To Believe That Berlin

France Reaffirms
Pact With Czechs
LONDON, May 22.-(Sunday)-(P)
-Nazi Germany, aided by Poland
and apparently heedless to British
pleas, whipped fearful Europe into a
war scare today with a warning to
harassed Czechoslovakia to grant au-
tonomy demands of her German mi-
nority.
London and Paris still refused to
believe, however, that Germany would
provoke a wfar which was virtually
-certain to range Britain, France and
Russia against her. They felt she
would take any chance of gaining her
ends in Czechoslovakia by peaceful
intimidation.
Ultimatum Violent
In a tone as violent as the ultima-
tum to Austria which preceded Ger-
man annexation of that country, Field
Marshal Hermann Wilhelm Goering's
newspaper thundered a "last, urgent
appeal" to Czechoslovakia, where two
Nazis were killed yesterday.
The Field Marshal's newspaper,
The Essen National Zeitung, appeared
to have forgotten German assurances
that Czechoslovakia would not suf-
fer Austria's fate.
Poland, in turn, demanded ex-
planation of reports that Czechs were
massing troops near the Polish bor-
der.
Hitherto on the fence, Poland took
action apparently paralleling Ger-
many's despite recent urgent French
and British efforts to rally Warsaw
behind London and Paris.
The Soviet Union was ominously si-
lent.
Frane Watohes .London
France, committed to fighting for
Czechoslovakia In case of unproved
aggression against her, looked to Lon-
don for suppot.
In Whitehall, wearied Viscount
Halifax, British Foreign Secretary,
keptin touch with Europe's capitals
into the early morning hours. 'Czech-
oslovakia thrust reserve troops be-
hind barbed wire barricades today as
the slaying of two Nazis brought her
quarrel with her German minority to-
ward a climax dangerous to Europe's
peace.
Statesmen feared Germany's Adolf
Hitler, who has proclaimed himself
protector of Germans even outside the
borders of his nation, might be plan-
ning another of his lightning week-
end coups.
For the second day in succession,
Britain's Ambassador in Berlin, Sir
Neville Henderson, demanded reas-
surances concerning reported heavy
German troop movements toward the
Czechoslovak border.

Cedes Victory To Attorney
In Oregon Vote
PORTLAND, Ore., May 21.-(IP)--
Henry L. Hess, a 48-year-old attorney
backed by organized labor and two
New Deal leaders, won a spectacular
Democratic primary contest today
from Gov. Charles H. Martin, fiery
foe of what he called "labor terror-
ists."
The governor, who retired from the
army a decade ago as a major general\
went down to defeat in his bid for re-
nomination after as hot a battle as
this state eveosaw.
When he saw Hess' lead grow to
3,890 votes with only 332 small pre-
cincts missing, Martin conceded de-
feat.
Thus ended a campaign which,
through Martin's vigorous entry into
the Northwest's labor troubles and his
resulting barrage upon certain Roose-
velt functions and functionaries, drew
a number one billing on the nation's'
political stage.
The vote on which Martin s,1r-
rendered was 49,046 votes for Hess to
45,156 for himself in 1,349 of the
state's 1,681 precincts. 1

Mexican State-
In Civil War;
Crush Rebels
Government Says Papers
Prove Cedillo Leagued
With Foreign Interests
Attempted Cardenas
BombingIs Failure
SAN LUIS POTOSI, Mexico., May
21.-{P)-Federal troops smashed a
rebel band today in an outbreak of
warfare with followers of "strong
man" General Saturnino Cedillo.
A detachment of 200 cavalrymen
drove the rebel group out of the town
of Rio Verde in a night engagement.
Twenty-two rebels were reported
killed, 15 wounded, and 80 captured.
One Federal captain and two privates
were killed.
In Mexico City a high government
official said the government had in its
possession documents indicating Ce-
dillo had sought the aid of the ex-
propriated foreign oil industry in
carrying out his revolution against;
Cardenas.
Official Attacks Cedillo
This official, said the documents
showed further that Cedillo, Rightist
dictator of San Luis State, had prom-
ised the oil companies the return of
their properties in return, for their
aid.
A high-flying white airplane, re-
sembling those known to be in the
possession of Rebel Leader Cedillo,
dropped four bombs less than 100
yards from the temporary San Luis
residence of President Lazaro Car-
denas, commander of the Federal
troops.
The attacking plane dropped man-
ifestos signed by Gov. Hernandez
Netro, of San Luis Potosi State, and
four San Luis state legislators. It de-
clared they no longer recognized the
Cardenas government.'
Planes Drop Propaganda
The clash at Rio Verde 60 miles
east and south of here, followed
occupation of the town by Rebel sol-
diers. Government planes, which
yesterday flew over the hills to south
and west with bales of propaganda,
took off from San Luis with bombs
in their bomb racks and machine guns
loaded.
President Cardenas, determined
that Cedillo shall surrender his arms
and his peasant army to the gov-
ernment so that the nation's social-
istic program may go on without dan-
der of internal revolt, moved quickly
to crush the Rebel movement.

Keeps Track Title

Smith Works Ten Innings
Allowing Only Six Hits
But Errors Lose Game
Peckinpaugh Gets
Most Varsity Hits
By HERB LEV
SOUTHBEND, May 21.-(Special
to The Daily)-A tenth inning double
by Joe Nardone, Irish left fielder,
broke -up a pitching duel between
Burt Smith and Norvall Hunthausen
and gave Notre Dame's baseball team
a 3-2 victory over Michigan here to-
day and a split in the two-game series.
Smith pitched fine ball through-
out, allowing but six hits, but a pair
of errors led to his downfall. Burt
gave up only one bingle up to the
seventh inning, but the Irish managed
to break into the scoring column in
the fourth on two passes and a bad
throw by Don Brewer.
Notre Dame tied up the game in
the eighth when Nardone opened with
a single, took second on Smith's bad
throw, advanced to third on Jim Cor-
coran's sacrifice and counted on
Chuck Borowski's long fly to Kremer.
The winning run in the tenth was
scored in a similar manner. Nar-
done opened with a mighty double
down the left field foul line, Corcoran
sacrificed him to third, and he scored
once more on Borowski's fly to Kre-
mer.
Michigan was able to gather eight
hits off Hunthausen but the Irish
right-hander kept them well scat-
teied. The Wolverines counted in
the third on singles by Charley Pink,
Walt Peckinpaugh and an error by
Shortstop Braddock.
Capt. Butch Kremer's tremendous
three-base -clout -in the fifth -scored
Peckinpaugh with the second Michi-
gan run, but Butch was out trying'
for home to end a promising rally.
The Wolverines threatened again
in their half of the ninth. With one
man out, Smith reached first on
Braddock's bobble.
After Pink flew out Brewer walked
and Peckinpaugh lined a single to
center but Smith who attempted to
score from second was thrown out at
the plate by a fine throw on the part
of center fielder Borowski.

munition, aircraft ar~d supplies were
concentrated in San Luis State, of
which Cedillo long has been the
Rightist dictator.
Cedillo Thursday night declared
that he was ready to "repel all ag-

ple were "tired of the infamous dic-
tatorship, with communistic trim-
mings, that is putting an end to all
sources of wealth and submerging the
country in ruin and misery."

PWA May Not Use Funds,:
For Utilities Competing
Against Private Firms
WASHINGTON, May 21.-(W)-
Private utilities won a major conces-
sion today when the Senate Appro-
priations Committee wrote into the
administration's lending-spending bill
a drastic restriction on government-
financed .construction of public utility
systems.
The committee recommended the
bill to the Senate after increasing
House-approved appropriations by
$298,000,000. The group effected re-
ductions in some authorizationsfor
spending, however. The total now
included in the measure for both
lending and spending is $3,247,000,000,
compared with $3,154,000,000 voted
by the House.
The utilityrestriction, recommend-
ed by an appropriations subcommit-
tee, was adopted by a narrow margin
on a show of hands in the commit-
tee.
Under the limitation, PWA funds
could not be used to build utility sys-
tems which would compete with pri-
vately-owned plants if the latter were

Aigler Refuses Comment;
Michigan Given 1939
Outdoor Track Meet
COLUMBUS, 0., May 21.-(Spe-
cial to the Daily) -The possible re-
turn of the football training table, a
slight revision of eligibility rules, and
the award of the 1939 outdoor track
meet to Michigan featured the meet-
ing of the Western Conference fac-
ulty representatives here today.
The proposed training table would
provide for one meal a day after
practice sessions. It will go into efect
unless a member institution protests
within 60 days.
Professor William Marshall of Pur-
due, secretary of the body stated that
'the plan was unlikely to begin work-
ing this fall
Prof. Ralph Aigler, Michigan's rep-
resentative declined to comment until
he had presented\ the plan to the
Board in Control of Athletics. He in-
dicated that he- expected protests to
be forthcoming. Fielding , H. Yost,
Michigan's athletic director, also re-
fused to comment.
The revised eligibility rules provides
that inter-freshmen competition will
not count as a year of participation
in the future. This, automatically
makes John Rabb, star Ohio State
fullback eligible for 1938.
The award of the track meet was
expected. Ann Arbor has been the
only location which has consistently
Irawn good crowds.

Wolverines Corner 61 /2
Wisconsin's 37 2nd;
BuckeyesFinish 3rd
Watson Betters Own
Record In Shot Put
By BUD BENJAMIN
COLUMBUS, May 21.-(Special to
the Daily)-Michigan's mighty track
dynasty, ruler of the Western Confer-
ence 15 times since the turn of the
century, swept to another Big Ten
title here today.
Led by the incomparable Big Bill
Watson, who scored a "triple" by re-
taining his shot put, discus, and
broad jump titles and added a third
in the high jump just for good meas-
ure, the Wolverines amassedi 61%
points to far outdistance the field.
Only twice in conference history has
this total been bettered.
The rest of the teams trailed in the
following order: Wisconsin 37, Ohio
State 311/2, Indiana 27, Iowa 21, Illi-
nois 18, Chicago and Purdue 11, Min-
nesota 6, and Northwvestern 1.
Records were smashed in three
events as a disappointing crowd of
3,500 sat through intermittent rains
to watch the 38th ;unning of the
classic. Watson broke his owni shot
put mark in the qualifying round yes-
terday with a heave of 52 feet 111/
inches and tried only once to better
it today. He failed by over a foot.
The two record crackers today were
Wisconsin's Walter Mehl, who broke
Don Lash's Western Conference and
Collegiate two mile marks by tour-
ing the distance in 9 minutes 10.4
seconds, and Dave Albritton, the great
Negro high jumper 'of Ohio State,
who 'cleared the bar at 6 feet 7%
inches to top the old standard of an
ex-teammate, Mel Walker, who
jumped 6 feet 6% inches at Ann Arbor
last year.
The Wolverine powerhouse, as ex-
pected, rode to victory onits strength,
in the six field events where it ran;
up 35%/2 points. It added 26 more
on the track.
Besides Saginaw ,Bill's three firsts
and a third, the Hoytmen grabbed a
tie for first in the pole vault, a sec-
ond in the high jump, a fourth in
the shot, a third in the discus, and a
second in the javelin.
In the track events, they sdored
with a surprise second by Ross Faulk-
ner in the 440, a first and fourth in
the high hurdles, a second and fourth
in the lows, a third in the half by
game little Tommie Jester, a second
and fifth in the two mile, and a fifth
in the mile relay. They failed to
place in only three events.
But when the smoke had cleared
and the Wolverines had definitely in-
stituted themselves as repeat cha-
pions, it was the superb performance.
of Watson that remained as an in-
delible memory.
Bill didn't even have to don a suit
today. His marks were unapproach-
able. In the shot, his nearest com-
petitor, Dean Frary of Illinois, rested
at 48 feet 10 inches, more than four
feet behind him. In the discus, he
uncorked a heave of 154 feet 84
inches today, but the effort was su-
perfluous. His qualifying mark of
152 feet 4 % inches was good enough
to beat Frary who finished second at
145 feet 4 inches, two and a half
inches ahead of Michigan's John
Townsend.
He didn't even bother to broad
jump, his 24 feet 11 Inches of yes-
terday being ample to oust Bob Hub-
baro of Minnesota who failed to ex-
ceed the 24 feet 31/ inches he ne-
gotiated in the qualifying round.
Bill, not content to let matters
ride at 15 points, still had an ace up

Regents To Consider Proposal
For Course In Negro Culture

"It is less dangerous to be a pretty
good actor than it is to be a pretty

cine extending two generations back
couldn't stop me once I made up my
mind about the theatre," he continues
with a disarming smile.
Selwart will appear as the star of
"Liliom," which opens the second
week of the 1938 Dramatic Season
Tuesday evening at the Mendelssohn
theatre. It is his second appearance
in Ann Arbor, as he played here last

There is a long-felt need for a
University course in Negro history and
culture which would promote better'
inter-racial understanding on the
campus, in the opinion of Robert L.
Gill, Grad., whose resolution provid-
ing for such a course was passed
unanimously by the Student Senate
last Tuesday. The resolution is to be
sent to the Board of Regents for
consideration.
Lack of understanding and appre-
ciation of the Negro's position in
American history and of his contri-

ed to cover more than history alone.
History would be outlined, followed by
a discussion of the Negro's social and
economic status. . Next, the course
should touch upon the anthropologi-
cal aspects of the Negro race, he said,
and end with a more complete study
of the important part the race has
played in the development of culture.
Gill is of the opinion that there is a
wealth of material in this field, and
that it is desirable that several more-
specialized courses should be offered
in addition to the basic, generalized
one.
