meet's final five events last night at

his first defeat since Michigan lost
to Ohio State in the Big Tens two
years ago.
All told, strapping Stanley Braun-
inger's star-packed forces rolled up
a 44-point total while Michigan's Na-
tional Collegiate champions trailed
in second place with 36 points. Strict-
ly a two team affair, the rest of the
field was left far in the rear.
Defeated Inspite Of Battle
Michigan went down, but not with-
out one of the greatest battles in
AAU history. The eight-point differ-
ence between the Wolverines and
their conquerors indeed fails to tell
the tale of the breath-taking medley
relay race that closed the show last
night. With three teams qualified for
the finals, Michigan retained a slim
chance of tying for the meet title
by placing first, third and fourth in
the grand finale.
Kiefer started Chicago's triumph
parade in the medley by backstroking
the century in :57.9 to give breast-

Wins Jubilee
Contest Award
Triumphing over ninety-six schol-
arly and curious entries to the Mich-
elodeon Why For contest, Lloyd Rem-
ington, '41, won the ten dollar prize
yesterday with his profound explana-
tion of why the Spring Jubilee was
named Michelodeon.
'In 1041 A.D. the Vikings, on a
night in Erin, captured the fiery'
headed hero Michelodeon (nicknamed
Mike). Being a hero, Mike escaped
into Finland where he married a
heroine and became the father of
the illustrious Micky Finn. To cele-
brate that important event, we are
holding 'Michelodeon.'."
Questioned after he received the
prize at the Bunny Hop last night,
Remington admitted that he came
upon the solution while writing up
the thirty-third outside reading re-
port in Prof. P. Z. Snoogles' course
in Finnish Folklor-e.
Remington, who holds an M.A.,
P.D.Q. and C.C.C. in graduate folk-
lore, realized that the name Mich-
elodeon has deeper subleties than the
obvious interpretation connotates. He
pointed out that the Finnish Mich-
elodeon story is similar to story forms
found in the literature of many peo-

the Nazi political command, not an
attack upon "the Greek people'," not
upon the Southeastern order but di-
rected solely at the policy of striking
Britain wherever it forces appeared.
Upon Greece the assault wa;
launched from the frontier with Ger-
man-ocupied Bulgaria; Yugoslavia's
frontier was breached by Nazis from
Austria, Hungary and Rumania.
There was even a'suggestion that the
troops of those minor German part-
ners had joined in the attack.
, British Join Greeks
British troops were understood to
have gone into the line with the
Greeks to defend the vital Struma
River Valley. Yugoslav troops stood in
undetermined strength against the
expected Nazi lunge in the southeast
-a maneuver which would be in-
tended to turn the Greek-British
position along the Struma line.
It all happened with a breathless
suddenness, for all the fact that
it had long been foreshadowed in
Greece's stubborn resistance against
the Italians and Yugoslavia's equally
stubborn refusal to submit to the Ger-
man-dominated Axis.
It was just at dawn that the Ger-
man legions-division upon division
equipped with all the steel of blitz-
krieg-plunged ,against the Greeks
and Yugoslavs.
The Nazi high command took the
grave decision-one of many that
have been made in the traditionhl
quiet of the week-end-a few hours
after the Russians, their erstwhile
partners however silent, had made a
compact with the Yugoslavs which
clearing seemed designed to try to
dissuade away just' such a step.
Meaning Unknown
Just what this pact really Meant
remained unknown. On the face of it,
the Russians had made a treaty of
riendship and non-aggression, pre-
sumably containing no promise of
military assistance, but certainly of-
fering no comfort to those who listen
quietly to the thunder of martial mu-
sic in Berlin.
The British, slow as always to
comment upon such fleeting devel-
opments of the new history, caUi-
tiously observed-this through the
British Press Association-that Rus-
sia's action at the very least indi-
cated an intention to throw a clip-
lomatic log before the progress of
the German machine in the Bal-

posts in tomorrow's city election
burned to a new intensity yesterday
when Edward W. Staebler, former
Democratic mayor of Ann Arbor, de-
clared that several statements of the
accomplishments which the Republi-
can Party claimed to have made "do
not correspond to the facts."
Most of the statement, which were
printed in the Ann Arbor News of
April 3, poihted out improvements
and reforms that were supposedly
made by the Republicans following
the defeat of Mr. Staebler in 1931.
"Just to keep the record straight," Mr.
Staebler explained in a statement is-
sued yesterday morning, "I should
like to call attention to some of the
errors in the Republican platform."

the City at that time was entirely in
the black and had $105,597 in the
bank. "The 'overdraft' the Republi-1
can erroneously refer to," he said,
was an overdraft of State, county
and school funds (which are col-
lected by the City treasurer) of $358,
He added that "The Republicans
also claim credit for establishing 'a
complete auditing and accounting
system . . . in order that the finances
of the city may be administered on
a sound, business-like basis."' If the
Republican authors of this platform
will examine the minutes of the Com-
mon Council meeting of April 10,
1930, during my term of office, Mr.
Staebler pointed out, they will observe
that on that date the Council voted

The Honorable William S. Culberston,
former Ambassador to Chile, told
members of the Thirteenth Annual
School of Business Administration
Conference at a banquet yesterday
in the Union.
There are three methods by which
we can assist future investments in a
post-war economy, Culbertson point-
ed out; these are: the stabilization of
currency on the gold standard; the
industrialization of many nations to
increase their wealth creation and
purchasing power; the legal security
for the flow of capital between na-

for the world trade of the future.
