Vs. The Business Man...
T HE SHARP CLEAVAGE between
business men and theoretical eco-
nomists in regard to the President's proposed
$3,86'0,000,000 lending program appears a more
damning indictment of the scheme than any
epithets hurled by the former.
Bankers, manufacturers and presidents of
local boards of commerce universally denounce
the latest edition of "pump-priming" as a "vote
buyer," a "shot in the arm" whose only effect
will be to hasten national bankruptcy.
Economists, pn the other hand, chorus ap-
proval. It is, they insist, sound policy-the "only
road left open to recovery."
The truth, as usual, lies somewhere in be-
By and large the business man's chronic fear
of government investment is unfounded. There
is, after all, nothing really alarming in an "un-
balanced budget." In the first place, if the
Federal budget were drawn up after the ortho-
dox business fashion, capital expenditures would
be balanced by assets and no paper deficit would
rear its ugly head.
Equally mistaken is the notion that a govern-
ment can spend its way to bankruptcy. After all
a government is not a business enterprise in
competition with others. In the last analysis it
is the national economy itself and can scarcely
consume more than it produces, barring disin-
Fears that government investment may sound
the death knell of private enterprise likewise
vanish when exposed to light. Confined to low
cost housing, sewers bridges and other fields
phunned by private investors, the government
only steps in where the business man fears to
tread. And the secondary "wave" of purchasing
power which follows federal capital expenditure
does far more to bolster private enterprise than
to weaken it.
The economists are generally as correct in
their praises of "pump-priming" theory as the
business leaders are wrong in their scorn. Con-
tinued doses of investment are indeed necessary
to bolster employment in the heavy industries
and maintainpurchasing power in the economy
as a whole. It makes little difference whether
the investment funds come from public or pri-
vate sources, as long as the amount is sufficient
to prod the nation's productive forces into full
utilization of their tremendous capacity.
And America's business men are not, at pres-
ant, feeding enough fuel to this economic ma-
chine to tap its potential output.
How to increase the "prosperity to invest" in
order to transforni the stagnant pools of private
savings into abundant streams of national in-
come becomes, then, the key riddle for economists
to solve. And they are correct in asuming that
government investment performs this task by
spuring consumption and employment only when
they admit the necessity of wooing business
confidence as a prelude to the spending pro-
For despite the phenomena of increased de-
mand for his products immediately flowing from
the newly-primed pump, the business man will
balk at expanding his plant and payroll with
what he believes to be the horrible spectres of
huge federal deficit, heavy taxes and "national
bankruptcy" in the offing. Whether his fears
are justified or not is quite beside the point. As
long as they exist, they impose an obstacle to
investment and as such doom any spending
spree to failure.

Dr. Heber Curtis Demonstrates University's Im-
portant Films of Activity on the Sun's Surface.
Films of the sun that are the unique contri-
bution of the University to the science of astron-
omy and which have won world-wide attention
for their importance in opening new fields of,
astronomical information were shown and ex-
plained yesterday by Prof. Heber D. Curtis,
director of the University observatories, in the
second Summer Session lecture.
The pictures were taken at the University's
McMath-Hulbert Observatory at Lake Angelus,
about one and one-half miles north of Pontiac.
The observatory and equipment were construct-
ed by Dr. McMath and Dr. Hulbert. Motion pic-
tures of moving celestial bodies were taken
there first, and the filming of the sun was
started in 1936.
The films were taken in the 50-foot Lake
Angelus solar tower, where a large telescope re-
flects the sun's rays, and they are spread out in
to a spectrum. The actual filming is then done
In one kind of light from the spectrum, generally
calcium or hydrogen rays, Dr. Curtis explained.
The complicated and delicate mechanisms for
bringing the rays to the camera lens and for
taking the exposures were developed chiefly by
An average of two exposures a minute was
taken in the films of the activities on the sun's
surface, Dr. Curtis said. When these are run
off at normal projector speed of 16 exposures
a second, the speed of the activities is com-
pressed by a factor of about 500 in the demon-
stration of the results.
Most of the films were of the vast solar sur-
face "streamers" or prominences. These great
billowy eruptions, 200,000 miles wide and about
20,000 miles above the surface of the sun, demon-
strate the intense energy given off by that
body, Dr. Curtis pointed out. About five new
types of prominence have been discovered through
the photography process, classified by such fac-
tors as form and position.
Dr. Curtis pointed out that except for the
violent eruptive type of prominence, in 95 per
cent of the cases the motions, which are at a
speed of from 30 to 400 miles a second, are down-
ward. It is believed, he said, that the matter goes
off the sun's surface in invisible form, then be-
comes luminous and is attracted downward
again by solar attraction. Dr. Curtis also said
that it is believed the prominences consist of
actual matter, thinner than air.Previous theories
were that they were displayed by atomic dis-
Concluding with a discussion of the ultimate
value of the photographic studies of the sun, Dr.
Curtis pointed out that the filming has greatly
increased knowledge of the stars. Infinite as
is the universe and distant the millions of stars,
he said, knowledge of the sun, which is just an
ordinary star, enables astronomers to know what
processes are going on throughout the entire
Organized as a subdivision of the College of
Literature, Science and the Arts in 1892, the
Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies
became a separate school of the University in
1912. Enrollment has now reached 4,048 students.
Members of the faculty are drawn from other
schools and colleges.
Degrees which may be received from the Grad-
uate School are master of arts, master of science,
doctor of philosophy, doctor of science and doc-
tor of public health. Advanced professional de-
grees may also be obtained.
In addition to its regular curricula, the Gradu-.
ate School maintains the Institute for Human
Adjustment (Speech clinic), Institute of Public
and Social Administration, located in Ann Arbor
and Detroit, and the Center for Graduate Study
The College of Literature, Science and the Arts
was opened 98 years ago in 1841. From a small
group of students it has grown to an enrollment
of 7,666. At present 305 faculty members teach
courses in the 27 different departments of in-
struction, including archaeology, astronomy, Eng-
lish, romance languages, German, journalism,
Latin, history, Oriental languages, economics,
history, geography, political science, geology,
philosophy, mathematics, psychology, sociology
and many others.
The literary college consists of a four year
course and leads to a bachelor of arts or bachelor
of science degree. Several other special curricula
are included in the school.

knack of antagonizing business can achieve re-

An advertisement in yesterday's Daily pointed
out that an MGM special called "Within TheI
Law" opens today at the Majestic with a castI
headed by Ruth Hussey. And therein lies a
story, for it was only a few years ago that the
same Ruth Hussey was the star of Play Produc-
tion presentations on campus.1
A Providence, R.I. girl, she made her biggestI
'University hit in "The Last of Mrs. Cheyney."
A modernized version of "Uncle Tom's Cabin"I
met with success here also. In Hollywood she
failed to click but finally talked her way into a
test that won her the lead with Robert Young inI
"Rich Man, Poor Girl." Then she did "Spring

Working at the same lot in cinema-town is
S. Sylvan Simon, today Hollywood's youngest
director and six years ago a student here. The,
28-year-old Simon majored in speech while in
Ann Arbor and was a Phi Bete and Kappa Nu.
Simon went to school as long or longer than any
other Michigan man-he'd been left a bequest
which provided an income as long as he coh-
tinued his education but automatically stopped
when he quit school.
Aline MacMahon, the intelligent and compe-'
tent actress who appeared in Ann Arbor last
spring, was Simon's aunt. She got him a movie
break with Universal after he had directed
"Girls in Uniform" and several other plays. He
did "A Girl With Ideas," "Prescription for Ro-
mance," "The Nuse From Brooklyn," "The
Crime of Dr. Hallett" and "The Road to Reno"
for them and then went over to MGM after
Mervyn LeRoy liked the way he directed an
actress' test. So far he's done half a dozen
pictures for Muggum, including one, "Spring
Madness," that featured Ruth Hussey.

Another collegian to cross the divide separat-
ing professional and amateur actors was Mar-
tha Scott. She came to Michigan from a hick
town of 50, Gee's Creek, Missouri. While here she
made a real success under Valentine Windt's
direction and decided upon a professional career.
Her Emily Webb in the Pulitzer prize-winning
"Our Town" brought a dozen screen tests-and a
gossip columnist's prediction she would be Scar-
let. She wasn't, which is a good thing in our

nected with the theatre. Avery Hopwood, wh
contributed the prizes which make the Univer-
sity Mecca for the collegiate author, was a suc-
cessful writer of commercial plays, including
CHATTER: Ann Arbor played a part in the
real-life drama which ended the other day with
confessions by Mrs. Velma Baker Fink that she
staged a phoney kidnapping to hide the murder
of her 10-week-old son. The marriage which re-
sulted in the child's birth took place secretly at
Angola, Ind., on Nov. 28, 1935, after a couple of
kids named Velma Baker and Ervin Fink came
to this city to see a U of M football game and
decided they were too much in love to stay apart.
Later they Were divorced. Now Mrs. Fink faces

Members of the Tribe mount upon horses and,

hearty congratulations. Throughout the early
