Wins Over
Ohio, 6-4
Wolverines Overtake Ohio
In Big Ten Standings As
Larson Defeats Ulrich
Oliver And Rudness
Deliver In Pinches
Patchin Slated To Meet
Peters, Buckeye Ace, In
Today's Game
Michigan passed Ohio State in the
Big Ten baseball standings yesterday
when the Wolverines defeated the
Buckeyes, 6 to 4, at Ferry Field, work-
ing behind the six-hit hurling of
Berger Larson. Michigan has now
won three and lost two for a percent-
age of .600, and Ohio State has won
four and lost three for an average of
.571. The two clubs will battle it out
again today at 3:15, with Ronnie Pet-
ers, for the Buckeyes, and Art Patch-
in, for Michigan, slated to hook up
in 'a hurling duel.
Coach Stahl upset the dope when
he sent Marvin Ulrich to the box in
place of Peters in yesterday's game,
but the way things turned out it was
perhaps fortunate for Michigan that
the Buckeye's ace did not start. Lar-
son, while allowing only six hits, was
wild, giving five costly walks and hit-
ting one batter with a pitched ball.}
He struck out six.
Two Bad Innings - Six Runs
Ulrich hurled a good game for the
Buckeyes, allowing eight hits, but had
a bad time of it in the third and
fourth innings when Michigan scored
all of its runs, with the aid of twof
walks and three Buckeye errors.
Capt. Russ Oliver and George Rud-
ness delivered timely hits in these
innings, Oliver driving in three runs
with a double and single and Rud-
ness sending two across the plate1
with a single.
Two errors helped Michigan to
score twice in the third and take thel
lead temporarily, 2 to 1. With one1
down Rudness made two bases onl
Tippy Dye's bad throw. Clayt Paul-
son then hit a grounder to Wickel
at third and was safe when the throw
pulled McAfee off the bag at first.
Oliver came through with a long
double into right center, scoring Rud-
ness and Paulson.
Four Runs In Fourth
Ulrich's wildness in the fourth, plus
Ohio State's third error enabled the
Wolverines to cash in with a four run]
dluster. Heyliger and Williams
walked with none down, and ad-
vanced on a pass ball. Larson was
out, second to first, Heyliger and
Williams holding their bases. Ford
was safe when McAfee pulled his foot
off the bag. With the bases loaded,t
Rudness singled driving in Heyliger1
and Williams and sending Ford to
third. Ford then crossed the plate
when Paulson forced Rudness at sec-
ond. Oliver waited for Paulson toI
steal second and then singled, scor-
ing the final Michigan run.f
Larson succeeded in getting him-
self in a hole in each of the first four1
frames of yesterday's game, but in
the fifth settled down when he hadl
a three-run lead to protect, givingt
up but one run and one hit the re-
mainder ofthe way.
Ohio took the lead in the first in-t
ning when Clowson got a triple withe
two down and scored on a pass ball.t
Two more runs were scored in the

fourth. With one out, Mosier singledt
and stole second. Dye and Hamil-t
ton walked, filling the bases. Pros-
enjak was hit by a pitched ball, forc-
ing Mosier, and Wickel's fly to rightt
permitted another runner to score.x
Finish Scoring In Sixth
Ohio's last run in the sixth was the1
result of an error and bad judgmentt
on the part of Larson. Dye took twot
bases when Oliver muffed Williams'k
throw. Hamilton then hit to thel
box, and Larson elected to catch Dye
going into third. The throw was latet
and nobody was out with men on firsts
and third. Prosenjak hit a short flyr
to right. Wickel went down short
to first, Dye scoring.
Jack Teitelbaum was the outstand-
ing fielder on the diamond yesterday.
The smooth workin Wolverine short-r
stop accepted eigh] fielding chances
without a flaw, furnishing several
brilliant pick-ups in deep short which
were followed by long, accurate
throws. He committed one error
when he dropped the ball at second1
with a possible double play ahead of

Faculty At Pitt
Testify Before
Professors Express Fear
Of Discussing Economic
Problems In Class
PITTSBURG, Pa., May 10 -(AP)-
Twelve University of Pittsburg facul-
ty members testified today before a
legislative committee that there is an
"atmosphere of fear" among the
school teachers.
Each witness was asked by com-
mittee members if he agreed with the
assertion that faculty members were
fearful of their jobs and each replied
in the affirmative.
Dr. Marion K. McKay, economic
professor and tax adviser to Gov.
George H. Earle, expressed the "fear,"
"Somehow or other there is some-
thing in the atmosphere at Pitt that
exercises a restraining influence on
the discussion of problems that neces-
sarily come up in any course that
deals with vital questions concerning
the existing economic order.
Other professors, however, said the
"fear" was due principally to uncer-
tain tenure under the one-year ap-
pointment system.
Doctor McKay told of a radio talk
he was to give on "Taxation" which
the University officials cancelled the
day before he was to give it. He
said Chancellor Bowman later told
"I do not know what you were going
to say but the Legislature is in ses-
sion and although what you may say
may be entirely correct there might be
some member who would get the
wrong impression and thus endanger
the appropriation."

Stephen M. DuBrul formerly asso-
ciated with the NRA and now with
the statistical department of Gener-
al Motors Corporation will speak on
"Stabilization of Employment in the
Automobile Industry." Mr. DuBrul
is well qualified to speak on his sub-
ject, inasmuch as his connection
with the NRA has enabled him to be-
come intimately acquainted with the
much discussed NRA report on the
automobile industry.
Benjamin E. Young, vice-president
of the National Bank of Detroit, will
cnclude the morning session with his
talk "The Practical Side of the Bank-
ing Business." Following Mr. Young's
address the group will break up into
three round table discussions on
Marketing, Accounting and Finance.
Dean C. E. Griffin of the School
of Business Administration will pre-
side over the luncheon meeting at
which one of the most interesting
subjects of the conference, "Critical
Comments On Business Education,"
will be presented by four alumni of
the Business Administration School.
White, '28BAd., Eugene B. Power, '30
BAd., and Willard H. Zentgrebe, '32.
BAd., will give the addresses.
Dr. Clarence S. Yoakum, vice-presi-
dent of the University, will preside
at the closing banquet to be held at
6:30 p.n at the Union. At the din-;
ner Robert P. Briggs of the economics
department will present the Beta
Gamma Awards for Scholarship to
seniors in the Business Administra-
tion School.
Awards were not presented to last
year's seniors and those of last year's
class that will receive them tonight
are Donald Jesse Bevis, Henry R. E.
Block, George M. Rubenstein, John
H. Savage, Jr., and Nelson J. Young.
Members of this year's graduating
class to receive the awards are Robert
S. Davis, Franklin H. LaRowe and
John H. Westing. Each year but one
member of the Junior class is pre-
sented with an award. The recipient
of the Junior class award tonight will
be Frances Butler.
The principal address of the con-
ference will be given by Prof. Ernest
M. Fisher on leave from the Univer-
sity this semester and now Economic
Adviser to the Federal Housing Com-
mission. The internationally known
economist is expected to discuss the
New Deal from the economic stand-
point in his address "Business and the

Navy officials in Washington said,
however, that not all the aircraft
would fly to Midway Island, 1,323
miles west and north of here, the ap-
parent destination when they took off.
TheWashington officers said some
of the aircraft would participate in
other activities, presumably connect-
ed with extensive fleet operations now
in progress.
Existence of a censorship at Mid-
way Island was admitted by the
Washington officers, who said that
Admiral Joseph M. Reeves, command-
ing the fleet, undoubtedly had sent a
vessel to the little island to regulate
dispatches from the cable office there.
Observers here concluded that the
fighting planes came down for the
night either at French Frigate Shoals,
500 miles from Honolulu, or at Pearl
and Hermes Reef, 100 miles this side
of Midway Island.
Some of the 153 ships of the fleet
were known to be in that vicinity.
With surface vessels near, the fight-
ing aircraft could have alighted at
either place, obtained fuel and service
in the coral-encircled waters easily
from a warship and continued the
operations after an over-night stop.

F'acutv Ur oed To LaieSy
* LaRue Says

Afternoon Sessions
Chairman Says Rules Were
Installed To Distribute
'Classes More Evenly
Saturday classes will be compulsory
for all students in the College of
Literature, Science, and the Arts next
year, it was announced yesterday by
Prof. George R. LaRue, head of the
zoology department, and chairman of
a committee of faculty men appointed
by the Executive Committee of the
Literary College to report on the pos-
sible distribution of classes.
Recommendations to that effect
were adopted recently by the Execu-
tive Committee, have since been ap-
proved by the heads of all depart-
ments, and will go into effect in Sep-
tember. The new regulations require
specifically that: "Each student be
required to have a Saturday class, and
that a committee be appointed to
grant exemptions from Saturday work
only to those students who have legit-
imate reasons for such exemptions."
Not Aimed At Week-End
Embodied in the same plan was a
requirement that every department
shall schedule not less than one fourth
of its work in the afternoons, sem-
inars, pro-seminars, and laboratory
work not included in the one fourth,
Each department shall further sched-
ule one tenth of its classroom hours
on Saturday morning, exclusive of
laboratory work.
Professor LaRue attributed the
move to a desire for better distribu-
tion of classes and work, rather than
any intention to cut down student
week-ends or keep them in Ann Ar-
"The increase in the number of
students in the Literary College last
fall created an unusual demand for
class rooms," he explained. "It seems
likely that another increase in en-
rollment may be expected in the fall
of 1935.
"There is, of course, no hope for
new buildings. The only way to gain
space, then, is to use what we have
more efficiently by rearranging the
class schedules so as to make use of
Saturday morning and make better
use of the afternoon periods."
Department Heads Approve
The most recent step in the plan
was its approval by a meeting of the
heads of departments, who agreed
to formulate schedules based on the
recommendation of the committee, he
The recommendations were found-
ed on action taken bythe Executive
Committee of the Literary College in
1916, to the effect that all depart-
ments should schedule afternoon and
Saturday class periods to a greater
extent, and that all freshmen be
required to take Saturday classes.
The latter regulation, however, was
rescinded in March, 1931.
Other changes which are expected
to ensue include the scheduling of
more laboratory hours in forenoon
periods, and a redistribution of large
classes, to relieve peak loads at con-
gested hours. The committee which
drew up the plan for the Saturday
classes is still at work, Professor La-
Rue said, in a survey of the distribu-
tion of classes throughout the week.
Peak Loads Noted
"It is recommended that a special
study be made of the distribution of
the large lecture sections, on the as-
sumption that better distribution and
coordination of these large classes
may be secured," the report states.
"After such possible redistribution has
been accomplished, no department
shall schedule any class of 100 or more
students without first consulting the
Director of Classification, in order
that the desired spread of the large
classes may be maintained."
Great congestion, for instance, has
been found in the hours between 10
and 12 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday

and Thursday from large lecture sec-
tions in elementary courses. As an
example he chose Zoology I and Bot-
any I, which have lectures at 11' a.m.,
on Tuesday and Thursday, and thus
prohibit a bloc of 700 students from

Discover Remains Of Ancient
Prehistoric Animal Near Here,

VASSAR, May 10.- (Special) -
A discovery which hearkens back to
the days when prehistoric animals
roamed over the hills and plains of
Michigan was made yesterday by
Frank Spencer, a farmer, who lives
near here. Paleontologists from the
University were asked to come and
view the parts unearthed.
The remains discovered by Spencer
were buried only two feet below the
surface of the earth. The farmer was
cutting away the brush on property
in order to provide a new section of
farming land, and it was the first time
the spot had ever been cleared. The
subsoil of the acreage is very sandy
and geologists believe that at one time
the shore of Saginaw Bay extended
to this piece of land.

ness and what is believed by the
farmer to have been a tusk of the
animal was approximately seven feet
long and very thick at the end, for its
point had been broken off.
Further excavations of the spot
have not been made, and the farmer
is awaiting the arrival of the Univer-
sity experts. It is believed that many
more bones lie beneath those already
unearthed. Spencer stated that he
had found remains of skeletons as far
as 30 feet below the surface.
Prof. Ermine C. Case, professor of
Historical Geology and Paleontology,
stated that remains of mastodons
can be found in many of the swamps
of Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and In-
diana. He said that 80 or 90 of such
specimens had been discovered in
Michigan alone.
