Illinois Nine
10-9 In 12th
Andronik Is Knocked Out
By Five Runs In First;
2-Run Rally Wins Game
Fishman And Smith
Allow Final Tally
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., April 22.-
(Special to The Daily)-Michigan's1
baseball team today lost the first
game of the two game series with the
University of Illinois, 10 to 9, in a
12 inning tooth and nail battle. -
Herm Fishman, who took the
mound for the Wolverines after An-
dronik allowed the Illini five runs in
the first inning, gave up eight hits
before he retired in the twelfth in-
uing in favor of Smith after allovyingj
the winning run to get on base. Leol
Sainati, who went the whole routet
for the Illini, gave up 13 safeties.
Illinois Takes Lead
Illinois stepped off to an early lead
in- the first inning when Ernie Ca-
vallo went to first on Peckinpaugh's
error and was advanced to third when
Capt. John Callahan connected for
a double. Cavallo was out on his
way home when Frank Conley hit
into a fielder's choice, and Callahan
went to third. Jack Berner dupli-
cated Conley's act and Callahan was
out at the plate. Then consecutive
singles by Tom McConnell, Sainati,
and Kucera sent four runs home
and Andronik to the showers.
A single off Fishman by Len Kallis
scored the fifth Illini run and the
side was retired.
Big Second Inning
Michigan had its big inning in the
second when Smick opened festivities
with a single and Gedeon was walked.
Beebe's single scored Smick and
Gedeon went home on Sainati's'
wild pitch. Fishman dribbled out.
Trosko was safe at first and Beebe
scored on Kucera's muff at short-
stop. Brewer walked and the bases
were filled when Sainati hit Peckin-
paugh at the plate. This set the
stage for Kremer who belted a homer
into right field to clean the bases i
and close the activity for the inning,
with the visitors leading, 7 to 5.
IThe Illini were good for two runs
in the fourth and one in the sixth to
go ahead, 8 to 7. 'However the Wolves
took one in the eighth to tie the,
game, where it remained until the
Pink Scores In Twelfth
In Michigan's half of the twelfth
frame, Pink was walked and ad-
vanced to second on Campbell's hit,
two already being out. Smick then
poled a long single into centerfield
to score Pink. Gedeon popped out tol
finish the side.
McConnell opened the Illinois half
by taking a walk. Sainati went out
and Dick Kucera hit a clean double
to score McConnell and tie the score.
George Richter took Kucera's place
on bases. Smith entered the game and
walked Christiansen and Kallis fill-
ing the bases,
Cavallo's high fly to left field was
sufficient to allow Richter to score
and finish the ball game.
Settle Deadlock
On Profits Tax
In Conference

Modified Version Of Levy
Extended For Two Year
Period By Committee
WASHINGTON, April 22.-(l)-A
tight Senate-House deadlock over re-
peal of the undistributed profits tax
broke today with a decision by a
joint conference committee to retain
a modified version of the levy for
two years.
The conference group, composed
of representatives of the two cham-
bers, agreed on a scale of corpora-
tion income tax rates ranging from
16%1 to 19 per cent, depending upon
the amount of profits a corporation
distributes to its shareholders.
The House had approved a 16 to
20 per cent undistributed profits tax
range. The Senate had voted to dis-
card such levies and substitute a flat
rate of 18 per cent on corporation

Of Alaskan Settlers

May Bring Mass Emigration

Midwestern Families Are
Reported Prospering In
Fertile Matanuska Valley
The Associated Press yesterday
carried a story of the 200 families of
relief farmers who crashed the na-
tion's press three years ago on their
now historic 3,500-mile-trek from
drought-parched Michigan,. Minne-
sota and Wisconsin to the fertile gov-
ernment-owned Matanuska Valley in
Alaska. In reporting the prospering
Alaskan Utopian community, the AP
was recording the success of a mod-
ern pioneer movement which may
sometime result in a mass immigra-.
tion to Alaska.
Three years ago the Federal gov-
ernment through the medium of the
Alaska Rural Rehabilitation Head-
quarters selected about 1,000 sturdy'
Mid-West farm folk, mostly Swedes
and Finns under 30 years of age and
offered them 40 acres of farm land in
the Matanuska Valley and full equip-
ment on a long-time credit basis. The
Government in addition agreed to fi-

nance the trip from the Lake States
right through to Alaska. The offer
was snapped up and in the spring of
1935 200 families of red-plush pion-
eers departed for the West Coast in
chair cars with their canaries, mal-
tese cats, police dogs and guppies
rolling along in front of them in the
baggage compartment. Preceding the
families were 500 shock-troopers who
were to clean out the timber and
make things as easy as possible for
the new settlers.
At first everything seemed askew
and complaints of favoritism de-
luged Washington while 52 families
threw in the sponge and hit the home
trail. But several able trouble shoot-
ers were hurried in by the Govern-
ment and the complexion of things
changed quickly. Hop ses sprang up
and modern comforts rolled in over
the Alaska Railroad. Today the
visitor sees 173 spruce log cabins, and
bungalows with parlor, kitchen, bed-
rooms and running water. There are
123 barns, 188 wells and 82 miles of
road. Imported engineers have con-
structed a power plant with steam

Sink Announces Unusual
Program For Meeting
Of Schoolmasters Club
An unusual program for the Music
Conference of the Michigan School-
masters' Club, April 29 and 30, was
forecast yesterday by Charles A. Sink,
president of the School of Music and
chairman of the Conference.
In cooperation with the Music Sec-
tion of the Schoolmaster's Club, the
Michigan Music Educators' Associa-
tion, and the Michigan School Band
and Orchestra Association, will pro-
vide a series of meetings which, it is
expected, will attract more than a
hundred music directcrs, conductors
and supervisors to Ann Arbor.
During the two days, simultaneous-
ly with the series of discussions, and
demonstrations, the third annual
High School Music Festival of in-
strumental solo and ensemble groups
will be held. This Festival is spon-
sored by the Michigan School Band
and Orchestra Association, bands and
other ensemble groups. It is not a
contest, but a festival, in whichthe
participants will be graded, according
to groups. The first day will be
divided into a number of sectional
meetings. A luncheon and business
meeting will be held at noon in the
Union dining room.
The University of Michigan Band
under William D. Revelli, will ap-
pear in Hill Auditorium from 7:30
to 8:15p.m.
Britain, Ireland
Reach Accord
Agreement To Be Signed
Monday To End Bickering
LONDON, April 22.-()-Great
Britain and Ireland today reached
an agreement they hoped would end
years of bickering.
An announcement by the domin-
ions office said the accord had been
concluded, but gave no details.
Drafted after three months of ne-
gotiations headed by British Prime
Minister Neville Chamberlain and
Irish Prime Minister Eamon De Val-
era the agreement will be signed
Reliable sources in Dublin said the
new agreement settled the long-
standing annuities and tariff differ-
ences between the two countries. It
was believed, however ,that one ma-
jor issue-De Valera's dream for a
united Ireland-was left untouched,
at least for the present.
Economic differences between the
two countries date back to 1932, when
DeValera, then Irish Free State pres-
ident, withheld payment of land an-
nuities to Great Britain amounting
to £5,000,000 ($25,000,000) yearly, for
advances made by Britain to enable
Irish tenants to buy land.

Nine Are Dead,
Fifty Missing
.In Mine Blast
Miners' Bodies Recovered
From Explosion-Torn
VirginiaCoal Tunnel
Flames Spurt Forth
200 Feet Into The Air
GRUNDY, Va., April 22.-- (P) -
Nine bodies were reported to have
been recovered tonight from the ex-
plosion-wrecked Red Jacket Coal
Company's pit eight miles east of
Grundy, with at least 50 others be-
lieved trapped in the mine.
An official of the Weller yard of
the Norfolk and Western Railway
said he was informed the bodies, in-
cluding those of three killed outside
the mine by the terrifice explosion,
had been found.
The official added that he was
informed by telephone from the
mine, located on isolated Keen Moun-
tain, that "at least 50 other miners
were trapped and feared dead."
The blast occurred shortly after
the night shift had been wheeled into
the pit in mine cars at 4:30 p.m.
Flames spurted 200 feet from the
mouth, overturning a motor which
fell on the motorman, John Blevins,
decapitating him.
An unidentified miner also was
caught by the motor and decapitated.
Ed Harris, standing outside at the
time, said:
"You couldn't describe it. One min-
ute we were there busy and the next
everything was in a mess. It's hard
to think just what happened."
Approximately 300 men worked at
the mine, which was opened last fall
in a new field described by bureau of
mine officials as "most promising."
While thousands jammed their way
toward the scene over the narrow,
winding roads, the U.S. Department
of Mines and Mine Bureaus of Vir-
ginia and West Virginia quickly mo-
bilized rescue workers.
So terrific was the blast that mer-
chandise - was 'k cked ' from the
shelves of the Oakwood Smokeless
Coal Company's store a mile and a
quarter away.
Seven motorists traversing a nearby
road were endangered by flying de-
bris and miners a mile or more away
reported their homes were shaken.
Hillel To Campaign
For Relief Funds
A drive to raise $1,600, Ann Arbor's
quota of the Joint Distribution Com-
mittee's five million dollar national
campaign to aid Jews in Europe, will
open on May 1, therHillel Founda-
tion announced yesterday.
Samuel Grant, '40, has been ap-
pointed local Executive Director and
will have complete charge of the two
week drive.
Last year the Foundation suc-
ceeded in collecting $1,300. Due to
the spread of persecution in Ger-
many, Austria, Poland and Rumania
during the past year a proportionate-
ly larger amount of money is needed.
Representatives will be appointed
to fraternities and sororities and an
extensive mailing campaign request-
ing contributions will open the drive.

Peace Strike
Plns Curtailed
By U.niversit
The United Peace Committee's
plans for a Strike Against War to be
held at 11 a.m. Wednesday on the
steps of the General Library struck a
snag yesterday when the University
Administration refused to grant dis-
missal of classes at that hour or per-
mission to use the library steps for
the demonstration.
The University instead offered use
of the Mall behind the College of
Architecture at 4 p.m., Daniel Gluck,
'38L, chairman of the Committee,
said. The reason for the University's
refusal, Gluck said, was that the
Honors Convocation, at 11 a.m. Fri-
day, would necessitate a dismissal of
classes at that time, and the same
classes would be affected by dis-
missals at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
The Strike Committe of the United;
Peace Committee will meet withE
President Ruthven today, Gluck said,
in an effort to obtain an earlier houra
than 4 p.m. for the demonstration.
Speakers at the rally will be Prof.
Robert Morse Lovett of the Univer-
sity of Chicago, vice-president of theI
American League for Peace and De-
mocracy, and Tucker Smith, former
secretary of the Committee on Mili-
tarism in Education, a national group
conducting a fight against compul-I
sory military training in schools and,

Federal Speakers Address
AssemblageOf 200
Greater emphasis upon land sta-
tistics and surveys was the advice
given yesterday by two Federal speak-
ers to more than 200 state real estate
brokers assembled in an educational

conference sponsored jointly by the
School of Business Administration
and the Michigan Real Estate Asso-
Prof. Arthur M. Weimer of Indiana
University justified governmental as-
sistance and regulation as a sort of
umpire interpreting rules of the game.
Stimulation of real estate, rather
than interference with private enter-
prise, was the message of Coleman
Woodbury, director of the National
Association of Housing Officials. He
stressed the need for setting carefully
a rent level in federal housing which
would not discriminate against the
lower income family.

Japs Rush Fresh Troops
SHANGHAI, April 23-(Saturday)
--(P)-Heavy Japanese reinforce-
ments were rushed down the Tient-
sin-Pukow Railway today in the sec-
ond stage of the new Shantung of-
fensive already launched at Lini, 70
miles to the east.
The fresh troops, accompanied by
tanks and artillery, arrived at Tengh-
sien, 60 miles north of Suchow, and
started working their way southward
and eastward to join exhausted Ja-
panese forces around Lincheng and
The Japanese strategy apparently
is to make a drive down the railway
while their reorganized forces strung
out along a 30-mile front south and
southwest of Lini attempt to break
the strong Chinese defenses in that
It was estimated that 200,000 of the
half million Chinese troops in Shang-
tung province were entrenched in the
hills on the Lini front, making the
fight there a contest of manpower
and machine-guns against field ar-
tillery and airplanes.

DETROIT, April 22.-(,P)-Gover-
nor Murphy penned a reply today to
critics of President Roosevelt's recov-
ery program, which he termed
"America's first need today."
The federal government's course in
the face of a "grim emergency,"
Murphy said in a radio address pre-
pared for delivery at 7:45 E.S.T., must
be action--"not piecemeal or grad-
ual action but collective, united and
immediate action."
"Woe betide a people that fails to
profit by its own experience," he
warned. "In 1933 we saw what may
happen to a nation where Govern-
ment fails to provide in time the
remedies needed to counteract a;
serious decline in business.'t

WASH'INGTON, , April 22.-(P)-
Informed officials concluded from
President Roosevelt's statement at a
press conference today that the Unit-
ed States neutrality policy toward the
Spanish civil war would continue in
Many delegations representing sup-
porters of the Barcelona Government
have come to Washington recently,
seeking a change in the program so
as to permit the shipment of arms
to the Government forces. Arms
shipments to both Spanish factions
are forbidden under the present pol-
The President, in reply to a ques-
tion as to whether he thought the
neutrality policy as applied to Spain
had been satisfactory, said he thought
it had been so far as was possible
under the law.
The President said the neutrality
act had a two-fold objective: to keep
the United States from becoming in-
volved in a war, and to avoid giving
aid to one side against the other or
of penalizing one side as opposed to
the other.
He added the act was difficult to
Persons close to the State Depart-
ment said that neither the President
nor Secretary Hull was satisfied with
the act as it stood, but they did not
favor its repeal,
Their lack of satisfaction, it was
said, was based on the theory that it
tied the Administration's hands too
closely and did not permit the free-
dom of action necessary in delicate
international situations.

Helper, Smith Win Case Club
Verdict In Brooks Vs. Parkinson'

Ralph Helper and Bruce Smith won
the decision of the Case Club's high-
est "appellate court" yesterday over
Clifford Christianson and Robert
Keck in the case of "Brooks vs. Park-
inson" in which the limits of a
widow's trust rights were defined.
The Henry M. Campbell Award of
$100 was awarded to the winners and
$50 was awarded to the losers, all
juniors in the Law School.
Guest judges hearing the case were,
Judge Orie L. Phillips, Circuit Court
of Appeals, 10th district; Judge
Charles C. Simons, Cirucit Court of
Appeals, sixth district; U.S. Judge
Arthur F. Lederle; and former Chief
Justice of the Michigan Supreme
Court Louis H. Fead. More than 300
people witnessed the trial.
At the 13th Annual Founder's Day
dinner held last night at the Law-
yers' dining room, Judge Phillips told
more than 350 law students and law-

duties and imposts for the common
defense and general welfare of the
United States. Judge Phillips point-
ed out that this clause has been
variously interpreted by loose and
strict constructionists.
The 14th Amendment, requiring
the states to provide due process of
law, does not restrict their police
power-probably the most important
power of the states, Judge Phillips
Judge Phillips gave various inter-
pretations of the commerce clause,
showing the powers delegated to the
national government and those re-
served to the states.
In conclusion, Judge Phillips reiter-
ated the fact that because the na-

had its own field, local self-govern-
ment is preserved.

towers of American freedom," Judge
Phillips told the young lawyers. "that
