House Passes E
Bill Requiring
NLRB Inquiry
Five Man Investigating
Committee Is Created
To Study Amendments
WASHINGTON, July 20. -(R)-
The House today voted an extensive
inquiry into the National Labor Re-
lations Board, approving. over the
protests of a powprful Democratic
bloc the creation of a five-man in-
vestigating committee with full sub-
poena powers to study the whole
N.L.R.B. set-up and make any recom-
mendations for legislation.
The action, which carried the
Chamber by a vote of 253 to 135,
came as a blow to Chairman Norton
(Dem.-N.J.) of the House Labor Com-
mittee, which has been considering
amendments to the act since May 4.
Mrs. Norton denounced the reso-
lution of Representative Smith (Dem-
Va.) as one which would "usurp" the
powers of her committee, and shouted
to the House that Smith himself "is
the . last man in the world to pass
upon labor legislation."
Bloomfield Speaks
On Language Study
Of Algonkian Indian
Prof. Leonard Bloomfield, chair-
man of the department of linguistics
of the University of Chicago, tonight
will deliver the third of his series of
lectures upon the comparative study
of the Algonkian languages. The lec-
ture is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the
third floor amphitheatre of the Rack-
ham Building.
Having presented the outstanding
features of Algonkian sounds and in-
flections in the preceding lectures,
Dr. Bloomfield will turn tonight to
a discussion of word composition and
derivation in Algonkian.
This lecture is of particular im-
portance to students of European
languages, said Prof. C. C. Fries,
director of the Linguistic Institute,
because the methods employed by
Dr. Bloomfield with living but un-
written languages are the same as
those used by Indo-Europeanists in
the nineteenth century in the study
of Indo-European etymology. .

Success in training the child for
adjustment to life situations comes
not only through the type of influ-
ence given him through games and
readings, but mainly through the ex-
emplification in the teacher of what
it is hoped will be developed in the
Hence the great importance to
each pupil and to the community of
the emotional maturity and stability
of the teacher. And it is the respon-
sibility of the community, Dr. Paul
Jordan of the department of psychi-
atry said yesterday in a Summer Ses-
sion lecture, to see that some of the
causes of fatigue, depression, irrita-
bdlity and other emotional problems
in the teacher which affect the pupil
relationship are prevented.
Pointing out that teachers as a
class are fundamentally of a higher
emotionally stability, Dr. Jordan ex-
plained that certain stresses encoun-
tered by everybody tend to reflect

under certain requirements, and the
possibility of retirement on a pen-
sion. He suggested that teachers be
stimulated to take graduate work
periodically to help decrease feelings
of inadequacy to perform the work;
that teachers be enabled to marry
under certain circumstances; and
that personal counselors for the
teachers be provided.
The "real and only" function of
education, Dr. Jordan stated, is the
training of the child so that he will
be able to react successfully to the
complex problems and frustrations
with which he will be confronted.
This is the composite result of the
experience both in the home and in
the school, he said, and where cer-
tain necessary and desirable quali-
ties are not encouraged in the home,
they must be brought out by the
