtrate from animals, not
humans,. must be employed.
Actual experiments carried out on volunteers
have not produced any conclusive evidence, but.
results so far have been rather pessimistic, Dr.
Andrewes indicated. Soldiers treated in England
by Dr. Andrewes with formalized viruses showed.

Educational Conference Ehd With Speech
Asking Children Be Taught Pleasantly
Closing the Educational Conference Week
sponsored by the School of Education and under
the direction of Dean J. B. Edmonson, Dr. Fritz
Redl of the School of Education spoke yesterday
on "Mental Hygiene Aspects of the Reading
If anywhere, it is in the area of children's
books that most people are ready to give the
illusion that education must necessarily be pain-
ful and unpleasant, Dr. Redl claimed. He empha-
sized the need to accept the possibility of educat-
ing and influencing through channels which
would have seemed upsetting to the old fashioned
school room approach.
In the field of influencing the reading habits
of children, Dr. Redl pointed out, there is urgent
need of more specific knowledge and insight.
Opening the morning's session, Dr. Henry J.
Otto, educational director of the W. K. Kellogg
Foundation, told of "Implications of Research
Findings for Administration of Elementary Edu-
Dr. Otto listed seven aspects of elementary
school organization, giving a summary of pub-
lished research on each. Included were the prob-
lems of organization of districts, length of school
year, the kindergarten, annual vs. semi-annual
promotion, acceleration or grade skipping, de-
partmentalization of teaching and homework of
Speaking of reading improvement for grades
four to six, Dr. Irving H. Anderson demonstrated
a new type of motion picture film for increasing
the reading rate. These films, by projecting
phrases or sections of the-lines of print accord-
ing to the pattern of movements and pauses of
the eyes of the skilled reader offer a means of
"pacing" the eyes of a poor reader so that he
may learn to acquire the habits of eye movements
of the skilled reader.

Linguistics Institute
Chicago Professor Shows Similarities Between
Indo-European And Algonkian Languages
With occasional references to similarities in
Indo-European languages, Prof. Leonard Bloom-
field of the department of linguistics of the
University of Chicago last night sketched in out-
line the complicated picture of word-composi-
tion and word-derivation in the Algonkian Indian
languages. The discussion was the third of a
series of five weekly lectures on comparative Al-
gonkian by Dr. Bloomfield.
Four principal types of word-composition ap-
pear in Algonkian, resulting always in something
which is partly word and partly phrase, but
which generally functions as a single word. One
type is formed by a particle plus a noun, as in
Cree "wapi-kakwa" (white porcupine). A pos-
sessive prefix is sometimes inserted in such a
word, though, as is shown by comparing Meno-
minee "oskeh-mahkesenan" (new mocassins)
with "oskeh-nemakesenan," which includes the
possessive element "ne" and thus means "my new
A second type is composed of noun plus a
noun, with loss of the normal noun ending on
the first member. "Manetowa" (manitou) is
changed, Professor Bloomfield pointed out, in
the compound "manitowi-wikiyapi" (a mani-
A third type, called "exocentric') compounds,
is similar to one in Sanskrit in that the resulting
compound functions as a particle and not a
noun; and the fourth type, most complicated of
all, is' formed by one or more particles plus a
verb. As examples Professor Bloomfield gave
"nenewaw" (I saw him), but "nekes-pesnewaw"
(I saw him on the hither way; i.e., I saw him
on my way here), and "kayes-pesnewak" (having
seen him on the way here).
Secondary derivation, in which a stem and a
suffix are united to form a new word, was the
second phase of Professor Bloomfield's subject.
Here, too, several types occur. The suffix "-w" is
added to noun-stems to form agent-nouns, for
instance, and the suffix "-n" makes abstract
nouns. Thus the Fox "pashkesikewa" (he makes
things explode) becomes "pashkesikani" (a gun).
Or Menominee "-apoh," a suffix meaning liquid-
ity, is added to the word for fire, and the result
is "eskotewapoh," firewater, that is, whisky.
The most involved compound forms are found,
Dr. Bloomfield concluded, in the verbs that re-
sult from secondary derivation. Especially com-
plicated are the intransitive verbs, which he
illustrated briefly with examples of the peculiar
reflexives and reciprocals. With special refer-
ence to English he explained also the Algonkian
transitive verbs that take two objects, very much
like the English verb with both a dative and a
direct object.
-from the University Biological Station
The Pteris Gardens Club House of the Uni-
versity Biological Station Saturday night was
the scene of the first annual Commencement
Excercises of the Douglas Lake Acadamey. Head-
master George M. LaRue, as portrayed by Bob
Johnson, presented to the assembled camp the
graduating class of 1928, only eleven years be-
hind schedule. There was no valedictorian in
the class, but the second brightest person in the
class, Gertie Butch Goon gave the salutitorian
address, entitled "Why I Am So Smart." Gertie,
who without the mortar-board and horn-rimmed
glasses is known as Barbara Benedict, was pre-
3ented with a Fly Bait key made of sticky paper,
and a degree "Extra-super-magna-cum-laude-
and-funnier" in recognition of her merits!
Professor Fiddle D.D. as depicted by Chris
Zerafonetis gave the Commencement Address,
"Democracy and Mother Nature," after the Reed
sisters, Ivy, Bamby, and Booy (Mrs. Dendy, Miss
Briscoe, and Miss Shirmer) had rendered "Old
Black Joe" on their home-made bamboo flutes.
Kudos were given to members of the audience,
including the degree of M.A.T.B. (Master of
Arts in Bull Throwing) to Professor Steere of the
Botany Department, and one degree of D.R.L.

(Doctor of Romance Language) to newly-weds
Dr. and Mrs. Bob Campbell. Dr. Welch of the
Zoology Department received the degree of
D.N.E. - Doctor of Nauttical Engineering - for
the remarkable feat of showing his students how
to start an outboard while the boat was still
attached to the dock - precipitating "doc" and
dock into the coolish waters.
Gretchen Beardsly, otherwise known as that
sweet girl graduate, Iva Past, gave the class
phrophesy, and Helen Hay, the chairman of the
party committee, unveiled the class gift in her
role of Queenie Bee, the president of the grad-
uating class. Ths magnificient gift was a tin
wash-tub labelled "Hot Bath!" Following the
program, there were refreshments on the Pteris
and dancing for all in the club-house.
Thursday night found all of Manville grabbing
shovels and zooming off, ten to a car, to fight
a fire which had gotten started across the lake
and which was threatening the camp property.
Led by the forestry crew with the fire-fighting
equipment (although "Dutch Lenhardt nearly
missed the fire, due to a previous engagement
with a sunset) Fred Bromund, Eddie Phillips,
Gene Kenaga, Harry Wilcox, Bob Jaedekke, and
most of the rest of Manville got the fire under
control in short order, although one bright lad
was heard to remark, "Hey, stop putting that
fire out, I can't see what I'm doing!"
Friday the camp welcomed three distinguished
visitors, Director of the Summer Session Hopkins,
Dean Dana of the Forestry School, and Dean
Yoakum of the Graduate School who visited the
Station in their tour of inspection. Everybody
is now looking forward to the Grange Party next
Saturday night. There will be Bingo, with "white

A professor given to punning
contributes this:
"That must have been a mis-
take in the D.O.B. the other day.

Alh, well, better he got it

CHATTER: Ever wonder what be-
came of James Albert Boozer, the
fast talking Southern lad who put
out "What's Doing" and edited a
Summer Session magazine last year?
Well, Joe Gies, back from job-hunt-
ing in New York, brings the answer.
Boozer is really going places in the
journalistic world. He's with Trans-
Radio Press . . . as Women's Editor!
Roy Heath, ex-Daily columnist, is
in town and tells about flying over
the Squalus just as the sub plunged
to the surface and then dove once
again to. the bottom. He's got a job
on the Boston Herald-Traveler and
did an interview with ex-heavyweight
champ Jack Sharkey for this column.
It'll be printed soon . . .
Steve Sebo, who went to high
school in Battle Creek with
Michigan's Stark Richie, is in
Summer School . . . he was a
football and baseball star at
M.S.C.. . . and is now coaching
at Petoskey . . . Jake Dahgren
...who was the main factor in
State's victories over Michigan in
'35 and '36 has also seen the light
. . .he too is summer sessioning
with the opposition . .
Just before Daily appointments
came out for 1936-37 no one had any
idea who'd get the job. There were
more competent men than ever before
in the paper's history. Fred Warner
Neal, who temporarily joined Trans-
Radio Press when he graduated and
is now with an Omaha paper, had
written more copy than anyone else
in years. Richard Hershey, editor of
the Summer Daily in 1937 and now a
law student, has been outstanding.
Clinton B. (Pat) Conger, son of a
famous foreign correspondent and
now doing remarkable work for the
Detroit Bureau of United Press, had
given the city its best coverage in
history. Marshall Shullman, later
with the Detroit News, was one of
the half-dozen best editorial writers
the paper had ever known.
When the announcement was made
the staff was stunned. The new man-
aging editor: Elsie Pierce, the first
woman to win the post since world
war days. Now' Mrs. Edward Begle,
Elsie dropped into the office recently
to say hello and see how things were
going and we were reminded of the
days of her editorship. None of the
honor societies knew what to do when
she was chosen-it was part of the
ritual to choose the editors but they
didn't dare ask Elsie to duck-waddle
up and down the Union tower seven

She took over her job and made a
success of it. The paper showed edi-
torial courage and all went well until
City Editor Fred Neal suddenly re-
signed, charging his work had been
censored. Elsie took over the job her-
self, if we remember correctly, and
did that well, too.dThen, after gradu-
ation, she figured she'd shown her
sex how to handle the job and opened
the path for other girls on the staff.
Content, she quit newspaperwork and
