Both Factions Plan
To Hold Convention
DETROIT, Jan. 20 -(R)- Anti-
Martin majority members of the
United Automobile Workers' Execu-
tive Board, retaliating after their sus-
pension by President Homer Martin,
voted unanimously tonight to im-
peach the president of the big CIO
union.
The Board preferred eight charges
against Martin, who locked the inter-
national union's headquarters here
this morning, removed records to his
hotel and announced he had suspend-
ed 5 members of the board who have
opposed him.
Those 15 and two other board mem-
bers not disciplined by Martin joined
in the unanimous .vote to bring the
union president to trial with a view
to removing him from office.
Charge Conspiracy
The principal charges the board
lodged against the former clergyman
who heads the big auto union were
that he had "conspired" with high
figures in the automotive industry to
"disrupt" the union.
Martin, in announcing suspension
of his opponents, set up his own ex-
ecutive board; the anti-Martin board
which had curtailed his powers dur-
ing the past ten days fought back.
Each group claimed to be the con-
stituted authority in the union and
planned rival conventions to elect
officers.
Compicity With Ford ?
One indictment by the board
against Martin said he had conspired
with representatives of the Ford
Motor Co"to create a secession move-
ment within the union with the view
to destroyin the union and building
u al org i ation anong the auto
workers."
Another accused the UAW presi-
dent of "conspiring with known and
notorious enemies of the UAW and
the CIO and the labor movementin
general with the view of its affect-
ing the 'membership of the United
Automobile Workers, disrupting the'
union and creating an organization
of auto workers functioning in opposi-
tion to the UAW and dominated by
the automobile industrialists."

HENDAYE, France (At the Span-

Insurgents announced in quick suc-
cession tonight the capture of Igual-
ada and Vendrell, two towns of high
military importance to the Barcelona
defense lines in eastern Spain.
Igualada was one of four main keys
to the government defense and Ven-
dre~l a government outpost and con-
trol point for coastal highway traf-
fic leading to Villanueva and( Villa
Franca.
Thefall of Vendrell, 32 miles south-
west of Barcelona near the Mediter-
ranean coast, was reported shortly
after the Insurgents announced an-,
other force had taken Igualada, little
industrial center of 10,000.
Igualada is 28 miles northwest of
Barcelona and the first of four main
keys to the Government's inystery.
line' of defenses. Its capture cuts the
Government's main north and south
line of communication, which ran
just behind the full length of Govern-
ment fortifications.
Other main defense points are
Manresa, northwest of the Capital;
Villanueva, on the Mediterranean
coast, and Villa Franca, between Vil-
lanueva and Igualada.
Insurgent military headquarters
said the fall of Igualada placed Gov-
ernment forces at Villa Franca and
Vendrell in desperate positions.
Villa Franca is a main communica-
tion center for the southern sector of
the Government defense line while
Vendrell is a Government advance
post for -the line.
Insurgent reports received at Leri-
da, behind the Insurgent line, said
another force of Generalissimo Fran-
cisco Franco's troops captured the
village of La Llacuna, 15 miles duej
south of Igualada, and pushed to
within 26 miles of Barcelona.

World Organization

BERLIN, Jan. 20.-(P)-Adolf Hit-
ler dropped his orthodox financial pi-
lot, Hialmar Horace Greeley Schacht,
from the presidency of the Reichs-:
bank today and gave the post to Ec-
onomics Minister Walther Funk to
bring the powerful financial institu-
tion under full Nazi control.
The startling dismissal was seen in
informed quarters as a fordrunner of
five broad developments in German
economy:
1! Acceleration of credit i"flation to
finance Nazi rearmament and gigan-
tic building programs under 48-year-]
old Funk, a long-time Nazi. Schacht,
who is 61, opposed this course. ]
2. Crossing off the United States
as a possible source of raw materials
for Germany.
No Bearing On Trade
(In Washington, Departznent of
Commerce experts said the change
from Schaht ,to Funk had no real]
bearing on German-American trade
and they predicted that Germany
would continue to buy certain neces-
sities because the Balkans could not
supply them. One high official never-
theless saw Funk's appointment as
a slap. at the United States. Of-
ficals who recently made a survey of
the German situation said Funk was
noted for his animosity toward the]
United States, in contrast to Schacht's
friendliness).
3. Intensification of Germany's ec-1
onomic drive through the Balkans
toward the Near East and in South
America.y
Debt Collection Difficult
4. Increased difficulties for Ameri-
can and other holders of German
bonds in salvaging some of the money
leiit 'eriany before the Nazis came
to power Jan. 30, 1933.]
5. An. end for the t'ime being, at
least, to hopes of several hundred
thousand Jews that they would be
able to emigrate with aid of the In-
tergovernmental Refugee Committee.
Negotiations which George Rublee
American executive director of the
committee, had been conducting with
Schacht broke down quickly after the
Reichsbank President's dismissal
when official notification was made
that the conversations would not be
continued.
Families Prey -
Of Insecurity,
Haber Claims
Economic insecurity, bringing with
it fear, unemployment and poverty is
pounding at the foundations of the1
American family and is periling the
liberties and institutions of democ-
racy, Prof. William Haber of the ec-
onomics department declared in an
address delivered last night before
the Great I,,akes Regional Conference
of the Family Welfare Association of
America in Detroit.
Unemployment is the most serious
problem today, Professor Haber as-
serted, and when the American people
have found a solution to that question
they will have established the best
possible defense for protecting our
"Bill of Rights." 4
"But the solution which we must
find for unemployment will have to
be more constructive than the mere
building of armaments," he warned.
"The basis of economic security in
the present day can be found only in
the continuous functioning of the ec-
onomic system," Professor Haber con-
tinued. "This situation can func-
tion only so long as there are jobs.
When unemployment comes the fam-
ily 'takes it on the chin.' Whether the
individual suffers or not, the family
always does."

He praised the Social Security act
as a "consfructive step that has been
taken to protect the men, women, and

Varsity Quintet
To Meet Iowa

Cellar Awaits Wolverines
If They Lose; Stephens
Paces Hawkeye's Attack
"Blazing Ben" Stephens, the Big
Ten's number one scoring threat,
leads his resurgent Iowa teammates
against a down-trodden Michigan
quintet tonight at Iowa City in a"
battle which may be the turning point
in the Conference race for either
team.
The Hawkeyes, victors over Pur-,
due and Chicago last weekend, are
eager to convince the home-town fans
that their impressive performance
was no fluke by winning tonight and
thereby moving a notch higher in
the+ title chase.
Reports from the tell corn country
indicate that the local optimism is
not as high as thestalks however.
That's because they know what has
happened to the Wolverines -and'
that they are liable to bounce back
with a vengeance one of these nights.
And as they put it, "it might be to-
night."
Certainly the stage is set. Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan's boys scored six
straight victories in their pre-season,
warfare and were riding the crest of
the wave but then the wave broke.
The injury jinx hit the team, at the
same time, the Wolverine sharpshoot-
ers lost their touch and as a result
the squad has lost four out of the
last five cotnests.
So tonight it's either win or fall

In Contest At Coliseum
By NEWELL McCABE
Once again the Wolverine hockey
sextet will have a chance to show the,
local fans, on home ice, that they can
match the Golden Gophers of Minne-
sota shot for shot and blow for blow'
when they tangle with John Mariucci
and the other Minnesota stars tonight
in the second of their two game series.
Last Thursday night a Gopher
tidal wave hit Coach Eddie Lowrey's
squad and did not recede until six
goals had been pushed past "Spike"
James, who turned in a brilliant per-
formance, but received no support
from the Michigan defense men.
Gopher Defense Powerful
Although this year's Minnesota's
hockey team is not as powerful as the
previous squads they have sent to the
Coliseum, it is the Gopher defensive
play which kept the Wolverines score-
less in their first Big Ten battle with
Minnesota.
In the course of the whole game
Michigan's forward wall was able to
send only a few powerful shots into
Big Marty Falk who guarded the visit-
ors' net. Should the formerly high
scoring combination of Cooke, Doran,
and Chadwick get through Mariucci
and Cramp in the back posts they
would .have little difficulty in slip-
ping the puck through Falk.
Over-anxiousness Hurts
Several times in Thursday's game
Cooke had open shots at Falk but
overanxiousness caused them to be
mere flukes which could be turned
away by any average goalie. On the
other hand "Spike" James made some
saves which will be hard to match by

Three Pool Marks
Fall InOnslaught
By MEL FINEBERUx
Three touches in three different
events spelled the difference be-
tween victory, defeat and a tie last
night at the Intramural Building pool
where Ohio State University and
Michigan fought their way through
nine hectic events to a 42-42 dead-
lock, and broke three pool records
and three Big Ten marks in the pro-
cess.
The climax to the stirring finishes
came in the 400-yard free-style re-
lay. With Michigan needing a, vic-
tory to tie, and with the Buckeyes
mustering comparatively fresh men,
Bud Benjamin, '39, Daily sports
editor, won himself a place in the
top-rank of crystal ball artists
yesterday.
Speaking from Morris Hall on
the "Michigan F;anFare" ro--
gram over WMBC before last
night's swimming meet, Benjamin
prognosticated: "The most likely
outcome is a tie."
And he's got the script to prove
the Wolverine quartet had to better
the Big Ten mark of 3:35.6 to nose
out the invaders by a isp of hair.
The final event wag in doubt all
the way. Bill Beebe, led off for the
Wolverines and was down about four
feet to Johnny Hartline. But then
sensational Charley Barker, after
having won the 50-yard free-style
and taking second in the back strok,
was even at the half-waym.a
handed Dave Holmes a three-quar-
tern of a length lead.
By the time Holmes hit the first
turn he had increased the Wolverine
lead to a length over the Buckeye
captain, Bob Johnson. The lead was
slowly whittled down by the Ohio
leader but Dave was still ahead by
two feet at the end of 300-yards.
Ed Hutchens, with a tremendous
first lap, was a length in front of
Billy Quayle but no one expected him
to withstand the tremendous last 50-
yard kick of the Buckeye ace. Quayle
was even at the three-quarter mark
and looked like the end of Wolverine
hopes,
But Hutchens, with a powerful
drive, held off Quayle for the last
lap in a photo finish. The meet

IScarlett; Selected
By Detroit Students,
Is Searching Rhett
The University of Detroit's student
newspaper, Vasity News, announced
last week that a committee to pick a
student cast for "Gone With The
Wind" had chosen Nancy Scallen,
freshman co-ed and daughter of one
of Detroit's judges, for the role of
Scarlett O'Hara. The committee ran
into difficulties Incasting the role of
Rhett Butler, however, and admitted
themselves "chagrined and at a com-
plete loss to discover suitable talent"
at the University, although more than
3,000 men- are enrolled there.
SMichigan extended its helping hand
yesterday when another committee,
formed by students interested in pro-
moting better relations between the
two schools and getting a better grade
of class B movies, announced they
would choose a Rhett Butler from
I Michigan. The committee created by
I the Varsity News to help Hollywood
out of all casting difficulties whether
they want it or not is apparently un-
daunted by the fact that both roles
i have been filled and the casting near-
ly completed.

In fact enthusiasm ran high, in-
deed, when a photograph of U of D's
Nancy Scallen, now better known as
"Scarlett O'Scallen," arrived. Said
Max Hodge, editor of the Gargoyle,
as he looked at the pretty co-ed's
picture, "I'd rather be Rhett than
president."

Varsity Band Will Introduce
New Michigan March Tomorrow

"Michigan On Parade," a new
Michigan march to be presented for
the first time at the Varsity Band
concert at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in Hill
Auditorium, was written by Karl L.
King, president of the American As-
socation of Bandmasters.
King has composed a great major-I
ity of the marches used by Big Ten
schools, and is considered one of the
most proficient baritone horn artists
in the country. He wrote "Michigan
On Parade" in 24 hours, without a
stop, on his 21st birthday.
The inclusions of his march on the
program is p-articularly significant
in that the principal soloist of the
afternoon will be Donald 1.", Marrs,
Grad., also a baritone horn artist.
William D. Revelli, director of the
band, and a close friend of King, be-
lieves that Marrs is unequalled among
young musicians today.
"Michigan On Parade" has never
been played before an audience, andj
the presentation tomorrow will serve!
