Say Revolt
Is Crushed
In Greecel

Government Announces
Complete Victories In
Macedonia And Thrace
Claims Cruiser Is
Flying White Flag
Unconfirmed Report Says
Venizelos Will Proclaim
Crete Separate State
ATHENS, March 11-(A')- The in-
surrection is definitely crushed in
Macedonia and Thrace and Gen.
George Kondylis, leader of the gov-
ernment forces, is returning to
Athens, the government officially an-
nounced tonight.
The rebels, on the eleventh day of
the revolt, have been blasted from
their pr' cipal strongholds in Seres,
Drana, Eavalla and Demirhissar,
Kotini, and Dede Heach, the an-
nouncement added.
It also was officially announced the
cruiser Hele is in government hands,
and, flying a white flag, is near the
harbor of Kavalla.
It was indicated, although not con-
firmed, that former Premier Eleu-
therios Venizelos, leader of the re-
bellion in Crete, has accepted the
defeat of his Macedonian and Thrace
followers and will proclaim Crete a
separate state.
More Reports Received
There were even reports here that
the retreating rebels had strewn flow-
ers in the path of the advancing vic-
torious government troops. The of-
ficial government casualty list in the
"grand push" was given as two dead
and four wounded on the govern-
Premier Payayoti Tsaldaris, indi-
cating the rapid 'disintegration of
rebel defenses in embattled Mace-
donia, issued a statement that as soon
as the rebel evacuation of Drama
was confirmed, the Macedonian re-
bellion would be over, adding that the
authority of the lawful government
would be quickly reestablished in all
the islands of Greece.(
Gen. George Kondylis, the War
Minister who took the field in Mace-
donia, wired the War Department
from Seres:
"We entered Seres at 9 o'clock. Rebel
officers fled after robbing the Bank
of Greece's local agency. They are
now at Kavalla, from where I am
informed they will sail on rebel ships.

Report Many Captured
The government announced that
3,000 rebel soldiers had been cap-
tured during the operations in Mace-
donia. Naval losses of rebel forces
were also reported by Greek authori-
ties, who claimed that the light cruis-
er Helle (originally built in the United
States for the Chinese Government),
was in government hands at Kavalla.
The Naval Ministry said that the
crew of the Helle'at 4:20 a.m. had
placed themselves under government
orders after all officers on the active
list had abandoned ship. (The gov-
ernment quoted the crew as saying it
had thrown the rebel officers over-
board.) The Ministry ordered the
vessel to proceed to the Gulf of Sal-

The rebel officers were travelling to-

Tony Sender
Sees End Of
Nazi Regime
Exiled Reichstag Member
Discloses 'Facts' About
Hitler Is Denounced
In Vigorous Terms
Miscellaneous Group Of
Radicals, Fascists Hear
Talk In Socialist Hall
Miss Tony Sender, exiled member
3f the German Reichstag, foretold
the downfall of the Nazi regime in
Germany, and disclosed the "facts"
about the underground 'revolution
which is now being prepared, in a
speech before a mixed audience of
:ocialists, Communists and Americar
Fascists in the SocialistaHall.
Virulent and fiery in her denuncia-
tion of Hitler and his government.
he characterized Germany today as
"the last chapter of Germany history."
She added the qualification that Ger-
many is now "in a period of utter bru-
tality, barbarism, and tyranny."
Tracing the history of the post-war
German republic, she called the rise
of the National Socialist Party a phe-
nomenon due to the inability of the
workers of the country to form a
united front. The Communists were
blamed for an apathy towardstcondi-
tions, and an unwillingness to unite
in opposition to Hitler with the Ger-
man Socialists. She described them
as waiting their turn in power. and
discovering too late that that turn
was not coming.
-!Mass Lacks Initiative'
Today, according to Miss Sender,
the mass of the people of Germany
has simply stopped thinking. They
allow themselves to be led by popular
demagogues without any independent
thought. The idea of personal liberty
has been lost, and with it all free-
dom of thought and action, particu-
larly in the case of the German

Strachey Affair
Quiet, Pending
Decisive Action
Latest Indications Point
To Refusal Of Faculty
Group's Request
The Strachey affair was compara-
tively quiescent last night pending an
official statement from the Univer-
sity Committee on Lecture Policy in
regard to the request by several facul-
ty members to take over the responsi-
bility for the lecture March 14.
Although it was originally an-
nounced that the proposal would be
left before the authorities only until
4 p.m. yesterday, the time was later
shifted to about 6 p.m. today. If no
decision has been announced by that
time, the original Strachey Lecture
Committee will again be active and
the faculty group will be dissolved.
Committeemen Pessimistic
Indications early this morning,
however, were to the effect that the
request would not be granted by the
committee. Efforts to reach Carl F.
Brandt, the committee's spokesman,
for, an official pronouncement were
unavailing, but comment from the
other members exhibited only a desul-
tory interest in the new plan.
Of the two committeemen who were
contacted one was extremely pessi-
mistic about the chances of the facul-
ty group's proposal and the other ex-
pressed complete ignorance of it. One
of the other members was out of
town and the fourth could not be
Rumor Spiked
An early rumor that the lecture
committee had received no official,
signed request from the faculty group
was spiked when Prof. Louis C.. Karp-
inski declared that he had personally
given the petition to Mr. Brandt at
about 4 p.m.
The first committee member spok-
en to intimated that there had been
several petitions from faculty mem-
bers presented during the day, but
repeatedly expressed the belief that
the' matter had been "completely
closed" as far as the committee was
Meanwhile a detailed, notarized
oath was submitted to The Daily by

tive secretary of the National Student

matic fashion, she recounted the
numbers of her friends who had died
before Nazi guns.
Eight Times Returned}
Miss Sender was eight times re-
turned from her constituenc'y in Sax-
ony to the German Reichstag, and she
claims that even today she is in
touch with the true sentiment of her
people. "There is a greater Germany
beneath," she said. and expressed her
belief that it would one day rise again.
Hitler, she characterized in the bit-
ing statement that "the Nazis lie, have
lied in the past, will lie, and know that
they lie!" She told of the revealing
chapters in his book which point to
the destruction of France, and the
extension of the German nation.
"Germany is prepared today to build
one thousand airplanes in a week.
Her armies are trained again. Gas,
light and heavy artillery, machine
guns and rifles, all the munitions of
war are behind Hitler. And with these
is added the greatest horror yet to be
released on the world,rthat of bac-
teriological warfare." These were the
words of warning she gave to the au-
dience, and finally made an appeal
to America to stop here, before it is
too late, the tide of popular unrest and
disunity that can lead to the en-
thronement of a "brutish demagogue."

Fruitless; Mother Says
Sled Was Used In Killing
Search for the murderer of seven-
year-old Richard Streciher, Jr., came
to a stand-still early this morning,
when Washtenaw County authorities
admitted that the case is "one of the
most puzzling we have ever run up
Clue after clue has been run down,
Prosecutor Albert Rapp, who is in
charge of the investigation, said,
"only to leave us further from the
solution than before." The main
course of action followed by the
prosecutor's office and sheriff's last
night was to run down all degener-
ates and other disreputable charac-
ters known.
Another late development in the
case was the disclosure that Mr. and
Mrs. Richard Streicher, of Ypsilanti,
parents of the slain boy, had engaged
private detectives to bring the killer
to justice. This was revealed by H.
B. Baker, an Ypsilanti friend of the
family, who was a pallbearer at the
funeral, held yesterday.
Two Possible Motives '
Early yesterday afternoon, authori-
ties were searching for three persons
in particular, one seen walking
with Richard on the day of his
death, described as "a tall man wear-
ing a long black overcoat."hGerald
Young, 13 years old, said that when
he was playing with Richard Thurs-
day, he had seen the man walk off
toward the Huron River bridge with
him. No definite clues have been
found, however, police admitted.
Two possible theories were ad-
vanced by authorities as to the motive
for the fiendish crime. Ralph South-
ard, Ypsilanti chief of police, stated
the opinion that it was done for re-
venge, while Prosecutor Rapp gives
"slight predominance" to the belief
that it was the work of a sex degen-
The "revenge theory" was given a
set-back yesterday when, after a long
grilling in Chicago by Michigan State
and Ypsilanti police, John Tisto,
uncle of the murdered boy, was re-
leased and "absolved of all connec-
tion with the crime."
Parents Questioned
Prosecutor Rapp now has possess-
ion of little Richard's sled, which was
found near the house after his mur-
der. Mrs. Streicher advanced the
belief that the sled was in some way
connected with the killing. While Dr.
Stacy C. Howard, of St. Joseph's Hos-
pital here, who performed the autop-
sy, said that the wounds could pos-
sibly have been inflicted by the sled
runners, the prosecutor is inclined to
discount the theory. However, he
brought the sled to Ann Arbor last
night for finger-printing.
Contrary to a statement which ap-
peared in a Detroit morning news-
paper, Prosecutor Rapp denied that
he said the parents of the boy "have
not told me all they know." Mr. and
Mrs. Streicher were questioned by
him yesterday, but no new facts were
brought to light, he said.

Aero Engineers
Inspect Stinson
Aircraft Plant

Airport Is
By Group

More than 40 members of the aero-
nautical engineers division of the
A.S.M.E. Saturday made an inspec-
tion trip to the Stinson Aircraft Plant
near Wayne, Mich., and later to the
Wayne County Airport in Detroit.
Bernard DeWeese, '34, at the pres.
ent time an official at the Stinson fac-
tory, conducted the groub through the
plant. The assembly detailsbf the new
Stinson tri-motor airplane proved of
particular interest to the students
The plane is now used between De-
troit and Toledo in test flights by the
American Airlines.
The development of Stinson air-
planes was traced by the grout
through the entire plant, from the
stock room to the final assembly line
and the completed plane. The pre-
dominance of welding in the struc-
ture of modern airplanes was espe-
cially noticeable in the StinsoiY plane
under construction.
On the floor of the hanger in the
Wayne County Airport, which the
students visited following their inspec-
tion of the Stinson plant, their at-
tention was centered on the Roscoe
Turner plane that now holds the pres-
ent transcontinental speed record.
The Wayne County Airport holds
the highest rating issued by the De-
partment of Commerce, that of A-T-
A. An interesting feature is the light-
ing equipment which is controlled en-
tirely from a panel in the observa-
tion tower. The radio and loud-speak-
ing equipment is also located there.
The airport is a complete city ir
itself, having its own power plant,
heating system, hotel, restaurant, am-
bulance, fire fighting equipment and
water supply. While the group was in-
specting the airport, a member of the
club, Francis Wallace, '35E, flew oven

House Repeals
'Pink Slip' Law
By 3TolIVote
WASHINGTON, March 11 -)-
A near-capacity House voted more
than 3 to 1 today that the little "pink

tax returns should never be used.
Shouting down attempts to amend
the measure introduced by Chair-
man Robert L. Doughton, of the Ways
and Means Committee, to repeal the
1934 revenue law's publicity section,
the House sent it along, 304 to 99, to
the Senate, whence came the first
move for publicity.

Calls Former NRA Head
'Chocolate Soldier'; Hits
At Big Bankers

Reply To Priest's
Accusations Made
Coughlin And Long Called
'Public Enemies Number
One And Two' In Return
DETROIT, March 11 -(1)- Hurl-
ing invective to right and left and
pounding his desk with clenched fist,
the Rev. Charles E. Coughlin turned
loose a caustic attack on Hugh S.
Johnson tonight, calling him a "choc-
olate soldier" and declaring that he
would fight to his dying day the
Morgans, the Baruchs, the Kuhn-
Loebs, and "the rest of that wrecking
crew of internationalists."
Coatless and perspiring, Father
Coughlin spoke for 45 minutes over
a national radio hook-up, challenging
the motives behind the criticism
aimed at him a week ago when the
former NRA administrator described
him as being "the leader of a revo-
lutionary party" and one of the "mad
pipers" appearing to the "lunatic
fringe" of the people in his role as
a Catholic priest.
Father Coughlin strongly defended
his right to discuss economic and
political subjects in his Sunday after-
noon discourses and asserted that he
was still staunchly supporting the ad-
ministration of President Roosevelt.
"While it will always be impossible
for me to divest myself of my Cath-
olic priesthood, nevertheless in ac-
cepting the dignities which my re-
ligion conferred on me, I sacrificed
in no respect the rights identified
with my citizenship," Father Cough-
lin said.
Hugh S. Johnson tonight denounced
Father Coughlin and Sen. Huey Long
as "public and political enemies num-
ber one and two" and promised an
early and detailed reply to tonight's
attack by the priest.

Wide Prevalence
Of Colds Reported
Widespread prevalence of colds
among students has kept members of
the Health Service staff busy since
the last few days of "spring weather,"
Dr. William M. Brace, Health Service
physician, said yesterday.
"Ever since the period of mild
weather last week followed by a storm
and the subsequent change in tem-
perature," Dr. Brace stated, "there
has been an ever-increasing stream
of patients suffering from colds, These

colds have been marked by an un-
usually large number of high fevers,
and consequently the infirmary has
been filled to capacity since that
Dr. Brace said that the type of
cold which seems to predominate has
resulted in comparatively severe sick-
ness in several instances. He added
that two cases have developed into
