Model League
Assembly To
Convene Here
24 Michigan Schools Are
Asked To Send Students
To 'League Of Nations'
11th Annual Session
Is Set ForMay 6, 7
Invitations have been extended to
24 Michigan colleges and junior col-
leges to send delegates to the 11th
annual Michigan Model Assembly of
the League of Nations, which will
meet May 6 and 7 in Ann Arbor.
This year's session will be in the
nature of an international confer-
ence, in that it will include repre-
sentatives of states, such as Germany
and Japan, who at the present time
are not adherents of the League of
Nations system as well as League
members, according to Alfred V.
Boerner, Grad., Secretary-General of
the Model Assembly.
The schools have been asked to
name delegates, select the countries
they would like to represent at the
conference and prepare to present a
stand consistent with that actually
held bythose nations.
The tentative agenda includes, ac-
cording to a tentative bulletin issued
by Boerner:
(1) Peaceful Change: Included in
this discussion will be revision of
treaties, redistribution of colonies
and the change of boundaries;
(2) Minorities;
(3) Reorganization of the League
of Nations: Revision of the Covenant
of the League and the future of in-
ternational cooperation in general;
(4) Rearmament: The financial as-
pects 'of the question, checks on its
progress to protect budgets and the
possibility of reconvening the Dis-
irmament Conference which has
never been finally adjourned.
Information to familiarize the dele-
gates with the procedure of the Con-
ference and the organization will be
given in a detailed announcement
soon to be issued, Boerners declared.
Bibliographies are being prepared
by the University Library Extension
Division and Will be sent out soon.
Drugs Discovered,
Eddy Tells Group
Discovery of two narcotic-like
chemicals which have the pain-kill-

addiction properties was announced
yesterday by Prof. Nathan B. Eddy of
the Pharmacy School at the opening
session of the annual convention of
the Federation of American Societies
for Experimental Biology in Balti-

but great progress has been made to-
ward the goal. One of the two, a
morphine derivative made by split-

also showing promise, although it
must still be modified to eliminate

Swedish Architect, Czech
Mathematician Lecture
In University Series
Dr. Gunnar Asplund, prominent
Swedish architect, and Prof. Vaclav
Hlavaty, well-known mathematician
of Karl University, Prague, Czecho-
slovakia, will speak in University lec-
tures at 4:15 p.m. today.
Dr. Asplund will give an illustrated
lecture on "Swedish Architecture
Since 1920; Its Problems and Trends,"
in the Natural Science Auditorium,
while Dr. Hlavaty will discuss new
anagorithms of differential geometry
of projective curved spaces in Room
3011 Angell Hall.
Dr. Asplund is one of the outsitand-
ing Swedish architects and is known
as the leading exponent of function-
alism in architecture. He is noted for
his ideas as designer of the Stock-
holm Exposition of 1930 and for his
work in projects which include the
Town Library of Stockholm, The
Skandia Theatre, the Gothenburg
Town Hall, and the "Forest Ceme-
tery" of Stockholm.
Dr. Hlavaty is note for his work in
the field of Reimannian differential
geometry, which is associated with
the theory of relativity. At present
he is working at the Institute for Ad-
vanced Study at Princeton Univer-
Prof. Oskar Morgenstern, director
of the Austrian institute for Business

WASHINGTON, March 31.-(P)---
The international race to build faster
dreadnaughts officially began today
when the United States discarded a
treaty clause limiting such vessels to
35,000 tons.
Secretary of State Hull sent notes
to the British and French embassies
and to the Canadian legation, advis-
ing them of Uncle Sam's intention.
At the same time a note from Britain,
announcing a similar intention, was
en route to Washington.
France took another course, elect-
ing not to build super-battleships un-
less other European powers '(i.e., Ger-
many and Italy) do so.
Texts of the notes will not be pub-
lished until Saturday morning, it was
stated reliably, however, that they
say a power non-Agnatory to the
London Naval Treaty (Japan) is pre-
sumed to be building super-dread-
naughts, having refused to deny it.
Therefore, the United States Gov-
ernment is invoking the escalator
clause of the London Naval Treaty,

Church Choirs
jFormed First
Choral Union
The fan-fare and notoriety of the
present four-day May Festival con-
certs began back in some dim day in
1879 when four church choirs banded
together under the name of the
Choral Union and set out in earnest
to challenge the supremacy of the
local barber shop quartets.
They met for their own pleasure
and inaugurated concerts in the va-
rious churches. Their membership
record was not impressive but evi-
dently their musical skill was, for the
University took notice of them and
offered University Hall for the con-
The group branched out more and
more until in 1894 they did an un-
precedented thing and invited the
Boston Symphony Orchestra to ac-
company them. The custom has been
growing of late of having the last
concert of the season the most elab-
orate one, for the members had all
season to practice, and this extrava-
gant grand finale usually attracted
visitors from all over the state.

Bill Is Defeated
In A Test Vote
Lamneck Charges Bill Is
Build-Up For Hopkins
For The Presidency
WASHINGTON, March 31.--(P)-
The aim of the Roosevelt Reorgani-
zation Bill is to build up Harry L.
Hopkins for President, Representative
Lamneck, (Dem., O.), charged today
in a straggle to halt the Administra-
tion's effort to push the bill through
the :douse.
After President Roosevelt took per-
sonal command of the fight for the
bill in an unprecedented denial that
he wants to become dictator, Lam-
neck arose on the floor of the House
to assail a provision creating a new
Department of Public Welfare.
Head New Department \
He said Hopkins, the WPA chief,
would head the new department, and
perhaps would become the next presi-
dent, thus continuing New Deal poli-
The debate over the bill was marked
by a desperate fight for time on the
part of the opposition, so that, its
spokesmen said, the people might
have an opportunity to make their
views on the bill known to their rep-
resentatives in Congress.
Beaten 202 to 143 on \vhat many re-
garded as a test vote (the vote was
on a motion to take up the bill) they
made their goal the postponement
of a final vote until next week, so
that various organizations and week-
end orators, including the Rev
Charles E. Coughlin, might set a
stream of telegrams flowing into the'
House office building.
Carries Battle To Foes
Not only did the President pro-
nounce himself unfitted for dictator-
ship and averse to it, but he carried
the battle to the foes of the bill. He
said they had spread "silly night-
mares"and "planted bogives under
every bed."
To that end, they adopted filibus-
tering tactics whenever the stringent
rules of the House would permit.

Family Awaits
News Of Kin,
Nazi Prisoner
A German Jewish family in Ann
Arbor waits tensely, helplessly, for
news of Prof. Ferdinand Blumenthal,
68-year-old eminent German scient-
ist reported arrested by Austrian
Nazis in Vienna last week by the
New York Herald-Tribune.
The family ,that of Dr. Franz
Blumenthal, dermatologist at Eloise
Hospital and brother of Ferdinand,
received a letter from the latter the
day he was made prisoner by the
Nazis and has heard no word since.
Professor Blumenthal was director
of the Cancer Research Institute of
the University of Berlin until 1933,
the year Hitler came to power, at
which time he left Germany because
of the unsettled political conditions.
For two years he was connected
with the University of Belgrade where
he wrote a work on experimental re-
search work on cancer; and in 1935
moved to Vienna where he has lived
up to the time the Nazis took over
Professor Blumenthal was one of
the first men to conduct experimen-
tal research work on mice and other
animals. He was general secretary of
the most important organization in
the fight against cancer in Germany.
At the time of his arrest, Professor
Blumenthal was doing research work
dealing with hormone injections as
possible immunization against cancer.,
He was arrested as a refugee from
Germany, though, Dr. Franz Blumen-
thal said, he had not fled Germany
but had gone to Belgrade the better
to pursue his work away from the
turmoil and unrest of the Nazi rise to
power, Professor Blumenthal had
not actively opposed the Nazi regime
at all, his brother said.

Issued By Sample
Letters requesting the Regents to
indicate by mail what action they
wish to take on the cancellation of
University printing contracts with the
Ann Arbor Press were sent out yes-
terday by Shirley Smith, vice-presi-
dent of the University. A resolution
passed by the Regents March 18 in-
formed the printing firm that the
contracts might be cancelled unless
the Press reached an amicable settle-
ment of its labor difficulties by yes-
Regent John D. Lynch of Detroit
said last night that he had voted in
favor of the resolution and intended
"to follow it through."
Can Take Such Action
He stated that, despite a clause in
the contract requiring one; year's no-
tice before cancellation, such action
might be taken in view of Michigan
Public Act No. 153 requiring state
printing to be donedat plants that
maintain labor conditions equal to
those prevailing in the locality where
the work is produced.
At the same time it was learned
that an injunction restraining the
Ann Arbor Press from discharging
present employes or from reinstating
striking members of the International
Typographical Union because of
"duress, intimidation or coercion" by
strikers was issued yesterday after-
noon by Judge George W. Sample of
the Washtenaw County Circuit Court.
The injunction was issued at the
request of the Independent Associa-
tion of Ann Arbor Press Employees,
The preliminary injunction re-
strains members of the ITU from
carrying "banners within 2,000 feet of
the plant and from "insulting, abus-
ing, assaulting or harrassing em-
ployees." It also restrains the Ann
Arbor Press from reinstating any
striker because of duress or coercion
and prevents the strikers from intim-
idating employes at the plant or at
their homes.

The National Labor Relatons
Board was ordered in an injunction
issued Wednesday by Judge Sample
not to proceed with a scheduled hear-
ing on alleged unfair labor practices

nInfluence In Wars For Liberty

Foreign volunteers and volunteer
corps have played a part in a num-
ber of wars and liberation before the
present Spanish rebellion, in which
an International Column composed
of French, English, Italian, German,
Russian and American anti-fascists
has distinguished itself, records show.
The most memorable examples of
foreign volunteers in American serv-
ice are of course the many Europeans
who fought with Washington and
Greene in the American War of In-
dependence. Besides the youthful
Marquis de LaFayette, "the Hero of
Two Worlds," as the French writers
of his time called him, ~the most fa-
mous of these were probably the
German soldier of fortune, Baron von
Steuben, and the Polish patriot-exiles,
Pulaski and Kosciusko. Many other
Frenchmen, Germans, Poles and oth-
er Europeans of lesser renown than
these four also aided in the Revolu-

had remonstrated with the British
government over the recruiting of
American volunteers for the Crimean
war. After repeated representations
without result, President Pierce dis-
missed the British ambassador, an
unprecedented step. The British
agents took the volunteers to Hali-
fax, where they were sworn into the
British army on British soil.
American filibustering expeditions
to the South and Central American
revolutions have been frequent. The
most notable examples of volunteer
intervention in those countries were
perhaps William Walker's notorious
expedition into Nicaragua in 1854 to
establish a pro-slavery government
there and the numerous American
filibusters in Cuba in 1898, just prior
to the war with Spain.
Americans have served in Africa
and China as well as in South Amer-
ica and Europe. Many Americans
