MADRID, March 9.-(AP)-Com-
munist General Headquarters outside
Madrid surrendered tonight to Gen.
Jose Miaja.
The Communists capitulated after
their position on the Alcala road
where they had cut the capital's com-
munications with Valencia, had been
bombed by Republican planes.
Fourteen hundred prisoners were
Both Miaja's Republican regime
and his Communist foes summoned
aid from outside tonight as their
civil war within Spain's larger con-
flict continued through its fourth day.
Franco In Readiness
Miaja sent his bombing planes and
infantry against the Communists still
holding out in the Madrid region,
maintaining their rebellion against
his National Defense Council and its
declared intention to seek peace with
Generalissimo Francisco France.
The Republican regime called on
troops from outside the city to help
smash the Communists, apparently
entrenched in Madrid's outskirts de-
fying Miaja's demands for surrender.
The Communists, too, called on sym-
patetic battalions outside to join
Meanwhile Franco's armies were
hegl in readiness on the civil war
front that runs through Madrid's
western suburbs, apparently awaiting
the outcome of the conflict between
the nationalists' foes.
The Communist rebels were report-
ed to have severed the Madrid-Val-
encia highway at one time today. The
Republican junta later announced
that an entire army corps, coming to
aid the junta, had taken the Commu-
nists by surprise, six miles east of
Madrid, capturing the rebels there or
putting them to flight.
A similar Communist outbreak was
reported in Valencia, the largest sea-
port remaining in Republican hands.
The Madrid junta broadcast an an-
nouncement that 19 rebels already
had been shot there.
Bomb Madrid Buildings
Madrid Communists picked as their
strongholdian unfinished massive red
brick building on top of Paseo de la
Castellana, Madrid's Park Avenue,
where the Government had been rais-
ing a huge office building on the site
of the old Hippodrome racetrack.
Bombs from Miaja's planes left
gaping holes in the walls, just as na-
tionalist bombs have blasted the mag-
nificent unfinished buildings in
University City on Madrid's western
outskirts since the siege of Madrid
started in November, 1936.
Miaja's Cabinet met in continuous
session. Republican radio reports said
Communists were surrendering in
incerasing numbers at Barrajas and
Canillejas, east of the capital.

Police Warn Of Necessity
For Rabies Treatment
Richard Wysong, Grad., of 503 E.

ment today as a result of a bite suf-
fered when a mad dog ran loose in a
student rooming house district
March 4.
Discovery yesterday that the ani-

police for any students who were bit-

,Revelation that the, dog was suf-
fering from rabies was made enly
yesterday by Dr- Herbert W. Emer-

Police received a call from the East
Jefferson St. neighborhood Sunday
morning that the sick dog was in the
vicinity. The dog was found by the
officers and turned over to the
Humane Society. It died- soon after.

Three Varsity Teams Seek
Conference Titles Tonight




To Win Big

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Special to
The Daily).-Michigan's Big Ten
championship aspirations re-
ceived an unexpected stimulus
here with the announcement that
Alex McKee, of Ohio State, count-
ed on for second place in the
breast stroke, would not be able
to swim today. McKee contracted
a severe case of mumps and was
confined in the isolation ward
of the Ohio State University hos-
Coach Mike Peppe of the Buck-
eyes, is now almost resigned to a
Michigan victory. Said Peppe:
"That would have meant four
points for us had McKee swum
true to form."
Three undefeated Michigan teams
are on the road today, all with a single
objective-Big Ten championships in
track, swimming, and wrestling.
On the Chicago front the Wolverine
track and wrestling teams will de-
fend their Big Ten titles, while at
Lafayette, Ind, a crew of record-
shattering swimmers will try to wrest
the conference crown from Ohio
Coach Charlie Hoyt's last team at
an Indoor Big Ten meet will be fav-
ored at Chicago to take down the
track title for the sixth straight year
but Wisconsin is expected to offer
enough opposition to make an inter-
esting battle against the Wolverines'
balanced power.
Michigan's defending individual
champions, Elmer Gedeon and Bill
Watson, are conceded excellent
chances to cra k Conference stand-.
ards in the hurdles and shot-put
respectively. The 70-yard hurdle mark
is the oldest in the book among Big
Ten Indoor records and Gedeon,
who will likely have Wisconsin's Ed
Smith at his heels all the way, may
well equal or better the time of
Captain Watson, who now holds
the Conference shot-put record at 50

LONDON, March 9. -1-)- The
British Government believes the
European situation is much improved
and hopes for some form of limited
disarmament this year, informed
quarters said today.
London newspapers were unani-
mous in reporting that this view was
held in high government circles while=
The Daily Mail said flatly:
"Mr. Chamberlain is planning to
call a conference of big powers to
consider calling a halt to the arms
race in Europe, possibly before the
end of the summer."
These developments followed the
disclosure today that Britain engaged
in her greatest peace-time rearma-
ment program, was spending more
than $1,000,000 a day for airplanes
alone and expects to have 2,250 first
line fighting planes by April 1.
The view was held in informed
quarters that as soon as the Spanish
war is over, differences between Italy"
and France over Fascist agitation for
French territory and other conces-
sions might be settled at the confer-
ence table.
Britain was represented as believ-
ing that Italy's demands would be
much more moderate than has been
generally expected.
It was explained that London did
not attach much importance to un-
official Fascist claims on French-ruled
Tunisia, Corsica and Nice, which have

been advanced through the Italian
press and in street demonstrations.
If progress is made toward arma-
ment limitation, Chamberlain was
represented as read to "talk colonies"
with Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler ,of

Fred Janke Among Those
Failing Physical Exam;
Alternates Are Named
Fred Janke, '39, last year's varsity
football captain and three other stu-
dents previously enrolled in the new
government flight training course
were labeled ineligible yesterday for
participation because of failure to
pass the Army surgeons' physical ex-
Janke, along with G. Howard Car-
rothers, '39E, Daniel Grudin, '40E,
and John C. Ohrt, '40 were notified of
their failure by the aeronautical en-
gineering department yesterday. All
four students had previously passed
preliminary examinations at the
health service.
Four alternates were immediately
announced by the aeronautical en-
gineering department. They are:
Jerald J. Frericks, '39E, Hans Weich-
sel, '41E, Fred W. Wolcott, '39, and
Roy Heath, '39. Physical examina-
tions were given these students yes-
terday but final results will not be
available for some time.
Health Service doctors declared
that they were unfamiliar with the
specific requirements of the Army
tests. The Civil Aeronautical Au-
thority communication did not dis-
close what physical defects were
found but their examinations were
said to include a complete check-up
of the heart, lungs, blood pressure,
vision and depth perception.

Spanish Priest'
From Madrid
Speaks Today
Catholic Church Questions
Father Lobo's Standing;
Group Denies Charges
Father Leocadio Lobo of the Ma-
drid parish of San Gines who will
speak at 4 p.m. today in the Union,
under the auspices of the American
Student Union comes here under con-
flicting charges regarding his official
position in the Catholic Church.I
According to information received1
from the Catholic Welfare Confer-
ence, the Father was suspended by
his bishop in December, 1936, and
does not represent the views of the
church. Denying this charge, the
Medical Bureau to aid Spain headed
by William Cardinal O'Connel, of1
Boston, claims that he is in full ex-
ercise of his orders and has cele-
brated mass o the way to America.
Father Berry of the Student
Chapel here has received reports that
Cardinal Gomay Tomas, primate of
Spain said in a telegram to a mem-
ber of the English Parliament that
the suspension of Father Lobo has
never been revoked and that he wast
denied the right to lead mass at Mi-
lan, Brussels and Paris. Father Lo-
bo, however, who is here at the ur-
gent request of the people of his pa-
rish, comes with the full permission7
of the Vicar General of Madrid, the
Rev. Heriberto Prieto. While in Paris
on his way to this country he was
warmly received by Cardinal Verdier,
archbishop of Paris and sustained in'
his purpose to tell the truth about'
conditions in Republican Spain.
Shaemus O'Sheel, Irish poet who
has been active for 35 years in the
cause of Irish freedom vill also speak
at the meeting.
Pieters, Charged
With Bookmaking,
Goes On Trial Soon
Th case of John R. Pieters, of
Kalamazoo, charged with running a
football pool, will be considered in
the March term of the Circuit Court
which convened Monday, Prosecutor
Albert J. Rapp said yesterday.
Pieters, who was arrested Tues-
day, Nov. 22 on a complaint sworn
out by Earl Holloway, Jr., '4BAd.,
of Flint, pleaded not guilty at the
time of his arraignment before Just-
ice of the Peace Jay H. Payne and
was released on a $500 bond.
Edward F. Conlin, counsel for Piet-
ers, has been ill and has not as yet
entered a formal plea, and Prosecutor
Rapp could not say definitely when
the trial will appear on the calendar.
The alleged pool operator, owner
of the City Cigar Store at 106 E.
Huron, did not pay off an estimated
$3,600 in winnings to students and
townspeople on the football games of
Saturday, Nov. 18. When contacted by
The Daily, while police were search-
ing for him, he claimed that his

Wrote To Shaw1
"Eight months ago I wrote a letter,
to President R. S. Shaw asking him
whether or not members of the fac-
ulty (Dean of Veterinary Ward Gilt-1
ner, Dean Emmons, Treasurer Schep-
ers and others) continued to rent
farms that they owned to the col-;
lege for the purpose of pasturing
cattle effected with undulant fever
in animal disease research projects,"
Hook told the House.
"Driving these cattle from college
paddocks across the farm lane to
these faculty-owned farms, I claimed,
caused the herds and flocks of the
college to become infected."
Refused To Answer
Hook said Shaw refused to answer
his question regarding the renting of
land "nor did he answer my inquiry
at the same time in regard to the re-
sults of the experiments of the Mich-

member of the Board of Agriculture
(controlling body of the .college), has
sold thousands of tons to Michigan
farms at three times its feed value as
sole agent for this feed in Michigan."
Hook charged the "hush fund" was
set up when Brody and Melville B.
McPherson, board member, "domin-
ated the State Board of Agriculture
and were all-powerful in Michigan
politics." He added his investiga-
tion disclosed an $8,600 theft of mili-
tary goods at the college "was de-

Track Mentor Will Lead
Squad In Title Defense
At Chicago Tomorrow
To Become Coach
At YaleUniversity
Charles B. Hoyt, for 16 years one
of the most beloved members of the
University of Michigan athletic staff,
resigned today as head track coach
to accept a similar position at Yale
The resignation does not be-
come effective until the close of the
college year in June and Coach Hoyt
will lead his team in its title defense
at Chicago today.
Simultaneously, announcement was
made by the Board in Control of
Physical Education of the appoint-
ment of Kenneth Doherty, for nine
years assistant to Hoyt, as head
Champion Builder
Hoyt, renowned throughout the
country as a builder of track chamn-
pions, is also famed as a trainer
and conditioner. His new association
at Yale also calls for him to act in
the capacity of head trainer for all
athletic squads.
It was understood that Hoyt had
been considering the move for some
time. He consulted with Yale authori-
ties last weekend in New Haven and
decided at that time to affect the
Mixed emotions were apparent in
all quarters as notice of Hoyt's resig-
nation was released. His innumerable
friends, colleagues and members of
his team expressed deep regret that
so valued a coach had been lost, but
all readily admitted that for Hoyt
it was a "step up the ladder."
Coach Hoyt's written statement, as
released in the announcement, said:
"It has been a real privilege to
serve Michigan. The decision to leave
Michigan has been a difficult one to
make. It is hard to leave the boys
and the fine people in the athletic
department. They have all been ex-
tremely loyal to me on and off the
athletic field. Mr. Yost and the ath-
letic beard, faculty, students and
alumni have been most generous in
their treatment of me.
Won 11 Titles
"Yale has honored me by inviting
me to join its athletic department
and the position has so many attrac-
tive features and possibilities that,
in fairness to my family and my own
future, I cannot refuse the invitation."
During his nine years as head
track coach, Hoyt set the finest record
in the history of the Western Confer-
ence. He won at least one title every
year indoors or outdoors in eight years
and a total of 11 championships out
of a possible 16 during the same
period. Only four dual meets were
lost during Hoyt's regime.
Born in Iowa, Hoyt is a graduate
of Greenfield, Ia., high school and
Grinnell College, Class of 1917. As
an undergraduate he was one of the
outstanding hurdlers and sprinters
in the nation, holder of the national
interscholastic record for the100
yard dash and the world mark for the
220 yard dash around a turn.
After graduation, Hoyt saw war
service in naval aviation before re-
turning to his alma mater as assist-
ant coach. He became coach and ath-
letic director in the Sioux City, Ia.,
high schools a year later. He came to
Michigan in 1923 as football trainer
and asistant to the late Steve Far-
rell, succeeding to the position of
head coach when Farrell retired in
Coached Many Stars
Mild-mannered, soft-spoken and
unassuming, Hoyt won wide popular-

ity personally as well as profession-
ally. His teams have been noted for
their intense loyalty to him, their
fine condition and their keen com-
petitive spirit.
Two notable phases of Hoyt's coach-
ing were the emphasis on the two
Conference meets as the climax of
the indoor and outdoor seasons to

Industrial And Craft Differences
Hinder Labor Parley, Elliott Says

The basic schism in craft and in-
dustrial unionism, which occasioned
the original AFL-CIO split in '35, will
continue to constitutb the major ob-
stacle in the present labor-peace
negotiations in W'ashington, Prof.
Margaret Elliott, of the economics
department, declared yesterday.
The two basic principles of labor
organization are not easy to recon-
cile, she stated, one being "horizon-
tal" and the other "vertical." In the
absence of a complicated series of
compromises and special agreements
there tends to be a conflict between
the two forms.

it will prove difficult to reconcile
autonomous unions in the same field,
she predicted.
In addition to these factors, Pro-
fessor Elliott stated, there are im-
portant differences in the political
viewpoints of the leaders of the two
organizations, as reflected in the
AFL's opposition to members of the
National Labor Relations Board and
aspects of the Wagner Act, its opposi-
tion to the CIO's practice of running
its own candidates for political office
and its charges of Communist influ-
ence in the CIO. These differences
must also be surmounted to insure a
lasting labor peace, she said.
The present attempt to reconcile the
