MONTREAL, Que., May 18.-(--
For ten crowded hours King George
and Queen Elizabeth were cheered
and feted today by Canada's greatest
metropolis.
Determined to outdoQuebec's color-
ful welcome of yesterday, Montreal
massed 1,000,000 cheering and flag-
waving people to greet the smiling
royal pair.
Ticker tape floating through the
air gave a New York touch to their
Canadian tour as the parade of royal
cars passed the Place d'Armes on
their 23-mile route through the city.

In spite of the poor showing Tues-
lay in the current criticism poll spon-
sored by the Student Senate, the re-
turns for Wednesday and yesterday
Indicated a definite upswing in stu-
dent interest. Martin Dworkis, '40.
vice-president of the Senate said
yesterday.
At a meeting today of members of
the education committee. it is planned
to forward copies of questions already
decided upon to the heads of the
various departments and obtain per-
mission from them to circulate these
lists in the classroom. Approval of
the poll has already been obtained
from the authorities of the literary
college, Dworkis stated.
However, the ballot boxes on cam-
pus, in Angell Hall lobby, the Main
Library, Romance Languages Build-
ing, Haven Hall and University Hall,
will be open today, and all students
of the literary college are urged to
place their written criticisms in them.
Criticisms must be serious to be
considered and this noll must not be
taken as an opportunity to "sling
mud" at any particular members of
the faculty, Dworkis warned. The
purpose of the poll is to determine the
student opinion on, such questions as
Are your courses being taught effi-
ciently? Do you favor the manner
and frequency with which examina=
tiens are administered? And do you
have any suggestions for making the
University curriculum more effective;
should it be more individualized?

150 Jews Injured In Palestine Riots;
HillelHead Says British Plan WillFail

By HARRY M. KELSEY p
Trial of County Clerk Emmett M.
Gibb, asked to show cause why he g
should remain in office after being w;
accused of appropriating public wel- a
fare funds for his own use, will con- s
inue today before a special tribunal ii
composed of Circuit Judge George st
W. Sample and Circuit Court Com- st
nissioners Lee N. Brown of Ypsilanti it
and Albert W. Hooper of Ann Arbor. h
Two witnesses were called by
Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp and de-
fending lawyer John W. Conlin dur- t
ing yesterday's hearing. Mrs. Luella b
Smith, deputy county clerk, testified 5
as to the original resolution creating h
the county welfare fund and, when
asked by Rapp if she was in charge ofd
the records of that fund as she was
of other county records, said sheV
has "had nothing to do about it."
Queried as to whether he kept t
records of all money received and dis- t
bursed in the county clerk's office, i
J. Martin Rempp, accountant in the E
clerk's office, the second witness,
answered in the affirmative, with
"one exception: the local emergency r
relief fund." Later, when questioned
by Rapp on certain billings involved
in the fund, he stated, "That was
handled by Mr. Gibb."
Rempp testified thaf the only ac-
count he had of the welfare fund was
irj the form of vouchers covering
amounts given him by Gibb to be
turned over to the county treasurer
He offered for evidence the account
book in which he kept these records.
Rapp produced three checks
amounting to $11,687.79 which had
been made payable to Gibb by the city
of Ypsilanti in payment of its share
of the welfare fund for three separate
months. These checks, Rapp deduct-,
ed from endorsements,.had been de-
posited, by Gibb in an Ann Arbor1
bank, from which drafts - had been
made for the same payable to a
Detroit bank.
The hearing will reconvene at 9:30
a.m. today in the court room of the
County Courthouse.

Six meet records hang precariously
i the brink of erasure as Michigan's
efending track champions prepare
make Coach Charley Hoyt a going-
way present of his sixth Western
'onference title in nine years of
aching at the 39th annual Big Ten
feet at Ferry Field today and to-
orrow.
The preliminaries in six track and
ur field events will start at 3 p.m.
day with the finals in all events
heduled to begin at 1:45 p.m. to-
orrow. General admission for each
ay will be $1.10 while for students
resenting identification cards it will
e 40 cents.
Meet Is 'Swan Song'
The meet will be the swan song of
iree great Michigan track figures-
[oyt, Capt. Bill Watson and Elmer
redeon. Hoyt; after nine years of
oaching in Ann Arbor, will assume
is duties as head coach at Yale after
is meet; Watson will leave colle-
late track competition to go to work
s general secretary for Joe Louis
nd Gedeon will concentrate on his
rofessional baseball future.
All three will go out in a blaze of
lory. Michigan is conceded an over-
helming team victory; and possibly
new record team scoring. Watson
hould have little trouble in defend-
ag his titles in the broad jump, the
hot put and the discus, and Gedeon
hould romp home in the only event
n which he'll, compete, the high
urdles.
Watson Leads Assault
Watson will lead the assault on

As Nine Loses
To Minnesota
Smick's Wildness, Poor
Baserunning Combine
To Defeat Team, 5-4
By NORM MnjLER
Michigan's Big T e n pennant
chances were rudely knocked into the
realms of the long-shot possibilities
yesterday afternoon, as the Wolverine
baseball team coupled some more
faulty fielding and baserunning to
Pitcher Danny Smick's wildness in
handing Minnesota 5-4 victory.
The defeat catapulted the Varsity
into a fourth-place tie with North-
western and left the Fishermen with
only a slim chance of overtaking the
league-leading Purdue and Iowa
nines.
Smick got off on the wrong foot
when he walked Frank Knox and
George Boerner, the first two Gophers
to face him. Phil Grossman then
grounded to first-baseman Elmer
Gedeon, who tossed to Smick cover-
ing first. Grossman beat the play
for a hit, but the Michigan twirler
let the ball get away from him and

Knox scored from tlhird on the error.
Johnny Kundla bunted safely down
the third-base line, filling the bases.
and wherf Capt. Ed Roy flied deep to
Charlie Pink a moment later, Boerner
romped home with the second Gopher
run.
The Wolverines immediately turned
on a bunting attack in their half of
of the first and before the inning was
over, had tied" the score. Pink nudged
a bunt down the third-base line for a
hit, Mike Sofiak caught the Minne-
sota battery flat-footed with another
tap a few feet in front of the plate,
and Walt Peckinpaugh advanced both

Dennonstrations By Jews
Throughout Holy Land
Protest 'White Paper'
JERUSALEM, May 18.-OP)-More
than 100 casualties were suffered to-
night in terrific battles in the streets
of Jerusalem between police and Jew-
ish youths demonstrating against
Britain's new policy of an indepen-
dent Arab-controlled Palestine.
At least 100 Jewish youths, most of
them between the ages of 10 and 16,
were wounded.
Police suffered several casualties,
and at least two of them were in-
jured severely by revolver shots,
After the Jews had made an or-
derly demonstration march through
the central streets of the city, some
5,000 Jewish youths assembled in the
early afternoon in front of the district
commissioner's office to carry on
their protest against Britain's policy.
Booing police and thi'owing stones,
they drew a baton charge by police.
The crowd recoiled somewhat, then
pressed forward hurling stones.
The police were forced to give way
in order to allow time' to receive re-

per hand and broke the resistance.
By 9:30 Pm. more than 100 Jewish
injured had been counted. Many of
the injuries were serious.
Police fired shots over the heads of
the rioters during the battle in an
effort to disperse them,
In similar demonstrations at the
all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv at least 40
persons received first aid hospital
treatment in a number of clashes be-
tween Jewish youths and police. "
In the Jerusalem disorders an of-
ficial of the Czecho-Slovak consulate
was wounded seriously when he was
attacked and stoned by a mob as he
drove in his automobile near the dis-
trict commissioner's office.
British police reported two of their
number were wounded by shots fired
from revolvers in the fighting there.
Many shop windows were broken
by the flying stones..
The fighting climaxed a day which
witnessed 175,000 Jews marching,
singing, shouting and carrying pla-
cards protesting the plan to put Pales-
tine under Arab control and end the
Jewish dream of a "national home"
in the Holy Land.
Many of them signed mobilization

Rabinowitz Claims English
Hopes For Anti-Hitler
Front Seriously Hurt
By LAURENCE MASCOTT
"The British White Paper an-
nounced Wedngsday is but another
link in the policy of appeasement. It
will fail miserably, both in its at-
tempt to solve Palestine's problem by
creating a Palestinian ghetto and in
its attempt to strengthen the anti-
Hitler f..ont."
That is the prediction given in an
interview last night by Dr. Isaac Rab-
irowitz, director of the local Hillel
Foundation.
"How can the British government
expect Poland to believe the present
promises England has made to it and
how can Chamberlain expect Russia
to have enough faith in English prom-
ises to join the anti-aggression bloc,
if the English so ruthlessly break
the promises, sanctified by the Bal-
four declaration of 1917 and the
League of Nations Mandate, that she
has made to the Jews?" he asked.
The first line of resistance will be
in Parliament, he said. Undoubtedly
