WASHINGTON, March 20. -(A) -
A transatlantic extension of the "good

more than $1,500,000,000 were dis-

Meanwhile Sir John Simon, Brit-
ish foreign minister, summoned Ray
Atherton, American Chartre De Af-

line of Britain's position for trans-

Claude Swanson, secretary of the
navy, told newspapermen the navy

from its plan of laying down 78
smaller vessels by 1939.

At the last meeting of the Inter-

A committee was appointed to for-

which need correction. This com-
mittee report will be taken up for
ratification at the next meeting of
the 2ouncil which will be held early
in April.
Some of the more important regu-

any hazing activities between the

Iwo Regents
Oppose Auto
Ban Change
Three Refuse To Discuss
Subject Before It Comes
Before Entire Board
Hemans Advances
Plan Prevents Freshmen
And Ineligibles From
Using Automobiles
Two members of the Board of Re-
gents expressed themselves as being
opposed to relaxation of the Uni-
versity automobile ban in accordance
with the proposal advanced Tuesday
by Regent Charles F. Hemans, a sur-
vey of the sentiment of the Board
conducted yesterday by The Daily
over telephonerand telegraph revealed.
Of the other five members, in ad-
dition to Regent Hemans, two could
not be contacted at a late hour last
night, and three others declined to
discuss the subject before it has offi-
cially come before the Board.
Beal Well Satisfied
Regent Junius E. Beal of Ann Ar-
bor, last night stated that he is
"pretty well satisfied" with the pres-
ent regulations.
Regent Esther M. Cram of Flint,
wired The Daily that she believed the
majority of the students are "better
off" without automobiles.
Regents Edmund C,. Shields of Lan-
sing, James O. Murfin of Detroit, and
Ralph Stone, also of Detroit, refused
to make any statement.
Neither Regents Richard R. Smith,
of Grand Rapids, nor Franklin Cook,
of Hillsdale, could be contacted by
telegram last night.
The plan suggested by Regent He-
mans in a statement made Tuesday at
Lansing provides for a regulation
which prevents only freshmen and
students deficient in their academic
work from using automobiles.
Hopes to Lift Ban
"My personal opinion," he stated,
"is that the ruling should be relaxed
and I intend to bring the proposal be-
fore the next meeting of the Board in
the hope that the ban may be lifted
by next fall."
"I see no reason why it would not
be an improvement over the present
plan," Regent Hemans said.
The complete text of Regent Cram's
telegram opposing modification fol-
"I feel that the auto ban is not
a reflection upon the ages of students,
but a serious effort on the part of
University authorities to lessen acci-
dents; to safeguard life and limb in
the crowded condition of a small town
which harbors a great university and
to defend the student himself from
the distractions which certainly fol-
low in the wake of liberty to all to
drive at any and all times. Students
who need to drive are given permis-
sion but the number who require such
permission is relatively small."

Our Rubbers, Please --
Spring Comes To Town
Spring is here!
It officially arrived at 8:18 a.m.
today and come what may --snow,
ice, and cold -it is still spring.
The occasion today is the vernal
equinox, when the sun, in its appar-
ent motion, crosses from the south to
the north of the equator. The earth's
axis is at right angles to the sun rays,
and day and night are of equal
length in this hemisphere. It doesn't
mean anything in particular, Univer-
sity astronomers point out, except the
arrival of that balmy, amorous pe-
riod - spring.
And while predictions indicate that
the mercury will probably rise ap-
propriately enough, it was reported
last night that Ann Arbor was due to
greet spring in its typical fashion -
with rain.

Another of the University Lectures
of this year's series will be given to-
day by Prof. Lyman Lloyd Bryson of
Columbia Teachers' College, who is

Professor Bryson will lead the local
Community Forum Sunday on the
subject "Are We Done With Democ-
racy?" and will also speak at Ann
Arbor High School Friday and Uni-
versity High Saturday on the sub-
ject, "What the Average Citizen
Should Know About Foreign Affairs."
While engaging in newspaper work
in Omaha and Detroit from 1907 to
1913, he received his A.B. from Mich-

later became assistant professor of
rhetoric and journalism, remaining
until 1917, when he began a service
with the Red Cross which lasted until
1924, and carried him through Eu-
rope, America, and Asia.
Since that time he has been con-
nected with educational work in the
West, and from January, 1933,'until
June, 1934, conducted the experi-
mental Adult Education Community

Editor Charges
Colleges Face
Great Crisis
Columbia Student States
Fascism Is A Menace To
NEW YORK, March 20 -(R)-
American colleges, James A. Wechs-
ler, editor of the Columbia "Specta-
tor" charged today, are faced with the
"greatest crisis" in their history -
"the menace of Fascism."
Wechsler, who spoke over a na-
tional radio hook-up, asserted that
100,000 students throughout the coun-
try would demonstrate "the sensitiv-
ity to disaster" by going on strike
April 12 "against war and Fascism."
With swift, terrifying strides, the;
forces of reaction are advancing,"
Wechsler said, "threatening to destroy
our last vestiges of freedom."
"In William RandolphH earst's
crusade is symbolized the most peri-
lous development in American life1
today, a challenge which we can1
neither dismiss nor accept with stolid-1
"This is the menace of Fascism. It
is an eminent, a profound reality; it
is no left-wing shibboleth or alarmist
hysteria. The 'man on horseback' is
already riding."
The young student editor declared
that college trustees and boards of
education are drawn from the "vested'
interests," reaching their positions
through financial supremacy rather
than scholastic attainments.
Council Is To
Decide Issue
Of Government
The long-debated question of stu-
dent government will probably be de-
cided by the Undergraduate Council
when it meets at 5 p.m. today in the
Union, Carl G. Hilty, '35, president
stated last night.
The Senate Committee On Stu-
dent Affairs last week refused to take
any action on the various plans of-
fered because it believed that the
present Council as a legally organ-
ized student body should have the
control over the question of changing
the plan of government.
Hilty stated that the Senate Com-
mittee would only have taken action
had a great number of the student
body voted for one of the plans and
if the Undergraduate Council then
refused to recognize the sentiment
expressed by that group.
Japan Ambassador
Predicts Peace Era
NEW YORK, March 20. - (AP)-
Despite heavily increased armaments
among nations and still unsolved in-
ternational problems, Ambassador Hi-
rosi Faito of Japan tonight predicted
an era of peace among the great,
powers of the world.
"I am not alarmed by the frequent
reports of danger," he told a dis-
tinguished audience at the annual
dinner of the Japan Society of New
York. "I can see none that is serious
on any frontier, neither across the
Atlantic or across the Pacific and

Appeal Of France
Group May Invoke
Article Of Treaty
Crucial Time For Peace
Of Europe Is Next Six
Months,_Experts Say
GENEVA, March 20.- (A) - An ex-
traordinary session of the League of
Nations Council to deal with France's
appeal against German rearmament
probably will be held Thursday,
March 28, League officials said to-
The announcement came as mili-
tary experts here, contemplating Ger-
many's increasing ability to produce
war supplies, said they considered the
next six months the crucial period for
Europe's peace.
Intense interest was shown in the
French appeal, which some observers
asserted contains potential dynamite,
especially as to whether it will invoke
Article 213 of the Versailles Treaty
which binds Germany to facilitate
any investigation of her armaments
which the Council, acting by majority
vote, may consider necessary.
It was anticipated that France, sup-
ported by the Little Entente and the
Balkan Entente, would be able to
muster the needed majority,
To Ignore Session
A German spokesman said his na-
tion, whose resignation from the
League becomes effective in October,
would ignore the Council session,
sending no representative to defend
her arms course.
That the French decision will stir
up much smoke, but do nothing to
advance the cause of disarmament
was the consensus in German circles
at Geneva.
League officials said the text of the
French communication to Geneva
probably will be published simultane-
ously tomorrow in Paris and Geneva.
The military observers expressed
belief that the next six months would
be the Continent's period of peril was
based on their contention that the
end of the period will see Germany
grinding out armaments at top speed.
Powers To Have Parley
LONDON, March 20.- (P)- A
smashing vote of confidence in the
French senate for the French govern-
ment's determined efforts to curb
German rearmament today followed
closely decisions of the British,
French and Italian governments to
hold direct discussions of the problem.
Great Britain, yielding to French
and Italian insistence, agreed to
abandon diplomatic negotiations and
send Capt. Anthony Eden, lord privy
seal, to Paris for the tri-party con-
ference, to be held one day before
Eden and Sir John Simon, British
foreign minister, go to Berlin to con-
fer with Adolph Hitler.
The vote of confidence given Prem-
ier Pierre-Etienne Flandin's stout re-
sistance in the face of Hitler's deci-
To Send Protest
Attention was focused on the
French note of protest to be delivered
to the Berlin government tomorrow.
It was expected to criticize much more
sharply than the London protest the
Reich's violation of the armament
provisions of the Versailles Treaty.
Addressing the French senate be-
fore the vote, Premier Flandin warned
his nation to be "vigilant," expressed
"complete confidence in the country's
fighting strength" and said "our sol-
diers would be filled with the same
spirit of sacrifice in case of emergency
as they were in 1914."
Cite Germany's Strength
Other speakers declared that Ger-
many's army now numbers 750,000
men, with reserves estimated at 1,-
200,000, asserted that the Reich is
preparing another war fleet of 400,-
000 tons and predicted territorial pro-
visions of the Versailles Treaty, which
took such former German areas as
Danzig, the Polish Corridor, Memel

and Alsace-Lorraine from her, would
be next to go by the board.
Anxious to tighten bonds tying
France to Russia and Italy, the
French government announced plans
to send Foreign Minister Pierre La-
val to Moscow, and asked the Cham-
ber of Deputies to bring up for dis-
cussion tomorrow the Franco-Italian
accords which Laval and Benito Mus-
solini signed at Rome Jan. 7.

Exhibit At Museums Poits Oute
-Dangers Of Am oebic Dysentery

Amoebic dysentery, the terrifying
disease which a Chicago hotel cook
gave to thousands of World's Fair vis-
itors'in 1933 and which is still rav-
aging the United States, is explained
and the means of its infection pointed
out in an exhibit being displayed at
the University Museums.
The exhibit, arranged by E. L.
Cheetum, Grad., under the direction
of Miss Crystal Thompson's depart-I
ment of visual education, represents'
in detail the amoeba as it winds its
death-like way through the digestive
The disease is controlled princi-
pally, the exhibit explains, from water
and raw salads. The amoeba, in its
tissue-like shell, or cyst, enters the
esophagus. In the exhibit this is
shown as a blue disk, a quarter of an
inch in diameter, magnified about 1,-
200 times.
When the amoeba enters the stom-
ach, the digestive juices work on the'

done when it takes in red blood cells
giving off poisons that destroy the
tissue. Painful ulcers are caused which
in turn form other ulcers, undermin-
ing the wall of the intestine. As this
condition continues, the exhibition
shows how the entire intestine is
broken away, a condition which al-
most invariably results in peritonitis.
Certain types of individuals are
immune to amoebic dysentery, the
exhibit points out. It is in these car-
riers of the disease that the danger
really lies. These persons unknowingly
carry the amoeba in the cyst, as do
certain types of individuals who have
had the disease and recovered.
The best known remedy, Mr. Chee-
tum states, is Carbarsone, a fluid
which kills the amoeba. The healing
is, of necessity, he said, left to na-
tural processes.
The exhibit quotes Dr. Mark S.
Daugherty, noted public health au-
thority, as to precautions to be taken
in avoiding amoebic dysentery. They
