Depart From
Tradition In
Family Banquet May 12
Is Most Important Of
Two Changes
Brucker Will Give
Spring Games Be t w e ein
Lower Classes Will Be
Spring Homecoming this year will
bring two departures from the tradi-
tional schedule that has been fol-
lowed during the three years since
the annual event began.
Edward McCormick, '34, general
chairman of the committee in charge,
said that the changes are both in re-
sponse to popular demand from stu-
dents who will be hosts to their par-
ents and friends during the three-day
Most'prominent of these is the new
arrangement for the Homecoming
banquet, which will be held Satur-
day, May 12. When Homecoming was
first inaugurated as an annual spring
event, the only banquet included was,
fort mothers and daughters. After
the first year the fathers, who had
been without any event of their own
the first year, were guests at a ban-
quet for themselves and their sons.
This year the schedule calls for a
Family Banquet, which is planned to
take the place of both former tradi-
tional gatherings. The father and
son banquet, and the luncheon for
Michigan mothers are incorporated
in this event. At the banquet Wilber
M. Brucker, former governor of Mich-
igan, will deliver the principal ad-
Another event that has been aban-
doned is the. custom of holding the
Spring Games between members of
the two lower classes on Saturday
morning of Homecoming week-end.
It was felt this year that theeW.
not enough interest in thein t 'W a

the schedule. Neither the Under-g
graduate Council nor the Union of-
ficials saw any use in attempting to
foster another year of the tradition
when both freshmen and sophomores
for several years have been apathetic
concerning them.
Cane Day, which has been con-
tinue l -as a senior tradition this year1
by popular demand, will be held Sun-c
day, May 13. At this time graduating1
seniors will carry for the first timet
their straight sticks which designate

Dr. Ermine C. Case Wil Give
Annual Henry Russet Lecture

Of the nine members of the Uni-
versity faculty who have been se-
lected to deliver the annual Henry
Russel Lecture since the custom be-
gan in 1925-26, seven have been
chairmen of their departments, one
chairman of the executive commit-
tee of the Medical School, and one
director of the pathological labora-
Dr. Ermine C. Case, who was named
chairman of the geology department
at the last meeting of the Board of
Regents and is thus the seventh de-
partment head, will deliver the 1933-
34 lecture at 4:15 p'.m. tomorrow in
Natural Science Auditorium.
Dr. Case is repeating history doubly
in that Prof. William H. Hobbs, pres-
ent geology departm'ent head who
will retire this summer, was the Hen-
ry Russel Lecturer in 1930-31. The
department is the only one which
has had two lecturers from its staff.
Others who have received the hon-
or, which is considered to belong an-
nually to an outstanding member of
the faculty ranking higher than as-
sistant professor, are as follows:
Prof. Moses Gomberg, chairman of
the chemistry department, 1925-26;
Dean Frederick G. Novy of the Medi-
cal School, 1926-27; Prof. Henry A.
Sanders, chairman of the depart-
ment of speech and general linguis-

tics, 1927-28; Dr. Aldred S. Warthin,
former director of the pathological
laboratory, 1928-29; Prof. Claude H.
Van Tyne, head of the history de-
partment, 1929-30.
Professor Iobbs, 1930-31; Prof.
Jesse S. Reeves, chairman of the po-
litical science department, 1931-32;
and Prof. Walter B. Pillsbury, chair-
man of the psychology department,
Dr. Case, whose present position
is professor of historical geology and
paleontology and director of the Uni-
versity Museum, is known as one of
the most outstanding men in his
field in the country. The list of his
writings includes more than 100
books, articles, and monographs, the
best-known of them being his revi-
sions of the Pelycosauria and the Co-
tylosauria of North America and his
reports on the Permo-Carboniferous
vertebrates of the same area.
The latter was published by the
Carnegie Institute of Washington.
In keeping with tradition, the win-
ner of the Henry Russel Award, made
annually to a faculty member not
ranking higher than assistant pro-
fessor on the basis of his promise for
the future, will be announced. Prof.
Werner E. Bachmbann of the chem-
istry department received the Award
last year.


Hull Expresses
Disapproval COf
JapanIn Note
State Secretary Is Awaiting
Reply Fir o m Japanese
On 'Polite' Letter
WASHINGTON, May 1.- (P) -
The state department awaited far
eastern reaction today to its polite but
direct reminder to Japan that claims
of "over-lordship in Asia" must stick
within treaty limits.
Cordell Hull, soft-spoken secretary
of state, unfolded to newsmen Mon-
day night a statemient asserting be-
tw.th sfiMoothW, dipomatie, .language
that the United States does not ap-
prove of Japanese control, as project-
ed, over Chinese affairs.
The statement, delivered in sub-
stance to Foreign Minister Hirota last
Sunday by Ambassador Joseph C.
Grew in Tokio, stated in effect: 1.
That Japan is still a party to treaties
for the maintenance of Chinese sov-
ereignty. 2. That treaties cannot be
legally "modified or terminated" ex-
cept by the processes agreed upon
by the contracting parties. 3. That the
United States has certain rights in
China and proposes to keep them.
Borah Is Pleased
Although both the Japanese ambas-
sador and the Chinese minister here
had 'no immediate statement con-
cerning the American stand toward.
the modified Nipponese policy, there
came from Senator Borah (Rep., Ida.)
a quick statement:
"I like it very much and find my
self in full agreement with it."
In the statement handed out by
Hull it was said:
"Treaties can lawfully be modified
or be terminated only by processes
prescribed or recognized or agreed
upon by the parties to them.
"In the international associations
and relationships of the United States,
the American government seeks to be'
duly considerate of the rights, the
obligations and the legitimate inter-
ests of other countries, and it expects
on the part of other governments due
consideration of the rights, the obliga-
tions and the legitimate interests of
the United States.
Cites Need For Consent
"In the opinion of the American
people and the American government,
no nation can, without the assent of
the other nations concerned, right-
fully endeavor to make conclusive its
will in situations where there are in-
volved the rights, the obligations and
the legitimate interests of other sov-
ereign states."
Although Japan's original state-
ment of April 17 opened the far east-
ern question to international discus-
sion, the Hull reply was based on a
modified and considerably more con-
ciliatory official statement issued on
April 20 with Foreign Minister Hi-
rota's approval.
In it Japan asserted it had no in-
tention of violating existing treaties,
and no desire to close the 'open door'
in China."
TOKIO, May 1. - (P) -The gov-
ernment appeared today to have
adopted a policy of silence at home
regarding its diplomatic exchanges on
Japan's policy toward China abroad.

(By Associated Press)
World wide celebration of May Day
brought disorder, bloodshed, riots,
and milder demonstrations despite
careful police precautions.
Shootings occurred in the United
States, Cuba, and Austria that
claimed casualties. A short-lived riot
broke out after a Communist mass
meeting near Paris, where 1,500 feds
sought to march on the capital.
Fresh disorders broke out at mid-
night Tuesday in Paris when Com-
munists entrenched themselves in a
workers' quarter and opened fire on
police with bullets and missiles.
At Lake Charles, La., one man was
seriously hurt when 15 shots were
fired into a meeting of 300 persons
gathered to discuss the longshore
strike situation. Communists were
held responsible for the burning of
the famous Singer Hall in Augsburg,
Germany, scene of Adolf Hitler's early
attempt to raise a following.
In Havana, bullets fired from
housetops into a parade of 10,000
Communists killed one man and
wounded six others, and created a
bedlam while authorities used tear
gas guns and the marchers scurried
for shelter. Communists accused
ABC secret society members of firing
the shots; police declared Commun-
ists had done so to provoke disorder.
In many places military and po-
lice chiefs had girded themselves for
disorders in view of fiery manifestos
and alleged revolutionary plots. In
these localities the day. passed com-

Members Of Party Have
To Hitch-Hike Back To
Ann Arbor
Student radicals who went to De-
troit to take part in the annual May
Day demonstration yesterday and, in-
cidentally, to show "solidarity with
the workers," met with a rude shock
when the "workers" failed to put in
an appearance and left the students
to conduct an impromptu one-truck
parade of the downtown district amid
thousands of pedestrians and police.
The demonstration ended with a
police escort to the riverside dis-
trict, where the patrolmen forced the
party to leave the truck and disband.
Hitch-Hike Back
With their means of transportation'
gone, members of the party who did ]
not wait for the recovery of the truck
were forced to hitch-hike their 5.-';
back to Ann Arbor, where another
May Day meeting was scheduled to1
be held last night, with A. B. Magill9
of Detroit, editor of the Auto Workers'
News, the speaker. Mr. Magill did not
appear, and neither did many of hisE
prospective audience.E
Organized as only a part of thet
main Detroit May Day celebration,
the student demonstration was the
high spot of the afternoon for hun-
dreds of police who thronged Grand
Circus park in downtown Detroit.
The students left Ann Arbor at noon
yesterday, intending to meet at Clark
Park, Detroit, with members of theI
Young Communists' Party of Detroit,
They were greeted at Clark Park by a
detachment of police who ordered

Edward T. Cheyfitz, '34, of the Na-
tional Student League, was ostensiblyI
in charge of the trip, while the truck1
was driven by the Rev. Alfred LeeI
Klaer, student pastor of the First1
Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor.
Cheyfitz protested to the police in-
spector that as peaceable students1
they had a legal right to meet in the1
park, but the inspector, under the be-
lief that the demonstrators were at

them to "go south."
Cheyfitz then had the group pro-f
ceed downtown, hoping to meet fellow
demonstrators there. And downtown
went 35 student "protesters," sing-
ing the "Internationale," Communist
anthem, and giving lusty cheers for1
the "workers," with an occasional in-k
terpolation of "The Victors."
Cheer Workers
The students came forth with a
"Yea, Workers!" and the crowd
cheered appreciatively. The police
kept hold of their nightsticks.
Motorcycle police swung around the
truck, and the officer in charge or-
dered Mr. Klaer to proceed down
Woodward. The presence of 10 po-
lice gave emphasis to the command.
After following their escort down
to the riverside district, the students1
were rudely surprised when the police

Speeding Through City
Renews Search
CHICAGO, May 1. - UP)- While a
close search was kept up for John
Dillinger in Chicago, a bullet-riddled
automobile reported to have been
speeding through St. Paul today
caused the eyes of the nationwide Dil-
linger hunt to be centered once more
in the Minnesota city.
The sparsity of Dillinger reports
led authorities here to believe that
either the desperado and his follow-
ers had holed up some place or that
the hysteria which followed the sen-
sational escape of the Dillinger gang
from a Federal police trap at Little
Bohemia, Wis., had subsided.;
The bullet-pierced car was reported+
about the time Federal Judge M. M.
Joyce was reducing from $50,000 to
$20,000 the bill of Dr. Clayton May,
Minneapolis physician, and his nurse,
Mrs. Augusta Salt, held on FederalI
charges of harboring Dillinger.
The doctor and nurse were accused

shot wounds in the leg sustained in1
a battle with Federal agents in a St.
Paul apartment March 31. The doctor
has asserted that he was kidnapped,
held prisoner for four days, and forced
to treat the-wounded bandit chief.
The car which aroused the suspicion1
of St. Paul police was a gray Stude-
baker sedan with a Minnesota license.
It had bullet holes in the windshield,
the rear window and the left portion
of the body.
At San Antonio, meanwhile Fed-.
eral agents said George "Baby Face"
Nelson, Dillinger killer, had been posi-
tively identified as the "Jimmy Wil-
liams" to whom H. L. Lebman, Texas
gunsmith, shipped five machine guns
last October. The weapons were sent1
to Minneapolis.

Wolverines' Hitting And

Patchin And Artz
Stars Of Victory
Coach Fischer And Team
Rejoice In Revenge Of
Last Year's Defeat
Two big innings, featured by Mich-
igan's hitting strength and Michigan
State's poor fielding, accounted for
the Wolverines' rout of the Spartans,
13 to 3, in the opening baseball game
of the season here yesterday.
So Coach Ray Fischer and his boys
are rejoicing in sweet revenge for
State's defeat in the opener last year.
Two wearers of the Maize and Blue,
Art Patchin and Avon Artz, were re-
sponsible, to a great extent, for Mich-
igan's excellent showing. Patchin
went the full nine innings on the
mound for the Wolverines, allowing
only five scattered hits, and Artz
starred on the offense hitting safely
on the five occasions when he faced
State hurlers.
Wolverines Bunch Hits
Michigan's batters, going on a hit-
ting spree, knocked two Spartan
pitchers out of the box and badly
mutilated the, third. There was no

conveniently, spelled State's Waterloo
and gave the Wolverines one of the
most satisfying victories in years.

nings. Berg followed him on the

barrage of hits sent him to the dug-
out. Hopkins followed him and with
difficulty finished the game.
Score in Second, Seventh
Michigan did all her scoring in the
second and lucky seventh innings.
Four hits by Waterbor, Artz, Paulson
and Regeczi, two walks and three er-
rors accounted for seven Wolverine
runs in the second inning. Those scor-
ing were Paulson, Chapman, Patchin,
Waterbor, Oliver, Artz and Wistert.
The Spartans did their only scoring
in the sixth frame when they com-
bined a walk and two hits to push
three runs over the plate.
Six More Come In
Michigan, however, came back in
the next inning to score six more runs
and put the game on ice. Six hits, a
walk, a sacrifice, and an error tell
the story. The game took on the ap-
pearance of a track meet when Paul-
son, Regeczi, Chapman, Patchin, 01-
iver and Petoskey crossed the platter
in succession.
Although Berg of State struck out
seven Michigan batsmen, he allowed
10 hits, and issued three free passes.
Patchin was credited with only four
strike-outs, but he had the Spartans
in hand at all times with the excep-
tion of the third inning.
The game was played to a sizeable
crowd of enthusiastic rooters and
lasted until 6:30 p.m.

Prof. Harvey Rohrer of the political
science department, former trade
commissioner in the islands, in dis-
cussing "The Political and Economic
Conditions of the Philippines" before
a meeting of the International Rela-
tions Club last night.
People in the Islands want pres-

tinued. A large percentage of the pop-
ulation may be classed as backward,
he explained, and if we had spent
