Rift Over Disarmament Is
Heightened By Charges
Made At League Meet
GENEVA, April 29.-MP)-The con-
flict between France and Germany
over the troublesome problem of
disarmament was intensified today
by a difference over the proper meth-
od of computing armed strength.
The French, supported by Poland
and Czechslovakia, insisted that the
German state police, estimated at
about 100,000 men, were in fact a
potential military unit, and therefore
should be considered as part of the
German army.
At a meeting of the world disarm-
ament conference committee on ef-
fectives, the nations upholding this
view argued that the German state
police mhight become an important
adjunct to the Reich in the event of
The German answer to this con-
tention was seen by the spokesmen
for the heavily armed countries of
Europe in what they called a joker
inserted in the German amendments
to the disarmament plan which has
been presented by the British.
Under this "joker" clause every
resevist would be given a "seven
days value" as a real soldier-which
would mean that the 5,000,000 re-
serves- would be counted as 100,000
effectives or half of the home land
army which the British draft allo-
cates to France.
By this interpretation, it was said
that instead of the 130,000,000 men
as the total strength of the American
rrmy, the proper figure would be
5#,0 1 men. Txis would entail com-
puting state militia and state con-
If <the: ,onference, as is expected,

Germans will demand the right to

sailles. They may also insist on a

Pres. Roosevelt
Program. Includes Tarif[
Adjustment, Relief For
Railroads, Public Works
(By The Associated Press)
WAShINGTON, April 29.-The in-
troduction of three more bills will
virtually complete the administration
program for the busiest special ses-
sion of Congress since war time.
The three proposals are designed
to help the railroads, give President
Roosevelt broad power on tariffs and
provide for an expansive public works,
program to increase, employment.e
They will probably go to Congress in;
the order named, with the railroadR
bill leading the way, perhaps Monday1

or Tuesday.'
Both houses were in adjournment
today for a week-end holiday. Great
strides were taken Friday in advanc-
ing Mr. Roosevelt's domestic recon-
struction program. The Senate
finally passed and sent to conference;
with the House the farm relief-infla-
tion bill, while the House approved1
and sent to the Senate the $2,300.-
000,000 home mortgage refinancing
measure. The latter bill went through
by the overwhelming vote of 333 to 4.
Passage of the farm relief-infla-
tion legislation cleared the way for
early Senate approval of many ad-y
ministration measures which have
been piling up. Before adjourning,
the Senate made the Norris MuscleI
Shoals bill its unfinished business,
with leaders predicting that this and
the $500,000,000 direct relief measure
would be speedily disposed of, prob-
ably on Monday.
The Senate banking committee re-a
ported out the administration's bill1
to regulate the sale of securities, as-
serting that enactment was "impera-
tive" to protect investors and bring

Fifth Inning Is Disastrous
For Michigan As M. S. C.,
Makes Three Hits Count
One big inning spoiled Michigan's
chance of getting the jump on Mich-
igan State with an initial win in
the Michigan Collegiate title race.
The fifth spelled disaster for the
Wolverines' hopes of victory as the
Spartans scored three runs on threej
j hits to win, 5 to 1, yesterday at
Ferry Field.

gave up 11 hits to the invaders while
their mates were able to pound out;
only seven off McCaslin's hurling.
However Michigan left 12 men on
the paths who, if they had received
any help, could have easily won the
Coach Fisher's team remained in
the rut of their batting slump with
only Artz and Petoskey able to do
much in the way of stickwork. Artz
got two singles and a double in five
times at bat while Petoskey got three
singles in the same number of times
up. Oliver had one hit in three offi-
cial times at the plate. This was the
extent of Michigan's hitting.
Both teams scored in the second.
Eliowitz hammered a single through

'ill Confer On
The future solution of present
world political problems will form
one of the main themes for discus-i
sion during the International Student
Conference on World Affairs to be
held May 4, 5, 6, and 7 at the Union,
according to discussion outlines ar-
ranged by the executive committee.
In the field of international poli-
tics, the probable outcome of Hitler-
ism in Germany and Fascism in ItalyI
will receive considerable attention,
advance reports indicate. The Rus-
sian situation will also call attention
to communism and socialism.
The crisis in China and Japan isI
another important condition sched-
uled for attention. Foreign students
here will represent these countries
at the conference by giving short
speeches on the policies of their own
native government.

recognized world record of 9.5. Met-

Further contracts for the complete

May 22 through June 21, were com-
pleted yesterday, according to Rob-
ert Henderson, director of the sea-
For the production of Shake-
speare's "Twelfth Night," starring
Miss Jane Cowl, many of the cast of
Miss Cowl's original New York per-
formances of the play have been en-
;aged. In addition, Robert Hender-
son has received permission from
Kenneth McGowan and Carl Reed,
the New York producers, to bring to
Ann Arbor the costumes and "book"
setting for "Twelfth Night" used in
the New York production. This stage
setting, designed by the distinguished
artist, Jo Metzeiner, shows a huge
"book," labelled "Twelfth Night," in
the center of the stage at the rise
of the curtain. The Clown comes
forward and turns the pages of the
"book," which as they open on each
side are painted with the various
scenes of the play.
Joyce Carey To Appear
In addition to Walter Kingsford
as Sir Toby Belch with Miss Cowl as
Viola in "Twelfth Night," the Ann
Arbor production will include Joyce
Carey as Olivia, Lewis Martin as the
Clown, and Jerry Bow as Sebastian;
all of whom played these roles with
Miss Cowl in New York.
Joyce Carey appeared as Chryso-
themis with Blanche Yurka and Mrs.
Patrick Campbell in Mr..Henderson's
production of the "Electra" last win-
ter in New York. She also was one
of the three sisters with Katharine
Cornell in "The Barretts of Wimpole
Street," and she played a featured
iole with Miss Cornell this year in
Lewis Martin as the Clown in
"Twelfth Night," due to the unusual
nature of Miss Cowl's "book" setting
has much of the action centered
about him. Jerry Bow, as Viola's
twin brother, Sebastian, bears a
striking physical resemblance to Miss
Cowl herself, which is vital to the
plot of the comedy.
Costumes Being Prepared
Miss Cowl is now working with
Paul Stephenson, who has just been
appointed art director of the festival,
in New York on the costumes and
settings for "Camille." Recently Mr.
Stephenson has been assistant to
Cleon Throckmorton in the New
York Theatre Guild production of
The Moon Over the Yellow River,"
and this fall he was assistant to Rob-
ert Edmond Jones in his production
of "Camille" with Lillian Gish.
Season tickets for the dramatic
festival, according to Jean Joseph A.
Bursley, treasurer of the Civic Com-
mittee presenting the season, have
established a record through the first
week of sale which ended last night.
Desirable locations are still available
it is stated, and seats may be secured
at the Alumnae Council office in the
Michigan League Building daily from
10 a. m. to 7 p. m.'

nounced yesterday.
The Family Banquet this year will

by John H. Huss, '33, general chair-
man for Homecoming. Under the new
plan it is expected that a more con-
genial evening will be available to
the entire family, in place of the for-
mer segregation. Arrangements for

Dalies Frantz
Wins District
Piano ContestI
National Music League
Picks Guy Maier Studentj
For Detroit Honors
Dalies Frantz, a graduate of the
School of Music who studied under
Prof. Guy Maier, was selected yes-
terday in Detroit as district winnerI
of the piano competition in a na-
tional music contest being sponsored
by the National Federation of Music
Club and Schubert Memorial, Inc.
The notice of Mr. Frantz' success
was received from Mrs. Byrl Bacher,
assistant dean of women and na-
tional chairman of the contest.
Two weeks ago Mr. Frantz won
the state contest held at Flint. The
district contest included pianists
from Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
He will next go to the national com-
petition to be held May 22, 23, and
24 at Minneapolis, Minn.

Whatever the eventual verdict of
history may be, the talk with the
Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald
of Great Britain, former Premiere
Edouard Herriot of France and
Prime Minister Richard Bennett of
Canada, marked a direct and frank
application of President Roosevelt of
his policy of "the good neighbor" in
world affairs.
Official Conclusions
From the private expressions of
officials and between-the-line read-
ing of the necessarily vague com-
muniques issued there emerged cer-
tain definite conclusions outstand-
ing among which were these:
That the President had met frank-
ly the thorniest of all problems-that
of the $11,000,000,000 owed to the
United States as a result of the war
by various European nations-and
had, opened the way for a friendly
settlement of these obligations.
That the President had success-
fully enlisted the support of all three
nations, in principle at least, on a
program of cutting away the tangle
of tariff, exchange restrictions and
other barriers by which the several
countries have surrounded them-
selves in selfishly nationalistic at-
tempts to live for themselves alone.
No Foreign Suspicions
That the President had disarmed
the British and French suspicions
from America's second departure
from the gold standard by explain-
ing to them the domestic considera-
tions which prompted the action.
That the United States is ready to
assume new responsibilities in lend-
ing its influence to the preservation
of peace in order to bring an atmos-
phere of national security which will
allow definite reductions.
That the President had persuaded
his visitors to help assure the suc-
cess of the world monetary and eco-
nomic conference by agreeing not to
boost tariff walls to gain bargaining
power at that conclave set for June
12 in London.
