Daily Again
Tops School
Collegiate Press Designates
Michigan Student Paper
National 'Pacemaker'
295 School Papers
JudgedIn Contest
Improvement Of 45 Points
Is Made Over Last Year;
Features Rate High
The Michigan Daily was again
awarded "Superior All-American Rat-
ing," and for the second successive
year was designated as the "Pace-
maker" by the Associated Collegiate
Press in its annual critical service for
college newspapers, Fred L. Kildow,
director of the . organization, an-
nounced yesterday.
Out of the 295 papers that were
submitted for criticism by schools and
colleges throughout the country, The
Daily was the only daily paper to be
awarded the title of "Pacemaker."
Mr. Kildow, in sending his letter of
congratulations to the editors, de-
scribed the "Pacemakers" as "the
leaders in their respective groups
and the cream of the All-Americans."
News Value Highest
The other papers to receive the
"Pacemaker" rating were the "Junior
Collegiate," a tri-weekly publication
of the Los Angeles Junior College,
the "Carnegie Tartan," a weekly is-
sued by students of the Carnegie In-
stitute of Technology, and the "Echo,"
a weekly paper of the Milwaukee
State Teachers College.
All the papers submitted were
judged and graded upon the bases
of news values and sources; news
writing and editing; headlines, typog-
raphy, and make-up; and depart-
mental pages and special features.
Out of the possible 1,000 points, The
Daily won 925, an improvement of 45
points over last year's 880.
The Daily got the highest percent-
ages from the divisions of news value
and courses and headlines, typog-
raphy and make-up, being allotted 235
out of a possible 250 in both cases,
receiving the maimum percentage of
points for its news gathering system
and for its typography, printing and
make-up of inside pages. The front
page make-up was adjudged "excel-
lent," receiving 55 out of a possible.
Is Sixteenth Judging
The department pages and special
features division received from the;
judges a vote of 195 out of a possible
220. The sports page was also called
"excellent," and the women's depart-
ment, under the leadership of Jose-
phine T. McLean, '36, women's editor,
was given the maximum number of
points allotted to that particular sec-
This year marked the sixteenth
time that the Associated Collegiate
Press, a division of the National Scho-
lastic Press Association, has conduct-
ed this critical service. The score-
book of the organization states defi-
nitely that the competition is not a
contest, except in the "sense that a
teacher in a class room conducts a
contest with every student striving for
the best record possible."
G.O.P.'s Task
Topic Of Talk
By Fitzgerald

CASPER, Wyo., May 1. -(P) -
Gov. Frank D. Fitzgerald of Michi-
gan told the Republican state con-
vention here today the party "has a
bigger job on its hands than to re-
cite the long list of injustices and
extravagances that have come out of
the blunderings of the New Deal."
The keynote speaker asserted the
Republican party "must call to its
side that type of stalwart citizen who
sickens at the thought of a welfare
questionnaire, but prays for a regu-
lar pay envelope.
"It must face frankly the fact that
there is something wrong in an ec-
onomic system which permits great
fortunes to accumulate in industrial
and commercial enterprises while the
workers who produce these surpluses
are never far from want.

Monkey Business
In Maternity Ward
Suzy Has A Baby
Suzy gave birth to a baby ester-
day at the University Hospital ma-
ternity ward.
The baby arrived at exactly 7:26
p.m., according to Dr. Jack Schene-
decker, who was in attendance. Both
mother and child were doing well, he
said last night.
Suzy, it should be mentioned, in-
cidentally, is a monkey.
She and two companions have been
playmates in the maternity ward for
the past year. They hail originally
from the University zoo.
Suzy's baby had not been named
last night.
Doctors expect that the monkeys,
happy with their recently swelled
ranks, will stay on to brighten the
lives of theamedical tribe.

Inflation Bloc
Wins Victory
In First Test
Frazier-Lemke Farm Debt
Refinancing Bill Assured
Vote This Week
Winl Be Called Up
For 6 Hour Debate
House Votes To Take Bill
From Rules Committee
For Showdown
WASHINGTON, May 11. --W)-A
tumultuous House voted today to
take up the politically explosive Fra-
zier-Lemke farm debt refinancing
bill and the first real currency ex-
pansion issue of the session.
The Democratic House leadership
failed by a 67 vote margin to prevent]
consideration of the bill that would
call for the issuance of $3,000,000,-
000 in new currency, and then of-
fered no resistance to a rule under
which it will be called up tomorrow;
for six hours of debate.1
Members of the Democratic high
command contended, however, that
today's ballotting was no real test+
and that the bill would be defeated+
on the vote on passage next Wed-+
nesday or Thursday.+
On the other hand, Representa-
tive Lemke (Rep., N.D.), co-author,
said he expected the measure to
comimand even more votes on 'pas-+
sage than it did today.1
"There aren't 75 members who
know what the bill is about," he said.
"I'm satisfied that after we have
explained it, the membership will
realize it is not inflation and thatt
it will mean the salvation of thef
farmers and of the nation."1
The bill would authorize issuance,
of new currency for refinancing ex-1
isting farm indebtedness, with farm-1
ers paying the government 12 per+
cent interest and 1/2 per cent prin-~
cipal over 47 years.
First; by a 145 to 134 standingI
vote, and then by a 220 to 153 roll
call ballot, the House agreed today
to Lemke's motion to take the bill
away from the rules committee,,
where it had been pigeonholed since
last session.
Immediately the chamber shouted
down the opposition to adoption of
the rule allowing six hours of de-
bate. To the expressed surprise of
Speaker Byrns, there was no record
vote on this.

Senate Leaders
Quick Passage

For Two


Student Death Rate Increased,
But General Health Is Steady

WASHINGTON, May 11. - (/P) -
The $2,364,229,712 deficiency bill,
carrying $1,425,000,000 for relief, rodeI
throughthe House on a 341 to 381
vote today and went to the Senate
where leaders forecast a quick trip;
to the White House.l
A potential obstacle appeared,
however, as friends of Senator Hay-t
den (Dem., Ariz.) said he would re-;
new the fight started in the House
to obtain $700,000,000 for the Public,
Works Administration.
Administration leaders succesful-
ly defeated efforts of a House bloc;
headed by Representative Beiter
(Dem., N.Y.) to earmark part of the
relief fund for the PWA. Hayden
seeks to obtain $700,000,000 in addi-
tion to the money voted for relief.
Chairman. Glass (Dem., Va.) of
the Senate appropriations committee
told reporters he believed the de-
ficiency measure would be passed by
the Senate before the controversal
tax bill received approval. Relief
and revenue legislation are the only
so-called 'must' measures to be
passed before adjournment which
leaders hope will come in the first
week of June.
The House shouted its approval
of the deficiency bill after a motion
by Representative Taber (Rep., N.Y.)
to recommit the measure with in-
structions to the appropriations com-
mittee to substitute a system of State
grants for WPA handling of the re-
lief fund had been defeated 286 to

besides the relief fund are $458,621,-

and $39,900,000 for the Tennessee

Preferences Of Co-Eds
Will Be Debaters' Topic
"Resolved: That co-eds prefer en-
gineers" will be the topic for debate

night to decide on a course of action.
The Italian delegate, Baron Pom-
peo Aloisi, abruptly left the session
when the League voted to retain the
question of the Italo-tEhiopian war
on its agenda, and the whole prob-
lem was being discussed by the coun-
cil in a secret meeting last night.
GENEVA, May 11.-(/P)-The League
of Nations Council, deadlocked with
Premier Mussolini on the conquest
of Ethiopia, was summoned for a
secret, unofficial session tonight to.
the home of Joseph A. C. Avenol,
League Secretary-General.
The purpose of the meeting, it was
understood, was to discuss what ac-
tion the Council will take tomorrow
on the Italo-Ethiopian war.
British Present League Stand
British delegates said the League
would resist Italy's claim of sov-
"Futile,"exclaimed the Italian Ba-
ron Aloisi as he stalked out, refusing
to sit at the table with Wolde Mar-
iam, whose country - Ethiopia -e
said, no longer exists.
Resistance by the League, said
British delegates, means:
1. The League does not recognize
Italy's claim to soverignty over Eth-
2. The League does recognize the
continued existence of Emperor Haile
Selassie's Ethiopian government.
Through Aloisi, Il Duce demanded
the outright removal of the Italo-
Ethiopian dispute from the Coua-
cil's agenda on the grounds "There
is no Ethiopian state. The only sov-
ereignty is Italian."
But with quiet stubborness the
Council voted to keep the Ethiopian
problem on the agenda.

Qualifies For
National Open
DETROIT, May 11. -- Capt. Chuck
Kocsis of the Varsity golf team was
among the six players from the De-
troit district to qualify for the Na-
tional Open tournament in the 36-
hole trials today over the Meadow-
brook Country Club course.
Kocsis, who put together scores of
75 and 72 for a total of 147, tied for
third place among the six qualifiers
with Louis Chiapetta, of Cascades,
Jake Fassezke, Michigan open
champion and another Jackson pro-
fessional, led the six making the grade
with rounds of 69 and 76 for 146, one
stroke better than Bob Gray of Es
sex. Stanley Hancock of Detroit and
Chris Brinke, Detroit District cham-
pion, completed the list with scores
of 148 and 148 respectively.

A large increase in the various ser-
vices rendered the student body by
the University Health Service has
been reported by Dr. Emory W. Sink.
His reports for the fiscal year begin-
ning June 1, 1935 indicate that al-
though the student health has re-
mained of average grade, the death
rate has risen above those of the past
two years, as has the number of stu-
dents using the various departments
of the Health Service.
There have been eight deaths in
the University since the beginning of
the fiscal year, compared to one in
1935 and three in 1934. One half of
the eight were accidental, but only
one was caused by an automobile ac-

The number of room calls has in-
creased this year to 125 over 77 for
last year, and the number of pre-
scriptions filled by the Health Service
has increased to 1,303 over 984 for
the fiscal year of 1934. The number
of laboratory examinations this year
has also reached a new high of 2,156,
as compared to 1,908 for last year and
944 for 1934.
One of the "special services" of the
Health Service during the past year
has been the fitting of glasses and
refraction of eyes. According to Dr.
Sink, about 15 per cent of the total
student enrollment receives a com-
plete eye refraction annually. Of
these, about 35 per cent are "first re-
fraction." About 96 per cent of the
natients complain of symptoms of
