German Bombers Guilty
Of 14th Border Violatio

Lone Plane Sighted
Over Skoda Works
PRAGUE, May 26.-(t)a---Two Ger-
man bombers were reported to hav
crossed the Czechoslovak frontier to-
day near Asch, home town ofi Kon-
rad Henlein, Sudeten German leader
The incident followed upon othe
cases of aerial trespassing which aid-
ed in deepening pessimism',over pros-
pects of areal peace between
Sslovakia and her minority of 3,500,00
Henlein's home town is in the
western extremity of the country.
Czechs Send Planes
The semiofficial report said that
the Czechoslovak air defense had
sighted the bombers late in the af-
ternoon and sent up two pursuit
ships. The invaders thereupon were
said to have swung back over Ger-
man territory.
Earlier today a government spokes-
man reported three border violations
yesterday by German aircraft. In
one case, he said, a war plane was
sighted over the famous Skoda muni-
tions works at Pilsen, 50 miles from
the frontier.
The foreign office already had in-
formed German Minister Ernst Eis-
enlohr that there had been 14 in-
stances of border violations, involving
34 German planes, between last
Thursday and yesterday.
In some instances, it was declared,
the planes crossed in formation.
Peace Plans Blocked
LONDON, May 2.-()-Great
Britain today sought to speed Euro-
pean appeasement by settling the
Spanish nonintervention question,
but Soviet Russia stepped squarely
into her path.'
At the same time Britain sounded
out Germany and Czechoslovakia on
the idea of letting British overservers
help calm the Sudeten German fur-
ore. She also promised to consider
dispatch of an international com-
mission to investigate German-Czech
border incidents.
Russia made it clear to the nonin-
tervention subcommittee in London
that she would accept no plans for
European appeasement which left
her out in the cold.
Nations Accept Proposal
She alone blocked British plans for
a hands-off-Spain agreement expect-
ed to open the way for consumma-
tion of the Easter Anglo-Italian
friendship pact, resumption of
French-Italian negotiations, and ul-
timately Prime Minister Neville
Chamberlain's coveted four-power
All nine nations represented on the
subcommittee accepted the British
proposal that withdrawal of 10,000
foreign volunteers from each side,
Government and Insurgent, should
be considered sufficient to warrant
granting of belligerent rights to both.
Detroit Dean Calls
Esquire Mere Filth;
A sks Fight By Mail
"Filth on shiny paper," was the
way the Rev. Joseph A. Luther, dean
of men of the University of Detroit
characterized "Esquire" magazine in
an address before the annual ban-
quet of the League of Catholic
Women last night in the League. He
spoke on "The Evil of Obscenity and
the Fight to Abolish It."
Reverend Luther became interest-
ed in the magazine drive five years
ago and has been carrying on a cam-
paign with both Catholics and Pro-
testants in Detroit against obscene

magazines. Letters by the public to
advertisers in these magazines would
be the most effective means of main-
taining decency in publications, Rev-
erend Luther said.
The groups opposed to obscene
magazines have gone to court seven
times in the last year, according to1
Reverend Luther, and fines were
imposed against one man selling
these magazines. Publishers of the
ten cent sex magazines ask why
they do not go after Esquire, claim-
ing that the man who has only tenz
cents has the same right to buy a
sex magazine as the man with 50
cents, he said.1

Washington Seen Worried
Over Europe's Moves To
Latin-American Fascism
WASHINGTON, May 26.-(A'-The
navy, taking a step interpreted by
Senator Borah (Rep., Ida.) as a warn-
ing to Fascist nations, announced to-
day that the United States fleet would
be shifted temporarily to the Atlantic
early next year for war games off
the coast of South America.
Borah, a member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee, said
it was his guess that the shift of the
fleet, which has been in the Pacific
most of the time since 1932, was a
caution to' totalitarian states not to
interfere in affairs of the Western

Snick s Homer
With 3 On Tops
Wisconsin, 5-1
Breaks Up 10-Inning Tie
As Fishman Scatters 5
Hits; Both Score In 2nd
MADISON, Wis., May 26.--(P)--
Herman Fishman's five-hit pitching
and Dan Smick's powerful bat gave
the University of Michigan a 5-1
win over Wisconsin after ten in-
nings of snappy baseball here today.
Smick's homer with the bases
loaded in the tenth, gave the Wol-
verines their margin of victory. In
addition Danny pounded out a triple
and a single to take all batting hon-
ors. Fishman's tantalizing slow
curve held the Badgers in check
throughout the contest.
Both teams scored in the second.
The visitors took the lead when Pete
Lisagor singled to short right driving
in Captain "Butch" Kremer who had
walked and advanced to third on
two infield outs.
Wisconsin came back to tie the
score on a single to left by Russ
Dismeier, a sacrifice by Andy Smith,
and an error by Lisagor on Bill
Demark's grounder allowing Dismeier
to tally.
Both teams battled on even terms
for the next seven frames, but in
the tenth Ch'arley Pink beat out a
bunt to second. Don Brewer also
bunted and reached first safely when
Smith, Badger third sacker, fumbled,
Pink taking second. Walt Peckin-
paugh sacrificed both runners and
Kremer was purposely passed, filling
the bags. Then came Smick's ter-

BALTIMORE, May 26.-Dr. John
Jacob Abel, 81, a Michigan graduate
and formerly a professor of phar-
mocology at the University, died here
today, it was reported by the Asso-
ciated Press.
Dr. Abel famous in the research
field, was credited with two majorI
advances in medical science, namelyc
the isolation of adrenalin and the
isolation of insulin in crystal form.c
His achievements with adrenalin
and insulin won him in 1927 thec

Asking that his name not be used,
another member of the Foreign Re-

Lilienthal Calls
A. E. Morgan
Says He Held Up Law Suit
Vital To TVA, Denying
Charges Of Misfeasance
WASHINGTON, May 26.-/P)-Dr.
Arthur E. Morgan, deposed chair-
man of Tennessee Valleye Authority,
impassively heard himself accused
today of having tried to "obstruct
and sabotage" the government's con-
duct of a law suit upon whose out-
come the very life of TVA depended.
His accuser, David E. Lilienthal,
youthful director of the power
agency, laid this charge before the
congressional TVA investigating com-
mittee. Lilienthal also entered a ve-
hement denial of misfeasance, dis-
honesty and mismanagement charges,
lodged against him yesterday by Dr.
Referring to a suit brought by 18
private utilities to test the constitu-
tionality of TVA, Lilienthal said:
"The documented record of Arthur
Morgan's conduct in this matter is
discreditable. It is a record which
suggests that he was seeking to find
a way to secure a judicial decision
against his own agency. It is a rec-
ord of tampering with prospective
witnesses for the government, and of
obstructing and harrassing counsel
and witnesses in the very heat of a
crucial constitutional case."
Lilienthal, moreover, asked the
committee to investigate whether
or not Morgan "did secretly attempt
to conceal evidence" of vital'import-
ance to TVA in the celebrated Berry
Marble claims case.
The committee adjourned tonight
for an indefinite period after a two-
day session, in which Dr. Arthur
Morgan made his charges against
Lilienthal andDr. Harcourt Mor-
gan, now chairman of TVA, and the
latter two made their denials and

His Slate I Wisconsin Poll'
Loses; Editor Unnamed
MADISON, Wis., May 26.- -()-
Richard J. Davis of New York, oust-1
ed as executive editor of the Daily
Cardinal, University of Wisconsin
campus newspaper, lost his fight for
the editorship today when a student
election gave an 81 vote margin to,
the control board members who re-,
fused to retain Davis. .
Davis' candidates received 2,600
votes to 2,681 for the opposing slate1
as less than half the student body
f 11,000 balloted.
The victorious board members are
cheduled to meet tomorrow to select
a. new editor.
The election was sponsored by
President Clarence A. Dykstra after
Davis supporters insisted he was
ousted illegally following appoint-
ment by the retiring board. The

Loyalist Doom
In Spain's War
Tells Adult Education Club
Meeting A Dictatorship
Is Goal Of Insurgents
The cause of the government in
Spain is doomed, Prof. Arthur S.
Aiton of the history department said

meetings of the Institute of Adult
The meetings, sponsored by the Ex-
tension Service of the University will
merge today with the School Health
Education Institute meeting, con-
ducted by Division of Hygiene and
Public Health in cooperation with the
Michigan School Health Association.
Even in the event of a rebel vic-
tory, Professor Aiton said, a military
dictatorship will be set up, but un-
like Germany's, the government
would be Christian in character be-
cause of the predominance of the
Catholic religion. The history pro-
fessor based his prediction on the
Insurgents' capture of wheat and
food centers and their hard thrusts
at the Loyalist lines.
Speaking on the Sino-Japanese
war, Yuen-Zang Chang of the Ori-
ental languages and literature de-
partment, predicted that the Jap-
anese will carry on the war until
they reach the tungsten area in
southern China, and then will have
to take over the entire country.
He denied that Japan is justified
in attacking China on the excuses
that she is fighting Conmunism and
needs room for expansion. He stated
that a document from Japan in 1931
showed plans for a world empire with
conquest of China as the first step.
Prof. Lawrence Preuss of the polit-
ical science department, speaking on
the United States' neutrality policy,
said that the most we can expect
is that it will protect us against in-

'Birth Of Baby'
Movie To Pla y
Locally Junte 11
Medical Society Sanctions
Movie As 'Educational';
Censored In New York
"Birth of a Baby," educational film
over which a storm of controversy
arose in New York, will be shown at
the Majestic Theatre, June 11, with
the approval of the Washtenaw
County Medical Society which pre-
viewed the film Wednesday night.
The sanction of the medical group
was necessary under terms of re-
strictions concerning the showing of
the film. Action was taken by the
local board of directors after the en-
dorsement of the Michigan State
Medical Society was obtained.
Dr. S. L. LaFever, president of
the society, yesterday recommended
the picture as "purely educational
and scientific. There is nothing ob-
jectionable whatsoever from a moral
standpoint," he said, "and its show-
ing is entirely desirable."
The film, stills from which caused
the banning of "Life" magazine in
several cities recently, was made
under the auspices of the American
Committee on Maternal Welfare,
Inc., and aims to save the lives
and health of mothers and babies
by disseminating detailed informa-
tion concerning maternity in terms
of a true-to-life story.
