Early Maps Displayed
In Clements Library
A collection of our country's ear-
liest maps are on display at the Wil-
liam L. Clements Library in con-.
junction with the American Culture
and Institution Series being con-
ducted by the Graduate School.
Among the most interesting of
these maps are the one showing the
British plans of attack in their at-
tempt to quell the colonists in the
Revolutionary War.

The Trojans, leaders of the Nation-
al League in the Intramural Softball
League in the Intramural Softball
Tournament, were unable to retain
undisputed possession of first place
by virtue of a victory over the Fac-
ulty on forfeit, yesterday.
In the most exciting game of the
day the Blitzers nosed out the Ten
Old Men 10 to 9, and at the same
time enable'd themselves to keep
within one game of the Trojans.
The Blitzer's victory was due main-
ly to the timely hitting of their
pitchers, as Parker the starting pit-
cher hit a home run to tie the score
at nine all and Emonds, who relieved
Parker won his own game by poking
out a single in the last inning and
at the same time driving in the win-
ning run. Seely was behind the plate
for the winners while Loebs and
Munger were the Ten Old Men's bat-
The Wolverines moved themselves
into the .500 class by virtue of their
10 to 8 victory over the last place
Legal Eagles.

Nine Students
In Advanced
Nine of the Michigan students who
completed their primary CAA flight
training program last semester are
now taking the advanced program
at Wayne County Airport, where they
are flying faster planes and learning
military acrobatics, and night and
instrument flying.
They are: Warren Robinson, Ken
Williams, Richard Fogg, John Starr,
David Spengler, James Kehoe, Jerry
Michael, Harold Eisele, and James
The Michigan students make up a
group of 20, with 8 from Wayne Uni-
versity, and one from Jackson, Flint,
and Port Huron.
They are being trained on Ryan
ST's, a class two plane with a cruis-
ing speed of 120 mph. They learned
the ABC's of flying on the Ann Arbor
airport's tiny Piper Cubs, a class one
plane under 1,300 pounds and with
a top speed of 65. miles per hour.
John P. Vivian Jr., University pro-
duced flyer, has gone into a special
Navy training course at Grosse Ile,
and Byrl Schaubert is scheduled for
army training.
The primary course (in Ann Arbor)
and the Wayne County advanced
program both lead to private licenses
and regular army or naval training
is given out only at regular Govern-
ment fields after passing a stiffer
physical examination than the civil-
ian license requires.
But Washington has the names of
every student, Dwight S. Reybolds,
flight instructor, pointed' out, and in
case of need the students would "only
have to acclimate themselves to the
greater speed and weight of fightnig
planes to making suitable war-time

gratulations on addresses before the Inter-American Q onference at Havana. Hull has been elected president
of the conference's peace commission and Dr. Melo was chosen to head the neutrality commission.

American statecraft is once again
on the upswing after-a decline of 50
years extending from the Civil War
to 1915, declared Prof. Dumas Malone,
Director of the Harvard University
Press, before the Graduate 1 Study
Program in American Culture and
Institutions Wednesday .
Prof. Malone cited four. periods in
United States political history which
illustrate the rise and decline of
American statecraft. The periods
are the colonial times; 1765-1815, the
revolutionary age; 1815-1865, the
period of internal strife, and 1865-
19 5, the era of greatest expansion.
In the colonial age there were no
bright political stars, but during the
strife of ,the revolution there were
many great names. Franklin, Wash-
ington, and Jefferson are some of the
greatest. The last two periods saw
a gradual decline as the attraction
of a statesman's careersdiminished
and other fields, such as literature
and art, reached their greatest
Naval Reservist
Training Begins
Here For Eighty
Eighty young sea-dogs will begin
a four-year training course in sea-
manship this fall with the open-
ing of the University naval reserve
officers' training unit,
Offering instruction in all sub-
jects taught at Annapolis, the course
will lead to ensignships in the U. S.
naval reserve and qualify the stu-
dents for special appointments to the
U. S. naval academy in Annapolis
and the naval air station, in Pen-
sacola, Fla.
Under the leadership of Capt. A.
L. Davidson, now with the U. S. S.
Omaha in Pacific waters, the young
midshipmen will be taken each year
on summer cruises to far-flung ports.
Captain Davidson, serving in the
capacity of professor of naval sci-
ence and tactics, will head the train-
ing unit, and will be assisted by two
commissioned officers and four nav-
al reservists called to active duty.
The training course will cover nav-
igation, naval history, seamanship,
communications, ordnance, gunnery,
naval engineering, naval tactics, ad-
ministration, aviation and military
President Alexander G. Ruthven
has been empowered to select three
members of the Michigan naval unit
for appointments to Annapolis on the
basis of competitions against naval
reservists from the ten other college
units in the country.

American Statecraft As Career
Is On Upswing, Malone Declares

heights, he pointed out. The politi-
cal extinction of the South, which
contributed many of the great men
in public life, also aided in the de-
Dr. Malone named Washington,
Lincoln, Jefferson, Benjamin Frank-
lin, and Woodrow Wilson as the
greatest of all American statesmen.
Washington, he said, was the sym-
bol of independence; Lincoln, the
symbol of frontier democracy; and
Jefferson, a symbol of the democ-
racy of the scholar. Franklin was
the first real American internation-
alist, but his internationalism was
second to that of Woodrow Wilson,
whom Dr. Malone called the First
Citizen of the world.
'All-Stars' To Play

Prof. Hahn Speaks
At Linguist Meeting
From an ancient language spoken
thousands of years ago Prof. E. Ade-
laide Hahn of Hunter College yes-
terday offered befoer the Linguistic

termines the grammatical function
of words in that language.
