Coach Cappy Cappon, still discon-
solate over his lost title prospect,
succinctly described the brilliant
Wolverine performance. "The dam
broke," Cappon explained wearily as
he remembered the miserable Iowa
and Minnesota fiascos, which re-
moved his quintet from champion-
ship considerations.
Crowd In Frenzy
And the crowd, which would have
willingly chucked a dried mackerel
at the Wolverines in those two de-
feats, was in an occasional state of
frenzy as Capt. Jake unloosed the
full fury of his passing and pivoting.
It was the same kind of marvelous
exbibition which inspired Eastern
writers to eulogize him early in the
season, to which local fans had be-
come accustomed until the recent
Wolverine recession.

Dorsey Band
Brings Swing
To FieldHouse
Tommy Dorsey swings into Ann Ar-
bor today to .jam Yost Field House
with a roster of popular tunes, includ-
ing eight of the current campus fa-
vorites, selected in a recent poll. The
concert will begin at 8:30 p.m.
The opening piece will be "Swing'
That Music," followed by "Dipsy
Doodle." Next will come "Three Moods
in Swing,' 'a medley made up of "Dark
Eyes," "Satan Takes a Holiday" and,
"Symphony in Riffs."
Trombone Man
A musical biography e n t i t l e d
"Trombone Man" will be next, fol-
lowed by the trio, "In the Still of the
Night," "You're a Sweetheart" and
"Once In a While." After these the
band will render "Marie," the cam-
pus favorite.
Next will come a collection titled
"The Evolution of Swing." In the first
movement, called "From Then Till
Now," will be "Memphis Blues," as
played in 1909; "Tiger Rag" as played
by the original Dixieland Jazz Band;
excerpts from Paul Whiteman's ar-

The President pointed out that

preserved by emphasizing cultural ed-

education," Dr. Ruthven said, "they
are being taught to think for them-

This end is being accomplished
through a cultural curriculum."
"But," he went on to say, "educa-
tors have gone too far in the pre-pro-
essional program by requiring too
many pre-requisites for technical and
professional schools."
He pointed out that students trained
in such specialized fields are mere
practitioners when they graduate
from the professional school, not cit-

Sliht Increase
Over Last Year
In Enrollment
10,477 Student Register;-
College Of Architecture
Has 17 Per Cent Gain
University enrollment for the sec-
ond semester up to noon last Satur-
day, showed a 4.4 per cent increase
over last year, according to figures
released yesterday by Miss Marian
Williams, registrar's office statisti-
The total enrollment was 10,477 as
compared with 10,035 for the second
semester of 1936-37. There are 7,-
451 men and 3,026 women enrolled,
proportionately the same as last year.
The Graduate School, the College
of Engineering, and the College of

remain the largest schools on cam-
pus. The latter has a total enroll-
ment of 4433, a net loss of .6 per
cent over last year. The Graduate
School has 1,865 students enrolled, a
rain of 15.8 per cent, while the Col-
lege of Engineering has an enroll-
ment of 1,771, a gain of 14 per cent.
Four of the engineering students are
women, the same number as last year
at this time.
The biggest gain in enrollment was
made by the College of Architecture
with an enrollment 17 per cent
greater than last year. The School1
of Pharmacy showed the greatest loss,
with a decrease of 18.4 per cent.

Paris Deeply Concerned
Over London's Leave
Of Old Democratic Bloc
Hope For New Pact
With Great Britain
PARIS, Feb. 21.-(P)-Talk of a
oossible cabinet shake-up circulated
freely tonight as France consulted
'er European friends on changes in
iiplomacy forced by the resignation
)f Britain's Foreign Secretary, An-
thony Eden.
Foreign Minister Yvon Delbos,
whose policy was tied closely to that
-f Eden, was considered in danger of
being forced out unless French diplo-
macy is readjusted quickly.
Members of the Chamber of Depu-
ties said Premier Camille Chautemps
already had talked with a number of
ministers about enlarging the Cabinet
to include more conservatives. The
whole question will be placed before
the Cabinet tomorrow, deputies said.
Meanwhile, Delbos kept in contact
with both Czechoslovakia and Russia.
He had a long talk with Jacob Surits,
Soviet Ambassador, and was said to be!
in close touch with Praha.
United States Ambassador William I
C. Bullitt visited the Foreign Office
this afternoon, but both the American'
embassy and French officials said he
went only to find out what was hap-
pening and to say "goodbye" since'
he is leaving Thursday for a holiday
in the United States.
Sources close to the Foreign Office
said the government's chief concern
was over Britain's "abandonment" of
central Europe. Officials left little
doubt that nothing would be done by
Prance on European problems until
it was settled what London's new for-
eigni policy would be.
The main hope at the Quai D'Or-
say was that the British Government
would find Anglo-Italian conciliation
impossible without virtual capitula-
tion to the Rome-Berlin combine and
would learn how much Britain needs
French support.
The Foreign Office, it was learned,
suggested Britain join Paris in a sec-
ond warning to Reichsfuehrer Hitler
that the two nations were concerned
about Nazi plans in Austria and show
that they still were backing Czecho-
slovakia, but no reply was received
from London.

His Program 'Scrapped'

Eden Makes Plea
Before Parliament
LONDON, Feb. 21.- (RP) -Prime
Minister Neville Chamberlain told
Parliament in polite but biting words
today he had scrapped Anthony
Eden and all he stood for as foreign
secretary for an immediate settle-
ment with Fascist Italy and Nazi
He explained Eden's course would
have led to war.
In diplomatic phrases that did not
hide the bitterness of their break,
Eden and Chamberlain took their
quarrel to the House of Commons.
Just Two Gentlemen
They were two gentlemen debat-
ers in the world's oldest club. Cham-
berlain apparently has won, al-
though the formal vote will not come
until tomorrow.
But Eden, out as Foreign Secre-
tary, was fighting bitterly to sway
Parliament against any deals with
dictators under force of threats.
And Chamberlain, in power and
acting as his own Foreign Minister,
was striving equally dramatically, in
his own methodical way, to hold
Britain to , a peace-at-any-price
course of conciliating Italy and Ger-
Eden's resignation, putting the
long-bottled up quarrel before a
shocked Bitish public, apparently
has failed in its purpose of changing
the course of the Empire.

ity in Parliament rushed to Chamber-
lain's support on the policy of bring-
