Annual Affair
Attracts 1,000 State High
School Pupils; Bursley
Lauds Union's Work
Ruthven Tells Them
To Know Institution
University Day, planned -to attract
State high school students to the
campus of their University, proved
sufficiently successful to insure its
continuance annually, Herbert Wolfe,1
'37, president of the Union, conduct-'
ing the affair, said late yesterday. }
Frederick V. Geib, '38F& C, chair-
man of the committ e for the Union,
estimated the turnout at nearly 1,000
students.
"At first," he said, "the crowd was
so large, we were gravely pressed for
;uides to conduct the pupils around
the campus. A consensus of those
who appeared indicated that the day
was a complete success."
Pontiac Captures Prize
The program began at 9 a.m. when
students gathered at the League and
Union to go on sightseeing trips and,
see the Engineering Open House.
Consultations occupied the morning,
with a luncheon at noon. The after-
noon was devoted to athletic demon-
strations and a Carillon concert.
At the luncheon in the Union,
which 250 students attended, Presi-
dent Ruthven urged those present to
acquaint themselves with their col-
leges.,,
"You must concern yourself," he
told them, "as good"citizens with in-
stitutes of higher learning so that you
may better meet the problems of to-
morro W.,"
"Many students about to enter col-
lege don't know where they're going,"
he continued, "many of those who at-
tend college don't know where they
are, and when they are outside, they
don't know where they have been."
Give. Carillon Concert

the day by the School of Music and

sociation, Pontiac High School of

HENDAYE, Franco-Spanish Fron-
tier, May 1 .-(P)-Anxious Basques
and willing British skippers worked
against weighty odds tonight to evac-
uate Bilbao's non-combatants beyond
the range of Spanish insurgent bombs
and cannon.
Refuge around the Bay of Biscay's
bend in France for some children
was assured when the masters of nine
British freighters in Bilbao harbor
volunteered to evacuate as many as
possible from the imminent menace
df bombardment and siege.
But a shortage of ships and in-

refusal to respect foreign refugee ves-
sels running his Bay of Biscay gaunt-
let menaced the success of a mass mi-
gration.
Time also became a factor when
Gen. Franco arrived on the northern
front to take personal command of
his troops, poised about ten miles east
of Bilbao on the Durango-Guernica
line.
Government and insurgent reports
from the front conflicted. Defense
officers declared their lines, reorgan-
ized and firmly entrenched, had
brought the attack to a halt. Insur-
;ent communiques said the basques
had fallen back to their last defense
lines and were digging in to stand off
an offensive against the Basque cap-
ital, Bilbao, itself.
In the face of an expected urgent
need for speed in removing Bilbao's
noncombatants and a scarcity of
ships in which to carry them in the
rough Bay of Biscay, .removal even
of the 150,000 mentioned by French
and British officials "as their goal
seemed unlikely.

strike that threatened to paralyze the
huge motion picture industry and
send 10,000 studio workers from their#
jobs, gathered momentum slowly to-
day.
Saturday ordinarily is a slack-pe-
riod in the industry, so the effect of
employees already called out on strike
was scarcely noticeable.
There was a scattering of pickets at
department store by a strike which
the situation seemed normal.
