it was shown that wage rates are as

Mrs. Britten, a writer for the New

cooperation with Mrs. Britten, and
they will write a book to be entitled

Must Salute Flag
For Mouth As Fine
BATTLE CREEK, Mich., May 12.--
/P) -- The Battle Creek police were

well prepared tonight to facilitate the
flag salutes to be given for a thirty-
day period by Dan Keeler, 24-year-old
unemployed truck driver.
The salutes constitute a court sen-
tence imposed on Keeler by Justice
Will Cady after the youth was ar-
rested for wiping grease from his
hands on a flag.
Police officers had two flags to'
night. One was received in the mail
from a Brooklyn, N. Y., resident.
The first two days of Keeler's sen-
tence, there was no flag flying from
the police station. The Brooklyn man
wrote that he had read that the po-
lice were without one.
When Keeler reported yesterday
that he had a job near Charlotte, au-
thorities were about ready to excuse
him from his sentence. He showed up
this morning for the salute, explain-
ing the job had not materialized.4

Campbell Will
Spend Rest Of
Life In Prison
Pleads Guilty Of Bremer
Kidnaping; Is Sentenced
By JudgeJoyce
ST. PAUL, May 12. -(P)-In the
presence of the man he helped seize
and imprison for 22 days, Harry
Campbell, lame mobster of the Bark-
er-Karpis gang, today pleaded guilty
to conspiracy in the $200,000 Edward
G. Bremer kidnaping and was sen-
tenced to life in prison.
Sentence was imposed by Federal
Judge M. M. Joyce as Bremer, 39-
year old bank president kidnaped
Jan. 17, 1934 ,listened attentively
to the proceedings.
Campbell, seized in Toledo six days
ago by Federal agents, pleaded guilty
after five days of almost constant
questioning by Federal agents and
confessed, District Attorney George
Sullivan said, that he and his one-
time chieftain, Alvin Karpis, played
principal roles in the abduction.
Karpis, the nation's unofficial No.
1 Public Enemy under indictment as
a ringleader in both the Bremer and
William Hamm, Jr., abductions.
Hamm, president of a brewing com-
pany, was kidnaped June 15, 1933
and paid $100,000 for his freedom.
Sullivan diselsoed in court that
Campbell received only between $6,-
000 and $7,000 as his share of the
ransom. Although Campbell was
charged with both the actual kid-
naping and conspiracy to kidnap,
Sullivan moved for arraignment on
only the conspiracy charge.
Campbell will be taken first to
Leavenworth Penitentiary and later
probably transferred to Alcatraz
Island prison in San Francisco Bay,
where other members of the kid-
nap mob are serving time. Now in
Alcatraz for life are Arthur (Doc)
Barker, alleged co-leader with Karp-
is in the two kidnapers; Harry Saw-

where the banker was held captive

Crumbling As
Italians Leave1
League Members Leave At
Council's Condemnation
Of Italian Conquests
Council Adjourns;
Sanctions Remain
Alliance Between Italy And
Germany Is Predicted
By Statesmen'
GENEVA, May 12. - (P)- A fresh
effort to build up security for uneasy
Europe crumbled tonight when the
Italian delegation to the League of
Nations brusquely bolted from Gen-
eva at the imperative command of
Premier Mussolini.
The Fascists walked out after the
Council adopted a resolution which
was virtually a new condemnation of
Italy's conquest of Ethiopia.
Asserting it needed further time
"to consider the situation," the
Council adjourned until June 15.
Sanctions meantime will continue
against Italy.
Widespread pessimism also was
based on the fact that the Italians
boycotted a scheduled meeting of the
remaining Locarno powers to act on
Germany's renunciation of the treaty
Mussolini was reported flirting
with Adolf Hitler. Some saw the
possibility of an alliance between the
two dictators.
A reliable source here said a secret
exchange of Italo-German views took
place in Berlin yesterday and ob-
servers wondered if it was connected
with the withdrawal today of the
Italian delegates.
Great Britain was apprehensive of
her position in regard to the vital sea
route to India.
The League was worried lest the
departure of the Italians be followed
by Italy's resignation from the
Orders for the Italian delegation
to leave came from Rome. Baron
Pompeo Aloisi, head of the Fascist
delegation, announced his instruc-
tions to Dr. J. A. C. Avenol, secre-
tary-general of the League. Aloisi
had walked out of a private session
of the Council yesterday, refusing 'to
sit with the Ethiopian delegate, con-
tending Ethiopia no longer has sov-
ereignty but is Italian.
Leading members of the Council
had drafted a resolution in effect
condemning Italy. When Aloisi was
shown a copy of it he called it
"quite unacceptable to Italy." It
was modified somewhat before the
Council adopted it after Italy's de-
After learning that the Italians
were leaving ,the Council in a brief

LOSS Of Departed
Delirium Tremens
Have you seen any delirium tre-
mens, commonly known as D.T.'s run-
ning around lately?
There are many cases on record in
which alcoholic patients have enjoyed
processions of vari-colored animals on
the wall, but Betty Hunter, '37, is
probably the first person who ever
became so attached to a mental me-
nagerie that she wished to keep it
after the cure. In any event, on page
2 of today's Daily is an advertise-
ment for one lost orange giraffe with
green and brown spots that answers
to the name of Clarabelle.
It is with fear in our hearts that
we further publicize this creature. If
you should perchance encounter Clar-
abelle the best advice that we can
give is that you immediately get in
touch with the University Hospital,
or go on the wagon.
To Miss Hunter and her search for
the missing monstrosity we can onlyI
give our condolences. If she will just
try and think how she encountered
Clarabelle in the first place and re-
peat that rather pleasant process
she may be happy. Or is it all just
a Jeep advertisement.

To Hindenburg
Zeppelin On Return Trip
To Germany With Good
Weather Foreseen'
MANY, May 12. -UP)- Dr. Hugo
Eckener, after predicting' a 40-hour
flight by the Zeppelin Hindenburg
from Lakehurst, N.J., to the English
Channel ,hit today at critics of ar-
rangements at Lakehurst to handle
the giant airliner..
A small group in the dining room
was discussing what one called "prim-
itive" arrangements at Lakehurst
when Dr. Eckener, president of the
Zeppelin Company, said sharply:
"Do you not realize what a tremen-
dous debt we owe the United States
government for courtesies extended?'
Why, Lakehurst would have been
closed long ago except for a promise
to me to keep it open for the Hinden-
"Do not criticize details in view of
this magnanimity."
Shortly after the Hindenburg left
the United States coast on the return
of its maiden North American flight,
Dr. Eckener said optimistically:
"The last weather reports indicate
we'll make favorable progress all the
way across, reaching the channel in
40 hours."
Later, over Nova Scotia, reports in-
dicated rain but Dr. Eckener said "we
will decide when we get nearer whe-
ther to detour or not."
Captain Ernst Lehman of the Hin-
denburg said he was "overwhelmed"
at the hospitality shown the zeppelin
crew at Lakehurst, New York and
The Hindenburg, which shattered
the Transatlantic record for lighter-
than-air craft on her westward cross-
ing, began the return trip to Germany
shortly after 10 p.m. last night, her
officers hopeful of an eastern record.
Her westbound trip took 61 hours, 38
Early morning risers along the
southern shore of Nova Scotia caught
glimpses of the ship before it headed

out over the North Atlantic. Her
speed was estimated at about 64 knots.
She passed Halifax at 5:00 a.m.
(Eastern Standard Time) and wea-
ther reports indicated rain and a
northeast wind.
Dispatches from Frankfort-on-
Main, Germany, said a triumphant
welcome awaited Dr. Eckener because
of the favorable reception given the
flight in the United States.
Recently the veteran dirigible ex-
pert, making the present trip in an
advisory capacity, had been reported
out of favor with the Nazi party be-
cause of his reported reluctance to
cooperate in the Reichstag election
But district Nazi party leaders plan
to present him with a silver cup when
the Hindenburg lands. An official
welcome planned in Frankfort was
seen as a probable step toward a com-
plete reconciliation between the Nazis
and Eckener.

in German press reports when the

make this the most fruitful of all an-

George Alder, director, 'of the
camp, said last night: "It would be
impossible to carry on our project
