WASHINGTON, May 24. - (W)
The Blue Eagle emerged with
strengthened wings today from a
courtroom clash with an agent of the
Ford Motor Co.
Justice Daniel W. O'Donoghue of
the District of Columbia Supreme
Court held Ford was thwarting the
Recovery Act and that the govern-
ment did not have to buy his prod-
"It would seem unreasonable that
the President should be compelled to
contract with any company, no matter
how wealthy or powerful, if that com-
pany is thwarting the recovery act
and defying the government to en-
force it," the court. declared.
"It is not reasonable that the gov-
ernment should be required to deal
with any company blocking this great
act of national recovery."
Justice O'Donoghue refused the ap-
plication of the Northwest Motor Co.
of Chevy Chase, Md., for an injunc-
tion to prevent the Interior and Agri-
culture departments from rejecting its
bids on approximately 1,000 Ford
trucks and automobiles.

To Consider
Council Fate
New Members Will Either
Abolish Body Or Make
Constitution Changes
B rsley In Favor
Of Reorganization
Plan To Make Complete
Revision Of Membership
To Be Proposed
The new members of the Under-
graduate Council, who will hold their
first meeting with the present council
at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to decide the
fate of the council, will be faced with
two alternatives, according to Gilbert
E. Bursley, retiring president.
The new council members, who have
succeeded to positions either through
election or appointment to the head
position of a major campus organiza-
tion, will either vote the body out of
existence or will devise several con-
stitutional amendments to increase
the function and strengthen the per-
sonnel of the organization, he de-
Merits Reorganization
Bursley said that there has been
sufficient campus interest in the fu-
ture of the council to warrant such
a reorganization, but explained that
the new council, aided by the advice
and explanations of the retiring mem-
bers, would be left to act as it saw
"As a matter of fact," he declared,
"the council has accomplished prac-
tically everything it has undertaken
this year. The trouble lies in the fact
that it has too little to do, and to
try to create things to do causes
A proposed plan which the council
will consider is a complete reorganiza-
tion of its membership, wiping out
some of the old positions and replac-
ing them with the presidents or heads
of active campus organizations suc'
as the Glee Club, the band, and the
cheerleading staff, and perhaps in-
cluding a student member of the
board in control of athletics.
Would Give More Support
In this way, Bursley explained, the
council will be utilized in promoting
and supporting such activities as these
organizations are concerned with. A
plan would be devised by which other
campus groups, which believed they
were of general campus importance to
deserve it, could apply for represen-
tation in the council.
The positions which now automa-
tically mean membership on the
council are as follows: presidents of
Michigamua, Druids, Vulcans, Sphinx,
Triangles, Tau Beta Pi, Engineering
Council, Interfraternity Council, Pan-
Hellenic, the League, the Union, Mor-
tarboard, Wyvern, and Senior So-
ciety; past presidents of Wyvern, Tri-
angles and Sphinx; and the managing
editor of The Daily.
Students holding these positions are
urged to attend the meeting on Tues-
Lens Casting
Described In
Talk By Petrie
"The Casting of the 84-inch Lens

for the University of Michigan" was
the subject of an informal talk given
by Dr. Roy Petrie of the astronomy
department at the graduate lunch-
eon held yesterday in the League.
As a background, the necessity for
accuracy in applying the principle
that the volume of a solid changes
with its temperature was stressed.
New pyrex used in preference to com-
mon glass has aided this and has'
eliminated 40 per cent of the diffi-
After two previous castings of the
lens for Michigan had failed, the
third casting of the disc took place,
April 2. As he was a spectator at this
scene, Dr. Petrie described the events
quite vividly. After melting the pyrex
in huge furnaces heated by flames
of natural gas 20 feet long, the glass
was scooped out in a .ladle and cast
into a kind of bee-hive arrangement
which could be heated.
It took 23 of these pourings to
complete the disc. The glass was at
a temperature lower than the melting
point; then the temperature was in-

'G.O.P. Delays
Depositor Aid
By Filibuster
Three-Hour Debate Blocks
Effort To Hasten Passing
Of Insurance Bill
House I Session
Unt l Bill Passes
Necessary Investigation Of
Banks Must Be Finished
By July_1 At Latest
WASHINGTON, May 24. -(P) -
A Republican filibuster against an-
other measure held the House in a
prolonged session today in an effort
to hasten passage of the Deposit In-
surance Bill.
The Republicans succeeded in forc-
ing the House to spend more than
three hours considering the bill to
make a National Park out of part of
the Florida Everglades.
Leaders had set aside the Deposit
Insurance Bill for that, expecting the
debate to be short, but their wishes
were thwarted by organized and solid
Republican opposition.
House to Stay in Session
Speaker Henry T. Rainey and Rep-
resentative Joseph W. Byrns, of Ten-
nessee, the Democratic floor leader
then announced the House would be
kept in session until it passed the De-
posit Insurance Bill which postpones
from July 1, 1934 until July 1, 1935,
the permanent and broader deposit
insurance features.
In asking the House to agree to ex-
tend present temporary deposit in-
surance, raising it to cover up to $5,000
instead of $2,500, Chairm'an Henry .
Steagall, Alabama Democrat, of the
Banking Committee, said:
"Insurance of bank deposits is a
reality, but much still remains to be
done to make the insurance as com-
plete as was intended when the Bank-
ing Act of 1933 was passed."
July 1 Is Deadline
He said it ould be a physical im-
possibility to ° mClete neeessary ii-
vestigation of banks by the July 1,
1934, deadline. Consequently, he re-
ported, those which have not been
examined then would be forced to
operate without any deposit insurance.
"While this work of preparation
for the more complete protection of
depositors is under way," he said,
"there is every reason to believe that
the present feeling of confidence in
the banking structure of the Country
will not only remain but will improve
as the work of rehabilitation, inau-
gurated with the passage of the Bank-
ing Act of 1933, is carried out to com-
plete fruition."

Navy Surgeons Attempt To
Save Life Of Famous
Sea Adventurer '
LOS ANGELES, May 24. - (F)-
Naval surgeons who made a 1,000-
mile emergency flight to aid William
Albert Robinson, stricken sea adven-
turer, waited today in lonely Tagus
cove in the Galapagos islands for the
arrival of the United States destroyer,
After examining Robinson as soon

as they arrived alongside his small
ketch, Svaat, late Wednesday, Lieu-
tenant Commander Rollo W. Hutchin-
son and Lieutenant Oscar D. Yar-
brough expressed the opinion the ad-
venturer's appendix had broken,
spreading peritonitis.
In wireless messages relayed here,
they said they considered an imme-
diate operation inadvisable and would
wait the arrival of the Hale, which left
the Canal Zone about the same time
their two naval seaplanes took off for
the islands.
The surgeons planned to put the
adventurer aboard the war craft and
speed him back to Balboa, operating
en route if necessary. The Hale ex-
pected to reach Tagus cove today.
Since wireless messages first carried
medical advice from Los Angeles to
Robinson's bride, the former Florence
Crane, Chicago heiress, the fishing
trawler Santa Cruz has been standing
by the tiny honeymoon boat supplying
ice packs to the adventurer.

}By Intercollegiate Press)
ITHACA, N. Y., May 24.- Cornell
University is represented in the
Roosevelt administration by some
professors who have been setting the
financial world on its ear.
But to Dr. Livingston Farrand,
president of Cornell University, the
present trend in economics is just
about as bewildering as it is to you
and me. At least he says it is.
"Why, I am just as bewildered
about it all as the average house-
holder," he told newspaper men last
week. "I try to follow the trend of
events closely, but the picture changes
so rapidly that I find myself baffled.-
I have to sit down and try to think it
all out."
One thing surprises the Cornell
president - that there is no more vio-
lence in the country.
"I believe this is due to the great
intelligence of the American peo-.
ple," he said. "Before they will at-
tempt to riot or tear things up they
will do a great deal of calm consid-
"One of the surprising things about
the current depression is that the at-
tendance at colleges and universities
has not diminished as would be ex-
pected. Parents and students, are
making great sacrifices to keep their
children and themselves in school."
Dr. Farrand believes the typical
American college student is becominE
a bit more politically-minded and is
studying current affairs with much
more interest.

TOLEDO, May 24.--(A)- Three
persons fell under a volley of National
Guard rifle fire tonight in a resump-
tion of savage rioting near the plant
of the Electric Auto-Lite Co. here.
A shower of bricks and the gather-
ing of a mob of 2,000 heralded the re-
newal of the offensive in the strike-
torn sector tonight after a brief truce
earlier in the night.
The truce followed the action of
the National Guard in opening fire
on the mob this afternoon, killing
two and wounding others.
Truce Shortlived
But the truce did not last long. At
7:20 p.m. a man struck at a Guard
officer. The officer knocked the man
into the gutter. The crowd surged
forward and the soldier drew his pis-
tol. Thei stones and bricks began
to fly again.
It was estimated that 2,000 per-
ions congregated at the Champlain
and Elm Street intersection where
this occurred.

dies, including "Good News," and
"Follow Thru."
