versity physicians will first examine
all applicants, and then Army flight
surgeons will pass final judgment.
Candidates will be required to meet
physical standards set by the military
'flying service, CAA officials said.
The experimental training program,
will cost $100,000 according to esti-
mates, and will be financed by the
National Youth Administration, head-
ed by Audrey Williams. Other schools
which were selected are: Purdue,
Alabama, Minnesota, Washington,.
Massachusetts Institute of Technol-
ogy, Texas A & M, Georgia Tech,
New York University, North Caiolina,K
Kansas, San Jose, and Pomona. These
institutions were chosen on the basis
of previous aviation training work.
There are less than 5,000 military
fliers in the country today, CAA offi-
cials pointed out, and a total of 20,000
in all branches of aviation. Thus one
year's operation of the plan would
double the number of competent pilots
in the U.S., they explained.
President Roosevelt also intimated
that a similar training program for
aviation mechanics would be an-
nounced in the near future. Many
new technicians will be chosen from
the 160,000 students enrolled at pres-
ent under the NYA, and the program
is also expected to apply to the many
students already enrolled in private
aviation ground schools.
Extensive expansion in all branches
of aeronautical instruction will be
necessary, Edwin A. Link, Jr., presi-
dent of the company that has sup-
plied the army and navy training de-t
vices, declared when informed of thet

Hollywood Stars Denounce Nazis
In Petition For German Embargo

Diplomatic relations between West
Virginia University and National
Socialist Germany remained broken
today, following an exchange of de-
famatory editorials and cablegrams
between the two parties.
The newspaper, Das Schwarze
Korps, official organ of the Nazi Elite
Guards, fired another editorial-page
volley at the West Virginia students
last week in which the collegians
were called "dripping-nosed offshoots
of war-profiteering Babbitts" who
endanger international'relations.
The attack was based on a cable-
gram sent by the editors of the Daily
Athenaeum, college newspaper, read-
ing: "Students of West Virginia Uni-
versity hereby sever diplomatic rela-
tions with Germany." This was in
answer to the German publication's
criticism of their recent "every man
a Hitler" party which was reported
in a nationally-circulated picture
Condemning the party, in which
young men dressed in imitation of
Hitler, as an insult to the German
Fuehrer, Das Schwarze Korps re-
ferred to the West Virginia affair as
a "trick of American guttersnipes."
The second German barrage, fol-
lowing receipt of the cablegram
caused the West Virginia editors to
comment editorially: "Little things
that assume humorous aspects to
those who live in a democratic coun-
try have frightening imports to those'
who live under the axe of dictator-

The other side of glamorous Holly-
wood was revealed recently in a "Dec-
laration of Democratic Independence
to the President and the Congress of
the United States of America" that
was drawn up and signed by 57 movie
stars and officials of outstanding pic-
ture companies.
The Hollywood celebrities petition-'
ea the President and Congress, to sev-
er all economic relations with Ger -
many until such a time as Germany
is willing to re-enter the family of
nations in accordance with humane
principles of international law.
In no uncertain terms these not-
ables denounce Hitler and his hench-
men of being tryouts who challenge
democracy's heritage and are aiming
to bring the world under absolute des-
Joan Crawford, Paul Muni and
Edward G. Robinson were among1
those who accused the leaders of
Nazi Germany of destroying the
rights of man, wantonly persecuting
defenseless minorities; imprisoning
ministers of all religions, and victi-
mizing their citizens and throwing
them on the mercy of the world, braz-
enly proclaiming that this victimiza-,
tion has only begun.
They continue to say that Germany
defies international law, violates
treaties i and repudiates covenants of
peace. such a country as Germany
whose character is marked in every
act by tryanny is unfit to be thb'
friend of a free nation, the petition
asserts. In view of these facts the
United States should through its ex-
ecutive orders and legislative mea-

Arbor, wept to the courthouse yester-
day morning to obtain a marriage
license application, and was drafted
by Deputy Sheriff Erwin Klager for
jury duty, after attorneys in a suit
had exhausted the panel of 30 jurors.
Mr. Diuble submitted, "served his
time" and obtained his license as
soon as the noon recess was declared.
