Gopher, Wolverine Puck Squads

Collegiate hockey's fiercest rivals

Michigan and Minnesota renew their
belligerent bids for the Big Ten

The local rink will assuredly bulge

contestants. The Gophers and Wol-

Consequently, this series will vir-

Both Gophertown encounters were
spiced by frequent outbursts of fisti-

rules of nice rink etiquette shouldn't
interfere with their strong penchant

The House may either accept Sen-

The first meeting of the Ann Arbor
Social Service Seminar was held yes-
terday at the Washtenaw Welfare
Relief Commission office. The sem-
inar, under the chairmanship of Mrs.
Theophile Raphael, is sponsored by
the Women's Committee of the

Mrs. Irene Ellis Murphy, director
of the Central Volunteer Bureau of
the Council of Social Agencies, De-
troit, spoke on the relief situation in
Ann Arbor and Detroit. The prob-
lem was discussed by the group fol-
lowing Mrs. Murphy's address.
As many relief applications are re-
ceived at present, Mrs. Murphy said
as were received at the depths of the
last depression. Only two months o
the recession, she pointed out, creat-
ed as many relief cases as did twc
years of depression.
The purpose of the seminar is t
enable "interested lay persons t
have an opportunity to participate i

a much larger adventure than mere-
ly knowing their own social agency.'
The seminar will meet at 10 a.m
each Wednesday through March 30
Next week the group, which has2

on the basis of earliest application
will meet at the Hoover favtory. Prof

De Madariaga
To Give Peace
Lecture Tonight
World Foundation Head
Believes General War
May Still Be Averted
Salvador de Madariaga, formerE
Spanish ambassador to the United
States and renowned pacifist, will1
deliver a lecture on "What Is Peace?"
at 8:15 p.m. today in Hill Auditorium.
In spite of the precarious nature
of the present international situation,
Senor de Madariaga believes that a
general European war may still be
avoided, if partisan passions can beJ
subdued and a rational attitude;
adopted by the governments involved.
"While Europe is a powder maga-
tine and international tensions have
never been higher than they are
now," he says, "nevertheless power-
ful and responsible statesmen recog-
nize the tremendous disaster that a
war would be for Europe."
Elaborating on this statement,
Senor de Madariaga declares that
"never in the history of the world
has there been such plain speaking
and plain dealing; never have states-
men indulged' in such strong accuse.
tions of one another without precipi-
tating war, or even breaking off dip-
lomatic relations."
Senor de Madariaga and the
World Peace Foundation of which
he is chairman, are keen on the idea
-,f peace based on liberty. "We put
-iur faith in the, idea that there is
nothing in the way of organizing
'ife that the will of man, guided by
he mind of man, cannot do," he
ays. "If the will and mind of man
-tre set on getting peace in the world,f
hen we will have peace."
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves of the po-
litical science department will in-
'roduce the speaker.

Hitler Followers Downcast
At Order Handed Down
By Pro-Berlin Minister
German Opposition
Sounded In Vienna
VIENNA, Feb. 23.-(o)-Austria
laid down a set of rigid restrictions
on Nazi activities tonight on the eve
of Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg's
speech explaining his side of the new
Austro-German agreement.
The new order, issued by the de-
partment of security, banned the
wearing of Nazi insignia and Nazi
uniforms, prohibited, Nazi party ac-
tivity and limted the use of Nazi
songs and the greeting "Heil Hitler."
"Heil Hitler" would be tolerated,
the order said, only if spoken with-
out intent to political demonstration.
And Nazi songs were forbidden ex-
cept on occasions approved by the
Fatherland front.
The flag law was unchanged, which
means the swastika flag may be dis-
played in hotels by German citizens
but only beside an Austrian flag of
equal size.I
The decree brought acute disap-
pointment to the Nazis, particularly
because it came from the security de-
partment which is controlled by Ar-
thur Seysz-Inquart, new minister
friendly to Reichsfuehrer Hitler.
A brisk challenge to the Nazis was
voiced by Vienna's Catholic mayor,
Richard Schmidz, at a meeting of
4,000 members of the Fatherland
Front.
"We have tolerated a lot," the
mayor said, "but up to now we have
preserved discipline. Our unchal-
lengeable motto remans 'Liberty and
Atistrian Independence.'"
Police precautions were redoubled
as nervousness mounted on the eve
of Schuschnigg's speech.
Czechoslovakia Ready
PRAHA, Feb. 23.-P)-Czechoslo-
vakia is ready to defend heilelf

ing for outside help, the chief of ,the

He did not mention Germany but
there has been uneasiness here since
Chancellor Adolf Hitler Sunday pro-
claimed protection of German mi-
norities in central Europe.
