through the addition of interest and
further grants, the capital will grow
to $20,000, the income from which

One Event; Relays WOn
In Good Time
Michigan's Varsity swimming team,
by virtue of overwhelming all-around
strength, defeated a valiantly fight-

being 58 to 26.
Mike Peppe has brought the Buck-
eyes a long way forward since they
entered Conference swimming com-
petition only three years ago but his
youngsters were no match for the
title-bound Wolverines, who lost first
place in only one event.

their usual form in. the relays to
take both of them in good time.
Ogden Dalrymple, Tex Robertson,
and Derland Johnston revealed them-
selves as almost certain point win-
ners in the big meets this year, al-
though all three are competing on
the Varsity for the first time. Dal-
rymple, besides swimming on the two
winning relay teams, took a first
place in the 50-yard dash, in the
good time of 25 seconds, fiat.
Robertson, the highly-touted soph-
omore from the West, came through
in a tie for first in the 100 with his
teammate, Henry Kamienski, and
pushed Cristy all the way in the 220,
finishing second.
Derland Johnston stamped himself
as a 'potential Degener when he fin-

The game was bitterly contested
throughout as each six fought des-

first period was especially rough with
four penalties being inflicted during
the melee.-
The Michigan defense was some-

and only remarkable goal tending by

Nazi Newspaper Charges
Kaiser With Treason For
1933 Message
(By Associated Press)
A growing determination among
three large former allied powers to
preserve Austrian independence was
indicated yesterday.
The critical stage in European af-
fairs, along with the disarmament
crisis, kept worried diplomats working
Italy, France and Great Britain
were reported on the threshold of;
warning Germany that it must stay;
clear of the government of Chancel-,
lor Dollfuss.
Sponsored By Italy
This proposal of a "moral bloc"
to keep Austria out of Nazi hands is
sponsored by Italy.
Great significance in both the Aus-
trian and the arms problems was at-'
tached to the visit of Captain An-
thony Eden, lord privy seals of Great
Britain, to the continent .
He left yesterday for Paris, Berlin
and Rome. The British foreign office4
said his trip was concerned only with1
London's recent proposal for a ten-'
year armament plan, recognizing
Germany's equality to arms.1
The foreign affairs committee of
the French chamber of deputies
urged that vigorous action be taken
to maintain Austrian freedom.
To Give Non-Military Aid l
France and Czechoslovakia, it was
reported, have decided to give the
Dollfuss government non-military
aid. Dr. Edourd Benes, foretln min-
ister of Czechoslovakia, denied public.,
charges that his country had aided
the Socialist uprising in Austria.
The Hitlerite newspaper "Reichs-
wart" of Berlin said former Kaiser
Wilhelm had committed high treason
against Germany by a message in
1933 which said "only under its Kai-
ser and the German federated princes
can the Reich permanently be estab-
lished and restored to its former
power and glory," and "I am con-
vinced every old officer will do every-
thing within his power to give evi-
dence of his loyalty by manly deeds.''
League of Nations circles admitted
that France's latest arms note to
Germany, closing the door to bilat-
eral discussion, had put disarmament
in its most critical stage.
Meeting Of Powers Favored
Geneva apparently favors a special
meeting of the big powers, including
the United States, before April 10,-
when the steering committee of the
world disarmament conference is to
This, it was said, is one of the
objects of Eden's trip.
The semi-official German news-
paper Diplomatische Korrespondenz
said France was to blame for "a new
crisis in international relations" by
its arms stand.
In an interview at Bratislava,
Czechoslovakia, where he is in refuge,
Dr. Julius Deutsch, Austrian Socialist
leader, blamed the government of

Chancellor Dollfuss for hundreds of
deaths in the fighting.

Austrian Issue
Brings Battle
In New York
Socialist Mass Meeting Is
Turned Into Shambles
As Communists Riot
NEW YORK, Feb. 16.- (P) - A
mass meeting called as a huge trade
union and Socialist demonstration
against the "slaughter of Austrian
workers" turned into a bitter free-
for-all fight between Socialists and
Communists this afternoon.
Boos and yells, thumping fists and
flying chairs filled the vast confines
of Madison Square Garden as groups
of strategically placed Communists
tried to break up the meeting.
One man was stabbed in the back,
and three women and nine other men
were beaten or struck with chairs.
Two newspaper photographers were
among' the injured and the camera
of one was smashed.
The general free-for-all threatened
to become a riot of serious propor-
tions when a slim, blond figure -
Clarence Hathaway, editor of the
Communist "Daily Worker" - leaped
to the speakers platform. Socialists
on the platform seized him, rushed
him off, and beat him as he was
pushed against a guard rail at one
side of the platform.
At this signal the Garden, with its
23,000 excited inhabitants became a
bedlam. The Socialists and labor
"ushers"--1,000 of them in red arm
bands-got most of the crowd into
their seats, with tremendous effort,
but after that policemen began edg-
ing in until there were 50 of them
around the hfl."ThsYhad beer-
dered not to bring their night sticks.
Mayor LaGuardia was to have
spoken, but was warned of the riot-
ous nature of the meeting and stayed
The meeting was called jointly by
the Socialist party and various labor
unions, and was intended to protest
against "the ruthless suppression of
the trade union and socialist move-
ment in Austria and the slaughter of
thousands of Austrian workers."

mon Council in the forthcoming elec-
tion to state whether or not they.

Program Of Academy Reveals
Searching Quest For Solutions

Discussion of significant problems
in the fields of economics, history,
and political science, combined with
a general survey of research in sci-
ence and the arts, was revealed to be
the keynote of the 1934 session of
the Michigan Academy of Science,
Arts and Letters yesterday when the
program of the meetings which will
be held March 15 to 17, was dis-
Dr. Charles Howard McIlwain, Pul-
itzer prize-winner and Eaton pro-
fessor of science and government at
Harvard University, who has been se-

speaking on the situation in the
United States with respect to recent
tendencies of this country in the di-
rection of centralization of power in
the hands of the President. Prof.
Preston W. Slosson and Prof. Arthur
S. Aiton, both of the University his-
tory department, will take up the
question of dictatorsips in Europe and
South America respectively.
Prof. I. L. Sharfman, chairman of
the economics department and au-
thority on economic problems, will
lead a round-table' discussion on the
NRA and industrial control at the
section of economics and -sociology


Continuation of the Good Will
Fund for needy students on campus,
will-not necessitate a general campus
drive for the present, at least, it was
announced yesterday by Gilbert R.
Bursley, '34, president of the Under-
graduate Council.
Students are still being helped with
money remaining from last year's
drive, and the Fund is continually
being augmented by miscellaneous
donations while the Ann Arbor Com-
munity Fund is again making a con-
tribution. The J-Hop committee will
probably devote a share of its profits
and the Union has agreed to again
sponsor an all-campus boxing show,
Bursley said.
The Council does not wish to "sad-

ber of those students needing finan-
cial assistance will' gain it through
new student jobs being made avail-
able by the FERA. If any student is
unable to benefit by this plan, how-
ever, he is urged to apply at the office
of the Dean of Students for either a
loan or direct aid, Bursley said.
Belief that there are students in
distress and that there is continued
need for such assistance as is pro-
vided by the Good Will Fund was ex-
pressed yesterday, and students were
requested not to "so weaken them-
selves in an endeavor to secure an
education as to make it difficult to
derive the maximum benefits from
that education."

New Penalties
For Students
Are Suggested
Undergraduate C o u n c il
Members Seek Means Of
A new method of dealing with ir-
regularities occurring in student ex-
tra-curricular activities, was suggest-
ed by some members of the Under-
graduate Council last night as fur-
ther investigation against two J-Hol
ticket scalpers continued.
The new method, instead of sus-
pending the student for a stated
length of time, would deprive him of
certain functions on campus. Thus
he might be deprived of his athletic
coupon book or his Union member-
ship card. It would be possible to
continue the penalties still further
and deprive the guilty person of re-
ceiving his diploma in Commence-
ment exercises and participation in
the exercises.
Not all the members of the Counci
had seen the proposals last night,
but those that had seemed to be di
vided upon the value of the sugges
tion. A number believed that some
