Menace' To Peace
ROME, Oct. 28.- (P)-Premier
Benito Mussolini today celebrated
the 15th anniversary of Fascism's
rise to power with an open declara-
tion for treaty revision that would
give back Germany the African col-
onies stripped from her at the end
of the World War.
"Peace!" Mussolini declared was
the watchword for the 16th year of
Fascist power. But he added:
"For a durable and fruitful peace
it is necessary that Bolshevism be
eliminated in Europe, starting with
Spain. It is necessary that some
clauses of the peace, treaties be re-
vised.
t Speaks In Forum
"It is necessary that a great people,
the German people, have once more
the place to which they' are entitled
and which they once possessed in the
African sun."
The speech at Mussolini Forum,
in celebration of the 15th anniver-
sary of the Fascist march on Rome,
was the first time Mussolini clearly
and openly had thrown his weight
behind Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler's
renewed struggle for colonial pos-
sessions for Germany.
More than 100,000 Blackshirt lead-
ers heard Mussolini make what Fasc-
ist commentators said was the an-
nouncement to the world of his pro-
gram for the coming year. A Ger-
man delegation led by Rudolf Hess,
German Minister without portfolio
and Hitler's personal representative,
was present.
Salute Hitler
"Heil, Der Fuehrer!" the assembled
Blackshirts shouted in German as
the Nazi delegation marched into
Mussolini Forum. Since Monday
night the Fascist leaders had been
moving on Rome by truck and train
in a symbolic reenactment of the
march on Rome 15 years ago.
Diplomats interpreted Mussolini's
espousal of German colonial de-
mands as the result of an agreement
reached during his recent state visit
to Germany by which Italy and
Germany would march hand in hand
in colonial matters.

The Ann Arbor police had a busy
day yesterday.
Five stolen cars were reported
stolen by townspeople, but police de-
partment officials said that the autos
had merely been towed into a garage
because they had been parked diag-
onally on Huron Street last night
when the parallel parking order
into effect. The motorists paid
towage charges before their cars were
retsored.
Then officers had to go out and
re-arrest Floyd Macey, 38 years old
541 S. Fourth Ave., on a drunk and
disorderly charge after Mackey had
taken advantage of the confusion
at the police station where the de-
partment is being moved across the
hall to walk out while awaiting ar-
raignment.

Progressive Club To Call
Tri-State Convention Of
Liberal Student Groups
The AFL-CIO schism springs from
changes in machine technique that
have created a mass of easily re-
placeable unskilled workers, Robert
Horner of the economics department,
told 50 persons at the rcgressive
Club meeting last night in the Union.
"Union stupidity" in maintaining
high wages in the face of seasonal
and cyclical declines in the demand
for products was criticized by Mr.
Horner on the ground that workers
have often found themselves with
"beautiful wage scales but no jobs."
More intelligent union policy, Mr.
Horner said, consists in a disciplined
and responsible fight for labor's in-
terests without ruthlessness.
An Ann Arbor convention of lib-
eral students from Michigan and
parts of Ohio and Indiana is being
planned for Dec. 4 and 5 by the Pro-
gressive Club and the Wayne Univer-
sity American Student Union chap-
ter, Chairman Philip Cummins, '39,
announced.
Harry Purdy, '38, was elected tem-
porary president of the club last
night. Joseph Boyd, '38, was chosen
chairman of the racial and social
equality committee and George Mut-
nick, '38, chairman of the civil lib-
erties and academic freedom com-
mittee.
A lecture on Loyalist Spain's edu-
cational system by Joseph P. Lash,
national secretary of the American

r yAre Cast For Boycotting
; Prefers Neutrality Act To War Of Japan,_China, Spain

'Humiliation Of Pacifism'
Accepted Rather ThanI
Continued Warfare
Kirby Page shocked his audience
into a half-angry uproar when he
supported the Neutrality Act in the
discussion period which followed his
evening lecture.
But his support of the Neutrality
Act was based, he said, on accepting
the lesser of two evils, humiliating
pacifism rather than continued war-
fare.
"The Spanish people have suffered
more from their civil war than Italy
has under Fascism. A million killed,
damage irreparable - was is worse
than fascism. I say that as one who
looks with abhorrence on fascism.i
There's the very devil in fascism, but
there's a worse devil in the destruc-
tion of war."
He said that the application of theI
Neutrality Act, while it would have
helped Japan and perhaps brought
China to its knees, was still better
in doing this than the continued
killing of thousands of Chinese and
Japanese.
In the lecture itself Mr. Page laid
the responsibility for the Spanish
the Chinese-Japanese and the Ethio-
pian conflicts directly at the feet of
England, France and the United
States.
The difference between the have-
nots and the haves is not the diff-
erence between robbers and gentle-
men, it is the difference betweenI
robbers who awoke too late to rob
and thieves who have already beat
them to it, Mr. Page continued.
England, the United States, France
and Soviet Russia have a semi-mon-
opoly over the world's natural re-
sources, whereas Italy, Japan and
Germany have not enough to supplyI
the needs of their industries, he said.'

Man Is Entitled To Fair'
Share Of Total Amount
Of Product, He Says
A gray and haggard social evan-!
gelist lost his grayness and his fa-j
tigue yesterday as he rose in dynamic
eloquence and blasted capitalism, its
philosophy and its practices, among
men and among nations, before two
audiences that filled Natural Science
Auditorium.
"Religion is opium, .,religion is!
transforming power," Kirby Page,
noted author, world traveller and so-
cial evangelist prefaced his address.
"Man is entitled to a fair share of
the total amount of economic pro-
duct available to him and his breth-
ren. This is the answer of the 'high
religion' on the problem of distri-
bution." When a man lives in the
theory of this answer and in the
practice of the "Get asumuch as you
can school," he continued, "religion
is opium. It is a drug, it is paralysis."
Not till the end of his first lecture
did his audience fully understand
that the higher religion of which
Mr. Page spoke, the religion of mu-
tuality, equality and cooperation
and religion of transforming power
was a religion, a great part of whose
implications were those of socialism.
Mutuality, the ideal of the family,
service in ratio to one's strength,
consumption in ratio of one's need.
Page explained: Equality, implicit in
the idea of the brotherhood of man
under a divine intelligence. Cooper-.
ation, the only consistent method
and way of life which flows from the
principles of mutuality and equality.
Mutual suicide will be the ultimate
result of the continued existence of
our present property system, Mr.
5 Page continued. He painted a pic-
ture of millions of human beings
each struggling against each other
in the battlefield of life driven by
the idea of survival of the fittest and
of grabbing all they can.
He cited income figures for 1929;
10 billions for 36,000 families; 10
billions for 12 millions of others as
the catastrophic paradox of too much
and not enough purchasing power-_
not enough for the greater mass of
consumers of the country to keep
buying the output of industry.

By ALBERT MAYIO
