To Peace Council

Peace Council last night in the Union
that the four types of peace advo-

their efforts next year and use the
Peace Council as a clearing house.

said, are those who attribute war to
economic causes; pacifists who for!
ethical or religious reasons would not
participate in a war; supporters of
an international political organiza-

and the group that believes prepared-
ness and greater armaments will in-

Gophers Down
Michigan Nine
By 4-0 Score
'By CARL GERSTACKER
Minnesota's Gophers, behind the
six hit pitching of sophomore Howie
Schultz, took the opening game of
their two-game series with Coach
Ray Fisher's Varsity nine yesterday
by a 4-0 score. The two teams will
meet again at 4 p.m. today in the
contest that will betMichigan's last
Big Ten game of the current sea-
son.
The Gophers, called the "hitless
wonders" of the Conference, failed to
live up to their reputation and un-
leashed an 11 hit barrage that in-
cluded a home run by Ray King while
the Wolverines were able to garner
but six singles.
King hit his circuit blow in the
second inning and the count re-
mained at 1-0 until the sixth when
Minnesota got to Herman Fishman's
offerings for five hits and three runs.
Uram opened the inning with an
easy pop up to Fishman but Fossom
and King followed with singles that
put men on first and second. At this
point, Kundla hit a hard line drive
back at Herm that the chunky south-
paw leaped for but missed and the
ball traveled on out into centerfield
and Fossom scored the second Go-
pher run of the game, while Kundla
and King went on to second and
third.
Pirsch then scored King and Kund-
la with a hard single and went to
third on shortstop Lee's single. Leo

striving to shove the administrative
legislative program through to en-

of activity.
No. 1 on the program was civil serv-
ice, the re-writing of which has been
entrusted to a "policy committee" of
Democratic House members. Author-
itative sources said it would go from
the hands of the policy committee to
the State Affairs Committee, which
would report it on the floor 'of the

drafted by a civil service study com-

administration and headed by Prof.

When 78-year-old Associate Justice
Willis Van Devanter steps out of
his stately black robes on June 2, he
will be the first to retire and the
27th to resign from the century and
a half old United States Supreme
Court.
In the brief span of life of the
Court, as lives of government insti-
tutions go, 26 men have doffed their
judicial garments in voluntary resig-
nations. Justice Van Devanter's re-
tirement, however, is in accordance
with a law passed on March 1 of
this year allowing members of the
high bench who have served 10 years
to retire after the age of 70 and re-
ceive a pension of $20,000 annually.

While the Washington correspon-
dents and court experts of the coun-,
try participate in some harmless
speculation as to a liberal successor
there looms onto the governmental
horizon the rumor that the next to
retire will be Associate Justice Louis
D. Brandeis. -
In such an event the chances for
Gov. Frank Murphy's appointment
to the high court, making. him the
second member of the court from
Michigan, will be increased. The
only representative in the highest
chamber from the state was Henry
B. Brown who was sworn in on Jan.
6, 1891 and who resigned on May 28,
1906.
