Stabilized Money To End
Threat Of Financial Fall
Hint Profits To Buy
Huge Air Armada'
PARIS, May 4.-(P)-Premier Ed-
ouard Daladier notified the nation
tonight that the Frencoi franc would
be stabilized tomorrow at a rate
which could be "effectively defended."
The Premier delayed telling the
country what the new rate of the
franc would be until the level is fixed
tomorrow in the third devaluation
since the World War.
In today's foreign exchange deal-
ings, the franc fluctuated around a
point equal to about three United
States cents, opening at 33.15 to the
dollar and closing at 33.93.
Financial quarters were inclined to,
believe the new rate of the franc
would be about 35 to the dollar, or
2.86 cents.
Present gold holdings of the Bank
of France are being carried on the
books at 22.96 francs to the dollar.
Revaluation at about the existing.
market rate would give the govern-
ment a paper profit. In a radio broad-
cast tonight, Daladier said it was tak-
en ii full accord with the govern-
ments of the United States and Great
Britain, who joined with France in
the Tripartite Monetary Agreement
of Sept. 25, 1936, for currency equilib-.
He said stabilization of the franc
was decided upon because of unem-
ployment, an unfavorable trade bal-
ance, and the increasing danger of

first uses would be in an attempt to

On Rhine Talk
A lively discussion session will fol-
low Prof. J. B. Rhine's lecture on "The
Conflict over Extra-Sensory Percep-
tion," at 4:15 p.m. today in the Na-
tural Science Auditorium, Thomas N.
E. Greville of the mathematics de-
partment and president of the Para-
psychology Club, predicted yesterday.
Professor Rhine's theory asserts
that some persons are capable of re-
ceiving information either from
physical objects or from minds of
others, instead of through recognized
sensory channels.
Evidence of the nation-wide fac-
tionalism which extra-sensory per-
ception has aroused, hi the letters of
exchange between Mr. Greville and
Prof. Norman Maier of the psychology
department in the Daily's forum col-
"My accusation," Mr. Greville as-
serted in his reply to Professor Maier,
"was clearly directed at unknown
character and integrity of one whom
I regard as a friend."
Professor Maier asserted that "most
of the investigations are by former
people on this campus who had been
circulating rumors derogatory to the
students of Rhine and seven of the
nine (including Rhine who is a Bot-
anist by training) do not hold even
associate membership in the Ameri-
can Psychological Association."

Huge Parade
Is Set To Open
'38 Michigras
A parade with over 50 units and
stretching more than six blocks long
will herald the opening of the 1938
Michigras tomorrow. It will be com-
posed of two sections with a band in
front and in back of each section.
The Michigras, a huge carnival-for

morrow and Saturday in Yost Field
Paul Brickley, '39, is heading the
parade committee. He has made ar-
rangements for the huge cavalcade's
formation in front of the Ann Arbor
News Building, and reports that it will
wind through the campus down to the
Yost Field House. He has not yet
divulged just who will lead the parade,
though it was at first rumored that
some high University functionary
would pave the way on a calliope.
The University Band will play a
major role in the parade. Among
other groups are the freshman wom-
en's project of a haywagon, the Ann
Arbor high school band, Psi Upsilon's
characterization of "On the Steps of

First Effects Of Victory

Senator Accorded
2-1 Endorsement
WASHINGTON, May 4.-(,P)-The
Roosevelt Administration took the
Florida primary in its stride; but
under circumstances illustrating the
party discord that has split Demo-
cratic ranks repeatedly in this Con-
Florida Democrats turned in an
emphatic endorsement for Sen.
Claude Pepper, running for renomin-
ation on an. out-and-out record of
loyalty to the Roosevelt New Deal.
At the sametime they polled a sub-
stantial minority for Pepper's lead-
ing opponent, Rep. J. Marx Wilcox,
frequent foe of Roosevelt policies.
Wilcox did not run as anti-Roose-
velt candidate. His attack on Pepper
as a rubber stamp New Dealer served,
however, to add to the pro and anti-
Roosevelt tinge that marked the con-
If that was the issue in the minds
of Florida Democrats who trooped to
the polls, their answer was definite.
They voted more than 2 to 1 for Pep-
per as against Wilcox.
Many observers believe the first ef-
fects of the Florida test may be felt
in connection with the Administra-
tion's effort to obtain a wage-hour bill
vote in the House before adjourn-
ment of Congress.
There is even a possibility that the
Pepper victory may affect the ad-
journment date should President
Roosevelt exert pressure to prolong
the session for completion of wage-
hour or any other part of his legis-
lative program. That the Florida pri-
maries increased his prestige and in-
fluence in marked fashion was the
reaction among many observers.

Business Staff Will Quizj
Students And Faculty,
On Purchasing Practices1
Beginning today, more than 1,000
students and faculty members will
receive a four-page questionnaire pre-
pared by the Daily's business staff
to determine the purchasing power
and buying habits of undergraduates
and professors.
The pamphlet, drawn up and dis-
tributed by Norman Steinberg, '38, of
the business staff, lists 20 questions,
and is based on a test survey which'
he made on 50 students. Every tenth
name in the student directory and
seventh in the faculty directory were
chosen for the poll.
Results, which will be publicized
after tabulatioi, will be made avail-
able to prospective freshmen, the
Daily's advertisers and the Univer-
sity. It is believed to be the first
survey of such detail of student and
faculty budget expenditures ever tak-
en on the Michigan campus.
Sample questions, different for men
and women students and for faculty
members, include the following:
What is the source of your weekly
income? What items of expense does
your weekly income cover? Do you
eat your meals from place to place
or at a regular eating establishment?
Do you have your clothes laundered
in Ann Arbor or are they mailed
home? Where did you buy your last

Loses In 12th
To Toledo, 9-8
Wastes Early 5 iun Lead
As Last Inning Error
Blasts Wolverine Hopes
Michigan's baseball team couldn't
stand prosperity yesterday afternoon,
wasted an early five run lead, and
gradually fell by the wayside as an
ahggressive Toledo University nine
dropped the Wolverines 9 to 8 in 12
The game started off in impressive
Wolverine fashion with the locals
scoring all eight runs in the first five
innings. But any delusions of grand-.
eur were rudely shattered when the
Toledoans embarked on a four-run
extravaganza in the seventh to final-
ly knot the score.
The Ohio contingent really got
tough after that bit of encourage-
ment. They got some strong left-
handed ptching from Dick Smith,
who had relieved Howard Camp in
the second, kept alert in the field,
and hung on for 12 rather drab
innings before a Michigan miscue in
the final frame turned an expected
defeat into victory.
Coach Ray Fisher turned a couple
of his sophomore hurlers loose for
yesterday's fray, and the result was
the direct antithesis of the expected.
Russ Dobson and Jack Barry were
the pitchers, and they both surprised.
Dobson, the big, lanky Ann Arbor
product, was figured to breeze through
with ease against the' under-rated
Toledo bunch. Big Russ topped the
yearling mound corps last year and
has been highly regarded in local
Russ was shelled from the mound
after 5 1/3 innings yesterday, having
given eight hits and seven walks
during his tenure. He was directly
responsible for seven Toledo runs.
Yet, discounting his wildness, the be-
spectabled sophomore showed plenty
yesterday. His curve at times was
superb, his fast ball had ample zip,
and his form was excellent. Yet the
opposition popped away with annoy-

Professor McCluskey suggested that
such a proposal carefully worked out,
might be valuable in building more

It is extremely important that a

effect of creating marriages among
the group best qualified to maintain
them. At the present time the divorce
rate for marriages among college
graduates is one of 75 or one-tenth
that of the rest of the nation.
This is largely due to the more fa-
