Mutpal understanding was the
plea made by Senator Royal 3.
Copeland, '89,bto the freshmen clas
last night at the traditional Ca
Night ceremony. The slopes o1
Sleepy Hollow, where the activities
were held, was crowded with more
than 5,000 students and townspeo-
ple, and was illuminated by a huge
bonfire into which the freshmen
hurled their "pots", officially enter-
ing the University.
Copeland Speaks
Senator Copeland, former student
and professor of the University and
mayor of the city of Ann Arbor, re-
called interesting incidents of his
student d.ys, 40 years ago, before
urging members of the class of '32
to be sympathetic in their opinions.
"There is a growing conflict be-
tween the urban and rural popula-
tion of the country, because of a
failure to understand the other's
problems. Evidence of this is quite
apparent in the farm relief debates
In Congress, where the men from
the city show a disregard for the
welfare of the farmers," the New
York Senator stated. j
Speeches by leaders of the two
largest graduating classes opened
the program, arranged by Council-
nan Jennings McBride, '30. Ken-
neth Schafer, '29, and Eugene East-
erly, '29E, presidents of the senior
literary and engineering classes,
respectively, were the student

Varsity athletes in the graduating
classes were singled out for award

Weintraub, Herbert Wiggers, and
Theodore Wuerfel.
After throwing their "pots" into
the fire, the freshmen marched,
with the University band, to Hill
auditorium, where a free movie was
presented. The film was shown
through the generosity of the But-
terfield theatrical interests, under
the direction of Gerald Hoag, man-
ager of the Michigan theater.

Passengers and Crew Are Safe After
Fainl Attempt to Withstand
Terrific Wind
(By Associatd Press)
CUERS, France, May 18.-The dir-
igible Graf Zeppelin was safe to-
night in a hangar here while the
liminishing mistral with which she
had been in perilous struggle all
day howled on overhead.
The crippled ship, only two of
five motors working, with occa-
sional help from a third, was drawn
Down to earth here, literally at the
°dge of the Mediterranean sea, and
beside the only landing mast in
France. The 18 passengers and 40
nembers of the crew again set foot
to the solid earth above which they
had tossed in uncertainty through-
out the day.
Two Motors Dead
The landing was at 8:35 p. m.
(2:35 p. m. eastern standard time).
Mo e than 38 1-2 hours before the'
dirigible had nosed into the air
from Friedrichshafen an set her
course for Lakehurst, New Jersey.
Twelve hours later, after an unusu-
ally fine start, Dr. Hugo Eckner,
confronted with the loss of two mo-
tors, headed his ship back home
from the Spanish coast.
The battle to wintpassage up thc
Rhone valey against the near gae
from the northwest failed, and Dr.
Eckner decided on a landing here.
It was nearly dark when the ship
appeared. Lieut. Samon, com-
mander of the airdrome, had as-
sembled soldiers, sailors, and civil-
ians hours before. They drew the
ship down and within half an hour
the passengers, one by one, de-
scended to the ground from short I
ladders raised to the cabin door. '
Passengers Badly Shaken
The mayor and .most of the doc-
tors of this village of 3,000 inhabi-
tants were at the field, but the pas-
sengers needed no medical aid.
Some of them said they had been
rather badly shaken up during the
last few hours but no one was hurt.
Dr. Hugo Eckner was the last to
leave the car. He turned immedi-
ately to thank the French officials
who, with others, all up the Rhone
valley had stood by throughout the
day to give him aid.
Even the female gorilla, Susi, was
brought out of her compartment.
The animal seemed to have suf-
fered more than the human pas-

Louisiana Trial
Ends Abruptly
Impeachment Proceedings Aguinst
Governor Long Dropped
By Senators
BATON ROUGE, La., May 17.-
As the impeachment trial of Gov.
Huey P Long passed into history
politicians today took inventory of
the political aftermath.
The impeachment proceedings
shot political factional lines away,
and it probably will take several
weeks for political leaders to adjust
their affairs.
The trial came to#An abrupt end-
ing Thursday after 15 senators, suf-
ficient to prevent conviction, de-
clared their intentions to vote for
acquittal' because they believed the
procedure unconstitutional.
The political eyes of the state
were centered on the governor for
a cue before courses were mapped.
Yielding to his advisers, he has de-
clined to speak for publication for
"a few days." He probably will go
to his home in Shreveport for a rest
after the harrowing weeks when he
was under fire, first in the house
and then in the senate.


Kubicek Breaks

Bay J. C. Baker, Sports Editor, Purdue Exponent
LAFAYETTE, Ind., May 17.-It took ten innings of a
hard, well-played game to enable Coach Fisher's Wolverine base-
ball team to prove its right to top berth in the Big Ten to the satis-
faction of Ward Lambert's Boilermakers yesterday afternoon on
Stuart Field.
Two runs in the tenth inning, scored on a three base hit by
Kubicek, after Hebelung and Straub had walked, brought the count
"up to 4-2 in favor of Michigan.
