English Drive
In Air Attack
On Naval Base
Nazi Raid On Scapa Flow
Marks Another Attempt
To CrippleSeapower
Rumanian Youth
Drafted To Farms
(By the Associated Press )
Striking again from the air at Bri-
tain's seapower, German warplanes
last night raided the British naval
base at Scapa Flow but the Air Min-
istry said the Nazis were driven off
and no British ship "was hit or dam-
D.N.B., the German official news
agency, said however, that the raiders
"effectively 'attacked" a number of
British warships lying in the Orkney
Island naval base.
The British Air Ministry's com-
munique said the German bombers,
appearing over the base at dusk,
dropped an unannounced number of
bombs before they were driven off by
the fire of ships and shore batteries.
"One German aircraft is believed to
have been brought down by gun-
fire," the communique said.
Attack Last Night
The Scapa Flow attack last night
capped a day filled with aerial war-
fare and marked by Prime Minister
Chamberlain's emphasis on Britain's
welding of a "sterling line" of block-
ading trade agreements with neutrals
around Germany. The British report-
ed the repulse of a spirited Nazi air
attack on North Sea convoys.
For their part, the British said they
bombed German patrol boats near
Sylt-but the Germans said that raid
was a failure.
The British also reported chasing
an enemy plane from the south-
eastern English coast. Dispatches
from the front said three British hur-
ricane fighters fought nine German
Messerschmitt planes Monday and
downed three of the Nazi craft.
Cheerful And Confident
Chamberlain, seemingly cheerful
and confident, greeted the first ses-
sion of the House of Commons after
.its Easter recess with the announce-
ment that trade pacts had been
signed with Norway, Sweden, Iceland,
Belgium, The Netherlands and Den-
mark. He added that discussions are
in progress' with Switzerland and
that talks would begin soon with
Rumania and Yugoslavia.
The Prime Minister explained that
each agreement strictly limits exports
by the neutrals to the Reich, thus
putting a brake on the flow of raw
materials to Germany.
Chamberlain touched only brief-
ly on actual warfare with Germany,
but warned the Reich that the Bri-
tish navy still controls the North
Sea and asserting that "certain prac-
tical steps" are being taken to stop
the sailing of cargo ships from Scan-
dinavia to Germany with Swedish
iron ore.
Battle Witnessed
Meanwhile'the Danish radio quoted
a Norwegian ship captain as telling
of witnessing a battle between "two
large cruisers" in the North Sea Mon-
day. He was unable to identify the
ships or give the outcome of the
fight, having rushed his ship out of
the battle area.
Britain's war supply system suf-
fered a small dent when an explosion

in the T.N.T. plant of a munitions
factory in Scotland killed three per-
sons and injured five. It was the
fifth munitions blast since the start
of the war seven months ago.
In the nervous Balkans, where the
belligerents are jockeying furiously
fo reconomic advantages, Rumania
announced that 4,000,000 young per-
sons would be drafted into a huge
agricultural army.
Deutseher Verein
Hears Streidieck
Discussing "Famous German Sci-
entists of the 19th Century," Dr. Wer-
ner F. Striedieck of the German de-
partment delivered last night the
fourth in series of lectures sponsored
by the Deutscher Verein.
He mentioned Liebig, who started
the first chemical laboratory school
in Germany, where his subject was
taught as it is today. He described
how Helmholtz, the inventor of the

European War
To Talk Here
S. L. A. Marshall of The Detroit
News will discuss "The Chance for
European Peace" in a public lecture
at 2 p.m. today in Room E, Haven
Hall, under the sponsorship of the
journalism department.
Besides being an editorial writer,
Mr. Marshall is a photographer and
military commentator for radio sta-
tion WWJ. He began broadcasting
during the present European war
because he objected to the inter-
pretations given events by men who
knew nothing of military science
which he considers very important
in understanding what is happening.
Since he served overseas during the
World War and later was a foreign
correspondent, he is familiar with
the terrain of the European battle-
fields and military tactics possible
under the present conditions.
Although he claims he does not
like photography, many of Mr. Mar-
shall's pictures haveibeen reproduced
in rotogravure sections throughout
the country. He never takes a picture
twice of the same subject, and his
photographs of news events violate
all rules of camera work, critics
claim. Yet, commented Prof. John
Brumm, chairman of the journalism
department, he is a remarkably suc-
cessful photographer.j

To Wagner Act
Are Proposed
Labor Committee SeeksI
To Forestall Changes
Called TooSweeping
WASHINGON, April 2. -(/P)- The
House Labor Committee, seeking to
forestall Wagner Act amendments
which its chairman calls too sweeping,
prepared four amendments of its own
today and laid plans to put them
through the House under procedure
preventing any changes or additions.
The move immediately aroused op-
position. Rep. Ramspeck (Dem.-Ga.)
himselfa member of the Labor Com-
mittee, called the plan "asinine" and
"worse than any gag rule I ever heardl
One of the Committee's amend-
ments would require the Labor Board
to recognize a craft union as a col-]
lective bargaining unit at the request
of a majority of workers in such an
organization. (This was endorsed
by an AFL representative.)
Another would permit employers'
to ask the Board for a collective bar-
gaining election when two or more
unions each claim to represent a
majority of the employes. (The law
now gives this privilege only to
unions but the Board by regulation
last year gave it to employers.)

E. S. cuckert Takes Over Lead
In Local Social Service Survey

The current local survey of social
and health agencies received added
impetus at a meeting yesterday in the
Rackham Auditorium as E. S. Guck-
ert director of the Detroit Council of
Social Agencies, was introduced to
members of the Social Service Semi-
nar, prior to taking over direction of
the survey.
The survey was inaugurated, as
Prof. Laylin K. James of the Law
School, chairman of the survey com-
mittee, pointed out at the meeting,
because its need has been expressed
in questions asked by local citizens
solicited for contributions to the
Community Fund.
Speaking on the need for a survey

Guckert stressed first the necessity
of a strong organization that would
include representative laymen. The
survey will be constituted mainly of
consultation and observation. Social,
business, educational, professional,
administrative and labor representa-
tives will confer with the survey staff
in a united effort to meet the needs
and problems of this community, al-
ways keeping in mind its potential
and actual resources . . . Profes-
sional, expert and lay groups will do
the questioning.

Beloit Opposes
In No Decision


(By the Associated Press)
WILKES-BA RREPa., April 2.-
(/')-Flood waters which have claim-
ed six lives across Pennsylvania and
left thousands temporarily homeless
subsided an inch an'hour tonight.
A forecast of rain permitted no
let-up in the fight against the swirl-
ing tide-a fight of men and ma-
terials extending from this anthra-
cite city of Northeastern Nennsyl-
vania west and south down the valley
of the Susquehaana toward the
Maryland border,
The feeling persisted that 'the
worst was over." But the flow still
spread over low-lying industrial sec-
tions of Kingston, Pittston and Ply-
mouth, adjoining Wilkes-Barre. Up-
wards of 6,000 sought higher ground
in this region alone.
A constant threat, however, was
a fire burning dangerously close to
storage tanks containing between
1,500,000 and 2,000,000 gallons of
gasoline. The flames were blazing
in one of the tanks which overturned
and exploded yesterday. Boats con-
stantly patrolled the sector.

Michigan varsity debaters met Be-
loit College in the season's final
debate on isolationism last night in
the north lounge of the Union. No
decision was rendered.
Upholding 'the affirmative, Neil
Danberg and Byram Reed from Be-
loit argued that the "cash-and-
carry" legislation is clearly not neu-
tral, that it will ultimately lead us
into the war unless supplanted by
isolationism. Just as before World
