MOSCOW, April 1.-(Wednesday)
- Reports from Ulan Bator. Capital
of outer Mongolia, said early today
that heavy fighting between Mon-
golian defenders and Japanese-Man-
choukuoan invaders was continuing.
The invading troops, whose actions
caused a sharp protest to be delivered
to the Japanese Ambassador at Mos-

Mongolian territory, the reports de-
The Russian foreign office protest,
made by B. S. Stomaniakoff, vice-
commissar for foreign affairs, in-
formed the Japanese flatly the sit-
uation "Does not permit pacificaly
waiting for developments of events."
Stomaniakoff's declaration, made
to Japanese Ambassador Tamekichi
Ota, followed first reports of the in-
vasion which began yesterday when
a force of Japanese-Manchoukuoan
troops pushed into Mongolia after
capturing the border post of Adyk-
Stomaniakoff declared it was nec-
essary to take "energetic measures"
to put an immediate end to the at-
tacks by Japanese troops against
Mongolia. He said "serious respon-
sibility" would fall on the Japanese
government in case the actions of its
"dependent organization" might lead'
to the extension of conflicts in Mon-
goian. territory.
T h e Japanese - Manchoukuoan
forces are supported by an artillery'
battery, tanks, armored cars and air-
planes, the dispatches asserted.
The first attack was said to have
been launched against the border
post of Adykodolon. It was occupied
and the invaders proceeded on
against Tamsyk-Bulak, which is
about 30 miles inside Mongolian ter-
ritory, the Soviet accounts continued.
The attackers were said to have
met strong resistance at Tamsyk-Bu-
lak and to have been pushed back be-
yond Adykdolon. There they received
reinforcements and resumed the of-
Late tonight it was said fighting is
still going on.
TOKYO, April 1.-(Wednesday)--
(A-The Japanese foreign office
said today it lacked information on
reports of fighting yesterday on the
Manchoukuoan-Mongolian border.
An authoritative source close to the
army pointed out that a press ban
prohibits publication of details of the
border situation except official Jap-
anese-Manchoukuoan communiques.
Recent indications, however, were
that Japanese forces in Northwest
Manchoukuo have been preparing for
action of some kind.

Eiji Amau, spokesman for the Jap-
anese foreign office, said today the

reported invasion of Outer Mongolia
by Japanese-Manchoukuoan troops
was impossible without orders from
the highest quarters in Tokyo except
for ''special reasons."

On Philosophy
To BeApril 2
Dr. Rudolf Carnap, professor of
philosophy at the University of
Prague, will speak on "Philosophy
and Logical Analysis" at 4:15 p.m.
tomorrow in the Natural Science Au-
ditorium. The talk is one in the
University lecture series.
Professor Carnap, who is a visiting

this year, is a leading member of the

On April 1, 1916 - 20 years ago
today - James Burrill Angell, a
former Michigan President, and
one of the outstanding educators
cf the past century, passed away.
With his death came the conclu-
sion of a career almost without
parallel from the standpoint of
lngevity and of diversified service
to mankind.
He was inaugurated as Presi-
dent of the University June 28,
1871. From that time until his re-
tirement 38 years later, he devoted
the major part of his activities to
furthering the interests of Mich-
igan.. During this period - the
most crucial in the growth of the
iriititutcn --the University d-
veloped from a state of compara-
tive obscurity into the position
which it holds today as one of the
nation's major institutions of
learning. This progress was large-
ly due to the inspired leadership
of President Angell.
On this anniversary of his death,
Michigan honors the man whose
career forms such an integral part
of her history. There can Le no
other feeling than one of rever-
ence in contemplating a life thus
spent in promoting the highest
aims and ideals of our civilization.
Spring Parley
To Get Campus
Opinion Today
General Topic For Parley
Will Be Determined By
Committee At League E
Students from all organizations on
the campus will meet at 7:30 p.m.
today in the Grand Rapids Room of
the League to work out plans for the
1936 Spring Parley.
The group, the General Committee
of the Parley, will have as the basis
for its actions work completed by the
expanded continuations committee,
Irving Levitt, '36, executive chair-
man, said. Acting on the smaller
committee's recommendations, the
General Committee will decide on a
general topic for the Parley, draw
up sub-topics and name a general
Parley chairman, Levitt said.
Tentatively, he explained, the ex-
panded continuations committee has
agreed that the topic shall be "Our
Tomoriow-What Shall We Make of
It?" Under this genieral heading,
he said, the smaller committee has
outlined, not in the exact wording,
these sub-topics: government and ec-
onomic system, family and sex, peace,
education and religion.
The General Committee tonight
will decide upon actual titles, work
out an agenda for the Parley and
probably vote to back the expanded
continuations committee in the date
it has tentatively set for the Par-
ley-the week-end of April 25-ac-
cording to Levitt.

Carillon Model, Dancing
Entertain Visitors
More than 700 students, alumni and
faculty thronged the Union last night
to celebrate "University Night," the

annual spring open house, which fea-
tured many exhibits, demonstrations
and certain other special attractions.
Four students from the department
of physical education opened the pro-
gram with a tumbling exhibition. A
faculty-Union team bowling contest
and billiard matches closely followed
the women's swimming and diving in
the pool.
Several displays were featured in
the North Lounge. The State High-
way department sponsored one exhibit
on highway construction and main-
tenance, and one of the bill boards
displayed the ballots collected by
Prof. James K. Pollock of the polit-
ical science department. The collec-
tion included ballots from many parts
of the world, and some from Ger-
many, used during the Hitler elections
and plebiscites.
Bob Steinle and his regular Union
band played before a huge crowd
which jammed the ballroom and at 9
p.m. a floor show was sponsored.

Wily Westerners
Prove Too Cagey
For 'Coy' Raccoon
Stan See, '37, and Duke Watson,
'37, captured a raccoon for the Uni-
versity yesterday afternoon, but it
took a lot of perseverance to do it.
At about 1:30 p.m. members of the
Sigma Phi fraternity noticed the wee
coy beastie in a tree in front of
the house, and See climbed up to cap-
ture it. Shortly afterwards, the rac-
coon escaped from its well-wishers
and climbed a second tree, this time
wisely picking one that was unclimb-
But not to be outdone, See, who
hails from the wild and wooly West
(Bay City) climbed a nearby tree and
from that after several attempts man-
aged to lasso the racoon. After about
15 minutes of tug-of-war, the fugitive
was torn from his second refuge, and
led around on the improvised leash.
Like a G. A. Henty hero, the animal
somehow shook off the fetters for a
third time, and took shelter in a third
tree. At this point, Watson, a stu-
dent in the School of Forestry and
Conservation, took charge of proceed-
ings, and climbed the raccoon's third
line of defense to prune the branch
on which he was sitting, first making
sure that Watson was between the,
tree and the saw.
The raccoon dropped, not to the
ground but to a lower branch, and
when Watson pruned that one, the
raacoon, deciding he had had enough
for one day, dropped to the ground'
and sprinted through the front door
and into the Sigma Phi house, wheret
he was finally captured for good.

The emphasis placed upon a train-
ing in business administration was
demonstrated today by Prof. R. G.
Rodkey of the School of Business Ad-

every member of the school last year
found more than a half a dozen jobsi
awaiting him after graduation. Prof.
Rodkey spoke in the vocational series

dergraduate students by the Literary
The great corporations, he said,
send a man to the school every year
in the spring to interview prospective
candidates for positions, and every
member of the senior class is given
an opportunity to find work which
is in harmony with his training.
Prof. Rodkey pointed out that with
the growth of large corporations, the
public welfare is in large part de-
pendent on the manner in which
business enterprise functions, and
consequently, there has been a great
demand for well-trained business ex-
perts. It is this fact, he said, which
has led to the growth of business ad-
ministration schools in large univer-
sities. The first of these schools was
the Wharton School of Finance at
1 the University of Pennsylvania. A
number of other universities folowed
the Wharton method, which consist-
ed of three years of undergraduate
training, and two years in the School
of Finance. However, he said, the
school here follows the principle of
the Tuck School at Dartmouth, which
requires an AB degree for admit-
tance. This system of admission has
also been followed at Harvard and

In Memory Of Attaches
To Mercer Court
Group Ponders 12
Hours On Evidence
Examination Of Wendel's
Repudiated Confession
To Be Resumed
TRENTON, N. J., March 31.-(P)-
The Mercer county grand jury
struggled through the night to solve
a perplexing phase of the Lindbergh
case tonight after probably setting a
precedent in halting the scheduled
execution of Bruno Richard Haupt-
The grand jury had considered the
case of Paul Wendel, who "confessed"
the Lindbergh kidnaping only to
repudiate the statement, for 12 hours.
Acting on a rarely used preroga-
tive, the jurors asked Prosecutor Er-
win E. Marshall to leave the room
as they sifted through the circum-
stances that led County-Detective
Chief James S. Kirkham to file a
murder charge against Paul H. Wen-
del, former Trenton attorney, in the
Lindbergh Baby Death.
At midnight there was no indica-
tion of what evidence, aside from
Wendel's repudiated "confession," was
before the grand jury. Court attaches
said the jurors already had brokenI
all county records for the duration'
of a single session.

Townsend Plan
Tax Hearings
Cause Changes
Startling Disclosures Are
Hinted After Complete
WASHINGTON, March 31.-(P)-
The capital centered its attention to-
day on an uproarious tax hearing and
dissension in the ranks of Townsend-
ites. '
Complete reorganization of the dis-
sension-shaken high command of the
Townsend Old Age Pension organiza-
tion was announced today on the eve
of resumption of a congressional in-
vestigation of it.
Disclosures of a "startling nature"
at tomorrow's hearing were hinted by
committee members after a closed
meeting of ,the House investigating
group. Members indicated they would
go deeply into the circumstances of
the reorganization.
In a statement, Dr. F. E. Townsend,
co-founder, announced appointment
of Gomer Smith, of Oklahoma City,
as vice president of the Old Age Re-
volvihg Pension, Ltd., and Gilmour
Young, of San Francisco, to succeed
Robert E. Clements, who resigned as
national secretary after differences
with the elderly California doctor.

Bruno Saved From Chair
As Executioner Waits In
Death Chamber
Jury's Delay Plea
Is Unprecedented
News Of Reprieve Throws
Wife Into Hysterics;
Hauptmann Quiet
TRENTON, N. J., March 31.- (/P)
-Bruno Richard Hauptmann was
saved dramatically from the electric
chair again tonight - at least for 48
hours - even as the executioner wait-
ed for him to enter the death cham-
The hour of death was at hand.
Hauptmann had written a farewell
letter to Gov. Harold G. Hoffman, pro-
testing anew that he was innocent
of the Lindbergh baby murder.
Then the Mercer County (Tren-
ton) grand jury took the perhaps un-
precedented action of asking that his
life be spared.
Col. Mark O. Kimberling, prison
authority, complied with the request
of delaying the execution for 48 hours.
He could, on his own authority, have
postponed it until Saturday night, but
not beyond that.
The delay was announced by Col.
Kimberling at 8:05 p.m. Hauptmann's
execution had been set for 8 o'clock.
The warden later said :
"I am staying the execution at least
48 hours. It may be Thursday or
Friday. I am making a further
statement tomorrow."
He added that "I made the state-
ment and assume all responsibility."
Executions in New Jersey are us-
ually on Tuesdays or Fridays.
The request was made, Allyne Free-
man, foreman of the jury explained,
because it was investigating the re-
pudiated confession of the Lindbergh
kidnap-slaying, made by a disbarred
Trenton lawyer, Paul H. Wendel.
Freeman said there were still some
"interesting new angles in the case"
worthy of inquiry.
The Wendel "confession" and the
circumstances which led Wendel to
become a prisoner, charged with the
murder of the Lindbergh baby, had
earlier in the day been discredited
by Supreme Court Justice Thomas
W. Trenchard, Hauptmann trial jur-
In rejecting an application for a
judicial stay of execution, he called
the Wendel statement "incredible and
out of harmony with the known facts
in the case."
