tariat at the Algeciras Conference.
From 1911 to 1915 he was minister to
China, and was minister to Serbia
from 1915 to 1918.
Under-secretary of State for For-
eign Affairs from 1919 to 1920, Count
Sforza was named Minister for For-
eign Affars in 1920. In that capacity
he negotiated and signed the Treaty

Various posts on the campus will be
manned by boys from the University
Fresh Air Camp tomorrow in the an-
nual summer Tag Day campaign to
raise funds for the camp.
The drive, under the direction of
Prof. F. N. Menefee of the Depart-
ment of Engineering Mechanics, will
raise money to aid in giving more
than 300 underprivileged boys from
Ann Arbor, Jackson, Flint and De-
troit a vacation at the Fresh Air
Camp on the shores of Patterson Lake
in Livingston County.
Will Receive Cards
Contributors to the fund will be
given a card bearing a picture of the
famous "Little "Boy on the Diving
Board," symbol of the University
The Camp was founded in 1921,
with the dual purpose of giving under-
privileged boys of this area a four
weeks vacation away from the city
streets, and of providing a laboratory
for the study of boy psychology and
problems of boys entering their teens.
Graduate Students Employed
Graduate students in psychology,
sociology and education enroll at the
camp as counsellors, and give aid and
advice to the boys, at the same time
studying their problems. Year-round
counsellors follow the cases up, keep-
ing in contact with the boys for the
entire year.
In its 20 years the Fresh Air Camp'
has grown from a small cluster of
tents to the modern, spacious camp
House Cancels
Move To End
Session Today
Legislature Rebels Against
Governor's 'Economy'
Vetoes; 31 To Review
LANSING, July 8.-UP)-The Re-
publican-dominated Legislature re-
belled against Governor Van Wag-
oner today and threatened to re-
main in technical session until it has
gained at least some of its points.
Such a move would tie the Gov-
ernor's hand in many patronage af-
fairs, and defeat his plans to oust
Republican holdover appointive offi-
cials. While the Legislature is in
session-either active or technical-
it alone holds power to remove.
The House of Representatives can-
celled the vote by which the Legis-
lature had fixed tomorrow for final
adjournment. It buried in commit-
tee the resolution which would have
fixed July 9 for adjournment, and
offered a new resolution calling for
a recess until September 9. Its spon-
sors said they had in mind a series
of recesses which might last until
the life of the 1941 Legislature ex-
pires on January 1, 1943, if they
found this feasible, because a body
in recess technically is in session.
Back in .session, the House voted
to override the Governor's vetoes
of a series of items in appropriation
bills totaling $670,000. Van Wagoner
had vetoed the items, he said, to
bring the state budget into balance.

only sufficient to p'artially cover the

MOSCOW, Wednesday, July 8.-(/P)
-The Red Army today announced
it had launched a series of counter-
attacks against German forces at
many points along a 1,000-mile front
stretching almost from the Black Sea
to the Baltic, successfully driving the
invaders back in disorder in big tank,
artillery' and airplane battles.
Soviet troops, said a communique
of the Soviet Information Bureau,

Fighting On The Plains
BERLIN, July 8.-(MP)-The bitter-

Nazi-Soviet war was reported unfold-
ing on the Russian plains tonight as
the German infantry stormed tricky
and deceptive defenses which, Nazis
said, had been prepared for years by
the Soviet army leaders.
The German High Command devot-
ed just one sentence to the Russian
campaign, and that is customary
when the fighting is hard and great
issues are at stake. The daily com-
munique said simply: "Operations. on

President Indicates Points
Beyond Indefinite Line
As PotentiallyVery Vital
Monroe Doctrine
Is CitedBy Nazis
WASHINGTON, July 8. -(1)-
President Roosevelt made it clear
today that the uncertain line sep-
arating the Eastern and Western
Hemispheres would not be considered
the eastern. boundary of American
defense activities.
In a press conference statment
which followed the American occupa-
tion of Iceland, the President said
there were points beyond that line
which might become of terrible im-
portance to this country. He had
stopped, he said, trying to determine
just where the line ran.
The Chief Executive met reporters
toward the celose of a day which had
seen the White House, through his
secretary, Stephen T. Early, reprove
Senator Wheeler (Dem-Mont) for
saying last week he had information
that Iceland would be taken over by
this country.
Early took the position that
Wheeler had disclosed military in-
formation and at his press confer-
ence Mr. Roosevelt said he thought
the case spoke for itself.
Refused To Reply
As for the reasons behind the Ice-
land move, the President said he
could not reply categorically to a
question whether he knew of any
German intention to establish a base
upon the island.
In a war, he said, one puts one's
self in the position of the other fel-
low, and asks what action would be
taken in a given set of circumnstances.
Sometimes action taken was based
upon information, he said, and some-
times not.
"Do you think the other fellow is
likely to make any move toward the
Azores or Cape Verde Islands?" he
was asked.
Cannot Prognosticate
Mr. Roosevelt's reply was that he
could not prognosticate. In a recent
speech, he stressed what he consid-
ered the importance of those Atlantic
islands to the defense of this country.
Questioning swung to the recom-
mendation of General George C.
Marshall, the Army chief of staff,
that selectees and national guards-
men be retained in service beyond
their originally scheduled year and
that present legal limitations re-
stricting their service to the Western
Hemisphere be removed. He heartily
approved of the former, at least in
part, but in view of what he consid-
ered the vagueness of where the
Hemispheric dividing line lay he
plainly thought the second of less
Berlin Protests
Iceland Move
NEW YORK, July 8. -(P)- The
first German reaction to the occupa-
tion of Iceland by the United States
came tonight in a German shortwave
broadcast by Lord Haw Haw, Ber-
lin's star propaganda announcer for
the English-speaking public.
The announcer described the move
as "an act of aggression" which in
effect scraps the Monroe Doctrine,
according, to the broadcast as heard
here by CBS. Lord Haw Haw was
quoted in part as follows :
Strike From Behind
"Now President Roosevelt decides
to strike at Europe from behind
and to violate the sovereignty of a
small and defenseless people who has
preferred to remain neutral. After
occupying Greenland he has now sent
troops to Iceland, thus committing
an act of aggression . .
"Since the war does not go to Mr.
Roosevelt in the Western Hemisphere,

Mr. Roosevelt has decided to run
after the war for thousands of miles
into the European hemisphere. Thus
the Monroe Doctrine has been finally
torn to pieces and Mr. Roosevelt's
own assertion that his measures were
taken to safeguard the Western Hem-
isphere has been refuted . .

Current Conflict Of Ideologies
Caused By Totalitarian Assault

From The New Education Conference:
Daniels Calls South Biggest U.S.
Economic, Defense Problem

The conflict of ideologies in the
world today is in reality an aggres-
sive onslaught of the totalitarian
systems against the ideologically de-
fenseless and unprepared democra-
cies, Dr. Hu Shih, China's ambassa-
dor to the United States, declared
Dr. Hu's lecture was sponsored by
the Graduate Study Program in Pub-
lic Policy in a World at War. At the
outset he defined the term "ideolo-
gy" as any set or system of ideas
about life, society and government,
originating as consciously advocated
or dogmatically asserted social, poli-
tical or religious slogans and, through'
1^~.rr vwn cc 4ofvnrnna ra . aandA

convert the whole civilized world to
its system of government."
This conflict has come about, Dr.
Hu noted, because the totalitarian
states have undertaken to "condemn,
combat and destroy what all of them
regard as their common antithesis,
their common enemy, namely, the sys-
tem of democratic ideas, ideals, prac-
tices and institutions."
The present crisis, Dr. Hu main-
tained, has begun to. force upon the
surviving democracies the gravity of
this conflict of ideologies, and a few
great leaders, among them President
Roosevelt, have begun to fight back
against the organized attack of the
totalitarian nations. -

More than 2,500 educators assem-

night to hear Jonathan Daniels,
noted author, explain that the South

one economic problem, but America's
number one defense problem.
The South, Mr. Daniels said, still
contains 11,000,000 people belonging
to families with an income less than,
$250 per year. "If these people can-
not make a living, they will eat up
the land, not only the South, but the
entire nation."

But with this has come a new fear.

The number of tenant farmers in
the South has decreased, according
to Mr. Daniels, although there is still
poverty and misery there.
Defense has become the main inter-

to preserve American democracy.,
