UNIVERSITY OF C H I C A G O
FIELD HOUSE, CHICAGO, Ill., March
13. - Michigan began the defense of
its Western Conference indoor track
title here tonight, placing two quali-
fiers in the finals of the quarter-mile
and half-mile runs.
Howard Davidson in the half and
Stan Birleson in the quarter were
the qualifiers as Ben Starr lost a
place in the half-mile finals by inches
when he lost his shoe.
Indiana, Iowa, and Northwestern
shared the lead in the qualifying with
Michigan, each putting two men in
the finals. The Hoosier finalists are
Duke Hobbs in the half and Malcolm
Hicks in the quarter.
Times in the half mile were rela-
tively slow, but two heat times in the
quarter were as fast as last year's
winning time of 50.5. Ray Ellinwood
of Chicago was the winner in the first
heat with a fast 50.1 with Birleson
an easy step behind him, and Sunny
Heg of Northwestern led his heat in
50.5.
Paul Gorman in the half and Steve
Mason in the quarter were other
Michigan entries who failed to qual-
ify, each placing third in his heat with
but two to qualify for the finals.
Bob Osgood, Michigan's ace hur-
dler who won the indoor high hurdles
title last year, was taking treatment
for an injured leg which has been
hampering his running all week.
Little change was reported. with the
possibility that the leg might be al
little worse. Osgood's injury would
not only cripple the Varsity's chances
in the hurdles but also in the mile
relay, which the Wolverines are fa-
vored to win in record time.
Track authorities have been re-
newing queries as to whether Don
Lash, Indiana's distance star, will
be able to run a really tough race in
the mile and still win the event which
the Hoosiers are counting on to de-
feat the Michigan team. Wolverine
supporters were encouraged as they
recalled that in last year's indoor mile
Lash, buffeted about at the start of a
rough mile, gave up after 150 yards.
Lash or one of his Indiana team-
mates, Tommy Deckard or Harry
Smith, is conceded the two-mile run.

Fifty students and faculty mem-
bers meeting under the sponsorship
of the University Peace Council last
night in Lane Hall appointed a com-
mittee of four to enlist the coopera-
tion of the University Administration
and campus organizations in the
Council's coming anti-war activity.
Wencel Neuman, '36, president of
the Union, Winifred Bell, '36, of the
League, Mennen Williams, '36L, and
Dr. Edward Blakeman, counselor in
religious education, compise thE
committee.
Marking the first action by th(
Council, the appointments concluded
the meeting the major portion of
which was given to the address by
George Edwards, President of the
American Student Union.
The necessity of anti-war activity
and organization instead of mere dis-
cussion of war was emphasized by Mr.
Edwards. He told of a conversatioi
with Senator Gerald,P. Nye in Wash-
ington last year during which Ny'
stated that "the most powerful and

Prof. Muyskens Is Jubilant
Over Outcome Of Party Fight

Says 'We've Got Abbott
On The Run'; Affidavits1
ComingInVoluntarily
By CLINTON B. CONGER
Prof. John H. Muyskens of the I,
speech department yesterday saw a
rosy horizon in the political battle he
and a group of unrevealed associates
are waging with the aim of ousting
Horatio J. Abbott, Democratic Na-
tional Committeeman, from controlf
of the party in Michigan.
Prominent party men had as yet
in no way denied or refuted the*
charges of disloyalty hurled at the
Ann Arbor political leader during the
past week, and more documentary
evidence against Abbott was being
ready for circulation.
'Abbott On Run'
"We've got Abbott on the run,,
Professor Muyskens exclaimed jubi-
lantly yesterday. "The dirt on his
activities is rapidly coming in, and
even his friends are deserting him.
"Why, they're offering affidavits'
against him of their own accord now.
Just the other day a young fellow
came up to me and wanted to give
me an affidavit to prove Abbott
worked against John Lehr (Demo-
cratic nominee for U. S. Representa-
tive) in 1934."
He cited as additional ammunition
which may soon be brought to bear
on Abbott a stenographic copy of
a speech Abbott made in Ludington
during the campaign in question, in
which he is said to have "run down
the nominees of his own party,"
specifically, the candidates for seats
in the House of Representatives.
Possible Nominees
He corrected an earlier announce-'
ment to the effect that Rep. Prentiss
Brown would be his group's nominee
for Abbott's national committeeman's
position in the fall, naming instead
George Schroeder of Detroit. Other
possible nominees are Sen. James
Couzens, (Rep., Mich.) for Senator if
he can be persuaded to switch to the
Democratic party; Frank Murphy,
now high commissioner to the Philip-
pines, for governor; and Leo J. No-
wicki, Wayne County drain com-
missioner, for lieutenant-governor.
Murphy, he said, had been ad-
vanced more or less "by popular ac-
claim." Nowicki and Schroeder have
sought the support of the "insur-
gent" Democrats, and have been
promised it.
Muyskens reiterated his previous
statement that he did not know how
the Abbott correspondence had been
obtained for circulation, but hinted
that Raymond F. Horton, '01E, Ypsi-
lanti engineer, might have sold it.

MADRID, March 13. - (P) - Mobs
of extremists roved the streets of the
Spanish capital tonight, setting fire
to churches and convents and shout-
ing "burn all the Pope's property."

Horton, a Democrat at the time of
the correspondence, in December,
1934, is now a Republican, according
to Muyskens.
Muyskens said that his offer to run
for Senatorhad at first been a joke
"Someone called me one night and
;told me Abbott was planning to run
for Senator, and Iasaid that if he did
I'd run against him and beat him in.
his own bailiwick. It is my sincere
intention in that eventuality just to
show that he can't even be nominat-
ed in this state."
The University faculty member re-,
fused to disclose names of Democrat-
ic leaders who may be backing his
group in its drive to clean out "po-
litical rottenness" in the party.
"We're saving the party, but I'll take
the knock," he said.
Questioned about the plans to run
Couzens on the Democratic ticket for
Senator in the November election, he
said that Couzens had been ap-
proached, on the subject of running
as a Democrat but declined to re-
veal the result. He intimated that
Couzens might be persuaded to switch

Council Votes
Appropriation
For City Relief
Emergency Act Prevents
Suffering Among Needy
Employables
A special session of the City Coun-
cil last night voted an appropriation
of $2,000 with which to pay the city's
share of relief for the last half of
March.
The session was called yesterday
noon by Prof Walter C. Sadler of the
engineering college, president, as an
emergency measure to prevent suf-
fering among welfare recipients. A
petition asking for council action
before Mach 14, the date upon which
County Welfare Commissioner Charles
Wagg declared some 200 employables
now on relief Would be cut from the
rolls, had been presented earlier to
President Sadler by the Ann Arbor
Citizen's Council.
Through approval of the $2,000 ap-
propriation by a 13 to 1 vote coun-
cilors estimated that the reduction in
the state's share of relief would be
taken care of for the remainder of
March. At the same time they em-
phasized in discussion that the ques-
tion of the relative sharesofrelief
funds to be provided by state and
county should again be taken up with
the state. .
Also passed at the meeting was a
resolution to fix the salary of a full-
time poor commissioner at $125 a
month for the balance of the fiscal
year-about three and a half months.
John Staffan, one of the two nomi-
nated by the council's budget com-
mittee, was elected to the post over
Chester Wood, the other nominee.

VARSITY POOL, MINNEAPOLIS,
March 13. - Michigan's varsity swim-
mers stood in danger of losing their
Big Ten title after the preliminaries
in the annual conference champion-
ships here tonight as they lagged be-
hind Iowa, 11 to 8, in men qualified
for the finals tomorrow.
Reserve seats for tomorrow night's
finals are already sold out and not
even standing room will be available
when the gun sounds for the-opening
event.
Jack Kasley with a new world's
record in the 200-yard breast-stroke
was the star performer in an evening
that saw four Big Ten records broken.
Kasley Smashes Record
Kasley's time of 2:23.9 smashed the
accepted world's mark of 2:26.5 made
by Cartonnet of France and broke
his own Conference record of 2:30.3.
Frank Barnard was the second Wol-
verine to better an existing standard,
lowering Tex Robertson's 400-yard
free-style record of 4:58.6 with an ef-
fort of 4:57.5.
Other record-breakers were Danny
Zehr of Northwestern in the 150-
yard back-stroke with 1:39 and N.
Lewis of Illinois in the 220-yard free-
style with 2:15.8.
Zehr's new mark erased Taylor
Drysdale's record of 1:39.3 and Lewis
bettered the 2:17.3 made by Johnny
Schmieler of Michigan.
Although he tightened up during
the first 50 yards, Sophomore Harry
Rieke gave indicationthat Zehr is
due for a harder battle tomorrow
night when he came within three
yards of the Northwestern star in
the back-stroke with a great come-
back.
Lewis A Surprise
The advent of Lewis to the front in
' the 220 was a surprise after Barnard
had done his heat in 2:18.4 in a dead-
heat with Jacobsmeyer of Iowa. Wil-
son of Chicago pushed Lewis to 2:16.
Capt. Frank Fehsenfeld topped the
divers with 108.18 points as Coach
Mann's entire quartet of spring-board
artists qualified. Der Johnston was
in third place behind Patterson of
Ohio State and Ned Diefendorf was
close behind in fourth. Christen of
Iowa was fifth and Ben Grady of
Michigan came back with 31 points in
his last three dives to qualify sixth
after being eleventh at the end of
seven dives.
With the failure of a single Mich-
igan man to qualify in the sprints,
on the basis of tonight's performances
I the Wolverines appeared to have a
bare margin of three or four points
over Iowa.

NEW YORK, March 13. - (P) -
The Realty Advisory Board, repre-
senting a large section of the owners'
front against the building service
strike, submitted a new offer of peace
late today, shortly after the Metro-
politan Building Owners' Association
signed arbitration agreements for
600 buildings.
Six thousand employes will return
to work tomorrow in the 600 build-
ings covered in the agreements, it
was announced.
The Realty Board proposal suggest-
ed a new division of strikers to be
taken back and replacements to be
retained, a proposition that James J.
Bambrick, strike leader, has said
cannot be arbitrated.
Spokesmen for the Advisory Board
said they believed an argreement
could be reached "if the Building
Service Employees Union will meet
us half way."
William D. Rawlins, executive sec-
retary of the Advisory Board, said
after a conference with Mayor F. H.
LaGuardia that while 15 per cent of
the replacement employes had been
promised permanent positions, 85
per cent "were men who would not be
satisfactory under ordinary circum-
stances."
Jacob E. Hurwitz, counsel for the
Metropolitan Association, announced
the agreement returning 6,000 men
to duty. Hurwitz said it was under-
stood that each worker would get his
job back and that "replacement
workers" who have taken their places
since the walkout began March 1
would be dismissed.
As this partial solution to the pro-
tracted walkout was announced,
Bambrick, local head of the Building
Service Employes' Union, asked Fath-
er Charles E. Coughlin, radio priest,
to publicize his charges that Federal

the organization's council announced
last night.
The Senate, organized by professors
and students in social science units
of the University, is for the purpose
of creating a medium for student ex-
pression, according to Edward Stone,
'36, president of the council. The in-
itial meeting of the Senate will be
held at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday.
The question to be debated by stu-

Senate plans, is to have one session

val to be determined by those students
present. Stone, in announcing the
meeting, declared that "it is impera-

PARIS, March 13. - (AP) - A Ger-
man financial official, a reliable
source said tonight, is in Paris seeking
to persuade Fraice to drop her de-
mand for sanctions against Germany
because of the remilitarization of the
Rhineland.
Emil Georg von* Stauss, third vice-
president of the Reichstag and direc-
tor of the Deutsche Bank, was sent
here as the confidential emissary of
Dr. Hjalmar Schacht, German min-
ister of economics and Reichsbank
president.
This source said the emissary
warned Georges Bonnet, French min-
ister of commerce, and leading Paris
bankers, that huge amounts of French
capital invested in Germany would
disappear if there were a financial
collapse of the Reich.
One source was quoted as saying
Dr. Schacht submitted a memoran-
dum to Adolf Hitler 15 days ago warn-
ing him against violating the Locarno
treaty and pointing out that ruinous
sanctions were likely to follow.
To 'Work On' Hitler
Schacht, von Stauss was said to
have told the French leader, promised
to "work on" Hitler to have him with-
draw the soldiers from the Rhine-
land if France dropped her demand
for sanctions.
The emissary was reported to have
said Schacht is convinced that sanc-
tions would lead to the economic and
political ruin of Nazi Germany."

Fresh Assault
On Sudan Rim
ASMARA, Eritrea, March 13.- (P)
- A new Italian army "of the west-
ern plains" was striking into Ethiopia
tonight along the Sudanese border.
Simultaneously, four full army
corps - comprising all the troops
on the northern front - were in full
forward motion southward.
The advance guard of the western
plains army had reached Alcadrai
and was moving toward Nogara, an
important junction of caravan trails
from the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan into
Ethiopia.
On the left flank of the western
plains army, the fourth army corps
was far beyond the Takkaze River
region near Uoldebba. The second
army corps was deep in the Tzel-
lemti area. The first and third army
corps were in the Ashangi section,
and their patrols had penetrated as
far as Fenaroa.
