Orr Addresses Delegates;
War Debt Situation Is
Reviewed In Detail
Opening the International Student
Conference on World Affairs with a
speech on "All the World's a Stage,'
President Alexander G. Ruthven de-
clared last night at the Union that
many of the difficulties facing the
world today are due to the failure
of nations and people to properly
play the part assigned to them.
The successes of the past have
been brief and often short-lived;
those of the future will be much bet-
ter, President Ruthven said. "No na-
tion," he said, "is now justified in
warring against another because of
an old grievance - international
peace must be seen more and more as
a group responsibility, and the fire-
arms of the players should be
checked at the door of the theatre."
The conference assembly approved
the appointment of Martin Wagner,
'33, as permanent chairman of the
economic sessions and Charles A.
Orr, Grad., as vice-chairman. Wag-
I ner being absent, Ori immediately
took charge and addressed the dele-
gates in German.
After the adjournment of the con-
ference, the commission on War
debts and reparations convened. A
detailed review of the War debt sit-
uation was followed by reports of
delegates from five of the chief
powers. Differences were then ironed1
out in the general discussion among
the commission delegates.
Tonight the reports of the com-
missions on tariffs and trade bar-
riers, money, credit and capital
movements, and War debts and rep-
arations will be presented at the first
plenary session. This will conclude
the sessions of the economic division.
The commissions on world politics
will meet tomorrow. Hitlerism,
Soviet Russia, and the Far-Eastern
crisis will be discussed. Sunday's

In TarponFishing
John Charles Thomas, one of the
concert stars on the program of the
May Festival, is the "greatest he-
man singer breathing," according to
, Frank McIntyre, rotund comedian,
who is back in his home town for
his regular spring and summer ses-
tIsions with the hills and valleys of
Barton Hills golf course.
"Thomas has such a marvelous
voice that neighbors in his fishing
camp at Pigeon Bay, Fla., claim he
charms the fish with his arias," the
jovial veteran said. "It seems that
while out tarpon fishing Thomas is
in the habit of singing lustily in the
operatic equivalent of a bathroom
baritone. Some of his catches have.
been so lucky that his friends at-
tribute it to his singing. But they
don't begrudge it for one night re-
turning from his usual "fish sing"

Cleaner's Tag Clue Results
In Arrest Of Detroit Man
The alleged killer of the woman whose bullet riddled corpse was
found early yesterday morning on the Dixboro Road was arrested at 11
p. m. last night in Detroit, confronted with an overwhelming chain of
circumstantial evidence, and brought to the county jail here to await trial
for murder.
The suspect is George Reed, 1839 Ellmere St., Detroit, the former
husband of the slain woman, Mrs. Ruth Reed, of the same city. He is an
employee of the Detroit Fire Department.
The first clue in the mystery which had baffled authorities for more
than eight hours came at 3 p. in. yesterday when a cleaner's identification
tag was found on the sleeve of Mrs. Reed's dress. The tag was traced
to Coggan Cleaners, 5900 Linwood St., Detroit, who furnished the
woman's name and address.
County and city officials went to the address and learned from the
landlady, Mrs. Irene Kleinsmidt, that Mrs. Reed worked at the Turnstead
Manufacturing Co. It was established that she had left this plant at 7:30
p. m. Wednesday and had not been seen since.
Reed was then picked up at his fire station at Junction and Rogers
Streets. It was discovered that he had not been to work last night, and
