Lose Opening Conference
Game, 3-2; Regeczi Gets
Michigan'sOnly Hit
Patehin Goes Whole
Game Against Peters
All 'M' Runs Scored On
Walks; Ohio Scores On
Triple And Error
COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 19 -(Spe-
cial)-University of Michigan's base-
ball team lost its opening Big Ten
game to Ohio State here today, 3 to
2, narrowly escaping a hit-less per-
formance when John Regeezi singled
off Peters in the ninth inning.
The game was a pitcher's battle
throughout. While Peters was trying
to hurl his way into baseball's hall
of fame, Art Patchim went the route
for the Wolverines, and allowed only
five hits. But for two passes issued
to Clayt Paulson, the Buckeye hurler
would have had a shut-out victory.
Both Michigan runs were the result
of walks, while Ohio scored with
base hits.
Coach Stahl's men opened the
scoring in the first inning, pushing
across two runs with two hits and an
error. With two men down, Wikel
singled. Clawson, who for the past
two years has taken a liking to Patch-
in's pitches, then slammed out a
triple, scoring the first counter. He
himself then scored on an error by
Jack Teitlebaum.
Michigan countered in the fifth
with a run. Clayt Paulson walked,
stole second, went to third on a passed
ball, and scored on Regeczi's fly.
Ohio came back in the same in-
ning, however, to add another tally.
Mosier doubled and Peters won his
own ball game by driving in what
proved to be the winning run with a
In the ninth, Paulson walked, went
to second on Oliver's out, and scored
on Regecz's aforementioned hit,
which, while not affecting the out-
come of the contest, cost Peters a no-

"It is very unlikely that the Rus-
sian development can be repeated in
the West," Prof. Roy W. Sellars of the
philosophy department 'declared in
an interview yesterday.
"Russia had a small middle class,"
he explained, "a strong political rev-
olutionary tradition owing to the de-
fect of "Tsarism, and the prestige of
the rulingclass'had vanished. Con-
ditions are not the same in the United

ica," Professor Sellars said. He crit-
icized democracy. as having "largely
ignored fundamntal questions. Dem-
ocracy," he declared, "is unduly op-
timistic and follows a traditional lais-
sez-faire philosophy."
However, the political philosopher
asserted that "America, together with
England, France, and the Scandina-
vian countries, is the hope of democ-
racy today." In the case of the United
States, he said, this is because of the
"great elasticity" we give it. As an
example, he cited the "great delega-
tion of power" given to President

Professor Sellars, in pointing out
the intense nationalistic policies in the
present day political philosophies on
the world scene, criticized the Ver-
sailles treaty because "it is not con-
structive and expresses the desires of
the allies only." Since the treaty's
ratification, he stated, "the whole ef-
fort has been to maintain the status
Professor Sellars is of the opinion
that "statesmanship in Europe failed
in the Treaty of Versailles and ever
since." He called the 17 years since
the end of the World War "lost," and
declared that "the German Republic
was not given a chance."
Viewing the crisis abroad, he stated
that what confronts Europe is a "con-

Professor Sellars declared that "the
powers of Europe should concede
justice to Germany, not because of
her threats, but because of moral
principals, based on just equality."

For Financial Aid
Session Is Marked By Little
Fighting As Democrats
Mass Votes
WASHINGTON, April 19.-(P) -
The Social Security bill, designed
eventually to levy upward of $2,783,-
200,000 in new taxes and in return
give financial aid to the aged, jobless,
children and mothers, was rammed1
through the House today by the over-
powering Democratic majority.
The final roll call - 372 for and1
only 33 against --ended two days less
than three months of rough and
tumble dispute. Among those voting
against the bill was Rep. Clare Hoff-
man, (Rep., Mich. Indications were
that more word-battering was in
store for the measure in the Senate.
As approved by the House, the bill
embodied everything outlined in the
President's message Jan. 17. At that,
time he suggested the "establishment
of sound means toward a greater fu-
ture economic security of the Amer-
ican people."
Little Serios Fighting
Many Republicans, who had sought
to strip the bill of its new taxes, were
forced - to prevent "political suicide,"
they said privately -to vote for the
whole measure.
In contrastto yesterday when the
Democratic machine smothered the
liberalizing Townsend, Lundeen, Pope,
Greenway and other plans, as well as
Republican protests of "unconstitu-
tionality," there was little serious'
fighting today. Only 16 amendments
were proposed and only one, which'
had the approval of the Democratic
ways and means committee, was
adopted. It was not significant.
As the final vote approached, Rep.
James W. Mott, (Rep., Oregon), chid-
ingly complimented the Democratic
chiefs who had put the bill through
without a single change not accepted
by the leaders.
"I have never seen a machine so
well oiled," he said.
Loud yells and applause from the
Democratic side answered.
Provisions of Bill
In the form in which it passed the
House, the bill would:
1. Authorize an appropriation of
$49,750,000 next fiscal year, and as
much as was necessary. thereafter,
for grants to states which pay pen-
sions to persons who have reached
65. The Federal contribution, on a
dollar - for - dollar matching basis,
would be limited to $15.
2. Levy taxes, beginning Jan. 1,
1937, on payrolls and incomes for
repayment to workers as annuities
after they reach 65. The taxes start
at 1 per cent each on employee and
employer and rise % per cent a year
every three years to 3 per cent each
in and after 1949.
3. Put a tax on the payrolls of all
employers with 10 or more workers.
That would start at 1 per cent on Jan.
1, 1936, and increase to 3 per cent
Jan. 1, 1938. From this Federal tax,
an employer could deduct up to 90
per cent of what he had paid to a state
unemployment insurance fund,but
expenditure of the money would be
left almost entirely up to the states.
4. Make jsmaler , appropriations
for Federal aid to states which give
assistance to dependent and crippled
children, to mothers, and to persons
injured in industry.
5. Auhorize additional expendi-
tures for public health work.
Actuaries estimated that the tax
for old-age annuities would be $560,-
200,000 in 1938, and increase gradually
to $1,877,200,000 in 1950. They cal-
culated that the unemployment in-
surance levy would bring in $501,000,-
000 in 1938 and $906,000,000 in 1950.

BERLIN, April 19. - () - While
Europe tensely awaited Adolf Hitler's

nish the occasion for huge public dem-
onstrations, however, some quarters
believed it not unlikely that the Chan-
cellor might at the last minute seize
the opportunity to express his views
on the Geneva development.
iPreparations for the birthday cele-.
bration were elaborate. Employers
were instructed to give their em-
ployees time off to allow them to at-
tend the ceremonies. Church bells

will bedeck almost every window in
the country and stores will display

has become the most absolute ruler
of a great nation in modern times.
11 Duce Favors Monarchists
ROME, April 19. -- (A) - "A cordial
colloquy of more than an hour" be-
tween Benito Mussolini and Prince
von Starhemberg, Europe's chief ex-
ponents of Fascism, today served to
emphasize official Italy's growing sen-
timent for restoration of the Haps-
burg dynasty in Austria.
Von Starhemberg, handsome, youth-
ful vice chancellor of Austria, leader
of the 100,000-strong Fascist Heim-
wehr and stanch monarchist, talked
to Il Duce, it was learned, about the
Hapsburgs, Austria's rearmament and
the forthcoming Danubian conference
in Rome.
It is freely conceded here that Ital-
ian officialdom looks upon eventual
restoration of the monarchy in little
Austria as the only means of staving
off permanently Austria's union with
Germany. Austrian circles said to-
night, however, that Von Starhem-
berg's report on prospects for an im-
mediate restoration was not entirely
Austria alone, without Hungary,
would not be sufficient domain for
the Hapsburgs, he was reported as
saying, and the trend of recent Hun-
garian elections was deemed unfa-
vorable to the monarchy.

Ruthiven Protests Slashed
Budget In Letter T o
Governor Fitzgerald
LANSING, April 19--(4)--The
biennium appropriation for the Uni-
versity of Michigan, cut $1,100,000 a
year in the recommendations of the
house ways and means committee, is
now before the house and will come
up for the third reading next Wed-
nesday or Thursday.
The University appropriation, along
with other appropriation bills, was
sent to the House Thursday. Under
a house rule it cannot come up for
third reading before five days have
elapsed after being reported out by
the committee.
The proposal of the ways and means
committee of the House to drastically
slash the University's appropriation
would constitute "one of the greatest
blows" in the histor.y of this institu-
tion, President Alexander G. Ruthven
told Governor Fitzgerald in a letter
which was received at Lansing yes-
President Ruthven advanced the
contention that, if the proposed ap-
propriation is adopted, the University
will be seriously hampered.
The original appropriation measure
was amended Wednesday in the House
committee to give the University an
annual budget of $2,700,000 instead of
the $3,800,000 which was provided for
in the bill as it was first introduced.
The income of the University for
the past two years has been approxi-
mately $4,000,000 per year-$3,200,000
from the state and the other $800,-
000 from reserves, which were mostly

sity Hospital by the various counties

Signs Baldwin Bill;
Proposal. Modified

LANSING, April 19 -( )- In the
presence of high officials of the Mich-
igan department of the American
Legion, Governor Fitzgerald signed
the Baldwin bill today requiring in-
structors in all institutions of higher
learning to subsc'ribe to an oath of
allegiance to the constitution.
Penalties for failure to comply with
the new statute would bring a remov-
al of the appropriation for state-sub-
ported institutions. Tax exemption
would be removed for private colleges.
Although the Legislature gave the
new law immediate effect, provisions
of the act need not be enforced until
Oct. 1.
Lester O. Moody, of Port Huron,
state commander of the American
Legion, and Walter F. Reynolds, of
Detroit, chairman of the subversive
activities committee of the Legion,
witnessed the governor's signature
on the new act.
The Legion officials then went to
the Senate where Sen. Joseph A. Bald-
win, Republican, Albion, sponsor of
anti-communism legislation, attempt-
d to push through another bill mak-
ing it a felony to advocate the over-
throw of government. Baldwin with-
drew his attempt however, when he

LANSING, April 19-(P)-The anti-
lomfiunism bill, sponsored jointly by
3enators Joseph Baldwin and Miller
Dunckel, was stripped of most of its
subject matter in the Senate today
after the governor had signed a.com-
arison measure by Senator Bald-
vin requiring college instructors to
;wear allegiance to the United States.
Senator Baldwin offered an amend-
nent that struck out most of the
anti-communism bill, leaving only
the clause prohibiting appeals for the
>verthrow of the government and
Denying the ballot to political parties
advocating such overthrow,
Baldwin explained that much of
,he bill was duplicated by his own
neasure, and said any other points

taken up in a separate measure.
The anti-communism bill and the
3aldwin amendment were passed over
or the day without action, but it is
3xpected the Senate will follow Bald-
yin's recommendations.

the Federal Housing Administration,
spoke yesterday afternoon before a
meeting of the Ann Arbor Real Es-

Mr. Foley described to the Ann Ar-

of the town.
Outlining the work that this or-

out the change in financing that has
become possible in home construction.
The old mortgage system has been
greatly modified and new homes have
been made a much more accessible
commodity than formerly.
In addition to his speech at the

The latest display in the corridor
cases of the main library arranged
by Miss Ella M. Hymans, curator of
rare books, features the McMillan
Shakespearean collection, a group of
books purchased with funds given the
library by former Senator James B.
McMillan, of Detroit.
Only the rarer and more interest-
ing items of the, collection are on
display as the entire group consists
of over 8,000 pieces. Of these 6,525
were purchased in 1885 underrthe
supervision and direction of Prof.
Demmon. Many others have been
added during the succeeding years by
various Shakespearean experts.
Perhaps most interesting of the
items on display are the numerous
examples of rewriting and altera-
tion of the Shakespeare's famous
works. Few of the plays escaped

in the possession of the University.
One of the rarer pieces is the Restora-
tion quarto of "Hamlet," only six
copies of which are known to be in
existence. The edition is character-
ized bythe "fivetlinesimprint."
In the case of translations are rep-
resentative imprints from the major-
ity of the principal languages and
countries. There are copies of the
Wuland German edition of 1765, the
first translation into any foreign
language, the first Dutch translation
of 1778, Le Tourneur's French edi-
tion also of 1778, an Italian edition

Jacobson, who took his AB degree
in education and his master's degree
here in two years, was arrested in
Helsingfors, the Finnish capital, in
October, 1933, by government police.
He was accused of aiding in a Soviet
plot to obtain official Finnish military
secrets. During his long trial, which
was culminated with his five year sen-
tence in April, 1934, he gave "valu-
able information" to the Finnish High
Court, which is claimed to have aided
the prosecution's care against others
It is for this reason that the state
department at Washington and Hor-

ister to Finland, expressed the opin-
ion that Jacobson's term, termed
"lenient" by the sentencing judge,
might be shortened more.
