Hitler Scores

At Versailles
Fuehrer In Reich Tourj
Assails Two Treaties AndI
The League Of Nations
Explains Austrian
Union To Crowds
LEIPZIG, Germany, March 26.-,
( ")--Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler again
took up the cudgels against the tat-
tered Treaty of Versailles today, sar-
castically scorning German frontiers
set up by the pact.
"Who imagined the great German
Reich would stop at the ridiculous
frontiers drawn at Versailles?" he
A crowd of 28,000 Saxons cheered
the Fuehrer in the second appearance
of his electioneering swing around
the Reich to convince the masses that
his union of Austria and Germany
was the "fulfillment of a thousand
year old dream."
"Does anyone believe the League
of Nations was founded to help small
and big nations?" he thundered.
"Does anyone believe there is any
such thing as international con-
To the "heils" of the wildly cheer-
ing crowd, Hitler explained the rea-
sons for Austro-German union along
lines expounded yesterday in his first
speech of the campaign at Koenigs-
He scorned both the Versailles and
Saint Germain treaties, which he said
forbade the plebiscite on self-deter-
mination in Austria because the pow-
ers of Europe did not regard it ex-
pedient that Germans should unite.
On the other hand, he said, they
insisted on the Saar plebiscite be-
cause 150,000 Frenchmen lived there.
(The rich Saar region, taken from
Germany after the World War and
set up under League of Nations con-
trol, was returned to Germany in the1
1936 plebiscite.)

For Michigras

Start Tuesday
The Michigras will not take place
formally until May 6 and 7 at Yost
Field House, but it will begin to as-
sume form at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the
Union when fraternity and sorority
representatives will haveĀ°a chance to
let their imaginations run rife at a
meeting called by booth chairman
Richard Fox, '39, to make plans for
the house booths.
A huge carnival with rides and side-
shows, the Michigras is being put on
this year to raise funds for the Wom-
en's Athletic Association's proposed
pool and the University Band which
hopes for a trip to Yale next year.
The Michigras committee is spon-
soring a contest among the houses
this year to determine the best side,
shows. Nine of last year's best money
winners will be retained. They are:
Chi Phi's "Rat Race," Alpha Kappa
Lambda's "Golf Putting Champion-
ship," Psi Upsilon's "Baseball Skill,"
Phi Delta Theta's "Weight Guessing
Contest," which made money despite
the fact that everyone won a cane,'
Delta Tau Delta's "Dodger," Sigma
Alpha Mu's "Dart Poker," Lambda
Chi Alpha's "Soda Pop Saloon," Phi
Sigma Delta's "Dart Gun" and Beta
Theta Pi's "Beef Trust."'
This year the honor societies will;
not have booths, according to Fox,
but will sponsor the rides. Last year
the best ride was received by Sphinx,
junior men's honorary society, which
lost $37 at a "gambling" booth.
Fox listed the following fraternities,
which he asks to send one representa-
tive to the meeting Tuesday to chair-j
man their booth: Alpha Delta Phi...
