THE ENQUIRER, CINCINNATI, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER S, 1O30 TRAINING For War Is Questioned In Resolution Presented To University Board. Action On Question Is Deferred For Sixty Days Appointments Approved By President. Differences in opinion as to the tatus and benefits of military training in the College of Engineering and Commerce, University of Cincinnati, offered through the present Reserve Officers Training Corps unit there, were heard yesterday afternoon by the University of Cincinnati Board of Directors at its October meeting in McMickcn Hall, its first session of the new college year. Dr. Herman Schneider, President of the University, presented to Arthur R. Morgan, Chairman of the Board, and other members in attendance, a letter from Dr. Robert C. Gowdy, Acting Dean of the College of Engi- ccering and Commerce, explaining .that at a meeting of the college s ex ecutive committee 01 juiy me ioi-lowing motion was passed: "That it is the sense of the Execu- tive Committee that military training t-hould be optional rather than com pulsory and that provision be made tor other physical training witn ais ciplinary value for those not taking military. The University Board yesterday deferred action on the military train ing question for a period of 60 days. Present at the meeting was a committee representing the Cincinnati Chapter of the Reserve Officers Association of the United States, consisting of Charles H. Mackelfresh, Chairman; William Coffin and R. F. Ruzicka. Compulsory System Urged. This committee urged the University Directors to continue the present compulsory system of R. O. T. C. work for all first and second -year engineering students. In a ' memorandum submitted to the board, ." the committee stated in part: "We believe that tha Reserve Of fibers' Training Corps is an asset to our University; that the mental, dis-,. ciplinary, and physical training is an extremely valuable part of the curriculum,-and that the officers of the United States Army here are a useful - addition to the faculty. This training and these officers are being supplied at no cost to the University." M, A letter from the Board of Park Commissioners was read to the U. C. .Board, giving approval of the general development plan adopted some time ago for future University building sites and general architectural details. - This letter was of considerable 'interest to University authorities, in t'view of the recent criticism of the ' City Planning Commission that University of Cincinnati buildings were being erected without a harmonious, 'uniform plan. ri' To Keep Fund Intact. The University Board decided that ' the $6,104.50 fund given by friends of the late Dr. Emanuel Schwab for the "'purpose of establishing a memorial to him will be kept intact and held as an endowment, whose income will i'.'be used to provide a scholarship in " the College of Medicine, to be known ' as "The Emanuel Schwab Scholar- ship in Internal Medicine." This "'action was taken in response to a re- quest by donors of tne fund, represented by Mayor Russell Wilson. ;- Acting favorably on a petition sub-': mitted by the Menorah Club, the Uni versity Branch Y. M. C. A., and the "Neuman Club, representing the three religious groups of University stu dents, Jewish, Protestant and Catholic, respectively, the University Board "authorized the inclusion on the regular U. C. enrollment blanks of this 'question, "What is your religious preference?" It was pointed out, 7 however, that a student who objects Tyill not be compelled to answer fn . rder to be admitted to the Univer- ; ., The Board accepted a gift of $150 trom the Woman's City Club for a scholarship in the School of House-,hold Administration.

Uncle Ray's Corner THE FAIR CITY OF GENEVA. While in Munich I became so much interested in looking at the toys that I missed my train, but I took another one and rode from Germany to Switzerland. The Castle Of Chlllon." The mountains of Switzerland are high and beautiful. Many are cappe.l with snow the year around. Wherever you go in this little country you are not far from mountains. After a short visit to Berne, ttia capital of the republic, I went onward to Geneva. Of all the cities I know, there is none which nature has blessed with a better location. On one side is beautiful ' Lake Leman, on the other side mountains. Geneva is the headquarters of the League of Nations. I visited the building where men from vart ous countries in North and South America, Europe and Asia come together to talk over problems. A guide showed me a drawing of 'he splendid building which is planned to take the place of the one now being used. You may have heard of "the prisoner of Chillon," who was made famous by a poem written by Byron. In order tosee the prison where this man is supposed to have been kept, I boarded a steamer at Geneva and traveled to the other end of Lake Leman. There I saw the Castle of Chillon. The Castle of Chillon is a very old building. Some of the walls date back 700 years and there are rem nants of a still older castle. The remains of the older castle have been located during recent times. The floor of one of the very old rooms was being restored and the guide gave me a. chip from a stone which he said was more than 1,00) years old. I examined the chip and it seemed very much like concrete. The guide took me to the prison where the Duke of Savoy used to keep his prisoners. One of these was named Bovard and was chained tn a pillar for four years. The story of Bovard suggested the poem to Byron. UNCLE RAX. Copyright, 1930, Publishers' Syndicate LITTLE MEN From Far East Dined By Cincinnati Lenders Japanese Delegation Making Study Of American Industry. At least a majority of Cincinnati's most promlnoi t men were present last night when the Taylor Society delegation of Japanese industrialists and engineers was entertained at dinner in the Hotel Gibson, after a day passed in seeing Cincinnati. Charles Sawyer, candidate for Congress In the Second District, was toastmaster at the dinner. He was Introduced by S. M. Lowry, of the Procter & Gamble Company, a member of the Cincinnati Taylor Society for Promotion of Efficiency in Manufacture. Mayor Russell made the official speech of welcome. Mayor Wilson said that the Japanese delegates would be interested in Cincinnati not only as a place for studies of industrial conditions and methods, but for sentimental and literary reasons. He recalled the career of Lafcadlo Hearne, once a reporter on The Enquirer, who went to Japan after he left America, and found such inspiration there that his works Interpreting and portraying Japan have raised him high in the literary firmament. The common conception of Commodore Perry's "opening the gates of Japan." Mayor Wilson said, pictures the gates as admitting the advantages of Western civilization to the Eastern world. To him, he said, the gates seem rather to admit the West to certain treasures of the East. "We have given to the East things that they can and do Imitate," Mayor Wilson said, "but they havfc given to us things that we can but admire and strive to imitate, with small measure of success. Yoiti Ueno. Chief Director of the Taylor Society of Japan and of the Association for Industrial Efficiency or japan, who is director of the party, replied to the speech of wel come. He said that the purpose of tne delegation In visiting the United States was to learn how industry was organizing, especially in this time of depression, so that the methods might be applied in Japan. which is relatively a much poorer country than the United States. The frankness and open minded- ness of the people of this country, Ueno said, has enabled the delega tion to make good progress in pursuing its investigations. I thank you for your attention to my imperfect oratory," Ueno concluded. "It was imported to this country recently free of duty, a privilege which I hope can be extended to other things brought to America from Japan and from America to Japan." The party of delegates includes Ueno, Haruo Aoki, Riiti Ezaki, Kichizo Foruya, Bungen Suzuki, Kijiro Takano, Rimpei Tominaga, Keizo Tsujimoto and Shinzo Yo-shida. They arrived 1 . Cincinnati yesterday, and were shown through the plants of the Procter & Gam ble Company and . the Container Corporation of America and through Rookwood Pottery. They were en tertained at dinner by this Cincin nati Committee. The delegates were at Dayton, Monday. They left Cin cinnati last night for St. Louis. LABOR REGIME STRONGER In England As Erstwhile Critic Extends Aid On Unemployment. Llandudno, Wales, October 7 (AP) -The Labor Government, headed by Premier Ramsay MacDonald, pre sented a more strongly consolidated front to its enemies tonight as the result of developments in today's proceedings of the Labor Party conference. James Maxton, Extreme Left Wing leader and critic of the MacDonald Administration, caused the surprise of the day when he informed the Premier that if he went to the country on the unemployment Issue he would have the whole Socialist-Labor strength solidly behind him. It had been popularly supposed that Maxton, frequently a severe critic of the MacDonald Administration, had come here to further express his disapproval of Labor Cabinet policies. Premier MacDonald was present and a speaker on today's program. Observers felt that Maxton would not let slip the opportunity to take a rap at the Prime Minister to his face. Instead, much to the surprise of all, Maxton remained, not to praise, but to strongly assure the Laborites of his sympathy with their attempts toward amelioration of business and employment conditions, y London, October 7 (AP) The rising tide of Nationalism that beat against the shores of England as the Dominion Premiers convened for the imperial conference has been checked, temporarily at least, while the delegates grapple with the economic problems common to all units of the empire. A plenary session will begin tomorrow with J. H. Thomas, speaking for the Home Government, surveying Britain's economic position. Each Dominion spokesman will give a sim ilar outline. Upon these declarations will be based the further economic considerations of the gathering of Premiers. BIRTHS.

Store Is Thronged By Buyers Result Of Ad In The Enquirer If there are those who doubt seriously the pulling power of Sunday advertising, those doubts may be dissipated once and for all time by the record-breaking sales made at the Rollman and Sons Company store, following publication of eight pages of advertising in last Sunday's Enquirer.

It Is impossible to keep accurate clocking of the number of persons who attended Roll-man Days, but based on our usual aerage sale per person, more than 250,000 persons visited our store on the two Rollman Days." WATER SUPPLY Refused By Cincinnati To Force Annexation, Sharonville Delegation Alleges County Is Unable To Aid. ' Concerned over the water situation in their village, a delegation of Sharonville citizens, headed by Mayor Harry McGrew, called upon the Hamilton County Commissioners yesterday, to urge them not to sign the new water contract with Cincinnati unless Sharonville is included in it and assured water service. They insist that Cincinnati authorities are refusing them water only fbr the purpoEe of forcing them to annexation, and charged that while it virtually means a case of "starving" tht-m out, and their water supply not only is low, but is dangerous and un healthful, they will not give in. The Commissioners informed the delegation that the matter Is one which they cannot control, but there is a certainty that if the new contract is not signed by the county, Sharonville will not get city water. On the other hand, if the contiact Is signed, there js a chance that the county may be able to make arrangements to furnish water to the village, but no certainty. Village authorities desire to pipe their town and then buy water from the city, or from the county if this can be accomplished. The city, however, refuses to enter Into any contract which will furnish city water to the suburb unless it consents to annexation, it is alleged. "We will have to leave It up to you gentlemen," Mayor McGrew told the Commissioners, "and if you cannot get us relief, we will have to go on drinking the water we have, in spite of orders of the State and County Health Departments. We can do nothing else, and are not going to give in to everything demanded of us." FORGER'S RECORD LONG, Cincinnati Police Say, Checking Case Of Covington Prisoner. Leon B.

Discussion On Gasoline Tax Stirs French Member R-101 Dead Honored In Silence. Wuslilniiton Bureau, 45 font Building. Ki'KClAt, DIKI'HITH TO TUU BNlJUIttKII. Washington, October 7 The sixth International Good Roads Congress, which had its formal opening here yesterday, turned its attention to the technical problems before it today, meeting in two groups at the United States Chamber of Commerce. This afternoon the delegates were entertained at a good roads exhibit. Alvan MacAuley, President of the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce, presiding at the. section considering administration and financing of highways, voiced an earnest plea for sound financing of all highways. There should be, he said, a general agreement among the delegates at this congress on the subject. "The chief difficulty to good roads," he saftl, "is financing. Unless it is sound it will not attract Investors' money. The advent of the automobile brought problems of financing and with the increased use of motor vehicles throughout the world these problems have increased. There is still no general agreement on financing, but fortunately opinion is crystallizing." The only debate of the meeting arose when Colonel A. B. Barber, Director of the National Conference on Street and Highway Safety, discussing gasoline taxes and other highway revenues, declared such taxes should be applied exclusively for highway purposes. Lucien Lip-man, of the French delegation, objected that his Government would not want to be deprived of using a portion of these taxes for other purposes. He suggested modification of the statement. Colonel Barber insisted, however, that his theory was sound and In this position was supported by Sir Seymour Williams, of the British Ministry of Transportation and a member of the British delegation. Dr. Werner Feilchenfeld and Carl O. Frltsch, delegates from Germany, and Edward J. Mchern, Vice President of the McGraw-Hill Company, also sup ported Colonel Barber. When a vote was taken on that section of the report no negative vote was heard. A special plenary session was conducted at noon as a tribute to the dead of the British dirigible R-101. Edmond.Chaix, Acting President .if the permanent International Asso- ciatlon of Road Congresses, presided. The session was brief. Mr. Chain hurriedly explained the reason for the special call and then asked that the delegates remain silent for u moment out of respect to the R-101 dead. The second group, presided over by Frank T. Sheets, Illinois Highwav Engineer, confined itself entirely to technical questions affecting highway construction. : AIR-RAIL LINES MERGED.
