U.S. Offers Canada
TreatyTo Develop

Plans To Build A Channel
Giving Liners Access To
Interior Of United States
Seeks To Expand
Water Power Too
WASHINGTON, May 31.-(P)-
The United States offered Canada
tonight a comprehensive" treaty for
the planned development and use of
the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence basin.
The treaty contemplates a 27-foot
channel through which ocean-going
vessels may reach, the heart of both
countries and also a huge hydro-
electric power project.
This government, the State De-
partment announced, "is prepared to
finance the works necessary to carry
sea-borne commerce past the inter-
national rapids and to make possible
power development from these rapids
whenever desired by either country."
Expenses To Be Shared
Previous estimates place the total
cost at $543,429,000, of which the
American share would be $272,453,-
000 (about $225,000,000 of new
money) and the Canadian $270,976,-
The treaty obliges the United
States to proceed with the work at
once but lets Canada postpone her
work until December 31, 1949, when
her power needs are keener.
In effect, the United States agrees
to build and pay for a hydroelectric
dam in the international rapids sec-
tion of the St. Lawrence.
w Canada 'builds a deep waterway
canal around the rapids, but the
United States finances it.
-Secretary of State Hull, in a note
to Canadian Minister Sir Herbert
Marler accompanying , the draft
treaty, said the proposed accord

taking under the supervision of this
commission of the proposed remedial
works to preserve the scenic beauty
of Niagara Falls;

Senate Votes
Relief Funds
$50,000,000 Obtainable
For Emergeney
WASHINGTON, May 31.--()-The
Senate voted today to make $50,000,-
000 of WPA funds available for direct
relief in event of emergency, but re-
jected a proposal by Senator Van-
denberg (Rep., Mich.) that the
amount be increased to $150,000,000.
The emergency cash would be set
aside from the proposed WPA Ap-
propriation of $1,425,000,000 provided
in the $3,000,000,000 Lending-Spend-
ing bill.

Vandenberg said the plight of the
larger industrial cities was a "clear
indication" that more direct relief
would be necessary to supplement the
existing systei.
Inclusion of even $50,000,000, Van-
denberg said, constituted "recognition
that the relief problem may become
too large to be handled by work re-
lief alone."
Senator Byrnes (Dem., S.C.) ob-
jected to Vandenberg's proposal, say-
ing it would be a departure from

Nazi Church Fight
Reported Near End
BERLIN, May 31.-(P)-Reichs-
,fuehrer Adolf Hitler is reliably re-
ported in Protestant church circles to

be convinced that Nazi opposition to
the church should cease.
There is no official evidence as yet
of any orders to that effect, but the
understanding among prominent
Protestant churchmen is that Hitler
has reached the conclusion extreme
Nazi criticism is not stamping out
the church.
Hitler is pictured as disappointed
that the Nazi so-called "German
Christian" movement did not sweep
the church as he imagined it would.

In 8-6 Contest
Peckinpaugh Elected '39
Captain By Teammates;
15 Letterwinners Named
Shwing no regard for past records
or reputations, Michigan's Varsity
baseball tean ended its season in im-
pressive fashion by drubbing the'
highly touted California nine, 8-6
yesterday afternoon on Ferry Field.
At a. meeting of the lettermen af-,
ter the game, Walter Peckinpaugh,
third baseman from East Cleveland,
Ohio, was elected captain of the
team for the 1939 season, succeeding
Merle Kremer. At the same time,
Bill Crowe of Grand Rapids was chos-
en next year's manager, with George
McKain of Detroit as alternate. The,
four new junior managers are Jackk
Cooper, Hugh Wagner, Otto Becker,
and John Rane.
Bears' Record Broken
The Golden Bears, champions of#
the Pacific Coast Conference, came
to Ann Arbor with a record of 10
straight victories on their eastern
trip. However all great teams have7
off-days, and California had theirs
yesterday. While the Wolverinesl
clubbed the offerings of California's
star right-hander, Bill Priest, for 11t
hits, his teammates contributedt
greatly to his downfall by commit-
ting eight errors in the field.
Burt 'Bucko' Smith, pitching hisI
last game for Michigan, went the1
distance for the Wolverines and al-
lowed the coast boys seven safeties.r
Only in the fourth inning, when he1
was touched for three runs including
a long home run by Melbin Duza-
beau, was Burt in any deep trouble.
Both Score In First
Both teams started early and,
scored a run apiece in the first in-
hing. The Bears counted on a pair of
walks and a single by Tony Firpo, but
Michigan came back to knot the score
in their half, Don Brewer counting
on Peckinpaugh's mighty triple to
right center.

Estimates of the dead ran as high
as 500. There were many wounded.
Almost simultaneous with the

Grannollers bombardment, the Brit-
ish freighter Penthames was bombed
and sunk in an Insurgent air raid
on Valencia harbor and inmates of
three Madrid hospitals were endan-
gered in an intensive Insurgent
shelling of the southwestern part of
that city.
Five tri-motored Insurgent planes
poured a torrent of bombs on the
Granollers market place and on long
lines of men, women and children
waiting to get potato rations.
The raid caught many women out

50 persons were killed, at another,

s With President Roosevelt's consent,
his legislative lieutenants pigeon-
holed a Government reorganization
bill today until the next Congres-

acting Chairman Warren (Dem.,

joint statement:
"No further effort will be made to

The announcement, officially

Bill Killed
On that date the House, by a vote
of 204 to 196, sent the reorganization
bill back to a special committee. For a
time that was believed to be the end
of the measure, but more recently
there had been reports the con-
troversy would be reopened.
The decision to abandon the leg-
islation for the session was reached
at a morning White House conference
attended by the President, Speaker
Bankhead and Senator Barkley of
Kentucky and Representative Ray-
burn of Texas, the two Democratic

vised Mr. Roosevelt that a formal dec-

dilatory Senate tactics against the

Spending Bill Delayed
Admi istration leaders had ex-
pressed belief that some Senators had
been delaying the $3000,000,000 bill
to make certain there would be .in-
sufficient time this session to revive
the Reorganization measure, which
has many bitter opponents in both
Byrnes and Warren projected the
Reorganization problem into the next

greater efficiency and practical econ-

sponsored jointly by Chairman
Byrnes (Dem., S.C.) of the Senate

SHANGHAI, June 1., (Wednesday),
-(P)--Both Chinese and Japanese
claimed victory today in one of the
greatest air battles of the war in
Which more than 100 planes fought
high over Hankow.
A Japanese naval communique de-
clared 30 Japanese planes raided
Generalissimo Chiang Kai - Shek's
capital and shot down 20 Chinese
planes while only one of their own
failed to return.
China's aviation headquarters,
however, declared 54 Japanese planes
attempted to make the raid but were
beaten off with a loss of 1 planes.
Disputing Japanese reports that the
Hankow airfield was heavily bombed,
Chinese declared the Japanese were
prevented from carrying out the raid.
While Japanese planes struck at
Hankow and Canton, ground forces
of both armies apparently were dead-
locked again in the vicinity of Lan-
feng, along the Lunghai railroad in
central China.
Severe fighting was reported among
the mud-walled villages between the
Lunghai and the Yellow River with
Chinese troops still counter-attack-
ing to break the Japanese drive west-
ward toward Hankow.
Chinese pursuit planes, Chiang's
air officials said, knew in advance of
the approach of Japan's air raiders
and hovered hawklike above Hankow
When the invaders appeared, they
said, the Chinese planes dove and
scattered the Japanese squadrons,
engaging them in thrilling dogfights,
part of which could be seen from the
city below.

New Deal Charge

WASHINGTON, May 31. - The
Supreme Court today directed its
guns at the New Deal when, n ar
unprecedented per urliam opinion,I
reprimanded Solicitor General Rob-
ert H. Jackson and Secretary of Ag-
riculture Wallace for charging that
the tribunal was inconsistent.
The 6 to 1 vote was taken at the
Court's closing session with Justices
Stanley F. Reed and Benjamin N.
Cardozo absent and Justice Hugo L.
Black dissenting but filing no writ-
ten protest.
Challenge Decisions
When the Supreme Court on April
25 voided rates imposed by Secretary
Wallace on Kansas City stockyards
commission men, the secretary of
agriculture challengedthe decision as
a reversal of a 1936 opinion written
by Chief Justice Hughes and warned
him of a new court fight.
The court based its position in the
stockyards case on the claim of
plaintiffs that they had not been
given a fair hearing and that the
agriculture department failed to fife
intermediary reports, It called this
procedure "more than an irregularity
in practice, it is a vital defect."
Wallace, in a series of statements,
said that the procedure condemned
was inherited from the previous ad-
ministration and had been aban-
doned since the stockyards order was
Jackson said the court ruled two
years ago in the same Kansas City
case that the procedure was of no
significance but now holds that it 1s
"fatally defective.,"
Calls Attack Unwarranted
"We do not here question the pwer
of the, court to reverse its previous
decision if .it considers it to have
been erroneous," the Solicitor Gen-
eral said a week and a half ago. "We
do suggest that the reversal warrants
a rehearing.'
The court called his attack unwar-
ranted and said:
"Not only are the two decisions in-
consistent, but the rule announced in
our former opinion was applied and
was decisive of the present appeal,
and the government is in no position
to claim surprise. The .statement
made in the petition for rehearing
that the present decision is con-
trary to the law of the case as de-
clared in our first opinion is wholly
