also reports of alleged attacks by
Poles on German Nationals in Pom-

Outbreaks Reported
Accounts published on front pages
of newspapers charged that the Poles
had killed six Germans and seriously
wounded 21 others in 204 raids dur-

Conference Here Holds
Increased industrialization of Lat-
in American nation to raise standards
of living, stimulate trade and possibly
provide a new supply source of com-
modities previously exported from
such areas as Czechoslavakia was
urged yesterday in closing sessions of
the Conference on Economic Rela-
tions with Latin America.
Latin American peoples realize that
they can never develop a middle class,
raise the production of their work-
ers and increase their purchasing
power until they industrialize their
economies, it was pointed out by
George Wythe, Liaison Officer for
the United States Department of
Declaring that "they have accepted
the gospel of the machine," he de-
scribed the population as permeated
by the "spirit of enterprise" and sup-
ported the view advanced by John
Abbink, president of Business Pub-
lishers International Corporation,
that they have an excellent oppor-
tunity to export products cut off

In CollegesBy Autumn
LANSING, Aug. 2. -(P)- Col.
Floyd E. Evans, director of the Michi-
gan Board of Aeronautics, announced
today plans were being considered for
training more than 400 fliers in Mich-
igan. colleges during the next school
Colt Evans said ground school in-
struction- starting between Oct. 15
and Nov. 1 with flying instruction
starting between Oct. 15 and Nov. .
The flight training program is part
of a nation-wide project and will be
patterned after the trial program in
which the University of Michigan
took part last spring.
Requirements for regularly enrolled
students are that they must be be-
tween the ages of 18 and 25 and
capable of passing the strict physical
examination based on army air corps
Michigan colleges at which flight
training might be given if sought by
the school include:
University of Michigan, Michigan
State College, University of Detroit,
Wayne University, State Normal at
Ypsilanti, Adrian College, College of
Mines at Houghton, Mt. Pleasant
Teachers College, Kalamazoo Col-
lege, Wetsern State Teachers Col-
lege, Hillsdale, Alma, and Olviet Col-
lege and Lawrence Institute of Tech-
Accredited junior colleges include:
Bay City, Flint, Highland Park,
Grand Rapids, Jackson, Ironwood,
Port Huron, Muskegon Colleges and
Ferris Institute at Big Rapids, Cal-
vin College at Grand Rapids and
Hope College at Holland.

from other natiois by higher duties
on German products.
Industrialization should stimulate
trade by increasing markets Prof.
Clare E. Griffin, Dean of the Busi-
ness Administration School, pointed
out. It does this by raising, the
standard of living and hence the pur-
chasing power of the industrialized
country, he explained.
Increased imports of machinery
should offset any fall in the imports
of consumer commodities, other
members of the conference pointed
However Prof. William H. Wynne
of the economics department cau-
tioned against pushing on "young
countries" forms of industrialization
"for which they are not fitted." Such
a course would tend to lower the liv-
ing standards of the agricultural
class and thus act as a deterent to
trade, he pointed out. He advised
the promotion of "secondary indus-
tries" such as textiles.
Other delegates warned against un-
due subsidization of United States ex-
ports. The result, it was feared,
might drive Latin American consum-
ers to other markets.
Greater utilization of the oppor-
tunities for trade abounding in Lat-
in America was urged by Mr. Abbink.
The historic circle in east and west
commerce has closed and the new
frontiers of trade lie to the south, he
said. He cited the opportunities for
acquisition of agricultural and raw
materials as logical complements of
northern manufacture.
Prof. Max Handman of the eco-
nomics department warned against
the erection of tariff walls in the
process of world industrialization.
Present war preparation makes this
danger acute at present, he said.

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 12.--(M)-The
Young Democratic Club of America
went down the line for the New Deal
program in the 1940 campaign today
in concluding their three-day biennial
The convention adopted resolutions
urging President Roosevelt to "press
forward" with his liberal objectives
and recommending nomination of
progressive candidates next year fav-
oring his program. A New Dealer,
28-year-old Homer Mat Adams,
Springfield, Ill., was unamimously
elected President of the Young Demo-
crats for the next two years.
Although their constitution forbids
endorsement of candidates for the
Presidential nomination, the junior
Democrats applauded and cheered
Mayor Edward J. Kelly of Chicago
when he "demanded" that Roosevelt
run again.
Young Adams, assistant director of
the department of finance in Illi-
nois, said in his acceptance speech
the Young Democrats "demand genu-
ins wholehearted New Dealers" to
head the Democratic ticket in 1940.
Salvage Crew
Hoists Squalus
Up To_ Surface
Second Effort Successful
After Eighty-Two Day
Period Beneath Ocean
PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Aug. 12.-(iP)
-The U.S.S. Squalus, an ice-water
encased steel shroud for 26 men, was
reclaimed in history making fashion
by the Navy today from the 240-foot
depth to which the submarine sank
82 days ago.
In an operation that combined both'
beauty and a high degree of mathe-
matical precision, an expert salvage
crew first hoisted the flooded sub-
marine approximately 80 feet from
the ocean floor in a cradle of chains
festooned from 10 big lifting pon-
toons and then towed her slowly into
shallower water.
The shoreward progress of the
Squalus later was interrupted sud-
denly when she struck a pinnacle at
about low tide after being moved
nearly two miles, forcing the sal-
vagers to wait for a rise in the tide
to pull the vessel free.
A spontaneous cheer broke from
the half-naked sailors lining the rail
of the salvage ship Falcon when the
three big pontoons above the bow of
the Squalus finally broke water a few
minutes before 11 a.m. (EST) today
in a cascade of sparkling foam.
Not only was the sight beautiful-
the huge red and white lifting drums
leaping into the clear sunlight in
unison as though three figures had
suddenly become visible through the
spray of a gushing fountain-but it
meant the hardest part of probably
the toughest salvage job in Navy his-
tory had been conquered.

President Roosevelt lauded the
Purpose of the institute in the
following letter:
My Dear Dr. Ruthven:
I have learned with a great deal
of interest that 11 national or-
ganizations, cocerned with safe
and efficient highway use, are
sponsoring the second National
Institute for Traffic Safety Train-
ing. It is gratifying to know that
the regular training activities in
the traffic administration, en-
forcement, and engineering fields
are being supplemented by this
opportunity for others engaged in
traffic safety work to learn mod-
ern techniques and ways of re-
ducing the toll of traffic deaths
and injuries.
The problem of adjusting high-
way transportation to modern
conditions is of vital importance
to every citizen. A sure approach
to the solution is the training of
individuals who plan to make a
career of their work in various
fields of accident prevention. The

Textbook Lending Library Aids
Students Unable To Buy Books

He hadn't any money but, willing
to work and ingenious, he'd been able
to earn enough during summers to
put him through the University with
the help of board and room jobs.
Then business in his home town
slumped. He worked all summer,
worked hard, but his savings amount-
ed to a meager $20. Ahead of him
was his senior year. The University
would lend him tuition; he could
earn board and room. But where
would he get the expensive texts?
Someone told him of the Textbook
Lending Library. He applied for aid
-and received it. The library pro-
vided him with the five dollar text
he. needed and he was able to go
ahead with his studies.
That's a typical instance of how
the Textbook Lending Library has
aided financially embarrassed stu-
dents since it was established in
1936. Today, with more than 420
books available, it plays a role of
'growing importance. More than 200

him to one or two volumes. The
slip is presented at Angell Hall Study
Hall and he receives his books with
permission to keep them throughout
the semester.
In exceptional cases, Dean Walter
declared, the Library buys books
which are needed but not contained
on its shelves. The income from sev-
eral donations makes this possible.
The great majority of books for
the library were donated by students.
Increasingly, undergraduates have
given their texts at- the end of the
semester so that underprivileged fel-
lows might continue their education.
A special drive is currently under-
way urging Summer Session students
to donate their books. These, Dean
Walter declared, may be left at any
branch of the library.
"Summer Session enrollees can
perform an important service if they
will contribute their texts when they
finish with them," he said.
