Soviets Refute
Molotoff Visit
With Germans
Reich Officials Confident
Diplomatic Conference1
Is Eventual Possibility
British Fear Wave
Of Undersea War
(By Associated Press)
Reports that Russia and Germany
planned new steps toward closer col-
laboration in the near future we
jolted today by a Soviet announce-
ment which heightened speculation
that troubled the Easter week-end
throughout the Christian world.
Assurances were expressed in Ber-
lin quarters that Russia's Premier-
Foeign Commissar Vyacheslaff
Molotoff would be in the German
capital within a few days for con-
ferences with Adolf Hitler. However,
they were met by a statement from
Tass, official Soviet news agency,
that "rumors circulated by various
foreign agencies regarding the pro-
posed visit of Molotoff to Berlin or
some town in Germany or the West-
ern Ukraine are devoid of any foun-
Possibility Left Open
Berlin interpreted the Tass an-
nouncement as intended to counter-
act reports that Molotoff already
was in Germany or was on the way.
The possibility of a visit to Berlin
definitely was left open by the com-
munique, it was said in the Nazi cap-
Repots have been current that
Germany would try to extend the
Rome-Berlin axis to Moscow, with
Russia joining the combination as
a non-belligerent supplier of Ger-
many's eceonmic needs in her war
with the British-French allies.
In any event, the impression grew
that while the staff of German For-
eign Minister Joachim von Ribben-
trop was working feverishly on some
important matter, there would be no
hurry about winding it up. Said the
Russian Embassy at Berlin: "The
exact date for events in the offing
is not yet seen."
Britain Is Worried
Britain stewed about indications
that an undersea war of unprece-
dented extent was near, with a new
wave of German submarines preying
on North Sea shipping. France was
engrossed in the efforts of the newly-
born cabinet of Paul Reynaud to
strengthen itself by formulating a
"push the war" program before the
re-convening of Parliament April 2.
Although Saturday's pow-wow of
the new cabinet was attended by
leaders of te French air, land and
sea arms, including Generalissimo
Maurice Gustave Gamelin, there
were few who thought Reynaud's
war program would include a big
push on the western front.
London prepared to counter U-
boats with U-boats. Her own under-
sea craft were expected to menace
Germany's vital ore route from

New French Premier Praised
University After 1928 Visit

Capt. Schwarzkopf Defeats Maki

Renad And Kerillis Are
Impressed With Scope
Of Campus Facilities
France's new premier, Paul M.
Reynauc, has some fine impressions!
of the University of Michigan, and
he gained them all from personal
observa tions5.
The man who was called to relieve
the recent cabinet crisis in France
vsited "the campus here in late Octo-
ber, 1928, as a guest of Prof. James
K. Pollock of the political science de-
partment. He was at that time an
attorney, a deputy in the French
SChamber of Deputies, and a member
of the finance committee of that
Accompanying Reynaud was Henri
tee Kerillis, another deputy, then po-
litical editor of the right-center
newspaper "L'Echo de Paris." The
two men had journeyed to the United
States to study American political
campaign techniques in the Smith-
Hoover presidential campaign of

campaign from the inside. A letter
of introduction to Smith's campaign
manager was enough to get them
"in" with the Democrats; and they
also spent some time in Chicago stu-
dying the setup of the Republican
National Committee.
Stayed At Law Club
While in Ann Aror the two men
stayed at the Lawyers' Club. At a
luncheon given in their honor, both
men gave talks well remembered by
those of the faculty who were pres-
ent. They spoke in French, as nei-
ther his English well enough to
speak fluently.
Theyswere quoted in the Oct. 20,
1928 issue of The Daily as "deeply
impressed by the broad scope and
the many facilities of popular educa-
tion evinced here."
Upon their return to Paris, M. de
Kerillis wrote his impressions of Ann
Arbor and the University in a front
page article in "L'Echo de Paris."
This article was translated in the
December 22, 1928 issue of The Mich-
igan Alumnus.
Referred To Ann Arbor
In the article he made continuous
reference to "Ann Arbor, with its
charming houses and the brilliant
university." Referring to the gather-
ing places and to the general con-
ditions and facilities of the Univer-
sity, his most expressive comment
was "What comfort! What luxury!"
M. de Kerillis made special note
of the spirit of democracy which per-
vaded the University. He was amazed
to find that "a poor student who
shines the shoes of a more wealthy
comrade may find himself sitting at
table next to that very lad." 'The
article also commented on the Uni-
versity's "exceptionally rich" library.
Band Prepares
TO Give Annual
Spring Concert
Program Will Be Carried
Over National Network
ThursdayAt 9:15 P.M.
One of Michigan's enduring tradi-
tions will be strengthened when the
first bars of the Annual Spring Con-
cert are played by the University
Band at 8:15 p.m., Thursday, in
Hill Auditorium.
Insuring success to the concert is
the fact that from 9:30 p.m. to 10:15
p.m. the program will be broadcasv
over the first nationwide hookup ever
given to any college concert in th
United States. The audience will -w..
permitted to watch from their seats.a
Featured on the program will be
Morton Gould, prominent young
composer of symphony music, who
will act as guest conductor of the
Band. He will introduce for the first
time one of his most recent compo-
sitions, "Cowboy Rhapsody," at the
Spring Concert.
Mr. Gould achieved national pop-
ularity by his "Second American
Symphonette" from which "Pa-
vanne" wsa taken. Among his other
compositions which are to be in-
cluded in the Spring Concert are
"Prima Donna" and "Tropical."
As in the past there will be no ad-
mission charge for the Spring Con-
cert. According to Prof. William Re-
velli, however, those who wish to ob-
tain the best seats in Hill Auditorium
should come early. This request, he
said, is made in view of the atten-
dance at past Spring Concerts.

Of Track Stars; Canham Betters Own Record

In nine minutes and nine seconds, Michigan's great Capt. Ralph
Schwarzkopf last night handed Finland's world-record-holding Taisto
Maki a decisive 20-yard defeat in the two-mile feature event of the Mich-
igan A.A.U. Relays in Yost Field House.
Maki had been presented with an athletic blanket just before the race,
and he could have used it to protect himself against the breeze Schwarzkopf
generated as he swept around the Finn at the beginning of the last lap,
--after having trailed a stride behind
him for the entire race.

thrills, close battles, and an almost

Ex-Beauty Queen Returns
To Act In Vocational
Guidance Playlet
Marcia Connell, last year's campus
beauty queen when campus beauty
queens were still the thing, will come
to Ann Arbor to take the leading
feminine role in a vocational guidance
playlet, sponsored by the Student
Senate, at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in the
Union Ballroom.
William Sharkey, also a Michigan
alumnus, is to play the male lead in
the skit, which is called the "It's Your
Life" program, and was planned to
show college students the correct ap-
proach and proper apparel they
should use when applying for a job
after graduation. Both Miss Connell
and Sharkey are professional models
for a Detroit department store.
According to Robert Reed, '42,
chairman of the Senate committee
for the program, vocational guidance
men the country over agree that col-
lege students, nine times out of ten,
do not know the proper attitude to
take toward their prospective em-

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 23.-
(1P)-The best laid egg plans some-

Members of a Moose Lodge braved
sub-freezing cold today to plant 3,600
Easter eggs on the Pennsylvania capi-

Half an hour before the scheduled

broke through the lines of spectators
and began eating eggs as fast as they
found them.
By the time Mayor Howard E. Millir

Garner Called
Great Liberal
Initial Campaign Address
Made By Sheppard
WASHINGTON, March 23.-(P)--_
Making the first major campaign ad-
dress for Vice-President Garner, Sen-
ator Sheppard (Dem.-Tex.) declared
tonight that his fellow Texan had
been one of the leaders in the New
Deal fight for "greater liberalism."
This liberalism and Garner's 37
years' experience in the Federal Gov-
ernment, Sheppard declared, make
him "the ideal successor to the presi-
dency in 1940."
Sheppard, speaking on a national
radio network (NBC), emphasized
throughout his talk that Garner had
a liberal record, declaring:
"When the history of the last seven
years has been written, the crusade
to achieve greater liberalism in gov-
ernment will list Garner among its
outstanding leaders. Those of us in
the ranks of Congress who have
striven to enact the liberal nrogram
