PRICE FIVE CENTS

Tag Day Drive
Nets $1,000
To Camp Fund
Faculty, Fraternities May
Raise Yield To $1,500;-
More Than Last Year
Donations Pour In
DespiteRain, Cold
Despite rain and cold weather,
funds received yesterday in the an-
nual Fresh Air Camp Tag Day
amounted to an early estimate of
more than $1,000, it was reported
last night by William Barndt, '37,
chairman of the drive.
The amount was lower than the
goal of $2,000 set for the campaign,
but faculty and fraternity contribu-
tions to be received next week are
expected to raise the total to about
$1,500, he said. This is more than
was received last year.
Most of the, money from the drive
was taken on the campus, with sup-
plementary returns coming from the
business sections of the city in the
afternoon. A majority of the dona-i
tions came between 10 a.m. and 1
p.m., Barndt stated.
Falls Short Of Last Year
Even though falling. short of its
goal the campaign was termed a defi-
nite success yesterday by George Al-
der, director of the camp, in view of
the early downpours and cold weath-
er that kept students off the campus
most of the day.1
The main reason for the success,f
Alder explained, was that over
200 students took part in selling tags
throughout the day. Campus organ-c
izations sent members to posts on the
campus, and many students volun-
teered their services. Members of the
camp staff took part in the downtown
sections of town, helped in many
cases by boys who have been givent
summers at the camp. Alder praised
the work of Barndt, and Walter Lusz-
ki, '37.
Societys Thanked
The committee in charge of the
drive wishes to thank all persons who
aided in the success of the campaign.
Special commendation is due to stu-
dent volunteers who were recruited
largely from Michigamua, Sphinx,
Michigan Independents, Student
Christian Association, Cooperative
House, Wyvern, Mortarboard, Church
Guilds, The Daily and unaffiliated
solicitors, according to Barndt. The
donation of signs by the Swicherath
Sign Shop and Art V. Gillespie; pos-
ters and tags by Ann Arbor Press,
Athens Press, Craft Press, Davis &
Ohlinger, Edward Bros., Lowery
Printing, Millard Press; pails by Fish-t
er Hardware, Muehling & Lamphear,
and Schlenker Hardware; and co-f
operation of the business men has
been greatly appreciated Barndt said.t
The spring Tag Day was precededI
this year by a Boxing Show on April
1. A summer campaign will follow in
July.t

Bradley Notes
Idealism Trend'
In New Works
Readers And Writers Want
Something New, Believes
Pennsylvania Professor
The dawn of a new liealistic phil-
osophy supplanting the hard natural

realism of the post-war period was
pictured as the possible outlook of
contemporary American literature3
yesterday by Prof. Edward Sculley
Bradley of the University of Penn-
sylvania in a lecture on "Poetry and
Revolt in Post-War America."
"Readers and writers alike are
rather jaded," Professor Bradley
stated, "and are looking for some-'
thing new. For a score of years1
American literature has been one long
jeremiad, and now a new type of op-
timism is arising to supplant the
harsh realism of Sherwood Anderson,
Theodore Dreiser and others of their
school."
"We can look back now and ap-
praise the spirit behind post-war lit-
erature," he continued. "The twen-
ties were an age of revolt. A central
faith in God led to a weakening of'
faith in man himself." Professor
Bradley cited "poets of horror like1
Robinson Jeffers" and the degenerate
novels of William Faulkner and Er-
skine Caldwell as manifestations ofs
this spirit.
Professor Bradley described the
cycle of post-war novels, beginning
with Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio,"

Independents
To Back Debate
On Student Rule
Heads Of Extracurricular
Activities Will Present{
Ideas On Government
A debate upon the question of stu-
dent government will be held Wed-
nesday night at the Union sponsored
by the Independent Men's Organiza-
tion, it was announced yesterday.
The debaters will be chosen from
among those who have played an
active part in student government
during the past year. The probable
lineup will be: for student govern-
ment, William Barndt, '37, president
of the Independent Men's Organiza-
tion, and William Struve, '37, out-
going secretary of the Union, against
student government, Fred Warner
Neal, '37, former associate editor of
The Daily, and Herbert Wolf, '37, out-
going president of the Union.
The purpose of the debate, it was
explained, is to crystallize campus
opinion upon whether or not -the
students should have student govern-
ment, how inclusive it should be and
the most desirable set-up for the gov-
ernment, if it is decided that some
is desired.
Following the debate, the Inde-
pendents will submit to the Univer-
sity officials suggestions based upon
the ideas presented during the de-,
bate. All organizations now working
for or against student government
have been requested to contact the
Independent Men's organization in
care of the Union.

Lambie, his co-pilot on the trans-
port route as well as on the trans-
atlantic venture which began at
Floyd Bennett last Sunday, was
spruce and smiling.
"I am awfully glad to be back."
he said. "We are pretty tired. It was
a long trip."
Swio-Out May
Come Back As
A 'New' Custom
More Than 700 Seniors
Prepared For Swing;
Program Is Planned
Swing-out-one of the more mori-
bund of Michigan's dying traditions,
appears to stand a good chance of
staging a comeback this spring.
The index of this rising tide of ac-
ceptance is the rental to more than
700 seniors of caps and gowns to wear
for Swing-out, a week from tomor-
row,'according to Frank Dannemiller,
'37, who is in charge of the revival.'
An Old Custom
The custom of the seniors to
swing-out" in their caps and gowns
sometime before Commencement,
dates back to the days when the stu-
dent body attended chapel every
morning in the auditorium in Univer-
sity Hall, Dannemiller said. Five
years ago Swing-out was abolished,
he said, but a half-hearted and un-
successfulsattempt was made to re-
vive it last year.
Criticizing Swing-out in recent
years for their apparent lack of pur-
pose and organization, Dannemiller
said that Swing-out this year will
be more than a walk around the
Campus in a cap and gown.
Program To Be Given
"A program will be held in Hill
Auditorium at the conclusion of the
Campus swing," Danemiller said.
"Prof. A. D. Moore of the depart-
ment of electrical engineering of the,
engineering college and head mentor
of the college, will speak and the
presidents of the senior class in the
literary college and engineering col-
lege will speak," he said. Al Dewey
is the literary college president and
Gus Collatz is head of the engineer-
ing seniors.
Seniors that wish to rent caps and
Scan still do .so at Moe's, Roger's or
Van Boven's, Dannemiller said. This
opportunity will be extended until
Wednesday, he said.

Verdi's 'Aida'

Acclaim Rethberg,
List And Chorus
Ann Arbor's traditional May Fes-
tival will ceremoniously close tonight

Verdi's opera, "Aida," with a brilliant
vocal cast plus the Philadelphia Sym-
phony and the Choral Union under
the direction of Prof. Earl V. Moore,
director of the School of Music and
the May Festival.
An ovation yet unheard in the My
Festival thus far greeted the last ap-
pearance of Eugene Ormandy in the
May Festival as hie was called back
several times for encores. Addressing
the audience three times Mr. Or-
mandy thanked the audience for its!
appreciation. Ezio Pinza and Eliza-
beth Rethberg also received great ap-
plause, and were also called back sev-
eral times for encores as they exper-
ienced Ann Arbor persistency.
In the afternoon concert Eugene
List was royally welcomed and he,
too, was forced to give two encores.
The Young People's Festival Chorus
under Roxy Cowin added to the
success of the third concert.
In the fifth concert of the series'
this afternoon, Jose Iturbi will conduct
the orchestra for the first time in the
May Festival. Joseph Knitzer, young
violinist, will be the soloist during the
afternoon performance.
In tonight's concert Miss Rethberg;
Marion Telva, contralto, Arthur Car-
ron, tenor; Carlo Morelli, baritone, a
University alumnus; Mr. Pinza; and
Thelma Lewis, soprano, of the School
of Music, will offer the 4-act opera
"Aida." This afternoon Mr. Knitzer
will render Bruch's Concerto in G
minor and Ravel's "Tzigane" while
the orchestra will play Beethoven's
Symphony No. 2 in D major, Gail-
ardi's "Gauchacon Botas Nuevas," In-
termezzo from "Goyescas," by Gran-
ados, and de Falla's Dances from
"Three-Cornered Hat."
All of the vocalists appearing in the
May Festival are stars of the Metro-
politan Opera Company with the ex-
ception of Miss Lewis of the Univer-
sity School of Music faculty.

Johnny Simithers Pitches
Wolverines To First Win
In Four Big Ten Starts
LA FAYETTE, Ind., May 14.- (Spe-1
cial to The Daily)-Michigan finally
broke into the win column, after three
straight Conference losses, by de-
featig Purdue here today, 4 to 3.
The game was played in near-freez-
ing weather.
Johnny Smithers, making his Big
Ten debut, hurled super ball against
the Boilermakers, but was kept in
hot water by misplays in the Wol-
verine infield. He allowed only five
hits.
Michigan fought an uphill bittle
until the sixth, when the score was
tied. Then in the eighth, the Wol-
verines pushed across two runs, one

of which provided the margin of
victory.
In the ninth the Boilermakers made
a desperate bid for victory, when they
bunched three hits for one run and
had two men on base as pinchbatters
Mangas lined to Stevie Uricek for
the final out, the latter making a
great one-hand catch.
Purdue opened the scoring in the
first without a hit on two walks, a wild
pitch and an infield out, and added
another run in the third on a single,
and a sacrifice plus an error by Walt
Peckinpaugh.
Michigan came back for a lone
tally in the fourth on a walk, a field-
er's choice, another Walk and an in-
field hit by Bob Campbell. The Var-
sity added another in the sixth on
Uricek's single, an error by Poulos
and a ground ball to short off the bat
of Merle Kremer.
In the eighth Uricek singled, Krem-
er walked, and both advanced on
Danny Smick's fly to center.

Union Demands Exclusive
Bargaining Rights After
Early Agreement
'Fordisins' Advise
Against Unionizing
PITTSBURG, May 14.-(R)-Thou-
sands of cheering workers paraded
back to the Jones and Laughlin Steel
Corp Mills today, ending the greatest
walk-out in the last 18 years of steel
history.
Cheered by quick settlement of two
strikes today, union leaders prepared
to push demands for sole bargai'ning
rights against major independents in
the steel industry.
Tentative agreements were reached
to end the walk-outs which kept idle
27,000 employes of the Jones and
Laughlin Steel Corp. and more than
5,000 Pittsburgh Steel Co. workers.
Murray Calls Conference
Philip Murray, chairman of the
Steel Workers Organizing committee,
called his aids into conference today
to discuss the drive against other in-
dependent steel producers, with ex-
clusive collective bargaining rights as
a new goal. In earlier contracts the
SWOC asked for recognition only as
representing its membership.
A similar idea for the automobile
industry was indicated by Homer
Martin, president of the United Au-
tomobile Workers, as two of the three
strikes in General Motors Corp. plants
were ended.
In Detroit last night the tide of
unionism did not surge as it had a
few hours earlier in Pittsburgh, be-
cause the Ford Motor Co. took steps
against United Automobile Workers of
America's campaign to unionize its
workers by announcing tonight it
will distribute to all employes cards
bearing Henry Ford's labor views.
"Fordisms" 'Given
Harry H. Bennett, Ford personnel
director, said the cards, labeled
"Fordisms" will be distributed to the
company's 150,000 employes through-
out the country Monday.
Homer Martin, UAWA president,
announced that the union would open
its organization drive among Ford
workers formally next week.
Some selected "Fordisms" follow:
"A monopoly of jobs in this coun-
try is just as bad as a monopoly of
bread.
"What was the result of these
strikes? Merely that numbers of
men put their necks into an iron col-
lar. We're only trying to show who
owns thhe collar.
"Figure it out for yourself. If you
go into a union, they have got you
and what have you got?

Is it true that German Jews are be-

but their 3,000,000 brothers in Po-
land are facing an equally fatal ec-
onomic strangulation at the hands of
the Polish fascists, Dr. Bernard Hel-
ler, director of Hillel, declared yester-
day in an interview.
Dr. Heller, who returned this year
from a tour of eastern Europe, stated
that the political inequality of limit-
ing the number of Jewish representa-
tives in the Sejm or Polish Senate is
far overshadowed in seriousness by
the nationalists' "relentless war on

tically abolishing subsidies to Jewish
communal schools and is condoning
their slow disintegration. A "num-
erous clausus" prevails in colleges
.and universities, Dr. Heller explained,
and if a Jewish student does study
outside of Poland he has difficulty in
having his diploma officially recog-
nized.
The potential supply of wheat, coal,
cattle, timber and oil would more
than suffice Poland, Dr. Heller con-
tinued, but tariff barriers have killed
her export trade. Despite this-poten-
tiality, he said, millions of Polish
workers earn two or three zlotys (40
