AAA Criticism
Is Continued
Michigan Senator Seeking
Publication Of All Big
Benefit Payments
$58,00) Is .eceived
By Monlana Farmer
Land Rented From Indians
Partly. Covered By Crop
Control Contract'
WASHINGTON, April 9.-(P)-New
criticism was directed at Secretary
Wallice today by Sen. Arthur H.
Vandenberg, (Rep., Mich.) in his,
fight for publication of big AAA ben-
efit payments.
At the same time, it was learned
that Thomas D. Campbell, Montana
wheat farmer, received about $58,000
in benefit payments under a crop,
control contract partly covering
lands rented from Indians.
Secretary Ickes, through whose de-
partment Campbell rented the In-
dian lands at nominal rates, said the
Indians would receive 15 per cent of,
benefit payments.
Vandenberg, author of a resolu-
tion which would require Wallace toI
furnish the Senate a list of all AAAI
payments in excess of $10,000 a year,:
gleefully asserted in the Senate that
the agriculture secretary had cor-
rected himself in making public what
information he had on the big bene-
fits. ,
Learned Of Payments1
The Michigan Senator said that on
March 23 he had information that
a wheat payment of about $78,000
had been made, but that he did not
know the payee. He recalled that a
week later, Wallace "reluctantly,
yielded to some ventilation on the
subject" and declared the largest
wheat payment was $29,398.
Vandenberg then read into the
record published reports quoting
Wallace as correcting his earlier
statement with an explanation that
the largest payment in a year was
$78,634 to a California corporation.
"The interesting part is how he
found that out," the Senator said. He
added he had written Wallace for
data but received no answers, and
that the Secretary sent the informa-
tion to Chairman Smith (Dem., S.C.)
of the Senate Agriculture Commit-
"I have no information except
what an outsider was able to get
from a reluctant department," Van-
denberg said.
Rabaut Introduces Bill
In the House, Representative Ra-
baut (Dem., Mich.) introduced a bill
today under which 20,000,000 bor-
rowed by 32 cities and counties from
the RFC for relief purposes would be
written off and the obligation to re-
pay cancelled.
In introducing the measure, Ra-
baut said that Congress had can-
celled 280,000,000 borrowed by states
and had subsequently cancelled other
obligations. The same treatment, he
said, should be given the cities and
"The cities and counties," he add-
ed, "are not desirous of evading any
responsibility to the Government. But
they do object to be discriminated
The cities affected and the
amounts included:
Michigan, Detroit, $1,800,000; Mus-
kegon Heights, $20,000; Flint, $296,-

Ohio: Alliance, $31,500; Canton,
$150,000; Cuyahoga Falls, $18,000;
Cleveland, $760,000; Dayton, $322,-
000; Niles, $19,816; Warren, $57,000.
Litior Law Change
Checked By Council
The Ann Arbor City Council to-
night threw out by a vote of 7 to
5 an attempt to change the local
liquor ordinances to permit establish-
ment of a beer hall and restaurant
within the 500-foot zone around a
downtown church.
For a month the Council has been
seeking means to permit the issuing
of the license for that restaurant to
William Metzger, owner of property
in the 200 block of E. Washington,
and a motion to cut the restricted
zone around churches from 500 to
300 feet had already passed two hear-
ings, but severe opposition from local
churches and civic organizations
against permission for Metzger to

'Doctor' Randall Advises,
Travelling As Cure For
All Diseases
Be there a student who escapes
with primal health and vigor from,
the contagious clutches of April, in
his name let there be a medal in-
scribed, on one sid of which shall be
written "immunity," on the ther1
For we "masses" of student, how-1
ever, who are neither immune norl
wholly obtuse - for the student body,
in other words- there are four1
types of April ailments: homesick-c
ness, symptomized by vacant seatsr
in classes today; wanderlust, with its<
vague itching sensations and its doc-
tors, the transportation companies;r
love-sickness - wait 'til it getst
warmer; and, as a sniffling anti-
climax, colds.
Of most interest to "Doctor" Fredi
Randall, who writes prescriptions ont
railroad, bus and airplane tickets, are
the ailments of wanderlust and home-
sickness. Report from his clinic yes-
terday indicated that there are more
pre-vacation patients seeking more
lengthy cures than there have been
for some few years.
The cures line up this way: bus and
train trips homeward, just about as
usual, with trains slightly disfavored
due to the absence of special vaca-
tion rates; airplane trips homeward,
greatly increased, with more than 50
students signed up for aerial jour-
neys; vacation travel reservations in-
creasingly popular, with Etermuda
topping the list and Miami a close1
Every year, it seems some student
gets a really lucky break as far as
vacation travelling is concerned. This
year it is the student, name unan-
News On Birth3
Control Urged
By Federation
Women's Clubs Also Vote
Against Use Of Term
The dissemination of birth control
information through clinics was the
issue passed by an almost unanimous
vote of members of the Southeastern
district of the Michigan State Fed-
eration of Women's Clubs at the last
session of their 18th annual meeting
yesterday in the League.
A . protest was also voted against
the use of the term "Manchukuo,"
designating an independent state, in
reference to Manchuria because Jap-
an alone recognizes its sovereignty.
An election of officers concluded
the business meeting at which Mrs.
Florence F. Heberling of Jackson
was reelected president; Mrs. W. J.
Baumgras, Lansing, vice-president;
Mrs. Frederick R. Gross, Royal Oak,
recording secretary; Mrs. Edgar G.
Gordon, Monroe, treasury; and Mrs.
Charles L. Williams, Jackson, cor-
responding secretary.
Dr. Carl E. Badgley of the Uni-
versity Hospital gave a talk on "The
Value of the Pool in the Treatment
of Cripples," preceding a luncheon at
which Mrs. William D. Henderson
presided, and Robert Henderson, di-
rector of the Dramatic Festival, later
spoke on the theatre of the future.
Mr. Henderson pointed out the
trend toward romanticism in recent
,tage productions, citing the great
success in New York of "Pride and
Prejudice," which was taken almost
completely from Jane Austin's novel,
and which he described as two and
a half hours of love, and of Gilbert
Miller's presentation of "Libels," the

story of a love affair shattered by a
libel suit, which plays he believed I
indicative of this movement.
In speaking of the labor theatre,
Mr. Henderson expressed regret that
many people in the mid-west seemed
to fear the fight against the presenta-
tion of such plays as Clifford Odet's
"Waiting For Lefty," which was re-
cently shown in Ann Arbor, as he
felt literature should be concerned
with present day social issues. Clif-
ford Odet he believes to be the great-
est discovery in the American theatre
since Eugene O'Neill.

cruise director on the Kungsholm
West Indies Cruise. He left town
Wednesday, hardly reluctantly, in

Of the air-minded students, the
most popular destinations are Chi- I
cago, Miami, Minneapolis and New

the longest train rides will extend

According to Mr. Randall, lurid re-
ports of air tragedies, such as the
one at Uniontown, Pa., have had no
reverberations on the confidence in
air safety of University students.
Those who go by air either take the
noon plane out of Ann Arbor for
Chicago or ride into Detroit and takey

Zeppelin In Trouble
On First Home Trip
PARIS, April 9. - (P) --Germany's
new queen of the skies, the huge Zep-
pelin Hindenburg, was said by the air
ministry tonight to be battling motor
trouble and head winds off Gibraltar,
en route home from her maiden
voyage to South America.
In response to an urgent appeal, the
air ministry said, it granted the Zep-
pelin permission to fly over France.
(The ship is under the command of
Dr. Hugo Eckener, reported to be
in the bad graces of Nazi officials for
his refusal to vote in the recent
Reichstag elections. One of the first
uses to which the Hindenburg was
put was a propaganda cruise in be-
half of the Nazis for four days be-
fore the elections.

the 1935 meet, have entered the s
Penn Relays in recent years, but never

The decision to show to the East p
the form which has dominated West- L

the second year from the Drake Re- p
lays, held on the same date.
Heading the Michigan entries will r

1935 ran the fastest mile ever run2
east of the Rockies to set a Con-a
ference mark of 3:15.2, and which t
this winter has run the mile indoorss
in 3:21. The Woverines will receive h
strong competition from Manhattan

5 P.M.; 'Doesn't Pay'
Kenneth C. Tappe, 511 Sunset s
load, was in a critical condition last
night in St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital n
s a result of the automobile crashin
vhich he was involved early yester- 1
lay morning. t
Tappe was taken to St. Joseph'sf
Mercy Hospital rather than the Uni-
ersity Hospital because when George
Ross, '39, a spectator at theaccident, I
,alled the University Hospital, he wasu
old it had no ambulance service "that a
time of night."
And because Ross could not get a
University Hospital Ambulance at
Jefferson and Division Streets, where
the accident occurred. Tappe was
eft lying several vital minutes longer
than he otherwise would have, Ross
The University Hospital does not
maintain ambulance service after 5
p.m., and the reason, according to
Dr. Albert C. Kerlikowske, resident
physician and assistant director of
the Hospital, is that "it does not
When Ross saw the accident, he
rushed to the telephone and called1
the University Hospital, number 2-
2521. "Quick," he told the operatorc
at the Hospital, "Send an ambulancer
to the corner of Jefferson and Divi-
sion. There was a serious accident
here, and a man is badly hurt."
"Sorry," replied the operator. "We
don't have an ambulance this time ofI
night. There is nothing we can do."''
Ross finally called St. Joseph's Hos-j
pital on Ingalls Street, telephone
number 2-3211. He told them theI
same story, and the operator an-
swered that an ambulance would be
sent to the scene of the accident im-
The ambulance from St. Joseph's
came and took the critically injured
Tappe to its hospital. Instantly he
was given medical care.
Tappe is now in a "very dangerous,
condition, with a brain injury," ac-
cording to Dr. Hugh M. Beebe, physi-
cian in charge.
Dr. Beebe said St. Joseph's Hos-
pital maintains ambulance service all
The information service at the Uni-
versity Hospital would give out no
other information last night than
that "we have no ambulance service
at night. You either have to call
Staffan's Funeral Home or the taxi-
cab company."
The University Hospital, according
to Dr. Kerlikowske, can't maintain
an ambulance after 5 p.m. "because
it costs too much.eWe can't operate
our ambulance at any other time than
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Dr. Kerlikowske
said. "During those hours, our one
amlalance only operates between
the various University medical units."
'Bleeding' Flowers
In Calumet Church
Regarded As Omen
CALUMET, Mich., April 9. - (P) -
Three roses, their delicate petals ex-
uding a blood-red fluid, were care-
fully guarded in a receptacle at St.
Ann's Catholic Church today by the
Rev. Father J. A. Paquet, pastor of
the congregation.
The pastor in a formal statement,
declared he found the flowers April
4 in a communion ciborium after
the congregation had prayed the
night before to the little flower "to
give us a tangible proof of her power

with God and her love for us."
The discovery, he said, occurred
while he was giving communion. On
entering the church, he added, he
had noticed a very strong odor of
roses, but saw no fresh flowers and
the old ones in the vases were too
withered to give forth such strong

I lifted the cover of the ciborium three

Peace Plan
Is Refused
By Italians
Spanish Delegate Receives
Cold Reception From
Fascist Representative
tcensed Because
Of League Ruling
Baron Aloisi States He Had
No Instructions On War
Settlement Question
GENEVA, April 9. - (P) -Italy's
delegate to the League of Nations de-
lined tonight to discuss with a con-
'iliation representative the terms
under which Premier Mussolini would
Mlt war in East Africa.
Salvador De Madariaga, Spanish
elegate to the League who was in-
tructed to obtain the terms, received
a cold reception from Baron Pompeo
Aloisi, the Fascist representative.
Plainly incensed over the refusal
f the League Committee of 13 to
mpower Madariaga to go to Rome
for the conversations, Aloisi said he
had no instructions whatsoever on the
war settlement question.
Italian sources reported Aloisi told
"It is rather for one to ask you
your intentions than for you to ask
me mine. The chief of our govern-
ment has announced he is ready to
send a delegate to Geneva after Eas-
ter but he also suggested he would
be glad to see you in Rome before
the Geneva talks begin. Naturally
we would like to know your answer.
The League Committee, before giv-
ing its instructions to Madariaga, had
addressed an appeal to both Italy
and Ethiopia to "prevent any breach
of international law" during the East
African war. The appeal followed
a recommendation by Anthony Eden,
British foreign secretary, particularly
aimed at alleged use by Italian troops
of poison gas.
Madariaga, who appeared dejected
after his conference with the Italian
representative, said he would dis-
cuss the problem with the League
Committee tomorrow.
(The Spanish delegate previously
had been invited to Rome for the
discussions but apparently declined
on the ground that he would also
have to go to Addis Ababa and the
trip would require too much time.)
Great Britain continued her de-
mand for peace in Ethiopia when,
by the action of her foreign secre-
tary, Eden, the British nation split
consideration of the Italo-Ethiopian
war from League consideration of
other international complications.
"The British government has not
been influenced nor does it intend
to be influenced by external consid-
erations or what might be happening
in other parts of the world," Eden
told the League Committee of 13.
Observers at the Geneva session
interpreted his remarks as cleav-
ing the East African dispute from
the Rhineland controversy.
April 10.- (Friday) - () -Eighteen
Italian bombing planes and four
scouting planes today flew over and
bombed Ethiopian positions at Sasa
Baneh Daggah Bur, Daga Hamodo,
Bullaleh, Segag and Bircut.
The attack was carried out de-
spite a heavy rain. Strong anti-air-
craft fire from the Ethiopians had
little effect.

Starving Chinese
Sell Human Flesh
CHUNGKING, Szechuan Province,
China, April 10.- (Friday) -())--
At least 20,000,000 Chinese are starv-
ing in this western-most province
of China, as famine has followed Red
armies which have devastated this
once plenteous area.
With a majority of the province's
northern counties plundered to the
last chicken, and even seed grain
gone, terrible hunger and disease exist
through about 30 per cent of the prov-
ince's 70,0000,000 people. -
Vernacular newspapers print grue-
some accounts of the sale of human
flesh, obtained by robbing graves,
of cannibalism and of the sale of
children by starving parents.
Authorities in the larger centers
report an alarming increase in the
number of dead bodies and homeless
and unidentified persons who have
crawled miserably into the towns,
