VETERANS'ISlosson Claims Truman Not

NOTES

Free legal counseling service is now
available to all veterans in Ann Ar-
bor through the courtesy of members
of the American Bar Association.
Veterans in need of legal counsel-
ing should apply to Karl Karsian at
the Ann Arbor Veterans Counseling
Center, telephone 8204.
They will be put in contact with a
lawyer in the city who will render
legal advice without charge. Should
any legal action be necessary, ser-
vices will be rendered on a minimum
fee basis.
If the "girl you left behind" is still
at her home overseas she can now be
brought to America with a minimum
of effort.
Recent legislation has .authorized
the Department of Immigration to
admit veteran's fiancees into the U.S.
on a visiting (non-quota) basis.
The matrimonial - minded veteran
needs to supply his bride-to-be with
four documents;
1. a photostat of his discharge
papers;
2. a copy of his birth certificate
or naturalization papers;
3. a letter stating his intention to
wed;
4. and an affidavit that he will
support her upon arrival until the
marriage.
When the fiancee presents these to
the American Consulate she will be
placed on a. special quota list and
shipped henceforth.
If married within three months
after arrival she becomes a perman-
ent resident; if not she will be ship-
ped back to her home.

President Truman's coming freshI
from Congress to the White HouseI
had much less effect on the legisla-r
tion passed by the 79th Congress than4
was anticipated, Prof. Preston W.I
Slosson said yesterday.
Truman had neither more nor less
influence with Congress than other
officials who have left congressional9
ranks to step into the Supreme Courtt
or the Capitol, he declared in his
weekly analysis of the news.
Although the President was a "rea-
sonably clubable fellow," building a7
good number of friendships and alli-
ances while in the Senate, once he
left congressional ranks he was no
longer a member or even regarded
with the esteem accorded an old
alumnus by members of Congress,
Prof. Slosson said.
A unique harmony did exist be-
tween the Administration and Con-
gress, he said, in the field of foreign
relations, but the congressmen knew
they were safe behind the calendar;
that they could oppose the Admin-
istration as much as they wished so
long as they pleased their local con-
stituents, and they did so on domes-
tic matters.
In spite of noteworthy agreement
with Mr. Truman on each major piece
of legislation on foreign affairs, com-
mented Prof. Slosson, the Congress
held back various measures personal-
ly plugged by President Truman.
The Army-Navy merger, perma-
nent military conscription, the Fair
Employment Practices Commission,
a ,large program of social legislation,
and the question of succession to the
presidency-whether it should pass
from the vice-president to the Secre-
tary of State or to the Speaker of the
house-were all defeated and left
open to the decisions of the 80th
Congress.
On the credit side of Congress-
Administration cooperation in do-

ress Friends V
mestic affairs goes the passage of ap-}
propriations to the extent of $6001
million for emergency housing; the
G.I. Bill of Rights; enormous ap-
propriations to carry on federal pro-
grams; the streamlining of Congress
with added pay; certain reorganiz-
ation proposals; the anti-racketeer-
ing law and other minor acts, as the
anti-Petrillo bill.
Thus, the closing of the 79th Con-
gress was the significant domestic,
news event of the week for America,
Prof. Slosson concluded.
Educator Urges
Improvement
Of High Schools
Quantitative and qualitative chan g-
es in American high schools must re-
place the "cold storage concept" of
education which is now prevalent,
John W. Studebaker, U.S. Commis-
sioner of Education asserted Monday.
Speaking in the lecture series upon
the social implications of modern
science, he said that emphasis in the
future should be placed upon "leaxn-
ing" instead of "teaching" systems
in the secondary schools of America.
Qualitatively, the high schools must
meet the needs of a world changed by
science by improving their offerings
in physical education, languages,
mathematics, science and practical
arts and by strengthening the civic
and ethical .elements of their pro-
grams, Studebaker said.
Selective service rejections during
the war point to the need for better
physical and health education, while
military demands also demonstrated
that insufficient attention has been
given to classes in mathematics and
science.
"All high school courses should
train the student"for critical listen-
ing and thinking," Studebaker de-
clared. "Critical listening is an art
much needed in a world in which
radio broadcasts are heard daily by
millions, while critical thinking is
our only democratic safeguard
against the domination of our think-
ing and feeling by various organs of
mass communication.
Quantitative changes needed in the
high schools are consolidation of rur-
al school districts, better buildings,
more instructional aids such as radio
and films, and more scholarships and
fellowships, Studebaker said.
He pointed out that the American
ideal of free and universal schooling
is short of achievement especially in
rural areas where often no'more than
half the youth of high school age
are actually attending schools.

classics, with particular emphasis on
Latin and Greek, at Hunter College,
N.Y. Her field is Inter-European lan-
guages, and particularly Hittite, a
language once spoken in the country
of Anatolia but now out of use.
Prof. Hahn will illustrate her des-
cription of the Hittite language with
historic documents dating back to
1500 B.C. From work done with this
language, she has been able to apply
the principles gained to the Europ-
ean languages of mixed origin. '
Prof. Hahn is responsible for the'
establishment of an A.M. degree in
linguistics at Hunter College and per-
sonally persuaded the American
Council of Languages Society to do-
nate $7,000 to help linguistics schol-
ars.
In developing the linguistics field
in her college, she arranged for Prof.
Edgar Sturtevant, of Yale University,
to teach there, which he has done for
two years.
Prof. Hahn was also responsible for
the introduction of a study of a mo-
dern foreign language, Rusian, by the
new method of oral approach.
"Our classics flourish, also," she
commented, disclosing that there are
1,000 girls studying Latin and nearly
90 studying ancient Greek at Hunter.
"A person has no right to think he
or she is specializing in Latin with-
out a knowledge of the Greek lan-
guage,"' she said, "because Latin lit-
erature is highly imitative of the
Grek literature from which it de-
rives." It is far easier to get a read-
ing knowledge of the ancient Greek
language than of the Latin, she re-
marked.
Prof. Hahn has just completed a
term as president of the Hunter Phi
Beta Kappa chapter.

America must keep up her foreign
markets in-order to maintain her
high standard of living, Prof. Howard
A. Ueyerhoff, executive secretary of
the American Association for the Ad-
vancement of Science, declared in a
lecture here Monday.
Prof. M'eyerhoff, who is also pro-
fessor of geology at Smith College,
spoke on "Some Social Implications
of Natural Resources." He claimed
that America was allowing groups to
"high pressure" her into policies
which did not take the. factors of
international competition into con-
sideration.
Outlining the distribution of some
of the world's most important coal
areas, Prof. Meyerhoff pointed out
the relation of the location of natural
resources such as coal and iron to
the industrial centers of the world.
These areas are actually or potential-
ly in competition with the United
States in foreign markets.
The political and social policies of
various industrial countries in regard
to their natural resources are of great
importance in world peace and co-
operation, he pointed out. The UN
is fighting for free trade and free
access to the raw material of the
world and the United States must
stand behind this policy.
There are many factors in Ameri-
ca's favor which promote internation-
al trade, Prof. Meyerhoff stated, but
she must not allow pressure groups
to influence her to adopt an econom-
ic policy regarding world trade and
the exchange of raw materials.

Army Drones
Set New Mark
Two Robot Planes Fly
2,400 Miles Nonstop
MUROC, Calif., Aug. .6-()-The
army wrote another page in the rap-
idly unfolding history of remote con-
trol aviation today when two drone
B-17 bombers landed at this desert
air basefrom Hilo,Hawaii, in the
longest completely unmanned flight
to date.
The two four-engined ships made
the 2,400-mile flight in approximate-
ly 15 hours. They were controlled by
mother planes, flying from 200 feet
to three miles distant from the pilot-
less craft.
There have been other multi-
engined drone flights of an experi-
mental nature, but army officers said
in previous instances the remotely-
controlled ships all carried safety pi-
lots.
Four correspondents traveled in
accompanying craft. The operation
was classed as top secret until all
planes had landed safely at Muroc.
. As it approached the California
coast, one of the drones dropped a
practice smoke bomb off Santa Rosa
Island, involving opening the bomb
bays, releasing the bomb, and closing
them again, all by remote control

Both artists were born in Russia,
Vitya Vronsky in Kiev and Babin
in Moscow. At the age of fifteen she
made her firstconcert tour as solo
pianist and later appeared in the
principal European capitals, playing
in England with orchestras under
Mengelberg and others.
Babin studied piano under Artur
Schnabel and composition under
Franz Schreker. He has published
several works of his own, including
his "Concerto for Two Pianos," which
had its first American performance
with the Chicago Orchestra in 1939.
