Europe Quiet;

Hitler Assures Mussolini
Of Support Germans,

(By Associated Press)
LONDON, March 25.--A lull passed
over the European stage today as the
spotlight focused upon Rome whereI
Benito Mussolini is expected tomor-
row morning to introduce the next;
act in Europe's map-making drama
with fresh demands on France's
colonial empire.
Encouraged by a telegram from his
axis partner in Berlin which declared
that the German people would sup-
port Italy "against attempts to re-
strict the justified will for the destiny
of our two peoples" and by vague
rumors that Madrid would be occu-
pied in time for him to announce its
fall, Ui Duce will be able to ask for
a final showdown.
Chamberlain Wavering
Chamberlain, .until now wavering
between the "democratic" and fascist
protagonists, temporarily , withheld
negotiations today to weld the split'
"Stop Hitler" bloc until after Mus-
solini has spoken.
Meanwhile, Germany wasaconsoli-
dating her hold over new additions
and was rumored to have begun troop
movements in East Prussia and along
the Polish Corridor's western fron-
tier to counteract what they called
confirmed reports that "more than
1,000" Poles were taking position in"
the Polishseaport city of Gdynia on
Danzig's western fronier.
Danzig Worders
Danzig citizens, windering "when
does our turn come" in Adolf Hit-
ler's "Drang nach Osten," showed
little excitement over the military re-
ports. They were more concerned,
however, with Poland's order with-'
drawing surplus railway equipment
from Danzigand the Corridor which
they feared would hamper shipping]
A few weels ago Danzig's Nazis were
resigned to waiting a long time. But
the tempestuous events which brought1
Bohemia and Moravia and thens
Memel into Germany's realm and put
Slovakia under Nazi protection have
caused some to reconsider.
Japan May Sign Pact'
TOKYO, March 26. Sunday)-(P)
-An authoritative source reported
today the possibility of a German-c
Japanese defensive pact againstt
Soviet Russia.,
He said the government had re-
fused to join' an unconditional mili-1
tary alliance with Germany and Italy
but might enter an agreement byl
which Japan would support the Nazis
if Russia "attacks Germany withoutt
provocation." '
His comment followed the closing
sessions yesterday of the 74th Diet
in which minority groups, which have
106 out of 466 seats in the parliament,
presented a resolution advocating
conversion of the anti-comintern pact
into a military alliance.
The resolution, which was handed
to the Premier, Baron Kiichiro Hir-
anuma, declared "a tri-partite mili-
tary alliance between Japan, Ger-
many and Italy should be concluded
against Britain and France, who

are obstructing accomplishment of
imperial aims in the present sacred
war (in China)."
Circles close to the government
yesterday reported that Germany was
exerting powerful pressure to bring
Japan into a military alliance.

Occupational Guidance

"Success in the job-hunt of today
and tomorrow will go to the socially
adjusted and versatile student," Dr.
A. H. Edgerton, Director of Vocational
Guidance at the University of Wis-
consin, declared yesterday at the clos-
ing session of the University's Guid-
ance and Occupational Information
Warning that "the day of the nar-
row specialist is passing," he pointed
out that mere skill and knowledge no
longer suffice. Swiftly changing tech-
nological and social conditions which
abolish and create jobs overnight de-
mand ability to adopt obsolete tech-
niques to new problems.
Traditional education methods are
not fitting students for this chang-
ing world, Dr. Edgerton charged. Pro-
fessional schools today, he said, are

solete by 20 years in the field of law,

Spring Concert
To Mark Band's
165 Musicians To Appear
In Free Presentation
To Be Given On April 4
Commemorating its 80th anniver-
sary, the University Band, under
the direction of Prof. William D.
Revelli, will present its annual Spring
Concert at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, April
4 in Hill Auditorium.
The concert will be free, and all
University students and faculty are
invited, Gilbert Phares, '39, business
manager of the band said yesterday.
Both the concert and regimental
bands in the University willbe com-
bined to celebrate the special occa-
sion. As a result, 165 musicians, one
of the largest ensembles in the na-
tion, will appear on the stage during
parts of -the program.
The anniversary program will feat-
ure Betty Correll, trombone solo-
ist from Elkhart, Ind. Widely known
throughout the Middle West as an
outstanding artist, Miss Correll is the
sister of Dick Correll, '40M.
Presentation of a loving cup to the
winners of the Kappa Psi, honorary
musical fraternity, solo and ensemble
contest will also mark the program.
The winning contestants will be feat-
ured in special numbers. -The Band
will play modern music incorporating
currently popular rhythms and melo-
dies along with classical works by
Tschaikowsky, Wagner and Bach.
Marches by Sousa, Goldman and
King will round out the program.
To mark the occasion, the Band is
planning an elaborate silver anni-
versary program portfolio which will
contain pictures of the Band and lists
of the organization's activities and

Bruce M. Beyer, '41, and Mildred

tional stability, he declared, must be
Taking engineers as an example,
Dr. Edgerton stressed the need for es-
thetic development, social stability
and business administration as more
vital today than a knowledge of
"stresses and strains."
The importance of being a "like-
able person," schooled in human na-
ture, was emphasized by R. A. Brew-
er, Account Executive for MacMan-
us, John an Adams, as the prime
requisites for success in advertising.
One of the most lucrative of all
fields, advertising has produced more
nervous breakdowns and suicides than
any other, he said.
"Get a job in the advertising de-
partment of some manufacturing con-
cern if you want to break into adver-
tising," Mr. Brewer advised students.
The all-around knowledge gained will
furnish needed background for the
specialized work of a large agency,
he said.
Emphasizing t h e "tremendous
amount of politics in business," he
warned that students "must be able
diplomats" to succeed in advertising.
Situations constantly arise which de-
mand adoption to all sorts of individ-
uals and personalities.
Other qualities stressed by Mr.
Brewer as prerequisite to success in
advertising were creative imagination,
a solid but flexible ground-work in
English and appreciation of art.

Opposes 'Party Lines

The hotly contested Regency race
took another turn yesterday when
Prof.-Emeritus Edwin C. Goddard, a
member of the law faculty for over
20 years, issued a statement recom-
mending that voters of the state sup-
port Dr. Dean W. Myers, former fac-

date for the Board.
"I am deeply interestedin the April
3 election, especially in the case of
Dr. Dean W. Myers as a candidate
for Regent," Professor Goddard de-
clared. "For years he lived next door
to me and I have known him intimate-
ly for "a long time.
"Dr. Myers' name appears in the
Democratic column, but that should
not be important for or against him.
In this election it is very unfortun-
ate that any votes should be in-
fluenced by the party column. The
personality and fitness of the candi-
date are the only important consid-
eration for this office at this time
and no candidate I have ever been
permitted to vote for as Regent
stands higher than Dean Myers in
these respects. He is a man of fine
character and of outstanding ability

meeting of the all-campus peace
committee to be held at 8 p.m. to-
morrow in the Union to make plans
for the annual peace strike April 20.'
At the meeting, which will be open

the question of speakers discussed. A
program has been drawn up tQ serve
as a basis of discussion for Mohday's
meeting in a meeting of the continu-

The program of the committee con-
demns fascist aggression as the main
threat to world order today and calls
upon the students of the University
to support a positive peace policy.
Praising the United States' 25 per
cent tariff on German-made goods
as a step in the direction of imposing
economic measures against aggres-
sors, it also calls for an excavation of

this policy.

Michigan the title they had been fav-.
