As Indiana Is


Breidenbach Sets Pace

Greg Rice Breaks
Own Indoor Mark
CHICAGO, Ill., March 22.-Turn-
ing on a brilliant last lap kick Mich-
igan's Warren Breidenbach thun-
dered to the tape 35 yards ahead of
Indiana's tired Campbell Kane, as
he anchored Michigan's great two
mile relay team to the Chicago re-
lays Championship here tonight.
Burning up the fast board track
in this annual classic before 10,000
enthusiastic fans, the Wolverine
quartet sped over the 22 laps in the
phenomenal time of 7:46.5, less than
five seconds off the World's Indoor
record of 7:41.6 set by Georgetown
University in 1925.
Rice Sets New Record
Other highlights in the colorful
carnival which attracted every ace
spike performer in the nation were
barrel-chested Greg Rice in the two-
mile, where he set a new world's
record, Mel Walker's fine high jump-
ing, Hoosier Campbell Kane's upset
win in the famed banker's mile run
over Walter Mehl, John Munski, and
Gene Venzke, and Fred Wolcott's
phenomenal hurdling in the starr
studded field.
Michigan's other three cindermen,
Capt. Don Canham, Bud Piel and
Al Thomas, succeeded in winning
but one second place championship
among them. This came when Piel
finished behind Dashman Herbert
Thomas in the special Olympic spring
Average Remarkable Time
In the two-mile special matched
relay, which pitted the Wolverines'
foursome against Hoosier and Notre
Dame quartets, coach Ken Doherty's
four lads, Dave Matthews, Johnny
Kautz, Bob Ufer and Breidenbach
* averaged a remarkable 1:56.5 for their
half mile legs.
Leading off for the Maize and Blue,
sophomore Matthews ran a fine race
against Indiana's powerful Paul Ken-
dall, passing the baton to teammate
Kautz only two yards behind the
fast flying Hoosier. Spikes churning
furiously around the banked turns,
the Wolverine junior spurted past
weary Roy Cochran, obviously fa-
tigued from his previous six hundred
race, and lengthened his lead to a
respectable 15 yards.
Stretch Margin
Taking the baton at the half way
mark Ufer lost slightly to his fresh
Hoosier foe, Wayne Tolliver, but still
handed Breidenbach an eight yard
lead, which spelled defeat for the
Hoosiers. Running with a beautiful
smooth stride, the Wolverine senior
stretched out the 35 yard margin
over "Golden Boy" Kane to win the
line triumph handily.
Climax of the evening from the na-
tional standpoint was Rice's incredi-
ble last lap sprint when he lowered
his own world's indoor mark from
8:53.4 to 8:51.1. Although Michigan's
former Captain, Ralph Schwarzkopf,
was forced to drop out at the end of
one and a half miles, the sturdy little
distance ace had a tremendous kick
left, and bulleted the final quarter
like a freshman in 61.1 seconds.
W esl e yan Guild

The third of four discussion meet-
ings will be held at 6:45 p.m. today
at the Wesleyan Guild following a
6 p.m. supper and fellowship.

There will be four discussion groups
on world conflict, community con-
flict, social correction and mari-
tal relations. The group on world
conflict will have Rev. Ralph At-
kins, Flint District Superintendent

Mail Fraud
Trial Is Set
For Tuesday
Frank McKay WillFace
First Of Four Charges
Ref ore Judge Lederle
Ford Motor Co.
Is Alleged Victim
DETROIT, March 22.-(P)-The
federal government will make its next
move against Frank D. McKay, key
figure in Michigan's political jigsaw
for 15 years, next week.
Trial of Mcay on the first of four
mail fraud .adictments returned by
a special Federal Grand Jury last
November is scheduled to begin Tues-
day before U. S. District Judge Ar-
thur F. Lederle. In the first case,
McKay, Republican National Com-
mitteeman from Michigan and State
Treasurer for three terms prior to
1930, is accused specifically of caus-
ing use of the mails to defraud
against the Ford Motor Company,
and its president, Edsel Ford, fol-
lowing the 1938 election campaign.
The government charges that Mc-
Kay induced Ford to sign two checks
on the pretext that the money was
needed to retire a deficit of the Re-
publican State _ Central Committee,
which actually did not exist, and later
caused the entire amount to be di-
verted to his own uses. The indict-
ment specified that the original
checks were conveyed by mail from
the Ford Motor Company, to the De-
troit agency of Bass-Luckoff, Inc.,
which actually did not exist, and
later caused the entire amount to be
diverted to his own uses. The indict-
ment specified that the original
checks were conveyed by mail from
the Ford Motor Company to the De-
troit Agency of Bass-Luckoff, Inc.,
which handled Republican campaign
advertising, and that the mails were
again used to forward an equivalent
sum from the agency to McKay's
office in Grand Rapids-as well as
in clearing the checks between the
banks where they were cashed and
the banks on which they were rdawn.

Tenseness Of Situation
Officials To Leave
For Vienna Tonight
(By The Associated Press)
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, March 22.
-The Yugoslav Government, yield-
ing to a German ultimatum, com-
mitted itself tonight to enter the
Axis orbit despite grave fears the
step might cause civil war.
Mass resignations of high officials
opposed to the alliance, street dem-
onstration in many cities, and un-
easy friction-in the army ranks were
grave manifestations of the violent
and growing .internal dissent.
Paul Arranges Trip
The harried Chief Regent, Prince
Paul, was reported on reliable au-
thority, however, to have arranged
for Premier Dragisa Cvetkovic and
Foreign Minister Alksander Cincar-
Markovic to leave for Vienna Sunday
night to come to terms with the
Axis, barring last-minute complica-
tions. The atmosphere was sur-
charged with the possibility of such
Government quarters said the Ger-
man minister to Yugoslavia had is-
sued a flat warning that there must
be "an immediate end of procrasti-
,nation" because Adolf Hitler was not
prepared to tolerate delay past Sun-
day night.
With this ultimatum hanging
over his head, Paul was'reliably re-
ported to have patched up his brok-
en cabinet by persuading Serbs to
take two of the positions vacated by
anti-Axis members and handing the
third portfolio to a Slovene already
in the cabinet.
New Members
The new members were said to be
Dr. Voja Gorgjevic, chairman of
the Agricultural Cooperative, as Min-
ister of Agriculture, and Dr. Drago-
mir Ikonic, former director of the
Serb Democratic Party, as Minister
of .Social Welfare.
Croatia's Vice-Governor Svetozar
Ivkovic, who resigned in protest
against the Axis program, refused
overtures to accept the Justice Min-
ister appointment.
According to the government plan,
the cabinet would be reformed to-
morrow and approve the German de-
mands in time for the trip to Vienna,

A guarded hint that Soviet Russia

as Yugoslavia was reported ready to
sign an Axis Pact.
It was Russia's Non-Aggression

Students who work for all or part
of their college expenses have gen-
eral health decidely inferior to that
of non-working students, according
to a survey conducted here by Robert
M. Perlman, M.S.P.H., and published
recently in a medical journal.
Using a control group of 50 non-
workers compared to a group of 50
workers who had spent at least four
years in the University, Mr. Perlman
gathered data from the files of the
Health Service and studied the indi-
vidual living conditions of his groups.
Out of 3,145 dispensary visits made
by both groups during the four year
period, 54 per cent were made by
workers. The average calls for work-
ers was 34 per cent to 29 per cent
for non-workers.
During the period of study 20 per
cent of the self supporting students
spent some time in the hospital, while

sons was that of infirmary admis-
sions which showed that 48 per cent
of the workers were taken in at one
or more times, while 30 per cent of
the non-workers spent some time in
the infirmary. The amount of differ-
ence in this case was good evidence
that the general health of self sup-
porting students was inferior.
The amount of time spent in the
infirmary averaged 4.44 days for
workers to an average of 1.12 days
for non-workers. The range of time
in both groups varied as much as two
to 120 days in the infirmary.
Results and conclusions obtained
from infirmary admissions and days
of confinement for both groups, along
with supplementary evidence, shows
that the general health of self sup-
porting students is definitely inferior
to that of non-workers, Mr. Perlman
