and 13, was announced yesterday by
Edward W. McCormick, '34, general
chairman. Exhibitions, tours of the'

Ruthven Cites Service
In his message, President Ruthven
points out that parents and the Uni-
versity are working toward the same
objective - the education of their
children and students - and conse-
quently the University is eager to have
mothers and fathers see Michigan in
Homecoming differs from all other
campus events for visitors in that it
gives them an opportunity to see
the University as it actually is while
work is going on, and they may at-'
tend classes if they desire, McCormick
Julie Kane, '35, assistant chairman,
announced that active support from
all sorority and independent women
will be solicited this year to insure the
success of the plans. How this will be

tied yet, she said, but will be an-
nounced after vacation.
New Ceremony Expected
It is expected that the ceremony
which the Undergraduate Council
plans for seniors to replace Swingout
will also be held this weekend. The'
dates of Homecoming also coincide
with those of the annual May Fes-i
tival, which is a carrying out of the
general policy of the homecoming
committee this year - to make the
event serve as a general culmina-1
tion of all University activities. Cane
Day, annual date on which graduating
students carry canes as signs of their
position, will probably be May 13. 1
Registration of weekend visitors
will take place in the Union, League,

Find American Aviator Alive
In Jungle Month After Crash

CALI, Columbia, April 5. - (/') -
Primitive Indians searching for treas-
ure found Newton C. Marshall, of Mil-
waukee, alive today, the sole survivor
of an airplane accident March 10 in
the Bolivia-Valle Department which
took a toll of five lives, an official an-
nouncement said.
Weak and ill, Marshall, who had
been the plane's pilot, had wandered
for weeks through the dense jungles
of that mountainous region. Escaping
with his life from the wrecked plane,
Marshall was saved just in time from
a horrible death in the "jungle hell"
from which few white menhave ever
emerged alive.
Marshall was almost completely ex-
hausted and found it almost impos-
sible to talk when he was located by a
tribe of Indians called the Guaqueros,
famed for the use of poison arrows in
years gone by.
The Scadta Airline, which owned
the plane, rushed a physician and
nurse from Cali aboard a special plane
and two employees of the company
were sent from Bogota to the region
where Marshall was reported located.

Identification was officially made,
the announcement stated, through
papers and a passport which Mar-
shall was carrying.
The Choco-Pacific Co., one of the
largest platinum producers in the
world, of which Marshall was man-
ager, was notified immediately and a
group of officials left at once for
the Bolivar Department to meet him.
Considerable confusion was caused
tonight by the official statement that
five bodies had been found in the
wreck. At the time of the accident,
the Scadta Co. had said that the plane
had carried but four people, Marshall,
Capt. Walter Geck, Julio Zuniga, a
government employe, and an uniden-
tified German.
Reports from the region stated
that the planehwas not completely
destroyed and that it contained the
gold cargo which had been shipped
in it, destined for the government
mint in Medellin.
When it crashed, the plane was
en route from Quibdo to Cartago over
the great Choco mining area where
gold and platinum are often trans-
ported by air. ,

Defeat Wings
Second Time
4-1 Victory Brings Chicago
Close To World Title
And StanleyCup
DETROIT, April 5.-Chicago's bird
of prey, the Blackhawks, were in full
flight toward a world's hockey title
tonight as they routed Detroit's fal-
tering Red Wings 4 to 1 in their Stan-
ley Cup series. Chicago scored in the
opening period and then added three
goals in the final frame as the Wings
desperately attempted to draw up on
even terms with their opponents.
After the second Chicago score the
Wings sent five men down the ice,
but Gottselig took the puck and
passed to Couture who put it through
Cude cleanly at 5:34 in the third pe-
riodforte .invaders t y.tall.
The Wings again; sent five men
down, and again Gottselig stole the
puck, skated down on Cude and scored
without difficulty at 18:02, the Wing
goalie never having a chance to save.
All through the game Chuck Gar-
diner of Chicago showed why he is
regarded as the premier goalie of the
league. He was making impossible
stops time after time, especially dur-
ing the second period when the Wings
had him doing everything but hand-
springs in the goal mouth.
Detroit has apparently not regained
the form which they showed against
Toronto last Friday, their lack of
timing on passes showing up badly
when they got inside the Chicago
blue line.
The two teams will journey to Chi-
cago where they will play the third
game of the series Sunday night,
with the Hawks an odds on favorite to

Stylish Seniors To
Tote Straight Sticks
For Cane Ceremony
Fashion is to be the keynote for the
class of '34! The cane committee has
decided to abolish the old-fashioned
curved handle cane and adopt the
stylish straight stick, of black ebony
with an ivory handle. Below the
handle is a sterling silver ring with
the class numerals and a block M.
No one seems to know when the
tradition began that seniors should
carry canes as a mark of distinction.
It probably dates back to the days'
when class rivalry was the vogue.
After swingout the juniors and sen-
iors often were engaged in terrific
battles. These canes might have been
used for protection against the jun-
iors. Also it was not uncommon to"
see a senior with his best girl on
one arm and the cane on the other
go parading down State Street the
Sunday after Swingout.
With the abolition of swingout the
date for the event has not been de-
cided. It will probably be the week-
end of May 12, as swingout was to
have been scheduled for May 11.
Orders for the canes are being taken
at Burr, Patterson and Auld, and will
not be accepted later than April 20.
Senate Refuses
Plan To Raise
Income Taxes
Lafollette Brought Issue,
With Proposed Increase'
Of Two Per Cen
WASHINGTON, April 5-() -
The Senate decided today against
lifting the income tax rate a little
higher all along the line.
The issue, fought over every time a
tax bill comes before Congress, was
brought by Senator LaFollette (Rep.,
Wis.) He sought to raise the normal
income tax rate from 4 per cent, as
provided in the House bill that was
before the Senate, to 6 per cent and
hoist the surtax rates.
Majority Leader Opposed
The majority leader and Demo-
cratic members of the Senate finance
committee opposed the proposal. Sen-
ators Norris (Rep., Neb.) and Long
(Dem., La.) joined Lafollette in ad-
vocating it. They argued the high
emergency expenditures and the
growing deficit created a need for
more taxes. Opponents said that
higher taxes might hinder recovery.
Between directing the tax bill
through the Senate, the finance com-
mittee listened to the arguments of
Senator Long against the confirma-
tion of D. D. Moore as internal reve-
nue collector at New Orleans.
There was more testimony about
race tracks and gambling in New Or-
leans during the course of which Long
invited a witness to meet him out-
side. There was no meeting, how-
ever, although the witness indicated
he was not averse.
Bank Bill Passed
The Senate banking committee
worked on the new stock regulation
bill after listening to complaints

stock exchange regulation. had

mobile labor board to end a strike
in one automobile company's plant,
and a reiteration by Henry Ford of

The strike was in the Mack Ave.
plant of the Motor Products Co.,
where labor leaders said 1,000 men
had walked out because wage increas-

At almost the same time Matthew

Saturday unless wage increases are
agreed to.
Meanwhile at Racine, Wis., the
automobile labor board was in its
third day of hearings on the strike of

his company was operating profitably

The contest was made possible by
the bequest in 1928 of one-fifth of
the estate of the late Avery Hopwood,

seconds. Crabbe's mark was made
in the Olympic tryouts at New Ha-

The meet record was cracked in
the 100-yard free style by Walter
Spence of Rutgers, wearing the col-

Spence turned in a time of 51.1 sec-
