Dash Record
INDIANAPOLIS, March 23 -()-
The well-balanced University of
Michigan track squad won the Uni-
versity Championship of the Third
Annual Butler Indoor Relays here
tonight, but the surprise of the eve-
ning came in the defeat at 600 yards
of Charlie Hornbostel, world's in-
door record holder for the distance.
Twice beaten by Hornbostel this
winter, Ivan Fuqua, former co-cap-
tain of Indiana University, upset his
teammate, taking the lead at the start
and beating Hornbostel's final sprint
to break the tape in 1 minute, 11.7
seconds, just four tenths of a second
over Hornbostel's record. .
Another brilliant performance was
turned in by Owens, Ohio State's
husky sprinter,. who equalled Ralph
Metcalf's standard of 6.1 seconds in
winning the 60-yard dash. Owens
also won the 60-yard low hurdles.
Michigan's great team of runners
piled up a total of 342 points to win
the team title for the second time in
the three years of relays.

Beckons Youth Of Party

Ex-President Gives
Talk In California
Seen By Democratic Heads
As Attempt To Get Back
Into White House
SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 23 -
- Herbert Hoover today declared that
the Republican party faces its great-
est crisis since the days of Abraham
Lincoln, and called upon the youth
of the party to save the nation from.
un-American government.
In a strongly worded message to
the California Republican Assembly,
the former President broke the two-}
year political silence to demand a re-.
juvenation of the party and a unity
of purpose in defense of American
principles "jeopardized by regimen-
tation and bureaucratic domination."
The California Republican Assem-
bly is sponsored by Young Republi-
cans in an effort to revitalize the
party. It was no formal connection
with the regular state central com-
The rebirth of the Republican
party, Hoover said, "transcends any
personal interest or the selfish inter-
est of any group," and it is the young
men and women of the party we
must "give attention to drift from
nation moorings."
He excorciated the Democratic
business, financial, relief, labor and
agrarian policies and declared that
the present Administration had made
the people "pawns of a centralized
and self-perpetuating government."
He demanded a return to "economic
common sense" and to the fundamen-
tal spirit of "free men and women."
WASHINGTON, March 23-(P)-
Herbert Hoover, whether he chose or
not, sent the 1936 presidential cam-
paign rumbling more audibly today
with his communication to Califor-
nia Republicans condemning the New
Scorned by Democrats as a "piti-
ful effort to get back in the White
House," the message was construed
by some Republicans-in thewords of
Chairman Henry P. Fletcher-as a
"call to arms of all who believe in our
American system of government.''
Readiness of the former president
to speak out combined with other
signs of a reassuring Republican spirit
to herald a quickening of political
strife in the 15 months between now
and the party conventions.
"It's another announcement for
'36," was the view of Speaker Byrnes.
Senator Connally (Dem., Texas)
commented that "if Mr. Hoover 'in
the White House had done only a
fraction of what Mr. Hoover out of
the White House now says should be
done, he would not have to make such

elsewhere in the Pacific generally.

Professor Bonner has done much

In this connection he recently pub-

After receiving his A.B. from Van-
derbilt in 1896, and his master's de-
gree there a year later, he took a
master's from Harvard in 1898 and a
Ph.D. in 1900. He then spent a year
at the University of Berlin and a year
traveling in Greece and Italy.
From 1901 until 1907, when he
came to Michigan, he was professor
of Greek at Peabody Teachers Col-
lege in Nashville. He has been here
since that time with the exception of
the year 1927-1928, which he spent as
annual professor at the American
School of Classical Studies at Athens,
of whose managing committee he is
a member. During that year he
visited the University's Egyption ex-

Mobilized At Once

A tribute to Dean-Emeritus Mor-
timer E. Cooley, the "Grand Old Man"
of the College of Engineering, is Tea-,
tured in the March issue of the Mich-
igan Technic which will go on sale
Monday through Wednesday in the
lobby of the East Engineering Build-
ing and in the corridor over the
Egineering Arch.
The tribute has been written by
Hillard A. Sutin, '37E, in honor of
Dean Cooley's eightieth birthday
which will be celebrated on Thurs-
day of this week. A picture of the,
Dean has been presented by the
Michigan Technic as the frontispiece.
Dean Cooley first became associated
with the University in 1881 at the age
of 26, with the distinction of being
the youngest full professor in the his-
tory of Michigan education. Since
that time, Sutin points out, "Dean
Cooley and the college have matured
together. They are each a product
of the other"
In the "May We Present" depart-
ment of the Michigan Technic, five
seniors in the engineering college
have been cited for their active par-
ticipation in the various enigineering
activities. These students are Eric E.
Sommer, Alvin Mortenson, Tage O.
Jacobson, Russel W. Houvener and
Lester V. Colwell.
A special feature included in the
humor departmentJof the March
Technic is a poem written in honor
(or dishonor) of Prof. Walter L.
Badger of the chemical engineering
department by a group of anonymous
students. The poem is entitled "Owed
to Professor Badger" and is alleged
to be in retaliation to the time when
Professor Barger walked into class
and "inspirationally" addressed his
students with the now famous words:
'Engineers-Men of Michigan-Hell!',

Benito Mussolini Offers
Call To Arms As Reprisal
For Hitler Decree
Three Allied Powers
Will Stand Together
France, Italy And England
To Offer United Front In
Dealing With Germany
ROME, March 23- (P) - Benito
Mussolini trundled forth a war ma-
chine totalling one million men today
as Italy's answer to Germany's rearm-
ament, and declared the nation was
"ready for any threat of war."
Il Duce called the entire military
class of 1911 to arms as a "precau-
tionary measure," and declared, on
the sixteenth anniversary of the Fas-
cist party's founding, that "the mil-
lions of bayonets carried by the people
of the black shirts, accompany our
sincere desire for European collab-
The mobilzation order added 200,
000 men to forces already under arms,
bringing the total for the regular
army to around 600,000, plus some
400,000 black shirt mitlitiamen ready
to move at the drop of a hat.
Government and military circles
said the order was due to European
tenseness created by Germany's de-
cision to rearm. They pointed out
that the Ethiopian situation, which
has called some 30,000 men out of
Italy, does not require anything like
the total number called to arms in
today's communique.
This communique was issued short-
ly after Mussolini's speech in the.
Venezia Square before 10,000 black
shirts gathered to commemorate the
Fascist anniversary.
"The political climate is cloudy and
uncertain," Mussolin said in a char-
acteristically forceful address, adding
that Italy's preparedness for any
event permits her "to look with a
firm and tranquil eye to the task of
the not very distant future which
will be ours."
PARIS, March 23 --R)- France
Italy and England agreed today to
stand together "in complete unity
of purpose" in dealing with the Ger-
man arms crisis.
At Britain's insistence, the tri-
power parley held here to prepare the
way for Anglo-German conversations
in Berlin Monday and Tuesday agreed
to proceed cautiously and survey the
ground thoroughlyebefore forcing the
issue before the League of Nations.
Capt. Anthony Eden, who will ac-
company Foreign Minister Sir John
Simon to Berlin tomorrow, spoke for
Great Britain; Foreign Minister
Pierre Laval, who yesterday demand-
ed "regrouping of the Allies against
Germany," represented France; Un-
dersecretary of State Fulvio Suvich
was Italy's spokesman.
Even as the three met over the
luncheon table and the council tables
at the Quai d' Orsay, the French gen-
eral staff announced' transfer of some
30,000 troops to garrisons nearer the
Rhine. Italy, through Benito Mus-
solini, summoned 220,000 more men
to the colors.
