Drama Season
To Star Na gel,
Madge Evans
Headed by such outstanding actors
as Conrad Nagel, Madge Evans, Lu-
ther Adler and Sylvia Sydney, a gal-
axy of theatrical stars will bring to
Ann Arbor one of the finest Drama
Seasons held here in recent years.
The first play will open May 19 and
the festival will continue through
June 21.
Initial play of the group will be
the James Thurber-Elliott Nugent
comedy of campus life, "The Male
Animal," which was a Broadway hit
last year and an equally popular show
on the road. Conrad Nagel, former
screen star who has been devoting his
talents in recent years to the field
of radio, will play the leading role.
Ilka Chase To Appear
Ilka Chase, stage, screen and radio
star will appear in the Gertrude Law-
rence role in "Skylark," which will
run the second week of the drama
festival. The comedy by Samson Ra-
phaelson ran last year on Broadway
and will provide a new vehicle for
the versatile Miss Chase, who has re-
cently made many appearances on the
lecture platform throughout the
country. '
"Ladiestin Retirement," termed by
many critics the best mystery play
of latecseasons, will feature Ruth
Gordon, known for her screen ap-
pearances as Mary Todd in "Abe Lin-
coln in Illinois," Victoria in "Dis-
raeli" and Mrs.sEhrlich in "Dr. Ehr-
lich's Magic Bullet." Like the two
preceding plays, "Ladies in Retire-
ment" has enjoyed a successful sea-
son on Broadway and the road the
past year.
"Man And Superman"
George Bernard Shaw's work will
again be performed at the Lydia Men-
delssohn as "Man and Superman" will
be presented the fourth week of the
festival, Madge Evans, whose appear-
ance last year in "The World We
Make" brought requests for her re-
turn, will play a leading part, oppo-
site Hiram Sherman, who will be re-
membered by Ann Arbor audiences
for his portrayal of Autolycus in last
year's "Winter's Tale."
Concluding the season will be Clif-
ford Odets' hit "Golden Boy," with
Luther Adler playing the role he cre-
ated on Broadway. His co-star in the
recent success "The Gentle People"
- will play opposite him in "Golden
Boy," as Sylvia Sidney will appear in
the role of the prize fighter's girl
friend. She will be remembered too,
for her screen roles in "Dead End,"
"Fury" and "The Trail of the Lone-
some Pine," among others.
Windt Will Direct
Prof. Valentine B. Windt of the
speech department, who directed the
season last year, will return again
this year as director, with Mrs. Lu-
cille W. Walz as business manager
and James D. Murnan as company
manager. Counter sale of season tick-
ets will open Thursday, May 1, at the
Garden Room of the Michigan
League, with mail orders being filled
before that date.
Patrons will receive the complete
announcement with their order

To General Meeting
Demonstration Plans
Will Be Discussed
A former student of the University
-Senator Burton K. Wheeler, '05L,
of Montana-will return to Ann
Arbor May 5 to address the annual
student peace rally.
The senior Democratic senator, an
outspoken foe of the President's for-
eign policy, accepted the invitation
of the Campus Peace Council to be
its keynote speaker at the traditional
spring peace demonstration after
weeks of negotiating to fit the local
rally into his crowded schedule.
Wheeler is at present on a national
barnstorming tour to personally bring
the position of Administration foes
before the people. ,
Nominal leader of the group
of approximately 75 Congressmen
pledged to opposition to the Presi-
dent's foreign policy, Wheeler will
bring to the campus the silver tongue
which friends say first elected him
a United States Senator in 1922. He
has been in the Senate continously
since then, ran for vice-president as
a Progressive in 1924 with the elder
LaFollette andt figured prominently
as a presidential candidate in the
last election.
Though he declined to oppose the
third term aspirations of the Presi-
dent, he has since become a bitter
foe, paralleling the leadership he
took in the battle over the court re-
organization in 197. Wheeler and
his associates beat the President on
that issue, but lost the first round
of the present bout when Congress
passed the lease-lend bill by substan-
tial majorities. According to his
own statement he is now taking that
fight before the American public in
a series of radio and platform ad-
dresses throughout the counry, son-
sored by the loose coalition of 'peace'
groups which have formed in recent
There will be a general meetipg
of the Campus Peace Council at 8

students interested in working on this
committee are invited to attend.
Co-Op Group
To Interview
The first interviews for men in-
terested in membership in student
cooperative houses next semester will

Mascott, chairman of the Interco-
operative Council Personnel Commit-
tee announced yesterday.
All men students wishing to live

cooperatives are requested to apply

Against odds figured as worse than

of between 50000 and 80,000 men to-

The heroic Greek infantry, with

Fascist dive-bombers were said to
have blasted away at the structure,

bursts from Italian artillery were de-

FDR Orders.
Miners To End
(By The Associated Press)
President Roosevelt intervened in
the coal dispute last night, asserting
in a public statement that production
"must be resumed, and promptly" in
the interest of national defense.
He proposed that the northern op-
erators of the Appalachian area and
United Mine Workers, who came to
an understanding last week on a new
wage contract, resume production un-
der the terms of that agreement.

Mr. Bryan proposed two remedies
to combat Axis penetration into Ar-
gentina and other South American
countries. The first involves not only
the increase in our sales to that
country, but more important, the in-
crease in the goods that we buy
from Argentina.
Our buying from Argentina will
not compete with producers of simi-
lar products in our country, he ex-
plained. In the case of beef, which
would be their main export, we would
buy only canned beef, and little or
no American beef is sold as tinned
meat. Cattle growers have admit-
ted that the importation of $50,000,-
000 worth of Argentine tinned beef
