As an educator President Main was an outstanding figure in this country. His administration as president of Grinnell marks the great- eat development of the college and many accomplishments of utmost importance to the institution wero achieved. Offered Presidencies. Altho his record in the educational world is.attested by a long account in "Who's Who," more significant even than that of tha importance others placed on his ability is the fact that during the early years of his .presidency at Grinnell -President Main was offered the presidency of Vassar, Johns Hopkins and the College of the City of New Tork. He declined these to stay at Grinnell. President "Main was' also active outside of college work here.

The Fokker corporation is a subsidiary of the General Aviation, which owns a large interest in the T. and W 'A. E. The designer said he had his own opinion of the crash. "Ice, forming on the wings, may have.played a part," he said. "In .my opinion the ship was placed in a violent maneuver anc the wing was torn off as a result. I would say the human element entered very strongly into the cause of the crash." Three hundred ships of the type, he added, have been built in conformity with his designs, and there has -been no accident of major irn- portance involving them where the cause appeared to be wing failure.

Prom the inception of the examination I have never received any information from the chairman or anyone as to who were to testify or the line of the inquiry. I have been ignored by the committee, whether accidentally or not. \ "As a result, my report may' be independent .for, having been ignored, \I may not care to join them." Baird joined with Tinley in saying it would be "a real calamity" if the prosecution is permitted to take all the remaining time and the 'university is not permitted to explain "the compromising circumstances in which the prosecution has seen fit to place it." Refuses to Tell. · Attorney Denis Kelleher, representing the committee, said he himself frequently had not known In advance what witnesses were to be called and had not had opportunity to question them In advance. He refused to tell Senator Baird who had selected the witnesses. Kelleher said he presumed Tinley would be pleased with Fisk being placed on the stand because he had lot yet been given a chance to reply :o charges against him. The attorney added' that he disagreed with Tinley that questions of law were irrelevant. - { "There haa been difficulty in calling- witnesses," Kelleher said, "be- :ause the committee wants to be in ie legislature. My thot was that .he examination could be conducted in the business office with :he records at hand. It is impossible :o examine them thoroly without eir" re cords." Would Not Answer. Chairman Carroll asserted he was willing to receive all criticism but that he would not answer Tinley's and Baird's statements until the committee can get together. Fisk testified ne had a complete record, of the cost of items used in constructing university buildings and that the labor costs were dis- ributed carefully. The foremen tept track of the teamsters' times, said. Kelleher .examined him about connecting the university steam- lines to tenant properties. Fisk said that each renter pays a stipulated price. He said he rents a home from the university and connected the steam BIG DANCE Clear Lake Golf and Country Club Music By RAY KEYES AND HIS BAND Thursday, April 2 system to the residence because th main pipe .was near. The only prop erty not owned by the university t which steam is furnished is that o Marvin Dey, Fisk said, adding tha it.was connected by order of th board of education. "Wasting Time." Little testimony was brot out thi morning because of the prolongei discussion over whether-the com mittee should go to Fiak's office t study his records. Kelleher said-h was "wasting time" continuing th examination in the old capital. Tinley and Fisk, however, 'de manded that any testimony 01 charges that Fisk used state mate rial and labor for private 1 works b given in public. Chairman Carrol agreed, but suggested the univer sity records might be studied bette at the source. A decision'was no reached at noon. Kelleher began the examination o charges against Fisk, who assertec. all men who worked for him wer* not employed by the state at al times. "I hope to be able .to show thb committee .that every transaction was above .board,". Fisk said. "I shall produce information showing that! never used any state cement ns charged, and that^I paid every person- who did any work for me." "I want all the people to know you are above reproach," said Sen ator Baird. SPENDING CALLED CAUSE OF SLUMP (Continued From Page 1). the expansion of so-called consumer credit or instalment buying 'While that theory--with which m itself I have no quarrel--is as olc as the history of business, it remained for our generation to discover its possibilities. "Now, an individual with a fixed annual income knows about what he can save beyond his requirements for rent, groceries, clothing and other necessities for a given year This measures his potential buying power for things not absolutely es- sjential to his existence. "But if he is shown how he can buy in one year not only the things he can pay for from his current income, but thru anticipation of his savings of the succeeding year, the things he can pay for next year, his buying power for the present year is doubled. If, however, he continues such buying with each year's purchases, anticipating two years of his normal buying power, it requires no expert accountancy to prove that in five years his total normal buying power from income will be substantially exhausted. And after all, the real measure of purchasing power is income. * * * ' A PPLICATION of this system to " millions of consumers by increasing demand immediately throws upon production the necessity for increased output, Involving increased financing' for increased equipment. " · · · '" "Altho the period from 1922 to 1929 was a period of increasing demand, it was unaccompanied by increasing commodity prices, probably due to the fact that it started with unnaturally high price levels. Nevertheless, it was a period of increasing profits--decreasing profits a unit, Indeed, but increasing total profits, due to the increasing number of units handled and to the increasing efficiency of mechanized Industry. Larger profits led to a rapid advance in market prices of industrial corporate stocks. "As the speculative mania spread, the speculative profits which were being taken out of the stock market began to have their effect thru their use in the satisfaction of limitless desires, but for which the already over-stimulated demand created by instalment buying doubtless would Q fyuznd 4OJudL -WRITES MISS ABRELL It produced a rich, creamy lather -left skin lovely! · Truly amannsl" My Uiouundi whsn they Sat tat Ktrlc'» Cocoa Cxitile.
