EVANSTON, Ill., May 25-Power
and all around strength told the
tale here in Dyche stadium this af-
ternoon as Michigan's mighty track
forces rolled triumphantly on to
their fourth consecutive outdoor
It was a two team struggle, as
everyone had expected, with the bal-
anced Wolverines, even minus the
services of their captain, Ralph
Schwarzkopf, scoring 51 points while
their chief rival, Indiana, could gar-
ner but 352.
The Hoosiers gambled on their
sandy-haired speedster, Roy Coch-
ran. Upon his work in four events
rested Indiana hopes, but the sen-
sational junior star scored only one
point for his team today. In his
very first race, the 100-yard dash,
he pulled a muscle, finished fifth,
and was forced to withdraw from
competition for the remainder of the
Hoosiers Weakened
Without him, Indiana's hopes vir-
tually collapsed. The Hoosiers were
no match for the powerful Wolver-
ine squad, which won four individual
titles and scored points in every
event except the javelin, broad jump
and two-mile run.
Michigan was behind only twice
during the entire program today.
The first occasion came after the
curtain-raising mile run, which
Campbell Kane, Indiana's distance
ace, won in 4:15. Ohio's Les Eisen-
hart and Ed Hedges, also from In-
diana, set the early pace, but as
they started on the last lap, Ed Hol-
derman, Purdue's mainstay, hustled
into the lead followed closely by
And around the track they raced,
battling stride for stride all the way,
with Kane turning on the steam as
they entered the stretch and going
on to win by two yards. Ed Barrett,
the Michigan junior, finished fast
to garner fourth place.[
Breidenbach Wins
But the Wolverines strode back
into the lead even before they had
a chance to record the results on the
big board in the field. Warren Brei-
denbach successfully defended his
quarter-mile crown, gaining his
greatest competition from teammate
Jack Leutritz. Breidenbach moved
into the lead after 100 yards of run-
ning, held on around the turn, met
the bid of Ohio's Jack Sulzman, and
pulled out again With 30 yards left.
It looked all Breidenbach, but
strangely enough, Leutritz wasn't
convinced. From fourth he came
steaming into contention, passed
Sulzman and Wilmer McCown of
Illinois, and just missed nipping his
teammate at the tape.
Indiana held the lead at just one
other point, and that followed the
two-mile run in which the Hoosiers
picked up seven points on their foes.
Michigan failed to place a runner
in the grueling grind, while Wayne

Tolliver, in second, and Hedges, in
third, both came through for In-
diana, giving them 32 points to Mich-
igan's 30.
But it wasn't long again until the
Wolverines were back in front. In
the very next event, the 220-yard
low hurdles, Michigan picked up 10
valuable points to put the meet in
the bag.

Ruthven Talks
At Dedication
Of Observatory
President Cites Science's
Role In Improvement
Of Man's Environment
Stressing the part the scientist has
played in the improvement of man's
relations to his physical environment,
President Ruthven accepted the new
McGregor Building and Tower Tele-
scope for the University yesterday at
Lake Angelus.
While science has added to our
comfort and, incidentally, to our sor-
row, it has built a broad foundation
of knowledge which will free us from
the workings of nature, he comment-
ed, pointing out that the knowledge
of how to use victories must accom-
pany their achievement.
Judge Henry S. Hulbert of Detroit
presented the building andftelescope
to the University on behalf of the
McGregor Fund Trustees; while Dr.
Robert McMath director of the Mc-
Math-Hulber Observatory and Prof.
Heber Curtis director of the observa-
tories of the University accepted on
behalf of the Observatory.
Charles F. Kettering, director of
research for the General Motors Cor-
poration addressed the assembled
guests at the dedication on "Fron-
tiers of Research."
Latest addition to .the McMath-
Hulbert Observatory, the McGregor
gift is further endowed by the Trus-
tees to cover partial maintenance
costs over the forthcoming period of

Morrison of the highway engineer-
ing department as chairman, Sigma
Rho Tau's 11th Tung Oil Banquet
is scheduled to get underway at 6
p.m. Tuesday in the main ballroom
of the League.
The Governor, who will arrive here
with a police escort at 5:45 p.m., will
present his first address on the cam-
pus on "Character in Democracy."

stores, Prof. Robert D. Brackett of
the engineering English department
announced last night.
Featured events at the annual stag
affair will be the presentation of theI
"Cooley Cane" to the student who
has done most for the Stump Speak-
ers' Society and an impromptu
speaking contest held among mem-
bers of the faculty.
At the present time there
are only two in existence-one of:
which cannot be found.
In order to assist Professor Mor-
rison in conducting the faculty

tals of the game the day before, eked
out a close 9-0 victory. Michigan
won again the following year, 26 to 6.
The two teams did not meet again
until 1898 when the Wolverines again
emerged victorious, 26 to 0. In 1899
and 1900, they won by scores of 12
to 0 and 7 to .
One of Yost's famous point-a-min-
ute teams rolled over the lads from
South Bend in 1902 defeating them
23 to 0. Relations were resumed in
1908, Michigan winning, 12 to 6. The
following year, after Notre Dame's
first victory in eight games, rela-
tions were severed.
Purdue is also on Michigan's new
schedule. They will travel to Ann
Arbor to tangle with the Wolverines
on Oct. 28, 1944. The last time the
Boilermakers appeared there was in
1930. Defending their Conference
title, they invaded Ann Arbor for
the first game of the season and
lost, 14-13, when Harry Newman
converted both Wolverine points af-
ter touchdown in a second period
The coaches also decided today.
that in 1943 and 1944, Conference
teams could play nine games, pro-
vided that six of them were with
Big Ten opponents. Michigan, how-
ever, stuck to the old eight-game
The decision of Michigan and No-
tre Dame officials to renew the grid-
iron rivalry between the two schools
was considered here as the climax of
a trend evident for some time.
Ever since Michigan reopened re-
lations with the Irish in other sports,
it has been considered probable that
the two schools would meet on the
gridiron as soon as schedule diffi-
culties could be ironed out.
1,600 Seniors
To Swing Out
Of University
Reminiscent strains of "The Yellow
and Blue" will fill the air, and mem-
ories of Ann Arbor town will occupy
the minds of 1,600 seniors today as
they march around the campus in
traditional Swing Out procession.
Led by the Michigan Band play-
ing Alma Mater melodies the class
of 1940 will assemble at 4:30 p.m. in
front of the library steps and march
down the diagonal through the En-
gineering Arch, swing down South
University to the Union, and parade
up State and North University Ave-
nues to Hill Auditorium.
President of the senior class, Fran-
cis P. Hogan, will there deliver a
farewell oration to his fellow class-
mates and introduce Shirley W.
Smith, vice-president of the Univer-
sity, who will give a short tribute to
the class of 1940.
In case of inclement weather,
Thomas Tussing, '40, chairman in
charge of arrangements, said that
all seniors are to go directly to Hill
Auditorium at 4:30 p.m. Caps and
gowns are the order of the day, but
many were probably unable to secure
them in time. Tussing urged that
all seniors participate in the cere-
monies with or without academic

Calais Captured
Weygand Selects New Staff To Replace
15 Ousted Generals As Crisis Nears;
Allies Try Counter Pincer Movement
Germany has trapped and is ready to destroy the entire attack army
of France, an authorized source declared tonight in Berlin.
The decisive Nazi military operations in The Netherlands, Belgium and
Northern France, he continued, have been accomplished by just one-third
of Germany's 5,000,000 first line troops.
At present, he went on, the Reich has 65 percent of her army still unen-
gaged and will be ready in a few days to take Paris, storm the main Maginot
Line or invade England.
Backed up against the English Channel coast within the area which
the Germans have encircled in the past two weeks, are 500,000 French;
400,000 Belgians and 200,000 English, this spokesman declared.
Since it can be considered, he went on, that France's attack army is
bone, all she has left is 120 divisions of first line troops to defend Paris,
hold the Maginot Line and to protect her Southeastern flank against a
possible attack by Italy from across the Alps.
Germans driving northward up the coast entered Calais, 22 miles from
