Illinois Hunger
Marchers Come
To Sprinodfield
Camp Set Up In Capitol
As Fifth Relief Bill Vote
SPRINGFIELD, Ill., May 20-W)-
Hunger marchers opened headquar-
ters and welcomed their first contin-
gents tonight as the legislature neared
its fifth, and perhaps decisive, vote on
the bitterly fought relief measure.
Leaders of the Illinois Workers Alli-
ance, organization of the unemployed,
said this trek to the capital would be
their largest and last - that the
marchers would establish a peyma-
nent camp and stay in Springfield
until funds again were provided for
the state's 1,200,000 relief clients.
As the first marchers trickled in,
Gov. Henry Horner, confident his
broadcast Sunday night had started a;
backfire behind Republican opposi-
tion to their three-cent sales tax pro-
posal, predicted the 102 votes neces-
sary for its emergency enactment
would be delivered tomorrow.
Thousands Join 'Foodless'
Over the state, the thousands who
went "foodless" yesterday were joined
by additional thousands today. Gov.
Horner estimated that the number

until the legislature acts" would be
In Chicago bare necessities were
provided about 10,000 of the neediest
by diverting funds set aside to meet
unpaid obligations.
Rent on relief stations, office sup-
plies and medical attention were sac-
rificed to stave off actual starvation.
The county coinmissioners met in
special session but took no action
pending tomorrow's legislative vote.
Clayton Smith, president of the
board, said he was certain that, if
the sales tax increase could not be
passed on an emergency basis, it
would be adopted, effective July 1,
and Washington w o u 1 d advance
money to ease the situation.
Transient Cases Dwindle
There were a few pleasant surprises
as well as drab incidents in the gen-
eral relief picture. A few got work,
the transient shelters, ordered to close
as supplies were consumed, found
their clients numbered only one-third

of last week's figure, and many local
authorities volunteered to assume the
load temporarily.

EVANSTON, Ill., May 20.-- (P) -
There wasn't much hope left for the
rest of the field in the annual Big
Ten golf championships tonight after
Michigan's quartette of shooting
stars, led by Johnny Fischer and
Charlie Kocsis, stopped firing at par
at the Kildeer Country Club.
There were 36 of the 72 holes left
to play -and everything can hap-
pen in golf - but the only question
appeared to be whether Kocsis or
Fischer, who tied each other today by-
trimming par by one shot for 139,
would be crowned 1935 Conference
Given a wide advantage by the
two stars, Michigan took a 27-stroke
lead in its campaign to retain the
team title, landing all four men in the
first five leaders.
Northwestern Is Second
The Wolverines posted a total of1
575 or 15 over par for 144 holes1
shot by the team as against 602 by
Northwestern, the runner-up. Illi-
nois had 624 to rank third. The
other teams were fairly well bunched.
They were Ohio State 630, Minne-
sota 631. Iowa 633, Wisconsin 636,l
Indiana 642, Chicago 655, and Pur-
due 662.t
Nine shots behind Kocsis and
Fischer in the individual champion-
ship fight were Allen Saunders, an-1
other Wolverine and Bob Brown,f
Northwestern, who had 148. Wood-t
row Malloy, the fourth member of the
Wolverine quartette, ranked next with
149. The rest of the scores rangedE
from 150 by Tom Saielli, Northwest-
ern to 174 by Richard Ely of Chi-
Kocsis Stars
Kocsis, who won the Big Ten crown1
last year while Fischer was cam-l
paigning with the American Walker
Cup team in England, made superb
finishes on the back nine twice todaya
to finish all square with his tall team-
In the morning, Charlie took 38
blows on the out nine, only to rush
back with a 32 for a par 70. In the
afternoon he needed 37 out but came1
back with another 32 for a 69. His
best hole was the fourteenth in the1
morning round where he put a great
wood shot together with a brilliant
putt for an eagle three.
Fischer, off to a one-stroke lead in
the morning with rounds of 33-36-69,
slumped to a 37 'on the front nine
in the afternoon but found the range
with a 33 on the way back for his 70.
Johnny was shooting for birdies from
five and six feet on almost every
hole but could not drop them in.
Saunders suffered the big slump
of the leaders, falling to a 78 in the
afternoon after shooting par 70 in the

a picnic with a Smith college girl and
thought the blanket might come in
handy. The police said he further
told them that in his part of the coun-
try the loss of articles was figured
into room charges.
When the question of bail arose he
recalled his father's association with
former President Coolidge and sug-
gested that his widow, Mrs. Grace
Coolidge, go surety for him. She was
not approached, however, for a fellow
student provided bail. Babcock went
on his picnic without the blanket.
Coughlin Calls
Witnesses To
Plans To Present Case Of
Union Of Social Justice
Before Senate
DETROIT, May 20 - )(A)- The Rev.
Charles E. Coughlin marshalled wit-
nesses today to present the case of his
National Union for Social Justice at a
Senate hearing on the Nye-Sweeney
banking bill, which would nationalize
the Federal Reserve system.
Fr. Coughlin said in a radio address
last night that the national union,
"encouraged" by the testimony of
Secretary of the Treasury Henry J.
Morgenthau, Jr., before the Senate
banking and currency committee
last week, had applied for an imme-
diate hearing on the measure before
that group.
He hailed Morgenthau as the first
Federal official "to propose the gov-
ernment ownership of the central
banking system," and added theope
that the treasury department head
"expressed the adopted views of the
entire administration."
Fr. Coughlin reiterated his de-
fense of the Patman bonus bill on
what appeared to be the eve of itsI
veto by the President. But regard-
less of the White House's course, the
priest said, "the people have decided"
on the measure, which he termed "a
real test" of the union's monetary
He termed "insignificant," how-,
ever, the accomplishments of his or-
ganization in the World Court and
bonus disputes "compared to what
you are about to do in supporting
the Nye-Sweeney bill, without which
the sane distribution of wealth would
be impeded."
Fr. Coughlin parried the epithet,
"printing press money," with the
statement that the union advocates
only currency solidly backed by gold
or silver in the treasury, in contrast
with "the penmanship, or checkbook
money of the bankers."

BERLIN, May 20-(IP)-Adolf Hit-
ler spent most of the day writing the'
speech which he will make to the
Reichstag tomorrow night to tell the
world what the Nazi regime has to
offer to alleviate European tension.
Der Fuehrer was buoyed by dem-
onstrations in his honor at the open-
ing at Frankfurt-on-the-Main yester-
day of the Reich's first road exclu-
sively for automobiles.
He will face one of his most critical
moments tomorrow. T h e largest
Reichstag in history, although one of
the most impotent, which now has
669 members, including eight newly
appointed deputies from the Saar, was
chosen as the forum for Hitler's views.

Army Cut Plea Revealed
Well-informed Wilhelmstrasse cir-
cles said London had advised Hitler
he should content himself with an
army of about 350,000 men, thereby
allaying the fears of German aggres-
siveness, and join the revised Eastern
Security Pact.
Hitler is said to feel, however, that
the Reich's entrance into an Eastern
pact is impossible since France, Rus-
sia and Czechoslovakia have entered
a military alliance and Lithuania has
been friendly to Soviet Russia.

Local Budget
Appropriation Decreased
$20,000 After Lengthy]
Dis cussi on
A reduction of nearly $20,000 in
the annual municipal budget of the,
city of Ann Arbor was effected last
night when the Common Council of
the city passed, after considerable
discussion, the budget figures as orig-
inally prepared by the committee o
the council and which were recom-
mended last week by the council it-
self acting as a committee of the
The decision was not at all unani-
mous, but a majority of the aldermer
preferred the final figure of $463,-
216.41 without change. The tota'
expenditure last year was $482,604.98
One of the items ovAr which contro
versy was raised was the item pro-
viding for two additional officers foi
the police department in order tc
maintain a more efficient scout cai
surveillance. The value of this typc
of protection for the residential sec-
tions of the town was questioned buf
the measure was finally passed.
No changes were made during th(
course of the consideration of the
figure from the first draft as sub-
mitted by the budget committee. Th'
material decrease in the total thi
year is a result of the decreases ir
the estimates of expenditures sub-
mitted by several of the departmen
of the city. Only three of the de-
partments had prepared sums in ex-
cess of last year's amounts, and these
in total amounted to less than the de-
creases effected by the others.
The first and second readings of <
new ordinance to increase the penalt3
for drunk and disorderly conduc
from $50 to $100 or 90 days in jail
or both, were also passed at the meet-
ing. A third reading will be necessar3
before the measure goes into effect
The measure was taken up after City
Attorney William A. Laird described a
"man from Chelsea" who came over
every few days to get drunk and could
only be penalized $50.

Philosophy Of Acting Evolved
By Star Of 'Laburnum Grove'

Although Edmund Gwenn, star of
the current dramatic Season offering,
"Laburnum Grove," which opened last
night at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theater, became an actor only be-
cause his parents wouldn't let him be
a sailor, now he takes his profession
so seriously that he has evolved a
philosophy of acting.
"A good actor must have perfecti
ease and polish which he can obtain
only from years of experience, and
he must be able to play his roles so
naturally that he can believe he is not
acting the part, but living it," he ex-
plained. "If he can accomplish this,
he can keep the part fresh and natur-
al, and it does not suffer from artifi-
cial acting." He doesn't believe in
using make-up because he thinks it
destroys the illusion of reality, and he
never uses it himself.
Gwenn does not merely theorize
