prisoner of war according to interna-
tional law. We request that the State
Department make enquiries to deter-
mine Neafus' status."

Crisler Gets
Loud Cheers
In Debut Here
Coach Insists Upo Team s
'Moral Backing'; Wants
Fani iiar Associations
New Aide Appelar
With Grid Mentor
More than 4,000 students, faculty
members and townspeople crowded
into Hill Auditorium last ight to
welcome Fritz Crisler and his new
coaching staff, and hear the new
head football coach say he didn't
come to Michigan to lose.
Midst cheers and applause that
have seldom been equalled in the
huge auditorium, Coach Ciisler de-
clared, "Taking the tradition, her-
itage and material at hand, I cannot
but transform them into something
on the gridiron."
He said that he could not promise
or pledge anything but fighters on
the football field. "I will make no
super demands of my men," the
Coach shouted, "but I insist upon 100
per cent moral courage and backing
from each team member."
The new coach said that he wanted
to be associated with Michigan and
be a part of Michigan from now on.
"When you see me 'or any of my
staff on the street, call us by our
nicknames--Fritz, Clarence, Dick or
Marty," he said,
Preceding Crisler's talk, the other
new coaches addressed the crowd.
Backfield Coach Earl Martineau ex-
pressed his pleasure at being here,
and promised to give Michigan as
good a backfield as he could; End
Coach Campbell Dickson gave his
pledge of full cooperation, loyalty
and effort to Michigan and Line
Coach Clarence Munn promised to
give Michigan the best he had.
Fred Janke, '39, captain of next
year's team also pledged his best for
Michigan.
Michael Gorman, editor of the Flint
Journal, acted as master of cere-
monies for the evening, and the Var-
sity cheerleaders were vociferously
present.
The high point of the band's per-
formance of the evening was the
playing of the "Crisler Medley," com-
prised of songs of the University of
Chicago, the University of Minnesota,
Princeton University and "The Vic--
tors." Crisler has coached at all the
schools honored by the medley.
Michigan cheers, led by the varsity
cheerleaders, were given intermit-
tently throughout the entire program,
and the crowd responded in a manner
unequalled in any pep rallies of the
past few years.
Don Siegel, '39E, varsity tackle, and.
Helen Bak, '38, were winners of the
prizes given away with the numbered
programs of the evening.
Meeting Of Student
Senate To Be Today
The Student Senate will meet at
7:30 p.m. today in Room C, Haven
Hall. Students and faculty members
are invited to attend the session.
The report of the Rules Committee
will- be considered, and a resolution
equesting the State Department to
investigate the status of Ralph Nea-
fus, '36F&C, may be presented for
Senate action.
The Senate will also consider an-
swering questions in a nation-wide
poll on national and international
problems being conducted by the
Brown Daily Herald of Brown

University.

Beer Jackets,
Love Dreams'
Herald Spring
Spring arrived yesterday bringing
with it beer jackets, one-man classes
and absent-minded professors.
It was rumored that a rooming
house owner on Thompson Street was
seen washing windows and chinking
ceiling cracks with cardboard. The
steps of Angell Hall held a capacity
crowd of 36 freshmen and one gen-
uine B.M.O.C. Local oases, libraries
and theatres were deserted.
A telephone survey of male stu-
dents revealed that the fancies of 7,-
400 had turned to love, while 68
others were occupied with mid-se-
mester bluebooks.
Church Faces
Girirave Crisis,
Crane Asserts
World Pointing To War,
Yet No Remedy Sought,
Loud Lecturer Claims
The present world crisis is hurling
a truculent challenge at Christianity,
said Dr. Henry Hitt Crane, this year's
speaker for the Martin Loud annual
lecture series in a talk yesterday af-
ternoon at the Union Ballroom.
In spite of the fact that everybody
wants peace desperately, he stated,
the world is pointing to wa and sui-
cide and nothing is done about it.
In his discussion of the government's
navy building program, he branded
Roosevelt "stark mad." And yet, he
added, he gets his sanction from pro-
fessed Christians.
There is only one legitimate atti-
tude for Christians, Dr. Crane ex-
plained. They should be able to "take
it" in times of stress, as the early
Christians did in the first two or
three centuries. He praised Neimul-
ler, German minister imprisoned for
his opposition to the Nazi regime, for
daring to stand up where many others
fell.
It is only in the movies, stories and
theatre that the righteous receive
material rewards, he claimed. In
real life, he said, the consequences of
leading a Christian life cannot be
measured by am physical standard.
Dr. Crane will give the second in
his series of lectures at 4:15 p.m.
today at the Union Ballroom and at
7:30 pm. in the Methodist Church.
He will also give an informal talk at
a luncheon in the church and will
address a meeting of the Fellowship
of Reconciliation at 9 p.m. at Lane
Hall.

To InVestigate Condition
Of Ann Arbor Press
Local Establishment
Is Testing Statute
Circuit Judge George S. Sample has
refused to allow the National Labor
Relations Board to hold a hearing in
the Washtenaw County Court room,
the Daily was informed yesterday.
At the same time the Daily learned
from Lansing that Governor Murphy,
in response to complaints at the
awarding of a contract to the Ann
ArborPress by the Upper Peninsula
Development Bureau, had ordered
Executive Secretary Norman Hill to
investigate the conditions under
which the Ann Arbor Press was oper-
ating and determine whether or not
the firm was living up to the re-
quirements pledged in a sworn state-
ment to the State in September.
Under the terms of Public Act 153 the
work onState printing contracts can
be awarded only to shops where the
wage levels equal those prevailing in
the locality.
Complaint Due Soon
The National Labor Relations
Board complaint against the Ann Ar-
bor Press, charged with violation of
the Wagner Act, is "about to be is-
sued," according to Harold Crane-
field, NLRB attorney of the Detroit
office.
Cranefield and representatives of
the Ann Arbor Press and the Inter-
national Typographical Union, which
has been conducting a strike against
the local printing plant for more than
a month, conferred yesterday in an
effort to secure the company's con-
pliance with the Wagner Act. No
results were announced.
If the complaint is issued, the hear-
ing will begin March 31 in the Union.
However, conferences looking toward
compliance with the Act are always
welcomed by the NLRB evei after a
complaint is issued and up to the
time the trial examiner makes his
"intermediate report," Cranefield said
yesterday.
- Four Charges Listed
Charges filed against the Ann Ar-
bor Press by the union include four
"unfair labor practices" and a re-
quest under Section 9 (c) of the Act
for certification by the Board as the
representative of the majority of em-
ployes in the composing room, which
would entitle the union to be the
exclusive agent of the composing
room employes in collective bargain-
When contacted last night Judge
Sample declared that he never per-
mitted outside groups to use the court
because of the press of business. He
pointed out that when asked by a
representative of the NLRB for the
use of the court's facilities he had said
that not only could he not permit
it for a few weeks but not even for
one day.
Spring Concert
This Thursday
Glee Club Climaxes Year
With Annual Program

Michigan's much-publicized Men's
Glee Club will climax the most ac-
tive year in its history when it pre-
sents its annual complimentary
spring concert Thursday night in Hill
Auditorium.
Preparations are being made for a
capacity crowd, according to club of-
ficials. They believe the student
body will show unusual interest be-
cause the club has been acclaimed
as the best of its type in the coun-
try by critics in a number of cities
where concerts were given.
The program to be presented will be
divided into two portions, the first
will be composed of traditional works
while the second; "A Michigan Ka$
leidoscope," will be intended primari-
ly for student consumption. A spe-
cial feature will be the appearance of
the Midnight Sons quartet.
