Corner Stone
For Health
Without elaborate ceremony and
blaring bands the, corner stone of
the new $750,000 Public Health Build-
ing on Observatory Avenue was laid
yesterday.
In the corner stone of the modern
new classroom and research build-
ing was imbedded a copper box con-
taining papers and documents perti-
nent to the construction of the new
School of Public Health.
Attending the laying of the corn-
er stone were Dean Clarence S. Yoak-
um of the graduate school, Univer-
sity vice-president and secretary
Shirley W. Smith, Prof. Lewis W.
Gram of the engineering school and
LdUis Sarvis, architect of the build-
ing.
The completely modern building,
jointly endowed by the W. K. Kellogg
and Rockefeller Foundations, over-
looks Observatory Avenue. Three
stories in height, it will contain
lbunges, classrooms, research facili-
ties, a library and auditorium.
Special laboratories for the study
of diseases, offices and workrooms
of public health dentistry, mental
hygiene and nutrition will be located
in the three story building.

House Gives Winston Churchill
475 To 25 Vote Of Confidence

(Continued from Page 1)

the majority of the others not voting
either were absent in the fighting
services or because of illness.
Amidst the somber report of the
reverses in Libya and Egypt, Church-
ill turned to his conversations with
President Roosevelt in Washington.
He gave reassurance to Coamons and
the Empire that "the two great Eng-
lish-speaking nations were never
closer together."
Churchill said his talks with Mr.
Roosevelt and, the arrangements
agreed upon were, of course, secret
but he did disclose that the conversa-
tions "were concerned almost entire-
ly with nothing but the movement of
ships, guns, troops, aircraft and
measures to be taken to combat losses
at sea and replacement and more
than replacement of sunken tonnage."
Parliamentary circles expressed the
opinion that the increase in 24 votes
over the ballot last January might
force the Prime Minister to accede to
at least one demand of his critics,
the creation of a combined general
staff.
There was no indication, however,
that ie would give up the position of
Minister of Defense, for which the

critics clamored most loudly.
The Prime Minister lashed at crit-
ics who, he declared, were trying to
sap the confidence of soldiers, work-
ers and people of Britain in his gov-
ernment and the Allied victory.
He acknowledged "muddles and
mismanagement" had been added to
the famous "blood, toil, tears and
sweat" dictum he laid down when he
rallied the nation after Dunkerque,
1ut he called on the House to show
the world that there is a "strong,
solid government" in Britain.
But the preponderance of Church-
ifl's spirited and unflinching defense
dealt with the fighting and reverses
in Libya and Egypt.
Petitions Favoring
Wayne Home Rule
A inendrment Filed
LANSING, July 2.-(P)-The Citi-
zens Committee for Home Rule in
Wayne County today filed petitions
bearing 310,0000 signatures, to quali-
fy the proposed home rule consti-
tutional amendment for a place on
November election ballots.
Harry F. Kelly, Secretary of State,
said the petitions would be studied
to determine whether they are in
legal form and bear the required
number of valid signatures-203,007.
He declined to express an opinion
on the merits of the proposal to
abolish the Wayne County Board of
Supervisors and employ a smaller
county legislative branch.
Concurrently, Attorney General
Herbert J. Rushton declared in an
informal opinion to James Wam-
clapp, of Pontiac, that a majority
vote in behalf of the calling of a
constitutional convention, another
issue to be voted upon in November,
woud not prevent the home rule
and a proposed legislative reappor-
tionthent amendment from taking
effect in event they, too, received
majority approval of the electorate.

Readjustment Of Attitudes Vital
To Reconstruction, Hurani Says

As important as political, economic
and territorial reconstruction may be
in the post-war period, the major re-
adjustment must be in the hearts
and minds of men. declared Dr.
Habib Kurani yesterday, on leave
from the American University in
Beirut, Syria, at the third of a series
of lectures at the School of Edu-
cation.
Reeducation must play the major
role in this process, Dr. Kurani told
his audience. Through this process,
he said, the ignorance, aggression
and attitudes of superiority which
have built barriers between nations
must be wiped out:
He indicated that approaches to
this could be made by institutes for
inter-cultural relations in educa-
tional centers, study of the cultural.
developments of other nations and
especially by bringing the young
people of different nations together
so that they could find mutual in-
terests and develop lasting ties.
On leave from his work in Syria,
Dr. Kurani has been unable to re-
turn to his position since 1939 be-
cause of the war. While in this
country he has been connected with
Harvard and Columbia and is no
stranger to the Michigan campus.
The next in the education schoql's
lecture series will be given at 4:05
Scrap Drive
Falling Short
Rubber Gifts Will Require
Stretching For Quota
Arthur Galloup, vice-chairman of
the Washtenaw County scrap rub-
ber campaign, today asked for 25,000
more pounds of old rubber in a
hurry, saying "we should try to go
over the top by digging it out of
the ground, if necessary."
Mr. Galloup expressed ho satis-
faction because the county is 25,000
pounds of rubber short of the quota
asked by the government. He just
wants people to get it into the gas
stations as soon as possible.
The scrap rubber campaign
throughout the country-officially
to close Monday-was extended un-
til July 10 by President Roosevelt
because the rubber turned in was
far below minimum expectations.
Mr. Galloups, in praising the com-
munity's effort, said he wanted still
a better showing. "We have to make
up for other communities which
won't collect their quotas."

p.m. Monday in the University High
School Auditorium by Fred Wal-
cott; acting head of the English de-
partment of University High. His
topic will be "Popular Illusions Con-
cerning the Teaching of English."
On Wednesday Bangnee A. Liu, of
the China Institute, will discuss
"China in American Schools." Ed-
gar W. Knight, professor of educa-
tion at the University of North Caro-
lina, will give the next lecture in
the series on Thursday. The topic
is to be announced later.
