Chalks Up Eighth Win
(Special To The Daily)
LAFAYETTE, Ind. April 29.-An
undefeated band of Michigan golfers
rolled on to their third consecutive
Big Ten victory here today as they
crushed Purdue University, 14%/2-9%/2.
Led by the sensational play of
sophomore Goodwin Clark who alone
accounted for six of the Woverine
points in his two singles matches
and who shot the medal score for
the day, a 71, the Maize and Blue
chalked up their eighth straight win
of the season.

Clark's mediocre 80 in his morn-
ing match against Bud Goldstein was
still good enough to sweep all three
points as teammates Bob Palmer and
Bill Black took 21/2 points from Pur-
due's Capt. Bob Hoffer and Ed Dahle
in their best ball match. Captainr
Palmer shot a 77 while Black carded
a 75.
Tom Tussing and Dave Osler shot
a 77 and 78 respectively to shave but
one-half point from the Boilermaker
duo of C. T. Curran and Doug Mc-,
Daniels who carded rounds of 80 and1
76 to take 212 points, making the
score at the end of the morning ses-
sion, 6-3 in favor of Michigan. f

Institute Hears Dr. Park Predict
U.S. On Road To Japanese War
Education Institute Continues Discussions Today
With Defense, Mexico, Dictators Under Scrutiny

Biting off his words in the clippe
English of the Oriental, Dr. No-
Yong Park, noted far-eastern au-
thority, predicted yesterday in the
featured address of the first sessions
of the Eighth Adult Education In-
stitute that America is driving inex-
orably toward a Japanese war be-
cause of its refusal to embargo war
Dr. Park described the vicious cy-
cle being set into motion by the U.S.
Government as it bows to the wishes
of a willful minority of tprofiteers
who are more interested in their
"blood money" than the national
well being of the country.
America sells scrap iron to Ja-
jan, he explained. Japan melts it{
into armor plate for her new super-
navy. She grows overweening with
power and allies with members of

At Two Campus Points
Today And Tomorrow
A roll-call for peace will be held
by the American Student Union
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and to-
morrow in the Main Library and
University Hall, Ellen Rhea, '41,
president of the ASU, announced
The purpose of the roll-call, Miss
Rhea explained, is to give concrete
expression to the desire for peace
evidenced by 3,000 students who at-
tended the All-Campus Peace Rally
April 19, at which Senator Gerald
P. Nye warned the audience of the
steps likely to involve the United
States in war.
Copies of the following statement
which, together with the signatures'
will be sent to President Roosevelt,
will be available at tables in the
Library and University Hall where
students who are interested in keep-
ing the United States out of war
may sign the roll call for peace, Miss
Rhea pointed out.
"We, the undersigned, hereby pe-
tition the President of the United
States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt,
to express in words and action the
desire of the American people for
neutrality. We affirm our determin-
ation to keep America out of war;
to build in this nation a mighty
example of forward-moving democ-
racy; to understand the character
of war as a struggle for markets and
colonies and not in defense of de-
mocracy or small nations; to com-
bat the main danger of the peace
of the United States arising from

Prof. R. U. Ratcliff, director of

might of America . . . or the naval

And yet, despite these eventual-
ities, Dr. Park pointed out-and de-
spite the obvious sympathy of 83
per cent of the American people-
the American government permits
the export of war materials to Ja-
Favorite reason of the profiteers
for continuing their "blood" trade,
according to Dr. Park, is the widely
circulated story that a frustrated
Japan would lash out in war in a
supreme effort to cow the United
States into supplying her needs.
Such stories are "sheer bluff." If
the Japanese fight the United States,
Dr. Park said, they will be stabbed
in the back by China or Russia.
But what is more important than
such possibilities which are tenuous
as best is the realization that with-
out the very war materials she would
be fighting for, Japan would be
powerless to wage war for any ap-
preciable period of time because her1
totalitarian friends are unable to
supply her.
And when the situation is anal-f
yzed more closely, Dr. Park stated,
a cause of the present European con-
flict is perceived. In 1931, Europei
and America stood idly by while thet
Japanese, violating every canon of
international law, marched in on

Court Upholds
Walsh-Healey Act Case
Decision Hits Against
Wages -Hours Act
Amendment Passed
WASHINGTON, April 29.-UP)-
The Supreme Court spoke out to-
day against "judicial supervision of
administrative procedure" in a de-
cision upholding the right of the
executive and legislative branches to
set up any standards they see fit
for Government purchasing.
Specifically, the Court said that
the 1936 Walsh-Healey Act requiring
Government contractors to pay cer-
tain minimum wages conferred no
litigable rights upon the contractors
-that Government officials were re-
sponsible only to Congress for any
maladministration of it.
Injunction Set Aside'
The Court set aside an injunction
by which the District of Columbia'
Court of Appeals had restrained
Secretary Perkins from prescribing
minimum wages for iron and steel
workers engaged in filling Govern-
ment contracts. Justice Black's opin-
ion, from which Justice McReynols
dissented, made this observation:
"The record here disclosed the
'confusion and disorder' that canf
result from the delays necessarily
incident to judicial supervision of
administrative procedure developed
to meet present day needs of Gov-1
ernment and capable of operating
efficiently and fairly to both pri-
vate and public interests."
"Judicial restraint of those who
administer the Government's pur-
chasing," Black's opinion said at
another point, "would constitute a
break with settled judicial practice
and a departure into fields hithertot
wisely and happily apportioned by
the genius of our policy to the ad-
ministration of another branch of
House Acts On Wage-Hour Law
Meanwhile, the House, in its first
decision on a long string of sug-
gested changes in the Wage-Hour
Law, voted 74 to 38 today to make
the maximum hours provision more
flexible as it applies to regularly-
employed, salaried workers.
The amendment provides that
time-and-a-half pay shall not be
necessary for overtime work per-4
formed by a person who has worked
at an office or plant for at least
ix months on a regular salary, pro-
vided that in a 26-week period his
average work week shall not exceed
the maximum prescribed in the
present law. That maximum is now1
42 hours a week.-
The effect of the amendment
would be that a person might work,
say 50 hours a week, for a number1
of weeks but would not have to beI
paid overtime if his working time
during the rest of the half year wasc
so shortened that the average was
brought down to 42 a week.

Strategically Placed Allies
Defend Gains With Light
ArtilleryAnd Gun Nests
Nazis Seek Seizure
Of Allied Railways
STOCKHOLM, April 29.-()--
Germany's lightning legions struck
in a five-forked attack-four from
the south and one from the north-
against Allied positions along vital
railway lines in central Norway to-
The Allies were described as stra-
tegically-placed, however, with ma-
chine gun nests and light artillery
defending their positions.
Up the Gudbrandsdalen, a valley
lying northwest - southeast across
Norway, the Germans were reported
in Norwegian dispatches reaching
here to have occupied Kvam, 35
miles southeast of the British-held
railway junction of Dombas.
Farther east, where the Osterdalen
(east valley) roughly parallels the
Gudbrandsdalen, a German column
smashed northwestward from the re-
gion of Alvdal to the vicinity of
Hjerkinn, where they came upon
strong Allied positions. Fighting
was reported in progress there, with
the British battling to defend the
railway which links their forces at
Dombas and Storen to the north-
Norwegian troops were reported
fighting a third German contingent
tonight at Kvikne, on the snowy
highway about two-thirds of the way
from Tynset to Ulsberg. This battle
began last night and was reported
still in progress in exceedingly rough
mountain country.
(German dispatches said the in-
vaders had pushed to Inset, a mile
or two from Ulsberg and within
striking distance of the railway.)
The fourth German column from
the south sought to push on from
Roros, on the Osterdalen railway, to

Allied Troop Bases
LONDON, April 29.-( )-Damag-

bombers on the Allied troop landing

belief that control of the air will
be the decisive factor in the major
battle which slowly is developing in
central Norway.
Aware that German planes also
are harrying British lines of com.
munication and protecting the Ger-
man columns moving swiftly from
the south toward the garrison in
Trondheim, London was gloomy af-
ter a week of indifferent news from
the north.
Meanwhile, however, Britain ap-
peared determined to plug any pos-
sible gaps on the diplomatic and
economic fronts.
