Federal Laws
On Kidnaping
Are Enacted
WASHINGTON, May 18. -(0) -
A group of bills requested by the De-
partment of Justice to aid the Fed-
eral government in combatting crime
became law today as President Roose-

velt affixed his signature.
The measures, passage of which
were hastened by the activities of
John Dillinger, provide Federal pen-
alties for offenses which heretofore
have been curbed only by state law.
One bill provides that if a kidnaped
person is kept seven days it automa-
tically became a Federal crime
through a presumption that he was
taken across a state line.
Other measures would classify as
Federal crimes the participation of
Federal officials or employees in
prison breaks, sending extortion mes-
sages in interstate commerce, flee-
ing across state lines to avoid prose-
cution or giving testimony in felony
cases, fraud or robbery of National
banks, assaulting or murdering a Fed-
eral officer or employee in line of
duty, and interstate transportation
of stolen securities.
"There will be no relenting," said
the President in signing the legis-

Union Life Members'
Re ftnts Now Available
Life members of the Union may
collect their tuition refunds at the
side desk in the lobby of the Union
from 1:30 to 5 p.m. today and
(from 3 to 5 p.m. every day next.
week, according to a statement is-
sued yesterday by Paul A. Leiday,
financial secretary of the Unian.
It was also announced that sen-
iors would be able to obtain their
life membership buttons and cards
at the same time.
This is the last refund that will
be made inasmuch as the Union
now receives no appropriation from
the tuition and incidental fees paid
by male students.
Weber, Steeb
Is Picketed By
Union Strikers
Employes Of Meat Market
Protest Against Alleged
NRA Code Violations
Labor troubles cropped up in Ann
Arbor yesterday when the employees
of the Weber and Steeb Meat Market,
206 S. Ashley street, went on strike.
The market was picketed by members
of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters and
Butcher Workers of America, local
number 636, in protest against al-
leged violation of NRA code obliga-
Harry A. Reifin, secretary of the
Ann Arbor Trades and Labor Coun-
cil, which is sponsoring the strike,
charged that the Weber and Steeb
firm had first forced its employes to
work longer than the hours pre-
scribed in the code, while paying
minimum code wages. Now, Reifin
continued, though the hours have
been reduced,, wages have been
slashed to a level that the union con-
siders intolerable.
Over two months ago, Reifin said,
Frank Livernois, manager of the meat
market, was made chairman of a
commission of merchants whose pur-
pose was to co-operate with workers
in fixing a satisfactory wage scale for
the meat business. Since that time,
he stated, the commission's policy has
been one of stalli'g.
Reifin declared thaf employes of
several other meat markets would
also go on strike soon, unless union
demands for a minimum wage of. $25
are met. At present, wages are as
low as $14.50, he added.
Mr. Livernois declined to discuss
the situation last night, but said he
would issue a statement today.

Ward Stars
As Trackmen
Enter Finals
Wolverines Qualify Eight
In Preliminaries of Big
Ten Track Meet
Illinois I.eads With
Sixteen Qualifiers
Hornhostel Breaks Record
In Half Mile As Indiana
Ties Michigan
Ill., May 18. - (')- Willis Ward led
Michigan's qualifiers in the Big Ten
track meet today by placing in the
three events in which he entered. De-
spite his leg injury, Ward registered
the best qualifying times in the pre-
liminaries of the 100-yard dash, with
10 second flat, in the 120-yard high
hurdles with 15.1, and led the broad
Ijumpers with a leap of 23 feet, 2%
inches. Ward is also favored to win
the high jump today.
Michigan's other qualifiers for the
final heats tomorrow, were Tom El-
lerby in the 440, with a best time of
:49.8, Bob Lamb in the 100-yard dash,
Harvey Smith in the 880-yard run,
and William Etchells in the discus.
Illinois Is Outstanding
Illinois, a dark horse, galloped into
the contention for the Western Con-
ference outdoor track and field cham-
pionship today, but the real gallop-
ing was done by Charles Hornbostel,'
Indiana University's brilliant middle-]
distance star.7
The tall bespectacled Hoosier, ig-
noring the rest of the field in his
heat in the half-mile run, swept to aj
new Big Ten record of one minute,
52.9 seconds. The performance
brushed away the old mark of onej
minute, 53.2 seconds established by
'Don Scott of the Mississippi Aggies in!
1916, one of the two records held by
non-Conference stars. He took com-
mand at the start and eteadily- in-
creased his margin until he finished
with a margin of 40 yards over Charles
Smith of Ohio State.
Illinois, not expected to figure as
a championship threat, uncorkedt
power in the dashes and the shotputt
to lead the qualifying for tomorrow'st
finals with 16 places.
Hudson Helimich, best of the Illini
sprinters last year but suffering an
injury most of this season, was backt
in form and qualified in the 100-1
and 220-yard dashes, along with his
teammates, Hunter Russell and Verne,
Eckert. Dave Cook and A. C. (Chinn)
Kamm, were 1-2 in the trials for the
Indiana Threatens
The Indiana dual of Hornbostel and
Ivan Fuqua also did as expected.
Hornbostel will compete in the half
mile tomorrow along with the mile
and possibly the two mile. Fuqua qual-
ified in the 220-yard dash and quarter
mile in which he is the defending
champion, and did it so easily he
looked like a certain repeater.
Indiana and Michigan ran second
to Illinois in qualifying, each ac-
counting for eight places. Wisconsin
surprised by coming up with seven,
and Purdue, Ohio State, and North-
westedn and Iowa had five each. Min-
nesota gained four places and Chi-
cago had three. .

To South America
WASHINGTON, May 18.-- (A) -
The Administration today asked Con-
gress to declare an embargo on arms
shipments to Bolivia and Paraguay.
A resolution to that effect was sent
to the Capitol by the State Depart-
ment for introduction in both

branches of Congress.
Earlier in the day President Roose-
velt asked the Senate to ratify the
Geneva Arms and Ammunition con-
vention in a move to obtain control
of the traffic in munitions. It was
promptly reported to the Senate andt

The Administration apparently be-1
lieved that it required specific au-
thority by Congress to deal with the
Bolivian-Paraguayan situation.-
In his message regarding the Gen-
eva convention, President Roosevelt
called for action to end the "mad race
in armament which, if permitted toi
continue, may well result in war." He1
suggested that the reassembling world
disarmament parley might go further
toward accomplishing the task of in-7
ternational "supervision and control
of the traffic in arms."
"The ratification of that conven-
tion by this government, which has
been too long delayed," he said,

Dillinger Aides
Suspected In
Bank Robbery
Doubt Whether 'Bad Man'
Himself Participated In
Dari g Hold-Up
FLINT, May 18.-(1P)-A scar-
faced machine gunner led a raid on
a branch bank here today and, al-
though it was doubtful if the nation's
number one "bad man" himself was
a participant, police suspected that
John Dillinger's gang had replen-
ished its war chest with $30,000
It was a typical Dillinger foray,
carefully timed to follow the delivery
of $100,000 by armored cars from the
home office of the Citizens Commer-
cial and Savings Bank, but a multi-'
plicity of identifications cast increas-
ing doubt upon the actual presence
of the notorious fugitive.
Kirk Rowland, a customer, first
declared that it was Dillinger, scar
and all, who prodded him with a ma-
chine gun and threatened to "blow
your brains out" at the first overt act.
By nightfall, however, four other
members of the robber gang had been
identified by various witnesses from
photographs, as the elusive desper-
The only member-not so identified
was a woman who sat in an auto-
mobiletwith a machine gun in her lap
while the robbery was in progress.
The robbers waited outside the
Glenwood Ave. branch bank until an
armored car had been driven away,
after the delivery of $100,000 in cur-
rency. A man with a sawed-off shot-
gun and a woman sat in one car. Four
men waited in another car.
Then three of the men entered the
bank. The machine gunner, noticing
a pistol in Rowland's pocket, forced
him to lie on the floor and kept one
foot on him while he kept five other
patrons and four employes covered
with his weapons.

Acting Is Not Enough, Rollo
Peters Wants To Be A Director

Board Members Announce By
MichiganCo-Operative House

Eventually, if he has his way about
it, the American stage's leading ro-
mantic actor is going to be much more
than just an actor. He is going to be
a director, and will probably do a bit
of set designing on the side during
spare moments - of which every good
director possesses at least two each
Rollo Peters, one of the stars of
Robert Henderson's current season at
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, is the
actor, and he has quite a formidable
list of experiences to his credit which
should well qualify him for his future
position in the world of drama.
He likes acting all right --hasn't a
thing against it despite the fact that
some of this country's theatres con-
structed during the gay nineties do
need a bit of replastering right now
- but he insists that the stage is al-
ways in need of good directors.
"My favorite director," he says, "is
Richard Bolesavsky. and his exneri-

turned in on "The Taming of the
Shrew,' and he has since been receiv-
ing important recognition from the
men wh9 direct destinies in Holly-
The director, it seems, was com-
mandeered by the movies some time
before'they decided to use his talents
so constructively as was eventually
done in the screen productions of
"Rasputin" and "Men In White." And
now, according to his admirer, Bole-
savsky has been selected to direct
Greta Garbo's next picture.
"That's another peculiar thing
about the stage-movie relationship,"
Peters claims. "A successful writer,
director, or actor is recruited from
the stage for movie work and even-
tually does make as important a suc-
cess in the screen world as on the plat-
form. But, despite all this, most of
them return to the stage after a
time, which is quite fortunate, I be-
lieve, for drama as a whole."
potn, ,, n1 ort. M,. Don-ci-n A A

With the announcement yesterday
of the Board of Managers for the
coming school year, the Michigan Co-
Operative Boarding House proceeded
to formulate plans for the future
management of the enterprise.
George J. Varga, '37, Trenton, N. J.,
is the newly elected treasurer. Varga
is already a certified accountant. He
will be assisted in the management
of the Co-operative by Robert J. Ham-
man, '36BAd., Rochester, N.Y., who is
the purchasing agent for next year,
and Edward A. Stone, '36, Detroit,
who will take the position of person-
nel manager.
They will be assisted by a board
composed of H. M. King, '37A, Fred-
erick Kelly, '37M, Ralph Neafus, '36
F&C, Arthur Bernhart, Grad., Morton
Adinoff, '35, and William Fevel, '35Ed.
Nearing Normal Level
Although they operated during the
first semester this vear with neither

in the spring of 1933, but that they
recovered sufficiently to pay for all
their equipment. Consequently this
problem no longer faces them.
Economies instituted in the past
three weeks have resulted in decided
savings without a drop in services
offered to the members, Manley said.
The University is at present having
the books of the organization audited
by William T. Crandell of the eco-
nomics department. It is felt that a
clear pictu e of the finances will help
to bring aout more efficient opera-
Overhead Costs Large
Manley pointed out that over half
of the money paid in by each mem-
ber is used to defray overhead ex-
penses, while a smaller amount is used
to pay the actual cost of food. It is
hoped that next year, when the direc-
tors have had more experience in run-
ning the Co-onperative the costs on
