WASHING TON, May 12. --- /'? -
The government rushed to the rescue
today of drought-stricken farmers
harassed by weather conditions un-
precedented for forty springs past.
The administration prepared to hit
along three lines. The Federal relief

The third prong in the program was
a reported study by the administra-
tion of a lon'g-time national plan
for), eveniiig rp the supply between
wood and bad years so as to prevent
any poible future food shortage.
President Roosevelt and his cabinet
spent considerable time Friday exam-
ining information on the drought area
gathered by Secretary Wallace. The
P.resident was understood t o have
called for further 'reports.
Farm administration leaders had
their heads together today and

planned to continue conferences
through most of the week-end.
Active in the parleys were Dr. A. G.
Black, head of the corn-hog section,
an George E. Farrell, head of the
wheat section, both of whom have :lust
returned from western trips.
The administration Friday made
the first gesture of government aid for
farmers suffering from the cumula-
tive effect of drought, heat and soil-
blowing which covered the entire east_
ern half of the country with a mile-
high cloud of dust.
Farrell announced that the cain-
paign for signers of wheat production
control contracts would be extended
from May 10 until May 16 to give
farmers in the drought area an op-
portunity to sign.
Under such contracts farmers will
receive benefit payments of 28 cents
per bushel on the amount of their
voluntary reduction, which sum may
be increased if processing taxes are
raised at the beginning of the coming
ma rketing year on .Jidly 1.

At a special Mother's Day service
at 10:45 a.m. today at the First Meth-
odist Episcopal Church, the Rev.
Frederick B. Fisher will speak on
"Motherhood Plus."
The background of his message will
be a study of the life and work of
Harriet Beecher Stowe, whose duties
as wife and mother of a large family
did not prevent her from making a
contribution to literature that stirred
the public conscience and helped mold
public opinion.
Attendance at Mother's Day serv-
ices of the local churches will be in-
cluded in the programs of many so-
rorities and fraternities, where the
mothers of members are being elr-'
At 9 p.m. there will be a sympo-

High-grade trouble-shooters at the
Michigan League have often solved
strange problems, such as that of the
visiting prima donna who wanted a
seven-passenger limousine to ride
from the League to Hill Auditorium,
or that of the newlyweds who wanted
to make a secret get-away after a
wedding luncheon, but yesterday af-
ternoon they were nonplussed.
It was just at the rush hour, with
the crowds for the May Festival and
Spring Homecoming filling the lob-
bies. Into the League stalked a lady,
holding in her hands a poor little
brown squirrel, which she deposited
gently on the counter. "It's broken a
leg, or something," she pointed out.
"What can you do for it?"
The League was stumped. No doc-
tor, no medical student, not even a
zoologist in sight, and the League's
first aid kit didn't run to squirrel-
splints: Finally after considerable
brain racking it was suggested that
the squirrel be taken to a veterinar-
The lady with the squirrel tried to
get a friend's car to make the trip,
but with no ambulance forthcoming,
she left on foot, with the squirrel
cuddled in her arms. The League's
trouble-shooters sighed with relief,
but they had lost that feeling of in-

Rivals End Season
With 2 Wins Each
Wolverines Are Virtually
Eliminated From Big 10
Title Race By Defeat
Ohio State's baseball team, held to
one hit by "Whitey" Wistert in Fri-
day's game, descended on Pitcher Art
Patchin for 13 safeties to bat out an
easy 7-to-4 victory over Michigan in
yesterday's battle at Ferry Field.
The series ended the baseball riv-
alry of the two schools for the year,
with each winning two and losing two.
Yesterday's defeat, the third of the
season, virtually eliminated Mich-
igan from the Big Ten title race, al-
though they have a mathematical
chance if the league-leading Illinois
and Indiana teams are upset,
Though Patchin struck out seven
batters, he walked two and hit two
with pitched balls, allowing the Buck-
eyes to get to him for three runs in
both the fifth and seventh innings.
Michigan Leads
Going into the fifth inning Mich-
igan led, 3 to 1. Williams opened the
Ohio half with a walk and went to sec-
ond when Prosenjak was hit by Pat-
chin. Lewis flied out to Wistert, then
Clowson, who ruined Wistert's no-hit,
no-run game on Friday, singled into
center field, scoring Williams. Both
runners advanced on the throw-in.
McAfee singled to right, Prosenjak
and Clowson scoring. Vidis hit into a
double play, Petoskey to Paulson to
Wistert, to end the inning.
Held scoreless in the sixth, the
Buckeyes proceeped to put the game
on ice with threq runs in the sev-
enth, the same --n supplying
i the fireworks
Prosenjak hit a sharp grounder
through the box for a single and
went to second on Lewis' sacrifice
bunt. Clowson hit to Oliver who threw
him out while holdin Prosenjak onI
second. McAfee then singled to left,1
Prosenjak scoring. McAfee took sec-
ond on the throw to the plate and
went to third when Chapman's throw
to second was high.
Vidis Hits Triple
Vidis tripled intoe deep center field1
to score McAfee and came home him-
self on Moser's single over second
base. Moser was thrown out while
trying to steal second.
Michigan got two runs in the sec-
ond inning when Patchin hit the ball
into the right field tennis courts for
three bases with Wistert and Chap-
man aboard. Wistert had singled and,
Chapman had been given a walk.
In the fourth inning Regeczi, con-
siderably aroused over Umpire Slav-
in's decision robbing him of a home
run in the second, parked another
ball between center and left field for
three bases and came home on Rat-
terman's long fly to left
Two Buildings
Demolished In
Downtown Fire
Two stores were ravaged ealy yes-
terday morning byravsensational fire
which threatened the downtown dis-
trict and caused damage estimated at
$50,000 before it was extinguished by
a double shift of firemen.
The Stofflet News Co. store, 208
South Fourth Ave., and the Ernst
Bros. Electric Shop adjoining, were
completely destroyed, and smoke and
water damaged the Montgomery,
Ward and Co., and the Pilbeam and
Marz stores.
The blaze was discovered at 7 a.m.
by Patrolman Caspar Michelson, who
turned in the alarm.

Three children, who had been left
in the apartment above the store
by their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Caleb
Baker, earlier in the morning, were
rescued by firemen. Charles, 7 years
old, the youngest of the three, stead-
fastly refused to be carried out of the
flames until firemen also rescued his
dog, Skippy.
Fire Chief Charles J. Andrews an-
nounced that the cause of the fire was
not known, but that it originated in

City Plea Answered
As Rutihven Bushes
Yield Lost Fountain
In the bushes surrounding Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven's home,
was discovered early yesterday the
city's lost drinking fountain that was
reported stolen in Friday's Daily.,
In response to the city's plaintive
appeal that, if the fountain were re-
turned the water could be turned on,
some repentent thief or jokester
draped the drinking stand in white
tissue paper, tied it with a dainty
blue ribbon, and placed it, together
with a note written on the cover of a
blue book, by the front door of Mich-
igan's presidential residence.
The note read:
"urrai for the liquor which took
it away;
To hell with the cops who knew
lhow to obey;
But here's to The Daily, t;hat
chamnpioned its cause,
Till back this here fountain is
brought now to stay."
The note was followed by a cari-
cature of a man quaffing beer, la-
belled "Ruthven," and is signed by a
"J," followed by a stein of beer, pre-
sumably the renowned "J. Beersley"
of Union Opera fame.
Stock (Control
Bill Approved
By Senate Vote
Differences In Congress
Will Be Considered By
Amendment Consul
WASHINGTON, May 12.-( P)-
The Stock Exchange Control Bill,
placing virtually every phase of the
securities business in the grip of
governmental regulation, was ap-
proved 62 to 13 today by the Senate.
Attached were amendments adopt-
ed in response to the contention of
organized business that the Securi-
ties Act of 1933 was strangling re-
covery by preventing a free flow of
capital into the lagging heavy indus-
These proposals, offered with Ad-
ministration approval by Senio
Duncan U. Fletcher, Florida Demo-
crat, chairman of the Senate Bank-
ing Committee, would place extensive
limitations on the liabilities which
the original act provided for the is-
sues and underwriters of faulty se-
The bill now goes to conference
for the settlement of several out-
standing differences between the Sen-
ate and House bills, including the
amendments to the Securities Law,
no reference to which was contained
in the House measure.
Debate on these changes brought
a plea from conservative Republi-
cans, led by Senator Frederic C. Wal-
cott, of Connecticut; Hamilton F.
Kean, of New Jersey, and Daniel O.
Hastings, of Delaware, that while the
proposals were in the right direction
they did not sufficiently liberalize the
present law.
Kean offered the British Compa-
nies Act, intact, as a substitute for
the Fletcher amendments, but his
proposition was rejected without. a
record vote. Walcott proposed to
substitute a long series of amend-
ments written by the'Durable Goods
Industries Committee, and this move
was defeated 46 to 30.
Season tickets for the Dramatic
Season, which opens tomorrow, are
still available at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn box office.
Seats for the entire series of six

plays are priced starting from $3.
InMatinee performances for the open-
ing offering, "The Brontes," will be
presented at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday,
Friday, and Saturday.

A picture of the United States of
the future was drawn by Mr. Brucker,
who stated that the country is so full
of "Dillingers" that they will eventu-
ally gain the complete upper hand
unless they are downed at once.
Education under the present sys-
tem is not all that it might be, ac-
cording to Mr. Brucker, for the ma-
jority of graduates know a little bit
about everything instead of knowing
a great deal about one thing. He ad-
vocated specialization as the present
need to take care of this evil.
The three main points which Mr.
Brucker pointed out as being desired
in young men today are specializa-
tion, vitality, and accuracy.
Urges Partnership
President Ruthven directed his talk
around the subject of a partnership
between parents, educational insti-
tutions, and the students themselves.
He called this the way in which best
results can be obtained with respect

Bori Laoves University Towns,
Finds Ann Arbor 'So Charming'

Growth Of University Council
Traced From Early Beginning

She thinks Ann Arbor is "so charm-
ing," this great operatic star who has
been described as "Lucrezia Bori, the
magnificent." Possessor of a gor-
geous voice, a brilliant personality,
and an essential humanness that dis-
tinguishes her from so many celebri-
ties Madame Bori, who made her
debut 26 years ago, is greater today
than she ever was.
She discussed college towns during
the interview she granted beforet her
May Festival concert Friday, explain-
ing that she "so enjoyed a place where
there were so many young people. I
like to stroll around a university
town and watch everybody and a
place like this has a charm all its

part opposite Caruso in 1912 at the
Metropolitan was but a short step.
The star, whose vivid black hair.
and eyes bespeak her nationality,
came to Ann Arbor from St. Louis
where she sang in concerts, and goes
to Detroit, where she will sing the
leading role in the Detroit Civic pro-
duction of "Manon Lescaut," one of
her most famous roles, a role which
she does, so critics say, better than
any other singer.
Madame Bori is, at first sight, a
very beautiful, very colorful, very so-
phisticated, and gracious singer. But
soon one learns that underneath this
calm, beautiful exterior, is a very ca-
pable business woman, a torrent of

The newly-created Faculty Coun-
cil at Harvard has had its counterpart
here at Michigan in the University
Council for three years, it was said
yesterday at the University adminis-
trative offices.
The faculty of the University al-
ways held regular meetings, even
when Michigan was nothing but a
small literary college. As the college
grew, and the faculty was enlarged,
these meetings became more popu-
Eventually there was formed a Uni-
versity Senate, a body composed of

'Council, was formed. This was com-
posed of one or two elected members
from each faculty, elected by the var-
ious faculties, depending upon the
size of the faculties they were rep-
This body met once a month and
became a sort of executive commit-
tee of the Senate, with limited pow-
ers. It did the routine work of the
Senate, such as control over athletics,
arrangements for conferring honor-
ary degrees, control of fraternities,
and similar functions. The body ex-
isted until 1931 when the University
Council was organized.

Irving F. Levitt, '36, was appointed
student manager of Hillel Foundation
and of all Jewish activities by Rabbi
Bernard Heller last night at a par-
ents' banquet sponsored by Kappa
Nu at the League. Rabbi Heller stated
that this position was abolished last
year but the need for its re-estab-
lishment was deemed advisable for
next year.
The student managership, he said,
had complete control of the Hillel
Foundation and all officers of that
organization are directly responsible
to him. He was confident that this
arrangement will be a distinct im-
provement over last year's system,
Levitt was a member of the fresh-
man swimming squad, a freshman
reporter on The Daily, and was on

mittee. He is now a Union commit-
