With one third of total state-wide precincts tabulat-
ed Senator Earl L. Buhrans (R) and Alfred B. Con-
nable (R) were leading their Democratic incum-
bent opponents by approximately 34,000 votes in the
race for two seats on the University of Michigan
Board of Regents when The Daily went to bed last
The Democratic candidates, incumbents Franklin
M. Cook and Chales F. Hemans, trailed their opponents
with totals of 82,740 and 80,173 Burhans and Con-
nable polled 114,558 and 114,001 votes each out of
the 1,087 precincts counted.
The returns came principally from predominately
Republican outstate areas, but included a few pre-
cincts from traditionally Democratic Wayne County.
Leroy C. Smith, Republican aspirant for State
Highway Commissioner, led G. Donald Kennedy,
Democratic incumbent, by 17,847 votes also on the
basis of unofficial returns from nearly a - third of
the state's precincts in Monday's election.
Dr. Eugene B. Elliott, state superintendent of public
instruction, led his ticket with a lead of more than'

43,000 votes over Prof. Edward W. McFarland, Demo-
crat, a former chairman of the state liquor control
Election observers said Smith's lead was compara-
tively slender and indicated a close race when the
ta uiation reaches more deeply into Wayne County's
1,221 precincts.
Informal, and entirely inconclusive analysis, dis-
closed Smith had an average of about 18 votes a pre-
cinct in the outstate count, which would send him into
Wayne County with a lead of something like 38,000
votes. Republicans said during the campaign a 35,000
vote margin would be sufficient to overcome normal
Democratic advantages in Wayne, but Democrats said
this was wishful thinking and that Smith could not
win with anything short of a 50,000 vote lead out-
The 45 Waynd precincts, all from Dearborn, gave
Kennedy an advantage of less than 2 to 1.
With one third of the total state precincts counted
Wynand Wichers (R) led his Democratic rival Francis
Comfort by approximately 3,00 votes. Only 20,000

In Ford Struggle;
No Strike In 'Steel
Federal Conciliator Dewey Is Confident.
Of Possibility Of Ford-Union Discussion;
Philip Murray To Confer With Roosevelt
(By The Associated Press)
DETROIT, April 7.-Federal and state mediators sought today to
iiarrow down the "points at issue" in the strike which has brought virtual
paralysis to the vast industrial empire of the Ford Motor Co.
James F. Dewey, Federal conciliator, expressed confidence today thats
he would get the company and union representatives around a conference
table, something that,has never occurred before in the 38 years history of
the Ford Company. Coincidentally, the National Labor Relations Board
ordered collective bargaining elections to be held in the company plaits
within the next 45 days.
Relative quiet prevailed at the big Ford plant in suburban River
Rouge, where some 85,000 hourly rated workers have been made idle by
the strike called last Tuesday night. The company's closing of branches
throughout the nation and its stoppage of deliveries by independent sup-
plying concerns has brought the total number affected by the suspen-
sion of work to an estimated 200,000.
Dewey today characterized the only remaining obstacles to "face-to-
face" negotiations as "side issues," such as the evacuation of men who have
remained in the beleaguered Rouge ---
plant in suburban Dearborn since
the strike began.H

Nazis Near Sofia
Germans Seeking To Break Yugoslavia
From The Air As In Polish Campaign;
Disruption Of Communications Claimed
(ByTieAssociated Press)
BERN, SWITZERLAND, April 7.-Upon a vast and bloody battle-
fi ont the Allied troops-Yugoslavs, Greeks and British Imperials-met
and apparently held today the full shock of the German offensive to
West and South.
At the end of the second day of general-warfare in the Southeast re-
ports to this neutral center indicated that in the bitterest fighting-extend-
ing 750 miles from the north of Yugoslavia to Greece's Struma River posi-
tions above the Aegean Sea-no single major Allied position had fallen
to the Nazis.
Into Yugoslavia; apparently in the mountainous districts along the
Bulgarian frontier, the Germans were reported to have thrust to a dis-
tance of 25 miles, but the available information indicated'none of these
advances broke any vital defense area.
The Greeks sent out word that, while they had lost one fort, the
harsh and twisted terrain of the Struma gorges had been left gray with
the bodies of the invaders.
The Germans themselves, claiming general advances and the destruc-
tion of unspecified Allied positions, warned the people to expect no such
"spectacular successes as occurred in/
the campaign of the west, although
h N declaring their confidence in ulti-
Je mate victory.

Native Born Kentuckian
Will Present Program
Here Tomorrow
Songs heretofore heard only in the
mountain country of the South will
be presented by John Jacob Niles in
his program, at 8:30 p.m. today in the
Lydia Mendelssohn.
A native born Kentuckian, Niles
has lived most of his life in com-
munities where traditional American
balladry is sung. His tenor voice has
been trained, but he has been care--
ful not to let the training interfere
with the genuine performance re-
quired of folk singers.
Nilesreceived a background in mu-
sic from his parents, his father being
a singer of folk music and his mother
being a -convent trained musician.
However,' he taught himself the trick
of recording music as it is sung with
a kind of musical shorthand. He first
began recording folk-music when he
was 15 at Negro revivals. Many of the
songs he then recorded are included
in his programs today.
The music Niles will sing has been
preserved by descendants of the 17th
and 18th Century English, Scotch,
Welsh, and Irish settlers. Owing to
the almost inaccessibility of the

In the skies, Nazi pilots and the
warplanes of the Allies-British and
Yugoslavia particuldrly - fought a
mighty struggle which spread out be-
yond the areas of the ground combat
to take in Bulgaria, Rumania and

and hosts to the German divisions
vhich sprang yesterday from those
,ampaign grounds to open the Greek-
Yugoslav invasion.
Transportation Disrupted
The RAF, the British announced,
heavily bombed German troop con-
zentrations, railway stations, factor-
es and motor transport shops in
Sofia, the warbase capital of Bul-
"Great damage" was claimed.
Hungary, Bulgaria and Rumania
complained Yugoslav bombers had
aided Pecs, Szeged, Arad, Temesvar,
and Kustendil - all long-established
Nazi air and land bases. The specific
work attributed to Yugoslav pilots
>.ncluded the bombing of an oil train
near the Hungarian-Austrian fron-
ier and three Hungarian railway
stations serving Nazi military traffic.
RAF Bombs German Troops
The Germans, who appeared to be
seeking to break Yugoslavia in bits
from the air as they had done in
Poland, claimed the country's entire
system of transport and communica-
tion had been "fatally" disrupted and
that at least 98 Yugoslav planes had
been destroyed.
They pictured Bulgaria, Rumania
