Davidson College Gets $150,000 I
For Building To House Library
DAVIDSON, March 30—Davidson
College’s centennial building fund
movement achieved another goal to
day when President Walter L. Ding
le announce to the student body a
gift of $150,000 for a new library.
Fulfilling one of the greatest needs
on the campus today the new struc
ture, th i gift of an anonymous don
or, will serve as a memorial to a
great teacher and his wife whc
names were withheld from the state
ment. Tentative plans were drawn
up last year, and construction wl'l
begin immediately.
The library will probably stand at
the northwest or southwest corners
of Chambers building.
This is the fourth and largest
building to be authorized since
Davidson outlined its construction
program in 1937 in connection with
its centennial celebration. At this
time the committee in charge listed
seven urgently needed buildings. Of
these a $25,000 enlargement of the
Davidson stadium, a $25,000 infirm
ary, a new $85,000 dormitory, and
funds for a $150,000 library have
been provided. The college has also
received donations of $10,000 for a
student loan fund and $50,00 to en
dow a professional chair.
The administration will not turn
its efforts towards the construction
of other new buildings needed for the
campus. Vital Davidson needs out
lined by Dr. Lingle in his statement
to the student body includes a new
gymnasium, church, science build
ing, social center and an increased
endowment.
BAILEY PROMISES
TO PUSH PROJECTS
(Continued From Page One)
ects are, by any means, doomed.
They may be postponed but I am
resisting postponement. The pres
ent situation is as follows:
“It is quite clear that we cannot
get through the bill as prepared,
carrying $412,000,000 of projects,
consequently, the committee has
called upon the chief engineer to
prepare a list of the more urgent
projects in the hope that we can
get through a bill on this basis.
The engineers are preparing this
report. I am hoping that they will
include the Wilmington and Cape
Fear projects and the other North
Carolina projects. If they should
not do so, I shall continue my ef
forts. This is not the last year in
which we can hope to do things. If
we fail this year, we may hope to
succeed next. This is the situation.
“Be assured that I am doing the
best that I can with a very diffi
cult situation, a situation made dif
ficult by the simple fact that the
rivers and harbors bill has been
loaded down like a “ship at sea’’
with a load of projects and to such
an extent that the President and
the congress are not sympathetic
with it. We must throw out a great
many projects and get a more mod
erate bill. Whenever I undertake
to do this, I meet with the usual
opposition; however, we may be
able to break the jam at this ses
sion or next.”
F. R. IS RAPPED
FOR HIS SILENCE
(Continued From Page One)
dency until now on the very eve
of the election the majority party
is marking time, floundering in con
fusion and trailing in public ac
claim."
During the day, another western
er, Senator Schwartz (D-Wyo) de
clared h4 favored a third term for
the President.
Schwartz, previously silent on the
third term issue, told reporters that
“in view of conditions throughout
the world, I think it highly advis
able that the President remain at
the helm.”
The Wyoming senator made plain
his belief, however, that there were
other candidates fitted for the presi
dency who could be called on if Mr.
Roosevelt refused to run again.
In Boston, meanwhile, former Gov
ernor James M. Curley, one of Mr.
Roosevelt’s earliest supporters in
Massachusetts, declared his support
for the presidential candidacy of
James A. Parley.
PLEADS IN VAIN
LAKE CHARLES, La., March
30—(/P)— Mrs. Annie Beatrice
Henry, pretty 24-year-old wife of
a murderer, is under conviction
for the slaying of a man who
knelt naked and begged in vain
for his life and a chance to see
his daughter graduate from col
lege.
The woman calmly received a
jury’s murder verdict, making
hanging mandatory, last night
that she fatally shot Joseph P.
Calloway, 42, a Texas salesman
who befriended her before the
St. Valentine's day slaying.
Only one white woman in the
history of Louisiana has been
hanged.
Huge Vote Predicted
fn Illinois Primariei
CHICAGO, March 30—(IP)—A huge
vote in the Illinois primary elections
was forecast today by political prop
hets in both major parties.
If maximum predictions are borne
out, approximately 2,900,000 citizens
—a record primary turnout — will
cast ballots a week frc^n next Tues
day.
Drawing the electorate toward the
polls are a number of magnetic fac
tors.
Chief attraction from a national
perspective is the presidential pref
erence referendum. President Roose
vet is pitted against Vice-President
Garner on the democratic side.
Thomas E. Dewey is without a com
petitor on the republican list.
Chain Stores Termed
‘Vicious* Monopoly
WASHINGTON, March 30—UP)—
A witness who said he spoke for the
Independent Bankers association and
a Missouri publisher told congress to
day that chain stores and their poli
cies were detrimental to the public.
Ben T Bois, of Sauk Centre,
Minn., secretary of the bankers'
group, and George Schulte, owner
and publisher of the Interstate Mer
chant of St. Louis, decried cha!n
store methods as "devious and ‘‘va
rious'’ and leading to a ‘‘vicious”
monopoly.
They appeared before a house ways
and means subcommittee during
hearings on a bill to Improve a fed
eral tax ranging from $50 to $1,000
on chain stores.

RUSSELL BARRED
FROM TEACHING
(Continued From Page One)
not comply with the statute for
selecting public employes on the
basis of merit and fitness, and that
it was against public policy because
of Russell’s teachings “and his im
moral character.”
An appeal was probable—Justice
I
■ ~ » »» *"»'**» ’ v« a v* » a ah
McGeehan said he expected it—
and a move to enlist Russell’s own
aid in his defense was begun by
the American Civil Liberties union,
which offered him legal assistance.
Russell, now teaching at the Uni
versity of California at Los An
geles, made no immediate comment.
The justice asserted Mrs. Kay’s
first two contentions were suffi
cient to uphold her plea for revoca
tion but he based his decision
mainly on the third, the immoral,
allegation.
“Amply Sustained”
‘‘The contention of the petitioner
that Mr. Russell has taught In his
books Immoral and salacious doc
trines is amply sustained by the
books concededly to be the writings
Df Bertrand Russell," he said.
He added it was unnecessary to
‘detail here the filth which is con
tained in the books" but he cited
several quotations, including these:
From “Education and the Modern
World”—"I am sure that university
life would be better, both intellec
tually and morally, if most univer
sity students had temporary child
less marriages. . .”
From “Marriage and Morals”—
“For my part, while I am quite
convinced that companionate mar
riage would be a step in the right
direction, and would do a great
deal of good, I do not think that
it goes far enough. ... I should
not hold it undesirable that either
a man or a woman should enter
upon the serious business of a mar
riage intended to lead to children
without having had previous sexual
experience.”
“Quite Irrational”
From “What I Believe”—"The pe
culiar importance attached, at the
present, to adultery, is quite irra
tional.”
McGeehan then cited provisions
of the penal law regarding rape,
adultery and "abduction” for sexual
purposes of women under 18 and
declared:
‘‘Considering Dr. Russell’s princi
ples with reference to the penal
law of the state of New York, it
appears that not only would tha
morals of the students be under
mined, but his doctrines would tend
to bring them, and in some cases
their parents and guardians, in
conflict with the penal law, and
cordingly this court intervenes.”
