MADRID, Oct. 3.-(Saturday)-(/P)
-Fascist insurgent planes bombed
the outskirts of Madrid early today.
Damage appeared to be only minor.
Military airdromes on the edge of
the city apparently were the objec-
tive of the raiders. The night was
clear and moonlit.
The crash of bombs and the boom
of government anti-aircraft guns
could be heard clearly in the center
o fthe capital.
As soon as the warning of the raid
was given, military patrols scoured
the streets, stopping and questioning
many pedestrians.
MADRID, Oct. 2.- (P) - Govern-
ment leaders tonight ordered their
officers to kill every one of their
men who refuse to charge the insur-
gent lines squeezing Madrid.
"Do or die-if need be from your
officers' bullets!" were the orders as
the government commanded renewed
counter attacks on all fronts.
It was,.the government proclaimed,
"the gravest hour of Spain's history."
Several thousand raw recruits were
drilled by government officers in
Madrid in preparation for ,the' final
defense of the government's capital.
The martial law orderde for all the
military forces was making itself felt
in' increased outward morale, officers
reported to the war ministry.
The men were said by their offic-
ers to be standing their ground in
the face of enemy fire rather than
retreat and be shot by their officers.
The, war ministry announced the
insurgent wing driving from Avila
to complete the circle around Madrid
was driven back at Naval Peral and
San Bartolome De Pinares, about 40
miles west of Madrid.
Some 400 Fascists were captured
by government forces in the Kalamua
Hills on the Bay of Biscay sector, it
was reported.
The fighting around Olias Del Rey
and Bargas continued unabated, with
the government forces hurling one
counter attack after another against
the Fascist captors of the area about
five miles north of Toledo.
It was announced that government
forces had. captured the suburbs of
Oviedo, long besieged Fascist strong-
hold in the north.
In the south, an insurgent attack
was expected on Aranjuez, on a main
highway leading into Madrid, 28
miles away.
LISBON, Portugal, Oct. 2.-V')--
Several Spanish cabinet ministers
were reported today in Fascist com-
muniques to have fled to France
aboard an Argentine warship.
Reports also reached here that
Gen. Francisco Franco, named dic-
tator by the insurgents, had pro-
claimed "A New Spain" to be ruled
as a corporative state on the model
of Portugal and Italy. .
The reports that ministry members

had quit the capital emanated from
insurgent headquarters at Valladolid,
Spain. They said the fleeing officials
had reached Alicante and were bound
for Marseille, France, on the cruiser
25 De Mayo.

(By the Associated Press)
Gov. Alf M. Landon listened to
a broadcast of the World Series game
and worked on his itinerary for Great
Lakes states campaigning. He
planned to see a college football game
today at Lawrence, Kans.
President Roosevelt saw yester-
day's World Series game, dedicated

Carillon Receives
Unofficial Baptism
By Unknown Artist
At least one of the bells for the
new Charles J. Baird Carillon has
apparently received its trans-Atlantic
baptismal sounding.
Late workers in the Chemistry
building, across N. University from
the bell tower, reported yesterday
that they had been treated to an im-
promptu chiming early yesterday
morning. Not only did the sounds
appear to originate from a single bell
among those already hung in the
tower, but also their full and clear
tone served to identify the chiming
as no ordinary quarter-hour striking.
No desire to commemorate the pas-
sage of any generally distinguished
interval of time, however, seemed to
have , actuated the unknown bell-
ringer. Although the ambitious
chemists testified that the hour was
at least 1:05 a.m., they declared they
heard a round dozen of strokes in
fairly rapid succession.
Oriental Crisis
Becomes Acute
As Officer Dies
Two Chinese Condemned
To Death As Punishment
For SlayingJapanese
SHANGHAI, Oct. 2.-('P)-Stormy
protests of milling crowds of Chinese,
incensed over the death sentence
meted out to two of their fellow-
countrymen for the slaying of a
Japanese naval officer, heightened
the Sino-Japanese friction to critical
proportions today.
Through the narrow passageways
of Hongkew, Shanghai's "Little To-
kyo," where Japanese bayonets have
enforced martial law since before the
trial began, hostile crowds of Chin-
ese and Japanese jostled each other
in dangerous contiguity. Observers
were gravely concerned, fearing a
new flare-up of the long smouldering
animosity of the two nationalities.
Hundreds of Chinese, in shrill-
voiced panic, hastened their evacua-
tion of the densely-populated Chapei
In Peiping, the Japanese army was
reported to have launched large scale
maneuvers throughout the Tientsin-
Peiping area, extending from the sea
westward to the Kinhan Railroad.
Despite Japanese assurances of the
peaceful intentions of this war ma-
chine, the maneuvers caused Chinese
throughout the huge area to fear
impending events. It was pointed
out that similar maneuvers preceded
the Japanese seizure of Manchuria
in 1931.'
'Varsity' Anniversary
Feted On Air Program
A program celebrating the 25th
anniversary of the writing of "Var-
sity," Michigan's famous march
composed by Earl V. Moore and J.
Fred Lawton, was presented last
night by Station WJR.
Waldo Abbot, director of the Uni-
versity Broadcasting Service, and T.
Hawley Tapping, secretary of Alumni
Association spoke on the program.
They recounted the history of fa-
mous Michigan songs and described
the role they play in college life. Re-
cordings made by Fielding Yost,
Harry Kipke, and Wilfred Shaw, Di-
rector of the Bureau of Alumni Re-

lations, were also used on the pro-
Al Weeks, Michigan alumnus, act-
ed as master of ceremonies, and
Michigan music was played.

Rafters Ring Yost Gives Michigan 'Pretty

As Pep Meet
Draws 5,000
Band Opens Rally To Tune
Of 'Victors' As Crowd
Fills Auditorium
First Speech Given
By 'Whitey' Wistert
'Michigan Is Institution,'
Bruim Tells Crowd;
'40 Present In Force
More than 5,000 noisy students at-
tended the first pep rally of the sea-
son last night in Hill Auditorium and
by shouting, singing and cheering at
the top of their lungs gave testimony
of their 'confidence of the outcome
of today's game.
Led by drum-major Robert Fox,
'39, Michigan's 110-piece band opened
the rally by marching into the over-
flowing auditorium playing The Vic-
tors. While students who had fol-
lowed the band over to the audito-
rium crowded into the upper bal-
conies, the band played The Glory
of the Gridiron, and the 'meeting was'
then opened by Miller Sherwood, '37,
president of the Men's Council, which
sponsored the rally.
First to speak was blond-haired
All-American tackle Francis "Whi-
tey" Wistert of the 1933 and now on
the coaching staff here. He was in-
troduced by Sherwood, who had to
roll up his shirtsleeves and trousers
and take off his necktie before he
could quiet the audience enough to
make the introduction.
Freshmen Addressed
"Whitey" spoke of the powerful
team coming down from Lansing to-
day, but assured the students, whose
catcalls and whistling frequently in-
terrupted him, that with a continua-
tion of last night's enthusiasm on
behalf of the student body the team
could not fail in today's struggle with
their traditional rivals, the Spartans.
Holding the oil can awarded to "the
most loquacious lubricator" on cam-
pus in one hand, and a megaphone'
in the other, Sherwood introduced
Prof. John L. Brumm of the jour-
nalism department. Coatless, and a
trifle harried by the overly-zealous
students in the audience, who per-
sisted in wise cracking in the middle
his sentences, Professor Brumm held
most of the audience at attention
while he told of a song that used to
be sung "in the old days" before a
State game. In the peroration of
his five-minute speech he declared
with hands cupped around his mouth,
"Michigan is more than a football
team: it's a great institution."
Brumm Introduced
After 5,000 hopeful students rose
and sung The Yellow and the Blue,
'the meeting was over, but not the
evening's activities, for freshmen were
advised that there would be a meet-
ing in the auditorium after the rally
was over.
Addressed by Izzy Binder, '40, of
New Rochelle, N. Y., who had his
tigousers rolled up and was sans
cravat, the frosh were given instruc-
tions regarding the snake dance be-
tween halves in the stadium today.
The freshman meeting then disband-
ed as the verdant men of '40 hurried,
drunk with power, toward the two
campus cinemas, expecting to effect
an entrance by sheer man power.
BOSTON, Oct. 2.--0P)-Gov. James
M. Curley, Democratic candidate for
the United States Senate, declared
tonight Al Smith's endorsement of
the candidacy of Gov. Alf M. Landon
for President should "strengthen"
the Democratic cause.

Kipke Won't Make Any
Predictions Before Tilt
Without Crossed Fingers
Old Man Yost, mentor of historic
Michigan gridiron glories and no
slouch at picking winning teams,
ambled off Ferry Field last night
and growled that he guessed our
young men have a pretty good chance
to show up the boys from East Lan-
sing today.
And if you could have seen the zip
with which our young men, led by
Young Man Matthew Patanelli, an-
swered Coach Kipke's "all right," you
would have agreed with Old Man
Now Mr. Yost did not come right
out and make this prediction of
victory. Oh no. First, earlier, before
he had gone out on the field and
provided counsel on charging and
blocking (as he used to do for the
Point-a-Minute Teams), he would
only allow that "the team looks all
right" to him. But all the time as
he was talking, trying to be heard
above the shouts from the Varsity
men, raring to go, a smile played
over his lips and his eyes had a
twinkle which belied any anxiety his
lack of enthusiasm may have indi-;
"It's like this," he began in that
drawl which used to goad famous
Michigan athletes into action. "These
boys are all right. They've got plenty

football games, see. Of course they're
green and lack experience. But how
about those fellows up at State? I
think we're as good as they are."
"Of course," Mr. Yost went on, tak-
ing time out to watch the Varsity run
in off Ferry Field to get ready to leave
for Plymouth, "I don't know, see. And
I'm not saying whether we'll win or
not. I can tell you that tomorrow
after the game."
"Then you're satisfied, Coach?"
Yost was asked.
"Satisfied?" He grunted. "I'm sat-
isfied that these boys are going to
give all they've got, see, I'm satisfied
about that."
Kipke wandered over, and sighed
as the inquisition started. "What, Mr.

"Well," he replied in effect, "yes

After this profound utterance, he
paused. Then:
"Do you think'we'll win?"
"Gosh, boy," Kipke answered.
"Don't ask me. You know as much
about it as I do." -
"Well, at least you wouldn't be sur-
prised if we win?"'
Kipke said emphatically: "No."

Cornelia Otis Skinner, stage star,
will present the first of the series of
lectures scheduled by the University
Oratorical Association Oct. 29 in Hill
Auditorium, Prof. Carl E. Brandt of
the speech department and secretary
of the committee on University lec-
tures, announced yesterday.
Miss Skinner, considered the out-
standing woman artist in original
dramatic interpretations, will give
several dramatic sketches.
Fr. Bernard R. Hubbard, "the
Glacier Priest," will deliver the sec-
ond lecture of the series Nov. 12.
His talk, accompanied with rpotion
pictures, will be "A New Voyage into
the Ice Inferno." He appeared here'
last year, drawing one of the largest
audiences, and has again been booked
by popular demand.
Bertrand Russell, English phil-
osopher and lecturer, will speak Nov.
24 on "Education and Freedom,"
and H. V. Kaltenborn, Columbia
Broadcasting system's political com-
mentator, will close the fall season
Dec. 9 with a talk "Kaltenborn Edits

companied by color motion pictures.
Capt. John Craig, under-sea pho-
tographer for Hollywood studios, will
deliver another motion picture Feb.
25. He will describe "Diving Among
Sea killers."
The series will be closed March 16
when the Martin Johnsons appear.
They will lecture on "Wild Animals

The interest in the lecture series'
is greater this year than in the last
several years, Professor Brandt said.
The request for season tickets, he
stated, has been the greatest in four
or five years

Swordfish' Is.


As Treasure Hunt
Goes Rapidly By
"Swordfish!" stammered the cal-
low youth.
"What's your trail number?"j
growled the busy desk editor.
"Number five," said the youth.
"It's the animal in me," muttered
the desk editor.
And the youth turned and fled,
headed, no doubt, for the museums',
miniature zoo.
It actually happened, and in a
newspaper office, where men at their
best are little more than beasts. The
job was quite extra-routine as far
as the desk editor was concerned; he
was only following the orders given
him by a mysterious Miss X_ early
in the afternoon. It seems that Chi
Alpha Delta was holding a treasure
hunt, and in the recklessly aban-
doned manner of youth, they were
willing to stop at nothing. Even the
sanctity of The Daily office could not
deter them.

Backfield Choices
More than 50,000 football fans will
pour into the Michigan Stadium this
afternoon to witness the 30th re-
newal of the Michigan-Michigan
State gridiron feud, a renewal that
is expected to develop into the great-
est battle in the history of this intra-
state rivalry.
It will be the first trip to the post
for Harry Kipke's 1936 Wolverines
and as a result the national grid spot-
light will be centered upon them as
they attempt to take an important
stride up the comeback trail. For
two years the Spartans from East
Lansing have dominated the state
football picture with successive wins
over Michigan and today those same
Spartans will seek to give Coach
Charley Bachman a third straight
triumph over Kipke's charges.
State Is Slower
State, with one victory already to
its credit in the present gridiron
campaign, will present a veteran line-
up this afternoon as opposed to a
Wolverine eleven made up largely of
inexperienced first year men. As a
result State may rule a slight fa-
vorite when the game starts at 2 p.m.
The 1936 State team is reputed
to be slower than the Bachman-
cached club of a year ago which
defeated Michigan, 25-6, but un-
doubtedly packs just as much power
in its plays as ever and also boasts
an excellent aerial attack that is sure
to be #unleashed if the field is dry.
Against Wayne a week ago the Spar-
tans completed every pass attempted,
and this has resulted in Kipke drill-
ing his men hard during the past few
days on pass defense.
Loiko Plays End
Kipke said last night that unless
he changed his mind just before game
time the same lineup he named
Thursday will start against the Spar-
tans. On this team are four soph-
omores and two juniors who because
of an injury and ineligibility saw no
action at all last year.
The eyes of all Michigan support-
ers will be on these six men who will
be performing for the first time on
Stadium sod in actual competition.
It is these newcomers to the lineup
that the coaches are depending upon
to carry the Wolverines through their
"suicide" schedule in a winning fa-
shion. The sophomores in the lineup
will be Loiko at left end, Janke at left
tackle, Brennan at left guard and
Levine the quarterback. Cooper, left
half, and Marzonie, right guard, are
the juniors who will be making their
first appearance in a Michigan game
this afternoon.
Three Veteran Linemen
Capt. Matt Patanelli, one of the
country's outstanding ends, has been
:hifted to the right end of the line
to make way for the sophomore Loiko
who with his great passing ability
will be a continual offensive threat.
The two other veteran linemen be-
sides Patanelli are Joe Rinaldi at
center and Mel Kramer, right tackle.
Rinaldi has so far shown more ability
than the highly touted John Jordan,
sophomore who last spring was
awarded the Chicago Alumni Award

efforts of two fine bands between the
