through the rise of organized busi-
ness, fast transportation and espe-
cially, the radio. Our ideas are still
formed by conversations with others
who have heard a public speaker.
Prof. Bowel Aly, Director of Foren-
sic at the University of Missouri,
concluded the afternoon session with
an address, "Directing Forensics,
with Special Application to the Na-
tional High School Debate Question
for 1941-1942."
Drawing on his personal experi-
ence and coupling that with his
position as Editor of the Debate
Handbook Series of the National
University Extension Association,
Professor Aly discussed the question,
Resolved, That every able-bodied
male citizen in the United States
should be required to have one year
of full-time military training before
reaching the age of 21 years.
A demonstration, non-decision de-
bate on the question was held in the
Rackham Lecture Hall last night,
conducted by graduate students in
the University's speech department,
concluding the first day's activities.
Visiting Speakers Named
Prof. Charles R. Strother, of the
State University of Iowa and Mr.

castirg System, will be the visiting
speakers today for the Conference

torium on "Present Trends in Re-
search in Speech Pathology," and
Mr. McGill will present a talk at 2:30
p.m. in Morris Hall on "Problems in
Radio Directing."
Both Are Outstanding

ing on several clinical staffs for
speech disorders, and Mr. McGill is
director, casting director, . and pro-
ducer for CBS, and an instructor at

inability or unwillingness to allow
for the element of force in inter-
national relations, Mr. Hall noted.
"I is unable or unwilling to see the
immense part played by war in his-
tory and not least in the building up
and preserving of all the basic ele-
ments of the democratic system. It
accepts easily the glib untruth that
war settles nothing."
Mr. Hall quoted Ambassador Wi-
nant in asking the question "Why is
it that peace-loving people are so
slow to believe that others are plot-
ting their destruction?" and ex-
plained this as an "almost irresistible
tendency of people to project their
own character and ideas upon the
outside world and to imagine that
others despite appearances to the
contrary are really like themselves."
If the Nazis win the war their
System offers no stability, Mr. Hall
indicated. "They will be an island
surrounded by a sea of hatred, and
itself crumbling inwardly because of
its lack of the cement of mutual
trust and loyalty," he told. "Only'
.democracy with its emphasis on
reason and conscience damning back
the free flow of aggression can offer
the world any ultimate hope of the
gradual elimination of international
war. And whether democracy itself
can overcome its own inveterate ten-
dency to commit suicide by ignoring
external danger and by failing to
place adequate force behind the law,
or its tendency to degenerate itself
into a mob, we cannot foresee."
"Our hope," Mr. Hall concluded,
"lies in the strength and adaptability
given by free intelligence and con-

itself reported "pursuit of the re-
treating enemy in the southern
Ukraine is progressing rapidly every-
where," other informants added that
the German air force was heavily
assaulting the fleeing Russians.
Aside from' reporting this contin-
uing success in the south, the High
Command confined its review of the
rest of the eastern front to a dec-
laration that operations were "pro-
ceeding according to plan."
Berlin observers suggested, how-
ever, the conclusion of the struggle
along the Dnieper bend-where stand
thousands of square miles of fertile
Ukrainian land - in addition to
throwing that great agricultural and
industrial area into German hands,
would sharpen Hitler's push into
other sectors of the front.
The opening "of a deep break-
through on a front of severalrhun-
dred kilometers (in the southern
Ukraine) cannot remain without ef-
fect on the simultaneously advanc-
ing fights in the central sector, in
the Baltic area and in the northern
sector," said the authoritative com-
mentary Dienst Aus Deutschland.
