Reverend Horace White
Analyzes Issue Of Race
On Economic Grounds
That "Racial discrimination is the
result of economic causes and can
be eradicated by striking at the eco-
nomic roots," was the thesis of Rev.
Horace White's speech yesterday at
the Union, under the auspices of the
With convincing evidence Rev.
White hammered home the point
that, "You never have a race prob-
lem until you have an economic
White proposed that, "As long as
the Negroes are not of sufficient
number to offer competition for
bread, homes, jobs, or whatever men
compete for, there is no discrimina-
tion against them."
Among the salient bits of evidence
in proof of this proposition, Rev.
White pointed out that, "In the North
the amount of anti-Negro feeling
was negligible until the Negroes emi-
grated in sufficient numbers to com-
pete with the whites."
White also demonstrated to the
full house that the men at the top
of our economic oligarchy have fos-
tered racial intolerance in order to
weaken the position of labor by di-
viding it on black, white and yellow
The solution to the race problem,
the speaker indicated, "lies in mak-
ing men aware of the fact that coop-
eration between the races is to their
mutual selfish advantage, and not in
asking for brotherhood on moral

From Camp Filibert Roth:
Chemicals Can Effectively
Stop Production, Fire
College Students Told
"Although chemical agents pro-
duce less material damage than de-
molition bombs, they can effectively
stop production," Sergt. Leo W.
Frank of the Michigan State Police
declared in a lecture yesterday to
Michigan Firemen gathered at the
After describing the importance of
gases in the last world war, Sergeant
Frank discussed the characteristics
of the four most commonly used
toxic agents: Phosgene, Choro-pic-
rin, Mustard, and Lewisite.
Protection from Phosgene and
Chloro-picrin, he explained requires
only a gas mask, whereas, Mustard
and Lewisite attack the skin as well
as lungs and throat.
Sergeant Frank recalled that the
deadly American discovery of Lewis-
ite has already been used once by the
Japanese in the present conflict.
Addresses by Lt. Col. Harold A.
Furlong and Maj. C. E. Brilhart were
given earlier in the day. Major Bril-
hart defined the relationship be-
tween the military and Civil Defense,
while Lt. Col. Furlong spoke on Civil-
Both addresses emphasized the im-
portance of cooperating with the civ-
ilian defense volunteers in an effort
to increase the moral of the boys on
the front by protecting the lives and
homes of their friends and relatives.
These lectures were given as part
of the program of the fourteenth an-
nual Michigan Fire College sponsored
by the University Extension Service.

DETROIT, July 15.-('P)-The hull
of a 244-foot oil tanker that had
rested on the bottom of Lake Michi-
gan for nearly six years was towed
to Detroit today where its 1,400 tons
of scrap will be used to further the
war production effort.
The tanker was once the J. Oswald
Boyd, built in Scotland in 1913, and
used for a time in the Atlantic Coast-
al Service before being placed in
service on the Great Lakes.
It foundered in a snowstorm in
November, 1936, on Simmons Shoal
off Beaver Island. Six lives were lost
when a tug exploded and a truck
broke through the ice in an attempt
to take off some of the 920,000 gal-
lons of gasoline the vessel was car-
In 1937 the tanker was released
from the shoal and taken to detour
only to founder again. Her super-
structure was salvaged, but it wqs

the scrap of the hull would be sold
by the vessel's owner, the Nicholson
Steamship Company, to the Great
Lakes Steel Corporation here.

After receiving an Sc.D. degree in
chemistry from the University in
1930, Dr. Chen returned to China
where he taught at several univer-
sities, including the famed Peiping
Union Medical College, now closed
by the Japanese. Shortly after the
start of the present war, Dr. Chen
came back to the United States, this
time to obtain a medical degree at
the University of Chicago.
Though much of his life has been
spent on scientific studies, Dr. Chen
has developed an interest and talent
in music. While in Peiping, he stud-
ied under some of the masters of
Chinese music and succeeded in gain-

CAMP FILIBERT ROTH, July 16.
-"Paul Bunyan" Criss left us this
morning. While at camp he taught
the fellows how to sharpen their
axes and keepthem in good shape,
the importance of proper handling
and safe use.
At the national Roleo at Gladstone,
Mich., Paul proved his ability as an
axeman by chopping a 12 inch white
pine log in 13 seconds. His closest
rival took 34 3/5 seconds. Paul is
considered the world's fastest chop-

per. He is no pushover at handling
the crosscut saw-at the same roleo
he and his partner, Ed Meeks, sawed
through a 15-inch white pine in nine
seconds, the saw crossing the log 10
times. Silver Jack and partner were
next with 14 3/5 seconds time.
It is the custom to have our sings
only on Sunday evenings but hav-
ing Mr. Art Granum in camp was an
opportunity that couldn't be missed.
He has been in the saw businesssfor
20 odd years. He consented to give
us some musical entertainment one
evening after supper.
Weenjoyedhearing him play on
the piano, several numbers on the
saw (an art that is not often seen
these days), and accompanying the
group singing with the song-whistle.
After the songfest and the musi-
cale Paul Bunyan began his version
(uncensored, undisputed) of the ori-
gin of Paul Bunyan, the legendary
hero of forestry and logging camps.
He said one of the deer tracks was
aboutsthesize of a bear's track-
when he turned and chanced to see
a live bear and her 'three cubs not
two chains away (a chain is a dis-
tance of 66 feet) walking past our
crowd along the lake shore. He in-
terrupted himself to. point out the
bears . . . and bedlam broke loose.
After much scampering through
the brush the cubs were treed and
the mother kept away while Ken and
Jerry climbed two trees, and roped
two of the cubs. Ken brought his
cub into a boat which had been
brought up to a convenient point
nearby-and the cub nearly chased
everybody out into the lake with his
biting, clawing and growling.

MOZART: "Prague" Symphony

ter is dramatic with (for Mozart) liberal use of dissonance

The peculiar qualities of this concerto, vigor and tenderness,

finest in balance and poise. Vic. DM 900 $3.78
