But Refuses To Reveal

Duce Is Satisfied
That Italy Is Secure
ROME, May 7.-(A)-Benito Mus-
solini and Adolf Hitler "completed
and sealed" their alliance tonight in
an exchange of fidelity toasts at a
formal state dinner in Palazzo Vene-
The Fuehrer guaranteed "for all
time" the Alpine border between Ger-

"It is my unshakeable will and also
my political ,testament to the Ger-

Affirm Rome-Berlin Axis
"I am certain that for Rome as
well as Germany there will result
a futur~e that will be glorious as well
as prosperous.".
(Germany extended her territory
to Italy's northern border March 13
when Hitler annexed Austria).

tators lacked concrete details of what
they intend to do about Czechoslo-
vakia, where a Nazi German minority
is clamoring for autonomy and other
problems which were said to have
been discussed.
Glorious Future Seen.
But their blanket reaffirmations of
the solidity of the Berlin-Rome work-
ing agreement was interpreted as an
indication that they had struck a bar-
gain with respect to each others' in-
terests, wherever they meet, and
would give' each other mutual aid in
the remaking of Europe.
Fascism's Duce told l4aziism's
"Your visit to Rome completes and
seals the understanding between our
two countries."
He pledged 4fledlity to the Rome-

Diplomats of the two nations urged

ILD Speakers
Out Of Jersey
Group's President Refuses
To Let Representatives
Address Hostile Crowd

JERSEY CITY, N.J., May 7.-(U)-
Vito Marcantonio, president of the
International Labor Defense, an-
nounced Representatives Jerry J. O'-
Connell (Dem., Mont.) and John T.
NEW YORK, May 7.--(P)--
Representative O'Connell said to-
night he would return to Wash-
inton immediately to demand of
President Roosevelt the removal
of Mayor Frank Hague of Jersey
City from the vice-chairmanship
of the Democratic Central Com-
Bernard (Farmer - Labor, Minn.)
would not come to Journal Square to-
night where massed thousands gath-
ered to witness their threat to defy a
city ordinance prohibiting public
speechmaking without a permit.
Marcantonio, after conferring with
the representatives in New York for
several hours, said they insisted on
speaking. But, as president of the
ILD, he said, "I cannot permit in-
nocent people to face certain blood-
shed, viol'ence and perhaps death at
the hands of a mob incited to do
violence by Mayor Frank Hague
through his various henchmen."
Takes Responsibility
"I have' now advised and urged
them not to attend that meeting, and
I take full responsibility for so do-
ing," said Marcantonio, who ex-
plained O'Connell and Bernard were
"guests" of the ILD to spea: at the
Anti-Hague rally.
Col. Hugh Kelly, secretary to Gov.
A. Harry Moore and President of the
State League of War Veterans, which
held a rally Thursday to protest to-
night's schedule meeting, said:
"We have proven conclusively
through the efforts of the veterans
and labor organizations that men of
the type of Jerry O'Connell, be he
congressman or not, are not wanted
in Jersey City.t
Police Barricade Square
Policemen and firemen roped off all
entrances to the square in a maneu-
ver calculated to bar the two expect-
ed congressmen from reaching the
scene from where Norman Thomas,
three-time Sociayjst candidate for
president, was escorted from the city
last Saturday when he attempted to
make a speech.
Two men were hustled by a group
of veterans to the Journal Square
tube trains and told to "go back to
Union Square," traditional New York
City outdoor forum for various shades
of political opinion.
Early in the evening a photograph
showing Thomas with his arm uplift-
ed in a clenched fist salute appeared
on a large sign near the exit of the
Hudson and Manhattan railroad tubes
linking New York, Jersey City and

Hammarsten To Lecture
On Seeretin Tomorrow
Dr. Einar Hammarsten of the Car-

holm, Sweden, will give the last Uni-
versity lecture on "The Secretin of
Bayliss and Starling" at 4:15 p.m. to-
morrow in the Natural Science Audi-
Secretin was the first of the body
substances called hormones to be
identified. This was done by Bay-
liss and Starling in 1901, and since
that time the study of the hormones
has revolutionized concepts of the
nervous system and the operation of
body functions.
Dr. Hammarsten is an authority on
the subject and has conducted out-
standing research and experimenta-
tion on secretin. He recently ob-
tained the hormone in a crystallized
form and has characterized it chem-
ically, showing it to be a protein sub-
His illustrated lecture tomorrow
-will treat the importance and func-
tion of secretin as well as its crystalli-
zation and characterization. Dr.
Hammarsten's well-known assistant,
Dr. Gunnar Agren, will accompany

Track Team
Crushes Illini
By 44 Points
Watson, Martin Set Meet
Marks In Field Events;
Gedeon Takes Hurdles
Schwartzkopf Wins
Initial Start In Mile
Michigan's track team maintained
its undefeated status yesterday af-
ternoon as it crushed a valiant but
hopeless Illinois, 87 2-3 to 43 1-3 be-
fore 3,000 spectators at Ferry Field.
Taking advantage of the perfect
weather, the Wolverines, led by Big
Bill Watson, erased three dual meet
standards and tied -one. Bill sailed
the discus 152 feet 8/2 inches to
crack the mark of 150 feet 3 inches
set up in 1932 by another great Michi-
gan Negro star, Booker Brooks.
Watson Scores 14
Watson scored 14 points as he an-
nexed firsts in the discus and shot,
second in the broad jump and third
in the high jump. Big Bill's four
event program told on him when he
was nosed out by one inch in the
broad jump by Brunton of Illinois
with a leap of 23 feet 9 5-8 inches,
more than a foot off Watson's per-
formance last week at Penn.
Fred Martin further enhanced the
greatest show of field power ever
seen in a Michigan team as he ac-
counted for a nw dual meet record
in the ,javelin with a throw of 205
feet 41/2 inches to displace Phil North-
rop's 200 feet 5 inch mark set in
1925. Martin hurled the stick better
than 210 feet at one point in the af-
ternoon and consistently bettered 200
feet but fouled on al but 'two of his
Gedeon First In Hurdles
Elmer Gedeon, Michigan's Big Ten
indoor champipn hurdler, trounced
Brunton and Robinson of Illinois,
who finished in that order, by a full
flight of hurdles as he equaled Bob
Osgood's 14.3 record for the high
hurdle event established last year.
Gedeon was never pushed as he
scissored the barriers in perfect form
even though he had practically no
practice since the end of the indoor
season. Gedeon retired from the meet
immediately after the race to play
first base for the diamond squad
against Indiana.
Rambling Ralph Schwarzkopf, in
his first time out at the mile, tacked
together a 2:13 and a 2:06 pair of
880's to finish 100 yards in front of
Michigan's Brad Heyl in second.

Passes Arms Control Bill
In Final Session
Hindered by the rule of unanimity,
the 11th Annual Michigan Model
Assembly of the League of Nations,
attended by 150 students and teach-
ers from 18 colleges throughout the
state, succeeded in passing but one
resolution in its final plenary session
at 9 a.m. yesterday in Haven Hall.
The resolution stated that, "A per-

manent commission be established to
regulate and record the international
sale of arms. Said commission does
not however, contemplate nationali-
zation of the manufacture of arms."
More than 10 resolutions were pre-
sented by the four groups into which
the conference had been divided for
the discussions Friday: Peaceful
Change, Minorities, Rearmament and
Reorganization of the League. Five
of these proposals were defeated by
one and two votes.
The unanticipated discord in the
conference was attributed by Ray
Hughes of Wayne University, presi-
dent of the conference, to the unfa-
miliarity of some of the student dele-
gates with the traditional policies
and trends in the countries they rep-
Prof. Greorio T. Velasquez of the
Philippines told how his country
objected to Japanese capital because
of the entanglements it entailed.

U.S. Deflation

Cause For Business Recession

Blaming the current business re-
cession on the government's defla-
tionary tactics, Lawrence Dennis, ec-
onomist for E. A. Pierce and Co. of
the New York Stock Exchange, told
alumni of the School of Business Ad-
ministration at their 10th annual ban-
quet last night that banks must take
the initiative in creating a capital
goods boom before prosperity can be

Most critical of the abnormal con-
ditions making forced deflation dan-
gerous, Dennis declared, was the ac-
cumulation of three billion dollars
of "hot money," rushed into the Unit-
ed States by foreign banks in antici-
pation of currency devaluation
abroad. The presence of such a vast
sum subject to immediate withdrawal
for reconversion, created a "shaky"
condition which government deple-
tion of bank surpluses turned into a
