Conference Is Supported
By Ruthven As Being of
'Genuine Value'
Preparations for the Michigan Anti-
War Conference this Friday and Sat
urday are nearing completion accord-
ing to the statement yesterday of the
chairman of the Michigan League
Against War and Militarism. An exact
estimate of the number who will at-
tend is not yet available. Reports
which have been received from Ypsi-
lanti and Jackson indicate that 25
students will attend from Michigan
State Normal, and 20 from Jackson
Junior College and Jackson High
School. Students of 20 Michigan col-
leges and several hundred high schools
have been invited in addition to those
of the local campus.
Ruthven Stresses Value
Pres. Alexander G. Ruthven stated
today in regard to the conference,
"The people of this country expect
that the young men and women who
are students in our colleges and uni-
versities today will qualify themselves
to take responsible positions as cit-
izens in the future. Whether or not
they will lead or follow in the conduct
of public affairs, they can at least
prepare themselves to contribute an
element of intelligence to the consid-
eration of public affairs, and accus-
tom themselves to read and think be-
fore they discuss, and to discuss be-
fore they take a position or act. Stu-
dent conferences on questions of pub-
lic interest, at which an important
topic is considered from every angle,
are undoubtedly of genuine value on
grounds such as these."
Word has been received from World
Peaceways, Inc., that they intend to
give the winning poster of the Anti-
War Poster Contest national publica-
tion. The posters, some of which have
been on display at State St. stores,
are now being considered by the judg-
ing committee, and the winners of the
$30 collegiate prize and the three high
school prizes will be announced at
the opening symposium of the confer-
ence at 7:30 p.m. Friday.}
War Symposium Friday
The symposium Friday on the topic
"Why War?" will be addressed by
three student speakers in addition to
the main speakers, Pres. Philip Nash
of Toledo University, Kermit Eby of
Ann Arbor High School, and Prof. L.
E. Cole of Oberlin College. The three
students who have been selected are
William Rohn of Ann Arbor High
School, Miss K. H. Cama, Grad., and
David R. Hobbs, '35L.
Faculty members are invited to at-
tend the commissions on "Militarism
in Education," "Imperialism and
War," "Fascism and War," and
"Mounting Armaments and War Pre-
vention," Saturday morning on an
equal basis with students, it was an-
nounced today.
Radicals Riot
Against Police
PARIS, May 2. - (A') - Communist
hatred of police flared anew in street
battles tonight among the teeming
slums where May Day rioters had
rained pistol fire and bricks on guards
a few hours earlier.
Several hundred manifestants-
after a meeting at the "Joan of Arc
city" municipal apartments which
Rightists says is a revolutionary cn-
ter ripped up newly repaired pave-
ments and attempted to build bar-
Police reinforcements again be-

seiged the huge tenement block which
served as the Red citadel during
sharp encounters between last mid-
night and 5:30 a.m. today in which
20 communists were injured.
In the first encounter - a sensa-
tional sequel to May Day - women
and children in the crowded tene-
ment - 4,000 persons live in the 900
small flats - escaped injury although
gaping holes in the inside walls show
where plaster and bricks were dug
out for missiles.

Punish Participants

Baromeo, '17,
Will Sing For
t MayFestival
Was Prominent In Glee
Club, Theatrical, A n d
Musical Productions
When Michigan's outstanding an-
nual musical event, the forty-first
May Festival, is given here May 9, 10,
11, and 12, an important assemblage
of great opera and concert stars will
participate in the six concerts offered.
Although the majority of these are
foreign-born stars, and several are
appearing before the Festival audi-
ences for the first time, one artist
will find Ann Arbor and its environs
not unnatural. He is Chase Baromeo,
distinguished bass of the Chicago,
LaScala, and South America opera
Changed Name After Leaving
Mr. Baromeo will find Ann Arbor
a familiar place because he graduated
from the University in 1917. When
he was a University student he was
known as Chase Baromeo Sikes, but
he dropped the last name upon his
entrance into grand opera. At Mich-
igan, Baromeo was prominent in the
Glee Club and various musical and
theatrical productions. He was point-
ing toward a business career in the
employment of his father, Clarence
S. Sikes, an official of the Pere Mar-
quette Railroad, when the United
States entered the war. Upon his
( graduation, he volunteered and saw
two years of service in France with
the A.E.F.
In 1919, when he returned, Baro-
meo decided to forsake business and
devote his time to the study of music.
He studied for three years in this
country and then went to Milan for
final coaching. He made his debut
there and in a short time he was en-
gaged for leading roles at La Scala.
Appeared On Continent
During the summer and early fall,
he accepted South American engage-
ments at the Colon in Buenos Aires
and also appeared in various places
throughout Germany, Italy, and
France. In 1927, he returned to the
United States to join the Chicago
Civic Opera Company, where for
several seasons he made an outstand-
ing success as the leading bass. He
has several times before been heard
in Festivals here and has always been
an Ann Arbor favorite.
Mr. Baromeo will appear in the
Thursday evening program, May 10,
in the presentation of Haydn's "The
Seasons," and in the American pre-
miere of Robert Heger's "Ein Fried-
enslied," Saturday evening.
Police Believe
John Dillinger
Is InChicago
CHICAGO, May 2-- (A)- John
Dillinger apparently was hiding here
Police prepared for a re-combing of
his haunts after finding today the
bloodstained automobile stolen by
Dillinger henchmen from a south St.
Paul man in the mad dash from raid-
ed Little Bohemia in narthern Wis-
consin a week ago.
The car bore Illinois license plates
but was readily identified by its mo-
tor numbers as the -Minnesota-li-

censed machine.
The front seat was stained with
blood. Policeman James Dyer, of
the automobile detail, said that ap-
parently one of the passengers had

Campus May Day junketeers who
took part in the Detroit demonstra-
tion Tuesday will be asked to appear
before the University Disciplinary
Committee at 1:30 p.m. today to pre-
sent their version of the day's activ-
ities, Prof. E. Blythe Stason chairman
of the committee of the Law School,
said last night.
Professor Stason said that the
hearings today, which will be indi-
vidual, will be solely to find out the
true story of what happened Tues-
day, and that no punitive action will
be taken pending completion of the
Although any penalty up to expul-
sion may be meted out by the com-
mittee, Professor Stason indicated
that he had no preconceived ideas
on the hearing and had not, as yet,
considered any definite action which
might be taken.
Faculty Men On Body
Membership in the permanent com-
mittee also includes Prof. Arthur E. R.
Boak, head of the history department,
and Prof. Charles T. Olmstead of the
engineering college. Prof. I. D. Scott
of the geology department will repre-
sent the literary college and Dean
G. Carl Huber the graduate school.
As an aftermath of the parade of
the downtown Detroit district which
ended in the clubbing of both a stu-
dent and a teaching fellow in the lit-
erary college by a uniformed police-
man, members of the party said that
the patrolman was given no justifica-
tion for "his brutal attack."
Student Committee Picked
At a meeting of the National Stu-
dent League last night, a committee
was named to present the group's
views to the Disciplinary Committee.
Members said that no student would
speak individually, and that the com-
mittee would do the talking for the
whole group. Later last night they
reversed this policy.
Yesterday afternoon another com-
mittee visited Detroit to protest the
"rough treatment" which, they said,
they had received. Mayor Frank Couz-
ens was not in, and they then lodged
a complaint with Police Commissioner
Herman A. Pickert.
They reported that Commissioner
Pickert assured them that he would
conduct an investigation, and that, if
their charges were substantiated, he
would communicate with them as soon
as possible.
Phi Beta Kappa
Members Will
Hear Historian
Prof. Wilbur Cortez Abbott of the
history department of Harvard Uni-
versity will address the initiation
banquet of Phi Beta Kappa, national
honorary scholastic society, at 6:30
p.m. today in the Union. His topic
will be "Scholarship and Education."
Sixty-one new members were for-
mally initiated into the local chapter
in a ceremony yesterday in the
League Chapel.
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the
history department, speaking at the
initiation, declared that the change
some time ago of Phi Beta Kappa
from a secret to an open society is
symbolic of the change corresponding
in the field of knowledge and learn-
"Dictatorships may suppress the
universities and university men," he
said, "but in every country and every
field this honor society will always
stand for the 'open conspiracy' and
the open truth."
Seniors To Have Final
Chance To Pay Dues
Members of the senior class will
have their final opportunity to
make payment of class dues in
the next week and a half, accord-

ing to an announcement made last
night by Harry Hattenbach, '34,
class treasurer
