Warsaw Rumors
Danzig Invasion
LONDON, May 12.-() -Great
Britain today brought strategically
placed Turkey into her European se-
curity front; increasing its member-
ship to six nations.
The bitter enemies of the World
War, in statements made simul-
taneously in London and Ankara,
pledged to go to each other's aid "in
event of an act of aggression leading
to war in the Mediterranean area."
Prime mister Chamberlain, who
made the British Government's dec-
laration in the House. of Commons,
said that Great Britain and Turkey
"declare that, in the event of an act
of aggression leading to war in the
Mediterranean area, they will be pre-
pared to cooperate effectively and to
lend each other all aid and assistance
in their power."
"This declaration, like the pro-
posed agreement, is not directed
against any country, but is designed
to assure Britain and Turkey of mu-
tual aid and assistance should neces-
sity arise," he said.
Chamberlain added that "the two
governments recognize that it is also
necessary to insure establishment of
security in the Balkans and they are
consulting together with the object
of achieving this purpose as speedily
as possible."
Warsaw Hits Nazis

Warszawski, nationalist newspaper,
charged today that some 30,000 Ger-
mans had been added to the popula-

"an. invasion of armed squads" and
denounced any effort by Germany
to resort to a plebiscite there.
Poland meanwhile solemnly ob-

death of Joseph Pilsudski, who be-
came her president after the nation's
restoration following the World War.

PARIS, May 12.-(/P)-Premier Ed-

government won a strong Parliamen-
tary vote of confidence today in its
declared policy of resistance to any
effort to dominate Europe by force.
Daladier declared France would
continue building alliances and in-
creasing her armed forces as long as
her neighbors maintained "massive
Ruthven Lauds
City Policemen
Says Vice And Corruption
Will Never Exist Here,
President Ruthven last night said
that Ann Arbor would never suffer
from vice and corruption like that of
Champaign, Illinois as long as the
city maintained a responsible and
efficient police force.
"We don't want anything in this

town like that which was discovered
near the University of Illinois last
spring," Dr. Ruthven declared at a
banquet in the Union honoring the
Ann Arbor police department.
In a jesting mood, he admitted that
pick-pocketing was discovered at the
May Festival for the first time this
year, but gave assurance that it would
soon disappear.
"The vandals worked on a couple of
University professors and gleaned 49
cents from one and 89 cents from
the other. I don't think they' will be
Malcolm W. Bingay, of the Detroit

To Elimnation
Of Profits Tax!
P'resident Stipulates Other
Guards Against Evasion
Must Be Undertaken
White House conference, involving a
possible showdown on whether 'tax
revision should be undertaken at this
session of Congress and the nature
of the changes to be made, was called
today for Monday afternoon.
President Roosevelt, after saying
he was willing to repeal the remnants
of the undistributed profits tax if
other safeguards against legal tax
evasion. are enacted simultaneously,
summoned both Treasury and Con-
gressional tax authorities to the meet-
Many who have followed the con-
fused tax situation expressed the
opinion that the conference would
find the Congressional group urging
the elimination from the tax sched-
ules of' certain levies which have
been called a handicap to business
and recovery.
The President's view, expressed to-
day, is that if such taxes are repealed,
the resulting loss of revenue must be
offset by new taxes. Those who have
been advocating repeal, he told a
press conference, have failed to point
out how the government would raise
the revenue thus lost.

President Ruthven
Informs Reeipients'
Ninety-seven Michigan high school
seniors today were rewarded for out-
standing scholastic records with
University alumni undergraduate
scholarships for the 1939-1940 school
Announcement of the winners was
made by Dr. Clarence S. Yoakum,
vice-president of the University.

formed the recipients of the awards

organized University of Michigan
club. The total of 97 is 22 more
than were distributed in 1938.
The scholarships are self-renewing
if the student maintains a satisfac-
tory scholastic average in the Univer-
sity. At the present time there are
190 University students who hold the
scholarships, which cover tuition for
a year.
Selection of scholarship students
is made by Dr. Yoakum from the
nomination of local alumni and al-
umnae clubs. They are chosen on the
basis of scholastic attainments, char-
acter, and financial need.

Miss Anderson Receives
Huge Ovation At Festival



Usually staid May-Festival-goers
forgot their dignity last night, and
called Marian Anderson back 18 times
for curtain calls. Applauding loud
and long, the 5,500 who jammed Hill
Auditorium to hear the Negro con-
tralto, subsided only when Miss An-
derson explained that she "would
love to do some spirituals, but they
wouldn't fit in with the program."
Thd' program was all-Brahms.
Visiblyaffected by her reception,
Miss Anderson said: "I thank you all
very, very much," and promised to
sing the spirituals when she came
to Ann Arbor again.
Miss Anderson's program last night
consisted of "Rhapsodie for Alto So-
lo," in which she was accompanied by
the Men's Chorus of the Choral Union,
"Dein blaues Auge," "Imemr leiser7
wird m e i n Schlummer," "D e r
Schmied," and "Von ewiger Liebe."
