Reports Say Yugoslav Coup Contested By Croat Leader'

Win Over
Yale Team

:.

Vice-Premier
States Loyalty
To Axis Pact
Revolts Branded As Serb
Plot Against Croatia;
Autonomy Demanded
ZAGRE,;, Yugoslavia, March 29.
-(R')-Dr. Vladimir Macek, leader of
millions of Croats, was reported au-
thoritatively tonight to have insist-
ed that Yugoslavia's'new government
publish a declaration affirming this
kingdom's adherence to the Axis al-
liance. The Croat peasant leader was
said also to demand a declaration
guaranteeing Croat autonomy.
Macek, who was Vice Premier in
the overthrown cabinet of Dragisa
Cvetkovic which signed the Three-
Power Pact for Yugoslavia, was car-
ried over in the new government of
Premier General Dusan Simovic.
n osition Not Clarified
(His position, however, has not
been clarified. What course Macek
decides to take-whether to revert to
the opposition or stay in the govern-
ment-is expected to weigh heavily
on determining Yugolslavia's home
and foreign policy.)
The leader of the Croats, who
buried their differences with the
Serbs only in 1939 in a Croat home
rule agreement, was expected, mean-
while, to remain silent on all over-
tures that he be active in the new
regime at least until he can go to
Belgrade Tuesday or Wednesday andI
investigate the situation at first hand.
An important member of Macek's
intimate circle asserted that the "new
government has decidedcly won .the
confidence of all Serbs but has lost

the confidence of all Croats."
Coup A Serb Stroke
Croats say there is a widespread
feeling that the coup was a Serb
stroke directed more against Croatia
than against the Tri-Partite Pact.
Neither Macek nor other Croat
peasant party officials attended the
thanksgiving service cele brating
young King Peter's assumption of
power.
Croat suspicions are said to have
strengthened extremists who long
have wanted an independent Croatia
and have contended that autonomy
was a fiction.

That's what the campus at large
will decide at nominations next Wed-

of Quax, Drake.University Yearbook.
What's this all about? Well, next
Wednesday you'll be given a ballot
at any one of the three polling places,
Angell Hall, Main Library or Engin-

a big laugh out of it-in her ownj
words. "I loathe bigotry, prejudice,
intolerance and hatred. I believe in

..PORT EVERGLADES, Fla., March
29.-RP)--President Roosevelt sum-
moned Americans of every political
creed tonight to stand united in a
[determination that "with all our re-
zources and all our power, we shall
help those who block the dictators
in their march toward domination
of the world."
Arising from an "alliance of dictat-
or nations," the President warned, is
a threat to America, its union, its
.democracy, and its cardinal princi-
ples of freedom-a threat which
draws more tightly around us day by
day.""
No Party Politics+
But, speaking to fellow-Democrats
attending party rallies throughout
the country, Mr. Roosevelt declared
that to meet the threat nearly all
Americans had risen above the con-
siderations of party politics and had
remained devoted to cbuntry and
democratic ideals.

was in many ways repititous of other
presidential speeches in recent
months.
The very repitition served to em-
phasize blunt words.

vear, its National Collegiate tank

Piling up 61 points in the two-day
,ompetition, Matt Mann's undefeated
natators barely edged out Bob Kip-
huth's Bulldogs who were able to
score the amazing total of 58, with
-I stunning victory in the final 400-

so close.
Wayne, OSU Tied
Wayne and Ohio State had a feud
of their own far in the background
with 19 points each, Minnesota fol-
.Owing with 10. It was strictly a dual
affair with both the Wolverines and
the Bulldogs fighting it out tooth
and nail all the way.
Surprisingly enough, despite the
degree of competition, the hard-
fought races throughout, and the
superb condition of all entrants, there
were no records erased from the
books-Charley Barker's '23 flat in
the 50-yard sprint coming closest
and it merely tied an existing mark.
IBesides taking the team cham-
pionship, the Wolverines walked off
with another honor-probably as
great as winning the huge team tro-
phy- when it was announced just
before thefinal relay that the coaches
had chosen Michigan's Charley Bark-

of the year, supplanting Al Patnik,

Denouncing "buck-passing" andl
partisan government, Gov. Murray D.
Van Wagoner declared at an Alumni
Reunion luncheon here yesterday
that if certain flaws in the state's
governmental structure were not
eliminated "it would be because a
certain few influential legislators
were putting partisanship ahead of
the needs and desires of the whole
people."
"There is a need," the Governor
asserted; "to adopt a centralized tax
collection agency, to revise our ab-
ominable intangible tax law, to take
politics out of the department of agri-
culture, to provide a fair educational

real issue in labor controversies "is
whether or not one side is sharing the
burdens and advantages equally with
the other side" and added that the
approach to the problem was the en-
gineering approach, "the search for
facts before making statements."
"We sorely need in public life to-
day men whose ethics are high, and
who can make the factual, planning
approach to governmental problems,"
he said, adding that the engineer was
the man trained to fill these quali-
fications.
Claiming that tIle modern world

Van Wagoner praised the University's

Michigan fraternities may have a

resolution prepared yesterday by an
assembly of fraternity meri in Greek
Week's rushing panel.
The new plan calls for "split ses-
sion" rushing. According to Norman
Call, '42, who headed the panel, rush-
ing would begin with a two-day open
house period at all fraternities. This
would be followed by a week o; "re-
stricted" rushing during which each
rushee is to be allowed only a cer-
tain number of dates with each
house.
A two-day silence period would
follow, in which time fraternities
would send invitations to well-liked
rushees -who would then return dur-
ing the second week of rushing, a
concentrated rushing period, similar
to the system now existing. During
this second week, there would be no
