Hubbs- Vander Schalie Party
Finds New Specimens Of Fish

bewly returned romsthe jungle-
bordered lakes and rivers of Central
America, Dr. Carl L. Hubbs of the
zoology department told yesterday
the story of the work of the Carnegie
Institute and University of Michigan
expedition to Guatemala, on which he
was accompanied by Dr. Henry Van-
der Schalie of the zoology museum.
The expedition, which left here
several months ago, encountered a
field, according to Dr. Hubbs, in
which no research had been done for
75 years. Partially as a consequence
of this, they encountered many new
specimens of fish and mollusks, some
of ordinary and some of bizarre char-
A great advance was made in the
study of the "Amazon" fish, in some
species of which the male is appar-
ently absent. Two distinctly new spe-
cies and one new hybrid were cat-
alogued by the expedition in this va-
riety of fish alone. Those which had
been found before were shown to be
hybrids, rather than pure species.
They were taken mainly from the
lake of Peten.
The difficulties of transporting
these fish back alive were told by Dr.
Hubbs. All kinds of unprecedented
delays were met with, and the ex-
tremely hot weather which was en-

countered constituted another barrier
in the way of successfully returning
the fish to Ann Arbor. Starting from
the expedition's base far up the Rio
Usumacinta with 21 specimens, Dr.
Hubbs came to the point of embarka-
tion with only three left. Ife was
fortunate enough in being able to
add 11 more there, but these all
died. Only the three finally survived
the rigors of the trip. The museum,
however, is already in possession of
nearly 40 which had been sent back
before the return of the expedition,
and as these have reproduced, almost
100 are now in the University's pos-
Many other fish were also cat-
alogued during the course of the work
of the expedition. Nearly half of
these in some places proved to be
previously undescribed, according to
Dr. Hubbs. When the nets which
were used for the purpose of obtain-
ing the fish were laid for the first
time in Lake Peten, 22 specimens
were obtained in the first two hours.
During the remainder of their three
week's stay there, only two more
were added to the list. Peculiarly
enough, because of the waters of the
lake being very high, and as the banks
were all flooded, the first seining was
done in the airplane field which was
covered with water at the time!

Knudsen Declares
'We Are Starting


TOLEDO, May 11-(AP)-Tempest-
uous Toledo today turned from the
role of economic warrior to that of
a peaceful Geneva to the automobile
The eyes of the Nation watched a
strike settlement conference which
was opened in The Commodore Per-
ry Hotel, with representatives of Gov-
ernment, Labor and Industry in at-
tendance. When the conference re-
cessed for luncheon, spokesman said
merely that the meeting was har-
monious and that progress was satis-
Two new factors were brought out
for discussion:
1. Industry asked union leaders to
show evidence of greater responsibili-
ty to keep the peace.
2. Labor demanded a blanket
agreement that ivill be applicable in
all plants of The General Motors
"We are starting from scratch,"
William S. Knudsen, executive ,vice-
president of General Motors, told
newspaper men when he arrived in
Labor Represented
Accompanying him were M. E.
Coyle, president of the Chevrolet Mo-
tor Co., and C. E. Wetherald, vice-
president in charge of manufacturing.
Labor was represented by a "united
front" established after a night of
bickering between the militant mem-
bers of the United Automobile Work-
ers Federal Labor Union, Chapter
18384, and officials of the American
Federation of Labor, with which they
are affiliated.
Union spokesmen included James
Roland, chairman of the Strike Com-
mittee which called a walk-out of
employees-in the Chevrolet transmis-
sion plant here April 23 and made
2,350 workers idle immediately. With-
in a week the dispute had caused a
score of General Motors plants to be
closed for lack of parts and had left
33,000 men idle in various parts of
the Nation.
Unionists Hold Meeting
Militant unionists made themselves
heard at a mass meeting on the eve
of the peace parley, recalling the riots
that rocked this city one year ago.
"Remember that 'Old 18384' has a
national reputation to uphold," re-
marked one of the 1,400 who attended
a meeting at Memorial Hall.
Francis J. Dillon, national organ-
izer of the Federation, attended the
massnmeeting as an observer. He
conferred first with the Executive
Committee of the Federal Labor
Union and then with the Strike Com-
mittee, headed by Roland.
In addition to Roland and Dillon,
Labor was represented at the peace
conference by T. N. Taylor, of Indian-
apolis, national organizer of the Fed-
eration, who is colloquially known in
Indiana as "Old T.N.T."; Ellsworth
Kramer, president of Local 18384, and
Fred Schwake, business agent of the
Coleman Claherty, another Federa-
tion organizer, came from Akron
with a pledge of financial support
from rubber workers to the hundreds
of pickets who marched around the
strikebound Chevrolet plant.

Fisher Pleads
For Moderate
Future Policy
Dr. Ernest M. Fisher, economic ad-
viser of the Federal Housing Admin-
istration closed the Seventh Annual
Alumni Conference of the School of
Business Administration last night at
a banquet held at the Union with an
address on the subject "Business and
the Government."
Referring to the doctrine of laissez
faire, he said, "Complete separation of
the functions of business and govern-
ment is impossibleand would consti-
tute the abnegation of government."
Dr. Fisher then described Commu-
nism as "the nearest approach to the
conduct of business by government."
Concerning these opposing systems,
he said, "The two extremes represent
chaos and complete regimentation."
According to Dr. Fisher, "the objec-
tive of governmental activity in con-

With 71; Malloy, Kokes
Split Points
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., May 11. - (Spe-
cial) --Michigan's golf team con-
quered a strong Illinois squad here
today over the Urbana Country Club
links, 18-6. in a bitterly contested
dual match. Even with Kocsis and
Fischer missing from the Wolverine
line-up, Michigan still led all the way.
Coach Trueblood's men were out in
front at the end of the morning
round, 8-1, although scoring was very
close in both best. ball foursomes.
Malloy and Seeley of Michigan
teamed together to defeat Kokes and
Barr of Illinois, 3-0, in the first four-
some, and Markham and Saunders,
Wolverine number two combination,
downed Hill and Aydelot, 2-1, in the
second. Al Saunders had the lowest
card of the day when he turned in
a 71. Woody Malloy had a 73, Dana
Seeley a 75, and Cal Markham an

Navy Hints At

Seaplane Arnada Engages
In Secret Maneuvers
West of Hawaii'
Report 450 Planes
Ready For Display
Absolute Censorship Hides
Activities Of Aircraft
HONOLULU, May 11.- (P) - Hints
of even more amazing aerial opera-
tions came from high naval sources
today while the Navy's great armada
of 46 seaplanes continued its unprece-
dented secret maneuvers somewhere
in the Pacific west of Hawaii.
Reports were that 450 aircraft
would take part, but amplification
was not forthcoming here, nor would
naval officials at Washington corn-
The aircraft are aboard surface
vessels of the fleet now maneuvering
under simulated war time conditions'
in a great triangular area in the Pa-
cific bounded by the Aleutian Islands
on the north, the western seaboard of
the United States on the east and
Hawaii on the south.
Sketchy preliminary announce-
ments concerning the maneuvers in-
dicated that planes aboard three huge
carriers would figure conspicuously
in the war games.
So effective, meanwhile, was a cen-
sorship clamped down upon the move-
ment of the forty-six-plane patrol
that Honolulu was without even a
hint as to its whereabouts, although
Navy officials said frankly that they
knew what the planes were doing.
It was pointed out that the aircraft
was of utmost importance to the pres-
ent activities of the fleet and that to
acquaint a mythical enemy with their
operations would destroy their effec-
tiveness. ,g
It was assumed that the flying
armada was carrying out its mission
without a hitch.
The planes soared away from Pearl
Harbor early Thursday, but whether
all had gone to Midway Island, 1,323
miles westward, as it was supposed
they would do, or whether some had
stopped by tiny coral atols en route
was unknown.
Officials tended to minimize the un-
usualness of the flight, explaining
that mass non-stop flights had been'
made to Midway several times before.

The Michigan Daily was accorded
a "Superior All-American Honor Rat-
ing" and was further designated as]
a "Pacemaker," among 214 college
newspapers judged this year by the
Associated Collegiate Press of the Na-
tional Scholastic Press Association, it
was announced yesterday by Fred L.
Kildow, director.
Only four other college papers be-
sides The Daily were awarded the
"Pacemaker" honor, and Mr. Kildow
wrote in a letter to the editors that
this designation is not just another]
rating but "It is our magna cum
laude -an additional honor."
All of the papers, which are annual-
ly rated by the Association, were
judged on news values and sources,
news writing and editing, headline,]
typography and makeup, and de-
partment pages and special features.

Out of a possible total score of 1,000,
The Daily was awarded 880 points,
The editorial columns and the
sport page were both given the max-
imum number of points, the former
50 and the latter 80, and the "sub-
jects and constructive purpose" of
the editorials were termed "excellent"
by the judges.
The highest score for a single de-
partment was achieved by the de-
partment pages and special features,
with a score of 210 out of a possible
Headlines, typography, and makeup
were awarded 225 points of a possible
250, news writing and editing was
given 235 out of a possible 280 points,
while of a possible 250 points, the
news values and sources of stories
in The Daily garnered 210 points.
This year marked the Fifteenth
All-American Newspaper Critical
Service conducted by the Associated1
Collegiate Press.
All newspapers entered in the rat-
ing were classified according to the
size of the college and the frequency,
of publication. The officials stated
that "a monthly newspaper in a col-
lege of 250 is in no sense in competi-
tion with a daily in a university with
an enrollment of 10,000, and an All-
American in the first group men-
tioned is probably not the equal of
an All-American in the latter group."
Health Board
Gives Approval
To Restaurants
Only One Out Of 74 Have
Yet To Meet Standards
Set By Department
Every restaurant inspected during
the last week by the City Health
Department was approved, Dr. Lloyd
R. Gates, deputy health officer, an-
nounced yesterday.
The umber of restaurants now ap-
proved totals 74, with the Campus
Dining Rooms, 611 Church St., the
only one inspected to date which is
not approved, Dr. Gates said. Two
restaurants approved in the past week
which are patronized to a great ex-
tent by students are the Pretzel Bell
and Joe's Snappy Service Lunch.
"Only two places among those in-
spected so far serve raw milk," Dr.
Gates said, "and they serve Grade
A raw which comes from an unim-
peachable source, though we hope
in time to have every restaurant in
the city serving pasteurized milk."
He said that the balance of the
restaurants will probably all be in-
spected next week, and he predicted
that some of them, left to the last,

"There can be no doubt," Dr. Gates
remarked, "that the present cam-
paign of the department has pro-
duced results. In many of the places
which we inspected last week there
was definite evidence that many
needed improvements had recently
been made, including redecorating

and painting either finished or well
started, and a definite effort has been

Dog Rescued; Now
Must Seek Master
In A Cold World
WANTED: One dog owner.
It all began last Sunday night when
a boy and a girl were going dancing.
They had just come out of the Michi-
gan Theater and noticed a small
black and white form huddled against
the front of one of the Liberty Street
stores. On investigation it proved to
be a familiar campus mongrel, victim
of a hit and run driver.
The girl was compassionate, the
boy tractable, so they hailed a taxi1
and took the wounded canine to Dr.1

treated for a fractured leg and severe
The dog is now well and able to be
up and around, but the catch is that
no one has shown up to claim him. If
the owner of a missing small black

them the sordid matter of a two dol-

Michigan Nine
Loses To Ohio
State, 4 To 3
Buckeyes Gain Eight Hitsj
Off Patchin As Michigan
Fails At Bat
Ohio State and Michigan succeed-
ed in virtually eliminating each other
from a chance for first place in the,
Big Ten baseball standings in a two-
game series completed yesterday at
Ferry Field. The Buckeyes came back
in the second games yesterday to eke
out a 4-to-3 win and finish off the,
season's series at two victories apiece.
Michigan had won Friday's contest,
6 to 4.
The defeat was the third confer-
ence loss for the Wolverines, all three
of which were dropped by the margin
of one run, and reduced Michigan to
a .500 average, as the Buckeyes ad-
vanced to a percentage of .625.
Gets Good Support
Art Patchin, who hurled for Mich-
igan, was given good support in the
field but little at the plate. Five hits
were all the Wolverine batters could
get off the combined offerings of Ron-
nie Peters and Bob Blue. None were
made off Peters in two and one-third
innings. The Buckeye ace left in the
third because of a trick pitching arm
which took yesterday .as occasion to
go back on him by becoming sore.
Coach Stahl sent in Blue, a reserve
hurler, who had little more on the
ball than the cover, but held the
Michigan batters in check, despite
seven passes.
Patchin went the full distance for
Michigan, allowed eight hits, struck
out a like number, and walked three.
But Patchin could not get rid of Al
Prosenjak at the right times, with
the result that the Buckeye slugger,
who batted fourth in a revamped bat-
ting order, lead the Buckeye attack,
getting a single and a triple in three
times at bat and scoring two runs, in
addition to driving in another.
Ohio Scores
Prosenjak lead off in the second,
with Ohio one run behind, and drew
the first of two passes which later
proved damaging to the Michigan
cause. McAfee struck out, but Hamil-
ton, ordinarily a weak hitter, but who
was a tower of strength in the series

here, singled into left and went to
second when Regeczi threw to third
in an attempt to catch Prosenjak.
Mosier then hit a bounder to third
and went out while the run scored.
Michigan got a cheap run in the
first when Rudness walked, stole sec-
ond, went to third on a pas% ball, and
scored on another pass ball, plus Pet-
ers' error: dropping Mosier's throw in
covering the plate as Rudneis slid in.
Ohio went into the lead in the
fourth and was never headed. Prosen-
jak began the rally with a single after

Wolverines Triumph Over
Buckeyes; Willis Ward
Not Entered
Records Broken In
Mile And Half-Mile
Winning Margin Provided
By Slams In Javelin,
Discus And Pole Vault
Jesse Owens and a band of keen-
ly-trained Ohio State trackmen al-
most toppled Michigan's powerful
team yesterday on Ferry Field, but
the Wolverines finally prevailed to
win, 69 to 57.
Willis Ward, whose duels with
Owens featured the meeting of the
two teams indoors, did not compete
because of an injured leg, and prob-
ably will not appear again until the
Conference meet here May 24 and 25,
his coach, Chuck Hoyt, announced.
Owens stole the whole show in one
of the best-contested dual meets ever
held on Ferry Field as he accounted-
for twenty points with four first
places, and his teammates added
three wins and one tie for first in
the 15 events. The Buckeye flash
triumphed in the 100-yard dash, 220-
yard dash, 220-yard low hurdles, and
broad jump, lying the Ferry Field
record in all but the broad jump.
Two Records Broken
Two Ferry Field records were brok-
en in the meet, and both by Buck-
eyes. Don Renda, running in superb
form, opened the meet by cracking
the mile record in besting Harvey
Smith of Michigan in 4:18.5, and
Charles Beetham ran away from a
fast field in the half-mile event to
win in 1:53.8.
Michigan's winning margin was
provided by slams in two field events,
the discus and javelin, and by an out-
standing victory of Dave Hunn in the
pole vault. Skip Etchells won th'e
discus and Bob Kositchek the javelin.
The other Wolverine firsts were
taken by Stan Birleson in the quarter,
Walter Stone in the two-mile, Bob
Osgood in the high hurdles, and by
Konrad Moisio, tying for first in
the high jump.
Renda, obviously in top condition,
pulled a surprise in the meet's first
event as he literally ran Harvey
Smith into the ground in a valiant
Ouel which took the two stride for
stride for fully 300 yards until the
Buckeye star finally broke away in
the last 60 yards to win by eight
feet. Smith also broke the old field
record of 4:19.8 when he was clocked
unofficially in 4:19.5.
Last Lap Decides Rae
C 1 a y t o n Brelsford, Michigan's
sophomore star, jockeyed with Smith
for the lead for two laps until Smith
asserted himself in the third. Ren-
da came even with Smith as they en-
tered the first turn of the last lap
and they paced side by side until
Renda broke away coming out of the
final curve. Brelsford fared badly
to take fourth as Bob Blickle of Ohio
ran third.
In the half Beetham broke into
Howard Davidson's lead on the last
turn to crack the old record of 1:54.2
as Frank Aikens made a valiant bid
to finish third ahead of Paul Gor-
man, who faded from the pace which
he had set for the early part of the
Owen's four wins stamped him as
one of the all-time stars as his ef-
fortless form took him ahead in the
three track events. In the short
dash, however, he was given a serious
challenge by Sam. Stoller, who led
to the 60-yard mark, although Owens
won going away. Owens was timed
in :09.6 and Stoller was caught unoffi-
cially in a "fast" :09.7. In the 220
Owens was never threatened as he
appeared to coast in ahead of Fred
Stiles, who beat Stoller for second,

in :20.9.
Shows Speed in Hurdles
Owens' low hurdles win was one
of the most impressive showings of
the meet as he appeared to bound
along with effortless form, paying no
attention to style but gaining rapidly
between flights to best Bob Osgood
and Moreau Hunt of Michigan in
that order. His time was :23.2. The
Buckeyes' "Ebony Antelope" failed to
threaten a record only in what is
considered his best event as he won
the broad jump at 24 feet, 5/8 inches.

Lawyers Stand On Legal Rights
To Challenge W.A.A. To Battle

Spring may bring relaxation for
the majority of the students on cam-
pus but not for a group of ambitious
young inmates of the Lawyer's Club.
They are just beginning'a new and
engrossing course of study and are
spending the long hours of spring
afternoons poring over a tome which
is far more involved than any of
their case books.
The new text is the book of rules
for field hockey as played by the
Woman's Athletic Association here,
and the study is preparation for the
battle of the century to be waged
on Saturday when the lawyers will
challenge the supremacy of the fair
sex in this line.
The lawyers have sent a challenge
to the members of the Women's
Athletic Association, worded care-
fully in the most accepted legal man-
ner, which states that:
Whereas, it has come to the at-
tention of certain members of the
Lawyer's Club, stern defenders of the

the incredible co-eds on the Mich-
igan campus have been particularly
active in this kind of trespassing,
Whereas, it is reliably reported that
these creatures are the very ones
whose bizarre contortions and hair-
pin bends are noted with such dis-
favor and despair in local ballrooms,
whenever the privilege to appear
thereon is conferred, and;
Whereas, it is deemed equitable and
necessary that these discovered mis-
creants make answer for such high
Now therefore, be it hereby enacted,

bers of the Lawyer's Club issue a
challenge to the Women's Athletic
Association to answer for these in-
famous doings and stand ready to
meet their challengers in athletic en-
counter, and;
Finally, since combat in any of
those sports peculiarly masculine in
origin would be unfair to the girls
