Austria's New
Era Described
In Radio Talk
Prof. Schenk Sees Vienna
As Modern Utopia For
Describing Austria and its glamor-
ous capital, Vienna, Prof. Philip
Schenk of the English department
spoke over the University Broadcast-
ing Service yesterday.
Hailing the great new apartment
houses of the workers of Vienna
which were erected since the war,
Professor Schenk explained that they
replaced the crowded, unsanitary old
tenements when the laboring classes,
represented in the Socialist party,
gained control. "As regards housing,"
he declared, "Vienna indeed seemed a
Utopia, a modern paradise for the
working class, until that terrible day
a few years ago when the reactionary
party illegally seized control of the
state and actually turned cannon on
those houses."
Outlook Is Tragic
"The future outlook for the working
classes under the present rule of the
reactionaries is indeed a tragic one,"
he continued. The present sinister
and unscrupulous young reactionary
Prince Rudiger von Starhemberg, the
present dictator, has the support of
the propertied classes, the nobles of
the old regime, and of the Catholic
Church, Professor Schenk pointed
"The common people are divided
between the old Socialist party with
its program for social betterment, and
the Nazis, who by any and every
means seek union with Nazi Germany
under Hitler."
Describes Inner City
The speaker described the Inner
City of the beautiful and historic old
capital, speaking enthusiastically
about the churches, art galleries, the
opera house, the palace, monuments,
and buildings.
"The Viennese and the Austrians
in general are conspicuously neat,.
thrifty and industrious, withal a
most friendly, open-hearted and
easy-going folk," Professor Schenk
asserted. He added that underneath
the surface there are volcanic pas-
sions slumbering, quoting as an ex-
ample the battles between the rival
parties among college students.
The speaker emphasized that Aus-
tria has suffered a great deal from
the war. Not only was its territory
cut down to one-eighth its former size
he pointed out, but the people are
hedged in by customs restrictions and
national and racial jealousies.
Lewis Approves
Investigation Of
WPA Expenses
Senator Declares That All
Demands For Probe Are
To Be Satisfied
WASHINGTON, March 10-() -
Sen. Hamilton Lewis (Dem., Ill.)
chairman of the Senate Committee
on Expenditures in Executive Depart-
ments, today announced support of
a resolution by Sen. James J. Davis,
(Rep., Pa.), for an investigation of
WPA expenditures.
Lewis said he had every confidence
in the administration of Harry L.
Hopkins but that he thought the de-
mands for an investigation should be

"I am going to support the resolu-
tion of ,Senator Davis," Lewis said,
"and help to have it passed. As soon
as it has passed I will give a full
hearing before my committee."
The WPA controversy, touched off
by 30-year-old Rush D. Holt, (Dem.,
W. Va.), was revived yesterday in a
speech by Sen. Joseph T. Robinson,
(Dem., Ark.), defending WPA.
Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg (Rep.,
Mich.), replied that Robinson had
emphasized the "boondoggling" issue
and had neglected to discuss the ac-
cusations of political exploitation in
WPA employment.
Charges of "politics" have been
made against WPA by both Demo-
crats and Republicans in Illinois,
Michigan, West Virginia and Penn-
Hopkins admitted WPA employes in
Indiana county, Pa., had been solicit-
ed for campaign contributions from
the Democratic organization.
He reiterated "I'll protect mem-
bers of my organization from poli-
ticians' raids."

Hitler To Ask Endorsement Of
.Acts In March 29 Plebiscite

Dictator To Dissolve One
Party Reichstag And To
Hold Third 'Election'
(By The Associated Press)
Adolf Hitler, dissolving his one
party Reichstag and calling an "elec-
tion" of a new one for March 29, is
submitting his acts to the approval of
the German people for the third time.
First he asked them to endorse his
withdrawal of the reich from mem-
bership in the League of Nations.
That vote was taken November 12,
1933, and it gave him a "yes" verdict
of 93.5 per cent with 40,609,247 en-
dorsements, 2,101,000 voting against
him and 750,282 casting invalid bal-
Nine months later, on August 19,
1934, he asked the nation whether it
approved his action of earlier in the
month in assuming the post of chief
executive upon the death of President
Paul von Hindenburg.
Response Again Yes'
The response then was again vo-
ciferously "yes," although the Hitler
margin fell to 88.1 per cent. Endors-
ers totaled 38,362,763, in opposition
were 4,294,654 and 872,296 ballots
were thrown out.
In both instances it was reported
that the "invalid" ballots were mostly
blanks, deposited by voters who made
the gesture of going to the polls but
who were either too indolent or too
timid to register their sentiments.
In both these plebiscites the voting
was on a plain "yes" or "no" issue.
The coming election, to all intents
and purposes, will be similarly "for"
or "against" Hitler's dramatic denun-
ciation of the Locarno Pact and the
scrapping of the Versailles treaty pro-
visions forbidding military occupation
of the Rhineland.
Voting Age Lowered
What he and his lieutenants will
seek, probably will be another 90 per
cent endorsement. If it goes beyond
that figure they will be correspond-
ingly elated. If it falls below the 88
per cent of 1934, anti-Hit lerites in
other European countries will have a
talking point from which they may
derive somec comfort.
Right at the start of the new cam-
paign, the Nazis took steps to insure
a big total for Der Fuehrer. A gov-
ernment decree lowered the voting age
from 21 to 20 years, thus bringing
the ballots to youths in the new army
conscript system and to other scores
of thousands who are enrolled in the
nation's labor camps.
Another element of increase will be
noted in the Saar. That district was
outside the reich when the other votes
were taken, It voted on January 13,
1935, to rejoin Germany, rather than
Ride through the tunnel of
love with Eddie!
prns ;'

continue under administration of the
League of Nations or become part of
France. That ballot was 477.119 to
48,637 in Hitler's favor.
Thorough Campaigners
The campaign methods of the Nazi
organization are as spectacular and
thorough as those of American parties
in a hotly contested political cam-
paign. The German citizen is re-
minded constantly by newspapers,
posters, radio, flags, music, parades
and speeches of his duty to go to the
polls and there record his approval of
the leadership of the ex-Austrian
pre-war house painter over a nation
of 66.000,000.
Patriotism and the instinct of self-
preservation have been the targets
of the Nazi drives in previous cam-
paigns, and. the international furore
which has followed Hitler's announce-
ment of the Rhincland action, again
makes those emotions the outstand-
ing marks for the present drive for
Travel Bureau
Arraurwes Tour
For Students
Another student tour of Europe will
be conducted this year by the Bu-
reau of University Travel similar to
that organized by the bureau last
year. The program for 1936 includes
tours for those interested in particu-
lar parts of Europe besides the main
student tour for both men and wom-
The Student Tour will sail both
ways on the S. S. Aquitania and af-
ter a two weeks' stay in London will
travel through Holland and Belgium,
and up the Rhine to Switzerland,
and then stop two weeks in Paris. A
private car will carry the party
through the chateau district down to
Spain and then back to the French
Riviera and to Paris for the homeward
sailing from Cherbourg on August 12.
Prof. Rene Talamon, of the French
department will lead the tour
through France and Spain, and Prof.
Frederick Peterson will direct the
Scandinavian cruise. Prof. Arthur
W. Jones of the history department
of the University of New Hampshire
will lead the Student Tour.
