Led by the Michigan Band and
heedless of the threat of rain, they
met in front of the main library,
marched through the Engineering
Arch and continued to Hill Audi-
torium by way of State St. There
the band continued playing favorite
campus tunes and Shirley W. Smith,
vice-president of the University, gave
a short address warning the students
of the "frankenstein monsters"
which threaten the world.
He also commented that it was
hard to "swing out" in these trou-
bled times and advised students to
be tolerant of others because the
core of civilization is "personality
and individuality."
Francis P. Hogan, '40. of Hornell
N. Y., president of the senior class
in the literary college, also made
a short address. The leading drum

Prof. Robert D. Brackett of the

Ex-President Hoover Proposes
To Centralize Defense Authority

Terms Political Coalitions,
.Boards, Foolish In Time
Of National Emergency
NEW YORK, May 27. -(')- A1
"single-headed administrator" to
direct the United States' vast defen-
sive armament program was proposed
tonight by former President Herbert
In a nation-wide radio speech on
''National Defense,'' he termed
boards and political coalitions "fool-
ish" in emergencies and advanced the
following program for "real pre-
Hoover's Program
"1. That a muntions administra-
tion can be created in Washington.
"2. It should have a single-headed
administrator with assistant heads
for labor, agriculture and industry.
"3. This administrator should be
an industrialist and not a politician.
"4. He should have authority to
appoint a non-partisan advisory
board representing the Army, Navy,
labor, transportation, manufacturing
and agriculture.
"5. The whole of the purchasing
and manufacturing for the Army and
Navy from private industry should
be done by this administrator. The
business of the Army and Navy is to
state what they want. It is for the
munitions administrator to deliver it.
"6. A research organization should
be created to constantly improve
these products.
"7. All appropriations for such
work should be made to this organi-
"This is a form of organization that
will get speed and economy," Hoover,
declared. "Urgency, speed and econ-
omy are not bureaucratic virtues."
He based his recommendations on

three "lessons" which he said had
been learned during and since the
World War.
Experience had shown, first, that
large-volume procurement of muni-
tions must be separated from Army
and Navy establishments, he said,
adding .that this was a job "for man-
agement and labor," a job that "re-
quires that thousands of factories be
coordinated to do their part."
The second lesson was that such
operations could not be "controlled by
boards, councils or conferences, he,
"The whole genius of the American
people has demonstrated over 150
years that when we come to execu-
tive action, including the office of
the President of the United States,
we must have single-headed respon-
Says Board Is "Foolish"
"It is just as foolish to set up a
board to conduct munitions business
as it would be to set up aboard to

must get these vast expenditures of
money out of politics-get them out

Germans Widen Gap Separating Trapped
Army In Flanders From Main Forces;
Reich Battalions Pound Ypres Area
Grave alarm spread through the Allied capitals last night over the
fate of their armies hemmed in on the English Channel coast and pounded
by all the force Germany's charging military machine could muster.
In London it was said the gravity of the military situation was increas-
ing hourly.
In Paris the French Cabinet remained in session until after midnight,
then announced only that Premier Paul Reynaud would address the na-
tion by radio at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday (2:30 a.m. EST).
As the Allied military position grew more critical Rome diplomatic
circles reported-without confirmation-that Italy had closed her French
and Swiss frontiers.
While no inkling was forthcoming on the matters discussed in the
secret French cabinet session, except that the military and political situa-
tion had been reviewed, it was known that France was greatly concerned

ment made yesterday by Prof. Paul
G. Kauper of the Law School.
The following students: Alfred El-
lick, '41L, Omaha, Nebr.; Jeremiah
Belknap, '41L, Napoleon, Ohio; Eu-
gene Kinder, '41L, Gates Mills, Ohio,
and William Sutton, '41L, Butler, Pa.
were named by the Law Faculty to
serve as editorial associates on the
Law Review staff.
Hillier and his associates will serve
as an editorial board to head the Stu-
dent Editorial Staff of the Law Re-
view. The remaining members of
the student staff will be appointed
before the beginning of the 1940-41
school term. A high academic record
in the Law School as well as the
quality of the Law Review work done
during the junior try-out period fur-
nishes the basis for selection.
The Michigan Law Review is a
scholarly publication issued under the
auspices of the Law School and repre-
sents a cooperative effort of the Law
faculty and students.

writing of comments on legal ques-
tions and decision notes on recent in-
teresting court cases.

Supreme Court
Upholds Union
In Strike Case
Tribunal States Sit-Down
Is .Beyond Jurisdiction
Of FederalJudiciary
WASHINGTON, May 27. -(N)--
Restraint of trade arising from a
labor union's sit-down strike "of the
most brutal and wanton character"
was held by the Supreme Court to-
Pay not to violate the Sherman Act.
The restraint did not "have an ef-
fect upon prices in the market or de-
prive purchasers or consumers of the
advantages which they derive from
free competition," the Court said in
a 6-3 decision. Therefore, the tri-
bunal added, it was not "the kind
of restraint at which the act is
Chief Justice Hughes demurred at
this construction as too narrow and
pointed out that "leaders of indus-
try have been taught in striking fash-
ion" that if they "impose a direct
restraint" upon trade, even for "ben-
evolent purposes," they become sub-
ject to criminal prosecution. Jus-
tices McReynolds and Roberts joined
the dissent.
The far-reaching decision, embod-
ying a further clarification of labor's
status under the Sherman Act, was
delivered in the case of the Apex Ho-
siery Company of Philadelphia,
which sued a local of the America
Federation of Full-Fashioned Hosiery
Workers for triple damages under
the act as a result of a seven-week
sit-down strike in 1937.
The Supreme Court majority, in
an opinion by .Justice Stone, likewise
declared that the union, "by substi-
tuting the primitve method of trial
by combat for the ordinary processes
of justice and more civilized means
of deciding an industrial dispute, vi-
olated the civil and penal laws of

over the likelihood of Italy's en-
tering the war.
In bitter fighting throughout the
night the Germans appeared to be
slowly widening the gap between the
French Army south along the Somme
and the Allied armies trapped in
Flanders, above the Nazi salient to
the sea.
Having fallen back during the
day, the Allies were -making their
stand along a new line defending
the Channel.
The German High Command said
its armies, striving to snap the steel
trap on approximately 1,000,000 Al-
lied troops in Flanders, were pound-
ing at the historic World War battle
sector of Ypres, Belgium, after
storming across the River Lys at
several points.

In crossing the Lys, the Germans
broke through the last river barrier
separating them from the English
Channel ports of Ostend and Zee-
The biting jaws of the Nazi pincers
in the Ypres sector-threatening to
sever the eastern arm of the Allied
forces already encircled in Northern
France and Belgium-were reported
only 18 miles apart.
French troops fell back under the
terrific impact of the Nazi assaults,
which swept in wave after wave
apparently heedless of manpower
losses, and took a new stand in the
sector north of Valenciennes, west
of the Scheldt River. Here was the
main target of the Nazi fury, driv-
ing from the east towards Ypres
and from the southwest towards
Nazi Pincers Closing
Simultaneously, the Germans wid-
ened by approximately 15 miles the
northern side of their vital "bottle-
neck" of their corridor to the Eng-
lish Channel.
* The French admitted that this
"feed-line" to Nazi troops now
swarming along the Channel coast
had been deepened to extent now
between Peronne and Arras.

Washington tonight.
An additional $32,000,000 was add-
ed to the huge expenditure already
in prospect when President Roose-
velt asked Congress for that sum
today to train civilian pilots. With
his request he sent a letter from the
budget bureau saying that the Civil
Aeronautics Authority was prepared
to undertake immediately a big ex-
pansion contemplating preliminary
training for 45,000, secondary train-
ing for 9,000 and advanced training
for 40,000 more.

Congress, while awaiting a deci-
sion as the financing question, prod-
ded the big armament plan through
the various legislative processes. One
subcommittee agreed to work far
into the night to hasten action on
