French Colonies Refuse

To Abide



Stand On Isolation

Full Lawful Assistance
To Allies Is Advocated;
New Deal Is Censured
Calls For Sober
War Preparation
Convention Hall, Philadelphia,
June 25.---(/P)--Herbert Hoover em-
phatically impressed two prime ob-
jectives of party endeavor upon a
cheering Republican National Con-
vention tonight-oust the New Deal
and keep America at peace "unless
the Western Hemisphere is at-
At the same time, the former pres-
ident told the vast throng gathered
in this huge and resounding auditor-
ium that for America there was no
such thing as "isolation,"-that a
realistic view of foreign problems
'dictated that all lawful assistance
be extended to the Allies.
And, he cautioned against exag-
geration of "our immediate dangers."
The ocean is broad, Hoover told
Republican delegates massed on the
convention floor before him, and an
invader "must first pass our navy,"
a navy which is "strong enough to
stop anything in sight now."
At the very least, Hoover said,
"this ocean and our magnificent
navy give time for sober prepara-
Relentlessly, Hoover castigated the
New Deal for "following the suicide
road for liberty that led to disaster
in Europe." He said the Republican
Party "must at once undertake seven
stern tasks:
"We must develop and maintain
foreign policies that keep us out of
these wars unless we are attacked.
'We should facilitate all nations fight-
ing for their freedom in procuring
materials and munitions, but sub-
ject to definite limitations which
keep us out of war.
"We must -recall our people from
the flabbiness of the New Deal. We
must reestablish stamina, character
and ideals. We must regenerate hope
and confidence in America.,,
Hoover advanced down the center
aisle and the crowd broke into a
demonstration which made its pre-
vious outbursts seem tame. It was
notable more for its volume of sound
than duration for as quickly as the
former president had disappeared
among the notables of the speaker's
stage, it ended.
As soon as he was introduced the
shouting, stamping and applause
was renewed, in greater volume and
intensity. The demonstration roared
on and on, while Hoover stood at
the dais, smiling faintly and nodding
to one side and the other.

Davis Outlines
Story Of Rise
Of University
The University of Michigan or
Catholepistemiad as it was known in
1817 in the first ordinance providing
for its establishment and its subse-
quent development were sketched by
Prof. C. O. Davis of the School of
Education in the opening education
lecture yesterday.
Tracing the settling of the colonies,
Professor Davis pointed out the char-
acteristics of the provincial type of
early American education. The first
schools, he cited, were denomina-
tional in the 13 colonies. When the
Constitution was adopted, the indi-
vidual states began to provide for
higher education and the Northwest
Ordinance granting land to colleges
in the Midwest was put into effect.
Through the efforts of Judge
Woodward and other officials of the
Northwest Territory the first Univer-
sity of Michigan was established in
1817 for the 4,000 inhabitants of the
area that is now Michigan, Professor
Davis described.
Disappearing for a period of about
10 years, the University was set up
again in Ann Arbor opening its doors
to se/enty students and four profes-
sors, teaching some 45 courses. Prof.
Davis pictured in contract the growth
of jhe University to its present en-
rollment of approximately 24,000,
distributed among 13 schools and

Government negotiations with Henry
Ford for the mass production of air-

"The Critic," which is under the
general direction of Prof Valentine B.
Windt of the speech department, will

Commenting on the farce yesterday
Professor Windt asserted that the
play's revival is especially approp-
riate at this time because of an in-
creased nationwide interest in the
life of England in the 18th century.
Theatre groups all over the country
are doing revivals of Sheridan and

of this period, he said.
FDR Approves
Hugle Tax Laws
For New Arms
Existing Taxes Increased;
Low Family Exemptions
Will Hit New Groups
CASHINGTON, June 25--A')-
The nation shouldered its heaviest
federal tax load since the world war
President Roosevelt's' signature
made law of a bill estimated to raise
an additional $4,692,500,000 in the
next five years by adding 2,200,000
citizens to the list of income tax
payers and by raising the rates on in-
come, profits, excise, gift and inheri-
tance taxes. The money will be used
to help finance the defense program
authorized by Congress.
The Treasury calculated that the
law would increase anticipated fed-
eral revenue in the 1941 fiscal year,
which begins Mond y, from $5,652,-
300,000 (not counting social security
funds, which are now outside the
budget) to $6,367,600,000. An. extra
$994,300,000 was expected to be raised
in each of the following four years.
Next year's revenue, if realized, will
be the largest since 1920, when peak
collections were made on World War
taxes, and the 1942 fiscal year may
set a new income record of approxi-
mately $7,000,000,000.
Officials estimated that $2,200,000
persons would pay federal income
taxes for the first time because of re-
duction of personal exemptions for
heads of families from $2,500 to $2,000
and for single persons from $1,000 to

Berlin Gives A C
Of Franco-Go
BERLIN, June 25.--W)-The terms
of thegGerman-Frenchdarmistice,
providing for the surrender of all
France's fleet save that part of it
necessary to police French colonies,
were officially announced tonight.
(The official announcement of the
details varied in no important par-
ticular from the armistice terms dis-
closed by the British Ministry of In-
formation Sunday night.)
These were among the most im-
portant provisions: -
Occupation by Nazi troops of more
than half of France.
France to cease all hostilities
against Germany not only on land
but on the seas and in her colonies,
territories and mandates.
In connection with the surrender
of the fleet, however, the Germans
"solemnly" promised not to use
French vessels in war action except
for harbor defense and mine sweep-
ing. and said that they had no in-
tention of demanding permanent
possession of the fleet as the price
of a final peace.
The area to be occupied was fixed
as the territory north of a line from
Geneva crossing the communities of

RightsTo Jibuti
(From Associated Press Dispatches)
French UIigh Commissioner Gen-
eral Suuste Nogues declared last
night that his crack Moroccan troops
would not yield one inch of French
North African territory without a
fight, the armistice notwithstanding.
In a message "to the people of
North America," the commissioner
"The Armistice has been signed,
but to abandon to foreigners without
fighting all -or any part of the terri-
tory over which we exercise sover-
eignty or protectorate is out of the
"The possibility of military occu-
pation by a foreign power of any
part whatsoever of (French) North-

"This' government is not willing
to consent to reduction of the con-
tingents (armed forces) stationed in
this territory. For the time being
the integrity of Northern Africa and
its means of defense have been as-
"I again appeal: Keep calm union
and discipline, and trust in the fu-
ture of our country."
The Tunis radio last night broad-
cast a communique of the French
commander of North Africa declar-
ing that "no foreign power" would
occupy any part of French Tunisia,
Algeria or Morocco.
"This false news is spread by the
enemy,' he-said,. "No part of French
North Africa has been occupied, nor
will be occupied."

night made public armistice terms
with France which granted the Ital-

French section of the Jibuti-Addis

tween. Italy and the British Empire
and for the duration of the Armistice,
the French Somaliland coast is to
be entirely demilitarized.
French troops are to be withdrawn

Misconceptions about progressive
education have led to faulty inter-
pretation about the goals of this
modern trend in the field of educa-
tion, Dr. Glenn F. Macomber of the
University of Oregon criticized in
his speech at the first Phi Delta Kap-'
pa luncheon here yesterday.
The doctrine of child interest, he
insisted, has been misinterpreted to

elementary grades, Dr. Macomber
cited. This is the reason that many
have looked upon progressive educa-
tion as play. Progressive education
has, on the other hand, tried to
utilize the play spirit in the case of
younger children to obtain the best
education techniques. In secondary
education,he defended, research, ex-
