Deputies Approve
Chautemps Policy1
To Stick To Allies

Nevertheless French Plan
To Attempt Conciliation
With Germany, Italy
Paris Keeps Faith
In League Efficacy
PARIS, Feb. 26.-)-The Cham-
ber of Deputies tonight endorsed by
439 votes to two the government's for-
eign policy of sticking to France's
central European allies and following
Britain's lead for "realistic" dealings
with Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany.
The overwhelming vote of confi-
dence came at the end of two days
of debate.
Supporters of the government and
some of its enemies hailed it as evi-
dence of France's unity in foreign
affairs, and leftists caled it "bad news
for Hitler."
During the debate, Foreign Minister
Yvon Delbos coupled a pledge that
France's engagements with Czecho-
slovakia would be "faithfully filled"
with a warning that "the setting up
of any political hegemony in the Dan-
ubian region is not possible."
Explains Policy
Premier Camille Chautemps de-
clared that France never would aban-
d.n her alliances or her friends-par-
ticularly Great Britain-and said that
her policy must be neither isolation
with her allies nor surrender.
He affirmed that France's foreign1
policy still was pinned to the League
of Nations.
The two deputies who voted againstl
the confidence motion were extreme
rightists, Rene Brommange and1
Georges Cousin.
Chautemps' appeal for unity was
followed by many extreme rightists1
abstaining rather than voting against
the cabinet. These were deputies who
normally are opponents of all gov-
erniment measures.
'bie Communists gave a solid vote
for the Premier.
Backed By Peoples' Party
The order of1 ie day on which the
vote was taken was signed by all
leaders of the People's Front Parties,
including the Communist Party.
Delbos was the first public an-
nouncement by the government since
the rise of Nazi influence in Austria
and the new turn of British policy.
Despite the communist and social-
ist conviction that negotiations with
Germany and Italy would lead only
to trouble, none of the spokesmen for k
those parties shut the door on talks
with the two nations.
Rightists too, although urging the
necessity for an understanding with
the authoritarian states, emphasized
France's military strength and made
no suggestion that the military al-
liance with Czechoslovakia and close
contacts with Rumania and Yugo-
slavia should be abandoned.

Rumors have been flying around

would be a sale of liquor damaged
in the $50,000 fire which destroyed the
state liquor store last Thursday. Em-
poyees of the store, however, declare
they know nothing about it if the
state commission is contemplating
such a sale. Any action on a sale

Thomas Mann, considered by many
the world's greatest living novelist
and man of letters, will lecture
Thursday in Hill Auditorium in what
will probably be the outstanding lit-
erary event of the year here.
Dr. Mann landed in this country
last week to begin his first lecture
tour of the United States. An exile
fr=n his native Germany because of
his opposition to the anti-democratic
policies of the Hilter regime, he has
resided for the past several years in
Switzerland, and travels with a
Czechoslovakian passport, having
been deprived of his German citizen-
ship as well as his home and his prop-,
erty by Nazi decree.
In spite of his treatment at the
hands of the Hitler govenment, Dr.
Mann still feels himself to be a Ger-
man. "Those people who have over-
run Germany for the time being can-
not make me any less a German," he
has declared. He is convinced that
Hiliterism will some day be supplant-
ed in Germany by the democracy of
which he has been so staunch a de-
Dr. Mann's career as a world lit-
erary figure began nearly 40 years
ago with publication of his monumen
tal novel, "Buddenbrooks," which
immediately elevated its author to
the foremost rank of continental
writers. It was "The Magic Moun-
tain," however, published nearly a
quarter of a century later, which gave
its author the position he holds in
contemporary letters. His other works
have included "Royal Highness,"

concern" over the present European.
crisis, but added, "I think that Secre-
tary of State Hull has everything
under control."
Business conditions in New York
City, the mayor said, have not ap-
preciably improved" in recent weeks.
Immediate government action in the
form of an intensive building pro-'
gram, he asserted, would be very
helpful in bringing about the return
of prosperity.
His recent visit to Washington to
discuss the relief problem the mayor
characterized as another indication
that "the larger cities are drawing '
closer to Washington" and farther4
away from their state capitals.
Asked to comment on the apparentI
defeat of the anti-lynching bill, May-
or La Guardia said, "The very need
for such a bill is regrettable in our
advanced civilization. The power and
strength of the federal government
should be extended in order to guar-I
antee the safety of individuals. The
argument that lynchings have de-
creased in recent years is no argu-
ment at all."
With Mayor La Guardia was Paul

City Civil Service Commission. Mr.

Allen Nets Four Markers
To Lead Mates In Win

Class Against OSU
Smack Allen's inspired playing, plus
a fractured Gopher skull last night
gave Michigan a share in the Big Ten
ice title with Minnesota. The Wol-
verine hockey team scored three times
in the third period to win 5-3, before
as large a crowd as the Coliseum ever
An extremely hard-shot puck rep
moved Minnesota's net-minder from
the fray and indirectly gave the Var!-

chance. The puck caught him on
the forehead dropping him cold. In'-
experienced Bill Bredesen, erstwhle
defenseman, thereupon donned the
pads and later proved to be an easy
target for the Michigan line.
Although the game was marked by
intermittent skirmishes it was cleanly-
played as a whole. Few penalties were
called. The many body checks kept
the boys sprawling and were neatly

four goals and an assist on the fifth,

Nazis Are Not The Oridgnators
Of Anschluss, Wheeler Asserts

Agitation for German union with'
Austria and with minorities outside '
its borders are not innov~at(ions of the
present regime in Geriany, but have
exi tcd ever since the World War,
Prof. Benjamin W. Wheeler of the
history departnuent said yesterday.
Original efforts at annexation,
however, came from the groups to
be annexed, Professor Wheeler de-
clared, and were stifled by the Allies
in the peace treaties of the war. The
leaders of the new Austria that fol-
lowed the fall of the Austrian empire
intended to unite with Germany, and
this intention was expressed in the
preamble of the first draft of its
constitution, which contained the
statement that Austria is an integral
part of the German Reich.
"Despite the suppression of annex-
ation ideas by the Allies," Professor
Wheeler said, "sentiment for such a
union existed to a large degree in
Austria up to the time of Hitler
and National Socialism. Since that
time the anti-anFnexa tion groups have
increased in power and have retained
control of the government, definitely

terminable, Professor Wheeler ex-
plained, but such an interest does
exist. Probably there is this change,
that much of the agitation today is
led by the National Socialist groups
rather than those interested in the
natural Austro-German tie.
Much of the agitation in regard
to the German minorities in Czecho-
slovakia can also be traced to post-
war disappointments, Professor
Wheeler declared. Point 13 in Pres-
ident Wilson's famous Fourteen
Points for Peace indicated self-de-
termination for the peoples of the
Austrian empire, of which Czechmslo-
vakia was a part. This proposal, he
said, gave the German subjects of
Czechoslovakian expectations of be-
coming part of a larger Germany.
"Instead they were made a part of
Czechoslovakia," he pointed out," in
complete opposition to their hopes.
In Czechoslovakia they have kept
themselves largely apart, maintain-
ing separate political parties and a
feeling of cultural and political dif-
ference from the rest of the country.
They have never been part of the
German republic, but they have al-
