Sweden Urges
Allies To Send
Finns Full Aid
Or None At All
Von Ribbentrop Speeds
To Rome As Britain
Releases Italian Ships
Fighting Continues
On Viipuri Front
With Sweden reporbed warning
the Allies they must send a large
Allied force to aid Finland or none
at all, Russian-Finnish peace talks
last night reached the stage of major
power politics.
Stockholm sources expressed the
opinion this political game involved
an Allied desire to keep Russia busy
in Finland lest peace there enable
her to assist Germany. A deci-v
in the talks, now being continued
through direct negotiations between
Moscow and Helsinki, may be reach-
ed by Monday or Tuesday at the
latest.
Forestall Passage
Sweden was said to have told the
Allies it would attempt to forestall
passage of any Allied force "inade-
quate" to help the Finns because
only a large force could help defend
Sweden if Russia or Germany in-
vaded that neutral country when
Allied troops start through. A full
army corps, it was added, would be
"gratefully welcomed" by the Swedes.
Comment at the Swedish Foreign.
Office on the reported notice to the
Allies was that the question of war
or peace in Finland is "a Finnish
question.".
' While Germany's Foreign Minis-
ter, Joachim Von Ribbentrop, rode
toward Italy on a special train for
week-end conferences with Premier
Mussolini, Great Britain took some
of the thunder out of his visit by
releasing 13 Italian vessels and their
cargoes of German coal. The shis
were seized in the past week in Bri-
tain's blockade of German exports.
In return for the release of the ships,
Italy will send no more vessels to
the Low Countries to load German
coal.
Seeking Italians' Support
It had been said Von Ribbentrop
would use the coal' incident as an
argument in seeking Italian support
to stop Allied aid to Finland while
Adolf Hitler attempted to make peace
in the north.
There was curiosity in Berlin and
other European capitals over the an-
nouncement that Hitler would speak
to the Reich today (Sunday, 6 a.m.
E. S. T.) irl an unusual Memorial Day
address. It was regarded as signifi-
cant that Hitler himself would speak
insteadof the customary military or
naval leader.
In actual warfare, fighting con-
tinued around Viipuri, with Finland
admitting that the Red Army had,
gained a "restricted foothold" on
the northwest shore of Viipuri Bay.
That move might allow the Red Ar-
my to encircle the ancient port and
outflank the western end of the Man-
nerheim Line.
On the Western Front, the French
reported several German patrols had
been repulsed.

Wolverines Capture Six
Of Nine First Places;
O.S.U. Takes Second
He dt, G ha reet
Set New Records
By DON WIRTCHAFTER
(Special To The Daily)
COLUMBUS, O., March 9.-Michi-
gan still rules supreme over Western
Conference swimming, for the in-
vincible Wolverines rolled up 71 points
here in the beautiful Ohio Natatori-
um tonight to capture their eleventh
title in the past 15 years.
As customary, it was a two team
meet, with Michigan winning six out
of nine events to finish 24 points
ahead of second-place Ohio. The
rest of the field ended far below, with
Northwestern scoring 17, Iowa 13,
Michigan will probably have to
do without Jim Welsh in the Na-
tional Intercollegiate Swimming
meet, it was learned here today.
According to Dr. Howard Brun-
dage, "He must stay here about
two weeks. He has a serious at-
tack of lobar pneumonia."
Welsh rested comfortably in
Grant Hospital, with his tempera-
ture and pulse improved. His spir-
its were high, making visitors feel
that he might be better before
Brundage predicted. The National
Intercollegiate meet will be held
on March 29 and 30.
Minnesota 10, Chicago-and Illinois 5,
Indiana 4, and Purdue and Wiscon-
sin none.
Michigan smashed two more marks
tonight in its overwhelming victory.
Heydt bettered the 1:37.1 backstroke
mark set here last night with a 1:36.8
performance. Gus Sharemet figured
in the other record as he churned the
century free-style in 52.1 to knock
five-tenths of a second off the old
mark set by Tomski last year. It was
the fastest 100-yard swim this sea-
son, and only two-tenths of a second
over Tomski's great varsity standard.
What Michigan didn't win tonight,
Ohio did. The Buckeyes dominated
the diving with their powerful corps
of Al Patnik, Earl Clark, and Jack
Ledford finishing first, second and

Gargoyle's Wunsch Seeks Beauty:
Beauty Cabinet' To Be Chosen
In Gargoyle Elections Tuesday

Students will go to the polls Tues-
day to elect a "Popular Front" of
beauty, including a queen and cab-
inet of nine other gorgeous gals to
reign over the campus, now groan-
ing under the anarchy that has been
the rule here ever since Marcia Con-
nell completed her term as queen
in her junior year.
According to Ellis Wunsch, '40, ed-
itor of Gargoyle, which is sponsoring
the balloting, the contest is being'
held this year to prove that beauty
did not graduate from Michigan
along with Marcia, "Four Out of
Five" notwithstanding. Marcia is
gone, says Wunsch, but not beauty.
And so, from all the girls on cam-
pus, a queen and nine others to
form a "Coalition of Beauty" will
be elected by students from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. Tuesday.
And the whole thing is going to
be run democratically, Wunsch
says.
