among executives of interested states
to force ratification of the Great

by the United States Senate.
The Michigan executive called a
conference of governors of 23 states
to be held in Chicago Tuesday to

tion of the seaway treaty.

ed that President Franklin D. Roose-

convinced him that immediate ac-
tion is necessary, the Governor said.
The governor said he was fearful
the Canadian' government might re-
scind its ratification action unless
the Senate acts soon. He said the
dominion government is threatened
with political changes and that a
new party may come into power
which is antagonistc to the pro-
posed St. Lawrence waterway pro-
The Governor will leave Monday
afternoon by airplane for Chicago.

Germany To Declare Her
Intentions With Regard
To World Peace
Nazi Party Desires
'Hands Off' Policy
Withdrawal From World

BERLIN, May 12.-(P)-Chancellor
Adolf Hitler today summoned the
German Reichstag to convene on
May 17 in order to make an impres-
sive and solemn declaration before
the whole world in the presence of
the Reichstag of Germany's desire
This The Associated Press learned
on reliable authority. It was denied
that Hitler intends to announce Ger-
many's desire to withdraw from the
World Disarmament Conference in
A spokesman of the Chancellor's
Nazi Uarty intimated that Hitler will
not go into details or try to refute
arguments, but with a large perspec-
tive, will attempt to expound Ger-
many's wish for peace, coupled with
a plea that nations keep their hands
off Germany's internal policies and
let her work out her salvation for
Great importance was attached to1
the Reichstag convocation, not only
because of an enabling act passed1
last March giving Chancellor Hitler
dictatorial powers, but also because
of the impasse reached in Geneva
over Germany's arm demand.
The difficulties at Geneva develop- t
ed in consideration of the British,
disarmament scheme, under whicha
both Germany and France wouldt
be allotted home armies of 200,000t
men, with France allowed an addi-
tional overseas army of 200,000.
These forces would be raised bt
a conscript plan.. The present Ger-
man army is limited by the treaty1
of Versailles to 100,000 volunteersr
who must serve 12 years each.
Chemistry Professor Is
Winner Of $250 Prize
For Research Work
Prof. Werner E. Bachmann of the
organic chemistry department was1
announced yesterday as the 19333
winner of the Henry Russel Award,
made annually to a member of the
faculty not rating higher than assis-
tant professor. The award carries
with it a cash prize of $250.
The announcement was made at1
the annual Henry Russel Lecture, de-
livered yesterday in Natural Science
Auditorium by Prof. Walter B. Pills-
bury, chairman of the psychologyt
d e p a r t m e n t and internationally
known psychologist. Professor Pills-
bury presented his illustrated lec-
ture, "The Unit of Experience: Ges-
talt or Meaning," before a capacity
Professor Bachmann, who was
honored, has been on the faculty1
here since 1925 and is an assistant1
professor of organic chemistry. Some
of the most recent of the 28 papers
he has written were printed inthe
March issue of the American Chem-,
ical Society Journal.
He received the award for research
he has been carrying on over a pe-
riod of several years in re-describingf
a large set of so-called free radicals.
Doubting the correctness of the prin-
ciples that had been laid down over
20 years ago by an eminent German
chemist, Professor Bachmann began
his work in the field and found, after
long work, that the conclusions
reached before, and since included in
all works on organic chemistry, weres
entirely wrong. For this achievement
his name has come to be well-known
in all laboratories in the world, ac-1
cording to local authorities.

Over Ohio, 4-2
By JOHN THOMAS
Art Patchin won his first Confer-
ence start yesterday on Ferry Field
by limiting Ohio State to four hits
and keeping them scoreless after, the
first inning, as his mates converted
six hits and seven. walks offered by
Bobby Blue into a 4-to-2 victory.-'
Rain held up the starting of the
game until 4:30 p. m. yesterday,.
After Prosenjak flied to Teitelbaum
for one out in the first inning, Col-
burn walked and was forced at sec-
ond as Petoskey dropped Lewis' fly
picked it up, and threw to Waterbor1
on the keystone sack. Hale tripled1
Lewis home and Clauson singled Halet
home before McAfee flied out to Artz.
These were the only runs that thei
Buckeye team was able to make as
Patchin tightened up and kept the
other two hits from doing any harm.
Michigan came back in the firsts
inning as Artz led off with a double.i
Waterbor walked and Braendle was1
safe as Blue threw wide to first oni
his grounder. Petoskey flied to Mc-
Afee. Diffley walked in Arts andE
Teitelbaum walked in Waterbor.
With the bases still loaded, Manuell
struck out and Oliver grounded out
to the pitcher.,
Patchin had an easy time in the
second inning, retiring his foes in7
order. Michigan scored twice after
Patchin was out on an attempted
bunt. Artz singled, his second hit in
succession, and went to second asl
Waterbor lined a drive through third,
too hot for Larsen to handle.7
Braendle walked to fill the bases.
Petoskey singled Artz home and
Waterbor scored on Diffley's fly.
With Braendle on third, Petoskey on
first, and Teitelbaum at bat, Blue
caught Petoskey napping threw to4
McAfee who got Ted before he could7
return to the bag, ending the inning.1
The Buckeyes made another double
play in the fifth inning after one
was out and Teitelbaum on first.
Manuel grounded to Blue who threw
to Colburn at second, forcing Teitel-
baum, and the second baseman
whipped the ball to McAfee, getting
Manuel at first.
Patchin doubled with one down in
the sixth but Artz struck out.
Waterbor walked and was forced at
second on Manuel's fielder's choice.

On Today's Program
Between 90 and 100 determined
freshmen, quickly and decisively
beaten by the sophomores in the
first 50-man tug of war, fought back
yesterday afternoon to win the sec-
ond 50-man battle and the free-for-
all, thus gaining a 2-to-1 advantage
at the conclusion of the first day of
the 1933 spring games. The tugs
were staged over the Huron River,
near the Fuller Street bridge.
At 10 am today on South Ferry
Field, a hog-tying' contest and two
flag rushes will decide the winner.
Four points are necessary, and since
each event gives one point the sopho-
mores must make a sweep today to
win. One victory for the freshmen
would assure them a tie, two would
clinch a victory.
Black Eyes And Split Lips
The tugs yesterday resulted in
several split lips, blackened eyes, and
bruised knuckles. After the fresh-
men had conceded their defeat in
the. first match at the end of four
minutes, they won the second
handily. It was all even. The sopho-
mores, now evidently dismayed at
the prospects of a free-for-all in
which they were outnumbered,
wound their end of the rope around
a telephone .ple. and tried. to appear
1i1atwoik while the freshmen
heaved away without gaining an
inch. When the rope finally began
to smoke from friction against a tree
near the sophomore bank, the fresh-
men were given the decision,
When the sophomores failed to
give . up the rope, the freshmen
plunged into the river, waded across,
and battled their way up the bank
with flying fists until they obtained
the coveted rope. The fight lasted
nearly 15 minutes, with real slugging
and prolonged immersions providing
entertainment for the spectators.

have earned two or more letters in

Two Outstanding Players End

By A. ELLIS BALL -
When the curtain falls tonight on
"Murray Hill" the campus dramatic
careers of two outstanding players
will be brought to a close.
Frances "Billee" Johnson, '33, has
been well-known here for her work
during the past, two years in both
Play Production and Comedy Club.
She made her debut last year in
Comedy Club's "The Streets of New
York," directed by Robert Wetzel of
the English department. In addition
has not devoted his efforts towards
acting, he has written several one-
act plays which have been produced
on the campus, and taken parts in
Comedy Club shows, most notably
that of Worthington Smythe, the
drunk nephew in "Murray Hill."
"Nothing Ever Happens," a three-
act play, which was originally plan-
ned for the club's final offering of
the year, catne from the pen of Mr.
Skidmore, and has been acclaimed
by several University professors and
