Another feature of today's com-
petition was the dethroning of two
of last year's individual champions,
Daniel Zehr of Northwestern Univer-
sity in the 150-yard back-stroke and
Ray Walters of Iowa in the 50-yard
free style.
One Record Broken
While exceptionally fast times were
turned in for most of today's events,
only one record was bettered, that in
the 300-yard, medley relay prelimin-
aries when Michigan churned the
distance in 2:57.8, breaking its own
mark of 2:58.2 made in the 1936 Col-
legiates. .
The Wolverine medley aggregation
of Fred Cody, Jack Kasley and Ed
Kirar, capped its record breaking per-
formance in the preliminaries by
taking the finals in the event handily,
beating out Ohio State in 2:58.4.
Kirar became the new champion in
the 50-yard free-style event when he
splashed to the finish line in :23.2,
just three-tenths of a second short of
the record for this race.
Michigan counted 10 points in the
short race -when Waldemar Tomski,
a team mate, breezed in just behind
Kirar. 1Z. Penn of Yale was third,

pion, was able to gain no better than

Hitch-Hiking Bill
Attacked In Iowa
Following the proposed "anti-
hitch-hiking" legislation now being
considered by the Iowa state legis-
lature, students at the University of
Iowa circulated petitions to prevent
the passing of this bill, according to
a report from the Daily Iowan. t
The report went on to say that
Mark K. Baker with the aid of four
other students has cooperated with1
a movement begun at Iowa Wesleyan
College in Mt. Pleasant which is also
directed against the bill.
Tom Bell, president of the Wes-
leyan student body, is quoted in The
Daily Iowan as saying that he was
starting the movement, because he
believes "hitch-hiking is a vested in-

terest which all college students must

to his people in order to remain in
power, according to Prof. Preston
W. Slosson of the history department.
Orating with a degree of militancy
that he had not displayed since he
won the war in Ethiopia, Mussolini
attacked the Edglshpress, the Eg-
lish clergy and declared that Italy
and not Britain had won last year's
siege of sanctions.
France Is Keystone
Though this sudden attack on
Britain in a period of cordiality may
have serious implications, Prof. Slos-
son believes that France occupies a
more essential position in the embro-
glio than England. France is endan-
gered in the readily conceived
struggle between fascism, represented
by Germany and Italy, and commu-
nism represented by Russia, he said,
because of France's connections with

Federal Action
Is IDemranded
To End Striles
Bostonian Group Under
A. L. Lowell Gives Senate
-Derisive Statement
WASHINGTON, March 26.-()-
A demand .for immediate federal ac-
tion to end sit-down strikes came to-
night from A. Lawrence Lowell, presi-
dent emeritus of Harvard University.
In a telegram to the Senate and
Vice-President Garner, Lowell and a
group of other prominent Bostonians
declared that "a few words of coun-
sel" by the president several weeks
ago would have ended what now
"challenges the supremacy of the
government itself."
The message said:
"Armed insurrection-defiance of
law, order and duly elected authority
-is spreading like wildfire.
"It is rapidly growing beyond con-
trol. What determined action by
the Governor of Michigan several
weeks ago, or a few words of counsel
by the president, would have ended
summarily, now challenges the su-
premacy of government itself."
They contended no question of the
right of labor to "liberal wage and
healthful working conditions" is in-
If minority groups can seize prem-
ises illegally and hold them "by vi-
olence and threatened bloodshed,"
they declared, "then freedom and lib-

three hostile powers, Professor Slos-
son said.
Mussolini's outbreak was also
termed significant by Professor Slos-
son, in view of the recently conclud-
ed non-intervention pact which may
cause France to reconsider her pas-
siveness in the Spanish war.
A Dictator-s Device
The fiery premier's outburst was
not one of resentment nor was it
ostensibly to make for trouble, he
explained, but simply the device of
a dictator to fortify hris position in
the eyes of the people. Comparing a
dictatorship with a democracy, he
pointed to the use of elections in the
latter to confirm the position of a
mian in power.
"The hereditary monarch has a
similar assurance through his inheri-
tance, but the dictator unlike either
the leader of a democracy or a hered-
itary monarchy must establish his
prestige by such devices as the one
just employed by Mussolini."
TWA A ttributes
Plane Disaster
To Icy Wings
Safety Devices To Prevent
Formations Of This Kind
Will Be Developed
PITTSBURGH, March 26.-(A)-
Two separate investigations today at-
tributed the crash of the Transcon-
tinental and Western Airlines plane
in which 13 persons were killed to the
formation of ice on the air liner's
control equipment.
While federal and state aeronau-
tical inspectors searched through the
splintered wreckage of the giant twin-
motored transport that nosed into a
cornfield last night, officials of TWA
said ice had formed on the ailerons
and sent the plane out of control.
Dr. John J. McLean, director of the
Allegheny County Airport where the
plane had attempted to land a few
moments before the crash, said the
disaster was caused by ice collecting
on the wings.
L. C. Fritz, eastern region superin-
tendent of the airline, said new safety
measures would be developed to pre-
vent a repetition of the tragedy, de-
c laring:
"Never before in tests or in sched-
uled flying has ice formed on the
ailerons to an extent that it inter-
fered with riormal flight.
"However, the unusual ice form a-
tion causing this accident indicates
that protection against icing must be
extended to include ailerons, and
TWA is taking immediate steps to de-
velop this additional safeguard."
Workmen burned the twisted fus-
ilage of the plane late today after fed-
eral investigators announced they had
completed their inspection of the
scene of the disaster. W. A. Ham-
ilton, superintendent of maintenance
for TWA, said the motors and in-
struments would be preserved for fur-
ther examination.
Company officials said only the ice
would explain why Pilot F. L. (Larry)
Bohnet and the 12 others crashed
to their deaths a few minutes after
he had circled the airport and radioed
that all was "okay."
From the debris of the demolished
liner came additional support of the
ice theory. Investigators reported
they found a postcard on which one
of the passengers, Miss Pauline Trask
a school teacher from Germantown,
Pa., had written to a f~iend:
"Arrived safely-6:15 p.m.-pulling
out of ice storm."
Investigators estimated this was
written about half an hour before
the crash.

Oadds Are 1,000 T'o 1
Against Repetition
Of TWA Air Crash
Odds of 1,000 to 1, or even 10,000
to 1 prevail against a repetition of the
freak air conditions that caused the;
crash of the TWA airliner piloted by
Lawrence Bohnet, former University
student, outside of Pittsburgh on
Wednesday, according to George
Downs, flying instructor at Ann Ar-
bor airport.
Apparently the accident occured
when, due to icing conditions in a
very small area, the ailerons froze
and Bohnet was unable to prevent
the ship from spinning, Downs said.
In normal flight position even under
the worst conditions the ailerons are
almost never affected, and only a
combination of exceptional weather
in a small zoneand the turning po-
sition of the plane could have been
responsible, Downs declared.
Bohnet, who was well known at the
airport during his two years at Mich-
igan, had a reputation even then as
an extremely capable pilot. He
leaned to fly at the Naval Training
station at Pensacola, Fla. and flew
in the naval reserve while up north.
Enrolled in the electrical engineer-
ing department here, Bohnet did not
graduate, lacking a few hours for a
degree when he quit school for com-
mercial flying. While a student he
had a 2.7 average.

Agreement Hinges

90,000 Workers Are Idle;

Strike Settlement

Walter P. Chrysler, chairman of
the Chrysler' corporation, whose
eight factories in Michigan were'
occupied by sit-down strikers,
looked happy as he emerged from
a conference in Lansing with John
L. Lewis, CIO director, and Gov.
Frank Murphy.

Spiritual Must Share
The Understanding

LANSING, March 26.--( )--Gover-
nor Frank Murphy said tonight
'progress was made" in negotiations
toward settlement of the Chrysler
strike, which has kept at least 10,000
persons idle.
The governor, emerging :rom the
fifth session of the conference in
which Walter P. Chrysler, chairman
of the corporation bearing his name,
and John L. Lewis, head of the Coin-
mittee for Industrial Organization,
which is supporting the striking un-
ion, declined to say final agreement
was near.
"Not a great deal separates them,"
said Murphy, appearing tired and
worn, a condition he attributed to a
bad cold. "Progress was made. Both
sides are striving earnestly to reach
a settlement."
Conference To Continue
Originally today's conferences were
to have adjourned at noon until Tues-
Asked whether the continuation of
negotiations tomorrow was indicative
of approximate settlement, the gov-
ernor said, "I wouldn't say so."
Murphy said both Chrysler and
Lewis would return to New York Sat-
urday night because of personal obli-
gations, but indicated they would re-
turn to Lansing if no agreement had
been reached by then.
"This conference will continue until
a settlement is reached," he, said.
Adding to the belief that a Chry-
sler bargaining pact may be near was
the fact that Lewis, president of the
United Mine Workers of America,
wishes to be present at New York
conferences on a bituminous mine
wage and working contract.
Settlement of this dispute, with a
provision for return to work pending
adjustment of other demands relat-
ing to seniority, wages and working
conditions, would start production
wheels moving again in ten Chrysler
plants, eight of them evacuated by
strikers in Detroit Thursday.
Briggs Would Eid Idleness
In addition to the more than 60,-
000 Chrysler employes such aa az
rangement would return to their jobs,
about 19,400 Briggs Manufacturing
Company workers, making bodies for
Chrysler cars, would end a period of
enforced idleness.
Governor Murphy has conferred
with officials of the Hudson Motor
Car Co. at Detroit, whose more than
10,000 workers are idle because of a
sit-down strike, and of the Reo
Company at Lansing, where a sim-
ilar strike has thrown 2,200 employes
of the truck manufacturing concern
out of work. He is known to believe
settlements in these strikes may fol-
low a Chrysler agreement.

An understanding of heredity is im-
possible until science takes the spir-
itual into consideration or religion ac-
cepts what science has to offer, Dr.
B. Jimenez told an open meeting of
the Theosophical society last night
in the League.
Tracing the history of heredity in I
the relation to science, Dr. Jimenez
showed that while science has been
able to show how physical traits can
be transmitted from parent to son,
the spiritual or soul qualities are
the result of the reincarnation in the
body of the child which are the result
of a number of stages of growth which
range from the savage to the spir-
itual, or final, stage.
The spiritual can develop wisdom
from experience, respond to inspira-
tion, select environment and govern
reactions, and attain to spiritual
unity, while the physical cells can
keep the body intact and repair it
when necessary, Dr. Jimenez stated.
The talk was the first of a series,
the second of which, dealing with re-
incarnation in the light of heredity,
will be given April 23.
A forecast of a cold Easter was is-
sued yesterday to a nation already
shivering in temperatures scaling
down to 42 degrees below normal.

In Olden Days They Had A Word
For It, And It Was Slang, Too

The weird epithets commonly
mouthed by the contemporary Mich-
igan undergraduate may be indigen-
ous to the 20th century but according
to an issue of the Michigan Alumnus
of a decade before the turn of the cen-
tury former generations too had their
peculiar patois.
The female of the species it was
who bore the greatest number of
soubriquets. If a young lady were
studying to be a doctor for example,
"hen-medic" became her monicker,
whereas if she were simply a first-
year student she resolved herself into
a "freshlet." A delightful or charm-
ing person was invariably appraised
a "la I" w rsmetimes even a "lu In"

uppers." A campus reprobate was
adjudged a "wild Willy" while a
writer was doomed as an "inkslinger."
The piece of pie which one received
at his boarding house was always ter-
ribly "skinchy" in size, whereas the
landlady's son invariably got a "soc-
dolger." No matter how small the
portion, one "sank his lunch hooks"
in with alacrity.
A comparison of the slang in vogue
at the time at other colleges reveals
that each campus had an indigenous
vocabulary. Whereas at Michigan a
person under the influence of liquor
had a "jag on" or was simply "teed
up" at Amherst there were various
stages of inebriation consisting of
"semi-pleased" (about half full)
"nleased" (rather full) and "nar-
