Allies Entrench At Namsos
Front; Norwegian Units
Expected To Capitulat
British Admit Loss
In Southern Sector
STOCKHOLM, May 3 (Friday)-
(AP)--With Allied resistance in south-
ern Norway completely withdrawn,
German troops from the Oslo dis-
trict today began flooding north-
ward towards Trondheim and a pos-
sible battle with Allied forces north
of that big port.
The Germans were reported al-
ready advancing quickly to recapture
such points as Roros and Tynset
in the Glomma river valley, which
they abandoned 'uesday.
How much resistance scattered
Norwegian units were offering could
not be ascertained, but it was be-
lieved that formal resistance south
of Trondheim was practically fin-
Attention Focused On Namsos
Full attention now is focussed on
the British-held Namsos front, 100
miles above Trondheim.
The impression prevails that the
Allies will make a determined effort
to hold this area for the time being
at least, with the possibility of large
scale battles in the near future-
unless the Germans content them-
selves with holding their present
line across Norway from Trondheim
to Sweden.
Britain's admitted defeat in the
first decisive phase of the Norwe-
gian campaign threw into bold out-
line Fricay Prime Minister Cham-
berlain's declaration that while Nor-
way is to be no "sideshow" in Eu-
rope's war, the Allies will not weaken
their "vital center," nor relax their
guard against a Nazi drive on Eng-
land itself.
It brought renewed speculation
whether further swift strokes of
German armed force may now be
expected in other directions, perhaps
on the Western Front.
An Eye On Italy
The Prime Minister's disclosure
that a strong Allied fleet is steaming
through the Mediterranean to Alex-
andria was taken to mean that this
is Britain's way of keeping an eye
on Italy, Germany's restive but so
far non-belligerent axis partner.
Announcement of the Allied fleet
movement was followed up late
Thursday night by orders to all Eng-
lish ships in Genoa harbor to sail at
once for England via the long, 15,000
mile route through the Suez Canal
and via Cape Town, Africa.
At the same uime the Netherlands
destroyer Van Galen, lying in Genoa
harbor, got orders from Dutch au-
thorities to sail for Netherlands ter-
ritorial waters and she put to sea
at once.
Nine To Face
Illinois Today

Lineup Of Sluggers;
Jack BarryWill Pitch
Still clinging to a faint mathe-
matical ray of hope for the Big Ten
baseball pennant, Michigan's floun-
dering Wolverines face a formidable
Illinois nine at Champaign this af-
ternoon and tomorrow.
And if Capt. Charlie Pink & Co.
wish to keep alive their meager titu-
lar hopes, it'll take a decided rever-
sal of the form the Wolverines have
displayed in the last three home

games to turn back the Illini.
Hot on the trail of Iowa's league-
leaders, Coach Wallie Roettger's team
boasts a batting order studded with
six lettermen and five hitters who
are in the select .300 circle. In fact,
the Illinois mentor has so many first
class ball players on hand this sea-
son that two more veterans, Dick'
Kucera and Len Kallis, have been
ousted from the regular lineup by
sophomores Liz Astroth and Paul

Profs. Hoover,
Bethell Share
Russel Award
Annual Research Prize
Winners Are Announced
By President Ruthven
Frank H. Bethell of the medical
school, and Prof. Edgar M. Hoover,
of the economics department, yester-
day were named the University's
outstanding junior research experts
for 1939-40. ,
Hoover and Bethell were selected
as co-winners of the Henry Russel
award, given annually to "a younger
member of the faculty on the basis
of work already done and his prom-
ise for the future." This is the first
lime that the award has been shared
since it was established in 1920 by
the will of the late Henry Russel,
of Detroit.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
named the winners yesterday fol-
towing the presentation of the an-
nual Henry Russel lecture by Dr.
Frank N. Wilson, of the medical
school. The Russel lectureship,
which was assigned to Dr. Wilson
several weeks ago, is given to the
member of the faculty deemed to
have achieved the highest distinc-
tion for his work during the past
Prof. Bethell, sharer of the Russel
award, is a specialist in blood studies,
and achieved prominence though his
field study in Hillsdale County, of
the anemias of pregnancy. He found
an unusually large percentage of
anemia cases among pregnant wo-
men in that county, and also de-
vised a simple and inexpensive meth-
od of treatment. His study has now
been extended to Allgan County.
A study of the location of indus-
trial factories and service as a spe-
cial consultant for the St. Lawrence
Waterway Survey earned Prof. Hoo-
ver his distinction. He has partici-
pated in many economic confer-
ences, and in 1939 was appointed to
recommend a national minimum
wage for the shoe industry.

17 Conservative Senators
Control Majority Vote
In Student Organization
Speaker To Retire;
Corniittees Listed
Robert Reed, '42, recently re-
elected member of the Student Sen-
ate, was elected president for the
coming term by an 18 to 8 vote, at
last night's spirited organizational
Hugo Reichard, Grad., minority
leader, received the second highest
number of votes and was therefore
elected vice-president. Arnold White,
'41, was re-elected secretary by ac-
Reed, majority leader and a last-
minute affiliate of the new Mich-
igan Party, has been a member of
the Senate for the last two semes-
ters, and has served as chairman
of the Winter Peace Parley and pre-
siding officer for the Spring Parley.
He ran for re-election last week as
a non-partisan but later declared
his intention of becoming affiliated
with the Michigan Party.
Active On Committees
Reichard, who was elected last
Fall as an American Student Union
candidate, has been active on a large
number of committees and was a
member of the Spring Parley con-
tinuations committee. White has
been secretary for the Senate for
the past semester.
In addition to the eight Senators
elected last week who are members
of the conservative Michigan Party,
nine already in the Senate have thus
declared sympathy, making the Sen-
ate dominated by a single conserva-
tive party for the first time in its
history. Last fall's election saw the
Senate split almost equally liberal
and conservative, but middle-of-the-
roaders added their weight to the
conservatives and thus secured them
a majority. This year, however, with
the Michigan Party controlling 17
out of the 30 votes, the Senate has
a clear conservative majority.
Duesenberry Presides
Speaker James T. Deusenberry,
Grad., presided at last night's meet-
ing, but it was reported that he will
retire from the position of Speaker
next fall. After the 16 new members
were formally welcomed into the
Senate, the elections of officers were
held and the meeting then turned
to matters of organization.
Committees set up are: Rights,
Public Affairs, Student Affairs and
Service, Student Government, Par-
ley, and a Function Committee. The
chairmen of these committees, not
yet appointed by President Reed, will
form the Ways and Means Commit-
tee, and with an added three mem-
bers, will serve as a Judiciary Com-
mittee. Another committee, which
will be set up if the President so
desires, is an Education Committee.

George Roach Plays
On National Hookup
George Roach, GradSM., was guest
soloist on a nation-wide radio hook-
up last night over the National
Broadcasting System.
Roach, first bass clarinetist in the
Band, appeared on the program en-
titled "Musical Americana," which
features the orchestar of Raymond
Paige and commentator Deems Tay-
lor. His selection was "Deep Wood"
by David Bennett.
Orim W. Kaye
Discusses Vital
Youth Problem
tate NYA Administrator
Tells Institute Session
Of YoungUnempleyed
"The youth problem in the nation
is the same as the adult problem-
the task of making a living," stated
Orin W. Kaye, state administrator
for the National Youth Administra-
tion, as he addressed yesterday's
luncheon meeting of the Adult Edu-
cation Institute.
Of most concern today to the ma-
jority of American people, Kaye point-
ed out, is the question "How can I
make a living for myself, my wife,
my family and how can I make that
living today?"
This problem particularly concerns
youth, in order to adequately cope
with it, Kaye advised youth to war
against the three-fold enemy of "ig-
norance, poverty and selfishness."
The Michigan NYA administration
has fought in this battle along with
youth, he explained. It has given
much needed support to high school
students, collegians and young peo-
ple out of college.
More than 13,000 high school stu-
dents received a six dollar stipend
from the NYA. At least 6,000 col-
lege students are given a wage large
enough to enable them to "remain
in college on a basis of decency,"
according to Kaye.
The most pressing problem con-
frontin the NYA is among the 110,-
000 jobless youth who are without
work and not in school. At this time,
Kaye concluded, the NYA can em-
ploy only 14,000 of these individuals
in an effort to fit them for private
Leading events among the Insti-
tute's concluding sessions today are
Mrs. Frederick B. Fisher's address on
"The World Looks at Chiang Kai-
Shek", and the lecture "Labor's Ob-
jectives" analyzed by Arthur E. Raab,
chairman of the Michigan Labor Me-
diation Board.

from Shawsheen Village, Mass., and
has been active in Congress activi-
ties since the second semester of his
freshman year when he was a mem-
ber of the publicity committee. After
serving on this committee during his
sophomore year, he was named chair-
man of the student welfare commit-
tee in his junior year. He is also
active on the Intercooperative Coun-
cil, and is a member of the Brandeis
Cooperative House.
A resident of Vegreville in Alberta,
Canada, and a transfer student from
the University of Alberta, Panar will

Prof. Bennett Weaver of the English
department, W. Lloyd Berridge of the
University Hospital staff, and the
outgoing senior officers.
The new officers will be honored at
a dinner to be given at 6:15 p.m.

National Phi Beta Kappa Head
Speaks At initiation Ceremony

A ballroom full of initiates and
members of Phi Beta Kappa were
told last night by the First Lady
of the key men that being a scholar
need be no more boring than being
the hero of some blood-and-thunder
detective novel.
Speaking on "Literary Detectives,"
Dean Marjorie Hope Nicolson of
Smith College and the first woman
ever to head Phi Beta Kappa ex-
pressed the belief that her life had
been interesting because of her pas-
sion for learning and not in spite
of it.
