Plan Is Advanced To Meet
Charges That Sponsors
Lack Responsibility
A proposal to place all responsibil-
ity for the lecture by John Strachey,
British communist, on the shoulders
of a newly-created committee of local
citizens, faculty members, and stu-
dents will be placed before Univer-
sity authorities today, it was an-
nounced early this morning by the
Strachey Lecture Committee.
. The members of the projected com-
mittee are: Prof. Robert C. Angell
of the sociology department, Prof.
Louis C.,Karpinski of the mathemat-
ics department, Prof. John L. Brumm
of the journalism department, Prof.
John F. Shpard of the psychology
department, Neal Staebler, part own-
er of the Staebler Oil Company, the
Rev. Harold P. Marley of the Unitar-
ian Church, William L. Fisch, '37,
Cyril F. Hetsko, '36L, and Samuel
Magdoff, '37A
Plan Given As Answer
The plan, according to the Strachey
committee, was arranged in answer
to the University's decision stating
that "the committee (on lecture pol-
icy) is not convinced of the responsi-
bility of this organization to sponsor
public lectures in University buildings
and therefore refuses to approve its
The Strachey committee stated that
the proposal would be left up to the
University until 4 p.m. Monday, at
which time the new committee would
be dissolved and the present arrange-
ment would again go into effect.
Suppression of free speech was laid
squarely at the door of the University
last night at a meeting called in pro-
test against the refusal of the Com-
mittee on Lecture Policy to grant the
National Student League the use of
Hill Auditorium March 14 for a speech
by Strachey.
Many Attend Meeting
The meeting, held in the Union, was
attended by almost 150 persons and
unanimously passed a resolution de-
clariog "that this assembly go on
record as opposed to such a denial of
free expression and demand that the
lecture be petmitted to continue as
A prepared statement by Professor
Karpinski and a talk by the Rev.
Marley both asserted that the real
issue in the Strachey affair was the
right of free speech.
Professor Karpinski's statement
read, in part, "I regret that I disagree
with many members of the Committee
on Lecture Policy. But in this dis-
agreement I know that I am supported
by a large group of my colleagues who
feel that free speech is involved.
"It is known that there are certain
newspapers which wish to establish
communistic ideas as being common
to most professors . . . . However, I
repeat that many faculty members
interested in free speech are voicing
their objections simply and solely to
conserve the best interests of this
great American university - the in-
terest of free speech."
Marley Gives Statement
The Rev. Marley asserted that "if
the University wants to get its ap-
propriation from Lansing, and if it
wants to keep order on the campus,
it will not attempt to shut off the
freedom of speech and stop progress
and it will allow Strachey to speak in
Hill Auditorium as announced."
The Rev. Marley suggested that the

National Student League turn over all
responsibility for the Strachey lec-
ture, except for financial losses, to the
Universityj authorities and ask that
they sponsor the speech.
President Alexander G. Ruthven,
who returned to Ann Arbor yester-
day, was represented as corroborating
the lecture committee's position by
two members of an "independent"
group of law students who inter-!
viewed him yesterday.

Chicago Man
Arrested F o r
Boy's Murder
Tisto, Uncle Of Richard
Streicher, Jr., Grilled;
IHunt For Killer Goes On
A man named Tisto, an uncle of the
murdered Richard Streicher, Jr., was
arrested late last night in Chicago for
the slaying of the seven-year-old
Ypsilanti schoolboy, sheriffs said, and
bulletins reported that he made con-
flicting statements under cross-exam-
The man's surname was given last
night by police as Tisto, although his
first name was not known here. Ac-
cording to latest reports received from
Chicago by Washtenaw County sher-
iffs, authorities in that city believe
he is implicated in the fierrlish
crime. Tisto is the brother-in-law of
Mrs. Richard Streicher, mother of
the murdered boy.'
While the extensive hunt for the
killer was being made in several
states, Dr. Herbert W. Emerson of the
Medical School bacteriology depart-
ment was analyzing bloodstains on
cornstalks found in a deserted house
on the outskirts of Ypsilanti. These
were discovered by a citizen who re-
ported bloodstains on the snow out-
side the house. Inside the barren
structure were found the bloody corn-
stalks and a necktie with a Fort
Wayne, Ind., label on it. The necktie
was torn in two.
Analysis Incomplete
Leading from the road to the side
house were automobile tracks. In the
basement were discovered impressions
in the sand floor which sheriffs said
might have been made by a bundle or
a body.
Dr. Emerson told The Daily late
last night that his analysis of the
stains on the cornstalks was not yet
completed, but he expects to have
them ready for the police today
or Monday. He refused to disclose
whether any progress had yet been
made or not.
Dr. Stacy C. Howard, of St. Joseph's
Hospital here, completed his autopsy
of the body yesterday and stated his
opinion that the killer was sex degen-
erate. He refused to give the reason
for his belief. He insisted that the
slayer must have been a powerful man
in order to have inflicted the deep
wounds. The autopsy disclosed the boy
had been stabbed 14 times. The in-

cisions in the heart probably caused'
death, Dr. Howard said, although he
stated that the two wounds in the
neck and scalp were deep.
The body, which was found Friday
afternoon lying on an embankment
near the bridge which crosses the Hu-
ron River, was frozen stiff. It must
have been there since Thursday, the
doctor believes.

New World's Record Set
By Owens In 60-Yard
Dash; Stoller Second
I HOUSE, CHICAGO, March 9.- (Spe-
cial) - Michigan's track team suc-
cessfully defended its Big Ten cham-
pionship here tonight, setting a new
all-time scoring mark of 491/2 points
in a meet which was marked by a
complete upset of form and its coun-
ter-balance by the unexpected show-
ing of Michigan's supporting cast.
Ohio State was second with 221/2
points and Wisconsin third with 18/2.
The meet saw one Conference and
world's record broken, in the 60-yard
dash, when Jesse Owens, Ohio State's
"Ebony Antelope" bested Sam Stoller,
the Michigan sophomore, to the tape
in 6.1 seconds to dethrone the de-
fending champion, Willis Ward of
Michigan, who finished third.
Ward Off Form
Ward, Michigan's one-man track
star, failed to come up to the form
which he showed a week ago in the
dual meet with Ohio State, and gave
up his three crowns, in the dash, the
high hurdles, and the high jump,
which he did not enter.
Although Ward failed to show his
best form, the showing of the Mich-
igan sophomores more than redeemed
him, as Stoller pushed Owens to the
new dash record, Bob Osgood ran
ahead of the field in the high hurdles,
Clayton Brelsford took the mile, How-
ard Davidson a second in the half
mile, and the mile relay team won,
while Konrad Moisio was living up to
his reputation as a "money jumper"
to take the high jump at 6 feet, 2
Team Shows Balance
The four Wolverine firsts were only
a part of the score, however, as the
superbly balanced team scored in
every event but the shot, in which
there were no entries, taking at least
3%/ points in every other event except
the 440 in which Stan Birleson, fa-
vored to win, was caught in a box on
the first turn and ran fifth.
The big sophomore star came back,
however, in the relay to run from the
anchor post in 49.8 seconds, behind
another superb lap by Bob Osgood,
after a poor exchange between Fred
Stiles and Howard Aikens had lost a
lead of 20 yards.
Harvey Smith, the Wolverine cap-
tain, showed the effects of a week of
illness as he ran behind Brelsford in
the mile and took a fifth in the half-
mile. Paul Gorman ran fourth to
bring in unexpected points.
