Trackmen Rated
Led by its phenomenal sophomore
hurdler, the powerful cinder squad
from Ohio State will invade Ferry
Field at 1 p.m. today to do battle
with the mighty Wolverine track
team in a dual meet which gives
promise of being one of the closest
contests in the current outdoor sea-
Michigan, on the basis of victory
over the Buckeyes in indoor competi-
tion this year and a three point edge
over them in the indoor Big Ten
meet, will be rated a slight edge over
the Ohioans today. But the Bucks
have many potential first-place win-
ners and will offer Michigan plenty
of competition in every eventfon the
Wright, Ohio State's sensational
hurdler, is almost a certainty to take
first place in both the high and low
hurdles and will probably place at
least third in the 100 yard dash.
Wright has run the high hurdles in
14.4 seconds in previous meets and
it is virtually conceded that he will

Baseball Team Loses
First Big Ten Game
Sparked by smiling Al Grant, who
limited the local lads to four scat-
tered hits, the Illinois baseball team
handed Michigan their first Confer-
ence defeat of the season, 3-2.
The Wolverine big guns failed to
explode in their customary manner
and Cliff Wise's three-run hurling
went for nought.
Michigan got off to an early start
without making a hit when Dave
Nelson led off in the first inning
with a walk and broke 'for second on,
the first pitch to Whitey Holman.
Dave went all the way to third when
catcher Bill Brewer threw the ball
into center field. Holman hit an easy

U.S. Officers
Arrest Aliens.
Hotel Employes Charged
With Prolonging Leave
NEW YORK, May 9.-('P)-Fash-
ionable hotels, clubs and restaurants
were invaded today by Immigration
Inspectors and city detectives stag-
ing the second roundup of the week
against foreigners suspected of being
in this country illegally.
The quarry this time consisted of
Italians, mostly waiters. Seized in
raids in several cities Wednesday were
160 German seamen, all charged with
overstaying theircleave in the United
Repeating Wednesday's procedure
by moving swiftly and with no ad-
vance warning, the officers made 26
arrests within three hours, and offi-
cers armed with warrants were still
engaged in the search.
Byron Uhl, District Immigration
Director, said he had no figure on the
total number rounded up but it was
unofficially estimated at between 35
and 40.
Among the places employing the
aliens were the Ambassador, Ritz-
Carlton and Pierre Hotels and a res-
taurant in Rockefeller Center's R.C.A.

Diplomats See Indication
Of New l usso-German
Understanding In Move
Sail ings To China,
Red Sea Announced
MOSCOW, May 9.-(AP)-Soviet
Russia today withdrew her recogni-
tion of three German-occupied coun-
tries whose emigre governments are
allied with the British, and diplomatic
sources relieved Joseph Stalin, in his
first act as preni ier, was patching up
his differences with Germany.
The Foreign Office sent notes to
the ministers of Yugoslavia, Bel-
gium and Norway, notifying them
their ministerial powers had lost va-
lidity. Only a month ago, Yugoslav-
ia and the Soviet Union negotiated
a friendship agreement,
Foreign diplomats saw in this an
indication of a new understanding
with Germany, one by whichStalin
hopes to further the Soviet policy
of peace and neutrality.
Whether it means Russia will join
the Axis cannot be foretold.
Germany's previous offer to con-
vert the tripartite pact into a Berlin-
Rome-Tokyo-Moscow accord was de-
clined by V. M. Molotov, then prem-
ier, during his visit to Adolf Hitler
ini November.
This became known at the conclus-
ion last month of the Soviet-Japanese
neutrality pact. However, the Pravda
article which disclosedthe refusal
said the Soviet government "at that
time". did not find it possible to ac-
cept the offer.
In any event, diplomatic circles
believe the situation has changed
since the German Ambassador, Count
Friedrich Werner von der Schulen-
berl, returned to Moscow a week ago
after talking to Hitler.
U.S. Sailings To China,
Red Sea Announced
W4SHINGTON,'May 9.-(IP)-The
direct, or almost direct, delivery of
American supplies to British forces
in the Middle East was'strongly in-
dicated today by a Maritime Commis-
sion announcement that American
ships would soon be sailing into th
Red Sea.
At the same time, the Commission
said that sailings to China would be
increased in the near future, which
some interpreted as meaning that
American help to that country in its
war with Japan would be corres-
pondingly stepped up. Detais of the
sailings and of the cargoes to be car-
ried to China, and to the Red Sea,
were carefully kept secret.
The Red Sea constitutes the eat-
ern approach to the Suez Canal, a
vital point in the British system of
Empire transportation. While major
fighting continued between British
and Italian forces in Ethiopia and
elswhere in Eastern Africa, the Red
Sea was defined as a, "combat zone"
and American vessels' were forbidden
to enter it.
Several weeks ago, however, Presi-
dent Roosevelt removed it from that
classification and said ghat American
vessels could go all the way into the
Suez Canal, itself. Taken in conjunc-
tion with recent events, the Mari-
time Commission's announcement was
of prime importance.
May Festival Audience
Has Insatiable Appetite
There is nothing so persistent as
an Ann 'Arbor concert audience,
The one of more than 5,000 attend-
ing the fourth-May Festival concert
last night in Hill Auditorium, after
calling back Miss Dorothy Maynor-
10 or 11 times and receiving one en-
core, was told in lauglng protest by

Miss Maynor:
"I'm sorry, I haven't any more."'
But nothing daunted, the audience
persisted in its enthusiasm, and fin-
ally wrung one more offering from
Miss Maynor-a Negro spiritual with-
out orchestra accompaniment.
Two numbers later, it also worked
Dr. Eugene Ormandy and the Phila-
delnhia Orchestra for two extra selec-


for trouble. Smiling Al kept ahead of
most of the batters who ,faced him
and stopped any Michigan batter
from hitting to the outfield until the
sixth inning.
As far as Cliff was concerned the
opposite thing happened. The Illi-
nois team started to hit the ball hard-
er and more men reached first base

Spring football practice comes to
a close this afternoon when Coach
Fritz Crisler sends his gridiron forces
into action on the green Stadium
turf at 4 p.m. in the annual intra-

vance notices indicate will be hotly
contested throughout.

ing staff.
Crisler has divided the squad into

More than a mere vacation grounds
for underprivileged boys, the Univer-
sity Fresh Air Camp serves as a lab-
oratory' for the diagnosis of the psy-
chological, social and educational
problems of the boys sent there.
Each year more than 300 boys are
sent to the Fresh Air Camp on Pat-
terson Lake in Livingston County with
the funds collected in the annual
Fresh Air Camp Tag Day, which will
be held Friday, May 16.
In addition to these 300 boys, 40
graduate students in sociology, psy-
chology and education spend their
summer at the camp working during
this period with the underprivileged
children to complete the requirements
of the advanced courses in their var-
ious fields.
These counselors are enrolled in
the summeir session of the Tniver-

standing of the problems of these
The observations of the counsellors
made during this summer period are
used to give social workers and edu-
cators a better understanding of the
problems of underprivileged child-
ren and of their relation to the com-
munity. The case studies made at
the Camp are followed up during the
year by fulltime coun'sellors who re-
main the constant friends and com-
panions of the boys sent to Camp.
The funds collected on Tag Day
make this 'possible. Every year or-
ganizations and student volunteers
combine their effortsin order to gain
funds to carry on the work of the
Camp for that year. \I

ment of Mechanical Engineering, di-
