A Metropolis Is Re-Discovered

As Excursionists Invade Detroit

Latest Reports Hold That
City Yet Stands Despite
Visitation Of Strangers
When more than 60 strangers to
the city of Detroit get together to
acquaint themselves with that fourth
largest metropolis of these, our Unit-
ed States, plenty of action may be
expected, and plenty of action there
was when participants in the second
Summer Session Excursion landed
yesterday in the midst of the town
in one fell swoop.
The Detroit Institute of Arts fell
first victim to the crowd. After dis-
persal through the labrinthic halls,
recommendations ran rife with each
meeting. "You must see Michelan-
gelo's' sketch of Adam's arm" and
"You shouldn't miss theaRaphael
fragment" were typical, and everyone
gazed at the Rivera frescoes, mar-
velling at the technique of that mas-
ter of muralists.

Prof. Kennedy
To Talk Here
On Linoruistics
Yale Scholar To Tell Of
Chinese Word Order
In SpeechWednesday
In the first of two events on the
week's program for the Linguistic In-
stitute, Prof. George A. Kennedy of
Yale University and of the Summer
Session faculty will lecture at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday on "The Fundamen-
tals of Chinese Word Order."
At the regular luncheon conference
Thursday Dr. Murray B. Emeneau
will discuss "Phonemes and Mor-
phophonemes of Kolami."
Professor Kennedy's lecture will be
of unusual importance to persons in-
terested in the English language, ac-
cording to Prof. C. C. Fries, director
of the Institute. Almost complete
loss of inflections in Modern English,
Dr. Fries points out, has made it
similar in many respects to Chinese,
so that many structural analogies
may be profitably observed.
Similar help in understanding
some of the phonetic problems of
English may be secured from a study
of the sound structure of a quite dif-
ferent language, Professor Fries says,;
and such an opportunity will be pre-
sented by Dr. Emeneau in his dis-
cussion of the phonemes, or minimal
meaningful sounds, of a language of
southern India. This language,
which is not at all related to the
Indo-European group, Dr. Emeneau
studied during research work in In-
dia by analyzing the speech of na-
tive users of the Kolami tongue.

Turning from comedy as seen in
their first offering, the Players will

life of the Dutch fishing folk and
is set against the background of the
exciting and uncertain sea.

Tomorrow; Production
Units Will Be Viewed
Third of the series of Summer
Session excursions, a trip to the Ford
plant in Dearborn on the River
Rouge will be conducted from 12:45
p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday by Prof.
Carl J. Coe, Director of Summer
Sessions Excursions.
Reservations must be made by 5
p.m. tomorrow in the Summer Ses-
sion office, Room 1213 Angell Hall.

Round trip bus fare, the only ex-
pense, will amount to $1.25. Students
wishing to follow the bus in private
cars, thus saving the fare, are in-
vited to do so.
The Ford plant, a marvel of mass
production, covers an area of about
1,000 acres on which are located
blast furnaces, open hearth furnaces,
foundry, steel mill, rolling mill, mo-
tor assembly plant, body plant, glass
plant, final assembly line, ore^ un-
loading docks and numerous other
units. At full capacity, more than
100,000 workers are employed.
The party taking the tour will visit
the motor assembly plant, the final
assembly line, the open hearth fur-
naces and the rolling mill.
This program will provide oppor-
tunity for observing typical phases
of the Ford industrial technique:
extreme specialization of labor, the
continuous conveyor belt system, ef-
ficiency in the standardized proces-

Everything in official quarters in-
dicated that Germany believes the
argument of "self-determination"
holds as good today for Danzig as it
did for Austria, the Sudetenland, and
Memel, and that Britain will not
dare oppose it.
Crisis Is Different
There is at least one big differ-
ence between the situation this sum-
mer and that of a year ago preceding
the drive against Czechoslovakia.
Now German propaganda is not driv-
ing headlong - against the Poles with'
screaming tales about atrocities and
with threats of action, as it did
against the Czechs.
This time Britain and her newly-
welded bloc of allies are the main
The Foreign Office categorically
denied today that Hitler or his first
aide, Field Marshall Hermann Wil-
helm Goering, or any other leading
Nazi personality planned to go to
Danzig. The Foreign Office said that
in any case none of them would go
until after the Free City formally
was annexed by the Reich.
Gamelin Is Recalled
In Case Of Trouble
PARIS. Jtly 1.-OP)-Premier Dal-
adier today called General Maurice
Gustave Gamelin back to Paris to
keep France's armed forces ready in
event of trouble over the Free City
of Danzig.
The gray-haii'ed soldier who com-
mands all armed forces of the na-
tion cancelled his proposed tour of
Corsica to return to his Paris head-
quarters over the weekend from an
inspection of French defenses on the
Italian frontier.
_His recall to the capital followed'
a three-hour meeting of the cabinet
with President Albert Lebrun during
which Daladier received unanimous
approval of his announced determina-
tion to back Poland if she resisted any
German attempt to sei-e Danzig.
Bonnet said that the recent speech-.
es of Daladier and British Foreign
Secretary Lord Halifax were "warn-
ing enough" to Germany that both
France and Britain would carry out
pledges to Poland.

Order A 'Joke'
Charged Father - In - Law
With Prisoning Bride
KALAMAZOO, July, 1.-(/P)-Pet-
er H. Leavell, '42, bridegroom of four
days, said tonight that his obtain-
ing a court summons charging that
his father-in-law had "unlawfully
imprisoned and detained" his bride
was "just a joke."
He obtained the order at Madison,
Wis., against Russell S. Knappen,
Tulsa, Okla., oil company executive.
Knappen and his daughter, Mar-
garet Anne, were reported enroute
home to, Tulsa from Madison.
Leavell said "that will depend"-
but didn't say upon what - when
asked if he would have the action
dismissed. Neither would he explain
what prompted the "joke."

Hull Declares
Country Needs.
Neutrality Bill
Administration's Measure
Will Encourage World
Peace, Secretary Asserts
WASHINGTON, July 1. --(P)-
Voicing a new plea for approval of
the Administration's neutrality pro-
gram, Secretary of State Hull point-
edly told Congress today that it was
needed not alone for this country's'
own interests but to encourage world
The Administration program, he
said in a statement, "is not only best
calculated to keep this Nation out
of war in the event war comes, but
also, what is all important at this
time, best calculated to make a far
greater contribution than could the
present law or its equivalent toward
the discouragement of the outbreak
of war."
The Secretary's statement was,
made at a press conference, but it
was obvious that it was directed as
well to Capitol Hill where a coali-
tion of Republicans and Democrats
*in the House ripped the Administra-
tion's measure to pieces last night
and approved an embargo on arms
sales to nations at war.
Representatives Vorys (Rep.-Ohio),
who sponsored the amendment, ex-
plained that he wanted to forbid sales
of "lethal" weapons, but was willing
to permit sales of airplanes, oil, cop-
per and other products which might
be embargoed under the existing
In some quarters Hull's statement
was interpreted as a warning that
failure to repeal the embargo com-
pletely would encourage dissatisfied
nations to aggression, since the arms
factories of this country would be
closed to their victims.,
Chairman Pittman (Dem.-Nev.) of
the Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee put this viewpoint in blunt
language by asserting that the House
members who frustrated the Admin-
istration's wishes "have really adop-
ted a policy of Help Hitler."'
"If this encouragemnt results in
war in the next thirty days, there
will be more thoughtful consideration
of the problems," he said in a state-
Pittman said he endorsed in entire-
ty the views expressed by Hull, but
at the same time indicated a belief
that there would have to be some
concessions to the House if any bill
was to tbe enacted.
Laskey Is Hurt

Insists On A Continuance
Of Devaluation Powers;
Administration Rallies
Taft, Vandenberg
Continue Attacks
WASHINGTON, July 1. -4P)-
President Roosevelt was reported to-
day to have taken a "no surrender"
position in his twin battles with a
rebellious Congress over monetary
and neutrality legislation.
Friends said that apparently the
Chief Executive had no thought of
compromise on either .issue. His last
public word on the monetary ques-
tion was an insistence that his powers
be continued, and Secretary Hull,
only today, reasserted the Adminis-
tration's demand for neutrality legis-
lation of the sort which the House
turned down last night.
Administration leaders had the ad-
vantage of a long holiday weekend to
rally their shattered forces in an
effort to put through the Senate next
Wednesday legislation to revive the
President's power to devalue the dol-
lar. and continue operation of the
$2,000,000,000 stabilization fund.
Minton Is Optimistic
Both sides admitted that the re-
sult was in doubt, though Se ator
Minton (Dem.-Ind.) predicted that
by the time the vote was taken Presi-
dent Roosevelt's friends would be
able to count enough noses to assure
adoption of a conference °report al-
ready approved by the House. On the
other hand, Senator Taft (Rep.-O)
said he believed the report imight be
A controversy within the monetary
controversy °Vas the ontention by
some legislators that a favorable Sen-
ate vote Wednesday would not revive
the monetary powers which expired
at the stroke of midnight Friday.
Need New Legislation
Senators Taft and Vandenberg
(Rep.-Mich.), spearheads of the Re-
publican attack on the devaluation
authority, asserted today that it
would be necessary for the Roosevelt
forces to introduce entirely new legis-
lation, taking it through the routine
channels of Congress.
The pending legislation was so writ-
ten as to extend the expiring powers.
A vote on it before the midnight hour
was balked by debate by Republicans
and some Democrats which dragged
out the session to 1:53 a..
Before adjournment, it was agreed
to have a vote at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Adams Disagrees
Taking .issue with Taft and Van-
denberg,'Senator Adams (Dem.-Colo.)
author of a Senate-approved amend-
ment to the bill which would have
put an,. end to the devaluation sec-
tion, said that if the Senate ap-
proves the pending legislation there
could be no question as to the Presi-
dent's right to cut an additional nine
cents of gold value out of the dollar
any time in the next two years.
Adams stood with Taft and Van-
denberg, however, on the contention
that the $2,000,000 stabilization fund,
set up to maintain this country's cur-
rency on a desired level with those
of other countries, could not be re-
vived by the pending legislation.

Cosmic Rays May Cast Light-
On Inner Mysteries Of Physics

Nobel Prize Winner Sees
Powerful Tool In Use
Of Cosmic Radiation

I Though the total energy received

Investigation of cosmic rays may!
give valuable information not only
as to the so-far unexplained origin
of the cosmic radiation itself, but
may also cast considerable light on
the subject of nuclear physics, Prof.
Enrico Fermi predicts.
Unwilling as most eminent scien-
tists to venture a guess into the fu-
ture, Professor Fermi is, however,
quite enthusiastic as to the future of
cosmic ray investigation and appli-
cation. He received the Nobel Prize
in physics last year for outstanding
work done in investigating the prop-
erties and effects of neutrons. Gen-

from cosmic radiation is very small,
this energy is so highly concentrated
that cosmic rays can be up to a mil-
lion times more powerful than those
produced by the cyclotron.,
Among these high-energy projec-
tiles a new elementary particle, the
mesotron, has been discovered. The
mesotron, although little is yet
known about it, appears to have a
mass intermediate between that of
the proton and the electron, and
carries either a positive or negative
Speculating on the function of this
particle, Professor Fermi quotes Yu-
kawa's theory according to which it
may be responsible for nuclear forces
in atoms. It may be in the same re-
lationship to the field of force re-
sponsible for nuclear binding as the
