staggering far back in fifth place
with only 18%/2 points behind a sur-
prising Iowa with 20 1/3 and Ohio
State with 19.
The meet produced three new loop
standards in the mile, two-mile and
high jump, and Michigan's big hurdle
ace Elmer Gedeon tied the American
record o. 8.6 in the high hurdles fall-
ing a tenth short of the Big Ten rec-
ord for the 70-yard barriers.
In the semi-final heat of the high
hurdles, Stan Kelley after leading
the entire route, tripped on the last
barrier and crashed to the track
leaving the entire burden of placing
Michigan in the hurdles on lanky El-

Education's Job
Is Adjustment
Dr. Purdom, Mrs. Hayes
Lecture At Concudiiga
Occupational Meeting ;
Concluding the week-long confer-a
ence on Guidance and Occupational
Information, Dr. DeWitt S. Morgan,
superintendent of schools in Indian-1
apolis,Ind., told an audience of 150a
persons in a luncheon address at the
Union yesterday that education's job
is to turn out individuals well ad-
justed to modern life, a task that
standardized mass productive tech-
nique cannot accomplish. "
"We measure an individual's worth
not by what he knows, but by what het
can do," said Dr. Morgan, adding1
that the tragedy of modern education
is that it turns individuals out into
the world without completing theirE
adjustment to the complexities of1
The problem that we face, ac-
cording to Dr. Morgan, is essentially
one of economy in education. Not
economy in any narrow sense, he
said, but true utilization of all the
facilities available to provide the best
possible education for youth.
lDr. T. Luther Purdom, director of
the University Bureau of Appoint-
ments and Occupational Informa-
tion, delivering the first lecture of
Sthe day, stressed a widening of the
guidance field to aconmliodate the
individual and his adjustment to life.
Dr. Purdom, who planned the con-
ference, showed that 85 per cent of
all job discharges come from causes
other than lack of knowledge and'
ability, and made a plea for the
widening of the scoe of modern cdu-
cation to include guidance that would
adjust the individual.
Following Dr. Purdon's talk there
was an address by Mary H. S. Hayes.

Held As Cause
Of Nazi Coup
Germany's sweep into Austria was
precipitated by Schuschnigg's tragic
tactical error in announcing a na-
tional plebiscite before the conver-
sations between London, Paris' and
Rome had reached the point where
Mussolini might have been induced
to exert a moderating influence up-
on Hitler, in the opinion of Prof.
Howard M. Ehrmnann of the history
"It is all too apparent," Professor
Ehrman said in an interview yes-
terday, "that the former chancellor
of Austria was too sanguine in his
expectation of support from Italy."
Hitler, he added, felt himself free to
act unhindered in view of the Rome-
Berliln axis, the ministerial crisis in
France and the slow progress of the
Anglo - French negotiations with
From present indications Hitle
seems to have diagnosed the Euro-
pean situation correctly, Professor
Ehrmann stated. "Despite diplo-
matic protests and popular resent-
ment outside Germany, he is not
likely to meet any serious opposi-
"Mussolini was in a difficult po-
sition," Professor Ehrmann declared.
"He had to choose between not op-
posing Hitler and acting contrary to
Italian interests, or opposing Hitler
and finding himself isolated. If an
agreement with Great Britain and
France had been on the road to con-

Is Sentence For 3 More,
MOSCOW, March I3.-(Sunday)-
(P-Eighteen of 21 defendants 'were
sentenced to death today in Moscow's
greatest treason trial.
Those whose lives were spared,
were: Christian Rakovsky, former
ambassador to France who was sen-
tenced to 20 years imprisonment; S.
A. Bessonoff, former member of the
Soviet trade delegation to Berlin, 15
years, and D. D. Pletnyeff, heart spe-
cialist, 25 years.
Those who must die-former high-
ranking Bolshevists accused of trea-
son and murder at the behest of for-
eign powers-will have at most five
days to live.
Three days will be given them fort
the judges to weigh their appeals and
two more days must elapse before1
they are placed before the firing
squad. However, if precedent is fol-
lowed, the condemned men will be ex-
ecuted within 24 hours.
Among those sentenced to death
was Nikolai Bukharin, chronicler of
the red revolution who electrified the
last session of the long trial with a
spell-binding defense.
Among the other one-time high
ranking Soviet leaders to be shot are
Qenrikh G. Yagoda, former chief of
the dreaded secret police; Alexis I.
Rykofi., premier of the Soviet Union
for 10 years who succeeded Lenin; and
N. N. Krestinsky, former first as-
sistant foreign commissar.

Fuehrer Proclaims Union

inamberlain Plans For
Popular Endorsement Of
A StrongForeign Polity
A nglo-German Pact
Viewed As Unlikely
LONDON, March 12.-(P)-Adolf
Hitler's bold Nazi seizure of Austria
today thrust the fate of Czechoslo-
vakia squarely before Great Britain
and France.
The British cabinet in an emer-
gency session weighed the possibility
of armed aid to France in the event
the independence of the war-created
republic was threatened by Germany.
In some quarters there was a sug-
gestion that Chamberlain might be
planning a snap general election to
seek endorsement for a stronger Brit-
ish foreign policy, possibly including
a promise of armed aid for Czecho-
Butkmost informed sources indicat-
ed the Prime Minister might sign his
own political "death warrant" if he
faced the country before public opin-
ion swung around sharply from the
present isolationist stand.
A communique issued after the cab-
inet meeting made it evident that any
Anglo-German agreement now was
out of the question.
The presence of German troops at
the Brenner Pass and their meeting
with the Italian frontier garrison also
symbolized to many Britons prospec-
tive failure of Chamberlain's month-
old attempt to bring the Fascist na-
tion into a friendly agreement.
Maginot Line Prepares
PARIS, March 12.--uP)-Troops
manning the powerful Maginot line
defenses facing the German border
tonight were held to their posts as
France took an increasingly grave
view of the European crisis.
French officials meanwhile sought
to convince Great Britain it was nec-
essary for mutual safety to take a
joint stand to discourage any German
encroachment on Czechoslovakia.
Premier-Designate Leon Blum at
the same time gave up attempts to
form a national union Government of
all parties and sought desperately to
recreate a People's Front Cabinet
to give the country a ministry.
His proposal to include Communists
in a Cabinet for the first time brought
almost United disapproval from Cen-
ter and Right groups in theChamber
of Deputies.

uce 's Council
Gives Approval
To Hitler Move
ROME, March 13.-(Sunday)-(IP)
-Italy's Fascist Grand Council gave
isapproval today to Adolf Hitler's
Nazification of Austria.,
The Council's approval was ex-
pressed in a communique issued after
it had received Hitler's promise that
German expansion to the south would
stop at the Italian frontier.
In a personal letter to Premier
Mussolini Hitler embodied a similar
guarantee to France, but gave no as-
surances that he would respect fron-
tiers of other countries.
Italy Does Not Interfere
Hitler's letter, which he sent to
Mussolini by special emissary, was
read to the Council by Count Gale-
azzo Ciano, foreign minister.
The foreign minister informed the
council that Italy had rejected a
French proposal for concerted ac-
tion in the Austrian situation.
"The Italian Government has, for
obvious reasons, determined not to
interfere in any way in Austrian in-
ternal affairs," the Council's com-
munique said.
Plebiscite Not Approved
"The Grand Council' emphasizes'
especially that the (Austrian) plebis-
cite was ordered' without previous
notice by Schuschnigg.
"Not only was it not suggested,. but
not even approved by the Italian
Government which had no knowledge
of it, neither with regard to method
nor substance."
Ciano had indicated that Italy had
no responsibility for recent 'Austrian

Hitler Addresses Cheering
Austrian, Throngs; Says
His Mission Is Fulfilled
Frontier Is Closed
To Prevent Exodus
VIENNA, March 12,- P) -Adolf
Hitler joined Austria and Germany
tonight and defied the world to part
He proclaimed this new pan-Ger-
man union from a Linz balcony to
cheering thousands.
As Hitler spoke, Nazi forces swept
through tiny Austria to re-make the
map of Europe and rouse new fears
of European war. Troops came by
land and by air,
"Any other attempt to part this
people will be in vain," the triumph-
ant Fuehrer told wildly cheering
throngs massed to welcome his re-
turn to his native land and fulfill-
ment of the long-dreamed union of
Germany and her southern neighbr.
'Divine' MISsion
Declaring it his qdivine snlsson
to return Austria to the German fath-
erland, bare-headed Hitler, cld .
an army overcoat, told the 0rowd
"Your presence is testi-Qny It Is ot
the wish of only a few to'found 1els
pan-Germany but is the' will of the
German people itself."
"It would be fine also if some of our
well known internatioina seekers-
after-truth could not only see tei
truth here but also recogziize.it."
The new Nazi Chancellor of 'Als-
tria, Arthur Seysz-Inquart, greeted
Hitler by proclaiming annulmerit' of
the Treaty of St. Germiain which fpr-
bade union of, Germany' atnd Austria.
The Fuehrer saved for tomorrow
a triumphal entry into Vienna.
All Austri Is Nai '
All Austria ent 144. Federal,
provincial and' municipal. 'govern-
ments, were taken over ly Nazis.
Austrian Army troops not only
stood by, but also fraternied with
the invading legions.
A wave of arrests struck fear to
thousands of" Austrians- Cathlics,
Jews, Socialists and former Austrian
Government chieftains alike.
Austria's frontiers were closed
quickly to prevent a mass exodus of
those who fear Naziism.
The Nazi Government forbade
sending money outside the country,
under heavy penalties.
Schusehnigg Imprisoned
The Chancellor Hitler forced out of
office, Kurt Schuschnigg, was im-
prisoned in Belvedere Palace sur-
rounded by 2.000 Storm Troopers and
50 police. Nazis said the guards were
for "his own protection."
In cities the Nazis assumed control
of telegraph, telephone and radio
communications. Strict censorship
was imposed.
Newspapers immediately felt the
Nazi fist.
The province's former governor,
Franz Rehrl, was led away gtill pro-
testing in his nightgown.
Vienna's police chief estimated 1,-
100 persons had beey arrested Fri-
day night, most of them Fatherland
Front officials and others who asked
moderation as Naziism caime to Aus-
Fatherland Front pissolved
The Fatherland Front, formerly
Austria's only legal political party
and the organ which attempted to
dam the Nazi stream, was dissolved.
Though Vienna 'factories closed,
they opened early in the day under
guard of storm troopers armed with
cat-o-nine-tails with which they
flogged Socialist-inclined workers
who appeared unenthusiastic,
Public service employes hastily
changed red and white rosettes of
the Fatherland Front for Nazi arm-
Others who appeared loath to show
swastikas on their homes were or-
dered to at once.
