Camp Work Included
The campus fight for peace, hav-

University Peace Convocation April
21, is driving forward with four sep-
arate projects.
A corps of 50 students will begin
the sale of Peace Bonds in Ann Ar-
bor this week, it was planned by Jul-
ian Orr, '37, chairman of the special
committee of the Peace Council. A
series of bonds, non-negotiable and
bearing no interest, will be issued in
denominations of one, five, ten and
twenty dollars.
Issued By Council
They are being issued nationally by
the National Council for the Pre-
vention of war, and each bond car-
ries with it a subscription to "Peace
Action," an eight-page weekly paper
issued in Washington. Forty per cent
of the money from each bond is al-
lotted to any local organization which
the subscriber feels is working for
peace, and the committee is seeking
this money for the University Peace
Council. The remainder will go to
the National Council, a permanent
organization which has as its plat-
form three main planks: the fur-
therance of world organization; dis-
armament by agreement; and edu-
cation for peace.
The Peace Bond salesmen will meet
today for organization for their two-
week campaign. It is hoped that
more than 50 will begin the sale on
Thursday, and prizes of five and three
dollars have been offered to those
ranking highest. Fraternity, sorority
and League houses will be asked to
buy bonds as groups, and various
town groups will be reached. The
committee now includes: Willis Play-
er, '37, Ross McPherson, '36, Doris
Wisner, '37, Hilia Lane, '36, Clarence
Krisin, '37, Phyllis Brumm, '37, Cath-
leen Shurr, '37, Evelyn Ehrlichman,

Second: The Peace Council is
bringing to the campus at 4:15 p.m.
Thursday George Lansbury, member
of the English Parliament and lead-
er of the labor ,party, and Kirby
Page, famous author and publicist,
both of whom are well known fight-
ers for peace. The lecture by Mr.
Lansbury will be called "Ways to
Peace"; it will be in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre and there will be a
charge of 25 cents.

planning to send a group of young
men and women to work camps this

members, among them Prof. John P.
Dawson and Prof. John E. Tracy of
the Law School, Prof. Howard B.

WASHINGTON, May 2. - (1) -
Fire, pillage and riot raged in Ethi-
opia's ancient capital of Addis Ababa,
tonight as, in the absence of govern-
ment, bands of plunderers poured
through the town.
The royal family had fled the city
in the anticipation of an attack by
advancing Italian troops.
A report radioed to the State De-t
partment by the American minister,
Cornelius Van H. Engert, said the
center of the city was burning fierce-
ly; that three stray bullets had struck
the American legation but none of its
occupants had been hurt. Van Eng-
ert reported heavy firing in the town'
with bands of plunderers roaming the
streets seeking loot.
In a message filed at 5 p.m. Addis,
Ababa time, he reported the home
of the American vice consul, W. M.
Cramp of Philadelphia, had been
sacked of all his possessions while
he was in the legation.

Marshal Pietro Badoglio's forces al-

were not moving as fast as when they
started their victorious upward climb.

Buckeyes Obtain Second
Victory In Long History
Of' Competition
Four First Places
Are Won By Jesse
Stoller Close In Century
Dash Won By Tying
World's Record
COLUMBUS, O., May 2. -Ohio
State took very sweet revenge for
long years of track domination by
Michigan here this afternoon, hum-
bling the Wolverines in a dual meet
721 to 53, for the second Buckeye
win in the history of competition be-
tween the two schools.
Not at all to the surprise of a good-
sized crowd, braving a downpour of
rain which fell throughout the meet
and which made footing conditions
precarious in the field events and the
track one great puddle, Jesse Owens
of Ohio State was the meet's mdi-
idual star, with four wins in his
favorite events, including a 100-yard
dash timed at 9.4 seconds, tying the
world's record.
Reversal of Form
The meet was marked by the re-
versal of form on the part of Mich-
igan's mile and two-mile entries, as
they were upset by Buckeye winners
in both events, and the emergence
of Ohio State's Pettigrew, who won
the javelin event. The efforts of those
three along with Owens, Charlie Bee-
tham and the Buckeye entries in the
high jump and pole vault, gave the
Scarlet ten first places to four for
the Wolverines.
In the mile George O'Brien, who
ran a brilliant half as a member of
the Buckeye two-mile relay team at
the Penn Carnival last. week, ran
Clayton Brelsford into the ground in
4:25.3 after a slow half done in 2:18.
Paul Benner completed the overthrow
of the Wolverine distance stars, and
incidentally Michigan hopes for sal-
vaging the meet, when he outsprinted
Walt Stone down the stretch to win
in 9:46.8, as Bill Staehle, Conference
champion indoors, faded to a bad
185 Foot Throw
Pettigrew, evidently not so ad-
versely affected by the wet footing,
threw the javelin 185 feet, 5 inches
to place ahead of Adam Stone.
Bright spots in the very dreary
meet from the Michigan point of view,
were in the hundred, the quarter
and the high hurdles. In the dash
Sam Stoller gave Owens his greatest
race of their long rivalry as he led al-
most to the tape, where the Scarlet
Scooter put on a final burst which
gave him a bare six-inch margin. The
time, :09.4, will receive no recognition
in view of a high wind which blew at
the runners' backs, but observers
pointed to the condition of the track
as partially counter-balancing that
and proving the actual character of
the race.
In the quarter Stan Birleson evened
the score with Chuck Beetham, the
brilliant middle- distance star who
ranks as the country's finest at a half-
mile, as he pounded down the stretch
to win going away in .497. In the
high hurdles Bob Osgood registered
the almost amazing time of :14.6,
amazing in view of the track condition
and despite a strong wind.
Michigan entries also showed to
good advantage in the half when Ben
Starr, came from behind to take a
second behind the flying Beetham,
and in the 220, when Harvey Patton,
Fred Stiles and Steve Mason finished
behind Owens. Patton, however, was
disqualified for cutting across the lane
markers, erased by the downpour of
