MOSCOW, March 28. - (P) - A
demand for immediate action to put
an end to frontier raids was contained
in a note from the government of
Outer Mongolia to the Manchoukuoan
administration made public here to-
The official Russian press intimat-
ed a belief that the Japanese were in-

an independent state by Japan, and
the Russian-advised Republic of Out-

The Mongolian note was sent to

Role Of Student
In Wmar Subject
Of Next Senate
The second session of the Student
Senate will convene at 7:45 p.m.
Thursday to discuss "What Can the
Student Do to Keep the Country out
of War?"
Three faculty men will address
those present, presenting their opin-
ions for 10 minutes each on neutrali-
ty, the League of Nations and in-
creased armaments. Then the topic
will be thrown open to students to
speak on from the floor.
The Student Senate, planned to
promote open discussion, is a proj-
ect of students and professors in the
social science units of the University.
The initial meeting was held a week
ago Tuesday when students argued as
to whether they should support the
old parties in 1936. At that time, al-
though all sentiments were well rep-
resented, advocates of the New Deal
and of formation of a Farmer-Labor
party carried off the evening.

As a result of the literary society's'
"meddling" in engineering affairs, it
was explained, the debate will center
about the questi3n "Resolved: That
the engineering college extend its cur-
riculum to five years to include more
cultural subjects," with Adelphi tak-
ing the affirmative and Sigma Rho
Tau the negative.
The members of the Adelphi so-

Dickinson Warns cooperatives
Against 'StubbingTheir Toes'

Administrative Difficulties
Of Plan Are Emphasized
By Economics Professor
Not "particularly enthusiastic"
over the American cooperative move-
ment, and inclined to warn its pro-
ponents of the danger of "stubbing
their toes" before they get very far
along, Prof. Z. Clark Dickinson of
the economics department analyzed
practical aspects of the movement
yesterday in an interview.
In contrast to the socio-religious
zeal of Toyohiko Kagawa, whose lec-
tures here last week on the coopera-
tive movement created wide-spread
campus interest, Professor Dickinson
was inclined to emphasize the admin-
istrative difficulties commonly pre-
senting themselves to consumer co-
operatives, and to point out the fac-
tual differences underlying the slug-
gishness of the movement in this
country as compared with those in
European and Asiatic nations.
Under the so-called "Rochdale"
principles, referring to the origin of
the movement among textile workers
in Rochdale, England, Professor
Dickinson explained the essential
nature of cooperatives as enterprises
which distribute profits to their pa-
trons rather than their owners.
Investors receive a fixed amount,
all have but one vote, ordinary retail
prices are charged and profits are
distributed to members on the basis
of the amounts they have purchased.
These cooperatives, he continued,
are faced with three major problems,
none of which is easily resolved. The
first is the necessity of keeping their
New Geography
Camp Is Set Up
In NewEngland
The Summer Session geography de-
partment has announced it will con-
duct a camp this summer in New
England in the porthern part of the
Connecticut valley and at Green Bay,
This will be the first time that the
camp will be held in New England.
The camp formerly held in Kentucky
by the geography department will not
be held this year, it was also an-
nounced. .{
The camp in northern Michigan
under the direction of Prof. Kenneth,
C. McMurray, chairman of the geo-
graphy department, will be the oly
field work sponsored by the geography;
department outside of Ann Arbor.
The students desiring to take the
field work in New England will spend
the first three or four weeks at Green
Bay and then proceed to the base
in New England.
The camp in New England will be
under the direction of Prof. Stanley
D. Dodge, of the geography depart-
ment. He explained that the camp
will be conducted primarily for the
purpose of discovering the effects of
the utilization of the land.
Flood Waters
Reach Indiana
CINCINNATI, March 28. - (P) -
The Ohio River, receding from above
flood stage levels in the Upper Valley,
pushed to higher stages below Cin-
cinnati tonight and inundated addi-
tional thousands of acres of lowland
sections in Kentucky and Indiana.
Serious flood conditions threatened
in Western Kentucky where the Ken-
tucky River and other Lower Valley
tributaries burst their banks.
Louisville feared a major flood

should additional rains add to the
water that kept the river at or above
flood stage throughout its 981-mile
length from Pittsburgh to Cairo.
Meteorologist W. C. Devereaux said
only light and scattered showers with
colder weather, were in prospect and
that the rain would not affect the
The river stood stationary slightly
above 60 feet here after reaching a
crest of 60.6, and was similarly eight
feet above flood stage as far as Evans-
ville, Ind.
May Shift Flogging
Trial From Tampa
TAMPA, Fla., March 28. - (1P) - A
jury still not seated with the venire

membership through their "patron-
age dividends." A high degree of
managerial efficiency is required to
make such savings over and above
the highly-efficient operation of pri-
vate large-scale retailers, and The
length of time required for these
dividends to accrue to the consumer
often discourages active interest.
The other problems are ones of ad-
ministration, he said. In rural com-
munities the cooperatives, by giving
everyone an equal vote, create a sit-
uation in which "everybody's business
is nobody's business"; and when or-
ganized on a wider scale, necessitat-

TRENTON, N. J., March 28. - ()
- A purported "confession" of the
Lindbergh baby kidnaping by a for-
mer Trenton man was disclosed to-
night to have been used by Governor
Harold G. Hoffman as a basis for
calling the Court of Pardons to meet
Monday on Bruno Richard Haupt-
inann's second clemency plea.
The Governor was reported to have
mailed to all members of the Pardons
Court copies of a statement made,
by the man to Ellis H. Parker, chief
of Burlington County detectives, who
has insisted that Hauptmann is in-
nocent of the kidnap-murder of the;
Lindbergh child.
Hauptmann is scheduled to die for
the crime Tuesday night.
At the same time this becameh
known, prosecution officials met in a
hotel here to outline their plans to
meet this new attack upon the case
against Hauptmann.
There was a tendency on the partf
of those opposed to Governor Hoff-f
man's activities in Hauptmann's be-'
half to discount the value of the
"confession," which had been rumored
in Trenton for several days.
Attorney-General David T .Wilentz
chief prosecutor of Hauptmann, has'
been furnished a copy of the state-
ment which was said to have been un-
signed and not in affidavit form but
consisted of questions by Parker and1
answers by the man.
Wilentz, Anthony M. Hauck, Jr.,
Hunterdon County prosecutor, Col.
H. Norman Schwarzkopf, head of
the State Police and Capt. John J.
Lamb of the State Police, met in the
hotel session to consider a course of
A high prosecution source said that
the man was in custody "somewhere
in New Jersey.',
State troopers were ordered to begin
an intensive investigation into all
angles of the man's story.
This development was given added
significance by the fact that prosecu-
tion officials agreed the Court of
Pardons itself could grant a reprieve
to Hauptmann - something which it
has never done in any other case.

and other persons interested or expert
in effective enforcement.
In the three-year history of the
Institute here, emphasis in the first
year was devoted to medical science
as applied to crime detection and last
year the group pair particular atten-

Taxation Ford's
Topic In Union
Lecture Today
"Federal Taxation" will be the top-
ic of the fifth lecture in the Sunday
series sponsored by the Union to be
given by Prof. Robert S. Ford of the
economics department at 4:15 p.m.
today in the Union Ballroom.
Professor Ford will give a valua-
tion of the new tax proposals which
are being considered by Congress at
the present time with especial em-
phasis upon the much talked about
corporation surplus tax provision.
As Union officials pointed out, Pro-
fessor Ford is "very well qualified to
speak on the subject of taxation."
His experience in this field, both
practical and theoretical, has been
very wide. A few years ago Professor
Ford was a research investigator for
the New York State Tax Commis-
sion and since 1922, when he was
first instructor at Columbia Universi-
ty, Professor Ford has been teaching.
In 1933 the Department of Agricul-
ture appointed Professor Ford to
serve as an agricultural economist,
and he served in this position until

as about the practical experience of
faculty men in their special fields of
interest. The speech by Professor
Ford will be the fifth in the series,
which will be continued through the
remainder of the semester.

NEW HAVEN, Conn., March 28.-
() -Paced by a quartet of divers who
gathered 15 points in two events, and
by Jack Kasley, brilliant breast-stroke
performer, the University of Michigan
won its seventh title in ten years in
the National Collegiate swimming
meet, concluded here tonight.
The Wolverines sdored 30 points,
followed by Iowa with 21 and Yale
with 17.
Michigan won four titles, by Kasley
in the 200-yard breast-stroke, by the
medley relay team, by Der Johnston
in the low board diving and by Cap-
tain Frank Fehsenfeld in the high
board diving.
Jack Medica, a human nautical au-
tomaton from the University of Wash-
ington, splashed his way to victory
in the 440-yard free style race to suc-
cessfully defend the third of his na-
tional titles.
The dark-haired Seattle speedster
captured the 1500 meter and 220 yard
free-style events yesterday. By win-
ning tonight, he became a triple N.C.-
A.A. champion for the third time in
as many years.
A short time before this event, Jack
Kasley, Michigan's great star, turned
in a 2:25 for the 200-yard breast-'
stroke which bettered the existing'
world's record of 2:25.2 made by J.
Cartonnnet of France last May.
The performance went by unno-
ticed, however, by all except a few
being dimmed by the 2:22.5 for the
same distance which the husky Wol-
verine speedster turned in during his
afternoon heat. Kasley used the but-
terfly stroke virtually all of the dis-
tance to defend his title.

have felt slightly embarassed if they
had seen the journalism department's
concept of "The Flea Press" at the
Scoop Dance last night in Palmer
Field House.
The editor of the Flea Press was
named Yapp, and in a manner strong-
ly suggesting a column entitled
"Good Morning," he started out by
denouncing "some fool college pro-t
fessors who seem to think freedom of
press means freedom of speech. When
I say free press," continued Mr. Yapp,

who imagined himself similar to Na-
