To Enter Race
For N.Y. Mayor
Announces Campaign To
Fight Both Democratic,
Republican 'Bossism'
NEW YORK, Sept. 29 -(A. P.) -
Joseph V. McKee finally jumped into
the mayoralty fight today as an in-
dependent democrat, dedicating him-
self to a war on "bossism, both dem-
ocratic and republican."
Ending two days of uncertainty
which threw the mayoralty campaign
into a turmoil, McKee assailed John
F. Curry, "boss" of Tammany Hall;
John H. McCooey, Brooklyn demo-
cratic leader, and called Fiorello H.
LaGuardia, fusion candidate, "a poor
compromise by a faction of would-be
With McKee, mortgage banker and
former university professor entering
the three-cornered race, Tammany
backers of Mayor John P. O'Brien
and fusion strategists began formu-
lating plans for a campaign which
promised to become one of the bit-
terest in the City's history.
McKee's candidacy w as nade
known on the plaza of the city hall
-interpreted as' a further gesture
of defiance to Tammany and the city
administration. A few feet away,
Mayor O'Brien, refusing to comment,
sat with the Board of Estimate.
McKee, backed by Edward J.
Flynn, Bronx democratic leader and
close friend of President Franklin. D.
Roosevelt, and reported to have the
tacit support of Postmaster General
James A. Farley, launched into his
blistering attack on bossism and the
fusion leaders.-
"I now dedicate myself to the serv-
ice of the voters of this city who
want bossism, both democratic and;
republican, ended for all time; who
want honesty and intelligence to re-
place corruption and stupidity in
public office and who want the city's
credit restored," said the youthful
"To accomplish this is my sole pur-
pose in making this difficult deci-
"There is no real fusion in this
campaign," he said. "The so-called
fusion standard-bearer is as objec-
tionable to our republican citizenry
as he is to the vast army of demo-
crats who are disgusted with ma-
chine politics."
Asserting that he would be free
from political domination, McKee
said that he decided to run after be-
ing urged by many persons tired of
"an arrogant leadership of stupidity
and corruption unmatched since the
days of Boss Tweed."

But Girls May Be Rushed
By Others; Thetas Still
Retain Pledging Right
After voluntarily informing offi-

they had violated rushing rules by
contacting freshman girls in their
rooms, members of Kappa Alpha
Theta sorority yesterday were told
could not entertain those rushees
during the remainder of the rushing
It was reported, however, that the
rushees were eligible for invitations
to other sororities, and that they
would be allowed to pledge Kappa
Alpha Theta at the conclusion of the
rushing period if they desired.
Officers of the sorority concerned
blamed ignorance of the rushing
rules on the part of certain mem-
bers for the incident, adding that
officers of the Panhellenic Associa-
tion, were immediately informed of
the violation when a study of the
rules showed that illegal tactics had
been practiced.
Members of the sorority went to
Betsy Barbour House to invite sev-
eral rushees to their formal dance,
unaware that they were violating the
rules,maccording- to their rushing
The section of the rushing rules
broken by Kappa Alpha Theta reads:
"No personal contact between soro-
rity women and rushees may be had
at this time (Sept. 23 to Oct. 4) or
any other time during this period
of rushing outside of the allotted
dates, except in the case of sisters."

Choose October 26
As Inaugural Date
Purpose Of Series Is To
Acquaint Students With
Leading University Men
Eight of the outstanding members
of the University faculty have been
chosen by Dr. Frank E. Robbins,

ed by the president to arrange uni-

In explaining the choice of the
eight faculty men, Dr. Robbins said:
"Ordinarily there have been during
the academic year a number of Uni-
versity lectures by visitingescholars
from other institutions, both in the
United States and abroad. The fact
has possibly not been fully appre-
ciated that Michigan's own faculties
contain in their membership experts
quite as authoritative as the lecturers
who have come from other institu-
tions. The present series has been
organized with a view to permitting
the University community to become
acquainted with some of the leading
scholars among the faculty, and also
to present a series of lectures which
is in general designed to bring before
University audiences accounts of the
present status in certain general
fields of thought. This is an innova-
tion which is prompted by sugges-
tions which frequently have been
made by members of the faculty and
others in the past,

duced to the general University audi-
ence, Dr. Robbins said.1

HAVANA, Sept. 29.-(A)-FPront-
door deliveries of news stories seldom
occur, but employes of the Associated
Press in this city "enjoyed" that ex-
perience today.
In the midst of the fighting be-
tween soldiers and communists, the
scene of the most intense activity
shifted twice to the front door of the
Diario de la Marina newspaper build-
ing, in which the Associated Press
office is situated.
Soldiers barricaded themselves be-
hind stone pillars under the windows
and balconies of the building and
opened fire on snipers with rifles
and machine guns.
The noise of the firing was deaf-
ening inside the building, and it was
almost impossible to carry on tele-
phone conversation.
Bullets peppered the stone walls
with nerve-shattering regularity.
Inside the employes moved about
in a half-stoop and when the fire

became heavier, reporters dropped to
the floor where they sprawled out
and wrote their stories in longhand.
Others crouched behind desks
checking injured lists at hospitals
over the telephone.
They were virtually prisoners in
their offices because owners of the
building had barred and locked all
but one door and it was in the very
center of the battle.
Machine gun and rifle bullets flat-
tened themselves against the doorway
but now and then some workers
slipped out and surveyed the situa-
One civilian fell wounded in the
doorway and comrades, working
under heavy fire, tossed him into an
automobile and rushed away.
An occasional lull would restore
the normal office routine but most
of the time the lulls were short-

GENEVA, Sept. 29 -(A. P.) -
League of Nations circles believed to-

companied by a noticeable stiffening
of the German attitude, openly voic-
ed in German circles.nOne declara-
tion was that the crying need is the
disarmament of Germany's neigh-
The foreign minister told German
nevspaper correspondents before his
departure that Germany will insist
on the right to possess arms at a
level to which neighboring countries
eventually would descend. This was
joined with the understanding that
Germany would be entitled to begin
construction of these arms when any
agreement drawn up begins to func-
If this German attitude is adopt-
ed, it was recognized in League cir-
cles as meaning pressure would be
brought to bear on France to begin
the destruction of big guns, bombing
planes, and light categories, in addi-
tion to reducing the number of men
under colors.
Some of the English delegates in-
sisted tonight there should be no re-
armament of Germany.
Meanwhile, Dr. V. K. Wellington
Koo, Chinese minister to France, told
the League of Nations assembly
"ominous clouds are arising on the
far eastern horizon."
"The race for armaments has be-
gun with the huge naval and air
maneuvers, fleet concentration, the
fortifying of bases, and enormous in-
creases in war expenditure," he said.
He criticized the Japanese invasion
of Manchuria and mentioned that
country's continued defiance of the
assembly's report classing it as in
violation of the pact of Paris.

Deputies Are Helpless As
Crowd Practically Takes

(By Associated Press),
In the third offensive within a
week, a mob of nearly 3,000 striking
coal miners made a "big push" into
Clairton, Pa., yesterday, storming
gates of the Carnegie Steel Co. plant
and virtually taking possession of
the town as deputies stood by help-
Meanwhile, as Governor Pinchot of
Pennsylvania arrived at Hyde Park
for a conference with President
Franklin D. Roosevelt relative to set-
tlement of difficulties in the strife-
torn area, the President announced
that agreement had been reached by
NRA officials to bring mines owned
by the steel companies under the
terms of the coal code hour and
wage provisions.
The President, prepared to approve
the agreement if provisions were sat-
isfactory to him, said he expected it
to bring strikers in mines and steel
factories back to work by Monday.
At Clairton the strikers charged
the plants were using coal imported
from the South due to the mining
"holiday" in Fayette county. Strikers
ripped clothing from sonre workers,
roughly handled some others, and
shouted threats as police stood by
fearful that intervention would cause
Since Wednesday the strikers
claimed 10,000 persons had joined
them to shut down plants of the
Wierton Steel Co. at Wierton and
Clarksburg, W. Va., and Steubenville,
Officials of the Ford Motor Co. de-
clined to comment on reports that
pickets from the eastern assembly
plants might make a drive on the
huge Detroit plant. There was no
comment on the walkout and clos-
ing of the Chester, Pa., plant,, or
walkout at the Edgewater, N. J., and
Richmond, Calif., plants.
In Cincinnati, announcement was
made that a board of 16 had been
chosen to administer the coal code
in the West Viginia district exclu-
sive of the northern part of the
state, eastern Kentucky, Tennessee,
and Virginia.

Students And ABC Lend
Aid To Heaviest Patrol
Ever On Havana Streets
HAVANA, Sept. 29.-(I)-Wide-
spread and heavy firing thioughout
Havana started late today when the
Army set out to disperse thousands
of communist demonstrators. It re-
sulted, according to a preliminary
check, in the killing of four persons
and the wounding of an undeter-
mined number.
Among the wounded was an Amer-
ican, Joe Gibson, 46 years old, Uni-
versal Newsreel photographer, shot
four times in the leg.
The clatter of machine guns and
the firing of rifles and pistols re-
duced Havana to a scene of the wild-
est disorders as students and ABC
radical members joined the heaviest
army forces ever to patol Havana,
streets. An army tank with machine
guns was rushed to the scene of
action, and cavalry galloped through
the streets.
Demonstrate For Student
The early outbreaks of shooting
centered along Reina Street, where
communists were reported to have
sniped at the soldiers from the top
of the Anti-Imperialist Leaguehead-
quarters at Reina and Gervasio
The communist demonstration was
in honor of Julio Antonio Mella, a
student leader killed in Mexico in
1929, whose ashes were brought here
this week in tin boxes.
Early reports indicated that one
army captain and four soldiers, in-
cluding one nachine-gunner were
among the wounded. Capt. Hernan-
dez Ruda was in a critical condi-
Later in the afternoon heavy firing
began around the Diario de la Ma-
rina Newspaper Building, where the
Associated Press offices are situated.
Persons entering the building said
that a number of persons were killed
or wounded in the volley of shots.
Soldiers Destroy Obelisk
The demonstration was to have
been climaxed at a brick obelisk in
the park, where Mella's ashes were
to have been buried. The soldiers,
however, stopped men working on
the memorial, destroyed it and then
posted guards to see that no one
Three hundred soldiers had been
called out to patrol the streets,
but what started the shooting could
not be determined immediately.
As rifle, pistol and machine-gun
fire began popping from a number
of points, thousands in the streets,
including throngs of curious not as-
sociated with the communists, rushed
for cover. A general strike called by
the National Confederation in con-
nection with the Mella demonstra-
tion had closed virtually all doors,
The firing started soon after the
communists, carrying banners at-
tacking the Ramon Grau San Mar-

An enrollment of 95, including 67
graduate students for the twenty-
fifth session of the University Biolog-
ical Station held from June 26 to
August 19, at Lake Douglas, Cheboy-
gan County, was reported by Prof.
George R. LaRue, director of the
"The session was a distinct suc-
cess," Professor LaRue said, "both
because our enrollment was increased
over last year, while many of the
units of the Summer Session showed
a loss in enrollment, and also be-
cause the weather was most favorable
and the students had little difficulty
in their field work."
In addition to the academic work,
several outside projects were com-
pleted, including the construction of
several miles of fire lane and a num-
ber of miles of road for fighting fires.
This work was directed by Prof. W.
F. Ramsdell and Noman Munster of

"The reason for this construction
of fire protection equipment," Pro-
fessor LaRue said, "is that we find
it advisable to safeguard the 600,-
000 pine trees which have been do-
nated by the State Conservation De-
partment and set out under the di-
rection of the forestry school in the
past few years, in addition to other
valuable timber on the University-
owned tract of 4,000 acres."
"The high point of this year's ses-
sion was the celebration, August 5
and 6, of the twenty-fifth anniver-
sary of the Station's founding," Pro-
fessor LaRue said.
Visitors at the camp during the
summer included Seymour Hadwen,
Dominion Biological Service, To-
ronto; Prof. R. M. Strong, depart-
ment of anatomy, Loyola University
Medical School; a former member of
the station staff; and Dean Davis,
of the University of Illinois Medical
