THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Bill To Guard
Measure Sent To Senate
But No Action Expected
WASHINGTON, Feb. 17. - (A) -
A stop-gap resolution designed to
guard America's neutrality until May
1, 137, was adopted today by the
House and sent to the Senate.
The vote of approval, announced
by Speaker Joseph W. Byrns, was
353 to 27.
The measure already was under
consideration in the Senate, but with
the understanding that no action
would be taken before tomorrow.
The resolution shot through under
suspension of the rules, condemned by
opposition as "gag procedure."
With debate limited to 40 minutes
and all amendments barred, House
members advocating a more drastic
measure had no chance to press a
fight for chan'ges, nor could they
command the votes to shunt the res-
olution aside. A two-thirds vote was
required for adoption.
The measure would extend from
Feb. 29 to May 1, 1937, an expiring
provision in the present neutrality
law for mandatory embargoes on sale
or transportation of arms, munitions
or war implements to any warring
To the existing act, it would add,
however, a ban on the granting of
loans or credits to belligerents in ex-
cess of those needed for ordinary
peacetime business. And in recogni-
tion of the Monroe Doctrine, it would
make the law inapplicable to any
Latin-American nation at war with a
A brisk battle apparently lay ahead
in the Senate, where a bloc led by
Gerald P. Nye, (Rep., N. D.), chair-
man of the Munitions Committee, was
ready to attempt to make the exten-
sion of the embargoes effective only
for 60 days, so that Congress would
have to work out a more permanent
solution for the neutrality problem
Earlier, Rep. Pittman, (Dem., Nev.)
chairman of the Foreign Relations
Committee, had brought the abridged
neutrality plan up in the Senate.
When Senator Charles L. McNary, the
Republican leader, protested against
unusual speed, it was agreed not to
take any action until tomorrow.
To Speak Here
On Italian War
To Illustrate 'Ethiopia's
Death Struggle' With
Movies And Slides
Josef Israels, New York Times cor-
respondent and Pathe News repre-
sentative in Ethiopia, who has re-
cently returned from that country
for a short lecture tour of America,
will speak at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday in
Hill Auditorium under the auspices
of the University Oratorical Associa-
Mr. Israels has entitled his address
"Ethiopia's Death Struggle," and the
talk will be illustrated by moving
pictures and slides.
Described in the February issue of
Fortune magazine as a "novelist,
press agent for Al Smith and son of
the late Belle Moskowitz (guide and
mentor to Mr. Smith) ", Mr. Israels
left for Ethiopia last spring.
It was his second trip to that coun-
try, Mr. Israels having visited Ethi-
opia in 1929 when he became inti-
mately acquainted with Emperor
Mr. Israels read the Emperor's
speech which was broadcasted in
this country several months ago.
Upon his return to America, Mr.
Israels spoke in New York on the
Ethiopian problem, and his address
received wide - spread attention
throughout the country. He has been
associated closely in his work as a
war correspondent with William
Stonepan, formerly a member of the
Michigan Daily staff, who now repre-
sents the Chicago Daily News.
Mr. Israels is only 26 years old, but!
has already attained a national rep-
utation both as a foreign correspon-
dent and as a feature writer for the
New York Tlimes. Notably sympa-
thetic with the Ethiopian cause, his
address should prove timely and au-
thoritative to patrons of the Ora-
torical Lecture course.
Individual tickets for the lecture,
priced at 35 cents, may be obtained
at Wahr's State street bookstore to-
day, or at the Hill Auditorium box

Profitable Publicity May Put
Lewis' Novel Into Film Soon
HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 17. - (P) -
Publicity may lift Sinclair Lewis' "It
Can't Happen Here" from the Holly-
wood shelf to which it was relegated
last week and rush it into immediate
production as a movie.
"If all this talk continues," said
Louis B. Mayer, head of Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer, "perhaps we will
find it profitable to make the picture
at once. '.
He referred to the stir of public
comment that cametwith an assertion
of Sinclair Lewis that his political
novel of an American dictatorship
had been banned from the screen by
Will Hays, "czar" of organized movie
Mayer, whose studio holds the
script of the novel, insisted Hays had
made no such order. The story is
on the shelf, he admitted, but purely
"for financial reasons."
"It would cost too much to pro-
duce," he explained.
Hays refused to talk about the
However, E. J. Mannix, M-G-M
general manager, and the "czar" had
approved the script Friday before he
left here for New York.
Lewis insisted his novel had been
banned from the screen because it
might bring "international compli-
cations," and might "offend Hitler
To this statement film magnates
pointed to several poltiical films of
recent years to show that political
implications in a story would not be
sufficient reason to keep it out of

The seventieth birthday of Prof.
Moses Gomberg, who retired Friday
as head of the chemistry depart-
ment, was commemorated on Feb.
8 by 275 of his friends at a dinner in
Attending were many former stu-
dents of Professor Gomberg as well as
associates from the University fac-
ulty and prominent alumni from var-
ious sections of the country. In
honoring his character and service
they presented him with a bound vol-
ume of birthday greetings, estab-
lished a scholarship in his name, and
gave the chemistry department a
large portrait of the man who had
taught there for 43 years.
The volume of birthday greetings,
which came from alumni and friends
as spontaneous expressions of good-
will, was officially presented by Lewis
E. Lloyd of Ann Arbor on behalf of
Phi Lambda Epsilon, honorary chem-
ical society. Bound in red morocco,
it carried the name, Moses Gomberg,
and the date on the cover page.
The scholarship fund, likewise un-
solicited, will be used, in accordance
with Professor Gomberg's wish, to as-
sst outstandingundergraduate stu-
dents of chemistry who need financial
help, and will be administered by an
executive board. Announced in a
letter to President Alexander G.
Ruthven, the fund at present
amounts to $5,000. It is expected that
further donations will follow as Pro-
fessor Gomberg's friends learn of the
In Sick Cases
Fifty more patients were sent to
the University Hospital from July to
January, 1935, than for the same pe-
riod in 1934, it was disclosed by the
monthly report of the Health Service
issued yesterday by Dr. Warren E.
Forsythe, director of the Health Serv-
"The outstanding condition," Dr.
Forsythe said, "was 50 per cent more
acute appendicitis than last year,
fairly well distributed."
The reports for December and Jan-
uary were combined because of the
vacation period. They revealed 21
cases of acute appendicitis for the
two-month period. Seven cases of
pneumonia, seven of contagious dis-
eases, and 1,672 "colds" were treated.
Neither January nor December
were unusual months in the number
or kind of cases treated, Dr. Forsythe
said. Student health was good and
the volume of services were about the
same as for recent years.
