Educator Stresses Passing of Many Varieties of Jobs HARRIS3URG, Feb. 13.--The machine age has driven 240 occupations "virtually out o£ existence" ,smce 1930, a nationally-known educator told the Pennsylvania College Presidents Association here. "One-fourth of our people are now working at occupations which either did not exist or only in a rudimentary form at the turn of the century," Dr. Arthur E. Bestor, president of the Institution, said. He did not enumerate the forgotten occupation. "Most of the factors which have made the modern world have been operating wholly or largely in the past 20 years," he said. "Much of our new educational effort is directed toward the solution of problems due to the industrialization of our civilization and the machanization of our industry. "We have learned that continual adjustment, ability to change one's occupation in middle life, adaptability and versatility are _the results that we must achieve through training if we are to keep .up with the procession in this modern world."

Roughhouse Comedy Blamed For E m o t i o n a l Jaundice EVANSTON, 111., Feb. 13.--A slapstick-loving sociologist today prescribed roughhouse comedy for what he termed a widespread emotional jaundice, and laughter for a bulging waistline. , Contrary to the familiar "laugh and grow fat," Dr. Arthur J. Todd of Northwestern University said laughter meant play, especially that kind that's not selfconscious, was the most effective way of checking central expansion. Modern life, increased leisure and a host of pressures have made it necessary for the American people to be unremittingly watchful of their mental and physical health, but corrective courses do not, he said, lie in the direction of dragging exercises, faddish diets and "quack right-thinking" formulas. "Exercise is medicine," D. Todd asserted. "Play as play illuminates all life. It should invest our work, making it a joy instead of a dreadful necessity. I strongly recommend more of the play-spirit in our jobs." Chairman of the university's department of sociology and director of the Chicago recreational survey, Dr. Todd counseled: Build up a better set of values through an improved system of educations. And cultivate the play-spirit, including many hobbies, avocations and interests. Mrs. Anna Ankeny Dead.

By International News Service. NEW YORK, Feb. 13--The primary cause of crime is inferior build and development of the human body, Prof. Ernest Albert Hooton, noted Harvard anthropologist, announced in a treaties, "Crime and Man." In a sense Dr. Hooton's work tends to support the general idea of Lom- Droso, Italian anthropologist, who' had insisted that there is a definite 'crime type" of personality. But the evidence and its interpretation are new and the result of more than 10 years of intensive studies made in 10 different states in this country. More than 15,000 persons incarcerated in American prisons, giving a fair sample of the entire nation from the angle of criminality, were carefully studied. Each criminal was measured with calipers and other instruments of physical anthropology. · His particular offense was correlated and tedius statistical deductions were drawn. Dr. Hooton', noted both lor his scientific skill and wit, sums up some of the general impressions he obtained, thus: "Our body build types are differentiated in offenses they commit, previous convictions, martial status, education and occupation. "The most important findings are the relationships of: Shortness and slenderness to burglary and larceny; of tallness to murder, and the very curious predilection, shown by the short and fat man tor sexual crimes. "They almost justify the generalization, that: Short and fat men rape; short, thin men steal; tall thin men kill and rob; tall heavy men murder and forge. "But, of course, all body -build types are likely to be associated with any particular kind of crime: The important point is that the criminals represent, on the basis of our figures, individuals from every racial group who are selected, for the most part, for constitutional inferiority. "They do not bear the brand of Cain, nor any specific physical stigmata whereby they can be identified at a glance. "The primary cause of crime is. biological inferiority." t . Dr. Hooton's basic theory is that inferiority of the physical makeup, constitutional defects and abnormalities are likely to result in various attitudes which are against the interests of society. Thus, the disposition towards breaking of ethical rules, embodied in law, is formed. . Communism Illegal. TOPEKA, Kan., Feb. 13.--A bill in the Kansas Legislature would make it a felony to hold membership in the Communist party. The bill provides a penalty of from one to 10 years imprisonment.
