Graduating Seniors
To Be Led By Band
Various Schools Will Be
Known By The Colors
Of Their Tassels
Graduating seniors will revive
Swingout, one of Michigan's oldest
traditions, at 4:15 p.m., today. It
will be the first Swingout since the
ceremony was banned four years ago.'
Seniors, cloaked in gowns and
wearing mortarboards, will be led by
the Varsity Band from the General'
Library down the diagonal to State
St., where the line will turn left. En-'
tering the street in front of Angell'
Hall the procession will continue
around the campus until it reaches
the University driveway where it will
go to the General Library and be led'
in Senior Sing by the Band.
In case rain prevents Swingout to-
day it will be held at the same time
Issue Statements
Marianna Chockley, chairman of
the League judicial council, and Wil-,
liam R. Dixon, '36, former president
of the Men's Council, issued the
following statement last night:
"According to the standards
evolved by the Senate Committee on
Student Affairs in the action by
which they renewed the tradition
of Swingout, the student disciplinary
committees which must enforce the
orderliness of the ceremony have
little choice in the penalties to be im-
posed in any cases of disorderly con-
"Notice is therefore given that
any such disorderly conduct will be
penalized by suspension or expulsion
of those students involved.
To Investigate Disorders
"The interpretation of the phrase
'disorderly conduct' will be left to the
judgment of the student committees.
The judiciary committee of the
Michigan League and the judiciary
committee of the Men's Council will
investigate all such cases of disorder-
liness, regardless of the school or
college involved, and their recom-
mendations will be sent directly to
the University Discipline Commit-
The various schools and colleges
will be designated by the colors of
their tassels, which are as follows:
The literary college, black; the
engineering college, yellow; architec-
tural college, red; education school,
blue; medical school, green; Law
School, purple; pharmacy college,
olive; dental school, lilac; - business
administration school, white; for-
estry school, russet; and music

Of Debt Issue
PARIS, June 1.-WP)-France's new
left wing-controlled chamber of
deputies met briefly and serenely to-
day, but many members believed it
might be the.calm before the storm.
Coincident with the perfunctory
session, Edouard Herriot, the former
premier who long has been a staunch
advocate of American war debt pay-
ment, again brought the debt issue
into the picture.
Speaking informally, Herriot re-
affirmed his support of "an effort
to pay the debt" and said he was
willing to go to the United States
on a mission connected with the

The former premier, who lost that
post four years ago because, of his
insistance that the debt should be
paid, added he believed a majority
of the new chamber and ministry-to-

ever, no indication of such a senti-
ment from Leon Blum, the premier-

Says That Italy Is Obliged
To Take Responsibility
For Press Statements
A continual warlike atmosphere is'
being produced by propagandistic ac-
tivities such as those with which
Great Britain is charging Italy, Prof.
Lawrence Preuss of the political sci-
ence department said ,yesterday.
Professor Preuss feels that Greatt
Britain's charges against the Malian1
government, recently voiced by An-
thony Eden, foreign secretary, on the(1
floor of the House of Commons, are
undoubtedly true, and thinks that
England would not make such a gravet
charge against any foreign nation
without having' ample evidence to6
support such an accusation.
It is an established fact that thet
Italians have been inciting British
subjects in Palestine and in Egypt tot
revolt. This has been done by means
of word of mouth propaganda, as,
well as through the medium of the
radio station located in Bari, in south-
ern Italy. Likewise, the Italian presst
has ardently been attacking British
colonial policy and urging revolution
among the subordinate peoples.
Says Italy Responsible *
Professor Preuss said that respon-
sibility for such activities could not be
denied by the Italian government.
In cases such as this, Professor
Preuss explained, a sharp distinction
must be drawn between acts of private
persons and acts which can be attrib
uted, directly or indirectly, to the
government. "According to interna-
tional law," declared Professor Preuss,
"a state cannot be held responsible
for an act of an individual, unless
it be an overt act, such as bearing

Lingnan Award
Katherine Taylor Receives
Exchange Scholarship
From Chinese College
Katherine Taylor, '38, was an-
nounced yesterday as the winner of
the Lingnan University scholarship
for the year 1936-37. This is the
first time that Michigan has been
represented in these exchange schol-
Miss Taylor, a member of Chi
Omega sorority, is majoring in Orien-
tal Civilizations. The scholarship
which she received entitles her to free
tuition and room rent for the schol-
lastic year.
This year Lingnan offered five such
scholarships to students of Ameri-
can universities who have completed
either their freshman or sophomore
years. Of the 15 applicants from
Michigan, three were selected for
the final consideration. Miss Tay-
lor's selection is particularly import-
ant because only five women were
selected from the entire United
Lingnan University, with an enroll-
ment of 1,400 is located across the
Pearl River near the city of Canton,
China. It is chartered under the
Board of Regents of the State of New
York and grants the degrees of B. A.
and B.S.
Colleges which were represented by
Lingnan scholarship holders during
the past year include: Harvard,
Swarthmore, Penn State, College of
the Pacific, University of Redlands,
Occidental College, University of
Washington, Stanford, and the Uni-
versity of Hawaii.
Awards are made on the basis of
the following qualifications: at least

a B-minus or C-plus scholarship av-
erage; Christian character, partici-
pation in extra-curricular activities;
interest in inter-racial and inter-
national matters; a health certificate
from a reputable physician, ability to
participate in one or more sports;
assurance of adequate financial
means and dramatic, musical and
other special talents.
About twenty of the students who
have received scholarships plan to
leave Seattle Aug. 10. Miss Taylor
has not definitely decided whether
she will sail with this group or travel
with faculty members who are going
to the Orient.
Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson yesterday
expressed himself as particularly en-
thusiastic over Miss Taylor's award.
"The selection of a Michigan student
for such an honor is particularly ap-
propriate, inasmuch as we have the

Preuss said, Italy cannot disclaim
responsibility for the activitiesof its
citizens, for when a totalitarian state
exists it must, because it is totalita-
rian, assume the responsibility for acts
of its citizens.
This is especially true in the case
of the press, continued Professor
Preuss. In Italy, since the press is
completely censored by the govern-
ment, anything appearing in the
newspapers must have the sanction
of the government. Therefore, Pro-
fessor Preuss added, the government
cannot escape the responsibility of
the act.
Serious Menace To Peace
Propagandistic activities such as
these are, in Professor Preuss' opin-
ion, a serious menace to peace. Propa-
ganda by one nation against another
"tends to "erase the distinction be-
tween war and peace."
The activities of Italy are similar
to those carried on by Germany
against Austria and by Soviet Russia
immediately following the World
War," Professor Preuss stated.
According to Professor Preuss, this
type of propagandistic activity repre-
sents a relatively new method of
spreading war atmosphere. "This
its consequencesas an actual overt
kind of act is almost as serious in
act," Professor Preuss said. "The Ital-
ian propaganda in Palestine and
Egypt is practically as harmful as the
actual shipping of aims to the in-

Dr. Hornberger
To Study Year

In Los Antreles
Dr. Theodore Hornberger of the
English department will leave the first
of July to begin a year of study at the
Huntingdon Library at Los Angeles on
an International Research Fellowship
granted by the library. He will re-
sume his teaching duties here in Sep-
tember, 1937.
Dr. Hornberger will use the collec-
tion of colonial literature at the li-
brary to continue his study of the
reception of scientific ideas in Amer-
ica in the 17th and 18th centuries,
The collection at the library is re-
garded as unusually fine.
Dr. Hornberger has been doing sim-
ilar work in this field for several years
In his study he will analyze the effect
of scientific ideas upon theology anc

Rain Ends Michigan's Bid
For Win Over Waseda
In Second Inning
The baseball championship of the
Western Conference, not held by
Michigan since 1929 and never held
undisputedly by Iowa, will be the
goal of both of those teams this
afternoon when they clash on the
Ferry Field diamond in the first game
of the year's most important series.
Both today's and tomorrow 's battles
will start at 4 p.m. and several thou-
sand fans are expected to pack the
stands. Captain Berger Larson will
handle the pitching assignment for
the Wolverines this afternoon in what
may turn out to be a mound duel with
Lowell Gosser, ace Iawkeye right-
hander who is undefeated in Big Ten
competition this season.
Rain Stops Waseda Tilt
Yesterdays mid-afternoon down-
pour ended Michigan's bid for vic-
tory over the touring Waseda Uni-
versity nine from Tokio in the last
of the second inning. John Gee
had retired the Japanese stars in
order in both innings and the Wol-
verines met the same fate in the
first. With two men out in the sec-
ond Joe Lerner reached first on
an excusable error by the Waseda
shortstop, Sataka, who had trouble
throwing the wet ball.
Coach Fisher's fast traveling nine
has won its last six games, two of
them from Michigan State, 2-1 and
5-2, to clinch the state champion-
ship, and in 24 games this season has
chalked up 19 victories. The pow-
erful Hawkeyes, coached by the famed
Otto Vogel, have slugged their way
to 16 wins in 19 games this year and
experts are wary of conceding either
team an edge in today's classic.
Must Make Clean Sweep
As Michigan fans are well aware,.
if either Iowa or Michigan takes both
ends of the double engagement that
team will be the Big Ten titleholder
of 1936, taking over the crown won
last year by Minnesota. Should the
teams split, Illinois will become cham-
pion. If the renowned Ann Arbor
weather turns its back on the clubs
and allows but one game to be played
the team that takes that single en-
counter can lay claim to the title.)
If it so happens that both games are
rained out the season is already over
and Michigan and Iowa will be co-
Both the Wolverines and Hawkeyes
have won eight out of nine Conference
games while Illinois, already finished
for the year, has a record of 10 wins
and two losses.

Two Billion
Dollar Relief
Bill Is Passed
Supply Measure Is One Of
Largest In Peace-Time
History _
Republican Moves
Attempts By Vandenberg
To Insert Anti-Political
Clause Jeered
WASHINGTON, June 1.- (P)-
Riding down Republican attempts to
shift the administration of relief
back to the states and to block the
Florida Ship Canal, the Senate to-
night passed by a 62 to 14 vote a
more than $2,428,000,000 relief and
deficiency bill.
The measure, as it went back to
the House for action on Senate
changes, carried added items that
made it one of the biggest supply
measures in peace-time history. Pas-
sage cleared the way for debate to-
morrow on the tax bill, the last big
barrier to adjournment.
Amendments Added Fast
As the Senate sat until long after
dusk, amendments were added to
the relief bill so rapidly that clerks
could not compute the exact total,
but figured it roughly at something
in excess of $2,428,000,000. Included
was $1,425,000,000 for continuing the
work relief program.
A long day of heated debate was
claimed by a brief skirmish over an
effort led by Senator Vandenberg
(Rep. Mich.) to return relief to the
states, with the government con-
tributing 75 per cent of the cost. It
went down under a chorus of Demo-
cratic noes, 57 to 14.
The skirmish was marked by a
division between two Republican
presidential nomination possibilities,
Senators Borah of Idaho and Van-
denberg, as well as Democratic chid-
ing about another possible nominee
-Gov. Alf Landon of Kansas.
Recalls Landon Statements
Senator Schwellenbach (Dem.
Wash.) called the attention of the
Republican Senators to statements
made by Landon-before he was
prominently mentioned in the presi-
dential race-favorable to the ad-
ministration's relief efforts.
The biggest addition to the total
carried in the deficiency bill was an
amendment by Senator Hayden
(Dem., Ariz.), adding $57,000,000 for
western reclamation projects.
In the last minute rush to pass the
bill, the administration by a narrow
margin of 35 to 32 also turned back
a Republican move to reconsider the
vote on an amendment to authorize
a new survey of the Florida ship
Michigamua, senior honorary so-
ciety, elected its officers for the com-
ing year at its meeting Sunday night

The representative was arrested
Saturday night for disordrly conduct,
his fourth major encounter with po-
lice since last January.
Dr. Edgar Bocock, superintendent
of Gallinger Hospital, said physicians
had ordered that Zioncheck get a
thorough rest before proceeding with
an examination.
The Congressman, explaining that
he was very sleepy and tired, said he
welcomed the suggestion.
Before going to bed he said that

of his bride of a month, the former

Supreme Court ruled today in a vigor-

unconstitutional as applied to women
on the ground that it violated "the

After thus following up the invali-
dation of the Federally-enacted wage

and the Gutfey Coal Control Act by
holding that the individual states can-
not establish minimum wages for
women, the high court adjourned

Justice Butler delivered the ma-
jority opinion, in which he was joined
by Justices Vandevander, McRey-
nolds, Sutherland, and Roberts.
Among other points, Butler asserted
that women are "getting and holding
jobs that otherwise would belong to
men,' 'and that competitive conditions
must apply to all.
In an outspoken dissent, Chief Jus-
tice Hughes-joined by Justices Bran-
deis, Stone, and Cardozo -- contended
that women should be accorded spe-
cial treatment and argued that the
act should be upheld because its "end

In the NRA and Guffey decisions,
the high tribunal took a different
ground from today's right-to-contract
position, holding that the Federal gov-
ernment could not regulate such mat-

late states' rights.
Arguments arose immediately after
the delivery of the significant decision
as to what effect it would have on
the New York law establishing min-
imum wages for children. In the
majority opinion, Justice Butler said
the case at issue "involved no ques-

McCrea's wire was in response to
a message from Senator Benson, who

Rain Spoils Day For Ball Team
From Land Of The Rising Sun

Tokyo Nine Comes, Goes'
Without Chance To Even
U. Of M. Score
It was a bad day for 19 little base-
ball players from the Land of the,
Rising Sun yesterday. The sun did
not rise, and their baseball game
with Coach Fisher's boys was called
off on account of rain.
The 19 little baseball players made
up the team of Waseda University at
Tokyo in Japan, and they stopped
here Sunday night en route on a trip
across the continent. They were
scheduled to meet the Wolverines in
a game here to decide an issue of
baseball that has been running ever
since the first Waseda team was
downed twice here in 1921. Michi-
gan went to Tokyo in 1929 and 1932
and lost a game each time to Wa-
So the score was tied at two each,
and the little men of Nippon were all
set to do or die on Ferry Field yester-

educational equipment as they do."
The Nipponese baseballers regard
Harvard as the University extraor-
dinary in the United States, Professor
Kayegama said, but "we always have
held Michigan in very high esteem."
Professor Kayegama, who played
ball himself when a student at Wa-
seda University, declared that rich
and poor alike in Japan have the
keenest interest in baseball. Most of
the teams there are amateur ones in
colleges and universities, he ex-
plained, although there ar esome pro-
fessional nines. Even the World
Series in America is followed intently
in Japan, and he said with a smile,
the Japanese now have an entirely
new respect for the Tiger.
The Japanese baseball players
speak the lingo and everything. Only
they speak it in Japanese, and there-
in, said Professor Kageyama, lies
their greatest difficulty on Americar
diamonds. The umpires especiall3
are a little difficult to understand.
With regard to umpires however,
the Japanese ball player is of ar
entirely different school of thought
