French Protest On Issue
Of German Shipments
LONDON, May 11-(A) - High !
British government officials have de-
nied as "ridiculous" reports of a Fran-
co-B r i t i s h controversy regarding{
shipments of British airplane engines
to Germany.
It was stated at the foreign office
that the French ambassador made a
verbal inquiry last week concerning
the sale of such engines in recent
Britain informed the ambassador
she had investigated the shipments
thoroughly on her own account and
had determined that the engines were,
designed solely for civil aviation.
These authorities said that friendly
inquiries were made as France's right
and that Britain gave a full explana-
tion pointing out that the sales cer-
tainly did not infringe upon an agree-
ment of 1926 whereby the two na-
tions pledged themselves not to sup-
ply materials forbidden in peace
It was emphasized that there were
no protests of any kind from France.
It was pointed out that export li-
censes must be obtained in England
for shipments abroad of materials
destined for armament purposes and
officials said that any such materials
leaving England are subject to a full.

Development of Michigan's oil re-
sourecs has now reached the point,
where the State is the leading pro-C
ducer east of the Mississippi river,
Armand J. Eardley of the geology de-
partment stated yesterday. Michi-
gan's production passed that of Penn-
sylvania for the first time in 1933.
"Thirty million barrels were pro-
duced last year," Mr. Eardley said,
"and without drilling any more wells,
40 million more barrels could be pro-
The University is being assisted by
the Michigan State Department of
Conservation in compiling a card in-
dex for every well that has been
drilled. From this a large scale-map
of the lower peninsula is being made
which will show the geological struc-
tures basic to oil accumulation.
Map Is Important
Mr. Eardley said that this map,
which will be 10 by 12 feet, when
completed, will be of decided econom-
ic importance in helping to predict
the accurrence of new oil fields and
the development of old ones.
Faculty men of the geology depart-
ment, assisted by graduate students,
now have the work of preparation well
under way. Mr. Eardley said that
the map will be completed by next
"Michigan is unique among oil pro-
ducing states," Mr. Eardley stated,
"because glacial drift forms a ve-
neer over the bedrock and thus ob-;
scures oil structures as generally ex-
posed in the surface topography. This
fact has retarded the development of
Michigan's oil resources, and will

probably delay rapid prospecting and
prolong the period of oil production
in the State."
Companies Active
Mr. Eardley said that the company
most active in development of the
State's oil resources is the Pure Oil
Co., which began development at Mt.
Pleasant four years ago when the
Muskegon and Saginaw fields had al-
most been forgotten. White Star,
Philips Petroleum, Standard of Indi-
ana, and Shell now have geologists
in the State, and some are drilling
wells. Many independent companies
ire active, both in prospecting and
Episcopal Choir To
Give Last Program
The last of a series of special mu-
sical programs arranged for the year
will be presented at the morning serv-
ice Sunday by the men's and boys'
choir at St. Andrew's Episcopal
The choir, under the direction of
Nowell S. Ferris, organist and choir-
master, will sing two new anthems,
"How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place,"
by Brahms, and "0 Lord, Increase My
Faith," by Gibbon. Parker's arrange-
ment of the psalm, "The Earth is the
Lord's," will also be sung.
George Hildinger will sing the solo
part in the Te Deum. Mr. Ferris' or-
gan prelude will begin at 10:45 a.m.,
with the service at 11 a.m.

Make Changes
In Rules For
Pulitzer Prizes
NEW YORK, May 11. -()-Three
changes in the regulations governing
the annual Pulitzer prize awards in
letters and journalism have been
made by the advisory board of the
Columbia university school of Jour-
nalism, which this year over-ruled
several -of the juries' selections.
The amended regulations will be
in effect next year when the winners
are chosen.
Two of the changes, interpreted
today as a move back to the spirit of
the original will of the late Joseph H.
Pulitzer, consist of the addition, in
brackets, of the phrase, "preferably
dealing with American life," in the
novel and drama award clauses.
The third is an amendment in pro-
cedure, described today by Dr. Nich-
olas Murray Butler, president of Co-
lumbia university, as follows:
Henceforth, the juries in each prize
field will not be expected to make
recommendations for the award of
any prize. Instead, they will present
an eligible list of candidates, with a
statement of the reasons why the
particular candidate is thought wor-
thy of serious consideration.
These eligible lists will then guide
the advisory board-the body charged
by the Pulitzer will with the respon-
sibility of recommending the names
for awards - in making its definite
recommendations to the trustees of
Columbia university.
