W orkers Should Be Treated as Human
Beings, Not as
Declaring that a democratic sys-
tem of government and an autocratic
business life existed in this country,
Prof. R. W. Sellars, of the philosophy
department, in his lecture "Industrial
Democracy" yesterday asserted that
one of these systems must go, push-
ing the other aside. He said that a
house divided against itself can not
stand, and that this was true of the
difference between business and gov-
ernment in the United States.
Professor Sellars then showed that
experiments were being tried by the
various industries to effect a plan by
which a democracy like that in the
government could be established in
business. Some business firms have
devised methods by which the manu-
facturing establishments are run in
much the same way as the govern-
According to Professor Sellars, the
trouble with these plans would be
that the demands of the laborers
would not cease, but continue in
seeking more power. He said that
these demands should come gradual-
ly, thus avoiding the clash of inter-
ests. If it should go far it might lead
to disruption of the plant efficiency,
declared Professor Sellars.
Recognize human Factor
"To get the best results human be-
ings should be treated as human be-
ings and not as machines. In this
way, loyal workers may be secured
who will do their best work. The
human factor should be recognized
and men may thus be secured who
work for more than the pay envelope,"
stated Professor Sellars.
He said that development of ideas
by which the autocratic business
methods might be done away with,
had been furthered to the greatest
extent in England where the need
has developed long ago because of
necessity. Rather workable plans in
the form of workmen's committees and
industrial parliaments have been
evolved, Professor Sellars said.
Open 1iscusson Needed
"The hopes for settlement of this
problem will probably lie in open dis-
cussion in which the difficulties are
sanely analyzed and in which the dif-
ferent conceptions of a settlement are
considered. The enemies of any agree-
ment are the extreme conservatives
and the extreme radicals. It is these
people who must be convinced by log-
ical argument," said the speaker.
Both the labor unions and the capi-
talists are to blame for present con-
ditions, according to Professor Sel-
lars. He said that too great demands
by the unions and too autocratic re-
fusals were responsible for the state
of affairs now existing. Materialism,
too much worship of success, and the
slighting of the human factor by the
American people lead up to present
conditions, he said.

New York, July 28.-Columbia's
summer school enrollment for this
year tops all records of previous sum-
mers with a high water mark of 10,000
students, coming from all over the
country. About one-fifth of the total!
attendance comes from the Southern
states. The enrollment was about
6,500 last year.

Five en Needed
For Rifle Team
Five more men are needed to fill the
quota for the Michigan rifle team
which is to compete in the national
rifle matches to be held at Caldwell,
N. J., Aug. 15 to 30. In addition to
being placed on the Michigan civilian
rifle team, the five men successful in
shooting their way on the team will,
at the same time, become members of
the University rifle team for the com-
ing year.
The men will be picked solely on
their marksmanship, the five highest
being the ones chosen to attend the
Caldwell tournament and constitute
part of the rifle team for next year.
The entrance fee is $1.00.
Prof. C. E. Wilson, captain of the
Michigan civilian rifle team, wishes it
understood by men who have done no
shooting that they are not barred from
attending the tryouts. In fact it is
desirable to have such men attend,
simply for the purpose of teaching
them how to handle a gun and to
teach them something about marks-
manship. The only charge will be a
small one which will be made to cover
the expressage on the ammunition.
Last Saturday there were only
about a dozen men at the range, south
of Ann Arbor, although there are ac-
commodations for many more. Prof. J.
R. Hayden will have several assistants
with him every Saturday afternoon to
give individual instruction.
First Sergt. Karl L. Wehmeyer, ex-
'19E, has arrived at Camp Mills, N. J.,
after having served overseas since
April, 1918, according to a telegram
just received by his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Chas. A. Wehmeyer, 920 Oakland
Wehmeyer sailed from this country-
in the spring of 1918 as a member of
the medical staff of the aviation ser-
vice. While overseas he was trans-
ferred to the supply department of the
Red Cross, in which capacity he serv-
ed until the end of the war.
Wehmeyer attended the University
of Glasgow for two months while in
uniform and he expects to complete
his work here next year. He was a
member of The Michigan Daily staff
when in the University.
Today is "Hello Day" at Wisconsin.
Determined to answer in a practical
way the challenge of a lonely co-ed
that the Badger university is cold and
conventional, students and faculty
have organized for a day on which
everyone on the campus is to speak
to everyone else.
Committees have been organized to
arrange a series of events that will
promote the opportunities for meeting'
and becoming acquainted, and formal-
ity and introductions will be cast to
the winds.
More than 3,000 have registered at
Wisconsin for the summer session.
This is a record enrollment.
$10,000,000 ENDOWMENT FUND
Cambridge, Mass., July 28.-Har-
vard's old grads will begin a three-
day course in instruction here in
practical methods of raising a $10,000,-1
000 endowment, which it is intended

to put to many uses in improving the
university and increasing the salaries
of the faculty.
The joint chairmen of the national
committee in charge of the campaign
are Thomas W. Lamont, of J. P. Mor-
gan & Co.; and Eliot Wadsworth, ex-
vice-chairman of the American Red
Cross. Many former Harvard ath-
letes are expected to attend the

are known to have died in the serv-
ice, and more names are coming in
daily to the alumni secretary's office.
It is expected that the final record'
will contain 200 names, although
many of the Michigan men who died
will never receive recognition from
the University because of incomplete-
ness of their addresses after leaving
college. When it is thought that the
list is complete, the alumni office ex-
pects to publish a book containing the
names of the men who were in the
service and a sketch of the Univer-
sity's activities during the war.
This will probably not be done until
after all the soldiers have returned
to this country and have been de-
mobilized, as new names with the
men's records are received in every
mail. The names of the men who
died in service are:

EM. M.)
Despite the over-bearing heat of
Saturday, two audiences of more than
average size were carried back into
the days when the drama was in its
youth, and witnessed two of the plays
that have come down from that time,
"The School for Scandal," and Ro-
meo and Juliet," as presented by the
'Devereux players.
Both plays were given in a fairly
pleasing manner, and though several
breaks were noticed during the per-
formances, they were due less to the
carelessness of the actors than to the
inadequacy of the auditorium and the
stage. The outdoor setting, which is
usually a feature of the summer
plays, would have added to the gen-
eral effect.
Of the actors, Zinita Graf was easily
the best of the female players, while
William Podmore was the best in the
male roles. Miss Graf has a pleasing
manner and a clear voice, and was at
no time unable to be understood. Of
many of the actors this unfortunately
could not be said, especially Mr. Aus-
'tin, who as Romeo in the evening
enunciated many of his lines very
William Podmore was a delight, and
easily the most enjoyable of the en-
'tire company. In th afternoon his
quiet comedy was the best feature of
the play, and he made Sir Peter Tea-
zle most entertaining. In the evening
performance his Mercuto stood out
above all except perhaps that of Ju-
Of the other members of the com-
pany, mention must be made of Miss
Agnes Scott, who is already known to
Ann Arbor audiences. As Mrs. Can-
dour in the afternoon, and especially
as Juliet's nurse in the evening, she
played her roles most effectively. The
remainder of the players, while not
especially noteworthy in their parts,
were yet able to give adequate sup-
port to the leading characters.

Miss Hope Conklin, '10, who suc-
ceeds Miss Lucy Elliot as social di-
rector of Helen Newberry residence,
has entered upon the duties of her
new position. Miss Conklin is a grad-
uate of Michigan, class of 1910, and
has been a teacher of Latin in the Ann
Arbor high school and in Oak Park,
Ill. She will fill the position of so-
cial director for the remainder of
Summer school and for the ensuing

May Postpone Trip to Paeifie Coast

Partisan Plot
Washington, July 28. - Senator.
who conferred with President Wilson
during his visit to the capitol late to-
day said that the president planned
to submit immediately, probably to-
morow, the French treaty, under which
the United States and Great Britain
would aid France in event of aggres-
sion by Germany.
President Wilson remained at the
capitol about an hour, engaging in a
discussion with Democratic senators
of many questions regarding the peace
No indication was given by the
president, senators said, regarding
when he may give further Informa-
tion to the senate on the Shantung
provision of the treaty, The question
of reservations, it was said, was only
briefly discussed.
Not to Appear in Person
It was understood that the presi-
dent would not appear before the sen-
ate to present the French treaty as
he had indicated in his address pre-
sentinr '> peace treaty, but that the
Franco .,merican agreement would
be sent to the senate as a communica-
tion from the president.
The president also discussed. his
plans to tour the country for the
treaty and is understood to have in-
timated that the trip might not be
made as soon as had been expected.
Senators got the impression that the
president was holding in abeyance his
plans for starting the trip, but it was
'said that Mr. Wilson seemed to be in
no doubt that he would go before the
country sooner or later.
A charge that Republican senators
in criticising President Wilson for not
sending the treaty with France to the
'senate, followed a carefully laid par-
tisan plan, was made in the senate to-
day by Senator Williams, Democrat,
Williams' Statement
Declaring the treaty is not perfect
or satisfactory in all respects to every
one, Senator Williams said:
"I don't like Shantung. I don't
like the idea of trying the kaiser."
The kaiser, the Mississippian added,
should be turned loose and allowed
to receive merited and general con-
Senator Williams said the treaty as
a whole with its plan for world peace
and progress should be acceptable.
